Hello and welcome to Only Connect,

0:00:210:00:23

the quiz show recently described

0:00:230:00:25

as the finest programme on British television.

0:00:250:00:27

I'm not sure by whom, since it was anonymous and on the internet.

0:00:270:00:31

But then, any opinion worth listening to nowadays usually is.

0:00:310:00:34

The show has also been described by some commentators

0:00:340:00:38

as strangely free from applause and laughter.

0:00:380:00:41

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha(!)

0:00:410:00:43

Happy now? I know I'm not.

0:00:430:00:45

This is a quarter final, so we've got some returning teams.

0:00:450:00:48

Starting with, on my right,

0:00:480:00:50

Andrew Lyman, chemistry graduate

0:00:500:00:53

and rugby league fan,

0:00:530:00:54

who now works as a shift manager in a chemical plant.

0:00:540:00:57

Jane Teather, a Cambridge graduate

0:00:570:00:59

and crossword obsessive

0:00:590:01:00

who now works as an information design consultant.

0:01:000:01:03

And their captain, Dave Tilley,

0:01:030:01:06

a Liverpool supporter who assesses football referees

0:01:060:01:09

and enjoys playing bridge.

0:01:090:01:10

They all enjoy The Listener crossword.

0:01:100:01:13

They are the Listeners.

0:01:130:01:15

Dave, you beat the Steel City Singers in your heat.

0:01:150:01:17

How have you prepared for this?

0:01:170:01:19

After the group therapy we went into because we were surprised at winning,

0:01:190:01:23

we then spent a lot of time tackling more crosswords, surprisingly.

0:01:230:01:26

Well, you may be using those skills tonight to beat, on my left,

0:01:260:01:33

Jason Gray, an Oxford history graduate

0:01:330:01:34

and dedicated supporter of Harlequins Rugby Club.

0:01:340:01:38

Dominic Guinness, a keen chef,

0:01:380:01:40

gardener, swimmer and triathlete,

0:01:400:01:42

who also works as an IT development manager.

0:01:420:01:45

And their captain, Chris Harrison,

0:01:450:01:48

an amateur athlete with a PhD in computing,

0:01:480:01:50

currently training for the London Marathon.

0:01:500:01:52

They've come ashore to join us in the quarter finals.

0:01:520:01:55

They are the Rowers.

0:01:550:01:56

Chris, you beat the Linguists in your heat. How did that match go?

0:01:560:02:00

Um...reasonably well until the wheels almost came off

0:02:000:02:03

in the last round, but we held onto it.

0:02:030:02:05

Well, let's see how you manage to cling on in these quarter finals.

0:02:050:02:09

Later on in the show the connecting wall will be going live online.

0:02:090:02:12

So if you fancy playing along,

0:02:120:02:14

you'll probably need some form of electronic equipment.

0:02:140:02:17

But as long as you've got a television you'll love round one,

0:02:170:02:20

This is where I want to know the connections between various clues.

0:02:200:02:24

Rowers, you won the toss, but you put the Listeners in first.

0:02:240:02:27

So Dave, please pick an Egyptian hieroglyph.

0:02:270:02:30

-Twisted facts, please.

-Twisted facts.

0:02:300:02:34

The music question immediately.

0:02:340:02:36

You'll hear the clues. What's the connection?

0:02:360:02:38

The first one coming in...now.

0:02:380:02:40

Music: "Fanfare for the Common Man" by EMERSON, LAKE AND PALMER

0:02:420:02:44

Next one, please.

0:02:470:02:49

# All aboard the train

0:02:490:02:53

# All aboard the train

0:02:530:02:58

# I've been saving all my money... #

0:02:580:03:03

Bands known by their initials. Crosby, Stills and Nash, CS...

0:03:030:03:07

I'm going to stop you. I'm afraid that's not the right answer.

0:03:070:03:11

So I'm going to play a blast of each of the remaining two clues

0:03:110:03:14

to the Rowers for a possible bonus.

0:03:140:03:16

Have a listen to this.

0:03:160:03:19

# After the love has gone. #

0:03:190:03:23

Three words - Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Earth, Wind and Fire..

0:03:230:03:26

# Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail. #

0:03:260:03:32

This is Peter, Paul and Mary, isn't it?

0:03:320:03:35

Is it bands that are three words? Three names?

0:03:350:03:39

It is bands that are referred to by three names.

0:03:390:03:43

The trap you fell into there, Listeners, is the second one.

0:03:430:03:46

Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young,

0:03:460:03:47

but old Young not credited on that particular track.

0:03:470:03:50

So we heard Emerson, Lake and Palmer,

0:03:500:03:53

Crosby Stills and Nash,

0:03:530:03:54

Earth, Wind and Fire, Peter, Paul and Mary, three names.

0:03:540:03:57

So a bonus point to you, Rowers. You may now pick your own question.

0:03:570:04:00

-Water, please.

-OK.

0:04:000:04:04

First clue coming up, now.

0:04:040:04:06

Spanish prisoner. Dilemma. Puzzles.

0:04:060:04:09

-Will we just go with that one?

-Let's try one more.

0:04:090:04:12

One more? One more, please. Next.

0:04:120:04:17

-Boiler room.

-It's hoping you're not going to win, isn't it?

0:04:170:04:20

-So they're puzzles - philosophical puzzles?

-Yeah.

0:04:200:04:24

They're all sort of philosophical puzzles

0:04:240:04:28

around being locked in a room?

0:04:280:04:30

Or thought experiments inside your own head?

0:04:300:04:34

I'm afraid that is not the correct answer.

0:04:340:04:36

Time for some thought experiments

0:04:360:04:38

in the heads of the Listeners. Here are the other two clues.

0:04:380:04:43

-Andy.

-Oh, thanks.

0:04:430:04:45

They are...they are...

0:04:450:04:48

methods for...

0:04:480:04:49

buying and selling shares.

0:04:490:04:53

I'm afraid they're not. Now this is the quarter final.

0:04:530:04:56

So I'm not going to be lenient. A couple are to do with shares.

0:04:560:04:58

More generally they are financial swindles.

0:04:580:05:02

Mock auction is where someone is put in the crowd at an auction,

0:05:020:05:06

a friend of the seller, to make a bid.

0:05:060:05:08

Pump and dump, inflating share prices, selling them off.

0:05:080:05:11

Boiler room also to do with shares,

0:05:110:05:13

that's an artificial high pressure environment against gullible people.

0:05:130:05:17

And Spanish prisoner, that's the old one,

0:05:170:05:20

somebody in prison in Spain or a foreign country,

0:05:200:05:23

if you pay their bail, you get money later.

0:05:230:05:26

You, I think, were thinking of the prisoner's dilemma.

0:05:260:05:28

-Exactly.

-No, financial swindles.

0:05:280:05:31

But in a way, I'm reassured that none of you knew them.

0:05:310:05:34

What lovely people you are.

0:05:340:05:35

For me, of course, amazingly familiar.

0:05:350:05:38

Listeners, it's your turn to pick a question.

0:05:380:05:41

-Two reeds, please.

-OK. What's the connection here?

0:05:410:05:44

They're going to be picture clues. Here's the first one.

0:05:440:05:47

-Steve...

-Alberto Tomba.

-No, it's not.

0:05:490:05:52

-It's the snowboarder.

-Tony Hawk?

-No, I can't remember his name.

0:05:520:05:56

Next one, please.

0:05:560:05:58

-It's not Guernica, is it?

-No, it's definitely not Guernica.

0:06:010:06:05

Next one? Next one, please.

0:06:050:06:08

-Bat.

-Horseshoe bat?

0:06:090:06:12

-Ten seconds.

-Next one, please.

0:06:160:06:19

Spitfire, Wellington, Lancaster. Dukes?

0:06:190:06:23

-Three seconds.

-Dukes.

0:06:230:06:26

-Dukes?

-Dukes of Wellington, Lancaster.

0:06:260:06:31

-Bat!

-Ah, the old Duke of Bat!

0:06:310:06:36

I'm afraid you're miles away, so there's a possible bonus for the Rowers.

0:06:360:06:39

Not a possible social gathering.

0:06:390:06:43

Um, bat, White, Turner.

0:06:430:06:45

No, I'm sorry, that's far too long. That first picture is a fellow called Sean White,

0:06:450:06:51

a snowboarder more commonly known as the Flying Tomato.

0:06:510:06:55

Next along is a painting of the Flying Dutchman.

0:06:550:06:57

A fruit bat, otherwise known as a flying fox,

0:06:570:06:59

and the B12 bomber, flying fortress. Flying is the connection there.

0:06:590:07:04

So no bonus for you, Rowers, but you may pick a question.

0:07:040:07:07

-The Horned viper, please.

-OK. First clue coming up, now.

0:07:070:07:12

Steiff, they're teddy bears, aren't they? Yeah.

0:07:120:07:16

Next, please.

0:07:160:07:19

Veuve Clicquot. Are they brands?

0:07:190:07:23

Or are they eponymous brands named after things?

0:07:230:07:26

Veuve Clicquot.

0:07:260:07:29

Let's get the next one. Next please.

0:07:320:07:35

Next please. We've got the next one.

0:07:350:07:38

-Deutsche Grammophon isn't...

-Ten seconds.

0:07:380:07:42

Next please.

0:07:440:07:48

Three seconds.

0:07:480:07:50

I'm afraid you're out of time. So, possible bonus again now, Listeners.

0:07:520:07:57

They were all founded in the same year.

0:07:570:07:59

They were not all founded in the same year.

0:07:590:08:02

This is the kind of one that is easier when you look back

0:08:020:08:05

than when you look forward. These all have yellow labels.

0:08:050:08:10

Steiff Teddy Bears have the little yellow label. Deutsche Grammophon,

0:08:100:08:14

Boddington's, Veuve Clicquot drinks with yellow labels.

0:08:140:08:18

It's all very well sighing and kicking yourselves now.

0:08:180:08:21

What about the points, points, points?

0:08:210:08:23

Listeners, can you get some on the next go?

0:08:230:08:25

-We'll try. Eh, with the eye of Horus, please.

-OK.

0:08:250:08:29

Eye of Hours winking at you any second now.

0:08:290:08:32

Second President.

0:08:370:08:41

Next one please. Impeachment?

0:08:430:08:46

I don't think Adams was impeached, was he?

0:08:470:08:50

-I'm not good on history.

-Next one please.

0:08:500:08:53

Oh, dear.

0:08:550:08:58

-Ah! Are they all roles played...

-Ten seconds.

-Yeah, go on, yeah.

0:09:010:09:04

They're roles played by Anthony Hopkins.

0:09:040:09:08

Coming in after three clues, you get two points.

0:09:080:09:10

The last one would have been CS Lewis.

0:09:100:09:13

They were played by Sir Anthony Hopkins in Amistad, Nixon,

0:09:130:09:17

The Road to Wellville and Shadowlands.

0:09:170:09:20

Well done. You're off the blocks at last.

0:09:200:09:22

With only one question remaining for the Rowers, it's lion.

0:09:220:09:25

First clue coming up now.

0:09:250:09:27

Next please.

0:09:350:09:37

-It's Dr Seuss, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:09:390:09:43

Yeah, but that's not going to be the link, is it? Next please.

0:09:430:09:50

Oh, it's questions asked of...

0:09:500:09:53

-It's books, isn't it?

-Ten seconds.

0:09:560:09:59

Next please.

0:09:590:10:00

-Was that a comedian?

-That was Tony Hawks.

0:10:000:10:04

Three seconds.

0:10:040:10:05

BELL

0:10:050:10:06

Books by comedians.

0:10:060:10:08

Very much not.

0:10:080:10:10

Listeners, a chance for a bonus.

0:10:100:10:12

-Jane, take it.

-Is it questions...

0:10:120:10:16

..terms typed into Google that don't yield... Googlewhacks.

0:10:160:10:22

I know what you're thinking of, Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure.

0:10:220:10:26

That was his next book.

0:10:260:10:27

It's not that.

0:10:270:10:28

These were all things that were written as the result of a bet.

0:10:280:10:33

There were comedians involved. Tony Hawks took a bet

0:10:330:10:36

that he couldn't go round Ireland with a fridge.

0:10:360:10:38

Dave Gorman was bet by a friend he couldn't find 54 people with his name.

0:10:380:10:41

Green Eggs And Ham by Dr Seuss,

0:10:410:10:44

you're meant to pronounce it "soice" but nobody does.

0:10:440:10:47

That was bet that he couldn't only use 50 words throughout a book.

0:10:470:10:51

The first one, not a comedian.

0:10:510:10:55

Ernest Hemingway was bet

0:10:550:10:57

that he couldn't write a short story

0:10:570:10:59

in six words only.

0:10:590:11:01

And that story is the result.

0:11:010:11:04

'For sale: baby shoes, never worn'.

0:11:040:11:07

Right, that is the end of Round One.

0:11:090:11:11

Our teams have struggled a bit.

0:11:110:11:13

The Rowers have got one point.

0:11:130:11:15

But The Listeners are ahead with two.

0:11:150:11:17

It's not getting easier in the next round, because here,

0:11:190:11:22

the teams have to work out the connections and then tell me what comes fourth in a sequence.

0:11:220:11:27

Listeners, going first again.

0:11:270:11:29

Which hieroglyph would you like?

0:11:290:11:31

The two reeds, please.

0:11:310:11:32

OK. What is fourth in this sequence?

0:11:320:11:35

The first one coming up now.

0:11:350:11:37

1215.

0:11:390:11:40

1215.

0:11:410:11:42

Next one, please.

0:11:440:11:45

1415. 1215, 1415, 1615. What happened in 1815?

0:11:460:11:52

Was that the Battle of Waterloo or Austerlitz, or...

0:11:520:11:57

Don't do me on dates.

0:11:570:12:00

It's something that happened in 1815.

0:12:000:12:02

We don't need to get another clue.

0:12:030:12:05

-Ten seconds.

-...started in 1812.

0:12:070:12:08

I think it's just something that follows from that.

0:12:080:12:11

-Just make a guess.

-Duke of Wellington died?

-Waterloo.

0:12:110:12:13

-Three seconds.

-BUZZER

0:12:130:12:15

Waterloo, Battle of.

0:12:150:12:17

Good decision. I think you know

0:12:170:12:19

they are things that happened in 1215, 1415...

0:12:190:12:22

In 1615, the next clue, Volume Two of Don Quixote was published,

0:12:220:12:25

and in 1815, yes, that's what happened. The battle of Waterloo.

0:12:250:12:30

You got the points. Well done. Back to you, Rowers, to pick a question.

0:12:300:12:34

-Lion, please.

-OK.

0:12:340:12:35

First in a sequence coming up. What's fourth? Time starts now.

0:12:350:12:39

McKinley. It's the highest point on that continent.

0:12:410:12:44

But what's the sequence? Next, please.

0:12:440:12:47

Vinson Massif, that's...also the highest point, isn't it?

0:12:480:12:52

-That's in Antarctica.

-The four highest points...

0:12:520:12:55

-..leading up, so...

-It'll be Everest.

0:12:550:12:57

Will it be Everest next?

0:12:570:12:59

-No, Everest last.

-Yeah, will Everest come last?

0:13:000:13:03

Yeah, but. No, but... I don't think they're going to necessarily...

0:13:030:13:08

-Do you want to go next?

-Ten seconds.

0:13:080:13:10

OK. Ten seconds. Next.

0:13:100:13:12

-Cerro.

-Three seconds.

0:13:140:13:16

BELL

0:13:160:13:17

Everest.

0:13:170:13:19

I'm afraid not.

0:13:190:13:20

Bonus opportunity for The Listeners.

0:13:200:13:23

Andy, please.

0:13:230:13:24

Kilimanjaro.

0:13:240:13:25

That is the right answer. Do you know the reason?

0:13:250:13:29

They are, respectably, the highest points in various continents,

0:13:290:13:33

going from the lowest to the less low. Higher.

0:13:330:13:37

That's broadly right.

0:13:370:13:40

Just biggest ones, that wouldn't be the right sequence.

0:13:400:13:42

They're the highest mountains on their respective continents

0:13:420:13:46

going west to east.

0:13:460:13:47

So, Mount McKinley for North America,

0:13:470:13:49

then going to Antarctica, South America and Mount Kilimanjaro,

0:13:490:13:52

highest in Africa.

0:13:520:13:53

Well done for the bonus.

0:13:530:13:56

Your turn, Listeners.

0:13:560:13:57

The Eye of Horus, please.

0:13:570:13:58

OK, first in a sequence coming up. What's fourth?

0:13:580:14:01

Time starts now.

0:14:010:14:03

Letters, epistles.

0:14:050:14:07

I don't know which...

0:14:090:14:11

The books of the New Testament.

0:14:110:14:13

Corinthians, the epistles.

0:14:150:14:18

Next one, please.

0:14:180:14:20

The books going backwards.

0:14:220:14:25

Third epistle of Corinthians, second epistle,

0:14:250:14:27

first epistle of the Corinthians...

0:14:270:14:29

-Romans?

-Or is it Acts?

0:14:290:14:31

10 seconds.

0:14:310:14:33

Acts of the Apostles.

0:14:330:14:35

Acts and Romans?

0:14:350:14:37

BELL

0:14:370:14:38

Romans, first Romans.

0:14:400:14:42

I'm afraid not.

0:14:420:14:43

I'm going to show the third in the sequence to the Rowers.

0:14:430:14:47

Is it Olympic? Yeah, but is it Corinthian...

0:14:470:14:50

-That's enough chat. Do you've an answer?

-Doric.

0:14:500:14:53

You're right, it is Doric. That came from nowhere.

0:14:530:14:56

Yes, it's nothing to do with the Bible.

0:14:560:14:58

This is architectural styles of the Coliseum.

0:14:580:15:01

The clue, third, second, it's going downwards so down from first.

0:15:010:15:05

If it were a lift, it would be the ground or bottom, would be Doric.

0:15:050:15:08

Did you just guess that from nowhere?

0:15:080:15:11

-I was being advised from my left.

-It was good advice.

0:15:110:15:14

You should ask him about your love life.

0:15:140:15:17

Very well done, you get the bonus. You may now pick your own question.

0:15:170:15:20

-Twisted flax, please.

-OK. First in a sequence coming up,

0:15:200:15:23

I can tell you these are going to the picture clues.

0:15:230:15:26

What might you expect to see in the fourth picture?

0:15:260:15:28

The first one coming up now.

0:15:280:15:30

Safari? Next.

0:15:320:15:34

Is it a roll cage?

0:15:400:15:42

Is it going to be chassis or something?

0:15:420:15:45

Next.

0:15:450:15:47

-Fox.

-It's a raccoon.

0:15:490:15:51

Fender, raccoon.

0:15:530:15:55

10 seconds.

0:15:580:16:00

Is it Safari, Chrome, Firefox?

0:16:000:16:02

BELL

0:16:020:16:03

-Internet Explorer.

-I'm going to give it to you.

0:16:030:16:06

I'd have liked to hear I'd expect to see a picture

0:16:060:16:08

of an explorer or perhaps a man with a nice hat

0:16:080:16:11

and a magnifying glass. They are the four main internet browsers,

0:16:110:16:15

increasing order of popularity.

0:16:150:16:17

Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Well done.

0:16:170:16:20

Back to you now, Listeners.

0:16:200:16:23

-Horned viper, please.

-OK.

0:16:230:16:25

What's this sequence and what comes fourth?

0:16:250:16:28

First one coming up now.

0:16:280:16:30

Next one, please.

0:16:310:16:33

Carry on?

0:16:390:16:41

Is it not a granule of wheat?

0:16:420:16:44

Let's carry on.

0:16:440:16:46

Next one, please.

0:16:460:16:48

Doglike?

0:16:480:16:50

10 seconds.

0:16:590:17:01

-I can't see anything there at all.

-Nor me.

-Three seconds.

0:17:040:17:07

Catlike.

0:17:070:17:09

That's not the correct answer, so there's a bonus chance

0:17:090:17:12

for you, Rowers.

0:17:120:17:13

Before doglike.

0:17:150:17:17

And what do you think the sequence is?

0:17:170:17:19

We'd like you to answer that for us.

0:17:190:17:22

You might have been able to work it out from the moment when you said

0:17:230:17:28

doglike is canine. That's right.

0:17:280:17:30

Another way to express millstone would be molar.

0:17:300:17:33

That would mean before millstone, premolar.

0:17:330:17:36

And continuing along the mouth, incisor translated as cutter.

0:17:360:17:40

They are the meanings for the words describing human teeth.

0:17:400:17:43

So no points there. Rowers, what can you do with the last question?

0:17:430:17:48

It's water. That should suit you. The first clue is coming up now.

0:17:480:17:52

Could be anything.

0:17:540:17:55

Next, please.

0:17:550:17:57

Next, please.

0:18:060:18:07

Could it be clubs and suits? Is that the name of...?

0:18:140:18:18

10 seconds.

0:18:210:18:22

The words? Brain...

0:18:220:18:25

Three seconds.

0:18:270:18:29

BELL

0:18:290:18:30

-Family.

-I'm afraid not. Possible bonus, Listeners.

0:18:300:18:35

-Time.

-Time, eh? I'm surprised you haven't got this one.

0:18:350:18:37

I think even I would have got this one.

0:18:370:18:40

These are things sought by the characters in that the Wizard of Oz

0:18:400:18:43

in the order they come up in at the story.

0:18:430:18:46

Dorothy simply wants to go home, the Scarecrow wants a brain,

0:18:460:18:48

the Tin Man wants a heart,

0:18:480:18:51

the next one along, the Cowardly Lion wants courage.

0:18:510:18:54

So no points there. Looking at the scores then.

0:18:540:18:57

At the end of round two, the Rowers have improved to four points,

0:18:570:19:01

the Listeners are ahead with six.

0:19:010:19:03

Round three is the connecting wall and this wall will be going

0:19:050:19:08

live on the internet if you fancy playing at the same time.

0:19:080:19:11

Rowers, your turn to go first. Please choose lion or water.

0:19:110:19:15

Water, please.

0:19:150:19:17

OK, 16 clues.

0:19:170:19:18

Two and a half minutes to sort them out.

0:19:180:19:20

Starting... now.

0:19:200:19:22

Crikey, so...

0:19:240:19:26

You poach eggs.

0:19:300:19:32

Boot Camp. Nudist camp. Fat camp. Summer camp.

0:19:320:19:36

OK, so you coddle eggs. Poached eggs. Devil's eggs.

0:19:400:19:44

And do you blanch them?

0:19:440:19:46

OK, knee kicker... is that when you're laying...

0:19:480:19:52

laying carpet?

0:19:520:19:54

OK, so pontil.

0:19:540:19:56

Sous-vide...

0:19:560:19:58

-Is that carpeting...?

-No.

0:19:580:20:01

Sous-vide is unseen, isn't it?

0:20:010:20:05

OK, so these are terms in flooring, I suppose.

0:20:050:20:08

I've got to know idea what Fenwich-Symes is.

0:20:110:20:14

-So, I think that's camp. You've got prison camp...

-Boot camp.

0:20:150:20:19

You've used a minute.

0:20:210:20:24

Boot... no.

0:20:240:20:26

There we go.

0:20:290:20:31

So, there's eggs then. Poach, coddle...

0:20:310:20:34

I think Devil has got to be one.

0:20:340:20:37

Devil and then what's pontil?

0:20:370:20:39

No idea.

0:20:410:20:43

Fenwick-Symes, that's going to be a hero, isn't it?

0:20:440:20:47

Boot...

0:20:470:20:49

-A hawk could be a tool.

-Hawk is a tool...

0:20:490:20:53

You've got a minute left.

0:20:530:20:55

No, OK.

0:20:560:20:58

So poach eggs, coddle.

0:20:580:21:00

These are definitely in flooring.

0:21:060:21:08

-That's a cobble's last.

-Cobbler's last...

-Last and...

0:21:110:21:14

A boot is cobbling...

0:21:140:21:17

Boot and then...

0:21:200:21:22

You've got 30 seconds.

0:21:240:21:25

We're struggling here.

0:21:290:21:31

We are indeed an we're also running out of time.

0:21:310:21:33

There's another one here. Eggs still.

0:21:330:21:36

-We've tried Blanche.

-You've 10 seconds now.

0:21:360:21:39

Oh, dear.

0:21:390:21:41

Hey! Very good, very good.

0:21:440:21:46

No, that's it. You're out of time. The wall's frozen.

0:21:520:21:56

OK, well, you got two groups. That's two points.

0:21:560:21:59

Let's see if you can get the connections.

0:21:590:22:01

Prison, summer, fat, nudist.

0:22:010:22:03

-Camps.

-They're simply camps.

0:22:030:22:06

That's right.

0:22:060:22:07

Devil, sous-vide, poach, coddle.

0:22:070:22:09

Ways of cooking eggs.

0:22:090:22:11

I'm going to give it to you.

0:22:120:22:14

Sous-vide would be a nasty way of cooking eggs.

0:22:140:22:16

They're just methods of cookery.

0:22:160:22:19

You get the point.

0:22:190:22:20

You can also get points for the connections you didn't find.

0:22:200:22:23

Let's resolve the wall.

0:22:230:22:25

OK, what about this group?

0:22:250:22:27

Fenwick-Symes, Last, Boot, Blanche.

0:22:270:22:29

-Shoes?

-The last one...

0:22:290:22:32

I've got to tell you.

0:22:320:22:34

You're miles away.

0:22:340:22:36

They're characters in the novels of Evelyn Waugh.

0:22:360:22:38

Fenwick-Symes in Vile Bodies, Tony and Brenda Last

0:22:380:22:42

in A Handful Of Dust, William Boot in Scoop

0:22:420:22:44

and old Anthony Blanche in Brideshead Revisited.

0:22:440:22:48

The last one, Pontil, Hawk, Knee kicker, Jointer.

0:22:480:22:51

We think they're carpet laying.

0:22:510:22:53

-Don't know.

-Is it carpet laying?

0:22:530:22:55

Or tools in carpet laying, flooring and so on?

0:22:550:22:58

I'm just not going to be able

0:22:580:22:59

to accept that.

0:22:590:23:01

I was lenient with the eggs

0:23:010:23:02

but they just aren't all used by a carpet fitter.

0:23:020:23:05

A knee kicker is used when laying carpets

0:23:050:23:08

but they're just generally professional tools.

0:23:080:23:10

The pontil is used by a glass maker, hawk used by a plasterer

0:23:100:23:13

and a jointer used by a stonemason.

0:23:130:23:15

You did get two points for the groups you found

0:23:150:23:18

plus two more connection points. That's four.

0:23:180:23:21

It's time we brought back the Listeners to see what they can do

0:23:210:23:24

with the connecting wall.

0:23:240:23:25

Another difficult quarter-final wall. 16 new clues.

0:23:250:23:28

But of course you want to solve it in the same way you did in your heat.

0:23:280:23:31

Right, you're going to get the Lion wall.

0:23:310:23:34

You've got two-and-a-half minutes starting... now.

0:23:340:23:38

Shanghai Express was a Madonna film.

0:23:410:23:43

Cemeteries...

0:23:430:23:45

Cemeteries, Highgate, Bunhill Fields, Pere Lachaise...

0:23:450:23:49

Arlington.

0:23:490:23:51

No.

0:23:510:23:53

Bunhill Fields, La Recoleta.

0:23:550:23:57

Leave that one.

0:23:590:24:01

Perhaps Highgate is...

0:24:010:24:03

Single name..

0:24:050:24:07

Highgate.

0:24:070:24:09

..Tube stations, yes.

0:24:090:24:11

French Connection is a perfume, Desire is a perfume...

0:24:110:24:14

Kismet...

0:24:140:24:16

Monsoon is a clothes label. Clothes labels.

0:24:160:24:20

Jigsaw, Monsoon, French Connection...

0:24:200:24:23

Oasis is a clothes label.

0:24:230:24:26

Cemeteries. Let's think about this.

0:24:300:24:33

It's to be those four.

0:24:330:24:34

Pere Lachaise.

0:24:340:24:36

Kismet, Morocco, Shanghai Express...

0:24:400:24:42

That's a Madonna film.

0:24:450:24:47

Kismet is a musical set in...

0:24:490:24:52

It's obviously those three.

0:24:580:25:00

Shall we try those four and see what we get?

0:25:050:25:08

You've solved the wall.

0:25:110:25:13

Try those four, see what you get, you get a solved wall.

0:25:130:25:16

That's four points immediately. Let's look for connections.

0:25:160:25:18

Oval, Bank, Highgate, Angel.

0:25:180:25:20

Single name Tube stations.

0:25:200:25:22

Do you want to be any more specific?

0:25:220:25:25

-On the Northern Line.

-They are.

0:25:250:25:26

I'd have taken Tube stations but they're all on the Northern Line.

0:25:260:25:30

Oasis, French Connection, Jigsaw, Monsoon.

0:25:300:25:34

Clothing labels or shops.

0:25:340:25:35

I'll take it.

0:25:350:25:36

They're not so much labels, they're not designer labels,

0:25:360:25:39

they're high-street clothing chains. I'll take that.

0:25:390:25:42

Desire, Kismet, Morocco, Shanghai Express.

0:25:420:25:44

Are they films that have won Razzies?

0:25:460:25:49

I can't give you any more time.

0:25:490:25:51

Films that have won Razzies.

0:25:510:25:53

No, they're films starring Marlene Dietrich.

0:25:530:25:56

Of course, yes.

0:25:560:25:58

-Bunhill Fields, La Recoleta, Pere Lachaise, Arlington.

-Cemeteries.

0:25:580:26:02

They are famous cemeteries.

0:26:020:26:04

Pere Lachaise in Paris, La Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Bunhill Fields

0:26:040:26:08

in Islington, Arlington military cemetery in Washington.

0:26:080:26:12

So you've got four points for finding those groups

0:26:120:26:15

and three more points for the connections.

0:26:150:26:17

That's a total of seven.

0:26:170:26:19

Let's see what that does to the scores going into round four.

0:26:190:26:22

The Rowers have got eight points. But the Listeners are ahead with 13.

0:26:220:26:26

So, time for the missing vowels round.

0:26:280:26:31

Fingers on buzzers.

0:26:310:26:32

I'm going to want to know what the disguised names,

0:26:320:26:35

phrases or sayings are.

0:26:350:26:37

The first group are all... geological processes.

0:26:370:26:41

Listeners.

0:26:430:26:45

-Erosion.

-Correct.

0:26:450:26:47

-Rowers.

-Continental drift.

-Correct.

0:26:500:26:52

Too long here. Diagenesis. Next clue.

0:26:570:27:00

-Listeners.

-Lithification.

-Yes, it is.

0:27:040:27:07

Next category, they married royalty.

0:27:070:27:10

-Rowers.

-Marie Antoinette.

-Correct.

0:27:120:27:14

-Listeners.

-Nefertiti.

-Yes, it is.

0:27:180:27:20

A more obscure one, Lisa Halaby who became Queen Noor of Jordan.

0:27:250:27:29

Next clue. Rowers.

0:27:290:27:31

-Wallis Simpson.

-Yeah, she did.

0:27:310:27:34

Next category, the song title isn't in its lyrics.

0:27:340:27:37

-Listeners.

-The Ballad of John and Yoko.

-Yes.

0:27:400:27:43

-Rowers.

-Viva La Vida.

-Yes. By Coldplay.

0:27:460:27:49

-Listeners.

-Fluorescent...

-I'm afraid you lose a point.

0:27:540:27:56

-Possible bonus, Rowers.

-Fluorescent adolescent.

-Yes, by Arctic Monkeys.

0:27:560:28:02

Next clue.

0:28:020:28:03

No time for Smells Like Teen Spirit

0:28:080:28:11

because it smells like the end of the quiz.

0:28:110:28:13

Looking at the final scores,

0:28:130:28:15

the Rowers have improved to a very impressive 13 points

0:28:150:28:19

but it's not enough because the winners with 16 points

0:28:190:28:22

are the Listeners.

0:28:220:28:23

Well done, Listeners. You are through to the semi-finals.

0:28:230:28:26

Rowers, I'm afraid it's goodbye to you.

0:28:260:28:29

Thank you very much for playing.

0:28:290:28:30

Join me next time when I'll be armed with more connections,

0:28:300:28:34

more questions, more clues

0:28:340:28:36

and of course the attache case full of high-performance weaponry

0:28:360:28:39

that I keep under my desk.

0:28:390:28:41

But you don't need to know about that,

0:28:410:28:43

it's between me and my conscience. Goodbye.

A team of rowers encounter three fans of the Listener crossword in the second of the quarter-finals. They compete to draw together the connections between things which, at first glance, seem utterly random, from Steiff to Veuve Clicquot to Deutsche Grammophon to Boddingtons.
