I was once (1998?) interviewed for a local (ITV Meridian) late-night show on which Keith Chegwin also appeared. I maintain that it gives me a Bacon Number of 3!

Been on tv for Eggheads in 2008 and Brainteaser in 2006.

Can clearly be seen a lot in the audience for 1vs100 from a few years back!
I have been on both those quizzes as well.

Re interest in reality TV about "real" railways:
There's a TV programme currently running here in Finland about the Finnish railways (VR), following the day-to-day work of all kinds of people employed there -- not only drivers, but also guards, buffet car staff, administrative employees, and so on. My son (the other half of TeamHelsinki) is involved in timetable planning at VR and apparently just managed to dodge a camera crew when they were filming the programme around New Year.

Was watching The Chase on Challenge Channel about 4 days ago. There was a chap from Worthing who says he held the tube record. Dunno if he's on here.
Current best: 19:51:10 (2014). Hopefully that will be broken in 2018 :-)

That would be me :D
I did okay in the Cash Builder and made it to the final chase.
I was a bit annoyed at myself because I messed up 2 or 3 answers in the final chase and we missed a couple of push backs.
Would have been nice to win a few quid, but it was a good day out.
