Buzzer Questions Set #3

A few more I used in the recent buzzer quiz set at York. Couple of these went unanswered but most were answered before the question was finished....

“Calm Down Dear…” was Michael Winners famous catchphrase. The saying originated in adverts he starred in for which insurance company?

The Sunny Coast Skate in Australia began this Internet craze and by March 2013 4000 related videos per day were being posted on Youtube.  The Videos usually last about 30 seconds long and each one contains the same song.  Usually the video begins with one person helmeted or masked dancing alone to the song but then cuts to scenes of everyone in the room dancing wildly. What is the two word name given to this internet dance craze which is based on a song by Baauer?


In which English was Britain’s most famous terrorist, Guy Fawkes, born and educated?


One half of this famous musical duo recently released her autobiography entitled “Bedsit Disco Queen”. The duo got their names from a shop selling furniture and in 1988 released “Idelwild” which proved to be their breakthrough album. After a period of quiet they were given a new lease of life with the release of “Missing” in 1995. Which musical duo consists of Ben Watt and Tracy Thorn?


Born in Kenya in 1985, this man won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympic Games for Great Britain. He was runner up to Bradley Wiggins in the Tour de France last year and this year will lead team sky in the race. Name this cyclist?


Despite KGB efforts to stop him, which famous ballet dancer defected from the Soviet Union in 1961?



Name this island. On average 1.5 million tourists visit this island every year which is a greater amount than the actual population.  The flag of this island country is the only one in the world to contain an outline of the country on it and in 1974 Nikos Sampson led a famous coup here. Popular destinations on the island include Larnaca and Limassol and its capital is Nicosia.
