BRITISH QUIZ TELEVISION SERIES
University Challenge is a British quiz programme which first aired in 1962. University Challenge aired for 913 episodes on ITV from 21 September 1962 to 31 December 1987, presented by quizmaster Bamber Gascoigne. The BBC revived the programme on 21 September 1994 with Jeremy Paxman as the quizmaster.

The current title holders are Imperial College London, who won the 49th series in 2020.

Eric Monkman (born c. 1987) is a Canadian academic and television personality based in the United Kingdom.
Monkman comes from Oakville, Ontario, Canada. His father, a doctor, died when Eric was thirteen. Monkman obtained his first degree from the University of Waterloo and then studied for a master's degree in economics at Wolfson College, Cambridge, when he captained the college's University Challenge team. The team lost in the 2017 final to a team from Balliol College, Oxford.

His girlfriend, Jiang Na, who teaches law at Beijing Normal University, had previously also appeared on the programme. Viewers described him as the most intense contestant ever: a reviewer called him an "unexpected hero"

Together with Bobby Seagull, Monkman presented the BBC Radio 4 programme Monkman and Seagull’s Polymathic Adventure, and wrote the quiz book The Monkman and Seagull Quiz Book published by Eyewear Publishing in October 2017. They presented Monkman & Seagull's Genius Guide to Britain, a four-part series on BBC Two, first broadcast in 2018. The show was commissioned for a second series in 2019.
