A Question of Sport is a British television sports quiz show produced and broadcast by the BBC. It is the "world's longest running TV sports quiz".[1] Following a pilot episode in December 1968, broadcast only in the north of England, the series has run continuously since 1970 (except 1973 and 1978) and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. It is currently presented by Sue Barker with team captains Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell, but they are all leaving the series in 2021 with a new line-up yet to be announced.[2]
