These five people are amongst the greatest quiz players in Britain.

0:00:040:00:08

Together they make up the Eggheads,

0:00:100:00:12

arguably the most formidable quiz team in the country.

0:00:120:00:15

The question is - can they be beaten?

0:00:170:00:20

Welcome to Eggheads, 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.

0:00:270:00:30

You might just recognise them

0:00:300:00:32

as they are Goliaths in the world of TV quiz shows.

0:00:320:00:35

They are the Eggheads.

0:00:350:00:37

Taking on the awesome might of our quiz Goliaths are Act One.

0:00:370:00:40

The team know one another

0:00:400:00:43

through Cardiff University's drama group.

0:00:430:00:46

they've won their local pub quiz so many times,

0:00:460:00:49

I'm told, they get booed by the opposition.

0:00:490:00:51

Let's meet them.

0:00:510:00:53

Hi, I'm Rhys. I'm 22, and training to be a croupier.

0:00:530:00:56

Hi, I'm Frances. I'm 22, and a children's holiday monitor.

0:00:560:01:00

Hi, I'm Pete. I'm 27, and I'm a transition administrator.

0:01:000:01:03

Hi, I'm Kim. I'm 27, and a corporate services manager.

0:01:030:01:07

Hi, I'm Peter, I'm 28. I'm an engineering student.

0:01:070:01:10

So, Rhys, you go in the pub to play, and everyone starts catcalling.

0:01:100:01:14

Yes, we did have to change our name on the eighth occasion, I think.

0:01:140:01:19

There were several "boos" going out through the pub,

0:01:190:01:22

when our name was called out.

0:01:220:01:24

-So acting brings you together...

-Correct, yes.

0:01:240:01:27

..but I know that you are a trainee croupier.

0:01:270:01:29

-That's right.

-Meaning what?

-Well, basically,

0:01:290:01:32

dealing in a casino, roulette, blackjack, stud card poker, etc.

0:01:320:01:36

So you've got the gambler as your captain, team,

0:01:360:01:39

-is that a good idea?

-ALL: Possibly not!

-Let's see!

0:01:390:01:44

Every day there's a thousand pounds worth of cash up for grabs

0:01:440:01:47

for our challengers. But if they fail to defeat the Eggheads

0:01:470:01:50

the prize money rolls over to the next show.

0:01:500:01:52

So, Act One, the Eggheads have won the last seven games,

0:01:520:01:56

which means £8,000

0:01:560:01:58

says you can't beat the Eggheads!

0:01:580:02:01

First head-to-head battle is on the subject of Arts & Books.

0:02:010:02:05

Challengers, which one of you wants to take this?

0:02:050:02:08

THEY CONFER

0:02:080:02:11

-Fran, do you want this?

-Yeah, I'll take that one.

0:02:110:02:14

Fran thinks she's got the skills.

0:02:140:02:16

Fran, and which Egghead looks shaky on the literary side?

0:02:160:02:20

CJ!

0:02:200:02:22

We'd like CJ, please.

0:02:220:02:23

OK. So it's Fran from Act One versus CJ from the Eggheads.

0:02:230:02:27

No conferring, so please take your positions in the Question Room.

0:02:270:02:30

-So Fran, good luck here.

-Thank you.

0:02:320:02:35

You've chosen well - CJ's had some bad moments on Arts & Books.

0:02:350:02:39

And, I have to ask, what's the tiara for?

0:02:390:02:42

It's for my goddaughter because I'm her fairy godmother.

0:02:420:02:46

If you tip your head down slightly we can all see it. Aah!

0:02:460:02:49

-What's her name?

-Lulu.

0:02:490:02:51

OK, this is for Lulu if you win.

0:02:510:02:54

Fran, your choice, the first set of questions or the second set?

0:02:540:02:57

I'll go first, please.

0:02:570:02:58

Fran, which words follow "The Cat"

0:03:020:03:04

in the title of a famous children's book by Dr Seuss? Is it...

0:03:040:03:09

It is, of course, In The Hat.

0:03:140:03:16

The Cat In The Hat is the correct answer. Well done!

0:03:160:03:19

CJ, which term means to cover an art canvas

0:03:220:03:25

with a very watery, and thin, coat of colour?

0:03:250:03:28

You mentioned I was having a bit of a hard time on Arts & Books

0:03:320:03:35

but you never actually mentioned the result of those rounds, Jeremy.

0:03:350:03:39

Well, the result was that you needed about ten hours' counselling.

0:03:390:03:43

-And I won!

-And you won. OK, you won, that's true.

0:03:430:03:46

In that case, let's get this off to a winning start,

0:03:460:03:50

and hopefully get the right answer with "wash".

0:03:500:03:52

Well done, wash is correct, CJ.

0:03:520:03:55

Don't worry, Frances, he's just putting it on.

0:03:560:03:59

The 1995 novel, American Tabloid, about the assassination of JFK,

0:03:590:04:05

is by which author?

0:04:050:04:07

I don't recognise any of the names

0:04:110:04:14

at all to even, kind of, work it out.

0:04:140:04:20

Stab in the dark...James Ellroy?

0:04:200:04:23

Stab in the dark is quite right,

0:04:230:04:24

James Ellroy is correct. Well done!

0:04:240:04:28

CJ, Adonais is an elegy written on the death of which poet?

0:04:310:04:34

You're not going to give me a date.

0:04:380:04:41

Thank you so much(!)

0:04:410:04:42

You love poetry, we know that(!)

0:04:420:04:45

Absolutely no idea.

0:04:450:04:47

I can't stand poetry, I know nothing about it.

0:04:490:04:52

I don't read it, don't like it, bores me to tears.

0:04:520:04:55

Byron!

0:05:000:05:01

No! Keats.

0:05:010:05:02

Over to you, Fran.

0:05:040:05:07

Which artist painted the Feast In The House Of Levi,

0:05:070:05:10

which was castigated by the Catholic Church for including

0:05:100:05:14

buffoons, drunkards, dwarves, Germans and similar vulgarities.

0:05:140:05:18

Of all, El Greco jumps out at me.

0:05:250:05:27

Not sure if that's cos I've heard of it,

0:05:270:05:29

or it's the right answer, but I'm going to go with El Greco.

0:05:290:05:33

El Greco is your answer. Eggheads, is she right?

0:05:330:05:37

-ALL: No, Veronese!

-Veronese.

0:05:370:05:40

So, sorry Fran, wrong answer.

0:05:400:05:42

CJ, you have a chance to come back.

0:05:420:05:44

But you do need this question, or you are out.

0:05:440:05:47

The Recruiting Officer,

0:05:470:05:50

and the Beaux Strategem, are works by which writer?

0:05:500:05:54

I don't know the Beaux' Stratagem,

0:06:030:06:05

but The Recruiting Officer I think is Farquhar,

0:06:050:06:08

but let me have a moment.

0:06:080:06:09

Yeah, I think The Recruiting Officer is George Farquhar.

0:06:120:06:15

-Is that your answer?

-Yes.

0:06:150:06:17

And it's correct, CJ, well done. Good play, you came back.

0:06:170:06:20

So neck and neck after multiple choice.

0:06:200:06:22

We now make it slightly harder, we go to Sudden Death.

0:06:220:06:26

Fran, who wrote Under The Volcano, a semi-autobiographical novel

0:06:260:06:32

about an alcoholic British ex-consul in Mexico?

0:06:320:06:38

It's another one I've heard of and I can't think of it,

0:06:400:06:42

my mind's gone completely blank.

0:06:420:06:44

No, sorry, I've got to pass.

0:06:480:06:50

OK, Eggheads?

0:06:500:06:51

-ALL: Malcolm Lowry.

-Malcolm Lowry's right.

0:06:510:06:54

Malcolm Lowry. So, to you, CJ.

0:06:540:06:57

The Chrysalids, and The Midwich Cuckoos,

0:06:570:07:00

are books by which British writer, CJ?

0:07:000:07:02

His most famous was Day Of The Triffids,

0:07:020:07:05

-it's John Wyndham.

-You're right.

0:07:050:07:08

Well done!

0:07:080:07:09

After that you do take the round.

0:07:090:07:12

Fran, you were beaten by our Egghead,

0:07:120:07:14

so you can't help your team in the final round.

0:07:140:07:17

Bad luck. Please now both come back,

0:07:170:07:19

and take your positions here.

0:07:190:07:20

As it stands, the challengers

0:07:220:07:24

have lost one brain from the final round.

0:07:240:07:26

The Eggheads have lost no brains.

0:07:260:07:28

The next subject is Geography.

0:07:280:07:30

Which is the geographer

0:07:300:07:32

among the actors?

0:07:320:07:34

-Peter, in the green.

-Peter in green, OK.

0:07:340:07:37

Engineering student.

0:07:370:07:39

Which is the non-geographer, do you think, among the Eggheads?

0:07:390:07:43

I think Judith, yes.

0:07:430:07:45

Judith then, please.

0:07:450:07:47

That's a lovely change.

0:07:470:07:49

-Nice, you don't get that often, do you?

-No.

0:07:490:07:51

So, Peter from Act One versus Judith from the Eggheads.

0:07:510:07:54

To ensure no conferring, please go to the Question Room.

0:07:540:07:57

Peter, tell me if you want the first, or second, set of questions.

0:07:590:08:03

The first set, please.

0:08:030:08:04

Here's your first question.

0:08:070:08:09

Dublin Bay, on which the city of Dublin stands,

0:08:090:08:12

is located on which body of water?

0:08:120:08:15

The Irish Sea.

0:08:190:08:21

Wow! That was so sudden!

0:08:210:08:23

You don't want more time to think?

0:08:230:08:25

I'm pretty sure.

0:08:250:08:27

That's good, yeah, you're right.

0:08:270:08:29

Correct, Irish Sea. Judith,

0:08:290:08:32

which English tourist attraction is visible from the A303?

0:08:320:08:36

Well, the A303 goes westwards through Wiltshire, etc,

0:08:420:08:47

so it is Stonehenge.

0:08:470:08:48

Stonehenge is correct, yeah.

0:08:480:08:50

-I drive past it all the time.

-Yes, me too.

0:08:500:08:52

All right, Peter, a sink- or swallowhole,

0:08:520:08:55

is a characteristic feature of what kind of landscape?

0:08:550:08:59

It's where the water erodes the rock

0:09:020:09:05

around the cracks in...limestone.

0:09:050:09:09

You are right. Well done!

0:09:090:09:12

The engineering mind at work there!

0:09:130:09:15

Serving you well.

0:09:150:09:17

Judith, the Rastro Flea Market is located in which city?

0:09:170:09:22

I've never been to any of those cities.

0:09:250:09:27

Never been to Madrid, or Prague, or Oslo.

0:09:270:09:30

Rastro.

0:09:300:09:32

It doesn't...could be Spanish, because it has an "o" at the end?

0:09:320:09:37

Where's likely to have a flea market? I'm going to go for Madrid.

0:09:390:09:42

It is Madrid, well done.

0:09:420:09:43

Phew!

0:09:430:09:45

Two points each, tight game.

0:09:450:09:47

Peter, Muscat is the capital of which country?

0:09:470:09:51

I think...

0:09:560:09:58

..I think it's Oman.

0:10:010:10:04

Why do you think that?

0:10:040:10:05

I'm hoping it's emerging from the depths of my memory,

0:10:050:10:10

but I'm not very confident!

0:10:100:10:12

Team mates, has he got it right?

0:10:120:10:14

ALL: It is Oman.

0:10:140:10:15

It is Oman. Three out of three!

0:10:150:10:18

Lucky guess!

0:10:180:10:19

Judith, if you get this wrong

0:10:190:10:21

then you are, very sadly, a goner.

0:10:210:10:25

In which country is Lake Disappointment located?

0:10:250:10:28

I'm moving away from Ireland.

0:10:320:10:35

There aren't a lot of lakes in Australia, I don't think,

0:10:370:10:40

because it is notably dry.

0:10:400:10:42

I think, maybe, Canada.

0:10:420:10:45

-That's your answer?

-Yes.

0:10:470:10:49

It's Australia, Canada is incorrect.

0:10:490:10:53

Peter, you have taken on one of the Eggheads and emerged triumphant!

0:10:530:10:57

Well done.

0:10:570:10:59

Act One, how about that?

0:10:590:11:01

You can come and play in today's final round.

0:11:010:11:03

Both of you please come back and rejoin your teams.

0:11:030:11:06

The Eggheads and the challengers

0:11:080:11:10

have each lost one brain from the final round.

0:11:100:11:13

Next subject is Film & Television.

0:11:130:11:15

How do you feel about that? I think probably good!

0:11:150:11:18

You sound really uncertain, Rhys.

0:11:180:11:21

We've got a decision...who to play?

0:11:210:11:23

It's Kim, Pete or Rhys.

0:11:230:11:24

We're going to go with Kim.

0:11:240:11:26

-Kim, corporate services manager.

-That's me!

0:11:260:11:29

And which of this lot?

0:11:290:11:31

-I'll take on Daphne.

-OK.

0:11:310:11:33

So, Daphne, from the Eggheads,

0:11:330:11:36

versus Kim from Act One.

0:11:360:11:39

No conferring, so please take your positions in the Question Room.

0:11:390:11:42

Kim, would you like the first or second set of questions?

0:11:440:11:47

I think I'll follow the others and go first, please.

0:11:470:11:50

Kim, long-running TV series, Z Cars,

0:11:530:11:56

centred on characters in what type of job?

0:11:560:11:58

I'm glad it's that question rather than details about characters.

0:12:020:12:07

It's police officers.

0:12:070:12:10

Quite right, it is.

0:12:100:12:11

Your first answer correct. Well done.

0:12:110:12:14

Daphne, "wax on, wax off," is a phrase from which film of the 1980s?

0:12:140:12:18

I don't know.

0:12:220:12:23

You've seen that look of "I don't know."

0:12:240:12:30

Um, Flashdance?

0:12:300:12:34

Wrong, Daphne.

0:12:340:12:36

It's The Karate Kid.

0:12:360:12:39

-Is it? Well!

-Back to you, Kim.

0:12:390:12:41

Fran, you were doing

0:12:420:12:44

an illustration of The Karate Kid?

0:12:440:12:45

Yeah! Wax on, wax off!

0:12:450:12:47

What is "wax on, wax off"?

0:12:470:12:49

It's waxing a car!

0:12:490:12:51

Waxing a car, so that later in the film The Karate Kid

0:12:510:12:54

can use it to karate chop some baddies.

0:12:540:12:57

Right, OK, here's your question.

0:12:590:13:01

Which animated film featured the voices of Ellen DeGeneres as Dory,

0:13:010:13:06

and Geoffrey Rush as a pelican called Nigel?

0:13:060:13:09

All fantastic films, but they provided the voices for Finding Nemo.

0:13:130:13:19

Finding Nemo is absolutely right.

0:13:190:13:21

Two points to you.

0:13:210:13:23

Daphne, next question.

0:13:250:13:26

Who is the presenter of the TV programme, Through The Keyhole?

0:13:260:13:30

I saw it absolutely ages ago and it was David Frost then

0:13:350:13:40

so I hope he hasn't moved!

0:13:400:13:43

He hasn't moved, it's still him. Well done!

0:13:430:13:46

Third question to you now, Kim.

0:13:480:13:50

Get this right and you've taken the round.

0:13:500:13:52

Which comedian starred as the bookshop owner, Bernard,

0:13:520:13:55

in the TV comedy, Black Books?

0:13:550:13:58

I used to live with a guy in the university

0:14:030:14:07

who was addicted to Black Books, and I think it's Dylan Moran.

0:14:070:14:12

Superb play from Act One, you're right!

0:14:130:14:16

Three questions right, and so, Daphne,

0:14:160:14:19

you can't come back, so I won't even give you your third question.

0:14:190:14:22

Well done, Kim, you took on an Egghead and you emerged triumphant.

0:14:220:14:26

That's great news for Act One, as you can join us in the final round.

0:14:260:14:30

So please, both of you, return to the studio and join your teams.

0:14:300:14:33

The challengers have lost one brain from the final round,

0:14:350:14:38

the Eggheads have lost two brains.

0:14:380:14:41

Our last subject is Sport.

0:14:410:14:42

Which challenger wants Sport?

0:14:420:14:44

Have you got a sport person there?

0:14:440:14:46

-We should probably go with Rhys here.

-We're glad it's come up.

0:14:460:14:51

I think I'm going to have to take on Sport.

0:14:510:14:54

Rhys, you can have Chris or Kevin.

0:14:540:14:56

I think I'm going to take on Chris.

0:14:560:15:01

You fool!

0:15:020:15:04

He's in a bit of a mood about sport these days!

0:15:060:15:09

Rhys from Act One versus Chris from the Eggheads.

0:15:090:15:12

Great contest, this.

0:15:120:15:14

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

0:15:140:15:17

Rhys, you can choose the first or second set.

0:15:190:15:22

First has served us well so far, so I'll continue that trend.

0:15:220:15:26

Here we go. Rhys, footballer Kevin Phillips scored

0:15:300:15:33

115 times in 209 league appearances over six years with which club?

0:15:330:15:39

I'm pretty sure on this one.

0:15:420:15:44

It's Sunderland.

0:15:440:15:47

You are right!

0:15:470:15:49

Chris, here's your first question.

0:15:490:15:51

Who announced his retirement from rowing in 1996 saying that

0:15:510:15:56

anyone who saw him near a boat had his permission to shoot him?

0:15:560:16:00

Pinsent and Redgrave both went on

0:16:060:16:08

to win gold in 2000 at the Olympics,

0:16:080:16:10

so that wouldn't be them.

0:16:100:16:12

It must have been James Cracknell.

0:16:120:16:14

Ohhh!

0:16:140:16:16

That strangulated cry you heard was CJ,

0:16:160:16:20

because it's Steve Redgrave.

0:16:200:16:23

Presumably changed his mind did he, CJ?

0:16:230:16:25

He did!

0:16:250:16:27

OK.

0:16:270:16:28

Your second question now, Rhys.

0:16:280:16:30

Mike "Stevo" Stephenson commentates on which sport?

0:16:300:16:35

I'm going to rule out cricket first, because I'm sure it's not that.

0:16:380:16:43

I listen to a lot of Rugby League on TV,

0:16:430:16:48

and I'm not sure about the commentators on that.

0:16:480:16:55

Swimming, on the other hand, is quite tempting.

0:16:570:17:02

I'm going to go with...

0:17:050:17:07

..swimming.

0:17:080:17:10

Swimming is wrong.

0:17:100:17:12

It's Rugby League.

0:17:120:17:13

Chris, over to you. Here's your next question.

0:17:130:17:17

On a traditional dartboard, the 3 sits

0:17:170:17:19

immediately between the 19 and which other number?

0:17:190:17:22

Well, straight down the middle, 13.

0:17:260:17:28

Any darts players among our Eggheads?

0:17:300:17:33

Kevin, you used to play?

0:17:330:17:34

-Yeah, 17.

-17 is the answer.

0:17:340:17:37

Chris, you're wrong.

0:17:370:17:38

Rhys, your next question. The Grand Match is a competition

0:17:410:17:44

between participants from North and South Scotland in which sport?

0:17:440:17:48

Well, Scotland's famous for curling, I know that.

0:17:520:17:56

Don't think it's golf,

0:17:590:18:00

I don't know why they'd divide north and south on that.

0:18:000:18:04

I'm going to go with...

0:18:060:18:09

shinty.

0:18:090:18:10

Shinty is wrong.

0:18:120:18:13

It's curling.

0:18:140:18:17

Chris, over to you.

0:18:170:18:19

Brett Favre was the star quarterback

0:18:200:18:22

of which American football team from 1992 to 2008?

0:18:220:18:27

Bit of detective work going on here.

0:18:330:18:36

Brett Favre sounds like he might be of French extraction,

0:18:360:18:39

which means he comes from somewhere up by Canada.

0:18:390:18:42

And of those three teams, the one that was most successful

0:18:420:18:48

in the period under discussion...

0:18:480:18:51

Denver Broncos, apparently a bit of a joke.

0:18:510:18:54

The Minnesota Vikings, I don't think have won much really

0:18:540:18:58

so I'll say that he was with the Green Bay Packers.

0:18:580:19:01

Great logic, well done! Green Bay Packers is correct.

0:19:010:19:05

Where in the country is Green Bay?

0:19:050:19:07

Top end of Wisconsin.

0:19:070:19:08

So the geography logic was great.

0:19:080:19:11

Well done, Chris. One point each.

0:19:110:19:14

We're moving now to Sudden Death, so, here we go. Rhys, Liang Wenbo

0:19:140:19:19

is a rising star in which sport?

0:19:190:19:23

It's spelt W-E-N-B-O.

0:19:230:19:27

I think it's snooker.

0:19:270:19:29

Snooker's right.

0:19:290:19:32

Well done! Chris, pressure on you.

0:19:320:19:34

The football team SL Benfica is based in which European city?

0:19:340:19:39

Portuguese...

0:19:430:19:45

Not Porto...Lisbon!

0:19:450:19:48

Yeah! Lisbon is right, and the "L" in SL stands for Lisbon.

0:19:480:19:53

Still neck and neck. Over to you, Rhys.

0:19:530:19:55

Who came second in the 2007

0:19:550:19:58

BBC Sports Personality Of The Year award?

0:19:580:20:02

Second...who won it?

0:20:040:20:08

Joe Calzaghe won it, I think.

0:20:100:20:13

Lewis Hamilton was up there.

0:20:160:20:18

I'm going to go with Lewis Hamilton.

0:20:210:20:23

Correct!

0:20:250:20:26

-Correct!

-Dear me!

-Well done!

0:20:290:20:32

He was favourite to win for a long time.

0:20:320:20:34

You're right to mention Joe Calzaghe, cos he won it. Well done.

0:20:340:20:38

Chris, your question.

0:20:380:20:39

Which British skier, who was disqualified from the combined event

0:20:390:20:43

at the 2006 Winter Olympics because her skis were too narrow,

0:20:430:20:47

is named after Sophia Loren's character in the film El Cid?

0:20:470:20:51

Glorianna Shufflewick!

0:20:540:20:56

-No, the answer's not Glorianna Shufflewick, it's Chemmy Alcott.

-Oh.

0:20:590:21:06

On the tip of your tongue, I know!

0:21:060:21:08

-Well done to Rhys!

-Well done, OK.

0:21:080:21:10

APPLAUSE

0:21:100:21:12

A bruising Sports round!

0:21:120:21:13

Well done, Rhys. You took on one of those Eggheads,

0:21:130:21:16

you emerged triumphant, it was not easily done.

0:21:160:21:19

Please both rejoin your teams here in the studio.

0:21:190:21:22

This is what we've been playing towards.

0:21:240:21:26

It's time for the final round which, as always, is General Knowledge.

0:21:260:21:30

But those of you who lost

0:21:300:21:31

your head-to-heads won't be allowed to take part in this round.

0:21:310:21:35

So, that's Frances from Act One - Fran,

0:21:350:21:38

and Judith, Daphne and Chris from the Eggheads.

0:21:380:21:41

You've done really well, Act One.

0:21:410:21:42

Please all leave the studio.

0:21:420:21:44

Rhys, Pete, Kim and Peter, you're playing to win Act One £8,000.

0:21:460:21:51

Good luck.

0:21:510:21:52

Kevin and CJ, you're playing for something

0:21:520:21:55

which money can't buy - the Eggheads' reputation.

0:21:550:21:58

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

0:21:580:22:00

The questions are all general knowledge,

0:22:000:22:03

and you are allowed to confer.

0:22:030:22:05

Act One, the question is -

0:22:050:22:06

are your four brains better than the Eggheads' two?

0:22:060:22:10

And would you like to go first or second?

0:22:100:22:13

-First, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:22:130:22:15

I think we'll continue the trend, Jeremy.

0:22:150:22:17

You're going first.

0:22:180:22:20

Best of luck, Act One, here we go.

0:22:200:22:22

Which Latin phrase literally means, "There is truth in wine"?

0:22:220:22:25

Yeah, vino means wine, so, happy with that?

0:22:360:22:39

Yeah, we'll go for, "In vino veritas."

0:22:390:22:42

Quite right, well done. First point.

0:22:420:22:44

Don't want to trip up on that one!

0:22:440:22:47

Eggheads, which acronym refers to the American tax collection service?

0:22:470:22:52

Do you want my help on that? Go on, then.

0:22:580:23:00

Well, you certainly wouldn't want the third one involved on your case!

0:23:000:23:04

It's the IRS, Internal Revenue Service.

0:23:040:23:06

Absolutely right, well done.

0:23:060:23:07

One each. Back to you guys.

0:23:070:23:09

The popular country music show known as the Grand Ole Opry

0:23:090:23:12

has, since 1925, been broadcast from which American city?

0:23:120:23:17

-Nashville.

-Nashville. Yes, definitely, 100% Nashville.

0:23:210:23:25

Kim is 100% on that one!

0:23:250:23:27

It's Nashville, Tennessee.

0:23:270:23:29

-Well done, Kim!

-Thank you.

-Have you been there?

0:23:290:23:32

-No, no, no.

-You just know!

-Yeah, I just know.

0:23:320:23:34

You're right. 2-1.

0:23:340:23:35

Next question is for the Eggheads.

0:23:350:23:38

Who was the first member of the England 1966 World Cup squad

0:23:380:23:41

to be given a knighthood?

0:23:410:23:43

Who was the first member of the England 1966 World Cup Squad

0:23:510:23:55

to be given a knighthood?

0:23:550:23:57

Bobby Charlton and Geoff Hurst got them, didn't they?

0:23:570:24:00

-Well, Geoff Hurst certainly did.

-Yeah.

0:24:000:24:03

-But it was quite late.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:24:030:24:05

Sir Bobby Charlton

0:24:050:24:07

-has got a knighthood, I'm sure.

-Yeah.

0:24:070:24:10

-Yeah, he has.

-I can't record Bobby Moore ever getting one.

0:24:100:24:13

When did he die?

0:24:130:24:16

I'm sure Daphne knows this as well.

0:24:160:24:21

I think I'll have to go with Charlton.

0:24:210:24:23

-I think so, yeah.

-Yeah, shall we?

0:24:230:24:29

Sorry, not today.

0:24:290:24:30

We just can't think of it, so we'll go with Bobby Charlton.

0:24:300:24:35

It was Bobby Charlton, got it right!

0:24:350:24:37

The next question is for Act One.

0:24:390:24:41

"In my younger, and more vulnerable, years my father gave me some advice

0:24:410:24:46

"that I've been turning over in my mind ever since,"

0:24:460:24:48

is the opening line of which 1925 novel?

0:24:480:24:52

"In my younger, and more vulnerable, years my father gave me some advice

0:24:580:25:02

"that I've been turning over in my mind ever since,"

0:25:020:25:04

is the opening line of which 1925 novel?

0:25:040:25:07

Before the options came up, I thought The Great Gatsby?

0:25:070:25:10

Mrs Dalloway was much earlier, I think.

0:25:100:25:14

It's exactly the right time. The Great Gatsby.

0:25:140:25:16

Are you happy to go with that?

0:25:160:25:18

Yeah, The Great Gatsby.

0:25:180:25:20

-Is the correct answer.

-Whoa!

-Very nice!

0:25:200:25:23

All right, you've got three out of three.

0:25:240:25:27

You are playing very, very well.

0:25:270:25:29

If the Eggheads get this wrong, you're going to win £8,000.

0:25:290:25:32

You won't have to do any more work today!

0:25:320:25:34

Eggheads, during Bill and Hilary Clinton's visit to London in 1997,

0:25:340:25:42

Tony and Cherie Blair chose to take them to which restaurant,

0:25:420:25:48

instead of holding a formal banquet?

0:25:480:25:50

You get this wrong,

0:25:560:25:57

and the challengers have won £8,000.

0:25:570:26:00

As far as I know, The River Cafe doesn't have any private rooms.

0:26:000:26:03

I've eaten there. It could do, but I'm not aware of it.

0:26:030:26:07

The Ivy probably has private rooms upstairs,

0:26:070:26:09

not in the downstairs restaurant.

0:26:090:26:11

And I know nothing about LePont de la Tour.

0:26:110:26:13

If we're looking at Tony and Cherie being the hip, young, new couple,

0:26:130:26:18

then The River Cafe is more of that image rather than The Ivy.

0:26:180:26:22

But, The Ivy, certainly at that time,

0:26:220:26:24

was by far the most established, most famous restaurant, I'd say.

0:26:240:26:27

I'm inclined to The River Cafe.

0:26:270:26:29

Fine! OK!

0:26:290:26:33

1997 was when the Blairs had just come in.

0:26:330:26:37

This idea of the trendy couples, young, hip, that sort of thing.

0:26:370:26:45

The Ivy may be a bit more stuffy?

0:26:450:26:47

Well, it's certainly that sort of place, yeah.

0:26:470:26:50

So, ultimately it's a pure guess. We'll say The River Cafe.

0:26:500:26:54

OK. The River Cafe is your answer?

0:26:540:26:57

Something you didn't know about one of these restaurants

0:26:570:27:01

is that it's on the banks of the Thames,

0:27:010:27:05

and it has a stunning view down the Thames

0:27:050:27:08

which includes the Houses of Parliament.

0:27:080:27:11

and that's why Tony and Cherie Blair took Bill and Hilary

0:27:110:27:16

to LePont de la Tour!

0:27:160:27:18

Well done!

0:27:180:27:20

Challengers, you just won £8,000.

0:27:200:27:22

Congratulations!

0:27:220:27:24

That is huge!

0:27:280:27:31

How does that feel?

0:27:310:27:33

ALL: Excellent!

0:27:330:27:34

-Really well done!

-Did not expect that at all!

0:27:340:27:39

Wouldn't have got that question.

0:27:390:27:41

The game went backwards and forwards,

0:27:410:27:43

and you looked as if you were down and out for a while.

0:27:430:27:46

What are you going to do with the money?

0:27:460:27:48

Pay off some student debts!

0:27:480:27:50

-Sure, that's a big part of life, right?

-Yeah.

0:27:500:27:54

Congratulations then, you've won £8,000. Brilliant play!

0:27:540:27:57

Well done! Eggheads, commiserations.

0:27:570:28:01

Great to see you in the studio, Act One.

0:28:010:28:04

You are officially cleverer than the Eggheads,

0:28:040:28:07

at least for the time being!

0:28:070:28:09

You've proved they can definitely be beaten.

0:28:090:28:11

Join us next time on Eggheads to see

0:28:110:28:14

if the new team of challengers will be just as successful.

0:28:140:28:18

Until then, after all this excitement, goodbye!
