This Sunday I'll be posting the first round of questions in the quest to find Dm's Beatles Mastermind.
Each week, for ten weeks, I'll be posting ten questions in ten separate categories, including pictures, video's, and soundclips. Some will be easy, and some pretty tough, so you'll need to get your thinking caps on.
The first six categories are straight question and answer rounds. 'The Big Picture' will feature someone, or something that you have to identify. For instance, it may be an album cover, or someone associated with the group. 'Name That Tune' will consist of a video of The Fabs, but without the sound. You have to identify the song. In 'Beat The Intro' you'll be given a short soundclip of a song intro. But keep your ears pinned back because they are very short. 'The Big Finish' will be a difficult 10 point question, to sort the men from the boys!
Here are the categories. Good luck!Beginnings

Ten points will be awarded for 'The Big Finish' question. A further five points will be awarded to anyone who answers all questions correctly.Please do not post your answers on the forum. PM them to me with the heading 'Mastermind', no later than 12 noon GMT on Sunday.
