Carnival Time


Bob Monkhouse and Pete Murray


Anglia (regional), 8 July to 30 September 1967 (13 episodes in 1 series)


A touring variety-cum-gameshow. By all accounts even more of a disaster than the later Simply the Best, and the paucity of said accounts probably tells its own story. Bob Monkhouse noted in his autobiography that he was worried the show would damage his career, but it didn't because nobody watched it. And amen to that! Elements included various slapstick races and games between local institutions (one example given by Monkhouse was the fire brigade using trying their high-pressure hoses to prevent the local swimming club from completing a course) and the "Miss Anglia" beauty contest.
