Knightmare's theme tune (original version) was heard on the Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show on Absolute Radio on Friday 17th October, followed by a brief description of how Knightmare worked.
This was done to introduce Project Floor, a new game in which two callers alternately direct co-presenter Richie, clad in a "Wickes safety helmet", one square at a time across a grid consisting of different types of flooring so as to win DIY prizes while avoiding holes. This was then available in the Christian O'Connell Daily Choice Cuts podcast. Thank you to Canadanne of the Forum for reporting this.
Another breakfast show DJ with an appreciation of Knightmare is Capital FM's Dave Berry, who brought Knightmare to Richard Bacon's Beer and Pizza Club on ITV4 in 2010. Tommy Boyd, who introduced Knightmare Series 5 and 6 in the 1990s as the main presenter on CITV, has also talked about Knightmare on his radio shows. Iain Lee is a fan too and was interviewed about Knightmare for Channel's 4 countdown of the 100 greatest kids' TV programmes (Knightmare came 16th) in 2001.
The Knightmare theme tune, which was composed by Ed Welch (Catchphrase, Blockbusters), also cropped up just over a year ago on BBC One's I Love My Country.
