Nice one, Steve - but I got twenty-four! Sorry...

Too many art-related questions again, but outside of those, it was a pretty good mix. Classical music (Coppelia, Franz Lehar etc), astronomy (Betelgeuse, Algol etc), and surprisingly, German films of the 1920's, were good subjects for me!

Yes I got the films (one of my main interests) but astronomy is largely unknown to me I'm afraid.

Got twenty-one. Missed out on several I should I should have known, but I will admit that I've NEVER heard "giddy as a kipper"...

Got the first two bowlers, Gibbs and Bedi, and of course, the Beethoven round was good for me.

Felt sorry for the cricketer who seemed at a loss during the game and missing out on the cricket questions.

Nice round twenty for me. Yeah, Leeds and Chelsea was a perfect round for me! I struggled with most of the poetry, but I did get Betjeman and McGough reading their own...

Twenty-one for me, and yeah, the singers were easy for me too - i even called Gracie Fields before she started singing!

Yes I knew that she'd be in the mix somewhere when Jeremy stated the batch of questions to be answered. Seen her statue in Rochdale but can't say I was a fan of hers unlike George...
