Nigel Rees chairs the popular quiz involving the exchange of quotations and anecdotes.
1: With guests Sir Richard Eyre, Ken Follett, Bonnie Greer and John Simpson.
Quote... Unquote is a panel game broadcast on BBC Radio 4 based on quotations. Every episode since the beginning of the series in 1976 has been chaired by its inventor, Nigel Rees.
The main part of the programme consists of a just-for-fun quiz where the chairman asks each of the four panellists in turn to identify where a certain quotation, phrase or saying comes from. In between these rounds, the panellists are asked to share some of their favourite quotations on a specified theme. Other parts of the programme are devoted to answering listeners' queries about the sources of quotations and the origins of everyday phrases and idioms.
The programme uses voice-over artists to read the quotations. In recent years the main reader was William Franklyn (who died in 2006) and now is Peter Jefferson.
