Crunchtime - DTBD documentary

So that time is finally upon us: the documentary shot last year during Dare to be Digital is going to be screened this week:

Dare to be Digital televised in C4 documentary

Long-running student development contest Dare to be Digital is to be featured in a new three-part Channel 4 documentary in the UK.
Called Crunchtime, the show is being produced by Headlight Pictures and follows 15 international teams as they compete in the University of Abertay's challenge to create a working video game within just 10 weeks.
The first part of the documentary is due to air on Sunday, March 27 at 7:25am GMT and shows teams from as far afield as China, Sweden, India and the US acclimatising to the Scottish environment and beginning their projects.

So depending on the editing choices made by the production team, this time next week the Bears with Jetpacks could either be hailed as superheroes, idiots, or we could have been cut out completely. I for one am desperate to find out which it is (and also a little bit terrified)
