Gilbert Harding regularly appeared on the BBC television panel show What's My Line? as a panellist, having been the presenter of the very first episode in 1951. A panel of four had to guess the unusual occupations of a number of challengers. On 12th April, 1953, Harding was a panellist when Walt Disney made an appearance as a celebrity challenger. As Harding had no children himself, he gifted the cel to Jo, the wife of the show's producer T. Leslie Jackson.
