Music Connection: OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN

International Television Appearances

This list is an attempt to compile known television appearances worldwide. Where a show repeats often, as in the case of the Saturday Night Live appearance, I have listed only the first airing date for the show. I DO NOT have video copies of all the shows on this list (although I am trying!) and have therefore had to rely on numerous sources for information. If you can provide any missing information, please email me.

The list is alphabetized by the name of the show or category (as in Olivia's Television Specials, which are listed together), with multiple appearances listed chronologically beneath the name of the show. Wherever possible, I have attempted to list the exact title of the show, i.e., "Late Night with David Letterman" instead of just "David Letterman" or "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee" instead of just "Regis and Kathie Lee."

Format: Name of show, (date), [time (rounded up to the nearest minute)], country of broadcast, notes on Olivia's involvement in the show.

This site is currently under construction. Appearances past 1996 have yet to be added.
