Here’s something fun that turned up on Youtube last night, a full episode of the rather unpolished first series of BBC daytime favourite Turnabout.
(Do subscribe to Chris Toone’s channel, there’s loads of really interesting stuff on there.)
Apart from obvious format differences, here were the things I picked up on:
- How tiny is that set?
- Having red and orange as similar colours is a bit unfortunate.
- The clock noises are a choice.
- It’s quite odd having the contestants take so long to make their moves at the sphere board. Curling has to prompt them quite a lot.
- You’re not allowed to answer questions if you’ve got no spheres on the board seems like one of those rules which seems clever at the time but really is just kicking a losing contestant when they’re down.
