SM:TV Live

SM:TV Live logoSM:TV Live was the ITV's answer to Live and Kicking. First broadcast in 1998, SMTV was tipped to be just another Saturday Morning Program. Ant, Dec and Cat were the original presenters trying their hardest to pull viewers across from BBC1. At first, nobody watched it. But ITV didn't give up that easily and in 1999, SMTV got the nod for a second series. The show was revamped with a new set and sketches. It also used the stars who would later be on CD:UK unlike before. Then 6 months into recomission of the 2nd season, ratings reached a record high for any show. And these figures kept up until Ant and Dec left in 2001. SMTV put Live and Kicking out of business!Anyway, Ant and Dec left and viewers worried about the future of the show. Someone from Hollyoaks I think he was James Redmond joined ...

Sooty & Co

Sooty & Co logoWelcome to the Sooty & Co guide at TV Tome. I can say with great admiration that Sooty & Co was one of the greatest kids shows ever! It had everything that the original series had, and much more! The camper-van was a great addition to the series, and the show ran for an enjoyable 6 years. It was a shame to see dear Matthew Corbett retire as, for me, he was the 'grown-up' of kids TV, and was the star of the show! I needed to make sure his hard work was recognised. Cast your mind back to the last ever The Sooty Show and fought it was sad to see a series that has lasted so long was about to end. And then missing it. We were all sad but we have the second Sooty Series called 'Sooty & Co' Theme Song: Mathew singing. Hey ho its Sooty & co Everybody say Hello!!!(children: Hello!!!) There's Sooty ...

Special Branch

Special Branch logoSpecial Branch was a ground-breaking crime drama series from Thames Television, focusing on the tough cops from Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist unit. Shot in the studio on videotape and broadcast in monochrome, the programme initially starred Wensley Pithey as Detective Supt. Eden and Derren Nesbitt as Det. Chief Insp. Jordan. Eden was soon replaced by Det. Chief Supt. Inman (Fulton Mackay) and the show had its first makeover in 1970, with a switch to colour and new theme music by Robert Earley. The series, now led by the glamorous Nesbitt, prospered in its midweek post-watershed slot and was one of the ITV network's top-rated shows.

Spitting Image

Spitting Image logoAt 10pm on a Sunday night in 1984, Peter Fluck and Roger Law’s caricatures of the famous were unveiled to British audiences. Frequently crass and tasteless, but just as often hilarious, the caricatures of Spitting Image were to offend, outrage and amuse for another 12 years, before being laid to rest in 1996, making it the most successful adult orientated puppet television programme ever. Its format, a satirical comedy sketch show with latex puppets rather than live actors, was inventive and at times surreal. Some of Spitting Image’s sketches were shot and edited only hours before the show went on the airwaves, thus ensuring a fresh up-to-date topicality. Spitting Image preyed on well known faces, from the Royals to MPs. The Queen was portrayed as a harried housewife, bese...
