Fun and Games
Prof. Celia Hoyles with Johnny Ball (originally) then Dr. Rob Buckman thereafter
Yorkshire Television for ITV, 22 July 1987 to 1988
Strangely compelling audience participation show based around usually mathematical or spatial puzzles. No real game to speak of but plenty of "so that's how it's done" moments.
Actually saying this, the end of each show would usually involve some sort of two player mathematical challenge and more often than not it would be some sort of dressed up variation on the legendary "don't take the last matchstick" game. Remember, always go second and make sure they add up to four!
Devised and produced by Adam Hart-Davis.
