Only Connect, Series 6 Episode 4 of 20

Duration: 30 minutes

Victoria Coren hosts the series where, as in life itself, knowledge will only take you so far: patience and lateral thinking are also vital.

Three writers face three high school teachers as they compete to draw together the connections between things which, at first glance, seem utterly random, from manufacturing gunpowder to Roman mouthwash to thickening wool to marking territory.
