Hello, it's Brain here.

0:00:020:00:05

I've created some real mind teasers for our team today.

0:00:050:00:08

Here's a couple for you to try.

0:00:080:00:10

Here's another one - Catch Me If You Can.

0:00:200:00:22

What number plate do you see?

0:00:240:00:26

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

0:00:320:00:34

Now let's see whether our team today has what it takes to Beat The Brain.

0:00:340:00:39

Please welcome the man with all the answers -

0:00:580:01:00

broadcasting legend John Craven.

0:01:000:01:02

Well, thank you and now strap yourselves in for a half-hour

0:01:040:01:07

mental workout that will test the quality of your mind,

0:01:070:01:10

not the quality of your general knowledge.

0:01:100:01:13

Let's say hello first of all to The Brain behind the games.

0:01:130:01:16

-How are you today, Brain?

-I'm very, very well.

0:01:160:01:19

Excited to be here, John,

0:01:190:01:20

and may I say you look wonderful in bottle green?

0:01:200:01:23

I want to drink from you.

0:01:230:01:25

Well, in a flirtatious mood today obviously.

0:01:250:01:27

Let's see how our team copes with that.

0:01:270:01:29

Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:290:01:31

Hello, I'm John and I've been a London cabbie for 16 years.

0:01:310:01:35

Hi, I'm also a John and I've been a cabbie for 13 years.

0:01:350:01:39

I'm Marvin, I've been a London taxi driver for 16 years.

0:01:390:01:43

I'm Tony, I'm the team captain,

0:01:430:01:45

and I've been driving a cab for 34 years.

0:01:450:01:47

-APPLAUSE

-So, a quartet of cabbies.

0:01:470:01:49

Thanks for switching off the meter for half-an-hour.

0:01:490:01:51

That's what he thinks.

0:01:510:01:53

Now, have you chosen a name for your team?

0:01:540:01:57

Yeah, we're going to be Streets Ahead.

0:01:570:01:59

You cabbies obviously do think you're streets ahead of anybody else.

0:01:590:02:02

-Absolutely.

-Now you've got to prove that against The Brain.

0:02:020:02:05

So the best of luck, everybody.

0:02:050:02:07

Well, this is how it works.

0:02:070:02:08

The show's Brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:080:02:12

Now, The Brain will select four of those six Zones

0:02:170:02:21

for you to play today.

0:02:210:02:22

And, Tony, as captain, you've got to nominate which team member

0:02:220:02:25

you think will perform best in each Zone, OK?

0:02:250:02:29

You're playing for time instead of points,

0:02:290:02:31

with every correct answer adding three seconds to your total,

0:02:310:02:34

what we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:340:02:36

The more time you build up, the more chances you have of

0:02:360:02:39

beating The Brain in today's final

0:02:390:02:41

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

0:02:410:02:45

So, Streets Ahead, are you ready to play?

0:02:450:02:47

ALL: Yes.

0:02:470:02:48

Let's get going.

0:02:480:02:49

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

0:02:490:02:53

So, Brain, a Zone, please.

0:02:530:02:55

Logic. Tony, who are you going to choose to play the Logic Zone?

0:02:580:03:01

Well, this was a slightly tricky one, so what I think we need is a

0:03:010:03:04

big brain on this one, so we're going to have the boy Marvin.

0:03:040:03:08

Right, well, come and join me, Marvin.

0:03:080:03:10

APPLAUSE

0:03:100:03:11

-Nice to see you.

-And you, John.

0:03:130:03:15

And what did you do before you were a cabbie?

0:03:150:03:17

I was in banking before I became a cabbie.

0:03:170:03:19

-That's quite a change, isn't it?

-Yeah, drastic change.

0:03:190:03:22

And what do you do when you're not driving a cab?

0:03:220:03:24

I'm an Arsenal season ticket holder and I love American football,

0:03:240:03:27

so I'm a big Dallas Cowboys fan.

0:03:270:03:29

-Do you ever go see them play?

-Once a year, yeah.

0:03:290:03:31

Take a trip out to the States and watch them play.

0:03:310:03:33

How do they compare with Arsenal?

0:03:330:03:35

Er... As bad as each other.

0:03:350:03:36

Right, OK, Marvin, you're going to play two games in this Zone.

0:03:380:03:42

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each.

0:03:420:03:45

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

-Hello, Marvin.

0:03:450:03:49

So you think your brain's as big as mine, do you? Let's see, shall we?

0:03:490:03:53

We shall.

0:03:530:03:54

Your first game is called...

0:03:540:03:56

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

0:03:590:04:03

To help you, have a trial run.

0:04:030:04:05

Which colour comes top and which is bottom? Go down.

0:04:070:04:09

OK, John,

0:04:090:04:10

I will say white, blue, red,

0:04:100:04:15

yellow, green, black.

0:04:150:04:19

Right.

0:04:190:04:21

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

0:04:210:04:25

You're absolutely correct.

0:04:250:04:27

Right, OK, Brain, please may we play the game?

0:04:280:04:31

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

0:04:320:04:36

But, please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:04:360:04:40

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

0:04:400:04:43

Your game starts now.

0:04:450:04:47

Red, green, black,

0:04:500:04:53

white, yellow, blue.

0:04:530:04:55

Let's see if you right.

0:04:550:04:57

That's correct. Yes, it is.

0:04:570:04:59

So you've got 33 seconds left.

0:04:590:05:01

Next one, please.

0:05:010:05:02

Blue, green, black,

0:05:040:05:08

white, red, yellow.

0:05:080:05:10

Let's see if that's correct.

0:05:100:05:13

Yes, it is. Well done.

0:05:130:05:15

Next one, please.

0:05:150:05:17

Green, blue...

0:05:180:05:20

..yellow...

0:05:220:05:24

..white...

0:05:290:05:30

Oh, I'm afraid you're out of time. Out of time, I'm sorry.

0:05:320:05:35

Oh, dear. Let's see what it was.

0:05:350:05:38

-Just a bit too slow.

-You almost got there, didn't you?

-Almost.

0:05:410:05:45

Never mind. You were beaten by the clock on that one.

0:05:450:05:47

So, what did you think, Brain?

0:05:470:05:48

Well, I think he's probably better at picking up passengers, don't you?

0:05:480:05:53

Could we have game number two, please?

0:05:540:05:56

Marvin, here's your second game.

0:05:560:05:58

Identify the phrase or saying from the cryptic visual puzzle.

0:06:010:06:06

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

0:06:060:06:09

So what do you think is there, Marvin?

0:06:110:06:14

What phrase does that make?

0:06:150:06:17

-That makes Bottoms up, John.

-Bottoms up.

0:06:170:06:21

It's upside down. So, bottoms up, let's see if you're right.

0:06:210:06:25

You are indeed. So, you've obviously got this game very clearly.

0:06:250:06:29

Let's hope so, John.

0:06:290:06:30

-So, Brain, let's play the real thing.

-Very well.

0:06:320:06:35

Now, Marvin, you have as many guesses as you like on this game,

0:06:350:06:39

but I will not move onto the next question until you give me

0:06:390:06:42

the right answer or pass.

0:06:420:06:44

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:06:440:06:49

Your game starts now.

0:06:490:06:51

So talk me through these, what do you see?

0:06:510:06:53

-Five Ts with a green T in the middle.

-And an arrow.

0:06:530:06:58

What does that tell you?

0:06:580:07:01

-Green tea?

-Uh-huh.

0:07:010:07:02

Green tea is right, yeah.

0:07:040:07:06

30 seconds left.

0:07:060:07:08

Through and thin.

0:07:080:07:10

Through thick and thin?

0:07:100:07:12

Through thick and thin, let's see if that's right.

0:07:120:07:15

It is indeed. 20 seconds left.

0:07:150:07:17

Ounce, kilo, tonne.

0:07:170:07:20

Middleweight.

0:07:200:07:21

Middleweight.

0:07:210:07:23

You're absolutely right.

0:07:230:07:24

That was a splendid little round for you there, Marvin.

0:07:240:07:27

You were a big brain on that one. Wasn't he, Brain?

0:07:270:07:31

Yes, very big, but not quite as big as me.

0:07:310:07:34

Marvin, congratulations.

0:07:340:07:36

-Thank you, Brain.

-You know what?

0:07:360:07:37

You added 15 seconds in that Zone

0:07:370:07:40

and that means you have a total of 15 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:07:400:07:44

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:07:440:07:46

-Well done, Marvin. Lovely to see you.

-Thank you, John.

0:07:460:07:49

Back to the rank.

0:07:490:07:51

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

0:07:510:07:54

and who is going to take it on.

0:07:540:07:56

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:07:560:07:58

Orientation it is. So, Tony, who are you picking for Orientation?

0:08:020:08:06

Well, what I've did, I've brought my dad along and this is his game.

0:08:060:08:10

-Go on, John, up you go, mate.

-So, John, come on over, join me.

0:08:100:08:14

APPLAUSE

0:08:140:08:15

-How are you today?

-I'm good, I'm good, thank you.

0:08:170:08:20

-You've been a cabbie for a long time now.

-13 years, not very long, yeah.

0:08:200:08:23

-What did you do before that?

-I used to run a haulage company in Belgium.

0:08:230:08:27

Ah, so still involved with driving then?

0:08:270:08:28

Yeah, it's always been transport.

0:08:280:08:30

And how do you think you'll do with Orientation?

0:08:300:08:32

HE LAUGHS

0:08:320:08:34

Yeah, I've done it once...

0:08:340:08:37

and I got lost.

0:08:370:08:39

-Well, let's hope you don't get lost this time.

-I'll do my best.

0:08:390:08:42

So, Brain, what's the first game?

0:08:420:08:44

-Hello, John F.

-Hello.

-How are you?

0:08:440:08:47

-I'm very well, thank you.

-I noticed you're not wearing a watch.

0:08:470:08:50

I hope that's not going to be a problem.

0:08:500:08:53

No, it irritates my wrist, so I can't wear watches.

0:08:530:08:56

-Stop talking.

-Sorry.

0:08:560:08:57

This is your first game. It's called...

0:08:570:09:00

John F, what is the real time?

0:09:020:09:05

To give you some practice, have a trial run.

0:09:050:09:10

So that's the mirror image, what's the real time?

0:09:100:09:13

You see why she mentioned the watch now?

0:09:140:09:16

8:20, sorry.

0:09:180:09:19

8:20, you're saying.

0:09:190:09:21

Yep, you're absolutely right. Obviously a clock watcher.

0:09:220:09:26

OK, Brain, let's play the game.

0:09:260:09:29

John F, you have a maximum of 45 seconds to answer these questions.

0:09:290:09:33

And remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:09:330:09:37

Your game starts now.

0:09:380:09:39

What's the real time?

0:09:410:09:45

3:45.

0:09:450:09:47

3:45.

0:09:470:09:49

-No.

-No. 8:15.

0:09:490:09:52

And the clock's ticking away.

0:09:520:09:54

What's the mirror image real time there?

0:09:540:09:56

4:25.

0:09:560:09:59

4:25, you think. Let's see.

0:09:590:10:00

Yeah, absolutely right there.

0:10:000:10:01

You've got 25 seconds left.

0:10:010:10:04

What's the time here?

0:10:050:10:07

-10 to one.

-10 to one. Let's see if that's correct.

0:10:070:10:10

You're absolutely right and you had some time left, so well done.

0:10:100:10:14

So, Brain, how did you rate John's performance there?

0:10:140:10:17

Well, he did have a little stumble but, as Meatloaf would say,

0:10:170:10:20

"Two out of three ain't bad."

0:10:200:10:21

-No. Please could we having game two?

-Of course, John.

0:10:210:10:25

Now here's something you really should be good at, John F.

0:10:250:10:29

Your second game...

0:10:290:10:30

Follow the car's journey

0:10:340:10:36

and work out which direction it's facing at the finish.

0:10:360:10:39

-No pressure.

-Oh, no.

0:10:390:10:41

Have a trial run.

0:10:410:10:43

Turn right.

0:10:470:10:48

U-turn.

0:10:500:10:51

Turn left.

0:10:510:10:54

So which direction is it heading in eventually?

0:10:540:10:56

-South.

-South.

0:10:560:10:58

I'll see if you're right.

0:10:580:11:00

You are indeed.

0:11:000:11:01

-Do you use a sat nav when you're driving the cab?

-No.

0:11:010:11:04

-Professional misconduct that is.

-Is it really?

0:11:040:11:08

-You did the knowledge then, did you?

-Yes, sir.

0:11:080:11:10

So, let's see how you do on our sat nav then.

0:11:100:11:13

Brain, we're ready to play.

0:11:130:11:15

-Please remember, John F, I can only accept your first answer.

-OK.

0:11:150:11:19

Your game starts now.

0:11:210:11:23

Turn right.

0:11:260:11:27

Turn left.

0:11:290:11:30

Turn right.

0:11:300:11:31

So, which direction now?

0:11:340:11:36

Turn left and then turn right.

0:11:360:11:38

Sorry, did it say turn left, turn right?

0:11:390:11:42

It did, didn't it?

0:11:420:11:43

-I can't help you, I'm afraid.

-Sorry.

0:11:430:11:46

-What are you going to say?

-North.

0:11:460:11:48

North, let's see if you're right.

0:11:480:11:51

East, I'm afraid.

0:11:510:11:53

So, let's have the next one please, Brain.

0:11:530:11:55

Embarrassing, this.

0:11:570:11:59

Turn left.

0:11:590:12:01

Turn right.

0:12:010:12:02

Turn right.

0:12:020:12:04

Turn left.

0:12:040:12:05

-East.

-East, you're thinking.

0:12:070:12:10

You're heading east.

0:12:100:12:11

No, you were heading north.

0:12:110:12:13

No-one will be getting in my cab, will they?

0:12:130:12:15

They are hard these, I find these hard as well,

0:12:150:12:17

so off we go with the final one.

0:12:170:12:19

U-turn

0:12:240:12:25

U-turn.

0:12:250:12:26

Turn right.

0:12:260:12:28

U-turn.

0:12:290:12:30

-East.

-East.

0:12:300:12:32

Let's see if that's correct.

0:12:330:12:35

It's west. Oh, well, you don't need a sat nav anyway, do you?

0:12:350:12:40

-No.

-You find your way all around London,

0:12:400:12:43

even if you can't find your way round our board.

0:12:430:12:46

Yeah, but it's...

0:12:460:12:48

-So, what do you think, Brain?

-Well, I think it's probably much easier

0:12:480:12:51

when you're behind the wheel and I'd gladly get into your cab, John F.

0:12:510:12:55

-Do they have seatbelts for brains?

-Oh, yes,

0:12:550:12:58

-we've got seatbelts for brains.

-Oh, good.

0:12:580:13:00

John, you added six seconds in that Zone

0:13:000:13:03

and that means Streets Ahead now have 21 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:13:030:13:08

-APPLAUSE

-So, hope you enjoyed playing anyway.

0:13:080:13:10

Thank you very much.

0:13:100:13:11

Thank you very much, John.

0:13:110:13:13

So here we are, two down and two more contestants now

0:13:130:13:16

are champing at the bit to take on the chance of beating The Brain,

0:13:160:13:20

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

0:13:200:13:24

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:13:240:13:26

Well, Tony, who is going to be playing against The Brain

0:13:300:13:35

when it comes to Language?

0:13:350:13:36

What I've decided, because John O lives so far south

0:13:360:13:40

he almost speaks French, that we're going to pick John for this one.

0:13:400:13:45

Right, well, John, come and join me.

0:13:450:13:47

APPLAUSE

0:13:470:13:49

-Are you good at language?

-I'm OK. I can get by.

0:13:500:13:53

The Brain's version of language may not be what

0:13:530:13:55

-you think of as language.

-Yeah, that's what I'm worried about.

0:13:550:13:58

So we'll have to wait and see about that.

0:13:580:14:00

Have you had any famous people in your cab?

0:14:000:14:02

Yeah, I've had one or two over the years, John.

0:14:020:14:03

I mean, I'm still waiting for the big one,

0:14:030:14:05

obviously the Craven hasn't arrived yet.

0:14:050:14:08

Yeah, Jeremy Clarkson.

0:14:080:14:10

-Jeremy Clarkson?

-Yeah.

-Were you a bit apprehensive?

0:14:100:14:13

Yes, a little bit.

0:14:130:14:14

I was just a bit worried about my driving,

0:14:140:14:16

in case I was going a bit too slow, if anything.

0:14:160:14:19

-Did he make any comment?

-No, he didn't. Thankfully, no.

0:14:190:14:21

And you managed to get into the right place?

0:14:210:14:23

Yeah, and he gave me some money, which was a bonus.

0:14:230:14:25

Well, let's see how you do in the Language Zone, John.

0:14:250:14:28

Brain, let's have a game.

0:14:280:14:30

-Bonjour, John O.

-Hello, Brain. Bonjour.

0:14:300:14:33

Well done, that's a start.

0:14:330:14:35

Do I detect a little trace of sweat on those brows? Are you nervous?

0:14:350:14:39

-No, not me.

-Don't be nervous, my darling, be very nervous. Here we go.

0:14:390:14:43

Here's your first game.

0:14:430:14:45

All you have to do is rearrange the newspaper cuttings to form a word.

0:14:480:14:52

Why don't I give you warm up with a trial run?

0:14:520:14:55

What word does that make up, those three bits?

0:14:570:15:00

-What do you guess?

-Argument.

-Argument.

0:15:010:15:03

Let's see if you're correct.

0:15:030:15:05

You are indeed. Well done. So, that's how the game plays.

0:15:050:15:08

Little bits of words making up a big word. OK, you happy with it?

0:15:080:15:12

-Yep, let's do it.

-Brain, bring on the game.

0:15:120:15:15

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

0:15:150:15:20

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

0:15:200:15:24

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:15:240:15:28

Your game starts now.

0:15:280:15:30

What word is made up of those three bits?

0:15:320:15:34

So I've got, AL, NA, TUR.

0:15:370:15:39

Going to pass?

0:15:440:15:46

Pass.

0:15:470:15:48

Natural. Right. Next one, please.

0:15:480:15:50

-Bouncer.

-Bouncer. Let's see, is that right?

0:15:550:15:58

Yes, you are. And you've got 17 seconds left. One more.

0:15:580:16:01

What have we got?

0:16:110:16:13

-Butterfly, butterfly!

-Out of time, I'm afraid.

0:16:150:16:18

-Ah!

-You get it?

0:16:180:16:19

Butterfly. Sting like a bee.

0:16:190:16:22

Well, Brain, what about that?

0:16:220:16:26

Well, he wasn't a natural at that game, was he?

0:16:260:16:30

-No, I think you beat him on that one, didn't you?

-I certainly did.

0:16:300:16:34

Yeah, so never mind, John.

0:16:340:16:35

Let's hope you do better at the next Language game.

0:16:350:16:37

Let's see, please can we play the game?

0:16:370:16:40

Here's the second game...

0:16:400:16:41

Find the hidden word using the sentence as your clue.

0:16:440:16:48

Here's a trial run for you, John O.

0:16:480:16:50

So there's a word hidden somewhere in there

0:16:510:16:55

and it could be letters linking words.

0:16:550:16:58

-So, aquatic animal.

-I think that is seal, John.

0:17:020:17:06

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

0:17:060:17:08

Seal, yeah. Right, OK, Brain, let's play for real.

0:17:080:17:13

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

0:17:130:17:16

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

0:17:160:17:21

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:17:210:17:25

Your game starts now.

0:17:250:17:27

Find the hidden word there then.

0:17:290:17:30

-Mouse, John.

-Mouse.

0:17:340:17:35

Yeah, across the words. Good.

0:17:350:17:37

Next one.

0:17:370:17:38

23 seconds.

0:17:500:17:52

Pass.

0:17:520:17:54

Pass on that one.

0:17:540:17:55

It is Delhi.

0:17:550:17:56

Right, here's the last one.

0:17:570:17:59

Five seconds left. What can you see there?

0:18:070:18:09

I'm looking for an earthquake, but I can't see it.

0:18:090:18:13

-Time's up, I'm afraid.

-Flood.

0:18:130:18:15

-Drought.

-Drought, you see. That was a difficult one, I thought.

0:18:160:18:19

A bit of a natural disaster in my brain I think there, John.

0:18:190:18:22

But we do say, on this show,

0:18:220:18:23

it's different brains for different games. Don't we, Brain?

0:18:230:18:27

I suppose we do, Mr Craven.

0:18:270:18:29

But, John O, you sort of dried up there, didn't you?

0:18:290:18:32

-Rather like a drought.

-Yeah, absolutely.

0:18:320:18:34

Not that I want to rub it in, my darling, but I'm going to.

0:18:340:18:39

John O, you added six seconds in that Zone.

0:18:390:18:42

That means, in total,

0:18:420:18:43

Streets Ahead have 27 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:18:430:18:46

APPLAUSE

0:18:460:18:48

Captain Tony, you're our final player,

0:18:480:18:50

so why don't you come and swap places with John O here

0:18:500:18:53

and we'll find out which Zone you'll be playing?

0:18:530:18:55

-Nice to see you, John.

-How do you think so far about your team?

0:18:580:19:01

Well, I think they've been remarkable.

0:19:010:19:04

Well, apart from John - he was useless.

0:19:040:19:06

And tell me about yourself.

0:19:060:19:08

What's your ambition in life?

0:19:080:19:10

Well, what I want to do is I want to drive a cab till I'm 92.

0:19:100:19:13

Well, it was an ambition, now it's an necessity really.

0:19:130:19:16

-Is there an age limit on how old you can be?

-Not that I know of.

0:19:160:19:19

I think as long as you just see the end of the bonnet you've got half a chance.

0:19:190:19:22

We've got three Zones remaining now.

0:19:220:19:24

Let's get down to business, Tony.

0:19:240:19:26

Multitasking, Memory and Observation.

0:19:260:19:30

Now, which of those three would you hope to come up now for you?

0:19:300:19:34

I think the Multitasking, I don't multitask, I'm just single-minded.

0:19:340:19:39

So either of the other two, I might have half a chance.

0:19:390:19:42

OK, let's see, Brain, which Zone is going to come up.

0:19:420:19:45

-Brain, over to you.

-Hello, Tony.

-Oh, hello there, all right?

0:19:500:19:53

I'd love to run my fingers through you're hair,

0:19:530:19:56

but I'm a brain so I can't.

0:19:560:19:58

Anyway, this should be right up your street, as they say.

0:19:580:20:01

Here's your first game.

0:20:010:20:03

Tony, tell me which number plate you saw.

0:20:060:20:09

Have yourself a trial run.

0:20:090:20:11

Which of those six was the one on the car?

0:20:200:20:24

VG24... 24...

0:20:240:20:27

Number two.

0:20:270:20:28

Number two. Let's have a look and see if that's right. WFS.

0:20:280:20:32

No, it was WFD.

0:20:320:20:34

I got the VG24.

0:20:340:20:36

-Yeah, so you've got to be really observant on this one.

-Right, OK.

0:20:360:20:39

-So you've got the hang of it?

-Yeah.

0:20:390:20:41

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

0:20:410:20:44

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

0:20:440:20:47

Your game starts now.

0:20:470:20:49

What was that one?

0:20:570:21:00

It's JU77 KXR. Number one.

0:21:000:21:01

Number one.

0:21:010:21:03

Let's see if that's correct. It was indeed, yeah.

0:21:030:21:06

OK, next one, please.

0:21:060:21:07

CN30. That was number two, I think.

0:21:160:21:18

Number two you think. Was that correct?

0:21:180:21:20

It was indeed. You're doing well here.

0:21:200:21:22

Third one coming up.

0:21:220:21:24

It's going away.

0:21:290:21:31

WCG...

0:21:320:21:33

-I think it's number four.

-Number four, you think.

0:21:340:21:37

WCG. Let's see if you're right.

0:21:370:21:39

And you are indeed.

0:21:390:21:41

Yeah, well done on that one. You obviously know your number plates.

0:21:410:21:44

Yes, I was close to that last one, I nearly hit him up the back.

0:21:440:21:48

Well, Brain, please, let's have the next game.

0:21:480:21:50

Here's the second game then.

0:21:500:21:52

Tell me the order the balloons pop.

0:21:540:21:57

To help you out, have a trial run.

0:21:570:22:00

-So what was that?

-That was the blue one, yellow and purple.

0:22:060:22:10

Blue, yellow and purple, you're saying. Let's see if that's correct.

0:22:100:22:14

It is indeed. OK, let's play the game, please.

0:22:140:22:17

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:22:170:22:20

Your game starts now.

0:22:210:22:23

That was purple, red, yellow.

0:22:280:22:30

Purple, red, yellow, you're saying.

0:22:300:22:32

Is that correct?

0:22:320:22:33

Yes. Next please.

0:22:330:22:35

Was that red, blue, purple?

0:22:420:22:44

Red, blue, purple, you're saying.

0:22:440:22:47

Absolutely correct, you're good on banging balloons.

0:22:470:22:50

Off we go with the final one.

0:22:500:22:52

Red, yellow, blue and purple.

0:22:570:23:00

Red, yellow, blue and purple.

0:23:000:23:02

Absolutely correct. You're playing well, captain.

0:23:030:23:06

-I've no idea what happened there.

-A formidable game.

0:23:060:23:09

So, what do you think of that, Brain?

0:23:090:23:11

I thought he was excellent.

0:23:110:23:13

Very well done, Tony.

0:23:130:23:15

You have managed to add 18 seconds in that Zone

0:23:150:23:18

and this means that, Streets Ahead, you have finished

0:23:180:23:22

with a grand total of 45 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:220:23:26

Congratulations there, Tony. A captain's performance.

0:23:260:23:29

That was brilliant, thank you very much indeed.

0:23:290:23:31

Please go and join your team.

0:23:310:23:33

-APPLAUSE

-Well, we've finished the individual rounds

0:23:330:23:35

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

0:23:350:23:39

one last time, and take home a possible £3,000 in today's final.

0:23:390:23:44

APPLAUSE

0:23:440:23:46

Well, Streets Ahead, in previous rounds you were playing for time,

0:23:480:23:52

now you're playing for money.

0:23:520:23:54

You added a total of 45 seconds to your Brain Bank.

0:23:540:23:57

If each of you can give two correct answers within that time then

0:23:570:24:01

you'll share our jackpot today of £3,000.

0:24:010:24:04

Now, if those 45 second run out, don't worry because The Brain has

0:24:040:24:08

given you an extra two minutes to get those eight correct answers.

0:24:080:24:13

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

0:24:130:24:16

And if the clock reaches zero, you win nothing.

0:24:160:24:20

Well, Tony, as captain, you've chosen the order

0:24:200:24:22

in which your team are going to play.

0:24:220:24:24

Any logic in that or is it just pot luck?

0:24:240:24:26

Well, I thought we'd put a young brain first.

0:24:260:24:30

Young-ish.

0:24:300:24:31

-Young-ish, yeah.

-He did well.

-He did do well.

0:24:310:24:34

Even I've done strangely well, so I thought I'd go second

0:24:340:24:38

and then it was sort of the rest really. Just see how they get on.

0:24:380:24:41

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

0:24:410:24:45

Over to you, Brain.

0:24:470:24:48

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

0:24:480:24:52

For every question in the final, I will only accept your first answer.

0:24:520:24:57

Streets Ahead, beat me if you can.

0:24:570:24:59

That's the big question -

0:24:590:25:01

can you beat The Brain?

0:25:010:25:03

As usual, we'll start with the player on the left - that's you, Marvin.

0:25:030:25:06

And once you've had two correct answers,

0:25:060:25:08

we will move from you to Tony and down the line.

0:25:080:25:11

So, good luck to everybody.

0:25:110:25:12

Let's start the game.

0:25:120:25:14

Marvin, what time is it?

0:25:180:25:20

That is 7:20.

0:25:220:25:24

Incorrect.

0:25:270:25:28

Make A Word.

0:25:290:25:31

Tractor.

0:25:310:25:33

Tractor, that's correct.

0:25:330:25:35

Out With A Bang.

0:25:350:25:36

Blue, yellow, purple.

0:25:390:25:41

Yep, that's correct. On to Tony.

0:25:410:25:44

Pick up the sticks in order.

0:25:450:25:48

Green, yellow, blue,

0:25:480:25:50

red, black, white.

0:25:500:25:51

Correct.

0:25:530:25:55

What was that number plate?

0:25:590:26:01

Number four.

0:26:040:26:06

Correct.

0:26:070:26:08

John O, onto you. Quickly.

0:26:090:26:11

Torch.

0:26:150:26:17

Correct.

0:26:170:26:18

Right, next one. Tip Of The Tongue.

0:26:190:26:23

What phrase is that?

0:26:230:26:24

Beat the bush.

0:26:260:26:27

Incorrect.

0:26:270:26:29

Beat around the bush. One more.

0:26:290:26:32

-Sat nav one.

-Turn right.

0:26:320:26:34

Turn right.

0:26:340:26:36

Turn left.

0:26:360:26:38

What direction now?

0:26:380:26:39

-East.

-Is correct.

0:26:410:26:43

John F.

0:26:450:26:48

Pass.

0:26:500:26:51

-Which order?

-Yellow, red, purple.

0:26:570:27:00

That's correct, yeah. One more.

0:27:000:27:02

Pick up some sticks.

0:27:020:27:03

White, green, blue,

0:27:030:27:04

red, black, yellow.

0:27:040:27:06

Stop the clock.

0:27:060:27:08

Well done. You've won £1,375, so congratulations.

0:27:080:27:13

APPLAUSE

0:27:130:27:14

So how do you feel about that, Brain?

0:27:140:27:15

Well, here's a little ode to them.

0:27:150:27:18

Though your brain power here and there was, let's face it, rather shabby,

0:27:180:27:22

you beat me, team Streets Ahead, so all hail the cabbie.

0:27:220:27:26

Well done, you lot.

0:27:260:27:28

Hail the cabbies.

0:27:280:27:29

Well, thank you for watching today at home.

0:27:290:27:32

We hope you enjoyed playing along as well.

0:27:320:27:34

But, for now, it's goodbye from Streets Ahead...

0:27:340:27:37

-ALL:

-Goodbye.

0:27:370:27:38

-..from The Brain...

-Goodbye.

0:27:380:27:40

..and from me. See you soon.

0:27:400:27:42

Before you go, here are the answers to the two questions

0:27:450:27:48

I gave you at the beginning of the show.

0:27:480:27:50

What's the phrase or saying?

0:27:500:27:52

The answer is...

0:27:560:27:57

And here's the second one.

0:27:590:28:01

What number plate do you see?

0:28:010:28:03

The answer is...

0:28:070:28:09

Did you get them right?

0:28:110:28:13

Join in for more challenging games next game on Beat The Brain.

0:28:130:28:17

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 London cab drivers attempt to navigate their way to beat the Brain and win £3,000.
