Contestants wanted for Radio 4 quiz show

Radio 4 logo

BBC Radio 4 quiz show The 3rd Degree will be coming to the University of Reading on 28 January 2020.

The 3rd Degree is a show that pits three Undergraduate students against three members of staff in a general knowledge and specialist subject quiz.

Hosted by Steve Punt, the show is recorded on location at a different university each week with an audience composed of students and staff from that university.

The rounds vary between Specialist Knowledge and General Knowledge, with quickfire bell-and-buzzer rounds and individual questions. The two teams sit at desks on opposite sides of the stage with the Chair in between.

Applications for the staff team are now closed and the successful team members have been selected and contacted. Thank you to everyone who got in touch.

We are now looking for volunteers to make up the audience for the show. Volunteers will be needed for approximately two hours from 17:00 on 28 January in the Minghella Studios. 

More details will be released in the new year.
