Hello, Ms Brain here.

0:00:030:00:05

It's nearly time to see if our team of four have

0:00:050:00:08

the mental toughness to beat me.

0:00:080:00:10

But first here's a couple of challenges for you to try at home.

0:00:100:00:13

Are they left or right hands?

0:00:160:00:17

Now try this one.

0:00:240:00:25

How many times does each arrow pass its needle?

0:00:270:00:30

I'll ease your pain by giving you the answers at the end of the show.

0:00:350:00:38

Now watch today's team attempt to use all their grey matter in a contest to

0:00:380:00:43

Beat The Brain!

0:00:430:00:45

APPLAUSE

0:01:010:01:03

Please welcome a man who is not afraid of a challenge -

0:01:030:01:06

it's John Craven!

0:01:060:01:08

Well, thank you, hello and welcome to a brand-new show, Beat The Brain,

0:01:080:01:12

the quiz that tests not what you know, but how your mind works.

0:01:120:01:16

So get ready for a half-hour mental workout

0:01:160:01:18

with challenging questions and tricky puzzles

0:01:180:01:22

set by our resident brain.

0:01:220:01:24

So, what have you got for us today, Brain?

0:01:240:01:26

Oh, I've got 86 billion neurons, Johnny,

0:01:260:01:28

and some wonderfully complex games. I'm ready to play.

0:01:280:01:31

Well, that sounds very intimidating,

0:01:310:01:34

I wonder how our team are going to cope?

0:01:340:01:36

Let's meet them now. Please introduce yourselves.

0:01:360:01:39

I'm Rosie and I'm a student nurse.

0:01:390:01:41

I'm Heather, I'm also a student nurse.

0:01:410:01:43

I'm Brian and I'm also a student nurse.

0:01:430:01:45

I'm Jessica, I'm team captain, and you guessed it,

0:01:450:01:48

I'm also a student nurse.

0:01:480:01:51

Well, welcome, everybody. All studying at Huddersfield University.

0:01:510:01:54

Jessica, you're the team captain,

0:01:540:01:56

-what name have you chosen for the team?

-Erm, we decided on Adrenaline.

0:01:560:02:00

Adrenaline. A good medical word, but why choose it for your team?

0:02:000:02:04

Not only are four brains better than one, but obviously, four brains

0:02:040:02:08

on adrenaline, er, would give us the oomph we needed to beat the Brain.

0:02:080:02:12

Are you feeling a bit high on adrenaline at the moment, Heather?

0:02:120:02:15

-Yes.

-LAUGHTER

0:02:150:02:16

And, Jessica,

0:02:160:02:18

you're also president of the nursing society at the uni, aren't you?

0:02:180:02:21

Yeah, and we're all members of the graduation ball as well.

0:02:210:02:26

We're organising that this year.

0:02:260:02:28

-Oh, so not long to go till the big ball.

-No.

0:02:280:02:31

I hope that you don't need medical attention yourself afterwards!

0:02:310:02:34

LAUGHTER

0:02:340:02:36

-Are you ready to play?

-ALL: Yes.

0:02:360:02:37

Well, this is how it works.

0:02:370:02:39

The show's brain is divided into six zones.

0:02:390:02:42

Logic, Memory, Orientation,

0:02:420:02:44

Observation, Language and Multi-tasking.

0:02:440:02:48

Now, the Brain will select four out of those six zones for you

0:02:480:02:51

to play today, and, Jessica, as the captain, you must decide

0:02:510:02:54

which team member you think is best for playing each of those zones, OK?

0:02:540:02:58

You'll face a series of questions in your zone,

0:02:580:03:01

with each correct answer adding three seconds

0:03:010:03:03

to what we call your Brain Bank, and the more time you build up,

0:03:030:03:06

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

0:03:060:03:10

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

0:03:100:03:13

-So, are you ready to play?

-ALL: Yes.

0:03:130:03:16

Good, well, time to find out which zone you'll be facing first,

0:03:160:03:19

so, Brain, the zone please.

0:03:190:03:22

It's Memory.

0:03:270:03:29

So, Jessica, who are you going to nominate for the Memory Zone?

0:03:290:03:34

I think, seeing as Rosie's the youngest member of our group,

0:03:340:03:37

I think she'll be able to retain information longer than

0:03:370:03:40

-us more mature members.

-Yeah.

-Brain's a bit younger.

0:03:400:03:44

Yeah, so I pick Rosie.

0:03:440:03:45

Rosie, come and join me, please.

0:03:450:03:47

-So, you are the youngest. How old are you?

-I'm 20.

0:03:510:03:53

And what made you decide to go in for nursing?

0:03:530:03:56

It's always been a childhood kind of dream for me to do nursing,

0:03:560:03:59

and I just, I love it, everything about it.

0:03:590:04:01

And d'you think you've got a pretty good memory?

0:04:010:04:04

I hope so, yeah, I think I do. I like to think I do!

0:04:040:04:07

-Are you ready for the Brain to put you to the test?

-I am indeed.

0:04:070:04:10

Right, OK, well, you'll play two games in this zone.

0:04:100:04:13

Both games have three questions worth three seconds each,

0:04:130:04:16

so, Brain, what's the first game?

0:04:160:04:19

-Hello, Rosie.

-Hello, Brain.

0:04:190:04:21

Show me your thumbs.

0:04:210:04:22

-They're double-jointed.

-Are they?

0:04:240:04:26

I, see, I think, yeah, they are.

0:04:260:04:28

Can you wiggle 'em both ways?

0:04:280:04:30

-Yes!

-Yeah, thank you.

0:04:300:04:32

How wonderful, that made me happy.

0:04:320:04:34

-Here's your first game.

-OK.

0:04:340:04:36

Rosie, you will see four named pictures.

0:04:390:04:42

The pictures will disappear.

0:04:420:04:44

One will come back. Tell us what its name is.

0:04:440:04:47

-OK.

-To help you out, have a trial run.

-OK.

0:04:470:04:49

-Sporty.

-Sporty. Are you right?

0:04:540:04:57

-You are.

-Yay!

-So, are you a Spice Girls fan?

0:04:590:05:01

-Yes, I was trying to remember.

-But not in that kind of form anyway!

0:05:010:05:05

-No, er, no, but...

-Are you ready to play?

0:05:050:05:08

I am, yes, definitely.

0:05:080:05:09

Off we go, then. The game, please, Brain.

0:05:090:05:11

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

-OK.

0:05:110:05:14

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

0:05:140:05:17

Your game starts now.

0:05:170:05:19

The Beatles. Who was a yellow hat?

0:05:240:05:27

Was it Ringo?

0:05:270:05:29

Ringo, the hard hat, you think. Are you right?

0:05:290:05:32

-No, it was John.

-No.

0:05:320:05:33

I'm a Beatles fan as well! Sorry.

0:05:330:05:37

-Never mind, here's another one for you.

-Right.

0:05:370:05:39

Denise.

0:05:440:05:45

-Denise, you think.

-Was it Denise?

0:05:450:05:47

-Ah, yes!

-Yeah, well done.

0:05:470:05:49

Yay.

0:05:490:05:50

-Yes, so, er, the last one.

-OK.

0:05:500:05:53

-Morecambe.

-Who was the broccoli? Morecambe, you think.

0:05:590:06:01

-Was it Morecambe?

-Let's see if you were right.

0:06:010:06:03

-Yes!

-Yes, you were.

-Sorry, a bit hasty then.

0:06:030:06:05

Well, that's two out of three.

0:06:050:06:06

-That's six valuable seconds to start with.

-Yes, it is, that's good.

0:06:060:06:10

-Yes, OK. Ready for the next one?

-I am, yeah.

0:06:100:06:12

Could we have Game Two, then, please, Brain?

0:06:120:06:14

-Rosie, here's your second game.

-OK.

0:06:140:06:16

Remember where the pictures were once they've disappeared.

0:06:190:06:23

To get your eye in, have a trial run.

0:06:230:06:25

-Doughnuts, dummy and a sling.

-Yes.

0:06:300:06:33

-Where are the doughnuts?

-They're in 1 and 3.

0:06:330:06:37

-1 and 3, you're saying?

-Yeah.

0:06:370:06:40

-Yes. Well done, that's correct.

-Thank you.

0:06:400:06:42

See, I like doughnuts, so it's easy for me to remember.

0:06:420:06:45

I hope you do as well when you play for real.

0:06:450:06:47

Thank you. I hope so, too.

0:06:470:06:49

Let's play, please.

0:06:490:06:50

Please remember, I can only accept your first answer.

0:06:500:06:53

-OK.

-Your game starts now.

0:06:530:06:55

-Where are the roller-skates?

-Erm...

0:07:010:07:04

-4 and 6.

-4 and 6.

0:07:040:07:08

-Is that right? Yes!

-Yes! Nice one!

-Jolly good.

0:07:080:07:12

So, the second one coming up.

0:07:120:07:15

-Not doing too bad. OK.

-More in this time.

0:07:150:07:18

Where are the martinis?

0:07:210:07:22

7, 2 and 3.

0:07:220:07:25

7, 2 and 3?

0:07:250:07:27

-Yes.

-Nice one!

-You're good at remembering martinis!

-I am.

0:07:280:07:31

LAUGHTER

0:07:310:07:33

-So, are you ready for the last one?

-I am. Oh, wow, OK. More.

0:07:340:07:38

OK. I'm a Sherlock fan, so it should be OK.

0:07:400:07:43

Where are the pipes?

0:07:450:07:47

OK, erm... 9, 6, 7 and 12.

0:07:470:07:50

9, 6, 7 and 12.

0:07:500:07:54

-Is that right?

-It is!

-Yes! Thank you.

0:07:540:07:57

-That was an amazing performance.

-It is. Oh, thank you.

0:07:570:08:00

-She really did beat you in that one, didn't she, Brain?

-Absolutely.

0:08:000:08:04

-Do you want to beat me today, Rosie?

-I do indeed, Brain.

0:08:040:08:07

Rosie, you added 15 seconds in that Zone, and your joy is infectious.

0:08:070:08:12

This means in total, Adrenaline have 15 seconds in their Brain Bank!

0:08:120:08:18

Jolly good. That's a really good start, Rosie.

0:08:180:08:20

-If you'd like to rejoin your fellow members...

-Yay!

0:08:200:08:24

..we'll find out which our next Zone is going to be

0:08:240:08:28

and who is going to take it on.

0:08:280:08:30

Brain, the Zone, please.

0:08:300:08:31

Orientation it is.

0:08:370:08:38

So, Jessica, who's going to be best at Orientation?

0:08:380:08:42

Yeah, I think

0:08:420:08:43

because I've lived in so many different places growing up,

0:08:430:08:46

I'm very quick to orientate myself to new surroundings,

0:08:460:08:49

so, yes, I'll give this one a go.

0:08:490:08:51

So, Jessica, come and join me.

0:08:510:08:53

APPLAUSE

0:08:530:08:54

Hello, Jessica. So, you've lived in lots of different places, have you?

0:08:560:08:59

-I have, yes, quite a few places.

-Where have you been?

0:08:590:09:02

I've lived in London, Sheffield, Barnsley, Huddersfield...

0:09:020:09:06

-Mostly around Yorkshire.

-Yeah.

-Yeah. You're a Yorkshire gal.

0:09:060:09:09

-I am, yes, through and through.

-I'm a Yorkshire boy.

0:09:090:09:12

THEY LAUGH

0:09:120:09:13

When it comes to orientation, apart from moving around Yorkshire,

0:09:130:09:17

-what else makes you think you might be good in this zone?

-Erm...

0:09:170:09:20

I'm very good at putting myself in situations

0:09:200:09:23

and being able to visualise.

0:09:230:09:25

Shall we see if that confidence is justified?

0:09:250:09:28

LAUGHTER

0:09:280:09:30

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

0:09:300:09:34

-Hello, Captain Jessica.

-Hello!

0:09:340:09:37

-Can I come to your nurses' ball?

-No.

0:09:370:09:39

LAUGHTER

0:09:390:09:41

Here's the first game.

0:09:410:09:43

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

0:09:460:09:50

To give you some practice, have a trial run.

0:09:500:09:52

Right, OK, so the blue rectangle is on my right,

0:09:550:10:00

which means it would be 3.

0:10:000:10:02

3, you say. Are you correct?

0:10:020:10:04

You are indeed. Well done.

0:10:050:10:07

-Ready to play for real?

-I am, yes.

-Off we go.

0:10:070:10:09

The game, please.

0:10:090:10:11

Captain Jessica, you have a maximum of 45 seconds

0:10:110:10:14

to answer three questions, but remember,

0:10:140:10:17

I can only accept your first answer.

0:10:170:10:19

Your game starts now.

0:10:190:10:21

Right, OK, so, it's directly in front of me

0:10:220:10:26

and the yellow is to the right, so it's 7.

0:10:260:10:28

Number 7, you're saying. Are you correct?

0:10:280:10:31

-You are indeed. Yes. Next one, please.

-Right, OK.

0:10:310:10:34

So, the triangle is to my...

0:10:340:10:36

-..left, and the box is to my right.

-25 seconds.

0:10:380:10:42

Erm...

0:10:420:10:44

-2?

-2, you think?

0:10:440:10:47

Yes, you're right. Well done.

0:10:470:10:49

Not much time left for the third one.

0:10:490:10:51

-OK, and 3.

-3.

0:10:510:10:53

Well, that was pretty quick.

0:10:530:10:55

-No.

-No, it was number 1.

-Wrong, yeah.

0:10:550:10:58

-Never mind. It was two out of three.

-Two out of three ain't bad.

0:10:580:11:02

So, that's not bad. That's six seconds into your Brain Bank there.

0:11:020:11:07

-OK.

-OK, ready for the next one?

-Yeah.

-Off we go.

0:11:070:11:10

Captain Jessica, can I see your hands?

0:11:100:11:13

-You have beautiful hands.

-Thank you.

-Here's your second game.

0:11:150:11:19

Tell me whether the hands are left or right.

0:11:220:11:25

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

0:11:250:11:27

OK, so that would be left, right...

0:11:300:11:33

-Right.

-Left, right, right, you think. Is that correct?

0:11:350:11:39

No, I got it wrong.

0:11:390:11:40

-Left, right, left. So, not quite right.

-Yeah.

-It's all right, Jess.

0:11:420:11:46

-You can use your hands for this one.

-Yeah, I needed to do a bit of that.

0:11:460:11:49

I always imagine lots of people at home are all doing this as well.

0:11:490:11:53

So, feel free to use your hands as much as you like in this game.

0:11:530:11:57

-You ready to play?

-Right, yes, I am.

-Off we go.

0:11:570:11:59

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

0:11:590:12:03

Your game starts now.

0:12:030:12:05

OK. So, right, right...

0:12:070:12:10

-Right.

-Right, right, right, you're saying.

0:12:130:12:15

No, left, right, right. Next one.

0:12:150:12:18

SHE GIGGLES

0:12:200:12:21

Left...

0:12:210:12:23

Left...

0:12:230:12:24

-Right.

-Left, left, right. Is that correct?

0:12:250:12:28

-Left, left, left.

-Oh.

0:12:280:12:30

One to go. 20 seconds left.

0:12:300:12:31

Right, right, right.

0:12:400:12:43

Right, right, right. Is that correct? Yes, it is.

0:12:430:12:47

That was right, right, right, that one.

0:12:470:12:49

THEY LAUGH

0:12:490:12:50

-The captain didn't too badly there.

-No, she did good.

0:12:500:12:52

-She did really well.

-So, well done, Jessica.

0:12:520:12:54

-Let's find out what Brain thinks of your performance.

-OK.

0:12:540:12:58

Captain Jessica, it's Brainerella here. Please, can I go to the ball?

0:12:580:13:03

-Go on, then.

-Ah, thank you.

0:13:030:13:05

Jessica, you boosted your chances of winning today's final

0:13:050:13:08

by adding nine seconds in that Zone.

0:13:080:13:11

This means in total, Adrenaline have 24 seconds in their Brain Bank!

0:13:110:13:16

Well, well done, Jessica. Well done.

0:13:160:13:18

Nice to meet you, and if you could rejoin your team. Right.

0:13:180:13:21

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

0:13:210:13:25

Brain, Zone, please.

0:13:250:13:27

So, Jessica, who do you think, out of Brian or Heather,

0:13:320:13:35

will be best in the Observation Zone?

0:13:350:13:38

-I think we'll pick Heather for Observation.

-OK.

-You agree, Heather?

0:13:380:13:42

Erm...yeah?

0:13:420:13:43

LAUGHTER

0:13:430:13:45

Well, come and join me in the Observation Zone.

0:13:450:13:47

APPLAUSE

0:13:470:13:48

-Hi.

-Hello, Heather. You're a very busy person, aren't you?

-Oh, yes.

0:13:500:13:54

You're studying nursing, you've got two young children.

0:13:540:13:58

-Two children, yes.

-And you play a lot of netball.

-Yes.

0:13:580:14:00

-How do you manage to find time for all of that?

-I'm very organised.

0:14:000:14:04

I have about three diaries, a calendar,

0:14:040:14:07

and I write it all on my phone.

0:14:070:14:09

THEY LAUGH

0:14:090:14:10

Well, all the very best,

0:14:100:14:12

-and you think you'll be pretty good on the Observation Zone?

-Erm...

0:14:120:14:16

-we'll see.

-Right.

0:14:160:14:17

We'll see, because, don't forget,

0:14:170:14:19

there's another 18 precious seconds on offer in this Zone.

0:14:190:14:22

That's three seconds for every correct answer.

0:14:220:14:24

So, Brain, please reveal the first game that Heather

0:14:240:14:27

is going to be playing.

0:14:270:14:29

-Hello, Heather.

-Hello, Brain.

0:14:290:14:31

I hear you're a HUGE Spice Girls fan.

0:14:310:14:34

SHE GIGGLES

0:14:340:14:35

-Yes.

-I'm Brainy Spice. John is obviously Hot Spice.

0:14:350:14:40

Who are you?

0:14:400:14:41

-Sporty Spice.

-Whoa! Here's your first game, Sporty Heather.

0:14:410:14:47

-Yeah.

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

0:14:490:14:53

You can warm up with a trial run.

0:14:530:14:55

-80p.

-80p you reckon is the difference, are you correct?

0:15:020:15:07

And you are indeed.

0:15:070:15:08

-It can be quite a puzzling question, this, I think.

-Yeah.

0:15:080:15:11

It just depends how carefully you look at your small change.

0:15:110:15:13

-Do you always check your small change?

-Well, yeah,

0:15:130:15:16

being a student... Hard times.

0:15:160:15:18

Yeah, you need to do that, don't you?

0:15:180:15:20

So let's just see how observant you are. Off we go with the game.

0:15:200:15:24

You have 45 seconds to answer three questions correctly

0:15:240:15:28

but I will only accept your first answer.

0:15:280:15:30

Your game starts now.

0:15:300:15:32

-What's the difference in the amount?

-One pence.

0:15:380:15:40

One pence, you think,

0:15:400:15:42

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

0:15:420:15:44

-30 seconds left.

-Ten pence.

-Ten pence, you think.

0:15:470:15:50

No, £1.80 that time.

0:15:500:15:53

So here comes the final one.

0:15:530:15:54

20 seconds left.

0:15:570:15:58

-£1.

-£1, you think.

0:16:020:16:05

£1.98.

0:16:050:16:07

-I think you need to check that change more carefully.

-I know.

0:16:070:16:10

But it is a really tough round, that one,

0:16:100:16:12

-especially when it's against the clock.

-Yeah.

0:16:120:16:14

You have to think quickly and there's an awful lot of coins to look at.

0:16:140:16:17

Yeah, they were all muddled up as well.

0:16:170:16:19

-I think you didn't do too badly on that one.

-Thank you.

0:16:190:16:21

-So let's have the second game, please.

-Yup.

0:16:210:16:23

Here's your second game, Heather.

0:16:230:16:25

Tell me the order in which the balloons pop. Have a trial run.

0:16:280:16:31

-Red, yellow, white.

-Red, yellow, white you're saying.

0:16:380:16:40

Let's see if you're correct.

0:16:400:16:42

You are indeed. Well done. No problems with the test one, anyway.

0:16:430:16:47

How are you going to do for real? Let's find out.

0:16:470:16:50

Please remember I can only accept your first answer.

0:16:500:16:53

Your game starts now.

0:16:530:16:55

-Red, blue, yellow.

-Red, blue, yellow - is that right?

0:17:010:17:05

-It is indeed.

-Yes.

0:17:050:17:06

-Good stuff.

-So the second one, please.

0:17:060:17:08

-Blue, yellow, white.

-Blue, yellow, white.

0:17:120:17:17

Yes, well done. Here comes the third one.

0:17:170:17:20

Red...white, blue, yellow.

0:17:240:17:28

Red, white, blue, yellow.

0:17:280:17:30

No, the wrong way round.

0:17:310:17:33

So, Brain, I think you flummoxed her a little bit there.

0:17:340:17:37

-Yes, but she was a really good sport.

-She was.

0:17:370:17:40

-Heather, you got nine seconds in that Zone.

-Thank you.

0:17:400:17:43

This means in total, Adrenaline have 33 seconds in their Brain Bank.

0:17:430:17:47

APPLAUSE

0:17:470:17:49

-Well done.

-Thank you.

-Lovely to meet you, Heather.

-And you.

0:17:490:17:52

Please rejoin the team.

0:17:520:17:54

-So, Brian.

-Yes.

-You're the only one left.

-I know.

0:17:540:17:57

Why don't you come and join me and find out which of the three

0:17:570:18:00

-remaining Zones you'll be facing?

-APPLAUSE

0:18:000:18:04

-How are you feeling, Brian?

-Oh, good.

-OK.

0:18:060:18:08

-The girls did very well, didn't they? So far.

-Yeah.

0:18:080:18:11

Putting a bit of pressure on me here, so they are.

0:18:110:18:13

Well, let's see which of the three remaining Zones

0:18:130:18:15

you'll be facing, Brian.

0:18:150:18:17

Brain, can we have the Zone, please?

0:18:170:18:20

Are you any good multi-tasking, doing several things at once?

0:18:240:18:27

Erm, my wife might disagree, but yeah, I think

0:18:270:18:30

-I'm quite good at it, yeah.

-Shall we play?

-Yes, please.

0:18:300:18:32

Brain, please reveal the game that Brian will be taking on first.

0:18:320:18:37

-Hello, Brian.

-Hello, Brain.

-We almost share the same name.

-I know.

0:18:370:18:42

If a hippopotamus got a university place, where would he live?

0:18:420:18:46

In a hippopotamus house?

0:18:460:18:49

No, on a hippocampus.

0:18:490:18:51

THEY LAUGH

0:18:510:18:53

It's a brain joke. Here's your first game.

0:18:530:18:56

Count the number of times each arrow passes its needle.

0:18:590:19:02

-Have a trial run, Brian.

-OK.

0:19:020:19:05

How many times on the left and right?

0:19:140:19:16

Two on the left, four on the right.

0:19:160:19:18

Let's see if you're correct.

0:19:180:19:21

Yes, you are. Well done. Good, good.

0:19:210:19:24

-And I noticed you used your fingers on that one. It's a good one.

-Yeah.

0:19:240:19:27

As long as it doesn't go into double numbers.

0:19:270:19:29

Well, you can just go round again.

0:19:290:19:30

-OK.

-Yes.

-Ready to play for real?

-Yup.

-Can we have the game, please?

0:19:310:19:36

Please remember I'll only accept your first answer.

0:19:360:19:38

Your game starts now.

0:19:400:19:41

-One on the left, three on the right.

-One and three you're saying.

0:19:490:19:54

Yes, well done. Jolly good, next one, please.

0:19:540:19:56

-Three on the left and three on the right.

-Three and three.

0:20:060:20:09

-Yes, well done. Those fingers are working well for you.

-Yeah.

0:20:110:20:14

Last one, please.

0:20:140:20:16

-That went a bit faster.

-Yeah, it did, yeah.

0:20:240:20:27

Three on the left and five on the right.

0:20:270:20:29

Three and five, you're saying.

0:20:290:20:31

Yes. Well done. Maximum amount of seconds in that game.

0:20:310:20:37

See if you can do the same kind of performance on the second game.

0:20:370:20:40

Fingers crossed.

0:20:400:20:41

The maximum number of seconds altogether would be really useful.

0:20:410:20:44

-OK?

-Yeah.

0:20:440:20:46

-So, off we go with the second game.

-Here's your second game.

0:20:460:20:49

When the number of sheep matches the number I say,

0:20:510:20:54

add that number to the total.

0:20:540:20:56

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

0:20:560:20:59

Three, two, one,

0:21:030:21:06

four, three, four,

0:21:060:21:09

two, three, one, one.

0:21:090:21:13

-Nine?

-Nine, you're saying - is that right?

0:21:160:21:20

Yes, it is. And that really is multi-tasking.

0:21:200:21:23

Yeah, it is, that's quite tough that there, yeah.

0:21:230:21:25

But you seem to be doing very well.

0:21:250:21:27

Yeah, I don't really want to give too much away

0:21:270:21:29

on multi-tasking, I might have to do more housework or something.

0:21:290:21:33

Yes, she'll be watching carefully. But it's in your team's interest...

0:21:330:21:36

-Yeah, it is.

-..to get the maximum number of seconds.

0:21:360:21:39

-Say later you were just pretending.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:21:390:21:42

-Right, ready to play?

-Yes, please.

-Can we have the game, please?

0:21:420:21:45

Please remember I can only accept your first answer.

0:21:450:21:48

Your game starts now.

0:21:480:21:50

Two, four, two,

0:21:560:21:58

one, four, two,

0:21:580:22:01

one, three, three, one.

0:22:010:22:04

-What was the total?

-Erm, 11.

-11, you think, Brian.

0:22:060:22:09

Are you correct?

0:22:090:22:10

Yes, you are. Well done. Next one, please.

0:22:100:22:13

Four, two, one,

0:22:190:22:21

three, two, three,

0:22:210:22:23

one, two, three, two.

0:22:230:22:25

-Faster that time.

-Yeah, a wee bit faster. I think I got ten.

0:22:270:22:29

Ten you're saying. Is he right?

0:22:290:22:32

No, it's 12. You missed two out.

0:22:320:22:34

OK, next one, please.

0:22:340:22:35

Two, three, four,

0:22:410:22:42

one, three, two,

0:22:420:22:44

four, two, four, two.

0:22:440:22:46

Ugh.

0:22:470:22:49

Erm, I'll go... I think I lost myself towards the end but 14.

0:22:490:22:52

14, you're saying.

0:22:520:22:54

13 - just one out.

0:22:540:22:56

-She can be devilish, that one, can't she?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:22:560:22:59

-But you did very well.

-Thank you.

-You did very well indeed.

0:22:590:23:02

-Brain, what do you think?

-You did very well there, Brian.

0:23:020:23:06

-Thank you.

-I'm worried that my jackpot's in jeopardy,

0:23:060:23:09

because you've added 12 seconds in that Zone.

0:23:090:23:12

Which means, Adrenaline, you've finished with

0:23:120:23:14

a grand total today of 45 seconds in your Brain Bank.

0:23:140:23:18

-Good score.

-Good stuff.

-Well done, Brian.

-Cheers, thank you.

0:23:180:23:21

Nice to meet you, if you rejoin the team...

0:23:210:23:24

Well, we've finished the individuals' Zones now

0:23:240:23:26

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

0:23:260:23:30

and take home some really serious cash in today's Final.

0:23:300:23:33

Adrenaline, you've put 45 seconds into your Brain Bank

0:23:360:23:39

in the four opening Zones - the challenge now is to

0:23:390:23:42

answer eight questions correctly, that's two each, within that time.

0:23:420:23:46

Do that and you win our top prize of...

0:23:460:23:48

If you can't manage that,

0:23:490:23:51

you can still win a pretty decent amount of cash.

0:23:510:23:53

The Brain has generously given you a further two minutes

0:23:530:23:56

in which to answer but, as the clock counts down,

0:23:560:23:59

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

0:23:590:24:03

The longer you take, the less you win

0:24:030:24:06

and if the clock ticks down to zero, you walk away with nothing.

0:24:060:24:10

Now, Jessica, as the team captain,

0:24:100:24:11

you've chosen which order your players are going to face The Brain.

0:24:110:24:15

What's your logic in that?

0:24:150:24:16

Well, we just decided to go from oldest to youngest,

0:24:160:24:19

there's no real logic behind it.

0:24:190:24:21

-So you're the youngest?

-Yes.

-THEY LAUGH

0:24:210:24:25

-Right, are we ready?

-Yes.

-Because it's time to get serious.

0:24:250:24:28

Let's start today's Final.

0:24:280:24:30

Brain, over to you.

0:24:320:24:34

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

0:24:340:24:38

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

0:24:380:24:42

Adrenaline, beat me if you can.

0:24:420:24:45

-That's the challenge she's throwing down. Can you do it?

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:24:450:24:49

Well, we'll see.

0:24:490:24:51

As usual, Jessica, we'll start off with you, the player on the left,

0:24:510:24:55

I need two correct answers from you before we can pass on down the line.

0:24:550:24:58

-OK?

-Mm-hmm.

-The best of luck, let's start the Final.

0:24:580:25:01

Remember where the objects are.

0:25:040:25:07

-Where are the cows?

-4, 8, 2, 3.

0:25:080:25:14

No.

0:25:140:25:15

Blue, yellow, red.

0:25:180:25:19

Three, three, two,

0:25:210:25:24

four, two.

0:25:240:25:26

Eight.

0:25:260:25:28

No.

0:25:280:25:29

Left or right hands?

0:25:310:25:33

Left, right, right.

0:25:330:25:36

Yes. Brian.

0:25:360:25:38

Remember the image and name.

0:25:380:25:40

Voldemort.

0:25:440:25:45

Yes. What's the difference?

0:25:450:25:49

90p.

0:25:550:25:56

No.

0:25:560:25:58

Which viewpoint?

0:25:580:26:01

6.

0:26:020:26:04

No.

0:26:040:26:05

How many times past the needle?

0:26:050:26:07

Five left, four right.

0:26:100:26:12

Yes. Heather, remember where the objects are.

0:26:120:26:17

Where are the balloons?

0:26:170:26:18

2, 5, 4.

0:26:210:26:23

No.

0:26:230:26:24

Two, four, one,

0:26:240:26:27

four, two.

0:26:270:26:29

Ten.

0:26:290:26:31

Yes.

0:26:310:26:33

Left or right hands?

0:26:330:26:35

Right, left, right.

0:26:410:26:43

Yes, Rosie.

0:26:430:26:45

Hitchcock.

0:26:510:26:53

Nope.

0:26:530:26:54

Yellow, white, blue.

0:26:560:26:58

Yes.

0:26:580:26:59

OK, erm...4.

0:27:010:27:03

-Stop the clock.

-Yes!

0:27:030:27:06

APPLAUSE

0:27:060:27:07

Adrenaline, you have won £1,125.

0:27:090:27:13

So how about that, Brain?

0:27:130:27:15

I think you're the one who'll need some tender loving care now.

0:27:150:27:18

Yes, well, I've got four wonderful people that would really

0:27:180:27:21

help me out there, wouldn't they? Can I still come to the ball?

0:27:210:27:24

-Yes, of course you can, Brain.

-You can be my plus one.

-Oh, Brian.

0:27:240:27:29

Well, there we are.

0:27:290:27:31

Thank you all at home for watching today, I hope you've enjoyed

0:27:310:27:33

-playing along but, for now, it's goodbye from Adrenaline...

-Goodbye.

0:27:330:27:37

-Bye!

-..from The Brain...

-Goodbye.

0:27:370:27:40

..and from me.

0:27:400:27:41

See you next time we play Beat The Brain.

0:27:410:27:43

You saw how the team did, but what about you?

0:27:460:27:48

Did you get those posers I set at the start of the show?

0:27:480:27:51

Here's a reminder.

0:27:510:27:53

Are they left or right hands?

0:27:530:27:55

The answer is right, left, left.

0:27:580:28:01

And the second one?

0:28:020:28:04

The answer is five and three.

0:28:070:28:11

Don't forget, practice makes perfect,

0:28:110:28:13

so remember to sharpen your wits by watching next time on Beat The Brain.

0:28:130:28:18

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 student nurses see whether they have the right mental medicine to Beat the Brain and win the £3,000 jackpot.
