A wide view showing proceedings at the Overseas Club in London. In the foreground and slightly to the left are the audience, and the band are on the left hand side of the photograph, with saxophone and trombone players clearly visible. In the background, a group of people are gathered around the bar, buying drinks. To the right of the photograph, surrounding the microphone, can be seen the two teams who are competing against each other in the quiz which will form part of the broadcast. The teams are 'Newfoundland', towards the right of the photograph, and 'Rest of the World'. Each team member has a piece of paper around their neck with their name on, so that the question master Joan Gilbert can recognise them.
