Is it a kind of dream?

By | June 6, 2019

UKGameshows received a query and forwarded it to us, and I have to say I’ve drawn a complete blank. Anyone?

Contestants had to work their way along a giant board which culminated at a white van.  The quizmasters were a family (?) that owned the white van.  The opening credits had scenes of the family having a picnic while the van would roll off down a hill without them. 
No one I speak to has any recollection of this and it’s possible my description above is incorrect but I’m sure it exists in some form.
Does this sound familiar?

Sounds like a less extreme version of Hold Tight, but I suspect it isn’t. Does this ring any bells for anyone?

In other news, Emma Willis is being tapped up to host Pants on Fire for E4, a show where a celebrity panel try and work out which contestant has actually done an unbelievable thing. A bit like that challenge from Wie is De Mol? the other year, where it was quite funny.

    I’ve no idea what it is, but from the description, my immediate thought was that if Trev and Simon’s Sister Brothers fronted a full-on gameshow, that would be the structure.

    I can’t help but wonder, on that note, if the van family were established characters in some other right. Did the Krankies ever host a gameshow?

      I can’t help but think that it’s something I would have remembered and watched if I was about at the time, but it rings no bells. Was it regional perhaps?

    No idea on the gameshow (possibly for children?) but the Kaleidoscope group on Facebook are pretty good at identifying half-remembered TV programmes (and checking if they still exist in the archives).
