Episode 5 of 7

New game show in which a team of four DJs take on a team of four young boffins in a series of mental and physical games and challenges designed to test who is really smart.

Matt Edmondson presents a provocative and funny studio game show, which uses unusual tasks and surprising games to challenge the way we look at intelligence.

In each show a team of academically brilliant young people, the 'Clevers' take on a team who some might think are a little bit 'Stupid'. The two teams face quirky challenges that test all different areas of their intelligence, rather than simply measuring IQ and conventional intelligence. With the help of psychologists, the games have been designed to level the playing field between the two teams, making it a fair fight.

Using games based on psychological research the show tests the teams' creativity, their emotional intelligence, their physical dexterity and practical skills.

The winner is decided in a dramatic final round called The Ultimate Mind Game that uses state of the art equipment to test the contestants' brainpower and focus.

A team of four disc jockeys go up against a musical prodigy, a mathematical genius, a quiz mistress and a quantum physicist, with the DJs out to prove they are not just late night layabouts with a permanent hangover.

Among the games - the teams have to get creative and invent a children's story on the spot; use their practical skills to change a tyre; show physical dexterity when they make an ice cream sundae while wearing goggles that turn the world upside down; and use emotional intelligence when interviewing naked gardeners.
