Hello and welcome to Only Connect.

0:00:210:00:24

Before we start, I just need to deal with a legal issue that's arisen.

0:00:240:00:27

We've been contacted by lawyers representing

0:00:270:00:29

Antony Costa from Blue, demanding to know why

0:00:290:00:33

none of the questions in the series relate to him.

0:00:330:00:35

The letter was appended by a personal note to me

0:00:350:00:37

from Anthony Costa saying, "I mean, it's not like it's difficult -

0:00:370:00:40

"there's me, Costa Coffee, the Costa del Sol...

0:00:400:00:43

"I'm sure you can think of another one!"

0:00:430:00:46

So I'd just like to personally reassure Mr Costa

0:00:460:00:48

and all viewers, there is no bias against any member of Blue.

0:00:480:00:53

Playing tonight are, on my right, Oscar Powell,

0:00:540:00:59

a geology graduate who taught his mother's two-year-old godson

0:00:590:01:02

to recognise a picture of Saul Bellow.

0:01:020:01:04

Lewis Barn, who can type the names of every

0:01:050:01:07

country in the world in four minutes and 59 seconds.

0:01:070:01:11

And their captain, Jack Bennett, who was signed up to his school

0:01:110:01:14

swimming team despite the fact that he couldn't swim.

0:01:140:01:18

United by a talent for tailoring, they are the Dandies.

0:01:180:01:22

Now, you beat the Arrowheads in your last game.

0:01:220:01:24

How important is it to you to stay in the competition?

0:01:240:01:27

Erm, well, we've got used to being in Cardiff and, you know,

0:01:270:01:30

the scenery here, so we'd like to stay for a bit longer, if possible.

0:01:300:01:34

Well, it's worth it for that alone.

0:01:340:01:36

I hope you stay here for as long as possible.

0:01:360:01:38

You are playing tonight, on my left, Frank Paul,

0:01:380:01:42

an Arabic and Islamic Studies graduate who spent the night

0:01:420:01:45

on a hillside in the Pennines after losing his way on a hike.

0:01:450:01:49

Tom Rowell, a gin enthusiast whose stepbrother is also named

0:01:490:01:53

Tom Rowell.

0:01:530:01:54

And their captain, Lydia Mizon,

0:01:540:01:56

an American Studies graduate whose great-great-great-great-great-great-

0:01:560:02:00

great grandfather was Dick Turpin's twin brother.

0:02:000:02:03

United by a passion for padlocks, they are the Escapologists.

0:02:030:02:06

Now, you beat the Cricketers to make it through to this round.

0:02:060:02:10

Do you have any strategy in mind for tonight?

0:02:100:02:12

Erm, maintaining a fine balance between lateral thinking and panic.

0:02:120:02:16

That sounds like a perfect strategy for life in general,

0:02:160:02:19

if not the quiz.

0:02:190:02:21

Now, Escapologists, you won the toss, so you will be going first.

0:02:210:02:24

-Please choose an Egyptian hieroglyph.

-Horned Viper, please.

0:02:240:02:27

OK, that will be the first question of this game.

0:02:270:02:29

What do these apparently random clues have in common?

0:02:290:02:32

Here's the first...

0:02:320:02:33

THEY CONFER

0:02:340:02:36

Next...

0:02:360:02:37

THEY CONFER

0:02:430:02:46

Next...

0:02:510:02:52

THEY CONFER

0:02:540:02:56

-Maybe go to the next one.

-Is it for the left? Next...

0:02:590:03:02

Oh, the quenelle! Oh, what is...?

0:03:030:03:06

It's the gesture associated with that comedian,

0:03:060:03:08

the really offensive one.

0:03:080:03:10

-Oh...

-Two seconds. BELL RINGS

0:03:100:03:12

Offensive gestures in respective countries?

0:03:120:03:15

-They are all offensive gestures, that's absolutely right.

-Well done!

0:03:150:03:19

-Can you perform those gestures?

-I'd rather not.

0:03:190:03:22

I'm going to give it a go. I've got a list of instructions here.

0:03:220:03:25

The moutza in Greece -

0:03:250:03:27

extend five fingers in the direction of the person who's offended you.

0:03:270:03:31

None of you are Greek, I hope.

0:03:310:03:33

Five fathers, Saudi Arabia, OK...

0:03:330:03:36

Point your left index finger at your right hand and purse the fingers.

0:03:360:03:40

"Your mother's a...!" I can't say that on television!

0:03:400:03:43

Have you not come across this in your studies,

0:03:430:03:45

this Arabic hand gesture?

0:03:450:03:47

No, no, I... I had more civil interactions.

0:03:470:03:50

Idiota in Brazil - put a fist on your forehead and grunt. Ugh!

0:03:520:03:56

This may not be anything to do with the hand gestures,

0:03:560:03:58

they may just be having fun with me.

0:03:580:04:00

-And the quenelle, can any of you do the quenelle over there?

-No.

0:04:000:04:03

Isn't it...? You put your hand down or something?

0:04:030:04:05

It's like an inversion of a Nazi, it's up here...

0:04:050:04:07

Yeah, it's sort of down.

0:04:070:04:09

I'd like to apologise to viewers for all those terrible gestures!

0:04:090:04:11

It's purely factual, simply glossing the questions.

0:04:110:04:14

All offensive hand gestures, very well done.

0:04:140:04:17

-Dandies, what would you like?

-Lion, please.

-Lion.

0:04:170:04:20

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

0:04:200:04:23

THEY CONFER

0:04:250:04:27

Next, please...

0:04:300:04:31

THEY CONFER

0:04:320:04:34

Yeah, next, please...

0:04:410:04:43

That's Alcatraz.

0:04:430:04:44

-Was it The Rock that it was nicknamed?

-Yeah.

0:04:460:04:49

Er, next, please...

0:04:490:04:52

Oh, yes, it is, yeah.

0:04:520:04:53

-BELL RINGS

-The Rock.

0:04:530:04:55

Is the right answer. Do you know what the first two clues are?

0:04:550:04:58

-Prince Edward Island?

-It's Newfoundland, is the first one.

0:04:580:05:01

-And then St Peter.

-It's St Peter, of course, yes, Petra the Latin, rock.

0:05:010:05:04

-And who was the fourth person?

-Dwayne Johnson.

0:05:060:05:08

Dwayne Johnson, known as The Rock.

0:05:080:05:11

Lewis, if you were a wrestler, what would be your wrestling name?

0:05:110:05:14

Maybe The Legal Eagle? That'd be good.

0:05:140:05:16

The Legal Eagle - that sounds good.

0:05:160:05:18

I could fly in from the roof, you know, with a massive set of wings.

0:05:180:05:21

I tell you what, if you make the final, we will make that happen.

0:05:210:05:24

-Excellent, thank you.

-Arrange the eagle wings and the strings!

0:05:240:05:27

-Back to you, Escapologists, for a choice.

-Eye of Horus, please.

0:05:270:05:31

-The Eye of Horus.

-I'm so sorry.

-BELL RINGS

0:05:310:05:33

-You did this to them before, didn't you?

-I'm so sorry!

0:05:330:05:35

It is the music question - what do these musical clues have in common?

0:05:350:05:39

Here's the first...

0:05:390:05:40

# It's very fancy

0:05:400:05:43

# On old Delancey Street, you know... #

0:05:430:05:46

Next...

0:05:460:05:48

# Mississippi... #

0:05:480:05:50

That is, er, Black Velvet by Alannah Myles.

0:05:500:05:52

Next...

0:05:530:05:54

# Every night when the sun goes down

0:05:540:05:59

# Just another lonely boy in town... #

0:05:590:06:03

Next...

0:06:030:06:04

# I was tired of my lady... #

0:06:040:06:06

I don't know. Oh, this is...

0:06:060:06:08

# If you like Pina Coladas... #

0:06:080:06:10

-What's it called?

-Are they all drinks?

0:06:100:06:12

BELL RINGS

0:06:140:06:16

-Alcoholic...

-Are they all drinks?

0:06:160:06:19

-Tell me something else.

-Cocktails?

0:06:190:06:20

They're all cocktails! Absolutely lovely.

0:06:200:06:23

What did we hear?

0:06:230:06:24

-Er, Black Velvet by Alannah Myles.

-Mm-hm, and what else?

0:06:240:06:27

-Er, Pina Coladas?

-Yeah. You didn't know the third one?

0:06:270:06:31

-Tequila Sunrise, the Eagles.

-Of course.

0:06:310:06:34

And the first one, Ella Fitzgerald, Manhattan.

0:06:340:06:36

Whisky with sweet vermouth and bitters -

0:06:360:06:39

and this is what they give me!

0:06:390:06:41

You know? This is what they... Just neat gin, nothing else at all!

0:06:410:06:44

-Dandies, what would you like?

-Water, please.

-Water...

0:06:440:06:47

These are going to look like picture clues.

0:06:470:06:49

It's not the picture question, it's just interesting clues.

0:06:490:06:52

What connects them? Here's the first...

0:06:520:06:54

THEY CONFER

0:06:570:06:59

Next, please.

0:07:020:07:03

What is a pass note? I don't know what that is.

0:07:060:07:09

Er, next, please.

0:07:090:07:11

-Eddy Shah.

-He founded the newspaper Today.

0:07:140:07:16

Oh, it's things like... Defunct newspapers!

0:07:160:07:18

BELL RINGS

0:07:180:07:20

Defunct newspapers?

0:07:200:07:21

Tell me a little bit more.

0:07:220:07:24

Yeah, and their founding dates or dates of publication.

0:07:240:07:26

I'll have to give it to you -

0:07:260:07:28

their birth and death appear on those tombstones,

0:07:280:07:30

so we see the day that they were founded and the day that they

0:07:300:07:33

went under, and what's that last one you didn't need to see?

0:07:330:07:36

-Er, the News Of The World.

-News Of The World.

0:07:360:07:38

The News Of The World, closed in 2011.

0:07:380:07:40

Can you tell me what the other newspapers are?

0:07:400:07:42

Eddy Shah was Today, was it? Erm, Alison Phillips, The New Day?

0:07:420:07:45

-That was The New Day, well done.

-Er, I don't know the other one, but...

0:07:450:07:48

It was the Sunday Correspondent.

0:07:480:07:50

All newspapers that closed.

0:07:500:07:52

-Escapologists, what would you like?

-Twisted Flax, please.

0:07:520:07:55

The Twisted Flax, OK. What is the connection between these clues?

0:07:550:07:58

Here's the first...

0:07:580:07:59

OK, next...

0:08:020:08:03

Leopard is a sort of hybrid word, "leo" is lion and "pard" is panther.

0:08:110:08:15

-I don't know.

-Next.

0:08:150:08:17

Oh, are these kinds of, like, air kiss?

0:08:190:08:23

Next.

0:08:270:08:28

THEY CONFER

0:08:280:08:30

Two seconds.

0:08:370:08:38

BELL RINGS

0:08:380:08:40

Are they all to do with knots?

0:08:420:08:44

They are not all to do with knots, so, Dandies,

0:08:450:08:47

-you've got the chance of a bonus point.

-Measures.

0:08:470:08:49

-To do with measures of things.

-I need to hear something specific.

0:08:490:08:52

Measures of speed.

0:08:520:08:54

That's not it. The last one you recognise as knot,

0:08:540:08:56

which is nautical speed.

0:08:560:08:57

No, they are imperial units.

0:08:570:08:59

An American garden - what do Americans call a garden?

0:08:590:09:02

-Yard.

-A yard.

-A yard, a unit of distance, of course. Light kiss?

0:09:020:09:05

-Peck?

-Peck, exactly, so I'm sorry that nobody said, "Yes, please"

0:09:050:09:08

but there it is. Snow leopard, also called...?

0:09:080:09:12

An ounce, an ounce. So they are various imperial units.

0:09:120:09:16

Nobody spotted that one.

0:09:160:09:17

What would you like for your own question, Dandies?

0:09:170:09:20

Well, Two Reeds, please.

0:09:200:09:21

I'm glad it's that because that's the one I have to give you.

0:09:210:09:23

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

0:09:230:09:27

THEY CONFER

0:09:290:09:31

Next, please.

0:09:340:09:35

THEY CONFER

0:09:370:09:39

Is it words that have been removed from things?

0:09:390:09:42

-Emmerdale Farm was originally...

-Yeah.

0:09:420:09:44

What could The Chronicles be?

0:09:440:09:47

Torchwood or something? No...

0:09:470:09:49

Should we go next or have a go?

0:09:490:09:50

D'you want to do one more?

0:09:500:09:53

-It's going to be that, isn't it?

-Go for it, yeah, if you want.

0:09:530:09:55

BELL RINGS

0:09:550:09:57

Erm, words that have been removed from titles -

0:09:570:10:00

original titles of things.

0:10:000:10:02

-Of what things?

-Of TV shows.

-That is exactly what they are.

0:10:020:10:05

What were those full titles before the words were removed?

0:10:050:10:07

Farm, Emmerdale Farm. I don't know the first one.

0:10:070:10:10

The third one is Eight Simple Rules, is that correct?

0:10:100:10:12

Eight Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter.

0:10:120:10:15

-Erm, John Craven's CountryFile, is it?

-Oh, my word!

0:10:150:10:19

You really are young!

0:10:190:10:20

-John Craven's Newsround.

-John Craven's Newsround!

0:10:200:10:23

Yes, goodness gracious me! Do you know what the first one is?

0:10:230:10:26

I was thinking of the Trollope series, but it's maybe not at all.

0:10:260:10:29

-Seinfeld.

-Ah!

-Ah!

-The Seinfeld Chronicles.

0:10:290:10:32

Emmerdale Farm, and Eight Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage

0:10:320:10:34

Daughter, and they dropped them.

0:10:340:10:36

After the actor John Ritter died, it just became Eight Simple Rules.

0:10:360:10:39

Do you know what the eight simple rules are?

0:10:390:10:42

Number seven I quite like - "If your pants hang off your hips,

0:10:420:10:45

"I'll gladly secure them with my staple gun."

0:10:450:10:48

And the last one - "Dates must be in crowded public places.

0:10:480:10:51

"You want romance? Read a book."

0:10:510:10:53

Do you read romantic books, Oscar?

0:10:540:10:56

Er, probably...

0:10:560:10:58

I did once actually accidentally read Victoria Hislop's The Island

0:10:580:11:01

because it's set on a leper colony, and I was going through

0:11:010:11:03

an obsession with leprosy at the time, it was in year eight.

0:11:030:11:06

I love that answer.

0:11:060:11:08

Is there any other show on television where a person would say,

0:11:080:11:10

"I was disappointed.

0:11:100:11:11

-"Turned out to be about love - I was hoping for leprosy."

-Yeah, leprosy.

0:11:110:11:15

That is a brilliant answer.

0:11:150:11:17

And that means, at the end of Round One,

0:11:170:11:19

the Escapologists have two points, the Dandies have six.

0:11:190:11:22

On to Round Two, the Sequences round.

0:11:250:11:26

Escapologists, you'll be going first again. What would you like?

0:11:260:11:30

Lion, please.

0:11:300:11:31

Lion. You'll be seeing the first in a sequence of four clues.

0:11:310:11:34

What is the fourth one? Your time starts now.

0:11:340:11:37

It's not the order in which they joined the EU...

0:11:390:11:42

Shall we go next just to check?

0:11:420:11:44

But I don't know where it could be going.

0:11:440:11:47

OK, next, please. Does that work?

0:11:470:11:50

I think the most recent EU member is Croatia, isn't it?

0:11:500:11:53

-If this is indeed what we want to go for.

-Do you think...?

0:11:540:11:58

How confident are you it's Croatia?

0:11:580:12:00

-Er, I'm pretty... Fairly confident it's Croatia.

-Bosnia?

0:12:000:12:04

Well, I don't know. Actually I read that about two years ago.

0:12:040:12:07

BELL RINGS

0:12:070:12:09

28, Croatia.

0:12:090:12:10

Not the answer, I'm afraid, so let me just show

0:12:100:12:13

the third in a sequence to the Dandies for a possible bonus point.

0:12:130:12:16

-So...

-We thought it was 28, Croatia, as well, so we'll go for...

0:12:160:12:20

Is it number of MEPs? Does anywhere have 28 MEPs?

0:12:200:12:22

No, that's too long, that's too long.

0:12:220:12:25

-The answer is 28, Malta.

-It's the population, is it?

0:12:250:12:29

Well, it's...

0:12:290:12:31

Sorry, it's actually not population, it's size of countries getting

0:12:310:12:34

smaller by surface area, and Malta is the smallest country in the EU.

0:12:340:12:40

It's just about size, and 28 and smallest would be Malta.

0:12:400:12:44

So no points there, but Dandies, you may have a question -

0:12:440:12:47

-what would you like?

-Twisted Flax, please.

-The Twisted Flax.

0:12:470:12:50

What would come fourth in this picture sequence?

0:12:500:12:52

Here's the first.

0:12:520:12:54

THEY CONFER

0:12:540:12:56

Next, please.

0:12:590:13:00

Next, please.

0:13:080:13:10

THEY CONFER

0:13:150:13:17

Two seconds. BELL RINGS

0:13:310:13:34

Got to go with something. Birds? Loads of birds?

0:13:340:13:37

-You're thinking of Hitchcock films.

-Yeah.

0:13:370:13:39

That's not what it is, I'm afraid I can't take that answer,

0:13:390:13:42

so, Escapologists, a bonus chance.

0:13:420:13:43

Er, it's not gods, is it?

0:13:430:13:45

-It's not gods, but why do you say that?

-Ah!

0:13:460:13:48

-They're parts of a theatre, aren't they?

-They are parts of a theatre.

0:13:480:13:52

-I was thinking maybe going up...

-But we're going downwards!

-Ah!

0:13:520:13:55

The balcony, then the upper circle,

0:13:550:13:56

that's what that second clue denotes, then the dress circle...

0:13:560:13:59

We're going down to the stalls.

0:13:590:14:01

You're unlucky, well done for spotting the connection

0:14:010:14:03

but not the right next in the sequence.

0:14:030:14:05

Nevertheless, I'll give you a question of your own anyway.

0:14:050:14:07

-Which one?

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds.

0:14:070:14:10

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

0:14:100:14:13

One and two have both got Os in...

0:14:180:14:20

Next.

0:14:210:14:22

Two and three have both got Ts in, so four and five have both got...

0:14:240:14:28

No, so, it would be three and four.

0:14:280:14:30

So they'd be R, cos they've both got Rs in, and then four and five,

0:14:300:14:33

and they've both got Fs.

0:14:330:14:35

-Four-comma-five-colon-F.

-Yeah?

0:14:350:14:37

BELL RINGS

0:14:370:14:39

Four-comma-five-colon-F.

0:14:390:14:42

-Is the right answer. And why?

-Erm, these numbers both...

0:14:420:14:47

These consecutive numbers both share those letters.

0:14:470:14:50

That's right. If you write out one and two in letters, they share an O,

0:14:500:14:53

two and three share a T, three and four share an R,

0:14:530:14:56

four and five share an F.

0:14:560:14:57

Well calculated - you get those points.

0:14:570:14:59

-Back to you, Dandies, for a question.

-Water, please.

0:14:590:15:02

The Water question. What will come fourth in this sequence?

0:15:020:15:05

Here's the first.

0:15:050:15:07

THEY CONFER

0:15:080:15:10

Do next please. Next, please.

0:15:190:15:21

Next, please.

0:15:270:15:29

THEY CONFER

0:15:300:15:32

BELL RINGS

0:15:430:15:45

Inside the Houses of Parliament?

0:15:450:15:47

Not the answer, I'm afraid.

0:15:470:15:49

Escapologists, do you want to have a go for a bonus?

0:15:490:15:51

-Er, on Mars?

-I can't accept it.

0:15:520:15:55

I love this question. I love this question. I love this question.

0:15:550:16:00

-Do any of you like crosswords?

-N-no!

0:16:000:16:03

Right, imagine these clues were all written out on one line.

0:16:030:16:07

If you look "in Bognor theatre" you will find the word "north."

0:16:070:16:10

Oh, north, east, south, west!

0:16:100:16:12

Between "large" and "asteroids" you will find "east".

0:16:120:16:16

"Inside a Swiss outhouse" - south.

0:16:160:16:20

And the last one, you'll see

0:16:200:16:21

it's written all on one line so you can spot it.

0:16:210:16:23

"Within Crewe station," you will find "west".

0:16:230:16:26

Hidden compass points within the words. I love that question!

0:16:260:16:31

Sadly, none of you got it right.

0:16:310:16:33

Which just makes me love it even more!

0:16:330:16:35

-Escapologists, what would you like?

-Eye of Horus, please.

0:16:350:16:37

The Eye of Horus. What will come fourth in this sequence?

0:16:370:16:40

Here's the first.

0:16:400:16:41

Next.

0:16:430:16:44

Next.

0:16:540:16:55

It's not... It's not the words of a...?

0:16:570:17:00

Rage against the dying of the light...

0:17:000:17:03

It's not, erm, The Star Spangled Banner?

0:17:030:17:05

"By the dawn's early light," something, something, gleaming?

0:17:050:17:08

-Something, something, fight?

-Gleaming...

0:17:080:17:10

What's the fourth line of The Star Spangled Banner?

0:17:100:17:13

Erm, something, something...

0:17:130:17:15

Two seconds. BELL RINGS

0:17:180:17:20

Is it "dreaming"?

0:17:220:17:24

I'm afraid it is not.

0:17:240:17:26

-Dandies, do you want to have a go for a bonus point?

-Erm...

-Teeming?

0:17:260:17:29

-That's not it either. You don't know the connection, do you?

-No.

0:17:290:17:32

-And you do.

-Yes.

-What's the connection?

0:17:320:17:34

It's the song about The Star Spangled Banner.

0:17:340:17:36

-Star Spangled Banner, isn't it?

-That's what it is.

0:17:360:17:39

Oh, say, can you see By the dawn's early light

0:17:390:17:41

What so proudly we hailed At the twilight's last gleaming

0:17:410:17:44

Whose broad stripes and bright stars Through the perilous fight

0:17:440:17:48

Oer the ramparts we watched Were so gallantly streaming.

0:17:480:17:52

"Streaming" is the word I wanted.

0:17:520:17:55

So, Dandies, one question remains.

0:17:550:17:56

Again it is the Horned Viper. What would come...?

0:17:560:17:59

BELL RINGS Ohh...

0:17:590:18:01

-What a treat - it's a music sequence.

-OK.

0:18:010:18:04

I'd like to know what sort of musical thing you'd

0:18:040:18:07

expect to come fourth.

0:18:070:18:09

The first one is coming in now.

0:18:090:18:11

# I wanna turn the whole thing upside down

0:18:110:18:16

# I'll find the things they say just can't be found... #

0:18:160:18:19

Next, please.

0:18:190:18:21

# Now everybody knows there's exceptions to this rule

0:18:210:18:23

# And don't be getting mad when we playing, it's cool

0:18:230:18:25

# But don't you be calling me out my name

0:18:250:18:28

# I bring wrath to those who disrespect me like a dame... #

0:18:280:18:30

Next, please.

0:18:300:18:31

# Unforgettable

0:18:310:18:34

# That's what you are

0:18:360:18:40

# Unforgettable

0:18:420:18:46

# Though near or far... #

0:18:460:18:49

Two seconds. BELL RINGS

0:18:490:18:52

Erm...

0:18:520:18:55

Don't know, erm...

0:18:550:18:56

They share their names with... Oh, the connection? No, don't know.

0:18:560:18:59

-I want to know what would come fourth in the sequence.

-Pass, sorry.

0:18:590:19:01

Defeated by that one, I don't blame you.

0:19:010:19:03

-Escapologists, d'you want to have a go?

-A song by Ace Of Base?

0:19:030:19:05

Is exactly the sort of thing you would expect to hear

0:19:050:19:08

in fourth place.

0:19:080:19:09

-What were the clues?

-Er, it was Jack Johnson...

-Mm-hm.

0:19:090:19:12

-Queen Latifah, maybe?

-Yeah.

-Ooh! Er, Nat King Cole, and then...

0:19:140:19:17

So it's jack, queen, king, ace.

0:19:170:19:18

Exactly so, something like Ace of Base, All That She Wants.

0:19:180:19:21

Sadly, we don't have that piece of music to play,

0:19:210:19:23

and it was something to do with the rights, we couldn't get it.

0:19:230:19:26

But the viewers will be wondering what is that song they won't know.

0:19:260:19:29

I think we could help them out.

0:19:290:19:30

One, two, three, four.

0:19:300:19:33

# All that she wants is another baby

0:19:330:19:36

# She's gone tomorrow, but

0:19:360:19:38

# All that she wants is another baby

0:19:380:19:40

-# Whoa... #

-Magnificent, magnificent.

0:19:400:19:42

I'll give them a round of applause for actually knowing

0:19:420:19:44

-the lyrics to the song, so...

-Yes, now you hear it, very well done.

0:19:440:19:47

And that means, at the end of Round Two,

0:19:470:19:50

the Escapologists have six points, the Dandies have six points.

0:19:500:19:55

Onwards to the Connecting Wall, and Dandies,

0:19:570:20:00

you'll be going first this time.

0:20:000:20:01

So, would you like Lion or Water?

0:20:010:20:03

-Lion, please.

-OK.

0:20:030:20:04

You have two and a half minutes to solve the Lion Wall -

0:20:040:20:07

starting now.

0:20:070:20:09

The Fog, that's a novel by James Herbert.

0:20:100:20:13

Lancashire towns, go for those.

0:20:130:20:16

Actually, I think Blackpool might well be a red herring for that,

0:20:160:20:19

-so if you see a fifth...

-There's swimmers as well.

0:20:190:20:22

What about Fleetwood?

0:20:310:20:32

Cos there's Fleetwood Mac and there's Mick Fleetwood.

0:20:320:20:35

Any other famous Micks, or indeed famous...?

0:20:350:20:37

-Any...? How d'you put Mac after...?

-I don't... I think...

0:20:370:20:39

Oh, John Bonham, he was the...

0:20:390:20:41

-Yeah.

-Was he a drummer?

-Yeah. Mick Fleetwood...

0:20:410:20:44

-Musicians, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:20:440:20:46

Try Gillingham.

0:20:460:20:47

What groups do we have? Let's focus on them... No.

0:20:490:20:53

I'm just randomly pressing... Erm, there must be a link.

0:20:550:20:58

Yeah, go for those ones and we'll try and work out the rest of them.

0:20:580:21:02

-Oh, Keith Moon, yeah, from the Who, so it is...

-Oh, yeah, yeah.

0:21:020:21:05

We've not left out Fleetwood yet.

0:21:130:21:15

Leave out Fleetwood this time, and we'll try those ones.

0:21:170:21:19

Well, which others do we have?

0:21:190:21:21

So what are we thinking we've got?

0:21:240:21:26

We think we've got guitarists, we think we've got places in...

0:21:260:21:29

Er, swimmers as well, and there's going to be one more.

0:21:290:21:32

I think The Fog might be a novel.

0:21:320:21:33

Well, it was also, like, an '80s horror film, but...

0:21:330:21:36

Just going to...

0:21:360:21:37

Yeah, go for it, try as many as you can.

0:21:370:21:40

Erm, I don't have anything, really, sorry.

0:21:400:21:44

No, this is not looking good.

0:21:440:21:46

-Fluke, you can get flukes on a ship, anything else?

-Ten seconds.

0:21:470:21:50

I don't see anything else there. Oh, God, I'm just picking randomly.

0:21:500:21:54

Just try it.

0:21:540:21:55

So that's it, the misery is over.

0:21:580:22:00

Yes, it's a pair of horrible Connecting Walls this evening.

0:22:000:22:03

But you can get points for the connections,

0:22:030:22:05

so let's resolve the wall.

0:22:050:22:07

There you go - what is that blue group, starting Adlington?

0:22:070:22:10

-Lancashire towns?

-They're all places in Lancashire.

0:22:100:22:14

And the green group - Gillingham, and so forth...

0:22:140:22:18

-Swimmers?

-They are swimmers, they're Olympic swimmers.

0:22:180:22:22

And that pink or purple group - Headon, Judd, Fleetwood, Bonham?

0:22:220:22:27

Well, founding musicians of bands, or guitarists.

0:22:270:22:31

Drummers?

0:22:310:22:32

Yes, I'm afraid they are drummers, but that was your third go,

0:22:320:22:35

so I can't let you have it. They are all drummers.

0:22:350:22:37

And the turquoise group - The Fog, Moon, Ash, Fluke.

0:22:370:22:42

Yeah, we'll say novels by James Herbert.

0:22:420:22:44

They are novels by James Herbert! Very well done.

0:22:440:22:47

I own The Fog!

0:22:470:22:48

You found that somewhere in your mind, very well done.

0:22:480:22:50

You couldn't solve the wall, but you did give me three connections,

0:22:500:22:53

that's a total of three points. Could be a lot worse.

0:22:530:22:55

Time to bring in the Escapologists now and give them

0:22:550:22:57

an equally horrible wall, see if they can wriggle free from it.

0:22:570:23:00

You'll be getting the Water Wall, cos the Lion's been taken.

0:23:000:23:03

You have two and a half minutes to solve it, starting now.

0:23:030:23:08

OK.

0:23:080:23:10

-OK.

-Manchester or something... No, no, no, I don't know.

0:23:100:23:15

Greenwich, Glasgow, Manchester, Mull of Kintyre?

0:23:150:23:17

Lizard Peninsula.

0:23:190:23:20

Hamilton Peninsula?

0:23:220:23:23

Butterfly kiss, French kiss, Eskimo kiss, Glasgow kiss?

0:23:330:23:38

No? OK, so...

0:23:380:23:39

-There's Glasgow kiss as well.

-It's not working.

-It's fine. Er...

0:23:400:23:44

Right, so shall we try some more peninsulas?

0:23:480:23:51

-Is Kuala Lumpur a peninsula?

-Possibly.

0:23:510:23:54

Erm, butterfly? No.

0:23:560:23:58

Greenwich, never tried that.

0:24:000:24:01

Horns there - French horn, Post horn, Hunting horn...

0:24:010:24:05

Hunting horn, Fog horn, OK, good. OK, so...

0:24:050:24:08

Erm, what have we got?

0:24:100:24:12

OK, we've got kisses - Glasgow kiss, Eskimo kiss, Butterfly kiss...

0:24:120:24:16

Greenwich kiss, Kintyre kiss...

0:24:160:24:18

This is getting... This is getting silly.

0:24:260:24:29

Erm, OK.

0:24:290:24:30

-Is that OK?

-OK.

-Would that be a peninsula? Have we tried that?

0:24:330:24:36

30 seconds.

0:24:430:24:44

-Oh, lovely.

-Three lives.

0:24:510:24:52

So we've still got Glasgow kiss, Eskimo kiss, Butterfly kiss,

0:24:520:24:56

Lizard kiss?

0:24:560:24:58

Did we try Manchester? We did try.

0:24:580:25:00

Ten seconds, one life.

0:25:020:25:05

No, that's it.

0:25:050:25:07

But you found two groups,

0:25:070:25:08

and I'll give you more points for the connections.

0:25:080:25:10

Tell me about the first group - Post, Hunting, French, Fog.

0:25:100:25:14

-Horns.

-They can be followed by a horn.

0:25:140:25:16

And the green group starting Kintyre...

0:25:160:25:19

-They're like peninsulas.

-They are peninsulas, or peninsuli.

0:25:190:25:23

You didn't know Ards, Northern Irish peninsula.

0:25:230:25:25

You can still get points for the connections

0:25:250:25:27

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

0:25:270:25:30

Manchester, Victoria, Kuala Lumpur, Hamilton.

0:25:300:25:33

They've all hosted the Commonwealth Games?

0:25:330:25:35

They are host cities for the Commonwealth Games, very well done.

0:25:350:25:39

And the last group - Glasgow, Lizard, Eskimo, Butterfly...

0:25:390:25:43

-They're kinds of kisses.

-Those are the kisses.

0:25:430:25:45

You'd never put "Eskimo" and "Lizard" in the same group,

0:25:450:25:48

but you found two groups, and four connections. That is a total of six.

0:25:480:25:52

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

0:25:520:25:55

The Dandies have nine points, the Escapologists have 12.

0:25:560:26:00

We are going to play Round Four, the Missing Vowels Round.

0:26:020:26:06

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:26:060:26:08

The first group are all...

0:26:080:26:10

-Dandies.

-Epiphany?

0:26:140:26:16

Correct.

0:26:160:26:17

-Escapologists.

-Burns Night.

0:26:190:26:21

Correct.

0:26:210:26:22

-Escapologists?

-Australia Day.

-Yes, it is.

0:26:240:26:26

-Dandies?

-State of the Union Address.

0:26:310:26:34

Well done.

0:26:340:26:35

Next category...

0:26:350:26:36

-Dandies?

-Marty McFly and electric guitar.

0:26:420:26:44

Correct.

0:26:440:26:45

-Sherlock Holmes and violin.

0:26:480:26:50

Correct.

0:26:500:26:51

-Dandies?

-Schroder and piano.

0:26:550:26:56

Correct.

0:26:560:26:58

Escapologists?

0:27:000:27:01

Kermit the Frog and banjo.

0:27:010:27:02

Yes, it is. Next category - they're all...

0:27:020:27:04

-Dandies? ALL:

-Hallelujah.

0:27:080:27:10

Correct.

0:27:100:27:12

-Dandies? ALL:

-Encore.

0:27:130:27:14

Correct.

0:27:140:27:16

-Dandies. ALL:

-Amen.

0:27:170:27:19

Nice crowd chanting.

0:27:190:27:20

-Escapologists?

-Hip hip hooray.

0:27:220:27:24

Yes, it is. The next category...

0:27:240:27:26

-Dandies. ALL:

-Buildings and contents.

0:27:290:27:31

Correct.

0:27:310:27:32

-Escapologists.

-Public liability.

0:27:340:27:37

Correct.

0:27:370:27:39

-Escapologists?

-Professional indemnity.

0:27:400:27:44

Professional indemnity is the right answer.

0:27:460:27:49

Oh, my goodness, what a Round Four! That was so close!

0:27:490:27:52

Brilliant quizzing on both sides.

0:27:520:27:55

And I can tell you that the winners,

0:27:550:27:56

and still in the competition with 19 points, are the Escapologists!
