Calendar Countdown[26/04/82] (1982)

Film details


A quiz to launch Channel Four. COUNTDOWN combines entertainment and intellectual tease as it juggles letters, numbers, anagrams and sums. Contestants compete against the clock and against former BRAIN OF BRITAIN star, farmer Ted Moult and his team of statisticians and wordsmiths. It is lighthearted but educational as Ted tells us about the origin of certain words.
