Can I have a P please Bob?

I can't believe the number of times I sniggered at "Can I have a P please Bob" during my childhood watching Blockbusters on TV with my family at teatime.  So it is with sadness I read about the death of Bob Holness yesterday at the age of 83.  Read the full story here from BBC News.

Blockbusters ran on ITV from 1983 - 1993 and as I watched this as a teen I always wanted to be as clever as the contestants on the show.  

Even now, nearly twenty years after the series ended I use interactive PowerPoint Blockbusters games in my teaching for revision.

Does anyone still remember the Gold Run?
