TV version of the panel show in which Dave Gorman and a celebrity guest take a range of ideas from the public, in the hope they will find something they can class as 'Genius'. See our guide to the radio series for more on the concept.

Our Review: This show works quite well on radio, but whether it can transfer to the more demanding TV medium is the big question.

The series has been recorded. Guests who will appear on the show include Catherine Tate, Jonathan Pryce, Stewart Lee, Frank Skinner, Johnny Vegas and Germaine Greer.
