Alan in the Black Chair
The show was filmed at the BBC Media City in Salford on July 24th, and Alan’s specialist subject was mountaineering on Everest. This was chosen as he is a keen mountaineer with a lifelong fascination for the mountain and has climbed in the region on a number of occasions.
Adhering to the rules, Alan will not be informing anybody of whether he won or lost before the show is broadcast, but has stated that he reached “a very respectable score”. The date of broadcast has not yet been fixed, but the series begins it’s run in mid-August.
Update: The show was broadcast on 5th October. For the next seven days it is available here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b01n1z1x/
