The radio replacement for Sporting Chance was a general knowledge quiz, in which the panel toured seaside resorts, trying to beat the local brainboxes. After 1967, the seaside theme was dropped and the series toured universities instead. Forces Chance was the same format, but travelled internationally to pit the resident panel against members of the armed forces. The title referred to the fact that there were three styles of question: ordinary Q&A, true or false, and spelling.
