Anneka Rice hails Treasure Hunt as landmark for women on TV

OHMYGOSSIP — Anneka Rice has hailed her ‘Treasure Hunt’ series as a landmark moment for women.
The 64-year-old presenter – who flew in a helicopter following clues from 1982 to 1988 – has reflected on the way her programme helped change the way women were presented with more opportunities on air.
Speaking to Radio Times magazine, she said: “Up till then, when you saw women on television, they were mostly draped over cars on ‘The Golden Shot’ or in a bikini being chased by Benny Hill. Or they were newsreaders behind a desk.
“Suddenly, there I was, calling the shots.
And she also pointed to the way her ‘Challenge Anneka’ show in the 1990s – which she is reviving for Channel 5 – featured women behind the camera.
She added: “It was mostly women. It was groundbreaking stuff. Many of them have gone on to practically run television.”
The series saw Anneka take on new tasks with absolutely no knowledge of what she’d be doing, and she’s delighted to be bringing it back to Channel 5.
She previously said: “There’s been whispers for years, because anytime anyone talks to me about doing anything on telly, after about ten minutes the conversation always comes back to Challenge, and all the broadcasters have discussed it with me.
“Some wanted me to do it as a comedy thing, because I’m now doing stand-up comedy, and they wanted me and a comedian doing it together, and it just never felt right.”
Meanwhile, bosses were determined not to mess with the format too much for its revival.
She added: “It was the alchemy of Ben Frow at Channel 5, who just went, ‘No, I just want it as it was, no gimmicks.’
“And you know, that was right, because at the end of the day, it is literally just about kindness, community, and the power of collective. It’s not about gimmicks at all. Well, apart from the truck!”
