Hello, it's me, the friendly Brain.

0:00:020:00:05

Sharp wits and agile minds are what our team of four contestants

0:00:050:00:08

will need today.

0:00:080:00:10

Have a go at these examples of the type of games the team might face.

0:00:100:00:14

Which of the four wheels on the right matches the one on the left?

0:00:160:00:20

And try this one.

0:00:260:00:27

Name the missing winners and losers.

0:00:290:00:31

Think you're right? I'll give you the answers at the end of the show.

0:00:350:00:39

Now watch whether our team today can get the questions right

0:00:390:00:42

as they try to Beat The Brain!

0:00:420:00:44

Please welcome the man who's got all the answers, John Craven.

0:01:030:01:08

Hello, and thank you for joining us on Beat The Brain.

0:01:080:01:11

Play along with our games today

0:01:110:01:13

and your mind will benefit from a session in the mental gym.

0:01:130:01:17

But just like going to a real gym, you might feel a bit battered

0:01:170:01:19

and bruised afterwards.

0:01:190:01:21

So, are you going to be easy on us today, Brain?

0:01:210:01:24

Of course not! May I say, you're looking wonderful today, John.

0:01:240:01:27

You know, I want to lock you up in a brain cell

0:01:270:01:30

and keep you there for ever.

0:01:300:01:32

I hope you're going to be as nice to our team. Let's meet them.

0:01:320:01:35

Introduce yourselves.

0:01:350:01:36

I'm Jane and I run an all-female comedy club.

0:01:360:01:39

I'm Kerrie and I'm at university doing a Master's in social work.

0:01:390:01:42

I'm Indu and I work as a bank IT specialist.

0:01:420:01:45

I'm Sam, I'm the team captain, and I'm a financial research analyst.

0:01:450:01:48

APPLAUSE

0:01:480:01:50

So, welcome everybody,

0:01:500:01:51

and what have you decided to call your team?

0:01:510:01:54

-We are Southville Running Minds.

-Why is that?

0:01:540:01:56

We are from Southville Running Club,

0:01:560:01:58

which is a running club from Bristol.

0:01:580:02:01

Ah, right. Are they long distance runners or what?

0:02:010:02:04

All kinds of distances. I've done a few half marathons.

0:02:040:02:07

Some people have done longer distances.

0:02:070:02:09

Well, you all look pretty fit, and I hope you're in for a good,

0:02:090:02:12

long run today, OK? Right. So, here's how we play.

0:02:120:02:16

The show's brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:160:02:19

The Brain will select four of these six Zones for you to play today,

0:02:260:02:30

and Sam, as captain, you must nominate which team member

0:02:300:02:33

you think will perform best in each zone.

0:02:330:02:36

You're playing for time instead of points,

0:02:360:02:38

with every correct answer adding three seconds to your total,

0:02:380:02:42

to what we call your Brain Bank,

0:02:420:02:44

and the more time you build up,

0:02:440:02:45

the more chance you have of beating the Brain and today's final,

0:02:450:02:49

and walking away with our jackpot.

0:02:490:02:50

-So, Southville Running Minds, are you ready to play?

-We are.

-Yeah.

0:02:520:02:56

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

0:02:560:03:00

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:03:000:03:02

Sam, who are you going to choose to join me in the Orientation Zone?

0:03:080:03:12

I believe this is one of Indu's stronger subjects.

0:03:120:03:15

I think he knows exactly where he is. I think he'll do very well.

0:03:150:03:18

Right. Your first away then, Indu.

0:03:180:03:20

Come and join me in the Orientation Zone.

0:03:200:03:22

APPLAUSE

0:03:220:03:23

-Good to see you.

-Good to see you.

0:03:250:03:27

-Are you a long distance runner, then?

-I'm a medium distance runner.

0:03:270:03:30

I do a half marathons, long distance.

0:03:300:03:33

Full marathons are too much for me.

0:03:330:03:34

Uh-huh. And what got you into running?

0:03:340:03:37

My landlord was telling me, "If you don't start running, I'm going

0:03:370:03:40

-"to kick you out." So, I thought, "OK, let's do it!"

-Why was that?

0:03:400:03:43

He was a sort of runner and he used to do ultra marathons,

0:03:430:03:47

and I was the only guy in his friend circle who used to drink beer

0:03:470:03:51

-while they are running, so I thought, "OK."

-Right, well,

0:03:510:03:53

let's play, and you'll play two games in this Zone.

0:03:530:03:57

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each.

0:03:570:04:01

So, Brain, what's the first game?

0:04:010:04:03

BRAIN CHUCKLES

0:04:030:04:04

-Hello, Indu.

-Hello.

-So, you like running, yes?

-Oh, yeah.

0:04:040:04:07

I don't run, obviously.

0:04:070:04:09

Sometimes John puts me in a backpack and takes me for a jog.

0:04:090:04:12

JOHN LAUGHS

0:04:120:04:14

Anyway, let's get on with your first game. Ooh, I like your glasses.

0:04:140:04:17

LAUGHTER

0:04:170:04:18

-Thank you.

-Here's your first game.

0:04:180:04:20

Indu, what is the real time? To help you out, have a trial run.

0:04:230:04:28

So, there's a mirror image. What's the real time?

0:04:300:04:33

What do you reckon?

0:04:380:04:39

It's ten past...

0:04:420:04:43

Ten past...?

0:04:450:04:46

-It's ten past nine.

-Ten past nine, you think.

0:04:480:04:50

Let's see if you're correct, Indu.

0:04:500:04:52

And you are indeed. Well done.

0:04:530:04:56

So, you've got the hang of this now.

0:04:560:04:58

Because you're against the clock, you're going

0:04:580:05:00

-to have to be much quicker.

-Yes.

-So, Brain, over to you.

0:05:000:05:03

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

0:05:030:05:07

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:05:070:05:10

Your game starts now.

0:05:100:05:12

What's the real time?

0:05:140:05:15

-It's half nine.

-Half past nine? You correct?

0:05:190:05:22

Yes, you are. Next one.

0:05:220:05:23

What's the real time?

0:05:250:05:26

-30 seconds left.

-It's five past two.

0:05:280:05:31

Five past two? It is indeed.

0:05:310:05:33

And the third one. You've got 23 seconds left.

0:05:330:05:36

It's 3:55.

0:05:360:05:38

3:55, you're saying?

0:05:380:05:41

Yes indeed. That's correct, isn't it? Well done.

0:05:430:05:45

APPLAUSE

0:05:450:05:46

So, that is very good.

0:05:480:05:49

Right, Brain, what's the next game, please, game two?

0:05:490:05:52

I thought that was a little too easy for Indu.

0:05:520:05:55

Let's try something a little more difficult. Ah, yes, here's one.

0:05:550:05:58

The second game is...

0:05:580:06:00

Which wheel matches the one on the left?

0:06:030:06:05

To get your eye in, Indu, have a trial run.

0:06:050:06:08

So, which of the four matches the one on the left?

0:06:160:06:19

C.

0:06:250:06:26

C? You're absolutely correct.

0:06:290:06:31

Some people find that very difficult, that one,

0:06:310:06:33

but you obviously didn't, so far, anyway. Off we go.

0:06:330:06:36

Can we have the game, please, Brain?

0:06:360:06:38

Indu, you have a maximum of 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:06:380:06:42

Your game starts now.

0:06:420:06:44

Which matches the one on the left?

0:06:470:06:50

A.

0:06:530:06:55

-Option A.

-That's correct.

0:06:550:06:56

Next one.

0:06:560:06:57

30 seconds left.

0:06:590:07:00

-Which one, you think?

-C.

0:07:050:07:07

C? Incorrect.

0:07:070:07:08

What's this one? 15 seconds to go.

0:07:140:07:15

B.

0:07:170:07:18

B, you're saying.

0:07:180:07:20

That is correct.

0:07:200:07:22

Not bad there, Brain.

0:07:220:07:24

Indu, you almost got a full house, but not quite.

0:07:240:07:27

You added 15 seconds in that Zone. This means, in total,

0:07:270:07:32

Southville Running Minds have 15 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:07:320:07:35

-Well done, Indu.

-Thanks a lot.

-And rejoin your team.

0:07:370:07:40

So, time to find out which Zone we're going to next

0:07:410:07:44

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

0:07:440:07:47

Sam, who are you going to nominate to be a multi-tasker?

0:07:530:07:57

Well, after getting five out of six,

0:07:570:07:59

I'm starting to feel it's a shame we can't have Indu twice,

0:07:590:08:01

but I know that Jane does, like, a million things at once

0:08:010:08:05

-all the time, and I know she's really good at multi-tasking.

-OK.

0:08:050:08:08

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

0:08:080:08:10

APPLAUSE

0:08:100:08:11

-Hi, John.

-How do you feel about being nominated as a multi-tasker?

0:08:140:08:17

I don't know, let's see how it goes.

0:08:170:08:19

SHE LAUGHS

0:08:190:08:20

-When it comes to running... You went running naked.

-I did.

0:08:200:08:25

Well, I believe in accepting any challenge that comes my way, and I

0:08:250:08:30

heard about this race in London, at the London Zoo, to do a naked

0:08:300:08:34

-run, and I thought, "Well, why not?"

-You weren't on your own?

0:08:340:08:37

I wasn't on my own. It was an organised event.

0:08:370:08:40

It was in the evening, so the zoo was closed to the public,

0:08:400:08:42

but there were several hundred of us and we all stripped down,

0:08:420:08:45

and we just had our trainers on and we all stripped down.

0:08:450:08:48

Lots of people had body paint on and some people had masks.

0:08:480:08:51

-What did you have on?

-I just had a mask on to protect my dignity.

0:08:510:08:55

It was really fun, actually.

0:08:550:08:56

It was really liberating and really confidence-boosting.

0:08:560:08:59

-Would you do it again?

-Maybe!

0:08:590:09:01

THEY LAUGH

0:09:010:09:03

-Maybe.

-Well, let's see how you are at multi-tasking.

0:09:030:09:06

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

0:09:060:09:10

-Of course! Hello, Jane.

-Hello!

-I'm naked all the time, of course.

0:09:100:09:15

-Take a gander at my frontal lobe.

-Beautiful.

-Thank you!

0:09:150:09:18

Anyway, let's get on, shall we? This is your first game.

0:09:180:09:22

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

0:09:240:09:29

To give you a practice, Jane, have a little trail run.

0:09:290:09:32

BELL CLANGS

0:09:320:09:35

Empty bus apart from the driver.

0:09:350:09:36

How many are left on the bus now?

0:09:440:09:45

I completely messed it up! Um... Ah!

0:09:450:09:49

-Three?

-Let's see if that's correct.

0:09:490:09:52

It was four. So, not a bad guess.

0:09:520:09:55

-But not the right one.

-No.

0:09:550:09:57

-You happy to play?

-OK.

-Right. Off we go.

0:09:570:10:00

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:10:000:10:03

Your game starts now.

0:10:030:10:05

BELL CLANGS

0:10:050:10:06

-What do you reckon there?

-Six?

0:10:120:10:14

Six?

0:10:140:10:16

Oh, incorrect. Sorry.

0:10:160:10:19

Next game, please, Brain.

0:10:190:10:20

BELL CLANGS

0:10:220:10:23

-How many left there?

-Seven?

0:10:320:10:35

Seven? Let's see if that's right.

0:10:350:10:37

Oh, my goodness!

0:10:370:10:39

JOHN CHUCKLES

0:10:390:10:40

-More people got on after...

-I'm so sorry, team.

0:10:400:10:42

And the third one.

0:10:420:10:44

BELL CLANGS

0:10:440:10:45

-Two?

-Two?

0:10:550:10:57

Let's see if that's correct.

0:10:570:10:59

-Nobody left on the bus, then.

-Oh, my word.

-It is a hard one, that one.

0:10:590:11:04

What about the rest of the team? Anybody get those right?

0:11:040:11:07

-The first one, but those last two were really hard.

-Really quick.

0:11:070:11:10

-It's quick, yeah.

-OK. Right. Brain, game two, please.

0:11:100:11:15

Of course, John.

0:11:150:11:16

-I'm sorry, I was rather evil then, wasn't I, Jane?

-Yes!

0:11:160:11:20

I'm going to carry on being that way. Ooh!

0:11:200:11:23

Perhaps you'd like a little rest. Here's your second game.

0:11:230:11:26

When the number of sheep matches the number I say,

0:11:290:11:33

add that number to the total.

0:11:330:11:35

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

0:11:350:11:38

One.

0:11:430:11:44

Four. Three.

0:11:440:11:45

One. Two.

0:11:450:11:47

Three. Four.

0:11:470:11:48

Two. Two.

0:11:480:11:50

Two.

0:11:500:11:51

-Nine.

-Nine, you're saying.

0:11:540:11:55

And you're perfectly correct there.

0:11:570:11:58

THEY LAUGH

0:11:580:11:59

Right. Please, may we play the game, Brain?

0:11:590:12:03

Your game starts now.

0:12:030:12:04

Two. Three.

0:12:090:12:10

Two. Four.

0:12:100:12:12

One. Four.

0:12:120:12:14

Three. One.

0:12:140:12:15

Three. One.

0:12:150:12:17

11.

0:12:190:12:20

Yep, 11. Well done. Yeah.

0:12:210:12:24

Game two now.

0:12:240:12:25

Four. Two.

0:12:300:12:32

Four. Three.

0:12:320:12:33

One. Four.

0:12:330:12:34

Three. Two.

0:12:340:12:36

Three. Four.

0:12:360:12:38

14?

0:12:400:12:41

Yep. Well done. Good. Right.

0:12:420:12:45

And now here comes the third game.

0:12:450:12:47

Four. One.

0:12:510:12:52

Three. Four.

0:12:520:12:53

One. Four.

0:12:530:12:55

Four. One.

0:12:550:12:56

Two. Two.

0:12:560:12:58

-16.

-16.

0:13:000:13:02

Yes! Well, you're certainly good at that type of multi-taking.

0:13:030:13:06

JOHN AND JANE LAUGH

0:13:060:13:08

Brain, what do you make of that?

0:13:080:13:09

I thought she did very well for that second game.

0:13:090:13:12

I'm sure Martin Kemp would be very proud of you.

0:13:120:13:15

That's her celeb crush, John. I don't know why it isn't you.

0:13:150:13:18

Anyway, Jane, you added nine seconds in that Zone.

0:13:180:13:22

This means, in total,

0:13:220:13:24

Southville Running Minds now have 24 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:13:240:13:28

Well, that is pretty good! Lovely to meet you. Rejoin your team.

0:13:280:13:32

So, how are you getting on at home? Don't worry if you're struggling.

0:13:330:13:36

We have a saying on this show that it's different

0:13:360:13:38

brains for different games.

0:13:380:13:40

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

0:13:400:13:44

So, Brain, the Zone please.

0:13:440:13:46

So, Sam, who is going to be playing against The Brain

0:13:520:13:55

when it comes to memory?

0:13:550:13:57

Well, it definitely won't be me, because I struggle to remember my

0:13:570:14:00

own name, let alone other people's,

0:14:000:14:02

and I think this is definitely going to be Kerrie.

0:14:020:14:04

Kerrie, come and join me, please.

0:14:040:14:06

APPLAUSE

0:14:060:14:07

What kind of running do you like best, then?

0:14:100:14:12

Well, I'm quite new to the club, only started end of last year,

0:14:120:14:16

so at the moment I'm just working up towards doing a half

0:14:160:14:18

marathon in September.

0:14:180:14:20

-And you're also doing your Master's at the same time.

-Yes.

0:14:200:14:23

What would you like to do eventually?

0:14:230:14:24

I'm really interested in outdoor sports

0:14:240:14:26

and how it can help disengaged youth feel re-confident and re-motivated,

0:14:260:14:31

so I want to open my own outdoor centre for sort of at-risk youth.

0:14:310:14:34

-Well, that's a big ambition, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:14:340:14:37

Do you think it does make a difference if people, you know,

0:14:370:14:39

are out of touch with the kind of reality of life, really,

0:14:390:14:43

it brings them back again?

0:14:430:14:44

Yeah, definitely, cos I think there's all sorts of ways

0:14:440:14:47

they can be re-engaged, get a bit better self esteem,

0:14:470:14:49

they're going to feel more proud of themselves,

0:14:490:14:51

have more respect for them and other people. I think it helps.

0:14:510:14:54

Well, all the very best with that. A great ambition.

0:14:540:14:56

And let's see how you do in the Memory Zone.

0:14:560:14:59

Brain, please reveal which game Kerrie will be playing first.

0:14:590:15:03

-Of course, John. Hello, Kerrie.

-Hi!

-Here's your first game.

0:15:030:15:06

Kerrie, remember where the pictures were once they have disappeared.

0:15:090:15:14

You can warm up by having a trial run.

0:15:140:15:16

Where are the strawberries?

0:15:220:15:24

-One and three.

-One and three.

0:15:250:15:28

Yep. One and three.

0:15:300:15:32

Right, so you got the hang of that pretty quickly, didn't you?

0:15:320:15:35

-I imagine it's going to get harder, though.

-Well, Brain, over to you.

0:15:350:15:38

Your game starts now.

0:15:380:15:40

-Memorise them.

-Pipes.

-Pipe, hat.

0:15:420:15:44

Sherlock Holmes things.

0:15:440:15:46

-Where are the pipes?

-Two and six.

0:15:460:15:49

Two and six.

0:15:490:15:51

Absolutely correct. Well done. Next one, please.

0:15:530:15:57

-Just trying to remember the pattern.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:16:010:16:03

-Where are the red slippers.

-Nine, five and seven.

0:16:030:16:06

Nine, five and seven.

0:16:080:16:09

Well done! Brilliant, yeah! So, one more.

0:16:120:16:15

Where are the doughnuts?

0:16:220:16:25

Ooh. Six...

0:16:250:16:27

Oh, God.

0:16:270:16:28

Six, 11, eight and four?

0:16:280:16:30

Six... Ah. No. One, seven... No, no.

0:16:320:16:35

But you did very well on the first two, didn't you?

0:16:350:16:38

I was trying to remember the dummy.

0:16:380:16:39

-So, Brain, let's have game two, please.

-Absolutely.

0:16:390:16:42

Are you good at remembering names, Kerrie?

0:16:420:16:45

I am quite good at names.

0:16:450:16:47

Good. Most actors, you know, just call everybody "darling".

0:16:470:16:50

JOHN AND KERRIE CHUCKLE

0:16:500:16:51

Here's your second game.

0:16:510:16:52

You will see four named pictures. The pictures will disappear.

0:16:540:16:59

One will come back. Tell us what its name is.

0:16:590:17:02

To help you out, have a trial run.

0:17:020:17:04

That's Betty. Is it?

0:17:130:17:16

That is Betty the turkey.

0:17:160:17:18

Isn't it?

0:17:180:17:19

THEY LAUGH

0:17:190:17:20

You've got the hang of that one.

0:17:200:17:22

Strange names for the different creatures, but there we go.

0:17:220:17:24

That's what you have to remember,

0:17:240:17:26

the name that's attached to the object or creature. Right.

0:17:260:17:28

-Brain, off we go, please.

-Your game starts now.

0:17:280:17:32

SHE MUTTERS INAUDIBLY

0:17:350:17:36

-That was Piglet.

-Piglet the teapot. Let's see if that's correct.

0:17:390:17:43

And it is. Well done. On to the next one.

0:17:430:17:46

Peter the hamster, Michael the rabbit, Hook and Wendy.

0:17:490:17:54

-Hook.

-Hook...

0:17:540:17:56

is the tortoise. Absolutely correct. Yeah. Well done.

0:17:560:17:59

One last one.

0:17:590:18:00

Robbie, Gary, Mark, Howard.

0:18:020:18:05

-That was Mark.

-That was Mark.

0:18:090:18:12

Mark with the right answer.

0:18:120:18:13

And it was indeed. Well done! Maximum on that one, yeah.

0:18:130:18:17

-Brain, what did you think?

-I thought she was wonderful. My kind of woman.

0:18:170:18:20

Kerrie, you added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:18:200:18:23

This means, in total,

0:18:230:18:25

Southville Running Minds have 39 seconds in the Brain Bank.

0:18:250:18:29

That's very good indeed!

0:18:290:18:31

So, Sam, you're our final player, so why don't you swap places now

0:18:310:18:35

with Kerrie and we'll find out which Zone you'll be playing.

0:18:350:18:38

APPLAUSE

0:18:380:18:40

Hello, Sam.

0:18:420:18:43

Well, I think you've chosen well so far with who you've delegated,

0:18:430:18:46

haven't you? And there are three Zones left now.

0:18:460:18:49

There's Logic, Language and Observation.

0:18:490:18:52

-So, which would you like?

-I think logic is my strongest area.

-Right.

0:18:520:18:56

Well, we'll wait and see what comes up in a moment,

0:18:560:18:58

but first of all, tell me a little bit more about yourself.

0:18:580:19:01

How did you get involved with running?

0:19:010:19:02

I started a new job, I started to feel a lot better about myself

0:19:020:19:05

and I started to feel like I should just get fit again,

0:19:050:19:08

and about a year after I started running,

0:19:080:19:11

I joined the running club and I've never looked back, really.

0:19:110:19:14

It's made me a lot stronger and fitter and able to feel a lot

0:19:140:19:19

better about myself than I would have felt running alone.

0:19:190:19:22

Great. Do you have any big ambitions?

0:19:220:19:25

Yes, my ultimate running ambition is to run a marathon on every

0:19:250:19:28

-continent, including the North Pole.

-Have you achieved any of it so far?

0:19:280:19:32

-Well, I've done Europe.

-Uh-huh.

0:19:320:19:34

Which continent comes next, do you reckon?

0:19:340:19:36

I think North America, because my sister lives in Toronto

0:19:360:19:38

-and I'd quite like to do the Toronto Marathon.

-Well, very best of luck.

0:19:380:19:42

Let's find out which Zone you're going to be facing. Brain?

0:19:420:19:45

The Zone, please.

0:19:450:19:47

-Well, there we are. That's what you wanted, isn't it?

-Score.

-Yeah.

0:19:510:19:54

-So, let's find out if your dream is going to come true.

-Hello, Sam.

0:19:540:19:59

-Hello.

-This is your first game.

0:19:590:20:01

Three darts will be thrown.

0:20:040:20:07

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

0:20:070:20:11

Have yourself a trial run.

0:20:110:20:14

Eight.

0:20:140:20:15

Double six.

0:20:150:20:16

18.

0:20:160:20:17

So, that would be eight, 20, 38.

0:20:170:20:19

-463.

-463.

0:20:230:20:25

-Well done. You a darts player?

-No, like watching it on TV, though.

0:20:270:20:31

I wonder if you're going to get 180. We'll see. Off we go, Brain.

0:20:310:20:35

You have 45 seconds to answer these questions correctly, Sam.

0:20:350:20:39

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:20:390:20:43

Your game starts now.

0:20:430:20:45

Eight.

0:20:460:20:47

11.

0:20:470:20:48

13.

0:20:480:20:49

HE COUNTS QUIETLY

0:20:510:20:52

-469.

-469?

0:20:520:20:55

Absolutely correct. You ARE a darts player.

0:20:550:20:58

Double 16.

0:20:580:20:59

14.

0:20:590:21:00

12.

0:21:000:21:02

30 seconds to go.

0:21:020:21:03

HE COUNTS QUIETLY

0:21:040:21:05

-411.

-411.

0:21:050:21:08

Absolutely right!

0:21:090:21:10

17.

0:21:100:21:12

Double nine.

0:21:120:21:13

Triple 13.

0:21:130:21:14

HE COUNTS QUIETLY

0:21:160:21:17

74...

0:21:190:21:20

-337.

-337.

0:21:220:21:26

337 is correct. Well done. Yeah.

0:21:260:21:31

Perhaps I could've been a darts player

0:21:310:21:33

if my hand-eye coordination wasn't absolutely terrible.

0:21:330:21:36

-So, Brain, on to game two, please.

-Mm, he's good! Calm and good.

0:21:360:21:41

Here's your second game.

0:21:410:21:43

Rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper and paper beats rock.

0:21:450:21:49

All you need to do is identify all three missing items.

0:21:490:21:54

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

0:21:540:21:57

So, that's...

0:21:590:22:00

So, scissors beats paper, which is beaten by rock,

0:22:020:22:07

and rock beats scissors, so it's scissors, scissors, rock.

0:22:070:22:10

Scissors, scissors, rock.

0:22:100:22:12

Absolutely correct. You confident?

0:22:120:22:14

-Yeah, feeling confident.

-Jolly good. Brain, start the game.

0:22:140:22:17

Sam, you have a maximum of 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:22:170:22:22

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:22:220:22:25

Your game starts now.

0:22:250:22:27

HE MUTTERS INAUDIBLY

0:22:290:22:30

Rock, scissors, rock.

0:22:320:22:34

Rock, scissors rock.

0:22:340:22:37

Well done, yeah. Correct. Next one.

0:22:370:22:39

Rock, paper, paper.

0:22:400:22:43

Rock, paper, paper, you say.

0:22:430:22:45

Rock, paper, paper. Well done. You've got 25 seconds left.

0:22:450:22:48

HE MUTTERS INAUDIBLY

0:22:490:22:51

Scissors, rock, paper.

0:22:550:22:57

Scissors, rock, paper, you say.

0:22:570:22:59

Scissors, rock paper is correct! Well done.

0:22:590:23:02

I actually used to own a book called How To Win At Rock, Paper, Scissors.

0:23:020:23:05

Never!

0:23:050:23:07

Believe it or not, it's about 90 pages long.

0:23:070:23:09

JOHN LAUGHS

0:23:090:23:10

Well, you read the book, didn't you? Very carefully, obviously.

0:23:100:23:13

-It's finally come in useful.

-It has indeed. You ever think it would do?

0:23:130:23:16

-No.

-Well, congratulations to you, Sam.

0:23:160:23:19

-You did very well indeed, didn't he, Brain?

-Yes.

0:23:190:23:21

I'm a little worried about this team. I think they just might beat me.

0:23:210:23:25

Sam, you added 18 seconds in that Zone,

0:23:250:23:29

which means that Southville Running Minds,

0:23:290:23:31

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

0:23:310:23:36

Well, that is a pretty good score. So, Sam, congratulations to you.

0:23:360:23:40

Please go and rejoin your team-mates.

0:23:400:23:42

We've finished the individual rounds now,

0:23:420:23:45

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

0:23:450:23:49

and take home some money in today's big final.

0:23:490:23:52

Southville Running Minds,

0:23:550:23:56

you've built up 57 seconds in the four Zones.

0:23:560:23:59

Now the challenge is for each of you in turn to answer two

0:23:590:24:02

questions correctly within that time.

0:24:020:24:04

If you can do that, you'll take home our top prize.

0:24:040:24:07

If you can't, then there's till an opportunity to win some cash.

0:24:090:24:12

The Brain has given you a further two minutes in which

0:24:120:24:15

to get those answers.

0:24:150:24:17

But as the time ticks down, so does the money, and the longer you take,

0:24:170:24:20

the less there is to win, and if you take too long,

0:24:200:24:23

you'll win nothing at all.

0:24:230:24:25

So, Sam, you picked the order in which your team are going to play.

0:24:250:24:28

What's your reasoning behind that?

0:24:280:24:30

Well, Jane's got a really strong strength at mental puzzles,

0:24:300:24:34

so I'm putting her first cos I think she'll get us

0:24:340:24:36

off to a really good, fast start, and I'm going last

0:24:360:24:39

because I think it falls on me to be the person who's right at the end.

0:24:390:24:44

OK. Well, now, it's time to get serious. Let's play today's final.

0:24:440:24:49

Over to you, Brain.

0:24:490:24:51

You'll only face questions from the games you've already seen today.

0:24:510:24:55

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

0:24:550:25:00

The big question is, can you beat The Brain?

0:25:000:25:03

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

0:25:030:25:05

that's Jane, and once you've answered two questions

0:25:050:25:07

correctly, Jane, we move on to Kerrie and so on down the line.

0:25:070:25:11

Good luck, everybody. Let's start the game.

0:25:110:25:13

What time is it?

0:25:170:25:19

Ten to...11.

0:25:200:25:22

Correct.

right at the end, didn't you?

0:27:120:27:13

-So, how do you all feel?

-Good!

-Very good.

-Woo-hoo!

0:27:170:27:18

You beat The Brain. How do you feel about that, Brain?

0:27:180:27:20

I'm absolutely distraught!

0:27:200:27:22

But I will say, you know, I'm not a sore loser, so, well done,

0:27:220:27:25

and may I say, you all have lovely teeth.

LAUGHTER

0:27:270:27:29

Thank you all for watching today. I hope you enjoyed playing along.

-Goodbye!

-Goodbye!

-From the Brain...

-Goodbye!

0:27:370:27:39

And from me. See you next time.

0:27:390:27:40

I gave you two special play at home questions at the start of the show.

0:27:430:27:47

Time to see whether you got them right.

0:27:470:27:50

Which of the four wheels on the right matches the one on the left?

0:27:500:27:54

The answer is...

0:27:560:27:57

And what about the second? Name the missing winners and losers.

0:27:590:28:03

The answer is...

0:28:060:28:07

Whether you got those right or wrong, you can always improve

0:28:090:28:12

your mental muscle by watching us next time on Beat The Brain.

0:28:120:28:17

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 are members of Southville Running Club try to outpace the Brain and win £3,000.
