Hello and welcome to Radio Rhymington's pub quiz challenge Friday
As you all know, every Friday evening Radio Rhymington invites two teams from pubs across the country to compete in our pub quiz
challenge championship. The show has been broadcast every Friday evening between 10 and 10.45 for the last six years. Now it is one of
the most popular quizzes on radio. Last year 1,000,000 people listened to quiz master Jerry Warman asking the questions to the two teams in
Tonight's question categories are:
Pop trivia - this is where we test the teams about the lives and music of pop singers of today. If you've got a pop fan in your pub this is
the question category for them.
Our next category is world geography. If you know the name of the second biggest city in New Zealand or where to find the world's second
highest mountain this is where you're going to score your points.
British sport is for the sports specialists. When did he England last beat the West Indies at cricket and when were Wales rugby champions?
Who came second in the football league last year? If you know the answers to questions like this, then this is the category you should
Do you know what HDTV stands for? What year that man last landed on the moon? If all these questions seem really easy to you, then science
and technology is the category for you.
Or maybe you think that your team should choose history. This is a big category, because its not just British history, but world history. So
if you don't know who Ghengis Kahn was, or which country Catherine the Great ruled, you had better avoid this one.
And finally, in the I'm feeling lucky category we have the other categories that we are not using this week. That's another half a
dozen categories including show business, literature, and current affairs - if you are feeling lucky you could get just the right
question from one of these.
Now, for those who have not listened to the show before, here are the rules. Each team has five members, and they have a minute to answer
each question. A correct answer gets them ten points, a wrong answer loses them five points. If they don't answer they don't win any
points, but they don't lose any either.
The opposing team chooses the first category, and if the other team answers a question in that category, they get to choose the next
category for themselves. If they answer correctly, the opposing team chooses another category, and so on, till the team get a question that
they can't answer, or they answer wrongly. Then it's the other team's turn.
I also want to tell you that we are looking for contestants in next year's challenge, so if your pub has a bunch of genuises waiting for
the chance to show how bright they are, get in touch with us at Radio Rhymington tel no 976 10554 that's 976 10554 (all calls charged at 25p
All right then - lets start this week's contest!
