0:00:150:00:19

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:210:00:22

Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong, and welcome to Pointless, the show where

0:00:220:00:25

the more obscure your knowledge, the better your chances of winning.

0:00:250:00:29

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:290:00:31

And couple number one.

0:00:350:00:36

My name's Bev, this is my daughter, Georgia,

0:00:360:00:38

-and we're both from Leeds.

-Couple number two.

0:00:380:00:41

I'm KB, and this is my boy, Jack. And we're from Bristol.

0:00:410:00:45

-Couple number three.

-Hi, my name is Dave, originally from Cork.

0:00:450:00:50

This is my partner, Jean, originally from London,

0:00:500:00:52

-and we live in Beckenham in Kent.

-And finally, couple number four.

0:00:520:00:56

Hi, I'm Aidan, and this is Rachel, my friend.

0:00:560:00:59

I'm from Preston, and Rachel is from Horsham.

0:00:590:01:02

And these are today's contestants.

0:01:020:01:04

Thanks very much to all of you.

0:01:060:01:07

We'll find out more about you throughout the show as it

0:01:070:01:10

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

0:01:100:01:13

They say if you chant his name three times while staring directly

0:01:130:01:17

into a mirror, you'll probably get kicked out of that furniture shop.

0:01:170:01:20

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

-Hiya.

0:01:200:01:23

APPLAUSE

0:01:230:01:24

Hi, everybody. Good afternoon.

0:01:240:01:26

Good afternoon. What a show last time.

0:01:280:01:30

Now, that jackpot had been building and building.

0:01:300:01:32

It had gone up to £7,250.

0:01:320:01:36

And then Louis and Marie turned up.

0:01:360:01:39

Marie was a student of the history of art.

0:01:390:01:42

-And the final round, Art came up as a category.

-Just a gift.

0:01:420:01:46

First answer, 1 point.

0:01:460:01:49

Second answer, 1 point.

0:01:490:01:52

But final answer, incorrect. Incorrect.

0:01:520:01:57

So the jackpot continues to rise.

0:01:570:01:59

We've got quite a battle on our hands.

0:01:590:02:01

Only one returning pair from that show, that's Rachel and Aidan, up there on podium four,

0:02:010:02:04

who got knocked out in Round Two,

0:02:040:02:06

so hopefully see a little bit more of them today.

0:02:060:02:08

Well, thank you very much, Richard.

0:02:080:02:10

So, Louis and Marie, as you'll have gathered,

0:02:100:02:12

didn't win the jackpot last time, so we add another £1,000 to that,

0:02:120:02:15

so today's jackpot starts off, will you believe it, at £8,250?

0:02:150:02:19

There we are, proper jackpot.

0:02:190:02:21

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

0:02:230:02:27

So, here's the thing I say at the beginning of every show.

0:02:310:02:33

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

0:02:330:02:36

eliminated. That's just what you have to remember at all times.

0:02:360:02:39

No conferring for the first two rounds.

0:02:390:02:41

Our first category this afternoon

0:02:410:02:44

is Travel. Travel.

0:02:440:02:46

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

0:02:460:02:49

who's going to go second in your pairs?

0:02:490:02:52

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

0:02:520:02:54

OK, and the question is all about...

0:02:580:03:01

Famous Roads and Streets, Richard.

0:03:030:03:05

On each board, we're simply going to show you seven clues to

0:03:050:03:08

famous streets and roads from around the world. You have to tell us what that street or road is.

0:03:080:03:12

There's going to be 14 in all to have a go at, at home,

0:03:120:03:14

-so very best of luck.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:03:140:03:16

So, we are looking for the names of these famous roads or streets,

0:03:160:03:19

and here is our first board of clues. We have...

0:03:190:03:22

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

0:03:580:04:00

Bev, a warm welcome to Pointless. Lovely to have you here. From Leeds?

0:04:300:04:35

-Yes.

-And what do you do in Leeds?

0:04:350:04:37

-I'm an office manager for a plastics company.

-A plastics...

0:04:370:04:41

So what kind of plastics company, what do they make?

0:04:410:04:43

Everything we make is bespoke, from aeroplanes to...

0:04:430:04:47

Do you make the things that biscuits sit in, in assorted

0:04:470:04:51

-biscuit tins?

-No.

-That's a shame. But things for aeroplanes.

0:04:510:04:56

-So moulded plastic for aeroplanes.

-Yeah, cars, aeroplanes.

0:04:560:04:59

Ah. What are your interests aside from moulded plastics?

0:04:590:05:01

-I collect Russian dolls.

-Wow.

0:05:010:05:05

I'm now going to ask, how many sets of Russian dolls?

0:05:050:05:08

-Not the individual dolls themselves.

-Approximately 110.

0:05:080:05:11

That's quite scary. LAUGHTER

0:05:110:05:13

Now, Bev, famous streets and roads.

0:05:130:05:16

Not good for me, but the only one I can think is the street in

0:05:170:05:20

-New York, Wall Street.

-Wall Street, says Bev.

0:05:200:05:23

Let's see how many of our 100 people agree with Bev. Wall Street.

0:05:230:05:27

It is right.

0:05:290:05:31

Oh. 73. APPLAUSE

0:05:310:05:33

-It's not bad.

-Better than 100.

-Not bad.

0:05:330:05:37

It's a pretty tough board, that, I think. Even that one,

0:05:370:05:39

you're kind of thinking, "What's that?" And as soon as you work out Wall Street,

0:05:390:05:42

-you think, "Of course, of course." But a tough board, I think.

-Tough board.

0:05:420:05:46

-Now, KB.

-Yeah.

-Tell us about KB. How come?

0:05:460:05:50

Well, my name is Kambiz, which is an Iranian name.

0:05:500:05:54

And because... I don't want to be presumptuous,

0:05:540:05:57

-but I'm assuming most people won't be able to pronounce it.

-Right.

0:05:570:06:00

-So it's much easier to shorten it to two syllables, KB.

-Yeah, there we are.

0:06:000:06:04

Fair enough. KB, what do you do?

0:06:040:06:06

I'm a bar supervisor in Bristol, Bristol's busiest bar, in fact.

0:06:060:06:10

That's your estimation,

0:06:100:06:12

or is that according to official busyness figures?

0:06:120:06:14

I'd like to think it is official busyness figures.

0:06:140:06:17

Does "busiest" mean it is the most crowded,

0:06:170:06:20

-or it's the people who drink the most ferociously?

-Probably both.

-OK.

0:06:200:06:25

So people are literally queueing for their next drink while they're downing the first.

0:06:250:06:28

Oh, that is busy. There we are. Now, KBE, streets and ways.

0:06:280:06:32

How are we feeling about this?

0:06:320:06:34

I'm just going to have to go quite easy, I think.

0:06:340:06:38

I thought you were going to say, "I'm just going to have to go."

0:06:380:06:40

I was thinking, "Wow, KB does not like this round."

0:06:400:06:44

It'll be embarrassing if it's wrong,

0:06:440:06:45

but I think I'll go Champs-Elysees, the thoroughfare in Paris.

0:06:450:06:49

In Paris, there we are. Champs-Elysees, says KB.

0:06:490:06:52

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

0:06:520:06:55

It is right. Well, Wall Street was 73 and you've passed that.

0:06:570:07:00

Down it goes, still going down, look at that, 39 for the Champs-Elysees.

0:07:000:07:03

Well done. APPLAUSE

0:07:030:07:06

Good answer.

0:07:060:07:08

Yeah, translates as Elysian fields, Champs-Elysees.

0:07:080:07:11

Used to be vegetable gardens up to the 17th century.

0:07:110:07:15

-Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Jean, welcome.

-Welcome. Welcome?

0:07:150:07:19

-No, no. Thank you very much.

-Thank you.

-LAUGHTER

0:07:190:07:22

I don't live here either, it's nice to be welcomed onto the set.

0:07:220:07:26

Jean, how lovely to have you here.

0:07:260:07:28

Originally from...London, but now you live in...

0:07:280:07:32

-Kent.

-That's right. And what keeps you busy in Kent?

0:07:320:07:36

Well, I have six grandchildren, and Dave has two grandchildren,

0:07:360:07:39

-so that is quite a lot between us.

-Yes.

-And I'm very interested in the arts.

0:07:390:07:44

-I keep busy. Yeah.

-Are you as busy as, say,

0:07:440:07:47

-a bar in Bristol?

-I doubt it.

-LAUGHTER

0:07:470:07:50

-That does sound...

-I doubt it.

-..very busy.

0:07:500:07:53

And what are your interests, other than...

0:07:530:07:55

The arts. I like cooking, I walk a lot.

0:07:550:07:59

-Mm.

-Um, yeah, just potter about, really.

0:07:590:08:02

Excellent. And have you been down any of these alleyways and avenues?

0:08:020:08:05

I have, actually.

0:08:050:08:07

I have. And I am going to take the first one,

0:08:070:08:11

because it is a road I have walked, and I believe it is the Via Dolorosa.

0:08:110:08:14

The Via Dolorosa. Via Dolorosa, says Jean.

0:08:140:08:17

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

0:08:170:08:20

It is right, 73 is our highest point and you've passed that.

0:08:230:08:26

39, our lowest point and you've passed that.

0:08:260:08:29

Look at that, Via Dolorosa, down to 10.

0:08:290:08:31

APPLAUSE

0:08:310:08:32

Nothing "Dolorosa" about that.

0:08:320:08:34

Well played, Jean, very nice answer.

0:08:360:08:38

It says here it's about a ten-minute walk. Is that your experience?

0:08:380:08:41

-I think it was a bit longer than that.

-A bit longer than that. It should be ten minutes.

0:08:410:08:44

I suppose if everyone else is walking quite slowly.

0:08:440:08:46

-It depends if the bars have just kicked out.

-Oh, yeah.

0:08:460:08:49

-Some busy bars on that strip.

-LAUGHTER

0:08:490:08:52

-There are. On the Via Dolorosa.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:08:520:08:55

Now then, Rachel.

0:08:550:08:57

Rachel, welcome back. Remind us what you do, Rachel.

0:08:570:09:00

-I'm a retail manager in a department store.

-By day.

-By day.

-By day.

0:09:000:09:05

-But by night, Rachel...

-I am...

0:09:050:09:08

-an '80s DJ.

-A superstar DJ.

0:09:080:09:11

-You said last time that you do it with a friend.

-Yes, my friend Emma.

0:09:110:09:14

Very good. And do you have a favourite band from the '80s?

0:09:140:09:16

-You said you were an '80s DJ.

-Well, I love rock. Kiss is my favourite.

0:09:160:09:22

-Or Motley Crue.

-Or Motley Crue. Very good indeed.

0:09:220:09:25

Now, Rachel, this board's all yours.

0:09:250:09:28

So, there's only one that I actually know,

0:09:280:09:30

and I'm so pleased that it hasn't been taken already.

0:09:300:09:32

-Which is the orbital motorway, and it is the M25.

-The M25, says Rachel.

0:09:320:09:36

OK, let's see how many of our 100 people said the M25.

0:09:360:09:40

It's right.

0:09:430:09:44

Wow, 56. Look at that. 56.

0:09:450:09:48

APPLAUSE

0:09:480:09:50

Who would have thought the M25 scoring lower than Wall Street?

0:09:520:09:55

Anyway, there we are. Richard.

0:09:550:09:57

Yeah, it was the world's largest city bypass, but now it is no longer.

0:09:570:10:01

The Berliner ring is longer.

0:10:010:10:03

Now, these are all tough answers, the ones that remain.

0:10:030:10:06

-The avenue in Berlin lined with lime trees?

-Unter den Linden.

0:10:060:10:09

Unter den Linden. Correct.

0:10:090:10:10

And that would have scored 5 points.

0:10:100:10:13

The site of the President of Singapore's residence

0:10:130:10:15

is Orchard Road. Would have scored you 1 point.

0:10:150:10:17

Very well done if you said that. But a pointless answer...

0:10:170:10:20

I've walked across this road, it does take a long time.

0:10:200:10:23

And it is the 9th of July Avenue in Buenos Aires. 9th of July Avenue.

0:10:230:10:27

Pointless answer, so very well done if you said that.

0:10:270:10:29

I've walked across it, but I could not name it.

0:10:290:10:31

-I thought it was the 7th of July Avenue.

-Oh.

0:10:310:10:34

-Oh, can you imagine?

-Maybe when you started walking across it,

0:10:340:10:37

it was. LAUGHTER

0:10:370:10:39

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

0:10:390:10:43

Well, 10, Jean, very well done to you.

0:10:430:10:45

Via Dolorosa, best answer of that pass.

0:10:450:10:47

Jean and Dave looking pretty strong at this point.

0:10:470:10:49

Then up to 39, where we find KB and Jack, well done.

0:10:490:10:52

Then up to 56, where we find Rachel and Aidan.

0:10:520:10:54

Then 73, Bev and Georgia.

0:10:540:10:57

A surprisingly high score for Wall Street there. Stockade.

0:10:570:11:00

Gave too much away, maybe.

0:11:000:11:02

Anyway, Georgia, we need a low score from you to keep you in the game, so best of luck.

0:11:020:11:05

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

0:11:050:11:09

OK, we are going to put seven more clues up on the board.

0:11:110:11:13

And here they are. We have got...

0:11:130:11:16

I shall read those all one last time.

0:11:500:11:52

There we are. Now, Aidan.

0:12:240:12:27

Aidan. Remind us what you do.

0:12:270:12:29

-I'm a drum teacher.

-You are a drum... How many pupils do you have?

0:12:290:12:33

Currently about 14, 15.

0:12:330:12:35

Wow. And they come weekly or so, do they, to see you?

0:12:350:12:38

I guess they all practise. Have they got drum kits at home?

0:12:380:12:42

Yeah, a lot of electric kits.

0:12:420:12:44

That's the answer, isn't it, electric kits.

0:12:440:12:46

-It's a big ask, isn't it?

-We turn them down.

-Yeah, exactly.

0:12:460:12:49

Aidan, what would you like to go for? You're currently on 56.

0:12:490:12:53

The high scorers are Georgia and Bev here.

0:12:530:12:55

So 16 is your target score to avoid becoming the new high scorers.

0:12:550:12:59

I can't say I'm 100% on all of them.

0:12:590:13:02

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

0:13:020:13:05

-I'm going for Broadway.

-Broadway.

0:13:050:13:08

-Yeah.

-Broadway. OK, let's see. Here is your red line.

0:13:080:13:10

You have to get below that.

0:13:100:13:12

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

0:13:120:13:15

It's right.

0:13:180:13:19

45! Not bad! APPLAUSE

0:13:200:13:24

Not bad. 45 for Broadway takes your total up to 101.

0:13:240:13:27

Broadway been an entertainment centre since PT Barnum opened

0:13:270:13:31

a theatre there in the 19th century.

0:13:310:13:33

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:13:330:13:35

Now, Dave, welcome. Great to have you here.

0:13:350:13:38

Lovely to have your Cork accent on the programme.

0:13:380:13:41

What do you do, Dave?

0:13:410:13:42

Well, officially, I'm retired,

0:13:420:13:44

but I sneak in a little part-time job every now and again.

0:13:440:13:48

And what part-time...?

0:13:480:13:49

I work for a company that delivers catering to private jets.

0:13:490:13:55

How's about that? How's about that?

0:13:550:13:58

I'm imagining the catering on private jets is quite high-end.

0:13:580:14:02

-Very high-end, both price-wise and the food. So...

-That's quite fun.

0:14:020:14:07

And if there's any surplus,

0:14:070:14:09

any left over, you get to take it home, maybe?

0:14:090:14:13

We are under pain of death not to eat any surplus from the aircraft.

0:14:130:14:18

Why?

0:14:180:14:19

Because usually the owners of the aeroplanes take the food home themselves.

0:14:190:14:23

Oh, I see. I suppose they've paid for it. But still, really...

0:14:230:14:27

I know, it's... It's a bit unfair, but...

0:14:270:14:29

So there you are, with honey-dipped larks' tongues being passed up.

0:14:290:14:34

Ah, well.

0:14:340:14:35

-Dave, there you are on 10. 90 or less gets you through.

-Yeah.

0:14:350:14:40

I...

0:14:400:14:42

I'm nervous.

0:14:430:14:44

I know the answer in Edinburgh,

0:14:440:14:47

the word in it is Mile,

0:14:470:14:49

but I can't recall whether there is

0:14:490:14:52

something ahead of it in the name,

0:14:520:14:55

so I'm going to take a chance on the Golden Mile.

0:14:550:14:59

The Golden Mile. You can hear the rejoicing of the crowd.

0:14:590:15:03

The Golden Mile, says Dave. Let's find out if it's right.

0:15:030:15:07

Here is your red line - nice and high.

0:15:070:15:09

You just have to get down to it, that's all.

0:15:090:15:12

Let's find out whether the Golden Mile gets you there.

0:15:120:15:15

No!

0:15:170:15:18

Dave, I'm so sorry!

0:15:190:15:21

I'm afraid that is an incorrect

0:15:210:15:22

answer and it takes your total

0:15:220:15:23

up to 110, scoring 100, as it does.

0:15:230:15:25

Dave, I'm sorry, not the Golden Mile.

0:15:250:15:27

I'll give you the correct answer at the end of the pass.

0:15:270:15:31

Now, then, Jack, welcome to the show. Good to have you here.

0:15:310:15:35

-Also from Bristol.

-Yep.

-What do you do, Jack?

0:15:350:15:38

I do exactly the same job as KB here, I have to do most of his work.

0:15:380:15:41

-Oh, so you supervise the bar as well?

-I supervise the supervisor.

0:15:410:15:45

-Is KB diligent, conscientious?

-All of the above.

-That's good.

0:15:450:15:49

-Whose idea was it to come on the show?

-Mine, originally.

0:15:490:15:53

-We both watched it but I applied.

-OK.

0:15:530:15:55

I guess it's on while you're just getting ready for the busiest

0:15:550:15:57

-bar in Bristol to open its doors.

-Exactly.

0:15:570:16:00

What sort of prep to you do during Pointless?

0:16:000:16:02

Do you maybe time it? "It's the head-to-head and I haven't even chopped my limes!"

0:16:020:16:06

Exactly, cut a few limes, cut a few lemons, open the doors up.

0:16:060:16:09

Right you are.

0:16:090:16:10

Now, Jack, there you are on 39.

0:16:100:16:12

110 is the high score there.

0:16:120:16:14

Dave and Jean in front of you.

0:16:140:16:15

If you can score 70 or less,

0:16:150:16:17

you are into the next round.

0:16:170:16:19

How are we liking these streets?

0:16:190:16:21

I'm not liking it a lot.

0:16:210:16:23

Pretty sure I know one, so I'm just going safe with the one I know.

0:16:230:16:26

-North London road on the Beatles album is Abbey Road.

-Abbey Road,

0:16:260:16:29

says Jack. Abbey Road. There's your red line.

0:16:290:16:32

Get below that with Abbey Road, you're through to the next round.

0:16:320:16:35

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

0:16:350:16:37

It's right.

0:16:390:16:40

You've done it! Very well done indeed! 62.

0:16:400:16:42

APPLAUSE You needed 70, 62 you've got.

0:16:420:16:46

101 is your total.

0:16:460:16:47

-Very well done.

-Well played, Jack.

0:16:470:16:49

Did exactly what you needed to do there. It's always full of tourists.

0:16:490:16:52

-Always!

-It's actually not in the same place as the original.

0:16:520:16:56

It's moved about three metres.

0:16:560:16:57

For traffic management reasons, which I guess is fair enough.

0:16:570:17:01

-I suppose it's true.

-In a funny kind of way.

0:17:010:17:03

Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Georgia, we come to you.

0:17:030:17:06

You've been so patient all this time waiting.

0:17:060:17:09

-Now, Georgia, what do you do?

-I'm a support worker.

0:17:090:17:12

Support worker in what industry?

0:17:120:17:14

In care,

0:17:140:17:15

so I look after four men with learning disabilities in their home.

0:17:150:17:19

-Right you are.

-I just help them with their daily tasks, take them out, you know,

0:17:190:17:22

Go to concerts and they like nights out and things like that.

0:17:220:17:25

Oh, that's nice. That allows them to stay independent,

0:17:250:17:28

relatively independent, and stay at home. Good for you.

0:17:280:17:31

What do you do with your spare time?

0:17:310:17:32

I've got a little girl, she's two, so I spend a lot of time with her.

0:17:320:17:36

-She'll be watching now, I imagine.

-Yeah.

-What's her name?

-Sophia.

0:17:360:17:39

Hi, Sophia.

0:17:390:17:40

Now, Georgia, this board is all yours. You're on 73.

0:17:400:17:43

You have to score 36 or less.

0:17:430:17:45

Will you talk us through and fill in the famous streets?

0:17:450:17:50

I knew one, Abbey Road,

0:17:500:17:51

and it's gone. I really...

0:17:510:17:53

I'm going to have to pluck

0:17:530:17:56

something out of thin air.

0:17:560:17:58

I'll go for the road in Bangkok and

0:17:580:18:01

say that it's called Bangkok Road.

0:18:010:18:03

LAUGHTER

0:18:030:18:04

Bangkok Road, says Georgia. Let's see if that's right.

0:18:040:18:08

There's a London Road leading into London,

0:18:080:18:10

why shouldn't there be a Bangkok Road?

0:18:100:18:13

Anyway, there is your red line. Let's see if it's right.

0:18:130:18:15

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

0:18:150:18:19

Oooh... Bad luck, Georgia. I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer.

0:18:210:18:24

-Scores you 100 points, takes your total up to 173.

-Yeah, sorry.

0:18:240:18:28

They call it the centre of the backpacker universe, this road.

0:18:280:18:30

Do you know it? You'll know it when...

0:18:300:18:33

-It's the Khao San Road.

-Khao San Road.

0:18:330:18:36

Would have scored one point, so a very tough answer.

0:18:360:18:38

Well done if you said that at home. It's not the Golden Mile, it is...

0:18:380:18:42

-The Royal Mile.

-The Royal Mile,

0:18:420:18:44

I'm afraid. Would have scored 17.

0:18:440:18:46

Now, the coastal road, the Australian one,

0:18:460:18:48

is called the Great Ocean Road.

0:18:480:18:50

Two points for that.

0:18:500:18:52

Built by returning soldiers from World War I, the Great Ocean Road.

0:18:520:18:55

The ancient Roman road is the Appian Way.

0:18:550:18:58

-Would have scored you eight points. And the US highway...

-Route 66.

0:18:580:19:03

Route 66, of course it is.

0:19:030:19:05

And that would have scored 58. So Khao San Road the best answer on the board.

0:19:050:19:08

Thanks, Richard.

0:19:080:19:10

So at the end of our first round, I'm afraid the pair heading

0:19:100:19:12

home with that high score of 173, Georgia and Bev, it is you.

0:19:120:19:15

I'm so sorry. Lovely having you on the show.

0:19:150:19:17

See you again next time. Look forward to that.

0:19:170:19:19

-Thank you.

-Meantime, thanks very much, Georgia and Bev.

0:19:190:19:21

APPLAUSE

0:19:210:19:23

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

0:19:240:19:28

So here we are, down to three pairs of contestants.

0:19:320:19:36

It's getting cosy now, isn't it?

0:19:360:19:37

And obviously it will get even smaller when we get down to

0:19:370:19:39

the head-to-head. But you've all done well.

0:19:390:19:41

You all broke the 100 point mark, which is interesting.

0:19:410:19:44

Yeah, two 101s and one 110 in the middle.

0:19:440:19:48

So you're all quite close together. But best of luck for our next round.

0:19:480:19:51

Our category for Round Two today is...

0:19:510:19:55

A nice cheery round there. Shakespearean Deaths.

0:19:550:19:59

Could you all decide who's going to go first and who's going to go second?

0:19:590:20:03

Whoever is going first, please step up to the podium.

0:20:030:20:06

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

0:20:080:20:11

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many...

0:20:110:20:15

Richard?

0:20:220:20:23

We're looking for any character whose name is in the title of

0:20:230:20:26

a Shakespeare play who dies in the play, please.

0:20:260:20:29

Thank you very much indeed. So, Jack, we come to you first.

0:20:290:20:34

Um...

0:20:340:20:36

I'm going to go for...

0:20:370:20:39

-Romeo.

-Romeo, says Jack. Let's see if that's right.

0:20:420:20:46

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

0:20:460:20:48

It's right.

0:20:490:20:52

67.

0:20:520:20:53

That's not bad! APPLAUSE

0:20:530:20:55

Not bad.

0:20:550:20:56

There's a lot of pressure on the first podium in

0:20:580:21:00

-a round about Shakespearian deaths, I would say.

-Yes.

-Well done.

0:21:000:21:03

-A lot of spoiler alerts in this round, I have to say.

-Yeah, I know!

0:21:030:21:06

If you haven't read any Shakespeare, I would maybe go into the

0:21:060:21:08

-kitchen for a bit.

-Yeah!

0:21:080:21:09

If you don't want to know the result, look away now.

0:21:090:21:11

Thanks, Richard.

0:21:110:21:13

-Jean?

-Right, I'm going to go for a fairly obvious one - Julius Caesar.

0:21:130:21:19

Julius Caesar, says Jane.

0:21:190:21:21

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

0:21:210:21:23

What about that, Jean! 14! Not so obvious.

0:21:310:21:35

APPLAUSE

0:21:350:21:36

-Not so obvious.

-Well played, Jean.

0:21:360:21:39

He died on the last show as well, didn't he, Julius Caesar?

0:21:390:21:41

-Oh, he's dying all over the place.

-Goodness me, he's a busy man.

0:21:410:21:45

Is it less terrifying than it first seems, this question?

0:21:450:21:47

-When you first hear it you think, "Oh, my goodness."

-Yeah.

0:21:470:21:50

-But actually, there's answers out there.

-There are answers out there.

0:21:500:21:53

There certainly are. Aidan?

0:21:530:21:55

Um... I know absolutely no Shakespeare,

0:21:550:21:58

so I'm going to have to guess.

0:21:580:22:00

Um...

0:22:000:22:02

-Richard III? Is that a play?

-Richard III, says Aidan.

0:22:030:22:06

Let's see if that's right.

0:22:060:22:08

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

0:22:080:22:11

Absolutely right.

0:22:130:22:14

Well, 14 is our lowest score so far.

0:22:160:22:18

21 is what you get for Richard III. APPLAUSE

0:22:180:22:21

HE CHUCKLES No-one more surprised than Aidan!

0:22:210:22:26

He dies shortly after he says,

0:22:260:22:27

"A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse."

0:22:270:22:30

And shortly before someone says, "Does anyone know a good car park in Leicester?"

0:22:300:22:33

LAUGHTER

0:22:330:22:35

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

0:22:350:22:38

Let's take a look at the scores. 14, Jean. Very well done.

0:22:380:22:40

The best score of that pass.

0:22:400:22:42

Jean and Dave reigning supreme at this point.

0:22:420:22:44

Then up to 21, where we find Aidan and Rachel.

0:22:440:22:46

Then 67 is where we find Jack and KB.

0:22:460:22:49

KB, you're not way ahead, but a nice score from you will keep you

0:22:490:22:53

in the game, so good luck with that. We're coming back down the line now.

0:22:530:22:56

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:22:560:22:59

OK, so, Rachel, remember, we're looking for the name of any

0:23:010:23:04

Shakespeare title character who dies in a play that bears their name.

0:23:040:23:08

There you are on 21. The high scorers are KB and Jack on 67.

0:23:080:23:13

So 45 or less assures you of a place in the head-to-head.

0:23:130:23:17

Think of that lovely jackpot.

0:23:170:23:19

It's going to have to be quite an obvious one.

0:23:190:23:21

But it's just which obvious one? Um...

0:23:230:23:26

-And hopefully, he dies, actually, in this one.

-I like that!

0:23:260:23:31

-I'm going to say King Lear.

-King Lear, says Rachel.

0:23:310:23:34

Here is your red line.

0:23:340:23:35

If you can get below this red line with King Lear,

0:23:350:23:38

you are in the head-to-head.

0:23:380:23:40

How many of our 100 people said King Lear?

0:23:400:23:42

It's right.

0:23:430:23:45

Keep going, keep going.

0:23:450:23:46

There you are, you're in.

0:23:460:23:48

Very well done - 14!

0:23:500:23:52

APPLAUSE

0:23:520:23:53

Joining Jean on the lowest score.

0:23:530:23:55

-35 is your total.

-Very nicely played, Rachel. Well done.

0:23:550:23:58

It was banned for ten years in 1810 to 1820,

0:23:580:24:02

when George III was going through his bouts of insanity,

0:24:020:24:04

-because of the famous mad scene.

-Oh, yes!

0:24:040:24:06

-They thought it was in poor taste.

-Ooh!

0:24:060:24:09

Interesting. Now, Dave.

0:24:090:24:11

Panic has set in.

0:24:110:24:14

-My three answers have gone.

-Mm.

0:24:140:24:17

I'm really struggling on this. Um...

0:24:170:24:20

I have to say something, and she didn't die,

0:24:210:24:23

but I'll have to say Juliet.

0:24:230:24:25

-Juliet, says Dave.

-Yeah.

0:24:250:24:27

Didn't she die?

0:24:270:24:29

-Did she?

-Let's find out! LAUGHTER

0:24:290:24:33

There is your red line. How many of our 100 people said Juliet?

0:24:330:24:38

Not bad, Dave. Not bad at all.

0:24:420:24:45

67 takes your total up to 81.

0:24:450:24:48

I think that might be good enough to keep you in the game.

0:24:480:24:51

That's why you should never pay any attention to Shakespeare,

0:24:510:24:53

otherwise you wouldn't have known that was wrong

0:24:530:24:55

-LAUGHTER

-and you wouldn't have said it.

0:24:550:24:57

-It's nice that she scores exactly the same as Romeo.

-That is nice.

0:24:570:25:00

Isn't that lovely? They both got 67. The star-crossed lovers.

0:25:000:25:03

-There you are.

-Sweet.

-Very nice.

0:25:030:25:06

Nicely said, Richard. KB, we come to you.

0:25:060:25:09

I might as well kiss goodbye to that sweet jackpot, I think.

0:25:090:25:14

Come on, KB! You've got some good answers there.

0:25:140:25:16

I couldn't be less well versed on Shakespeare.

0:25:160:25:20

OK, well, 13 is what you need to score.

0:25:200:25:23

I mean, I know a few names in association with

0:25:230:25:27

-Shakespeare...

-In association?

0:25:270:25:28

Well, they might be good enough if one of them is also the name

0:25:280:25:31

-of a play.

-Yeah.

0:25:310:25:32

I mean, the most obscure I can think of is Titus Andronicus.

0:25:320:25:36

-I don't know if that's...

-Titus Andronicus, says KB.

0:25:360:25:39

OK, here is your red line.

0:25:390:25:41

If you get below that with Titus Andronicus,

0:25:410:25:43

you are through to the next round.

0:25:430:25:45

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

0:25:450:25:48

ALEXANDER CHUCKLES

0:25:500:25:52

Yup. APPLAUSE

0:25:560:25:59

Six for Titus Andronicus,

0:25:590:26:01

taking your total up to 73.

0:26:010:26:03

Yeah.

0:26:030:26:05

You're not that well versed in Shakespeare, but versed enough!

0:26:060:26:10

That was very nicely done, KB, very well played.

0:26:100:26:13

There are 14 deaths in all.

0:26:130:26:14

It's one of the bloodiest plays, Titus Andronicus.

0:26:140:26:17

Good news for you, he was one of them.

0:26:170:26:19

Now, there's two pointless answers here.

0:26:190:26:22

I bet you'll be quite good on this. Have you got any ideas?

0:26:220:26:25

-King John?

-King John. If you'd said that, it's a pointless answer.

0:26:250:26:29

-Hey!

-Very well done! There's only two pointless answers in all.

0:26:290:26:32

-King John is one of them and...

-Cymbeline... No, I don't know...

0:26:320:26:36

Timon.

0:26:360:26:37

-Timon of Athens. There we are.

-He also would have scored you nothing.

0:26:370:26:41

So one point for Henry VI, two for Henry IV, three for Antony,

0:26:410:26:45

out of Antony and Cleopatra.

0:26:450:26:46

Three for Coriolanus, four for Cleopatra,

0:26:460:26:49

out of Antony and Cleopatra.

0:26:490:26:51

So Titus Andronicus a very good score - very few below that.

0:26:510:26:54

15 for Othello. You would have got 32 for Macbeth.

0:26:540:26:59

And the top three we've already heard - Romeo and Juliet

0:26:590:27:01

for 67, and third place was Hamlet.

0:27:010:27:04

-39 points.

-Brilliant!

0:27:040:27:06

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

0:27:060:27:09

So at the end of our second round, I'm afraid the pair heading home

0:27:090:27:12

with their high score of 81, it's Dave and Jean.

0:27:120:27:15

Dave, it's awful, isn't it, when all your answers...

0:27:150:27:17

You had some good answers there and they were just taken one by one.

0:27:170:27:20

Titus Andronicus, though. Might you have come forward with that?

0:27:200:27:24

-No, thanks.

-Well, there we are.

0:27:240:27:26

Dave and Jane, we'll see you again next time.

0:27:260:27:28

-Looking forward to that already.

-Thank you.

0:27:280:27:30

Meantime, thanks very much for playing, Dave and Jean.

0:27:300:27:32

APPLAUSE

0:27:320:27:34

But for the remaining two pairs,

0:27:340:27:37

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

0:27:370:27:39

Congratulations, Rachel, Aidan, Jack and KB.

0:27:440:27:46

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

0:27:460:27:49

massive jackpot, which currently stands, let us not forget, at...

0:27:490:27:53

AUDIENCE: Ooooh!

0:27:540:27:56

Oh, it always gets a bit more exciting at this point.

0:27:590:28:01

Obviously because you can start playing as teams.

0:28:010:28:03

You can confer before you give your answers.

0:28:030:28:05

The first person to win two questions will be playing for

0:28:050:28:07

that jackpot. So it's not that far away.

0:28:070:28:10

It is within touching distance, ladies and gentlemen.

0:28:100:28:12

This is very exciting - we've got our '80s DJ,

0:28:120:28:15

our drum teacher and our two guys from Bristol's busiest bar.

0:28:150:28:19

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

0:28:190:28:22

APPLAUSE

0:28:220:28:23

Here is the first question, and it concerns...

0:28:280:28:31

British Wild Flowers, Richard.

0:28:340:28:36

We're going to show you five pictures of British wild flowers.

0:28:360:28:38

We're also going to give you the initials of their names' first and last letters.

0:28:380:28:41

Can you identify them, please? Very best of luck.

0:28:410:28:44

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

0:28:440:28:47

There we go. Now, Rachel and Aidan, you've been our lowest scorers,

0:29:150:29:18

so you will go first.

0:29:180:29:20

You're free to confer.

0:29:200:29:22

-I think it's camomile.

-Yeah.

-B is buddleia.

-Yeah.

0:29:220:29:26

INDISTINCT

0:29:260:29:28

We're going to go for B, and say bulrush.

0:29:330:29:36

B, bulrush, say Rachel and Aidan. B, bulrush.

0:29:360:29:39

Now, Jack and KB, those flowers are all yours. Talk us through them.

0:29:390:29:43

I'd love to talk you through them!

0:29:430:29:45

It's not going to happen.

0:29:450:29:46

I think we only know one of them.

0:29:460:29:48

Yeah. We'll go for the easy one. D.

0:29:480:29:51

-Lily of the valley.

-D, lily of the valley.

0:29:510:29:53

So we have bulrush and lily of the valley.

0:29:530:29:56

Rachel and Aidan said bulrush for B.

0:29:560:29:58

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

0:29:580:30:01

Please be right...

0:30:010:30:02

It's right.

0:30:030:30:05

44. APPLAUSE

0:30:080:30:10

44 for bulrush.

0:30:130:30:14

Now, Jack and KB have gone for lily of the valley for D.

0:30:140:30:17

Let's see if that's right.

0:30:170:30:18

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

0:30:180:30:21

It's right.

0:30:230:30:24

Oh, 59. APPLAUSE

0:30:250:30:27

59.

0:30:270:30:29

But quite close.

0:30:290:30:30

But, Rachel and Aidan, well done, you won that one,

0:30:300:30:33

which means after one question you are up 1-0.

0:30:330:30:35

Let's fill in the rest of these. How are you on British wild flowers?

0:30:350:30:38

I'm not great, I have to say.

0:30:380:30:39

I'm pretty good... A, chamomile.

0:30:390:30:41

Chamomile, yep.

0:30:410:30:43

It should be tea, right?

0:30:430:30:44

That would have scored you 14.

0:30:440:30:46

Yup. C is cornflower.

0:30:460:30:49

That would have scored you 30.

0:30:490:30:51

Now, the last one...

0:30:510:30:53

This is where I'm afraid I...

0:30:530:30:54

It's possibly the most poisonous

0:30:540:30:57

indigenous plant in the UK.

0:30:570:31:00

The hemlock water dropwort.

0:31:000:31:03

-Oh!

-Hemlock water dropwort.

-It looks so nice, Richard.

0:31:030:31:07

-It does, but it's not nice.

-Oh, right.

-Don't eat them.

0:31:070:31:11

No! Oh... Yeah! There we are. No touching the hemlock.

0:31:110:31:15

OK, so there we are. Jack and KB, here comes your second question.

0:31:150:31:18

You get to answer it first,

0:31:180:31:19

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

0:31:190:31:22

Our second question today concerns...

0:31:220:31:25

BBC 6 Music Presenters, Richard.

0:31:280:31:29

We're going to show you the names now of five BBC 6 Music presenters,

0:31:290:31:32

but we've put them in anagram form.

0:31:320:31:34

Can you unscramble them all?

0:31:340:31:36

They all were or are part of bands as well, all five of these.

0:31:360:31:39

-Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:31:390:31:42

Let's reveal our five anagrams. And here they come.

0:31:420:31:45

Jack and KB, you will go first.

0:32:060:32:09

INDISTINCT

0:32:090:32:12

Um...

0:32:130:32:14

Yeah, we're going to go with the third one, Pulp,

0:32:140:32:17

which is Jarvis Cocker.

0:32:170:32:18

Jarvis Cocker, say Jack and KB.

0:32:180:32:20

Jarvis Cocker. So, Rachel and Aidan,

0:32:200:32:24

do you want to talk us through the board?

0:32:240:32:26

So the top one is Huey Morgan.

0:32:260:32:28

Then you've got Lauren Laverne,

0:32:280:32:30

then Marc Riley

0:32:300:32:31

then Cerys Matthews.

0:32:310:32:34

Which one do you think?

0:32:340:32:35

-Marc Riley.

-Marc Riley, yeah.

0:32:350:32:36

You're going for Marc Riley.

0:32:360:32:38

OK, so we have Jarvis Cocker and Marc Riley.

0:32:380:32:40

Jack and KB went for Jarvis Cocker - let's see if that's right.

0:32:400:32:43

Let's see how many people said it.

0:32:430:32:45

It's right.

0:32:470:32:49

47. APPLAUSE

0:32:520:32:53

47 for Jarvis Cocker.

0:32:530:32:55

Rachel and Aidan, meanwhile, have gone for Marc Riley.

0:32:570:32:59

Let's see if that's right.

0:32:590:33:01

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

0:33:010:33:04

It's right.

0:33:070:33:09

And it wins you the point!

0:33:090:33:11

Very well done indeed. Down it goes!

0:33:110:33:14

Very well done indeed! APPLAUSE

0:33:140:33:15

Marc Riley - great answer there.

0:33:150:33:18

And it means, Rachel and Aidan,

0:33:210:33:23

that you are straight through to the final after only two questions.

0:33:230:33:26

-2-0, very well done indeed.

-Very impressively done.

0:33:260:33:29

You got all of them right and you chose the best answer of

0:33:290:33:32

the ones you knew as well.

0:33:320:33:33

6 Music fans or just music fans, so you knew them from the bands?

0:33:330:33:36

-Music and bands.

-Perfect combination, then.

0:33:360:33:38

Perfect combination.

0:33:380:33:40

Marc Riley, one of the nicest men you could ever meet as well.

0:33:400:33:42

Also one of the 14 million people who have been in The Fall over the years.

0:33:420:33:45

-Yeah!

-Many people have.

0:33:450:33:47

Huey Morgan, absolutely right, from Fun Lovin' Criminals.

0:33:470:33:51

He would have scored you nine points.

0:33:510:33:53

He would have got beaten by another very lovely person, Lauren Laverne,

0:33:530:33:58

who would have scored you 10.

0:33:580:33:59

Quite a big score down there for Cerys Matthews.

0:33:590:34:03

She would have scored you 39.

0:34:030:34:05

She may well be lovely, I'm passing no comments - I've not met her.

0:34:050:34:08

-I have, she's lovely.

-Is she? She seems nice.

-She's very lovely.

0:34:080:34:11

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

0:34:110:34:13

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

0:34:130:34:16

I'm sorry to say, Jack and KB.

0:34:160:34:18

You came in storming through on the crest of Titus Andronicus.

0:34:180:34:21

I mean, amazing.

0:34:210:34:22

All guns blazing, and I'm afraid the head-to-head round just

0:34:220:34:26

didn't quite suit you. Nothing wrong with your answers,

0:34:260:34:28

but they were just quite high-scoring.

0:34:280:34:30

We will see you again next time, when I'm sure you'll do just as well if not better.

0:34:300:34:34

Meantime, thanks very much for playing, Jack and KB. APPLAUSE

0:34:340:34:37

But for Rachel and Aidan, it's now time for our Pointless Final.

0:34:400:34:43

Congratulations, Rachel and Aidan.

0:34:460:34:47

You have fought off all the competition and you have won

0:34:470:34:51

our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:34:510:34:53

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:34:590:35:01

At the end of today, the jackpot is standing at...

0:35:010:35:05

APPLAUSE

0:35:050:35:07

OK.

0:35:090:35:11

So, last show, you were off, I think the end of the second round,

0:35:110:35:15

we said goodbye to you, wasn't it?

0:35:150:35:17

This show, what a different story.

0:35:170:35:19

Through you have come.

0:35:190:35:21

A fantastic decisive win in the head-to-head there.

0:35:210:35:24

It's been a while since we've had a 2-0 victory there.

0:35:240:35:26

Anything you particularly want to see come up in this last round?

0:35:260:35:29

-Probably music...would be quite good.

-Football.

-Maybe film.

0:35:290:35:34

Football for Aidan, not for me.

0:35:340:35:36

OK, but that's good - you cover lots of bases. It's great.

0:35:360:35:39

Now, very best of luck.

0:35:390:35:40

As always you get to choose the category from the four we put up on the board.

0:35:400:35:43

Let us hope there is something on the board that you like the look of.

0:35:430:35:46

Today's selection reads like this. We have got...

0:35:460:35:49

-Driving Films is jumping out at me.

-Yeah, same.

-I wouldn't...

0:35:560:36:01

Spain will be...

0:36:010:36:02

No. Shall we go driving?

0:36:020:36:05

-What, now?

-LAUGHTER

0:36:050:36:07

-Clear your minds a bit!

-Yes, yes!

-It would be nice, wouldn't it?

0:36:080:36:11

Yes. We'll go Driving Films, please.

0:36:110:36:13

-Driving Films. Richard?

-Very best of luck.

0:36:130:36:16

We're looking for any cast members of the following three films, please.

0:36:160:36:19

Anyone credited in the first Cars film, the Pixar film from 2006.

0:36:190:36:24

Anyone credited in the 1990 film Days Of Thunder,

0:36:240:36:28

or anyone credited in the 1989 film Driving Miss Daisy.

0:36:280:36:31

So anyone credited according to IMDB appearing in Cars,

0:36:310:36:35

Days Of Thunder or Driving Miss Daisy.

0:36:350:36:38

Very best of luck.

0:36:380:36:39

There we are. OK.

0:36:390:36:40

You've got up to one minute to come up with three answers,

0:36:400:36:43

and all you need to win that massive jackpot is for just one of

0:36:430:36:45

those answers to be pointless.

0:36:450:36:47

-Are you ready?

-Mm-hm.

-Yes.

0:36:470:36:49

OK, let's put 60 seconds up on the screen. There they are.

0:36:490:36:52

Your time starts now.

0:36:520:36:53

I'm thinking voice-overs in Cars.

0:36:530:36:55

What random actors

0:36:550:36:56

might have done a voice-over?

0:36:560:36:58

Adam Sandler was in it, wasn't he?

0:36:580:37:00

I think Woody Harrelson was in it.

0:37:000:37:01

-Adam Sandler, Woody Harrelson...

-Think people like, um,

0:37:010:37:04

female comedians in America who might have done it, like...

0:37:040:37:06

Rosie O'Donnell.

0:37:060:37:08

Like, or... That woman Sarah Silverman... Um...

0:37:080:37:12

I'm not good on Cars films.

0:37:120:37:14

Cast of Days Of Thunder,

0:37:140:37:16

-Robert Duval?

-I don't know.

0:37:160:37:17

All I know is Tom Cruise,

0:37:170:37:19

Nicole Kidman...

0:37:190:37:21

-That's about it.

-I think Robert Duvall was in it.

0:37:210:37:24

Driving Miss Daisy was, um...

0:37:240:37:26

No!

0:37:260:37:28

What's his name?!

0:37:280:37:30

-Sidney Poitier.

-No, Sidney Poitier,

0:37:300:37:33

-it was...

-Morgan Freeman.

0:37:330:37:35

-Yep.

-And Jessica... No,

0:37:350:37:37

-who's that old lady?

-Jessica Lange?

0:37:370:37:40

I don't think we know Miss Daisy, I think we should pick Cars.

0:37:400:37:43

Ten seconds left.

0:37:430:37:44

Three actors who did voiceovers.

0:37:440:37:46

Adam Sandler.

0:37:460:37:47

Is he going to be quite obvious?

0:37:470:37:49

-Who did you say?

-Woody Harrelson

0:37:490:37:51

and Sarah Silverman...

0:37:510:37:52

OK, time up, I'm afraid.

0:37:520:37:55

I now need your three answers.

0:37:550:37:57

-We'll say Adam Sandler...

-Adam Sandler.

-Woody Harrelson...

0:37:570:38:01

-Woody Harrelson.

-And I...

0:38:010:38:03

-Or someone like Amy Adams?

-Take a punt.

-Oh, no!

-Go Sarah Silverman.

0:38:030:38:09

-We'll go Sarah Silverman.

-Sarah Silverman. OK, three answers there.

0:38:090:38:13

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

0:38:130:38:16

-Probably Sarah Silverman.

-Sarah Silverman goes last.

0:38:160:38:18

Least likely to be pointless?

0:38:180:38:20

-Adam Sandler.

-Adam Sandler. We'll put him first.

0:38:200:38:22

OK, let's put these up on the board in that order and here they are.

0:38:220:38:26

We've got Adam Sandler, Woody Harrelson and Sarah Silverman.

0:38:260:38:30

Well, very, very best of luck.

0:38:300:38:32

Now, if you are going to win this jackpot - who knows,

0:38:320:38:34

you just might - what will you do with that money?

0:38:340:38:37

8,250 quid.

0:38:370:38:38

Rachel?

0:38:380:38:39

Well, I'm getting married in Las Vegas this year,

0:38:390:38:43

so it would go towards that.

0:38:430:38:45

I'd spend it, I don't know...

0:38:450:38:47

-On the Strip? I don't know.

-You'd find a way of spending it.

0:38:470:38:50

-I'd find a way in Vegas.

-I'm quite certain. Aidan, how about you?

0:38:500:38:53

I'd ask the wife how I'd spend it first.

0:38:530:38:56

LAUGHTER That's good. Very good.

0:38:560:38:59

-Maybe a nice cymbal? HE MIMICS CYMBAL.

-Oh, yeah!

0:38:590:39:03

-Something drum-related.

-There we are. OK, well, best of luck.

0:39:030:39:06

In all three of these instances we are looking for cast members

0:39:060:39:09

from Cars. We've narrowed it down to Cars.

0:39:090:39:12

In the first instance we're looking for Adam Sandler.

0:39:120:39:14

You're pretty sure it's right.

0:39:140:39:15

It just has to be pointless for you to win the jackpot.

0:39:150:39:18

So for £8,250, let's see how many people said Adam Sandler.

0:39:180:39:21

Is it pointless?

0:39:210:39:23

ALL GROAN

0:39:260:39:28

Oh, it's not right, sadly.

0:39:280:39:30

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

0:39:300:39:33

THe next answer was Woody Harrelson. Again, this has to be correct.

0:39:330:39:36

Then it has to be pointless for you to win the jackpot.

0:39:360:39:39

So, for £8,250, let's find out how many people said Woody Harrelson.

0:39:390:39:44

-Oh, no!

-Oh!

0:39:460:39:48

-Who do they HAVE in this film?!

-I don't know!

-OK.

0:39:480:39:53

You only have one more shot at today's jackpot. Let's find out.

0:39:530:39:56

Your third and final answer was Sarah Silverman.

0:39:560:39:58

If you're going to take a punt, what a great punt to take.

0:39:580:40:01

To win the jackpot, Sarah Silverman has to be right,

0:40:010:40:04

then it has to be pointless.

0:40:040:40:06

For £8,250, and many people said Sarah Silverman?

0:40:060:40:09

ALL GROAN

0:40:120:40:14

Oh, I'm sorry!

0:40:140:40:15

APPLAUSE

0:40:150:40:16

I'm sorry.

0:40:190:40:20

Oh, dear.

0:40:220:40:23

Well, listen, a valiant attempt, but unfortunately you didn't

0:40:230:40:27

manage to find that all-important correct answer.

0:40:270:40:30

So I'm afraid you don't win today's jackpot of £8,250.

0:40:300:40:33

That will roll over on to the next show.

0:40:330:40:35

But what a performance across the two shows.

0:40:350:40:37

You've done fantastically well and it's been wonderful having you on the show.

0:40:370:40:41

And you get to take home a Pointless trophy, so there you are.

0:40:410:40:43

APPLAUSE

0:40:430:40:44

Yeah, it's unlucky, but that's the way to play the final round.

0:40:490:40:52

So often people just go for very obvious answers.

0:40:520:40:54

At least you went for a punt, you went for somebody...

0:40:540:40:56

It might have been Sarah Silverman. She wasn't, unfortunately.

0:40:560:40:59

She's in Wreck-It Ralph, she was a voice in that, but not in Cars.

0:40:590:41:02

But it's exactly the right thing to do if you want to get a pointless answer.

0:41:020:41:05

We'll take a look at the pointless answers in all the different categories.

0:41:050:41:08

Some very big names in the Cars category that would have won you £8,250.

0:41:080:41:14

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

0:41:140:41:16

Billy Crystal would have won you the money.

0:41:160:41:19

John Goodman also would have won you the money. Michael Keaton.

0:41:190:41:21

Tim Allen, who is Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story,

0:41:210:41:24

he plays the Buzz Lightyear car in Cars as well.

0:41:240:41:27

He voices that and he would have won you £8,250.

0:41:270:41:30

In fact, everyone apart from Owen Wilson and Tom Hanks

0:41:300:41:33

were the big scorers.

0:41:330:41:34

Paul Newman, Bonnie Hunt and Cheech Marin, everyone else in that

0:41:340:41:37

film, every other voice actor, was a pointless answer.

0:41:370:41:40

So very well done if you said any of those.

0:41:400:41:42

John Ratzenberger, of course,

0:41:420:41:44

Cliff from Cheers, is in all the Pixar films and he would have

0:41:440:41:47

been a pointless answer as well in this particular category.

0:41:470:41:50

Let's take a look at the other two films.

0:41:500:41:52

I'm sure people at home will be having a go at these.

0:41:520:41:55

The cast of Days Of Thunder - Don Simpson, very much

0:41:550:41:58

better-known as a producer, one of the uber producers of Hollywood.

0:41:580:42:00

JC Quinn, John C Reilly,

0:42:000:42:02

one of those guys who's in every film you've ever watched.

0:42:020:42:05

Brilliant actor. Randy Quaid.

0:42:050:42:06

Everyone in that film a pointless answer apart from Tom Cruise,

0:42:060:42:09

unsurprisingly,

0:42:090:42:11

Nicole Kidman, Robert Duvall, Michael Rooker and

0:42:110:42:13

Fred Dalton Thomson. Also Carey Elwes.

0:42:130:42:15

Who we perhaps better know from Princess Bride.

0:42:150:42:17

Wonderful actor.

0:42:170:42:19

And Driving Miss Daisy.

0:42:190:42:21

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

0:42:210:42:23

Esther Rolle, Joann Havrilla,

0:42:230:42:26

Patti Lupone, William Hall Jr.

0:42:260:42:28

Again, only three actors scoring in that.

0:42:280:42:30

Morgan Freeman, who you mentioned.

0:42:300:42:32

Jessica Tandy was the name of woman he's driving.

0:42:320:42:35

And Dan Ackroyd also in that film, would have scored you six points.

0:42:350:42:38

So very well done if you got a pointless answer on any of

0:42:380:42:40

those films, and unlucky in the studio.

0:42:400:42:42

-So the jackpot keeps going up, right?

-Mm!

0:42:420:42:44

Well, unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to you,

0:42:440:42:46

Rachel and Aidan, but it's been fabulous having you on the show.

0:42:460:42:49

-Thank you so much for playing.

-APPLAUSE

0:42:490:42:51

Rachel and Aidan didn't win our jackpot today, which means it

0:42:530:42:56

rolls over on to the next show, and we will be playing for...

0:42:560:42:59

AUDIENCE: Ooooh!

0:42:590:43:01

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:43:010:43:03

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard...

-Goodbye.

0:43:030:43:06

.and it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:060:43:08
