On the first week of December, the TV industry’s top talent – both old and new – ushered in the festive season with RTS Futures’ 2016 Christmas Quiz.
The London Studios on the Southbank were dutifully decked out as nine teams, headed by some of the industry’s finest execs (including Channel 5’s Ben Frow and ITV’s Michael Kelpie), battled for top spot in the ultimate quiz of TV trivia.
TOWIE’s finest, Mark Wright, served as quizmaster and challenged the teams to questions from a range of themes, including the previous week’s television (“what was the theme of the most recent Strictly…?”); nostalgic shows (“who narrated Rhubarb & Custard?”) and potshots at the guest commissioners (“which broadcaster treated audiences to an afternoon of Christmas films…in August?”).
After a nail-biting six rounds, and an ever-shifting league table, Team Channel 5 were crowned the victors. Lumina, partnering up with Team Endemol Shine, came in a respectable fifth place (there’s always next year…)
Great fun as always – we are thankful once again to the RTS Futures team for another wonderful event. No better way to kick off the Christmas Countdown.
