"The quiz show that takes nerve! A program for people who are willing to take a second chance... He proves that opportunity can knock twice, it's Johnny Olsen!" 

Few of us are able to succeed the very first time, but it's the person who has the nerve and courage to try again in the face of tough breaks and big odds who gets everybody's respect. It's just this type of person who's selected from the audience - people who have failed at something important in their lives but who have come back stronger are they people they want... The first contestant is called Mrs Virginia Paisley, who traveled over 15,000 miles and spent many, many months searching for the backgrounds of 21 American POWs who defected and stayed in China after the Korean war ended.
