QI, which stands for Quite Interesting, is the best quiz show in the world, and probably the only one not to be copied in Australia. It was quite disturbing to discover that Good News Week and Spicks and Specks are both British in origin, and Australia even imports the same guests! QI is hosted by Stephen Fry, a national treasure, (and he’s podcasting now). You can download it (illegally) not that I’d ever condone that sort of thing. And for your amusement, here is a clip from same – the cutest and funniest bird in the world, the mannikin bird – it moonwalks to attract a mate.



  1. I’m fairly certain I recently saw a reference to a nice segment where Fry has a go at Christians in some context -perhaps the appropriation of pagan holidays. Very funny…

  2. hooray for the beeb. have you seen this one where the lyre bird sings like a camera shutter and motor drive?

  3. Lyre birds are undoubtedly the best birds in the whole world. I hope you spot one when you are down there!

  4. Do you remember the show ‘That’s Incredible?’ New Zealand had a version called TFI (‘That’s Fairly Interesting’)

    I’m not kidding.

  5. Bahahahaha! Perfect!

  6. ooh understatement! how i miss that….
