Well there was more evidence of it tonight. A very knowledgeable "Captain" of Imperial, rattling off answers right left and centre even before Paxman had barely started with the questions, and the rest of the team had a debate on which County Maryport was in. After much deliberation....their answer...

Hampshire.

HAMPSHIRE! not even close. Cumbria of course.

..and tonight the biscuit was taken.....Durham University in an extremely lacklustre performance hit the depths with the "waterfalls of England" 3 bonus questions. We only need to consider their collective answer to number 1.

Remember its Durham University, with the cream selected , 4 very intelligent people who had spent at least 12 years or more between them in Durham.
The question which River are the Waterfalls High Force and Cauldron Snout on :?:
They confer, none of them have a clue, then in a Eureka moment the captain says....yes High Force that's somewhere up near us.....and they agreed their answer

The River Wear...................................................................

THE RIVER WEAR, THE RIVER WEAR. #-o #-o

Yet more evidence of my need to dump "the general level of ignorance of the geography and history of Great Britain" in Room 101

Yes not everyone will know the answer, but for a team from Durham not to know it is the TEES just takes the biscuit. Yes and Roger Whittaker was a bit cavalier with his "I got to leave old Durham Town" look up the lyrics he seems to think "Old Durham Town " is on the River Tyne...

I despair at the same issue, on The Chase last night a contestant was asked "Which county does Wensleydale cheese come from?" Her answer? "Manchester!"

The Mamba Green's territory is probably within 5 miles of you Steve so beware if you ever head down the Old Durham Road. :-D

I'll make a point to avoid that area then Neil.
I was down there daily last year but that is over now.
