Team captains: Phil Nice and Arthur Smith


BBC Radio 2, 10 October to 14 November 1988 (6 episodes)


A panel game concerning cryptic and daft trivia questions, something of a proto-QI.

Example questions posed to the teams included:

  • Who invented the haircut?
  • What was Cleopatra's cure for indigestion?
  • What is the chemical symbol of spaghetti bolognese?
  • Why was Brahms named after a slang term for intoxication?
  • Who wasn't in Quo Vadis?
  • Which Shakespeare play contains the song I Can't Get No Satisaction?
