Daphne's Daily Quiz
(The Almost Impossible Quiz)

Hi - I'm Daphne Fowler and I've been an avid quizzer for the past 40 years. In 1997, I was the last woman to win the title 'Brain of Britain' and for 10 years I was one of the 'Eggheads' on the BBC2 programme until I retired from the show in 2013 at the age of 74, due to family commitments.

This quiz, which is intended for serious quizzers, was inspired by the late, great, woman quizzer, Irene Thomas, who wrote 'The Almost Impossible Quiz Book' several years ago. The questions come from my database and are more or less divided into 'I didn't know that!' or 'I ought to know that!' There is a new quiz every day, simply because I liked to learn new facts on a daily basis. I hope you'll enjoy the quizzes......

From the 1st of January 2016, I shall be adding the usual quiz, followed by the answers separately, the same quiz but in a different format - that is, with the answers immediately after the questions. Personally, this was always the way I learnt new facts and it appears several other quizzers also do so.
