ODDLY-THEMED ESPIONAGE quiz show for two teams of kids. BILL “I OUTRANK YOU, MAINWAIRING!” PERTWEE and BILL “GNOBALLIB” HOMEWOOD (see THE ADVENTURE GAME) hosted various rounds nicked from other shows as well as general running about, sit-ups and film observation, all in the conceit of training the kids to become spies. Ripped off by BBC3 almost 20 years later, and even less people watched.

    According to a Facebook post by Bill Homewood he had trouble using an earpiece to feed up instructions from the gallary while being partially deaf.

    The titles were worthy of a spy thriller, including an odd zoom into a tinted picture of an Austin Allegro estate in a carpark!

    Eye Spy was a similar spy based kids quiz show a few years later.
