The grand final of the 2016 contest comes from the BBC Proms, with Paul Gambaccini asking the questions and awarding the 30th annual Counterpoint trophy to the winner.
Paul Gambaccini hosts the grand Final of the 2016 Counterpoint tournament. The three competitors who've won both heats and semi-finals now face the final hurdle, with the winner becoming the 30th BBC Counterpoint champion. Little did the programme's originators suspect in 1986 that the quiz would still be in full swing on Radio 4 thirty years on.
The programme was recorded as a fringe event at the 2016 BBC Proms, and a lively Proms audience is on hand to enjoy the tension and to encourage this year's Finalists.
As always, the Counterpoint champion will have to display a range of knowledge that puts most of us to shame, from the core classical repertoire to film scores, world music, jazz, show tunes and the best of rock and pop music over the past fifty years.
Producer: Paul Bajoria.
