'The Privatisation Show'

This is a game show parody satirising the privatisation of local public services in the 1980s. It was a joint production of the General, Municipal and Boilermakers' Union, the National and Local Government Officers' Association, the National Union of Public Employees and the Transport and General Workers' Union.

If you are of a certain vintage (or just a devotee of cheesey TV), you will detect a resemblance to The Price is Right in the Leslie Crowther era.
