Quiz of the Week



Ned Sherrin


BBC1, 5 July 1969 to 15 August 1970 (2 series)

BBC2, 21 December 1979 to 12 December 1980 (8 episodes, as part of Friday Night... Saturday Morning)


Topical comedy quiz played by two teams of three, essentially Have I Got News for You before its time. In its original form it got a little bit too irreverent for BBC1's then controller, Paul Fox, who axed it abruptly in what should have been the middle of the second series. Some years later, Ned Sherrin revived it as part of his Friday Night... Saturday Morning late-night talk show.
