I don't know about your office, but everyone in ours is tired and grumpy as the final programme of the year hoves into view. Time for a cheering end-of-year quiz.
Some editors have a photographic memory of every programme they've ever done - I know one who can quote the date, running order and contributors who appeared on shows he made ten years ago - but I have an opposite condition. I tend to completely forget what we did two days ago.
But it's impossible to forget some of the stories we've done in an extraordinary year for news. I've dredged up these questions. How many can you remember?
