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

0:00:230:00:27

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

0:00:270:00:32

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

0:00:320:00:36

Challenging our quiz champions today are...

0:00:360:00:39

the Hopviners from Lancashire.

0:00:390:00:42

They regularly quiz together at the Hop Vine pub in Burscough. Let's meet them.

0:00:420:00:48

Hi. I'm Mike. I'm 36 and I'm a builder's labourer.

0:00:480:00:52

Hi. I'm Gemma. I'm 25 and I'm a journalist.

0:00:520:00:55

Hi. I'm Ahmed. I'm 55 and I'm an IT user support analyst.

0:00:550:01:00

Hi. I'm Ray. I'm 38 years old and I'm a contracts administrator.

0:01:000:01:04

Hi. I'm Phil. I'm 44 years old and I'm a university lecturer.

0:01:040:01:09

-Welcome to you, Hopviners. Is that the name of the quiz team when you're playing at the Hop Vine?

-No.

0:01:090:01:15

We generally take a collective of who's turned up on the day and make up the name as we go along.

0:01:150:01:22

-The Hop Vine is the name of the pub.

-Sure, and how competitive is it?

0:01:220:01:26

-Oh, extremely.

-Very.

-Extremely competitive. We sometimes win it.

0:01:260:01:31

-Which is quite...

-Only when I'm there, though!

0:01:310:01:34

That's what I like to hear, Gemma.

0:01:340:01:38

What subjects do you enjoy most? You've got a mix on the team.

0:01:380:01:42

-I enjoy the sport questions.

-GEMMA: Music, entertainment, TV.

0:01:420:01:47

-AHMED: Science and history.

-Geography.

0:01:470:01:50

-OK. And Phil?

-General knowledge, science.

0:01:500:01:54

Got all the talents here. Let's put them to the test.

0:01:540:01:57

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

0:01:570:02:01

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

0:02:010:02:05

Hopviners, the Eggheads have won the last 20 games.

0:02:050:02:08

£21,000 says you can't beat the Eggheads.

0:02:080:02:13

Our first subject - kind of know who's playing this - Arts & Books.

0:02:130:02:17

Who wants to play this?

0:02:170:02:20

Who did we decide?

0:02:200:02:22

-Well, I suppose.

-GEMMA: Are you gonna go for it, Ray?

0:02:220:02:26

-I will do.

-You wanted to be first.

0:02:260:02:29

-Yeah.

-Who would you like to play?

0:02:290:02:32

-I would say either Judith or Chris.

-Yeah.

0:02:320:02:37

Um, I'll go for...Judith.

0:02:370:02:40

Judith, decision is made. It's Ray and Judith playing Arts & Books.

0:02:400:02:46

Could I ask you both, please, to go to the question room to make sure you can't confer?

0:02:460:02:51

Ray, you're a big Liverpool fan. You follow them over Europe!

0:02:510:02:55

-Yes.

-To the great European cities. Do you take in the museums and galleries when you're there?

0:02:550:03:00

-Um, I generally...

-Or the pubs?

-Well, the pubs of course!

0:03:000:03:05

It's the churches I like to see.

0:03:050:03:07

I just love looking around the churches.

0:03:070:03:10

So I've been to the Sagrada in Barcelona and places like that.

0:03:100:03:16

I'm glad to hear that, because there's the stereotype that I played into.

0:03:160:03:21

The football fans go abroad and all they do is jump into a lot of beer.

0:03:210:03:26

It's an opportunity to look around cities you wouldn't normally go to.

0:03:260:03:30

-It's a bit of a waste if you spend all day in a pub.

-Got to spend some time there if you win!

0:03:300:03:36

-Oh, yes.

-OK, Ray.

0:03:360:03:39

-Would you like to go first or second?

-I'll go first please.

0:03:390:03:43

Good luck, Ray.

0:03:430:03:45

Arts & Books, first question.

0:03:450:03:48

The painter Henri Matisse was born in which country?

0:03:480:03:52

The painter Henri Matisse was born in which country?

0:03:540:03:59

Um... I'm pretty certain he was born in France.

0:03:590:04:03

So I'm going to go for France.

0:04:030:04:05

Matisse, French, is the right answer. Good start.

0:04:050:04:09

Judith.

0:04:090:04:11

According to Thomas Gray's Ode On A Distant Prospect Of Eton College,

0:04:110:04:16

"Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be..." what?

0:04:160:04:19

Well, I think it must be wise, cos it's the opposite.

0:04:220:04:26

Yeah, "'tis folly to be wise".

0:04:260:04:29

Understand that now, Eggheads?

0:04:290:04:32

-DERMOT CHUCKLES

-It's all square.

0:04:320:04:36

Ray, in the Leonardo sketch commonly known as the Vitruvian Man,

0:04:360:04:41

that displays the proportions of the human figure, how many arms are shown?

0:04:410:04:46

I'm pretty certain that it's three per side.

0:04:490:04:52

He's got two arms held out. I'm certain he's got one above.

0:04:520:04:56

And one below. One straight out, one above, one below. So...

0:04:560:05:01

-I'm going to go for six.

-Six. Vitruvian Man.

0:05:010:05:05

-It's four!

-Oh, right.

-Do you know what?

0:05:050:05:10

If I didn't have the right answer, I'd agree with you. It's only four.

0:05:100:05:15

Vitruvian Man.

0:05:150:05:17

Judith, whose Ode On Indolence was written in 1819,

0:05:170:05:23

but was published posthumously in 1848?

0:05:230:05:26

I don't think Tennyson was posthumous in 1848. I'm not sure.

0:05:280:05:34

-I have a feeling it must be Keats.

-Keats.

0:05:340:05:38

Who died shortly after 1819, I think.

0:05:380:05:42

You've been getting a lot of odes! Second ode in a row.

0:05:420:05:45

-Second correct answer.

-Can we have a bit of variety?

0:05:450:05:50

You're doing well on them. Keats gives you two.

0:05:500:05:54

You need this, Ray. Whose 1757 work entitled

0:05:540:05:57

A Philosophical Enquiry Into The Origin Of Our Ideas Of The Sublime And Beautiful

0:05:570:06:04

put forward a theory that divided the sublime from mere beauty?

0:06:040:06:08

I've got no idea.

0:06:110:06:14

I think Samuel Johnson... was around later than that.

0:06:140:06:19

I thought he'd be around in the 1800s but...

0:06:190:06:22

I'm not so sure about that either.

0:06:220:06:25

This is a complete guess.

0:06:250:06:27

I'm going to go for Thomas Paine.

0:06:270:06:29

-It's not, though, Ray.

-Right.

-Do you know, Judith, of the other two?

0:06:290:06:34

Edmund Burke's a political writer.

0:06:340:06:37

I thought it was Samuel Johnson but I'm not sure because of the dates.

0:06:370:06:42

-He was a philosopher as well, Burke, and it was he that wrote it.

-Oh.

0:06:420:06:47

But it doesn't matter. You've won the round anyway.

0:06:470:06:51

You got those two correct.

0:06:510:06:53

Two incorrect from Ray means you won't be in the final round.

0:06:530:06:56

Please come back and join your teams.

0:06:560:06:58

After the first round, the Eggheads have the upper hand.

0:06:580:07:03

The Hopviners have lost one brain. Our second round today is Geography. Who'd like to play this one?

0:07:030:07:09

It can't be you, Ray.

0:07:090:07:11

Oh, no!

0:07:110:07:13

-We decided, didn't we, before.

-Yeah. Ray WAS going to do Geography.

0:07:130:07:19

But we decided if Geography came up after, Ahmed was going to do it.

0:07:190:07:24

Yeah. Good luck, Dad.

0:07:240:07:26

You can play anyone, apart from Judith.

0:07:260:07:29

I'd take my pick from either Chris or Daphne.

0:07:290:07:35

-Would you?

-Or Barry.

0:07:350:07:38

LAUGHTER

0:07:380:07:40

So, no Pat then!

0:07:400:07:42

-That's narrowed it down(!)

-I'll play against Daphne, I think.

0:07:420:07:48

So it's going to be Ahmed and Daphne playing Geography.

0:07:480:07:52

Into the question room, please.

0:07:520:07:54

Ahmed, interest in geography? Travelled quite a lot, have you?

0:07:540:07:59

Not really, Dermot. It's my third favourite subject.

0:07:590:08:04

Stepping into the breach! You have to adapt these game plans.

0:08:040:08:08

It's just the way the questions came out.

0:08:080:08:10

Well, you have adapted and taken this on.

0:08:100:08:14

Do you want to start or let her begin?

0:08:140:08:17

I'll go first, please, Dermot.

0:08:170:08:19

The best of luck. Which coastal feature occurs

0:08:220:08:25

where air and water are forced through a vertical shaft leading from a sea cave to the surface?

0:08:250:08:32

Well, I don't think it's a pothole, because that's where cavers go down.

0:08:350:08:41

A sinkhole, that sounds more like a river goes down a hole.

0:08:410:08:46

I'm going to go for blow-hole.

0:08:460:08:50

Blow-hole. Yeah, does what it says on the tin! It's the right answer.

0:08:500:08:54

Daphne, Haverfordwest is in which part of the United Kingdom?

0:08:570:09:01

I think it's Wales, Dermot.

0:09:030:09:06

-You had to think a minute there.

-Yes. I did.

0:09:060:09:10

It is in Wales. Correct.

0:09:100:09:12

The Australian territory, the Cocos Islands, is in which ocean?

0:09:140:09:18

I know it's definitely not the Atlantic.

0:09:200:09:23

At least, I think it's not the Atlantic.

0:09:230:09:26

It sounds like it could be the Pacific.

0:09:260:09:30

The Indian's a bit further away.

0:09:300:09:33

-I'm going to go for the Pacific.

-Pacific?

-Yes.

0:09:330:09:38

It's certainly surrounding Australia but it is the Indian.

0:09:380:09:44

The Indian Ocean, the Cocos Islands. Second question, Daphne.

0:09:440:09:49

The Pantanal region, mainly located in Brazil,

0:09:490:09:51

is often described as the world's largest area of which land type?

0:09:510:09:56

I've not heard of it, so it's going to be a complete guess.

0:10:000:10:05

I will go for, um...

0:10:080:10:10

-Wetland.

-Wetland. Why?

0:10:100:10:13

Well, I don't think it's coniferous forest, but I've got no idea.

0:10:130:10:19

-It's either that or grassland.

-Yeah.

0:10:190:10:22

-Wetland is the right answer.

-Oh!

0:10:220:10:26

Amazonian based, is it?

0:10:260:10:28

It drains into the Amazon.

0:10:280:10:30

It's a huge swamp, hundreds of miles in any direction.

0:10:300:10:35

Ahmed, you need to get this.

0:10:350:10:37

Which mountain that forms the forefinger

0:10:370:10:40

of the Range of the Awful Hand, is the highest point in Scotland's Southern Uplands?

0:10:400:10:45

Not really sure about this, Dermot. It's going to be a complete guess.

0:10:490:10:54

I've not heard of any of them.

0:10:540:10:57

I'm going to go for...

0:10:580:11:00

-Black Hag.

-Black Hag.

0:11:000:11:03

The Range of the Awful Hand, what a fantastic name!

0:11:030:11:07

In the Southern Uplands. It is Merrick.

0:11:070:11:11

Merrick, not Black Hag. More or less the same pattern...

0:11:110:11:16

It IS the same pattern as the last round. We end it there. You won't be in the final round.

0:11:160:11:22

Would you both please come back and join your teams?

0:11:220:11:25

The Hopviners have lost two brains from the final round.

0:11:250:11:29

The Eggheads are all there, but early days!

0:11:290:11:32

Plenty more quizzing to come. Our next subject is Film & Television.

0:11:320:11:36

Who'd like to play this?

0:11:360:11:39

-Gemma, Mike or Phil?

-AHMED: We know who's doing this.

0:11:390:11:41

-I think it's going to be me.

-OK, Gemma.

-Yeah.

0:11:410:11:45

Daphne and Judith have played. One of the boys - Pat, Barry or Chris.

0:11:450:11:50

The boys! Ha ha!

0:11:500:11:52

I'd be tempted to go for Barry.

0:11:520:11:56

-I would think so.

-OK, then.

0:11:560:11:58

You are the team captain.

0:11:580:12:01

-The decision's yours!

-I will play against Barry, please.

0:12:010:12:05

It's going to be Gemma and Barry contesting Film & Television.

0:12:050:12:09

Could I ask you both to go to the question room?

0:12:090:12:12

Gemma, you're a busy journalist. Do you watch much film and television?

0:12:120:12:17

-Yes. Quite a lot.

-Good.

0:12:170:12:20

My DVD collection's extensive.

0:12:200:12:22

-So, yes.

-And what favourite films?

0:12:220:12:26

-There's just too many.

-What type?

0:12:260:12:30

I love fast-paced ones you can really get your teeth into.

0:12:300:12:34

The Bourne films, I really enjoy them. Matt Damon's quite a hottie.

0:12:360:12:41

We had a few questions about him in the last few Eggheads.

0:12:410:12:46

-See if any more come up. Would you like to go first or second?

-I'm going to go first please.

0:12:460:12:52

Good luck, Gemma. The TV drama series Playing The Field,

0:12:550:12:59

first shown in 1998, concerned a women's team in which sport?

0:12:590:13:03

I vaguely remember watching this.

0:13:050:13:09

But, er...

0:13:090:13:12

I know the answer is football.

0:13:120:13:15

It was basically about women pushing the barriers and playing football.

0:13:150:13:20

-My answer's football.

-It's the correct answer. Well done.

0:13:200:13:24

Barry, Fay Ripley played

0:13:240:13:26

a character called Jenny Gifford in which TV series?

0:13:260:13:30

I really loved this series, especially Fay Ripley's performance.

0:13:320:13:36

-She was in Cold Feet.

-Cold Feet. Must get her autograph for you.

0:13:360:13:41

Ooh, yes please!

0:13:410:13:44

That'd warm your feet up! Cold Feet is right. Yeah.

0:13:440:13:49

Gemma, who presented the TV series Adventures In Architecture and Around The World In 80 Treasures?

0:13:490:13:56

I watch Kevin McCloud on Grand Designs.

0:14:000:14:05

Um... And it's architecture and treasures.

0:14:050:14:11

I don't think it's David Dimbleby.

0:14:110:14:16

I'm going to guess at Kevin McCloud.

0:14:160:14:20

Kevin McCloud, architecture and 80 treasures.

0:14:200:14:23

All well-qualified to do such shows, but it's Dan Cruickshank.

0:14:230:14:27

Dan Cruickshank on Adventures In Architecture.

0:14:270:14:32

Well, see how Barry does with his second one.

0:14:320:14:35

Who directed the 1955 film Rebel Without A Cause?

0:14:350:14:39

Ah, that was Marlon Brando.

0:14:420:14:44

Had one of the most wonderful lines in screen history.

0:14:440:14:49

"What are you rebelling against?" He says, "What have you got?"

0:14:490:14:53

I think it was Fred Zinnemann.

0:14:530:14:56

Completely wrong, Barry!

0:14:560:14:58

-Just wrong from start to finish in everything you said.

-Everything?

0:14:580:15:04

It's Nicholas Ray and the Eggheads will tell me and I'll tell you...

0:15:040:15:09

James Dean!

0:15:090:15:12

-..was in Rebel Without A Cause.

-Oh, gosh!

0:15:120:15:15

-I got completely the wrong film!

-Yeah. Wrong film, wrong actor.

0:15:150:15:19

-On The Waterfront he was thinking of?

-No, the Wild One.

0:15:190:15:24

Of course!

0:15:240:15:26

Rebel Without A Cause. James Dean.

0:15:260:15:28

Directed by Nicholas Ray. Great news for you, Gemma.

0:15:280:15:32

Your third question.

0:15:320:15:35

Who starred as a US marine ship-wrecked with a nun played by Deborah Karr in the 1957 film

0:15:350:15:41

Heaven Knows, Mr Allison?

0:15:410:15:43

-I think that's WAY before my time!

-You might have the DVD!

0:15:470:15:52

Oh, no! Now I wish I'd watched those black and white films with my mum!

0:15:520:15:58

John Wayne, he was in westerns, so I'm going to exclude him.

0:16:000:16:07

I'm going to go for... Burt Lancaster.

0:16:100:16:14

Burt Lancaster and Deborah Karr in Heaven Knows, Mr Allison?

0:16:140:16:18

-You're right about John Wayne, but it is Robert Mitchum.

-Oh, no!

0:16:180:16:23

You CAN win the round...

0:16:250:16:27

I should deduct points, by the way, for the last answer.

0:16:270:16:31

I can't, so you have the chance to win the round with this.

0:16:310:16:36

Which TV character was created by the writer and producer GF Newman?

0:16:360:16:40

I don't think it was Lovejoy.

0:16:430:16:46

-GF Newman. I think it was Judge John Deed.

-Judge John Deed.

0:16:460:16:51

Deals in justice, and INjustice has been done. You've won.

0:16:510:16:56

Bad luck, Gemma. It's not fair.

0:16:560:16:58

I'm afraid it's the rules.

0:16:580:17:00

You're meant to be an Egghead! You won't be in the final round, Gemma.

0:17:000:17:05

Please come back and join your teams.

0:17:050:17:08

Well, three Hopviners gone. No Eggheads after that round.

0:17:080:17:13

Can the Hopviners stop a clean sweep here from the Eggheads with our next category?

0:17:130:17:19

Our last head-to-head is History. Mike or Phil?

0:17:190:17:23

History. What are you like?

0:17:230:17:25

No good. I'll give it a go but I'm poor.

0:17:250:17:29

Have you decided, Phil? Yeah. Go on. I'll do it.

0:17:310:17:35

-Give it a go, Phil?

-Yeah.

-You've got Chris or Pat to play.

0:17:350:17:39

-I'll take Chris.

-Chris, OK.

0:17:390:17:42

It's Phil and Chris, then, taking on History. Into the question room, please.

0:17:420:17:48

-Phil, do you want to go first or second?

-I'll go first, Dermot.

0:17:480:17:53

It's History, first question.

0:17:560:17:58

D-Day, in which Allied forces invaded northern France by means of beach landings in Normandy,

0:17:580:18:04

occurred on which date in June 1944?

0:18:040:18:07

Um, right, not really sure about this one at all.

0:18:110:18:15

Simply because it was the 6th month, I'll go for the 6th.

0:18:180:18:23

I see. OK. 6th of the 6th. It's the right answer.

0:18:230:18:26

Not sure if they just wanted the 6th of the 6th.

0:18:260:18:31

It was all to do with moons and tides and weather conditions.

0:18:310:18:35

Foul weather. They were delayed by weeks.

0:18:350:18:38

-So it would have been May?

-Yeah.

0:18:380:18:40

6th June 1944,

0:18:400:18:43

the Normandy landings identified by Phil.

0:18:430:18:46

Which city in northern England did the Romans make the capital

0:18:460:18:49

of a new province of Lower Britain in the third century?

0:18:490:18:53

Neither Liverpool nor Bradford existed in any recognisable form.

0:18:550:19:00

It was Eboracum, York.

0:19:000:19:02

Right, OK. York is the correct answer. Well done.

0:19:020:19:06

Old Noll was a nickname of which historical figure?

0:19:080:19:12

Old Noll, N-O-L-L, was a nickname of which historical figure?

0:19:160:19:20

Old Noll.

0:19:200:19:22

Right, um...

0:19:220:19:25

Don't think it's Bonnie Prince Charlie. Um...

0:19:250:19:30

Old Noll.

0:19:300:19:33

Don't think it's Cromwell. I'll go for Thomas Wolsey.

0:19:330:19:37

OK. Wolsey.

0:19:370:19:38

It's not. Old Noll is...

0:19:400:19:42

-Chris?

-Oliver Cromwell.

0:19:420:19:45

Oliver Cromwell. Not your question, though.

0:19:450:19:49

Where did British forces under Sir Eyre Coote

0:19:490:19:52

defeat the French under the Comte de Lally at the Battle of Wandiwash in 1760?

0:19:520:19:58

Hm.

0:20:000:20:02

There were wars in North America then against the French over Canada.

0:20:030:20:09

It wasn't Ireland. The French were trying to muscle in on India.

0:20:110:20:15

-It's India.

-India.

0:20:150:20:17

What great names. Sir Eyre Coote!

0:20:170:20:21

The Comte de Lally. The Battle of Wandiwash in India.

0:20:210:20:24

It's the right answer. You have two.

0:20:240:20:27

Phil, you need to get this.

0:20:270:20:29

In which role did Hanna Reitsch become famous in Nazi Germany?

0:20:290:20:34

In which role did Hanna Reitsch become famous in Nazi Germany?

0:20:370:20:42

It's Hanna R-E-I-T-S-C-H. Hanna Reitsch.

0:20:420:20:47

Don't think she's a pilot. I'll discount that one.

0:20:470:20:52

Photographer or athlete? Hanna Reitsch?

0:20:520:20:55

Nazi Germany?

0:20:550:20:58

They liked their athletes, that Aryan supremacy.

0:20:580:21:01

But I'm going to plump for a photographer.

0:21:010:21:06

Photographer, Hanna Reitsch. Chris?

0:21:060:21:08

No, she was a very good pilot.

0:21:080:21:11

She test flew a V-1 pilotless bomb!

0:21:110:21:14

Originally, the V-1s didn't have a guidance system, they had a pilot.

0:21:140:21:18

They lost two or three, all former jockeys.

0:21:180:21:21

She volunteered to fly one and found out what the problem was.

0:21:210:21:25

She landed it safely and allowed them to develop the V-1 doodlebug.

0:21:250:21:30

She was a pilot.

0:21:300:21:32

She also flew in and out of Berlin in the last days of the Reich.

0:21:320:21:36

-Right.

-Pilot.

-A definitive answer there from Chris, Phil.

0:21:360:21:42

It is pilot, obviously, the answer, not photographer.

0:21:420:21:47

You won't be in the final round. Please come and join your teams.

0:21:470:21:51

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

0:21:510:21:57

I'm afraid those who lost your head-to-heads

0:21:570:22:00

won't be allowed to take part.

0:22:000:22:02

Gemma, Ahmed, Ray and Phil from the Hopviners, would you leave the studio, please?

0:22:020:22:08

Mike, you're playing to win the Hopviners £21,000.

0:22:080:22:11

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

0:22:110:22:15

the Eggheads' reputation.

0:22:150:22:18

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

0:22:180:22:23

You are allowed to confer.

0:22:230:22:25

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

0:22:250:22:29

-Would you like to go first or second?

-Um...

0:22:290:22:32

Considering how badly the rest of the team's done going first, I'll go second.

0:22:320:22:38

-Your team hasn't had the luck. Maybe you're storing it all up.

-Could be.

-For where it counts.

0:22:410:22:47

Eggheads, first question. Mike's put you in.

0:22:470:22:50

Kersey is a type of what?

0:22:500:22:53

K-E-R-S-E-Y.

0:22:550:22:57

Kersey is a type of what?

0:22:570:23:00

That's a cloth, Dermot.

0:23:000:23:03

-What kind of cloth?

-I'll have to defer to Daphne.

0:23:030:23:06

-It's sort of woollen.

-Woollen?

-Yes.

0:23:060:23:09

Kersey is a type of cloth. It's the right answer. Mike...

0:23:090:23:14

Which X Factor singer reached the top of the UK singles chart in April 2010 with Once?

0:23:140:23:20

Which X Factor singer reached the top of the UK singles chart

0:23:240:23:27

in April 2010 with Once?

0:23:270:23:30

This is the sort of time that I wish that Gemma had got through.

0:23:300:23:34

-I don't watch X Factor.

-Ah! I was going to ask you that!

0:23:340:23:38

-Gemma with her TV watching would.

-Yes.

0:23:380:23:42

I try and stay at the golf club so it's finished when I get home.

0:23:420:23:46

Stacey Solomon had a very high-pitched squeaky voice.

0:23:460:23:50

Can't imagine that she's got to Number One.

0:23:500:23:53

Don't know who Lucie Jones is. I'm going for Diana Vickers.

0:23:530:23:59

Diana Vickers for Once.

0:23:590:24:02

Gemma's very happy. It's the right answer. Well done.

0:24:020:24:07

Didn't watch the X Factor

0:24:070:24:09

so that was a tough one for Mike.

0:24:090:24:11

Steve McNamara was named as the new coach of which England national team in April 2010?

0:24:110:24:17

Steve McNamara was named as the new coach

0:24:200:24:23

of which England national team in April 2010?

0:24:230:24:27

-Oh, I don't know!

-DAPHNE: I'd go for rugby league.

0:24:280:24:33

-I think there has been some turnover in the managers.

-Yes.

0:24:330:24:37

Um...

0:24:370:24:39

Yeah, in the last 12 months they have had a change of manager

0:24:390:24:44

-in the rugby league.

-It's only a guess.

0:24:440:24:48

I don't think it'd be swimming. It's too technical.

0:24:480:24:51

Rugby league has a much higher profile than hockey.

0:24:510:24:55

-JUDITH: Absolutely no idea.

-We're reduced to a hunch, a guess.

0:24:550:25:00

We don't know, Dermot. We're going to try rugby league.

0:25:000:25:04

-On a hunch?

-There's been a change in manager in the last 12 months.

0:25:040:25:09

It's not really solid evidence.

0:25:090:25:11

-Rugby league.

-Certainly isn't. Steve McNamara...

0:25:110:25:15

became the new coach of the England...

0:25:150:25:18

rugby league side in April 2010. It's the right answer.

0:25:180:25:22

Combined Eggheads working it out.

0:25:220:25:24

Bit of hunch. Bit of inkling. Bit of guess. There you go. Five of them, that's the problem.

0:25:240:25:30

Dealing with it successfully in that first question was Mike.

0:25:300:25:34

He's got to do it with his second question.

0:25:340:25:38

What French word is given to a collar or ring on a candlestick or chandelier,

0:25:380:25:43

used to catch wax drippings?

0:25:430:25:45

What French word is given to a collar

0:25:490:25:51

or ring on a candlestick or chandelier,

0:25:510:25:54

used to catch wax drippings?

0:25:540:25:56

I wasn't very good at French.

0:25:560:25:59

I don't really have a clue.

0:26:010:26:04

Let me try and work out if any of those words mean anything to me.

0:26:040:26:09

Sometimes I get a bit of an inkling,

0:26:090:26:11

but I've got nothing here at the moment, so...

0:26:110:26:14

I'm going to take a complete guess.

0:26:160:26:20

And go for... I still don't know which one I'm going to guess at!

0:26:220:26:27

-Passoire.

-Passoire.

0:26:290:26:32

Catching wax and drippings, stuff that passes by. I don't know.

0:26:320:26:36

It's not the right answer, Mike. Do you know, Eggheads?

0:26:360:26:40

-It might be bobeche.

-It is bobeche.

0:26:400:26:42

A bobeche is the collar on the candlestick.

0:26:420:26:47

Good effort, but not the right answer. So, Eggheads,

0:26:470:26:52

you win the game if you get this.

0:26:520:26:54

Which Cornish town is famous for its traditional celebration Obby Oss Day held at the beginning of May?

0:26:540:27:01

Which Cornish town is famous for its traditional celebration Obby Oss Day

0:27:030:27:09

held at the beginning of May?

0:27:090:27:11

We think that's Padstow, Dermot.

0:27:110:27:13

Definitely Padstow. I used to live quite near Padstow.

0:27:130:27:18

What do they get up to? Obby Oss? Hobby horse?

0:27:180:27:21

They dress up in this extraordinary black get-up, a big circle,

0:27:210:27:25

with skirts, and the man inside it dances round the town.

0:27:250:27:29

-They have a horse involved?

-That is the horse, the obby oss.

0:27:290:27:34

CHRIS: Weird black oilskin creation, disc thing.

0:27:340:27:38

Great pointed hat. < Yeah.

0:27:380:27:41

Sounds, er, great fun.

0:27:410:27:43

At the beginning of May, it's held in Padstow.

0:27:430:27:46

Eggheads, you've won.

0:27:460:27:48

Mike, it really was bad luck. You never really got going. It's the way the questions fell.

0:27:540:28:00

Good players in those head-to-heads and they got one or two dodgy old questions and bang!

0:28:000:28:06

The wheels came well and truly off!

0:28:060:28:09

-I hope you enjoyed the experience.

-Fantastic.

0:28:090:28:11

-Good to see the pros in action, up close and personal.

-Excellent.

0:28:110:28:15

Thank you very much indeed.

0:28:150:28:18

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

0:28:180:28:22

You won't be going home with £21,000. The money rolls over to the next show.

0:28:220:28:27

Eggheads, congratulations. Who will beat you?

0:28:270:28:30

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

0:28:300:28:35

£22,000 says they don't. Until then, goodbye.
