Gilbert on University Challenge

Posted on August 2, 2012 by

Legendary linguistics undergraduate Richard Gilbert is a member of Manchester’s latest University Challenge team.

If you want to know how well he and his companions did, you’ll have to watch the episode, which will be broadcast later this year. Gilbert and friends certainly have a lot to live up to! Last year’s team won the series, and Manchester has made it to at least the semi-finals every year since 2005. No pressure then!
