The line diagrams show it all!

6 10 2008

Hi all

In the last blog entry about Shepherd’s Bush Central line station reopening (see entry below dated 5th October), I missed out something very interesting that I forgot to mention and thought I would share with you. On one Central line train, I noticed a brand new line diagram which I guess has been put up in the train in preparation for the opening of the new stations and it even includes interchanges at Shepherd’s Bush with Overground (100m walk) and White City with Wood Lane (a 250 metre walk from White City). Here’s the proof of the pudding…

Assuming it all goes to plan, Wood Lane is due to open on 12th October (this coming Sunday). So more exciting new things to come! I also assume that a new Tube Map will be out by this time.


Going For Gold is coming back!

6 10 2008

Hi all

It has been announced that the game show Going For Gold is coming back on our TV screens! Yes, it’s true! The excellent game show that used to play on BBC is returning on channel Five on 13th October.

Henry Kelly who used to present the show will not be back to present it, but instead it will be presented by former ITN Newscaster, John Suchet. And what’s great is the theme tune and all the great rounds such as Beat The Buzzer, Four In A Row and Head To Head will all be back! It’s all good!

John Suchet was said to be very excited about the show as it is something different. And it will be very interesting to see how it will all go!


In the next few days to the build up of the new game show, I will be writing blog articles of the golden years of Going For Gold including history, the games, the theme tune and Henry Kelly himself, the man who represents Going For Gold. So do come back for all this and more!

What do you think of Going For Gold? Let me know of your personal Going For Gold experiences whether you were a viewer or a player!
