Next Tuesday (25th October), Pink Floyd fans who fancy a challenge should tune in to the UK's BBC 2 TV at 8pm (BST; GMT -1hr) when the legendary BBC test of knowledge, Mastermind, includes a contestant answering questions about the band's history.

For those of you unfamiliar with this show, there is a full description of the format and rules over at www.BBC.co.uk. In a nutshell, four contestants take it in turns to answer questions over two rounds, against the clock. The first two-minute round comprises questions on each contestant's chosen specialist subject, and the second two-minute round tests general knowledge.

The winner of each contest goes forward to the next knockout phase of the competition. This show is identical to the first, except that the contestants are all previous winners and they all have to answer questions on another specialist subject and, again, general knowledge.

The show is one of the most popular quiz programmes on television, having run for more than thirty years. To our knowledge, this is the first time that Pink Floyd has been the subject of the specialist round. For fun, we will post the questions posed during the show on this site, next week, following the show. How will you do?

BBC 2 can be picked up, via satellite and other methods, across a large area of Northern Europe.
