    Loved him on Bullseye many years ago. Still watch it on obscure FreeSat sites!

    Another sad loss. Jim Bowen was Bullseye on a Saturday evening. It was never the same after he retired.

    He used to live in a disused railway station at Arkholme for Kirkby Lonsdale. I’ve actually walked on the platform when he lived there. I was out there with my walking pals having walked from Ingleton in North Yorkshire.

    For those who’ve never seen it this is a climax to one show! Bullseye

    Super, smashing, great.

    One thing I couldn’t figure out about Bullseye. The competitors played in pairs so what did the eventual winners do with their winnings ?

    Bearing in mind the first prize was something like a car, a boat and sometimes a fitted kitchen, none of which can be split into two !

    After a couple of months the winning couple were given a price for the main prize. This was then split between them. The example I saw was a car valued at £1,700 (long time ago!) which they accepted. Best is when someone nowhere near to water won a speedboat!

    I was just going to say BE that the prize could be converted to money to split

    Yes BE and the car wasn’t usually an E-type Jag or a Porsche but the bottom of the range Reliant Robin or Fiat Panda. The boats always intrigued me as I dont imagine many of the ‘lucky’ winners would have a tow-bar fitted to their  cars plus, the boats wre incredibly small like a dingy or suchlike.

    I heard an interview with Jim Bowen on Talksport a few weeks back. He was still on he ‘after dinner speech’ circuit and working as hard as ever in the clubs etc.

    It was the last bit of the show that used to amuse me. After the contestants had lost their prizes by gambling on the 101 with 6 darts, he took them to the opening curtains and said “now let’s take a look at what you could have won”  :yahoo:
