Quizzers? Any serious quizzer would regard this show with utter contempt, the only entertainment value lies in the fact that they contrive to find the thickest contestants imaginable, who then fail to answer the most basic questions even when given a multiple choice.

Dumbed down TV at it's worst, an embarrassment to the nation.

We're not serious quizzers! Just a group of us who seem to watch the same quiz shows.

Its only a bit of fun!

BBC Scotland is responsible for the lottery shows and they have traditionally been done in Glasgow which has HD studios.Only BBC Breakfast is in Salford, BBC News is still at TV Centre but will move to New BH shortly.

Does anyone know where to get the music for this show? I love the tune they play towards the end when a contestant misses out on their last question and has to go home.

7:10pm Britain's Brightest
8:25pm Britain's Dumbest

I think In It..... is one of the best lottery games shows there's ever been and it's certainly stood the test of time when others have fallen by the wayside.

I thought that both the last two series were fairly poor with small jackpots and very thick players. I enjoy seeing the players faces in the waiting area when the single person playing gets question after question correct and has taken the jackpot for themselves.

I enjoy playing along and hoping to join you all here later for a bit of on line fun.

Forgot about Jet Set and I think that was the only one that was done live.

Not overly keen on Winning Lines but I like the Dermot O Leary one later hosted by Ben Shepherd......1vs 100 I think

It was announced in 2009 all the lottery shows would be filmed at Pacific Quay in Glasgow. I suspect the move to Salford is to keep in line of localisation. Who Dares Wins was also recorded at Salford but the upcoming new show Break the Safe will be filmed at Pacific Quay.

It was called 1 vs 100 but it had the chop after it got thrashed by Britain's Got Talent in 2009 and compared to the other lottery shows, it was expensive to produce.

In It to Win It and Who Dares Wins was the most watched quiz shows in 2012. No surprises both shows are back this year. In It to Win It will be 11 years old this May. The longest running BBC One quiz show in this generation.

Quite surprised. They're going ahead and showing all 16 episodes as I though they would split it into 2 series of 8 shows each. This will be longest series they have done since the early days of 2003/2004 when it ran for 15 shows.

As you state, it will be longer than 16 weeks as we got The Voice coming up as well as Six Nations rugby.

The longevity of In it to Win it just shows there is an appetite for public humiliation. As a quiz it has always been crap.

Especially the cocky sods who pad out the most obvious of answers a la "well Im thinking she was german, but I dont think it was Marlene Dietrich, Dale...pretty sure it was Adolph Hitler, Dale...yes Adolph Hitler.." then lose 10,000 when asked in what year world war two ended and say "ooh...bit before my time, Dale ...I'll go for the middle one, 1950". Of course, I will be watching
