Peter Snow, previously famous for his election night swingometer may get the black Mastermind chair as his new prop.

Snow, who now presents Tomorrow's World, is tipped as the replacement for Magnus Magnusson if Mastermind makes the transfer from TV graveyard to Radio 4. The station's controller, James Boyle, has asked the producers of the 25-year-old quiz show to come up with a pilot for his revamped Radio 4 schedule in April.

Mastermind ended on BBC TV last year but as part of his schedule changes to Radio 4, Boyle is in need of a large number of "serious and challenging" quizzes to run every lunchtime. As part of the changes comedy games are moving to the evenings.
