What to do if you’re stuck in a bog

Tucked away in the corner of my house is a set of VHS tapes. Which is annoying because my VHS player no longer works.

Before it broke I managed to digitise some of them, and one contained this utterly fantastic sketch from Going Live in the late 1980s.

If you were, like me, a Going Live fan, you’ll recognise Trev and Simon whose sketches were a key part of the show. What made the duo so good was that their comedy – as with all the best kids comedy – never spoke down to children and was just as much fun for the adults watching as well!

This sketch, Hike It!, is a prime example. It makes me laugh even to this day, as both a Trev and Simon fan and as walker too!

So what do you do, according to Hike It, if you’re stuck in a bog? Well let’s just say it doesn’t involve eating jacket potatoes.

Have your say
