British Culture:University Challenge Bamber Gasgoine

Arthur Bamber Gascoigne FRSL (born 24 January 1935) is a British television presenter and author, best known for being the original quiz master on University Challenge.

University Challenge – Pro-Celebrity Edition 1992 with graduate on it Stephen Fry from Cambridge University.

Bamber Gascoigne came to national fame as the original presenter (from 1962) of the popular television quiz show University Challenge, based on the US series College Bowl. He held the position for 25 years, until the end of the initial run in 1987. Although he has written several books, mostly works of history, and presented other television programs, his name is permanently connected with University Challenge for many viewers. His questioning manner was firm yet polite. Phrases he often used which became catchphrases include: “Your starter for ten”, “fingers on the buzzers”, and “I’ll have to hurry you”.

When we watched the TV  as a family and were able to answer just one question it was fun as most of the questions went over our heads. Universities throughout the country were chosen and each week the University that won moved on to the next show.

A Sad Day.

When Erin Moran died I wondered what the life of an actor would be like if they had a place and a group of people who cared instead of being actors who pass in the night, out of sight out of mind. Where were her Happy Days friends?

I don’t blame them or her but life in general. There is so much that could have been done a community of actors who help one another when actors fails on hard times a community a home a hotel with a business office all in one place.

I believe we need to help each other while we are here on earth and not be so selfish actors should have a community to find jobs and health care when they have an actors card.

Erin had a familiar face and that became one of the reasons new parts were hard to find yet there are so many different acting jobs and if companies got together with a permanent building in the Actor’s Hotel Home. I don’t have a name for the building.

Jobs could come from a variety of places voice-overs for Disney and Pixar; TV Show Auditions; Directors who spot an actor for an audition; TV Cartoons voice overs; TV Commercials; Advert actors; Documentary voice overs; Verbal Books for the blind; Acting Teachers in schools; Acting Teachers for night school, plus a harbor of skilled actors, directors, and producers online, one place a community a place for actors who need one place.

Depression and health can be addressed a unique place, an uplifting place instead of a footnote that dies in a trailer park. Support comes from donations, job finder fees and those actors who can pay a monthly fee toward the home just like World Vision.

This idea was inspired by the death of Erin; my thoughts came out of the sadness from her death. Erin needed friends and support a community?

The KKK and White Supremacists.

When your education is lacking it does not mean you are stupid, you just don’t realize that there is so much more to life than being who you are.

The KKK and White Supremacists seem to forget one important history fact. Their ancestor’s in the south decided to bring black people from Africa to be slaves. To work the plantations and they treated them like beasts of the earth and not humans. Today what gives you the right to think white is superior? Logic shows us that you should have thought this all out 200 years ago and not brought the black slaves over and allowed them the privilege to live in their own country. That never happened now we have white people who feel the USA is theirs when it is not. In fact emigration made the USA from all the countries around the world, a fabric of many colors and cultures that should be treated the same but once again whites take what they want, use what they want, live and hate how they want, and are as educated at a level the south allows without any world knowledge at all.

For those who wonder what color I am 1931500_1067107443353668_927563190034189137_n WHITE
