Someone has a crush: “I hadn’t realised just how low and smoky Jeremy Paxman’s voice is… I’m impressed,” giggles a University Challenge contestant after she meets the grand inquisitor.

The Paxo effect is galvanising: as teams take their places in the University Challenge studio they meet the man himself, and all of them, men and women, simper and blush like Jane Austen ladies.

In the concluding part of an engaging documentary, narrated by Pointless’s Richard Osman, we watch as teams hoping to compete in the series are given the good – and bad – news. The production team members are delightfully emotionally manipulative, making sure they leave that all-important X Factor pause.


Part two of two. The students discover whether they have earned a coveted place for their institution on the latest series of University Challenge. For the successful 28 teams, their journey continues with an intense training period before they head to the studios in Salford's MediaCityUK, where they come face to face with host Jeremy Paxman and begin their quest to become University Challenge Champions 2015. Narrated by Richard Osman.
