Michael Palin Yorkshire Connections Quiz

Thought I might try to make a quiz for anyone who is interested. The idea is to identify the 10 links in my home county of Yorkshire to Michael Palin.

1 point for identifying the exact link
1 extra point for each if you can add an extra piece relevant information.
So 20 total points available (oooh my brain hurts). Send a pm with your answers

Hope its not too easy ! (Click the image to get it full size)

I can offer a prize - a signed copy of his new diaries "Halfway to Hollywood"

hawes is related to the cheese shop sketch and wenslaydale cheese? the picture no.9 is from the four yorkshiremen sketch and that is all i know! not enough eh? damn i want that book so badly!!!!!!!

arkennedy: Great idea for a quiz :) I know he was born in Sheffield, but beyond that I'm can't identify the other links.

the_thina: oh I want to so bad but I dont know that very much about him, and I know absolutely nothing about engands geography nor the other pepole that are clues. :(

kissmyarrrtichoke: He was born in Sheffield, got on a train to York, was in the four yorkshiremen sketch??

Lady April: Dayam, I love that guy and I really love his work and I CAN call myself a fan but I don't know everything there is to know about Michael Palin. I am not ashamed to say so either.

CamelSpotter: I love the idea, but I simply don't know enough! Shame, indeed.

BroMaynardG: I'm still trying to finger out the bus schedule in Massawhosville!

My brain hurts enough as it it, but I promise to return and at least find out the "funny bits".

kisch: I will not participate for the book (we've already got one, you see:))), but I can name at least 6 connections out of 10. And I call myself a fan ! Shame...

mrsCutout: don't say that! I'm from greece will it be too hard for me to participate?beacause i want that book so badly haha!

Lancaster Bomber: Well so much for that idea - a complete failure which was a bit disappointing. To paraphrase Ali G "Is it 'cos I is Yorkshire ?)
