University Challenge (College Bowl Britain)

One of my favourite shows let's see if there is interest in a thread.

For those who don't know UC/CB, two teams of four university students square off in an extremely difficult and high brow general knowledge quiz show. 73.49 questions are asked per episode on average (apparently) and it's not unusual for regular watchers to get like two to three questions correct. Which makes it especially satisfying to solve a question that eluded the eight brainy (mostly) young students.

The mostly weekly episodes are normally quite easy to find on YouTube. Series 48 ended last night and series 49 will air from about three months from now.

Here's a YouTube channel which has every episode from series 48.

This is episode one.



These are episodes 25-34, the QFs (each team needs to win two matches to make the semi-finals).

Final (v. fun)

Would recommend starting either with episode one or the qfs since that gives you a chance to know the teams which you'll enjoy, unless you hate the show, which many of you will.

Ah I've loved Monday evenings in the last few months with Only Connect followed by University Challenge.
