APPLAUSE

0:00:170:00:20

Thank you very much, indeed. Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong and welcome to Pointless,

0:00:220:00:26

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

0:00:260:00:28

and find the obscure ones. Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:31

APPLAUSE

0:00:310:00:34

And couple number one...

0:00:350:00:37

Hello, my name is Jean.

0:00:370:00:38

This is my partner Dave and we live in Beckenham in Kent.

0:00:380:00:41

-Couple number two...

-Hi, I'm Georgia. This is my mum Bev

0:00:410:00:44

and we're from Leeds.

0:00:440:00:45

-Couple number three...

-Hi, I'm Sarah. This is my partner Clare

0:00:450:00:49

and we're from Nottingham.

0:00:490:00:50

And, finally, couple number four...

0:00:500:00:52

Hello, my name is Jenny.

0:00:520:00:54

This is my boyfriend Sandy and we live in Cornwall.

0:00:540:00:56

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:560:00:58

APPLAUSE

0:00:580:01:01

Thanks very much, all of you. We will find out more about each of you throughout the show.

0:01:010:01:04

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

0:01:040:01:07

I certainly wouldn't cross him, although I would circumnavigate him.

0:01:070:01:11

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

-Hiya.

0:01:110:01:14

Hi, everybody. Afternoon.

0:01:140:01:16

APPLAUSE

0:01:160:01:18

I wondered how that sentence was going to finish, for a moment!

0:01:180:01:21

Circumnavigation was the best option I could have hoped for, I think.

0:01:210:01:25

I think it was, yes. On the table, yep.

0:01:250:01:26

-Now, TV secret. It's your birthday today.

-It is.

0:01:260:01:29

-Aww! Thank you.

-That's nice.

0:01:290:01:31

APPLAUSE

0:01:310:01:32

Yeah.

0:01:320:01:33

Obviously, when this goes out, it won't be your birthday,

0:01:330:01:36

but people should tweet you, "Happy Twitter birthday".

0:01:360:01:40

-People should tweet you, "Happy TV birthday".

-Yeah, TV birthday.

0:01:400:01:43

-It's nice.

-You're like the Queen.

-Exactly.

-In more ways than one.

0:01:430:01:47

-There we are. Yeah!

-It's your birthday

0:01:470:01:50

and, very excitingly, on your birthday,

0:01:500:01:52

-we have got quite the jackpot building up.

-Haven't we?

0:01:520:01:54

It hasn't been won for quite some while,

0:01:540:01:56

so a very exciting jackpot. Two returning pairs from the last show.

0:01:560:01:59

We've got, knocked out in Round One,

0:01:590:02:01

we've got Georgia and Bev, on podium two.

0:02:010:02:03

And knocked out in Round Two, on podium one, Dave and Jean.

0:02:030:02:06

Welcome back, all of you. A nice sum of money for our newcomers

0:02:060:02:09

to play for, as well. Your birthday, lovely questions.

0:02:090:02:12

And Bev's top. Look at that.

0:02:120:02:14

-Lovely, bright colour, there.

-That is nice, isn't it?

-Thank you!

0:02:140:02:17

-That has made my year.

-It's nice, isn't it? A lovely celebration top.

0:02:170:02:21

-Yeah.

-In HD, that is going to zing.

-It's going to sing, yeah.

0:02:210:02:24

They're going to love that.

0:02:240:02:26

-People are going to have to redecorate their front rooms while you're on.

-That's fine.

0:02:260:02:30

Wonderful. Thank you very much, indeed.

0:02:300:02:32

Rachel and Aidan didn't win the jackpot last time,

0:02:320:02:34

as you'll have gathered, so we add another £1,000 to that.

0:02:340:02:37

So, today's jackpot starts off at...

0:02:370:02:40

ALL: Ooh!

0:02:400:02:42

APPLAUSE

0:02:420:02:46

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

0:02:460:02:49

Just remember this, the pair with the highest score at the end

0:02:530:02:55

of each round will be eliminated.

0:02:550:02:58

There we are. No conferring, remember, for the first two rounds.

0:02:580:03:01

Our first category for Round One today is...

0:03:010:03:06

English Football. Can you all decide, in your pairs,

0:03:060:03:09

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

0:03:090:03:12

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

0:03:120:03:15

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

0:03:170:03:20

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

0:03:200:03:24

ALEXANDER REPEATS QUESTION

0:03:290:03:31

-Richard.

-We're looking for any team who has played in

0:03:310:03:34

the English Premier League from the '92-93 season,

0:03:340:03:37

all the way through to the 2015-16 season, please,

0:03:370:03:39

whose names begin with letters starting from N-Z.

0:03:390:03:43

What I call the second half of the alphabet.

0:03:430:03:46

-I think you're right to.

-Do you think?

-Yeah.

-I mean nothing by it,

0:03:460:03:48

-it's a perfectly-acceptable half of the alphabet...

-Yeah.

0:03:480:03:51

-..but, chronologically, it is second.

-It is the second half.

-Yeah.

0:03:510:03:54

-There we are. Dave... Welcome back.

-Thank you.

-Now, we discovered

0:03:540:03:58

a great many things about you last time, but the most exciting thing

0:03:580:04:01

is that you fill your retirement by supplying high-end food and drink

0:04:010:04:05

to private jets.

0:04:050:04:06

This is true. This is true.

0:04:060:04:08

-Not me, personally. The company I work for.

-The company... I see.

0:04:080:04:11

So, you're not slaving away over a hot stove?

0:04:110:04:13

-No, I'm not the man.

-Crafting things out of carrots?

0:04:130:04:16

That's what they do in private jets.

0:04:160:04:18

-Yeah.

-That's what they do.

-So, how did you come into that?

0:04:180:04:21

How did that come about?

0:04:210:04:23

Actually, it was a friend of Jean's who told me she had been doing

0:04:230:04:28

a particular job in... Am I allowed to mention which airport?

0:04:280:04:32

-Biggin Hill Airport.

-I think that's all right.

0:04:320:04:34

Other airports are available.

0:04:340:04:36

LAUGHTER

0:04:360:04:38

-There we are.

-And I just wrote to every company in Biggin Hill

0:04:380:04:41

and said, "Do you need anybody to drive anything anywhere?"

0:04:410:04:44

And you've cornered the market.

0:04:440:04:46

-What about that?!

-Do you get to go on the jets, at all?

0:04:460:04:49

-Do you ever get to go inside the jets?

-I go inside all of them.

0:04:490:04:53

-What's the best one you've ever seen?

-And whose was it?!

0:04:530:04:57

It was...actually, an English gentleman.

0:04:580:05:01

-Wow.

-He does a television programme.

0:05:010:05:04

Oh, I bet it's Peter Jones.

0:05:060:05:07

Lord Sugar.

0:05:090:05:10

-Ooh!

-Ooh! Ooh!

0:05:100:05:12

-Ooh!

-Oh, tell me, how does Lord Sugar decorate his...?

0:05:120:05:16

No, no, we can't. We can't.

0:05:160:05:17

Well, Dave, for now,

0:05:180:05:20

we're looking for Premier League football teams

0:05:200:05:22

from the second half of the alphabet.

0:05:220:05:25

Could I please go with Tottenham Hotspur?

0:05:260:05:29

-Yes, you may.

-Thank you.

-Thank you for your politeness there.

0:05:290:05:32

Tottenham Hotspur. Let's see if that's right,

0:05:320:05:34

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

0:05:340:05:36

45.

0:05:440:05:45

APPLAUSE

0:05:450:05:46

45, for Tottenham Hotspur.

0:05:460:05:48

Yeah, they're one of only seven teams who have been present

0:05:480:05:51

in every single Premier League season

0:05:510:05:53

and I can name all the others, because they all start

0:05:530:05:55

-in the first half of the alphabet.

-Oh, that's nice.

0:05:550:05:58

Arsenal, Aston... Oh, I say Aston Villa - by the time this goes out,

0:05:580:06:01

goodness me. Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and Man United.

0:06:010:06:04

Excellent. Thank you, Richard.

0:06:050:06:07

-Bev...

-Hi.

-So, what keeps you busy up in Leeds?

0:06:070:06:10

-Erm...job, granddaughter...

-But you're also,

0:06:100:06:14

as we discovered last time, very keen on crafts.

0:06:140:06:16

-Russian dolls.

-Russian dolls.

-Yeah.

-That's it.

0:06:160:06:19

I have quite a good collection.

0:06:190:06:21

-Yes.

-110.

-110.

-Yeah.

-Does that include all the ones inside or...?

0:06:210:06:26

-No, sets. 110 sets.

-So, 660, maybe, 770 dolls, you've got?

-Yeah.

0:06:260:06:32

-Where do you keep them?

-I had to buy a display cabinet.

0:06:320:06:34

-"I had to buy a second home."

-Yeah!

-Do you have a series of smaller

0:06:340:06:39

display cabinets within the display cabinet?

0:06:390:06:41

LAUGHTER

0:06:410:06:42

-That's how I'd do it.

-Now, Bev, Premier League teams.

0:06:420:06:47

Are we happy about this?

0:06:470:06:49

No, nobody in my house watches football.

0:06:490:06:51

But I'm going to try Nottingham Forest.

0:06:510:06:55

Nottingham Forest, says Bev. Nottingham Forest.

0:06:550:06:57

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

0:06:570:07:00

Nottingham Forest.

0:07:000:07:01

It's right. Well, 45 is what Tottenham Hotspur scored.

0:07:030:07:07

Nottingham Forest...

0:07:070:07:08

Look at that!

0:07:100:07:11

Down to 10.

0:07:120:07:13

Very well done indeed, Bev.

0:07:130:07:15

Yeah, I once called them Notts Forest on this programme

0:07:160:07:19

and got in a lot of trouble, because they're Nottingham Forest.

0:07:190:07:21

So, every time Fulham play them, I now make a point of saying,

0:07:210:07:24

"Very, very difficult to wind up a Notts Forest fan," and...

0:07:240:07:27

-..the replies you get.

-Now, Sarah, welcome to Pointless.

0:07:280:07:32

Lovely to have you here.

0:07:320:07:33

What do you do, Sarah?

0:07:330:07:35

I work at the University of Nottingham, as a disability advisor.

0:07:350:07:38

-Are you advising the student body or do you advise the...?

-Staff.

0:07:380:07:41

-Staff...

-I see.

-..on what students need.

-I see.

0:07:410:07:46

So, getting all the facilities, all the support and all that

0:07:460:07:48

-sort of stuff.

-Absolutely.

-Very good.

0:07:480:07:50

How long have you been doing that?

0:07:500:07:51

-I've been doing that job in Nottingham for six and a half years.

-And you enjoy it?

0:07:510:07:55

Yeah. I enjoy working with the students,

0:07:550:07:57

-just not so much the paperwork.

-Yes. Yeah, I can imagine.

0:07:570:08:01

What do you get up to otherwise, Sarah?

0:08:010:08:03

I love music. I love going to as many gigs as possible.

0:08:030:08:07

Do you have a current favourite band or...?

0:08:070:08:09

Oh, we have lots of bands that we share a like of, but...

0:08:090:08:14

Like U2, Foo Fighters... Imagine Dragons.

0:08:140:08:19

Foo Fighters are coming back. They came back to do another tour,

0:08:190:08:22

because of the broken foot fiasco?

0:08:220:08:24

Yeah, we saw them in Manchester about a week before

0:08:240:08:27

he broke his leg in Sweden. So, we felt very fortunate.

0:08:270:08:29

-Very fortunate.

-Absolutely.

-Very good. Now, Sarah.

-Hello.

0:08:290:08:33

-What are you going to go for?

-I'm going to say Reading.

0:08:330:08:37

Reading, says Sarah.

0:08:370:08:38

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

0:08:380:08:42

45 is our highest score, at this point, and we pass it.

0:08:460:08:49

Ten is our low.

0:08:500:08:51

Nearly down there. We're at 14.

0:08:510:08:53

-14 for Reading. Very well done, Sarah.

-Thank you.

0:08:530:08:56

Well played, Sarah. Last in the Premier League in 2012-2013.

0:08:570:09:00

Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Sandy. Welcome to the show.

0:09:000:09:05

-Now, you said you are from Newquay.

-Yes, originally from Glasgow,

0:09:050:09:09

but I live in Newquay now.

0:09:090:09:11

-You've answered my question.

-It's a giveaway.

0:09:110:09:13

You could see where I was going with that and you leapt in.

0:09:130:09:16

What do you do down in Newquay?

0:09:160:09:17

-I'm a beach lifeguard for the RLNI.

-Oh, good for you.

0:09:170:09:20

-How long have you done that for?

-It's fantastic.

0:09:200:09:22

I've done four seasons. Going to be a fifth, starting soon.

0:09:220:09:25

-Right, so you say a beach lifeguard?

-Yes. We are the beach lifeguards.

0:09:250:09:30

Look after all the people coming to use the beach

0:09:300:09:33

-and people on holiday and things.

-Right.

-Keeping it safe for them.

0:09:330:09:36

And are you a surfer, at all?

0:09:360:09:38

-Yes. Yes. Very keen surfer.

-Right, so I'm guessing that is what

0:09:380:09:41

-took you to Cornwall, was it?

-It is, indeed.

-Oh, fantastic.

0:09:410:09:44

And it helps for lifeguarding, as well. If you know the ocean,

0:09:440:09:47

-it's, kind of, important.

-Yeah. Beautiful down there.

-Stunning.

0:09:470:09:50

Sandy, football. English Premier League teams.

0:09:500:09:52

I've heard some good answers, so far, that I've thought of.

0:09:520:09:55

I'm going to go for a team who's fallen on hard times

0:09:550:09:58

-and that's Portsmouth.

-Portsmouth, says Sandy.

0:09:580:10:01

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

0:10:010:10:04

said Portsmouth.

0:10:040:10:05

It's right.

0:10:070:10:09

45 is still the high point - and we pass it.

0:10:090:10:11

10 is our low.

0:10:110:10:13

26 is where you end up.

0:10:130:10:14

26, for Portsmouth.

0:10:140:10:17

Yeah, relegated in 2009-2010.

0:10:170:10:20

Fallen on very hard times since then.

0:10:200:10:22

Hopefully, on their way back.

0:10:220:10:23

Good name for a beach lifeguard - "Sandy".

0:10:230:10:25

Isn't it?!

0:10:250:10:27

LAUGHTER

0:10:270:10:28

Thank you very much. We are halfway through the round.

0:10:280:10:31

Let's take a look at those scores. 10. What about that, Bev?

0:10:310:10:33

The best score of the pass.

0:10:330:10:36

So, Bev and George are looking very strong.

0:10:360:10:37

Then, up to 14, where we find Sarah and Clare.

0:10:370:10:40

Up to 26, Sandy and Jenny on the far podium.

0:10:400:10:43

Then up to 45, Dave and Jean. Jean, it's in your hands,

0:10:430:10:47

I would say. We need a nice, low score from you on the next pass.

0:10:470:10:50

-How are we feeling about that?

-Very badly.

-Well, Bev wasn't feeling

0:10:500:10:54

-brilliant about it...

-That's true, yeah.

-..and look what she managed

0:10:540:10:57

-to achieve.

-That's true.

-So, there we are.

0:10:570:10:59

Let's hope, when it comes back to you, you've got a nice,

0:10:590:11:01

low-scoring answer that will keep you in the game.

0:11:010:11:03

We'll come back down the line. Can the second players step up to the podium?

0:11:030:11:07

Jenny, welcome to Pointless.

0:11:090:11:11

-Now, where are you from originally?

-I'm from Aberdeen.

-From Aberdeen?

0:11:110:11:15

So, how did you and Sandy find each other?

0:11:150:11:16

Did you find each other in Scotland or Cornwall?

0:11:160:11:18

-We've been together about six months and we met in Cornwall.

-Very nice.

0:11:180:11:22

Where did you meet? Was Sandy rescuing you?

0:11:220:11:26

No, he wasn't. We met at a music gig that was on,

0:11:260:11:29

down in the beach, in Newquay.

0:11:290:11:31

-And, Jenny, what do you do?

-I work on wildlife watching boat trips,

0:11:310:11:34

-from Padstow in Cornwall.

-Oh, that's just lovely!

0:11:340:11:37

You could make a soap opera about your lives. It would be fantastic.

0:11:370:11:39

-And, what are your interests?

-Wildlife, marine wildlife.

0:11:390:11:45

I like swimming. I go swimming quite a lot.

0:11:450:11:47

I volunteer with the British Divers Marine Life Rescue.

0:11:470:11:52

I'm a marine mammal medic. We go out saving stranded marine life,

0:11:520:11:56

-mostly seals.

-Fantastic.

0:11:560:11:58

Two people who have made their lives,

0:11:580:12:01

built their lives, around things they love. How fantastic. Jenny,

0:12:010:12:03

what would you like to go for? You're on 26. Our highest scorers

0:12:030:12:06

are here on the first podium, Jean and Dave, on 45.

0:12:060:12:09

So, 18 is your target.

0:12:090:12:11

-A couple of my answers have been stolen.

-Mm.

0:12:110:12:14

I think I'm going to go with Southampton.

0:12:140:12:16

Southampton, says Jenny.

0:12:160:12:19

Southampton. Here is your red line.

0:12:190:12:21

If you can get below that,

0:12:210:12:22

you are through to the next round.

0:12:220:12:24

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

0:12:240:12:26

34 for Southampton.

0:12:340:12:35

Takes your total up to 60.

0:12:370:12:39

Another good answer. Were there at the beginning,

0:12:390:12:41

had seven years out, but now back to stay, I think.

0:12:410:12:44

-Thanks very much, Richard. Clare.

-Hello.

0:12:440:12:48

A warm welcome to Pointless, Clare, and what do you do?

0:12:480:12:51

-I'm a student.

-What do you study?

0:12:510:12:53

I'm studying social work, at the moment.

0:12:530:12:56

I'm going to be going to university in September.

0:12:560:12:58

-Whereabouts?

-Nottingham.

-Oh, that's nice. Convenient, isn't it?

0:12:580:13:01

-That is convenient, yeah.

-So, what are your interests, Clare?

0:13:010:13:05

Well, I like cycling the tandem with Sarah.

0:13:050:13:09

What's the furthest you've been on the tandem?

0:13:090:13:11

60 miles myself, but we've done, together, 170, across the country.

0:13:110:13:15

-That's a lot.

-Yeah.

-Yeah. Very good.

0:13:150:13:17

-What else do you get up to?

-I've got a VW camper,

0:13:170:13:20

-that I'm having done up.

-Have you painted it lurid colours?

0:13:200:13:24

-It's orange and white.

-That'll do, yeah. Good enough.

0:13:240:13:27

So, festivals and everything, when the summer comes?

0:13:270:13:30

Yeah, Isle of Wight Festival is going to be our first one together.

0:13:300:13:33

-Wonderful.

-Yeah.

-Have you pimped it out inside?

0:13:330:13:36

It's getting there. It's getting there. Bright orange interior.

0:13:360:13:39

Very good. OK, now, Clare, there you are on 14.

0:13:390:13:43

If you can score 45 or less, you are into Round Two.

0:13:430:13:46

OK, I'm going to go for Norwich. Norwich City.

0:13:460:13:49

There we are, Norwich City. Here is your red line.

0:13:490:13:51

If you get below that red line with Norwich,

0:13:510:13:54

you are through to the next round.

0:13:540:13:55

How many of our 100 people said Norwich City?

0:13:550:13:57

Well done. You're through. 32. Not bad, at all.

0:14:030:14:06

Takes your total up to 46.

0:14:060:14:08

Well played, Clare. Another member of the inaugural season

0:14:100:14:13

in the Premier League. Actually, they were leading it for most

0:14:130:14:16

of that season. Finished third in the end. Their best-ever finish.

0:14:160:14:19

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:14:190:14:20

Now, Georgia. Lovely low score from Bev in the first pass there.

0:14:200:14:23

You should be feeling quite comfortable, I hope, at this stage.

0:14:230:14:26

-Yes.

-Remind us what you do, Georgia.

0:14:260:14:29

-I'm a support worker.

-That's right. What do you like getting up to

0:14:290:14:32

-in your spare time?

-I spend time with my daughter, but I like crafts,

0:14:320:14:35

so I do a lot of that with her. I used to do it before I had her,

0:14:350:14:38

but now, I do it with her, so she helps me

0:14:380:14:40

and we put all the pictures up around the house.

0:14:400:14:43

All her artwork's everywhere.

0:14:430:14:45

Lovely. Yeah, that's the thing with children. You get a lot of art,

0:14:450:14:48

don't you? The hard thing is working out what you do with it.

0:14:480:14:50

-Yeah.

-You know, cos they're all precious, aren't they?

0:14:500:14:53

I mean, but you get reams of the things.

0:14:530:14:56

-There's only so much wall space, at the end of the day.

-Yeah.

0:14:560:14:58

Now, Georgia. There you are on 10. Our high scorers

0:14:580:15:01

on the far podium, Jenny and Sandy, there, with 60.

0:15:010:15:04

If you can score 49 or less, you are through.

0:15:040:15:07

OK. I'm going to go with Preston.

0:15:070:15:10

Preston. There's your red line, Georgia.

0:15:100:15:13

If you can get below that red line with Preston,

0:15:130:15:15

you're through to the next round.

0:15:150:15:17

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

0:15:170:15:19

Oh!

0:15:220:15:24

Oh, Georgia.

0:15:250:15:26

GEORGIA SIGHS

0:15:260:15:27

Oh, Georgia. Mind you, the round is not over yet.

0:15:270:15:31

That scores 100 points, takes your total up to 110.

0:15:310:15:33

Sorry, Georgia. One of the great names in English football,

0:15:330:15:36

Preston North End, but never played in the Premier League, I'm afraid.

0:15:360:15:39

-It's their fault more than yours.

-Yeah, that's what I say! Definitely.

0:15:390:15:44

-Thanks, Richard. Jean...

-Hello.

-Hello. Now, welcome back, Jean.

0:15:440:15:48

-Thank you.

-Yes, quite a tense moment in the Pointless gameplay,

0:15:480:15:53

to have our little chat here. Remind us what you get up to, Jean,

0:15:530:15:57

down in Kent?

0:15:570:15:58

Well, I'm very interested in the arts and theatre.

0:15:580:16:01

I like cooking. I like travel.

0:16:010:16:03

I don't know anything very much about football.

0:16:030:16:08

-You don't follow football? You don't...?

-Not really, no.

0:16:080:16:12

-No.

-Only the big boys, I know.

-Yeah, OK. Let's see what you come up with.

0:16:120:16:17

What we need is a score of 64 or less.

0:16:170:16:19

Well, I don't even know if this team is in the Premier League.

0:16:190:16:23

-But I'm going to go with West Ham.

-West Ham, says Jean. West Ham.

0:16:230:16:27

Here is your red line. If you can get below that, with West Ham,

0:16:270:16:31

you are safely into the next round. Let's see how many of our 100 people said West Ham.

0:16:310:16:35

There we are. It's right.

0:16:380:16:39

And through you go. Very well done, indeed.

0:16:390:16:41

36.

0:16:420:16:43

81 is your total.

0:16:450:16:46

Very well played, Jean.

0:16:480:16:50

That's a relief, isn't it? Made their Premier League debut

0:16:500:16:52

in the '93-94 season. Now, there are no pointless answers at all here.

0:16:520:16:56

There's not that many answers, actually, on the board.

0:16:560:16:59

The best answer of all, Swindon Town.

0:16:590:17:01

2 points, if you said Swindon. Very well played.

0:17:010:17:03

3 points for Sheffield United and 4 for Sheffield Wednesday.

0:17:030:17:06

They won't like that at Sheffield United.

0:17:060:17:08

Other low scorers, Wimbledon - 7, Wigan Athletic - 8,

0:17:080:17:11

Watford - 8, Oldham Athletic - 8, Stoke - 11, Wolves - 19,

0:17:110:17:14

Swansea - 22, West Brom - 30, Sunderland - 32.

0:17:140:17:19

QPR would have scored you 41 and, right at the top, on 48,

0:17:190:17:22

-Newcastle United.

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

0:17:220:17:26

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

0:17:260:17:29

with a high score of 110, I'm so sorry,

0:17:290:17:31

our low scorers halfway through the round, it was all looking fantastic.

0:17:310:17:34

Bev and Georgia.

0:17:340:17:35

I mean, a great shame to be saying goodbye to you.

0:17:350:17:39

Bringing so much colour to the array of contestants, as well.

0:17:390:17:42

We'll miss you for lots of reasons, but thank you so much for playing.

0:17:420:17:45

Georgia and Bev - wonderful contestants.

0:17:450:17:47

APPLAUSE

0:17:470:17:50

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

0:17:500:17:53

APPLAUSE

0:17:530:17:57

Suddenly, we are down to three pairs. All getting very exciting.

0:17:590:18:03

Best of luck to all three pairs. Our category for Round Two today...

0:18:030:18:06

It's Pop Music. Can you decide, in your pairs,

0:18:090:18:11

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

0:18:110:18:14

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

0:18:140:18:17

OK, and the question concerns...

0:18:200:18:23

-Richard.

-On each board, we're going to name you some pairs of albums.

0:18:280:18:31

You just need to tell us the name of the artist who had UK top 40 hits

0:18:310:18:34

with those pairs of albums, please. Six on each board. 12 in all,

0:18:340:18:38

-to have a go at, at home. Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much.

0:18:380:18:40

So, we're looking for the artists who've released these albums.

0:18:400:18:43

And our first board of pairs of albums reads like this...

0:18:430:18:48

I'll read those all one last time.

0:19:040:19:06

HE REPEATS ALBUM TITLES

0:19:060:19:08

-Oh, Dave, you're shaking your head.

-Oh, yeah. Nightmare scenario.

0:19:190:19:24

It's going to be an absolute shot in the dark.

0:19:240:19:28

The last one.

0:19:280:19:29

-Madonna.

-Madonna, says Dave.

0:19:290:19:34

Let's find out if that's right.

0:19:340:19:36

True Blue/Like A Virgin - Madonna.

0:19:360:19:38

How many of our 100 people said it, if it IS right?

0:19:380:19:41

Look at that.

0:19:430:19:44

Oi! Oh, sorry.

0:19:440:19:45

Slightly short-lived. Glory, but just...

0:19:450:19:50

Yeah, 14 points of it. 86 is what

0:19:500:19:53

you scored there. That's a lot better than 100.

0:19:530:19:56

Better than 100, yes. Not a complete shot in the dark?

0:19:560:19:58

There must have been a bit of you that knew.

0:19:580:20:02

Yes, the bestselling female recording artist of all time.

0:20:020:20:05

-Thank you very much, Richard.

-Pleasure.

-Thank you. Clare?

0:20:050:20:08

-Hm.

-I know two.

-Mmm.

0:20:080:20:12

And I'm... Hm... I'm going to go for the one that I really know,

0:20:120:20:16

-and that's Parklife/ The Great Escape is Blur.

-Blur.

0:20:160:20:20

Parklife/The Great Escape, Blur, says Clare.

0:20:200:20:23

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

0:20:230:20:26

It is right. Well, you passed 86.

0:20:270:20:29

-51 for Blur.

-Nicely played, Clare.

0:20:340:20:36

Yeah, their third and fourth albums, both number ones.

0:20:360:20:39

Thanks, Richard. Now, Jenny...

0:20:390:20:42

-Yes.

-Jenny, this is your board.

0:20:420:20:44

-It's all yours now.

-All mine!

-You can have as much fun with it

0:20:440:20:47

as you like. Go through all of those ones...

0:20:470:20:49

-Erm...

-..if you want.

0:20:490:20:51

Songs For Swingin' Lovers/ A Swingin' Affair!

0:20:510:20:53

I could take a guess at it, but I would have no clue, really.

0:20:530:20:57

Private Dancer, I feel like I know somewhere in the back of my brain,

0:20:570:21:01

but it's not coming to me. Come On Over/The Woman In Me,

0:21:010:21:05

I have a feeling, Christina Aguilera.

0:21:050:21:07

She did a song called Come On Over. But I'm going to go for the top one,

0:21:070:21:11

-which I think is Razorlight.

-OK.

0:21:110:21:15

You are going to go for Razorlight. Up All Night and Take Me Home.

0:21:150:21:18

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

0:21:180:21:21

said Razorlight.

0:21:210:21:23

Don't be wrong, don't be wrong.

0:21:240:21:25

-Oh, no!

-Oh, no! Jenny, I'm so sorry.

0:21:250:21:27

I'm so sorry.

0:21:290:21:30

I mean, that's quite good news for Dave and Jean, over here.

0:21:300:21:33

But still, I am very sorry. It is good news for you,

0:21:330:21:35

because they are not very far behind you. But that scores 100 points.

0:21:350:21:38

Yes, sorry, Jenny. The look of relief on Dave's face was lovely,

0:21:380:21:42

though. Up All Night and Take Me Home,

0:21:420:21:45

it's very much the thinking man's Razorlight. It's One Direction.

0:21:450:21:48

You look relieved that you didn't get it now.

0:21:500:21:53

It would have scored you five points, as well.

0:21:530:21:55

The best answer on the board. Dave, you weren't tempted with

0:21:550:21:58

-Songs For Swingin' Lovers and A Swingin' Affair?

-Frank Sinatra?

0:21:580:22:01

-Of course it is. It would have scored you 11 points.

-Oh!

0:22:010:22:03

It would have been a terrific answer.

0:22:030:22:05

Come On Over/The Woman In Me - not Christina Aguilera.

0:22:050:22:08

It is Shania Twain.

0:22:080:22:10

-It would have scored 12.

-Ah, yes.

0:22:100:22:12

-And Private Dancer/Foreign Affair...

-Tina Turner.

-Tina Turner.

0:22:120:22:15

And that would have scored you 54.

0:22:150:22:18

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

0:22:180:22:20

We are halfway through the round. Let's take a look at those scores.

0:22:200:22:23

51, Clare, the best score of the pass.

0:22:230:22:26

Clare and Sarah, I would say, at this point,

0:22:260:22:28

looking like strong contenders for the head-to-head. And then, ooh,

0:22:280:22:30

there's a bit of a tussle at the top end of the field, I'd say.

0:22:300:22:34

Dave and Jean on 86, Jenny and Sandy on 100.

0:22:340:22:36

Well, let's hope there's something you can each have a good go at.

0:22:360:22:39

Best of luck to both. We are going to come back down the line now.

0:22:390:22:42

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:22:420:22:45

OK, we are going to put six more pairs of albums up on the board.

0:22:480:22:50

And here they are.

0:22:500:22:52

We have got...

0:22:540:22:55

I'll read those all one last time.

0:23:080:23:11

HE REPEATS ALBUM TITLES

0:23:110:23:12

So, Sandy...

0:23:250:23:26

Sandy, there you are on 100.

0:23:260:23:29

We need a low score here.

0:23:290:23:30

-We need a low score.

-How are we feeling about this board?

0:23:300:23:33

Yeah... I don't think it's going to be good.

0:23:340:23:37

I'll go for the top one, Rumours/Tango In The Night,

0:23:370:23:40

-and say Fleetwood Mac.

-Fleetwood Mac, says Sandy.

0:23:400:23:42

Fleetwood Mac for Rumours/Tango In The Night.

0:23:420:23:44

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

0:23:440:23:46

No red line for you, I'm afraid, as you are the highest scorers.

0:23:460:23:49

Well, it's right.

0:23:510:23:53

Ooh!

0:23:530:23:55

44.

0:23:550:23:56

-144 is your total.

-Given yourself a chance there, Sandy.

0:23:590:24:03

Also both UK number ones.

0:24:030:24:05

Thank you, Richard.

0:24:050:24:06

Now then, Sarah.

0:24:060:24:08

92 or less gets you through, so that takes the pressure off.

0:24:080:24:12

I'm going to go for the last one and say The Rolling Stones.

0:24:120:24:17

The Rolling Stones for Aftermath/Beggars Banquet.

0:24:170:24:19

Let's see if that is right.

0:24:190:24:21

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

0:24:210:24:23

There is your red line. Lovely and high up,

0:24:230:24:25

right at the top of the column there.

0:24:250:24:27

It's right, and you are through.

0:24:290:24:31

Wow.

0:24:340:24:35

Down it goes. 17. Very, very well done indeed.

0:24:350:24:38

Best score of the pass so far, in fact, Sarah,

0:24:390:24:42

-taking your total up to 68.

-Safe and sound.

0:24:420:24:45

Yes, they've had 37 UK top-ten albums, the Stones.

0:24:450:24:47

All those platinum discs they'll have...

0:24:470:24:50

That's why pop stars have such big houses.

0:24:500:24:52

-Of course.

-So they've got room to put their platinum discs.

0:24:520:24:55

-Yeah.

-It's annoying for them.

-It must be quite annoying.

0:24:550:24:58

They have to buy those mansions out in the country so they've got room.

0:24:580:25:00

-Oh!

-It's rude to not put your platinum discs up.

-Very rude.

0:25:000:25:03

My mum, cos my brother is in a band,

0:25:030:25:04

my mum's got platinum and gold discs in her flat.

0:25:040:25:07

And whenever people come round to fix the telly, she literally...

0:25:070:25:10

-Aww!

-They get a half-hour lecture.

-Very nice.

0:25:100:25:12

-She's got loads of them.

-Brilliant.

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:25:120:25:14

Jean? Jean, now, Jean, because you have to score 57 or less.

0:25:140:25:19

Unfortunately, the first board was much better for me,

0:25:190:25:23

and I only know one and I suspect it is very high.

0:25:230:25:26

And that is 21/25, Adele.

0:25:260:25:28

21/25, Adele, says Jean.

0:25:280:25:31

Now, here is your red line.

0:25:310:25:33

Yep, I mean, you know, it's more than halfway up the column.

0:25:330:25:37

-But we are talking about Adele here.

-We are, we are.

-Yeah.

0:25:370:25:41

OK, now let's find out how many of our 100 people said Adele.

0:25:410:25:44

You've done it! 52.

0:25:510:25:53

You needed 57.

0:25:530:25:55

You got 52!

0:25:550:25:56

What about that? 138 is your total.

0:25:560:25:59

You are through to the next round. Very well done indeed.

0:25:590:26:02

Very well played. 21 and 25,

0:26:020:26:04

two of the biggest-selling albums of the century, 21 and 25.

0:26:040:26:08

But the names, I think maybe don't stick in everyone's head,

0:26:080:26:10

so it is not a bad answer to go for. Let's take a look at the rest.

0:26:100:26:13

-Oops!... I Did It Again/Blackout is...

-Britney Spears.

0:26:130:26:16

Britney Spears, yes. That would have scored you 51.

0:26:160:26:19

Now, this is a tougher one -

0:26:190:26:20

Born to Do It/Slicker Than Your Average is...

0:26:200:26:23

-Craig David.

-Yes. It is Craig David. It would have scored you 7.

0:26:230:26:26

And Fantastic and Make It Big...

0:26:260:26:29

That's Wham!

0:26:290:26:30

It is Wham!

0:26:300:26:32

-Yeah.

-Yeah, it is. Best answer on the board, as well.

0:26:320:26:34

-6 points for Wham!

-Fabulous, thank you very much indeed.

0:26:340:26:37

So, at the end of our second round,

0:26:370:26:38

the pair who are heading home with their high score of 144,

0:26:380:26:41

it's Sandy and Jenny, I'm afraid.

0:26:410:26:43

Ooh, that was close, though. Ooh, that was close!

0:26:430:26:45

Jean pulled it out of the bag at the last minute.

0:26:450:26:48

But we'll see you again next time

0:26:480:26:49

and I'm sure you'll do even better then.

0:26:490:26:51

But in the meantime, thanks very much for playing, Sandy and Jenny.

0:26:510:26:54

But for Clare and Sarah, Dave and Jean,

0:26:580:27:00

it is now time for our head-to-head.

0:27:000:27:02

Well, congratulations. Clare and Sarah, Dave and Jean,

0:27:060:27:09

you are now one step closer to the final

0:27:090:27:11

and a chance to play for our jackpot,

0:27:110:27:13

which is currently standing... at £9,250.

0:27:130:27:17

This, in my opinion, is where the game really starts,

0:27:210:27:24

because you start playing as teams here.

0:27:240:27:26

You can confer before you give your answers.

0:27:260:27:28

Very exciting indeed. The first team

0:27:280:27:29

to win two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:27:290:27:32

So it is very exciting because we have this massive jackpot.

0:27:320:27:34

It is also very exciting for that last-minute...

0:27:340:27:37

Oh, you just made it over the line there, Jean!

0:27:370:27:40

Very, very well done indeed.

0:27:400:27:42

And, well, Clare and Sarah,

0:27:420:27:44

we've had consistent low scoring from you all the way through.

0:27:440:27:47

So, it is, as I say, very exciting.

0:27:470:27:49

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

0:27:490:27:51

And our first question today is all about Breakfast. Breakfast, Richard.

0:27:580:28:02

Yeah, simply five clues now to facts about Breakfast.

0:28:020:28:05

Can you give us the most obscure answer?

0:28:050:28:07

OK, let's reveal our five Breakfast facts.

0:28:070:28:10

And here they come...

0:28:100:28:12

The band who released the hit 1979 album Breakfast In America.

0:28:120:28:17

Writer and director of the 1985 film The Breakfast Club.

0:28:170:28:21

Former Labour leader famously pictured eating a bacon sandwich

0:28:210:28:24

in May 2014.

0:28:240:28:26

The French word for breakfast.

0:28:260:28:29

The author who wrote the 1973 novel Breakfast Of Champions.

0:28:290:28:34

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

0:28:340:28:36

The band who released the hit 1979 album Breakfast In America.

0:28:360:28:39

The writer and director of the 1985 film The Breakfast Club.

0:28:390:28:42

The former Labour leader

0:28:420:28:43

famously pictured eating a bacon sandwich in May 2014.

0:28:430:28:46

The French word for breakfast.

0:28:460:28:48

And the author who wrote the 1973 novel Breakfast Of Champions.

0:28:480:28:52

There we are. So, Clare and Sarah, you've been our low scorers,

0:28:520:28:55

so we come to you first.

0:28:550:28:57

-Go for what I think...

-Let's go for the easy one.

0:28:570:28:59

Well, what do you think is the easy one? I'm...

0:28:590:29:03

I'm not sure about this.

0:29:030:29:05

But I'm going to say Breakfast In America for the band Boston.

0:29:050:29:08

Boston, say Clare and Sarah.

0:29:080:29:10

Boston. Now, Dave and Jean, we come to you.

0:29:100:29:14

-The board is all yours.

-Well, I think there's only two that we know.

0:29:140:29:18

Mr Miliband, of course, with the bacon sandwich.

0:29:200:29:23

But I think we will go for the French word for breakfast,

0:29:230:29:27

which is petit dejeuner.

0:29:270:29:28

Petit dejeuner.

0:29:280:29:29

OK, petit dejeuner, say Dave and Jean.

0:29:290:29:33

So, we have Boston and we have petit dejeuner.

0:29:330:29:35

Clare and Sarah said Boston had the album Breakfast In America.

0:29:350:29:38

Let's see if they are right.

0:29:380:29:39

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

0:29:390:29:42

Ooh!

0:29:430:29:45

Oh, it's not Boston.

0:29:460:29:47

It is not Boston. We will find out who it was in a moment.

0:29:470:29:50

Dave and Jean, meanwhile, have gone for petit dejeuner,

0:29:500:29:52

which merely has to be correct for you to win this point.

0:29:520:29:55

Let's see if it is.

0:29:550:29:56

It is right.

0:29:580:30:00

Ooh, down it goes.

0:30:010:30:03

Look at that. 45 for petit dejeuner.

0:30:030:30:04

A surprisingly low score. And it means, Dave and Jean,

0:30:070:30:09

-that, after one question, you are up 1-0.

-Yeah, very well played.

0:30:090:30:13

Not Boston. Not a million miles away, in terms of the sort of band.

0:30:130:30:16

It is Supertramp.

0:30:160:30:18

Supertramp would have scored you 24 points.

0:30:180:30:21

Do you know who wrote and directed The Breakfast Club?

0:30:210:30:24

-No.

-Wrote a lot of those movies in the '80s.

0:30:240:30:26

-John Hughes.

-Right.

0:30:260:30:27

John Hughes would have scored you 12.

0:30:270:30:29

The Labour leader, you're absolutely right, is Ed Miliband.

0:30:290:30:32

He would have scored you - he is the biggest scorer up there - 53.

0:30:320:30:35

And the best answer, the author of Breakfast Of Champions...

0:30:350:30:38

Kurt Vonnegut.

0:30:380:30:40

Kurt Vonnegut. And that would have scored you 8 points.

0:30:400:30:43

-Well done if you said that at home.

-Er, Richard...

-Yes?

0:30:430:30:45

The French, I think they are

0:30:450:30:47

approaching breakfast in the wrong way.

0:30:470:30:49

-I mean, it's not a little lunch.

-I don't think it is.

0:30:490:30:52

-I love breakfast.

-Love breakfast.

0:30:520:30:55

Oh! I get excited about breakfast.

0:30:550:30:57

Oh! More than I do about any other meal.

0:30:570:30:59

One of my favourite things in the world is a hotel breakfast.

0:30:590:31:02

-You know when you go down and you can have anything?

-Oh!

0:31:020:31:05

That is me all over!

0:31:050:31:07

Then you get a big bowl and think, "Today, I'm going to be healthy.

0:31:070:31:10

"So, ooh, honey, masses of crunchy oats

0:31:100:31:14

"and seeds of one shape and size..."

0:31:140:31:16

Then you finish that and go, "I'm just going to have some sausages."

0:31:160:31:20

Mm. No, cos I've had the healthy stuff.

0:31:200:31:22

-Yeah, so now I can have...

-I can now have...

0:31:220:31:24

..sausages, bacon, hash browns.

0:31:240:31:26

-Yeah, yeah, yeah. Always.

-And then a pain au chocolat, lovely.

0:31:260:31:29

Ah! And then breakfast proper.

0:31:290:31:32

Yeah, then proper breakfast.

0:31:320:31:33

-Yeah.

-And then you never need eat again.

-Never need...

0:31:330:31:36

Yeah, that's what you think. Oh, I love a hotel breakfast.

0:31:360:31:38

-Until half past 12. Mm!

-Mm.

0:31:380:31:40

Anyway, there we are.

0:31:400:31:42

OK, here comes your second question. Clare and Sarah,

0:31:420:31:44

you have to win this one to stay in the game after Boston, I'm afraid.

0:31:440:31:47

Bostongate. Dave and Jean get to answer it first, though.

0:31:470:31:50

Best of luck to both pairs.

0:31:500:31:52

It concerns...

0:31:520:31:53

..Mozart Operas.

0:31:550:31:57

-Mozart operas, Richard.

-It's gone down well with our audience.

0:31:570:32:00

Yeah.

0:32:000:32:01

We are going to give you the titles now of five Mozart operas,

0:32:010:32:04

but we've missed out the last word of each.

0:32:040:32:07

Can you fill in that last word, please?

0:32:070:32:08

There we are.

0:32:080:32:10

OK, let's reveal our five Mozart operas.

0:32:100:32:12

And here they are, with missing last words.

0:32:120:32:14

The Marriage Of...

0:32:140:32:16

Don...

0:32:160:32:18

The Clemency Of...

0:32:180:32:20

The Shepherd...

0:32:200:32:22

And The Magic...

0:32:220:32:23

The Marriage Of...

0:32:240:32:26

Don... The Clemency Of...

0:32:260:32:27

The Shepherd... The Magic...

0:32:270:32:30

Dave and Jean, you will go first.

0:32:310:32:33

THEY CONFER

0:32:360:32:39

I think we are going to go for the second one...

0:32:390:32:42

-Don Giovanni.

-Don Giovanni, beautifully pronounced there.

0:32:420:32:46

Don Giovanni, say Dave and Jean.

0:32:460:32:48

Clare and Sarah?

0:32:480:32:50

Nah.

0:32:500:32:52

I know the last one. I think it's The Magic Flute.

0:32:520:32:54

The one we are going to go for is the top one,

0:32:540:32:58

because I don't know the rest, and that's The Marriage Of Figaro.

0:32:580:33:00

The Marriage Of Figaro.

0:33:000:33:02

So, we have Don Giovanni and we have The Marriage Of Figaro.

0:33:020:33:04

Dave and Jean went for Don Giovanni.

0:33:040:33:06

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

0:33:060:33:08

It's right.

0:33:100:33:12

41.

0:33:150:33:17

41. Now then, Clare and Sarah have gone for The Marriage Of Figaro.

0:33:210:33:26

Let's see if that's right.

0:33:260:33:27

Let's see how many people said it.

0:33:270:33:29

It is right. Ooh, look at that!

0:33:310:33:33

81! A popular answer there.

0:33:330:33:35

Which means...

0:33:370:33:38

What about that? You scraped into the head-to-head,

0:33:380:33:40

but here you are storming on through to the final, Dave and Jean.

0:33:400:33:44

2-0 after only two questions. Very well done indeed.

0:33:440:33:47

Very well played, Dave and Jean. I sense Jean does quite a lot of

0:33:470:33:50

heavy lifting in the relationship, Dave. Would that be...?

0:33:500:33:52

She does all of it.

0:33:520:33:54

Beautiful. Beautiful. It works perfectly then, doesn't it?

0:33:540:33:56

Clare and Sarah, The Magic Flute was right as well,

0:33:560:33:59

but it also wouldn't have won you the points, a fairly big scorer.

0:33:590:34:02

It would have scored you 70 points.

0:34:020:34:04

It is The Shepherd King.

0:34:040:34:06

And that would have scored you 6 points.

0:34:060:34:10

And the best answer on the board...

0:34:100:34:12

The Clemency Of Titus.

0:34:120:34:13

It would have scored you 4. Imagine having tickets to that.

0:34:130:34:16

Agh! Imagine someone coming home and saying, "Good news.

0:34:160:34:19

"I have tickets to a show in town."

0:34:190:34:21

-"Got the Mozart tickets!"

-"We are going to see The Clemency Of Titus."

0:34:210:34:24

"Can we at least stay in a hotel?"

0:34:250:34:27

"Have everything included?"

0:34:290:34:30

Yeah.

0:34:300:34:32

Thanks very much indeed.

0:34:320:34:34

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

0:34:340:34:36

I'm afraid, Clare and Sarah, 'tis you.

0:34:360:34:38

-Oh.

-Good news for us, though.

0:34:380:34:39

It means we get to see you again next time.

0:34:390:34:41

So, we look forward to that very much indeed.

0:34:410:34:43

Thanks very much for playing. Sarah and Clare! Wonderful contestants.

0:34:430:34:46

But for Dave and Jean it is now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:490:34:52

Well, congratulations, Dave and Jean.

0:34:560:34:59

You have seen off all the competition

0:34:590:35:01

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:010:35:04

-That's all we wanted.

-Oh!

0:35:090:35:11

-No, we want the money as well.

-Steady, steady now.

0:35:110:35:14

Cos I was just about to say, you now have a chance to win

0:35:140:35:17

our Pointless jackpot, but I may not bother now.

0:35:170:35:19

But just in case you had an interest in that,

0:35:190:35:22

I can remind you that it stands at £9,250. There it is!

0:35:220:35:25

Now, it looked like you were doomed to be leaving at Round Two,

0:35:300:35:34

cos it was Round Two last time.

0:35:340:35:35

And in Round Two this time, Dave said he had absolutely no idea.

0:35:350:35:38

You remember the album round?

0:35:380:35:40

A bit of a shot in the dark, you said.

0:35:400:35:42

And here you are.

0:35:420:35:43

-Ridiculous.

-Absolutely ridiculous.

0:35:430:35:45

And we could be on the cusp of a big jackpot win here, so, yeah,

0:35:450:35:49

keep your wits about you.

0:35:490:35:50

Best of luck.

0:35:500:35:51

Now, as always, you get to choose the category

0:35:510:35:54

you are going to answer for this last round.

0:35:540:35:55

And we have four choices for you.

0:35:550:35:57

Today's selection of four reads like this...

0:35:570:36:00

Soaps is out.

0:36:060:36:08

-Absolutely.

-Absolutely out.

0:36:080:36:09

-Well, do you want to try Singers Called Billy?

-Well, we'll have to.

0:36:090:36:12

-We'll have to try... Yeah?

-Singers Called Billy.

0:36:120:36:15

Singers Called Billy.

0:36:150:36:17

-OK. Richard?

-We are looking for any UK top 40 single,

0:36:170:36:20

according to officialcharts.com, up to January 2016, please.

0:36:200:36:24

Any of these three.

0:36:240:36:25

Any single by these three.

0:36:250:36:27

Any Billy Fury top 40 single.

0:36:270:36:29

Any Billy Joel top 40 single.

0:36:290:36:32

Any Billy Ocean UK top 40 single.

0:36:320:36:35

So, top 40 singles by Billy Fury, Billy Joel or Billy Ocean.

0:36:350:36:38

Very, very best of luck.

0:36:380:36:40

Thanks very much, Richard. So, as always,

0:36:400:36:42

you've got up to one minute to come up with three answers.

0:36:420:36:45

And all you need to win that jackpot

0:36:450:36:47

is for just one of your answers to be pointless.

0:36:470:36:49

Are you ready?

0:36:490:36:50

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:36:500:36:52

OK, let's put 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:36:520:36:53

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:36:530:36:55

OK, let's start with Fury.

0:36:550:36:57

-Halfway To Paradise?

-Halfway To Paradise, yeah.

0:36:570:37:00

And what was that very slow song that he had way back?

0:37:000:37:04

Er... Had a number one with it, didn't he?

0:37:040:37:07

-Very slow.

-Oh, I can't remember.

0:37:070:37:09

We might come back.

0:37:090:37:11

-Billy Joel?

-Uptown Girl.

0:37:110:37:12

Uptown Girl probably won't be pointless, though.

0:37:120:37:15

No, no.

0:37:150:37:16

-Billy Ocean?

-Hopeless.

-Hopeless?

0:37:160:37:18

Is that the name of the song, or...?

0:37:180:37:21

Billy Joel. There must be...

0:37:210:37:23

I used to love Billy Joel.

0:37:230:37:24

Yeah. Er... Uptown Girl will probably...

0:37:240:37:28

..not be pointless.

0:37:300:37:31

Westlife did one of his songs. What was it?

0:37:330:37:36

Billy Fury, I...

0:37:380:37:39

What was the first one you mentioned for Fury?

0:37:410:37:43

Halfway To Paradise.

0:37:430:37:45

-Halfway To Paradise.

-Ten seconds left.

0:37:450:37:47

Billy Joel... We will have to say Uptown Girl.

0:37:470:37:49

-Can't think of anything else?

-I can't off the top of my head.

0:37:490:37:52

-I know that Westlife did one.

-Well, can we think of anything...

0:37:520:37:55

-Oh.

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

0:37:550:37:58

So I now need your three answers.

0:37:580:38:00

Well, we've only actually got two,

0:38:000:38:02

so we'll have to make something up.

0:38:020:38:03

Billy Joel, Uptown Girl.

0:38:030:38:06

Uptown Girl.

0:38:060:38:07

-Billy Fury, Halfway To Paradise.

-Halfway To Paradise.

0:38:070:38:10

And I'm going to say Billy Fury, Get Back.

0:38:100:38:13

But I'm sure that's not right.

0:38:130:38:15

Get Back for Billy Fury.

0:38:150:38:17

-I don't think so, but...

-OK, now, of those three,

0:38:170:38:19

which is your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:38:190:38:21

-Halfway To Paradise.

-Halfway To Paradise.

0:38:210:38:23

We will pop that last. Least likely to be pointless?

0:38:230:38:25

-Get Back.

-Get Back. Also by Billy Fury.

0:38:250:38:28

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

0:38:280:38:31

And here they are. We have got Get Back,

0:38:310:38:34

we've got Uptown Girl and we have got Halfway To Paradise.

0:38:340:38:37

Well, very, very good luck.

0:38:370:38:40

Fantastically exciting jackpot up for grabs there.

0:38:400:38:44

Now, if you were to win that jackpot with one of those answers,

0:38:440:38:46

what would you do with it? Dave, to you first.

0:38:460:38:49

Well, there are two fairly important anniversaries coming up.

0:38:490:38:53

One of our own, and a large birthday.

0:38:530:38:56

So, I think I would have to swell the fund

0:38:560:39:00

which would undoubtedly be spent during those two events.

0:39:000:39:04

Very exciting.

0:39:040:39:06

Jean, anything in particular you'd like that fund to be spent on?

0:39:060:39:09

I'm very fond of Italy,

0:39:090:39:10

so I would like to do a sort of extended tour of Italy.

0:39:100:39:13

But with all these grandchildren,

0:39:130:39:15

I'm sure they'd be raising their little hands.

0:39:150:39:18

OK. OK, well, somewhere between the grandchildren and Italy.

0:39:180:39:21

-Yeah.

-Yes, good. Well, it would be a fantastic win, wouldn't it?

0:39:210:39:25

Now, your first answer was Get Back.

0:39:250:39:27

In this case, we are looking for Billy Fury UK top 40 singles.

0:39:270:39:30

Only one of these has to be pointless

0:39:300:39:31

for you to win that jackpot, remember.

0:39:310:39:33

Let's find out if Get Back is right. Let's find out if it is pointless.

0:39:330:39:37

If it's both of those things, it will win you £9,250.

0:39:370:39:40

How many people said Get Back?

0:39:400:39:42

Yep, I knew that.

0:39:440:39:46

Well, that was...

0:39:460:39:48

Yeah, that was just a placeholder there, wasn't it?

0:39:480:39:50

So, obviously, not a pointless answer,

0:39:500:39:53

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

0:39:530:39:55

Your next answer was Uptown Girl.

0:39:550:39:57

In this case, we were looking for Billy Joel UK top 40 singles.

0:39:570:40:00

If this is pointless, it will win you £9,250.

0:40:000:40:04

How many people said Uptown Girl?

0:40:040:40:06

Well, it's right.

0:40:090:40:11

Your first answer, Get Back, was incorrect,

0:40:110:40:14

but this one is on the money.

0:40:140:40:15

Uptown Girl, 51.

0:40:150:40:17

I thought it would be higher than that!

0:40:210:40:23

OK, everything is now riding on your third and final answer.

0:40:230:40:26

Everything. That 9,250 jackpot could be yours,

0:40:260:40:30

if Halfway To Paradise is right and is pointless.

0:40:300:40:33

In this case, we were looking for Billy Fury UK top 40 singles.

0:40:330:40:37

How many of our 100 people said Halfway To Paradise?

0:40:370:40:40

For £9,250, is it pointless?

0:40:400:40:42

It is right.

0:40:450:40:46

Your first answer, Get Back, was incorrect.

0:40:460:40:49

Uptown Girl took us to 51, which we just passed.

0:40:490:40:52

Halfway To Paradise, now taking us down through the teens

0:40:520:40:55

and into single figures. Down it goes, still going.

0:40:550:40:57

Oh! 6.

0:40:570:40:59

Well, two good answers there.

0:41:020:41:04

And, Jean, you said you used to know a lot of the Billy Fury singles.

0:41:040:41:09

-I did.

-So, I'm sure you're going to have a slightly uncomfortable

0:41:090:41:12

couple of minutes ahead of you here. But you did so well.

0:41:120:41:15

Sadly, you didn't manage to find that all-important pointless answer

0:41:150:41:18

in this round, you won't be winning today's jackpot of £9,250.

0:41:180:41:20

That rolls over on to the next show.

0:41:200:41:23

But what a performance across the show.

0:41:230:41:25

A fantastic 2-0 in the head-to-head as well.

0:41:250:41:27

It has been lovely having you on the show. Thank you so much.

0:41:270:41:30

-You get a Pointless trophy to take home as well.

-Thank you very much.

0:41:300:41:33

SPEECH DROWNED BY APPLAUSE

0:41:370:41:39

Yeah, it's been a pleasure getting to know you both.

0:41:390:41:42

Thank you so much for entertaining us. Get Back...

0:41:420:41:44

Maybe in your head it was the Beatles,

0:41:440:41:46

but Billy Preston also played the piano,

0:41:460:41:48

so perhaps that's the Billy that stuck in your head.

0:41:480:41:50

Lots of pointless answers for Billy Fury.

0:41:500:41:52

Most of the pointless answers are Billy Fury.

0:41:520:41:54

Let's take a look at a few of them. Top ten singles, these first four.

0:41:540:41:57

-I'd Never Find Another You.

-Oh, yeah! There they all are.

-Jealousy.

0:41:570:42:01

-Yeah.

-Erm, sorry. Last Night Was Made For Love.

0:42:010:42:04

When Will You Say I Love You? All sorts of other answers there.

0:42:040:42:07

Because Of Love, Colette. Do You Really Love Me Too?

0:42:070:42:09

Don't Worry. Give Me Your Word.

0:42:090:42:11

I Will. I'll Never Quite Get Over You.

0:42:110:42:13

Lots and lots of pointless answers there for Billy Fury.

0:42:130:42:15

Let's take a look at Billy Joel.

0:42:150:42:17

There's five pointless answers for Billy Joel.

0:42:170:42:19

All About Soul, All Shook Up.

0:42:190:42:20

It's Still Rock And Roll To Me was pointless.

0:42:200:42:22

Some people at home would have said that. Leave A Tender Moment Alone,

0:42:220:42:25

and All For Leyna.

0:42:250:42:27

Those were the pointless answers there for Billy Joel. Billy Ocean...

0:42:270:42:30

The wonderfully named Get Outta My Dreams,

0:42:300:42:33

Get Into My Car was a pointless answer.

0:42:330:42:34

I know some people would have said that. Love On Delivery.

0:42:340:42:37

Stop Me (If You've Heard It All Before).

0:42:370:42:38

and There'll Be Sad Songs (To Make You Cry). Also Calypso Crazy.

0:42:380:42:42

All of those were pointless answers. You've been terrific for two shows.

0:42:420:42:45

I'm sorry. All those Billy Fury songs

0:42:450:42:47

will be going round your head for weeks now. I apologise for that.

0:42:470:42:51

Thanks, Richard. Well, Dave and Jean didn't win our jackpot today,

0:42:510:42:54

which means it rolls over on to the next show,

0:42:540:42:56

when we will be playing for £10,250.

0:42:560:42:59

APPLAUSE

0:42:590:43:02

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:43:020:43:04

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

-Goodbye.

0:43:040:43:06

And it's goodbye from me... Goodbye.

0:43:060:43:09
