Hello, I'm Rick Edwards, and this is !mpossible, day 15.

0:00:020:00:05

APPLAUSE

0:00:050:00:07

Welcome to !mpossible,

0:00:180:00:19

the quiz where the questions aren't impossible,

0:00:190:00:21

but some of the answers always are.

0:00:210:00:23

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

0:00:230:00:26

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:260:00:29

The right answer is Wayne Rooney,

0:00:350:00:38

the wrong answer is Steven Gerrard,

0:00:380:00:40

but Gareth Bale is a Welsh footballer,

0:00:400:00:42

not English, so that's the impossible answer.

0:00:420:00:45

Hoping to get lots of right answers,

0:00:450:00:47

whilst dodging those naughty impossible answers, our 30 players.

0:00:470:00:50

Hello, players!

0:00:500:00:52

-ALL:

-Hello!

0:00:520:00:54

They've been with us throughout the series,

0:00:540:00:56

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

0:00:560:01:01

-ALL:

-Whoo!

0:01:010:01:02

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

0:01:020:01:05

-ALL:

-Whoo!

0:01:050:01:07

Of course they're wooing,

0:01:070:01:08

because this exclamation mark is filled with

0:01:080:01:12

10,000 shimmering pound coins.

0:01:120:01:14

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

0:01:140:01:19

And here it is.

0:01:190:01:20

Today's £10,000 question.

0:01:200:01:23

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

0:01:230:01:27

Now, guys, it's the last show!

0:01:290:01:32

-ALL:

-Aww!

0:01:320:01:33

Aww!

0:01:330:01:35

We have had four winners of £10,000.

0:01:350:01:40

I would love to go out with another winner on this show.

0:01:400:01:44

Are you all ready?

0:01:440:01:46

-ALL:

-Yes!

0:01:460:01:47

Let's crack on.

0:01:470:01:49

You'll face five multiple-choice questions,

0:01:490:01:51

each with three answers.

0:01:510:01:53

The right answer scores you a point, the wrong answer scores you nothing.

0:01:530:01:57

But if you choose the impossible answer...

0:01:570:01:59

Disaster!

0:02:000:02:02

..that immediately knocks you out of today's show.

0:02:020:02:05

After five questions, the highest scorer

0:02:050:02:07

gets the first chance to bag a place in today's final.

0:02:070:02:11

-Are you ready? ALL:

-Yes!

0:02:110:02:14

Good luck, everyone. Here's your first question.

0:02:140:02:16

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:02:360:02:38

It's A, Alan Turing.

0:02:400:02:42

A point to all of you that put that.

0:02:420:02:44

Annie?

0:02:440:02:45

I'm not a Benedict Cumberbatch fan at all,

0:02:450:02:48

I don't know what the fuss

0:02:480:02:49

-is about him.

-LAUGHTER

0:02:490:02:51

I just don't get it, I'm sorry.

0:02:510:02:52

Would never have Oscar nominated him if you were in charge, Annie?

0:02:520:02:55

No, not at all.

0:02:550:02:56

Let's have a look at what the impossible answer is.

0:02:560:02:59

It's C, George Smiley, who is a fictional character,

0:03:010:03:05

created by John le Carre.

0:03:050:03:07

Moving on to question number two.

0:03:070:03:09

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:03:280:03:30

It is Kepi. A point to all of you who went for C.

0:03:320:03:36

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:03:360:03:39

Canard, which is French for "duck".

0:03:420:03:46

Jo, Chris and Helen - I have to say goodbye to you at this point.

0:03:460:03:51

But thank you very much for playing !mpossible.

0:03:510:03:54

-AUDIENCE:

-Aw!

0:03:540:03:56

Question number three.

0:03:570:03:59

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:04:170:04:19

It's B, John Keats.

0:04:210:04:23

A point to everyone who put that.

0:04:230:04:26

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:260:04:29

It's C, WH Auden.

0:04:320:04:35

He was born in the 20th century.

0:04:350:04:37

Kerry, I'm sorry, we'll have to say goodbye.

0:04:370:04:40

Thank you for playing !mpossible.

0:04:400:04:42

Moving on to question number four.

0:04:430:04:46

You assume that there is wisdom in crowds.

0:05:020:05:05

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:05:050:05:06

That assumption is wrong.

0:05:090:05:11

The correct answer is B, Kangaroo.

0:05:110:05:15

So, just Ray, Dan

0:05:150:05:17

and Parin get a point.

0:05:170:05:19

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:05:190:05:22

It's C, springbok.

0:05:250:05:28

The springbok is not a marsupial,

0:05:280:05:30

so we are going to have to say goodbye to you, I'm afraid, Megan.

0:05:300:05:33

-And thank you for playing !mpossible.

-Thanks.

0:05:330:05:36

I think those of you who went for wallaby

0:05:370:05:39

were almost certainly thinking

0:05:390:05:41

-of the rugby union team.

-Oh.

0:05:410:05:44

OK, question five.

0:05:440:05:47

Let's reveal the impossible answer first.

0:06:050:06:08

It's C, San Jose.

0:06:130:06:16

That is the capital of Costa Rica,

0:06:160:06:19

which is a Central American country.

0:06:190:06:22

And that means we have to say goodbye

0:06:220:06:25

to some of my favourite players.

0:06:250:06:27

Craig, Bim and Vinessa.

0:06:280:06:32

it's been an absolute joy having you play.

0:06:320:06:35

Thank you for taking part in !mpossible.

0:06:350:06:37

-Thank you!

-It's been a pleasure!

0:06:370:06:39

-Thank you, Bim.

-Aww!

-Pleasure's all mine.

0:06:390:06:41

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:06:430:06:46

It's A, Brasilia.

0:06:480:06:51

Well done if you went for Brasilia, you get a point.

0:06:510:06:55

And that means that we end the round

0:06:550:06:57

with just two people on five points.

0:06:570:07:02

And they are Dan and Parin.

0:07:020:07:05

The quickest player to lock in their answers across the round...

0:07:070:07:11

..was Dan!

0:07:130:07:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:140:07:16

Dan, congratulations,

0:07:230:07:25

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

0:07:250:07:28

APPLAUSE

0:07:280:07:30

So, Dan,

0:07:340:07:35

second time down doing a grid.

0:07:350:07:38

This is your chance to put up to £500 into todays's prize pot.

0:07:380:07:42

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

0:07:420:07:45

They are...

0:07:450:07:47

-Yeah, I'm going to go with Food and Drink, please.

-OK.

0:07:510:07:54

So, Food and Drink it is.

0:07:540:07:56

I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:07:560:07:59

And they are...

0:07:590:08:02

And the first half of the question...

0:08:170:08:19

Five of those answers are impossible,

0:08:250:08:28

because they're not Italian bread.

0:08:280:08:31

Your first job is to find those impossible answers

0:08:310:08:34

and get rid of them.

0:08:340:08:36

-Where would you like to start?

-I'll start with tortilla, if I may.

0:08:360:08:40

Let's lock in tortilla.

0:08:400:08:41

Is tortilla an impossible answer?

0:08:430:08:46

APPLAUSE

0:08:470:08:49

Yes, it is.

0:08:510:08:53

It is from Mexico.

0:08:530:08:55

£100 in the prize pot, good start.

0:08:550:08:57

Uh, right, can I go with roti next, please?

0:08:590:09:02

Of course, roti, let's lock roti in.

0:09:020:09:05

What's roti?

0:09:050:09:07

I think it's an Indian kind of flatbread, or even a wrap.

0:09:070:09:09

That kind of thing.

0:09:090:09:11

OK.

0:09:110:09:13

Is roti an impossible answer?

0:09:130:09:15

APPLAUSE

0:09:180:09:19

£200 in the prize pot.

0:09:190:09:22

Roti is an Indian bread.

0:09:220:09:24

-Where next?

-Poppadom, please.

0:09:240:09:26

Let's lock in poppadom.

0:09:270:09:29

Is poppadom an impossible answer?

0:09:300:09:32

APPLAUSE

0:09:360:09:39

India. £300 in the prize pot.

0:09:390:09:42

I'll go with brioche next, please.

0:09:420:09:44

Brioche, let's lock brioche in.

0:09:440:09:47

Where would you find brioche?

0:09:470:09:49

France.

0:09:490:09:50

Dan thinks the brioche is French.

0:09:500:09:53

Is it an impossible answer?

0:09:530:09:55

APPLAUSE

0:09:570:09:59

It is.

0:09:590:10:01

And it is from France.

0:10:010:10:03

One more impossible answer to knock out for the full £500

0:10:030:10:07

in the prize pot.

0:10:070:10:09

I'm going to go with bazlama, if I may, please.

0:10:090:10:12

Let's lock in bazlama.

0:10:120:10:14

Any idea where bazlama is from?

0:10:150:10:17

I don't have an idea where it's from but, looking at the board,

0:10:170:10:19

I think it's the one that's least Italian-sounding.

0:10:190:10:22

-So, on that logic, that's why I've picked it.

-OK.

0:10:220:10:25

Is bazlama an impossible answer?

0:10:250:10:28

It is! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:10:310:10:33

£500 into today's prize pot.

0:10:330:10:36

Bazlama is from Turkey.

0:10:360:10:39

But are you going to be playing for that money

0:10:390:10:42

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

0:10:420:10:47

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

0:10:470:10:50

We're now looking for the right answer.

0:10:500:10:52

If you find it, a place in the final is yours.

0:10:520:10:55

If you give me a wrong answer,

0:10:550:10:57

the next-best player

0:10:570:10:59

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

0:10:590:11:01

As you probably know,

0:11:010:11:03

that was Parin.

0:11:030:11:04

Let's reveal the full question.

0:11:070:11:09

I'm going to go with my instinct here, it's the first thing

0:11:190:11:21

that's came into my head - it's ciabatta.

0:11:210:11:24

-OK.

-I think, I think.

0:11:240:11:26

let's lock in ciabatta.

0:11:260:11:29

Is ciabatta the right answer?

0:11:300:11:33

It is!

0:11:350:11:37

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:11:370:11:38

Well done, Dan.

0:11:380:11:40

That is the correct answer.

0:11:400:11:42

Congratulations, Dan. Take your place in the final!

0:11:440:11:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:11:460:11:48

Still two places left in today's final, alongside Dan.

0:11:530:11:58

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

0:11:580:12:01

Same deal as before, five multiple-choice questions,

0:12:010:12:04

here is your first question.

0:12:040:12:06

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:12:240:12:26

It is A, Lisa Simpson, a point to all of you.

0:12:280:12:31

The rest of you, bar one, have gone with Marge Simpson.

0:12:320:12:36

Linda...

0:12:370:12:39

you went with Jessica Simpson?

0:12:390:12:41

Yeah, unfortunately, I don't watch The Simpsons.

0:12:410:12:44

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:12:440:12:46

It's B, Jessica Simpson.

0:12:500:12:52

-Bye!

-She's not a Simpsons character,

0:12:520:12:55

she's an American singer and actress.

0:12:550:12:57

-Linda, it's been a pleasure having you on the show...

-Thank you.

0:12:570:13:01

..but I have to say goodbye.

0:13:010:13:02

-Thank you very much for playing !mpossible.

-Thank you. Bye.

0:13:020:13:05

Question number two.

0:13:070:13:08

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:13:260:13:28

It's Dan Quayle.

0:13:300:13:32

A point to all of you.

0:13:320:13:34

-Ray?

-Yeah, both A and B were vice-presidents,

0:13:340:13:38

Sarah Palin actually run for presidency,

0:13:380:13:40

so she wouldn't have been a vice-president.

0:13:400:13:43

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:13:430:13:45

It is C, Sarah Palin.

0:13:490:13:51

She was never a vice-president,

0:13:510:13:53

although she did run for it on the John McCain ticket.

0:13:530:13:57

Jane, I'm sorry,

0:13:570:13:59

that means we have to say goodbye. I'm sad to see you go.

0:13:590:14:02

-Thank you for playing !mpossible.

-Thank you so much.

0:14:020:14:05

Thanks, Jane.

0:14:050:14:06

Question number three.

0:14:080:14:10

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:260:14:28

It's C, Kiwi.

0:14:300:14:32

So, just six of you get a point there.

0:14:320:14:35

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:14:350:14:38

It's A, echidna.

0:14:410:14:42

So, well done for avoiding it.

0:14:420:14:44

The echidna is a spiny, egg-laying mammal.

0:14:440:14:48

Moving on to question number four.

0:14:480:14:50

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:15:090:15:10

It's C, Paint It Black.

0:15:130:15:16

So, just five of you getting a point there.

0:15:160:15:19

It does mean that a few of you, or a lot of you,

0:15:210:15:23

have given the impossible answer.

0:15:230:15:26

Annie, you went for B, My Generation?

0:15:260:15:29

Yeah. I'd like to say goodbye to you now, Rick.

0:15:290:15:31

-Oh, would you?

-Yeah.

-How come?

0:15:310:15:33

Because Jumpin' Jack Flash was the Rolling Stones.

0:15:330:15:37

Oh, dear.

0:15:390:15:41

So, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:15:410:15:44

It is B, My Generation.

0:15:480:15:51

My Generation was a number two for The Who.

0:15:510:15:54

-The Who.

-And that means that Annie, Anne and Elliott,

0:15:540:15:59

we're going to have to say goodbye.

0:15:590:16:01

I hope you've enjoyed yourselves,

0:16:010:16:03

thank you very much for playing !mpossible.

0:16:030:16:05

Question number five.

0:16:070:16:09

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:16:310:16:34

It's B, Atul Kochhar,

0:16:400:16:43

who is a Michelin-starred chef.

0:16:430:16:45

Deb, Sarah, Simon, Ray and Tracy -

0:16:460:16:51

thank you very much to all of you for playing !mpossible.

0:16:510:16:54

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:16:540:16:56

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:16:580:17:02

It's A, Satya Nadella.

0:17:050:17:08

Richard and Guy,

0:17:100:17:12

along with everyone else who went for A, you get a point.

0:17:120:17:16

That takes both of you to five points.

0:17:170:17:20

I can reveal that the quickest to lock in their answers

0:17:220:17:24

over the round...

0:17:240:17:26

..was Guy!

0:17:270:17:29

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:17:290:17:31

Congratulations, you have the chance to grab

0:17:350:17:40

a place in today's final alongside Dan.

0:17:400:17:43

APPLAUSE

0:17:430:17:44

Guy...

0:17:490:17:52

I didn't think I was going to see you down here.

0:17:520:17:54

Finally, you've got through to a grid.

0:17:540:17:57

-How does it feel?

-Fantastic!

0:17:570:17:59

On the last day. I mean, just, I've been up in the gods up there,

0:17:590:18:03

and it's been...just saying, it's the last day,

0:18:030:18:05

it's been an absolutely fantastic experience.

0:18:050:18:07

And thanks to all of you, I've loved it.

0:18:070:18:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:100:18:11

You now have the chance to add another £500 to today's prize pot,

0:18:130:18:18

which already stands at £500, thanks to Dan.

0:18:180:18:22

Of the three remaining topics, which do you fancy?

0:18:220:18:25

-Let's go for History.

-OK.

0:18:320:18:34

I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:18:340:18:36

Here they are.

0:18:380:18:39

The first half of the question...

0:18:540:18:56

Five of those answers are impossible,

0:19:010:19:03

because they're not 19th-century battles.

0:19:030:19:06

You need to find those impossible answers

0:19:060:19:09

-and banish them into oblivion, Guy.

-OK.

0:19:090:19:12

Where would you like to start?

0:19:120:19:15

Let's go for Alma.

0:19:150:19:17

Let's lock Alma in.

0:19:170:19:19

Is Alma

0:19:200:19:22

an impossible answer?

0:19:220:19:24

It isn't. That is a 19th-century battle.

0:19:280:19:32

Next answer please, Guy?

0:19:330:19:35

I'm going to go for Blenheim, try Blenheim.

0:19:350:19:38

OK. Let's lock Blenheim in.

0:19:380:19:40

Is Blenheim an impossible answer?

0:19:420:19:44

It is! £100 in the prize pot. APPLAUSE

0:19:480:19:52

It was a battle in Bavaria in 1704.

0:19:520:19:56

Agincourt.

0:19:590:20:01

Is Agincourt an impossible answer?

0:20:010:20:03

APPLAUSE

0:20:070:20:09

It is.

0:20:090:20:10

A battle in 1415 in France, the 15th century.

0:20:100:20:15

£200 added to the prize pot. Going well now, Guy.

0:20:150:20:19

Naseby, please.

0:20:190:20:21

Is Naseby an impossible answer?

0:20:210:20:23

It is! APPLAUSE

0:20:270:20:28

£300 added to the prize pot.

0:20:280:20:32

Naseby was during the English Civil War, 1645.

0:20:330:20:38

Let's see if we can eliminate one more impossible.

0:20:380:20:41

-Solferino, please.

-OK, let's lock in Solferino.

0:20:410:20:45

Is Solferino an impossible answer?

0:20:460:20:49

-Ooh.

-It's not, I'm afraid.

0:20:520:20:54

-It is a 19th-century battle.

-OK.

0:20:540:20:57

You have, nevertheless, got the prize fund up to £800.

0:20:570:21:02

When I reveal the second half of the question,

0:21:020:21:04

you need to tell me the right answer.

0:21:040:21:08

Find it and you're in the final.

0:21:080:21:10

Give a wrong answer, and the next best player,

0:21:100:21:14

your mate, Richard...

0:21:140:21:16

..gets the chance to steal your place in the final.

0:21:190:21:22

The full question is...

0:21:220:21:23

Solferino was one that they took, wasn't it?

0:21:360:21:40

And then it was.

0:21:400:21:42

-I'm going to go with that.

-OK.

0:21:420:21:44

Please. Solferino.

0:21:440:21:46

Let's lock in Solferino.

0:21:480:21:50

Did Solferino take place on Belgian soil?

0:21:520:21:56

It took place on Italian soil, I'm afraid.

0:22:030:22:06

1859.

0:22:080:22:10

Richard!

0:22:110:22:12

Couldn't you have picked sport?

0:22:120:22:14

LAUGHTER

0:22:140:22:16

Sorry!

0:22:160:22:17

There are still two impossibles left on the grid.

0:22:210:22:24

I'm not going to go safe, I'm going to go Waterloo.

0:22:240:22:28

Let's lock in Waterloo.

0:22:280:22:29

Is Waterloo...

0:22:300:22:31

..the right answer?

0:22:340:22:35

Oh, my God!

0:22:390:22:40

APPLAUSE

0:22:400:22:42

It is.

0:22:420:22:43

Well done, Richard, you have nabbed Guy's place in the final.

0:22:440:22:49

I didn't know, mate.

0:22:500:22:52

The other impossible answers were Crecy,

0:22:530:22:57

1346 in France.

0:22:570:23:00

And the Somme, also in France,

0:23:000:23:02

much later, in 1916.

0:23:020:23:04

Bad luck, Guy, you're back in the pack for the next round.

0:23:040:23:08

Richard, you're going through to the final.

0:23:080:23:10

Coming to get you, Rick!

0:23:100:23:12

APPLAUSE

0:23:120:23:13

So, just one place left in today's final alongside Dan and Richard.

0:23:170:23:22

Let's see who it's going to be.

0:23:220:23:24

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

0:23:240:23:28

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:23:440:23:47

It's A, Matthew.

0:23:490:23:51

A point to Ash, Penny, Parin and Carole.

0:23:510:23:54

Elaine,

0:23:570:23:59

you're the only one who went for Peter.

0:23:590:24:02

# Matthew, Mark, Luke and John Next-door neighbour, carry on! #

0:24:030:24:07

LAUGHTER

0:24:070:24:09

I'm so silly, so sorry.

0:24:110:24:13

I don't even know why I did it.

0:24:130:24:15

-Well, you've got a lovely voice!

-Thank you!

0:24:150:24:18

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:24:190:24:21

It's C, Peter, not one of the Gospels of the New Testament.

0:24:240:24:30

That means, Elaine, I'm going to have to say goodbye.

0:24:300:24:32

Thank you very much for playing !mpossible.

0:24:320:24:34

The rest of you, let's carry on to question two.

0:24:370:24:40

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:24:570:25:00

It is B, Jennifer Saunders.

0:25:030:25:04

So, everyone except Kurtis gets a point.

0:25:040:25:08

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:25:080:25:11

I'm afraid it is C, Jenna Coleman.

0:25:150:25:18

Jenna Coleman, not in Absolutely Fabulous.

0:25:180:25:21

You've been a great player on !mpossible,

0:25:210:25:23

-thank you very much for playing.

-Thank you.

0:25:230:25:26

Let's go onto question three.

0:25:280:25:30

let's reveal the right answer.

0:25:470:25:49

It's C, The Prisoner Of Azkaban.

0:25:520:25:54

So, four of you get a point.

0:25:540:25:56

Carole, have you avoided the impossible answer?

0:25:570:26:00

Yes, because it's B, The Golden Compass.

0:26:000:26:03

But I don't do Harry Potter.

0:26:030:26:05

I don't do science, sport...

0:26:050:26:08

The list goes on, Carole! LAUGHTER

0:26:080:26:10

It just goes on forever.

0:26:100:26:12

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:26:120:26:15

It is B, The Golden Compass.

0:26:190:26:21

The Golden Compass is the 2007 film

0:26:210:26:25

that was based on Northern Lights,

0:26:250:26:27

which was the first book in

0:26:270:26:29

Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy.

0:26:290:26:32

All eight of you play on to question four.

0:26:320:26:35

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:26:500:26:53

It's B, Peterhouse.

0:26:550:26:57

So, Ash, Carole and Guy, you get a point.

0:26:580:27:01

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:27:030:27:05

The impossible answer is Christ Church.

0:27:090:27:13

There is no Christ Church College at Cambridge University.

0:27:130:27:17

That means we're going to have to say goodbye to Paul, Alan, Penny,

0:27:170:27:23

Parin and Carol Marie.

0:27:230:27:25

Thank you very much all of you,

0:27:250:27:27

for being fantastic players on !mpossible.

0:27:270:27:30

Goodbye.

0:27:300:27:31

Let's go to our last question.

0:27:320:27:35

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:27:530:27:56

It's A, Dead Man Walking.

0:27:590:28:02

I'm sorry, Carole, Dead Man Walking

0:28:020:28:05

-is not a film starring Tim Robbins.

-C'est la vie!

0:28:050:28:07

It's been a fabulous three weeks, thank you very much.

0:28:070:28:09

-I've enjoyed it.

-Thank you for being such a wonderful player...

0:28:090:28:13

-Thank you.

-..on !mpossible, goodbye.

-Thank you.

0:28:130:28:16

OK, let's reveal the right answer.

0:28:170:28:20

It's C, The Shawshank Redemption.

0:28:220:28:25

Meaning that both Guy and Ash get a point.

0:28:250:28:28

But the winner of that round, with five points, is Ash.

0:28:280:28:31

APPLAUSE

0:28:310:28:32

Wow!

0:28:320:28:34

Congratulations, Ash,

0:28:340:28:36

you have the chance to grab the last place

0:28:360:28:39

in the last final alongside Dan and Richard.

0:28:390:28:43

APPLAUSE

0:28:430:28:44

Ash, last time we were stood here,

0:28:480:28:50

you were playing the £10,000 question,

0:28:500:28:53

and you left with nothing.

0:28:530:28:55

Are you feeling ready to have another crack?

0:28:550:28:58

I'm still quite embarrassed about that, because I do drink

0:28:580:29:00

a lot of wine, so I really should have known better!

0:29:000:29:03

Well, you are going to have the opportunity to add another £500

0:29:030:29:08

to today's prize pot, which already stands at £800.

0:29:080:29:12

Of the remaining topics,

0:29:120:29:15

I know you don't really want either, but if I had to make you pick one,

0:29:150:29:19

which I do, which would you go for?

0:29:190:29:21

-Well, I guess it's...

-Sports or Music.

0:29:210:29:23

..really about which one I want to...

0:29:230:29:26

kind of embarrass myself least over.

0:29:260:29:28

I think I'm going to go for Classical Music!

0:29:300:29:33

OK, Classical Music it is.

0:29:330:29:36

I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:29:370:29:39

Here they come.

0:29:410:29:42

The first half of the question is...

0:29:560:29:58

Oh...OK.

0:30:040:30:06

Five of those answers are impossible,

0:30:060:30:08

because they aren't in Peter And The Wolf.

0:30:080:30:11

You need to find those impossible answers and get rid of them.

0:30:110:30:15

Where shall we start?

0:30:150:30:16

I think I'm going to go with badger.

0:30:170:30:19

-Badger.

-Yeah.

0:30:210:30:23

Is badger an impossible answer?

0:30:230:30:25

It is!

0:30:280:30:29

APPLAUSE

0:30:290:30:30

-£100 added to the prize pot.

-Wow!

0:30:300:30:32

There is no badger in Peter And The Wolf.

0:30:320:30:36

OK. I have a theory

0:30:360:30:38

that all, sort of, children's stories

0:30:380:30:40

and stuff start because there's an absence of

0:30:400:30:43

a competent mother and father.

0:30:430:30:45

I'm going to therefore go for mother.

0:30:450:30:48

Let's lock in mother.

0:30:480:30:50

Is mother an impossible answer?

0:30:520:30:54

-It is!

-See?

-APPLAUSE

0:30:570:30:59

£200 added to the prize pot.

0:30:590:31:01

-I'm impressed.

-Yeah, it's a good theory, I should write it down.

0:31:010:31:05

Erm...

0:31:050:31:06

I think a fox would be upstaged by a wolf, so I'm going to say fox.

0:31:100:31:15

OK, let's lock in fox.

0:31:150:31:17

Is fox an impossible answer?

0:31:180:31:20

It is. £300 added to the prize pot. APPLAUSE

0:31:250:31:29

You're demonstrating there is no need...

0:31:290:31:31

To have any knowledge of any description, yeah!

0:31:310:31:33

..to have any knowledge of Peter And The Wolf.

0:31:330:31:35

-You can just work it out from first principles.

-OK!

0:31:350:31:39

I'm going to go on the basis that bird is generic,

0:31:390:31:43

given that there's a duck and a goose in there.

0:31:430:31:46

Yeah, bird is too generic a category,

0:31:460:31:48

so I'm going to go for that.

0:31:480:31:50

OK. Let's lock in bird.

0:31:500:31:52

Is bird an impossible answer?

0:31:530:31:56

-It isn't.

-Ah.

0:31:590:32:00

-There is a bird in Peter And The Wolf.

-OK.

0:32:010:32:04

Prokofiev did not think bird was too generic.

0:32:040:32:08

Let's see if we can get rid of one more impossible answer.

0:32:080:32:12

Given that there's a duck and a goose,

0:32:120:32:15

in the same way that my reasoning went that if there was a wolf,

0:32:150:32:18

there probably wasn't a fox, I'm going to go for one of those two.

0:32:180:32:23

And I would prefer there to be a goose in the story,

0:32:230:32:26

so I'm going to go for duck.

0:32:260:32:28

Let's lock in duck.

0:32:280:32:31

Is duck is an impossible answer?

0:32:310:32:34

-Mmm.

-It isn't.

0:32:390:32:40

-There is a duck in Peter And The Wolf.

-OK.

0:32:400:32:44

Still, though, you've put £300 into the prize pot,

0:32:440:32:49

and it now stands at £1,100.

0:32:490:32:52

You need to give me the right answer when I reveal the second half

0:32:520:32:56

of the question. And, remember,

0:32:560:32:58

the next best player from that round was Guy.

0:32:580:33:01

Who is waiting to steal your place in the final

0:33:040:33:07

if you give a wrong answer.

0:33:070:33:09

The full question is...

0:33:090:33:11

Hmm.

0:33:240:33:26

Well, I don't want to go for an impossible answer.

0:33:260:33:29

But I'm going to go for duck.

0:33:300:33:31

Duck. Is duck the right answer?

0:33:330:33:36

Aw!

0:33:390:33:40

It's a wrong answer. Sorry, Ash.

0:33:400:33:44

Guy?

0:33:440:33:45

We throw it to you. Are you familiar with Peter And The Wolf?

0:33:450:33:49

I can hear it in my head, which helps,

0:33:490:33:51

because I haven't seen it since I was a kid.

0:33:510:33:54

So it's just a shot in the dark,

0:33:540:33:57

but if there was two I was going to choose,

0:33:570:33:59

it was the duck and the goose, so I'm just going to go for goose.

0:33:590:34:02

-OK, so lock in goose.

-Yes, please.

0:34:020:34:05

Is goose the right answer?

0:34:060:34:09

I'm afraid that is an impossible answer,

0:34:150:34:18

there is no goose in Peter And The Wolf.

0:34:180:34:22

Guy, you are eliminated.

0:34:220:34:24

-Thank you very much playing !mpossible.

-Thank you very much.

0:34:240:34:26

Ash, the right answer was cat.

0:34:280:34:32

The impossible answer that you missed was mayor.

0:34:340:34:38

Well done, Ash, you've grabbed the last place in today's final.

0:34:380:34:42

-Go and take it.

-Thank you.

0:34:420:34:44

APPLAUSE

0:34:440:34:45

Dan, Richard and Ash.

0:34:500:34:53

Now, Richard, this is your first final.

0:34:530:34:56

-It is, Rick.

-You've saved the best till last.

0:34:560:34:58

Remind us what you would spend the money on if you got the £10,000?

0:34:580:35:03

If I was fortunate enough to

0:35:030:35:05

get to that £10,000, um...

0:35:050:35:10

it will go on me daughter

0:35:100:35:12

-and me wife.

-AUDIENCE:

-Aww!

0:35:120:35:14

OK. There is £1,100 in today's prize pot.

0:35:140:35:20

But only one of you can win that money and get the chance to face

0:35:200:35:25

the £10,000 question.

0:35:250:35:27

You each start with ten lives.

0:35:270:35:30

Questions are on the buzzer, buzz and get one right,

0:35:320:35:35

and you knock a life off both of your opponents.

0:35:350:35:38

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

0:35:380:35:41

However, some of the questions are impossible.

0:35:410:35:44

If you think you've spotted one of those,

0:35:440:35:47

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

0:35:470:35:50

That will mean double trouble for your opponents,

0:35:500:35:53

because they will both lose two lives.

0:35:530:35:56

Be warned, though,

0:35:560:35:57

if you say a question is impossible when it isn't,

0:35:570:36:00

or give any other answer, it's you who will lose two lives.

0:36:000:36:05

Ready?

0:36:050:36:06

Which Conservative politician was appointed

0:36:080:36:12

UK foreign secretary in July...? Ash?

0:36:120:36:14

-Boris Johnson.

-In July 2016, it was Boris Johnson.

0:36:140:36:18

Richard and Dan lose a life.

0:36:180:36:19

Which 11th-century English battle

0:36:220:36:25

is depicted on the Bayeux Tapestry?

0:36:250:36:28

-Richard?

-The Battle of Hastings.

0:36:280:36:29

It is the Battle of Hastings.

0:36:290:36:31

In the children's TV series, Bagpuss, Professor Yaffle is a...?

0:36:330:36:38

Richard?

0:36:380:36:40

I'm sorry, Richard, you've taken too long.

0:36:430:36:46

Professor Yaffle is a wooden carving of which bird?

0:36:460:36:48

It's a woodpecker. You lose a life, Richard.

0:36:480:36:51

Ash, well done, it's time to face the £10,000 question.

0:39:460:39:50

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:39:500:39:53

So, Ash, for the second day in a row, here we are,

0:39:570:40:01

you're about to face another £10,000 question.

0:40:010:40:05

Here's how it's going to work.

0:40:050:40:06

I'm going to show you nine answers, and then ask a question.

0:40:060:40:10

Three of the nine answers are correct,

0:40:100:40:13

and if you can find them all within ten seconds,

0:40:130:40:15

you win that £10,000.

0:40:150:40:18

That is the good news.

0:40:180:40:20

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

0:40:200:40:23

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

0:40:230:40:27

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

0:40:270:40:31

Give me any of those answers, and you'll lose the £1,100 as well.

0:40:310:40:37

OK. Here it is.
