Bumper Quiz for 'BBC 100th Anniversary' ūüé• 18th October 2022



This CST quiz based activity page celebrates the place of the 'British Broadcasting Corporation' in our lives.


It's been 100 years of this magnificent institution, so there are 100 questions, although you can break the session into several parts if you wish.


After each round of 10 questions there is a reminiscence discussion point and a song break.


I really hope you enjoy this one and would love to hear how it has worked in practice.


As usual, if you click on the first image, a slide show will open.


Make sure to allow time for discussion, reminiscence and story-telling. And singalongs, of course.


Give clues to help achievement, such as first names.
