Gee, this quality format only lasted a series and was only broadcast in the South and South East. They couldn't make anymore because Southern Television was about to lose their franchise - an announcement they made the year beforehand. So, why they persisted on going ahead with this, we'll never know.

Host

Bernard Manning

Co-hosts

Charles Collingwood

Broadcast

Southern for ITV, 18 July to 19 August 1981 (10 episodes in 1 series)

Synopsis

Bernard Manning presenting a quiz show? What on earth were they thinking? In fact, the quiz proper was hosted by Charles Collingwood (later to be a sidekick of Noel's Telly Addicts for a couple of series).

Collingwood asked questions while Manning made his usual hilarious gags, and they had a prize of a Bernard Under Manning award, which had the acronym of... oh, dear.

Gee, this quality format only lasted one series. They couldn't make anymore because Southern Television was about to lose their franchise - an announcement they made the year beforehand. So, why they persisted on going ahead with this, we'll never know.

Inventor

It was based on the Groucho Marx format You Bet Your Life.
