Not family friendly even for adults

Tiswas ended, ATV lost its ITV franchise to Central TV and OTT was a late Saturday night adult entertainment show featuring a lot of the gang from the anarchic children's TV show Tiswas. The result a lot of kids staying up late to watch this and in equal measures confused, appalled and titillated.

Chris Tarrant who was one of the driving force behind this show in a sense was ahead of the times. If he had waited five years and gone to Channel 4 he would had been a millionaire earlier. He clearly was on the look out for new talent, and sensed there was a wind of change in comedy and he managed to give a break to the new wave of alternative comedians who could use the late night slot to try out the edgier material and also swear a lot.

Mixed with this was just crude jokes and nudity both male and female which would find an appreciative audience from those who came in late night from the pubs to see men dancing with popping balloons and bare breasted ladies but would be flummoxed with Alexie Sayle's spiel.

It did not last, the press had a field day denouncing the show and there was only going to be limited mileage with the smuttiness.

Still there was a rumour if this programme had continued that the BBC were going to get on the act with 'Even Bluer Peter!'
