Articles In The Project:



Back-Up Copies

I plan to make a copy of the entire project for safe-keeping. This is because it is the project pages themselves that are subbed (not copies, as is the case for Edited Entries), so in the unlikely event of the Sub accidentally deleting a page, we have back-ups.

The Story Behind The Article

In 2003 Ecnal Silyab began writing a series of articles about British television series that are re-made in America. He then wrote two more related articles, one looking at comedy & drama and one looking at game shows and stated that he intended to write a fourth entry, which would be a list of all remakes. Sadly he left h2g2 soon after.

In 2015 Bluebottle decided to rescue the article from the Flea Market. Soon after looking at it, he realised that this would not be the quick polish he had at first assumed, but would function better as a Uni project.

It is a very wide, but fascinating topic that this project only hopes to cover a basic introduction to.

I hope to keep the Game Shows article solely credited to original author Ecnal Silyab, keeping his original voice as much as possible.
