Victoria Hospital Angels play It’s a Knockout

It’s a Knockout was a hit BBC TV show that was in its heyday during the 1970s.

Teams representing their town or city completed tasks in absurd games, often dressed in large foam rubber suits (there was no internet then, kids).

This photograph captioned “It’s a Knockout 1977” shows a team called the Victoria Hospital Angels, presumably made up of members of Blackpool hospital staff.

It’s a Knockout made a number of visits to the Fylde coast over the years. It’s not clear whether this team was competing in the TV series or a locally organised event.
