Rivron was a one of kind chat show; the kind that could never be done before or again. The premise was simple: Get Rowland Rivron, whose name sounds a bit like river, to interview celebrities whilst floating in the River Thames at night. Each week, Rivron and his guests would float and try to tread water and not drown whilst wearing life jackets. Questions and answers would be frequently interrupted by the cast accidentally gulping water whilst they spoke and things got really dicey when a boat would pass and they had to deal with its wake. And rivers in the night tend to be cold as well so you could hear chattering of teeth. Eventually, the show was shut down because of health and safety issues and the last episode has the River Police shutting the whole thing down. Rivron also had a really snazzy show biz intro and music which was at odds with the low production values of the show.
