Quiz Bingo




Jimmy Savile


BBC1, 1 January to 9 April 1969 (15 episodes in 1 series)


Quiz Bingo was played between teams from hospitals up and down the UK. A doctor, a nurse and an administrator (you see, they had them before New Labour) were set against a similar team.

It was played against an electronic bingo board using the format subsequently "discovered" in Millionaire's multiple choice questions. There was also a tactical element as (sketchily) described in the billings: "Viewers will be able to see how highly intelligent hospital staff deliberately give wrong answers in the hope that their colleagues can pick up the points needed for a bingo and the bonus of fifty it carries. As Jimmy Savile says each time: 'It's the gamesmanship that counts.'"
