Freeze Frame

SLEEPY WESTCOUNTRY-ONLY hour-long replacement for TISWAS with Blonde Getting First Break In Telly and Wayne Sleep-a-like IAN CALVERT. Standard in-studio affair notable for having scaffolding in shot. Kids (from scout group or local school) got to stand on the top and spit or throw things, while sporting grey T-shirts with Freeze Frame written around a square box. After screaming “Freeeeze Fraaame!” at the start and before ad breaks, they’d then just sit back and look gormless for the camera with streamers draped over per them. Rest of the show consisted of the usual WB cartoons, interviews with local ‘outdoor sport’ champions, a rather dull science segment, more local ‘talent’, and a minor band to end the show of the calibre of The Bloomsbury Set.
