Spelling mistake in Familiada. The city community intervened

“Familiada” has almost 30 years of tradition behind it, and both the participants and the production did not avoid mishaps that were immediately picked up by TV viewers and Internet users. Recently, there has been a lot of talk about inaccurately cut footage, suggesting that all correct answers were revealed for a fraction of a second before teams had a chance to pick them, and the first computer system failure in 26 years, resulting in miscalculations. Recently, the production made a mistake again. It was about the spelling of the name of a popular town.


The question was trivial

Last Sunday afternoon, the episode “Familiady” was broadcast, in which the participants were asked about cities beginning with the letter “W”. Teams easily indicated Warsaw or Wrocław, which were most often indicated by the respondents. However, they had a problem with a popular tourist destination in the Pomeranian Voivodeship – Wejherowo. When the missing name on the board was revealed, it turned out to be misspelled – as WejCHerowo. The hosts and players did not react. Only netizens pointed out the fall.

The local community intervened

A frame from the program commemorating the error also appeared in social media on a fanpage run by the residents of Wejherowo – Wejherowianie. The community pointed out the production’s lack of a firm reaction to the error, which duplicates the erroneous thinking about the spelling of the city’s name. His spelling with “ch” is relatively common, but according to Wejherowians, such a mistake should not be made on television, where exemplary Polish should be promoted.

Such a surprise.

– commented briefly the owners of the Facebook page. In the comments, users did not hide their indignation.


This is not the first time that they want us to change the spelling of the city’s name by force.

Wejherowo by “CH” and it’s called Public TV

What station, such spelling.

This mistake is a modification of reality, i.e. their business card.

– they wrote.

They pointed out that the station may also have had “problems with math”, as the photo suggests that the number of points was miscalculated. It turns out, however, that the points assigned to the incorrectly written town did not count towards the pool, because as an answer none of the participants spoke. Internet users also informed about the error in the comments under the post about the winners of the last episode on the official fanpage of the game show. However, the production did not respond to the allegations.
