Give Us A Clue

Show Summary

Give Us a Clue is a British game show, which was broadcast on ITV from 1979 to 1992. From 1979 to 1983, the show was originally hosted by Michael Aspel, and then by Michael Parkinson from 1984 to 1992. The show was based on charades, a fun game in which players were given two minutes to mime and without talking, demonstrate a name, phrase, book, play, film or TV program. The team scored three points for a correct answer in the first minute, and two points for a correct answer in the second minute. The opposing team could earn one point for guessing the right answer, if the mimed-to team failed to answer correctly. Each team was comprised of four members, with one being captained by Lionel Blair and the other by Una Stubbs. Liza Goddard captained the women's team in later versions of the program. A BBC One remake of the show, hosted by Tim Clark, also introduced a lateral puzzle to the format. This remake featured Christopher Blake and Julie Peasgood as team captains.
