University Challenge Question Database

Published Oct 28, 2017 by Alik Ulmasov

I’m a big fan of the BBC show University Challenge. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have much of an online fanbase. For example, the subreddit is completely inactive (but I did find a Tumblr called Cuties of University Challenge). Sean Blanchflower even keeps track of overall season statistics, but that’s about as involved as anyone seems to be.

So, I’ve started a University Challenge Questions Database.

University Challenge

I’ve been parsing subtitles from the show using Python and PHP (code here), and now I’ve gotten it to sort questions and answers.

In the future, I hope to add team statistics, and sort questions by subject.
