Hello. At the beginning of last week's show,

0:00:210:00:24

I talked about the hardest logic problem in the world,

0:00:240:00:26

and some viewers have been in touch to say I didn't get it completely

0:00:260:00:29

right. In the original version, which was devised

0:00:290:00:32

by the American philosopher and logician George Boolos,

0:00:320:00:35

it's not three natives on an island, it's three gods,

0:00:350:00:38

and one always tells the truth and one always lies,

0:00:380:00:41

and one tells the truth and lies at random,

0:00:410:00:42

they only say "ja" and "da" and you don't have a translation.

0:00:420:00:45

So, just to clarify after last week's error, that's the gist,

0:00:450:00:49

three unearthly creatures sit, answering questions,

0:00:490:00:52

and it's not clear who they are, why they are there,

0:00:520:00:55

or what they are on about.

0:00:550:00:56

Let's meet the teams.

0:00:570:00:58

On my right, John Payne,

0:01:000:01:02

a politics and economics student who befriended a pig on a recent trip to

0:01:020:01:05

Nicaragua.

0:01:050:01:07

Richard Arthur, a geography and

0:01:070:01:09

geology teacher who was once found

0:01:090:01:11

sleeping next to a bass speaker in a nightclub.

0:01:110:01:14

And their captain, Sanjoy Sen,

0:01:140:01:16

a chemical engineer who was led away for questioning at the Che Guevara

0:01:160:01:20

monument in Cuba.

0:01:200:01:22

United by a love of long walks,

0:01:220:01:23

they are the Wanderers.

0:01:230:01:25

Now, in your Only Connect history,

0:01:250:01:27

you've beaten the Pedagogues and the Inquisitors

0:01:270:01:29

to make it through to the third round.

0:01:290:01:31

What are your feelings about Only Connect so far?

0:01:310:01:34

Gone well so far - two wins out of two.

0:01:340:01:36

But in both games, we've been really hauled in

0:01:360:01:38

on the missing vowels round.

0:01:380:01:39

So, we've been practising that and generally pressing buttons

0:01:390:01:42

-as fast as we can.

-What a waste of time, it's been cancelled!

0:01:420:01:45

-Oh.

-It hasn't, we'll be playing it at the end.

0:01:450:01:48

You are facing tonight, on my left,

0:01:480:01:50

Mark Oxley,

0:01:500:01:51

a physiotherapist who works for the Toulouse Rugby League team,

0:01:510:01:54

though he has never visited Toulouse.

0:01:540:01:57

John Wilson, a retail assistant who

0:01:570:01:59

dresses up as Father Christmas every

0:01:590:02:01

year. And their captain, Mick Lee,

0:02:010:02:04

a chemical engineer who has 83 former housemates.

0:02:040:02:08

United by a love of longboats,

0:02:080:02:10

they are the Vikings.

0:02:100:02:11

Now, your team has beaten the Geocachers and the Parishioners

0:02:110:02:14

to get through. What advice have you given your team-mates

0:02:140:02:17

about the next stage?

0:02:170:02:18

Well, we've looked deeply at the whole performance,

0:02:180:02:21

and I think what we need to do is answer questions correctly.

0:02:210:02:24

Well, how can you do that unless I start asking them?

0:02:240:02:27

So, Wanderers, you won the toss,

0:02:270:02:29

but you've decided to put your opponents in first.

0:02:290:02:31

Spotlight on you, Vikings.

0:02:310:02:33

Which hieroglyph would you like?

0:02:330:02:35

-Horned Viper, please.

-The Horned Viper.

0:02:350:02:37

What is the connection between these apparently random

0:02:370:02:40

picture clues?

0:02:400:02:42

Here's the first.

0:02:420:02:43

Robert De Niro, but he's in character.

0:02:440:02:46

Is that from Goodfellas?

0:02:460:02:48

So, Jimmy. Next, please.

0:02:480:02:51

-That's Carlos, yeah.

-As Dracula.

-As Dracula.

0:02:510:02:56

So, Dracula and Jimmy...

0:02:560:02:58

Goodfellas...

0:02:590:03:00

It's going to have to be next. Yeah, next, please.

0:03:000:03:03

-That's John Kettley.

-John Kettley Is A Weatherman.

0:03:030:03:06

Oh, and Robert De Niro's Waiting, right.

0:03:060:03:09

Um, they all feature in the title of songs.

0:03:090:03:13

Coming in after three clues, you get two points.

0:03:130:03:15

You didn't need to see the last clue.

0:03:150:03:17

Talk me through what we're looking at.

0:03:170:03:18

OK, Bette Davis Eyes.

0:03:180:03:20

John Kettley Is A Weatherman, by...

0:03:200:03:22

Tribe of Toffs, was that?

0:03:220:03:23

-That's right, yes.

-Yeah, solid.

0:03:230:03:25

Oh, is that Bela Lugosi?

0:03:250:03:26

Bela Lugosi's Dead.

0:03:260:03:27

Yes, the Bauhaus song, Bela Lugosi's Dead.

0:03:270:03:29

And there he is as Dracula in 1956.

0:03:290:03:32

And Robert De Niro's Waiting.

0:03:320:03:34

-By...?

-Bananarama.

0:03:340:03:35

Bananarama, that's right, yes.

0:03:350:03:37

The Bette Davis Eyes,

0:03:370:03:38

originally Jackie DeShannon,

0:03:380:03:40

but the Kim Carnes cover

0:03:400:03:42

is better known.

0:03:420:03:43

Very well done, well spotted.

0:03:430:03:45

Over to you, Wanderers, for a question.

0:03:450:03:47

-Eye of Horus, please.

-The Eye of Horus.

0:03:470:03:49

MUSICAL NOTE Ah!

0:03:490:03:51

This is the music question.

0:03:510:03:52

What is the connection between these audible clues?

0:03:520:03:55

Here's the first.

0:03:550:03:56

GERMAN OPERATIC MUSIC

0:03:560:04:02

Yup, next.

0:04:020:04:04

ROMANTIC SONG IN FRENCH

0:04:040:04:07

Next.

0:04:130:04:14

WHIMSICAL SONG HUMMED

0:04:140:04:17

# But if I know you... #

0:04:210:04:24

Next.

0:04:240:04:26

# Some of them want to use you... #

0:04:260:04:28

Sweet Dreams.

0:04:310:04:32

Given that ALL my dreams are sweet,

0:04:320:04:34

I will accept that answer.

0:04:340:04:36

Talk me through what we heard.

0:04:360:04:38

I know we had Once Upon A Dream.

0:04:380:04:39

Yeah, Once Upon A Dream, from?

0:04:390:04:40

-Sleeping Beauty.

-Sleeping Beauty, yes.

0:04:400:04:42

What's that based on, do you know?

0:04:420:04:44

Um, that song was based on the Tchaikovsky...

0:04:440:04:46

Yeah, Tchaikovsky's ballet, that's absolutely right,

0:04:460:04:49

the 1959 film Sleeping Beauty,

0:04:490:04:51

Once Upon a Dream.

0:04:510:04:52

And then, Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This, Eurythmics.

0:04:520:04:55

Yes.

0:04:550:04:56

And we don't know the first two!

0:04:560:04:58

Apres Un Reve, Faure - that was the second one,

0:04:580:05:00

sung by Barbra Streisand.

0:05:000:05:01

The first one, Elsa's Dream

0:05:010:05:03

from Act One of Lohengrin by Richard Wagner.

0:05:030:05:06

Vikings, what would you like?

0:05:060:05:08

-Lion, please.

-Lion, OK.

0:05:080:05:10

What is the connection between these clues?

0:05:100:05:12

Here's the first.

0:05:120:05:13

These are children of...

0:05:160:05:18

Next, please.

0:05:210:05:22

No.

0:05:280:05:31

Next, please. Oh!

0:05:310:05:35

Right, so, are the bottom ones pets?

0:05:390:05:42

Charlotte's Web.

0:05:420:05:43

Charlotte's Web, yeah.

0:05:430:05:45

-It's Wilbur the Pig, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:05:450:05:48

I think we need next. Next, please.

0:05:480:05:51

Two seconds.

0:05:510:05:52

Oh, right, it's players within a play, is it?

0:05:520:05:55

Characters in plays within a play.

0:05:550:05:58

Not it, I'm afraid.

0:05:580:05:59

Wanderers, a possible bonus point.

0:05:590:06:00

-No, we're stuck.

-No.

-Don't know it?

-Haven't got this one, no.

0:06:000:06:03

If I ever get a guinea pig,

0:06:030:06:04

I am definitely calling it Lenin.

0:06:040:06:06

But that's not what it is. It's to do with plays.

0:06:060:06:09

Tom Stoppard plays.

0:06:090:06:10

These are all characters in Tom Stoppard. That last one,

0:06:100:06:13

of course, Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead,

0:06:130:06:15

that's where Tom Stoppard takes the two minor characters from Hamlet

0:06:150:06:18

and puts them into his title.

0:06:180:06:20

Septimus, Thomasina, Plautus the tortoise,

0:06:200:06:23

that's from Arcadia.

0:06:230:06:24

Arcadia, where academics are researching old things.

0:06:240:06:28

James Joyce, Tristan Tzara and Lenin...

0:06:280:06:31

Travesties.

0:06:310:06:32

Travesties, it's based on the idea that James Joyce,

0:06:320:06:36

Tristan Tzara and Lenin were all in Zurich at the same time,

0:06:360:06:38

and they all meet in that play.

0:06:380:06:40

And the first one, do you want to have a go?

0:06:400:06:42

The Tom Stoppard play I haven't mentioned yet?

0:06:420:06:44

-Jumpers?

-It's The Real Thing.

0:06:440:06:45

Huge Tom Stoppard fans here!

0:06:460:06:48

Perhaps we'll put on a production at the end of the show.

0:06:480:06:52

No points there, then,

0:06:520:06:53

but, Wanderers, you may have your own question.

0:06:530:06:55

-Water, please.

-Water.

0:06:550:06:56

OK, what is the connection between these clues?

0:06:560:06:59

Here's the first.

0:06:590:07:00

Next.

0:07:050:07:07

Is this to do with Asterix, or something?

0:07:100:07:13

Next, please.

0:07:140:07:16

French versions of nursery rhymes.

0:07:220:07:24

-Go with that?

-Yeah.

0:07:240:07:26

French versions of nursery rhymes.

0:07:270:07:30

I need to hear something specific in this quarterfinal.

0:07:300:07:34

The original was in French, and it's translated into English.

0:07:340:07:38

I'm afraid that's not it, so I'm going to show the last clue to the

0:07:380:07:41

Vikings for a possible bonus point.

0:07:410:07:42

It's transliterations, so, it's phonetically, um,

0:07:420:07:47

nursery rhymes written in French.

0:07:470:07:49

Cos the last one is "pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man."

0:07:490:07:52

That's what it is - they're not translations,

0:07:520:07:54

they are transliterations.

0:07:540:07:55

If you translate these into English, it would be gobbledygook,

0:07:550:07:58

it would be "a small of a small".

0:07:580:07:59

But if you say them out loud...

0:08:000:08:02

Un petit d'un petit - Humpty Dumpty.

0:08:020:08:06

Et qui rit des cures d'Oc...

0:08:060:08:08

THEY LAUGH

0:08:080:08:09

Lille beau pipe.

0:08:090:08:10

And pas de caique, pas de caique, becasse, mane.

0:08:100:08:14

It's just nonsensical French words

0:08:140:08:16

that sound like the titles.

0:08:160:08:18

Here's one for you. Which nursery

0:08:180:08:19

rhyme would translate as,

0:08:190:08:20

"Queen, Queen, arouse the rabble,

0:08:200:08:23

"who use their girdles, horror, as pillow slips"?

0:08:230:08:26

-Shall I translate it for you?

-Ring-a-ring of roses?

0:08:260:08:28

-No.

-No?

0:08:280:08:30

Reine, Reine, gueux eveille,

0:08:300:08:32

gomme a gaine, en horreur, taie.

0:08:320:08:34

Isn't that lovely?

0:08:350:08:36

So, a bonus point to you, Vikings,

0:08:360:08:38

-and what would you like?

-Two Reeds, please.

0:08:380:08:40

Two Reeds. OK, what is the connection between these clues?

0:08:400:08:43

Here's the first.

0:08:430:08:44

-A lot of...

-Yeah! That's done it. Next, please.

0:08:480:08:52

Oh, um...

0:08:550:08:57

I mean, did these all lead to fights in Parliament?

0:08:590:09:03

-It could have done.

-Like actual fistfights.

0:09:030:09:05

Let's go next. Next, please.

0:09:050:09:07

Oh, originally they voted no and then... That's it!

0:09:100:09:13

Originally, the referendum was a no, but then they ran the referendum

0:09:130:09:17

again, it was yes.

0:09:170:09:18

Nominate.

0:09:200:09:22

When they first held the referendum to see whether the Colombian

0:09:220:09:25

government should do a peace deal with FARC, it was voted down,

0:09:250:09:27

but then they had another referendum and it was accepted.

0:09:270:09:30

I'm afraid I can't accept that as an answer,

0:09:300:09:33

and let's have a look at the last clue.

0:09:330:09:35

Possible bonus point to you, Wanderers.

0:09:350:09:37

2016 referendums.

0:09:370:09:38

Yes. Now, I'm afraid you went too specific.

0:09:380:09:40

In your last question, you weren't specific enough.

0:09:400:09:42

That's too much, it doesn't apply to all the clues.

0:09:420:09:45

They simply were referendums.

0:09:450:09:46

Some might say referenda that were held in 2016.

0:09:460:09:49

If I had to sum up what this programme is,

0:09:490:09:51

the fact that we go from Humpty Dumpty

0:09:510:09:52

to Italian constitutional reform in about 20 seconds.

0:09:520:09:55

So you get the bonus point that time, Wanderers,

0:09:550:09:57

and you get the last question of the round, the Twisted Flax.

0:09:570:10:00

What is the connection between these clues?

0:10:000:10:02

Here's the first.

0:10:020:10:03

Odyle, Odyle...

0:10:060:10:09

Next.

0:10:090:10:10

Is it calorific, or something like that?

0:10:120:10:15

Uh, next.

0:10:190:10:20

These are all kind of fake scientific theories,

0:10:220:10:24

or something like that, that got debunked?

0:10:240:10:27

Go for it.

0:10:270:10:28

Are these sort of scientific theories that got debunked?

0:10:300:10:33

I'll accept that. Can you tell me anything else?

0:10:330:10:35

No. That's the only one I have, so, yeah.

0:10:360:10:39

These are the substances at the centre of scientific theories.

0:10:390:10:42

The last one, luminiferous aether,

0:10:420:10:44

that's an idea from the late 19th century

0:10:440:10:47

that light has to flow through something,

0:10:470:10:49

so there must be something in the air

0:10:490:10:51

that light can go through.

0:10:510:10:52

Do you know about any of the others?

0:10:520:10:54

-What's Odyle?

-It means nothing to me.

0:10:540:10:57

It's a sort of life force.

0:10:570:10:58

This was a scientific theory from

0:10:580:11:00

the 1840s that it causes electricity

0:11:000:11:02

somehow, a life force. Caloric was a

0:11:020:11:04

self-repelling fluid that explained

0:11:040:11:06

the flow of heat from hot objects to cold ones.

0:11:060:11:08

The third clue, do you know what that is?

0:11:080:11:10

That's when they didn't understand sort of combustion and oxygen,

0:11:100:11:13

when you burnt something, they thought it gained negative mass.

0:11:130:11:17

That's right, they thought that a substance flowed out of it,

0:11:170:11:19

when you burnt it, that it released a substance.

0:11:190:11:21

-Yeah.

-That's right. They are debunked scientific theories.

0:11:210:11:25

That means, at the end of round one,

0:11:250:11:26

the Vikings have three points,

0:11:260:11:28

the Wanderers have four.

0:11:280:11:29

And we flow like a fiery substance on to round two.

0:11:320:11:36

Vikings, you'll be going first again,

0:11:360:11:37

which hieroglyph would you like?

0:11:370:11:39

-The Eye of Horus.

-The Eye of Horus.

0:11:390:11:41

What might come fourth in the sequence?

0:11:410:11:43

Your time starts now.

0:11:430:11:45

Next, please.

0:11:520:11:53

THEY WHISPER

0:11:580:12:00

Oh!

0:12:000:12:03

Missed out the vowels.

0:12:030:12:04

-So it would be DLT.

-DLT.

0:12:040:12:07

-I think.

-Yeah.

-I think.

0:12:070:12:09

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:12:090:12:10

-DLT.

-Hasn't been an answer

0:12:100:12:12

on this quiz for so long,

0:12:120:12:14

but it is again now.

0:12:140:12:15

Coming in after two clues, you get three points.

0:12:150:12:17

Very well done. What is this?

0:12:170:12:19

This is the Greek alphabet, um, first four characters,

0:12:190:12:22

but with the vowels removed.

0:12:220:12:24

That's exactly right.

0:12:240:12:25

So, Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta.

0:12:250:12:27

We've taken out the vowels.

0:12:270:12:28

Wanderers, what would you like?

0:12:280:12:30

-Horned Viper, please.

-The snake for you.

0:12:300:12:32

What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:12:320:12:34

Here's the first.

0:12:340:12:35

Next.

0:12:410:12:42

Next.

0:12:490:12:51

So are these sort of stages of learning, or something like that?

0:12:530:12:56

It's going to be first something.

0:12:570:12:59

Philosophy or classics, or something.

0:13:040:13:06

It's worth a guess, isn't it?

0:13:060:13:08

-First and classics?

-Yeah.

0:13:080:13:09

First and classics.

0:13:110:13:13

Far from it, I'm afraid.

0:13:130:13:14

Vikings, do you want to go

0:13:140:13:15

for another bonus point?

0:13:150:13:17

-First religion.

-And why would that be?

0:13:170:13:19

Um, I'm already flailing, sorry.

0:13:190:13:22

I really couldn't give you any more.

0:13:220:13:24

The answer is 1st - Animals.

0:13:240:13:27

These are all comedy tours

0:13:270:13:29

by Ricky Gervais.

0:13:290:13:30

Any fans of Ricky Gervais over there?

0:13:300:13:32

No, but my hate for him would've...

0:13:320:13:36

I knew I recognised that for some reason.

0:13:360:13:39

He was asked on Twitter,

0:13:390:13:40

"How do you feel about the American Office being

0:13:400:13:42

"better than the British version?"

0:13:420:13:44

He responded, "Rich."

0:13:440:13:46

All Ricky Gervais comedy tours,

0:13:470:13:49

and next in the sequence would be Animals.

0:13:490:13:51

So no bonus points there.

0:13:510:13:53

Vikings, you may choose your own question.

0:13:530:13:55

Water, please.

0:13:550:13:56

Water. OK, what would come fourth in this sequence?

0:13:560:13:59

Here's the first.

0:13:590:14:00

Um... Right.

0:14:020:14:03

Yeah, it's... Next, please.

0:14:080:14:11

Are these books?

0:14:120:14:14

-Yeah, it looks like.

-Are these books by...

0:14:140:14:17

-The president?

-Of German...

0:14:170:14:20

OK, next, please.

0:14:220:14:23

OK, it's US presidents, so The Art of the Deal,

0:14:250:14:28

something like that, that Trump's written?

0:14:280:14:30

The Art Of The Deal, is that what it is?

0:14:300:14:33

-Just, just, just... Yeah.

-OK, well.

0:14:330:14:35

Please don't buy it, but The Art Of The Deal.

0:14:360:14:39

Is exactly the answer we chose ourselves.

0:14:390:14:42

What is happening here?

0:14:420:14:43

That's successive US presidents who've written books.

0:14:430:14:47

Who are those presidents?

0:14:470:14:49

Working backwards from Trump, um,

0:14:490:14:52

Obama, and um...

0:14:520:14:55

-George Bush.

-Yeah, Bush.

0:14:550:14:57

George W Bush, Decision Points.

0:14:570:14:58

And My Life, Bill Clinton.

0:14:580:15:00

Is that a very well known book, The Art Of The Deal?

0:15:000:15:02

You thought of that one and so did our question writers.

0:15:020:15:05

-Have you read it?

-I haven't, no.

0:15:050:15:07

No, I've made all of my deals without it.

0:15:070:15:09

What else might I have accepted as the fourth clue?

0:15:090:15:14

I mean, you could guess these.

0:15:140:15:15

Time To Get Tough, Making America Number One Again.

0:15:150:15:18

LAUGHTER

0:15:180:15:19

Think Like A Champion, Surviving At The Top, The Art Of Survival,

0:15:190:15:22

The America We Deserve,

0:15:220:15:24

The Way To The Top - The Best Business Advice I Ever Received,

0:15:240:15:27

Think Like A Billionaire.

0:15:270:15:28

I definitely do think like a billionaire,

0:15:280:15:30

and spend like a billionaire.

0:15:300:15:31

The only problem is

0:15:310:15:32

I'm not a billionaire.

0:15:320:15:34

Think Big And Kick Ass In Business And Life,

0:15:340:15:36

Trump 101 - The Way To Success,

0:15:360:15:38

How To Get Rich,

0:15:380:15:39

and the best of course, Golf Advice.

0:15:390:15:42

That's Golf Advice, he's written that one.

0:15:420:15:45

Very well done. Wanderers,

0:15:450:15:46

back to you for a question.

0:15:460:15:48

-Lion, please.

-The Lion question.

0:15:480:15:49

What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:15:490:15:52

Here's the first.

0:15:520:15:53

Next.

0:16:020:16:03

Oh, is it...?

0:16:050:16:06

THEY WHISPER

0:16:060:16:08

-Putney Bridge or... Putney Bridge?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:16:130:16:15

-Putney Bridge.

-I'm afraid

0:16:170:16:18

that is not the answer.

0:16:180:16:19

So I'm going to show the third

0:16:190:16:21

in the sequence to the Vikings,

0:16:210:16:22

for a possible bonus point.

0:16:220:16:23

Uh, yeah, The Finish Line.

0:16:230:16:25

SHE LAUGHS I'm afraid that's not the answer.

0:16:250:16:28

The answer is, unluckily for you, Barnes Bridge.

0:16:280:16:32

-Barnes Bridge.

-What's the sequence?

0:16:320:16:34

It's to do with the boat race.

0:16:340:16:36

That's right. They're timing points.

0:16:360:16:38

So in the Oxford and Cambridge University boat races,

0:16:380:16:40

they start with the

0:16:400:16:42

whatever you call

0:16:420:16:43

the front bit of the boat, the...

0:16:430:16:45

-Bow.

-Bow, is it?

0:16:450:16:47

The front bit, it lines up

0:16:470:16:49

with the university stone,

0:16:490:16:51

and as they row...

0:16:510:16:52

Do they row? They row, don't they, not sailing.

0:16:520:16:54

I'm not big on... I'm not big on boats.

0:16:540:16:56

As they move through the water,

0:16:560:16:58

they pass the mile post,

0:16:580:16:59

and you get timings for

0:16:590:17:00

where they are at those points.

0:17:000:17:02

But geographically,

0:17:020:17:03

Barnes Bridge is what you'd expect,

0:17:030:17:05

not Putney. So no points there.

0:17:050:17:07

Vikings, what would you like to boat towards this time?

0:17:070:17:10

-Twisted Flax.

-The Twisted Flax.

0:17:100:17:12

OK, what will come fourth in this sequence?

0:17:120:17:14

Here's the first.

0:17:140:17:16

Luchsinger and Reiss, '56, um...

0:17:180:17:21

-They're German names.

-It could be

0:17:210:17:23

the first Eurovision Song Contest that was about then.

0:17:230:17:25

Yeah, actually. I think go next, please.

0:17:260:17:29

'53. When was Volare?

0:17:350:17:38

-I don't know. Possibly.

-Next, please.

0:17:380:17:42

OK, it's somebody who won in '50.

0:17:420:17:46

That's probably people climbing Everest, so say Hillary and Hillary.

0:17:460:17:49

Oh, Hillary. Beautiful.

0:17:490:17:51

-I hope that's right.

-We'll take it.

0:17:510:17:54

'53, Hillary and Tenzing.

0:17:540:17:57

And just give us a blast of Volare.

0:17:570:17:59

# Vo... #

0:17:590:18:01

The answer is Hillary and Tenzing,

0:18:010:18:03

1953.

0:18:030:18:04

-What's going on here?

-Uh, yeah,

0:18:040:18:06

these are people who've conquered Everest in those respective years.

0:18:060:18:09

Now, it actually isn't Everest.

0:18:090:18:12

They are all the first climbers.

0:18:120:18:14

It's different mountains, getting higher.

0:18:140:18:16

So, Luchsinger and Reiss, that's Lhotse.

0:18:160:18:18

The Swiss climbers first

0:18:180:18:20

to climb up Lhotse,

0:18:200:18:22

and then Kangchenjunga, Band and Brown,

0:18:220:18:24

1955. They were British climbers,

0:18:240:18:25

and it's said they never got

0:18:250:18:27

completely to the summit,

0:18:270:18:28

because they were respecting local

0:18:280:18:30

beliefs that you don't tread on the

0:18:300:18:31

snow at the top, but they got as close as you can.

0:18:310:18:34

So, who do you think these people are in clue three?

0:18:340:18:36

K2, presumably?

0:18:360:18:38

First people to climb K2,

0:18:380:18:40

and then Hillary and Tenzing,

0:18:400:18:42

the highest mountain, of course, Everest in 1953.

0:18:420:18:44

Well done. Wanderers,

0:18:440:18:45

one question remains for you.

0:18:450:18:47

The Two Reeds. What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:18:470:18:49

They will be picture clues - I want to know what sort of thing

0:18:490:18:52

you'd expect to see in the fourth picture.

0:18:520:18:53

Time starts now.

0:18:530:18:55

No. So it's not...

0:18:570:18:59

THEY WHISPER

0:19:000:19:02

Next.

0:19:030:19:05

No drinking. So this is like Wilson Smith, right?

0:19:070:19:10

Dogs... By animals, maybe.

0:19:100:19:11

-No pets.

-No monkeys...

0:19:110:19:13

-No dogs...

-Monkey's drinking.

0:19:130:19:15

Next.

0:19:150:19:18

Oh.

0:19:180:19:20

It's the pushing in the swimming pool.

0:19:200:19:23

-So, is it going to be...?

-I don't know.

0:19:230:19:25

Pushing a bicycle.

0:19:270:19:29

Oh, no. Drinking, bicycle...

0:19:290:19:32

Two seconds.

0:19:320:19:33

No heavy petting.

0:19:350:19:36

A picture of somebody kissing.

0:19:360:19:38

I love so many things about that answer.

0:19:380:19:40

I wish I could give you points.

0:19:400:19:42

I love it as an idea, cos it's brilliant.

0:19:420:19:44

I love it that the suggestion for illustrating heavy petting would be

0:19:440:19:47

kissing. It's all brilliant.

0:19:470:19:48

Unfortunately, it's not the answer.

0:19:480:19:50

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

0:19:500:19:52

Uh, yeah, no smoking.

0:19:520:19:53

I'm afraid that's not it.

0:19:530:19:54

Let me tell you what would be in the fourth picture.

0:19:540:19:57

It would be a seesaw,

0:19:570:19:58

with an elephant at one end and a butterfly at the other.

0:19:580:20:01

Of course, that doesn't help.

0:20:010:20:03

What if I told you that the rules

0:20:030:20:04

being suggested by these pictures

0:20:040:20:07

are no animal shall sleep in a bed.

0:20:070:20:10

No animal shall drink alcohol.

0:20:100:20:11

No animal shall kill any other animal.

0:20:110:20:14

And I want to hear -

0:20:140:20:16

all animals are equal.

0:20:160:20:18

What is the sequence?

0:20:180:20:20

Animal Farm.

0:20:200:20:22

It is the Seven Commandments of Animalism,

0:20:220:20:25

in George Orwell's Animal Farm.

0:20:250:20:27

What happened to Animal Farm in 1944,

0:20:270:20:30

when it was sent in for publication at Faber and Faber?

0:20:300:20:33

It was published as a children's book?

0:20:330:20:35

It wasn't published at all. It was rejected.

0:20:350:20:37

TS Eliot, director of Faber and Faber, said,

0:20:370:20:39

"We have no conviction that this is the right point of view

0:20:390:20:41

"from which to criticise the political situation

0:20:410:20:43

"at the present time."

0:20:430:20:44

Nice guy, TS Eliot.

0:20:440:20:45

It was rejected, but then it was published the following year, 1945.

0:20:450:20:48

Animal Farm by George Orwell.

0:20:480:20:51

At the end of round two,

0:20:510:20:52

the Wanderers have four points,

0:20:520:20:54

the Vikings have ten.

0:20:540:20:55

I'm now going to invite the teams to make themselves comfortable up

0:20:570:21:00

against the Wall.

0:21:000:21:02

It's time to connect 16 clues into four groups of four.

0:21:020:21:05

You'll be going first this time, Wanderers.

0:21:050:21:07

Would you like Lion or Water?

0:21:070:21:08

-The Lion, please.

-OK.

0:21:080:21:10

Two and a half minutes to solve the Lion Wall, starting now.

0:21:100:21:14

OK. Those are computers there, so Acron, Oric, Apple...

0:21:150:21:20

-There it goes.

-Yep.

0:21:210:21:23

We've got fruit.

0:21:240:21:26

Apple. It's probably going to be too simple.

0:21:270:21:29

Should we try mango?

0:21:290:21:31

Go for it, yeah.

0:21:310:21:32

Mango...

0:21:320:21:34

Go for it.

0:21:340:21:35

Yeah, it's not working.

0:21:350:21:36

Harlequin, musical entertainers.

0:21:380:21:40

There's a word one.

0:21:420:21:44

There's going to be a word one.

0:21:440:21:45

OK, right, it's...

0:21:450:21:47

What's Bruce going to be? Who's...?

0:21:470:21:50

-English film star.

-Philips is a...

0:21:500:21:52

-There's two presenters.

-Yeah.

0:21:540:21:56

Shall we put some surnames in

0:21:560:21:58

and see what happens?

0:21:580:21:59

-CHUCKLES:

-OK, we'll do that.

0:21:590:22:01

Find another surname.

0:22:010:22:02

All right.

0:22:020:22:04

-Harry Lime. Harry...

-Harry...

0:22:050:22:08

Fionas. Fiona Apple, Fiona Phillips.

0:22:100:22:12

-Fiona Bruce.

-Nice.

-Very nice.

0:22:120:22:14

-Right, do you want me to go for it?

-Yeah.

-Oh, we got that one.

0:22:140:22:17

Three lives now.

0:22:170:22:19

-Right, so...

-What we got left?

0:22:190:22:21

What else is Rambo in?

0:22:210:22:22

THEY WHISPER

0:22:240:22:28

Is it a pronunciation thing?

0:22:280:22:30

Maybe there is fruit.

0:22:350:22:37

But there's an obscure one.

0:22:370:22:38

Harlequin could be a fruit.

0:22:380:22:39

Go for harlequin as a fruit.

0:22:390:22:40

We've now got limited lives.

0:22:400:22:42

OK. No, so...

0:22:420:22:44

There's wood.

0:22:460:22:48

There's a harlequin duck, is there another duck?

0:22:490:22:52

No.

0:22:520:22:53

Should we try some fruit again

0:22:560:22:58

and see, just try another one?

0:22:580:22:59

-Pick one.

-Rambo.

0:22:590:23:02

One more.

0:23:020:23:04

Is our bet fruit's a red herring?

0:23:040:23:06

CAPTAIN CHUCKLES

0:23:060:23:08

-Ten seconds.

-Do we go for wood already?

0:23:080:23:11

-Go for it.

-Nope. That's your three lives.

0:23:110:23:13

The Wall has frozen.

0:23:130:23:14

But you've found two groups on this very difficult wall.

0:23:140:23:16

Can you tell me the connection?

0:23:160:23:18

Acorn and so forth?

0:23:180:23:20

They're computers, I think, from the '80s.

0:23:200:23:22

Yeah, they're former computer brands.

0:23:220:23:24

And the green group - Shaw, Phillips, Bruce, Apple?

0:23:240:23:27

They're all Fionas.

0:23:270:23:28

That's right. Fiona Shaw, the actor, and you can still get points for the

0:23:280:23:31

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

0:23:310:23:34

Hello.

0:23:340:23:36

Mango, balsa, hive, Rambo.

0:23:360:23:40

Change one letter, they're a dance.

0:23:400:23:41

That's what we'll go for.

0:23:410:23:43

Very well spotted.

0:23:430:23:44

You change a letter, and they become tango, salsa, jive and mambo.

0:23:440:23:47

Really hard to see on the Wall.

0:23:470:23:49

Well done for seeing it there.

0:23:490:23:50

Hidden dances.

0:23:500:23:52

And the last one. Lime, avocado, and so forth.

0:23:520:23:55

Green.

0:23:550:23:56

They are all types of green.

0:23:560:23:59

So you found two groups and gave me four connections.

0:23:590:24:02

That is a total of six.

0:24:020:24:03

Let's bring the Vikings back now, give them the other Wall.

0:24:030:24:06

It's the Water Wall for you, Vikings,

0:24:060:24:07

you should be comfortable with that.

0:24:070:24:09

Two and a half minutes to solve it, starting now.

0:24:090:24:13

Let's cut out those design ones.

0:24:150:24:17

Yeah, I can see...

0:24:170:24:18

Ponder and Mull.

0:24:210:24:23

Um, da, da, da, da... Brood.

0:24:230:24:26

Woolgather.

0:24:260:24:28

-Oh!

-Right.

0:24:280:24:29

-Shipping areas as well.

-Fisher.

0:24:290:24:32

Lundy, Shannon...

0:24:320:24:33

Shannon...

0:24:330:24:35

-Come on.

-Three lives now.

0:24:350:24:37

John Quill is a sort of yellow.

0:24:370:24:39

It's also flowers...

0:24:390:24:40

Angus, Guernsey,

0:24:400:24:41

Jersey and Red Poll are all cattle.

0:24:410:24:44

What would be the other four?

0:24:440:24:45

Sounds like John Quill. Read, read.

0:24:450:24:47

-Yes.

-Ah, rows.

0:24:470:24:48

So rows works for John Quill.

0:24:480:24:50

-Yeah.

-OK. Rows, read, wight,

0:24:500:24:51

John Quill, and that's because...?

0:24:510:24:54

-It's a yellow.

-Is it now?

0:24:540:24:55

A John Quill's a bit like a daffodil.

0:24:550:24:56

Same colour. Similar colour.

0:24:560:24:58

-We've still got so time, so...

-Try it.

0:24:580:25:00

That's it! You've solved the wall.

0:25:000:25:02

Very well done.

0:25:020:25:03

So that's four points immediately.

0:25:030:25:05

What about the connections?

0:25:050:25:06

Ponder and so on?

0:25:060:25:09

Ah, well, that would be to think on.

0:25:090:25:11

That's it. All things you didn't really need to do during that Wall.

0:25:110:25:14

And the green group, starting Shannon?

0:25:140:25:16

-Did we say shipping?

-The shipping forecast areas.

0:25:160:25:19

Shipping forecast areas.

0:25:190:25:20

Shannon, Bailey, Lundy, Fisher.

0:25:200:25:22

And what about the next pink group, starting read or "red"?

0:25:220:25:26

They're homophones, or heterophones,

0:25:260:25:29

I'm never sure which is which,

0:25:290:25:31

of colours, red, jonquil, rose and white.

0:25:310:25:33

Homophones. Homo, the same, hetero, different.

0:25:330:25:36

And the last turquoise group, starting jersey?

0:25:360:25:39

Is it cows? Cows?

0:25:390:25:41

-Cattle breeds, yeah.

-Jersey, Red Poll, Guernsey, Angus.

0:25:410:25:44

Simply breeds of cow.

0:25:440:25:45

So that's four more points for the connections and the bonus of two for

0:25:450:25:49

getting it all right. That is a maximum of ten.

0:25:490:25:51

Very well done. Let's have a look at the overall scores.

0:25:510:25:54

The Wanderers have ten points.

0:25:550:25:57

The Vikings have 20.

0:25:570:25:58

So, a bit of a turnaround needed, but it can be done.

0:26:010:26:03

It's been done before. Lucky you've been practising.

0:26:030:26:07

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:26:070:26:08

I can tell you that the first group all begin with a soft C.

ENDGAME JINGLE

0:27:380:27:40

That's it. The bell has gone for the end of the quiz,

0:27:400:27:43

and I can tell you,

0:27:430:27:44

after a very impressive round four -

0:27:440:27:46

very good round for you there, John -

0:27:460:27:47

the final scores are Wanderers 19, Vikings 25.

0:27:470:27:53

So, Vikings, you are through to the next round.

0:27:530:27:55

Wanderers, you're also through to the next round.

0:27:550:27:57

A different sort of next round.

0:27:570:27:58

I'm still struggling with the concept, but no-one's going.

0:27:580:28:01

These are the quarterfinals. No-one's through to the semis yet,

0:28:010:28:04

and yet nobody's out either. Well done, everyone.

0:28:040:28:06

Very good quizzing. And that's it.

0:28:060:28:09

If this were a meal, we've had our starters,

0:28:090:28:11

our main courses and our puddings,

0:28:110:28:13

and as the last of the missing vowels coffee slips away,

0:28:130:28:16

all that remains is the bill, which is astronomical.

0:28:160:28:20

It's tens of thousands of pounds.

0:28:200:28:22

That's where the comparison sort of falls down.

0:28:220:28:24

Compared with having a meal,

0:28:240:28:25

a television programme is eye-wateringly expensive.

0:28:250:28:28

It's crazy money. It's ridi...

0:28:280:28:30

You'll have to split it.

0:28:300:28:31

Goodbye.
