The Sandie Shaw Supplement was a television show hosted by 1960s British singer Sandie Shaw in 1968 and also the name of her fourth original album released in November of that year by Pye Records and re-issued shortly afterwards on the Marble Arch label. The TV show included Shaw singing the songs from the album.

Most of the shows have since been erased by the BBC, after Shaw asked for them to put the film on videotape. Only two episodes (episodes 2 & 3) have survived, after being returned to the BBC from overseas in the early 1990s. Episode 2 was shown on BBC2 shortly after being recovered. The audio tracks to some episodes have survived and pirate versions can sometimes be found on the internet but are generally hard to find.

TV Episodes[edit]

Broadcast Tuesdays on BBC1 at 9:55pm, with the exception of episode 6 broadcast at 11:00pm.

1 1 "Eyes, Nose, Mouth and a Heartbeat[1]" Mel Cornish 10 September 1968
With the music of love and sex, Sandie looks at love and love looks right back at Sandie. And everybody searches for definitions. Love is the Moment of Truth, which leads a person to see it like it isn't, through rose-coloured contact lenses. Love is bodies and babies and soul and spirit and Mrs. Robinson. Love and Sandie stare it out. Do they come to a conclusion? Does a revelation take place? Don't miss tonight's exciting episode...! This week's guests: Alan Price and The Embraceables .

Or hit a quicksand. This week's guests: John Walker & The Roadrunners .
