BBC Radio 1, 29 January to 13 May 1980 (16 episodes in 1 series)


A rock and pop quiz, played between colleges and universities throughout Britain. Teams of three took part in a knockout tournament. Unlike on University Challenge, polytechnics competed against universities.

The winners played a challenge against other Radio 1 DJs, Mike Read, Paul Gambaccini and John Peel.

The Radio Times doesn't tell us which student team won, but it does tell us the semi-finals. Bristol Polytechnic v Aberystwyth University in one, St Andrews University v Newcastle Polytechnic in the other.

The contest went out in the last half-hour of Kid Jensen's afternoon show on Radio 1.
