WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Scottish Television believe they are on to a winner with their new game show ‘Wheel of Fortune‘ which starts on Tuesday 19 July. But if it‘s important to them. it‘s even more immediately important to the Network. In partnership with ‘The Bill'. which from the same date returns in a new twice weekly. half hour format. the two programmes are intended to boost one of the weakest evenings in the ITV week.
A lot will be riding on the appeal of presenter. Aberdeen University graduate and Radio One DJ. Nicky Campbell. ‘He‘s one of those rare people‘. says Executive Producer Sandy Boss. ‘whom the camera likes. He’s able to look into the camera. and he's comanding.‘ The lormattorthe show is American. and in the states it‘s TVs biggest game show. It‘s regularly watched by 43 million people every day in two editions- 3 morning and evening show. The amount the American presenters make from the show makes the twice a day cash prize of $100,000 look like pocket money.
‘lt‘s the biggest light entertainment show we have done fora long. long time', admits Boss and Scottish Television is clearly delighted to have won the rights to make the British version of the game. The deal was struck by the Action Time company for Scottish Television by Jeremy Fox (who now works for Scottish Television‘s American arm). Discussions had to be had with the IBA before production could go ahead in order to satisfy the authority that the show was a game of skill and not of chance. and because of
which each documentary is commissioned from a different company Tonight’s programme takes the forth of a one-man play.

identical to the American show. ‘Basically it's just a very good game‘. says Boss. ‘Like all the best games the idea is very simple. and there is an almost hypnotic fascination to where the wheel will stop.‘ Boss claims its ‘classier‘ than the recently mothballed “The Price is Bight‘. but nobody should expect Mastermind.
Although the thirteen week run was sold to the network before recent changes in the structure that will make it easier in future forthe non ‘big live' companies to grab network space. ‘Wheel of Fortune‘ still has important implications forScottish Television‘s future. ‘We‘ve showed that we are strong on current affairs and drama. and now we are developing our strength in light entertainment. kids shows and comedy.‘ says Boss. ‘We have to look to the time when we are notjust selling advertising space. but selling programmes too.’ (NB)
