Hello, it's me, The Brain.

0:00:030:00:05

These are the kind of challenges our team will face today.

0:00:050:00:08

Have a go at home.

0:00:080:00:09

What's the word in the middle?

0:00:120:00:14

Try one more.

0:00:190:00:20

Count the ice creams.

0:00:220:00:24

I'll relieve your anxiety by giving you the answers at the end of the show.

0:00:300:00:34

Now let's see if four brains are better than one -

0:00:340:00:37

it's Beat The Brain.

0:00:370:00:39

APPLAUSE

0:00:550:00:57

Please welcome a man who can put his feet under my table any time.

0:00:570:01:01

-It's John Craven.

-Well, thank you very much.

0:01:010:01:04

Welcome once again to Beat The Brain.

0:01:040:01:06

On this show, you don't need general knowledge to play,

0:01:060:01:09

just a sharp, perceptive mind.

0:01:090:01:11

Over the next half hour, our four contestants will face

0:01:110:01:14

arduous puzzles and demanding challenges

0:01:140:01:17

all designed so that you can join in at home, as well.

0:01:170:01:20

Let's say hello to the brain that masterminds this mental marathon.

0:01:200:01:25

-How are you today, Brain?

-I'm well, I suppose, John.

0:01:250:01:28

But wish I was your tie so I could hang around your neck all day.

0:01:280:01:31

HE LAUGHS

0:01:310:01:32

-I'm ready to play the game.

-Well, so are our team. Let's meet them now.

0:01:320:01:36

Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:360:01:38

I'm Ian and I'm a charity fundraiser.

0:01:380:01:41

I'm Monica and I'm a learning-support assistant.

0:01:410:01:44

I'm John and I'm retired.

0:01:440:01:47

I'm Janet, I'm the team captain and I'm a tax accountant.

0:01:470:01:50

-APPLAUSE

-Well, welcome, everybody.

0:01:500:01:52

And Janet is the team captain.

0:01:520:01:54

What name have you chosen for your team?

0:01:540:01:56

We're called the Freezywater Wets.

0:01:560:01:58

The Freezywater Wets, why on Earth?

0:01:580:02:01

We actually met when Ian came to be the pastor

0:02:010:02:04

of the Baptist Church that John and I attended at the time.

0:02:040:02:07

And baptism, in the Baptist Church, is full immersion in water

0:02:070:02:11

so we were wet.

0:02:110:02:12

-Was the church in a place called Freezywater?

-Indeed, yes.

-Right.

0:02:120:02:16

-And are you all related?

-John and I are married.

-Yep.

0:02:160:02:19

Ian and Monica are married.

0:02:190:02:21

And we have, between us, known each other for 30 odd years.

0:02:210:02:24

All the very best today. Let's hope you enjoy trying to beat The Brain.

0:02:240:02:28

Here's how it works. The show's brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:280:02:32

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

0:02:370:02:40

for you to play today.

0:02:400:02:41

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

0:02:410:02:45

-which of your players will do best in each of the Zones. OK?

-OK.

0:02:450:02:48

You will face a series of questions in each Zone with each correct

0:02:480:02:52

answer adding three seconds to what we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:520:02:55

And the more you build up,

0:02:550:02:56

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

0:02:560:03:00

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

0:03:000:03:03

So, Freezywater Wets, are you ready to play?

0:03:030:03:06

-ALL:

-Yes.

0:03:060:03:08

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

0:03:080:03:11

So, Brain, the Zone, please.

0:03:110:03:13

Language it is. So, Janet, who are you nominating?

0:03:180:03:21

Would you like that one, Monica?

0:03:210:03:23

-MONICA:

-Me or Ian was going to do Language.

0:03:230:03:25

-I don't mind which way. Do you want to do it?

-OK, I'll do Language.

0:03:250:03:27

-JANET:

-It will be Monica, then.

-OK, Monica. Well, please, join me.

0:03:270:03:30

APPLAUSE

0:03:300:03:32

-Are you looking forward to this or not?

-Very much.

-Good.

0:03:340:03:38

-I like using language.

-Do you speak various languages?

0:03:380:03:42

Yes. As well as English, French and Russian fluently

0:03:420:03:45

and I speak bits of other languages. I speak bits of Polish and Italian.

0:03:450:03:49

Bit of modern Hebrew.

0:03:490:03:50

-So, you obviously enjoy playing around with words.

-I love it.

0:03:500:03:53

-Yes, and I love languages generally.

-Right, are you ready?

0:03:530:03:57

-No, but I'll give it a go.

-Let's play the Language Zone now.

0:03:570:04:00

You'll play two games in this Zone.

0:04:000:04:02

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each.

0:04:020:04:05

So, Brain, what's the first game?

0:04:050:04:08

-Hello, Monica.

-Hello, Brain.

-You were Brain of Enfield once, weren't you?

0:04:080:04:14

-Yes, that's true.

-You got a question wrong, what was it?

0:04:140:04:17

Oh, they asked what a shih tzu was

0:04:170:04:19

and I thought it was something to eat rather than a dog.

0:04:190:04:23

-Monica, I'm never letting you order a takeaway for me.

-Very wise.

0:04:230:04:28

Here's your first game.

0:04:280:04:29

Find the word that fits between the other two.

0:04:320:04:35

Each dash represents a letter.

0:04:350:04:37

To help you out, have a trial run.

0:04:370:04:39

-Split.

-Split, you think. Banana split, split second.

0:04:450:04:48

Yep, I think so.

0:04:480:04:49

That was answered in a split second, wasn't it? So, well done.

0:04:490:04:53

-Are you ready to play for real?

-Yes. Let's try.

-Off we go.

0:04:530:04:56

You have only 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:04:560:04:59

Monica, your game starts now.

0:04:590:05:02

-Net.

-Net, you think.

0:05:040:05:06

-Mosquito net, net curtain.

-Yes, well done.

0:05:060:05:08

Next one.

0:05:080:05:10

-Oil, don't think it's oil.

-Oil, you're saying.

0:05:130:05:16

Oh, greenhouse gas, gas leak.

0:05:160:05:18

Gas, yes, that's correct.

0:05:180:05:21

One more to go and 25 seconds left.

0:05:210:05:23

Oh, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine...

0:05:230:05:27

Oh, heavens. Split...

0:05:270:05:28

SHE SIGHS

0:05:290:05:31

Keep thinking split second, that's not right.

0:05:320:05:34

-Split time, trait?

-Ten seconds to go.

0:05:360:05:39

Oh.

0:05:390:05:40

-It is a long word.

-I'm just trying to think, genetic trait...

0:05:430:05:46

-Guess quickly.

-Can't think of anything, genetic?

-No.

0:05:460:05:49

Let's find out what it was.

0:05:490:05:51

Split personality, personality trait.

0:05:520:05:55

-Oh, I'm so sorry.

-So, you did very well on the first two.

0:05:550:05:58

-So, ready for the second game?

-Yes, indeed.

0:05:580:06:01

-Could we have it, please, Brain?

-Of course. Here's the second game.

0:06:010:06:05

Rearrange the newspaper cuttings to form a word.

0:06:080:06:11

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

0:06:110:06:13

-What word...

-Jasmine.

0:06:150:06:17

-Jasmine.

-J-A-S-M-I-N-E.

0:06:170:06:20

Yeah, I think you could well be right. You are indeed.

0:06:200:06:23

-OK, so that was just the test.

-Yeah.

-Let's put you to the real test now.

0:06:230:06:27

-Thank you.

-Off we go.

-You have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:06:270:06:32

Your game starts now.

0:06:320:06:34

-Version.

-Version.

0:06:380:06:39

Yes, well done. Next one.

0:06:390:06:41

Splits.

0:06:440:06:45

Splits, yes.

0:06:450:06:47

30 seconds left.

0:06:500:06:51

Oh, heavens.

0:06:570:06:59

15 seconds left.

0:07:050:07:06

-Hetaeicst.

-Hm?

0:07:090:07:12

Hetaeicst. H-E-T-A-E-I-C-S-T... No.

0:07:120:07:15

No, it's not that, I don't think. A guess?

0:07:150:07:19

Out of time, I'm afraid. Did anybody else in the team get that?

0:07:200:07:24

-I think it's aesthetic.

-Aesthetic. Let's have a look and see.

0:07:240:07:28

You're right.

0:07:290:07:30

Well done, there, Ian. Your husband beat you on that last one.

0:07:300:07:34

-Absolutely.

-But, unfortunately, he can't get any seconds.

-Oh!

0:07:340:07:38

HE LAUGHS

0:07:380:07:40

So, Brain, what's your verdict on Monica's performance?

0:07:400:07:42

Monica did very well which, of course,

0:07:420:07:45

is very disappointing news for me.

0:07:450:07:47

Every second counts in the Final, Monica

0:07:470:07:50

and you've just upped the chances by getting 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:07:500:07:53

This means Freezywater Wets have 12 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:07:530:07:58

-So far, so good, then.

-APPLAUSE

0:07:580:07:59

-Thank you.

-Thank you for playing, Monica.

0:07:590:08:01

-Thank you so much.

-If you'd rejoin the team.

0:08:010:08:03

So, time to find out what our next Zone is going to be

0:08:030:08:06

and who will be taking it on. So, Brain, the Zone, please.

0:08:060:08:09

-Multi-tasking it is. So, Janet?

-That one's mine.

0:08:150:08:19

Nobody else wants it so it's mine.

0:08:190:08:20

LAUGHTER

0:08:200:08:21

Well, that's very brave of you as captain.

0:08:220:08:25

When nobody else wants it you're going to take it on.

0:08:250:08:27

So, come and join me.

0:08:270:08:28

APPLAUSE

0:08:280:08:30

-So, Janet, you've been a Mensa member.

-I have.

0:08:320:08:35

-So, you enjoy testing your brain in all kinds of strange ways?

-I do.

0:08:350:08:38

What are you looking forward to in Multi-tasking? I mean, do you...

0:08:380:08:42

-Hopefully...

-Do you think you're a good multitasker?

0:08:420:08:44

I'm a woman so that makes me a multitasker, I feel.

0:08:440:08:46

-That's what women say.

-That's right.

0:08:460:08:48

-I'm out to prove it.

-Yeah.

-I think it's having children.

0:08:480:08:51

And having to keep an eye on what they're doing as well as doing

0:08:510:08:54

whatever needs to be done around the house.

0:08:540:08:56

That makes a big difference.

0:08:560:08:57

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

0:08:570:09:00

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

0:09:000:09:03

-Hello, Janet.

-Hello, Brain.

-Here is your first game.

0:09:030:09:07

Count the named object on the left. Add the numbers on the right.

0:09:110:09:15

To give you some practice, have a trial run.

0:09:150:09:18

Count the ice creams and add the numbers.

0:09:180:09:20

So, how many ice creams and what was the total on the right?

0:09:290:09:31

-12 on the right, three ice creams, I think.

-Let's see if that's correct.

0:09:310:09:34

It was indeed.

0:09:360:09:37

-Right. Ready to play?

-Ready.

-Off we go, then.

0:09:370:09:40

-Please remember I can only accept your first answer.

-OK.

0:09:400:09:44

Your game starts now.

0:09:440:09:46

Count the carrots and add the numbers.

0:09:460:09:49

-How many carrots?

-Two carrots.

-Two carrots and what was the total?

-11.

0:09:560:10:00

2 and 11, you're saying. Is that correct?

0:10:000:10:02

It is indeed, well done. Very good start. Onto the next one.

0:10:030:10:07

Count the dogs and add the numbers.

0:10:080:10:10

-So, how many dogs?

-Five dogs.

-Five dogs. And the total?

-19.

0:10:200:10:24

5 and 19. Is that correct?

0:10:240:10:26

It is, indeed. This really is multi-tasking, isn't it?

0:10:270:10:30

So, one more for you, Janet.

0:10:300:10:32

Count the rubber ducks and add the numbers.

0:10:330:10:35

-How many rubber ducks?

-Five.

-Five.

0:10:450:10:47

-And the total?

-22.

-5 and 22.

0:10:470:10:51

Is that right?

0:10:510:10:52

-Ah!

-Oh, 4 and 22. Just missed on that one.

0:10:520:10:56

Where did I see the other duck?

0:10:560:10:58

-The rubber ducks fooled you.

-Indeed, yes.

0:10:580:11:01

-So, ready for game two?

-OK.

0:11:010:11:03

-Off we go.

-Here's your second game.

0:11:030:11:05

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

0:11:070:11:12

Have a trial run.

0:11:120:11:13

Count the corns on the cob.

0:11:140:11:16

-How many corns on the cob?

-I saw seven.

-You saw seven.

0:11:260:11:30

What did the answer see?

0:11:300:11:32

It saw seven as well, well done.

0:11:320:11:34

-Ready for the game?

-OK, ready.

-Let's play for real.

0:11:340:11:37

Remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:11:370:11:40

Your game starts now.

0:11:400:11:42

Count the snowflakes.

0:11:420:11:44

-How many snowflakes?

-Nine.

-Nine, you think. Is that right?

0:11:540:11:59

It is, indeed. Next one, please. They get faster now.

0:11:590:12:02

Count the pears.

0:12:040:12:06

How many pears did you spot?

0:12:160:12:19

-I made it 17.

-17, you think.

0:12:190:12:21

Is that correct?

0:12:210:12:22

-Oh!

-One out. One out.

0:12:220:12:25

-Ready for the last one?

-Yep.

0:12:260:12:28

Count the horses.

0:12:300:12:31

-How many horses?

-I made that 17.

-17.

0:12:430:12:46

See if that's correct.

0:12:460:12:48

It is! That time it was right.

0:12:480:12:49

-That was a worry.

-Yes. So, well done. Well done, Janet.

-Thank you.

0:12:510:12:55

-And she did all right, didn't she, Brain?

-Absolutely.

0:12:550:12:58

You and Monica are neck and neck.

0:12:580:13:00

Because, Janet, you added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:13:000:13:04

Which means, Freezywater Wets, you have 24 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:13:040:13:08

APPLAUSE

0:13:080:13:09

-Well done, Captain Janet.

-Thank you very much.

-Please rejoin your team.

0:13:090:13:13

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

0:13:140:13:18

Brain, the Zone, please.

0:13:180:13:20

Observation it is. So, Janet, is it John or Ian to do the observing?

0:13:250:13:30

-I think...

-Why is everybody looking at me?!

0:13:300:13:32

LAUGHTER

0:13:320:13:33

-We're hoping you're going to be observant.

-OK.

0:13:350:13:38

What do you think, John? Are you happy to take it on?

0:13:380:13:40

-It'd appear to be me, yes.

-Yes?

0:13:400:13:42

Well, come and join me, then, in the Observation Zone.

0:13:420:13:45

APPLAUSE

0:13:450:13:46

Nice to see you, John.

0:13:480:13:49

Now, I heard a whisper that you would prefer Orientation.

0:13:490:13:53

Whenever we go out anywhere I always seem to have this uncanny

0:13:530:13:57

ability of knowing where I'm going.

0:13:570:14:00

And I can usually find north.

0:14:000:14:02

I think it's the same principle as pigeons

0:14:020:14:05

who have magnets in their head.

0:14:050:14:06

Have you got a magnet in your head?

0:14:060:14:08

I've got a steel plate, not a magnet, so it must be that.

0:14:080:14:10

-So, that seems to work, it points you to the north?

-Yes.

0:14:100:14:13

-Once you know where north is then it's fairly easy to...

-Good.

0:14:130:14:15

Well, let's see how you do.

0:14:150:14:17

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

0:14:170:14:21

-Hello, John.

-Hello, Brain.

-I've never met a human compass before.

0:14:210:14:25

-Well, there's always a first time.

-Here is your first game.

0:14:250:14:27

Count the number of times the lights come on. Have yourself a trial run.

0:14:310:14:35

-How many times did the lights flash?

-19.

-19, you reckon. Is that right?

0:14:520:14:56

15.

0:14:580:14:59

-So are you ready to play?

-I am ready, yes.

-OK.

0:14:590:15:01

Brain, bring on the game.

0:15:010:15:04

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:15:040:15:08

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

0:15:080:15:11

The game starts now.

0:15:110:15:13

How many times did the lights come on?

0:15:270:15:30

-18.

-18, you say? Is that right?

0:15:300:15:34

It is, because they come up very quickly.

0:15:340:15:37

Let's move on to the next one.

0:15:370:15:39

How many times?

0:15:520:15:55

-19.

-19 you're saying, John. Is that right?

0:15:550:15:59

-18. One out.

-Oh, dear.

-Get ready for the third one.

-Ready.

0:15:590:16:04

Can we have it, please?

0:16:040:16:05

How many are you saying?

0:16:220:16:24

-22.

-22. Is that right?

0:16:240:16:28

17. Ah. Oh, dear.

0:16:280:16:31

They're very, very hard. I find incredibly hard, actually.

0:16:310:16:35

Ready for the next game?

0:16:350:16:36

-Yes.

-Right. Bring it on, please.

0:16:360:16:38

Here's your second game.

0:16:380:16:40

Short-changed. What's the difference in value between the two totals?

0:16:410:16:46

Have a trial run.

0:16:460:16:48

What do you think the difference is there, John?

0:16:520:16:55

-Er, seven. 7p.

-7p, you think? Is that right?

0:17:000:17:04

-3p it was. OK. Ready for it?

-I am.

-Off we go.

0:17:050:17:11

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:17:110:17:14

Your game starts now.

0:17:140:17:17

What's the difference, do you reckon?

0:17:290:17:31

-Er... Pass.

-Pass that one. Next one?

0:17:310:17:34

50p it was.

0:17:340:17:36

-Er, £1.12.

-£1.12.

-£1.12.

0:17:450:17:48

£1.50.

0:17:480:17:50

You've got 12 seconds left for the last one.

0:17:500:17:53

Five seconds. Have a guess.

0:17:570:18:00

-73p.

-73p. 9p.

0:18:000:18:03

-Oh, you obviously don't count your change!

-I obviously don't, no.

0:18:030:18:06

-Pay by card, you see, that's the thing.

-Yeah.

0:18:060:18:09

-I hope you enjoyed playing the game.

-I did, yes.

-Brain!

0:18:090:18:12

John, you added three seconds in that Zone, which means in total,

0:18:120:18:15

Freezywater Wets have 27 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:18:150:18:19

Right. Well, John. Very nice to meet you.

0:18:190:18:22

Thank you very much.

0:18:220:18:23

Hope you enjoyed coming up, even if you didn't score that many.

0:18:230:18:27

-Ian.

-Yes?

0:18:270:18:28

-You're our last player left.

-Yes.

0:18:280:18:30

So why don't you come and join me and we'll find out

0:18:300:18:33

which of the three remaining Zones you'll be playing.

0:18:330:18:36

Good to see you again and a lot depends on your broad shoulders now.

0:18:380:18:42

So I make it we've got three Zones left.

0:18:420:18:44

We've got Logic, Orientation and Memory.

0:18:440:18:47

Which one don't you want of those three?

0:18:470:18:49

I think Orientation is the one I don't particularly want,

0:18:490:18:51

because I'm not always sure which is my left hand and which is my right.

0:18:510:18:54

-Right.

-I think of the three, Logic would be the one I would most like.

0:18:540:18:58

Well, let's see what's going to happen.

0:18:580:19:00

Brain, please, which Zone is Ian going to play?

0:19:000:19:04

-Memory.

-It's Memory.

-We'll see what we can do.

0:19:070:19:09

-You don't find that too much?

-No, I don't mind that too much at all.

0:19:090:19:12

OK, it's fine. Well, let's play. The Memory Zone.

0:19:120:19:15

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

0:19:150:19:18

-Hello, Ian.

-Hello, Brain.

-Here's your first game.

-Thank you.

-Forget me not.

0:19:180:19:24

Remember where the pictures were once they've disappeared.

0:19:240:19:28

-Have yourself a trial run.

-Thank you.

0:19:280:19:31

Where are the pound coins?

0:19:370:19:38

Three and five.

0:19:380:19:40

Three and five, you're saying, Ian? Are you right? Yes, you're right.

0:19:400:19:44

Well done. Yeah.

0:19:440:19:45

I think it's a good idea to keep your eyes fixed on that

0:19:450:19:48

-grid all the time.

-Yes, yes.

-Right. Ready to play?

-I'm ready to play.

0:19:480:19:51

-Can we have the game, please?

-Your game starts now.

0:19:510:19:55

-Where are the martinis?

-One and five.

-One and five, you're saying.

0:20:010:20:07

-Is that correct?

-It is.

-You've got a good eye for martinis.

0:20:070:20:11

-Oh, absolutely, yes.

-Let's move on to the next one.

0:20:110:20:14

Where are the cars?

0:20:210:20:23

-One, five and nine.

-One, five and nine.

0:20:230:20:27

-Is that correct? It is.

-I like cars as well.

-You like cars.

0:20:270:20:31

OK, so here comes the third one.

0:20:310:20:33

-Where are the balloons?

-One, two, 11 and eight.

-That was quick.

0:20:390:20:45

One, two, 11 and eight. Is that right? One, two...

0:20:450:20:48

Well done, you. Three out of three. Maximum number of seconds.

0:20:480:20:52

-So could we have the second game, please?

-Very speedy, Ian.

-Thank you.

0:20:520:20:57

Here's your second game. Follow the leader.

0:20:570:21:01

Repeat the order in which the colours flash.

0:21:010:21:03

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

0:21:030:21:06

-Out of those eight colours, which four flashed up?

-OK.

0:21:110:21:14

That's pink, white, blue, and black.

0:21:140:21:17

Pink, white, blue, and black, you're saying. Is that correct?

0:21:170:21:20

-It is indeed.

-Thank you very much.

0:21:200:21:22

OK. So you've got the hang of this one.

0:21:220:21:24

-I think I've got the hang of this.

-Yeah? Ready to play the game?

-Yes.

0:21:240:21:28

-Off we go.

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

0:21:280:21:32

-OK.

-Your game starts now.

0:21:320:21:34

White, pink, purple, green, black.

0:21:410:21:45

-Ah!

-Oh, no, no.

0:21:480:21:51

-Nearly.

-Nearly. Nearly right.

0:21:510:21:53

-Purple was in the wrong place, wasn't it?

-Yes.

0:21:530:21:56

Right, next one.

0:21:560:21:58

Ooh! Er, yellow, purple..

0:22:040:22:07

..er, yellow, white, green, pink.

0:22:110:22:13

Let's have a look.

0:22:160:22:17

-No.

-Ah! Close again.

-Yeah. Green, yellow, white.

0:22:170:22:22

Yes.

0:22:220:22:24

Off we go with the third one.

0:22:240:22:25

That's purple, blue,

0:22:320:22:35

yellow...

0:22:350:22:37

..er...ah, eee, dah-dah-dah -

0:22:390:22:41

white, green, black.

0:22:410:22:43

And there's another one, probably. Yes. There is.

0:22:440:22:47

-And the red at the end.

-And there's red at the end. Yeah.

0:22:470:22:50

You'd remembered the first few and then...

0:22:500:22:52

-I remembered the first few and then it's the other ones towards the end that get tricky.

-So, Brain?

0:22:520:22:56

You did well though, Ian, because you added nine seconds in that Zone,

0:22:560:23:00

which means Freezywater Wets -

0:23:000:23:02

you have finished with a grand total of 36 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:020:23:07

-36 seconds.

-We can do a lot with that.

0:23:070:23:10

You can indeed, so please rejoin the team.

0:23:100:23:13

Well, we've finished the individual Zones.

0:23:130:23:16

It's now time for our team to try to Beat The Brain one last time

0:23:160:23:21

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

0:23:210:23:24

So, Freezywater Wets,

0:23:280:23:30

you have built up 36 seconds in your Brain Bank and your challenge

0:23:300:23:34

now is for each of you in turn to answer two questions correctly.

0:23:340:23:37

That's eight in total and if you can do that within your 36 seconds,

0:23:370:23:41

you'll take home our top prize of £3,000.

0:23:410:23:45

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

0:23:450:23:48

The Brain has given you two further minutes to get those answers in

0:23:480:23:52

but as the time ticks down, so does the money -

0:23:520:23:55

at the rate of £25 a second and the longer you take, the less

0:23:550:23:59

there is to win and if you take too long, you win nothing at all.

0:23:590:24:02

OK?

0:24:020:24:04

Janet, as the team captain, you've chosen the order in which

0:24:040:24:07

your team are going to play so what's your logic behind that?

0:24:070:24:11

Well, we thought we would go in the order of the questions

0:24:110:24:14

that came up first time round,

0:24:140:24:16

so we're in the same order as we played the first round.

0:24:160:24:19

So are you happy, Monica, to be going first?

0:24:190:24:22

At least I get it over and done with!

0:24:220:24:25

-That's the logic behind it, as long as I don't hold the team up for too long.

-OK.

0:24:250:24:29

Are we ready? It's time to get serious. Let's start today's final.

0:24:290:24:33

Over to you, Brain.

0:24:330:24:35

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

0:24:350:24:39

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

0:24:390:24:43

-Freezywater Wets, beat me if you can.

-So that's the challenge.

0:24:430:24:48

-Can you beat the Brain?

-ALL: Yes.

0:24:480:24:50

Well, we'll see if that confidence plays out.

0:24:500:24:53

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

0:24:530:24:57

I need two correct answers from you before I can

0:24:570:24:59

pass on to the next player, and so on down the line. OK?

0:24:590:25:02

The best of luck. Let's start the final.

0:25:020:25:05

Count the suns.

0:25:080:25:09

Six.

0:25:150:25:17

Correct. What is the word?

0:25:170:25:19

Survivor.

0:25:190:25:20

Yes. Janet.

0:25:200:25:22

-Ten.

-No.

0:25:270:25:29

What's the missing word?

0:25:300:25:31

Ivy.

0:25:310:25:33

Correct.

0:25:330:25:35

Which colours match the sounds?

0:25:390:25:40

Green, white, blue, purple, pink.

0:25:420:25:44

Incorrect.

0:25:460:25:47

What is the word?

0:25:480:25:49

-Rainbow.

-Yes. John?

0:25:570:25:59

Eight.

0:26:020:26:03

No. What word in the middle?

0:26:060:26:08

Flare.

0:26:080:26:10

Where are the blackbirds?

0:26:170:26:18

Three, five, and seven.

0:26:180:26:21

-No.

-Count the bananas and add the numbers.

0:26:210:26:25

Two and nine.

0:26:290:26:31

Yes. Ian.

0:26:310:26:32

What's the difference?

0:26:340:26:35

-4p.

-Correct.

0:26:390:26:42

Count the yellow cups.

0:26:420:26:43

-Six.

-No.

0:26:480:26:50

What is the word?

0:26:500:26:52

-Genius.

-Stop the clock.

0:26:520:26:54

Well done.

0:26:540:26:57

Well, Wets, you've got eight correct answers. Congratulations on that.

0:26:570:27:01

You've won £1,275.

0:27:010:27:03

ALL: Wow! Fantastic. Wow, yes! Well done!

0:27:030:27:07

Oh, that's gorgeous.

0:27:070:27:08

That can't be bad, can it?

0:27:080:27:10

-So Captain Janet, you must be proud of your team?

-Very much so, yes.

0:27:120:27:15

I was starting to get a bit worried.

0:27:150:27:16

-You were really counting down then. 51 seconds left.

-We were.

0:27:160:27:20

But you did it. They did well, didn't they, Brain?

0:27:200:27:23

Well, that was a very close shave and you beat me, Freezywater Wets,

0:27:230:27:27

But I've still got my sweet Johnny Craven, so I have no regrets!

0:27:270:27:33

THEY LAUGH

0:27:330:27:35

Well, and thank you all for watching at home today.

0:27:350:27:38

I hope you enjoyed playing along, got the games right.

0:27:380:27:41

-For now, though, it's goodbye from Freezywater Wets.

-ALL: Bye.

0:27:410:27:45

-It's goodbye from the Brain.

-Goodbye.

0:27:450:27:47

And from me. See you next time we play Beat The Brain.

0:27:470:27:52

Before you go, let's see the answers to the questions

0:27:520:27:56

I set you at home at the start of the show.

0:27:560:27:59

What's the word in the middle?

0:27:590:28:01

The answer is night. And what about the second game?

0:28:040:28:09

Count the ice creams.

0:28:090:28:11

The answer is eight.

0:28:160:28:19

Whether you got these right or wrong, you can always

0:28:190:28:22

improve your intellect by watching us next time on Beat The Brain.

0:28:220:28:27

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.

Two couples from Hertfordshire who are close friends put their minds together in an attempt to beat the Brain and win £3,000.
