First viewed : Early 1979
Give Us A Clue was simply Charades on the TV with Michael Aspel presiding over a contest between male and female teams headed by character actress Una Stubbs and annoyingly camp light entertainer Lionel Blair. The teams consisted of two other celebrities and initially a usually rather overawed member of the public though they were soon dropped in favour of having a fourth celebrity.
Confusingly, it had the same theme as Grange Hill for the first two series.
I never tuned in specially to watch it but it was a reasonably entertaining alternative to Nationwide on a Wednesday.
Michael Parkinson and Liza Goddard replaced Aspel and Stubbs in later series.
It ran for 13 years from 1979 to 1992. There was a brief revival on BBC One in 1997 with none of the original participants involved.
