These people are among the greatest quiz players in Britain.

0:00:040:00:09

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?

0:00:170:00:19

Welcome to the show where a team of five quiz challengers

0:00:220:00:26

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

0:00:260:00:30

They've won some of the country's toughest quiz shows. They are the Eggheads.

0:00:300:00:36

Taking on our champions today

0:00:360:00:38

are Snaefellas from the Isle of Man.

0:00:380:00:41

In choosing a name, this team has drawn inspiration from the geography of their island. Let's meet them.

0:00:410:00:47

Hello. I'm Gary. I'm 36 and I'm an accountant.

0:00:470:00:51

I'm Gary. I'm 39 and a business sales consultant.

0:00:510:00:54

I'm Kevin. I'm 38 and I'm an accountant.

0:00:540:00:57

I'm Peter. I'm 36 and I'm a telecomms manager.

0:00:570:01:01

I'm Mat. I'm 32 and I'm a fund administrator.

0:01:010:01:04

Welcome to you, Snaefellas. I mentioned your team name is from the geography of the Isle of Man.

0:01:040:01:11

The Eggheads know this, but everyone viewing may not. Snaefell is...

0:01:110:01:15

It's the island's only mountain.

0:01:150:01:17

-It's the only thing big enough to be classified as a mountain, at 2,036 feet.

-Not bad, then.

0:01:170:01:25

And "fellas". That's what you say on the Isle of Man, "Right, fella?"

0:01:250:01:30

Yeah. It's a colloquial saying that spans the generation gap.

0:01:300:01:34

You'll hear a 14-year-old say it as much as an 84-year-old.

0:01:340:01:37

Any of you lot ever quizzed on the Isle of Man?

0:01:370:01:40

Ever squirrelled your money away there, Judith and Pat? Not that you'd admit to!

0:01:400:01:47

-What's the quizzing scene like on the Isle of Man?

-A number of pubs run local quizzes.

0:01:470:01:52

-Do you ever take part in them?

-We do. Yes. More so recently.

0:01:520:01:57

-Since you knew you were on Eggheads.

-Exactly.

0:01:570:02:00

-How have you been doing in practice?

-Um...adequately.

0:02:000:02:05

You're not giving anything away, are you? And right not to!

0:02:050:02:10

Let's play the Eggheads, then. Every day, there is £1,000 up for grabs for our challengers.

0:02:100:02:15

If they fail to defeat the Eggheads the money rolls over.

0:02:150:02:19

So, Snaefellas, the Eggheads have won the last seven games.

0:02:190:02:22

£8,000 says you can't beat the Eggheads today.

0:02:220:02:26

Our first head-to-head battle is on Arts and Books.

0:02:260:02:30

Who wants to take this on?

0:02:300:02:32

-Not you, Gary B.

-It will be, I'm afraid.

0:02:320:02:35

I'm the Arts & Books sacrificial lamb.

0:02:350:02:39

-You've decided all this in advance.

-We have, I'm afraid.

0:02:390:02:43

Sorted out who plays them. Who would you play from the Eggheads, then?

0:02:430:02:48

I think...

0:02:480:02:50

-Take on Barry.

-I'll take on Judith, please.

0:02:500:02:53

OK. Gary B and Judith playing our opening round, Arts & Books.

0:02:530:02:58

To make sure there's no conferring, could I ask you both to go into the question room?

0:02:580:03:03

So, Gary, do you like reading? You like novels?

0:03:030:03:06

I do read quite a bit, but they're very specific genres.

0:03:060:03:10

So I don't really have a vast scope of knowledge on this subject.

0:03:100:03:14

-OK. Gary, would you like to go first or second?

-I'll go first, please.

0:03:140:03:20

First question, Gary. In 1987, the painting Sunflowers was surpassed

0:03:230:03:28

as the most expensive artwork bought at auction

0:03:280:03:31

by another Van Gogh work, featuring which flowers?

0:03:310:03:35

My initial thought was tulips.

0:03:380:03:42

Poppies or irises don't ring any bells.

0:03:420:03:46

With no degree of certainty, I think I'll plump for tulips.

0:03:460:03:51

Tulips surpassing sunflowers. Eggheads?

0:03:510:03:54

ALL: Irises.

0:03:540:03:56

It is irises.

0:03:560:03:58

Judith, have you hung it on the wall or put it away cos it's valuable?

0:03:580:04:02

-It was bought by that Australian, I think, Bond.

-Oh, Sunflowers.

0:04:020:04:07

-Alan Bond.

-Then he went broke and Sotheby's had to take it back.

0:04:070:04:12

Irises is the right answer.

0:04:120:04:14

Tulips is incorrect. Irises is what we were looking for.

0:04:140:04:18

So, Judith, your first question. Mums Know Best

0:04:180:04:22

is a best-selling cookery book based on whose television series?

0:04:220:04:25

I don't think that's Delia or Jamie.

0:04:290:04:31

I have never watched the Hairy Bikers. The title puts me off.

0:04:310:04:37

I think it must be the Hairy Bikers.

0:04:370:04:39

It is the Hairy Bikers. Well done, Judith.

0:04:390:04:42

Judith's in the lead

0:04:420:04:44

after the opening exchanges.

0:04:440:04:47

Gary, you need to get one here.

0:04:470:04:49

What is the title of the 2005 Ian McEwan novel

0:04:490:04:52

that features the neurosurgeon Henry Perowne and is set over the course of one day?

0:04:520:04:59

Again, nothing ringing bells. Um...

0:05:020:05:05

It's going to be a complete guess, I'm afraid.

0:05:070:05:11

I think I'm going to plump for...

0:05:110:05:13

Monday.

0:05:130:05:16

The Ian McEwan novel. Have you read it, Judith?

0:05:160:05:19

Yes, I have. It's Saturday.

0:05:190:05:21

It's called Saturday. Yes.

0:05:210:05:24

Gary looking up

0:05:240:05:26

to the stars for inspiration.

0:05:260:05:29

You've just got to grit your teeth and hope Judith gets it wrong.

0:05:290:05:34

To which ancient poet are the words "omnia vincit amor" or "love conquers all" credited?

0:05:340:05:39

I'm not at all good with ancient poets.

0:05:420:05:45

I think it might be Ovid.

0:05:480:05:50

And the answer is... You're happy, Barry.

0:05:500:05:54

-Yes. I am.

-It's Virgil.

-Ooh!

0:05:540:05:56

-Virgil.

-Oh, dear.

-When he wasn't busy in Thunderbirds.

0:05:560:06:00

Knocking up the old poems as well.

0:06:020:06:04

That's good news, then. You get another question, Gary.

0:06:040:06:07

Get this. Hope Judith gets another wrong and you're back in it.

0:06:070:06:12

Which Italian phrase meaning "at first"

0:06:120:06:15

is used in art to refer to a technique of applying paint in one session?

0:06:150:06:21

They all kind of have the primo, prima, primatura thing.

0:06:260:06:30

I think I'll probably go for...

0:06:330:06:36

Alla Prima.

0:06:360:06:38

Alla Prima is the right answer. Presumably means "all at once".

0:06:380:06:42

KEVIN: "At first."

0:06:420:06:44

Gary, this would be a revival.

0:06:440:06:46

Cos you got your first two incorrect, you do need Judith to get this one wrong as well.

0:06:460:06:53

Who wrote the books 1599, A Year In The Life Of William Shakespeare

0:06:530:06:57

and Contested Will, Who Wrote Shakespeare?

0:06:570:07:00

Oh, dear. I don't know that, either.

0:07:050:07:08

I know Peter Ackroyd wrote a biography of Shakespeare.

0:07:080:07:12

But it wasn't... I don't think it was called that.

0:07:120:07:15

I think I'm going to say Jonathan Bate, and pray.

0:07:180:07:22

Jonathan Bate and pray!

0:07:220:07:24

Cross your fingers.

0:07:240:07:26

-The answer is James Shapiro.

-Oh, dear.

0:07:260:07:30

After you got that second one wrong,

0:07:300:07:33

Gary, there wasn't much hope.

0:07:330:07:36

You were staring up at the lights, planning how to make your way back,

0:07:360:07:41

but you're back in it.

0:07:410:07:44

It goes to sudden death. It's all square.

0:07:440:07:47

I need to hear the answer from you.

0:07:470:07:49

Can't offer you any choices, if you do need to guess.

0:07:490:07:53

"If I were fierce and bald and short of breath

0:07:530:07:57

"I'd live with scarlet majors at the base"

0:07:570:08:00

is the opening couplet of an anti-war verse by which poet?

0:08:000:08:05

Complete guess. I'll plump for...

0:08:050:08:07

Shelley. Percy Shelley.

0:08:090:08:11

Percy Shelley...is incorrect.

0:08:110:08:14

-Any ideas, Judith?

-Is it Siegfried Sassoon?

-Yes, it is.

0:08:140:08:19

Siegfried Sassoon, anti-war poet.

0:08:190:08:21

Another chance for Judith. Two gone begging already.

0:08:230:08:27

Lorenzo Ghiberti's

0:08:270:08:30

Gates Of Paradise, one of the great masterpieces of Renaissance art,

0:08:300:08:34

are bronze doors for the baptistery of which city's cathedral?

0:08:340:08:38

That's Florence.

0:08:380:08:41

-Have you seen them?

-Yes. I have.

0:08:410:08:43

-They are wonderful.

-It's the right answer.

0:08:430:08:46

The gates close on that revival,

0:08:460:08:48

brief revival from Gary.

0:08:480:08:50

You won't be in the final round. Judith will be.

0:08:500:08:53

She managed to clinch the round.

0:08:530:08:56

Would you both please come back and join your teams?

0:08:560:08:59

What a dramatic round! Nearly came back, Gary, but not to be.

0:08:590:09:04

Snaefellas are missing one brain from the final round.

0:09:040:09:07

The Eggheads are all still there.

0:09:070:09:10

The next subject today is Science.

0:09:100:09:12

Who'd like to play this?

0:09:120:09:14

I think Kevin. Kevin's our science expert.

0:09:140:09:17

I wouldn't go that far, but I'll take that, Dermot.

0:09:170:09:21

Kevin is one of the potential choices. Who would you like to play?

0:09:210:09:25

Kevin, Pat, Barry or Chris?

0:09:250:09:27

Go for either Barry or Kevin. I'll take Barry on, please.

0:09:270:09:31

Kevin and Barry playing this one. It's science.

0:09:310:09:35

Could you both please go to the question room?

0:09:350:09:38

-Kevin, would you like to go first or second?

-I'll go first, please.

0:09:380:09:42

Good luck, Kevin. It's Science.

0:09:450:09:48

In a formula,

0:09:480:09:50

which function is equal to speed multiplied by time taken?

0:09:500:09:54

Speed multiplied by time taken?

0:09:570:09:59

I would possibly rule out distance.

0:09:590:10:04

So I'd imagine between momentum and acceleration.

0:10:040:10:08

-I'd take a guess at momentum.

-OK, momentum.

0:10:090:10:13

Speed multiplied by time taken is...

0:10:130:10:16

-Distance.

-It is distance?

-It is distance.

0:10:160:10:19

The more you think about it.

0:10:190:10:21

It's how fast you're travelling and how long it takes you.

0:10:210:10:26

Barry, hyperglycemia is a condition

0:10:260:10:29

in which there is an abnormally high concentration of what in the blood?

0:10:290:10:34

One branch of diabetics suffer from hyperglycemia.

0:10:360:10:40

They have too much sugar in the blood.

0:10:400:10:43

Sugar is correct.

0:10:430:10:46

Kevin trying it the Gary B way!

0:10:460:10:48

He got his second one wrong as well. I wouldn't advise that.

0:10:480:10:53

-No.

-If a bubble is a thin layer of liquid surrounding a gas,

0:10:530:10:58

what is the term for a thin layer of gas surrounding a liquid?

0:10:580:11:02

Purely cos it's the other way round, I'd go with antibubble.

0:11:090:11:12

-Is that your answer?

-Yeah. Antibubble.

0:11:120:11:15

It's correct! Well done. Just reversed it and got antibubble.

0:11:150:11:20

What name is given to creatures such as the shortfin shark

0:11:200:11:24

that produce eggs inside its body but give birth to live young?

0:11:240:11:29

Viviparous creatures give birth to live young.

0:11:330:11:37

"Ovo" means "egg".

0:11:370:11:39

A creature that lays eggs then gives birth to live young

0:11:390:11:42

must be ovoviparous.

0:11:420:11:44

-Ovoviviparous.

-Viviparous!

0:11:440:11:47

-We're all struggling with that one.

-There's an extra "viv".

0:11:470:11:51

Ovoviviparous is the right answer.

0:11:510:11:54

Well done.

0:11:540:11:56

You need to get this, Kevin.

0:11:580:12:00

Brothers John and William Hunter were figures in which field in the 18th century?

0:12:000:12:05

Um, Hunter. Hunter.

0:12:080:12:10

Nothing's jumping out here.

0:12:100:12:13

I've not heard of them with astrology or astronomy.

0:12:130:12:17

Not to say they're not, but I'll go with anatomy, please.

0:12:170:12:21

Anatomy? Well done. Yes.

0:12:210:12:23

You've got it. Hanging in there.

0:12:230:12:27

Need to cross your fingers, though, for this one for Barry.

0:12:270:12:31

"Tl" is the chemical symbol

0:12:310:12:33

for which poisonous metallic element with the atomic number 81?

0:12:330:12:38

I think thallium is "Th" and thulium is "Tu".

0:12:420:12:45

But I'm pretty certain that "Tl" is Tellurium.

0:12:450:12:48

It's not.

0:12:480:12:49

-Oh! Gosh!

-What is it, other Eggheads?

0:12:490:12:52

-KEVIN: Thallium.

-It's thallium.

0:12:520:12:54

Well, it IS happening. Gone into sudden death, then, Kevin.

0:12:560:13:00

Got to hear the answer from you.

0:13:000:13:03

Named after its inventor,

0:13:030:13:05

which type of hot air external combustion engine

0:13:050:13:09

was conceived by a Scottish clergyman in 1816?

0:13:090:13:14

I've no idea what it could possibly be.

0:13:140:13:17

Um...

0:13:170:13:19

A steam engine!

0:13:190:13:22

That's all I could think of.

0:13:220:13:24

It's incorrect. Do you know, Chris?

0:13:240:13:26

-The Stirling engine, isn't it?

-It is the Stirling engine.

0:13:260:13:31

Named after the Rev Stirling.

0:13:310:13:33

Barry, the term "quasar", meaning a massive remote celestial object

0:13:330:13:39

emitting large amounts of energy

0:13:390:13:41

appearing to be like a star when observed through a telescope,

0:13:410:13:45

is a contraction of which two words?

0:13:450:13:48

They are some of the most violent objects that have been found in the universe.

0:13:480:13:53

They are the contraction of the two words "quasi" and "stellar".

0:13:530:13:57

Quasi-stellar, quasar. It's the right answer.

0:13:570:14:00

Barry, you are into the final round. Only just.

0:14:000:14:04

Another great revival

0:14:040:14:07

but, again,

0:14:070:14:09

no place in the final round, Kevin.

0:14:090:14:12

Would you both please join your teams?

0:14:120:14:15

Snaefellas, unlucky. They've lost two brains from the final round.

0:14:150:14:19

I've got a feeling one of these Eggheads will go at some point.

0:14:190:14:23

Will it be this one?

0:14:230:14:25

Next round is Sport. Who wants to play this? Gary S, Peter or Mat?

0:14:250:14:30

That'll be me, Dermot.

0:14:300:14:32

OK, Mat. No hanging around there.

0:14:320:14:35

Who would you like to play? Barry and Judith have played.

0:14:350:14:38

You've got Kevin, Pat or Chris.

0:14:380:14:40

We'll take Chris, please.

0:14:400:14:42

OK. It's going to be Mat and Chris to play Sport.

0:14:420:14:46

-Looking forward to it, Chris?

-I have won the last two!

0:14:460:14:50

Let's have Mat and Chris into the question room.

0:14:500:14:53

Mat, what's your sporting knowledge? What interests do you have?

0:14:540:14:58

I'm a big Liverpool fan, Liverpool Football Club.

0:14:580:15:02

I play a bit of football myself and also a keen golfer.

0:15:020:15:06

Do you get to see Liverpool much? Do you have to fly or get the ferry?

0:15:060:15:11

Well, either of those, but I don't go as often as I'd like to.

0:15:110:15:15

-Right, would you like to go first or second?

-First please, Dermot.

0:15:150:15:21

Listen to this! Alan Hansen made 26 appearances for which international football team?

0:15:240:15:30

Alan Hansen made 26 appearances for which international football team?

0:15:320:15:37

I should easily get this one, then!

0:15:370:15:40

Being a big Liverpool fan! The answer's Scotland.

0:15:400:15:43

Course it is. Alan Hansen and Scotland.

0:15:430:15:45

Over which distance

0:15:450:15:47

did Dwain Chambers win World Indoor Championship gold in 2010?

0:15:470:15:53

We're talking indoors,

0:15:560:15:58

so it's not going to be one of the longer distances.

0:15:580:16:03

He's a sprinter.

0:16:030:16:06

So an indoor sprint must be 60 metres.

0:16:060:16:10

It's the right answer. Yes. 60 metres.

0:16:100:16:13

Second question, Mat.

0:16:130:16:15

Which rugby union team plays its home games at the Madejski Stadium?

0:16:150:16:20

OK. Rugby union's not really my cup of tea.

0:16:230:16:28

The Madejski Stadium, I think, is the home of Reading Football Club.

0:16:280:16:32

I'll go Harlequins.

0:16:340:16:38

As you say, Reading Football Club. It's not Harlequins.

0:16:380:16:41

It's London Irish. London Irish play their home games there.

0:16:410:16:47

Chris, the Marina Bay street circuit is the venue for which country's Formula 1 grand prix?

0:16:470:16:53

It's not Japan.

0:16:560:16:58

Malaysia's at Kuala Lumpur.

0:16:580:17:02

Singapore's a maritime kind of place.

0:17:020:17:05

We've got the word "bay" in there, so Singapore.

0:17:050:17:08

It's the right answer. Yes. Singapore.

0:17:080:17:12

Again, the Egghead takes the lead.

0:17:120:17:14

Again, one of the Snaefellas behind.

0:17:140:17:17

Mat, what is the weight limit

0:17:170:17:20

of the lowest division in the men's Olympic weightlifting competition?

0:17:200:17:24

Well, I'm not sure.

0:17:290:17:31

Well, I don't know the answer.

0:17:310:17:34

We'll go down the middle again. 46.

0:17:360:17:39

46 in Olympic men's weightlifting lowest division.

0:17:390:17:43

56. It's 56 kilos, which means, Chris, three in a row!

0:17:430:17:49

You'll be in the final round.

0:17:490:17:52

No place for you, Mat. Would you come back and join your teams?

0:17:520:17:56

I don't know about Snaefellas, but you've got nae fellas into the final round yet.

0:17:560:18:02

Three brains gone. All the Eggheads are still there.

0:18:020:18:05

The last chance now to knock an Egghead out.

0:18:050:18:08

This is Film & Television, our last head-to-head before the final round.

0:18:080:18:12

Who wants this? Gary S or Peter?

0:18:120:18:15

-I'll take that one, Dermot.

-OK, Gary.

0:18:150:18:18

Who would you like to play? Two remaining, Kevin and Pat.

0:18:180:18:22

-My hero, Kevin.

-Your HERO?

0:18:220:18:25

A strong category for them both, so Hobson's choice.

0:18:250:18:28

It's going to be Gary and Kevin, his hero, playing Film & Television.

0:18:280:18:32

Into the question room, please.

0:18:320:18:35

Let's play the round, Film & Television.

0:18:350:18:38

-You choose, Gary. Do you want to go first or second?

-I'll go first.

0:18:380:18:42

Good luck. Which Star Wars character

0:18:450:18:48

is frozen in carbonite towards the end of The Empire Strikes Back?

0:18:480:18:52

I hope I get this one right!

0:18:550:18:58

It's one of my favourite films. I think it would be Hans Solo.

0:18:580:19:02

Yes, it is. Hans Solo is the right answer.

0:19:020:19:06

Which actor is known for the catchphrase, "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into"?

0:19:060:19:11

Constantly said to Stan Laurel. Oliver Hardy.

0:19:130:19:16

Oliver Hardy is correct, Kevin.

0:19:160:19:20

Second question, Gary.

0:19:200:19:22

Which member of the Sex And The City cast

0:19:220:19:26

appeared as Rusty in the 1984 film Footloose?

0:19:260:19:30

Um, I don't know the answer,

0:19:340:19:37

but I think, no disrespect, but Kim Cattrall's the older one

0:19:370:19:42

of the four Sex And The City girls.

0:19:420:19:46

So I would plump for Kim Cattrall.

0:19:460:19:48

OK. Kim Cattrall.

0:19:480:19:51

It's not. Eggheads, anyone know? Kevin, do you know?

0:19:510:19:55

I've not seen Footloose.

0:19:550:19:57

Because it's teenagers, it could be Sarah Jessica Parker.

0:19:570:20:02

It is Sarah Jessica Parker. Your second question.

0:20:020:20:05

Which Top Gear regular

0:20:050:20:07

became the presenter of a children's programme called Blast Lab in 2009?

0:20:070:20:11

Well, I don't know this one.

0:20:140:20:16

It's not likely to be Jeremy Clarkson.

0:20:160:20:19

He does have blasts at people but not that sort of blast!

0:20:190:20:25

James May has done a number of things

0:20:250:20:28

to do with great inventions, great structures and all this.

0:20:280:20:33

Rich... Ah! I don't know.

0:20:330:20:35

I... Hm. No. 50-50.

0:20:350:20:38

I'll have to try James May.

0:20:380:20:40

Presenter of Blast Lab? It's the other one, Richard Hammond.

0:20:400:20:45

That's good news for you, Gary. Your third question.

0:20:470:20:51

What is the first name of DCI Barnaby's wife in the TV crime series Midsomer Murders?

0:20:510:20:57

Haven't got a clue, Dermot, I'm afraid.

0:20:590:21:03

-Don't watch 'em?

-No. I'm afraid not. Not my cup of tea!

0:21:030:21:08

I'm going to rule out Juliet.

0:21:080:21:10

I think it's been put in there because it's Juliet Bravo.

0:21:100:21:15

She was a TV detective.

0:21:150:21:20

It's between the other two, in my mind.

0:21:200:21:23

Joyce and June.

0:21:230:21:25

Joyce.

0:21:250:21:27

Joyce? Good choice!

0:21:270:21:29

-It's the right answer.

-Lucky!

0:21:290:21:31

Kevin.

0:21:310:21:33

Well, you now NEED to get this.

0:21:330:21:36

Which 1980s US TV detective was played by Lee Horsley?

0:21:360:21:41

I'm trying to visualise Lee Horsley.

0:21:450:21:47

I think he was a mustachioed macho man. It's not Father Dowling.

0:21:470:21:53

It's not Father Dowling. I've heard of Lee Horsley.

0:21:560:21:59

I've heard of Matt Houston. I don't remember much about that.

0:21:590:22:03

Benjamin Matlock's not meaning anything.

0:22:030:22:06

-I have to go for Matt Houston.

-Matt Houston.

0:22:060:22:11

Will Gary's hero bite the dust? No, he won't.

0:22:110:22:14

It's the right answer.

0:22:140:22:17

Matt Houston, OK.

0:22:170:22:19

You're doing very well against him, Gary. We go to sudden death again!

0:22:190:22:24

Om Puri and Linda Bassett were both nominated

0:22:240:22:27

for BAFTAs for their performances

0:22:270:22:29

as a fish and chip shop owner and his wife in which 1999 British film?

0:22:290:22:36

Well, I haven't...

0:22:360:22:38

I don't remember anything about it. I've not seen it.

0:22:380:22:42

I can't even guess, I'm afraid. I'll have to pass on that one.

0:22:460:22:51

Nothing there. Do you know, Kevin, out of interest?

0:22:510:22:54

-East Is East.

-East Is East is correct. Did it win it?

0:22:540:22:59

I can't remember. I wouldn't be surprised. It did quite well.

0:22:590:23:02

No, it didn't. It was beaten by, what else was around...?

0:23:020:23:06

-Probably American Beauty.

-I knew you'd know.

0:23:060:23:10

That wasn't your question. This is.

0:23:100:23:13

Which former member of the British royal family

0:23:130:23:16

appeared in a 1999 Red Nose Day special of the Vicar Of Dibley

0:23:160:23:20

and an episode of Friends entitled The One With Ross's Wedding?

0:23:200:23:25

I could be leaping in too soon,

0:23:250:23:29

but that sounds as though it really should be Sarah Ferguson.

0:23:290:23:33

Gary nodding along. He knows it is the right answer. Yes.

0:23:330:23:38

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York is correct, Kevin.

0:23:380:23:42

Bad luck, Gary.

0:23:420:23:44

You won't be in the final round. Would you please join your teams?

0:23:440:23:49

So this is what we've been playing towards, the final round which, as always, is General Knowledge.

0:23:490:23:55

Those who lost your heads-to-heads

0:23:550:23:58

won't be allowed to take part.

0:23:580:24:00

The two Garys, Kevin and Mat from Snaefellas,

0:24:000:24:03

would you leave the studio, please?

0:24:030:24:06

So Peter, you're playing to win the Snaefellas £8,000.

0:24:060:24:10

Chris, Barry, Pat, Judith and Kevin, you're playing for something which money can't buy,

0:24:100:24:14

the Eggheads' reputation.

0:24:140:24:17

I'll ask each team three questions in turn, all General Knowledge.

0:24:170:24:21

Peter, the question is,

0:24:210:24:23

is your one brain better than the Eggheads' five?

0:24:230:24:28

-Would you like to go first or second?

-I'll go first, please.

0:24:280:24:32

Let's get you off to a good start, unlike the guys that went before.

0:24:340:24:39

The American politician Harvey Milk served on the Board of Supervisors of which US city?

0:24:390:24:46

I know they made a film recently about Harvey Milk called Milk.

0:24:500:24:55

It's at this point I'm wishing I watched it!

0:24:550:25:00

I will go for New York.

0:25:000:25:03

New York for Harvey Milk on the Board of Supervisors there.

0:25:030:25:07

Peter talking about the film called Milk, wasn't it?

0:25:070:25:12

And it was set in San Francisco.

0:25:120:25:15

-Sean Penn?

-Yeah. Won the Best Actor Oscar.

0:25:150:25:18

I told you not to get that wrong, Peter!

0:25:200:25:23

It's a pattern you guys followed and mounted some remarkable comebacks in those head-to-heads.

0:25:230:25:29

Let's hope it works out for you, Peter.

0:25:290:25:32

See how the Eggheads do.

0:25:320:25:34

In which national daily newspaper

0:25:340:25:37

did the cartoon Flook run for over 30 years?

0:25:370:25:40

In which national daily newspaper

0:25:430:25:45

did the cartoon Flook run for over 30 years?

0:25:450:25:49

-That's the Daily Mail, Dermot.

-The Daily Mail for Flook?

0:25:490:25:54

F-L-O-O-K. It's the right answer, Eggheads. You are in the lead.

0:25:540:25:59

Chief Sitting Bull and Charlie Davenport are characters

0:25:590:26:03

in which 1946 musical?

0:26:030:26:05

Um, I don't know the answer to this.

0:26:090:26:13

Um... Just trying to work things out to help.

0:26:130:26:17

I know Porgy And Bess was Gershwin.

0:26:170:26:19

I think all of these could have been

0:26:190:26:22

around that same kind of era.

0:26:220:26:25

-I'm going to have a go for Annie Get Your Gun.

-Eggheads?

0:26:250:26:31

-ALL: Yes.

-It's the right answer. Well done.

0:26:310:26:35

That's a must-get question, and you did.

0:26:350:26:39

In which year was the kingdom of Italy officially proclaimed?

0:26:390:26:42

In which year was the kingdom of Italy officially proclaimed?

0:26:470:26:50

That's 1861.

0:26:520:26:54

1861 is the right answer, Eggheads.

0:26:540:26:58

You need to get this.

0:26:580:27:00

In which modern-day country is the area the Romans called Armorica?

0:27:000:27:06

In which modern-day country is the area the Romans called Armorica?

0:27:080:27:15

A-R-M-O-R-I-C-A. Armorica.

0:27:150:27:17

Again, unfortunately, I don't know the correct answer.

0:27:170:27:22

Just thinking of the word Armorica...

0:27:220:27:25

Usually you can get a bit of a hint.

0:27:250:27:29

I think I would have heard of it,

0:27:290:27:32

I would have more of an idea if it was France.

0:27:320:27:36

-So I'm going to go for Croatia.

-OK, Croatia.

0:27:360:27:40

For Armorica. It's not Croatia. Do you know, Eggheads?

0:27:400:27:44

Roughly equivalent to Brittany in France.

0:27:440:27:47

It is France. Which means, Eggheads, you've won.

0:27:470:27:51

Well, Peter it happened almost... It did happen throughout the game.

0:27:550:28:00

Those crucial first questions, getting them wrong. It's always so difficult then to win a round.

0:28:000:28:08

Some of the guys staged remarkable comebacks, got into sudden death,

0:28:080:28:12

and then got beaten by the Egghead.

0:28:120:28:14

It was just the curse of the first question.

0:28:140:28:18

Snaefellas, thank you very much for coming to play the Eggheads

0:28:180:28:21

and telling us about the Isle of Man, we shall be there as soon as we can!

0:28:210:28:27

The Eggheads have done what comes naturally. Their winning streak continues.

0:28:270:28:31

I'm afraid you won't be going home with the £8,000. The money rolls over to the next show.

0:28:310:28:36

Eggheads, congratulations. Who will beat you?

0:28:360:28:40

Join us to see if a new team of challengers has the brains to beat the Eggheads.

0:28:400:28:44

£9,000 says they don't. Until then, goodbye.
