No, this is not a new quiz. I've just moved the Bonus Section of by previous quiz
("T is for...TV Themes, Tunes and Things") over here,  so I could add some hints & tips.
This section proved harder than I thought...


To make things a little easier for you, I've listed various categories to choose from.
All shows/series fit into one or more categories. Let's hope this works...


drama | game/quiz | DYI | soap | reality | art | technology/science | consumer | satire
gardening | music | varied | sitcom | police/detective | sports | talkshow | road safety
youth/teens | children/kids | current affairs | hospital | book adaptation | emo | news
profile | movie/film reviews | educational | fashion | stand up comedy | fantasy


Each correct answer is now worth 2 points.





Bonus Questions:
01.

02.

03. Studio Sport (1959 - present)
        Leader that was used in 1988
04. Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden / GTST (Soap opera, 1990 - present)

You're absolutely right about these three, Philip. :)

#13 is "Medisch Centrum West" (Medical Center West), a soap/drama series set at a fictitious hospital. It aired from 1988 to 1994.
#18 is "Ren Je Rot", a quiz show for 11/12 year old kids. Every episode had two schools competing. The quiz (where all questions were multiple choice) aired from 1973 to 1983. The German equivalent "Eins, Zwei oder Drei" is still on air.

#31 does have the same title music as "Please Sir!", but it's not the same program. It's not even a sitcom.

Here, let me throw in an extra hint for #3:

See...? This quiz isn't hard at all. ;)

#3 is "Studio Sport", a program that has been around since 1959 (although under a different name and with a different tune back then).
This tune has been used since the 1980s (with the exception of a few years in late 1990s/early2000s).

Here's one that was used in 1988
