Only Connect on BBC Two
Monday, 26 August 2013
Just heard that Only Connect specials will be screened all this week on BBC Two - Monday to Friday at 7.30pm!
But be warned: if you’re a devotee of the quiz, these are specials that have previously been on BBC Four. And if you’ve never seen it before: these specials are at the absolute zenith of difficulty, most of them designed to tax former champions who are returning to play each other. For the viewers, it’s almost at comedy level, having watched a series of increasing difficulty, to watch some closing specials that are so absurdly challenging that it’s less about joining in than simply marvelling at the contestants who can answer this kind of thing. The show isn’t normally that tough; a new series will be on BBC Four in the autumn, and begin as usual at a much more accessible level.
Well… I say “much” more…
