If you're a Uni Challenge fan you may want to watch or set recorders for the Christmas Special featuring now well known former students.

Part 1 of 10 is on tonight at 7.30 BBC2

Very enjoyable so far, especially as I have more chance of getting the right answers Smile

I thought Rory McGrath excelled himself in the one I caught. I was very impressed.

Rory McGrath is a clever chap.

I'm enjoying this series, it's a bit more light-hearted & the questions must be easier than the regular version as I know more answers.

Very good final last night, I won't say who won in case anybody has not watched yet.

A very enjoyable series.

I recorded (in the technical sense - not asking the questions) an interview with Bamber Gasgoine at the British Library about 10 years ago just after he'd spoken at a Family and Community History conference. He was a really, really charming bloke just like the person who used to present University Challenge.

I watched a few and enjoyed them too.
I wish they'd do a program called "Technical College Challenge" which had exactly the same format but with easier questions.
I'm lucky if I get 3 right in the non celebrity version!!!
