The 3rd Degree is a quiz show that pits three Undergraduates against three members of staff in a general knowledge & specialist subject quiz. It is hosted by Steve Punt (Mock the Week, Horrible Histories) and is recorded on location at a different University each week with the audience composed of students and staff from the University. And in February 2015 we're coming to the Martin Harris Centre at The University of Manchester!
The show has the underlying rigour of a formal quiz, but combined with a light-hearted quest to discover how the students will fare against their elders and betters... but being a BBC Radio 4 quiz, both the questions and the scoring are actually approached in a rigorous fashion and taken seriously.
The rounds vary between Specialist Knowledge and General Knowledge, with quick fire bell-and-buzzer rounds and individual questions also.
The show is produced by David Tyler for Pozzitive, whose various credits include 'Spitting Image', 'Thanks A Lot, Milton Jones!' and ‘Cabin Pressure’.
If you are an undergraduate student and you are interested in taking part in the quiz please contact Kath Paddison firstname.lastname@example.org
