A long-running series in which members of the public sit in a black chair to answer questions on a specialist subject and general knowledge.
Did You Know?
The idea for the show comes from the experiences of the producer Bill Wright
when he was a Prisoner of War during WWII. He was often asked for his "Name", "Rank" and "Number" (the only information he was obliged to give under the Geneva Convention). He decided to change this to "Name", "Occupation" and "Specialised Subject". This is why the show is so dark, and why the question-master was originally the interrogator. See more
