remember getting home from school or work and watching Blockbusters on
ITV at tea-time with Bob Holness? This clip brings back such fond memories for me.
The original Blockbusters ran from 29 August 1983 to 4 June 1993. The clip above features the intro theme tune from the 80s
This charades-based panel show ran from 1979 until 1992 on ITV. The team leaders were Lionel Blair (boys) and Una Stubbs (girls), although Liza Goddard replaced Una Stubbs in later series'. Between 1979 and 1983 the show was hosted by Michael Aspel, who was replaced by Michael Parkinson in 1984.

Bob's Full House was an 80s TV game show featuring the late, great comedian Bob Monkhouse as the host. The game was kind of based on bingo if I remember correctly, and the show would begin with a lengthy and topical stand-up comedy routine from Bob Monkhouse in his legendary slick style.
The Adventure Game, 24 May 1980 hosted by Newsreader Moira Stuart with Elizabeth Estensen, Fred Harris and Mark Dugdale .
The theme for each show was
that the two celebrity contestants and a member of the public had
travelled by space ship to the planet Arg.
I was just almost a teenager when this show started and I probably watched every episode!
