On scoring a "hit" at the Battleships game, the team had to answer a question to gain the associated points. The show was also notable for host Richard Stilgoe playing the theme on a synthesiser live in the studio at the beginning, as well as the use of the phonetic alphabet to indicate the square on the battleship grid. The game of Battleships was played on a 7x7 grid and ran on a BBC Microcomputer. According to the Kaleidoscope Children's Guide, some editions of the series were wiped from the BBC archives in 1993.
