In this television special for the final episode of BP Pick a Box (1957–71), husband and wife team Bob and Dolly Dyer take a trip down memory lane to look at the show's highlights over the previous 14 years before saying their final goodbyes.

Pick a Box was one of the earliest TV game shows to achieve great success, making a smooth transition from radio to TV in 1957. 

This clip features appearances from one of Pick a Box's most famous contestants – Barry Jones, whose verbal jousting and disagreements with host Dyer were legendary.

Jones later became a member of both state and federal parliament and a long-running federal Science Minister for the Labor Government (1983–90).

There were two attempts to revive Pick a Box in the 1980s under the name Superquiz, however they did not have the same success.  

The final episode of Pick a Box was broadcast on 28 June 1971.
