Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ideal entertainment for viewers in Northern England, Indoor League was devoted to "pub games," among them bar billiards, skittles, and the ever-popular Shove Ha' Penny. The series was hosted by cricket star Fred Trueman, whose sublime indifference to the proceedings was easily the most entertaining aspect. The pub was a mere TV studio set, but the players were real (and, it is rumored, so was the beer). Telecast weekdays at noon, Indoor League began its run in 1978 or thereabouts.
