This road trip around the country is present by two particularly brainy people. We know this because they were both team captains on University Challenge.
Eric Monkman and Bobby Seagull are the duo travelling across Britain to celebrate the country’s ingenuity, with the first episode covering England. Along the trip they visit the oldest amusement ride in Europe, a museum devoted to lawnmowers, and the Jodrell Bank Observatory.
Monkman and Seagull’s Genius Guide to Britain is on BBC Two at 20.00.
