^^yep the voices were a tad annoying, but they cant help that can they?

and lightwing seemed a much more down to earth kinda guy to me, but then watched only 20-30mins of it. I found that guy with Autism rather annoying and arrogant though

Joss was the one that denied emotion. I felt sorry for Saul having put in all that work only to come out with a bronze again. Does anyone what the questions are like are they an extension from FP3 type questions or totally different?

I think they are just really difficult question which will require a lot of complex, maths, because the training for the competition was crazy.

Watching it made me realise just how rubbish I actually am at maths. I think I'd rather have a typical teenage life than their lives though. Not that I mean that in a nasty way or anything.

Jonathan was my fave

Maybe not (I proclaim no formal knowledge upon this subject [however]). One of them sounded as though they had some form of nasal problem, and there were a few others whose voices merely annoyed me. (I do not think that all of them had annoying voices though [I believe]).

I guess its just the way clever people speak

Daniel, the one who got married at the end also had autism. It was actually the same type of autism as Jos (sp?) had, aspergers syndrome. It did prove his point about how autism varies though.
I couldn't help but to feel sorry for Jos, even though pity is the last thing he's probably looking for, it is hard to imagine what it'd be like to have a child who doesn't show any sort of emotion towards you at all. At the start the mother said he did, but then he said himself that the only use he had for his parents was the likes of shelter and food. Not so endearing, eh?

wow now im really interested to learn more about Autism

What Jos said did seem rather cold to me, but remember the tutor who won gold twice? all he could do was describe winning as nice, since he couldnt express it in words, Jos may be similar who knows

Mate, the questions on there will be galaxies away from FP3, rather than just a mere extension. I know 2 people in my FM class who did BMO2 (first round is for everyone, 2nd is for the top achievers in each school) and got scores of 0 and 1.

I really enjoyed this programme and found it fascinating. I would've liked to see more of the maths involved, but it was still very interesting.

No, Jos never got through to the finals.
The man with the full beard was team trainer sort of thing, I think...

No, Jos was one of the reserves for the IMO team. There was a lot of focus on him during the first 3/4 of the programme. He usually isolated himself from all group activities, including the time spent at the training camps.

Yeah, I think that's right. He seemed like the top guy for the team. His name is Geoff Smith - he's a lecturer at Bath University.
