It’s Christmas!

By | December 22, 2016

It can’t have escaped your attention that it’s Christmas, and really there’s not much likely to be going on over the next fortnight, although we’ll still be about and we’ll have a Show Discussion page for Teeny-Tiny Blankety Blank on Saturday, obviously.

In the meantime Dan Leitch’s Youtube Channel has been uploading loads of Christmas specials lately. Here’s one that seems especially relevant, a Pop Quiz Christmas Special from 1984. A two-episode reboot of Pop Quiz with Mike Read and loads of eighties stars airs on Wednesday 28th December and 4th January on BBC4 at 9:30.

    A bit of a pointless article about Pointless in today’s press, about a fact that most people have known since about…ooh…2009?

        *cough*
        If you’d like to go back to my ‘Watching Telly’ recording report of Pointless (Show 22) back in July 2009 – I did write…

        “Alexander stands to the right of the column at a podium identical to contestants, Richard is at the edge of the set sitting infront of another big screen used to display the in-game question categories, scores and highest/lowest answers, at a desk with a laptop (although it’s not switched on as all his notes are on paper which he puts on the keyboard).

        Only taken them 7 years to notice.
        Front page splash for the Daily Mirror next week.
        Barak Obama becomes President of the United States.

    Just turned on Talking Pictures TV – somewhere in the upper levels of the EPG – and stumbled on a particularly shambolic Christmas edition of Runaround, I think from 79. According to the schedule, there’s another one on Christmas day, too.

    Amazing find! Hat Tip to David Cooper, a full episode of Krypton Faktor on Sat1 which I’ve been wanting to watch for ages and intend to watch tomorrow.

    Always remember seeing clips where the assault course is set in some sort of metalwork factory.
