Hello. Ms Brain here.

0:00:020:00:05

It's nearly time to see if our team of four have the mental toughness

0:00:050:00:08

to beat me,

0:00:080:00:09

but, first, here's a couple of challenges for you to try at home.

0:00:090:00:13

Here's another one.

0:00:220:00:23

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

0:00:330:00:36

Now watch today's team attempt to use all their grey matter in a contest

0:00:360:00:40

to beat The Brain.

0:00:400:00:42

Show your appreciation for a man whose name has passed into legend

0:01:010:01:05

- John Craven.

0:01:050:01:07

Still here in the flesh. Thank you and welcome to Beat The Brain.

0:01:070:01:11

Now, over the next half-hour, our team of four contestants

0:01:110:01:14

will be put through their mental paces

0:01:140:01:16

with a series of cunningly conceived games

0:01:160:01:19

and here's the mistress of the mind herself - The Brain.

0:01:190:01:22

How you feeling?

0:01:220:01:23

Oh, mistress of the mind, I like that, John,

0:01:230:01:26

and you are master of the body. We're a perfect pair, eh?

0:01:260:01:30

Yeah, what a combination. Mind and body. Not sure about body, though.

0:01:300:01:33

Well, let's meet our team today. Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:330:01:37

I'm Siobhian and I'm an activities coordinator.

0:01:370:01:40

I'm Rachel and I'm a probation officer.

0:01:400:01:42

I'm David. I'm a retired accountant.

0:01:420:01:45

I'm Debbie. I'm the team captain and I'm an NHS complaints advisor.

0:01:450:01:49

Welcome everybody. Welcome to the show.

0:01:490:01:51

Debbie, as captain, have you got a name for your team?

0:01:510:01:54

-Our team name is Mental Gymnasts.

-Mental Gymnasts. Why is that?

0:01:540:01:57

-Over to my dad.

-We came up with the name.

0:01:570:02:00

We realised we'd have to be quite mentally agile

0:02:000:02:03

to tackle and beat The Brain,

0:02:030:02:05

so we think we've got the agility to do that.

0:02:050:02:07

Obviously, you two are connected, father and daughter,

0:02:070:02:10

but what about the other two? How do you know each other?

0:02:100:02:12

Well, I've known Debbie for a number of years

0:02:120:02:14

and she's my next-door neighbour.

0:02:140:02:16

And I've been friends with Deborah since I was about seven year old.

0:02:160:02:19

-A team of family and friends. That's what it is.

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:02:190:02:22

-And how are you feeling? Confident?

-Yeah.

-Absolutely!

-Yeah.

0:02:220:02:25

-Raring to go?

-ALL:

-Yes.

-Raring to go!

0:02:250:02:26

Well, let's get on, because this is how it works.

0:02:260:02:29

The show's brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:290:02:32

Now, The Brain will select four of these six Zones

0:02:370:02:40

for you to play today

0:02:400:02:42

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

0:02:420:02:44

you think will perform best in each Zone, OK?

0:02:440:02:48

You're playing for time instead of points

0:02:480:02:50

with every correct answer adding three seconds to your total.

0:02:500:02:53

What we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:530:02:55

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

0:02:550:02:59

in today's final and walking away with a jackpot of...

0:02:590:03:02

-So, Mental Gymnasts, ready to play?

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:03:040:03:08

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

0:03:080:03:10

Brain, Zone, please.

0:03:100:03:12

Observation. Debbie, who do you think is going to be best

0:03:180:03:21

in the Observation Zone?

0:03:210:03:23

You're definitely... Would fit in that category.

0:03:230:03:26

I'll certainly give it a try. Yes.

0:03:260:03:28

-What have you decided?

-David.

0:03:280:03:30

David's coming up. David, welcome to the Observation Zone.

0:03:300:03:34

-Quite a job, David.

-And you, sir.

0:03:380:03:39

You happy about that? Seemed to be a bit of a discussion going on there.

0:03:390:03:43

It's choice of questions. You don't know what's going to come up, so...

0:03:430:03:47

Pretty good observation, generally, though?

0:03:470:03:49

I think we're about to find out. I hope so, but...

0:03:490:03:52

OK, Brain, the first game, please.

0:03:520:03:55

-Hello, David.

-Hello, Brain.

0:03:550:03:57

Here's the first game.

0:03:570:03:58

What's the difference in the value?

0:04:010:04:03

Have a trial run.

0:04:030:04:04

What do you reckon the difference is, there, David?

0:04:060:04:08

The 20 pence on the bottom left is different to the 10 pence.

0:04:080:04:12

-Yes, so...

-Those are the two, so the difference in monetary value is 10p.

0:04:120:04:17

-10p, you say. That's your answer.

-Yes. I'll go with 10p.

0:04:170:04:21

You are correct. Are you the kind of person who checks their change?

0:04:210:04:25

With the family like mine, a number of grandchildren,

0:04:250:04:27

-you count your change.

-Well, hope you count it correctly in the game.

0:04:270:04:32

We're ready to play, I think, aren't we, David?

0:04:320:04:34

-Absolutely, please.

-Over to you, Brain.

0:04:340:04:36

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

0:04:360:04:39

Your game starts now.

0:04:410:04:43

Seconds are ticking away.

0:04:460:04:48

-The answer is 99 pence, I would say.

-You would say 99 pence.

0:04:480:04:53

And you're correct, well done. Next one, please.

0:04:530:04:55

I can... 1...

0:05:000:05:03

15...

0:05:030:05:04

4...

0:05:040:05:06

15...

0:05:060:05:08

-20 seconds left.

-4 pence.

-4 pence, you're saying. Is that correct?

0:05:080:05:12

No, it's 15. Never mind. You've got one more.

0:05:120:05:15

Ten seconds left.

0:05:180:05:20

20...

0:05:220:05:26

Two seconds left. Quickly! Quickly!

0:05:260:05:28

-Give me an answer!

-5p!

-Oh, time's up!

0:05:280:05:30

-It actually looks the same.

-I thought you said 5p.

-Yes.

0:05:300:05:32

-It actually looks the same.

-Correct?

0:05:320:05:34

It's 10 pence. So, a tough one, that, isn't it, David? Yeah?

0:05:340:05:37

-It is when you're trying to compare them.

-It is!

0:05:370:05:40

Right, on to game two, please, Brain.

0:05:400:05:42

I was naughty then, wasn't I, David?

0:05:420:05:44

I almost demolished you.

0:05:440:05:46

And, speaking of "demolish", here's your second game.

0:05:460:05:49

Count the number of missing bricks.

0:05:520:05:54

To get your eye in, have a trial run.

0:05:540:05:57

How many bricks have gone?

0:06:010:06:03

I would suggest

0:06:050:06:08

-ten.

-Ten, you think? Ten missing bricks. Is that correct?

0:06:080:06:12

Yes. Yes, it is indeed. So you got that one. All right.

0:06:120:06:14

-OK on the trial.

-Are you happy to go?

-Happy to go.

0:06:140:06:17

Right, Brain, let's play the game.

0:06:170:06:19

You only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:06:190:06:24

Your game starts now.

0:06:240:06:26

-12 bricks.

-12, you're saying.

0:06:330:06:36

Yeah, that's right. On to the next one.

0:06:360:06:38

-14 bricks.

-14 is your answer here.

0:06:430:06:46

And it's correct. 25 seconds left.

0:06:460:06:48

-13 bricks.

-13, you're saying, David.

0:06:540:06:56

That's what I'll test The Brain on.

0:06:560:06:58

-Yeah, you're correct.

-Hooray!

0:06:580:07:00

-Well, you redeemed yourself.

-Redeemed! I had to!

0:07:010:07:05

Well, Brain, what did you make of David's performance, then?

0:07:050:07:08

Unfortunately, he did very well in that final game.

0:07:080:07:12

You added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:07:120:07:14

This means, in total, Mental Gymnasts have 12 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:07:140:07:19

A very good start. Thank you, David.

0:07:190:07:21

If you'd like to go and rejoin your team.

0:07:210:07:24

Time to find out which Zone we're going to next

0:07:240:07:26

and who is going to take it on,

0:07:260:07:28

so, Brain, Zone, please.

0:07:280:07:30

Orientation it is. So, Debbie, who's going to play this game?

0:07:340:07:38

Of the six available to us, this wouldn't be, I think,

0:07:380:07:40

any of our strengths, so I'll take one for the team.

0:07:400:07:44

-You sure?

-Yeah. That all right?

-Yeah. Absolutely.

0:07:440:07:47

Come and join me, Debbie.

0:07:470:07:49

-Can I say welcome to the Orientation Zone?

-Thank you very much.

0:07:510:07:54

Do you play kind of orientation games?

0:07:540:07:56

No, I'm probably going to be useless.

0:07:560:07:58

Well, let's find out, shall we?

0:07:580:08:00

The Brain, I can see, is smiling already.

0:08:000:08:03

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

0:08:030:08:07

-Hello, Debbie.

-Hello!

0:08:070:08:09

Don't be nervous. Here's your first game.

0:08:090:08:11

Tell me whether the hands are left or right.

0:08:140:08:17

To give you some practice, have a trial run.

0:08:170:08:19

It's a good tip to use your own hands to work this out, I think.

0:08:230:08:28

-Right. Number one would be right.

-Right.

0:08:280:08:30

I think number two, upside down, would be right

0:08:300:08:33

and three would be left, so I would say right, right, left.

0:08:330:08:37

OK. Let's see if you're correct.

0:08:370:08:40

-You are indeed.

-Yeah!

0:08:400:08:43

So, let's play the game.

0:08:430:08:44

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

0:08:440:08:48

Please remember I will only accept your first answer.

0:08:480:08:51

Your game starts now.

0:08:530:08:55

Left.

0:09:010:09:02

Right.

0:09:020:09:05

Left.

0:09:050:09:06

Left, right, left. Let's see if that's right.

0:09:060:09:09

It is, on to the next one. 30 seconds left.

0:09:090:09:11

Right.

0:09:110:09:12

Right.

0:09:150:09:17

-Right.

-Right, right, right.

-Left!

0:09:200:09:22

Sorry, right, right, right, first, was what you said. OK.

0:09:220:09:25

Oh, Deborah, I couldn't see it! I couldn't see it!

0:09:250:09:28

You've got 30 seconds left. Hurry up.

0:09:280:09:30

What's this one?

0:09:300:09:31

Oh, my goodness me!

0:09:330:09:34

Left.

0:09:340:09:36

Left. Right. Left, left, right.

0:09:360:09:38

Left, left, right. Is that right?

0:09:380:09:40

-Oh, no!

-Oh!

-I'm so sorry!

0:09:400:09:43

I even stood up and did the thing.

0:09:430:09:45

And there'll be lots and lots of people at home doing that as well.

0:09:450:09:49

-I wonder if they've done better than you. Debs.

-I'm so sorry.

0:09:490:09:53

So, Brain, can we have the next one, please?

0:09:540:09:57

Of course you can.

0:09:570:09:58

Debbie, never apologise for not being very good.

0:09:580:10:02

Here's your second game.

0:10:020:10:03

What is the real time?

0:10:060:10:09

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

0:10:090:10:11

There's the mirror image. What's the real time?

0:10:140:10:17

-Half past.

-Half past.

0:10:200:10:22

One, two...

0:10:220:10:25

Half past two, obviously.

0:10:250:10:26

-Half past two.

-I actually did that, didn't I?

-And you're correct.

0:10:260:10:30

-Ah, I find this really difficult.

-Do you?

0:10:300:10:32

This would not be my game at all.

0:10:320:10:34

Well, unfortunately, it is your game!

0:10:340:10:37

-Are you ready to play?

-Yes.

-Right. Off we go.

0:10:370:10:40

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

0:10:400:10:45

Your game starts now.

0:10:450:10:46

Half past...

0:10:490:10:52

-Half past seven?

-Half past seven, you're saying.

0:10:550:10:58

-Yeah. Absolutely right.

-Yeah!

-Next one, next one.

0:10:580:11:01

Five to two.

0:11:040:11:07

Five minutes to two o'clock.

0:11:070:11:09

Five minutes to two, that's correct, as well.

0:11:090:11:11

One to go. 21 seconds left.

0:11:110:11:14

25 to 12.

0:11:140:11:16

25 to 12.

0:11:160:11:18

-Yes. That's correct, as well.

-Yes!

0:11:180:11:21

-So...

-HE LAUGHS

0:11:210:11:24

Oh, I thought I was going to suck.

0:11:240:11:25

-Yeah, and you were dreading that one.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:11:250:11:28

-And you did incredibly well.

-I'm really, really pleased.

0:11:280:11:30

-I'm really pleased. Yeah, very much.

-So, what do you think, Brain?

0:11:300:11:34

Turns out you were very good on that last game.

0:11:340:11:36

Debbie, you added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:11:360:11:39

This means, in total,

0:11:390:11:41

Mental Gymnasts now have 24 seconds in the Brain Bank.

0:11:410:11:44

APPLAUSE

0:11:440:11:45

-Thank you.

-You're a good clock watcher! Thank you, Debbie.

0:11:450:11:49

Rejoin your team.

0:11:490:11:50

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

0:11:500:11:54

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:11:540:11:56

-Multi-tasking.

-Multi-tasking. So, Debbie?

0:11:590:12:03

-I definitely think Siobhian. Siobhian is definitely...

-A good multi-tasker.

0:12:030:12:07

-So come and join me, Siobhian.

-APPLAUSE

0:12:070:12:11

-Hello.

-How are you feeling?

0:12:110:12:13

-I'm all right, how are you?

-Good. Are you a multi-tasker?

-Yeah,

0:12:130:12:17

I think, as a woman, you kind of have to be, running a house

0:12:170:12:20

and having a child.

0:12:200:12:22

-I hear, as well, that you're pretty keen on volcanoes.

-Yes, I know.

0:12:220:12:27

I was fortunate to go to Sorrento on my honeymoon.

0:12:270:12:29

Me and my husband climbed Mount Vesuvius. It was epic.

0:12:290:12:32

So you picked there to go on your honeymoon,

0:12:320:12:35

-because you wanted to climb the volcano?

-Yes. My husband had no choice!

0:12:350:12:38

Well, let's see how you do now as we go into Multi-tasking.

0:12:400:12:43

Brain, the first game, please.

0:12:430:12:45

-Hello, Siobhian.

-Hello, Brain.

0:12:450:12:47

So you went on honeymoon to a volcano -

0:12:470:12:51

-was there any kind of eruption?

-Er...

-LAUGHTER

0:12:510:12:55

Anyway, here's your first game.

0:12:550:12:58

Seeing Double.

0:12:580:13:00

Count the named object on the left, add the numbers on the right.

0:13:000:13:05

You can have a warm-up.

0:13:050:13:07

Count the ice creams and add the numbers.

0:13:070:13:09

What do you think? What's your answer?

0:13:210:13:23

I think I got two ice creams.

0:13:230:13:24

-Two ice creams and...?

-I am going to say 11.

-11.

0:13:240:13:28

Two and 11. Is that right?

0:13:280:13:31

-Two and 12. Almost.

-Almost, yeah.

-Very close.

0:13:310:13:34

Brain, let's play the game.

0:13:340:13:36

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

-OK.

0:13:360:13:40

Your game starts now.

0:13:400:13:42

Count the carrots and add the numbers.

0:13:420:13:44

-Two and 11.

-Two and 11 is your answer. Is that correct?

0:13:530:13:58

It is indeed. Well done. Next game, please.

0:13:580:14:00

Count the dogs and add the numbers.

0:14:000:14:03

-Three and 21.

-Three dogs, 21, you're saying.

0:14:110:14:15

Three and 21, that's correct. Jolly good.

0:14:150:14:18

Next, please.

0:14:180:14:20

Count the rubber ducks and add the numbers.

0:14:200:14:23

-I lost that one.

-How many ducks do you think?

0:14:310:14:34

-Three.

-Three ducks.

0:14:340:14:36

-And what's the total?

-14?

-Three and 14, you think.

0:14:360:14:40

Let's see if that's right.

0:14:400:14:42

Three and 22. Right with the ducks, but wrong with the numbers.

0:14:420:14:45

-That's not a bad start.

-Not bad, not bad.

-Very good indeed.

0:14:450:14:49

-So, Brain, please can we have game number two?

-Of course, John.

0:14:490:14:52

Here's something to get your head spinning.

0:14:520:14:55

The second game is appropriately called

0:14:550:14:59

Head Spin.

0:14:590:15:00

Count the number of times the named object appears in the spinning wheels.

0:15:000:15:05

Here's a trial run of what I mean, Siobhian.

0:15:050:15:09

Count the red high heels.

0:15:090:15:11

-How many red high heels?

-Seven.

0:15:200:15:23

Seven, you're saying.

0:15:230:15:25

Are you correct? Yes, you are, indeed. Off we go, please, Brain.

0:15:250:15:29

Please remember I can only accept your first answer.

0:15:290:15:32

Your game starts now.

0:15:330:15:35

Count the white plates.

0:15:350:15:37

-How many white plates?

-I am going to say ten.

-Ten, you say.

0:15:460:15:49

Is that correct? It is, indeed. Jolly good.

0:15:490:15:53

Next one, please.

0:15:530:15:55

Count the kites.

0:15:550:15:58

-How many kites? Going a bit quicker there.

-Yeah, it was.

0:16:070:16:10

-I'm going to say 15.

-15, you think.

0:16:100:16:12

Is that correct?

0:16:120:16:14

-Ah!

-16.

0:16:140:16:15

-So close!

-Just one kite out. Oh, dear. So, the last one, please.

0:16:150:16:19

Count the yellow hard hats.

0:16:200:16:22

-How many hard hats went through?

-20?

0:16:320:16:35

20, you think.

0:16:350:16:37

Is that correct?

0:16:370:16:38

20, yes. Goodness me, because they were really spinning through.

0:16:380:16:42

-Is that just a guess or...?

-I tried. I tried to follow it as best I could.

0:16:420:16:46

-You certainly did well there.

-Thank you.

-Didn't she, Brain?

0:16:460:16:49

-Well, yes, I'll have to admit that she did.

-Thank you.

0:16:490:16:52

-Well done, Siobhian.

-Thank you, Brain.

0:16:520:16:55

You added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:16:550:16:57

This means Mental Gymnasts now have 36 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:16:570:17:03

-Jolly good. Well done, Siobhian.

-Thank you.

-Rejoin your team.

0:17:030:17:06

Thank you.

0:17:060:17:08

We only have one player left now,

0:17:080:17:10

so, Rachel, would you please come and join me?

0:17:100:17:13

APPLAUSE

0:17:130:17:16

How are you doing, Rachel?

0:17:160:17:18

I'm doing OK. A bit nervous about what's left.

0:17:180:17:21

See what comes up! Thanks!

0:17:210:17:23

Well, we've got Logic, Language and Memory still left.

0:17:230:17:28

So which one do you hope of those three will be yours?

0:17:280:17:32

I like language. Reading reports, writing reports is part of my job.

0:17:320:17:36

OK. Well, let's see what Zone you are going to play.

0:17:360:17:40

Fingers crossed for you it's Language. Brain, a Zone, please.

0:17:400:17:44

-Memory.

-It's Memory.

0:17:460:17:49

Oh, dear. But you never know.

0:17:490:17:52

-You never know, it might turn out to be your Zone.

-Yeah, could well be.

0:17:520:17:56

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

0:17:560:18:00

-Hello, Rachel.

-Hello, Brain.

-What star sign are you?

0:18:000:18:03

-Cancer.

-Correct. See, you're good at answering questions.

0:18:030:18:07

-Thank you!

-Here's your first game.

0:18:090:18:12

What's Cooking?

0:18:120:18:14

You will see different ingredients being added to a pot.

0:18:140:18:18

You must tell us how many of each went in. Have yourself a trial run.

0:18:180:18:23

Carrots, broccoli and red peppers.

0:18:360:18:39

Um... I was frantically counting on my hands.

0:18:390:18:43

So I got three peppers, so that narrows it down to C and D.

0:18:430:18:46

There were definitely two carr... C. Definitely two carrots - I'll say C.

0:18:460:18:51

-You're going to say C?

-Yes.

-Is that correct?

0:18:510:18:54

No, it was A. It was A.

0:18:540:18:57

-So...

-Missed that one.

0:18:570:19:00

Don't worry, you might find them easier when we get to play the game for real.

0:19:000:19:04

Can we do that, please, Brain?

0:19:040:19:06

Please remember I will only accept your first answer.

0:19:060:19:10

Rachel, your game starts now.

0:19:100:19:13

So what went into the pot?

0:19:270:19:29

Four broccoli, so C.

0:19:290:19:33

C, you're saying. OK, let's have a look.

0:19:330:19:36

You are correct. Yeah.

0:19:360:19:37

There you are. On to the next one, please.

0:19:370:19:40

What went in this time?

0:19:550:19:57

Four broccoli.

0:19:570:19:59

I'm not sure about the carrots.

0:19:590:20:02

Four broccoli, two onions.

0:20:020:20:04

-Two carrots. D.

-D, you are going for. Is Rachel correct?

0:20:040:20:09

Yes, you are, Rachel.

0:20:090:20:11

-Thank you.

-And one last one.

0:20:110:20:14

Which one this time?

0:20:290:20:31

Well, I thought there were three carrots, but there clearly wasn't.

0:20:310:20:34

-No.

-Um...

0:20:340:20:36

So I'm going with two carrots. There were four onions, so C.

0:20:360:20:40

-C?

-Yeah.

-One red pepper. Let's see if that's correct.

0:20:400:20:43

Yes, it is, well done.

0:20:430:20:46

Well, you're pretty good at observing what

0:20:460:20:49

-goes into the pot, aren't you?

-Yeah, I'll go with that one.

0:20:490:20:52

-So, Brain, the second game, please.

-Yes. Full house with that one, Rachel.

0:20:520:20:57

Here's your second game.

0:20:570:21:00

Forget Me Not.

0:21:000:21:02

Remember where the pictures were once they've disappeared.

0:21:020:21:06

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

0:21:060:21:09

Where are the Aston Martins?

0:21:180:21:21

Number one and number three.

0:21:210:21:23

The cars were number one and number three, you think.

0:21:230:21:26

And that is correct.

0:21:260:21:28

OK. Let's play the game properly.

0:21:280:21:31

Please remember I can only accept your first answer.

0:21:310:21:34

Your game starts now.

0:21:340:21:36

Where are the cars?

0:21:440:21:47

Number one and number six.

0:21:470:21:49

One and six.

0:21:490:21:50

Yes, you're good at car spotting!

0:21:520:21:55

-Thank you.

-Right. Number two game, please.

0:21:550:21:58

Where are the doughnuts?

0:22:050:22:09

Three, six and...

0:22:090:22:11

..four or seven? Three, six and four.

0:22:130:22:16

Three, six and four, you're saying.

0:22:160:22:18

-Yes. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:22:180:22:21

Here comes the last one.

0:22:210:22:23

Where are the blackbirds?

0:22:300:22:33

Three, six, nine and eight.

0:22:330:22:35

Oh, no. No, not quite. No.

0:22:390:22:41

Never mind, never mind.

0:22:410:22:45

-Outfoxed by the last one.

-Absolutely. No cars in that one!

0:22:450:22:49

But you did incredibly well, Rachel.

0:22:490:22:51

-I hope you enjoyed playing. What did you think, Brain?

-Well done, Rachel.

0:22:510:22:55

You were the best. I hope the rest of the team don't begrudge you that.

0:22:550:23:00

-Thank you.

-Rachel, you added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:23:000:23:04

This means, Mental Gymnasts,

0:23:040:23:07

you have finished with a grand total of 51 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:070:23:12

-APPLAUSE

-Congratulations, well done, Rachel.

0:23:120:23:15

Go back and join your team.

0:23:150:23:17

Well, we've finished the individual Zones now

0:23:170:23:20

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

0:23:200:23:24

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

0:23:240:23:28

Well, Mental Gymnasts, you were well named,

0:23:320:23:34

because you've managed to add 51 seconds to your Brain Bank.

0:23:340:23:38

Now, it's your chance to turn time into money.

0:23:380:23:41

Each of you needs to get two questions right within those 51 seconds.

0:23:410:23:45

Do that and you'll take home our jackpot of £3,000.

0:23:450:23:49

If you can't, there's still chance to win, because the Brain has

0:23:490:23:52

set aside a further two minutes for you to get the correct answers.

0:23:520:23:56

But, as the time counts down, so does the cash -

0:23:560:23:59

at the rate of £25 a second.

0:23:590:24:01

And, if you take too long, it'll run out.

0:24:010:24:04

Debbie, as captain, you've chosen the order of play.

0:24:040:24:07

Any reasoning behind that?

0:24:070:24:09

I'm nervous, I'm apprehensive and I wanted to get mine out the way.

0:24:090:24:13

Siobhian was quite happy with the pressure of being last. Yeah.

0:24:130:24:17

Rachel, I think, was like me.

0:24:170:24:19

Yeah, I'd been last previously, so Siobhian kindly offered to go.

0:24:190:24:23

-What about you, David?

-I'm a rose between two thorns, so...

0:24:230:24:26

LAUGHTER

0:24:260:24:28

Well, are you all ready? Because it's time to get serious.

0:24:280:24:32

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

0:24:320:24:36

Mental Gymnasts,

0:24:360:24:37

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

0:24:370:24:41

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

0:24:410:24:46

Beat me if you can.

0:24:460:24:48

Well there's a challenge for you. Can you beat The Brain?

0:24:480:24:52

As usual, we start with the player on the left. That's you, Debbie.

0:24:520:24:55

So I need two correct answers from you before we can pass on to the next player - that's Rachel -

0:24:550:24:59

and so on down the line. OK? Let's start the game.

0:24:590:25:03

Count the missing bricks.

0:25:080:25:11

10.

0:25:110:25:13

Correct!

0:25:130:25:14

Left or right hands?

0:25:140:25:15

Right, right, left.

0:25:170:25:19

Yes, Rachel.

0:25:190:25:21

What's in the pot?

0:25:250:25:27

-D.

-Correct.

0:25:270:25:30

What's the difference?

0:25:300:25:31

Pass.

0:25:380:25:41

Count the rubber ducks and add the numbers.

0:25:410:25:44

Nine and three.

0:25:480:25:50

Correct. David.

0:25:500:25:53

What time is it?

0:25:530:25:54

Twenty past two.

0:25:560:25:58

Yes.

0:25:580:26:00

Count the missing bricks.

0:26:020:26:04

14.

0:26:060:26:07

No.

0:26:070:26:09

Count the spades.

0:26:090:26:10

Five.

0:26:150:26:16

Correct.

0:26:160:26:18

Siobhian.

0:26:180:26:20

Where are the balloons?

0:26:220:26:24

One, five, nine.

0:26:270:26:29

Incorrect.

0:26:290:26:32

Left or right hands?

0:26:320:26:34

Left, left, right?

0:26:400:26:44

No.

0:26:440:26:45

What's the difference?

0:26:450:26:46

30 pence.

0:26:500:26:51

Correct.

0:26:510:26:53

What's in the pot?

0:26:580:27:01

C.

0:27:010:27:02

Yes. Stop the clock.

0:27:020:27:04

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:27:040:27:09

So, that's eight correct answers. Congratulations, you've won £1,375.

0:27:090:27:15

CHEERING

0:27:150:27:18

-Your heart was beating away before.

-Oh, that was just awful.

0:27:180:27:21

Brilliant, but awful. Yeah, yeah. I'm so pleased. I'm so happy.

0:27:210:27:24

Congratulations to you. What do you think, Brain?

0:27:240:27:26

Well, they did very, very well. You beat me fair and square.

0:27:260:27:30

You can afford a bottle of champagne,

0:27:300:27:31

though I don't think any of you need it.

0:27:310:27:35

Well, thank you, everybody at home, for watching today, as well.

0:27:350:27:38

I hope you enjoyed playing along.

0:27:380:27:39

Now, it's goodbye from the Mental Gymnasts.

0:27:390:27:42

ALL: Goodbye.

0:27:420:27:43

-From the Brain.

-Goodbye.

-And from me. See you again next time.

0:27:430:27:47

You saw how the team did, but what about you?

0:27:490:27:52

Did you get those posers I set at the start of the show? Here's a reminder.

0:27:520:27:57

What's the difference in the value?

0:27:570:27:59

The answer is...

0:28:010:28:05

And the second one? Are they left or right hands?

0:28:050:28:09

The answer is...

0:28:120:28:15

Don't forget, practice makes perfect,

0:28:150:28:17

so remember to sharpen your wits by watching next time on Beat The Brain.

0:28:170:28:22

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.

A team of family and friends from Carlisle see if they have the combined mental muscle to beat the Brain and win the jackpot of £3,000.
