These people are amongst the greatest quiz players in Britain.

0:00:060:00:09

Together they make up the Eggheads,

0:00:110:00:13

arguably the most formidable quiz team in the country.

0:00:130:00:16

The question is, can they be beaten?

0:00:190:00:21

Welcome to Eggheads,

0:00:250:00:26

the show where a team of five quiz Challengers pit their wits against

0:00:260:00:30

possibly the greatest quiz team Britain. They are the Eggheads.

0:00:300:00:34

Hoping to beat the might of the Eggheads today

0:00:340:00:36

are the Glasgow Alphas. This team are all members

0:00:360:00:39

of Glasgow's first inclusive rugby club,

0:00:390:00:42

who promote equality and diversity in team sports.

0:00:420:00:46

Let's meet them. Hello, my name is Munro, and I am a business student.

0:00:460:00:50

Hi, my name is Adam, and I'm a rugby coach.

0:00:500:00:52

Hi, I'm Matt, and I'm a hairdressing student.

0:00:520:00:55

Hi, my name's Jamie, and I work in hospitality.

0:00:550:00:58

Hi, my name's Barry, and I'm an aseptic pharmacy technician.

0:00:580:01:01

Munro and team, hello. Hello. Welcome.

0:01:010:01:04

So tell us, Munro, first of all, about the rugby club,

0:01:040:01:07

and what defines it. Basically, we create a comfortable environment

0:01:070:01:10

for anyone to come and try the sport. Just alleviating that bit of

0:01:100:01:13

stress, particularly that you get sometimes in the LGBT community

0:01:130:01:16

when it comes towards sport. And you play it yourself?

0:01:160:01:18

You all play? Yeah, we all play. OK, in different positions?

0:01:180:01:21

Yeah, yeah, definitely.

0:01:210:01:23

And which teams do you play?

0:01:230:01:26

We play mostly friendlies.

0:01:260:01:27

So there's a lot of inclusive LGBT teams around the country and around

0:01:270:01:31

the world. So we play a lot of them,

0:01:310:01:32

but we also play a lot of friendlies locally.

0:01:320:01:34

And hopefully, next season, we'll be joining a league, so we'll get

0:01:340:01:37

more regular matches. Really exciting. So, are you quizzers?

0:01:370:01:40

Do you quiz together? No, we haven't. I think we've all quizzed.

0:01:400:01:43

You quiz separately?

0:01:430:01:45

Yeah, we have. Does that mean you've had to patch together a battle plan,

0:01:450:01:48

rather like your rugby strategy?

0:01:480:01:50

Yes. Which means someone's the number eight, someone's the hooker,

0:01:500:01:53

someone's going to run with the ball when they get it?

0:01:530:01:55

Yeah, and someone just has to muck in when we need it as well.

0:01:550:01:58

Yeah. And someone's going to take down Kevin and make it as bruising

0:01:580:02:02

as possible. Yeah! All right, listen, good luck to you.

0:02:020:02:05

Great to see you all. Every day,

0:02:050:02:06

there's ?1,000 cash up for grabs for our Challengers.

0:02:060:02:09

However, if they fail to defeat the Eggheads, that money rolls over.

0:02:090:02:14

So, Glasgow Alphas, the Eggheads are doing rather well -

0:02:140:02:16

they've won the last nine. There's ?10,000 to play for.

0:02:160:02:21

Do you want to try? Definitely.

0:02:210:02:23

Good. The first head-to-head battle is on Film And TV.

0:02:230:02:27

You can choose between Judith, Kevin, Pat, Barry and Steve.

0:02:270:02:31

So who are we going for on Film And TV?

0:02:310:02:32

I think you had that bagsied, did you not? If you want.

0:02:320:02:35

Are you going to go for it? Yeah.

0:02:350:02:36

You in for...? No, I think we're going to hold us back a bit.

0:02:360:02:39

Yeah, OK, I'll go for it. Barry, OK. Against which Egghead?

0:02:390:02:43

Any one of the five.

0:02:430:02:45

Don't be scared. I think I'll go for Judith.

0:02:450:02:48

Everybody happy with that? Yeah.

0:02:480:02:51

Right, so, Barry from the Glasgow Alphas,

0:02:510:02:54

versus Egghead Alpha, Judith.

0:02:540:02:57

Is that too much of a build-up?

0:02:570:02:58

No, no. I could do with a build-up.

0:02:580:03:01

To ensure there's no conferring,

0:03:020:03:04

would you please take your positions in our legendary Question Room?

0:03:040:03:07

Barry, you're a pharmacy technician?

0:03:090:03:11

Yeah, that's right, Jeremy. And what does that entail?

0:03:110:03:13

I make up chemotherapies for people with cancer.

0:03:130:03:16

And also I make up parenteral nutrition bags for people that are

0:03:160:03:20

unconscious and can't eat. Wow, that's serious stuff.

0:03:200:03:23

Thanks. Do you find time to watch movies?

0:03:230:03:26

Yeah, usually when I'm not at training.

0:03:260:03:29

OK, good luck against Judith, Barry.

0:03:300:03:32

Would you like to go first or second?

0:03:320:03:34

I think I'll go second, Jeremy. Ladies first.

0:03:340:03:37

You ready for this, Judith? I am.

0:03:390:03:42

Aljaz Skorjanec, Oti Mabuse and Katya Jones

0:03:420:03:46

have all featured in which television show?

0:03:460:03:49

Well, I'm sure you know this too, Jeremy.

0:03:520:03:55

It's Strictly.

0:03:550:03:57

Strictly Come Dancing is quite right.

0:03:570:03:59

We've got to get you on that, Judith.

0:03:590:04:01

No! I'm stiff as a poker, I couldn't do it.

0:04:010:04:04

Oh, but even just to see you moving around.

0:04:040:04:06

OK, your question now, Barry.

0:04:080:04:09

Which of these songs won an Oscar for the 1984 film, The Woman In Red?

0:04:090:04:14

I'm not really sure, Jeremy, so I am just going to guess this one,

0:04:200:04:24

and I'll go with I Just Called To Say I Love You.

0:04:240:04:26

Yeah, it's a good guess, because Summer Nights was Grease,

0:04:260:04:28

and Bright Eyes was... Erm, was that Watership Down, or...

0:04:280:04:31

What was that, Judith? Watership Down.

0:04:310:04:33

Yeah, so, I Just Called To Say I Love You is quite right.

0:04:330:04:36

Judith, Anton Karas famously played the music to which 1949 film

0:04:360:04:42

on a zither?

0:04:420:04:43

Well, The Third Man - tremendously atmospheric film.

0:04:480:04:52

And music on the zither was very much a part of it,

0:04:520:04:55

so I think it's The Third Man.

0:04:550:04:57

The Third Man is right.

0:04:570:04:59

Barry, which British actor plays the husband and manager of

0:04:590:05:01

Meryl Streep's title character in the 2016 film

0:05:010:05:04

Florence Foster Jenkins?

0:05:040:05:06

I'm not really sure again, Jeremy.

0:05:110:05:13

Pretty sure it's not Stephen Fry or Hugh Grant,

0:05:130:05:16

so I'm going to go with Ray Winstone.

0:05:160:05:18

No, you've got it wrong, it's actually Hugh Grant.

0:05:180:05:20

OK. Hugh Grant was the answer.

0:05:200:05:23

Gives Judith a chance here.

0:05:230:05:25

Which actor wrote screenplays for both the 2015 film Sicario

0:05:250:05:29

and the 2016 film Hell Or High Water?

0:05:290:05:32

I have absolutely no idea.

0:05:370:05:39

I haven't seen either of the films,

0:05:390:05:42

or know anything about those names.

0:05:420:05:46

So, it's a guess.

0:05:470:05:49

Charlie Hunnam. Charlie Hunnam.

0:05:490:05:52

Eggheads? Taylor Sheridan.

0:05:520:05:53

Taylor Sheridan, says Kevin. Oh. Taylor Sheridan is the right answer.

0:05:530:05:57

Still, you do need to get this one right, Barry, to stay in.

0:05:570:06:00

Which silent film actor starred in the 1926 film The General?

0:06:000:06:05

So, it's 1926.

0:06:050:06:07

Well, it's bit before my time, Jeremy,

0:06:110:06:13

and the only silent actor I know is Charlie Chaplain,

0:06:130:06:15

so I'm going to go with Charlie Chaplain.

0:06:150:06:17

It's Buster Keaton. OK. Buster Keaton is the right answer.

0:06:170:06:20

Buster Keaton, he only did silent movies,

0:06:200:06:22

or did he move into spoken movies?

0:06:220:06:24

Well, he was in some later on,

0:06:240:06:26

but tended to be more cameos, really, than anything.

0:06:260:06:31

Barry, sorry, you've been knocked out by Judith.

0:06:310:06:33

Please return to us, and we'll play on.

0:06:330:06:35

So, the Glasgow Alphas have lost a brain from the final round.

0:06:370:06:40

The Eggheads are still all there, sitting...

0:06:400:06:42

Well, sitting pretty might be an exaggeration, but they're all there.

0:06:420:06:45

The next subject is Music.

0:06:450:06:47

So, Munro and team, who wants this?

0:06:470:06:49

It's... Matt, will you be going for this one, yeah?

0:06:490:06:51

Want me to take it, then? Yeah. Yeah, go for it.

0:06:510:06:54

Yeah, I'll take Music. OK, Matt, a hairdressing student.

0:06:540:06:57

Against which Egghead? Anyone but Judith.

0:06:570:06:59

I think, purely for the bright shirt angle,

0:07:000:07:02

I'm going to have to go against Barry.

0:07:020:07:04

Good stuff. So, Matt from the Glasgow Alphas,

0:07:040:07:06

taking on Barry from the Eggheads.

0:07:060:07:08

Please go to the Question Room now.

0:07:080:07:10

So, what's your ambition, Matt,

0:07:120:07:14

when you've finished doing the hairdressing studies?

0:07:140:07:16

I'm looking to eventually go and study to be a special effects

0:07:160:07:19

make-up artist. Oh, right, for movies and stuff?

0:07:190:07:22

Movie, films, doing all the sort of prosthetics and making people look

0:07:220:07:26

as horrible as they can.

0:07:260:07:28

Well, I suppose, these days the complexity of all that is immense,

0:07:280:07:32

isn't it? It is. There is a lot of different techniques

0:07:320:07:35

that I have to get myself to learn and get nailed down.

0:07:350:07:38

But once I've got those, I am pretty confident that I can get myself

0:07:380:07:41

a big enough name in the business.

0:07:410:07:43

Do you like watching the old movies?

0:07:430:07:45

Definitely, yeah. My favourite films are the ones with wobbly sets and

0:07:450:07:49

when the monsters are made of papier-mache,

0:07:490:07:52

but the actress is still screaming her head off.

0:07:520:07:54

Good! So, you're on Music, Matt, against Barry.

0:07:540:07:57

Would you like to go first or second? I think I'll...

0:07:570:08:01

I'll go second.

0:08:010:08:02

Barry, what is the fourth word in the national anthem of the

0:08:050:08:09

United Kingdom?

0:08:090:08:10

That's, "God save our gracious Queen." So it's gracious.

0:08:140:08:17

Yeah, gracious is right.

0:08:170:08:19

Back to you, Matt. The band Mumford And Sons became associated with the

0:08:190:08:22

reported revival of which genre of music?

0:08:220:08:25

Mumford and Sons, was it...

0:08:250:08:27

Erm, not my favourite band,

0:08:290:08:31

but I know definitely they have got that very folky feel to them,

0:08:310:08:35

so I'm going to say folk.

0:08:350:08:37

Yeah, completely, folk is right.

0:08:370:08:40

Barry, The Flaming Lips are a rock band that was formed in 1983

0:08:400:08:44

in which city?

0:08:440:08:46

Let me read it again - The Flaming Lips are a rock band that was formed

0:08:500:08:53

in 1983 in which city?

0:08:530:08:55

Goodness me. I have heard of the band.

0:08:560:08:59

And I'm tempted to say Salford, so I'll go for Salford.

0:09:010:09:04

Yeah, I'm not sure whether we're giving you options from different

0:09:050:09:08

countries or what. Is Kalgoorlie in Australia, or what?

0:09:080:09:11

That's Australia, yeah. OK, so there's a UK,

0:09:110:09:13

an Australia and an American option.

0:09:130:09:15

So I suppose we're just asking which country is the band from?

0:09:150:09:18

And they're American. Ah. Oklahoma City is the answer.

0:09:180:09:21

All right. So you have a chance now to take the lead, Matt.

0:09:210:09:25

Which band's first live album was called Live At Leeds?

0:09:250:09:29

Ooh, erm...

0:09:330:09:35

Live at Leeds...

0:09:370:09:38

It's probably going to be a stab in the dark with this one.

0:09:400:09:44

I'll go with Oasis.

0:09:440:09:45

No, before that - The Who.

0:09:450:09:47

All right. I've never heard that album, I bet it's brilliant.

0:09:470:09:50

It is indeed. I've heard it a number of times.

0:09:500:09:52

Really? Barry, your third question.

0:09:520:09:55

Josephine Barstow was created a dame in 1995,

0:09:550:09:59

following her success in which capacity?

0:09:590:10:01

I've not heard of her as a ballerina.

0:10:060:10:09

And I've not heard of her as a composer.

0:10:090:10:12

I think she might have been an opera soprano.

0:10:120:10:14

Opera soprano is correct, Barry. Well done.

0:10:140:10:17

So, he's got two, you've got one, you need this one, Matt.

0:10:170:10:21

Here it is. Giovanni Roncalli are the middle names of which singer?

0:10:210:10:27

Giovanni Roncalli.

0:10:270:10:29

Oh...

0:10:330:10:35

I honestly can't really think of this.

0:10:350:10:37

I'd have to eliminate Michael Ball,

0:10:370:10:39

because they sound very Italian names.

0:10:390:10:42

I'm going to take it wild stab in the dark, I'll go Bryn Terfel.

0:10:420:10:45

Bryn Terfel, no. It's Alfie Boe, I'm afraid to say.

0:10:450:10:51

Is that...? Eggheads, let me just check, is that because he's Italian?

0:10:510:10:54

He's from Lancashire, I think. He's from Lancashire?

0:10:540:10:56

Is Giovanni Roncalli a person?

0:10:560:10:58

First name/surname, are those two names taken after one other person?

0:10:580:11:02

Giovanni Roncalli was the real name of, I think, of Pope John XXIII.

0:11:020:11:07

Oh, that's interesting. And Alfie Boe, in terms of his age,

0:11:070:11:11

that could be the case that possibly he was named after...

0:11:110:11:15

I don't know.

0:11:150:11:17

And I'm sorry, Matt, with that, you've been knocked out by Barry,

0:11:170:11:20

who will be in the final round. Well done, Barry.

0:11:200:11:22

Bit of divine assistance there, Barry.

0:11:220:11:24

Yeah, had to be after that Flaming Lips answer!

0:11:240:11:27

Come back to us, both, we'll play round three.

0:11:270:11:29

The Glasgow Alphas have lost two brains from the final round.

0:11:320:11:35

The Eggheads have not lost any so far,

0:11:350:11:37

and the next subject for you is Food Drink.

0:11:370:11:40

Now, I know we have a hospitality person here.

0:11:400:11:42

Or maybe it's not you, Jamie, is it? Yeah.

0:11:420:11:45

It is you. I was... Are you still wanting it?

0:11:450:11:48

It would be between you and Adam.

0:11:480:11:51

Would you be with, like...? It could be anything.

0:11:510:11:54

It could be anything, though. If we're thinking for the final...

0:11:540:11:57

Because, Adam, you were the one that was better at food and drink

0:11:570:12:00

when we practised.

0:12:000:12:01

I'll do it, but then, if Arts Books comes up...

0:12:010:12:04

I was thinking that. So we'll go with Jamie then?

0:12:040:12:07

Yeah, go with Jamie. Sure? Yep.

0:12:070:12:09

Who would you like to take on, guys?

0:12:090:12:12

You can have Steve, Pat or Kevin.

0:12:120:12:14

I think Kevin. Shall we go for that, then?

0:12:140:12:16

Yeah, just go for Kevin.

0:12:160:12:18

We'll go for Kevin. Brilliant stuff.

0:12:180:12:19

Jamie from the Glasgow Alphas,

0:12:190:12:21

raises the stakes by taking on Kevin from the Eggheads.

0:12:210:12:24

To ensure there's no conferring, please, take your positions.

0:12:240:12:27

So, Jamie, you're in hospitality,

0:12:290:12:31

which means you handle a lot of food and drink?

0:12:310:12:33

Yes, I do. Good stuff.

0:12:330:12:34

And what kind of work do you do?

0:12:340:12:36

So, mainly waiting tables, I do a bit of bar work well.

0:12:360:12:41

So I should hopefully get some cocktail questions, if they come up.

0:12:410:12:44

Cocktails come up a lot, yeah.

0:12:440:12:46

OK. And do people say to you, "What's in this, what's in that?"

0:12:460:12:48

And you have to explain how the chicken's done, that kind of thing?

0:12:480:12:51

Pretty much, yeah, or go find the big book of cocktails,

0:12:510:12:54

if I don't know myself.

0:12:540:12:55

Hopefully I've spent enough time studying that book.

0:12:550:12:58

Food Drink, Jamie, would you like to go first or second?

0:12:580:13:01

I'll go first, please.

0:13:010:13:02

Good luck. Which of these French wines is a style of sparkling wine,

0:13:060:13:10

reputedly older than champagne?

0:13:100:13:12

OK. Doesn't help that we don't serve this

0:13:190:13:22

where I'm working at the moment.

0:13:220:13:24

So what was the question?

0:13:260:13:27

Which is a sparkling wine that predates champagne?

0:13:270:13:29

Exactly, sparkling wine, reputedly older than champagne?

0:13:290:13:33

Erm... Don't really have any kind of way of working out

0:13:330:13:37

which would be the oldest. I'll just have to take a guess,

0:13:370:13:42

and go with Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

0:13:420:13:44

It's Blanquette de Limoux.

0:13:440:13:46

No problem.

0:13:460:13:48

OK, your question, Kevin. Traditionally, arborio is

0:13:480:13:52

the most common rice variety used in which dish?

0:13:520:13:55

Well, arborio is, I believe, an Italian variety of rice,

0:14:000:14:05

and the Italian dish there is risotto.

0:14:050:14:09

Risotto is correct. Well done.

0:14:090:14:12

Back to you, Jamie. Which of these cuts of lamb is taken from the neck

0:14:120:14:16

of the animal?

0:14:160:14:17

Which of these cuts of lamb is taken from the neck of the animal?

0:14:190:14:23

The only one I've really heard of is lamb shank.

0:14:250:14:30

Where it comes from, I couldn't tell you.

0:14:320:14:34

Scrag end, I would assume would be one or t'other end of the animal.

0:14:340:14:39

I guess, on what little reasoning I have, I'll go with chump.

0:14:410:14:45

Chump. Let's go through this with Kevin.

0:14:450:14:47

What is shank, first of all, Kevin?

0:14:470:14:49

The leg. The leg.

0:14:490:14:50

What is chump then, is this right?

0:14:500:14:52

I was trying to place it, I think it's scrag end.

0:14:520:14:55

It's not chump, it's not shank, it's scrag end, Jamie,

0:14:560:14:59

I'm afraid. Gives Kevin a chance to take the round.

0:14:590:15:02

Which of these plant varieties has been named as the world's

0:15:030:15:07

hottest type of chilli pepper?

0:15:070:15:09

As far as I recall, Arran pilot is a variety of potato.

0:15:140:15:18

Blue Danube, I'm not too sure, but the one I recognise there

0:15:180:15:21

as being a particularly fearsome type of chilli pepper

0:15:210:15:25

is a Carolina Reaper. So that's my answer.

0:15:250:15:28

You're absolutely right, it is the Carolina Reaper, and by the way,

0:15:280:15:31

the pilot and the Danube are both potatoes.

0:15:310:15:33

BOTH potatoes, OK. Yeah, so, Reaper is the chilli, and I'm sorry,

0:15:330:15:37

the chilli has ejected you, Jamie.

0:15:370:15:40

Bit too spicy for me, I suppose.

0:15:400:15:41

Yeah, got a little bit burned there.

0:15:410:15:43

But don't worry, Kevin is a very good quizzer,

0:15:430:15:45

many have been this way and many have fallen.

0:15:450:15:47

Please return to us, and we'll play one more round before the final.

0:15:470:15:50

We were struggling a little bit with animal parts there,

0:15:530:15:55

and the lamb. I have drawn one, OK?

0:15:550:15:58

A lamb? Yes, a lamb, Judith, actually, before you laugh at me.

0:15:580:16:02

I'm sorry!

0:16:020:16:04

This is just so you guys could see.

0:16:040:16:07

It's a sad-looking lamb. The neck area there,

0:16:070:16:10

that's the scrag end there, round the neck.

0:16:100:16:13

And then if you put a belt around it, that would be the chump.

0:16:130:16:16

A saddle on the belt, that would be the loin position.

0:16:160:16:19

And the shank, I should say, is the leg, just down there.

0:16:190:16:21

Can you see? That's all perfectly clear.

0:16:210:16:23

Perfectly. We will know that next time.

0:16:230:16:25

All right, that's settled.

0:16:250:16:27

As it stands, the Glasgow Alphas have lost three brains from the

0:16:270:16:30

final round. The Eggheads looking a little bit too confident,

0:16:300:16:33

and a little bit too cocky. And this is the moment, guys -

0:16:330:16:35

take one of them down, rattle them, and then they fall apart

0:16:350:16:38

in the final, and you win ?10,000. The next subject is Geography.

0:16:380:16:42

OK, Munro, who would you like to throw in on this?

0:16:420:16:45

I think this is going to have to be me,

0:16:450:16:46

by the look of Adam's face there.

0:16:460:16:48

OK. Not my forte. I will try my best.

0:16:480:16:51

OK, Munro. You can take on either Steve or Pat.

0:16:510:16:53

Both very wily quizzers.

0:16:530:16:55

I think I'm going to go for Steve. Our newest Egghead.

0:16:570:16:59

Munro from the Glasgow Alphas taking on Steve from the Eggheads

0:16:590:17:03

on Geography. Let's hope you can find your way to the Question Room.

0:17:030:17:06

On Geography, Munro, would you like to go first or second?

0:17:080:17:11

I'd like to go second, please.

0:17:110:17:12

So, against Steve.

0:17:150:17:17

And your first question, therefore, Egghead.

0:17:170:17:19

Which two colours appear on the national flag of Japan?

0:17:190:17:22

It's white and red, Jeremy. White and red is the right answer.

0:17:260:17:30

Munro, which of these cities is a British port on the North Sea?

0:17:300:17:34

Well, being Scottish, it would be a bit ridiculous

0:17:370:17:39

if I got this one wrong. It's Aberdeen.

0:17:390:17:41

Aberdeen is correct.

0:17:410:17:44

Steve, Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains,

0:17:440:17:50

is located in which country?

0:17:500:17:52

The answer I was thinking before the answers has come up, fortunately,

0:17:550:17:58

so I will say Morocco.

0:17:580:17:59

Morocco is correct.

0:17:590:18:01

OK, Munro, your question.

0:18:010:18:03

If the shape of Italy is described as a boot,

0:18:030:18:06

which of these cities is located on its heel?

0:18:060:18:09

Well, it's not Venice, because Venice is in the north.

0:18:130:18:16

I'm not sure where Genoa or Taranto is.

0:18:160:18:20

But if...

0:18:220:18:23

I think Taranto's speaking to me, so I'll just go for that.

0:18:230:18:26

It's speaking to you? Yeah.

0:18:260:18:28

What's it saying? Hopefully, that it's right.

0:18:280:18:31

It is right, well done. Taranto is correct.

0:18:310:18:34

Steve, which of these cities is the principal seaport of Yemen?

0:18:340:18:37

Yeah. Aden, Jeremy.

0:18:420:18:44

Aden is right.

0:18:440:18:46

Man of few words. As long as they're right.

0:18:460:18:49

Yep, OK. Now we go to you, Munro.

0:18:490:18:52

He's made quick work of that.

0:18:520:18:53

Get this right, and we go to Sudden Death.

0:18:530:18:56

Sierra Leone is bordered by Guinea and which other country?

0:18:560:19:00

I don't think it's Burkina Faso,

0:19:050:19:08

because I'm pretty sure that's over to the east of Africa,

0:19:080:19:12

whereas Sierra Leone, I think, is slightly more west.

0:19:120:19:16

So it's going to be between the other two.

0:19:160:19:19

I'm just going to have to guess Liberia.

0:19:190:19:22

Is he right, Eggheads?

0:19:220:19:23

Yes. Absolutely right, well done, Liberia it is.

0:19:230:19:26

So, three questions each you've had, and we go to Sudden Death.

0:19:260:19:30

It gets a bit harder - I don't give you alternatives.

0:19:300:19:32

And Steve, here's your question.

0:19:320:19:34

Lake Nipigon, which is 1,872 square miles in area,

0:19:340:19:40

and about 80 miles north-east of the city of Thunder Bay,

0:19:400:19:44

is in which country? Let me read it again - Lake Nipigon,

0:19:440:19:48

which is 1,872 square miles in area and about 80 miles north-east of

0:19:480:19:55

the city of Thunder Bay, is in which country?

0:19:550:19:58

Right. I could quite easily come unstuck here.

0:19:580:20:01

But because it's quite a big lake,

0:20:010:20:04

I think it's got to be quite a big country.

0:20:040:20:06

So I'll say Canada.

0:20:060:20:07

Canada's correct.

0:20:070:20:10

You been there, Barry? No, not yet.

0:20:100:20:12

Wow, really? BARRY LAUGHS

0:20:120:20:16

If you get this wrong, Munro,

0:20:160:20:18

there's going to be just one person in the final.

0:20:180:20:20

Between the town of Monmouth and the Severn Estuary,

0:20:200:20:23

the border between Wales and England is mainly formed by which river?

0:20:230:20:29

Could you repeat the question, please?

0:20:290:20:31

Between the town of Monmouth and the Severn Estuary,

0:20:310:20:34

the border between Wales and England is mainly formed by which river?

0:20:340:20:40

You need to get this right. I'm not sure.

0:20:400:20:42

I can't think of any rivers that are in Wales.

0:20:420:20:45

My mum might be a bit annoyed - she's half Welsh.

0:20:450:20:48

I am not sure at all. I'm going to have to...

0:20:480:20:51

Because there's a river that I know...

0:20:510:20:53

I think it's the longest river in England?

0:20:530:20:57

But I can't remember the name, so I'd guess that. But...

0:20:570:21:00

I'm just going to say the Severn.

0:21:010:21:03

Not the Severn. Have you ever heard of the big book festival at Hay?

0:21:030:21:07

No, I haven't, no.

0:21:070:21:08

OK, it's a town called Hay-on-Wye.

0:21:080:21:10

Ross-on-Wye. The river is Wye.

0:21:100:21:14

OK. W-Y-E.

0:21:140:21:15

Wye. Sorry, Munro. Knocked out by Steve, our Egghead.

0:21:150:21:19

If you return to us, we'll see what happens next.

0:21:190:21:22

So, this is what we've been playing towards, it is time for

0:21:240:21:27

our final round, which, as always, is General Knowledge.

0:21:270:21:29

But I'm afraid that those of you who lost your head-to-heads won't be

0:21:290:21:32

allowed to take part in this round. So, it's Munro, Matt, Jamie

0:21:320:21:36

and Barry, from the Glasgow Alphas, I'm sorry,

0:21:360:21:39

but would you please now leave the studio?

0:21:390:21:41

So we have the rugby coach playing now, Adam, is that right?

0:21:430:21:45

Yep. OK, good luck, you're playing to win the Glasgow Alphas ?10,000,

0:21:450:21:50

which I gather would go to the club? Yeah, yeah.

0:21:500:21:52

It would probably go towards things like equipment or

0:21:520:21:55

training facilities or extra coaches.

0:21:550:21:58

All right, brilliant. Steve, Barry, Pat, Kevin and Judith,

0:21:580:22:01

you're playing for something that money really can't buy,

0:22:010:22:04

which is the Eggheads' reputation.

0:22:040:22:06

As usual, I will ask each team three questions in turn.

0:22:060:22:08

This time, they're all General Knowledge,

0:22:080:22:11

and you are allowed to confer.

0:22:110:22:12

I'm sorry that doesn't help you, Adam, as you're on your own.

0:22:120:22:15

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

0:22:150:22:19

And would you like to go first or second?

0:22:190:22:21

I'd like to go second, please.

0:22:210:22:23

And here we go. Eggheads, the model Jelena Hadid, born in California

0:22:270:22:32

in 1995, is better known by what name?

0:22:320:22:34

Gigi. Gigi, then. There is a Gigi Hadid.

0:22:400:22:43

How do you spell the first name, there, Jeremy?

0:22:430:22:45

J-E-L-E-N-A.

0:22:450:22:47

Jelena. There is a sister.

0:22:470:22:49

There is a sister, yeah.

0:22:490:22:51

But she's not either of those, is she?

0:22:510:22:55

I think it's Gigi.

0:22:550:22:57

It must be Gigi.

0:22:570:23:00

Happy with that? Yeah. We think that's Gigi.

0:23:000:23:03

Gigi is correct.

0:23:030:23:06

To you, Adam. Which singer had UK hit singles with All Cried Out

0:23:060:23:10

and That Old Devil Called Love in the 1980s?

0:23:100:23:12

I'm probably not going to go with Adam Ant.

0:23:170:23:21

I'm not his greatest fan, but I know the music was a little

0:23:210:23:25

bit punk-rockier than what the titles of the songs sound, anyways.

0:23:250:23:29

I'm probably going to go with Annie Lennox.

0:23:300:23:33

It's Alison Moyet, I'm sorry.

0:23:330:23:35

Eggheads, in 1984, he said, "It's not a fashion parade,

0:23:360:23:40

"it's not a gentleman's club, it's not a bankers' institute -

0:23:400:23:42

"it's a place where the people are represented," after complains

0:23:420:23:46

about his clothing?

0:23:460:23:48

'84? In 1984?

0:23:520:23:55

It's got to be Jeremy Corbyn.

0:23:550:23:56

Corbyn could have had complaints about his clothing.

0:23:560:23:59

Well, David Cameron wasn't in...

0:23:590:24:01

Well, are they referring to Parliament?

0:24:010:24:03

Could it be something like Bullingdon?

0:24:030:24:05

I know what you mean, yeah.

0:24:060:24:07

I would imagine it's referring to Parliament.

0:24:070:24:09

Shall we have it again? In 1984, who said, "It's not a fashion parade,

0:24:090:24:14

"it's not a gentleman's club, it's not a bankers' institute -

0:24:140:24:16

"it's a place where the people are represented,"

0:24:160:24:18

after complaints about his clothing?

0:24:180:24:20

Sounds promising for Jeremy Corbyn, doesn't it? I've got a feeling

0:24:200:24:24

it's Jeremy Corbyn. It's got to be Jeremy Corbyn.

0:24:240:24:26

Makes sense. I assume it's referring to Parliament,

0:24:260:24:28

because here's been there since...

0:24:280:24:30

Yes, exactly.

0:24:300:24:32

And in 1984, I mean, Cameron...

0:24:320:24:34

Very young. Nick Clegg about the same.

0:24:360:24:40

We don't know it, but we'll have to go with Corbyn. Yeah, must be.

0:24:400:24:44

If it's not, it should be. Yeah. We don't know this, Jeremy,

0:24:440:24:47

but we are going to go for Jeremy Corbyn.

0:24:470:24:50

Jeremy Corbyn's quite right.

0:24:500:24:51

He was new in Parliament and, in those days,

0:24:510:24:54

it was even more fusty-dusty than it is now, and people said,

0:24:540:24:57

"He can't dress like that."

0:24:570:24:58

Around the same sort of time Michael Foot got into a lot of trouble?

0:24:580:25:01

Yes, that's right, with the Cenotaph.

0:25:010:25:03

Donkey jacket. OK. Your question, Adam.

0:25:030:25:07

They've got two - you must get this right to keep the contest alive.

0:25:070:25:13

Which team won the FA Cup five times in the first seven seasons

0:25:130:25:18

in which it was held?

0:25:180:25:19

Could you repeat the question again?

0:25:240:25:25

Which team won the FA Cup five times in the first seven seasons

0:25:250:25:30

in which it was held?

0:25:300:25:32

I'm veering away from Oxford University.

0:25:320:25:35

I'm not sure what it was like when the FA Cup was beginning,

0:25:350:25:38

but when I played University rugby,

0:25:380:25:40

usually they have separate leagues for the university teams.

0:25:400:25:43

Football really isn't my forte either.

0:25:450:25:49

I'm kind of veering towards Wanderers.

0:25:490:25:52

Is that your answer? Yes.

0:25:520:25:54

Wanderers. This is to stay in the contest.

0:25:540:25:56

Eggheads, do you know? Yep, I think it's Wanderers.

0:25:560:25:59

Wanderers is right. Well done. Still alive.

0:25:590:26:01

But the Eggheads can take the whole contest with this one question.

0:26:020:26:06

In the 1990s, Eggheads, Jo Salter became the first woman

0:26:060:26:11

in the UK's Armed Forces to do what, operationally?

0:26:110:26:15

Did she captain a ship? I thought she was a pilot.

0:26:210:26:23

Oh, that's it, then. Right.

0:26:230:26:25

In the '90s?

0:26:250:26:28

The captaincy of the ship, the warship, came later, didn't it?

0:26:280:26:33

I think she was an RAF pilot. Yeah.

0:26:330:26:37

I'm not 100% certain, but I think she was. I've just got memories

0:26:370:26:41

of somebody captaining a ship, but that must be more recently.

0:26:410:26:44

There was quite a bit of publicity about it at the time, I think.

0:26:450:26:49

Right, yeah. I may be wrong, I may be wrong,

0:26:490:26:52

but I don't think it's anything to do with the SAS.

0:26:520:26:55

No. Yeah, I think she's a...

0:26:550:26:58

It's quite a long time ago. The '90s.

0:26:580:27:02

No objections to that. Jet, fly a jet.

0:27:020:27:06

We'll go with fast jet. Mm.

0:27:060:27:09

We're going to go with fly fast jets.

0:27:090:27:12

If you've got this right,

0:27:120:27:13

you've got three out of three in the final round.

0:27:130:27:15

And you have been pretty unstoppable today, I must say.

0:27:150:27:20

The contest will be over.

0:27:200:27:22

Kevin said the key word, pilot, yes,

0:27:220:27:25

she did become the first woman to fly fast jets.

0:27:250:27:28

We say congratulations, Eggheads, you have won.

0:27:280:27:30

Did you know that one, Adam? I actually had no clue either.

0:27:360:27:38

It was quite tricky that one, because it guessably could have been

0:27:380:27:41

any of them. But thank you for playing, good to meet the team.

0:27:410:27:44

Thank you. Hope you've enjoyed it.

0:27:440:27:46
