Test the Nation: the National IQ Test


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Two years ago more than nine million viewers witnessed the first national IQ test. Tonight the third is held. The two-part live programme, presented by Anne Robinson and Phillip Schofield , sets a test which can be taken on the internet, via digital television, a scorecard or, most simply, with a pen and paper. Using 70 specially designed multiple-choice questions, it examines the five "intelligence areas" - language, memory, logic, numbers and perception.
As viewers take the test at home, six groups - models, white van men, gardeners, doctors, redheads and triplets - answer the same questions in the studio, where they are joined by celebrity participants. Continues at 10.10pm.
Series editor Alexandra Henderson Videoplus code for 8.30-11.20pm(non-PDC)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
