BBC RADIO FOUR TODAY PROGRAMME PUZZLE BOOK 2

FOREWORD BY SARAH SANDS    Book Number: 90308    Product format: Paperback

How do you move an Arctic fox, a rock ptarmigan and some polar willow? This country is blessed with quick-witted coders, mathematicians and puzzle solvers who are as sharp as pins at 7:47am, the moment when the Today presenters take a breath and challenge the nation to a riddle or a disguised sum. The Today Programme broadcasts regularly from universities, and a highlight is for a professor or student to read out the puzzle they have created. The live audience is up for trying, even though the spirit can sometimes be more willing than the mind. The maths wizard Bobby Seagull is an indefatigable puzzle maker, delighting audiences with his scenarios, often involving football fixtures. With more than 250 questions set by puzzle masters from around the world, questions include The Notting Hill Carnival, Strictly Come Dancing, Babysitting During Christmas Dinner, The Chipping Norton Literary Festival, to SS Great Britain and of course the Today Studio. It even includes conundrums compiled by top scientists working on tackling climate change. What could be a better reminder of global priorities than a puzzle about polar bears? 250 conundrums, 288pp in large softback with appendices and maps.
