BACK TO TEST THE KNOWLEDGE

OF A NEW GENERATION

The classic game show It's Academic returns to Seven Monday October 17, at 4pm.

Simon Reeve hosts the educational and entertaining show that sees students from primary schools compete against other primary schools in an attempt to win cash and prizes.

The questions are specifically designed to test the knowledge of primary school children, aged between 10 & 12 years – with questions covering subjects such as English, Maths, Science, Geography, Sport, Music and Pop Culture.

Contestants will have the chance to test their general knowledge and win prizes for themselves and their school.

Host, Simon Reeve, formerly a reporter on the long-running Beyond 2000 and now reporter for Sunrise, will lead the children through a maze of questions from the Year 6 syllabus.

It's Academic is being filmed at Seven's Epping studios in Sydney. Executive Producer is Lisa Fitzpatrick.

“Seven is delighted to be re-launching It's Academic nationally to a new generation of viewers,” Ms Fitzpatrick said.

“Simon Reeve is the ideal host to navigate the broad range of questions. The dramatic set, music and surprise elements, heighten the jeopardy and drama, making It's Academic entertaining, as well as informative viewing."
