Mastermind tv show: Mastermind is a British game show from the UK famous for its tough questions, intimidating environment, and serious tone.
Created by Bill Wright, the basic structure that is used in Mastermind has not changed in any way. Four contestants are required, and later, five or six contestants are required to complete two rounds that focus on a particular topic of the contestant’s choosing, while the other is one is a basic knowledge round. Wright was inspired by his experiences being interrogated by Gestapo throughout World War II.
The mood is enhanced with the atmosphere created by Mastermind’s famously terrifying theme song, “Approaching Menace,” by the British composer Neil Richardson. The program was originally created with the recording studios in Manchester at studios like New Broadcasting House and Granada Studios before moving into MediaCityUK in 2011.
For the first round, the questioner invites the initial participant to start. The contestant walks to a chair in black and then sits down. The contestant then gets the time period generally about two hours (one minute and a half for semi-finals and similarly in the following) in which to respond to questions about a topic that he or she chooses (see examples below). The person who asks the question announces the start of the timer and is then asked a question. If the contestant provides correctly, he/she earns one point, and the questioner reads another question. Contestants can fail (by simply declaring “pass”) if he does not know the answer or would rather not take the time to think about the correct answer. The questioner doesn’t start reading questions until the participant has provided an answer or has said “pass.” If an answer is not correct or incorrect, the questioner will then give the correct answer prior to reading the next question. This takes up some contestants’ time. If the contestant fails the test, the questioner will move on to the next question. The answer is not revealed until the conclusion of the round.
When the two minutes have been over, a buzzer sounds and consists of 4 beeps. If by the time the buzzer goes off, it is because the person asking the question has already begun to read out the question but is not completed the task, the questioner reads out the remainder of the question. The contestant is given the time to respond. This practice is what leads to the show’s famed slogan, “I’ve started, so I’ll finish.” If a question is given in full when the buzzer is sounded, however, the contestant hasn’t answered, and the questioner gives the contestant a brief time to answer the question before a final decision is provided. Beginning with the 2016-2017 series, viewers in the home can tell that the contest is coming to an end when the score’s frame begins to change color when there are 10 seconds left to go. Following this, the contestant is informed of the points he has earned, and the answers to any questions are provided. The next contestant takes his or her seat in the chair that is black, and the process is repeated. The process continues until each participant has had a chance to turn.
