Imperial's University Challenge winners - May 1996

Congratulations to the Imperial College team, who beat the London School of Economics 275 to 220 in the University Challenge final. The trophy, presented by the BBC's foreign affairs editor, John Simpson, should soon be back in the hands of the IC team, having been temporarily lost by last year's winners, Trinity College, Cambridge.
