Radio 4 quiz coming to Norwich’s University of East Anglia

A light-hearted BBC Radio 4 quiz which pits lecturers against their students is coming to Norwich.

An episode of The 3rd Degree will be recorded at the University of East Anglia (UEA) next Friday.

The Norwich lecturers who will competing against their students will be computing expert Richard Harvey, film studies lecturer Melanie Williams and art historian Sarah Monks.

Dr Monks said: 'UEA students are a smart bunch, so it's going to be tough for us to beat them – but we'll try. I'm just hoping there aren't too many science questions.'

The quiz, which includes general knowledge, quick-fire and 'highbrow and lowbrow' rounds, will be recorded in the Thomas Paine Study Centre lecture theatre.

Members of the public are welcome to attend and should arrive at 5.30pm for a 6pm start.
