Quiz Bingo




Jimmy Savile


BBC 1, 1969 (16 shows)


Quiz Bingo was played between teams from hospitals up and down the UK. A doctor, a nurse and an administrator (you see, they had them before New Labour) were set against a similar team.

It was played against an electronic bingo board using the format now suddenly discovered in Millionaire's multiple choice questions.

Producer Cecil Korer says: "It ended after one series because I was told that the chairman was too vulgar for the BBC, and that he had no future on television. Whatever happened to Jimmy Savile?..." (It clearly did bingo-based gameshows no harm either - what about Bob's Full House some 15 years later, among others?)
