Comedians may be huge in the world of travel but they are also huge at being casted as the hosts of gameshows. So welcome to a feature that is going to look at these shows in depth.
Whether they have been going for years, a week or got cancelled we have got them all. Welcome to the world of game shows. This week we look at a gameshow that only lasted one season in the nineties – First Letter First
Channel – BBC 1
First Aired – 5th January 1993
Hosted by Comedians – Don Maclean
Series – 1
Summary Of Show – A game where you don’t have a buzzer but a keyboard where you typed the first letter of the answer to try and win a point.
About the Show – The show only lasted for 32 episodes and 1 season and was hosted by comedian Don Maclean on BBC One in the daytime.
Every episode there was three contestants that would be narrowed down to one to play in the final round. In the first round you have to guess the right answer to the questions by tapping in the first letter – the aim is to win four letters and then you have to make a word out of the letters. At the end of the round the person with the lowest score is eliminated.
The second game was designed like a crossword puzzle where you have to guess what the names are in the grid. In the final round the last remaining contestant has to go against a word pyramid. Whoever the fastest solvers were would come back in the final week of the show to go head to head.
