Number five, which IMHO is much harder than any of the ones that have gone before.

Numbers six, seven and eight. 6 and 7 were solved pretty quickly. 8 is still resisting arrest. So is number three, for that matter.

Are they all different channels? ITV, BBC, BBC 2, C4? For the third
COUNTDOWN or THE TUBE? Which is better? There's only one way to find out....

Call it a draw :)

Question 11. I thought it was easy, but no one's cracked it yet.

Or attempted it, for that matter.
