Geoffrey Wheeler

In the obituary of Geoffrey Wheeler (2 January) you mention that in 1981 Winner Takes All, the multi-choice quiz that he devised, "awarded the biggest cash prize ever on a British game show, £6,220, a record it held for a further 12 years", writes Michael Dixon. This was the record until 1986, when I had the privilege of setting a new record of £7,455 on the same show. This remained the record for 12 years until a change in the law removed the restrictions on the amount that could be won. In November 1998 Who Wants To be A Millionaire saw to it that this record was obliterated.
