Mastermind - 1990 Final

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1990

In the grand final of the fifteenth and penultimate series of TVNZ's premier quiz show, host Peter Sinclair grills contestants on general knowledge and a specialist subject: the life and works of AA Milne and David Bowie, TV's Fawlty Towers and battleships since 1906. First prize is a 14-day trip to London and the coveted chair. Contestants include the year's youngest entrant: Wheel of Fortune winner and future film critic, sports historian and writer Hamish McDouall. The show's first champion, 1976 winner Patrick Bowles, presents the prizes.

The vulgarity of an intellectual horse race and the good taste of highly specialised questions about esoteric subjects.
– Writer Tony Reid in The Listener, 21 November 1981
