APPLAUSE

0:00:180:00:21

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:210:00:22

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

0:00:220:00:24

the show where the aim of the game is to avoid the obvious answers,

0:00:240:00:27

and find the obscure ones.

0:00:270:00:29

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:290:00:30

APPLAUSE

0:00:300:00:31

And couple number one.

0:00:340:00:36

Hi, I'm Jack, this is my best friend, Meena,

0:00:360:00:38

and we're from Bristol.

0:00:380:00:39

Couple number two.

0:00:390:00:40

Hi, I'm Colette, this is my mum, Corinne,

0:00:400:00:42

-and we're from Lincolnshire.

-Couple number three.

0:00:420:00:45

Hello, I'm Alison, this is my partner, Alan,

0:00:450:00:47

and we're from South Yorkshire.

0:00:470:00:48

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:480:00:50

Hi, I'm Nash, this is James, and we're PhD students in Leicester.

0:00:500:00:53

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:530:00:55

APPLAUSE

0:00:550:00:56

Thanks very much, all of you. A warm welcome to Pointless.

0:00:570:00:59

We'll get to chat to each of you of course throughout the show

0:00:590:01:02

as it goes along.

0:01:020:01:03

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

0:01:030:01:05

Here to clear things up, like a lovable school janitor,

0:01:050:01:08

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

0:01:080:01:10

-LAUGHTER

-Hiya.

0:01:100:01:12

-APPLAUSE

-Hey, everybody.

0:01:120:01:13

Afternoon.

0:01:130:01:15

-Good afternoon to you.

-Good afternoon.

-How are you?

0:01:150:01:17

-I'm very well.

-Now, James and Nash back with us.

0:01:170:01:19

We just heard they're PhD students from Leicester.

0:01:190:01:21

-Yes, yes.

-Two extra bits of information we didn't hear.

0:01:210:01:24

They're PhD students in film,

0:01:240:01:25

and they got knocked out of the last show on a film question.

0:01:250:01:28

-AUDIENCE CHUCKLES AND GROANS

-That's the extra information.

0:01:280:01:30

But knocked out in the head-to-head, so they'll be tough to beat.

0:01:300:01:33

And Alan and Alison, knocked out in round one.

0:01:330:01:35

And I suspect they've got unfinished business with Pointless, as well.

0:01:350:01:38

So, should be a lot of fun, I think.

0:01:380:01:40

Thank you very much. Well, Nigel and Katie didn't win the jackpot

0:01:400:01:42

last time, which means we add another £1,000 to it,

0:01:420:01:44

so today's jackpot starts off...

0:01:440:01:47

at £5,000.

0:01:470:01:48

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE There we are.

0:01:480:01:50

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

0:01:510:01:53

APPLAUSE

0:01:530:01:54

OK, now, remember this.

0:01:590:02:00

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

0:02:000:02:02

will be eliminated, and there is to be no conferring

0:02:020:02:05

until we get to the head-to-head round.

0:02:050:02:07

Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:070:02:08

Our first category today is...

0:02:080:02:11

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

0:02:130:02:16

who's going to go second?

0:02:160:02:17

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

0:02:170:02:20

OK. And our question concerns...

0:02:240:02:26

-National Flags In Black And White, Richard.

-It's really, really good.

0:02:300:02:33

We're going to show you a board now of lots of

0:02:330:02:35

national flags of the world, but in black and white.

0:02:350:02:37

So you just have to notice them by the pattern alone.

0:02:370:02:39

Obviously, the most obscure answer you get, the fewer points you score.

0:02:390:02:42

Thank you very much. OK. So we're going to show you the image.

0:02:420:02:44

16 flags up on that board.

0:02:440:02:46

It will stay up for the whole round.

0:02:460:02:48

Here is the image with the flags on it.

0:02:480:02:51

Wow. There we go.

0:02:530:02:56

It's less scary than it sounds, right?

0:02:560:02:58

Mm. Jack, a warm welcome to Pointless.

0:02:590:03:01

-Good to have you here from Bristol.

-Yeah.

0:03:010:03:02

What do you do, Jack?

0:03:020:03:04

I've just finished my degree and I'm on a gap year at the minute.

0:03:040:03:07

-That's... So taking your gap year after your degree? That's nice.

-Yes.

0:03:070:03:10

So you haven't set yourself any sort of goals for the next year or so?

0:03:100:03:14

Well, I've got a job that starts in August.

0:03:150:03:17

-Ah, right. I see.

-Yeah, so I had like a year off to like...

0:03:170:03:20

-do a bit of travelling.

-I see, and what job are you starting?

0:03:200:03:22

-Marketing.

-So where are you doing that, Jack?

0:03:220:03:25

-London.

-Oh, so moving from Bristol up to London.

0:03:250:03:28

Have you yet worked out where you're going to be living in London?

0:03:280:03:30

-Hopefully with Meena. Hopefully.

-Yeah. Let's hope it goes all well

0:03:300:03:33

today on the show today. LAUGHTER

0:03:330:03:35

Now, Jack, what are you going to go for?

0:03:350:03:38

I think I know a few, but I think they're quite obvious.

0:03:390:03:42

-I'm going to go for India.

-OK. You're going to take India.

0:03:430:03:46

Let's see if India is right.

0:03:460:03:48

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

0:03:480:03:49

It's right.

0:03:520:03:53

26 for India. APPLAUSE

0:03:570:03:59

There we are.

0:04:000:04:01

Yes, absolutely right. Top row there.

0:04:030:04:04

Second from the right.

0:04:040:04:06

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:04:060:04:08

-Now then, Colette.

-Hi.

-Welcome to Pointless.

-Thank you.

0:04:080:04:10

Lovely to have you here. What do you do, Colette?

0:04:100:04:12

I'm an events organiser.

0:04:120:04:13

-Where do you do your organising?

-Well, I actually live in Edinburgh.

0:04:130:04:17

I suppose events happen everywhere, don't they?

0:04:170:04:19

They do, but I work for a charity in Scotland,

0:04:190:04:22

so I'm Scottish-based.

0:04:220:04:23

I see. I see.

0:04:230:04:24

So how many events a year do you have to put on for them?

0:04:240:04:27

Well, we do a big award ceremony every year

0:04:270:04:29

and then lots of different training and networking events.

0:04:290:04:31

Excellent. Hard work, I happen to know.

0:04:310:04:34

-Yes.

-Yeah, very early mornings.

-Yes.

0:04:340:04:37

Early mornings, long hours, hotel rooms.

0:04:370:04:39

There we are. Now, Colette, this issue of the flags.

0:04:390:04:41

Yes.

0:04:410:04:43

I'm going to play pretty safe.

0:04:430:04:45

One that I know is right.

0:04:450:04:47

-I'm going to go Israel.

-Israel, says Colette.

0:04:470:04:50

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

0:04:500:04:53

It's right. Well, 26 is our opening score at this point.

0:04:560:04:59

72 is our new score. APPLAUSE

0:04:590:05:01

72.

0:05:020:05:03

Yeah, fairly hefty score there, for Israel, on the third row there.

0:05:030:05:06

-Third in.

-Thank you very much.

0:05:060:05:07

-Now, Alison. Welcome back to Pointless.

-Hello again.

0:05:070:05:11

We had to say goodbye to you in the first round last time.

0:05:110:05:14

-Sadly. Yes.

-Yes.

0:05:140:05:15

Yes, I'm afraid we did.

0:05:150:05:17

Remind us what you get up to, Alison.

0:05:170:05:19

I'm a semi-retired accountant.

0:05:190:05:21

And you were saying last time that you're trying to play more golf,

0:05:220:05:25

but you seem to be working quite a lot, still.

0:05:250:05:27

Yes. Not enough time to get the handicap down and beat Alan at golf,

0:05:270:05:31

which is my ambition.

0:05:310:05:33

Now there's a lofty ambition.

0:05:330:05:35

I'm guessing Alan is rather good, is he?

0:05:350:05:37

He's better than me. He's better than me, yes.

0:05:370:05:39

Do you travel a lot? Yes, you do, we discovered that last time,

0:05:390:05:42

-as well.

-We do. We travel to Europe which makes last time's round

0:05:420:05:44

particularly embarrassing really. We should have known more.

0:05:440:05:47

Yeah, hope that sets you up quite well for this round.

0:05:470:05:50

What are you going to go for on this board?

0:05:500:05:52

Yeah, not too many European flags perhaps,

0:05:520:05:54

but I'm going to go for South Africa.

0:05:540:05:57

South Africa, says Alison.

0:05:570:05:58

Let's see how many of our 100 people went for South Africa.

0:05:580:06:00

It's right. 72 is our highest score,

0:06:030:06:05

and you pass it.

0:06:050:06:06

26 is our low score.

0:06:060:06:08

You stop at 37. APPLAUSE

0:06:080:06:09

-Not bad.

-It's a solid score.

0:06:110:06:13

There it is on the bottom row, second from the right.

0:06:130:06:15

That's got lots of colours on it.

0:06:150:06:17

They were using them up when they came up with the flag.

0:06:170:06:19

-Yeah.

-Why wouldn't you? If we were coming up with a flag,

0:06:190:06:21

-you'd have as many colours as possible, wouldn't you?

-Yeah.

0:06:210:06:23

What would you have on your flag?

0:06:230:06:25

Erm...

0:06:250:06:27

a big...bear.

0:06:270:06:28

I think in brown or black.

0:06:280:06:30

Maybe a bear with a gold bracelet.

0:06:300:06:32

-Lovely.

-And...

0:06:320:06:34

-a quiff.

-And against maybe a red background?

0:06:340:06:37

-Cerise.

-Cerise would be lovely.

0:06:370:06:39

So black against cerise, bear with a bracelet.

0:06:390:06:42

A bracelet and a quiff.

0:06:420:06:43

I'm just going to draw yours quickly and then I'll...

0:06:430:06:45

OK, that's nice. Lovely.

0:06:450:06:46

I'll do the... LAUGHTER

0:06:460:06:48

OK, thank you very much.

0:06:480:06:49

Nash, welcome back.

0:06:490:06:50

-Hi.

-Great to have you here.

0:06:500:06:51

Now listen, you were the low scorers in the head-to-head last time,

0:06:510:06:54

and you had it whipped away from under your noses.

0:06:540:06:56

But actually, tactically, you did rather a canny thing there

0:06:560:06:59

because the jackpot's just got a little bit bigger there.

0:06:590:07:02

Now, Nash, remind us what you do.

0:07:020:07:04

I'm doing a PhD in film history.

0:07:040:07:06

-In film history.

-Yes.

0:07:060:07:07

But you're sort of studying the marketing of film

0:07:070:07:09

-and the distribution of film.

-Yeah, and also the exhibition of film,

0:07:090:07:12

as well. What it was like to be in the cinema back in the transition

0:07:120:07:15

from silent to sound period.

0:07:150:07:16

Of course, theatres always used to...

0:07:160:07:18

-There was a huge fire risk in theatres...

-Yes.

0:07:180:07:21

-..because of all the naked flames and the...

-Absolutely.

0:07:210:07:24

Was at the same in cinemas?

0:07:240:07:25

Hot, hot projectors and lenses and things?

0:07:250:07:27

Yes, yes, it was. The first-ever sweeping law ever put into place

0:07:270:07:32

for cinemas was to curb down fires, because there was a lot of fires!

0:07:320:07:35

Yeah. Now, Nash, what would you like to go for from our board of flags?

0:07:350:07:39

I've got inklings about a few.

0:07:390:07:41

I think I spy the Spanish flag.

0:07:420:07:44

I'm going to go for Spain.

0:07:450:07:47

Spain, says Nash.

0:07:470:07:48

You're getting a half nod from Alison.

0:07:480:07:50

They travel to EUROPE a lot. LAUGHTER

0:07:500:07:53

I think that could be a good sign.

0:07:530:07:54

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

0:07:540:07:56

It's right.

0:07:590:08:00

Well, 72 still our highest score.

0:08:000:08:02

You pass that.

0:08:020:08:03

Down it goes.

0:08:030:08:04

Look at this, our new low score for Spain.

0:08:040:08:07

APPLAUSE Very well done indeed, Nash.

0:08:070:08:08

"I think I spy the Spanish flag."

0:08:110:08:13

It was like Sir Francis Drake had come back to visit us, wasn't it?

0:08:130:08:16

-I've drawn your flag.

-Yeah.

-I can't...

0:08:170:08:19

-I haven't got cerise, I've only got a black pen.

-That's OK.

-So that's...

0:08:190:08:22

-Oh, it's beautiful.

-It's good, isn't it?

0:08:240:08:25

LAUGHTER

0:08:250:08:27

It's beautiful. That's exactly how I pictured it.

0:08:270:08:29

Would you like a Union Jack in the corner like some countries have?

0:08:290:08:31

-Then people know if it's upside... They'll know it's upside down anyway cos the bear...

-The bear.

0:08:310:08:35

-Otherwise it's going to look like that.

-Yeah.

0:08:350:08:37

I think it's important that we do have the Union Jack in the corner.

0:08:370:08:40

All right, geez. I left a space.

0:08:400:08:42

-I offset the symmetry of it.

-Good job. Good job.

0:08:420:08:45

-For exactly that.

-Thank you very much, Richard.

-Such a pleasure.

0:08:450:08:47

We are halfway through the round,

0:08:470:08:49

so I'm going to tell you where we are on our scores.

0:08:490:08:51

22, the best score of the pass. Well done, Nash.

0:08:510:08:53

Nash and James once again looking like they mean business.

0:08:530:08:55

Then up to 26 where we find Jack and Meena.

0:08:550:08:57

Up to 37, where we find Alison and Alan and then,

0:08:570:09:00

oh, Colette and Corinne. CORINNE CHUCKLES

0:09:000:09:03

The issue of 72.

0:09:030:09:04

We are quite far ahead there.

0:09:040:09:06

So, Corinne,

0:09:060:09:07

you know what we need from you.

0:09:070:09:08

I mean, you know, there will be some low scoring flags there.

0:09:080:09:11

I really hope you know one because it'd be great.

0:09:110:09:13

It'd be just awful to send you away after the first round.

0:09:130:09:15

Coming back down the line, now.

0:09:150:09:16

Second players, please step up to the podium.

0:09:160:09:18

Now then, James, welcome back.

0:09:210:09:24

Remind us what you do.

0:09:240:09:25

I am also a PhD student in film history.

0:09:250:09:28

But focusing very much on Stanley Kubrick.

0:09:280:09:30

Yes, all about the film director Stanley Kubrick.

0:09:300:09:32

Any particular period of Kubrick,

0:09:320:09:34

or do you go right the way from Soup to Nuts?

0:09:340:09:36

-Soup to Nuts, yeah.

-That's it!

0:09:360:09:38

It's looking specifically at his role as producer,

0:09:380:09:41

so just looking throughout his entire career.

0:09:410:09:43

How long have you got to write it?

0:09:430:09:45

-About a year.

-Oh, that's fine. JAMES CHUCKLES

0:09:450:09:47

That's fine. But I mean, you've planned it, though?

0:09:470:09:49

You only haven't written it because you've been doing so much hard work on it, I should think.

0:09:490:09:53

-Exactly.

-That's it, talking to interesting people.

0:09:530:09:55

And going on the occasional game show.

0:09:550:09:56

LAUGHTER Now, you are on 22.

0:09:560:09:58

The highest score is on 72,

0:09:580:10:00

which means 49 or less is your target.

0:10:000:10:02

There's quite a few flags on there.

0:10:040:10:06

I don't know whether to... take a risk.

0:10:060:10:08

I'm going to say...

0:10:110:10:12

And I apologise, Nash, in advance.

0:10:120:10:13

I'm going to say South Korea.

0:10:130:10:15

South Korea, says James.

0:10:150:10:17

Here is your Red Line. Get below that with South Korea,

0:10:170:10:20

round two beckons.

0:10:200:10:21

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

0:10:210:10:24

It's right.

0:10:260:10:27

Very well done, look at that. Down you go.

0:10:300:10:32

Oh, still going.

0:10:320:10:33

20! A new low!

0:10:330:10:34

APPLAUSE

0:10:340:10:35

42 is your total,

0:10:360:10:37

very well done, James and Nash.

0:10:370:10:39

Safely through. Yeah, there it is on the second row.

0:10:390:10:41

They eat seaweed soup for their birthday in South Korea.

0:10:410:10:44

Not everybody, but... it's a tradition.

0:10:440:10:46

-Seaweed soup?

-Yeah.

0:10:460:10:47

-There you are.

-Mm, seaweed soup.

-LAUGHTER

0:10:490:10:50

Thanks very much indeed.

0:10:500:10:52

Alan, welcome back.

0:10:520:10:54

Alan, remind us what you did.

0:10:540:10:55

You had a fascinating job.

0:10:550:10:56

I had a business that manufactured parts for big marine diesel engines.

0:10:560:11:01

So, what was the biggest part you manufactured?

0:11:010:11:04

Some sort of...

0:11:040:11:05

The biggest part for an engine?

0:11:050:11:06

-Yeah.

-Well, we made piston rings.

0:11:060:11:09

-Right.

-Cylinder size were about a meter on the biggest ones.

0:11:090:11:12

So, colossal,

0:11:120:11:14

and these were manufactured in the UK?

0:11:140:11:16

-Manufactured in Chesterfield. Yes.

-Fantastic. That's still going?

0:11:160:11:19

-The factory itself, still going?

-The factory is still thriving, yes.

0:11:190:11:21

Excellent. Fantastic.

0:11:210:11:23

And now you have retired.

0:11:230:11:25

Obviously, we've covered golf.

0:11:250:11:26

And we've touched on the travel, as well.

0:11:260:11:28

What other sorts of things do you like doing?

0:11:280:11:30

Anything outdoors.

0:11:300:11:31

So running, walking, cycling.

0:11:310:11:34

Excellent. Good for you.

0:11:340:11:35

Now, Alan, you're on 37.

0:11:350:11:37

The high score is still Corinne and Colette on 72.

0:11:370:11:40

34 or less is your target.

0:11:400:11:42

I'm going to try for Cyprus.

0:11:430:11:46

Cyprus.

0:11:460:11:47

Cyprus, says Alan.

0:11:470:11:49

Here is your Red Line.

0:11:490:11:50

Get below that, you are through to the next round.

0:11:500:11:52

How many of our 100 people said Cyprus?

0:11:520:11:54

It's right.

0:11:570:11:58

Very well done, Alan. There you go. 25.

0:12:020:12:04

Taking your total up to 62.

0:12:040:12:06

Yeah, there's Cyprus. It's got a map of itself on its flag.

0:12:090:12:12

Oh, I finished your flag.

0:12:130:12:14

Oh, let's have a look.

0:12:140:12:15

So, you've got the Union Jack,

0:12:170:12:18

and Ben Miller has turned up in the corner of it...

0:12:180:12:21

-saying, "Hi, I'm Ben Miller."

-LAUGHTER

0:12:210:12:22

That looks so like Ben!

0:12:220:12:24

-It's good, isn't it?

-It's really good.

0:12:240:12:25

-Yeah, I got him to pose for that while you were talking.

-Ohh.

0:12:250:12:28

-Good work, isn't it?

-Very good.

0:12:280:12:30

-Thank you, Richard.

-Pleasure.

0:12:300:12:31

Now then, Corinne.

0:12:310:12:33

Welcome to Pointless. Lovely to have you here.

0:12:330:12:34

-What do you do, Corinne?

-Well, I don't do anything any more.

0:12:340:12:39

Because what I did do,

0:12:390:12:41

I gave it up so I could do what I do at the weekends.

0:12:410:12:44

-Did you get that?

-Let us unpack that.

0:12:460:12:47

OK. And you gave up with glee?

0:12:470:12:50

-You were happy to walk away?

-Oh, God, yes. I couldn't wait.

0:12:500:12:53

You are now doing nothing,

0:12:530:12:55

because you gave that up in order to do what you...

0:12:550:12:57

Because it takes me till Wednesday to get over the weekend.

0:12:570:13:01

You're a professional clubber? LAUGHTER

0:13:030:13:04

Raver? What is it?

0:13:040:13:06

-Pretty much.

-What do you do at the weekend?

0:13:060:13:08

Well, I'm a original Northern Souler.

0:13:080:13:10

-You ARE a clubber!

-Yeah.

0:13:110:13:13

-Wow.

-So back in the '70s, that was OK, you know,

0:13:130:13:16

it was all night, two nights, all day,

0:13:160:13:19

and then work on Monday morning.

0:13:190:13:22

But now, you know...

0:13:220:13:23

But you're still doing it, that's fantastic.

0:13:230:13:26

Wonderful. Where...

0:13:260:13:28

Is there a particular place you go, or...

0:13:280:13:30

-Just everywhere.

-Everywhere.

0:13:300:13:31

-Everywhere.

-Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle...

0:13:310:13:35

Places you've never heard of.

0:13:370:13:38

Rooms that you never, ever want to go in.

0:13:390:13:41

-LAUGHTER

-That sort of thing.

0:13:410:13:43

I'm trying to read Colette's expression.

0:13:430:13:45

LAUGHTER

0:13:450:13:46

She's got a better social life than me.

0:13:460:13:49

-Fact.

-Now then, Corinne.

0:13:490:13:51

-You're on 72. You're the high scorers at this stage.

-Yes.

0:13:510:13:53

So we need a low score from you.

0:13:530:13:56

What are you going to go for on this board?

0:13:560:13:58

Georgia.

0:13:580:14:00

-Georgia...

-Yes.

-..says Corinne.

0:14:000:14:02

No Red Line for you, as you're the highest scorers.

0:14:020:14:05

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

0:14:050:14:07

It's right.

0:14:090:14:10

That's a good score, down it goes.

0:14:130:14:15

Look at that, seven. APPLAUSE

0:14:150:14:17

The lowest score of the round, Corinne.

0:14:170:14:20

79 is what your total is.

0:14:200:14:22

I wonder if you've done enough.

0:14:220:14:24

That's a great answer, yeah. Very well played.

0:14:240:14:26

That's the one on the third row there, on the left, with the...

0:14:260:14:28

with the five different crosses.

0:14:280:14:30

There we are, thank you, Richard.

0:14:300:14:31

Now, Meena, welcome to Pointless. Great to have you here.

0:14:310:14:34

-What do you do?

-I'm a subeditor on a newspaper.

0:14:340:14:38

On a daily newspaper?

0:14:380:14:39

-Yeah.

-Is it a daily newspaper we know?

0:14:390:14:42

-Yes.

-Which department do you sub-edit?

0:14:420:14:45

-The tablet edition of the paper.

-I see.

0:14:450:14:48

And how many editions a day go up on the tablet edition?

0:14:480:14:50

Well, we build the night before

0:14:500:14:53

so it's ready for people to read the next day,

0:14:530:14:55

and then there's an update, as well.

0:14:550:14:57

-OK, so just one update every 24 hours?

-Yeah.

0:14:570:14:59

What's the time of day, is it sort of lunchtime-ish kind of thing?

0:14:590:15:02

-Yeah.

-Right, OK. That keeps you on your toes, doesn't it?

-Yes!

0:15:020:15:04

Wow-ee! And, if necessary, when stories are breaking,

0:15:040:15:07

-do you then have sort of more instant updates?

-Yes.

0:15:070:15:10

Yeah. It's quite exciting.

0:15:100:15:12

That's the thing I love, actually.

0:15:120:15:13

When something exciting happens, everything's rushing around.

0:15:130:15:16

That's when it gets pretty good.

0:15:160:15:18

Yeah. News coming in on the wire.

0:15:180:15:20

Very exciting indeed.

0:15:200:15:21

Now, 26, talking of exciting, is your score at the moment.

0:15:210:15:24

52 or less is your target.

0:15:240:15:26

Not many flags left on there, I imagine.

0:15:260:15:28

Quite a lot of the middling flags have gone.

0:15:280:15:29

Some very obscure ones and some very well-known ones.

0:15:290:15:32

I am thinking of taking a risk.

0:15:340:15:37

I'm going to go for Sri Lanka.

0:15:370:15:39

Sri Lanka, says Meena.

0:15:390:15:42

Sri Lanka. I can't read Jack's expression.

0:15:420:15:45

He's fairly easy with that at the moment, Meena.

0:15:450:15:49

There is your Red Line.

0:15:490:15:50

If you get below that with Sri Lanka,

0:15:500:15:52

you are through to the next round. How many people said Sri Lanka?

0:15:520:15:55

-Oh, thank God.

-It's right!

0:15:570:15:59

And, guess what? It gets you through.

0:16:000:16:02

Very well done indeed.

0:16:020:16:03

And how! 14. APPLAUSE

0:16:040:16:06

Taking your total up to a lovely round 40.

0:16:060:16:09

Great work, Meena, well played.

0:16:110:16:12

Yeah, the first country ever to elect a female head of state,

0:16:120:16:15

Sri Lanka, in 1960.

0:16:150:16:16

Shall we fill in the rest of this board?

0:16:160:16:18

On the top row, there's two we haven't got.

0:16:180:16:20

Actually, the highest answer on the board, next to Sri Lanka, there,

0:16:200:16:23

-is...

-Oh, Canada.

0:16:230:16:24

-Canada, yes. 91 for that. And top right?

-Switzerland?

0:16:240:16:27

Switzerland, 64.

0:16:270:16:28

Now, best answer on the board.

0:16:290:16:31

Second row, first one, is...

0:16:310:16:32

Cambodia. Would have scored you one point.

0:16:320:16:34

Very well done if you said that.

0:16:340:16:36

And then next to South Korea you've got Bhutan,

0:16:360:16:38

which would have scored you two points.

0:16:380:16:40

United States would have scored you 88.

0:16:400:16:42

The third row, the only one we haven't had is Brazil.

0:16:430:16:45

That would have scored you 48.

0:16:450:16:46

And the lovely triangular flag there, at the bottom left.

0:16:460:16:50

-That is Nepal.

-Nepal, yeah. Eight points for that.

0:16:500:16:53

And the only other one we haven't got, the bottom right,

0:16:530:16:55

-the wonderful country of...

-Lebanon.

0:16:550:16:57

Lebanon, yes. And that would have scored you 17.

0:16:570:16:59

Thank you very much indeed. So, we are at the end of our first round.

0:16:590:17:02

The pair we have to say goodbye to... I can't bear it!

0:17:020:17:04

Corinne and Colette! You only just got here.

0:17:040:17:07

Oh, we were just getting to know you!

0:17:070:17:09

And already we send you away.

0:17:090:17:10

Good news is, we'll see you again next time. Corrine and Colette.

0:17:100:17:12

APPLAUSE

0:17:120:17:13

But for the remaining three pairs,

0:17:160:17:17

it's now time for round two.

0:17:170:17:18

And, now, look, we're down to three pairs.

0:17:240:17:26

At the end of this round, we'll have to say goodbye to another pair.

0:17:260:17:28

But, well done, everyone.

0:17:280:17:30

We made it through the black and white flags round, which is good.

0:17:300:17:32

Meena, of the surviving contestants,

0:17:320:17:35

yours was the best answer.

0:17:350:17:36

So, yeah, hats off to you.

0:17:360:17:38

Best of luck to all three pairs.

0:17:380:17:39

Our category for round two today is:

0:17:390:17:41

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

0:17:440:17:46

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

0:17:460:17:48

please, step up to the podium.

0:17:480:17:50

OK. And the question concerns:

0:17:530:17:55

Richard. On each board, simply six clues to famous people

0:17:580:18:02

known as Jane.

0:18:020:18:03

So, it's going to be 12 in all to have a go at home. Good luck.

0:18:030:18:05

So, who are these famous Janes? Here's our first board.

0:18:050:18:08

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

0:18:330:18:35

Jack?

0:18:560:18:57

Yes.

0:18:570:18:58

So, I feel I know a few, but...

0:18:580:19:00

It's much harder when you're here than when you're at home.

0:19:000:19:03

I do know....

0:19:050:19:07

the third one down, it's just on the tip of my tongue.

0:19:070:19:10

I'm going to have to go for the fourth one down,

0:19:110:19:13

and say Jane Austen.

0:19:130:19:15

Jane Austen, says Jack.

0:19:150:19:16

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

0:19:160:19:18

It's right.

0:19:220:19:23

42. Not bad. APPLAUSE

0:19:260:19:27

All of the novels published during her career were anonymous.

0:19:320:19:34

After she passed away, Persuasion was published under her own name.

0:19:340:19:37

Thank you very much. Now, then...

0:19:370:19:40

Alan.

0:19:400:19:41

Difficult board for me.

0:19:430:19:44

The only one I can bring to mind is the last one...

0:19:450:19:49

which is Jane Torvill.

0:19:490:19:51

Jane Torvill, says Alan.

0:19:510:19:52

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

0:19:520:19:55

77 for Jane Torvill. APPLAUSE

0:20:000:20:02

Big score, there.

0:20:030:20:04

Yeah, she used to be an insurance clerk,

0:20:060:20:07

before she became a national treasure.

0:20:070:20:10

Thank you very much. Now, James, this board is all yours.

0:20:100:20:12

All these Janes are yours, James.

0:20:120:20:14

James's Janes.

0:20:140:20:15

Unfortunately, number two, I delivered a conference paper...

0:20:170:20:20

..and I name checked that person several times,

0:20:210:20:24

but the name now escapes me.

0:20:240:20:26

The two Janes that I did know have gone.

0:20:270:20:28

So, I'll just have to take a risk.

0:20:280:20:30

And that first one, it's a film one again,

0:20:300:20:32

so this is really embarrassing, I'm just going to say...Jane Fonda.

0:20:320:20:36

Jane Fonda, says James.

0:20:360:20:38

Well, it earns a buzz from the audience.

0:20:380:20:41

Let's find out what that means.

0:20:410:20:42

Jane Fonda. Is it right?

0:20:420:20:44

And if it is, how many people said Jane Fonda?

0:20:440:20:45

No. I'm afraid not.

0:20:480:20:50

Jane Fonda, James, scores you 100 points.

0:20:500:20:53

I think that was a disapproving buzz from an entire coach.

0:20:530:20:56

-LAUGHTER

-I think, there...

0:20:560:20:58

Jane Russell was the answer.

0:20:580:20:59

Good answer, though, would have scored you 11 points.

0:20:590:21:01

Now, the primatologist whose name you had referred to

0:21:010:21:04

was Jane Goodall. Would have scored you nine points.

0:21:040:21:06

-Played Sue Sylvester in Glee. Have you remembered yet?

-No.

0:21:060:21:09

Jane Lynch.

0:21:090:21:10

Would have scored seven.

0:21:100:21:12

-And the actress and entrepreneur...

-Jane Asher.

0:21:120:21:14

Jane Asher. And she would have scored 36.

0:21:140:21:16

So, the best answer on the board is Jane Lynch.

0:21:160:21:18

-Well done if you said that.

-Thanks very much.

0:21:180:21:20

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

0:21:200:21:22

Ooh! They're all high ending, I would say, these scores.

0:21:220:21:25

Apart from 42, of course, Jack.

0:21:250:21:27

Jack and Meena looking very strong there.

0:21:270:21:29

At 77, Alan and Alison.

0:21:290:21:31

And 100, James and Nash.

0:21:310:21:33

I mean, Nash, anything could happen on the next board

0:21:330:21:35

but make sure you don't go for a nice, comfortable easy answer.

0:21:350:21:38

It needs to be a low score. We're coming back down the line, now.

0:21:380:21:40

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:400:21:42

OK, let's put six more clues on the board, and here they come.

0:21:450:21:49

We have got...

0:21:490:21:50

I'll read all of those again.

0:22:150:22:17

There we are. Now, remember, we're looking for these famous Janes.

0:22:420:22:44

And, Nash, we need a low scoring one from you.

0:22:440:22:47

I think I've got a couple.

0:22:490:22:51

I'm going to go for the New Zealand director as Jane Campion.

0:22:530:22:57

Jane Campion, says Nash.

0:22:570:22:59

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

0:22:590:23:01

but let's see how far down the column we get with Jane Campion.

0:23:010:23:04

It's right. I think this is going to be a very good score.

0:23:060:23:09

Look at that, Nash. Very well done indeed.

0:23:120:23:14

Four. APPLAUSE

0:23:140:23:16

It's exactly what we needed.

0:23:160:23:18

And you might have kept yourselves in the game there.

0:23:180:23:20

-Very well done.

-Great work, Nash, given yourself a chance there.

0:23:200:23:23

She won an Oscar for her screenplay for The Piano.

0:23:230:23:25

Nominated, as well, as director, but didn't win.

0:23:250:23:27

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:23:270:23:29

Alison. Alison, you're on 77.

0:23:290:23:31

The high scorers, at the moment, 104, Nash and James.

0:23:310:23:35

So, 26 or less.

0:23:350:23:37

I think I'm going to go for the fifth one.

0:23:380:23:40

The third wife of Henry VIII,

0:23:400:23:42

and say Jane Seymour.

0:23:420:23:44

Jane Seymour, says Alison.

0:23:440:23:45

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

0:23:450:23:47

There is your red line.

0:23:470:23:49

It's right.

0:23:520:23:54

APPLAUSE 50 for that.

0:23:560:23:58

127 is your total.

0:23:590:24:01

Nash and James, welcome back into the game.

0:24:010:24:04

Very nicely done.

0:24:040:24:05

Yeah, the first of his wives not to undergo a coronation.

0:24:050:24:08

Jane Seymour. I imagine, by that time, he thought, what's the point?

0:24:080:24:11

-He's going to run out of crowns.

-Yeah, exactly.

0:24:110:24:14

Thanks very much. Now then, Meena,

0:24:140:24:18

you are on 42.

0:24:180:24:19

If you can score 84 or less, you are through to the next round.

0:24:190:24:23

I have no idea about any of the ones that are left, unfortunately,

0:24:230:24:27

so I'm going to have to guess.

0:24:270:24:29

And I'm going to say Jane Fonda for the first one.

0:24:290:24:32

For Barbarella? Jane Fonda, says Meena.

0:24:320:24:35

Complete guess.

0:24:350:24:37

There is your red line.

0:24:370:24:38

If you get below it, you are through to the next round.

0:24:380:24:41

How many of our 100 people said Jane Fonda?

0:24:410:24:43

It is Jane Fonda.

0:24:460:24:47

And through you go to the head-to-head.

0:24:470:24:49

Very well done indeed. APPLAUSE

0:24:490:24:51

Scores you 72, which is good enough,

0:24:510:24:53

taking your total up to 114.

0:24:530:24:55

Yeah. Very well played, Meena,

0:24:550:24:57

that was nicely done, wasn't it?

0:24:570:24:58

Goodness me. The best actress Oscar winner

0:24:580:25:01

and married to Reagan was Jane Wyman.

0:25:010:25:03

Audience, the blonde bombshell?

0:25:030:25:05

Jayne Mansfield.

0:25:050:25:06

Jayne Mansfield. Absolutely.

0:25:060:25:07

That would have scored 24.

0:25:070:25:08

-And played Bubble in Absolutely Fabulous?

-Jane Horrocks.

0:25:080:25:10

Jane Horrocks. And she would have scored you 48.

0:25:100:25:12

So, Jane Campion, Nash, best answer on the board.

0:25:120:25:15

There we are. Thanks very much, Richard.

0:25:150:25:17

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

0:25:170:25:19

I'm afraid, Alison and Alan, for the second time.

0:25:190:25:22

Been wonderful having you on.

0:25:220:25:23

I'm sorry we haven't got you further than this.

0:25:230:25:25

But very well played. Great to have you here.

0:25:250:25:27

Thank you so much. Alison and Alan.

0:25:270:25:29

APPLAUSE

0:25:290:25:30

But for James and Nash, Jack and Meena,

0:25:330:25:35

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

0:25:350:25:37

APPLAUSE

0:25:370:25:38

Congratulations, James and Nash, Jack and Meena.

0:25:420:25:44

You are now one step closer to the final

0:25:440:25:46

and the chance to play for our jackpot,

0:25:460:25:48

which currently stands at £5,000.

0:25:480:25:51

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:25:510:25:53

So, here we are. We've reached the head-to-head

0:25:540:25:56

which means you can now confer before giving your answers.

0:25:560:25:58

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

0:25:580:26:01

Jack and Meena. First appearance on the show,

0:26:010:26:03

straight through to the head-to-head. Very, very well done.

0:26:030:26:06

James and Nash, your second appearance on the show.

0:26:060:26:09

Second appearance in the head-to-head round

0:26:090:26:11

and as our low scoring pair.

0:26:110:26:13

Yeah, you gave us a bit of a run-around there.

0:26:130:26:15

Nash, you did very, very well to dig James out

0:26:150:26:17

after his incorrect answer in that last round.

0:26:170:26:19

But, here you are, back as our golden couple.

0:26:190:26:23

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

0:26:230:26:25

APPLAUSE

0:26:250:26:27

Here is your first question. And it concerns:

0:26:310:26:35

-Richard.

-Going to show you now the names of five works of art

0:26:370:26:40

and the initials of the gallery you will find them in.

0:26:400:26:42

Can you tell us what those galleries are, please?

0:26:420:26:45

Thank you very much indeed.

0:26:450:26:46

OK. Let's reveal our five works of art and here they come.

0:26:460:26:49

We have got...

0:26:490:26:50

I'll read those all again.

0:27:090:27:11

James and Nash will go first.

0:27:240:27:26

WHISPERING

0:27:260:27:27

Um, I think...

0:27:310:27:34

Ooh, this is a tricky one. I think we're going to try the first one.

0:27:340:27:37

The National Gallery.

0:27:370:27:38

The National Gallery, say James and Nash. The National Gallery.

0:27:380:27:41

Jack and Meena, talk us through the rest of the board, if you can.

0:27:410:27:44

We know that the third one down is The Louvre.

0:27:440:27:46

We think the fourth one down is a museum in Amsterdam.

0:27:460:27:50

But I don't know how to pronounce it correctly.

0:27:500:27:52

THEY LAUGH

0:27:520:27:54

It's, like R I J K S museum.

0:27:540:27:57

Cos I feel like The Louvre is going to be higher

0:27:570:27:59

than The National Gallery.

0:27:590:28:00

We'll go for Rijksmuseum.

0:28:000:28:02

-The Rijksmuseum.

-Yes, yes.

-OK.

0:28:020:28:04

So, we have The National Gallery and we have the Rijksmuseum.

0:28:040:28:08

James and Nash have gone for The National Gallery.

0:28:080:28:11

Let's see if that's right for The Hay Wain.

0:28:110:28:13

Let's see how many people said it.

0:28:130:28:14

It's right.

0:28:180:28:19

APPLAUSE

0:28:230:28:24

31.

0:28:270:28:28

Jack and Meena have gone for the Rijksmuseum.

0:28:280:28:31

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

0:28:310:28:33

Is it right?

0:28:330:28:34

It is absolutely right.

0:28:370:28:39

THEY CHUCKLE

0:28:390:28:40

-Go lower! Go lower! Go! Go!

-Amazing.

0:28:400:28:41

And there you are, wins you the point.

0:28:410:28:43

Very well done, indeed.

0:28:430:28:44

Down it goes to six, the Rijksmuseum.

0:28:440:28:46

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:28:460:28:47

And it means after one question Jack and Meena are up 1-0.

0:28:490:28:51

And you spelt it beautifully.

0:28:510:28:53

Absolutely perfect, yeah, very well done.

0:28:530:28:54

It's pronounced "Raiks" museum, but the spelling was exemplary.

0:28:540:28:57

And it's a right answer, as well.

0:28:570:29:00

Now, the birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli,

0:29:000:29:02

-is in...

-The Uffizi.

0:29:020:29:03

the Uffizi. Yep.

0:29:030:29:04

That would have scored you 12.

0:29:040:29:06

You were right to avoid the Louvre.

0:29:060:29:08

Would have scored 61.

0:29:080:29:10

And the best answer up there...

0:29:100:29:12

Guernica, one of the most famous paintings of the 20th century

0:29:120:29:15

is in the Reina Sofia in Madrid.

0:29:150:29:17

And if you knew that, you've just got a pointless answer.

0:29:170:29:19

-Very well done.

-Thank you very much, indeed, Richard.

0:29:190:29:21

So, here comes your second question.

0:29:210:29:23

James and Nash, I'm getting deja vu here.

0:29:230:29:25

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

0:29:250:29:27

So, best of luck,

0:29:270:29:28

because Jack and Meena will get to answer it first.

0:29:280:29:30

Our second question is all about...

0:29:300:29:33

Fictional soldiers, Richard.

0:29:350:29:37

Yeah, even worse news, gents, this is a film question.

0:29:370:29:39

LAUGHTER

0:29:390:29:40

We're going to show you five pictures now of fictional soldiers

0:29:400:29:42

in films. We need you to tell us the name of the film, please.

0:29:420:29:45

OK. Let's reveal our five fictional soldiers and here they come.

0:29:450:29:47

We have got...

0:29:490:29:50

There we are.

0:30:130:30:14

Five fictional soldiers.

0:30:140:30:16

You just need to tell us which films they are from.

0:30:160:30:18

Jack and Meena will go first.

0:30:180:30:20

WHISPERING

0:30:210:30:22

OK.

0:30:260:30:27

We are, kind of, taking a guess.

0:30:270:30:30

-THEY CHUCKLE

-As usual.

0:30:320:30:34

And we're going to say The Hurt Locker, for C.

0:30:340:30:38

C, The Hurt Locker.

0:30:380:30:39

C, The Hurt Locker. Now, James and Nash, that board is all yours.

0:30:390:30:44

If you want to talk us through it and supply names.

0:30:440:30:47

Well, I think we know four of them.

0:30:480:30:50

I famously know D because I once projected it upside down

0:30:500:30:53

-during a lecture.

-LAUGHTER

0:30:530:30:55

-And they couldn't tell.

-And they couldn't tell.

0:30:550:30:57

That was Apocalypse Now.

0:30:570:30:59

I think C is Jarhead.

0:30:590:31:01

C is Jarhead.

0:31:010:31:03

A is The Hurt Locker.

0:31:030:31:05

And B's Saving Private Ryan.

0:31:050:31:06

Can't remember the name of E...

0:31:060:31:08

even though I've seen it.

0:31:080:31:10

But shall we go... Which one shall we go for?

0:31:110:31:13

Let's go Apocalypse Now.

0:31:130:31:15

Might as well. Apocalypse Now.

0:31:150:31:16

OK, you're going to say D, Apocalypse Now.

0:31:160:31:18

So, we have The Hurt Locker for C,

0:31:180:31:23

from Jack and Meena.

0:31:230:31:24

Let's see if that's right,

0:31:240:31:25

let's see how many of our 100 people said The Hurt Locker for C.

0:31:250:31:28

No. Not right.

0:31:300:31:31

Which means, James and Nash,

0:31:310:31:32

you merely have to be correct with this and you are back in the game,

0:31:320:31:35

and you have gone for Apocalypse Now, for D.

0:31:350:31:38

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

0:31:380:31:41

Well done. Back in.

0:31:440:31:45

20. APPLAUSE

0:31:500:31:52

20 for Apocalypse now.

0:31:530:31:55

And that means, after two questions, it's 1-1.

0:31:550:31:58

That landed very nicely. He looks so young there, Martin Sheen,

0:31:580:32:00

-doesn't he?

-Yeah.

-Isn't that amazing?

0:32:000:32:02

Took us through the board beautifully there.

0:32:020:32:04

A is The Hurt Locker.

0:32:040:32:06

That would have scored you eight points.

0:32:060:32:07

It's the best answer up there, actually.

0:32:070:32:09

Saving Private Ryan's 52 points.

0:32:110:32:13

Jarhead. Quite right. That's 16 points.

0:32:160:32:18

-And the last one?

-Private Benjamin.

0:32:190:32:21

Private Benjamin, that would have scored 51.

0:32:210:32:24

Thank you very much indeed.

0:32:240:32:25

OK, here comes the third question. This is the decider.

0:32:250:32:28

James and Nash, this is where you went out last time.

0:32:280:32:31

Is that going to happen again, I wonder? Let's see.

0:32:320:32:34

Best of luck to both pairs.

0:32:340:32:36

Our third question is all about...

0:32:360:32:38

LAUGHTER

0:32:390:32:41

-Richard?

-I like that it gets a laugh at least.

0:32:420:32:45

Yeah. Were going to show you five clues now about the wonderful city

0:32:450:32:48

of Norwich. Whichever team gives us the most obscure answer

0:32:480:32:51

is going through to play for that £5,000 jackpot.

0:32:510:32:54

Let's reveal our five clues. Here they come. We've got...

0:32:540:32:56

I'll read them again.

0:33:160:33:17

James and Nash will go first.

0:33:350:33:36

I think we're going to take a bit of a risk.

0:33:380:33:40

We know a few but we think they might be high-scoring.

0:33:400:33:42

So, I'm going to go for the bottom one and Nash is going to hate me

0:33:440:33:46

if this is wrong.

0:33:460:33:48

Sir John Houblon?

0:33:480:33:50

H O U B L O N.

0:33:500:33:53

Sir John Houblon, says James.

0:33:530:33:57

OK. Sir John Houblon, for the Quaker philanthropist.

0:33:570:34:00

Now then, Jack and Meena.

0:34:000:34:02

It's over to you.

0:34:020:34:03

Talk us through that board, if you can.

0:34:030:34:06

We know the DJ, which is Alan Partridge.

0:34:060:34:08

And we think the cookery writer might be Delia Smith.

0:34:100:34:12

But shall we go for that?

0:34:120:34:14

Yeah...

0:34:140:34:15

We're going to go for Delia Smith, the cookery writer.

0:34:150:34:17

Delia Smith, say Jack and Meena.

0:34:170:34:20

So, Sir John Houblon is James and Nash's answer

0:34:200:34:23

for the Quaker philanthropist. Let's see if that's right.

0:34:230:34:26

Sir John Houblon.

0:34:260:34:27

How many people said it, if it's right?

0:34:270:34:29

No!

0:34:330:34:34

Oh, I'm sorry.

0:34:340:34:36

Pointless loves it when people do that cos quite often they're right.

0:34:360:34:39

-I think I know the right answer now.

-Oh, I'm sorry!

0:34:390:34:42

Anyway, Jack and Meena, you merely have to be right with Delia Smith,

0:34:420:34:44

which is also a bit of a punt for the cookery writer.

0:34:440:34:47

Let's see if it's right.

0:34:470:34:48

If it is, you go through to the final.

0:34:480:34:50

I'm afraid...

0:34:540:34:55

-Ooh!

-..for James and Nash's sake...

0:34:560:34:58

..that is a correct answer.

0:34:590:35:01

It means very well done, Jack and Meena.

0:35:010:35:03

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

0:35:030:35:06

Yeah. Sir John Houblon,

0:35:060:35:08

he was the first governor of the Bank of England.

0:35:080:35:10

-Who would you have gone for now?

-Elizabeth Fry.

0:35:100:35:12

It was Elizabeth Fry.

0:35:120:35:13

Yeah, it was Elizabeth Fry,

0:35:130:35:15

and she would have seen you through to the final, as well.

0:35:150:35:17

-Just eight points.

-GENERAL GROANING

0:35:170:35:19

That is unlucky.

0:35:190:35:20

-Author of His Dark Materials?

-Philip Pullman.

0:35:200:35:22

Philip Pullman. 28 Points.

0:35:220:35:23

It lies on the river...

0:35:230:35:25

Wensum.

0:35:250:35:26

Wensum, and that would have scored you five.

0:35:260:35:28

And you're quite right about Steve Coogan.

0:35:280:35:30

Played Alan Partridge.

0:35:300:35:31

And would have scored 40 points.

0:35:310:35:33

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:35:330:35:34

So the pair leaving as at the end of the head-to-head round

0:35:340:35:37

for the second time, I'm afraid, it's James and Nash.

0:35:370:35:41

Oh...

0:35:410:35:42

I'm sorry. Pointless bridesmaids,

0:35:420:35:43

never Pointless brides. LAUGHTER

0:35:430:35:45

I'm so sorry. It's been wonderful having you on both shows.

0:35:450:35:47

Really strong performance.

0:35:470:35:49

Very exciting performance across this show.

0:35:490:35:51

You kept us on tenterhooks, there.

0:35:510:35:52

I'm afraid this is where we say goodbye.

0:35:520:35:54

Thank you so much for playing. James and Nash, very well done.

0:35:540:35:56

APPLAUSE

0:35:560:35:57

But for Jack and Meena, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:590:36:01

APPLAUSE

0:36:010:36:03

Well, congratulations,

0:36:050:36:06

Jack and Meena, you've seen off all the competition.

0:36:060:36:09

And you've won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:36:090:36:11

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:36:170:36:20

At the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £5,000.

0:36:200:36:23

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:36:230:36:25

Well, what about that?

0:36:270:36:28

One show, you just come straight in,

0:36:280:36:30

straight through to the final,

0:36:300:36:32

and now playing for a massive jackpot.

0:36:320:36:34

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

0:36:340:36:37

Well, literature, so that Meena can answer all of the questions.

0:36:380:36:41

-HE GIGGLES

-Music would be quite good.

-Yeah.

0:36:410:36:43

-Music would be good. Like, Pop music.

-Yeah.

0:36:430:36:46

-What else? A bit more geography?

-Some geography. That'd be good.

0:36:460:36:49

OK. Well, you know what it's like in this last round.

0:36:490:36:51

We put four things up on the board there

0:36:510:36:53

and you've just got to hope for something that is close to something

0:36:530:36:56

-that you might know.

-Yeah.

0:36:560:36:57

Best of luck. Let's see what today's selection looks like.

0:36:570:36:59

We've got...

0:36:590:37:01

THEY LAUGH IN DISBELIEF

0:37:020:37:04

SYMPATHETIC LAUGHTER

0:37:080:37:09

-Oh!

-Right.

0:37:090:37:11

Can we do that again?

0:37:110:37:13

LAUGHTER

0:37:130:37:15

I've no idea... I'm thinking Tom Hardy's co-stars.

0:37:160:37:19

Yeah, shall we just go with that?

0:37:190:37:20

Pick some random actresses and actors, maybe.

0:37:200:37:23

It might be films.

0:37:230:37:24

Let's just go with that. We're not going to get Opera.

0:37:240:37:27

LAUGHTER

0:37:270:37:29

-Tom Hardy's co-stars, please?

-Tom Hardy's co-stars, Richard.

0:37:290:37:32

OK, very best of luck. We're looking for anybody who starred

0:37:320:37:34

alongside Tom Hardy,

0:37:340:37:35

according to IMDB in any of these three films, please.

0:37:350:37:37

So, anyone credited with appearing alongside Tom Hardy

0:37:470:37:50

in one of those three films. Very best of luck.

0:37:500:37:52

Thanks very much indeed.

0:37:520:37:53

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

0:37:530:37:56

All you need to win the jackpot is for just one of those answers

0:37:560:37:58

to be pointless. Are you ready?

0:37:580:37:59

-Yeah.

-Yes.

-OK.

0:38:000:38:02

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

0:38:020:38:04

-Your time starts now.

-OK, right.

0:38:040:38:06

-I haven't seen any of them.

-JACK LAUGHS

0:38:060:38:07

No! Nor me.

0:38:070:38:09

-The Dark Knight Rises, I think.

-It'll have to be an educated guess.

0:38:090:38:11

Yes, we need some obscure actors that would be in that.

0:38:110:38:13

I'm thinking Danny DeVito.

0:38:130:38:15

Really?

0:38:160:38:17

Is he old? He's quite old.

0:38:170:38:18

Mad Max. What's Mad Max about?

0:38:190:38:20

Is that the one with all the four... Those different men?

0:38:200:38:22

-Yeah.

-Is it? OK.

0:38:220:38:23

Thinking about Liam Neeson, like...

0:38:250:38:26

Arnold Schwarzenegger.

0:38:270:38:29

-These are really obvious, aren't they?

-No. Not to me.

0:38:290:38:31

What's the other guy... What's the guy who does Die Hard?

0:38:310:38:34

-Bruce Willis?

-Bruce Willis, yeah.

0:38:350:38:36

And what's that other bald guy?

0:38:360:38:38

That the bald guy that does... Oh, my God!

0:38:380:38:40

-What about Legend? It's very recent.

-What's Legend about?

0:38:410:38:44

It's about boxing.

0:38:440:38:46

-OK.

-I honestly...

0:38:460:38:47

I don't think I've even seen the trailers for these films.

0:38:470:38:49

Oh, my God, we haven't got any and we've got 15 seconds.

0:38:490:38:51

-We'll go with Liam Neeson.

-Yeah. Bruce Willis.

0:38:510:38:54

Ten seconds left.

0:38:540:38:55

How about somebody like Helen Mirren?

0:38:550:38:58

Then we have to pick which film she's in.

0:38:580:38:59

HE CHUCKLES

0:38:590:39:01

-Oh, no. The Dark Knight Rises.

-Yeah, shall we do that?

0:39:010:39:03

-Maybe she's got a cameo.

-MEENA LAUGHS

0:39:030:39:05

OK, that is your time up. I now need your three answers.

0:39:050:39:08

It's never long enough, that minute, is it?

0:39:080:39:10

We're going to say Liam Neeson for Mad Max.

0:39:100:39:12

Liam Neeson.

0:39:120:39:14

And we're going to say... (Bruce Willis?)

0:39:140:39:16

-Bruce Willis, Mad Max.

-Bruce Willis.

0:39:160:39:18

-(Shall we say Helen Mirren?

-Go on.)

0:39:180:39:19

We'll also put Helen Mirren in there, as well.

0:39:190:39:21

Helen Mirren in Mad Max.

0:39:210:39:23

Any of those you'd like to nominate

0:39:230:39:24

-as your most likely Pointless answer?

-I think Liam Neeson.

0:39:240:39:28

I think Liam Neeson, very good one for last.

0:39:280:39:30

Least likely to be pointless?

0:39:300:39:32

BOTH: Helen Mirren. LAUGHTER

0:39:320:39:33

Helen Mirren. OK. And Bruce Willis in the middle.

0:39:330:39:35

OK. Well, let's put those answers up on the board,

0:39:350:39:37

in that order, then. And here they are.

0:39:370:39:39

We've got...

0:39:390:39:40

Well, very good luck.

0:39:430:39:45

If one of these happens to win that jackpot for you,

0:39:450:39:47

£5,000. What would you do that? Jack, you first.

0:39:470:39:50

I'd probably...

0:39:510:39:53

buy a new suit.

0:39:530:39:54

-That'd be nice.

-Just fabulous.

0:39:540:39:56

Any particular kind of suit you're looking for? Gold?

0:39:560:39:58

Yeah, I don't know.

0:39:580:40:00

Meena, what would you like to do with your share?

0:40:000:40:02

-I would definitely go on holiday.

-Mm.

-Possibly to New York.

0:40:020:40:06

-I've been before but I absolutely loved it. So...

-Ooh.

0:40:060:40:08

Very good. Well, best of luck. Your first answer is Helen Mirren.

0:40:080:40:12

In this case, in fact, in all three cases,

0:40:120:40:14

we're looking for cast members of Mad Max: Fury Road, the 2015 film.

0:40:140:40:18

If Helen Mirren is pointless, she will win you £5,000.

0:40:180:40:22

Is she right, though?

0:40:220:40:23

She's not right.

0:40:260:40:28

Sadly, Helen Mirren is not in Mad Max: Fury Road.

0:40:280:40:32

But don't worry, you've got two more answers on the board.

0:40:320:40:35

We've still got Bruce Willis and Liam Neeson waiting up there

0:40:350:40:38

on the bench. Bruce Willis.

0:40:380:40:40

Let's find out if he is in Mad Max: Fury Road.

0:40:400:40:42

If he in it, and he is pointless, he will win you £5,000.

0:40:420:40:45

How many people said Bruce Willis?

0:40:450:40:47

Bruce Willis, I'm afraid, also joining Helen Mirren...

0:40:510:40:54

not in Mad Max: Fury Road.

0:40:540:40:56

So, your last answer is Liam Neeson.

0:40:560:40:58

Let us find out if Liam Neeson was in Mad Max: Fury Road.

0:40:590:41:04

Let's find out how many people said Liam Neeson, if he was.

0:41:040:41:06

For £5,000, is it pointless?

0:41:060:41:08

-No. Bad luck.

-Oh, that's so bad.

0:41:110:41:13

I'm afraid none of them was in Mad Max Fury Road.

0:41:130:41:16

APPLAUSE

0:41:160:41:17

I'm so sorry. It's always tough, though,

0:41:170:41:20

if you get a category and you just don't quite know...

0:41:200:41:22

-Any of them.

-THEY CHUCKLE

0:41:220:41:23

..don't quite know those films. Well, it was a game attempt, anyway.

0:41:230:41:26

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

0:41:260:41:27

that all-important pointless answer,

0:41:270:41:29

so you don't win today's jackpot of £5,000.

0:41:290:41:30

That, therefore, will roll over onto the next show.

0:41:300:41:33

But you've done so well.

0:41:330:41:34

I mean, really, really well, right across the show.

0:41:340:41:37

Lovely low scoring.

0:41:370:41:38

And, for that, you get a wonderful pointless trophy each

0:41:380:41:40

to take home. So, very well done for that, Jack and Meena.

0:41:400:41:43

APPLAUSE

0:41:430:41:44

Yeah. You've been great fun, as well. You know what,

0:41:460:41:49

it's worth a guess, sometimes.

0:41:490:41:50

Like, Liam Neeson is not in Mad Max, but you know what film he is in?

0:41:500:41:53

he's in the Dark Knight Rises,

0:41:530:41:55

and he was a pointless answer, as well.

0:41:550:41:57

AUDIENCE GROANS

0:41:570:41:59

Imagine that. Imagine that.

0:41:590:42:01

Now, actors in the film Legend. Let's take a look at that first.

0:42:010:42:04

The singer Duffy has a role in that film.

0:42:040:42:06

John Sessions plays Lord Boothby.

0:42:060:42:07

Kevin McNally plays Harold Wilson, in the film. Tara Fitzgerald...

0:42:070:42:10

Everyone pointless there apart from David Thewlis, Taron Egerton,

0:42:100:42:13

Christopher Ecclestone and Emily Browning.

0:42:130:42:15

Every other member of the cast was a pointless answer.

0:42:150:42:17

Well done if you said any of those.

0:42:170:42:19

We will move on now to Mad Max: Fury Road.

0:42:190:42:21

Everyone pointless in that apart from Charlize Theron,

0:42:250:42:27

Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

0:42:270:42:29

and Nathan Jones.

0:42:290:42:30

-And The Dark Knight. Some big names here.

-Oh...

0:42:300:42:33

Burn Gorman from Torchwood, Cillian Murphy from Peaky Blinders,

0:42:350:42:37

many other things as well...

0:42:370:42:39

And Liam Neeson. All of those pointless.

0:42:390:42:40

Every one pointless there apart from Christian Bale, Michael Caine,

0:42:400:42:43

Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotilliard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt,

0:42:430:42:46

and Morgan Freeman. Everyone else, a pointless answer.

0:42:460:42:49

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:42:490:42:50

Well, thank you, Jack and Meena.

0:42:500:42:52

I'm sorry you didn't win our jackpot today.

0:42:520:42:54

But that will then roll over onto the next show

0:42:540:42:56

when we will be playing for £6,000.

0:42:560:42:59

APPLAUSE

0:42:590:43:00

It's getting bigger and bigger!

0:43:000:43:02

Join us next time to see if someone can win it.

0:43:020:43:03

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:030:43:06

And it's goodbye from me.

0:43:060:43:07

Goodbye.

0:43:070:43:08

APPLAUSE

0:43:080:43:10

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