S4C Continuity Department for S4C, 2004 to 2007


Live interactive show broadcast within the Planed Plant continuity strand. Four callers made predictions on a series of games played during a pre-recorded outside broadcast from a local school. The format was simple - two qualifying heats and a final were used. The winner at the end of the show won the star prize (usually a holiday in the early series).

However, in 2007, to coincide with the gradual closedown of Planed Plant (see Trivia), a drastically cut-back version was introduced called Planed Bant (translated as Off Planet). The format was changed to a straightforward knockout contest, the big OB was scrapped, and the games and prizes were significantly smaller. OB presenter Alun Williams became a studio presenter, leaving comedy character Eddie Butler to present taped inserts on his own from schools around Wales.


The show's original title translates as Big Prizes Show!

The reason for the cutback was because S4C had closed its in-house children's continuity department and outsourced the tender to Boomerang, an independent production company. All but one of Planed Plant's announcers left and a new team was introduced.
