The puzzle that viewers of all ages are always keen to solve. 

In each daily episode we see 'The chair' standing in a different – recognizable - location. Anyone recognizing that location must hurry as fast as possible, armed with a certain item as instructed in the programme itself, in an attempt to be first to sit in 'The chair'. The first to sit down wins a prize.

Interactive program with a difference, and an appointment to view each night  to see if 'The chair' is in your neighbourhood.
