It's the norm is for quizzes of this ilk to take place at the time of year stipulated on the tin, particularly when the BBC4 repeats have operated on a yearly basis. However, thanks to the channels 2016 policy of putting two into one, an 'end of year' quiz in the middle of June may well have seemed a slightly awkward occasion to have one. Legs & Co's final watered down appearances were transmitted way back in May but with One For The Dads ensuring the dance troupe remains present and correct in our collective memories (surely something must have sunken in!), all are invited to put those memories to the test in an 'end of year' quiz which will take place at the beginning of the year.
With Sunday being the traditional day for quizzes and not one single question having been devised in time for Sunday 18th December - 9pm on Christmas Night was definitely a nono - a quiz based on the life and times of Legs & Co. in 1981 will take place on
New Years Day at 9pm (GMT)
The quiz will consist of 40-odd questions (some of them really are odd), asked in pairs within periods no more than 5 minutes apart with a points system yet to be devised (but possibly 2 points for the first correct answer and 1 for all those who copy and paste the correct answer).
Intended be neither University Challenge nor The Chase in terms of competitiveness, the intention is for a frivolous hour or so looking back on the final year of Legs & Co. on and away from Top Of The Pops (which barely extends beyond Tenko).
Let's see how we do as we see ease our way into 2017.
