Edit: hmm, the video tag doesn't work, but just writing the url does.
Alrighty, that's quite the inside joke.

I've heard of High Street, but it wasn't going to come to me. I almost made a BWA attempt with "Mornington Crescent," but I thought I had a nonzero chance of a random guess being right, and that the reference was too obscure (at least in America).

I'm kind of disappointed that my answers earlier this season of "Qurplop" for the Quran subdivision and "Prince E. Mail" for the Nigerian playwright weren't chosen.

It would never have occurred to me that there could exist a person who could come up with Mornington Crescent but not High Street.

I went with "Basketball Jones" yesterday, which is a very old Cheech and Chong routine. Almost got it right totally by accident.

The Death and Life of Great American Cities, a seminal work in the field of urban planning, was written in 1961 by what tenacious New Yorker (and foe of Robert Moses)?
Pharaoh

(I opted for that variant over Faroe...didn't want to get too cutesy)

I guessed that the other Slovenian basketball player was Melania Trump.

For Aaron Spelling's last series before he died, I went with "Heaven Couldn't Wait". I knew 'heaven' was in there, but no way I was pulling that one.
