People: BBC rolls back the years for Lottery show
Wednesday 12 November 1997
Ten years of continuous revolution under John Birt and competition from satellite and cable mean nothing in the fantasy land where sets are made of chip board.
In a revolutionary revamp of the Saturday night National Lottery show the BBC has announced that it is to be hosted by a line up of rotating "big name entertainers". So far signed up is Bruce Forsyth, Ronnie Corbett, Shirley Bassey and Dame Edna Everage.
In an effort to give the show a more contemporary feel Eighties comedians Hale and Pace get a show and Nineties children's entertainers Ant and Dec have a go too.
But we can only cross our fingers that they never find little Lena Zavaroni.
