It's not often that one of the UK's most popular TV shows comes to town, but that's what happened in 1971, when Prestwick hosted an episode of the BBC's 'It's a Knockout', with the local team taking on rivals from Falkirk in a UK heat of the pan-European show.
The programme was the fourth in the 1971 series of It's a Knockout, and although the programme had not yet reached the popularity and massive audiences of the late 1970s, the arrival in the town of the BBC crew was a major event.
The games were played at in Prestwick on Sunday 9th May 1971, with the show hosted by Stuart Hall and Eddie Waring, with Arthur Ellis the referee. The programme was broadcast on BBC1 the following Wednesday, 12th May at 7.10pm.
Unfortunately, the tape of the programme appears to have been lost, with none of it existing in the BBC archive.
The Prestwick team were the winners of the programme by 14 points to five, and the winning team from Prestwick went on to take part in an edition of the European show, Jeux Sans Frontieres in July.
The international heat was held in Lac d'Allier, Vichy in France, and Prestwick performed credibly, finishing fourth in a heat which was won by Tournai from Belgium
One of the members of the Prestwick team was Brian Pickin, who also took part in the show for Ayr in 1975.
