Una vez en la vida
Two hundred and ten contestants and 210 million pesetas. This could be a brief introduction to the most massively attended quiz show ever produced on Spanish television. ‘Una vez en la vida’ had an unusual format, since it was the selfsame studio audience who were also the contestants at the same time.
From then on, 20 of the spectators from this section were chosen at random by computer to take part in the quiz on stage. Different questions eliminated the contestants so that, at the end, there was one winner with a bag containing 210 million pesetas which they could keep according to the result of the last series of questions, seven in all. Each incorrect answer signified dividing up this quantity so that 0 errors meant winning all 210 million. One mistake, 30 million; two mistakes, 6 million, 3 mistakes, 2 million; 4 mistakes, 1 million; 5 mistakes, half a million and 6 mistakes, 250,000 pesetas. If the contestant got all seven questions wrong (they were multiple choice questions) they won absolutely nothing. The final question session was undoubtedly the most exciting part of the quiz, since the results were not known until all the answers had been given.
