Amoebas to Zebras



Paul Ross (non-broadcast pilot)

Nigel Rees


TSW (regional), 5 March 1986 to 19 February 1987 (12 episodes in 2 series)


Natural history quiz. Graffiti-recordist Nigel Rees posed animal questions to two 2-player teams, if memory serves. Most memorable feature - tree-like game board where each team would evolve from the primeval soup into more complex beings further up the tree for each right answer. The apex of the tree was a Zebra, not homo sapiens, because who's ever heard of a quiz show called "Amoebas to Humans"?


Taglined as A Natural History Quiz (according to the titles).

On the podcast Fingers on Buzzers, Paul Ross revealed that he did a pilot of this show. Strangely, he seemed to be unaware that a full series ever made it to air.
