Re: Only Connect quiz

1) The Apprentice theme tune - The Lion King II
2) Rudolf Hess: 120 - Holly from Red Dwarf: 6000
3) Act of Parliament - Torsion pendulum
4) Feynman: sprinkler - Bell: Spaceship
5) Answering pendant - Wally

If I didn't make it clear before these are all separate questions.

1) The Apprentice theme tune
2) Rudolf Hess: 120
3) Act of Parliament
4) Feynman: sprinkler
