BBC 2 "Eggheads" Programme
We have received a communication from Mr. Martyn Bon on behalf of the "Eggheads" quiz show production team.
"12 Yard Productions are currently looking for vibrant and diverse teams to take part in the 12th series of the popular BBC2 quiz show Eggheads. Eggheads is a game in which 5 members of the public face general knowledge goliaths and try to beat them for a cash prize. When the Eggheads win, the money rolls over to the next show. Often a huge amount of money can be at stake.
Each team will consist of 5 team members and 1 standby, so we need teams of at least 6 people. We are holding nationwide auditions over the coming weeks and are keen to find teams from all over the UK."
If members of the Meccano community are interested in putting together such a team, Mr Bon suggests you contact him on 01427 2915 or firstname.lastname@example.org

According to http://www.toynewsmag.com/news/28206/Nikko-in-administration
Nikko UK is now under administration by Grant Thornton. I'm not sure of the implications, or what that means for the Japanese parent company. Probably not much. But will Meccano sets suddenly go for cheap-cheap in the UK?

Unfortunately, due to the heavy spamming of our forums, it is now necessary to stop non members from posting. Members of Meccanoscene are still able to post as usual but will be required to be logged in to the site to do so.
This will entail no change to most of you but will hopefully remove the constant abuse of our forums.
If you are not a member but wish to post in the forum please join by clicking here.
We now have over 400 members, why not help us to forge a comprehensive online Meccano community. Send us Articles, News, Links, Reviews & Events for publication on Meccanoscene or just chat with our other members in the forum!

Please note that the “Submitted Question” facility is provided to enable the creation of a “User Generated” list of “Frequently Asked Questions” to supplement the “Pre-defined” FAQs. Over time, this FAQ area will grow into a searchable database of technical questions and answers which will be useful to future Meccanoscene members.
Please ensure that your question is appropriate to this aim. Take a look at the FAQ area to see the kind of question involved. Short term questions relating to current site problems, times of exhibitions, etc. should be directed to a suitable section of the public FORUM. (Meccanoscene site difficulties are dealt with in the Technical Support / Support area.)
Remember that the answer to the “Submitted Question” will have to be researched by the Meccanoscene team, with valued assistance from members of the metal construction community. That can take some time. When the answer has been completed, it will be added to the FAQ area under “Answers to Submitted Questions” Look there for our response.
If the answer does not wholly meet your needs, you can have recourse to the public FORUM. The answer will usually include a suggestion for an appropriate FORUM section to which any follow-up might be addressed. Remember that any question in the public FORUM sections can be responded to immediately by any individual reading that section, thus directing your query to a much wider community.
