This clip is from an early variety/talent show hosted by Bert Newton. In this episode, the contestants perform in a barbecue setting with the other contestants looking on.

The format of these early talent shows was often copied from US shows. Adding a barbecue theme and a casual, friendly setting gives the show a more Australian feel.
