The show's format is that contestants must answer questions on General Knowledge followed by a specialist subject of their choice.

What is the prize for winning Mastermind?

Previous winners have gone on to become minor celebrities such as London cabbie Fred Housego who won in 1980.

The highest ever score was obtained by Kevin Ashman in 1995 who got 41 points with his specialist subject The Life of Martin Luther King.

He went on to star as a panellist on The Eggheads and has also been a question setter for the Radio 4 quiz show Brain of Britain.
