About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 28 September 2023
First performed at Carnegie Hall in 1893, the “New World Symphony,” officially known as Symphony No. 9 in E minor, was the work of Czech composer Antonín Dvořák during his time living in New York. The composition was partially influenced by the poem “The Song of Hiawatha” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
The symphony blends European musical heritage with American influences, including the melodies of African American spirituals and Native American music. One standout section is the Largo movement, featuring the celebrated “Goin’ Home” theme, which Dvořák himself composed but is often mistaken for a traditional spiritual.
Since its premiere, this musical work has remained a favorite, finding its way into various adaptations from movie scores to popular music arrangements.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 28 September 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
