Paul Gambaccini welcomes the first three competitors in the 2018 series of the wide-ranging music quiz.
The quest for the 32nd BBC Counterpoint champion gets under way, as Paul Gambaccini welcomes the first three competitors of the 2018 season. One of them will win a place in the semi-finals and stands a chance of going all the way to the title. To do so they'll have to prove the breadth of their musical knowledge and field Paul's questions on everything from opera to R&B.
The quiz includes the fiendish special subject round, where the competitors choose a musical topic on which to answer questions without having had any chance to prepare.
Taking part in the first contest of the series are:
Trevor Collins, a retired textile designer from London
Michael Dale, an events organiser and festival director living in Glasgow
Emma Raczkowski, a marketing manager from London.
Producer: Paul Bajoria.
