BBC Cymru for S4C, 20 September 2005 to 6 December 2007


Educational game show broadcast during the schools programmes slot on S4C.

A team of four pupils from a local school take part in two or three physical/research challenges that involve the local history and geography of their area. Their score determines part of the final round, which involves a catapualt (which they must put together themselves), a load of balloons filled with gunge (the number of balloons is determined by their score) and a huge target to which an unlucky member of the team is strapped onto whilst the others pelt him/her with said balloons.

And the outcome of the final round - NOTHING!

Well, that was the original ending, anyway. As of the 2007 series, this has been changed to a series-long competition where the number of balloons that hit the target account to a team score. The team with the highest score at the end of the series wins a star prize.


The title means Campervan.

The programme has been popular enough to repeat in S4C's flagship Planed Plant slot at 4pm and appropriately enough, the presenter is former Planed Plant announcer Elain Edwards.

The series has won the 2007 Bafta Cymru award for Best Children's Programme.
