    OK, in Alastair's absence:

    Name me six films, in pairs. In each pair, one film must contain the father, and the other must contain the son of that father.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    France, 1840. Total guess on the year but I know France oversees the metric standards and I believe they're also in possession of The Kilogram.

    LB: do you mean actors or characters?

    I did mean actors but we should go with Alastair's question.

    Fattygay has the correct answer. I gave it a bit extra time to see if anyone would get closer with the year, which was 1799.

    Away you go Fatty...

    I rock!
    I did also have a sneaking suspicion that Lake Baikal was completely within Russia.

    Oh yeah, I didn't notice. When I read it first I assumed it was character father and sons and wondered if I could answer the entire thing with the Star Wars films...

    Deva
    Eboracum
    Isca Dumnoniorum
    Verulaneum
    Londinium ;)

    I don't think The Kilogram actually weighs exactly a kilogram any more, due to a tiny amount of sublimation or oxidation or what have you. Didn't they eventually find a way to define all the SI units without reference to a lump of metal sitting in a vault in France?

    Eboracum is York, and Londinium was in roughly the same place as the current City of London (Walbrook apparently ran along one of the Roman walls), although there was a period where the city was pretty much uninhabited so does it really count as the same city?

    Isca Dumnoniorum was in the West of England, if I remember right from Rome II Total War.
