The current series has just finished with St John's, Cambridge coming out as deserved winners.
It was the 47th series, and
Jeremy Paxman's 24th series, taking him past Bamber Gascoigne's total of 23 series. However, he is still quite a way behind in terms
of episodes hosted; by the end of the 2017-18 series he had hosted 782 regular (student-series) shows. Even adding on the 61 Professional, 71 Christmas, 18 Reunited, and 9 Specials gives 941 shows in total, compared to Bamber Gascoigne's (approximately) 975 shows.

Do email me (if this fails then try smb1001 at gmail) if you can fill in any of the many gaps, although it is inevitable that many of the fixtures and results are now lost as Granada only has a handful of recordings from the series before 1980.
