Tom Sutcliffe chairs the latest heat of the cryptic general knowledge quiz. Scotland take on Northern Ireland.

Question 1

Why would a certain dog, a cad, and a cardie all tell a moving tale?

Question 2
Northern Ireland

Start with something dead easy. When you find it's right up your street, you’ll realise you’ve got a reward beyond expectation. Which meal are we having?

Question 3

What game are we playing?

Question 4
Northern Ireland

Why are these two contradictory? And which environmentalist stands between them?

Question 5 – listener question from James Brown in Dereham

Question 6 – listener question from Anne Parker in London
Northern Ireland

What links Elia’s author, Scarlett’s servant, and Paul’s birthplace?

Question 7

Proceed in equal steps from John Berger to Hunter S. Thompson, via 180ml, a possible cause of the end of the world, and the Isle of Calypso.

Question 8
