Established since 1989, the Wise Old Owls are quiz and research specialists.

As well as supplying a number of independent leagues with questions, we organize & run the Wise Old Owls Yorkshire Quiz League.  The current season starts on 29th October and runs through till Spring 2004.  See our frequently asked questions page for more details.

We also supply licensed premises with traditional pub and 'fun' quizzes and assist researchers finding contestants for TV & Radio shows.  So, if you are looking to take part in or organize a league, or you require a reliable supply of questions for your pub quiz, or you happen to be a researcher looking for contestants for a quiz show, get in touch.

We have on several occasions helped television & radio stations, and allied production companies, offering advice on matters of format and putting them in touch with likely quiz show contestants.

In 1999 we supplied Yorkshire TV with 15 of the 16 individual contestants who took part in a news quiz screened on their LIVE Friday night show 'The Local'.

In 2000, we helped Bazal in their search for teams for the prime-time BBC1 show 'The Syndicate'.  A team chosen from our league, The New Inn, reached the semi-final stages of the competition, only to be beaten by the eventual winners.

Late in 2000 we were enlisted to help BBC1 find prospective contestants for 1000 to 1 - a quiz show aimed at generating interest in the year's Comic Relief appeal.

Early in 2001 we helped Radio 4 in their search for teams to take part in the new national Masterteam Challenge.

In the summer of 2001 we helped researchers working out of BBC Manchester Oxford Rd TV Studios find contestants to take part in a new series of Mastermind.
