A typically British quiz show
11 September 2006 | by Larry_HimeSee all my reviews

A typically British show that has been running over 36 years but still manages to pull in decent viewing figures. Many team captains have come and gone during the years but the programme's successful format hasn't changed too much.

However, changing times have been reflected in recent years in the saucy banter between hostess Sue Barker and latest team captains, Matt Dawson and Ally McCoist. AQoS is less serious than in its early days but none the worse for that.

It's a real shame that the recording of the very first episode, a real piece of television history, has been lost by the BBC. Broadcast on Jan 5 1970, that episode was tinged with tragedy as the only female panelist, champion athlete Lillian Board, was to die of cancer later that year, aged only 22.
