I haven't seen that many of these tv listings for Knightmare since their original publication. I wonder if this is the first one to name the team members in it?

I recall seeing a TV listings scan on Twitter the other week that named Julie's team from Series 3 (1989). Despite a lot of searching, I cannot find it now so we'll have to discount that.

With thanks to Adrian Dalby again, this scan from Friday 23rd November 1990 names all of Team 6, the Series 4 winners.

The Christmas 1988 issue of Radio Times covers the last episode of Series 2 (Monday 19 December 1988, page 56) but goes for gender and nationality - 'four young lassies from Scotland' - over names.

This October 1988 release may give us an idea of the level of detail which Anglia TV released to the press for possible inclusion in TV listings (from Series 2 onwards if not Series 1), even if all that information didn't make it into print.

Great stuff, thanks for retreiving that information. It's nice that the teams were, sometimes at least, viewed on equal terms by the media to the bona fida stars of the Dunhelm players Hugo, John, Mark et al.

Possibly the first series, Mashibinbin; I think the TV Times entries listed other team members for series four. Also, we had a photo taken with Treguard and Pickle by a press photographer and she sent it to our local papers, which seemed to be standard routine.
