James Bannerman hosted this show in which a panel attempts to guess the identity of an artifact from a gallery or museum. Archaeologists Walter Kenyon and John Lunn of the Royal Ontario Museum were regular panelists who were joined by a third guest panelist.[1] This concept was previously demonstrated during some episodes of Tabloid.[2]

CBC broadcast a similar panel game quiz program, What on Earth, from 1971 to 1975.[1]


This half-hour series was broadcast on Fridays at 9 p.m. from 3 July to 25 September 1959.
