Junior Criss Cross Quiz
Jeremy Hawk (original host)
Granada for ITV, 13 November 1957 to 29 June 1967
Children's version of Criss Cross Quiz, played similarly but with hobby-related prizes instead of the cash prizes of the adult version.
You wouldn't get away with that nowadays: On occasion the show awarded live animals as prizes. Budgies, fish and even a pedigree dog were all given away in the first year.
Jeremy Purser - a kind of junior Ken Jennings - won consecutive matches for months until they made him retire in the Ian Lygo stylee.
Questions were edited and verified by Newnes' Pictorial Knowledge.
