So I saw a link to this earlier: an entire episode of The Krypton Factor from its first series in 1977. You’ll need to excuse the quality, and it’s broken up into parts, but it’s fascinating, sort of a bit crap but still good. Of note: the rubbish assault course – I believe that was changed to something closer to what we know and love soon after (although the reasoning behind the headstarts is quite interesting), the Personality round as voted for by the public, and Gordon Burns being a hip young gunslinger.
There’s another episode on the guy’s channel as well.
In other news, I’m afraid there will be no episode of Ben Justice’s Top 100 UK Game Shows Of All Time this Friday as he’s not had time, but hopes to resume next week.
