These people are amongst the greatest quiz players in Britain.

0:00:040:00:07

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?

0:00:160:00:19

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 recognise them as they are goliaths in the world of TV quiz shows. They are the Eggheads.

0:00:300:00:35

And taking on the might of our quiz goliaths today

0:00:350:00:38

are the White Helmets.

0:00:380:00:40

The team are all serving soldiers in the British Army

0:00:400:00:44

and form part of the Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team.

0:00:440:00:48

Let's meet them.

0:00:480:00:49

Hi, I'm Ted, I'm 27 and I'm team captain of the Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team.

0:00:490:00:54

Hi, I'm Andy, I'm 35 and I'm team sergeant of the White Helmets.

0:00:540:00:58

Hi, I'm Tom, 22 and I'm a display rider for the White Helmets.

0:00:580:01:02

Hi, I'm Si, I'm 27 and I'm a display rider for the White Helmets.

0:01:020:01:06

Hi, I'm Mick, I'm 28 and I'm a display rider for the White Helmets.

0:01:060:01:09

So, welcome, White Helmets.

0:01:090:01:11

-And you're all riders?

-Indeed, yeah.

0:01:110:01:12

-And you go in formation?

-Yes.

0:01:120:01:15

So, what kind of formations do you do?

0:01:150:01:17

We've got a number, but probably the one that's most famous

0:01:170:01:21

and stereotypical of the White Helmets

0:01:210:01:23

is what we call the six bike fan.

0:01:230:01:26

Six motorcycles with 22 people in a pyramid formation on top.

0:01:260:01:29

-Wow! And you all do that, do you?

-Yes.

-Has it ever fallen over?

0:01:290:01:34

Yeah, accidents do happen and yeah, we've come off a couple of times

0:01:340:01:37

but we do quite a lot of training

0:01:370:01:39

during the winter period at the beginning

0:01:390:01:41

-of the year and hopefully iron out any major dramas that we have.

-Sure.

0:01:410:01:46

And you do the fire stunt as well?

0:01:460:01:49

Do you go through a ring of fire?

0:01:490:01:51

No, basically it's a U-shape frame

0:01:510:01:53

and everyone goes through it, everyone has to go through it

0:01:530:01:57

during their time with the team

0:01:570:01:59

but it's not as bad as it looks, really.

0:01:590:02:01

-Is this more scary?

-Yeah, I think so, yeah.

-THEY CHUCKLE

0:02:010:02:05

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

0:02:050:02:10

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

0:02:100:02:14

So, White Helmets, the Eggheads have won the last nine games,

0:02:140:02:17

which means £10,000, rather a nice figure, says you can't beat them.

0:02:170:02:23

I wish you all the best. The first head-to-head battle

0:02:230:02:26

will be on the subject of Film And Television.

0:02:260:02:28

Who's the film buff?

0:02:280:02:30

I think it's Si, isn't it?

0:02:300:02:32

I think we'll go with Si.

0:02:320:02:34

OK, Si kid against...

0:02:340:02:38

Judith.

0:02:380:02:39

Judith? That was said with such certainty.

0:02:390:02:43

We're not used to that.

0:02:430:02:45

All right, so it's Si from the White Helmets

0:02:450:02:48

going through the U-shaped thing of fire

0:02:480:02:51

against Judith from the Eggheads, and to ensure there's no conferring,

0:02:510:02:55

please take your positions in the question room.

0:02:550:02:59

So, Si, you just do display riding,

0:02:590:03:02

or you're a soldier most of the time or what?

0:03:020:03:04

Well, we do a three-year tour with the White Helmets,

0:03:040:03:07

so the display riding takes over for three years and after that we go back to a working unit in the Army.

0:03:070:03:13

And you go back to the Royal Signals?

0:03:130:03:15

I should do, but at the moment I am trying to recap badge to a pilot in the Army Air Corps.

0:03:150:03:21

OK. Well, good luck with that and this as well.

0:03:210:03:24

You're playing Judith on Film And TV. Three multiple choice questions

0:03:240:03:27

and I'll ask you whether you want the first or the second set.

0:03:270:03:31

I think I'll go second.

0:03:310:03:32

Here we go, Judith. Anthony Minghella won a Best Director Oscar

0:03:340:03:40

for which 1996 film?

0:03:400:03:41

I'm just wondering if The English Patient was that long ago.

0:03:470:03:51

Erm...I mean, that's 12 years... Oh, it's not that long ago.

0:03:530:03:57

I think The English Patient.

0:03:570:03:59

Is correct, well done, Judith.

0:04:010:04:03

Over to you, Si.

0:04:030:04:05

Which relative of Indiana Jones famously features in the 1989 film

0:04:050:04:11

Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade?

0:04:110:04:14

I think it's Sean Connery playing his father.

0:04:180:04:22

You're quite right...it is.

0:04:230:04:24

Judith, over to you.

0:04:240:04:27

Which actress appeared in the films

0:04:270:04:29

Gosford Park, Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and Sister Act?

0:04:290:04:34

Well, I know Maggie Smith was in Gosford Park,

0:04:400:04:44

and I don't think Judi Dench was or Glenda Jackson.

0:04:440:04:47

I think it's Maggie Smith.

0:04:470:04:50

I know she was in one of the others

0:04:500:04:52

and I'm not sure about the third, but I think it's Maggie Smith.

0:04:520:04:55

And you're right. It was Maggie Smith, well done.

0:04:550:04:58

Over to you, Si. Keep the pressure on now.

0:04:580:05:01

What was the name of the character

0:05:010:05:03

played by Joan Collins in the TV series Dynasty?

0:05:030:05:07

I'm not too sure but if I was going to go for one, I'd go for Alexis.

0:05:130:05:18

-Is that your answer?

-Yes, it is.

0:05:180:05:19

Probably before you were born this, was it?

0:05:190:05:23

Yeah, I think so.

0:05:230:05:24

But you're right. Well done.

0:05:240:05:26

Two apiece.

0:05:260:05:28

OK, Judith,

0:05:290:05:30

what was the name of the first Blue Peter cat

0:05:300:05:34

who first appeared on the show in 1964?

0:05:340:05:38

Oh, God!

0:05:420:05:44

Funnily enough, I didn't used to watch it in those days.

0:05:440:05:47

I'm much younger than I look. SHE LAUGHS

0:05:490:05:52

Was Jason the dog? Willow...

0:05:550:05:59

Jason sounds a bit too sort of tough for a cat.

0:05:590:06:03

Willow or Smudge, Willow or Smudge...Smudge.

0:06:030:06:07

It's Willow.

0:06:070:06:09

-It's Jason!

-Oh, it's not!

0:06:090:06:11

It was a very manly cat.

0:06:110:06:13

-It must have been.

-Probably did some stunt motorcycling.

0:06:130:06:17

Sorry, Judith, so your chance now to take the round, Si,

0:06:170:06:22

with this question.

0:06:220:06:23

Katharine Hepburn won one of her four Best Actress Oscars

0:06:230:06:29

for playing Ethel Thayer in which film?

0:06:290:06:32

I haven't got a clue.

0:06:380:06:40

I would have to go for...

0:06:430:06:46

On Golden Pond.

0:06:460:06:49

I love the way that you seem not to know anything

0:06:490:06:52

and then you suddenly just go straight in

0:06:520:06:55

on the correct answer, because it is right. Well done.

0:06:550:06:59

On Golden Pond.

0:06:590:07:01

Which means, Si, that you have taken on an Egghead

0:07:010:07:04

and emerged triumphant and, Judith, you know what I'm going to say.

0:07:040:07:08

-Yes, you don't need to.

-You're not gonna play in the...?

0:07:080:07:11

Final round.

0:07:110:07:13

Thank you, and, Si, you will be in the final round. Congratulations.

0:07:130:07:16

Both of you please come back and rejoin your team mates.

0:07:160:07:20

The Eggheads have lost one brain from the final round.

0:07:200:07:23

Challengers remain intact, they've lost no brains. The next subject is Arts And Books.

0:07:230:07:28

Which one of you is reading... or painting?

0:07:280:07:30

-Tom, I think...

-I think it's gonna have to be Tom.

0:07:300:07:34

-Take it on?

-He's the most well-read.

-He's the youngest team member at 22.

0:07:340:07:38

And probably the person fullest

0:07:380:07:41

with just random information on these subjects.

0:07:410:07:45

Now the tricky bit.

0:07:450:07:47

-Which one of these lot?

-I'll take on CJ.

0:07:470:07:51

CJ? OK. Tom from the White Helmets against CJ from the Eggheads.

0:07:510:07:55

Take your positions, please.

0:07:550:07:58

We'll ask each of your three questions on Arts And Books in turn.

0:07:580:08:02

-Tom, you can choose the first or the second set?

-I'll go first, please.

0:08:020:08:06

Tom, what is the term for an introductory speech or poem

0:08:080:08:11

addressed to the audience by one of the actors in a play?

0:08:110:08:14

That would be prologue, Jeremy.

0:08:190:08:21

Straight in there, and you're quite right, yeah, well done.

0:08:210:08:25

CJ, Shakespeare's plays are commonly split into three groups,

0:08:270:08:31

comedies, tragedies and what?

0:08:310:08:35

They're the histories.

0:08:380:08:41

They are the histories, CJ, well done.

0:08:410:08:44

One apiece. Back to you, Tom.

0:08:440:08:46

In which decade of the 20th century

0:08:460:08:49

did the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso die?

0:08:490:08:52

I believe he snuffed it in the '70s. That's right.

0:08:580:09:02

-You don't hang about, do you?

-I remember that one.

0:09:020:09:05

It was on a plaque in an airport in Malaga.

0:09:050:09:08

-Pablo Picasso International Airport.

-You're a quizzer. You're right.

0:09:080:09:12

We're impressed.

0:09:150:09:17

CJ, Mystic River, Shutter Island

0:09:170:09:21

and Gone Baby Gone are novels by which American author?

0:09:210:09:26

Oh, dear.

0:09:320:09:34

Of course I know the films Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone.

0:09:350:09:39

I've not seen them, of course, but I know the films.

0:09:390:09:42

I'm just trying to think back to reading the reviews of them,

0:09:440:09:49

if it actually mentioned... I can't remember back to Mystic River,

0:09:490:09:52

but Gone Baby Gone was a reasonably recent film.

0:09:520:09:56

I'm not gonna go for James Ellroy,

0:09:560:09:59

so I'm gonna go for one of the other two.

0:09:590:10:02

I'm gonna go for Dennis Lehane, please.

0:10:020:10:05

And that is right.

0:10:070:10:08

Well done. Two points each, both playing well.

0:10:080:10:12

Third question to you, Tom.

0:10:120:10:14

Which poet born in 1865

0:10:140:10:17

had a brother called Jack who was a distinguished painter?

0:10:170:10:21

I have to be honest, I honestly have no idea, so I'm gonna have

0:10:270:10:32

a guess and go for TS Eliot.

0:10:320:10:35

It's like a missile, your guessing,

0:10:350:10:37

but it hit the wrong target this time.

0:10:370:10:39

It's actually WB Yeats. Sorry, Tom.

0:10:390:10:43

Still a chance here, though,

0:10:430:10:44

if CJ gets this wrong.

0:10:440:10:47

CJ, the Railroad Bridge at Argenteuil

0:10:470:10:50

is a work by which artist?

0:10:500:10:52

I'm just trying to think.

0:10:580:10:59

I'm not sure I know the painting

0:10:590:11:01

and I'm reasonably familiar with all three of those artists' works.

0:11:010:11:07

They've got a lot of paintings in the National Gallery,

0:11:070:11:10

a separate wing for them, so I go round and look at all their works.

0:11:100:11:13

Pissarro painted a lot of rural... sort of cultural scenes

0:11:160:11:23

and I'm not sure if it's Renoir's style. I'm gonna go for Monet.

0:11:230:11:26

CJ, you're right.

0:11:260:11:27

It is Monet.

0:11:270:11:29

So with that...

0:11:290:11:32

you take the round and, Tom, I'm sorry,

0:11:320:11:35

you won't be playing in the final round because you're extremely knowledgeable.

0:11:350:11:39

CJ, you will be. Do both of you come back and rejoin your teams.

0:11:390:11:42

So as it stands, the Challengers and the Eggheads have lost one brain each from the final round.

0:11:420:11:47

Our next subject is Sport.

0:11:470:11:50

Who wants Sport?

0:11:500:11:53

It can't be Si or Tom.

0:11:530:11:55

THEY CONFER We'll go with Andy.

0:11:550:11:58

Andy on Sport against which Egghead?

0:11:580:12:00

-Not CJ, not Judith.

-Chris?

0:12:000:12:02

-Yeah.

-Sure? THEY CONFER

0:12:020:12:04

-Chris, I think.

-So it's Andy from the White Helmets

0:12:040:12:08

against Chris from the Eggheads, and to ensure there's no conferring,

0:12:080:12:11

please take your positions in the question room.

0:12:110:12:14

Good luck in this round, both of you. Three questions on Sport,

0:12:140:12:17

Chris's favourite subject. Andy, first or second set?

0:12:170:12:20

I think I'll go first, please.

0:12:200:12:22

Andy, in what position did the former England Rugby Union Captain,

0:12:250:12:29

Martin Johnson, play throughout his career?

0:12:290:12:31

Martin Johnson, definitely not the hooker.

0:12:340:12:37

I'm sure he's lock, I'm sure he's a lock.

0:12:370:12:40

He was a lock, well done.

0:12:420:12:45

Would you have got that, Chris?

0:12:450:12:47

Yeah, I was getting there actually.

0:12:470:12:49

Your question. James Bonecrusher Smith and James Lights Out Tony

0:12:490:12:54

are names associated with which sport?

0:12:540:12:57

Well, the Bonecrusher was certainly a boxer

0:13:030:13:06

and Lights Out suggests a knock-out to me,

0:13:060:13:09

so I'd say it would have to be boxing.

0:13:090:13:12

It is boxing, well done.

0:13:120:13:14

Over to you, Andy.

0:13:140:13:16

Which British jockey who rode a record nine Epsom Derby winners

0:13:160:13:21

was known as the Long Fellow?

0:13:210:13:23

Walter Swinburn, I don't know, only the other two I do.

0:13:290:13:33

I think I'd go with the guy...

0:13:360:13:38

Lester Piggott.

0:13:380:13:39

-Is correct.

-Whew!

0:13:400:13:41

Well done, Andy.

0:13:410:13:43

Chris, your question.

0:13:450:13:47

What is the most valuable football club in the world

0:13:470:13:50

according to Forbes Magazines 2008 Rich List?

0:13:500:13:55

Well, football ceased to be a sport decades ago and became a business.

0:14:030:14:08

Well, they're all pretty wealthy clubs...

0:14:080:14:11

..but, I think in terms of assets owned and capital invested,

0:14:120:14:17

it's got to be Manchester United.

0:14:170:14:19

Great logic, and you're right.

0:14:190:14:21

You draw level. Well done.

0:14:210:14:23

Andy...

0:14:230:14:25

who did Jana Novotna defeat

0:14:250:14:27

to win the 1998 Ladies' Singles title at Wimbledon?

0:14:270:14:31

Zina and Lindsay are the only two I actually know.

0:14:380:14:42

It will have to be a guess again. Erm...go on...

0:14:440:14:47

Lindsay Davenport.

0:14:470:14:48

That's wrong. It's the one you hadn't heard of, actually.

0:14:480:14:52

It's Natalie Tauziat. Not a particularly famous player.

0:14:520:14:56

No. Both Zina Garrison and Natalie Tauziat reached

0:14:560:14:59

the final of Wimbledon, Zina in '94, Natalie in '98,

0:14:590:15:03

and then Lindsay Davenport won it the year after in '99.

0:15:030:15:06

Thank you, CJ. Good facts. Your question, Chris.

0:15:060:15:09

Which 19-year-old New Zealander

0:15:090:15:12

hit more sixes on his test match debut in 2008

0:15:120:15:16

than Don Bradman managed in his whole test career?

0:15:160:15:20

I think I actually read this a few days ago, amazingly enough,

0:15:250:15:30

but I'm blowed if I can remember what his name was.

0:15:300:15:33

I think it was Chris Martin. The name would have stuck

0:15:350:15:37

because it's the same name as myself.

0:15:370:15:40

I don't think it's Tim Southee somehow,

0:15:400:15:42

it doesn't strike me as a particularly New Zealand name

0:15:420:15:45

so I'll try, with no great hope of success, Grant Elliott.

0:15:450:15:49

How did you come to be reading this fact only a few days ago?

0:15:490:15:53

Well, I do read the papers.

0:15:530:15:55

I don't usually read anything in the sports section whatsoever,

0:15:550:15:59

but I think this item did catch my eye for some reason.

0:15:590:16:03

You didn't linger on it long enough, I'm afraid.

0:16:030:16:05

-It was Tim Southee.

-Was it?

0:16:050:16:07

So you're level, two points each.

0:16:070:16:09

We go to Sudden Death.

0:16:090:16:11

Bit harder now, Andy, because it's not multiple choice.

0:16:110:16:15

Your first question.

0:16:150:16:17

Which British golfer came to prominence as a 17-year-old amateur

0:16:170:16:21

at the 1998 Open Championship holding a dramatic birdie

0:16:210:16:25

on the 18th hole to finish tied for 4th place?

0:16:250:16:30

I can see him.

0:16:320:16:35

I'm sure he's the one who wears the garish outfits,

0:16:360:16:39

or he's got his own brand of golfing attire now. I'm sure it's him.

0:16:390:16:46

I'll have to pass on that. My mind's a blank.

0:16:490:16:52

OK, it's Justin Rose.

0:16:520:16:54

-Justin Rose.

-He's now the top ranked English player but he complained

0:16:540:17:00

that after he'd poled the putt and walked up to the golf house,

0:17:000:17:03

all the young ladies, shall we say,

0:17:030:17:05

-in the crowd started pinching his bum.

-And he complained?

0:17:050:17:09

-Mm.

-Chris...

0:17:090:17:11

in 1987, the Bulgarian, Stefka Kostadinova,

0:17:110:17:15

set a long-standing world record in which athletics event?

0:17:150:17:21

Bulgarian, you say?

0:17:210:17:23

Bulgarian Stefka Kostadinova.

0:17:230:17:27

What are Bulgarians good at?

0:17:270:17:29

Let's try the pole vault.

0:17:320:17:34

Well, it did involve going up a long distance,

0:17:340:17:37

but it's not with the help of a pole. It's the high jump.

0:17:370:17:41

She jumped 2.09 metres

0:17:410:17:44

and it's still the record today, 21 years on.

0:17:440:17:48

Andy, your question. Sudden Death, remember.

0:17:480:17:51

At which horseracing course

0:17:510:17:53

does the Golden Jubilee stakes take place each June?

0:17:530:17:57

Golden Jubilee...

0:17:590:18:01

There's only a couple of horse-racing venues that I know.

0:18:060:18:10

And I would have...

0:18:100:18:11

Aintree, Ascot, erm...

0:18:110:18:14

Golden Jubilee...

0:18:140:18:16

Aintree?

0:18:180:18:20

What a shame. You've just gone 50/50 and you've gone the wrong way.

0:18:200:18:24

It's Ascot. You were there with the As.

0:18:240:18:26

Never mind. It's not over yet.

0:18:280:18:31

Chris, your question. If you get this right you're in the final.

0:18:310:18:34

The Stretford End and the Brian Statham End

0:18:340:18:38

are features of which English test cricket ground?

0:18:380:18:43

Yeah! South Manchester used to be a stomping ground of mine

0:18:430:18:46

when I was small

0:18:460:18:48

and it is Old Trafford.

0:18:480:18:51

It is indeed Old Trafford. Well done, Chris.

0:18:510:18:54

You've won on Sudden Death.

0:18:540:18:56

You've taken the round. You will appear in the final.

0:18:560:18:59

-Andy, I'm sorry, you won't. You've been beaten by an Egghead which I know is painful.

-Yeah.

0:18:590:19:03

Please come back and rejoin your teams.

0:19:030:19:07

Well, as it stands, the Challengers

0:19:070:19:09

have lost two brains from the final round,

0:19:090:19:11

Eggheads have lost one brain. Last subject is Music.

0:19:110:19:14

Which of the Challengers wants to play in this round?

0:19:140:19:18

-It's going to be Mick.

-Mick on Music against which Egghead?

0:19:180:19:22

-Daphne or...?

-Erm...

-Can't be Chris, CJ or Judith.

0:19:230:19:26

I'll go for Daphne, please.

0:19:260:19:29

OK. Mick from the White Helmets against Daphne from the Eggheads.

0:19:290:19:33

Please take your positions in the question room.

0:19:330:19:37

We will ask you three questions on Music in turn.

0:19:370:19:39

You can choose, Mick, the first or second set?

0:19:390:19:42

I'll go for the second set of questions, please.

0:19:420:19:44

Daphne, what was the name of the Spice Girls' debut single

0:19:470:19:50

which topped the UK charts in 1996?

0:19:500:19:53

I think that was Wannabe.

0:20:000:20:02

Yes, yes?

0:20:020:20:04

-It was. You've gotta sing it for us.

-No!

0:20:040:20:08

-It's got that amazing... Judith, can you sing it?

-Definitely not.

0:20:080:20:12

-It's girl power, though, isn't it?

-Girl power.

0:20:120:20:14

And you're the two girls here, so...

0:20:140:20:16

-I can't sign either, like Daphne.

-Are you not gonna try?

-No.

0:20:160:20:20

Mick, your question.

0:20:200:20:22

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens"

0:20:220:20:25

is the first line of a song from which musical?

0:20:250:20:28

I don't think it's Mary Poppins, and I haven't seen Guys And Dolls.

0:20:350:20:40

I think it's The Sound Of Music, so I'll go with The Sound Of Music.

0:20:400:20:44

Well done, you've got it right.

0:20:440:20:45

The Sound Of Music, correct answer.

0:20:450:20:47

Daphne, which artist wrote the song Knocking On Heaven's Door in 1973?

0:20:490:20:55

Gosh, I don't know.

0:21:010:21:03

Bob Dylan.

0:21:060:21:08

-You do know, don't you?

-No. When you said that I thought,

0:21:080:21:12

"Oh, it's Eric Clapton." It's obviously not.

0:21:120:21:16

Yes, that was Tears From Heaven, wasn't it?

0:21:180:21:20

-Knocking On Heaven's Door is Bob Dylan.

-Oh, phew!

0:21:200:21:22

Mick, Nobody's Diary and Don't Go

0:21:230:21:27

were UK hit singles in the 1980s for which duo?

0:21:270:21:31

I was only young in the 80s.

0:21:360:21:38

You were five or something.

0:21:410:21:43

Around about that sort of age, yeah.

0:21:430:21:46

I'll go for Yazoo.

0:21:480:21:51

You've got the right answer, well done.

0:21:510:21:53

Your question now, Daphne.

0:21:550:21:57

If you get this right, you put pressure on Mick.

0:21:570:22:00

Daphne, which character did Michael Jackson play

0:22:000:22:04

in the 1978 film The Wiz?

0:22:040:22:06

No idea.

0:22:110:22:14

Absolutely no idea whatsoever.

0:22:140:22:17

I wonder if he'd be brave enough to be the scarecrow.

0:22:170:22:23

-I don't know!

-Is that your answer?

0:22:230:22:25

That is. I'm sorry, Jeremy.

0:22:250:22:28

Scarecrow is right, you've got it right.

0:22:280:22:32

I just thought which was the most unlikely.

0:22:320:22:35

Your guess work is extraordinary as always.

0:22:350:22:39

Mick, you've got to get this right to stay in the final.

0:22:390:22:43

What is the copyright period for recording music in the UK?

0:22:430:22:46

Again I've got no idea, but this is not something

0:22:510:22:54

I've researched on music.

0:22:540:22:56

I haven't written that many songs myself.

0:22:560:22:59

I would imagine that it's not gonna be that long.

0:23:000:23:05

I'll go with 25 years.

0:23:050:23:07

If you get this wrong you are out of the game...

0:23:080:23:12

and I'm afraid you have.

0:23:120:23:14

It's 50 years. So, well done, Daphne.

0:23:140:23:18

Mick, you were beaten by our Egghead,

0:23:180:23:20

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

0:23:200:23:23

Would you both please come back to the studio?

0:23:230:23:27

So, this is what we've been playing towards.

0:23:270:23:29

It's our final round, which as always is General Knowledge.

0:23:290:23:32

I'm afraid those of you who lost won't be allowed to take part.

0:23:320:23:37

So, that is Andy, Tom and Mick from the White Helmets and Judith from the Eggheads.

0:23:370:23:41

We say goodbye to you. Please leave the studio.

0:23:410:23:45

Well, Ted and Si, you're playing to win the White Helmets £10,000.

0:23:450:23:49

Your three colleagues behind you can't play,

0:23:490:23:52

they look as if they're in a motorcycle formation there,

0:23:520:23:55

as a matter of fact.

0:23:550:23:56

Kevin, CJ, Daphne and Chris, you're playing for something money can't buy, the Eggheads' reputation.

0:23:560:24:01

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

0:24:010:24:04

This time the questions are all General Knowledge.

0:24:040:24:07

You are allowed to confer, so, White Helmets, the question is,

0:24:070:24:10

are your two brains better than the Eggheads' four?

0:24:100:24:15

Ted and Si, you can choose the first or second set of questions.

0:24:150:24:18

-First or second?

-Second, I think.

-We'll go second, please.

0:24:180:24:21

So, Eggheads go first. Here we go.

0:24:230:24:26

Who set a world record on live TV in April 2008

0:24:260:24:30

when he held his breath underwater for 17 minutes and 4 seconds?

0:24:300:24:35

We think that was David Blaine.

0:24:420:24:44

It still wasn't long enough.

0:24:440:24:46

David Blaine is the correct answer.

0:24:460:24:49

First question for the White Helmets.

0:24:490:24:52

In which nursery rhyme does the "dish run away with the spoon"?

0:24:520:24:56

Hey Diddle Diddle, isn't it?

0:25:030:25:04

Yeah, I think we'll go for Hey Diddle Diddle.

0:25:060:25:09

Hey Diddle Diddle.

0:25:090:25:11

Said in a very manly way.

0:25:110:25:12

It is right. It is Hey Diddle Diddle.

0:25:120:25:15

One point apiece.

0:25:150:25:18

Eggheads, can you keep up the momentum?

0:25:180:25:20

In which part of the world was the ancient region of Venetia located?

0:25:200:25:25

In which part of the world was the ancient region of Venetia located?

0:25:280:25:34

THEY CONFER

0:25:340:25:38

It's in what's known as the Levant, the eastern end

0:25:380:25:41

of the Mediterranean, Lebanon, that way, so it's Middle East.

0:25:410:25:45

Middle East is the correct answer, Kevin, well done to you, Eggheads.

0:25:450:25:49

Second question to you, White Helmets.

0:25:490:25:52

In May 2008, Scarlett Johansson

0:25:520:25:56

announced her engagement to which actor?

0:25:560:25:59

Zac Efron is the guy from High School Musical, so I don't think it's him.

0:26:050:26:09

I've never heard of Ryan Reynolds.

0:26:090:26:13

Ryan Reynolds played Van Wilder in Party Liaison

0:26:130:26:16

-and the guy from Blade Trinity.

-Right.

0:26:160:26:18

Between Josh and Ryan, then, isn't it?

0:26:180:26:21

Yeah.

0:26:210:26:23

I think it's more likely to be Josh Hartnett,

0:26:230:26:26

because I can remember seeing some random tabloid of my wife's.

0:26:260:26:29

I think we'll go for Josh Hartnett.

0:26:290:26:32

You've gone for Josh Hartnett.

0:26:320:26:34

I'm afraid it's Ryan Reynolds, wrong answer.

0:26:340:26:37

Third question to you, Eggheads,

0:26:370:26:40

and if you get this right,

0:26:400:26:42

you've won the contest...

0:26:420:26:44

and the £10,000 is taken from our White Helmets.

0:26:440:26:49

On an African safari, the term "big five"

0:26:490:26:53

refers to buffalo, elephants, lions, leopards and which other animal?

0:26:530:26:59

On an African safari, the term "big five"

0:27:040:27:07

refers to buffalo, elephants, lions, leopards and which other animal?

0:27:070:27:12

It's not the zebra.

0:27:120:27:14

I always that it was giraffe.

0:27:140:27:17

-It's not zebra.

-No.

0:27:170:27:20

Well, it can't be hippo, surely?

0:27:200:27:21

I don't know it, but it's got to be surely rhino.

0:27:210:27:24

Hippos and zebra aren't game, surely?

0:27:240:27:26

-No, and rhinoceros is.

-Yeah.

0:27:260:27:29

-Yeah.

-Happy?

0:27:290:27:32

They're fierce, as opposed to hippos,

0:27:320:27:34

which, unless you provoke them, are pretty placid.

0:27:340:27:36

Yeah, OK.

0:27:360:27:38

Don't know it 100% but we think it must be rhinoceros,

0:27:380:27:41

so we're saying rhinoceros.

0:27:410:27:43

It would have been harder if you'd had giraffe, would it?

0:27:430:27:46

Yeah. I thought it was giraffe.

0:27:460:27:47

I didn't think they hunt giraffe.

0:27:470:27:49

Anyway, no giraffes and rhinoceros is correct,

0:27:490:27:53

so, Eggheads, you have won the final round and the contest.

0:27:530:27:57

Congratulations.

0:27:570:27:59

That's the trouble with giving them the first go. They scooped it, they took your money.

0:28:050:28:10

Commiserations, Challengers. They fought a good game.

0:28:100:28:13

-They did, yep.

-And you are still better motorcyclists than them.

0:28:130:28:16

There's no doubt about that.

0:28:160:28:19

But the Eggheads' winning streak continues.

0:28:190:28:22

I'm afraid you won't be going home with the £10,000, so that money rolls over

0:28:220:28:26

to our next show. Eggheads, congratulations.

0:28:260:28:29

Who will ever beat you?

0:28:290:28:30

Join us next time to see if the new Challengers have the brains to defeat the Eggheads.

0:28:300:28:35

£11,000 will say they don't.

0:28:350:28:38

Until then, goodbye.
