Dizzy on TV

Postby Adz.M » Sun Oct 02, 2016 3:07 pm

There's a gaming themed TV show currently airing in the UK on the channel Dave called "Dara O' Briain's Go 8-bit".
And I couldn't help but notice that a familiar face appears on one scene in the show's intro.
This is probably the closest we'll ever get to seeing Dizzy on TV these days. :p

Good spot! :v2_dizzy_clapping:
And he is the only game character in the crowd (in that shot at least, I have not seen the whole sequence, but I guess Donkey Kong has something to do with the barrel or is that Farmer Bob from Chuckie Egg top right?), so maybe the programme makers are big Dizzy fans?

hahah, i've been watching this, such a fun show but i never noticed that.
Not sort of, it's offical Dizzy is in tv.

They did play Chuckie Egg a few weeks ago so it probably is. Dizzy may make an appearance.

I noticed during that sequence Dizzy jumps and flips, someone clearly knew their Dizzy games.

Looks like there is a second series coming soon, and did I spot a familiar face at the end of the trailer? Looks like (at least) one of our favourite 8 bit programmers might guest, but I can't tell which one ;)

Yeah I saw the trailer too.
The new series looks promising after seeing Philip on there. :)

It is said to air on Monday 15th May - no time set yet though.

That's good, i enjoyed the last series.
Don't get the tv channel but they let you watch via their website, thankfully.

Last night's episode of 'Dara O'Briain's Go 8-bit' featured a segment on the final part where they not only played Kwik Snax, but The Oliver Twins also made an appearance.

You can see the episode on demand via UKTV Play (UK only)
https://uktvplay.uktv.co.uk/shows/dara- ... ch-online/

If you cannot watch it online, the episode will be repeated on Dave on Thursday 1st June - 8pm and Sunday 4th June - 4:30pm.

...didn't realise the Oliver's liked a bit of head banging :v2_dizzy_lol:

But their modern hairstyles are brilliant and look just like mine :tup:
