These people are amongst the greatest quiz players in Britain.

0:00:040:00:08

Together, they make up the Eggheads,

0:00:080:00:10

arguably the most formidable quiz team in the country.

0:00:100:00:14

The question is, can they be beaten?

0:00:150:00:18

Welcome to Eggheads,

0:00:230:00:25

the show where a team of five quiz challengers

0:00:250:00:27

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

0:00:270:00:31

And you might recognise them,

0:00:310:00:32

as they have won some of the country's toughest quiz shows. They are the Eggheads.

0:00:320:00:37

Hoping to beat them today

0:00:370:00:38

are the Ards Ladies from County Down.

0:00:380:00:41

This team are all members of a new rugby squad

0:00:410:00:44

brought together by team captain Ross. Let's meet them.

0:00:440:00:46

Hi. I'm Ross, I'm 30 and I'm an architect.

0:00:460:00:49

Hi. I'm Pauline. I'm 28 and I work in events management.

0:00:490:00:53

I'm Donna, I'm 26 and I work in customer service.

0:00:530:00:56

Hello, I'm Debbie, I'm 25 and I'm a night shift hospitality host.

0:00:560:01:00

Hi. I'm Rebecca, I'm 22 and I'm a receptionist.

0:01:000:01:03

Welcome to you, Ards Ladies. I am loving this team name.

0:01:030:01:06

No puns, no plays on words as some other teams come up with.

0:01:060:01:10

It's direct, it's to the point, but it is inaccurate, Ross.

0:01:100:01:13

-Yeah, just a bit!

-You being the case in point.

0:01:150:01:18

-You're obviously not playing in the rugby team. You're the coach?

-Yes, I am.

0:01:180:01:23

-So, are you a rugby player yourself?

-I am, actually.

0:01:230:01:26

I have been playing now for coming on 20 years.

0:01:260:01:29

Why did you get into women's rugby?

0:01:290:01:31

I was asked to help out a friend who was playing for a university team,

0:01:310:01:34

and I just kept falling from one position into another.

0:01:340:01:38

It is certainly a unique challenge, guiding women to do what you say.

0:01:380:01:43

So why have you decided take on the Eggheads today? Are you mad?

0:01:430:01:47

It is always nice to show that rugby players can do

0:01:470:01:50

something off the field as well as on it.

0:01:500:01:53

OK, let's play the game. Let's see if you can take the Eggheads' money.

0:01:530:01:56

Every day there is £1,000 worth of cash up for grabs for our challengers.

0:01:560:02:00

But if they fail to defeat the Eggheads, the prize money rolls over to the next show.

0:02:000:02:05

So, Ards Ladies, the Eggheads have won their last 11 games.

0:02:050:02:07

That means £12,000 says you can't beat the Eggheads.

0:02:070:02:11

That would buy a few tackle bags and stuff, wouldn't it?

0:02:110:02:15

OK, let's play it, then, and our first head-to-head battle.

0:02:150:02:18

I'm sure it will suit you all, but only one of you can play. Sport.

0:02:180:02:21

Who wants to play this? Sport.

0:02:210:02:23

-Who did we say was going to play sport?

-It was me.

-It was Pauline?

0:02:230:02:28

Go for Pauline? Pauline.

0:02:280:02:30

OK, Pauline, you get to choose any Egghead you like at this stage, the opening round.

0:02:300:02:34

Who do we think?

0:02:340:02:35

-Chris.

-We will go for Chris.

-Chris, please.

0:02:350:02:39

Chris, you are playing sport.

0:02:390:02:42

The last three sports rounds I have played, I have won.

0:02:420:02:45

Let's play the round, then. It's sports.

0:02:450:02:48

Pauline and Chris playing it from the question room, please.

0:02:480:02:52

So, Pauline, we know about the interest in rugby.

0:02:520:02:56

What about other sports, do you watch or participate in?

0:02:560:02:59

I broke my arm playing football a couple of months ago.

0:02:590:03:03

And I'm currently training for a triathlon.

0:03:030:03:06

Tell me about the incident with the broken arm.

0:03:060:03:08

-This was punching an opposing player?

-Unfortunately not.

0:03:080:03:12

I was playing in a tournament, and within the first couple of minutes

0:03:120:03:15

of the first match, I managed to fall over, fractured my arm.

0:03:150:03:20

I didn't realise it was fractured, kept playing for the rest of the day

0:03:200:03:24

until I realised that I wasn't able to drive home.

0:03:240:03:27

Then I had to go and get my arm in plaster for eight weeks.

0:03:270:03:30

Oh, dear. Are you sure rugby is the right sport to be taking up after that?

0:03:300:03:33

-It is better than my luck at football, I suppose!

-Too true.

0:03:330:03:38

Do you want to go first or second in this round?

0:03:380:03:42

-I will go first, please.

-First, Pauline, here is your question.

0:03:420:03:47

What role did Michael Vaughan usually play in the England

0:03:470:03:50

cricket team, batsman, fast bowler or wicketkeeper?

0:03:500:03:54

Michael Vaughan. I saw a picture of him in the paper the other day.

0:03:540:04:00

Cricket wouldn't be my...

0:04:000:04:02

-Not one of your sports?

-No.

0:04:050:04:08

This is going to be a complete guess. I am going to go with...

0:04:100:04:16

Michael Vaughan...

0:04:160:04:18

I know what he looks like, and I think I can see him throwing a ball.

0:04:190:04:24

-I am going to go with fast bowler.

-OK, fast bowler.

0:04:240:04:27

Throwing the ball may have been in his fielding skills as well,

0:04:270:04:30

pretty quick at getting the ball back to the wicketkeeper,

0:04:300:04:33

but he neither was a fast bowler or a wicketkeeper.

0:04:330:04:37

Batsman, a key batsman for England during those great Ashes years.

0:04:370:04:41

And it means nothing there for you,

0:04:410:04:44

and let's see what Chris does with his first question.

0:04:440:04:47

Which footballer scored five goals for Tottenham Hotspur

0:04:470:04:50

in a Premiership match against Wigan in 2009?

0:04:500:04:53

Well, Kevin'd know.

0:04:570:04:58

Who is still playing?

0:04:590:05:02

I don't think Michael Owen is still playing for them.

0:05:020:05:05

-But I will go for Jermain Defoe.

-Yes, that is correct.

0:05:050:05:09

Jermain Defoe who scored those five goals against Wigan.

0:05:090:05:13

So, you have one tick for those five goals,

0:05:130:05:15

and it means, Pauline, let's get you started with your second question.

0:05:150:05:19

Which golfer was knighted in 2009?

0:05:190:05:22

-Again, golf wouldn't be one of my sports.

-Oh dear.

0:05:260:05:32

Um... Sorry, guys.

0:05:320:05:34

The only one I have heard of

0:05:360:05:39

who would probably be reasonably high profile

0:05:390:05:42

would be Nick Faldo, so I'm going to go with him.

0:05:420:05:47

Sir Nick Faldo is the right answer. Well done. You got it!

0:05:470:05:51

OK, you are on the board, and a question about a board,

0:05:510:05:55

a dartboard, now, for Chris.

0:05:550:05:57

On a dartboard, which number sits at the nine o'clock

0:05:570:05:59

position between the 8 and the 14?

0:05:590:06:02

There is no rhyme or reason or logic to these things, is there?

0:06:090:06:13

-11.

-Do you play?

-No, not for years.

-Well, you have got it.

0:06:160:06:20

It is the right answer.

0:06:200:06:22

Yes, 11 between 8 and 14 in the nine o'clock position on the dartboard.

0:06:220:06:26

Which means you need to get this, Pauline.

0:06:260:06:29

The Sinclair coefficients is a formula used to compare

0:06:290:06:32

the ability of competitors in which sport?

0:06:320:06:35

Sinclair coefficients.

0:06:380:06:41

Sinclair. That sounds like the person who would have devised the theory.

0:06:410:06:45

Which again, I have no clue about.

0:06:450:06:50

None of that even relates to anything in my brain.

0:06:520:06:55

Again, sorry in advance, guys, I'm going to have to take a wild guess.

0:06:550:07:00

-I am going to go with weightlifting.

-Is that one of your sports?

0:07:000:07:04

-Unfortunately not!

-Not with a damaged arm. It is the right answer, though.

0:07:040:07:09

Well done. Sinclair coefficients.

0:07:090:07:13

Well worked out there, Pauline.

0:07:130:07:15

Really coming back very strongly indeed after a shaky start.

0:07:150:07:19

But that shaky start means Chris can take the round if he gives me a correct answer here.

0:07:190:07:24

How many points did Denise Lewis score in the heptathlon to win her gold medal at the 2000 Olympics?

0:07:240:07:30

Hepthalon, well, it's...

0:07:360:07:40

700 is 7,000. It's not 7,584.

0:07:400:07:45

I don't think she'll have won with 5,584, so I'll go with 6,584.

0:07:450:07:49

6,584 won Denise Lewis a gold medal

0:07:500:07:53

and won you a place in the final round.

0:07:530:07:55

It's correct. Bad luck, Pauline, coming back really strongly there

0:07:550:08:00

but slipped up at the first, which means you won't be playing in the final round.

0:08:000:08:04

Would you both come back and join your teams.

0:08:040:08:07

First try to the Eggheads, knocked Pauline out, got very close there.

0:08:080:08:12

Chris has won four sport rounds on the bounce. Pretty good, that.

0:08:120:08:16

OK, let's play out next category. This subject is Arts & Books.

0:08:160:08:21

Who'd like to play this one? Arts & Books, can't be you, Pauline.

0:08:210:08:25

-Any of your friends there.

-OK.

0:08:250:08:28

I like the way you did that without speaking, Rebecca. Very elegant.

0:08:300:08:34

Now who would you like for the Eggheads? It can't be Chris.

0:08:340:08:37

-Not CJ.

-No?

-No. Which one looks less confident?

0:08:370:08:41

-And not Daphne.

-Not Daphne?

-Yeah.

-OK.

-Barry.

-Barry.

0:08:430:08:50

After some pondering they've picked you, you look less confident.

0:08:500:08:53

-It's always the case.

-Always picking on Barry.

0:08:530:08:56

Let's have Rebecca and Barry into the question room.

0:08:560:09:00

So, Rebecca, how did you get into rugby?

0:09:000:09:02

Did you answer Ross's ad, did you play before?

0:09:020:09:05

I did answer his ad. I was looking for pilates classes in Belfast.

0:09:050:09:09

Completely off track and fell into the rugby ad and thought, "why not?"

0:09:090:09:13

I suppose there's a bit of stretching in rugby. Would you like to go first or second?

0:09:130:09:17

I'd like to go second, please.

0:09:170:09:19

Barry's in first and this is your question.

0:09:220:09:25

In Shakespeare's Hamlet, over whose skull does Hamlet reminisce?

0:09:250:09:29

-"Alas, poor Yorick." It was Yorick's skull.

-What's the next line?

0:09:320:09:36

"I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest."

0:09:360:09:39

Very good. Yorick it is.

0:09:390:09:42

That's you on the board and your first question, Rebecca.

0:09:420:09:46

What term is used to refer to the analysis of the metrical structure of verse?

0:09:460:09:50

I'm going to say...

0:09:540:09:57

Oh. I don't think it's conjugation.

0:09:590:10:02

-Mnemonics.

-OK.

0:10:040:10:07

No, it's not. It's scansion, not mnemonics.

0:10:070:10:12

How would you have been with Yorick?

0:10:130:10:16

-Do you know your Hamlet, your Shakespeare?

-I know Macbeth.

0:10:160:10:21

You might have struggled a bit.

0:10:210:10:23

Just out of interest, more often than not, the Challengers

0:10:230:10:26

choose to go first, you put Barry in and he got that.

0:10:260:10:30

He's in the lead and will have a bigger lead if he's correct here.

0:10:300:10:33

Who wrote the 2010 novel, The Pregnant Widow?

0:10:330:10:36

That one's passed me by completely. Let's see. The Pregnant Widow.

0:10:400:10:45

-On no basis, whatsoever, I shall say Alan Hollinghurst.

-OK.

0:10:470:10:52

Alan Hollinghurst... The Eggheads not too pleased with you, Barry.

0:10:520:10:55

-It is...

-Martin Amis.

-Martin Amis! So that really did pass you by.

0:10:570:11:04

Good news for you, Rebecca.

0:11:040:11:06

If you get this it'll be all square.

0:11:060:11:08

"Death be not proud though some have called thee

0:11:080:11:12

"Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so"

0:11:120:11:14

are the opening lines to a poem by which writer?

0:11:140:11:18

Something's drawing me towards Pope because it doesn't sound like Milton.

0:11:270:11:31

I'd say Alexander Pope.

0:11:310:11:33

Alexander Pope for "Death be not proud, though some have called thee

0:11:330:11:36

"Mighty and dreadful, for though art not so."

0:11:360:11:38

What do you think, Barry? Alexander Pope.

0:11:380:11:40

-No, it's John Donne.

-John Donne is the answer.

0:11:400:11:45

It means Barry still has a lead

0:11:470:11:48

from those first questions and will win the round if he gives me a correct answer here.

0:11:480:11:54

Who wrote the poem, The Wild Swans At Coole?

0:11:540:11:57

Oh, that's another one I don't know. This is fun.

0:12:010:12:04

Something is telling me it's Yeats, so I shall go for Yeats.

0:12:070:12:10

Yeats for the Wild Swans At Coole. It's the right answer,

0:12:100:12:13

which means you have won the round.

0:12:130:12:15

I don't get to put another question to you, Rebecca. Sorry about that.

0:12:150:12:19

You won't be playing for the 12 grand.

0:12:190:12:21

Would you both please come back and join your teams.

0:12:210:12:24

Now, as it stands, Ards Ladies, two of you have been knocked out of the final round.

0:12:240:12:29

No Eggheads have gone. With two more head-to-heads, that would even it up

0:12:290:12:32

if you're successful in both those in the final round.

0:12:320:12:35

Let's see what happens in our next round and it's Geography.

0:12:350:12:39

Who'd like to play this, Geography? Ross, you can play Donna or Debbie.

0:12:390:12:44

-Want to you want to do, shall I go?

-Are you happy to go?

-Yeah, OK.

0:12:450:12:49

-Who am I going against?

-We'll have Debbie going.

0:12:490:12:52

Which Egghead would you like to play? It can't be Chris or Barry,

0:12:520:12:56

-so that's Daphne, CJ or Kevin.

-I'd say, Daphne.

-Yeah, Daphne.

0:12:560:13:00

I'll play against Daphne because I'll not feel too bad when I lose.

0:13:000:13:05

That's not the spirit! Coach, have a word with her.

0:13:050:13:09

I'm sure you'll do very well. Let's see how you do in the question room, Debbie and Daphne.

0:13:090:13:16

Debbie, have you decided what position you want to play in the team?

0:13:160:13:19

No, I don't know anything to do with rugby so I'll put my faith in Ross. He can assign me a position.

0:13:190:13:25

-I see. Ross, you've got your work cut out there.

-Yeah, a lot of pressure.

0:13:250:13:29

All right, Debbie, would you like to go first or second?

0:13:290:13:32

I'll go second, please.

0:13:320:13:34

OK, putting the Egghead in first.

0:13:360:13:39

That means you get the first question, Daphne.

0:13:390:13:43

The island of Tasmania lies off which coast of Australia?

0:13:430:13:47

It's off the... Down the bottom, so it's south.

0:13:500:13:54

It's that how an Egghead describes the points on the compass,

0:13:550:13:58

-up, down, left and right?

-No, it's the way I do it.

0:13:580:14:02

OK, south is the right answer for Tasmania.

0:14:020:14:05

Debbie, in which country is the Suez Canal located?

0:14:060:14:10

That's a tough one. I've absolutely no idea.

0:14:140:14:17

I am going to say Libya.

0:14:170:14:22

-OK, Suez Canal, it's not Libya. Daphne?

-Egypt.

0:14:220:14:27

Egypt is the answer you wanted there.

0:14:270:14:30

The Suez crisis centring around that. So, you have the lead, Daphne.

0:14:300:14:36

Second question for each of you.

0:14:360:14:38

Which shipping forecast area lies in the English Channel between Portland and Dover?

0:14:380:14:43

Oh, God! I think...

0:14:490:14:52

Yes, it must be. Wight.

0:14:520:14:55

-You're just doing it on the geography there.

-Yes.

0:14:560:15:01

Yeah, you can work out where Portland and Dover are

0:15:010:15:04

and Isle Of Wight inbetween. It's the right answer, yes.

0:15:040:15:08

You need to get this, Debbie.

0:15:080:15:09

In the north of England the term "beck" refers to what type of geographical feature?

0:15:090:15:14

Oh, dear. Er, right...

0:15:180:15:21

Beck, well, back home, when we say "beck" that would mean face.

0:15:210:15:27

Only it would be spelt different.

0:15:290:15:31

So, what would be more like a face, a mountain, stream or valley?

0:15:310:15:34

Er, dear. Well I suppose a river has a mouth, there's a mouth on a face.

0:15:360:15:43

I'm not gonna go for stream.

0:15:430:15:46

-I'm gonna say valley.

-OK, valley. Barry?

0:15:480:15:53

-A stream.

-You've messed around in plenty of them in your time, I bet.

0:15:530:15:57

-I certainly have.

-It's a stream.

0:15:570:16:02

You were gonna say that with some rather interesting logic.

0:16:020:16:05

It would have led you to the correct answer but you didn't get it.

0:16:050:16:08

There's plenty of becks in the valleys but it is a stream.

0:16:080:16:12

That means, I'm afraid,

0:16:120:16:14

you won't be in the final round. Daphne's through. Would you both come back and join your teams.

0:16:140:16:20

Well, Ards ladies, you're 3-0 down. The Eggheads are all there.

0:16:200:16:23

You've lost three brains from the final round. I'm sure out of adversity great things will come.

0:16:230:16:28

Last head-to-head coming up, let's get an Egghead out.

0:16:280:16:31

This is Film & Television. Who'd like to play, Ross or Donna?

0:16:310:16:36

-Shall I do it? That's dead on.

-OK, Donna's keen to go.

0:16:360:16:39

Donna, keen to play and you've got CJ or Kevin here.

0:16:390:16:43

-I'll take on Kevin.

-Kevin?

-Yeah.

-We'll have Kevin.

0:16:430:16:46

OK, let's have Donna and Kevin into the question room, please.

0:16:460:16:50

Donna, I guess when you're training with the team you'll miss a few of your favourite TV shows?

0:16:500:16:55

-Oh, I know.

-What do you like to watch?

0:16:550:16:58

I'm more American soaps, kind of thing. Films, DVDs...

0:16:580:17:03

Whatever's on the TV, really.

0:17:030:17:06

Ideally suited to the category! Would you like to go first or second?

0:17:060:17:10

I'll go first, please.

0:17:100:17:11

All right, good luck, Donna and first question.

0:17:140:17:16

In which children's TV show do the characters often say, "Eh-oh"?

0:17:160:17:20

Erm, I was in school when that came out.

0:17:240:17:28

-I believe it was the Teletubbies.

-The Teletubbies?

0:17:280:17:30

Yes, it's the right answer. I'm not going to say it again.

0:17:300:17:35

A good start, that's what we wanted, straight on the board.

0:17:350:17:39

Kevin, what's the name of dwarf-like people Dorothy meets in the 1939 film, The Wizard Of Oz?

0:17:390:17:45

They were the Munchkins.

0:17:490:17:51

There are various stories about how wild the actors playing them were.

0:17:510:17:57

They apparently all got mass drunkenness at some point.

0:17:570:18:01

Lots of stories about the making of The Wizard Of Oz.

0:18:010:18:04

-Drunken Munchkins.

-Yes.

0:18:040:18:06

Didn't I read somewhere that some of them were children

0:18:060:18:09

in the background, obviously they didn't have CGI.

0:18:090:18:12

-There seemed to be dozens of them.

-I don't know about that.

0:18:120:18:16

A lot of myths have grown up around it as well.

0:18:160:18:19

OK, well, Munchkins is correct. That's Dorothy meets the Munchkins.

0:18:190:18:23

Both successfully on the board there with the first question.

0:18:230:18:27

Donna, your second one.

0:18:270:18:29

In the TV sitcom Gavin and Stacey, what's the name of Smithy's sister, played by Sheridan Smith?

0:18:290:18:34

-Do you watch it?

-Yeah. Quite a lot.

0:18:390:18:42

-I'm going to go for Rudi.

-Rudi?

-Yeah. I'm pretty sure but I may be wrong.

0:18:450:18:52

OK, you're either right or wrong and you are right.

0:18:520:18:56

Yes, Rudi, well remembered. Rudi, Smithy's sister.

0:18:560:19:00

OK, Kevin's second question.

0:19:000:19:03

Who played the role of Miss Fritton, the headmistress, in the 2007 film, St Trinians?

0:19:030:19:08

Yes, doing his Alastair Sim. It was Rupert Everett.

0:19:110:19:16

-Yep, Rupert Everett is correct and in the second one, as well.

-Yep.

0:19:160:19:20

So, two-all.

0:19:200:19:23

Good stuff, Donna. This might take you to the final round.

0:19:230:19:26

Who played Jill, the ex-wife of Isaac, played by Woody Allen in the 1979 film, Manhattan?

0:19:260:19:33

I've never seen the film before. I'm not too sure who it would be.

0:19:410:19:48

I'll go for...

0:19:500:19:53

Jessica Lange. Yeah, I'll go for that.

0:19:550:19:59

-OK, it's Jessica Lange.

-Lange, sorry.

0:19:590:20:02

Woody Allen's wife, he plays Isaac and Jill his ex-wife is played by...

0:20:020:20:08

-Kevin, is it Jessica Lange?

-No, Meryl Streep.

0:20:080:20:10

Not a big part but it was the early days for her in films at that time.

0:20:100:20:15

It is Meryl Streep. You hadn't seen it, so it was a guess,

0:20:150:20:20

went down the middle. So, a chance for Kevin.

0:20:200:20:24

What mode of transport is referred to in the title of the 2002 film,

0:20:240:20:28

K-19, The Widowmaker, starring Harrison Ford?

0:20:280:20:31

I believe it's meant to be a Russian variety, it's a submarine.

0:20:350:20:38

-Submarine?

-Mmm.

-I'm loving the question, mode of transport?

-Yes.

0:20:380:20:42

I often get the submarine to work myself and if not I take the tank!

0:20:420:20:47

Yeah, of course.

0:20:470:20:49

K-19 is a submarine, it's the right answer.

0:20:490:20:54

Well done, Kevin. Donna, you were beaten by an Egghead.

0:20:540:20:57

As a result you won't be able to help your team in the final round.

0:20:570:21:01

Would you both please come back and join your teams.

0:21:010:21:04

This is what we've been playing towards, it's the final round,

0:21:040:21:08

which as always is General Knowledge.

0:21:080:21:11

Those of you who lost your head-to-heads won't be allowed to take part in this round.

0:21:110:21:15

So, Pauline, Donna, Debbie

0:21:150:21:16

and Rebecca from Ards Ladies, would you please leave the studio.

0:21:160:21:20

So, Ross, you're playing to win the Ards Ladies £12,000.

0:21:210:21:25

Kevin, CJ, Daphne, Chris and Barry - a long list.

0:21:250:21:29

You're playing for something which money can't buy, that is the Eggheads' reputation.

0:21:290:21:34

I'll ask each team three questions in turn. This time the questions are all general knowledge

0:21:340:21:38

and you are allowed to confer.

0:21:380:21:40

Ross, the question is, is your one brain better than the Eggheads' five?

0:21:400:21:44

-Ross, first or second?

-I'll go first, please.

0:21:440:21:47

All right, best of luck, let's see if you can do it and take £12,000.

0:21:490:21:53

It has been done before, one player on their own beating the Eggheads.

0:21:530:21:57

Let's see if you can match that. Your first question is this.

0:21:570:22:00

Claire Rayner, born in 1931, became famous in which role?

0:22:000:22:05

It's not really a name I'm familiar with, to be honest.

0:22:090:22:13

If it's a big name I'd doubt that it's to do with dog training

0:22:150:22:18

from that era.

0:22:180:22:20

I would go with agony aunt.

0:22:240:22:25

Agony aunt, I think you put the Ards Ladies through some agonies.

0:22:250:22:29

I think they knew it. It is the right answer, yes, agony aunt.

0:22:290:22:34

OK, Eggheads, Let's Get Ready To Rhumble was a 1994 top ten

0:22:340:22:39

single for two characters from which TV show?

0:22:390:22:42

It's PJ and Duncan from Byker Grove, later became Ant and Dec.

0:22:450:22:49

-We think that's Byker Grove.

-Byker Grove, Let's Get Ready To Rhumble.

0:22:490:22:53

That's the one we were looking for. Back to you, Ross.

0:22:530:22:58

Who topped Forbes' magazine's 2010 billionaires list?

0:22:580:23:02

I think there was a lot of stuff about it

0:23:060:23:10

because it's the first year that Bill Gates hasn't topped it.

0:23:100:23:13

That would rule him out.

0:23:130:23:15

-My guts tell me it's Carlos Slim.

-OK, Carlos Slim?

-Yeah.

0:23:180:23:22

It's the right answer, well done. Eggheads, Mexican...?

0:23:220:23:26

Telecommunications.

0:23:280:23:30

OK, Eggheads, the choroid is found in which part of the body?

0:23:300:23:34

-I think it's the eye.

-Yeah?

0:23:380:23:41

We are going for the eye on that one, Dermot.

0:23:410:23:43

Good stuff, right answer. The choroid is in the eye. It's two-all.

0:23:430:23:48

Ross, if you get this right, you're in the driving seat and one hand on the 12 grand.

0:23:480:23:52

Let's see.

0:23:520:23:53

The footballer Roger Miller scored four goals for which team in the 1990 World Cup at the age of 38?

0:23:530:24:01

I'm gonna go for Algeria. Pure guess.

0:24:060:24:09

OK, Algeria, Roger Miller scoring four goals

0:24:090:24:12

and became famous for his celebrations when he scored.

0:24:120:24:15

He used to wiggle around the corner flag, didn't he?

0:24:150:24:18

-Roger Miller scored four goals for, Eggheads, Algeria?

-Cameroon.

0:24:180:24:22

Cameroon. Cameroon, it was.

0:24:220:24:25

So, bad luck and instead of being in the driving seat,

0:24:250:24:29

you're now staring defeat in the face. You've got to hope the Eggheads don't get this.

0:24:290:24:33

Jean Carles, born in 1892, became well-known in the 20th century fashion world in what role?

0:24:330:24:40

-Spelling, please.

-Surname.

0:24:430:24:45

C-A-R-L-E-S.

0:24:450:24:47

If I was making a guess I'd say perfumer.

0:24:470:24:50

I'm wondering... I've got something nagging me about Carles and shoes.

0:24:540:24:57

I only know a few hairdressers and nothing around that time.

0:24:570:25:01

Perfumers, I know none.

0:25:010:25:03

Early 20th century, how many famous hairdressers would there have been?

0:25:030:25:10

My instinct is shoe designer

0:25:100:25:12

but I'm happy to be shot down if anyone's got anything.

0:25:120:25:15

-You thought shoe designer.

-That was my instinct but I don't know.

0:25:150:25:20

-Anybody?

-I'm happy to go with that.

0:25:200:25:24

We have absolutely no idea beyond the vaguest inklings,

0:25:240:25:29

-so we're going for shoe designer.

-Shoe designer, Jean Carles.

0:25:290:25:34

So, first instinct Daphne, perfumer and these two, shoe designer.

0:25:340:25:39

-Er, perfumer. It's the wrong answer.

-There you go.

0:25:390:25:42

Daphne's first instinct would have collected the game for you.

0:25:420:25:46

You're still in it, Ross.

0:25:460:25:49

It's sudden death for the first time, which means we're removing the multiple choice element

0:25:490:25:54

if it's all-square after three questions.

0:25:540:25:57

Ross, the three buildings dubbed the Three Graces on the city of Liverpool's waterfront

0:25:570:26:02

are the Liver Building, the Port Of Liverpool building and which other?

0:26:020:26:07

The three buildings dubbed the Three Graces on the city of Liverpool's waterfront

0:26:070:26:12

are the Liver Building, the Port Of Liverpool building and which other?

0:26:120:26:18

-Now, have you been to Liverpool, Ross?

-Just travelling through it.

0:26:180:26:23

-On the ferry from Belfast?

-Yeah.

0:26:230:26:26

I know the Port Of Liverpool building was refurbished last year by Belfast architects.

0:26:260:26:34

Some controversy.

0:26:360:26:39

As to placing the third building, it would just be a pure guess.

0:26:410:26:48

I'm trying to think of a third building, to be honest.

0:26:480:26:51

The Town Hall?

0:26:540:26:56

Is that what you're saying? It's better to say something than nothing.

0:26:560:27:01

I have seen them landed but not this time, it's not the Town Hall.

0:27:010:27:04

-It is, do you know, Eggheads?

-The Cunard Building.

-The Cunard Building.

0:27:040:27:07

The Cunard Building, making up the Three Graces of Liverpool.

0:27:070:27:13

Well, Eggheads, if you get this you have won the round

0:27:130:27:17

and if you should do that then you've been a lucky set of Eggheads.

0:27:170:27:20

Here's the question.

0:27:200:27:22

The Secret Policeman's Ball is the benefit show held periodically for which charity?

0:27:220:27:27

The Secret Policeman's Ball is the benefit show held periodically for which charity?

0:27:270:27:32

-Amnesty International?

-Amnesty International.

0:27:320:27:35

I've run three marathons for them, Amnesty International.

0:27:350:27:37

Amnesty International, that is the correct answer. Eggheads, you have won.

0:27:370:27:42

Well, well, well, what a game. None of these games of Eggheads are ever predictable.

0:27:470:27:52

It didn't go well, as I'm sure you will admit.

0:27:520:27:55

All the team would admit in the head-to-heads.

0:27:550:27:57

It looked like things would go badly in the final round but you were a whisker away from winning the money.

0:27:570:28:02

It's not often you see the Eggheads getting questions wrong. Good luck in the scrum downs

0:28:020:28:07

or whatever it is you're practising over the next few months.

0:28:070:28:10

Let us know about the results. We'll all come and watch.

0:28:100:28:13

Thanks, Ross, and the Ards Ladies. The Eggheads have done what comes naturally to them

0:28:130:28:17

and their winning streak continues. You won't be going home with the £12,000.

0:28:170:28:21

The money rolls over to the next show.

0:28:210:28:24

Eggheads, congratulations, who will beat you?

0:28:240:28:27

Do join us next time to see if a new team of challengers have the brains to defeat the Eggheads.

0:28:270:28:31

£13,000 says they don't. Until then, goodbye.
