Classic TV Theme Recognition Quiz 📺 Part 2



This short quiz is based on musical memory and TV theme recognition.


Play the TV theme tunes in order and ask members to guess what each show is. There is a picture and a question for each show, if you want to make it more interactive. You might also want to break it up with some YouTube clips.


(Another way of approaching the quiz, might be to print off the collages and have members match the TV theme to the picture?)


Take time to talk about the TV shows. Which of them are or were members' favourites?


Hope this works well in practice. Please do let me know.
