A quiz show in which contestants earned money for correct answers and for how long they remained in the contest. The time was determined by an "outside event" (birth of a baby, arrival of a train, etc.) which was followed by remote camera. The audience knew what the event was, but the contestant did not. Contestants could choose to leave with their winnings or risk loosing everything once the event occurred. Written by
