Episode M97

From Countdown

Episode M97 was an episode of Series 2 of the Countdown Masters. It was scheduled to be broadcast from 4 February 1991 to 8 February 1991, but was never transmitted, due to the Gulf War.

Andrew Fisher played Clive Freedman, with Andrew Fisher winning 120 – 77.

NOTE: In Round 10, Dictionary Corner offered the extremely dubious GUNFIRES: the rulings around mass nouns would not be clarified for many years.
