• Short Summary

    Guess the objects seen in extreme close-up in this quirky quiz.

  • Description

    Commentator says "Now for a test of your skill and attention to detail with a close look at some very familiar household articles - or are they?" as we fade into extreme C/U of what looks like hundreds of red bubbles; we tilt up and down and pan over the bubblescape, then fade out. M/S of a cauliflower, with a red light shone on the florets.

    Extreme C/U of what looks like part of a sparsely-haired bug's back. Extreme C/U of what looks like rows and rows of old brown record covers; commentator says "It certainly leaves much room [mushroom!] for the imagination"; M/S of a large mushroom in a woman's hands; she turns it over so we can see the underside then starts to peel it; fade out.

    Extreme C/U of what looks like the inside of a brain, panning along sections of red 'veins'; commentator says "It's definitely the inside of someone or something". Extreme C/U of some hard crimson folds; fade out. M/S of a red cabbage in someone's hands, then it is turned round to show the inside.

    Extreme C/U of a brown, crinkly surface, with some grey kidney shaped particles scattered over it; as the camera pans along the surface, it changes in colour from brown to golden-yellow, with some deep cracks showing a white, fluffy substance beneath. Commentator: "Well, as loafing about in comfortable cinema seats can dull the senses, we'll tell you the answer - if you haven't already got it - it's a cottage loaf!" as camera pulls back to show M/S of the loaf.

    Note: Excellent quirky music accompanies this story. See CP 67 and CP 114 for further editions of this quiz.
