Episode 6 of 13

Paul Gambaccini chairs the latest heat of the wide-ranging music quiz, from Media City in Salford.

(6/13)
The latest heat of the eclectic music quiz comes from Salford, with Paul Gambaccini welcoming competitors from Leicestershire, Cheshire and West Yorkshire.

They'll have to demonstrate the breadth of their musical knowledge, with questions and extracts ranging from Brahms to Tippett, 60s and 70s pop and the music of war films.

As usual, Paul will also be springing a choice of musical special topics on the contestants, from which they have to pick one on which to answer their own individual questions.

The winner takes another of the places in the semi-finals next month.

Producer: Paul Bajoria.
