Episode 4 of 13

Paul Gambaccini is in the chair, as contestants from Hastings, Exeter and London have their knowledge put to the test in the wide-ranging music quiz

Where could you hear Sibelius, Ariana Grande and Cole Porter within the space of a few minutes without changing channels? Where else but Counterpoint - as Paul Gambaccini tests the range of musical knowledge of another eager trio of competitors.

Taking part today are Philip Bray, a writer and designer from Hastings; Jessica Brown, a student from Exeter; and Alan Franklin, a retired librarian from London. As always they'll be asked individual questions on a musical topic that's only revealed half way through the programme, and which they've had no chance to bone up on. But there are plenty of musical treats along the way, some familiar and some new.
