A different side to Kenneth More…
Our Founder, Nick Pourgourides, tells how surprised he was to learn how quiet Kenny was at home. With thanks to Talking Pictures TV. The interview originally aired as part of Kenneth More Day.
This week our founder, Nick Pourgourides, opens up the archives to examine some of Kenneth More’s personal items. The first of which is a silver heart award from 1955, bestowed by the Variety Club of Great Britain.
40 years later the award would reappear at a Variety Club lunch in the Lancaster Ballroom of the Savoy to celebrate Kenny’s 40 years of show business, for which he received another silver heart in special recognition.
With thanks to Talking Pictures Television for the use of the clip which showed originally as part of Kenneth More Day on July 12th 2019
“I am so proud to be the daughter of Kenneth More and I am also so grateful for Nick Pourgourides for promoting my father through KennethMore.com and helping Talking Pictures TV with a day in his honour on July 12th”

“Kenny is always remembered with warm happy memories of love…A Kenneth More Day is something very special to me…. A time for us all to think of him with great affection. With thanks to Talking Pictures but especially to my friend Nick Pourgourides, for all that he has done and continues to do in keeping his memory alive.

“Only a year ago, I was saddened to see how little presence there was for man who had given so much to the British entertainment industry and the public, over four consecutive decades. A year on, things are changing. Most importantly we have an official website, social media channels spreading the word, and press coverage building. July 12th has always been a poignant date, but at least this year it marks something positive, with Talking Pictures TV dedicating a whole day’s worth of programming in his honour. I’ve been filled with joy in meeting and receiving so many messages from people who are as fond of Kenny as I am. There’s still more to do in reminding people of his great career and there are some exciting plans afoot. Let’s keep on keeping on!”
