CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:130:00:16

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

0:00:200:00:23

and a very warm welcome to Pointless -

0:00:230:00:25

the show were obvious answers mean nothing

0:00:250:00:27

and obscure answers mean everything.

0:00:270:00:29

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:290:00:31

And couple number one...

0:00:350:00:36

Hi, I'm Arry and this is Ash, and we're from Nuneaton.

0:00:360:00:39

-Couple number two...

-Hi, my name's Gareth,

0:00:390:00:41

this is my girlfriend, Kelly, and we're from Watford.

0:00:410:00:43

Couple number three...

0:00:430:00:44

Hello, my name's Shani and this is my husband, Carl,

0:00:440:00:47

and we live in Barnsley.

0:00:470:00:48

And finally, couple number four...

0:00:480:00:50

Hello, my name's Annette, this is my friend, Maja,

0:00:500:00:52

and we're from Borehamwood.

0:00:520:00:53

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:530:00:55

Thank you very much to all of you. We'll get to chat to each of you

0:00:580:01:00

throughout the show as it goes along.

0:01:000:01:02

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

0:01:020:01:04

Taxing us like the Revenue, it's my Pointless friend, it's Richard.

0:01:040:01:08

-APPLAUSE

-Hiya. Hey, everybody.

0:01:080:01:11

-Good afternoon to you.

-Good afternoon.

-Now...

0:01:120:01:15

we've got a returning pair here, and it's Maja and Annette,

0:01:150:01:18

who got all the way through to the head-to-head.

0:01:180:01:20

Very impressive performance. But... You'll have spotted this.

0:01:200:01:23

Everyone at home would have spotted this.

0:01:230:01:24

Sort of Pointless history. We've got Ash here and Arry.

0:01:240:01:27

First time ever we've got a pair of contestants who,

0:01:270:01:29

if you put C in front of both of their names,

0:01:290:01:30

you get the name of a famous wholesale warehouse.

0:01:300:01:32

LAUGHTER Oh, that's great, isn't it?

0:01:320:01:35

It's never happened before.

0:01:350:01:36

ALEXANDER LAUGHS

0:01:360:01:38

Can you believe that's never happened before?

0:01:390:01:41

-Can't believe it.

-So weird, isn't it?

0:01:410:01:43

The amount of shows we've done, it's the first time.

0:01:430:01:45

LAUGHTER

0:01:450:01:47

What a joyous thing that is.

0:01:490:01:51

Ah, brilliant. Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:01:510:01:53

Now, listen to this -

0:01:530:01:54

Nadeem and Ayesha didn't win the jackpot last time,

0:01:540:01:56

so we add another £1,000 to that.

0:01:560:01:58

So, today's jackpot starts off...

0:01:580:02:00

..at £2,000.

0:02:010:02:03

There we are.

0:02:030:02:04

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

0:02:060:02:09

So, I mean... You know this anyway,

0:02:140:02:16

but I'm just going to say it again for the fun of it.

0:02:160:02:19

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

0:02:190:02:22

will be eliminated. So your job is to make sure you are not that pair,

0:02:220:02:25

is what I'm saying. Keep those scores down.

0:02:250:02:27

Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:270:02:29

Our first category today...

0:02:290:02:30

..is History.

0:02:310:02:33

It's History. Can you all decide in your pairs,

0:02:330:02:35

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

0:02:350:02:37

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

0:02:370:02:39

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:420:02:45

Crime And Punishment, Richard.

0:02:470:02:49

We're going to show you seven clues on each pass here,

0:02:490:02:51

all about the history of Crime And Punishment.

0:02:510:02:53

Just give us a nice, obscure answer if you can.

0:02:530:02:55

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

0:02:550:02:57

Thanks very much indeed.

0:02:570:02:59

So we're looking for the answers to these clues, essentially.

0:02:590:03:01

Here is our first board of seven clues.

0:03:010:03:03

And they read like this...

0:03:030:03:05

I'll read those again.

0:03:360:03:37

There we are.

0:04:080:04:09

-Arry.

-Yes?

0:04:090:04:11

Good to have you here, Arry.

0:04:110:04:12

-Where have you come from?

-Nuneaton.

0:04:120:04:14

From Nuneaton. What do you do in Nuneaton?

0:04:140:04:16

I'm a field sales rep.

0:04:160:04:18

A field sales rep.

0:04:180:04:19

Can I ask what field, loosely, you are a sales rep in?

0:04:190:04:23

-The tobacco industry.

-I see. The tobacco industry.

0:04:230:04:26

What are your hobbies, Arry?

0:04:260:04:27

I enjoy football. I also collect watches as well.

0:04:270:04:30

-You collect watches?

-I do, yes.

0:04:300:04:32

-How many have you got?

-I currently have a collection of about 12.

0:04:320:04:36

Oh, very nice indeed.

0:04:360:04:38

Very good. OK, Arry, what are you going to go for on our board?

0:04:380:04:42

Um...

0:04:420:04:43

The letter D stands for...

0:04:430:04:46

I'm going to say Dunce.

0:04:460:04:47

Dunce, says Arry. Let's see if that's right.

0:04:470:04:49

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

0:04:490:04:52

-Eee.

-Ah!

0:04:550:04:57

Urgh. 88. APPLAUSE

0:04:570:04:59

88. However, you never know, you might have taken

0:04:590:05:01

the only answer off the board that everyone else knew.

0:05:010:05:03

So 88 might be a good score to have at this stage.

0:05:030:05:05

That is a surprisingly big score for that answer, I would have thought.

0:05:050:05:08

The name comes from the followers of John Duns Scotus,

0:05:080:05:11

who was a Scottish theologian,

0:05:110:05:12

and they were decried for sort of being fools,

0:05:120:05:16

which they were no more or no less than anyone else.

0:05:160:05:18

But that's where it came from.

0:05:180:05:19

There we are. Thank you, Richard. Now, Kelly.

0:05:190:05:23

-Hi.

-Welcome to Pointless.

-Thank you.

-Good to have you here, Kelly.

0:05:230:05:26

Here from Watford. What do you do?

0:05:260:05:27

I work in retail support for a retail finance company.

0:05:270:05:31

Right you are. And what do you like getting up to when work is over?

0:05:310:05:34

In my spare time, if I can, I like to travel.

0:05:340:05:37

So I've been to Australia a few times, Thailand, America...

0:05:370:05:42

Oh, so you do proper travel.

0:05:420:05:43

You save it all up and do a proper, long journey.

0:05:430:05:46

That's it. But we have just recently

0:05:460:05:47

been to Amsterdam for a weekend away.

0:05:470:05:49

OK, well, that makes a change.

0:05:490:05:51

Did you just think, "Oh, maybe city breaks aren't so bad"?

0:05:510:05:53

Yeah, no, it was really good. Really impressed with Amsterdam.

0:05:530:05:55

-It's a lovely city, isn't it?

-Yes.

0:05:550:05:57

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

0:05:570:05:59

I am going to attempt the 18th-century English highwayman

0:05:590:06:03

who rode a horse called Black Bess, and I'm going to go for Dick Turpin.

0:06:030:06:08

Dick Turpin, says Kelly. Let's see if that's right.

0:06:080:06:10

Let's see how many of our 100 people got Dick Turpin.

0:06:100:06:13

It's right. Well, you pass 88.

0:06:150:06:18

59.

0:06:180:06:19

It's all going in the right direction.

0:06:190:06:21

Yeah, born in Essex and trained as a butcher, Dick Turpin.

0:06:240:06:27

When he achieved notoriety, he moved up to Yorkshire.

0:06:270:06:30

He was eventually executed for stealing horses.

0:06:300:06:32

-Don't steal horses, kids. That's the...

-Yeah.

0:06:340:06:36

But he was kind of a folk hero even in his time, wasn't he, Dick Turpin?

0:06:360:06:39

-Yeah, he was.

-Yeah, yeah, interesting.

0:06:390:06:41

Possibly for his sausages. I don't know. I can't remember.

0:06:410:06:44

Yes, they loved his sausages.

0:06:440:06:46

And his surname is an anagram of turnip.

0:06:460:06:48

LAUGHTER

0:06:480:06:50

-Nothing wrong with that.

-Nothing wrong with any of these things.

0:06:500:06:52

There we are. OK, Carl, welcome to Pointless.

0:06:520:06:55

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

0:06:550:06:57

I work at a glass factory.

0:06:570:06:59

Oh, that's fun. What do you do there?

0:06:590:07:01

Well, I'm still a trainee at the minute,

0:07:010:07:03

but I'm studying different ways to make glass jars and glass bottles.

0:07:030:07:07

So do you do any blowing?

0:07:070:07:08

No. It's a bit more modern than that.

0:07:080:07:10

-It's a bit more...

-Yeah.

0:07:100:07:11

Oh, but that's fun. That's good.

0:07:110:07:13

When do you finish your training?

0:07:130:07:15

It's between six months... Things like that.

0:07:150:07:17

At the end of the day, you're SHATTERED, I should think.

0:07:170:07:20

Sorry, that's-that's just... GROANS AND LAUGHTER

0:07:200:07:22

There we go. Good. Laugh it out. Laugh it out.

0:07:220:07:24

OK, Carl, what would you like to go for?

0:07:240:07:28

Er...

0:07:280:07:29

I'm going to have to go for the top one. I think it's Australia.

0:07:290:07:32

Australia. Australia, says Carl.

0:07:320:07:34

Let's see if that's right,

0:07:340:07:36

let's see how many of our 100 people got Australia.

0:07:360:07:39

88 is the high score.

0:07:410:07:42

59 the low.

0:07:420:07:44

74. Lands roughly between.

0:07:440:07:46

74 for Australia.

0:07:480:07:49

Some big scoring going on, isn't there, for some of these?

0:07:490:07:51

Yeah, originally British convicts would be transported to America,

0:07:510:07:55

but after the Declaration Of Independence,

0:07:550:07:57

couldn't do it any more, so Australia.

0:07:570:07:59

-Australia it was.

-Yeah.

0:07:590:08:01

Oh, OK.

0:08:010:08:02

Now, Annette.

0:08:020:08:04

-Hi.

-Welcome back.

-Thank you.

0:08:040:08:05

Welcome back. Our returning pair from the head-to-head.

0:08:050:08:09

Got to have your eyes on the final this time, surely.

0:08:090:08:12

Well, I hope so, but looking at that board, I'm not so sure!

0:08:120:08:14

Well, just remind us what you do, Annette.

0:08:140:08:16

I'm a local government officer from Borehamwood.

0:08:160:08:20

There we are. Now, do you want to talk us through the board?

0:08:200:08:23

No, they'd be sheer guesses, unfortunately.

0:08:230:08:27

But I'll have a guess at Thomas Becket

0:08:270:08:29

was assassinated in St Paul's.

0:08:290:08:31

In St Paul's.

0:08:310:08:32

OK, St Paul's, says Annette.

0:08:320:08:33

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

0:08:330:08:37

Oh, back luck, Annette.

0:08:400:08:41

I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer.

0:08:410:08:43

Scores you 100 points.

0:08:430:08:44

But it's been a very high-scoring round so far,

0:08:440:08:47

so you're not really... You're in pretty good company, still.

0:08:470:08:49

Yeah, sorry, Annette. Not St Paul's, it was Canterbury Cathedral.

0:08:490:08:52

Canterbury was the answer there.

0:08:520:08:54

Would have scored 39 points.

0:08:540:08:55

Now, in law, a mulct is another name for a fine.

0:08:570:09:01

Very well done if you said that. 4 points if you did.

0:09:010:09:04

-LAUGHING:

-I had a guess at this next one.

0:09:040:09:06

The 19th-century prison ship named after the Marvel...

0:09:060:09:09

I thought... "Iron Man?"

0:09:090:09:10

-Because you would think...

-Yeah, clapped in.

-Exactly.

0:09:100:09:13

But it's not, of course. When you hear the answer...

0:09:130:09:15

-Hulk.

-Ah, of course.

0:09:150:09:17

That would have scored you 8 points.

0:09:170:09:19

The legal term there for unlawful imprisonment.

0:09:190:09:21

The answer is... You have the...

0:09:210:09:22

-Body.

-Body. Yep.

0:09:220:09:24

And that would have scored 27.

0:09:240:09:26

So, best answer up there - fine.

0:09:260:09:27

Thanks, Richard. Well, we're halfway through the round,

0:09:270:09:30

so let's take a look at those scores.

0:09:300:09:31

59 is the lowest score of the pass.

0:09:310:09:33

So Kelly and Gareth looking pretty strong at this point.

0:09:330:09:36

Then up to 74, where we find Carl and Shani.

0:09:360:09:38

88, Arry and Ash.

0:09:380:09:41

And then up to 100, not too far ahead, Annette and Maja.

0:09:410:09:45

Maja, we do need a low-scoring answer from you

0:09:450:09:46

to keep you in the game. Best of luck with that.

0:09:460:09:48

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

0:09:480:09:50

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:09:500:09:53

OK, let's put seven more clues to Crime And Punishment

0:09:550:09:58

up on the board.

0:09:580:09:59

And here they are.

0:09:590:10:01

I'll read those all again.

0:10:330:10:34

Now, then, Maja, welcome back to Pointless.

0:11:040:11:06

-Thank you.

-Here from Borehamwood.

0:11:060:11:09

And you work just next-door to Annette, pretty much.

0:11:090:11:11

Yeah, pretty much. Same floor.

0:11:110:11:13

Who started working there first?

0:11:130:11:15

Me. I've been there 28 years.

0:11:150:11:17

And how long has newcomer Annette...?

0:11:170:11:20

14. About 14.

0:11:200:11:22

Did you hit it off immediately?

0:11:220:11:23

Yeah, we sort of knew each other before.

0:11:230:11:25

Well, I knew Annette...

0:11:250:11:26

Of Annette. She didn't remember me from school. So...

0:11:260:11:29

-Oh, you were at school together?

-Yeah.

0:11:290:11:31

And you said to her, "Oh, Annette, remember me?"

0:11:310:11:33

-And she said, "No."

-I didn't expect she would ever remember me.

0:11:330:11:36

-We were in different years.

-Oh, fair enough.

0:11:360:11:38

-She's older, obviously.

-LAUGHTER

0:11:380:11:40

Thanks(!)

0:11:400:11:42

I like the "obviously".

0:11:420:11:43

Now, Maja, you are our high scorers on 100. We need a low score.

0:11:430:11:46

But look at that - you've got a pristine, box-fresh board there.

0:11:460:11:50

I have. I wish it was the one before, though, to be fair.

0:11:500:11:52

I knew quite a low score on that board.

0:11:520:11:55

It's probably going to be a really obvious one,

0:11:550:11:59

and I think I'm going to say...

0:11:590:12:01

Jack the Ripper is London.

0:12:010:12:03

Jack the Ripper, London, says Maja.

0:12:030:12:05

Well, there's no red line for you as you're the high scorers,

0:12:050:12:07

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

0:12:070:12:10

It's right.

0:12:120:12:13

-Oh!

-And 80 is what it scores.

0:12:130:12:15

Takes your total up to 180.

0:12:180:12:20

Well, there is a scenario in which you could remain with us.

0:12:200:12:23

-Strange that it would score fewer than dunce, I would say.

-Yeah.

0:12:230:12:26

Don't you think?

0:12:260:12:28

I would have thought that would be in the 90s.

0:12:280:12:30

Yeah. Anyway, there we are.

0:12:300:12:33

-Thank you, Richard. Now, Shani, welcome to Pointless.

-Hello.

0:12:330:12:36

What do you do, Shani?

0:12:360:12:37

I work part-time as a therapy assistant,

0:12:370:12:40

but I'm also studying part-time at university as well.

0:12:400:12:42

What are you studying?

0:12:420:12:43

An occupational therapist, that's what I want to be.

0:12:430:12:45

Right you are. So in the same sort of area.

0:12:450:12:47

-Yeah, yeah.

-What do you like to get up to

0:12:470:12:50

when you're not working and studying?

0:12:500:12:51

It doesn't leave you a lot of time.

0:12:510:12:53

No. We've got two Jack Russells, Stan and Ollie.

0:12:530:12:55

-Very nice.

-So we like walking those every day.

0:12:550:12:58

We go to the cinema a lot as well on a weekend.

0:12:580:13:00

Very good. Now, Shani, you're on 74 -

0:13:000:13:03

the high scorers are out of your reach,

0:13:030:13:05

even if you score 100 points, which is great news.

0:13:050:13:07

It is. History is not my strong point at all.

0:13:070:13:11

I'm going to take a guess at the decade and say the '60s.

0:13:120:13:16

-This is for the abolition of the cane in private schools.

-Yeah.

0:13:160:13:19

-OK, let's see. The '60s, says Shani.

-No idea.

0:13:190:13:22

No red line for you because you're already through, which is nice.

0:13:220:13:25

Let's see how many of our 100 people said the '60s. Is it right?

0:13:250:13:28

It's not correct.

0:13:310:13:32

Scores 100 points, takes your total up to 174.

0:13:320:13:35

But you're through.

0:13:350:13:37

-I'll give all the correct answers at the end of the pass, Shani.

-OK.

0:13:370:13:40

-Thanks very much indeed, Richard. Now, Gareth.

-Hi.

0:13:400:13:43

-A warm welcome to Pointless.

-Thank you.

0:13:430:13:45

What keeps you busy in Watford, Gareth?

0:13:450:13:47

Well, I like my films.

0:13:470:13:49

I'm really big into films.

0:13:490:13:50

I'm a big Tottenham Hotspur fan, follow them as much as I can.

0:13:500:13:55

I'm also a really keen fruit and vegetable grower.

0:13:550:13:58

-Are you?

-I am indeed.

-When did you get into that?

0:13:580:14:01

About sort of over a year ago,

0:14:010:14:02

we started planting some seeds and it went on from there.

0:14:020:14:06

So what were the first things you grew?

0:14:060:14:09

-The first year?

-The best things we grew were courgettes.

0:14:090:14:12

I was going to say courgettes.

0:14:120:14:14

Fail-safe. Do you grow any salads, things like that?

0:14:140:14:16

-Yeah, a bit of leaf, rocket...

-Yeah? Very nice.

0:14:160:14:19

Right, Gareth, you're on 59.

0:14:190:14:21

The high scorers, again, out of your reach.

0:14:210:14:23

Doesn't matter what you score here.

0:14:230:14:26

OK, I'm going to go for the top answer...

0:14:260:14:29

Sorry, the top question, Australian bush ranger,

0:14:290:14:31

and I think that's Ned Kelly.

0:14:310:14:32

Ned Kelly, says Gareth.

0:14:320:14:34

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

0:14:340:14:35

but let's see how many of our 100 said Ned Kelly.

0:14:350:14:38

Good answer, Gareth.

0:14:420:14:44

Down it goes. That's not bad at all.

0:14:440:14:46

-37.

-I have a feeling that's our lowest score of the round so far.

0:14:460:14:48

Yes, it is.

0:14:480:14:49

Takes your total up to 96.

0:14:490:14:51

Well played, Gareth. Yeah, he'd previously been played

0:14:510:14:54

by Mick Jagger as well, in another film.

0:14:540:14:56

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:14:560:14:58

Now then, Ash, welcome to Pointless.

0:14:580:15:00

-Hello.

-Good to have you here, Ash.

-Thank you.

0:15:000:15:02

What do you do, Ash?

0:15:020:15:04

Ironically, I work at a cash and carry.

0:15:040:15:06

No! LAUGHTER

0:15:060:15:07

I do. Yeah.

0:15:070:15:09

-What about that?

-No way!

0:15:090:15:11

Ash and Arry. Oh, it's a shame...

0:15:110:15:13

Arry, what would it take for you to be persuaded to go and work with Ash?

0:15:130:15:16

I previously did work there.

0:15:160:15:18

-No!

-Two years ago, yes.

0:15:180:15:20

You are kidding.

0:15:200:15:21

Did everyone say, "Hey, it's Ash and Arry." Or...

0:15:210:15:24

No. You're the first people to pick up on it.

0:15:240:15:26

LAUGHTER

0:15:260:15:28

What?! You guys need to go back there.

0:15:280:15:30

-Yeah.

-Outrageous!

-Oh!

0:15:300:15:32

How fantastic!

0:15:320:15:34

How long have you been there, Ash?

0:15:340:15:35

I've been there five years. It was a part-time job while I was at uni,

0:15:350:15:38

but now I'm a delivery supervisor there, so...

0:15:380:15:40

You're going to stick with it there?

0:15:400:15:41

Well, it's a bit of experience,

0:15:410:15:43

just to build the CV and see what happens.

0:15:430:15:45

-That's fun.

-Yeah, it's not too bad.

0:15:450:15:46

OK, now, Ash, you have a job here, which is to score 91 or less...

0:15:460:15:51

-Yes.

-..to keep you in the game.

0:15:510:15:52

Would you like to talk us through the board?

0:15:520:15:54

I'd love to. Um...

0:15:540:15:57

I'm unsure, though, to be honest.

0:15:570:15:58

I think I've only got one answer that is viable

0:15:580:16:01

and that is Leonardo DiCaprio's film, which is Catch Me If You Can.

0:16:010:16:04

Catch Me If You Can, says Ash.

0:16:040:16:06

Here is your red line. Nice and high.

0:16:060:16:07

But if you can get below that with Catch Me If You Can,

0:16:070:16:10

you are into the next round.

0:16:100:16:11

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

0:16:110:16:14

Look at that. Well done.

0:16:160:16:17

Comfortably through.

0:16:170:16:18

29. Our new lowest score of the round, actually.

0:16:210:16:25

Taking your total up to 117.

0:16:250:16:27

Great score, Ash. Very well played.

0:16:270:16:29

Now, let's go through the rest of this, shall we?

0:16:290:16:32

The future UK Prime Minister who established the police?

0:16:320:16:35

-Robert Peel.

-Robert Peel.

0:16:350:16:37

Bobbies and peelers, of course.

0:16:370:16:38

50 points for that. Do you know the decade in which

0:16:380:16:41

the cane was abolished in private schools?

0:16:410:16:43

The '80s or '90s. Let's say the '90s.

0:16:430:16:45

It WAS the '90s, yeah. The '90s would've scored 5 points.

0:16:450:16:48

It was abolished in state schools in the '80s.

0:16:480:16:50

The gunfight at the OK Corral. Do you know this one?

0:16:500:16:52

It's good. You'll know the name. It was in Tombstone.

0:16:520:16:55

Oh, yes. Yes. I should've known that.

0:16:550:16:57

Would've scored 6 points.

0:16:570:16:58

-And of course the Mona Lisa...

-The Louvre.

-Stolen from the Louvre.

0:16:580:17:01

That would have scored 69 points.

0:17:010:17:03

So the '90s is the best answer there.

0:17:030:17:04

Well done if you said that.

0:17:040:17:05

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:17:050:17:07

So, at the end of our first round, the pair we have to say goodbye to,

0:17:070:17:10

it's our only returning pair.

0:17:100:17:11

Look at that, Maja and Annette.

0:17:110:17:14

I'm so sorry. Crime And Punishment.

0:17:140:17:16

I'm afraid you had your comeuppance there.

0:17:160:17:17

-I'm sorry.

-We did.

-We did.

-Head-to-head last time.

0:17:170:17:20

-Never mind.

-Let the side down.

0:17:200:17:22

I'm so sorry. It's a shame to have to say goodbye so soon,

0:17:220:17:24

but it's been great having you on both shows.

0:17:240:17:26

-Thank you so much, Maja and Annette.

-Thank you very much.

0:17:260:17:29

APPLAUSE

0:17:290:17:31

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

0:17:310:17:35

And look at that, suddenly we're down to three pairs.

0:17:390:17:41

Ooh, it's getting very intimate here, isn't it?

0:17:410:17:44

At the end of this round, we'll be down to two pairs

0:17:440:17:46

in time for our head-to-head round.

0:17:460:17:47

Well, Ash, very well done to you. Our lowest score in that round.

0:17:470:17:51

But that was an appropriately punishing round,

0:17:510:17:53

that one, wasn't it? Very high scores all around.

0:17:530:17:56

Anyway, well done. We all survived.

0:17:560:17:58

Best of luck to all three pairs for our next round,

0:17:580:18:00

and our category for Round Two today...

0:18:000:18:02

..is Cinema. Cinema. Can you all decide in your pairs

0:18:030:18:06

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

0:18:060:18:08

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

0:18:080:18:11

OK, and the question concerns...

0:18:140:18:17

..Iconic Film Stars.

0:18:190:18:20

Iconic Film Stars. Richard.

0:18:200:18:22

Yeah, Xander's about to show you a board with four iconic film stars

0:18:220:18:25

of a certain generation and you just need to tell us the name of any film

0:18:250:18:29

that any of these have ever been in, please, according to IMDb.

0:18:290:18:32

As always, it's a feature film made for cinema release.

0:18:320:18:34

No short films, documentaries, anything like that.

0:18:340:18:36

So any film any of the following four have been credited in.

0:18:360:18:39

OK, thanks very much indeed. So, as Richard just mentioned,

0:18:390:18:42

we're going to put four names on the board.

0:18:420:18:44

You just have to throw out the name of a film

0:18:440:18:45

that any one of those four has been in.

0:18:450:18:48

OK, so let's reveal those four iconic film stars,

0:18:480:18:51

and we have got...

0:18:510:18:52

Now then, Arry, we come to you first.

0:19:010:19:05

OK. I know Richard doesn't like this, but...

0:19:050:19:08

it's a bit before my time, I would say.

0:19:080:19:10

-Ssh!

-Oh!

0:19:100:19:11

None of it's before your time. All of these are available.

0:19:110:19:14

They're still available. It's your time now, right?

0:19:140:19:16

-OK, yes.

-These films still exist, yeah?

0:19:160:19:18

-Yep.

-So it's not before your time.

0:19:180:19:21

-Of course. Yes.

-LAUGHTER

0:19:210:19:22

OK, that is a verbal warning.

0:19:220:19:24

-That is a verbal warning. That's a yellow.

-Yeah.

0:19:240:19:28

I'll go for...

0:19:280:19:29

It's a bit of a guess. The Best Hotel Marigold, Julie Andrews.

0:19:300:19:34

The Best Hotel Marigold, says Arry.

0:19:340:19:37

The Best Hotel Marigold.

0:19:370:19:38

There's a faint murmuring coming from the crowd.

0:19:380:19:40

I wonder what THAT means.

0:19:400:19:42

Let's see what the column makes of it.

0:19:420:19:44

Bad luck, Arry. An incorrect answer there, scoring you 100 points.

0:19:480:19:52

Yeah, sorry, Arry. I know you had to make the best of a bad deal there.

0:19:520:19:55

I'll give all the answers at the end of the round.

0:19:550:19:57

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:19:570:19:59

Now, Kelly. Kelly, this isn't so bad, is it?

0:19:590:20:02

-It's OK, but...

-It's OK, good.

0:20:020:20:04

-..I might have a couple of obvious answers.

-Yes.

0:20:040:20:07

But I'm going to go with Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast At Tiffany's.

0:20:070:20:10

Breakfast At Tiffany's, says Kelly. Let's see if that's right.

0:20:100:20:12

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Breakfast At Tiffany's.

0:20:120:20:15

It's right.

0:20:180:20:19

Not bad. 49.

0:20:210:20:23

49.

0:20:240:20:25

Well played, Kelly.

0:20:270:20:28

Yeah, she was nominated for an Oscar for playing Holly Golightly in...

0:20:280:20:30

It's the film of the Truman Capote novel

0:20:300:20:32

and he wanted Marilyn Monroe to play Holly Golightly.

0:20:320:20:35

There we are. Thank you very much, Richard.

0:20:350:20:38

Now then, Shani.

0:20:380:20:40

Yes, I think I'll go with Julie Andrews and The Princess Diaries.

0:20:400:20:45

The Princess Diaries, says Shani. Let's see if that's right.

0:20:450:20:48

Let's see how many of our 100 people said The Princess Diaries.

0:20:480:20:51

It's right.

0:20:530:20:54

Look at that, down it goes.

0:20:580:21:00

The Princess Diaries scores you 4.

0:21:000:21:02

Shani, very well done indeed on that far podium.

0:21:020:21:04

That's a very good answer.

0:21:070:21:08

Yeah, plays a queen in that, Julie Andrews.

0:21:080:21:11

One of her later films.

0:21:110:21:12

Thanks very much, Richard. We're halfway through the round,

0:21:120:21:14

so let's take a look at those scores before we head back down.

0:21:140:21:17

4, Shani, very well done indeed.

0:21:170:21:19

Lovely low scoring over there.

0:21:190:21:20

I'd say Shani and Carl are a shoo-in for the head-to-head

0:21:200:21:23

at this point. Then up to 49,

0:21:230:21:25

where we find Kelly and Gareth.

0:21:250:21:27

Then to 100, Arry and Ash.

0:21:270:21:29

So, yes, Ash, let's see what happens in the next pass.

0:21:290:21:32

Whatever happens, we need a low score from you, though,

0:21:320:21:34

so best of luck with that. We'll come back down the line now.

0:21:340:21:37

Will the second players, please, step up to the podium?

0:21:370:21:39

OK, Carl, remember, we're looking for any film

0:21:420:21:44

starring any of these iconic film stars.

0:21:440:21:47

What would you like to go for?

0:21:470:21:49

If you can score 95 or less, you're definitely in the next round.

0:21:490:21:52

Embarrassingly, my answer was going to be The Princess Diaries, but...

0:21:520:21:56

I'm going to go for Singin' In The Rain.

0:21:560:21:58

Singin' In The Rain, says Carl.

0:21:580:22:00

Singin' In The Rain. Here's your red line. Nice and high.

0:22:000:22:02

If you get below that with Singin' In The Rain,

0:22:020:22:04

you're in the head-to-head.

0:22:040:22:06

There you are. Very well done.

0:22:080:22:09

Through you go.

0:22:090:22:10

50.

0:22:120:22:13

54 is your total.

0:22:150:22:17

Yeah, from 1952.

0:22:180:22:19

Nominated for two Oscars.

0:22:190:22:21

-What a wonderful film.

-Fantastic film.

0:22:210:22:23

Now, Gareth, there we are.

0:22:230:22:26

You are on 49. 50 or less gets you through.

0:22:260:22:29

I think, again, it's not a great one for me,

0:22:300:22:32

but I'm going to have to go for a more easy one,

0:22:320:22:35

so I think I'm going to say Julie Andrews and The Sound Of Music.

0:22:350:22:39

The Sound Of Music, says Gareth.

0:22:390:22:41

Here is your red line.

0:22:410:22:42

If you can get below that red line there, with The Sound Of Music,

0:22:420:22:45

you are into the head-to-head for sure.

0:22:450:22:47

It's right. There we are. 77.

0:22:520:22:54

I think you've kept yourself in the game there,

0:22:540:22:57

but you've given Ash a chance.

0:22:570:22:58

126 is your total.

0:22:580:23:00

Yeah, the very opening scene when she's singing the title song,

0:23:000:23:02

they kept having to re-film because she kept getting knocked over

0:23:020:23:05

-by the downdraught of the helicopter that was...

-Oh, really?

-Yeah.

0:23:050:23:08

ALEXANDER LAUGHS

0:23:080:23:09

I'd like to see the outtakes from that.

0:23:090:23:11

Yeah, I'd love to see that.

0:23:110:23:12

Thanks very much, Richard. OK, now, Ash, this is exciting.

0:23:120:23:16

You have to score 25 or less or we say goodbye to you.

0:23:160:23:19

Yeah. Might as well say goodbye now, I think.

0:23:190:23:22

LAUGHTER

0:23:220:23:24

I'll just say... James Bond, From Russia With Love.

0:23:240:23:28

OK, From Russia With Love, says Ash.

0:23:280:23:30

Well, let's find out. You never know.

0:23:300:23:33

There is your red line. From Russia With Love.

0:23:330:23:35

Were any of these stars in From Russia With Love?

0:23:350:23:38

Oh, I'm sorry, Ash.

0:23:410:23:43

I'm afraid you are now our newest members of the 200 club.

0:23:430:23:46

It's a great club to be part of. Some of the benefits...

0:23:460:23:48

-You don't get a trophy, though.

-No, not this time round.

0:23:480:23:50

You get a lovely scarf and a pocket square.

0:23:500:23:53

-OK.

-And it's...

0:23:530:23:54

You know, it's fun. We have outings regularly.

0:23:540:23:57

-And you get a special Ash and Arry discount card as well...

-Yeah.

0:23:570:23:59

-..which is great. Nice to have.

-LAUGHTER

0:23:590:24:02

It scores you 100 points,

0:24:020:24:03

-takes your total up to 200. Sorry, Ash.

-Yeah, unlucky.

0:24:030:24:05

Funnily enough, one of those rounds where you'd have gone through

0:24:050:24:08

if we follow the old rule of, if you don't know anything,

0:24:080:24:10

go for a sequel, cos Princess Diaries 2 would've scored 1 point.

0:24:100:24:14

Would have been a cracker.

0:24:140:24:15

Now, there's some good pointless answers here. Some lovely films.

0:24:150:24:18

Let's take a look at a few of them.

0:24:180:24:19

10. Julie Andrews in that with Dudley Moore.

0:24:210:24:24

Cover Girl, that's Gene Kelly.

0:24:240:24:26

The wonderful How To Steal A Million, it's a great film -

0:24:260:24:29

Audrey Hepburn in that.

0:24:290:24:30

Well worth watching.

0:24:300:24:32

Robin And Marian, that's an older Audrey Hepburn

0:24:320:24:35

with an older Sean Connery playing Robin and Marian.

0:24:350:24:38

Shall We Dance, that's Fred Astaire.

0:24:380:24:40

Lavender Hill Mob - a very, very early appearance of Audrey Hepburn,

0:24:400:24:43

one of her first ever film appearances.

0:24:430:24:45

Just a little walk-on part.

0:24:450:24:47

Very well done if you know it.

0:24:470:24:48

It's one of those little film facts that some people know.

0:24:480:24:51

Viva Knievel!

0:24:510:24:52

Gene Kelly plays Evel Knievel's alcoholic mechanic in that film.

0:24:520:24:56

Xanadu. That's also Gene Kelly.

0:24:560:24:58

And Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly both in the Ziegfield Follies.

0:24:580:25:01

Let's have a look at the top three scorers,

0:25:010:25:03

the ones that most of our 100 people said.

0:25:030:25:05

We've already heard all three of them -

0:25:050:25:06

Breakfast At Tiffany's, Singin' In The Rain and The Sound Of Music.

0:25:060:25:10

There we are. Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:25:100:25:12

So, at the end of our second round, the pair we have to say goodbye to,

0:25:120:25:15

with their high score of 200, I'm afraid it's Ash and Arry.

0:25:150:25:18

It's been great having you here.

0:25:180:25:19

We'll see you again next time and I hope you'll go a little bit further.

0:25:190:25:22

Meantime, thanks very much for playing, Ash and Arry.

0:25:220:25:25

APPLAUSE

0:25:250:25:27

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

0:25:270:25:31

Congratulations, Kelly and Gareth, Shani and Carl,

0:25:350:25:37

you are now one step closer to the final

0:25:370:25:39

and a chance to play for our jackpot,

0:25:390:25:41

which currently stands at £2,000.

0:25:410:25:44

Oh, it's always a relief, isn't it, once you've got to the head-to-head?

0:25:480:25:51

Because you can now confer before you give your answers,

0:25:510:25:54

which is just lovely. The first pair to win two questions

0:25:540:25:56

will be playing for the jackpot.

0:25:560:25:58

-Oh, look, it's a north-south head-to-head.

-Ooh.

0:25:580:26:01

Look at that. Yes, it's Watford versus Barnsley.

0:26:010:26:05

Ooh, I wonder who's going to win.

0:26:050:26:06

We've had great answers from each pair.

0:26:060:26:09

Best of luck to both of you.

0:26:090:26:10

Let's play the head-to-head.

0:26:100:26:12

APPLAUSE

0:26:120:26:14

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

0:26:170:26:22

BBC "Sound Of" Winners.

0:26:220:26:25

BBC "Sound Of" Winners.

0:26:250:26:26

Yeah, simply going to show you pictures now

0:26:260:26:28

of musical acts who have won the BBC "Sound Of" poll.

0:26:280:26:31

But who are they, please?

0:26:310:26:33

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

0:26:330:26:36

We have got...

0:26:360:26:37

There we go. Five winners of the BBC "Sound Of" poll.

0:27:030:27:06

Now then, Kelly and Gareth,

0:27:060:27:08

you have been our low scorers up to this point,

0:27:080:27:10

so you will go first. Feel free to confer.

0:27:100:27:14

THEY WHISPER

0:27:140:27:16

We are going to have a shot at D,

0:27:190:27:23

and we think it's Years & Years.

0:27:230:27:25

Years & Years, say Kelly and Gareth for D.

0:27:250:27:29

OK, now then, Shani and Carl, that board is yours.

0:27:290:27:32

Talk us through it if you can.

0:27:320:27:34

I think A's Sam Smith.

0:27:340:27:36

B, Ellie Goulding.

0:27:360:27:38

C, Mika.

0:27:380:27:39

And E, 50 Cent.

0:27:390:27:41

I think if they're right, they've probably won the point,

0:27:410:27:44

but we'll say C, Mika.

0:27:440:27:46

C, Mika, say Shani and Carl.

0:27:460:27:49

C, Mika. So, we have Years & Years, and we have Mika.

0:27:490:27:51

Kelly and Gareth said Years & Years for D.

0:27:510:27:54

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

0:27:540:27:57

It's right.

0:28:000:28:01

That's a good answer. Years & Years.

0:28:050:28:06

Look at that, ending up at 6. That's a fantastic answer.

0:28:060:28:10

Made good use of your beginner's advantage there, I'd say,

0:28:100:28:13

Kelly and Gareth. Now, Shani and Carl have gone for Mika for C.

0:28:130:28:18

Let's see if that's right,

0:28:180:28:20

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

0:28:200:28:22

Ooh, not bad, not bad at all.

0:28:290:28:30

20.

0:28:300:28:32

But well done, Kelly and Gareth, after one question, you are up 1-0.

0:28:330:28:38

Well played. Now, these BBC "Sound Of" polls,

0:28:380:28:40

it's before these people are famous.

0:28:400:28:41

So they've got a very, very good strike rate.

0:28:410:28:43

It's critics and other people who choose who's going to be famous

0:28:430:28:46

and they get it right pretty much all the time, I have to say.

0:28:460:28:49

Sam Smith would have scored you 37 points.

0:28:490:28:52

He won that poll in 2014.

0:28:520:28:54

Ellie Goulding, who won it in 2010,

0:28:540:28:56

she would have scored you 36 points.

0:28:560:28:59

Mika won it in 2007.

0:28:590:29:01

And Years & Years won it in 2015,

0:29:010:29:03

and have gone on to great things since then.

0:29:030:29:05

And there is 50 Cent,

0:29:050:29:07

and he won it in 2003,

0:29:070:29:09

and would've scored you 15.

0:29:090:29:11

There we are. Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:29:110:29:13

So here comes your second question.

0:29:130:29:15

Shani and Carl, you get to answer it first,

0:29:150:29:17

but you have to win this one to stay in the game, so best of luck.

0:29:170:29:20

Our second question today is all about...

0:29:200:29:23

Varieties Of Apple.

0:29:230:29:24

Varieties Of Apple, Richard.

0:29:240:29:26

We are now going to show you names of five varieties of apple,

0:29:260:29:29

but with alternate letters missing.

0:29:290:29:30

Can you fill in those gaps, please?

0:29:300:29:32

Mmm-mmm! OK, so, let's reveal our apples with bits bitten out,

0:29:320:29:37

and here they are. We have...

0:29:370:29:39

Shani and Carl, it's over to you.

0:29:590:30:02

THEY WHISPER

0:30:020:30:04

Yeah, that's it.

0:30:040:30:06

We'll go for the bottom one, Braeburn.

0:30:060:30:09

-Braeburn...

-Yep.

-..say Shani and Carl.

0:30:090:30:11

Braeburn. Now, Kelly and Gareth.

0:30:110:30:14

Do you want to go through those apples?

0:30:140:30:16

-Not really.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:30:160:30:19

Um...

0:30:190:30:20

I only know the other one.

0:30:200:30:22

They, obviously, I think, have got the better,

0:30:220:30:24

but we're going to have to say Granny Smith.

0:30:240:30:28

OK, so, Braeburn and Granny Smith we have.

0:30:280:30:31

Braeburn, Granny Smith. Shani and Carl said Braeburn.

0:30:310:30:34

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

0:30:340:30:36

Braeburn is right.

0:30:390:30:40

Not bad. 39 for Braeburn.

0:30:440:30:46

Kelly and Gareth have gone for Granny Smith.

0:30:500:30:52

Let's see if that's right as well.

0:30:520:30:54

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

0:30:540:30:57

It's right.

0:31:000:31:01

It's going to be quite close, I think. 52 for Granny Smith.

0:31:020:31:05

Well done, Shani and Carl, that's just what you wanted there.

0:31:060:31:09

You're back in the game. After two questions, it's 1-1.

0:31:090:31:11

Yeah, the Braeburn name comes from New Zealand, an orchard.

0:31:110:31:14

And Granny Smith is from an Australian gardener.

0:31:140:31:16

So both from the other side of the world, those names.

0:31:160:31:18

The top one... Do you know that?

0:31:180:31:20

It's named after a famous house.

0:31:200:31:22

-Blenheim Orange.

-Ah. ALEXANDER CHUCKLES

0:31:220:31:25

That would've scored you 12 points. The next one?

0:31:250:31:27

-Bramley.

-Bramley, yeah.

0:31:270:31:28

Doesn't look like Bramley, funnily enough, does it?

0:31:280:31:30

And it only scored 13 points.

0:31:300:31:31

And this last one is the best answer on the board.

0:31:310:31:33

-Another Australian one.

-Something pink.

-It is.

0:31:330:31:35

-Cripps pink.

-Cripps pink.

-Cripps pink.

0:31:350:31:38

3 points. Well done if you said that.

0:31:380:31:40

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:31:400:31:41

OK. So it all comes down to the third question.

0:31:410:31:43

Whoever wins this one will go through to final

0:31:430:31:45

and play for that jackpot. So best of luck to both pairs.

0:31:450:31:48

Our third question is all about...

0:31:480:31:51

Portugal. Portugal.

0:31:510:31:53

-Richard.

-Yeah, music, apples, Portugal.

0:31:530:31:55

That's how we do it. Five clues now to facts about Portugal.

0:31:550:31:58

Whoever gives us the most obscure answer

0:31:580:32:00

is going through to play for that jackpot. Very best of luck.

0:32:000:32:02

Thanks very much indeed. Let reveal our clues.

0:32:020:32:04

Here they come.

0:32:040:32:06

We have got...

0:32:060:32:07

There we are. I'll read those all again.

0:32:260:32:28

We come to you, Kelly and Gareth, to kick us off here.

0:32:420:32:45

THEY WHISPER

0:32:450:32:47

OK, we're going to go for the Special One, manager of Chelsea,

0:32:520:32:57

and we're going to go Jose Mourinho.

0:32:570:32:59

Jose Mourinho, say Kelly and Gareth.

0:32:590:33:01

Now, Shani and Carl, that board's all yours.

0:33:010:33:04

Do you fancy taking us through it?

0:33:040:33:08

We know... We think the top one's Lisbon.

0:33:080:33:10

-Bottom one, "thank you".

-Yeah.

0:33:100:33:14

I'd guess at, like, a Portuguese pound

0:33:140:33:16

or anything like that for the currency.

0:33:160:33:18

-Shall we go for...?

-Lisbon.

0:33:180:33:20

-We'll go for Lisbon.

-Lisbon.

-OK, capital city, Lisbon.

0:33:200:33:23

So we have Jose Mourinho and we have Lisbon.

0:33:230:33:26

Kelly and Gareth went for Jose Mourinho as the Special One.

0:33:260:33:29

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

0:33:290:33:32

It's right.

0:33:350:33:36

45.

0:33:390:33:40

45.

0:33:430:33:45

Now, it was a toss up, I think, wasn't it,

0:33:450:33:46

between Jose Mourinho and Lisbon,

0:33:460:33:48

which one you thought you should go for?

0:33:480:33:50

Let's find out which one you should have gone for,

0:33:500:33:52

because Shani and Carl have said Lisbon, the capital of Portugal.

0:33:520:33:55

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

0:33:550:33:57

Well, it's right.

0:34:000:34:02

Oh-ho-ho, there's your answer.

0:34:020:34:04

73 for Lisbon, which means...

0:34:040:34:06

very well done, Kelly and Gareth, after three questions,

0:34:060:34:09

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

0:34:090:34:11

Let's fill in those bottom three, shall we?

0:34:110:34:13

Portugal's main unit of currency.

0:34:130:34:14

I like the idea it was the Portuguese pound.

0:34:140:34:16

-LAUGHTER

-That was good.

0:34:160:34:17

It's the escudo.

0:34:170:34:19

Escudo. That would have scored you 28 points.

0:34:190:34:22

The peninsula is the Iberian peninsular.

0:34:220:34:25

-Would've scored 41. And "obrigado"...

-"Thank you".

0:34:260:34:29

..means "thank you", yeah. Actually, men say, "Obrigado" -

0:34:290:34:32

women tend to say "Obrigada."

0:34:320:34:33

Would've scored you 58 either way.

0:34:330:34:36

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:34:360:34:37

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

0:34:370:34:40

I'm afraid, Shani and Carl, it is you.

0:34:400:34:42

But three correct answers in this round.

0:34:420:34:45

I think, had things been the other way around,

0:34:450:34:47

I think you also had Years & Years as well, I think, didn't you?

0:34:470:34:50

-No.

-Oh, you didn't. Oh, well, there we are.

0:34:500:34:53

Well, anyway, listen, we'll see you again next time.

0:34:530:34:55

We look forward to that very much indeed,

0:34:550:34:57

-but, meantime, thanks so much, Shani and Carl.

-Thank you.

0:34:570:34:59

APPLAUSE

0:34:590:35:01

But, for Kelly and Gareth, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:020:35:05

Well, congratulations, Kelly and Gareth,

0:35:080:35:10

you have seen off all the competition

0:35:100:35:12

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy, so very well done.

0:35:120:35:16

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot

0:35:220:35:24

and at the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £2,000.

0:35:240:35:27

There we are.

0:35:270:35:28

So, just one appearance on Pointless.

0:35:310:35:33

Just one appearance. Right through the rounds.

0:35:330:35:36

Right through the head-to-head and, yeah, we never got to talk to you.

0:35:360:35:39

We just talked about your veg, we didn't talk about your fruit.

0:35:390:35:42

-We've got...

-We haven't started fruit, really, have we?

0:35:420:35:44

Fruit's more, we were talking about tomatoes...

0:35:440:35:46

Oh, well, that's good. Nice. Yes. Very good.

0:35:460:35:49

We'll come onto fruits next year.

0:35:490:35:51

-Strawberries, raspberries...

-Well, exactly.

0:35:510:35:53

I'm so sorry, I just got a message from Huw Edwards,

0:35:530:35:55

says he wants to start the news. If we could just...

0:35:550:35:58

Yeah, OK, thanks. Yes.

0:35:580:36:00

Point taken.

0:36:000:36:02

But, yeah, tomatoes, lovely. Always nice.

0:36:020:36:04

Under glass or would you have that under some kind of tunnel?

0:36:040:36:08

Well, they're currently in a tray and then...

0:36:080:36:10

-they'd go out.

-Very nice.

0:36:100:36:12

OK. Well, now, listen.

0:36:120:36:13

Back to Pointless... Peaches under glass as well.

0:36:130:36:16

LAUGHTER A white peach...

0:36:160:36:18

-Mmm! Mmm!

-Ooh, doughnut peach.

-That is...

0:36:180:36:21

Oh, bad news, Sophie Raworth is currently...

0:36:210:36:24

She's smashing the doors to the studio down.

0:36:240:36:26

OK, I'm just going to pop that peach there for later.

0:36:260:36:30

OK, right, now, as always,

0:36:300:36:32

you have to choose the category for this round

0:36:320:36:35

from the board that we put there. There'll be four things up there.

0:36:350:36:38

Probably all four of them will scare you slightly, but you know that

0:36:380:36:41

behind each one, there'll be something, I hope,

0:36:410:36:43

that will make it a bit nicer.

0:36:430:36:44

Let's hope you like the look of one of these, though.

0:36:440:36:47

Today's selection...

0:36:470:36:48

I think we've pretty much decided already on that one,

0:36:560:36:59

because the other...

0:36:590:37:00

It's the jazz albums, yeah. It's the...

0:37:000:37:03

No, I was thinking Nora Ephron.

0:37:030:37:05

No, it's going to be the Champions League football, please.

0:37:050:37:07

OK, the Champions League football, Richard.

0:37:070:37:09

OK, good luck. Big chance of winning the jackpot here.

0:37:090:37:12

This is what we're looking for.

0:37:120:37:13

We're looking for any of the 18 players

0:37:130:37:16

in the Champions League-winning Liverpool squad of 2005.

0:37:160:37:20

Any of the 18 players who were in that final squad

0:37:200:37:23

for the final match.

0:37:230:37:24

We're looking for any of the 18 players

0:37:240:37:26

in Man United's match day squad

0:37:260:37:28

when they won the 2008 Champions League.

0:37:280:37:30

Or we're looking for any of the 18 players in Chelsea's match day squad

0:37:300:37:33

when they won the 2012 Champions League.

0:37:330:37:36

So any of the players in the match day squads

0:37:360:37:38

when those three teams won the Champions League.

0:37:380:37:40

Very best of luck.

0:37:400:37:41

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:37:410:37:43

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

0:37:430:37:46

and all you need is just for one of your answers to be pointless.

0:37:460:37:49

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

-Yes, we are. Yeah.

0:37:490:37:51

OK, let's put your 60 seconds up on the board -

0:37:510:37:53

there they are. Your time starts now.

0:37:530:37:56

Right, Liverpool... I know a couple of ones there.

0:37:560:37:58

-We've got Milan Baros, I was thinking of.

-Yeah?

0:37:580:38:02

-Chelsea, I'm thinking of a guy called Paulo Ferreira.

-Yeah.

0:38:020:38:06

Manchester United... Oh, God, I'm thinking of...

0:38:060:38:10

-Start with the obvious.

-I'm thinking of...

0:38:110:38:13

Oh, what's his name?

0:38:130:38:15

There's a set of twins. One of the twins.

0:38:150:38:18

-Neville?

-No, not Neville.

0:38:180:38:21

OK.

0:38:210:38:22

Just trying to think of the Manchester United one.

0:38:240:38:27

I'm going to say Fabio.

0:38:270:38:29

Fabio? So, we're taking an answer from each question?

0:38:290:38:32

Yeah, an answer from each question.

0:38:320:38:34

I think we've decided.

0:38:340:38:36

OK. You're happy to stop the clock?

0:38:360:38:38

-Yes.

-OK, let's stop that clock and you give me your three answers

0:38:380:38:41

and say which category you're answering for each one.

0:38:410:38:43

Well, we're going to take one from the winning Liverpool squad,

0:38:430:38:47

and then we're going to say Milan Baros.

0:38:470:38:50

Milan Baros.

0:38:500:38:52

-For the Manchester United squad, I'm going to say Fabio.

-Fabio.

0:38:520:38:56

And for the Chelsea squad, I'm going to say Paulo Ferreira.

0:38:560:39:00

Paulo Ferreira. OK, of those three,

0:39:000:39:02

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

0:39:020:39:04

I'd probably go for Paulo Ferreira.

0:39:040:39:06

Paulo Ferreira goes last.

0:39:060:39:07

Which is your least likely to be pointless?

0:39:070:39:09

I think it's Milan Baros.

0:39:090:39:11

Milan Baros we put first.

0:39:110:39:13

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

0:39:130:39:16

and here they are. We have got...

0:39:160:39:19

Three good answers on the board there.

0:39:220:39:25

Let's hope one of those will win that jackpot for you.

0:39:250:39:28

2,000 quid, not a bad prize to be taking home.

0:39:280:39:31

What would you do with that, Kelly?

0:39:310:39:33

Well, we'd like to put it towards a holiday.

0:39:330:39:35

We're actually planning to hopefully visit Machu Picchu this year.

0:39:350:39:39

-Lovely.

-So it would be a start to that fund.

0:39:390:39:42

Very nice indeed. Gareth, anything you want to add to that?

0:39:420:39:45

Yeah, a few seeds and compost for my veg.

0:39:450:39:47

-Very good.

-As you do.

-Very good. As you do.

0:39:470:39:50

OK, now, your first answer was Milan Baros.

0:39:500:39:54

In this case, we were looking for

0:39:540:39:56

the 2005 Liverpool Champions League-winning squad.

0:39:560:39:59

If nobody mentioned Milan Baros,

0:39:590:40:01

you will leave here immediately with £2,000.

0:40:010:40:04

Let's find out how many of our 100 people said Milan Baros.

0:40:040:40:09

It's right. Now, if this goes all the way down to zero, as I say,

0:40:130:40:16

you will leave here with £2,000.

0:40:160:40:18

Milan Baros now taking us through the 20s and the teens,

0:40:180:40:22

into single figures, down it goes, still going down...

0:40:220:40:25

You've done it! Look at that.

0:40:250:40:26

Baros is a pointless answer.

0:40:260:40:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:40:280:40:29

Very well done indeed. Fantastic.

0:40:290:40:32

Brilliant. Well done, you.

0:40:320:40:34

ALEXANDER LAUGHS

0:40:380:40:40

Look at that, straight out of the traps,

0:40:400:40:42

your first answer, Milan Baros, a pointless answer,

0:40:420:40:44

which means you go home with that jackpot of £2,000.

0:40:440:40:47

Very well done indeed. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:40:470:40:50

Superb. Richard.

0:40:530:40:55

Terrific, wasn't it? I told you it was a good question for you.

0:40:550:40:57

Any big football fan is going to get a pointless answer on this round.

0:40:570:41:00

There's lots and lots of big names.

0:41:000:41:02

But Milan Baros is a terrific answer.

0:41:020:41:04

Very well played. Let's go through the answers

0:41:040:41:06

for the different questions. Liverpool first.

0:41:060:41:09

Djimi Traore was a pointless answer.

0:41:110:41:13

Harry Kewell, the Australian.

0:41:130:41:14

Luis Garcia, Steve Finnan.

0:41:140:41:16

Kewell and Finnan both went off injured in that game

0:41:160:41:20

before Liverpool's mighty comeback. Other pointless answers...

0:41:200:41:23

Antonio Nunez, Djibril Cisse,

0:41:230:41:25

Igor Biscan was a pointless answer, Josemi,

0:41:250:41:27

and Scott Carson, also a pointless answer, the goalie then.

0:41:270:41:30

Now, the members of the Manchester United winning squad.

0:41:300:41:33

Our friend, Fabio, did not appear in that squad,

0:41:340:41:37

so it would have been an incorrect answer.

0:41:370:41:39

Anderson, however, would have been a pointless answer.

0:41:390:41:41

Michael Carrick, a pointless answer.

0:41:410:41:43

Owen Hargreaves as well, does a lot of media work now,

0:41:430:41:45

retired with injury. Wes Brown, a pointless answer.

0:41:450:41:47

Three other pointless answers.

0:41:470:41:49

Darren Fletcher, a pointless answer, Mikael Silvestre and Tomas Kuszczak.

0:41:490:41:52

Again, the reserve goalie, was a pointless answer.

0:41:520:41:55

Now, Paulo Ferreira...

0:41:550:41:56

Chelsea, also a pointless answer.

0:41:560:41:58

AUDIENCE MURMURS IN APPROVAL

0:41:580:42:00

-So very well played.

-APPLAUSE

0:42:000:42:01

Jose Mourinho helped get you here,

0:42:060:42:08

and Paulo Ferreira would have won you the money.

0:42:080:42:11

Some other scorers as well, though, for Chelsea.

0:42:110:42:14

Some other no scorers, really. David Luiz was a pointless answer,

0:42:140:42:17

Florent Malouda was a pointless answer.

0:42:170:42:18

Juan Mata, Michael Essien.

0:42:180:42:20

Some big names on these lists.

0:42:200:42:22

Daniel Sturridge, who was an unused substitute in that squad.

0:42:220:42:25

Jose Bosingwa, Romeu, Ferreira, Ross Turnbull, another reserve goalie.

0:42:250:42:29

Ryan Bertrand and Solomon Kalou.

0:42:290:42:31

All of those pointless answers, so lots of pointless answers out there.

0:42:310:42:34

But you picked two of them. Congratulations.

0:42:340:42:37

-Thank you.

-I look forward to hearing much more about this fruit and veg.

0:42:370:42:40

-Oh, I'm so sorry, we're out of time.

-Ahh.

0:42:400:42:42

LAUGHTER

0:42:420:42:44

Thanks very much indeed. Well, thanks again to our winning players,

0:42:440:42:47

Kelly and Gareth, who go away with today's jackpot of £2,000.

0:42:470:42:51

Very well done. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:510:42:54

Join us next time when we'll be putting more obscure knowledge

0:42:550:42:57

to the test on Pointless. Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard...

0:42:570:43:00

-Goodbye.

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

0:43:000:43:03

APPLAUSE

0:43:030:43:06
