Should Have Stayed A One Off
13 August 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

IT`LL BE ALRIGHT ON THE NIGHT was heavily hyped in the weeks leading up to its broadcast by ITV in 1977 . This was common in Britain at the time because we only had three channels in those days : BBC 1 , BBC 2 and ITV and no one ever watched BBC 2 so ITV and BBC 1 were at war in order to get ratings

The show itself is a collection of out takes from movies and TV shows presented by the painfully unfunny Denis Norden , the type of character who thinks he`s funny when in fact he`s not . Example ? " With a title like It`ll be alright on the night you may think this has something to do with a wedding ... " I can`t think how he described a cock -up . But anyway the clips themselves were outrageous since some of them contained nudity like a singer/dancer struggling in vain to stop her swimsuit from slipping down to reveal her breasts , and the clip from an American news report that has a man cheekily stripping off in the background and waving ( Behave yourself ) with his hand towards the camera . This risque show was the main topic of conversation at school on the Monday morning due to the nudity , but being an innocent soul my favourite clip was the broadcaster announcing a trailer for 70s female prison drama WITHIN THESE WALLS which cut to a bunch of puppets singing and dancing which had me laughing out loud.

Unfortunately ITV decided to kill the golden goose by making more editions of IT`LL BE ALRIGHT ON THE NIGHT every couple of years where the supply of genuinely funny clips soon became exausted . Worse than that by the mid 1990s both ITV and BBC schedules started producing a ridiculous amount of out take shows like TV NIGHTMARES , LAUGHTER FILE and AUNTIES BLOOMERS where a very small percentage of clips are either funny or original and has you wishing the first IT`LL BE ALRIGHT ON THE NIGHT had stayed as a one off
