University Challenge

I’m a big fan of the BBC show University Challenge. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have much of an online fanbase. For example, the subreddit is completely inactive (but I did find a Tumblr called Cuties of University Challenge). Sean Blanchflower even keeps track of overall season statistics, but that’s about as involved as anyone seems to be.

So, I’ve started a University Challenge Questions Database.

As per my previous post, I’ve been parsing subtitles from the show using Python and PHP (code here), and now I’ve gotten it to sort questions and answers.

In the future, I hope to add team statistics, and sort questions by subject.
