Double quiz appearance today for Pendreigh

HE’S better known as one of Scotland’s best-known film reviewers, but, today, Brian Pendreigh makes not just one but two appearances on national quiz shows.

By sheer coincidence, he appears in Brain of Britain, on BBC Radio 4, at 3pm. And then he later appears on the BBC Two show, Eggheads.

A former semi-finalist on Mastermind, among the prizes he has won is a share of £5,000 on STV’s Postcode Challenge, in a team that included his son, Ewen.

In The Scotsman Magazine, published with the Saturday edition of the paper, he wrote about his love of quizzes: For the Buzz.
