Bullseye - Jim Bowen trolls a murderer...
Darts is a form of throwing game in which small missiles are thrown at a circular target (dartboard) fixed to a wall..Darts were historically used in warfare in ancient history; skirmishers used darts of varying sizes, similar to miniature javelins..Bullseye was created and owned by Andrew Wood, who came up with the idea after doing research into aspects which created mass appeal for all viewers in a gameshow.. Programme associates on the show were Mickey Brennan and Roger Edwards..The series centred on darts, which placed 3 pairs of contestants (each team with one person to answer questions and one darts player) against one another to win prizes ranging from a new car, a speedboat, a caravan or a luxury holiday to the consolation prizes of a set of darts, a tankard (for male contestants), a silver goblet (for female contestants) and a 'Bendy Bully' a rubber model of the show's mascot..

John William Cooper (born 3 September 1944) is a serial killer from Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire.. On 26 May 2011 he was given 4 life sentences for the 1985 double murder of brother and sister Richard and Helen Thomas, and the 1989 double murder of Peter and Gwenda Dixon.. Cooper was also sentenced for the rape of a 16-year old girl and a sexual assault on a 15-year-old girl, both carried out at gunpoint, in March 1996, in woodland behind the Mount Estate, Milford Haven..

On 28 May 1989, Cooper participated in a recording of the ITV gameshow Bullseye.. Cooper remarked to host Jim Bowen that he had an unusual hobby of scuba diving, Bowen remarking that Pembrokeshire was the ideal location - Ayako Okamoto wins LPGA Corning Golf Classic - Indianapolis 500: Emerson Fittipaldi wins..

On 29 June 1989 Peter and Gwenda Dixon were on holiday in Pembrokeshire and were due to take their last walk along the coastal path when they failed to return. Their bodies were later found along the coastal path.. Cooper tied the couple up and demanded them to hand out their bank card and then forced them to disclose their personal identification number (PIN).. Cooper, carrying a sawn-off shotgun, robbed Peter Dixon of £300 and shot the couple in the face at point blank range..The two sets of murders gave rise to much speculation, and at one time there was a theory that the Dixons were killed because they came across a cache of IRA weapons - The National Party adopts a five year programme of its objectives which included a political "reform" plan to give South Africa's Black majority a role in national as well as local government spheres; the African National Congress (ANC) said that it would consider nothing less than a one-man, one-vote system- Emmy 16th Daytime Award presentation - Susan Lucci loses for 10th time..

Mr Elias said that on 6 March 1996, the defendant approached 5 teenagers aged 15 and 16 walking through fields by the Mount Estate School, Milford Haven..The court heard he pulled out a double-barrelled shotgun and forced them all to lie face down on the ground..He dragged one 16-year-old girl by the hair and raped her at knifepoint.. He then indecently assaulted a 15-year-old girl before threatening the teenagers and firing the shotgun in the air..Mr Elias said each of the 3 incidents "involved the use of cold, calculating violence" and 2 of them "the merciless execution of 4 people"..He said: "All the victims were subjected to the most terrifying of ordeals"..5 and 6 form a Ruth–Aaron pair under either definition..

In December 1998, Mr Cooper was jailed for 16 years at Swansea Crown Court for 30 counts of burglary and a robbery, serving 10 years..
