Only Connect special
Friday, 11 November 2011
The normal Only Connect tournament (currently at the semi-final stage) pauses on Monday night for a Children In Need special - in the usual slot, 8.30pm on BBC Four.
We’ve got some totally brilliant star quizzers joining us to play this charity event - all of whom travelled to Cardiff for the quiz, for no fee, and I’d like to thank them all very much for that.
The two teams you’ll see battling for connecting supremacy on Monday:
THE GREAT BELIEVERS
Nick Hornby (captain)
THE FREE SPEAKERS
Ian Hislop (captain)
If nothing else, I think they’ll prove that British culture is not yet reduced entirely to pop star wannabes with empty heads and plastic tits… hurray for our flag-waving intellectuals!
If you enjoy the programme, I do hope you’ll feel able to make a donation to Children In Need; here’s how.
