This bizarre comedy quiz hosted by Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer has captured the surreal side of British viewers since its first appearance during At Home with Vic and Bob in 1993, later becoming a fully fledged series in 1995.
So what's the idea of the show? Well, basically, Vic and Bob introduce several tongue-in-cheek rounds in which two teams consisting of team captains and four celebrity guests have to answer completely off-the-wall questions such as "are merry-go-round horses stuffed with real horse" and "Do Swedish cars run on Red Wine". Also, bald-headed George Dawes or bizarre bag-man Angelos announce the scores at the end of each round.
Warning! This show is only for those who think their brains can stand the intense madness and wacky events incorporated into it! Witty jokes and plain fun make a great show that is well worth watching.

In 1993 a pilot episode of Shooting Stars was screened on BBC2 as part of the 'At Home with Vic and Bob' evening of programming. The pilot show differed in several ways. The team captains were Jonathan Ross and Danny Baker; the Dove from Above was a blue suitcase (referred to as the Bleu Valise); the contestants' names on the desks were their forenames not surnames; and the teams weren't called A and B, instead they were the Starbirds (with a plane logo) and the Helicopters (with a... you can guess). Guests were Wendy Richard, Martin Clunes, Ulrika Jonsson and Noddy Holder.
