Countdown (Anniversary)

By 1997, Countdown had notched up its 1999th & 2000th editions, the latter hosted by William G Stewart. Producing the show at this time was Mark Nyman who was one of the youngest contestants in the show's early years. Out of all the assistants Richard had throughout the years, only Carol Vorderman remained, now picking the numbers, the letters and still being the best Vital Statisician!! These titles are based on a ticking metronome, whose last regular TV appearance must have been in Pipkins!! The 1999th edition clip, clearly shows Richard's enthusiasm and enjoyment for Carol & the show. Richard's death is a sad loss to the county of Yorkshire, Channel 4 & the TV industry as a whole. He will be sadly missed. Many thanks to Steve G for providing the clips.
