In 1999 (I think?), Bill McKaig, a Presbyterian Minister from Scotland, recorded a maximum score of 433 points. He answered 40 out of 40 questions correctly. This was never beaten and is never likely to be, seeing as 15-1 vanished from our screens a few years ago. Don't ask me who the bloke with the pseudo 'Hugh Cornwell' haircut in the middle is though???? (more)

I am that 'Martin Penny'. Uploaded this ages ago and now at 150k views. Bill was a lovely fella and drank me under the table in the hotel the night before. Lifetime ambition fulfilled thanks to Swanny..., a mention on TMS. Albeit in a round about kind of way.....x

I felt sorry for you and Alison. Like a couple of snooker players forced to sit while the other clears the table with a maximum break.

Its back on our screens but the chances of this score being matched is between slim and none.

Well done swanny.

Daphne Fowler came close to doing the same. Just one point off having missed a question in round 2.

Now that is something special. We have this format ( bit changed ) in Poland since 1994 and it is called One out of ten :) Anyway in-game formula is similar, also 40 questions in final. There were few brainiacs in programs history, but nobody did 40 questions in a row. Type "Dominik Rauer" if want to see our format and a guy who was on right track.
