    ITV (ended 1987)
    British game show in which 3 couples would compete in 3 rounds for cash, gift prizes or the booby prize: "co-host" Dusty Bin!

    It ran in 1978, 1983 and then from 1985 to 1987.

    Produced by Yorkshire Television, it was called 3-2-1 because the show was three things in one–a game show, a quiz show, and a variety show. The original concept came from Ibanez Serrador who created a Spanish game show titled, Un, Dos, Tres.moreless

    ITV (ended 1997)
    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.moreless
