The series began in 1968. Initially it was on The Nashville Network (now known as Spike TV). It later moved to the Outdoor Life Network (now known as 'NBCSN' in the U.S.). Tony McClure is the executive producer.
The show has produced four blooper videos showing outtakes and mishaps during filming of the show and related commercials, as well as the hijinks of some of Bill's friends, guests, film crew, and family members, which have been broadcast in several bloopers and outtakes television shows in the U.S. and overseas.
