The Questionable History of TV Quiz Show

One of television's most successful creations is the quiz show – the programme where everyone can show how clever they are and possibly earn a small fortune in the process. But where did it all begin? Which shows have been the most successful? And who, along the way, have been the winners, losers and – perhaps most intriguingly – the cheaters?

Jeff's fully illustrated, entertaining talk covers the whole colourful history of the TV quiz show from its earliest days in the 1930s to today, showing how the format developed, celebrating the good, the bad and the ugly, and unearthing some very dodgy dealing along the way.

How could a copy of the Radio Times have helped you win a handkerchief? Which reality show judge once won a set of kitchen utensils on a quiz show? Which dame of British theatre was once a quiz show hostess?

Expect lots of warm memories, plenty of surprises and lots of 'I didn't know that' moments in this 45–60-minute talk, which is also available via Zoom.
