About this deal
And, for the show’s final, Gary admits he tried to select pop band Girls Aloud as his specialist subject – so that he could meet one of the girl group’s sexy singers. When bosses at the show rejected his request, he opted for ‘whales, dolphins and porpoises’ as his chosen topic – taking the title by five points. Mastermind International – BBC One London – 28 February 1979". BBC Genome Project . Retrieved 7 November 2014. As under the 2015 Regulations, “commenced” is likely to mean “advertised”. Learning lessons from the transition to the 2015 Regulations, the new Act will make transitional application for procurements which are “non-competitive”– for example those that are exempt because they are “in-house” contracts or “joint collaborations”. Any non-competitive procurement entered into later than 3 months after implementation date will be subject to the rules of the new regime, unless a Voluntary Ex-Ante Transparency Notice (VEAT) has already been published for the procurement.

Mastermind International – BBC One London – 3 June 1982". BBC Genome Project . Retrieved 7 November 2014. So, Myrie got to keep his job – and I may have to upgrade his Mastermind score by one point. Still, five points on the subject of yourself – not great, is it? What has been the most memorable specialist subject for you across the series so far since you’ve been the host?Yes, occasionally someone concludes ‘it’s not for me’ – usually these are people who have been persuaded along by someone else. Occasionally someone can’t get the support they need from their employer but most people who come to a Taster Day are keen to do more. The reality is, if you’re going to participate in a 20-day programme spread out over five months, it takes a bit of planning. In his early routines Bill Bailey would often parody the Mastermind music, finding it very sinister. He would then play the music on keyboard with an over-the-top hellish sounding climax. In the last episode of " Is It Bill Bailey?" he followed on from this performance with a sketch where he was a contestant on Mastermind, and it was implied that his specialist subject was the microwave cooking instructions on supermarket ready meals. As the camera panned out it became evident that the chair itself was on a platter, slowly turning in a giant microwave oven.

Gascoigne was also intensely telegenic, if in a slightly eccentric way. His repertoire of encouraging or consolatory smiles or grimaces, nods and head anglings were relished by Griff Rhys Jones – who played ‘Bambi’ Gascoigne in a 1984 episode of The Young Ones – and Mark Gatiss, whose portrayal in the 2006 college comedy movie Starter For Ten introduced Bamber to generations for whom the surname was most associated with the footballer, Paul. The presenter’s unassuming charisma was a good fit for a quiz show that was visual in multiple ways, with its trompe-l’œil (a word which was more than once a starter round answer) effect of the teams sitting on top of each other (in reality, they were side by side on the studio floor). The appearances of the competitors allowed younger viewers (at least white and middle-class ones) to see people on TV who unusually looked like them – while parents and grandparents could jeer about the need to visit a barber or clothes shop. Myrie, 56, takes over the presenter’s chair vacated by John Humphrys next Monday. When we meet, he has just returned from Belfast, having recorded 28 shows – six months of television – in six days. He grew up with Mastermind, which will be 50 years old next year. “I watched Magnus Magnusson on the telly in the 70s in Bolton.”In a recent meeting where we were examining the buying patterns of our clients, one of my colleagues asked me, ‘Why would someone come to a Taster Day or to Module One of NLP Practitioner training and then not complete the journey?’ Interesting question… The winners advance to the next round, for which they must choose a different specialised subject. In the early years of the programme, finalists were allowed to reuse their first-round subjects in the grand final. However, from 1992 onwards, the finalists are required to choose a third subject. The winner of the final of the BBC version is declared "Mastermind" for that year and is the only contestant to receive a prize, in the form of a cut glass engraved bowl. During Magnus Magnusson's tenure as presenter, the trophy was specially manufactured by Caithness Glass. A special guest would always be invited to present the trophy to the winner, with the exception of the final edition in 1997, in which Magnusson presented it himself. Every trophy used by the main series has been made by Scottish artist Denis Mann.  Versions [ edit ]
