HTV Wales, 1998 (revival)


Children's game show in which teams answered general knowledge questions in order to bank time to use in a physical challenge at the end of the show. For example, the time banked is used for two of the children to throw hoops over a pole, and whichever team has the most hoops wins.

The format was revived by HTV Wales in 1998 under the name Playing For Time. It was broadcast in the old 5:10pm slot between CITV and ITN's early evening news. It only lasted one series and the ITC said "the programmes lacked pace and the studio atmosphere would have benefited from the presence of a lively young audience".
