Funnily enough another of Mike's sons got retconned- Mark Redman (who we saw on the ITV3 run back in December) got aged up by 2 years when he reappeared in the early 90s.
We see Hilda's final episode next Wednesday too- which was the first time the show was broadcast on Xmas day when it wasn't a Monday or Wednesday (and there were a couple of occasions in the 70s when it wasn't shown even when it was a broadcast day). It's been on every Xmas day since, bar 1993 when ITV strangely ran a bog standard Saturday schedule.
I seem to remember reading later on they used a Windows 2000 computer with a hard drive full of DV files to generate the channel.

That's embarrasing! And I don't think I could take such a forecast seriously.
Doesn't explain why they couldn't show the VHS copy when they've shown such things before though.
I've got a video of it here:
It was actually a nightmare to digitise that video as each non-sync cut led to the picture and sound drifting out of sync a bit more each time, so I had to keep starting and stopping and captured it as several videos then stitched it together in Adobe Premiere.
There's so many soaps in prime time there's barely a place to slot in a gameshow now!
But on the other hand they can sell it abroad, repeat it and flog DVDs which will bring in a fair bit of money, which they can't do with the lottery gameshows (well, Challenge have repeated some of them I guess).
