The footage for the latter question will be of many different events and all show balls, or whatever item has been askedMystery Guest – teams have to identify a sports star in unfamiliar circumstances and with unconventional camera angles.

Team captains always receive "away" questions.Captain's Challenge – the captains have a contest in different feats.One Minute Round – teams are asked nine questions in 60 seconds.On the Buzzer – teams answer questions at quickfire pace (this was only introduced in later years – in the Vine and Coleman eras, the show would end with the remaining six Picture Board questions.)
