NZ Screen History: It's in the Bag

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:30 pm on 4 March 2021

This week for New Zealand Screen History we take a look back at the hugely popular quiz show It's in the Bag which screened from 1973 to 1979. 

It was dreamed up by broadcaster Selwyn Toogood and began its life as a radio show, which he campaigned to bring to television.

In each episode of this roving quiz show, members from the audience answered questions to get the chance to choose either a cash prize or a mystery bag. 

Heather Crofksey, formerly known as Heather Eggleton, was the original co-host of the show and has fond memories of her two seasons on it.
