Librarians on Test the Nation  
Test the Nation is a TV quiz show with an interactive element - viewers can take part in the quiz online or record their scores with pen and paper. For the last two years (in New Zealand) it's run as an IQ test. This year, it's being run as a general knowledge quiz, with a focus on New Zealand topics. One of the gimmicks of the show is that they have different groups competing against each other. In the past this has included blondes, sportspeople (several of my former workmates were in the team), teachers - that sort of thing.

This year, they have asked "nurses, fitness gurus, farmers, librarians, trades and bankers". My girlfriend is part of the librarian team. Here's hoping they don't let us down...
