Paul Gambaccini tests the music knowledge of three more competitors in the fifth heat of the 2016 series.
What was the name of the record label set up by Prince in 1985? Which British composer created the Poldark TV theme music? One of the earliest successes of the late Sir Peter Maxwell Davies was a musical portrayal of which British King?
Paul Gambaccini welcomes another three amateur music lovers to the fifth heat of the 2016 Counterpoint contest, at London's Maida Vale studios. He'll be testing the breadth of their musical knowledge across the usual wide range of styles and eras. They'll also have to choose a topic on which to answer individual specialist questions, with no prior warning of the subject categories. At stake is a place in the semi-finals and a chance to go forward to the 30th anniversary Final at the BBC Proms.
Producer: Paul Bajoria.
