Meet the families hoping to win the star prize on Murphy's Micro Quiz-M.

Mike Murphy introduces this episode of the quiz and it has been six weeks since a family has won the top prize.

Normally, the cars go with such rapidity that I'm wondering will my car be the prize next week.

The three families competing tonight are the McConvilles from Brownstown in County Kildare, the Dalys from Coolock in Dublin and the Cunninghams from County Carlow. 

Prizes on this week's show include a two week holiday for four in Majorca, a set of beauty appliances, a deep fat fryer, a home fire prevention kit, £200 worth of vacuum packed meat, a Mitsubishi MxF 64k Computer, £1,000 worth of Shell fuel and the star prize of the Ford Sierra.

This episode of Murphy's Micro Quiz-M was broadcast on 17 February 1985. 

'Murphy's Micro Quiz-M’ was first broadcast on 9 October 1983. The quiz featured three competing families and was one of the first to use computers in the programme format.

Murphy’s Micro Quiz-M ran from 1983 to 1987 and was presented by Mike Murphy.
