Every Second Counts - 8 October 1987

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1987

This late 80s game show features couples attempting to build time credits by answering a series of questions. The prices include household appliances and a holiday to “exotic Tahiti”. Hosted by Paul Henry — in his TV debut — Every Second's’ gentle pace is decades removed from the accelerating insistency of Who Wants to be a Millionaire or Weakest Link. Henry fronts with more groaning Granddad jokes than the PC-baiting cheek he’d later become famous for, but early warning signs are there, disguised in a formidable 80s suit and white loafers.

... and finally Geoff and Elizabeth. Elizabeth is cashier who plays modern piano. Geoff is a pharmacist. They met over the phone.
– The announcer introducing the final couple
