Us non-Brits may be unaware that exists in the UK a quiz show called University Challenge. In case the name doesn’t give it away, the show is exactly what it sounds like: teams from competing universities engage in a battle of wits by way of attempting to answer trivia questions.
I mention it because on last night’s episode, three questions about Iron Maiden were posed to students from Downing College in Cambridge. They didn’t get any of them right… but I bet most of you will! The questions were (courtesy of loudersound.com)…
- The five word title of which 1982 album appears in the book of revelations after the words here is wisdom let him who hath understanding count what?
- Four words that appear before Thy Kingdom Come in St Luke’s gospel form the title of which track from Number of the Beast concerning a condemned man?
- Which track from Number of the Beast shares its title with a 1960s television series filmed largely in an Italian village in North Wales?
And the answers, of course, are…
- Number of the Beast
- “Hallowed Be Thy Name”
- “The Prisoner”
You can watch video of Downing College’s deepest shame below… I’ve got it all cued up for ya and everything:
