I'm looking forward to watching Mastermind tonight on BBC2 (there will be questions on the life and music of Nick). Wonder how many questions I'll get right!?

I got 14 out of 18. The contestant got all 18 correct. Well done!

Didn't he do well!!!

I found it difficult to voice the answers as quickly as the contestant, even though I was sitting in the comfort of my own sitting room!

Hats off to the chartered accountant!!

If you missed the programme you can see it here http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01b3c4x/Mastermind_2011_2012_Episode_9/.

For those that cannot access BBC iplayer, and if I get time, I'll post the questions here later.

Well, I knew 17 out of 18, though the contestant was faster at saying the answer out loud. The only one I didn't remember was the name of NIck's Music Master at Marlborough.

They weren't hard questions though.

In a head-to-head against the guy on TV I think I got about 10 either before or at the same time as him. He was great though!

I struggled on the ones about Nick's live shows, who was he suporting etc.

If nobody does it before me, I'll put it up on YouTube some time.

If you do, would you let us know? I'd love to see it.

Mark Wyatt, the contestant, has got in touch and asked me to post the link below - apparently you can watch the programme no matter where in the world you are! Thank you Mark.

Impressive! I found that even if I knew the answer, I often couldn't come up with it in a decent amount of time.

Thanks for the link Smile

Thanks Seran,

I've been wanting to see this since I first heard about it.

Clearly he has most of the answers on his tongue before the question is finished. I wonder if it is considered bad form to interrupt the question with the answer?

He would have gotten through even more questions that way!
