This BBC1 Daytime daily quiz starred impressionist Jon Culshaw, comedian Rainer Hersch and comedy duo ‘Kit and the Widow’. It went out in April/May 1998 at 12.05.

The following comment was left on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:

Kate Hillman: “I loved this show, we had Jon Culshaw just before he hit the big time! Ronnie Butt worked on it with me and I think Bev Wildman (as was!) and Nick Harris too. We recorded some episodes on the Easter Sunday and the reason I can remember it so well, is because that was the day my other half proposed to me!! It was a happy show to make. Yes, studio A.”
