Did You Know?


The title "QI" stands for "Quite Interesting", the aim of the show being to give interesting answers or information to score points rather than necessarily correct answers.


Guest: I think Swedish Socialism comes from the Vikings: they have this concept "Larghomme" in Sweden which means "Just enough", which comes from sharing out the wine after a raid, making sure that there's no-one at the back who didn't get any.


Jo Brand tells an anecdote about Arthur Conan Doyle, that he sent some friends a letter saying "All is discovered, flee immediately", and one of his friends then disappeared. This is something Mark Twain did, not Arthur Conan Doyle.

Crazy Credits

The researchers who provide the questions and information for Stephen Fry are credited as "QI Elves" which is how they are referred to on the show. Occasionally they are also given other interesting titles like "Curator of Jack and Jill" These can be seen in the "Cast And Crew".

Alternate Versions

Occasionally the arrangement of the opening/end credits music would be modified slightly to match the theme of that particular show. So, for instance, when the given topic was something like "All things french", an accordion would be heard prominently in the mix. But perhaps the most obvious case of modification would be in the "Holiday Special", where in addition to jingle-bells being added, the first two lines from the song by that same name were cleverly integrated into the music - thus adding three more notes to the second line of the main melody.
