University Challenge: Merton through to second round after defeating Wolfson College, Cambridge

A team from Merton scored a decisive win over opponents from Wolfson College, Cambridge in Monday's first-round contest, coming away winners with an impressive 210 points to Wolfson's 40. Captain Pax Butchart, now a second-year English undergraduate, led team-mates Tom McLean (English, postgraduate), Conor Ó Síocháin (PPE, now graduated), and William Isotta (Physics, undergraduate) to a resounding victory in a very one-sided match, answering questions on topics as diverse as Winston Churchill, the flags of British Overseas Territories, and contemporary choreographers.

The episode is available to watch again until 14 October via the BBC iPlayer; the date of Merton's second-round match, and their opponents, have yet to be announced.
