Good evening.

Tonight is indeed

a unique occasion

in the history of television.

We are very privileged

and deeply honoured

to have with us

in the studio Karl Marx,

founder of modern socialism

and author of the

communist manifesto,

Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov,

better known to the world

as Lenin,

leader of

the Russian revolution,

writer, statesman, and

father of modern communism,

Che Guevara,

the Cuban guerrilla leader,

and mao tse-tung,

leader of the Chinese

communist party since 1949.

The first question

is for you, Karl Marx.

The Hammers.

The Hammers is the nickname

of what English football team?

The Hammers?

No? Well, bad luck there, Karl.

So we'll go to you, Che.

Che Guevara, Coventry City

last won the F.A. Cup

in what year?


I'll throw it open.

Coventry City last won

the F.A. Cup in what year?

I'm not surprised

you didn't get that.

It was, in fact,

a trick question.

Coventry City have never won

the F.A. Cup.

With the scores all equal,

we go on to our second round.

Lenin, it's your starter for 10.

Teddy Johnson and Pearl Carr

Song Contest in 1959.

of the song?

Anybody? No?


Yes, mao tse-tung?

Sing, little birdie?

Yes, it was, indeed.

Well challenged.

Well, now we come to

our special gift section.

The contestant is Karl Marx,

and the prize this week is

a beautiful lounge suite.

Karl has elected
