GCHQ Challenge

GCHQ Challenge: " Perhaps following on from Google's methods of recruiting, the UK's Intelligence service is running a code-breaking competition.

There are three parts to the solution. What is the connection between the men in the first list and the women in the second list? Which man pairs with which woman? And what is the hidden quotation?

Just to make things a little more interesting, GCHQ will be offering copies of 'Big Bang' the latest book by Simon Singh, the well known mathematician and code expert, to six successful solvers whose names will be drawn from a hat.

Answers should be emailed to pressoffice@gchq.gsi.gov.uk and must be received by Thursday 27 January 2005.
