TV: F is for...

Friday Night… Saturday Morning

MERIDIAN-STRADDLING CHAT meanderer helmed by rotating line-up of guest hosts. Remembered mostly for a) weird jungle-type set with pot plants all over the place b) “saucy” titles showing couple refraining from carnal pleasures as soon as, yup, they note programme “starting” on “TV set” c) JOHN CLEESE and MICHAEL PALIN going on to defend Life Of Brian in face of MALCOLM “DON’T HAVE TO LOOK IN A SEWER TO KNOW WHAT’S DOWN THERE” MUGGERIDGE and the BISHOP OF WOOLWICH (“You’ll get your 30 pieces of silver!”); d) someone deciding to get HAROLD WILSON to present it, only to have the ex-PM go to pieces and ask HARRY “WHISTLING” SECOMBE what he’s doing after the show.
