Hello, it's me, The Brain.

0:00:030:00:05

These are the kind of challenges our team will face today.

0:00:050:00:08

Have a go at home.

0:00:080:00:09

Count the missing bricks.

0:00:120:00:13

Try one more.

0:00:180:00:20

Memorise the name and image.

0:00:230:00:24

I'll relieve your anxiety by giving you the answers

0:00:280:00:31

at the end of the show.

0:00:310:00:32

Now let's see if four brains are better than one.

0:00:330:00:36

It's Beat The Brain.

0:00:360:00:38

APPLAUSE

0:00:550:00:57

Here's a man who can have my number any time he likes - John Craven.

0:00:570:01:02

Well, thank you very much.

0:01:020:01:03

Hello, everybody and welcome to Beat The Brain,

0:01:030:01:05

the show that tests your mind not your general knowledge.

0:01:050:01:09

So, Brain, how are you going to treat us in the next 30 minutes?

0:01:090:01:12

I will treat you lovingly, my Johnny. With the others I'll be ruthless.

0:01:120:01:17

And believe me, that's no empty threat.

0:01:170:01:18

So, let's find out how our team copes. Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:180:01:22

I'm Marcus and I'm a safeguarding officer.

0:01:220:01:25

I'm Richard and I'm a police response officer.

0:01:250:01:27

I'm Dan and I'm a police detective.

0:01:270:01:29

I'm Tom, I'm the team captain and I'm also a police detective.

0:01:290:01:33

APPLAUSE

0:01:330:01:34

Well, welcome everybody.

0:01:340:01:36

Obviously, an arresting team and Tom, you're the captain,

0:01:360:01:39

-have you chosen a name?

-We have, yes. West Mids' Finest.

0:01:390:01:42

Why is that, West Midlands Finest?

0:01:420:01:44

It's a play on the words from an American police film, Brooklyn's Finest.

0:01:440:01:48

-So, you're all members of the West Midlands force, are you?

-Yes.

0:01:480:01:51

-And you're all in a football team, as well?

-That's right.

0:01:510:01:54

We all know each other through football, mainly.

0:01:540:01:56

But we all work for the West Midlands, as well.

0:01:560:01:58

-So, are you in a West Midlands Police football team?

-Yes.

0:01:580:02:01

And how do you do?

0:02:010:02:02

-LAUGHTER

-It's hard work at times

0:02:020:02:06

trying to juggle football and work and home lives but we do well enough at times.

0:02:060:02:11

-So, are you ready to kick off now?

-Yes.

0:02:110:02:13

Let's find out how you do, because this is how it works.

0:02:130:02:16

The show's Brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:160:02:18

Now, The Brain will select four Zones out of those six for you to play.

0:02:260:02:29

And Tom, as team captain, you've got to decide which team member

0:02:290:02:32

you think will play best in each of the Zones, OK?

0:02:320:02:35

You'll face a series of questions in each Zone, with each correct answer

0:02:350:02:39

adding three seconds to what we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:390:02:42

The more time you build up, the more chance you have of beating The Brain

0:02:420:02:46

in today's final, and walking away with the jackpot of £3,000.

0:02:460:02:50

So, let's find out which Zone you'll be facing first.

0:02:500:02:54

So, Brain, the Zone, please.

0:02:540:02:56

-Logic. So Tom, who should play in the Logic Zone?

-Yeah.

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

0:03:020:03:06

-You're going to go with me?

-You was confident.

-I'll have a go.

0:03:060:03:09

So, it's Marcus. Come and join me, then, in the Logic Zone.

0:03:090:03:12

APPLAUSE

0:03:130:03:15

Good to see you, Marcus.

0:03:160:03:18

Now, what kind of role do you have in the West Midlands Police?

0:03:180:03:21

I safeguard domestic violence victims.

0:03:210:03:23

So, when a case has been established you make sure they're safe?

0:03:230:03:26

I try and make sure that there are things in place

0:03:260:03:28

so that it doesn't happen again with that person.

0:03:280:03:31

On a lighter note, I think you can limbo quite well, can't you?

0:03:310:03:34

I'm not bad. Sometimes after a few shandies.

0:03:340:03:37

I have been known to do a limbo as a bit of a party trick.

0:03:370:03:40

Well, we find now how good you are

0:03:400:03:42

at playing Logic. Brain, can we have the first game, please

0:03:420:03:45

-Hello, Marcus.

-Hello, Brain.

-I hear you're scared of monkeys.

0:03:450:03:49

Only ones that are chasing after me in Thailand, yes.

0:03:500:03:52

LAUGHTER

0:03:520:03:53

You're sitting next to a cheeky monkey.

0:03:530:03:56

HE CHUCKLES

0:03:560:03:57

-OK.

-Don't know about that.

-Think she likes you.

0:03:580:04:02

Here's your first game.

0:04:020:04:03

Three darts will be thrown.

0:04:060:04:07

You must add up the score and subtract it from the total.

0:04:070:04:11

To help you out, have a trial run.

0:04:110:04:12

Double 10,

0:04:140:04:15

8,

0:04:150:04:16

3.

0:04:160:04:17

That'll leave 470.

0:04:180:04:20

-470, well done. You a darts player?

-I don't really play darts -

0:04:220:04:25

my arithmetic's all right, they usually use me to score

0:04:250:04:28

when they're playing darts.

0:04:280:04:29

-So, this could be your sort of game, then?

-Fingers crossed, yeah.

0:04:290:04:33

So, Brain, over to you.

0:04:330:04:34

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:04:340:04:38

Please remember, Marcus, I can only accept your first answer.

0:04:380:04:41

Marcus, your game starts now.

0:04:410:04:44

16,

0:04:460:04:47

7,

0:04:470:04:48

11.

0:04:480:04:49

-378.

-378...

-Oh, sugar!

0:04:500:04:53

..is that right?

0:04:530:04:54

-467.

-Miles out!

-Next one, please.

0:04:540:04:56

16,

0:04:560:04:57

18,

0:04:570:04:58

double 7.

0:04:580:05:00

44, 48... Leaves 419.

0:05:000:05:04

419, you're saying.

0:05:040:05:05

Absolutely right. One to go.

0:05:050:05:07

6,

0:05:070:05:08

double 19,

0:05:080:05:09

triple 13.

0:05:090:05:11

38, 44...

0:05:110:05:13

..74, 83...

0:05:140:05:16

..leaves...

0:05:170:05:18

-..436.

-436.

0:05:190:05:23

-Oh, 336. Oh, no.

-No.

0:05:230:05:26

336, having a mare, there.

0:05:260:05:27

Oh, dear. Never mind.

0:05:270:05:29

-Better luck when you're scoring at the pub?

-Yeah.

0:05:310:05:35

-You've got three seconds in the Brain Bank to start with.

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:05:350:05:38

See if you can put a few more in now as you play game two.

0:05:380:05:41

Here's your second game, Marcus.

0:05:410:05:43

Rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper and paper beats rock.

0:05:460:05:50

You need to identify all three missing items.

0:05:500:05:53

Marcus, to get your eye in, have a trial run.

0:05:530:05:56

-What's the top one on the left?

-Top one on the left is rock.

0:05:590:06:02

The middle one is, again, rock.

0:06:040:06:07

-And the bottom right one would be scissors.

-Scissors.

0:06:070:06:10

-Rock, rock, scissors, you're saying.

-Yeah.

-Is that correct?

0:06:100:06:12

You are right. You used to play this in the playground?

0:06:120:06:15

Yeah, quite a lot, yeah.

0:06:150:06:16

-So, ready to play for real?

-Ready to play for real.

0:06:160:06:19

Can we have the game, please?

0:06:190:06:20

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:06:200:06:24

But please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:06:240:06:27

Your game starts now.

0:06:270:06:29

Top one, paper.

0:06:300:06:32

Second one, scissors.

0:06:320:06:34

Third one, rock.

0:06:340:06:36

Paper, scissors, rock, you're saying... Yeah, well done. Next one.

0:06:360:06:39

First one is scissors.

0:06:390:06:41

Second one, paper.

0:06:410:06:43

Third one, scissors.

0:06:430:06:44

Yes, well done. One to go.

0:06:450:06:47

And the first one is paper,

0:06:470:06:50

second one's scissors,

0:06:500:06:52

third one, paper.

0:06:520:06:53

Paper, scissors, paper. Yes!

0:06:530:06:55

Well, that was very good.

0:06:550:06:57

-That was a very, very impressive game.

-Thank you.

0:06:570:07:00

You really redeemed yourself on that one.

0:07:000:07:02

I know, I needed to after that first one.

0:07:020:07:03

That was one of my stronger ones, I felt, as well.

0:07:030:07:06

Never mind, you were strong on the second one. Wasn't he, Brain?

0:07:060:07:08

Yes. Marcus, in true limbo fashion you suddenly bent over backwards

0:07:080:07:12

to get all those right.

0:07:120:07:14

You added 12 seconds in that Zone, which means West Mids' Finest

0:07:140:07:18

-have 12 seconds in their Brain Bank.

-A very good score, Marcus.

0:07:180:07:22

-Lovely to meet you.

-Thank you very much.

0:07:220:07:24

Please rejoin your fellow officers.

0:07:240:07:27

Now it's time to find out what our next Zone is going to be

0:07:270:07:29

and who is going to take it on. So, Brain, the Zone, please.

0:07:290:07:33

Observation. So, Captain Tom, who is going to play in this Zone?

0:07:390:07:43

-You should all be good at Observation!

-I'd like to think so!

0:07:430:07:46

THEY LAUGH AND MURMUR

0:07:460:07:47

Until there's a bit of pressure on, the camera!

0:07:470:07:49

-I'm happy with Observation.

-Come and join me, Captain Tom, then.

0:07:490:07:52

APPLAUSE

0:07:550:07:56

-Good to see, Tom. Now, I hear you have a nickname....

-Apparently.

0:07:560:07:59

-..on the football team. What's that?

-Badmin.

-Badmin? What does that mean?

0:07:590:08:04

Well, I'm the secretary of the club so I do all the admin.

0:08:040:08:07

And when they think I've done a bad job, I then become Badmin.

0:08:070:08:10

-So you're bad at admin?

-Apparently.

0:08:100:08:12

-And yet they still choose you as their captain?

-Yeah.

0:08:120:08:15

I'm the only one that can get these three together

0:08:150:08:17

and actually get them in one place at one time.

0:08:170:08:19

-And how do you feel about playing this particular Zone?

-I felt strong.

0:08:190:08:24

It's part of my day-to-day job, as well, I'd like to think.

0:08:240:08:26

I don't want to big that up too much

0:08:260:08:28

in case I don't particularly do well.

0:08:280:08:30

So, let's see how you do.

0:08:300:08:32

Brain, what's the first game that Tom is going to be playing?

0:08:320:08:35

-Hello, Captain Tom.

-Hello, Brain.

-I hear you're a comic book geek.

0:08:350:08:40

-Certainly am.

-Who's your favourite?

-Spider-Man.

0:08:400:08:44

Well, Spider-Man Tom, today I'm going to be your Green Goblin.

0:08:440:08:48

-Let battle commence.

-Let's go for it.

0:08:480:08:50

This is your first game.

0:08:500:08:51

What's the difference in value between the two totals?

0:08:540:08:58

To give you some practice, Captain Tom, here's a trial run.

0:08:580:09:01

OK... 1p.

0:09:060:09:08

1p, you're saying. Well done, yeah.

0:09:080:09:10

Are you a person who always checks their change?

0:09:100:09:13

I'm constantly putting change in my kids' piggy banks,

0:09:130:09:15

so constantly handling it.

0:09:150:09:17

Well, let's see if you can do well against The Brain, then,

0:09:170:09:20

in this round. Off we go.

0:09:200:09:22

Captain Tom, you only have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:09:220:09:27

-And please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

-OK.

0:09:270:09:30

Your game starts now.

0:09:300:09:32

-I'm going to go for 3p.

-3p, you're saying.

0:09:360:09:39

You're right, yes. Next one.

0:09:390:09:40

30 seconds.

0:09:470:09:48

-You can pass if you want.

-No...

0:09:540:09:56

-£1.50.

-£1.50, you think.

0:10:000:10:04

49p. The last one coming up, with 12 seconds.

0:10:040:10:07

Quickly. Guess.

0:10:150:10:17

-No.

-Sorry. Your time is out, I'm afraid.

0:10:170:10:21

-OK.

-You need to check your small change more carefully in future!

0:10:210:10:24

Yes.

0:10:240:10:26

So the answer was...£1.50.

0:10:260:10:29

So, let's go on to the second game now.

0:10:290:10:31

-I was very harsh there, wasn't I, Tom?

-Yeah, that was a tough one.

0:10:310:10:35

Here's your second game.

0:10:350:10:37

Count the number of missing bricks.

0:10:390:10:42

To get you in the groove, have a trial run.

0:10:420:10:45

How many bricks have disappeared?

0:10:490:10:52

Five, six, seven...

0:10:530:10:54

-11.

-11, you say.

0:10:540:10:56

Is he correct?

0:10:560:10:58

-12, it was. You missed one.

-OK.

0:10:580:11:01

-Ready to play for real?

-As ready as I'll ever be.

0:11:010:11:04

OK, off we go.

0:11:040:11:05

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:11:050:11:08

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:11:080:11:12

Your game starts now.

0:11:120:11:13

19.

0:11:220:11:23

19, you're saying... Absolutely correct. Second one.

0:11:230:11:26

-18.

-18, you're saying.

0:11:380:11:40

17, it was. Third one coming up.

0:11:400:11:42

20.

0:11:550:11:58

-Yes. Absolutely right, 20. Just in time.

-Just about.

0:11:580:12:01

-How do you feel after all that?

-A little less stressed.

0:12:010:12:06

So, let's see what Brain made of your contribution.

0:12:060:12:09

-I'm an evil villain, aren't I, Tom?

-Certainly are.

-Whoa-ha-ha!

0:12:090:12:13

You added nine seconds in that Zone, which means in total

0:12:130:12:17

West Mids' Finest have 21 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:12:170:12:20

That is not bad at all!

0:12:200:12:21

APPLAUSE

0:12:210:12:23

-Well done, Tom.

-Ta.

-Nice to meet you.

0:12:230:12:25

-If you could rejoin your fellow team-mates.

-Thank you.

0:12:250:12:28

So, we're about halfway through the show now, so the two who

0:12:280:12:31

haven't played yet, Richard and Dan, how are you feeling?

0:12:310:12:34

All right. To be fair, it's probably not as easy once you're up there

0:12:340:12:38

and the pressure's on.

0:12:380:12:40

Still quietly confident that I can deliver when I get up there.

0:12:400:12:43

-They've not done badly, have they, Dan?

-No, not at all.

0:12:430:12:46

I'm getting worried about which Zone I'm going to get now.

0:12:460:12:49

They're quickly dwindling, so...we'll see.

0:12:490:12:52

Right, let's find out which Zone is next and who is going to take on.

0:12:520:12:55

Brain, the Zone, please.

0:12:550:12:57

It's Memory. So Tom, is that going to be Richard or Dan?

0:13:010:13:05

-I've got an awful memory, I have, so...

-I guess I'll take this one.

0:13:050:13:09

Take one for the team, then.

0:13:090:13:11

Richard, come and join me, please, in the Memory Zone.

0:13:110:13:14

APPLAUSE

0:13:140:13:15

-How are you?

-Good, thank you.

0:13:170:13:18

-Now, you're a response officer in the police force.

-Correct, I am, yes.

0:13:180:13:22

-That means you get to sound the siren and flash the red lights and things?

-Yeah, basically.

0:13:220:13:26

We're the front line, the tip of the sword,

0:13:260:13:29

if you like, when that 999 call comes in.

0:13:290:13:31

99 times out of 100, we're responding first to that incident.

0:13:310:13:35

Right. And as a footballer, are you any good?

0:13:350:13:38

Well, obviously open to debate, but I like to think I'm all right, yeah.

0:13:380:13:42

Well, I have heard that you've been on Match Of The Day.

0:13:420:13:45

Yes, nearly ten years ago now.

0:13:450:13:48

I scored a goal in the FA Cup for Leamington, which was quite a good

0:13:480:13:51

goal, albeit it in a 9-1 defeat in the first round of the FA Cup.

0:13:510:13:54

-A 9-1 defeat?

-Yeah, to Colchester, but...

-So you scored the only goal?

0:13:540:13:57

Yeah, I got a consolation goal, but it was a good goal and...

0:13:570:14:00

-And it got on Match Of The Day.

-Yeah, it got some praise.

0:14:000:14:03

-And it meant your team were not whitewashed.

-Absolutely. We took something from the day.

0:14:030:14:06

-You're not going to be whitewashed today.

-I hope not. We're doing OK.

-You've done all right so far.

-Yeah.

0:14:060:14:11

Let's see how you do in the Memory Zone. There's another 18 precious seconds on offer in this Zone,

0:14:110:14:16

that's three seconds for every correct answer.

0:14:160:14:19

-Are you ready to play?

-I'm ready to play.

0:14:190:14:21

Brain, can we have the first game, please?

0:14:210:14:23

-Hello, hello, hello, Richard.

-Hello, Brain.

0:14:230:14:26

You're a fair cop!

0:14:260:14:27

Thank you.

0:14:270:14:29

Let's get on with it, shall we? Here's the first game.

0:14:290:14:32

Richard, you will see four named pictures.

0:14:350:14:38

The pictures will disappear. One will come back. Tell us what its name is.

0:14:380:14:42

You can warm up with a trial run.

0:14:420:14:44

-Who was the telephone?

-I think the telephone was Hartnell.

0:14:500:14:54

Hartnell, you're saying. Is that right?

0:14:540:14:57

It was indeed!

0:14:570:14:59

You should be good in the Memory Zone.

0:14:590:15:01

-You need a pretty good memory in your job.

-You do, you do.

0:15:010:15:04

-So, let's see how you do, shall we?

-Let's go.

-Let's play for real.

0:15:040:15:07

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:15:070:15:10

Your game starts now.

0:15:100:15:12

-Sybil.

-Sybil, you're saying.

0:15:170:15:20

Is that right...? Yes. Correct. Next one.

0:15:200:15:22

-Who's that?

-That's Nero.

0:15:280:15:30

Nero.

0:15:300:15:32

Yes, well done. You do have a good memory.

0:15:320:15:34

I think that was Marge.

0:15:400:15:43

Marge, you're saying. Let's see if that's right.

0:15:430:15:46

No, it was Homer.

0:15:460:15:47

Never mind. That was a good start for you, Richard.

0:15:470:15:51

-Not too bad.

-Are you ready for the next game?

-I am ready.

0:15:510:15:53

Right. Off we go.

0:15:530:15:55

Here's your next game, Richard.

0:15:550:15:57

Identify the winning line in this game of noughts and crosses.

0:15:590:16:04

Here's a trial run.

0:16:040:16:05

A, B, C or D?

0:16:110:16:12

Oh...

0:16:120:16:14

I got it in my head that it was something completely different.

0:16:140:16:17

Um...

0:16:170:16:19

This is a guess now, but I'm going to go with B.

0:16:190:16:21

I'm pretty sure there was a zero in the middle.

0:16:210:16:24

-Well, you're right.

-Yeah.

-Well done.

0:16:240:16:25

-Do you play noughts and crosses?

-Now and again, yeah.

0:16:250:16:28

One of those things.

0:16:280:16:29

What I like to do when we play this game is to concentrate

0:16:290:16:32

-either on the noughts or the crosses.

-OK. That'll do me then.

0:16:320:16:35

It's good enough for you, it's good enough for me.

0:16:350:16:37

-One or the other. So, shall we play?

-Let's play.

-OK, Brain.

0:16:370:16:41

A game, please.

0:16:410:16:42

Please remember, Richard, I can only accept your first answer.

0:16:420:16:46

Your game starts now.

0:16:460:16:47

-Which one?

-That was D.

-D, you're saying.

0:16:530:16:56

Let's see if that's right. You were very confident.

0:16:560:16:59

Yes, you are. That's correct. Next one.

0:16:590:17:01

-And on this occasion, it was C.

-C. Very confident. Is that right?

0:17:080:17:11

-Yes, it is. My tip's working.

-It is.

-Next one.

0:17:110:17:14

-Based on your tip, I'm going with A.

-A, all my fault.

0:17:230:17:27

Yeah, well...

0:17:270:17:29

That's good! That was maximum, nine seconds in that round.

0:17:290:17:33

-A very good Zone for you, wasn't it?

-Yeah, OK.

0:17:330:17:35

So, Brain, what do you think about Richard?

0:17:350:17:37

Well, Richard, that performance may have just earned you some

0:17:370:17:40

extra cash in today's final. And I like your beard.

0:17:400:17:43

-Thank you.

-Richard, you added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:17:430:17:47

This means in total,

0:17:470:17:48

West Mids' Finest have 36 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:17:480:17:53

-That is good, yeah. Well done, Richard.

-Thank you.

0:17:530:17:55

-Nice to meet you.

-Thank you, and yourself.

-Rejoin the team.

-APPLAUSE

0:17:550:17:59

-So, Dan, you're the only player left now.

-I know.

0:17:590:18:02

I was hoping it wouldn't boil down to this.

0:18:020:18:05

Why don't you come and join me

0:18:050:18:07

and we'll find out which of the three Zones you'll be facing.

0:18:070:18:10

APPLAUSE

0:18:100:18:13

-Hi, John.

-How are you right now, then?

0:18:130:18:17

I'm all right. Bit nervous, but erm...

0:18:170:18:20

Cos I don't know what my last Zone's going to be.

0:18:200:18:23

No, because we've got three left. We've got Language, Orientation and Multitasking.

0:18:230:18:27

-Which one would you like?

-I'd like Language.

-Why's that?

0:18:270:18:30

My mum's a retired English teacher, so I was corrected a lot as a child.

0:18:300:18:35

-So I'm hoping I'd be all right at Language.

-Which one would you dread?

0:18:350:18:39

Multitasking.

0:18:390:18:41

Just not very good at multitasking, if I'm honest.

0:18:410:18:45

So I'll probably get that one!

0:18:450:18:46

-And you've been a police officer for how long?

-11 years now.

0:18:460:18:49

-Have you always played with the football team as well?

-Yeah.

0:18:490:18:53

I started playing football with the police team as soon as I joined, so over a decade ago.

0:18:530:18:58

Have you had any nasty accidents?

0:18:580:19:00

Yeah, I've got one which I sport the scar from. On my head here.

0:19:000:19:04

This was caused by running into one of my own players.

0:19:040:19:07

-One of your own players?

-Yeah. And we both ended up in A&E.

0:19:070:19:12

-So I'm glad I avoided that Zone.

-Yes. Well, I hope nothing disastrous is going to happen to you today.

0:19:120:19:17

-I hope not.

-Let's find out which of the Zones you're going to be playing.

0:19:170:19:21

It's Multitasking. What do you think of that?

0:19:250:19:28

Well, that's typical, isn't it? So...

0:19:280:19:31

I'll give it my best shot and see how we get on.

0:19:310:19:33

Brain, reveal the first game that Dan is going to be playing today.

0:19:330:19:38

-Hello, Detective Dan.

-Hello, Brain.

-Don't be nervous.

0:19:380:19:42

-How do you like your sausages?

-Grilled.

-Correct. See? You're good.

0:19:420:19:47

-There we go.

-Here's your first game.

0:19:470:19:50

Tell me how many people are left on the bus, not including the driver.

0:19:520:19:57

Have yourself a trial run.

0:19:570:19:59

-How many do you reckon? Not including the driver.

-I think two.

0:20:050:20:08

Two, you're saying. Is he right?

0:20:080:20:11

-You are indeed. Yeah. So, are you ready to play?

-Yeah, let's do it.

0:20:110:20:14

-Off we go.

-Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:20:140:20:19

Your game starts now.

0:20:190:20:20

-How many on the bus?

-One.

0:20:260:20:27

One, you say.

0:20:270:20:29

Is that right?

0:20:290:20:30

Yes, it is indeed. So, the next one, please. The next bus.

0:20:300:20:33

I was trying to count on my fingers and I ran out, so um...

0:20:450:20:48

-I'm going to go with three.

-Three on the bus.

0:20:480:20:51

Let's see.

0:20:510:20:52

Yes, you were right. Well, you did well.

0:20:520:20:54

You're better than you thought at multitasking.

0:20:540:20:57

Proved the women wrong!

0:20:570:20:58

Here comes your last one.

0:20:580:21:00

How many left on that bus?

0:21:110:21:13

-I think there's four left.

-Four, you're thinking.

0:21:130:21:15

Let's see if that's right.

0:21:150:21:17

-And it is indeed! Well done!

-APPLAUSE

0:21:170:21:19

Yeah, a lot of people find that a really difficult game, but not you.

0:21:190:21:24

-You got nine seconds.

-Yeah, that was all right, I think.

0:21:240:21:27

-So, let's have game two, shall we?

-Yeah.

-Please, Brain?

0:21:270:21:31

-I didn't like that. I didn't like that at all, Dan.

-Sorry, Brain.

0:21:310:21:35

Here's your second game.

0:21:350:21:36

Dan, when the number of sheep matches the number I say,

0:21:380:21:43

add that number to the total.

0:21:430:21:45

Here's a trial run.

0:21:450:21:47

Three.

0:21:470:21:48

Three.

0:21:480:21:49

Four.

0:21:490:21:50

One.

0:21:500:21:51

Two.

0:21:510:21:52

Two.

0:21:520:21:53

Three.

0:21:530:21:54

One.

0:21:540:21:55

Two.

0:21:550:21:56

Four.

0:21:560:21:58

-I'm going to go with 12.

-12, you're saying.

0:21:580:22:01

Let's have a look and see. Yes, you're absolutely right.

0:22:010:22:04

You obviously understand the rules of this game,

0:22:040:22:07

-which can be quite complicated.

-Yeah.

0:22:070:22:09

Again, I'm hoping they don't get too quick cos that's

0:22:090:22:12

-when I'll struggle to keep up.

-Oh, you never know with the Brain!

0:22:120:22:15

I'm sure they well might.

0:22:150:22:17

-So be prepared for that. OK?

-Right.

0:22:170:22:20

-Ready to play?

-Yeah, let's do it.

0:22:200:22:21

Off we go.

0:22:210:22:22

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:22:220:22:25

Your game starts now.

0:22:250:22:27

Four. Three.

0:22:270:22:29

Four. One.

0:22:290:22:31

Three. Two.

0:22:310:22:32

Three. One.

0:22:320:22:34

Three. Two.

0:22:340:22:35

-What's the total?

-I think it's 12, John.

0:22:370:22:39

12, you reckon, Dan. Let's see if that's right.

0:22:390:22:41

Yes, it is. Well done. Next one.

0:22:410:22:43

Three. Three.

0:22:430:22:46

One. One.

0:22:460:22:47

One. Four.

0:22:470:22:49

Two. Two.

0:22:490:22:50

One. Three.

0:22:500:22:51

Is it eight, John?

0:22:520:22:54

Eight is your total. Let's see if that's correct.

0:22:540:22:56

-It is. You're on your way to maximum seconds.

-It's the biggie now.

0:22:560:23:00

In this Zone, so one more game.

0:23:000:23:03

Three. Two.

0:23:040:23:05

Four. Four.

0:23:050:23:06

One. Four.

0:23:060:23:07

Three. Two.

0:23:070:23:09

Two. Three.

0:23:090:23:10

Oh, I nearly lost it at the end. I'm going to go with 14, John.

0:23:120:23:14

14. Let's see if that's correct.

0:23:140:23:17

-And it is. Fantastic! Well done!

-APPLAUSE

0:23:170:23:20

That was a really, really good performance.

0:23:200:23:23

Yes, the Brain tried to beat and she didn't, did you, Brain?

0:23:230:23:26

Absolutely not. A clean sweep, Dan.

0:23:260:23:31

You added 18 seconds in that Zone.

0:23:310:23:33

West Mids' Finest have finished with a

0:23:330:23:36

grand total of 54 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:360:23:40

-APPLAUSE

-Well, that should be very useful indeed. Good to see you, Dan.

0:23:400:23:43

Please rejoin the team.

0:23:430:23:45

Well, we've finished the individual Zones now

0:23:450:23:47

and it's time for to try to beat the Brain one last time

0:23:470:23:51

and take home some really serious cash in today's final.

0:23:510:23:54

Well, West Mids' Finest, you've racked up 54 seconds

0:23:570:24:01

in your Brain Bank and now you have the chance to turn time into money.

0:24:010:24:05

You need to answer eight questions correctly, that's two each,

0:24:050:24:08

within the 54 seconds to win today's jackpot of £3,000.

0:24:080:24:12

If you can't do that, fear not, because The Brain has given

0:24:120:24:15

you another two minutes to get the correct answers.

0:24:150:24:18

Once you hit two minutes though,

0:24:180:24:19

the money starts counting down at the rate of £25 a second.

0:24:190:24:23

So the longer you take, the less you win,

0:24:230:24:25

and when the time runs out, so does all the cash.

0:24:250:24:29

OK? Tom, as the captain,

0:24:290:24:31

you've chosen the order in which your team are going to play.

0:24:310:24:34

-What's your logic behind that?

-I've taken Daniel as the strongest,

0:24:340:24:37

as he answered all his questions correctly,

0:24:370:24:39

and we've gone working backwards, so Rich was the second strongest

0:24:390:24:43

and then me and Marcus tried our best.

0:24:430:24:45

LAUGHTER

0:24:450:24:47

Right. It's time to get serious. Let's start today's final.

0:24:470:24:51

Over to you, Brain.

0:24:510:24:53

You'll only face questions from the games you've already seen today,

0:24:530:24:56

but for every game in the final, I will only accept your first answer.

0:24:560:25:00

West Mids' Finest, beat me if you can.

0:25:000:25:04

Yes, that's the big challenge. Can you beat the Brain?

0:25:040:25:07

And as always, Dan, we'll start off with the player on the left, that's you.

0:25:070:25:10

Give me two correct answers before I can pass on to the next

0:25:100:25:14

player down the line and so on. Let's start the final.

0:25:140:25:17

Remember the image and name.

0:25:190:25:22

Compo.

0:25:240:25:26

Yes.

0:25:260:25:27

Three, 19, treble 7.

0:25:270:25:30

Subtract the score.

0:25:300:25:31

558.

0:25:340:25:36

No.

0:25:380:25:39

Two. One.

0:25:390:25:40

Four. Two.

0:25:400:25:42

One.

0:25:420:25:43

Five.

0:25:440:25:46

Yes. Richard, count the missing bricks.

0:25:470:25:50

12.

0:25:540:25:55

Yes.

0:25:550:25:57

Which line won the game?

0:26:000:26:02

D.

0:26:040:26:05

Yes. Marcus.

0:26:060:26:08

Paper, scissors, scissors.

0:26:100:26:13

Yes.

0:26:130:26:14

How many on the bus?

0:26:190:26:21

Four.

0:26:210:26:23

Yes. Tom. What's the difference?

0:26:230:26:26

30p.

0:26:310:26:33

Yes.

0:26:330:26:34

Double 19, four, five.

0:26:340:26:36

Subtract the score.

0:26:360:26:38

Pass.

0:26:430:26:44

Merry.

0:26:520:26:53

Stop the clock.

0:26:530:26:55

APPLAUSE

0:26:550:26:57

Well, congratulations - eight correct answers,

0:26:570:27:00

you've won £2,000.

0:27:000:27:02

Yes!

0:27:020:27:03

Well done, everybody.

0:27:050:27:08

A tremendous victory, West Mids'. Well done. Brain, it was a fair cop.

0:27:100:27:15

Absolutely. You caught me bang to rights.

0:27:150:27:19

What a fine bunch of gentlemen you are. Congratulations.

0:27:190:27:22

-Cheers, Brain.

-Well done, everybody. I hope you enjoyed playing the game.

0:27:220:27:26

And thank you, everybody at home, for watching today.

0:27:260:27:28

I hope you enjoyed it as well.

0:27:280:27:30

-For now though, it's goodbye from West Mids' Finest...

-Bye.

-Goodbye!

0:27:300:27:35

-Goodbye from the Brain...

-Goodbye.

0:27:350:27:38

And from me. See you again next time.

0:27:380:27:39

Before you go, let's see the answers to the questions

0:27:430:27:45

I set you at home at the start of the show.

0:27:450:27:48

Count the missing bricks.

0:27:500:27:52

The answer is...

0:27:570:27:59

And what about the second game? Memorise the names and image.
