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

# Impossible

0:00:060:00:09

# Impossible. #

0:00:100:00:12

APPLAUSE

0:00:120:00:14

Welcome to !mpossible, the quiz with the third dimension.

0:00:140:00:17

Most quiz shows have just right answers and wrong answers,

0:00:170:00:20

but here, we also have impossible answers.

0:00:200:00:23

For example, if I were to ask...

0:00:230:00:25

The right answer is Orinoco.

0:00:320:00:34

The wrong answer is Tobermory, but Bungle is a character from

0:00:340:00:37

Rainbow, not the Wombles at all.

0:00:370:00:40

So, that is the impossible answer.

0:00:400:00:42

Hoping to get lots of right answers whilst dodging those pesky

0:00:420:00:45

impossible answers are 30 players.

0:00:450:00:47

-Hello, players. ALL:

-Hello!

0:00:470:00:50

Cheery as ever. They will be with us throughout the series,

0:00:500:00:52

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

0:00:520:00:56

THEY OOH AND AAH

0:00:560:00:58

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

0:00:580:01:01

THEY CHEER

0:01:010:01:03

They're whooping because they know that this exclamation mark is filled

0:01:030:01:07

with 10,000 shimmering pound coins.

0:01:070:01:10

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

0:01:100:01:14

Here it is. Today's £10,000 question.

0:01:150:01:18

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

0:01:180:01:23

Now, Gary, last time you came so close to seeing all of this money

0:01:230:01:28

-cascade out.

-I know. So, so close.

0:01:280:01:30

But you did manage to hang on to the £1,200 daily prize pot, so that's a

0:01:300:01:35

-consolation at least.

-Oh, very much so. Very much so.

0:01:350:01:38

Anne, who is watching at home?

0:01:380:01:40

My other half. My new partner I met eight years ago on the internet.

0:01:400:01:43

Because he played golf when I met him, I've learnt it since.

0:01:430:01:46

If you can't beat them, join them, you know.

0:01:460:01:48

Yes, good attitude, Anne.

0:01:480:01:49

-Are we going to see you out here at some point?

-I do hope so.

0:01:490:01:52

I hope so, too, Anne. We'll be getting to know all of our lovely

0:01:520:01:55

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

0:01:550:01:58

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

0:01:580:02:03

The right answer scores you a point.

0:02:030:02:05

The wrong answer scores you nothing.

0:02:050:02:07

But if you choose the impossible answer...

0:02:070:02:09

..disaster. That immediately knocks you out of today's show

0:02:100:02:13

and you'll have to try again tomorrow.

0:02:130:02:16

After five questions, the highest scorer gets the first chance to bag

0:02:160:02:20

a place in today's final.

0:02:200:02:22

And do answer quickly as you can, because, if there's a tie,

0:02:220:02:25

whoever locked in their answers the fastest will qualify.

0:02:250:02:29

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

0:02:290:02:31

Get those answers locked in.

0:02:450:02:47

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:02:470:02:49

It's St David.

0:02:520:02:54

So, a point to all of you that put David.

0:02:540:02:56

That does, unfortunately, mean that

0:02:560:02:59

one or more of you has given an

0:02:590:03:01

impossible answer.

0:03:010:03:02

Kerry, are you up on your saints?

0:03:040:03:06

Only last week my daughter was playing the piano

0:03:070:03:09

and it was something to do with St Stephen's bells

0:03:090:03:12

ringing or something.

0:03:120:03:14

So, therefore, I thought that was quite plausible.

0:03:150:03:18

It sounds plausible when you put it like that, Kerry.

0:03:180:03:21

Let's see what the impossible answer is.

0:03:210:03:23

I'm afraid it's St Stephen.

0:03:270:03:30

Not a UK patron saint.

0:03:300:03:32

That means that we have to lose you at this very early stage, Kerry.

0:03:330:03:37

But we will see you again tomorrow.

0:03:370:03:39

-Thank you.

-Just slowly shakes his head.

0:03:390:03:41

LAUGHTER

0:03:410:03:43

Question number two.

0:03:430:03:45

So, the majority of you have gone for George Eliot.

0:03:590:04:02

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:04:020:04:04

It is A, George Eliot.

0:04:060:04:08

A point to all of you.

0:04:080:04:10

Dan, you went for a AS Byatt.

0:04:100:04:12

-Yeah.

-Book reader?

0:04:120:04:14

No, not really. I just kind of thought, "Well,

0:04:140:04:16

"George Eliot is a bit obvious but clearly wrong."

0:04:160:04:18

You know, male name, got suckered in with that.

0:04:180:04:21

-Bram Stoker...

-Or, to put it another way, clearly right.

0:04:210:04:24

Yeah, well, yeah.

0:04:240:04:25

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:04:250:04:27

It is Bram Stoker.

0:04:300:04:32

Bram Stoker is a man.

0:04:320:04:34

I'm sorry, Craig and Bim.

0:04:340:04:36

At this stage we are going to have to say goodbye to you.

0:04:360:04:38

-We'll see you both tomorrow.

-I thought George Eliot is a man.

0:04:380:04:42

Ah, wait. Wait, Bim,

0:04:420:04:44

George Eliot sounds like a man, but is actually the pen name of

0:04:440:04:48

-Mary Ann Evans.

-Now I learn.

0:04:480:04:51

There you go. It's a learning experience, Bim.

0:04:510:04:54

So, at this stage we've lost Parin, Craig, Kerry and Bim.

0:04:540:04:57

Let's move on to question three.

0:04:570:04:59

So, we've got a full spread of

0:05:170:05:19

answers here.

0:05:190:05:21

Let's first of all reveal

0:05:210:05:22

the right answer.

0:05:220:05:24

It was B, Paul McGinley.

0:05:240:05:26

Only eight of you getting that right,

0:05:270:05:29

so eight of you getting a point.

0:05:290:05:31

That means, potentially, we could lose a lot of people.

0:05:310:05:35

Anne...?

0:05:350:05:37

I have watched that. I did watch the Ryder Cup couple of years ago, yes.

0:05:370:05:40

Mm-hm.

0:05:400:05:41

-And I couldn't remember who was the captain.

-Ah, that's a problem.

0:05:410:05:45

-It is.

-Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:05:450:05:49

It is C, Paul Lawrie.

0:05:520:05:54

-He's a Scottish golfer.

-Aw.

0:05:540:05:57

Sorry, Anne, Sarah, Annie, and Carol, we'll have to lose you.

0:05:570:06:01

We'll see you all tomorrow.

0:06:010:06:03

Question number four.

0:06:050:06:06

So, a lot of you have gone for David.

0:06:220:06:25

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:06:250:06:28

It is B, David.

0:06:280:06:31

Points to all of you.

0:06:310:06:33

That means one or more of you has given an impossible answer.

0:06:330:06:36

-Richard.

-Hello.

0:06:360:06:38

Familiar with the Venus de Milo?

0:06:380:06:40

It was a toss-up between David and Venus de Milo and I think I've

0:06:410:06:45

heard of Michelangelo's Venus de Milo...

0:06:450:06:47

..but not necessarily there.

0:06:490:06:51

Helen, you went for Pieta.

0:06:510:06:53

Yeah, so I'm familiar with the Pieta.

0:06:530:06:56

I did two years of art history, but now I'm feeling really, really,

0:06:560:06:59

really unsure. But I know that the Venus de Milo is in the Louvre.

0:06:590:07:04

But now... I don't... Maybe...

0:07:040:07:06

I'm really confused now.

0:07:060:07:08

Two years of art history ends with confusion.

0:07:080:07:11

I'll put you out of your misery now, Helen,

0:07:130:07:16

and reveal the impossible answer is...

0:07:160:07:19

Oh.

0:07:220:07:23

The Venus de Milo, not by Michelangelo,

0:07:230:07:26

is in the Louvre, as you said, Helen.

0:07:260:07:29

Pieta is in St Peters in Rome.

0:07:290:07:32

So, that means, unfortunately, Vinessa, Richard and Linda,

0:07:320:07:36

we have to say goodbye to you now, but we will see you again tomorrow.

0:07:360:07:40

Moving on to the last question.

0:07:420:07:44

This is question five.

0:07:440:07:45

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:08:040:08:06

John Taylor.

0:08:070:08:09

So, ten of you getting that right and getting another point.

0:08:090:08:14

That does mean that some of the rest of you have given an impossible

0:08:140:08:18

answer. Richie?

0:08:180:08:20

Well, I was absolutely sure it was Simon Le Bon

0:08:200:08:22

and I was waiting for him to come out, and I'm still waiting for it to

0:08:220:08:25

-come out because it's not any of them.

-Oh, yeah, sorry.

0:08:250:08:28

D, Simon Le Bon.

0:08:280:08:30

And I thought, "Well, it couldn't be Simon Taylor,"

0:08:320:08:34

because two Simons in a band would be confusing,

0:08:340:08:37

-so I just went for Roger.

-Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:08:370:08:40

You can't have two Simons in a band.

0:08:450:08:49

That means unfortunately, Curtis, Tracy and Penny,

0:08:490:08:54

we have to lose you at that stage

0:08:540:08:55

but we'll see you all tomorrow.

0:08:550:08:58

So, after those five questions, two of you have five points.

0:08:590:09:04

They are Carol Marie and Andrew.

0:09:040:09:08

It was very close,

0:09:110:09:14

but the fastest to lock in their answers...

0:09:140:09:18

was Andrew.

0:09:180:09:20

Congratulations.

0:09:200:09:22

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

0:09:220:09:25

-Andrew.

-We must stop meeting like this.

0:09:280:09:31

We really must. But it's good for you that we are meeting.

0:09:310:09:33

Remind me, who's going to be watching you?

0:09:330:09:35

Well, hopefully, my family.

0:09:350:09:37

My brother-in-law, my two boys, my wife,

0:09:370:09:40

and anybody else that knows me.

0:09:400:09:43

All right. This is your chance to put £500 into today's prize pot,

0:09:430:09:48

and, crucially, take a massive step towards playing

0:09:480:09:51

that £10,000 question. You've played it once before.

0:09:510:09:54

If you do get through, it will be your second and final attempt.

0:09:540:09:59

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

0:09:590:10:02

Sport, Film, Politics, Books & Literature.

0:10:030:10:08

-Which do you want to go for?

-I'll go for Film, please.

0:10:090:10:12

So, I'm going to reveal nine answers...

0:10:120:10:14

And the first half of a question...

0:10:290:10:31

Five of those answers are impossible,

0:10:370:10:40

because they are not films starring Julia Roberts.

0:10:400:10:44

Your first job is to find those impossible answers and get

0:10:440:10:48

rid of them. Each impossible answer that you eliminate will add £100 to

0:10:480:10:53

today's prize pot.

0:10:530:10:55

-Where shall we start?

-Lost In Translation.

0:10:550:10:59

-Julia Roberts not in it.

-I don't think so.

0:10:590:11:01

For £100 in the prize pot, is Lost In Translation

0:11:010:11:04

an impossible answer?

0:11:040:11:05

It is.

0:11:080:11:09

Scarlett Johansson is the lead actress.

0:11:110:11:13

Second answer, please.

0:11:130:11:15

Changeling.

0:11:150:11:17

Confident that Julia Roberts isn't in Changeling?

0:11:170:11:20

I think it might be Angelina Jolie, but I'm not 100% sure.

0:11:200:11:25

OK. Let's see.

0:11:250:11:27

Is Changeling an impossible answer?

0:11:270:11:29

It is. And it is Angelina Jolie who's in that film.

0:11:330:11:36

-Third answer, please.

-Struggling now.

0:11:360:11:39

Something's Got to Give.

0:11:400:11:42

Is Something's Got to Give an impossible answer?

0:11:430:11:46

Diane Keaton starred in that film.

0:11:500:11:53

So, three from three. Next go.

0:11:530:11:56

Conspiracy Theory.

0:11:560:11:58

Is Conspiracy Theory an impossible answer?

0:11:580:12:01

Unfortunately not.

0:12:050:12:07

Julia Roberts is in the film Conspiracy Theory.

0:12:070:12:09

Let's see if we can knock out one more impossible answer

0:12:090:12:12

with your final go.

0:12:120:12:14

Duplicity.

0:12:160:12:18

Is Duplicity a film starring Julia Roberts

0:12:180:12:22

or is it an impossible answer?

0:12:220:12:24

Unfortunately, that does star Julia Roberts.

0:12:300:12:32

Nevertheless, £300 in the prize pot.

0:12:320:12:36

We now need to work out if you're going to be playing for that money

0:12:360:12:39

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

0:12:390:12:43

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

0:12:430:12:46

and I'm now looking for the right answer.

0:12:460:12:49

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

0:12:490:12:52

If you give a wrong answer,

0:12:520:12:54

the next best player will have the chance to steal your place in the

0:12:540:12:58

final. That was Carol Marie.

0:12:580:13:01

All the way out there.

0:13:010:13:03

Ready to steal, Carol Marie?

0:13:030:13:05

Oh, indeed. I'm a huge Julia Roberts fan.

0:13:050:13:07

No pressure, Andrew!

0:13:080:13:10

Huge Julia Roberts fan waiting to steal.

0:13:100:13:13

Now, if you give me an impossible answer - and we know that,

0:13:130:13:15

unfortunately, there are two impossible answers still up

0:13:150:13:18

there on the grid - you'll be eliminated from today's show.

0:13:180:13:22

Let's reveal the full question.

0:13:220:13:24

That film would be...

0:13:370:13:39

Mona Lisa Smile.

0:13:390:13:41

If Mona Lisa Smile is the right answer...

0:13:420:13:44

..you'll be playing in today's final.

0:13:460:13:48

Yes, it is.

0:13:510:13:54

Well done, Andrew.

0:13:540:13:56

The impossible answers that you missed, Notes On A Scandal -

0:13:560:13:59

Judi Dench is in that - and North Country starring Charlize Theron.

0:13:590:14:05

Congratulations, Andrew. Take your place in the final.

0:14:050:14:08

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

0:14:120:14:16

Here is your first question.

0:14:160:14:18

The majority of you have gone with 1915.

0:14:370:14:41

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:14:410:14:44

It's 1915.

0:14:440:14:47

Well done to all of you. You get a point.

0:14:470:14:50

Jane, you're shaking your head a bit.

0:14:500:14:52

I know. The war hadn't even started in 1913.

0:14:520:14:56

It's the 1914-18 war.

0:14:560:14:58

Nevertheless, you went for 1913.

0:14:590:15:01

Oh, yeah. Well, I'm impossible.

0:15:010:15:04

Well, let's see if you are. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:15:040:15:07

I'm afraid so. World War I, as you said, started in 1914.

0:15:100:15:14

The Lusitania was torpedoed on the 7th of May 1915.

0:15:140:15:20

-Jane...

-Yeah?

-..you are the impossible answer.

0:15:200:15:23

As is Guy, as is Ray.

0:15:230:15:24

So, we have to say goodbye to you and we'll see you tomorrow.

0:15:240:15:27

-Bye.

-Moving on to question two.

0:15:270:15:30

LAUGHTER

0:15:390:15:41

No laughing.

0:15:410:15:43

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:15:430:15:45

It's C, Brooklyn.

0:15:470:15:49

A point to all of you

0:15:490:15:51

who went for Brooklyn.

0:15:510:15:53

Now we are hoping that Romeo is not the impossible answer.

0:15:530:15:58

-Alan...?

-Yes, Rick?

-do you follow the Beckham family tree?

0:15:580:16:02

Yes, and I realise I'd made a ridiculous mistake

0:16:020:16:05

and thought I'd changed

0:16:050:16:07

my mind in time, but I didn't.

0:16:070:16:09

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:16:090:16:13

It's Buddy Bear.

0:16:160:16:18

Buddy Bear is Jamie Oliver's son.

0:16:180:16:19

Oh, poor kid.

0:16:190:16:21

Question number three.

0:16:230:16:25

Everybody has gone for Dylan,

0:16:380:16:41

apart from a couple of Dougals.

0:16:410:16:43

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:16:430:16:46

It is B, Dylan.

0:16:460:16:49

A point to all of you.

0:16:490:16:51

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:16:510:16:53

It's Denzil. There is a character called Dougal, just not a rabbit.

0:16:540:16:59

Question number four.

0:16:590:17:01

So, a lot of you have gone for bara brith.

0:17:150:17:18

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:17:180:17:21

It's C, bara brith.

0:17:210:17:23

And the name means, "speckled bread."

0:17:230:17:26

So, a point to all of you.

0:17:260:17:28

-Gary...

-Yeah, in retrospect, bara brith sounds exceptionally Welsh.

0:17:280:17:33

It does, doesn't it?

0:17:330:17:35

Then, you know, sweetbread, that sounds like a fruit loaf...

0:17:350:17:39

-hopefully.

-Mm-hm.

0:17:390:17:41

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:17:420:17:44

It is A, Sweetbread.

0:17:470:17:49

Alan, Gary, it's a type of offal.

0:17:490:17:53

You wouldn't want that with your tea.

0:17:530:17:55

That's it for today, but we'll see you tomorrow.

0:17:550:17:57

Enjoy your tea.

0:17:570:17:58

So, going into our last question in this round,

0:18:000:18:03

three of you are on four points -

0:18:030:18:06

Jo, Gerard and Megan.

0:18:060:18:08

And remember it's how fast you've locked in your answers

0:18:080:18:12

across the whole round that will be important.

0:18:120:18:15

Question number five.

0:18:150:18:17

All of you have gone for

0:18:360:18:38

Clarence House.

0:18:380:18:40

Let's hope that's not impossible.

0:18:400:18:43

It is Clarence House.

0:18:430:18:45

So, everyone gets a point.

0:18:450:18:48

Let's quickly reveal the impossible answer.

0:18:480:18:50

Apsley House, not a royal residence.

0:18:520:18:54

The former residence of the Duke of Wellington.

0:18:540:18:58

So, all three of you in the top row

0:18:580:19:00

got it right.

0:19:000:19:02

You're all on five points.

0:19:020:19:03

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

0:19:030:19:07

across the round...

0:19:070:19:09

was Jo.

0:19:090:19:11

THEY CHEER

0:19:110:19:13

Congratulations.

0:19:130:19:15

Jo, you have the chance to grab a place in today's final

0:19:150:19:18

alongside Andrew.

0:19:180:19:20

Very popular finalist, Jo.

0:19:250:19:27

Tell us a bit about yourself.

0:19:280:19:31

Mum of three - sometimes beautiful - girls.

0:19:310:19:35

Full-time mummy, which is obviously -

0:19:350:19:37

I'm sure all the ladies up there will agree -

0:19:370:19:39

-it's the hardest job of the lot.

-Uh-huh.

0:19:390:19:41

Cos you do a bit of everything.

0:19:410:19:43

OK. If you were to win some money here...

0:19:430:19:45

Yeah, if I was to win money,

0:19:450:19:47

I think it would be to send the eldest two to some really good drama

0:19:470:19:50

-school.

-OK.

-So, they can keep me in my dotage.

0:19:500:19:53

Yeah, I can sit back and be a lady of leisure

0:19:530:19:55

-and be kept by my rich and famous daughters.

-Wow.

0:19:550:19:58

You have the chance now to put another £500

0:19:580:20:01

into today's prize pot.

0:20:010:20:03

You can also take a huge step towards

0:20:030:20:06

playing the £10,000 question.

0:20:060:20:09

Of the three remaining topics, which do you fancy?

0:20:090:20:13

Best of a bad bunch.

0:20:140:20:16

-Books & Literature.

-OK, here are your nine answers.

0:20:160:20:21

And the first half of the question...

0:20:400:20:42

Which book in CS Lewis's Chronicles Of Narnia series...

0:20:450:20:50

Five of those answers are impossible,

0:20:500:20:53

because they are not in the Chronicles Of Narnia series.

0:20:530:20:57

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

0:20:570:21:02

Where do you want to start?

0:21:020:21:05

I'll start with A Little Princess.

0:21:050:21:07

Confident that's not in Narnia?

0:21:090:21:11

Fairly confident, yeah.

0:21:110:21:14

Is A Little Princess an impossible answer?

0:21:140:21:16

It is. £100 into the prize pot.

0:21:220:21:25

Well done. It is by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

0:21:250:21:27

Second answer, please.

0:21:290:21:31

Stormbreaker.

0:21:310:21:32

Is it an impossible answer?

0:21:330:21:35

Yes, it is.

0:21:380:21:39

It's by Anthony Horowitz.

0:21:390:21:42

Third answer, please, Jo.

0:21:420:21:44

Erm...

0:21:440:21:45

I'm going to cross my fingers and go for I Capture The Castle.

0:21:470:21:51

Is I Capture The Castle an impossible answer?

0:21:510:21:54

It is. Well done. £300 added to the prize pot.

0:21:580:22:01

That's by Dodie Smith.

0:22:010:22:03

Two more impossibles up there.

0:22:030:22:06

Let's see if you can eliminate both of them.

0:22:060:22:08

And just going to take a punt on The Magician's Nephew and just hope.

0:22:080:22:13

Is The Magician's Nephew an impossible answer?

0:22:130:22:16

-Oh.

-I'm afraid it isn't.

0:22:180:22:21

It is in the Chronicles Of Narnia series.

0:22:210:22:24

Let's see if we can eliminate one more impossible

0:22:240:22:27

to put another £100 into the prize pot.

0:22:270:22:29

I'll go for The...

0:22:310:22:33

..Silmarillion.

0:22:340:22:36

We're hoping it's an impossible answer.

0:22:380:22:40

It is.

0:22:430:22:44

By JRR Tolkien.

0:22:440:22:47

So, that's £400 added to the prize fund.

0:22:470:22:51

We now need to see if you're going to be playing for that money

0:22:510:22:54

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

0:22:540:22:58

When I reveal the second half of the question,

0:22:580:23:01

you need to tell me the right answer.

0:23:010:23:04

If you find it, you're in the final with Andrew.

0:23:040:23:07

If you get a wrong answer, the next best player...

0:23:070:23:10

..your neighbour, Gerard...

0:23:110:23:13

..is ready to steal your place in the final.

0:23:150:23:18

The full question is...

0:23:180:23:20

I played Edmund in the school's production of The Lion,

0:23:310:23:34

The Witch And The Wardrobe.

0:23:340:23:36

So, just...

0:23:360:23:38

because it's the one I'm very familiar with,

0:23:380:23:41

and it's probably very wrong,

0:23:410:23:43

so I'll go for The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe.

0:23:430:23:46

OK. Is The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe the right answer?

0:23:460:23:50

It is!

0:23:530:23:54

Oh, my God!

0:23:540:23:56

Congratulations.

0:23:560:23:58

-You're in the final.

-Oh, my God.

0:23:580:24:00

The impossible that you missed was The Little Prince.

0:24:000:24:03

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

0:24:030:24:06

Please, take your place next to Andrew.

0:24:060:24:08

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

0:24:110:24:15

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

0:24:150:24:16

There's only nine surviving now.

0:24:160:24:19

Here is your first question.

0:24:190:24:21

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:24:330:24:35

It is B, Citroen.

0:24:370:24:39

So, a point to all of you.

0:24:390:24:41

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

0:24:410:24:44

The impossible answer was Fiat.

0:24:440:24:46

Fiat is an Italian car company.

0:24:460:24:48

Renault is French.

0:24:480:24:50

So, you've escaped, Helen.

0:24:500:24:51

Moving on to question two.

0:24:510:24:53

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:25:050:25:07

It is Arthur Fowler.

0:25:090:25:11

The impossible answer is...

0:25:110:25:13

Len Ganley.

0:25:160:25:18

He's a snooker referee. Question number three.

0:25:180:25:20

You've all gone

0:25:340:25:35

Strawberry Fields Forever.

0:25:350:25:37

Again, let's hope it's the right answer.

0:25:370:25:40

Is it?

0:25:400:25:41

Yes, it is. Points to all of you.

0:25:430:25:46

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

0:25:460:25:48

Yes, Ruby Tuesday is the impossible answer.

0:25:500:25:53

It's a Rolling Stones track.

0:25:530:25:55

Hard to separate the pack at this stage

0:25:550:25:57

as we move on to question four.

0:25:570:25:59

We have split the pack here.

0:26:170:26:19

We've got a full spread of answers.

0:26:190:26:21

Most of you think Thomasina Miers.

0:26:210:26:24

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:26:240:26:25

It is Thomasina Miers.

0:26:270:26:29

She won MasterChef in 2005.

0:26:290:26:33

Points to all of you.

0:26:330:26:34

Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:26:340:26:37

It's C, India Fisher.

0:26:400:26:42

Your luck has run out, Helen.

0:26:420:26:44

India Fisher actually narrates the show, but we will see you again

0:26:440:26:47

tomorrow. So, as we go on to our final question,

0:26:470:26:51

we have six people tied on four points.

0:26:510:26:55

They are Ash, Deb, Carol Marie,

0:26:550:26:59

Gerard, Megan and Paul.

0:26:590:27:02

So, who has locked in their answers the quickest across the round

0:27:020:27:06

may well be a factor here.

0:27:060:27:08

Question five.

0:27:080:27:10

So, our answers are split between

0:27:270:27:30

Discovery and Endurance.

0:27:300:27:33

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:27:330:27:35

It's Atlantis.

0:27:370:27:39

So, no-one gets a point,

0:27:390:27:41

no-one got that right.

0:27:410:27:43

However, several of you must have given an impossible answer.

0:27:430:27:49

-Gerard.

-Yes, Rick?

0:27:490:27:51

Having a good couple of rounds.

0:27:510:27:52

You went for Discovery.

0:27:520:27:54

Yeah, I thought it was Discovery,

0:27:540:27:56

because the name rang a bell.

0:27:560:27:58

I'm now starting to panic in case Discovery was an unmanned probe they

0:27:580:28:02

sent off to discover the outer reaches of the solar system.

0:28:020:28:06

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:28:060:28:10

It's Endurance.

0:28:130:28:15

Endurance is not a Nasa space shuttle.

0:28:150:28:19

That means Ash, Dan and Deb, we have to say goodbye to you.

0:28:190:28:24

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

0:28:240:28:26

Of the surviving five players, four of you are on four points.

0:28:280:28:35

The fastest to lock in your answers over that round...

0:28:350:28:38

..is Paul.

0:28:390:28:42

THEY CHEER Congratulations, Paul.

0:28:420:28:44

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

0:28:440:28:47

final alongside Andrew and Jo.

0:28:470:28:49

Congratulations, Paul. First time down here playing a grid.

0:28:530:28:56

-Feeling all right?

-Yeah, not too bad at all, Rick, thanks.

0:28:560:28:58

-Yeah, yeah.

-Good. Going in confident?

0:28:580:29:01

Yes, reasonably so.

0:29:010:29:03

As confident as you can be in this situation.

0:29:030:29:06

It is quite high pressure.

0:29:060:29:07

Yeah. I mean, even up there, every time the next question comes up,

0:29:070:29:11

there's that element of you just feel your heart beat quicken a

0:29:110:29:14

little bit, but if you don't want that feeling,

0:29:140:29:16

then you might as well be sat at home in your armchair.

0:29:160:29:19

You know, it's that little bit of excitement that's part of the buzz,

0:29:190:29:22

-to be honest, Rick.

-That's what we are all here for.

-Yeah, exactly.

0:29:220:29:25

That buzz. Now you're in the position where you can add another

0:29:250:29:28

-£500 to today's prize pot.

-Yeah.

0:29:280:29:30

Which already stands at £700.

0:29:300:29:32

-Right.

-Thanks to Andrew and Jo.

0:29:320:29:34

And you will also be a step closer towards

0:29:340:29:36

-playing that £10,000 question.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:29:360:29:39

Of the remaining topics...

0:29:390:29:41

Sport and Politics, which would you like to go for?

0:29:410:29:45

Well...

0:29:450:29:47

I think I would go with Sport, please.

0:29:470:29:50

OK. Sport it is.

0:29:500:29:52

Here are your nine answers.

0:29:520:29:54

And the first half of the question is...

0:30:090:30:12

Which Wimbledon ladies singles champion...

0:30:130:30:18

So, five of those are impossible.

0:30:180:30:20

They couldn't possibly be the answer to a question starting like that,

0:30:200:30:23

because they didn't win their Wimbledon ladies' singles title.

0:30:230:30:26

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

0:30:260:30:32

-OK, Rick.

-Who shall we start with?

0:30:320:30:34

So, I'll start on the people who I don't think won it and a really

0:30:340:30:39

fabulous looking girl, but I don't think she won Wimbledon,

0:30:390:30:42

I will start with Anna Kournikova, please.

0:30:420:30:45

Is Anna Kournikova an impossible answer?

0:30:450:30:48

Yes, she is.

0:30:520:30:54

She didn't win Wimbledon.

0:30:540:30:56

Did make the semifinal in 1997.

0:30:560:30:59

Let's have another answer.

0:30:590:31:01

Again, on those lines, again not a Wimbledon champion, I don't think,

0:31:010:31:05

Gabriela Sabatini.

0:31:050:31:07

Is Gabriela Sabatini an impossible answer?

0:31:070:31:10

She is.

0:31:130:31:15

She did make the final in 1991, but she didn't win it.

0:31:150:31:19

OK, Rick. Next I will move on to...

0:31:190:31:22

..Tracy Austin. I don't recall her ever being Wimbledon ladies' singles

0:31:230:31:27

-champion.

-Is Tracy Austin an impossible answer?

0:31:270:31:31

She is. £300 in the prize pot now.

0:31:340:31:37

She made the semifinal in '79 and '80.

0:31:370:31:41

-OK, Rick.

-So, £300 added to the prize pot.

0:31:410:31:44

-Right.

-Two more impossible answers up there.

0:31:440:31:46

Let's see if we can eliminate them.

0:31:460:31:48

OK. Justine Henin, I think you say the surname.

0:31:480:31:52

So, Justine Henin.

0:31:520:31:54

Is Justine Henin an impossible answer?

0:31:540:31:58

She is. Four from four.

0:32:010:32:04

Justine Henin made the final in 2001 and 2006, but didn't win.

0:32:040:32:09

One more impossible answer to find.

0:32:100:32:15

Yeah.

0:32:150:32:16

Well, I'm pretty sure on four of them,

0:32:160:32:20

which only leaves Monica Seles,

0:32:200:32:23

so she would be my final choice, Rick, please.

0:32:230:32:26

OK. Is Monica Seles an impossible answer?

0:32:260:32:30

She is. Five from five, Paul.

0:32:340:32:37

-CHEERING

-Cheers, Rick.

0:32:370:32:39

£500 added to the pot. Very well played indeed.

0:32:390:32:42

Monica Seles made the final in 1992.

0:32:420:32:45

We now need to see if you're going to be playing for a shot at the

0:32:450:32:48

£10,000 question in today's final.

0:32:480:32:51

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

0:32:510:32:56

Remember, the next best player from that round, who was Megan,

0:32:560:33:00

Megan is waiting to steal your place in the final if you give a wrong

0:33:000:33:04

answer. So, the full question is...

0:33:040:33:07

which Wimbledon ladies' singles champion

0:33:070:33:11

won the title five times in the 1990s?

0:33:110:33:15

I will go with...

0:33:180:33:20

..Martina Navratilova.

0:33:230:33:25

So...

0:33:250:33:27

is Martina Navratilova...

0:33:270:33:29

..the right answer?

0:33:310:33:33

-Oh.

-I'm afraid it isn't.

0:33:370:33:40

-Yeah, I had a feeling.

-She won it nine times.

0:33:400:33:44

-Mm-hm.

-Her last win was in 1990.

0:33:440:33:46

Yeah.

0:33:460:33:47

I'm sorry, Paul.

0:33:470:33:50

Because that's a wrong answer, Megan,

0:33:500:33:53

we now throw to you.

0:33:530:33:54

If you can give me the right answer,

0:33:540:33:56

you will steal Paul's place in the final.

0:33:560:34:00

I'm going to go Steffi Graf.

0:34:000:34:02

Is Steffi Graf the right answer?

0:34:020:34:04

It is.

0:34:090:34:11

Bad luck, Paul.

0:34:110:34:13

I'm sure we'll see you again. Yeah.

0:34:130:34:15

-Live to fight another day.

-Megan, you're through to today's final.

0:34:150:34:18

So, Andrew, Jo and Megan,

0:34:270:34:29

there is £1,200 in today's prize pot,

0:34:290:34:32

but only one of you can win that money

0:34:320:34:35

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

0:34:350:34:38

Megan, you told us before that you're hoping to go to Florida on

0:34:380:34:42

-your honeymoon, is that right?

-Yeah.

0:34:420:34:44

Yeah, so we are getting married next November.

0:34:440:34:46

-OK.

-So, it would really help us towards our ever-escalating wedding

0:34:460:34:50

costs that are so expensive.

0:34:500:34:52

All right.

0:34:520:34:54

You're each going to start with ten lives.

0:34:540:34:57

Questions are on the buzzer.

0:34:570:34:59

Most of them are normal, straightforward questions

0:34:590:35:02

with normal, straightforward answers.

0:35:020:35:04

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

0:35:040:35:08

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

0:35:080:35:12

However, some of the questions are impossible.

0:35:120:35:16

That is to say, there is no answer.

0:35:160:35:18

The question is illogical, it is absurd, it's preposterous.

0:35:180:35:22

For example, which species of fish is the largest creature ever to have

0:35:220:35:27

lived? The largest creature ever to have lived is the blue whale,

0:35:270:35:31

the blue whale isn't a fish, it's a mammal.

0:35:310:35:33

So, that's an impossible question.

0:35:330:35:35

If you think you've spotted an impossible question,

0:35:350:35:37

what you have to do is buzz in and say, "Impossible."

0:35:370:35:41

That will mean double trouble for your opponents,

0:35:410:35:44

as they will both lose two lives.

0:35:440:35:46

But be warned - if you say a question is impossible

0:35:460:35:50

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

0:35:500:35:54

it's you who will be losing the two lives.

0:35:540:35:57

So, tread carefully.

0:35:570:35:59

The last surviving player takes the £1,200.

0:35:590:36:03

Good luck. What is the title of the 2016 Bridget Jones film?

0:36:040:36:10

-Jo.

-Bridget Jones's Baby.

0:36:100:36:12

It is Bridget Jones's Baby.

0:36:120:36:14

Which Russian author wrote The Brothers Karamazov?

0:36:160:36:20

-Andrew.

-Dostoevsky.

0:36:200:36:22

It was Dostoevsky.

0:36:220:36:24

Which model of aircraft manufactured by Boeing is known...?

0:36:260:36:30

Megan.

0:36:300:36:32

-747?

-..is known as the jumbo jet?

0:36:320:36:35

It is the 747.

0:36:350:36:36

Well interrupted. Jo, you lose a life.

0:36:360:36:38

Andrew also loses a life.

0:36:380:36:40

Who did lawyer Cherie Booth marry in...?

0:36:420:36:45

-Jo.

-Tony Blair.

0:36:450:36:47

..in 1980?

0:36:470:36:48

It was Tony Blair.

0:36:480:36:50

Who was Holland's leading scorer at the Euro 20...?

0:36:520:36:56

Impossible.

0:36:560:36:57

..at the Euro 2016 finals tournament?

0:36:570:37:00

It is impossible.

0:37:000:37:02

They didn't qualify for the tournament.

0:37:020:37:04

Well played. That's two lives from Jo and two lives from Andrew.

0:37:040:37:08

Which leaf vegetable is a major ingredient of eggs Florentine?

0:37:100:37:15

-Jo.

-Impossible.

0:37:160:37:18

It's not impossible, I'm afraid.

0:37:190:37:21

It's spinach.

0:37:210:37:23

So, I'm afraid you lose two lives, Jo.

0:37:230:37:25

Who sang lead vocals on Fleetwood Mac's number one hit Albatross?

0:37:280:37:33

-Andrew.

-Impossible.

0:37:340:37:36

It is impossible. There are no vocals.

0:37:360:37:39

It's an instrumental.

0:37:390:37:40

That means, Jo, you lose another two lives and, Megan,

0:37:400:37:43

you also lose two lives.

0:37:430:37:45

In which month of 2016 was Britain's referendum on remaining...?

0:37:470:37:52

-Jo.

-June.

-..on remaining in the EU held?

0:37:530:37:56

It was June.

0:37:560:37:58

In which borough of New York City is the Yankee Stadium located?

0:38:000:38:04

-Andrew.

-The Bronx.

0:38:040:38:07

It is the Bronx.

0:38:070:38:09

How many sides does a parallelogram have?

0:38:110:38:14

-Jo.

-Four.

0:38:140:38:16

It is four.

0:38:160:38:17

This is tight.

0:38:200:38:23

Who became Speaker of the House of Commons in June...?

0:38:230:38:27

Jo.

0:38:270:38:29

-John Bercow.

-..in June 2009?

0:38:290:38:31

It was John Bercow.

0:38:310:38:35

Meaning it couldn't get much tighter.

0:38:350:38:38

Jo, you have one life, Megan, you have one life, Andrew, you have two.

0:38:380:38:42

What is the title of the fifth volume of JR...?

0:38:440:38:48

-Megan.

-Impossible.

0:38:480:38:51

..of JRR Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings?

0:38:510:38:55

It is impossible.

0:38:550:38:57

There are only three volumes.

0:38:570:39:00

Unbelievable play, Megan.

0:39:000:39:02

That knocks both of Andrew's lives off, and Jo's,

0:39:020:39:05

meaning you are the winner.

0:39:050:39:07

CHEERING

0:39:070:39:09

Fantastically well interrupted there, Megan.

0:39:100:39:13

Took a bit of a chance, but the chance really paid off.

0:39:140:39:18

Commiserations to both Andrew and Jo,

0:39:180:39:20

but we will see you again tomorrow.

0:39:200:39:22

Megan, it's time to face the £10,000 question.

0:39:220:39:25

Megan, you're today's winner with £1,200.

0:39:290:39:33

That is all well and good, but you could be leaving with a whole lot

0:39:330:39:37

more if you can answer the £10,000 question.

0:39:370:39:41

Here's how it works. I'm going to show you nine answers and then ask a

0:39:410:39:45

question. Three of the nine answers are correct and if you can find them

0:39:450:39:49

all within ten seconds you win that £10,000.

0:39:490:39:54

That is the good news.

0:39:540:39:56

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

0:39:560:40:00

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

0:40:000:40:04

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

0:40:040:40:08

If you give me any of those answers, you will lose the £1,200 as well.

0:40:080:40:13

I can only accept the first three answers you give,

0:40:130:40:16

-so be careful.

-OK.

0:40:170:40:20

Here it is.

0:40:210:40:23

Today's £10,000 question.

0:40:230:40:25

It is on Science.

0:40:270:40:29

-Good luck.

-Thank you.

0:40:310:40:32

Here are your nine answers.

0:40:320:40:35

You are looking for...

0:40:480:40:50

And your time starts now.

0:40:560:41:00

Potassium, sulphur and

0:41:000:41:03

helium.

0:41:030:41:05

We've got our three answers locked in.

0:41:120:41:16

So, in the order that you gave, the answers...

0:41:160:41:19

potassium.

0:41:190:41:21

Is it a right answer?

0:41:220:41:24

It is.

0:41:280:41:30

CHEERING

0:41:300:41:32

With the symbol K.

0:41:330:41:35

You then locked in sulphur.

0:41:380:41:41

Is sulphur a right answer?

0:41:410:41:44

It is.

0:41:480:41:51

Sulphur has the chemical symbol S.

0:41:510:41:55

So, £10,000 riding on this answer.

0:41:550:41:59

Your third answer.

0:41:590:42:00

You said helium. Is helium the right answer?

0:42:020:42:06

THEY GROAN

0:42:100:42:12

-Megan, it isn't. I'm so sorry.

-Benzene, is it?

0:42:120:42:15

Or electrum?

0:42:150:42:17

-It's neither of those either.

-That's OK. That's fine.

0:42:170:42:20

-That's fine.

-Helium is He.

0:42:200:42:24

The right answer you were looking for, oxygen.

0:42:240:42:27

The chemical symbol O.

0:42:270:42:30

-Oh, no.

-Nevertheless, Megan, you still won £1,200.

0:42:300:42:35

You avoided the impossible answers, which were benzene,

0:42:370:42:41

which is a compound, C6H6. Electrum,

0:42:410:42:45

which is an alloy mainly of gold and silver. And asbestos,

0:42:450:42:50

which is any of a group of several minerals.

0:42:500:42:54

So, Megan just narrowly missed out on the £10,000,

0:42:540:42:58

but won £1,200 and we'll see her next time.

0:42:580:43:02

This has been !mpossible, the quiz where anything is possible.

0:43:020:43:06

CHEERING Goodbye.

0:43:060:43:08

# Impossible

0:43:200:43:22

# Impossible. #
