#1
The BSNL Sports Quiz, broadcast by Doordarshan's
Podhigai channel, has entered the Limca Book of records as the longest running weekly
quiz show on television in India.

Started in 2002, the show has on an average received calls from more than 30,000 viewers and also 3,000 e-mails per show, Sumanth C Raman, host of the show, told reporters last night.

Apart from an e-mail contest, a live SMS contest is also conducted every week, in which more than 2,000 viewers participate on an average, Raman said.

He claimed that apart from viewers in Indian cities, people from China, Latvia, Oman, Dubai and Saudi Arabia have also participated in the programme.

The show began in June 2002 with the FIFA World Cup in mind and completed 373 episodes on July 18, he said.

He attributed the success of the show to the programming and engineering team, who efficiently handled each episode.

P S Parameswaran, Programme Executive at DD Chennai, who mooted the idea, said he plans to complete 1000 episodes of the show.
