1976 horror runaround with charles hawtrey



At the peak of 70s occult mainstream mania, not even a children's TV gameshow could escape the particular weirdness of the era. I would have loved to have been on Runaround, especially this Halloween special (thank you Kevin Younger), which revelled in all kinds of not for children type visuals (presenter Mike Reid carrying his guillotined head and the like), gory questions and Carry On's Charles Hawtrey doing a spectacularly weird (and probably sozzled) guest turn.

  1. Awesome! Have to love Hawtrey. I remember this show well...it was rubbish (in a good way).
