Filmed in Jersey as a co-production of Carlton Television and Channel Television, it was hosted by Phil Tufnell and Kirsty Gallacher, and featured the cheerleaders from the American football team the Scottish Claymores.
Each week two teams from cities across the UK competed in a series of madcap games to go forward to a final, where the eventual prize was £50,000 for local community projects.
The series was directly based on a French series entitled Intervilles (Intercity), from which It's a Knockout had previously been adapted.
In 2015 the reruns of the 2004 series will be shown on Challenge.
