Press Your Luck
HTV West, 6 June 1991 to 20 September 1992 (two series)
Awful version of the classic US format, made on a shoestring budget and offering a top prize of just £200, which rather defeated the object of the game as it meant there was no jeopardy and thus no excitement. HTV may have licensed this format in the hope it would get picked up by the ITV network (following the company's success with Keynotes) but it wasn't even good enough to retain its primetime slot in the region, quickly being relegated to Saturday afternoons. It appears to have returned in 1992 for a second run in an even less desirable Sunday lunchtime slot.
