Watching the Detectives.

May 13th, 2022 by

There are so many cop shows on the television, both homegrown and imported from the USA, but can you name the programme from the star and the detective he played. Well this quiz will give you a chance to find out!! Using the same format as the TV Westerns quiz I posted late last year I name the star and the part he/she played and you need to name the programme he appeared in.

In What Year Platinum Jubilee

March 26th, 2022 by

How much of the last seventy years can you remember? Here’s a quiz to test that knowledge, in it I name an event and all you have to do is name the year that the event took place in. Just to make it a little easier all the events took place in the last seventy years, no years are repeated and I give you a list of years to choose from. I’m sure you will remember the events but can you remember the year in which they occurred?



What’s Up Doc?

March 8th, 2022 by

Do you know what “bruising” is called in the medical profession and do you know what Otalgia is more commonly known as? If so you’ll do well in this quiz as all you need to do is name the common name for the disease or medical conditions in the list. Twenty five to get and as usual some are very easy but one or two are stinkers. Good luck.

Battles and Wars

January 20th, 2022 by

A history paper round for a change. In this quiz I name a battle and you have to name the war or conflict in which it was fought. To help things along I have given the year in which the battle took place . As always some are on the easy side but others you may find a bit tricky, Good Luck.




All About the Bass.

January 5th, 2022 by

Generally they stand at the back of the group and regularly go unnoticed but without them most pop music wouldn’t sound great. To whom am I referring …the bass guitar player of course. His (or her) driving beat forms the heartbeat of the song but many of them remain unknown. How many of these famous bass players do you know and can you place them in the correct groups? To make it slightly easier I’ve given a list of the bands in which they gained fame. As always some are very easy but you might find some of them a little more taxing.



Christmas Shopping 1975.

November 17th, 2021 by

The Argos catalogue, generally published in the months leading up to Christmas were excellent for children to peruse and choose their Christmas presents from the many toys contained within. Sadly no longer printed an Amazon wishlist is probably todays comparison.

In this quiz I have gone back to the 1975 Argos catalogue and listed some of the popular toys from that year, all you have to do is to name the price of that item. To make things a little bit simpler I have listed all the prices so you can cross them off as you go down the list. It’s frightening how some prices have gone up since the mid-1970s!!



Christmas Radio and TV Times (Picture quiz).

November 17th, 2021 by

A highlight of Christmas when I was growing up was receiving the Radio and TV Times for the festive period and seeing what movies and Christmas specials were going to grace our screens in that year. In this quiz I have taken some famous (and some less so) covers to see if you can name the year they were published. To make it a little easier I have listed the year below. Good luck and I hope some of the covers bring back some happy memories.
