I want them to show reruns of.......

It's A Knockout (the original series that were hosted by Stuart "HA!.....HA!.....HA!" Hall)

I want someone from the BBC, ITV, or Ch4 to make a concerted effort to dip into the archives and retrieve every single episode and have it on our screens by Christmas. Please.

The recent attempts to revive the show were rather lame and so the only redemption is in bringing the originals back.

They were set in amazing locations (such as castles etc) across Europe and the sets were fantastic and actually looked like the set designers had made a real effort. The lighting was pretty good too (most of the shows were filmed at night) and added to the ambience of the show.

Please please please bring it back. It was such good fun! :funky:

Wish You Were Here?..... (the original series hosted by Judith Chalmers and the bloke called Brian Somethingorother)

Although the old programmes would serve no real purpose now it would be quite special to once again hear that heavenly theme tune (the original one and not the crummy newer themes) :angel_not

Of course, it would also be nice to be able to secure a weekend break or summer vacation at the prices stated in those originals but I couldn't see that ever happening really. Shame.

I can still recall some of the holidays that featured on the programme, such as beachfront breaks in a dune hut priced at £39 for two persons, with the option of shower and washing facilites at an extra £3.50.......beat that! Smile

Come back Judith, all is forgiven. (just don't wear your bikini)

Surely you could find a nightly 2am slot for them.......

John Carter? He lives up my road and, yes, he really does wear safari jackets.

Aren't there enough holiday programmes now? And I can think of thousands of other things I'd rather see than Judith Chalmers' leathery face.

Can't remember what it's called, but the one about a nuclear explosion, or was it a superbug, but it wiped out most of the population. anyway it was good. It was an english production and filmed in the late seventies, although there was a more recent similar jobby. Actshoooaly I think it might have been called Survivor!Blush

Alias Smith and Jones and Arthur of the Britons would do nicely too.

Neighbours - from the start!

Brookside - Im ashamed to say I loved it in the 90s. It was the thing to watch in our household. Then it just took a drastic tumble downhill.

Oh yes, a serving of Ben Murphy and Oliver Tobias would do very nicely indeed!
