The ghosts of past, present and future

0:00:210:00:24

appeared to me again last night.

0:00:240:00:26

I've begged them to leave me alone, but they just keep coming.

0:00:260:00:29

They're always there.

0:00:290:00:31

Around this time of year, it feels like I'm constantly staring

0:00:310:00:34

into the hollow eyes of a weird, chilling, mismatched trio.

0:00:340:00:39

Let's meet the teams.

0:00:400:00:42

On my right, John Payne,

0:00:420:00:44

a Surrey University student who buys his clothes

0:00:440:00:47

exclusively from charity shops,

0:00:470:00:49

Richard Arthur,

0:00:490:00:50

a geography and geology teacher

0:00:500:00:52

who stood on the Krakatoa volcano while it was erupting,

0:00:520:00:56

and their captain, Sanjoy Sen,

0:00:560:00:59

a chemical engineer who had a Scottish £10 note

0:00:590:01:01

stolen from a hotel safe in Paraguay.

0:01:010:01:04

United by a weakness for walking,

0:01:040:01:06

they are the Wanderers.

0:01:060:01:07

You won your opening heat against the Pedagogues.

0:01:070:01:10

-How did that match go?

-Well, we got off to a flying start,

0:01:100:01:12

and then the others came back

0:01:120:01:14

really strongly in the final round,

0:01:140:01:16

so we're just very pleased to be here.

0:01:160:01:18

Have you been practising the missing vowels since we saw you last?

0:01:180:01:21

We've done our best.

0:01:210:01:22

You are facing, this evening, on my left,

0:01:220:01:25

Luke Kelly, a European studies graduate

0:01:250:01:28

who once said, "Hello, Dolly!" to Dolly Parton in a corridor,

0:01:280:01:33

Rob Cumming, a football fanatic

0:01:330:01:35

who owns a pet rabbit named Buster,

0:01:350:01:37

and their captain, Julia Hobbs,

0:01:370:01:40

a travel enthusiast who owns over 200 bottles of nail varnish.

0:01:400:01:44

All keen quiz writers,

0:01:440:01:45

they are the Inquisitors.

0:01:450:01:47

You won your opening heat against the Cricketers.

0:01:470:01:49

Was that perfect strategy? Anything you'd do different?

0:01:490:01:52

Erm, I think we'll just play the same way we played last time.

0:01:520:01:55

We pulled together really well as a team, I thought,

0:01:550:01:58

and we'll just see how this goes.

0:01:580:02:01

I think we'll do our best to repeat that success.

0:02:010:02:03

Well, you've started well cos you've won the toss,

0:02:030:02:06

so you'll be going first.

0:02:060:02:07

Please choose

0:02:070:02:08

an Egyptian hieroglyph.

0:02:080:02:09

-Lion, please.

-OK.

0:02:090:02:11

The Lion question.

0:02:110:02:12

It is the music question,

0:02:120:02:14

so that will be the first one

0:02:140:02:15

of this show.

0:02:150:02:16

You'll be hearing the clues.

0:02:160:02:18

They have something in common. What is it?

0:02:180:02:20

Time starts now.

0:02:200:02:21

# You got the money

0:02:210:02:22

# But who needs the tension?

0:02:220:02:24

# And fear's no cheaper

0:02:240:02:25

# On the old age pension

0:02:250:02:27

# There's just one thing

0:02:270:02:28

-# That I forgot to mention... #

-Next, please.

0:02:280:02:31

UP-BEAT MUSIC PLAYS

0:02:310:02:33

-That's Baby Elephant Walk.

-OK.

0:02:330:02:35

I don't know what it is.

0:02:350:02:36

-Another one?

-Yeah.

-Next, please.

0:02:360:02:39

CLASSICAL MUSIC PLAYS

0:02:390:02:43

Could it be animals?

0:02:450:02:47

HE WHISPERS

0:02:470:02:50

Animals? Another one? Next, please.

0:02:500:02:52

# Ho, the aim of our patrol

0:02:520:02:54

# Is a question rather droll

0:02:540:02:56

-# For to march and drill... #

-BELL RINGS

0:02:560:02:58

-Elephants.

-The answer is elephants.

0:02:580:03:01

I think you knew that quite early on.

0:03:010:03:02

After the second one, that was Baby...

0:03:020:03:04

I didn't know what the first one was, though, so...

0:03:040:03:06

-The first one - Boomtown Rats, Elephant's Graveyard.

-Ah.

0:03:060:03:09

-Second one - Baby Elephant Walk.

-Yeah.

0:03:090:03:12

And then the third one - the Elephant part

0:03:120:03:13

-of The Carnival Of The Animals by Saint-Saens.

-Yeah.

0:03:130:03:16

What was the last one?

0:03:160:03:17

-From The Jungle Book.

-That's right.

0:03:170:03:19

Colonel Hathi's March -

0:03:190:03:20

the elephant from The Jungle Book.

0:03:200:03:22

Well done for your first point.

0:03:220:03:24

Wanderers, what would you like?

0:03:240:03:25

-Water, please.

-Water.

0:03:250:03:27

What is the connection between

0:03:270:03:28

these clues? Here's the first.

0:03:280:03:30

I know nothing about Apple.

0:03:320:03:35

Next, please.

0:03:350:03:36

Irvin?

0:03:380:03:40

-I haven't got a clue.

-No. Makes sense with the...

-Next.

0:03:410:03:45

Oh, it's the font or something.

0:03:460:03:49

Is it the font that's used in the...?

0:03:490:03:51

Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:03:510:03:53

Shall we try it?

0:03:530:03:54

BELL RINGS

0:03:540:03:56

Fonts.

0:03:560:03:57

The answer is fonts and typefaces.

0:03:570:03:59

You didn't need to see the last one.

0:03:590:04:01

The Guardian, Guardian Family.

0:04:010:04:03

That's right, they are all the fonts

0:04:030:04:04

or typefaces used

0:04:040:04:06

for the thing above.

0:04:060:04:07

Well done.

0:04:070:04:08

Inquisitors, your turn again.

0:04:080:04:10

The Eye of Horus, please.

0:04:100:04:11

The Eye of Horus. OK, what is

0:04:110:04:13

the connection between these clues?

0:04:130:04:14

Here's the first.

0:04:140:04:16

Next, please.

0:04:200:04:21

THEY CONFER QUIETLY

0:04:230:04:25

That's hygge. That's hygge,

0:04:250:04:27

-so that's got...

-So, comfy?

0:04:270:04:29

Comfort. Comforting. Your comfort.

0:04:290:04:32

Yeah, that's good.

0:04:320:04:33

-Shall we go for that?

-BELL RINGS

0:04:330:04:35

We're going to say comfort.

0:04:350:04:37

That is not really

0:04:370:04:39

an acceptable answer,

0:04:390:04:40

looking at the wording of the clues.

0:04:400:04:43

I can't give it to you, I'm afraid.

0:04:430:04:44

I'm going to show the next two to the Wanderers

0:04:440:04:46

for a possible bonus point.

0:04:460:04:48

Schadenfreude. Oh, it's all,

0:04:480:04:49

-like, German words.

-Yeah.

0:04:490:04:51

These are all German words

0:04:510:04:53

that are used in English.

0:04:530:04:55

They are all translations

0:04:550:04:57

of the concepts behind German words.

0:04:570:04:59

What are the words?

0:04:590:05:00

-BOTH:

-Schadenfreude.

0:05:020:05:03

And three other German words.

0:05:030:05:05

-Yes.

-Wanderlust is the third one.

0:05:050:05:07

Yes, wanderlust is the third one.

0:05:070:05:08

Fourth one - Schadenfreude,

0:05:080:05:10

malicious enjoyment of another's misfortunes.

0:05:100:05:12

What we feel when our opponents in a quiz

0:05:120:05:14

don't get a point, it's passed over

0:05:140:05:15

for the bonus - what we feel there.

0:05:150:05:16

State of wellbeing in a cosy environment.

0:05:160:05:18

Yes, I heard you thinking about the hygge in Danish.

0:05:180:05:20

Gemutlichkeit in German.

0:05:200:05:22

And the first one,

0:05:220:05:23

magnificent - Kummerspeck.

0:05:230:05:24

Literally grief bacon.

0:05:240:05:26

Absolutely delicious.

0:05:260:05:27

Just the food one eats

0:05:270:05:29

and gaining weight

0:05:290:05:30

from emotional overeating.

0:05:300:05:32

I saw the road to comfort there,

0:05:320:05:34

but it doesn't quite hold for the clues.

0:05:340:05:36

So, much Schadenfreude for you,

0:05:360:05:38

and a point,

0:05:380:05:39

and you may choose a question.

0:05:390:05:41

-Twisted Flax, please.

-Twisted Flax.

0:05:410:05:42

What is the connection

0:05:420:05:44

between these clues?

0:05:440:05:45

Here's the first.

0:05:450:05:46

THEY CONFER

0:05:480:05:52

Next, please.

0:05:520:05:54

"British TV ads - Bird's Eye Peas."

0:05:550:05:59

THEY CONFER

0:05:590:06:02

Not sure.

0:06:020:06:04

Could be a composer or something.

0:06:040:06:06

Next, please.

0:06:060:06:07

"Queen's Christmas Speech."

0:06:070:06:09

It's the first in colour

0:06:090:06:11

-or something.

-Yeah.

0:06:110:06:13

-First done in colour?

-Go for colour.

0:06:130:06:15

BELL RINGS

0:06:150:06:16

First time shown in colour.

0:06:160:06:18

First time shot in colour.

0:06:180:06:20

Very well done. And the last one -

0:06:200:06:22

World Cup finals in Mexico.

0:06:220:06:23

Do you know what year that was?

0:06:230:06:25

-That was in...

-'70?

-1970, yeah.

0:06:250:06:27

1970. Yes, you might see clips

0:06:270:06:29

of football matches from before 1970

0:06:290:06:31

in colour, but it's either

0:06:310:06:32

little clips or amateur stuff,

0:06:320:06:34

or it's black and white footage

0:06:340:06:35

that was colourised.

0:06:350:06:36

The Hitchcock film Rope - that was the first film of

0:06:360:06:39

Hitchcock's that was shot in colour.

0:06:390:06:40

First British TV ad

0:06:400:06:42

was Bird's Eye Peas.

0:06:420:06:43

And in 1967, the Queen's Speech

0:06:430:06:44

was in colour for the first time.

0:06:440:06:46

Well done.

0:06:460:06:47

Inquisitors, what would you like?

0:06:470:06:49

Two Reeds, please.

0:06:490:06:50

Two Reeds. OK, these are

0:06:500:06:51

going to be picture clues.

0:06:510:06:53

They all have something in common.

0:06:530:06:54

Can you winkle it out?

0:06:540:06:56

The time starts now.

0:06:560:06:57

-Who's that?

-It's Gerald Ford.

-That's Gerald Ford.

0:06:580:07:01

-Next? What do you think?

-Next.

0:07:010:07:03

Next, please.

0:07:030:07:05

-Ooh.

-That's Betty Driver.

-And...?

0:07:070:07:10

-Is Betty Ford...?

-Yes!

0:07:100:07:12

They're all married to Bettys.

0:07:120:07:14

-Let's go for it.

-OK.

0:07:140:07:15

BELL RINGS

0:07:150:07:16

Married to Bettys.

0:07:160:07:17

Very well done, for three points.

0:07:170:07:19

They're all married to Bettys.

0:07:190:07:21

Two clues you didn't need to see.

0:07:210:07:23

Can you talk me through the clues?

0:07:230:07:24

So, the first one is Gerald Ford,

0:07:240:07:26

who was obviously married to Betty Ford.

0:07:260:07:28

She founded the rehabilitation clinics. That's right.

0:07:280:07:30

The second one is Betty Driver.

0:07:300:07:33

I've no idea of her husband's name.

0:07:330:07:35

Billy Williams. Married to Betty Turpin, I think,

0:07:350:07:37

-more commonly known as, in Coronation Street.

-Right, OK.

0:07:370:07:40

And the third one is Barney Rubble -

0:07:400:07:42

obviously married to Betty.

0:07:420:07:44

And the fourth one is Frank Spencer.

0:07:440:07:46

That's right. "Ooh, Betty!"

0:07:460:07:47

All married to Bettys.

0:07:470:07:49

Very well done.

0:07:490:07:50

And one question remains -

0:07:500:07:51

the Horned Viper.

0:07:510:07:52

That will go to you, Wanderers.

0:07:520:07:54

What's the connection between

0:07:540:07:55

these clues? Here's the first.

0:07:550:07:57

THEY CONFER

0:08:000:08:04

-Oh, erm...

-Levi-Strauss is...

-Yeah?

0:08:040:08:09

-United Nations, World Bank, kind of IMF.

-Yeah.

0:08:090:08:12

-Shall we get the next one?

-Go on.

0:08:120:08:15

Next, please.

0:08:150:08:16

-Ah, he was the...

-FIFA.

0:08:170:08:19

Left in disgrace or something.

0:08:190:08:21

He was 100 when he died, and he was the ex-president of FIFA,

0:08:210:08:23

-so maybe there were...

-Next, please.

0:08:230:08:25

Yeah. Yeah, let's do it.

0:08:270:08:28

-Really?

-Yeah, it's 100.

0:08:280:08:29

BELL RINGS

0:08:290:08:31

They were 100 when they died.

0:08:310:08:33

These are the years when these people died,

0:08:330:08:35

aged 100. Well done.

0:08:350:08:37

Didn't need to see the last clue -

0:08:370:08:38

Bob Hope, 2003.

0:08:380:08:40

There's a great Bob Hope quote.

0:08:400:08:41

"You can always tell when

0:08:410:08:42

"a man is well-informed.

0:08:420:08:44

"His views are pretty much like yours."

0:08:440:08:46

Very well done. And I think

0:08:460:08:48

you spotted it after two clues.

0:08:480:08:49

Joao Havelange is, yeah,

0:08:490:08:51

the ex-FIFA president.

0:08:510:08:54

That's absolutely right.

0:08:540:08:56

And Levi-Strauss - a French social anthropologist.

0:08:560:08:58

Lord Denning - Master of the Rolls.

0:08:580:09:00

They all died aged 100. Well done.

0:09:000:09:03

That means, at the end of round one,

0:09:030:09:04

the Inquisitors have 4 points,

0:09:040:09:06

the Wanderers have 7.

0:09:060:09:08

Onto round two, the sequences round. What comes fourth in a sequence?

0:09:100:09:14

Inquisitors, I'll be asking you first again,

0:09:140:09:16

so please choose a hieroglyph.

0:09:160:09:18

-Lion, please.

-Lion. OK.

0:09:180:09:20

These are going to be picture clues.

0:09:200:09:22

What sort of thing would you expect

0:09:220:09:23

to see in the fourth picture?

0:09:230:09:25

Here's the first.

0:09:250:09:26

THEY CONFER

0:09:270:09:32

Next, please.

0:09:320:09:33

Who's that?

0:09:350:09:37

-Don't know.

-Don't know?

-No.

0:09:410:09:42

Next, please.

0:09:420:09:44

Bullion. Ingots.

0:09:460:09:48

Gold. Sword.

0:09:520:09:54

Oh, are they landing beaches?

0:09:540:09:58

-Sword.

-I'd like to go for it.

0:09:580:10:01

-Is that Juno?

-30 seconds. BELL RINGS

0:10:010:10:03

Omaha.

0:10:030:10:05

Is the right answer. Very well done.

0:10:050:10:08

A picture of Omaha.

0:10:080:10:09

What's going on in this sequence?

0:10:090:10:11

They are the Normandy landing beaches -

0:10:110:10:14

the operation names.

0:10:140:10:16

So, then Sword, Juno, Gold

0:10:160:10:19

-and Omaha, I think.

-That's right.

0:10:190:10:21

We're going east to west,

0:10:210:10:22

the Normandy landing beaches.

0:10:220:10:24

And the bloodiest of all - Omaha -

0:10:240:10:26

fourth. Well done.

0:10:260:10:28

Wanderers, what would you like?

0:10:280:10:30

-Horned Viper, please.

-OK.

0:10:300:10:32

The snake is yours. What would

0:10:320:10:33

come fourth in this sequence?

0:10:330:10:35

Here's the first.

0:10:350:10:36

Erm, next.

0:10:390:10:40

Hump.

0:10:410:10:42

No? Next.

Skin.

0:10:480:10:49

HE EXHALES

0:10:520:10:54

THEY CONFER

0:10:540:10:58

Skin - I don't know. Erm, could be

0:11:020:11:05

something to do with camels?

0:11:050:11:07

Erm, it could be the Just So tales.

0:11:070:11:10

We can go for spots.

0:11:100:11:12

-Try spots.

-BELL RINGS

0:11:120:11:14

-Spots.

-Is the right answer.

0:11:140:11:17

Richard, I think

0:11:170:11:18

-you recognised that.

-Yeah.

0:11:180:11:19

What's going on here?

0:11:190:11:21

Is it how the animals got their...

0:11:210:11:23

From Rudyard Kipling?

0:11:230:11:26

It is the Just So Stories. That's right.

0:11:260:11:27

It's just in order of chapters.

0:11:270:11:29

So, what are the animals?

0:11:290:11:31

I couldn't remember the throat one,

0:11:310:11:33

but the camel got the hump,

0:11:330:11:35

and leopard got the spots and I....

0:11:350:11:37

That's why it took us so long to get it.

0:11:370:11:39

It's how the whale got his throat,

0:11:390:11:40

and how the rhinoceros got his skin.

0:11:400:11:43

Do you know how the rhinoceros got his skin?

0:11:430:11:45

-No idea.

-No.

0:11:450:11:46

It was a smooth creature at the beginning of the story,

0:11:460:11:48

and it had crumbs scattered on it, so it was all itchy,

0:11:480:11:51

and it rubbed itself against a tree and went wrinkly.

0:11:510:11:54

That's how the rhinoceros got his skin.

0:11:540:11:55

Next along, leopard and spots. Well done.

0:11:550:11:58

Back to you, Inquisitors,

0:11:580:11:59

-for a choice.

-Twisted Flax, please.

0:11:590:12:02

The Twisted Flax. OK.

0:12:020:12:03

What comes fourth in this sequence?

0:12:030:12:05

Here's the first.

0:12:050:12:07

THEY CONFER

0:12:080:12:13

Next, please.

0:12:130:12:15

THEY CONFER

0:12:160:12:20

-What, next?

-Well, that's 22 squared.

0:12:230:12:26

No, sorry. Try the next one.

0:12:260:12:28

Next, please.

0:12:280:12:29

Hmm. Are you both...?

0:12:310:12:33

I'm not... Anything?

0:12:330:12:35

THEY CONFER

0:12:370:12:43

Three seconds.

0:12:430:12:44

BELL RINGS

0:12:440:12:46

0.0001.

0:12:460:12:50

Not the answer, I'm afraid. So,

0:12:500:12:51

a bonus chance for you, Wanderers.

0:12:510:12:53

I thought we knew it. I'm sorry.

0:12:530:12:55

No, you don't know? It is 0.0005.

0:12:560:13:03

This is a nasty hidden question.

0:13:030:13:05

They are the decimals of pi.

0:13:050:13:08

-ALL:

-Oh!

-So, 3.1415 and so on,

0:13:080:13:13

but we've taken out all the numbers,

0:13:130:13:14

apart from the decimals moving along

0:13:140:13:17

one, two, three and four.

0:13:170:13:18

So, 0.0005 is what I needed to hear.

0:13:180:13:21

Isn't that horrible?

0:13:210:13:22

-What a nasty quiz.

-Yeah.

0:13:220:13:24

So, no bonus points for you, Wanderers,

0:13:240:13:26

but you may choose a question.

0:13:260:13:28

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds.

0:13:280:13:29

What will come fourth in this

0:13:290:13:31

sequence? Here's the first.

0:13:310:13:32

THEY CONFER

0:13:340:13:39

-In the Olympics, for the first time...

-So, it'll be...?

0:13:430:13:47

-So, what will we go for?

-Next.

0:13:470:13:50

No, no. No, no, no, no.

0:13:510:13:53

I don't need...

0:13:530:13:54

THEY CONFER QUIETLY

0:13:540:13:58

-Golf?

-Do you want to do it?

0:13:580:13:59

-Was it South Korea?

-No, no, golf.

0:13:590:14:02

Oh, it's long jump. Oh, sorry.

0:14:020:14:03

-I didn't see that. Oh, no.

-Next.

0:14:030:14:05

Sorry. Grenada.

0:14:050:14:07

It's when they won their first medals.

0:14:070:14:09

BELL RINGS

0:14:090:14:11

2016 and...

0:14:110:14:12

Central African Republic.

0:14:140:14:15

I can't give you long.

0:14:150:14:16

No, I can't, sorry.

0:14:160:14:18

Central African Republic.

0:14:180:14:19

No, that's not it.

0:14:190:14:20

Inquisitors, do you want

0:14:200:14:21

to have a go for a bonus point?

0:14:210:14:23

-Go on.

-2016 -

0:14:230:14:25

-Fiji (Rugby sevens).

-A perfect answer.

0:14:250:14:27

-That's the one we chose ourselves, actually.

-Well done.

0:14:270:14:30

So, I think you know what this is

0:14:300:14:31

over there, which is

0:14:310:14:33

first Olympic golds.

0:14:330:14:34

The years in which these countries

0:14:340:14:36

won their first golds. I needed

0:14:360:14:37

to hear one of the countries

0:14:370:14:38

that won its first gold in 2016,

0:14:380:14:40

for example Fiji in the rugby sevens.

0:14:400:14:42

So, very well done.

0:14:420:14:43

That's a bonus point to you, Inquisitors.

0:14:430:14:45

Which question would you like?

0:14:450:14:46

-Eye of Horus, please.

-Eye of Horus.

0:14:460:14:48

What would come fourth

0:14:480:14:49

in this sequence? Here's the first.

0:14:490:14:51

THEY CONFER

0:14:530:14:54

Next, please.

0:14:560:14:57

THEY CONFER

0:14:590:15:01

Next, please.

0:15:080:15:09

THEY CONFER

0:15:110:15:14

-Countries...

-It could be countries, it could be countries...

0:15:140:15:17

-Countries in...

-Yeah, cos all the islands count as North America.

0:15:170:15:20

-So, what's the next...?

-I think it's going to have to be...

0:15:200:15:23

Um...

0:15:230:15:25

It's going down.

0:15:250:15:26

THEY CONFER

0:15:260:15:28

Three seconds.

0:15:280:15:29

Oh, I'm afraid the time's run out,

0:15:310:15:33

and that's the end of your go.

0:15:330:15:35

Wanderers, another bonus chance.

0:15:350:15:37

Antarctica, zero.

0:15:370:15:39

Is the right answer.

0:15:390:15:40

-Oh!

-No, honestly...

0:15:400:15:41

And why is that?

0:15:410:15:43

This is the number of countries

0:15:430:15:44

in each one of those continents in descending order.

0:15:440:15:47

That's right, it's continents

0:15:470:15:49

by number of countries, going down.

0:15:490:15:51

And which continent has the most countries?

0:15:510:15:54

Africa.

0:15:540:15:55

It is Africa - and most people would guess Europe.

0:15:550:15:57

Do you know many countries are in Africa?

0:15:570:15:59

57.

0:15:590:16:00

It's 54. 54, though!

0:16:000:16:02

Countries in Africa.

0:16:020:16:03

People would guess Europe,

0:16:030:16:05

because they think it's sort of a blizzard of countries, but no.

0:16:050:16:07

Quite surprising.

0:16:070:16:08

If you put this in a pub quiz,

0:16:080:16:09

you'd see a lot of people crossing it out

0:16:090:16:11

and then going, "Wait, hang on, which...?"

0:16:110:16:13

Trying to write them all down.

0:16:130:16:14

Good luck trying to write down the 54 African countries,

0:16:140:16:17

if you're trying to do that now.

0:16:170:16:18

I used to work with a lady

0:16:180:16:19

who could recite the list of African countries.

0:16:190:16:21

I was most impressed.

0:16:210:16:23

That's my kind of work colleague.

0:16:230:16:25

-How the hours must have flown by.

-Indeed.

0:16:250:16:27

I'm not even joking.

0:16:270:16:28

I'm not even joking.

0:16:280:16:30

So, very well done,

0:16:300:16:31

and one question remains.

0:16:310:16:32

Again, the Water question,

0:16:320:16:33

that is yours, Wanderers.

0:16:330:16:35

What would come fourth

0:16:350:16:36

in this sequence? Here's the first.

0:16:360:16:38

Next.

0:16:410:16:42

-Oh, that's...

-HE WHISPERS

0:16:430:16:46

It's a pantomime...

0:16:460:16:47

Er, next.

0:16:490:16:50

The number of girls in each one.

0:16:530:16:54

So, there's four, three, two...

0:16:540:16:56

So, what's the name of the other one?

0:16:560:16:59

One girl, one woman...

0:16:590:17:00

-What, is it two in The Liver Birds?

-Yes.

0:17:000:17:02

Miranda.

0:17:050:17:06

Exactly what we chose ourselves, correct.

0:17:060:17:10

And why is that?

0:17:100:17:11

These are sitcoms with women in them in descending order -

0:17:110:17:15

so, four, three, two and one.

0:17:150:17:18

That's right. Girls, the American TV show,

0:17:180:17:19

there are four central characters.

0:17:190:17:21

Do you know their names?

0:17:210:17:22

No.

0:17:220:17:23

Hannah Horvath, Marnie Michaels, Jessa Johansson, Shoshanna Shapiro.

0:17:230:17:29

Four title characters in Girls.

0:17:290:17:30

Babes In The Wood was that show set in St John's Wood

0:17:300:17:34

in London, there were three central characters.

0:17:340:17:36

The Liver Birds, two, of course,

0:17:360:17:37

so, we needed a show with one central female character -

0:17:370:17:40

The Vicar Of Dibley, you might have said,

0:17:400:17:42

Miranda was an acceptable answer.

0:17:420:17:44

That means, at the end of round two,

0:17:440:17:46

the Inquisitors have 7 points,

0:17:460:17:48

the Wanderers have 12.

0:17:480:17:50

Time now for the Connecting Wall, where four groups of four

0:17:520:17:55

have been jumbled up to make 16 random looking clues.

0:17:550:17:58

The teams must sort them back into their perfect sets.

0:17:580:18:02

You'll be going first, this time, Wanderers,

0:18:020:18:04

so, please choose Lion or Water.

0:18:040:18:06

-Lion, please.

-OK.

0:18:060:18:08

You have two and a half minutes to solve the Lion Wall, starting now.

0:18:080:18:12

-Right...

-There's castles in Scotland...

0:18:140:18:16

Falkland...

0:18:160:18:18

-Linlithgow, yeah, Dunfermline...

-Either Scone or Holyrood.

0:18:180:18:21

Holyrood, yeah, OK.

0:18:210:18:22

Right, so, which one...?

0:18:220:18:25

Holyrood... Into Linlithgow.

0:18:250:18:27

Yeah, OK, there's, er...

0:18:280:18:30

The... Neverwhere is one, American Gods,

0:18:300:18:35

Good Omens...

0:18:350:18:37

Stardust, Neverwhere...

0:18:370:18:39

American Gods, Good Omens.

0:18:390:18:41

Three lives now.

0:18:410:18:42

-So, there's Marks...

-'70s singers.

0:18:420:18:45

-Bryan Ferry...

-Right, before we do it...

-Noddy Holder.

-Right.

0:18:450:18:48

-Iggy Pop.

-OK...

0:18:480:18:50

-Bryan Ferry...

-These are so different, though.

0:18:500:18:52

-Controversy, Scone, Uranus...

-OK...

0:18:520:18:54

-URanus or urANus...

-Yeah.

-So, we've got BOW-ie or BO-ie.

-Yeah.

0:18:540:18:57

Hang on, so...

0:18:570:18:58

-So, we've got Holder, Noddy Holder, Bryan Ferry, Iggy Pop.

-Right.

-Yeah?

0:18:580:19:03

And the others are pronunciation differences.

0:19:030:19:06

That'll do.

0:19:080:19:10

You've solved the Wall, very impressive stuff.

0:19:100:19:13

So, that's 4 points, immediately, for the groups.

0:19:130:19:15

Let's look for the connections.

0:19:150:19:17

The first, blue, group, starting Falkland.

0:19:170:19:20

These are palaces in Scotland.

0:19:200:19:22

They are Scottish palaces.

0:19:220:19:24

-Cos you initially said castles when you were playing the Wall...

-Yeah.

0:19:270:19:31

..but I couldn't have accepted it.

0:19:310:19:33

No, they're not castles, they are all palaces.

0:19:330:19:35

And the next, green, group...

0:19:350:19:37

They are novels by the superb Neil Gaiman.

0:19:420:19:45

I'm very impressed.

0:19:460:19:47

You see, I suppose that's something you've either read or you haven't.

0:19:470:19:50

-Mm.

-You're obviously a fan.

-Very good, yeah.

0:19:500:19:51

And the next, pink or purple, group,

0:19:510:19:53

or whatever colour you see at home, starting Holder. What's that?

0:19:530:19:56

'70s pop star surnames.

0:19:570:19:59

So, Noddy Holder, Bryan Ferry, Iggy Pop, Marc Bolan.

0:19:590:20:03

They are 1970s singers, or glam rock stars.

0:20:030:20:06

And the last, turquoise, group, starting Bowie.

0:20:060:20:09

Um... So, these were...

0:20:090:20:11

Have differences in pronunciation,

0:20:110:20:13

depending on where you come from or who you listen to.

0:20:130:20:16

Well, that's right.

0:20:160:20:17

I mean, of course, there is only one way of saying each of these things -

0:20:170:20:20

Bowie, scone, controversy, Uranus, of course,

0:20:200:20:22

but they are contentious because a lot of people make mistakes

0:20:220:20:25

and pronounce them the wrong way.

0:20:250:20:27

So, I'll accept your answer.

0:20:270:20:29

You found all four groups for 4 points,

0:20:290:20:31

you gave me all the connections for 4 points,

0:20:310:20:32

I'll give you a bonus of 2 for getting it all right.

0:20:320:20:34

That is the maximum of 10.

0:20:340:20:36

Let's bring in the Inquisitors now, and give them

0:20:360:20:39

the other Connecting Wall, see what they can do about solving it.

0:20:390:20:41

I can't remember - how did the Wall go in your first heat?

0:20:410:20:44

It was very frustrating.

0:20:440:20:45

It was quite frustrating - we got the first two groups quite quickly,

0:20:450:20:48

and then there were lots of things that would fit into the third group,

0:20:480:20:51

and we just kept putting the wrong things in.

0:20:510:20:53

-Oh, that's right.

-Yeah.

-You left yourselves with about nine clues.

0:20:530:20:56

We left ourselves with lots, yeah, so - better this time, hopefully.

0:20:560:20:59

-I wish you better luck on this Wall.

-Thank you.

0:20:590:21:01

You have two and a half minutes, of course,

0:21:010:21:04

to solve it, starting now.

0:21:040:21:06

Ooh, God.

0:21:060:21:07

-OK, Van der Graaf Generator, Curette...

-Prog rock bands, as well.

0:21:070:21:10

-OK, go for it, then.

-Um...

0:21:100:21:12

-Focus...

-Traffic...

-Procol Harum...

0:21:120:21:14

-Van der Graaf Generator...

-Traffic.

-Traffic?

0:21:140:21:16

No.

0:21:160:21:18

-Yes.

-Yes! Procol Harum, Van der Graaf Generator, Focus...

0:21:180:21:21

Yep.

0:21:210:21:22

-Lancet...

-Lancet, caliper, curette...

-Curette.

0:21:240:21:27

-Retractor.

-Retractor.

0:21:270:21:28

No.

0:21:280:21:29

Well, keep going.

0:21:290:21:30

-Retractor...

-Retractor.

-..Lancet, curette - it's maybe not caliper.

0:21:300:21:33

Er...

0:21:330:21:35

Oh, OK, what are they?

0:21:350:21:36

-Do you know?

-Three lives now.

0:21:360:21:38

-Plenty of time.

-OK.

-So, we've got...

0:21:380:21:40

Caliper is something that supports...

0:21:400:21:42

Are there any wordy things here?

0:21:420:21:44

Could this be a U-turn?

0:21:440:21:45

U-turn... No.

0:21:450:21:47

You got disc and drum are types of brakes, aren't they, in a car?

0:21:470:21:51

-Hydraulic brakes?

-Hydraulic brakes, yes.

0:21:510:21:54

Oh, no... Disc...

0:21:540:21:56

Disc, drum, hydraulic - so, what are we left with, then?

0:21:560:21:59

-Possibly caliper.

-But then what have we got with these?

0:21:590:22:02

-Egg...

-Egg, system, traffic and U.

0:22:020:22:06

-U...

-Is a caliper brake really a thing?

0:22:060:22:09

-Traffic lights...

-Egg... But, oh, no, cos...

0:22:090:22:12

No, cos we're only on one of three lives.

0:22:120:22:15

EG...

0:22:150:22:17

-Cal...

-No.

0:22:170:22:19

-I'm not seeing anything in there.

-What's U?

0:22:190:22:22

-U-turn, U-bend...

-U-bend.

0:22:220:22:25

Nothing else, really, that's bend.

0:22:250:22:28

U... Egg...

0:22:300:22:32

-Boil...

-Boiled egg. Egg cup.

-Timer.

-Egg timer.

0:22:320:22:35

-Egg...

-Traffic...

0:22:350:22:37

-Traffic light...

-Traffic light, traffic jam...

0:22:370:22:39

Egg jam...

0:22:390:22:41

-I feel like it...

-I don't know.

0:22:410:22:43

-OK, I think we need to go for it, and...

-Caliper?

-Yeah, and just...

0:22:430:22:46

No, it's not it.

0:22:460:22:48

That's not it. I don't...

0:22:480:22:50

Oh...

0:22:500:22:51

-No.

-One life left.

0:22:510:22:52

-We've got one life left!

-Oh, of course, sorry! Oh, dear.

0:22:520:22:55

System...

0:22:570:22:58

-Disc jockey...

-Disc jockey. No.

0:22:580:23:01

-Eardrum.

-Eardrum...

0:23:010:23:04

Caliper, caliper...

0:23:040:23:06

Slipped disc, slipped...

0:23:060:23:08

Brake system...

0:23:090:23:10

-Hydraulic, drum... Traffic... System...

-U brake.

-U brake?

0:23:100:23:16

-20 seconds.

-Did we not do that one?

-No, we didn't.

0:23:160:23:20

OK, well, give it a go.

0:23:200:23:22

-No.

-No.

-That's your third life, and the Wall has frozen -

0:23:220:23:25

but you found two groups. This is like last time, isn't it?

0:23:250:23:27

-Yeah, exactly like last time.

-You got two groups.

0:23:270:23:30

Well, let's see about the connections.

0:23:300:23:32

Procol Harum and so forth, at the top.

0:23:320:23:35

-They are prog rock bands.

-They are - and you got back quickly.

-Yeah.

0:23:350:23:38

Who's the prog rock fan?

0:23:380:23:39

I'm not a fan, but I know that Van der Graaf Generator

0:23:390:23:42

are a prog rock band.

0:23:420:23:44

My brother was a big prog fan.

0:23:440:23:45

The next, green, group. Rongeur, lancet, curette, retractor.

0:23:450:23:50

-They're medical instruments.

-Medical instruments.

0:23:500:23:53

-They're all medical instruments.

-Yeah.

-Do you know what they do?

0:23:530:23:55

A lancet is a long needle, isn't it?

0:23:550:23:57

It makes little incisions, yeah.

0:23:570:23:58

A retractor opens you up -

0:23:580:23:59

once they've sliced you, it puts your apart...

0:23:590:24:01

-Ooh!

-..to keep you...

-How nice!

-Cheery for the viewers. Lovely.

0:24:010:24:04

-This is Grey's Anatomy at work, here.

-Lovely.

0:24:040:24:06

-A curette's really horrible.

-A curette is something that cuts.

0:24:060:24:09

-A curette cuts.

-Slices.

-It scrapes.

-We'll gloss over that one.

0:24:090:24:11

-Rongeur?

-No idea what a rongeur is.

-I don't know what a rongeur is.

0:24:110:24:14

Heavy-duty forceps for removing small pieces of bone.

0:24:140:24:16

Medical equipment - and you can still get points

0:24:160:24:18

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

0:24:180:24:20

So, let's resolve the Wall.

0:24:200:24:22

There you go.

0:24:220:24:23

Caliper, U, hydraulic, disc.

0:24:230:24:26

OK.

0:24:260:24:27

-I think they're...

-It's got to the brakes.

0:24:270:24:29

It must be. Are they braking systems?

0:24:290:24:31

They are brakes. I heard you asking, "Is a caliper really a brake?"

0:24:310:24:33

-It is, on a bicycle.

-Oh, OK.

-Rim brake on a bicycle.

-OK.

0:24:330:24:36

And the last, turquoise, group.

0:24:360:24:38

Drum, egg, traffic, system.

0:24:380:24:40

Anything?

0:24:420:24:43

-No.

-No. Things you beat?

0:24:440:24:47

-It is things you beat!

-Oh, wow!

0:24:470:24:49

-Where did that come from?

-Just sort of, beat an egg, beat a drum,

0:24:490:24:52

-beat traffic...

-Beat the traffic, beat the system.

0:24:520:24:54

-Oh, well done!

-Oh, God!

0:24:540:24:56

-Things you can beat. Very well done, at the last minute.

-Wow.

0:24:560:24:59

So, you found two groups

0:24:590:25:01

and you told me all four connections.

0:25:010:25:03

That's a total of 6.

0:25:030:25:04

Let's have a look at the scores going into the final round.

0:25:040:25:07

The Inquisitors have 13 points, the Wanderers have 22.

0:25:080:25:12

If you'd like to take part in the next series of Only Connect,

0:25:140:25:17

then why not go to the website...

0:25:170:25:18

..to find out how to apply?

0:25:210:25:22

Missing vowels time, now, teams.

0:25:230:25:25

Of course, this is round two, you can't be knocked out.

0:25:250:25:28

You simply aren't able to leave.

0:25:280:25:29

The doors are locked, you're here until well into next year -

0:25:290:25:32

but we might as well play it. What do you think?

0:25:320:25:34

-Yeah, let's do it.

-Pass the time.

0:25:340:25:35

So, we will take well-known names, phrases and sayings,

0:25:350:25:38

we will take out the vowels, squidge up the consonants,

0:25:380:25:40

and I want to know, what are those disguised clues?

0:25:400:25:43

If you get it wrong by so much as a single letter,

0:25:430:25:46

I'll take a point away.

0:25:460:25:47

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:25:470:25:49

The first group are all...

0:25:490:25:50

0:25:560:25:57

0:25:570:25:58

0:26:060:26:07

Inquisitors.

0:26:110:26:12

Avocado and Hess.

0:26:120:26:15

I can't give it to you.

0:26:150:26:16

Wanderers, do you know?

0:26:160:26:17

Avocado and...Hiss.

0:26:170:26:19

It's Avocado and Hass, that's the variety.

0:26:190:26:22

Next clue.

0:26:220:26:23

Inquisitors.

0:26:250:26:26

-Banana and Dwarf Cavendish.

-Very well done.

0:26:590:27:00

Inquisitors.

0:27:020:27:03

-Walk On By.

-Yes, it is.

0:27:240:27:25

Correct.

0:27:250:27:27

Inquisitors.

0:27:300:27:31

-Oh...

-TIME UP JINGLE

0:27:310:27:34

I'm afraid we're going to have to take a point away,

0:27:360:27:38

even though the bell has gone.

0:27:380:27:39

You clearly didn't know that one,

0:27:390:27:41

which was Tahrir in Cairo...

0:27:410:27:45

..but it does not affect the final outcome.

0:27:450:27:47

I can tell you that the winners,

0:27:470:27:49

and through to the next round, with 25 points,

0:27:490:27:52

are the Wanderers,

0:27:520:27:54

and, in an excellent second place,

0:27:540:27:56

with 20 points, the Inquisitors -

0:27:560:27:58

but you're not going home,

0:27:580:28:00

you're either through to the next round or a sub-round,

0:28:000:28:02

or still in this round, or going back to the first round.

0:28:020:28:05

I simply don't know.

0:28:050:28:06

We'll be meeting you again -

0:28:060:28:07

and you, very well played.

0:28:070:28:10

Thank you for watching.

0:28:100:28:11

I'm off to Cambridge, now, to visit the Seeley Library.

0:28:110:28:13

I don't know why they call it that -

0:28:130:28:15

it seems perfectly sensible to me.

0:28:150:28:18

Thank you.

0:28:180:28:19

Goodnight.

0:28:190:28:21
