100 Greatest Toys with Jonathan Ross

100 Greatest Toys with Jonathan Ross

About this programme

A countdown of the nation's favourite games, gadgets and playthings, as decided by a Channel 4 online poll. Inventors and toy-makers tell the inside stories of their creations and successes - including Action Man, Yahtzee, Barbie and Trivial Pursuit - while the children of yesteryear, namely today's celebrities, authors, actors and journalists, take a nostalgic look back at the toys they loved. Also revealed is the inspiration behind the design of the Raleigh Chopper, the unlikely individual responsible for the creation of one of the world's toughest action figures, and why the Vietnam War almost brought Britain's Matchbox car range to an end.
