The first contestant is knocked out after a quick-fire observation round leads to a dramatic tie-break.
The four semi-finalists must all overcome their number phobia, as they are faced with memorising number-heavy sequential lists of US Presidents, 1960s Number Ones, the Modern Summer Olympics and The Academy Awards - plus hundreds of associated facts, dates and statistics. With fingers on buzzers, another competitor is knocked out after a taxing rapid-recall numbers round.
