Though many claim that until "It'll Be Alright on the Night" premiered, bloopers and mess-ups in TV, films and adverts were "hidden" from the general public, we had gotten close to seeing what went on behind the scenes from Benny Hill's occasional "things that go wrong" segments on his Thames specials. Unfortunately, one effect that "It'll Be Alright..." had was to render Mr. Hill's contrived "outtake" quickies passé almost immediately. From the debut of "It'll Be Alright..." in 1977, Benny only did such scripted "boo-boos" for two more years before finally dispensing with that segment altogether after 1979 - which coincided with the start of a new direction for the Hill show that, to this day, remains highly controversial. Oh, yes, and then there's the matter of "It'll Be Alright..." spawning such American equivalents as "TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes."
