Hello, I'm The Brain.

0:00:020:00:04

There are some tricky games for our team to tackle today.

0:00:040:00:07

Why don't you try a couple yourself?

0:00:070:00:09

Are they left or right hands?

0:00:120:00:14

And here's another one.

0:00:220:00:24

Follow The Leader.

0:00:240:00:26

Memorise the order of the colours in the musical sequence.

0:00:260:00:29

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

0:00:340:00:37

Now, watch how our team does today as they attempt to beat The Brain.

0:00:370:00:41

APPLAUSE

0:00:590:01:00

Who's the most respected man on British TV?

0:01:000:01:03

It's John Craven.

0:01:030:01:05

HE LAUGHS

0:01:050:01:06

Thank you. I'm not sure about that but welcome to Beat The Brain.

0:01:060:01:10

This is your chance to pit your wits against the trickiest opponent

0:01:100:01:14

on television - The Brain. How are you feeling today?

0:01:140:01:17

-Tricky?

-Oh-ho! Well, you know me, John. I'm tricky,

0:01:170:01:20

I'm complicated, I have the consistency of firm jelly,

0:01:200:01:24

I'm just me. He-he-he!

0:01:240:01:26

Well, let's see what our team makes of you. Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:260:01:29

I'm Mark and I'm a journalist.

0:01:310:01:33

I'm Debbie and I'm a graphic designer.

0:01:330:01:35

I'm Ben and I'm a microbiologist.

0:01:360:01:37

I'm Dan. I'm the team captain and I'm also a journalist.

0:01:390:01:42

-APPLAUSE

-Well, welcome to all of you.

0:01:420:01:44

Dan, you're captain, so what name have you chosen for the team?

0:01:440:01:47

We are Dorks United.

0:01:470:01:49

-HE LAUGHS

-Dorks United! Why that?

0:01:490:01:52

Well, it was actually Debbie's idea.

0:01:520:01:54

It's essentially because the four of us are all 24-carat dorks.

0:01:540:02:00

What's a dork? Just for people who don't know.

0:02:000:02:02

I think it's like the perfect storm of nerdy pastimes

0:02:020:02:07

with a certain lack of physical grace and just...

0:02:070:02:11

THEY LAUGH

0:02:110:02:13

-So, I mean, do you mind being called dorks, Mark?

-No, I don't mind.

0:02:130:02:15

I think it's a fair description.

0:02:150:02:17

Well, all the very best to all of you.

0:02:170:02:18

And this is how we play the game.

0:02:180:02:20

The show's Brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:200:02:24

Logic, Memory,

0:02:240:02:26

Orientation, Observation,

0:02:260:02:27

Language and Multi-tasking.

0:02:270:02:30

Now, The Brain will select four from those six Zones

0:02:300:02:33

for you to play today.

0:02:330:02:34

And, Dan, as captain, you must then nominate which team member

0:02:340:02:37

you think will perform best in each Zone. OK?

0:02:370:02:41

You're playing for time instead of points, with every correct answer

0:02:410:02:45

adding three seconds to your total.

0:02:450:02:47

What we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:470:02:49

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

0:02:490:02:52

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

0:02:520:02:57

So, Dorks United, are you ready to play?

0:02:570:03:00

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:03:000:03:01

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

0:03:010:03:04

So, Brain, Zone, please.

0:03:040:03:05

So, Memory.

0:03:110:03:12

Who do you think, Dan, will be

0:03:120:03:14

the best in your team in the Memory Zone?

0:03:140:03:17

Well, it's not so much a case of the best, in this case -

0:03:170:03:22

Mark said he was terrible at this, Ben said he was terrible,

0:03:220:03:24

I'm terrible so, by default, it has to be Debbie.

0:03:240:03:28

-So, you're the remaining dork.

-Yeah.

-Come on in, Debbie, then

0:03:280:03:31

and play in the Memory Zone.

0:03:310:03:33

APPLAUSE

0:03:330:03:34

So, do you think you'll be good at Memory?

0:03:360:03:38

-I'll probably be better than them.

-If everyone else is so bad!

-Yeah.

0:03:380:03:42

Yeah, me and Ben played a couple of Memory games and I did a lot better

0:03:420:03:45

than him but I don't know if that means I'm good at it.

0:03:450:03:48

OK, let's see how you do. All the very best in the Memory Zone.

0:03:480:03:51

So, you will play two games in the Zone.

0:03:510:03:54

-Both games have three questions worth three seconds each. OK?

-OK.

0:03:540:03:58

-So, Brain, what's the first game?

-Hello, Debbie.

-Hi.

0:03:580:04:02

-Not feeling too nervous, are we?

-A little but it's OK.

0:04:020:04:05

Oo-ooh, don't be nervous, darling.

0:04:050:04:07

Be very nervous.

0:04:070:04:08

THEY LAUGH

0:04:080:04:09

Here's your first game.

0:04:090:04:11

Repeat the order in which the colours flash.

0:04:140:04:18

Have a trial run, Debbie.

0:04:180:04:19

So, of those colours, which came up first?

0:04:290:04:31

OK, that was purple, pink, yellow, blue.

0:04:310:04:34

Purple, pink, yellow, blue, you're saying.

0:04:340:04:36

Let's see if that's correct.

0:04:360:04:38

-It is, indeed.

-Yeah!

-Well done.

0:04:400:04:42

No problems with that little starter one.

0:04:420:04:44

-Let's go for the real thing, shall we? Are you happy to do that?

-Yeah.

0:04:440:04:47

Right. Brain, please, let's play the game.

0:04:470:04:50

Remember, Debbie, I can only accept your first answer.

0:04:500:04:54

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

-OK.

0:04:540:04:58

Your game starts now.

0:04:580:04:59

-What do you think?

-That was green, purple, blue, black, red.

0:05:100:05:13

-Green, purple, blue, black, red. Let's see.

-I hope.

0:05:130:05:18

Well done. Yeah, well done.

0:05:210:05:22

Next one, please, then.

0:05:220:05:24

Black, green, pink, black...

0:05:350:05:37

..red, blue?

0:05:380:05:39

Let's look.

0:05:400:05:42

Oh, great.

0:05:420:05:43

Yeah, so, one last one.

0:05:440:05:46

White, green, yellow, pink, red, pink...

0:05:570:06:00

..blue?

0:06:010:06:02

-Absolutely right. Yes, well done.

-Great!

0:06:050:06:07

Can we have a second game, please, Brain?

0:06:070:06:09

Absolutely. You were very good at that, Debbie, weren't you?

0:06:090:06:12

Here's your second game.

0:06:120:06:13

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

0:06:180:06:21

I'll let you have a trial run.

0:06:210:06:23

So, which was the winning line?

0:06:320:06:34

-I think it was the three down the left, so C.

-C.

0:06:340:06:38

That is correct. Do you like playing noughts and crosses?

0:06:400:06:43

No, I've got a friend who always beats me at it

0:06:430:06:45

just cos he knows the formula.

0:06:450:06:47

-You didn't do badly at that, did you?

-I normally get...

0:06:470:06:49

-End in stalemate.

-Let's see if you can beat The Brain.

0:06:490:06:52

OK, thank you.

0:06:520:06:53

Brain, let's play the game.

0:06:530:06:54

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:06:540:06:57

Your game starts now.

0:06:580:06:59

Which one of those four?

0:07:090:07:10

-I think it was B.

-B, you're saying B.

0:07:120:07:15

That is correct. Next one.

0:07:160:07:18

Oh, I missed the beginning.

0:07:290:07:30

Er, D?

0:07:300:07:33

-D, you're saying D.

-Yeah.

0:07:330:07:34

-And that's correct, yeah.

-Oh, great.

-And the last one.

0:07:350:07:38

Oh, that's hard.

0:07:430:07:44

-Which one do you reckon?

-Oh! Maybe B.

0:07:460:07:49

B, you're saying.

0:07:490:07:51

-And that's correct.

-Oh, great!

0:07:520:07:54

Well, you've done incredibly well, Debbie,

0:07:540:07:56

on the first round, in the first Zone.

0:07:560:07:59

-Hasn't she, Brain?

-All hail the female dork, that's what I say.

0:07:590:08:03

You know, John, I love the fact that Debbie

0:08:030:08:05

is a member of an informal knitting group.

0:08:050:08:08

That's when they just sit around in their jimjams

0:08:080:08:10

and drop the occasional stitch.

0:08:100:08:12

They don't care!

0:08:120:08:14

-In a dork-ish way?

-Absolutely.

0:08:140:08:16

Well done, Debbie.

0:08:160:08:17

You added 18 seconds in that Zone.

0:08:170:08:20

This means that in total, so far, the Dorks United

0:08:200:08:23

have 18 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:08:230:08:26

APPLAUSE

0:08:260:08:27

That's a very good start. Lovely to see you, Debbie.

0:08:270:08:30

If you'd rejoin the other dorks now.

0:08:300:08:32

Time to find out now which Zone we're going to be playing next

0:08:320:08:35

and who's going to take it on. So, Brain, a Zone, please.

0:08:350:08:38

It's Language. So, who do you think is best at Language, captain?

0:08:430:08:47

-I think I'll let Mark have a go at this one.

-Mark, OK.

0:08:490:08:51

Come and join us, Mark.

0:08:510:08:53

APPLAUSE

0:08:530:08:54

Good to see you. So, English graduate,

0:08:570:08:59

-so you reckon you're pretty good at the English Language?

-I hope so.

0:08:590:09:02

Although, obviously, I worry that my reputation might precede me there

0:09:020:09:05

and I'll actually be a terrible let down.

0:09:050:09:07

Well, I hear that you're passionate about film, aren't you?

0:09:070:09:10

Yeah, very much so. Bit obsessed with lists

0:09:100:09:12

so last year I made a list of every film that I watched.

0:09:120:09:16

-How many was that?

-It was about 180-something.

0:09:160:09:20

What kind of films do you like best?

0:09:200:09:21

I really love the golden age of Hollywood,

0:09:210:09:24

1930s to 1960 and the film noir era.

0:09:240:09:26

But anything, really. I have quite broad tastes.

0:09:260:09:29

Well, let's see what The Brain has in store for you.

0:09:290:09:32

-Please, may we have the first game, Brain?

-Of course, John. Hello, Mark.

0:09:320:09:38

-Shall we play the first game?

-Yes, please.

0:09:380:09:40

I will give you a word, Mark.

0:09:430:09:45

All you have to do is spell it backwards.

0:09:450:09:48

Let's have a trial run.

0:09:500:09:51

Spell BRAVE.

0:09:520:09:55

So, that's...

0:09:550:09:56

Let's have a look and see if you're right.

0:10:010:10:03

You are indeed, yes.

0:10:030:10:04

Not often as a journalist, or anything,

0:10:040:10:06

you have to write things backwards.

0:10:060:10:07

They don't really like it when you do that.

0:10:070:10:10

So, let's see how you do in the real thing. Off we go.

0:10:100:10:12

Please remember, Mark,

0:10:120:10:14

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

0:10:140:10:17

And to try and put you off a little,

0:10:170:10:19

I shall say these words in my dominant voice.

0:10:190:10:22

That sounds good.

0:10:220:10:24

Your game starts now.

0:10:240:10:25

HOUSE

0:10:280:10:29

Yes, well done.

0:10:360:10:38

Next one.

0:10:380:10:39

-SHADOW.

-Longer word.

0:10:390:10:42

Correct. Well done. Final one coming up.

0:10:500:10:52

PUMPKIN

0:10:540:10:55

PUMPKIN, harder.

0:10:550:10:57

Let's have a look at that. Yeah, well done.

0:11:080:11:11

Maximum points there, another cracking start.

0:11:110:11:13

-Can we have another game, please?

-Yes, of course you can.

0:11:130:11:15

Well done, Mark.

0:11:150:11:17

Here's your second game.

0:11:170:11:18

Mark, use one letter from each column to create a word.

0:11:220:11:27

The clue will help you find it.

0:11:270:11:29

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

0:11:290:11:32

Any ideas?

0:11:370:11:39

Not at all, I'm being distracted by the way I can see H-A-W

0:11:390:11:41

-which makes me want it to be HAWK.

-Yeah.

-But there's no K.

0:11:410:11:44

Not a K in the last one, so, yeah.

0:11:440:11:47

You're looking for another bird.

0:11:470:11:48

Again, I can almost make DOVE.

0:11:520:11:53

-Not quite.

-No.

0:11:530:11:55

This is a really tricky part, isn't it?

0:11:570:11:58

You almost see one but the last bit or the middle bit is not there.

0:11:580:12:02

Yeah.

0:12:020:12:04

Do you want to know the answer to this one?

0:12:040:12:05

-Yeah, I don't think I can get it.

-Let's have the answer.

0:12:050:12:08

-SWAN.

-SWAN.

0:12:090:12:11

S-W-A-N.

0:12:110:12:12

-OK?

-OK.

-Never mind.

-We'll give it a try.

-You'll give it a try?

0:12:130:12:16

Off we go, then. Let's play the game.

0:12:160:12:19

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

0:12:190:12:24

And I can only accept your first answer.

0:12:240:12:27

Your game starts now.

0:12:270:12:29

Music genre is your clue.

0:12:340:12:35

-Again, JAZZ is like the red herring there.

-No, no.

0:12:390:12:41

30 seconds to go.

0:12:450:12:47

You can pass on it.

0:12:470:12:48

Are you going to pass?

0:12:550:12:56

-I'm going to have to pass, yeah.

-You're passing?

0:12:560:12:58

The answer was ROCK.

0:12:580:12:59

Next one.

0:12:590:13:01

Type of meat, here.

0:13:020:13:04

Um...

0:13:110:13:12

Two seconds.

0:13:140:13:15

Time is up, I'm afraid. Time is up.

0:13:150:13:18

So, let's find out what the answer was.

0:13:180:13:21

It was LAMB.

0:13:210:13:22

-L-A-M-B.

-Well, that didn't go so well.

0:13:220:13:25

-That was a difficult one for you, wasn't it, Mark?

-Yeah.

0:13:250:13:28

I saw a lot of nearly answers there.

0:13:280:13:30

Yeah, it can be very deceptive, can't it?

0:13:300:13:32

You really challenged him on that one, Brain, didn't you?

0:13:320:13:35

Absolutely. I was a little harsh, wasn't I, Mark?

0:13:350:13:37

You were a bit harsh, Brain.

0:13:370:13:38

Never mind, you'll soon be sitting next to Debbie where she can be smug.

0:13:380:13:42

Anyway, you added nine seconds in that Zone

0:13:420:13:45

which means the Dorks United have 27 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:13:450:13:50

-Good, well done.

-Thank you.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:13:500:13:52

-Nice to meet you, Mark.

-You, too.

-Rejoin your team, please.

0:13:520:13:55

So, we're halfway through.

0:13:550:13:56

And how are you coping with Brain's games today?

0:13:560:13:59

Better or worse than our team?

0:13:590:14:01

Keep going because the more you play, the better you'll get

0:14:010:14:04

and the more your own brain will benefit from it.

0:14:040:14:07

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

0:14:070:14:11

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:14:110:14:12

So, who do you reckon is going to be best of the two remaining players

0:14:180:14:23

in Orientation?

0:14:230:14:24

-Ben...

-Generally know where I'm going.

-Right.

0:14:240:14:28

-Do it.

-Ben, let's try Orientation.

0:14:280:14:31

APPLAUSE

0:14:310:14:33

-Nice to meet you. You're from Brighton, as well.

-I am, yes.

0:14:340:14:37

-And I hear you play the mandolin.

-Yeah, I play quite a few things.

0:14:370:14:41

Play mandolin and banjo, guitar.

0:14:410:14:43

I love the sound of the mandolin, I'd love to play myself.

0:14:430:14:46

-Have you played with anybody famous?

-I played it with Jarvis Cocker once.

0:14:460:14:49

-Really?

-Yeah. Just for about 10, 15 minutes.

0:14:490:14:52

What, he invited you up to play it?

0:14:520:14:54

He was doing a thing in London, you could just turn up

0:14:540:14:56

and jam with him.

0:14:560:14:58

Which I don't really like doing but I thought, may as well.

0:14:580:15:01

Well, I don't think we've got any music questions in this one.

0:15:010:15:04

-We'll see how you do.

-OK.

-Off we go. And don't forget,

0:15:040:15:07

there are another 18 precious seconds on offer in this Zone.

0:15:070:15:10

That's three seconds for every correct answer.

0:15:100:15:13

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

0:15:130:15:17

-I will, John. Hello, Ben.

-Hiya.

0:15:170:15:20

-You have a look of a young Mick Jagger about you.

-Really?

0:15:200:15:23

-Yes, you do.

-My hairdresser said that!

-Did he?

-Yeah.

0:15:230:15:26

Here's your first game.

0:15:270:15:30

Tell me whether the hands are left or right.

0:15:320:15:35

You can warm up by having a trial run.

0:15:350:15:37

-OK, so...

-It's good to use your own hands, I think.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:15:380:15:41

So number one is...

0:15:410:15:44

-left hand.

-Mm.

0:15:440:15:45

Number two is a right hand.

0:15:450:15:47

Number three is a right hand as well.

0:15:490:15:51

So, you're saying left, right, right.

0:15:510:15:54

Left, right, right. Let's have a look to see if that's correct.

0:15:540:15:57

It is, indeed. Well done. So...a good start.

0:15:570:16:00

So let's get going with the real thing, please, Brain.

0:16:000:16:03

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

0:16:030:16:07

-Please remember I can only accept your first answer.

-OK.

0:16:070:16:11

Your game starts now.

0:16:120:16:15

That's left, left...

0:16:150:16:18

-..left.

-Left, left, left, you say?

0:16:200:16:23

You're correct. On to the next one.

0:16:230:16:25

That's right.

0:16:260:16:29

Left.

0:16:290:16:30

-Left.

-Right, left, left, you say?

0:16:320:16:34

Oh, no, it's not. That's right.

0:16:340:16:37

-Next one.

-Sorry.

-You've got 20 seconds left.

0:16:370:16:40

That's right.

0:16:400:16:41

No! Ah, it's left.

0:16:410:16:43

Left. Right.

0:16:430:16:45

-I have to accept your first answer, I'm afraid.

-Aw, yeah.

0:16:470:16:49

-The first word you say, so I'm sorry about that.

-Yeah.

0:16:490:16:51

It was left, left and right. Never mind.

0:16:510:16:54

Let's press on. I'm sure you're going to do much better in game two.

0:16:540:16:58

Yes, Ben. Let's see if we can change direction

0:16:580:17:00

for you, shall we, my darling?

0:17:000:17:02

-Yeah, please.

-Here's your second game.

-Thanks.

0:17:020:17:06

Follow the car's journey and identify which direction

0:17:070:17:11

it ends up facing.

0:17:110:17:13

Here's a trial run.

0:17:130:17:15

U-turn.

0:17:200:17:22

Turn right.

0:17:230:17:25

Turn left.

0:17:250:17:27

Which direction...does it end up?

0:17:270:17:29

I think it's going south.

0:17:290:17:31

-You think south?

-Yeah.

-Let's see if you're correct.

0:17:310:17:35

You are. Yeah.

0:17:350:17:37

-Shall we press on with Sat Nav? Are you happy to do that?

-Yeah.

0:17:370:17:40

Right. OK, Brain. Game, please.

0:17:400:17:41

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:17:410:17:45

Your game starts now.

0:17:450:17:48

Turn right.

0:17:500:17:51

U-turn.

0:17:530:17:54

Turn right.

0:17:540:17:57

Which direction now?

0:17:570:17:58

-I think he's going north.

-North? OK. Let's have a look.

0:17:580:18:01

Yeah, you're right. Next one.

0:18:030:18:04

Turn right.

0:18:080:18:10

Turn right.

0:18:100:18:12

U-turn.

0:18:120:18:13

U-turn.

0:18:130:18:15

-So, eventually, where is it ending up?

-That'll be going south now.

0:18:150:18:18

-South again, you think?

-Yep.

0:18:180:18:20

Yeah, good. One last one.

0:18:230:18:25

Turn right.

0:18:280:18:29

Turn left.

0:18:300:18:32

Turn right.

0:18:320:18:34

Turn right.

0:18:340:18:36

-I think that's going south again.

-South again, your final direction,

0:18:390:18:43

you think? Let's see if that's correct.

0:18:430:18:45

It is. South. No problems there with your Sat Nav!

0:18:450:18:48

You recovered some very valuable seconds into your brain bank.

0:18:480:18:51

-So, Brain, how do you think Ben did?

-Very well, indeed.

0:18:510:18:55

He is as bright as his T-shirt, isn't he?

0:18:550:18:58

Ben, you added 12 seconds in that zone,

0:18:580:19:01

which means Dorks United have 39 seconds in their brain bank.

0:19:010:19:06

-APPLAUSE

-OK, Ben, and, Dan,

0:19:060:19:08

you're the final player, so why don't you change places with Ben,

0:19:080:19:12

and we'll find out which zone you'll be playing in?

0:19:120:19:14

APPLAUSE

0:19:140:19:16

-You're a journalist, aren't you?

-Mm.

0:19:170:19:19

Yeah, so what kind of journalism do you do?

0:19:190:19:22

It's quite niche. I write about cranes.

0:19:220:19:25

That sounds a dorkish thing to do, actually.

0:19:250:19:27

Well, I can't comment on that in case my employers are watching,

0:19:270:19:30

but, yeah.

0:19:300:19:31

-So there is a cranes magazine, is there?

-Yeah.

0:19:310:19:35

It's about cranes and construction projects.

0:19:350:19:37

Do you think you'll be OK in one of these zones coming up,

0:19:370:19:40

because we've got Logic, Observation and Multitasking left?

0:19:400:19:44

-Which would you like?

-I think I'm fairly average at all of them.

0:19:440:19:49

-So it depends which games I get, but, uh...yeah.

-OK.

0:19:490:19:53

Let's find out which Zone Brain has chosen for you.

0:19:530:19:56

It's Logic. How do you feel about that, then?

0:20:000:20:04

Some areas are OK, some not so much. We'll see what comes up.

0:20:040:20:07

See what happens.

0:20:070:20:08

-See what devious logic the Brain has in store for you.

-Yeah.

0:20:080:20:12

-Can we play the first game, please?

-Absolutely. Hello, Captain Dan.

0:20:120:20:15

-Hello...Brain.

-Yes, that's my name. Don't wear it out.

0:20:150:20:20

Your first game is this.

0:20:200:20:21

Three darts will be thrown.

0:20:260:20:28

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

0:20:280:20:32

Have yourself a trial run.

0:20:320:20:34

14.

0:20:370:20:38

Double 11.

0:20:380:20:39

9.

0:20:390:20:41

So.

0:20:410:20:42

Double 11, 14 and 9.

0:20:430:20:44

Uh, so that will be...

0:20:470:20:51

454.

0:20:510:20:52

454, you say? Let's have a look.

0:20:530:20:56

-Oh.

-456. Almost correct.

0:20:570:21:01

-Game, please, Brain.

-My little dorky darling,

0:21:010:21:03

you have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:21:030:21:07

Please remember, I will only accept your first answer.

0:21:070:21:10

Your game starts now.

0:21:120:21:14

7.

0:21:160:21:17

16.

0:21:170:21:18

18.

0:21:180:21:19

-460.

-460, you're saying?

0:21:200:21:24

You're absolutely right. Next one, please.

0:21:240:21:27

13.

0:21:280:21:29

Double 17.

0:21:290:21:30

15.

0:21:300:21:32

-398.

-398.

0:21:360:21:39

398. Last one coming up. 20 seconds left.

0:21:390:21:41

12.

0:21:410:21:42

Triple 9.

0:21:420:21:44

Double 19.

0:21:440:21:45

Ten seconds.

0:21:500:21:52

-321.

-321, you're saying.

0:21:530:21:56

Let's see if that's correct.

0:21:560:21:58

It is. You make a very good darts scorer.

0:21:580:22:01

-Yeah, not so much a player, but the scoring, apparently, I can do.

-Yeah.

0:22:010:22:05

Well done. What do you think, Brain?

0:22:050:22:07

He's picking up very nicely, isn't he?

0:22:070:22:09

Which leads me to my second game, Dan.

0:22:090:22:11

You must pick up the sticks in the correct order from top to bottom.

0:22:150:22:19

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

0:22:190:22:22

From top to bottom.

0:22:250:22:26

OK, so that would be white,

0:22:260:22:30

yellow,

0:22:300:22:31

blue,

0:22:310:22:33

black, red, green.

0:22:330:22:34

JOHN REPEATS THE ORDER

0:22:340:22:37

Let's see if that's correct.

0:22:370:22:40

Yes. It is correct. Well done. Good.

0:22:400:22:43

-Are you happy to play now?

-Yeah, let's give it a go.

0:22:430:22:46

Here we go with this version.

0:22:460:22:48

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:22:480:22:51

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:22:510:22:54

Your game starts now.

0:22:560:22:59

Red, blue,

0:23:020:23:04

green, yellow,

0:23:040:23:06

white, black.

0:23:060:23:07

JOHN REPEATS THE ORDER

0:23:070:23:10

Yes. Well done. On to the next one.

0:23:100:23:13

Red, blue,

0:23:130:23:15

black, yellow,

0:23:150:23:16

white, green.

0:23:160:23:17

Yeah, that's right. And we've got 20 seconds left.

0:23:210:23:25

Blue, red,

0:23:250:23:27

white, yellow,

0:23:270:23:28

green, black.

0:23:280:23:30

Let's see if that's correct.

0:23:300:23:31

It certainly is. That's well done.

0:23:330:23:35

Brain, he's pretty good at darts and old playground games.

0:23:350:23:39

You misjudged him.

0:23:390:23:40

Absolutely. A full house there, Dan.

0:23:400:23:43

You got 18 seconds in that Zone.

0:23:430:23:46

This means, Dorks United,

0:23:460:23:48

you have finished with a grand total of 57 seconds in your Brain Bank!

0:23:480:23:53

-APPLAUSE

-That is a formidable total.

0:23:530:23:55

So well done, Dan. Well done, other Dorks.

0:23:550:23:57

Rejoin your team, please.

0:23:570:23:59

Well, we've finished the individual Zones,

0:23:590:24:01

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

0:24:010:24:04

one last time and walk off with a cash prize in today's Final.

0:24:040:24:09

Well, Dorks United, you've 57 seconds in your Brain Bank

0:24:130:24:17

to answer eight questions correctly.

0:24:170:24:20

Achieve that and you'll win our jackpot of £3,000.

0:24:200:24:23

If you don't, there's still a chance to take some money home with you,

0:24:230:24:26

because you have two extra minutes in which to answer,

0:24:260:24:29

but the longer you take, the less you win

0:24:290:24:31

because as the time counts down, so does the money.

0:24:310:24:34

Take too long and you'll be leaving us empty-handed.

0:24:340:24:37

So, Dan, you've chosen the order in which the team are going to play.

0:24:380:24:41

What was your thinking behind that?

0:24:410:24:43

Well, Debbie had a very good performance in the earlier round.

0:24:430:24:47

So we're hoping she'll give us a solid start.

0:24:470:24:50

Then we have Mark and Ben and as team captain,

0:24:500:24:53

I thought I should take on the stressful role

0:24:530:24:55

of potentially finishing...

0:24:550:24:57

The anchor at the end of the line.

0:24:570:24:59

Potentially, or being the person who lets all the time slip away,

0:24:590:25:02

so we'll see.

0:25:020:25:04

OK. It's time to get serious.

0:25:040:25:06

Let's play today's Final.

0:25:060:25:08

Over to you, Brain.

0:25:100:25:11

Dorks United, you will only face questions from the games

0:25:110:25:14

you've already seen today,

0:25:140:25:16

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

0:25:160:25:20

Beat me if you can.

0:25:200:25:22

So that's her challenge.

0:25:220:25:23

Can you beat the Brain?

0:25:230:25:25

As usual, we'll start with the player on the left,

0:25:250:25:27

that's you, Debbie.

0:25:270:25:29

And once you've answered two correct questions,

0:25:290:25:31

we move on to Mark and then on down the line.

0:25:310:25:34

OK, good luck, everybody.

0:25:340:25:36

Let's start the game.

0:25:360:25:38

Left or right hands?

0:25:410:25:43

Right, left, left.

0:25:430:25:45

Yes.

0:25:470:25:49

MUSICAL NOTES PLAY

0:25:490:25:52

Left or right hands?

0:26:380:26:39

Right...

0:26:410:26:42

Right, right.

0:26:420:26:45

Correct. Dan.

Stop the clock.

0:27:010:27:03

Well, you didn't quite beat the jackpot,

0:27:030:27:05

but you have won £2,400.

0:27:050:27:08

Well done, Dorks!

0:27:080:27:10

Dorkie high-fives. Dorkie high-fives!

0:27:110:27:15

Very well done, indeed. A fantastic game played there.

0:27:150:27:18

And what do you think, Brain? You've been beaten.

0:27:180:27:21

Well, I've been well and truly dorked, haven't I?

0:27:210:27:24

If I had teeth, I'd be gritting them and saying, "Congratulations(!)"

0:27:240:27:27

Well, thank you all for watching at home.

0:27:270:27:29

I hope you enjoyed playing along.

0:27:290:27:31

-Now it's goodbye from Dorks United...

-Bye!

-Goodbye.

0:27:310:27:34

-..bye from the Brain...

-Goodbye.

0:27:340:27:36

..and it's bye from me as well. See you soon.

0:27:360:27:39

Don't go just yet.

0:27:410:27:43

Here are the answers to the questions I gave you at the start of the show.

0:27:430:27:48

Are they left or right hands?

0:27:480:27:50

The answer is...

0:27:530:27:54

right, right, left.

0:27:540:27:56

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.

Four friends who define themselves proudly as 'dorkes' pit their wits against the all-knowing Brain in the hope of winning £3,000.
