Come On Down! The Game Show Story

11th August 2014

Phillip is joining a long line-up of game show legends in a brand new four-part series revealing the history of the TV game show.

‘Come On Down! The Game Show Story’ tells the definitive history of the TV game show. Featuring classic archive footage and celebrity interviews, the programme will tell the story behind some of our best-loved game and quiz shows.

Self-confessed game show fanatic, Bradley Walsh shares his favourite game show moments and goes on a journey to discover just how this television genre has kept Britain hooked for more than sixty years. Bradley immerses himself in game show nostalgia - from meeting TV legend Sir Bruce Forsyth, playing The Golden Shot with Anne Aston and Bernie the Bolt, and being quizzed under the Mastermind spotlight by host John Humphrys, to sending Anneka Rice back up in that Treasure Hunt helicopter (in that famous jumpsuit!).

As well as an appearance from Phillip, the series features interviews with game show stars such as, Sir Terry Wogan, Carol Vorderman, Richard Osman, Stephen Mulhern, Vernon Kay, Les Dennis, Jim Bowen, Ben Shephard and Bamber Gascoigne.
