You can't win any money on Only Connect, so I won't be applying, but the show is popular with quizzers and the production team looking for new blood for their 5th series.
Here's the text of the press release they sent me and if you do apply, do
me a favour and tell them Dr Paul sent you.
Victoria Coren presents the fifth series of the popular BBC Four quiz show ONLY CONNECT where, as in life itself, knowledge will only take you so far: patience and lateral thinking are also vital.
It’s all about making connections between things which may appear, at first glance, not to be connected at all.
We’re looking for teams of three players who share a common passion,
ability or profession, to pool their combined wits to solve fiendish conundrums and vexing puzzles.
ONLY CONNECT: the quiz where general knowledge meets lateral thinking.
If you applied for a previous series, but were unsuccessful, you are welcome to apply again for the new series.
Auditions will be held in regional centres throughout the UK.
All applicants must be aged 18+ and U.K. Residents.
