Storyline

An odd, cheap game show. Viewers were asked to call in and help aim the titular "golden shot", which was a crossbow mounted on the front of the TV camera. The cameraman was blindfolded, so they had to give him directions aiming the arrow at prizes. Whatever the arrow hit, they won. Written by Mike Konczewski

Slight corrections
24 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I must slightly correct my fellow poster. True, this was naff, but the first host was not Bob Monkhouse, but Jackie Rae. Also, only old fogies like me remember that the original catchphrase was "Heinz The Bolt", before Bernie came along, although I vaguely recall Heinz making a comeback for one show.

Part of the show's charm, apart from its naffness (many things went wrong when it was on live), was Anne Aston's struggles with mental arithmetic!

Oddly enough, this is one show which I would love to see return, but sadly I don't see it happening. 30 years on, I suspect the "powers that be" would be too safety conscious about cameras dressed up as crossbows!
