This complex BBC2 quiz show required superior lexicological dexterity as words were built up letter by letter while two teams of three celebrities accused each other of inadvertently completing words or having no words to complete. Sounds like fun, no?
Panellists included John Junkin, Bill Grundy, Henry Livings, Ray Alan, Leslie Sands, Billie Whitelaw, Sheila Hancock, Terence Alexander, Eleanor Summerfield, Frank Windsor, Rosemary Nicols, Sheila Tracy and John Betjeman.
