    London.

    In this edition of a quirky quiz, audience is asked to guess tools from a toolbox in extreme close-up.

    M/S of a tool box. Voiceover introduces the audience to the rules of the game.

    Extreme C/U shot of a sharp silver thing. The image stays on screen for several seconds. Cut back on the toolbox. A hand appears and puts a screwdriver back in the toolbox. Voiceover concludes "Yes, you're right - a screwdriver."

    Extreme C/U of the next object - a silver diagonal stripe across the screen. The image stays on the screen for several seconds. Cut to a hand putting a spanner back into the tool box. Voiceover concludes "Too easy, perhaps... an ordinary spanner."

    Extreme C/U of the next object - hardly visible shadows in the dark. As the screen lightens up, something looking like a half of a boxer (street fight weapon) appears. "Here's another clue" - tells the voiceover as an equally confusing picture appears on the screen. Voiceover claims that this one is "a little more difficult." Hand appears and places a small saw back into the toolbox.

    Extreme C/U of the following object - a silver circle appears on the screen. This time a hand with hammer appears.

    Extreme C/U of the next object - a pair of pincers. The last object in this edition of the quirky quiz - a reel of fuse wire.

    Note: see CP 59 and CP 67 for earlier editions of this quiz.
