Made by Media Merchants
(proprietor - N. Buchanan) for Meridian.
Presenters - Emma Lee
(blonde, was on Watch This Space and that sort of
rubbish, now on the Disney Channel or somewhere) and Dave

The premise - Set in the
Teleganticmegavision 'studio complex' (ie Maidstone
Studios), and each programme would include behind the
scenes of some programme or other (coincidentally all
Media Merchants productions -
Art Attack, Terror Towers etc.), some features on special

Animaniacs et al) which were introduced from the
'animation station', which is where they were supposed to
have been 'made'.
A typical exchange would be

Danni off Neighbours - "I'm having an interview in
Presenter - "Oh, let's practice!"

After a few weeks, after
that got really tiresome, it became a bog-standard
Saturday show, with a whooping crew, and guests just
turning up and so on.

b) Deeply contrived.
c) It was all pre-recorded and boring anyway.
d) Had a stupid, stupid name.
After a few weeks, the
pattern was changed to 9.25 Teleganticmegavision, 10.25
Repeats of Spatz, 10.55 a shorter version of It's Not
On the last programme, they
said 'See you in September!' They never did though.
