The remaining ATV Bullseyes (I think 10 out of 12?) have been seen on Challenge a couple of times a few years back.
"This is BBC World Service Television."

Yes, I saw those!

What happened to the other 2, are they "missing" or just not of broadcast quality?

I'd like to see "Countdown" again.

Another quiz I liked from the 80's was Catchword, presented by Paul Coia. Such a simple format that worked. Can't see why it couldn't be brought back either with Paul or a new host.

Many of the contestants used the word "antidisestablishmentarianism" as a point scorer!

Never broadcast:

Thanks for that, I didn't know!
 
I wonder if the 2 episodes still exist in the archives, or whether they were actually erased? If they exist then I'm surprised that they've not been shown late night, unless ATV/Central didn't want them shown because they were so bad!

On a slight different note, the Dave Spikey revival was quite poor (IMHO). It was almost played out as a parody of the original.

I remember seeing an episode on Challenge from Series 1 which was seemed like it was the very first episode - Jim explaining everything that was going on and the rules for each round in more detail than usual. Apparently it wasn't the first broadcast episode though as the pro darts player in that one was Bobby George, whilst in the one I saw it was Eric Bristow.

They've now started showing Dickinson's Real Deal. If you'll excuse the pun, what's the deal with that, eh?  Huh
