Have you ever thought you could be the next James Bond or Violette Szabo?

Would-be spies are being sought for a new Channel 4 television show being created by Minnow Films. It aims to show the recruitment and training process involved in becoming a spy, and will explore the type of person it takes to serve the country under cover.

The producers are looking for a group of 20 men and women to attempt a course based on elements of the authentic recruitment and training phases of Britain’s intelligence services.

This year’s photographic competition was a great success. More than 20 entries were received, and we are happy to show them all here. The subject for 2016 was British Birds, and the standard of entries was, as usual, very high indeed. So high, in fact, that although the judges found a clear winner they could not decide on a runner up, and we have awarded two equal runner up prizes this year.

Congratulations to Pete, Kat and John, and many thanks to all the other members who entered the competition.

Two events coming up over the next few weeks aim to help both parents and children, both led by Mensa’s gifted child consultant Lyn Kendall and hosted by Mensa’s hub school, the Westwood Academy in Coventry.

Mensa chairman JENNY GILL reports from a colourful day out in Yorkshire

 

What an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. First of all the company of 30 Mensans, families and friends and then enjoying an informative Colour Experience at the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) in Bradford - not only a learning experience but an opportunity to experiment as well.

No, we didn’t blow the place up!

The team are all fans of games and puzzles and met while competing in the annual Mensa games tournaments over several years.
