Was the first British Quiz Show to record an edition in the former USSR with Russian contestants who could speak English. The winner won a TV set which at the time would have taken several years to earn in his own country.
The hostess Monica Rose was originally a member of the audience who was picked out because of her mad amiable personality and 'Cockney Sparrow' accent. She and Hughie's humorous double act was a firm favourite with the viewers for the length of the series.
This show was spoofed on the episode of 'Heartbeat' in which the character Philip Bellamy met his untimely end after having been shot by a man who was trying to get his ailing son out of the country to Africa.
