Jeremy Paxman chairs the final of infamously difficult quiz.
Somewhat infuriatingly the finalists are both Oxbridge colleges (when are Teesside University ever going to get the chance to compete?) as St. John’s College, Cambridge, face Merton College, Oxford. Merton last won the contest back in 1980, while St. John’s have reached the final three times, but have failed to win. Can this be their year?
University Challenge is on BBC Two at 20.30.
