Four distinguished graduates from the University will be taking part in Christmas University Challenge on BBC Two, competing against the University of Sussex in a first round match on Monday 30 December at 8pm.

This comes fifty years after students from the University of Leicester won the first ever series of the long-running BBC show in 1963.

Alumni from the University will compete in one of seven first-round matches, with the first airing on Friday 20 December. The four teams with the highest winning scores will play in two semi-finals, with the winners meeting in the final, which will air on Friday 3 January.

University Challenge is an academic quiz show where teams from different UK universities answer questions on all manner of subjects.
