About this deal

Talkback Thames (as it then was) hawked around a revival in 2010 after a Dutch version ( Hints) was a hit, with Kirsten O'Brien and Rufus Hound in charge of Andi Osho, Katherine Ryan and Mel Giedroyc and James Redmond, Paul Tonkinson and Charlie Baker, but to no takers. We will publish your review of Give Us a Clue on DVD within a few days as long as it meets our guidelines. One or two really struggle to keep from speaking for two minutes, and even Lionel Blair can frequently be seen unconsciously (or not) mouthing the word as he performs it.

And yet when watching others she was incredibly switched on and knowledgeable and frequently put the pieces together far more quickly than her teammates. Back then, Jill's team was perhaps the strongest female team I'd seen because everyone was sharp as a tack and worked well together. Although Una was captain of the girls' team at that time, Liza was a guest on that previous episode (did this ever happen in reverse, I wonder? The only bonus on offer is that every episode comes with subtitles; Making this show more accessible than ever before. British TV panel games aren’t usually prime candidates for physical media, as they’re a little bit like a newspaper; Viewed once then discarded forever.There was some redemption in Part Two with first-time player William Boyde nailing his performance of the appropriately-titled Shame And Scandal In The Family and winning Lionel's favour. The episode also featured two great challenges for the captains with Lionel doing a terrific job with It's Hard To Tell The Depth Of A Well By The Length Of The Handle On Its Pump (Dave Lee Travis and Biggins were on their feet roaring out answers in the second half of the final minute) and Liza's team correctly guessing her performance of I've Got Tears In My Eyes From Lying On My Back In Bed While I Cry Over You in under a minute. Spanning a massive thirteen discs, the set covers most of the episodes that Michael Aspel hosted between 1979 and 1984. Una’s screen father also appeared, and after Una’s turn Warren Mitchell improvised an Alf Garnett line threatening to put her over his knee if she wiggled her bottom like that again. Liza's team featuring Maureen Lipman, Julia McKenzie and Millicent Martin suggested pure class, and they started as they meant to go on.

This might explain my earlier comment about Parky intervening with pointers during play more than Michael Aspel did.

This includes, without limitation, direct loss, loss of business or profits (whether or not the loss of such profits was foreseeable, arose in the normal course of things or you have advised this Company of the possibility of such potential loss), damage caused to your computer, computer software, systems and programs and the data thereon or any other direct or indirect, consequential and incidental damages. Gone is the mid-length hair and the natural Seventies look replaced by the shorter do she was sporting at this time (coming some time after The Gentle Touch's afro, I assume this 1987 appearance coincided with her final outing as Maggie Forbes in the final series of C.

It adds a bit of sturm und drang to the proceedings, but feels a bit overdramatic sometimes when it's something she can easily do in under a minute. Given the volume of episodes on offer, I think it is justified there aren’t any special features in this set. I was always amazed at the quality of the guests they had on the show, some of the biggest names in entertainment from the period seemed to make appearances. The team just seemed less experienced overall than Liza's team (which was 75% old hands) and the male guests missed a lot of the simple shorthands given to them by Lionel during his turn. It feels rather like a grown-up patronising children as they play their game, which is sapping the creativity and making it feel more lowbrow.Within seven or eight years she'd be a name on both sides of the Atlantic and would have given us The Simpsons. The show’s loose demeanour leaves things open for all kinds of double entendres and unexpected moments; Actor Tony Selby’s reaction to being asked to mime the Australian TV series Chopper Squad; The unique Kenneth Williams, channelling his Just a Minute energy for all kinds of witty quips; Every time Una Stubbs plays a round; David Jason’s very verbal and physical prescience; Michael Aspel’s quick thinking. The goods and services will be collected by us within 28 days of our receiving your cancellation notice and we will charge the cost of collecting the goods or services, and will deduct this from any sum owed by us to you. It’s a shame that not all episodes could be licensed, but with 90+ episodes totalling forty hours, there is more than enough to satisfy.
