Tenon Saw - Google tells me that would be the game show Crystal Maze but I never saw it as I left the UK in the 80's.

Almost American said...

Sure Expat Mum, if you want. I've got the answers scheduled to post on Wednesday evening.

Expat mum said...

Great lists. I think I know them all apart from 1 & 10. I know them but can't for the life of me remember who said them.
