New series of this show which lets twenty of Britain's smartest eight to 12-year-olds and their parents battle it out to be crowned Britain's brightest child. So yeah, basically a show to make us all feel a bit thick really, but sure fair play to the young ones, in all and anyways. The series will be a bit different this year and instead of going out weekly, it will be broadcast over six consecutive evenings.

The contest opens with the demanding Spelling and complex Linguistic Memory rounds - testing the participants on their recall of the Latin and Greek-derived scientific names of 60 fruit and vegetables, with three kids having to leave the tournament after these two challenges.
