Concentration originally aired from June 16, 1959 to June 7, 1960 by Granada Television and was hosted by Barry McQueen in 1959 (Chris Howland and David Gell each hosted in 1960).

It was later revived by TVS from 1988-1990, hosted by Nick Jackson (not to be confused with the radio personality of the same name) and Bob Carolgees; unlike the American version, the bonus round was played with eight trips and the contestant was awarded the non-matching trip for clearing the board.

Both versions were shown on ITV, while the American version with Alex Trebek was also shown by Sky One in the 1990s.
