Any Questions was an Australian television series which aired on ABC from 1958 to 1960. The series presented a panel, who would discuss various topics in each episode. ABC produced several discussion series during the 1950s and 1960s. Originally aired on Thursdays, it later moved to Wednesdays. Some of the editions were made in Sydney, while others were made in Melbourne. The "Chairman" overseeing the panel varied: In Melbourne it included Frank Eyre, in Sydney it included Nicholas Larkins and Frank Legg. TV listings from the run of the series suggest the Sydney edition was telerecorded for Melbourne broadcast, even though video-tape was available in Australia by 1959. It is not known if any of these telerecordings are still extant, given the erratic survival rate of 1950s Australian television programs.
Twenty Questions is a spoken parlor game which encourages deductive reasoning and creativity. It originated in the United States and was played widely in the 19th century. It escalated in popularity during the late 1940s when it became the format for a successful weekly radio quiz program. In the traditional game, one player is chosen to be the answerer. That person chooses a subject but does not reveal this to the others. All other players are questioners. They each take turns asking a question which can be answered with a simple "Yes" or "No." In variants of the game, multiple state answers may be included such as the answer "Maybe." The answerer answers each question in turn. Sample questions could be: "Is it bigger than a breadbox?" or "Can I put it in my mouth?" Lying is not allowed in the game. If a questioner guesses the correct answer, that questioner wins and becomes the answerer for the next round. If 20 questions are asked without a correct guess, then the answerer has stumped the questioners and gets to be the answerer for another round. Careful selection of questions can greatly improve the odds of the questioner winning the game. For example, a question such as "Does it involve technology for communications, entertainment or work?" can allow the questioner to cover a broad range of areas using a single question that can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no". If the answerer responds with "yes," the questioner can use the next question to narrow down the answer; if the answerer responds with "no," the questioner has successfully eliminated a number of possibilities for the answer.

Twenty Questions was a Canadian television game show, which aired on CTV in the 1961-62 television season. Produced by CJAY-TV in Winnipeg and hosted by Stewart Macpherson, the show was an adaptation of the earlier American game show Twenty Questions. Panelists on the show included Rassy Ragland, the mother of Neil Young. Twenty Questions was broadcast on Wednesday evenings, 19:30 in Toronto, beginning 4 October 1961. The programme lasted only a single season on CTV. Macpherson subsequently went on to host a British adaptation of Twenty Questions for Associated-Rediffusion. Les Wedman, television columnist for The Vancouver Sun, deemed the production to be a "dull, witless presentation of a parlor [sic] game".

Questions for the Future is a debate television series aired periodically on financial news channels CNBC Europe, CNBC Asia and CNBC World in the US, currently focusing on the subject of energy. The programmes are produced in association with Shell, which advertises before, during and after each edition, although the company states that CNBC retains full editorial control over their content. Each episode is recorded in a different location around the world, normally with some connection to the topic of discussion. The debate is initially held among a panel of experts, before being opened up to the studio audience. The first series of the programme was aired in 2005, consisting of six hour-long discussions on such topics as outsourcing and globalisation. Presenting duties were shared between CNBC Europe anchors Geoff Cutmore, Ross Westgate and Simon Hobbs. A one-off special on the topic of energy consumption followed from the January 2006 WEF meeting. The format of the programme was altered slightly for the second series in 2006, with the running time of the shows cut to 30 minutes and the topics of conversation confined to aspects of energy such as energy demand, biofuels and sustainability. Cutmore became the permanent presenter of the programme. This format has been retained in the third series, aired in 2007.
