Who Dares Wins - BBC - Is the UK part of Asia?!

Watching this right now with the girlfriend. The question was "Name countries that are part of Asia". - See second post for photo

The first group said 22, and the second group said they could name 23. They named 23 just fine and then the host of the show said, heres the rest of the countries you could of used.

I never knew UK and Cyprus were part of Asia.



Anyone shed some light on this for me?! I thought I was European!

This show isn't live. Its not like someone noticed and took the list down, if anyone had noticed at the time, we would never have seen the list. Also, this is also not a BBC production. It is a 12 Yard programme.

Apart from that, your post was 100% correct.

The UK is just about as much in North America as Asia!

Still on BBC though so surely they have some kinda call about the quality? And its a rookie in one form or another

Part of the Commonwealth?

Banned

Northern Cyprus could technically be in Asia as it is part of Turkey (albeit illegally occupied)

that list looks awfully light though or maybe its just the ones they didnt name. Why isnt China on it for starters? Also, Turkmenistan, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan etc
