Quiz Bowl



Will Buckley


Hawkshead for Channel 4, 22 November 1991 to 14? February 1992 (13 programmes in 1 series)


Sort of remake of Quiz Ball but with an American Football flavo("u")r. Teams of sports journalists from two papers answered sporting questions of varying difficulty to earn "yardage" (as we remember questions were worth 10, 30, 50 or a monster 70 yards) with the ultimate goal of scoring "touchdowns". There were other rules converted into quiz form as well but we don't remember them.

It had quite a neat computerised American football field between the teams - kind of a small video wall in an arcade table box - to show where the ball was at any point.
