APPLAUSE

0:00:160:00:22

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:220:00:23

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

0:00:230:00:26

the show that makes big winners out of the lowest scorers.

0:00:260:00:28

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:30

APPLAUSE

0:00:300:00:34

And couple number one.

0:00:340:00:35

Hi, I'm Dan from York, and this is my mate, Andy, from London.

0:00:350:00:38

Couple number two.

0:00:380:00:40

My name's Sarah. This is my mum, Anne,

0:00:400:00:41

and we're from near Kirby Lonsdale in South Cumbria.

0:00:410:00:44

-Couple number three.

-Hi, I'm Jit.

0:00:440:00:47

This is my friend Bepin, and we're from north-west London.

0:00:470:00:49

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:490:00:51

Hi, I'm Liz. This is my very good friend Julie,

0:00:510:00:53

and we're from Brighton.

0:00:530:00:55

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:550:00:57

APPLAUSE

0:00:570:00:59

Thanks very much, all of you.

0:00:590:01:00

A warm welcome to you all.

0:01:000:01:02

We'll find out more about you throughout the show

0:01:020:01:04

as it goes along, so that just leaves one more person

0:01:040:01:06

for me to introduce.

0:01:060:01:07

I predict a very polite,

0:01:070:01:08

tautly reasoned and exquisitely administered riot.

0:01:080:01:12

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

0:01:120:01:14

-APPLAUSE

-Hiya.

0:01:140:01:16

Hi, everybody.

0:01:160:01:19

Good afternoon to you.

0:01:190:01:21

Good afternoon.

0:01:210:01:22

Three returning pairs from the last show.

0:01:220:01:24

We still haven't quite got over a couple of shows ago,

0:01:240:01:27

giving away £11,000.

0:01:270:01:28

-No. A bit giddy.

-Quite...

0:01:280:01:29

-Still giddy.

-Still a bit, Hee-hee!

-Still giddy.

0:01:290:01:32

But, amongst us, we have someone who's given us a pointless answer.

0:01:320:01:35

Anne, in the last show, gave us a pointless answer

0:01:350:01:37

with antepenultimate, Words Ending M-A-T-E.

0:01:370:01:40

It was very, very impressive.

0:01:400:01:41

And Bepin and Jit got through to our head-to-head last time,

0:01:410:01:44

so they've got to start as early favourites, I suspect,

0:01:440:01:47

-for today's show.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:01:470:01:49

Well, Ian and Suzanne didn't win the jackpot last time,

0:01:490:01:51

so we add another £1,000 to that.

0:01:510:01:53

So, today's jackpot starts off at £2,250.

0:01:530:01:56

APPLAUSE

0:01:560:02:00

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

0:02:000:02:03

APPLAUSE

0:02:030:02:08

So, I know you all know this, but I'm going to say it anyway -

0:02:080:02:11

the pair with the highest score

0:02:110:02:12

at the end of each round

0:02:120:02:14

will be eliminated.

0:02:140:02:15

Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:150:02:16

Our first category this afternoon...

0:02:160:02:19

Books And Plays.

0:02:210:02:22

Can you all decide, in your pairs,

0:02:220:02:24

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

0:02:240:02:26

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

0:02:260:02:29

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:320:02:34

Works Of Literature And Their Subtitles, Richard.

0:02:400:02:42

On each board, we're going to show you seven subtitles

0:02:420:02:44

or alternate titles of famous books or plays,

0:02:440:02:46

alongside their author as well.

0:02:460:02:48

We just need you to name the book or play, please.

0:02:480:02:50

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

0:02:500:02:53

-so very best of luck.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:02:530:02:55

So, let's reveal our first board of seven subtitles, and here they are.

0:02:550:02:59

We have got...

0:02:590:03:01

I'll read those one last time.

0:03:170:03:19

Dan, a warm welcome to Pointless.

0:03:320:03:35

What do you do up in York, Dan?

0:03:350:03:36

I'm a lecturer.

0:03:360:03:38

-At the university?

-Yes.

0:03:380:03:40

What do you lecture in?

0:03:400:03:41

Social policy.

0:03:410:03:42

And how long have you been lecturing?

0:03:420:03:45

Three and a bit years.

0:03:450:03:46

And what do you do when you're not lecturing?

0:03:460:03:49

A bit of football,

0:03:490:03:51

not to a very high standard, but a bit of football, a bit of jogging.

0:03:510:03:54

But we've got two young children,

0:03:540:03:56

-so it's mostly parenting.

-Mostly parenting, absolutely.

0:03:560:03:59

Now, Dan, how do you find this board?

0:03:590:04:02

It should be easy, and it's not.

0:04:020:04:04

It should be easy, you're absolutely right.

0:04:040:04:06

And I was about to say,

0:04:060:04:08

I'm going to play it safe,

0:04:080:04:09

so I'm going to go for The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up,

0:04:090:04:12

and I'm going to go...

0:04:120:04:14

..The Adventures Of Peter Pan.

0:04:150:04:17

The Adventures Of Peter Pan, says Dan. The Adventures Of Peter Pan.

0:04:170:04:20

Let's see if that's right.

0:04:200:04:22

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

0:04:220:04:24

It's right.

0:04:260:04:27

59. APPLAUSE

0:04:290:04:33

59 for Peter Pan.

0:04:330:04:35

Yeah, Peter Pan.

0:04:350:04:36

First premiered as a play in 1904.

0:04:360:04:39

There we are.

0:04:390:04:40

Released as a novel later, Peter And Wendy.

0:04:400:04:42

There we are again.

0:04:420:04:44

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:04:440:04:46

Sarah, welcome back.

0:04:460:04:48

Remind us what you do, Sarah.

0:04:480:04:49

I'm an English literature student at Newcastle University.

0:04:490:04:53

-You've just finished your first year.

-Yeah.

0:04:530:04:56

No, no, we'll come to the board in a moment, don't you worry.

0:04:560:04:59

Apart from English literature,

0:04:590:05:00

what do you like getting up to at university?

0:05:000:05:04

I like going to gigs,

0:05:040:05:07

going to the pub,

0:05:070:05:09

going to festivals.

0:05:090:05:11

That sort of stuff, really.

0:05:110:05:12

That kind of caper.

0:05:120:05:14

OK, now, Sarah...

0:05:140:05:15

..this board of these plays and these books.

0:05:160:05:19

It's not actually too bad.

0:05:190:05:20

I think I'm going to play kind of safe,

0:05:230:05:24

cos I did this book last semester,

0:05:240:05:26

and say Frankenstein

0:05:260:05:28

for The Modern Prometheus.

0:05:280:05:30

OK, Frankenstein, says Sarah.

0:05:300:05:32

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

0:05:320:05:36

It's right.

0:05:370:05:38

43. APPLAUSE

0:05:420:05:44

43.

0:05:460:05:48

Well played, Sarah. First published in 1818.

0:05:480:05:49

Students have taken to saying "semester".

0:05:490:05:51

I was just thinking that as well.

0:05:510:05:53

We've had that a few times recently.

0:05:530:05:54

For us, it was just Ferris Bueller's Day Off or something, wasn't it?

0:05:540:05:57

-Yeah.

-These days, actually what they call it.

-Yeah.

0:05:570:06:00

I've only heard that in terms of pregnancy before.

0:06:000:06:02

-What, semester?

-Yeah.

0:06:020:06:03

Oh, no, trimester.

0:06:030:06:05

I do beg your pardon. LAUGHTER

0:06:050:06:06

That's the one.

0:06:060:06:08

Do you know what? I've said this before, I'm going to say it again.

0:06:080:06:11

-Your poor wife.

-Oh, I know.

0:06:110:06:13

I know.

0:06:130:06:14

Yeah, so, semester - apparently that's...

0:06:140:06:16

Well, that's good, we can keep up with that.

0:06:160:06:18

Thank you, Richard. Now, Jit.

0:06:180:06:20

Hi.

0:06:200:06:22

Jit, welcome back.

0:06:220:06:23

Remind us what you do, Jit.

0:06:230:06:24

I'm an accountant, so I work for a digital media agency in London.

0:06:240:06:27

-What do they do?

-Digital marketing.

0:06:270:06:29

Digital marketing.

0:06:290:06:31

-You're none the wiser, are you?

-No, absolutely no idea.

0:06:310:06:33

Digital marketing, though.

0:06:330:06:35

They're fun accounts to run, aren't they?

0:06:350:06:38

More fun than others, I would say.

0:06:380:06:40

Yes, I'd say. Now, when you're not accounting, Jit,

0:06:400:06:42

what do you get up to?

0:06:420:06:44

Yeah, so I'm a big sports fan,

0:06:440:06:45

so I love to play golf and follow cricket as much as I can...

0:06:450:06:49

and a bit of film now and again, yeah.

0:06:490:06:52

OK, now, this board...

0:06:520:06:54

of our subtitles.

0:06:540:06:56

How are you feeling about it?

0:06:560:06:58

Not very good.

0:06:580:07:00

So, I...

0:07:000:07:01

..am going to have to go for the obvious one,

0:07:020:07:04

I think it's obvious anyway.

0:07:040:07:05

So, it's There And Back Again - The Lord Of The Rings.

0:07:050:07:08

The Lord Of The Rings, says Jit, for There And Back Again,

0:07:080:07:10

Let's see if that's right.

0:07:100:07:12

Let's see how many of our 100 people said, The Lord Of The Rings.

0:07:120:07:15

-No.

-It's The Hobbit.

0:07:170:07:19

It is not The Lord Of The Rings, I'm afraid, Jit.

0:07:190:07:21

That scores you 100 points.

0:07:210:07:23

Yeah, sorry, Jit, but at least it turns out

0:07:230:07:25

-you didn't go for the obvious one.

-Yeah, exactly.

0:07:250:07:27

LAUGHTER

0:07:270:07:29

There we are.

0:07:290:07:30

Thanks very much indeed. Now, Julie, welcome back.

0:07:300:07:32

-Hi there.

-It was Round One.

0:07:320:07:35

I don't think it was any fault of yours.

0:07:350:07:36

Two perfectly good answers we had in our word round,

0:07:360:07:39

-but they were just high-scorers.

-They were, weren't they?

0:07:390:07:41

I've thought of another one when it was a bit late.

0:07:410:07:44

What's decimate?

0:07:440:07:45

Hold on a minute.

0:07:450:07:47

That was on the last... You can't do that.

0:07:470:07:50

-LAUGHTER

-Oh, sorry.

0:07:500:07:51

That's absolutely outrageous.

0:07:510:07:53

-Oh, I'm so sorry.

-I can't believe it. Would have scored 11 points.

0:07:530:07:56

-Really?

-Oh.

0:07:560:07:57

It would have been great if it scored 10, wouldn't it?

0:07:570:08:00

-Yeah.

-Oh, wouldn't that have been lovely?

0:08:000:08:01

That is the longest anyone's taken to answer a question

0:08:010:08:04

-in the history of Pointless.

-LAUGHTER

0:08:040:08:07

-And you go through, what about that?

-Thanks.

0:08:070:08:09

But into last show's Round Two.

0:08:090:08:11

Now, Julie, this board is all yours.

0:08:110:08:13

If you wanted to, you could talk us through it

0:08:130:08:15

and fill in all those blanks.

0:08:150:08:17

I can't do all of them.

0:08:170:08:19

Well, I hope I can do some of them.

0:08:190:08:21

I think A Romance Of Exmoor

0:08:210:08:23

might be Lorna Doone.

0:08:230:08:24

A Study Of Provincial Life,

0:08:260:08:28

is that Mill On The floss?

0:08:280:08:30

The Whale...

0:08:300:08:32

Moby-Dick.

0:08:320:08:33

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

0:08:340:08:36

and hope I'm right with Lorna Doone.

0:08:360:08:39

Lorna Doone, says Julie.

0:08:390:08:40

Let's see how many of our 100 people said, Lorna Doone.

0:08:400:08:43

It's right. Very well done, Julie.

0:08:450:08:48

Well, 43 is our low score at this point,

0:08:480:08:50

you whizz past that.

0:08:500:08:52

Down, you go, to 10.

0:08:520:08:53

APPLAUSE

0:08:530:08:54

That's the score you were after with decimate, of course...

0:08:540:08:57

and you get it with Lorna Doone.

0:08:570:08:59

Yeah, very well played, Julie.

0:08:590:09:01

I'm looking forward to the answer you give us next time as well.

0:09:010:09:04

Now, let's fill in the rest of these.

0:09:040:09:06

You are absolutely right about The Whale.

0:09:060:09:08

That is Moby-Dick...

0:09:080:09:11

and that would have scored 41 points.

0:09:110:09:12

But let's clear up There And Back Again. Not Lord of the Rings.

0:09:120:09:15

You won't be the only person to have made that mistake, I can assure you.

0:09:150:09:18

-It was...

-The Hobbit.

0:09:180:09:20

-The Hobbit.

-Yep, 20 points for that.

0:09:200:09:22

Study Of Provincial Life is not Mill On The Floss.

0:09:220:09:25

-Middlemarch.

-Middlemarch.

0:09:250:09:26

It's the best answer on the board as well,

0:09:260:09:28

would have scored you 3 points.

0:09:280:09:30

And A Trivial Comedy For Serious People?

0:09:300:09:32

I would say The Importance Of Being Earnest as a punt.

0:09:320:09:34

You would be right. Yep.

0:09:340:09:35

Would score you 16 points.

0:09:350:09:37

Thank you very much. Well, we're halfway through our first round.

0:09:370:09:40

Let's take a look at those scores.

0:09:400:09:41

Well, Julie and Liz, look at that,

0:09:410:09:43

our low scorers there on the far podium.

0:09:430:09:45

Very well done indeed, lovely low-scoring from you, Julie.

0:09:450:09:48

Then up to 43, where we find Sarah and Anne.

0:09:480:09:50

Then up to 59, Dan and Andy.

0:09:500:09:52

And then, oh, Jit and Bepin,

0:09:520:09:53

I'm sorry, 100 points.

0:09:530:09:56

That's high. Bepin, find a low score on the next board,

0:09:560:09:59

truffle it out and let's hope it's low enough to keep you in the game.

0:09:590:10:02

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

0:10:020:10:04

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:10:040:10:07

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

0:10:080:10:12

We've got...

0:10:120:10:14

I'll read all of those one last time.

0:10:320:10:34

Liz, welcome back.

0:10:500:10:52

-Hello.

-Also here from Brighton.

0:10:520:10:53

Now, you and Julie met on a writing course.

0:10:530:10:56

-We did.

-And you said you've been friends for a very long time.

0:10:560:10:59

We had, but we lost touch and then we met again in the pub.

0:10:590:11:02

She recognised me.

0:11:020:11:03

Oh, that's nice. Had you fallen out over a piece of writing?

0:11:030:11:06

-No, no.

-Maybe a short story.

0:11:060:11:08

A thinly disguised version of Julie had appeared.

0:11:080:11:11

No, nothing like that.

0:11:110:11:13

Has Julie come back to the group?

0:11:130:11:14

Yes. Different group, but...

0:11:140:11:16

-That's good.

-So, we run each other's stories past each other, don't we?

0:11:160:11:19

That's nice, nice to have an editor before it goes.

0:11:190:11:22

-Do you ever have to read them out to the rest of the group?

-Yes.

0:11:220:11:25

That's quite nervy, isn't it?

0:11:250:11:26

The worst part was

0:11:260:11:27

reading other people's and trying not to laugh.

0:11:270:11:30

Oh, now, Liz, that's unfair.

0:11:300:11:31

It is unkind. Sorry.

0:11:310:11:33

Now, Liz, what about this board?

0:11:330:11:35

You're currently riding high there with only 10.

0:11:350:11:38

Do you want to keep this up with a nice low score here?

0:11:380:11:41

I do know some of them.

0:11:430:11:45

I don't really want to risk

0:11:450:11:47

the ones I'm not sure about.

0:11:470:11:49

I think the ones I know mostly are children's books, but...

0:11:490:11:52

Well, I'll go for one that isn't a children's book, The Moor Of Venice,

0:11:540:11:57

which I think is Otello.

0:11:570:11:59

Otello, or Othello, says Liz.

0:11:590:12:01

Nice opera pronunciation there.

0:12:010:12:04

Othello. Here is your red line, lovely and high.

0:12:040:12:06

If you can get below that with Othello,

0:12:060:12:08

you are through to the next round.

0:12:080:12:09

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

0:12:090:12:12

You're through. Very well done.

0:12:140:12:15

That's a great answer. APPLAUSE

0:12:190:12:21

17, takes your total up to 27.

0:12:210:12:24

The lowest total of the round,

0:12:240:12:25

I can say, right now.

0:12:250:12:27

Well played, Liz. Very impressive. Yeah.

0:12:270:12:29

It was first performed in 1604, Othello.

0:12:290:12:31

Thank you, Richard.

0:12:310:12:33

Now, Bepin, you're the high-scorers.

0:12:330:12:35

We need a low score from you.

0:12:350:12:36

Remind us what you do, Bepin.

0:12:360:12:38

I'm a chartered accountant.

0:12:380:12:39

Are you also an accountant for a digital marketing company?

0:12:390:12:42

I'm not, no. For a property company.

0:12:420:12:44

Oh, that's OK, property company's quite fun as well. Isn't it?

0:12:440:12:46

It's not quite as fun as digital marketing but...

0:12:460:12:49

-Not that glamorous.

-Which region of London do you work in?

0:12:490:12:52

Quite central. West End.

0:12:520:12:53

Sort of near Leicester Square.

0:12:530:12:55

-I see, quite a nice place to be.

-Yeah, very nice.

0:12:550:12:57

Yeah, very good.

0:12:570:12:58

And what are your interests outside the world of accounting?

0:12:580:13:01

I play a bit of golf,

0:13:010:13:03

I like my films...

0:13:030:13:04

Reading every now and again.

0:13:060:13:07

OK. Have you read any of these books?

0:13:070:13:10

I have read one of them a long time ago as a physics graduate,

0:13:100:13:14

but I'm not sure of the title -

0:13:140:13:16

but I'm going to have a guess.

0:13:160:13:18

The Stephen Hawking one,

0:13:180:13:19

A Brief History Of Time.

0:13:190:13:20

A Brief History Of Time, says Bepin.

0:13:200:13:22

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

0:13:220:13:24

Let's see how many of our 100 people said, A Brief History Of Time.

0:13:240:13:28

It's right.

0:13:280:13:30

There we are, 16, good answer. APPLAUSE

0:13:350:13:39

116. I mean, you could feasibly

0:13:390:13:41

have kept yourself in the game with that, Bepin.

0:13:410:13:43

Yeah, well played.

0:13:430:13:44

A book that attempts to explain all sorts of things -

0:13:440:13:47

the big bang, the black hole - to non-specialist readers.

0:13:470:13:49

Thank you, Richard.

0:13:490:13:51

Now then, Anne.

0:13:510:13:52

-Hello.

-Welcome back.

-Thank you.

0:13:520:13:53

Now, Anne, last time you were here,

0:13:530:13:55

you were wearing a beautiful rainbow-coloured jersey.

0:13:550:13:58

I was, yes.

0:13:580:13:59

That was somehow symbolic because your parish is the Rainbow Parish.

0:13:590:14:02

It is known as the Rainbow Parish.

0:14:020:14:03

Cos it's got seven or actually eight teams...

0:14:030:14:05

It started off with seven churches in the group.

0:14:050:14:07

It's got eight now,

0:14:070:14:09

but we still call it the Rainbow Parish.

0:14:090:14:11

-Very good indeed. And you are here from Kirby Lonsdale...

-Yep.

0:14:110:14:14

..where you are a curate.

0:14:140:14:15

How long have you been the curate there?

0:14:150:14:17

Just over a year.

0:14:170:14:19

Oh, I see, so very recent.

0:14:190:14:20

-Yes.

-Do you ever preach?

0:14:200:14:22

Oh, yes.

0:14:220:14:23

Will Pointless be featuring as...

0:14:230:14:26

As the beginning...

0:14:260:14:27

You know, you always have to start off a sermon

0:14:270:14:29

with something quite funny.

0:14:290:14:31

When I was training, I was on placement in a church

0:14:310:14:33

and the only sermon I preached in that placement church,

0:14:330:14:36

I did actually mention Pointless.

0:14:360:14:37

-There you are.

-But that was three or four years ago.

0:14:370:14:40

I wonder what sort of other allegory you can draw out of Pointless.

0:14:400:14:42

We'll have to see what kind of show it is.

0:14:420:14:44

-It sort of depends if Anne wins or not.

-Well, exactly.

0:14:440:14:47

I suspect if she doesn't win,

0:14:470:14:48

there's going to be no sermon at all.

0:14:480:14:51

Probably learn a lot about how to deal with failure

0:14:510:14:53

-as well as how to deal with success.

-See? There we are.

0:14:530:14:55

There we are.

0:14:550:14:57

Anyway, Anne, what would you like to go for?

0:14:570:14:59

You're on 43, if you can score 72 or less...

0:14:590:15:01

OK. I think I know most of them.

0:15:010:15:04

Again, most of them are, sort of, from my childhood,

0:15:060:15:08

but I will also go for the one that's not a children's story

0:15:080:15:12

and The Sacred And Profane Memories Of Captain Charles Ryder -

0:15:120:15:16

Brideshead Revisited.

0:15:160:15:17

Brideshead Revisited, says Anne. Here is your red line.

0:15:170:15:20

Nice and high. Get below that with Brideshead Revisisted,

0:15:200:15:22

you are into Round Two. Let's see how many people said it.

0:15:220:15:26

It's right.

0:15:270:15:29

And you are through to the next round.

0:15:290:15:31

Well done.

0:15:310:15:33

That's a good answer.

0:15:330:15:34

Look at that. Down it goes to five. APPLAUSE

0:15:340:15:37

Not just a good answer, the best answer of the round so far.

0:15:370:15:40

48 is your total.

0:15:400:15:41

Yeah, very famously, of course,

0:15:410:15:42

it was the Downton Abbey of its time,

0:15:420:15:44

the TV series of Brideshead Revisited.

0:15:440:15:46

-Wasn't it? Yes.

-From 1981.

0:15:460:15:48

Yeah. What a piece of work.

0:15:480:15:49

-Oh, wasn't he?

-Yeah.

0:15:490:15:51

-I didn't watch it.

-No.

0:15:510:15:52

LAUGHTER

0:15:520:15:54

But, Grr!

0:15:540:15:55

You and I were both 11.

0:15:550:15:57

Yeah, exactly, so I think we've got an excuse.

0:15:570:15:59

-Yeah.

-To me, it's like A Brief History Of Time.

-Exactly.

0:15:590:16:02

-I know it exists...

-That wasn't me saying it was before our time,

0:16:020:16:05

you understand, that wasn't me contravening the...

0:16:050:16:07

-Ooh, sounded a bit like...

-..the cardinal rule.

0:16:070:16:09

-We wouldn't have watched it.

-No, I was just saying we were in bed.

0:16:090:16:12

-I mean... Yes, we were in bed.

-LAUGHTER

0:16:120:16:15

Really? In front of a curate?

0:16:150:16:17

LAUGHTER

0:16:170:16:20

-Erm, Andy.

-Hello.

0:16:200:16:21

Andy, welcome to Pointless.

0:16:210:16:23

Yes, our only new couple, in fact.

0:16:230:16:25

Andy, what do you do?

0:16:250:16:27

I'm an anti-doping scientist.

0:16:270:16:29

-Oh, now THAT'S fun.

-We haven't had one of those before.

0:16:320:16:34

Never.

0:16:340:16:35

In 936 shows,

0:16:350:16:38

we've never had an anti-doping scientist.

0:16:380:16:40

In which areas do you anti-dope?

0:16:400:16:43

-It's all sports. So, all the...

-All sports.

0:16:430:16:45

-Football, rugby, athletes.

-Oh, I see, but it's humans,

0:16:450:16:47

it's not racehorses or anything like that?

0:16:470:16:49

-No, it's not dogs, it's just humans.

-I see. OK.

0:16:490:16:52

Goodness me. So, your job is to turn up and...

0:16:520:16:55

-ring people's doorbells?

-No, I work in a lab.

0:16:550:16:58

-Oh, you work in a lab?

-Yes.

-So, you get brought the samples.

0:16:580:17:01

-I get brought all the samples.

-OK.

0:17:010:17:02

So, do you add chemicals and see what happens?

0:17:020:17:04

Or do you dip bits or paper in

0:17:040:17:05

and see what happens?

0:17:050:17:07

We take the sample and then put it in an instrument

0:17:070:17:09

-and it tells us whether...

-A centrifuge?

0:17:090:17:11

-Yeah, we use a centrifuge, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:17:110:17:13

And you can see, at a glance, what has...

0:17:130:17:15

-Pretty much, yeah.

-..what's been going on.

0:17:150:17:17

If the centrifuge goes faster, you know there's drugs in the sample.

0:17:170:17:20

Yeah. LAUGHTER

0:17:200:17:22

Now, then, Andy...

0:17:220:17:23

..you're on 59, you have to score 56 or less to stay with us.

0:17:230:17:26

That board's all yours. Talk us through it.

0:17:260:17:29

Right, well...

0:17:290:17:30

I'm not 100% on any of them.

0:17:300:17:33

I think the top one, at a guess,

0:17:330:17:35

would be...

0:17:350:17:36

maybe Lord Of The Flies.

0:17:360:17:38

And then The Autobiography Of A Horse...

0:17:380:17:40

Black Beauty. So, I'll go with that one. Black Beauty.

0:17:420:17:45

You're going to go with Black Beauty.

0:17:450:17:47

OK. Here's your red line.

0:17:470:17:48

If you can get below that with Black Beauty, you're into Round Two.

0:17:480:17:51

How many of our 100 people said, Black Beauty?

0:17:510:17:54

It's right.

0:17:570:17:58

Well done. Oh, look at that. APPLAUSE

0:17:590:18:02

You needed 56, you got 51.

0:18:020:18:04

Your total is 110.

0:18:040:18:06

-Very well done.

-Yeah, very well done.

0:18:060:18:09

It sold over 50 million copies, Black Beauty.

0:18:090:18:11

Isn't that amazing? Let's fill in the rest of these.

0:18:110:18:14

It's the only one you knew,

0:18:140:18:15

cos you were wrong about The Children's Crusade.

0:18:150:18:18

-That is, of course...

-Slaughterhouse Five.

-..Slaughterhouse Five.

0:18:180:18:21

Lord Of The Flies is William Golding. Four points for that.

0:18:210:18:24

Louisa M Alcott, lots of people would have got.

0:18:240:18:26

-Little Women.

-Little Women.

0:18:260:18:28

26. And The Magical Car?

0:18:280:18:30

-Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

-Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

0:18:300:18:32

And that would have scored you 38,

0:18:320:18:34

so the best answer on the board is Slaughterhouse Five.

0:18:340:18:36

Very well played if you got that.

0:18:360:18:37

Thank you very much indeed.

0:18:370:18:39

So, at the end of our first round,

0:18:390:18:40

the pair we've got to say goodbye to...

0:18:400:18:42

They were in the head-to-head last time, Bepin and Jit.

0:18:420:18:44

I'm so sorry. Round One, this time, we have to say goodbye to you.

0:18:440:18:47

Been great having you on the show.

0:18:470:18:48

-Thank you so much for playing. Bepin and Jit.

-Thanks.

0:18:480:18:51

APPLAUSE

0:18:510:18:53

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

0:18:530:18:56

APPLAUSE

0:18:560:19:00

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

0:19:000:19:03

This is very pleasing.

0:19:030:19:04

Liz and Julie, our two writers,

0:19:040:19:06

our lowest scoring team there, so well done.

0:19:060:19:09

And Anne, our lowest scoring individual.

0:19:090:19:11

So, very well done. Best of luck to all three pairs.

0:19:110:19:13

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:19:130:19:16

Celebrity Marriages.

0:19:180:19:19

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

0:19:190:19:21

who's going to go second?

0:19:210:19:22

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

0:19:220:19:25

OK, and the question concerns...

0:19:280:19:30

Husbands and wives, Richard.

0:19:340:19:35

Yeah, we're going to show you 12 pictures now,

0:19:350:19:37

on the board, of celebrities.

0:19:370:19:39

We need the name of anyone who has been married

0:19:390:19:41

to one of these 12 people, please.

0:19:410:19:42

So, the full name of anyone who's been married

0:19:420:19:44

to one of these 12 people.

0:19:440:19:46

Very best of luck.

0:19:460:19:47

OK. So, as Richard's just said,

0:19:470:19:49

we're going to put 12 people up on the board.

0:19:490:19:50

They're going to stay for the whole round.

0:19:500:19:52

OK, let's reveal our 12 people,

0:19:520:19:54

and here they come.

0:19:540:19:56

So we're looking for anyone who's been married

0:19:560:19:58

to any one of these people.

0:19:580:19:59

There we go.

0:20:000:20:02

Dan...

0:20:040:20:06

we just need a name from you.

0:20:060:20:07

Don't need to associated it with any of the people there.

0:20:070:20:10

You can just say a name.

0:20:100:20:12

Well, I think it's quite a tough board.

0:20:120:20:14

I'm going to go with Billie Piper.

0:20:150:20:17

Billie Piper, says Dan. Billie Piper.

0:20:170:20:19

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

0:20:190:20:23

It's right.

0:20:250:20:26

49. APPLAUSE

0:20:290:20:31

49. Not bad.

0:20:310:20:33

Yeah, well played.

0:20:330:20:34

She was married to the gentleman on the bottom row,

0:20:340:20:37

-second from the right.

-Yes, gentleman.

0:20:370:20:39

That gentleman.

0:20:390:20:41

I don't think that's what he was referred to as at his wedding.

0:20:410:20:43

Do you, the gentleman on the bottom row, second from the right

0:20:430:20:47

take Billie Piper, out of Doctor Who,

0:20:470:20:49

to be your lawfully wedded wife?

0:20:490:20:50

There we are.

0:20:500:20:52

OK. Now, Anne...

0:20:520:20:54

what would you like to go for?

0:20:540:20:56

Hmm.

0:20:560:20:58

Not even sure who most of them are.

0:20:580:21:00

I would like to go...

0:21:020:21:04

Natasha Kaplinsky.

0:21:040:21:06

Natasha Kaplinsky, says Anne.

0:21:060:21:08

Let's see if that's right.

0:21:080:21:09

Let's see how many of our 100 people said, Natasha Kaplinsky.

0:21:090:21:13

I'm sorry, Anne. I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer

0:21:160:21:19

and it scores you 100 points.

0:21:190:21:21

I am intrigued now, though,

0:21:210:21:22

-that Anne knows some celebrity gossip that we don't know.

-Yeah.

0:21:220:21:25

LAUGHTER

0:21:250:21:27

Interesting.

0:21:270:21:28

Now, Liz...

0:21:280:21:30

we are looking for the husbands or wives

0:21:300:21:32

of any one of these people.

0:21:320:21:34

I find this quite difficult

0:21:350:21:37

but I'm going to say Bruce Willis.

0:21:370:21:39

Bruce Willis, says Liz. Bruce Willis.

0:21:390:21:41

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

0:21:410:21:43

It's right.

0:21:450:21:46

That's a good answer, Liz.

0:21:500:21:51

Very well done indeed. 30 for Bruce Willis.

0:21:510:21:53

APPLAUSE

0:21:530:21:56

Well played, Liz. Yeah, he married the lady on the top left...

0:21:570:22:00

Mm-hmm.

0:22:000:22:02

-..didn't he?

-Very discreet - this, somehow - isn't it?

-It really is.

0:22:020:22:05

The lady on the top left.

0:22:050:22:06

-Yeah.

-Ahem.

0:22:060:22:08

THEY CLEAR THEIR THROATS

0:22:080:22:09

-Yep. Yes, he did.

-Of course, Bruce Willis,

0:22:090:22:11

You know who he went on to marry?

0:22:110:22:12

-Natasha Kaplinsky.

-LAUGHTER

0:22:120:22:14

-Of course. One forgets that.

-Yep.

0:22:140:22:16

We're halfway through the round.

0:22:160:22:17

Let's take a look at those scores as they stand.

0:22:170:22:20

30, Liz, once again, over there,

0:22:200:22:21

looking very strong, Liz and Julie. Lovely low-scoring there.

0:22:210:22:24

Then up to 49, where we find Dan and Andy,

0:22:240:22:26

and then Anne and Sarah

0:22:260:22:28

on 100 at the moment.

0:22:280:22:30

Sarah, I hope you've got a nice, low-scoring answer.

0:22:300:22:33

We might need it from you to keep you in the game.

0:22:330:22:35

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

0:22:350:22:37

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:22:370:22:40

-Now, Julie.

-Hi.

0:22:420:22:44

Julie, we are looking for husbands

0:22:440:22:45

or wives

0:22:450:22:47

of any of these people.

0:22:470:22:49

Well, I'm hoping I recognise her

0:22:500:22:52

and I'm going to say, John Lloyd.

0:22:520:22:55

John Lloyd, says Julie.

0:22:550:22:57

John Lloyd. You want to be scoring 69.

0:22:570:22:59

Here is your red line. Get below that, you're into the head-to-head.

0:22:590:23:02

How many people said, John Lloyd?

0:23:020:23:04

It's right.

0:23:050:23:07

Very well done indeed.

0:23:070:23:09

10 for John Lloyd. APPLAUSE

0:23:130:23:15

Another fabulous low score over there, taking your total up to 40.

0:23:150:23:19

Very good, Julie and Liz, aren't they?

0:23:190:23:21

-Very good.

-Really, really good. Yes, you did recognise her,

0:23:210:23:24

the lady in the middle row.

0:23:240:23:26

First one.

0:23:260:23:27

Married to John Lloyd,

0:23:270:23:29

if you know what I mean.

0:23:290:23:30

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

0:23:300:23:32

Say, literally, no more.

0:23:320:23:34

Sarah, you're the high-scorers,

0:23:340:23:36

so we need something low-scoring from you.

0:23:360:23:39

I don't know...

0:23:410:23:43

I think...

0:23:430:23:44

Is Kid Rock an acceptable answer

0:23:440:23:46

or does it have to be his actual name?

0:23:460:23:48

Kid Rock.

0:23:480:23:49

I think that sounds acceptable.

0:23:490:23:51

That's a...

0:23:510:23:52

It sounds good to me.

0:23:520:23:54

Richard's just made his sounds good to me face...

0:23:540:23:56

so I think it's good. Let's see.

0:23:560:23:58

Kid Rock, is that right?

0:23:580:23:59

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

0:23:590:24:01

but how many people said, Kid Rock? Is it right?

0:24:010:24:04

It's right.

0:24:050:24:07

APPLAUSE

0:24:130:24:15

Five.

0:24:150:24:16

That's exactly what we needed from you, Sarah.

0:24:160:24:19

Nice, low score. 105 is your total.

0:24:190:24:21

You could still be in the game.

0:24:210:24:22

Very good answer, Sarah. Well played.

0:24:220:24:24

Yeah, he was married to number six.

0:24:240:24:25

-Number six.

-Number six.

0:24:250:24:27

Kid Rock,

0:24:270:24:28

or Kid Rochester, to give him his official...

0:24:280:24:30

Well, Robert Ritchie is his real name.

0:24:300:24:33

-Bob Ritchie.

-Rob Ritchie.

-The Bobster.

0:24:330:24:36

The Bobster...Kid.

0:24:360:24:38

Andy.

0:24:380:24:39

Now, you're on 49.

0:24:390:24:41

The high-scorers on 105,

0:24:410:24:42

Sarah and Anne,

0:24:420:24:44

so 55 is your target.

0:24:440:24:45

OK. I know a couple, I think.

0:24:460:24:49

It's just whether I want to risk it or not.

0:24:510:24:53

I know Demi Moore

0:24:550:24:56

was married to Ashton Kutcher.

0:24:560:24:58

Angelina Jolie's got Billy Bob Thornton and Brad Pitt,

0:24:580:25:02

but I think I'm going to go...

0:25:020:25:04

Patsy Kensit -

0:25:040:25:06

I think that's her, anyway - and say Liam Gallagher.

0:25:060:25:10

Liam Gallagher.

0:25:100:25:11

I was thinking... That could have gone any one of seven or eight ways.

0:25:110:25:14

And you went...

0:25:140:25:16

So, you went Liam Gallagher.

0:25:160:25:17

OK, there we are. There's your red line.

0:25:170:25:19

Let's see how many of our 100 people said, Liam Gallagher.

0:25:190:25:22

It's right!

0:25:250:25:27

Well done. You're through.

0:25:270:25:28

21... APPLAUSE

0:25:300:25:32

..taking your total, very neatly, up to 70.

0:25:320:25:36

Yeah, her third husband. Well played, Andy.

0:25:360:25:38

Now, let's take a look.

0:25:380:25:40

-We can now exclusively...

-We can mention names now!

0:25:400:25:42

..reveal who some of these people are. That is Demi Moore.

0:25:420:25:44

Ashton Kutcher, we didn't have. 24 points for that.

0:25:440:25:47

Freddy Moore was a pointless answer for her.

0:25:470:25:50

-Next to her, it is Lisa Marie Presley...

-Lisa Marie Presley.

0:25:500:25:52

..who was married to some famous people.

0:25:520:25:54

Michael Jackson would have scored you 9. Nicolas Cage, 2.

0:25:540:25:57

Her other husbands were pointless.

0:25:570:25:59

I don't mean anything by that, they just were.

0:25:590:26:02

Martin Scorsese. Been married five times, Martin Scorsese.

0:26:020:26:05

Including to Isabella Rossellini.

0:26:050:26:07

All five of his partners were pointless answers,

0:26:070:26:09

so well done if you said any of them.

0:26:090:26:11

Next to him is a gentleman called...

0:26:110:26:13

-Will Smith.

-..Will Smith...

-Yeah.

0:26:130:26:15

..and Jada Pinkett would have scored you 25.

0:26:150:26:17

And Sheree Zampino

0:26:170:26:19

was a pointless answer,

0:26:190:26:20

married to Will Smith.

0:26:200:26:22

Chris Evert there, on the second row.

0:26:220:26:24

John Lloyd, we've already had,

0:26:240:26:26

Greg Norman would have scored you 5 points.

0:26:260:26:28

Andy Mill was a pointless answer.

0:26:280:26:29

There's Pamela Anderson.

0:26:290:26:31

Tommy Lee would have scored you 14.

0:26:310:26:32

Rick Salomon was a pointless answer.

0:26:320:26:34

Well done if you said him.

0:26:340:26:35

Angelina Jolie.

0:26:350:26:36

Brad Pitt, 55.

0:26:360:26:38

Billy Bob Thornton, 50.

0:26:380:26:39

Johnny Lee Miller, 9.

0:26:390:26:40

Then we have Britney Spears.

0:26:400:26:43

Kevin Federline, 13.

0:26:430:26:45

Jason Alexander, 2.

0:26:450:26:46

Patsy Kensit, there.

0:26:460:26:48

The ones we haven't heard, Jim Kerr would have scored you 10

0:26:480:26:51

and pointless answers for Dan Donovan and Jeremy Healy.

0:26:510:26:53

Well done if you said either of those.

0:26:530:26:55

Then it's James Cameron, he's been married five times as well.

0:26:550:26:58

-What is it with these guys?

-Really?

0:26:580:27:00

Kathryn Bigelow would have scored you 2 points, Linda Hamilton 1

0:27:000:27:02

and nothing for the other three.

0:27:020:27:04

Chris Evans, we've had Billy Piper,

0:27:040:27:05

Carol McGiffin would have scored you 2 -

0:27:050:27:07

and Natasha, his current wife, was a pointless answer.

0:27:070:27:10

Well done if you said that.

0:27:100:27:11

And Uma Thurman.

0:27:110:27:13

Ethan Hawke would have scored you 6

0:27:130:27:14

and Gary Oldman would have scored you 2.

0:27:140:27:17

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:27:170:27:19

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

0:27:190:27:22

Sarah and Anne,

0:27:220:27:23

this is how it's going to end in your sermon, I'm afraid.

0:27:230:27:26

Round Two and...

0:27:260:27:27

-How to deal with failure.

-No.

0:27:270:27:30

But not really, you can take away your brilliant low-scoring.

0:27:300:27:33

We've had some lovely low-scoring from you.

0:27:330:27:35

And the lowest score in last round so, yes, carry that away with you.

0:27:350:27:38

I'm sorry we have to say goodbye to you,

0:27:380:27:39

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

0:27:390:27:41

-Thank you so much. Sarah and Anne.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:27:410:27:44

APPLAUSE

0:27:440:27:45

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

0:27:450:27:48

APPLAUSE

0:27:480:27:53

Very, very well done.

0:27:530:27:54

Liz, Julie, Dan and Andy,

0:27:540:27:56

you're now one step closer to the final

0:27:560:27:58

and a chance to play for that jackpot,

0:27:580:27:59

which currently stands at....

0:27:590:28:01

APPLAUSE

0:28:030:28:08

Well, we've reached the, sort of, safe point, I think.

0:28:080:28:10

I always think, when you get to the head-to-head,

0:28:100:28:12

from here on in you can play as a team.

0:28:120:28:14

You can chat before you give your answer.

0:28:140:28:16

You can pool your knowledge, which is very nice.

0:28:160:28:18

So, in this round, as you know, the first pair to win two questions

0:28:180:28:21

will be playing for that jackpot. Best of luck to both of you.

0:28:210:28:23

Let's play it. APPLAUSE

0:28:230:28:28

OK. Here comes your first question

0:28:290:28:31

and it concerns...

0:28:310:28:33

-Chips.

-It's about time, isn't it?

0:28:360:28:37

Yeah, we're going to show you five clues, now, to facts about chips.

0:28:370:28:41

Facts about chips.

0:28:410:28:42

Can you give us the most obscure answer?

0:28:420:28:45

I just wonder, which of so many facts about chips we've gone for.

0:28:450:28:49

-We'll find out, won't we?

-To narrow it down to five.

0:28:490:28:51

-Amazing, isn't it?

-OK, let's reveal our five clues to chips.

0:28:510:28:54

Here they are.

0:28:540:28:56

I'll read those all one last time.

0:29:140:29:16

Liz and Julie, you are our low scorers so you will go first.

0:29:330:29:36

Well, at the risk of being wrong,

0:29:380:29:39

I think the author of the 1934 novella is James Hilton.

0:29:390:29:44

James Hilton, say Liz and Julie.

0:29:440:29:46

Now, Dan and Andy, it's over to you.

0:29:460:29:49

Talk us through that board.

0:29:490:29:51

The top one is Only Fools And Horses...

0:29:510:29:54

..and the bottom one is Catchphrase...

0:29:550:29:57

..and I don't know the other two.

0:29:580:30:01

I think we're going to go with Only Fools And Horses.

0:30:010:30:03

Only Fools And Horses, the top one.

0:30:030:30:05

OK, Rock And Chips.

0:30:050:30:07

So, Liz and Julie said James Hilton was the author of Goodbye Mr Chips.

0:30:070:30:10

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

0:30:100:30:14

It's right.

0:30:140:30:15

Very well done! APPLAUSE

0:30:210:30:24

James Hilton, scoring you 7 there.

0:30:240:30:27

You just haven't put a foot wrong,

0:30:270:30:28

Liz and Julie, this whole show.

0:30:280:30:30

Now, Dan and Andy, meanwhile,

0:30:300:30:32

have gone for Rock And Chips as the prequel to Only Fools And Horses.

0:30:320:30:36

Let's see how many people agree with that.

0:30:360:30:38

It's right.

0:30:410:30:42

42. APPLAUSE

0:30:450:30:48

42. Not a bad answer,

0:30:480:30:50

but James Hilton, a superb answer.

0:30:500:30:51

Liz and Julie, well done. After one question, you're up 1-0.

0:30:510:30:54

Yeah, James Hilton, best answer on the board.

0:30:540:30:56

Very, very well played.

0:30:560:30:58

Now, this is absolutely in our...

0:30:580:31:01

our childhoods. When oven chips were launched.

0:31:010:31:03

-It's got to be the '70s.

-What decade do you think?

0:31:030:31:05

Yeah, it was 1979 they were introduced.

0:31:050:31:08

1979. So '70s is the answer.

0:31:080:31:09

17 points. The singer.

0:31:090:31:12

-Lovely Kirsty MacColl.

-Kirsty MacColl.

0:31:120:31:14

Of course it is.

0:31:140:31:15

24 points for that.

0:31:150:31:16

And Catchphrase, of course, at the bottom.

0:31:160:31:19

What's Mr Chips doing?

0:31:190:31:21

And that would have scored you

0:31:210:31:23

55 points. Big scorer.

0:31:230:31:25

There we are. Thank you very much indeed.

0:31:250:31:27

That was our chips question.

0:31:270:31:29

That was fun. Now, Dan and Andy, here comes our second question.

0:31:290:31:32

You have to win this one to stay in the game.

0:31:320:31:34

You get to answer it first, though, so it's slightly in your favour.

0:31:340:31:37

And it is all about, our second question...

0:31:370:31:39

National Portrait Gallery Portraits Of Characters In Wolf Hall, Richard.

0:31:440:31:48

Yeah, we're going to show you five portraits, now,

0:31:480:31:50

from the National Portrait Gallery.

0:31:500:31:52

They're all characters who are in Wolf Hall.

0:31:520:31:54

-Can you identify them, please?

-Now, this is fun.

0:31:540:31:56

OK, let's reveal our five portraits

0:31:560:31:57

and here they are.

0:31:570:31:59

There we are.

0:32:210:32:23

Five portraits from the National Portrait Gallery,

0:32:230:32:27

of characters from the novel Wolf Hall.

0:32:270:32:29

Dan and Andy, you will go first.

0:32:290:32:31

OK, so we'll go for D, which is Thomas Cranmer.

0:32:400:32:43

Thomas Cranmer, say Dan and Andy.

0:32:430:32:45

Thomas Cranmer.

0:32:450:32:47

Now, Liz and Julie,

0:32:470:32:48

that board is all yours.

0:32:480:32:50

Talk us through it.

0:32:500:32:52

Oh, goodness.

0:32:520:32:53

We think A is Anne Boleyn.

0:32:530:32:55

C is Henry VIII.

0:32:570:33:00

E...? Catherine...

0:33:000:33:02

-..of Aragon, is it?

-What about B?

0:33:030:33:05

-B. What do you think?

-Cardinal Wolsey.

0:33:050:33:08

Not sure. Shall we play it safe?

0:33:080:33:09

-Go for the one that you're sure of.

-Yeah.

0:33:090:33:11

-E, Catherine of Aragon.

-Catherine of Aragon.

0:33:110:33:13

So, we have...

0:33:130:33:15

Thomas Cranmer and Catherine of Aragon.

0:33:150:33:17

Now, Dan and Andy are saying that D is Thomas Cranmer.

0:33:170:33:20

Let's see if that's right.

0:33:200:33:22

Let's see how many people said it.

0:33:220:33:24

No, I'm sorry.

0:33:250:33:26

That's an incorrect answer

0:33:280:33:30

which means, Liz and Julie,

0:33:300:33:31

you merely have to be correct with your answer

0:33:310:33:34

of Catherine of Aragon, for E,

0:33:340:33:35

to win this point and to go through to the final.

0:33:350:33:38

Let's see if you're right.

0:33:380:33:40

18! APPLAUSE

0:33:490:33:53

But, most importantly, it's correct.

0:33:530:33:54

and it means, Liz and Julie, after only two questions,

0:33:540:33:57

you're straight through to the final 2-0.

0:33:570:33:59

Yeah, very well played.

0:33:590:34:00

Yeah, Cranmer was the Archbishop of Canterbury.

0:34:000:34:02

-That is Thomas Cromwell...

-Oh!

-Yes!

-..I'm afraid.

0:34:020:34:05

Would have scored you 11 points as well.

0:34:050:34:06

Would have won you the point.

0:34:060:34:09

Well done, at home, if you said that.

0:34:090:34:10

A, you're quite right, is Anne Boleyn.

0:34:100:34:13

I like the way she's throwing us there by wearing B.

0:34:130:34:16

I mean... LAUGHTER

0:34:160:34:18

So, I thought it was Barbara.

0:34:180:34:20

44 points for that.

0:34:200:34:22

B is the best answer on the board.

0:34:220:34:24

Thomas More.

0:34:240:34:25

It is Thomas More, yeah.

0:34:250:34:26

Would have scored you 8 points.

0:34:260:34:28

And C is, unmistakably, Damian Lewis.

0:34:280:34:31

Henry VIII, with 87 points.

0:34:350:34:37

There we are. Thank you very much indeed.

0:34:370:34:39

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

0:34:390:34:41

is Dan and Andy. Well, it's good news, really,

0:34:410:34:43

because it means we get to see you again next time.

0:34:430:34:46

Had you gone straight to the final, that would have been it.

0:34:460:34:48

I'm sure you'll do just as well, if not better then.

0:34:480:34:51

We'll look forward to that very much.

0:34:510:34:52

Meantime, thanks very much, Dan and Andy.

0:34:520:34:54

-APPLAUSE

-Good luck.

-Good luck in the final.

0:34:540:34:57

But, for Liz and Julie, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:570:35:00

APPLAUSE

0:35:000:35:04

Well, what about that?

0:35:040:35:05

Liz and Julie, you have seen off all the competition

0:35:050:35:09

and you have gone right ahead and won our Pointless trophy.

0:35:090:35:11

So, very well done.

0:35:110:35:13

-Very excited.

-Good.

0:35:190:35:20

Not nearly as excited as I am

0:35:200:35:22

because you now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:35:220:35:25

At the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £2,250.

0:35:250:35:28

APPLAUSE

0:35:280:35:32

You've been our low scorers every single round.

0:35:320:35:35

2-0 in the head-to-head.

0:35:350:35:37

I mean, there's no arguing with that kind of impetus.

0:35:370:35:39

You're on course, surely, to take that jackpot home.

0:35:390:35:42

What would you like to see come up on the board?

0:35:420:35:45

Well... English literature,

0:35:450:35:46

but it's already been, so...

0:35:460:35:48

-Well, could come back.

-Anagrams.

0:35:480:35:50

-Words.

-Oh, no.

0:35:500:35:51

Not anagrams.

0:35:510:35:52

-OK, NOT anagrams.

-LAUGHTER

0:35:520:35:56

Oh, I don't know. Woody Allen films.

0:35:560:35:58

OK. Fingers crossed.

0:35:580:36:00

Let's hope there's something you like up here.

0:36:000:36:02

Today's selection reads like this.

0:36:020:36:04

We've got...

0:36:040:36:05

I'd be inclined to do the bottom one, but what do you think?

0:36:120:36:15

-What do you think?

-I don't know any. It has to... It'll be down to you.

0:36:150:36:18

-Oh, well in that case...

-I've not a scooby.

0:36:180:36:20

What do you think? What about winter?

0:36:200:36:23

That's more general, isn't it?

0:36:230:36:25

-Try winter.

-All right, we'll try winter.

0:36:250:36:27

You're going to go for winter.

0:36:270:36:29

-Yes.

-All right. Good luck. Richard.

0:36:290:36:30

OK, we're looking for any of the following three things.

0:36:300:36:33

We are looking for...

0:36:330:36:34

Anyone credited with a voice performance in Frozen, please,

0:36:340:36:37

according to IMDB.

0:36:370:36:38

The English-language version of that.

0:36:380:36:40

We are looking for any country

0:36:400:36:42

that's ever won an Winter Olympic medal

0:36:420:36:44

since 1924,

0:36:440:36:45

or we are looking for any named characters

0:36:450:36:48

in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.

0:36:480:36:51

Very, very best of luck.

0:36:510:36:53

Thank you very much indeed.

0:36:530:36:54

OK, now, as always, you've got up to one minute

0:36:540:36:56

to come up with three answers.

0:36:560:36:57

All you need to win that jackpot, Liz and Julie,

0:36:570:36:59

is for just one of your answers to the pointless.

0:36:590:37:02

Are you ready?

0:37:020:37:03

-Yes.

-OK.

0:37:030:37:05

Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock. There they are.

0:37:050:37:07

Your time starts now.

0:37:070:37:09

Winter Olympics.

0:37:090:37:10

There was that film that was made, wasn't there?

0:37:100:37:13

What was it? Oh, the bobsleigh!

0:37:130:37:14

-Yeah!

-Jamaica.

-Where was it, Jamaica?

0:37:140:37:17

-Was it?

-Yeah, but did they win?

0:37:170:37:19

Oh. Don't know.

0:37:190:37:20

What about Winter's Tale?

0:37:200:37:22

I think Perdita.

0:37:220:37:23

I think there's a character called Perdita.

0:37:230:37:25

Yep, OK.

0:37:250:37:27

What about Frozen? Come on, you've watched it enough.

0:37:270:37:30

-No, I haven't.

-Not you personally, you with your granddaughter.

0:37:300:37:33

-I've never seen it.

-She's not here.

0:37:330:37:34

Winter Olympics...

0:37:340:37:36

I would have thought Norway.

0:37:360:37:37

OK, we'll play for Norway, it's quite...

0:37:370:37:39

-Yeah.

-Try Norway?

0:37:390:37:41

-You...

-Oh, hang on, we don't want to do it yet.

0:37:410:37:43

-We want to think about it for a few seconds.

-OK.

0:37:430:37:46

-And Perdita in Winter's Tale?

-Oh.

0:37:460:37:48

Someone is pursued by a bear, but I don't know...

0:37:480:37:50

What about another Winter Olympics one?

0:37:500:37:54

Oh, well, you could say Jamaica.

0:37:540:37:56

There, we'll try that. Shall we try that?

0:37:560:37:58

Jamaica, Perdita and Norway.

0:37:580:37:59

Yeah.

0:37:590:38:01

-OK.

-OK.

0:38:010:38:02

-You sure you're happy?

-Not really.

0:38:020:38:04

No.

0:38:040:38:05

-There we go.

-OK. Well, your time is now up.

0:38:050:38:08

Let's have your three answers, and if you could say

0:38:080:38:10

-which category you are answering in, that would be great.

-All right.

0:38:100:38:13

Well, Winter Olympic medal-winning countries could be...

0:38:130:38:16

Norway and Jamaica.

0:38:160:38:17

Norway and Jamaica. OK, we've got those two.

0:38:170:38:19

Yeah. And the character,

0:38:190:38:21

I know someone exited, pursued by a bear

0:38:210:38:23

but I don't know who it was,

0:38:230:38:25

-but I think Perdita.

-Perdita.

0:38:250:38:27

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

0:38:270:38:29

-Jamaica.

-Jamaica.

0:38:290:38:31

-Let's go for Jamaica.

-Jamaica.

-OK, we'll put Jamaica last.

0:38:310:38:33

OK, Jamaica goes last. Least likely to be pointless?

0:38:330:38:36

The other one, Norway. OK, Norway, Perdita, Jamaica.

0:38:360:38:39

OK, well, let's put this answers up on the board in that order then,

0:38:390:38:42

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

0:38:420:38:44

Well, very, very best of luck.

0:38:470:38:49

Three answers on the board, there.

0:38:490:38:51

One of those could easily be pointless

0:38:510:38:53

and could win you that jackpot of £2,250.

0:38:530:38:55

That would be a nice, tidy sum to take back to Brighton.

0:38:550:38:57

Would you do with that, Liz?

0:38:570:38:59

Well, I'd like to say I'd treat everyone to a holiday,

0:38:590:39:01

but I'd probably get the damp done in my house.

0:39:010:39:04

Well, that'd be like a holiday...

0:39:040:39:06

-in its way!

-It would.

-Yeah.

0:39:060:39:08

-Yes.

-Julie?

0:39:080:39:09

I shall probably treat the family to a nice meal out.

0:39:090:39:12

-We've got a nice restaurant in Brighton, so...

-Lovely.

0:39:120:39:15

Well, very best of luck.

0:39:150:39:16

Your first answer was Norway.

0:39:160:39:18

In this case, we were looking for medal-winning countries

0:39:180:39:21

at the Winter Olympics. Let's find out if Norway's right.

0:39:210:39:23

Let's find out how many people said it.

0:39:230:39:25

If it's pointless, it wins you £2,250.

0:39:250:39:27

It's right.

0:39:300:39:31

Now, all we want is for Norway to go all the way down to zero

0:39:320:39:35

and you will leave here with £2,250.

0:39:350:39:37

It's going down through the 30s,

0:39:370:39:39

down through the... 26. OK

0:39:390:39:41

26. APPLAUSE

0:39:410:39:44

That's not a bad score

0:39:440:39:45

but, sadly, it's not a pointless answer.

0:39:450:39:48

So, we have to move on to your next answer, which was Perdita.

0:39:480:39:51

In this case, we are looking for characters from The Winter's Tale.

0:39:510:39:54

If it's right,

0:39:540:39:55

and if it's pointless, it will win you £2,250.

0:39:550:39:59

How many people said, Perdita?

0:39:590:40:00

-It is right.

-Well done.

0:40:030:40:05

Well, your first answer, Norway, took us all the way down to 26.

0:40:050:40:08

Perdita...

0:40:080:40:10

taking us down... Passes 26.

0:40:100:40:11

Down to the teens, into single figures.

0:40:110:40:13

Yes, into single... Down it goes, still going down.

0:40:130:40:15

Oh, 2! 2!

0:40:150:40:17

That's a great answer. APPLAUSE

0:40:170:40:19

Look at that.

0:40:190:40:20

-Oh, dear.

-Now that's more like it.

0:40:230:40:25

We're moving into absolutely the right...

0:40:250:40:27

The right sort of territory there with Perdita.

0:40:270:40:29

One more shot at today's jackpot,

0:40:290:40:31

you have gone for Jamaica.

0:40:310:40:33

In this case, we were looking for

0:40:330:40:35

countries that have won medals at the Winter Olympics.

0:40:350:40:38

If this is right and if this is pointless,

0:40:380:40:41

it wins you £2,250.

0:40:410:40:42

How many people said Jamaica?

0:40:420:40:44

Oh, no! Bad luck.

0:40:470:40:50

Oh, I'm sorry!

0:40:500:40:51

APPLAUSE

0:40:510:40:55

Well, two very good answers there.

0:40:560:40:58

Perdita, taking us just within touching distance of that jackpot.

0:40:580:41:01

I'm afraid you just didn't manage to find

0:41:010:41:03

that pointless answer you needed.

0:41:030:41:05

So, I'm afraid you don't win today's jackpot of £2,250...

0:41:050:41:08

That will rollover on to the next show.

0:41:080:41:10

..but you have been brilliant today.

0:41:100:41:12

-Well, we've had a lovely time.

-Had a super day.

-Lovely time.

0:41:120:41:15

Well, it's been lovely to have you here,

0:41:150:41:16

-and you get to take home a Pointless trophy.

-Oh, yes.

-Very excited.

0:41:160:41:19

Very well done, Liz and Julie. APPLAUSE

0:41:190:41:25

Yeah, that Jamaican team famously didn't finish at all. I suspect...

0:41:270:41:30

-Oh, dear.

-I suspect if they won, they would have scored 100 anyway.

0:41:300:41:33

But let's start with the cast of Frozen, though.

0:41:330:41:36

Everyone apart from Idina Menzel,

0:41:430:41:45

Kristen Bell, Josh Gad,

0:41:450:41:46

Jennifer Lee and Jonathan Groff.

0:41:460:41:48

Everyone else was a pointless answer,

0:41:480:41:50

so well done if you said anyone else from Frozen.

0:41:500:41:53

Let's take a look at those Winter Olympic medal-winning countries.

0:41:530:41:56

All of these are pointless.

0:41:560:41:57

You could have had Czech Republic, Czechoslovakia,

0:42:000:42:02

Estonia, Kazakhstan,

0:42:020:42:04

Liechtenstein, Luxembourg,

0:42:040:42:05

North Korea, Romania, Slovakia,

0:42:050:42:07

West Germany and Yugoslavia.

0:42:070:42:09

All of those were pointless answers. Well done if you said any of those.

0:42:090:42:12

And the characters in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.

0:42:120:42:15

Antigonus is the one who was, Exited, pursued by a bear.

0:42:150:42:18

Autolycus or... Auto-licious would be a good name for a rapper,

0:42:200:42:23

-wouldn't it?

-Auto-licious.

0:42:230:42:24

Mmm, Auto-licious.

0:42:240:42:26

Florizel and Polixenes,

0:42:260:42:28

also a pointless answer.

0:42:280:42:30

Everyone is pointless apart

0:42:300:42:31

from Perdita, Leontes, Hermione,

0:42:310:42:33

Amelia and Dionne.

0:42:330:42:34

Very well done at home if you got a pointless answer.

0:42:340:42:37

And please take our trophy and our regards

0:42:370:42:39

back to beautiful city of Brighton and Hove.

0:42:390:42:41

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you very much.

-Thanks very much.

0:42:410:42:44

Well, unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to you, Liz and Julie,

0:42:440:42:47

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

-We had a lovely time!

0:42:470:42:50

Thank you. It's been lovely having you here. Liz and Julie.

0:42:500:42:52

Wonderful contestants. APPLAUSE

0:42:520:42:54

Well, sadly, Liz and Julie didn't win our jackpot today,

0:42:540:42:56

which means it rolls over onto the next show,

0:42:560:42:58

when we will be playing for £3,250.

0:42:580:43:01

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:43:010:43:03

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard...

-Goodbye.

0:43:030:43:05

..and it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:050:43:07

APPLAUSE

0:43:070:43:11

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