Day Therapy Unit Quiz Week 15 – 15th July

Answers below

Hello Quizzers , preparing for this weeks ‘challenge’, delved in to the old grey matter and remembered another classic from yesteryear……Top of the Form which ran from 1962 until 1975.  The programme had contestants from Grammar schools throughout the UK and our own Paisley Grammar, got through to the finals in 1976.  The quiz first ran on the radio and it was 1962 that it hit BBC 1.  In the late 70’s, a few International editions took place with the Host being Paddy Feeny (a presenter on Science programmes) but you may recall the early presenter being Geoffrey Wheeler with his assistant Mary Craig.  As Michael Caine once said ‘Not a lot of people know that’ and the fact is that Hugh Grant was once a contestant!   Best of luck with this weeks quiz and no Googling!!
