BBC Looking for Teams to take part in ...

Post by Steve Henderson » Thu Feb 12, 2009 7:27 pm


Victoria Coren (The Observer, Balderdash and Piffle) presents the new series of the popular BBC 4 quiz show “Only Connect” where, as in life itself, knowledge will only take you so far: patience and lateral thinking are also vital. It’s all about making connections between things which may appear, at first glance, not to be connected at all.

We’re looking for teams of three players who share a common passion, ability or profession, to pool their combined wits to solve fiendish conundrums and vexing puzzles.

During the audition process teams will have the opportunity to try some sample questions and to get a feel for the show. Here’s a sample of the kind of question that appears (answers below).

For an application, please email a request to

All entries must be received by no later than midnight on Tuesday 17 February 2009 which is just around the corner.

What do these four have in common?





What’s the rule for the sequence – and what comes next?





Auditions will be held in regional centres across the UK.

Applicants must be 18 years of age or over and U.K. residents.

Teams that are successful in getting through to the show should be available on the 9th, 10th and 11th March 2009 for filming in Cardiff. Contestants may only be needed on one or two of these days but we ask that our teams can be available on all three dates to cover any eventualities.


1. Each word contains a number.

2. Liverpool – the answers are based on consecutive area codes, Birmingham is 0121, Edinburgh 0131, Glasgow 0141 and Liverpool is 0151.

Good Luck :)
