    OK, time for our very own FM version of that old test of highbrow intellect. Members should get together to form teams of four and stand by to answer questions set by Mark 'Paxman' Wintle.

    You don't have to currently be at college in our version, and if you can't decide who you want to make up your teams, members will be selected for you.

    My own team to take on all comers is Myself, Jeff Woodhouse, Lord Paul and Deanos. I reckon that covers just about every facet of life, from Upper Crust to Pie Crust. Thespianism to Strange Mannerisms.

    Anyone up for it.......?
    Still not sure what's going on

    "Anyone up for it.......?"

    If no 'googling' is allowed, then yes, I'm game.

    Here is your starter for 10:

    William J. Robertson is famous for inventing the Kate McLaren, but, he also invented which of these?

    a) Poacher

    b) Broughtons Point

    c) Heckham Peckham

    d) Red Legs.

    ?

    b) Peter Vaughan?

    c) Dr. William Baigent?

    d) A. Courtney Williams?

    or . . . .
