Growing up in the 80's, Saturday night used to consist of, sitting down with your family and watching one of your favourites shows, usually either on the BBC or ITV. It wasn't until the late 80's that you may of been one of the lucky ones and your parents decided to get Sky, so you would have a number of other channels to choose from. In our house we weren't lucky enough to get our Sky TV until the early 90's so Saturday night consisted of picking from two channels, however from what we remember it wasn't all that bad. So here is the best of the 80's and 90's Saturday night TV. Blind Date Hosted by Cilla Black and 'our Graham with a quick reminder.' Blind Date was the dating show of the 80's. Three hopefuls hoping to meet the love of their life on the TV show. Noel's House Party Set in the fictional village of Crinkley Bottom where you could 'Grab a Grand' and where the world was introduced to Mr Blobby. Bullseye Testing their dart skills and general knowledge, contestants battle it out to get to Bully's prize board. Challenge Anneka Host Anneka Rice and her luminios shell suit would be challenged to do random acts of kindness. The Generation Game 'Nice to see you, to see you nice' Bruce Forsyth was the host of the long running Saturday night game show, where four teams of two people from the same family but different generations competed against each other to win prizes. Big Break Break Break was the snooker themed game show, presented by Jim Davidson and John Virgo. Contestants would team up with professional snooker players and answer the general knowledge questions. The snooker player would then have to put as many red balls as they could to win money for the contestant. You Bet! Originally presented by Bruce Forsyth until Matthew Kelly took over in 1991, You Bet! saw a panel of celebrities bet on members of the public to complete their challenges, if the challenges were not completed then the celebrities would have to take their place. Gladiators For the female viewers Ace was the favourite and for the males you had Jet in the hit nineties Saturday night TV program Gladiators. We were all glued to our screens watching contestants battle it out with the big muscled stars of the show, and see who would be the first to run up the travelator to win the competition. Stars in their Eyes Long before the X Factor, if you thought that you could sing this was the show to go on. Not only could you sing your heart by impersonating your favourite pop star, out you would also be made up to look like the singer. Beadle's About Hosted by the late Jeremy Beadle, this Saturday night TV show was all about practical jokes and hidden cameras. The prank where the lady was convinced into believing that aliens had landed in her garden was pure TV Gold. The Russ Abbot Show The Saturday night comedy sketch show to watch was the Russ Abbot Show. Featuring comedy performances from other stars, such as Les Dennis and Freddie Starr to name a few, this programme was definitely one to make you laugh. The Little and Large Show The comedy double act Little and Large (Sid Little & Eddie Large) made us laugh with their sketches, musical numbers and special guests. The double act became one of the countries biggest variety acts after winning the variety show Opportunity Knocks in 1971. From this they stole our hearts with their Prime time Little and Large Show. The Cannon and Ball Show The Cannon and Ball show was the successful ITV comedy variety show, featuring another brilliant double act of the 80's Bobby Ball and Tommy Cannon. The Dame Edna Experience The Dame Edna Experience was Saturday night talk shows at their best. With Dame Edna and her bridesmaid Madge this show was hilarious and a much loved favourite. Edna and Madge went onto do Dame Edna's Neighbourhood watch in 1992 with the well known line 'Say your Prayers cause we're going up the stars'... They certainly don't make them how they used to.
