Don't Try This at Home, Kids!



Chris Manley


HTV Wales (regional), 1997


Game show based around children doing things that they're not normally supposed to do, like jumping on beds and playing with food. Two teams of two took part on a set which looked like a poor rendition of a house.


There was a live house band, and the end credits were simply cards held up by a swaying audience.

Broadcast in the 5:10pm slot sandiwched between CITV and ITN's early evening news.

For some silly reason, the VT editor decided to lay on a film effect in post-production.

The Independent Television Commission's report on the show: "As the only regional children's programme offered by HTV this year, DTTAHK was unsatisfactory in terms of production and technical values. The series, which was repeated to reach the minimum licence requirement, was also light on regional content." Not surprisingly, HTV Wales axed it.
