As official As It Happens 50th anniversary quiz master, Jeff Douglas had his work cut out.

It didn't take long for things to get heated with such a star-studded lineup of contestants: As It Happens host Carol Off, As It Happens royalty and host of The Sunday Edition Michael Enright — and finally, the young-gun, As It Happens diehard fan and host of Tom Power.

Needless to say, the competition was fierce. The trash talking relentless. And the suspense unbearable.

From questions about the usual suspects like Moe Koffman and Reading, to Fireside Al Maitland impressions, and an other-worldly Mystery Caller — listen along, and put your As It Happens knowledge to the test.

Oh, and did we mention there's an in-studio cameo by a beaver and donkey delivering pineapple pizza?
