Golden Years of Television

Gladiators was a TV series that entertained millions on a British Saturday night. It inspired children to be healthier and pursue their dreams. This podcast brings back fantastic memories with in-depth conversation with all the folks who made this incredible series possible. Thank you!

An Amazing Show!

I grew up watching the American Gladiators and just recently did I find the UK Gladiators on YouTube and I’ve been watching every single episode. The show and the Gladiators were much more grand than ours even though we were the ones that started it all. This is an amazing show especially listening along as a first time viewer. Plus...Jet....need I say more! Looking forward to more.
