Steve Punt presents the funny, lively and dynamic quiz show from the makers of Cabin Pressure and Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive. Each week, at a different university, it pits a team of three students against three of their lecturers. The rounds vary between specialist knowledge and general knowledge, quickfire bell-and-buzzer rounds and 'highbrow and lowbrow'. Which of the students will turn out to be complete trivia boffins?

The universities in this series are York, Gloucestershire, Chester, Glasgow, Birmingham City University and Bath.
