The Great History Quiz

The Great History Quiz Logo

Hosted by Kirsty Young, this new quiz show gives viewers the chance to pit their wits against some of the country’s most respected historians. Between them, they’ve racked up 16 university degrees, published 18 books and contributed to more than 200 hours of television. This hour-long special is dedicated to that notorious dynasty the Tudors, who ruled the country from 1485 to 1603 and changed the face of British history forever.

Across seven fascinating and challenging rounds The Great History Quiz will bring the kings, queens, courtiers, noblemen and women, sailors and discoverers, heroes and villains, playwrights and poets, rogues and vagabonds who helped shape this extraordinary period back to life.

Kinetic Pixel supplied scoring and buzzer systems, along with tight integration with lighting for control of screen content played out from a Green Hippo Hippotizer for clocks, scores and question marking.
