New Quiz Kids, The (Series) (1978-1979)

The hunt was on for brilliant Canadian children, aged between six and 14, for a television version of radio's old Quiz Kids series. Each young genius had to be an expert in some field or other. Located were: an 8-year-old anatomist, a 5-year-old dinosaur whiz, pre-teeners who wrote their own computer language and a 14-year-old who had completed a first-year university math course. Several hundred potential candidates had been interviewed.

Five students competed in each of the 26 episodes, with the top three earning the right to continue.
