UKTV’s Watch channel has released a trailer for their new factual entertainment format Memory Slam.
Fronted by Rachel Riley, Memory Slam combines documentary with the tension of a real-world competition, following gifted youngsters at the final of the UK Schools Memory Championships. As well as all the excitement of the live event, the programme goes behind the scenes to discover what it takes to become a young national champion.
Commissioned earlier this year, Memory Slam is one of five new programmes that comprise Watch’s Format Labs – a strand designed to pilot a number of new factual entertainment formats. UKTV previously stated that the hope is that at least one of the five from this strand will go to series. But will Memory Slam be that one?

Memory Slam premiere on Watch on Tuesday December 16th at 8pm.
