Re: Bruce Forsyth as died.

Very sad another great entertainer has gone. Probably the greatest egotist showbiz has ever seen, but could show a common touch as well.

Had a quite talent for attracting fabulous women, not the least of which was Ann Sidney, arguably the most beautiful of European/US based Miss Worlds

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

When watching the TV literally just a few days ago, Challenge was showing repeats of Play Your Cards Right and Bruce's Price Is Right. A shame.

Hopefully they'll continue to do so, but I guess that is the decision of his family.

They'll keep broadcasting them for as long they have the rights to do so.
His family doesn't even come into it...

Yes I am sure you are right legally, but the channel should show some compassion, do the right thing morally, and ask his family do they want them to continue to do so.

Re: Bruce Forsyth as died.

Challenge have done the same with having marathons of shows when a gameshow host passed away, they did the same when Bob Holness passed away, they showed various episodes of Blockbusters back-to-back, not as an in-compassionate act, but as a celebration of their life and how best we remember them, so it's a tribute to them for us as a nation to remember them by...

Re: Bruce Forsyth as died.

Bruce Forsyth was a great entertainer but I think his heyday was in the 70's with The Generation game. His connection with the contestants and the audience was second to none. I felt his return to TGG in the early 90's never quite captured the fun and spontaneity of the original.

 

I found all his shows enjoyable and watchable, though and he never used foul language and always appeared gentlemanly. I also felt the When Amanda Met Bruce BBC show was a good tribute.

 

There is very good tribute to him by Jimmy Tarbuck who was a close friend.
