We have provided full studio and technical support to all series of BBC One’s quiz show, Pointless.
Produced by Remarkable Television, Pointless returned to our 7,550 sq.ft. studio, Elstree 8, in May 2019 for the beginning of three recording blocks that run to mid-February 2020. The three residencies comprise daytime series 22, 23 and 24 and celebrity series 12 and 13, totalling 219 shows.
We have facilitated Pointless since its very first series, and in April 2016, the production reached its landmark 1,000th episode. When series 24 wraps in early 2020, this number will have reached 1,572.
“BBC Studioworks and Pointless have been together since the very first series. Pointless keeps coming back because of the honesty, dedication and trusted relationship we have with the Studioworks team,” John Ryan, Executive Producer.
First airing in 2009, Pointless is a ratings success in its teatime weekday BBC One slot and celebrity special weekend shows. Hosted by Alexander Armstrong, and his ‘Pointless friend’, Richard Osman, the quiz show sees four couples battle it out by answering general knowledge questions with the aim of finding the most obscure answers to score low and win big.
