A long-running series in which members of the public sit in a black chair to answer questions on a specialist subject and general knowledge.
Did You Know?
Some of the show's 1996 editions were screened back-to-back with a very different show Small Talk
(1996). For this, the BBC produced a well-know trailer referencing both shows. Magnus's voice would be heard saying, "May I have our first contender, please?" and a little boy would appear and announce, "My name's Jamie, I'm six years old and I'm a genius". Magnus would then ask, "Occupation?" and a little girl would say, "I can do a magic trick - watch!" (This 'trick' was putting a pencil on her top lip as a moustache - and the pencil duly fell off, surprise, surprise!) Finally, Magnus would ask, "And your chosen specialised subject?" and a rather serious little boy would say, "Er - I'm not sure about that question" See more
