Yes, a long time ago now, that page is way older that Telegantic Megavision was when I "wrote" it (ie, emailed the guy with some info). As I probably said on there, at the start it was a really boring programme and then halfway through it had a pretty radical revamp and got in a whooping crew and just became the most generic Saturday morning show you'd ever seen. But I recorded it every week because I recorded any old rubbish in those days, plus it showed Warner Bros cartoons, and you could fast forward through it in about fifteen minutes.
Gregg Scott has found the script to Richard Whitely's Gotcha and has uploaded it to Twitter, starting here:
Here’s a treat for ye. Have just found this at the bottom of a box in the cellar. The actual script for the entire Noel’s House Party Gotcha on Richard Whiteley. Here’s the link to the whole, uncut joy:https://t.co/0oixIfcKoc And over this tweet & next, the 7 pages... pic.twitter.com/67lYRJcct3
Insanely interesting! I don't think one realises how much planning went into the Gotcha segments.
I suppose there had to be as they only had one go at it and so one mess up ruined the whole shoot. They had to plan for every eventuality too. The ones like Richard Whiteleys, which took place at their families place of work as they've not as much control over the environment, they've got to work with what they've got.
Interesting to note that on the last page Noels name is left off, as if the rest of the script isn't going to cause suspicion.
Incidently, Annabel Giles was on Richard Herring's podcast the other week and her Gotcha came up in the conversation as she was the only person to catch them out. A combination of spotting a hidden camera and noticing the same comms vehicle as she'd worked with the week before on another programme:

And here is that failed Gotcha:

In the 1960s television series, Batman was a far less dark character and a lot more camp, with the much-missed Adam West in the title role, assisted by Burt Ward as his trusty sidekick, Robin – both of them in costumes made of fabric, not rubber muscles. It was very much a beautifully crafted piece of theatre, with wonderfully hammy performances, hilariously terrible puns and iconic music.
Twitter user, YUXLOA, shared a clip from the series in which Bruce Wayne has to do some quick thinking, and Adam West has to do some sharp acting – which he did. Enjoy.
No actor should ever be cast as Batman unless they ace this scene in a screen test which then gets leaked online. Indeed, all former Batmen ought to record their own versions. https://t.co/KdBhEMcJkM
