  Narrator: Part Five. Listening Exercise 5.1. Listen to the following talk about two famous universities inEngland. Complete the table with the essential details of what you hear:
The universities of Oxford1 and Cambridge are justifiably2 world famous. Situated3 83 miles from each other, and56 and 55 miles from London respectively, both universities are at the heart of the architecturally beautiful citiesthey dominate. Oxford University, founded in the late 11th century, is only a one a half hour train journey fromLondon (the River Thames is close by), and has 36 colleges, 13,000 undergraduates and a number of importantlibraries and museums. The Ashmolean Museum is the oldest public museum in the country. Steeped in history,the city of Oxford, with a population of over 120,000, is flooded with thousands of tourists throughout the year,who come to see such famous colleges as University College and Queen's College; the former being known forsuch famous alumni as the poet Shelley and President Bill Clinton. Regrettably, women have only been granteddegrees from Oxford since 1920. At Cambridge University, on the other hand, only 3 colleges accepted womenuntil the mid4 1970s; some holding out until the late 1980s. Then again, Cambridge has 7 colleges founded bywomen. Cambridge University was founded later than Oxford, in the 13th century, but can boast one of the mostspectacular buildings in Europe - King's College, also famous for its Boy's Choir5. Other important colleges atCambridge include Trinity College (Isaac Newton and Prince Charles were among those who attended) and JesusCollege. The city of Cambridge, situated on the River Cam, has a population of just 100,000 and is a much morequiet and peaceful place than Oxford, drawing fewer tourists. The rivalry6 between the two universities culminatesin an annual boat race, which, because of the crowds, is nowadays held in London.
