Hello, I'm Rick Edwards and this is !mpossible, day 12.

0:00:020:00:04

Welcome to !mpossible,

0:00:150:00:17

the quiz where the questions aren't impossible but some of the answers

0:00:170:00:20

always are. They're not just wrong, they couldn't possibly be right.

0:00:200:00:24

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:240:00:25

The right answer is yellow, the wrong answer is red,

0:00:330:00:36

but orange is not a primary colour so that is the impossible answer.

0:00:360:00:40

Hoping to get lots of right answers, whilst dodging those pesky

0:00:400:00:43

impossible answers, are 30 players.

0:00:430:00:46

Hello, players. PLAYERS: Hello!

0:00:460:00:48

They are with us throughout the series,

0:00:480:00:50

competing not only for a daily prize pot of up to £1,500...

0:00:500:00:54

PLAYERS: WOO!

0:00:540:00:55

..but also for a shot at the £10,000 question.

0:00:550:00:58

PLAYERS: WOO!

0:00:580:01:00

Yes, this exclamation mark is filled with 10,000 shimmering pound coins.

0:01:000:01:06

At the end of every show our winner faces one final question.

0:01:060:01:11

Here it is - today's £10,000 question.

0:01:110:01:15

Get this right and all of that cash will come flooding out.

0:01:150:01:20

So, last time, Gerard left us with £10,000,

0:01:200:01:25

and now we welcome to his seat Chris!

0:01:250:01:27

APPLAUSE

0:01:270:01:28

Hello, Chris.

0:01:280:01:30

-How are you?

-Oh, very well, yeah. Glad to be here.

0:01:300:01:34

And what do you do when you're not on quiz shows, Chris?

0:01:340:01:36

I'm an actor and also a salesman

0:01:360:01:37

but, at the end of the day, they're one and the same, aren't they?

0:01:370:01:40

-What kind of stuff do you act in?

-Mainly commercial acting.

0:01:400:01:42

I'm just the father, the businessman,

0:01:420:01:45

or the tradesman, it seems.

0:01:450:01:47

OK. Let's crack on.

0:01:470:01:49

You'll face five multiple-choice questions, each with three answers.

0:01:490:01:54

The right answer scores you a point.

0:01:540:01:56

The wrong answers scores you nothing.

0:01:560:01:58

But if you choose the impossible answer...

0:01:580:02:01

Oh, dear -

0:02:010:02:03

that immediately knocks you out of today's show

0:02:030:02:06

and you'll have to try again tomorrow.

0:02:060:02:09

After five questions, the highest scorer gets the first chance

0:02:090:02:11

to bag a place in today's final.

0:02:110:02:13

And do answer as quickly as you can because, in the event of a tie,

0:02:130:02:17

whoever locked in their answers the fastest will qualify.

0:02:170:02:20

Good luck. Here's your first question.

0:02:200:02:23

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:02:350:02:38

So a point to all of you who went for Snoopy.

0:02:420:02:45

-Alan.

-Yeah, I'm a big fan of Snoopy.

0:02:450:02:48

But I do know that Snowy is Tintin's dog

0:02:480:02:51

and has been in cartoons, so I'm safe.

0:02:510:02:54

You do run a comic book shop, which gives you an advantage here,

0:02:540:02:57

in theory, Alan.

0:02:570:02:58

And Shaggy is Scooby Doo's...

0:02:580:03:01

friend.

0:03:010:03:02

-Bim.

-I thought there is a dog called Shaggy.

0:03:020:03:05

You think there is a dog called Shaggy?

0:03:050:03:07

I thought that, yeah.

0:03:070:03:09

Well, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:03:090:03:11

I'm sorry, Bim.

0:03:150:03:17

As Alan said, Shaggy is Scooby Doo's human friend.

0:03:170:03:22

So that means we have to say goodbye to six of you at this early stage.

0:03:220:03:27

We'll see you all tomorrow.

0:03:270:03:29

Question number two.

0:03:300:03:31

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:03:460:03:49

A point to everyone who went for Major.

0:03:520:03:55

That does mean that either one or a lot of you

0:03:550:04:00

have given the impossible answer.

0:04:000:04:02

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:020:04:05

Commodore is not a rank in the Army.

0:04:110:04:15

It's in the Navy.

0:04:150:04:16

It's the senior rank equivalent to brigadier.

0:04:160:04:19

OK. I don't know if that helps you.

0:04:190:04:21

LAUGHTER

0:04:210:04:22

-We'll see you tomorrow.

-Cheers.

0:04:220:04:24

Question three.

0:04:260:04:27

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:04:390:04:41

A point to everyone who went for Mark.

0:04:430:04:47

-Kurtis?

-I think she was in Big Brother at some point,

0:04:470:04:51

which is the only reason why I've heard of any of them, unfortunately.

0:04:510:04:54

I'm not even going to say it, actually.

0:04:540:04:56

No, go on, go on.

0:04:560:04:58

Pretty sure I'm safe...

0:04:580:05:01

OK. Let's see.

0:05:010:05:03

I mean, your voice was breaking.

0:05:030:05:06

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:05:060:05:08

HIGH-PITCHED: You are safe... Kurtis.

0:05:120:05:14

Pretty sure I'm safe.

0:05:140:05:15

Denis Thatcher, of course, her husband.

0:05:150:05:17

I think Carol was in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

0:05:170:05:20

Yes.

0:05:200:05:22

Question number four.

0:05:220:05:24

The vast majority of you have gone for "Framboise"

0:05:380:05:42

but we have some "Grenadine" and a couple of "Calvados".

0:05:420:05:46

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:05:460:05:48

It's B - Framboise, meaning you all get a point if you went for that.

0:05:500:05:55

Anthony.

0:05:550:05:57

I kind of panicked. I saw Framboise,

0:05:570:05:59

I thought, yeah, it's got to be that.

0:05:590:06:01

And then I saw Calvados and I went, oh, it's that.

0:06:010:06:03

But then I think, I'm hoping, that Calvados is a type of brandy.

0:06:030:06:08

OK.

0:06:080:06:10

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:06:100:06:12

Grenadine is not a brandy.

0:06:170:06:19

It's a syrup made from pomegranate.

0:06:190:06:22

That means, Paul and our newcomer, Chris,

0:06:220:06:26

I'm afraid we have to say goodbye but we will see you both tomorrow.

0:06:260:06:29

You'll be pleased to hear, Anthony,

0:06:310:06:33

that Calvados is a type of apple brandy.

0:06:330:06:35

Question number five.

0:06:360:06:38

We have a full house, and a pretty even split across the answers.

0:06:560:07:01

Let's first reveal the impossible answer.

0:07:010:07:06

He wasn't in "Are You Being Served?".

0:07:110:07:13

He was in the remake of Porridge.

0:07:130:07:16

Have to say goodbye to eight of you.

0:07:160:07:19

I'm sorry. We will see you all tomorrow.

0:07:190:07:22

So now it's all about the right answer.

0:07:240:07:27

A point to everyone who went for Jason Watkins.

0:07:330:07:36

Which means that, after those five questions,

0:07:360:07:40

just three people are on five points.

0:07:400:07:45

Penny, Dan and Deb.

0:07:450:07:50

APPLAUSE

0:07:500:07:52

Now, I know you three are firm friends.

0:07:540:07:57

But only one of you can be the winner of this round,

0:07:580:08:00

and that was the person who locked in their answers the fastest.

0:08:000:08:04

And that person, by a hair,

0:08:040:08:08

was Penny!

0:08:080:08:09

Congratulations, Penny.

0:08:110:08:13

You have the first chance to grab a place in today's final.

0:08:130:08:16

-Hi, Penny.

-Hello again.

0:08:220:08:25

So, last time, of course, was the...

0:08:250:08:27

-What I like to call...

-The animal round.

0:08:270:08:30

The grid of death.

0:08:300:08:32

Where no-one knew the answer.

0:08:320:08:35

OK, Penny, this is your chance to put up to £500 into today's prize

0:08:350:08:41

pot and take a big step towards playing the £10,000 question.

0:08:410:08:46

I'm going to give you a choice of four topics.

0:08:460:08:48

It's the first time you've had a choice of four.

0:08:480:08:50

-Yes, it is.

-So that's good.

0:08:500:08:52

-Hopefully.

-The topics are...

0:08:520:08:53

Aha! Animals!

0:08:530:08:55

My eye is immediately drawn.

0:08:550:08:57

-Oh, no...

-Animals, Geography, Film, or Classical Music.

0:08:570:09:02

I am going to pick animals again.

0:09:040:09:06

Yes! You've got to conquer your fears, Penny.

0:09:060:09:10

OK.

0:09:100:09:11

Here's how it works. I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:09:110:09:15

They are...

0:09:150:09:17

And the first half of the question...

0:09:290:09:32

Which species of primate...

0:09:320:09:35

We know that five of those answers are impossible because they're not

0:09:370:09:41

-primates.

-Yeah.

-Each impossible answer you manage to eliminate

0:09:410:09:45

will add £100 to the prize port.

0:09:450:09:47

-Where would you like to start?

-I am definitely going to take out

0:09:470:09:50

pangolins. That's an anteater, on the endangered list.

0:09:500:09:56

You think it's a type of anteater and not a primate.

0:09:560:09:59

Is pangolin an impossible answer?

0:09:590:10:02

It is.

0:10:040:10:05

The pangolin is a scaly anteater.

0:10:050:10:08

Which next?

0:10:080:10:10

I'm going to go for drongo,

0:10:120:10:14

which sounds like it ought to be some kind of Australian thing.

0:10:140:10:18

Is drongo an impossible answer?

0:10:200:10:22

It is.

0:10:240:10:26

£200 in the prize pot.

0:10:260:10:28

-The drongo is a bird.

-OK.

0:10:280:10:31

I'm going to take out dugong.

0:10:350:10:39

Is dugong an impossible answer?

0:10:390:10:44

It is.

0:10:460:10:48

The dugong is a marine mammal, bit like a manatee.

0:10:480:10:51

Oh, right.

0:10:510:10:53

Now, it's more interesting.

0:10:530:10:55

Can I take out potto?

0:10:550:10:58

Is potto an impossible answer?

0:10:580:11:01

I'm afraid it isn't.

0:11:030:11:04

-Potto is a primate.

-Right, OK.

0:11:040:11:07

I'm going to take out sloth.

0:11:100:11:13

Is sloth an impossible answer?

0:11:140:11:19

It is.

0:11:230:11:24

Well done, Penny.

0:11:240:11:26

Sloth is a mammal but not a primate.

0:11:260:11:30

OK, Penny, we need to find out if you'll be playing for that money

0:11:300:11:34

in the final and the shot at the £10,000 question.

0:11:340:11:37

In a moment, I'm going to reveal the second half of the question

0:11:370:11:41

and I'll be looking for the right answer.

0:11:410:11:43

-OK.

-Find it, and that place in the final is yours.

0:11:430:11:46

If you give a wrong answer,

0:11:460:11:48

the next best player will have the chance

0:11:480:11:50

to steal your place in the final.

0:11:500:11:52

I can reveal that that was Deb.

0:11:520:11:57

PLAYERS: Oh!

0:11:570:11:59

There is one impossible answer remaining on the grid.

0:12:010:12:05

If you were to be tripped up by that,

0:12:050:12:08

-then sadly you would be eliminated from today's show.

-OK.

0:12:080:12:12

Let's reveal the full question.

0:12:120:12:15

Which species of primate is endemic to Madagascar?

0:12:150:12:20

I know that Madagascar has a lot of animals that are endemic to it,

0:12:240:12:28

like lemurs and so on.

0:12:280:12:30

I'm going to go aye-aye.

0:12:350:12:39

Is aye-aye the right answer?

0:12:390:12:42

For your first win on a grid.

0:12:420:12:47

It is!

0:12:500:12:51

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:12:510:12:53

We got there. We got there in the end.

0:12:530:12:55

I'm so sorry, Deb.

0:12:550:12:57

Aye-aye is a type of lemur.

0:12:570:12:59

The one impossible that you missed was the zorilla

0:12:590:13:04

which is a kind of polecat.

0:13:040:13:06

Congratulations though, Penny.

0:13:060:13:08

-You're through to the final.

-Thank you.

0:13:080:13:11

Still two places left in today's final alongside Penny.

0:13:150:13:19

Let's find out who's going to be claiming the next one.

0:13:190:13:22

Only 12 of you left, so your odds are getting better.

0:13:220:13:26

Are you all ready? PLAYERS: Yes.

0:13:260:13:28

Here is your first question.

0:13:280:13:30

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:13:450:13:47

Points to all of you who put that.

0:13:510:13:54

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:13:540:13:57

K is not a Roman numeral.

0:14:010:14:03

Anyone want to have a go at what MLV is?

0:14:030:14:06

1,055.

0:14:060:14:08

1,055.

0:14:080:14:09

Exactly right. Question number two.

0:14:090:14:12

The majority of you have gone for The Martian.

0:14:250:14:28

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:280:14:31

So a point to everyone who went for the Martian.

0:14:350:14:38

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:14:380:14:40

It is B, The Town.

0:14:420:14:43

That film didn't star Matt Damon.

0:14:430:14:46

Ben Affleck was in it,

0:14:460:14:48

which means you're all successfully through having avoided

0:14:480:14:52

that impossible answer.

0:14:520:14:54

Question number three.

0:14:540:14:56

Most of you going for Patagonian.

0:15:060:15:09

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:15:090:15:11

So a point to all of you.

0:15:160:15:18

Alan, you went for Mojave.

0:15:180:15:20

Hi, Rick, it's always geography with me.

0:15:200:15:23

It is. Do you think you might have given the impossible answer?

0:15:230:15:26

Definitely the impossible answer.

0:15:260:15:29

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:15:290:15:31

It is B, The Mojave, it's in North America.

0:15:340:15:37

Alan, we'll see you tomorrow.

0:15:370:15:39

-Bye.

-Bye.

0:15:390:15:40

The Atacama is on the Pacific coast of South America.

0:15:410:15:45

Question number four.

0:15:450:15:48

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:16:050:16:08

It's A, Tinie Tempah, a point to all of you.

0:16:090:16:13

-Jane?

-I happen to know Dizzee Rascal is a rapper and I know

0:16:150:16:19

Tinie Tempah's a rapper.

0:16:190:16:22

Don't know about Lil Wayne.

0:16:220:16:23

But I don't know if Dizzee Rascal's British.

0:16:230:16:27

I think I might be OK, I'm not sure.

0:16:270:16:30

All right. Let's find out if you are OK, Jane.

0:16:300:16:33

-OK.

-Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:16:330:16:35

Whoa!

0:16:360:16:37

It's Lil Wayne.

0:16:370:16:39

Dizzee Rascal IS British.

0:16:390:16:41

Lil Wayne is not, he's an American rapper.

0:16:410:16:44

Good old Dizzee Rascal.

0:16:440:16:47

You love Dizzee Rascal.

0:16:470:16:48

-He's bailed you out there, Jane.

-Oh, brill.

0:16:480:16:51

Question five.

0:16:510:16:53

So we just have Khrushchevs and Brezhnevs.

0:17:090:17:14

Let's reveal if either of those is the impossible answer.

0:17:140:17:18

No, the impossible answer was Nureyev,

0:17:200:17:23

he was of course a ballet dancer.

0:17:230:17:25

Kurtis and Anthony, both on four points.

0:17:250:17:28

You have gone for different answers.

0:17:280:17:31

-Have you got it right, Anthony?

-Yeah, I think so.

0:17:310:17:34

Brezhnev was in, I think, the '80s and it was,

0:17:340:17:37

Kennedy and Khrushchev,

0:17:370:17:39

knocking heads in the '60s.

0:17:390:17:42

OK. Just a single tear from Kurtis, there, Anthony.

0:17:420:17:46

You were going into the detailed description of why you were right.

0:17:460:17:49

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:17:500:17:52

It is Nikita Khrushchev.

0:17:540:17:55

All of you who put Khrushchev get a point.

0:17:550:17:59

Crucially, Anthony and Megan are in the lead on five points.

0:17:590:18:05

The times are extremely close.

0:18:050:18:08

But I can tell you that the quickest to lock in their answers

0:18:080:18:13

across the round was Megan.

0:18:130:18:16

Congratulations, Megan, you have the chance to grab a place

0:18:180:18:21

in today's final alongside Penny.

0:18:210:18:23

-Hello, Megan.

-Hello, Rick.

0:18:310:18:33

-How are you doing?

-Yeah, I'm OK.

0:18:330:18:35

Now, you did steal a place in the final before

0:18:350:18:38

and make it to the £10,000

0:18:380:18:40

question and win £1,200.

0:18:400:18:42

We're going to see if we can get you some more money now.

0:18:420:18:44

What's the next thing that we're going to get for the wedding?

0:18:440:18:47

I haven't saved enough money yet for my dress so maybe my dress.

0:18:470:18:50

OK, so you have the chance to add £500 to today's prize pot

0:18:500:18:55

which already stands at £400, thanks to Penny.

0:18:550:18:59

You can also take a huge step

0:18:590:19:01

towards playing the £10,000 question.

0:19:010:19:04

Of the three remaining topics, which do you fancy?

0:19:040:19:09

Geography, Film or Classical Music?

0:19:090:19:12

I'm going to go for film because my geography is absolutely terrible

0:19:130:19:17

and I've no idea about classical music.

0:19:170:19:19

Film it is. OK, here are your nine answers.

0:19:190:19:24

The first half of the question,

0:19:390:19:41

which film directed by Stephen Spielberg...?

0:19:410:19:45

Five of those answers are impossible

0:19:470:19:50

because they're not Stephen Spielberg films.

0:19:500:19:54

Each impossible answer that you manage to eliminate will add £100

0:19:540:19:57

to today's prize pot.

0:19:570:19:59

Where would you like to start?

0:19:590:20:02

I don't think Jerry Maguire was Stephen Spielberg

0:20:020:20:06

because it's more light-hearted, I could be completely wrong.

0:20:060:20:10

OK, let's lock in Jerry Maguire.

0:20:100:20:13

Is Jerry Maguire an impossible answer?

0:20:130:20:17

Yes, it is. £100 in the prize pot.

0:20:200:20:23

I'm going to go for Gangs Of New York.

0:20:240:20:27

Is Gangs Of New York an impossible answer?

0:20:270:20:31

It is. Directed by Martin Scorsese.

0:20:350:20:38

I'm going to go Apollo 13.

0:20:420:20:43

Is Apollo 13 an impossible answer?

0:20:430:20:46

It is.

0:20:490:20:50

It was directed by...?

0:20:500:20:53

-I don't know.

-Ron Howard.

0:20:530:20:55

-Oh, yeah.

-Yeah!

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:20:550:20:58

Two more impossible answers to find.

0:20:580:21:01

I'm going to go for...

0:21:020:21:05

..ET. I think might be an obvious Spielberg film though

0:21:060:21:10

now that I've just said that.

0:21:100:21:11

Do you want to lock it in or not?

0:21:110:21:13

No, actually... Yeah, I'll lock it in.

0:21:130:21:16

OK. Is ET an impossible answer?

0:21:160:21:19

I knew it.

0:21:230:21:25

Unfortunately not.

0:21:250:21:26

I'm going to go JFK. I'm drawn to it, I don't know why.

0:21:300:21:33

I just automatically assumed the airport in New York.

0:21:330:21:36

Because you don't think Stephen Spielberg

0:21:360:21:39

would have directed a film about an airport.

0:21:390:21:42

SHE LAUGHS

0:21:420:21:44

Is...

0:21:440:21:47

LAUGHTER

0:21:470:21:48

No, I know who JFK is!

0:21:480:21:51

Is JFK an impossible answer?

0:21:520:21:56

Yes, it is.

0:22:030:22:05

JFK was directed by Oliver Stone.

0:22:050:22:08

OK.

0:22:080:22:09

So we've put £400 into the prize pot.

0:22:090:22:13

Now let's see if you're going to be playing for the money which now

0:22:130:22:17

stands at £800 and for a shot at the £10,000 question in today's final.

0:22:170:22:22

I'm going to reveal the second half of the question

0:22:220:22:25

and I now need you to tell me the right answer.

0:22:250:22:28

Find it and you're in the final, you give a wrong answer,

0:22:280:22:32

the next best player, who's Anthony,

0:22:320:22:36

will get a chance to steal your place in the final.

0:22:360:22:40

There's one impossible remaining on the grid.

0:22:410:22:46

The full question.

0:22:470:22:49

Which film directed by Steven Spielberg

0:22:500:22:56

won him his first best director Oscar?

0:22:560:23:00

Phew...

0:23:010:23:03

I'm trying to think which film is possibly the oldest film.

0:23:030:23:06

Oh, gosh. I'm going to go Schindler's List.

0:23:090:23:12

I don't know.

0:23:120:23:14

Is Schindler's List the right answer?

0:23:150:23:20

-It is!

-Yay!

0:23:220:23:25

Total guess.

0:23:270:23:29

A really good guess.

0:23:290:23:31

The impossible answer that you missed was The Blues Brothers

0:23:310:23:34

which is directed by John Landis.

0:23:340:23:37

Megan, congratulations, you're through to the final!

0:23:370:23:39

So, just one place left in today's final alongside Penny and Megan.

0:23:480:23:53

Let's see who's going to be.

0:23:530:23:55

There's only ten of you surviving now.

0:23:550:23:57

Here are your five multiple-choice questions starting with...

0:23:570:24:00

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:24:160:24:19

A point to all of you who went for Edberg.

0:24:220:24:26

Helen.

0:24:260:24:28

Yeah, I really didn't know.

0:24:280:24:30

It seemed like a familiar name but as soon as I pressed it,

0:24:300:24:32

I turned and saw all these Cs.

0:24:320:24:35

-I just thought, "Oh, God".

-Horrible feeling.

0:24:350:24:37

This hasn't been my game today.

0:24:370:24:40

-Guy?

-Hi, Rick.

0:24:400:24:42

You went for Mats Wilander.

0:24:420:24:44

I did. But I really haven't got a clue,

0:24:440:24:46

I just don't have a clue on it.

0:24:460:24:48

OK.

0:24:480:24:50

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:24:500:24:53

It's A, Lars Ulrich.

0:24:560:24:58

He may be familiar to you because he's the drummer in the Metallica.

0:24:590:25:02

SURPRISED MUTTERING

0:25:020:25:04

Helen, not a great day for you today,

0:25:040:25:07

-I'm sorry, we'll see you tomorrow.

-Bye.

0:25:070:25:10

Question number two.

0:25:120:25:14

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:25:290:25:32

A point to everyone who went for Chesterfield. Just three of you.

0:25:360:25:40

-Richard.

-Initially I was wanting to go for Chesterfield,

0:25:400:25:44

geographically, I'm trying to place them in my mind map.

0:25:440:25:47

Oh, yeah.

0:25:470:25:49

I thought Macclesfield was a wee bit too high up

0:25:490:25:52

so I ended up plumbing for Buxton.

0:25:520:25:54

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:25:540:25:57

Macclesfield is in Cheshire.

0:26:020:26:04

Kurtis and Dan, we'll have to see you tomorrow.

0:26:040:26:07

Just seven remaining as we move on to question three.

0:26:100:26:15

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:26:300:26:32

So four of you get a point.

0:26:360:26:38

-Deb.

-Brer Rabbit is not a Beatrix Potter character,

0:26:390:26:44

I'm sure of that so I've got the wrong answer

0:26:440:26:48

by putting Pigling Bland, but I think I've played safe.

0:26:480:26:53

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:26:530:26:57

It is A, Brer Rabbit, a character from American folklore.

0:26:580:27:04

Sorry, Richard and Guy, we'll see you tomorrow.

0:27:040:27:07

Just five left as we move onto question four.

0:27:090:27:13

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:27:280:27:30

It is PDSA, a point to everyone who put that.

0:27:340:27:38

Stands for People's Dispensary for Sick Animals.

0:27:380:27:42

-Jo?

-Well, I was going,

0:27:420:27:45

"avoid RoSPA, avoid RoSPA,

0:27:450:27:47

"press PETA," which is only about 20 years old.

0:27:470:27:51

You avoided RoSPA which you think is the impossible answer.

0:27:510:27:54

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:27:540:27:56

Yes, that's the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

0:27:580:28:02

So you did manage to avoid that.

0:28:020:28:04

You were right about PETA, Jo, only founded in 1980,

0:28:040:28:07

stands for People for the Ethical Treatment Of Animals.

0:28:070:28:12

Final question.

0:28:120:28:13

Let's first reveal the impossible answer.

0:28:290:28:32

There's no Nobel Prize for biology.

0:28:370:28:40

-See you both tomorrow.

-Thank you.

0:28:400:28:42

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:28:450:28:48

So a point to everyone.

0:28:520:28:54

It takes Jo to three,

0:28:540:28:56

Jane to four, but Anthony is the winner with five points.

0:28:560:28:59

Congratulations, you have the chance to grab the last place

0:29:010:29:04

in today's final alongside Penny and Megan.

0:29:040:29:07

Anthony, you had a wonderful first day last week,

0:29:120:29:17

got to the final,

0:29:170:29:18

narrowly beaten in the final by Gerard.

0:29:180:29:21

Gerard's not here any more,

0:29:210:29:22

Gerard took £10,000 home yesterday of course.

0:29:220:29:25

So, things should be looking good for you.

0:29:250:29:27

-Hopefully.

-You can add another £500 to today's prize pot which already

0:29:270:29:31

stands at £800 thanks to Penny and Megan.

0:29:310:29:34

You'll also be a step closer towards playing the £10,000 question.

0:29:340:29:38

Of the remaining topics,

0:29:380:29:40

we've got Geography and Classical Music.

0:29:400:29:45

Well, I'm going to have to choose the lesser of the two evils for me

0:29:450:29:48

-so I'm going to have to go for Geography.

-Geography.

0:29:480:29:51

Your nine answers are...

0:29:510:29:53

The first half of the question -

0:30:040:30:07

Which Scottish city...

0:30:070:30:10

Happy with what you're seeing up there?

0:30:100:30:12

A little bit, yeah.

0:30:120:30:14

They all seem familiar

0:30:140:30:17

from the football classifieds.

0:30:170:30:19

Five of those are impossible.

0:30:190:30:21

They couldn't possibly be the answers to a question like that

0:30:210:30:24

-because they're not Scottish cities.

-OK.

0:30:240:30:26

Each one that you do find will add £100 to today's prize pot.

0:30:260:30:30

-OK.

-Where would you like to start?

0:30:300:30:33

Let's start with Dumbarton.

0:30:340:30:37

Any thoughts on Dumbarton?

0:30:370:30:39

Yeah, I think it's in a city but it's not a city.

0:30:390:30:43

Is Dumbarton an impossible answer?

0:30:430:30:46

Yes, it is. Where next?

0:30:480:30:50

Melrose.

0:30:520:30:54

What are your thoughts on Melrose?

0:30:540:30:56

It just doesn't jump out to me as being a city itself.

0:30:560:30:59

OK.

0:30:590:31:01

Is Melrose an impossible answer?

0:31:010:31:03

Yes, it is. £200 added to the prize pot.

0:31:060:31:09

Melrose not a city.

0:31:090:31:10

Fort William.

0:31:150:31:17

Is Fort William an impossible answer?

0:31:180:31:20

Yes, it is. £300 added to the prize pot.

0:31:230:31:26

Fort William is not a city.

0:31:260:31:27

Where next?

0:31:270:31:29

Dumfries is calling out to me.

0:31:310:31:34

Dumfries is calling out to you so let's get locked in.

0:31:350:31:38

Is Dumfries an impossible answer?

0:31:380:31:41

It is. Four from four.

0:31:440:31:46

One more impossible to eliminate.

0:31:460:31:48

Definitely know three cities there.

0:31:500:31:52

Which is the one it isn't?

0:31:530:31:55

I'm going to go for...

0:31:550:31:58

..Paisley.

0:32:010:32:03

Is Paisley an impossible answer?

0:32:030:32:06

It is.

0:32:080:32:10

£500 put in the prize pot.

0:32:100:32:13

It now stands at £1,300,

0:32:130:32:16

but are you going to be playing for that money and the shot

0:32:160:32:19

at the £10,000 question in today's final?

0:32:190:32:23

You need to give me the right answer when I reveal the whole question.

0:32:230:32:28

The next best player from that round, who was Jane...

0:32:280:32:32

-JANE LAUGHS

-Amazing.

0:32:320:32:35

She's so ready to steal your place in the final,

0:32:350:32:38

Anthony, if you give a wrong answer.

0:32:380:32:40

-OK.

-There are no impossibles left.

0:32:400:32:42

The full question is -

0:32:430:32:45

Which Scottish city is situated on the River Forth?

0:32:450:32:51

I'm going to take a punt

0:32:510:32:54

at Dundee.

0:32:540:32:58

OK.

0:32:580:32:59

Is Dundee the right answer?

0:32:590:33:03

It isn't, I'm afraid.

0:33:070:33:10

That's a wrong answer.

0:33:100:33:11

That means Jane, we throw it to you.

0:33:110:33:15

JANE GASPS

0:33:150:33:16

Although I've been to Inverness, I'm not sure if it's on a river or not

0:33:160:33:20

and I don't know about Stirling

0:33:200:33:23

and because the salmon run goes through Perth...

0:33:230:33:27

Oh!

0:33:270:33:29

..I'm going to say Perth.

0:33:300:33:33

-You're going to take Perth?

-Yep.

0:33:330:33:35

Is Perth situated on the River Forth?

0:33:350:33:40

Never mind, never mind.

0:33:440:33:47

It's not, I'm afraid, Jane.

0:33:470:33:49

Perth is situated on the Tay.

0:33:490:33:50

-Never mind.

-The right answer is Stirling.

0:33:500:33:54

Well done, Anthony.

0:33:540:33:56

-Thank you, Jane, unlucky, sorry.

-You're welcome.

0:33:560:33:58

Anthony, you've had a lucky escape.

0:33:580:34:00

-Take your place in the final.

-Thank you.

0:34:000:34:03

For the rest of you, I'm afraid that victory today proved impossible

0:34:090:34:13

but we'll see you all tomorrow.

0:34:130:34:15

For Penny, Megan and Anthony, it's time for the final.

0:34:160:34:20

Penny, Megan and Anthony,

0:34:260:34:28

there's £1,300 in today's prize pot but only one of you can win that

0:34:280:34:34

money and get the chance to face the £10,000 question.

0:34:340:34:38

You each start with ten lives.

0:34:380:34:41

Questions are on the buzzer.

0:34:430:34:44

Buzz and get one right, you knock a life off both of your opponents.

0:34:440:34:48

Buzz and get one wrong, and you lose one of your own lives.

0:34:480:34:52

However, some of the questions are impossible.

0:34:520:34:55

For example, "What's the 28th letter of the English alphabet?".

0:34:550:34:59

There are only 26 letters in the English alphabet

0:34:590:35:01

so that's an impossible question.

0:35:010:35:04

If you think you'd spotted one of those,

0:35:040:35:06

all you have to do is buzz in and say impossible.

0:35:060:35:10

That will mean double trouble for both of your opponents

0:35:100:35:13

as they will lose two lives each.

0:35:130:35:16

But be warned, if you say a question is impossible

0:35:160:35:19

when it's not or give any other answer to an impossible question,

0:35:190:35:23

it is you who will be losing the two lives.

0:35:230:35:26

Best of luck to all of you.

0:35:260:35:29

Are you ready? PLAYERS: Yes.

0:35:290:35:31

A deficiency of which vitamin causes scurvy?

0:35:310:35:35

Anthony.

0:35:350:35:36

-C.

-It is vitamin C, ascorbic acid.

0:35:360:35:39

A life from Penny and Megan.

0:35:390:35:41

Which Adele song was the theme tune to the 20...

0:35:420:35:46

Anthony.

0:35:460:35:47

-Skyfall.

-Unfortunately you didn't let me finish.

0:35:470:35:50

To the 2015 James Bond film Spectre, which is impossible.

0:35:500:35:54

Sam Smith wrote that one.

0:35:540:35:56

Adele did write the tune for Skyfall which was the previous film,

0:35:560:36:00

you lose two lives, Anthony.

0:36:000:36:02

Who became editor of Private Eye in 1986?

0:36:040:36:09

Anthony.

0:36:090:36:10

-Ian Hislop.

-It is Ian Hislop.

0:36:100:36:12

In and around which fictional village

0:36:130:36:16

is Radio 4's The Archers set?

0:36:160:36:18

-Penny.

-Ambleside.

0:36:200:36:22

I mean, close but not right.

0:36:220:36:24

Ambridge. You lose a life, Penny.

0:36:240:36:26

Which former England rugby international

It was worth a guess.

0:38:060:38:07

It was worth a gamble.

0:38:070:38:09

I was going to say when spelling the word ecstasy which letter comes

0:38:090:38:12

immediately after the C?

0:38:120:38:15

It's S. It's not impossible.

0:38:150:38:17

Penny, I'm afraid you lose your remaining life

0:38:170:38:20

Megan, you're just about still in this.

0:39:250:39:27

Well done, Anthony, time to face the £10,000 question.

0:39:270:39:30

-Anthony.

-Hello.

-You are today's winner with £1,300 but you could be

0:39:380:39:43

leaving with a whole lot more if you can answer the £10,000 question.

0:39:430:39:48

Here's how it works. I'm going to show you nine answers

0:39:480:39:52

and then ask a question. Three of the nine answers are correct.

0:39:520:39:56

If you can find them all within ten seconds, you win that £10,000.

0:39:560:40:02

That's the good news.

0:40:020:40:03

The less good news is that three of those answers are wrong.

0:40:030:40:06

Pick any of those and you won't to win the £10,000.

0:40:060:40:10

The bad news is that three of those nine answers are impossible.

0:40:100:40:15

Give me any of those answers and you'll lose the £1,300 as well.

0:40:150:40:20

OK, here it is, today's £10,000 question.

0:40:200:40:24

I hope it has fallen well for you.

0:40:240:40:27

It has, it's sport.

0:40:270:40:30

Good luck.

0:40:300:40:32

Here are your nine answers.

0:40:320:40:35

You're looking for England football

0:40:470:40:51

managers at World Cup finals tournaments.

0:40:510:40:54

Your time starts now.

0:40:540:40:56

Bobby Robson. Glenn Hoddle.

0:40:560:40:59

Sven-Goran Eriksson.

0:40:590:41:01

You've locked in your answers nice and quickly.

0:41:070:41:10

-You must've been pleased when football came up, Anthony?

-Yeah.

0:41:100:41:15

But also you're a little bit wary because if you get it wrong,

0:41:150:41:18

you're going to get ruined by all your mates.

0:41:180:41:21

-And you wouldn't have the money.

-Exactly.

0:41:210:41:23

So, was Bobby Robson an England manager at a World Cup finals?

0:41:230:41:30

He did.

0:41:350:41:36

One down, two to go.

0:41:370:41:39

Was Glenn Hoddle an England football manager at a World Cup finals?

0:41:420:41:48

Yes. He was.

0:41:530:41:56

Now just one answer away from £10,000.

0:41:570:42:03

If Sven-Goran Eriksson was an England manager

0:42:040:42:08

at a World Cup finals...

0:42:080:42:10

..all of that money is going to come cascading...

0:42:130:42:18

..out of the exclamation mark.

0:42:190:42:22

Is Sven-Goran Eriksson the right answer?

0:42:220:42:27

It is!

0:42:340:42:35

CHEERING

0:42:350:42:37

It's the right answer!

0:42:370:42:39

Take a look at your money!

0:42:440:42:47

£10,000, Anthony.

0:42:470:42:50

It's all there. Counted it myself.

0:42:520:42:55

The impossibles you correctly avoided, Brian Clough,

0:42:560:43:00

Bill Shankly and Matt Busby have never managed England.

0:43:000:43:04

So Anthony leaves the show with £10,000,

0:43:050:43:08

this has been !mpossible,

0:43:080:43:10

the quiz where anything is possible.

0:43:100:43:11

See you next time. Goodbye!

0:43:110:43:13
