Who Dares Wins was a British television comedy sketch show broadcast between 1983 and 1988, featuring Jimmy Mulville, Rory McGrath, Philip Pope, Julia Hills and Tony Robinson. The program sometimes satirised current events but the mainstay was simple observational comedy and frequently employed base humour
It was one of the first TV outlets for alternative comedy and was broadcast by Channel 4 late at night in a first attempt at "Post-Pub television". The show was recorded at the former independent production facility Limehouse Studios in front of a studio audience.
The show has never been released on DVD and is pretty hard to find episodes of, although TheBox members are lucky enough to be able to access series 3 and 4 on the site.
I found this old episode while going through a batch of my old VHS tapes. :smile:
The credits of this episode list it as produced in 1985 which would make it from series 2 shown in November and December of that year. The 1985 Christmas episode (S02E08) has been posted at TheBox, but this definitely isn't that episode as I found that one as well on a different tape, and capped it for sharing before realising it was already posted! :-/
Unfortunately I haven't been able to find an episode guide on the internet which can help identify the exact episode number this is from series 2. If anybody finds something which can pinpoint it then please leave a comment and I'll update the torrent accordingly, but in the meantime this is just S02E0x !
