What are "The Golden Shot" and "Mr. And Mrs.?"
I support The Price is Right.

The Golden Shot was an early interactive gameshow in which viewers phoned in and the idea was to direct a blindfolded cameraman with a crossbow to shoot directly at a target in order to win big cash prizes.
It ran from 1967-1975.

Mr & Mrs involved married couples answering questions based on each other's daily habits, work, hobbies, etc.  and how much they really know about each other.
It ran from the early 70s, although not continuously.

"Mr. & Mrs."...

...sounds like a British version of The Newlywed Game.

Your powers of deduction are most impressive .. sigh

Actually the Mr and Mrs Game is older, HTV West Kinda produced it so Im sure it aired here on HTV Wales well before it went national on the ITV network.

I think HTV Wales did produce a Welsh version though.

Makes me question who owns the licence to the game, im guessing Carlton.

According to ukgameshows.com, it seems it first aired in 1964 and was then produced by ATV, with HTV picking up the format around 6 years later.
