My fav Bowen memory is of him swearing on The James Whale Show when he thought that we as off camera.

He went back on the following week to apologise, predominantly to his wife who apparently had never in all their years of marriage heard him swear before.

one of the reasons Pointless is undisputably the Best Quiz On TV these days is the fact that everyone on it knows they’re probably going home with fuck all, even the winners, and are just there for the fun of it.
