Many thanks to Darren for the pictures and Leprechaun for finding a way of finding a grid without the ball.

I will enter having seen some of these pictures in a previous life.
In the unlikely event I win , feel free to demand a stewards enquiry.

The deadline has been extended a week. We have had a number of entries and spotting the ball has not been easy. You will not need a high score to win. A reminder you can submit as many entries as you like.

I'm only here for the tele

That's OK, Beefy. Just apply Tippex.

One LP (no not that one) of my youth claimed to be the first half of a recording of a live show. If (the liner notes said) you carefully scraped off the surface of the vinyl you would then be able to play the second half.

It was National Lampoon's album Lemmings, all about the Woodshock festival. Easily the funniest thing they ever did as a collective, I think.

Well that was not easy. Well done on JW's winning one. I take it you didn't Google it.

During the season a minuscule prize will be presented.

What happened next, hmm.

As a taster " Kev said " It looks like the title is going to Ciderland. What happened next?

There was one hell of an end of season party in the Tavern because something happened?

JW won with just one correct answer?!

Even Joey ESsex would do better than that on 'Mastermind'

Top mark 1? It really would have been worth putting in an entry of complete guesswork!

This was all a bit of fun but it reminds me of a maths exam at school when half the pupils got zero out of 200. Top mark was well under a hundred. The exam had been said by the Head of Department and it was painfully obvious that he had set it at a ridiculously high level either to show how clever he was or to show up our teacher, neither of which were good motives. The result was that most of the class lost all interest in the subject as it was clearly only for those as clever as the Head of Department. It was a grammar school too so for any reasonable test the majority of the class should not have been struggling.

My answer for the first photo was correct, but I was a long way off for some of the others!
