An encyclopaedic knowledge of fictional spy James Bond and VW Beetles has helped a Cardiff boy clinch the title of Junior Mastermind.
Daniel's specialized subjects were the Beetle car and James Bond
Daniel Parker, 11, won the competition which combines specialist and general knowledge by eight points over his nearest challenger.
He was equal first after the first round but took a clear lead in the general knowledge round.
Jacob Richler-Kleiman from Manchester took second place.
Daniel got into the final of the competition - hosted by presenter John Humphrys - after winning his heat with the subject of classic car the VW Beetle.
He chose James Bond villains for the final, and used cards featuring the characters to help him revise.
Some of the subjects chosen by the other four finalists included the geography of Australia and frogs.
Daniel said of his choice: "I like the Bond films because of the action, the cars and the gadgets and I think the villains make up what the Bond film is today.
"I think Jaws is the best of the baddies."
He clinched his victory with a strong showing in the general knowledge round, ending up with a final score of 31 points.
Daniel said he had not realised he had won until John Humphrys announced it.
"I was so happy, I couldn't believe it," he added.
Radio Four Today presenter Humphrys, who grew up in Cardiff, said of the five finalists: "I know it's the oldest cliché in the book, but they are all winners.
"They did wonderfully well - far better than I expected.
"As for Daniel, he had a big advantage - he's Welsh!" he joked.
