|A collection of pieces
concerning the phenomena we know as 'The Quiz'.
Rather than simply tell visitors what the Wise Old Owls are
about, we want to document here something of the history of quizzes and
quiz competitions and to record some of the more interesting facts about
this most fact-obsessed of leisure activities.
In the left margin and at the foot of this page you will find links to
our first three articles. I urge you to peruse them since they each
offer something of interest and, in their own small way, offer an insight
into the Quiz phenomenon.
Lastly, while the history of TV & Radio quizzes is an enormous
subject (just cataloging all the shows to have aired would be a major
undertaking in itself), a small start has been made with our pieces
concerning '15 to 1' and 'The
Local'. And in our News section, you
can read how one of our leading teams carved out a little piece of TV
history on 'The Syndicate'.
