The Book Quiz
New series. Kirsty Wark chairs the quiz that aims to find out who knows their Chaucer from their chick lit and their Wuthering Heights from their Malory Towers.
Teams of celebrities drawn from the world of literature, journalism and politics do battle over seven testing rounds. They'll be asked to name famous novels from extracts alone, or identify authors from recordings of them reading their own works. They'll also have to decipher which books are being referred to in a series of fiendishly cunning clues.
Perhaps the biggest challenge facing them is naming as many titles from a specific author as they can in 30 seconds - it might be the Odes of John Keats or the novels of Ernest Hemingway. But no matter how well or how badly either team has done, everything can change in the quick-fire head-to-head final round.
Each week this light-hearted test of literary know-how sees two teams of two players fighting for a spot in the semi-finals and then, after seven weeks, victory in the grand final. And as befitting such book lovers, aside from the glory of winning, the prize on offer for the series champions is a fine edition of one of their favourite books.
