I'd have thought how dreadful it was would have been the biggest giveaway.

Countdown Masters was notable for being the point where Carol started putting up the letters rather than just doing the numbers round.

Am I missing something? What happened before that?


From the Countdown Wiki:
Quote:
In early episodes she was only called upon to provide the occasional numbers solution, alternating with Dr. Linda Barrett. When Linda left at the end of Series 2, Carol took on the role of solving unsolved numbers games full-time. After the departure of Lucy Summers in 1989, she began putting up the letters and numbers as well.

Cathy Hytner also acted as hostess in the early seasons. Carol and Linda only appeared when writing the numbers game solutions (both the contestants and their own) on the board. Whitely made a point of introducing Carol or Linda partway through the show, during the first numbers round.

Another YouTube find. This being something I remember requesting to see years ago... and it's finally emerged.

Jenny Hull and Eamonn Holmes experiencing a leak in the studio. They cleverly decide to just stay stood in it as it gets worse, but the audience smartly all brought umbrellas with them.

Then they merely nearly drown inside the studio, the audience being windswept away and then being decapitated by the set.

It's How Do They Do That? and they even show afterwards how they did it.



Now we just need to find the one with Eamonn hanging off the the signage at BBC Television Centre.

Absolutely one of the most vivid TV memories from my childhood, amazing to see it again!! Although the older me now notices the switch from video to film halfway through :p

About the same time was the episode of Knowing Me, Knowing You where Alan accidentally kills one of the guests - done so realistically (with a brief cut to a BBC2 caption slide) the 6/7 year old me genuinely wasn't sure if it was real or not.

Thanks Smile Wasn't going to upload it at first, as I thought it was already on Youtube, but good job I did research first on Youtube instead of going with my gut instinct..

The temptation to edit that National Lottery invasion footage around Eamonn's comments at 1:54... Wink

Here's a BBC Two Wales continuity from 2001 posted by J Harper (previously ROTSSIsalive)

But those Comedy Zone idents/promos, man. Was it ever made to make people laugh or feel haunted by the terrifying early-CGi Anne Robinson?

Is that Matt Lucas voicing "Anne"?

It definitely does sound like him, so I think it could be Matt Lucas...

Not sure if it's gold or not, but a BBC One Midlands ident that seems to be a mix of the 2006 and 2009 reedit of the Kites ident. Did Network have this ident or ever use it or is it a rare post 2005 bout of mild creativty from the Mailbox?
