Podcast 281: This is our Everest, Part Twenty-Seven – The Price is Right (1984)

by | Jan 14, 2021

This Is Our Everest returns today, albeit as a far more sensible weekly edition, with Edward and Ian getting their RDA of The Price Is Right. Your heroes – one in particular – are both connoisseurs of the American programme, so how are they going to respond to the first edition of the Leslie Crowther-fronted UK series from March 1984? Pretty much as you’d expect, to be honest. In this bumper, seaside special, episode there’s a gimlet eye run over the prizes on offer, endless talk of deep conspiracies and a rare mention of Carl Lewis.

The parsimony of the British race is given a kicking and, as always, there’s a history lesson with regard to ITV regional franchises. It’s what you are all here for, let’s face it. If you’d like to see Leslie Crowther run wild for yourselves, you can find the episode here.
