CITV recently celebrated it’s 30th birthday with a whole weekend of vintage 1980’s and 1990’s children’s television programming. A highlight of this nostalgia-fest was an episode of the classic children’s adventure gameshow Knightmare. Knightmare ran fror eight series from 1987 to 1994.
Interestingly, a team from Portsmouth appeared in the first series of the show, and did rather well too. Danny the Dungeoneer made it all the way to level 3 and only perished after taking a wrong turning. By taking the left-hand doorway, rather than the right, Danny blundered into a chamber containing a large bomb. The team’s strong performance in their earlier challenges suggested that they might have been crowned the first ever Knightmare champions. But sadly that was not to be…
All this got me thinking. Are there any other memorable appearances by Portmuthians on tv gameshows?
