The Quiz programme Mastermind and today’s Specialist subject of Nutrient Management Planning.

The popular British television Quiz programme Mastermind, featured a big, black, ominous looking leather chair that all the contestants had to sit in while answering all their tricky questions on General Knowledge and their specialist subjects.  Clive Myrie, the creator of the show drew his inspiration for the staging, from when he was a prisoner of the Gestapo during the Second World War. Where the main lights are dimmed and the one bright spotlight shines directly at each individual contestant while they sit in the chair and are sternly interrogated by the host.
