Child Ge­nius

The Western Star - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Mon­day, sbs, 7.30pm

“I didn’t teach him that, I don’t know where he got it from,” a father ner­vously laughs in this en­light­en­ing and up­beat new quiz show with a dif­fer­ence. Fronted by “quizmaster” Dr Su­san Car­land (pic­tured) and over­seen by Mensa, Child Ge­nius brings 19 gifted chil­dren to­gether to com­pete for the ti­tle of Aus­tralia’s Child Ge­nius. The cam­era fol­lows the drama on stage, but also ven­tures into the chil­dren’s homes, giv­ing usa n in­ti­mate por­trait of these rather adorable and quirky ge­niuses, as well an in­sight into the di­verse par­ents and the chal­lenges they face. Tonight’s pre­miere kicks off with the sub­jects science and me­mory re­call.
