This compilation of questions and answers from the BBC's most popular TV quiz show collects all the specialized and general knowledge questions and their answers put to Mastermind contestants.

When grand inquisitor Magnus Magnusson first watched the three Mastermind finalists take their place in the infamous black chair, little did he and they realise that they would be part of a British institution. For twenty years competitors from all walks of life braved the spotlight to have their nerve as well as their specialized and general knowledge tried and tested. Weeks later, after many hard-fought rounds, four contestants competed for the coveted title Mastermind and the traditional Caithness Glass bowl. This book collects all the specialized and general knowledge questions-and their answers-put to those Mastermind contestants.
