Only Con­nect BBC2, 8.30pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

If you’ve not seen this quiz show be­fore dur­ing ei­ther its run on BBC Four or pre­vi­ous se­ries on BBC Two, and want to gauge how hard it is, here’s a clue - you should prob­a­bly re­gard Univer­sity Chal­lenge as a warm-up. That’s mainly be­cause Only Con­nect doesn’t just test your gen­eral knowl­edge, it also chal­lenges your lat­eral think­ing as the con­tes­tants try to work out what links a set of ap­par­ently ran­dom clues. The first brave souls to take up the chal­lenge are the Op­er­a­tional Re­searchers and the Clue­smiths, who have a day job com­pil­ing cross­words.
