CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:140:00:18

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:220:00:23

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

0:00:230:00:25

the show where the aim of the game

0:00:250:00:26

is to score as few points as you can.

0:00:260:00:28

You do that by coming up with the answers no-one else could think of.

0:00:280:00:31

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:310:00:32

And couple number one.

0:00:370:00:38

I'm Ellis, this is Ellen.

0:00:380:00:40

We're friends and we're from Staffordshire.

0:00:400:00:42

Couple number two.

0:00:420:00:43

Hi, I'm Zoe. This is Alex, my boyfriend, and we're from Brighton.

0:00:430:00:46

Couple number three.

0:00:460:00:48

I'm Anne, this is my good friend, Barbara,

0:00:480:00:49

and we're from Thurcaston in Leicestershire.

0:00:490:00:51

And finally couple number four.

0:00:510:00:53

Hi, I'm Colm. This is my dad, Clint, and we're from Reigate in Surrey.

0:00:530:00:56

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:560:00:58

Thanks very much all of you.

0:01:000:01:02

We will, of course, chat to each of you throughout the show,

0:01:020:01:04

as it goes on. And that just leaves one more person for me to introduce.

0:01:040:01:08

Sculpting today's trophy from the frozen tears of failed contestants,

0:01:080:01:12

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

0:01:120:01:14

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

-Hiya. Hi, everybody.

0:01:140:01:17

-Good afternoon to you.

-Good afternoon.

0:01:200:01:21

-How are you?

-I'm very well.

0:01:210:01:23

What a win last time.

0:01:230:01:24

-Steve and Alice - £3,000 they took home.

-Yeah.

0:01:240:01:27

Vilnius was their winning answer.

0:01:270:01:28

I won't tell you what the question was -

0:01:280:01:30

you'll just have to guess what it was. Vilnius.

0:01:300:01:32

-Vilnius.

-Impressively done. One pair returning from that show.

0:01:320:01:35

That's Ellis and Ellen on podium one there.

0:01:350:01:37

-Now, Ellis and Ellen joined the 200 Club last time.

-Mm.

0:01:370:01:41

-But they were very unlucky, in my opinion.

-Mm.

0:01:410:01:43

It was one of those questions,

0:01:430:01:45

where something wasn't in the dictionary,

0:01:450:01:46

which people might think it was.

0:01:460:01:48

So I think an unfortunate joining of the 200 Club.

0:01:480:01:51

-Yeah.

-But we welcome three new pairs.

0:01:510:01:54

Lovely first question today.

0:01:540:01:56

-Is it?

-Yeah.

-Oh, that makes a change, doesn't it?!

-It does.

0:01:560:01:59

Normally I try to have a disappointing one,

0:01:590:02:01

but today I thought, "Why not? Come on."

0:02:010:02:03

Why not? Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:02:030:02:04

Now, all our questions on Pointless

0:02:040:02:06

have been put to 100 people before the show.

0:02:060:02:08

Our contestants must find those obscure answers

0:02:080:02:10

our 100 people didn't get.

0:02:100:02:12

Of course, everyone's trying to find a pointless answer -

0:02:120:02:14

that being an answer that NONE of our 100 people gave.

0:02:140:02:16

Each time that happens, we will add £250 to the jackpot.

0:02:160:02:19

Now, Steve and Alice won the jackpot last time,

0:02:190:02:21

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

0:02:210:02:25

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

0:02:250:02:28

All you have to remember is that the pair with the highest score

0:02:340:02:36

at the end of each round will be eliminated.

0:02:360:02:38

So do your best to find those low-scoring answers.

0:02:380:02:41

OK, our first category today is...

0:02:410:02:44

Bond Films. Can you all decide in your pairs

0:02:470:02:49

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

0:02:490:02:51

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

0:02:510:02:53

Very good. And our first question is all about...

0:02:570:03:01

Oscar-Nominated Bond Actors, Richard.

0:03:030:03:05

Simply, we're going to show you 16 pictures now of actors.

0:03:050:03:08

They've all appeared in Bond films

0:03:080:03:09

and they've all been Oscar-nominated at some point in their career.

0:03:090:03:12

You just need to tell us who the actors are, please.

0:03:120:03:14

So any of the following 16 faces you're about to see.

0:03:140:03:17

OK. So, as Richard has explained, we're going to show you 16 pictures.

0:03:170:03:21

You just have to identify one of the people on that board.

0:03:210:03:24

And here is that image.

0:03:240:03:26

Look at that.

0:03:280:03:29

There they all are - Bond actors.

0:03:300:03:33

Bond actors.

0:03:340:03:36

Now, Ellen, welcome back.

0:03:360:03:38

Remind us what you do, Ellen.

0:03:380:03:40

I'm a student. I also work part-time in a pharmacy.

0:03:400:03:44

Which department of the pharmacy?

0:03:440:03:45

Are you actually behind the prescriptions counter?

0:03:450:03:47

I'm an assistant, so I can't prescribe you anything,

0:03:470:03:49

but I can tell you what I think's good for you.

0:03:490:03:51

-People do that in pharmacies all the time now, don't they?

-Yeah.

0:03:510:03:54

What's the thing that most people try and buy

0:03:540:03:56

that you have to sort of clamp down on?

0:03:560:03:58

I would probably say, on average,

0:03:580:04:00

it's always stuff like cough medicines and things like that.

0:04:000:04:03

Everyone has a cough and cold.

0:04:030:04:05

Sometimes they do that, don't they? They hold it like that and they say,

0:04:050:04:07

-"Have you used this before? Describe your symptoms."

-Yeah.

0:04:070:04:10

-"Are you buying it for yourself?"

-Yeah.

-That one.

0:04:100:04:12

And then very reluctantly you hand it over. This time!

0:04:120:04:15

Always with that, you just lie, don't you?

0:04:150:04:17

"Yes, it's for me. Yes, I've used it before.

0:04:170:04:19

-"Yes, I know it's a pregnancy test."

-Yeah!

0:04:190:04:21

LAUGHTER

0:04:210:04:23

-What are the symptoms?"

-Yeah.

0:04:230:04:24

-Now, Ellen, Bond actors?

-OK.

0:04:260:04:28

-Are we happy? Are we happy about this as a round?

-It's OK.

0:04:280:04:30

OK. Good. There we are, good. Ellen, Bond actors.

0:04:300:04:34

OK. I'm going to say Rosamund Pike.

0:04:340:04:37

Rosamund Pike, says Ellen. Let's see if that's right,

0:04:370:04:39

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

0:04:390:04:42

It is right.

0:04:440:04:45

That is a very, very, very good answer, Ellen.

0:04:510:04:53

5 for Rosamund Pike.

0:04:550:04:58

-On the evidence of that, they were robbed last time.

-Weren't they?

0:04:580:05:01

That's terrific stuff, Ellen. Very well played.

0:05:010:05:03

Yes, she played Miranda Frost in Die Another Day,

0:05:030:05:05

and she was Oscar nominated for Gone Girl.

0:05:050:05:07

-Thank you. Now, Alex.

-Hi.

-Welcome to Pointless.

0:05:070:05:09

-Great to have you. You're from Brighton?

-Yes, I am.

0:05:090:05:11

And what is it you do in Brighton?

0:05:110:05:13

I'm a secondary school science teacher.

0:05:130:05:15

So when term finishes, Alex,

0:05:150:05:16

and you've done all your things you have to do for the following term,

0:05:160:05:19

what do you like to run off and do?

0:05:190:05:21

Um, I like to exercise a lot.

0:05:210:05:24

I like to go and watch lots of Game Of Thrones as well.

0:05:240:05:27

Avid Game Of Thrones...

0:05:280:05:31

-..watcher?

-..watcher. Yeah.

0:05:310:05:33

"Wotcha!"

0:05:330:05:34

I watch lots of sport as well.

0:05:360:05:38

I'm a really big Liverpool fan.

0:05:380:05:40

Very good. Are you a Bond fan?

0:05:400:05:43

Am I a Bond fan? Yes, I am.

0:05:430:05:44

-This is good.

-Yeah.

-This is good.

0:05:440:05:46

Alex, Bond actors.

0:05:460:05:47

-Bond actors, Alex.

-Er, I'm going to go...

0:05:470:05:50

I know a couple of them but I'm going to go for Javier Bardem.

0:05:500:05:53

Javier Bardem, says Alex.

0:05:530:05:54

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

0:05:540:05:57

9. APPLAUSE

0:06:060:06:08

9 for Javier Bardem.

0:06:110:06:14

Nice work, Alex. I always get nervous for teachers

0:06:140:06:16

because of all the kids watching.

0:06:160:06:18

But that's a perfectly good answer, isn't it?

0:06:180:06:19

Yeah, played Silva in Skyfall.

0:06:190:06:21

And won an Oscar for No Country For Old Men.

0:06:210:06:23

There you go. Thanks very much indeed.

0:06:230:06:25

Barbara, welcome to the show.

0:06:250:06:26

-Here from Thurcaston.

-Yes.

0:06:260:06:29

I think it's the first time we've had contestants from Thurcaston.

0:06:290:06:32

-Yes.

-I believe.

0:06:320:06:33

What do you do, Barbara?

0:06:330:06:34

I'm a part-time reader for a local publisher.

0:06:340:06:37

Is that proofreading?

0:06:370:06:39

No, I just read the books. They pay me to read the books.

0:06:390:06:42

And then what do you do on the back of that?

0:06:420:06:44

-You would say...

-I do have to write a report.

0:06:440:06:46

-"I liked it."

-Recommend it for publishing or not.

-Right.

0:06:460:06:48

Are you very candid then, if there are things you don't like?

0:06:480:06:51

I say if it's good...

0:06:510:06:52

There's no point saying it's a nice book if it's rubbish

0:06:520:06:55

-and you don't want to inflict it on other people.

-OK.

0:06:550:06:57

LAUGHTER

0:06:570:06:58

But you have to read to the end, don't you?

0:06:580:07:00

-So if you're really hating it...

-You have to read all of it.

0:07:000:07:02

Cos they are paying you.

0:07:020:07:04

-There is that.

-There is that.

-There is that.

0:07:040:07:06

Now Barbara, Bond actors.

0:07:060:07:08

Julian Fellowes.

0:07:090:07:11

Julian Fellowes, says Barbara. Let's see if that's right.

0:07:110:07:14

Let's see how many of our 100 people identified Julian Fellowes.

0:07:140:07:17

Very well done indeed.

0:07:260:07:28

Best score so far.

0:07:280:07:29

4 for Julian Fellowes.

0:07:290:07:30

It's a very high-quality first round, isn't it, so far?

0:07:340:07:37

Look at those scores. Yeah, he plays the Minister for Defence

0:07:370:07:39

in Tomorrow Never Dies.

0:07:390:07:41

And won an Oscar for the screenplay for Gosford Park.

0:07:410:07:44

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:07:440:07:46

-Clint. Welcome to the show.

-Hello.

0:07:460:07:47

Good to have you here. Where are you from, Clint?

0:07:470:07:49

Reigate in Surrey.

0:07:490:07:51

And what do you do there?

0:07:510:07:52

I'm a property developer.

0:07:520:07:54

I have a small development company, construction.

0:07:540:07:58

Buy land, build new houses.

0:07:580:08:00

Right you are. And what are your loves, Clint?

0:08:000:08:02

-Loves? Bruce Springsteen.

-That's good.

0:08:020:08:05

-The England football team.

-That's good.

0:08:050:08:08

And Colm.

0:08:080:08:09

-ALL:

-Aw!

-LAUGHTER

0:08:090:08:11

And do you manage to see lots of all of those people?

0:08:110:08:14

-I'm sure you see lots of Colm!

-Yeah,

0:08:140:08:15

I've just come back from seeing Bruce play at Madison Square Garden.

0:08:150:08:20

Wow. How many times have you seen him?

0:08:200:08:22

Round about 25 times now.

0:08:220:08:24

Do you have a favourite gig?

0:08:240:08:26

A favourite gig?

0:08:260:08:27

The last one was fantastic,

0:08:270:08:29

cos it was a rerun of The River Tour.

0:08:290:08:33

Which you also saw?

0:08:330:08:34

-Yes, I did, in 1981.

-Wow.

0:08:340:08:37

-Good work.

-And I follow the England football team quite a bit.

0:08:370:08:41

Oh, we went to see them at Madison Square Garden!

0:08:410:08:43

They were amazing!

0:08:430:08:45

-It was a rerun of Italia '90.

-Yeah.

-It was, er...

0:08:450:08:48

-I mean, it ended badly, but...

-Yeah.

0:08:480:08:51

Really, really good. Now, Clint,

0:08:510:08:53

what would you like to go for on this board?

0:08:530:08:55

I know a few of them. There are some low answers already.

0:08:550:08:59

So I'm going to try Christopher Walken.

0:08:590:09:01

-Christopher Walken...

-Yes.

0:09:010:09:02

..says Clint, let's see if that's right.

0:09:020:09:04

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

0:09:040:09:07

It's right.

0:09:080:09:09

4 is our lowest score. 9 is our highest.

0:09:110:09:13

Ooh, 27 for Christopher Walken.

0:09:130:09:15

APPLAUSE

0:09:150:09:16

-Yeah, in any other round, not a bad score, is it, 27?

-No.

0:09:200:09:23

He was in A View To A Kill.

0:09:230:09:25

And he won an Oscar for The Deer Hunter.

0:09:250:09:27

-Christopher Walken.

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

0:09:270:09:30

Well, we're halfway through the round.

0:09:300:09:32

Let's take a look at those scores.

0:09:320:09:34

Well, Barbara, very well done.

0:09:340:09:35

Barbara and Anne looking very strong on 4.

0:09:350:09:37

Then we travel up to 5, where we find Ellen and Ellis.

0:09:370:09:40

HE SIGHS A reprieve after last time!

0:09:400:09:42

Then up to 9, where we find Alex and Zoe. Very well done.

0:09:420:09:44

Then up to 27. Christopher Walken -

0:09:440:09:46

a high scorer for you, Clint.

0:09:460:09:47

So, Colm, you know what you have to do.

0:09:470:09:49

We need a really obscure and low-scoring answer.

0:09:490:09:51

Best of luck. We'll come back down the line now.

0:09:510:09:53

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:09:530:09:56

OK, so remember, we're looking for the names

0:09:590:10:01

of any of these Oscar-nominated Bond actors.

0:10:010:10:03

And obviously, Colm,

0:10:030:10:05

you're going to try to find the lowest-scoring one you can.

0:10:050:10:07

-Colm, welcome to the show.

-Hi there.

0:10:070:10:09

What do you do, Colm?

0:10:090:10:10

I study graphic design at Southampton Solent.

0:10:100:10:12

-That's fun.

-Mm-hm.

-What year are you in?

0:10:120:10:14

I'm in my second at the moment.

0:10:140:10:16

-Enjoying it?

-Oh, I love it.

0:10:160:10:17

And graphic design, is that where you're going to go afterwards?

0:10:170:10:20

-Yeah.

-You're sure of that. You're enjoying it enough.

0:10:200:10:22

What are your hobbies, when you're not working?

0:10:220:10:24

Playing tennis a lot, watching Pointless a little bit.

0:10:240:10:27

This is... "A little bit"? What do you mean?!

0:10:270:10:30

-You do MORE tennis?!

-Sorry, I love Pointless.

-Thank you.

0:10:300:10:32

It's only 45 minutes a day, to be fair.

0:10:320:10:34

Well, I know, but does he play tennis that often?

0:10:340:10:36

I want to know. 45 minutes of tennis a day?

0:10:360:10:39

-Colm? Yeah.

-Really?

0:10:390:10:41

Yeah, yeah, he absolutely does.

0:10:410:10:42

"Pointless Colm", they call him!

0:10:420:10:44

LAUGHTER

0:10:440:10:46

-Er, Colm.

-Yes.

-Now...

0:10:460:10:48

..Bond people.

0:10:490:10:51

Yeah, a bit of a tough act to follow, with everyone else.

0:10:510:10:53

COLM PUFFS

0:10:530:10:55

I think I'm going to go with John Cleese.

0:10:550:10:57

John Cleese, says Colm.

0:10:570:10:59

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

0:10:590:11:01

Let's see how much we get for John Cleese.

0:11:010:11:03

It's right.

0:11:060:11:07

Oh! I feared that might be the answer there.

0:11:080:11:11

APPLAUSE

0:11:110:11:13

76, taking your total up to 103.

0:11:130:11:15

Yeah, that is a big score.

0:11:150:11:16

He's in a couple of Bond films, Cleese,

0:11:160:11:18

and nominated for the screenplay for A Fish Called Wanda.

0:11:180:11:21

That's where he got his Oscar nomination from.

0:11:210:11:24

-Yeah, a very recognisable face.

-Yes.

0:11:240:11:26

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:11:260:11:28

-Anne.

-Hello.

-Welcome to the show.

0:11:280:11:30

-What do you do, Anne?

-I'm a student with the Open University.

0:11:300:11:34

-And what are you studying?

-English literature.

0:11:340:11:37

And how long have you been studying it?

0:11:370:11:38

Six years. But it's part-time!

0:11:380:11:40

-That's the nice thing about the Open University.

-Yes.

0:11:400:11:42

You can take your time.

0:11:420:11:43

-Are you loving it?

-Absolutely fantastic.

0:11:430:11:45

I finished in the summer.

0:11:450:11:47

I've just got two essays and one exam.

0:11:470:11:50

And then I'm just going to be bereft.

0:11:500:11:52

Ah! But I mean, you want to be...

0:11:520:11:54

I don't know, I don't know. How do you keep that going?

0:11:540:11:56

How do you keep that fire burning, I wonder?

0:11:560:11:58

I'm going to learn Latin, I think.

0:11:580:12:00

That's how you keep the fire burning.

0:12:000:12:02

Just work through all the arts and then move on to science.

0:12:020:12:05

I thought about starting with A and going through to Z.

0:12:050:12:08

That's a great idea.

0:12:080:12:10

Now, Anne, Bond actors.

0:12:100:12:12

I am really not good at this

0:12:130:12:15

but I do know a handsome man who looks very much like you.

0:12:150:12:20

LAUGHTER

0:12:220:12:24

Slightly weird non sequitur there, but go on.

0:12:240:12:27

And that's "Ralph Fienne".

0:12:290:12:31

-Say it one more time.

-"Fienne".

0:12:310:12:33

F-I-E-N-N-E-S?

0:12:330:12:35

OK, let's see if Ralph Fiennes is right.

0:12:350:12:37

There's your red line.

0:12:370:12:38

Very well done.

0:12:410:12:42

APPLAUSE

0:12:450:12:47

Ralph Fiennes takes your total up to 36.

0:12:490:12:52

Well done, Anne. Ralph Fiennes,

0:12:520:12:54

but given you spelled it, we allowed it.

0:12:540:12:55

Of course, he stars in Skyfall and Spectre.

0:12:550:12:58

Or as Anne calls them, "Kyfall" and "Pectre".

0:12:580:13:00

LAUGHTER

0:13:000:13:02

Oscar-nominated for Schindler's List

0:13:020:13:04

and English Patient as well.

0:13:040:13:07

There we go. Zoe.

0:13:070:13:08

-Hi.

-Welcome to Pointless.

0:13:080:13:10

Great to have you here from Brighton.

0:13:100:13:12

I'm actually from Swansea in Wales but I study in Brighton.

0:13:120:13:15

-I see.

-Yes.

-Yeah.

0:13:150:13:17

-I'm at uni there.

-You're at uni there.

0:13:170:13:18

-And what year are you in?

-I'm in third year.

0:13:180:13:20

-What are you studying?

-Pharmacy.

0:13:200:13:22

-Have you been...?

-Yeah, I've talked to... Yeah.

-OK.

0:13:240:13:27

Basically, all you have to learn is this.

0:13:270:13:30

LAUGHTER

0:13:300:13:32

-Are you enjoying it though?

-Yeah, it's good.

0:13:320:13:34

It's hard, third year. But, yeah, I'm enjoying it.

0:13:340:13:36

Very good indeed.

0:13:360:13:37

And what do you get up to, aside from your hard studies?

0:13:370:13:40

I like to bake and I like to rock climb sometimes as well.

0:13:400:13:46

Very nice. You could bake rock cakes. Sorry...

0:13:460:13:48

-Yeah, I have actually.

-Ah, there you go.

0:13:480:13:51

Very good. Now, Zoe. Bond actors.

0:13:510:13:53

I'm not very good at this.

0:13:530:13:55

I know a few up there but I think maybe I'm just going to play it safe

0:13:570:14:01

and go with Halle Berry.

0:14:010:14:03

OK, Halle Berry.

0:14:030:14:04

93 is your target.

0:14:040:14:06

If you can score that or less,

0:14:060:14:08

you are through to the next round. There's your red line.

0:14:080:14:10

Let's see how far down the column you get with Halle Berry.

0:14:100:14:13

Very well done.

0:14:160:14:17

46. APPLAUSE

0:14:200:14:23

Which takes your total up to 55.

0:14:230:14:24

Yeah, stars in Die Another Day, of course,

0:14:260:14:28

and won an Oscar for Monster's Ball.

0:14:280:14:30

Thank you, Richard.

0:14:300:14:31

-Ellis.

-Hello.

0:14:310:14:32

Ellis, remind us what you do.

0:14:320:14:34

I'm a student and I work part time in a pharmacy.

0:14:340:14:37

And what sort of student are you?

0:14:370:14:39

What are you studying?

0:14:390:14:40

Professional and creative writing and English literature.

0:14:400:14:43

Do you get any good ideas for creative writing in the pharmacy?

0:14:430:14:46

People coming in, maybe asking for medicines

0:14:460:14:48

that they haven't tried before or...

0:14:480:14:49

-LAUGHTER

-Well, I'm studying crime fiction.

0:14:490:14:52

That's fun. Crime fiction.

0:14:520:14:54

-It's all right.

-What do you mean, "It's all right"?

0:14:540:14:57

LAUGHTER

0:14:570:14:58

Oh, it could be fabulous.

0:14:580:15:00

So what's the longest story you have written so far?

0:15:000:15:03

-Um, just focusing on short stories.

-OK.

0:15:030:15:06

Started writing the start of a novel.

0:15:060:15:09

I haven't touched it, really, but I have started.

0:15:090:15:12

LAUGHING: That's the main thing.

0:15:120:15:15

OK, so there you are - you're on 5.

0:15:150:15:17

If you can score 97 or less...

0:15:170:15:19

-Hm.

-..you're into the next round.

0:15:190:15:20

Would you like to talk us through that board?

0:15:200:15:23

Er, well, I recognise a lot of them.

0:15:230:15:26

Judi Dench is the top. Er...

0:15:260:15:29

Yeah. Well, the one that I'm going to go with is Christoph Waltz.

0:15:300:15:33

Christoph Waltz or "Vaultz" or "Valtz".

0:15:330:15:37

There is your red line. If you can get below that with Christoph Waltz,

0:15:370:15:39

you are through to the next round.

0:15:390:15:41

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

0:15:410:15:44

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

0:15:460:15:48

APPLAUSE 9.

0:15:530:15:54

9, very well done.

0:15:540:15:56

Taking your total up to 14,

0:15:560:15:58

the lowest scorers of the first round.

0:15:580:16:00

Well done, Ellis. Yeah, he plays Blofeld in Spectre.

0:16:000:16:02

-Oh, he's a terrifying actor as well, isn't he?

-He is.

-Terrific.

0:16:020:16:05

-Found success very late in life, as well.

-Yeah.

0:16:050:16:08

Lots of acting in Germany,

0:16:080:16:09

but now he's brilliant in everything he's in.

0:16:090:16:11

Now, we'll leave the top row

0:16:110:16:12

cos there's a couple of pointless answers up there.

0:16:120:16:14

We'll take a look at the second row.

0:16:140:16:16

We've had Cleese and Bardem.

0:16:160:16:17

There's Minnie Driver there, of course.

0:16:170:16:19

She would have scored you 25 points.

0:16:190:16:20

On the third row there, we've had Rosamund Pike.

0:16:200:16:23

Next to Rosamund Pike?

0:16:230:16:24

-Albert Finney.

-Albert Finney would have scored you 5 points.

0:16:240:16:27

He's in Skyfall.

0:16:270:16:28

He's been nominated five times for an Oscar, never won an Oscar,

0:16:280:16:31

-Albert Finney.

-Wow.

-Amazingly.

-Mm.

0:16:310:16:34

Bottom row?

0:16:340:16:35

-Telly Savalas.

-Telly Savalas. Also played Blofeld.

0:16:350:16:38

He would have scored you 46 points. Next to him?

0:16:380:16:41

Er, Benicio del Toro.

0:16:410:16:42

Benicio del Toro would have scored you 5.

0:16:420:16:44

-We've had Halle Berry.

-Halle Berry.

-Then we have...?

0:16:440:16:47

Oh, I forget. Sean Connery.

0:16:470:16:49

Now, Sean Connery...

0:16:490:16:51

We've got Judi Dench at the top there as well.

0:16:510:16:53

Who do you think scored most out of those two?

0:16:530:16:56

That you're asking me suggests that maybe Judi Dench did?

0:16:560:16:59

Well, Judi Dench would have scored you 83,

0:16:590:17:02

Sean Connery 85.

0:17:020:17:04

-85.

-Wow.

0:17:040:17:05

Just tops Judi Dench - only just though.

0:17:050:17:08

So we just have the two pointless answers up the top there.

0:17:080:17:11

-It's Topol.

-Topol?

-Topol is the second picture there.

0:17:110:17:15

And very well done if you got the fourth one at the top there,

0:17:150:17:18

who is Giancarlo Giannini from Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace.

0:17:180:17:22

Was nominated for an Oscar for Seven Beauties.

0:17:220:17:24

Terrific answer if you got that at home. Very well played.

0:17:240:17:26

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:17:260:17:28

So, at the end of our first round,

0:17:280:17:29

the pair who will be heading home with their high score of 103...

0:17:290:17:32

I'm sorry, Colm and Clint, 'tis you.

0:17:320:17:33

But we'll see you again next time.

0:17:330:17:35

Look forward to your return very much.

0:17:350:17:37

In the meantime, thanks very much for playing. Colm and Clint.

0:17:370:17:40

APPLAUSE

0:17:400:17:41

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

0:17:420:17:46

Well, we're now down to two pairs but well done, everyone.

0:17:520:17:54

Some lovely low scoring in that round.

0:17:540:17:56

Barbara - yours, I think, was the lowest score.

0:17:560:17:58

4 points for Julian Fellowes.

0:17:580:18:00

Wonderful scoring there. And Ellis and Ellen -

0:18:000:18:03

there we are. There's our answer.

0:18:030:18:05

This is what Round Two looks like. LAUGHTER

0:18:050:18:07

So this is what you would have seen last time.

0:18:070:18:09

Anyway, best of luck to all three pairs.

0:18:090:18:11

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:18:110:18:13

Can you all decide in your pairs

0:18:140:18:16

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

0:18:160:18:18

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

0:18:180:18:21

OK. And the question concerns...

0:18:250:18:28

Anniversaries In 2016. Richard?

0:18:310:18:34

We are going to show you six clues on each pass

0:18:340:18:36

to things that are celebrating their anniversary in 2016.

0:18:360:18:40

Just need to give us the most obscure answer, please.

0:18:400:18:42

It's going to be six on the first pass, six on the second.

0:18:420:18:44

12 in all to have a go at home. Very best of luck.

0:18:440:18:46

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

0:18:460:18:49

And here they are.

0:18:490:18:50

I'll read all of those again.

0:19:220:19:24

There we are. Ellis.

0:19:490:19:52

We come to you first.

0:19:520:19:54

Yeah.

0:19:540:19:55

I only know two and I'm going to go for the one

0:19:550:19:59

that I think is the lowest, which is the bottom one,

0:19:590:20:02

and say Roald Dahl.

0:20:020:20:03

Roald Dahl, says Ellis.

0:20:030:20:05

Roald Dahl. Let's see if that's right,

0:20:050:20:07

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

0:20:070:20:09

42 for Roald Dahl. APPLAUSE

0:20:150:20:17

Born in 1916, Roald Dahl.

0:20:220:20:24

So would have been 100 in 2016.

0:20:240:20:26

There we are. Thank you. RICHARD MAKES A KNOCKING SOUND

0:20:260:20:28

Very good.

0:20:280:20:30

-Yeah.

-Good.

-Maths.

0:20:300:20:32

-Maths?

-Yeah.

0:20:320:20:34

Maths in action.

0:20:340:20:36

-There you are.

-My new series.

0:20:360:20:38

Oh! I would watch that.

0:20:380:20:41

On catch-up, probably.

0:20:410:20:42

I'd watch it on +1.

0:20:420:20:45

-On, like, 32 speed.

-Yeah.

0:20:450:20:48

-"I loved it. Very short."

-LAUGHTER

0:20:480:20:51

Anne, what would you like to go for?

0:20:510:20:53

I think I've got a good idea about them all,

0:20:530:20:55

so it's a case of which I think is the lowest.

0:20:550:20:58

So the second one is the Easter Rebellion.

0:20:580:21:01

-The Easter Rebellion...

-Yes.

-..says Anne. The Easter Rebellion.

0:21:010:21:04

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

0:21:040:21:07

It's right.

0:21:090:21:10

13, very well done. APPLAUSE

0:21:160:21:18

Good answer, Anne.

0:21:180:21:20

13 for the Easter Rebellion.

0:21:200:21:21

Yeah, 100 years since the Easter Rising or the Easter Rebellion.

0:21:220:21:25

Absolutely.

0:21:250:21:27

Or the "Eater Rebellion", as Anne would call it.

0:21:270:21:29

LAUGHTER

0:21:290:21:31

I was once in one of those cafes when there was...

0:21:310:21:34

They weren't happy, I'll tell you that for one thing.

0:21:340:21:37

-The Eater Rebellion.

-Yeah.

0:21:370:21:39

Oh. "These dough balls are freezing!"

0:21:390:21:41

Zoe. This board is all yours.

0:21:440:21:47

If you felt like it, you could go through all of those.

0:21:470:21:50

The one just above the bottom one, I can kind of get the gist of it,

0:21:500:21:55

but I'm not going to go for it just in case it's wrong.

0:21:550:21:57

So I'm just going to play it safe

0:21:570:21:59

-and go for Shakespeare for the English playwright.

-OK.

0:21:590:22:02

Shakespeare says Zoe.

0:22:020:22:04

Let's see how safe it is.

0:22:040:22:06

It's right. Yes, I feared that might be that safe. 80.

0:22:100:22:13

APPLAUSE Well, better than 100.

0:22:130:22:16

Yeah, well played to our 100 there.

0:22:160:22:18

The 400th anniversary of his death, Shakespeare.

0:22:180:22:21

Now let's take a look at the rest of these.

0:22:210:22:24

What's that top one, Xander, do you think?

0:22:240:22:26

-Cannes.

-It is the Cannes Film Festival.

0:22:260:22:28

Would have scored 38 points.

0:22:280:22:29

It's going to be the 70th anniversary

0:22:290:22:31

of the Cannes Film Festival in 2016.

0:22:310:22:33

The society for the top 2% of the population.

0:22:330:22:35

-Mensa.

-It is Mensa.

0:22:350:22:37

Yes, that's the 70th anniversary as well

0:22:370:22:39

and would have scored you 70 points.

0:22:390:22:41

I have to say, you know, this top 2% of the population,

0:22:410:22:44

it's a bit elitist. What about the other 97% of us?

0:22:440:22:47

LAUGHTER

0:22:470:22:49

I mean... You know what I mean?

0:22:490:22:51

And the name of the Russian?

0:22:520:22:54

He is, Yuri...

0:22:540:22:56

-He is.

-Guh... Guh-guh... Gens...

0:22:560:22:59

Gaga...?

0:22:590:23:00

What's he called?

0:23:000:23:01

-MULTIPLE PEOPLE:

-Gagarin.

-Gagarin.

0:23:010:23:02

-Yuri Gagarin is the right answer.

-Yuri Gagarin, that's the one.

0:23:020:23:05

And it's 56 points for that. It's the 55th anniversary of that.

0:23:050:23:09

-The traditional 55th anniversary that we always celebrate.

-Ah, yes.

0:23:090:23:14

Mm. Thank you very much indeed. OK, so let's look at the scores.

0:23:140:23:17

We're halfway through the round.

0:23:170:23:18

13, Anne and Barbara, very well done indeed.

0:23:180:23:20

Lovely low score there.

0:23:200:23:22

Then up to 42, where we find Ellis and Ellen,

0:23:220:23:24

and now up to 80. Yeah, Zoe and Alex.

0:23:240:23:26

Little bit ahead there.

0:23:260:23:27

So, Alex, a nice low score from you might keep you in the game.

0:23:270:23:30

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

0:23:300:23:32

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:23:320:23:34

OK, let's put six more clues up on the board.

0:23:360:23:38

And here they come.

0:23:380:23:40

I'm going to read those all again.

0:24:050:24:07

Alex. It's got to be a low scorer.

0:24:310:24:34

Yeah, so I know a couple of them that I think would be quite high.

0:24:340:24:38

Um...

0:24:380:24:39

So I'm going to go one I think might be lower.

0:24:390:24:42

So I'm going to go with the Great Fire of London for historic event.

0:24:420:24:46

OK, the Great Fire of London, says Alex.

0:24:460:24:48

No red line for you, as you're the highest scorers.

0:24:480:24:50

Let's see how many of our 100 people said the Great Fire of London.

0:24:500:24:53

76.

0:24:580:25:00

APPLAUSE

0:25:000:25:02

Takes your total up to an unbeatable 156.

0:25:020:25:05

Yeah, the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.

0:25:050:25:09

Thank you very much indeed. Now, Barbara.

0:25:090:25:11

Oh.

0:25:130:25:14

I'm not sure about two of them...

0:25:140:25:16

..so I think I'll go for the bottom one, which is Concorde.

0:25:180:25:22

Concorde, says Barbara.

0:25:220:25:23

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

0:25:230:25:25

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

0:25:250:25:27

75.

0:25:320:25:33

Takes your total up to 88.

0:25:350:25:36

Yeah. Well played, Barbara.

0:25:360:25:38

You know, it went 1,350mph, Concorde could fly.

0:25:380:25:42

You know it could do London to New York in under three hours?

0:25:420:25:45

Isn't that amazing?

0:25:450:25:47

It's even faster than you...

0:25:470:25:48

-That's really very fast, isn't it?

-That's REALLY fast.

0:25:480:25:51

It's like going from London to Liverpool or something.

0:25:510:25:55

-Yeah.

-Incredible. There it is.

-It is incredible.

0:25:550:25:58

Ellen, what would you like to go for?

0:25:580:26:00

You can talk us through the board, if you like.

0:26:000:26:02

-Well, I can't.

-LAUGHTER

0:26:020:26:04

I mean, I would have guessed...

0:26:040:26:06

I know it's Battle of Hastings,

0:26:060:26:08

I would've guessed Bobby Charlton, maybe, for the World Cup one,

0:26:080:26:12

and maybe the M6 as the top one.

0:26:120:26:13

But I'm going to go with Battle of Hastings

0:26:130:26:16

-just because I know that one's right.

-OK, well, listen.

0:26:160:26:18

-You're through anyway so it doesn't matter.

-Oh.

0:26:180:26:20

No red line for that reason. So Battle of Hastings, says Ellen.

0:26:200:26:23

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

0:26:230:26:26

65?!

0:26:300:26:32

APPLAUSE

0:26:320:26:33

Wow. I mean, that...

0:26:350:26:37

That scored less than Concorde.

0:26:370:26:38

I know, that's ridiculous.

0:26:380:26:40

OK, 107 is your total.

0:26:400:26:42

-How extraordinary.

-You're not impressed with that?

0:26:420:26:46

I would have hoped our 100, a few more of them might have got that.

0:26:460:26:49

To be fair, it's 950 years ago. Come on.

0:26:490:26:52

LAUGHTER

0:26:520:26:54

Let's have a look through the rest of these.

0:26:540:26:56

The motorway - it's not the M6.

0:26:560:26:57

-M25.

-M25, yep.

0:26:570:27:00

Good scorer that - 30 points.

0:27:000:27:02

Not Bobby Charlton, but Bobby Moore.

0:27:020:27:05

Bobby Moore. That would have scored you 57.

0:27:050:27:07

And the city that hosted the first modern Olympics?

0:27:070:27:09

-Athens.

-Athens.

0:27:090:27:11

And that would have scored 42.

0:27:110:27:12

-So the best answer on the board was the M25.

-Wow.

0:27:120:27:15

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:27:150:27:16

So, at the end of our second round,

0:27:160:27:18

I'm afraid it's Alex and Zoe we're saying goodbye to.

0:27:180:27:20

But we will see you again next time.

0:27:200:27:22

Thanks very much for playing, Alex and Zoe.

0:27:220:27:24

APPLAUSE

0:27:240:27:25

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

0:27:280:27:32

Well, congratulations Ellis and Ellen, Anne and Barbara.

0:27:360:27:39

You are now in the head-to-head, one step closer to the final

0:27:390:27:42

and a chance to play for our jackpot,

0:27:420:27:44

which is still standing at £1,000.

0:27:440:27:47

Well, you know the deal here.

0:27:470:27:49

This time, you're allowed to confer and the first pair

0:27:490:27:51

to win two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:27:510:27:53

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

0:27:530:27:57

OK, here is your first question.

0:28:020:28:04

And it is all about...

0:28:040:28:05

French Words And Phrases Used In English, Richard?

0:28:080:28:10

Yeah, we're going to show you five pictures now which represent

0:28:100:28:13

French words which have commonly entered the English language.

0:28:130:28:16

We're also going to give you the initial of each word.

0:28:160:28:18

Can you tell us what the word is, please?

0:28:180:28:20

OK, let's reveal our five phrases.

0:28:200:28:22

And here they come.

0:28:220:28:24

We've got...

0:28:240:28:25

OK. So, Ellis and Ellen, we come to you first.

0:28:530:28:57

Feel free to confer.

0:28:570:28:59

OK. Well, we know the two most obvious ones on there

0:28:590:29:02

but it's better than getting one wrong.

0:29:020:29:04

So we're going to go for C, cul-de-sac.

0:29:040:29:06

OK. Cul-de-sac, C. Cul-de-sac.

0:29:060:29:10

Now then, Anne and Barbara, talk us through that board.

0:29:100:29:13

Well A is Vol-au-vent.

0:29:140:29:16

B is Art Nouveau.

0:29:160:29:18

E is en masse.

0:29:180:29:20

We can't get D, which is really irritating.

0:29:200:29:23

So we'll go for B.

0:29:230:29:24

You're going for Art Nouveau.

0:29:240:29:26

-Please.

-B. OK.

0:29:260:29:28

So, we have cul-de-sac and we have Art Nouveau.

0:29:280:29:30

Ellis and Ellen went for cul-de-sac for C.

0:29:300:29:32

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

0:29:320:29:36

It's right.

0:29:380:29:39

Quite a high one there. 63 for cul-de-sac.

0:29:420:29:44

APPLAUSE

0:29:440:29:46

Anne and Barbara, meanwhile, have gone for Art Nouveau for B.

0:29:470:29:50

Let's see if that's right,

0:29:500:29:51

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

0:29:510:29:54

It's right, and it wins you the point.

0:29:570:29:59

Very well done. Art Nouveau, still going down...

0:29:590:30:02

to 21!

0:30:020:30:03

Which means, after one question, Anne and Barbara, you are up 1-0.

0:30:070:30:11

Yeah, well played. Let's take a look at the rest of these.

0:30:110:30:13

You're right about vol-au-vent.

0:30:130:30:15

Big score, though. Would have scored you 78 points.

0:30:150:30:17

They do look nice.

0:30:170:30:19

I love that - custard with ham in.

0:30:190:30:20

-It's nice, isn't it?

-LAUGHTER

0:30:200:30:22

It means flight in the wind, vol-au-vent.

0:30:220:30:25

-Yeah, I know.

-Slightly racy.

-You can imagine, after those, couldn't you?

0:30:250:30:28

Yeah. LAUGHTER

0:30:280:30:29

Now, we'll leave D for a second cos I know you didn't know it.

0:30:290:30:32

E is the best answer. You did know that.

0:30:320:30:33

En masse, you're right.

0:30:330:30:34

-Would have scored 20 points.

-Oh.

0:30:340:30:36

Now, you were looking concerned at the board as well.

0:30:360:30:38

Were you having trouble with D as well?

0:30:380:30:40

Well, I think I've worked out what it is

0:30:400:30:42

but why we should have a picture of Trudie Styler eating a salad...

0:30:420:30:44

LAUGHTER

0:30:440:30:46

-It's simply somebody enjoying their food.

-Oh, I see.

0:30:460:30:48

And what do we say when someone enjoys their food?

0:30:480:30:50

-ALL:

-Bon appetit.

-Bon appetit.

0:30:500:30:52

-You see, I thought it was to do...

-20 points.

0:30:520:30:54

I can see she's enjoying it. I can see that.

0:30:540:30:56

I thought it was to do with the fact it was all salad based.

0:30:560:30:59

-Yes,

-I

-did.

-Oh, did you?

0:30:590:31:01

-Cos that's the most delicious food...

-It is.

0:31:010:31:03

-..of all, kids.

-Mmm-mmm-mmm.

0:31:030:31:06

I tell you what I really love is that really bitter red leaf.

0:31:060:31:11

Lollo rosso, is that what that is?

0:31:110:31:13

-Steak? No, thank you.

-No, uh-uh. LAUGHTER

0:31:130:31:15

Very good indeed. Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:31:170:31:19

So here comes your second question.

0:31:190:31:21

Ellis and Ellen, you have to win this one to stay in the game,

0:31:210:31:23

so good luck with that.

0:31:230:31:24

Our second question in the head-to-head round today concerns...

0:31:240:31:27

Book Characters, Richard?

0:31:290:31:30

We're going to show you the first names now,

0:31:300:31:32

or commonly used names, of characters in books.

0:31:320:31:34

Also going to show you the authors of those books.

0:31:340:31:37

You need to tell us the book in which

0:31:370:31:38

-these characters first appeared, please.

-OK.

0:31:380:31:41

In which books did these characters first appear?

0:31:410:31:44

And here is our list of five characters. We have got...

0:31:440:31:47

I'm going to read those one last time.

0:32:040:32:06

There we are.

0:32:200:32:21

Anne and Barbara, you'll go first.

0:32:210:32:23

We'll go for number two, The Help.

0:32:230:32:26

Number two, The Help. Number two, The Help.

0:32:260:32:29

Ellis and Ellen, that board is all yours -

0:32:290:32:32

talk us through it if you can.

0:32:320:32:33

The top one's Of Mice And Men.

0:32:330:32:36

Suzanne Collins is The Hunger Games.

0:32:360:32:39

Tiny Tim, the Charles Dickens one is A Christmas Carol.

0:32:390:32:43

-And I think we're going to go with the last one...

-Yeah.

0:32:430:32:47

..which we think is The Borrowers.

0:32:470:32:50

The Borrowers, say Ellis and Ellen.

0:32:500:32:53

So, in the order they were given,

0:32:530:32:54

we have The Help from Anne and Barbara.

0:32:540:32:56

Let's see if that's right,

0:32:560:32:57

let's see how people said The Help for the Kathryn Stockett answer.

0:32:570:33:00

It's right.

0:33:040:33:05

Oh, it's a good answer, as well.

0:33:090:33:11

Look at that! 3! APPLAUSE

0:33:110:33:12

Very well done indeed.

0:33:140:33:16

Ellis and Ellen have gone for The Borrowers

0:33:190:33:22

for Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig and Pipkin.

0:33:220:33:24

Let's see if that's right and, if it is,

0:33:240:33:25

let's see how many people said it.

0:33:250:33:27

No, I'm so sorry.

0:33:300:33:32

I'm so sorry, Ellis and Ellen, that is an incorrect answer,

0:33:320:33:34

which means Anne and Barbara, brilliant answer from you,

0:33:340:33:38

you win that question and you are straight through to the final, 2-0.

0:33:380:33:41

Yes, well played, you did know all the other answers,

0:33:410:33:43

but nothing you could have done to beat The Help. Terrific answer.

0:33:430:33:46

Great head-to-head, Anne and Barbara, well played.

0:33:460:33:48

It's not The Borrowers, it is...?

0:33:480:33:50

-Watership Down.

-Watership Down is the answer. Unlucky.

0:33:500:33:53

Would have scored you 24 points.

0:33:530:33:56

You were right about Of Mice And Men.

0:33:560:33:58

At the top there, that would have scored 33.

0:33:590:34:02

You were right about The Hunger Games as well,

0:34:020:34:05

that would have scored 30.

0:34:050:34:06

And, of course, you were right about A Christmas Carol.

0:34:060:34:09

And that would have scored 51.

0:34:090:34:11

So The Help far and away the best answer there.

0:34:110:34:13

-Unbeatable.

-There we are.

0:34:130:34:14

Thank you very much indeed. So the pair leaving us

0:34:140:34:16

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

0:34:160:34:18

I'm afraid it's Ellis and Ellen. I'm so sorry.

0:34:180:34:20

But what a brilliant show we've had from you this time.

0:34:200:34:23

Completely vindicated after last time.

0:34:230:34:25

It's been wonderful having you on both shows,

0:34:250:34:27

thank you so much for playing. Ellis and Ellen.

0:34:270:34:29

APPLAUSE

0:34:290:34:30

But, for Anne and Barbara, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:310:34:35

Congratulations, Anne and Barbara!

0:34:380:34:40

You've seen off all the competition

0:34:400:34:42

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:34:420:34:44

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:34:500:34:52

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

0:34:520:34:55

There it is. Well, very well done indeed.

0:34:550:34:57

To come from behind like that -

0:34:570:34:59

you weren't the golden pair in the head-to-head there.

0:34:590:35:01

And a very decisive 2-0 win there, fantastic.

0:35:010:35:04

The Help was a great answer.

0:35:040:35:06

What would you like to come up in this last round?

0:35:060:35:09

-Books.

-Books.

0:35:090:35:11

-Yeah.

-Words.

0:35:110:35:13

OK. Well, as always, you get to choose your category

0:35:130:35:15

from the four we put up on the board.

0:35:150:35:16

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

0:35:160:35:18

Today's selection is this...

0:35:180:35:20

-Oh. US crime... No.

-No. It's got to be...

0:35:290:35:32

Has it got to be music?

0:35:320:35:33

Do you know anything about music groups that have included spouses?

0:35:330:35:36

-No.

-Let's go for that one, then!

0:35:360:35:39

-Music Groups That Have Included Spouses?

-Is that OK?

0:35:390:35:41

-Because we can guess.

-Yes.

0:35:410:35:43

-Well, yes.

-We can always guess.

0:35:430:35:46

Can we say "The Beatles" for all of them?

0:35:460:35:48

You can do what you like.

0:35:480:35:50

-But the questions we're going to put in front of you...

-Right.

0:35:500:35:53

..will be music groups that included spouses, OK?

0:35:530:35:56

OK, we're looking for any UK top 40 single up to December 2015, please,

0:35:560:36:00

by any of the following groups, no solo efforts or anything like that,

0:36:000:36:03

but by these groups, double A-sides will count as separate answers.

0:36:030:36:06

Three very different bands there -

0:36:130:36:15

Wings, New Order, White Stripes.

0:36:150:36:17

And that is according to officialcharts.com.

0:36:170:36:20

Very best of luck.

0:36:200:36:21

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:36:210:36:24

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

0:36:240:36:27

and all you need to win that jackpot

0:36:270:36:28

is for just one of those answers to be pointless.

0:36:280:36:30

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

0:36:300:36:32

We're putting 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:36:320:36:34

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:36:340:36:36

Mull Of Kintyre?

0:36:360:36:38

We've got to say Barbara Ann, haven't we,

0:36:380:36:40

-even though we know it's wrong?

-Yes.

-We've got to say Barbara Ann.

0:36:400:36:43

What else did Wings do?

0:36:430:36:45

-We've got 47 seconds left, Barbara, come on.

-47 seconds!

0:36:490:36:52

Um, what was that...?

0:36:520:36:54

-New Order.

-I can tell you who the spouse was in Wings,

0:36:540:36:57

but that's not going to help.

0:36:570:36:58

I don't know who New Order is.

0:36:580:37:01

And I've only heard of The White Stripes.

0:37:010:37:04

What's a really silly single that they would hate to sing?

0:37:040:37:07

-And we can embarrass them.

-What, Wings?

0:37:070:37:10

There's No-One Quite Like Grandma?

0:37:100:37:12

No. No, that's terrible.

0:37:120:37:15

How about I've Got A Brand-new Combine Harvester?

0:37:150:37:18

Good one. Let's have that one.

0:37:180:37:20

And I think we should have that famous, famous record,

0:37:200:37:23

Alexander And Richard.

0:37:230:37:24

-No.

-Don't you think?

-Yes, that's right.

-Or Richard And Alexander?

0:37:250:37:28

Or we could have them both.

0:37:280:37:30

Richard And Alexander sounds nicer. The other way round.

0:37:300:37:33

-Yes.

-Two seconds, this is rubbish.

0:37:330:37:35

-Alexander And Richard.

-Your time is now up.

0:37:350:37:39

LAUGHTER There we are.

0:37:390:37:41

I now need your three answers,

0:37:410:37:42

and if you could say which group sang these..."songs".

0:37:420:37:46

Mull of Kintyre by Wings.

0:37:460:37:48

-Mull of Kintyre.

-Which we know is right.

0:37:480:37:50

Barbara Ann by New Order.

0:37:500:37:52

Barbara Ann by New Order.

0:37:520:37:53

Alexander And Richard Sing The Smurfs.

0:37:530:37:56

Yes, Alexander And Richard Sing The Smurfs.

0:37:560:37:58

-That's our final answer.

-LAUGHTER

0:37:580:38:01

And who wrote...? Who is that by?

0:38:010:38:03

-The White Stripes.

-The White Stripes.

0:38:030:38:05

By The White Stripes - Alexander And Richard Sing The Smurfs. OK.

0:38:050:38:09

Of those three answers... LAUGHTER

0:38:090:38:12

..er, which do you think is your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:38:130:38:17

-I think it's Alexander and Richard.

-I think so.

0:38:170:38:19

OK, Alexander And Richard Sing The Smurfs,

0:38:190:38:21

we'll put that last, shall we?

0:38:210:38:23

Least likely to be pointless?

0:38:230:38:25

-Mull of Kintyre.

-I think, yeah,

0:38:250:38:26

someone would have got that, wouldn't they?

0:38:260:38:28

Mull of Kintyre, we'll put first.

0:38:280:38:30

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

0:38:300:38:32

Here they are. We have got...

0:38:320:38:34

Looks good.

0:38:380:38:40

It looks good up there.

0:38:400:38:41

I've never meant this more, but best of luck.

0:38:410:38:44

LAUGHTER

0:38:440:38:45

What would you do if you won that?

0:38:460:38:48

What if one of these songs...

0:38:480:38:50

..turns out to have been a top 40 hit for one of these bands

0:38:520:38:55

and you win 1,000 quid? What would you do with your spoils?

0:38:550:38:58

Anne, you first.

0:38:580:38:59

First of all, I'd probably need some medical attention.

0:38:590:39:03

And then I'd have piano lessons.

0:39:030:39:05

Very good. Barbara?

0:39:050:39:06

I'd put it towards a power pack

0:39:060:39:08

so that I don't have to be tweaked all the time in this chair.

0:39:080:39:11

Very good indeed.

0:39:110:39:12

Very good. Well, very best of... BEST of luck.

0:39:120:39:15

Let's find out if any of these are right.

0:39:150:39:18

Um, Mull Of Kintyre. Mull Of Kintyre by Wings.

0:39:180:39:21

Remember, in this case, we were looking for Wings UK top 40 singles.

0:39:210:39:24

This is your least confident answer.

0:39:240:39:26

Only one of them has to be pointless for you to win.

0:39:260:39:28

Let's find out how many of our 100 people,

0:39:280:39:30

for the jackpot of £1,000, said Mull of Kintyre.

0:39:300:39:33

It's right.

0:39:360:39:37

Down it goes through the 50s, through the 40s, into the 30s.

0:39:400:39:44

35. 35 for Mull of Kintyre. APPLAUSE

0:39:440:39:47

Not a bad answer.

0:39:470:39:48

Not a pointless answer, though. Two more shots at today's jackpot.

0:39:510:39:54

Your next answer was Barbara Ann.

0:39:540:39:56

In this case, we were looking for New Order top 40 singles.

0:39:560:39:58

If it's right and if it goes down to zero, it will win you £1,000.

0:39:580:40:02

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Barbara Ann for new Order.

0:40:020:40:05

Ah!

0:40:070:40:09

-Should've been Anne Barbara.

-It should've been.

0:40:100:40:13

Of the two remaining answers,

0:40:130:40:14

that was the most likely one to have been the surprise,

0:40:140:40:17

but I'm afraid that has been cruelly ripped away from us.

0:40:170:40:21

Which means you only have one more chance to win today's jackpot.

0:40:210:40:24

Everything is now riding...

0:40:240:40:26

on Alexander And Richard Sing The Smurfs by The White Stripes.

0:40:260:40:31

OK. This was your most confident answer.

0:40:310:40:34

Let's find out if you're going to win the jackpot of £1,000 with this.

0:40:340:40:37

Has to be pointless, obviously, if that's going to happen.

0:40:370:40:40

Alexander And Richard Sing The Smurfs.

0:40:400:40:43

Is it pointless?

0:40:430:40:44

No.

0:40:470:40:48

Ah, well, there we are.

0:40:490:40:51

Well...

0:40:520:40:54

..I have to say, faced with a nigh-on impossible board,

0:40:560:40:59

-you did very, very well indeed.

-Thank you.

-A brave attempt.

0:40:590:41:02

Unfortunately, you didn't find that all-important pointless answer,

0:41:020:41:05

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

0:41:050:41:07

That will roll over to the next time,

0:41:070:41:09

but it has been brilliant having you on the show,

0:41:090:41:11

you've been wonderful contestants

0:41:110:41:12

and a really decisive and impressive win in the head-to-head round.

0:41:120:41:15

So very well done.

0:41:150:41:16

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

0:41:160:41:19

-Anne and Barbara, everyone.

-Thank you. Thank you.

0:41:190:41:21

APPLAUSE

0:41:210:41:23

Unlucky. Of course, Alexander And Richard Sing The Smurfs

0:41:290:41:32

was famously by The Blue Stripes.

0:41:320:41:34

-Oh!

-It's gutting, isn't it?

0:41:340:41:37

Now, I know people at home

0:41:370:41:39

will definitely have got pointless answers here.

0:41:390:41:41

Big pointless answers for all three groups,

0:41:410:41:43

so if you're a fan of any of these groups,

0:41:430:41:44

I think you would have walked away with the money.

0:41:440:41:46

Let's take a look at them. Wings, we will start with.

0:41:460:41:48

Also, Mull of Kintyre had a double A-side very famously

0:41:540:41:56

with Girls' School and that was a pointless answer as well.

0:41:560:41:59

So very well done if you said that.

0:41:590:42:00

Also could have had Hi, Hi, Hi, Helen Wheels, My Love

0:42:000:42:03

and Old Siam, Sir. All of those pointless answers -

0:42:030:42:05

well done if you said any of those.

0:42:050:42:07

New Order now.

0:42:070:42:08

Some big New Order songs here.

0:42:090:42:11

In fact, every single New Order top 40 hit apart from Blue Monday,

0:42:140:42:18

True Faith, Regret and Temptation -

0:42:180:42:19

every single other one was a pointless answer,

0:42:190:42:22

so if you said any of the others, you would have won the money.

0:42:220:42:24

The White Stripes. A wonderful band, The White Stripes,

0:42:240:42:27

six pointless answers here.

0:42:270:42:29

The other two answers you could've had -

0:42:350:42:37

Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground and You Don't Know What Love Is.

0:42:370:42:39

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

0:42:390:42:41

You've been brilliant throughout the whole show,

0:42:410:42:43

sorry the jackpot round was not to your taste,

0:42:430:42:46

-but great having you here.

-Thank you.

-Thanks very much, Richard.

0:42:460:42:48

Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to you, Anne and Barbara,

0:42:480:42:51

but to echo what Richard says, it's been wonderful having you on.

0:42:510:42:53

Thank you so much for playing. Anne and Barbara!

0:42:530:42:56

APPLAUSE

0:42:560:42:58

Well, sadly, Anne and Barbara didn't win our jackpot today,

0:43:000:43:02

so it rolls over onto the next show, when we will be playing for £2,000.

0:43:020:43:06

CHEERING

0:43:060:43:09

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:43:090:43:11

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:110:43:13

And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:130:43:15

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.
