Hello and welcome to Only Connect, the grand final.

0:00:210:00:25

Every TV series ends, not every series has a grand final.

0:00:250:00:30

Gardener's World, for example, doesn't have a last climatic battle

0:00:300:00:33

with the very toughest weeds,

0:00:330:00:35

but we do.

0:00:350:00:37

This is going to be quite the stand-off.

0:00:370:00:39

Coming up later, we've got a couple of granite-hard Connecting Walls

0:00:390:00:43

to test the razor-sharp drills of our relentlessly boring teams.

0:00:430:00:47

That's boring in the sense of rock, not in the sense of...

0:00:470:00:50

You know, like a boring tool. A boring tool!

0:00:500:00:52

Anyway, let's meet the tools...the teams!

0:00:520:00:55

On my right... Tessa North -

0:00:550:00:58

a museum volunteer who spent her recent birthday in a recreated

0:00:580:01:01

Anglo-Saxon village

0:01:010:01:03

and has been in close proximity to a least five Time Lords.

0:01:030:01:07

Pete Sorel-Cameron -

0:01:070:01:08

an actor and musician who has played the part

0:01:080:01:11

of Rufus Wainwright's head, from the back.

0:01:110:01:13

And their captain - Richard Aubrey -

0:01:130:01:16

a church choir leader

0:01:160:01:17

and secondary school teacher who got stuck

0:01:170:01:19

on top of Cape Town's most famous landmark

0:01:190:01:22

and had to be retrieved by the local mountain rescue.

0:01:220:01:25

United by an appetite for the orchestral,

0:01:250:01:27

they are the String Section.

0:01:270:01:28

One of the String Sections, I should perhaps say.

0:01:280:01:30

You have beaten the Headliners, the Wayfarers,

0:01:300:01:33

the Scientists and the Cluesmiths to reach the final.

0:01:330:01:36

How confident are you feeling of ultimate victory?

0:01:360:01:39

With the calibre of some of the teams you have just named,

0:01:390:01:42

we're just impressed to be here.

0:01:420:01:45

You have done incredibly well to be here. Very well done.

0:01:450:01:47

Can you get further? The people trying to stop you tonight are,

0:01:470:01:51

on my left...

0:01:510:01:53

Barbara Thompson - a retired NHS secretary

0:01:530:01:56

and fan of black-and-white cinema who hopes to one day realise her

0:01:560:02:00

ambition of seeing the lost classic Britannia of Billingsgate.

0:02:000:02:03

Matt Beatson -

0:02:030:02:05

an IT consultant who mistakenly thought

0:02:050:02:07

he had broken his arm when he was run over by a push bike in Nevada.

0:02:070:02:11

And their captain, Gerard Mackay -

0:02:110:02:13

a maths graduate who has been attacked by a goat and has on three

0:02:130:02:16

occasions unexpectedly encountered a member of the Royal Family.

0:02:160:02:20

United by a soft spot for strolling,

0:02:200:02:22

they are the Wayfarers.

0:02:220:02:24

Gerard, you beat the Bookworms.

0:02:240:02:25

Then you lost to the String Section, who are here again tonight.

0:02:250:02:28

Then you beat the Builders, beat the Bookworms again

0:02:280:02:31

and won your semifinal against the Yorkers.

0:02:310:02:33

What do you think about facing the String Section for the second time?

0:02:330:02:36

In the words of Vinnie Jones, it's been emotional.

0:02:360:02:39

And I shall be sorry to see either team lose.

0:02:390:02:42

You won the toss, so you will be going first.

0:02:420:02:44

Please choose the first Egyptian hieroglyph of the final.

0:02:440:02:49

Twisted Flax, please.

0:02:490:02:51

MUSICAL NOTE The Twisted Flax. Ah!

0:02:510:02:52

The music question.

0:02:520:02:53

What is the connection between the clues you're going to hear?

0:02:530:02:56

Here is the first.

0:02:560:02:57

# When I am laid... #

0:02:570:03:02

Do you know what that is?

0:03:020:03:04

-SHE WHISPERS

-Oh, it is, isn't it?

0:03:040:03:07

Next, please.

0:03:070:03:08

OPERATIC SINGING

0:03:080:03:10

They're all queens. It was Queen Dido...

0:03:100:03:13

Shall we say next?

0:03:130:03:15

We think they are all songs of queens.

0:03:150:03:17

There are all queens involved.

0:03:170:03:19

You are correct.

0:03:190:03:20

They are all sung by queens.

0:03:200:03:22

What did we hear?

0:03:220:03:23

-What was the first one?

-Dido's Lament.

-Dido's Lament.

0:03:230:03:25

That's it, from Purcell's Dido's And Aeneas. You didn't need

0:03:250:03:28

to hear Let It Go from Frozen.

0:03:280:03:30

-Right.

-By Elsa the Snow Queen.

0:03:300:03:32

And then we would have had something from Camelot, Queen Guinevere.

0:03:320:03:35

Very well gambled after two clues.

0:03:350:03:37

Three points to you.

0:03:370:03:38

OK, String Section,

0:03:380:03:39

what would you like?

0:03:390:03:40

-Two Reeds.

-Two Reeds. OK.

0:03:400:03:43

What is the connection between these clues?

0:03:430:03:46

Here's the first.

0:03:460:03:47

-Tiberian.

-Yeah, OK.

0:03:500:03:53

OK. Next, please.

0:03:530:03:55

-It's...

-Sorry, what's that?

0:03:590:04:02

-SHE WHISPERS

-OK, well...

0:04:020:04:05

They're all different, aren't they?

0:04:050:04:07

-Do we take one more?

-Yeah.

0:04:070:04:09

OK, we'll take next, please.

0:04:090:04:11

-Do you know that?

-Right.

0:04:140:04:16

THEY WHISPER

0:04:160:04:19

It's Liberian, so it's "erian".

0:04:200:04:22

-OK...

-Yeah.

-They all end in "erian".

0:04:230:04:26

I'm minded to give that to you.

0:04:260:04:28

I'd love to hear a little bit more.

0:04:280:04:30

Well, it's Liberian girl on Bad.

0:04:300:04:32

They end in "iberain".

0:04:320:04:34

-Sorry.

-They end in "iberian".

0:04:340:04:35

They do end on "erian",

0:04:350:04:37

I'll give it to you, but it's even more.

0:04:370:04:39

What do you think the first clue is?

0:04:390:04:40

That's Tiberian.

0:04:400:04:41

And the next one, Iberain -

0:04:410:04:43

the ancient Georgian kingdom.

0:04:430:04:44

-Liberian is the girl on Bad. And the last clue...

-Siberian.

-Siberian.

0:04:440:04:48

Very well done.

0:04:480:04:50

Back to you, Wayfarers, for a choice.

0:04:500:04:52

Could we have the Lion, please?

0:04:520:04:53

The Lion. OK, what is the connection between these clues?

0:04:530:04:57

Here's the first.

0:04:570:04:58

THEY WHISPER

0:05:000:05:06

Next, please.

0:05:060:05:07

THEY WHISPER

0:05:080:05:10

Actor, what's the name?

0:05:100:05:12

HE MUTTERS

0:05:120:05:14

Next, please.

0:05:140:05:16

THEY WHISPER

0:05:170:05:20

I don't know this one, do you?

0:05:210:05:23

Keeps dying from...

0:05:230:05:26

Yeah... Oh, it could be. Next, please.

0:05:260:05:29

Oh, they're deaths of Bond villains.

0:05:310:05:33

No, no, no. It's...

0:05:330:05:34

-Three seconds.

-Press the button!

0:05:340:05:36

-It's actually Sean Bean.

-Oh, deaths of Sean Bean.

0:05:360:05:40

They are deaths of Sean Bean

0:05:400:05:43

in various films.

0:05:430:05:44

Good save from you there, Matt. Not all Bond villains.

0:05:440:05:47

He's torn apart by horses

0:05:470:05:48

in Black Death, which is

0:05:480:05:50

a horror film set against the

0:05:500:05:52

backdrop of the 14th-century plague.

0:05:520:05:54

Skewered by a grappling hook,

0:05:540:05:56

do you know over there?

0:05:560:05:57

Patriot Games.

0:05:570:05:58

No, it's The Island, a 2005 movie

0:05:580:06:00

about an escape from dystopia.

0:06:000:06:03

Who can tell me how Sean Bean dies

0:06:030:06:05

in Don't Say A Word?

0:06:050:06:06

-Beaten to death with a shovel.

-Is he buried alive?

0:06:060:06:09

He's buried alive

0:06:090:06:10

by an excavation machine.

0:06:100:06:11

He really has been very unlucky.

0:06:110:06:13

He should be more careful. The Field?

0:06:130:06:15

Eaten by cows?

0:06:150:06:17

Driven off a cliff

0:06:170:06:18

-by stampeding cows... ALL:

-Oooh!

0:06:180:06:20

..would be the perfect answer there.

0:06:200:06:21

But, yes, all unfortunate ends

0:06:210:06:24

for Sean Bean in various roles.

0:06:240:06:25

String Section, what would you like?

0:06:250:06:27

-Let's try the Eye of Horus, please.

-The Eye of Horus.

0:06:270:06:30

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

0:06:300:06:33

THEY WHISPER

0:06:350:06:37

No. Next, please.

0:06:400:06:42

THEY WHISPER

0:06:420:06:44

What do you think?

0:06:470:06:49

I don't think it's going to be a ride.

0:06:490:06:51

-THEY WHISPER

-Next, please.

0:06:510:06:53

THEY WHISPER

0:06:570:07:01

Last one, please.

0:07:010:07:02

THEY WHISPER

0:07:050:07:08

-We do not see this at all.

-Three seconds.

0:07:080:07:10

No, that's it. The time's up.

0:07:120:07:14

Wayfarers, do you want to have a go

0:07:140:07:16

-for a bonus point?

-Panthalassa was the big sea.

0:07:160:07:18

Big sea, yeah. Paleo-Tethys.

0:07:180:07:20

They're all seas that don't exist any more now.

0:07:200:07:22

That's exactly right -

0:07:220:07:23

seas or oceans that no longer exist.

0:07:230:07:25

Can you tell me about the areas where they were?

0:07:250:07:28

Well, Panthalassa was all the seas joined together to make one

0:07:280:07:31

-big one, I take it.

-Quite.

0:07:310:07:33

And the first one... Well,

0:07:330:07:34

we just had a Siberian question,

0:07:340:07:36

so it's another one between Baltica and Siberia.

0:07:360:07:38

Slide Mountain separated

0:07:380:07:39

North America

0:07:390:07:40

from some volcanic islands.

0:07:400:07:42

Paleo-Tethys separated what's now Central Europe and China.

0:07:420:07:47

Well done. You get a bonus point.

0:07:470:07:48

Which question would you like?

0:07:480:07:50

-Water, please.

-Water.

0:07:500:07:52

These are going to be picture clues.

0:07:520:07:54

What connects them? Here's the first.

0:07:540:07:56

-Miley Cyrus, is it?

-Yeah.

-Who's the one on the right?

-Don't know.

0:07:580:08:01

Next, please.

0:08:010:08:04

Marilyn Monroe...

0:08:040:08:05

And...

0:08:050:08:08

Jen Aniston?

0:08:080:08:09

Next, please.

0:08:090:08:11

-Winston Churchill...

-Churchill, OK.

-Are they tattoos, are they?

0:08:120:08:16

-Cos he had a tattoo on his... Should we try?

-Yeah.

0:08:160:08:19

We think they're tattoos,

0:08:200:08:22

things on the right are tattooed on the people on the left.

0:08:220:08:25

You are absolutely right, they're

0:08:250:08:26

tattoos on the people on the left. You didn't need to see

0:08:260:08:29

David Dimbleby and a scorpion. THEY LAUGH

0:08:290:08:31

He's got that on him. So what are we looking at?

0:08:310:08:34

The trouble is, I know Miley Cyrus,

0:08:340:08:36

but I don't know who that is on the right of her.

0:08:360:08:38

-It's her grandma.

-Oh!

0:08:380:08:40

What more touching tribute

0:08:400:08:41

to a grandma than to have her full

0:08:410:08:43

face tattooed onto your skin(?)

0:08:430:08:45

In 2012, Megan Fox had a tattoo of

0:08:450:08:47

Marilyn Monroe removed from her arm.

0:08:470:08:49

I don't know,

0:08:490:08:50

I suppose they fell out.

0:08:500:08:51

Winston Churchill had an anchor.

0:08:510:08:53

And David Dimbleby, you didn't need to see.

0:08:530:08:55

String Section, there is

0:08:550:08:56

one question left - the Horned Viper,

0:08:560:08:58

that's for you.

0:08:580:08:59

What is the connection between these clues?

0:08:590:09:01

Here's the first.

0:09:010:09:02

THEY WHISPER

0:09:040:09:07

Next, please.

0:09:090:09:11

Hombay...

0:09:120:09:14

-Hombay...

-Bombay, Pompeii...

0:09:140:09:16

Does it rhyme with...?

0:09:160:09:18

THEY WHISPER

0:09:180:09:21

Next, please.

0:09:220:09:23

It's the ends of... So it's the ends...

0:09:250:09:28

No, egantic...

0:09:300:09:32

Next.

0:09:330:09:35

THEY WHISPER

0:09:370:09:39

-Three seconds.

-What?

0:09:390:09:42

Well, it's something that if you replace a certain...

0:09:420:09:45

I need an answer.

0:09:450:09:46

Like B-something, replacing...

0:09:460:09:48

Replacing B-R.

0:09:480:09:51

Not it, I'm afraid.

0:09:510:09:52

So a bonus chance for the Wayfarers.

0:09:520:09:54

-Any idea? A replacement would go on there, looks like.

-It's...

0:09:540:09:58

No, that's too long,

0:09:580:09:59

you don't know either.

0:09:590:10:01

You're in the right area.

0:10:010:10:02

We have fiddled about with

0:10:020:10:04

what they call portmanteaux words.

0:10:040:10:06

So you know, for example, the word smog made from smoke and fog.

0:10:060:10:10

If you broke it the other way, you'd get foke.

0:10:100:10:12

Bombay and Hollywood,

0:10:120:10:13

you make Bollywood.

0:10:130:10:14

But if you took the H and the rest

0:10:140:10:16

of the word, you get Hombay. THEY LAUGH

0:10:160:10:18

Gigantic and enormous together make ginormous.

0:10:180:10:21

Or split it differently, you get egantic.

0:10:210:10:23

And of course, breakfast and lunch make brunch.

0:10:230:10:25

But if you take the L

0:10:250:10:27

rather than the B-R, leakfast.

0:10:270:10:29

At the end of Round One...

0:10:290:10:30

Yes, the sting played

0:10:370:10:38

by a live quartet, as usual.

0:10:380:10:40

Wayfarers, you'll be going

0:10:400:10:41

first again for Round Two,

0:10:410:10:43

the sequences round.

0:10:430:10:44

Which hieroglyph would you like?

0:10:440:10:46

-Eye of Horus, please.

-The Eye of Horus.

0:10:460:10:49

These are going to be picture clues.

0:10:490:10:51

They will come in a sequence.

0:10:510:10:52

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

0:10:520:10:57

That's Marlene Dietrich.

0:10:570:11:00

Next, please.

0:11:010:11:02

-That's Joe DiMaggio.

-It's that Madonna... Vogue.

0:11:040:11:08

Dietrich and DiMaggio...

0:11:080:11:10

Marlon Brando, Fred Astaire?

0:11:100:11:12

-Shall we try Fred Astaire?

-Go for it.

0:11:120:11:14

We're going to try Fred Astaire.

0:11:140:11:16

Not the answer, I'm afraid. I'll show the third in the sequence

0:11:160:11:19

to the String Section for a possible bonus point.

0:11:190:11:21

-Jimmy Dean. James Dean.

-James Dean.

0:11:210:11:23

The answer is James Dean.

0:11:230:11:26

Yes. Now, I think you recognised it,

0:11:260:11:28

Matt, very quickly.

0:11:280:11:29

What is the sequence?

0:11:290:11:31

It is the sequence of the spoken lines that Madonna

0:11:310:11:34

says in the song Vogue.

0:11:340:11:36

That's it. "Dietrich and DiMaggio,

0:11:360:11:38

"Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean, on the cover of a magazine."

0:11:380:11:41

Well done for the bonus point.

0:11:410:11:42

Which question would you like

0:11:420:11:44

-for yourselves?

-Two Reeds once again, please.

-Two Reeds, OK.

0:11:440:11:47

What would come fourth in this sequence? Here's the first.

0:11:470:11:50

THEY WHISPER

0:11:530:11:56

Next, please.

0:11:580:11:59

Lazy...

0:12:010:12:02

Oh.

0:12:040:12:05

Scores in something or other?

0:12:050:12:08

THEY WHISPER

0:12:080:12:10

Next, please.

0:12:100:12:12

-Wow.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:12:130:12:16

Um...

0:12:160:12:17

THEY WHISPER

0:12:190:12:22

Do you have any clues AT ALL?

0:12:240:12:26

Three seconds.

0:12:260:12:27

One - old.

0:12:290:12:31

Not a sequence that I can think of,

0:12:310:12:33

I'm afraid. So, Wayfarers,

0:12:330:12:34

you have a chance for a bonus point.

0:12:340:12:36

I'd say two - the sun.

0:12:360:12:38

I mean, that's incredibly impressive.

0:12:380:12:41

The answer is two - the sun. Very well done.

0:12:410:12:43

What are we looking at?

0:12:430:12:45

Well, hidden is the derivation of krypton, which is element 36.

0:12:450:12:51

Krypton comes from the Greek kryptos,

0:12:510:12:54

meaning hidden.

0:12:540:12:55

Lazy is argos in Greek, so gives us argon, element 18.

0:12:550:12:59

New is neon, element ten.

0:12:590:13:01

And helium is from the sun, that's element number two.

0:13:010:13:04

They are all the noble gases working backwards.

0:13:040:13:07

That is what is amazing about

0:13:070:13:09

this question - so much is going on.

0:13:090:13:11

Very well done, you get the bonus point.

0:13:110:13:13

I will punish you, though,

0:13:130:13:15

by giving you a question of your own.

0:13:150:13:17

Which would you like?

0:13:170:13:18

I'm going to try Horned or Horn-ed Viper, according to taste.

0:13:180:13:21

OK, the Horned Viper. What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:13:210:13:25

Here's the first.

0:13:250:13:26

No. Next, please.

0:13:310:13:34

Next, please.

0:13:390:13:40

HE WHISPERS

0:13:450:13:47

Let's see, little words...

0:13:540:13:57

Just like abbreviations for words?

0:13:570:13:58

Not that I can think of.

0:13:580:14:00

Let's press the button.

0:14:000:14:02

Three seconds.

0:14:030:14:05

Do you want to have a guess?

0:14:070:14:09

No, I can't see this at all.

0:14:090:14:10

No point? OK, String Section,

0:14:100:14:11

do you want to have a go

0:14:110:14:13

-for a bonus point?

-EGE.

-Is the right answer!

0:14:130:14:16

Wow, you all are being very impressive this evening.

0:14:160:14:18

I thought nobody would get that.

0:14:180:14:20

-Why is it EGE?

-Anne, George I, George II.

0:14:200:14:22

George III, George IV, William IV.

0:14:220:14:23

Victoria, Edward VII, George V.

0:14:230:14:26

Edward VIII, George VI, Elizabeth II.

0:14:260:14:29

You're absolutely right.

0:14:290:14:30

They're little threesomes of

0:14:300:14:32

British monarchs going forwards,

0:14:320:14:33

and the next three would be Edward,

0:14:330:14:36

George, Elizabeth, known by EGE.

0:14:360:14:38

Very well spotted.

0:14:380:14:40

But you get your comeuppance as well

0:14:400:14:42

with your own question. Which one?

0:14:420:14:44

-The Twisted Flax, please.

-Twisted Flax.

0:14:440:14:47

What would come fourth in this sequence? Here's the first.

0:14:470:14:51

THEY WHISPER

0:14:510:14:54

Yeah, it could... Oh, yeah. Uniform? Next, please.

0:14:590:15:02

THEY WHISPER

0:15:060:15:09

Next, please.

0:15:120:15:13

You're right, it is. It's...

0:15:160:15:18

I think it could...

0:15:180:15:19

SHE WHISPERS

0:15:190:15:22

Three seconds.

0:15:260:15:29

Oooph! Hit the button.

0:15:290:15:31

1d equals...

0:15:310:15:34

-..1d.

-Is the right answer!

-Yes.

0:15:350:15:37

And why would that be?

0:15:370:15:39

It's the equivalent units on Mars, isn't it? Earth to Mars?

0:15:390:15:42

Oh, no, it's not so complicated.

0:15:420:15:45

-Do you know what it is over there?

-Well, yeah.

0:15:450:15:47

It's expressing in decimal the number of ones there are in a day.

0:15:470:15:51

That's exactly right. It's the

0:15:510:15:52

24-hour clock in decimal time.

0:15:520:15:53

In decimal time, there are

0:15:530:15:54

100 seconds in a minute,

0:15:540:15:56

100 minutes in an hour

0:15:560:15:57

and ten hours in a day.

0:15:570:15:58

So, you know, one second

0:15:580:16:00

becomes 0.864 seconds.

0:16:000:16:02

So not quite what the sequence was,

0:16:020:16:04

but you gave me the right answer, so well done.

0:16:040:16:06

Back to you, Wayfarers, for a choice.

0:16:060:16:08

-Water, please.

-Water.

0:16:080:16:10

What would come fourth in this sequence? Here's the first.

0:16:100:16:13

Fourth, fishmongers?

0:16:150:16:16

-SHE MUTTERS

-Is it...?

0:16:180:16:20

Well, we could try it. Next, please.

0:16:200:16:22

HE MUTTERS

0:16:220:16:25

-I don't know. I think Goldsmiths.

-It's a good try.

0:16:250:16:27

Should we try it now? Cos we won't know from the third, will we?

0:16:270:16:32

Trying - first, Goldsmiths.

0:16:320:16:33

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:16:330:16:35

I'll show the third in the sequence

0:16:350:16:37

-to the String Section for a possible bonus point.

-First...

0:16:370:16:40

Cordwainers.

0:16:400:16:42

Not it. The answer is -

0:16:420:16:44

first, Mercers.

0:16:440:16:45

-What's the sequence?

-It's livery companies.

0:16:450:16:49

The order they were formed, is it?

0:16:490:16:50

Well, no, it's not chronological.

0:16:500:16:52

-It's in order of precedence...

-Ah!

0:16:520:16:54

..that was set down by a group

0:16:540:16:56

of aldermen in the 16th century.

0:16:560:16:58

And they...they abide by it today.

0:16:580:17:00

In that order of precedence,

0:17:000:17:01

agreed by the livery companies

0:17:010:17:03

themselves, Mercers would be the most powerful.

0:17:030:17:06

So no points there,

0:17:060:17:08

but one more question - the Lion.

0:17:080:17:10

That'll be for you, String Section.

0:17:100:17:12

MUSICAL NOTE Well, well, it's a music sequence,

0:17:120:17:15

so I want to know what you'd expect to hear as the fourth clue.

0:17:150:17:18

Here's the first.

0:17:180:17:20

ORCHESTRAL BALLAD PLAYS

0:17:200:17:25

It's a hymn.

0:17:300:17:32

Next, please.

0:17:320:17:34

ORCHESTRAL BALLAD PLAYS

0:17:340:17:38

THEY WHISPER

0:17:380:17:41

There's No Place Like Home, do you think?

0:17:410:17:44

There's No Place Like Home. Next, please.

0:17:440:17:46

ORCHESTRAL BALLAD PLAYS

0:17:460:17:49

-HE WHISPERS

-There's no place like home.

0:17:490:17:52

See The Conquering Hero Comes

0:17:520:17:54

is the original.

0:17:540:17:55

Three seconds.

0:17:560:17:58

Sorry?

0:17:580:18:01

Forever And Ever, Amen.

0:18:010:18:02

Forever And Ever, Amen.

0:18:030:18:05

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:18:050:18:06

Wayfarers, chance of a bonus point.

0:18:060:18:08

-Rule Britannia.

-Is the right answer.

0:18:080:18:10

-And why is that?

-It's the...

0:18:100:18:12

Fantasia On Sea shanties or...

0:18:120:18:14

On British Sea Songs, by Sir Henry Wood.

0:18:140:18:17

Next would be Rule Britannia.

0:18:170:18:19

I think I would normally ask you

0:18:190:18:20

if you could sing it, but we can

0:18:200:18:22

perhaps do better than that.

0:18:220:18:23

Perhaps they can have a go. Let's hear a bit of Rule Britannia.

0:18:230:18:26

THEY PLAY Rule Britannia

0:18:260:18:30

At the end of Round Two...

0:18:420:18:44

The guest string section have two points.

0:18:460:18:48

And we move on to our final pair of Connecting Walls for the series.

0:18:530:18:57

The first one will go to you, String Section.

0:18:570:18:59

You'll be going first.

0:18:590:19:00

Which would you like, Lion or Water?

0:19:000:19:02

-Let's have the Water this time, please, Victoria.

-OK.

0:19:020:19:05

You have 2.5 minutes to solve the Water Wall, starting now.

0:19:050:19:10

OK, well...

0:19:120:19:14

THEY WHISPER

0:19:140:19:16

-We have the alphabets.

-And that would be niet, no.

0:19:160:19:19

Yes, niet, nein...

0:19:190:19:22

Maybe nej and nao.

0:19:220:19:24

OK. That was easy.

0:19:240:19:26

Alphabets...

0:19:260:19:27

-That's going to be the end of a word.

-Yes.

0:19:290:19:32

Same with...

0:19:320:19:33

-For charities would be...

-Ends of charities in general?

0:19:360:19:39

THEY WHISPER

0:19:390:19:43

-Yes. But it looks like...

-That looks like an end as well.

0:19:430:19:46

We'll do it that way.

0:19:460:19:48

-BUZZ

-That could be an end.

0:19:480:19:50

-Maybe just very quickly...

-BUZZ

0:19:500:19:52

Do you want to do...? Or do should we do that one?

0:19:520:19:54

-BUZZ

-Let's just...

-No.

0:19:540:19:56

-BUZZ

-I don't think this is going to be it.

0:19:560:19:58

No, but we'll be out of tries if you do find the right one.

0:19:580:20:01

HE WHISPERS

0:20:010:20:04

On the nose.

0:20:040:20:06

Can you have on the nine, maybe?

0:20:060:20:08

-I haven't heard of it.

-No, I don't know. On the nerve, maybe?

0:20:080:20:10

-We can get on...

-On a nerve.

0:20:100:20:12

-On the nose...

-Nettle, nines...

0:20:120:20:15

-BUZZ

-Nope.

-Yeah, maybe.

0:20:150:20:17

I don't recognise that at all.

0:20:170:20:19

-Neither do I.

-You've got a minute.

0:20:190:20:21

I'd get rid of that. I'd go nerve, nape, nose, nine and see.

0:20:210:20:24

BUZZ THEY WHISPER

0:20:240:20:27

Nipa... Is that, like, the end of something or is that...?

0:20:270:20:30

That's pain.

0:20:300:20:32

OK...

0:20:320:20:34

What could be in...?

0:20:350:20:37

Well, if it is the end of stuff, it would be that one.

0:20:380:20:40

Pain...

0:20:400:20:41

-They seem a bit vague, though, don't they?

-They do.

0:20:430:20:46

BUZZ THEY WHISPER

0:20:460:20:48

-They look like...

-20 seconds.

0:20:500:20:52

Yeah. But we'll leave it, though.

0:20:520:20:55

-Let's do this one.

-No.

0:20:550:20:58

Good grief!

0:21:000:21:01

HE SIGHS

0:21:030:21:05

-Touch. You can touch a nerve.

-Five seconds.

0:21:050:21:08

-Touch a nerve.

-No, that's it.

0:21:090:21:12

You're out of time and the Wall is frozen.

0:21:120:21:14

But you found a group, no mean feat on this Wall.

0:21:140:21:17

I'll give you a point if you can tell me the connections,

0:21:170:21:19

starting ni-et or ne-et or ni-te.

0:21:190:21:22

No, in a variety of languages.

0:21:220:21:24

No, in a range of languages, that's right.

0:21:240:21:26

And of course, you can get points for the connections in the groups

0:21:260:21:29

you didn't find, so let's resolve the Wall.

0:21:290:21:31

There you go, that's how it should've looked.

0:21:310:21:33

What about that green group?

0:21:330:21:35

-Oh!

-It's the ends of...

0:21:350:21:36

Is it...? Are they in Much Ado About Nothing?

0:21:360:21:39

But say Shakespeare.

0:21:390:21:40

Yes, cos... Ends of Shakespearean characters.

0:21:400:21:43

They are the ends of Shakespearean characters, very well done.

0:21:430:21:48

I'd love you to tell me something else if you can.

0:21:480:21:50

They all begin Leo.

0:21:500:21:51

If you put Leo at the start of all of them -

0:21:510:21:53

Leonato, Leonardo, Leontes, Leonine -

0:21:530:21:56

all end up in Shakespearean characters. Very well spotted.

0:21:560:21:58

-I didn't think you saw that at all during.

-No!

-No!

0:21:580:22:01

And what about the pink

0:22:010:22:02

or purple group?

0:22:020:22:03

You can get on someone's each of these, or touch on them.

0:22:040:22:09

I don't think you can get on someone's nape.

0:22:090:22:11

You're going to kick yourself, they're just parts of the body.

0:22:110:22:14

And the last light blue group...

0:22:140:22:16

They are...

0:22:180:22:20

Greek... Figures from Greek mythology.

0:22:200:22:22

They are not. They are plants.

0:22:220:22:24

But you did find one group and you

0:22:240:22:26

told me a couple of connections,

0:22:260:22:28

so that is three points.

0:22:280:22:29

Let's bring in the Wayfarers now, give them an equally horrible

0:22:290:22:32

final Connecting Wall and see what they can do about solving it.

0:22:320:22:36

It will be the Lion Wall for you.

0:22:360:22:38

2.5 minutes to solve it, starting now.

0:22:380:22:40

Mudra's father. Mark...

0:22:430:22:45

-That's mother.

-Mudra.

0:22:450:22:47

-Mudra.

-Moeder.

-Mere.

-No.

0:22:470:22:50

-BUZZ

-There's other mothers there as well.

0:22:500:22:53

-Matka?

-Matka, mere, mutter, mudra.

-BUZZ

0:22:530:22:56

Matka, mere, mutter and...

0:22:560:22:58

Oh, yes. Matthew, Mark...

0:22:590:23:02

Matthias?

0:23:030:23:05

-BUZZ

-No, it's doesn't work.

0:23:080:23:10

Mink, mash...

0:23:100:23:12

What's this? This looks like something upside down.

0:23:120:23:14

Cos of this dot at the end.

0:23:140:23:17

Looks as if it might be Sanskrit or something.

0:23:170:23:19

-Mamsa...

-Matsya?

0:23:190:23:22

Try it.

0:23:220:23:24

It's praying mantis...

0:23:250:23:27

-Three strikes, of course, plenty of time.

-Monster mash...

0:23:280:23:31

Molly Malone...

0:23:320:23:34

-Mink...

-Mink.

0:23:350:23:37

-Primary school mash.

-Mink is the animal.

0:23:400:23:44

-Yeah.

-Oh, and so is a martin. No, that's marten with an E, isn't it?

0:23:440:23:47

Mantis...

0:23:470:23:49

Martin and Mark,

0:23:510:23:52

we had that and it wasn't right.

0:23:520:23:54

We did Martin.

0:23:540:23:55

I can't see any mantis except praying mantis.

0:23:550:23:59

-I don't see any links to a praying mantis.

-No.

0:23:590:24:03

-Is it an anagram of anything?

-No.

0:24:030:24:04

THEY MUTTER

0:24:040:24:07

I think we're going to have to start...

0:24:090:24:11

-We've only got three guesses, haven't we?

-Yeah.

0:24:110:24:13

-Shall we go for...?

-So...

-30 seconds.

0:24:130:24:16

Ark, ink... No.

0:24:160:24:18

Ash.

0:24:180:24:19

Olly?

0:24:190:24:21

-BUZZ

-It was a long shot.

0:24:210:24:25

Antis, ink, ark, ash.

0:24:250:24:29

BUZZ

0:24:290:24:31

-Tin..

-One more go.

0:24:310:24:36

And ten seconds.

0:24:360:24:37

Nope, that's it.

0:24:390:24:42

You've had your three gos, and the Wall has frozen.

0:24:420:24:44

But you found two groups.

0:24:440:24:45

I'll give you points if you tell me the connections.

0:24:450:24:47

The first blue group, starting mutter.

0:24:470:24:50

They're all foreign words meaning mother.

0:24:500:24:52

That's right. Not mutter, of course, but Mutter.

0:24:520:24:54

The second green group. I'm not going to even try to pronounce it.

0:24:540:24:58

What's that?

0:24:580:25:00

Well, Sanskrit words for parts of states of India. Or...

0:25:000:25:04

I'm afraid they're not.

0:25:040:25:05

They are Sanskrit words, but they are for tantric rituals.

0:25:050:25:08

But I will give you points for

0:25:080:25:10

the connections in the groups

0:25:100:25:11

you didn't find, so let's resolve the Wall.

0:25:110:25:14

There you go.

0:25:140:25:15

Coats.

0:25:170:25:18

-Nope.

-Fur coats.

-Nope, that's not it. You're going to kick yourselves.

0:25:190:25:23

They're just animals.

0:25:230:25:25

And the light blue group.

0:25:250:25:26

-Biblical characters?

-They're all Biblical characters.

0:25:280:25:31

You don't know Mash from the Book of Genesis?

0:25:310:25:33

A more obscure character, maybe, but they all are Biblical characters.

0:25:330:25:36

He's my favourite, yeah(!)

0:25:360:25:38

So, you found two groups and you gave me two connections as well,

0:25:380:25:41

so that is a total of four points.

0:25:410:25:43

Let's have a look at the scores.

0:25:430:25:45

Missing vowels time. This is where the championship will be decided.

0:25:520:25:58

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:25:580:26:01

The first group are all...

0:26:010:26:03

Wayfarers.

0:26:100:26:12

-Henry V, Damian Lewis.

-Not right, I'm afraid.

0:26:120:26:15

-String Section, do you know?

-Henry V and Damian Lewis.

0:26:150:26:17

No, that's not right either.

0:26:170:26:19

Next clue.

0:26:210:26:23

String Section?

0:26:250:26:26

-Henry V and Dominic West.

-No.

0:26:260:26:28

0:26:280:26:29

Next clue.

0:26:320:26:34

0:26:370:26:38

Correct.

0:26:400:26:41

Wayfarers?

0:26:430:26:44

-I was going to say...

-Too long, I'm afraid. String Section?

0:26:440:26:47

Well done. Next category.

0:26:480:26:50

0:27:240:27:25

-Wayfarers?

-Would you like to know the specials?

0:27:290:27:31

Not it, I'm afraid. String Section?

0:27:310:27:33

That's right.

0:27:330:27:34

END TUNE PLAYS

0:27:340:27:39

No time for another clue

0:27:390:27:41

because the bell has gone for the end of the quiz.

0:27:410:27:43

And I can tell you that finishing with 15 points,

0:27:430:27:48

the new champions of Only Connect are...

0:27:480:27:51

the String Section!

0:27:510:27:53

THEY SIGH Very well done to you.

0:27:530:27:54

Extremely well quizzed.

0:27:540:27:56

Wayfarers, you're an honourable

0:27:560:27:58

second with 12 points.

0:27:580:27:59

Very good quizzing over there

0:27:590:28:01

as well. Well done, all of you.

0:28:010:28:02

You've had a really great run.

0:28:020:28:03

And you guys, particularly.

0:28:030:28:05

Many congratulations.

0:28:050:28:07

So that's it, the night is over and we have new champions.

0:28:070:28:11

Now for our fabulous closing ceremony,

0:28:110:28:13

and the string quartet is going to play us out.

0:28:130:28:16

I know, it's gone crazy.

0:28:160:28:17

That's the thing with television, the money is just mad.

0:28:170:28:20

A quartet in here, out the back, we've got

0:28:200:28:22

a full orchestra doing the catering.

0:28:220:28:24

In my dressing room, I no longer have a mirror,

0:28:240:28:26

I've got a trained mime wearing a perfect replica of my clothes.

0:28:260:28:31

These are the end times.

0:28:310:28:33

Goodbye.

0:28:330:28:34

In the grand final, two teams battle it out to be named Only Connect series champions. They compete to draw together the connections between things which, at first glance, seem utterly random.

So join Victoria Coren Mitchell if you want to know what connects Foke, Hombay, Egantic and Leakfast.
