This photograph is from the files of the old Herald Newspaper. It shows the team from the Knoll School for Boys Hove, taking part in the Southern Television Quiz show Full Marks in I should think 1958/9.
Beaten by the girls
The show was recorded in the old late and much lamented red gothic Hove Town Hall. Kenneth Horne was the avuncular quiz master. The Knoll Boys lost to Mile Oak Girl’s school. I can identify two members of the team. The youngest is myself, Ian Beck, at the other end the eldest is Barry Tutte one of the school’s rare ‘aesthetes’, as for the boy in glasses I sadly have forgotten his name, although his father taught at the school I think.
Where is the girl’s team
The boy with the wild fifties style hair I am afraid I cannot recall his name either (it was along time ago) I wonder if anyone else remembers the occasion, or has a similar picture of the girl’s team? The prize for being the sad losers was a book token for one guinea which I spent commendably on The Compleet Molesworth (sic) by Geoffrey Willans and Ronald Searle and I still have it.
