When Saturday evening TV was worth watching
26 July 2004 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I used to watch 3-2-1 on Saturday evenings during the 1980's and it was usually the prime time show on ITV. It was much better that the rubbish that is now shown on Saturday evenings.

Three couples competed against each other and the first to go was at the first round, a quiz. The other two went on for the acts and a member of the act bought back an envelope with a rhyme, along with an object as a clue to what the prize could be. The contestants then had to pick one of these, hoping it would be Dusty Bin as all they would win if that was the last one at the end was a brand new dustbin. The prizes were usually cars or holidays. Every couple also taken home with them a ceramic Dusty Bin.

This show was hosted by the late Ted Rogers and one of his female assistants for a few years was actress Caroline Munro (The Spy Who Loved Me).

I use to enjoy this on a Saturday evening and was a shame it finished.
