Face The Music
A highbrow classical music-based gameshow where three celebrities Face the Music.
Face The Music
Taken from the first series of the gameshow where family competes against family. Bob Monkhouse was the host. The jackpot for this original series was £1000 - a fortune in 1980.
Family Fortunes (close)
Central Production. We don't have the opening titles, but here are the closing credits with Bob Monkhouse.
After a break, Family Fortunes returns with a new look and a new host - Les Dennis.
Another new set of opening titles.
Les Dennis was still the host at the end of the nineties
New titles for the 2000 series, still hosted by Les Dennis. Notice the fact that the families huddle together during the titles when they are being introduced before taking their place at the side of the set.
All Star Family Fortunes
A new celebrity version of the show presented by Vernon Kay. The revival was decided on after the popularity of the show after the final of Ant and Dec's Gameshow Marathon in 2005 was Family Fortunes (Vernon Kay was in that final, but lost to Carol Vorderman).
Famous People Famous Places
Famous People Famous Places was a general knowledge gameshow presented by William G Stewart. The show was commissioned by Thames and was only transmitted locally.
The Feelgood Factor
Three one-off specials designed to get people healthy and fit. Presented by Eamonn Holmes and Myleene Klass.
Clips are from the opening and end titles to the third and last show.
Apparently Tim Vine, the host of this Channel 4 game show, is 6 foot 2. I bet you didn't know that.
Film Buff Of The Year
The lushious Debbie Greenwood, two teams of high school kids (a 2nd year, a 4th year and a 6th year), the "Spinning Gold Disc" round, head-to-head button bashing games like Paperboy and Track And Field as well as a score-keeping BBC Micro called "Eugene" all form this quiz show from the late 80's. The overall winners of the series won (wait for it) a BBC Micro for their school! Shown on BBC1 just before the 5.30 news
Four Square was a puzzle/quiz game hosted by Michael Groth and then John Sachs. The series was originally produced at BBC Birmingham and later at Elstree.
A very eighties theme tune introduced this particular "fast moving quiz game."
Four Square (Theme & Maze Music)
1989 BBC Television
The theme and incidental music was composed by Ian McKim and recorded at Toad Hall Studios (now closed), Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow. MP3s of the theme and maze music are available to download.
Friends Like These
Gameshow from the early noughties presented by Ant and Dec, and later (as in this clip) by Ian Wright. 2 teams of 5 friends, one team male, the other female, compete in one-on-one challenges to win a holiday (usually to Ibiza funnily enough) for all 5 of the winning team. The final round was called "The Decider" where the 5 members of the winning team would answer questions individually about the person they thought they knew most in the team to win a place on the holiday. If they got it right, their chair went white, if not it went red. The ultimate test of friendship was whether the white chairs would risk it all for the sake of the red chairs and answer one more question. Get it right, they all went on the holiday, get it wrong, they all went home!
