Clips here



I remember being quite unnerved by that Vortex. I watched it a few times before realising that the celebrity contestants couldn't see it!

Oh yes I remember that one! Wasn't it a forerunner to Crystal Maze, which was also great fun.

It was quite similar to The Crystal Maze. I think of them both when the DCs watch Raven and Trapped.

Nodrap, yttotnekot?


Ah, the talking aspidistra. Wasn't it in charge, the head Argon or whatever they were?

Yes, those with the talking aspidistra, Lesley the Mole etc. were the later ones... They weren't in it to begin with. It had a bit of a revamp around series 2 or 3.

I think only one person (possibly Johnny Ball?) used the ham sandwich they were given at the end for the correct purpose - to toss on to the Vortex squares to test if the Vortex was there before moving! Everyone else did it "blind"!

I have to confess that I absolutely LOVED this programme. What were the token thingies called, drogma or something ?

UnquietDad Mon 11-Aug-08 14:22:52


Everything was an anagram of dragon - Argond, Rangdo etc.

Drogna, presumably (everything was an anagram of "dragon"). I did like this show... [sighs for lost youth].

The Aspidistra wass the uncle or grandfather. It didn't speak though, it just rustled and someone translated.

Or was that the crystal maze (doh)

I thought they threw a green cheese roll, not a ham sandwich.

I loved the Adventure Game.
