Eggheads is a BBC Two quiz game show and one of the few programmes I watch regularly (BBC2 6pm). The Eggheads are a team, made up of five British quiz champions who compete against a new panel of challengers each episode. On the 28 September 2007 broadcast, the Eggheads lost after a 74 game winning streak, and the challenging team (Beer Today, Gone Tomorrow, a group of young students from Oxford Brookes University) won £75,000 — the highest prize won on the show so far. They won despite only two of them being in the final round versus four Eggheads (minus Chris). The quiz champions who compete on the show are:

Kevin Ashman: winner of British Quiz Championship, European Quiz Championship, World Quizzing Championships, Fifteen to One, Mastermind, Brain of Britain and Mind Sports Olympiad.

CJ De Mooi: winner of BrainTeaser, 100% and The Weakest Link as well as having been Mensa chess champion.

Daphne Fowler: winner of Fifteen to One, Brain of Britain and Going for Gold.

Chris Hughes: winner of Mastermind, International Mastermind and Brain of Britain.

Judith Keppel: first British winner of one million pounds on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

The presenter is Dermot Murnaghan.
