From the Vault – Vintage Game and Quiz Shows: It's In The Bag

  • Friday 1 Dec

G Originally hosted by Selwyn Toogood, It's in the Bag travelled throughout New Zealand, plucking competitors from a live audience, who had to answer three questions before selecting a bag, and bargaining for an unknown prize detailed within. Along the way, Toogood's catchphrases, including "by hokey!" and "what'll it be customers, the money or the bag?", became firmly cemented in Kiwi pop culture. This 1974 clip, telecast from Dunedin's Mayfair Theatre, sees a Frigidaire "Jet-o-matic" Home Laundry up for grabs, but also, as one not-so-lucky winner discovers, a booby prize.
