e.phemera: Family Fortunes

My abiding memory of Monkhouse era Family Fortunes is that I was terrified of the noise the board made when anyone got an answer wrong. But I was only four years old at the time. So it’s nice to see the show with fresh eyes. As always, Monkhouse is the consummate host.

According to UKGameShows, “Most series offered a family photograph of the contestants, posing with the host, as a consolation prize. The winning team received a colour photograph, but – possibly the most mean-spirited gesture imaginable – the losers received theirs in black and white!”
