Take Your Pick

Show Summary

Take Your Pick was initially broadcast by Radio Luxembourg in the early 1950s. This UK game show was then aired on television from 1955 till 1968. Later on, the program was again picked up in February 1992, and was broadcast till August 1998. Take Your Pick was the first program in the UK commercial television industry to offer cash prizes to the winners. The show included the 'Yes-No Interlude' in which participants had to answer a number of questions without using the words yes and no, and the contestants would win monetary prizes based on their answers. At the end of the show, contestants were given the choice of either taking home the prize money they had won or they could take a chance and open the box with the surprise. The box usually contained grand prizes such as a washing machine or a holiday package, but sometimes it contained trivial prizes such as bag of sweets or candies or a mousetrap.
