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

0:00:210:00:24

and a very warm welcome to Pointless,

0:00:240:00:26

the show where obvious answers mean nothing

0:00:260:00:27

and obscure answers mean everything. Let's meet today's players.

0:00:270:00:32

And couple number one.

0:00:350:00:37

Hi, I'm Mark, and this is Kas, my fiancee,

0:00:370:00:40

and we're both from Ipswich.

0:00:400:00:42

-Couple number two.

-Hi there, I'm Adam, this is my friend Nick.

0:00:420:00:45

I'm from London, and Nick's from Surrey.

0:00:450:00:47

-Couple number three.

-Hi, I'm Hubert and this is my friend Charan.

0:00:470:00:50

I'm from Bedford and she's from Wolverhampton.

0:00:500:00:53

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:530:00:55

Hi, I'm Andy, this is my wife Helen,

0:00:550:00:56

and we're from Stourbridge, West Midlands.

0:00:560:00:58

And these are today's contestants. APPLAUSE

0:00:580:01:01

Thanks very much, all of you.

0:01:020:01:03

We'll find out more about each of you throughout the show

0:01:030:01:05

as it goes along, of course,

0:01:050:01:07

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

0:01:070:01:09

Here to flash you a toothy grin before biting your head off,

0:01:090:01:12

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

0:01:120:01:15

-Hiya. Hey, everybody.

-APPLAUSE

0:01:150:01:17

Good day to you.

0:01:190:01:20

-And to you.

-Now, it's going to be a cracking show, I think.

0:01:200:01:22

We've got some really good questions.

0:01:220:01:24

We've also got two returning pairs who are very strong as well.

0:01:240:01:26

-Yeah.

-We've got, on podium one there, Mark and Kas,

0:01:260:01:28

who got through to the head-to-head last time,

0:01:280:01:30

unlucky to be knocked out. Podium two, Nick and Adam.

0:01:300:01:34

Now, in Round Two, Nick gave us a pointless answer,

0:01:340:01:36

-in European Cities of Culture, which was very impressive.

-Yeah.

0:01:360:01:39

Adam gave us a 100-pointer, but a very unlucky 100-pointer,

0:01:390:01:42

I would say. He said Vienna had been a European City of Culture.

0:01:420:01:45

-Apparently it hasn't.

-No.

-You'd think if anywhere had been,

0:01:450:01:47

it would have been Vienna.

0:01:470:01:49

So they are going to be tough to beat as well, I think.

0:01:490:01:51

Welcome to podiums three and four.

0:01:510:01:52

It's going to be a tough one, but I think it should be a fun one.

0:01:520:01:54

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:01:540:01:56

So, Chrissie and Sue didn't win the jackpot last time,

0:01:560:01:58

so we add another £1,000 to that,

0:01:580:01:59

so today's jackpot starts off at £4,250.

0:01:590:02:04

APPLAUSE There we are.

0:02:040:02:06

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

0:02:070:02:10

APPLAUSE

0:02:100:02:13

All I have to say to you is this -

0:02:150:02:16

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

0:02:160:02:19

will be eliminated. You just have to make sure you are not that pair.

0:02:190:02:22

No conferring, of course, in the first two rounds.

0:02:220:02:24

Our first category today...

0:02:240:02:26

UK Tourism.

0:02:290:02:30

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

0:02:300:02:33

who's going to go second?

0:02:330:02:34

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

0:02:340:02:38

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:410:02:44

Museums in the UK.

0:02:470:02:49

Yes, on each board we're going to name you seven museums from

0:02:490:02:52

somewhere in the UK. You just need to tell us the name of the city,

0:02:520:02:54

town or village you would find that museum, please.

0:02:540:02:57

Seven on each board, 14 in all to have a go at at home.

0:02:570:02:59

-Very best of luck.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:02:590:03:02

So, we are looking for the town,

0:03:020:03:03

village or city in which these museums are located.

0:03:030:03:07

And here is our first board.

0:03:070:03:09

I'll read those all one last time.

0:03:220:03:24

Now then, Kas. Welcome back.

0:03:330:03:36

-Head-to-head!

-Yep.

-Head-to-head last time.

0:03:360:03:38

You were on course. But you didn't win, they didn't win.

0:03:380:03:41

-No.

-So the jackpot is a little bit better.

0:03:410:03:43

I mean, strategically, you kind of did the right thing there!

0:03:430:03:46

Remind us what you do, Kas.

0:03:460:03:47

I work for a well-known supermarket as a non-food stock controller.

0:03:470:03:51

Do the non-food people look across at the food people

0:03:510:03:54

and feel a little bit envious? HE SMACKS HIS LIPS

0:03:540:03:56

-Mmm!

-No, because we're a bit warmer.

0:03:560:03:59

-Oh, that's true, of course!

-Yeah, bit warmer.

0:03:590:04:01

Yeah, if you're in the food aisles, you've got to wrap up, I guess,

0:04:010:04:04

-haven't you?

-Yeah, you're in the chiller, or the freezer.

0:04:040:04:06

-Not good.

-Oh, and backstage as well.

0:04:060:04:08

-Yeah.

-It's always very cold back there.

-Yeah.

0:04:080:04:10

Your bit is sweltering, I should think.

0:04:100:04:12

Yeah, got to take your fleece off, yeah.

0:04:120:04:15

There we are. Now, Kas, what would you like to go for,

0:04:150:04:17

of these many museums? How many of these have you been to?

0:04:170:04:19

I don't think I've been to any, to be honest.

0:04:190:04:23

I'm going to hope the other couples are just as stuck,

0:04:230:04:27

and plump for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

0:04:270:04:32

London, says Kas. London, for the V&A.

0:04:320:04:34

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

0:04:340:04:36

said London.

0:04:360:04:38

It's right.

0:04:390:04:41

-Ouch.

-88. However, you have taken

0:04:410:04:43

the one answer everybody was absolutely sure off the board.

0:04:430:04:46

Yeah, that's what I'm hoping.

0:04:460:04:47

So, I think strategically, again, you might have done something

0:04:470:04:50

very, very sound there. The V&A in London, Richard.

0:04:500:04:52

Yeah, the wonderful V&A, named after Victoria Beckham and Uncle Albert

0:04:520:04:55

-from Only Fools And Horses.

-LAUGHTER

0:04:550:04:59

-Thank you very much indeed. Adam.

-Hi.

-Back again.

0:04:590:05:03

-Yes.

-For another shot at that final, that jackpot.

0:05:030:05:06

Adam, remind us what you do.

0:05:060:05:07

-NICK SNIGGERS

-I work in tourism!

-Oh, no!

0:05:080:05:10

But London-based tourism.

0:05:120:05:14

It was sports! London-based sports-based tourism.

0:05:140:05:16

-Yes.

-You take people round particularly football grounds.

0:05:160:05:19

Yes, bringing people to London, taking them around the stadiums,

0:05:190:05:21

and, yeah, just bringing as many people that we can.

0:05:210:05:24

Are there any stadiums that you think are the real knockout stadiums

0:05:240:05:27

and some that you think are a bit meh?

0:05:270:05:29

There is only one in London that I would consider to be the greatest

0:05:290:05:32

stadium, and as we know, everyone knows, that is Craven Cottage.

0:05:320:05:35

-Correct. Yeah.

-I'm so glad he said that!

0:05:350:05:37

-It's true.

-He doesn't even support Fulham,

0:05:370:05:40

-he just wants to get through to the final. Isn't that appalling?

-Absolutely.

0:05:400:05:43

It is a lovely stadium, actually, if you come from abroad,

0:05:430:05:45

because it's a very old-fashioned...

0:05:450:05:47

-Yeah.

-Yeah, it's a lovely place to visit.

0:05:470:05:49

Unless you're a Fulham fan, in which case, miserable week after week,

0:05:490:05:51

but if you're not...

0:05:510:05:53

-Genuinely, it's an exciting place to visit, cos you always win.

-Yeah.

0:05:530:05:56

-Adam.

-Yes.

-What would you like to go for on this board of museums?

0:05:560:06:00

Well, Victoria and Albert was the one that I would have gone for

0:06:000:06:03

as well, so just looking through the rest of them.

0:06:030:06:06

If I were to go for a mildly educated guess,

0:06:060:06:08

I would go for the bottom one, which is the Colman's Mustard Shop

0:06:080:06:10

and Museum, and say Norwich.

0:06:100:06:13

I like the use of the word "mild" there.

0:06:130:06:15

-"Mildly..."

-Yes.

-There's nothing mild about Colman's Mustard,

0:06:150:06:17

I can tell you that.

0:06:170:06:19

Is it in Norwich? Let's find out.

0:06:190:06:21

How many of our 100 people said it?

0:06:210:06:22

It is in Norwich! It's in Norwich.

0:06:250:06:27

23.

0:06:310:06:33

There we are. APPLAUSE

0:06:330:06:36

23 for Norwich.

0:06:360:06:37

Yep, well done, Adam. The sort of answer, if you're at home,

0:06:370:06:39

you'd be shouting at the telly, but when you're here

0:06:390:06:41

-it's quite scary to hear yourself say the word Norwich.

-There we go.

0:06:410:06:45

Thank you very much indeed. Now, Hubert. Welcome to Pointless.

0:06:450:06:49

Great to have you here. What do you do, Hubert?

0:06:490:06:51

I'm an IT student at college.

0:06:510:06:53

Right you are. And what are your interests?

0:06:530:06:55

Well, it's technology, music and radio,

0:06:550:07:00

those are my two big interests, really.

0:07:000:07:02

Do you make radio or do you listen to radio?

0:07:020:07:04

I make and listen.

0:07:040:07:06

-What kind of music?

-I do all genres, but I prefer electronic dance music, really.

0:07:060:07:11

Very good indeed.

0:07:110:07:12

Now, Hubert. These museums.

0:07:120:07:15

This is quite interesting, because I did do leisure and tourism

0:07:150:07:18

a few years ago. And we studied this particular museum and things to do

0:07:180:07:25

with that relevant individual, so I'm going to go for

0:07:250:07:28

the John Bunyan Museum and say that's in Bedford, I think.

0:07:280:07:31

In Bedford. The John Bunyan Museum in Bedford.

0:07:310:07:33

Let's see if Hubert's right.

0:07:330:07:35

Oh, I hope you're right, Hubert.

0:07:350:07:37

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

0:07:370:07:39

-It's absolutely right!

-Wow.

0:07:420:07:44

88 is our high, you whizz past that.

0:07:440:07:46

23 is our low score,

0:07:460:07:47

you whizz past that.

0:07:470:07:49

It's 5! Very well done indeed, Hubert. Wonderful low score there.

0:07:490:07:53

Bedford, for the John Bunyan Museum.

0:07:530:07:56

That worked out nicely. Remind us where you're from, Hubert?

0:07:570:07:59

-Bedford!

-He's from Bedford.

0:07:590:08:01

Even more so I should have got it right!

0:08:010:08:04

Yes. He was imprisoned at Bedford jail, John Bunyan,

0:08:040:08:07

-so they now have a museum to him.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:08:070:08:11

-Now, Andy.

-Hi.

0:08:110:08:12

Welcome to Pointless.

0:08:120:08:13

-What do you do, Andy?

-I'm at University of Worcester,

0:08:130:08:16

and I'm doing my Masters in psychology, my MSc.

0:08:160:08:19

How long have you been doing that for? What's the...?

0:08:190:08:21

I started in September. I was originally in education

0:08:210:08:24

for 20 years, and I recently left to pursue a career change, really.

0:08:240:08:30

-You just like being in educational institutions, don't you?

-I do!

0:08:300:08:33

-I do, absolutely.

-And when you come out of that,

0:08:330:08:35

you're just going to think, "Oh, I might just go

0:08:350:08:37

-"and do something else..."

-Yeah!

0:08:370:08:38

But what are your hobbies, apart from going to university?

0:08:380:08:41

For my sins, I'm a Wolves supporter,

0:08:410:08:43

but my daughter, Ruby, has recently got into girls' football.

0:08:430:08:47

So I've started to take her on a Saturday now,

0:08:470:08:50

-and she plays for Wordsley Wasps.

-Very good.

0:08:500:08:52

And you've just given them a shout-out on prime-time BBC One,

0:08:520:08:55

-that's fantastic!

-Absolutely.

-Good.

0:08:550:08:56

-Give them a little bit of a push.

-Excellent. Now, Andy,

0:08:560:08:58

which would you like to go for? You can go through the board,

0:08:580:09:01

-if you like.

-Ashmolean, I don't know, to be honest.

0:09:010:09:05

National Media Museum, I'd take a punt at Bristol.

0:09:050:09:07

But my answer, I'd say the National Museum of Scotland,

0:09:070:09:11

-and I'd go for Edinburgh.

-Edinburgh, says Andy,

0:09:110:09:14

for the National Museum of Scotland.

0:09:140:09:15

Let's see if that's right. And if it is,

0:09:150:09:17

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

0:09:170:09:19

It is right.

0:09:200:09:21

46. Not bad.

0:09:240:09:26

Not bad, 46 for Edinburgh.

0:09:290:09:30

Yeah, very good answer. They've got Dolly the sheep,

0:09:300:09:32

is in the National Museum of Edinburgh, stuffed.

0:09:320:09:36

And presumably in the gift shop!

0:09:360:09:38

And if it's not in the gift shop, you would...

0:09:380:09:40

Not the original one, but...

0:09:400:09:41

-No, but they could clone it, couldn't they?

-There you go, yeah.

0:09:410:09:44

Let's go through the rest of these.

0:09:440:09:46

-You'll know where the Ashmolean is.

-It's in Oxford.

-It is in Oxford.

0:09:460:09:49

Another wonderful museum. That would have scored you 32 points.

0:09:490:09:52

Do you know where the National Media Museum is?

0:09:520:09:54

No, I thought Bristol was a really good punt, actually.

0:09:540:09:56

It is a good punt, because you got the first two letters right.

0:09:560:10:00

Which I would have given you!

0:10:000:10:01

-Is it...?

-It's in Bradford.

-It's in "Brimingham"!

0:10:010:10:04

-It's in Bradford.

-Oh, right.

0:10:040:10:06

Bradford is the answer to that. 16 points.

0:10:060:10:09

Do you know the D-Day Museum?

0:10:090:10:10

I would say Portsmouth, probably.

0:10:100:10:13

-You would be right.

-Ah, phew! There we are.

0:10:130:10:15

Well done. 8 points.

0:10:150:10:16

Best answer on the board is the John Bunyan Museum.

0:10:160:10:19

Very well done if you got that,

0:10:190:10:20

especially if you're not from Bedford!

0:10:200:10:23

Thanks very much indeed.

0:10:230:10:24

Let's have a look at those scores, halfway through the round.

0:10:240:10:26

5, well done, Hubert. The best score of that pass.

0:10:260:10:28

Hubert and Charan looking very strong at this stage.

0:10:280:10:30

Then up to 23, where we find Adam and Nick.

0:10:300:10:32

Up to 46, Andy and Helen,

0:10:320:10:34

and then up to 88, where we find Kas and Mark.

0:10:340:10:38

-Now, you were head-to-headers last time, Mark.

-Mm-hm.

0:10:380:10:40

You can't go out first round. We need a really low score here.

0:10:400:10:43

-A kind of John Bunyan Museum answer.

-I'll give it me best shot.

0:10:430:10:45

Best of luck with that. We're going to come back down the line now.

0:10:450:10:48

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:10:480:10:51

OK. We're going to put seven more museums up on the board,

0:10:530:10:55

and here they are.

0:10:550:10:57

I'll read those one last time.

0:11:110:11:13

-What do you do, Helen?

-I'm a social worker, I work in mental health.

0:11:250:11:28

-How long have you done that for?

-Nearly 16 years.

0:11:280:11:31

I work in a community team, helping people to recover from illness and

0:11:310:11:36

just trying to get their lives back on track as best they can, really.

0:11:360:11:39

Very good. Wonderful.

0:11:390:11:41

Helen, what are your interests?

0:11:410:11:42

I like to read.

0:11:420:11:44

I also kind of like to spend time with my family.

0:11:440:11:47

I really do enjoy that.

0:11:470:11:49

And I also like entering various random competitions.

0:11:490:11:52

-Have you ever won?

-Yeah, I've won a few things, actually.

0:11:520:11:55

-What's the most random thing you've won?

-Kind of...

0:11:550:11:58

We've won a few weekends away.

0:11:580:12:00

-That's nice.

-I've won some nice boots as well.

0:12:000:12:02

-There you are, nice boots.

-Mm.

0:12:020:12:04

There we are. Excellent. Now, Helen.

0:12:040:12:06

What would you like to go for on this board?

0:12:060:12:08

I'm just going to play it safe and go for the

0:12:080:12:10

Merseyside Maritime Museum, and go for Liverpool.

0:12:100:12:13

Liverpool. Liverpool, says Helen.

0:12:130:12:16

Let's see if that's right.

0:12:160:12:17

Here is your red line. If you get below that,

0:12:170:12:19

you are through to the next round.

0:12:190:12:20

How many of our 100 people said Liverpool?

0:12:200:12:23

It's right.

0:12:250:12:26

70.

0:12:280:12:30

116 is your total. APPLAUSE

0:12:300:12:32

-Yeah, there's a clue there, isn't there, in the name?

-Yeah.

0:12:340:12:37

Yeah, it's in the Albert Dock in Liverpool.

0:12:370:12:40

Thank you very much indeed, Richard. Charan, welcome to Pointless.

0:12:400:12:43

Great to have you here. Charan, what do you do?

0:12:430:12:46

I study IT as well.

0:12:460:12:47

-Is that where Hubert and you meet, studying IT?

-Yeah.

0:12:470:12:50

How long have you been studying IT together?

0:12:500:12:53

-Two, three years now.

-And whose idea was it to come on Pointless?

0:12:530:12:57

-Me.

-Was Hubert your first choice of team-mate?

0:12:570:13:00

Yeah. I have to say that, he's standing right next to me!

0:13:000:13:03

-LAUGHTER

-I'll pay you later.

0:13:030:13:05

You have to say that because you've got 5 on your scoreboard!

0:13:050:13:08

He's done incredibly well.

0:13:080:13:10

Charan, what would you like to go for?

0:13:100:13:12

-I'll go for the Viking Centre thing.

-Yep.

0:13:120:13:15

Scared to say this.

0:13:150:13:17

Is it York?

0:13:170:13:19

York, for the Jorvik Viking Centre.

0:13:190:13:21

Let's find out if it is York.

0:13:210:13:23

You can't lose, because the highest scorers are over 100 points

0:13:230:13:26

ahead of you, so there's no red line for you for that wonderful reason.

0:13:260:13:29

Let's find out, though, if York is right,

0:13:290:13:31

for the Jorvik Viking Centre.

0:13:310:13:32

It is right.

0:13:350:13:36

45. APPLAUSE

0:13:400:13:42

45, taking your total up to 50.

0:13:420:13:44

Seeing you comfortably through to the next round.

0:13:440:13:47

Well played, Charan, and congratulations,

0:13:470:13:49

giving us an answer somewhere where you don't actually study as well.

0:13:490:13:52

That is quite impressive. Hubert, you could take a lesson there.

0:13:520:13:55

Yeah, it's in the Coppergate area of York.

0:13:550:13:57

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:13:570:13:59

-Now then, Nick, welcome back.

-Hello.

0:13:590:14:01

Remind us what you do, Nick.

0:14:010:14:02

Financial services, financial advice.

0:14:020:14:04

And what do you like getting up to, aside from the finance side?

0:14:040:14:07

I like going to see bands, like seeing comedy.

0:14:070:14:10

Anyone you particularly devoutly follow?

0:14:100:14:13

I go and see Shed Seven every couple of years, myself and Adam.

0:14:130:14:17

They play a Christmas show every couple of years,

0:14:170:14:19

so, pretty much whether I like it or not, I get a ticket bought for me!

0:14:190:14:23

-But they're great, they are great.

-You've learned to love them!

0:14:230:14:26

-I have.

-I love Shed Seven!

-They're a great band.

0:14:260:14:27

They are. They are a great band. Now, Nick, you're on 23.

0:14:270:14:30

-If you can score 92 or less, you're through.

-Yeah...

0:14:300:14:32

One might have thought that was an easy job, but that board is...

0:14:320:14:35

-Tough.

-It requires a bit of specialist knowledge, I think.

0:14:350:14:38

A bit of local knowledge.

0:14:380:14:39

I've got nothing. So I'm going to guess one.

0:14:390:14:42

I'll try Kelvingrove, the top one, and Belfast.

0:14:420:14:47

Kelvingrove, Belfast, says Nick.

0:14:470:14:49

Yeah. I have no idea why I'm even saying it.

0:14:490:14:51

OK, Helen and Andy have a strong interest in the result here.

0:14:510:14:54

There is your red line. If you can get below that red line

0:14:540:14:56

with Belfast, you're through to the next round.

0:14:560:14:59

Let's see if it's right, though.

0:14:590:15:00

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

0:15:000:15:05

No!

0:15:050:15:06

I'm sorry, Nick.

0:15:060:15:07

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

0:15:070:15:10

scores you 100 points, takes your total up to 123.

0:15:100:15:13

Yeah, sorry, Nick, not Belfast.

0:15:130:15:14

Adam feels a little bit happier now because finally you got 100 points

0:15:140:15:17

as well. At least that's something.

0:15:170:15:19

-There you are.

-Equal bragging rights.

0:15:190:15:21

Yeah. Thanks, Richard. Mark.

0:15:210:15:23

-Welcome back.

-All right?

-You are fairly recently engaged?

0:15:230:15:27

-Yeah.

-You and Kas. Have you set the date for your wedding?

0:15:270:15:30

-We're looking at maybe May next year.

-Gives you a bit of time

0:15:300:15:33

to work out where that honeymoon's going to be.

0:15:330:15:36

Are you going to keep that a secret, or are you going to...?

0:15:360:15:38

-We've got a vague idea where we would like to go.

-Yeah.

0:15:380:15:41

-OK.

-Somewhere on the south coast.

0:15:410:15:44

OK. Wonderful places to visit,

0:15:440:15:46

should you be lost for day trips while you're down there, Mark.

0:15:460:15:50

You are on 88.

0:15:500:15:51

This is very exciting, because if you can score 34 or less,

0:15:510:15:54

which should be doable IF you get a good answer there,

0:15:540:15:57

you're into the next round.

0:15:570:15:58

Right. I know one.

0:15:580:16:01

The Museum of Science and Industry,

0:16:010:16:03

because I've been quite a regular at that place,

0:16:030:16:06

and I'll say Manchester.

0:16:060:16:08

Manchester, for the Museum of Science and Industry.

0:16:080:16:10

Here is your red line.

0:16:100:16:11

It's not terrifyingly low, but it's low-ish.

0:16:110:16:15

Let's find out if you're right with Manchester.

0:16:160:16:18

Let's see how many of our 100 people agree with Mark.

0:16:180:16:20

It's right.

0:16:230:16:24

You've done it! Very well done indeed.

0:16:260:16:28

Look at that, down to 18, fantastic. APPLAUSE

0:16:280:16:31

Very well done. 106 is your total.

0:16:310:16:33

Well played, Mark. Absolutely in Manchester.

0:16:360:16:38

-I haven't been, would you recommend it?

-Definitely, yes.

0:16:380:16:41

-Oh, that's nice.

-Excellent, well played.

0:16:410:16:42

Let's fill in this board. Now, Kelvingrove Art Gallery,

0:16:420:16:45

-it's not Belfast.

-Glasgow.

-Glasgow.

0:16:450:16:48

Would have scored 25 points.

0:16:480:16:50

Now, the Museum of Witchcraft is in Boscastle.

0:16:500:16:53

-Oh, in Cornwall.

-In Cornwall, yeah.

0:16:530:16:55

-Yes.

-Would have scored you 8 points.

0:16:550:16:58

-Fitzwilliam...

-Er, Cambridge.

-..is in Cambridge. Would have scored 15.

0:16:580:17:02

And the best answer on the board is St Fagans National History Museum.

0:17:020:17:05

It's an open-air museum, and it's in Cardiff.

0:17:050:17:08

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

0:17:080:17:10

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:17:100:17:11

So, at the end of our first round, the pair we're saying goodbye to,

0:17:110:17:14

with their high score of 123, I'm so sorry, Nick and Adam.

0:17:140:17:16

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

-Yeah. Yeah.

0:17:160:17:18

Anyway, listen, it's been great having you on the show.

0:17:180:17:20

Thank you so much for coming along. Nick and Adam! Great contestants.

0:17:200:17:23

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:17:230:17:26

-Good luck.

-But for the remaining three pairs,

0:17:260:17:28

it's now time for Round Two.

0:17:280:17:30

And so we are down to three pairs.

0:17:350:17:36

Obviously, at the end of this round we will have to say goodbye

0:17:360:17:39

to another pair before our head-to-head round.

0:17:390:17:41

Well, Hubert, very well done.

0:17:410:17:43

Lowest score of the round there, for the John Bunyan Museum.

0:17:430:17:46

Fantastic. Helen, I'm going to say you were lucky there.

0:17:460:17:49

Merseyside helped you out, but, listen, here we all are.

0:17:490:17:52

Very best of luck to all three pairs.

0:17:520:17:54

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:17:540:17:56

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

0:17:590:18:02

and who's going to go second?

0:18:020:18:04

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

0:18:040:18:08

OK, so let's find out what the question is. Here it comes.

0:18:100:18:13

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many

0:18:130:18:18

authors of the 100 Greatest British Novels as they could.

0:18:180:18:22

Authors of the 100 Greatest British Novels.

0:18:220:18:26

-Richard.

-Yes, in 2015, BBC Culture asked critics from outside the UK

0:18:260:18:30

to name their favourite ever British novels, and they compiled

0:18:300:18:33

a list of 100 greatest British novels of all time.

0:18:330:18:36

We're looking for the author of any of those classic British novels,

0:18:360:18:39

please. So any of the authors who are on that list.

0:18:390:18:41

It's all novels, rather than anything else.

0:18:410:18:44

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:18:440:18:45

Now, Kas.

0:18:450:18:47

I might go for...

0:18:470:18:50

..Raymond E Feist.

0:18:510:18:53

Raymond E Feist, says Kas.

0:18:530:18:55

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

0:18:550:18:58

said Raymond E Feist.

0:18:580:19:00

Oh!

0:19:020:19:04

Bad luck. Not on that top-100 list, I'm afraid, Kas,

0:19:040:19:06

which means it's incorrect and it scores you 100 points.

0:19:060:19:10

Yeah, sorry, Kas, he's American, Raymond E Feist,

0:19:100:19:12

and works in the fantasy genre, which would possibly not have

0:19:120:19:16

made it on the list even if he were British, I suspect.

0:19:160:19:20

So, Hubert, we're looking for any author whose novel appears

0:19:200:19:23

on the 100 Greatest British Novels list.

0:19:230:19:26

I love my books. As for whether the authors are British or otherwise,

0:19:270:19:30

I'm not too sure, but...

0:19:300:19:32

This could be a high score, but this is the only one I know

0:19:320:19:35

that's British. Go for JK Rowling.

0:19:350:19:37

JK Rowling, says Hubert.

0:19:370:19:39

JK Rowling. Let's see if that's right.

0:19:390:19:41

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

0:19:410:19:44

No! Bad luck, Hubert. It's going very well, this round, isn't it(?)

0:19:470:19:50

-Isn't it(?)

-Yes, another incorrect answer,

0:19:500:19:52

scores you another 100 points, so 100 points to Hubert and Charan.

0:19:520:19:56

Well, she's British, that's the good news, but, yeah, the world critics

0:19:560:19:59

have not decided that her novels are one of the 100 best British novels

0:19:590:20:03

of all time.

0:20:030:20:05

There we are. Thank you, Richard.

0:20:050:20:07

-Helen.

-This is hard, isn't it? Because I don't know whether

0:20:070:20:09

-to go for...

-It is hard, isn't it?

-..a risky one, and not...

0:20:090:20:12

But don't go for an American fantasy novelist...

0:20:120:20:15

OK, I'll try. I don't know any of those, so that's fairly safe.

0:20:150:20:18

I think I'm going to try and be a little bit clever, maybe.

0:20:190:20:25

I'm going to go for Charlotte Bronte.

0:20:250:20:27

Charlotte Bronte, says Helen.

0:20:270:20:29

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

0:20:290:20:31

said Charlotte Bronte.

0:20:310:20:33

There, it's a correct answer, Helen.

0:20:350:20:38

It's a good answer, too.

0:20:400:20:41

16. Very well done. APPLAUSE

0:20:410:20:44

16 for Charlotte Bronte.

0:20:460:20:47

Good answer. Two novels on that list -

0:20:470:20:49

Villette, and Jane Eyre of course.

0:20:490:20:51

Thanks very much. Well, we're halfway through the round.

0:20:510:20:53

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

0:20:530:20:55

16 puts Helen and Andy right at the top of the table, there.

0:20:550:20:58

Well done. Then Hubert and Charan and Kas and Mark tied on 100, there.

0:20:580:21:02

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

0:21:020:21:04

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:040:21:07

OK, so Andy, remember -

0:21:100:21:11

we're looking for any author whose novel appears on

0:21:110:21:14

the 100 Greatest British Novels list.

0:21:140:21:17

Again, I think I'm going to go fairly safe. JRR Tolkien.

0:21:180:21:24

JRR Tolkien, says Andy. Here is your red line.

0:21:240:21:27

If you score 83 or less, which looks like that,

0:21:270:21:29

you go through to the head-to-head.

0:21:290:21:31

How many of our 100 people said JRR Tolkien?

0:21:310:21:33

Is it right?

0:21:330:21:34

It is right.

0:21:370:21:38

Through you go.

0:21:380:21:39

Another great answer.

0:21:420:21:44

14. Look at that, very well done indeed.

0:21:440:21:46

30 is your total. APPLAUSE

0:21:460:21:48

You are in the head-to-head.

0:21:480:21:50

And that's The Lord Of The Rings,

0:21:500:21:52

is the novel he wrote that makes that list.

0:21:520:21:54

Thank you very much.

0:21:540:21:56

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

0:21:560:21:59

I'll go for CS Lewis.

0:21:590:22:01

CS Lewis, says Charan.

0:22:010:22:03

CS Lewis. No red line for you, as you're joint high-scorers,

0:22:030:22:06

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

0:22:060:22:09

Very good answer, Charan.

0:22:120:22:13

6 for CS Lewis! APPLAUSE

0:22:190:22:21

Very well done. 106 is your total.

0:22:240:22:28

Terrific answer, isn't it?

0:22:280:22:29

Yeah, The Chronicles Of Narnia is on that list.

0:22:290:22:32

Thanks, Richard. And now Mark.

0:22:320:22:35

Well, you have a target here, Mark.

0:22:350:22:37

-Yeah.

-We need five or less from you.

0:22:370:22:40

I don't think I'm going to do it.

0:22:400:22:42

This is... This is a terrible subject.

0:22:440:22:47

I'll go for Terry Pratchett.

0:22:470:22:49

Terry Pratchett, says Mark.

0:22:490:22:51

Here is your red line, Mark, quite low,

0:22:510:22:54

but if you can get below that with Terry Pratchett,

0:22:540:22:56

you are into the head-to-head. Let's see if it's right.

0:22:560:22:58

Let's see how many people said Terry Pratchett.

0:22:580:23:01

Oh, bad luck!

0:23:020:23:03

I'm sorry, Mark.

0:23:040:23:05

I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer,

0:23:050:23:07

scores you another 100 points, takes your total up to 200.

0:23:070:23:10

Yeah, sorry, Mark, not on that list.

0:23:100:23:11

Lots of answers that would have seen you through.

0:23:110:23:13

You'd have got 4 points for Lewis Carroll, for Anthony Trollope,

0:23:130:23:16

Evelyn Waugh.

0:23:160:23:17

You'd have got 3 points for DH Lawrence, for Thackeray.

0:23:170:23:20

Zadie Smith would have scored you 3, Salman Rushdie would have scored 3.

0:23:200:23:23

2 points for Doris Lessing.

0:23:230:23:24

Kingsley Amis, Mary Shelley would have scored 2 points.

0:23:240:23:27

Ian McEwan, Daniel Defoe would have scored 2, Anthony Burgess.

0:23:270:23:31

So lots of good answers out there.

0:23:310:23:32

Let's take a look at the pointless answers.

0:23:320:23:35

Alan Hollinghurst, he was on the list twice, with

0:23:350:23:37

The Swimming Pool Library and The Line Of Beauty. George Gissing,

0:23:370:23:40

who wrote New Grub Street, is a pointless answer.

0:23:400:23:42

Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels, of course.

0:23:420:23:44

Julian Barnes, The Sense Of An Ending.

0:23:440:23:46

Kazuo Ishiguro, who wrote Never Let Me Go and The Remains Of The Day,

0:23:460:23:49

both of those on the list.

0:23:490:23:51

Tristram Shandy by Laurence Sterne is on that list.

0:23:510:23:54

Monica Ali, for Brick Lane.

0:23:540:23:55

Muriel Spark, The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie.

0:23:550:23:57

Sarah Waters, for The Little Stranger.

0:23:570:23:59

Lots of other pointless answers as well.

0:23:590:24:01

You could have had AS Byatt, Kenneth Grahame for The Wind In The Willows.

0:24:010:24:05

PG Wodehouse,

0:24:050:24:06

you could have had Stella Gibbons for Cold Comfort Farm.

0:24:060:24:08

So loads of pointless answers there.

0:24:080:24:10

The top three scorers, let's take a look at them.

0:24:100:24:12

Charlotte Bronte, we already heard, on 16 points.

0:24:140:24:18

Jane Austen has four books on that list, 29 points.

0:24:180:24:20

And Dickens also has four on the list, and would have scored 48.

0:24:220:24:26

Thanks very much, Richard. So, at the end of our second round,

0:24:260:24:28

the pair we've got to say goodbye to, I'm afraid, Mark and Kas.

0:24:280:24:31

Now you hear them all being read out, all those pointless answers,

0:24:310:24:34

you could easily have said one of those.

0:24:340:24:35

Yeah, Kenneth Williams.

0:24:350:24:37

-Kenneth Grahame.

-Grahame, that's the one.

-LAUGHTER

0:24:370:24:40

-Mind...blank, gone.

-No, it happens. It does happen.

0:24:400:24:44

That's the first time

0:24:440:24:45

-someone's joined the 300 Club after they've been knocked out.

-LAUGHTER

0:24:450:24:48

It's been wonderful having you on the show.

0:24:480:24:50

Thanks so much for playing. Mark and Kas, good luck with the wedding.

0:24:500:24:53

-Thanks very much. Mark and Kas.

-Thank you.

0:24:530:24:54

APPLAUSE

0:24:540:24:57

But for Andy and Helen, Hubert and Charan,

0:24:570:24:59

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

0:24:590:25:01

Congratulations, Andy and Helen, Hubert and Charan.

0:25:060:25:08

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

0:25:080:25:11

for our jackpot, which currently stands at £4,250.

0:25:110:25:16

Well, you've made it this far, and your reward for that is that you're

0:25:200:25:23

now allowed to confer before giving your answers,

0:25:230:25:25

which I think takes a lot of pressure off, I'm sure you'll agree.

0:25:250:25:28

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

0:25:280:25:31

I mean, very, very well done.

0:25:310:25:33

We had some high scores in that last round.

0:25:330:25:35

CS Lewis, Charan.

0:25:350:25:36

I have to say, Hubert and Charan, each round,

0:25:360:25:38

you've pulled out the lowest score, so very, very well done for that.

0:25:380:25:41

And yeah, we did well, JRR Tolkien particularly inspired answer there, I thought.

0:25:410:25:45

Anyway, best of luck to both pairs.

0:25:450:25:47

Let's play the head-to-head. APPLAUSE

0:25:470:25:50

Here is your first question.

0:25:550:25:57

And it concerns Donkeys.

0:25:570:25:59

LAUGHTER

0:25:590:26:01

There we are. Donkeys, Richard.

0:26:010:26:02

Donkeys, Richard?

0:26:020:26:04

Five clues...to facts... about donkeys.

0:26:050:26:09

How do you like that?

0:26:100:26:11

-Come on, let's just do it.

-Let's do it, shall we?

0:26:110:26:13

Let's do it. Here are the five clues about donkeys.

0:26:130:26:16

We have got...

0:26:160:26:18

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

0:26:390:26:41

OK, Andy and Helen, you're our low scorers, so you will go first.

0:26:590:27:03

THEY CONFER QUIETLY

0:27:030:27:06

OK, we'll go for the bottom, which is the donkey created by AA Milne,

0:27:110:27:17

and we'll say Eeyore.

0:27:170:27:19

Eeyore, say Andy and Helen. Eeyore.

0:27:190:27:22

Now, Hubert and Charan, which would you like to go for?

0:27:220:27:25

You can go through the board if you like.

0:27:250:27:28

I thought I knew the Shakespeare one but I don't know.

0:27:280:27:30

The only one I know is the Shrek one, but that would be obvious.

0:27:300:27:33

Do you know any other ones? Cos if not, we'll have to go for this one.

0:27:350:27:38

-Eddie Murphy.

-OK, Eddie Murphy.

0:27:380:27:41

Yeah, with the Shrek, we're going to go for the donkey...

0:27:410:27:43

Yeah, the Shrek thing.

0:27:430:27:44

OK, Hubert and Charan saying Eddie Murphy.

0:27:440:27:47

So we have Eeyore and we have Eddie Murphy.

0:27:470:27:50

Andy and Helen said Eeyore.

0:27:500:27:51

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

0:27:510:27:55

Eeyore is right of course.

0:27:570:27:59

Oh, it's a high score. APPLAUSE

0:28:000:28:03

A high score for Eeyore, Andy and Helen, 64.

0:28:030:28:07

Now, Hubert and Charan have gone for Eddie Murphy,

0:28:070:28:10

the voice of Donkey in Shrek.

0:28:100:28:12

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

0:28:120:28:15

It's right.

0:28:170:28:19

Ooh, look at that! 60.

0:28:190:28:21

-Wow!

-Wow!

-APPLAUSE

0:28:210:28:23

Well done, Hubert and Charan, after one question you are up 1-0.

0:28:230:28:28

Yeah, two biggest scorers on the board, there.

0:28:280:28:30

Very, very close. Let's fill in the rest of these.

0:28:300:28:32

All of these would have won the point.

0:28:320:28:34

-The Shakespeare character...

-Bottom.

-..is Bottom.

0:28:340:28:37

Right up the top. That would have scored you 22.

0:28:370:28:40

-Palm Sunday...

-Jerusalem.

0:28:400:28:42

..celebrates Jesus entering Jerusalem, would have scored you 38,

0:28:420:28:46

and this is a pointless answer, if you knew it.

0:28:460:28:48

It is The Golden Ass.

0:28:490:28:52

The Golden Ass. Very well done if you said that at home.

0:28:520:28:55

Thank you very much indeed.

0:28:550:28:56

OK, here comes your second question. Hubert and Charan,

0:28:560:29:00

you get to answer it first, but, Andy and Helen,

0:29:000:29:02

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

0:29:020:29:05

Our second question today is all about...

0:29:050:29:07

Donkeys to Postal Services.

0:29:100:29:12

-This is just...

-I know, it's unbelievable stuff,

0:29:120:29:14

-it's quite high-octane.

-Isn't it?

0:29:140:29:16

I wonder if people at home might need to have a little sit-down.

0:29:160:29:18

-Well, they're probably sitting down anyway.

-Good job.

0:29:180:29:20

If you've been standing up watching, I would sit down if I were you.

0:29:200:29:23

-OK.

-Just because of the head rush.

0:29:230:29:24

We are going to show you five clues now to facts about postal services.

0:29:240:29:27

Whoever gives us the most obscure answer will be winning the point.

0:29:270:29:30

-Good luck.

-There we go.

0:29:300:29:31

OK, so, here are our five clues, and they are...

0:29:310:29:35

I'm going to read those all again.

0:29:570:29:58

OK, Hubert and Charan, you to go first this time.

0:30:130:30:16

OK. I think I know one.

0:30:180:30:21

-OK. Which one?

-The Postman Pat thing.

0:30:210:30:24

Yeah. I don't know any of them, to be quite honest with you,

0:30:240:30:27

apart from the Postman Pat one.

0:30:270:30:28

I think I know two, but I don't want to...

0:30:280:30:30

I don't... No.

0:30:300:30:32

We're going to have to go for Postman Pat's cat.

0:30:320:30:36

It's Jess.

0:30:360:30:38

Jess, say Hubert and Charan.

0:30:380:30:40

Jess is the cat.

0:30:400:30:42

Now, then, Andy and Helen, over to you.

0:30:420:30:45

The monarch who appeared on the Penny Black stamp,

0:30:450:30:48

we'll go for Queen Victoria.

0:30:480:30:49

Queen Victoria, say Andy and Helen.

0:30:490:30:51

Queen Victoria. We have Hubert and Charan's answer of Jess.

0:30:510:30:54

Let's see if that right,

0:30:540:30:55

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

0:30:550:30:58

It's right.

0:30:590:31:00

64 for Jess. APPLAUSE

0:31:020:31:05

Meanwhile, Andy and Helen have gone for Queen Victoria

0:31:070:31:10

on the Penny Black.

0:31:100:31:11

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

0:31:110:31:14

Oh, it is.

0:31:170:31:18

It's right, and 52 is what it scores.

0:31:200:31:23

APPLAUSE

0:31:230:31:24

Well done, Andy and Helen. You're back in the game.

0:31:240:31:26

After two questions, it's 1-1.

0:31:260:31:28

Two biggest answers again so, again,

0:31:280:31:30

all three of these would have won you the points.

0:31:300:31:33

The postbox in Doddington, it's painted to celebrate the win of

0:31:330:31:36

the wonderful Jonnie Peacock.

0:31:360:31:38

Very well done if you said that at home, it's the best answer up there,

0:31:380:31:40

3 points. Terrific stuff.

0:31:400:31:42

The president, I think lots people would have said Lincoln,

0:31:420:31:44

it's not Lincoln. It's George Washington.

0:31:440:31:47

And that would have scored you 11 points.

0:31:470:31:49

And the name given to the collection and study of stamps...

0:31:490:31:51

-Philately.

-Philately will get you nowhere.

0:31:510:31:53

And that would have scored you 38.

0:31:530:31:56

Thank you very much indeed.

0:31:560:31:58

OK, it all comes down to our third question.

0:31:580:31:59

This is the decider. Whoever wins this goes through to the final

0:31:590:32:02

and plays for that jackpot. Very best of luck to both pairs.

0:32:020:32:05

Our third question today is all about...

0:32:050:32:08

Take That Singles in Spanish.

0:32:130:32:15

-Richard?

-Which can only mean one thing,

0:32:150:32:17

we're about to hear Xander's Spanish pronunciation,

0:32:170:32:20

-which is famed across the world.

-It is. Yeah.

0:32:200:32:23

It's expert. We're going to give you now five titles of Take That

0:32:230:32:26

Top 40 singles, but translated into Spanish.

0:32:260:32:29

We need the English names of these songs, please.

0:32:290:32:33

Oh, fantastic.

0:32:330:32:34

-Here we go.

-OK, let's reveal our five Take That songs in Spanish.

0:32:340:32:39

And here they are.

0:32:390:32:41

SOFTLY: Paciencia.

0:32:550:32:57

APPLAUSE

0:33:080:33:12

I don't deserve that at all.

0:33:120:33:13

There are Spanish people now just throwing things at the television.

0:33:130:33:17

I think that's why everyone's applauding.

0:33:170:33:19

-Oh, I see, right.

-They like it when we wind up the Spanish.

0:33:190:33:21

-Oh, yeah.

-Good work, Xander.

0:33:210:33:23

OK, Andy and Helen, what would you like to go for?

0:33:230:33:27

I'm trying to transport myself back to the '90s,

0:33:270:33:29

not that it's helping particularly much right now.

0:33:290:33:33

I'm going to go for Solo Se Tarda Un Minuto, It Only Takes A Minute.

0:33:350:33:40

It Only Takes A Minute, say Andy and Helen.

0:33:400:33:42

It Only Takes A Minute. Now, Hubert and Charan.

0:33:420:33:45

Right. I know, I think, the first...

0:33:450:33:47

Am I allowed to talk you through the board?

0:33:470:33:50

-Please, please do.

-So the first one is Million Love Songs,

0:33:500:33:53

second one is Rule The World,

0:33:530:33:54

then the other one is what Helen and Andy said.

0:33:540:33:58

What's the one below that?

0:33:580:34:00

-Todo Cambia.

-Er, I think that one...

0:34:000:34:03

Could it be...?

0:34:030:34:04

I'm not sure, that might be Said It All, but I'm not sure.

0:34:040:34:07

And the other one was Paciencia.

0:34:070:34:08

And that's Patience. But I'm trying to think which one to go for.

0:34:080:34:13

I'm going to go for the Million Love Songs, which is the thingy...

0:34:140:34:18

-The Amor one.

-Un Millon De Canciones De Amor.

0:34:180:34:22

-Yes, that one.

-OK, there we are. Million Love Songs.

0:34:220:34:24

So we have It Only Takes A Minute, and A Million Love Songs.

0:34:240:34:27

Andy and Helen went for It Only Takes A Minute.

0:34:270:34:29

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

0:34:290:34:32

It's right.

0:34:350:34:36

21. APPLAUSE

0:34:400:34:43

Meanwhile, Hubert and Charan have gone for A Million Love Songs.

0:34:460:34:49

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

0:34:490:34:52

It's right.

0:34:540:34:55

Oh, 40. APPLAUSE

0:34:590:35:02

Which means, very well done, Andy and Helen.

0:35:040:35:06

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

0:35:060:35:09

Yeah, nice round, that. Very well played, both teams.

0:35:090:35:12

If you had said Rule The World for Gobernar El Mundo,

0:35:120:35:16

-you would have been in the final.

-I thought it would have been high!

0:35:160:35:19

I thought the other way round!

0:35:190:35:20

12 points, I'm afraid.

0:35:200:35:23

Paciencia is, obviously, Patience.

0:35:230:35:24

It's the biggest scorer up there, 41 points for that.

0:35:240:35:28

And Todo Cambia, when you said Said It All,

0:35:280:35:30

that sounded so convincing.

0:35:300:35:31

I actually had to look down at my thing, and you'd got it wrong.

0:35:310:35:34

I couldn't believe it. It's Everything Changes.

0:35:340:35:37

-Oh!

-Everything Changes, Todo Cambia.

-Completely different.

0:35:370:35:40

Would have scored you 8 points, that's the best answer on the board.

0:35:400:35:42

-That's fun, that round.

-It's fun.

0:35:420:35:44

-I suspect we'll be doing that again.

-Oh...

0:35:440:35:46

-Yippee(!)

-We'll be doing Beatles songs in Latvian, and...

0:35:460:35:51

Oh, not that again(!)

0:35:510:35:53

Thanks very much. The pair leaving us at the end of the head-to-head

0:35:530:35:55

round, I'm afraid, Hubert and Charan. Ooh, that was close.

0:35:550:35:58

And you had the answer that would have seen you through to the final.

0:35:580:36:00

But never mind, we'll get to see you again next time.

0:36:000:36:03

We look forward to that very much. Hubert and Charan.

0:36:030:36:05

APPLAUSE

0:36:050:36:08

But for Andy and Helen, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:36:080:36:12

Well, congratulations, Andy and Helen.

0:36:160:36:17

You've seen off all the competition and you have won

0:36:170:36:20

our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:36:200:36:21

-Thank you.

-You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot,

0:36:270:36:30

and at the end of today's show the jackpot is standing,

0:36:300:36:32

majestically, at £4,250. APPLAUSE

0:36:320:36:37

Well, what a ride!

0:36:400:36:41

-Absolutely.

-I'm not going to say it's been easy.

0:36:410:36:43

-No.

-We've had some challenging rounds there for you,

0:36:430:36:46

but let's hope there's something that you like,

0:36:460:36:49

a nice category for you on the board.

0:36:490:36:51

As always, you get to choose your category from the four we put up.

0:36:510:36:53

Today's choices are...

0:36:530:36:55

It would have to be 'Women In' Films for me, I think.

0:37:050:37:07

-We go? Give it a random shot?

-Yeah, I think so.

0:37:070:37:10

-We've got the trophy, we're happy.

-OK.

0:37:100:37:12

'Women In' Films. You've got the trophy!

0:37:120:37:14

-We've got the trophy.

-And people will be all right if we just...

0:37:140:37:17

They'll clap us anyway, won't they?

0:37:170:37:19

Good luck with that!

0:37:190:37:21

OK, we're going to give you three different questions now.

0:37:230:37:25

We're looking for the casts, according to IMDb,

0:37:250:37:28

anyone credited in any of these three films, please.

0:37:280:37:30

In the 1984 film The Woman In Red, Gene Wilder's film.

0:37:300:37:34

We won't accept Gene Wilder.

0:37:340:37:35

Anyone from the 2012 film The Woman In Black.

0:37:350:37:38

And you might know where this is going - anybody from the 1997 film

0:37:380:37:41

The Woman In White.

0:37:410:37:42

So any actor credited with appearing in any of those three films,

0:37:420:37:45

according to IMDb. Very, very best of luck.

0:37:450:37:47

OK. Now, as always,

0:37:470:37:48

you've got up to a minute to come up with three answers,

0:37:480:37:51

and to win that jackpot you just need to find one pointless answer

0:37:510:37:54

among those three. Are you ready?

0:37:540:37:56

-Yes.

-OK. Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:37:560:37:58

There they are, your time starts now.

0:37:580:38:00

OK. Cast of The Woman In Red.

0:38:010:38:03

-We've watched The Woman In Black.

-We have seen The Woman In Black.

0:38:030:38:06

-Yes.

-Erm...

-What can you remember about it?

0:38:060:38:09

Not a lot. You've read the book, haven't you?

0:38:090:38:11

Read the book. I remember someone falling in a swamp.

0:38:110:38:14

There was a man in there with glasses.

0:38:140:38:16

Was he the Harry Potter guy, Daniel...? Is he Daniel Radcliffe?

0:38:160:38:19

I think it is Daniel Radcliffe.

0:38:190:38:21

Yeah.

0:38:210:38:23

Ooh. Anyone else in The Woman In Black?

0:38:230:38:25

I'm trying to visualise... It has to be a woman in that...

0:38:250:38:28

-Oh, no, anyone in the cast?

-Yeah, anyone in the cast.

0:38:280:38:31

Scarlett Johansson?

0:38:330:38:35

-No.

-No, British film.

0:38:350:38:37

Would Maggie Smith be in it?

0:38:370:38:38

-Someone like that?

-Let's go for Maggie Smith.

0:38:380:38:41

-I'm really not...

-British actors.

0:38:410:38:43

Daniel Radcliffe, Maggie Smith... Erm...

0:38:430:38:47

-Ten seconds left.

-Yeah.

-Another female?

0:38:490:38:52

Who else would be in it?

0:38:530:38:54

-I don't know.

-I don't know.

-I really don't know.

-No.

0:38:560:39:00

OK, I'm afraid that is your time up.

0:39:010:39:03

I now need your three answers, and if you could say which films you're talking about for each one,

0:39:030:39:07

-that would be great.

-We're going to have to go for the cast of

0:39:070:39:09

-The Woman In Black.

-All three answers from The Woman In Black?

0:39:090:39:12

All three answers. It's the only thing I know about.

0:39:120:39:14

We haven't seen the other two.

0:39:140:39:16

-I think that Daniel Radcliffe is in it.

-Mm-hm.

0:39:160:39:18

-Daniel Radcliffe.

-The other two, I'm just going to go for Maggie Smith,

0:39:180:39:21

just because she's a British actor...

0:39:210:39:24

That's how they cast these things!

0:39:240:39:25

And the third one, I'm going to go for Julie Walters.

0:39:250:39:27

-Julie Walters.

-It's not right, but we just need a third one.

0:39:270:39:30

There you are. Daniel Radcliffe, Julie Walters, Maggie Smith.

0:39:300:39:32

Of those three, which is your most confident answer?

0:39:320:39:34

-None of them!

-Your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:39:340:39:37

We think Daniel Radcliffe would probably be the most...

0:39:370:39:40

You know, I think he was in it,

0:39:410:39:43

but I don't think he'd be particularly obscure.

0:39:430:39:45

-So Daniel Radcliffe.

-We'll put him last, then.

0:39:450:39:48

-And least likely to be pointless?

-Any of those two.

-Anybody.

0:39:480:39:51

-Julie Walters.

-Julie Walters, so Maggie Smith in the middle.

0:39:510:39:53

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

0:39:530:39:56

-Thank you.

-And here they are. We've got...

0:39:560:39:58

OK. Your first answer is Julie Walters.

0:40:020:40:05

In all three cases, we are looking for cast members of

0:40:050:40:08

The Woman In Black. Now, before we just put these to the test,

0:40:080:40:11

what would you do if you won that jackpot?

0:40:110:40:13

You know, a holiday and perhaps a few house improvements, for me.

0:40:130:40:16

Obviously, for Andy it might be something slightly different.

0:40:160:40:18

No, no. Holiday's a big one. A holiday would be lovely.

0:40:180:40:20

Very nice. All right. Well, very best of luck.

0:40:200:40:23

Julie Walters, let's find out.

0:40:230:40:24

Is she a cast member of The Woman In Black and, if she is,

0:40:240:40:28

is she pointless?

0:40:280:40:29

She will win you £4,250 if she is.

0:40:290:40:31

Let's see how many people said Julie Walters.

0:40:310:40:34

Oh, bad luck.

0:40:350:40:37

A good guess, but an incorrect answer, I'm afraid.

0:40:370:40:39

So obviously not a pointless answer. Two more shots at today's jackpot.

0:40:390:40:43

Your next answer was Maggie Smith.

0:40:430:40:44

Again, we were looking for cast members of The Woman In Black.

0:40:440:40:47

Let's find out if she's right, let's find out if she's pointless.

0:40:470:40:50

She will win you £4,250 if nobody said Maggie Smith.

0:40:500:40:54

How many people said it?

0:40:540:40:56

Oh! I'm afraid also an incorrect answer.

0:40:570:41:00

You only have one more chance to win today's jackpot.

0:41:000:41:03

Your third and final answer,

0:41:030:41:04

probably your most confident one on this film,

0:41:040:41:06

-and you have seen the film!

-We've seen the film!

-I know!

0:41:060:41:09

-We have.

-Daniel Radcliffe.

0:41:090:41:11

Let's find out if it's right.

0:41:110:41:13

To win the jackpot, it has to be pointless.

0:41:130:41:15

How many of our 100 people said Daniel Radcliffe?

0:41:150:41:18

For £4,250.

0:41:180:41:19

-Yay, it's right!

-Yay!

0:41:220:41:24

Well, Julie Walters was incorrect, Maggie Smith was incorrect.

0:41:240:41:27

Daniel Radcliffe...

0:41:270:41:28

-51.

-Oh, well.

0:41:280:41:30

-APPLAUSE

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:41:300:41:32

Well, they were tough.

0:41:320:41:35

It was quite a tough category.

0:41:350:41:37

I suspect you'll be kicking yourselves when you see

0:41:370:41:39

-the list of names.

-We will.

-But I'm afraid you just didn't manage

0:41:390:41:42

to find that all-important pointless answer,

0:41:420:41:44

which means you don't win today's jackpot of £4,250.

0:41:440:41:46

-We've got the trophy.

-That will roll over onto the next show and,

0:41:460:41:49

as you say, you have got the trophy.

0:41:490:41:51

And you've done fantastically well throughout the show,

0:41:510:41:53

it's been great having you on. Andy and Helen.

0:41:530:41:55

-It's been brilliant. Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:41:550:41:57

Takes us back to one of the very earliest rules of Pointless,

0:42:000:42:02

which is never go for films in the final round.

0:42:020:42:04

-That's what we always say, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-It's always difficult.

0:42:040:42:07

Let's take you through these. The Woman In Red,

0:42:070:42:09

there's only three members of the cast scored any points at all -

0:42:090:42:12

Kelly Le Brock, Gilda Radnor and Charles Grodin.

0:42:120:42:14

Every other actor in that film was a pointless answer,

0:42:140:42:16

so well done if you said any of those.

0:42:160:42:18

Now, The Woman In Black, which you have seen, and there's

0:42:180:42:20

some well-known names here. Janet McTeer was a pointless answer.

0:42:200:42:23

Jessica Raine, of course, is in Call The Midwife, a wonderful actress.

0:42:230:42:26

Roger Allam, another wonderful actor.

0:42:260:42:29

Tim McMullan. In fact,

0:42:290:42:30

everyone on the film was a pointless answer other than Daniel Radcliffe,

0:42:300:42:33

Ciaran Hinds, Emma Shorey, Misha Handley, Liz White and Shaun Dooley.

0:42:330:42:37

Everyone else was pointless. The Woman In White...

0:42:370:42:40

Everyone on that film pointless apart from Simon Callow,

0:42:440:42:46

Tara Fitzgerald and Andrew Lincoln.

0:42:460:42:49

So, again, very well done if you got a pointless answer at home.

0:42:490:42:51

Tough category. You've been brilliant throughout,

0:42:510:42:53

-it's been an absolute pleasure to meet you.

-It's been wonderful

0:42:530:42:56

having you on the show. Thank you so much for playing.

0:42:560:42:58

Well, Andy and Helen didn't win our jackpot today,

0:42:580:43:00

so it rolls over onto the next show,

0:43:000:43:02

which means we will then be playing for £5,250.

0:43:020:43:05

APPLAUSE

0:43:050:43:08

Join us then to see if someone can win it. Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

0:43:080:43:11

-Goodbye.

-And it's goodbye from me.

0:43:110:43:13

Goodbye.

0:43:130:43:14
