This has the very simple premise of three panelists trying to guess the identity of a celeb by having Loyd Grossman wander around their house pointing out their well stocked bookshelf , their designer kitchen etc . Sounds exciting doesn`t it ? As exciting as watching paint dry .
The panel is usually composed of celebrities no one has heard of but who are no doubt legends in their own minds , but the worst thing is the celebrity guests themselves . David Frost says " Well for the audience at home here`s whose house that is " then the camera cuts to an author whose books no one ever buys , or a newspaper columnist no one has ever heard of , or a bistro owner who only seems to open his doors to the celebs on the panel . For some reason the panel usually guess the identity of the person which is strange since the audience don`t know who they are . Ironically one celeb the panel didn`t get was former BLUE PETER presenter Peter Duncan , one of the few guests I have actually heard of .
THROUGH THE KEYHOLE often turns up on the graveyard slot of the afternoon schedules but when it was first broadcast in the mid 80s it was shown at peaktime Friday nights . It`s amazing what rubbish TV executives think will go down well with the public
