Good quiz but there should be better descriptions, eg Red Dwarf should be 1988 - 1993, 1997 - 1999, 2009- present. Additionally maybe 'Sci-fi Sitcom' would be a better description. Film progamme could also just be Film as the title changes every year

I presume this isn't a definitive list because Horizon isn't there for starters. It's had 49 series since 1964.

You could ease up a little on what you accept for "BBC News". I tried Newsnight, Six o'clock news and news at ten, all with no luck.
