Hi all, do any of you remember an 80's programme that used to be on BBC2, similar to the crystal maze puzzle wise but was aired before CM.I remember an aspidistra plant that moved funnily and got upset by the "Humans", a lattice work grid that the contestants had to cross at the end whilst being pursued by the "vortex", many games played in complete darkness with only infra-red light to help them and a weird bloke that always talked backwards "doogyrev" being very good.Dogrun(s) also springs to mind, not sure if it was the currency or what the players had to collect?Any ideas or sites please.Another fave of mine at the time was the Great Egg Race with Prof Heinz Wolf, wicked show!Jim

Dead easy. The Adventure Game. I believe the currency was "Drogma" or similar. Brightly coloured bits of perspex. I remember I tried to recreate the maze game on my own BBC B! Link... link... ah, yes...http://www.joolsweb.co.uk/tag/Had to smile reading her FAQ actually, quite reminiscent of mine and probably just as futile!

funny thing is... I used to know Jools' (owner of the site) brother at school!! She apparently had a crush on me at the time (or so he said) ;)

Jools - female.Brother - Daz knew.Brother - told Daz she (Jools) had a crush on him (Daz).Think that clears that up Daz?! Was this a sort of "long range" crush then or was she at the same school?

Ahhhh...The Adventure Game...such fond memories of this show...! ^_^Like Star Fleet and Monkey!, it was one of those shows from my childhood that would have remained a distant memory and the subject of drunken reminiscing down the pub if it hadn't been for the Internet!Gronda gronda![Happosai]
