Thank you very much indeed. Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong.

0:00:220:00:25

Welcome to Pointless, the show that puts obscure knowledge to the test.

0:00:250:00:28

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:30

And couple number one.

0:00:330:00:35

Hi, I'm Mark. This is my friend Laura and we are both from Glasgow.

0:00:350:00:38

-Couple number two.

-Hi, I'm Adam. This is my friend and colleague Hal

0:00:380:00:40

-and we are from High Wycombe.

-Couple number three.

0:00:400:00:43

Hi, I'm Izzi and this is my dad, David and we're from Bath.

0:00:430:00:46

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:460:00:47

Hi, I'm Jonny and this is my wife, Hannah

0:00:470:00:49

-and we're from Hebden Bridge.

-And these are today's contestants.

0:00:490:00:52

Thanks very much all of you. A very warm welcome.

0:00:540:00:56

We'll get to find out more about each of you

0:00:560:00:58

throughout the show as it goes along.

0:00:580:01:00

So that just leaves one more person for me to introduce.

0:01:000:01:02

Still failing to grasp it can't be called fan fiction

0:01:020:01:05

if you've written it about yourself.

0:01:050:01:07

It's my Pointless friend, it's Richard.

0:01:070:01:10

Hiya. Hi, everybody.

0:01:100:01:12

-Good afternoon to you.

-And to you.

0:01:130:01:15

Now, three very exciting things about today's show, I would say.

0:01:150:01:18

Firstly, we've given away the jackpot in eight

0:01:180:01:21

out of the last nine shows, which is quite something.

0:01:210:01:24

Eight out of nine shows.

0:01:240:01:25

Secondly, a first-time in Pointless history - in Pointless history -

0:01:250:01:28

when we've had two contestants whose names are palindromes.

0:01:280:01:32

-HE GASPS

-We are... I know.

0:01:320:01:35

-Izzi.

-Yeah, Izzi and Hannah.

0:01:350:01:37

-Look at that.

-Can you believe it? Never happened before.

0:01:370:01:40

Never happened before in this entire history...

0:01:400:01:42

-That's the best thing ever.

-900-and-something shows,

0:01:420:01:46

we have never gone 25% palindrome.

0:01:460:01:49

-Never happened.

-Look at that!

-Can you believe it?

-Wow!

0:01:490:01:51

And thirdly, I'm very excited cos Laura and Mark are back and

0:01:510:01:54

Mark has our favourite job of anyone who has ever been on the show.

0:01:540:01:57

-Bespoke pumps.

-He works with pumps, this guy.

0:01:570:01:59

He'll do cheap pumps, he'll do high-end, expensive pumps...

0:01:590:02:03

If pumps are what you want, Mark is your man.

0:02:030:02:05

-Mark, it's a pleasure.

-That's wonderful, wonderful news.

0:02:050:02:08

Well, Leslie and Gary won the jackpot last time,

0:02:080:02:11

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

0:02:110:02:14

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

0:02:140:02:17

OK, all you have to remember is this -

0:02:220:02:24

the pair with the highest score at the end of each round

0:02:240:02:26

will be eliminated. That is it.

0:02:260:02:28

Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:280:02:29

Our first category this afternoon...

0:02:290:02:33

It's Famous People.

0:02:340:02:35

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

0:02:350:02:38

who's going to go second?

0:02:380:02:39

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

0:02:390:02:42

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:450:02:47

Influential British women. Richard.

0:02:510:02:53

Yeah, we're about to show you 15 pictures now of women all

0:02:530:02:55

of whom featured on the Independent's list of women

0:02:550:02:58

who changed the world for the better.

0:02:580:02:59

Can you identify the most obscure of these?

0:02:590:03:02

-Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much.

0:03:020:03:03

As Richard just said, we are going to show you an image

0:03:030:03:05

with 15 influential British women on.

0:03:050:03:08

Can you identify one of those?

0:03:080:03:09

That will not change halfway through the round.

0:03:090:03:12

The picture will stay up for the whole round. Very best of luck.

0:03:120:03:14

Let's have a look at that image. Here they are.

0:03:140:03:17

There we go. 15 influential women.

0:03:200:03:23

Laura, welcome back to Pointless.

0:03:230:03:26

Great to have you here. Remind us what you do, Laura.

0:03:260:03:29

I'm a contract manager for a company that makes buses.

0:03:290:03:31

Making buses.

0:03:310:03:33

Fantastic. And when you are not on the buses,

0:03:330:03:36

what do you like to do?

0:03:360:03:38

Play a bit of badminton and biggest hobby is softball,

0:03:380:03:42

-which takes up a lot of time.

-Would you play with Mark?

0:03:420:03:44

I do, some of the times, yes.

0:03:440:03:47

-I'm his captain.

-Are you?

-Yeah.

0:03:470:03:49

So, you are in charge of selecting him or not.

0:03:490:03:51

-If he's not on the list...

-That's happened.

0:03:510:03:54

-..Mark, you know why.

-Yeah.

0:03:540:03:55

I tell him it's cos I need him coaching on the sideline.

0:03:550:03:57

Good line, Laura.

0:03:570:03:59

Now, look at these influential British women.

0:03:590:04:02

Who would you like to go for?

0:04:020:04:03

You don't have to say which the picture is,

0:04:030:04:05

you can just say the name.

0:04:050:04:07

I'm going to go for Anita Brodick, please.

0:04:070:04:10

Anita Brodick. Anita Brodick, says Laura.

0:04:100:04:13

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

0:04:130:04:16

I'm really sorry, Laura. I'm so sorry.

0:04:190:04:20

I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer.

0:04:200:04:22

Scores you 100 points.

0:04:220:04:24

Yeah, sorry, Laura. I'll give all the correct answers

0:04:240:04:26

-at the end of the round.

-OK, Hal, welcome to Pointless.

0:04:260:04:29

Good to have you here. From High Wycombe.

0:04:290:04:31

-What do you do, Hal?

-I'm a radio presenter.

-What's your station?

0:04:310:04:34

-It's BFBS, which is British Forces.

-I knew... Exactly!

0:04:340:04:37

British Forces Broad... You broadcast all over the world.

0:04:370:04:40

-That's right.

-You are the lifeline for our forces serving abroad.

0:04:400:04:43

Well, not just me. I'll take it.

0:04:430:04:45

What show are you on?

0:04:450:04:47

I do DRIVE-time, four to seven.

0:04:470:04:49

-DRIVE-time!

-And that's in tanks as well.

0:04:490:04:52

-So...

-Any combat vehicle.

0:04:520:04:54

Any... HE LAUGHS

0:04:540:04:56

The four till seven slot, so what do you feature on your show?

0:04:560:04:59

Oh, just lots of good music.

0:04:590:05:01

I mean, are you allowed to choose your playlist or do...?

0:05:010:05:03

I want to say yes, but I'm going to say the truth - no.

0:05:030:05:07

What sort of music? Or it's all chart music, really?

0:05:070:05:10

It's actually a very broad range,

0:05:100:05:12

-going as far back as the '60s.

-Oh, good.

0:05:120:05:14

IN RADIO VOICE: Broad range. That is the sound of DRIVE-time.

0:05:140:05:17

-Did you get a bit of my radio voice there?

-I did there.

0:05:170:05:20

But of course, it's drive-time for you,

0:05:200:05:22

if they are listening to it on the other side

0:05:220:05:24

of the world, of course, drive-time might be sort of two in the morning.

0:05:240:05:27

That's a very good point.

0:05:270:05:28

-Yeah, it's a good point.

-Yeah, I don't know how to respond to that.

0:05:280:05:31

Now, Hal, who would you like to go for on this board?

0:05:310:05:34

Right, I want to do a safe answer.

0:05:340:05:37

-(No!)

-But I think I might have a better one.

-(Yes!)

0:05:370:05:41

-But I'm probably going to go with the safe one.

-(No!)

0:05:420:05:45

Princess Diana.

0:05:470:05:49

OK, well, our high score, at the moment, is 100.

0:05:490:05:51

I wonder if you can beat that with...

0:05:510:05:55

Diana, Princess of Wales. Let's see if that's right.

0:05:550:05:57

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

0:05:570:06:00

Oh, yeah, there we go. 96, Hal. Well done.

0:06:020:06:05

That's a relief for Laura there on podium one.

0:06:050:06:09

Phew!

0:06:090:06:10

Not quite such a drop there. Yeah, 96.

0:06:100:06:13

Yeah, there's safe and there's safe, Hal. That really is.

0:06:130:06:16

And for viewers at home,

0:06:160:06:18

she is top row, second from the left.

0:06:180:06:21

There she is.

0:06:220:06:24

There we go.

0:06:240:06:25

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:06:250:06:27

Izzi, welcome to the show.

0:06:270:06:30

-Lovely to have you here from Bath.

-Yes.

-What do you do, Izzi?

0:06:300:06:33

I'm a student at Leeds Uni, so I've just finished my second year there.

0:06:330:06:37

-And what are you studying?

-I'm studying economics and geography.

0:06:370:06:40

-And how is it going?

-Yeah, it's going quite well.

0:06:400:06:42

-I'm really pleased with my grades so far this year.

-That's...

0:06:420:06:45

Oh, if she didn't have her dad here, she'd have such a different answer.

0:06:450:06:48

-Going, "Yeah, it's been brilliant!"

-That might be true.

0:06:480:06:51

"I haven't done much of the work, but..."

0:06:510:06:52

What are your interests, Izzi?

0:06:520:06:54

I'm really into music. Leeds has got a really good music scene.

0:06:540:06:59

I enjoy keeping fit and when I'm at home,

0:06:590:07:01

-I do quite a lot of running and stuff. So, yeah.

-Very good indeed.

0:07:010:07:04

Now, how do you like our influential British women?

0:07:040:07:07

Well, I knew two and one of them's gone already.

0:07:070:07:10

So, I'm going to have to go with Julie Andrews.

0:07:100:07:15

Julie Andrews, says Izzi.

0:07:150:07:17

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

0:07:170:07:20

It's right. Well...

0:07:230:07:25

Instantly our lowest score

0:07:250:07:27

by quite a mile.

0:07:270:07:29

Look at that. 26 for Julie Andrews.

0:07:290:07:30

Very well done indeed, Izzi.

0:07:300:07:32

Right in the middle, Julie Andrews. Very good answer.

0:07:340:07:36

She said it was a nightmare filming the opening scene

0:07:360:07:38

in Sound Of Music where she's singing on the hillside.

0:07:380:07:41

Because it was being filmed from a helicopter

0:07:410:07:43

and the back draft kept knocking her over

0:07:430:07:45

all the way through.

0:07:450:07:47

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

0:07:470:07:49

-Now, Hannah.

-Yes.

0:07:490:07:51

Welcome to the show. Great to have you here from Hebden Bridge.

0:07:510:07:54

-Yeah.

-And what do you do, Hannah?

0:07:540:07:56

I'm a marketing manager at a anti-poverty charity in Halifax.

0:07:560:07:59

Good for you, good for you.

0:07:590:08:01

What are your interests when you are not there?

0:08:010:08:03

I'm interested in music, go to festivals and watch bands

0:08:030:08:07

and things like that.

0:08:070:08:08

-How many festivals have you been to so far this year?

-Oh, this year.

0:08:080:08:11

Well, I have a three-year-old son,

0:08:110:08:12

so I've had to just take a bit of a sabbatical from festivals.

0:08:120:08:16

Have you taken your son to a festival yet?

0:08:160:08:19

-When he was in utero, yes.

-Oh, I see.

0:08:190:08:22

Now, Hannah, what are you going to go for on our board?

0:08:220:08:25

Well, I'm going to go for Anita Roddick.

0:08:250:08:28

Oh, Laura, do you see? LAURA CHUCKLES

0:08:280:08:31

Do you see? I'm sorry.

0:08:310:08:33

-I didn't... I was going to say that from the start.

-No, no.

0:08:350:08:38

That's good, that's good. Recycling.

0:08:380:08:40

It's something we should all be doing.

0:08:400:08:42

Anita Roddick, says Hannah. Let's see if that's right.

0:08:420:08:44

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

0:08:440:08:47

It's right.

0:08:500:08:51

Well, 26 is our only score from this end...

0:08:510:08:53

And you've passed it. Look at that.

0:08:530:08:55

Anita Roddick goes down to 10. Very well done indeed.

0:08:550:08:58

Great score from Hannah there.

0:09:000:09:02

Ruthless, Hannah. Absolutely ruthless.

0:09:020:09:05

Yeah, the founder of The Body Shop in 1976, Anita Roddick.

0:09:050:09:07

There we are. Thanks very much. We're halfway through the round,

0:09:070:09:10

so let's take a look at those scores.

0:09:100:09:12

10, the best score of that pass. Very well done indeed.

0:09:120:09:14

Hannah and Jonny looking quite strong on the back of that.

0:09:140:09:17

As indeed are Izzi and David on 26. Then we travel right up

0:09:170:09:20

to the other end of the scoreboard.

0:09:200:09:22

We find Hal and Adam on 96.

0:09:220:09:25

Then up to 100, there we find Laura and Mark.

0:09:250:09:27

It's very close there at the top.

0:09:270:09:29

Going to be between Mark and Adam, I'd imagine, to decide who stays

0:09:290:09:32

with us and who leaves at the end of the round. Best of luck with that.

0:09:320:09:35

Going to come back down the line.

0:09:350:09:37

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:09:370:09:39

Jonny, a very warm welcome to Pointless.

0:09:410:09:44

Just forgive me, for one moment.

0:09:440:09:46

-The beard quota has gone up again, hasn't it?

-I know. It really has.

0:09:460:09:48

-We've got three beards.

-Three!

0:09:480:09:50

A year ago, we'd never see a beard in the place

0:09:500:09:53

unless it was on over 60.

0:09:530:09:55

Three beards.

0:09:550:09:57

-It's extraordinary.

-That's the thing.

0:09:570:09:59

Jonny, what do you do?

0:09:590:10:00

-I'm a hairdresser.

-Are you now?

0:10:000:10:02

-I am indeed.

-Up in Hebden Bridge?

0:10:020:10:05

No, in Manchester.

0:10:050:10:06

And do you have a rather grand client list?

0:10:060:10:10

I'd like to say I'm pretty busy. Yeah...

0:10:100:10:12

I don't want to brag about anything, but, yeah.

0:10:120:10:15

OK. That's good.

0:10:150:10:17

And when you are not dressing hair, what do you like to get up to?

0:10:170:10:21

Same thing as Hannah, really. Listen to music, just play with our son...

0:10:210:10:24

I've got a long board that I go out on it every now and again.

0:10:240:10:27

Only with a long board...

0:10:270:10:29

-But, yes, stuff like that, really.

-Excellent.

0:10:290:10:31

Now, Jonny, you are the low-scorers at this point.

0:10:310:10:33

If you can score 89 or less, you will remain low-scorers.

0:10:330:10:37

-Who do you like to go for on this board?

-I'm going to...

0:10:370:10:41

I'm pretty sure this is right.

0:10:410:10:43

I'm going to go with Ellen MacArthur.

0:10:430:10:45

-Ellen MacArthur, says Jonny.

-Yeah.

-Here is your red line.

0:10:450:10:48

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

0:10:480:10:51

How many of our 100 people spotted Ellen MacArthur?

0:10:510:10:54

It's absolutely right, of course,

0:10:550:10:58

and obviously gets you through.

0:10:580:11:01

It's another low score.

0:11:010:11:02

Look at that! 6.

0:11:020:11:04

Very, very strong work on that far podium there,

0:11:040:11:07

Jonny and Hannah. Well done. 16 is your total.

0:11:070:11:09

Another very good answer. Another dame as well on podium four.

0:11:090:11:12

There she is on the bottom right-hand corner.

0:11:120:11:15

Dame Ellen MacArthur.

0:11:150:11:16

There we are. Thank you give very much.

0:11:160:11:18

-David, a warm welcome to Pointless.

-Thank you.

0:11:180:11:21

-What do you do, David?

-I'm a commercial chartered surveyor.

0:11:210:11:24

I see. And what are your interests?

0:11:240:11:27

-I'm a very keen rugby fan with the local team, Bath.

-Of course.

0:11:270:11:32

And I'm originally from Cardiff,

0:11:320:11:34

so I'm a big Welsh rugby fan as well.

0:11:340:11:35

I see, so you've got rugby from all sides there.

0:11:350:11:38

Rugby from all sides, yes, yes.

0:11:380:11:39

And how is it been having Izzi away at Leeds?

0:11:390:11:43

Well, quieter at home.

0:11:430:11:44

Yes, particularly late at night when she comes in from partying, yes.

0:11:440:11:49

Now, David, you are on 26.

0:11:490:11:51

The high-scorers are Mark and Laura on 100.

0:11:510:11:54

So 73 or less, you should be fine.

0:11:540:11:56

I think I know a couple.

0:11:570:11:59

But I'm going to go for Mary Peters.

0:11:590:12:02

Mary Peters. There is your red line.

0:12:030:12:06

If you get below that with Mary Peters,

0:12:060:12:08

you are through to the next round.

0:12:080:12:10

How many of our 100 said Mary Peters?

0:12:100:12:12

Absolutely right. Very well done.

0:12:150:12:17

That is a wonderful answer.

0:12:200:12:22

Very good. Mary Peters takes your total up to 33.

0:12:220:12:27

Well played, David. Yeah, Dame Mary Peters.

0:12:270:12:29

She was awarded the freedom of the City of Belfast in 2013.

0:12:290:12:32

And she herded sheep through Belfast city centre,

0:12:320:12:34

even though it doesn't actually allow you to do it.

0:12:340:12:37

-Oh, that's nice.

-Yeah, exactly.

-She just thought, "I..."

0:12:370:12:39

It sounds like the sort of thing you're supposed to be allowed to do.

0:12:390:12:42

-Yeah, absolutely. Herd sheep across bridges and things.

-Yeah.

0:12:420:12:45

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:12:450:12:47

Adam, welcome to Pointless. Great to have you here. What do you do?

0:12:470:12:51

I'm a transmission operator for BFBS Television.

0:12:510:12:53

-So, the television side of it.

-Representing the TV.

0:12:530:12:56

I didn't realise there was a TV side to it.

0:12:560:12:58

Does Pointless go out on BFBS?

0:12:580:13:00

BFBS viewers will be watching Pointless right now.

0:13:000:13:02

-Hey!

-That is good.

0:13:020:13:04

OK, Adam, when you are not doing the broadcasting thing,

0:13:040:13:07

what thrills you?

0:13:070:13:09

I am very much an armchair sportsman,

0:13:090:13:11

so many sports as long as I don't have to leave my sofa.

0:13:110:13:14

I do a bit of fencing as well.

0:13:140:13:16

OK. From the sofa or...?

0:13:160:13:18

I drag myself out of my pit for that one.

0:13:180:13:21

Very good. OK, now, look, this is important.

0:13:210:13:23

-Hal has... I don't know what he was doing there.

-No.

0:13:230:13:26

I don't know what he was doing. He set the bar very high for you.

0:13:260:13:30

-The term "up the creek" is springing into my mind.

-Mm, mm.

0:13:300:13:33

-Well, listen, if you can score 3 or less, it's fine.

-Easy.

0:13:330:13:37

Yeah, let's see what you can do, Adam. It has to be a low score.

0:13:370:13:40

You'll have to go out on a bit of a limb.

0:13:400:13:42

There are faces there I recognise...

0:13:420:13:45

It's just which one would score best.

0:13:450:13:48

-Dames seem to be doing quite well.

-Don't they, don't they just?

0:13:480:13:50

So, I think lurking in the bottom left there is day Dame Kelly Holmes.

0:13:500:13:54

Kelly Holmes, says Adam. Kelly Holmes.

0:13:540:13:56

Here comes your red line.

0:13:560:13:57

It is low. Let's see how close

0:13:570:14:00

to that red line you can get with Dame Kelly Holmes.

0:14:000:14:02

It's right.

0:14:040:14:05

17 is not a bad score.

0:14:100:14:13

17 takes your total

0:14:130:14:15

up to 113.

0:14:150:14:16

Yeah, and of course, she was a sergeant in the British Army

0:14:160:14:19

as well, Kelly Holmes. A very apt choice.

0:14:190:14:21

So, there we are. Yes, thank you, Richard.

0:14:210:14:24

Mark, welcome back. Welcome back.

0:14:240:14:27

Just for the fun of hearing you say it, tell us what you do.

0:14:270:14:30

I am a planning manager

0:14:300:14:31

for a bespoke pumping solutions manufacturer.

0:14:310:14:34

-Oh, you've added "solutions" since last time.

-Yeah.

0:14:340:14:37

We can call 'em a pumping manufacturer, if you like.

0:14:370:14:39

I think pumping solutions is good.

0:14:390:14:41

I mean, any big solutions for pumps you're working on at the moment?

0:14:410:14:44

-Any...?

-We've... I can't talk about the customers, unfortunately.

0:14:440:14:48

What a shame. Can you talk about the pumps themselves?

0:14:480:14:51

Some of the more interesting pumps

0:14:510:14:52

we put into nuclear power stations and things like that.

0:14:520:14:55

So it's actually quite high-grade and very interesting.

0:14:550:14:57

High-grade... What's the biggest pump you've installed?

0:14:570:15:00

There is a type of pump called a concrete volute and it can be...

0:15:000:15:04

It could be probably as big as the centre of the stage in here

0:15:040:15:07

and probably as high.

0:15:070:15:09

-Wow.

-Yeah, I've had one of those. Have you?

0:15:090:15:11

LAUGHTER

0:15:110:15:13

You're not kidding there.

0:15:130:15:15

Now, Mark, you aren't the high-scorers.

0:15:150:15:18

You were for a little while, but no longer. So enjoy that.

0:15:180:15:22

12 or less is what we need from you. 12.

0:15:220:15:25

As we went along, I had... Kelly Holmes was my answer.

0:15:250:15:29

My ideal answer if I could remember the name of the lady

0:15:290:15:33

at the top left. Her name is Diane something,

0:15:330:15:35

but I cannot for the life of me remember her second name.

0:15:350:15:39

So, just to give an answer, I'm going to go with...

0:15:390:15:42

..Victoria Wood.

0:15:430:15:44

Victoria Wood. There is your red line. If you can get

0:15:440:15:47

below that with Victoria Wood,

0:15:470:15:48

you are through to the next round.

0:15:480:15:50

Let's see how far down the column you get with Victoria Wood.

0:15:500:15:53

No, it was

0:16:010:16:03

tantalizingly close there.

0:16:030:16:04

Look at that. 23.

0:16:040:16:05

I'm afraid, though, it takes your total up 123.

0:16:060:16:10

The answer in the top left would not have seen you through

0:16:100:16:13

cos it would have scored you too many points.

0:16:130:16:15

18 points for Diane Abbott.

0:16:150:16:18

Now, let's move along the top there.

0:16:180:16:20

The next one we haven't done, the black and white one is...

0:16:200:16:22

Virginia Woolf. She would have scored you 6 points.

0:16:220:16:25

Next to her, Helen Mirren. 53 points.

0:16:250:16:28

Now, down onto the second row next to Anita Roddick there

0:16:280:16:31

is Dusty Springfield.

0:16:310:16:33

She would've scored you 40.

0:16:330:16:35

Then at the end of the second row, there is Vivian Westwood.

0:16:350:16:38

She would have scored you 20 points.

0:16:380:16:40

And on the bottom row there, the ones we haven't had -

0:16:400:16:43

the middle three there. Twiggy, 37 points.

0:16:430:16:45

Carol Ann Duffy, the poet laureate, would have scored you 1 point.

0:16:450:16:48

And Delia Smith, who would have scored you 30.

0:16:480:16:51

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:16:510:16:53

So, at the end of our first round, I'm so sorry to say,

0:16:530:16:55

the pair we are saying goodbye to, it's our only returning pair.

0:16:550:16:58

And it's the wonderful Mark and Laura. I'm so sorry.

0:16:580:17:01

Far too soon to be sending you home, but thank you so much

0:17:010:17:03

-for coming to play.

-Thank you.

0:17:030:17:05

Mark and Laura, wonderful contestants.

0:17:050:17:07

APPLAUSE

0:17:070:17:10

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

0:17:100:17:13

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

0:17:180:17:21

Fantastic. Also, well done, you've seen off our only returning pair.

0:17:210:17:24

Also well done, Adam, you just about made it through

0:17:240:17:26

despite Princess of Wales there.

0:17:260:17:29

Yeah, best of luck to all three pairs.

0:17:290:17:31

Our category for Round Two this afternoon...

0:17:310:17:34

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

0:17:360:17:38

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

0:17:380:17:40

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

0:17:400:17:43

OK, and the question is all about...

0:17:460:17:50

Chemistry. Richard.

0:17:510:17:52

On each board, we are going to show

0:17:520:17:54

you six descriptions of terms from chemistry.

0:17:540:17:56

We just need you to give us the most obscure answer.

0:17:560:17:58

Going to give you the first and last letters of each word,

0:17:580:18:01

you'll be glad to hear. Going to be 12 in all to have a go at

0:18:010:18:03

-at home. Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:18:030:18:06

So, let's reveal our six descriptions and here they are...

0:18:060:18:09

I'm going to read those through one last time.

0:18:370:18:40

-OK, Hal.

-Yes. I mean...

0:19:050:19:08

I've got a safe answer.

0:19:080:19:10

And I've got one

0:19:100:19:12

that is not so safe.

0:19:120:19:14

I think we all know

0:19:140:19:15

-what I'm going to go for.

-Yeah.

0:19:150:19:17

Cos it worked last time. Tactical.

0:19:180:19:20

I'm going to go with atom.

0:19:200:19:22

OK, let's see how low you can score with atom. Good luck, Hal.

0:19:230:19:27

70.

0:19:330:19:34

70 for atom.

0:19:340:19:35

That's not bad.

0:19:350:19:36

Yes, you have seven billion, billion, billion atoms in your body.

0:19:380:19:42

Thank you very much indeed. Izzi.

0:19:420:19:44

-Izzi, how are we feeling about chemistry?

-Not too bad.

0:19:450:19:48

I remember, I think, some of these

0:19:480:19:50

from my GCSE chemistry days.

0:19:500:19:52

I think I know three of them.

0:19:540:19:56

I think I will play it safe

0:19:560:19:59

and go with exothermic

0:19:590:20:01

for accompanied by the release of heat.

0:20:010:20:03

Oh, I like exothermic as safe. Good, OK. Let's see if that is right.

0:20:030:20:07

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

0:20:070:20:10

See how that's a safe answer.

0:20:120:20:15

Exothermic.

0:20:150:20:16

Down it goes to 32.

0:20:160:20:17

Very well done indeed, Izzi.

0:20:180:20:20

32 for exothermic.

0:20:200:20:21

They're reactions that transfer energy

0:20:220:20:24

-to their surroundings. Exothermic reactions.

-OK, thank you.

0:20:240:20:28

-Now, Jonny, this board is all yours.

-Nice one.

0:20:280:20:31

-Jonny, talk us through it. Fill in all those chemistry blanks.

-Uh...

0:20:310:20:37

Yeah, I know two of them

0:20:370:20:39

that have already gone.

0:20:390:20:41

The only other one that I know

0:20:410:20:42

is helium and I know that's going

0:20:420:20:45

to be a really high answer, but I'm going to have to go with it.

0:20:450:20:47

OK, helium it is. Let's see how many of our 100 people said helium.

0:20:470:20:51

Well, it's right.

0:20:530:20:55

It's going down, which seems odd.

0:20:550:20:57

58. Not bad.

0:20:570:20:59

Not bad for helium.

0:20:590:21:00

Yeah, well played. The weird thing is, when I typed all these questions

0:21:020:21:05

-in, that question was at the bottom of the board.

-Yeah.

0:21:050:21:08

I don't understand it. Now, let's fill in the rest of these.

0:21:100:21:13

The carbon residue.

0:21:130:21:15

-It's coke.

-It is coke, absolutely.

0:21:150:21:16

Very fattening.

0:21:160:21:18

26 points for that.

0:21:180:21:19

A substance formed from two or more elements...

0:21:190:21:22

-Is compound.

-Yeah.

0:21:220:21:24

Would have scored you 49.

0:21:240:21:26

And of or containing water...

0:21:260:21:27

-Aqueous.

-Aqueous.

0:21:270:21:29

And that would have scored 35.

0:21:290:21:30

So, the best answer on the board is coke.

0:21:300:21:32

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

0:21:320:21:34

Let's take a look at the scores. We're halfway through the round.

0:21:340:21:37

32, Izzi.

0:21:370:21:38

Very well done indeed. Best score of the pass.

0:21:380:21:40

You and your dad looking pretty strong with that.

0:21:400:21:43

Then up to 58, where we find Jonny and Hannah.

0:21:430:21:44

That up to 70, Hal and Adam.

0:21:440:21:47

Adam, once again, you know what I'm going to say.

0:21:470:21:49

You just have to do it again.

0:21:490:21:50

-There's a theme building.

-There we are. There is slightly.

0:21:500:21:52

One more round to go before you can confer, Hal.

0:21:520:21:56

Oh, there we go. Best of luck.

0:21:560:21:57

We are going to come back down the line now.

0:21:570:21:59

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:590:22:01

OK. Let's put six more descriptions of chemistry terms up on the board,

0:22:040:22:08

and here they are.

0:22:080:22:10

I'll read those all one last time.

0:22:350:22:37

-Hannah.

-I'm a bit gutted because I knew every answer on the last board.

0:23:010:23:06

Oh, no! Jonny, don't tell me you know all of these!

0:23:060:23:08

-I don't know any of them.

-Oh, phew.

0:23:080:23:10

I'm going to go second to the bottom.

0:23:120:23:15

-And I'm going to say radioactive.

-Radioactive.

0:23:150:23:19

Radioactive, says Hannah. OK, you're on 58.

0:23:190:23:21

You want to score 11 or less to avoid becoming the high-scorers.

0:23:210:23:25

There's your red line. Let's see if

0:23:250:23:26

radioactive gets you down there.

0:23:260:23:28

It's right.

0:23:290:23:31

That's really not bad at all, Hannah, look at that. 20.

0:23:340:23:36

Very well done indeed.

0:23:360:23:37

78 is your total.

0:23:370:23:39

I think you're going to be in the head-to-head.

0:23:390:23:42

Yeah, well played, Hannah. Radioactive, very good answer.

0:23:420:23:44

-There we are, thank you very much.

-Pleasure.

-Now, David.

0:23:440:23:48

David, 45 is your target.

0:23:480:23:50

Yes, it's a little while since I did my chemistry O level.

0:23:510:23:55

I think I know a couple, but I'm not that sure.

0:23:550:23:59

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

0:24:010:24:03

the SI unit of work and energy is a joule.

0:24:030:24:06

A joule, says David. A joule.

0:24:060:24:08

Here's your red line.

0:24:080:24:09

Get below that with joule and you're into the head-to-head.

0:24:090:24:12

How many people said joule?

0:24:120:24:13

It's right.

0:24:150:24:17

62.

0:24:200:24:21

Taking your total up to 94.

0:24:210:24:23

APPLAUSE

0:24:230:24:25

And, of course, the amount of energy it takes to make a crown

0:24:250:24:28

is a crown joule.

0:24:280:24:30

There we go. Now, Adam, look, you've got a chance now.

0:24:310:24:34

You've got a chance.

0:24:340:24:35

If you can score 23 or less, Adam, this is good.

0:24:350:24:38

-You could be into the head-to-head.

-Easy as that.

0:24:380:24:41

Adam, talk us through this board and see

0:24:410:24:42

if there are some things that spring to mind.

0:24:420:24:44

I don't know the bottom one or

0:24:440:24:46

indeed the action of purifying

0:24:460:24:47

a liquid. I think the binary compound is probably an oxide

0:24:470:24:51

and I think the liquid in a solute,

0:24:510:24:55

I think might be a solvent.

0:24:550:24:57

So I'm going to take the risk.

0:24:570:24:59

I'm going to go out swinging and go solvent.

0:24:590:25:01

I don't know either, but, yes, solvent. Let's see.

0:25:020:25:05

OK, there's your red line.

0:25:050:25:06

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

0:25:060:25:09

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

0:25:090:25:11

It's right.

0:25:160:25:18

Oh, no! 32.

0:25:190:25:21

APPLAUSE

0:25:210:25:22

32, good try there.

0:25:220:25:24

Takes your total up to 102.

0:25:240:25:27

I thought that might do a bit better, Adam, solvent, it's a

0:25:270:25:30

good answer, but unlucky. The good news is now you can go out swinging.

0:25:300:25:33

LAUGHTER

0:25:330:25:34

Do feel free. You were right about oxide.

0:25:340:25:37

Actually, it would have scored you a few more points,

0:25:370:25:39

though, so would not have saved you. Would have scored 45.

0:25:390:25:42

-The next one down, do you know that one?

-That is distillation.

0:25:420:25:45

Distillation, yes. 28 points for that. And the bottom one?

0:25:450:25:49

-Condensation.

-Condensation, yeah. And that would have scored 43.

0:25:490:25:54

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

0:25:540:25:56

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

0:25:560:25:59

with a high score of 102, Adam and Hal.

0:25:590:26:00

I'm sorry, it is you. You must have known condensation there, Adam.

0:26:000:26:04

-I do now.

-LAUGHTER

0:26:040:26:05

This is no reflection on Hal's very high score in the first round,

0:26:050:26:08

but there's not a single answer on the board

0:26:080:26:10

that would have won it for you.

0:26:100:26:11

Yeah, OK. Now, Hal.

0:26:110:26:13

-I knew a few of those.

-Really?

0:26:150:26:17

Well, listen, when you come back, Hal,

0:26:170:26:19

don't go nuts but we're going to have to have some bigger risks

0:26:190:26:22

from you because it's far too soon to be sending you home.

0:26:220:26:25

I can tell you the categories I like, if you want.

0:26:250:26:27

Adam and Hal, it's been great having you on the show.

0:26:270:26:29

We'll look forward to seeing you next time.

0:26:290:26:31

And I hope we'll see much more of you. Meantime, Adam and Hal,

0:26:310:26:33

thank you very much indeed. APPLAUSE

0:26:330:26:37

But for Hannah and Jonny, and David and Izzi,

0:26:370:26:39

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

0:26:390:26:41

APPLAUSE

0:26:410:26:46

Very well done, Hannah and Jonny, David and Izzi,

0:26:460:26:49

you are now one step closer to the final and the chance to

0:26:490:26:51

play for our jackpot, which is still currently standing at £1,000.

0:26:510:26:56

Well, you know the deal here. You can start playing as teams.

0:26:560:26:58

You can chat before you give your answers.

0:26:580:27:00

The first pair to win two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:27:000:27:03

Well, very well done.

0:27:030:27:05

You saw off our only returning pair quite early on,

0:27:050:27:07

and here you are in the head-to-head.

0:27:070:27:09

Admit it, though, if the other pair was Hal and Adam,

0:27:090:27:12

think how relaxed you would be. Aw. LAUGHTER

0:27:120:27:16

But I'm afraid that's not happened. They have gone back to hospitality.

0:27:160:27:20

This, I think, should be very close.

0:27:200:27:22

You've been very, very evenly matched so far.

0:27:220:27:24

So, best of luck to both pairs.

0:27:240:27:26

Let's play the head-to-head.

0:27:260:27:27

Here comes your first question and it concerns...

0:27:320:27:35

Joseph actors.

0:27:400:27:41

Yeah, we are going to show you five people now who played Joseph.

0:27:410:27:44

-Can you identify the most obscure, please?

-Thanks very much.

0:27:440:27:47

Let's reveal our five Josephs, and here they are. We have got...

0:27:470:27:50

There we go. Five Joseph actors.

0:28:120:28:16

Hannah and Jonny, you are our low-scorers so you will go first.

0:28:160:28:19

-WHISPERS:

-C is Lee Mead, isn't it? Lee Mead.

-Yeah.

0:28:190:28:22

Which answer? Do you think Lee Mead's the best?

0:28:240:28:26

Yeah. OK.

0:28:260:28:29

We're going to go with C

0:28:290:28:31

-and we think it's Lee Mead.

-Lee Mead.

0:28:310:28:35

Lee Mead, say Hannah and Jonny for C. Now, David and Izzi.

0:28:350:28:39

Talk us through the rest of the Josephs.

0:28:390:28:41

I don't think we can, but...

0:28:410:28:44

we think we know A, B and D.

0:28:440:28:49

Jason Donovan, Gareth Gates and Phillip Schofield.

0:28:490:28:52

I think we're going to go for A, Jason Donovan.

0:28:520:28:55

OK, A, Jason Donovan, say David and Izzi.

0:28:550:28:58

So we have Lee Mead and Jason Donovan.

0:28:580:29:00

Hannah and Jonny said Lee Mead.

0:29:000:29:02

Let's see if that is right for C.

0:29:020:29:03

Let's see how many people said it.

0:29:030:29:05

It is Lee Mead.

0:29:070:29:09

26 for Lee Mead.

0:29:130:29:15

APPLAUSE

0:29:150:29:18

David and Izzi, meanwhile, have gone for Jason Donovan for A.

0:29:180:29:22

Let's see if that's right. Let's see how many people said Jason Donovan.

0:29:220:29:25

It's right.

0:29:270:29:28

42 for Jason Donovan. Well done, Hannah and Jonny.

0:29:310:29:35

-After one question you are up, 1-0.

-Two good answers there.

0:29:350:29:38

Both of those answers released versions of Any Dream Will Do.

0:29:380:29:41

Lee Mead's got to number two and Jason Donovan's got to number one.

0:29:410:29:44

-How about that?

-There you are.

0:29:440:29:45

B is Gareth Gates, as you said.

0:29:450:29:48

That would have scored you 51.

0:29:480:29:50

Do you know he released the second biggest selling

0:29:500:29:53

-single of the noughties, Gareth Gates.

-Did he?

0:29:530:29:56

Of the entire decade. His version of Unchained Melody.

0:29:560:30:00

It's just behind Will Young,

0:30:000:30:01

who released the biggest selling one of the noughties with Evergreen.

0:30:010:30:05

D is, of course, the mighty Pip Schofield.

0:30:050:30:09

Would have scored you 72 points.

0:30:090:30:11

-And E, do you know E?

-It's Darren Day.

0:30:120:30:14

Darren Day.

0:30:140:30:16

And he would have scored you 31.

0:30:160:30:18

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:30:180:30:20

So here comes your second question.

0:30:200:30:21

David and Izzi, you get to answer it first,

0:30:210:30:23

but you have to win this one to stay in the game.

0:30:230:30:25

So best of luck. It concerns...

0:30:250:30:27

Arctic animals, Richard.

0:30:300:30:32

I'm going to show you the name of five Arctic animals now,

0:30:320:30:34

animals found in the Arctic. But they are in anagram form.

0:30:340:30:37

Can you unscramble them, please?

0:30:370:30:38

OK, let's reveal our five anagrams and here they come.

0:30:380:30:41

We have got...

0:30:410:30:42

I'll read those one last time.

0:30:490:30:51

David and Izzi will go first.

0:30:570:30:59

Do you know any of them?

0:30:590:31:01

I think the top one's walrus.

0:31:010:31:03

The bottom one is Arctic fox.

0:31:030:31:05

-Shall we go for that, then?

-Yeah.

0:31:050:31:07

We're going to go for the bottom one,

0:31:070:31:10

which we think is Arctic fox.

0:31:100:31:13

Arctic fox. Arctic fox. Fix car cot.

0:31:130:31:16

Now then, Hannah and Jonny.

0:31:160:31:19

Do you want to talk us through those?

0:31:190:31:21

Yeah, I think the second one down is reindeer.

0:31:210:31:24

And then the fourth one down, we think is stoat.

0:31:240:31:28

But I don't even know if that's Arctic.

0:31:280:31:30

SHE CHUCKLES

0:31:300:31:31

-So shall we go with reindeer?

-It's going to be high-scoring.

0:31:310:31:35

It's a risk. We'll take a risk, we're going to go with stoat.

0:31:350:31:37

You are going to go with stoat.

0:31:370:31:40

OK, so we have Arctic fox and stoat.

0:31:400:31:43

David and Izzi went Arctic fox.

0:31:430:31:44

Let's see if that's right.

0:31:440:31:46

Let's see how many of our 100 said Arctic fox.

0:31:460:31:48

It's right.

0:31:500:31:52

53 for Arctic fox.

0:31:530:31:56

Jonny and Hannah, having had reindeer,

0:32:000:32:04

have decided to take a massive risk and go for stoat.

0:32:040:32:09

Let's see...let's see how many people said stoat.

0:32:090:32:13

It's right and, oh, look!

0:32:150:32:17

It's gone to 80.

0:32:180:32:20

APPLAUSE

0:32:200:32:23

Which means, David and Izzi, very well done. You're back in the game.

0:32:230:32:27

After two questions, it's 1-1.

0:32:270:32:29

Yeah, and as you predicted, reindeer,

0:32:290:32:30

it would have bought you presents.

0:32:300:32:32

It would have taken you into the jackpot round

0:32:320:32:34

cos it would have only scored 31 points.

0:32:340:32:38

-Do you know warlike hell?

-No.

0:32:380:32:40

-Killer whale.

-Aw, of course it is.

0:32:400:32:43

Killer whale would have scored you 11 points.

0:32:430:32:45

And dangers lie

0:32:450:32:46

is a ringed seal and if you got that,

0:32:460:32:48

very well done, because it's a pointless answer.

0:32:480:32:50

Terrific stuff.

0:32:500:32:52

There we are. Thank you very much indeed. OK.

0:32:520:32:55

It's your third question.

0:32:550:32:57

Oh, I'll take a risk, we'll go with the really easy one.

0:32:570:33:01

It's like Hal came back to life.

0:33:010:33:03

LAUGHTER

0:33:030:33:07

OK, here comes your third question.

0:33:070:33:08

Whoever wins this one goes through to the final

0:33:080:33:10

and plays for that jackpot. Best of luck to both pairs. It concerns...

0:33:100:33:13

Berlin, Richard.

0:33:150:33:17

I'm going to show you five clues now to facts about the city of Berlin.

0:33:170:33:20

Whichever team gives us the best answer

0:33:200:33:21

is going through to play for the jackpot.

0:33:210:33:24

OK, let's reveal our five clues, and here they come.

0:33:240:33:26

We have got these.

0:33:260:33:28

I'll read those one last time.

0:33:520:33:53

-Now, Hannah and Jonny will go first this time.

-I only know the top one.

0:34:160:34:20

-We'll just go with that, yeah?

-Yeah, OK.

0:34:200:34:23

Yeah, we're going to go with the former

0:34:230:34:25

member of the Velvet Underground

0:34:250:34:26

who released the 1973 UK top ten album, Berlin,

0:34:260:34:29

which is Lou Reed.

0:34:290:34:31

Lou Reed, say Hannah and Jonny. Lou Reed.

0:34:310:34:33

Now then, David and Izzi, that board's yours. Talk us though it.

0:34:330:34:36

I don't think we can at all, really. We're struggling a bit.

0:34:360:34:41

-We're going to take a risk, I think.

-Take a risk.

0:34:410:34:43

The Briton appointed chief conductor of the

0:34:430:34:46

Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 2002 -

0:34:460:34:49

Simon Rattle.

0:34:490:34:50

Simon Rattle, say David and Izzi. So we have Lou Reed and Simon Rattle.

0:34:500:34:54

Hannah and Jonny went for Lou Reed.

0:34:540:34:56

Let's see if that's right, former member of the Velvet Underground.

0:34:560:34:59

It is right.

0:35:010:35:02

It's a good answer, look at that.

0:35:050:35:07

Down it goes to 13 for Lou Reed.

0:35:070:35:09

Very well done indeed.

0:35:090:35:11

APPLAUSE

0:35:110:35:13

David and Izzi, meanwhile, have gone for Simon Rattle as the conductor

0:35:130:35:17

of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 2002. Let's see if that's right.

0:35:170:35:20

Let's see how many people said it.

0:35:200:35:22

It is right.

0:35:240:35:25

Now then, this, I think will be very close.

0:35:250:35:27

Which one is going to win?

0:35:270:35:29

Down it goes. Ooh, 16 for Rattle.

0:35:290:35:31

APPLAUSE

0:35:310:35:34

Rattle and Reed.

0:35:340:35:36

I'm afraid Reed wins, which means, after three questions,

0:35:360:35:39

Hannah and Jonny, you are through to the final, 2-1.

0:35:390:35:42

-Very well done indeed.

-Good scoring from both teams there.

0:35:420:35:45

Very well played. You avoided the two biggest scorers.

0:35:450:35:48

They are the Liza Minnelli musical which is...

0:35:480:35:50

-Cabaret.

-..Cabaret, which would have scored 44.

0:35:500:35:54

And the bottom answer, the president, who was...

0:35:540:35:56

-JFK.

-..JFK.

0:35:560:35:58

That would have scored 45.

0:35:580:35:59

The best answer there is the politician.

0:35:590:36:01

-Very well done at home if you said Willy Brandt.

-Willy Brandt.

0:36:010:36:04

Willy Brandt would have scored you five points.

0:36:040:36:06

Thank you very much indeed.

0:36:060:36:08

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

0:36:080:36:10

is David and Izzi. Ooh, that was close. Very, very close there.

0:36:100:36:15

You were thrown a nice lifeline with the stoat there

0:36:150:36:17

in the second answer. It's great news for us, David and Izzi.

0:36:170:36:20

Means we see you again next time. We'll look forward

0:36:200:36:22

to that very much. Meantime, thanks very much. David and Izzi.

0:36:220:36:25

APPLAUSE

0:36:250:36:28

But for Hannah and Jonny, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:36:280:36:31

APPLAUSE

0:36:310:36:34

Well, many congratulations, Hannah and Jonny.

0:36:340:36:36

You've fought of all the competition,

0:36:360:36:38

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:36:380:36:40

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:36:460:36:49

At the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £1,000.

0:36:490:36:54

Well, let's take a look and see what's on the board today.

0:36:540:36:56

Let's hope there's something up there you like the look of.

0:36:560:36:59

Today's selection looks like this.

0:36:590:37:02

-I'd say like folk rock. Unless you feel...

-What about Roaring Twenties?

0:37:110:37:16

I don't feel confident with that. Folk rock are like Neil Young or...

0:37:160:37:20

Yeah, yeah. We're going to go, yeah, we'll do that, we'll do that.

0:37:200:37:23

-Impulse.

-Are you sure?

-Let's do it. Folk rock.

0:37:230:37:25

OK, folk rock, it is, Richard.

0:37:250:37:27

Yeah, it's quite a Hebdon Bridgey sort of category, folk rock.

0:37:270:37:30

-We've got the Trades Club.

-Yeah, exactly.

0:37:300:37:32

Let's take a look at your three options.

0:37:320:37:34

We're looking for any tracks on the original release

0:37:340:37:37

of Blue, by Joni Mitchell from 1971.

0:37:370:37:39

Any tracks on the original release

0:37:390:37:42

of The Byrds' Greatest Hits from 1967.

0:37:420:37:45

Or any tracks on the original

0:37:450:37:46

release of Solitude Standing

0:37:460:37:48

by Suzanne Vega from 1987.

0:37:480:37:50

So tracks on the original releases of Blue, Byrds' Greatest Hits

0:37:500:37:54

and Solitude Standing.

0:37:540:37:55

Very best of luck.

0:37:550:37:57

OK, now, as always, you've got up to a minute to come up with

0:37:570:37:59

three answers and all you need

0:37:590:38:00

to win that jackpot is for just one of your answers to be pointless.

0:38:000:38:04

-Are you ready? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:38:040:38:05

OK, let's put 60 seconds up on the clock. There they are.

0:38:050:38:08

Your time starts now.

0:38:080:38:09

Ooh, what are you thinking?

0:38:090:38:11

So, The Byrds, I don't know,

0:38:110:38:12

is Tambourine Man one of theirs?

0:38:120:38:13

-Yes, it is.

-It's an obvious one,

0:38:130:38:15

-though.

-Yeah, it is, yeah.

0:38:150:38:16

Do you know any tracks

0:38:160:38:17

-on Blue?

-Joni Mitchell.

0:38:170:38:19

I'm going to be out of luck. I don't know any of these.

0:38:190:38:23

-I don't know any Suzanne Vega. Tambourine Man.

-Joni Mitchell,

0:38:240:38:29

she sings like that...

0:38:290:38:31

Mercedes Benz, is it called?

0:38:310:38:33

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:38:330:38:36

We can do that, we can do

0:38:360:38:37

Mr Tambourine, Mercedes Benz, is that the title of the track or...?

0:38:370:38:41

-Yeah, I don't know.

-Well, we've got two.

-Suzanne Vega?

0:38:410:38:45

Shall we just make up another Joni Mitchell?

0:38:470:38:50

Just make up at random.

0:38:500:38:51

She'll have done this one.

0:38:510:38:52

The Byrds, The Byrds, The Byrds.

0:38:520:38:54

Surely we know some Byrds songs.

0:38:540:38:55

She didn't sing, no,

0:38:550:38:57

that's Patti Smith.

0:38:570:38:58

I'm thinking Crazy Horses.

0:38:580:38:59

10 seconds left.

0:38:590:39:00

-Um, um.

-Um...

0:39:000:39:03

The Byrds!

0:39:030:39:04

OK, that's your time up.

0:39:090:39:10

I now need three answers from you,

0:39:100:39:12

-I'm so sorry.

-That's all right.

0:39:120:39:13

Um, we're going to go Mr Tambourine Man.

0:39:130:39:15

-Mr Tambourine Man for The Byrds.

-Yeah.

0:39:150:39:17

-Mercedes Benz by Joni Mitchell.

-Mercedes Benz.

0:39:190:39:23

And I don't know...

0:39:230:39:26

London Bridge by The Byrds.

0:39:260:39:28

SHE LAUGHS And London Bridge by The Byrds.

0:39:280:39:30

OK, now, of those three, which is your most likely to be pointless?

0:39:300:39:34

-Your best shot?

-None of them.

-We'll go with Tambourine Man.

0:39:340:39:38

Mr Tambourine Man, we'll put last. Least likely?

0:39:380:39:41

London Bridge.

0:39:410:39:43

OK, by The Byrds, of course.

0:39:430:39:44

OK, well, let's pop those up on the board in that order, then,

0:39:440:39:47

and here they are. We have got...

0:39:470:39:49

Well, very, very best of luck. You never know.

0:39:520:39:54

One of those answers might turn out to be pointless.

0:39:540:39:57

What would you do with that jackpot if it were?

0:39:570:40:00

Well, my dad lives in Kenya,

0:40:000:40:02

so it could go towards the flights to go see him.

0:40:020:40:04

Hannah.

0:40:040:40:05

I'd buy Jonny a pet stoat.

0:40:050:40:09

THEY LAUGH

0:40:090:40:13

OK, well, very best of luck. Your first answer was London Bridge.

0:40:130:40:17

In this case we were looking for hits by The Byrds

0:40:170:40:19

on their Greatest Hits album.

0:40:190:40:21

Let's see, obviously it has be pointless

0:40:210:40:22

for you to win the jackpot.

0:40:220:40:24

Let's find out if it's right, shall we, for £1,000.

0:40:240:40:27

No, that would've been a surprise.

0:40:290:40:33

Your next answer was Mercedes Benz.

0:40:330:40:35

In this case we were looking for

0:40:350:40:37

tracks from Joni Mitchell's album Blue.

0:40:370:40:40

Let's find out if that's right.

0:40:400:40:42

For £1,000, how many people said Mercedes Benz? Is it pointless?

0:40:420:40:46

No, bad luck.

0:40:490:40:50

OK, that means everything is now riding on your third

0:40:500:40:53

and final answer, which is Mr Tambourine Man.

0:40:530:40:56

In this case we were looking for Greatest Hits by The Byrds.

0:40:560:40:58

Again, if it is pointless, it will win you £1,000.

0:40:580:41:01

Let's see how many people said Mr Tambourine Man.

0:41:010:41:04

Well, it's right. Your first answer, London Bridge, was incorrect.

0:41:060:41:11

Your second answer, Mercedes Benz, was incorrect.

0:41:110:41:13

Mr Tambourine Man taking us down

0:41:130:41:15

through the 20s into the teens.

0:41:150:41:17

17 for Mr Tambourine Man.

0:41:170:41:19

Well, listen, that was a valiant attempt.

0:41:220:41:24

It's always tough when you are presented with categories like that.

0:41:240:41:28

That was probably, maybe, your best shot. I don't know.

0:41:280:41:30

-It could have been something you might have known.

-Yeah.

0:41:300:41:32

You didn't manage to find a pointless answer but you have

0:41:320:41:35

won a Pointless trophy and you have been brilliant on the show.

0:41:350:41:38

So, very, very well done for both of those,

0:41:380:41:40

-Hannah and Jonny, well done.

-Thank you.

0:41:400:41:42

Yeah, it's been a genuine pleasure having you here.

0:41:450:41:48

As our gift to you, I'd recommend listening to all three

0:41:480:41:50

of those albums cos they are all absolutely terrific. Mercedes Benz

0:41:500:41:53

is by Janis Joplin, not by Joni Mitchell.

0:41:530:41:55

And London Bridge is by nobody, although, funnily enough,

0:41:550:41:57

Fergie from Black Eyed Peas did have a hit with that,

0:41:570:42:00

but I suspect that wasn't who you were thinking of.

0:42:000:42:02

Let's take a look at Joni Mitchell first.

0:42:020:42:06

A Case Of You is a pointless answer, My Old Man

0:42:060:42:09

and The Last Time I Saw Richard

0:42:090:42:10

was about she had Series Links Pointless, it went wrong once,

0:42:100:42:13

and she wrote a song about that.

0:42:130:42:15

We'll move on to The Byrds.

0:42:150:42:17

All I Really Want To Do, Chimes Of Freedom, which is

0:42:170:42:19

another Bob Dylan cover, I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better and

0:42:190:42:23

So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star.

0:42:230:42:25

Also, 5D was a pointless answer for The Byrds' Greatest Hits.

0:42:250:42:30

And let's take a look at Suzanne Vega.

0:42:300:42:31

Another lovely album.

0:42:310:42:33

Calypso, Gypsy. You could have had In The Eye, Night Vision,

0:42:330:42:37

a couple more there, Language, Wooden Horse and Ironbound.

0:42:370:42:40

Very well done if you said any of those at home.

0:42:400:42:42

Thanks very much indeed.

0:42:420:42:43

Well, unfortunately we have to say goodbye to you, Hannah and Jonny,

0:42:430:42:46

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

0:42:460:42:48

Brilliant performance right across it.

0:42:480:42:50

Thank you so much for playing, and playing so well, Hannah and Jonny.

0:42:500:42:53

APPLAUSE

0:42:530:42:56

Well, sadly, Hannah and Jonny didn't win our jackpot today

0:42:560:42:59

which means it rolls over onto the next show, when we will be playing

0:42:590:43:02

for £2,000.

0:43:020:43:03

Join us then, see if someone can win it.

0:43:050:43:07

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:070:43:09

And it's goodbye from me, goodbye.

0:43:090:43:11
