    Default Iconic Tv moments

    Anyone recall any stand out iconic tv moments from the past that they seen as they were broadcast. Some things have obviously been repeated on those channel 4 top 100 shows but these are etched in my memory as I seen them first point

    Blue peter;
    Simon Groom commenting on Durham Cathedrals “wonderful pair of knockers”

    Saturday Superstore ;

    Matt Bianco being told they were a bunch of w**k*rs on a phone in

    SwapShop

    Keith chegwin live in some town somewhere and a kid in the background looking over to his right , must have seen himself in a monitor, and constantly giving the 2 fingered salute

    Junior Kickstart

    some poor contestant ending up in a ditch and the marshalls who were trying to assist him kept falling in too, Peter Purves apologising for laughing at the situation

    Tiswas

    Phil oakey getting his shirt ripped off him , he didn’t look happy

    TGI Friday
    Sean Ryder singing pretty vacant and Chris Evans repeatedly apologising after the performance.

    most of these can be seen of YouTube, obviously taken from recordings of it’ll be alright on the night, but the canned laughter does seem to spoil the clips

    Catchphrase

    The Snake Charmer round, where Mr Chips appears to be committing a lewd act, but when all the squares were removed it was perfectly innocent.

    Countdown has had a few good moments, but normally they seem to leave out rounds with rude words.

    Going Live! - Elliott Fletcher being profane to Five Star on April Fool's Day 1989 - I have this feeling that it was an April Fool's joke in the making.

    The Time The Place - The show goes off the air after a guest accuses the show of racism. John Stapleton asks Security to get rid of the guest and all hell brakes lose.

    National Lottery Draw - The Fathers 4 Justice people storm the studio minutes before the Eurovision Song Contest is due on air (remember Daz Sampson and Teenage Life?)

    Six O'clock News - Another "how did they get past security" moment - the lesbians protesting.

    That's Life! - Grant Baynham having a bucket of water tipped over him because he wouldn't stop smoking.

    Channel 4's 100 Greatest TV Moments from Hell was a great source for a lot of those sort of things happening.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    TFI Friday methinks.

    Another memory is the Stan Boardman "Fokkers" joke on Des O'Connor Tonight - rumour had it that Thames TV had banned him from appearing on any more of their programmes as a result.

    mum would let me stay up to watch it as I’m sure it was on late Sunday evenings.

    The talking dog (“sausages”) was the hot topic in the playground on Monday morning after it was first aired

    I am getting into the spirit of things now...

    Rod Hull's Emu (well, Hull himself to be honest) attacking Michael Parkinson on his chat show (the Emu also attacked others, but the Parkinson incident was what he was most famous for).

    Oliver Reed getting drunk on what appeared to be a jug of orange juice on Michael Aspel's chat show.

    Julian Clary "Norman Lamont / Red Ballot Box" on the 1993 Comedy Awards.

    David Icke on Wogan "they're laughing at you..."

    George Best also on Wogan.
