The world’s longest running TV sports quiz
BBC’s A Question Of Sport first aired in January 1970. Since then, more than 2,000 of the biggest names in British and international sport have appeared across over 1,000 episodes.
The cast of the sporting quiz show is comprised of a host and two captains with four celebrity guest panelists each episode. David Vine, the first presenter of A Question Of Sport, helmed seven series before being succeeded by David Coleman in 1979. Tennis champion Sue Barker took the reins in 1997.
A Question Of Sport’s first two captains were boxer Henry Cooper and Welsh rugby star Cliff Morgan. Since its debut, numerous athletes from across the sporting spectrum have been captains. Former England Rugby Union team leader Bill Beaumont and Scottish footballer Ally McCoist held the longest tenures on the show.
In 2004, former rugby player Matt Dawson, a part of England’s 2003 World Cup-winning side, replaced Frankie Dettori as team captain. Spin bowler Phil “Tuffers” Tufnell – who picked up 1,057 wickets across a long cricketing career – took over from McCoist in 2008.
As part of the hit show’s 50th anniversary celebration, A Question Of Sport teamed up with Sport Relief in early 2020 for a star-studded special, with some of the nation’s favourite comedians showing off their sporting knowledge (or lack thereof).
In autumn 2020, it was revealed that Barker, Tufnell and Dawson would step down from A Question Of Sport in 2021. It was also confirmed that the long-time host and popular team captains would hit the road from September to December 2021 for the show's biggest ever live tour.
“I cannot believe 2021 marks 24 years since I first joined A Question Of Sport and I cannot think of a better way to bring the curtain down on my time on the show than with a live tour,” said Barker. “The live shows are always hilarious, the interaction with the guests and the audience so special, we cannot wait for this.”
