It's a Knockout! was British game show that started in 1966 on the BBC. Described as school sports day for adults, it featured teams representing a city or town who would score points depending on how well they completed a task.
The show was adapted with communities hosting the same challenges at their local fair.
The winning team would receive a It's a Knockout! trophy and the chance to represent the UK in the international version Jeux Sans Frontieres against other teams from across Europe.
