Television (Excerpts) – 1987 Popular Factual

Start video player
The audience was locked in the room with no food but lashings of champagne as the long, long show (being broadcast live) descended into anarchy. It was my first year working as a television presenter and I remember thinking, "These are my workmates? They're all mad. How cool! This is going to be fun."
– Michele A'Court
... an uncouth audience whose boozed-up jeers and guffaws, shrieks and cat-calls would have been offensive at a male-only sports shindig.
– Barry Shaw, NZ Herald (16 July 1987, p21)
The show proceeded more or less on the basis that half of those who won Goftas weren’t present to pick them up, and the other half weren’t allowed to.
– AK Grant, NZ Listener (15 August 1987, p37)
