Hello and welcome to Only Connect, series 13.

0:00:210:00:25

Ooh!

0:00:250:00:27

You might be one of those people who thinks it's unlucky

0:00:270:00:29

to watch the 13th series of anything but if you stick with us,

0:00:290:00:32

I promise it will be absolutely spooktacular,

0:00:320:00:36

a fiendtastic extravaghostra.

0:00:360:00:39

Over the course of the episodes, you might hear the clank of chains,

0:00:390:00:43

an unexplained whimper, a strange rustle behind the camera.

0:00:430:00:48

Hi, Russell.

0:00:480:00:50

But let's go ahead now and meet our first batch of victims -

0:00:500:00:53

contestants - victims - contestants - vic...vic...vic...

0:00:530:00:56

On my right, James Baillie, a Cambridge history graduate

0:00:560:01:00

with a passion for spoken-word storytelling,

0:01:000:01:03

Sam Brennan, a chess coach

0:01:030:01:06

from Ipswich, who has size 17 feet,

0:01:060:01:09

and their captain, Samuel Cook,

0:01:090:01:12

a PhD student, who fell over twice when visiting Chernobyl

0:01:120:01:15

but has suffered no other ill effects so far.

0:01:150:01:19

Resplendent this evening, they are the Stewards.

0:01:190:01:22

You're all looking lovely. Are you airline stewards?

0:01:220:01:24

No, we're all successive stewards of the Cambridge Tolkien Society,

0:01:240:01:28

so successive presidents of the society.

0:01:280:01:30

And, despite appearances, we are not a cult.

0:01:300:01:34

Good luck. Thank you for coming.

0:01:340:01:35

You are playing, tonight, on my left,

0:01:350:01:38

Tracey Rawlins, a community development worker,

0:01:380:01:41

who once took part in the world's largest tap dance with Roy Castle,

0:01:410:01:44

Andy Rawlins, a programme manager and keen barbecue chef,

0:01:440:01:48

who was taught to cook an ostrich egg on an open fire

0:01:480:01:51

by a bushman in Botswana,

0:01:510:01:53

and their captain, Ian Fellows,

0:01:530:01:56

a vicar whose set of nativity scarecrows won

0:01:560:01:58

the 2016 Wythenshawe Community Scarecrow Award.

0:01:580:02:02

All members of the same church, led by Ian, the are the Parishioners.

0:02:020:02:06

You've put together an Only Connect team from your congregation.

0:02:060:02:08

-How did you pick who'd get in?

-I called round on a Monday evening.

0:02:080:02:12

As I went into their living room, there were these

0:02:120:02:14

and there was YOU on the television screen. The rest is history.

0:02:140:02:19

We'll see what kind of history it is. A gruesome one?

0:02:190:02:22

We'll find out by playing the quiz. Now, you won the toss, Stewards,

0:02:220:02:25

but you've decided to put the Parishioners in first,

0:02:250:02:28

so please choose an Egyptian hieroglyph.

0:02:280:02:30

-We'll go Eye of Horus, please.

-The Eye of Horus.

0:02:300:02:33

MUSICAL NOTE

0:02:330:02:34

Ah, the music question. What a lovely way to kick off a series.

0:02:340:02:37

Now, you'll know that round one involves

0:02:370:02:39

four apparently random clues.

0:02:390:02:41

Something connects them and these are clues you're going to hear.

0:02:410:02:44

What is the link between these pieces of music?

0:02:440:02:47

First one coming in now.

0:02:470:02:49

# I used to love her, I used to love her

0:02:490:02:52

# Once, a long, long time ago

0:02:520:02:54

# I used to love her, I used to love her

0:02:540:02:56

# Once, a long, long time ago... #

0:02:560:02:59

Next, please.

0:02:590:03:01

# Come on now, baby

0:03:010:03:03

# Oh, honey, twist and shout

0:03:030:03:06

# Twist and shout

0:03:060:03:08

# Oh, come on, come on, come on, baby, now, now... #

0:03:080:03:11

Next, please.

0:03:110:03:12

# Ain't no doubt, it's plain to see

0:03:120:03:15

# A woman like you's no good for me... #

0:03:160:03:18

BELL

0:03:180:03:20

We think that all of these songs or artists are related by carpentry

0:03:200:03:23

and the implements you might find around carpentry and do-it-yourself.

0:03:230:03:27

A brilliant answer. You didn't need to hear the last clue.

0:03:270:03:31

MC Hammer, it would have been.

0:03:310:03:33

But the answer is DIY or carpentry.

0:03:330:03:35

What did we hear?

0:03:350:03:37

We heard Jimmy Nail, singing Ain't No Doubt.

0:03:370:03:40

We heard Chaka Demus & Pliers.

0:03:400:03:42

-And the first one?

-Didn't know the first one.

0:03:420:03:45

-No idea.

-The Saw Doctors.

0:03:450:03:47

Do you know the real name of Pliers

0:03:470:03:49

from Chaka Demus and Pliers?

0:03:490:03:50

Oddly, no.

0:03:500:03:51

It's Everton Bonner and his brother

0:03:510:03:53

goes by the name of Spanner Banner.

0:03:530:03:55

Well done, you get two points. Stewards, what would you like?

0:03:550:03:58

Can we have the Lion question, please?

0:03:580:04:00

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

0:04:000:04:04

Here's the first.

0:04:040:04:05

Next.

0:04:110:04:13

-Hang on...

-INAUDIBLE

0:04:170:04:20

I'm not seeing it. Next.

0:04:220:04:24

It's Tom Cruise films. That's what it is.

0:04:260:04:28

Um... It's where Tom Cruise dies or...

0:04:280:04:32

No, does he die in all of them? Next.

0:04:320:04:36

Is it the starting shot?

0:04:400:04:42

Three seconds. BELL

0:04:420:04:44

Is this the starting shot

0:04:440:04:46

of the Tom Cruise films?

0:04:460:04:48

Not the answer I'm looking for, I'm afraid.

0:04:480:04:50

So, Parishioners you have the chance of a bonus point.

0:04:500:04:52

We went with the same. We'd like to go with the starting shot

0:04:520:04:55

and the finishing shot of Tom Cruise films.

0:04:550:04:58

That's not it either.

0:04:580:05:00

The key thing about these locations...

0:05:000:05:02

It IS to do with Tom Cruise. Those are Tom Cruise films.

0:05:020:05:04

They are places where he is seen running.

0:05:040:05:07

There's a bit of an internet thing going on around this.

0:05:070:05:10

People cut together shots of Tom Cruise running,

0:05:100:05:12

and he's actually put on his Twitter biog,

0:05:120:05:15

"Actor, producer,

0:05:150:05:17

"running in movies since 1981."

0:05:170:05:19

So, you see montages of him running

0:05:190:05:21

through all of these locations,

0:05:210:05:23

inexplicably getting older but running faster and looking younger.

0:05:230:05:26

Something very weird going on there.

0:05:260:05:28

Parishioners, no bonus point, but you do get to choose a question.

0:05:280:05:31

-We would like to go with the Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds.

0:05:310:05:34

OK, what is the connection between these clues?

0:05:340:05:36

Here's the first.

0:05:360:05:38

INAUDIBLE

0:05:400:05:43

Next, please.

0:05:450:05:46

INAUDIBLE

0:05:480:05:51

-Go for it.

-BELL

0:05:540:05:56

We think that if you put "ELLA"

0:05:560:05:58

after the word before the colon,

0:05:580:06:00

it gives you an instance of the second word.

0:06:000:06:03

So, your "patella" is your kneecap,

0:06:030:06:05

I think. "Rubella" is a disease.

0:06:050:06:08

Absolutely brilliant quizzing.

0:06:080:06:10

Yes, you are going to get

0:06:100:06:12

the points for that. Very well done.

0:06:120:06:13

And coming up, "Nut" - Nutella, spread.

0:06:130:06:15

"Salmon" - salmonella, bacteria.

0:06:150:06:18

You put "ELLA" after all of them

0:06:180:06:19

to make an example of what comes afterwards.

0:06:190:06:22

Stewards, back to you for a question.

0:06:220:06:23

-Can we have the Horned Viper, please?

-You certainly can.

0:06:230:06:26

OK, what is the connection between these clues?

0:06:260:06:30

Here's the first.

0:06:300:06:31

-Anything?

-I mean, it's an anagram.

0:06:350:06:38

Yeah, true, but... Next.

0:06:380:06:41

So, are they anagrams of things in the category?

0:06:460:06:48

I don't see anything else in "Doctor Who".

0:06:480:06:51

Next.

0:06:510:06:53

That's an anagram.

0:06:570:06:59

-That's also "Eleven..."

-"Plus two."

0:06:590:07:01

-OK, so...

-BELL

0:07:010:07:04

The thing in capitals is an anagram

0:07:040:07:06

of something else that would also fit

0:07:060:07:08

into the category in not caps.

0:07:080:07:10

That is equally brilliant quizzing from you. Very well spotted.

0:07:100:07:13

You didn't need to see clue four.

0:07:130:07:15

Tokyo is also an anagram of Kyoto. Talk me through the other clues.

0:07:150:07:19

What are the anagrams?

0:07:190:07:20

-So, "Twelve plus one" is also "Eleven plus two".

-Mm-hmm.

0:07:200:07:23

"Lemon" is also "melon".

0:07:230:07:25

Do we know the sci-fi?

0:07:250:07:26

I can't see it at the moment.

0:07:260:07:28

-Do you know over there?

-They are so young!

0:07:280:07:30

-It's Torchwood, isn't it?

-Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who.

0:07:300:07:33

-Oh, yeah, I should know that!

-That is absolutely right.

0:07:330:07:36

Each of these is an anagram

0:07:360:07:38

of something else that could come

0:07:380:07:40

into the category described.

0:07:400:07:41

Amazingly fiendish, that one.

0:07:410:07:43

Welcome back to the new series!

0:07:430:07:45

I hope we've moved back to Monday.

0:07:450:07:46

Good luck getting your head

0:07:460:07:48

round THAT on a Friday night!

0:07:480:07:49

Very well done, Stewards. Very good quizzing from you.

0:07:490:07:51

Parishioners, what would you like?

0:07:510:07:53

-We would like water, please.

-Water.

0:07:530:07:55

These are going to be picture clues. Works in the same way.

0:07:550:07:57

Something links them. What is it?

0:07:570:07:59

Here's the first.

0:07:590:08:01

A potato. A particular kind of potato?

0:08:020:08:04

A potato and a half. Spud?

0:08:040:08:06

Next, please.

0:08:060:08:07

That's the Epistle of Paul to the Romans.

0:08:070:08:10

So, it's a letter in the Bible.

0:08:100:08:12

Er...Romans.

0:08:120:08:16

-Potato... Anything at all?

-No.

0:08:160:08:18

-Tracey?

-No.

-Next, please.

0:08:180:08:20

-Leg...

-Oh, I wonder if they're all named after monarchs.

0:08:220:08:25

-Is that the Queen Anne leg and a...

-King Edward potato.

0:08:250:08:28

-And the King James Bible.

-Go for it.

-BELL

0:08:280:08:30

We wonder whether these are,

0:08:300:08:32

perhaps, all named after monarchs.

0:08:320:08:34

That's absolutely right.

0:08:340:08:35

As I heard you say, King Edward potatoes,

0:08:350:08:37

King James Bible, Queen Anne leg.

0:08:370:08:38

The King Charles spaniel, we're seeing coming up in the fourth clue.

0:08:380:08:41

They contain the names of the British monarch associated with it.

0:08:410:08:45

In October, 1995,

0:08:450:08:47

the potato became the first vegetable grown in space.

0:08:470:08:50

NASA has come up with the technology to grow potatoes in space.

0:08:500:08:53

Once you can grow potatoes, you can basically colonise it, can't you?

0:08:530:08:57

You can go and live on a planet. What else would you need?

0:08:570:08:59

You've got potatoes. What else would you need?

0:08:590:09:01

According to Matt Damon, not a great deal.

0:09:010:09:03

I don't eat potatoes, so I'm stuffed!

0:09:030:09:06

-Yeah, you could grow something else.

-Who doesn't eat potatoes?

0:09:060:09:09

Is it just potatoes or things in the potato family?

0:09:100:09:14

I...I...I dislike the sort of texture of most potato products.

0:09:140:09:19

-Chips? Crisps?

-I can do crisps.

-Roast potatoes? Jacket potatoes?

0:09:190:09:24

This is going to be a long night, settle in.

0:09:240:09:26

It would be no good for you, growing potatoes in space.

0:09:260:09:28

They'd have to grow something else as well.

0:09:280:09:30

No doubt, at some point, they will.

0:09:300:09:32

So, one question remains. The Twisted Flax,

0:09:320:09:34

and that will be for you. The first clue is coming up now.

0:09:340:09:37

Hooters. That's a type of bar,

0:09:390:09:41

isn't it, in the US?

0:09:410:09:43

Yeah, they famously have waitresses, in football tops.

0:09:430:09:46

Yeah, next.

0:09:460:09:48

Right, that's a thing in London.

0:09:500:09:52

That's the Tube that goes at night.

0:09:520:09:54

Er...

0:09:540:09:56

OK, next.

0:09:570:09:59

It's obviously the website. It has lots of reviews.

0:10:020:10:05

It has... Could be logo... Next.

0:10:080:10:10

Oh, are they all black and white?

0:10:120:10:13

Might be that.

0:10:130:10:15

Two seconds. BELL

0:10:150:10:17

Black and white?

0:10:170:10:18

Not all black and white.

0:10:180:10:20

I'm afraid I can't accept it, so, Parishioners, a bonus chance.

0:10:200:10:23

Our resident sportsman, I'll hand this to Andy.

0:10:230:10:25

They all have owls as their logo.

0:10:250:10:27

They all have owls as their logo.

0:10:270:10:29

Sheffield Wednesday, known as The Owls.

0:10:290:10:31

What can you tell me about the other clues? What about the second one?

0:10:310:10:34

-Very little.

-Has an owl as its logo.

0:10:340:10:37

-Do you know its name?

-No.

-Tooting.

0:10:370:10:41

The Night Tube that runs through London has an owl as the logo.

0:10:410:10:44

It's been running about two years, basically since I had a baby.

0:10:440:10:46

The day I started going to bed

0:10:460:10:48

at eight o'clock at night,

0:10:480:10:49

they developed an all-night public transport.

0:10:490:10:51

And Hooters, an American restaurant chain,

0:10:510:10:54

named after the owl in the logo, of course.

0:10:540:10:57

Named after the owl in the logo.

0:10:570:10:59

At the end of round one...

0:10:590:11:02

And on we go to the sequences round.

0:11:070:11:09

This time the teams will see up to three clues,

0:11:090:11:12

because I want to know what comes fourth.

0:11:120:11:14

They must work out the connection and then what is the next clue.

0:11:140:11:17

You're going first again, Parishioners.

0:11:170:11:19

-Which hieroglyph would you like?

-Eye of Horus again, please.

0:11:190:11:22

The Eye of Horus. OK, you are going to see the first in a sequence.

0:11:220:11:25

What would you expect to come fourth?

0:11:250:11:27

Time starts now.

0:11:270:11:29

INAUDIBLE

0:11:310:11:34

Next, please.

0:11:360:11:37

-Anything?

-No.

0:11:430:11:45

Are they kind of subsections

0:11:450:11:47

or paragraphs of Maastricht or something?

0:11:470:11:49

INAUDIBLE

0:11:490:11:51

Next, please.

0:11:510:11:53

INAUDIBLE

0:11:570:11:59

Membership of the EU granted then?

0:11:590:12:01

Yeah, shall we go with that? BELL

0:12:010:12:04

Membership of the EU granted.

0:12:040:12:07

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:12:070:12:09

So, Stewards, you have the chance of a bonus now.

0:12:090:12:11

-Leaving the EU?

-Leaving the EU is the right answer.

0:12:110:12:14

These are articles 47, 48,

0:12:140:12:17

49 and 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

0:12:170:12:19

Well done, and you get the next question. What would you like?

0:12:190:12:22

-Lion.

-Lion. OK, you'll be seeing the first in a sequence.

0:12:220:12:25

What comes fourth?

0:12:250:12:27

Time starts now.

0:12:270:12:29

Right, this is going to be computers, perhaps, or...

0:12:310:12:33

Yeah, next.

0:12:330:12:35

They possibly are computer things.

0:12:370:12:40

-So, it's cut, copy, paste.

-You sure?

0:12:400:12:42

-I think so.

-Shall we go for three?

0:12:420:12:44

-Yeah, I think it's "Paste".

-"Paste".

0:12:440:12:46

-OK.

-BELL

0:12:460:12:49

-Paste.

-Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:12:490:12:51

So, I'm going to throw the third in the sequence to the Parishioners.

0:12:510:12:54

So, we think it is whatever is represented by the letter Z

0:12:540:12:57

-when you press it with something.

-Undo. Undo.

0:12:570:13:00

Undo is the right answer.

0:13:000:13:02

Tell me what it is.

0:13:020:13:03

-Microsoft Office short cuts.

-They're short cuts, yes.

0:13:030:13:07

And the question writer of this one has asked,

0:13:070:13:10

"Does anybody have a favourite keyboard short cut?"

0:13:100:13:12

He's seen the show before!

0:13:120:13:14

Anyone over there have a favourite keyboard short cut?

0:13:140:13:16

Control + Alt + T, cos that opens the terminal,

0:13:160:13:19

which is what I need to do all my PhD work in.

0:13:190:13:21

Control + T opens a new tab in a web browser. That's a fabulous one.

0:13:210:13:24

Very well done,

0:13:240:13:26

for the bonus point, Parishioners. Your own question. What's it to be?

0:13:260:13:29

-Twisted Flax, please.

-The Twisted Flax.

0:13:290:13:31

These are going to be picture clues.

0:13:310:13:33

What might appear in the fourth picture?

0:13:330:13:34

Here's the first.

0:13:340:13:36

-John Lennon.

-Lennon and McCartney.

-Two of the Beatles.

0:13:370:13:41

Er, next, please.

0:13:410:13:42

John Paul, John Paul.

0:13:440:13:46

-Yes!

-In which case, it would be...

0:13:460:13:49

-Jump over the last Pope to the present Pope?

-Yes.

0:13:490:13:52

-Francis.

-Do we want to go Francis?

0:13:520:13:54

-Francis Bacon.

-Ooh, I like that idea.

0:13:540:13:57

-Shall we try it?

-Yes.

-BELL

0:13:570:13:59

We would like to go with Francis Bacon, please.

0:13:590:14:02

Not a sentence I use often.

0:14:020:14:04

I will give you the points.

0:14:040:14:05

We chose Francis Drake

0:14:050:14:07

but yours is an acceptable answer.

0:14:070:14:09

What is going on here?

0:14:090:14:11

We think it's the names of successive Popes.

0:14:110:14:13

-John Paul, John Paul II and then... Oh, my goodness...

-Benedict.

0:14:130:14:17

Benedict, thank you. It's a good job we're Church of England!

0:14:170:14:21

-And Pope Francis, the present pontiff.

-Absolutely right.

0:14:210:14:24

It's a series of Popes.

0:14:240:14:26

What do you think of the resignation of Pope Benedict?

0:14:260:14:28

-Phew...

-No comment.

0:14:280:14:30

A very wise thing and very good man who could give space

0:14:300:14:33

to somebody else to come in and take the job over.

0:14:330:14:35

That's very Christian of you.

0:14:350:14:36

There are certain jobs it really feels like you can't retire from.

0:14:360:14:39

Hosting Only Connect, for example. God knows I've tried!

0:14:390:14:42

It's not that they wouldn't let me.

0:14:420:14:43

They said, "Katie Derham will do the job,"

0:14:430:14:45

and I glued myself to the chair.

0:14:450:14:47

-Stewards, what would you like?

-Can we have water, please?

0:14:470:14:50

Water, yes, you can. What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:14:500:14:52

Here's the first.

0:14:520:14:54

That looks like an airport code or something,

0:14:560:14:58

but I don't know which one it is.

0:14:580:15:00

Um...next.

0:15:000:15:01

Um, King's Cross, Marylebone...

0:15:050:15:07

Right, so, is it Monopoly board?

0:15:070:15:10

-Oh, probably.

-Is it Liverpool Street

0:15:100:15:13

then Fenchurch Street?

0:15:130:15:15

Liverpool Street...

0:15:150:15:17

Shall we get the next one?

0:15:170:15:19

Yes, it's King's Cross, Marylebone,

0:15:190:15:21

Liverpool Street, Fenchurch Street.

0:15:210:15:23

So, what's the code for Fenchurch? FST?

0:15:230:15:25

-Er...

-Or FC something?

0:15:250:15:29

-Yeah...

-Three seconds. BELL

0:15:290:15:32

-FCH.

-Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:15:320:15:35

I'm going to show the third in the sequence

0:15:350:15:37

to the Parishioners for a possible bonus point.

0:15:370:15:39

Er, we would try PDN.

0:15:390:15:43

And why would that be?

0:15:430:15:44

As an abbreviation for Paddington,

0:15:440:15:46

which is the fourth railway station on a Monopoly board?

0:15:460:15:49

I mean, that's wrong in so many ways

0:15:490:15:51

that's it's quite fascinating.

0:15:510:15:53

Paddington, eh? There's no Paddington on a Monopoly board.

0:15:530:15:56

-Oh, Liverpool Street!

-Oh!

0:15:560:15:58

-LST.

-LST for Liverpool Street is the right answer.

-Sorry.

0:15:580:16:03

-Now, you were going for Fenchurch.

-Yes.

0:16:030:16:05

But, actually, in the order you go round the board,

0:16:050:16:08

Liverpool Street would be next.

0:16:080:16:10

And these are the National Rail three-letter codes.

0:16:100:16:13

I'm going to test you on some other codes.

0:16:130:16:15

What is the three-letter code

0:16:150:16:16

for Banstead?

0:16:160:16:18

B-A-D, BAD.

0:16:180:16:20

-Tattenham Corner?

-TAT?

-TAT.

0:16:200:16:23

-Uckfield?

-UCK?

-It's simply UCK.

0:16:230:16:25

Weeton in Yorkshire?

0:16:250:16:27

-WHY?

-WAT?

-WET.

0:16:270:16:30

Sandwell & Dudley is SAD.

0:16:300:16:32

-Henley-on-Thames?

-HOT?

0:16:320:16:34

I would think so. Nottingham is NOT,

0:16:340:16:36

-while Poole is...?

-POO?

-POO.

0:16:360:16:38

You may think so. I couldn't possibly comment.

0:16:380:16:41

Very well done for those bonus ones.

0:16:410:16:44

But there are no points and there are no points

0:16:440:16:47

for the stations in Monopoly cos we needed Liverpool Street.

0:16:470:16:49

OK, there is one more choice this round. Parishioners, up to you.

0:16:490:16:52

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds.

0:16:520:16:54

OK, what will come fourth in this sequence?

0:16:540:16:56

Here's the first.

0:16:560:16:58

Next, please.

0:17:010:17:03

INAUDIBLE

0:17:080:17:11

Next, please.

0:17:120:17:13

Tomato.

0:17:160:17:17

INAUDIBLE

0:17:170:17:20

-BELL

-Tomato?

0:17:220:17:24

Of course it is! And what's going on here?

0:17:240:17:27

There's a song from our dim and distant childhood

0:17:270:17:29

about some people say "Ee-ther" and some say "Ai-ther".

0:17:290:17:32

"Nee-ther", "Nai-ther".

0:17:320:17:33

When you say OUR dim and distant childhood, it's from a film in 1937.

0:17:330:17:36

It might be YOUR childhood. George and Ira Gershwin.

0:17:360:17:39

Tell me about the song.

0:17:390:17:40

It's a song about two people.

0:17:400:17:42

Is it called "A Fine Romance" or something?

0:17:420:17:44

Let's Call The Whole Thing Off.

0:17:440:17:46

A Fine Romance is a different song,

0:17:460:17:47

-but a similar sort of vibe.

-Yeah.

0:17:470:17:49

And it's to do with alternative pronunciations, isn't it?

0:17:490:17:52

You say "Ee-ther", I say "Ai-ther".

0:17:520:17:54

You say "Nee-ther", I say "Nai-ther".

0:17:540:17:55

You say "Pot-ay-to", I say "Pot-ah-to".

0:17:550:17:57

-That's where it falls down.

-Yeah.

0:17:570:17:58

And "Tom-ay-to", "Tom-ah-to" comes next.

0:17:580:18:01

One remaining question, Stewards.

0:18:010:18:03

No choice - it's the Horned Viper.

0:18:030:18:04

What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:18:040:18:07

Here's the first.

0:18:070:18:08

Next.

0:18:100:18:11

Next.

0:18:170:18:19

INAUDIBLE

0:18:210:18:25

Sixth sense... Seventh heaven,

0:18:250:18:27

sixth sense, fifth column, fourth...

0:18:270:18:29

-Something beginning with "Fourth".

-Yeah.

0:18:290:18:32

Fourth...quartile.

0:18:320:18:34

-Fourth quartile?

-BELL

0:18:340:18:37

Fourth quartile. So, quartile.

0:18:370:18:39

I will accept that answer. Tell me about these clues.

0:18:400:18:43

So, you can be in seventh heaven,

0:18:430:18:45

Sixth Sense is a film,

0:18:450:18:47

fifth column is a term

0:18:470:18:49

and then fourth something.

0:18:490:18:51

You went with quartile. We said "Wall".

0:18:510:18:53

The expression "fourth wall".

0:18:530:18:55

I've never understood what that means.

0:18:550:18:56

Breaking the fourth wall. What even is that?

0:18:560:18:58

Very well done for the points. And at the end of round two...

0:18:580:19:02

Time now for the Connecting Wall.

0:19:080:19:10

16 jumbled up clues that the teams need to sort

0:19:100:19:13

into four connected groups of four.

0:19:130:19:15

There are red herrings.

0:19:150:19:16

There are clues that may fall into more than one category,

0:19:160:19:19

but there is only one correct solution.

0:19:190:19:21

Your turn to go first this time, Stewards.

0:19:210:19:24

And you've got the choice - Lion or Water?

0:19:240:19:26

Can we have the Lion Wall, please?

0:19:260:19:28

OK, you have got two and a half minutes to solve the Lion Wall,

0:19:280:19:32

starting now.

0:19:320:19:34

-So, we have films starring Keanu Reeves.

-Yes.

0:19:400:19:43

Constantine, John Wick, Speed and...

0:19:430:19:46

-BUZZ

-No, something else.

0:19:470:19:49

-Hardball, probably.

-Yeah.

0:19:490:19:51

So, that's Keanu Reeves films.

0:19:510:19:53

So, these are the Greats.

0:19:530:19:54

Herod the Great, Cyrus the Great, Llewelyn the Great,

0:19:540:19:56

Catherine the Great, Peter the Great.

0:19:560:19:58

-So, it's five, so...

-Yeah.

0:19:580:20:00

Let's work out what the other two groups are before we try.

0:20:000:20:03

-Ebb, Fade, Wane and Taper.

-Are all the same.

-Decreasing.

0:20:030:20:07

So then we have Hart, Rice, Lerner.

0:20:070:20:10

And one of the others.

0:20:100:20:12

OK, let's solve the Greats then, cos then we can find out what it is.

0:20:120:20:16

BUZZ

0:20:160:20:17

-OK, I think it's going to be...

-BUZZ

0:20:170:20:20

..without Llewelyn.

0:20:200:20:22

BUZZ

0:20:220:20:23

BUZZ

0:20:250:20:26

BUZZ

0:20:280:20:30

BUZZ

0:20:310:20:33

-Yeah.

-Three lives now.

0:20:350:20:37

So then we think it's Taper, Ebb, Fade and Wane.

0:20:370:20:41

But what are these?

0:20:410:20:43

Peter, Hart, Rice, Lerner.

0:20:430:20:44

Joe Hart's the England goalkeeper, Condoleezza Rice...

0:20:440:20:47

Andy Lerner is a person. I don't know who that really is though.

0:20:470:20:50

Um...

0:20:500:20:52

-Peter could be Wane, Ebb, Fade.

-You've got a minute left.

0:20:520:20:55

-Right, that's true.

-Um, so it's definitely Lerner, Hart, Rice.

0:20:550:20:59

-In which case...

-I think it'll either be Peter or Wane.

0:21:010:21:06

BUZZ

0:21:060:21:07

-BUZZ

-Oh, we're on one life.

0:21:080:21:11

Rice, Hart...

0:21:110:21:13

-I think it'll be Wane.

-Wane seems more of a surname.

0:21:150:21:18

BUZZ

0:21:180:21:20

No, that's it. Those are your three lives and the wall has frozen.

0:21:200:21:23

But you found two groups and I will give you points

0:21:230:21:26

for telling me the connections.

0:21:260:21:28

Constantine, John Wick, Hardball, Speed.

0:21:280:21:30

Films starring Keanu Reeves.

0:21:300:21:32

They are Keanu Reeves films.

0:21:320:21:34

And the second green group?

0:21:340:21:36

They're all "the Great".

0:21:370:21:39

"The Great". That's right, and you can still get points

0:21:390:21:41

for connections in the groups you didn't find.

0:21:410:21:43

So, let's resolve the wall.

0:21:430:21:45

There we go. Starting "Taper", what is that group?

0:21:450:21:48

So, those are all synonyms that mean "to decrease", "decline".

0:21:480:21:52

That's absolutely right. Taper, peter, wane, fade.

0:21:520:21:56

Synonyms for each other. Types of decline.

0:21:560:21:58

And the last group, starting Hart.

0:21:580:22:01

They're all...goalkeepers.

0:22:010:22:03

A couple of them ARE goalkeepers

0:22:060:22:08

but, no, all together, they are lyricists of musicals.

0:22:080:22:12

-Like Lerner and Loewe, Tim Rice. Musical lyricists.

-Mm-hmm.

0:22:120:22:15

But you found two groups and you get three points for the connections.

0:22:150:22:18

That's a total of five.

0:22:180:22:20

Let's steward them out of the room and bring in the Parishioners now,

0:22:200:22:23

for a brand-new Connecting Wall, the Water Wall. Same idea.

0:22:230:22:27

You've got two and a half minutes to solve it, starting now.

0:22:270:22:31

Malcolm X, Inside Man....

0:22:340:22:36

Inside Man looks like a film. Standby, Deja Vu.

0:22:360:22:39

-Election kind of things.

-Election things, yes.

0:22:390:22:42

-Ballot, exit poll.

-Swing, exit poll.

-Shall we try?

0:22:420:22:45

-BUZZ

-It's something else there.

0:22:490:22:52

-Right... What's cleavage good for?

-Ha-ha.

0:22:520:22:56

-Might be a word.

-Cleavage, Cover, Ballot, Alter...

0:22:560:23:01

Oh, it's "Alter-NATE". Ah... Heart, Deja Vu, Swing...

0:23:010:23:06

-Note paper, ballot paper - is that anything?

-Yes.

0:23:060:23:10

-Er... Oh, dear.

-Maybe not.

-Alternate paper...

0:23:110:23:16

I wonder about the films. If Deja Vu is a film, it could be Inside Man...

0:23:180:23:22

-Malcolm X.

-Ricochet.

-Well done.

-That's one.

0:23:220:23:27

OK. Flight...

0:23:280:23:30

You're about halfway through the time.

0:23:320:23:35

-Swing. Does that have anything to do with votes?

-Swing vote.

0:23:370:23:39

-Alternate vote.

-Swing vote, no?

0:23:390:23:42

-Swing vote.

-Hustings. Exit poll?

-Try.

0:23:420:23:47

-BUZZ

-Try without Exit poll.

0:23:470:23:50

-BUZZ

-Take out Swing. Take out Swing.

0:23:500:23:53

-BUZZ

-No. Ballot?

0:23:530:23:55

BUZZ

0:23:550:23:57

BUZZ

0:23:580:23:59

-It's none of those.

-Oh, dear. Standby...

0:23:590:24:02

Standby ticket, flight ticket, charge ticket, alternate ticket...

0:24:020:24:06

Er...

0:24:060:24:07

-30 seconds.

-Er...

0:24:090:24:11

Um...

0:24:110:24:13

Change of heart, change of swing, change of cover... Note...

0:24:150:24:19

-Just try.

-Ten seconds. BUZZ

0:24:190:24:21

Alternate, Swing, Hustings...

0:24:210:24:23

BUZZ

0:24:230:24:25

Er...

0:24:250:24:26

Electric charge, electric cover...

0:24:280:24:30

Oh, dear. What a horrible wall.

0:24:300:24:33

People that have been looking forward to the return of this show

0:24:330:24:36

are starting to wonder, starting to miss what was on last week.

0:24:360:24:39

But you found one group and I will give you a point if you can tell me

0:24:390:24:42

what connects Ricochet, Deja Vu, Malcolm X, Inside Man.

0:24:420:24:47

We think they might all be films that starred Denzel Washington.

0:24:470:24:49

They are Denzel Washington films. Very well done.

0:24:490:24:51

And you can get points for the connections in the groups

0:24:510:24:54

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

0:24:540:24:56

That's how it should have been. The green group.

0:24:560:24:58

-Shall we go "charge"?

-Charge.

-That's not it. They are understudies.

0:25:010:25:06

And the next group.

0:25:060:25:07

-Ooh.

-Paper.

-Paper?

-Do you think? Just a guess.

0:25:090:25:13

We'll say paper, but we're doubtful. Go on.

0:25:130:25:17

I'm afraid it's "Take".

0:25:170:25:19

-You take charge, take heart, take flight, take note.

-Oh!

-Yes.

0:25:190:25:23

And the last group.

0:25:230:25:25

-These are all to do with elections.

-Election terminology, yes.

0:25:260:25:29

What's cleavage good for?

0:25:290:25:30

A question I've asked myself on so many occasions.

0:25:300:25:33

But you found one group and you get two points for the connections.

0:25:330:25:36

That is a total of three and, take heart,

0:25:360:25:39

there's another round to come. Let's go in and play round four.

0:25:390:25:42

We're now going to play round four, the missing vowels round.

0:25:490:25:52

This is where we put well-known names,

0:25:520:25:54

phrases and sayings into connected groups of four,

0:25:540:25:56

but we take out the vowels and respace the consonants,

0:25:560:26:00

and I want the teams to tell me what are the disguised clues.

0:26:000:26:03

Fingers on the bells. I can tell you that the first group are all...

0:26:030:26:07

0:26:380:26:40

0:26:440:26:46

0:26:460:26:48

-Why did you leave your last job?

0:26:510:26:54

0:27:240:27:28

-That's the best one.

0:27:320:27:35

Have a nice day.

0:27:370:27:39

MUSIC SIGNALS END OF ROUND

0:27:390:27:42

That's it. It's the end of the quiz. Good round from you there, Ian,

0:27:420:27:46

and very good categories from you earlier.

0:27:460:27:48

But I can tell you, at the end of tonight's game, the winners,

0:27:480:27:52

with 26 points, are the Parishioners.

0:27:520:27:54

And in second place, with 15, it's the Stewards. So, very well done.

0:27:540:27:58

You are through to the next round.

0:27:580:28:00

Stewards, you might be through to the next round.

0:28:000:28:03

We've got new rules again this series

0:28:030:28:05

and the two highest-scoring losers will go through.

0:28:050:28:07

Yes, a new structure.

0:28:070:28:09

I look forward to telling you about THAT over the next 37 weeks!

0:28:090:28:12

So, we may be seeing you again.

0:28:120:28:14

If not, you've looked wonderful,

0:28:140:28:16

you've quizzed very well.

0:28:160:28:17

Thank you for playing, and please join me next time

0:28:170:28:19

0:28:190:28:21

that's being replicated around the world,

0:28:210:28:23

from France's C'est Diabolique to America's Connect That,

0:28:230:28:27

all the way through to Australia's Strewth, That's A Nut Scratcher.

0:28:270:28:30

Good night.
