TV Series
    (September 11, 1972- )
    Aired on the BBC (1972-97), Discovery Channel (2001) and BBC2 (2002- )
    Hosted by Magnus Magnusson (1972-97), Clive Anderson (2001) and John Humphrys (2002- )
    Premise: Four contests answer two rounds of questions, one in a specialized subject chosen by the contestant, one in general knowledge
    Show creator Bill Wright said he was inspired by his experience being interrogated by the Gestapo during World War II.
    Contestants had to answer difficult questions, but only won a glass bowl instead of cash.
    Its big catchphrase was 'I've started, so I'll finish,' uttered by the host if time ran out in the middle of a question.
    It aired a special edition in which all four contestants' special topic was Dr. Who.
    It was originally aired late at night because it was considered 'too highbrow,' but it became a surprise hit when it was moved to prime time as an emergency replacement show.
    It had memorably ominous theme music.
    It inspired numerous parodies by British comedians, such as a Monty Python spoof with Terry Gilliam as a contestant whose specialty is 'questions to which the answer is two.'
