Small Talk was a BBC1 game show aired from 24 July 1994 to 18 December 1996 and it was hosted by The Two Ronnies star Ronnie Corbett.


Rounds 1 and 2

Corbett asks the three contestants a question that they asked panel of nine children. The contestants secretly lock in what they think the majority of the panel answered (the majority guess), and those who are correct get 10 points (20 points in series 2).

After this, one by one, the contestants picked a single child and guess what he or she said, and if correct they score 20 points (30 points in series 2) in Round 1 and 30 points (40 points in series 2) in Round 2.

Round 3

In this round, only the two players with the highest scores are allowed to play. Now, players alternate randomly selecting children with buzzers located at their lecterns. Otherwise, gameplay is the same, awarding players 40 points per match.

Final round

In the final round the winner will try to turn his or her main game score to 500 and to do this they must do the following. The contestant picks 5 panelists and each is given a question. Each kid holds a card with a number on it from 50 to 500. If the contestant guesses the response of the kid correctly he or she will get the points on the card added to s/hes overall score. If the contestant gets 500 points or more they will win the grand prize and £500, if they score less than 500 he or she will win £1 a point minus the number of points needed to make 500; for example, a contestant finishing on 470 points would win £440.
