Shaw Taylor was the host of the 1972 pilot edition, being replaced by Edward Woodward - a panellist in the pilot - for the opening series in 1973. He was succeeded the following year by first season guest star Jon Pertwee, who chaired from 1974-78. See more »
I was very young when this was on - 7 or 8, I guess, but I did enjoy watching.
The one thing that used to crack me up was Jon Pertwee referring to Patrick Mower as "Blood'ound" every time he was on. To this day I still refer to Patrick Mower as "Blood'ound" because of this show. We'll be watching Emmerdale, Patrick Mower will come on screen, and I'll say "Look out, it's Blood'ound".
I guess you had to be there.
Bottom line - they don't make shows like this any more, and I am wholehearted agreement that this show needs to be issued on DVD or Blu- Ray for us old'uns to relive our halcyon days.
