LAST WEEK'S TEASER QUESTION
A castaway composer, a Tom Stoppard play, and a Welsh footballer with a strong Watford connection: in what order might you put them on?
Answer: The clues give us Eric Coates (composer of ‘By The Sleepy Lagoon’, used as the theme for ‘Desert Island Discs’), ‘Jumpers’ (the Tom Stoppard play of 1972), and Kenny Jackett (Watford player in the 1980s and later manager). So the appropriate order would be: Jumpers, Jackett, Coates.
