The competition to find UK’s brightest children continues on Channel 4. The competition is in association with British Mensa and tests twenty 8-12-year old’s in areas like spelling, mathematics or niche history to establish whether these children are deserving of the title Child Genius, as well as a unique view inside the childhood of the prodigies, who are from varying backgrounds.

Richard Osman, co-presenter of Pointless, uses his quick wit to test the nation’s sharpest children.

Maidstone Library was used in an upcoming episode, where one of the children was visiting. Southwood Road Recreation Ground, Tunbridge Wells also features.
