Excellent! Monday nights feel right again with the return of a new series of the enduringly popular brainy quiz. The format hasn’t changed in 50 years and there are no big cash prizes, not even a cuddly toy. Best of all even if you can’t answer the questions, it’s still a thrill to have a go before rolling your eyes and hoping that Jeremy ‘Hurry up!’ Paxman will ask a starter about films or TV so at least you have a sporting chance.
Opening proceedings are York University, defeated finalists (by Magdalen College, Oxford) last year, and newcomers London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire of
Music and Dance. Fingers on buzzers.
New series. Jeremy Paxman returns to ask the questions as the 2012 competition gets under way. In this year's first match, four students from Greenwich's Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance take on a team from the University of York.
