Hello and welcome to Only Connect,

0:00:210:00:23

coming to you from a studio haunted by the gaunt figure

0:00:230:00:27

of our former question editor, Mr Connor,

0:00:270:00:29

who has sadly passed over to the other side...

0:00:290:00:32

ITV, where his mental acuity and intellectual rigour

0:00:320:00:37

have proved a ratings disaster.

0:00:370:00:39

Two new teams tonight.

0:00:390:00:41

On my right, Jonathan Kershaw,

0:00:410:00:43

a self-described tree-hugging petrolhead

0:00:430:00:46

who works as an assistant manager in a betting shop,

0:00:460:00:49

Peter Barlow, a keen hill walker

0:00:490:00:52

who was photographed by a convoy of Japanese tourists

0:00:520:00:55

while patting a red deer on the nose,

0:00:550:00:57

and their captain, Brett Bostock,

0:00:570:01:00

a retired mental health manager

0:01:000:01:02

who has been appointed Grand Consorting Wizard

0:01:020:01:04

at Rochdale College.

0:01:040:01:06

United by a reverence for recycling,

0:01:060:01:07

they are the Eco-warriors.

0:01:070:01:09

I hear your Only Connect journey has already been a bit of an odyssey.

0:01:090:01:12

-What's that about?

-Well, our motto is "If at first you don't succeed,

0:01:120:01:16

-"try another five times."

-So you've auditioned five times before?

0:01:160:01:20

No, we applied five times,

0:01:200:01:23

we've auditioned three times

0:01:230:01:24

-and this time, we're here.

-Excellent.

0:01:240:01:27

Well, our standards have really gone down. No, they haven't!

0:01:270:01:29

You've got much better as a team.

0:01:290:01:31

Let's see how you fare tonight against, on my left,

0:01:310:01:35

Frank Paul, a pub quiz master

0:01:350:01:37

with a degree in Arabic and Islamic Studies,

0:01:370:01:40

who enjoys creating strange and surreal works of art using Biros,

0:01:400:01:45

Tom Rowell, a high school teaching assistant

0:01:450:01:47

who competed in the Great North Run

0:01:470:01:49

and was beaten by a man carrying a fridge on his back,

0:01:490:01:52

and their captain, Lydia Mizon,

0:01:520:01:54

an American Studies graduate,

0:01:540:01:56

who once came third in a competition requiring her

0:01:560:01:58

to guess the weight of a nun on a bicycle.

0:01:580:02:01

United by an appetite for escapology,

0:02:010:02:03

they are the Escapologists.

0:02:030:02:06

So, you're a team that enjoys cracking escape rooms.

0:02:060:02:09

What does that mean?

0:02:090:02:10

So, they are buildings where you are put in a room for 60 minutes

0:02:100:02:15

and you have to try and get out

0:02:150:02:17

using all the instruments at hand.

0:02:170:02:20

-Genuinely? It's not online? Real?

-No, you go to them in cities.

0:02:200:02:23

We try and do one in every city that we go to.

0:02:230:02:25

I'm very impressed.

0:02:250:02:27

Our escape route is not always 100% successful but it's good fun trying.

0:02:270:02:32

Normally, if you see a team name like Escapologists on this show,

0:02:320:02:35

it means they like to escape a thorny quiz question.

0:02:350:02:38

No, actual escapologists. Very impressive.

0:02:380:02:41

Eco-warriors, you won the toss. You'll be going first,

0:02:410:02:43

so please choose

0:02:430:02:45

-an Egyptian hieroglyph.

-Lion.

0:02:450:02:46

Lion. That will be the first question of the game.

0:02:460:02:50

Four apparently random clues

0:02:500:02:51

all have something in common.

0:02:510:02:53

What is it?

0:02:530:02:54

Here's the first.

0:02:540:02:56

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:02:570:03:00

-Italian artists.

-Yeah, shall we get another?

-Yes, I think so.

-Next.

0:03:000:03:06

-Airports.

-No, I think they're brothers-in-law.

-Ah.

0:03:090:03:13

-I'm going for it.

-Go on, then.

-BELL

0:03:130:03:17

I think these people are brothers-in-law.

0:03:170:03:20

Very well done.

0:03:200:03:21

Coming in after two clues,

0:03:210:03:22

you get three points.

0:03:220:03:23

You didn't need to see the next two clues.

0:03:230:03:26

What can you tell me about these people?

0:03:260:03:28

Who are the people in the first clue?

0:03:280:03:29

Well, Bellini was the Italian...

0:03:290:03:31

I presume, because it's Mantegna,

0:03:310:03:33

he'd be the sculptor, wouldn't he?

0:03:330:03:35

Renaissance. As in he was married

0:03:350:03:37

-to the painter's sister.

-Yeah.

0:03:370:03:39

Peter Lawford from the Rat Pack...

0:03:390:03:40

-Yeah. Was married to Kennedy's sister.

-That's right.

0:03:400:03:44

Frank Sinatra used to call him the Brother-In-Lawford.

0:03:440:03:47

Yes, Patricia Kennedy, he was married to.

0:03:470:03:49

And who are those people in the next clue?

0:03:490:03:51

The two England cricketers.

0:03:510:03:53

And I think everybody knows Prince Edward and Tim Laurence.

0:03:530:03:57

Vice Admiral Tim Laurence, married to Princess Anne.

0:03:570:04:00

Well quizzed, coming in early.

0:04:000:04:02

Escapologists, what would you like?

0:04:020:04:04

-Eye of Horus, please.

-Eye of Horus.

0:04:040:04:05

MUSICAL NOTE

0:04:050:04:07

Oh, it's a music question.

0:04:070:04:09

It's nice to get that out of the way, isn't it?

0:04:090:04:11

You'll be hearing your clues.

0:04:110:04:12

What links them? Here's the first.

0:04:120:04:14

# Within the woodlands, flowery gladed... #

0:04:140:04:20

Next, please.

0:04:200:04:22

# You're the top

0:04:230:04:25

# You're the Coliseum... #

0:04:260:04:28

Next? Next, please

0:04:280:04:30

# Abra, abracadabra... #

0:04:300:04:33

Steve Miller Band.

0:04:330:04:35

# I want to reach out and grab you... #

0:04:350:04:37

-Steve Miller Band?

-# Abra, abracadabra... #

0:04:370:04:41

Next, please.

0:04:410:04:42

# School's out for summer... #

0:04:420:04:47

-Is that Alice Cooper?

-Yeah.

0:04:470:04:49

# School's out forever... # Three seconds.

0:04:490:04:53

BELL

0:04:530:04:55

Go for it.

0:04:550:04:56

Do they all share their names with Labour MPs?

0:04:560:05:00

That's not the answer I'm looking for

0:05:000:05:01

and I'm just having a quick think.

0:05:010:05:03

No, they do not all share their names with Labour MPs.

0:05:030:05:06

So, Eco-warriors, chance of a bonus point.

0:05:060:05:09

We think they all have names

0:05:090:05:11

which relate to occupations.

0:05:110:05:13

Their names are those

0:05:130:05:15

of traditional trades.

0:05:150:05:16

Now, you, I think, recognised the Steve Miller Band

0:05:160:05:19

and were thinking of that old joke.

0:05:190:05:21

We thought you might be being clever.

0:05:210:05:23

Us, being clever?

0:05:230:05:24

We're far too clever to spell "Miliband" like that,

0:05:240:05:26

if it's names of MPs. Good guess though. What else did we hear?

0:05:260:05:30

-Alice Cooper.

-Mm-hmm.

0:05:300:05:31

-And...

-You're The Top's Cole Porter, isn't it?

0:05:310:05:34

Yeah, so porter, miller, cooper

0:05:340:05:36

and the first one, Dame Janet Baker.

0:05:360:05:38

-Ah.

-Yes, it's the names of traditional trades.

0:05:380:05:42

Did you know that a baker's dozen doesn't mean 13,

0:05:420:05:46

or it doesn't have to?

0:05:460:05:48

Do you know where it comes from, baker's dozen, the expression?

0:05:480:05:50

I believe it's to make sure

0:05:500:05:52

-that they made the agreed weight of bread.

-That's right,

0:05:520:05:54

because they'd be penalised

0:05:540:05:56

if they undersupplied,

0:05:560:05:57

if they sent underweight goods, so they added an extra loaf,

0:05:570:06:00

but sometimes it would be two loaves to go over the weight,

0:06:000:06:03

so it could be 14 or 15. It doesn't have to be 13.

0:06:030:06:04

My interesting fact of the day.

0:06:040:06:06

Well done, you get a bonus point.

0:06:060:06:08

Surnames of traditional trades.

0:06:080:06:09

-And you may now choose your own question.

-Horned Viper.

0:06:090:06:11

The Horned Viper. These are going to be picture clues.

0:06:110:06:14

Something connects them. What is it?

0:06:140:06:16

Time starts now.

0:06:160:06:18

THE ECO-WARRIORS LAUGH

0:06:200:06:21

Which car is it?

0:06:210:06:23

-Are they going to be musical terms?

-I have no idea.

-Next.

0:06:230:06:26

-I'm not even sure who he is.

-Oh...

0:06:290:06:33

He's the Italian singer chap, isn't he?

0:06:330:06:35

-Joe Dolce. Is it?

-Yeah?

0:06:350:06:39

-It might be.

-What's "dolce"?

-It's musical terms.

0:06:390:06:43

-Let's just go for it.

-BELL

0:06:430:06:45

We think they get their names from musical terms.

0:06:450:06:48

They share their names with musical terms. Very well done.

0:06:480:06:52

It was quite alarming the way they cackled at the first picture,

0:06:520:06:55

-wasn't it?

-It really was.

-Something chilling about that.

0:06:550:06:57

Why were you laughing when you saw the first clue?

0:06:570:06:59

-My dad had one and I learnt to drive in one.

-In one what?

0:06:590:07:02

-An Austin Allegro.

-It is an Austin Allegro.

0:07:020:07:05

I will always have a soft spot. They are much derided

0:07:050:07:07

but I'll always have a soft spot for the Austin Allegro.

0:07:070:07:09

Has the cruel nickname of All-aggro.

0:07:090:07:11

All-aggro.

0:07:110:07:13

Also an anagram of "A slug relation".

0:07:130:07:15

So, you recognised the Allegro and Joe Dolce,

0:07:170:07:20

and what about these clues you didn't need to see? What are they?

0:07:200:07:23

Oh, that's Largo from Thunderball.

0:07:230:07:25

-Mm-hmm.

-And piano.

0:07:250:07:27

Piano, that's exactly right.

0:07:270:07:29

Again, very well buzzed after just two clues.

0:07:290:07:32

So, some catching up to do, Escapologists.

0:07:320:07:34

Which question would you like?

0:07:340:07:36

-Twisted Flax, please.

-The Twisted Flax.

0:07:360:07:38

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

0:07:380:07:41

-So, he's...

-Hamlet.

-Yeah.

0:07:430:07:46

Next.

0:07:460:07:47

-Who's that?

-I don't know.

-Do you know who that is?

0:07:480:07:51

-No.

-I know the name. Next.

0:07:510:07:53

Oh, he was the guy that died in EastEnders.

0:07:550:07:58

He was murdered in the first episode.

0:07:580:08:00

OK, was Polonius the first person to die in Hamlet?

0:08:000:08:03

-He might be.

-Right...

0:08:030:08:05

Shall we do it?

0:08:050:08:07

I don't... So... Reg Cox was

0:08:070:08:08

the first ever person to die?

0:08:080:08:10

Yeah, he died in the first scene of EastEnders.

0:08:100:08:13

-OK, so maybe they're the first people to die...

-Oh, no, hang on.

0:08:130:08:16

BELL

0:08:170:08:19

-Go on.

-They're the first people

0:08:190:08:21

to die in whatever they're in.

0:08:210:08:23

They are the first people to die in famous works.

0:08:230:08:25

You didn't need to see the last one,

0:08:250:08:27

Abel from the Bible.

0:08:270:08:29

What can you tell me about these people?

0:08:290:08:30

Reg Cox dies in the very first scene

0:08:300:08:33

of the very first episode of EastEnders, I think.

0:08:330:08:35

-Who killed him?

-Was it Nick Cotton?

0:08:350:08:37

-It was Nick Cotton, yes.

-Oh, was it?

0:08:370:08:39

Bludgeoned him to death to steal

0:08:390:08:41

his war medals for drug money.

0:08:410:08:43

I don't think he dies in the show.

0:08:430:08:46

I think he's found dead

0:08:460:08:47

and Nick Cotton's done it.

0:08:470:08:48

What about that second clue?

0:08:480:08:50

I know the name but I don't... I can't put it to a...

0:08:500:08:53

-Game Of Thrones. First person to die in Game Of Thrones.

-Oh, my God!

0:08:530:08:56

-Polonius...

-Is Hamlet?

-Yes.

0:08:560:09:01

Polonius is in Hamlet.

0:09:010:09:03

Stabbed right through the arras. Very nasty.

0:09:030:09:06

First characters to die in famous works.

0:09:060:09:09

Eco-warriors, there is a last choice this round. What would you like?

0:09:090:09:13

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds.

0:09:130:09:15

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

0:09:150:09:18

Why the V?

0:09:200:09:22

What's that for?

0:09:220:09:23

-Could be five...

-Yeah.

-So...

0:09:230:09:26

Next, please.

0:09:280:09:30

Ah! It's... Yes.

0:09:330:09:35

-Go on.

-BELL

0:09:350:09:37

They can be preceded by MP, the bit in brackets.

0:09:370:09:41

I've got another question for you.

0:09:410:09:42

Why did it take you five attempts

0:09:420:09:44

to get on this show?

0:09:440:09:45

This is amazing quizzing!

0:09:450:09:47

MP goes before V to make a people carrier,

0:09:470:09:49

before 3 to make an audio format.

0:09:490:09:51

You didn't need to see the next ones,

0:09:510:09:53

MPG and measurement of speed, miles per hour.

0:09:530:09:56

Very, very good quizzing.

0:09:560:09:58

One question left for you, Escapologists. The Water question.

0:09:580:10:01

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

0:10:010:10:04

X and Y could be axis. They could be all X and Y,

0:10:060:10:09

-so it could be a Coldplay album.

-Next.

0:10:090:10:11

Oh. OK...

0:10:130:10:15

Axis... Shall we do next? Next.

0:10:160:10:20

It's the symbol for plus, minus, multiply and divide,

0:10:260:10:30

-so it's a line and two dots.

-It's not a sequence.

0:10:300:10:33

-Yeah, I think...

-BELL

0:10:330:10:35

You say it.

0:10:350:10:37

They're the symbols that make up

0:10:370:10:38

addition, subtraction,

0:10:380:10:40

multiplication and division.

0:10:400:10:42

That's exactly what it is. Very well spotted. Good quizzing from you too.

0:10:420:10:45

You didn't need to see the last one.

0:10:450:10:48

Can you just explain to me,

0:10:480:10:49

perhaps using a forefinger,

0:10:490:10:50

if you have to, how this question works?

0:10:500:10:53

So, vertical and horizontal

0:10:530:10:55

is like that.

0:10:550:10:56

-That's right.

-Horizontal.

0:10:560:10:58

-Yeah.

-Two diagonals.

-Yeah.

0:10:580:10:59

And horizontal between two dots.

0:10:590:11:01

That's a harder one to mime, the division sign.

0:11:010:11:04

Yes, basic arithmetic operators

0:11:040:11:06

represented by lines. Well done.

0:11:060:11:07

That means, at the end of round one...

0:11:070:11:09

Onto round two, the sequences round.

0:11:150:11:17

This time, the teams may see a maximum of three clues

0:11:170:11:19

because I want to know what would come fourth.

0:11:190:11:22

You'll be going first again, Eco-warriors.

0:11:220:11:24

Which hieroglyph would you like?

0:11:240:11:25

-Eye of Horus.

-The Eye of Horus.

0:11:250:11:27

You're going to see

0:11:270:11:28

the first in a sequence.

0:11:280:11:30

You may see two more if you like.

0:11:300:11:31

What comes fourth?

0:11:310:11:33

Your time starts now.

0:11:330:11:34

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:11:380:11:41

We'll have to see how the sequence runs. Next, please.

0:11:430:11:47

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:11:490:11:53

Do we think it's going to be

0:11:530:11:55

something like five vegetables, five fruit and veg a day?

0:11:550:11:58

-I think we'll have to see the next one before...

-OK.

0:11:580:12:00

-Yeah, next.

-Next.

0:12:000:12:02

-Oh, they're things to do for charity, aren't they?

-Oh, um...

0:12:040:12:10

What's next? Movember...

0:12:100:12:12

One second.

0:12:120:12:14

Oh, dear, the clock's run down.

0:12:140:12:17

That's the end of the question. I'm so sorry, you're out of time.

0:12:170:12:20

So, a bonus chance for you, Escapologists.

0:12:200:12:22

A charity challenge that you would do in December?

0:12:220:12:25

Well, I think you've solved the riddle,

0:12:250:12:27

so I'll give it to you but I'd love you to be more specific.

0:12:270:12:30

Can you think of one?

0:12:300:12:31

-Buy sponsored Christmas presents in some way?

-Good enough. Exactly.

0:12:310:12:35

Any kind of attempt to raise money

0:12:350:12:37

for charity in December. And why?

0:12:370:12:39

They are sponsored...

0:12:390:12:42

Well, not sponsored necessarily,

0:12:420:12:44

but personal challenges that you can set yourself in certain months.

0:12:440:12:47

So, Stoptober, Movember.

0:12:470:12:49

Do you know what the first one is?

0:12:490:12:51

-Steptember.

-Of course! Steptember, Stoptober,

0:12:510:12:54

Movember and, apparently,

0:12:540:12:56

-Decembeard is a thing.

-Ah.

0:12:560:12:58

Something you can do specifically in the month of December

0:12:580:13:01

to raise money for charity.

0:13:010:13:03

You get the bonus and would you like to choose your own question?

0:13:030:13:06

-Lion, please.

-Lion, OK.

0:13:060:13:07

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

0:13:070:13:10

-Middle name...

-Or Trump's children.

-Oh, yeah.

-Next.

0:13:120:13:15

Yes, it is. Who's the oldest?

0:13:170:13:19

-Donald Jr.

-Barron Trump.

0:13:190:13:20

He's quite young though.

0:13:200:13:22

No, Tiffany's the youngest, Eric is older.

0:13:220:13:24

Then there's Ivana and Donald, but I don't know which one is older.

0:13:240:13:27

Next, please.

0:13:270:13:29

BELL

0:13:290:13:31

-Donald Jr.

-Is the right answer.

0:13:310:13:34

And why would that be?

0:13:340:13:35

They are the children of Donald Trump from youngest to eldest,

0:13:350:13:40

although I think there's some younger than Tiffany.

0:13:400:13:42

These are the children of Donald Trump that we know about.

0:13:420:13:44

There are younger ones before Tiffany.

0:13:440:13:47

We're starting at Tiffany and getting older

0:13:470:13:49

and the older one is Donald Jr.

0:13:490:13:51

Which is your favourite of the Trump children?

0:13:510:13:53

Oh, um...

0:13:530:13:55

-Eric.

-I like Barron. He doesn't appear in the sequence.

0:13:560:13:59

I quite like Barron Trump.

0:13:590:14:01

He seems like a character in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

0:14:010:14:03

There's something about him.

0:14:030:14:05

He'd be falling into the sweets or something like that.

0:14:050:14:07

Yes, Donald Trump's children going up to the oldest one, Donald Jr.

0:14:070:14:10

Well done.

0:14:100:14:11

-Back to you, Eco-warriors, for a choice.

-Horned Viper, please.

0:14:110:14:14

Horned Viper, OK. These are going to be picture clues.

0:14:140:14:17

I want to know what sort of thing you'd expect to see

0:14:170:14:19

in the fourth picture. Here's the first.

0:14:190:14:21

-Nuts.

-Brazil nuts.

0:14:230:14:25

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:14:250:14:27

Next, please.

0:14:270:14:28

-That's Sean Connery.

-And that's The Moscow House.

0:14:300:14:36

Right.

0:14:360:14:37

Oh... Um, I think...

0:14:370:14:40

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:14:400:14:44

-Right, OK.

-Next.

0:14:470:14:49

Three seconds. BELL

0:14:570:15:00

I think we're going for anything with James Bond in.

0:15:000:15:03

I'm afraid that's not it.

0:15:030:15:05

Bonus chance for you, Escapologists.

0:15:050:15:07

-Something with China in it?

-For example?

0:15:070:15:10

-A china doll?

-A china doll.

0:15:100:15:12

There you go. We chose a china doll ourselves. And why is that?

0:15:120:15:16

-Um, what did we think?

-It's Brazil, Russia, India and then China.

0:15:160:15:21

It's population going up, is it?

0:15:210:15:23

Oh, it's not population.

0:15:230:15:25

It's the BRIC countries.

0:15:250:15:27

It's to do with countries of similar economic status,

0:15:270:15:29

so Brazil, Russia... It's a still from The Russia House, the film.

0:15:290:15:33

India pale ale. So, something from China. BRIC. A china doll.

0:15:330:15:37

Well done, you get the bonus point

0:15:370:15:39

and it's your turn for a question.

0:15:390:15:40

-Two Reeds, please.

-Two Reeds.

0:15:400:15:42

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

0:15:420:15:44

Next.

0:15:470:15:48

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:15:510:15:55

Next.

0:15:550:15:56

English jury has 12, so something with 13.

0:15:580:16:00

-Rugby league.

-A baker's dozen possibly.

0:16:000:16:02

BELL

0:16:020:16:04

A rugby league team.

0:16:040:16:06

And why would that be?

0:16:060:16:08

It has 13 people in it.

0:16:080:16:09

An acceptable answer. Well done.

0:16:090:16:12

I want to hear something with 13 people in it.

0:16:120:16:14

I heard you muttering about a baker's dozen. That's no good is it?

0:16:140:16:17

That could be 14 or 15 people,

0:16:170:16:18

not 13. What's going on here?

0:16:180:16:20

So, something with 10, 11,

0:16:200:16:22

12 and 13 people in it.

0:16:220:16:24

-A jury's got 12, field hockey team, 11.

-Exactly so.

0:16:240:16:27

A jury has 12 people in it

0:16:270:16:29

in Wales where we are.

0:16:290:16:30

I think it's 15 in Scotland.

0:16:300:16:31

Other parts of the world it's different, but here, it's 12 people.

0:16:310:16:34

-And what's a minyan?

-I have no idea.

0:16:340:16:36

-Do you know over there?

-No. Nine somethings.

0:16:360:16:39

-It's ten somethings.

-It's ten.

0:16:390:16:41

It's a quorum in Judaism.

0:16:410:16:43

You need ten men, if you're going to pray. A minyan. You need ten.

0:16:430:16:46

Very well done. And back to you, Eco-warriors. What would you like?

0:16:460:16:49

-Twisted Flax.

-The Twisted Flax, OK.

0:16:490:16:51

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

0:16:510:16:55

-Which way is it going?

-We'll have to see the next one.

-Next, please.

0:16:570:17:02

-Ah.

-Um...

0:17:030:17:05

-Is it GoldenEye?

-GoldenEye was Pierce Brosnan's first one.

0:17:070:17:12

-Roger Moore's first one.

-Licence To Kill.

-No.

0:17:120:17:15

No, that's Roger Moore's first one, that's Tim Dalton's first one.

0:17:150:17:18

-Right, so it's going...

-I think you can say Casino Royale.

0:17:180:17:21

BELL

0:17:210:17:22

-Casino Royale.

-Is the right answer.

0:17:220:17:25

Although I'm rather sorry you didn't try, on this one,

0:17:250:17:28

to say "Something with James Bond in it?"

0:17:280:17:30

Casino Royale is the right answer. Why is that?

0:17:300:17:32

They're the first Bond films

0:17:320:17:35

of each particular actor in that.

0:17:350:17:37

Exactly. So, which Bonds?

0:17:370:17:39

Live And Let Die, Roger Moore.

0:17:390:17:41

Living Daylights, Tim Dalton.

0:17:410:17:43

GoldenEye, Pierce Brosnan.

0:17:430:17:44

-Casino Royale, Daniel Craig.

-That's it.

0:17:440:17:47

We needed to hear what is the first appearance

0:17:470:17:50

of the next Bond, Daniel Craig,

0:17:500:17:52

and that would be Casino Royale.

0:17:520:17:54

Well done. Escapologists, one question left - Water.

0:17:540:17:58

What would come fourth in the Water sequence? Here's the first.

0:17:580:18:01

-Encumber or cucumber, maybe.

-Next.

0:18:040:18:06

-So, aardvark. So, double A or...

-So, cucumber... Double A, R.

0:18:080:18:14

Or encumber.

0:18:140:18:15

-It's Q, R, S, T.

-Q, R, S, T.

0:18:150:18:18

Something with T at the start.

0:18:180:18:20

Yeah, or T-E-E at the start.

0:18:200:18:22

-So, Teesside. Sside, because...

-BELL

0:18:220:18:27

-Sside.

-And why would that be?

0:18:270:18:29

Q-cumber, R-dvark...

0:18:290:18:32

-S something.

-S-capologists.

0:18:320:18:34

-Then T-sside.

-T-sside.

0:18:340:18:36

Very good. We went with S-pionage.

0:18:360:18:38

Very well done. You spotted the sequence. And T-pot as the answer.

0:18:380:18:41

So, we're missing homophones for Q, R, S

0:18:410:18:44

and something that would have begun with T,

0:18:440:18:47

like "teapot", or "Teesside". Very well spotted.

0:18:470:18:49

That means, at the end of round two...

0:18:490:18:52

Connecting Wall time now. 16 jumbled up clues

0:18:590:19:01

that the teams need to sort into four connected groups of four.

0:19:010:19:04

Escapologists, you'll be going first this time.

0:19:040:19:07

You've got the choice - Lion or Water?

0:19:070:19:09

Lion, please.

0:19:090:19:11

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

0:19:110:19:15

-OK.

-They're pets from Blue Peter.

-Yeah, they are. Kari.

0:19:170:19:20

-Cookie was one.

-Yeah. Socks.

0:19:200:19:22

-BUZZ

-Socks became Cookie.

0:19:220:19:23

-They changed the name. Willow sounds like one.

-Go on, then.

0:19:230:19:27

Caroline Aherne, Ricky Tomlinson are from the Royle Family.

0:19:270:19:30

-BUZZ

-Yes, so's Craig Cash.

0:19:300:19:33

-And Sue Johnston.

-Nice.

0:19:340:19:36

OK, so you've got Kari and Oke. Cookie...

0:19:360:19:41

-And... We tried Willow, didn't we?

-Yeah.

-And Socks isn't right.

0:19:420:19:45

-BUZZ

-So, one of these must be.

0:19:450:19:47

-There you go.

-Three lives now.

0:19:470:19:49

-So, we've got...

-I can't remember where Bruton is.

0:19:490:19:52

-It's in the North somewhere.

-OK.

-In Cumbria.

0:19:520:19:55

-It's probably a person's name as well.

-Yeah.

0:19:550:19:57

There's a folk song called Bruton Town which is rather good.

0:19:570:19:59

Is he an actor?

0:19:590:20:01

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:20:010:20:03

Are these things that are missing letters?

0:20:030:20:05

-Like Nort is North or Snort.

-Nort is a homophone for naught, the number.

0:20:050:20:11

-Oh, yes.

-But I can't think of another.

-Roe is another homophone.

0:20:110:20:14

-Well, Oke is a homophone of a tree.

-Roe is a homophone...

0:20:170:20:21

-Or is that just a tree?

-Um...

0:20:230:20:26

-Do you think there's four soaps?

-Yeah...

0:20:280:20:32

Karaoke...

0:20:320:20:34

-She designed a wedding dress for someone.

-No, that's Burton.

0:20:430:20:47

-You've got a minute left.

-OK.

0:20:470:20:48

-Cow-en or Coe-en. How do you pronounce that?

-I guess Cow-en.

0:20:490:20:56

-What about the bottom one?

-I don't know. Haughey.

0:20:560:20:58

They might be in Cumbria or somewhere, I don't know.

0:20:580:21:02

-I really think this is an anagram of "torn".

-Yeah.

0:21:020:21:05

An anagram of "Tron". That's an anagram of "ore".

0:21:050:21:08

Oke and Roe sound like they could be anagrams.

0:21:080:21:10

That's an anagram of Burton.

0:21:100:21:13

-Could they be surnames?

-Shall we guess at something?

-Yeah.

0:21:140:21:17

30 seconds.

0:21:170:21:18

Those four?

0:21:190:21:22

BUZZ

0:21:220:21:23

Rome would be missing...

0:21:250:21:28

There's an Oke for Oklahoma.

0:21:280:21:30

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:21:320:21:35

-Ten seconds.

-Shall we try something else?

-Yeah.

-What shall we try?

0:21:350:21:38

We'd better do it quickly.

0:21:380:21:39

That's it, you've solved the Wall!

0:21:410:21:43

-Possibly by accident.

-Completely by accident!

0:21:430:21:45

Let's see, when we look for the connections.

0:21:450:21:47

The first blue group.

0:21:470:21:49

Surnames of actors in The Royle Family.

0:21:510:21:54

Actors in that TV show, The Royle Family. Quite right.

0:21:540:21:57

What about the green group, starting Kari?

0:21:570:22:00

-They are pets on Blue Peter.

-They are. Can you be more specific?

0:22:000:22:04

-Cats?

-They are cats, Blue Peter cats, absolutely right.

0:22:040:22:07

And the next group?

0:22:070:22:08

Bruton, Cowen, Kenny and Haughey?

0:22:080:22:11

Are they presidents of Ireland?

0:22:110:22:14

Ooh, I'm very sorry. You're so close, but it's not.

0:22:140:22:17

It's Irish Taoisighs and they're not presidents.

0:22:170:22:19

That is a completely different set of people.

0:22:190:22:21

I'm sorry, I can't take it.

0:22:210:22:23

Onto the next group. Oke, Roe, Little, Nort.

0:22:230:22:27

They can be followed by "hampton" to make place names.

0:22:270:22:30

-They absolutely can.

-Ah, that's good stuff!

0:22:300:22:32

Okehampton, Littlehampton, Nort becomes Northampton, of course.

0:22:320:22:36

But you found all four groups

0:22:360:22:37

and you got three connections. That is a total of seven points.

0:22:370:22:40

Time to bring in the Eco-warriors now,

0:22:400:22:42

give them a new Connecting Wall, the Water Wall,

0:22:420:22:44

see what they can do about solving it.

0:22:440:22:47

You have two and a half minutes

0:22:470:22:49

to attack this Water Wall, starting now.

0:22:490:22:52

Right, Chania's on Crete.

0:22:540:22:56

-Um...

-That's a bun, a bread thing.

0:22:560:22:59

That's a bread thing... Is there a Belgian one?

0:22:590:23:03

-Chelsea.

-Chelsea.

-Try that one again.

0:23:030:23:06

-BUZZ

-No, that's not it. Um...

0:23:070:23:10

-I need another bun.

-Sally Lunn.

-We have..

-She can't be anything else.

0:23:100:23:14

INDISTINGUISHABLE

0:23:140:23:17

-BUZZ

-Right, we have yoghurts.

0:23:190:23:21

We have Ski, Oykos, Muller and Onken.

0:23:210:23:25

-Onken at the top.

-BUZZ

0:23:250:23:26

-That's not it.

-Not that group.

-Right.

0:23:260:23:29

-Right, so we've got Patras.

-Yeah.

-Larissa..

-Chania.

-Chania.

0:23:290:23:33

And try Volos.

0:23:330:23:35

-Yes!

-Get the buns.

0:23:350:23:38

-Chelsea, Sally Lunn...

-Sally Lunn. Hot Cross...

-Hot cross.

0:23:380:23:43

Um...

0:23:430:23:44

-Colston.

-Try, yeah.

0:23:470:23:48

-BUZZ

-Not that one.

0:23:480:23:50

-Go-go.

-There isn't a Belgian one.

0:23:500:23:52

-We've had the Belgian one.

-Right.

0:23:520:23:54

-Cowboy.

-Yeah.

-Go-go...

0:23:540:23:56

Colston...

0:23:580:24:00

-Are they boots?

-Chelsea boots...

0:24:010:24:03

-BUZZ

-Chelsea boots, cowboy boots.

0:24:030:24:05

-Go-go boots, I'm guessing.

-Yeah.

-Ski boots.

-Ski boots.

0:24:050:24:09

-Yes, OK.

-Three lives now. Jab with care.

0:24:090:24:12

I think it might be Onken, Oykos, um, Muller and...

0:24:120:24:17

-Is there a Belgian?

-Oh, Total. That's Greek yoghurt.

0:24:170:24:20

-Total.

-Get the yoghurts.

-Muller, Onken and Oykos.

0:24:200:24:25

You've solved the Wall! Very well done.

0:24:250:24:28

And you'll get extra points if you can tell me the connections.

0:24:280:24:31

What about that first blue group?

0:24:310:24:32

I'm not even going to try to pronounce it.

0:24:320:24:34

Perhaps you'd like to have a go.

0:24:340:24:36

They are major towns on Greek islands.

0:24:360:24:40

-They're cities.

-Cities.

0:24:400:24:41

But towns are... A city's a sort of town, so I'll give you that.

0:24:410:24:45

And the green group?

0:24:450:24:47

They're all boots of one kind or another.

0:24:490:24:51

-You weren't familiar with the go-go boot?

-No.

-I vaguely remember them.

0:24:510:24:55

My card says they're women's knee-high boots

0:24:550:24:57

-but who's so specific these days?

-Ah, well.

-These days, yeah.

0:24:570:25:00

What about the next group? Onken, Muller, Oykos, Total.

0:25:000:25:04

-They make yoghurts.

-They are yoghurts.

0:25:040:25:06

And the last one, Sally Lunn, Colston, Belgian, Hot cross?

0:25:060:25:10

-They're buns.

-They are all buns, types of bun. Very well done.

0:25:100:25:14

Four points for the groups, four for the connections.

0:25:140:25:16

That is a total of eight

0:25:160:25:18

and the bonus for getting it all right, it's a maximum of ten.

0:25:180:25:21

Let's have a look at the scores as we go into the final round.

0:25:210:25:24

It is a very close match and, of course, in round four,

0:25:310:25:34

you can lose points as well as gaining them.

0:25:340:25:36

It's the Missing Vowels round, where we take well-known names, phrases

0:25:360:25:40

or sayings, take out the vowels and squidge together the consonants.

0:25:400:25:44

On the plus side, I will tell you the connections up front.

0:25:440:25:47

On the minus side, if you get it wrong by so much as one letter,

0:25:470:25:50

I will take a point away, so buzz with care.

0:25:500:25:54

Fingers on the bells then, teams.

0:25:540:25:56

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

0:25:560:25:59

-Mobile phone number.

-Correct.

0:26:050:26:07

-Company logo.

-Correct.

0:26:100:26:13

-Twitter handle.

-You put that on a business card? Correct.

0:26:160:26:19

-Job title.

-Correct.

0:26:220:26:24

Next category.

0:26:240:26:26

-Sunderland and SR.

-Correct.

0:26:320:26:35

Swansea and S...A?

0:26:390:26:41

Not it, I'm afraid. Eco-warriors, do you know?

0:26:410:26:44

-Swansea and SA.

-Yes, that was too slow, I'm afraid. Next clue.

0:26:440:26:47

This is a tricky one.

0:26:520:26:54

Next clue.

0:26:560:26:57

No? It's...

0:27:030:27:04

Next category.

0:27:060:27:08

-Birth of Vera Lynn.

-Correct.

0:27:130:27:15

-The Balfour Declaration.

-Correct.

0:27:200:27:22

MUSIC SIGNALS END OF ROUND

0:27:260:27:29

That clue was...

0:27:290:27:31

The spy, of course. But too late

0:27:340:27:36

because the bell has gone. It's the end of the quiz

0:27:360:27:38

and I can tell you that the winners and through to the next round,

0:27:380:27:41

with 27 points,

0:27:410:27:42

are the Eco-warriors.

0:27:420:27:44

In second place, with 23,

0:27:440:27:46

it's the Escapologists.

0:27:460:27:48

Under our new system,

0:27:480:27:49

the highest-scoring finishers in round one, just two teams,

0:27:490:27:52

will go through to the next round.

0:27:520:27:54

Escapologists, that's a very good score.

0:27:540:27:56

I think it's a very good chance

0:27:560:27:58

that you will escape from exit

0:27:580:28:00

and get through to the next round,

0:28:000:28:01

so we might be seeing you again.

0:28:010:28:03

Thank you for playing. Thank you for playing too.

0:28:030:28:05

And as I alluded to, at the top of the show,

0:28:050:28:07

we have a new question editor, Mr Waley-Cohen,

0:28:070:28:09

so thanks to him too. "What's he like?", I hear you ask.

0:28:090:28:13

A god, magnificent, intense at first,

0:28:130:28:17

ultimately sensuous, a fabled swordsman.

0:28:170:28:21

Six letters. It's his favourite crossword clue.

0:28:210:28:23

He loves doing them as he rests his bad back.

0:28:230:28:26

The answer's Aramis, by the way. Goodbye.
