    The People's Court

    The People's Court

    Follow
    The People's Court - a throwback to 1950s syndicated courtroom fare such as Traffic Court and The Stand Accused - was set in a small-claims court. The litigants had both agreed to bring their grievances to a California small-claims court, where retired Superior Court Judge Joseph A. Wapner heard the cases. The plaintiffs could file a claim for up to $1,500, while the defendants sometimes filed a countersuit if they felt they were due compensation. While most cases were run-of-the-mill complaints over poor service, broken contracts, ownership rights and malfunctioning merchandise, others had odd twists. For instance: * The overweight stripper who was not paid because the bachelor party-goers thought she was unattractive. During the arguments, she reveals she had gone at the request of her friend, the bride-to-be who found out about the party. * The mother who refused to pay a clown after he came to a birthday party dressed as a towering purple monster (he was supposed to play a Smurf); the clown ended up terrifying the party-goers. * The woman who requested a male friend make good on a verbal contract to pay half of the cost of her daughter's abortion, when she thought he was the father. He had backed out when he was sterile. * A woman who sued the owner of a pitbull after he jumped on the hood of his car. The pitbull's owner claimed she struck the dog and requested payment for the dog's injuries; and even suspected the resulting damage to the car was from a prior accident. And the list of odd cases went on. Each litigant (who, as the announcer reminded viewers each day, were not actors) stated his case before Joseph A. Wapner . After he was through asking questions, he retreated to his chambers before rendering his decision. More than once, he refused to support either side. Each litigant was then interviewed by the courtroom reporter (originally Doug Llewelyn from 1981-1993); sometimes, he gave the results of how courtroom spectators would have decided the case. Usually two cases were heard per show, though some longer cases took up the entire 30 minutes. If time permitted, Wapner fielded questions from the gallery; or legal expert Harvey Levin gave advice on handling that episode's legal scenario (i.e., confronting a car dealer about a car suspected to be a lemon). Each episode ended with Llewelyn admonishing viewers with some variation of the age old advice: "When you get mad, don't take the law into your own hands ... take 'em to court!" The original version of The People's Court ran for 12 years. When The People's Court returned to syndicated TV in 1997, the show expanded to 60 minutes, with Judge Ed Koch (the former New York City mayor) now presiding. Koch lasted until 1999, when Judge Jerry Scheindlin took over in 1999. Judge Marilyn Milian has presided since 2001. The format of the revised The People's Court was essentially similar, except the small claim's court limit was upped to $5,000. Sometimes, the interviewers also asked spectators on-camera their thoughts of a case before the judge's verdict was announced.

    BBC Two (ended 2005)
    Rough Science takes five scientists to a remote location where they are set challenges to be undertaken with only basic equipment and whatever they can find or extract from the local environment, although a few special items are sometimes provided. US publicity called it "Survivor meets Junkyard Wars", though Rough Science actually went into production before Survivor. From a British point of view, the show fits into a similar niche to that occupied by the 1980s ratings-winners The Great Egg Race and Now Get Out Of That!, as well as belonging to BBC2's portfolio of "popular science" shows alongside such hits as What The Romans Did For Us and Hollywood Science. The scientists who take on the challenges cover most of the major specializations; the regular team comprises a chemist, a physicist, a botanist, an engineer and a geologist. Rough Science demonstrates how different specialisms can come together to solve scientific problems - or, conversely, how a problem can be solved from more than one angle. What rivalry exists among the scientists is purely of the friendly kind, in fact it's obvious that they're all good friends and their camaraderie is one of the things that makes Rough Science such a success. The team's challenges have thus far always taken place somewhere very hot or very cold. The first series took the original team - including Anna Lewington and Vanessa Griffths, who do not appear in the later series - to a secret island location, and their first task was to work out where in the world they were. For the second series, American Ellen McCallie replaced Lewington as the team's resident botanist, and Kathy Sykes also made her debut, around the same time that she began presenting another series from the same stable, Ever Wondered About Food?. This time the setting was a Caribbean island and the tasks were more technology-based. The third series was a complete contrast. The same team were sent to New Zealand, where they were set tasks on a gold-mining theme. Amid spectacular glaciers, they were set the challenge of finding enough gold to make a piece of jewelery, with four of the six episodes dedicated almost entirely toward this goal. Having used numerous different approaches to find gold (including a search for "buried treasure"!), the team eventually achieved their goal, and the pendant they made was given away in a competition on the Rough Science website. For the fourth series, it was back into the heat. Based near a NASA testing ground on the edge of Death Valley, the team (now including geologist Iain Stewart) faced a series of challenges on the theme of space exploration, with high points including Ellen's "moonwalk" in a spacesuit built from scrap material, and a closing rocket-building challenge with a memorable finale. Note that when shown in the USA, the first two series were combined into one, with the order swapped round so that the second series episodes appeared first. The third and fourth series were similarly combined into a single, 12-episode series when they appeared in the USA the following year. Jonathan Hare's website provided details of filming dates for the various series.moreless
