Hello, it's me, the friendly brain.

0:00:020:00:04

Sharp wits and agile minds are what our team of four contestants

0:00:040:00:08

will need today.

0:00:080:00:09

Have a go at these examples of the type of games the team might face.

0:00:090:00:13

What is the common link between these four pictures?

0:00:160:00:19

Now try this one.

0:00:250:00:27

Traffic lights -

0:00:270:00:28

count how many times the lights come on.

0:00:280:00:31

Think you're right?

0:00:360:00:37

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

0:00:370:00:39

Now, watch whether our team today can get the questions right

0:00:390:00:43

as they try to Beat The Brain.

0:00:430:00:45

APPLAUSE

0:01:020:01:04

Show your appreciation for the nation's favourite host,

0:01:040:01:08

it's John Craven.

0:01:080:01:10

Well, thank you very much for that.

0:01:100:01:12

Hello, welcome to Beat The Brain.

0:01:120:01:14

This is the quiz specially designed for you to play along at home

0:01:140:01:18

and help improve your mental agility.

0:01:180:01:21

Let's meet the brain that needs no training.

0:01:210:01:23

How are you today, Brain?

0:01:230:01:25

I'm super, John,

0:01:250:01:26

and here are some words that rhyme with Craven -

0:01:260:01:29

raven, haven

0:01:290:01:31

and misbehavin'!

0:01:310:01:33

Well, we don't want you misbehaving today, Brain!

0:01:330:01:35

Let's meet our teams, shall we?

0:01:350:01:37

Introduce yourselves, please.

0:01:370:01:39

I'm Artemis and I'm a business development executive.

0:01:390:01:42

I'm Adam and I'm a property manager.

0:01:420:01:44

I'm Thomas and I'm a student.

0:01:440:01:46

I'm Olly, I'm the team captain and I'm a university support manager.

0:01:460:01:50

-APPLAUSE

-Well, welcome to the show, guys.

0:01:500:01:52

Have you got a name, team captain?

0:01:520:01:53

Yes, our team name is Brains of Steel.

0:01:530:01:56

Why is that, Brains of Steel?

0:01:560:01:58

So, we all know each other cos we play for a rugby club

0:01:580:02:00

called the King's Cross Steelers,

0:02:000:02:02

which is the world's first gay-inclusive rugby club,

0:02:020:02:05

which set up 20 years ago.

0:02:050:02:06

So, it seemed a natural progression to be brains, steel -

0:02:060:02:10

came out by accident as we all sat down

0:02:100:02:12

in the clubhouse after training.

0:02:120:02:14

And, Adam, here in the UK,

0:02:140:02:15

do you play in your own league or how does it work?

0:02:150:02:17

Yeah, we play in a league, so we have our own merit league

0:02:170:02:20

that we play in Essex and we all play in different divisions, too.

0:02:200:02:23

So, Olly is in the first division

0:02:230:02:24

and us three here have just joined in the third division.

0:02:240:02:27

Well, you're obviously sporting types, raring to go.

0:02:270:02:29

I wonder if you're going to score against The Brain today, though?

0:02:290:02:32

We'll have to wait and see,

0:02:320:02:34

because this is how it all works.

0:02:340:02:36

The show's brain is divided into six zones.

0:02:360:02:39

Logic, Memory,

0:02:390:02:41

Orientation, Observation,

0:02:410:02:43

Language and Multi-tasking.

0:02:430:02:46

Now, The Brain will select four of those six zones

0:02:460:02:48

for you to play today.

0:02:480:02:50

And, Olly, as captain, you must then nominate which of your team members

0:02:500:02:53

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

0:02:530:02:57

You're playing for time instead of points,

0:02:570:02:59

with every correct answer adding three seconds to your total,

0:02:590:03:03

to your Brain Bank.

0:03:030:03:04

And the more time you build up in that Brain Bank,

0:03:040:03:06

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

0:03:060:03:10

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

0:03:100:03:13

So, Brains of Steel, are you ready to play?

0:03:130:03:16

-Yeah, we're ready to play.

-Yeah.

0:03:160:03:18

Right, well, time to find out, then, which zone you'll be facing first.

0:03:180:03:21

Brain, a zone, please.

0:03:210:03:23

So, Olly, as team captain,

0:03:290:03:31

who are you going to nominate in the Observation Zone?

0:03:310:03:33

We've got a bit of a strategy to work out who's doing what first,

0:03:330:03:38

and at the moment, if this comes up first,

0:03:380:03:41

Artemis is happy and confident to be able to take this one.

0:03:410:03:43

Good. Well, come and join me, Artemis.

0:03:430:03:45

APPLAUSE

0:03:450:03:48

-Thank you.

-Do you agree with Olly's decision there?

0:03:480:03:51

Yeah, observation, I think I'm quite good at.

0:03:510:03:54

Part of my job is driving around London,

0:03:540:03:57

so I've got to be very observant,

0:03:570:03:59

looking out for all the road signs,

0:03:590:04:01

motorists, cyclists...

0:04:010:04:03

Well, let's see how you do, then, in the Observation Zone.

0:04:030:04:05

-Ready to play, Artemis?

-Yeah.

0:04:050:04:07

You'll play two games in this zone.

0:04:070:04:09

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each. OK?

0:04:090:04:12

So, Brain, the first game, please.

0:04:120:04:15

-Hello, Artemis.

-Hi.

0:04:150:04:17

-You like aerospace, yes?

-I do.

0:04:170:04:19

-If you were a spaceman...

-Uh-huh.

0:04:190:04:21

..who would you like to end up in space alone with?

0:04:210:04:24

Ooh, tough question.

0:04:240:04:25

No, it isn't.

0:04:250:04:26

-LAUGHTER

-I'd probably say Morgan Freeman,

0:04:260:04:31

just because I think he's a great actor,

0:04:310:04:34

erm, and I think if anything was to happen,

0:04:340:04:36

I'm sure he'd be able to save the day for me.

0:04:360:04:39

No, he wouldn't. He'd probably say,

0:04:390:04:40

"Don't ask me, I'm an actor."

0:04:400:04:43

Anyway, here's the first game.

0:04:430:04:45

-Artemis...

-Yeah.

0:04:480:04:50

Tell me which numberplate you saw.

0:04:500:04:53

-To help you out, have a trial run.

-OK.

0:04:530:04:55

-OK.

-So, which of those six was it?

0:05:010:05:03

It was XU48...

0:05:030:05:05

..GJL.

0:05:070:05:08

-So, you're saying number one?

-Mm-hm.

0:05:090:05:12

-You are correct.

-Fantastic.

0:05:120:05:14

-Are you ready to play it again, then, Artemis?

-Ready.

0:05:140:05:17

Off we go.

0:05:170:05:18

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:05:180:05:22

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

0:05:220:05:26

Your game starts now.

0:05:260:05:28

-Number

-2. Number 2, you're saying?

-Yeah.

-Are you correct?

0:05:360:05:40

You are, indeed. So, the next one, please.

0:05:400:05:42

-That went quicker.

-Erm...

0:05:480:05:49

-Five.

-Number five, you think it was.

0:05:510:05:54

Oh, number one.

0:05:540:05:56

No.

0:05:560:05:57

So, third one, please.

0:05:570:05:59

What number was that?

0:06:080:06:09

-Erm, I'm going for number four.

-Number four.

0:06:110:06:13

Let's see if you're correct.

0:06:130:06:15

-Yes.

-Yes, you are indeed.

0:06:160:06:17

So, that was two numberplates out of three.

0:06:170:06:20

-Not bad going for a start.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:06:200:06:22

Right, let's get on to game two.

0:06:220:06:24

Here's your second game, Artemis.

0:06:240:06:26

Count the number of times the lights come on.

0:06:280:06:31

To get your eye in,

0:06:310:06:32

I'll give you a trial run.

0:06:320:06:34

I'm thankful I don't see that combination in London...

0:06:520:06:54

-LAUGHTER

-..but I'm saying 18.

0:06:540:06:57

-18, you reckon, Artemis?

-Yeah.

0:06:570:06:58

Are you right?

0:06:580:07:00

-Let's see.

-You are, indeed.

0:07:000:07:01

Good, you're doing well on all of these

0:07:010:07:04

road traffic questions, aren't you?

0:07:040:07:05

So, let's see how you do when we play for real.

0:07:050:07:08

Please remember, Artemis,

0:07:080:07:09

-I can only accept your first answer.

-OK.

0:07:090:07:12

-How many?

-19.

0:07:260:07:27

19, you reckon.

0:07:270:07:29

Is he right?

0:07:290:07:31

Yes, he is. Well done, Artemis. Next one, please.

0:07:310:07:33

I'm thinking 17.

0:07:480:07:49

17.

0:07:500:07:52

-18.

-18, just one off.

0:07:520:07:54

One more.

0:07:540:07:55

Oh.

0:08:120:08:13

-I'm going to go for 19 again.

-You're going for 19 again.

0:08:140:08:17

Let's see if you're right this time.

0:08:170:08:19

No, 15. Only 15. Difficult, though.

0:08:190:08:21

-Very hard.

-Yeah, yeah, very hard.

0:08:210:08:24

What do you think, Brain?

0:08:240:08:25

Never mind, Artemis.

0:08:250:08:26

-You added nine seconds in that zone...

-That's good.

0:08:260:08:29

..which means that Brains of Steel

0:08:290:08:31

have nine seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:08:310:08:33

-That's a very good start.

-Thank you.

0:08:330:08:34

-Well done, Artemis.

-Thank you.

0:08:340:08:36

-Good to see you.

-You too.

0:08:360:08:37

Please rejoin your team-mates.

0:08:370:08:40

So, time to find out our next zone and who is going to be taking it on.

0:08:400:08:44

Brain, zone, please.

0:08:440:08:45

So, Logic. Olly, who do you reckon is going to be best in that zone?

0:08:510:08:54

If you're happy that I take this one,

0:08:540:08:56

then Multi-tasking, if it comes up,

0:08:560:08:58

-one of you two is going to have to do it.

-I can multi-task.

0:08:580:09:01

-You can do that?

-I think you're more logical.

0:09:010:09:03

So, I think I'll be taking Logic, then.

0:09:030:09:05

Well, come and join me, then, Olly, in the Logic Zone.

0:09:050:09:08

APPLAUSE

0:09:080:09:10

Are you a logical sort of person, really?

0:09:110:09:13

-Erm, you could say I'm logical at times...

-Mm-hm.

0:09:130:09:16

..so, yes, yes.

0:09:160:09:17

I hear you can do the Haka?

0:09:170:09:19

-LAUGHTER

-I can do a form of the Haka.

0:09:190:09:22

How does it vary?

0:09:220:09:24

So, it's known as the Haka Vogue.

0:09:240:09:26

So, it start off with the Haka,

0:09:260:09:27

and then slowly changes into Madonna's Vogue dance.

0:09:270:09:31

LAUGHTER

0:09:310:09:32

That must be a sight to be seen!

0:09:320:09:34

Well, let's see how you do.

0:09:340:09:36

Brain, please, can we reveal what is the first game

0:09:360:09:39

Olly will be playing?

0:09:390:09:40

-Hello, Olly.

-Hello.

0:09:400:09:42

Here's your first game.

0:09:420:09:44

Olly, I will show you a series of four pictures.

0:09:470:09:50

Your challenge is to find the common link.

0:09:500:09:54

To give you some practice,

0:09:540:09:55

have a trial run.

0:09:550:09:56

What do you reckon is the common link between those four images?

0:09:590:10:04

Clock,

0:10:040:10:05

wood,

0:10:050:10:07

needle...

0:10:070:10:09

fire.

0:10:090:10:10

I really can't think of anything linking them up.

0:10:140:10:17

You've got a clock, wood...

0:10:170:10:19

Burning time...

0:10:190:10:21

..a needle and fire.

0:10:210:10:22

So, that could be a fire something...

0:10:220:10:25

Something needle...

0:10:250:10:26

I honestly can't think of anything that would connect them.

0:10:260:10:29

Time.

0:10:290:10:30

Shall we find out what the answer is?

0:10:300:10:32

-I think you're going to have to, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:10:320:10:34

Can we have the answer, please?

0:10:340:10:36

Work - clockwork, woodwork,

0:10:360:10:38

needlework, firework.

0:10:380:10:40

-It seems obvious now.

-Yeah.

0:10:400:10:42

It always seems obvious afterwards.

0:10:420:10:45

But are you ready to take on The Brain?

0:10:450:10:47

-I think as ready as I'll ever be.

-Right, off we go then.

0:10:470:10:50

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

0:10:500:10:52

but you will only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:10:520:10:58

Your game starts now.

0:10:580:11:00

Sleigh, marriage...

0:11:030:11:05

..clock...

0:11:060:11:07

Clockwork?

0:11:080:11:10

Ride.

0:11:100:11:11

Door.

0:11:110:11:13

Oh, no, this is terrible.

0:11:130:11:15

HE CHUCKLES

0:11:150:11:17

Knock, vows,

0:11:180:11:20

sled ride...

0:11:200:11:21

-No. Can I pass them?

-You can pass, yeah.

0:11:220:11:24

I think I'm going to have to pass this one.

0:11:240:11:26

Bell, OK.

0:11:260:11:27

-HE LAUGHS

-On we go.

0:11:270:11:29

Coffee... Coffee, book,

0:11:330:11:34

shoes...

0:11:340:11:35

Shoes...

0:11:370:11:38

Charity.

0:11:380:11:40

Running out of time.

0:11:410:11:42

-I think I'll have to pass that one as well.

-Oh, dear.

0:11:440:11:46

-Pass, pass.

-I'm doing bad at this, I'm doing bad at this.

0:11:460:11:49

It was shop.

0:11:490:11:51

Coffee shop,

0:11:510:11:52

bookshop,

0:11:520:11:53

shoe shop, charity shop. Obvious when you know.

0:11:530:11:56

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

0:11:560:12:00

Never mind, Olly.

0:12:000:12:01

Try the second game.

0:12:010:12:02

Identify the phrase or saying

0:12:060:12:08

from the cryptic visual puzzle.

0:12:080:12:10

Have a trial run, Olly.

0:12:100:12:11

Cloud nine?

0:12:150:12:16

Cloud nine, well done, yeah.

0:12:180:12:19

Let's see how you do when you play it for real.

0:12:190:12:22

Off we go.

0:12:220:12:23

Your game starts now.

0:12:230:12:24

-Higher education?

-Higher education? Is that the answer?

0:12:270:12:31

It is, indeed. Next one, please.

0:12:310:12:33

You can keep on guessing.

0:12:370:12:38

30 seconds.

0:12:400:12:41

Or you can pass.

0:12:440:12:45

Wolf within a wolf? Hidden Wolf?

0:12:450:12:47

You can pass, if you want?

0:12:500:12:52

Erm...

0:12:520:12:54

Yeah, I'll have to pass that one.

0:12:540:12:55

What's the answer?

0:12:550:12:56

Wolf in sheep's clothing.

0:12:560:12:58

All right, OK. Last one. What's this one?

0:12:580:13:00

10 seconds.

0:13:000:13:01

-Five seconds.

-Black and blue bruised?

0:13:050:13:08

Two seconds. Running out of time.

0:13:080:13:10

Out of time, I'm afraid.

0:13:100:13:12

What was the answer, Brain?

0:13:120:13:14

Bolt from the blue.

0:13:150:13:17

-HE CHUCKLES

-I've not done well there.

0:13:170:13:20

-If it's any help, I didn't get that one, either.

-Good, good.

0:13:200:13:23

So, Brain, you were hard on Olly.

0:13:230:13:26

I beat you good, Olly.

0:13:260:13:28

And you're a big boy, too!

0:13:280:13:30

You added three seconds in that zone.

0:13:310:13:34

This means in total, Brains of Steel

0:13:340:13:37

have 12 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:13:370:13:39

-APPLAUSE

-12 in the bank.

0:13:390:13:41

-So, well done and thank you for playing.

-Thank you.

0:13:410:13:44

So, halfway through with Adam and Thomas still to play.

0:13:440:13:48

So, how do you two think things are going?

0:13:480:13:51

-Good.

-Yeah.

-We've got a steady pace.

0:13:510:13:54

-We can manage this.

-We can do this.

0:13:540:13:55

We've got time to make up, but we can definitely do it.

0:13:550:13:58

Right, let's move on to the next two zones.

0:13:580:14:01

Let's find out which one is next

0:14:010:14:03

and who is going to take it on.

0:14:030:14:05

Brain, the zone, please.

0:14:050:14:06

Memory it is. So, Olly,

0:14:110:14:13

who's going to come into the Memory Zone?

0:14:130:14:16

This one will be Adam.

0:14:160:14:17

Everyone else was scared of this zone,

0:14:170:14:19

so we're glad that it's come up and we've still got Adam to play.

0:14:190:14:22

Right, Adam, come and join me in the Memory Zone.

0:14:220:14:24

APPLAUSE

0:14:240:14:26

Good to see you.

0:14:280:14:29

How do you feel about being in this zone?

0:14:290:14:32

I'm very thankful that that's just come up.

0:14:320:14:33

Yeah, retention of information, I think, I'm HOPING,

0:14:330:14:36

that it will work well for this. Definitely.

0:14:360:14:39

And I heard that you'd memorised part of the Bible, is that right?

0:14:390:14:42

I had. At school, they asked us to memorise as much as we can.

0:14:420:14:45

I came in a week later having memorised the first few pages.

0:14:450:14:48

Not that I can remember much of it now, but...

0:14:480:14:50

"In the beginning..."

0:14:500:14:52

And also, all American states?

0:14:520:14:55

Yeah, all 50. So, Alabama, Alaska,

0:14:550:14:57

Arizona, Arkansas, on from there...

0:14:570:15:00

We haven't got time for all 50, definitely.

0:15:000:15:02

I believe you, I believe you.

0:15:020:15:04

Well, let's see how you do. Don't forget,

0:15:040:15:06

there are another 18 precious seconds on offer in this Zone.

0:15:060:15:09

That's three seconds for every correct answer, so, Brain,

0:15:090:15:12

please reveal the first game that Adam will be playing.

0:15:120:15:15

-Hello, Adam.

-Hi.

0:15:150:15:17

Here's your first game.

0:15:170:15:18

Remember where the pictures were once they've disappeared.

0:15:210:15:25

You can warm up by having a trial run.

0:15:250:15:28

Where are the red slippers?

0:15:350:15:37

I think that was at 2 and 4.

0:15:370:15:39

Number 2 and number 4, you're saying. Let's see if you're correct.

0:15:390:15:42

-You are indeed, yeah. Well done, Adam.

-Yeah.

0:15:440:15:46

-Are you ready to play it again?

-Yeah, I am indeed.

-Off we go.

0:15:460:15:50

Your game starts now.

0:15:500:15:51

Where are the submarines?

0:15:570:15:59

-The submarines...

-Number 1 and number 6.

0:15:590:16:02

Number 1 and 6, you're saying.

0:16:020:16:03

Jolly good. Correct. Next one, please.

0:16:070:16:09

Where are the clocks?

0:16:180:16:20

Er, number 2, number 3 and number 9.

0:16:200:16:24

Are you correct? Let's find out.

0:16:240:16:25

You are indeed, yes. Working well for you, this game.

0:16:250:16:28

-Yeah.

-Last one coming up.

0:16:280:16:29

Where are the martinis?

0:16:370:16:40

-Oh...

-So that's number 2, number 7,

0:16:400:16:43

number 9 and number 12.

0:16:430:16:46

2, 7, 9 and 12.

0:16:460:16:48

-Correct. Maximum points on that round.

-Phew!

0:16:480:16:51

-Let's go on to game two, shall we?

-Yep, indeed.

-Thank you, Brain.

0:16:510:16:55

Here's game two, Adam.

0:16:550:16:56

You will see different ingredients being added to a pot.

0:17:000:17:04

You must tell me how many of each went in.

0:17:040:17:07

Here's a trial run of what I mean.

0:17:070:17:09

-So...

-There was... Yeah, there was three broccoli.

0:17:210:17:24

-I kept them on that hand...

-Yes.

0:17:240:17:26

-There were two peppers so I think it's B.

-You're going for B.

-Yep.

0:17:260:17:30

Let's see if you correct.

0:17:300:17:32

You are. Well done, yeah.

0:17:320:17:33

-Yeah.

-Pity you've not got three hands.

-Yeah...

0:17:330:17:35

Go for toes, go for toes.

0:17:350:17:38

So, let's find out how many things pop in to the cooking pot

0:17:380:17:41

-when we play for real, OK?

-OK.

-Off we go.

0:17:410:17:44

Your game starts now.

0:17:440:17:46

-So...

-What went in the pot?

0:17:580:18:00

So it was three onions, so it has to be C.

0:18:040:18:08

It has to be C, right. Let's see if that's right.

0:18:080:18:11

Correct.

0:18:110:18:13

Next one, please.

0:18:130:18:14

How many that time?

0:18:270:18:29

So there was three carrots and three broccoli

0:18:290:18:32

-so it has to be B.

-B again. Let's see if you're right.

0:18:320:18:36

-Yeah, well done.

-Yeah.

-One more to come.

0:18:360:18:39

OK, so there's definitely two onions and two carrots,

0:18:530:18:56

so the only one left is D.

0:18:560:18:59

-D, you're saying.

-Yeah.

-Let's find out.

0:18:590:19:01

-Yes. How about that? Full house, there.

-Thanks.

0:19:010:19:05

-Yes, well done.

-APPLAUSE

0:19:050:19:07

Olly's faith in you and your belief in your memory

0:19:070:19:10

have certainly paid dividends, haven't they?

0:19:100:19:12

I'm glad that came up.

0:19:120:19:13

-Definitely!

-Yeah. What do you think, Brain?

0:19:130:19:15

Adam, you added 18 seconds in that Zone.

0:19:150:19:18

This means Brains Of Steel have 30 seconds in their Brains Bank.

0:19:180:19:22

-Well done. Well done, Adam.

-APPLAUSE

0:19:220:19:26

So, Thomas, you are our final player.

0:19:260:19:29

Why don't you come and join me and we'll find out which one

0:19:290:19:32

of the three remaining Zones you'll be playing.

0:19:320:19:34

APPLAUSE

0:19:340:19:36

-Hiya, John.

-Hi, Thomas.

-Has it going?

0:19:390:19:41

How's it going for your team, do you reckon?

0:19:410:19:43

Yeah, we're doing quite well, actually.

0:19:430:19:45

We're getting there. Slow and steady wins the race.

0:19:450:19:48

Now, we've got three Zones left, I reckon -

0:19:480:19:50

Orientation, Multitasking and Language.

0:19:500:19:53

Which of those three would you like to come up?

0:19:530:19:55

Well, I'd love language.

0:19:550:19:57

Well, let's see what Zone comes up for you, OK?

0:19:570:20:00

Please, Brain, may we have the Zone?

0:20:000:20:02

It's Language, how about that?

0:20:070:20:09

-Yes!

-Is that going to be lucky for you?

0:20:090:20:11

That's a nice bit of serendipity there. Here we go, I'm ready.

0:20:110:20:14

Right, OK. Can we have the first game, please, Brain?

0:20:140:20:17

Hello, Thomas.

0:20:170:20:18

Hello, Brain.

0:20:180:20:19

Sing a short song about water now.

0:20:190:20:21

Er, erm...

0:20:210:20:23

# At zero degrees, I tend to freeze

0:20:230:20:25

# From water in to ice. #

0:20:250:20:28

-Thomas?

-Yeah?

0:20:290:20:31

-Never sing that song again.

-Yeah. Good advice, good advice.

0:20:310:20:34

Here's the first game...

0:20:340:20:35

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

0:20:380:20:43

Have yourself a trial run.

0:20:430:20:45

Spell slack.

0:20:450:20:48

Let's have a look and see if that's correct.

0:20:520:20:54

Indeed, well done.

0:20:540:20:57

OK?

0:20:570:20:58

-No problem.

-That was easy.

-That was very quick, that was really...

0:20:580:21:01

-Yeah, we'll see.

-..very, very quick.

0:21:010:21:03

Let's see how you do when we play it for real.

0:21:030:21:06

Thomas, please remember -

0:21:060:21:07

-once you've said a letter, you cannot change your mind.

-OK.

0:21:070:21:11

Your game starts now.

0:21:110:21:13

Diary.

0:21:140:21:16

Let's see if that's right.

0:21:230:21:25

Yes, well done. Next one, please.

0:21:250:21:27

Attack.

0:21:270:21:29

Yeah, well done. Good, one more to go.

0:21:390:21:42

Lipstick.

0:21:420:21:43

Well done, that's correct. Yes.

0:21:540:21:57

Well, that was incredibly quick, Thomas.

0:21:570:21:59

I couldn't get the letters written down in time!

0:21:590:22:02

Let's see how you do in game two.

0:22:020:22:03

Here's your second game.

0:22:030:22:05

Find the word that fits between the other two.

0:22:090:22:12

Each dash represents a letter.

0:22:120:22:15

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

0:22:150:22:18

Art.

0:22:220:22:24

Art - modern art, art gallery.

0:22:240:22:26

-Yes, you're correct. Yeah, OK?

-Yeah.

0:22:260:22:28

So, let's move on swiftly to play the game.

0:22:280:22:31

You can have as many guesses as you like

0:22:310:22:33

but I will not move on to the next question

0:22:330:22:36

until you give me the correct answer or pass.

0:22:360:22:39

You only have 45 seconds to answer three questions.

0:22:390:22:43

Your game starts now.

0:22:430:22:45

Spin, wheel...

0:22:470:22:48

Doctor.

0:22:480:22:50

Doctor, spin, right, correct.

0:22:500:22:51

Next one, please.

0:22:510:22:53

Horse.

0:22:530:22:55

Gosh, you're quick. Next one.

0:22:560:22:58

Wine...

0:22:580:23:00

Er...

0:23:000:23:01

Navy...

0:23:030:23:05

-Wine cellar...

-25 seconds.

0:23:050:23:07

Wine bottle, wine cork...

0:23:070:23:11

-Keep on guessing.

-Wine vineyard...

0:23:110:23:14

Navy...

0:23:150:23:17

Marine, Navy, blue Marine... Royal Navy...

0:23:170:23:20

Er, in the Navy...

0:23:200:23:24

Wine...

0:23:240:23:26

Five seconds left.

0:23:260:23:30

A long word...

0:23:300:23:31

And you're out of time, I'm afraid.

0:23:310:23:33

Let's find out what that missing word was.

0:23:330:23:36

-Wine merchant and Merchant Navy.

-Oh, crikey, yeah.

0:23:360:23:38

-Yeah.

-So easy when you know, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:23:380:23:40

But you did incredibly well, didn't he, Brain?

0:23:400:23:43

Yes, he did well

0:23:430:23:44

-and he has very long eyelashes.

-Thank you, Brain.

0:23:440:23:47

Thomas, you added 15 seconds in that Zone.

0:23:470:23:50

This means, Brains Of Steel,

0:23:500:23:53

you have finished with a grand total of 45 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:530:23:57

-So, that is a good amount to have.

-Thank you, John.

0:23:570:24:00

Nice to see you, Thomas.

0:24:000:24:01

Rejoin the team.

0:24:010:24:03

We've finished the individual Zones now

0:24:030:24:05

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

0:24:050:24:09

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

0:24:090:24:12

Well, Brains Of Steel, you've built up 45 seconds in your four Zones.

0:24:150:24:20

You can now use that time to try to Beat The Brain

0:24:200:24:23

and take home today's jackpot of £3,000.

0:24:230:24:26

To win, you each need to answer questions correctly

0:24:260:24:30

within your 45 seconds.

0:24:300:24:32

If you can't, you can still take home some cash,

0:24:320:24:34

because the Brain has allocated two further minutes

0:24:340:24:36

for you to get the answers, but as the seconds slip away,

0:24:360:24:39

so does the cash at the rate of £25 a second.

0:24:390:24:43

If you run out of time, you run out of money.

0:24:430:24:46

Now, Olly, as the team captain, you've chosen the order of play.

0:24:460:24:50

-Yeah.

-What's your logic behind that?

0:24:500:24:52

We decided we'd just do it by our playing numbers in rugby.

0:24:520:24:55

We got Adam, 1, Artemis at 7, me at 13 and Thomas at 14.

0:24:550:24:59

Well, we'll see what the Brain's got in store for you,

0:24:590:25:02

because time to get serious.

0:25:020:25:03

Let's start today's final.

0:25:030:25:06

Over to you, Brain.

0:25:060:25:08

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

0:25:080:25:11

but for every game in the final,

0:25:110:25:13

I will only accept your first answer.

0:25:130:25:16

Brains Of Steel, beat me if you can.

0:25:160:25:19

That's the challenge, rugby players. Can you do it?

0:25:190:25:23

-We can.

-Yeah.

0:25:230:25:24

Well, as always, will be starting with the player on the left,

0:25:240:25:26

that's Adam. I need two correct answers from you, Adam,

0:25:260:25:29

before we can pass on down the line, OK?

0:25:290:25:31

-Yeah.

-Everybody got that?

0:25:310:25:33

Good luck.

0:25:330:25:34

Let's start the game.

0:25:340:25:36

What numberplate?

0:25:390:25:40

Five.

0:25:430:25:45

Yes.

0:25:450:25:47

So s...

0:25:470:25:49

Pass.

0:25:530:25:55

Skip.

0:26:000:26:02

-Where are the blackbirds?

-2, 5 and 7.

0:26:020:26:05

-Artemis.

-Yep.

0:26:070:26:08

What is the word?

0:26:080:26:10

Grand...

0:26:100:26:11

National? Er, yes.

0:26:110:26:13

Yes.

0:26:130:26:14

What phrase is this?

0:26:140:26:16

-Once in a blue moon.

-Yes. Olly.

0:26:160:26:19

Seven.

0:26:240:26:27

Correct.

0:26:270:26:28

What's in the pot?

0:26:310:26:33

-A.

-Yes. Thomas.

0:26:350:26:37

Sprout.

0:26:380:26:39

Incorrect.

0:26:450:26:46

Case.

0:26:510:26:53

Correct.

0:26:530:26:54

OK.

0:26:570:26:59

Where are the lamps?

0:26:590:27:01

7, 2, 6.

0:27:010:27:03

-You're correct! Stop the clock.

-Yes!

0:27:030:27:05

APPLAUSE

0:27:050:27:07

Congratulations, guys. Well done, well done.

0:27:090:27:12

-You have won £2,025.

-Whoa!

0:27:120:27:15

Oh, my god.

0:27:150:27:16

-That's good.

-Well done.

0:27:180:27:20

A really good team effort there.

0:27:200:27:21

Couldn't have been better, could not have been better.

0:27:210:27:24

Anyway, enjoy the money. Have a great time with it.

0:27:240:27:26

-And, Brain?

-I'm absolutely distraught.

0:27:260:27:29

A great, great game and thank you for watching today.

0:27:310:27:33

I hope you enjoyed playing along.

0:27:330:27:35

For now, it's goodbye from Brains Of Steel...

0:27:350:27:38

-Bye.

-Goodbye.

-See you.

0:27:380:27:39

-..it's goodbye from the Brain...

-Goodbye.

0:27:390:27:42

..and from me, see you next time on Beat The Brain.

0:27:420:27:45

I gave you two special play at home questions at the start of the show.

0:27:470:27:51

Time to see whether you got them right.

0:27:510:27:54

What is the common link between these four pictures?

0:27:540:27:57

The answer is...

0:27:570:27:58

And what about the second? Count how many times the lights come on.

0:28:010:28:05

The answer is...

0:28:100:28:11

Whether you got those right or wrong,

0:28:130:28:15

you can always improve your mental muscle by watching us next time

0:28:150:28:19

on Beat The Brain.

0:28:190:28:21

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.

Four members of a gay rugby team try to scrum it against the Brain and win the £3,000 prize.
