The RTS was founded in September 1927, following a lecture at Leeds University from one of the future inventors of television, John Logie Baird.
 
“Invented before TV – the RTS was always ahead of its time,” said RTS Yorkshire Chair Fiona Thompson, while introducing Bragg to a sell-out crowd at ITV’s Leeds Television Centre in late-November.
 
During a wide-ranging address, the veteran arts broadcaster argued: “All new inventions provoke wonder and horror; hope and fear.” Television, too, has “a dark side”.
 

Brand-new ITV quiz show 5 Gold Rings to be hosted by Phillip Schofield

5 Gold Rings will see two teams go head-to-head over the course of five rounds. One team will walk away with up to £25,000 whilst the other will leave with nothing. 

The teams will have to battle against the clock to answer questions by placing gold rings onto a supersized image displayed beneath their feet. For example, the picture might be a map of the world and teams will attempt the question, ‘Where is the highest mountain on earth?’ by placing a gold ring on the image where they think the answer is.
