Heat 6, 2019
The notoriously tough general knowledge quiz comes from Salford this week, with Russell Davies asking the questions
Russell Davies asks the questions in the sixth of this year's heats. Who were the architects of Paris's Pompidou Centre? Which superhero was played by Chadwick Boseman in 2018? Which 20th century Prime Minister had the shortest tenure in office?

The competitors are:
Bob Currie, a legal investigator from Bramall in Stockport

Mike Meakin, a hospital operating department practitioner from Harrogate
