I got 4/10 shameful. Although I do only ever hear the shipping forecast when I am listening to the cricket, so I will let myself off.

5/10... Q7 is a technicality, I protest.

If Utsire is pronounce OOT-see-ruh (as the quiz says) how come ALL the forecasters stress the second syllable? (as in oot-SEE-ruh).
They're talking out their arse, spoiling my day, when I listen to that forecast more often than I'd like to (inveterate insomniac).

Also, do ship's captains REALLY tune intro Radio 4 in this day and age?
