It's a Celebrity Knockout - 1977

It pays to dig deep every now and then on the search engines – I just found some clips from this show, which I never thought I’d ever get a chance to see. It’s listed on Robin’s online filmographies, and I assumed it was some sort of long-forgotten game show.

Anyway, this blog that is dedicated to the girls that danced on British tv dance shows, put the clips up because some of those girls were also contestants. I did some further research and on this site you can read all the details about the show, including the names of all the contestants and who won.

It’s kind of a silly event, but looks like they had fun. You can’t see much of Robin, but if you look hard enough you’ll glimpse him here and there. He’s wearing a dark suit and is on the “Lord's Taverners” team.

I also read on the site that “As this programme was played purely for the purpose of raising money for charity, all of the famous celebrities involved gave their time for free.”

There were also shows from 1978 and 1979, so hopefully they’ll also turn up in the near future!

04/12/13 UPDATE! The complete shows from 1977 and 1978 have surfaced on YouTube! Watch this one in its entirety here:
