With the success of Front Page Challenge the CBC produced this show with a biographical theme, rather than news stories. Each week, three authorities appeared as contestants representing a well-known person. Four panelists had to figure out who the contestant represented. During the summer of 1960, the program went on the road, and the CBC produced programs in Halifax, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Vancouver, and Montreal.
