These people are amongst the greatest quiz players in Britain.

0:00:040:00:08

Together they make up the Eggheads,

0:00:090:00:11

arguably the most formidable quiz team in the country.

0:00:110:00:15

The question is, can they be beaten?

0:00:160:00:19

Well, welcome to a special celebrity edition of Eggheads,

0:00:230:00:26

the show were a team of five quiz challengers

0:00:260:00:29

pit their wits against possibly the greatest quiz team in Britain.

0:00:290:00:32

They've won some of

0:00:320:00:34

the country's toughest quiz shows. They are, of course, the Eggheads.

0:00:340:00:38

And trying to tackle our awesome quiz titans today

0:00:380:00:42

are Don't Touch That Dial.

0:00:420:00:44

It will be a battle between a fivesome featuring someone familiar

0:00:440:00:47

to millions for their love of strutting around in leather - but enough about Barry -

0:00:470:00:52

going head to head against the cream of quizzing from the hallowed corridors of BBC Radio Two.

0:00:520:00:59

Let's meet them.

0:00:590:01:00

I'm Paul Gambaccini.

0:01:000:01:01

I present America's Greatest Hits, Saturday evenings on Radio Two.

0:01:010:01:05

Hi, I'm Suzi Quatro. I do Wake Up Little Suzi, BBC Radio Two, Thursday nights.

0:01:050:01:10

Hello, I'm Richard Allinson and I'm on Radio Two every weekend.

0:01:100:01:14

Hi, I'm Clare Teal. I present Big Band Special on Monday nights

0:01:140:01:17

just after 10pm on BBC Radio Two.

0:01:170:01:20

Alex Lester, The Best Time Of The Day Show, Monday to Friday,

0:01:200:01:24

3am to 6am. You know you want to!

0:01:240:01:26

Welcome to you, Don't Touch That Dial.

0:01:260:01:28

Now, why did you decide to appear on Eggheads?

0:01:280:01:32

You must know about the show. Are you mad?

0:01:320:01:35

-We're completely mad, absolutely.

-We are completely mad.

0:01:350:01:37

Suzi watches it every night, preparing her dinner.

0:01:370:01:40

I do and I can't cook, that's the funniest part.

0:01:400:01:42

So she knows what we're up against, but the thing is, we could

0:01:420:01:46

conceivably win some money for Children In Need.

0:01:460:01:48

Exactly, that is the main thing.

0:01:480:01:50

Suzi, you say you're an Eggheads fan. You kind of set your watch by it.

0:01:500:01:55

I watch it every night, I even watch the repeats.

0:01:550:01:57

I love quiz shows and I particularly like this one.

0:01:570:02:00

OK, well, it's serious quizzing stuff. These guys aren't bad at it.

0:02:000:02:03

Sometimes they have their moments.

0:02:030:02:05

Let me introduce you though, while we're on this subject, to the new

0:02:050:02:09

Egghead there, may not be familiar to you yet. This is Pat.

0:02:090:02:12

He's won Are You An Egghead earlier in the year,

0:02:120:02:16

and now is appearing for the first time on an Eggheads edition.

0:02:160:02:21

How does it feel, Pat?

0:02:210:02:22

My heart has just slowed down. It's tremendous.

0:02:220:02:25

Now, every day there's one £1,000 worth of cash up for grabs for our challengers' chosen charity.

0:02:250:02:32

However, if they fail to defeat the Eggheads, the prize money will roll over to the next show.

0:02:320:02:36

So, Don't Touch That Dial, as this is the first of our celebrity specials,

0:02:360:02:40

it's £1,000 that says you can't beat the Eggheads.

0:02:400:02:44

Let's set about the business of trying to do that.

0:02:440:02:47

The first head-to-head is on Arts and Books.

0:02:470:02:49

This is something I think might suit many of you.

0:02:490:02:52

You're all well-read types.

0:02:520:02:55

But any one of you can play. Who will it be?

0:02:550:02:58

Really? They're looking at me.

0:02:580:03:00

All right, what the heck.

0:03:000:03:02

Yeah, OK. Well, stay with us, Paul, stay with us.

0:03:020:03:06

You can choose any Egghead you like, that's the advantage of being first.

0:03:060:03:09

It's your choice who you play.

0:03:090:03:11

We're trying to win money for Children In Need, so I'm going to

0:03:110:03:14

prod the Eggheads in their untested spot and go for Pat.

0:03:140:03:18

Sounds fun!

0:03:180:03:20

Prod the Eggheads in their untested spot. That sums him up.

0:03:200:03:23

OK, let's have Pat and Paul into the question room, please.

0:03:230:03:28

OK, Paul, you get to choose, you're the challenger, do you want to go first or second?

0:03:300:03:34

Using the penalty shootout mentality

0:03:340:03:37

that you never know you're behind if you go first, I'll go first.

0:03:370:03:41

OK, first question then, Paul, and good luck with it.

0:03:420:03:45

What term is used to refer

0:03:450:03:46

to an item of additional material at the end of the book?

0:03:460:03:50

Well, it's not alliteration, because that's a figure of speech.

0:03:550:03:58

But I think addendum is a more general phrase,

0:03:580:04:02

so I'll say addendum.

0:04:020:04:03

Addendum, the extra material at the end of the book, yeah.

0:04:030:04:06

-Right answer, well done, Paul.

-Yes!

-Good start.

0:04:060:04:09

Back of the net. And Pat, your first question.

0:04:090:04:13

In a Limerick, the last line normally rhymes with which two others?

0:04:130:04:17

I think it's a five line little poem.

0:04:230:04:26

There was a young lady from Bengal

0:04:260:04:28

She went to a fancy dress ball

0:04:280:04:30

She went just for fun, dressed up as a bun

0:04:300:04:32

And a dog ate her up in the hall.

0:04:320:04:34

-Not a great Limerick, but...

-No, it certainly...

0:04:340:04:37

It certainly is an example of one,

0:04:370:04:39

but then presumably should give you the answer.

0:04:390:04:41

Bengal, ball and hall. It's first and second.

0:04:410:04:45

OK, well, in a Limerick,

0:04:450:04:47

the last line rhymes normally with the first and second.

0:04:470:04:50

It is correct, the lady from Bengal as Pat illustrated for us.

0:04:500:04:55

OK, Paul, second question. In 1861, Francis Turner Palgrave compiled

0:04:550:05:01

and published the first edition of which famous poetry anthology?

0:05:010:05:06

I guess you've just seen the gesture I make

0:05:110:05:14

when I don't know what I'm doing,

0:05:140:05:16

this thing on both sides of my mouth.

0:05:160:05:18

I don't think Other Men's Flowers is a famous regular anthology,

0:05:180:05:23

so I will just have to go for The Oxford Book Of English Verse.

0:05:230:05:27

First edition in 1861 was of The Golden Treasury.

0:05:270:05:31

The Golden Treasury.

0:05:310:05:35

Let's see how Pat does with this second one.

0:05:350:05:38

It's a very, very broad category, as they all are, and we hop from poetry to fiction and here's your question.

0:05:380:05:44

Which fictional school features a group of boys known as The Famous Five?

0:05:440:05:49

I don't know anything about St Dominic's,

0:05:530:05:56

but Dotheboys Hall, I think, is in Nicholas Nickleby by Dickens,

0:05:560:06:01

and I think The Famous Five were generally complemented

0:06:010:06:03

by the Fat Owl Of The Remove, Billy Bunter,

0:06:030:06:06

and I think they went to Greyfriars School,

0:06:060:06:09

-so The Famous Five are from Greyfriars.

-With Billy Bunter.

0:06:090:06:13

It is the right answer, yes, Pat. I could see Paul knew that, didn't he?

0:06:130:06:18

OK, Paul, you've got to get this, then.

0:06:180:06:20

What name is given to porcelain

0:06:200:06:23

and other pottery ware that's undergone the first firing, but not been glazed?

0:06:230:06:27

What name is given to porcelain and other pottery ware that's undergone

0:06:300:06:34

the first firing, but not been glazed?

0:06:340:06:37

I'll eliminate pastry just because that seems wrong.

0:06:370:06:41

Pastry after all is thick and you're talking about something that's thin.

0:06:410:06:46

In which case, if you're talking about thin,

0:06:460:06:49

you're probably going to go for pancake.

0:06:490:06:53

I'll go for pancake.

0:06:530:06:55

-OK, pancake, the first firing but not been glazed is the...

-Biscuit.

0:06:550:07:00

-Biscuit firing.

-Oh!

-Oh, Paul!

0:07:000:07:04

You could be misled there because biscuit means twice cooked

0:07:040:07:07

and you're referring to something that's only been baked once.

0:07:070:07:09

Oh, so from the French bis,

0:07:090:07:11

Biscuit. I never knew that. Yes, I never worked that out.

0:07:110:07:16

Yes, CJ's sticking up for you, saying, yes, logically,

0:07:160:07:18

you could easily go for pancake, but it is the biscuit firing in pottery.

0:07:180:07:23

The round's over. Bad luck, Paul, you won't be playing in the final round.

0:07:230:07:27

You're there, Pat. Would you both come back and join your teams?

0:07:270:07:30

Don't Touch That Dial have lost one brain from the final rounds,

0:07:300:07:33

Eggheads haven't lost any.

0:07:330:07:34

We've got three more rounds before the final round

0:07:340:07:38

and this one is music.

0:07:380:07:39

Oh-ho! It is music and it's come up and...

0:07:390:07:41

-Everybody wants...

-Anyone apart from Paul can play. Everyone wants to.

0:07:410:07:46

-I was raised in it all, you know, from my dad's band.

-Go on, then.

0:07:460:07:50

-But saying that, OK, now I've put my...

0:07:500:07:52

-Yeah, I guess I'll do it.

-All right, Suzi.

0:07:520:07:55

Who would you like to play from the Eggheads?

0:07:550:07:58

It can't be Pat, so any of the other four.

0:07:580:08:01

All right, Daphne, you're on.

0:08:010:08:04

-Woman to woman!

-Here we go.

-Fantastic.

0:08:040:08:08

OK, let's have Suzi and Daphne into the question room, please.

0:08:080:08:12

OK, then. Suzi, do you want to make Daphne begin or do you want the first set of questions?

0:08:120:08:17

-No, let's just get it over with. Go for it.

-OK.

0:08:170:08:21

Here we are. The singing star Lorna Luft

0:08:210:08:26

is the half-sister of which other singer and actress?

0:08:260:08:29

It's a no-brainer. Liza Minnelli.

0:08:330:08:35

I'm a big fan of Liza Minnelli, actually.

0:08:350:08:38

OK. And it is Liza Minnelli. No messing around there.

0:08:380:08:41

One to you then, Suzi.

0:08:410:08:43

Daphne, your first question. In 1967 who had a UK number one single with

0:08:430:08:49

Release Me, which went on to be the biggest selling single of that year?

0:08:490:08:52

Well, there's not much I remember from the '60s,

0:08:560:08:59

because I had five babies during that time,

0:08:590:09:02

but I do think it's Engelbert Humperdinck.

0:09:020:09:04

-You think it's Engelbert, "Please release me, let me go," yeah?

-Yeah.

0:09:040:09:08

That's absolutely right. Good start for you, Daphne.

0:09:080:09:10

When you said that, that's the famous phrase -

0:09:100:09:12

I you remember the '60s, you weren't probably there.

0:09:120:09:15

I thought, "Not Daphne and all that psychedelic stuff!"

0:09:150:09:18

-It was the children?

-Yeah, yeah.

-Keeping your hands full.

0:09:180:09:21

OK, Suzi, second question.

0:09:210:09:23

Before The Parade Passes By is a song written for which musical of stage and film?

0:09:230:09:30

Well, I know West Side Story.

0:09:330:09:35

I know every single song in that, even the dialogue.

0:09:350:09:39

I'm pretty familiar with Cabaret.

0:09:390:09:41

I don't think it's either of those. I'm going to say Hello Dolly.

0:09:410:09:44

Hello Dolly, what do we think, Don't Touch That Dial?

0:09:440:09:46

-We think it's Hello Dolly.

-We think it's Hello Dolly.

0:09:460:09:50

It is the right answer, well done, Suzi.

0:09:500:09:52

Hooray!

0:09:520:09:54

Daphne, second question. Which member of The Beatles released

0:09:540:09:57

the solo albums All Things Must Pass, Somewhere In England and Cloud Nine?

0:09:570:10:02

I don't know.

0:10:060:10:08

-George Harrison?

-Is that your answer?

0:10:130:10:15

Yes, sorry.

0:10:150:10:18

-Don't be sorry.

-Yeah, they know it is the right answer.

0:10:180:10:21

OK, well, it's all square after Daphne landed that informed guess.

0:10:230:10:28

Suzi, third question, could win the round for you if you get it.

0:10:280:10:32

How should a musical piece with the instruction "con brio" be played?

0:10:320:10:37

Can you spell that for me?

0:10:400:10:42

Yeah, that's two words, C-O-N, con, and brio, B-R-I-O.

0:10:420:10:47

I think that's with vigour.

0:10:480:10:50

It's amazing when you go into the zone to answer the questions,

0:10:500:10:53

suddenly all the chat stops and it's just... The correct answer!

0:10:530:10:56

Well done, with vigour.

0:10:560:10:58

Can I just say, Dermot, I play classical piano.

0:10:580:11:01

I didn't get that I can feel my dad up there now,

0:11:010:11:05

all that money he wasted!

0:11:050:11:06

Yeah.

0:11:060:11:08

That grand piano in the sky would come crashing down on your head.

0:11:080:11:11

OK, Daphne, it means you've got to get this.

0:11:110:11:14

Let's see, who became the first person to hold the title of Master Of The King's Music in 1626?

0:11:140:11:20

That's more like it! Nicholas Lanier.

0:11:250:11:28

Master Of The King's Music in 1626 was Nicholas Lanier, it is correct.

0:11:310:11:36

So, Suzi, going really, really well there.

0:11:360:11:40

You've taken us to the sudden death phase of the round, which means

0:11:400:11:43

I can't offer you any more choices, so can you tell me this?

0:11:430:11:48

Raymond Burns is the real name of which singer and musician, a founder of the punk group The Damned?

0:11:480:11:54

Punk just passed me by. I wasn't a fan of it at all.

0:11:540:11:58

-The Damned.

-Yeah. I can't think of even somebody's name.

0:11:580:12:00

The Damned.

0:12:000:12:03

No, I can't even... I wasn't a fan.

0:12:030:12:05

I've no idea. I'll save you the time.

0:12:050:12:07

I don't even know any of their hits.

0:12:070:12:09

-Raymond Burns is Captain Sensible from The Damned.

-Oh, right. Oh, him.

0:12:090:12:13

-Captain Sensible.

-He's a weird guy, yeah, OK.

0:12:130:12:16

-Didn't he have hits on his own?

-Happy Talk.

0:12:160:12:18

-That was the one, yeah. From the musical. Back to...

-Yeah.

0:12:180:12:22

Back to Daphne. OK.

0:12:220:12:24

We are going back to you, Daphne, for another question and if you get this, you do go through.

0:12:240:12:28

The Polovetsian Dances, often performed as a stand-alone concert piece,

0:12:280:12:33

come from which opera by Alexander Borodin?

0:12:330:12:36

Prince Igor?

0:12:370:12:40

Is correct, yes. The Polovetsian Dances are in Prince Igor,

0:12:420:12:46

which means, Suzi, you're not going to be in the final round.

0:12:460:12:50

Bad luck. Daphne, you'll be there.

0:12:500:12:52

Would you both please come back and join your teams?

0:12:520:12:55

Don't Touch That Dial, you've lost those two brains from the final round.

0:12:550:12:59

We've got two more head-to-heads, so you can even it up in the final round,

0:12:590:13:03

and our next subject today is Politics

0:13:030:13:05

and Richard, Clare or Alex to play. Politics.

0:13:050:13:08

-Blimey.

-Blimey, says Alex!

0:13:080:13:09

What you looking at me for?

0:13:090:13:12

-Richard.

-How political is the Politics round?

-Pretty political.

0:13:120:13:16

-It's about politics.

-Yeah, but it's not office politics.

-You can do it, Richard.

0:13:160:13:20

-It's not office politics.

-Go on, Richard.

0:13:200:13:22

Yes, we believe in you.

0:13:220:13:24

-OK, pick one.

-Pick an Egghead.

0:13:240:13:26

So, Daphne and Pat have played.

0:13:260:13:28

-You go CJ. Go for CJ.

-Yeah.

0:13:280:13:30

-We think CJ.

-OK, so it's going to be Richard playing CJ,

0:13:300:13:34

the subject is Politics and the place to do it is the question room, please, guys.

0:13:340:13:39

Richard, would you like to go first or second?

0:13:390:13:42

I'll probably go against what Paul said earlier and go second.

0:13:420:13:47

Switching it around, see if CJ will slip up for you.

0:13:490:13:52

CJ, the Common Market was an informal term for which entity

0:13:520:13:56

that has since undergone numerous official name changes?

0:13:560:13:58

I hope this round goes on a while, because I do like this subject,

0:14:020:14:06

and in view of our illustrious opponent,

0:14:060:14:08

I just hope this will be a round with nowt taken out.

0:14:080:14:11

He loses points for that!

0:14:110:14:13

Richard is groaning because he's never heard that before.

0:14:130:14:17

I don't even remember the question, but I'm just going to say the EU.

0:14:170:14:20

Yeah, it is the EU.

0:14:200:14:22

That is correct. OK, Richard, and your question is this.

0:14:220:14:27

Which word came to prominence in the UK in 2009

0:14:270:14:30

to refer to MPs' habits of switching their second home

0:14:300:14:34

between different houses,

0:14:340:14:36

allowing them to maximise their expense allowances?

0:14:360:14:39

There were many, I seem to remember,

0:14:410:14:43

most of them unbroadcastable at this time of the day.

0:14:430:14:45

I'm not sure it was swallowing.

0:14:450:14:48

Blackballing refers to something entirely different.

0:14:480:14:50

I've got to go with flipping, I think.

0:14:500:14:53

-Yeah, flipping homes, that is the right answer.

-Phew!

0:14:530:14:56

Good start, Richard.

0:14:560:14:58

CJ, second question.

0:14:580:15:00

In 1993, Kim Campbell became the first female Prime Minister

0:15:000:15:05

of which country?

0:15:050:15:06

She was an absolute disaster.

0:15:090:15:11

I think she only lasted six months. Canada.

0:15:110:15:13

Canada is correct. Obviously, yes, that's North American,

0:15:130:15:16

that'll do for you, will it? OK, that is the right answer.

0:15:160:15:19

Well, Richard, and staying with North America

0:15:190:15:22

for you, the North American Free Trade Agreement,

0:15:220:15:25

commonly shortened to NAFTA, was an agreement signed in 1992

0:15:250:15:29

between the United States, Canada and which other country?

0:15:290:15:34

I can't think it's Russia.

0:15:370:15:39

What's Paul doing?

0:15:400:15:43

I'm not sure it's...

0:15:430:15:46

Is it Mexico or Cuba?

0:15:460:15:48

I think I'm going with Cuba.

0:15:480:15:51

Yeah, Cuba.

0:15:510:15:53

Do you want to know what Paul's doing?

0:15:530:15:55

-Yeah, go on, then.

-He's lying on the desk.

0:15:550:15:59

Given that the United States have had a long standing trade embargo

0:16:010:16:06

with Cuba, which still hasn't been lifted.

0:16:060:16:08

Curses! Can I... Can I go for Option B then, please?

0:16:080:16:13

-Well, B would be worse.

-Would it?

-No, it's... It's Mexico.

0:16:130:16:17

It's because they're all joined up by borders, it was quite simple.

0:16:170:16:20

Yeah. I was thinking it was too simple, so I was...

0:16:200:16:23

-Bother! Anyway.

-Yes, botheration!

0:16:230:16:26

Mexico make up the North American Free Trade Agreement

0:16:260:16:30

with the United States and Canada. So it means, CJ, you win the round

0:16:300:16:33

if you give me the correct answer here.

0:16:330:16:36

Prior to becoming MP for Great Grimsby in 1977,

0:16:360:16:40

which MP had career stints as a university lecturer,

0:16:400:16:44

a writer of a book about New Zealand

0:16:440:16:46

and the presenter of Yorkshire Television's Calendar program?

0:16:460:16:50

I'm not absolutely sure.

0:16:550:16:58

The Calendar one is more of a link to me.

0:16:580:17:01

Unfortunately I can't remember who the Grimsby MP is.

0:17:010:17:04

Not Vince Cable, I don't think. Oh, hold on.

0:17:040:17:07

Austin Mitchell changed his name by deed poll to Haddock,

0:17:070:17:10

didn't he, because of the fishing industry in Grimsby?

0:17:100:17:13

I think it was Grimsby.

0:17:130:17:15

-Yes, he changed his name, didn't he? Austin Mitchell.

-Austin Mitchell.

0:17:180:17:20

Well, that's an interesting fact.

0:17:200:17:22

He's Austin Haddock Mitchell?

0:17:220:17:24

Either Haddock or Mackerel. I think it was Haddock.

0:17:240:17:27

He changed his name by deed poll just to support,

0:17:270:17:30

make a stand for the fishing industry.

0:17:300:17:32

You got Austin Haddock Mitchell. It is the right answer.

0:17:320:17:35

Well done, CJ. You're through to the final round.

0:17:350:17:38

Richard, you won't be there.

0:17:380:17:39

Would you both please come back and join your teams?

0:17:390:17:42

You've lost three brains from the final round.

0:17:440:17:46

The Eggheads haven't lost any so our last chance to knock one of them out

0:17:460:17:51

and that chance has to be taken by Clare or Alex

0:17:510:17:53

on the subject of Film and Television.

0:17:530:17:55

Oh, now.

0:17:550:17:58

Who do you think out of the two of us would be better in the end?

0:17:580:18:02

I think Alex should stay here. Shall I do this one?

0:18:020:18:05

-Are you sure?

-I'll go Film and Television.

0:18:050:18:07

-Clare has admitted to watching television. OK.

-You do gardening.

0:18:070:18:10

-You could be on your own.

-So, you're going to play, Clare.

0:18:100:18:14

-Yes.

-Who would you like to play from the Eggheads?

0:18:140:18:17

There's two of them left and they are Chris and Barry.

0:18:170:18:21

Well... Up to you.

0:18:210:18:22

-I'll go Chris.

-Chris, OK. Yes, good choice.

0:18:220:18:24

He doesn't have a TV!

0:18:240:18:28

-He does, but it works by steam.

-Black and white, 405 lines, yeah.

0:18:280:18:33

OK, then let's have Clare and Chris into the question room, please.

0:18:330:18:37

Clare, do you want to go first or second?

0:18:370:18:41

I think I'll go first.

0:18:410:18:42

Well, here we go. Which actress was controversially passed over

0:18:450:18:48

for the role of Eliza Doolittle in the 1964 film My Fair Lady,

0:18:480:18:52

despite having played the role to great acclaim on the stage?

0:18:520:18:56

Well, I'm a big fan of this lady.

0:19:000:19:02

It's definitely Julie Andrews.

0:19:020:19:03

And, yes, it's Julie Andrews.

0:19:030:19:05

It is the right answer, Clare.

0:19:050:19:07

Good start. And, Chris.

0:19:070:19:09

Yes!

0:19:090:19:11

What was the occupation of Smashie and Nicey, characters played on TV

0:19:110:19:15

by Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield?

0:19:150:19:17

Well, it was all for charity, mate. Yeah, they were DJs.

0:19:200:19:22

DJs. And we've got to ask the DJs here, Smashie and Nicey,

0:19:220:19:26

-it's good to laugh at yourselves, every now and again.

-Yeah.

-Me? Us?

0:19:260:19:31

We hate them so much, yeah.

0:19:310:19:34

No Smashies and all Niceys there.

0:19:340:19:36

DJs is the right answer. Well done, Chris.

0:19:360:19:39

And back to you then, Clare.

0:19:390:19:41

Here you go.

0:19:410:19:43

Who played housewife Mildred Roper

0:19:430:19:45

in the TV series Man About The House and George And Mildred?

0:19:450:19:49

Well, I seem to remember being sent to bed when this was on.

0:19:530:19:57

I think Sally Thomsett would be too young then,

0:20:000:20:03

and Tessa Wyatt, so I think it's Yootha Joyce.

0:20:030:20:05

-It's Yootha Joyce is Mildred in them both.

-Hooray!

-Well, done.

0:20:050:20:09

And your second question, Chris.

0:20:090:20:12

"You're not a star until they can spell your name in Karachi"

0:20:120:20:16

is a quote attributed to which actor?

0:20:160:20:18

Well, that's a tough one, isn't it?

0:20:220:20:24

Yeah.

0:20:240:20:25

"You're not a star until they can spell your name in Karachi."

0:20:270:20:30

It sounds laid back like Robert Mitchum.

0:20:330:20:35

I don't think it was Bogart and it sure as hell wasn't John Wayne,

0:20:350:20:39

so, yeah, I'll say Robert Mitchum.

0:20:390:20:41

Robert Mitchum,

0:20:410:20:42

"You're not a star until they can spell your name in Karachi"

0:20:420:20:45

was a quote attributed, an observation attributed to Humph.

0:20:450:20:49

Humphrey Bogart. Well, now, at last, a chance...

0:20:490:20:54

A chance, so compose yourself, Clare, a chance to get through

0:20:540:20:57

to the final round and Alex is very tense as well.

0:20:570:21:00

-He wants someone to hold his hand.

-I'll be really lonely later!

-OK.

0:21:000:21:04

This guarantees you a place in the final round if you get it.

0:21:040:21:08

What are the policeman who terminate Runners

0:21:080:21:12

in the 1976 sci-fi film Logan's Run called?

0:21:120:21:17

Have you seen it, Clare? Can you remember it?

0:21:210:21:23

-I haven't seen it.

-Right.

0:21:230:21:25

-I haven't heard of it.

-Oh!

0:21:250:21:27

I... My gut reaction was Sandmen, so I think...

0:21:270:21:32

Yeah, I'll say Sandmen. I don't have a reason, but I think it's right.

0:21:320:21:35

Well, you say you haven't seen it, never heard of it, so it is a guess,

0:21:350:21:39

but, looking at the possibilities there, going for Sandmen

0:21:390:21:42

and I can tell you in this studio,

0:21:420:21:44

Clare, you're being willed over the line there by your teammates

0:21:440:21:48

-and they know you're in the final round!

-Yay!

-It's correct!

0:21:480:21:51

Sandmen. You've made it.

0:21:520:21:54

Great news for Don't Touch That Dial.

0:21:540:21:56

It means, Chris, you won't be there.

0:21:560:21:58

Would you both please come back and join your teams?

0:21:580:22:01

This is what we've been playing towards.

0:22:010:22:03

It's time for the final round, which is General Knowledge.

0:22:030:22:06

I'm afraid those of you who lost your head to heads

0:22:060:22:09

won't be allowed to take part.

0:22:090:22:11

So, Paul, Suzi and Richard from Don't Touch That Dial

0:22:110:22:14

and Chris from the Eggheads, would you leave the studio now, please?

0:22:140:22:18

So, Clare and Alex, you're playing to win Don't Touch That Dial £1,000,

0:22:200:22:24

or to win your chosen charity £1,000.

0:22:240:22:26

CJ, Daphne, Barry and Pat, you're playing for something

0:22:260:22:30

which money can't buy - the Eggheads' reputation.

0:22:300:22:33

I'll ask each team three questions in turn.

0:22:330:22:35

The questions are all general knowledge

0:22:350:22:37

and you are allowed to confer.

0:22:370:22:39

Don't Touch That Dial, the question is,

0:22:390:22:41

are your two brains better than the Eggheads' four?

0:22:410:22:44

And, Clare and Alex, would you like to go first or second?

0:22:440:22:47

It exudes confidence. We've decided

0:22:470:22:49

we're just going to go and go for it, that's what we're going to do.

0:22:490:22:53

You've decided to go first. Best of luck. Let's see if you can do it.

0:22:550:22:58

Come on, Alex. Yes!

0:22:580:23:00

First question for you.

0:23:000:23:02

The TV series Ashes To Ashes and Life On Mars

0:23:020:23:05

take their names from Top Ten hit singles by which singer?

0:23:050:23:09

-Well, Clare's favourite artist.

-One of them.

0:23:130:23:16

One of them, and I'm glad I know this as well,

0:23:160:23:20

independently of Clare I hasten to point out, David Bowie.

0:23:200:23:23

OK, David Bowie. Yeah.

0:23:230:23:25

David Bowie it is, so one to you, Don't Touch That Dial.

0:23:250:23:28

Well done, Clare and Alex there. OK, Eggheads,

0:23:280:23:31

in the military, what name was sometimes given

0:23:310:23:34

to a soldier assigned to an officer as a personal servant?

0:23:340:23:37

Well, he may have been expected to be a Superman,

0:23:410:23:45

and I don't know if he cleared out the spiders and been a Spiderman,

0:23:450:23:48

but he was CERTAINLY a batman.

0:23:480:23:50

..is the right answer. Yes, Eggheads, one to you.

0:23:500:23:53

OK, Clare and Alex, second question.

0:23:530:23:55

Where was the infamous World War I spy Mata Hari born?

0:23:550:24:00

Now, I...

0:24:040:24:06

I don't think...

0:24:060:24:08

-Nicaragua doesn't ring a bell.

-No. The Netherlands ring a bell...

0:24:080:24:12

The Netherlands rings a bell with me. I don't think it was Nigeria.

0:24:120:24:16

I think we both...

0:24:160:24:17

-Our gut reaction was the Netherlands, for both of us.

-OK.

0:24:170:24:20

So we're either both stupid or both brilliant.

0:24:200:24:25

-Well, let's go for brilliant, shall we?

-Yeah.

0:24:250:24:27

We'll go for the Netherlands.

0:24:270:24:29

OK, well, I can tell you, you are both brilliant.

0:24:290:24:33

-It's the right answer.

-Yay!

0:24:330:24:35

The point is on the board for Don't Touch That Dial.

0:24:350:24:38

They're two one up

0:24:380:24:39

and let's see how you do with your second question, Eggheads.

0:24:390:24:42

Italian industrialists the Agnelli family have been involved since 1923

0:24:420:24:46

with which Italian football club?

0:24:460:24:48

-They're the Fiat people in Turin.

-Fiat are based in Turin.

0:24:510:24:54

-That's where the Agnellis are.

-Juventus is almost the house team.

0:24:540:24:58

Yeah. I think it's Juventus.

0:24:580:25:00

Well, the Agnellis were owners of Fiat,

0:25:000:25:04

which is based in Turin,

0:25:040:25:05

and the football team based in Turin is Juventus,

0:25:050:25:08

-so the answer must be Juventus.

-OK, Juventus.

0:25:080:25:10

It is the right answer.

0:25:100:25:12

Well, done, Eggheads. Two to you and back to Alex and Clare.

0:25:120:25:15

Well, if you get this

0:25:150:25:16

you just might beat them.

0:25:160:25:19

It could be the question that decides it.

0:25:190:25:21

Let's see how you do. Inaugurated by US Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970,

0:25:210:25:27

what is celebrated each year on 22 April?

0:25:270:25:31

How far do you think women's rights were along in America in 1970?

0:25:370:25:41

That was my... That's my...

0:25:410:25:43

-You think they weren't ready for it then?

-I think that...

0:25:430:25:46

That was the one that I thought could be it, but in truth I don't know.

0:25:460:25:50

-I don't know when Martin Luther King's birthday is.

-But I'd think...

0:25:500:25:53

Bearing in mind it may have taken a few years after his assassination

0:25:530:25:57

to get to the point people thought he ought to have a special day.

0:25:570:26:00

Was he assassinated in 1960? Would it have been a tenth anniversary thing?

0:26:000:26:05

Something like that, yeah.

0:26:050:26:06

I just wonder because Earth Day, I don't even know what...

0:26:060:26:10

That sounds like a more sort of late 70s eco thing going on.

0:26:100:26:13

I was going to say, "Is International Women's Day only in Britain?",

0:26:130:26:16

-but the clue's in the title!

-It's a bit of a clue, you're right there.

0:26:160:26:20

-Shall we go for Martin Luther King?

-I... Yeah, do that. Do that thing.

0:26:200:26:25

Well, we've mulled it over...

0:26:250:26:27

..and so we're going to have a wild stab

0:26:290:26:32

at Martin Luther King's birthday.

0:26:320:26:34

OK, Martin Luther King's birthday.

0:26:340:26:36

Inaugurated by Gaylord Nelson in 1970, celebrated on 22 April...

0:26:360:26:42

It's the last one on your list, it's Earth Day.

0:26:420:26:45

-Aw!

-Earth Day. You'd lost your North American contingent there,

0:26:450:26:49

hadn't you, in those head to heads?

0:26:490:26:51

I'm sure either Suzi or Paul or both would have known that.

0:26:510:26:55

So, it means the Eggheads have the opportunity to wrap it up,

0:26:550:26:59

but it goes on if they don't.

0:26:590:27:02

Eggheads, a statue of the Sylvester Stallone film character Rocky

0:27:020:27:06

stands outside the Museum Of Art in which American city?

0:27:060:27:09

A statue of the Sylvester Stallone film character Rocky

0:27:120:27:15

stands outside the Museum Of Art in which American city?

0:27:150:27:20

-It's got to be that, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:27:200:27:22

Well, Rocky was set in Philadelphia,

0:27:220:27:24

so it wouldn't make sense for a statue of Rocky

0:27:240:27:26

to be based in any other city, so our answer is Philadelphia.

0:27:260:27:30

Is that where he runs up the steps and...

0:27:300:27:32

Is that outside the Museum of Art?

0:27:320:27:34

We're all going to do that one year.

0:27:340:27:36

Well, you can do it now, it is the right answer, Eggheads. You've won!

0:27:360:27:40

Yeah, a lot of North American questions there

0:27:440:27:47

and, as I said there...

0:27:470:27:48

-Where were they?

-Unfortunately, they lost those head to heads.

0:27:480:27:52

-The tactics failed early on, didn't they?

-The Tic Tacs definitely failed!

0:27:520:27:56

Thank you for playing.

0:27:560:27:57

We appreciate you taking the time out of your schedules

0:27:570:28:00

to have a laugh, try and beat the Eggheads

0:28:000:28:02

and raise that money for charity.

0:28:020:28:04

Not just Alex and Clare, thank you very much for that,

0:28:040:28:07

but to Richard, Suzi and Paul. We really do appreciate you joining us

0:28:070:28:10

here in the studio, don't we, Eggheads?

0:28:100:28:12

-Yes, we do.

-Absolutely.

0:28:120:28:15

But the Eggheads have done what comes naturally to them.

0:28:150:28:17

They still reign supreme over quiz land.

0:28:170:28:20

I'm afraid you haven't won the £1,000,

0:28:200:28:22

which means, of course, the money rolls over to our next show.

0:28:220:28:25

Eggheads, congratulations.

0:28:250:28:26

Who will beat you? Join us next time to see if a team of sporting legends

0:28:260:28:31

captained by John Inverdale have the brains to defeat the Eggheads.
