This is an extract from an email I replied to today:

I am writing to ask if you might be interested in taking part in 'Christmas University Challenge', a special series of the programme which will be recorded in Salford at the end of November and early December 2015.

For this special series, instead of seeing students compete, each team will consist of notable alumni from the universities or university colleges taking part. You may be aware that similar series were broadcast over the Christmas period in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and proved such a success that BBC2 has re-commissioned it for their Christmas schedules this year. We anticipate that the series will be transmitted on consecutive evenings during the Christmas period.

I said I'd do it. If, counter to the prevailing view in the media, the University Challenge people believe that computer game designers count as being notable, I feel duty-bound to accept.

The filming of the first round is set for Sunday 29th November. I haven't checked when the second round is being filmed as I don't expect us to get that far.
