University Challenge

Watched an enjoyable programme on the history of University Challenge. This looked at the changing face of the concept and students in general over the years, with the class system at the centre.

One of the special editions was a contest between the CBI and the Royal Opera House, which reminded me of the jaw-dropping choices available for patrons wanting tickets on its website. Under 'title', alongside the usual Mr, Mrs, Miss and Dr are Countess, Baron, Deacon, HRH and Rabbi.

Well, if you've been given a title why not use it?
