Good evening, and if you would like an extra challenge to

0:00:210:00:24

think about during tonight's show, let me put before you

0:00:240:00:26

what they say is the hardest logic problem of all time.

0:00:260:00:29

Have you ever heard it? It's a version of that one about the two Romans.

0:00:290:00:32

We're on an island with three natives.

0:00:320:00:35

One always lies, one always tells the truth,

0:00:350:00:38

one lies and tells the truth at random.

0:00:380:00:40

They can only say "Ya" and "Da" - one means yes, one means no

0:00:400:00:44

and you don't know which.

0:00:440:00:46

The question is,

0:00:460:00:47

why didn't we just go to Italy like last year?

0:00:470:00:50

Pondering similarly baffling questions tonight are...

0:00:510:00:54

On my right, Jonathan Kershaw,

0:00:540:00:57

a Green Party volunteer who recently joined the Campaign for Real Ale

0:00:570:01:00

after a 30-year decision-making process.

0:01:000:01:04

Peter Barlow,

0:01:040:01:05

a keen hill walker who saw a shadowy spectre on a misty mountainside

0:01:050:01:10

and their captain Brett Bostock,

0:01:100:01:12

a retired mental health manager who once caused a bomb scare that

0:01:120:01:15

resulted in the evacuation of an entire factory.

0:01:150:01:18

United by a passion for the planet,

0:01:180:01:20

they are the Eco-Warriors.

0:01:200:01:22

Now, on your journey so far, you've beaten the Escapologists

0:01:220:01:25

and the Snake Charmers to get to the third round.

0:01:250:01:27

How have you prepared for the next stage?

0:01:270:01:30

Well, I suggested we dedicate ourselves to fasting

0:01:300:01:33

and meditation and was outvoted,

0:01:330:01:36

so it was Cardiff,

0:01:360:01:38

frivolity and beer.

0:01:380:01:39

Excellent!

0:01:390:01:41

I thought I heard something in the back of the dressing room.

0:01:410:01:43

You are playing this evening on my left...

0:01:430:01:46

Luke Kelly, a travel enthusiast

0:01:460:01:48

who's counted every single barrel

0:01:480:01:49

of Guinness in the Guinness Brewery at Park Royal.

0:01:490:01:53

Rob Cumming, a rabbit lover

0:01:530:01:54

who's lost both front teeth,

0:01:540:01:56

broken his collarbone and knocked

0:01:560:01:58

himself out while trampolining.

0:01:580:02:00

And their captain,

0:02:000:02:01

Julia Hobbs - a marketing graduate

0:02:010:02:03

who can do the splits.

0:02:030:02:04

All professional question-setters,

0:02:040:02:06

they are the Inquisitors.

0:02:060:02:07

Now, on your way here, you beat the Cricketers,

0:02:070:02:10

but you lost to the Wanderers

0:02:100:02:11

then you won again against the Snake Charmers and the Meeples.

0:02:110:02:14

How have you been relaxing between games?

0:02:140:02:17

Um, mainly eating steak

0:02:170:02:18

and drinking wine.

0:02:180:02:20

These are my kind of teams.

0:02:200:02:21

Now, you won the toss,

0:02:210:02:23

Eco-Warriors, so you'll be going first.

0:02:230:02:25

Please choose

0:02:250:02:26

an Egyptian hieroglyph.

0:02:260:02:27

Horned Viper, please.

0:02:270:02:28

Horned Viper will be the first

0:02:280:02:30

question of the third round

0:02:300:02:31

or the quarterfinals. Are they quarterfinals? No-one knows.

0:02:310:02:34

I'm sure we'll debate it later.

0:02:340:02:36

Your first clue is coming in now.

0:02:360:02:38

Boring Ted.

0:02:400:02:42

THEY CONFER

0:02:420:02:45

Shall we have another?

0:02:450:02:46

-I think so.

-Next, please.

0:02:460:02:48

Violent Vic.

0:02:500:02:53

-Hm.

-No, I'm still none the wiser.

0:02:530:02:55

-No, I don't know.

-Next one?

0:02:550:02:58

Next, please.

0:02:590:03:01

Devout P. Hm.

0:03:030:03:04

I think we'll need them all.

0:03:060:03:08

-I think we will!

-Next, please.

0:03:080:03:11

Two seconds. GONG

0:03:150:03:17

Is the connection...

0:03:210:03:23

that...

0:03:230:03:24

they all refer...

0:03:240:03:26

No, it is too long.

0:03:260:03:29

I don't think you know the answer.

0:03:290:03:31

Over to you, Inquisitors,

0:03:310:03:32

for a possible bonus point.

0:03:320:03:33

Are they nicknames of bishops

0:03:330:03:35

or archbishops?

0:03:350:03:37

No... I mean, they might be!

0:03:380:03:40

But not officially, no.

0:03:400:03:42

Add "ious" for adjectives.

0:03:430:03:46

Boring, tedious.

0:03:460:03:48

Violent, vicious.

0:03:480:03:49

Devout, pious.

0:03:490:03:51

Repulsive, odious.

0:03:510:03:53

Adjectives ending "ious" and we've

0:03:530:03:55

whipped off those last letters

0:03:550:03:57

and puts a synonym before.

0:03:570:03:59

Nobody spotted that one. Your head

0:03:590:04:00

too full of archbishops, clearly!

0:04:000:04:02

So no bonus point, Inquisitors,

0:04:020:04:04

but what would you like

0:04:040:04:05

-for your own question?

-Lion, please.

0:04:050:04:07

Lion, OK. It's the music question.

0:04:070:04:08

You'll be hearing your clues.

0:04:080:04:10

What do they have in common?

0:04:100:04:11

Here's the first.

0:04:110:04:12

# A poet reads his crooked rhyme

0:04:120:04:16

# Holy, holy... #

0:04:170:04:20

Next, please.

0:04:200:04:21

JAZZ BAND PLAYS

0:04:210:04:24

THEY CONFER

0:04:240:04:25

Next, please.

0:04:300:04:31

# You got a lot of nerve

0:04:310:04:34

# To say you are my friend... #

0:04:340:04:37

God. Next again?

0:04:370:04:39

Next, please.

0:04:390:04:41

# I was the third brother of five

0:04:410:04:43

# Doing whatever I had to do to... #

0:04:430:04:45

BELL

0:04:450:04:47

Streets.

0:04:470:04:48

I need to hear something specific.

0:04:480:04:50

Numbered streets, got 42nd Street

0:04:500:04:52

in there, and 110th Street.

0:04:520:04:54

I'm afraid that's not it,

0:04:540:04:55

so over to you, Eco-Warriors,

0:04:550:04:57

for a possible bonus.

0:04:570:04:58

They all have titles in the street,

0:04:580:05:00

like Positively Fourth Street

0:05:000:05:02

and 42nd Street

0:05:020:05:04

and refer to New York streets.

0:05:040:05:06

OK. Now, Brett, love you

0:05:060:05:08

though I do, you must be careful

0:05:080:05:10

later in the round to get to the

0:05:100:05:11

answer a bit quicker than that,

0:05:110:05:12

rather than talk your way there,

0:05:120:05:14

but I will accept it.

0:05:140:05:15

New York streets.

0:05:150:05:16

Yes, at this stage, we need

0:05:160:05:17

something very specific.

0:05:170:05:19

42nd Street, Positively 4th Street,

0:05:190:05:20

110th Street. The first one was

0:05:200:05:22

Bleecker Street, no number there.

0:05:220:05:24

Nevertheless, one bonus point.

0:05:240:05:25

What would you like as a question?

0:05:250:05:27

-Twisted Flax, please.

-Twisted Flax.

0:05:270:05:28

OK, what is the connection between

0:05:280:05:30

these clues? Here's the first.

0:05:300:05:32

I'm not sure who the architect was.

0:05:370:05:39

-No.

-Shall we have another?

0:05:390:05:41

-Yes.

-Next, please.

0:05:410:05:43

-Oh!

-Wow.

0:05:460:05:48

Is he the guy who had it detached

0:05:480:05:50

and then reconnected?

0:05:500:05:52

No idea. Want to try another one?

0:05:530:05:55

Next.

0:05:550:05:56

-Octagon.

-Octagon, isn't it?

0:05:570:05:59

Next, please.

0:06:020:06:04

-Yes.

-Octagonal.

0:06:050:06:07

GONG

0:06:070:06:08

They're all octagonal.

0:06:080:06:10

They're all octagons,

0:06:100:06:12

so I will give it to you.

0:06:120:06:13

Do you know what's going on

0:06:130:06:15

-at clue two?

-Oh, no idea!

0:06:150:06:16

This is not a real person

0:06:160:06:18

with an octagonal penis.

0:06:180:06:19

This is a character in Anchorman,

0:06:190:06:22

the Legend of Ron Burgundy.

0:06:220:06:24

A character played by the wonderful

0:06:240:06:25

Paul Rudd and he refers to his penis

0:06:250:06:28

as The Octagon. It's a nickname.

0:06:280:06:30

His testicles are called

0:06:300:06:32

James Westfall

0:06:320:06:33

and Dr Kenneth Noisewater.

0:06:330:06:35

He says if you play your cards

0:06:350:06:37

right, you might get to meet

0:06:370:06:38

the whole gang.

0:06:380:06:39

All octagons, very well done.

0:06:390:06:41

Inquisitors, what would you like?

0:06:410:06:43

Eye of Horus , please.

0:06:430:06:44

The Eye of Horus. What is the

0:06:440:06:45

connection between these clues?

0:06:450:06:47

Here's the first.

0:06:470:06:48

Farewell, adieu.

0:06:500:06:52

Next, please.

0:06:520:06:53

Superstitions?

0:06:580:07:00

Next, please.

0:07:020:07:04

But these are not things that are

0:07:070:07:09

considered unlucky?

0:07:090:07:10

Next, please.

0:07:120:07:14

This must be superstitions

0:07:200:07:21

in boxing or something.

0:07:210:07:23

THEY CONFER

0:07:230:07:26

Things that you shouldn't do.

0:07:270:07:29

Things that you shouldn't do.

0:07:290:07:30

I'm afraid I need to hear something specific.

0:07:300:07:32

I will give you another go.

0:07:320:07:33

Are they boxing superstitions?

0:07:330:07:35

I'm afraid they are not.

0:07:350:07:37

So Eco-Warriors, another bonus

0:07:370:07:38

chance for you.

0:07:380:07:39

Are they all deemed to be bad luck?

0:07:390:07:41

They are, but I need to hear

0:07:410:07:43

something specific.

0:07:430:07:44

I can see why you said boxing.

0:07:440:07:46

Different sort of tent.

0:07:460:07:47

-In the circus.

-Unlucky

0:07:470:07:49

in the circus. That's what it is.

0:07:490:07:51

Circus folk don't say goodbye,

0:07:510:07:52

they say, "See you down the road."

0:07:520:07:54

Apart from Nelly the elephant, I suppose. She said goodbye

0:07:540:07:56

to the circus. But then maybe she came to a bad end? We don't know.

0:07:560:07:58

Stepping into the ring, not the boxing ring,

0:07:580:08:00

sitting with your back to the ring, the circus ring.

0:08:000:08:03

So no bonus point that time,

0:08:030:08:04

Eco-Warriors. What would you like?

0:08:040:08:06

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds. OK.

0:08:060:08:08

What's the connection between these

0:08:080:08:09

clues? Here's the first.

0:08:090:08:11

THEY CONFER

0:08:130:08:16

Next, please.

0:08:170:08:19

-Ah.

-He's German?

-Well, yes. Um...

0:08:210:08:24

Did he have some particular role in...

0:08:260:08:28

I can't remember.

0:08:280:08:31

We'll have another, shall we?

0:08:310:08:33

-I think so, yeah.

-Next, please.

0:08:330:08:36

Ooh.

0:08:380:08:40

THEY CONFER

0:08:410:08:43

Next, please.

0:08:430:08:45

Two seconds. BELL

0:08:480:08:50

Right.

0:08:500:08:51

Were they all the

0:08:520:08:54

14th of their order?

0:08:540:08:56

Including Louis XIX?!

0:08:560:08:58

Yes.

0:08:580:08:59

I'm afraid they were not!

0:08:590:09:01

Inquisitors, do you want

0:09:010:09:03

-to have a go?

-Last Germans

0:09:030:09:04

to hold those positions?

0:09:040:09:06

No, they weren't, and they're

0:09:060:09:08

certainly not all German. Nope.

0:09:080:09:10

They had those roles in brackets

0:09:100:09:12

for one day.

0:09:120:09:14

Felipe DeAlba was married to Zsa Zsa

0:09:140:09:15

Gabor for one day then she said,

0:09:150:09:17

"He bored me. He's a playboy

0:09:170:09:18

"and I'm a hard-working actress".

0:09:180:09:20

Dietmar Hamann - he moved to Bolton

0:09:200:09:22

from Liverpool on a free transfer

0:09:220:09:23

and was sold for £400,000.

0:09:230:09:26

After one day,

0:09:260:09:27

Goebbels of course made

0:09:270:09:29

German Chancellor,

0:09:290:09:30

but then they all died the next day.

0:09:300:09:32

And Louis XIX, King of France,

0:09:320:09:33

he succeeded his father Charles X,

0:09:330:09:35

but he abdicated 20 minutes later

0:09:350:09:37

in favour of his nephew.

0:09:370:09:38

They all lasted one day.

0:09:380:09:40

Last question of the round.

0:09:400:09:42

That's for you, Inquisitors.

0:09:420:09:43

It's the Water question. I expect

0:09:430:09:45

these will be picture clues.

0:09:450:09:46

What do they have in common?

0:09:460:09:47

Here's the first.

0:09:470:09:49

Don't know who that is.

0:09:500:09:51

Next, please.

0:09:510:09:52

Denis Norden. All Right

0:09:540:09:56

On The Night, he's in his 90s.

0:09:560:09:58

Next, please.

0:09:590:10:01

That looks like Murray Walker.

0:10:020:10:04

Next, please.

0:10:060:10:07

David Baddiel.

0:10:080:10:10

THEY CONFER

0:10:140:10:17

All Right On The Night, what've we

0:10:190:10:21

-got?

-Three seconds. BELL

0:10:210:10:23

-Anything?

-No.

-Um...

0:10:230:10:26

Laughter. That's not...

0:10:260:10:28

Laughter.

0:10:280:10:29

A reasonable guess, but I can't

0:10:290:10:31

accept it, I'm afraid, so a bonus

0:10:310:10:32

chance for you, Eco-Warriors.

0:10:320:10:34

Do they all...

0:10:340:10:35

champion some kind of mental illness

0:10:350:10:38

programmes to help...

0:10:380:10:40

resettle...

0:10:400:10:42

I mean, it would be magnificent if

0:10:420:10:43

that fellow in the first clue had

0:10:430:10:45

the foresight to do that as long ago as he lived, but no.

0:10:450:10:47

Now, I think this is a really

0:10:470:10:49

beautiful question.

0:10:490:10:50

It's extremely difficult.

0:10:500:10:52

You were looking at Jesse James,

0:10:520:10:54

Denis Norden, Harry Carpenter

0:10:540:10:56

and David Baddiel.

0:10:560:10:58

All famously involved in duos

0:10:580:11:00

with Franks.

0:11:000:11:02

David Baddiel and Frank Skinner had

0:11:020:11:04

a double act, Harry Carpenter and

0:11:040:11:05

Frank Bruno of course worked

0:11:050:11:07

together all the time.

0:11:070:11:08

Denis Norden and Frank Muir

0:11:080:11:10

and Jesse James

0:11:100:11:11

and his older brother Frank.

0:11:110:11:13

They were in partnership with Franks.

0:11:130:11:15

That means at the end of Round One,

0:11:150:11:17

the Inquisitors have yet to score.

0:11:170:11:19

The Eco-Warriors have two.

0:11:190:11:21

On we go to Round Two, the sequences round, and Eco-Warriors,

0:11:230:11:26

you'll be going first again.

0:11:260:11:27

This time, your clues will come

0:11:270:11:29

sequentially. I want to know,

0:11:290:11:30

can you complete the sequence

0:11:300:11:31

with the fourth clue?

0:11:310:11:32

Which hieroglyph would you like?

0:11:320:11:34

-Lion, please.

-Lion.

0:11:340:11:35

You'll be seeing the first in a

0:11:350:11:36

sequence. What comes fourth?

0:11:360:11:38

The time starts now.

0:11:380:11:39

Right...

0:11:430:11:45

THEY CONFER

0:11:450:11:49

-Try another?

-I think so.

0:11:490:11:50

Next, please.

0:11:500:11:51

Oh...

0:11:530:11:55

THEY CONFER

0:11:560:11:58

-I think...

-Right. Next.

0:12:030:12:05

-Six figures.

-He rode seven.

0:12:070:12:09

THEY CONFER

0:12:090:12:13

Two seconds. BELL

0:12:170:12:19

We are going for the winners of the

0:12:190:12:23

FA Cup who would have played eight

0:12:230:12:25

-rounds to get there.

-I think that's

0:12:250:12:27

an acceptable answer.

0:12:270:12:29

I will take it. I think you've

0:12:290:12:30

solved that puzzle.

0:12:300:12:31

What is the sequence?

0:12:310:12:33

Er, Jermain Defoe scored five goals

0:12:330:12:36

on that day.

0:12:360:12:38

Garfield Sobers

0:12:380:12:40

-famously hit six sixes...

-Mm-hm.

0:12:400:12:42

Frankie Dettori's Magnificent Seven

0:12:420:12:43

at Ascot.

0:12:430:12:45

He rode seven winners at Ascot,

0:12:450:12:46

that's right. And so we needed to

0:12:460:12:48

hear a team or a person that had

0:12:480:12:50

done something eight times,

0:12:500:12:51

eight victories. We went with

0:12:510:12:52

Michael Phelps who won eight gold

0:12:520:12:54

medals at the 2008 Olympics, but

0:12:540:12:55

any team who won eight matches...

0:12:550:12:57

That would count in that sequence,

0:12:570:12:59

so well done.

0:12:590:13:01

Over to you, Inquisitors, for a

0:13:010:13:02

-choice.

-Twisted Flax, please.

0:13:020:13:04

The Twisted Flax. What would come

0:13:040:13:05

fourth in this picture sequence?

0:13:050:13:07

Here's the first.

0:13:070:13:08

That's Easter Island.

0:13:100:13:11

Moai.

0:13:110:13:13

Next, please.

0:13:150:13:17

THEY CONFER

0:13:190:13:21

Next, please.

0:13:270:13:28

So just M.

0:13:290:13:30

Judi Dench, as M?

0:13:300:13:32

Exactly what we featured ourselves.

0:13:320:13:37

And what's the sequence?

0:13:370:13:38

It's M, Mo,

0:13:380:13:40

Moa, and Moai.

0:13:400:13:43

That's right, the Easter Island

0:13:430:13:44

heads, the Moai.

0:13:440:13:46

We had a match earlier in this

0:13:460:13:47

series where the answer was

0:13:470:13:49

a picture of Judi Dench as M,

0:13:490:13:51

and M is the 13th letter of the alphabet - spooky!

0:13:510:13:54

A coincidence?

0:13:540:13:56

-I think not.

-Not a coincidence,

0:13:560:13:58

we've simply run out of pictures

0:13:580:14:00

and Mr Waley-Cohen has a bit of a

0:14:000:14:01

thing for Judi Dench as M,

0:14:010:14:02

so we'll just draw a veil

0:14:020:14:04

over that one.

0:14:040:14:05

Eco-Warriors, what would you like?

0:14:050:14:07

-Water, please.

-Water, OK.

0:14:070:14:08

And what will come fourth in this

0:14:080:14:10

sequence? Here's the first.

0:14:100:14:11

THEY CONFER

0:14:130:14:16

Next, please.

0:14:180:14:19

That's an old currency that gave its name to the dollar, I think.

0:14:220:14:26

-Right.

-We'll have to go to one of

0:14:260:14:28

the others. Next, please.

0:14:280:14:30

That's Greek.

0:14:320:14:33

Um...

0:14:350:14:37

-Yeah, I think it must be.

-Is it?

0:14:370:14:39

THEY CONFER

0:14:390:14:42

BELL

0:14:470:14:49

We're going for the Lira.

0:14:490:14:50

And that's the right answer. Why?

0:14:500:14:52

We think they are currencies that

0:14:540:14:56

went into the Euro

0:14:560:14:57

that had the highest denomination notes.

0:14:570:15:00

It's not quite the denomination

0:15:000:15:01

notes, it's the number of them

0:15:010:15:02

you'd need to buy a euro.

0:15:020:15:04

They're the weakest currencies.

0:15:040:15:05

So you need about 200 of the

0:15:050:15:07

Portuguese Escudo for a euro.

0:15:070:15:09

The Tolar, Slovenia, 239.

0:15:090:15:10

340 Drachma and how many lira would

0:15:100:15:12

you have needed for one euro

0:15:120:15:14

when it joined?

0:15:140:15:16

-2,500?

-About 3,000.

-It was 1,930,

0:15:160:15:19

or 1,940, that kind of thing.

0:15:190:15:21

Huge amounts of lire. That was the

0:15:210:15:23

weakest currency to join the euro.

0:15:230:15:25

Well done. Inquisitors, what would

0:15:250:15:27

-you like?

-Eye of Horus, please.

0:15:270:15:29

The Eye of Horus. What would come

0:15:290:15:31

fourth in this sequence?

0:15:310:15:32

Here's the first.

0:15:320:15:33

Next, please.

0:15:360:15:38

Sank into the swamp.

0:15:380:15:40

-Is that a rhyme?

-I don't know.

0:15:400:15:42

Next, please.

0:15:440:15:45

So, these are things...

0:15:490:15:51

Things happened to buildings

0:15:540:15:56

or ships, or...

0:15:560:15:57

Things that happened to...?

0:15:590:16:01

I don't know.

0:16:010:16:03

It has to be ships, doesn't it?

0:16:030:16:05

Yes, so what do we say?

0:16:050:16:07

THEY CONFER

0:16:070:16:09

Two seconds. BELL

0:16:100:16:12

Risen up from the seabed?

0:16:130:16:15

Not it, I'm afraid.

0:16:150:16:17

Eco-Warriors, do you know?

0:16:170:16:19

That one stayed up and that's what

0:16:190:16:21

you'll inherit, my lad,

0:16:210:16:22

the strongest castle in these isles.

0:16:220:16:24

That is exactly right.

0:16:240:16:25

What is the sequence?

0:16:250:16:26

That's the Swamp Castle from

0:16:260:16:28

Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

0:16:280:16:30

It's the King of Swamp Castle, yes.

0:16:300:16:31

It's Michael Palin talking to Terry

0:16:310:16:33

Jones about the castles he built.

0:16:330:16:34

The fourth one stayed up.

0:16:340:16:36

Very well done.

0:16:360:16:37

When I first saw the sequence,

0:16:370:16:38

it brought back memories of my hen night.

0:16:380:16:40

But no, a Monty Python sequence -

0:16:400:16:41

well done for the bonus.

0:16:410:16:43

And what would you like for your own

0:16:430:16:44

-question?

-Two Reeds, please.

0:16:440:16:46

The Two Reeds. OK, what will come

0:16:460:16:47

fourth? Here's the first clue.

0:16:470:16:49

David Cameron?

Two seconds. BELL

0:17:260:17:28

We're going for something with T...

0:17:300:17:32

-It's TM...

-TM con.

0:17:320:17:34

I mean, you've got the right answer,

0:17:340:17:36

but can you not think of anything

0:17:360:17:37

that'd be abbreviated to TM?

0:17:370:17:39

-Theresa May.

-Yes, but...!

-OK!

0:17:390:17:40

Talk me through the sequence.

0:17:400:17:42

Tuberculosis shortened to TB

0:17:420:17:45

-would be Tony Blair.

-Mm-hm.

-Labour.

GB, Gordon Brown, Labour.

DC, David Cameron...

0:17:500:17:53

-Mm-hm.

-Labour.

0:17:530:17:55

Conservative!

0:17:550:17:56

And who was followed by

0:17:560:17:58

Theresa May...

0:17:580:18:00

So something like trademark?

0:18:000:18:02

Transcendental meditation, it could have been,

0:18:020:18:04

but, yes, we're going through

0:18:040:18:06

the initials of prime ministers

0:18:060:18:08

and the trick there is not lab,

0:18:080:18:09

it's Labour. Inquisitors,

0:18:090:18:10

-what would you like?

-Horned Viper,

0:18:100:18:12

-The Horned Viper.

OK, what will come fourth in this

0:18:130:18:15

No, I don't think so.

Two seconds. BELL

0:18:530:18:55

English poetry.

0:18:580:19:01

I wish that was the answer,

0:19:010:19:03

but it isn't the answer.

0:19:030:19:05

Eco-Warriors, want to have a go?

0:19:050:19:06

We're going to try British novels.

0:19:060:19:08

I mean, I wish that was the answer

0:19:080:19:10

as well, but it isn't.

0:19:100:19:11

It's the Nobel Prize for Literature.

0:19:110:19:13

In 2013, they gave it to

0:19:130:19:14

Alice Munro, a Canadian who wrote

0:19:140:19:16

short stories. In 2014,

0:19:160:19:17

Patrick Modiano, French novels.

0:19:170:19:19

In 2015, Svetlana Alexievich,

0:19:190:19:21

Belarusian journalism

0:19:210:19:22

and then went to Bob Dylan,

0:19:220:19:24

an American who wrote songs.

0:19:240:19:26

If only it had been British novels.

0:19:260:19:29

That means at the end of Round Two,

0:19:290:19:32

the Inquisitors have two points,

0:19:320:19:34

the Eco-Warriors have nine.

0:19:340:19:35

Now it's time, of course, for the Connecting Wall and Inquisitors,

0:19:370:19:40

it'll be your turn to go first. So please choose Lion or Water.

0:19:400:19:43

Lion, please.

0:19:430:19:45

OK, you have 2½ minutes to solve

0:19:450:19:47

the Lion wall, starting now.

0:19:470:19:49

OK, um...

0:19:500:19:52

Canton, Department.

0:19:540:19:56

Riding...

0:19:560:19:57

-And... Field?

-State?

0:19:570:19:59

-BUZZ

-Nope.

0:20:000:20:01

-Field?

-BUZZ

0:20:020:20:04

-Hundred is one of those as well.

-Yes!

0:20:060:20:09

-BUZZ

-No.

0:20:090:20:10

Hoist, Fly is parts of a flag. And

0:20:130:20:15

so is Canton. Hoist, Fly...

0:20:150:20:19

-Hoist, fly...

-and field.

0:20:190:20:21

Field?

0:20:210:20:23

Three lives now.

0:20:230:20:24

What else have we got now?

0:20:240:20:25

MI6 chief, what are they called?

0:20:250:20:27

All known by a single letter?

0:20:290:20:31

Carbon, Cuba...

0:20:310:20:32

All known by the letter C?

0:20:320:20:34

So...?

0:20:340:20:36

What else is there, though?

0:20:370:20:39

THEY CONFER

0:20:390:20:41

I'm not sure about those.

0:20:530:20:55

THEY CONFER

0:20:550:20:59

I don't know.

0:20:590:21:00

We're going to have to just start putting things in.

0:21:000:21:03

If we've got Cs, what could a C be?

0:21:080:21:11

Are they all...

0:21:130:21:14

They all feel like word ones.

0:21:140:21:16

-Shall we just try it?

-Yes.

0:21:180:21:20

There you go, you solved the wall.

0:21:200:21:21

Let's look for the connections.

0:21:210:21:23

First blue group, State, Department,

0:21:230:21:25

Hundred, Riding.

0:21:250:21:26

They're all administrative divisions of places, towns,

0:21:260:21:29

-cities, that sort of thing.

-That's exactly what they are.

0:21:290:21:33

Administrative subdivisions of countries.

0:21:330:21:35

The green group - Field, Canton, Hoist, Fly.

0:21:350:21:38

-They're all connected with flags.

-All parts of a flag.

0:21:380:21:41

And the next...dark pink group,

0:21:420:21:44

Work, Power, Place, Wall.

0:21:440:21:46

Place, power...

0:21:460:21:47

Hm, I don't know.

0:21:490:21:51

No, too long. It is the word one.

0:21:510:21:53

And the answer is fire.

0:21:530:21:55

Firework, firepower,

0:21:550:21:57

fireplace, firewall.

0:21:570:21:59

And the turquoise group - 12, Cuba,

0:21:590:22:01

Carbon, MI6 Chief.

0:22:010:22:03

-All represented by the C, single C?

-Yes, they are.

0:22:030:22:06

-12 is C in hexadecimal.

-Ah!

0:22:060:22:09

So that is four groups

0:22:090:22:11

and three connections -

0:22:110:22:13

a total of seven points.

0:22:130:22:14

Let's bring in the other team now, give them the Water wall and see

0:22:140:22:18

how they get on with it. Up to you now, Eco-Warriors.

0:22:180:22:20

2½ minutes and that time starts now.

0:22:200:22:24

Right. Is that...

0:22:260:22:28

A golf...club?

0:22:280:22:31

A golf club.

0:22:320:22:34

-Can't see any more golf clubs.

-Speelman?

0:22:350:22:38

-Golf term? And Short?

-Could be.

0:22:380:22:40

-Nope.

-Not that one.

0:22:400:22:43

-Right...

-Nunn. Ger...

-Put an E on the surname.

0:23:090:23:12

-Could be.

-Um...

0:23:140:23:16

Gere.

0:23:160:23:18

And Nunne?

0:23:200:23:22

Not having it. Rich?

0:23:220:23:24

Yes!

0:23:260:23:28

Right, Pert, Short...

0:23:290:23:31

Fresh.

0:23:330:23:34

Smart? Nope.

0:23:350:23:37

Could be a brassy blonde.

0:23:370:23:39

You can be...

0:23:390:23:41

No, it's not coming.

0:23:410:23:43

No, it doesn't work.

0:23:440:23:46

-Is that a manoeuvring...?

-THEY CONFER

Time's going down. Um...

0:24:030:24:06

No, it's not having it.

Fresher, smarter, shorter...

0:24:160:24:18

BELL

0:24:280:24:30

That's it, the time is up and the wall has frozen.

0:24:300:24:32

Well, you found one group - can you tell me the connection?

0:24:320:24:35

We think if you add Es on the end,

0:24:350:24:36

you get the names of directors, producers.

0:24:360:24:39

I'm afraid that's absolutely not true.

0:24:390:24:42

And what's amazing is that you found that group and that's not it.

0:24:420:24:44

It's "ard" to make a name.

0:24:440:24:47

Howard, Richard, Bernard, Gerard.

0:24:470:24:50

-It's that!

-Right.

-Hm!

0:24:500:24:52

But you can still get points for

0:24:520:24:53

the connections in the groups

0:24:530:24:55

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

0:24:550:24:57

Short, Waiting, Bucket, Laundry.

0:24:570:24:59

-List?

-It's list. Short list, waiting list,

0:24:590:25:02

bucket list, laundry list.

0:25:020:25:04

And the next group.

0:25:040:25:05

Pert, Conquest, Speelman, Nunn.

0:25:050:25:08

-Can you put Normans in front of them?

-No!

0:25:080:25:11

You see, it's Stuart Conquest. I thought this would be got quickly

0:25:110:25:14

and I was wrong.

0:25:140:25:15

They're chess grandmasters.

0:25:150:25:18

-Ah!

-Great chess players.

0:25:180:25:19

Speelman, yeah.

0:25:190:25:21

And the next group - Brassy, Smart, Fresh, Forward.

0:25:210:25:24

They're all terms applied to women...

0:25:240:25:26

Well, not necessarily women, but people...

0:25:280:25:31

Sort of overconfident...

0:25:310:25:33

That's right.

0:25:330:25:35

Yes, named after people that are cheeky, so you get a point for that.

0:25:350:25:39

I deduct nine for saying it's women,

0:25:390:25:41

-so that's -8...

-Do we get them back

0:25:410:25:43

-because I contradicted him?!

-You just about do!

0:25:430:25:46

Snatched those points from the jaws of defeat, there.

0:25:460:25:49

But you found one group and you got two connections,

0:25:490:25:52

so that's a total of three.

0:25:520:25:53

Let's have a look at the overall scores.

0:25:530:25:55

The Inquisitors have nine points,

0:25:570:25:59

the Eco-Warriors have 12.

0:25:590:26:00

So everything to play for in Round Four, the Missing Vowels Round.

0:26:020:26:05

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:26:050:26:07

I can tell you that the first group are all difficult.

0:26:070:26:10

-Inquisitors.

-Complex.

0:26:140:26:16

Correct.

0:26:160:26:17

-Inquisitors.

-Rocket science.

0:26:190:26:20

Correct.

0:26:200:26:22

-Inquisitors.

-Nigh on impossible.

0:26:240:26:26

Yes, it is.

0:26:260:26:27

Don't know this one.

0:26:340:26:35

From the film In The Loop,

0:26:350:26:36

Difficult Difficult Lemon Difficult.

0:26:360:26:39

Next group are all easy.

0:26:390:26:40

-Warriors.

-Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

0:26:430:26:46

Correct.

0:26:460:26:47

-Inquisitors.

-Facile.

0:26:490:26:50

Correct.

0:26:500:26:52

Inquisitors.

0:26:530:26:55

Too long, I'm afraid, lose a point.

0:26:550:26:57

Eco-Warriors, do you know?

0:26:570:26:58

That's too long as well.

0:26:580:27:00

It's idiot proof. Next clue.

0:27:000:27:02

-Inquisitors.

-Bread and butter.

0:27:040:27:06

Correct. Next category,

0:27:060:27:08

love in song titles.

0:27:080:27:09

-Inquisitors.

-Love Is All Around.

0:27:120:27:14

Yes, it is.

0:27:140:27:15

-Eco-Warriors.

-Love Is A Battlefield.

0:27:170:27:19

Correct.

0:27:190:27:20

Inquisitors.

0:27:220:27:24

-Love Will Tear Us Apart.

-Correct.

0:27:240:27:26

-Inquisitors.

-Love Will

0:27:290:27:30

-Keep Us Together.

-Lovely!

0:27:300:27:32

Next category, departments in a law firm.

0:27:320:27:35

-Inquisitors.

-Employment.

0:27:360:27:38

JINGLE

0:27:380:27:40

Saying employment

0:27:420:27:43

just as the bell goes.

0:27:430:27:45

You do get a point, but that

0:27:450:27:46

is the end of the quiz.

0:27:460:27:47

And I can tell you that the winners,

0:27:470:27:49

with 17 points are

0:27:490:27:51

the Inquisitors!

0:27:510:27:53

In second place,

0:27:530:27:54

after that Missing Vowels Round,

0:27:540:27:55

it's the Eco-Warriors with 14.

0:27:550:27:57

But you're not out.

0:27:570:27:59

In a complicated new twist in Round Three,

0:27:590:28:01

or is it the quarterfinals,

0:28:010:28:03

nobody goes home. You're somewhere,

0:28:030:28:04

you're somewhere, different places, but still here.

0:28:040:28:06

I don't really understand.

0:28:060:28:08

I'm joking. Of course I understand!

0:28:080:28:10

The winners tonight are through to the next round.

0:28:100:28:12

The losers go on to play the winners of Manchester City

0:28:120:28:15

and Burnley at Turf Moor live tomorrow on Sky Sports 2.

0:28:150:28:19

Lose that and it's still not over

0:28:190:28:21

cos they could find one of five golden tickets hidden in Wonka bars.

0:28:210:28:24

Fail to do that and they can appeal

0:28:240:28:26

to the European Court of Human Rights.

0:28:260:28:29

Better get a move on with that, if you know what I mean. Goodbye!
