We don't know yet.

Best guess is late September or early October, but at the moment that is but a guess. But once we find out for certain, the information will certainly appear somewhere on this website so be sure to keep checking back!

What is an "ology" anyway? Does it have to be a field of study ending in "-ology", or can it include things like "terminology", "anthology", "phraseology", "ideology", "tautology" and "apology"?

Does "genealogy" count?

A humorous reference to a BT advert from almost 30 years ago, I should think.

"you've got an ology!"

With the known history of the programme, it could involve all that and more.

May I politely point out that I linked to that advert in post 1254654 above. However, I neglected to say what I was linking to, so it's quite likely that the link may have been skipped over.

You may indeed politely point out!

Anyhoo, great minds think alike and all that.

Indeed! And it is a very funny advert - probably one of the all-time classics. While googling for it, I came across this article by Richard Phillips, the advertising copywriter who wrote the original script:

https://www.thejc.com/culture/books/how-an-ology-brought-me-fame-and-riches-1.66881

I also came across an article by Nigel Farage blaming the advert for encouraging young people to study for useless degrees, which is pretty amazing given that most of them wouldn't have been born when it was originally transmitted...

I expect they may be mentioned en passant.
