Knightmare on Teletext - Recoveries!

Hello to the three of four people still here who know who I am. As you may be aware there were a few Knightmare games on some old medium called Teletext, which was all the rage in the 1980s and 1990s, sort of like retro one-way internet if you like. Anyway all your old TV recordings harbour a secret...

Re: "The road to Hell and back" - Halloween 2010

I should have said in my previous post that I may only be able to do the Saturday. That's what you get for writing on forums after bedtime. Therefore Alton Towers and Thorpe Park isn't going to happen because as much as I would love to simply drop everything and go tootling around the country with y...

Re: "The road to Hell and back" - Halloween 2010

I've been seriously thinking about this since I first saw the thread but I thought I'd wait and see not on the basis of who's going but how much interest there would be. I seem to have a want to jump on every social bandwagon going at the moment. Which worries me slightly but it probably means I hav...

Re: Edinburgh meetup?

I could be interested in partaking (he says, wandering in an entire week after the last post was made, which is nothing new really). Due to the distance involved (for me anyway, best part of a six hour tootle up the motorway, a journey of nearly 250 miles (which includes diversions, getting lost and...

Re:What happened to CITV?

I rember coming home from school and flicking between CBBC and CITV. I looked through both channels recently at around the 'Kids coming home from school' hour and found no mention of CITV. Just did some research and it seems no more kids shows are shown of channel 3 around this time. Why is this? I...

Re:Billy's Picky Website Corrections...and other people's, too!

Despite the fact I haven't written anything on here in the last 15 months (and most people won't have a clue who I am despite having been registered since November 2002 and only making 57 posts in that time), I feel inclined to post something. Consider this page: http://www.knightmare.com/series/cit...

Re:Knightmare on ITV

Not worth a new thread so I'll just dump this post in here as it seems a good enough place. Debbie King, one of the presenters of the popular QuizMania strand on ITV Play, announced on-air tonight (in response to an email) that she used to love Knightmare and even managed to secure an audition at so...

When Did Knightmare "Jump The Shark" For You?

This'll be interesting. When, if ever, in your opinion did Knightmare jump the shark? For those of you not in on this piece of terminology... Jumping the shark is a metaphor used by US television critics and fans since the 1990s to denote the moment when a television series is (in retrospect) deemed...

Re:Is this allowed?

Granada have already made a killing by selling broadcast rights to Challenge. SO… they would be shooting themselves in the foot if they released the DVD. After all, who’s going to watch the Challenge reruns, if they already own the DVD? Be that as it may, it hasn't stopped other TV shows being rele...

Re:Has anybody seen Raven?

It's marketed as an original show but surely we're nearly at the stage now nearly 70 years after the first TV broadcasts in this country where everything that can be done on TV has been done and everything else to come has been done before. Space Cadets? Notice use of "nearly" in my post. Anyway so...

Re:Has anybody seen Raven?

I've had the pleasure of watching Raven and yes I've also noticed its built along the same premise as Knightmare was. It seems to be You Bet meets Knightmare meets Fort Boyard in some regards. The Knightmare influence is pretty clear (guy with silly beard is in charge watching over physically fit br...

Re:eBay image hotlinkers

Assuming Keith's script is something that you drop in the root of the web server, then it would be possible to make another file which you drop in another folder and anything in there one can hot-link from (for example if you want to remote host something from your own site for display on a forum). ...

Re:Backup forum...

Well if you could see how much I actually paid for the hosting for Knightmare Post, you'd be surprised that it's actually available at all. :)

Anyway, all I can is try again later.
