Hello and welcome to Only Connect, the show so clever it's being

0:00:210:00:24

turned into a film starring

0:00:240:00:26

Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne.

0:00:260:00:29

Who will they play?

0:00:290:00:31

Let's meet the teams.

0:00:310:00:32

On my right...

0:00:320:00:34

Neil Macaskill, a computer programmer

0:00:340:00:36

who's seen James Hunt in a bank queue

0:00:360:00:38

and Bruce Kent on the Central line.

0:00:380:00:40

Paul Philpot, an administrator

0:00:400:00:42

from Bristol who played basketball

0:00:420:00:44

with Olympian Jamie Baulch at

0:00:440:00:46

a water sports centre in Mid Wales.

0:00:460:00:48

And their captain - Andrew Frazer,

0:00:480:00:51

a company director who made

0:00:510:00:52

headlines in Cambridge when he was attacked by a local owl.

0:00:520:00:56

United by a fondness for films,

0:00:560:00:58

they are the Spaghetti Westerners.

0:00:580:01:00

Andrew, you beat the Mixologists in your first heat,

0:01:000:01:03

then you lost to the Railwaymen.

0:01:030:01:05

How are you feeling about tonight's game?

0:01:050:01:06

Well, on the basis that it can't go

0:01:060:01:08

any worse than last time,

0:01:080:01:09

we are looking forward to it

0:01:090:01:10

and we are quietly confident.

0:01:100:01:12

That's the spirit. You will be facing, on my left...

0:01:120:01:15

Paul Allen, a civil servant who

0:01:150:01:17

has pulled 22 pints in a minute

0:01:170:01:19

and used to work in a sausage factory.

0:01:190:01:21

Alex Hill, a statistics graduate

0:01:210:01:24

from Burnley who had dinner with

0:01:240:01:25

a regional president while holidaying in Ethiopia.

0:01:250:01:28

And their captain, Clare Lynch.

0:01:280:01:30

A civil servant and analyst who won a train set at the age of six

0:01:300:01:34

for correctly guessing the price of houses.

0:01:340:01:36

United by a soft spot for statistics,

0:01:360:01:38

they are the Operational Researchers.

0:01:380:01:41

Claire, you lost your first game to the Cluesmiths,

0:01:410:01:43

then you beat the Polyglots.

0:01:430:01:45

How did you celebrate victory?

0:01:450:01:46

Well, first of all, we had a lovely

0:01:460:01:48

team trip to Cardiff Castle

0:01:480:01:50

and then we went to the pub.

0:01:500:01:51

I think that shows a broad range of interests.

0:01:510:01:54

Our teams always goes to the pubs in the evenings,

0:01:540:01:56

but usually on a quiz hunt. So, well done.

0:01:560:01:59

Let's press on with Round One.

0:01:590:02:01

What is the connection between four apparently random clues?

0:02:010:02:03

Both of these teams have won and lost a game,

0:02:030:02:06

which means the winners tonight are through to the quarterfinals,

0:02:060:02:08

but the loser is going home.

0:02:080:02:10

Operational Researchers, you won

0:02:100:02:12

the toss, you are going first.

0:02:120:02:13

Which hieroglyph would you like?

0:02:130:02:15

Can we have the Lion, please?

0:02:150:02:16

Absolutely.

0:02:160:02:17

What is the connection between these clues?

0:02:170:02:19

Here's the first.

0:02:190:02:20

THEY WHISPER

0:02:240:02:26

Next, please.

0:02:260:02:27

Stars Hollow.

0:02:280:02:29

Stars Hollow is the town

0:02:320:02:33

-from the Gilmore Girls.

-OK.

0:02:330:02:35

So, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore

0:02:350:02:37

have something to do with it?

0:02:370:02:38

I've never heard of it.

0:02:380:02:40

I guess we better go... Next, please.

0:02:400:02:42

Captain James Onedin. Onedin Line?

0:02:430:02:46

Next, please.

0:02:520:02:53

-Gilmore.

-Yeah.

0:02:540:02:56

It's Gilmore.

0:02:570:02:59

That is the right answer.

0:02:590:03:00

What can you tell me about the clues?

0:03:000:03:02

Well, Happy Sandler is Happy Gilmore,

0:03:020:03:04

the Adam Sandler film.

0:03:040:03:05

And Stars Hollow is the town in the Gilmore Girls.

0:03:050:03:08

-But I don't know the other two.

-Do you know

0:03:080:03:10

Captain James Onedin over there?

0:03:100:03:11

He was played by Peter Gilmore in The Onedin Line.

0:03:110:03:13

That's absolutely right.

0:03:130:03:15

And the first one, sports - "hernia",

0:03:150:03:17

that is Gilmore's groin,

0:03:170:03:19

which is something that surgeons

0:03:190:03:21

debate, is it a true hernia?

0:03:210:03:23

That is my kind of debate.

0:03:230:03:24

That is the kind of thing I want to see in Parliament.

0:03:240:03:26

For the hernia, anti the hernia.

0:03:260:03:28

But, yes, Gilmore's groin is what I was hoping to see,

0:03:280:03:31

metaphorically speaking.

0:03:310:03:34

Well done, you get one point.

0:03:340:03:36

Spaghetti Westerners,

0:03:360:03:37

it is your turn to choose.

0:03:370:03:38

-Eye of Horus, please.

-The Eye of Horus.

0:03:380:03:40

What is the connection between these picture clues? Here's the first.

0:03:400:03:44

That's FDR. And it's...

0:03:460:03:49

-It was played...

-OK.

0:03:490:03:52

Keep thinking on that. Next.

0:03:520:03:54

That is Peter Cushing as Dr Frankenstein, presumably.

0:03:560:04:01

Next.

0:04:020:04:03

That's Olivier and that's Hamlet.

0:04:050:04:07

Oscar winners perhaps?

0:04:070:04:08

-No, it didn't win.

-Oscar films...

-Olivier, Cushing...

0:04:080:04:11

I can't remember who played FDR.

0:04:130:04:16

Next.

0:04:160:04:17

Oh, gosh, I don't recognise him.

0:04:190:04:21

Three seconds.

0:04:210:04:22

BELL

0:04:220:04:24

-Do you have an answer?

-Grave robbers.

0:04:280:04:30

LAUGHING: No.

0:04:300:04:32

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:04:320:04:33

Operational Researchers, do you want to have a go for a bonus point?

0:04:330:04:36

Famous Lawrences.

0:04:360:04:38

No. You're looking

0:04:380:04:40

at Laurence Olivier

0:04:400:04:41

playing Hamlet there.

0:04:410:04:42

This is a really tough one. OK,

0:04:420:04:43

we are looking at

0:04:430:04:45

Franklin D Roosevelt,

0:04:450:04:47

Baron Victor Frankenstein,

0:04:470:04:49

Hamlet and Kurt Wallander,

0:04:490:04:51

played by Krister Henriksson.

0:04:510:04:53

These are all roles that have also been played by someone else.

0:04:530:04:56

Kenneth Branagh.

0:04:560:04:57

Kenneth Branagh played FDR

0:04:570:04:59

in the HBO series Warm Springs.

0:04:590:05:01

He played Frankenstein in the film Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

0:05:010:05:05

Subtitle - "Oh, that Frankenstein."

0:05:050:05:07

Hamlet, of course, he played.

0:05:070:05:08

And Wallander in the remake in

0:05:080:05:10

English roles of Kenneth Branagh.

0:05:100:05:12

So you don't get the bonus,

0:05:120:05:14

Researchers, but you do get your own question. Which is it to be?

0:05:140:05:17

-We will have the Horned Viper, please.

-The Horned Viper.

0:05:170:05:20

The music question!

0:05:200:05:21

There we are. Lovely. Everyone's favourite.

0:05:210:05:23

What is the connection between these clues? Here's the first.

0:05:230:05:26

# Doctors tell me that I'm cynical. #

0:05:260:05:29

Tsunami, by the Manics. Tsunami.

0:05:290:05:31

Next, please.

0:05:320:05:34

# We'll meet you

0:05:340:05:35

# Where the lights are. #

0:05:350:05:38

-That's Take That, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:05:380:05:40

# Of the faith we are

0:05:400:05:42

# Where the thunder turns around

0:05:420:05:45

# They'll run so hard

0:05:450:05:46

-# We'll tear the ground... #

-Next.

0:05:460:05:48

# The man the authorities came to blame

0:05:480:05:50

# For something that he never done

0:05:500:05:53

# Put him in a prison cell but one time he could-a been... #

0:05:540:05:57

Go on, then. Next.

0:05:570:05:59

'60s MOTOWN MUSIC

0:05:590:06:03

Three seconds.

0:06:030:06:04

-BELL

-The weather?

0:06:040:06:06

I'll take it, yes. Horrible weather.

0:06:070:06:09

I mean, it's not just weather,

0:06:090:06:10

we heard Tsunami

0:06:100:06:12

by the Manic Street Preachers. What else did you recognise?

0:06:120:06:15

That was the one we recognised.

0:06:150:06:17

It was Take That, wasn't it?

0:06:170:06:18

Take That, The Flood.

0:06:180:06:20

Bob Dylan, Hurricane. And then Heat Wave, Martha Reeves.

0:06:200:06:22

I suppose a heat wave isn't that

0:06:220:06:24

horrible. Maybe that is good weather.

0:06:240:06:25

It depends on your point of view.

0:06:250:06:27

But extreme weather, anyway.

0:06:270:06:28

Or perhaps occasionally disastrous.

0:06:280:06:30

Well done, a point to you there.

0:06:300:06:31

And back to the Westerners

0:06:310:06:33

-for a choice.

-Twisted Flax, please.

-Twisted Flax.

0:06:330:06:35

What is the connection between these clues? Here's the first.

0:06:350:06:38

Mouse.

0:06:400:06:41

Two thirds of a metre.

0:06:410:06:42

Next.

0:06:420:06:44

Cat, two metres.

0:06:460:06:47

It...

0:06:510:06:53

Is it just the length of the largest that has been recorded?

0:06:540:06:58

-Possibly.

-Possibly. Next.

0:06:580:07:00

-Chimpanzee...

-Eight metres. That can't be.

0:07:020:07:05

How far they can jump or something like that?

0:07:050:07:08

Oh, it's their gestation periods,

0:07:080:07:09

-I would think.

-Yes. You're right.

0:07:090:07:11

These are the gestation periods in months of those animals.

0:07:130:07:16

They are gestation periods.

0:07:160:07:18

You didn't need to see the last one,

0:07:180:07:20

human - nine months.

0:07:200:07:21

Of course, sometimes by the magic

0:07:210:07:22

of television, a person could be

0:07:220:07:24

in their third trimester for the best part of seven months.

0:07:240:07:26

On and on, week after week after week.

0:07:260:07:29

But nine months is when

0:07:290:07:31

it is all supposed to stop.

0:07:310:07:32

Last choice of the round for you,

0:07:320:07:34

Researchers. Which one is it?

0:07:340:07:35

-Water, please.

-Water.

0:07:350:07:37

What is the connection between these clues? Here's the first.

0:07:370:07:41

It could be the date they're formed. Next, please.

0:07:450:07:48

-Good God, I don't know.

-I don't know.

0:07:480:07:51

It's the end of the war.

0:07:520:07:54

Is it black? Like Black Monday?

0:07:540:07:58

I don't know. Next, please.

0:07:580:08:00

He is like a sort of blues singer.

0:08:030:08:06

Yeah.

0:08:060:08:07

HE WHISPERS

0:08:090:08:12

Next, please.

0:08:120:08:13

Oh, he nearly dies in a plane crash.

0:08:150:08:18

Three seconds.

0:08:180:08:19

Is it people that nearly died in a plane crash?

0:08:190:08:23

But didn't get on the plane?

0:08:230:08:24

I can't accept it, I'm afraid.

0:08:240:08:26

Spaghetti Westerners, you want

0:08:260:08:27

to have a go for a bonus point?

0:08:270:08:28

People who nearly died in a car accident on those dates.

0:08:280:08:32

That is not it either.

0:08:320:08:33

No, I mean, the second one isn't a person at all.

0:08:330:08:36

It is about narrow escapes.

0:08:360:08:38

Waylon Jennings gave up his seat

0:08:380:08:39

on the plane where Buddy Holly died.

0:08:390:08:41

And Seth MacFarlane was supposed

0:08:410:08:43

to take one of the flights

0:08:430:08:44

that hit the North Tower,

0:08:440:08:46

but he was late.

0:08:460:08:47

But the first two - JP Morgan,

0:08:470:08:48

the founder of the bank,

0:08:480:08:49

he relinquished his ticket for the Titanic.

0:08:490:08:51

And Kokura, that was the primary

0:08:510:08:54

target for the Nagasaki bomb,

0:08:540:08:56

but it was clouded over on the day.

0:08:560:08:58

So, narrow escapes from disaster

0:08:580:09:00

for all these clues.

0:09:000:09:02

No bonus points then. The last question of the round,

0:09:020:09:04

Two Reeds, that is for you, Westerners.

0:09:040:09:06

Can you tell me the connection? Here's your first clue.

0:09:060:09:09

El Chicharito. Football?

0:09:100:09:12

Oh, El Chicharito, he's...

0:09:120:09:14

He used to play for Manchester United.

0:09:140:09:17

He plays for Real Madrid now.

0:09:170:09:19

So just go on.

0:09:190:09:21

-It might be in the right area, but just go on.

-Next.

0:09:210:09:24

-Do we know his first name? CP...

-EP.

-EP Thompson.

0:09:240:09:28

It's EPT. EP Thompson. Is there an EPT football team?

0:09:290:09:33

Um...

0:09:330:09:34

-THEY WHISPER

-Next.

0:09:340:09:37

Also with... LP Hartley. So these are all people with initials.

0:09:380:09:43

-EP. Next.

-Three seconds.

0:09:430:09:46

No, that is it, the time is up. Just too late.

0:09:490:09:52

So a bonus chance for you,

0:09:520:09:53

-Researchers.

-Beyonce.

0:09:530:09:55

Yeah, no. Although Beyonce is related to the last clue, of course.

0:09:550:09:59

Yeah, probably not the author of

0:09:590:10:00

The Making Of The English Working Class, though.

0:10:000:10:02

No, I think she may be working on

0:10:020:10:04

that volume but yet to be published.

0:10:040:10:06

You recognised the author of

0:10:060:10:07

The Making Of The English

0:10:070:10:08

Working Class - EP Thompson.

0:10:080:10:10

The author of The Go-Between - LP Hartley.

0:10:100:10:12

Don't spot something?

0:10:120:10:14

What if I tell you that El Chicharito's first team,

0:10:140:10:17

the Mexican footballer -

0:10:170:10:18

CD Guadalajara.

0:10:180:10:20

And put a ring on it begins - Single Ladies Put A Ring On It.

0:10:200:10:23

So...

0:10:230:10:24

We are looking at music formats -

0:10:240:10:26

CD, EP, LP, single.

0:10:260:10:28

Music formats

0:10:280:10:30

at the beginning of those.

0:10:300:10:32

At the end of Round One...

0:10:320:10:33

Neck and neck into Round Two, the sequences round.

0:10:410:10:43

What comes fourth in a sequence?

0:10:430:10:45

Researchers, you'll get go first again.

0:10:450:10:48

Which hieroglyph would you like?

0:10:480:10:49

-Can we have the Eye of Horus, please?

-Yes, you can.

0:10:490:10:52

You are going to see... MUSIC CHIMES

0:10:520:10:53

Well! I say see... You're going

0:10:530:10:55

to hear the first in a sequence.

0:10:550:10:58

A lovely musical sequence. I want to know what would come fourth.

0:10:580:11:02

Your first clue is coming in now.

0:11:020:11:04

# Mull of Kintyre... #

0:11:040:11:07

Mull of Kintyre. Wait.

0:11:070:11:08

Next.

0:11:080:11:09

# Mama... #

0:11:090:11:11

Bohemian Rhapsody.

0:11:110:11:12

# Just killed a man Put a gun against his head. #

0:11:120:11:16

I think they're the best selling songs.

0:11:160:11:18

I think they're the best selling songs of all-time.

0:11:180:11:20

# Pulled the trigger, now he's dead.

0:11:200:11:22

# Mama... #

0:11:220:11:24

-Do you want to go next?

-No, I think it must be Candle In The Wind, '97.

0:11:240:11:29

Do you think so?

0:11:290:11:31

Do want to get the next one?

0:11:310:11:33

-Yeah.

-Next.

0:11:330:11:34

# Here's to you

0:11:340:11:36

-# Raise a glass for everyone... #

-Yeah.

-Go for it.

0:11:360:11:38

Elton John, Candle In The Wind?

0:11:400:11:42

-Candle In The Wind.

-'97.

-1997.

0:11:420:11:45

Is the right answer. Why is that?

0:11:450:11:48

I think... Are they the best selling British songs,

0:11:480:11:51

or UK selling songs of all-time?

0:11:510:11:53

At time of recording, they are the best selling singles.

0:11:530:11:57

Then Candle In The Wind, which we don't get to hear

0:12:010:12:03

cos it is last in the sequence,

0:12:030:12:04

but I think we could have a blast

0:12:040:12:06

in the studio, couldn't we?

0:12:060:12:07

Let's go from "And it seems to me".

0:12:070:12:09

One, two, three, four...

0:12:090:12:11

-ALL:

-# And it seems to me

0:12:110:12:12

# You lived your life like a candle in the wind... #

0:12:120:12:17

Beautiful. I could hear that

0:12:170:12:19

all night. Very well done.

0:12:190:12:21

I wish I could give bonus points

0:12:210:12:22

for the harmonies over there.

0:12:220:12:24

But the points go only to you

0:12:240:12:26

for spotting it, so well done. Westerners,

0:12:260:12:27

you may choose a question.

0:12:270:12:29

-We'll have the Viper, please.

-Why not? The Viper.

0:12:290:12:31

What will come fourth in this sequence?

0:12:310:12:33

Here's the first.

0:12:330:12:35

Eastern cut-off, I think it is...

0:12:360:12:38

-A canal of some sort.

-A canal, yeah.

0:12:380:12:40

This is the Panama Canal, isn't it?

0:12:400:12:43

Or the Suez Canal.

0:12:430:12:45

Next.

0:12:450:12:46

No, that's...

0:12:480:12:49

-The high jumping?

-No. Oh, yes, it could be.

0:12:510:12:53

-In which case it would be...

-Flop cos...

0:12:530:12:56

Let's go next.

0:12:560:12:57

-It was western... Yeah, OK.

-Next.

0:12:570:12:59

Straddle, yeah.

0:13:010:13:02

Possibly flop.

0:13:030:13:05

Goodness me! That is the right

0:13:050:13:07

answer. How have you got...? Can you explain

0:13:070:13:09

what this sequence is?

0:13:090:13:10

I think they are the high-jump techniques in order

0:13:100:13:12

in which they won Olympic gold medals, probably.

0:13:120:13:15

It is the order that they broke

0:13:150:13:17

the men's world record

0:13:170:13:19

in the high jump. I thought this was too much lateral thinking.

0:13:190:13:21

The sequence is -

0:13:210:13:23

successive breakages of the

0:13:230:13:24

men's world record in the high jump.

0:13:240:13:26

But then it is the methods

0:13:260:13:28

by which they did it.

0:13:280:13:29

Goodness me!

0:13:290:13:31

Back to you, Researchers,

0:13:310:13:32

for a question.

0:13:320:13:33

-We will take the Lion, please.

-Why not? The Lion.

0:13:330:13:35

What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:13:350:13:37

They are picture clues.

0:13:370:13:38

So what would you expect to see in the fourth picture? Here's the first.

0:13:380:13:42

Next.

0:13:420:13:43

Marmite...

0:13:440:13:46

Vitamin C and D.

0:13:480:13:50

C, B...

0:13:520:13:54

Is it like milk, calcium?

0:13:550:13:57

It's D, isn't it?

0:13:580:14:00

Do want to go for it or do you want to get the next one?

0:14:000:14:03

No, it's not calcium.

0:14:030:14:05

-What's got some D in?

-Fish.

0:14:050:14:07

-OK.

-Shall we go for it?

-Yep.

0:14:070:14:10

We think it is fish or something with lots of vitamin D in.

0:14:100:14:13

We went with lovely sunlight.

0:14:130:14:16

What are we looking at?

0:14:160:14:17

Carrots, which have got

0:14:170:14:19

lots of vitamin A in.

0:14:190:14:20

Marmite, lots of vitamin B.

0:14:200:14:22

12 is it or something?

0:14:220:14:24

And then citrus fruits with lots of vitamin C in.

0:14:240:14:27

That's exactly right.

0:14:270:14:28

Vitamins A, B, C are the first clues.

0:14:280:14:30

And I want to know what contains vitamin D.

0:14:300:14:32

Sunlight, liver, fish oil, eggs...

0:14:320:14:34

Oh, it sounds delicious!

0:14:340:14:36

Well done. For those points. And,

0:14:360:14:38

Westerners, back to you for a choice.

0:14:380:14:40

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds. What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:14:400:14:43

Here's the first.

0:14:430:14:44

-Rawlinson.

-OK, so...

0:14:460:14:48

Next.

0:14:500:14:51

THEY WHISPER

0:14:540:14:58

Better have next.

0:14:580:15:00

Smith-Dorrien.

0:15:010:15:02

No. Smith-Dorrien, some sort of...

0:15:020:15:06

It's either the real name of a detective...

0:15:070:15:10

No, that is Nayland Smith I'm thinking of. Smith-Dorrien.

0:15:100:15:13

He is someone...

0:15:130:15:14

Smith-Dorrien... Um...

0:15:160:15:18

Er...

0:15:180:15:19

I'm just going to have a wild guess here. First Fisher.

0:15:210:15:24

Not the right answer. Let me go over

0:15:240:15:26

to the Operational Researchers

0:15:260:15:28

-to see if you know.

-First Hughes.

0:15:280:15:30

Not it. Why are you saying Fisher?

0:15:300:15:32

I just had a vague idea they might

0:15:320:15:34

be late-19th-century admirals

0:15:340:15:36

or something like that.

0:15:360:15:38

They are military figures,

0:15:380:15:39

generals, really. They are commanders

0:15:390:15:41

of Kitchener's armies.

0:15:410:15:42

And it is first - Haig.

0:15:420:15:43

-Oh.

-Armies going backwards.

0:15:430:15:45

K4, K3, K2, K1.

0:15:450:15:48

In World War I, Kitchener's armies.

0:15:480:15:50

And the commander of the first one -

0:15:500:15:51

Haig. No bonus points then,

0:15:510:15:53

but you do get a choice.

0:15:530:15:54

Which one would you like?

0:15:540:15:55

-Water, please.

-Water.

0:15:550:15:57

What would be fourth in this sequence?

0:15:570:15:59

Here's the first.

0:15:590:16:00

SHE WHISPERS

0:16:040:16:06

Next.

0:16:060:16:07

-Yes. So it would be...

-So it would be nitrogen.

0:16:110:16:14

Filled in with...

0:16:140:16:16

What's the colours?

0:16:160:16:18

Red for... Carbon is not

0:16:180:16:19

in the atmosphere, though. I think we need another one.

0:16:190:16:22

Next, please.

0:16:220:16:24

Helium.

0:16:250:16:26

What would it be?

0:16:300:16:32

I guess filled in...

0:16:320:16:34

Yeah.

0:16:350:16:37

An N filled completely round in green?

0:16:370:16:41

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:16:410:16:43

So another bonus chance

0:16:430:16:44

for you, Westerners.

0:16:440:16:45

It would be an H filled completely round.

0:16:450:16:48

That is the right answer.

0:16:480:16:49

Can you explain why?

0:16:490:16:50

It's the proportions of these elements, we think, in the sun.

0:16:500:16:54

Well, it is the universe in general.

0:16:540:16:55

It is the make-up of the universe.

0:16:550:16:57

We have got carbon, then oxygen,

0:16:570:16:59

then helium. And I think if everything else was nitrogen,

0:16:590:17:02

we'd be in a bit of trouble.

0:17:020:17:03

So it is actually hydrogen, represented by an H.

0:17:030:17:05

So you get a bonus point and you get

0:17:050:17:07

the last question, the Twisted Flax.

0:17:070:17:09

What would be fourth in this sequence? Here is the first.

0:17:090:17:11

One is Common Era. So where are they going with that?

0:17:130:17:17

-Maybe it is to do with...

-Next.

0:17:180:17:20

Two, scarlet woman.

0:17:220:17:23

-Scarlet woman.

-Are they tarot cards or something like that?

0:17:260:17:29

CE and... Scarlet woman doesn't have initials.

0:17:290:17:32

Um...

0:17:330:17:35

Is the scarlet woman a book?

0:17:350:17:38

Next.

0:17:380:17:39

-Something with tarot cards.

-I don't know whether they are cards.

0:17:440:17:48

Three seconds.

0:17:480:17:50

BELL

0:17:500:17:52

HE EXHALES HEAVILY

0:17:520:17:55

Four, colon, death.

0:17:550:17:59

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:17:590:18:01

It is so often the end of a sequence.

0:18:010:18:02

Death. But not on this occasion.

0:18:020:18:04

So Operational Researchers, do you want to have a go?

0:18:040:18:06

Four, colon, resurrection?

0:18:060:18:09

LAUGHING: No. Although...lovely!

0:18:090:18:11

I mean, skip right over death

0:18:110:18:13

and into resurrection.

0:18:130:18:14

No, you have missed it completely. This is a word one.

0:18:140:18:16

Now, what is mean about this is...

0:18:160:18:18

We have played the old crossword compiler's trick

0:18:180:18:22

of breaking and going

0:18:220:18:23

on to the next line.

0:18:230:18:24

But if you look in the middle

0:18:240:18:26

of the two words, you will see 'one' in the middle of common era.

0:18:260:18:30

Do you see that? Two.

0:18:300:18:32

If you take the T from the end of scarlet and W-O, you get two.

0:18:320:18:34

Death re-enacted, you get three.

0:18:340:18:36

So something with four, for example - handcuff ourselves.

0:18:360:18:38

We should've looked at that.

0:18:380:18:40

We wanted something with the number

0:18:400:18:41

four hidden in the middle.

0:18:410:18:43

At the end of Round Two, then...

0:18:430:18:44

Time to get the teams up against a wall, a Connecting Wall.

0:18:520:18:55

You'll be going first this time, Spaghetti Westerners.

0:18:550:18:58

Would you like Lion or Water?

0:18:580:18:59

We'll have the Lion, please.

0:18:590:19:01

OK. You have 2.5 minutes to sort out this wall.

0:19:010:19:04

Starting...now.

0:19:040:19:06

THEY READ THE BOARD IN WHISPERS

0:19:060:19:10

Bennet.

0:19:100:19:12

Bennet, character.

0:19:120:19:13

March is a character.

0:19:130:19:15

Sisters in novels.

0:19:150:19:16

March, Bennet, sisters in novels.

0:19:160:19:18

-May sisters?

-Possibly.

0:19:180:19:21

Keel, possibly.

0:19:210:19:23

Let's just try that on the off chance.

0:19:230:19:25

-BUZZ

-Upside down, is that a cake?

0:19:250:19:28

The Love, can't think of

0:19:280:19:29

anything for that. Kissing.

0:19:290:19:31

Is that a song, The Love?

0:19:310:19:32

Robbie Williams' song, isn't it?

0:19:320:19:34

Is it a song by somebody?

0:19:340:19:36

The Love, celebration.

0:19:360:19:38

Upside Down is a song, isn't it?

0:19:380:19:39

Millennium is a song.

0:19:390:19:41

Try those four, it might be.

0:19:430:19:45

-BUZZ

-No, OK, so... Lake. May.

0:19:450:19:48

Veronica Lake was an actress.

0:19:480:19:50

Howard Keel was in musicals.

0:19:500:19:52

-June.

-Bennett. Chase.

0:19:530:19:56

Are the Chase sisters in something?

0:19:560:19:58

-Let's try that.

-OK.

0:19:580:20:00

-BUZZ

-Oh, September is a song by

0:20:000:20:03

Kool & The Gang. Or Earth, Wind and Fire.

0:20:030:20:05

So is Celebration...

0:20:050:20:07

So I assume it is upside down.

0:20:070:20:10

The Love and kissing sound alike, don't they?

0:20:100:20:13

Try The Love and upside down.

0:20:130:20:14

-Buzz

-OK, try those again with that.

0:20:140:20:17

-BUZZ

-Try them again with that.

0:20:170:20:19

-BUZZ

-I tell you what,

0:20:190:20:21

-I'm going to try these.

-Yep.

0:20:210:20:23

We have got a minute left.

0:20:230:20:25

-BUZZ

-Shame. Something with shame.

0:20:250:20:30

September, celebration, millennium...

0:20:300:20:34

THEY TALK OVER EACH OTHER, BUZZ

0:20:370:20:39

I think the sisters is one.

0:20:400:20:42

I think Bennet and March are good. The sisters have got to be.

0:20:420:20:45

You have 30 seconds.

0:20:450:20:46

I'm going to try that.

0:20:480:20:49

-What about months? I know it is a bit...

-Well, March.

0:20:490:20:52

They are fuels, possibly.

0:20:520:20:54

September.

0:20:540:20:55

-BUZZ

-Nope.

-Fossil fuels. No. No.

0:20:550:21:00

There has got to be word thing in there.

0:21:000:21:02

-Eel.

-Eel.

0:21:020:21:04

Ten seconds.

0:21:040:21:06

-March. Hip.

-Hip.

-Part of the body.

0:21:060:21:09

No. I'm afraid you are out of time.

0:21:140:21:16

Defeated by the Wall.

0:21:160:21:18

Don't worry, because you can still get points for the connections.

0:21:180:21:21

So let's see how the groups should have looked.

0:21:210:21:24

There we are. That is the resolved wall.

0:21:240:21:26

What about the connecting points? The first blue group.

0:21:260:21:29

Sisters?

0:21:320:21:34

Well, we can't do better than literary sisters.

0:21:340:21:36

You can't do better. That is the correct answer.

0:21:360:21:38

It is as good as you can do.

0:21:380:21:39

The Bennets, from Pride And Prejudice.

0:21:390:21:41

Fossil, that is from Ballet Shoes.

0:21:410:21:43

And the green group.

0:21:430:21:45

They are songs.

0:21:480:21:50

-By...

-Disco.

0:21:500:21:52

They are disco tracks, that is absolutely right.

0:21:520:21:55

The purple group.

0:21:550:21:56

There are bugs.

0:21:590:22:00

They are bugs.

0:22:000:22:01

And the last group.

0:22:010:22:02

Are there fish hidden in there somehow?

0:22:060:22:08

No. You are right to spot that it is

0:22:080:22:10

a word one, but this is really horrible.

0:22:100:22:12

They are anagrams of vegetables.

0:22:120:22:15

Pak choi, kale, leek and yam.

0:22:150:22:19

Vegetable anagrams.

0:22:190:22:21

So that is no points, unfortunately, for the groups,

0:22:210:22:24

but three points for the connections.

0:22:240:22:26

That is a total of - give me a second - it's three.

0:22:260:22:29

Time to bring in the Operational Researchers,

0:22:290:22:31

give them a Connecting Wall, and see how they can do.

0:22:310:22:34

You will be getting the Water wall, the Lion was taken. 2.5 minutes,

0:22:340:22:37

of course. Starting now.

0:22:370:22:40

OK, uh... Well, there is...

0:22:400:22:43

-So it's pi...

-Sugar Sugar, Louie Louie, Monday Monday,

0:22:430:22:46

-and Doctor! Doctor! are all double-word songs.

-OK. Um...

0:22:460:22:49

One red paperclip?

0:22:490:22:50

There was one red paperclip and then he kept swapping it for things.

0:22:500:22:56

Maybe not.

0:22:560:22:57

-No, no.

-Alex from Target is a...

0:22:570:23:00

He is a meme, isn't he? Type thing.

0:23:000:23:02

He's like a YouTube thing.

0:23:050:23:08

And so was Friday.

0:23:080:23:10

So maybe one red and that is? Yeah. OK.

0:23:100:23:12

Three strikes and you're out now.

0:23:120:23:14

-Still plenty of time.

-So, pi...

0:23:140:23:16

-See.

-The letter.

-City. Pi...

0:23:160:23:19

Moose.

0:23:190:23:22

Taught.

0:23:220:23:23

-Taught meaning tight.

-Yeah.

0:23:250:23:28

-Saturday, Sunday.

-These aren't...

0:23:280:23:30

Saturday, Sunday.

0:23:300:23:31

-OK, let's...

-Blue... Easter Sunday.

0:23:330:23:36

-Easter Island.

-Easter Saturday.

0:23:360:23:39

-Easter city.

-Holy city.

0:23:390:23:41

-Oh.

-Holy city. Holy Sunday.

0:23:410:23:43

-Holy Island.

-OK, so holy.

0:23:430:23:45

There is Holy Sunday, I think?

0:23:450:23:47

-Holy city.

-And holy see.

0:23:470:23:49

-So what are the other ones?

-So, pi...

0:23:490:23:52

Saturday, Moose and taught.

0:23:520:23:53

Moose. Saturday.

0:23:530:23:56

That has got tau, bits of tau.

0:23:580:24:00

-No.

-See. Um...

0:24:000:24:02

Sat... It's like Satur... No.

0:24:040:24:07

-Um...

-Moose. Um...

0:24:070:24:09

You have got a minute left.

0:24:090:24:10

I mean, if you change a word in, that is mouse.

0:24:100:24:13

Holy pi is a thing, is it? No?

0:24:140:24:17

Haven't heard of it.

0:24:170:24:18

Leave a little bit of time too. Taught.

0:24:180:24:21

Taught is another word, isn't it?

0:24:210:24:23

Taught, yeah. Saturday...

0:24:230:24:25

-I think we should try the holy, should we?

-Yeah.

0:24:250:24:28

-Cos if it's not right...

-30 seconds.

0:24:280:24:30

-BUZZ

-No, it's not right, OK.

0:24:300:24:31

-Two goes left.

-So...

0:24:310:24:33

-Holy city.

-Try those.

-Forbidden city, forbidden island.

0:24:330:24:38

-No?

-Forbidden Sunday?

0:24:380:24:40

Definitely try the holies again.

0:24:420:24:44

-Oh!

-One go left.

-Sunday girl, island girl...

0:24:460:24:49

City girl?

0:24:490:24:52

BUZZ No, that is your third go,

0:24:520:24:54

and the wall has frozen.

0:24:540:24:55

But you found two groups

0:24:550:24:56

and I'll give you points for the connections as well.

0:24:560:24:59

What about blue group starting "Doctor!"?

0:24:590:25:01

If... They are songs

0:25:010:25:04

that have that word twice.

0:25:040:25:06

If you repeat the word, you get songs. Doctor! Doctor!,

0:25:060:25:09

Monday Monday, Sugar Sugar, and Louie Louie.

0:25:090:25:11

And the green group, starting Shreds.

0:25:110:25:14

Are they like memes? Like maybe YouTube sensation type things?

0:25:140:25:17

They are Internet memes, that is right. That is viral trends online.

0:25:170:25:20

And you can still get points

0:25:200:25:21

for the connections in the groups you didn't find,

0:25:210:25:24

so let's resolve the wall.

0:25:240:25:25

That is how it should have looked.

0:25:250:25:26

So now, the pink or purple group starting Sunday, what is that?

0:25:260:25:30

Um...

0:25:300:25:33

No, sorry.

0:25:330:25:34

You were looking for a word connection. There is one.

0:25:340:25:37

SHE READS THE BOARD

0:25:370:25:40

They all sound like desserts.

0:25:400:25:42

-Delicious desserts.

-Oooh!

0:25:420:25:43

An ice cream sundae, a chocolate mousse...

0:25:430:25:45

And the last group.

0:25:450:25:46

-Holy?

-That is the holy one.

0:25:490:25:50

You weren't putting Holy Saturday.

0:25:500:25:52

It is just the day before Easter Sunday.

0:25:520:25:54

So holy before all of them. It is two points for the groups

0:25:540:25:57

you found, three more for the connections. That is a total of five.

0:25:570:26:00

Let's have a look at the scores.

0:26:000:26:02

Onto the missing vowels round, where we have taken the vowels

0:26:090:26:11

out of well-known names, phrases and sayings,

0:26:110:26:13

re-spaced the consonants.

0:26:130:26:14

Teams, I want to know

0:26:140:26:16

what are those disguised clues.

0:26:160:26:18

Fingers on buzzers, then.

0:26:180:26:19

The first group are all...

0:26:190:26:21

0:26:460:26:48

0:26:480:26:50

That's right. Next category...

0:26:500:26:51

Westerners.

0:26:560:26:58

Too long, I'm afraid,

0:26:580:26:59

you must lose a point.

0:26:590:27:01

Researchers, do you know?

0:27:010:27:02

-Euro and lira.

-That's right.

0:27:020:27:04

-Westerners.

-Rand and pound.

-Correct.

0:27:080:27:11

Don't know this one?

0:27:180:27:19

It is new Taiwan dollar and old Taiwan dollar.

0:27:190:27:22

Next clue.

0:27:220:27:23

-Couldn't get that one. It was the lion lady - Joy Adamson. ALL:

-Oh.

0:27:520:27:55

The bell has gone for the end

0:27:550:27:57

of the quiz. And finishing with 17 points,

0:27:570:28:00

through to the quarterfinals, it is

0:28:000:28:02

the Operational Researchers.

0:28:020:28:05

Finishing with a creditable ten and sadly going home, it is

0:28:050:28:08

the Spaghetti Westerners. Sorry to

0:28:080:28:09

lose you. It was lovely to meet you.

0:28:090:28:11

You have been a great team.

0:28:110:28:13

Someone has to go home.

0:28:130:28:14

I'm afraid it is you.

0:28:140:28:16

Please join me next time for

0:28:160:28:17

another episode of the quiz that is

0:28:170:28:19

harder to get right than Mariah Carey's brunch order.

0:28:190:28:22

It is three quarters of a cup of jasmine steam,

0:28:220:28:25

two drops of soy milk and a Greggs Steak Bake.

0:28:250:28:28

Goodbye.
