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

Bernie the Bolt was not the shooter
16 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

People always make the mistake of thinking that Bernie the Bolt was the blindfold shooter. This was not the case. Bernie the Bolt loaded the crossbow; the arrow fired by a crossbow is called a bolt hence he was called ".... the bolt".

But it was a mysterious individual in evening dress "the blindfolded cameraman" who actually responded to the "up a bit, down a bit" instructions. The crossbow was in fact attached to his camera and so when the participants gave him instructions he moved the camera controls to respond.

This role was undertaken by a real cameraman on the show by the name of Derek Chasen.
