I can't remember what it was called. All I remember is that it had huge props, as if the contestants were very very small. An example of this is a task in which they were required to find objects in a giant cereal bowl. It had a kick ass high fidelity soundtrack.

It was on in the mid 90's. Anyone remember it? It wasn't Fun-House, that's for sure.

This sounds like the show "Incredible Games". It was broadcast between 1994-1995 (two series) by the BBC. It included a variety of games, performed by contestants between the ages of 11 and 14. The show itself was set in a fictional skyscraper, with a talking lift.

The aim of the show was to complete each game (set on a "floor" of the skyscraper), gradually rising up the tower, until finally reaching the penthouse, where prizes could be won. If a player lost a game, they were sent to the "basement" of the tower (the laundry room), and the other players had to take the lift back down to rescue them.

Two of the more famous games were the alphabet soup game, where giant letters had to fished out of swimming pool (supposedly a soupbowl) to make words on the "fridge", and the "Dark Knight game". In this game, the contestants had to move from square to square on a chess board until they reached the end. The catch was that the "dark knight" was attempting to stop them. Fortunately for the players, he could only see where they had been, not where they were.

I also remember a programme where someone had to complete a maze (including jumps etc), and the team mates of that person were watching via a TV screen and giving assistance and instructions.

Heh, no but I found out what it was. Crystal Maze was awesome too! It would have been (and still would be) so fun to play hide and seek in that place.

I remember a programme with a turkey and they used to speak funny; none of my friends remember.... please tell me I havent just made this up... please!
When I read this a picture of a Turkey eating too much of something and going 'gobble gobble' (Turkey noise lol) whilst running around. I hate it when I can't remember things because I'll about it all night now!

lol I am jealous. I'm sure though that if I watched either again I'd think they were pants. I found an episode of zzzap on Youtube, and it just wasn't as good as I remembered it to be
