Brain of Britain 2019 - Congratulations
Congratulations to David Stainer on victory in todays final of Brain of Britain. In what turned out to be one of the most gripping finals in years, David swooped to victory after trailing at half time with a commanding second half performance. For eagle eyed TV viewers you may remember David Stainer from the (I think still) unbeaten Only Connect team as well as several other TV appearances. A regular on the domestic and international quizzing circuit, it will I think, be a very popular victory.
Indeed, Brain of Britain fans may have heard the name before also, as this was a 10th attempt at taking the crown and after a couple of near misses, including losing out in the year Egghead Barry Simons won the title, David proved persistence pays off.
Congratulations David Stainer and all who made the 2019 Brain of Britain final such an enjoyable one.
If you are a fan of Brain of Britain, and are not aware, the quiz book they produced a number of years ago is well worth your time. A wide range of original questions, plenty to get stuck in and perhaps one of the finest quiz books in collection.
Also, another suggested edition to the quiz book shelves, is one of the books David Stainer himself had a hand in writing...."The Only Quiz Book You Will Ever Need". Pat Gibson (TV Eggheads) and the current World Quiz Champion (Olav Bjortmont) also contribute.....
