Looking for episode where someone falls off bridge into lava

As title: does anyone know which episode someone is on a bridge and they somehow fall off into a lava river to their death? Thanks!

Off the top of my head, I don't think that ever happened. You may be confusing memories of Gavin at the start of season 3, who stepped off a pathway and 'drowned' in quicksand, and Ross from team 6 in the same season, who fell off a narrow bridge over a bottomless pit.

The only time I can remember seeing a bridge over lava is in Series 1 episode 6 (first room of Richard's quest), but they didn't fall off it.

Hmm. The plot thickens. I had hoped it was Knightmare and not this...:

There is a chance that this scene from was a different series then. At the risk of going slightly off topic, I think it was a series with Sylvester Mccoy in front of a big video screen in a studio and he showed a boy falling to his death of a bridge into some lava. It was in the late 80s. Anyone have any clue?

Apologies if going off topic is against the rules... it was originally a Knightmare question at least. ;-)

UKGameshows.com says Sylvester McCoy also hosted Starstrider in the '80s, but I haven't seen it so don't know if that could be it.

Interestingly, the Wikipedia entry for Starstrider describes a pre-Knightmare blind man's bluff style 'light maze' round.

McCoy also hosted a kids tv show called What's Your Story? In which viewers phoned in plot suggestions. I can't remember if lava was involved though!

McCoy was also a semi-regular on Eureka, which was a sort of cross between Tomorrow's World and a Krankies-style sketch show. He often had to dress up in that, as I remember, so that's possible.
