Some sample questions from this category:

* One of the great features of television when I was a child was the number of cowboy shows available. My favourite concerned a man whose white horse was called 'Silver', and whose faithful Indian companion called him 'Kemo Sabe'. What was his name?
* Still on the subject of performers who lost their lives in the service of their country, an English actor who starred with Gable and Leigh in 'Gone with the Wind' was killed in a plane crash. Who was he?
* The 1940s weren't actually only about the war. Life went on afterwards and the entertainment industry kept on entertaining. A film made in 1946 featured both real people and cartoon characters, and starred James Baskett. What is its name?
* In 1945, a young English actress famed for her beautiful eyes starred in a film called 'National Velvet'. Who was she?
