I think We All remember TISWAS (Today Is Saturday, Watch And Smile)



Most Famous Presenters
Chris Tarrant
Sally James
Lenny Henry
Bob Carolgees
John Gorman

I know I Could Check this All up online But lets See What Everyone Can Find Out (no Links to Web Sites) Many Hands make light Work

Tiswas Was taken of the Air in April 1982, What And Where Did the Presenters go From Tiswas

See if we Can get A time line to What they Are doing Now

Tiswas the Program
Ran from 1974 - 1982
8 Series of Pure Madness Broadcast As a Live Feed to the Nation (each Show was recorded But only for IBA investigation, Which later Almost All Were Distroyed) Many Famous People had Regular Spots on Tiswas, Jim Davidson, Jasper Carrott, Frank Carson, Sylvester McCoy, Norman Collier And many more
Tiswas Brought us Classics like the Dying Fly. the Bucket of Water Song, the Fantom Flan Flinger
In 1981-1982 Tiswas Aired it's last series with the New Presenters And Was Axed As New Central Managment Wanted to Bring A more up-Market image to the Channel, But Even to this Day you Can Still See the Style of Tiswas in Childrens Shows, Ministery of Mayhem, thingy And DomAnd Again the list Could Go on
Some (most) of  the Old Presenters Went on to Do An Adult Verson Of Tiswas Called O.T.T Which only lasted 12 Shows

1980-appears on TOTP as part of the'4 Bucketeers'
1982 Presenter on O.T.T.
1985-1995-co presenter on 'Surprise Surprise'with Cilla
During the 80's also fronted several Hellman's Mayonnaise adverts dressed as a schoolboy
Most recently Bob has been seen in episodes of Pheonix Nights,and Ant and Decs Saturday Night Takeaway.He also appeared on The Weakest Link 1980's Special,and appeared on Tiswas Reunited in 2007
Bizzarrely Bob now owns a candleshop in Cheshire called Carolgees Candles

Sally James

1980 Was one of the '4 Bucketeers'
1983 Co Hosted A Show Called Ultra Quiz with Micheal Aspel

Remember it like it was yesterday, Chris Tarrant and Lenny Henry always chucking custard pies at people. The only person on there I didn't like was Sally James, she always seemed a bit of a snob/

Now you Saying that, Chris Tarrent Wasn't to happy About having Sally James on the team to Start With But A Few Weeks into her Being on the Show There Was Quite A Good improvement in the Live Shows Proformance And Sally James Was A Positive Addition to the team

All I can find so far on Sally James is that she runs a school uniform business in Cobham.

Loved Bob Carolgees and Spit the Dog, they were great. Chris Tarrant, Lenny Henry and Bob Carolgees were the best. Just could never warm to Sally James. Here's Bob with Spit and his M & M, (mullet and moustache)
