The W Three Show - 1980 Final

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1980 Children Quiz Show

Start video player

I competed on the show in 1986, which was the last year it was broadcast (I think). Our quiz master was Peter Hawes. I won two heats, then lost the regional (CHCH) final to a kid who went on to the national final and won. My prizes were a bit lame by today's standards: a big digital watch and a chunky digital alarm clock. Aaaaand I managed to top the "nerd" status by slapping myself in the face when missing an easy question. Yep, good way to earn cool points (not).

I'm looking for the piano sheet music from the show theme. Can anyone help me there?

Enjoyed this show as a kid. Some of those questions were really hard--how many Intermediate kids knew Latin phrases and Shakespeare's plays?
Even less would know today…
The show was low-key but entertaining all the same, not like the totally over the top quiz shows we get today. Thanks for sharing this.

This show was awesome - I still have my Oxford Concise Dictionary signed by Selwyn Toogood from December 1983.

Nice little show! I enjoyed directing the 1981 series, a pleasure to work with Relda... and Lockwood... and Max.
