For a more objective view about the 1st round University Challenge match, please refer to the said website.
Updated every week, Iain Weaver ‘reviews the latest happenings in UK Game Show Land’, including University Challenge. I found this website a few months ago, and relished the thought of being mentioned in this column, especially for some of the deadpan quotes:
‘Warwick’s first correct answer is greeted with a little punching of the air. Oh dear. ‘
‘The first picture round is Name That Apparently Desirable Handbag.’
‘[Warwick] later suggest that Chamberlain was alive and publishing in 1975’
Also he makes me top scorer of the round, with 63 points, even though points are awarded as multiples of 5. Aren’t I good!
