    As an aside q2 was a million dollar question on the English version of Who wants to be a millionaire and was successfully answered for the prize


  3. Teletext says:

    Who are the following better known as?

    1. Reg Dwight and Pauline Mathews

    2. Cherilyn Sarkisian

    3. Hugh Anthony Cregg III

    4. Troyal Brooks

    5. Marshall Bruce Mathers III


  4. Teletext says:


    1. Henry II

    2. Eleanor of Aquitaine

    3. John (who signed the Magna Carta) then William III who was John’s eldest son and Richard I’s nephew

    4. William, Henry. Geoffrey and John and sisters Matilda, Eleanor and Joan, and half sisters Marie and Alix

    5. Berengaria of Navarre, even though he was still engaged to Alys Countess of the Vexen who was the daughter of Louis VII of France and was suspected as being a mistress to Henry II. Richard’s marriage was approved of by his mother as Navarre was next to Aquitaine and gave them a much larger territory. Berengaria also accompanied Richard on the First Crusade and she never set foot in England until after Richard’s death. They had no children.

    1. Elton John. 5. M and M.

    I could have taken a reasonable shot at Andrei’s quiz but there doesn’t seem much point. I wonder who gave TT a thumbs down and why…for being a smart-arse?


  6. Andrei says:

    I would say Teletext that Pauline Matthews must be Kiki Dee since you have lumped her with Elton John

    Cherilyn Sarkisian must be Cher since Sarkisian is a good Armenian name

    And Troyal Brooks must be Garth (“aint going down til the sun comes up”) Brooks
