The Tournament for BBC One



QITV have been awarded a new commission from the BBC’s daytime quiz tender, following a six month process that began with 30 entertainment producers.


In the ultimate knockout quiz, eight players do battle on the Tournament Run in a series of exciting tug-of-war quiz matches as they attempt to knock their opponents out of the game and steal their cash. Only one player will be left standing at the end, but can they make it all the way to the Golden Run to double their money? Hosted by Alex Scott.


BBC head of daytime and early peak Carla-Maria Lawson described the show as a “stand out format in a competitive field” that "combines distinctive edge-of-seat game play with a plethora of general knowledge to satisfy viewers who love to play along at home."


Series 1 comprises of 25 episodes, airing daily on BBC One at 2.15pm between 8th November and 10th December 2021
