In the summer of 1993, a Transmanian game show High Tension hit the daytime, afternoon and nighttime airwaves on ATN with the same elements of other Barry-Enright game shows, and has since been widely considered to be one of the best game shows. While no aired episodes were missing, there were 2 episodes of the main game that was missing.

According to executive producer Samuel Covalo, there was a male contestant as a university professor Dan Mancini who chooses "Singers" for £300 in the first main round before he clearly hears the question posed by host Carla Pales; were not specified, The cameras zoomed to his face while he allegedly heard the question read by the host. Nothing changes when he continued to hear the question again about Michael Jackson's original skin colour. He guesses the word "white" instead of saying the correct answer "black", but it was wrong, and his opponent Sharon Stone gets to steal the money by guessing the correct answer "black" (the colour of the skin and the hair of African Americans). In a missing episode airing as a season 2 premiere in 1994, he returned as a current champion chooses "Singers" (which brought back by producers and writers) again for £500, he heard the question about the Italian opera singer who did tenors, the last name was Pavarotti and he guesses "Don" instead of saying "Luciano" and it was wrong and he scores a negative £500, and his opponent Kirk Franklin answers the question correctly and gets £500 and in control of the game. Although, Mancini is still 3 opponents away from winning a car because he also remains as the contestant after he called a premium-rate telephone number airing on December 21st 1993. "I'm still too high enough to know all the answers that I have never heard of," said Mancini. "I am really going to make sure if every time I must stop after I continue to go on to reach a £600,000 limit. Well, I should have said that again." Dan Mancini isn't forced to get stripped of his winnings yet due to criminal records or laws given strict limits.
