Hello, it's me, The Brain.

0:00:020:00:05

Have a go at solving the kind of puzzles

0:00:050:00:07

I'll be posing to our team today.

0:00:070:00:09

What's the phrase or saying?

0:00:120:00:14

Here's one more.

0:00:190:00:21

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

0:00:220:00:26

I'll put you out of your misery at the end of the show,

0:00:290:00:32

when I reveal the answers.

0:00:320:00:34

Let's see if today's team have all the answers,

0:00:340:00:36

as they attempt to Beat The Brain.

0:00:360:00:39

Please welcome a man who's the perfect blend of charm

0:00:570:01:00

and wisdom, John Craven. APPLAUSE

0:01:000:01:02

Wow, thank you and welcome to Beat The Brain.

0:01:020:01:05

Your daily dose of puzzles and problems designed to

0:01:050:01:09

stimulate your little grey cells.

0:01:090:01:11

Let's say hello to our genial genius, The Brain.

0:01:110:01:14

Hello, John. Yes, I'm a genius, it's true.

0:01:140:01:17

But genial? Never.

0:01:170:01:19

-I'm in a fighting mood today. Ready for battle.

-Wow.

0:01:190:01:22

Is that just scare tactics or will our team today manage

0:01:220:01:25

to Beat The Brain? Let's meet them now.

0:01:250:01:28

I'm Claire and I'm an airline ground supervisor.

0:01:280:01:31

I'm Helen and I'm a registered nurse.

0:01:310:01:35

I'm George and I'm a hotel owner.

0:01:350:01:37

I'm Sophie. I'm the team captain and I'm a shop manager.

0:01:370:01:41

Welcome to the show. Now, you're calling your team Wild Rovers,

0:01:420:01:45

so why is that, Captain Sophie?

0:01:450:01:47

We all like to travel, and George is from Greece,

0:01:470:01:51

and I live and work in Greece as well.

0:01:510:01:54

So we've all got the travelling bug.

0:01:540:01:57

So Wild Rovers really works, doesn't it?

0:01:570:01:59

-An old Irish song as well.

-Indeed, and our roots are Irish,

0:01:590:02:04

so it fits in well.

0:02:040:02:05

And how are you all connected then, talking of roots?

0:02:050:02:08

Well, Helen's my mother and Claire is my sister.

0:02:080:02:12

And George is my other half.

0:02:120:02:15

-Are you ready to play the game?

-Yes.

-Yes, we are.

0:02:150:02:17

Well, this is how it works.

0:02:170:02:19

The show's Brain is divided into six Zones.

0:02:190:02:21

Now, the Brain will select four of those six Zones

0:02:270:02:29

for you to play today.

0:02:290:02:31

Sophie, as captain, you must decide which person you think will be

0:02:310:02:35

best for answering each of the Zones, OK?

0:02:350:02:38

You're playing for time instead of points,

0:02:380:02:40

with every correct answer adding three seconds to your total.

0:02:400:02:43

What we call your Brain Bank.

0:02:430:02:45

And the more time you build up in the bank,

0:02:450:02:47

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

0:02:470:02:50

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

0:02:500:02:52

So, Wild Rovers, are you ready to play?

0:02:540:02:56

Yes, we are.

0:02:560:02:58

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

0:02:580:03:01

So, Brain, Zone, please.

0:03:010:03:03

-So, Sophie, who do you think might be best at that?

-Oh...

0:03:090:03:12

I don't know which one would be good at Multitasking.

0:03:120:03:16

-So I think George would be the one to do that.

-George.

0:03:160:03:19

Well, George, come and join me, then, in the Multitasking Zone.

0:03:190:03:22

APPLAUSE

0:03:220:03:24

-Good to see you, George.

-Good to see you, John.

-And you're from Greece.

0:03:260:03:30

-Yes.

-Whereabouts in Greece?

-I'm from Ios island.

0:03:300:03:32

It's an island in Cyclades, very close to Santorini.

0:03:320:03:35

A beautiful island.

0:03:350:03:37

A very beautiful island with magnificent beaches.

0:03:370:03:40

And do you agree with Sophie that you're the one to do Multitasking?

0:03:400:03:44

Yes. One of the things I was doing

0:03:440:03:46

when I was a bit younger was playing online games,

0:03:460:03:49

and I was playing real-time strategy,

0:03:490:03:52

which actually requires multitasking a lot.

0:03:520:03:55

Let's see how you do Multitasking against The Brain.

0:03:550:03:58

-Let's see how I do.

-Now, you'll be playing two games in the Zone.

0:03:580:04:02

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each,

0:04:020:04:04

so, Brain, what's the first game?

0:04:040:04:07

-Hello, George.

-Hello, Brain.

-I like the way you talk.

0:04:070:04:10

Can you say "Brain, you're wonderful" in Greek?

0:04:100:04:14

-Yeah, it's gefalos.

-Oh...

0:04:140:04:17

Ahem. Anyway, must get on. Here's your first game.

0:04:170:04:21

George, count the number of times each arrow passes its needle.

0:04:240:04:29

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

0:04:290:04:32

-So what do you say?

-It's six and one.

0:04:430:04:45

-Six and one, you're saying?

-Yes.

0:04:450:04:48

Let's see if that's correct.

0:04:480:04:50

-It is, indeed. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:04:500:04:53

-Ready to play?

-Ready to play.

-Off we go.

0:04:530:04:55

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:04:550:04:59

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

0:04:590:05:03

Your game starts now.

0:05:030:05:04

-It's two and two.

-Two and two.

0:05:110:05:13

Let's have a look. That was an easy one to start with.

0:05:150:05:18

-Yeah, it was.

-It gets harder. Next one, please.

0:05:180:05:20

-It's five and one.

-Five and one.

0:05:280:05:31

-That's correct as well. Here comes your final one.

-OK.

0:05:320:05:36

-It's two and six.

-Two and six. Let's see if that's right.

0:05:450:05:49

-It is, indeed. So no problem with that.

-No problem with that.

0:05:490:05:53

A very good start for your team, George. Next game, please.

0:05:530:05:56

Full house there, George. I'm already getting into a bad mood.

0:05:560:06:00

Well, it's going to be harder for you in the next game.

0:06:000:06:04

THE BRAIN GROWLS

0:06:040:06:07

Let me take you on a journey. Here's the second game.

0:06:070:06:09

George, tell me how many people are left on the bus,

0:06:120:06:15

not including the driver.

0:06:150:06:17

I'll give you a trial run.

0:06:170:06:19

-How many people left on the bus?

-One.

-One, you're saying.

0:06:300:06:33

Is that correct?

0:06:330:06:35

-It is, indeed. Yes. Right. Ready to play?

-Yes.

0:06:350:06:39

-Ready to play.

-Off we go.

0:06:390:06:40

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

0:06:400:06:44

Your game starts now.

0:06:440:06:46

-How many left on the bus?

-It's two.

0:06:540:06:56

Two, you're saying. Is that correct?

0:06:560:06:58

It is. Next bus, please.

0:06:580:07:00

-Six.

-Six.

0:07:150:07:16

Is that right?

0:07:160:07:18

-Five.

-Five. OK.

-Just one out there.

0:07:200:07:23

And our final bus coming up.

0:07:230:07:24

-How many left on the bus?

-Six.

-Six, you're saying.

0:07:370:07:39

Is that right?

0:07:410:07:42

-No, it's three.

-OK.

-Three, but they did get a lot quicker, didn't they?

0:07:420:07:46

Yeah. And it was many coming, many going, so.

0:07:460:07:49

-Yeah.

-It confused me a bit.

0:07:490:07:51

Well, never mind. Brain, what did you make of all that?

0:07:510:07:53

I'm so glad I managed to confuse you there, George.

0:07:530:07:57

I hear you grow your own chilli peppers,

0:07:570:07:59

and just like your chillies, I am hot stuff.

0:07:590:08:02

-Yeah, well, I have 33 variations of chillies.

-Shut up! George,

0:08:020:08:05

you added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:08:050:08:08

This means, in total, Wild Rovers

0:08:080:08:10

have 12 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:08:100:08:13

-Good start there, George.

-Thank you.

-Nice to meet you.

0:08:130:08:15

-Nice to meet you too.

-Rejoin the Wild Rovers.

0:08:150:08:17

APPLAUSE

0:08:170:08:19

So it's time now to find out which Zone is next

0:08:190:08:21

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

0:08:210:08:25

Logic, so, Sophie, who is going to play in the Logic Zone?

0:08:300:08:34

Right, well, as she's my sister,

0:08:340:08:37

and we think quite similarly,

0:08:370:08:40

I'm going to choose Claire.

0:08:400:08:43

Claire. Come on and be logical.

0:08:430:08:46

APPLAUSE

0:08:460:08:48

-Good to see you, Claire.

-Thank you.

0:08:500:08:52

-How do you feel about being nominated?

-Yes,

0:08:520:08:54

it's nice to get up quite soon,

0:08:540:08:56

rather than sitting there and worrying.

0:08:560:08:59

And do you reckon that you are a kind of logical sort of person?

0:08:590:09:02

I think I have to be logical in the job I do, getting the flights

0:09:020:09:05

out on time and everyone on board and where they need to be, so yes.

0:09:050:09:09

Well, I wonder how you're going to do

0:09:090:09:11

when it comes to taking on The Brain...

0:09:110:09:12

-Fingers crossed.

-..in logical things.

0:09:120:09:15

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

0:09:150:09:19

-Hello, Claire.

-Hello, Brain.

0:09:190:09:21

I hear you are a bit of a petrolhead and love speed.

0:09:210:09:25

Love speed, love fast cars, yes. Faster the better.

0:09:250:09:28

Well, let's see if you can be as fast as I can be.

0:09:280:09:32

-I'll try.

-Here's your first game.

0:09:320:09:35

Claire, identify the phrase or saying from the cryptic visual puzzle.

0:09:380:09:43

-I'll give you a trial run, Claire.

-Thank you.

0:09:430:09:46

-Left-handed.

-Now why are you saying that?

0:09:480:09:51

Because it's pointing to the "handed"

0:09:510:09:54

-on the left-hand side.

-Left.

-So left-handed.

0:09:540:09:58

Let's see if that's correct.

0:09:580:10:00

-And it is.

-Excellent.

-No problem with that one.

0:10:000:10:03

APPLAUSE

0:10:030:10:05

Let's play for real.

0:10:050:10:06

You can have as many guesses as you like, Claire,

0:10:060:10:09

but you only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:10:090:10:13

-OK.

-Your game starts now.

0:10:130:10:16

-What phrase is that?

-Press...

0:10:180:10:20

-Press.

-Press up?

-Press up, is that correct?

0:10:200:10:23

It is, indeed. Next one, please.

0:10:230:10:26

Oh, is it five o'clock shadow?

0:10:260:10:28

Is that five o'clock shadow? Could well be.

0:10:280:10:31

Yes, indeed. And 30 seconds left.

0:10:310:10:34

Apple, banana, orange and lemon.

0:10:340:10:36

No fruit?

0:10:360:10:39

No fruit. Is that a phrase?

0:10:390:10:42

Um...fruit.

0:10:420:10:43

-No fruit.

-You can keep on guessing. You've got time.

-Um...

0:10:450:10:48

Fruit banned...

0:10:480:10:50

Ten seconds left.

0:10:520:10:54

No fruit. Uh...

0:10:540:10:56

-Four seconds.

-Gosh, nope, can't get that one at all.

0:10:580:11:01

Time is up.

0:11:010:11:03

So let's find out what the answer was.

0:11:030:11:07

-Forbidden fruit!

-Of course!

0:11:070:11:10

-Now it's easy, isn't it?

-Oh, of course, when you know the answer.

0:11:100:11:14

Well, let's move on to the second game.

0:11:140:11:17

Well, would you Adam and Eve it? I was good then, wasn't I?

0:11:170:11:20

-You were cheeky.

-Yes, I am cheeky, Claire.

0:11:200:11:23

Here's your second game.

0:11:230:11:25

Three darts will be thrown.

0:11:280:11:30

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

0:11:300:11:33

Have a trial run.

0:11:330:11:35

16. Eight. Triple 15.

0:11:370:11:40

So you add those up and deduct it from the total.

0:11:420:11:46

60. Um, 100 and...

0:11:470:11:50

Sorry, 400 and...

0:11:500:11:53

441.

0:11:530:11:55

441, you're saying. Is that the correct answer?

0:11:550:11:58

-Oh, 432.

-432.

0:11:590:12:01

-Oh, well. She's really going to put you to the test here.

-Be nice!

0:12:010:12:05

-CLAIRE LAUGHS

-No chance.

0:12:050:12:07

THEY LAUGH

0:12:070:12:08

Ready to play, Brain.

0:12:080:12:09

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

0:12:090:12:13

But remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:12:130:12:17

Your game starts now.

0:12:170:12:20

Nine, 16, 13.

0:12:200:12:24

Nine, 16, 13.

0:12:290:12:31

38, 38, 38...

0:12:310:12:33

CLAIRE WHISPERS

0:12:330:12:35

-30 seconds left.

-60...

0:12:350:12:37

-60, er, 467.

-467, you're saying?

0:12:370:12:41

-463, I'm afraid.

-463.

-Next one, please, quickly.

0:12:410:12:45

Double 17, 19, 12.

0:12:450:12:49

CLAIRE SPEAKS INDISTINCTLY

0:12:500:12:52

-Ten seconds.

-65...

0:12:550:12:57

Er, two, four...

0:12:570:13:00

Five, three,

0:13:000:13:03

-two...

-No, I've lost it.

-..one.

0:13:030:13:05

-Time's up. No? Well, she caught you out in that round.

-Sorry, team.

0:13:050:13:09

-It's OK.

-Doesn't matter.

-Obviously not your forte.

0:13:090:13:12

Brain, you were very hard on Claire, there, weren't you?

0:13:120:13:15

I was particularly harsh, Claire, but don't despair.

0:13:150:13:18

JOHN LAUGHS You added six seconds in that Zone, Claire.

0:13:180:13:21

This means in total, Wild Rovers have 18 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:13:210:13:26

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:13:260:13:29

We have two more Zones to play and two more contestants,

0:13:290:13:32

so let's find out who is going to play what.

0:13:320:13:35

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:13:350:13:37

Observation it is. So...

0:13:420:13:45

-Right.

-..who's going to play in this Zone?

0:13:450:13:47

Well, Mum is very observant.

0:13:470:13:50

So, she likes to notice things,

0:13:500:13:54

especially when we don't want her to notice them,

0:13:540:13:56

-she's very good at noticing it.

-Like all mums!

0:13:560:13:59

Exactly. So, hopefully she'll do well on this one.

0:13:590:14:03

Well, Helen, come and join me.

0:14:030:14:05

APPLAUSE

0:14:050:14:07

-Lovely to see you, Helen.

-And you, John.

0:14:090:14:11

-Are you a little apprehensive at the moment?

-Yes, slightly.

0:14:110:14:14

Are you retired now?

0:14:140:14:15

-No, I work part-time, in a retirement village.

-What do you do?

0:14:150:14:19

Yes, I'm the emergency nurse.

0:14:190:14:21

And did you used to be a full-time nurse?

0:14:210:14:23

I was, yes, I've done quite a few different types.

0:14:230:14:26

-So, you'd need an awful lot of observation work in that job.

-Yes.

0:14:260:14:30

And I suppose keeping an eye on the family as well.

0:14:300:14:32

-And two difficult children.

-Oh!

0:14:320:14:34

THEY LAUGH

0:14:340:14:36

-I'm sure not, I'm sure not.

-What a cheek!

0:14:360:14:38

Brain, please reveal the first game Helen will be playing.

0:14:380:14:42

-Hello, Nurse Helen.

-Hello, Brain.

0:14:420:14:45

Can I hear what your soothing bedside manner voice sounds like?

0:14:450:14:48

Oh, nurse, my frontal lobe is aching.

0:14:480:14:52

Oh, dear. Well,

0:14:520:14:54

I would forget about it and it will go away.

0:14:540:14:57

Ah! I already feel better! LAUGHTER

0:14:570:15:00

Here's your first game.

0:15:000:15:02

Tell me the order the balloons pop.

0:15:050:15:08

Helen, you can warm up with a trial run.

0:15:080:15:11

-Red, blue, yellow.

-Red, blue, yellow, you're saying.

0:15:160:15:20

Have you started with a bang?

0:15:200:15:22

No problems there then, Helen.

0:15:220:15:24

-No.

-Ready to play the game for real?

0:15:240:15:26

-I am, thank you, yes. I'll try.

-OK. Brain, bring on the game.

0:15:260:15:29

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

0:15:290:15:33

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

0:15:330:15:37

Your game starts now.

0:15:370:15:39

White, blue, yellow.

0:15:440:15:46

White, blue, yellow, you're saying. Is that right?

0:15:460:15:50

White, yellow, blue. Other way round. Oh, dear. Onto the next one.

0:15:500:15:54

White, red, yellow.

0:15:580:16:01

White, red, yellow. Is that right?

0:16:010:16:04

-Yes, that one's correct.

-Oh, thank goodness.

-Yes.

0:16:040:16:07

-APPLAUSE

-One final round of balloon bursting.

0:16:070:16:09

Blue, yellow, white, red.

0:16:140:16:17

Is that right?

0:16:170:16:19

-Oh!

-Other way round, red and white, other way round.

0:16:200:16:23

There were four that time,

0:16:230:16:24

-that may have caught you out a little bit.

-Yes.

0:16:240:16:26

Let's move on to game two, please.

0:16:260:16:28

Absolutely, John.

0:16:280:16:30

Here's your second game, Helen.

0:16:300:16:33

Tell me which number plate you saw.

0:16:350:16:38

Here's a trial run.

0:16:380:16:40

BEEPING

0:16:400:16:41

CAR NOISES

0:16:450:16:46

Those six, which one did you see?

0:16:480:16:50

Two, I think.

0:16:500:16:52

-You're saying number two?

-I think so, yes.

0:16:520:16:55

Let's find out if that's right.

0:16:550:16:58

-No, it was number one.

-Oh.

-Yes.

0:16:580:17:00

Do take much notice of registration plates when you're driving along?

0:17:000:17:04

Not to a great extent.

0:17:040:17:06

You'd be no good if a policeman said,

0:17:060:17:09

-what was the number of that car?

-I probably wouldn't.

0:17:090:17:11

You might be, who knows? We'll wait and see.

0:17:110:17:13

Can we play the game, please?

0:17:130:17:14

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:17:140:17:18

Your game starts now.

0:17:180:17:20

Which of those six...

0:17:300:17:31

-..was it?

-It was number one.

0:17:310:17:33

Number one,

0:17:330:17:34

you're going for number one again, let's see if you're right.

0:17:340:17:37

-No, it was number three, unfortunately.

-Oh, dear.

0:17:370:17:40

Next one, please.

0:17:400:17:42

Number five.

0:17:510:17:53

Number five.

0:17:530:17:54

-No, number one it was, that time.

-Oh, gosh.

0:17:570:17:59

So, just one more.

0:17:590:18:01

Not doing too well, am I?

0:18:010:18:03

-Which one?

-That was...

0:18:120:18:15

-Oh, dear, doesn't look like any of the ones I saw.

-Ah.

0:18:150:18:18

But it was one of them, I assure you!

0:18:180:18:21

I think it must be number six.

0:18:210:18:23

Number six, you think.

0:18:230:18:25

Is that correct?

0:18:250:18:26

-Oh!

-No, it was number two.

0:18:260:18:28

-Not your sort of game.

-No.

0:18:280:18:30

As we say on this show,

0:18:300:18:31

it's different brains for different games.

0:18:310:18:34

Don't worry, don't worry, she shouldn't worry, should she, Brain?

0:18:340:18:37

Absolutely not. Don't worry, Helen, because you're beautiful

0:18:370:18:41

and if I had a body, I'd want your jacket.

0:18:410:18:44

LAUGHTER

0:18:440:18:45

Helen, you added three seconds in that Zone.

0:18:450:18:49

This means in total,

0:18:490:18:50

Wild Rovers have 21 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:18:500:18:53

-21 seconds, here we go.

-Thank you, John.

-Lovely to see you, Helen.

0:18:530:18:56

APPLAUSE

0:18:560:18:57

Sophie, our captain, you're the final player, so why don't you

0:18:570:19:00

come and join me and find out which Zone you'll be playing?

0:19:000:19:03

APPLAUSE

0:19:030:19:06

Quietly confident there?

0:19:070:19:09

Er, nervous, but hopeful.

0:19:090:19:11

I hear you like horror movies.

0:19:110:19:14

-Yes.

-Why's that?

0:19:140:19:15

I love being frightened.

0:19:150:19:17

Anything with a zombie in it, I'm there.

0:19:170:19:21

Well, we've got just the show for you today.

0:19:210:19:23

THEY LAUGH

0:19:230:19:25

Because you might be facing what some people regard

0:19:250:19:29

as a zombie in just a few seconds.

0:19:290:19:31

-OK.

-All right?

-Yes, I'm ready.

-OK.

0:19:310:19:34

Let's find out just which Zone

0:19:340:19:36

the brain is going to choose for you, Sophie.

0:19:360:19:39

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:19:390:19:41

-OK.

-Oh, what do you think about that, then?

0:19:450:19:48

I'll tell you afterwards!

0:19:480:19:49

THEY LAUGH

0:19:490:19:51

Are you good at orientation?

0:19:510:19:53

No, I'm dreadful.

0:19:530:19:55

Right, so, Brain,

0:19:550:19:56

please reveal the first game Sophie is going to be playing today.

0:19:560:20:00

-Hello, Sophie.

-Hello, Brain.

0:20:000:20:03

So, you love the thrill of a scary movie, do you?

0:20:030:20:05

I love them.

0:20:050:20:07

EASTERN EUROPEAN ACCENT Well, my pretty pea, be afraid, be very afraid.

0:20:070:20:11

-LOW PITCHED LAUGHTER

-I am.

0:20:110:20:14

Here's your first game.

0:20:140:20:16

Match the viewpoint on the left to the numbered position on the right.

0:20:190:20:24

Have yourself a trial run.

0:20:240:20:26

What do you reckon that is?

0:20:300:20:32

I think that's number two.

0:20:320:20:34

Number two, let's see if you're correct.

0:20:340:20:36

-Mm.

-Number three.

0:20:380:20:40

-Ready to play?

-Yes.

-Right, let's go for real.

0:20:400:20:43

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

0:20:430:20:47

but I will only accept your first answer.

0:20:470:20:51

Your game starts now.

0:20:510:20:53

Which viewpoint is that?

0:20:560:20:57

-Number six.

-Number six, you think.

0:20:590:21:01

Is that correct?

0:21:010:21:03

-It's number seven.

-Ah.

0:21:030:21:05

Right, next one, please.

0:21:050:21:07

30 seconds left.

0:21:070:21:09

-Number eight.

-Number eight, you think.

0:21:110:21:15

-Oh!

-Number five.

0:21:150:21:17

-20 seconds to go. One last one.

-OK.

0:21:170:21:20

Got a bit of time with this one. It's got to be number two.

0:21:200:21:23

It's got to be number two, you say. Is that right?!

0:21:230:21:26

-Yes!

-And it is indeed!

-I got one! Yay.

0:21:260:21:29

-Whoo-hoo!

-Well, there we go.

-APPLAUSE

0:21:290:21:31

Yes, you got one. Let's see how you do in game two.

0:21:310:21:34

-Can we have it, please, Brain?

-Absolutely, John.

0:21:340:21:37

Here's your second game.

0:21:370:21:38

Which wheel matches the one on the left?

0:21:410:21:44

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

0:21:440:21:47

-OK.

-It's going to spin round to meet up with that one on the left.

0:21:510:21:54

OK, that has got to be...

0:21:540:21:58

Oh...

0:22:000:22:02

D.

0:22:020:22:03

D?

0:22:030:22:04

You're saying D.

0:22:040:22:07

And it was B.

0:22:070:22:09

-Mm?

-Mm!

-Mm-hm.

0:22:090:22:11

-Never mind.

-SOPHIE LAUGHS

0:22:110:22:12

I'm sure you're going to do much better now, as we go for real.

0:22:120:22:15

-We'll see.

-Yes. OK, Brain.

0:22:150:22:18

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

0:22:180:22:22

but please remember, I will only accept your first answer.

0:22:220:22:26

Your game starts now.

0:22:260:22:28

OK.

0:22:300:22:32

SOPHIE EXHALES DEEPLY

0:22:330:22:35

-A.

-A, you're saying.

0:22:360:22:38

Correct, yes, it is, well done.

0:22:380:22:39

-Next one, please.

-APPLAUSE

0:22:390:22:42

-30 seconds.

-OK.

0:22:440:22:45

D.

0:22:450:22:47

Yes.

0:22:480:22:49

-APPLAUSE

-Well done.

0:22:490:22:52

Last one.

0:22:520:22:53

Er...

0:22:530:22:55

Mm...

0:22:550:22:56

C.

0:22:580:22:59

C, you're saying. Is that correct, Brain?

0:22:590:23:02

-APPLAUSE

-It is, yes. Maximum points on that.

0:23:020:23:06

-I surprised myself, John.

-You really recovered there, didn't you, Sophie?

0:23:060:23:10

-Yes.

-A bit of a captain's game in that last round, yes.

0:23:100:23:13

Don't you think so, Brain?

0:23:130:23:15

Absolutely. You're a bit of a dark horse, Sophie.

0:23:150:23:18

Well, Brain, it's about time someone beat you.

0:23:180:23:22

Ha! Absolutely.

0:23:220:23:25

Sophie, you're a bit cocky, aren't you?

0:23:250:23:27

SOPHIE LAUGHS

0:23:270:23:29

Sophie, you added 12 seconds in that zone.

0:23:290:23:32

This means, Wild Rovers,

0:23:320:23:35

you have finished with a grand total of 33 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:350:23:40

-APPLAUSE

-Well done, Sophie.

-Thank you.

0:23:400:23:42

If you'd like to rejoin the rest of the Wild Rovers.

0:23:420:23:45

So, we've finished the individuals Zones now

0:23:450:23:49

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

0:23:490:23:52

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

0:23:520:23:56

Well, Wild Rovers,

0:24:000:24:02

you added 33 seconds to your Brain Bank in those four opening Zones.

0:24:020:24:07

Now your task is to answer eight questions correctly,

0:24:070:24:11

two per player, as quickly as you can.

0:24:110:24:13

Do that within your 33 seconds and you'll win today's

0:24:130:24:16

jackpot of £3,000.

0:24:160:24:18

But if you can't do that, there's still a chance to win because

0:24:180:24:21

The Brain has very generously given you another

0:24:210:24:24

two minutes in which to find the answers, but there's a catch.

0:24:240:24:27

As the time counts down,

0:24:270:24:29

so does the money, at the rate of £25 a second.

0:24:290:24:33

Take too long and both the time and the money will run out

0:24:330:24:36

and you will be leaving with nothing. OK?

0:24:360:24:38

Sophie, you've chosen the order of play.

0:24:380:24:41

-Yes.

-Why Claire first?

0:24:410:24:43

Because Claire's quite a strong player and so I think it would be a

0:24:430:24:47

good idea to start and end with a strong player and myself

0:24:470:24:52

and Mum have got more of a relaxed opportunity

0:24:520:24:58

and the pressure is on Claire and George rather than Helen and myself.

0:24:580:25:03

Yes. Well, Wild Rovers, I wish you the best of luck

0:25:030:25:06

and this is time to get serious now, so let's start today's final.

0:25:060:25:10

Over to you, Brain.

0:25:100:25:12

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

0:25:120:25:16

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

0:25:160:25:21

Wild Rovers, beat me if you can.

0:25:210:25:24

That's the big question. Can you beat The Brain?

0:25:240:25:27

As usual, we'll be starting with the player on the left,

0:25:270:25:30

that's Claire, I need two correct answers from you, Claire,

0:25:300:25:33

before I can move on to Helen and then down the line. OK?

0:25:330:25:36

-Everybody got that?

-Yeah.

-Right, let's start the game.

0:25:360:25:39

How many times past the needle?

0:25:490:25:51

Um, five and three.

0:25:510:25:54

Five and three?

0:25:540:25:56

Two and five.

0:25:560:25:58

-19, 16, double 15.

-Pass.

0:25:580:26:00

Blue, white, yellow.

0:26:070:26:10

Correct.

0:26:100:26:11

Which viewpoint?

0:26:110:26:15

One.

0:26:150:26:16

Yes. Helen.

0:26:160:26:18

How many on the bus?

0:26:240:26:26

Two.

0:26:260:26:27

Incorrect.

0:26:270:26:29

What phrase?

0:26:290:26:31

Pass.

0:26:370:26:38

What numberplate?

0:26:430:26:44

Two.

0:26:440:26:46

Correct. Which wheel matches the one on the left?

0:26:470:26:50

D.

0:26:520:26:54

No.

0:26:540:26:56

Three.

0:27:010:27:02

Correct. Sophie?

0:27:020:27:04

White, red, blue.

0:27:080:27:11

Yes.

0:27:110:27:12

Triple 17, seven, 18.

0:27:120:27:15

Subtract the score.

0:27:150:27:16

Pass.

0:27:190:27:21

B.

0:27:260:27:28

George.

0:27:290:27:31

Number one.

0:27:350:27:38

Correct.

0:27:380:27:39

Three and one.

0:27:440:27:45

Stop the clock.

0:27:450:27:46

APPLAUSE

0:27:470:27:50

Well done.

0:27:520:27:53

Well done. 31 seconds left. Eight correct answers.

0:27:530:27:56

You've won £775.

0:27:560:27:59

APPLAUSE

0:27:590:28:00

CHEERING

0:28:000:28:02

Well, my heart was pounding then, I thought you might not make it

0:28:020:28:06

but you did.

0:28:060:28:07

You're going home with some money so, well done Wild Rovers.

0:28:070:28:09

-How do you feel now, Captain Sophie?

-Brilliant.

0:28:090:28:12

I've got a great team and really happy. Really happy.

0:28:120:28:15

Thank you for remembering us.

0:28:150:28:16

LAUGHTER

0:28:160:28:18

You got quite a few of your un-favourite questions.

0:28:180:28:20

Yes, we did.

0:28:200:28:22

So, Brain, you weren't quite that vicious.

0:28:220:28:25

No, they beat me fair and square.

0:28:250:28:28

And I hope this means a certain lady I know

0:28:280:28:30

can have a free holiday in Greece.

0:28:300:28:33

-I'll give you a free holiday in Ios, don't worry, Brain.

-Thank you.

0:28:330:28:37

And thank you for watching at home today.

0:28:370:28:39

Hope you enjoyed playing along.

0:28:390:28:40

-But for now, it's goodbye from Wild Rovers.

-Bye.

-From Brain.

-Goodbye.

0:28:400:28:46

And from me. See you again next time.

0:28:460:28:48

Remember the questions I posed at the beginning of the show?

0:28:510:28:55

Here are the answers. What's the phrase or saying?

0:28:550:28:59

The answer is...

0:29:010:29:03

And what about the second one?

0:29:050:29:06

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

0:29:060:29:14

The answer is...

0:29:140:29:15

Join me and John next time for more exciting games on Beat The Brain.

0:29:170:29:22

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 quiz-loving family from Surrey pit their wits against the all-knowing Brain in the hope of winning £3,000.
