The BBC Family Competition

BBC Television

Family Group

The producers of BBC series School, Monkman & Seagull's Genius Guide to Britain and the BAFTA nominated Hospital are now looking for some of Britain's most intelligent families for an exciting new competition. This new show will follow families as they go head-to-head in a battle to find out which of them have the best brains.

As individuals you don’t have to be good at everything, but as a family team will you have what it takes to win?

This BBC competition is about all aspects of intelligence – logic, reasoning, memory, strategy, creativity and so much more. It is a warm-hearted show, which will celebrate incredible teams and explore their family dynamic as they work together to take on a series of highly compelling challenges, puzzles and gameplay. We hope it will be a valuable educational experience for all involved.

It's not about what is in your brain – but how you use it!

The BBC Family Competition is produced for the BBC by Label1
