The Big Country Quest



Nick Owen


CST Productions for BBC1, 25 July to 29 August 1994 (6 episodes in 1 series)


Game show in which two celebrity-led teams have to tackle rural crafts. Somehow went out in primetime on BBC1 without waking anyone up.

Amongst the activies on hand were: sheep shearing, slate splitting, archery, horse ploughing, bodging, belltent pitching, slalom punting, duck herding, coracle racing, tree felling and wattle and daubing.


Amusingly, generous clips of it appeared in an Open University programme about how TV programme formats are constructed, holding up this Nick Owen vehicle on a pedestal higher than it really deserves. Maybe the clips were cheap, we dunno.
