4. During each show listeners will be advised to listen out for announcements regarding the opening and closing times of the giveaway. Once the phone lines are declared open for the giveaway, listeners will be invited to call the programme using the telephone numbers as detailed on air.
5. The production team will use a random generator to choose which phone line is the first answered. The first selected entrant will play ‘The Bag’, a six question quiz, on air against the presenter, following instructions given out on air. Should the first selected caller refuse to play ‘The Bag’ on-air the production team will use a random generator to choose the second phone line to be answered and a new entrant will be invited to participate.
6. For the selected entrant to win a prize they must play ‘The Bag’ on-air and against the presenter. The entrant’s final score after playing ‘The Bag’ is irrelevant. Once the selected entrant has played ‘The Bag’ on-air their details will be taken, off air, and the prize will be sent to them.
7. The prize will be a branded Paul Miller Show and local radio jute bag. Distribution of the prize will be limited to one per household. For the avoidance of doubt, the prize does not include any other costs or expenses.
8. The prize is stated as above. There is no cash alternative and the prize cannot be sold or transferred in any circumstances.
