Quiz documentary

Postby Sequin » Mon Feb 04, 2013 5:50 am

A film-maker (Jeffrey French) will be visiting the UK soon to film some material for a documentary he's making. To quote an email from him:

The finished piece will include the history of quizzing, extensive interviews with personalities from the quizzing world (from the casual pub quiz player to Jeopardy! champion, Ken Jennings), as well as interviews with noted psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists, who will explain the science behind our desire to quiz and the process of retaining and recalling information, at will.


A clip of the work done so far can be seen here:
