Rather wonderfully, Chris (well worth a Youtube follow for this sort of thing) has uploaded the first ever episode of CBBC’s Get Your Own Back.
A few things of note, thirty years on:
- I always really liked the Brain Box bit – good music, fun physical element, but it really needed to be either a) a bit longer or b) needed some other element as there’s not enough score variance in it really. This is less of an issue when the show stopped being eliminatory.
- Has any other show used the “obvious correct answers beginning with a letter which yours cannot” mechanic, from the Gunk Dunk? I always thought this was a mechanic that’d work pretty well in a more comedy-based quiz and I don’t think I’ve seen it used anywhere.
I also highly recommend Jack’s Throwback Attack’s interview with Dave Benson-Philips.
