The 90s were so dumb but so great
"På Rymmen" was a Swedish TV show about a national game of cat and mouse, with the weekly live broadcast climax being the mouse hiding in a public phone booth somewhere in the country and the cat trying to bust them live.
One of the mouse contestants were a rock duo from northern Sweden and while being hunted throughout the week they made songs about their hunters.
Once mobile phones became ubiquitous the show format was obsolete.
Apparently the format was invented in the UK and also ran in Argentina https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wanted_(game_show)
