The photo is of Stephanie Cole - I think she was born in Solihull. She played Dr Mason in Tenko. The she was Diana Trent in waiting For God.

Neither would I without Phil's clues and a search for "Dr Mason and Miss Trent" - that was desperation as individually they gave nothing.

Well done to those who took part and managed to get a correct answer, commiserations to those who took part and didn’t manage to get a right answer, but there is always next year.
Please tell me if you thought this quiz too hard, it always difficult to judge what is hard and what is easy so advice is always welcome.

I don't think it was too hard - made you think which I enjoy - although I was glad of the hints helping towards the end. As Lyn says - I learned some things.

I thought it was a very good quiz, personally I only knew the Carl Wayne picture but no point in making it too easy!
As I mentioned before, it was interesting and I've learned some new things, thanks.

Phil,

I agree with Lyn & Janice. I left Brum almost 58 years ago and when I left, there were many areas of the City that I didn't know at all. Plus I am an old geezer and if I manage to score half a point, I'm very happy! Thanks for taking the time to organise them.

Maurice :)
