Hello. I'm The Brain.

0:00:030:00:04

There are some tricky games for our team to tackle today.

0:00:040:00:07

Why don't you try a couple yourself?

0:00:070:00:10

Count the red shoes.

0:00:120:00:13

What veg is in the pot?

0:00:220:00:24

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

0:00:290:00:32

Now watch how our team does today, as they attempt to...

0:00:320:00:35

Beat The Brain!

0:00:350:00:36

APPLAUSE

0:00:530:00:55

Please show your appreciation for our very own

0:00:550:00:57

genial genius, John Craven.

0:00:570:01:00

HE LAUGHS

0:01:000:01:01

Well, thank you very much and welcome to Beat The Brain.

0:01:010:01:04

Now, today's four contestants will be tested on how their minds work,

0:01:040:01:08

rather than on their general knowledge.

0:01:080:01:10

They'll face tricky challenges, tantalising teasers

0:01:100:01:14

and perplexing problems,

0:01:140:01:15

all designed to allow you to play along at home as well.

0:01:150:01:18

So, let's welcome our majesty of the mind.

0:01:180:01:21

How are you feeling today, Brain?

0:01:210:01:23

Oh, I'm feeling brilliant, complex, intelligent,

0:01:230:01:26

amazing and invincible, Johnny.

0:01:260:01:28

Wow! In that kind of mood?

0:01:280:01:30

Well, we've got a team, I think,

0:01:300:01:32

more than willing to take you on, so let's meet them now.

0:01:320:01:35

-Please introduce yourselves.

-I'm Maria and I'm an actuary.

0:01:350:01:38

I'm Louise and I'm an English teacher.

0:01:380:01:40

I'm Emma, I'm a teaching assistant in a primary school.

0:01:400:01:43

I'm Rachel, I'm the team captain

0:01:430:01:45

-and I'm a maths teacher.

-APPLAUSE

0:01:450:01:47

Welcome, everybody. And, Rachel, as the team captain,

0:01:470:01:50

what name have you chosen for the team?

0:01:500:01:52

Well, we have the team name The Poker Mugs.

0:01:520:01:55

And why is that?

0:01:550:01:57

Well, the lovely Maria invited us all to play poker,

0:01:570:02:00

-and it's become a regular thing.

-So you were the poker expert, Maria?

0:02:000:02:04

-I was the expert, yes.

-And you other three didn't know how to play it?

0:02:040:02:07

-Not at all.

-So how do they do now? Are they as good as you, Maria?

0:02:070:02:11

Um... Yeah, they talk a lot. Too much, I think.

0:02:110:02:15

But, yes, they are good, they are getting better.

0:02:150:02:17

Well, today, you're playing for big money.

0:02:170:02:20

So, are you ready to take on The Brain?

0:02:200:02:22

-Think so.

-Ready as we'll ever be.

-Well, here's how it works.

0:02:220:02:25

The show's Brain is divided into six Zones -

0:02:250:02:28

Logic, Memory, Orientation,

0:02:280:02:30

Observation, Language

0:02:300:02:31

and Multi-tasking.

0:02:310:02:33

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

0:02:330:02:36

play today, and, Rachel, as the team captain, it's up to you to

0:02:360:02:39

decide which of the members will be best in each of the Zones. OK?

0:02:390:02:44

Right, you'll face a series of questions in your Zone, with each

0:02:440:02:48

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

0:02:480:02:51

The more time you build up,

0:02:510:02:53

the better your chance of beating The Brain in today's final

0:02:530:02:56

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

0:02:560:03:00

So, Poker Mugs,

0:03:000:03:01

shall we discover which Zone you're going to be playing first?

0:03:010:03:05

-Yes, please.

-Right. Brain, the Zone, please.

0:03:050:03:08

So, Rachel, who is going to have a go at Multi-tasking?

0:03:130:03:17

I think it's our poker champion, Maria.

0:03:170:03:20

Right, Maria, come and join me.

0:03:200:03:22

APPLAUSE

0:03:220:03:26

It's all down to you that we have The Poker Mugs here today.

0:03:260:03:29

A little bit, yes.

0:03:290:03:30

My husband was to blame for teaching me poker,

0:03:300:03:32

-but we play a lot of card games together.

-Right, OK.

0:03:320:03:35

You'll play two games in this Zone.

0:03:350:03:38

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each,

0:03:380:03:41

so let's play the Multi-tasking Zone.

0:03:410:03:44

Brain, what's the first game?

0:03:440:03:46

-Hello, Maria.

-Hello, Brain.

0:03:460:03:49

-You play poker, yes?

-Yes.

-Show me your hand.

0:03:490:03:52

I love your nail varnish.

0:03:530:03:56

THEY CHUCKLE

0:03:560:03:57

What colour is that?

0:03:570:03:58

I think it is tropical Caribbean, or something.

0:03:580:04:01

-No it isn't, it is losing to The Brain.

-Oh!

0:04:010:04:04

JOHN LAUGHS

0:04:040:04:06

Here's your first game.

0:04:060:04:07

Count the number of times

0:04:090:04:11

the named object appears in the spinning wheels.

0:04:110:04:14

To help you out, Maria, have a trial run.

0:04:140:04:17

Count the suns.

0:04:170:04:18

-One, two, three, four.

-Mm-hm.

0:04:200:04:24

Five, six, seven.

0:04:240:04:26

Eight, nine.

0:04:260:04:28

-Nine...

-Nine, I think.

0:04:290:04:32

-I think it is nine.

-Shall we see if you are correct?

-Please.

0:04:320:04:35

-It is...

-Hurray!

-APPLAUSE

0:04:350:04:38

Well, that's a good start. But that was just a trial.

0:04:380:04:41

-OK, are you ready to play?

-Yes.

-Right. Off we go.

0:04:410:04:44

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

0:04:440:04:47

Your game starts now.

0:04:470:04:50

Count the cows.

0:04:510:04:52

Three, four, five, six.

0:04:560:04:58

Seven, eight.

0:04:580:05:00

-Eight.

-Eight cows, you are saying.

0:05:050:05:07

Is that correct?

0:05:070:05:09

-It is indeed.

-Yes!

0:05:090:05:10

-OK, so, are you ready for the second one?

-Yes.

-Off we go.

0:05:100:05:14

Count the bananas.

0:05:140:05:16

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven,

0:05:170:05:20

eight, nine, ten, 11, 12,

0:05:200:05:23

13...

0:05:230:05:24

-14.

-14 bananas.

0:05:250:05:28

Is that right?

0:05:290:05:31

-Yes.

-Guys! So good!

0:05:310:05:33

Right, next one.

0:05:330:05:35

Count the broccoli.

0:05:350:05:36

I hate broccoli.

0:05:360:05:38

One, two, three, four, five, six,

0:05:380:05:40

seven, eight, nine, ten, 11,

0:05:400:05:42

12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17,

0:05:420:05:45

18, 19, 20. 20.

0:05:450:05:47

-20 broccolis, even though you hate them.

-I hate them.

0:05:470:05:50

Let's see if that's correct.

0:05:500:05:52

-Yes, that's amazing!

-Well done.

-APPLAUSE

0:05:520:05:54

These are very difficult.

0:05:540:05:55

A lot of people find this game particularly hard,

0:05:550:05:57

but not you yet, anyway. Right. Are you ready for game two?

0:05:570:06:00

Oh, no, I don't know. My heart's beating a bit.

0:06:000:06:03

THEY LAUGH

0:06:030:06:04

-Say yes.

-Yes.

-You're ready.

-I'm ready. I was born ready.

0:06:040:06:07

OK, Brain.

0:06:070:06:09

You were too good there, let's hope I can get you with this second game.

0:06:090:06:12

Tell me how many people are left on the bus, not including the driver.

0:06:150:06:19

To get your eye in, have a trial run.

0:06:190:06:22

One, two, three, four, five, six.

0:06:240:06:28

-Um, one.

-One left on the bus, you think.

0:06:310:06:34

Is that right?

0:06:340:06:36

Two left on the bus.

0:06:360:06:38

-Ready to play?

-Ready to play.

-Off we go.

0:06:380:06:40

Your game starts now.

0:06:400:06:42

One, two, three, four,

0:06:460:06:50

five, six, seven, eight,

0:06:500:06:52

nine, ten, 11.

0:06:520:06:55

-How many are left on the bus, apart from the driver?

-I think two.

0:06:550:06:59

Two, you're saying.

0:06:590:07:01

Is that right?

0:07:010:07:02

-One.

-No!

-One out there.

0:07:030:07:07

OK. Second bus, please.

0:07:070:07:09

One, two, three, four...

0:07:120:07:15

..five...

0:07:160:07:18

six.

0:07:190:07:21

-How many are left on.

-I think three.

0:07:230:07:25

Three left on, you're saying, Maria. Are you right?

0:07:250:07:28

Yes, you are.

0:07:290:07:31

APPLAUSE

0:07:310:07:32

Yeah. And here comes the third bus.

0:07:320:07:34

One, two, three,

0:07:360:07:39

four, five, six, seven,

0:07:390:07:42

eight, nine, ten.

0:07:420:07:44

-Oh!

-So how many are left on that bus?

0:07:460:07:48

John, I think it might be seven.

0:07:480:07:50

Seven, you are saying. Is that correct?

0:07:500:07:53

-Seven!

-Yes!

0:07:530:07:55

APPLAUSE

0:07:550:07:56

So that there is a very, very good start for your team.

0:07:560:08:00

-Maria did well, didn't she, Brain?

-Sadly, yes.

-Yes!

0:08:000:08:03

You had 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:08:030:08:07

This means, in total, Poker Mugs have 15 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:08:070:08:11

-APPLAUSE

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:08:110:08:13

If you could rejoin the rest of your poker players.

0:08:130:08:16

It's time to find out what our next Zone is going to be,

0:08:160:08:19

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

0:08:190:08:22

-Language. Rachel.

-Oh!

0:08:270:08:29

-Who is going to be best at Language?

-Well...

0:08:290:08:31

-We have an English teacher.

-Yes, we think...

0:08:310:08:34

It will be lovely Louise.

0:08:340:08:36

Right, come on, then.

0:08:360:08:38

APPLAUSE

0:08:380:08:40

-So, you are an English teacher.

-I am.

0:08:400:08:43

And apart from teaching, have you got any other ambitions?

0:08:430:08:46

Well, I do have a sneaky one,

0:08:460:08:47

-but I'm not sure I should reveal it to you, really, John.

-What's that?

0:08:470:08:51

I do love Countryfile, and I would quite like to be on it one day,

0:08:510:08:54

but, you know, don't want to do anyone out of a job, obviously.

0:08:540:08:58

-You don't want my job, then?

-Not your job.

0:08:580:09:00

-I'll stick with what I'm doing for now.

-Jolly good.

0:09:000:09:02

-Ready to play Language now?

-I think so.

-OK.

0:09:020:09:04

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

0:09:040:09:08

-Hello, Louise.

-Hello, Brain.

0:09:080:09:11

You just want to be a presenter so you can be next to my Johnny,

0:09:110:09:14

-don't you?

-I don't want to take Johnny away from you, Brain.

0:09:140:09:17

No-one must ever take Johnny away.

0:09:170:09:20

Here's your first game.

0:09:200:09:21

Rearrange the newspaper cuttings to form a word.

0:09:240:09:27

To give you some practice, have a trial run.

0:09:270:09:30

So what word could that be?

0:09:350:09:37

-Made up of those three sections.

-Kestrel.

0:09:380:09:41

-Mmm.

-Is it kestrel?

-Kestrel, you are saying.

0:09:430:09:46

Is that correct?

0:09:460:09:48

-Yeah, the bird, kestrel. Well done. Happy about that?

-I think so, yes.

0:09:480:09:52

-Ready to play for real?

-Yes.

-Right, off we go.

0:09:520:09:54

Your game starts now.

0:09:540:09:56

-Window.

-Window, you're saying.

0:10:000:10:02

That's correct. Jolly good.

0:10:020:10:04

Off we go, a second one.

0:10:040:10:06

-Biscuit.

-Biscuit.

0:10:060:10:08

That was quick, yes, well done.

0:10:080:10:10

30 seconds left.

0:10:120:10:15

Betrothed.

0:10:150:10:16

-Betrothed! Yes.

-APPLAUSE

0:10:170:10:19

Well, that was incredibly quick.

0:10:190:10:21

-Ready for game two?

-Yes.

0:10:210:10:23

Brain, please can we have game two?

0:10:230:10:25

-You're just upsetting me now, Louise.

-Sorry, Brain.

0:10:250:10:28

Here's your second game.

0:10:280:10:30

I will give you a word. You need to spell it to me backwards.

0:10:320:10:36

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

0:10:360:10:39

Spell annul.

0:10:410:10:43

L-L...

0:10:470:10:48

U-N-A.

0:10:500:10:52

-No.

-Let's have a look.

0:10:520:10:54

-No, no, no.

-No.

-It is two Ns. Yeah.

-L-U-N-N-A.

0:10:540:10:58

-Yeah.

-I'm glad that was the trial run.

-Are you ready to go?

0:10:580:11:02

-Yeah.

-Off we go.

0:11:020:11:04

Please remember, once you've said a letter, Louise,

0:11:040:11:06

you cannot change your mind.

0:11:060:11:08

Your game starts now.

0:11:100:11:12

Ocean.

0:11:120:11:13

Yes, that's correct.

0:11:240:11:25

-LOUISE EXHALES

-Off we go, with the next one.

0:11:250:11:28

Chimney.

0:11:280:11:29

Is that right?

0:11:390:11:40

Yes, well done. Yes, difficult one, that one.

0:11:400:11:43

-I know, I know!

-They get harder I'm sure, yes.

0:11:430:11:45

So, third one to come.

0:11:450:11:47

Squirrel.

0:11:470:11:49

Yes, yes. Well done, that is a really hard one.

0:12:030:12:07

I got that one wrong and I was trying to do it here.

0:12:070:12:09

And you did exceptionally well.

0:12:090:12:12

-This is a very good start for you, for the Poker Mugs.

-Thank you.

0:12:120:12:16

-Yeah.

-I'm relieved...

-Isn't it, Brain?

0:12:160:12:18

Absolutely, a clean sweep, Louise.

0:12:180:12:20

-You added 18 seconds in that Zone.

-Yes!

0:12:200:12:24

Which means in total, Poker Mugs have 33 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:12:240:12:29

-Wow, that is great.

-Thank you.

-That is a fantastic start, Louise,

0:12:290:12:32

-if you go and rejoin the rest of the ladies.

-Thank you, John.

0:12:320:12:34

Right, let's find out what Zone is going to be next

0:12:340:12:37

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

0:12:370:12:41

-It's Memory.

-Oh...

0:12:460:12:47

Who do you think will be best in the Memory Zone?

0:12:470:12:50

-Do you think you can take it on, Emma?

-Do you want me to?

0:12:500:12:53

-Oh, yeah, go on.

-OK, then.

0:12:530:12:55

-It's going to be you, Emma.

-OK.

0:12:550:12:57

Come and join me, then, in the Memory Zone.

0:12:570:13:00

APPLAUSE

0:13:000:13:02

-Thank you.

-How are you, Emma?

0:13:040:13:05

You must be feeling really good at the moment...

0:13:050:13:08

-Yes.

-..on behalf of the team.

-Yes, top of the world.

-Yes.

0:13:080:13:11

-And no pressure on you.

-No, no pressure!

0:13:110:13:13

And how do you feel about being in the Memory Zone?

0:13:130:13:15

-Honestly? Quite nervous!

-Do you have a good memory?

0:13:150:13:18

No, I have an appalling long-term memory.

0:13:180:13:20

I think maybe just a short-term memory is needed now.

0:13:200:13:23

-Let's hope so.

-Yes.

-Yes.

-OK. Ready?

-Yes.

0:13:230:13:26

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

0:13:260:13:31

-Hello, Emma.

-Hello, Brain.

0:13:310:13:33

I hear you once received a very special birthday present.

0:13:330:13:36

-What was it?

-My husband!

0:13:360:13:38

JOHN LAUGHS Wonderful.

0:13:380:13:40

Did you keep the receipt?

0:13:400:13:42

THEY LAUGH

0:13:420:13:43

Here's your first game.

0:13:430:13:46

-Oh.

-Ah-ha.

0:13:470:13:48

You'll see different ingredients being added to a pot.

0:13:480:13:51

You must tell me how many of each went in.

0:13:510:13:54

You can warm up with a trial run.

0:13:540:13:57

So, of those four options,

0:14:110:14:14

which do you think went into that cooking pot?

0:14:140:14:17

I'm not completely sure, but I think it's D.

0:14:200:14:23

D.

0:14:240:14:25

And you're right.

0:14:260:14:28

-Yes.

-Yes, well done. Yes.

0:14:280:14:29

-Oh...

-So, not easy.

-No.

-Are you ready to play?

0:14:290:14:34

No. But let's do it!

0:14:340:14:36

Let's do it anyway.

0:14:360:14:38

OK, Brain. The game, please.

0:14:380:14:40

Your game starts now.

0:14:400:14:43

So, which ingredients were in the stew?

0:14:560:15:00

D.

0:15:040:15:05

-D.

-Three peppers, one carrot...

0:15:070:15:09

Right, yes, good.

0:15:090:15:11

That's correct.

0:15:110:15:12

-OK.

-OK, here comes your second one.

0:15:130:15:15

OK...

0:15:150:15:16

One pepper, one onion.

0:15:210:15:24

Two peppers...

0:15:240:15:25

Two onions...

0:15:250:15:28

-Two peppers...

-EMMA WHISPERS

0:15:280:15:30

-OK.

-Right.

-I think it was three broccoli,

0:15:300:15:33

two onions...

0:15:330:15:34

I'm going to go...

0:15:360:15:38

Oh, I think it was three peppers.

0:15:400:15:42

-Up to you.

-I'm going to go for B.

0:15:440:15:46

You're going for B?

0:15:460:15:48

-Three papers, three broccoli, two onions.

-OK, right.

0:15:480:15:52

Is that correct?

0:15:520:15:54

-It is indeed.

-JOHN LAUGHS

0:15:540:15:56

-OK.

-Ready for the third one?

-Yes.

-Here we come.

0:15:560:15:59

-One broccoli, two broccoli..

-EMMA WHISPERS

0:16:050:16:07

One onion. Ooh!

0:16:110:16:12

Three, four peppers. OK!

0:16:120:16:14

JOHN LAUGHS

0:16:140:16:16

OK, I was going to say one carrot, but that's not an option.

0:16:160:16:18

So, four peppers...

0:16:180:16:20

..how many..?

0:16:200:16:21

-Oh, no. I've lost it now.

-Ah.

0:16:210:16:25

-What do you think it is?

-Four peppers, so it's A or D...

-Yes.

0:16:250:16:29

..and then, er...

0:16:290:16:32

-It is going to be a guess, then?

-..there were two carrots. I think...

0:16:320:16:35

-It's either one or two onions...

-Yes.

-It's up to you.

0:16:380:16:42

If you're saying A or D.

0:16:450:16:46

I'm going to go for A.

0:16:490:16:51

It's correct!

0:16:510:16:52

JOHN LAUGHS AND APPLAUSE

0:16:520:16:54

Yes, that was an incredibly good score.

0:16:540:16:57

Right, here comes game two.

0:16:570:16:59

Here's your second game.

0:16:590:17:00

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

0:17:020:17:06

Have a trial run.

0:17:060:17:08

So...

0:17:140:17:15

..which one was that?

0:17:170:17:19

Er...

0:17:210:17:24

..D.

0:17:240:17:25

D.

0:17:250:17:27

Was that correct?

0:17:270:17:28

-No, it was A.

-It was A!

-Yes.

0:17:280:17:30

Brain, we're ready for you.

0:17:300:17:32

Your game starts now.

0:17:320:17:35

Oh, dear!

0:17:430:17:45

THEY LAUGH

0:17:450:17:48

OK, this has gone horribly wrong.

0:17:480:17:50

I'm going to make a stab in the dark

0:17:500:17:52

and go for...

0:17:520:17:55

B.

0:17:550:17:56

Let's see if you're right.

0:17:560:17:58

-Yes.

-EMMA LAUGHS

0:17:580:18:00

Not a bad stab in the dark.

0:18:000:18:02

Do you know what? I feel I should play poker, with this luck.

0:18:020:18:05

I've got a feeling you're playing poker with me and the Brain.

0:18:050:18:08

No, I'm so not.

0:18:080:18:10

-Right, second game, please.

-Oh, dear.

0:18:100:18:12

Which one?

0:18:190:18:21

Mm...

0:18:240:18:26

It's not good to rely on Lady luck.

0:18:270:18:29

I'm going to have to do it again though. I'm going to go for...

0:18:290:18:32

C.

0:18:320:18:34

Let's see if you're right.

0:18:340:18:36

Yes!

0:18:360:18:38

-How lucky can you be?

-EMMA LAUGHS

0:18:380:18:40

I need to buy a lottery ticket.

0:18:400:18:42

And the last one, please.

0:18:430:18:46

Which line was that, do you reckon?

0:18:510:18:54

I'm so not looking at my team-mates,

0:18:570:18:59

-because they know the answer and I don't.

-Mm...

-Er...

0:18:590:19:02

Need an answer.

0:19:080:19:10

B.

0:19:110:19:12

Let's see if that's right.

0:19:120:19:14

-And it is!

-APPLAUSE

0:19:140:19:16

I really don't know what happened!

0:19:180:19:20

That is a formidable score you managed to achieve, Emma.

0:19:200:19:23

Somehow.

0:19:230:19:25

Somehow!

0:19:250:19:26

Didn't she do well, Brain?

0:19:260:19:28

Emma, you added 18 seconds in that Zone.

0:19:280:19:31

This means in total, Poker Mugs have 51 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:19:310:19:36

That is a very good score at this stage of the game.

0:19:360:19:39

-Thank you.

-So, congratulations, Emma.

0:19:390:19:41

-APPLAUSE

-Please rejoin the team.

0:19:410:19:44

Rachel, our captain, that leaves you now as the final player,

0:19:440:19:48

so why don't you join me

0:19:480:19:49

and find out which of the three remaining zones you will be playing?

0:19:490:19:53

APPLAUSE

0:19:530:19:55

-Well...

-RACHEL GASPS

0:19:560:19:58

-What a score.

-What a team.

-Yes, fantastic.

0:19:580:20:00

-You must be so proud of them so far.

-I am, brilliant.

0:20:000:20:02

I work it out that there's Logic, Observation

0:20:020:20:05

-and Orientation still to come.

-Yes.

0:20:050:20:07

Which one don't you want of those three?

0:20:070:20:10

-It's Observation I can't do!

-THEY LAUGH

0:20:100:20:13

-Shall we find out...

-Yes.

0:20:130:20:14

..which Zone the Brain is going to choose for you?

0:20:140:20:17

Brain, the Zone, please.

0:20:170:20:19

-It's Orientation.

-Phew!

-So, not the one you didn't want.

0:20:220:20:25

-No!

-How do you think you'll be at Orientation?

-Should be OK.

0:20:250:20:28

I'm pretty good with directions, I use my hands a lot, that might help.

0:20:280:20:33

Well, we'll see what comes up.

0:20:330:20:34

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

0:20:340:20:38

-Hello, Rachel.

-Hello, Brain.

0:20:380:20:40

-You have beautiful blue eyes.

-Thank you, Brain.

0:20:400:20:43

That's enough of me being nice.

0:20:430:20:45

JOHN LAUGHS Here's your first game.

0:20:450:20:47

Tell me whether the hands are left or right.

0:20:490:20:52

Have a trial run.

0:20:520:20:53

-You said you were good with your hands.

-that's right, yes.

0:20:550:20:58

OK. I think the first one is a right hand,

0:20:580:21:01

then the second one is a left hand

0:21:010:21:03

and the third one is a right hand.

0:21:030:21:05

Right, let's see if that's right.

0:21:050:21:07

Right, it is indeed.

0:21:080:21:10

-Right, left, right. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:21:100:21:12

-Happy to play the game for real?

-Yes, let's go for it.

-OK.

0:21:120:21:15

Game, please, Brain.

0:21:150:21:16

You have a maximum of 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:21:160:21:20

Your game starts now.

0:21:200:21:22

OK, so, left, left, right.

0:21:240:21:28

-Left, left, right. Is that correct?

-Oh! No.

0:21:280:21:30

Left, left, left.

0:21:300:21:31

-Next one.

-OK.

0:21:310:21:33

Left...

0:21:330:21:35

..right...

0:21:350:21:37

-..left.

-Left, right, left.

0:21:370:21:39

That worked, that's right. Yes. One more to go.

0:21:390:21:42

That's, er...

0:21:420:21:44

-20 seconds left.

-Got 20 seconds, I'll take my time.

0:21:470:21:50

That's a right,

0:21:500:21:51

a right and a right.

0:21:510:21:54

Right, right, right.

0:21:540:21:55

-Yes, well done.

-JOHN LAUGHS

0:21:550:21:58

-Well, that's game over.

-Yes.

-Not a bad performance.

0:21:580:22:01

-Shall we find out what game two has in store?

-Yes, please.

0:22:010:22:04

-Can we have the game, please, Brain?

-Here's your second game.

0:22:040:22:07

Which wheel matches the one on the left?

0:22:090:22:12

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

0:22:120:22:15

Oh, that's quite confusing.

0:22:170:22:19

Which of those on the right matches the one on the left?

0:22:190:22:22

OK, so...

0:22:220:22:23

I think it's A.

0:22:230:22:24

-Mm-hm. Let's have a look.

-I haven't even looked at B, C and D.

0:22:260:22:28

Yes, it is indeed.

0:22:280:22:29

-OK, good.

-Well done.

0:22:290:22:31

-Ready for the game?

-OK, thank you.

-Right.

0:22:310:22:33

Can we have the game, please, Brain?

0:22:330:22:36

Your game starts now.

0:22:360:22:37

OK, I'm going to say A for the first one.

0:22:420:22:44

-A, you're going to say.

-Oh...

-No, it was D.

0:22:440:22:46

-Right.

-Here comes the second.

-OK, um...

0:22:480:22:50

-B.

-B, you think? Yes, that's correct.

0:22:520:22:56

One to go.

0:22:560:22:57

25 seconds left.

0:22:570:22:58

OK, so, I'm looking at a red next to a black.

0:22:580:23:02

Er, red, black, white, blue, yellow, green. D, I think.

0:23:020:23:07

-Correct.

-Good!

-Two out of three.

-That's OK.

-Pretty good, wasn't it?

0:23:070:23:10

I'm happy with that.

0:23:100:23:12

I think you Poker Mugs have done incredibly well.

0:23:120:23:15

-Thank you.

-Haven't they, Brain?

0:23:150:23:17

Absolutely.

0:23:170:23:18

Rachel, you added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:23:180:23:22

This means, Poker Mugs,

0:23:220:23:24

you have finished with a grand total of...

0:23:240:23:26

BRAIN GASPS ..63 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:260:23:29

-63. That is a very, very high score.

-Thank you.

0:23:290:23:33

-Congratulations, Rachel.

-Thank you, John.

-Please rejoin your team.

0:23:330:23:36

Well, we've finished the individuals Zones now

0:23:360:23:39

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

0:23:390:23:43

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

0:23:430:23:46

Poker Mugs,

0:23:490:23:50

you managed to build up a tremendous 63 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:500:23:54

And this is where you put that to good use.

0:23:540:23:57

You need to answer eight questions correctly,

0:23:570:23:59

that's two questions each, before those 63 seconds run out

0:23:590:24:02

to take home our top prize today of £3,000.

0:24:020:24:06

If you can't do that, there's still a chance to win some decent cash,

0:24:060:24:09

because the Brain has given you an extra two minutes

0:24:090:24:12

to come up with the answers.

0:24:120:24:13

As the time runs out, so does the cash,

0:24:130:24:16

at the rate of £25 a second

0:24:160:24:19

and if it runs out completely, you'll be left with nothing.

0:24:190:24:22

Rachel, as team captain,

0:24:220:24:24

you've chosen the order in which you're going to be playing.

0:24:240:24:27

What's your reasoning behind that?

0:24:270:24:29

The strategy is Maria led us off well in the first round,

0:24:290:24:32

-so she should lead us off again.

-Yes.

0:24:320:24:35

And Emma was so strong in her Zone,

0:24:350:24:37

we thought we should put Emma there to support us at the end.

0:24:370:24:39

-And you two in the middle?

-Yes, we'll just keep the momentum going.

0:24:390:24:43

You all did incredibly well.

0:24:430:24:45

So, time to get serious.

0:24:450:24:47

Let's start today's final.

0:24:470:24:49

-Good luck.

-Good luck.

-Good luck.

0:24:490:24:51

Brain, over to you.

0:24:510:24:53

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

0:24:530:24:57

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

0:24:570:25:02

Poker Mugs,

0:25:020:25:03

beat me if you can.

0:25:030:25:05

That's the challenge.

0:25:050:25:07

And as always, we'll be starting with the player on the left,

0:25:070:25:10

that's you, Maria.

0:25:100:25:11

I need two correct answers from you

0:25:110:25:13

before I can move on to the next player and so on down the line.

0:25:130:25:16

-Best of luck, Poker Mugs.

-Thank you.

0:25:160:25:18

Let's start the final.

0:25:180:25:20

Left or right hands?

0:25:230:25:26

Left...

0:25:260:25:27

..Left, right.

0:25:290:25:32

No.

0:25:320:25:33

Hygiene.

0:25:330:25:35

MARIA WHISPERS

0:25:400:25:43

Correct.

0:25:530:25:54

-MARIA WHISPERS

-What's in the pot?

0:25:570:25:59

C.

0:26:000:26:01

-BUS BELL

-Louise.

0:26:020:26:04

How many on the bus?

0:26:080:26:09

One?

0:26:100:26:11

Which wheel matches the one on the left?

0:26:140:26:17

B.

0:26:200:26:21

Yes.

0:26:210:26:23

-Laughter.

-Rachel.

0:26:240:26:26

Count the apples.

0:26:260:26:28

Five.

0:26:320:26:33

Yes.

0:26:330:26:35

RACHEL WHISPERS

0:26:370:26:39

C.

0:26:390:26:41

Emma.

0:26:410:26:43

A.

0:26:470:26:48

Correct.

0:26:480:26:50

Orchid.

0:26:500:26:52

-APPLAUSE

-Stop the clock!

0:26:590:27:01

Well done!

0:27:010:27:02

Congratulations, Poker Mugs.

0:27:020:27:05

You've won £2,150.

0:27:050:27:08

THEY APPLAUD AND LAUGH

0:27:080:27:11

-So, how about that?

-Well done, thank you.

0:27:110:27:13

-That's better than wine and chocolates when you're playing poker, isn't it?

-It is.

0:27:130:27:17

Back to Thornbury with all that money, enjoy yourselves,

0:27:170:27:20

-have a great party.

-Thank you.

-Thank you!

0:27:200:27:22

Thank you very much for playing. They did well, Brain, didn't they?

0:27:220:27:26

Yes, you ladies almost made me look like a real mug. But,

0:27:260:27:29

Mr Craven loves ME, not you, so I'm the real winner.

0:27:290:27:32

And I love you too, Brain.

0:27:320:27:33

Thank you all for watching at home today,

0:27:330:27:35

I hope you enjoyed playing along with us. For now,

0:27:350:27:37

it's goodbye from Poker Mugs...

0:27:370:27:40

-ALL:

-Goodbye!

0:27:400:27:41

-From the Brain...

-Goodbye.

0:27:410:27:43

And from me, bye for now.

0:27:430:27:45

Don't go just yet.

0:27:480:27:49

Here are the answers to the questions I gave you at the start of the show.

0:27:490:27:53

Count the red shoes.

0:27:530:27:55

The answer is...

0:27:590:28:01

six.

0:28:010:28:03
