Heat 4, 2018
Russell Davies chairs the wide-ranging general knowledge contest, with another four competitors starting their bid to become the 2018 Brain of Britain.
In this week's contest the questions cover human anatomy, Danish literature, palaeontology, the moons of the solar system and the writers of broadsheet arts coverage - and these are just the first five questions. As always Russell Davies brings friendly rigour to the competition, with another guaranteed semi-final place awaiting the winner today.
Today's competitors are:
Mark Eves, an accountant from Bexley in London
Andrew Fanko, a freelance translator from Market Harborough in Leicestershire
Gillian Ledwick, a retired college admin officer from Brentford in Middlesex
John Robinson, an English teacher from Birmingham.
A Brain of Britain listener also stands a chance of winning a prize if the questions he or she has devised outwit all four competitors.
