habitat_for_humanityUnfortuntely the site where I host media files is on the blink today so round two, TV Theme tunes, will have to wait until tomorrow.  In the meantime, let’s skip ahead to round three, Real names.

This round has a simple concept. Loads of famous people are known by stage names, pseudonyms or professional titles. Here I will give you the birth names of 10 famous people and you have to say by what name is each person better known.  As an extra help I’ll also give you their date of birth and where they were born.
