The BBC Press Office said:

Eight brilliant families compete in a specially designed "games lab" in the ultimate test of intelligence.
Each episode sees two families go head to head in a series of ingenious games, designed in association with Imperial College London. Going beyond traditional ideas about how to measure brain power, such as individual IQ, the games will also explore the power of group intelligence - and what better group to test than families.
So alongside areas like numeracy, verbal reasoning, lateral thinking and memory, the families' mental agility will also be tested in a range of more surprising areas including communication, strategy and risk.
Observing the game play alongside Dara is neuroscientist Dr Hannah Critchlow, who will be sharing her knowledge about the latest scientific research into intelligence.
