No, the programmes are pre-recorded. I wish now that I`d recorded it instead of watching on the day, then I`d have had my proof. The question was "what is the more familiar name for a pneumothorax?" The 3 choices were, heart attack, punctured lung, and the 3rd I can`t remember. Straightaway, the Eggheads said heart attack. We knew that was wrong, because my husband had been in hospital the previous week with a pneumothorax, which was explained to us as a collapsed lung. When we watched it back on Iplayer, the question was changed to "what is a myocardial infarction better known as?" The choices were the same, obviously. But also, the previous question to the challengers was different to what was in the programme. Strange doings at the BBC.
