On Thursday 2nd March, three brave Somerville students will take on their professors in an epic battle of wits, as they go head-to-head on BBC R4’s ‘The 3rd Degree’.
Now in its thirteenth series, ‘The 3rd Degree’ is a quiz show that pits three undergraduates against three academics in a general knowledge/specialist subject quiz. The rounds vary from General Knowledge to a Subject-specific face-off, to quickfire bell-and-buzzer sessions. There’s also the popular ‘Highbrow / Lowbrow’ round, in which students can challenge their tutors on everything from Barthes to Beyoncé.
Appearing in this epic contest of Somerville minds are:
- Senior Tutor Dr Steve Rayner vs. Di Ying on Physics
- Assoc. Prof. Luke Pitcher vs. Charlotte Perry on Classics
- Assoc. Prof. Louise Mycock vs. Lizzy Abel on Linguistics
Hosted by Steve Punt (‘The Now Show’), ‘The 3rd Degree’ is a formal quiz with a light-hearted approach that ensures no two shows are the same – all we need now is your support to cheer on our teams.
Venue: Flora Anderson Hall
Time: Doors at 17:40 ready for recording at 18:00
