Prior to joining the New Seekers Lyn Paul had appeared on television as a young girl in early episodes of Coronation Street. In 1967 she had also appeared on Simon Dee's Dee Time (BBC1) with The Nocturnes.

The New Seekers made their first television appearance on The Frankie Howerd Show two years later, before Lyn Paul had joined the group. These pages list most - though not all - of the New Seekers' appearances on television in the UK and the USA in the years that followed.
