New series. Quizmaster Richard Osman returns with the nationwide contest to find the nation's brightest child, with 19 of the country's cleverest eight to 12-year-olds battling it out for the title. In the first round of the competition, the children must display a phenomenal array of linguistic skills when they are challenged to spell some of the most complicated words in the English dictionary. For round two, they must master Old English, a language so difficult it is normally learnt only by academics.
