This is a bit of a late post, but I wonder whether any of you have noticed our peer Andrew Read http://www.proz.com/pro/49439 on the University Challenge Manchester team, who have been putting up some great scores, beating a Cambridge college with ease yesterday?

They are now through to the semi-final, which will be held on Monday Feb 18 and will be facing Christ Church Oxford which could be a bit dodgy statistically, as Christ Church is one of Oxford's largest.

It gives me a great buzz to see someone introducing themselves with the words "and I am reading for a doctorate in translation studies", as it also does to see a peer getting so many answers right.

Tune in and donate some spiritual support!

BBC 2 at 20:00, right after the other programme on ITV that has made Manchester famous.

Bravo Andrew! Jan 22, 2008

I won't be able to see the show, but I wanted to give my support from Italy and tell Andrew:
'Bravo! Sei tutti noi! Fagliela sudare'

Program link please! Jan 22, 2008

Thanks for sharing Textklick (sorry, forgot your real name).
Could you tell us the name of the program, so that we could possibly watch it (if there is an archive)

University Challenge

They don't seem to publish DVDs either, but you can view some highlights on You Tube to get the feel of it.

Best,

Thank you for the link. Jan 22, 2008

Don't have a TV, I'm afraid, but any chance someone - besides the station - is taping AR's moments for posterity?

Best wishes and good luck,
Terry
