Top Club was a Scottish regional television game show produced by Grampian Television (now STV North) between 1971 and 1998.

History

Running for over 28 years, Top Club was an annual tournament of general knowledge quiz games involving clubs and organisations from the Northern Scotland region. The programme was the most watched regional light entertainment programme on the ITV network, winning audience shares of up to 46%.[1]

Initially broadcast until 1974 as Top Team, the programme was axed in 1984 before being revived in 1989 with new presenter Frank Gilfeather, who continued until the series was axed for a second time in 1998.
