Child Genius

Back for a fourth series Child Genius hosted by Richard Osman is back... We must remember these are just children; bright, precocious children that are going to make us feel incredibly inept... Their parents: the kind that avoided me at the school gate!

In the interest of fairness... I was useless in school, fantastic at spelling and writing, hated pretty much everything else, so writing for the ByTheMin is a bonus!!! ... Oh yes, a picture of me in my school uniform... Well, maybe, ish, kinda!

We are looking for the countries cleverest 8 to 12 year old.... For me if it was about Flower Fairies or Barbie I would have been quids in...

16 children are going head to head and our quiz master is Richard Osman... They are remarkably intelligent... The question is; are the parents to blame!?

Mog is aged 12 talking about college and when kids leave just going on benefits... He has goals... Not to be on benefits....

Oh my god, it is no longer gifted, but gifted of the gifted.... Child genius.....

Day 1 of the competition.... Showdown... The language used here is frightening.... These are 8 - 12 year olds....

Richard Osman says he would have entered when he was 12, but says he would have been knocked out early doors...

Round one Mathematics I'm screwed.... No calculators!

Mog is up first... Terribly confident, from Warwickshire he entered himself... The claim here; his parents are not involved in his endevours at all.. He excels at maths and is studying varying languages....
