100 Greatest Toys With Jonathan Ross (2010)

100 Greatest Toys With Jonathan Ross (2010)
Gadget, gizmo and toy collector extraordinaire Jonathan Ross is to present 100 Greatest Toys - a three-hour countdown that takes a nostalgic look at the nation's favourite toys and games. From Action Man to Yahtzee, Barbie to Trivial Pursuit; inventors and toy-makers tell the inside stories of their creations and success. And to fully explain the impact of these toys and games, the children of yesteryear - today's celebrities, authors, actors and journalists - tell exactly what it was that made them love a particular toy.
There'll be a chance to find out how Action Man evolved from the American GI Joe action doll and just how Tomorrow's World inspired his haircut. What was the genesis of Barbie? And just who came up with the iconic design of the Raleigh Chopper? There is also the chance to learn how a one-time wimp created the world's toughest action figure and how the Vietnam War almost destroyed Britain's Matchbox toy car range.
The shortlist of 100 toys was selected by a panel of industry experts. A selection of yester year's toys will be road-tested on the kids of today to see if they hold the same appeal. The final countdown will be decided by a Channel 4 online web vote.
