Abstract:

Compilation of excerpts featuring dancers or performers as mystery guests. Each segment of the game centered around a past or present news story related to the mystery guest, whom the panelists attempted to identify through a series of questions. A background report then provided more details about the news story and guest, and the panelists asked the guest further questions, generally about their careers, other dancers (Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov are often mentioned), dance companies (especially the National Ballet of Canada), and other aspects of dancing.
