Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

If you COULD dig a hole directly through the centre of the Earth, from one side of the world to the other, assuming no air resistance that would cause issues with 'terminal velocity', if you jumped into the hole you would JUST pop out of the hole at the other end.

Bit of a guess: there are more Italian players in the Bangor City squad than in the Juventus squad?

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

A further clue: Excerpts from Act IV, Scene 6 were incorporated into another work of art - it's that work of art I'm looking for.

I don't know the answer, but I note that it was the last major programme on the network before it was replaced by Radio 3 the following day. Is this relevant?
Not relevant, and probably coincidental.
