University Challenge: U of the Arts vs. Imperial
In his preamble, I got the sense that Paxman was hoping that this clash – between a young, up-and-coming arts institution and a venerable centre of scientific excellence – would prove some kind of point. From his baffled postmortem remarks to Imperial (“What happened there?”, approximately) it would seem it didn’t get proved. See, arts students do know things.
The University of the Arts, London, ended up beating Imperial by 215 points to 95 – a relatively low-scoring game. I scored 200, 180 without unstartered bonuses. All a bit low-key, really, and as I’m typing this the day after watching the show I can’t remember any of the interesting questions.
