Pointless is a British televisionquiz show produced by Banijay for the BBC. It is hosted by Alexander Armstrong with assistance from Richard Osman. In each episode four teams of two contestants attempt to find correct but obscure answers to four rounds of general knowledge questions, with the winning team eligible to compete for the show's cash jackpot. All questions used on the show are factual in nature, and are asked of a panel of 100 individuals in a pre-conducted public survey. Contestants seek to find correct answers that were given by as few of the survey subjects as possible ("points"); each round is won by the team with the fewest points. "Pointless" answers, given by nobody, score zero points, the best score. Every pointless answer given during the main game increases the jackpot by £250, and one such answer must be given in the final round in order to win it.

Most quiz shows test contestants' knowledge of important topics like history, geography and literature with the winning contestant being the one who scores the most points. `Pointless' isn't most quiz shows. Contestants try to score as few points as possible while racking their brains trying to come up with answers no one else can think of for general-knowledge questions. The contestants are asked the same questions that were previously asked of surveyed individuals with the goal of giving the correct answers that were given least frequently by the people surveyed. If a contestant provides a correct answer that was not said by anyone in the survey, known as a pointless answer, he gets no points and money is added to the jackpot, which is the grand prize a contestant can win for giving a correct pointless answer in the final round. The jackpot starts at £1,000 and keeps growing each episode until someone wins it, at which point it is reset to the original £1,000. Wikipedia

n April, Blaze released "Live In Czech", a live album and DVD recorded last fall at the Melodka venue in Brno, Czech Republic. The theme of the tour followed on from Blaze's "Infinite Entanglement" trilogy of albums and the setlist particularly featured some of the more epic songs from the trilogy which hadn't previously been included in concert setlists. The set also contained a selection of songs from his albums with IRON MAIDEN during the 1990s.

In September, Blaze plans to reissue his 2002 album "Tenth Dimension" with new packaging and upgraded artwork. There will also be a vinyl version for the first time.
