One of my fondest childhood memories can be traced back to watching 'Bournvita Quiz Contest' with my siblings. (BQC and Chitrahaar were the only two small-screen luxuries we were allowed when we were young :)) Long before Big Bachchan took to the hot seat armed with trivia's and questions, quizmaster Derek O'Brien enthralled his little audiences with GQ edu-tainment. It was a neat ploy then used by parents to get their kids to solving quizzes, engaging in reading and also extra motivation to study hard, so that we could beat each other at the mock quizzes.
With the increasing advent of 'money-over-matter' reality shows capturing the small-screen, it’s almost impossible to find anything of remote sensibility to be watched on television. This has been the increasing concern for many who have come together and started a movement to 'Bring the BQC Back'.
What started out as something simple has now become a full on quizzing hub. People are sharing their Q&A's. Some have also come up with cool one liners - like 'Don't be Stupid, Bring BQC Back' and 'Bring Sexy Back, Bring BQC Back' which have got converted into badges and banners et al. They’ve also got Derek and Mr. Amin Sayani (the original quizster) to spread the word.
Right now, they’re working on the steps forward, but you can show your support by joining the movement. And If you have any suggestions, feedbacks, ideas for the team, shout it out.
