Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:220:00:23

Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong and welcome to Pointless,

0:00:230:00:25

the show where we are always striving to find

0:00:250:00:27

the most obscure answers. Let's meet today's players.

0:00:270:00:30

-And couple number one.

-Hi, my name's Tom.

0:00:330:00:36

This is my girlfriend, Emilia.

0:00:360:00:38

I'm from Liverpool and she's from Cardiff.

0:00:380:00:40

-Couple number two.

-Hi, I'm Chris.

0:00:400:00:42

This is my daughter, Laura.

0:00:420:00:43

I'm from North Yorkshire and she's from South Shields.

0:00:430:00:46

-Couple number three.

-Hi, I'm Daryl.

0:00:460:00:48

This is my best friend, Hamza, and we're from Edinburgh.

0:00:480:00:51

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:510:00:52

Hi, I'm David. This is my flatmate, work colleague,

0:00:520:00:55

friend and life influence, Sam.

0:00:550:00:58

We're from London.

0:00:580:00:59

Oh, you're from London. And these are today's contestants.

0:00:590:01:01

APPLAUSE

0:01:010:01:03

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

0:01:030:01:06

We'll find out more about you throughout the show

0:01:060:01:08

as it goes along. So that just leaves one more person

0:01:080:01:10

for me to introduce. He's here to put his foot down,

0:01:100:01:12

and I'm here to ensure it doesn't squash any of today's players.

0:01:120:01:15

-It's my Pointless friend. It's Richard.

-Hiya.

0:01:150:01:18

Hi, everybody.

0:01:180:01:19

Good afternoon to you.

0:01:210:01:22

-And to you.

-Two returning pairs from that last show.

0:01:220:01:25

Hamza and Daryl on podium two got all the way through

0:01:250:01:27

to the head-to-head, so they're going to be tough to beat.

0:01:270:01:29

And on podium two, Laura and Chris.

0:01:290:01:32

Who did less well last time, I think it's fair to say,

0:01:320:01:34

but are very, very keen to do better today.

0:01:340:01:37

And today will be a very good day to do well.

0:01:370:01:39

Wouldn't it just? We're turning into a bank.

0:01:390:01:41

Yes, £7,000 up for grabs,

0:01:410:01:43

-which would be very nice to have, wouldn't it?

-Wouldn't that be nice?

0:01:430:01:46

-Wouldn't it?

-Oh, how nice.

0:01:460:01:48

So, yes, Joe and Josh didn't win the jackpot last time.

0:01:480:01:50

We're adding another £1,000 to that.

0:01:500:01:52

So, yes, as you've just gathered, today's jackpot starts off,

0:01:520:01:54

there it is, officially £7,000.

0:01:540:01:57

Very exciting indeed.

0:01:570:01:58

Right, if everyone's ready, let's play Pointless.

0:02:000:02:02

So the rule is, the pair with the highest score

0:02:070:02:10

at the end of each round will be eliminated. That is it.

0:02:100:02:14

That's all you have to remember. Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:140:02:16

Our first category this afternoon is...

0:02:160:02:18

Can you all decide in your pairs who's going to go first,

0:02:220:02:24

who's going to go second?

0:02:240:02:26

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

0:02:260:02:28

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:310:02:34

-Richard.

-Yeah, actually, on each board, we're going to show you

0:02:370:02:40

seven general knowledge questions, but the answer to each of them

0:02:400:02:43

is also the name of a book of the Bible.

0:02:430:02:45

So can you give us the most obscure answers?

0:02:450:02:47

There's going to be 14 in all to have a go at at home,

0:02:470:02:49

-very best of luck.

-Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:02:490:02:51

OK, let's reveal our first board of clues.

0:02:510:02:54

Here they are, seven of them.

0:02:540:02:55

I'm going to read all of those again.

0:03:250:03:27

Tom, a warm welcome to Pointless.

0:03:530:03:56

-Thank you.

-Now, you've come from Liverpool.

0:03:560:03:59

Yeah, but I'm studying in Edinburgh at the minute.

0:03:590:04:02

I see. And what are you studying?

0:04:020:04:04

I'm doing a PhD in social policy.

0:04:040:04:06

Right. Did you do your degree at Edinburgh as well?

0:04:060:04:08

Yeah, I did my undergraduate and my master's degree there as well.

0:04:080:04:11

And it's a four-year course.

0:04:110:04:12

-Yeah, I know.

-You must have been there for years!

0:04:120:04:14

-Yeah!

-What do you like getting up to when you're not working hard on...?

0:04:140:04:19

I like football, I like music, I really like theatre...

0:04:190:04:24

like acting and trying to write stuff.

0:04:240:04:27

-So, yeah.

-And you find time to do all that?

0:04:270:04:30

It might be at the detriment of my academic career, maybe.

0:04:300:04:33

Well, that's OK. It's the enhancement of your life,

0:04:330:04:35

-I should think.

-Yeah, exactly.

0:04:350:04:36

Now, do you think when you finally leave Edinburgh, decades from now,

0:04:360:04:39

will you...? I mean, you're mostly Scottish these days.

0:04:390:04:42

-Yeah, I know.

-Do you think you might stay up there, or do you think

0:04:420:04:46

-you'd come back down to England?

-I think, yeah, potentially.

0:04:460:04:48

It's a lovely... I really like Glasgow as well.

0:04:480:04:50

Yeah, another beautiful place.

0:04:500:04:52

But I'd like to move down to Liverpool

0:04:520:04:54

for a little bit after that.

0:04:540:04:55

OK. Now, Tom, how do you find our board of Bible books?

0:04:550:04:59

Yeah, it's OK.

0:04:590:05:01

I'm a bit annoyed because I used to get told I look like the lead singer

0:05:010:05:05

of The Kooks back when I had really long hair,

0:05:050:05:07

but I can't remember his first name.

0:05:070:05:09

So I think I'm going to go for another one that I know,

0:05:100:05:15

which is the name that goes before Andronicus

0:05:150:05:18

to give the title of a Shakespearean tragedy, which is Titus.

0:05:180:05:21

Titus Andronicus, says Tom. Titus. Let's see if that's right.

0:05:210:05:23

Let's see how many of our 100 said it.

0:05:230:05:25

It's right.

0:05:280:05:29

23. Not a bad start to the show at all.

0:05:380:05:40

Nice start, Tom. Yeah, it's a letter in the New Testament.

0:05:400:05:43

They did Titus Andronicus at The Globe in 2014.

0:05:430:05:46

Over 100 people fainted cos it was so gory.

0:05:460:05:48

It is quite gory, yeah.

0:05:480:05:50

They didn't hold back on the gore.

0:05:500:05:52

No. I imagine if you were in one of those productions,

0:05:520:05:54

you're going to keep a tally of how many people have fainted each night,

0:05:540:05:57

-and if it's no-one, you're going to feel...

-Yeah, you think you've had

0:05:570:06:00

-a terrible... I mean, we're the same with our audience, aren't we?

-Yeah.

0:06:000:06:03

Occasionally, you just see them being passed backwards by security.

0:06:030:06:06

Thus far, three of them have gone, but the rest, absolutely fine.

0:06:060:06:09

There was a really sweet moment a few shows back

0:06:090:06:11

when you selected a lady from the front row

0:06:110:06:13

and you danced with her very tenderly.

0:06:130:06:15

-Yeah, that's exactly...

-Just during the head-to-head round,

0:06:150:06:18

and they filmed it beautifully.

0:06:180:06:19

Lots of soft fades and, you know, it was nice.

0:06:190:06:22

I like it when you go down on your knees in the centre circle there

0:06:220:06:25

and you just go like that... And people throw money at you.

0:06:250:06:27

I've never known how you do it. It's very magnetic, your personality.

0:06:270:06:30

-Yeah.

-It's extraordinary.

-It's just nice to give a bit back, isn't it?

0:06:300:06:33

Go down and just be there.

0:06:330:06:36

It's not really giving a bit back, is it,

0:06:360:06:37

taking money off the audience?

0:06:370:06:39

-But I know what you mean.

-Yeah.

-I know what you mean.

0:06:390:06:42

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:06:420:06:44

Laura, welcome back to Pointless.

0:06:440:06:46

Remind us what you do, Laura.

0:06:460:06:48

I'm a physio and I work in critical care.

0:06:480:06:50

A physio. And what part of physio do you specialise in?

0:06:500:06:53

-Respiratory physio.

-I see.

0:06:530:06:55

So any lung conditions I tend to deal with

0:06:550:06:58

and then any rehab with someone who's been in critical care,

0:06:580:07:01

-often need a bit of rehab to get back on their feet.

-OK.

0:07:010:07:04

And is that also muscular, spinal and all that kind of stuff as well?

0:07:040:07:07

-It can be anything. It's quite varied.

-There we are.

0:07:070:07:09

Now, Laura, what are you going to go for on this board?

0:07:090:07:13

I think I'm going to go for the bottom one -

0:07:130:07:16

the surname of the musician who had a hit with Uptown Girl

0:07:160:07:19

and say his surname was Joel.

0:07:190:07:22

Joel, says Laura.

0:07:220:07:24

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

0:07:240:07:26

It's right.

0:07:290:07:31

23 is our only score at this point.

0:07:310:07:32

53 for Joel.

0:07:320:07:34

Yeah, a book of the Old Testament, Joel.

0:07:380:07:39

And that is Billy Joel's only UK number one.

0:07:390:07:42

There we are. Thank you very much indeed.

0:07:420:07:44

Now, Daryl, welcome back to Pointless.

0:07:440:07:46

-Hi.

-Here from Edinburgh. What do you do, Daryl? Remind us.

0:07:460:07:49

I'm a post office manager.

0:07:490:07:51

Managing a post office.

0:07:510:07:52

And it's a post office in a shop?

0:07:520:07:54

-Yes.

-So you're kind of a shop within a shop.

0:07:540:07:56

Have Tom and Emilia ever come to your post office?

0:07:560:07:59

Erm... He does look familiar.

0:07:590:08:02

I've maybe served him at one point.

0:08:020:08:03

No, you're thinking of the lead singer of The Kooks.

0:08:030:08:06

Just imagine Tom with slightly longer...

0:08:060:08:09

That's probably what it is.

0:08:090:08:11

Daryl, what would you like to go for on this board?

0:08:110:08:14

Well, it's a bit of a dodgy subject for me.

0:08:140:08:18

I think I know one of them, but it's too high,

0:08:180:08:20

so I'm going to go for the top one and say Exodus.

0:08:200:08:23

Exodus, says Daryl.

0:08:230:08:25

Exodus. Let's see how many of our 100 people got that.

0:08:250:08:28

Well, it's right. 53 and 23, our only two scores...

0:08:300:08:33

78 there. That's a relief for Laura.

0:08:330:08:36

But a high score for Daryl.

0:08:360:08:37

78 for Exodus.

0:08:370:08:39

Very hard to say Exodus without then immediately singing

0:08:390:08:41

-the Bob Marley song.

-Isn't it just?

-I've got it in my head.

0:08:410:08:44

I know there'll be at least a million people at home

0:08:440:08:46

-who've got that song in their head right now.

-Movement of the people.

0:08:460:08:49

There we are. Thank you very much indeed.

0:08:490:08:51

Now then, Sam, a warm welcome to Pointless.

0:08:510:08:54

Nice to have you here, Sam. What do you do?

0:08:540:08:55

I work at the Science Museum in London.

0:08:550:08:58

I'm the... Science communicator would probably be the term.

0:08:580:09:01

Now, that's fun.

0:09:010:09:02

-Yeah, it is.

-That's fun.

-It's like being a Redcoat.

0:09:020:09:04

It's like being a Redcoat, although I wouldn't say that too much

0:09:040:09:07

around the Science Museum. But it is,

0:09:070:09:09

-you're basically enthusing people.

-Yes.

0:09:090:09:11

And people of all ages or do you aim particularly at children?

0:09:110:09:13

Well, I work for a department called Punk Science...

0:09:130:09:17

-Yeah, now you're talking.

-..the resident comedy team.

0:09:170:09:19

So we do adults, teenagers and families mainly.

0:09:190:09:22

A bit of slapstick?

0:09:220:09:24

Usually, yeah, there's a bit where one of us will fall over or...

0:09:240:09:27

Always funny.

0:09:270:09:28

We get people to eat bugs, and if they don't eat the bugs,

0:09:280:09:31

one of us has to eat the bugs.

0:09:310:09:33

-That's good.

-Infra-redcoats would be a good name for them.

0:09:330:09:36

LAUGHTER

0:09:360:09:37

And you could have your name written in infrared

0:09:370:09:40

and if people want to know what your name was,

0:09:400:09:41

they had to shine a light on it that shows up infrared.

0:09:410:09:44

-That's a good idea.

-Yeah.

0:09:440:09:45

Now, Sam, what would you like to go for on this board?

0:09:450:09:48

This board is all yours.

0:09:480:09:49

-You can talk us through it and fill in all the blanks.

-OK.

0:09:490:09:52

So the first name of the guy from The Kooks, I believe, is Luke.

0:09:520:09:56

I think the main divisions of plays, ballets and operas,

0:09:560:09:59

I'd guess at acts.

0:09:590:10:02

That's Jude, Hey Jude.

0:10:020:10:04

And then it's Mark Spitz.

0:10:040:10:05

I'm not too sure on acts for definite,

0:10:070:10:09

so I think I'm going to go for The Kooks and say Luke.

0:10:090:10:12

OK. Kooks lead singer is Luke, says Sam.

0:10:120:10:15

Luke Kook. Let's see how many of our 100 people said Luke.

0:10:150:10:18

It's right.

0:10:210:10:23

Lowest score at the moment is 23.

0:10:240:10:26

Oh, you've passed 23.

0:10:260:10:28

You go down to 8, Sam. APPLAUSE

0:10:280:10:30

This is a good score.

0:10:310:10:32

Very nice, Sam. Yeah, Luke Pritchard is his name.

0:10:350:10:37

Now, you knew all the answers on the board

0:10:370:10:39

and you chose the lowest one of the ones you knew as well,

0:10:390:10:41

so very, very well done. You couldn't have played it any better.

0:10:410:10:44

You were right about acts.

0:10:440:10:47

That would have scored you 36.

0:10:470:10:49

Hey Jude, big scorer unsurprisingly.

0:10:490:10:52

90 for that.

0:10:520:10:54

So, well avoided, everybody.

0:10:540:10:55

And it is Mark Spitz.

0:10:550:10:57

And that would have scored you 51.

0:10:570:11:00

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:11:000:11:01

So, we're halfway through the round. Let's take a look at those scores.

0:11:010:11:04

Sam, lowest score of 8, on the far podium.

0:11:040:11:07

Then up to 23, Tom and Emilia.

0:11:070:11:08

Up to 53 where we find Laura and Chris.

0:11:080:11:11

And 78 is Daryl and Hamza.

0:11:110:11:13

Hamza, we need a low score from you,

0:11:130:11:15

so I hope the next board has something on it

0:11:150:11:17

that you like the look of.

0:11:170:11:18

We're going to come back down the line now.

0:11:180:11:19

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:11:190:11:22

OK, let's put seven more clues up on the board, and here they come.

0:11:230:11:26

I'll read those all one last time.

0:11:540:11:57

-Now, David, welcome to Pointless.

-Hello.

0:12:220:12:24

Good to have you here. What do you do, Dave?

0:12:240:12:26

Well, I work in museums as well. So I do museum education.

0:12:260:12:29

I've worked in a number of museums, including the Science Museum.

0:12:290:12:32

But you're not currently at the Science Museum?

0:12:320:12:34

I kind of am on one day a week, but I've also worked at

0:12:340:12:36

-the London Transport Museum and the Design Museum as well.

-Freelance.

0:12:360:12:39

-Wow! Moonlighting.

-Yeah, I get around.

0:12:390:12:42

But that's nice, all those different disciplines. You must learn so much.

0:12:420:12:45

Yeah, I know a lot about some really, I suppose, obscure things.

0:12:450:12:48

I don't think anything's going to help me today, though.

0:12:480:12:51

Well, you say that.

0:12:510:12:52

Transport, these sorts of things come up all the time.

0:12:520:12:54

And there's Sam just stuck in his punk science groove.

0:12:540:12:56

You're all over the shop. This is wonderful.

0:12:560:12:59

Are you doing much the same sort of thing, communicating? Or is it a...

0:12:590:13:02

Yeah. So usually we have a subject which we have to, I suppose,

0:13:020:13:04

bring to young people,

0:13:040:13:05

make sure they understand what's involved with that.

0:13:050:13:08

So with the Transport Museum,

0:13:080:13:09

I was doing a lot of stuff around transport engineering

0:13:090:13:11

-and trying to get young people into engineering.

-Good for you.

0:13:110:13:14

Well, listen, you're on 8 -

0:13:140:13:15

a wonderful low score from Sam in the first pass -

0:13:150:13:17

which means 69 or less sees you very comfortably into Round Two.

0:13:170:13:21

Fantastic. Well, I think I know all but one there.

0:13:210:13:24

But I'm going to go for the bottom one.

0:13:240:13:26

I'm going to go for Matthew.

0:13:260:13:28

Matthew.

0:13:280:13:30

Matthew Wright. OK. Well, let's see if that's right.

0:13:300:13:32

Let's see if you can get below that red line.

0:13:320:13:34

It's right. You are into Round Two.

0:13:370:13:41

Well done. 30. APPLAUSE

0:13:420:13:46

38 is your total.

0:13:460:13:47

Well played, David.

0:13:470:13:49

Yeah, Matthew Wright, and Matthew, obviously one of the Gospels.

0:13:490:13:52

-Thank you very much.

-Pleasure.

-Thank you.

0:13:520:13:54

-Now, Hamza.

-Hello.

-Welcome back.

-Thank you.

0:13:540:13:56

Welcome back. You've got a little bit of a mountain to climb here.

0:13:560:13:59

-Yeah.

-But I think if anyone can, Hamza, I think you can.

0:13:590:14:02

Remind us what you do.

0:14:020:14:03

I work in the finance and operations department of a supermarket

0:14:030:14:07

and I'm a qualified journalist.

0:14:070:14:08

I'm trying to find a job in the media somewhere.

0:14:080:14:10

Trying to find a job in media. In sports journalism?

0:14:100:14:12

-Preferably.

-Do you have a blog or something like that?

0:14:120:14:15

Yeah, I have a press blog that I write articles

0:14:150:14:18

maybe a couple times a week or a month or whatever,

0:14:180:14:20

usually on football.

0:14:200:14:21

And also I've actually got an open day with the team that I support,

0:14:210:14:25

Hibernian, to work on their digital team.

0:14:250:14:28

Oh, that would be a dream, wouldn't it?

0:14:280:14:30

You'd actually be part of the Hibs team then?

0:14:300:14:32

-I wouldn't say this, but, yeah.

-Yeah, brilliant.

0:14:320:14:35

OK. Now, there you are, 78, the highest scorers, Hamza.

0:14:350:14:37

We need a low score from you.

0:14:370:14:39

OK, my mother is an RE teacher,

0:14:390:14:42

so when this came up, I thought...

0:14:420:14:45

obviously, I thought, "If I get this wrong,

0:14:450:14:47

"I'm going to be thrown out of the house when I get home."

0:14:470:14:50

I know the second bottom one for definite,

0:14:500:14:52

so I'm going to go for that.

0:14:520:14:54

I think it's Ruth.

0:14:540:14:55

Ruth, says Hamza. Ruth. Let's see if that's right.

0:14:550:14:58

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

0:14:580:15:00

No red line as you're the high-scorers.

0:15:000:15:02

Ruth is right.

0:15:040:15:06

60 for Ruth. APPLAUSE

0:15:080:15:10

Takes your total up to 138.

0:15:100:15:13

Still in the game, but that's a high score.

0:15:130:15:16

Yeah, he's actually called George Ruth.

0:15:160:15:18

And funnily enough, it was a sports writer who gave him that nickname,

0:15:180:15:21

Babe Ruth, as well when he signed for Baltimore as a young man.

0:15:210:15:23

-Cos he was so young?

-Yeah.

0:15:230:15:25

Well, there was a series of young players all signed at the same time.

0:15:250:15:27

-They were called Dunn's babes.

-There we are.

0:15:270:15:29

-You see, the power of a sports writer.

-There you are.

0:15:290:15:32

-There's still 60 people know the name.

-Exactly.

0:15:320:15:34

A good sports nickname.

0:15:340:15:35

-Now, Chris, welcome back.

-Thank you.

0:15:350:15:38

Now, remind us what you do, Chris.

0:15:380:15:41

I'm a retired nurse,

0:15:410:15:43

so I don't really do very much except keep myself entertained.

0:15:430:15:47

And how do you keep yourself entertained?

0:15:470:15:49

I like to do Pilates, I like to do yoga...

0:15:490:15:52

And how often do you do that?

0:15:520:15:54

-Is that every week you do a bit of Pilates and a bit of yoga?

-Yeah.

0:15:540:15:56

So that must keep you incredibly fit.

0:15:560:15:58

Well, a bit more flexible.

0:15:580:16:01

There we are, exactly.

0:16:010:16:03

Now, 53 is your score.

0:16:030:16:05

84 or less gets you through.

0:16:050:16:08

Erm...I know three definitely,

0:16:080:16:13

but I don't know what one would be the lowest score.

0:16:130:16:15

I think I'll go for Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, and say Genesis.

0:16:170:16:22

Genesis, says Chris. Here is your red line.

0:16:220:16:25

Get below that with Genesis, you're into Round Two.

0:16:250:16:27

Let's see how many of our 100 got Genesis.

0:16:270:16:30

It's right and you're through, well done.

0:16:330:16:34

Oh, just. 76. APPLAUSE

0:16:340:16:38

Cutting it a bit fine, but it's done the job.

0:16:380:16:40

129 is your total, Chris.

0:16:400:16:42

Yeah, first book of the Bible, of course. And Genesis, the band -

0:16:420:16:45

six UK number one albums.

0:16:450:16:47

Now then, Emilia, a very warm welcome to Pointless,

0:16:470:16:50

lovely to have you here.

0:16:500:16:51

-And what do you do, Emilia?

-I'm a politics student at Edinburgh.

0:16:510:16:54

-At Edinburgh, which is where you ran into Tom?

-Yeah.

0:16:540:16:57

With his sociology?

0:16:570:16:58

No, we met through the student newspaper.

0:16:580:17:01

Ah. What were you doing on the student newspaper?

0:17:010:17:03

I was the editor of the opinion, comment-type section.

0:17:030:17:06

Is it quite racy, the opinions, comment-type section?

0:17:060:17:09

Sometimes it's a bit...

0:17:090:17:11

It needs to be filtered and vetoed, which was my role.

0:17:110:17:14

OK. But you've got people all around sending you stuff?

0:17:140:17:17

Sending you pictures from late-night bars.

0:17:170:17:19

-If only. That would make it a bit more interesting.

-OK.

0:17:190:17:22

But it was gossip, basically, was it?

0:17:220:17:24

No, it's more kind of opinion pieces on current events.

0:17:240:17:28

So political things that happened in the week or university politics,

0:17:280:17:31

-things like that.

-I see. Opinion and comment,

0:17:310:17:34

not scurrilous gossip from late-night bars at all.

0:17:340:17:36

Now, Emilia, you're on 23.

0:17:360:17:38

The great news is thanks to...a mixture of thanks to Tom

0:17:380:17:41

and the high scores from Hamza and Daryl,

0:17:410:17:44

-it doesn't matter what you score here.

-OK.

0:17:440:17:46

So talk us through the board, fill in all the blanks

0:17:460:17:49

and then pick the one you want to submit.

0:17:490:17:51

I think the phone calls one is numbers. You need to dial numbers.

0:17:510:17:55

Short sayings...idioms maybe. I don't know.

0:17:550:17:58

And I have no idea about the top two,

0:17:580:18:00

I've never read those books or watched MasterChef.

0:18:000:18:04

So, yeah, to make phone calls, you need to dial numbers. I hope.

0:18:040:18:07

Numbers?

0:18:070:18:08

Numbers. That was like a line from a film.

0:18:080:18:10

"To make phone calls, you need to dial numbers,"

0:18:100:18:12

and everyone runs off.

0:18:120:18:13

OK, so numbers says Emilia.

0:18:130:18:15

No red line for you as you're already through.

0:18:150:18:17

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

0:18:170:18:19

Look at that, 83.

0:18:240:18:26

I thought that could

0:18:260:18:27

have gone all the way down, but it didn't.

0:18:270:18:29

106 is your score, but you're through anyway.

0:18:290:18:31

You thought that was going to go down further than 83?

0:18:310:18:33

I thought it might have done.

0:18:330:18:35

What, to make phone calls, you need to dial these?

0:18:350:18:37

Well...

0:18:370:18:38

Or did you think it was going to be operators?

0:18:380:18:41

No, exactly, yes.

0:18:410:18:42

Yes, you're right. You're right.

0:18:420:18:44

Oh, thank you.

0:18:440:18:45

Now, let's take a look at these.

0:18:450:18:47

-Idioms are short sayings, of course, but this one is...

-Proverbs.

0:18:470:18:50

Proverbs, yeah.

0:18:500:18:52

That would have scored you 27 points.

0:18:520:18:54

Best answer on the board is this next one,

0:18:540:18:56

the first name of the author of the Alex Cross series.

0:18:560:18:58

I was getting it confused with Alex Rider,

0:18:580:19:00

which is Anthony Horowitz, but this is James Patterson.

0:19:000:19:03

-Ah.

-So, it would have scored you 10 points if you said James.

0:19:030:19:06

-And the first name of the Australian chef...

-John.

0:19:060:19:08

Yeah, John Torode. And 35 points for that.

0:19:080:19:11

There we are. Thank you very much. Well, at the end of our first round,

0:19:110:19:14

the pair we're having to say goodbye to, it's Hamza and Daryl.

0:19:140:19:16

One of our returning pairs.

0:19:160:19:18

And you did so well last time. I'm sorry.

0:19:180:19:19

You know what, you've made a lot of Hearts fans very happy

0:19:190:19:22

by being knocked out in the first round.

0:19:220:19:24

-LAUGHTER

-I didn't even think of that.

0:19:240:19:25

Hamza, Daryl, it's been wonderful having you on the show.

0:19:250:19:28

Thank you so much for playing. Hamza and Daryl.

0:19:280:19:30

APPLAUSE

0:19:300:19:32

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

0:19:320:19:35

Well done, everyone. We've made it through to Round Two.

0:19:400:19:43

Very exciting. Laura and Chris, lovely to have you in Round Two.

0:19:430:19:46

And well done, Sam,

0:19:460:19:48

our lowest individual scorer there with Luke from The Kooks.

0:19:480:19:51

Yeah, best of luck to all three pairs.

0:19:510:19:53

We'll have to say goodbye to another pair at the end of this round,

0:19:530:19:55

but that's a way off yet.

0:19:550:19:56

Our category for Round Two is...

0:19:560:19:59

Can you all decide in your pairs who's going to go first,

0:20:010:20:04

who's going to go second?

0:20:040:20:05

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

0:20:050:20:07

OK, let's find out what the question is. Here it comes.

0:20:100:20:12

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name...

0:20:120:20:16

-Richard.

-Yeah, looking for the name of any artist or featured artist

0:20:250:20:28

who appeared on one of these songs, please.

0:20:280:20:30

The 14 most streamed songs of the year,

0:20:300:20:31

according to the Official Charts Company.

0:20:310:20:33

-Very best of luck.

-OK, thank you very much indeed.

0:20:330:20:36

So, Emilia, to you first.

0:20:360:20:39

Erm...I'm a bit rubbish at pop music,

0:20:390:20:42

so I'm going to go for quite...

0:20:420:20:44

Well, what I hope is an obvious guess

0:20:440:20:45

and that it won't just be 100, and say Rita Ora.

0:20:450:20:49

Rita Ora, says Emilia. Rita Ora.

0:20:490:20:52

Let's see how many of our 100 people said it. Is it right?

0:20:520:20:54

Ohh!

0:20:570:20:59

Oh, I thought that was a brilliant answer, Emilia.

0:20:590:21:02

Clearly not on that list, I'm afraid.

0:21:020:21:03

Scores you 100 points. Sorry.

0:21:030:21:05

Yeah, sorry, Emilia. All sorts of big names here, but not Rita Ora.

0:21:050:21:08

That was an unfortunate guess.

0:21:080:21:11

Thanks very much. Now then, Laura.

0:21:110:21:13

This is one of these rounds where I know loads of answers.

0:21:150:21:17

And when people start saying them, I'm going to be like,

0:21:170:21:20

-"Oh, I should have said that!"

-Hm.

0:21:200:21:22

But at the minute, I can't think of any.

0:21:220:21:23

I'm going to say...

0:21:250:21:28

Miley Cyrus.

0:21:280:21:29

Miley Cyrus.

0:21:290:21:31

Miley Cyrus. OK. Well, let's see if that's right.

0:21:310:21:34

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

0:21:340:21:36

No!

0:21:380:21:40

Bad luck. Miley Cyrus, also an incorrect answer.

0:21:400:21:43

Oh, that's a relief for Emilia there.

0:21:430:21:45

-A bit of company up there on 100.

-You're welcome!

0:21:450:21:47

Thus far, it's terrific stuff. Isn't it?

0:21:470:21:49

-It really is terrific stuff.

-Isn't it going well.

0:21:490:21:52

Someone's going to get one in a minute, I can feel it in my bones.

0:21:520:21:55

Yes. Yes, yes, yes.

0:21:550:21:58

Sam.

0:21:580:22:00

-Sam.

-Yeah. Erm...

0:22:000:22:02

Not a great category, but I'm going to tempt fate now

0:22:030:22:06

and say I'm going to go safe, so it will probably be wrong.

0:22:060:22:09

I'm going to say Beyonce.

0:22:090:22:11

Beyonce, says Sam. Let's see if that's right.

0:22:110:22:13

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

0:22:130:22:16

It's right. We've got a correct answer there. Well done, Sam.

0:22:190:22:23

Beyonce taking you way down

0:22:230:22:24

the tower, down to 18. Well done.

0:22:240:22:26

APPLAUSE

0:22:260:22:28

Yeah, Drunk In Love, a Beyonce song,

0:22:330:22:35

-is the 33rd most streamed song of the year.

-There we are.

0:22:350:22:38

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

0:22:380:22:40

so let's take a look at those scores. 18, Sam. Well done.

0:22:400:22:43

Sam and David looking pretty good for the head-to-head at this point.

0:22:430:22:46

But I'm afraid 100 is where we find Chris, Emilia and Tom...

0:22:460:22:49

So, Chris and Tom, you two have to come up with the lowest possible

0:22:490:22:53

scoring streamed song from 2014 as you can. Good luck with that.

0:22:530:22:56

We're going to come back down the line now.

0:22:560:22:58

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:22:580:23:01

OK. Now, David, remember, we're looking for any artist

0:23:020:23:05

who featured on one of the top 40 streamed songs of 2014.

0:23:050:23:10

You're on 18. If you can score 81 or less, you're home and dry.

0:23:100:23:14

OK. Well, I have the sort of popular culture reference

0:23:140:23:17

of a High Court judge, so I'm really not too confident about this.

0:23:170:23:20

But I'm going to go for one, which I think

0:23:200:23:22

he's probably appeared on a few singles.

0:23:220:23:24

I'm going to go for Pharrell.

0:23:240:23:26

-Pharrell?

-Hm.

-OK. Pharrell.

0:23:260:23:29

Let's see if Pharrell is right.

0:23:290:23:31

If you can get below this red line with Pharrell,

0:23:310:23:33

you are through to the next round.

0:23:330:23:35

Let's see how many of our 100 people went with Pharrell.

0:23:350:23:37

It's right and you're through.

0:23:400:23:43

Well, 18 is what Sam scored. 22 is what you score. Very well done.

0:23:440:23:48

APPLAUSE

0:23:480:23:50

40 is your total.

0:23:500:23:51

Well played, David.

0:23:510:23:53

Yeah, he's number two on the list with Happy.

0:23:530:23:55

-Pharrell Williams.

-Thank you very much.

0:23:550:23:57

Now then, Chris.

0:23:570:23:59

-Now, we have a contest on our hands here, Chris.

-We do.

0:23:590:24:02

This is exciting.

0:24:020:24:04

I hardly know what streamed means.

0:24:040:24:06

LAUGHTER

0:24:060:24:08

But I think there was a very popular song by Robin Thicke,

0:24:100:24:17

so I'm going to go with him.

0:24:170:24:19

Robin Thicke, says Chris. Robin Thicke.

0:24:190:24:22

OK. No red line for you, you're joint high-scorers.

0:24:220:24:25

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Robin Thicke.

0:24:250:24:28

Oh, bad luck, Chris.

0:24:330:24:35

I'm afraid not 2014.

0:24:350:24:37

That scores you 100 points, takes your total up to 200.

0:24:370:24:40

That's right, teamed up with Pharrell of course,

0:24:400:24:42

but not 2014, I'm afraid.

0:24:420:24:44

Thanks very much indeed.

0:24:440:24:45

Now then, Tom. You have a target here, which is 99.

0:24:450:24:49

-99 or less gets you into the head-to-head.

-Yeah.

0:24:500:24:54

-Come on.

-I was going to try and do a risky one

0:24:540:24:56

cos I thought Chris would get a good'un,

0:24:560:24:58

but I think because of that, I'm going to play it quite safe

0:24:580:25:01

and go Ed Sheeran.

0:25:010:25:03

Ed Sheeran, says Tom.

0:25:030:25:06

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Ed Sheeran.

0:25:060:25:08

There's your red line right at the top of the column.

0:25:080:25:10

Can you get below that?

0:25:100:25:12

You can and you do.

0:25:140:25:16

Very well done indeed, Tom. Good answer there. Ed Sheeran.

0:25:160:25:19

32. 132 is your total.

0:25:200:25:22

APPLAUSE Good work.

0:25:220:25:25

Yeah, he had four songs in that top 40, Ed Sheeran,

0:25:260:25:28

Thinking Out Loud being the highest placed.

0:25:280:25:30

He was actually the most streamed artist of all in 2014.

0:25:300:25:33

-Over one billion streams of Ed Sheeran songs.

-What?!

0:25:330:25:37

-That's a river, a torrent.

-Over one billion.

0:25:370:25:39

It really is. Isn't it incredible stuff.

0:25:390:25:41

I'll give you some of the low-scorers

0:25:410:25:43

before we do the pointless answers.

0:25:430:25:44

3 points for Ariana Grande, Ella Henderson, Pitbull.

0:25:440:25:48

You'd have got two points for Magic, Avicii, Meghan Trainor,

0:25:480:25:51

Jess Glynne and John Legend.

0:25:510:25:53

One point for John Newman, Vance Joy, Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX,

0:25:530:25:56

Mr Probz and Imagine Dragons. Bastille also one point.

0:25:560:25:59

Let's take a look at the pointless answers now.

0:25:590:26:01

Huge number one hit from Duke Dumont - I Got You.

0:26:010:26:04

Jax Jones, who's featured on that, was also a pointless answer.

0:26:040:26:07

Idina Menzel, who did Let It Go,

0:26:070:26:09

would be a pointless answer, from Frozen.

0:26:090:26:11

So well done if you said that.

0:26:110:26:13

Juicy J, who teamed up with Katy Perry, was a pointless answer.

0:26:130:26:17

Kesha. Lilly Wood, who teamed up with Robin Schulz,

0:26:170:26:20

was also a pointless answer.

0:26:200:26:22

Lorde, who released Royals, that was one of the top 40 streamed songs.

0:26:220:26:26

Nico & Vinz. Passenger, who did Let Her Go.

0:26:260:26:29

And Route 94, who teamed up with Jess Glynne.

0:26:290:26:32

Also OneRepublic - Counting Stars was a pointless answer.

0:26:320:26:35

Well done if you got any of those.

0:26:350:26:36

Let's take a look at the top three answers,

0:26:360:26:38

the ones that most of our 100 people said.

0:26:380:26:41

Pharrell Williams, there you go, with 22.

0:26:410:26:43

Sam Smith, 28. And we know who's top - Ed Sheeran, 32.

0:26:430:26:47

There we are. Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:26:470:26:49

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

0:26:490:26:51

with their high score of 200... I'm so sorry, Chris and Laura.

0:26:510:26:54

Well, you did twice as well today as you did last time,

0:26:540:26:56

but I'm afraid we still haven't got to see you in the head-to-head.

0:26:560:26:59

I'm so sorry. But it's been lovely having you on the show.

0:26:590:27:02

-Thank you so much for playing.

-Thank you.

-Chris and Laura.

0:27:020:27:04

APPLAUSE

0:27:040:27:06

But for the remaining two pairs, it's now time for our head-to-head.

0:27:060:27:09

Very, very well done, Sam and David, Tom and Emilia.

0:27:140:27:17

You're now one step closer to the final

0:27:170:27:19

and a chance to play for that jackpot.

0:27:190:27:21

That jackpot now being £7,000, just in case we'd forgotten.

0:27:210:27:26

But, yeah, very well done having got to this stage,

0:27:290:27:31

cos obviously, you can now chat before you give your answers,

0:27:310:27:34

play as teams, which is nice.

0:27:340:27:35

The first player to win two questions

0:27:350:27:37

will be playing for the jackpot.

0:27:370:27:38

Well, very, very pleasing that you've both made it.

0:27:380:27:41

You've seen off our two returning pairs, which is no mean feat.

0:27:410:27:44

And I've just worked out why every time I've seen Sam,

0:27:440:27:46

something's been pleasing me about that, and it's because

0:27:460:27:49

that pattern on your jumper...

0:27:490:27:50

My grandparents used to have some lino with that...

0:27:500:27:53

-LAUGHTER

-This is...

-..with that pattern on.

0:27:530:27:55

-This is actually my grandad's jumper.

-Is it really?

0:27:550:27:57

He gave me it. I thought I'd wear it.

0:27:570:27:59

Well, he clearly gets it from the same lino shop

0:27:590:28:01

as my grandparents got their bathroom from.

0:28:010:28:04

How very pleasing. Anyway, so lovely. Thanks, Sam.

0:28:040:28:06

Best of luck to both pairs. Let's play the head-to-head.

0:28:060:28:09

Here is your first question, and it concerns...

0:28:150:28:18

-Richard.

-Yes. Simply going to show you five pictures now

0:28:210:28:24

of famous people called Tony or Anthony.

0:28:240:28:26

Can you tell us who they are, please?

0:28:260:28:28

Thanks very much indeed.

0:28:280:28:29

Let's reveal our five famous Tonys and Anthonys, and here they are.

0:28:290:28:32

There we are. Five famous Tonys or Anthonys.

0:28:570:29:01

Now, Sam and David, you're our low-scorers, so you'll go first.

0:29:010:29:05

Fantastic. Who do you think?

0:29:050:29:08

I think C.

0:29:080:29:10

Yeah, I think C.

0:29:100:29:11

Do you know D for sure?

0:29:120:29:15

We're going to go C.

0:29:150:29:17

I used to have his computer games.

0:29:170:29:19

It's Tony Hawk.

0:29:190:29:21

Tony Hawk, say Sam and David.

0:29:210:29:24

Now, Tom and Emilia, talk us through that board, please.

0:29:240:29:27

We were going to go for Tony Hawk as well.

0:29:270:29:30

B is obviously Tony Blair.

0:29:300:29:32

E is Anthony Head, I think.

0:29:320:29:36

And I think D... I don't know.

0:29:360:29:38

If I was going to guess, it might be Tony Bennett,

0:29:380:29:40

but I'm not sure at all.

0:29:400:29:41

So I think we'll go for E.

0:29:430:29:46

-Yeah? Do you think so?

-Yeah.

0:29:460:29:48

Which is Anthony Head.

0:29:480:29:49

Anthony Head, say Tom and Emilia.

0:29:490:29:52

So we have Tony Hawk and Anthony Head.

0:29:520:29:53

Sam and David said Tony Hawk for C.

0:29:530:29:55

Let's see how many of our 100 people spotted Tony Hawk.

0:29:550:29:58

That's a very good answer.

0:30:080:30:09

Very well done, Sam and David.

0:30:090:30:11

APPLAUSE

0:30:110:30:14

8 for Tony Hawk.

0:30:140:30:15

Tom and Amelia have gone for Anthony Head for E.

0:30:150:30:20

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Anthony Head.

0:30:200:30:22

35. APPLAUSE

0:30:300:30:33

35 for Anthony Head, which means, Sam and David,

0:30:330:30:35

very well done indeed. After one question, you are up 1-0.

0:30:350:30:38

Yeah, Tony Hawk, the skateboarder, of course.

0:30:380:30:40

Best answer on the board, he is, so very well done.

0:30:400:30:43

Couldn't have beaten it.

0:30:430:30:44

I love the fact we've got someone from Liverpool on

0:30:440:30:46

because I genuinely...

0:30:460:30:47

They always say An-thony instead of An-tony.

0:30:470:30:50

-I just like it.

-Is that a Liverpudlian thing?

0:30:500:30:52

It's always An-thony, isn't it?

0:30:520:30:53

I didn't realise it was a Liverpudlian thing, but, yeah.

0:30:530:30:56

They always do, always do.

0:30:560:30:58

-A is...

-Anthony Perkins.

0:30:580:30:59

-An-thony Perkins.

-An-thony Perkins, of course, yes.

0:30:590:31:02

Would've scored you 13 points.

0:31:020:31:04

We'll leave B for a moment.

0:31:040:31:06

-D is...

-Tony Curtis.

-..Tony Curtis.

0:31:060:31:09

Would've scored 53.

0:31:100:31:12

What do you reckon Tony Blair scored?

0:31:120:31:14

Erm... Well, that you're asking means it's remarkable.

0:31:140:31:17

So it must either be remarkably high or is disappointingly low.

0:31:170:31:20

I'm going to say 98.

0:31:200:31:22

-96 points.

-96.

-96 points.

-That's pretty good.

0:31:220:31:25

That's very high, isn't it?

0:31:250:31:27

That's higher than Gordon Brown would get.

0:31:270:31:29

-Certainly. Certainly.

-Yeah.

-LAUGHTER

0:31:290:31:31

Thank you very much indeed, Richard. OK, here comes your second question.

0:31:310:31:35

Tom and Amelia, you get to answer it first, but you have to win it

0:31:350:31:37

to stay in the game, so best of luck. It concerns...

0:31:370:31:39

German Cities. Richard.

0:31:430:31:45

We are going to show you the name of five German cities now

0:31:450:31:47

but with alternate letters missing.

0:31:470:31:49

Can you tell us the most obscure?

0:31:490:31:51

OK. Let's reveal our five German cities, and here they are.

0:31:510:31:55

We've got...

0:31:550:31:56

I'll read those all one last time.

0:32:050:32:07

Tom and Amelia, you will go first.

0:32:150:32:18

So, we know the top four, we think,

0:32:180:32:20

but we think that the fifth one's going to be the lowest scorer,

0:32:200:32:24

which is probably why we don't know it.

0:32:240:32:26

-We'll go for the fourth one.

-Yeah, we'll go for the fourth one,

0:32:260:32:28

which I'm going to let you say just in case I say it wrong.

0:32:280:32:31

-It's Dusseldorf, I hope.

-Dusseldorf, say Tom and Amelia.

0:32:310:32:34

Now, Sam and David, talk us through that board.

0:32:340:32:37

We know all of them, don't we?

0:32:370:32:39

-Well, we do now they've said that.

-Yeah, yeah!

0:32:390:32:41

We thought that was Dresden, so we know all of them now.

0:32:410:32:43

-It definitely isn't Dresden.

-No.

0:32:430:32:46

So, top one, we think Cologne, Stuttgart,

0:32:460:32:49

-Munich and...Berlin

-The last one, yeah, Berlin.

0:32:490:32:53

-We're going to go for Stuttgart.

-Stuttgart.

0:32:530:32:55

So, we have Dusseldorf and we have Stuttgart.

0:32:550:32:58

Tom and Amelia said Dusseldorf. Let's see if that's right,

0:32:580:33:00

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

0:33:000:33:02

-Ooh!

-69 for Dusseldorf.

0:33:070:33:09

APPLAUSE

0:33:090:33:12

Sam and David, meanwhile, have gone for Stuttgart.

0:33:120:33:14

Let's see if that's right, let's see how many people said that.

0:33:140:33:17

It's right.

0:33:190:33:21

And it wins you the point.

0:33:210:33:23

Look at that. There we are. 56 for Stuttgart.

0:33:230:33:25

APPLAUSE Very well done indeed.

0:33:250:33:28

That means, Sam and David, after only two questions,

0:33:280:33:30

you are through to the final 2-0.

0:33:300:33:32

And even more impressive, that's the best answer on the board as well.

0:33:320:33:35

On both boards, you got the best possible answer,

0:33:350:33:37

so very, very well played.

0:33:370:33:39

Again, it's one of those situations

0:33:390:33:40

where if your kids are into football,

0:33:400:33:42

they learn an awful lot about geography

0:33:420:33:44

cos you get to know your cities so well.

0:33:440:33:45

Stuttgart. Cologne, of course, another football city.

0:33:450:33:48

And Cologne would've scored...

0:33:480:33:50

..78. Munich...

0:33:520:33:53

..would've scored 91. Biggest scorer up there.

0:33:550:33:57

And Berlin...

0:33:570:33:59

..as you'll see, it scores 74.

0:34:000:34:02

So it scores fewer

0:34:020:34:03

than Munich or Cologne.

0:34:030:34:05

There's something about the letters that it doesn't quite catch as easy.

0:34:050:34:09

-Doesn't leap out, does it?

-Yeah.

0:34:090:34:11

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:34:110:34:13

So, at the end of our head-to-head round,

0:34:130:34:15

I'm sorry to say, Tom and Amelia, we're saying goodbye to you.

0:34:150:34:18

It's sort of good news, though, cos we get see you again next time.

0:34:180:34:21

-Because otherwise it would all have been over in one show.

-Yeah.

0:34:210:34:23

Lovely having you on. We'll see you again then.

0:34:230:34:25

Tom and Amelia. Thanks very much indeed.

0:34:250:34:27

APPLAUSE

0:34:270:34:30

But for Sam And David, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:300:34:34

Very, very well done, Sam and David.

0:34:380:34:40

You've seen off all the competition,

0:34:400:34:42

-you have now won our coveted Pointless trophy.

-Yes.

0:34:420:34:45

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot,

0:34:510:34:53

and at the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £7,000.

0:34:530:34:58

Now...

0:34:580:34:59

..someone is going to have to win that sooner or later,

0:35:010:35:04

and if not you, who?

0:35:040:35:06

You've been our low-scorers in Round One,

0:35:060:35:08

our low-scorers in Round Two,

0:35:080:35:09

head-to-head, you saw off with no difficulty at all, 2-0.

0:35:090:35:12

You've come storming through to the final.

0:35:120:35:14

Momentum is behind you here, shall we say.

0:35:140:35:17

What would you like to see come up?

0:35:170:35:18

I would love David Bowie to come up because that's his department

0:35:180:35:22

-and that keeps me off the hook, then I can...

-Oh, I see.

0:35:220:35:25

-..shift the pressure a bit.

-Anything that keeps you off the hook, David?

0:35:250:35:28

Well, yeah, I think the David Bowie thing, for me,

0:35:280:35:31

is good cos I can answer all those questions.

0:35:310:35:33

But anything wrestling comes up, I'm just going to stand

0:35:330:35:35

somewhere over there and let Sam get on with it.

0:35:350:35:38

OK. Let's hope there's something up there that...vaguely suits you.

0:35:380:35:42

Best of luck. Here they come.

0:35:420:35:43

-Erm, we...

-It's got to be American Films, really, hasn't it?

0:35:530:35:56

Yeah. Richard Nixon, definitely not.

0:35:560:35:58

Olympic Throwing Events, I mean, just look at me.

0:35:580:36:00

I've got no sports expertise whatsoever.

0:36:000:36:03

Romantic Fiction, definitely not.

0:36:030:36:04

So American Films, it's going to have to be the one.

0:36:040:36:07

Well, best of luck. American Films.

0:36:070:36:08

We are looking for anybody credited in any of the following three films.

0:36:080:36:12

Anyone who acted in the following three films according to IMDb.

0:36:120:36:15

Anyone from 1999's American Beauty.

0:36:150:36:18

Anyone from American Psycho in the year 2000.

0:36:180:36:21

Or anyone from American Graffiti from 1973, please.

0:36:210:36:25

So anyone who received an acting credit

0:36:250:36:27

in any of those three films according to IMDb.

0:36:270:36:30

-Very, very best of luck, gents.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:36:300:36:33

As always, you've got up to a minute to come up with three answers,

0:36:330:36:36

and all you need to win that jackpot

0:36:360:36:37

is for just one of those answers to be pointless.

0:36:370:36:40

-Are you ready? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:36:400:36:41

Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:36:410:36:43

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:36:430:36:45

OK. Harrison Ford was in American Graffiti.

0:36:450:36:47

Was he? I've no idea. I've not seen any of them.

0:36:470:36:49

-American Beauty, nothing at all?

-No.

-OK.

-The Mena Suvari one?

0:36:490:36:52

-That's the one with Kevin Spacey.

-Kevin Spacey, Mena Suvari...

-Yeah.

0:36:520:36:57

I've got no idea about...

0:36:570:36:59

So Harrison Ford for American Graffiti.

0:36:590:37:02

-Ron Howard was in that one.

-Ron Howard was in it?

-I believe so.

0:37:020:37:07

-American Psycho's Christian Bale, isn't it?

-Yeah. Who else is in it?

0:37:070:37:10

I've no idea.

0:37:100:37:11

-Apart from Christian Bale!

-BOTH CHUCKLE

0:37:110:37:13

That's going to be the main person in it.

0:37:130:37:15

-I think Harrison Ford.

-Yeah.

-I'm not sure about Ron Howard

0:37:150:37:17

because I think he's going to score points in there.

0:37:170:37:20

We'll go for both of them cos we haven't got anything else.

0:37:200:37:22

And you say... What was the other one in American Beauty?

0:37:220:37:25

Mena Suvari, is it?

0:37:250:37:26

I think that's her name, how you pronounce it.

0:37:260:37:29

-Kevin Bacon.

-Kevin Spacey.

-Spacey, that's it.

-Spacey.

0:37:290:37:32

-Bacon's in everything, though.

-DAVID CHUCKLES

0:37:320:37:34

-Ten seconds left.

-American Psycho...

0:37:340:37:37

-No. I think we're just going to have to go for those three...

-OK.

0:37:380:37:41

-..and take the trophy.

-OK, yeah.

0:37:410:37:43

OK. You're happy to let the minute run out. There it is.

0:37:430:37:46

Let's have your three answers,

0:37:460:37:47

-and say which category you're answering in.

-Sure.

0:37:470:37:49

-So, from American Beauty, who do you have?

-Mena Suvari.

0:37:490:37:52

Mena Suvari.

0:37:520:37:54

-And then, from American Graffiti, Harrison Ford...

-Harrison Ford.

0:37:540:37:57

-..and Ron Howard.

-And Ron Howard.

0:37:570:38:00

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

0:38:000:38:03

-Argh!

-I'd say...Mena Suvari.

-Mena Suvari, we will put last.

0:38:050:38:09

-Least likely to be pointless?

-Ron Howard, I think.

0:38:090:38:11

Ron Howard, we put first.

0:38:110:38:13

OK. Well, let's put those answers up on the board in that order, then.

0:38:130:38:16

And here they are. We've got...

0:38:160:38:18

Well, best of luck. Nice big jackpot there.

0:38:210:38:24

Let's just imagine one of these answers might be pointless.

0:38:240:38:27

What would you do with that jackpot? Sam, to you first.

0:38:270:38:31

Well, I owe David some money, so I'd pay him that.

0:38:310:38:33

LAUGHTER

0:38:330:38:35

I made a New Year's resolution a couple of years ago

0:38:350:38:37

to visit a new country every year, so book somewhere.

0:38:370:38:42

Probably one of the pointless countries such as...

0:38:420:38:44

-Where have you been so far?

-I mean, this is only a couple of years ago.

0:38:440:38:47

I'm not very well travelled. So Holland and Croatia and Russia.

0:38:470:38:51

Very good.

0:38:510:38:52

Now, David, what about you?

0:38:520:38:54

I'd probably lend it to Sam.

0:38:540:38:55

LAUGHTER That seems to be the pattern.

0:38:550:38:59

OK. Well, best of luck.

0:38:590:39:00

In the first instance, you've gone for Ron Howard.

0:39:000:39:02

We were looking for cast members of American Graffiti.

0:39:020:39:05

This was probably the one you thought was least likely

0:39:050:39:07

to be pointless, but let's find out.

0:39:070:39:09

If it is pointless, it'll win you £7,000.

0:39:090:39:11

Let's see how many people said Ron Howard.

0:39:110:39:13

It's right.

0:39:160:39:17

Now then, if this goes all the way down to 0,

0:39:180:39:20

you will leave with a cheque for £7,000.

0:39:200:39:23

Simple as that. Down it goes.

0:39:230:39:24

Ron Howard into single figures.

0:39:240:39:26

Still going down, still going down.

0:39:260:39:27

4. This is very good.

0:39:270:39:29

APPLAUSE

0:39:290:39:31

4 for your first answer.

0:39:310:39:33

That's a cracking score by any measure.

0:39:340:39:37

-Sadly, it's not a pointless score.

-No.

0:39:370:39:39

And for this last round, it has to be pointless.

0:39:390:39:41

Your next answer was Harrison Ford,

0:39:410:39:43

and again, we were looking cast members of American Graffiti.

0:39:430:39:46

If it's pointless, it'll win you £7,000.

0:39:460:39:48

How many of our 100 people said Harrison Ford?

0:39:480:39:50

Well, it's right.

0:39:530:39:55

Ron Howard took us all the way down to 4.

0:39:550:39:59

Harrison Ford now takes us down through the 20s

0:39:590:40:01

and into the teens.

0:40:010:40:03

Into single figures. Down it goes.

0:40:030:40:04

6 for Harrison Ford.

0:40:040:40:06

APPLAUSE

0:40:060:40:08

Also not a bad score.

0:40:080:40:10

OK. Everything is now riding on your third and final answer,

0:40:120:40:14

which is Mena Suvari.

0:40:140:40:16

In this case, we were looking for cast members of American Beauty.

0:40:160:40:19

If this is pointless, it will win you £7,000.

0:40:190:40:22

How many of our 100 people said Mena Suvari? Is it pointless?

0:40:220:40:27

It's right.

0:40:300:40:32

Ron Howard took us down to 4.

0:40:320:40:33

Harrison Ford, your second answer,

0:40:350:40:36

took us down to 6.

0:40:360:40:38

Mena Suvari taking us down into single figures.

0:40:380:40:40

Down it goes. Passes 6. Passes 4.

0:40:400:40:42

-Oh, 2.

-Aw!

0:40:420:40:43

APPLAUSE

0:40:430:40:48

Wow.

0:40:480:40:49

Three very, very good answers.

0:40:500:40:53

But I'm sorry to say, you didn't manage to find

0:40:530:40:55

that all-important pointless answer.

0:40:550:40:56

So I'm afraid you don't win today's jackpot of £7,000.

0:40:560:40:59

That will roll over onto the next show. But what a performance.

0:40:590:41:02

Absolutely brilliant having you here today,

0:41:020:41:04

and you've been so consistently good.

0:41:040:41:06

Great answers right the way through the show,

0:41:060:41:08

so very well done indeed.

0:41:080:41:09

-And you get a Pointless trophy to take home, so very well done.

-Yeah.

0:41:090:41:12

Thank you.

0:41:120:41:13

That's unlucky, guys. You know what? You covered yourself in glory

0:41:170:41:20

throughout the show, and it's a shame not to have them back.

0:41:200:41:23

We'll go through the pointless answers

0:41:230:41:25

including my favourite named actor of all time

0:41:250:41:27

in the American Psycho category.

0:41:270:41:28

But we'll start with American Beauty.

0:41:280:41:30

Allison Janney. Better known as CJ in The West Wing.

0:41:310:41:34

She played the neighbour. Peter Gallagher, Scott Bakula.

0:41:340:41:37

Also known for Quantum Leap. Plays Sam Beckett in Quantum Leap.

0:41:370:41:40

Wes Bentley at the bottom there. They were all pointless answers.

0:41:400:41:43

Everyone enough film was pointless other than Kevin Spacey,

0:41:430:41:45

Annette Bening, Thora Birch, Mena Suvari and Chris Cooper.

0:41:450:41:49

Everyone else is a pointless answer.

0:41:490:41:50

Let's move on to American Psycho.

0:41:500:41:52

So, Guinevere Turner, who also co-wrote the screenplay,

0:41:540:41:56

and Josh Lucas.

0:41:560:41:58

And then Park Bench.

0:41:580:41:59

-LAUGHTER

-Brilliant.

-Just brilliant.

0:41:590:42:02

Who plays Stash in the film, Park Bench.

0:42:040:42:07

What were Mr and Mrs Bench thinking?

0:42:070:42:08

-LAUGHTER

-Goodness me.

0:42:080:42:11

And Samantha Mathis, also a pointless answer.

0:42:110:42:14

Everyone apart from Christian Bale, Reese Witherspoon,

0:42:140:42:17

Justin Theroux, Jared Leto, Willem Dafoe and Chloe Sevigny.

0:42:170:42:20

They were the ones that scored points.

0:42:200:42:22

Everyone else was a pointless answer. American Graffiti now.

0:42:220:42:25

Charles Martin Smith, Cindy Williams, Kathleen Quinlan,

0:42:260:42:29

Wolfman Jack played the DJ.

0:42:290:42:31

And only three answers in that film scored any points at all,

0:42:310:42:34

and they were Harrison Ford, Ron Howard and Richard Dreyfuss.

0:42:340:42:39

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:42:390:42:40

Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to you, Sam and David,

0:42:400:42:42

but it's been fabulous having you on the show.

0:42:420:42:44

Thank you for playing. Sam and David, great contestants.

0:42:440:42:47

Unlucky there.

0:42:470:42:48

Well, sadly, Sam and David didn't win our jackpot today, which means

0:42:500:42:53

it rolls over onto the next show when we will be playing for £8,000.

0:42:530:42:56

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:42:560:42:58

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:42:580:43:00

And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:000:43:02
