Used to enjoy Ask The Family (monday evenings, I think) and Call My Bluff with Frank Muir.

Wonderful presenter, some of today's TV presenter should be forced to watch re-runs of his programmes...watch and learn from the master.
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.

Indeed, a consummate broadcaster - one of the last of his kind. Fondly remembered.
