    And I used to like Rainbow...

    Remember once watching it while fevered & delirious from the flu.

    Still, that's pretty funny. :D

    The Brits love their innuendo.

    It is probably dwarfed by what we see today on television in Europe

    I'd forgotten all about that show...

    as for the clip linked...I can't believe it was managed with a straight face. Bloody hilarious...

    I'm speechless. I just can't find anything good to say about that..... except that it was 'bloody hillarious'!

    I think I've gone blind. Not sure from what though.

    This was making the rounds on work emails in my office about a year ago. I didn't know what to make of it, if it was for real, or if it was something they shot for a laugh never supposed to air, either way, funny as hell :p :D

    I downloaded this clip from ebaumsworld.com awhile back. I remember watching it for the first time and saying, "you've got to be kidding me!" Like Simon from American Idol. I was stunned this was done. HAHA

    It's hard to imagine that it actually aired on TV to children. Especially back in the 70's to 80's. It is real clear what they are talking about.

    Oh wow, that is just amazing that it actually was aired. I have never seen anything that blatent on a kids show. There's just not much to say after that.

    I watched Rainbow all the time.

    Maybe it turned me gay, made me an amoral, godless bd/sm necro deviant... or maybe it just made my folks chuckle more than the usual kiddy tripe that was 80's children's programming :)

    You know, I think I remember watching that very show when I was quite small. Always used to look forward to the band coming on and singing a few tunes.

    It was never aired to children or the general public, it was made just for the crew.

    It was made as a skit for the BBC Christmas Video, which started as the original blooper reel, the VT engineers would collect all the funny out-takes and produce a tape once a year, it got to the point where anyone who made a mistake on a BBC program would say "Merry Christmas VT" after the cock-up.

    Then program's started making special little episodes for the VT tape, I remember an episode of Blakes 7 with a rampantly gay Darrow... class.

    I've got 3 or 4 of the tapes around somewhere, they stopped doing it in the 80's.

    The rainbow skit was never aired.

    It's a lot less scary the the teletubbies, IMO. I think about half of kids TV shows are full (though… not nearly that full…) of innuendo.

    And balls, and remember if you have any ask a friend if you can play with his.

    Aww the 70's. :p
