If you like QI, you'll love this. Low key presentation (no audience, no SFX) and very very very difficult questions. As an example of the sort of thing you'll be presented with, contestants were asked to provide the fourth word in the following sequences, readers are invited to try for themselves! Wheat, Set, Cease,??? or Thorn, Shout, Seat,??? The question mistress, Victoria Coren, probably took the whole series getting used to how to present the series but by the last show was at last getting her delivery right. For example, one question involved the pawning of an item by the British Monarchy to pay for a war against France. Ms Coren's comment? "Money well spent"!
