Pop Quiz was one of UK television's most popular quiz programmes with a regular audience of ten million viewers. Excluding Top of the Pops, it was the most watched music programme between 1981 and 1984.

Many of us remember seeing rare archive music clips for the first time on early editions of the show. Although every episode of Pop Quiz exists in the BBC archives, most of the episodes have never been properly catalogued. There have been claims that some episodes contain clips of musical performances that are now missing. In 2011 I made it my mission to track down and catalogue every episode of this classic show.

Fast forward ten years and my original objective has been completed! This section of the website now includes screenshots from all 59 episodes. In February 2021 Pop Quiz was finally catalogued in full!
