There's a heading "information needed" at the end which is in need of replacement regarding transmissions. I remember Sale of the Century being shown on RTÉ television in Ireland in the late 1970s when most people in the Republic of Ireland could only receive one channel (RTE) until 1978 when RTÉ2 began broadcasting.

Clip of original UK 'from Norwich, it's the Quiz of the Week ...' Nicholas Parcels version here:  - OK, it's actually Benny Hill but I'm sure Nicholas would approve. The announcer is Paul Eddington. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:09, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
Sale Of The Half Century (Season 7, Episode 4, 21 April 1976, according to imdb). A fitting tribute, I think. Could probably fill a "Legacy and impact" section all on its own.

Thanks for the info - good idea - I actually remember watching it (both the parody and the Nicholas Parsons series) at the time, although did not remember the year was 1976. Remembered the girl's name was 'Melonie' though. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:38, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
