Hello, I'm Rick Edwards, and this is Impossible day five.

0:00:030:00:06

Welcome to Impossible, the quiz with the third dimension.

0:00:180:00:22

Most quiz shows have just right answers and wrong answers.

0:00:220:00:25

But here, we also have impossible answers.

0:00:250:00:28

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:280:00:30

The right answer is Bobby Moore,

0:00:380:00:40

the wrong answer is Bobby Charlton,

0:00:400:00:42

but Bobby Davro wasn't a member of that team, so couldn't possibly

0:00:420:00:45

be right. THAT is the impossible answer.

0:00:450:00:48

Hoping to get lots of right answers

0:00:480:00:50

whilst dodging those pesky impossible answers are 30 players.

0:00:500:00:54

Hello, players. PLAYERS: Hello, Rick!

0:00:540:00:56

Almost my favourite bit of the show, that.

0:00:560:00:58

They'll be with us throughout the series,

0:00:580:01:00

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

0:01:000:01:04

PLAYERS: Woo!

0:01:040:01:05

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

0:01:050:01:09

PLAYERS, LOUDER: Woo!

0:01:090:01:11

They're wooing because this exclamation mark

0:01:110:01:14

is filled with 10,000 shimmering pound coins,

0:01:140:01:17

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

0:01:170:01:22

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

0:01:230:01:27

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

0:01:270:01:31

Andrew, three finals.

0:01:330:01:36

Yesterday you made it to the ?10,000 question,

0:01:360:01:39

and then, heartbreakingly, gave an impossible answer.

0:01:390:01:43

Have you managed to pick yourself up?

0:01:430:01:45

I've decided I need to watch more British comedy

0:01:450:01:48

and less American drama.

0:01:480:01:50

Ah, so a little lifestyle change, a little tweak.

0:01:500:01:52

It's going to have to be, I think.

0:01:520:01:54

It can be a cruel game, but I'm sure we'll see you down here again

0:01:540:01:57

very soon, Andrew. Jane, when are we going to see you down here?

0:01:570:02:01

When I stop making silly mistakes.

0:02:010:02:04

Is that the problem? Is it silly mistakes?

0:02:040:02:06

Absolutely. Of course, I'm really brainy, but I'm stupid.

0:02:060:02:09

LAUGHTER Ah, the classic combination.

0:02:090:02:11

Absolutely. OK.

0:02:110:02:13

Kerry, how are you down here?

0:02:130:02:15

Well, I...

0:02:150:02:16

had a dream last night that, today, it's me.

0:02:160:02:19

Oh, really?

0:02:190:02:21

Yes. I won, it all came down, it was great.

0:02:210:02:23

People were cheering, the viewers were happy and I...

0:02:230:02:27

spent the money. What did you spend it on?

0:02:270:02:30

Some of the money to help my wife Laura learn to swim. OK.

0:02:300:02:33

And after she's learnt to swim,

0:02:330:02:35

a bit more to help her to learn to drive. Right.

0:02:350:02:38

And anything else, taking the family on a holiday to Jamaica.

0:02:400:02:44

She's watching now saying, "I don't want to swim!

0:02:440:02:47

"What's he talking about?" Very keen.

0:02:470:02:49

OK, we'll be getting to know all of our players

0:02:490:02:52

as the series progresses. But for now, let's crack on.

0:02:520:02:55

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

0:02:550:03:00

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

0:03:000:03:05

but if you choose the impossible answer...

0:03:050:03:07

AUTOMATED VOICE: Impossible!

0:03:070:03:08

No! ..that immediately knocks you out of today's show

0:03:080:03:11

and you'll have to try again tomorrow. Are you ready?

0:03:110:03:14

ALL: Yes! Good luck, everyone.

0:03:140:03:17

Here's your first question.

0:03:170:03:19

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:03:300:03:31

It's Tinky Winky.

0:03:340:03:35

So the majority of you get a point.

0:03:350:03:37

The remainder of you who went for Dipsy,

0:03:370:03:40

let's hope it isn't the impossible answer.

0:03:400:03:42

Annie? I know it's not Doodles.

0:03:420:03:45

OK. So I'm quite confident that I've slipped under the radar again

0:03:450:03:48

on this one.

0:03:480:03:49

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:03:490:03:51

Yes, the impossible answer is Doodles,

0:03:530:03:55

that's one of the dogs on the Tweenies.

0:03:550:03:58

Question number two.

0:03:580:03:59

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:04:110:04:12

It is a cello.

0:04:150:04:17

So a point for 28 of you.

0:04:170:04:20

Sarah, I think I heard you say,

0:04:200:04:22

"Oh, dear, I've pressed the wrong one."

0:04:220:04:25

I thought, "I know which the impossible answer is,

0:04:270:04:29

"don't press that." And guess which one I pressed?

0:04:290:04:32

And your fingers had other ideas.

0:04:320:04:33

Yeah. Right. "No, we'll take the impossible for this."

0:04:330:04:36

So you think banjo, probably impossible.

0:04:360:04:40

Gary?

0:04:400:04:41

Yeah, it can't be banjo.

0:04:410:04:43

So...it was A or C.

0:04:430:04:46

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:460:04:47

It is B, banjo.

0:04:510:04:54

I know. As I think you knew, Sarah.

0:04:540:04:55

I'm sorry. We'll see you tomorrow. OK.

0:04:550:04:58

Question number three.

0:05:000:05:02

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:05:160:05:18

So a point to all of you who correctly put Adam Peaty.

0:05:200:05:24

For Linda, Dan, Alan and Ash, you all put Max Whitlock.

0:05:240:05:28

We're just hoping that isn't the impossible answer.

0:05:280:05:31

Dan, how you feeling about it?

0:05:310:05:32

To be honest, I didn't watch

0:05:320:05:33

much of the Olympics,

0:05:330:05:34

so it's a bit hit and miss for me.

0:05:340:05:36

OK. Let's hope it isn't the impossible answer.

0:05:360:05:38

Let's reveal that.

0:05:380:05:39

I'm afraid the impossible answer

0:05:430:05:44

is Max Whitlock.

0:05:440:05:46

He's not a swimmer, he's a gymnast.

0:05:460:05:48

Jazz Carlin is a swimmer.

0:05:480:05:50

That means, Linda, Dan, Alan and Ash,

0:05:500:05:52

unfortunately, I have to say goodbye,

0:05:520:05:54

but we'll see you tomorrow.

0:05:540:05:56

On to question four.

0:05:570:05:59

Let's reveal first the right answer.

0:06:140:06:18

It's A, Angus Macfadyen.

0:06:180:06:19

Just nine of you getting a point there.

0:06:210:06:25

Jane, we were hopeful today.

0:06:250:06:26

Do you remember Braveheart?

0:06:260:06:27

I don't know if I've seen it or not.

0:06:270:06:29

Can't remember. Mmm.

0:06:290:06:31

Deb?

0:06:310:06:33

I really thought it was Mel Gibson, but clearly not.

0:06:330:06:36

But I'm sure Russell Crowe wasn't in it.

0:06:360:06:39

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:06:400:06:43

It is B, Russell Crowe.

0:06:460:06:48

Deb, Mel Gibson was in the film but he played William Wallace.

0:06:480:06:52

I'm sorry, Jane, Gerard,

0:06:520:06:54

Anne and Bim,

0:06:540:06:55

you're also eliminated at this stage.

0:06:550:06:57

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

0:06:570:06:59

Moving on to our fifth question.

0:07:010:07:02

Almost all of you think A, Francois Mitterrand.

0:07:170:07:21

Let's first reveal the impossible answer.

0:07:210:07:24

Well done, you all avoided Bernard Hinault.

0:07:270:07:30

He was not a French president.

0:07:300:07:31

He was a cyclist who won the Tour de France five times.

0:07:310:07:34

Richie. Well, obviously I didn't really know,

0:07:350:07:37

but Francois Mitterrand was much

0:07:370:07:39

later on because he was chummy

0:07:390:07:40

with Margaret Thatcher.

0:07:400:07:42

19 people are going, "Was Francois Mitterrand later?"

0:07:420:07:46

The person who agrees with you is Andrew.

0:07:480:07:51

Ah. Which could be a good sign.

0:07:510:07:52

LAUGHTER

0:07:520:07:54

Definitely.

0:07:540:07:55

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:07:550:07:57

ALL: Oh...

0:07:580:08:00

It's C, Valery Giscard d'Estaing.

0:08:000:08:03

Francois Mitterrand was later.

0:08:030:08:04

He was French president

0:08:040:08:06

1981 to 1995.

0:08:060:08:08

It means only two of you get a point there.

0:08:080:08:12

And only one person has five points

0:08:120:08:14

after that round,

0:08:140:08:15

and that person is Andrew!

0:08:150:08:17

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:08:170:08:19

Congratulations, Andrew.

0:08:190:08:20

Once again you have a chance to grab a place in the final.

0:08:200:08:23

Andrew.

0:08:290:08:31

I'm almost surprised when it ISN'T you sitting in front of me.

0:08:310:08:35

I've got to be hopeful today.

0:08:350:08:37

Maybe you'll crack it today.

0:08:370:08:38

By now we know what we're playing for.

0:08:380:08:40

We're trying to get the ?10,000 question.

0:08:400:08:42

You want to go on a cruise.

0:08:420:08:44

You're going to have dinner with the captain, the whole works.

0:08:440:08:46

Absolutely. I'm going to give you four topics to choose from.

0:08:460:08:50

Popular music, geography, games and science.

0:08:500:08:55

I'll try science, thanks.

0:08:550:08:57

OK.

0:08:570:08:59

So I'm going to reveal nine answers.

0:08:590:09:01

And the first half of a question.

0:09:160:09:19

"In which astronomical constellation...?"

0:09:200:09:24

So five of those answers are impossible,

0:09:240:09:26

because they're not astronomical constellations.

0:09:260:09:29

Your first job is to find those impossible answers and banish them.

0:09:290:09:34

Each impossible answer you eliminate will add ?100 to today's prize pot.

0:09:340:09:39

Where shall we start? Sirius.

0:09:390:09:42

And what do you think about Sirius?

0:09:420:09:45

I think it is a star rather than a constellation.

0:09:450:09:48

Rather than a constellation.

0:09:480:09:50

Is Sirius an impossible answer?

0:09:510:09:53

Yes, it is.

0:09:550:09:57

APPLAUSE

0:09:570:09:58

And you're absolutely right, it's a star, not a constellation.

0:09:580:10:02

Where next?

0:10:020:10:04

Archimedes.

0:10:040:10:06

Why are we going for Archimedes?

0:10:060:10:08

I think he was a Greek philosopher, scientist.

0:10:080:10:11

Is that an impossible answer?

0:10:110:10:13

Yes. And spot-on.

0:10:170:10:19

Greek philosopher and scientist.

0:10:190:10:21

Which one do you want to go for next?

0:10:210:10:22

Achilles.

0:10:220:10:24

Who or what do you think Achilles is?

0:10:240:10:26

Achilles was a Greek soldier at the time of the Trojan War.

0:10:260:10:30

A great level of detail, Andrew.

0:10:300:10:32

I'm enjoying it. Making my job easier.

0:10:320:10:34

Is Achilles an impossible answer?

0:10:360:10:38

Absolutely right.

0:10:430:10:44

A Greek hero in the Trojan War, not a constellation.

0:10:440:10:48

Let's find another two impossibles.

0:10:480:10:51

Medusa. And Medusa.

0:10:510:10:55

She was a Gorgon.

0:10:550:10:56

So if you looked at her face, you turned to stone.

0:10:560:11:00

Lovely lady. Is Medusa an impossible answer?

0:11:010:11:05

APPLAUSE

0:11:080:11:10

She was a Gorgon and you did turn to stone if you look at her.

0:11:100:11:13

Unfortunately for Medusa,

0:11:130:11:14

doesn't have a constellation named after her.

0:11:140:11:17

One more impossible to eliminate.

0:11:170:11:19

Hydra.

0:11:220:11:24

Why have you gone for Hydra?

0:11:240:11:26

Because there is a Hydra which is a multiheaded monster,

0:11:260:11:29

but it's the sort of thing that

0:11:290:11:31

they might also have named a constellation after as well,

0:11:310:11:34

but I don't know. OK.

0:11:340:11:36

Is Hydra an impossible answer?

0:11:370:11:39

I'm afraid not.

0:11:420:11:43

Hydra IS an astronomical constellation.

0:11:430:11:47

Nevertheless, you've done well, put ?400 into today's prize pot.

0:11:470:11:51

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

0:11:510:11:53

of the question and I'll be looking for the right answer.

0:11:530:11:57

If you find it, you take your place in the final,

0:11:570:11:59

if you give a wrong answer, the next best player has the chance

0:11:590:12:03

to steal your place in the final.

0:12:030:12:06

And I can reveal... that that was Helen!

0:12:060:12:09

Oh. Ready, Helen? Ready.

0:12:090:12:12

Ready.

0:12:120:12:13

Let's reveal the full question.

0:12:130:12:15

In which astronomical constellation...

0:12:170:12:19

..is the star "Beetlejuice,"

0:12:210:12:24

or if you prefer, Betelgeuse?

0:12:240:12:27

I think Betelgeuse is in Orion.

0:12:310:12:35

Mm-hm.

0:12:350:12:36

And you've heard of Betelgeuse?

0:12:360:12:38

Yeah, Zaphod Beeblebrox was born on Betelgeuse 5

0:12:380:12:42

in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

0:12:420:12:45

Where it is, I don't know. But you're hoping Orion?

0:12:450:12:48

I'm hoping I'm right. OK.

0:12:480:12:49

So, is Orion the home of the star Betelgeuse?

0:12:510:12:56

This for a place in the final.

0:12:580:13:01

It is!

0:13:010:13:02

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:13:020:13:04

Well done, Andrew.

0:13:040:13:05

You know the drill by now.

0:13:070:13:09

You will take a place in the final.

0:13:090:13:11

Just to clear up the rest of the grid,

0:13:110:13:13

the impossible answer that you didn't find was Vigo.

0:13:130:13:17

Vigo is actually a city in Spain but sometimes confused with Virgo,

0:13:190:13:23

which is a constellation.

0:13:230:13:24

So congratulations, take your place in the final.

0:13:240:13:29

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:13:290:13:30

Still two places left in today's final alongside

0:13:320:13:36

perennial finalist Andrew. Let's find out

0:13:360:13:38

who's going to be claiming the next one.

0:13:380:13:40

There's 20 of you left. Are you ready? PLAYERS: Yes.

0:13:400:13:44

OK. Same deal as before.

0:13:440:13:45

Five multiple-choice questions.

0:13:450:13:47

Here's your first question.

0:13:470:13:48

So we have an almost even split

0:14:020:14:05

between Wyoming and Ohio.

0:14:050:14:07

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:070:14:10

It's B, Wyoming.

0:14:120:14:13

Well done if you put that. A point to you.

0:14:130:14:16

Megan, travelled around the States much?

0:14:160:14:19

I was actually in Vegas in April.

0:14:190:14:21

It was amazing, but...

0:14:210:14:23

And I've been to New York, but that's it.

0:14:230:14:24

We're going to Florida on our honeymoon though, so...

0:14:240:14:27

OK, so you're slowly getting round,

0:14:270:14:28

but haven't been to Yellowstone yet.

0:14:280:14:30

No, no. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:14:300:14:33

It's A, Memphis.

0:14:350:14:37

Memphis of course is a city in Tennessee, not a state,

0:14:370:14:41

so you all successfully avoided the impossible answer.

0:14:410:14:44

Let's move on to question two.

0:14:440:14:46

OK, everyone has gone for TS Eliot.

0:15:000:15:04

The right answer is...

0:15:040:15:05

..TS Eliot. A point to everyone.

0:15:070:15:10

Based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.

0:15:100:15:14

The impossible answer was PT Barnum,

0:15:140:15:17

who was a circus owner and showman.

0:15:170:15:19

Question number three.

0:15:190:15:20

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:15:350:15:37

It is B, rhombus.

0:15:390:15:41

Congratulations to all of you who put that.

0:15:410:15:43

A point to you. Parin.

0:15:430:15:46

I didn't think trapezium and rhombus

0:15:460:15:49

had equal sides, and tetrahedron,

0:15:490:15:52

I'm thinking Tetris, the game, has four squares.

0:15:520:15:55

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:15:570:15:59

I'm afraid it was C, tetrahedron.

0:16:020:16:05

A tetrahedron is a three-dimensional shape,

0:16:050:16:07

it's a solid.

0:16:070:16:09

So unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to you,

0:16:090:16:11

but we'll see you tomorrow, Parin. All right, thanks.

0:16:110:16:13

Question number four, for the remainder of you.

0:16:150:16:17

Let's first reveal the right answer.

0:16:330:16:34

It's Ralph Fiennes.

0:16:360:16:38

So a point to those of you

0:16:380:16:40

who've put Ralph Fiennes.

0:16:400:16:42

This means a few of you have put the impossible answer.

0:16:420:16:45

Craig, did you see Spectre?

0:16:470:16:49

I've not seen any. Never seen a Bond film?

0:16:490:16:52

No. Oh, Craig.

0:16:520:16:53

You must! I know, shoot me now. Just...

0:16:530:16:56

Middle. And, yeah, a little... You know.

0:16:560:17:00

Hit middle, pray. Yeah. Sure.

0:17:000:17:03

Kerry?

0:17:030:17:04

Idris obviously stands out in a crowd,

0:17:040:17:06

and I didn't notice him in the movie.

0:17:060:17:08

I remember in one of the shows there was a younger guy that was M,

0:17:080:17:12

you know, the young techie kid person,

0:17:120:17:15

who looks a lot younger than Ralph, so I've gone for Ben.

0:17:150:17:19

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:17:190:17:22

It's B, Idris Elba.

0:17:260:17:28

You're right, Kerry, you would have

0:17:280:17:30

noticed if he'd been in it.

0:17:300:17:31

You're also right to say that Ben Wishaw

0:17:310:17:32

plays the young techie guy in the film,

0:17:320:17:35

but that's Q, not M.

0:17:350:17:37

Oh... I thought it said Q!

0:17:370:17:40

LAUGHTER

0:17:400:17:42

Well, when you look again, Kerry...

0:17:420:17:46

it's a pretty definitive M.

0:17:460:17:49

That does mean that Craig, Tracy, Vinessa and Carol Marie,

0:17:510:17:55

we have to say goodbye to you. We'll see you all tomorrow.

0:17:550:17:58

Going onto our final question, which is...

0:18:000:18:03

So, Ray, you're the only one

0:18:150:18:17

who thought Amaretto.

0:18:170:18:19

Are you a big coffee drinker?

0:18:190:18:21

Erm, didn't have much of a clue.

0:18:210:18:22

I know Amaretto is a drink, I think

0:18:220:18:23

it's more of an alcoholic drink,

0:18:230:18:25

and...I thought I'd have a glass of that.

0:18:250:18:28

LAUGHTER

0:18:280:18:29

Well, let's see if you're going to need a glass of that, Ray.

0:18:290:18:32

I mean, it is quite early. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:18:320:18:36

I'm afraid it IS amaretto,

0:18:360:18:39

it's an almond-flavoured liqueur.

0:18:390:18:41

I'll get you one now and we'll see you tomorrow.

0:18:410:18:43

Thank you.

0:18:430:18:45

Let's see if the rest of you are going to get a point.

0:18:450:18:49

It is A, macchiato.

0:18:490:18:50

So a point each.

0:18:500:18:52

So that leaves four of you with five points,

0:18:520:18:55

but I can tell you that the quickest to lock in

0:18:550:18:59

their answers in that round was Gary.

0:18:590:19:02

Congratulations, Gary.

0:19:050:19:06

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

0:19:060:19:10

WHOOPING

0:19:150:19:17

Gary.

0:19:170:19:18

Here we are again. Yes.

0:19:180:19:20

Playing the grid. Yes.

0:19:200:19:21

Haven't made it through to a ?10,000 question thus far.

0:19:210:19:24

No, no. We're still trying to get you your first car.

0:19:240:19:27

Yeah. All right.

0:19:270:19:29

Of the three remaining topics - popular music, geography and games -

0:19:290:19:35

which do you fancy? It has to be geography.

0:19:350:19:37

OK. Geography.

0:19:370:19:39

Here are your nine answers.

0:19:390:19:42

And the first half of the question is...

0:19:510:19:55

"Which island in the Mediterranean...?"

0:19:550:19:58

Five of those answers are impossible

0:19:590:20:02

because they are not islands in the Mediterranean.

0:20:020:20:06

So where shall we start?

0:20:060:20:07

Let's try and eliminate five impossible answers.

0:20:070:20:09

OK. Well, I know Aruba is in the Caribbean - I think.

0:20:090:20:13

So not the Mediterranean, so Aruba, please.

0:20:130:20:16

OK. Is Aruba an impossible answer?

0:20:160:20:19

Yes, it is.

0:20:210:20:23

It is in the Caribbean.

0:20:230:20:24

Technically, it's part of The Netherlands.

0:20:240:20:26

Ah. Next answer, please.

0:20:260:20:28

Fuerteventura, I can't remember if it's Canary Islands or...

0:20:300:20:33

Yeah, I think Fuerteventura is in the Canaries,

0:20:330:20:36

which would not be in the Mediterranean.

0:20:360:20:38

So Fuerteventura, please.

0:20:380:20:40

Is Fuerteventura an impossible answer?

0:20:400:20:42

It is. Another ?100 in the prize pot.

0:20:450:20:48

Fuerteventura is in the Canaries, which is in the Atlantic.

0:20:480:20:51

OK. Brava just makes me think of the Costa Brava,

0:20:530:20:56

which is not an island, obviously.

0:20:560:20:59

So we'll give Brava a go, please.

0:20:590:21:01

Let's see if Brava is an impossible answer.

0:21:020:21:04

APPLAUSE

0:21:070:21:09

It is. Brava is part of Cape Verde, which is in the Atlantic Ocean.

0:21:110:21:15

OK, close. Fourth answer, please.

0:21:160:21:20

Hvar, I think it's Croatia, perhaps.

0:21:200:21:23

I don't know if it's an island or... maybe a town in Croatia,

0:21:230:21:26

but we'll give it a go and hope for the best.

0:21:260:21:29

OK. Is Hvar an impossible answer?

0:21:290:21:32

I'm afraid not.

0:21:340:21:36

It IS an island in the Mediterranean.

0:21:360:21:38

One more go though.

0:21:380:21:40

Pemba, please.

0:21:420:21:44

Is Pemba an impossible answer?

0:21:440:21:46

It is! Pemba is an island in the Indian Ocean

0:21:500:21:53

which is part of Tanzania.

0:21:530:21:55

OK. So ?400 in the prize pot.

0:21:550:21:57

We now need to find out if you're going to be playing

0:21:570:21:59

for that money and for a shot at the ?10,000 question in today's final.

0:21:590:22:04

When I reveal the second half of the question, you need to tell me

0:22:040:22:07

the right answer. If you find it,

0:22:070:22:09

you're in the final alongside Andrew, again.

0:22:090:22:12

Give me a wrong answer and the next best player - who was Penny...

0:22:120:22:16

PLAYERS: Ooh...

0:22:160:22:18

..will get the chance to steal.

0:22:180:22:19

There is one impossible left on the grid to potentially trip you up.

0:22:190:22:24

If you give me that, I'm afraid

0:22:240:22:26

you will be eliminated from today's show.

0:22:260:22:28

The full question is, "Which island in the Mediterranean...

0:22:300:22:34

"..has a capital city called Mahon?"

0:22:360:22:39

And I'm looking for the right answer.

0:22:400:22:43

Yeah. Well, it sounds...

0:22:440:22:47

I don't know, unfortunately,

0:22:470:22:49

but it sounds Spanish.

0:22:490:22:51

So...on that basis, and on that basis alone...

0:22:530:22:59

it's got to be Menorca.

0:22:590:23:01

Is Mahon the capital city of Menorca?

0:23:030:23:08

It is!

0:23:100:23:11

CHEERING

0:23:110:23:12

The other impossible answer that you missed was Flores,

0:23:140:23:17

which is in the Azores, in the Atlantic.

0:23:170:23:19

Well done, Gary. We'll see you a bit later in today's final.

0:23:190:23:22

Please take your place next to Andrew.

0:23:220:23:24

ALL: Woo!

0:23:240:23:25

So just one place left in today's final alongside Andrew and Gary.

0:23:270:23:31

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

0:23:310:23:32

Only 13 surviving players.

0:23:320:23:35

Good showing from the back row but no-one in the final yet.

0:23:350:23:38

Are you ready? PLAYERS: Yes.

0:23:380:23:40

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

0:23:400:23:43

Most of you have gone for Moe.

0:23:550:23:57

We've got one Jesse Pinkman

0:23:570:23:59

and one Nelson Muntz.

0:23:590:24:01

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:24:010:24:02

It is Moe Szyslak.

0:24:040:24:07

A point to all of you, that means one of you, though,

0:24:070:24:10

has given an impossible answer.

0:24:100:24:13

Either Carole or Paul.

0:24:130:24:15

Carole? I've never seen an episode of The Simpsons in my life.

0:24:150:24:19

I don't know the first thing about them.

0:24:190:24:22

What about you, Paul? Well, strangely enough, Rick,

0:24:220:24:24

I've never seen an episode of The Simpsons either.

0:24:240:24:28

Obviously I do know Homer Simpson

0:24:280:24:30

and a little bit about it, but I didn't know

0:24:300:24:33

the answer to that, so I just had to press and guess.

0:24:330:24:36

OK. Let's reveal what that impossible answer is.

0:24:360:24:38

It's A, Jesse Pinkman.

0:24:420:24:44

I'm afraid, Paul, Jesse Pinkman is a character from Breaking Bad.

0:24:440:24:48

OK. That means we have to say goodbye to you for now.

0:24:480:24:50

Maybe watch some Simpsons this evening and we'll see you tomorrow.

0:24:500:24:54

Cheers, Rick. Carole, Nelson Muntz is the school bully in the Simpsons.

0:24:540:24:58

Oh, is he? He is. OK. Question number two.

0:24:580:25:01

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:25:150:25:16

It is B, retiarius.

0:25:190:25:20

Well done if you put retiarius.

0:25:200:25:23

A point to you.

0:25:230:25:25

Now, I couldn't help but notice,

0:25:250:25:27

Kurtis, that immediately after you...

0:25:270:25:29

RICK AND KURTIS LAUGH

0:25:290:25:31

..entered your answer, you then dropped your head into your hands.

0:25:310:25:36

No, not happy at all.

0:25:360:25:37

Not happy with your answer "Ranieri"?

0:25:370:25:39

No, really not.

0:25:390:25:40

Like, horrendously unhappy, for so many reasons.

0:25:400:25:44

Give me the top reason.

0:25:440:25:46

I'm a massive football fan.

0:25:460:25:48

LAUGHTER

0:25:480:25:49

Do you think there's a chance that he might also be a Roman gladiator?

0:25:510:25:55

Oh, dear. No, never mind.

0:25:550:25:56

Guy? Does that make you feel a bit better?

0:25:580:26:00

Absolutely. I'm wearing my lucky pants today as well.

0:26:000:26:04

But they are bunching up a little bit, so it's keeping me on edge.

0:26:040:26:07

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:26:070:26:10

It is C, Ranieri, who is the Leicester City football manager.

0:26:140:26:18

That means that, unfortunately, Kurtis, Penny and Carole,

0:26:200:26:24

we have to lose you...

0:26:240:26:26

and we'll see you all tomorrow.

0:26:260:26:27

I'm sure you were thinking this anyway, Guy,

0:26:290:26:31

the secutor was the opponent of the retiarius,

0:26:310:26:35

who fought with a sword and a shield.

0:26:350:26:37

Next question, question number three.

0:26:370:26:39

So we've got a pretty

0:26:550:26:57

even split of answers,

0:26:570:26:58

meaning that some people

0:26:580:27:00

will be eliminated

0:27:000:27:01

after this question.

0:27:010:27:03

The right answer is...

0:27:030:27:05

..A, Let it bleed.

0:27:080:27:10

Just three of you getting that right,

0:27:100:27:12

all of you getting a point.

0:27:120:27:14

Richard? I was tending to think that

0:27:150:27:17

Exile On Main St

0:27:170:27:18

was maybe more Bruce Springsteen,

0:27:180:27:21

but not really a clue.

0:27:210:27:22

Hoping here again, hoping.

0:27:220:27:24

Annie?

0:27:240:27:26

No, never been into The Rolling Stones at all,

0:27:260:27:28

I was more of a Beatles girl.

0:27:280:27:30

Ah.

0:27:300:27:31

Haven't got a clue and I just

0:27:310:27:33

went Exile On Main St,

0:27:330:27:34

and now I'm thinking

0:27:340:27:36

maybe Richard is right.

0:27:360:27:37

I think I'm out now.

0:27:370:27:39

OK. Kerry?

0:27:390:27:40

You also went Blood On The Tracks.

0:27:400:27:43

Well, I was confident first off,

0:27:430:27:46

and after I pressed the button...

0:27:460:27:48

how can you have a cake on the cover

0:27:480:27:50

of an album with the title

0:27:500:27:52

Blood On The Tracks?

0:27:520:27:53

So I felt that wouldn't really work,

0:27:530:27:56

but now that I know the answer is

0:27:560:27:58

Let It Bleed, that still...

0:27:580:27:59

So I've no clue.

0:27:590:28:02

I'm hoping they like the blood theme

0:28:020:28:04

and then I'll be fine.

0:28:040:28:06

OK. Kerry is hoping that The Rolling Stones like the blood theme.

0:28:060:28:10

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:28:100:28:12

It's C, Blood On The Tracks,

0:28:150:28:17

which is a Bob Dylan album,

0:28:170:28:19

I'm afraid.

0:28:190:28:20

Richard and Kerry, goodbye for now.

0:28:200:28:22

We'll see you both tomorrow.

0:28:220:28:24

Just seven players left now as we move on to question four.

0:28:260:28:29

All but one of you have gone

0:28:450:28:46

for Christopher Marlowe.

0:28:460:28:48

Guy, you've gone for John Webster.

0:28:480:28:50

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:28:500:28:51

It was Christopher Marlowe.

0:28:540:28:55

So a point to all of you.

0:28:550:28:56

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:28:560:28:58

GUY EXHALES RASPINGLY

0:29:000:29:01

You've avoided it, Guy.

0:29:010:29:02

Well done. Richard Sheridan was a Regency playwright

0:29:020:29:06

and not a contemporary of Shakespeare.

0:29:060:29:08

I knew that. Of course you did, Guy.

0:29:080:29:10

Question number five.

0:29:100:29:12

Richie and Helen currently

0:29:260:29:27

in the lead on four points.

0:29:270:29:29

Let's reveal

0:29:290:29:30

the impossible answer first.

0:29:300:29:32

It's B, the Empire builder.

0:29:340:29:36

Richie, you've knocked yourself out.

0:29:380:29:40

You were in the lead, but I'm afraid we have to say goodbye.

0:29:400:29:44

That's in the United States.

0:29:440:29:45

Ah, right, OK. I'll know for next time.

0:29:450:29:48

And, Joe, also going home for today, I'm afraid,

0:29:480:29:51

but we'll see you tomorrow.

0:29:510:29:53

So, Helen, if your answer C, the Indian Pacific, is right,

0:29:540:29:58

then you're safely through

0:29:580:30:01

to try and grab a place in the final.

0:30:010:30:04

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:30:040:30:07

It's A, the Ghan.

0:30:100:30:12

So that is a point to Deb and a point to Guy.

0:30:140:30:18

Which means that we now have a tie on four points.

0:30:190:30:23

Helen and Deb.

0:30:230:30:26

It is a very close between the two of you, but I can reveal that

0:30:260:30:30

the quickest player to lock in their answers...

0:30:300:30:33

was Helen!

0:30:330:30:35

Congratulations, Helen.

0:30:350:30:37

You have the chance to grab the last place in today's final

0:30:370:30:40

alongside Andrew and Gary.

0:30:400:30:41

CHEERING

0:30:460:30:48

So, Helen, second time down here playing a grid.

0:30:480:30:51

Yeah. Confident? A little bit.

0:30:510:30:53

I'm not sure about the categories though.

0:30:530:30:55

OK. And we know that if you win the ?10,000, you're going to try

0:30:550:31:00

and get and get on every rollercoaster in the United States.

0:31:000:31:03

Yes. OK, good.

0:31:030:31:05

You can add another ?500 to today's prize pot,

0:31:050:31:09

which already stands at ?800 thanks to Andrew and Gary,

0:31:090:31:12

and also be a step closer

0:31:120:31:14

towards playing for the ?10,000 question.

0:31:140:31:16

So we're going to have to choose a topic.

0:31:170:31:20

Oh, I'm bad with popular music.

0:31:200:31:23

I listen to very unpopular music, I guess.

0:31:230:31:27

I'm going to go for games. I'm going to risk it.

0:31:270:31:29

OK, games. Your nine answers are...

0:31:290:31:31

And the first half of the question is...

0:31:440:31:47

"Which question category in the original UK edition"

0:31:480:31:52

"of Trivial Pursuit...?"

0:31:520:31:54

Five of those are impossible.

0:31:540:31:57

You need to find those impossible answers.

0:31:570:32:00

OK, I'm going to go people and places,

0:32:000:32:02

because that's a Pictionary category.

0:32:020:32:04

Is that an impossible answer?

0:32:040:32:06

It is! Well done.

0:32:090:32:11

Where next?

0:32:110:32:12

I'm going to go film television.

0:32:130:32:15

What are you thinking?

0:32:150:32:17

Well, I know on the edition we have, entertainment is the category,

0:32:170:32:20

it's the pink category, and it covers film television,

0:32:200:32:24

so I don't think that's one.

0:32:240:32:26

Is film television an impossible answer?

0:32:260:32:28

Yes, it is. Third answer, please.

0:32:300:32:33

OK.

0:32:330:32:34

I'm unsure on geography and music.

0:32:380:32:41

I'm very sure about entertainment, history and science.

0:32:410:32:46

And I think art and literature is one as well, I'm sure.

0:32:480:32:52

That makes four, doesn't it?

0:32:520:32:53

Erm, let's go music. OK.

0:32:530:32:56

Is music an impossible answer?

0:32:560:32:58

It is. ?300 added to the prize pot.

0:33:010:33:04

It now stands at ?1,100.

0:33:040:33:06

Two more impossibles to find.

0:33:060:33:08

OK. Britain.

0:33:080:33:09

Just don't fancy Britain?

0:33:110:33:12

Why would they have Britain in the UK edition?

0:33:120:33:15

Wouldn't it be "United Kingdom questions"?

0:33:150:33:18

So I think it's a red herring.

0:33:180:33:21

OK. Is Britain an impossible answer?

0:33:210:33:23

It is.

0:33:250:33:27

Congratulations. One more impossible still lurking on the grid.

0:33:270:33:31

OK, I was thinking geography before,

0:33:320:33:35

but art literature is throwing me a bit.

0:33:350:33:38

But I'm going to go geography.

0:33:380:33:41

Is geography an impossible answer?

0:33:410:33:43

I'm afraid it... It's fine. ..isn't.

0:33:460:33:48

But still ?400 added to the prize pot, which now stands at ?1,200.

0:33:480:33:55

But will you be playing for that money

0:33:550:33:57

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

0:33:570:34:00

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

0:34:000:34:05

And remember, the next best player from that round, who was Deb,

0:34:050:34:10

is waiting to steal.

0:34:100:34:11

She's smiling, but she's a smiling assassin.

0:34:110:34:13

LAUGHTER That's if you give a wrong answer.

0:34:130:34:17

There is one impossible left up there.

0:34:180:34:21

If you give me that, I'm afraid you will be eliminated today.

0:34:220:34:26

The full question is -

0:34:270:34:28

"Which question category in the original UK edition

0:34:280:34:33

"of Trivial Pursuit is represented by the colour pink?"

0:34:330:34:38

I think I know this one.

0:34:380:34:40

I think you might. Yes, I think it's entertainment.

0:34:400:34:42

OK, you've said that before.

0:34:420:34:44

Is entertainment the right answer, for a place in the final?

0:34:440:34:46

It is! Well done, Helen.

0:34:490:34:51

The impossible that you missed was science.

0:34:510:34:53

There is a science and nature category, but not a science one.

0:34:530:34:56

You've grabbed the last place

0:34:560:34:58

in today's final. Please take your place.

0:34:580:35:01

But for the rest of you, I'm afraid victory today proved impossible.

0:35:040:35:08

We'll see you next time.

0:35:080:35:10

But for Andrew, Gary and Helen, it's time for the final.

0:35:100:35:13

So this is the third time Andrew and Gary have faced off

0:35:200:35:25

against each other in the final.

0:35:250:35:26

There is ?1,200 in today's prize pot.

0:35:260:35:29

Only one of you can win that money

0:35:290:35:31

and get the chance to face the ?10,000 question.

0:35:310:35:34

You'll each start with ten lives.

0:35:340:35:38

Questions on the buzzer.

0:35:380:35:40

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

0:35:400:35:43

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

0:35:430:35:47

However, some of the questions are impossible.

0:35:470:35:50

For example, which of the 12 signs of the Zodiac

0:35:500:35:54

is represented by the snake?

0:35:540:35:56

None of them is represented by a snake,

0:35:560:35:58

hence it's an impossible question.

0:35:580:36:00

If you think you've spotted one of those,

0:36:000:36:02

all you've got to do is buzz in and say "impossible".

0:36:020:36:05

That's double trouble for your opponents,

0:36:050:36:07

they'll both lose two lives.

0:36:070:36:09

The last surviving player takes the ?1,200.

0:36:090:36:13

Good luck to you all.

0:36:150:36:16

How many years of marriage are marked

0:36:160:36:19

by a silver wedding anniversary?

0:36:190:36:21

Andrew. 25.

0:36:210:36:23

It is 25. Gary and Helen lose a life.

0:36:230:36:25

Which novel by Charles Dickens features the lawyer Atticus Finch?

0:36:270:36:32

Helen. Impossible.

0:36:320:36:34

0:36:560:36:57

It is impossible.

0:36:570:36:58

It's New Orleans, which is in Louisiana.

0:37:170:37:20

0:37:220:37:24

It is 12.

0:37:240:37:25

The Isles of Scilly lie off the coast of which English county?

0:37:280:37:32

Andrew. Cornwall.

0:37:330:37:35

It is Cornwall.

0:37:350:37:36

What was the first name of Jason Donovan's character in Neighbours?

0:37:370:37:43

Helen. Impossible?

0:37:430:37:44

It's not impossible, I'm afraid, Helen.

0:37:440:37:47

It was Scott, Scott Robinson.

0:37:470:37:49

You lose two lives.

0:37:490:37:50

Who scored Liverpool's winning goal in the 2016 FA Cup final?

0:37:530:37:58

Gary. Impossible.

0:37:580:37:59

It is impossible. Liverpool weren't in it.

0:38:010:38:03

Jesse Lingard scored the winner for Manchester United

0:38:030:38:06

against Crystal Palace.

0:38:060:38:08

Meaning Andrew, you lose two lives, but crucially, Helen,

0:38:080:38:11

you lose two lives and you are out again.

0:38:110:38:14

Commiserations. I'm afraid you're eliminated.

0:38:140:38:16

Andrew. Scooby-Doo.

0:38:240:38:26

It is Scooby-Doo.

0:38:260:38:27

In which country of the UK is the city of Limerick?

0:38:290:38:33

Gary. Impossible.

0:38:330:38:35

It is impossible.

0:38:360:38:37

It's in the Republic of Ireland. It's not part of the UK.

0:38:370:38:40

Andrew, you lose two lives and you are out.

0:38:400:38:43

Gary, congratulations, you are the winner.

0:38:430:38:46

Commiserations to Andrew and Helen.

0:38:460:38:49

We'll see you both next time.

0:38:490:38:51

Very well done, Gary.

0:38:510:38:52

It's time to face the ?10,000 question.

0:38:520:38:54

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:38:580:38:59

Gary, very well done.

0:39:020:39:04

You got through the final.

0:39:040:39:05

You are today's winner with ?1,200.

0:39:050:39:08

That's fantastic, but you could be leaving with a whole lot more

0:39:080:39:12

if you can answer the ?10,000 question.

0:39:120:39:15

You know how it works, but I'm going to explain to you anyway.

0:39:150:39:18

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

0:39:180:39:22

Three of the nine answers are correct,

0:39:220:39:24

and if you can find them all

0:39:240:39:26

within ten seconds, you win that ?10,000.

0:39:260:39:30

That's your good news.

0:39:300:39:32

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

0:39:320:39:36

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

0:39:360:39:40

The bad news is three of the nine answers

0:39:400:39:43

are impossible, and if you give me

0:39:430:39:44

any of those answers, you will lose the ?1,200 as well.

0:39:440:39:49

OK. OK.

0:39:490:39:52

Here it is. Today's ?10,000 question.

0:39:520:39:56

I hope it's fallen kindly for you.

0:39:560:39:58

It's on history.

0:39:580:40:00

Are you ready? Good to go.

0:40:000:40:03

Good luck, Gary.

0:40:030:40:04

Here are your nine answers.

0:40:040:40:07

And you're looking for...

0:40:210:40:22

"Wives of Henry VIII who bore his children."

0:40:240:40:28

And your time starts now.

0:40:280:40:30

Anne Boleyn.

0:40:300:40:31

Catherine of Aragon.

0:40:340:40:36

Catherine Howard.

0:40:370:40:38

OK. How did you feel when you saw those names come up?

0:40:430:40:46

Well, I guessed it was Henry VIII-related.

0:40:460:40:50

But...yeah, we'll see, we'll see.

0:40:500:40:54

OK. So let's start with Anne Boleyn.

0:40:540:40:57

Is Anne Boleyn a right answer?

0:40:590:41:01

It is! CHEERING

0:41:050:41:08

We're a third of the way there.

0:41:080:41:10

Let's move on to Catherine of Aragon.

0:41:130:41:17

Is Catherine of Aragon a right answer?

0:41:170:41:20

It is.

0:41:230:41:25

One away. One away.

0:41:280:41:29

One away, Gary. Nervy?

0:41:290:41:32

A little. All I knew was Anne Boleyn definitely bore a child.

0:41:320:41:37

Had to guess the rest, unfortunately.

0:41:370:41:40

OK. Well, you've guessed one well.

0:41:400:41:43

Fingers crossed for the last one.

0:41:430:41:46

Catherine Howard.

0:41:460:41:47

If Catherine Howard...

0:41:510:41:54

had a child with Henry VIII...

0:41:540:41:56

..you will win ?10,000.

0:41:580:42:00

Is Catherine Howard the right answer?

0:42:040:42:07

ALL: Aww!

0:42:110:42:13

It isn't, Gary! But it's not an impossible answer.

0:42:130:42:16

Still, well done.

0:42:160:42:18

You've won the ?1,200. Thank you.

0:42:180:42:21

Hopefully you will get another shot at the ?10,000 question

0:42:210:42:25

later in the series.

0:42:250:42:27

The right answer that you were looking for...

0:42:290:42:32

was Jane Seymour.

0:42:320:42:34

Mother of Edward VI.

0:42:350:42:38

Anne Boleyn, mother of Elizabeth I,

0:42:380:42:40

and Catherine of Aragon was mother of Mary I.

0:42:400:42:43

The impossibles that you avoided were Catherine of Braganza,

0:42:460:42:50

who was the wife of Charles II,

0:42:500:42:52

Mary of Modena, wife of James II,

0:42:520:42:54

and Lady Jane Grey, who was the Nine-Day Queen.

0:42:540:42:58

So Gary just narrowly missed out on the ?10,000, but he did win ?1,200,

0:43:010:43:07

and we will see him next time.

0:43:070:43:09

This has been Impossible, the quiz where anything is possible.

0:43:090:43:12

Goodbye.

0:43:120:43:14

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:43:150:43:17

Game show in which 30 players compete across the series, scoring points by answering questions correctly. However, they must avoid the impossible answers, otherwise they will be eliminated from the show until the next day. In each episode there are three rounds, and the three highest scorers from each round play against each other in the final. The winner of this battle faces a £10,000 question.
