Hello, I'm Rick Edwards and this is Impossible, day three.

0:00:020:00:04

Welcome to Impossible, the quiz with the third dimension.

0:00:160:00:20

Most quiz shows have just right answers and wrong answers, but here,

0:00:200:00:23

we also have impossible answers.

0:00:230:00:25

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:250:00:27

Was it...

0:00:310:00:33

The right answer is Julian,

0:00:340:00:36

the wrong answer is Dick, but none of the Famous Five

0:00:360:00:39

were called Lancelot, so that is the impossible answer.

0:00:390:00:42

Hoping to get lots of right answers

0:00:420:00:44

whilst dodging those pesky impossible answers are 30 players.

0:00:440:00:48

Hello, players.

0:00:480:00:49

-PLAYERS:

-Hiya, Rick!

0:00:490:00:51

My guys. They're going to be with us throughout the series,

0:00:510:00:53

competing not only for a daily prize pot of up to £1,500...

0:00:530:00:58

-ALL:

-Ooh.

0:00:580:01:00

..but also for a shot at the £10,000 question.

0:01:000:01:04

-ALL:

-OOH!

0:01:040:01:05

Course you're whooing, because this exclamation mark

0:01:050:01:08

is filled with 10,000 shimmering pound coins.

0:01:080:01:12

At the end of every show, our winner faces one final question.

0:01:120:01:16

Here it is - today's £10,000 question.

0:01:180:01:21

Get this right and all of that cash

0:01:210:01:24

will come flooding out.

0:01:240:01:27

Now of course, yesterday, we lost Diane.

0:01:270:01:30

She took £2,700 away. Sad to see her go, but we've got a newbie.

0:01:300:01:34

-Carol Marie's here.

-Hello!

0:01:340:01:36

Hello, Carol Marie. How are you?

0:01:360:01:37

I'm very well, thank you.

0:01:370:01:39

Really excited to be here.

0:01:390:01:40

Tell us a little bit about yourself, Carol.

0:01:400:01:42

I'm happily married with three daughters, aged 20, 14 and 8.

0:01:420:01:47

What else would you like to know, Rick?

0:01:470:01:49

If you won the £10,000, what would you spend it on?

0:01:490:01:52

We're building a house, which I designed,

0:01:520:01:54

so most of the money,

0:01:540:01:56

apart from that that my children will mug me for,

0:01:560:01:58

will be going into that.

0:01:580:01:59

Well, enjoy your time here.

0:01:590:02:00

-Thank you.

-Thanks for coming along.

0:02:000:02:02

We'll be getting to know all of our lovely players

0:02:020:02:04

as the series progresses but, for now, let's crack on.

0:02:040:02:08

You'll face five multiple-choice questions,

0:02:080:02:11

each with three answers.

0:02:110:02:12

The right answers scores you a point,

0:02:120:02:15

the wrong answer scores you nothing,

0:02:150:02:17

but if you choose the impossible answer...

0:02:170:02:19

'Impossible.'

0:02:190:02:22

No, that immediately knocks you out of today's show,

0:02:220:02:25

and you'll have to try again tomorrow.

0:02:250:02:27

After five questions, the highest scorer gets the first chance

0:02:270:02:31

to bag a place in today's final,

0:02:310:02:33

and do answer as quickly as you can, because in the event of a tie,

0:02:330:02:36

whoever locked in their answers the fastest will qualify.

0:02:360:02:41

-Are you ready? PLAYERS:

-Yes.

0:02:410:02:42

Good luck, everyone. Here's your first question.

0:02:420:02:45

Is it...

0:02:510:02:53

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:02:590:03:02

It's Vidal Sassoon.

0:03:040:03:05

So, all of you who put C, 24 of you,

0:03:050:03:07

-get a point - well done.

-Wahey!

0:03:070:03:10

Those of you who put Sorbie

0:03:100:03:12

were hoping it isn't the impossible answer.

0:03:120:03:15

Guy.

0:03:150:03:17

Do you remember the iconic bob?

0:03:170:03:19

Oh, absolutely, I used to have one(!)

0:03:190:03:21

Yeah, yeah, I can imagine you

0:03:210:03:22

looking quite iconic with a bob, actually, Guy.

0:03:220:03:25

It was between B and C and I thought C was too obvious so I went for B.

0:03:250:03:29

OK. C was just the right amount of obvious, it turns out.

0:03:290:03:32

Apparently so!

0:03:320:03:34

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:03:340:03:37

It's A, Alberto Tomba, so everyone

0:03:390:03:42

successfully avoided that - Alberto Tomba,

0:03:420:03:44

of course, is a downhill skier.

0:03:440:03:47

So, all 30 players still in, let's move on to question two.

0:03:470:03:49

There is...quite a consensus amongst you.

0:04:050:04:08

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:04:080:04:11

It is C, Cuba.

0:04:120:04:14

You all get a point. Unfortunately,

0:04:140:04:17

one person is going to be eliminated at this stage.

0:04:170:04:21

Linda.

0:04:210:04:23

-Hello!

-You went for Dominica.

0:04:230:04:26

Well, I had a one in three choice, didn't I? So...

0:04:260:04:28

Like everyone else, Linda.

0:04:280:04:30

I didn't have a scooby doo, so I just went for A.

0:04:300:04:33

Kurtis? You went for Honduras.

0:04:330:04:36

Yeah. I've been to Honduras, and I went by boat.

0:04:360:04:40

So... I kind of...

0:04:400:04:41

LAUGHTER So, you deduced...

0:04:410:04:43

That was my consideration about it being an island.

0:04:440:04:47

So, one of you, I'm afraid, will be eliminated.

0:04:470:04:50

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:510:04:53

'Impossible.'

0:04:540:04:56

-Aww!

-It's Honduras.

0:04:560:04:57

I'm sorry, Kurtis, you may well have gone by boat but it isn't an island.

0:04:570:05:02

LAUGHTER

0:05:020:05:03

Can happen.

0:05:030:05:04

Have you ever been to France, for example?

0:05:040:05:06

LAUGHTER

0:05:060:05:08

I'm sorry, Kurtis. We will see you tomorrow.

0:05:100:05:14

Let's move on to question three.

0:05:160:05:19

Is it...

0:05:250:05:27

Now, unfortunately, one of you

0:05:330:05:35

didn't lock your answer in in time.

0:05:350:05:38

Bim. What happened?

0:05:380:05:41

Well... Daydreaming...

0:05:410:05:43

You can't daydream on Impossible.

0:05:430:05:45

..about the money.

0:05:450:05:46

LAUGHTER

0:05:460:05:48

Oh, the cruel irony of that, Bim,

0:05:500:05:52

is he won't be winning the money today,

0:05:520:05:54

I'm afraid. But we will see you again tomorrow.

0:05:540:05:56

Thank you.

0:05:560:05:58

'Impossible'.

0:05:580:06:00

The rest of you,

0:06:010:06:03

let's find out the right answer.

0:06:030:06:05

It is eagle. A point to all of you who have put B.

0:06:060:06:10

Ray, you went for albatross.

0:06:100:06:13

Albatross is a golfing term,

0:06:130:06:15

I didn't know whether it was one under or two under par.

0:06:150:06:17

It's definitely not A, so...

0:06:170:06:19

I've had it wrong but I'm safe, I think.

0:06:190:06:21

That's the opposite of music to your ears, Helen.

0:06:210:06:23

Ray is saying falcon, definitely not a golfing term.

0:06:230:06:27

Let's see what the impossible answer is.

0:06:270:06:32

'Impossible.'

0:06:320:06:33

It is falcon, unfortunately.

0:06:330:06:35

It isn't a golf term.

0:06:350:06:37

Helen, you're out for today, but we'll see you tomorrow.

0:06:370:06:40

Moving on to question four, now.

0:06:420:06:44

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:06:580:07:00

It is Disraeli. A point to all of you.

0:07:020:07:05

We have got a few Peels and Gladstones amongst us, though.

0:07:060:07:09

-Jo.

-I didn't know it, but I thought Sir Robert Peel

0:07:090:07:13

was a Conservative Prime Minister.

0:07:130:07:16

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:07:160:07:20

'Impossible.'

0:07:200:07:22

It's Gladstone. He was a Prime Minister,

0:07:220:07:25

but he was a Liberal Prime Minister.

0:07:250:07:27

So, Annie, Dan and Jane, I'm afraid

0:07:270:07:31

we have to lose you today, but we'll see you again tomorrow.

0:07:310:07:34

Moving on to our final question. Question five.

0:07:360:07:39

The right answer is...

0:07:570:07:58

Kelly Rowland. So points to all of you.

0:08:000:08:04

Gerard. We know that you don't play a lot of rap music

0:08:040:08:08

-on hospital radio.

-That's true.

0:08:080:08:11

Have you ever played anything by Destiny's Child?

0:08:110:08:14

We do do requests for the children's wards on a Saturday lunchtime,

0:08:140:08:19

and I think I've probably even played it myself...

0:08:190:08:22

-Oh, Gerard. You might end up kicking yourself, here.

-Could do.

0:08:220:08:28

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:08:280:08:30

'Impossible.'

0:08:310:08:33

It's C, Sia.

0:08:330:08:36

She wasn't in Destiny's Child.

0:08:360:08:37

Sorry, Ray. There's always tomorrow.

0:08:370:08:40

-Thank you.

-We'll see you, then.

0:08:400:08:42

A fantastic ten of you have the full number of points,

0:08:440:08:48

five points, after that round.

0:08:480:08:52

But the quickest to lock in their answers,

0:08:520:08:54

for the chance to grab the first place in today's final,

0:08:540:08:57

is Gary! Congratulations.

0:08:570:09:00

APPLAUSE

0:09:000:09:02

So, Gary, on Monday, when you were here,

0:09:060:09:09

you told us that the money is going to go towards, hopefully,

0:09:090:09:13

-your first-ever car.

-Fingers crossed.

0:09:130:09:15

Have you had, in the last couple of days, any more thoughts about the sort of car you going to get?

0:09:150:09:19

It would depend on whether it's just the daily prize or the 10,000.

0:09:190:09:23

-Of course.

-I mean, I'm not fussy. Something with four wheels.

0:09:230:09:26

Anything that's not a moped, I suppose.

0:09:260:09:28

So this is your chance, as you know, Gary,

0:09:280:09:30

to put up to £500 into today's prize pot.

0:09:300:09:33

-Yes.

-And take a huge step towards playing the £10,000 question.

0:09:330:09:39

I'm going to give you a choice of four topics. Here they are.

0:09:390:09:42

Geography, Television, History, and Musical Theatre.

0:09:420:09:46

-OK.

-Which would you like to go for?

-I think I'll try Geography, please.

0:09:460:09:50

Geography. OK. I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:09:500:09:54

Here we go.

0:09:540:09:55

Pennines, Peak District, Anglesey,

0:09:550:09:59

Pembrokeshire Coast, Grampians,

0:09:590:10:01

South Downs, Chilterns,

0:10:010:10:04

Yorkshire Wolds, Exmoor.

0:10:040:10:06

The first half of the question is...

0:10:060:10:08

Which UK National Park...?

0:10:090:10:12

So, five of those answers are impossible

0:10:130:10:16

-because they're not UK national parks.

-OK.

0:10:160:10:19

So, your first job is to find those impossible answers and banish them.

0:10:190:10:24

Each impossible answer you manage to eliminate will add £100

0:10:240:10:27

to today's prize pot.

0:10:270:10:29

Where are we going to start?

0:10:290:10:31

We'll try Anglesey first, please.

0:10:310:10:34

OK. Don't reckon Anglesey is a UK national park?

0:10:340:10:37

No, I think it's an island off Wales, perhaps, hopefully.

0:10:370:10:42

So, is Anglesey an impossible answer?

0:10:420:10:45

It is.

0:10:480:10:50

-Good start.

-Yeah. Fingers crossed.

0:10:520:10:54

OK, second answer.

0:10:540:10:56

Top left, the Pennines, please.

0:10:560:10:59

Let's find out. Is Pennines an impossible answer?

0:10:590:11:02

It is!

0:11:040:11:06

-Going well.

-Yeah, guessing away...slowly.

0:11:060:11:10

The Yorkshire Wolds.

0:11:110:11:13

We want Yorkshire Wolds to be an impossible answer.

0:11:130:11:16

You are navigating your way around perfectly so far, Gary.

0:11:200:11:23

Yeah. OK, I'm trying to work out which ones definitely are, now.

0:11:230:11:27

So, the Peak District...

0:11:270:11:29

I shall try the Chilterns, please.

0:11:290:11:32

Is the Chilterns an impossible answer?

0:11:320:11:36

£400 in the prize pot.

0:11:390:11:41

It's now a 50... Well, I hope, a 50-50.

0:11:430:11:46

Grampians, South Downs...

0:11:460:11:48

-South Downs.

-OK.

0:11:480:11:50

We want South Downs to be an impossible answer.

0:11:500:11:53

Ah...

0:11:550:11:58

-Luck had to run out.

-It is a UK national park.

0:11:580:12:00

Still, £400 in the prize pot.

0:12:000:12:02

In a moment, I'm going to reveal the second half of the question,

0:12:020:12:05

and I'm now looking for the right answer.

0:12:050:12:08

-If you find it, the place in the final is yours.

-Mm-hm.

0:12:080:12:11

If you give a wrong answer,

0:12:110:12:13

the next best player will have a chance to steal your place

0:12:130:12:15

in the final.

0:12:150:12:17

I can reveal that, as always, it's Ash.

0:12:170:12:21

LAUGHTER

0:12:210:12:23

If you give me an impossible answer,

0:12:250:12:28

-and we know that there is one still remaining up there...

-Mh-hm.

0:12:280:12:31

..sadly, you will be eliminated from today's show.

0:12:310:12:34

Let's reveal the full question.

0:12:340:12:36

Which UK National Park...

0:12:380:12:40

..was the first to be established, in 1951?

0:12:410:12:46

OK.

0:12:480:12:49

I think that was the Peak District.

0:12:500:12:52

Yeah. Peak District.

0:12:540:12:56

Was the Peak District the first UK national park to be established,

0:12:560:12:59

in 1951?

0:12:590:13:01

Yes! It was!

0:13:050:13:07

-Thank you.

-Really good stuff, Gary.

0:13:080:13:10

£400 in the prize pot and a place in today's final.

0:13:100:13:14

The other impossible was...

0:13:140:13:16

-Any idea, now?

-Well, I was between South Downs and Grampians,

0:13:160:13:19

so I probably would guess Grampians.

0:13:190:13:22

It was the Grampians.

0:13:220:13:23

Gary, you're through to the final.

0:13:230:13:25

-Please take your place.

-Thank you, cheers.

0:13:250:13:26

We still have two places left in today's final.

0:13:300:13:33

Same deal as before. Five multiple-choice questions.

0:13:330:13:36

Here is your first question.

0:13:360:13:37

Is it...

0:13:440:13:46

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:13:510:13:53

It's A, Miffy. A point to all of you.

0:13:560:13:59

Only you, Paul, went for Cecily Parsley.

0:13:590:14:02

When you think of a rabbit called Cecily Parsley, a bit ridiculous,

0:14:020:14:05

isn't it? So, I probably should have gone Miffy.

0:14:050:14:08

Oh, you definitely should have gone Miffy!

0:14:080:14:10

We can agree on that, Paul. LAUGHTER

0:14:100:14:13

Craig. You went Jessica Rabbit.

0:14:130:14:15

I know it's a film, or the rabbit is in a film.

0:14:150:14:18

I think with Bob Hoskins, so...

0:14:180:14:20

But whether it was a book or not, I don't know.

0:14:200:14:23

OK, well, let's find out.

0:14:230:14:24

We're going to reveal the impossible answer.

0:14:240:14:26

'Impossible.'

0:14:280:14:30

The impossible answer is C, Jessica Rabbit.

0:14:300:14:32

The name is a bit of a curveball, I'm afraid.

0:14:320:14:36

She's the, eh...quite curvy lady in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

0:14:360:14:40

-Paul...

-Phew!

-Lucky escape!

0:14:400:14:43

-You're not kidding.

-Cecily Parsley is a rabbit in Beatrix Potter.

0:14:430:14:46

-Yeah.

-So that means, I'm afraid, we're going to lose six of you.

0:14:460:14:50

I'm sorry about that, but we will see you all tomorrow.

0:14:500:14:55

OK, the rest of you, let's move on to question two.

0:14:550:14:58

Is it...

0:15:040:15:07

So, we've got a full spread of answers again,

0:15:120:15:15

and one of you - Vinessa - thinks it's Jolteon.

0:15:150:15:19

So, let's reveal the right answer.

0:15:200:15:22

It's A, keirin.

0:15:240:15:25

So, a point to all of you who put keirin.

0:15:250:15:28

-Vinessa...

-Jolteon sounded quite sporty.

0:15:280:15:31

-It does sound sporty, I give you that.

-Thank you.

0:15:310:15:35

-And Alan.

-I watched the omnium, or half of it,

0:15:350:15:38

so I know it's a cycling event,

0:15:380:15:40

but I didn't see the beginning where I thought maybe there was a moped!

0:15:400:15:44

And the lesson there is never miss the start of a race,

0:15:440:15:48

in case there's a moped.

0:15:480:15:50

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:15:500:15:53

'Impossible.'

0:15:530:15:55

I'm afraid it's Jolteon, Vinessa. It does sound sporty,

0:15:550:15:59

but, actually, it's a Pokemon character.

0:15:590:16:01

-LAUGHTER

-Sorry!

0:16:010:16:04

No, no, no, don't be sorry.

0:16:040:16:06

It's over for you today, but we'll see you tomorrow.

0:16:060:16:09

Moving on to question three.

0:16:100:16:12

Is it...

0:16:180:16:20

So, a lot of you have gone for culottes.

0:16:230:16:26

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:16:260:16:29

It is B, culottes.

0:16:300:16:32

A point to all of you who put that.

0:16:320:16:33

-Guy...

-I'm not into ladies' skirts...

0:16:330:16:37

-As far as I know.

-You keep saying that, Guy.

0:16:370:16:40

We'll all believe you(!)

0:16:400:16:42

I just went for capri because that just seemed appropriate.

0:16:420:16:44

I didn't think it was camisole at all.

0:16:440:16:47

Obviously, I knew it was B, now. But that's why I went... So...

0:16:470:16:50

Gerard.

0:16:500:16:51

I was thinking knickers...

0:16:510:16:54

LAUGHTER Yeah.

0:16:540:16:56

A bit about the question, please, Gerard.

0:16:560:16:58

Why did you go for camisole?

0:16:580:17:00

I then thought that camisole knickers were probably quite,

0:17:000:17:02

sort of, flowing and baggy, you see,

0:17:020:17:05

which is why I thought it could be that.

0:17:050:17:06

Mmm. Mmm. LAUGHTER

0:17:060:17:08

The ladies don't appear to agree.

0:17:080:17:10

No, no...

0:17:100:17:13

Let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:17:140:17:18

'Impossible.'

0:17:180:17:19

I'm afraid, Gerard,

0:17:190:17:21

it is C, camisole.

0:17:210:17:22

That is a loose-fitting undergarment,

0:17:220:17:25

-but for the upper body.

-Oh!

-You were so close.

0:17:250:17:27

Just the wrong half.

0:17:270:17:30

Unfortunately, that means we have to say goodbye for now,

0:17:300:17:32

but we will see you again tomorrow.

0:17:320:17:35

On to question four.

0:17:350:17:36

Was it...

0:17:420:17:44

All 14 of you still in play

0:17:500:17:52

have put C, John Cleese.

0:17:520:17:54

Let's hope it's the right answer.

0:17:540:17:56

It is John Cleese, a point to all of you.

0:17:580:18:00

The impossible answer was Spike Milligan,

0:18:000:18:02

he wasn't a member of Monty Python.

0:18:020:18:05

This is the fifth and final question.

0:18:050:18:07

Is it...

0:18:120:18:13

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:18:200:18:21

It's MoMa.

0:18:240:18:26

So, those seven of you who put that get a point.

0:18:260:18:30

Let's have a look at what the impossible answer was.

0:18:300:18:33

LACMA.

0:18:350:18:36

LACMA Stands for Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

0:18:360:18:40

And is obviously in Los Angeles.

0:18:400:18:42

That means after five questions, five of you

0:18:420:18:45

got full marks, five points.

0:18:450:18:47

But the quickest to lock in their answers...

0:18:470:18:50

..was Penny.

0:18:510:18:53

APPLAUSE

0:18:530:18:55

Congratulations, Penny.

0:18:550:18:56

Once again, you have a chance to grab a place in today's final.

0:18:580:19:01

Last time it didn't work out, Ash stole your place.

0:19:010:19:04

Hopefully, this time, it will work out.

0:19:040:19:06

Penny. We were here yesterday.

0:19:120:19:14

-Yeah!

-OK, you have the chance to add another £500 to today's prize pot

0:19:140:19:18

which already stands at £400, thanks to Gary.

0:19:180:19:22

You can also take a big step towards playing the £10,000 question.

0:19:220:19:27

Of the three remaining topics,

0:19:270:19:30

which are Television, History and Musical Theatre,

0:19:300:19:33

which one takes your fancy?

0:19:330:19:35

It's got to be Television, the other two are...not me.

0:19:350:19:39

OK, here are your nine answers.

0:19:390:19:41

Olivia Colman, Jenna Coleman,

0:19:430:19:46

Eleanor Tomlinson, Jessica Brown Findlay,

0:19:460:19:49

Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern,

0:19:490:19:52

Tamsin Greig, Nicola Walker,

0:19:520:19:55

and Lily James.

0:19:550:19:58

And the first half of the question is...

0:19:580:20:01

Which actress from Downton Abbey...?

0:20:010:20:05

So, first thing, are you a Downton Abbey fan?

0:20:060:20:09

I do watch it...

0:20:090:20:11

OK. Five of those answers, as you know,

0:20:110:20:14

are impossible, cos they're not in Downton Abbey.

0:20:140:20:17

You need to find those impossible answers and get rid of them.

0:20:170:20:21

Each impossible answer you eliminate will add £100 to today's prize pot.

0:20:210:20:26

Who shall we start with?

0:20:270:20:28

Lily James, sounds more like a pop star than TV actress.

0:20:300:20:34

I don't know.

0:20:340:20:35

Is she an impossible answer?

0:20:350:20:37

Afraid not.

0:20:410:20:42

-Good start(!)

-She is in Downton Abbey.

0:20:420:20:45

Who next?

0:20:460:20:48

I'll go...Jessica Brown Findlay.

0:20:480:20:51

Is Jessica Brown Findlay an impossible answer?

0:20:510:20:53

Oh, we're doing really well(!)

0:20:570:20:58

It isn't, I'm sorry, Penny.

0:20:580:21:01

Third answer, please.

0:21:010:21:03

Jenna Coleman.

0:21:040:21:07

OK, Jenna Coleman. Is Jenna Coleman an impossible answer?

0:21:070:21:10

-Yes!

-Wahey!

0:21:140:21:16

-Finally!

-Put £100 into the prize pot.

0:21:160:21:18

Fourth answer, please, Penny.

0:21:180:21:20

I'll go for the bottom of that column, then,

0:21:200:21:22

and we'll take out Nicola Walker.

0:21:220:21:23

Is Nicola Walker an actress from Downton Abbey,

0:21:230:21:27

or is she an impossible answer?

0:21:270:21:28

She is an impossible answer.

0:21:310:21:35

She was in Last Tango In Halifax.

0:21:350:21:37

Let's see if we can eliminate one more impossible answer.

0:21:370:21:41

We'll go for Olivia Colman.

0:21:410:21:43

Olivia Colman...

0:21:440:21:46

And she is in Peep Show and Broadchurch,

0:21:500:21:54

but not, crucially, in Downton Abbey.

0:21:540:21:56

Means you've added £300 to today's prize pot,

0:21:560:21:59

which now stands at £700.

0:21:590:22:01

We're now going to find out

0:22:010:22:03

if you're going to be playing for that money,

0:22:030:22:04

and for a shot at the £10,000 question in today's final.

0:22:040:22:08

When I reveal the second half of the question,

0:22:080:22:11

you need to tell me the right answer.

0:22:110:22:14

If you find it, you're in the final. If you give a wrong answer,

0:22:140:22:17

the next best player, who was Tracy...

0:22:170:22:20

-SEVERAL:

-Oooh...

0:22:200:22:22

..will get the chance to steal your place in the final.

0:22:220:22:25

There are two impossible answers still remaining.

0:22:250:22:30

If you give either of those,

0:22:300:22:31

you will be eliminated from today's show.

0:22:310:22:33

The full question is...

0:22:360:22:38

Which actress from Downton Abbey

0:22:380:22:41

played Natasha Rostova in the 2016 TV drama

0:22:410:22:46

War And Peace?

0:22:460:22:48

I don't know for sure.

0:22:480:22:50

The only name I really recognised was Elizabeth McGovern,

0:22:500:22:54

so that's who I'm going for.

0:22:540:22:56

Did Elizabeth McGovern play Natasha Rostova

0:22:560:23:00

in the 2016 TV drama War And Peace?

0:23:000:23:03

Oh, Penny.

0:23:060:23:07

-Again.

-She didn't.

0:23:070:23:09

Not an impossible answer, though.

0:23:090:23:12

She was in Downton Abbey.

0:23:120:23:14

That means we're in the same situation again.

0:23:140:23:17

Tracy is going to get a chance to steal.

0:23:170:23:21

-OK.

-Tracy, if you get this right...

0:23:210:23:24

Yes.

0:23:240:23:25

..you take Penny's place in the final.

0:23:250:23:27

Otherwise...if you get it wrong...

0:23:280:23:31

..then Penny will take her place in the final.

0:23:320:23:35

So, I'm going to have to play safe

0:23:350:23:36

and go for the one...one of the names that I know is in it,

0:23:360:23:39

because I've never seen either,

0:23:390:23:40

so I'm going to go for Lily James.

0:23:400:23:42

Did Lily James play Natasha Rostova in the 2016 TV drama War And Peace?

0:23:420:23:48

She did!

0:23:510:23:53

She did! Sorry, Penny.

0:23:530:23:56

Once again, you've had your place stolen.

0:23:560:23:58

Tracy, congratulations.

0:23:580:24:00

-Sorry!

-You have stolen Penny's place in the final.

0:24:000:24:03

The other impossibles were Eleanor Tomlinson,

0:24:030:24:06

she's in Poldark,

0:24:060:24:07

and Tamsin Greig, who is in Black Books and Episodes,

0:24:070:24:10

amongst other things.

0:24:100:24:13

So, unlucky, again, Penny.

0:24:130:24:14

You're back in the pack for the next round.

0:24:140:24:16

But, Tracy, please come and join Gary in the final.

0:24:160:24:18

So, just one place left in today's final alongside Gary and Tracy.

0:24:230:24:29

Let's see who it's going to be.

0:24:290:24:30

Here are your five multiple-choice questions, starting with...

0:24:300:24:34

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:24:480:24:50

It's Tony Gallagher.

0:24:520:24:54

So, five of you get a point.

0:24:540:24:56

Deb, what do you reckon?

0:24:570:24:59

Guessed it was either Brendan or Tony.

0:24:590:25:01

I didn't think it could be Noel Gallagher

0:25:010:25:04

cos he's one of the ones from the band.

0:25:040:25:07

So you think Noel Gallagher is one of those ones from the band.

0:25:070:25:10

-Yeah.

-Let's see what the impossible answer was.

0:25:100:25:13

It is C, Noel Gallagher.

0:25:160:25:17

You all avoided it.

0:25:170:25:18

Would you like to elaborate on which band, Deb?

0:25:180:25:21

Is it Oasis?

0:25:210:25:22

It is Oasis!

0:25:220:25:23

So you did know. On to question two.

0:25:230:25:26

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:25:380:25:40

It's The Shining.

0:25:410:25:43

Published in 1977.

0:25:430:25:46

A point to all of you who put The Shining.

0:25:460:25:48

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:25:480:25:51

So you all avoided the impossible answer.

0:25:540:25:56

Phantoms is not a Stephen King book, that's by Dean Koontz.

0:25:560:25:59

On to question three.

0:25:590:26:01

So, a lot of you have gone for New South Wales.

0:26:120:26:15

A few of you have gone for Victoria.

0:26:150:26:17

No-one has gone for Canberra.

0:26:170:26:19

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:26:190:26:20

Was Victoria.

0:26:230:26:24

Four of you getting a point there,

0:26:240:26:28

meaning that the rest of you are hoping

0:26:280:26:30

that New South Wales is not an impossible answer.

0:26:300:26:33

It's Canberra.

0:26:360:26:38

Canberra, of course, is a city not a state.

0:26:380:26:41

You all avoided

0:26:410:26:42

the impossible answer,

0:26:420:26:44

you all carry on to question number four.

0:26:440:26:47

No-one thinks it's paratha.

0:26:590:27:02

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:27:020:27:03

B, tahini.

0:27:060:27:07

Well done if you put tahini.

0:27:070:27:09

You all get a point.

0:27:090:27:11

What about you, Richard?

0:27:110:27:12

I'm sick and tired of people passing me the tahini, so...

0:27:120:27:15

I thought I would just go for the harissa.

0:27:150:27:17

I prefer that on me chips.

0:27:170:27:20

Wild guess, wild guess for me.

0:27:200:27:22

Let's see if you managed

0:27:220:27:24

to avoid the impossible answer.

0:27:240:27:26

You did. You all avoided it.

0:27:280:27:29

Paratha is not a condiment,

0:27:290:27:32

it's a type of flatbread in Indian cuisine.

0:27:320:27:36

Harissa, Richard, as you well know,

0:27:360:27:38

is a very spicy paste made from chilli peppers.

0:27:380:27:41

Anne and Andrew, you both got that right - tahini -

0:27:410:27:44

meaning you are both on four,

0:27:440:27:47

so this could well come down to who answers the quickest.

0:27:470:27:51

Question five.

0:27:510:27:52

So we've got a full spread of answers here.

0:28:070:28:09

Let's reveal the impossible answer first.

0:28:090:28:11

The impossible is Gustav Holst, I'm afraid.

0:28:140:28:17

He's British, he was born in Cheltenham,

0:28:170:28:20

although he does have Swedish ancestry.

0:28:200:28:23

That means we have to say goodbye to a few of you.

0:28:230:28:26

Megan, Guy, Sarah, unlucky.

0:28:260:28:29

We'll see you again tomorrow.

0:28:290:28:30

Now let's reveal the right answer.

0:28:320:28:34

It's Edvard Grieg.

0:28:370:28:39

So all of you get a point.

0:28:390:28:42

But crucially, both Anne and Andrew got that correct,

0:28:420:28:46

taking them both to five points.

0:28:460:28:49

But I can reveal that the fastest...

0:28:490:28:51

..was Andrew.

0:28:540:28:55

Congratulations, Andrew,

0:28:570:28:58

you have the chance to grab the last place in today's final,

0:28:580:29:01

alongside Gary and Tracy.

0:29:010:29:02

-Andrew.

-Hello.

0:29:080:29:09

Second time down here.

0:29:090:29:11

-Yeah.

-You successfully got through this stage, got to the final,

0:29:110:29:14

but then didn't get to play for the £10,000 question.

0:29:140:29:17

-How are you feeling today?

-Hopeful.

0:29:170:29:21

-Hopeful?

-Hopeful.

-Hopeful of getting that cruise.

0:29:210:29:24

Yes! Absolutely.

0:29:240:29:26

OK, so you've got a chance to add another £500 to today's prize pot

0:29:260:29:31

which already stands at £700,

0:29:310:29:33

and also, you will be a step closer

0:29:330:29:36

towards playing the £10,000 question.

0:29:360:29:39

Of the remaining topics...

0:29:390:29:41

Now, last time, you picked Musical Theatre.

0:29:410:29:43

You're a musical theatre fan.

0:29:430:29:46

I assume you might go for it again.

0:29:460:29:49

I'll push my luck, but I'll go for Musical Theatre again.

0:29:490:29:52

You will go for Musical Theatre again.

0:29:520:29:53

OK. Your nine answers are...

0:29:530:29:56

The Surrey With The Fringe On Top,

0:29:570:30:00

Getting To Know You,

0:30:000:30:02

Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,

0:30:020:30:03

Kansas City,

0:30:030:30:05

Happy Talk,

0:30:050:30:07

If I Loved You,

0:30:070:30:08

Spread A Little Happiness,

0:30:080:30:11

People Will Say We're In Love,

0:30:110:30:13

and My Favourite Things.

0:30:130:30:15

And the first half of the question is...

0:30:150:30:19

Which song from the musical Oklahoma!...?

0:30:190:30:22

Now, five of those answers are impossible,

0:30:220:30:25

so not from Oklahoma!

0:30:250:30:27

You need to find those impossible answers.

0:30:270:30:29

Each impossible answer you eliminate will add £100 to today's prize pot.

0:30:290:30:34

So, where are we going to start?

0:30:350:30:37

-Happy Talk.

-Do you know where Happy Talk is from?

0:30:400:30:43

South Pacific.

0:30:430:30:45

Let's see if Happy Talk is an impossible answer.

0:30:460:30:49

It is from South Pacific.

0:30:530:30:55

Next answer, please, Andrew.

0:30:550:30:57

My Favourite Things.

0:30:580:31:00

What's My Favourite Things from, if not Oklahoma?

0:31:000:31:03

Sound Of Music, I hope.

0:31:030:31:05

Is My Favourite Things an impossible answer?

0:31:050:31:07

It is.

0:31:100:31:12

And as you say, it's from The Sound Of Music.

0:31:120:31:15

Third answer, please.

0:31:150:31:17

Getting To Know You.

0:31:170:31:19

What's Getting To Know You from?

0:31:190:31:22

The King And I.

0:31:220:31:23

-Confident?

-Yes.

0:31:250:31:27

Yes. Is Getting To Know You an impossible answer?

0:31:270:31:30

It is from The King And I.

0:31:320:31:34

Two more impossibles to eliminate, where are we going to go?

0:31:340:31:38

Spread A Little Happiness.

0:31:380:31:40

Do you know what Spread A Little Happiness

0:31:400:31:42

is from, then?

0:31:420:31:43

Brimstone And Treacle.

0:31:430:31:44

Let's see.

0:31:450:31:47

Is Spread A Little Happiness an impossible answer?

0:31:470:31:51

It was originally in Mr Cinders,

0:31:550:31:57

but Sting did sing it in Brimstone And Treacle.

0:31:570:32:00

One more impossible answer to try and find.

0:32:010:32:05

If I Loved You.

0:32:050:32:06

If I Loved You.

0:32:070:32:09

Perfect game from you, Andrew. Five for five.

0:32:150:32:17

£500 added to the prize pot, which now stands at £1,200.

0:32:170:32:22

Now we need to find out if you are going to be playing for that money

0:32:220:32:25

and a shot at the £10,000 question in today's final.

0:32:250:32:27

There are no impossibles left, you eliminated all of them.

0:32:270:32:31

The full question is...

0:32:310:32:33

Which song from the musical Oklahoma!...

0:32:330:32:36

..contains the line, "the corn is as high as an elephant's eye"?

0:32:380:32:42

That song would be

0:32:430:32:45

Oh, What A Beautiful Morning.

0:32:450:32:46

Is Oh, What A Beautiful Morning...

0:32:480:32:50

..the right answer?

0:32:510:32:54

If so, you take your place in the final.

0:32:540:32:56

Congratulations, Andrew.

0:32:590:33:01

Please take your place alongside Tracy and Gary.

0:33:010:33:04

For the rest of you, I'm afraid that a victory today proved impossible,

0:33:080:33:11

but we will see you all again tomorrow.

0:33:110:33:14

But for Gary, Tracy and Andrew, it's time for the final.

0:33:140:33:17

So, there is £1,200 in today's prize pot.

0:33:230:33:27

Only one of you can win that money

0:33:270:33:29

and get the chance to face the £10,000 question.

0:33:290:33:33

Tracy, you stole magnificently.

0:33:330:33:36

Do you feel a little bit guilty?

0:33:360:33:38

-Just a little bit.

-Just a little bit.

0:33:380:33:40

-But I'll live with it.

-Of course you will!

0:33:400:33:42

-What do you do, Tracy?

-I'm a housewife and mum.

0:33:420:33:46

-How many children?

-Four.

0:33:460:33:47

I imagine they're quite excited about Mum may be winning some money,

0:33:470:33:50

-aren't they?

-I think they're probably spending it.

0:33:500:33:52

And what would they spend it on?

0:33:520:33:53

Just like Helen, my son's a roller-coaster fan, so...

0:33:530:33:56

-Oh, OK.

-Any trips and things like that.

0:33:560:33:59

Andrew, and Gary, of course,

0:33:590:34:00

the two of you have faced off at this stage before.

0:34:000:34:04

You both got destroyed by Diane.

0:34:040:34:06

That is true, that is true.

0:34:060:34:07

Luckily for you, Diane's no longer here.

0:34:070:34:09

OK. You're each going to start with ten lives.

0:34:110:34:15

Questions are on the buzzer.

0:34:150:34:17

Buzz and get one right, you knock a life off both of your opponents.

0:34:170:34:20

Buzz and get one wrong, you lose one of your own lives.

0:34:200:34:24

However, some of the questions are impossible.

0:34:240:34:27

For example, in which year of the 1970s

0:34:270:34:30

was the Beatles album Abbey Road released?

0:34:300:34:33

It was actually released in 1969, not in the '70s at all,

0:34:330:34:36

so that is an example of an impossible question.

0:34:360:34:40

If you think you've spotted one of those,

0:34:400:34:43

all you have to do is buzz in and say impossible.

0:34:430:34:46

That will be double trouble for your opponents,

0:34:460:34:48

because they will both lose two lives.

0:34:480:34:50

-Ready? ALL:

-Ready.

0:34:500:34:53

Good luck to you all.

0:34:530:34:55

Who was elected leader of the Labour Party in September...

0:34:560:35:00

-Andrew?

-Jeremy Corbyn.

0:35:000:35:02

You didn't wait for the date, September 2015.

0:35:020:35:04

It is Jeremy Corbyn.

0:35:040:35:06

Which Jamaican singer had a 2007 UK number one hit with Umbrella?

0:35:080:35:13

-Tracy.

-Impossible.

0:35:140:35:16

It is impossible.

0:35:160:35:17

It was Rihanna, who's from Barbados.

0:35:170:35:20

Two lives off of Gary and Andrew.

0:35:210:35:24

Which card game has versions called Five Card Stud...?

0:35:240:35:28

-Andrew?

-Poker.

0:35:280:35:30

It is poker. Five Card Stud and Texas Hold 'em.

0:35:300:35:33

Who played the character Sybil in the classic sitcom Fawlty Towers?

0:35:350:35:40

-Tracy?

-Prunella Scales.

0:35:400:35:42

It was Prunella Scales.

0:35:420:35:43

In the equation E equals MC squared,

0:35:460:35:49

which physical constants does the C represent?

0:35:490:35:52

-Andrew?

-Speed of light.

0:35:520:35:54

It is the speed of light.

0:35:540:35:56

An image of which a scientist appears on the polymer £5 note

0:35:580:36:02

introduced in September 2016?

0:36:020:36:05

Tracy?

0:36:050:36:06

Nobel?

0:36:060:36:08

It's impossible, because it's Winston Churchill,

0:36:080:36:10

not a scientist.

0:36:100:36:11

I'm afraid you lose two lives, Tracy.

0:36:110:36:14

Which author wrote the 50 Shades Of Grey trilogy?

0:36:160:36:19

-Gary?

-EL James?

0:36:190:36:20

It was EL James. Well done, Gary.

0:36:200:36:22

John Boyega plays Finn in which 2015...?

0:36:250:36:29

-Andrew?

-The Force Awakens.

0:36:290:36:31

Yes, I can accept that, Star Wars Episode Seven - The Force Awakens.

0:36:310:36:35

Who wrote the poem Oh, I Wish I'd Looked After Me Teeth?

0:36:370:36:41

-Tracy.

-Pam Ayres.

0:36:410:36:43

It was Pam Ayres.

0:36:430:36:44

Which album by Adele opens with the song Hello?

0:36:460:36:49

-Gary.

-Impossible.

0:36:510:36:53

It's not impossible, Gary.

0:36:530:36:55

-Took a guess.

-It's 25.

0:36:550:36:56

-Took a guess.

-And you know that that means you lose two lives,

0:36:560:37:00

and you're out.

0:37:000:37:01

Thank you.

0:37:010:37:03

Sorry, Gary, we'll see you again tomorrow.

0:37:030:37:05

OK, next question.

0:37:070:37:09

In which decade of the 20th century was construction

0:37:090:37:12

of the M25 motorway completed?

0:37:120:37:15

Tracy? '90s.

0:37:160:37:18

It was the '80s. It was completed in 1986.

0:37:190:37:23

Down to two lives, Tracy.

0:37:230:37:24

In which year did Ann Widdecombe win Strictly Come Dancing?

0:37:250:37:30

-Tracy?

-Impossible.

0:37:300:37:31

It is impossible, she didn't win it. She was in 2010, and she came sixth.

0:37:310:37:36

Andrew loses two lives.

0:37:360:37:39

Which London football team plays its home matches at the Etihad Stadium?

0:37:390:37:45

-Tracy?

-Impossible.

0:37:450:37:46

It is impossible, it's Manchester City,

0:37:460:37:49

not a London team,

0:37:490:37:51

taking two lives of Andrew.

0:37:510:37:53

A cob and a pen are the male and female...

0:37:530:37:55

-Andrew?

-Swans.

0:37:550:37:57

..male and female respectively of which bird?

0:37:570:37:59

It is the swan.

0:37:590:38:02

Which means...both of you languishing on just one life.

0:38:020:38:08

Which role does Helen Mirren play

0:38:080:38:11

in the 1998 film Elizabeth?

0:38:110:38:15

Andrew?

0:38:150:38:17

The Queen.

0:38:170:38:18

I'm afraid...it's impossible, Andrew, she's not in it.

0:38:190:38:23

Cate Blanchett plays Queen Elizabeth I.

0:38:230:38:26

You lose your life. I'm afraid that's it.

0:38:260:38:29

And it means that, Tracy,

0:38:290:38:31

congratulations, you are the winner.

0:38:310:38:33

Thank you.

0:38:330:38:35

So, commiserations, once again, to Gary and Andrew,

0:38:390:38:43

who've made it this far but no further.

0:38:430:38:45

We'll see you both tomorrow.

0:38:450:38:47

Very well done to Tracy.

0:38:470:38:48

It's now time to face the £10,000 question.

0:38:480:38:51

Tracy, you are today's winner with £1,200.

0:38:590:39:03

That's great, but you could be leaving with a whole lot more

0:39:030:39:06

if you can answer the £10,000 question.

0:39:060:39:10

That was a tense, tense final.

0:39:100:39:13

I wasn't expecting to be here,

0:39:130:39:15

so...just trying to make the most of it.

0:39:150:39:16

Yeah, got through on a steal, as well.

0:39:160:39:19

OK, here's how it works. I'm going to show you nine answers

0:39:190:39:23

and then ask a question.

0:39:230:39:25

Three of the nine answers are correct.

0:39:250:39:27

If you can find them all within ten seconds, you win that £10,000.

0:39:270:39:32

-OK.

-That's the good news.

0:39:320:39:35

The less good news is that three of those answers are wrong.

0:39:350:39:38

If you pick any of those, you won't win the £10,000.

0:39:380:39:43

-OK.

-The bad news is three of the nine answers are impossible.

0:39:430:39:48

If you give me any of those answers, you will lose the £1,200 as well.

0:39:480:39:54

OK, here it is. Today's £10,000 question.

0:39:540:39:59

Let's hope it's a good one for you.

0:39:590:40:00

It's science.

0:40:020:40:03

-OK.

-Here are your nine answers.

0:40:030:40:06

And you're looking for

0:40:190:40:21

bones of the human body that are found in the ear.

0:40:210:40:26

And your time starts now.

0:40:260:40:30

Stapes, malleus...

0:40:300:40:32

..and...hyoid.

0:40:330:40:36

So...

0:40:440:40:45

Stapes, malleus and hyoid.

0:40:460:40:50

-How do you feel?

-Fingers crossed.

0:40:530:40:55

All right, let's go through.

0:40:550:40:57

So, first, you said stapes.

0:40:580:41:00

Is stapes a bone in the human ear?

0:41:020:41:06

It is.

0:41:110:41:13

Congratulations.

0:41:130:41:15

One down. Stapes is the stirrup.

0:41:150:41:18

You then said malleus.

0:41:190:41:21

Is malleus a right answer?

0:41:230:41:26

Two down.

0:41:340:41:35

-One to go.

-All right.

0:41:370:41:38

If hyoid...

0:41:420:41:43

..is a bone in the human ear...

0:41:440:41:47

..then you will have won £10,000,

0:41:490:41:53

-and they will come cascading out of that exclamation mark.

-Mm-hm.

0:41:530:41:56

Is hyoid...

0:42:000:42:01

..a right answer?

0:42:020:42:04

-AUDIENCE:

-Oh...

0:42:090:42:10

So close, Tracy.

0:42:120:42:14

Nevertheless, you did manage to hang on to the £1,200,

0:42:140:42:18

and hopefully,

0:42:180:42:19

you'll get another shot at the £10,000 question

0:42:190:42:21

-later in the series.

-OK.

0:42:210:42:23

The right answer that you were looking for...

0:42:250:42:27

..was incus.

0:42:280:42:30

The anvil.

0:42:300:42:32

The hyoid, unfortunately, is in the human body,

0:42:320:42:34

but it's in the neck.

0:42:340:42:35

Pretty close to the ear, but not close enough.

0:42:350:42:38

The impossible answers were Parsifal,

0:42:380:42:41

which is an opera by Wagner,

0:42:410:42:43

liger, a hybrid of the lion and tiger,

0:42:430:42:46

and Pollux, which is a star in the constellation Gemini.

0:42:460:42:50

Tracy, you've won £1,200, and we'll see you tomorrow.

0:42:500:42:54

We've had three very near misses.

0:42:540:42:56

Who will be our first £10,000 winner?

0:42:560:42:59

This has been Impossible, the quiz where anything is possible.

0:42:590:43:02

See you next time. Goodbye!

0:43:020:43:03

Game show in which 30 players compete across the series, scoring points by answering questions correctly. However, they must avoid the impossible answers, otherwise they will be eliminated from the show until the next day. In each episode there are three rounds, and the three highest scorers from each round play against each other in the final. The winner of this battle faces a £10,000 question.
