"Monkhouse announcing"

TV TV Cream celebrated the 75th anniversary of television with a list of great moments, simultaneously making up for the BBC's own understated celebration (I'm catching up on some reading -- can you tell?):
"58. Bob Monkhouse announcing the end of the power workers’ strike live during an edition of The Golden Shot (ITV, 1970)"
Imagine news being broken during The X-Factor. Imagine how awkward it would be for Dermot O'Leary to make an announcement from the stage. Yet somehow Monkhouse had the gravitas to pull this off. I assume. Anyone seen the video?
