Mastermind International - 1982

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1982

In 1981 Kiwi David Harvey won Mastermind International in Sydney. The next year producer Max Cryer persuaded the BBC to hold this TV special in New Zealand. The Christchurch Town Hall is packed as finalists from Canada, Australia, NZ, Ireland and the United Kingdom take turns in the famous chair to face two rounds of questions from unflappable quiz master Peter Sinclair. The first round sees impressive mastery of Irish history by Desmond O'Leary, but the general knowledge round proves the decider. Ex champion Harvey is on hand to present the trophy (carved by Hepi Maxwell) to the new mastermind.

From the volume of applause in the Christchurch Town Hall it's quite evident who the winner is...
