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

0:00:130:00:15

Welcome to Impossible, the quiz with the third dimension.

0:00:150:00:18

Most quiz shows have just right answers and wrong answers,

0:00:180:00:20

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 blue,

0:00:320:00:34

the wrong answer is green, but there is no orange ball in snooker,

0:00:340:00:38

so that is an impossible answer.

0:00:380:00:40

Hoping to get lots of right answers,

0:00:400:00:42

whilst dodging those pesky impossible answers are 30 players.

0:00:420:00:46

-ALL:

-Hello!

0:00:460:00:47

Hello. They are with us throughout the series,

0:00:470:00:49

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

0:00:490:00:53

-ALL:

-Ooh!

0:00:530:00:55

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

0:00:550:00:58

-ALL:

-Ooh!

0:00:580:01:00

They are whoo-ing so loudly because they're sitting very close to an

0:01:000:01:04

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

0:01:040:01:09

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

0:01:090:01:13

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

0:01:140:01:18

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

0:01:180:01:22

Now, gang, we've had some incredibly close calls and several of you have

0:01:250:01:28

won some money but the £10,000 jackpot remains elusive.

0:01:280:01:34

Are we going to change that today?

0:01:340:01:35

-ALL:

-Yes!

-That's the attitude!

0:01:350:01:38

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

0:01:380:01:42

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

0:01:420:01:46

but if you choose the impossible answer...

0:01:460:01:49

# Impossible. #

0:01:490:01:51

..oh, dear, that immediately knocks you out of today's show.

0:01:510:01:55

-Are we all ready? ALL:

-Yes!

0:01:550:01:58

Here's your first question...

0:01:580:01:59

We have an overwhelming majority going for B, Kent.

0:02:120:02:18

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:02:180:02:21

It's Kent, meaning 27 of you get a point.

0:02:230:02:26

Dan, ever been to Wessex?

0:02:270:02:29

I don't think it exists, now I think about it.

0:02:290:02:32

I've definitely not been there and probably because it may not exist.

0:02:320:02:35

-Paul?

-I knew it wasn't Wessex, there's no such county.

0:02:350:02:38

I have heard of Ham and Sandwich.

0:02:380:02:39

I didn't know which one it was and just pressed 50-50.

0:02:390:02:42

I've got to say, not sounding good for you, Dan.

0:02:420:02:44

-No, it's not great.

-Let's reveal the impossible answer.

0:02:440:02:47

# Impossible. #

0:02:470:02:49

It is A, Wessex.

0:02:490:02:51

Wessex is the impossible answer.

0:02:510:02:53

Wessex isn't a county.

0:02:530:02:55

Dan, unfortunately we'll have to say goodbye after just one question.

0:02:550:02:58

We'll see you again tomorrow!

0:02:580:03:01

On to question two...

0:03:020:03:04

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:03:180:03:20

It is C, The Tempest. A point to all of you.

0:03:210:03:25

-Jane?

-Yep, well, I know The Winter's Tale is by Shakespeare,

0:03:250:03:28

-so I feel pretty happy about that.

-So you feel safe?

-Yeah, I feel safe.

0:03:280:03:31

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:03:310:03:34

The impossible answer is The Alchemist.

0:03:360:03:38

Not by Shakespeare, by his contemporary, Ben Jonson.

0:03:380:03:42

So everyone goes through to question three.

0:03:420:03:45

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:04:000:04:03

It's C, Henrik Stenson.

0:04:030:04:06

So all of you who put Henrik Stenson get a point.

0:04:060:04:09

Just one of you has put Jonas Blixt.

0:04:090:04:15

-I'm looking at you, Linda!

-Moi?!

-Yes!

0:04:150:04:20

I thought of C and then I thought, "No, I like the name Jonas Blixt."

0:04:200:04:24

-Maybe that'll work out, Linda.

-Who knows? Probably not!

0:04:240:04:29

Let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:04:290:04:31

It's Ingvar Kamprad.

0:04:350:04:37

Very Swedish name. The founder of IKEA.

0:04:370:04:41

Nine of you, I'm afraid, are eliminated

0:04:420:04:45

and we'll see you all tomorrow.

0:04:450:04:47

-Great news for you, Linda.

-Yeah!

0:04:490:04:52

For those of you left, including Linda, question number four...

0:04:520:04:56

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:05:100:05:12

It is B, Biretta.

0:05:130:05:15

Well done if you put that, a point to you.

0:05:150:05:17

-Linda.

-Aw!

-Don't want to feel like I'm picking on you.

0:05:170:05:21

I was thinking of biretta as a gun.

0:05:210:05:23

It was just... I thought, "It can't be that, it's a gun."

0:05:250:05:28

Jutti didn't sound right to me.

0:05:280:05:30

It sounded more Indian to me.

0:05:300:05:32

Let's see what the impossible answer is...

0:05:320:05:35

-# Impossible. #

-I'm afraid it's A, Jutti.

0:05:370:05:40

It is type of Indian shoe. I'm sorry, Tracy.

0:05:400:05:44

-OK.

-We'll have to say goodbye for now,

0:05:440:05:46

but we'll see you again tomorrow.

0:05:460:05:48

-Linda.

-Me again.

-You're riding your luck.

0:05:480:05:51

I said it was Indian, didn't I? I said it sounded Indian.

0:05:510:05:54

Yes, you did say it sounded Indian and you were spot on.

0:05:540:05:57

A Chupalla is the one worn traditionally by people in Chile

0:05:570:06:00

and it's made out of straw.

0:06:000:06:03

Question number five...

0:06:030:06:05

Let's first reveal the right answer...

0:06:220:06:24

It's A, Gary Hume.

0:06:260:06:29

Nine of you get a point.

0:06:290:06:32

Richard, you went for Jeff Koons.

0:06:320:06:34

Just purely on the fact I booked him next week to do my portrait.

0:06:340:06:37

So you'll know where he's from then, Richard?

0:06:400:06:42

Erm... Possibly.

0:06:420:06:44

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:06:440:06:47

# Impossible. #

0:06:470:06:50

It's C, Jeff Koons.

0:06:500:06:53

As you know, from having spoken to him on the phone, Richard,

0:06:530:06:56

-he's American.

-Yeah.

0:06:560:06:59

We lose Linda, Richard, Ritchie, Jane and Anne all in one fell swoop.

0:06:590:07:05

We'll see you all tomorrow. So, six of you have five points.

0:07:050:07:10

They are... Penny, Carol Marie, Guy, Gary, Bim and of course Andrew.

0:07:100:07:17

Very hard to separate the six of you but I can reveal that the fastest

0:07:190:07:24

to lock in their answers across the round was Gary!

0:07:240:07:27

APPLAUSE Congratulations, Gary,

0:07:270:07:31

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

0:07:310:07:35

-Nice to see you again, Gary.

-You, too, Rick.

0:07:410:07:44

-Fifth time down playing a grid now.

-Yeah, that one surprised me.

0:07:440:07:48

I thought it was very slow, so very surprised to be here.

0:07:480:07:50

OK, last time you were here you got through to the final.

0:07:500:07:54

-That's right.

-You faced the £10,000 question,

0:07:540:07:56

you didn't quite crack it but you did, nevertheless, get £1,200.

0:07:560:08:03

You have a chance now, Gary, to put up to £500 into today's prize pot

0:08:030:08:07

and crucially, take a massive step towards

0:08:070:08:10

playing the £10,000 question again.

0:08:100:08:14

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

0:08:140:08:16

-It's served me well so far, so Geography, please.

-Of course it is.

0:08:220:08:25

-Thank you.

-Here are your nine answers...

0:08:250:08:28

And the first half of the question...

0:08:390:08:41

-You're chuckling.

-Yeah, I think I'm...

0:08:450:08:47

..hopefully quite confident.

0:08:490:08:51

OK. I'm going to tell you five of those answers are impossible

0:08:510:08:55

because they aren't state capitals.

0:08:550:08:57

Each impossible answer you manage to eliminate

0:08:570:09:00

will add £100 to today's prize pot.

0:09:000:09:03

Where shall we start?

0:09:030:09:04

San Francisco, please.

0:09:060:09:08

-I think Sacramento's the state capital of California.

-OK.

0:09:080:09:11

And I think San Francisco's in California.

0:09:110:09:14

So, pretty... That's why I went for it first because I'm very confident.

0:09:140:09:18

OK. Gary's confident. Let's see if he is right to be.

0:09:180:09:22

Is San Francisco an impossible answer?

0:09:220:09:25

Yes, it is. APPLAUSE

0:09:270:09:29

You're absolutely right, it's in California

0:09:290:09:32

and the state capital is Sacramento. Where next?

0:09:320:09:36

Well, I'm not sure what state Wichita's in

0:09:360:09:40

-but I'm fairly certain it is not a US state capital.

-OK.

0:09:400:09:43

Is Wichita an impossible answer?

0:09:430:09:46

Yes, it is. Confidently done so far. APPLAUSE

0:09:490:09:52

-So far!

-Let's have your third answer.

-Lexington, please.

0:09:520:09:55

Is Lexington an impossible answer?

0:09:550:09:58

APPLAUSE

0:10:000:10:02

Lexington is in Kentucky. Any idea of the state capital?

0:10:030:10:06

-No, not off the top of my head.

-Frankfort.

-That's it.

0:10:060:10:09

-Tip of my tongue.

-OK, fourth answer, please, Gary?

0:10:090:10:13

Albuquerque, please.

0:10:130:10:15

-Where's Albuquerque?

-I think it's New Mexico.

0:10:150:10:18

I think Santa Fe is the state capital of New Mexico.

0:10:180:10:22

OK. Is Albuquerque...

0:10:220:10:24

..an impossible answer?

0:10:250:10:27

APPLAUSE It is. £400.

0:10:290:10:32

You were spot on, it is in New Mexico

0:10:320:10:34

and the state capital is Santa Fe.

0:10:340:10:36

Let's see if we can put £500 into the prize pot.

0:10:360:10:39

Yeah, this is just where it's slightly tricky.

0:10:390:10:43

Sorry, just... In my head...

0:10:430:10:45

I think Kansas City is not...

0:10:450:10:47

..a state capital.

0:10:480:10:51

Is Kansas City an impossible answer?

0:10:510:10:53

APPLAUSE It is. £500 going to the prize pot.

0:10:550:11:01

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

0:11:010:11:04

and I'm now looking for the right answer.

0:11:040:11:07

Find it, a place in the final is yours,

0:11:070:11:10

give a wrong answer and the next best player will have the chance

0:11:100:11:14

to steal your place in the final.

0:11:140:11:16

I can reveal that it was your old nemesis, Andrew.

0:11:160:11:21

THEY LAUGH

0:11:210:11:23

Andrew always on standby.

0:11:230:11:26

Andrew can't believe he's not here anyway.

0:11:260:11:29

Let's reveal the full question...

0:11:290:11:31

Oh, dear! Dear, dear, dear.

0:11:400:11:42

I thought the most southerly would have been Florida's,

0:11:420:11:46

but it's not there so I will go...

0:11:460:11:50

Atlanta, please.

0:11:500:11:53

Is Atlanta the most southerly US state capital on mainland America?

0:11:540:12:00

GROANS

0:12:020:12:05

It isn't, I'm afraid. That's the wrong answer.

0:12:050:12:09

Andrew, if you get this right, you steal Gary's place in the final.

0:12:090:12:14

So which one do you want to lock in, Andrew?

0:12:140:12:16

I'm going to go for Austin.

0:12:160:12:18

Is Austin the most southerly US state capital on mainland America?

0:12:180:12:25

APPLAUSE It is!

0:12:270:12:29

And it was Austin, Texas, Andrew.

0:12:310:12:33

Phoenix is the state capital of Arizona.

0:12:330:12:36

Atlanta, state capital of Georgia

0:12:360:12:39

and Augusta the state capital of Maine.

0:12:390:12:42

-Gary, he's done you!

-I know, second time!

0:12:420:12:45

You're back in the pack for the next round.

0:12:450:12:47

I'm sorry. Andrew, you're going through to today's final.

0:12:470:12:51

APPLAUSE

0:12:510:12:53

Still two places left in today's final.

0:12:560:13:00

13 of you left. The pack is thinning.

0:13:000:13:03

-Everyone ready? ALL:

-Yes!

0:13:030:13:06

Here is your first question...

0:13:060:13:08

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:13:220:13:24

It's C, Davy Jones.

0:13:250:13:27

A point to five of you.

0:13:270:13:30

Paul, you went for Captain Jack Harkness.

0:13:300:13:32

Davy Jones' locker is the bottom of the sea,

0:13:320:13:34

so I thought that is the red herring.

0:13:340:13:36

I thought, I'll go for Captain Jack...

0:13:360:13:39

Of course, when you get a little bit of thinking time,

0:13:390:13:41

you realise that it's Sparrow and I think Harkness is a character played

0:13:410:13:45

by John Barrowman in Torchwood, is it?

0:13:450:13:48

As far as I'm concerned, Rick, I think it's man overboard.

0:13:480:13:52

Well, let's see if it is man overboard.

0:13:520:13:55

Let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:13:550:13:57

# Impossible. #

0:13:570:13:59

Yes, the impossible answer is Captain Jack Harkness.

0:13:590:14:02

Someone throw that man a life ring.

0:14:020:14:04

Captain Jack Harkness is in Doctor Who and Torchwood

0:14:050:14:08

and played by John Barrowman.

0:14:080:14:10

Paul and Annie, we have to lose you both.

0:14:100:14:12

We'll see you tomorrow.

0:14:120:14:14

Question number two...

0:14:150:14:17

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:14:360:14:39

It's B, Ein Bisschen Frieden.

0:14:390:14:42

That was a UK number one in 1982 as A Little Peace.

0:14:420:14:46

Three of you get a point.

0:14:460:14:49

-Carol Marie.

-I think I had 99 Red Balloons going through my head

0:14:490:14:53

and I don't know the German for red

0:14:530:14:55

and I just looked at the others and nothing really leapt out,

0:14:550:14:58

so I just went with the song going in my head.

0:14:580:15:00

OK. Let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:15:000:15:03

It's A, 99 Luftballons!

0:15:060:15:11

Not a Eurovision song.

0:15:110:15:13

It was a UK number one in 1984 for Nena, 99 Red Balloons.

0:15:130:15:19

C, Apres Toi did win Eurovision for Luxembourg in 1972.

0:15:190:15:25

Meaning we have to lose Carol Marie, Megan, Guy, Gary and Kurtis.

0:15:250:15:32

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

0:15:320:15:34

Only six of you left for question three...

0:15:360:15:39

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:15:540:15:57

It's Gladstone. So the three of you get a point.

0:15:570:16:01

Let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:16:010:16:04

It's Herbert Henry Asquith, so you all managed to avoid it.

0:16:050:16:09

He was not a Prime Minister when Victoria was alive.

0:16:090:16:13

So you all survive. Moving on to question four...

0:16:130:16:16

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:16:290:16:31

It's B, Terry Wogan. A point to you four.

0:16:330:16:36

-Parin?

-This set-up looks like Blankety Blank, doesn't it,

0:16:380:16:40

-without the rotating stage?

-It does.

0:16:400:16:42

So I'm confident Les Dawson did it but I thought it was the first

0:16:420:16:46

six series, to be fair, obviously not.

0:16:460:16:49

OK, let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:16:490:16:51

# Impossible. #

0:16:530:16:55

Sorry, Bim, the impossible answer is Bob Monkhouse. Never hosted it.

0:16:550:16:58

It means we're going to have to say goodbye,

0:16:580:17:01

-Bim, and we'll see you tomorrow.

-Bye.

-Bye!

0:17:010:17:04

Parin, you're right, Les Dawson did host it, but after Terry Wogan.

0:17:040:17:09

Question number five...

0:17:090:17:11

This time, let's go for the impossible reveal first...

0:17:240:17:28

# Impossible. #

0:17:290:17:31

It's A, Netball.

0:17:310:17:33

Netball has never been in the Olympics, I'm afraid, Deb.

0:17:330:17:36

-You're eliminated. We'll see you tomorrow.

-OK, thank you.

0:17:370:17:41

Gerard, you're the only one who thought volleyball.

0:17:430:17:45

When I was at school, I occasionally

0:17:450:17:48

had to play basketball in PE lessons.

0:17:480:17:53

And I'm pretty sure that there are seven in a basketball team.

0:17:530:17:56

OK, let's reveal the right answer...

0:17:560:18:01

It is C, volleyball.

0:18:030:18:06

Gerard, you said seven players in a basketball team.

0:18:060:18:09

Actually, there would be ten players on court at any one time,

0:18:090:18:12

just five from each team.

0:18:120:18:13

Nevertheless, you did get it right with volleyball.

0:18:130:18:16

You get a point. You are the winner,

0:18:160:18:19

with four points. APPLAUSE

0:18:190:18:21

Congratulations, you have the chance to grab a place in today's final alongside Andrew.

0:18:210:18:26

-Gerard, congratulations.

-Thank you.

-Down here for the first time.

0:18:320:18:36

-How does it feel?

-I'm feeling slightly unreal.

-OK.

0:18:360:18:41

We know that you do a bit of hospital radio stuff.

0:18:410:18:44

If you got your hands...

0:18:440:18:46

..on the £10,000, what would it go on?

0:18:470:18:50

-I'd like to buy a piece of equipment for the hospital radio.

-Oh, yeah?

0:18:500:18:55

We're trying to re-equip one of our two studios to bring it up

0:18:550:19:00

to the standard of the other and it all costs money,

0:19:000:19:02

so I'd like to try and make a donation towards that

0:19:020:19:06

and buy or sponsor a piece of techy gear.

0:19:060:19:08

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

0:19:080:19:13

which already stands at £500.

0:19:130:19:16

You can also take a massive step towards playing for the £10,000 question.

0:19:160:19:22

Of the three remaining topics, which do you fancy?

0:19:220:19:27

Popular Music, Animals or History?

0:19:270:19:31

Right, you're probably expecting me to say Popular Music...

0:19:310:19:34

-I am.

-What's popular on hospital radio,

0:19:340:19:37

might not be popular with your question setters,

0:19:370:19:39

so I'm going take a gamble on History.

0:19:390:19:41

A gamble on History, I like that, Gerard.

0:19:410:19:45

Here are your nine answers...

0:19:450:19:47

The first half of the question...

0:20:050:20:07

Five of those answers are impossible

0:20:130:20:16

because they didn't take place in the 17th century.

0:20:160:20:20

Each impossible answer you get rid of,

0:20:200:20:22

we'll add £100 to today's prize pot.

0:20:220:20:25

-Feeling confident?

-Reasonably.

0:20:260:20:30

-Reasonably. I'll take reasonably.

-Right.

0:20:300:20:32

So, the French Revolution started in 1789.

0:20:320:20:37

Is French Revolution an impossible answer?

0:20:370:20:40

APPLAUSE Yes, it is. Bang on.

0:20:430:20:48

-Second answer.

-Peasants' Revolt was much earlier.

-How much earlier?

0:20:480:20:54

I think it was in the 1300s, probably the 14th century.

0:20:540:20:56

So, the Peasants' Revolt, is that an impossible answer?

0:20:560:21:00

APPLAUSE

0:21:010:21:04

The Peasants' Revolt was the 14th century, 1381.

0:21:040:21:07

Which event do you want to select next?

0:21:070:21:09

Erm...

0:21:110:21:13

The Defeat of the Spanish Armada.

0:21:130:21:16

Because that was in Elizabeth's reign, in something like the 1580s.

0:21:160:21:22

Is the Defeat of the Spanish Armada...

0:21:220:21:25

..an impossible answer?

0:21:260:21:28

APPLAUSE Yes, it is.

0:21:310:21:33

You said 16th century, you said 1580s.

0:21:330:21:36

-Thereabouts.

-1588.

-Right.

-Very good, Gerard.

0:21:360:21:39

Fourth answer, please.

0:21:390:21:41

William Shakespeare I think was born in the 16th,

0:21:410:21:45

because he was writing plays for Queen Elizabeth.

0:21:450:21:51

Or at least at...during her reign.

0:21:510:21:53

So Birth of William Shakespeare, please.

0:21:530:21:56

Is the Birth of William Shakespeare an impossible answer?

0:21:560:22:00

APPLAUSE It is. He was born in 1564.

0:22:020:22:06

One more impossible answer is still up there.

0:22:060:22:10

-Let's try and get rid of it.

-OK.

0:22:100:22:12

I don't know when it was...

0:22:120:22:14

I'm not even sure where it was.

0:22:150:22:18

It was in Scotland but that's all I know.

0:22:180:22:20

-The Battle of Culloden, let's get rid of that.

-OK.

0:22:200:22:24

APPLAUSE It is. Very well done, Gerard.

0:22:260:22:30

-Thank you!

-£500 added to the prize pot, which now stands at £1,000.

0:22:300:22:36

You sailed through that. Let's now see the second half of the question.

0:22:360:22:41

You need to tell me the right answer.

0:22:410:22:44

Find it, you'll be in the final,

0:22:440:22:47

give me a wrong answer and the next best player, who was Penny...

0:22:470:22:51

..is waiting in the wings to steal your place.

0:22:530:22:56

The full question is...

0:22:580:23:01

I'm pretty sure it was when Charles I got the chop.

0:23:110:23:16

So the Execution of Charles I is my answer.

0:23:160:23:20

Is the Execution of Charles I the right answer?

0:23:200:23:25

-APPLAUSE

-Whoa!

-It is!

0:23:270:23:29

-Congratulations, Gerard.

-Thank you, Rick.

-Safely through to the final.

0:23:290:23:33

-Take a seat.

-Thank you.

0:23:330:23:36

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

0:23:410:23:47

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

0:23:470:23:49

Only three people surviving now - Penny, Parin and Ray.

0:23:490:23:53

If at any point we only have one player left,

0:23:530:23:56

they automatically win the round.

0:23:560:23:58

-Are the three of you ready?

-Yes.

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:24:000:24:03

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

0:24:030:24:07

You've all gone for Judge John Deed.

0:24:260:24:29

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:24:290:24:31

It is Judge John Deed. A point to all of you.

0:24:320:24:36

The impossible answer was...

0:24:360:24:39

Judge Jules. He is a DJ and entertainment lawyer.

0:24:400:24:46

Question number two...

0:24:460:24:47

Interestingly, we have one of each answer.

0:24:580:25:02

That means one of you is about to be eliminated.

0:25:030:25:08

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:25:080:25:10

It's B, Catching Fire.

0:25:130:25:15

So, Penny nicks ahead, getting a point.

0:25:150:25:20

Let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:25:200:25:23

# Impossible. #

0:25:250:25:27

It's C, Breaking Dawn.

0:25:270:25:29

That book is in the Twilight series, Parin.

0:25:290:25:32

We'll see you again tomorrow.

0:25:320:25:34

Question number three...

0:25:360:25:38

Let's reveal the right answer.

0:25:530:25:57

A point to you, Ray, bringing you level on points with Penny.

0:26:000:26:04

But, Penny, have you given an impossible answer?

0:26:040:26:07

-No.

-No, she says.

0:26:070:26:10

Let's reveal the impossible answer...

0:26:100:26:12

It is Paddy Ashdown.

0:26:140:26:16

He was the former Liberal Democrat leader,

0:26:160:26:19

so you live to fight on, Penny.

0:26:190:26:21

Question number four...

0:26:210:26:24

You have both gone for Yarg.

0:26:360:26:39

Let's reveal the right answer...

0:26:390:26:41

It is Yarg. A point to both of you.

0:26:420:26:45

Yarg spells Gray backwards,

0:26:450:26:47

which is the surname of the couple who created the cheese

0:26:470:26:50

from a 17th century recipe they found in their attic.

0:26:500:26:54

The impossible answer is...

0:26:540:26:56

It is a Dutch cheese named after the city it was originally made.

0:27:000:27:03

This is unbelievably poised.

0:27:030:27:06

Three points apiece, Ray versus Penny.

0:27:060:27:11

Are you ready for question five, the final question?

0:27:110:27:14

You have both gone for Gary Kasparov.

0:27:270:27:31

Let's hope you haven't both given the impossible answer.

0:27:310:27:34

C, Andropov was the head of the KGB.

0:27:370:27:40

So let's find out if you've both given the right answer.

0:27:400:27:43

The right answer is...

0:27:430:27:45

Gary Kasparov.

0:27:470:27:49

Meaning you both finish on four points.

0:27:490:27:51

However, the fastest player...

0:27:510:27:54

-..was Penny.

-Yes!

-APPLAUSE

0:27:550:27:57

Good celebration, Penny.

0:28:000:28:01

Congratulations.

0:28:010:28:03

You have the chance to grab the last place

0:28:030:28:06

in today's final alongside Andrew and Gerard.

0:28:060:28:08

Penny, that was...

0:28:150:28:18

It had my heart racing.

0:28:180:28:20

-And mine!

-You made it through, though.

0:28:200:28:23

-Oh, yes.

-You must be delighted?

0:28:230:28:25

I'm absolutely ecstatic to be here again.

0:28:250:28:28

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

0:28:280:28:33

which already stands at £1,000 and you'll also be a step closer towards

0:28:330:28:39

playing the £10,000 question.

0:28:390:28:42

Of the remaining topics, Animals and Popular Music, you want to go for?

0:28:420:28:46

-Animals.

-OK, here are your nine answers...

0:28:460:28:49

And the first half of the question...

0:29:020:29:04

Marvellous. Not what I was hoping for.

0:29:090:29:13

Ah, you were hoping for animals that are alive, maybe?

0:29:130:29:16

Possibly, yes.

0:29:160:29:18

Five of those are impossible because they aren't extinct animals.

0:29:180:29:23

-Right.

-You need to find those impossible answers.

0:29:230:29:27

Which one should we start with?

0:29:270:29:29

-Quagga.

-Are you familiar with the quagga?

-No.

0:29:300:29:34

Is Quagga an impossible answer?

0:29:340:29:38

LAUGHS I'm afraid not.

0:29:410:29:44

Quagga is an extinct animal.

0:29:440:29:46

Remember, we are looking for living animals.

0:29:460:29:49

-Thylacine.

-Is Thylacine an impossible answer?

0:29:510:29:55

No. Thylacine is an extinct animal.

0:29:590:30:04

-OK.

-Three guesses left, though, to put it right.

-All right. Narwhal.

0:30:040:30:09

Narwhal. You know the narwhal?

0:30:090:30:13

Some kind of animal with a large protruding horn.

0:30:130:30:17

Let's see.

0:30:190:30:21

It is! APPLAUSE

0:30:220:30:24

Let's see if we can find another couple of impossible answers.

0:30:240:30:26

OK, Duckbilled Platypus. That's a mammal from Australia.

0:30:260:30:30

APPLAUSE It is!

0:30:320:30:34

It's a semiaquatic, egg-laying mammal.

0:30:340:30:37

Next answer, please.

0:30:370:30:39

Brilliant, I'm going to go for Moa.

0:30:390:30:43

-It isn't.

-Brilliant job(!)

0:30:460:30:48

But you have put an extra £200 into the prize fund,

0:30:480:30:52

which now stands at £1,200.

0:30:520:30:56

But will you be playing for that money

0:30:560:30:59

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

0:30:590:31:02

-I doubt it.

-You need to give me the right answer

0:31:020:31:06

when I reveal the whole question.

0:31:060:31:09

The next best player from that round of course was Ray.

0:31:090:31:14

He is waiting to steal your place in the final

0:31:140:31:17

if you give a wrong answer.

0:31:170:31:19

There are, unfortunately, three...

0:31:200:31:23

..impossible answers still on the grid.

0:31:240:31:27

If you give me any of those...

0:31:270:31:29

..you will be eliminated.

0:31:300:31:33

The full question is...

0:31:330:31:35

At risk of getting an impossible and leaving it wide open

0:31:410:31:44

for my friend behind me, the Tarsier.

0:31:440:31:48

Is Tarsier the right answer?

0:31:490:31:52

# Impossible. #

0:31:540:31:56

No, Penny!

0:31:560:31:58

The tarsier is a small primate.

0:31:580:32:01

-I'm so sorry.

-Gutted!

0:32:010:32:04

Now, Penny, somebody has got to take your place in the final.

0:32:040:32:07

We're going to start by throwing the question to the next best player,

0:32:070:32:12

which is Ray. What do you think?

0:32:120:32:14

-Fossa.

-Was the Fossa commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger?

0:32:140:32:19

# Impossible. #

0:32:210:32:23

The fossa is living and it is a cat-like animal,

0:32:240:32:29

related to the mongoose.

0:32:290:32:31

So we go to the last person who was eliminated, and that was Parin.

0:32:310:32:37

-I'm going to go for Quagga.

-OK.

0:32:370:32:39

Is Quagga the right answer?

0:32:400:32:44

No! The quagga is a type of the zebra

0:32:460:32:49

that went extinct in the 19th century.

0:32:490:32:53

The player eliminated before Parin was Deb.

0:32:530:32:58

I'm going to go for Aurochs.

0:32:590:33:02

Is Aurochs the right answer?

0:33:020:33:06

GASPS Aurochs is a large cattle.

0:33:090:33:14

It died out in the 17th century.

0:33:140:33:17

We are now going to go to Bim.

0:33:170:33:21

I'll go for Moa.

0:33:210:33:23

LAUGHS

0:33:250:33:27

-I don't know it!

-Moa is an extinct flightless bird from New Zealand.

0:33:270:33:34

The next player we go to...

0:33:340:33:36

is Kurtis.

0:33:360:33:38

You have a choice of two.

0:33:380:33:41

I believe that the answer...

0:33:410:33:43

I apologise to everyone, what an awful way...

0:33:430:33:47

is Thylacine.

0:33:470:33:50

Is Thylacine the right answer?

0:33:500:33:53

Yeah! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:33:550:33:57

Kurtis, I don't think anyone saw that coming.

0:34:020:34:07

You have unexpectedly grabbed a place in the final.

0:34:070:34:11

Congratulations, go and take your place.

0:34:110:34:14

Andrew, Gerard and Kurtis, there is £1,200 in today's prize pot.

0:34:200:34:26

Only one of you can win that money

0:34:260:34:28

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

0:34:280:34:31

Now, Kurtis, if you did get your hands on that money,

0:34:310:34:34

what would you spend it on?

0:34:340:34:35

I'd definitely love to take my mum back to South Africa.

0:34:350:34:38

We've got family out there and we went out there about ten years ago.

0:34:380:34:41

The first time I'd met them, but I know Mum would love to go back out.

0:34:410:34:45

OK. You are each going to start with ten lives.

0:34:450:34:49

Questions are on the buzzer.

0:34:490:34:51

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

0:34:510:34:54

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

0:34:540:34:58

However, some of the questions are impossible,

0:34:580:35:02

which is to say there is no answer, the question is illogical,

0:35:020:35:05

it's preposterous, it makes no sense.

0:35:050:35:08

If you think you've spotted one of these,

0:35:080:35:11

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

0:35:110:35:13

and that'll mean double trouble

0:35:130:35:15

for your opponents because they both lose two lives.

0:35:150:35:18

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

0:35:190:35:23

or give any other answer to an impossible question,

0:35:230:35:26

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

0:35:260:35:29

Good luck. At the 2015 general election,

0:35:290:35:33

for which party was Nigel Farage elected...?

0:35:330:35:36

BUZZER Kurtis?

0:35:360:35:38

BNP.

0:35:380:35:40

I'm afraid it's impossible.

0:35:400:35:42

He's never been elected an MP.

0:35:420:35:45

He came second in South Thanet for UKIP,

0:35:450:35:48

and that means you lose two lives, Kurtis.

0:35:480:35:51

# Impossible. #

0:35:510:35:53

Which singer-songwriter released

0:35:530:35:56

the 1970s hit albums Station To Station and...

0:35:560:36:00

-BUZZER Andrew?

-David Bowie.

0:36:000:36:03

..and Aladdin Sane? It is David Bowie.

0:36:030:36:05

Meaning, Gerard and Kurtis, you both lose a life.

0:36:050:36:08

Which Greek phrase is often abbreviated to the letters QED?

0:36:110:36:17

-BUZZER Gerard?

-Impossible.

0:36:170:36:20

It is impossible because they stand for quod erat demonstrandum,

0:36:200:36:24

which is a Latin phrase.

0:36:240:36:26

# Impossible. #

0:36:260:36:28

Which American novel has the opening line, "Call me Ishmael"?

0:36:280:36:33

-BUZZER Gerard?

-Moby-Dick.

0:36:330:36:36

It is Moby-Dick.

0:36:360:36:37

At his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011...

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

0:39:460:39:50

So, Andrew, you are today's winner with £1,200, which is lovely.

0:39:550:40:00

But you could be leaving with a whole lot more

0:40:000:40:03

if you can answer the £10,000 question.

0:40:030:40:06

This is your second shot at the £10,000,

0:40:060:40:09

which means it's also your last shot.

0:40:090:40:12

Whatever happens here,

0:40:120:40:13

we are going to be saying goodbye after this show.

0:40:130:40:16

We're all rooting for you. How are you feeling?

0:40:160:40:19

-Got to be positive this time.

-You've got to be positive.

0:40:190:40:23

Here's how it works, I'll just remind you.

0:40:230:40:25

I'll show you nine answers and then ask a question.

0:40:250:40:28

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

0:40:280:40:31

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

0:40:310:40:36

That's the good news.

0:40:360:40:38

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

0:40:380:40:40

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

0:40:400:40:44

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

0:40:440:40:48

Give me any of those, and you will lose the £1,200 as well.

0:40:480:40:52

OK, here it is.

0:40:540:40:56

Today's £10,000 question...

0:40:560:40:58

It's on Film. Good luck.

0:41:000:41:03

Here are your nine answers...

0:41:030:41:06

And you're looking for...

0:41:200:41:22

And your time starts now.

0:41:260:41:28

Live And Let Die,

A View To A Kill,

0:41:300:41:32

The Spy Who Loved Me.

0:41:320:41:34

You started with Live And Let Die.

0:41:390:41:43

Is Live And Let Die a right answer?

0:41:430:41:47

It is! APPLAUSE

0:41:490:41:52

Live And Let Die, 1973, starred Roger Moore as 007.

0:41:530:41:57

You then said A View To A Kill.

0:41:570:42:00

Is A View To A Kill a right answer?

0:42:000:42:04

Yes, it is! APPLAUSE

0:42:050:42:07

A View To A Kill, later, 1985, starred Roger Moore as 007.

0:42:090:42:14

Now, we've two right answers

0:42:160:42:19

and we just need one more answer for that £10,000.

0:42:190:42:25

If Roger Moore played 007 in The Spy Who Loved Me,

0:42:250:42:30

you're going home with £10,000.

0:42:300:42:33

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE It is! Down it comes!

0:42:400:42:43

It's the right answer!

0:42:480:42:50

0:42:540:42:58

You've been a fantastic player throughout the show.

0:42:580:43:03

What a way to say goodbye!

0:43:030:43:06

I'm so chuffed for you, Andrew. You're going to go on that cruise.

0:43:060:43:08

I've no idea how you're going to get that money home,

0:43:080:43:11

but we'll figure it out!

0:43:110:43:12

Not that it particularly matters to you

0:43:120:43:14

but the wrong answers that you avoided -

0:43:140:43:15

From Russia With Love was Sean Connery,

0:43:150:43:17

Quantum Of Solace, Daniel Craig and Die Another Day was Pierce Brosnan.

0:43:170:43:20

The impossibles were Where Eagles Dare, Cape Fear and Face/Off.

0:43:200:43:25

They're not Bond films. None of that matters.

0:43:250:43:27

You've just won £10,000! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
