The National Lottery Live – 1st Programme

On the 19th of November 1994, actor and comedian Gordon Kennedy ("Absolutely" and "Gregory's Girl") introduces the first ever National Lottery show before handing over to Noel Edmonds in a security lorry, heading for Television Center with the lottery machine and the cash! … (Unlikely as the machine would have already been installed in the studio for testing and the jackpot, at that point, would have been unknown). … What would Health and Safety say now to having a lorry driven into a studio with 400 audience members? Trivia fans might like to know that the first draw jackpot, … was around ~£7.3m, and was won by 7 ticket holders who won around ~£800,000 each. … Not bad eh?
