Clive James on Television

A review of bizarre TV shows and commercials from all over the world, which began in 1982. Clive James seemed to have a particular fondness for Asian TV and would often show clips from the Japanese game show Endurance, in which various contestants were subjected to painful challenges. The series continued for around fifteen years: Clive James until 1988, followed by Keith Flloyd for one series in 1989 and Chris Tarrant, who hosted until 1997. The series metarmorphosed into Tarrant on TV, also made by LWT/Granada, from 1998 to 2005.
