One of the problems was the three-tiered winning system. First tier winners were allowed to come up and make a speech, second tier winners could come on stage to receive their award but weren't allowed to make a speech, and third tier winners just had their awards delivered to their table. Trouble was no one explained it, probably because they couldn't, not without blushing.

The aggressive P.C. drunk who bawled "F_ _ k off!" at John Inman was Peter Wells. A week or so after this debacle, TRUTH featured him glowering petulantly on the front page, with the classic headline: "WE NAME GOFTA SLOB."

Bet Tony (Holden) has a grimmace when he sees this. I think this was the one that gave people epileptic fits as well from the strobe lights. Plus serving booze before and during the show had the expected result. Its a huge "What were they thinking"
