Going for Gold

Monday March 16 at 12:45pm on five

The new version of one of British television’s most iconic quiz shows concludes this week. Based on the popular series of the 1980s and 90s, this updated show is helmed by veteran news anchor and TV presenter John Suchet. Launched in 1987, the original ‘Going for Gold’ was presented by Henry Kelly and featured contestants from all over Europe. Over four innovative rounds, the players would answer a series of questions from a range of categories.

This time around, ‘Going for Gold’ is a live, daily quiz in which studio contestants from the UK and Ireland compete for a cash prize. The programme consists of three classic rounds – Beat-the-Buzzer, Four-in-a-Row and Head-to-Head.

For this final week, 16 daily winners from across the series return to battle for the title of ‘Going for Gold Series Champion 2009’. Each day from Mondayto Thursday, four previous winners fight for a place in Friday’s grand final. Then, in the last episode of the run, the four finalists compete to be crowned champion and scoop a £5,000 prize.

In addition to the live show there is also ‘Going for Gold Extra’, a ten-minute programme at 2.50pm each day in which a viewer at home competes for the chance to win a cash prize.
