The first Calendar Countdown pilot was a pilot episode never transmitted, but it did feature Series 1 contestants Joyce Cansfield and Christine Jones, as well as a further contestant, Alec Buchanan. The next contestant would help Ted Moult in Dictionary Corner. Christine Jones helped Ted Moult during the match between Joyce Cansfield and Alec Buchanan. The game was six rounds. After Alec Buchanan left, Ian Penny helped out in Dictionary Corner.

NOTE: The first Conundrum was AALNERCD, answer to which was CALENDAR, but due to some misunderstandings between contestants, this round was later withdrawn.
