Take Your Pick

THIS IS more like it; a TAKE-monikered effort with a bit of class, namely MICHAEL MILES proffering the titular conundrum between “money” and “box”, supported by ubiquitous unseen announcer bloke BOB DANVERS-WALKER and ever-present organ-pumping HAROLD SMART. First real appointment-telly quiz, debuting in ITV’s first week on air, and first proper “event” gameshow where shrieking audience were as much part of shenanigans as cadaverous contestants. “Yes/No” game, gong-banging, head-turning riches (tickets to local palace of glittering delights) or amusing crappery (used tea leaves) all present and unchanged for aeons.
