Thread: late 80s/ 90s channel 4 kids show

  1. #1

    Default late 80s/ 90s channel 4 kids show

    I am trying to remember the name of a kids show that i think used to be on channel 4 on sundays around lunchtime. It was presented by someone like sylvester Mccoy or tony robinson and they had a team of kids come to a historic stately home or castle etc where they had actors playing roles from that period. the kids had to stop a time paradox from happening by solving clues. I think there was a bad charachter who was involved who was committing crimes in different times. not 100% on all this info. i'm sure it was called time something?

    please help, i've looked everywhere but no luck

    Default help please.

    Sorry, i have posted this before a few months ago, it is still bugging me. Thought maybe someone new might be able to help.
    It was a kids show early 90s i think. it was sort of a game show but tnot with questions etc. a teams of kids would go to a castle or stately home where actors played people form that period and the kids had to stop a time paradox happening. there was a bad charachter who would try and change events in time and the kids would have to stop him by asking actors questions and doing tasks etc. i'm sure it was presented my sylvester mccoy/ tony robinson or someone like that. i think it was on channel 4 early mornings/ lunchtime on sundays but am not sure.
    PLeas help!!!

    This sounds soooo familiar yet i cant recall the name of it for the life of me.

    The Adventure game and The Crystal Maze were both for adult competitors so i doubt it is one of those and i looked up Sylvester Mccoy and Tony Robison on IMDB and none of them have any credits for that kind of show around the late 80's / early 90's.

    This is gonna bug the heck outta me !

    LOL woff me too, I did the old Wilkipedia Search on both the above, also drew blanks, there was a Childrens version of the Crystal Maze, showing repeats now on Challenge T.V, but that just does not fit the bill for me and was not the Adventure Game more early eighties? It does ring bells, I seem to remember it being more historic/period set, than the Crystal Maze too.

    There's no way it could be CITV's Night Mare is there

    Though I am sure this search is for something far more factual

    Yes I did the Wikipedia thing too but when I came up with nothing, suggested the other two !! There's another one I can't remember the name of too -Fort something, took place in a Fort off the coast of France.

    If Gothic is right, some of the facts are wrong !! Firstly, Carmen Sandiego is female and oricson said a male baddy and this was an American series and again Oricson says a well known english presenter such as Tony or Sylvester.......

    Keep thinking chaps !!
