Default Blankety Blank (UK Match Game)

As a big fan of the American version of Match Game, I've been watching some of the UK version out of curiosity, and I am enjoying it! While on the air the show had three hosts: Terry Wogan (1979-83), Les Dawson (1984-90), and Lily Savage (1997-02).

And what fun, this episode has Wendy Richard on :

Thanks for that Unit !! I have one question though.. is it just me or is that title theme the most annoying theme since "Take a Letter Mr. Jones" ?

That was fun to watch. I was dissapointed that the host pronounced Wendy's last name as "Richards" instead of "Richard."

Was anyone able to understand what he said when he introduced Wendy? He said "Wendy something-something-something Richards!"

Thanks Unanimous, I love the Match Game also. My favs are Brett and Charles.
I wish I could see the episode John Inman did.

Thanks Unanimous, that was fun!

We now know that Wendy didn't know how to spell "dachshund," and also that her normal speaking voice wasn't far removed at all from her Miss Brahms character voice.

Yeah, it would have been nice if they added more to the song.

Yes the theme music was irritating. Les Dawson was a great comic and was perfect for it. They get rerun sometimes on satellite TV, must look out for it.

I love Brett and Charles too, they were awesome. Match Game is one of my all-time favorites. I found two more episodes with Wendy :

from 1984:

lol. It'd be better if it had more than just the same words repeating over and over again.

Series 4 episode 2 features Wendy Richard and AbFab's June Whitfield:

Yes it was, but only in Britain. It was a big Glenn Miller Hit. Joe Loss was good at using other people's music.
