Masterteam was a general knowledge quiz presented by Angela Rippon. It ran from 1985 to 1987.
I don't think that you could ever hear a more appropriate theme if you tried! The theme music creates the perfect tension level for the ultimate test of specialist and general knowledge which was part of BBC1's Sunday evening schedule for many years. Here Magnus Magnusson, who hosted the programme during its 25-year long run on BBC1 - 1972 to 1997 - introduces the 1979 final.
After six years away from BBC Television, Mastermind returned to BBC2 in 2003 with John Humphreys as quizmaster. Originally the show was filmed in different locations every week, until the BBC decided to record all shows at Oxford Road in Manchester.
Same format, same tough questions, younger contestants! John Humphreys is your question master again in both clips.
