Cult children's TV show Knightmare returns on stage

The television show Knightmare, which was first broadcast on ITV in 1987, has been converted to a stage show at the Edinburgh Festival.

The original children's programme made use of blue-screen technology and the game was played by children, but in Knightmare Live the roles are taken by adults.

Paul Flannery, the producer of Knightmare Live and the actor who plays Treguard in the stage version, said that "it is the right time to bring it back".

Knightmare Live coincides with a revival of Knightmare as part of YouTube's 'Geek Week'.
