After being given its marching orders in the middle of the year, the ABC’s Einstein Factor bows out on Sunday, ending a six year run.
The show filmed its black-tie 2009 Grand Final before being given the news, so don’t be looking for any great hurrahs.
Here’s what you can expect to see in the last ever episode.
Will it be Perth’s Raymond Palermo with his knowledge of the five good Roman emperors from 96AD to 180AD? Or will Mark Reisman from Sydney with his passion for the films of Alfred Hitchcock take the title? They both will have to be quick to beat fellow contestant, Sydneysider, Andrew Whatham with his special topic the life of Wilhelm Canaris, the famous German admiral.
Lending a helping hand to the contestants is our Brains Trust panel of experts and Einstein Factor favourites, Dr Barry Jones, Dr Clio Cresswell and Matt Parkinson. To find out who wins, don’t miss the final episode of The Einstein Factor.
It airs at 6:30pm Sunday on ABC1. A week later it is replaced with a repeat of Wild Provence.
