In Other Words...
Back in the late 1980s there was a TV show in the UK called Noel's Saturday Roadshow - the predecessor to House Party. The game 'In Other Words' featured a gunge tank (or 'sludge tank' as it was often called at this time). Each week, a viewer would sit in the tank, helped by a celebrity (Letitia Dean is seen here in the still) and play a word game to win prizes - or be covered in 'gunk (an early use of the Nastrosol food thickener used widely today) This clip features a lady called Anne running the gauntlet in series 2. Will she win the prize or will we see her "lovely frock ruined?" Watch the video and see!
