Hello and welcome to Only Connect.

0:00:210:00:23

And if you'd like to come along

0:00:230:00:25

and be in the live audience for the show,

0:00:250:00:26

then please drop us a line via the website.

0:00:260:00:28

I mean, it'll be slightly weird

0:00:280:00:30

because we don't have a live audience for the show.

0:00:300:00:32

There isn't a great crowd of people here,

0:00:320:00:34

not laughing at the things I say.

0:00:340:00:35

Apart from the crew.

0:00:350:00:36

But you can stand with them, the cameramen, they won't mind,

0:00:360:00:39

they haven't got much to do.

0:00:390:00:40

They're just standing around, standing, standing.

0:00:400:00:42

We're not making Lord Of The Rings. Although sometimes it looks like it.

0:00:420:00:46

Let's meet the teams.

0:00:460:00:47

On my right, Ian King,

0:00:480:00:50

a French and Russian graduate who's listed in

0:00:500:00:52

the Guinness Book Of Records, along with 2,275 colleagues,

0:00:520:00:56

for standing on one leg.

0:00:560:00:57

Tim Harrison, a communications consultant

0:00:580:01:00

who used to be a heavyweight boxer.

0:01:000:01:03

And their captain, Tim Hall, a former accountant

0:01:030:01:06

who successfully predicted a woman's pregnancy using tarot cards.

0:01:060:01:10

All fans of Inspector Morse,

0:01:100:01:12

they are the Detectives.

0:01:120:01:13

Now, you lost your last game against the Escapologists.

0:01:130:01:16

How competitive are you feeling about tonight's match?

0:01:160:01:18

We're going to be absolutely, massively competitive

0:01:180:01:21

as long as that's all right with everyone else.

0:01:210:01:23

Terrifying.

0:01:230:01:25

The opponents you're scaring tonight are, on my left,

0:01:250:01:28

Rob Cromarty, a former archaeologist who enjoys writing Latin poetry.

0:01:280:01:33

Aidan Sproat-Clements, a head of mathematics

0:01:330:01:35

who designed his own wedding stationery using fractals.

0:01:350:01:38

And their captain, Dan Sproat-Clements,

0:01:380:01:41

a housemaster who recently enjoyed a wine-tasting trip to Chablis

0:01:410:01:44

and ended up attending a wedding reception with the vineyard's owner.

0:01:440:01:48

All working at Wellington College,

0:01:480:01:50

they are the Beaks.

0:01:500:01:51

You lost your last game against the Belgophiles.

0:01:510:01:53

Has that rattled the confidence? How's the team?

0:01:530:01:56

There wasn't much confidence to begin with so, yes,

0:01:560:01:59

whatever there was has now safely run away and hidden in the corner.

0:01:590:02:02

We tossed a coin to see who would be going first in this match.

0:02:020:02:05

Detectives, you won. Please choose an Egyptian hieroglyph.

0:02:050:02:08

Can we have Water, please?

0:02:080:02:09

Water. Good luck, both teams.

0:02:090:02:10

Someone has to go home tonight, I hope it's neither of you.

0:02:100:02:13

But I'm hoping in vain.

0:02:130:02:14

What is the connection between these apparently random clues?

0:02:150:02:18

Here's the first.

0:02:180:02:19

Next, please.

0:02:220:02:24

That is the effect whereby stupid people don't realise they're stupid.

0:02:250:02:31

It's possible, the first one is very similar.

0:02:310:02:32

Shall we go for another one?

0:02:320:02:34

Next, please.

0:02:340:02:36

That is when you are promoted to your level of incompetence.

0:02:360:02:39

Maximum, sort of...

0:02:400:02:41

All sorts of psychological effects

0:02:430:02:45

or psychological observations of how people behave.

0:02:450:02:49

-But to do with intelligence?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:02:490:02:51

BELL

0:02:510:02:53

They're all psychological observations

0:02:530:02:55

about the way people act,

0:02:550:02:57

to do with their intelligence.

0:02:570:03:00

So, the Peter Principle, people are

0:03:000:03:02

promoted to the level of their incompetence.

0:03:020:03:04

The Dunning-Kruger effect is when stupid people don't

0:03:040:03:07

realise that they're stupid.

0:03:070:03:08

I'm minded to accept it.

0:03:080:03:11

That's very good of you.

0:03:110:03:12

I really want to hear incompetence

0:03:120:03:14

rather than intelligence or stupidity, but you're in

0:03:140:03:17

the right zone and I think you know what these things are.

0:03:170:03:19

You didn't need to see the last one, Dilbert Principle, what's that?

0:03:190:03:22

Is it something to do with the cartoon Dilbert?

0:03:220:03:24

And the Pointy Haired Boss, presumably?

0:03:240:03:26

I don't know if it's to do with a cartoon. I know what it is.

0:03:260:03:29

The idea is you promote somebody higher up the chain

0:03:290:03:32

because the higher up they are, the less damage they can do.

0:03:320:03:34

So you keep the incompetent people...

0:03:340:03:36

I don't know what you're implying!

0:03:360:03:37

But at the lower levels, where people do the real work,

0:03:370:03:40

you keep the competent people.

0:03:400:03:41

And, yes, the Peter Principle is people rising to the level of

0:03:410:03:44

their incompetence. A similar idea, really.

0:03:440:03:46

Putts Law is negative selection,

0:03:460:03:48

people who understand what they don't manage

0:03:480:03:50

and manage what they don't understand.

0:03:500:03:53

The Dunning-Kruger effect, I think, as you said... Yes.

0:03:530:03:55

My notes say, "A cognitive bias in which low ability individuals

0:03:550:03:58

"suffer from illusory superiority,

0:03:580:04:01

"assessing their own ability as higher than it really is."

0:04:010:04:04

We all know one of those.

0:04:040:04:05

I can literally see the cameramen nodding. Mmm-hmm.

0:04:050:04:08

Do you know what it's inspired by, that study?

0:04:080:04:10

People called Dunning and Kruger.

0:04:110:04:13

No, I think they were the people that did the study.

0:04:130:04:15

No, it was a man who robbed two banks

0:04:150:04:17

and he covered his face in lemon juice...

0:04:170:04:19

Because he thought it makes

0:04:190:04:21

invisible ink or something like that?

0:04:210:04:22

Exactly so.

0:04:220:04:24

Because you can make invisible ink,

0:04:240:04:25

he thought his face wouldn't be picked out by CCTV.

0:04:250:04:28

Well done, you get two points.

0:04:280:04:30

-Beaks, what would you like?

-Eye of Horus, please.

0:04:300:04:32

The Eye of Horus. These are going to be picture clues.

0:04:320:04:34

Something connects them. What is it?

0:04:340:04:36

Time starts now.

0:04:360:04:37

Next, please.

0:04:420:04:43

Next.

0:04:510:04:52

BELL

0:05:000:05:01

Demi-something.

0:05:030:05:04

You also get two points for coming in after three clues.

0:05:040:05:06

Well done. I'll show you the last clue, and tell me...?

0:05:060:05:08

-Demijohn?

-Demijohn is the last one. What are the other pictures?

0:05:080:05:11

-The first is a demitasse, a cup.

-That's right.

0:05:110:05:13

And a demi-semi-quaver.

0:05:130:05:15

That's right. The second one, a demilune.

0:05:150:05:18

A demi-semi-quaver, which is a 32nd note.

0:05:180:05:21

Do you know what you call a 512th note?

0:05:210:05:23

-Give him a second.

-Erm...

0:05:250:05:27

A hemi-demi-semi- hemi-demi-semi-quaver.

0:05:270:05:30

All demi-somethings, well done.

0:05:310:05:33

Back to you, Detectives, for a choice.

0:05:330:05:34

-Can we have Twisted Flax, please?

-Yes, you can.

0:05:340:05:37

What is the connection between these clues?

0:05:370:05:39

Here's the first.

0:05:390:05:40

Next, please.

0:05:470:05:49

-They used to be one country. They used to be united.

-Japan?

0:05:510:05:54

Do you want to go for another one? Just to be certain.

0:05:540:05:56

-I think we'd want to.

-Next, please.

0:05:560:05:58

-Let's go for it, shall we?

-BELL

0:06:140:06:16

They all used to be one entity.

0:06:170:06:19

I'm afraid they did not.

0:06:200:06:22

So I'm going to show the last clue to the Beaks for a possible bonus.

0:06:220:06:25

-No?

-No, you don't know.

0:06:250:06:27

-Got it now.

-What is it?

-Straits.

0:06:270:06:29

They're straits.

0:06:290:06:30

Straits, and the countries that they separate.

0:06:300:06:32

So, the Denmark Strait separates Iceland and Greenland,

0:06:320:06:35

the Korea Strait, South Korea and Japan.

0:06:350:06:38

And so forth.

0:06:380:06:39

What do you find at the western end of the Denmark Strait?

0:06:390:06:42

-Denmark?

-SHE LAUGHS

0:06:430:06:46

You find the North Atlantic circulation pump.

0:06:460:06:48

What is the North Atlantic circulation pump?

0:06:480:06:50

-Erm...

-An area of rising hot water

0:06:500:06:51

that keeps the Atlantic spinning the way it should?

0:06:510:06:55

I mean, in a way...

0:06:550:06:57

It's the world's highest waterfall,

0:06:570:06:59

-but it's underwater.

-OK.

0:06:590:07:01

And the difference in temperature means the air...?

0:07:020:07:04

That's right, you get temperature differences. Isn't that weird?

0:07:040:07:07

I think it's cheating for a waterfall to be underwater,

0:07:070:07:09

because how do you get to go and look at it?

0:07:090:07:11

That's what you'd find at the western end of the Denmark Strait.

0:07:110:07:13

So, no points there. Beaks, your turn to pick a hieroglyph.

0:07:130:07:16

-Lion, please.

-Lion.

0:07:160:07:18

What is the connection between these apparently random clues?

0:07:180:07:20

Here's the first.

0:07:200:07:21

Next, please.

0:07:260:07:27

Next, please.

0:07:370:07:39

Are they anagrams?

0:07:420:07:43

-Yes!

-BELL

0:07:450:07:47

They are anagrams of your Only Connect hieroglyphs.

0:07:480:07:52

They are anagrams of hieroglyphs. Very well done.

0:07:520:07:55

I'm going to show you the last clue.

0:07:550:07:57

What are they anagrams for?

0:07:570:07:59

Water, Lion, Two Reeds and Horned Viper.

0:07:590:08:03

That's right. The first one, Horned Viper.

0:08:030:08:05

Ed Towers is Two Reeds.

0:08:050:08:06

Loin is Lion. ET war, Water.

0:08:060:08:09

-Shall I tell you some others?

-Please.

0:08:090:08:11

All very appropriate. Horned Viper, "no perv hired".

0:08:110:08:15

If only. If only, is what I'd say to that.

0:08:150:08:18

You can also make "hide porn rev" and "hen provider".

0:08:180:08:21

Eye of Horus, "house foray".

0:08:210:08:24

Twisted Flax, "fits lewd tax".

0:08:240:08:27

All anagrams of hieroglyphs used on Only Connect.

0:08:270:08:29

Very well spotted.

0:08:290:08:30

Detectives, what would you like?

0:08:300:08:32

-Can we have Two Reeds, please?

-Two Reeds. OK,

0:08:320:08:35

I'm afraid it's the music question.

0:08:350:08:36

You'll be hearing your lovely clues. What connects them?

0:08:360:08:38

Time starts now.

0:08:380:08:40

# This old world will never change...

0:08:400:08:43

-Do you have an idea?

-No.

0:08:460:08:47

# ..The way it's been... #

0:08:470:08:49

Next, please.

0:08:530:08:54

# I'm going to wash the dishes

0:08:540:08:57

# While you go have a beer... #

0:08:570:09:01

Next, please.

0:09:010:09:02

# Hey, kids, shake it loose together

0:09:020:09:05

# The spotlight's hitting something

0:09:050:09:07

# That's been known to change the weather

0:09:070:09:09

# We'll kill the fatted... #

0:09:090:09:11

Next, please.

0:09:110:09:12

UP-TEMPO DIXIELAND JAZZ

0:09:120:09:14

BELL

0:09:170:09:19

-Are they all NFL teams?

-Very well done.

0:09:190:09:22

-What did we hear?

-We recognised Bennie And The Jets

0:09:220:09:24

-and When The Saints Go Marching In.

-Yep?

0:09:240:09:27

-Haven't a clue on the others.

-We also heard Dolphins, Tim Buckley,

0:09:270:09:30

for the Miami Dolphins. And Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?,

0:09:300:09:32

Paula Cole. Well spotted.

0:09:320:09:35

All contain NFL teams in their titles.

0:09:350:09:38

Back to you, Beaks.

0:09:380:09:39

I suppose it will be the Horned Viper.

0:09:390:09:41

Hide porn rev.

0:09:410:09:42

It's the Horned Viper question.

0:09:420:09:44

What is the connection between these clues?

0:09:440:09:46

Here's the first.

0:09:460:09:47

Next, please.

0:09:520:09:54

Are these David Walliams novels?

0:09:570:10:00

-Are you sure?

-Yeah, go for it. Let's go for it.

0:10:000:10:02

BELL

0:10:020:10:04

David Walliams novels.

0:10:040:10:05

I'm afraid not.

0:10:050:10:07

So I'm going to show the next two clues to the Detectives

0:10:070:10:09

for a possible bonus point.

0:10:090:10:11

They've all won the prize for children's literature.

0:10:110:10:15

Carnegie, is it?

0:10:150:10:16

No, they may have all won prizes, but not all the same one.

0:10:160:10:19

Gangsta Granny is a David Walliams novel.

0:10:190:10:21

The Butterfly Lion is Michael Morpurgo.

0:10:210:10:23

The Selfish Giant, Oscar Wilde.

0:10:230:10:25

They are children's stories in which the title character dies.

0:10:250:10:30

Sorry for the spoiler, there.

0:10:300:10:32

But, yes, that is the connection, is that they have tragic endings.

0:10:320:10:35

-Do you know The Selfish Giant, the Oscar Wilde story?

-No.

0:10:350:10:39

A giant dies under a tree.

0:10:390:10:42

Do people feel sorry for him? Because he is selfish.

0:10:420:10:44

I think he becomes less selfish over the course of the story,

0:10:440:10:46

-then dies anyway.

-Oh, I see.

0:10:460:10:48

The Butterfly Lion...

0:10:480:10:50

This is awful, I'm reading these plots.

0:10:500:10:52

The title character is befriended as an orphan cub, sold,

0:10:520:10:56

then it dies and then...

0:10:560:10:57

Right, I'm never reading that, I'm never reading that.

0:10:580:11:01

At the end of Round One,

0:11:010:11:03

the Detectives have three points,

0:11:030:11:05

the Beaks have four.

0:11:050:11:06

Round Two, the sequences round.

0:11:090:11:11

The teams may see a maximum of three clues.

0:11:110:11:13

I want to know what will come fourth in a sequence.

0:11:130:11:15

Detectives, you'll be going first again.

0:11:150:11:16

-Which hieroglyph would you like?

-Can we have Eye of Horus, please?

0:11:160:11:19

Yes, you can. What will come fourth in this sequence?

0:11:190:11:21

Here's the first.

0:11:210:11:23

Next, please.

0:11:320:11:33

CNN?

0:11:360:11:37

Fox?

0:11:370:11:39

Next.

0:11:420:11:43

-That's HB.

-HBO.

0:11:440:11:46

So what's that? That's HBOS. HBO.

0:11:460:11:49

HB.

0:11:490:11:50

-So will that be just H?

-Hydrogen.

-Yeah.

0:11:500:11:52

BELL

0:11:540:11:55

Hydrogen.

0:11:550:11:56

Is an acceptable answer.

0:11:560:11:58

I'd have preferred Ian Watkins from Steps.

0:11:580:12:01

-But why?

-It's going from HBOS to HBO, to HB, to H.

0:12:010:12:05

That's right. HBOS, HBO, HB,

0:12:050:12:07

I need something representing H.

0:12:070:12:09

Being more highbrow than us,

0:12:090:12:10

you chose hydrogen rather than a member of Steps.

0:12:100:12:13

Back to you, Beaks, for a choice.

0:12:130:12:14

-Water, please.

-Water. What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:12:140:12:17

Here's the first.

0:12:170:12:19

Next, please.

0:12:260:12:27

Heads, shoulders, knees and toes.

0:12:290:12:32

-Toes is phalanges.

-No, meta...

0:12:320:12:35

Or metatarsals.

0:12:350:12:38

Yeah, yeah, go for it. Go for it.

0:12:380:12:39

BELL

0:12:420:12:43

-Metatarsals.

-And why would that be?

0:12:430:12:46

Head, shoulders, knees and toes.

0:12:460:12:47

I'll accept it, that's the right puzzle.

0:12:480:12:50

I think a doctor would tell you that phalanges would be more correct

0:12:500:12:54

than metatarsals, but you have solved the puzzle.

0:12:540:12:56

These are of course...?

0:12:560:12:58

The bones corresponding to the bits

0:12:580:13:00

in the song Head, Shoulders, Knees And Toes.

0:13:000:13:02

I think your parietal bone is that bit around your temples and eyes.

0:13:020:13:06

Yes, the sides and top of the cranium.

0:13:060:13:08

And the collarbone connects the shoulder blade to the sternum.

0:13:080:13:11

-Kneecaps?

-Yes, patellae.

0:13:110:13:13

Do you know...? Who's the classicist?

0:13:130:13:15

Oh, dear.

0:13:150:13:17

What does that mean, do you know?

0:13:170:13:19

Given the ending, I'd suggest it's a diminutive,

0:13:190:13:21

-so it's a small form of something.

-A little pan.

0:13:210:13:23

Isn't that sweet? The knees, little pans.

0:13:230:13:26

Two girls, one on each knee.

0:13:260:13:28

Phalanges, the bones of the toes,

0:13:290:13:30

metatarsals, bones of the foot, I think, really.

0:13:300:13:32

But you've solved it correctly. Well done.

0:13:320:13:35

Back to you, Detectives, for a choice.

0:13:350:13:37

-Lion, please.

-Lion.

0:13:370:13:38

OK, what will come fourth in this sequence?

0:13:380:13:41

Here's the first.

0:13:410:13:42

Next, please.

0:13:480:13:49

Next, please.

0:13:540:13:55

Right, he's the host of the...

0:13:570:13:59

Which show in America? Of the late-night talk shows?

0:13:590:14:02

-Has he been replaced by James Corden?

-Yes.

0:14:040:14:07

BELL

0:14:100:14:12

Without a huge amount of confidence, James Corden.

0:14:120:14:15

Is the right answer.

0:14:150:14:17

Why do you think that might be?

0:14:170:14:18

They are the hosts of a late-night chat show in America,

0:14:180:14:20

-but I can't remember which one.

-The Late Late Show, that's right,

0:14:200:14:23

an American talk show from 1995 to the present.

0:14:230:14:25

What is James Corden's middle name?

0:14:270:14:28

It's gone completely from my head.

0:14:300:14:31

-Do you know?

-Alexander?

0:14:310:14:33

-Kimberley.

-Oh.

-It's Kimberley.

0:14:330:14:35

So even though you weren't confident, you were correct

0:14:350:14:37

and you may have the points. Well done.

0:14:370:14:39

Back to you, Beaks, for a choice.

0:14:390:14:41

-Horned Viper, please.

-OK.

0:14:410:14:42

What would come fourth in this picture sequence?

0:14:420:14:46

Here's the first.

0:14:460:14:47

Is that London?

0:14:490:14:50

Next, please.

0:14:530:14:54

That's Fawlty Towers.

0:14:550:14:57

No, no.

0:15:130:15:15

'97 was Tony Blair.

0:15:150:15:16

So then it's Gordon Brown.

0:15:160:15:19

-Do something.

-Two seconds.

0:15:230:15:25

BELL

0:15:250:15:26

Erm...

0:15:260:15:27

So.

0:15:270:15:29

Erm...

0:15:290:15:30

2000 and, erm...

0:15:300:15:32

..17, and...

0:15:320:15:35

I'm going to stop you there, I'm afraid that is not the right answer.

0:15:350:15:38

So I'm going to show the third in the sequence for the Detectives

0:15:380:15:40

for a possible bonus point.

0:15:400:15:42

-Holland?

-Yeah.

0:15:420:15:44

I can't give you long.

0:15:440:15:45

2015 and a picture of a Cameron Highlander.

0:15:450:15:47

Nope. What do you think the sequence is?

0:15:470:15:50

Is it leaders of the Conservative Party in the year they left?

0:15:500:15:52

So it would be 2016 and a Cameron Highlander?

0:15:520:15:55

It's the year they lost elections.

0:15:550:15:58

So, Heath, '74. Major, '97.

0:15:580:16:01

We want then Hague, The Hague, 2001.

0:16:010:16:03

2005, Howard. Michael Howard.

0:16:030:16:06

So we've got Howard the Duck there.

0:16:060:16:08

That is the sequence.

0:16:080:16:09

It is Tory leaders who lost a general election

0:16:090:16:11

and we're going towards Howard.

0:16:110:16:14

You both bounded too far into the future.

0:16:140:16:16

But you have your own question, Detectives, which is it to be?

0:16:160:16:18

-Can we have Two Reeds, please?

-Yes, you can.

0:16:180:16:20

What will come fourth in this sequence?

0:16:200:16:22

Here's the first.

0:16:220:16:23

Next, please.

0:16:320:16:33

BELL

0:16:470:16:48

31-40:2.

0:16:480:16:50

Is the right answer. And why is that?

0:16:500:16:51

We think it is the number of prime numbers within that range.

0:16:510:16:54

That's exactly right, it's as simple as that.

0:16:540:16:56

between 31 and 40 there are two prime numbers.

0:16:560:16:58

One question remains, the Twisted Flax.

0:17:000:17:02

What would come fourth in this sequence?

0:17:020:17:04

Here's the first.

0:17:040:17:05

Next, please.

0:17:070:17:08

It won the Best Picture.

0:17:110:17:13

It was originally the stage version of My Fair Lady.

0:17:180:17:22

Next, please.

0:17:220:17:23

Was Chicago the next musical to win Best Picture?

0:17:250:17:29

-I think so.

-Go for it.

0:17:290:17:31

BELL

0:17:310:17:32

-Chicago.

-Is the right answer.

0:17:320:17:35

What is the sequence?

0:17:350:17:36

These are musicals that have won the Best Picture at the Oscars.

0:17:360:17:39

That is exactly right.

0:17:390:17:41

And why was our question editor disappointed in the spring of 2017?

0:17:410:17:45

Because La La Land very nearly won and then didn't.

0:17:450:17:49

Exactly so.

0:17:490:17:50

Even though Moonlight is unarguably the better film,

0:17:500:17:55

it's not so interesting when you're

0:17:550:17:56

trying to make sequences in Only Connect. Had La La Land won,

0:17:560:17:59

as Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway tried to make happen,

0:17:590:18:02

it would have been so useful for our show.

0:18:020:18:04

Has there ever been a more embarrassing moment at the Oscars?

0:18:040:18:07

Gwyneth Paltrow's crying?

0:18:070:18:09

I don't know. She cried, Jennifer Lawrence fell over,

0:18:090:18:12

there've been terrible speeches, but declaring the wrong thing

0:18:120:18:15

and then the people are taking the thing and then...aargh!

0:18:150:18:18

Terrible.

0:18:190:18:21

But the right answer.

0:18:210:18:22

That means, at the end of Round Two,

0:18:220:18:24

the Beaks have nine points,

0:18:240:18:26

the Detectives have ten.

0:18:260:18:27

Time now for the Wall Game.

0:18:300:18:31

Sorry, Beaks, wrong school.

0:18:310:18:33

But you do get to go first.

0:18:330:18:34

Would you like Lion or Water?

0:18:340:18:36

-Lion, please.

-Lion.

0:18:360:18:37

You have 2.5 minutes to solve the Lion wall, starting now.

0:18:370:18:42

Catcher is a baseball player.

0:18:440:18:46

A channel, a gutter, a trench...

0:18:460:18:48

Long on's a cricket fielder,

0:18:480:18:49

gully's a fielder, slip's a fielder.

0:18:490:18:51

And point's a fielder.

0:18:510:18:52

-BUZZ

-And so is cover.

0:18:550:18:56

-Not gutter, not gutter.

-BUZZ

0:18:580:18:59

Slip, gully, long on and point.

0:18:590:19:02

-Channel...gully...

-BUZZ

0:19:020:19:04

Gutter's a term in bowling.

0:19:050:19:07

BUZZ

0:19:070:19:09

BUZZ

0:19:100:19:11

-Creek, culvert...

-BUZZ

0:19:130:19:15

-Creek, culvert...

-Gully and ditch?

0:19:150:19:17

-Gully, ditch.

-And trench.

-BUZZ

0:19:170:19:18

And also channel, please.

0:19:180:19:20

-A slip is an item of clothing.

-BUZZ

0:19:200:19:23

Can I keep trying the...?

0:19:230:19:24

-OK, so...

-BUZZ

0:19:300:19:31

-Butch Cassidy, Pat Garrett...

-BUZZ

0:19:310:19:33

-..they're cowboys.

-BUZZ

0:19:330:19:35

Fine.

0:19:350:19:36

BUZZ

0:19:370:19:38

-BUZZ

-Long on, gully, slip and cover

0:19:390:19:42

-and point are all fielding points.

-BUZZ

0:19:420:19:45

-OK, fine.

-BUZZ

0:19:450:19:46

BUZZ

0:19:480:19:49

BUZZ

0:19:500:19:52

-Hmm, this is rather difficult.

-BUZZ

0:19:520:19:54

Catcher is a cricket position as well.

0:19:560:19:57

-BUZZ

-Is it?

0:19:570:19:59

BUZZ

0:19:590:20:00

So, creek is... Wonderful.

0:20:000:20:02

So, Creek's a detective, Creek is a river.

0:20:020:20:05

Ditch is a river area.

0:20:050:20:06

We're quite hard for time.

0:20:060:20:08

BUZZ

0:20:080:20:09

Banish is to...

0:20:090:20:11

Three lives, one minute.

0:20:130:20:15

Slipper? P-E-R at the end? OK.

0:20:150:20:18

Lip's in there, but's in there, ban's in there and cat is in there.

0:20:180:20:23

OK, so... Postman Pat.

0:20:230:20:26

Can we try that as one which is...?

0:20:260:20:29

But there's no link to those words.

0:20:290:20:31

-Well, they all contain another hidden word.

-Of?

0:20:310:20:33

They've all got a short, three-letter word in them.

0:20:330:20:36

-BUZZ

-OK.

0:20:360:20:38

So...

0:20:380:20:39

-Is there a word...?

-Butch Cassidy, Pat Garrett.

0:20:410:20:46

Pat Cash, Jonathan Creek.

0:20:460:20:48

Ten seconds.

0:20:500:20:51

Let's go with something.

0:20:510:20:52

BUZZ

0:20:540:20:55

-BUZZ

-OK.

-OK.

-That's it.

0:20:570:20:59

Your lives are up, but you found two groups on that horrible wall.

0:20:590:21:02

Can you tell me the connections?

0:21:020:21:04

Cover, gully, point, long on?

0:21:040:21:06

They're fielding positions in cricket.

0:21:060:21:08

That's exactly what they are.

0:21:080:21:09

And the green group - ditch, gutter, culvert, channel?

0:21:090:21:12

They're all things that water drains through.

0:21:120:21:14

All conduits for water.

0:21:140:21:15

And what about the groups you didn't find?

0:21:150:21:17

Let's resolve the wall.

0:21:170:21:19

There you go.

0:21:200:21:21

Catcher, slip, pat, boy?

0:21:210:21:23

-Things that are best?

-No.

0:21:240:21:26

Now, You mentioned Butch Cassidy earlier.

0:21:260:21:28

It's cow. Like cowboy.

0:21:280:21:30

Cowboy, cowpat, cowslip, cow catcher

0:21:300:21:32

is something to do with a train.

0:21:320:21:34

Oh, yes, in front.

0:21:340:21:35

Cow at the beginning of all of them.

0:21:350:21:38

And the last, turquoise group -

0:21:380:21:41

trench, butch, creek, banish?

0:21:410:21:43

Can you put the letters E-R at the end of them to make...?

0:21:430:21:48

-I think creeker is not quite anything.

-I'm not sure.

0:21:480:21:51

This is what it is.

0:21:510:21:52

You can change the first letter to make a language.

0:21:520:21:56

-French, Dutch, Greek, Danish.

-Greek!

-Danish!

-Wow.

-Unlucky.

0:21:560:21:59

But you did find two groups and give me the connections,

0:21:590:22:02

that's a total of four.

0:22:020:22:04

Let's bring in their opponents now and give them

0:22:040:22:06

the other connecting wall, the Water wall, see how they get on.

0:22:060:22:09

You have got 2.5 minutes to solve the Water wall, starting now.

0:22:090:22:13

OK, shall we go for some of them?

0:22:220:22:24

-BUZZ

-OK, what else?

0:22:260:22:28

BUZZ

0:22:300:22:31

BUZZ

0:22:320:22:33

OK, that's in heraldry.

0:22:360:22:38

Shall we try heraldry?

0:22:380:22:40

Pale fire?

0:22:400:22:41

Anemone, erm...

0:22:410:22:43

Anemone is a plant and a...

0:22:430:22:46

Is that heraldry?

0:22:480:22:49

Other plants here.

0:22:500:22:51

Other plants...

0:22:510:22:53

-Women's names as well.

-Yeah.

0:22:530:22:54

I think we need to work out what...

0:22:560:22:58

Sea anemone, sea cucumber.

0:22:580:23:00

Sea gooseberry? Sea violet?

0:23:000:23:02

BUZZ

0:23:020:23:03

-OK.

-Three lives now.

0:23:050:23:07

Bend sinister, pale fire...

0:23:070:23:09

You think those are both heraldry?

0:23:090:23:11

Violet? Cora?

0:23:110:23:12

It's Downton Abbey. I don't watch it, but...

0:23:140:23:17

Cora, Edith, Mary

0:23:170:23:18

and...

0:23:180:23:20

..and Violet, I think.

0:23:200:23:21

What would these other ones be? They're books by...

0:23:210:23:24

..by Nabokov, aren't they?

0:23:240:23:26

Lolita.

0:23:260:23:27

So, we think it might be Violet.

0:23:300:23:31

-And those are all Nabokov, do we think?

-Yeah.

0:23:310:23:34

-Really?

-Let's see if it's right first.

0:23:340:23:36

-BUZZ

-It's not.

0:23:360:23:38

So, what else can be...?

0:23:380:23:40

That must be a novel, if they're novels, that must be a novel.

0:23:400:23:44

Lolita, there's no Lolita in Downton.

0:23:440:23:46

-OK, so we've tried...

-Is Isabel in Downton?

0:23:480:23:50

-Is there a Cora in Downton?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:23:520:23:54

There's a Mary, Edith and Cora.

0:23:540:23:55

Try... We did...

0:23:550:23:58

Yeah.

0:23:580:24:00

-BUZZ

-OK.

0:24:000:24:02

-And Lolita?

-There's no Lolita in Downton.

0:24:060:24:09

So it's Cora or Mary.

0:24:090:24:10

Could be, couldn't it? Or it could be Mary.

0:24:100:24:13

Shall we go for one of these?

0:24:130:24:14

-We've tried...?

-No.

-We haven't tried this.

0:24:180:24:21

Shall we go for this? I don't think we can get any further.

0:24:210:24:24

BUZZ

0:24:240:24:25

That's it, that is your three lives.

0:24:250:24:27

But you found two groups and can you tell me the connection

0:24:270:24:30

in the first one, starting lilac?

0:24:300:24:32

They're all shades of purple.

0:24:320:24:33

All shades of purple.

0:24:330:24:35

And the green group - lily, cucumber, anemone, gooseberry?

0:24:350:24:38

If you put sea in front of them, you get a different sort of organism.

0:24:380:24:42

You can put sea in front of all of them.

0:24:420:24:44

You can still get points for the connections,

0:24:440:24:46

so let's resolve the wall.

0:24:460:24:47

There you go.

0:24:470:24:48

Mary, Bend Sinister, Pale Fire, Lolita?

0:24:480:24:52

We think these must be Nabokov works.

0:24:520:24:54

They are novels by Vladimir Nabokov.

0:24:540:24:56

And the last group - Violet, Edith, Cora, Isabel?

0:24:560:25:00

These are Downton Abbey characters.

0:25:000:25:01

They are the characters from Downton Abbey and Mary was the red herring.

0:25:010:25:05

So, two points for the groups and four for the connections,

0:25:050:25:07

that's a total of six.

0:25:070:25:09

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

0:25:090:25:12

So it's quite close and the outcome will be decided

0:25:180:25:20

in the missing vowels round.

0:25:200:25:22

Fingers on buzzers, teams.

0:25:220:25:24

The first group of disguised clues

0:25:240:25:26

are all things you might do if you're angry.

0:25:260:25:29

-Beaks?

-Rant and rave.

0:25:320:25:33

Correct.

0:25:330:25:34

-Detectives?

-Scream blue murder.

0:25:380:25:40

Correct.

0:25:400:25:41

Correct.

0:26:330:26:35

-Detectives?

-Quack.

0:26:520:26:54

Correct.

0:26:540:26:55

No time to tell me that the answer to that is leech

0:27:000:27:02

because the bell has gone for the end of the quiz.

0:27:020:27:05

And I can tell you that

0:27:050:27:08

the Beaks have 20 points,

0:27:080:27:10

the Detectives have...

0:27:100:27:12

..20 points! It is a tie-break.

0:27:120:27:13

No!

0:27:130:27:14

We haven't had one of those in this series so far.

0:27:140:27:17

How tense!

0:27:170:27:20

Teams, I will remind you that the rules of a tie-break are

0:27:200:27:23

there will be one decisive clue.

0:27:230:27:25

It is captains only.

0:27:250:27:27

The other team members will not contribute.

0:27:270:27:30

Captains, you buzz in when you think you know the answer.

0:27:300:27:32

If you're right, you automatically win the quiz.

0:27:320:27:34

If you're wrong, you automatically forfeit the quiz.

0:27:340:27:38

So...

0:27:380:27:39

..fingers on buzzers, captains.

0:27:390:27:42

Good luck.

0:27:420:27:44

The tie-breaker clue is coming in...now.

0:27:440:27:47

-Detectives?

-Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.

0:27:510:27:54

Is the right answer.

0:27:540:27:55

Very well done.

0:27:590:28:01

Oh, my goodness, what a close one.

0:28:010:28:02

You are through to the next round.

0:28:020:28:05

Beaks, I'm so sorry.

0:28:050:28:07

What an incredibly likeable team.

0:28:070:28:09

One of my absolute favourites from the series.

0:28:090:28:11

I'm really sorry you're going and it couldn't have been closer.

0:28:110:28:15

I think you knew the answer there?

0:28:150:28:17

Yeah, I was... Yeah, same time.

0:28:170:28:18

A fraction of a second too late.

0:28:180:28:20

But you've done brilliantly, you've done almost equally brilliantly.

0:28:200:28:24

Very well done.

0:28:240:28:25

That's right, there are no losers here.

0:28:250:28:28

Apart from those guys.

0:28:280:28:30

Goodbye.
