1001 Things You Should Know

Series 1-Episode 4

Series 1-Episode 4



Sandi Toksvig is the genial host for this daily quiz show in which three contestants start by answering a fairly simple question on a chosen subject (perhaps the title of the first book in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy). This is the stuff you’re meant to know. This unlocks a slightly harder question (say, the name of Larsson’s heroine) that, if you answer correctly, can win you a small amount of cash.

You don’t need a University Challenge level of general knowledge to play along and it’s a pleasant enough way to keep your brain cells active without getting a headache — although the garish set might give you a migraine.


Countdown presenter Nick Hewer and Hollyoaks star Jennifer Metcalfe are among the famous faces challenging three more contestants to answer questions they consider to have common-knowledge answers. Presented by Sandi Toksvig.
