I think this is an interview on BBC Breakfast, and it sounds really fun.

He also said he's going to be on a lap top from a hotel in America... does this mean he's working on something we don't know what is yet? :scratch

It sounds like it. Shows how long we have been in lockdown with Jason now having computer generated backdrops and a wonderful microphone, he certainly know how to use technology. I am such a ludite.

Jason now having computer generated backdrops

Alas, the window to his right is streaming in sunshine, making him look a little ghostly at times. I'm so looking forward to the HP quiz. I've forgotten more than I remember. :dunce

I have a confession to make. Is it wrong not to immediately think of Harry Potter when I think of Jason's work.

My DH figured out how to watch but not participate. I guess I'll take it. Better than nothing. :roll:

I had trouble with the log in at first, but I finally managed. Didn't do much to participate in all the action, but it was a fun and chaotic watch. :D

Yeah. It would have been nice to compete. Because I didn't get in until 11:15-ish, I missed the first round of 6 questions, plus a faulty memory, so I scored 13 out of 24. But Jason made it fun and funny, I still can't figure out where the salt went and reappeared in that magic trick. Damn he's good. :hands Also, he can talk nonstop.

And. It looks like he is in So. California. (The fireplace behind him was Craftsman/Arts & Crafts—really big here at the beginning of the 20th century.) I wonder what he's filming? Hmmmm.

I watched it all and noticed a few things.

The Lost Girls got a shout out.
I loved the magic trick.
I loved the impression of Sir Ian McKellen.
I could not post on the site but just enjoyed watching it.
Did he forget to give answers to the last round of questions . Who was the Rugby player who was the stand in for Robbie Coltrane.
I knew Edward Tutorpole so was so pleased with that.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AywIL5_eYM
I knew the Dunbledore bee question as that was on the Daniel Radcliffe QI special on the BBC a few years ago.
Loved it when Jason lost track especially over the photograph from a film he was not sure he was in.
I thought he said he was in Atlanta Georgia. Anyone know what project is there.

I did not keep score but I think I got about 15 so was surprised. I really enjoyed the evening.
