    We are about to embark on the third and final leg of our mini-tour of Universities. We will be in Cardiff on Thursday and Friday of this week (the 12th and 13th November). On Thursday we are recording Material World with Quentin Cooper and new quiz show The Third Degree hosted by Steve Punt that sees academics pitted against their students. On Friday we have Any Questions with Jonathan Dimbleby and Bespoken Word, our performance poetry programme presented by Mr Gee.

    The Cardiff venues are large so we have room for members of the public as well as students and members of the University staff. If you go onto the Cardiff University website you will find details of how to book. So if you live in the Cardiff area do come and join us. You are all very welcome.
