Al Fresco for S4C, 17th August 2008 - present


When this debuted, it had been a while since S4C last produced a prime time quiz show. This attempt pairs up a long-standing presenter of S4C's European football show Sgorio (Jones) with a famed and dare we say, patronising Welsh language tutor (Parry) to introduce this travel-oriented format.

Sixteen studio contestants answer questions on Wales with four moving onto a round about a different country. The other twelve competitors carry on taking part, hoping to replace the worst performing of the four at the end of every round. Winning a round will win the contestant £1,000 (£500 for coming 2nd, £250 for coming 3rd, not a dime for coming last) - winning every round guarantees a jackpot of £5,000 (something which sounds unlikely to happen). Only the winning studio competitor will win any money.

The studio winner then takes on an expat Walian, taking part from wherever in the world they happen to be. A win for the studio-bound champion wins a holiday but if the expat wins, they get on the first flight home to Wales to visit family and friends (although surely, they could book a flight themselves).

This hour-long format on Friday nights appears to have held its own - although by the 2010 series, Morgan Jones was presenting on his own (not a bad change considering Nia Parry's minimal role in the show - pacing up and down a walkway while he asks the questions), the show had been truncated to 30 minutes and it was occupying a teatime slot on four nights a week.

Still, better than Tipit.
