Dear Derbyshire Pub Quiz League,

Thames Scotland are currently producing the Saturday night quiz show, Break the Safe, for BBC One and are looking for pairs of contestants to take part. Presented by Nick Knowles, Break the Safe sees three pairs of contestants play against each other for a potential £100,000. 

If you think you and somebody you know have the nerve, skill and general knowledge to break the safe, we want to hear from you. Your partner needs to be somebody you know really well and can be a family member, a colleague, a friend; just somebody you can put your trust in when it really counts!

Please find attached a flyer which we hope you can circulate. We are happy to hear from anyone who is interested in applying so please spread the word to colleagues, family and friends – all help is greatly appreciated!

If you would like any more details about the show please do not hesitate to contact us on 0141 427 8160 or email breakthesafe@thames.tv
