A new television series wants to know ‘Who knows Ireland Best?’ The programme will set two teams against each other in a fun, entertaining game show.
Contestants will be drawn from Ireland‘s workforce, sports clubs and hobby groups in teams of three. There will be Cabbies verses Scuba divers, Nurses verses Karate Experts and Firemen verses Dancers - a cross-section of the population.
The producers have asked 1000 members of the public - 100 probing questions about everything from their manners and morals to their hopes and expectations. It’s a census of our self-esteem, a survey of our cultural body image.
“We have the results of the survey and we want to find out… Which of our teams is most in touch with the people? Who has their finger on the pulse?
Points are awarded for being in agreement with the majority of the survey respondents. The eventual winners can truly be said to be in sync with the heart of the country.
‘Who knows Ireland best?’ The questions are entertaining but are underpinned by scientific veracity. They take us to the very heart of Ireland. Its ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’ meets ‘Test the Nation’.
We interrogated 1000 unsuspecting members of the public with such probing inquiries as:
* What percentage of the country knows all the words to the National Anthem?
* Did you ever cheat in a test at school?
* Have you ever peed in a swimming pool?
* Have you ever checked your partner’s text messages?
* The winning team can claim to ‘Know Ireland Best’
