Curtain closes on Spicks and Specks
WITH the end drawing nigh – ABC’S muchloved Spicks and Specks will have its final television hurrah on November 23 – it’s time to roll out two ‘‘ best- of specials’’ so we’ll all realise what we’ll be missing.
This first instalment is a motley and hilarious collection of host Adam Hills and team leaders Myf Warhurst and Alan Brough’s ( all pictured) favourite moments over seven seasons, right back to that first daggy episode in an almost bare studio, with makeshift desks.
Worth the trip down memory lane if only to check out funnyman Hamish Blake’s bowl haircut in series one, the formation of ‘‘ the Warhurst method’’ of working out song titles ( and then singing them at length) and . . . shadow puppets.
Spicks and Specks attracted an average weekly audience of 1.35 million viewers last year and has been among ABC1’ s top 10 programs, based on series averages, each year from 2006- 10.
