Twenty Questions (Series) (1961-1962)

Aka: 20 Questions

Twenty Questions started as a local game show out of CJAY-TV in Winnipeg in March of 1961. By May, it was also being seen in Montreal and Ottawa. By fall, the show was renamed to 20 Questions and became the first CTV network series to be produced in Winnipeg.

This was a Canadian version of the popular American panel game show and aired for one season on CTV. Host Stewart MacPherson had been host for 16 years on a similar program in Britain. In June, 1961, he went to London for three weeks to videotape 26 shows of 20 Questions for the ITC television network there.
