Hello, it's The Brain here.

0:00:020:00:05

Do you think you have the mental dexterity and mind power to beat me?

0:00:050:00:09

Try these two games at home to find out.

0:00:090:00:12

A clock is reflected in a mirror.

0:00:140:00:17

What's the real time?

0:00:170:00:19

And here's the second.

0:00:210:00:22

Name the missing winners and losers.

0:00:250:00:27

Did you beat me?

0:00:300:00:32

Find out at the end of the show when I'll give you the answers.

0:00:320:00:35

Now it's time for our four contestants

0:00:350:00:38

to oil their synapses and ignite their mind cells

0:00:380:00:41

as they attempt to Beat The Brain.

0:00:410:00:44

APPLAUSE

0:01:000:01:02

Please welcome the man we all crave...

0:01:020:01:05

it's John Craven!

0:01:050:01:07

Well, thank you very much indeed, and welcome to Beat The Brain.

0:01:070:01:10

On this show, it's not your general knowledge that's put to the test,

0:01:100:01:14

but the way that your mind works,

0:01:140:01:16

as our four contestants face

0:01:160:01:18

fiendish problems, puzzles and posers.

0:01:180:01:20

You can play along at home, as well,

0:01:200:01:22

and hopefully we'll leave your little grey cells a little fitter and a little wiser.

0:01:220:01:26

So, let's say hello to our questioning temptress...

0:01:260:01:29

How are you today, Brain?

0:01:290:01:31

Oh, I feel like a winner today, John.

0:01:310:01:33

Yes, I've got the Cortex Factor!

0:01:330:01:35

Well, I know some people who think that they are going to be

0:01:350:01:38

the winners today - our team.

0:01:380:01:40

Let's meet them now. Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:400:01:42

I'm Gerald, and I'm a carer.

0:01:420:01:44

I'm Barbara, and I'm an English teacher.

0:01:440:01:47

I'm Clive and I'm a research and information officer.

0:01:470:01:50

I'm Pierre, I'm team captain,

0:01:500:01:53

and an IT systems analyst.

0:01:530:01:55

-APPLAUSE

-Welcome, all.

0:01:550:01:57

And, Pierre, team captain, what's the name of your team?

0:01:570:02:00

It's Up The Junction.

0:02:000:02:01

Up The Junction... Why's that?

0:02:010:02:03

Well, it's from a Squeeze song,

0:02:030:02:06

but it's also from Clapham Junction railway station, where...

0:02:060:02:10

Gerald lives nearby, I go through many times when I go into work.

0:02:100:02:13

Right. So, do you think you're going to beat The Brain?

0:02:130:02:15

-We're going to have a good go, yeah.

-Yeah.

-Great.

0:02:150:02:17

Well, this is how it works.

0:02:170:02:19

The show's Brain is divided into six zones...

0:02:190:02:22

Now, The Brain will select four out of those six zones

0:02:280:02:31

for you to play today.

0:02:310:02:33

And, Pierre, as the team captain, it's up to you to decide

0:02:330:02:35

which team members you think would be best in each of those zones. OK?

0:02:350:02:39

You'll face a series of questions in your zones,

0:02:390:02:41

with each correct answer adding three seconds

0:02:410:02:44

to what we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:440:02:46

The more time you build up,

0:02:460:02:48

the better chance you have of beating The Brain in today's final,

0:02:480:02:51

and walking away with our jackpot of £3,000.

0:02:510:02:54

-So, Up The Junction, are you ready to play?

-ALL:

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:02:540:02:58

Right. Time to find out which zone you'll be facing first.

0:02:580:03:01

Brain, zone please.

0:03:010:03:04

Logic it is.

0:03:090:03:10

So, Pierre, who would you nominate for that?

0:03:100:03:13

-I am actually nominating myself for that round.

-Good.

0:03:130:03:15

Well, come and join me, Pierre, in the Logic Zone.

0:03:150:03:17

APPLAUSE

0:03:170:03:19

-Good to see you, Pierre.

-And you.

0:03:210:03:23

So, you mentioned Squeeze. Are you a Squeeze fan?

0:03:230:03:26

Yes, I've got a few of their albums,

0:03:260:03:28

and I've seen some of the members in concert.

0:03:280:03:30

Not the original line-up, but I have seen some of the band in concert.

0:03:300:03:34

As someone heavily involved in IT,

0:03:340:03:35

-is that we think you are good at Logic?

-That's the theory.

0:03:350:03:38

Whether, in practice, I'm actually good at it, I don't know.

0:03:380:03:42

We'll find out.

0:03:420:03:43

Because you'll pay two games in the Logic Zone,

0:03:430:03:45

both games are three questions

0:03:450:03:47

with three seconds each.

0:03:470:03:49

So, Brain, what's the first game?

0:03:490:03:51

Hello, Captain Pierre.

0:03:510:03:53

Hello, Brain.

0:03:530:03:55

A warm-up question first, Pierre.

0:03:550:03:57

What's your favourite smell?

0:03:570:03:59

Erm... I like the smell of leather.

0:03:590:04:01

I bet you do. Here's your first game.

0:04:010:04:04

Rock beats scissors, Pierre.

0:04:060:04:08

Scissors beats paper.

0:04:080:04:10

And paper beats rock.

0:04:100:04:12

You need to identify all three missing terms.

0:04:120:04:14

To help you out, have a trial run.

0:04:140:04:17

Erm... Scissors.

0:04:230:04:25

Paper.

0:04:310:04:33

I think the last one's paper.

0:04:350:04:36

Scissors, paper, paper - is that correct?

0:04:370:04:40

Scissors, scissors, paper.

0:04:400:04:42

Did you use to play this in the playground?

0:04:420:04:45

I haven't played it in the playground,

0:04:450:04:47

but I do know the theory behind it.

0:04:470:04:49

I think I got mixed up with the two scissors in a row.

0:04:490:04:51

I should've said two scissors.

0:04:510:04:53

-So, do you think you've got yourself sorted out now?

-I think so, yes.

0:04:530:04:56

-Ready to play the game?

-Yes.

-Over to you, Brain.

0:04:560:04:59

Pierre, you have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:04:590:05:02

And please remember I can only accept your first answer.

0:05:020:05:05

Your game starts now.

0:05:050:05:07

Paper.

0:05:100:05:12

Rock.

0:05:120:05:14

Paper.

0:05:140:05:16

That's right, yes. Next one.

0:05:170:05:19

Paper.

0:05:210:05:23

Rock.

0:05:230:05:24

Paper.

0:05:240:05:26

Yes, well done. One to go. 25 seconds left.

0:05:270:05:30

Erm... Scissors.

0:05:300:05:32

Paper.

0:05:320:05:33

Paper.

0:05:330:05:35

Scissors, paper... well done! Yes!

0:05:360:05:38

-Three out of three.

-APPLAUSE

0:05:380:05:40

In your first round. That's pretty good going.

0:05:400:05:42

Ready for game two?

0:05:420:05:43

Yes, I'm ready for the next...

0:05:430:05:45

-Can we have it, please, Brain?

-Of course, John.

0:05:450:05:47

Here's your second game, Pierre.

0:05:470:05:49

Three darts will be thrown.

0:05:510:05:53

You must add up the score

0:05:530:05:54

and subtract it from the total.

0:05:540:05:56

To get your eye in, have a trial run.

0:05:560:05:58

12.

0:05:590:06:01

Triple-three.

0:06:010:06:02

Nine.

0:06:020:06:03

What's that total...? And deduct it from 501.

0:06:050:06:08

It's 30, so it's 471.

0:06:080:06:11

471. Well done. Yeah.

0:06:150:06:16

Do you ever score at darts?

0:06:160:06:19

I've done the scoring when we've played 501.

0:06:190:06:22

-So I've done 501 downwards, a few times.

-OK.

0:06:220:06:24

Well, we'll see how you do

0:06:240:06:26

when The Brain gives you some scoring to do. Off we go.

0:06:260:06:29

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:06:290:06:32

Remember, I'll only accept your first answer.

0:06:320:06:35

Your game starts now.

0:06:350:06:37

15.

0:06:380:06:39

Seven.

0:06:390:06:40

19.

0:06:400:06:41

Erm...461.

0:06:500:06:52

461, you say?

0:06:520:06:54

You're one out. Next one.

0:06:540:06:56

Double-14.

0:06:560:06:58

Nine.

0:06:580:06:59

15.

0:06:590:07:00

15 seconds to go.

0:07:080:07:09

Erm...420.

0:07:090:07:12

420, you say?

0:07:120:07:14

408. One to go.

0:07:140:07:16

Six.

0:07:160:07:17

Double-17.

0:07:170:07:19

Triple-four.

0:07:190:07:21

Have a guess. Out of time, I'm afraid.

0:07:210:07:24

Out of time. What is the answer?

0:07:240:07:26

356. But, never mind, it's still a reasonable start for your team.

0:07:280:07:32

Isn't it, Brain?

0:07:320:07:33

Absolutely.

0:07:330:07:35

You added nine seconds in that zone.

0:07:350:07:37

Which means, in total,

0:07:370:07:38

Up The Junction have nine seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:07:380:07:42

Well done. Good to see you, Pierre.

0:07:420:07:44

Please rejoin the team.

0:07:440:07:46

Right, time to find out our next zone, please.

0:07:460:07:49

And who is going to take it on? Brain, the zone.

0:07:490:07:52

Multi-tasking. Pierre, do you reckon will be best at multi-tasking?

0:07:580:08:01

I believe that's Clive.

0:08:010:08:03

OK, Clive, come and join me... in the Multi-tasking Zone.

0:08:030:08:06

APPLAUSE

0:08:060:08:09

So, Clive, why do you think you've been chosen for this zone?

0:08:110:08:14

Maybe because I do a couple of jobs.

0:08:140:08:16

Maybe because I am a musician, so I have to, kind of,

0:08:160:08:18

use both hands and try and split my brain to do different things.

0:08:180:08:21

What about when you're around home - good at multi-tasking then?

0:08:210:08:24

Generally, I just try and do one thing at a time at home.

0:08:240:08:27

-Yes, most men do.

-Yes, you're right.

0:08:270:08:28

Right, well, let's play the Multi-tasking Zone.

0:08:280:08:31

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

0:08:310:08:36

-Hello, Clive.

-Hi, Brain.

0:08:360:08:38

-I love your silver glasses.

-Thank you.

0:08:380:08:41

Your team should be called The Spectaculars.

0:08:410:08:44

Indeed! We were thinking we should be called Four Eyes,

0:08:440:08:46

-or something like that.

-THEY LAUGH

0:08:460:08:49

Here's your first game.

0:08:490:08:51

Count the named objects on the left,

0:08:530:08:55

add the numbers on the right.

0:08:550:08:57

To give you some practice, have a trial run.

0:08:570:09:00

Count the carrots and add the numbers.

0:09:000:09:03

-How many carrots? What was the score?

-Three and nine?

0:09:130:09:16

Three and nine, you're saying? Is that right?

0:09:160:09:19

It is, well done.

0:09:190:09:20

-Ready to play?

-Yes. Off we go.

0:09:200:09:22

Your game starts now.

0:09:220:09:24

Count the ice creams and add the numbers.

0:09:240:09:27

-Three and 10.

-Three ice creams and 10 - is that right?

0:09:370:09:40

No, three and 12.

0:09:420:09:43

A couple out. Right, next one.

0:09:430:09:45

Count the bananas and add the numbers

0:09:450:09:48

-How many bananas?

-Four and 11.

0:09:560:09:58

Four and 11, you're saying? Is that right?

0:09:580:10:01

Five and 19.

0:10:030:10:04

Right. Here comes the last one.

0:10:040:10:06

Count the rubber ducks and add the numbers.

0:10:070:10:09

Five and 20.

0:10:180:10:19

Five and 20. Is that right?

0:10:190:10:21

Yes, it is! Well done.

0:10:210:10:23

Finally got the hang of that one.

0:10:230:10:25

-Yes.

-OK, Brain.

0:10:250:10:27

Can we have game two, please?

0:10:270:10:28

Here is your second game, Clive.

0:10:280:10:31

When the number of sheep matches the number I say,

0:10:330:10:36

add that number to the total.

0:10:360:10:38

Have a trial run.

0:10:380:10:40

I think it's seven.

0:10:540:10:56

You reckon it's seven.

0:10:560:10:58

The total of the matching numbers... It was indeed. Good. Yes.

0:10:580:11:01

-Because this is quite a hard game, this one.

-Yes!

0:11:010:11:03

A lot of people think that. So, let's see how you do.

0:11:030:11:05

-Thank you.

-Let's play for real.

0:11:050:11:07

Your game starts now.

0:11:070:11:09

-10.

-Is that right?

0:11:220:11:24

It is, yes.

0:11:240:11:26

Next one, please?

0:11:260:11:27

-11.

-11, you're saying?

0:11:400:11:42

Is Clive right?

0:11:420:11:44

Yes, he is. You're good at this kind of multi-tasking.

0:11:440:11:46

I like sheep.

0:11:460:11:48

THEY LAUGH

0:11:480:11:50

-13.

-13, Clive.

0:12:030:12:05

Is that right? It is!

0:12:050:12:07

-You're good at counting sheep.

-Yes.

0:12:070:12:09

So, Brain. What do you make of that?

0:12:100:12:12

Well, you are baaa-rilliant in that last game, Clive.

0:12:120:12:16

Thank you, Brain.

0:12:160:12:17

You added 12 seconds in that zone.

0:12:170:12:20

Meaning that Up The Junction now have 21 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:12:200:12:24

-APPLAUSE

-Great.

0:12:240:12:26

That's not bad for halfway through.

0:12:260:12:28

So, if you'd rejoin the teams now. Good to see you.

0:12:280:12:31

Well, we're halfway through and, of course,

0:12:310:12:33

it's quite vital now that you two, Gerald, Barbara,

0:12:330:12:36

do some high scoring for your team,

0:12:360:12:38

because the more seconds you can put into that Brain Bank

0:12:380:12:41

the much better your chance of getting the jackpot

0:12:410:12:43

at the end of the show. OK?

0:12:430:12:45

-So, no pressure(!)

-No pressure, at all!

0:12:450:12:48

THEY LAUGH

0:12:480:12:49

Let's find out which zone is next

0:12:490:12:51

and who is going to take it on.

0:12:510:12:52

Brain, the zone, please.

0:12:520:12:54

Orientation, it is.

0:12:580:13:00

So, Pierre, who are you nominating?

0:13:000:13:01

My thoughts are orientating towards the gentleman at the end there,

0:13:010:13:05

-Gerald.

-OK.

-And, Gerald,

0:13:050:13:06

how do you feel about that?

0:13:060:13:08

I'm ready for the challenge.

0:13:080:13:10

Right, well come and join me in the Orientation Zone.

0:13:100:13:12

APPLAUSE

0:13:120:13:14

-Lovely to meet you.

-And you, too, Gerald.

0:13:160:13:18

-Why do you think you'd be good at orientation, then?

-Erm...

0:13:180:13:21

it's the observation side of it.

0:13:210:13:23

I used to work in photography, so looking at things is important.

0:13:230:13:27

-Shall we find out?

-Yes.

0:13:270:13:28

Right, Brain, please reveal the first game

0:13:280:13:31

-that Gerald will be playing.

-OK.

0:13:310:13:33

-Hello, Gerald.

-Hello, Brain.

0:13:330:13:35

I hear you have celeb-crush.

0:13:350:13:37

Oooh...

0:13:370:13:39

Depends who you're talking about.

0:13:390:13:41

Sigourney Weaver in Alien.

0:13:410:13:43

Well, OK.

0:13:430:13:44

You know she based that role on me.

0:13:440:13:46

I can gather that, yes.

0:13:460:13:47

And who's your favourite man-crush?

0:13:470:13:50

Oh... Brad Pitt!

0:13:510:13:53

In what film?

0:13:530:13:54

-Fight Club.

-Ah, stop.

0:13:540:13:56

We mustn't talk about Fight Club.

0:13:560:13:58

-No, we mustn't talk about Fight Clu...

-Shh!

0:13:580:14:01

Here's your first game.

0:14:010:14:03

Follow the car's journey and identify in which direction it ends up facing.

0:14:060:14:10

You can warm up with a trial run.

0:14:100:14:12

Turn right.

0:14:160:14:18

Turn left.

0:14:180:14:20

Turn left.

0:14:200:14:22

-So, which direction...

-West.

0:14:240:14:25

West, you say. Is Gerald correct?

0:14:250:14:27

You are indeed.

0:14:290:14:30

-Right. So are you ready to play it again?

-Ready.

-Off we go.

0:14:300:14:34

Your game starts now.

0:14:340:14:36

U-turn.

0:14:390:14:41

Turn right.

0:14:410:14:43

U-turn.

0:14:430:14:45

East.

0:14:450:14:47

East, you're saying? Is that right?

0:14:470:14:49

It is indeed. Next one, please.

0:14:490:14:51

Turn right.

0:14:550:14:57

U-turn.

0:14:570:14:59

Turn left.

0:14:590:15:01

Turn right.

0:15:010:15:03

-I lost it on that one.

-Uh-huh.

-GERALD SIGHS

0:15:040:15:06

-The Brian got you, did she?

-She got me there.

0:15:060:15:09

-I'm just going to have to say North.

-He's guessing North.

0:15:090:15:12

No, it was West. One last one.

0:15:130:15:15

U-turn.

0:15:200:15:23

Turn left.

0:15:230:15:25

U-turn.

0:15:250:15:26

Turn right.

0:15:260:15:28

-North.

-North, you're saying?

0:15:330:15:35

-Yes, that's right. The house came in useful that time.

-They did there.

-Yes.

0:15:360:15:40

A different kind of sat nav to the one we used to, eh?

0:15:400:15:42

-Well, if that was on my sat nav, I'd...I'd change the voice.

-LAUGHTER

0:15:420:15:46

-Brain, what do you make of that?

-I think it's a rather wonderful voice.

0:15:460:15:50

Wait a minute, let me find some really difficult questions now. GERALD SIGHS

0:15:500:15:54

Here's your second game.

0:15:540:15:56

What's the real time?

0:16:000:16:02

Have a trial run.

0:16:020:16:03

What is the real time there, Gerald?

0:16:080:16:10

-Ten to one.

-Ten to one, you're saying?

0:16:100:16:14

Is that correct? Incorrect.

0:16:140:16:16

-Oh, it's ten past one.

-Ten past one.

-Yeah.

0:16:160:16:18

So, are you ready to do it for real?

0:16:180:16:21

-Yep. Let's do it.

-Right, off we go.

0:16:210:16:23

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

0:16:230:16:27

Remember, I'll only accept your first answer.

0:16:270:16:30

Your game starts now.

0:16:300:16:32

-Quarter to four.

-Quarter to four, you're saying?

0:16:400:16:43

-GERALD SIGHS

-No. Quarter to five.

0:16:430:16:45

-Yeah?

-12...

0:16:490:16:50

-..40.

-12:40?

0:16:520:16:55

-GERALD SIGHS

-Incorrect.

0:16:550:16:58

Next one.

0:16:580:16:59

-15 seconds to go.

-25 to...

0:17:010:17:05

GERALD HISSES

0:17:050:17:07

..five. GERALD GROANS

0:17:070:17:10

-No. 25 to seven.

-GERALD SIGHS

0:17:100:17:13

Well, that proves one thing, Gerald, you're not a clock watcher.

0:17:130:17:16

-I certainly am not.

-JOHN LAUGHS

0:17:160:17:18

If she had lips, Brain would be smiling all over.

0:17:180:17:21

-Wouldn't you, Brain?

-Absolutely.

0:17:210:17:23

John, if I had lips, I'd be doing a lot more. JOHN LAUGHS

0:17:230:17:26

Gerald, you added six seconds in that Zone.

0:17:260:17:29

This means in total, Up The Junction have 27 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:17:290:17:33

-27 seconds! There we are.

-Thank you.

0:17:330:17:36

OK, Gerald, jolly good. Nice to meet you.

0:17:360:17:38

Barbara, that means just one thing, there's only you left.

0:17:380:17:42

-There's only me.

-Yeah. So why don't you come and join me

0:17:420:17:44

and we'll find out which of the three remaining Zones

0:17:440:17:48

you're going to be playing.

0:17:480:17:49

APPLAUSE

0:17:490:17:51

-Hello, Barbara.

-Pleased to meet you.

-And you, too.

0:17:520:17:55

And I reckon that you have Observation,

0:17:550:17:58

Language and Memory left.

0:17:580:18:01

So which of those three DON'T you want?

0:18:010:18:04

I think Memory was the one I was worried about the most.

0:18:040:18:07

-And why is that?

-Erm...I keep forgetting everything.

-LAUGHTER

0:18:070:18:10

That a pretty good reason not to want it.

0:18:100:18:12

And tell me a bit about yourself?

0:18:120:18:14

-Well, I'm a teacher.

-Uh-huh.

0:18:140:18:16

So I work in a secondary school teaching English.

0:18:160:18:18

And I came to that sort of in my middle age,

0:18:180:18:21

and previously I used to work in the darkroom with Gerald.

0:18:210:18:24

-So shall we find out what Zone it is?

-Oh, yes, please.

0:18:240:18:28

Brain, Zone please.

0:18:280:18:30

-Language.

-Language. Couldn't be better for you really?

-Couldn't be better.

0:18:330:18:37

-I should be good at this, I think.

-Yeah. Well, let's hope so.

0:18:370:18:39

-Yeah.

-Ready to play the first game?

-Yes.

-Can we have it, please, Brain?

0:18:390:18:43

-Hello, Barbara.

-Hello, Brain.

0:18:430:18:45

Here's your first game.

0:18:450:18:47

Barbara, I will give you a word, you need to spell it to me backwards.

0:18:500:18:54

Have a trial run.

0:18:540:18:56

Spell...JOUST.

0:18:560:18:58

Well done. That's right. Yes?

0:19:040:19:06

-So, are you ready?

-Yeah.

-We're ready for you, Brain.

0:19:060:19:09

Barbara, please remember once you've said a letter, you cannot change your mind.

0:19:090:19:13

-OK.

-Your game starts now.

0:19:130:19:17

PIGEON.

0:19:170:19:18

Yes. Jolly good. Next one, please.

0:19:320:19:35

TUTORIAL.

0:19:350:19:37

Oh.

0:19:370:19:39

Yes. Well done.

0:19:540:19:56

These are pretty hard and you're doing very well indeed, Barbara.

0:19:560:20:00

And you've got one to go.

0:20:000:20:02

BICYCLE.

0:20:020:20:05

-E-L...

-It's gone out of my head now.

0:20:200:20:23

-No.

-I thought I got that wrong.

0:20:330:20:36

-Never mind. Never mind. That was a very good start.

-Yeah.

0:20:360:20:39

-So are you ready for game two?

-Yes, I am.

-Can we have it, please, Brain?

0:20:390:20:42

Here's your second game.

0:20:420:20:44

What word is missing from all three others?

0:20:460:20:48

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

0:20:480:20:52

So, it's a three-letter word

0:20:540:20:56

missing from the middle of those three words.

0:20:560:21:00

It would be ALL.

0:21:000:21:01

As in...

0:21:010:21:04

GALLERY, SWALLOW, MEDALLION.

0:21:040:21:06

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

0:21:060:21:08

It is. Yes, well done.

0:21:080:21:10

-Yeah. So, ready to play?

-Yeah.

-OK, let's play for real.

0:21:100:21:14

Barbara, you can have as many guesses as you like,

0:21:140:21:16

but I will not move on to the next question

0:21:160:21:18

-until you give me the correct answer or pass.

-OK.

0:21:180:21:22

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

0:21:220:21:25

Your game starts...now.

0:21:250:21:27

Hmm.

0:21:290:21:31

What's that three-letter word?

0:21:310:21:33

Hmm?

0:21:390:21:41

-Hmm.

-30 seconds left.

0:21:420:21:45

Want to have a guess? Or you can pass.

0:21:450:21:48

-CAT.

-CAT? Yes, well done.

0:21:520:21:55

You'll need to speed up. Here's the next one.

0:21:550:21:57

Erm.

0:22:000:22:02

-BARBARA MUTTERS

-Five seconds left.

0:22:070:22:09

Guess.

0:22:090:22:11

Erm.

0:22:110:22:13

-No. Time is up, I'm afraid.

-Sorry.

-Let's find out the answer.

0:22:130:22:17

RUN! CRUNCH, DRUNK and PRUNES.

0:22:170:22:20

-Easy when you see the answer, isn't it?

-It is easy when you see the answer.

0:22:200:22:24

Brain, how do you feel at the end of the game?

0:22:240:22:28

I like Barbara. And, remember, every second counts in the final

0:22:280:22:32

and your score has helped a lot.

0:22:320:22:34

You added nine seconds in that Zone,

0:22:340:22:36

which means Up The junction have finished

0:22:360:22:38

with a grand total of 36 seconds in their Brain Bank!

0:22:380:22:42

-36 seconds. That's good.

-That's not too bad.

-Well done. Nice to see you.

0:22:420:22:45

If you could rejoin the team, Barbara.

0:22:450:22:48

Well, we've finished the individual Zones now,

0:22:480:22:50

and it's time for our team to try to beat The Brain one last time

0:22:500:22:54

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

0:22:540:22:58

Up The junction, you have built up 36 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:010:23:05

Well, now you must answer a total of eight questions correctly,

0:23:050:23:08

that's two each, to win our jackpot of...

0:23:080:23:12

If you don't, there's still a chance to win some decent money,

0:23:120:23:14

because The Brain has giving you

0:23:140:23:16

a further two minutes in which to answer.

0:23:160:23:19

But the longer you take the less you win,

0:23:190:23:21

because as the time counts down so does the money,

0:23:210:23:24

at the rate of £25 a second.

0:23:240:23:26

Take too long and you'll leave empty-handed, I'm afraid.

0:23:260:23:30

So, Pierre, as the team captain,

0:23:300:23:32

you've chosen your order in which your players are going to face The Brain.

0:23:320:23:35

What's your logic in that?

0:23:350:23:37

Not too much logic. I wanted Gerald to start off to, hopefully, get us off to a flyer,

0:23:370:23:42

and then just to mix up the order just to be a bit different, really.

0:23:420:23:45

-Right. Are you ready to play?

-Ready.

0:23:450:23:47

Let's get serious, then.

0:23:470:23:49

Let's start today's final.

0:23:490:23:51

Over to you, Brain.

0:23:510:23:53

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

0:23:530:23:56

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

0:23:560:24:01

Up The junction, beat me if you can.

0:24:010:24:04

That's the big challenge.

0:24:040:24:05

And as always, we'll be starting with the player on the left.

0:24:050:24:08

That's you, Gerald. So I need two correct answers from you

0:24:080:24:11

before I can move on to the next player and so on down the line. OK?

0:24:110:24:15

Well, the very best of luck. Let's start the final.

0:24:150:24:18

Digital.

0:24:210:24:22

No.

0:24:290:24:31

Triple five, seven, 11.

0:24:310:24:34

Subtract the score.

0:24:340:24:35

GERALD MUTTERS

0:24:350:24:37

4...

0:24:410:24:42

460...

0:24:420:24:45

5.

0:24:450:24:47

-No.

-GERALD SIGHS

0:24:470:24:49

U-turn.

0:24:490:24:51

Turn right. Turn right.

0:24:510:24:53

-Which direction?

-West.

0:24:530:24:56

-No.

-Count the rubber ducks and add the numbers.

0:24:570:25:00

Nine and four.

0:25:050:25:07

No.

0:25:070:25:08

What's the missing word?

0:25:100:25:12

NIRVANA.

0:25:150:25:17

ADVICE. SECRET.

0:25:170:25:19

GERALD SIGHS

0:25:190:25:20

Pass.

0:25:230:25:24

What time is it?

0:25:260:25:28

Ten to eight.

0:25:300:25:32

-No.

-Ten past eight!

0:25:320:25:34

What's the winners and losers?

0:25:340:25:36

Paper!

0:25:390:25:40

Scissors.

0:25:420:25:43

Scissors.

0:25:450:25:47

Yes.

0:25:470:25:49

-Guitar.

-Pass.

0:25:490:25:51

One. Three. Four.

0:25:550:25:58

One. Three.

0:25:580:25:59

Eight.

0:26:020:26:03

Yes. Barbara, what's the missing word?

0:26:030:26:07

SIT.

0:26:070:26:08

Yes.

0:26:080:26:09

Turn right.

0:26:090:26:12

Turn right. Turn right.

0:26:120:26:15

West.

0:26:150:26:16

Yes. Pierre.

0:26:160:26:18

Four. 19. Double 13.

0:26:180:26:21

Subtract the score.

0:26:210:26:23

Pass.

0:26:240:26:26

SEE.

0:26:330:26:35

No.

0:26:360:26:38

Pass.

0:26:450:26:46

Rock. Paper.

0:26:490:26:52

-Scissors.

-Yes.

0:26:520:26:54

-Out of time, I'm afraid. Out of time, Up The Junction.

-APPLAUSE

0:26:560:27:00

Which means, sad to say, you'll be going home with nothing.

0:27:000:27:03

-Ah!

-Bad luck. Never mind.

0:27:030:27:05

But you had a good go, didn't you?

0:27:050:27:07

-Have you enjoyed yourselves?

-Yeah, brilliant.

0:27:070:27:09

And I hope you don't go home too disappointed.

0:27:090:27:11

-No, it's been good fun.

-No.

-And, Brain, you were the winner.

0:27:110:27:14

Yes, I was.

0:27:140:27:16

It was a pleasure going into battle with you, though.

0:27:160:27:19

You're a lovely bunch, but I'm The Brain and you're Up The Junction.

0:27:190:27:23

LAUGHTER

0:27:230:27:24

And thank you all for watching today,

0:27:240:27:26

I hope you enjoyed playing along.

0:27:260:27:28

But for now, it's time to say goodbye from Up The Junction.

0:27:280:27:30

-ALL:

-Goodbye.

-From the Brain.

-Goodbye.

-And from me.

0:27:300:27:34

Bye for now.

0:27:340:27:35

So that's how the team battled The Brain,

0:27:380:27:40

how did you do with those two questions

0:27:400:27:42

I gave you at the start of the show?

0:27:420:27:44

Here are the answers.

0:27:440:27:46

A clock is reflected in a mirror.

0:27:460:27:48

What's the real time?

0:27:480:27:50

The answer is...

0:27:520:27:54

7:35.

0:27:540:27:56

And for the second game.

0:27:560:27:57

Name the missing winners and losers.

0:27:570:28:00

The answer is...

0:28:020:28:04

Whether you got them right or wrong,

join us next time to stretch your mental agility

0:28:080:28:11

with more demanding games on Beat The Brain.

0:28:110:28:15

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 quiz-loving friends from London see if they have the mental power to see off the Brain and win £3,000.
