Children's game show in which teams answered general knowledge questions in order to bank time to use in a physical challenge at the end of the show. For example, the time banked is used for two of the children to throw hoops over a pole, and whichever team has the most hoops wins.

The format was revived by HTV Wales in 1998 under the name Playing For Time. It was broadcast in the old 5:10pm slot on Tuesdays in between CITV and ITN's early evening news, it was usually repeated on Saturday teatime afternoons at 12:30pm after CD:UK. It only lasted one series and the ITC said "the programmes lacked pace and the studio atmosphere would have benefited from the presence of a lively young audience".
