Hello, it's The Brain.

0:00:020:00:04

Our team today is about to experience a bout of intellectual acrobatics.

0:00:040:00:09

To get you in the same mind-set,

0:00:090:00:11

try a couple of the kind of games our team could face.

0:00:110:00:14

What's the phrase or saying?

0:00:170:00:19

Now try this one.

0:00:230:00:25

Solve the riddle.

0:00:280:00:29

Did you get them right? Find out at the end of the show.

0:00:340:00:37

Let's see if our team of four have the mental stamina to Beat The Brain.

0:00:370:00:42

APPLAUSE

0:00:580:01:00

Please welcome the nation's favourite John, Mr John Craven.

0:01:000:01:05

Well, thank you very much, and welcome to the show.

0:01:050:01:08

Over the next half hour,

0:01:080:01:09

our contestants will face some mind-bending challenges,

0:01:090:01:13

designed to push their mental capabilities to the very limit.

0:01:130:01:16

And of course, you can play along at home as well with every game

0:01:160:01:19

and find out how you measure up.

0:01:190:01:21

So, let's say hello to the queen of our quiz.

0:01:210:01:24

-How are you today, Brain?

-I'm very well thank you, Mr Craven.

0:01:240:01:28

And if I were Queen, you'd have a knighthood, that's for sure.

0:01:280:01:31

Well, that's very generous,

0:01:310:01:33

and let's hope our team gets some honours as well today.

0:01:330:01:35

Let's meet them now.

0:01:350:01:36

I'm Amy and I'm a psychology student.

0:01:360:01:39

I'm Will and I'm a sports psychology student.

0:01:390:01:42

I'm Jess and I'm a psychology student.

0:01:420:01:44

I'm Daniel, I'm the team captain and I'm a biomedical science student.

0:01:440:01:48

APPLAUSE

0:01:480:01:49

A big welcome. Daniel, you're the captain. Have you got a team name?

0:01:490:01:53

We do have a team name, we are called the Roey Brains.

0:01:530:01:55

-Roey? Why Roey?

-We're all students at Roehampton University

0:01:550:01:58

and it became a running joke

0:01:580:01:59

of just a short-handed name for the university.

0:01:590:02:02

-Roey Roehampton.

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:02:020:02:03

-You're all, three of you anyway, studying psychology.

-Mm-hm.

0:02:030:02:07

-So, discovering all about the brain, the mind.

-Yes.

-That's right.

0:02:070:02:10

I wonder what you're going to discover about our brain today.

0:02:100:02:13

THEY LAUGH

0:02:130:02:15

Let's find out, because this is how the show works.

0:02:150:02:18

Our brain here is divided into six zones...

0:02:180:02:21

And The Brain will select four of those six zones

0:02:280:02:30

for you to play today.

0:02:300:02:32

Daniel, as the captain, you must nominate which team member

0:02:320:02:35

-you think will perform best in each of the zones. OK?

-OK.

0:02:350:02:39

You'll be playing for time instead of points,

0:02:390:02:41

with every correct answer adding three seconds to your total,

0:02:410:02:45

into what we call the Brain Bank.

0:02:450:02:47

The more time you build up,

0:02:470:02:48

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

0:02:480:02:52

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

0:02:520:02:54

-So, Roey Brains, are you ready to play?

-Yes.

-We are indeed.

-OK.

0:02:540:02:59

Well, time to find out which zone you'll be facing first.

0:02:590:03:02

So, Brain, a zone, please.

0:03:020:03:04

It's Language.

0:03:090:03:10

Daniel, who are you going to nominate for Language?

0:03:100:03:13

I think for Language we will nominate Jess.

0:03:130:03:16

Jess. Any reason for that?

0:03:160:03:18

Jess is the only member of our team that speaks more than one language,

0:03:180:03:21

so she's best equipped for language-based challenges.

0:03:210:03:25

Right, Jess, come and join me.

0:03:250:03:26

APPLAUSE

0:03:260:03:28

-Which other languages do you speak?

-I speak Spanish.

-Ah-ha.

0:03:300:03:33

Of course our version of language

0:03:330:03:35

may not be what you think is of a language.

0:03:350:03:37

-Probably...

-The Brain can be pretty devious.

-Yeah!

0:03:370:03:40

Let's see how you do when you play The Brain, OK?

0:03:400:03:43

So, you play two games in this zone,

0:03:430:03:45

both have three questions worth three seconds each, all right?

0:03:450:03:49

Brain, what's the first game?

0:03:490:03:50

-Hola, Jess.

-Hello.

0:03:500:03:52

How are you?

0:03:520:03:54

-I'm good, thank you, how are you?

-I'm very well.

0:03:540:03:56

I hear you once broke your kneecap doing limbo.

0:03:560:04:00

-I did.

-Are you going to be bending over backwards for your team today?

0:04:000:04:04

-I wish I could say yes...

-Don't answer back. Here's the first game.

0:04:040:04:08

Find the hidden word using the sentence as a clue.

0:04:110:04:15

To help you, have a trial run.

0:04:150:04:18

Of course, the word you're looking for might be inside a word,

0:04:200:04:23

-or it could be two or three words.

-Yes, it's talking about painters.

0:04:230:04:27

-Yes, yes.

-It could be...

0:04:270:04:30

-..Picasso.

-Picasso. From Epic, and As and the S in Sun.

-Yes.

0:04:300:04:34

-Picasso...

-Is that right? Oh, great.

-You're absolutely right, yeah.

0:04:340:04:37

JESS LAUGHS

0:04:370:04:38

-No trouble in finding that last word.

-No.

0:04:380:04:41

-Ready to play the game properly?

-Ready.

-OK, off we go.

0:04:410:04:44

Jess, you can have as many guesses as you like,

0:04:440:04:47

but I will not move on to the next question

0:04:470:04:49

until you give me the correct answer or pass.

0:04:490:04:52

You only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:04:520:04:55

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

0:04:550:04:59

The game starts...

0:04:590:05:01

now.

0:05:010:05:03

OK... so "using this tightly woven fabric

0:05:030:05:05

"can vastly improve your painting."

0:05:050:05:07

So...um...

0:05:070:05:08

There's a clue there somewhere.

0:05:080:05:10

-I'm thinking something about TIGHTLY WOVEN is going to be the clue.

-Mm.

0:05:100:05:14

Um... VER... LINE...

0:05:140:05:15

30 seconds left.

0:05:160:05:18

You can pass if you want.

0:05:180:05:19

Um...

0:05:190:05:21

-I think I'm going to have to pass it.

-Pass? OK, right.

0:05:240:05:27

The answer was CANVAS.

0:05:270:05:28

OK, next one.

0:05:280:05:30

"This type of waterway can always be navigated by barge."

0:05:300:05:33

-OK, so it's going to have something to do with water.

-Uh-huh.

0:05:330:05:36

-So... It's CANAL.

-CANAL.

-CANAL.

-OK, let's see.

0:05:360:05:38

-You're absolutely right.

-Brilliant.

-Eight seconds left.

0:05:380:05:40

"In his search for a cure a coin stable

0:05:400:05:43

"took one to help ease the pain."

0:05:430:05:45

-So...

-Running out of time.

0:05:450:05:47

-Time up, I'm afraid.

-SHE SIGHS

0:05:470:05:49

-Let's find the answer to that.

-What was that?

0:05:490:05:52

-TABLET.

-TABLET.

0:05:530:05:55

-Ah.

-I'd never have got that.

0:05:550:05:57

Never mind. Let's see how you do in game two.

0:05:570:05:59

Sorry about that, Jess.

0:05:590:06:01

Although I have a spongy consistency,

0:06:010:06:03

I can be very hard.

0:06:030:06:05

Here's your second game.

0:06:050:06:06

Rearrange the newspaper cuttings to form a word.

0:06:090:06:13

To get your eye on, Jess, have a trial run.

0:06:130:06:15

So what word is contained there?

0:06:190:06:21

-It's DIESEL.

-DIESEL, you think?

-Diesel.

0:06:210:06:24

DIESEL, let's see if that's correct.

0:06:240:06:26

-There we are, yes.

-Brilliant, OK.

0:06:260:06:28

Well done, Jess.

0:06:280:06:29

-So...are you ready to play the game?

-Yes, I'm ready.

0:06:290:06:31

On we go, Brain.

0:06:310:06:33

You can have as many guesses as you like,

0:06:330:06:35

but I will not move onto the next question

0:06:350:06:37

until you give me the correct answer or pass.

0:06:370:06:40

Your game starts now.

0:06:400:06:41

OK, so... ANTPE-AS...

0:06:420:06:44

PE-ANTAS...

0:06:440:06:46

PEASANT!

0:06:460:06:47

PEASANT you say?

0:06:470:06:49

And you're right. Next one.

0:06:490:06:51

Um...

0:06:510:06:52

-FURLONG.

-FURLONG you say?

0:06:530:06:55

You're correct, well done. 30 seconds left.

0:06:550:06:58

Um...

0:06:580:07:00

PHAN... PHAPH...

0:07:000:07:01

O...

0:07:010:07:03

-PHOTOGRAPH!

-PHOTOGRAPH.

0:07:040:07:05

That could be... It is, well done.

0:07:060:07:08

Well done, with 19 seconds to spare, Jess.

0:07:080:07:10

-Brilliant.

-So that was an easier round for you, wasn't it?

0:07:100:07:13

-That one I could do.

-THEY CHUCKLE

0:07:130:07:15

So how did you think, Brain, what about Jess' performance?

0:07:150:07:18

-That was much better, wasn't it, Jess?

-Definitely.

0:07:180:07:21

-And I like your lacy top, too.

-Oh, thank you.

0:07:210:07:24

Jess, you added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:07:240:07:27

This means in total Roey Brains have 12 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:07:270:07:31

APPLAUSE

0:07:310:07:32

Right, time to find out which Zone we're going to be playing next

0:07:320:07:35

and who is going to take it on.

0:07:350:07:37

So, Brain, a Zone, please.

0:07:370:07:38

Logic. Daniel, who's going to play in the Logic Zone?

0:07:430:07:46

-Um... I think I'm going to do the Logic Zone.

-Right, OK.

0:07:460:07:50

Well, come and join me.

0:07:500:07:51

APPLAUSE

0:07:510:07:52

Why did you nominate yourself?

0:07:550:07:56

I like to think of myself as a logical person

0:07:560:07:58

because I normally work in more of a science area,

0:07:580:08:00

so it's kind of the same area of the brain that you're applying a lot.

0:08:000:08:03

Well, let's see how you do now, then, Daniel,

0:08:030:08:05

in the Logic Zone, OK?

0:08:050:08:07

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

0:08:070:08:11

-Hello, Captain Daniel.

-Hello.

0:08:110:08:13

I have a bone to pick with you.

0:08:130:08:15

I think it's very presumptuous of you

0:08:150:08:17

to use my name as part of your team title.

0:08:170:08:20

Say, "Sorry, Brain."

0:08:200:08:21

Sorry, Brain. We used...

0:08:210:08:22

No excuses! LAUGHTER

0:08:220:08:24

Here's the first game.

0:08:240:08:27

Daniel, identify the phrase or saying from the cryptic visual clue.

0:08:280:08:32

To give you some practice, I'll let you have a trial run.

0:08:320:08:35

So, what phrase do you reckon that could be?

0:08:390:08:42

Well, it's a list of ages...

0:08:420:08:44

-Age, yes.

-..and it's going towards the middle one,

0:08:440:08:48

so I'd have to go for "middle age".

0:08:480:08:50

"Middle age", you're saying. Let's see if you're correct.

0:08:500:08:53

And you are indeed. Yes, "middle age".

0:08:530:08:55

-Something that you are a long way off at the moment.

-I hope so!

0:08:550:08:58

-Right, are you ready to play the game?

-I think so, yes.

0:09:000:09:03

OK, off we go.

0:09:030:09:04

Every correct answer adds three seconds to the Brain Bank

0:09:040:09:07

to use in today's final.

0:09:070:09:09

You only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:09:090:09:13

Your game starts now.

0:09:140:09:16

-What phrase is this?

-That is "Double Dutch."

0:09:160:09:19

"Double Dutch," is it right?

0:09:190:09:20

It is indeed. Next one, please.

0:09:200:09:22

-"Diamonds are forever."

-"Diamonds are forever."

0:09:240:09:27

Yes, you're right.

0:09:270:09:28

And the last one.

0:09:280:09:29

Still 30 seconds left.

0:09:290:09:32

Um... "Horse and cart."

0:09:320:09:33

Mm.

0:09:330:09:35

Um...

0:09:350:09:38

-keep on guessing.

-Um...

0:09:390:09:41

Keep on guessing, the time's running out.

0:09:410:09:43

"Cart and horse."

0:09:430:09:45

Um...

0:09:450:09:46

Horse away from the cart?

0:09:470:09:49

Good old phrase.

0:09:490:09:51

Um...

0:09:510:09:52

I think the rest of the team might have it.

0:09:520:09:55

Horse without a cart... Cart without a horse...

0:09:550:09:57

Running out of time. Four seconds... 3, 2, 1.

0:09:570:10:00

I don't know it, sorry.

0:10:000:10:01

Out of time! So do you know, team?

0:10:010:10:03

-I tried really hard to work it out.

-I would have gone with your answer.

0:10:030:10:06

Oh, well. You don't feel so bad then.

0:10:060:10:08

I don't feel as bad if everyone struggled.

0:10:080:10:11

Let's get the answer.

0:10:110:10:13

You'll kick yourself.

0:10:130:10:14

OK.

0:10:160:10:17

Is that a phrase you've heard?

0:10:170:10:19

I don't think it is a phrase I've heard, no.

0:10:190:10:21

It's probably a middle-aged phrase.

0:10:210:10:22

THEY LAUGH

0:10:220:10:24

Anyway, let's move on to game number two.

0:10:240:10:27

-OK.

-Use the clues to work out the position of a particular animal.

0:10:280:10:33

The clues describe the animals from your perspective.

0:10:330:10:37

Have a trial run, Daniel.

0:10:370:10:38

Solve the riddle.

0:10:390:10:41

OK, so if Dot is to the right of Mimi,

0:10:410:10:44

and Dot is to the left of Dribble...

0:10:440:10:46

So Dot has to be in the middle...

0:10:460:10:49

So Mimi is to the right of Dot...

0:10:490:10:52

You reckon Mimi to the right? Let's see if you're correct.

0:10:540:10:56

Yes, it's Mimi on the far right.

0:10:560:10:58

Is Mimi on the right?

0:10:580:11:00

-OK, no.

-Mimi's on the left?

0:11:000:11:03

-THEY CHUCKLE

-That's a good start!

0:11:030:11:05

Yes, you sounded to be working it out pretty cleverly,

0:11:050:11:08

you just got the wrong answer!

0:11:080:11:10

-So you've got three to come now.

-OK.

0:11:100:11:11

-Are you ready for that?

-As I'll ever be.

0:11:110:11:13

OK, off we go, Brain.

0:11:130:11:15

Remember, Daniel,

0:11:150:11:16

you have only 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly.

0:11:160:11:20

Your game starts now.

0:11:210:11:23

Nigel is to the left of Steve,

0:11:250:11:26

Steve is to the left of Boris so...

0:11:260:11:28

(Nigel is to the left of Steve,

0:11:300:11:31

(and Steve is to the left of...)

0:11:310:11:33

Steve is in the middle.

0:11:330:11:34

"Steve is in the middle," you say?

0:11:340:11:36

Correct.

0:11:360:11:37

And Cheep isn't to the right of Squeak

0:11:390:11:42

and Squeak is to the right of Eggo...

0:11:420:11:44

Squeak is in the middle.

0:11:440:11:46

Squeak's in the middle? Is he?

0:11:460:11:48

Yes, he is.

0:11:480:11:50

Off you go.

0:11:500:11:51

Um... Teddy is to the left of Bear,

0:11:510:11:53

Bear is to the right of Boo...

0:11:530:11:55

So...

0:11:560:11:57

Where is Teddy? Ten seconds left.

0:11:570:11:59

Teddy is on the far...left.

0:11:590:12:02

On the left?

0:12:020:12:03

Let's see if you're correct.

0:12:030:12:05

No, he's on the right.

0:12:050:12:07

Well, two out of three there.

0:12:070:12:08

I'm OK with that.

0:12:080:12:10

Brain, what do you think?

0:12:100:12:11

I think he's a sweet, sweet boy.

0:12:110:12:13

Thank you!

0:12:130:12:15

Daniel, you added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:12:150:12:17

This means, in total, the Roey...

0:12:170:12:19

BRAIN SPLUTTERS: ..Brains

0:12:190:12:21

have 24 seconds in their Brain Bank!

0:12:210:12:23

APPLAUSE

0:12:230:12:24

24 seconds, well done. Good to see you, Daniel.

0:12:240:12:27

Rejoin your team. Well, we're halfway through now.

0:12:270:12:29

We've had two Zones already and two more are just around the corner.

0:12:290:12:32

Let's see which Zone is next and who is going to take it on.

0:12:320:12:36

Brain, a Zone, please.

0:12:360:12:38

Memory. Daniel, who's going to play against the Brain

0:12:430:12:46

in the Memory Zone?

0:12:460:12:48

I think Amy is going to take this round.

0:12:480:12:50

-Amy.

-Yes.

-Well, come and join me.

0:12:500:12:52

APPLAUSE

0:12:520:12:53

-Good to see you.

-Lovely to see you.

0:12:550:12:57

Are you enjoying yourself at Roey?

0:12:570:12:59

Very much so. It's very interesting.

0:12:590:13:01

-And as a psychology student...

-Yes.

0:13:010:13:03

..how do you fancy facing up against the Brain?

0:13:030:13:06

I think we've got a good chance.

0:13:060:13:08

-Do you think you might outface her?

-Oh, definitely.

0:13:080:13:11

Right, well, let's see if you do. Let's find out.

0:13:110:13:13

Don't forget, there are another 18 precious seconds on offer

0:13:130:13:16

in this Zone, that's three seconds for every correct answer.

0:13:160:13:19

Brain, please reveal the first game that Amy will be playing

0:13:190:13:23

in your Memory Zone.

0:13:230:13:24

Ah, the confidence of youth.

0:13:240:13:26

LAUGHTER

0:13:260:13:27

-Hello, Amy.

-Hiya.

0:13:270:13:29

I may have wrinkles, you know,

0:13:290:13:31

but let me tell you I've got all the right wrinkles

0:13:310:13:34

in all the right places!

0:13:340:13:36

Anyway, on with your first game.

0:13:360:13:39

It's called:

0:13:390:13:41

Identify the winning line in this game of noughts and crosses.

0:13:420:13:46

-You can warm up, Amy, with a trial run.

-Thank you.

0:13:460:13:49

Which line?

0:13:570:13:58

I'm pretty sure it's B.

0:13:590:14:01

You think it's B? Are you correct?

0:14:010:14:03

-It is, indeed.

-Awesome.

0:14:050:14:07

Brain, let's play the game.

0:14:070:14:09

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:14:090:14:12

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

0:14:120:14:15

Your game starts...

0:14:160:14:18

now.

0:14:180:14:19

Which one?

0:14:270:14:29

-D.

-D? Are you saying D?

0:14:290:14:31

Let's see if you're correct.

0:14:310:14:33

Yes, you are.

0:14:330:14:34

Next one, please.

0:14:340:14:36

-Which one this time?

-A.

0:14:460:14:47

-A?

-Yes.

0:14:470:14:49

All the noughts.

0:14:490:14:51

It is correct.

0:14:510:14:52

And one more.

0:14:520:14:53

-SHE LAUGHS

-Which one that time?

0:14:590:15:02

D?

0:15:020:15:03

-D?

-Yes.

-D.

0:15:030:15:05

Let's find out.

0:15:050:15:07

And you're correct - so that's pretty good.

0:15:070:15:09

-Lovely!

-Maximum seconds.

0:15:090:15:10

Let's find out what the Brain has got in store for game two?

0:15:100:15:14

Hm, I shall have to up my ante with Amy.

0:15:140:15:17

Here's the second game.

0:15:170:15:19

Remember where the pictures were, once they've disappeared.

0:15:220:15:26

Here is a trial run, Amy.

0:15:260:15:27

-Where are the fiddles?

-Where are the fiddles?

0:15:350:15:37

3 and 4.

0:15:370:15:38

3 and 4, you're saying for the fiddles?

0:15:380:15:41

Well done.

0:15:420:15:44

-Correct, good observation there.

-Thank you.

0:15:440:15:46

So, on we move then to play the game for real.

0:15:460:15:50

Please remember I can only accept your first answer.

0:15:500:15:53

Every correct answer adds three seconds to the Brain Bank

0:15:530:15:56

to use in today's final.

0:15:560:15:58

Your game starts...

0:15:580:16:00

now.

0:16:000:16:01

Clocks, pigs, coins.

0:16:030:16:05

Where are the clocks?

0:16:070:16:09

-1 and 5.

-1 and 5?

0:16:090:16:11

Is that correct?

0:16:110:16:13

It is.

0:16:130:16:15

Next one, please.

0:16:150:16:16

Where are the glass slippers?

0:16:220:16:24

-Glass slippers.

-5, 8 and 9.

0:16:240:16:26

5, 8 and 9, you're saying?

0:16:260:16:28

Are you right?

0:16:280:16:30

You are.

0:16:300:16:32

So...one more.

0:16:320:16:33

(Oh, God!)

0:16:350:16:36

-More of them this time.

-Yes.

0:16:400:16:42

Where are the cats?

0:16:420:16:43

5, 2, 3 and 12?

0:16:440:16:47

5, 2, 3...

0:16:470:16:50

-Yes!

-Yes!

-Well done! That was a very difficult one...

-Thank you!

-..wasn't it?

0:16:500:16:54

What did you think, rest of team? Did you get that one right?

0:16:540:16:56

-That was amazing!

-She was fantastic!

0:16:560:16:59

So, Brain, you'll have to try to do better than that.

0:16:590:17:01

Absolutely, John, what a clever young woman.

0:17:010:17:04

Amy, you added 18 seconds in that Zone. Full house.

0:17:040:17:09

This means in total, Roey Brains have 42 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:17:090:17:14

-Thank you very much.

-Maximum points, Amy, well done.

-Thank you.

0:17:140:17:17

Yeah, go back and join your team. Lovely to meet you.

0:17:170:17:20

-Will, you're our final player.

-Oh, dear.

0:17:200:17:23

No choice over what you get nominated for.

0:17:230:17:26

Come and join me

0:17:260:17:27

and we'll see what the Brain has got in store for you.

0:17:270:17:30

-Good to see you.

-Good to see you.

0:17:310:17:33

-You're studying Sports Psychology.

-I am indeed.

0:17:330:17:35

So, what do you hope to do with that?

0:17:350:17:37

I would like to work in a developing country

0:17:370:17:39

with a potential Olympic athlete, to be their sports psychologist.

0:17:390:17:42

Well, let's see how you do because we have got three Zones left.

0:17:420:17:46

We've got Orientation, Observation and Multi-tasking.

0:17:460:17:49

So, Brain, a Zone, please.

0:17:490:17:51

Multi-tasking, what do you think of that?

0:17:570:17:59

My least favourite but I'll give it a go, obviously.

0:17:590:18:02

Do as well as I can.

0:18:020:18:03

Are you any good at multi-tasking around the digs or anything?

0:18:030:18:06

I'm a man, no.

0:18:060:18:09

-Gosh.

-OK, Brain, please can we have the first game?

0:18:090:18:13

-Of course. Hello, Will.

-Hello.

0:18:130:18:16

I'm not meant to have favourites

0:18:160:18:18

and I know brains matter rather than looks but lordy, you're cute.

0:18:180:18:22

-Oh, thank you.

-My pleasure. Here's your first game.

0:18:220:18:25

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

0:18:280:18:33

Have yourself a trial run.

0:18:330:18:35

Count the carrots and add the numbers.

0:18:350:18:38

-So that was 10 on the right...

-10 on the right.

0:18:470:18:50

-..and 2 on the left.

-2 on the left.

0:18:500:18:52

-1 and 10. Right, off we go.

-Your game starts now.

0:18:530:18:58

Count the ice creams and add the numbers.

0:18:580:19:00

So, how many ice creams?

0:19:090:19:12

That was 3 ice creams on the left and 12 on the right.

0:19:120:19:16

3 and 12, you're saying.

0:19:160:19:19

Yes, you're correct, well done. Onto the next one.

0:19:190:19:22

Count the bananas and add the numbers.

0:19:220:19:25

So, what do you say there?

0:19:350:19:36

I think 3 on the left and 20 on the right.

0:19:360:19:39

3 and 20 is your answer and it's correct. Yes, one more to go.

0:19:390:19:44

Count the rubber ducks and add the numbers.

0:19:450:19:48

That's 3 on the left and 24 on the right.

0:19:590:20:01

3 rubber ducks and 24 is the total. Are you right? Yes, you are.

0:20:010:20:04

-Yes.

-Well done. That was very good.

-Thank you.

0:20:040:20:06

What have you got for the second game, Brain?

0:20:060:20:08

Hmm, three out of three there, this makes me sad.

0:20:080:20:13

Here's your second game.

0:20:130:20:14

Count the number of times each arrow passes its needle.

0:20:170:20:21

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

0:20:210:20:23

So, what are you saying, how many times on the left and on the right?

0:20:350:20:38

-2 on the left and 5 on the right.

-2 and 5. Let's see.

0:20:380:20:43

-2 and 6, missed one revolution out.

-Okey dokey.

-OK.

0:20:430:20:48

Are you happy to play it again?

0:20:480:20:50

-Yeah, I suppose I have to be.

-Off we go.

0:20:500:20:52

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

0:20:530:20:57

Your game starts now.

0:20:570:20:58

-That is 4 on the left...

-Yeah.

-..and 1 on the right.

0:21:100:21:14

4 and 1. Is that right?

0:21:140:21:17

It is correct, well done. On to the next one.

0:21:170:21:19

So how many times have they revolved there?

0:21:300:21:33

-I believe 4 on the left and 3 on the right.

-4 and 3.

0:21:330:21:37

-Yes, well done. Heading for maximum points.

-Wahey.

-Right, one more.

0:21:380:21:43

A bit faster that time, what are you saying?

0:21:540:21:56

-Hmm, I believe 5 on the left...

-5.

-..and 6 on the right.

0:21:560:22:00

5 and 6.

0:22:000:22:02

Is that correct?

0:22:020:22:03

-Ooh, what a shame.

-Oh, just one out on the left there. 6 and 6.

0:22:030:22:06

-But well done.

-Thank you.

-Well done. You know, you were very nearly

0:22:060:22:10

heading for maximum points in that one, weren't you?

0:22:100:22:13

-I feel quite proud of myself.

-You did well.

-Thank you.

0:22:130:22:15

-Didn't he, Brain?

-Absolutely. I was trying to lull him

0:22:150:22:18

into a false sense of security by complimenting him,

0:22:180:22:21

-and look what he did.

-Well, it didn't work!

-LAUGHTER

0:22:210:22:24

-Will, you added 15 seconds in that zone.

-Hey!

0:22:240:22:27

-Lovely.

-This means, Roey Brains,

0:22:270:22:30

you have finished with a grand total

0:22:300:22:32

of 57 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:22:320:22:35

-That is a good score.

-Thank you ever so much.

0:22:350:22:37

Well done, everybody from Roey Brains.

0:22:370:22:40

So we've finished the individual zones

0:22:400:22:42

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

0:22:420:22:46

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

0:22:460:22:50

Roey Brains, you've added 57 seconds to your Brain Bank.

0:22:540:22:58

It's time now to put it to good use.

0:22:580:23:00

You need to answer two questions correctly each

0:23:000:23:03

within your 57 seconds to take home our jackpot today of £3,000.

0:23:030:23:08

Now, if you take too long,

0:23:080:23:10

there's still a chance of winning some money,

0:23:100:23:11

because The Brain has given you an extra two minutes

0:23:110:23:14

to get the answers required.

0:23:140:23:15

But as the seconds slip away, so do the pounds,

0:23:150:23:19

and if you run out of time, you run out of money. OK?

0:23:190:23:22

Now, Daniel, you've chosen the order in which the team are playing.

0:23:220:23:26

What's your thinking behind that?

0:23:260:23:27

Well, basically, we kind of all agreed

0:23:270:23:30

that the order we stood in didn't really matter,

0:23:300:23:32

except no-one wanted to be the last person.

0:23:320:23:35

I felt as the captain I had to take one for the team and do it.

0:23:350:23:37

So let's get down to business and start today's final.

0:23:370:23:41

Over to you, Brain.

0:23:410:23:42

Roey Brains, You will only face questions

0:23:420:23:45

from the games you've already seen today,

0:23:450:23:48

but for every game in the final,

0:23:480:23:50

I will only accept your first answer.

0:23:500:23:52

Beat me if you can.

0:23:520:23:54

So that's your huge challenge - to beat The Brain.

0:23:540:23:57

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

-Yep.

0:23:570:24:00

I need two correct answers from you before we can pass on to Will.

0:24:000:24:04

You need to get two right, Will, and then down the line

0:24:040:24:07

until we get to Daniel. OK?

0:24:070:24:09

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

0:24:090:24:12

Solve the riddle.

0:24:150:24:16

Left?

0:24:210:24:23

No.

0:24:230:24:25

Find the hidden word.

0:24:250:24:26

This dog belongs to Stella, Brad or Mike. Erm...

0:24:270:24:30

Pass.

0:24:350:24:36

What phrase is it?

0:24:390:24:41

Erm...

0:24:410:24:43

Pass.

0:24:470:24:49

Which line won the game?

0:24:530:24:55

A.

0:24:550:24:57

Correct.

0:24:570:24:58

What is the word?

0:24:580:24:59

Historic.

0:24:590:25:00

Yes. Will.

0:25:000:25:02

Solve the riddle.

0:25:020:25:04

The middle.

0:25:070:25:08

Yes.

0:25:080:25:09

Count the dogs and add the numbers.

0:25:090:25:12

That's 2 on the left and 4 on the right.

0:25:170:25:20

-No.

-Don't know why I said 4.

0:25:220:25:24

Pass.

0:25:310:25:32

Where are the oil cans?

0:25:390:25:42

Er, 3, 9 and 8?

0:25:430:25:47

Incorrect.

0:25:470:25:49

-You can pass.

-Pass, please.

0:25:590:26:01

How many times past the needle?

0:26:040:26:06

2 on the left, 3 on the right.

0:26:080:26:10

Right. Jess.

0:26:100:26:12

Female seasons?

0:26:170:26:19

Nope.

0:26:190:26:20

Mixture.

0:26:250:26:26

Yes.

0:26:260:26:28

D.

0:26:310:26:33

Incorrect.

0:26:330:26:34

On the left.

0:26:410:26:42

Yes. Daniel.

0:26:420:26:44

Where are the dummies?

0:26:500:26:52

1, 5, 9.

0:26:520:26:55

No.

0:26:550:26:56

It is 3 on the left, 11 on the right.

0:27:020:27:05

Incorrect.

0:27:050:27:06

Quickly.

0:27:080:27:10

-Sorry, time is up.

-APPLAUSE

0:27:110:27:14

The answer was India.

0:27:140:27:17

So sorry, Roey Brains,

0:27:170:27:19

because you were doing so well at the start of the show.

0:27:190:27:23

And then suddenly it all went wrong in the final, didn't it?

0:27:230:27:27

-Oh, well.

-What a shame.

-The pressure got to you all.

0:27:270:27:30

-Bit gutted, but we did our best.

-Yeah.

-What did you think, Brain?

0:27:300:27:33

I beat you, but remember this -

0:27:330:27:36

you're all beautiful, you're all young.

0:27:360:27:40

Why, Mr Craven has jumpers in his wardrobe older than you are.

0:27:400:27:44

Well, thank you for playing the game,

0:27:440:27:46

and thank you at home for watching today.

0:27:460:27:47

I hope you enjoyed playing along.

0:27:470:27:49

But for now, though, it's goodbye from Roey Brains...

0:27:490:27:52

-ALL:

-Bye!

0:27:520:27:53

-..goodbye from Brain...

-Goodbye.

0:27:530:27:55

..and from me. See you next time.

0:27:550:27:57

That's how the team got on,
