This is a bit of a strange request, but there we are, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. I’ve been trying to compile a list of venues where the Mastermind Grand Finals were all recorded. Magnus Magnusson’s wonderful “I’ve Started So I’ll Finish” has been invaluable for the first 25 years, but there are still a few I haven’t been able so far to find out. For the Magnus years these are: -
As for the Radio 4 years – 1998 – 2000, I am presuming that they might have been recorded in Broadcasting House in London – but I don’t know. So if anyone can put me right on that I’d be grateful.
Discovery Mastermind I haven’t a clue – again, if you know I’d be really grateful if you could drop me a line. As for the Humphrys years, well I know where 2003 was filmed, and also 2007/8 and 2009. As for the others, well, I’m guessing that prior to 2013 they might have been filmed in TV Centre in White City in London – but I don’t know. Likewise with 2013 and 14, I guess that it was in media City in Salford – but I don’t know. So if you do know any of these, could you just drop me a line? I’d be really grateful.
