Additional Information

This programme was made as a test and not for broadcast. Despite the decision not to transmit the programme to television audiences, it was recorded and survives as a black and white film recording. This was recently aired in a retrospective season on the RAI Storia channel.

Despite the programme not being made for television broadcast, the rule of 'winner stays on' still applied and Saronno went forward to appear in the first transmitted edition of Campanile Sera a week later.
