Heat 2, 2018

The second heat of the 2018 season of the nationwide general knowledge quiz, with Russell Davies in the questionmaster's chair.

Russell Davies asks the questions in the second heat of the 2018 tournament. Which classic novel is set in a nightmarish future in which the US has been renamed the Republic of Gilead? Which genus of plant has a name derived from the Latin for 'rock-breaker'? And what are the equivalent terms in the House of Lords for the Commons' 'ayes' and 'noes'?

The contestants face these and many other tests of their general knowledge, with a guaranteed place in the series semi-finals for today's winner.

There will also be a chance for a Brain of Britain listener to win a prize by outwitting the competitors with questions of his or her own.

Producer: Paul Bajoria.
