Watch A Question of Sport on UK BBC TV
BBC Television Provide UK Web Users with Free Coverage of a Question of Sport on BBC iPlayer.
A Question of Sport began in December 1968 and is still running today. It sees two teams of sporting heroes answering questions about their own sport (“I’ll go home”) or taking a chance and answering a question about a sport which they are not involved in (“I’ll go away”). Each team has a resident captain and two other panel members.
The BBC show is the longest continuously running game show aired in Britain. It is recorded at Media City in Manchester.
When the show was first broadcast across the nation it was hosted for eight years by David Vine. The prime position was then taken over by David Coleman, a former BBC sports commentator. Ex-tennis star Sue Barker took over when he decided to retire, and she remains in the hot seat today.
There have been a number of team captains on the show, including Fred Trueman, the boxer Henry Cooper and Emlyn Hughes, the latter famously pitting his sporting knowledge against rival captain Bill Beaumont.
Currently, the captains are Matt Dawson and Phil Tuffnell. Former snooker player Steve Davis has the record for appearing the most on the show.
The show has also attracted royalty. Princess Anne appeared in 1987 as a member of Emlyn Hughes’ team and her daughter Zara Phillips has also taken part.
A Question of Sport has a popular format and features a number of rounds including the Action Round, Picture Board, and Mystery Guest – a popular part of the show which sees teams having to identify a sports personality filmed in unfamiliar surroundings.
