CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:180:00:20

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:220:00:23

Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong. Welcome to Pointless,

0:00:230:00:25

the game where we aim for the obscure and ignore the obvious.

0:00:250:00:28

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:30

APPLAUSE

0:00:300:00:33

Couple number one.

0:00:340:00:35

Hi, I'm Ranvir, this is my mum, Jaspal, and we're from Bradford.

0:00:350:00:39

-Couple number two.

-My name is Paddy, this is my oldest friend, Sean,

0:00:390:00:42

and we're from Liverpool.

0:00:420:00:43

Couple number three.

0:00:430:00:45

Hi, we're Bill and Jill, a married couple from Hunstanton in Norfolk.

0:00:450:00:48

And, finally, couple number four.

0:00:480:00:50

Hi, I'm Paul and this is my mum, Mary, and we're from Newcastle.

0:00:500:00:53

These are today's contestants.

0:00:530:00:56

APPLAUSE

0:00:560:00:58

Thank you very much, all of you. A warm welcome to the show.

0:00:580:01:00

We'll find out more about you through the show as it goes along.

0:01:000:01:03

That just leaves one more person for me to introduce.

0:01:030:01:06

Happier to see us than a tenner in an old pair of jeans,

0:01:060:01:09

it's my Pointless friend Richard.

0:01:090:01:10

Hiya. Hey, everybody.

0:01:100:01:13

-APPLAUSE

-Welcome along.

0:01:130:01:16

I once saw a tenner in an old pair of jeans.

0:01:160:01:18

I thought, "You can't dress like that at the Albert Hall,

0:01:180:01:21

-"Pavarotti, you can't do it."

-LAUGHTER

0:01:210:01:24

Er, you know what? I know. I'm so sorry.

0:01:240:01:27

I'm very much looking forward to today.

0:01:270:01:29

We've got two returning pairs.

0:01:290:01:31

Ranvir and Jaspal got through to the head-to-head last time,

0:01:310:01:33

so tough to beat. We saw less of Paul and Mary on podium four.

0:01:330:01:36

They got knocked out in that amazing Round One

0:01:360:01:38

where all the answers were fantastic,

0:01:380:01:40

so really unlucky to get knocked out.

0:01:400:01:42

So, hopefully, we'll see more of you.

0:01:420:01:44

Jill and Bill, a rhyming couple.

0:01:440:01:46

Who doesn't love a rhyming couple on the show? It happens so rarely.

0:01:460:01:49

And something tells me Sean and Paddy are going to be fun, as well.

0:01:490:01:53

I don't know what it is. Something tells me

0:01:530:01:55

they're going to be a lot of fun or a lot of trouble, one or the other.

0:01:550:01:58

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:01:580:02:00

Steve and David won the jackpot last time,

0:02:000:02:02

so today's jackpot starts off back at £1,000. There it is.

0:02:020:02:06

If everyone's ready, let's play Pointless.

0:02:060:02:08

APPLAUSE

0:02:080:02:10

All you have to remember is this - the pair with the highest score

0:02:140:02:17

at the end of each round will be eliminated. That's the only rule.

0:02:170:02:21

Best of luck to all four pairs. Our first category this afternoon is...

0:02:210:02:26

It's Football. Can you all decide in your pairs

0:02:270:02:30

who's going first, who's going second?

0:02:300:02:32

and whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.

0:02:320:02:35

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:380:02:41

Football managers and their clubs, Richard.

0:02:440:02:46

Xander's going to show you the names of six football managers.

0:02:460:02:49

We're looking for any senior professional or national team

0:02:490:02:52

that any of these men have been a manager of or head coach.

0:02:520:02:56

So, any senior professional or national club

0:02:560:02:58

that any of these six people have been manager of,

0:02:580:03:00

prior to May, 2015, please.

0:03:000:03:03

Thanks, Rich. We're going to put six names on the board.

0:03:030:03:06

They will stay on the board for the whole round.

0:03:060:03:08

We won't be changing them halfway through.

0:03:080:03:10

We just need to know the name of any professional club they have managed.

0:03:100:03:14

Here are those six names.

0:03:140:03:16

I'll read those one last time.

0:03:240:03:27

-There we are. Jaspal, welcome back.

-Thank you.

0:03:320:03:36

Remind us what you like doing, Jaspal.

0:03:360:03:39

Cooking and reading and I watch a lot of TV quizzes.

0:03:390:03:43

Is there one thing you cook particularly well?

0:03:430:03:46

Is there Jaspal's dish?

0:03:460:03:48

Yes, I'm good at making onion bhajis

0:03:480:03:51

because Ranvir's friends at university were always saying,

0:03:510:03:54

"if your mum's coming with you, will you ask her to bring some with her?"

0:03:540:03:58

-Bring some more?

-Yeah.

-Have you brought any? Have you had any?

0:03:580:04:01

I'm sure she has! She wouldn't come on the show and not brought some.

0:04:010:04:04

-You've brought some onion bhajis today, haven't you?

-Er, no.

-No!

0:04:040:04:08

-It's too hot to cook them.

-It is too hot to cook them. It's too hot.

0:04:080:04:11

-You can't cook in this weather.

-You're absolutely right, yes.

0:04:110:04:14

Perhaps you can just send some down, that will be fine.

0:04:140:04:17

-I will, I'll send some.

-Jaspal, what would you like to go for?

0:04:170:04:20

I'll go for Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool.

0:04:220:04:25

Liverpool, says Jaspal. Liverpool. Let's see if that's right

0:04:250:04:29

and how many of our 100 people said Liverpool.

0:04:290:04:31

It's right.

0:04:330:04:34

46. Not bad at all.

0:04:370:04:40

46 for Liverpool. APPLAUSE

0:04:400:04:42

Narrowly lost out on the title in 2014, Liverpool,

0:04:420:04:45

under Brendan Rodgers.

0:04:450:04:47

Became the first team in about 50 years to score 100 goals

0:04:470:04:49

-and concede 50 in the same season.

-Thank you very much, Richard.

0:04:490:04:52

Now, Sean, warm welcome to Pointless. Good to have you here.

0:04:520:04:56

-What do you do, Sean?

-I work in a restaurant, like, a waiter.

0:04:560:05:00

-What kind of restaurant is it?

-It's Indian street food.

0:05:000:05:03

When it gets hot in your restaurant, do they give up making onion bhajis?

0:05:030:05:06

LAUGHTER

0:05:060:05:07

It's not as busy when it's really hot,

0:05:070:05:10

-so I have to just sit and stare outside the window.

-That's right.

0:05:100:05:13

And what are your interests, aside from when you're waiting?

0:05:130:05:16

I play in a band with Paddy, so I'd quite like to do that all the time.

0:05:160:05:20

-What do you play?

-Sing and play the keyboards.

-Very good.

0:05:200:05:24

Now, Sean, how good is your football knowledge?

0:05:240:05:27

Ooh, well, I don't really know anything about football at all,

0:05:270:05:32

to be honest. So, anything I say will just be a complete guess.

0:05:320:05:35

-So, I'm going to say Manchester City.

-Manchester City, says Sean.

0:05:350:05:40

Let's see if that's right

0:05:400:05:42

and how many of our 100 people said it if it is.

0:05:420:05:45

Ooh, Manchester City, Sean, look at that!

0:05:460:05:49

APPLAUSE

0:05:510:05:53

Not a bad answer by any means, for a guess.

0:05:530:05:56

Yeah, two of them managed Man City - Manuel Pellegrini and Mark Hughes.

0:05:560:06:00

Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Jill, welcome.

0:06:000:06:03

Lovely to have you here from Hunstanton. What do you do, Jill?

0:06:030:06:07

-Nothing. I'm retired.

-Ah, how nice!

0:06:070:06:10

What sort of nothing do you like to do?

0:06:100:06:13

I do Scottish country dancing, I play bowls in a league very badly.

0:06:130:06:16

Do you play short mat or crown green?

0:06:160:06:19

-It's not short mat.

-I was asking.

-It's inside.

0:06:190:06:23

-Is that not the right thing to ask?

-Um...

0:06:230:06:25

-Have I committed some terrible faux pas?

-There's lawn bowls as well.

0:06:250:06:29

-There's lawn bowls.

-It's lawn bowls inside.

-Yeah, indoor bowls.

-Yes.

0:06:290:06:33

-Indoor bowls.

-But not tenpin bowling.

0:06:330:06:35

Do you know, I've got so much to learn about bowls, Jill.

0:06:350:06:38

Yes, so have I!

0:06:380:06:40

Now, Jill, what would you like to go for from our board of managers?

0:06:400:06:44

This is my absolute worst nightmare.

0:06:440:06:47

Well, it sounds like you're in very good company,

0:06:470:06:49

-from what everyone's said so far.

-Yes.

0:06:490:06:52

I've never heard of any of those gentlemen,

0:06:520:06:54

so I'm just going to pick a football team and I'm going to say Arsenal.

0:06:540:06:58

Arsenal, says Jill. Arsenal.

0:06:580:07:00

Let's see if that's right and how many people said Arsenal.

0:07:000:07:03

No, Jill. I'm sorry. Arsenal an incorrect answer.

0:07:050:07:09

Scores you 100 points.

0:07:090:07:11

Yeah, sorry, of all the ones you could have chosen,

0:07:110:07:14

they've famously had the same manager for a very long time.

0:07:140:07:17

-Certainly up to May, 2015, they have.

-Thank you very much, Richard.

0:07:170:07:20

-Now, Paul.

-Hi.

-Welcome back. Remind us what you do, Paul.

0:07:200:07:25

I'm a film student in London.

0:07:250:07:27

When you're not doing your film, what do you like getting up to?

0:07:270:07:30

Um, I play tennis.

0:07:300:07:33

I try to play more in London, since there's so many courts around.

0:07:330:07:36

And I always say that I'm a singer but I haven't sung for a long time,

0:07:360:07:41

but I'm still going to say I'm a singer.

0:07:410:07:43

What kind of singing? With a band?

0:07:430:07:45

It's with my brother, so it's just acoustic kind of music

0:07:450:07:48

and we do gigs around Newcastle and things. Or we did.

0:07:480:07:51

Now, Paul, what would you like to go for?

0:07:510:07:54

Again, absolutely terrible subject for me.

0:07:540:07:58

But being from Newcastle, I'm sure somewhere

0:07:580:08:02

I've heard everybody whingeing about Alan Pardew.

0:08:020:08:05

-So, I'm going to say Newcastle.

-Newcastle.

0:08:050:08:07

OK, let's see if that's right

0:08:070:08:09

and how many of our 100 people said Newcastle.

0:08:090:08:11

It's right. Well, 100 was our high score. You passed that immediately.

0:08:140:08:17

39! You are our low-scorer, Paul. Look at that.

0:08:170:08:21

APPLAUSE

0:08:210:08:23

Very well done.

0:08:230:08:24

Yeah, he famously had a very strange time at Newcastle.

0:08:240:08:27

It was unbelievable, had a bad half a season,

0:08:270:08:29

all the fans wanted him out. He did leave eventually.

0:08:290:08:32

Newcastle then almost got relegated.

0:08:320:08:34

They had a terrible rest of the season and he transformed

0:08:340:08:36

the fortunes of another club straight afterwards,

0:08:360:08:40

so I think they slightly regretted handing him out.

0:08:400:08:43

Or I could be wrong.

0:08:430:08:44

I'm sure Newcastle fans will tweet me in their numbers

0:08:440:08:46

to tell me that I am wrong. That's how it looked from the outside.

0:08:460:08:49

Thanks, Richard. We're halfway through the round.

0:08:490:08:52

Let's look at those scores.

0:08:520:08:54

39, the best score of that pass, Paul. Well done, Paul and Mary,

0:08:540:08:57

lauding it over the rest of you.

0:08:570:08:58

Up to 42, not far ahead, Sean and Paddy.

0:08:580:09:02

Up to 46, Ranvir and Jaspal.

0:09:020:09:05

Then up to 100, Jill and Bill, I'm sorry.

0:09:050:09:07

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:09:070:09:10

-Now then, Mary.

-Oh.

-Mary, welcome back to Pointless.

0:09:130:09:18

Last time, you were telling us about Georgian theatre...

0:09:180:09:21

-Yes.

-..and Georgian theatre performance.

0:09:210:09:23

I was hearing that, apparently, you've done a bit of stand-up. Mary.

0:09:230:09:27

-Yes, I did.

-How did that go?

-It went. Um...

0:09:270:09:31

It went quite well, actually.

0:09:310:09:33

I stood up in front of an audience,

0:09:330:09:36

-I told some jokes and they laughed.

-Well, that's perfect.

0:09:360:09:39

-Are you doing any more?

-No.

0:09:390:09:41

-OK.

-But it was nice to have done it.

0:09:410:09:43

I wanted to do it at 60, as a sort of bucket list thing.

0:09:430:09:47

I have to say, hats off to you. And it was in a comedy club?

0:09:470:09:50

Yes, I started off doing a comedy course at the live theatre

0:09:500:09:54

in Newcastle and then I put my name forward

0:09:540:09:57

for this comedy club

0:09:570:09:58

and you had to do it twice, so I had to write two bits.

0:09:580:10:02

That takes a lot of guts. Now, Mary, you're on 39.

0:10:020:10:06

If you can score 60 or less, you're into the next round.

0:10:060:10:10

No idea, I'm afraid. I did know Alan Pardew.

0:10:100:10:14

Um... So, I'm going to...

0:10:140:10:18

-..go for Manchester United.

-Manchester United, says Mary.

0:10:200:10:25

Here comes your red line.

0:10:250:10:27

If you get below that, you're through to the next round.

0:10:270:10:30

Let's see how many people said Manchester United.

0:10:300:10:32

-It's right.

-No!

-And you're through. Very well done.

0:10:340:10:38

APPLAUSE

0:10:380:10:40

-82 is your total, Mary.

-Yeah, Louis van Gaal

0:10:430:10:46

managed Manchester United. That's my mum's answer gone as well.

0:10:460:10:50

She'd have gone "Man United. I'll put the kettle on till Round Two."

0:10:500:10:53

-But, yeah, Manchester United.

-Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:10:530:10:56

Now, Bill. Bill, hello

0:10:560:10:59

and a warm welcome to you, here from Hunstanton. What do you do, Bill?

0:10:590:11:02

-I'm a writer.

-A writer.

0:11:020:11:04

I write novels and short stories and poetry,

0:11:040:11:07

-not yet published but waiting to be discovered.

-Very good.

0:11:070:11:11

Are you very disciplined at making yourself sit down and write?

0:11:110:11:14

Try to, when she lets me.

0:11:140:11:16

Yeah! But do you maybe sort of do

0:11:160:11:19

500 words a day, something like that?

0:11:190:11:21

Try to, yeah, very much try to.

0:11:210:11:23

Hats off to you. It's no mean feat, that.

0:11:230:11:25

Now, Bill, there you are on 100.

0:11:250:11:27

We need a low score from you. Do you follow football at all?

0:11:270:11:30

Er, yes. I have the advantage over Jill,

0:11:300:11:34

in that I actually recognise some of the names.

0:11:340:11:36

That doesn't help very much, though, cos I don't know where they managed.

0:11:360:11:40

-So I'll go Southampton.

-Southampton, says Bill.

0:11:400:11:43

No red line for you,

0:11:430:11:45

but let's see how many of our 100 people said Southampton.

0:11:450:11:48

Let's see if it's right.

0:11:480:11:49

It is right. It is right.

0:11:510:11:54

39's our lowest score so far and you pass that very comfortably indeed.

0:11:540:11:59

APPLAUSE 26 takes your total up to 126.

0:11:590:12:02

You might well have kept yourself in the game there.

0:12:020:12:05

Well played. Again, two of the names on that list managed Southampton -

0:12:050:12:08

-Alan Pardew and Mauricio Pochettino.

-Thanks very much, Richard.

0:12:080:12:11

-Now, Paddy, welcome.

-Hello.

0:12:110:12:13

-How long have you known each other?

-22, 23 years.

-Yeah.

-Wow.

0:12:130:12:17

-So how old were you when you met?

-Three.

-About three.

0:12:170:12:20

Ah, that's really nice then.

0:12:200:12:22

-And you think Pointless will...

-End the friendship.

0:12:220:12:26

Yeah, well, we'll see. What do you do, Paddy?

0:12:260:12:28

I write for theatre on a freelance level

0:12:280:12:31

and I'm soon to be a student again, which is exciting.

0:12:310:12:34

That's fun. And where are you going to be doing that?

0:12:340:12:37

Doing script-writing, a creative writing masters at East Anglia.

0:12:370:12:40

Fantastic. Now, how is your football knowledge?

0:12:400:12:42

-You know what? It's pretty good.

-Good.

0:12:420:12:45

But that could be famous last words,

0:12:450:12:47

but I think that I've got an answer.

0:12:470:12:50

-Um, Swansea City.

-Swansea City, says Paddy.

0:12:500:12:54

83 is your target. There's your red line.

0:12:540:12:57

Get below that with Swansea City, Round Two beckons.

0:12:570:12:59

OK, how many people said Swansea City?

0:12:590:13:02

It's right. Very well done. You're through.

0:13:050:13:08

APPLAUSE

0:13:110:13:13

Very good. 63 your total.

0:13:140:13:16

Well done, Paddy. As you well know,

0:13:160:13:19

that's where Brendan Rodgers joined Liverpool from.

0:13:190:13:21

Thanks very much, Richard. Now then, Ranvir, welcome back.

0:13:210:13:25

Remind us what you do, Ranvir.

0:13:250:13:27

I am waiting to hear back if I've passed my PhD or not.

0:13:270:13:31

-And Ranvir, you're interests are?

-Jujitsu is the main one.

0:13:310:13:34

Jujitsu, that's right.

0:13:340:13:36

Tell me what the basic elements of jujitsu are.

0:13:360:13:38

I don't know why I'm doing this. Getting all active.

0:13:380:13:41

What is jujitsu, as opposed to, I don't know, karate?

0:13:410:13:44

The basic principle is it's using an aggressor's momentum against him,

0:13:440:13:48

so it covers a wide spectrum of defences

0:13:480:13:50

against weapons and unarmed,

0:13:500:13:52

but the idea is you don't need to be big,

0:13:520:13:55

you just use their energy against them.

0:13:550:13:57

-That's good. That's all the more satisfying, isn't it?

-It is.

0:13:570:14:00

You could almost be writing your PhD while you did it.

0:14:000:14:03

-Yeah, a quick little flick and they're off into... Yeah.

-Very good.

0:14:030:14:07

Now, Ranvir, there you are on 46.

0:14:070:14:08

If you can score 79 or less, you're into the next round.

0:14:080:14:11

Well, I'm going to give an answer, cos I can see Richard twitching,

0:14:110:14:14

waiting for someone to say it,

0:14:140:14:16

so I believe Mark Hughes once managed Fulham.

0:14:160:14:19

There we are. Fulham.

0:14:190:14:21

There was meant to be a glitter drop then

0:14:210:14:24

but I'm not quite sure what happened. OK, Fulham. Let's see.

0:14:240:14:27

Here is your red line.

0:14:270:14:28

If you get below that, you are through to the next round. Fulham.

0:14:280:14:31

Very well done and very well done.

0:14:330:14:36

That's a great answer! 6.

0:14:400:14:42

And satisfyingly enough, Ranvir, the lowest score of the round

0:14:420:14:45

by a margin. 52 is your total.

0:14:450:14:47

-Very well done.

-Thank you, Ranvir. Very well played.

0:14:470:14:50

He managed just for a season after Roy Hodgson, then he left.

0:14:500:14:53

He left us for better things. Then they disappeared.

0:14:530:14:56

Anyway, you don't need to know my problems.

0:14:560:14:58

But it's a very good answer and he is now doing better

0:14:580:15:01

than Fulham are, so someone's had the last laugh and it is not ME!

0:15:010:15:06

Let's take a look at the low-scoring answers for the different managers.

0:15:060:15:10

Alan Pardew. Charlton Athletic would have scored you 5 points.

0:15:100:15:13

Would have been a terrific answer.

0:15:130:15:15

18 points for West Ham and 24 for Crystal Palace.

0:15:150:15:19

Another good answer would have been Reading, which is Alan Pardew

0:15:190:15:22

and Brendan Rodgers. Both managed Reading.

0:15:220:15:24

The only other Brendan Rodgers answer is Watford - 3 points.

0:15:240:15:27

Well done if you said that.

0:15:270:15:29

Louis van Gaal has managed some incredible teams.

0:15:290:15:31

AZ Alkmaar for 1, Bayern Munich - 4, Ajax - 9, Barcelona - 9,

0:15:310:15:35

and the Netherlands for 13.

0:15:350:15:37

The place where you find all your pointless answers

0:15:370:15:40

is our friend Manuel Pellegrini cos he is Chilean,

0:15:400:15:42

so there's lots of obscure South American teams.

0:15:420:15:45

If you really know your football,

0:15:450:15:46

well done if you got the Argentinian team San Lorenzo,

0:15:460:15:49

the Ecuadorian team LDU Quito,

0:15:490:15:51

or the Chilean teams, Universidad de Chile, Palestino,

0:15:510:15:54

Universidad Catolica or even better than that, O'Higgins,

0:15:540:15:57

the Chilean side he was manager of.

0:15:570:15:59

1 point for River Plate, 3 for Villarreal,

0:15:590:16:02

4 for Malaga and 6 for Real Madrid.

0:16:020:16:05

And Pochettino.

0:16:050:16:06

You'd have got 2 points for Espanyol and 25 for Tottenham Hotspur.

0:16:060:16:10

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:16:100:16:12

So, at the end of our first round, the pair heading home

0:16:120:16:14

with their high score of 126, I'm afraid it's Bill and Jill.

0:16:140:16:18

Bill and Jill, our rhyming couple.

0:16:180:16:21

It's far too soon to be sending you home,

0:16:210:16:23

but we'll see you again next time. We'll look forward to that.

0:16:230:16:25

Thanks very much. Bill and Jill, everyone.

0:16:250:16:27

-Thanks very much.

-APPLAUSE

0:16:270:16:30

For the remaining three pairs, it's time for Round Two.

0:16:300:16:33

APPLAUSE

0:16:330:16:35

Now we're down to three pairs.

0:16:380:16:40

At the end of this round, we'll have to say goodbye to another pair.

0:16:400:16:43

Ranvir, hats off to you. Lowest individual score of that round.

0:16:430:16:46

Well done for saying Fulham as well.

0:16:460:16:48

And also, Ranvir and Jaspal, lowest combined score.

0:16:480:16:51

Fantastic performance there. Paul and Mary, welcome to Round Two.

0:16:510:16:54

This is what it looks like. I hope you like it.

0:16:540:16:56

Make yourselves at home. And Sean and Paddy, just great. Good shirts.

0:16:560:17:01

-BOTH:

-Thanks.

-LAUGHTER

0:17:010:17:02

Best of luck to all three pairs.

0:17:020:17:04

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:17:040:17:07

Classical Music.

0:17:090:17:10

Can you decide in your pairs who's going first, who's going second?

0:17:100:17:13

And whoever's going first, please step up to the podium.

0:17:130:17:16

OK, and the question concerns...

0:17:200:17:23

Classic Brit Award winners.

0:17:260:17:29

We're going to give you six clues on each pass

0:17:290:17:31

to Classic Brit Award winners

0:17:310:17:33

or Classical Brit Award winners, as they used to be called.

0:17:330:17:35

Six on each pass, 12 in all to have a go at home. Best of luck.

0:17:350:17:38

Thanks, Richard. We're looking for

0:17:380:17:40

the Classic or Classical Brit Award winners described by these clues.

0:17:400:17:43

Here's our first board of six.

0:17:430:17:46

I'll read those all one last time.

0:18:100:18:12

Now, Jaspal, how do you find our board of Classic Brit Award winners?

0:18:320:18:39

Very difficult cos I don't know much about opera or classical music.

0:18:390:18:44

I'll have to just take a punt at the Beatle

0:18:450:18:47

who won a Classic Brit Award for his album as Paul McCartney.

0:18:470:18:52

Paul McCartney. Stands to reason, surely? Let's see if it's right.

0:18:520:18:56

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Paul McCartney.

0:18:560:18:59

Yes, it's Paul McCartney.

0:19:020:19:04

Ecce Cor Meum.

0:19:050:19:07

That's a great answer! Very well done indeed, Jaspal. Very good.

0:19:080:19:12

15 for Paul McCartney. APPLAUSE

0:19:120:19:15

That is very smart playing, Jaspal.

0:19:150:19:17

Some people, if they see a board like that, they panic,

0:19:170:19:20

and you picked the one thing you knew was a one in four chance

0:19:200:19:22

and given Ringo Starr,

0:19:220:19:23

-it's a one in three chance, really.

-Yeah.

0:19:230:19:25

It was his fourth classical album, Paul McCartney.

0:19:250:19:28

-That's good play.

-Yeah, very good play. Absolutely exemplary.

0:19:280:19:33

-Now, Paddy.

-Hello.

-Paddy, hello. What are you going to go for here?

0:19:330:19:37

This isn't a strong round of mine,

0:19:370:19:40

but I've got a feeling that Sean's going to be amazing at this one,

0:19:400:19:43

so I'm going to play it safe

0:19:430:19:45

and I'm going to say Andrew Lloyd Webber composed the musicals.

0:19:450:19:50

OK, Andrew Lloyd Webber, says Paddy. Let's see if that's right

0:19:500:19:53

and how many people said Andrew Lloyd Webber.

0:19:530:19:55

It's right.

0:19:570:19:58

-That's all right.

-Not bad. Not bad at all.

0:20:010:20:03

APPLAUSE 50 for Andrew Lloyd Webber.

0:20:030:20:06

Not bad, Paddy, but you're no Jaspal.

0:20:060:20:08

Yeah, he received the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award in 2008.

0:20:080:20:14

Thank you very much indeed, Richard. Now, Paul. This board is all yours.

0:20:140:20:19

Do you fancy talking us all the way through it

0:20:190:20:21

-and filling in all the blanks?

-Oh, definitely, yeah(!)

0:20:210:20:24

No! I know the obvious ones. The Three Tenors - Pavarotti, isn't it?

0:20:240:20:31

The first one I don't know. Never watched Downton Abbey.

0:20:310:20:34

Sweeney Todd I don't know. So, it's going to have to be

0:20:340:20:36

"Released her debut album Voice Of An Angel when she was 12 years old".

0:20:360:20:39

-Charlotte Church.

-Charlotte Church, says Paul.

0:20:390:20:42

Let's see if that's right and how many people said Charlotte Church.

0:20:420:20:45

It's right. 50's our high score.

0:20:470:20:50

You pass it. 42.

0:20:500:20:52

APPLAUSE

0:20:520:20:54

42 for Charlotte Church.

0:20:540:20:57

She was British Artist Of The Year in the very first Classical Brits.

0:20:570:21:01

You'd have done a lot better if you'd said Luciano Pavarotti.

0:21:010:21:04

It would have scored you 11 points.

0:21:040:21:06

It would have been a terrific answer. Surprisingly low score.

0:21:060:21:09

People at home will have had a guess at the New Zealand soprano.

0:21:090:21:11

-Kiri Te Kanawa.

-Kiri Te Kanawa would have scored you 13.

0:21:110:21:15

-Now, I went to see this production.

-Did you?

-It was amazing!

0:21:150:21:18

-He's brilliant.

-It's Emma Thompson and...?

0:21:180:21:20

-Bryn Terfel.

-Bryn Terfel, yeah.

0:21:200:21:22

And it's a pointless answer, so very well done if you said that at home.

0:21:220:21:26

Thank you very much, Richard. We're halfway through the round.

0:21:260:21:29

Let's look at those scores. 15, a fantastic score there.

0:21:290:21:32

Ranvir and Jaspal, once again, all over this round.

0:21:320:21:35

Then up to 42, Paul and Mary. Then up to 50,

0:21:350:21:38

so not much between you, Paddy and Sean and Paul and Mary.

0:21:380:21:41

But Sean, it comes down to you. Paddy had great faith in you.

0:21:410:21:44

-Was that well placed?

-Um...we'll see.

-Fingers crossed.

0:21:440:21:48

We need a low score from you,

0:21:480:21:50

otherwise we'll be saying goodbye at the end of the round.

0:21:500:21:52

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:520:21:54

Let's put six more clues up on the board. Here they are.

0:21:570:22:00

I'll read those all one last time.

0:22:320:22:34

Mary. Remember, we are looking for the winners

0:23:020:23:04

of the Classic Brit Awards described by these clues.

0:23:040:23:08

I can't remember some of them. My mind's gone blank in a panic.

0:23:090:23:14

The only one that I can remember is, I think,

0:23:140:23:17

Lang Lang, the Chinese pianist.

0:23:170:23:20

Lang Lang, says Mary. Lang Lang.

0:23:200:23:22

If you can score 7 or less, you're into the head-to-head.

0:23:220:23:25

Here's your red line. Get below that

0:23:250:23:28

with Lang Lang and you're there.

0:23:280:23:30

It's right.

0:23:310:23:33

It's a good answer, Mary.

0:23:360:23:37

Very well done indeed! That scores you 1...

0:23:370:23:40

APPLAUSE ..taking your total up to 43.

0:23:400:23:43

Very strong indeed.

0:23:430:23:46

Your mind went blank at a perfect time then,

0:23:460:23:48

because that is a terrific answer.

0:23:480:23:51

Very good. Now, Sean.

0:23:510:23:54

-You're the high-scorers at this point.

-Yeah.

0:23:540:23:58

Lang Lang was the one I was going to say.

0:23:580:24:00

It's the only one I know as well.

0:24:000:24:02

I'm just going to have to make something up cos I have no idea,

0:24:020:24:05

and say The Four Opera Singers

0:24:050:24:09

for the operatic group whose members include...

0:24:090:24:13

-I think he's saying The Four Opera Singers.

-Oh, The Four Opera Singers!

0:24:130:24:17

Oh, I see. The Four Opera Singers. There we are.

0:24:170:24:21

OK, let's see if that's right.

0:24:210:24:23

No red line for you. There we are.

0:24:230:24:26

Yeah...

0:24:260:24:28

I'm afraid not The Four Opera Singers.

0:24:280:24:30

That takes your total up to 150, Sean.

0:24:300:24:32

Have you ever thought of working in music marketing? It's a great name.

0:24:320:24:37

-It's not bad.

-Does what it says on the tin.

-Absolutely.

0:24:370:24:40

Now then, Ranvir. Good news - it doesn't matter what you score.

0:24:400:24:43

However, I wouldn't be at all surprised

0:24:430:24:46

if you had some good answers here.

0:24:460:24:48

Do you fancy talking us through that board?

0:24:480:24:50

There's a couple I might know. The Welsh singer who married

0:24:500:24:53

in 2014, I can only think Katherine Jenkins.

0:24:530:24:57

But I'm going to go for the operatic group.

0:24:570:24:59

Something in the back of my head is saying Il Divo.

0:24:590:25:02

-Il Divo.

-That's what I'm going for.

-OK, let's see if Il Divo is right.

0:25:020:25:05

No red line for you. How many people said Il Divo?

0:25:050:25:09

It's absolutely right.

0:25:110:25:13

Look at that. Down it goes.

0:25:170:25:19

APPLAUSE

0:25:190:25:21

Once again, unstoppable on that first podium there.

0:25:210:25:24

-Ranvir and Jaspal, 19 is your total.

-Well played, Ranvir.

0:25:240:25:27

They've had three UK number one albums.

0:25:270:25:30

They were named Artist Of The Decade at the Classic Brits.

0:25:300:25:33

Let's take a look through all of these.

0:25:330:25:35

-I bet you know the top one.

-Howard Goodall.

0:25:350:25:37

Howard Goodall, yeah. 2 points for that.

0:25:370:25:40

-The Belfast-born flautist?

-James Galway.

-James Galway.

0:25:400:25:44

Would have scored you 12.

0:25:440:25:46

You're right, Ranvir, about Katherine Jenkins.

0:25:460:25:49

That would have scored you 20.

0:25:490:25:50

-And the bottom one?

-Nigel Kennedy.

-Nigel Kennedy is the answer.

0:25:500:25:53

And that would have scored you 15.

0:25:530:25:55

So, Lang Lang is the best answer on the board, which is some going.

0:25:550:26:00

-That's some mind blank.

-Isn't it? Isn't it just?

0:26:000:26:02

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:26:020:26:04

At the end of our second round, the pair heading home

0:26:040:26:06

with their high score of 150, I'm afraid it's Sean and Paddy.

0:26:060:26:09

But we'll see you again next time. I'm sure we'll see more of then.

0:26:090:26:13

Thanks very much for playing. Sean and Paddy.

0:26:130:26:15

APPLAUSE

0:26:150:26:18

But for Paul and Mary, Ranvir and Jaspal,

0:26:180:26:21

it's now time for our head-to-head.

0:26:210:26:23

APPLAUSE

0:26:230:26:25

Very well done, Ranvir and Jaspal, Paul and Mary.

0:26:290:26:32

You're now one step closer to the final

0:26:320:26:34

and a chance to play for our jackpot which currently stands at £1,000.

0:26:340:26:38

You know the deal here.

0:26:380:26:40

You're now allowed to start playing as teams,

0:26:400:26:42

you can talk before you give your answers.

0:26:420:26:44

First player to win two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:26:440:26:47

Let's play the head-to-head.

0:26:470:26:48

APPLAUSE

0:26:480:26:50

OK, so, here comes your first question and it concerns...

0:26:530:26:57

-Famous Als, Richard.

-We're going to show you five pictures

0:26:590:27:02

of famous people known by the name Al.

0:27:020:27:04

Can you identify the most obscure?

0:27:040:27:06

OK, let's reveal our five famous Als. Here they are.

0:27:060:27:11

There we go. Five famous Als.

0:27:360:27:41

Ranvir and Jaspal, you've been our low-scorers, so you get to go first.

0:27:410:27:44

INAUDIBLE DISCUSSION

0:27:440:27:48

-Yeah, we'll go for C. Al Murray.

-OK, Al Murray. C, Al Murray.

0:27:550:28:00

Now, Paul and Mary.

0:28:000:28:02

Well, E is Al Pacino.

0:28:020:28:06

-I think B might be Al Green, the singer.

-Shall we go B?

0:28:060:28:10

-We're going to try B, Al Green.

-OK, B, Al Green.

0:28:100:28:14

So, we have Al Murray and we have Al Green.

0:28:140:28:17

Ranvir and Jaspal said Al Murray for C.

0:28:170:28:20

Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:28:200:28:23

It is right, of course.

0:28:250:28:27

64. A high score for Al Murray there.

0:28:270:28:30

APPLAUSE

0:28:300:28:32

Paul and Mary, meanwhile, have gone for Al Green for B.

0:28:320:28:36

Let's see if that's right

0:28:360:28:38

and how many of our 100 people said Al Green.

0:28:380:28:41

It's right.

0:28:440:28:46

And it wins you the point. Well done.

0:28:460:28:48

-17.

-Wow!

-APPLAUSE

0:28:510:28:54

Very well done, Paul and Mary. After one question, you're up 1-0.

0:28:540:28:58

Good work, Paul and Mary. Well played.

0:28:580:29:00

A is the American singer and actor Al Martino.

0:29:000:29:05

He would have scored you 11 points.

0:29:050:29:07

He was Johnny Fontane in The Godfather.

0:29:070:29:09

D. You may recognise him from Cagney And Lacey.

0:29:090:29:13

It's Al Waxman. Very well done if you got the name, though.

0:29:130:29:16

2 points if you did. Terrific answer.

0:29:160:29:18

And E. The shock news is Al Pacino is less famous than Al Murray.

0:29:180:29:22

-Look at that!

-Would have scored you 59 points.

-Superb.

0:29:220:29:26

-Good news for Al Murray.

-Fantastic. There we are. Thank you, Richard.

0:29:260:29:30

Here comes your second question.

0:29:300:29:31

Ranvir and Jaspal, you have to win this one to stay in the game.

0:29:310:29:35

But Paul and Mary get to answer it first. Best of luck.

0:29:350:29:38

It concerns...

0:29:380:29:40

-Richard.

-We're going to give you five clues

0:29:430:29:45

and the answers to each of them are letters of the Greek alphabet.

0:29:450:29:48

Can you answer the most obscure?

0:29:480:29:50

Let's reveal our five clues. Here they come.

0:29:500:29:53

I'll read those one last time.

0:30:150:30:18

Paul and Mary will go first.

0:30:340:30:37

-THEY WHISPER:

-It's beta-testing, isn't?

-What?

-Beta-testing.

0:30:370:30:41

INAUDIBLE DISCUSSION

0:30:410:30:44

Um, OK, I think we'll go for...

0:30:460:30:51

.."The testing of a software product

0:30:520:30:54

"in its final stages of development."

0:30:540:30:57

-I think I've heard beta-testing said before.

-Beta-testing.

-Beta-testing.

0:30:570:31:00

OK, beta-testing, you're going to say.

0:31:000:31:02

-Ranvir and Jaspal, talk us through that board.

-We agree with that.

0:31:020:31:07

From top to bottom, omega, gamma, pi, nu.

0:31:070:31:10

Cos I think it's nu metal and I'm hoping that's also a Greek letter.

0:31:100:31:16

-Nu.

-Nu. OK, nu. So, we have beta and nu. Paul and Mary said beta.

0:31:160:31:21

Let's see if it's right and how many people said it.

0:31:210:31:23

It is right.

0:31:250:31:27

47. APPLAUSE

0:31:290:31:31

47. Now, Ranvir and Jaspal, once again,

0:31:310:31:35

very clever deduction here, if it's right.

0:31:350:31:38

Let's see if nu metal is right and how many people said it.

0:31:380:31:41

It is right.

0:31:450:31:46

And it wins you the point. Very well done.

0:31:480:31:50

Back in the game. After two questions, it's 1-1.

0:31:500:31:54

Well played. Good head-to-head, this.

0:31:570:31:59

Nu is the 13th letter of the Greek alphabet.

0:31:590:32:02

You went through the other ones nicely as well

0:32:020:32:04

and you chose the right one as well. Omega at the top there.

0:32:040:32:07

Thanks very much, Richard. So, here comes the decider.

0:32:180:32:21

This is the third question that will let us know

0:32:210:32:23

who goes through to the final and who we say goodbye to.

0:32:230:32:27

Best of luck to both pairs. Our third question today concerns...

0:32:270:32:30

LAUGHTER

0:32:310:32:33

-Quiz show hosts, Richard.

-Yeah, THAT lot!

-Yeah, oh!

0:32:330:32:36

We're going to show you the names of five inferior quiz show hosts.

0:32:360:32:39

No, we're not! We're going to show you the names

0:32:390:32:41

of five quiz show hosts, but in anagram form.

0:32:410:32:43

Can you unscramble them and give us the most obscure answer, please?

0:32:430:32:47

-Very best of luck.

-OK, let's reveal

0:32:470:32:49

our scrambled quiz show hosts. Here they are.

0:32:490:32:53

I'll read those all one last time.

0:33:080:33:10

There we are. Now then, Ranvir and Jaspal, you will go first this time.

0:33:160:33:22

INAUDIBLE DISCUSSION

0:33:220:33:25

Oh, wait a minute. I've got the last one. Shall we just go for it?

0:33:300:33:34

-The bottom one. Anne Robinson.

-Anne Robinson.

0:33:340:33:37

Anne Robinson, say Ranvir and Jaspal.

0:33:370:33:40

Now, Paul and Mary, do you fancy talking us through the others?

0:33:400:33:44

I think the only one that has stuck out straightaway is the top one,

0:33:440:33:48

Magnus Magnusson, so I think we'll have to go for that.

0:33:480:33:51

OK, you're going to go for Magnus Magnusson.

0:33:510:33:53

We have Anne Robinson and Magnus Magnusson.

0:33:530:33:56

Ranvir and Jaspal said Anne Robinson.

0:33:560:33:59

Let's see if that's right and how many people said it.

0:33:590:34:02

It's right.

0:34:040:34:06

Ooh, that's a good answer, look at that!

0:34:100:34:12

4 for Anne Robinson. Very well done indeed.

0:34:120:34:14

APPLAUSE

0:34:140:34:16

Ranvir and Jaspal, great answer there.

0:34:160:34:19

Now, Paul and Mary have gone for Magnus Magnusson. Gaga Summons Nuns.

0:34:190:34:25

Let's see if that's right and how many people said Magnus Magnusson.

0:34:250:34:28

It's right.

0:34:320:34:33

Oh, it's going to be close.

0:34:370:34:38

Oh, it wins! And it's pointless!

0:34:380:34:41

Very, very well done indeed.

0:34:410:34:43

That's a pointless answer, which adds £250 to today's jackpot.

0:34:430:34:47

Takes the total up to £1,250.

0:34:470:34:50

It scores you nothing, it wins you the point

0:34:500:34:54

and it sees you through to the final, 2-1.

0:34:540:34:57

-Very well done indeed, Paul and Mary.

-Well played.

0:34:570:34:59

As a pair, you have a history now of only knowing one answer

0:34:590:35:02

and it being the best answer on the board!

0:35:020:35:04

I don't know what skill that is you've got but it's quite something.

0:35:040:35:07

Let's fill in the rest. Some hard ones here.

0:35:070:35:09

-Do you know the second one?

-No.

0:35:090:35:11

The 1, is the clue there cos it's got a middle initial.

0:35:110:35:14

-It's William G Stewart.

-Of course it is.

0:35:140:35:16

He originally presented Fifteen To One. The next one?

0:35:160:35:20

-Dale Winton.

-Dale Winton would have scored you 9.

0:35:200:35:23

-And the biggest scorer on the board?

-Ben Shephard.

-Ben Shephard.

0:35:230:35:26

-He would have scored you 16.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:35:260:35:30

So, the pair leaving us at the end of the head-to-head round,

0:35:300:35:32

I'm sorry, Ranvir and Jaspal, you've been through to the head-to-head...

0:35:320:35:36

I mean two absolutely phenomenal shows you've done.

0:35:360:35:39

But I'm afraid you haven't made it through to the final

0:35:390:35:42

and this is where we have to say goodbye, finally.

0:35:420:35:44

But it's been great fun having you on. Thank you so much for playing.

0:35:440:35:47

Ranvir and Jaspal, great contestants.

0:35:470:35:49

APPLAUSE

0:35:490:35:51

But for Paul and Mary, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:530:35:56

APPLAUSE

0:35:560:35:58

Paul and Mary, congratulations. You've seen off all the competition

0:36:000:36:05

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:36:050:36:08

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot

0:36:140:36:16

and at the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £1,250.

0:36:160:36:21

Very best of luck. Let's see what we've got on the board today.

0:36:210:36:25

How many ballet films are there? Billions.

0:36:350:36:38

-There's only one way to find out.

-There's your favourite one.

0:36:380:36:42

-Billy Elliot?

-No, Black Swan.

-Oh, Black Swan - that's good. Shall...?

0:36:420:36:46

-Why...?

-Go for the ballet?

-Shall we just do it? Yeah, why not?

0:36:460:36:50

-Ballet Films.

-Ballet Films it is. Richard.

0:36:500:36:53

We are looking for any actor credited by IMDb for appearing

0:36:540:36:57

in any of the following three films, please.

0:36:570:37:00

So, any actors credited in any of those three films.

0:37:080:37:11

-Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much. That's not so bad, is it?

0:37:110:37:14

You've got up to one minute to come up with three answers.

0:37:140:37:17

All you need to win that jackpot

0:37:170:37:18

is for just one of your answers to be pointless.

0:37:180:37:21

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

-Yeah.

0:37:210:37:23

Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock. Your time starts now.

0:37:230:37:26

OK, so it's going to be Black Swan. I don't know the others. I know...

0:37:260:37:30

Obviously there's... there's Natalie Portman,

0:37:300:37:33

Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey. I know that...

0:37:330:37:36

I think Natalie Portman's fiance at the time, or whoever,

0:37:360:37:42

-her current husband was in it.

-Who's he?

-Benjamin Millepied, I think.

0:37:420:37:47

-Right.

-I think he was credited in it, as a little part.

0:37:470:37:50

I tell you who's...

0:37:500:37:52

A credited part, isn't it?

0:37:520:37:54

Cos Charlie Hardwick was in Billy Elliot

0:37:540:37:57

-but I don't think she was credited.

-We'll see. Why not?

0:37:570:38:00

Um, who else is in Black Swan?

0:38:000:38:02

I'm trying to think of...

0:38:050:38:07

There's the one who got that massive scandal

0:38:070:38:09

because they said that she hadn't done the ballet dancing.

0:38:090:38:12

I know she was called Sarah. Um... Sarah...Sarah...

0:38:120:38:15

-We've only got ten seconds.

-Ten seconds left.

-Sarah Jayne...

0:38:150:38:18

-Sarah Jayne...

-Quickly.

-Dunn. Sarah Jayne Dunn, we'll say.

0:38:200:38:24

So, Charlie Hardwick, Sarah Jayne Dunn and...

0:38:240:38:26

OK, that's your time up.

0:38:260:38:27

Sounds like you've just arrived on three answers. What are they?

0:38:270:38:30

-Right, Charlie Hardwick.

-Charlie Hardwick for...?

-Billy Elliot.

0:38:300:38:33

-Billy Elliot.

-Um, Sarah Jane Dunn.

0:38:330:38:37

-Sarah Jane Dunn for...?

-Black Swan.

0:38:370:38:39

-Black Swan.

-And Benjamin Millepied.

0:38:390:38:44

-And Benjamin Millepied?

-For Black Swan.

0:38:440:38:47

Of those three, which is your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:38:470:38:50

-The last one.

-Benjamin Millepied.

-Benny Millipede. We'll put him last.

0:38:500:38:53

-OK. Least likely to be pointless?

-Charlie Hardwick.

-No... OK.

0:38:530:38:56

-The other one?

-I've made up Sarah Jayne Dunn, so put it.

0:38:560:38:59

Sarah Jayne Dunn. If she's at home watching now,

0:38:590:39:01

you really have made her up. That's going to please her.

0:39:010:39:03

We'll put those up on the board in that order and here they are.

0:39:030:39:08

Three good answers on the board. Maybe one of those is pointless.

0:39:140:39:17

-Maybe all three of them are pointless.

-Oh!

0:39:170:39:19

What would you do with your money if you won? Paul first.

0:39:190:39:23

I really would like to go to Norway.

0:39:230:39:26

I lived with a Norwegian girl this year

0:39:260:39:28

and she's said it's amazing so I'd love to go.

0:39:280:39:31

It IS amazing, absolutely fantastic. Mary, how about you?

0:39:310:39:35

I'd like to take the family on a weekend to Venice.

0:39:350:39:38

OK, very best of luck. Three good answers, as I say.

0:39:380:39:42

Let us find out if any of them are right

0:39:420:39:43

and if any of them are pointless and will win you the jackpot.

0:39:430:39:46

Sarah Jayne Dunn. We were looking for cast members from Black Swan.

0:39:460:39:50

You thought it was your least likely to be pointless.

0:39:500:39:53

Let's see if it's right and how many people said it.

0:39:530:39:55

For £1,250, might it be pointless, Sarah Jayne Dunn?

0:39:550:39:57

-Ooh!

-Sarah Jayne!

-Bad luck.

0:40:000:40:04

-Let us all down there, Sarah Jayne.

-Really has.

0:40:040:40:07

I'm afraid not a correct answer, as it happens,

0:40:070:40:09

so obviously not a pointless answer.

0:40:090:40:10

Only two more shots at today's jackpot.

0:40:100:40:13

Charlie Hardwick was your next answer.

0:40:130:40:14

In this case, we were looking for cast members from Billy Elliot.

0:40:140:40:17

Charlie Hardwick has to be pointless for you to win the jackpot,

0:40:170:40:20

so let's see how many people said Charlie Hardwick.

0:40:200:40:22

-Ooh, it's right.

-Ooh, no!

-LAUGHTER

0:40:250:40:28

Charlie Hardwick is right. Sarah Jayne Dunn was incorrect.

0:40:280:40:31

Charlie Hardwick is absolutely right,

0:40:310:40:33

taking us down, through the teens, into single figures. Down it goes.

0:40:330:40:36

Surely there's only one place this can go and it does!

0:40:360:40:38

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:40:380:40:41

Charlie Hardwick. That was superb!

0:40:410:40:44

Very well done indeed!

0:40:440:40:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:40:460:40:48

There we go! Many congratulations to Paul and Mary.

0:40:500:40:54

Charlie Hardwick, a pointless answer.

0:40:540:40:56

Oh, yeah, you're heading to Venice, you're heading to Norway.

0:40:560:41:00

This is great. You're taking home that jackpot of £1,250.

0:41:000:41:02

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:41:020:41:04

APPLAUSE

0:41:040:41:07

Unbelievable. Another display of knowledge from somewhere.

0:41:090:41:11

-So, is that someone that you have met?

-Yes.

-Yeah, sort of.

0:41:110:41:14

-That's a stroke of luck!

-She's quite...

0:41:140:41:16

She's quite a big star in Emmerdale now.

0:41:160:41:19

Yes, she's in Emmerdale, you're right.

0:41:190:41:20

-But you knew her at the time...?

-From when she was in live theatre.

0:41:200:41:24

-Well, you owe her a drink.

-We do!

-I will say that for you.

0:41:240:41:28

Now, talk us through, Paul, this other answer.

0:41:280:41:31

Because I'm sure the person who...was a choreographer

0:41:310:41:35

that she married, who was in Black Swan,

0:41:350:41:38

and he got a little bit part,

0:41:380:41:40

being nasty to Natalie Portman in it.

0:41:400:41:41

Ah, Benjamin Millepied? You're absolutely right.

0:41:410:41:44

He was a pointless answer! Well done!

0:41:440:41:46

APPLAUSE

0:41:460:41:48

-That's good going, isn't it?

-Yeah!

0:41:480:41:51

That's very impressive.

0:41:530:41:55

That's one each as well, so you've earned your money.

0:41:550:41:57

Let's look at the pointless answers in the different categories.

0:41:570:42:00

We'll start with Black Swan.

0:42:000:42:02

There's Benjamin Millepied, right at the top.

0:42:020:42:04

Everyone pointless there, apart from Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis,

0:42:070:42:10

Vincent Cassel, Winona Ryder and Barbara Hershey.

0:42:100:42:13

Well done if you said anyone else.

0:42:130:42:15

We'll move on to Billy Elliot.

0:42:150:42:18

Everyone in that film pointless,

0:42:230:42:25

apart from Julie Walters, Jamie Bell and Gary Lewis.

0:42:250:42:28

Well done if you said anyone else. And, finally, The Red Shoes.

0:42:280:42:31

Everyone in that film, apart from Moira Shearer,

0:42:380:42:40

Anton Walbrook and Robert Helpmann.

0:42:400:42:42

Very well done if you said anybody else in that film

0:42:420:42:45

and congratulations to you in the studio.

0:42:450:42:47

Every round, you seemed to pull something out from somewhere.

0:42:470:42:50

-It's very impressive and a very well-earned jackpot.

-Thank you.

0:42:500:42:53

Thank you very much indeed.

0:42:530:42:54

Thanks, once again, to our winning players, Paul and Mary,

0:42:540:42:57

who go away with today's jackpot of £1,250. Very well done.

0:42:570:43:01

-Yay!

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:43:010:43:03

Join us next time,

0:43:060:43:07

when we'll put more obscure knowledge to the test on Pointless.

0:43:070:43:10

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:100:43:12

And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:120:43:14

APPLAUSE

0:43:140:43:17

Quiz in which contestants try to score as few points as possible by plumbing the depths of their general knowledge to come up with the answers no-one else can think of. Presented by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman.
