Ahem. We’ll explain the above video in a moment. But first, this…
Tonight (i.e. Monday) is the final of Only Connect on BBC4. It’s TV’s best quiz (Pointless, obviously, a close second). But don’t worry, the show that was nearly called Link’em Park isn’t about to disappear from your screens – like Dr Who. No, next Monday BBC4 are bringing us Wall Night, an evening devoted to the Connecting Walls round. Most excitingly, we’re told it’ll feature scenes of Question Editor and host of this very website, David J* Bodycombe, in his actual office, setting actual questions! A chance to see how David lives his life? What’s not to like? We hear he’s had his staircase remodelled as a Rubik’s Snake.
And then – oh! And then! Some time in early 2012, we’ll get the Only Connect: Champion of Champions episode, pitting [captain of the 2008 champion team] David Stainer against his wife Katie Bramall-Stainer [who helmed the winning 2010 team]. Hence the above excitable video, courtesy of TV Cream’s Whimsical Films Unit. We hope that all makes sense.
* The ‘J’ stands for ‘Jeux Sans Frontières’, BTW.Read More
