The Saturday Quiz
Heads on Sticks with Tosh Greenslade and Stephen Hall
Stephen Hall is a former Grand Champion from the television quiz show "Temptation" (which was the name they chose when they re-booted "Sale of the Century"), so the expectations were quite high that he would do well at this quiz.
He had plenty of help from his "Shaun Micallef's Mad as Hell" fellow cast member, Tosh Greenslade who is a self-confessed fact spouter and has many personal connections to a few of the questions.
They barely put a foot wrong across politics, geography and linguistics... sport isn't their strong suit. But they get there in the end.
