Hello, it's Brain here.

0:00:030:00:04

Our contestants today have one aim - to beat me. Do you think you could?

0:00:040:00:10

See if you can, by having a go at these puzzling little posers.

0:00:100:00:13

Wrecking ball.

0:00:150:00:17

Count the missing bricks.

0:00:170:00:19

Try this next one - out of this word.

0:00:260:00:29

What three-letter word is missing?

0:00:290:00:31

I'll ease the pain by giving you the answers at the end of the show.

0:00:340:00:37

Now let's see if our team of four have the mental strength to

0:00:370:00:40

win the jackpot on Beat The Brain.

0:00:400:00:43

APPLAUSE

0:01:000:01:02

And now, let's meet the man who always has my full attention -

0:01:020:01:06

John Craven.

0:01:060:01:08

Well, thank you and welcome to a brand-new show, Beat The Brain.

0:01:080:01:12

Now, this is the quiz that challenges the way your mind works,

0:01:120:01:15

rather than your general knowledge.

0:01:150:01:17

All the tricky puzzles and demanding problems

0:01:170:01:20

that our four contestants will face over the next half hour are designed

0:01:200:01:23

so that you can play along at home as well, so sit back and enjoy

0:01:230:01:27

a mental workout with questions posed by the taskmistress herself.

0:01:270:01:32

-How are you today, Brain?

-Oh, you know, I'm on fire today, Mr Craven.

0:01:320:01:36

-All my Zones are sizzling. I'm ready for action.

-And so too are our team.

0:01:360:01:41

They're determined to beat you. So let's meet them.

0:01:410:01:43

Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:430:01:45

I'm Antony and I'm a medical student.

0:01:450:01:48

I'm Sohail and I'm also a medical student.

0:01:480:01:51

I'm Nick and I'm also a medical student.

0:01:510:01:53

I'm Nabeel. I'm the team captain and - you've guessed it -

0:01:530:01:56

I'm also a medical student.

0:01:560:01:58

APPLAUSE

0:01:580:02:00

Welcome, all of you, and, Nabeel, where are you all studying?

0:02:000:02:03

We're all at the University of Manchester.

0:02:030:02:05

And what name have you come up with for the team?

0:02:050:02:07

Well, the team name was picked by Nick

0:02:070:02:10

-and so I think he'll be best to describe.

-Well, what is it, Nick?

0:02:100:02:14

Well, it's the Nabulisers,

0:02:140:02:15

because Nabeel came up with the idea of actually applying for this show.

0:02:150:02:19

He put the application together,

0:02:190:02:20

so I wanted to have his name incorporated in it and we're

0:02:200:02:22

all medical students,

0:02:220:02:24

-so I wanted to combine the two and I came up with the Nabulisers.

-OK.

0:02:240:02:28

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

0:02:280:02:30

The show's Brain is divided into six Zones -

0:02:300:02:33

Logic, Memory, Orientation, Observation, Language,

0:02:330:02:37

and Multitasking.

0:02:370:02:39

Now, the Brain will select four out of those six Zones for you to

0:02:390:02:43

play today and, Nabeel, as the captain, you must decide

0:02:430:02:46

which member of the team you think is best for each of those Zones, OK?

0:02:460:02:50

You will face a series of questions in your Zone with each

0:02:500:02:53

correct answer adding three seconds to what we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:530:02:57

And the more time you build up, the better chance you have of beating

0:02:570:03:00

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

0:03:000:03:05

So, Nabulisers, are you ready to play?

0:03:050:03:08

ALL: Yes, John.

0:03:080:03:10

Good. Well, it's time to find out which Zone you'll be facing first.

0:03:100:03:13

So, Brain - Zone, please.

0:03:130:03:15

-Observation.

-Observation it is.

0:03:180:03:21

So, Nabeel, who are you going to nominate for that?

0:03:210:03:24

Well, we discussed beforehand what would be suitable for each player.

0:03:240:03:28

-Yeah?

-And for Observation, I think it was Antony?

0:03:280:03:32

-We came up with Antony.

-Really?

-Yeah.

-Did you all agree on that?

0:03:320:03:35

He's the only one that wears glasses, so...

0:03:350:03:38

We'll find out if it's the right decision. Antony, come and join me.

0:03:380:03:41

APPLAUSE

0:03:410:03:45

Well, why did they think you're going to be good at Observation?

0:03:450:03:48

It's a thin link between glasses and being good at observing things.

0:03:480:03:53

And why did you decide to become a medical student?

0:03:530:03:56

It started really young, when it was like science was interesting

0:03:560:04:00

and then, just as you develop and you get older, like, it was really

0:04:000:04:04

nice when I volunteered and you could see what you could do for people.

0:04:040:04:08

-Yeah. And you're enjoying it so far?

-Yes, it's really good.

0:04:080:04:11

See if you enjoy trying to beat the Brain.

0:04:110:04:14

You play two games in this Zone.

0:04:140:04:16

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each.

0:04:160:04:19

So, Brain, what's the first game?

0:04:190:04:22

-Hello, Antony.

-Hello, Brain.

0:04:220:04:24

-A little bird tells me it's your birthday today.

-Yes, it may be.

0:04:240:04:28

-What year were you born?

-I was born in 1994.

-Oh, my gosh!

0:04:280:04:33

Mr Craven has jumpers older than you!

0:04:330:04:36

-Yes! So it's your 21st birthday today?

-Yes.

0:04:360:04:39

-Well, very many congratulations.

-Thanks very much.

0:04:390:04:41

-You deserve to beat the Brain.

-Hopefully.

-We'll wait and see.

0:04:410:04:44

Here's a present for you - your first game. Catch me if you can!

0:04:440:04:49

Antony, tell me which number plate you saw.

0:04:490:04:52

To help you out, have a trial run.

0:04:520:04:54

Which one of those six did you see?

0:05:020:05:06

Aw, I've forgotten the end now. Erm...

0:05:060:05:09

HE LAUGHS

0:05:090:05:10

-Concentrate.

-Um, I believe it was number...

0:05:100:05:13

..six.

0:05:160:05:18

Number six, you believe. Let's have a look.

0:05:180:05:20

No, it was number four.

0:05:200:05:22

-This is going to go well(!)

-Ready to play?

-Yeah, why not.

-OK.

0:05:220:05:26

Let's play for real.

0:05:260:05:28

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:05:280:05:31

Every correct answer will add three seconds to your Brain Bank.

0:05:310:05:34

Your game starts now.

0:05:340:05:35

Which one do you reckon? One, two, three, four, five, six?

0:05:440:05:47

-Er, number three.

-Number three, you say. Is that right?

0:05:490:05:53

Yeah, Antony, well done. Yeah. Next one.

0:05:530:05:55

-Ooh, that was quick.

-Er, number one.

-Number one.

0:06:010:06:04

-Well, that didn't faze you, did it? Ready for the last one?

-Yes.

0:06:050:06:09

-That was going the opposite way that time.

-Er, number four.

0:06:170:06:21

Number four, you say.

0:06:210:06:23

Is that correct? Yes.

0:06:230:06:24

-Well, that's pretty good. That's maximum seconds, so far.

-Yeah.

0:06:240:06:27

Nine seconds into the Brain. That's a very good way to start.

0:06:270:06:30

Yeah, just hustled her with a test.

0:06:300:06:34

-Ready for the next game?

-Yes.

0:06:340:06:36

-Right, off we go.

-You hustler!

0:06:360:06:39

THEY LAUGH

0:06:390:06:41

Here's your second game. Wrecking ball.

0:06:410:06:44

Count the number of missing bricks. To get your eye in, have a trial run.

0:06:440:06:49

How many bricks have gone?

0:06:540:06:58

-Er, 13.

-13, you say? Is that right?

0:06:580:07:02

It is indeed. Good. Was that a careful calculation or a guess?

0:07:020:07:06

-Careful calculation.

-Of course, yeah. Ready to calculate some more?

0:07:060:07:09

-Hopefully.

-Off we go.

0:07:090:07:11

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:07:110:07:14

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:07:140:07:18

Your game starts now.

0:07:180:07:19

-How many have gone?

-18.

-18, you say.

0:07:300:07:32

That's correct, yeah. Well done.

0:07:320:07:34

30 seconds left.

0:07:340:07:35

20.

0:07:500:07:52

20, that's correct. You've got 12 seconds left for the last one.

0:07:520:07:55

-Three seconds. Quickly. Guess.

-21.

-21, you say.

0:08:020:08:05

20. Aw, just one out.

0:08:050:08:07

-And you're 21 today!

-Yeah!

-HE LAUGHS

0:08:070:08:11

-Well, you did very well there, didn't you?

-Yeah.

0:08:110:08:13

-That ain't a bad start for your team, is it, Brain?

-No.

0:08:130:08:17

Birthday boy, you did very well there, because every second counts.

0:08:170:08:20

You added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:08:200:08:23

This means the Nabulisers have 15 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:08:230:08:27

-Well done. Good to see you. Have a great birthday.

-That's all right.

0:08:270:08:30

A celebration later, I hope? Rejoin your team-mates.

0:08:300:08:34

Well, it's time to find out our next Zone now

0:08:340:08:36

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

0:08:360:08:40

-Memory.

-It's Memory. So, Nabeel. Who's good at Memory?

0:08:440:08:49

Well, John, again, we had a clear person for Memory.

0:08:490:08:53

-And I think that would have been Sohail.

-Sohail?

-Sohail.

-Why is that?

0:08:530:08:59

Well, Sohail, um...

0:08:590:09:01

He's quite famous for not doing any work during our semester,

0:09:010:09:05

during our term, and then somehow miraculously getting a good mark

0:09:050:09:08

at the end and we think it's down to his memory.

0:09:080:09:10

Down to his memory. And a bit of late revision!

0:09:100:09:13

Well, come and join me, Sohail, in the Memory Zone.

0:09:130:09:16

APPLAUSE

0:09:160:09:19

That's a pretty fine beard you've got there!

0:09:190:09:22

-Thank you. I'm quite proud of it!

-Didn't you grow...

0:09:220:09:26

was it the moustache for some reason?

0:09:260:09:28

Yeah, during Movember, I grew...

0:09:280:09:31

It's quite long now, but I curled it during Movember.

0:09:310:09:34

-Yeah, sort of twirly bits at the end.

-Twirls, yeah.

0:09:340:09:37

Well, let's see how you do.

0:09:370:09:39

Brain, please reveal the first game that Sohail will be playing today.

0:09:390:09:43

-Hello, Sohail.

-Hello, Brain.

0:09:430:09:45

Oh, if I had fingers, I'd run them through that beard of yours!

0:09:450:09:49

I have no answer for that!

0:09:490:09:51

LAUGHTER

0:09:510:09:52

Here's your first game.

0:09:520:09:55

Sohail, repeat the order in which the colours flash.

0:09:550:10:00

To give you some practice, have a trial run.

0:10:000:10:02

Green, pink, white and red.

0:10:110:10:14

Let's see if you're right.

0:10:140:10:16

-You are indeed, yes. No problem there. Ready to play for real?

-Yep.

0:10:160:10:20

Off we go. Can we have the game, please, Brain?

0:10:200:10:22

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:10:220:10:26

Your game starts now.

0:10:260:10:27

So, white, purple, green, black, pink.

0:10:360:10:41

White, purple, green, black, pink. Yes, well done. Next one, please.

0:10:430:10:47

So, black, yellow, white, yellow, blue, green.

0:10:580:11:04

See if that's correct.

0:11:040:11:06

Black, yellow, white, yellow, blue, green. Yes, well done.

0:11:060:11:10

Final one coming up.

0:11:100:11:12

So, purple, white, yellow,

0:11:230:11:26

purple, pink, red, green.

0:11:260:11:31

Let's have a look and see. Purple, white, yellow...

0:11:310:11:35

Oh, yes, you said purple, didn't you, instead of white?

0:11:350:11:39

And then, pink, red and green were right.

0:11:390:11:41

Just that one in the middle that you got wrong.

0:11:410:11:44

-I'm sure I said it right in my head.

-You didn't.

0:11:440:11:47

-LAUGHTER

-Except you didn't. So, ready for game two?

-Yep.

0:11:470:11:51

Here's your second game.

0:11:510:11:54

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

0:11:540:11:59

Have a trial run.

0:11:590:12:01

-Which was the winning line?

-A.

0:12:080:12:10

A, you say. Is that correct?

0:12:100:12:13

-It is indeed. You play noughts and crosses?

-Yeah, I do.

-Yeah?

0:12:130:12:17

-I'm quite good at it.

-You obviously are.

0:12:170:12:20

-Ready for it?

-Hopefully.

-Bring it on.

0:12:200:12:23

Quite good at it, eh? Don't get cocky!

0:12:230:12:25

LAUGHTER Please remember, I'll only accept your first answer.

0:12:250:12:30

Your game starts now.

0:12:300:12:31

I think that's C.

0:12:400:12:42

Let's see if you're correct.

0:12:420:12:44

Yes, you are.

0:12:440:12:45

Good. Next one, please.

0:12:450:12:47

-Which one do you think?

-That one was B.

0:12:550:12:58

Let's see if that's right. Yes, well done.

0:12:580:13:01

One to go. So far, every right to be cocky.

0:13:010:13:03

That one's A.

0:13:100:13:12

-A.

-Yeah.

0:13:120:13:13

Is that correct?

0:13:130:13:15

-It is indeed. Well done! That was a pretty good round, wasn't it?

-Yeah.

0:13:150:13:19

Nine seconds in that round. And six in the one before.

0:13:190:13:23

-So, Brain, it's looking bad for you.

-Absolutely.

0:13:230:13:26

I fear my jackpot could be in jeopardy.

0:13:260:13:29

Sohail, you added 15 seconds in that zone.

0:13:290:13:32

This means in total the Nabulisers now

0:13:320:13:35

have 30 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:13:350:13:37

-That was great, Sohail. Well done.

-Thank you.

-Please, rejoin the team.

0:13:370:13:41

APPLAUSE

0:13:410:13:43

Well, you're all doing very well so far.

0:13:430:13:45

Brain, can we have a zone, please?

0:13:450:13:47

-Multi-tasking. So, is it you or Nick, Nabeel?

-We'll go for Nick.

0:13:530:13:57

-Nick, join me, please.

-APPLAUSE

0:13:570:14:00

Do you think you're going to be any good at Multi-tasking?

0:14:020:14:05

I do hope so, otherwise this is going to be really embarrassing.

0:14:050:14:08

-Do you do a lot of multi-tasking?

-Um... No, actually.

0:14:080:14:12

Is it too late to change?

0:14:120:14:14

No, we'll be good.

0:14:140:14:16

Well, let's find out, Nick, how you'll do in the Multi-tasking Zone?

0:14:160:14:20

Don't forget, there are another 18 precious seconds on offer in this Zone.

0:14:200:14:23

That's three seconds for every correct answer.

0:14:230:14:26

So, Brain, please reveal the first game that Nick will be playing.

0:14:260:14:29

-Hello, Nick.

-Hey, Brain.

-Here's your first game.

0:14:290:14:34

Nick, count the named object on the left, add the numbers on the right.

0:14:360:14:40

You can warm up with a trial run.

0:14:400:14:42

Count the carrots and add the numbers.

0:14:420:14:45

So, how many carrots and what was the total?

0:14:530:14:55

Four carrots and a total of seven, I think.

0:14:550:14:58

Four and seven.

0:14:580:15:01

-Four and 11.

-Wow! That's the easiest one as well, isn't it?

0:15:010:15:04

I always find... I don't know whether you do this or not, but add up

0:15:040:15:07

the objects on the left on your hand and add up the numbers in your head.

0:15:070:15:11

-Yeah. That's what I thought I did.

-Is that what you were trying to do?

0:15:110:15:15

-Yeah! Must have blacked out.

-Maybe you'll be luckier, as we play for real.

0:15:150:15:19

-Ready to go?

-Let's do this, John.

-Give it a go. Let's go.

0:15:190:15:22

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

0:15:220:15:25

Every correct answer will add three seconds to your Brain Bank.

0:15:250:15:29

Your game starts now.

0:15:290:15:31

Count the ice creams and add the numbers.

0:15:310:15:33

How many ice creams and what was the total?

0:15:410:15:44

-Two and a total of 11, I think.

-Two and 11. Are you right?

0:15:440:15:48

Yes, you are. Well done.

0:15:480:15:50

-OK, next one coming up.

-Count the dogs and add the numbers.

0:15:500:15:53

-How many dogs, what was the total?

-Four dogs, total of 22?

0:16:060:16:10

Four and let's see...

0:16:100:16:12

Four and 22, yes. You're doing well.

0:16:120:16:15

-This really is multi-tasking, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:16:150:16:18

So, here comes the last one.

0:16:180:16:20

Count the bananas and add the numbers.

0:16:200:16:22

-How many bananas and what was the number?

-I think it's four and 19.

0:16:330:16:37

Four and 19. Is that correct?

0:16:370:16:40

Five and 19! One banana out.

0:16:400:16:43

-Never mind. That's not a bad start at all.

-We'll take that.

0:16:430:16:47

Six seconds, already in the bank. So, can we have game two, please?

0:16:470:16:51

That's what your friends say about you, Nick.

0:16:510:16:53

Oh, Nick, always one banana out.

0:16:530:16:56

LAUGHTER

0:16:560:16:58

-Who have you been talking to?

-Here's your second game.

0:16:580:17:02

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

0:17:020:17:06

Have a trial run.

0:17:060:17:08

-How many are left on the bus?

-I don't know.

0:17:140:17:17

-Um... Two?

-Two?

0:17:170:17:19

Is that correct? No, it was one.

0:17:190:17:23

Again, I think it's useful to try and sort of use your fingers...

0:17:230:17:27

Maybe those going on with your fingers and those going off, counting in your head.

0:17:270:17:30

-OK. We'll try that.

-See if my tip works.

0:17:300:17:33

-I'll blame you, John, if not.

-Blame me. Off we go.

0:17:330:17:36

Please remember, I will only accept your first answer.

0:17:360:17:40

Your game starts now.

0:17:400:17:42

How many on the bus?

0:17:480:17:50

Do you know what? I think I blacked out. I have no idea!

0:17:500:17:53

-Um...

-Well, have a guess.

0:17:530:17:56

-No, sorry, four. Four.

-Four.

0:17:560:17:58

That's right.

0:17:580:18:00

-LAUGHTER

-Was that a guess?

-No.

0:18:000:18:03

I was trying to take five away from one,

0:18:030:18:05

so I was like - there can't be negative four people on the bus.

0:18:050:18:08

-No.

-So, yeah.

-Yeah, OK.

-There you go.

0:18:080:18:11

-Have that kind of logic on the second bus. OK?

-OK.

-Here it comes.

0:18:110:18:14

How many still aboard?

0:18:250:18:27

-Um... I'm going to say two.

-Two.

0:18:270:18:30

Is that the correct number?

0:18:300:18:32

-It is!

-I like your tip. It's not going bad, is it?

0:18:320:18:35

-Very impressive so far.

-I owe it all to you, John.

-One to go.

0:18:350:18:39

Here comes your third bus.

0:18:390:18:40

So, how many left?

0:18:510:18:52

Um... It's either three or four. I'm going to go for three. Three, Brain.

0:18:540:18:59

Three, you're saying. Is that right?

0:18:590:19:01

LAUGHTER

0:19:010:19:03

-Six! Neither three nor four.

-Well, at least it wasn't four, I suppose.

0:19:030:19:07

-But you should be quite pleased with that.

-OK.

-All right?

0:19:070:19:10

-Shouldn't he, Brain?

-Absolutely.

0:19:100:19:12

That performance may mean extra cash in today's final.

0:19:120:19:15

Nick, you added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:19:150:19:18

This means the Nabulisers have 42 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:19:180:19:22

I hope you enjoyed playing the game. Rejoin the team.

0:19:220:19:25

-APPLAUSE

-Well, Captain Nabeel. It's up to you now, isn't it?

0:19:250:19:29

Because you're the only player left. So, come and join me

0:19:290:19:32

-and we'll find out which zone you're going to be playing.

-OK.

0:19:320:19:37

APPLAUSE

0:19:370:19:39

Well, I make it that there's Orientation, Logic

0:19:390:19:43

and Language left.

0:19:430:19:44

-Yes.

-So, which don't you want?

-Orientation, Logic or Language!

-LAUGHTER

0:19:440:19:49

Well, I'm afraid it's got to be one,

0:19:490:19:51

so which would be your least favourite?

0:19:510:19:54

Out of the three, Orientation would be my least favourite.

0:19:540:19:57

-And why's that?

-I can't orientate.

0:19:570:20:01

One of the course modules is anatomy

0:20:010:20:03

and you need to orientate yourself round that and I'm not...best...

0:20:030:20:07

-So, you're not going to be an anatomist, then?

-No!

0:20:070:20:11

Is the short answer!

0:20:110:20:12

OK, and let's find out which Zone the Brain has chosen for you

0:20:120:20:16

-to play.

-Thank you.

-Brain, could we have that Zone, please?

0:20:160:20:21

-Oh, it's Language.

-OK.

-How do you feel about getting Language?

0:20:260:20:31

Mixed feelings. Um... It could be worse.

0:20:310:20:35

-It could have been better, but...

-Yeah. Ready to play?

-Yeah.

0:20:350:20:38

-Let's play the Language Zone.

-DEEP: Hello, Nabeel.

-Hi, Brain.

0:20:380:20:42

I love your deep voice.

0:20:420:20:44

-Likewise.

-Huh! I hear you're very good at accents.

0:20:440:20:47

Do a Scottish accent for me.

0:20:470:20:49

-SCOTTISH ACCENT:

-I don't think I can do that.

0:20:490:20:52

No, do a Scottish accent for me. LAUGHTER

0:20:520:20:54

Here's your first game.

0:20:540:20:56

Nabeel, what word is missing from all three others?

0:20:580:21:02

Here's a trial run to help you get a feel for the game.

0:21:020:21:06

-So, it's a three-letter word...

-Man.

0:21:080:21:11

-Sorry, I'm just looking at the words. I think commander works.

-Man?

0:21:110:21:16

-Dormant.

-Dormant.

-And romantic.

-Well, that sounds right to me.

0:21:160:21:19

Let's see if you're correct.

0:21:190:21:21

-It is indeed, yes.

-OK.

-Ready to do it for real?

-Yes.

0:21:210:21:25

-Can we have the game then, please?

-Ah, I remember Commander Dormant.

0:21:250:21:29

He was romantic! LAUGHTER

0:21:290:21:32

You can have as many guesses as you like, but I will not move on to the

0:21:320:21:35

next question until you give me the correct answer or you can pass.

0:21:350:21:39

You have a maximum of 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:21:390:21:43

Your game starts now.

0:21:430:21:44

Missing three-letter word.

0:21:470:21:50

Bit?

0:21:520:21:54

Yes. Well done. Next one.

0:21:540:21:56

Um...

0:21:570:21:59

30 seconds left.

0:21:590:22:01

Er...

0:22:010:22:03

E-R-B?

0:22:050:22:07

No, pass.

0:22:070:22:09

Pass? You're going to pass? Your next one... That was rag.

0:22:090:22:12

18 seconds left.

0:22:120:22:14

Oh, can't do this. Ten? T-E-N?

0:22:140:22:16

Ten? Yes, well done.

0:22:160:22:18

Intense, attend, stencil. Yeah. So, that's two out of three.

0:22:180:22:21

-Not bad going, to start with. Right. Ready for the next game?

-Yes, John.

0:22:210:22:26

-Right. Off we go.

-Here's your second game.

0:22:260:22:29

Rearrange the newspaper cuttings to form a word.

0:22:310:22:34

Have a trial run to help you get a feel for the game.

0:22:340:22:36

So, what word could that be?

0:22:390:22:41

Dingo? No, hang on.

0:22:410:22:42

Wait. Indigo.

0:22:420:22:45

Indigo. Let's see if that's right.

0:22:450:22:47

Yes, it is.

0:22:470:22:48

-Well, I think you got the hang of that one, didn't you?

-Yeah.

0:22:480:22:50

-Ready to play?

-Yes.

-Off we go.

0:22:500:22:53

You can have as many guesses as you like, but I will not move

0:22:530:22:56

on to the next question until you give me the correct answer or pass.

0:22:560:23:00

Your game starts now.

0:23:000:23:01

Unicorn.

0:23:050:23:06

Unicorn, is that correct?

0:23:060:23:08

It is. Next one, please.

0:23:080:23:10

League.

0:23:120:23:13

League, yes. One to go, with 32 seconds.

0:23:130:23:16

Ooh.

0:23:160:23:18

Take your time.

0:23:180:23:20

Is it thwarted?

0:23:220:23:23

Thwarted, is it? It is, indeed. No problem. 23 seconds to spare.

0:23:230:23:28

-That's all right.

-Well done, Nabeel.

0:23:280:23:30

You've put your team in a very solid position for standing

0:23:300:23:33

a really good chance of getting the jackpot.

0:23:330:23:36

-Yes.

-Hasn't he, Brain?

0:23:360:23:38

Yes, it pains me to say it but well done, Nabeel.

0:23:380:23:41

You added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:23:410:23:44

This means the Nabulisers have finished with a grand total

0:23:440:23:49

of 57 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:23:490:23:52

-APPLAUSE

-Well, that is a very good score. Congratulations, Nabeel.

0:23:520:23:55

-Thank you very much.

-Please rejoin your team.

-APPLAUSE

0:23:550:23:59

Well, we've finished the individual Zones

0:23:590:24:02

and now it's time for our team to try to beat the Brain

0:24:020:24:05

one last time and take home some real cash in today's final.

0:24:050:24:09

The Nabulisers,

0:24:110:24:13

you've built up a very useful 57 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:24:130:24:17

You can now use that to try to beat the Brain

0:24:170:24:19

and take home today's jackpot of £3,000.

0:24:190:24:23

To win, you need to answer eight questions correctly,

0:24:230:24:26

that's two each, within your 57 seconds.

0:24:260:24:29

If you can't, you can still take home a decent amount of cash

0:24:290:24:32

because the Brain has generously given you a further two minutes

0:24:320:24:36

to answer the questions, but as the seconds slip away,

0:24:360:24:40

so does the cash, at the rate of £25 a second,

0:24:400:24:43

and if you run out of time, you run out of money.

0:24:430:24:46

Now, Nabeel, as the captain,

0:24:460:24:48

you've chosen which order the team is going to play.

0:24:480:24:50

What's your logic behind that?

0:24:500:24:52

We've just gone for the reverse of what we went

0:24:520:24:54

-when we played the games.

-OK. Time to get serious now.

0:24:540:24:57

Let's start today's final. Over to you, Brain.

0:24:570:25:01

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

0:25:010:25:05

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

0:25:050:25:09

Nabulisers, beat me if you can.

0:25:090:25:11

That's the challenge!

0:25:110:25:13

And as usual, we'll start with the player on the left,

0:25:130:25:16

that's you, Nabeel.

0:25:160:25:18

I need two correct answers from you before I can pass to the next

0:25:180:25:21

-person down the line and so on. OK?

-Yeah.

-Best of luck, everybody.

0:25:210:25:24

Let's start the final.

0:25:240:25:26

D.

0:25:320:25:33

No.

0:25:330:25:35

-What is the word?

-Charter.

0:25:350:25:37

Yes.

0:25:370:25:38

How many on the bus?

0:25:380:25:40

Four?

0:25:430:25:44

No.

0:25:440:25:46

-Pass.

-Next one. Quickly.

0:25:460:25:47

What numberplate?

0:25:500:25:52

1.

0:25:530:25:54

Yes. Nick.

0:25:540:25:55

Yellow, black, pink, green, blue.

0:26:000:26:02

Correct.

0:26:020:26:05

Count the rubber ducks and add the numbers.

0:26:050:26:08

Two and 11.

0:26:120:26:13

Yes.

0:26:130:26:14

Sohail.

0:26:140:26:16

What's the missing word?

0:26:160:26:17

Pit.

0:26:190:26:20

Yes.

0:26:200:26:22

We're into the countdown.

0:26:250:26:27

14.

0:26:270:26:29

Yes. Antony.

0:26:290:26:30

C.

0:26:340:26:36

Next, please.

0:26:370:26:39

Weekend.

0:26:390:26:40

Yes.

0:26:400:26:42

How many on the bus?

0:26:420:26:44

Four.

0:26:460:26:48

Stop the clock!

0:26:480:26:49

APPLAUSE

0:26:490:26:52

One minute 37 left. Eight correct answers.

0:26:520:26:57

-Congratulations, you've won £2,425.

-APPLAUSE

0:26:570:26:59

Well done!

0:27:050:27:07

How about that? What a 21st birthday present, Antony!

0:27:070:27:11

-You've got to share it between four, but...

-That's what they think!

0:27:110:27:15

So, Nabeel, your verdict on the team's performance?

0:27:150:27:18

I had a bit of a blunder at the beginning,

0:27:180:27:20

but I think they picked up quite well, I'm happy. Well done.

0:27:200:27:24

And congratulations. And spend the money wisely.

0:27:240:27:27

LAUGHTER

0:27:270:27:29

-They did well, didn't they, Brain?

-Absolutely. I'm not a bad loser.

0:27:290:27:32

They're a fine bunch of men

0:27:320:27:34

and the medical profession will be a better place because of them.

0:27:340:27:37

-Thank you.

-Well said! And thank you all at home for watching today.

0:27:370:27:41

I hope you enjoyed playing along with us,

0:27:410:27:43

-but for now, it's goodbye from the Nabulisers...

-Goodbye.

-Goodbye.

0:27:430:27:48

-..from the Brain...

-Goodbye.

-..and from me.

0:27:480:27:51

See you next time we play Beat The Brain.

0:27:510:27:53

Just before you go, here are the answers

0:27:560:27:59

to those two teasing questions I gave you at the start of the show.

0:27:590:28:03

Count the missing bricks.

0:28:030:28:06

The answer is 11.

0:28:090:28:12

And what about the second game? What three-letter word is missing?

0:28:120:28:16

The answer is pan. I hope you enjoyed your mental workout today.

0:28:200:28:24

Join us in the mind gym next time on Beat The Brain.

0:28:240:28:28

John Craven hosts the quiz in which contestants and viewers face a mental fitness test set by the most exacting of task masters: the Brain. A team of four contestants must navigate a selection of tricky puzzles, fiendish logic problems and prickly posers in an effort to win a cash prize.

In this episode, four friends who are all medical students from Manchester try to find a remedy to beat the Brain.
