Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

In a recent Twitter thread about Knightmare and how a revival could work, one tweet is particularly interesting. It's from Dom Wilkins, whose career is in TV scheduling. When I looked after Challenge we talked about bringing it back endlessly but was cost prohibitive for a small channel because of w...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

If things go according to - what's this word? - 'plan', I hope to be at the hotel between 4 and 5. PM. This relies slightly on my ability to catch trains, navigate streets, tie shoelaces etc.

I hope that won't delay things too much.

Wishing you all safe journeys.

Keith Richards

The Saturday Review section of today's Times has a photo of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards on the cover, with the caption 'Never too old'. It reminded me of the caption competition on Interactive Knightmare in 2004, where the prizewinning caption of a picture of Beveryafraid (a.k.a. Garstang, the or...

Re: Knightmare clip at BFI event, 28th July 2019

The video clip I linked to does have flaws, but the one shown at the event was from a Challenge TV repeat. Some of the other clips had logos that weren't blurred out, such as a (poor quality) clip of Art Attack from a Children's Channel repeat. If the BFI ever does an '80s kids' TV event, I hope Kni...

Knightmare clip at BFI event, 28th July 2019

Yesterday I went to an event at the BFI (British Film Institute) called 90s Kids' Shows . Knightmare did feature, but disappointingly. Before the panel discussion was an extended compilation of clips of '90s shows (mainly children's shows but The Crystal Maze and GamesMaster were included). The Knig...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Have fun folks. I'll hopefully be able to join you all next time... This may be a cliché but it won't be the same without you. It sounds like you'll be enchanted by powerful technomagic this summer. All the best with it, and here's to your future escapes from Windows pains. Who's up for our trienni...

Knightmare Series 4 promo with Fatilla

A forgotten promo for Knightmare Series 4 (albeit just the first few seconds) has turned up in an upload from 5th December 1990, immediately following an episode of Mike & Angelo. It has Fatilla talking to the watchers with the giant lizard behind him. Knightmare promo 1990 - Fatilla.jpg Search onli...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Thanks, Alan. I'm afraid I've been having a Fatilla moment. Would you like us to tick one most-preferred weekend, or to tick every weekend where 'Yes' or 'Yes, if need be' applies?

Please could you also clarify how it works for those of us entitled to two votes?

2001: A Space Odyssey

At one point in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the camera moves towards a black oblong standing in a room.

A moment later, the camera pans down from a full moon, which of course is how most episodes of Knightmare Series 1-5 started.

If you want to explore these, you can use the chronological series-by-series playlists I put together. There's...

With thanks to Giorgio Moroder for the music. Level One you've entered Lillith you are bound to meet Magic incantation Makes it safe to mo...

That's a potential 16 Blackpool botherers so far. Thanks to everyone who's posted in this thread. Before opening a poll to select a date, I suggest we briefly discuss the possible dates. Realistically, it has to be on a (long) weekend. The tried-and-tested schedule would have us all arrive on the Fr...
