Radio Times Centenary TV Quiz 📺




Here is a quick discussion based activity. Print off the image for the tables and ask members to find as many of the one hundred TV shows from the last centenary that they can.


Take time to discuss the TV shows, characters and places. Also discuss which were members' favourites.


You could enliven the session by playing the TV theme tunes after each one is found, or by playing comedy sketches from YouTube.



"Radio Times magazine has turned 100, and what better way to celebrate than with a head-scratching tricky quiz?! Below, you'll see a vibrant image of the BBC's Broadcasting House, but it might look a little bit different to usual.


See, look closely at the jam-packed picture and you'll find visual clues to 100 - yes, 100 - different TV and radio shows from over the past century.


Look very carefully at the image as some of the visual aids are pretty well-hidden... how many can you find?


If you need a closer look, download the image to your computer and zoom in - the clues are everywhere!"
