Complete works of the Bard? It's the nearest thing in English lit to the Bible. Two books you might be allowed to bring with you on Robben Island Discs!

Re: Crosswords

Pete this is a tenuous guess. Gateshead = Ga. Crux (Southern Cross) is on the flag of new zealand home of the all blacks. So is it Gacrux?

Thanks Chris for the clarity of that. I have been on to Arko since and things are sorted now. So see you (and the redoubtable Jane) next week in either Tallinn or Tartu or both.

Regards
Dave

Re: Continuous Quiz: Quick Fire

This one is trickier than it sounds John but from memory I think it must be in nine horizontal rows of 6, 5, 6, 5, 6, 5, 6, 5 and 6. It adds up to 50 stars that way so hopefully that is the arrangement.

Re: Continuous Quiz: Movies

Yes it is a funny film. As it's Halloween I am going to ask a slightly grimmer one. Which actor who is first to die on screen in Once Upon A Time In the West actually killed himself during the film's production by jumping off a roof while still wearing his character's costume?
