David Sheppard's Yes/No Game: Terms and Conditions
1. Entry is open to all UK residents (including Channel Islands and the Isle of Man), except BBC employees or those of its affiliates and their close relatives or any person connected to the competition. Proof of age, identity and eligibility may be requested.
2. The competition will be played up to every weekday during David Sheppard (1500 to 1700) from 1st August 2013 (except when editorial requirements lead to a change in schedule or a change in programme content).
3. During the show a question will be asked and listeners will be invited to enter the competition, and answer the question, by:
• calling the number: 0845 3011034. Calls cost up to 5p/min from most landlines (an additional connection fee may also apply). Calls from mobiles may cost considerably more.
No other method of entry will be accepted. Only one entry is allowed per listener per episode of the competition (per day). Callers under 16 years of age will need the permission of a parent or guardian to enter.
4. Entry is only open during the times announced on-air. Entries received outside these times will not be registered. The opening and closing times may change so please listen to announcements during the show.
5. When listeners telephone to enter, a member of the production team will ask them their name, location and a contact telephone number. Callers will not be asked for their answer during any off-air call with the production team.
7. The first caller to get through to the production team will be given the opportunity to go on-air and withstand 60 seconds of conversation without using the words ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. If the caller lasts the 60 seconds they will be given the chance to give their answer to the question. If their answer is correct, they will win a prize and no other callers will be placed on-air or win any prize. If the caller uses the words ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, or if the wrong answer is given, the second caller will be given the opportunity to go on-air. It is hoped there will be at least three (3) callers per show. If no caller survives and/or gives the correct answer, the prize will roll over to the next time the competition is run using the same question.
8. Listeners taking part in the on-air competition must ensure that they are available on the telephone number provided to take the call from the production team. If an entrant is not available after reasonable attempts by the production team, another entrant will be selected.
9. The BBC reserves the right to take any contestant off-air and disqualify them from the competition at any time if they display offensive, abusive or any other kind of unsuitable behaviour.
10. Prizes will be announced on-air during the show. Prizes will consist of items such as books, DVDs or toys.
11. There is no cash alternative and the prize cannot be sold or transferred in any circumstances.
12. Winners are not permitted to re-enter the competition for a period of 6 weeks.
13. Entrants must agree to take part in any post-competition publicity if required.
14. The BBC’s decision as to prizes awarded is final. No correspondence relating to the quiz will be entered into.
15. The BBC reserves the right to: (i) amend these terms and conditions including, but not limited to, the competition opening and closing times; (ii) disqualify any entrant who breaches the rules or has acted fraudulently in any way; (iii) where applicable, withdraw or substitute any prize, at any stage, should any winner or their guest exhibit inappropriate or dangerous behaviour (including, but not limited to being under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs or chemical substances or causing a nuisance) while attending BBC premises or where the prize includes attendance to an event and; (iv) impose any additional entry restrictions or requirements should the prize being offered require such restrictions or requirements (including but not limited to tickets for events with an age minimum).
16. The BBC reserves the right to substitute the use of a different question if it becomes clear (in its sole discretion) that the question may not be answered in a reasonable time. Further, the BBC reserves to right to reset the competition (e.g. after many unsuccessful rounds), for editorial reasons. In any event the BBC reserves the right to cancel the competition, at any stage, if in its opinion it is deemed necessary, for editorial reasons or if circumstances arise outside its control.
