Blockbusters - The ITV Quiz Game - Featuring Bob Holness
About this deal
there is a cool hand dance at the end to copy ( we will link the YouTube of that – but it was the 80s so excuse both the quality of the video, and the the hairstyles!) We do try to get our students to do this if they win, with varying levels of success. Teacher Instructions Tyne Tees and Yorkshire: Around 70 episodes from Tuesdays to Thursdays at 6.30pm between 11 July to 29 December 1995. Bob brought out his glove-puppet friend Harold the Hedgehog on the show on a semi-regular basis, apparently quite often as a result of requests from contestants and/or viewers. A double team who appeared on the show in 1985 brought in a spider puppet named Horace, whom they later sent to Bob, ostensibly to be a friend for Harold, but we don't seem to recall Horace making any further appearances. However, Harold did reappear, at the request of Sandi Toksvig, on at least one occasion during Bob's tenure as host of Call My Bluff many years later: Bob and Harold between them helped Sandi to define one of the words.
Anglia, Central and Thames: Aired three times a week from January 1990 onwards on Mondays to Thursdays at 5.10pm and aired Home and Away at 6pm. Days of the week changed and additional episodes were added as well to make it four per week on occasions. Sky One: Mondays to Fridays at 7:00pm from 18 April to 30 September 1994 before moving to 6:30pm from 28 November 1994 to 17 February 1995.
For the 1980 version, the contestant would play the Gold Run from a section of Bill Cullen's podium, which would rotate outwards and to the right (or left from Bill's point of view), with a smaller microphone for this purpose. The 1987 set, meanwhile, instead had a gold-colored railing/handhold flip up from the floor for the contestant to stand at. Granada: Aired 2–3 episodes most weeks at 5.10pm. From April to August, it was moved to 3.20pm. Completed in January 1994.
The answer to the question will start with the letter. ( this is what makes it such a great game for ESL and Native English Students. Perhaps not an outtake as such, but two unusual answers were given when Bob asked the question, "What 'N' is meant by the phrase, 'Hit him on the Boko?'" One member of the double team buzzed and said, "Nob". The question was duly passed to the single player, who said' "Nag". The answer was in fact "Nose", so it could be argued that 'Nob' (not in the rude sense, obviously) was actually on the right lines. Henry Marsh and Paul Boross composed a different, yet audibly similar, theme for the Aspel/BBC series.Collect as many Movie Cards in this round as you can in the 30 seconds provided. If you do a fantastic job and complete your three movies in time, you can move on to your rival's cards too. Stealing their cards will edge you closer to victory. In later series, a bell (annoyingly loud, might we add?) would ring indicating when an advertising break was about to talk place. Bob would read out one more question before going into the ads. What purpose this served is unknown, but it seems most likely that it arose because breaks previously only occurred in between games, therefore there had to be an indicator that a game was due to be interrupted. No excuse for such an ear-splitting bell, though.
If you do not toggle the current question off you will not be able to see the next question when it is selected. E.g. both question A and B are selected below – but only question A can be seen.He/she'll be doing that Gold Run - not right now, but in a couple of minutes' time - don't you dare go away!" For the record, the BBC2 editions in 1997 began at 4pm (pushing Today's the Day to a later slot of 5.30pm) but later moved to 1.40pm. Sky One's revival in 2000 aired at 6pm. Versions on Challenge and Comedy Central both went out after dinner, at 8pm. As you see, the board is completely computer-generated. If you look closely, you can see the monitor that the contestants see the board in. The bigger image is (obviously) what we viewers see.
