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

Up a bit... down a bit... left a bit...
27 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

We endured Bob Monkhouse's cheesiness in the early 70s for the moment when Bernie loaded the Bolt and the camera looked down the shaft of the arrow towards the target.

Bernie was blindfold and tension was in the air as the contestant had to tell him how to aim. Everyone had to say "up a bit... down a bit..." etc. That was the terminology. Anything else was pretentiousness.

Maybe it wasn't as incredibly naff as it sounds... or probably it was.

Sometimes the prizes could be quite big. Like a car (cheapest one on the market). It was working-class entertainment. For a while we always watched it. What else was there to do on a Sunday afternoon over the jelly and ice-cream? After a while we became more sophisticated and wouldn't be seen dead watching it. As it were.
