Opportunity Knocks is a British television and radio talent show originally hosted by Hughie Green, with a late-1980s revival hosted by Bob Monkhouse and later by previous winner Les Dawson.

The original radio version started on the BBC Light Programme from 18 February to 30 September 1949 but moved to Radio Luxembourg in the 1950s. It was shown on ITV from 20 June 1956 to 29 August 1956, produced by Associated Rediffusion

A second run commenced on 11 July 1964 and lasted until 20 March 1978, produced first by ABC and then by Thames Television.

Hughie Green presented a single episode of Opportunity Knocks for RTÉ in 1979. 

Opportunity Knocks was revived by the BBC from 21 March 1987 to 2 June 1990, hosted initially by Bob Monkhouse from 1987 to 1989 (under the title "Bob Says Opportunity Knocks!") and subsequently by Les Dawson in 1990.

My memories of Opportunity Knocks are of the show as compered by Hughie Green

I like to think of the Opportunity Jesus affords each of us as He knocks on the door of our hearts.

It would seem that we build extensions for ourselves each with another door.  
He said in Revelation 3:20
'Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.
Are you into room building?
Are there any doors that remain locked to Jesus?
Please take this opportunity with me to open your heart to Jesus now. 


  1. What a way to bring it home, Jack. Well done.

    Biiig hug, brother.

  2. Thanks Deborah
    Biiiiiig hug back

  3. Bravo Jackie!!! Loved the way you tied a television program with giving Jesus full access in our lives. Peace and Blessings

  4. Sometimes opening that door is really painful though! Sometimes I want to say, "no one's here, Lord!" Who said fruit growing was easy, even when opportunity affords?

  5. thanks Terrie, biiiiiiiiiiig hug
    I know me too but it's "Jesus, Lover of my soul" who is knocking.
    biiiiiiiig hug Kerimae

  6. Very cool, it really is pretty simple to open the door to Jesus. Sometimes we make it seem incredibly difficult. Glad to hear your refreshing message JB :-)
