Looks Familiar



Denis Norden


Thames for ITV, 25 August 1970 (pilot)

18 October 1972 to 1983 (series)

Thames for Channel 4, 2 August 1984 to 1987


A straight TV transfer of the radio format Sounds Familiar. Described as a game to test your NQ (that's 'Nostalgia Quotient'), Denis Norden was joined by three personalities for a popular teatime test of showbusiness knowledge concentrating on the 1930s and 40s.

Hardly a game show, Norden would skilfully steer the conversation for his guests using some very gentle questions that were often illustrated by film clips, but there were no points awarded nor any winner.

The show was picked up by Channel 4 in a peak-time slot from 1984 to 1987 whilst ITV took the opportunity to dump repeats of it in a graveyard, pre-closedown slot.
