So, Myrie got to keep his job – and I may have to upgrade his Mastermind score by one point. Still, five points on the subject of yourself – not great, is it? More wonderful contenders gunning for the ultimate quizzing prize. Specialist subjects that will delight, amaze and frankly baffle some, which is exactly how it should be. From Shakespeare's comedies to Killing Eve, British brutalist architecture to the works of Banksy. Does he feel constrained by impartiality? “Yeah, of course. I’m a human being and I’ve got opinions and ideas and points of view.” It’s just that, when he walks through the doors of this building, those points of view need to be invisible. “I am allowed to vote, Sam, but you don’t need to know, the public doesn’t need to know, how I vote.” The British author and newspaper columnist Keith Waterhouse (1929-2009) coined red masthead, precursor of the British journalistic term red top.

notes on the British phrase ‘I’ve started, so I’ll finish’

Sally Magnusson, Presenter". BBC Press Office. March 2006. Archived from the original on 4 May 2009. The winner is the contestant with the highest total score after two rounds. Ties are broken in favour of the contestant with the fewest total passes. If contestants have the same score and number of passes, a five-question tiebreaker is played. Each of the tied contestants answers the same set of questions individually, with the others exiting the studio so that they cannot hear the results. The contestant who gives the most correct answers is the winner. Oh dear, it is not going well. He doesn’t remember that, in an interview with Spotlight on Alumni of the University of Sussex, where Myrie studied law, he said his favourite record was the Bach cello suites played by Paul Tortelier. But he does know that the Verona opera festival, which he and his wife visit every year (the past two excepted), was started in 1913 to celebrate the centenary of Verdi’s birth.THEY’RE OFF—the field of 25,000 thunder down the Central Motorway from the start. . . . and some are already thinking of the finish Magnús Sigursteinsson was born in Reykjavík on 12 October 1929, but grew up in Edinburgh, where his father, Sigursteinn Magnússon, was the Icelandic consul. In Scotland his family adopted a British naming convention, and from childhood Magnus used his father's patronymic as a surname. He was the perfect host to prove ITV’s instinct that viewer enjoyment does not necessarily depend on the ability to play along at home. Instead, his easy intellect and unpreposessing grasp of trivia allowed viewers to enjoy the cleverness of others. As a smug arty teenager, I was at first bemused that my working-class north-eastern grandparents (who left school in their early teens) dutifully watched a programme on which they got even fewer of the answers than I did. Now, I ashamedly realise they were appreciating the spectacle of Gascoigne and his contestants’ intelligence (in whom they also saw their children, the first in the family to go to college) and further educating themselves. Whatever your knowledge bank, it was greater by the end of an episode.

Spitting Image used the Mastermind format in a sketch where a Magnus Magnusson puppet asked questions of a Jeffrey Archer puppet whose specialist subject was himself. The twist was that Archer's puppet, being incapable of answering questions about himself without exaggeration or evasion, ends the round with zero points. How did Myrie describe … [BEEP BEEP BEEP] I’ve started so I’ll finish … the boxer Tyson Fury in 2015, for which the BBC apologised?” The 2003-onwards version has been spoofed by the Dead Ringers team, with Jon Culshaw playing John Humphrys. In one send-up, which appeared on the television edition of Dead Ringers, the contestant offered to answer questions on Mary Queen of Scots, but when an answer was given, John Humphrys was shown saying "Yes, but you sexed that answer up". The sketch was a reference to the controversy caused by the aftermath of the Iraq War. One episode included Mastermind: The Opera. [14] Mastermind International – BBC One London – 7 April 1980". BBC Genome Project . Retrieved 7 November 2014.I always suggest to people who have booked for Module One of NLP Practitioner training that they pencil in the dates for the rest of the programme, ‘to keep their options open’. Why? Because I’ve had a few people in the past who booked for Module One, loved it and wanted to carry on through the programme but already had a lot of the dates booked for other things and so weren’t able to join us. By trying to keep their options open they actually removed the option to complete the course. The person in Options mode, on the other hand, finds it harder to say ‘yes’. The next step could be a month or two away and they don’t know whether there might be some other opportunity coming their way. They want to keep their options open. Maybe they book for Module One and decide to wait and see about the rest of the programme. This is, of course, exactly why we offer the opportunity to come to Module One with no obligation to go any further. I believe that once you have experienced the magic of NLP, you’ll want to do the whole course but I understand it’s a big commitment of time and money and you want to be certain that it’s for you.

There’s more latitude than you think,” he says. “I don’t think anyone would confuse my presenting style with Kenneth Kendall’s or Richard Baker’s. You can, in the way that you phrase things and in your whole demeanour, bring across something that suggests you’re not just this two-dimensional news robot reading an Autocue.” The dynamic doctor, who earned fulsome praise from host John Humphrys, admits he is ‘incredibly competitive’ and spent his evenings and weekends reading up on general knowledge. Hosted by BBC journalist and presenter Clive Myrie since 2021, the new series of Mastermind will see 96 contenders follow the tried and tested formula of facing two minutes of questions on their specialist subject, followed by two and a half minutes on general knowledge. Q&A with Mastermind host Clive Myrie Patience is a virtue Mike Hooper 5 acquired years ago, which has stood him in good stead since his arrival at Anfield. Nonetheless, Myrie studied law at university, after which he got a place at Middle Temple, as well as an offer to join the BBC as a trainee reporter. It was a toss-up between the two – follow his parents’ dreams or his own. “They came over in the 60s, the generation after Windrush, and you don’t travel 6,000 miles, leave everything you know, the sunshine, the beach, to come here for your children to be bums – ie journalists.”

Cup Final Grandstand – BBC One London – 6 May 1978". BBC Genome Project . Retrieved 7 November 2014. The Channel 4 Prank programme Balls of Steel parodied Mastermind with its sketch The Alex Zane Cleverness Game, in which experts were quizzed on their specialist subjects (included were "The Life of Anne Frank", " Eurovision Song Contest Winners", and " Hercule Poirot"). Unbeknown to the experts, the show was a hoax, and incorrect answers were included to frustrate them whenever they supplied the correct answer.
