Danny Baker hosts this new seven-part comedy panel game which features two celebrity teams answering questions like these about a bygone era. As
Baker says, we all find it easier to recall trivial items than important ones. We may not want to remember all the words to the first commercials for Smith's Crisps, but we often do.
Craig Ferguson and Rick Wakeman are the team captains, with special guests each week.
If you're still puzzled, the answers to the questions above are Hanky Panky popcorn, Ronco and Tony Holland.

Comedy directed by and starring
Alan Alda , with Michael Caine
The sleepy New England town of Sayeville gets an object lesson in movie-making when a crew arrives to film a historical epic based on a local academic's book. The inhabitants discover that for today's Hollywood films characters must do three things: defy authority, destroy property, and take people's clothes off. If those elements don't fit the facts, then the facts will just have to change. So the scene is set for lust, action, romance and laughter. And that's just behind the camera.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
