How might you change Knightmare if a new series were to be made?

Knightmare clips on ITV?

Post by TheBrollachan »

Just a thought, I wonder if we can get ITV to give Knightmare an online presence on their new website in the 'Best of' kids section...

Good idea! As challenage haven't renewed their contact, doesn't the rights go to the original broadcaster? I couldn't believe this website when I saw it. Absoulty fantastic! But surely they'll be putting up more programs (probably MPAA in the not too distant future)!

No, CITV would have to renew their own contract with Anglia if they wanted to broadcast the series again. It looks very unlikely that they'll ever do that, as it's against their policy to reshow old gameshows.

We are talking about ITV broadband which shows old programmes!

Okay, but you were asking about the original broadcaster. That's Children's ITV, not ITV Broadband.

Either way, they'd still need to negotiate a new contract with Granada Media/Anglia before broadcasting Knightmare, or they'd be breaking the law. To the best of my knowledge, there's no 'automatic-reversion-of-rights' to the original broadcaster. Which is a shame looked at some ways.

(Rights to the format for making shows can revert from a studio to the creators after about seven years, which is why it was possible for the KMVR remake to be attempted, but re-broadcast of material that's already been produced has to be renegotiated every time.)
