Channel 4 triumphed over BBC, ITV and Viacom with their industry knowledge at Red Bee’s annual TV Quiz yesterday, stealing the trophy – an engraved cup – from last year’s winner, BBC Studios.
Hosted by the ultimate quiz master, Mastermind icon and Today programme host, John Humphrys, the event saw leading international broadcasters including Fox, ITV, NBCUniversal, C4, BBC, Viacom and TV Licensing, battle it out in a high-level trivia skirmish. Hosted by Red Bee at the Sway cocktail bar in London, the teams were quizzed on everything from Black Mirror to Love Island.
Red Bee organised and held the TV quiz for the first time in 2017. After last year’s successful, entertaining and competitive evening, Red Bee decided to make the quiz an annual event for the industry.
Christopher Godfree, Head of Client Services at Red Bee, said: “We had a great time last night, and want to thank all the teams who competed. The TV quiz is always a fun and competitive format, and most importantly it’s a great opportunity for broadcasters and brands to network in a totally informal way. We’ll go even bigger and better next year, so watch this space.”
