Si l’encerto, l’endevino
Something apparently as simple as basing a quiz show on refrains and sayings was a real success, as can be seen from the ratings for ‘Si l’encerto, l’endevino’, which arrived on the screens of TV3 in 1995. By means of some charming drawings, an authentic challenge for those entrusted to do them, the contestants had to guess some words in Catalan and sayings by means of the animated hieroglyphics.
The same success was experienced by the thirty programmes made for the Valencian autonomous channel, also broadcast daily in the early afternoon slot. The Valencian version, presented by Ximo Rovira, attained screen shares of over 20%, touching 30% on occasions and beating the news programme of TVE.
The following year, and with the same format, the programme was shown on the Galician autonomous channel and presented by Fidel Luis Iglesias.
The autonomous channel Telemadrid turned to the same format some years later. The programme, which began daily broadcasts in April 1999, was presented by Carlos Lozano. Every day, at six o’clock, three contestants invited to the set put their imagination and memory to the test to discover well-known riddles, sayings, puzzles and refrains. The closer they were, the better the prizes, of course, consisting of respectable sums of cash and trips. Additionally, in another section of the programme, the audience had the chance to compete by phone from home in by attempting to win a game of “Tres en raya”.
