Such was the massive media coverage that 'our' The Battle of The Bands
received, that even to this day, many 'copy' and use the title for
competitions being staged or even just in headline titles.
I do not believe that any The Battle of the Bands titled competition
existed before my BBC 1 broadcast event, please correct me if I am
wrong, therefore any subsequent event using the title is just copying.
Bernard Cochrane a veteran of the entertainment industry with many
credits to his name, brought the original televisied The Battle of the Bands
competition to BBC 1 Television in 1983.
