A British gameshow classic
28 June 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Treasure Hunt was a classic gameshow series which ran from 1983-1989. Originally it featured bubbly blonde Anneka "Annie" Rice as the skyrunner. Annie would be flown around all over the British Isles in her helicopter (while wearing now-very naff looking jumpsuits) searching for little pink clues which would help point to where the treasure was hidden.

Kenneth Kendall was the show's host, who would present each episode from Channel 4's London based studio. Working with him in the beginning was Annette Lynton, the Adjudicator. After the 1984 season Annette was replaced with the much more lively and fun Wincey Willis, who filled the Ajudicator position for the rest of the series. The basic plot of the show was this: 2 constestants would remain in the studio with Kenneth and solve the cryptic clues. They had to guide the skyrunner around but could only talk to her, not see her or where she was.

In 1989 Anneka left Treasure Hunt (I believe the reason for this was because she became pregnant) and was replaced by tennis player/Wimbledon commentator Annabel Croft. However without Annie the show failed miserably and was cancelled after Annabel's first and only season as the sky runner.

Treasure Hunt was a great show that I have only fond memories off, even during the Annabel Croft season (I thought Annabel did fine, people were really unfair to her and she had some really hard shoes to fill too). The best episodes were the ones that were shot abroad like the one in Florida. There was always wonderful banter exchanged between Kenneth and the skyrunner (the banter was better when Annie was on, no doubt about that) and it was just great fun. I was only a child when Treasure Hunt was on, but I remember being insanely jealous of Anneka Rice and wanting to be her. :p
