Fighting Fitz Competition - Terms and Conditions
1. The competition is open to all residents of the UK, including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, aged 16 or over, except BBC or BBC Group company employees and anyone connected with the competition. Proof of age and eligibility may be requested.
2. The competition will be played during the David FitzGerald programme on BBC Radio Devon on Monday to Friday (except when editorial requirements lead to a change in schedule or a change in programme content).
3. During programmes on Monday to Thursday there will be two rounds of the competition. Each time a question will be announced on air and listeners will be invited to call or text in with the correct answer. The entry window will be open for around 10 minutes – the opening and closing times will vary so please listen to announcements during the programme.
4. Listeners can enter:
· by calling 0808 100 1034 (calls are free from landlines and mobiles); or
· texting 81333 with the keyword DEVON followed by their answer (texts will cost your network’s standard message charge).
You may enter once per round of the competition – any additional entries via text will not be counted by will be charged. Entries made outside of the window will not count, and if made via text will be charged.
5. For each round one entrant will be selected at random from those who answered correctly, a member of the production team will call them back so they can be put live on air to play the on-air quiz.
6. Each entrant will be given 60 seconds to answer progressively harder questions. A weekly scoreboard will be kept of those who played the game on air. The highest scoring listener will play against the presenter on Friday.
7. Entrants must ensure that they are available on the telephone number provided to take the call from the production team.
