APPLAUSE

0:00:150:00:17

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:210:00:22

Hello, I am Alexander Armstrong and a very warm welcome to Pointless,

0:00:220:00:25

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

0:00:250:00:28

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:29

APPLAUSE

0:00:290:00:33

And couple number one.

0:00:330:00:34

Hello, I'm Haroon. This is my wife Sara, and we're from Enfield in North London.

0:00:340:00:38

Couple number two?

0:00:380:00:39

Hi, I'm Georgie, I'm from Stockport. This is my Auntie Claire and she's from Gloucester.

0:00:390:00:43

Couple number three?

0:00:430:00:44

Hi, I'm Claire, this is my friend Angharad, and we're from West Wales.

0:00:440:00:48

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:480:00:49

Hi, I'm Liam. This is my team-mate Andy and we're from Guildford.

0:00:490:00:53

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:530:00:55

APPLAUSE

0:00:550:00:56

Thanks very much to all of you, we will find out more about you

0:00:560:00:59

throughout the show as it goes along.

0:00:590:01:01

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

0:01:010:01:03

Scream if you want to go cleverer. It's my Pointless friend - it's Richard.

0:01:030:01:07

Hiya.

0:01:070:01:08

Hi, everybody.

0:01:080:01:09

APPLAUSE

0:01:090:01:11

-Good afternoon.

-And to you.

0:01:110:01:12

-How are you?

-I'm very well, thank you.

0:01:120:01:14

Excellent. Only one returning pair today - that's Claire and Georgie.

0:01:140:01:17

And we only saw them for one round last time, as well.

0:01:170:01:20

Podium four - we're getting more and more of this, aren't we?

0:01:200:01:22

-We're getting more and more beards on the show.

-Yes.

-Hipster beards.

0:01:220:01:26

-Yeah.

-And it's quite hipster on podium four, isn't it? It could go either way.

0:01:260:01:29

It could go either way, couldn't it?

0:01:290:01:31

We've got a classic, old-school, Pointless round to start everyone off with.

0:01:310:01:34

Old-school Pointless.

0:01:340:01:36

What everyone signed up for. Now, Vicki and Steve won the jackpot last time.

0:01:360:01:40

Isn't that exciting? So, today's jackpot starts off back at £1,000.

0:01:400:01:45

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

0:01:450:01:48

APPLAUSE

0:01:480:01:50

So, I don't need to remind you of this but the pair with

0:01:530:01:56

the highest score at the end of each round will be eliminated.

0:01:560:01:58

There we are, I've said it. Our first category today is...

0:01:580:02:02

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

0:02:050:02:08

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

0:02:080:02:12

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:140:02:17

Bordered Countries, Richard.

0:02:200:02:21

Yes, in a moment Xander's going to show you the names of five countries.

0:02:210:02:24

We're looking for any country in the world that shares a border with any of these five.

0:02:240:02:28

Please, as always by country, we mean a sovereign state that's a member of the UN in its own right.

0:02:280:02:32

OK, so as Richard just mentioned, we're going to put five countries up.

0:02:320:02:35

They will stay on the board for the whole round.

0:02:350:02:37

We won't be changing them halfway through.

0:02:370:02:40

We just need the name of any country that shares a border with one of these five countries.

0:02:400:02:44

And we've got...

0:02:440:02:45

-Haroon, welcome to Pointless.

-Thank you very much.

0:02:540:02:57

Is this a warm welcome with these countries behind me?

0:02:570:02:59

It could be warmer.

0:02:590:03:00

OK, it could be warmer. I'm sorry about that.

0:03:000:03:02

But Haroon, lovely to have you here all the same. What do you do, Haroon?

0:03:020:03:05

I'm a solicitor.

0:03:050:03:07

-In Enfield?

-In Enfield, yes.

-In Enfield.

0:03:070:03:09

And what are your interests aside from being a solicitor?

0:03:090:03:12

I enjoy sports. I'm a big cricket fan. I also enjoy reading.

0:03:120:03:17

OK, now, how are you feeling about geography, generally?

0:03:170:03:21

Not too bad, but then not too great. I'll give it a crack.

0:03:210:03:25

For Belgium I will say...

0:03:250:03:29

-France.

-France, says Haroon.

0:03:290:03:32

OK, let's see how many of our 100 people said France.

0:03:320:03:35

67 for France. APPLAUSE

0:03:400:03:43

Not bad.

0:03:430:03:45

That's what we call a risky start, Haroon.

0:03:450:03:47

LAUGHTER

0:03:470:03:49

It's just, if you think of Belgium you have France just underneath it.

0:03:490:03:52

But huge debates - they need a solicitor over in France about the French and the Belgians,

0:03:520:03:56

who invented French fries, even to this day.

0:03:560:03:58

-Yeah.

-The Belgians claim it. The French are having none of it.

0:03:580:04:02

Alliteration on France's side there.

0:04:020:04:04

Yes, well, Belgian bun, of course. The French say they invent it, so...

0:04:040:04:09

-you know, works both ways, doesn't it?

-There we go.

0:04:090:04:11

-Thanks very much, Richard. Georgie, welcome back.

-Hi.

0:04:110:04:14

Now, it was Round One last time we had to say goodbye to you,

0:04:140:04:16

which was far too soon.

0:04:160:04:18

We had a very tricky board about people with middle initials.

0:04:180:04:21

-Yeah, it was very hard.

-Remind us what you do, Georgie.

0:04:210:04:25

I am a policing and criminal investigation student.

0:04:250:04:28

-In your final year?

-Yes.

-And where are you doing that?

0:04:280:04:30

At Uclan in Preston.

0:04:300:04:32

Right you are. Are most of the people who teach you serving police officers?

0:04:320:04:36

-Yeah, or have just retired.

-Or just retired.

0:04:360:04:38

So yeah, plenty of experience.

0:04:380:04:40

That's exciting. See, you're getting everything hot off the police press.

0:04:400:04:43

-Yeah, basically, yeah.

-Very good indeed.

0:04:430:04:45

And, when you finish do you know where you will be going or...?

0:04:450:04:48

I'm looking to do a Masters but it just sort of...

0:04:480:04:51

-I'm just putting off getting a job, really.

-Very good.

0:04:510:04:54

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

0:04:540:04:58

-I'm just going to say Germany.

-Germany, says Georgie.

0:04:580:05:01

Germany. Let's see if Germany is right,

0:05:010:05:03

let's see how many people said it.

0:05:030:05:05

It is right.

0:05:070:05:08

Well, it beats France.

0:05:100:05:12

APPLAUSE

0:05:120:05:13

As it sometimes does.

0:05:130:05:15

44.

0:05:150:05:16

Yeah, so far, this is like an episode of Pointless Celebrities, isn't it?

0:05:160:05:19

Those would be the first two answers we'd get. It is interesting though,

0:05:190:05:22

cos once the obvious ones have gone, you are then forced to actually think about it,

0:05:220:05:26

which sometimes is where the better answers go for.

0:05:260:05:28

I think by and large people know more than they think.

0:05:280:05:31

-Yes. Quite right.

-Well, we shall find out.

0:05:310:05:33

Now then, Angharad, welcome to Pointless.

0:05:330:05:35

-What do you do, Angharad?

-I am a research consultant.

0:05:350:05:39

-In what sort of capacity? What are you researching?

-Social policy.

0:05:390:05:43

Yeah. One of those jobs that people don't really know exist.

0:05:430:05:46

Right, I see, and what do you like to get up to when you're not doing that, Angharad?

0:05:460:05:50

-I love to run.

-What sort of distances do you run?

0:05:500:05:54

Oh, I'm building it up, I like 10Ks and half marathons at the moment.

0:05:540:05:58

Trying to challenge myself a bit more.

0:05:580:06:00

10Ks and half marathons. You enter lots of 10Ks and half marathons?

0:06:000:06:04

-Yeah, I try as much... You know, as often as I can.

-How many a year do you do?

0:06:040:06:08

Oh, maybe four or five.

0:06:080:06:10

That's terrifying.

0:06:100:06:12

But you're building up towards the full marathon, do you think?

0:06:120:06:14

Yeah, I need some motivation,

0:06:140:06:16

so I need to keep having something to train for.

0:06:160:06:18

OK, very good. Now, Angharad,

0:06:180:06:20

what would you like to go for on this board?

0:06:200:06:24

Right. I'm just going to say Uruguay.

0:06:240:06:28

-Uruguay?

-Yes.

-Uruguay - let's see if that's right,

0:06:280:06:30

let's see if that's going to pay off for Angharad.

0:06:300:06:33

It's right.

0:06:350:06:36

Well, you passed both of our existing scores.

0:06:390:06:42

Uruguay gets you seven.

0:06:420:06:43

Very well done, indeed.

0:06:430:06:45

APPLAUSE

0:06:450:06:47

It borders Brazil, of course. A very good answer. It was named country of the year in 2013 by The Economist.

0:06:500:06:54

-Country of the year.

-Country of the year. That's not bad. It's got a president who lives in a cottage

0:06:540:06:59

-and drives himself to work in a VW Beetle.

-That's nice.

-Flies economy class.

0:06:590:07:02

-That's nice.

-That's nice, isn't it?

0:07:020:07:04

I wonder who is hosting country of the year awards.

0:07:040:07:07

Well, I know who's hosting it next year. Uruguay.

0:07:070:07:10

-If you win it, that's where they host it.

-That's where they host it?

-Yeah.

0:07:100:07:13

Anyway, thank you very much indeed. Now, Andy, welcome.

0:07:130:07:16

Great to have you here from Guildford. What do you do, Andy?

0:07:160:07:19

Struggling musician, sort of thing.

0:07:190:07:22

I play in a band called Red Kites and I also teach drums and guitar.

0:07:220:07:29

-What do you play in Red Kites?

-I'm the drummer.

0:07:290:07:31

You are the drummer in Red Kites? But also, if you're teaching guitar

0:07:310:07:34

your guitar playing must be quite something.

0:07:340:07:36

-Well, I think you just have to stay one step ahead of the student.

-Oh.

0:07:360:07:40

That's the trick, is it?

0:07:400:07:42

So, how many guitarists do you have in the band?

0:07:420:07:44

Obviously there's a bass guitarist.

0:07:440:07:46

We've got a bass guitarist, we've got Liam, who is the lead guitarist,

0:07:460:07:49

and we have got rhythm guitar.

0:07:490:07:50

Does the rhythm guitarist ever sort of feel you breathing down his neck at all?

0:07:500:07:53

While you from the drums, you're telling him which inversions of chords to play?

0:07:530:07:57

Not... No, that's far too... Like I said, one step ahead of the student.

0:07:570:08:01

Red Kite - what kind of music's that?

0:08:010:08:04

-Well, the description is emotive, folk rock.

-Wow.

-Indie rock.

0:08:040:08:09

Very good indeed. OK, so now, Andy, what would you like to go for?

0:08:090:08:14

It's a very small country in Europe, and I'm not sure how many

0:08:140:08:18

countries it actually borders, so it could be wrong.

0:08:180:08:21

But I think it is in that kind of range, so I'm going to go for Andorra.

0:08:210:08:25

Andorra. Andorra - let's see if it's right.

0:08:250:08:28

Oh, no, Andy!

0:08:310:08:33

I'm so sorry. I salute the risk you took,

0:08:330:08:37

but I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer - scores 100 points.

0:08:370:08:39

Sorry, Andy. It is tucked in between France and Spain, Andorra.

0:08:390:08:43

So if you're booked to do a gig in Andorra, do not get the ferry to Ostend.

0:08:430:08:46

That's my advice.

0:08:460:08:47

Thanks very much. We're halfway through the round. Let's take a look at those scores.

0:08:470:08:51

Seven, Angharad, very well done indeed - best score of the pass.

0:08:510:08:54

Then we leap quite a way

0:08:540:08:56

up to 44, where we find Georgie and Claire. 67, Haroon and Sara.

0:08:560:09:01

And then up to 100 I'm afraid,

0:09:010:09:02

Andy and Liam. And now Liam, who knows?

0:09:020:09:06

It could be a tough group of countries, that.

0:09:060:09:08

There might be another incorrect answer.

0:09:080:09:10

As long as it's not from you, we might be in with a chance of seeing you in Round Two.

0:09:100:09:14

Good luck with that. We're going to come back down the line.

0:09:140:09:16

Can the second players step up to the podium?

0:09:160:09:19

So, then, Liam. Liam, first, what happened to your foot?

0:09:210:09:24

Um, when we got the call saying that we were on Pointless,

0:09:240:09:28

I also got a call from Andy saying we're going on a night out

0:09:280:09:31

to celebrate the fact that we were on Pointless.

0:09:310:09:34

That night ended with this, quite a bit of enthusiasm falling off a kerb.

0:09:340:09:40

-No, so Pointless carries the can for that?

-Pretty much.

0:09:400:09:44

-You falling off a kerb, Liam?

-Falling off a kerb.

-How much celebrating did you do?

0:09:440:09:48

-I can't remember, to be honest.

-OK, that answers my question.

0:09:480:09:51

The night sort of...

0:09:510:09:53

Oh, Liam, so you're the lead guitarist.

0:09:530:09:55

-Yeah.

-Who put the band together?

0:09:550:09:58

We sort of all met at this music college and it's a joint sort of...

0:09:580:10:02

-We all wanted to be in a band.

-Oh, I see. And how long has Red Kite been going?

0:10:020:10:05

-Four years? Coming up to five.

-That's good.

0:10:050:10:07

If anyone wants to see you, though, Red Kite, where do you play, generally?

0:10:070:10:11

-All around. We've got a gig in Reading.

-There we are.

0:10:110:10:14

-From Reading, come down.

-There we are.

0:10:140:10:16

Well, listen, don't get too near the edge of the kerb is all I'm saying.

0:10:160:10:19

Now, you're the high scorers, Liam. We need an ingenious answer from you.

0:10:190:10:23

Yeah, right, um, I'm going to go with Argentina.

0:10:240:10:30

Argentina, says Liam.

0:10:300:10:32

You are getting a gentle nod from Claire there. Let's see how many

0:10:320:10:35

people said Argentina. No red line for you as you're the high scorers.

0:10:350:10:39

Yes!

0:10:410:10:42

It's right.

0:10:420:10:44

39 for Argentina.

0:10:450:10:47

APPLAUSE

0:10:470:10:49

Takes your total up to 139.

0:10:490:10:51

Given yourself a chance there, Liam. Yeah, borders Brazil.

0:10:510:10:54

-Once had five presidents in ten days, Argentina.

-Wow.

0:10:540:10:58

-I know. We did that at Fulham very briefly with managers, as well.

-Yeah.

0:10:580:11:02

Thanks very much indeed, Richard. Now, Claire.

0:11:020:11:05

A warm welcome to Pointless.

0:11:050:11:06

-Didn't Angharad do well?

-She did very well.

0:11:060:11:09

She's done so well, in fact,

0:11:090:11:10

it doesn't actually matter what you score. I mean, obviously, it does matter - it matters to all of us

0:11:100:11:14

what you score - but in terms of getting through to Round Two, you could,

0:11:140:11:17

not that you would, score 100 points.

0:11:170:11:20

Claire, what do you do?

0:11:200:11:21

I also work with Angharad and

0:11:210:11:23

I'm also working in research and evaluation consultancy.

0:11:230:11:27

Now, so which of you was there first?

0:11:270:11:30

-Angharad.

-I see, and when did you join?

0:11:300:11:33

About a year and a half ago.

0:11:330:11:35

And has Angharad been kind? Has she shown you the ropes?

0:11:350:11:37

-Is she...?

-Very kind.

0:11:370:11:38

-OK, very good. Nice atmosphere in the office? Nice people there?

-Lovely atmosphere.

0:11:380:11:42

OK, now Claire, what do you do when you're not working there?

0:11:420:11:45

I like reading, baking.

0:11:450:11:48

I'm very much into my history and my genealogy as well.

0:11:480:11:51

-Very good. Have you been tracing your own family tree, then?

-Yes.

0:11:510:11:54

-How far have you got?

-About to pre-Norman times.

-Oh, this is good.

0:11:540:11:58

-Who was Norman? Your grandad?

-Yeah.

0:11:580:12:00

LAUGHTER

0:12:000:12:02

Good stuff. Now, as I say, it doesn't matter what you score,

0:12:020:12:05

which is a nice position to be in.

0:12:050:12:07

But let's have a good answer from you.

0:12:070:12:09

I think I am going to go for a country that borders Brazil.

0:12:090:12:13

I am thinking Chile?

0:12:130:12:15

Chile, says Claire, Chile. No red line, you're already through.

0:12:150:12:18

Let's see how many people said Chile.

0:12:180:12:20

Bad luck, Claire, an incorrect answer. Scores you 100 points,

0:12:240:12:27

takes your total up to 107, but you are through.

0:12:270:12:30

Perfectly good. They're sort of on the opposite sides of the continent, Chile and Brazil.

0:12:300:12:34

-Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Claire.

-Hello.

0:12:340:12:37

Claire, welcome back, and now remind us what you do, Claire.

0:12:370:12:40

I am a communications manager for a charity that supports rural communities.

0:12:400:12:44

-Excellent, in Gloucester?

-That's right.

0:12:440:12:46

And, when not doing that, Claire, what keeps you happy?

0:12:460:12:50

I like travelling around, city breaks, that type of thing, reading, um...

0:12:500:12:55

How many of these countries have you travelled to?

0:12:550:12:58

Er, none of them.

0:12:580:13:02

-Do you know, nor have I.

-Have you never been to Belgium?

0:13:020:13:06

-Never been to Belgium. Isn't that shocking?

-Never been to Belgium?

-Never been to Belgium.

0:13:060:13:10

-I've been to Belgium.

-You have?

-Yeah, I'll tell you.

-Where should I go?

0:13:100:13:13

Belgium.

0:13:130:13:14

LAUGHTER

0:13:140:13:15

-Belarus is lovely.

-Lovely, so I gather.

-Antwerp.

0:13:160:13:20

-Mm-hm, Antwerp.

-Um, other bits.

0:13:200:13:24

Oh! I've heard other bits is lovely as well, yeah.

0:13:240:13:28

-Everyone goes to Bruges, though, don't they?

-Bruges - pretty.

0:13:280:13:31

Anyway, sorry, yes, Claire, now, what would you like to go for?

0:13:310:13:34

You're on 44, the high-scorers are Liam and Andy on 139.

0:13:340:13:38

-94 or less gets you through.

-That's embarrassing, isn't it?

0:13:380:13:41

Because I'm having that kind of... I haven't been to any of these countries -

0:13:410:13:45

where are they? I'm going to say the Netherlands.

0:13:450:13:47

The Netherlands. The Netherlands, surely,

0:13:470:13:49

that sounds like a good answer.

0:13:490:13:51

There is your red line. If you get below that with the Netherlands,

0:13:510:13:54

you are through to the next round. How many people say the Netherlands?

0:13:540:13:57

Well done. Through you go.

0:13:570:14:00

45!

0:14:020:14:03

APPLAUSE Takes the total up to 89.

0:14:030:14:05

Dutch is actually the most widely spoken language in Belgium.

0:14:080:14:10

-Lovely language.

-Yeah, perfectly good language.

-Yeah, yeah. There we go.

0:14:100:14:14

Now, Sara, welcome to the show, good to have you here.

0:14:140:14:16

How many of your perfect answers have been taken by other people?

0:14:160:14:20

-Almost all of them.

-All of them. What do you do, Sara?

0:14:200:14:23

-I stay at home looking after my twin daughters.

-How old are they?

0:14:230:14:26

They're almost two.

0:14:260:14:27

That's a sort of good age, isn't it?

0:14:270:14:29

I mean twins, they keep each other company.

0:14:290:14:32

Yeah, but now we have got the terrible twos,

0:14:320:14:34

-so now it's double trouble, literally.

-Double trouble.

0:14:340:14:37

It's kind of trouble squared, actually, isn't it?

0:14:370:14:40

-So, do they sort of fuel each other?

-Absolutely.

0:14:400:14:42

Yeah, yeah. What are their names?

0:14:420:14:46

-Medina and Inaya.

-Medina and Inaya, lovely.

0:14:460:14:49

Oh, now, Sara, what would you like to go for?

0:14:490:14:52

If you can score 71 or less, you'll be through to the next round.

0:14:520:14:56

I'm going to take an absolute guess, er...

0:14:560:14:59

-and say Peru?

-Peru.

0:14:590:15:02

OK, Peru, here is your red line.

0:15:020:15:04

You must get below that with Peru to remain with us. Best of luck. Will you?

0:15:040:15:08

It's right!

0:15:110:15:13

You do remain.

0:15:130:15:14

That's a great answer. Very well done indeed. 14. Second-lowest score

0:15:180:15:22

of the whole round. 81 is your total. Very well done.

0:15:220:15:25

Well played, Sara. Borders Brazil, of course. You have taken us neatly full circle

0:15:250:15:28

because Peru claim, and there is an awful lot to back it up,

0:15:280:15:32

that that's where potatoes come from.

0:15:320:15:34

Which of course is where fries come from.

0:15:340:15:36

Peruvian potatoes?

0:15:360:15:38

I can see why, yes.

0:15:380:15:39

A proud boast if you are Peruvian is,

0:15:390:15:41

"I am more Peruvian than a potato."

0:15:410:15:43

-That is an expression in Peru.

-Wow.

0:15:430:15:45

-Wonderful cuisine in Peru.

-Marvellous.

-Let no-one tell you otherwise.

0:15:450:15:49

Now, there's lots of pointless answers here -

0:15:490:15:51

they are mainly for countries that border Burkina Faso.

0:15:510:15:53

The pointless answers that border Burkina Faso... Cote d'Ivoire, Niger, Benin, Togo.

0:15:530:15:58

There's one other pointless answer bordering Brazil, which is Suriname.

0:15:580:16:02

For Bulgaria you could've had Serbia for one point,

0:16:020:16:04

it would have been a terrific answer. Two points for Macedonia.

0:16:040:16:07

For Belarus, you would have got three for Latvia, four for Lithuania.

0:16:070:16:12

Well done if you said any of those.

0:16:120:16:14

And the only other country is Belgium and other than the answers we already have,

0:16:140:16:17

which were the top three answers France and Netherlands and Germany.

0:16:170:16:20

Luxembourg would have scored you 12 points.

0:16:200:16:23

Thanks very much indeed, Richard. So the end of our first round.

0:16:230:16:25

I'm so sorry, Liam and Andy, our Red Kiters,

0:16:250:16:28

we have to say goodbye to you. You'll be back next time, though.

0:16:280:16:31

And we'll look forward to that very much, and I hope we see much more of you then.

0:16:310:16:34

Meantime, thanks very much indeed though, Liam and Andy.

0:16:340:16:36

APPLAUSE

0:16:360:16:39

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

0:16:390:16:43

Well, welcome to Round Two, everyone. Only three pairs remain.

0:16:480:16:51

We'll have to say goodbye to another pair at the end of this round, but well done to all of you.

0:16:510:16:55

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:16:550:16:58

Famous People. Can you all decide in your pairs who's going to go first, who's going to go second.

0:17:000:17:04

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

0:17:040:17:07

OK, and the question concerns...

0:17:090:17:11

-Richard.

-On each board we are going to show you the names of six people

0:17:140:17:18

and the years in which they took up a particular job or position.

0:17:180:17:21

We need you to name their immediate predecessor, please.

0:17:210:17:24

The last person to permanently hold that position.

0:17:240:17:26

It's going to be six on each board, 12 in all. Very best of luck.

0:17:260:17:30

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:17:300:17:31

So we're looking for the person who directly preceded these

0:17:310:17:34

people in these jobs.

0:17:340:17:36

I'll read those all one last time.

0:17:550:17:57

Now, Haroon, quite fun, this, as a round, I think, isn't it?

0:18:170:18:22

It is, it's a lot of fun.

0:18:220:18:23

What are you thinking?

0:18:230:18:27

Again, I'll probably go with the slightly safer of the two

0:18:270:18:30

that I'm thinking of thinking of and I'll say Ken Livingstone, former Mayor of London.

0:18:300:18:35

Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, says Haroon. Let's see if that's right.

0:18:350:18:38

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

0:18:380:18:41

It is right.

0:18:420:18:44

37. 37 with Ken Livingstone.

0:18:470:18:51

APPLAUSE

0:18:510:18:52

Well played, Haroon. He was the first directly elected Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone.

0:18:520:18:56

He was always quite a maverick and quite funny

0:18:560:18:58

and those were his selling points. He must have been gutted when Boris came along.

0:18:580:19:02

Thinking, "Oh, you are as well."

0:19:020:19:04

-Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Georgie.

-Hi.

0:19:040:19:09

I knew the Nick Grimshaw one

0:19:090:19:11

but it's just completely gone out of my head.

0:19:110:19:13

So, I'm going to play it safe and go with - I hope it's safe -

0:19:130:19:17

David Tennant, the Doctor before Matt Smith.

0:19:170:19:20

David Tennant, says Georgie. Let's see if that's right

0:19:200:19:22

and let's see how many of our 100 said David Tennant.

0:19:220:19:24

It's right. 37 is our only score so far.

0:19:270:19:31

You passed it, 23.

0:19:310:19:33

APPLAUSE

0:19:330:19:35

23, for David Tennant.

0:19:350:19:36

Well played. He took his surname from Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys

0:19:370:19:41

when he changed his name for Equity.

0:19:410:19:43

That's cool, isn't it? Very nice.

0:19:430:19:45

OK, so, Claire, what are you going to go for on this board?

0:19:450:19:49

I'm going to go for Rowan Williams as the predecessor for Justin Welby,

0:19:500:19:55

the Archbishop of Canterbury.

0:19:550:19:56

Rowan Williams, says Claire. Let's see if that's right,

0:19:560:19:59

let's see how many of our 100 said that.

0:19:590:20:01

Well, 37 is our high score,

0:20:050:20:06

23 our low, you passed 37, you passed 23,

0:20:060:20:10

that's a 3!

0:20:100:20:11

APPLAUSE

0:20:110:20:12

That's a very good answer, Claire, very well done for you.

0:20:120:20:14

3 for Rowan Williams.

0:20:140:20:17

Great answer, Claire, well played. One of our 100 people said Rowan Atkinson.

0:20:170:20:21

LAUGHTER

0:20:210:20:22

-We all have moments like that, to be honest, don't we?

-Yeah.

0:20:220:20:26

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

0:20:260:20:28

The predecessor to Nick Grimshaw...

0:20:280:20:31

-Chris Moyles.

-..was Chris Moyles, yep. Would've scored you 15 points.

0:20:310:20:35

The predecessor to Timothy Dalton was...

0:20:350:20:39

-It's tricky, isn't it, to remember the...

-Roger Moore...

0:20:390:20:41

-Roger Moore.

-Was it really Roger Moore?

-Yeah, it's Roger Moore, yeah. No-one in between.

0:20:410:20:45

29 points for that and other than Rowan Williams, the best answer up there,

0:20:450:20:48

the predecessor to Fabio Capello was Steve McClaren.

0:20:480:20:51

Steve McClaren would have scored you five points.

0:20:510:20:54

There we are. Thank you very much, Richard. Halfway through the round.

0:20:540:20:57

Let's take a look at those scores. Claire and Angharad looking

0:20:570:20:59

extremely strong on the far podium.

0:20:590:21:01

Lovely low score of 3 with Rowan Williams, there.

0:21:010:21:04

Then up to 23 where we find Georgie and Claire. 37, Haroon and Sara.

0:21:040:21:07

So, yes Sara, we need a low score from you on the next board. Good luck with that.

0:21:070:21:10

We're going to come back down the line. Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:100:21:14

OK, so let's put six more people up and their roles on the board.

0:21:160:21:21

We've got...

0:21:210:21:23

I'll read those all one last time.

0:21:380:21:40

Now then, Angharad.

0:21:580:22:00

We're looking for the names, remember, of the immediate predecessors of these people.

0:22:000:22:04

Right, I don't know many of these,

0:22:040:22:07

but I will go for...

0:22:070:22:10

Pope John Paul II?

0:22:100:22:12

John Paul II, says Angharad, John Paul II.

0:22:120:22:15

You are on three, the high scorers on 37 are Sara and Haroon.

0:22:150:22:18

Let's see how many people said John Paul II.

0:22:180:22:21

Very well done. Through you go. 19.

0:22:280:22:31

19 taking your total up to 22, the lowest total of the round.

0:22:320:22:36

Safe and sound on that last podium. While he was Pope he visited 129 countries.

0:22:360:22:41

And by "country", he meant a sovereign state that was a member of the UN.

0:22:410:22:44

LAUGHTER

0:22:440:22:46

There we go, thank you very much indeed.

0:22:460:22:48

-Now, Claire.

-Hello.

0:22:480:22:50

Claire, there you are on 23 - you have to score 13 or less. Little bit of pressure on that.

0:22:500:22:55

Yeah, I am going to try the poet laureate as Andrew Motion.

0:22:560:22:59

Andrew Motion, says Claire.

0:22:590:23:02

There's your red line. If you can get below that with Andrew Motion,

0:23:020:23:05

you are in the head-to-head - let's see if you can do it.

0:23:050:23:07

It's right.

0:23:100:23:11

You've done it! Look at that. Very well done indeed -

0:23:150:23:18

4 for or Andrew Motion. That's a great answer.

0:23:180:23:21

27.

0:23:210:23:22

APPLAUSE

0:23:220:23:24

Very good answering all round. Of course, Carol Ann Duffy the first female poet laureate.

0:23:240:23:28

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:23:280:23:30

Sara.

0:23:300:23:31

I'm sorry to say you are the high scorers even before you

0:23:310:23:34

give your answer. But how do you like this board?

0:23:340:23:37

Do you feel you might be able to talk us

0:23:370:23:40

-through any of those answers?

-I wish I could.

0:23:400:23:42

I could probably take a guess at the second one, probably only.

0:23:420:23:46

Um, Victoria?

0:23:460:23:48

Victoria, says Sara, Queen Victoria.

0:23:480:23:51

No red line for you as you are the high-scorers. Let's see how many of our 100 people said Queen Victoria.

0:23:510:23:56

Ooh, bad luck. I am afraid that scores you 100 points,

0:23:590:24:04

takes your total up to 137.

0:24:040:24:06

-Yeah, not Victoria, I'm afraid. It was...

-Edward VII.

-Edward VII.

0:24:060:24:09

It would have scored you 15 points.

0:24:090:24:12

-Now, the top answer, the predecessor to George Pompidou.

-It's Charles de Gaulle, is it?

0:24:120:24:15

Charles de Gaulle is absolutely right - would have scored you 10 points.

0:24:150:24:19

He, of course, was named after an airport. We think...

0:24:190:24:21

And we laugh at that but then think about it -

0:24:210:24:23

Victoria was named after a station, so we're no better. We are no better.

0:24:230:24:27

Des Lynam took over from Richard Whiteley,

0:24:270:24:32

the first host after Richard Whiteley, 24 points for that.

0:24:320:24:35

-Margaret Thatcher took over from...

-Jim Callaghan.

0:24:350:24:37

Jim Callaghan, yeah. That would have scored you 9.

0:24:370:24:40

So, best answer of the board Claire, Andrew Motion, well played.

0:24:400:24:43

Thanks very much indeed to the end of our second round,

0:24:430:24:45

the pair who are heading home with their high score of 137 is Sara and Haroon.

0:24:450:24:49

We will see you again next time. I'm sure we will see much, much more of you.

0:24:490:24:53

But meantime, thanks very much indeed, Sara and Haroon.

0:24:530:24:55

APPLAUSE

0:24:550:24:58

But for Claire and Angharad and Claire and Georgie,

0:24:580:25:01

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

0:25:010:25:02

Very well done, Claire and Georgie, Angharad and Claire.

0:25:070:25:10

You are now one step closer to the final and a chance to

0:25:100:25:12

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

0:25:120:25:16

Well, you know what happens here - you can you can start playing as a team,

0:25:160:25:19

you can confer before you give your answers, and the first pair to win two questions will be

0:25:190:25:23

playing for that jackpot.

0:25:230:25:24

I think this should be very exciting. I mean, we've had some great answers from both of you,

0:25:240:25:28

so yes, it should be close. Best of luck to both pairs.

0:25:280:25:31

Let's play the head-to-head.

0:25:310:25:32

APPLAUSE

0:25:320:25:34

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

0:25:370:25:41

-Fictional Princesses, Richard.

-We're going to show you five pictures, fictional princesses -

0:25:440:25:48

can you name them, please?

0:25:480:25:49

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

0:25:490:25:53

We've got...

0:25:530:25:55

There we are,

0:26:210:26:22

five fictional princesses.

0:26:220:26:24

Claire and Georgie, you're our low scorers, so you'll go first.

0:26:240:26:26

-Go on...

-I don't know anyone apart from A,

0:26:270:26:29

go for any girls you know, cos I don't know.

0:26:290:26:31

I think D is Jasmine.

0:26:330:26:34

OK, good, go for that.

0:26:360:26:37

I'm going to go with D, and, um, Jasmine?

0:26:400:26:43

Jasmine. D, Jasmine, say Claire and Georgie.

0:26:430:26:46

So, then, Angharad and Claire, do you want to talk us through

0:26:460:26:49

the other princesses?

0:26:490:26:51

A we know is Princess Leia.

0:26:510:26:54

B we know is from Enchanted, but we can't remember her name.

0:26:540:26:57

C is Xena: Warrior Princess.

0:26:570:27:01

And E is Elsa from Frozen.

0:27:010:27:04

-But I think we'll go for Xena: Warrior Princess?

-Yeah.

0:27:040:27:06

OK, we'll say C, Xena.

0:27:070:27:09

So, we have Jasmine and we have Xena.

0:27:090:27:12

Claire and Georgie said Jasmine, for D.

0:27:120:27:13

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

0:27:130:27:16

It's right.

0:27:190:27:20

42, for Jasmine.

0:27:230:27:24

APPLAUSE

0:27:240:27:25

Angharad and Claire, meanwhile, have said Xena for C.

0:27:280:27:31

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

0:27:310:27:35

It's right.

0:27:370:27:38

Can it beat 42? 47!

0:27:390:27:41

Very close indeed.

0:27:420:27:44

But it means, after one question, Claire and Georgie,

0:27:440:27:46

you're up 1-0.

0:27:460:27:48

Well played. Let's go through all of these.

0:27:480:27:50

The biggest scorer is Princess Leia, there, Carrie Fisher.

0:27:500:27:53

-That's a lovely photo, that.

-Isn't it?

0:27:530:27:55

It would have scored you 68 points.

0:27:550:27:58

You're right, it is from... It is Enchanted.

0:28:000:28:02

It's Amy Adams as Giselle.

0:28:020:28:04

It would've scored you one point - would've been a terrific answer.

0:28:040:28:07

And we saw Xena score 47.

0:28:090:28:11

And if you ever wanted evidence that the under-16s

0:28:110:28:14

are not part of our 100,

0:28:140:28:16

it's the fact that Elsa actually would've won you the point.

0:28:160:28:18

Cos it is Elsa, of course, from the wonderful Frozen,

0:28:180:28:21

and would've scored you 29.

0:28:210:28:22

Very well done to anyone of any age who got that at home -

0:28:220:28:25

terrific answer.

0:28:250:28:26

There we are. I worry a bit about, er, Jasmine's earrings.

0:28:260:28:29

-I just think...

-Really?

0:28:290:28:31

I just... I don't know, what are they? What is that - amber?

0:28:310:28:35

It's a very light ambergris.

0:28:350:28:37

Yeah, so it's not pulling at all.

0:28:370:28:39

So it's not... I was thinking if that were gold,

0:28:390:28:42

24-carat gold, that would be pretty serious.

0:28:420:28:45

You wouldn't do that. That would be a Pat Butcher type of...

0:28:450:28:47

-Yeah, very good. Thank you, Richard.

-It's a pleasure.

0:28:470:28:50

Glad we ironed that out.

0:28:500:28:51

Here comes your second question, Angharad and Claire.

0:28:510:28:53

You have to win it, but you get to answer it first.

0:28:530:28:56

So, good luck with that.

0:28:560:28:57

It concerns...

0:28:570:28:58

Albums by Queen, Richard.

0:29:010:29:02

We're going to show you the initials of five Top 40 albums by the band Queen.

0:29:020:29:05

We just need you to tell us what they are, please. Very best of luck.

0:29:050:29:08

Let's reveal our five sets of initials and here they come.

0:29:080:29:11

We've got...

0:29:110:29:12

I'll read those all one last time...

0:29:210:29:22

-Angharad and Claire will go first.

-I know the top one.

0:29:270:29:31

What is it?

0:29:310:29:32

A Kind Of Magic.

0:29:320:29:33

That's the only one I know.

0:29:330:29:34

I really don't know.

0:29:350:29:37

Unfortunately, we only know one of them.

0:29:370:29:40

My mum is probably at home now screaming at me

0:29:410:29:44

cos she will know every one of them.

0:29:440:29:46

We're going to go for the top answer,

0:29:460:29:47

AKOM, A Kind Of Magic.

0:29:470:29:50

A Kind Of Magic.

0:29:500:29:51

Now, Claire and Georgie.

0:29:510:29:53

I feel, as a child of the '70s I should know all of these, and

0:29:530:29:56

it's not coming. So, I've got to go for the obvious one which is

0:29:560:29:59

A Night At The Opera.

0:29:590:30:01

A Night At The Opera.

0:30:010:30:03

So we have A Kind Of Magic and we have A Night At The Opera.

0:30:030:30:05

Claire and Angharad said a kind of magic for AKOM.

0:30:050:30:07

Let's see if it's right and see how many people said A Kind Of Magic.

0:30:070:30:10

It's right.

0:30:130:30:15

25...

0:30:180:30:19

..for A Kind Of Magic.

0:30:190:30:21

Claire and Georgie, have gone for A Night At The Opera.

0:30:240:30:26

Let's see if that's right for ANATO.

0:30:260:30:28

Let's see how many people said it.

0:30:280:30:29

It's right.

0:30:330:30:35

It's got to beat 25... Oh, look at that, 26!

0:30:350:30:37

For A Night At The Opera, there we are.

0:30:370:30:39

Well done, and Angharad and Claire.

0:30:390:30:41

After two questions, it's one all. You're back in the game.

0:30:410:30:44

Yeah, very well played.

0:30:440:30:45

A lot of these are very similar scores.

0:30:450:30:47

We'll leave the best scoring, SHA is Sheer Heart Attack.

0:30:470:30:51

That would've scored you 23. NOTW...

0:30:530:30:55

News Of The World.

0:30:550:30:57

That would've scored you 28. The best answer on the board is FG.

0:30:570:31:00

Oh! I've just thought of what it is!

0:31:000:31:01

-Flash Gordon!

-Yup.

0:31:010:31:02

There we go.

0:31:020:31:04

Would've scored 13 points.

0:31:040:31:05

Well done if you said that.

0:31:050:31:06

Thanks very much, indeed.

0:31:060:31:07

Here comes your third question.

0:31:070:31:09

Whoever wins goes to the final and plays for the jackpot.

0:31:090:31:11

Best of luck to both players, it concerns...

0:31:110:31:14

The House of Commons, Richard.

0:31:160:31:18

It's been a good head-to-head,

0:31:180:31:19

we're gonna show you five clues now about the House of Commons.

0:31:190:31:22

Whichever team gives the most obscure answer will play for the jackpot.

0:31:220:31:25

Very best of luck to you all.

0:31:250:31:27

OK, let's reveal our five clues.

0:31:270:31:28

Here they come...

0:31:280:31:29

I'll read those one last time.

0:31:480:31:49

Claire and Georgie, you will go first.

0:32:060:32:09

It should be obvious.

0:32:090:32:10

-I don't know the Commons.

-I mean...

0:32:100:32:12

Help me.

0:32:120:32:13

-I can't.

-I don't feel secure.

0:32:140:32:16

I just know the Speaker,

0:32:160:32:17

John Bercow.

0:32:170:32:19

Oh, yeah, because he...isn't it?

0:32:190:32:22

Hm, interesting.

0:32:220:32:24

Should we go with this?

0:32:240:32:26

We'll go, well...

0:32:260:32:27

It's one I think I know, but I'm not brave enough,

0:32:270:32:30

I'm going to go for the Speaker, John Bercow.

0:32:300:32:32

John Bercow.

0:32:320:32:33

John Bercow, say Claire and Georgie.

0:32:330:32:35

Now, Angharad and Claire...

0:32:350:32:37

Talk us through the rest of the board?

0:32:370:32:38

We think the answer to the top one

0:32:390:32:41

is Yes, Prime Minister,

0:32:410:32:43

but we're not entirely sure.

0:32:430:32:45

The colour of the leather benches

0:32:460:32:47

in the Commons chamber is green.

0:32:470:32:50

The two letter abbreviation is, MP.

0:32:500:32:53

We're not entirely sure, we think the

0:32:530:32:55

position held by Sir Robert Rogers,

0:32:550:32:57

Clerk of the House.

0:32:570:32:58

Go on.

0:32:580:33:00

We're going to take a risk.

0:33:000:33:02

We're going to go for the position officer, Robert Rogers.

0:33:020:33:05

That position was Clerk of the House, we think.

0:33:050:33:07

Clerk of the House, you say, Clerk of the House.

0:33:070:33:09

So, we have John Bercow and we have Clerk of the House.

0:33:090:33:12

Now, Claire and Georgie said John Bercow.

0:33:120:33:15

Let's see if that's right,

0:33:150:33:17

as the MP elected Speaker.

0:33:170:33:19

APPLAUSE 29.

0:33:280:33:30

29 for John Bercow.

0:33:300:33:32

Meanwhile, Angharad and Claire have said

0:33:320:33:34

that Sir Robert Rogers is the Clerk of the House,

0:33:340:33:38

or at least was until August 2014.

0:33:380:33:39

Let's see if that's right, Clerk of the House of Commons.

0:33:390:33:42

It's right!

0:33:440:33:45

It's absolutely right.

0:33:470:33:48

Robert Rogers wins that for you.

0:33:480:33:50

And wins the round for you,

0:33:500:33:51

that sends you into the final.

0:33:510:33:53

It means very well done, Angharad and Claire.

0:33:550:33:57

After three questions, you're through to the final, 2-1.

0:33:570:34:00

It shouldn't surprise us, with the performances of both teams.

0:34:000:34:02

Those were the best two answers on the board, very well played.

0:34:020:34:05

There was a very good documentary, very illuminating anyway,

0:34:050:34:08

about the House of Commons and he featured significantly in that.

0:34:080:34:11

Sir Robert Rogers, drama series...

0:34:110:34:15

-it was...

-House Of Cards.

0:34:150:34:16

House Of Cards, which they remade with Kevin Spacey.

0:34:160:34:18

That would've scored 40.

0:34:180:34:20

You're right about green.

0:34:200:34:22

That would have scored you 58.

0:34:220:34:24

And the two letter abbreviation is...

0:34:240:34:26

MP.

0:34:260:34:28

And that would've scored you 88 points.

0:34:280:34:30

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:34:300:34:32

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

0:34:320:34:34

I'm afraid, it's Claire and Georgie,

0:34:340:34:36

but a great performance across the show.

0:34:360:34:38

Angharad and Claire, pipped you with the third questionnaire.

0:34:380:34:40

This is where we have to say goodbye. Thank you for playing.

0:34:400:34:43

Claire and Georgie, great performance!

0:34:430:34:45

But for Angharad and Claire, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:480:34:51

Well done, Angharad and Claire, you fought off all the competition

0:34:560:34:59

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:34:590:35:03

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:35:080:35:11

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

0:35:110:35:14

There we are. Well, we've had really good answers from you.

0:35:140:35:17

Right across the show, but what would you like to see in this final round?

0:35:170:35:21

Food and drink.

0:35:210:35:22

I studied History at university,

0:35:220:35:25

So, a couple of history questions would be good.

0:35:250:35:29

OK, well, let's see what today's choices look like.

0:35:290:35:31

You need to select one of these.

0:35:310:35:33

You're happy to go... Are you confident, cause I don't know.

0:35:430:35:47

Totally depends on the questions come up, but that is the most...

0:35:470:35:51

..category I feel most confident with, but...

0:35:510:35:54

-What do you have?

-Any other one that you'd like to go for?

0:35:540:35:57

No.

0:35:570:35:58

We'll I'll go for the Edwardian Era, please.

0:35:580:36:01

OK, the Edwardian Era, it is.

0:36:010:36:03

OK, very, very best of luck. We are looking for...

0:36:030:36:06

Any of the children of Edward VII,

0:36:060:36:08

with Princess or Queen Alexandra, please.

0:36:080:36:10

Any of the children.

0:36:100:36:12

We are looking for any sports in the 1908 Summer Olympics,

0:36:120:36:15

the overall sports, not the events within it.

0:36:150:36:18

Or any cast member of Howard's End.

0:36:180:36:21

Any cast member of the 1992 film, Howard's End, according to IMDB.

0:36:210:36:25

So, children of Edward VII, 1908 Summer Olympics sports,

0:36:250:36:29

or the cast of Howard's End.

0:36:290:36:31

Very best of luck.

0:36:310:36:32

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

0:36:320:36:36

all you need to win the jackpot is for one of your answers to be Pointless.

0:36:360:36:39

Are you ready?

0:36:390:36:41

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:36:410:36:42

Let's put one minute on the board.

0:36:420:36:44

There it is, your time starts now.

0:36:440:36:46

Edward VII, Edward VII.

0:36:460:36:48

It will be Princess Maud of Norway, but that's the only one I know.

0:36:480:36:51

But we can take a guess and output some royal names in there.

0:36:510:36:55

Yeah, that sounds quite obscure, that sounds right.

0:36:550:36:58

Never seen cast of Howard's End. No idea what that's about!

0:36:580:37:01

What would be in the Summer Olympics?

0:37:010:37:04

-1908?

-1908.

0:37:040:37:06

Things like...

0:37:060:37:08

They used to have tug-of-war

0:37:080:37:09

-Let's try tug-of-war.

-Yeah, that's a good idea.

0:37:090:37:12

But they have something like archery?

0:37:120:37:14

-Obviously, they still have that...

-We can try it.

0:37:140:37:17

Try tug-of-war, that's a good one.

0:37:170:37:20

Right, tug-of-war.

0:37:200:37:21

Maud, we can take a guess at it?

0:37:210:37:22

You know that, do you know that?

0:37:220:37:24

We could, maybe, try.

0:37:250:37:27

It's up to you though.

0:37:280:37:30

Can you think of one?

0:37:300:37:31

I would think like an Albert,

0:37:310:37:32

not a Victoria,

0:37:320:37:34

but like an Albert or a...

0:37:340:37:35

-Or George.

-Ten seconds left.

0:37:350:37:38

-Or Alexandra.

-Alexandra?

-Oh, yeah.

0:37:380:37:41

-I'll leave that up to you.

-OK. Right.

0:37:410:37:43

OK.

0:37:460:37:47

That's your time up. I now need your three answers.

0:37:470:37:50

What are you going to give me?

0:37:500:37:52

First answer we'll go, Princess Maud,

0:37:520:37:55

I believe she ended up being Queen of Norway.

0:37:550:37:58

Princess Maud, and this, obviously, is...

0:37:580:38:00

For children of Edward VII.

0:38:000:38:01

Yes, Princess Maud.

0:38:010:38:03

1908 Summer Olympics sports, we'll go for tug-of-war.

0:38:030:38:06

Tug-of-war.

0:38:060:38:07

And the last one is a random guess,

0:38:070:38:10

we're going to take a guess at a royal name for children of Edward VII.

0:38:100:38:15

And I think...

0:38:150:38:16

We'll go Albert.

0:38:160:38:18

OK, Prince Albert.

0:38:180:38:19

A prince Albert.

0:38:190:38:21

So Princess Maud, tug-of-war, Prince Albert.

0:38:210:38:23

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

0:38:230:38:25

-Maud, I think. Yeah.

-Maud.

-OK, Maud goes last.

0:38:250:38:27

Least likely to be pointless?

0:38:270:38:29

Albert, because that's the guess.

0:38:290:38:30

Albert goes first and tug-of-war in the middle.

0:38:300:38:32

Let's pop the answers on the board. Here they are...

0:38:320:38:35

OK, well very, very best of luck.

0:38:410:38:43

Three good answers up on the board.

0:38:430:38:47

Let's hope one of those, at least, is Pointless.

0:38:470:38:49

What would you do with that jackpot if you won it?

0:38:490:38:52

Angharad, you first.

0:38:520:38:53

I'd like to say I'd be sensible and save it,

0:38:540:38:56

but I think I just shopping to be honest.

0:38:560:38:59

LAUGHTER

0:38:590:39:00

Claire, how about you?

0:39:000:39:02

Well, I'm turning 30 next year,

0:39:020:39:04

so I'd spend it on a holiday to celebrate my birthday.

0:39:040:39:06

Very good, well, best of luck. As I say, three very good answers.

0:39:060:39:10

Your first answer was Albert, Prince Albert.

0:39:100:39:13

In this case, we were looking for the children of Edward VII.

0:39:130:39:16

You thought this was your least confident shot at a Pointless answer.

0:39:160:39:19

You only have to find one to win that jackpot.

0:39:190:39:21

Let's see how many people said Prince Albert.

0:39:210:39:23

If it's pointless it will win you £1,000.

0:39:230:39:26

It's right.

0:39:290:39:30

If this goes all the way down to 0, you leave here with £1,000.

0:39:310:39:35

Down Prince Albert goes,

0:39:350:39:36

through the '20s and the teens.

0:39:360:39:38

Are we into single digits? We are, down goes 5.

0:39:380:39:41

A very, very good score there,

0:39:440:39:46

Unfortunately, not a Pointless answer.

0:39:460:39:48

Which means you only have two more shots at today's jackpot.

0:39:480:39:51

Your next answer was tug-of-war.

0:39:510:39:54

We were looking for sports in the 1908 Olympics.

0:39:540:39:57

Tug-of-war has to be pointless for you to win the jackpot for £1,000.

0:39:570:40:00

Let's see how many people said, tug-of-war.

0:40:000:40:02

It's right.

0:40:050:40:07

Tug-of-war is right,

0:40:080:40:10

Prince Albert was right,

0:40:100:40:11

took us down all the way to five.

0:40:110:40:13

Tug-of-war takes us down through the teens,

0:40:130:40:15

into single figures.

0:40:150:40:16

Yes, down we go, 7! Tug-of-war.

0:40:160:40:19

Two very, very good answers so far by the way.

0:40:190:40:22

Single figure scores, any of which you'd be delighted to have

0:40:220:40:24

in normal gameplay, but sadly,

0:40:240:40:26

it's only pointless answers that count in this last round.

0:40:260:40:28

You third and final answer was Princess Maud.

0:40:280:40:31

Again, we're back on the children of Edward VII.

0:40:310:40:34

You thought this was your best shot at a Pointless answer.

0:40:340:40:37

If it is pointless, it will win you £1,000.

0:40:370:40:39

How many people said Princess Maud?

0:40:390:40:40

It's right!

0:40:440:40:45

So, Prince Albert took us down to five,

0:40:450:40:48

the tug-of-war took us down to seven.

0:40:480:40:51

Princess Maud, taking us down through the teens,

0:40:510:40:53

into single figures, down it goes,

0:40:530:40:55

past the seven, still going down, one!

0:40:550:40:56

-Oh!

-Oh!

0:40:560:40:59

Oh, that's cruel.

0:41:010:41:02

Three exceptional answers there.

0:41:050:41:07

Particularly, that last one, and just a very confident

0:41:070:41:11

stab at the whole thing from you in that last round.

0:41:110:41:13

I'm sorry, you didn't find that all important Pointless answer.

0:41:130:41:16

I'm afraid you won't win today's jackpot of £1,000.

0:41:160:41:19

That will roll over onto the next show.

0:41:190:41:21

But, you can hold your heads up so high.

0:41:210:41:23

A really wonderful, strong performance right across the show.

0:41:230:41:26

And you get to take home a Pointless trophy each,

0:41:260:41:28

in recognition of that at least.

0:41:280:41:30

Very well done. Angharad and Claire.

0:41:300:41:32

APPLAUSE

0:41:320:41:33

Yeah, that's really unlucky.

0:41:380:41:40

A great show with very worthy winners.

0:41:400:41:42

As you say, went on to be Queen Maud of Norway.

0:41:420:41:44

I think you were saying towards the end,

0:41:440:41:46

let's just try and think of some royal names.

0:41:460:41:49

One of the names you said, I think, maybe...

0:41:490:41:51

Our friend here made you think of it, Alexander,

0:41:510:41:54

was a Pointless answer.

0:41:540:41:57

Two Pointless answers in that category, let's take a look.

0:41:570:42:00

they were Alexander and another royal name, Louise.

0:42:000:42:03

The other children were George, who would've scored you 13,

0:42:030:42:06

Victoria, nine.

0:42:060:42:07

Let's take a look at the next category, the sports

0:42:070:42:09

of the 1908 Summer Olympics.

0:42:090:42:10

Figure skating, this was before the winter Olympics.

0:42:100:42:13

Hockey would've been a Pointless answer, water motorsports,

0:42:130:42:16

and Greco Roman wrestling, first time ever

0:42:160:42:18

and it's been at the Olympics ever since.

0:42:180:42:20

Other answers you could've had are artistic gymnastics,

0:42:200:42:22

lacrosse, polo, racket water polo and freestyle wrestling.

0:42:220:42:26

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

0:42:260:42:29

Let's take a look at the cast of Howard's End.

0:42:290:42:31

Everybody apart from, the only ones that scored points were

0:42:370:42:40

Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, Helena Bonham-Carter,

0:42:400:42:42

Vanessa Redgrave, and James Wilby. Any other answers were pointless.

0:42:420:42:46

Well played if you got those at home and really unlucky.

0:42:460:42:48

It's been a terrific show and you've been terrific winners.

0:42:480:42:51

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:42:510:42:52

Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to you, Angharad and Claire.

0:42:520:42:55

It's been wonderful having you on the show. Thank you so much.

0:42:550:42:58

Wonderful.

0:42:580:42:59

Well very sadly, Angharad and Claire didn't win our jackpot today,

0:43:020:43:05

which means it rolls over onto the next show,

0:43:050:43:07

when we will be going for £2,000.

0:43:070:43:09

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:43:120:43:14

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:140:43:16

And, it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:160:43:18
