About this deal

Meanwhile, immediately after saying he’d smack Una’s “bloody” bottom, Warren Mitchell was given his card by Aspel.

By using this service you thereby indemnify this Company, its employees, agents and affiliates against any loss or damage, in whatever manner, howsoever caused. On one infamous edition of the programme, the male non-celebrity was handed the title he had to mime on a card by host Michael Aspel, but, rather than read the title, he read the wrong side of the card, on which his name was printed.

As much as Parky's avuncular charms brings a certain cosiness to the proceedings, there are now far too many rounds that are won only because he's handing them the answers. For a show with a lot of physical movement, the frame rate isn’t too jarring, making it a pleasant watch. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This version of the format feels like they tried to find a way to include the audience, but it doesn’t quite fully fit. This might explain my earlier comment about Parky intervening with pointers during play more than Michael Aspel did.

When it came to the performance part, Jill seemed to really struggle this time round in both episodes. 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. Terry Scott, Dick Emery, Maureen Lipman, Beryl Reid, Rodney Bewes, Faith Brown, Paul Eddington, John Inman, Dudley Moore, Victoria Wood, all three Goodies and two Doctors Who! And although it’s hard to imagine anybody sitting through an entire disc in one go (it does get a wee bit repetitive after a while), playing along with the game can be fun, despite the fact that some of the titles are of long-forgotten songs or TV shows.

We will publish your review of Give Us a Clue on DVD within a few days as long as it meets our guidelines. Many of the newer players seem far less au fait with some of the shorthands than one would expect, often mixing them up to the point of confusion. dvd box of the ITV classic Give Us A Clue, all series from launch in 1979 to 1984 (I think these are all the original series with Michael Aspel, before the later revival with Parkinson) All played once, all in very good condition Great Christmas present! They dropped the member of the public after an incident from the second show in the second series - the gentleman in Lionel's team read the wrong side of the card given to him, and thus mimed his own name!He feels stiflingly overbearing a lot of the time and more patronising every time his voice chimes into the play in progress like the voice of God. In the case of his wife, who turned to him frequently during her spots, he was very specific about a mime to give for a certain "sounds like" word. While I was aware of the series back when it used to be programmed in the evening, my strongest associations are of watching it in the afternoon. DVD VersionDVD's are released in many editions and variations, such as standard edition, re-issue, demonstration demo, not for sale, promotional promo, special edition, limited edition, and many other editions and versions. Even though the entire team and the opposing team disagree with Parky's petty point, he relents in the most condescending way, as though he's humouring Lionel to keep the peace.

It was hosted by Bernard Cribbins and had 2 teams of celebrities competing against each other and one round was charades, almost identical to Give Us a Clue in format. Along similar lines, a member of the public taking part was able to do Ask Aspel by pointing at the chairman, though nobody could remember the name of his other show at first. Maureen made a quip that the microphone didn't quite catch, but which had the men's team in stitches. It is a battle of the sexes, with the ladies team captained by the lovely Una Stubbs, and the mens team captained by Lionel Blair. Her rendition of What Age Expects becomes a poignant highlight, showcasing not only her vocal prowess but also her ability to convey the emotional depth of the character.For example, who would have thought Doctor Who’s Jon Pertwee (Third Doctor) and Peter Davison (Fifth Doctor) teamed up with Geoffrey from Rainbow? The shows on this set feature a galaxy of celebrities, comedians and actors, including: Kenneth Williams, Diana Dors, Richard O’Sullivan, Barbara Windsor, Robin Askwith, David Jason, Yootha Joyce, Mollie Sugden, Paula Wilcox, Spike Milligan, Russ Abbot, Warren Mitchell, Kenny Everett, June Whitfield, Terry Scott, Dick Emery, Maureen Lipman, Beryl Reid, Rodney Bewes, Faith Brown, Paul Eddington, John Inman, Dudley Moore, Victoria Wood, all three Goodies and two Doctors Who! It might just be me, but celebrities of this era mostly look like the average person you’d find on the street. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. For some bizarre reason, mainly that the script hardly changed in over 20 years, this programme was constantly referred to by chairman Humphrey Lyttelton in the radio panel game I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.

It goes to show that all players have their different strengths and while a lot of focus is put on the person doing the charade, it only works when the team get it. Give Us A Clue was a British televised game show, presented by Michael Aspel, running from 1979 to 1984, when the show changed presenters.
