Jan van Eyck from Wildrover sounds right, but if it's not, maybe Albrecht Durer?

7 Which dog lives with Chilli, Bandit and Bingo?
Bluey! It's a tv series about a family of Blue Heeler dogs from Australia. Quite good!

8 How did Dervla Murphy travel from Ireland to India?
I think my partner's got her autobiography.
