Hello, I'm Rick Edwards, and this is !mpossible - day four.

0:00:020:00:04

Welcome to !mpossible, the quiz with the third dimension.

0:00:140:00:18

Most quiz shows have just right answers and wrong answers,

0:00:180:00:20

but here we also have impossible answers.

0:00:200:00:24

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:240:00:25

Is it...

0:00:290:00:30

The right answer is Jerry Maguire,

0:00:330:00:35

the wrong answer is Risky Business,

0:00:350:00:37

but Wall Street couldn't possibly be right

0:00:370:00:39

because Tom Cruise isn't in it.

0:00:390:00:41

So, that is the impossible answer.

0:00:410:00:44

Hoping to get lots of right answers whilst dodging

0:00:440:00:46

those pesky impossible answers are 30 players.

0:00:460:00:49

-Hello, players. ALL:

-Hiya, Ricky.

0:00:490:00:52

Nice to see you all, as ever.

0:00:520:00:53

They'll be with us throughout the series,

0:00:530:00:55

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

0:00:550:01:00

-ALL:

-Woo!

0:01:000:01:01

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

0:01:010:01:04

-ALL:

-WOO!

0:01:040:01:06

Loud woo-ing because they know that this exclamation mark

0:01:060:01:10

is filled with 10,000 shimmering pound coins,

0:01:100:01:13

and at the end of every show our winner faces one final question.

0:01:130:01:18

Here it is, today's £10,000 question.

0:01:180:01:22

Get this right and all of that cash will come flooding out.

0:01:220:01:26

Yesterday, Tracy,

0:01:260:01:28

you were just one answer away from seeing that cash flood out.

0:01:280:01:32

You still took home £1,200.

0:01:320:01:35

-How are you feeling today?

-Quite excited.

0:01:350:01:37

-Yeah?

-Like to have another go, now.

-Well, let's see.

0:01:370:01:40

That's exactly what you're here for.

0:01:400:01:42

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

0:01:420:01:44

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

0:01:440:01:47

You'll face five multiple-choice questions, each with three answers.

0:01:470:01:52

The right answer scores you a point,

0:01:520:01:54

the wrong answers scores you nothing.

0:01:540:01:57

But if you choose the impossible answer...

0:01:570:01:59

'Impossible.'

0:01:590:02:00

Oh, dear!

0:02:000:02:01

That immediately knocks you out of today's show

0:02:010:02:05

and you have to try again tomorrow.

0:02:050:02:08

After five questions the highest scorer gets the first chance

0:02:080:02:11

to bag a place in today's final.

0:02:110:02:14

Do answer as quickly as you can because if there's a tie,

0:02:140:02:16

whoever's locked in their answers the fastest will qualify.

0:02:160:02:20

Good luck, everyone. Here is your first question...

0:02:200:02:23

Is it...

0:02:290:02:30

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:02:390:02:41

It's A - 2004.

0:02:430:02:45

So, 11 of you get a point.

0:02:450:02:48

That does, of course, mean that some of you

0:02:480:02:51

have given the impossible answer.

0:02:510:02:53

Megan, do you remember

0:02:530:02:56

Kelly Holmes winning her gold medals?

0:02:560:02:58

Erm... Wait.... So, how many years ago was that?

0:02:580:03:01

12? I would have been 15 so... Yeah. Well...

0:03:010:03:05

-Actually, no, I'm lying, I don't.

-RICKY LAUGHS

0:03:050:03:07

I just know that 2006 is not an Olympic year,

0:03:070:03:10

cos it's multiples of four.

0:03:100:03:12

So, I kind of either went 2004 or 2008.

0:03:120:03:14

So, I just sort of picked one and thought, for the best,

0:03:140:03:17

maybe the one before London 2012.

0:03:170:03:19

-So...

-Don't know if you want to have a quick glance to your left, Megan,

0:03:190:03:22

-but Guy...

-Don't.

-..is not happy.

0:03:220:03:24

LAUGHTER

0:03:240:03:26

I basically know where this is going, so...

0:03:260:03:29

I'll go to the greenroom now if that's all right.

0:03:290:03:31

-OK. Well, you'll stay there, Guy.

-Thank you.

-Let's just see

0:03:310:03:35

what the impossible answer is...

0:03:350:03:38

'Impossible.'

0:03:380:03:39

Yeah, it is 2006, as Megan said.

0:03:390:03:42

So, Guy and Anne, I'm afraid that is it for today, at this early stage,

0:03:420:03:47

but we will see you again tomorrow.

0:03:470:03:49

Question two, then...

0:03:500:03:51

Was it...

0:03:590:04:00

So, everyone is locked in except for Dan.

0:04:110:04:14

You were too slow, Dan.

0:04:150:04:17

But I thought I nailed it. And I play a lot of Tekken

0:04:170:04:19

and Call Of Duty and all these video games, so...

0:04:190:04:21

You need to play more Tekken.

0:04:210:04:23

I never thought I'd say that, Dan, but I think you do.

0:04:230:04:25

LAUGHTER We'll see you tomorrow.

0:04:250:04:27

'Impossible.'

0:04:270:04:29

Now, we have got a full spread of answers from the rest of you.

0:04:300:04:33

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:04:330:04:35

It's Central and Victoria,

0:04:370:04:39

so lots of you should be happy, you all get a point. This means

0:04:390:04:43

either a lot of you or one of you is going to be eliminated

0:04:430:04:47

because you've given an impossible answer.

0:04:470:04:49

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:490:04:54

'Impossible.'

0:04:540:04:55

It's Western and Paddington.

0:04:550:04:57

There aren't tube lines called Western and Paddington,

0:04:570:05:00

I'm afraid, Tracy,

0:05:000:05:01

but we will see you again tomorrow.

0:05:010:05:03

Question three...

0:05:030:05:04

Is it...

0:05:080:05:09

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

0:05:170:05:20

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:05:200:05:22

It's A, Massachusetts.

0:05:220:05:25

So, a point to all those people that put Massachusetts,

0:05:250:05:27

-that's correct. Carole, you thought Maryland.

-I did.

0:05:270:05:31

But I now think it's Massachusetts, because it's got green across.

0:05:310:05:35

Yeah, yeah. LAUGHTER

0:05:350:05:36

It's a giveaway, isn't it, Carole?

0:05:360:05:38

It's a bit of a giveaway, that one,

0:05:380:05:39

but at least it wasn't the middle one.

0:05:390:05:42

All right, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:05:420:05:45

'Impossible.'

0:05:450:05:47

Impossible answer is Miami, I'm afraid, Linda.

0:05:470:05:50

It's not a state, it's a city.

0:05:500:05:52

-But we will see you tomorrow.

-OK, thank you.

-Thanks, Linda.

0:05:520:05:55

For all you remaining, question number four...

0:05:550:05:59

Is it....

0:06:030:06:05

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:06:140:06:16

It's C, Nicholas Hoult.

0:06:190:06:22

Congratulations,

0:06:220:06:23

that's a point added to your tally.

0:06:230:06:25

Craig, you went for Tom Hardy.

0:06:250:06:27

No rhyme, no reason.

0:06:280:06:30

It was the middle and I just went for it.

0:06:300:06:32

Mmm. Thought you'd hedge your bets with the middle?

0:06:320:06:34

-Yeah.

-Not seen Mad Max: Fury Road?

0:06:340:06:37

No. I'm afraid not,

0:06:370:06:39

otherwise I would have chosen C.

0:06:390:06:42

You would, you would.

0:06:420:06:44

Carol Marie, you put Tom Hiddleston.

0:06:440:06:47

Don't actually know who any of them are.

0:06:480:06:50

I was hoping Mel Gibson would come up, but I don't even think

0:06:500:06:53

-he's in that one either, so...

-No, not in the remake, no.

0:06:530:06:56

-Oops.

-Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:06:560:07:00

'Impossible.'

0:07:000:07:03

Impossible answer is A, Tom Hiddlestone.

0:07:030:07:06

Tom Hiddleston is not in that film.

0:07:060:07:09

You are all eliminated for today.

0:07:090:07:11

We'll see you tomorrow.

0:07:110:07:13

So, as we move onto our final question, we have a leader -

0:07:130:07:18

one person on four points,

0:07:180:07:20

and that is Alan.

0:07:200:07:22

-JANE:

-(Well done).

-PLAYERS:

-Ooh.

0:07:220:07:24

If you get this next question right, Alan,

0:07:240:07:26

you are guaranteed to be coming down here and playing a grid with me.

0:07:260:07:30

Question number five...

0:07:300:07:32

Is it...

0:07:390:07:41

We've got the full range of answers.

0:07:510:07:53

Let's first reveal the impossible answer.

0:07:530:07:58

'Impossible.'

0:07:580:08:00

Ludwig van Beethoven...

0:08:000:08:03

not an Austrian composer,

0:08:030:08:06

he was German. So, all of you who put that, I'm afraid

0:08:060:08:09

we're going to have to say goodbye to you for today,

0:08:090:08:11

and we'll see you tomorrow.

0:08:110:08:13

So, Alan, you've avoided the impossible answer.

0:08:130:08:16

-Yup.

-If you've found the right answer,

0:08:160:08:20

you're guaranteed to be the winner.

0:08:200:08:21

OK, let's reveal the right answer.

0:08:210:08:24

Yes.

0:08:260:08:27

It is Schubert. So, well done, Alan, you get a point,

0:08:270:08:29

taking you to five points, and it means that you win that round...

0:08:290:08:33

APPLAUSE ..and you have the chance

0:08:330:08:35

to grab a place in today's final.

0:08:350:08:37

-Alan.

-Rick.

0:08:410:08:43

Excellent round. Five from five.

0:08:430:08:45

-That was good, full house.

-Always good.

-Yeah.

0:08:450:08:48

What do you do when you're not on quizzes?

0:08:480:08:50

I've got a shop in Weston-super-Mare that sells comics...

0:08:500:08:54

-OK.

-..comic-related rubbish...

-Uh-huh.

-..and a lot of Lego, as well.

0:08:540:08:58

So, if you were to win the £10,000,

0:08:580:09:02

would you splash out on some more comic books?

0:09:020:09:05

That would definitely be part of it.

0:09:050:09:06

But ever since I was a little kid

0:09:060:09:10

I've wanted to go to Disneyland,

0:09:100:09:12

that's always your kid's dream.

0:09:120:09:13

-Yeah.

-And it would be nice to go as an adult and just have fun.

0:09:130:09:18

OK. This is your chance, Alan,

0:09:180:09:20

to put £500 into today's prize pot.

0:09:200:09:24

And, crucially, take a massive step towards playing

0:09:240:09:27

the £10,000 question.

0:09:270:09:29

I'm going to give you four topics to choose from...

0:09:290:09:32

Food and Drink, History,

0:09:340:09:36

Science, and Pop Music.

0:09:360:09:38

-Which do you fancy?

-Well, I do do some DJing,

0:09:400:09:42

so it's got to be Pop Music.

0:09:420:09:44

OK. Pop Music it is.

0:09:440:09:47

This is how it works.

0:09:470:09:48

I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:09:480:09:50

Here we go...

0:09:500:09:53

No Matter What, You Raise Me Up,

0:09:530:09:56

Rule The World, Patience

0:09:560:09:59

I'll Be OK, Back For Good

0:09:590:10:02

Shine, You Said No,

0:10:020:10:05

and Stay Another Day.

0:10:050:10:07

I'm also going to reveal first half of a question...

0:10:090:10:11

Which Take That single...?

0:10:130:10:15

Five of those answers are impossible

0:10:170:10:20

because they aren't Take That singles.

0:10:200:10:22

Your first job is to find those impossibles

0:10:220:10:25

-and banish them into oblivion.

-OK.

0:10:250:10:28

Each impossible answer you manage to eliminate will add £100

0:10:280:10:32

to today's prize pot. Where are we going to start?

0:10:320:10:34

Well, let's start with You Said No.

0:10:340:10:38

You Said No. Let's lock that in.

0:10:380:10:40

Is You Said No an impossible answer?

0:10:400:10:43

It is...

0:10:470:10:49

-..and it's by Busted.

-It is.

0:10:490:10:51

£100 in the prize pot.

0:10:510:10:53

Which one are we going to pick next?

0:10:540:10:55

Stay Another Day.

0:10:550:10:57

Stay Another Day, let's lock that in.

0:10:570:11:01

So, you think Stay Another Day is not a Take That single?

0:11:010:11:04

I think it was a Christmas number one for East 17.

0:11:040:11:08

Is Stay Another Day an impossible answer?

0:11:080:11:10

It is...

0:11:140:11:15

and it was East 17.

0:11:150:11:17

Good knowledge so far, Alan.

0:11:170:11:19

Eh... Next up, No Matter What.

0:11:190:11:22

No Matter What.

0:11:230:11:25

-Let's lock that in.

-Think it's Westlife.

0:11:250:11:28

Is No Matter What an impossible answer?

0:11:280:11:31

It is.

0:11:340:11:36

£300 now in the prize pot.

0:11:360:11:39

-It's actually by Boyzone.

-Ah.

0:11:390:11:41

Two more answers.

0:11:410:11:44

-Where do you want to go next?

-You Raise Me Up.

0:11:440:11:46

Is You Raise Me Up an impossible answer?

0:11:460:11:48

It is.

0:11:510:11:52

By Westlife. Four from four.

0:11:530:11:56

One more impossible to find.

0:11:560:11:57

I'm going to go for I'll Be OK.

0:11:570:11:59

Is I'll Be OK an impossible answer?

0:12:000:12:04

It is! Very well done, Alan.

0:12:060:12:08

-Thank you.

-£500 in the prize pot.

0:12:080:12:12

I'll Be OK, by the way, if you're interested - McFly.

0:12:120:12:14

-Oh, right, I do know them.

-In a moment,

0:12:140:12:16

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

0:12:160:12:19

and I'm now looking for the right answer.

0:12:190:12:21

Find it and a place in the final is yours.

0:12:210:12:24

If you give a wrong answer the next best player will have the chance

0:12:240:12:28

to steal your place in the final.

0:12:280:12:31

I can reveal that the next best player was...

0:12:310:12:35

Helen.

0:12:350:12:37

Let's reveal the full question...

0:12:370:12:40

Which Take That single...

0:12:400:12:43

was their first UK number one

0:12:430:12:45

after reforming in 2006?

0:12:450:12:48

I'm going to go with one which feels about the right age.

0:12:490:12:53

It was from the film Stardust.

0:12:530:12:56

Rule The World.

0:12:560:12:58

So, let's lock Rule The World in.

0:12:580:13:01

This, for a place in the final, Alan.

0:13:010:13:03

Ohh.

0:13:050:13:07

No, it wasn't.

0:13:070:13:09

That is a wrong answer.

0:13:090:13:11

Helen, if you get this right,

0:13:110:13:13

you steal Alan's place, that he's worked very hard for,

0:13:130:13:16

in the final.

0:13:160:13:18

SHE LAUGHS

0:13:180:13:19

If you get it wrong, Alan has a lucky escape.

0:13:190:13:22

-So...

-Right.

0:13:230:13:25

OK.

0:13:250:13:26

I think it's Patience.

0:13:260:13:28

So, we'll lock in Patience.

0:13:280:13:30

-Go on.

-All right.

0:13:300:13:32

Is Patience the right answer?

0:13:330:13:36

It is! APPLAUSE

0:13:400:13:42

Helen, well done. You've nabbed Alan's place in the final.

0:13:420:13:46

Bad luck, Alan. You are back in the pack for the next round.

0:13:460:13:49

-Thanks, Rick.

-Helen, you're going through to today's final!

0:13:490:13:52

APPLAUSE

0:13:520:13:53

Still two places left in today's final, alongside Helen.

0:13:550:13:59

Here is your first question...

0:13:590:14:01

Is it...

0:14:090:14:10

All but one of you thinks it's

0:14:210:14:22

The Late Late Show With James Cordon.

0:14:220:14:25

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:250:14:28

It is The Late Late Show With James Cordon.

0:14:290:14:32

A point to all of you.

0:14:320:14:33

The impossible answer is...

0:14:330:14:35

The Evening Show With Jonathan Ross.

0:14:380:14:39

There's no such show, and he's never hosted a talk show in the US.

0:14:390:14:43

-So you are safe, Vinessa...

-Phew.

0:14:430:14:45

..even though you gave the wrong answer.

0:14:450:14:47

Question number two...

0:14:470:14:49

Is it...?

0:14:550:14:57

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:15:040:15:06

It's Stevie Smith, A.

0:15:080:15:10

Just five of you getting that.

0:15:110:15:13

A point to all of you. Well done.

0:15:130:15:15

That means that some of you

0:15:150:15:18

have given the impossible answer.

0:15:180:15:20

-Deb?

-Yeah?

-Big poetry reader?

-Not at all.

0:15:200:15:25

But I thought it was a toss-up

0:15:250:15:27

between Stevie Smith and LM Montgomery because,

0:15:270:15:32

if my memory serves me right,

0:15:320:15:34

Shirley Crabtree used to be the wrestler Big Daddy.

0:15:340:15:38

Ah...

0:15:380:15:40

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:15:400:15:42

The impossible answer is Shirley Crabtree.

0:15:450:15:48

I'm sorry, Bim.

0:15:480:15:49

It was the wrestler Big Daddy's real name.

0:15:490:15:51

Vinessa, you also put Shirley Crabtree.

0:15:510:15:55

I'm sorry. We're going to see you both tomorrow.

0:15:550:15:57

-Thank you.

-On to question number three.

0:15:570:16:00

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:16:180:16:20

It is A, Regent Street. A point to all of you.

0:16:220:16:25

-Gary?

-Yes?

0:16:250:16:28

You went Oxford Street?

0:16:280:16:29

Yeah, I think it was a toss-up between A and B.

0:16:290:16:31

I'm pretty sure Bow Street's red.

0:16:310:16:34

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:16:340:16:36

It's C, Bow Street, I'm afraid, Deb.

0:16:390:16:42

That is an orange property. So you were close, Gary.

0:16:420:16:46

That means we'll have to say goodbye to you for now,

0:16:460:16:48

but we will see you again tomorrow.

0:16:480:16:50

Let's move on to question number four.

0:16:500:16:52

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:17:080:17:10

It's Marcel Duchamp.

0:17:120:17:14

So five of you get another point

0:17:140:17:16

to add to your tally.

0:17:160:17:18

That does mean a few of you

0:17:180:17:20

have given the impossible answer, though.

0:17:200:17:23

Kerry, you put Hans Gruber.

0:17:230:17:26

I did that because I've heard of Hans Gruber

0:17:260:17:30

and I just chose Hans Gruber.

0:17:300:17:33

I'm going to put everyone out of their misery.

0:17:330:17:35

It's B, Hans Gruber.

0:17:380:17:41

You may well have heard of Hans Gruber, Kerry -

0:17:410:17:43

he is the villain in Die Hard, played by Alan Rickman.

0:17:430:17:47

So I'm afraid that means, Kerry, Ray and Megan,

0:17:470:17:51

we have to say goodbye to you.

0:17:510:17:52

We'll see you tomorrow.

0:17:520:17:55

So, going into the final question, we have a clear leader,

0:17:550:17:59

out on his own - it's Richie, on four points.

0:17:590:18:03

If you get this right, you'll win,

0:18:030:18:05

and have the chance to grab a place in today's final, next to Helen.

0:18:050:18:08

But if you give an impossible answer, your day will be over.

0:18:080:18:13

No pressure.

0:18:130:18:14

All right, question number five.

0:18:140:18:16

Almost all of you think it's John Dory.

0:18:300:18:34

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:18:340:18:36

It's John Dory.

0:18:390:18:40

So a point to all of you that put John Dory, including you, Richie,

0:18:400:18:44

which takes you to five points, which means you win this round.

0:18:440:18:48

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:480:18:50

Just one thing to clear up, though - the impossible answer is...

0:18:510:18:56

Cullen skink.

0:18:580:19:00

You avoided it. Well done, Richard. Cullen skink is a Scottish soup.

0:19:000:19:05

So, congratulations, Richie.

0:19:050:19:06

You have a chance to grab a place in today's final alongside Helen.

0:19:060:19:09

Richie, a perfect round, five out of five.

0:19:130:19:15

-Yes, thank you.

-What do you do when you're not on TV quiz shows?

0:19:150:19:19

Well, I work as a technical author. What does that mean, exactly?

0:19:190:19:22

Are you writing, like, sort of, manuals?

0:19:220:19:25

Basically, if you're having trouble using a bit of software and you go on YouTube

0:19:250:19:28

or you, you know, you look at a help file or a manual or anything,

0:19:280:19:31

then I'm the guy who wrote it.

0:19:310:19:32

-Ah!

-I do like the job

0:19:320:19:34

but, basically, people only read my work

0:19:340:19:36

whenever they're angry or frustrated.

0:19:360:19:38

OK. You now have the chance to add another £500 to today's prize pot,

0:19:380:19:44

which already stands at £500.

0:19:440:19:47

-Right.

-You can also take a huge step towards playing

0:19:470:19:50

the £10,000 question.

0:19:500:19:53

Of the three remaining topics -

0:19:530:19:56

Food and Drink, History and Science -

0:19:560:19:59

which tickles you?

0:19:590:20:00

I think it would have to be Science.

0:20:000:20:03

OK. Here are your nine answers.

0:20:030:20:06

And the first half of the question is...

0:20:230:20:26

Which layer of the Earth's atmosphere...?

0:20:280:20:31

Five of those answers are impossible

0:20:310:20:33

cos they are not layers of the Earth's atmosphere.

0:20:330:20:38

-OK.

-You need to find those impossible answers

0:20:380:20:40

and get rid of them.

0:20:400:20:41

-Where shall we start?

-We'll start with the obvious ones.

0:20:410:20:44

-Hemisphere.

-Oh, there's obvious ones, are there?

0:20:440:20:46

-Well, there's two...

-I like that confidence.

0:20:460:20:48

Well, there's only two obvious ones. The rest I guess!

0:20:480:20:50

And hemisphere because...?

0:20:500:20:52

It's half the globe.

0:20:520:20:54

Is hemisphere an impossible answer?

0:20:540:20:57

Yes, it is.

0:21:010:21:02

-£100 in the prize pot. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:21:040:21:06

What was the other obvious one?

0:21:060:21:08

-Blogosphere.

-Blogosphere. Let's lock in blogosphere.

0:21:080:21:12

And blogosphere is obvious because...?

0:21:150:21:18

Well, it's something to do with blogging,

0:21:180:21:20

sort of, the world of online blogging.

0:21:200:21:22

OK. We think that the blogosphere

0:21:220:21:24

is to do with the world of online blogging.

0:21:240:21:26

Is it an impossible answer?

0:21:260:21:28

It is. Another £100 in the prize pot.

0:21:300:21:33

It's exactly that.

0:21:330:21:34

-Now, we're out of obvious ones.

-We are, yeah.

0:21:340:21:37

And there's only two that I know are actually real ones.

0:21:370:21:40

So...bathysphere...

0:21:400:21:43

I've heard that before in relation to the ocean, or something,

0:21:430:21:46

but...it's as good as any, so I'll go for bathysphere.

0:21:460:21:51

OK. Bathysphere. Let's lock that in.

0:21:510:21:56

Is bathysphere an impossible answer?

0:21:560:21:59

It is. £300 in the prize pot.

0:22:020:22:05

Bathysphere is a bit of diving apparatus.

0:22:050:22:08

Oh, right.

0:22:080:22:09

-I wasn't a million miles away.

-To do with the ocean.

-Yeah. OK.

0:22:090:22:12

So, three from three.

0:22:120:22:13

What's your fourth answer going to be?

0:22:130:22:16

I can't even remember how to pronounce it,

0:22:160:22:18

but the bottom right one...oosphere.

0:22:180:22:20

-Oosphere.

-Yeah.

0:22:200:22:22

I think it might have something to do with eggs or bones or something.

0:22:220:22:25

OK. So we're going to lock in oosphere.

0:22:250:22:29

Is oosphere an impossible answer?

0:22:290:22:32

It is. Four from four.

0:22:360:22:39

£400 put into the prize pot.

0:22:390:22:41

Oosphere is a female reproductive cell of certain fungi and algae.

0:22:410:22:48

Now we need to eliminate the last impossible remaining on the grid.

0:22:480:22:53

Right, I'm clutching at straws here.

0:22:530:22:55

I'll go with rhizosphere.

0:22:550:22:58

Is rhizosphere an impossible answer?

0:22:580:23:01

It is an impossible answer. Five from five.

0:23:030:23:06

£500 into the prize pot, now standing at £1,000.

0:23:060:23:13

The rhizosphere, you'll be surprised to hear,

0:23:130:23:15

it's an area of soil around the roots of plants.

0:23:150:23:19

OK. Live and learn.

0:23:190:23:21

Now we need to see if you're going to be playing for that money

0:23:210:23:24

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

0:23:240:23:28

-OK.

-When I reveal the second half of the question,

0:23:280:23:30

you just need to tell me the right answer.

0:23:300:23:33

-OK.

-If you find it, you're in the final.

0:23:330:23:37

Give me a wrong answer and the next best player,

0:23:370:23:40

who was Alan,

0:23:400:23:42

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

0:23:420:23:46

The full question is...

0:23:460:23:48

Which layer of the Earth's atmosphere...

0:23:480:23:52

..lies closest to the Earth's surface?

0:23:520:23:56

I'm going to guess mesosphere.

0:23:560:23:59

Is mesosphere the right answer?

0:23:590:24:02

I'm afraid it isn't. That's a wrong answer, Richie.

0:24:060:24:10

-Oh, dear.

-And that means that I'm going to throw it over to Alan.

0:24:100:24:15

-Hey!

-Alan, I think you know how this works.

0:24:150:24:19

I will go for thermosphere, purely because it's there.

0:24:190:24:25

OK. If you get this right,

0:24:250:24:28

you steal Richie's place in the final.

0:24:280:24:30

If it's wrong, very lucky escape for Richie.

0:24:300:24:35

So, is the thermosphere the layer of the Earth's atmosphere

0:24:350:24:42

that lies closest to its surface?

0:24:420:24:44

-No.

-No!

0:24:460:24:48

It isn't. That's wrong,

0:24:480:24:51

which means that you've dodged a bullet, Richie.

0:24:510:24:54

-Certainly have.

-Just to go through,

0:24:540:24:56

I guess it would be good to tell you what the answer was.

0:24:560:24:59

-Aye, I wouldn't mind.

-Do you want to have another guess?

0:24:590:25:01

Troposphere?

0:25:010:25:03

Troposphere is absolutely right.

0:25:030:25:07

That was the answer you were looking for.

0:25:070:25:09

That's from the surface up to about 10km.

0:25:090:25:13

Then it's stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere.

0:25:130:25:16

-Got you.

-Richie, you've had a lucky escape.

0:25:160:25:19

-We'll see you in today's final.

-Thank you very much.

0:25:190:25:22

So just one place left in today's final,

0:25:240:25:27

alongside Helen and Richie.

0:25:270:25:29

Let's see who it's going to be. Only eight surviving, now.

0:25:290:25:33

Most of you think it's John Paul I.

0:25:470:25:49

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:25:490:25:51

John Paul I.

0:25:530:25:55

So six of you get a point.

0:25:550:25:58

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:25:580:26:00

It's John Paul III. There hasn't been a Pope John Paul III.

0:26:030:26:06

I'm sorry, Paul.

0:26:060:26:08

That means we will have to see you tomorrow.

0:26:080:26:12

Question number two.

0:26:120:26:14

So everyone except Ash

0:26:270:26:31

thinks it's Harry Kane.

0:26:310:26:33

Ash thinks Dylan Hartley.

0:26:330:26:36

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:26:360:26:39

It's Harry Kane. A point to all of you.

0:26:410:26:44

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:26:440:26:46

Afraid he is the impossible answer,

0:26:490:26:51

cos he's a rugby player.

0:26:510:26:53

Oh...right.

0:26:530:26:55

Sorry, Ash. We'll see you tomorrow.

0:26:550:26:58

Question number three.

0:26:580:27:00

Five of you think Colombia.

0:27:120:27:15

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:27:150:27:17

It's C, Columbia. A point to you five.

0:27:190:27:23

Here we are again, Kurtis.

0:27:230:27:25

Yeah. Yeah, I'm pretty sure Venezuela's South America.

0:27:250:27:29

Although, as the words come out, I'm starting to doubt myself.

0:27:290:27:31

But I don't know why.

0:27:310:27:33

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:27:330:27:35

The impossible answer was Botswana.

0:27:370:27:39

Botswana is an African country. Venezuela is in South America.

0:27:390:27:43

Moving on to question four.

0:27:430:27:46

Five of you have gone

0:28:000:28:02

with Lady Bracknell.

0:28:020:28:03

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:28:030:28:05

It is B, Lady Bracknell.

0:28:070:28:10

A point to all of you.

0:28:100:28:12

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:28:120:28:13

It is Mrs Slocombe cos, of course, she is in Are You Being Served?.

0:28:160:28:21

Miss Prism, who you went for, Richard,

0:28:210:28:22

is the one that forgets the baby in the handbag.

0:28:220:28:25

Question number five.

0:28:250:28:27

We have a full spread of answers.

0:28:440:28:48

Let's reveal the right answer first.

0:28:480:28:51

The right answer is DFID.

0:28:530:28:56

DFID - the Department for International Development.

0:28:560:29:00

Gary, Andrew and Richard all get a point.

0:29:000:29:04

Gerard, Alan and Kurtis,

0:29:040:29:07

one or more of you has given the impossible answer.

0:29:070:29:10

Gerard, you've gone for DEGT.

0:29:100:29:14

Just panicked.

0:29:140:29:16

Seeing the initials and trying to work out there

0:29:160:29:20

for what they stood for in three or four seconds

0:29:200:29:23

was just too much for my elderly brain, you know?

0:29:230:29:26

I'm sorry to tax your brain. It's not that elderly, Gerard.

0:29:260:29:30

-Thank you.

-Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:29:300:29:33

It is DEGT.

0:29:360:29:39

It's an internet abbreviation, I'm afraid, Gerard,

0:29:390:29:42

for "don't even go there".

0:29:420:29:44

-But you did.

-I've learned my lesson.

0:29:440:29:48

Both you and Kurtis went there,

0:29:480:29:51

and I'm afraid that means we have to say goodbye

0:29:510:29:53

and we'll see you both tomorrow.

0:29:530:29:56

Andrew and Gary both got that right,

0:29:560:29:58

meaning that they both have five points.

0:29:580:30:02

But the quickest to lock in their answers...

0:30:020:30:04

..was Gary.

0:30:060:30:07

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:30:070:30:09

Congratulations. You have the chance to grab the last place

0:30:090:30:12

in today's final, alongside Helen and Richie.

0:30:120:30:15

Hello again, Gary. How are you doing?

0:30:160:30:18

-How are you?

-Yeah, not too bad, thank you.

0:30:180:30:21

Third time down here with me.

0:30:210:30:22

-Third time's the charm, hopefully.

-Let's hope so.

0:30:220:30:25

OK, of the remaining topics, which do you want to go for?

0:30:250:30:28

Food and Drink or History?

0:30:280:30:30

I think I'll try History again, please.

0:30:300:30:33

All right. Your nine answers are...

0:30:330:30:37

And the first half of the question is...

0:30:490:30:52

Which Roman emperor...?

0:30:520:30:55

Five of those are impossible.

0:30:550:30:57

They couldn't possibly be the answer to a question starting like that.

0:30:570:31:00

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

0:31:000:31:03

All right, where shall we start?

0:31:030:31:05

Brutus, please.

0:31:050:31:08

Brutus. Let's lock Brutus in.

0:31:080:31:11

You don't think Brutus was a Roman emperor?

0:31:110:31:13

No, I think he is the scoundrel that stabbed Caesar... I think.

0:31:130:31:19

Is Brutus an impossible answer?

0:31:190:31:22

It is. £100 in the pot.

0:31:250:31:28

-He was the scoundrel. You're right.

-Yeah.

0:31:280:31:31

Second answer, please.

0:31:310:31:33

Juvenal, if that's pronounced correctly.

0:31:330:31:36

OK, let's lock it in. Juvenal.

0:31:360:31:38

£200 added to the prize pot.

0:31:410:31:44

-Let's get a third answer.

-Yeah.

0:31:440:31:47

Seneca, please, Rick.

0:31:470:31:50

-Seneca. Let's lock Seneca in.

-Yeah.

-Is Seneca an impossible answer?

0:31:500:31:55

Yes, it is. A dramatist and a statesman.

0:32:000:32:03

Fourth answer, please.

0:32:030:32:05

I think Pompey was a military leader rather than an emperor, I think.

0:32:050:32:10

-So I'll have Pompey, please.

-OK, let's lock in Pompey.

0:32:100:32:14

Is Pompey an impossible answer?

0:32:140:32:17

It is. Four from four. £400 added to the prize pot.

0:32:200:32:25

Pompey is a military leader.

0:32:250:32:27

Good, good, good. I know something.

0:32:270:32:31

Let's see if you know one more thing.

0:32:310:32:33

-Yeah, one more.

-So, which are we going to go for?

0:32:330:32:37

Calpurnia, please, Rick.

0:32:370:32:39

What's Calpurnia saying to you?

0:32:390:32:40

He's saying that, "I think the other four are emperors

0:32:400:32:43

"so, therefore, I am not."

0:32:430:32:46

OK. Let's see if Calpurnia is an impossible answer.

0:32:460:32:54

It is. £500 into the prize pot,

0:32:570:33:02

means the prize pot is at the maximum £1,500.

0:33:020:33:07

Calpurnia, you were hoping he was going to be impossible.

0:33:070:33:11

HE wasn't, because it's a SHE.

0:33:110:33:13

-Ah.

-Caesar's wife.

-Ah, OK.

0:33:130:33:16

Will you be playing for that money

0:33:160:33:17

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

0:33:170:33:23

You need to give me the right answer when I reveal the whole question.

0:33:230:33:27

Remember, the next best player in that round, who was Andrew,

0:33:270:33:31

is ready and waiting to steal your place in the final

0:33:310:33:34

if you give a wrong answer.

0:33:340:33:36

Which Roman emperor...

0:33:360:33:38

..was in power when the conquest of Britain began in 43 AD?

0:33:400:33:46

Do I go for Hadrian, which is the obvious...?

0:33:470:33:50

No, I think I'll go with Tiberius, please.

0:33:500:33:53

For a place in the final,

0:33:530:33:55

was Tiberius in power when the conquest of Britain

0:33:550:33:58

began in 43 AD?

0:33:580:34:00

-Ah!

-He wasn't, Gary. That's the wrong answer.

0:34:030:34:08

Andrew now has a chance to steal your place in the final.

0:34:080:34:15

-Andrew.

-Hello, Rick.

0:34:150:34:18

What's your answer going to be?

0:34:180:34:21

It's between two.

0:34:210:34:23

And I'm going to try out Claudius.

0:34:230:34:26

Is Claudius the right answer?

0:34:260:34:29

It is.

0:34:340:34:36

-Gary, I'm so sorry.

-No worries.

0:34:360:34:38

It feels cruel, but I'm sure I'll see you up here again.

0:34:380:34:41

-Fingers crossed.

-Andrew, you're going through to today's final.

0:34:410:34:44

Helen, Andrew and Richie, there's £1,500 in today's prize pot.

0:34:500:34:55

Only one of you can win that money

0:34:550:34:57

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

0:34:570:35:02

So, Richie, you're a debutante.

0:35:020:35:04

Helen, it's your second time.

0:35:040:35:05

Andrew, this is your third time.

0:35:050:35:07

Could be third time lucky.

0:35:070:35:10

You each start with ten lives.

0:35:100:35:14

Questions are on the buzzer.

0:35:140:35:16

Buzz and get one right,

0:35:160:35:18

and you knock a life off both of your opponents.

0:35:180:35:21

Buzz and get one wrong, and it's you that will lose a life.

0:35:210:35:26

However, some of the questions are impossible,

0:35:260:35:30

which is to say there is no answer -

0:35:300:35:33

the question is illogical, it's absurd, it makes no sense.

0:35:330:35:37

If you think you spotted one of these,

0:35:370:35:39

all you need to do is buzz in and say "impossible".

0:35:390:35:42

This means double trouble for your opponents,

0:35:420:35:45

because they will both lose two lives.

0:35:450:35:48

Be warned, though -

0:35:480:35:50

if you say a question is impossible when it's not,

0:35:500:35:52

or give any other answer to an impossible question,

0:35:520:35:56

it's you who will lose the two lives.

0:35:560:35:59

The last surviving player will take the £1,500.

0:35:590:36:05

Good luck.

0:36:050:36:07

In chess, the act of castling involves moving two pieces...

0:36:070:36:12

-Helen?

-King and the rook.

0:36:120:36:14

The full question was, "..involves moving two pieces,

0:36:140:36:16

"the rook and which other?"

0:36:160:36:17

You said "king", so that is a life off of Andrew and Richie.

0:36:170:36:20

What was the name of Robbie Jackson's

0:36:220:36:25

much-loved pet dog in East Enders?

0:36:250:36:29

-Andrew?

-Bull's-eye.

0:36:290:36:31

I'm afraid not, Andrew.

0:36:310:36:33

It's Wellard. You lose a life.

0:36:330:36:36

To which island in the South Atlantic

0:36:380:36:40

was Napoleon exiled...

0:36:400:36:43

-Richie?

-St Helena.

0:36:430:36:45

It is St Helena, in 1815.

0:36:450:36:47

In which year during World War II did the Battle of the Bulge begin?

0:36:490:36:54

-Helen?

-Impossible.

0:36:540:36:56

It's not impossible, I'm afraid. It was 1944.

0:36:560:36:59

You lose two lives, Helen.

0:36:590:37:01

The film Birdman won the best animated feature Oscar...

0:37:030:37:08

-Helen?

-Impossible.

0:37:080:37:10

This time, it is impossible. It's not an animated film.

0:37:100:37:13

It won Best Picture in 2015.

0:37:130:37:15

So that means two lives off Andrew and two lives off Richie.

0:37:150:37:20

In Greek mythology, Thor was the son of which...

0:37:200:37:24

-Helen?

-Impossible.

0:37:240:37:25

It is impossible. Thor is the son of Odin in Norse mythology.

0:37:250:37:29

Two lives from Andrew and two lives from Richie.

0:37:290:37:32

Doing very well, Helen.

0:37:320:37:34

In 1992, which British athlete won an Olympic gold medal

0:37:340:37:39

in the 400 metres hurdles?

0:37:390:37:42

-Andrew?

-Sally Gunnell.

0:37:430:37:45

It was Sally Gunnell.

0:37:450:37:46

A life from Helen and a life from Richie.

0:37:460:37:49

Which generation of iPhone was unveiled by Apple in September 2016?

0:37:510:37:57

-Richie?

-iPhone 7.

0:37:570:37:58

It was the iPhone 7.

0:37:580:38:00

In which European country is the city of Zurich?

0:38:020:38:09

-Helen?

-Oh...impossible?

0:38:090:38:11

No...!

0:38:110:38:12

It's not impossible, Helen. It's Switzerland.

0:38:120:38:15

Two lives off, taking you down to three.

0:38:150:38:18

Very tight now. Helen, you've got three lives.

0:38:180:38:21

Andrew, you've got two. Richie, you're on four.

0:38:210:38:24

With which song, released in 1997,

0:38:240:38:27

did All Saints have their first UK number one?

0:38:270:38:31

Richie?

0:38:310:38:32

Pure Shores?

0:38:320:38:33

It wasn't Pure Shores. It was Never Ever.

0:38:330:38:36

You lose a life.

0:38:360:38:39

In which decade of the 20th century

0:38:390:38:42

was the coronation of King Edward VIII?

0:38:420:38:45

-Andrew?

-Impossible.

0:38:470:38:49

It is impossible. He abdicated before he was crowned.

0:38:490:38:53

That's two lives from Helen and two lives from Richie,

0:38:530:38:57

which nips you ahead now, Andrew.

0:38:570:39:00

Who portrayed Margaret Thatcher in the 2011 film, The Iron...?

0:39:000:39:05

-Richie?

-Meryl Streep.

0:39:050:39:07

It was Meryl Streep.

0:39:070:39:08

That means a life off Andrew,

0:39:080:39:12

but it means no lives left for you, Helen.

0:39:120:39:14

I'm sorry. It wasn't second time lucky.

0:39:140:39:17

Commiserations. We play on. Andrew, you have one life.

0:39:170:39:23

Richie, you have one life.

0:39:230:39:25

There's quite a bit riding on this question.

0:39:250:39:28

What is the fifth book of the New Testament?

0:39:280:39:31

-Andrew?

-The Acts of the Apostles.

0:39:330:39:35

Absolutely right, Andrew.

0:39:360:39:39

It is the Acts of the Apostles. Richie, you lose a life.

0:39:390:39:42

That went right down to the wire. Very well done, Andrew.

0:39:450:39:49

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

0:39:490:39:52

So, Andrew, it was third time lucky.

0:39:560:39:59

-Yep.

-You've made it through to the £10,000 question.

0:39:590:40:02

You're today's winner, with £1,500.

0:40:020:40:05

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

0:40:050:40:09

if you can answer the £10,000 question,

0:40:090:40:13

cos this is how it works.

0:40:130:40:14

I'm going to show you nine answers and then ask a question.

0:40:140:40:17

Three of the nine answers are correct,

0:40:170:40:20

and if you can find them all within ten seconds,

0:40:200:40:22

you win the £10,000.

0:40:220:40:24

That's the good news. The less good news

0:40:240:40:26

is that three of those answers are wrong.

0:40:260:40:29

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

0:40:290:40:33

The bad news is, of course,

0:40:330:40:36

that three of the nine are impossible,

0:40:360:40:39

and if you do give me any of those, you will lose the £1,500.

0:40:390:40:43

I can only accept the first three answers that you give, so take care.

0:40:430:40:49

All right. Here it is.

0:40:490:40:51

Today's £10,000 question

0:40:510:40:54

is on Television.

0:40:540:40:56

-You ready?

-Go for it.

-Good luck.

0:40:560:41:00

Here are your nine answers.

0:41:000:41:03

And you're looking for...

0:41:170:41:19

..characters in Little Britain that were played by Matt Lucas?

0:41:200:41:24

And your time starts now.

0:41:240:41:27

Lou Todd, Vicky Pollard...

0:41:270:41:29

..Tubbs Tattsyrup.

0:41:330:41:35

So, Vicky Pollard.

0:41:370:41:39

Is Vicky Pollard a right answer?

0:41:390:41:43

Yes.

0:41:440:41:46

She was played by Matt Lucas.

0:41:480:41:50

"Yeah, but, no, but, yeah, but, no, but..."

0:41:500:41:53

Lou Todd.

0:41:530:41:56

Is Lou Todd a character in Little Britain

0:41:560:41:59

played by Matt Lucas?

0:41:590:42:02

I'm afraid it isn't.

0:42:080:42:10

It was played by David Williams.

0:42:100:42:12

So we know that you're not going to be going home with the £10,000.

0:42:120:42:18

We're hoping that you do manage to hold on to the prize pot.

0:42:180:42:23

Is Tubbs Tattsyrup a right answer?

0:42:230:42:28

Andrew, I'm so sorry!

0:42:330:42:35

That's an impossible answer.

0:42:350:42:37

That's a character from The League Of Gentlemen.

0:42:370:42:40

Andrew, I'm afraid that means you've won nothing this time.

0:42:400:42:43

The right answers you were looking for

0:42:430:42:45

to win the £10,000, Dafydd Thomas,

0:42:450:42:49

who was "the only gay in the village",

0:42:490:42:51

and Kenny Craig - "Look into my eyes".

0:42:510:42:54

The other impossibles, that you did avoid,

0:42:540:42:56

Swiss Toni from The Fast Show and Waynetta Slob

0:42:560:42:59

from Harry Enfield's Television Programme,

0:42:590:43:01

played by Kathy Burke.

0:43:010:43:03

So, Andrew, you haven't won anything this time

0:43:030:43:05

but we will see you tomorrow - cheers.

0:43:050:43:07

This has been !mpossible, the quiz where anything is possible.

0:43:100:43:15

See you next time. Goodbye.

0:43:150:43:17

# Impossible

0:43:270:43:29

# Impossible...impossible. #
