Robert Richland

Robert Richland was a finalist in Series 4. He was a computer programmer from Middlesex. His score of 75 in his fourth game was the highest of the series.

Richland had originally been selected to appear in Countdown's 30th Birthday Championship, but was unable to make it to the recordings and thus Darryl Francis took his place.

He is also a Scrabble expert. In 2000, he appeared on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, followed by Pointless in 2013.

His wife, Kathy, appeared as a contestant in Series 71, over 30 years after his original appearance.
