The results are in! On the day that students receive their exam results, we also find out that the BBC’s Amol Rajan is the new host of University Challenge. Adam is joined by the iconic voice of the game show, Roger Tilling, to talk about outgoing presenter Jeremy Paxman’s legacy. We talk A-Levels, T-Levels and Btecs with Laura McInerney, co-founder of the Teacher Tapp survey app and Simon Beale, history and politics teacher at Vyners School in Uxbridge. And the Finnish Prime Minister, Sanna Marin, is facing a backlash after a video of her partying was shared on social media. Saska Saarikosi, editor of Finland’s largest subscription newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat, takes us through the story. Today’s episode was produced by Tim Walklate with Alix Pickles and Miranda Slade. The technical producer was Emma Crowe. The assistant editor was Sam Bonham.
