The test, which can be taken on the internet, via digital television, a scorecard or, most simply, with a pen and paper, uses 70 specially designed questions to examine five intelligence areas" - language, memory, logic, numbers and perception.
Each question has four possible answers to choose from and a prescribed time-limit. As viewers take the test at home, six groups - identical twins, builders, teachers, blondes, publicans and students - answer the same questions live in the studio, where they are joined by ten celebrity participants.
The results from the studio and those taking part on the internet will help to determine the current state of the nation's IQ. Continues after the news at 10.05pm. Producer Nichola Hegarty ; Executive producers Jon Beazley and John Kaye Cooper WEBSITE: www.bbc.co.uk/testthenation

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
