20 to One (known as 20 to 1 before 2016) is an Australian television series on the Nine Network from 2005-2011, hosted by Bert Newton that counts down an undefined "top 20" of elements or events of popular culture, such as films, songs, sporting scandals. Previously the show was hosted by Bud Tingwell and narrated by David Reyne. The format mixes archival footage of the listed events with comments from various Australian celebrities.

The series was rebooted by the Nine Network, which returned with a new season on 31 May 2016 with new hosts, Australian radio hosts Fitzy & Wippa.[1][2][3]

Format[edit]

Each episode counts down the "top twenty" events following a particular theme, from position 20 down to number #1 Media clips depicting the event are played as the host provides background information of the entry. This is followed by clips of mostly Australian based celebrities providing comment on the clip or event.
