Can you name the composer of the theme music to the classic Charlie Chaplin film 'Modern Times'? Or guess which composer's work is the most-performed in the entire history of the Proms?

The evergreen music quiz returns for its 2011 series, with Paul Gambaccini in the questionmaster's chair. He'll be putting questions on the widest possible range of music to contestants from all over Great Britain, the eventual champion taking the 25th Counterpoint trophy at the end of June.

Paul Gambaccini has the answer to this and many other musical teasers, as he chairs the third semi-final in the current series of the long-running music quiz. The three contestants are each aiming for the one remaining place in next week's grand Final, to stand a chance of becoming the 25th Counterpoint champion.

As usual the questions cover every genre of music, from the classical repertoire through film and show tunes, light music, jazz, and sixty years of the pop charts.

Producer: Paul Bajoria.

The 25th anniversary series of the evergreen music quiz reaches its grand Final, with Paul Gambaccini in the questionmaster's chair.

The winners of the three semi-finals gather in the BBC Radio Theatre for the tense climax of the series. One of them will take away a handsome silver trophy and join the roll of honour as the 25th Radio 4 Counterpoint champion. To achieve it, they'll have to show knowledge of the widest possible range of music, from the classical repertoire to light music, show tunes, film themes, jazz, rock and pop.

As always, Paul will have plenty of musical extracts on hand, some familiar and some surprising.

Producer: Paul Bajoria.

Paul Gambaccini chairs radio's most eclectic music quiz.

(12/13)
Benjamin Britten's 'War Requiem' was commissioned for the opening of the rebuilt Coventry Cathedral in the 1960s - but do you know which composer's choral work 'The Beatitudes' was also first unveiled on that occasion? And if that's not the kind of 60s music you're steeped in, try this: which California band had Grace Slick as its singer?

There's just one place left in the 2017 Final of Counterpoint. The three heat winners who return to face Paul Gambaccini's questions today will have to prove that their knowledge is wide-ranging enough to get them over the final hurdle in the race for the trophy. And they'll have to identify music from much longer ago than the 1960s, and from much more recently too, if they're to stand a chance.
