The London son applied for tickets for us to go to a recording of Mastermind in Manchester. We were lucky enough to get two tickets for two episodes being recorded back-to-back on Wednesday evening. It was all very interesting and since we were given seats behind the contestants (just behind the fourth contestant) I'm sure we'll get our moment of fame when the programmes are aired. On television, the black chair looks daunting and I've always felt really sorry for the contestants - but it's not like that at all, it's all very cheery and amusing, with a warm-up man cracking gags at every opportunity. We were even handed Kit Kats and orange juice between recordings. One contestant fell off the stage while sitting in his chair, but I'm pretty sure they won't show that!
