you got hit, you apologised.

0:11:590:12:02

Cos I was going to ask you what effect something like that

0:12:020:12:04

has on you - whether that, I don't know,

0:12:040:12:06

has a beneficial or a damaging effect on you.

0:12:060:12:09

I think so, cos I have the confidence to know

0:12:090:12:11

that I can make the Olympic final and I can do it.

0:12:110:12:14

I came really, really close, so I know I can do it

0:12:140:12:18

and it's just about making sure that I go there and do the job.

0:12:180:12:22

Well, I think you can safely guarantee that this country

at any rate will be behind you when you do that. So, good luck with it.

0:14:330:14:35

-I don't know.

-In which animated television series

0:14:360:14:39

did the Ant Hill Mob, Professor Pat Pending

0:14:390:14:42

and the Gruesome Twosome drive the Bulletproof Bomb,

0:14:420:14:45

the ConvertA-Car and the Creepy Coupe respectively?

0:14:450:14:49

It's an old cartoon. Inspector Gadget?

0:14:510:14:54

No, it was The Wacky Races.

0:14:540:14:57

-There we go.

-A bit too young.

-Well, I know what you mean, yeah.

0:14:580:15:02

The diarist in The Prostate Years and all the others was Adrian Mole.

0:15:020:15:06

There you go, you now have, Lutalo, a total of 13 points.

0:15:170:15:20

Thank you.

0:15:200:15:21

APPLAUSE

0:15:210:15:25

And now, Tom again, please.

0:15:290:15:32

Tom, those of us who stayed at the really sharp end of journalism

0:15:330:15:39

envy you swanning off - just wandering around, admiring this,

0:15:390:15:43

it must be lovely, an easy job, isn't it?

0:15:430:15:46

-It's very little other than skipping through flowers, isn't it?

-Exactly.

0:15:460:15:49

If you've seen Countryfile.

0:15:490:15:50

Mine is the slightly more journalistic bit of Countryfile.

0:15:500:15:54

I had a tweet the other day that referred to me

0:15:540:15:56

-as the Grim Heaper.

-That's quite good.

-Because when I come on,

0:15:560:15:59

it becomes a bit less fluffy than the rest of the show.

0:15:590:16:02

But I'm proud of the journalism on the show.

0:16:020:16:04

The audience is just ridiculous - I mean, it's way up there.

0:16:040:16:08

Yeah, it is. Famously last year, we overtook X Factor,

0:16:080:16:11

so that's not even a story any more.

0:16:110:16:13

So what is it? What do you think it is?

0:16:130:16:15

What's the mother lode that you've struck there?

0:16:150:16:18

I think people like looking at lovely pictures of the countryside,

0:16:180:16:21

people like looking at lives where people have,

0:16:210:16:24

if you like, real jobs.

0:16:240:16:25

Real engagement with wildlife or farming or things like that.

0:16:250:16:29

And also, as we live our lives in a more digital, virtual world,

0:16:290:16:32

I think people like to look at other lives, as well,

0:16:320:16:35

and know that there's still a big chunk of reality out there.

0:16:350:16:38

-We still care about the countryside, don't we?

-Uh-huh.

0:16:380:16:40

Good. Well, long may it last.

0:16:400:16:42

Now then, this contest, you have eight points.

0:19:080:19:11

And now Jo, again, please.

0:19:180:19:21

And, Jo, we know you, in part, because you're always

0:19:210:19:26

-so successful at the Edinburgh Fringe.

-Uh-huh.

0:19:260:19:29

Why do we know about the Edinburgh Fringe

0:19:290:19:31

and not about the sort of real thing,

0:19:310:19:33

as it were, the Festival?

0:19:330:19:34

Because people like laughing more.

0:19:340:19:36

People like laughing more than going,

0:19:360:19:38

"Oh, well, I learnt an awful lot at this production."

0:19:380:19:41

So, I don't know, I mean, the comedy just really took off.

0:19:410:19:44

People go there for a laugh,

0:19:440:19:45

and they sort of go from show to show.

0:19:450:19:47

It's not as expensive.

0:19:470:19:49

And you can sort of drink your way from show to show

0:19:490:19:52

and wander around and enjoy Edinburgh.

0:19:520:19:54

It's a perfect-sized city, as well, I think, for the Festival.

0:19:540:19:57

Yeah, you can walk everywhere, can't you?

0:19:570:19:59

You can walk everywhere and the countryside...

0:20:010:20:03

from right in the centre of town,

0:20:030:20:05

-which is where you want your country, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:20:050:20:07

When you are in the middle of a shop going,

0:20:070:20:09

"Oh, look, there's the country."

0:20:090:20:11

I'm not going to go there. I'll stay shopping.

0:20:110:20:14

That's what I prefer.

0:20:140:20:16

Right. Well, you'd better talk to Tom Heap about that.

0:20:160:20:19

He needs to put more shops in Countryfile.

0:20:190:20:22

He'd have a different view. Yeah.

0:20:220:20:24

All right, nine points is what you've got so far.

And, finally, Stuart, again, please.

0:23:010:23:03

You started writing your Logan McRae thrillers quite a time ago.

0:23:140:23:15

That wasn't where the question was going, actually, but...

LAUGHS: When you started, you didn't know it was going to take off.

0:23:190:23:23

-It was a one-off book, wasn't it?

-It was, it was.

0:23:230:23:25

If you write a one-off book,

and you finish the book, and you tie up all the loose ends,

0:23:270:23:30

and then your publisher says,

0:23:300:23:31

"Hey, they really liked that, we'd like a series of them,"

0:23:310:23:34

what do you do, because you've tied up all the...

0:23:340:23:36

You might have even killed the hero!

0:23:360:23:38

Luckily, I hadn't.

0:23:380:23:40

And I thought, "Well, it's this or be a project manager in IT.

0:23:400:23:44

Second book, here we go.

0:23:440:23:46

But does it make it more difficult?

0:23:480:23:50

Um, I think, as the series goes on,

0:23:500:23:53

a lot of people invest a lot in the characters.

0:23:530:23:55

And I think a lot of the readers

0:23:550:23:57

know more about the characters than I do,

0:23:570:23:59

-which is a little bit worrying.

-Are you being serious?

0:23:590:24:01

I mean, they actually invest them with their own imagination?

0:24:010:24:05

I get love letters for my main character.

0:24:050:24:08

-Do you?

-Oh, yes.

-Do you reply?

-I do.

0:24:080:24:11

-Not as him, cos that would be creepy.

-It would.

0:24:110:24:14

Yeah, very.

0:24:140:24:15

Right, Stuart, you have ten points on the board,

0:24:150:24:18

18 is the score to beat,

0:24:180:24:19
