Knightmare on the radio

Post by Myatt »

I was driving to work this morning and was surprised to hear the morning DJ's from XFM talking about underrated kids TV shows, one mentioned Knightmare and there was quite a long discussion about it. One said he had tried on the helmet and talked about either their friend or a listener who knew one of the dungeoneers from Torquay and said their full name. See link below.

Re: Knightmare on ITV4 in September

Thanks for telling us about this, Matt. It must have set you up nicely for the working day! It's still possible to listen to the show via the XFM web player for the next few days.

This has led to the news that Dave Berry will appear on the first episode of Richard Bacon's Beer + Pizza Club on ITV4 in September, where his nomination of Knightmare as "the most underrated TV show of all time" will lead to a clip of Simon's sidestep left, and to Dave donning the Helmet of Justice to be guided on a quest for beer by Jack Osbourne.

Addendum 11/10/2010: The episode in question was the first filmed, but not the first transmitted. I'll post again when its scheduling is confirmed.

Wednesday 3rd November, 10pm, ITV4. It should then be available on ITV Player.

Potentially very exciting.

Thank you to Keith for his thorough write-up of the episode on Knightmare.com.

I have it on great authority that Michael Cule got paid for his brief appearance-via-clip on Beer And Pizza Club. This would suggest that Hugo Myatt and David Learner did as well. Pleasing to think that they are pocketing gelt from Knightmare so many years on!
