5 D. Who famously called Brian Aldridge from The Archers a 'shi*' live on air?

(a) Anna Ford, (b) Jennie Bond, (c) Jenni Murray

9 C. What was the singer Jeff Buckley alleged to have been listening to (and singing along with) at the moment he drowned in the Mississippi river in May 1997?

    5D's a tricky one.

    The answer must be Anna Ford although this link says that she said it about a different Archers character. Too much of a coincidence to be wrong? I would've thought so.

    JamJar...First of all, thanks for sharing your answers with us! One of the questions is still bothering me...your answer to the question "Which BBC messageboard gets the most postings?" - where did you find that out? I've visited the messageboards and can't seem to find one called "news". Can anyone verify this?

    EDIT: Btw the answer to the buckley question is (b) 'Whole Lotta Love' by Led Zeppelin

    I certainly haven't got the definitive answer to the messageboard question (maybe JamJar can point us in the right direction) but it would appear that 606 is the actual answer. The following link shows it as being the most popular. The only thing that suggests that this maybe is wrong now is the time that the information was given. 606 is still hugely popular so I suspect that it still the correct answer.

    Alias I think you are correct, the news board was an 'educated' guess !

    I am not sure if the 'Pet Shop Boys' answer is correct, does anyone have any views on this one?
