42 Technology named as Only Connect Wall Night winners 2011
Three engineers from 42 Technology have successfully pitched their skills in lateral thinking and their wits to win a one-off TV quiz that was broadcast on Monday 12 December. Simon Jelley, Bruce Lin and John Loveluck (shown from left to right) were named as BBC Four’s ‘Only Connect’ Wall Night Winners 2011 and handed their trophy by show presenter Victoria Coren.
42 Technology, competing as The Technologists, was one of eight teams specially selected from the last five series of ‘Only Connect’ to compete in a single tournament of Connecting Wall. The game involves rearranging a board of 16 apparently random words into four rows of connected items against the clock.
In the final round they were faced with 16 three or four letter abbreviations including PSX, VCS, NES and SMS, which they correctly identified as acronyms for home gaming consoles.
