It's Academic - Orgasm Blooper

Television (Excerpts) – 1981

Sarah from Onehunga High School makes an innocent verbal gaffe in this short clip from 1981 quiz show It's Academic. Quiz master Lockwood Smith graciously judges her answer to be correct — although teammate Lewis's side eye and grin provides an extra layer of comedy. The excerpt ends with a comment from ex kids' TV host Andrew Shaw, as he presents the clip on compendium show New Zealand's Greatest Bloopers - Oops. Lockwood Smith also hosted The W Three Show, a similar quiz format for intermediate-aged students. Later he became a National MP and Speaker of the House.

Which word beginning with "o" is the general term for any living creature or plant?
– The question that started it all
