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.
Two points will be given for every correct answer, unless specified otherwise. For instance, in the case of a two part question, points will be awarded accordingly. 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 1', no later than 12 noon GMT on Sunday 23 March.
You may PM me any corrections to your answers as long as I receive them before the closing time of that particular round. Round 1 finishes next Sunday 23 March at 12 noon GMT. Just send the corrected answer(s) not the whole thing.
Any queries can be made on the other thread: Beatles Mastermind - Notes & Queries. http://www.dmbeatles.com/forums/b-games/m-1204850121/
