For the next day and a halfish - if you're very quick - you can hear me and daughter number one being embarrassingly ignorant on a BBC radio quiz:

we're on at about the 20:30 mark

Played with grace, I thought.

When I was at uni I was drafted into a student radio quiz - live, before an audience - ten minutes before it started due to a (wise, I soon came to realise) last minute drop-out. I remember nothing of what followed, except that at a certain point each team got to chose one of the opposing players to do a spot light round, so of course they picked me. Apparently I didn't know what "EU" meant.

EDIT: What the- you won! Holly totally carried you, dad...
