Speaking of past European TV contests, does anyone remember...

Jump to last reply

..the show "It's a Knockout" ? (I think that was the name but I can't be sure). The posting about the Eurovision song contest reminded me about this one. As a child in the 70's (which is why I cannot remember it too well) I recall seeing a show on European TV during our summer holidays to Switzerland and Germany. Several countries (maybe 6 or 8 ?) used to compete in various mad-cap type sports filling buckets of water or knocking people off beams into water or climbing greasy poles, etc. I think costumes were involved and thousands of people used to cheer the contestants on. Does ths sound familiar ? Is this show still around ? We kids, we always had fun watching it.
