Re: Countdown in Leicester (CoLei) - Saturday 30 August 2008

Hello boys and girls An open request to you all. If you're coming to Leicester at the end of August and have something extra to bring to the party, like an anecdote or a puzzle that would otherwise make for a good end-of-first-half slot on the airwaves, I'd be interested to hear from you. You can ge...

Re: How Bevins changed Britain

I was gonna put something on your Facebook wall but it seems someone else got there first!

If 4oD isn't working, try the new Watch Online facility?

Re: Pro Footballer on Countdown Today

ITV Central News East profiled Neil McKenzie's initial success on Monday evening. Aswell as some VT of him solving a numbers game and the conundrum, the piece tried to show the guy as an all round brainiac, which he clearly had a laugh going along with - rattling through a Times crossword, and picki...

Re: COUNTDOWN IN LEICESTER (CoLei) - SATURDAY 30 AUGUST 2008

Boys and girls If you have got holidays or work commitments around the time and you're not sure if you can attend, do get in touch on the email as soon as you know either way and that will help with the logistics of the event. Just to clarify, the distinction between this and other Countdown tournam...

Re: Des Chiffres et Des Lettres

Yes I had heard that une anglaise by the name of Patricia would be appearing. From all the people I have asked - tournament circuit regulars through to programme production staff - it appears she is the first British person to appear on the show. And if she actually isn't, she certainly is the first...

Re: Des Chiffres et Des Lettres

The "chiffres" rounds all last 45 seconds but all duels - including the "calcul mental" as shown above - last 30 seconds. What happens here is that Laurent hands over to either Arielle or Bertrand, who explain that the duel will be a mental arithmetic exercise. (S)he thanks the viewer who sent it in...

Re: CoLei

Ok chaps, thanks for your various messages.

The jury will now retire to consider a date as it looks for a suitable venue. I will report back as soon as I have something credible to propose to you all, and hope that this won't be too long.

Cheers

CoLei

Hi chaps Well, CoLei is a subject I'm coming back to far later than I would've liked, and it has been mentioned and queried by people in various posts in different places. However, we've not had a proper thread to discuss it and I would like to see definite expressions of interest (or otherwise) bef...

Re: Des Chiffres et Des Lettres

What, this thread? Or the tournament circuit et al in France? In the meantime, to come back to Mikey's original points: - You could indeed move to France - they're a nice bunch; - Why just go for a job that doesn't involve doing anything at teatime? With the money you earn from a regular job, you ca...
