j RICH QUIZ
ÍnnV surprise of the year is the choice of pop
singer Dig Richards as compere of a new quiz show, the richest children's quiz in the history of Australian TV - the Ampol Stamp Quiz.
The quiz, for children between ll and 13, is on general knowledge and has its Australian premiere on TCN9 on Friday, October 23, at 4.30 p.m.
i| Prizes worth up to £2000 will be offered in each i¡ weekly show for 13 weeks. Half the prizes wil.1 be for ;! contestants on camera, but the other half are for child ; ¡ viewers at home, who can also be in the quiz.
\[ Each State has eliminating contests for a champion
to contest the grand final, with a prize of a trip to !| Disneyland with a parent.
¡i The prizes are very adult - they include big, beauti ¡1 ful cars in which the parents can drive the lucky ¡I winner till he reaches 17 and can drive himself.
I; I am told that the contestants (there will be 16 from !; every State) have quite awesome knowledge.
? ! I can't help thinking of the Ampol Stamp Quiz's i| adult counterpart - Bob Dyer's BP Pick-a-Box quiz. '! Dig even has a "Dolly" to hostess the quiz, none other ; 1 than Little Pattie - minus her stompy wompy real ¡i gone surfer boy.
