Child Genius Series 5: Coming August 2017
The search for Britain’s brightest 8-12 year old is back, as Child Genius returns to Channel 4 for a fifth series. Once again the competition will be hosted by TV mastermind Richard Osman as the children compete in a variety of subjects including maths, spelling, memory and general knowledge.
The series will follow the lives of the children and their families as they progress through the now annual competition, organised in association with British Mensa. Every parent has their own style and the parents of gifted children are no different. From hands on to laid back, each family featured has a unique take on what it’s like to bring up a young genius as the children handle growing up often feeling different to their peers. (C4)
