Biographical Notes

The Chase, hosted by Bradley Walsh, is ITV's most popular teatime show and a must see for millions of quiz fans.

Contestants are set the task of reaching the final chase where they can win a cashpot worth thousands. However, in their way is the common enemy... The Chaser. Whether it's Anne (The Governess), Shaun (The Barrister), Mark (The Beast), Paul (The Sinnerman) or Jenny (The Vixen), the contestant will have to survive a duel with one of the finest minds in the country and then hope the survivors' collective brain power is enough to outwit the Chaser's in the show's climax.

This is less a general knowledge quiz, more a race. Get over the line and you win the pot; get caught and you lose
the lot.

Dances with Limeys - Living with the British

Reginald D. Hunter
Authors:
Reginald D. Hunter

Before he left the States for the UK back in 1997, Hunter's sister warned him not to be too smiley or friendly - 'they're suspicious of optimism'. He laughed, hugged her goodbye and merrily boarded the plane. One attempt at a chirpy greeting on the London Underground was enough to teach him the truth of his sister's words, with an entire carriage staring at their feet, or at him, in horror. The ensuing years living among the British have continued to throw up more questions - and occasionally some answers - for Hunter: experiencing weather that is best for suicidal, alcoholic, posthumously-famous poets leads him to ponder whether early Britons committed a cosmic violation that resulted in the punishment of endless rain; while the British tendency to start relationships in a vague, alcohol-induced fashion continues to prove perplexing for someone used to American dating etiquette. One of the most popular and thought-provoking comedians in the UK, and a regular on TV, Reginald D. Hunter explores the good, the bad and the ugly of living in Britain in this, his first book, Dances with Limeys.
