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?

0:00:170:00:19

Welcome to Eggheads,

0:00:240:00:25

the show where a team of five challengers pit their wits

0:00:250:00:28

against possibly the greatest quiz team in Britain.

0:00:280:00:31

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

0:00:310:00:35

They are the Eggheads.

0:00:350:00:37

Taking on the might of our quiz Goliaths today

0:00:370:00:39

are 3 O'Clock Saturday.

0:00:390:00:41

This team are connected through the football club FC United of Manchester,

0:00:410:00:45

a club formed in 2005 that provides affordable spectator football

0:00:450:00:50

for anyone who can make it to a game. Let's meet them.

0:00:500:00:54

Hi, I'm Dennis, I'm 41 and I'm a health club manager.

0:00:540:00:57

Hi, I'm Tom, I'm 25 and I work in marketing.

0:00:570:01:00

Hi, I'm Garry, I'm 47 and I have a dry cleaning business.

0:01:000:01:04

Hi, I'm Steven, I'm 36 and I'm wholesale product improvement executive.

0:01:040:01:08

Hi, I'm Mike, I'm 61 and I'm a retired bookmaker.

0:01:080:01:11

Welcome to you, 3 O'Clock Saturday.

0:01:110:01:13

Tell me about the club, FC United of Manchester.

0:01:130:01:16

-It's been going, what, five or six years?

-We were formed in 2005

0:01:160:01:19

in reaction to the commercialisation of football.

0:01:190:01:22

We want to provide affordable football for the local community to be able to go to games.

0:01:220:01:28

-Are you all Man United fans, though?

-Originally, yes.

0:01:280:01:31

And tell me about the team title - 3 O'Clock Saturday.

0:01:310:01:33

Is this also a protest about them moving the games around?

0:01:330:01:37

In the old days, there'd be the odd game on a Sunday,

0:01:370:01:40

but now at five on Saturday, if you want the results, there's only been a few games.

0:01:400:01:45

Exactly. We were getting bored of being dictated to as to when the games would be,

0:01:450:01:49

so all of our games, whenever possible, are at 3 o'clock on a Saturday.

0:01:490:01:53

Saturday afternoon, somebody else in the family can go shopping,

0:01:530:01:57

-and you can go to the match.

-Definitely. Definitely.

0:01:570:02:00

Good idea. Best of luck against the Eggheads, 3 O'Clock Saturday.

0:02:000:02:04

Every day there's £1,000 of cash up for grabs for our challengers.

0:02:040:02:08

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

0:02:080:02:12

So, 3 O'Clock Saturday, the Eggheads have won the last 12 games

0:02:120:02:15

and that means £13,000 says you can't beat the Eggheads.

0:02:150:02:19

And our first head-to-head battle is on the subject of politics.

0:02:190:02:23

-Who'd like to play this?

-I think, Garry, you were going to go...

-Yeah.

0:02:230:02:29

-I think we're going to choose Garry for this one.

-OK, Garry.

0:02:290:02:33

Which Egghead would you like to play?

0:02:330:02:35

-I think they're all quite good at politics.

-None of them?

0:02:350:02:39

Should we go with Barry, do you think?

0:02:390:02:41

-Yeah.

-Why not?

-We're going to choose Barry, please.

0:02:410:02:44

OK, Garry and Barry. That has a nice ring to it.

0:02:440:02:47

Let's have you into the question room

0:02:470:02:49

so you can't confer with your team-mates.

0:02:490:02:51

Well, Garry, you're playing this politics round.

0:02:530:02:56

-Do you want to go first or second?

-I'll go first.

0:02:560:02:58

OK, good luck, Garry, and your first question is this.

0:03:010:03:05

Which term refers to a legal process of removing an undesirable person from political office?

0:03:050:03:10

Erm... We all heard it when they were talking about Clinton,

0:03:140:03:18

so I will go for impeachment.

0:03:180:03:20

Impeachment is the right answer. Yes, well done.

0:03:200:03:23

Right, Barry. First question for you.

0:03:250:03:28

In which year did Menzies Campbell become leader of the Liberal Democrats?

0:03:280:03:32

Er... Mm. This was quite recent, wasn't it?

0:03:360:03:39

It certainly wasn't as far back as 1996.

0:03:390:03:42

I don't think it was as far back as 2001.

0:03:420:03:45

I think it was 2006.

0:03:450:03:46

2006 is correct, yes. Good start for you, Barry.

0:03:460:03:49

And, Garry, your second question.

0:03:490:03:52

Which ministry did the Labour politician Nye Bevan hold

0:03:520:03:55

between 1945 and 1951?

0:03:550:03:58

Nye Bevan, of course, is famous for the setting up of the NHS,

0:04:010:04:06

so I would say Health.

0:04:060:04:08

That's the one, yeah. Well done. Nye Bevan and the NHS.

0:04:080:04:11

Barry, in 1997, which leading sports administrator was at the centre

0:04:120:04:17

of a controversy over the attitude to Tony Blair's government

0:04:170:04:20

towards tobacco advertising?

0:04:200:04:23

Well, I think it was Bernie Ecclestone.

0:04:260:04:28

Bernie Ecclestone is the right answer.

0:04:280:04:30

And it's all square - two each. Garry, here you go.

0:04:300:04:34

Which 19th century French political thinker

0:04:340:04:37

coined the slogan "Property is theft"?

0:04:370:04:39

Now you've got me thinking.

0:04:440:04:46

I think I would go for the third one - Rousseau.

0:04:480:04:51

Rousseau for "property is theft".

0:04:510:04:54

-It's not, Garry. Barry, of the other two?

-It was Proudhon.

0:04:540:04:58

Proudhon. Property is theft.

0:04:580:05:00

So are you going to pinch the round? You will if you get this right.

0:05:000:05:04

Which short-term political solution of the late 1970s

0:05:040:05:07

has since been used as the basis for calculating expenditure

0:05:070:05:11

between the countries of the United Kingdom?

0:05:110:05:13

Well, it's not the Schengen Agreement.

0:05:180:05:21

That's about allowing people of different nationalities in the EC to come to each other's country.

0:05:210:05:26

I think that was the Barnett formula.

0:05:260:05:28

The Barnett formula. Is he right, Eggheads?

0:05:280:05:30

-Yes.

-It's what I'd go for.

-It's correct, yes.

0:05:300:05:34

Barry, that means you have just taken that round.

0:05:340:05:37

A good player, there, in Garry but he got caught out.

0:05:370:05:41

You'll play in the final, Barry, but there's no place for Garry.

0:05:410:05:44

Please come back and join your teams.

0:05:440:05:46

So one-nil to the Eggheads, one brain less for 3 O'Clock Saturday.

0:05:470:05:51

Plenty more quizzing to come.

0:05:510:05:53

The next category is music. Who'd like to play this one?

0:05:530:05:56

I think it's between Mike and Steve.

0:05:560:05:58

-Shall we save you?

-Whichever.

-Steve, do you want to do it?

-Absolutely.

0:05:580:06:02

-We'll go with Steven, please.

-And who'd you like to play?

0:06:020:06:05

-I think there's only one choice.

-Who's that then?

-Chris?

0:06:050:06:10

-Shall we go with Chris?

-Why not?

-OK, we'll go up against Chris, please.

0:06:100:06:14

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

0:06:140:06:17

Steven, Garry got close. Let's see if you can get into the final round.

0:06:170:06:22

-Would you like to go first or second?

-I'll go first, please.

0:06:220:06:26

Best of luck. First question.

0:06:280:06:31

What is the name of the trio of female singers that support the singer known as Kid Creole?

0:06:310:06:36

Right. It's certainly not my type of music, I've got to say,

0:06:390:06:43

but I do know that's definitely the Coconuts.

0:06:430:06:46

Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Right answer, yes.

0:06:460:06:48

One to you and, Chris, first question.

0:06:480:06:50

The singer known as Lady Gaga was born Stefani Germanotta

0:06:500:06:55

in which city in 1986?

0:06:550:06:58

Well, she's not Italian, so she's not from Verona.

0:07:010:07:03

Er... If it was Montreal, she'd be French Canadian.

0:07:030:07:07

She doesn't sound at all like Celine Dion,

0:07:070:07:09

so she must have been born in New York.

0:07:090:07:11

New York is the right answer, yes. Well done.

0:07:110:07:14

OK, second questions each. Steven's first.

0:07:140:07:18

What is the stage name of the rap star born Robert Van Winkle

0:07:180:07:23

in 1967?

0:07:230:07:25

I remember his song very well

0:07:280:07:30

and I believe he played Glastonbury in 2010

0:07:300:07:34

and I think it's going to be Vanilla Ice.

0:07:340:07:36

It's the right answer. Well done.

0:07:360:07:40

Are you glad you avoided that, Chris?

0:07:400:07:42

-Well, you know my opinion of rap music.

-Yes, we do.

0:07:420:07:46

Don't go any further.

0:07:460:07:48

OK, your second question might suit you a bit better,

0:07:490:07:53

the way these have fallen.

0:07:530:07:54

According to the title of the music hall song

0:07:540:07:57

that was made particularly famous by Marie Lloyd,

0:07:570:08:00

The Boy I Love is in which part of the theatre?

0:08:000:08:03

He's Up In The Gallery, Dermot.

0:08:070:08:08

# There is, can't you see? Waving of his handkerchief. #

0:08:080:08:12

-I knew you'd like that question.

-That's my era.

0:08:120:08:15

It's the right answer.

0:08:150:08:16

OK, we need a few rap questions or girl bands to come Chris's way

0:08:160:08:22

but it hasn't happened yet.

0:08:220:08:23

Steven's concentrating on his own questions and doing well. Third question.

0:08:230:08:27

Which Russian composer was a chemistry professor,

0:08:270:08:31

who regarded chemistry, rather than music, as his main career?

0:08:310:08:34

Following the last two questions, not quite my...

0:08:380:08:41

not quite my era, obviously. Erm...

0:08:420:08:45

I'm going to take a guess and go for Rimsky-Korsakov.

0:08:470:08:51

OK. Rimsky-Korsakov.

0:08:510:08:54

-It's not. Do you know, Chris, of the other two?

-Borodin.

0:08:540:08:58

It's Borodin and a chance, then, for Chris.

0:08:580:09:02

From the late 1940s, Renata Tebaldi became famous in which musical role?

0:09:020:09:07

I'm a bit of a fan of Frasier, as you know,

0:09:110:09:13

and he had a treasured recording of this person in some role or other.

0:09:130:09:17

She's an operatic soprano.

0:09:170:09:19

When that question came up, I said, "He's thinking of Frasier."

0:09:190:09:22

-So you get all your stuff from The Simpsons.

-Yeah.

0:09:220:09:25

Where would you Eggheads be without American television?

0:09:250:09:28

It's the right answer, yes. Renata Tebaldi, operatic soprano.

0:09:280:09:32

Well done, Chris. A music round under the belt

0:09:320:09:35

and it means you're not in the final round, Steven.

0:09:350:09:38

Bad luck. Would you both please rejoin your teams?

0:09:380:09:41

The Eggheads have knocked two members of the 3 O'Clock Saturday team out.

0:09:430:09:47

All the Eggheads are still there but I can see the ability -

0:09:470:09:51

we just need to clinch one of these head-to-heads.

0:09:510:09:54

Let's see if you can do it in this next one. It's science.

0:09:540:09:57

-Who'd like to play this?

-OK, I think you'd offered to do that, Mike.

0:09:570:10:03

I think we're going to go with Mike on this one.

0:10:030:10:06

And which Egghead would you like to play? It can't be Barry or Chris.

0:10:060:10:09

That leaves you Pat, Daphne or CJ.

0:10:090:10:11

-What do we think, guys?

-Do you think Daphne?

0:10:110:10:15

-Go for her.

-The two oldest from each team, I think.

0:10:160:10:18

I think Mike's got a thing for Daphne,

0:10:180:10:21

-so it's got to be Daphne.

-Haven't we all?

0:10:210:10:23

Let's have Mike and Daphne, then, into the question room, please.

0:10:230:10:27

So, Mike, what odds would you give me on you beating Daphne?

0:10:280:10:32

-Double carpet, Dermot. 33-1.

-33-1.

0:10:320:10:35

I think it's a bit shorter than that but we'll see.

0:10:350:10:37

-Would you like to go first or second?

-I'll go first, please, if I may.

0:10:370:10:42

Good luck, Mike. First question.

0:10:450:10:47

What type of removable magnetic diskette for computers

0:10:470:10:51

is now largely outdated

0:10:510:10:52

but came in sizes such 3.5 inch, 5.25 inch and 8 inch?

0:10:520:10:58

They all sound rather impersonal and almost obscene, do some of them,

0:11:010:11:05

but I'll say floppy.

0:11:050:11:06

Floppy.

0:11:070:11:09

I think we'll have no more comments on that. Floppy is correct.

0:11:090:11:13

And your first question, Daphne.

0:11:130:11:15

In what state does the element beryllium exist at room temperature?

0:11:150:11:19

Well, it's not a gas.

0:11:220:11:24

I don't think it's a liquid, so I'm hoping it's a solid.

0:11:240:11:28

-Other Eggheads?

-Yes, of course.

-Oh, right.

-You're all agreed.

0:11:280:11:32

Solid is correct. OK. And Mike's second question.

0:11:320:11:36

The operation of a four-stroke engine is commonly simplified

0:11:360:11:40

to the four words suck, squeeze, bang and which other?

0:11:400:11:43

I'm not a technophobe. I've got a car.

0:11:470:11:49

Erm... I don't think it's slap.

0:11:490:11:53

Thrust gives the indication of power.

0:11:530:11:57

I'll go for thrust.

0:11:590:12:00

Thrust. What do you think, Daphne? Thrust?

0:12:000:12:03

I'd have gone for blow but don't ask me.

0:12:030:12:06

It is blow. Suck, squeeze, bang and blow.

0:12:060:12:09

So it's not thrust. This is turning into Carry On Eggheads,

0:12:090:12:13

all the innuendo. Right, OK.

0:12:130:12:15

It's a chance then for Daphne to take the lead.

0:12:150:12:18

Daphne, the highly enriched version of which radioactive element

0:12:190:12:23

was used in the Little Boy weapon that caused the nuclear explosion

0:12:230:12:26

at Hiroshima in 1945?

0:12:260:12:29

Erm... Well, I'm assuming it's uranium.

0:12:330:12:37

I know ameri... whatever it is, you have in the smoke detectors.

0:12:370:12:44

I don't know what you use curium for. I'd go for uranium.

0:12:440:12:50

It's the right answer, yes. Uranium was used in the Little Boy weapon.

0:12:500:12:54

OK, well, you need to get this, Mike.

0:12:540:12:56

Which generic term refers to the virulent disease

0:12:560:12:59

caused by the pathogen Yersinia pestes?

0:12:590:13:02

Erm... I think measles is rubella.

0:13:060:13:10

Pestes sounds like a pest.

0:13:100:13:12

Plague is rats.

0:13:120:13:14

Malaria...

0:13:140:13:15

My first thought went to the plague, so I'll say the plague.

0:13:170:13:20

You've got to get it to stay in the game and you have.

0:13:200:13:23

It's correct.

0:13:230:13:25

Well done.

0:13:250:13:27

But Daphne has a chance to win the round with this one.

0:13:270:13:30

In April 2010, it was reported

0:13:300:13:33

that the first animals that do not depend on oxygen to breath and reproduce

0:13:330:13:38

had been found on the floor of which body of water?

0:13:380:13:41

OK, I haven't heard this. Erm...

0:13:460:13:50

Going on the logic of going for the biggest one,

0:13:510:13:55

I'll go for the Pacific Ocean.

0:13:550:13:57

-It's the wrong one. No, it's...?

-Mediterranean.

0:13:570:14:00

Yeah. It goes to Sudden Death. Incorrect, there. Mediterranean Sea.

0:14:000:14:04

That's very good news for Mike.

0:14:040:14:06

For the first time in the game we go to Sudden Death.

0:14:060:14:09

You're still very much alive but it gets harder

0:14:090:14:12

because you can't see any choices now

0:14:120:14:15

and your Sudden Death question is this.

0:14:150:14:17

What is the square root of 289?

0:14:170:14:21

I think er... Seven sevens are 49. I think it's 17.

0:14:250:14:30

17. Did the old bookmaker's background come in useful there?

0:14:300:14:34

You must be pretty quick with the odds.

0:14:340:14:36

I'm losing my touch

0:14:360:14:38

but at one time I'd reckon to be the fastest settler in the West.

0:14:380:14:42

Ah! It's the right answer. The square root of 289 is 17.

0:14:420:14:46

OK, Daphne, which species of mammal

0:14:480:14:52

that has become an unwelcome invasive alien in the UK

0:14:520:14:55

has the scientific name Mustela vison?

0:14:550:14:59

I just can't think.

0:15:000:15:01

SHE SIGHS

0:15:020:15:05

Mink?

0:15:060:15:07

I don't know.

0:15:070:15:09

Is the right answer.

0:15:090:15:10

Mink it is, specifically the American mink, but it's a mink.

0:15:110:15:16

Well, Daphne's good at guessing. She just proved it there.

0:15:160:15:19

It's stayed all square.

0:15:190:15:20

-I thought your maths would take you through, Mike.

-Almost.

0:15:200:15:24

Here you go. What type of creatures were Arabella and Anita,

0:15:240:15:31

who were sent into orbit in 1973

0:15:310:15:34

on the Skylab 3 space station mission

0:15:340:15:36

to answer a question about space

0:15:360:15:38

posed by high school student Judy Miles from Massachusetts?

0:15:380:15:42

OK, er, I can remember monkeys and I can remember a dog, I think.

0:15:440:15:50

Er...

0:15:520:15:53

I can't... I'm digging deep but nothing's happening.

0:15:550:15:59

Er... Which is quite normal but...

0:15:590:16:02

-I'm going to say mice.

-Mice.

0:16:040:16:06

-Were they mice, Eggheads?

-They were spiders

0:16:060:16:09

and the question that was posed was can spiders make webs in zero gravity?

0:16:090:16:13

They were spiders, Mike, spiders.

0:16:130:16:15

So a chance again for Daphne.

0:16:150:16:18

In the physics acronym WIMP or "wimp",

0:16:180:16:22

which refers to a possible solution for the problem of dark matter,

0:16:220:16:26

for what does the letter M stand?

0:16:260:16:29

I know WI.

0:16:320:16:34

Erm...

0:16:350:16:36

Is it massive?

0:16:380:16:40

Massive. It's correct.

0:16:400:16:43

-Oh, wow!

-Weakly Interacting Massive Particle.

0:16:430:16:46

What a massive answer that was. It's got you through to the final round.

0:16:460:16:50

Mike, a couple of chances there to go through, didn't get them.

0:16:500:16:54

You won't be in the final round.

0:16:540:16:55

Please come back and join your teams.

0:16:550:16:57

3 O'Clock Saturday. It's getting down to not being able to rustle up a decent crowd.

0:16:590:17:04

Three brains missing from the final round. The Eggheads are all there.

0:17:040:17:08

Our last head to head now.

0:17:080:17:09

Aha. It's sport. I bet you like this one.

0:17:090:17:12

Dennis or Tom can play it.

0:17:120:17:14

I think either of us would consider ourselves OK with this.

0:17:140:17:19

-Do you want to go for it or me?

-I really don't mind.

0:17:190:17:21

-Er, I'd be OK.

-Yeah, Tom's going to have a go at this one.

0:17:210:17:25

OK, Tom. Who have we got left for you? We've got CJ or Pat.

0:17:250:17:29

-I think CJ knows his sport.

-OK.

-He's had a quiet ride.

0:17:290:17:35

I know he knows his tennis and his darts and his snooker these days,

0:17:350:17:40

so I think we're going to go with Pat, please.

0:17:400:17:43

OK. All right, I see. So afeared of CJ's sporting knowledge, which you correctly identified.

0:17:430:17:50

I'm not sure about darts but tennis and snooker.

0:17:500:17:53

-Was it snooker?

-Yes, snooker.

-It's Tom and our Mastermind champion of champions, Pat.

0:17:530:17:59

Into the question room, please.

0:17:590:18:01

OK, Tom. Let's hope for plenty of football questions for you.

0:18:030:18:06

-Would you like to go first or second?

-I'll go second, please.

0:18:060:18:10

Pat, then, first set of questions. Here you go.

0:18:120:18:16

What colour is said to be awarded to students at Oxford or Cambridge

0:18:160:18:19

who represent their university at certain sports?

0:18:190:18:22

I think Hugh Laurie got a blue for rowing

0:18:240:18:27

and people get blues for cricket and rugby and the like,

0:18:270:18:31

so it's a blue.

0:18:310:18:32

An Oxford or Cambridge blue is right.

0:18:320:18:35

OK, blue is the right colour identified by Pat

0:18:350:18:38

and the first question now for Tom.

0:18:380:18:40

The brothers and England rugby union players Tony and Rory Underwood

0:18:400:18:44

both additionally shared which career choice?

0:18:440:18:48

OK, so, rugby's not my best area of sport

0:18:490:18:53

but I'm pretty sure they weren't pilots.

0:18:530:18:56

I think they weren't coal miners

0:18:560:19:00

and I'm hoping they were once policemen.

0:19:000:19:04

Policemen for the Underwoods, Tony and Rory.

0:19:040:19:07

No, they were in the RAF - pilots.

0:19:070:19:10

Pilots. So rugby not on the sporting radar for Tom.

0:19:100:19:14

So Pat has the lead and a bigger one if he gets this.

0:19:140:19:17

In which sport did Luca Cumani become famous?

0:19:170:19:20

I think he's a famous Italian... certainly a horse trainer

0:19:230:19:28

and possibly even a jockey.

0:19:280:19:29

Along with the Dettoris, he's one of the big names

0:19:290:19:32

in Italian horseracing

0:19:320:19:34

and I think he actually trained in England. It's horseracing.

0:19:340:19:38

-Horseracing. Is he right, Mike?

-Yes, he's spot on. A famous trainer.

0:19:380:19:42

-He trained a couple of horses for the Queen.

-Yes, horseracing.

0:19:420:19:45

You've got to get this, Tom.

0:19:450:19:47

The fast bowlers Colin Croft and Patrick Patterson

0:19:470:19:51

played test cricket for which international team?

0:19:510:19:53

Right, so I lived in New Zealand for a year,

0:19:560:19:59

so if it's New Zealand and I get it wrong,

0:19:590:20:03

I'll be getting lots of phone calls tomorrow.

0:20:030:20:06

Er, I'm going to guess at South Africa.

0:20:060:20:10

South Africa. Colin Croft and Patrick Patterson...

0:20:100:20:14

played for the West Indies.

0:20:140:20:16

I think they both played for Lancashire, as well.

0:20:160:20:19

I take it you got the two areas you don't like - cricket and rugby.

0:20:190:20:24

Yeah, basically.

0:20:240:20:25

-I do like them but you either know it or you don't.

-Caught out there.

0:20:250:20:29

It means the round's over. It's two-nil to Pat.

0:20:290:20:31

No point asking any more questions. Pat's taken it.

0:20:310:20:34

Would you both please come back and join your teams?

0:20:340:20:38

So it is time for the final round,

0:20:380:20:41

which, as always, is general knowledge.

0:20:410:20:43

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

0:20:430:20:46

won't be allowed to take part, so Tom, Garry, Steven and Mike,

0:20:460:20:49

from 3 O'Clock Saturday, would you leave the studio, please?

0:20:490:20:52

So, Dennis, you're playing to win 3 O'Clock Saturday £13,000.

0:20:540:20:58

CJ, Daphne, Chris, Barry and Pat,

0:20:580:21:00

you're playing for something that money cannot buy,

0:21:000:21:03

the Eggheads' reputation.

0:21:030:21:05

Yes, CJ.

0:21:050:21:07

I'll ask each time three questions in turn.

0:21:070:21:09

The questions are all general knowledge

0:21:090:21:11

and you are allowed to confer.

0:21:110:21:13

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

0:21:130:21:17

And, Dennis, do you want to go first or second?

0:21:170:21:20

I'll go first, Dermot, please.

0:21:200:21:22

All right, good luck. Let's see what comes up.

0:21:250:21:28

First set of questions for you. Here you go, Dennis.

0:21:280:21:31

The word kowtow, meaning to kneel and touch one's head to the floor,

0:21:310:21:35

is derived from which historical culture?

0:21:350:21:38

I'm fairly certain that it's not Russian.

0:21:400:21:42

It could possibly be taken as Turkish

0:21:420:21:45

but I seem to remember this being a Chinese derivation,

0:21:450:21:51

so I'll go for Chinese, please.

0:21:510:21:54

To kowtow from Chinese culture. It's the right answer. Well done.

0:21:540:21:57

Eggheads, first question.

0:21:570:21:58

According to the popular saying, "Faint heart never won" what?

0:21:580:22:02

-Fair lady.

-Fair lady.

0:22:060:22:07

Not cool runnings.

0:22:070:22:10

We think that's fair lady.

0:22:100:22:12

Faint heart never won fair lady. It's correct.

0:22:120:22:15

And back to you, Dennis.

0:22:150:22:16

The character Judge Dredd made his debut in the second issue

0:22:160:22:21

of which comic book?

0:22:210:22:22

I seem to remember this from when I was younger.

0:22:250:22:27

I don't think it's Tiger.

0:22:270:22:30

It's either Marvel or 2000AD.

0:22:310:22:34

I always associate Marvel more with Superman and Spider-Man.

0:22:340:22:39

So on that basis, I'm going to go for 2000AD, please.

0:22:420:22:46

2000AD for Judge Dredd.

0:22:460:22:49

-Is he right, Eggheads?

-He is.

-He is.

0:22:490:22:52

Yes, well done, Dennis.

0:22:520:22:54

Two-one. Second question, Eggheads.

0:22:540:22:57

What is mixed with ginger beer and sometimes lime juice

0:22:570:23:01

to make the cocktail called a dark and stormy?

0:23:010:23:04

I don't but I would guess rum, with it being the darkest spirit.

0:23:060:23:10

Vodka. It can't be vodka because it's colourless.

0:23:100:23:14

Brandy's only a light brown.

0:23:150:23:16

Isn't brandy and ginger beer something else?

0:23:160:23:19

I think there's another name for brandy and ginger beer.

0:23:190:23:22

-I think you're right, actually.

-Pat?

-Rum's the darkest.

-I don't know.

0:23:220:23:26

-But your thought would be?

-The rum logic has something.

0:23:260:23:30

Erm, we don't think it's vodka because why would it be called a dark and story?

0:23:300:23:35

We think brandy and ginger beer is something else,

0:23:350:23:39

so we don't know but basically, rum's the darkest, so we'll try rum.

0:23:390:23:43

OK. It is rum, Eggheads.

0:23:430:23:46

A dark and stormy - ginger beer, sometimes lime juice.

0:23:460:23:49

So, all square. Third question, Dennis.

0:23:490:23:52

If you get this, it could win you the money.

0:23:520:23:55

The model Lara Stone who married David Walliams in May 2010

0:23:550:24:00

was born in which country?

0:24:000:24:01

I remember seeing pictures of her in the newspaper, I've seen that,

0:24:050:24:09

but where she actually comes from, I'm not certain.

0:24:090:24:12

I know she's very blonde, so on that basis I'm going to take a chance

0:24:140:24:19

with the Netherlands.

0:24:190:24:21

OK. Netherlands.

0:24:210:24:23

-On the basis that she's blonde.

-I'm afraid so.

0:24:230:24:26

But it's the right answer. Yes!

0:24:270:24:30

Well done. Well, you have three out of three.

0:24:310:24:34

Eggheads, a crucial one.

0:24:340:24:37

Red deal is the name for timber from the Scots pine

0:24:370:24:40

and white deal comes from which other tree?

0:24:400:24:43

Red deal is the name for timber from the Scots pine

0:24:460:24:49

and white deal comes from which other tree?

0:24:490:24:52

-One assumes it's the spruce.

-I can't imagine it's silver birch.

0:24:520:24:56

-It's not. It's Norway spruce.

-Yeah? I'm happy with that.

0:24:560:25:00

-It's the one that's grown for timber, Norway spruce.

-Yeah.

0:25:000:25:05

We're going to go with Norway spruce.

0:25:050:25:09

Norway spruce is correct, Eggheads. Saved your skins.

0:25:090:25:14

It's all square. We go to Sudden Death.

0:25:140:25:16

An achievement in itself on your own, there, Dennis.

0:25:160:25:19

Let's try and go the whole hog. £13,000.

0:25:190:25:22

Which word taken from the Italian for nephew

0:25:220:25:25

refers to the practice of specially favouring relatives

0:25:250:25:28

in matters of employment or promotion?

0:25:280:25:31

I don't know the actual Italian word for nephew

0:25:310:25:34

but I'm fairly sure that term is nepotism.

0:25:340:25:37

It's the right answer, Dennis. Well done.

0:25:370:25:39

Yep. Nepotism. Well done, Dennis.

0:25:390:25:43

Again, putting the pressure on the Eggheads.

0:25:430:25:46

So, the BRIC grouping of nations that are considered major emerging markets

0:25:460:25:51

includes Russia, India, China and which other country?

0:25:510:25:55

-Brazil.

-Brazil. Brazil, definitely.

0:25:550:25:59

-Brazil?

-Yeah.

0:25:590:26:01

Brazil.

0:26:010:26:02

Brazil is correct, yes. BRIC. Brazil, Russia, India, China.

0:26:030:26:07

All square again.

0:26:070:26:09

Well, Dennis, just keep this going.

0:26:090:26:11

See if you can crack those Eggheads.

0:26:110:26:12

In the commercial abbreviation E&OE that appears on invoices,

0:26:120:26:18

what does the letter O stand for?

0:26:180:26:22

I'm going to hazard a guess that it's part of the expenses side of an invoice

0:26:250:26:30

and it would be overhead or overheads.

0:26:300:26:33

OK. Overheads for the O in E&OE.

0:26:330:26:37

It's not the right answer, Dennis.

0:26:380:26:40

It is not overheads. Do you know, Eggheads?

0:26:400:26:43

-Omissions.

-Omissions.

-Errors and omissions excepted.

0:26:430:26:46

To show that the company has no responsibility for mistakes in the invoices if they're queried.

0:26:460:26:52

Well, the first chance for either team in the game to win it

0:26:520:26:56

and it goes to the Eggheads.

0:26:560:26:58

Who wrote the 1969 science fiction novel entitled The Andromeda Strain?

0:26:580:27:06

I think it was Michael Crichton. Do you think that?

0:27:060:27:09

-I think it was Michael Crichton.

-We both think Michael Crichton.

0:27:090:27:13

Yeah.

0:27:130:27:14

We think that was one of the most prolific science fiction writers,

0:27:140:27:19

Michael Crichton.

0:27:190:27:21

The writer of The Andromeda Strain was...

0:27:210:27:25

Michael Crichton. It's the right answer. You've won.

0:27:250:27:28

Bad luck, Dennis. That was close. That was close.

0:27:340:27:37

You made a real comeback.

0:27:370:27:39

And those head to heads, the quality's there in the team.

0:27:390:27:42

It's like one of those games of football where you're a good team but it goes against you.

0:27:420:27:48

We're used to David and Goliath at FC United, so...

0:27:480:27:51

Exactly. Thank you for playing, 3 O'Clock Saturday.

0:27:510:27:55

Very good to have you here but those Eggheads have done what comes naturally to them

0:27:550:27:59

and their winning streak continues. You won't go home with £13,000.

0:27:590:28:03

Which means the money rolls over to the next show.

0:28:030:28:06

Eggheads, congratulations. Who will beat you?

0:28:060:28:09

Join us next time to see if a new team of challengers have the brains

0:28:090:28:13

to defeat the Eggheads - £14,000 says they don't.

0:28:130:28:15

Until then, goodbye.
