London, United Kingdom
When Frank Muir and John Amis compete against Ian Wallace and Denis Norden in answering questions based on music (opera, jazz, lite classical, dance, and even birdsong), it is not just a battle of wits - and of wit. They have encyclopedias for brains. They enjoy themselves and each other’s company. Their mood is infectious, and the studio audience catches it right from the word go. They are among that rare and vanquishing breed of minds and spirits in England, who as one observer noted, “...have been everywhere, know everyone, and heard everything.” Their anecdotes are vivid and spontaneous, their personalities charming and compelling.
