Does anyone remember any of these?

There was a programme on Channel 4 called Wanted. It basically involved teams roaming around the country and trying not to get caught. For the live episode they'd hide in telephone boxes and hope the person tracking them wouldn't catch them. It was like an early version of their Hunted thing, only a lot less fake!



Lost. No, not that one! This was a Channel 4 programme that involved teams being dropped into the middle of an unknown country and they'd have to make their way back to the UK. The first team back won...something.



Crisis Command. I absolutely loved this! Members of the public would play government ministers and would have to react in real time to a crisis that was unfolding somewhere in the country. Experts then dissected whether the decisions they made had resulted in the fewest casualties.

Never heard of them Kranek.

The only similar prog I can think of is one that Anika Rice used to do. Running around the country raising money for a good cause. But all I can really remember is the cameraman filming her arse all the time. :srs?:

BCE = Bilko, which I do.


The Phil Silvers Show...very good.

Also GOMER PYLE USMC was a funny show set on a military base.64-69. Gomer was an important character on THE Andy Griffith Show in the early 60s.(was that shown on british TV?)

I had every episode of Bilko on DVD - but now I don't have a DVD player.

I don't recall the Andy Griffith Show. One or two of the actors in Bilko went on to Car 54, Where Are You? I think.

One of mine is London's Burning, loved that show. Gritty, with some good story lines. Right now we of course have Chicago Fire, London's Burning was the bee's knees back in the day though.

Image Some of the old cast. The dude from Casualty on the left there.


Despite in the first episodes one type of Fire Engine went out to a fire, and returned a different Fire Engine,

This was sorted out by the Production Team hiring an officer from London Fire Brigade as advisor, so many of the stories were then based on true life current incidents within the Brigade/"Fire" Magazine, and other Brigades.

We found the only way to find out Politics/changes, re structuring etc within our Brigade was to watch the show, one learned more from the TV Series than being on the "shop" floor.

The dude on the left was James Hazeldine who played FF Mike "Bayleaf" Wilson Blue Watch Mess Manager
He was a veteran actor but never starred in "Casualty "

Chicago Fire seems authentic with its story lines IMO is very good.some stories cross over with Chicago PD, Chicago Med, and Chicago Justice but one has to catch them in the right sequence or the storyline gets confusing.

Ah, thanks for the info. Not sure who I'm thinking about in Casualty, he looks very similar to someone, so I thought. Mind you I've never been an avid watcher of Casualty, just an episode here and there over the years.

Yeah Chicago Fire is good, quite surprising how they've ran season 5 and 6 back-to-back. Yes, from time to time the Americans love doing a bit of series cross over, and yeah at times you do have to make sure you watch everything in the correct sequence.

As I mentioned in the "London`s Burning" Post the series changed policies within the Fire Service and helped to modernise other UK Fire Brigades.

But the biggest impact a TV Series has had world Wide was the late 1970`s/early 80`s series " Emergency "

Image

It featured a newly organised Paramedic Firefighter unit in Los Angles, at the time there were only 12 Paramedic Units in the whole of the USA, by the end of the series over 50% of all America were within 10 minutes of a Paramedic Unit, thanks to the TV Drama
It also heavily featured how CPR could be carried out by members of the public
" Emergency " was screened in 41 Countries World Wide,
Where I was stationed a number of Doctors realised the scheme would save lives and helped by public funding were able to purchase specialist medical equipment, Defibrillators, drugs etc and were equipped with a pager unit, so in their own free time were called out to serious incidents to administer medical treatment during rescue operations.

It goes to show the power of a TV Drama Series, it has helped to save hundreds of thousands of lives world wide.

We now come to expect that Ambulances are equipped for Paramedic use, plus the use of Helicopters, many Fire Brigade Personnel are trained to be Paramedics and in rural areas, First Responder Units are stationed at outpost Fire Stations because of the distance to be travelled by a Paramedic Ambulance
