I have pretty exacting standards when it comes to TV. Does it have aliens? Does it have guns? If the answers are yes and yes, chances are I'll watch it. One yes and one no is a maybe. Two no's make a no-no.
Still I might make an exception for the next series of Eggheads, a quiz that doesn't feature aliens or guns. Why? Because the production company is trying to recruit a team of chess players to take part in it. And what's more, those chess players could be you.
Interested? Maybe in the prize of £1,000? Auditions are tomorrow, and then again in January. Details are here, or alternatively you can email Olivia Hamblin from the production company for more information (who adds in an aside that "one of our resident Eggheads is a big fan of chess.") Background on the show is also available via Wikipedia.
Good luck if you decide to go for it!
