From The Running Man and Trainspotting, through to Rainbow: the fictional game shows that make you run for the comforts of Bullseye.

Everyone loves a good game show. Where else can you watch Steve from Redditch win a canteen of cutlery just for knowing the capital of Tobago?

Game shows are a light hearted staple of our TV schedules. We can rely on them to be entertaining without demanding too much in return (apart from Only Connect). They are the TV equivalent of a warm bath or a nice pair of slippers. And what's more, the whole family can enjoy them. 92 year old grandma visiting? Best leave Game Of Thrones and opt for some Bullseye instead. Kids up late? Stick on some Family Fortunes »
