Bob Holness, Host of UK "Blockbusters", is Dead at 83
Unless there was another foreign version of Blockbusters since 1980, Bill Rafferty is the only Blockbusters host still with us today.
Still, it's a sad loss in the game show world. R.I.P. Mr. Holness.
Besides Bill Rafferty, there are 7 other hosts (that I know of) of international verions of Blockbusters who are still with us. They are UK's Michael Aspel & Liza Tarbuck, Australia's Michael Pope, Germany's Frank Laufenberg & Ingo Dubinski and Italy's Corrado Tedeschi & Paolo Bonolis.
By the way, Holness' daughter Ros was a member of the now-defunct UK girl band Toto Coelo(known as Total Coelo in the US because a band called Toto was already in existence) and had a a song called "I Eat Cannibals, Part 1", which reached #66 in the US and #8 in the UK. The video for "I Eat Cannibals, Part 1" is HERE.
