Michael Aspel presented this television version of the Victorian parlour game charades game with Lionel Blair and Una Stubbs (and later Liza Goddard) as team captains, joined by teams of celebrity guests.
In 1983, Michael Parkinson, no longer the king of chat, took over as host, presiding rather like a headmaster over unruly 4th formers.
Celebrities who appeared on the Thames Television show over the years included Kenneth Williams, Marti Caine, Angela Rippon, Dudley Moore, June Whitfield, Dick Emery, Kenny Everett, Lynsey de Paul, Angela Douglas, Amanda Barrie, Adrienne Posta, Bruce Forsyth, Mollie Sugden, Honor Blackman, Danny La Rue, Yootha Joyce, Judy Geeson, Barbara Windsor, Julie Walters, Melvyn Hayes, Bernie Winters, Bernard Cribbins, Victor Spinetti, Robin Askwith, Keith Chegwin and Nicholas Parsons.
The show had to change its theme tune in the early 1980s because it was the same as Grange Hill.
