Re(9): Cluesmiths on Only Connect

The Udense/Udinese question was I think the one and only time in all our appearances where we were docked a point in a missing vowels round - but I suppose that's not much of a comfort to you right now, Mick! ;-)

To answer Mike Lunan’s query above, yes there are a lot of breaks during recording, some of which occur when contestants offer plausible alternatives to the “correct” answers as in the case of the biblical quote question. Richard from the String Section did actually give the answer “In the beginning (14)” in real time, and in my opinion simply for being able to pluck a 14-letter biblical phrase from thin air I think they fully deserved their victory.
