A few that got away this week

1 What was the name of the Czech student who set himself on fire in Wenceslas Square in January 1969, as a protest against the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia which crushed the Prague Spring in 1968? He later died from his injuries.

2 The BBC radio newsreader Wallace Greenslade is mainly remembered today for his involvement with which radio show?

3 Which comedian had a minor hit in 1961 with Don't Jump Off the Roof Dad?

4 Name the person pictured below.



1 Jan Palach, very tough this, one you either know or you don't. We didn't.
2 The Goon Show, annoyingly this was suggested as a possible answer but discounted.
3 Tommy Cooper, we could only come up with Charlie Drake here.
4 Danny Wallace.
