You silly numbnut. Rainbow is a real show, however, this wasn't an episode of rainbow, it's a show that was recorded for the BBC Technical Team's Christmas Party as part of a showreel of parodies, it was never aired, and was never meant to be available to the public ;)

Sorry to burst your bubble, grasshopper but here's the real deal from someone in the know.

An alert MySpace friend of ours passed along the following info about this clip:

Back in the early days, before the days of VHS and now recordable DVDs etc the VT departments of both the BBC and ITV would make elaborate out-take, piss-take shows for sending out to their staff. The practice was stopped by the various TV managements once copies got out on Betamax and VHS around the early eighties for legal / taste reasons etc.

THE 'Twangers' clip was actually written by Roy Skelton, who not only voiced Zippy AND George, but was also a Dalek in many old Doctor Who stories.

It's a real tape with the real performers, but it was filmed as a joke and never intended for public consumption. There was a great tradition at the BBC and ITV companies of the videotape editing departments compiling tapes for their Christmas parties - including clips with shows shot especially for the internal tape."

"In 1979, the cast and crew of Rainbow made a special edition for the Thames TV staff Christmas tape. This show featured plenty of intended sexual innuendo, and although not shown at the time (as it was never intended to air), it has since been aired for the amusement of those who grew up with the show." (from Wikipedia)

Bizzle, it was copied and pasted from a YouTube comment and Wikipedia. Not me knowing THAT much about Rainbow, mate. Dels, "numbnut" was just a joke, wasn't throwing an offensive shot at you. And like I said, sorry for bursting the bubble on your show. However, find the sick fuck that altered it (i believe it was Biz) and get medieval on him!!
