HRB Nightshift

It started off as a 3 hour celebration of 30 years of Saturday morning TV on 2 October 2006.  Guests that afternoon on a special edition of The Sound of Sunday included Maggie Philbin, Trev and Simon and Mitch Johnson.  But over the next ten years, the show went on to interview numerous more people who had been involved in Saturday morning TV – right up to the 40th anniversary in 2016.

All the guests took part in the Saturday Morning TV Super Quiz, 5 or 6 questions about their era of Saturday morning TV.  Those who took part included Mark Rhodes, Keith Chegwin, Ortis Deley and even Basil Brush.  We even had the boss of Saturday morning TV for 30 years Chris Bellinger.

3 people though got 100% – Mike Read, Andi Peters and Trev Neal, and all were given a certificate and HRB mug as their prize.  Andi was sent his by post, Basil Brush presented Mike with his whilst they were in panto together, and presenter Neil Ogden presented Trev with his prize in front of an audience at the Leicester Square theatre in London.  

This Sunday, on The Sound of Sunday Extra Time, you can hear some of those who took part again and Mike and Trev receive their prizes.
