(8 OF 12)

The Pivot Questionnaire comprises 10 questions. I have seen it used on the television show Inside The Actor's Studio, presented by James Lipton. Apparently Proust was the original inspiration. The modern questions originated on a French TV show called Bouillon de Culture, hosted by Bernard Pivot. I have expanded the questions to 12.

This post’s special guest is broadcaster Lynette Fay. Lynette is from County Tyrone, a graduate of the National University of Ireland, Galway, and sits on the Governing Authority of Dublin City University.

She co-presents the TV show Opry with Daniel O’Donnell on TG4.
