Noddy Holder hosts RTS Midlands Big Telly Quiz


By RTS (Royal Television Society), Tuesday, 13th March 2018:


"A fantastic 140 people attended the first ever RTS Midlands “Big telly quiz” night in early March at the Malmaison hotel in Birmingham.


Hosted by Slade star and local living legend, Noddy Holder, the teams were put to the test on all things “telly” – and, as an extra treat, BBC WM’s Richie Anderson fronted the interval game.


“The Radio Brainwaves”, a team from BBC Radio claimed the top spot, beating other teams from the BBC, Central News, members of the Doctors cast and The Producers’ Forum, as well as independent production companies such as North One and Full Fat Television.

Caren Davies, RTS Midlands Chair said: “It was a brilliant evening – the room was packed to the rafters, the atmosphere was electric and the quiz gave us the opportunity to bring the Midlands broadcasting industry together. The result was a very special night.”
