THE GAMESMASTER RETROSPECTIVE PODCAST

What Was GamesMaster?

GamesMaster ran from 1992-1998 on the British television station Channel 4. It was the first ever UK Television show to be dedicated to computer and video games, and despite it's early evening time slot of 6:30pm it also broken ground for how many double entendres and innuendo could be crammed into a pre-watershed programme without raising the ire of irate mothers and church goers everywhere.

The show spawned a number of live events, numerous immitators and a tie-in gaming magazine that outlived the original run of the show by over 2 and a half decades. It also influenced and corrupted a generation of gamers who learnt quite emphatically that there was more than one way to interpret the phrase 'waggle your joystick'.
