ANSWER: Watership Down
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 6 July 2023
“Watership Down,” a novel penned by Richard Adams in 1972, tells the tale of a group of courageous rabbits leaving their endangered warren in search of safer dwellings. The inspiration for this narrative originated from stories Adams used to narrate to his daughters during car rides.
“Watership Down” presents a range of themes including leadership, the notion of home, community, survival, and the pursuit of freedom. The book even introduces its own language (known as ‘Lapine’) and a unique mythology. However, despite the intricate narrative structure and the weighty themes it explores, Adams and his daughters have consistently emphasized that “Watership Down” should not be viewed as an allegory or metaphor mirroring human society, but rather, it is simply “a story about rabbits.” This novel won Adams various recognitions, one of which is the Carnegie Medal in Literature.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 6 July 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
