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.
