UK broadcaster Sky One have a new TV show called Sudoku live which is presented by Carol Vorderman. Sudoku is a logic craze that (according to the pr blurb we were sent is 'sweeping the nation' - although when the call came in we have to admit we'd never heard of it!) Sky asked us to pull off a pr stunt to publicise the launch of the show, so we decided to go for a world record and create the largest puzzle on earth! We used white tarpaulins and plastic sheeting to create the design. Sky One ran a competition to coincide with the creation of the massive Sudoku grid asking people to try and solve the puzzle. The winner was awarded 5000 pounds.
The puzzle was prominently featured in 6 national newspapers as well as on BBC news.
