A change in format for It's A Knockout as each weekly competition is now between three teams, rather than two. The BBC stage the first It's A Celebrity Knockout featuring many famous names from British television and sport. Future series producer, Geoff Wilson is promoted from production team member to become Director.

This year, the British representative in the British heat of Jeux Sans Frontières has to compete for that honour (instead of being decided by its score in the Domestic heats, as was the case in previous years).

At the end of the year after all the results were analysed, 1975 turned out to Great Britain’s worst-ever year in Jeux Sans Frontières, finishing in the bottom three places in seven out of the eight International programmes played. This resulted in the nation finishing bottom in the total points and placings leagues and gave the BBC something to think about for the following year.

On a happier note, French team Nancy reach their second consecutive International Final, and on their third attempt of trying in total, enjoy the spoils by winning the Jeux Sans Frontières Golden Trophy.
