Challenge - June 2016 onwards


2) After the break, they had the dodgiest cut I’ve ever seen, ‘welcome back to [abrupt cut] Player 2 is on [their score]’.


That'll be because in the original broadcast, Roy would welcome viewers back from the break with a reminder of the phone number for the "Viewer's Catchphrase" competition. There's usually a (often less-jarring) cut at the beginning of the episode where Roy refers to said competition too.

Worst ever tv related problem you've ever had?

As a toddler so I’m told, I once put the remote control in the VCR player.


I put a a slice of toast in ours when I was 4. I thought if you'd press Play the slice of toast would appear on-screen.

Needless to say, it didn't.

I also woke up in the middle of the night during my college days and switched over to one of the "naughty" channels, not knowing my mum was taping a repeat of Bullseye on Challenge...
