Peter Glade always used to say"MacClean" if he annoyed him, & Mac Clean always used to say "Yes I cleaned them this morning!" Corny I know!! Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_37

Kool wrote:Eamonn Andrews was the first presenter, aided by Leslie Crowther and Peter Glaze. When Eamonn left, Michael Aspel took over as "straight man". Don MacLean was in it for a while, but not on an ostrich - that was Bernie Clifton, who was also in the show. Towards the end of the series, it was "Little and Large" who did it.

I loved the short play they did at the end of each programme, where they'd cleverly incorporate the hot pop songs of the time. Maybe that's one of the reasons it ended? I dread to think what kind of plays would come out of the songs in the charts now!
Ed 'Stewpot' Stewart also presented it for awhile :!:

It was Peter Glaze, not Peter Glade and he was crap.

I never got a Crackerjack pencil but I could probably buy one on Ebay.

Say what you like about Rolf, he is a blooming good painter.

I always found it fascinating when Rolf would do a painting at the end of his show, and start with a couple of wild brush strokes, and then some more. It didn't look like anything for ages and then suddenly with the introduction of a couple of final brush strokes 'hey presto' a picture!

Oh, and there was the obligatory "can you tell what it is yet?" :lol:
