IT is possible to find out everything you could possibly want to know about Fenland in three minutes.

From the district’s economy to former Fenland District Council chief executive Tim Pilsbury’s substantial payout, nothing is off limits in the above three-minute YouTube clip, in which the district’s Wikipedia entry is recited.

And, as well as being full of information, it has the added benefit of being narrated by a computer with a unique take on pronunciations.

Wisbech has become Wis-bec and Cambridgeshire has evolved into Cam-brid-shi-sha.

So, if you want to guarantee victory next time the Fenland category comes up at your Pub Quiz, or if you simply want to be both entertained and educated for three minutes, this clip is well worth a watch.
