APPLAUSE

0:00:120:00:15

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:200:00:22

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

0:00:220:00:24

the show that makes big winners out of the lowest scorers.

0:00:240:00:27

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:270:00:29

And couple number one.

0:00:330:00:34

Hi, I'm Steve and this is my son Chris, and we're from Dover in Kent.

0:00:340:00:38

-Couple number two.

-Hi, my name is Ray. This is my partner Lup.

0:00:380:00:41

We're from south London.

0:00:410:00:42

Couple number three.

0:00:420:00:43

Hello, my name's Natalie and I'm from Hitchin in Hertfordshire,

0:00:430:00:46

and this is my sister Deborah, from Surrey.

0:00:460:00:49

-And finally, couple number four.

-Hello, I'm Ruth.

0:00:490:00:52

This is Frank, my friend,

0:00:520:00:53

and we live in a little village near Bridgwater.

0:00:530:00:56

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:560:00:59

Thanks very much to all of you.

0:01:000:01:02

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

0:01:020:01:04

as it goes along.

0:01:040:01:05

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

0:01:050:01:08

We could only afford an intellectual minnow,

0:01:080:01:10

but we've hooked a great white shark.

0:01:100:01:12

We're going to need a bigger float. It's my Pointless friend, Richard.

0:01:120:01:15

Hiya! Hey, everybody!

0:01:150:01:17

-Good afternoon to you.

-And to you.

0:01:180:01:21

Now, the small matter of that last show.

0:01:210:01:22

We've got three returning pairs from that show.

0:01:220:01:25

Simon and Leila the only people from that show who are not here

0:01:250:01:27

and that's cos they took home that £8,500, didn't they?

0:01:270:01:31

It's one of those very serendipitous moments.

0:01:310:01:33

It does happen sometimes and it couldn't happen to a nicer couple.

0:01:330:01:36

They were absolutely over the moon

0:01:360:01:37

and a terrific performance as well, and, yeah, £8,500,

0:01:370:01:41

but you know what, mo' money, mo' problems, as we say.

0:01:410:01:44

-Very nice to have a very small jackpot.

-Isn't it nice?

-Yes.

0:01:440:01:47

-So much more refreshing, isn't it?

-It's a suit jacket or something.

0:01:470:01:52

It looks gaudy with £8,500 stuffed into it, whereas with a grand,

0:01:520:01:55

you can just about get away with it.

0:01:550:01:57

So I think this is a show for the better-dressed contestant.

0:01:570:02:00

-I think that's more useful, isn't it?

-Well said.

0:02:000:02:02

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:02:020:02:04

Yes, Leila and Simon won the jackpot so today's jackpot starts off at...

0:02:040:02:09

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

0:02:090:02:12

Now, remember this - the pair with the highest score

0:02:170:02:19

at the end of each round will be eliminated.

0:02:190:02:23

No conferring till we get to our head-to-head round.

0:02:230:02:25

Best of luck to all four pairs. Our first category today...

0:02:250:02:28

Africa.

0:02:300:02:32

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

0:02:320:02:34

who's going to go second?

0:02:340:02:36

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

0:02:360:02:38

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

0:02:410:02:43

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

0:02:430:02:48

..as they could.

0:02:530:02:55

Any African country ending in a vowel. Richard.

0:02:550:02:59

Yeah, we're specifically looking for any member of the African Union,

0:02:590:03:02

any country that's a member of the African Union

0:03:020:03:04

whose name ends A, E, I, O or U, please.

0:03:040:03:06

As always, by country,

0:03:060:03:07

we mean the sovereign state that's a member of the UN in its own right.

0:03:070:03:10

Thanks very much indeed. Now, Chris, welcome back.

0:03:100:03:13

-Well, we didn't see much of you last time.

-No.

0:03:130:03:16

-It was a Round One departure.

-Yes.

0:03:160:03:17

But we discovered you've been working

0:03:170:03:19

on the cross-channel ferries.

0:03:190:03:20

-We did, yeah.

-We discovered that.

0:03:200:03:22

-Quite keen to go to work for the police.

-Yeah, that's the plan.

0:03:220:03:25

That's the plan. What are your hobbies, Chris?

0:03:250:03:28

I play football. I like watching football as well.

0:03:280:03:31

Big Liverpool fan, as you can tell from the southern accent.

0:03:310:03:33

LAUGHTER

0:03:330:03:35

OK, and how are we feeling about African geography?

0:03:350:03:38

-Erm, not too bad. Better than the last show, so...

-OK.

0:03:380:03:43

OK, always tough having to go first in these rounds.

0:03:430:03:46

What would you like to go for?

0:03:460:03:48

-I think I'm going to go for Cape Verde.

-Cape Verde.

0:03:480:03:53

OK, let's see if that's right.

0:03:530:03:54

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

0:03:540:03:58

It's right.

0:04:000:04:02

I think this might be rather good.

0:04:040:04:06

Let's have a look.

0:04:060:04:07

Oh, and it is! CHEERING

0:04:070:04:08

It happens to be a pointless answer, Chris.

0:04:080:04:10

Very well done indeed.

0:04:100:04:11

That adds £250 to today's jackpot, taking the total up to...

0:04:110:04:15

It scores you nothing and gets you off to a rollicking start.

0:04:170:04:19

-What about that?

-Yeah, that is great stuff.

0:04:190:04:22

Very well played, terrific answer and also if everybody does that,

0:04:220:04:25

we'll soon get back up to £8,500.

0:04:250:04:28

It'll be absolutely fine.

0:04:280:04:29

Yeah, Cabo Verde it's now called.

0:04:290:04:31

We're in a period now where we still accept Cape Verde. We won't always.

0:04:310:04:36

-I suppose we won't.

-No, because it's officially changed its name.

-Yeah.

0:04:360:04:41

There's other countries which are trying to change their name.

0:04:410:04:43

I wish they wouldn't, cos it makes the admin so much more complicated.

0:04:430:04:46

I know. There we are. LAUGHTER

0:04:460:04:49

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

0:04:490:04:51

I'm a business manager for the English health care regulators.

0:04:510:04:54

That's right. And what do you like doing

0:04:540:04:56

-when you're not doing that, Ray?

-I am...

0:04:560:04:58

I've dropped it for a little bit,

0:04:580:05:00

but I'm trying to pick up my 10K assault courses.

0:05:000:05:02

-I like to do those.

-10K assault courses?

-Yes.

0:05:020:05:05

But, Ray, what kind of assault courses are they over 10Ks?

0:05:050:05:09

Well, the last one was cracking the ice in lakes to swim through them,

0:05:090:05:13

-climbing up waterfalls, jumping over horse jumps.

-Over 10km, though?

-Yes.

0:05:130:05:18

But this is madness, Ray.

0:05:180:05:21

Tell me, what's the hardest obstacle you have to climb over or...?

0:05:210:05:26

I think it was at a racecourse.

0:05:260:05:28

-We literally had to jump over the horse jumps.

-What, all of them?

-Yep.

0:05:280:05:32

-Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it(?)

-It does!

0:05:320:05:35

I can see why you're itching to get back to it, Ray.

0:05:350:05:37

But before you do that, let's have an answer from you.

0:05:370:05:40

Bit of a risk, but why not? And I hope I have the right title.

0:05:400:05:44

I have a friend from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

0:05:440:05:47

The Democratic Republic of Congo.

0:05:470:05:49

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

0:05:490:05:52

It's right.

0:05:540:05:56

Look at that, 6. Very well done, Ray.

0:06:010:06:04

Lovely low-scoring start to the round.

0:06:040:06:06

Yeah, good work from everybody.

0:06:060:06:09

Well done, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Ends in an O.

0:06:090:06:12

So it does! Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:06:120:06:15

Deb, welcome to Pointless. Great to have you here. What do you do, Deb?

0:06:150:06:20

We've got a family business - dental equipment. The chairs, X-rays...

0:06:200:06:25

Oh, that's the fun dental equipment! X-ray machine...

0:06:250:06:29

-Yeah, they go and fix them if they break.

-But the chair...

0:06:290:06:33

Oh, what fun!

0:06:330:06:34

You sell that all over the country, all over the world?

0:06:340:06:38

-The UK.

-The UK, I see. Very good indeed.

0:06:380:06:41

Now, what are your hobbies, Deb?

0:06:410:06:43

Well, I only do the 5K assault course.

0:06:430:06:46

Have you been around a racecourse?

0:06:460:06:49

-No, I potter around in my garden.

-Oh, that's nice.

0:06:490:06:54

Yeah, nothing like...

0:06:540:06:55

There we are. Deb, what would you like to go for?

0:06:570:06:59

-Erm, I'm going to try Leso...tho.

-"Lesotho," says Deb.

0:06:590:07:05

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

0:07:050:07:08

Lesotho.

0:07:080:07:09

It's right. These are all excellent answers.

0:07:120:07:14

6 is our highest score, 0 is our low. 10 for Lesotho.

0:07:160:07:19

10 for Lesotho. Time was when Lesotho was way down at the bottom.

0:07:220:07:26

We have done a lot of good work for Lesotho and some of the other...

0:07:260:07:29

One answer that we can mention cos it's not in this round,

0:07:290:07:32

Central African Republic. Can you imagine?

0:07:320:07:33

They'll be right up there these days.

0:07:330:07:36

If this was African Union countries ending in C,

0:07:360:07:38

it'd be through the roof.

0:07:380:07:40

We'd have to build a new column.

0:07:400:07:42

LAUGHTER

0:07:420:07:43

-Ruth, welcome back.

-Thank you.

0:07:430:07:46

Remind us what you like getting up to, Ruth.

0:07:460:07:48

Well, I sing in my church choir,

0:07:480:07:51

but I also do a lot of boot sale-ing for my charity.

0:07:510:07:55

Selling stuff or going round and...?

0:07:550:07:57

-I do stuff in a big way.

-Wow! Tell me what kind of stuff.

-Anything.

0:07:570:08:02

If you fancy a wet suit or... I've got everything in my house.

0:08:020:08:07

Wow! How many boot sales' worth?

0:08:070:08:10

I used to be able to do two or three a week,

0:08:100:08:14

but I'm a bit older now

0:08:140:08:16

so I only usually get to do two at the most in a week.

0:08:160:08:20

And very satisfying to raise money for your charity as well.

0:08:200:08:23

-Oh, yeah.

-Good for you, Ruth. Now, what would you like to go for?

0:08:230:08:27

-I am going to go with Mali.

-"Mali," says Ruth.

0:08:270:08:31

Let's see how many of our 100 people went with Mali.

0:08:310:08:35

It's right. Nothing is our low score, 10 is our high.

0:08:370:08:41

Look at that, 14 for Mali.

0:08:420:08:45

That's a great answer, Ruth.

0:08:490:08:50

Mali in West Africa ends with an I, of course.

0:08:500:08:53

Thank you very much.

0:08:530:08:54

We're halfway through the round, let's take a look at those scores.

0:08:540:08:57

Going up in increments of four from Podium Two on,

0:08:570:08:59

but we start off at nothing.

0:08:590:09:01

Very well done indeed, Chris and Steve.

0:09:010:09:03

What a strong start to the show.

0:09:030:09:05

6 is where we find Ray and Lup, 10 is where we find Deb and Natalie

0:09:050:09:09

and 14 is where we find Ruth and Frank.

0:09:090:09:11

Now, Frank, as a career soldier,

0:09:110:09:13

I am hoping you will have some fantastic answers here.

0:09:130:09:16

But we're going to come back down the line now.

0:09:160:09:18

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:09:180:09:20

So, Frank, as I say, African countries ending in a vowel.

0:09:230:09:26

We discovered last time that you are a retired soldier, Frank.

0:09:260:09:29

Tell us about the other things you like getting up to.

0:09:290:09:32

I do a lot of writing, I do a lot of am dram, I've got an allotment.

0:09:320:09:37

Chairman of the village hall, you know, just a good village man.

0:09:370:09:41

-An all-round good egg, Frank.

-Yes.

0:09:410:09:43

Sounds to me like you're more from the comic end of writing.

0:09:430:09:46

Is that right? Is that fair to say?

0:09:460:09:47

Yep, I write anything that makes people smile.

0:09:470:09:50

And what have you got on at the moment? What are you working on?

0:09:500:09:53

We're just getting together another village panto.

0:09:530:09:55

It takes a long time, as you can imagine.

0:09:550:09:58

Do you work on a sort of general model

0:09:580:10:00

or do you fill it with lots of local gags?

0:10:000:10:03

I have a look round the village and see.

0:10:030:10:05

I'm a bit like the girl in The Archers, you know.

0:10:050:10:08

I skate round the village saying, "How are you fixed for the panto?"

0:10:080:10:12

People see me coming, they cross the street.

0:10:120:10:15

So, it depends who I can get!

0:10:150:10:17

I see. Now, Frank, there you are on 14. You're the high-scorers.

0:10:170:10:21

Not by any margin, but you are the high-scorers

0:10:210:10:24

so we need a particularly low and obscure answer from you.

0:10:240:10:27

I'm torn, really.

0:10:270:10:28

I was stationed in one of these places. I'm going to say Ethiopia.

0:10:280:10:34

"Ethiopia," says Frank.

0:10:340:10:36

No red line for you cos you're the high-scorers at the moment,

0:10:360:10:39

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

0:10:390:10:41

25.

0:10:490:10:51

39 is your total.

0:10:510:10:54

Yes, the most populated landlocked country in the world, Ethiopia.

0:10:550:10:58

Hmm!

0:10:580:11:00

So, essentially, Ethiopia's got the most people in its population

0:11:000:11:03

who are not in the navy of any country in the world.

0:11:030:11:05

LAUGHTER

0:11:050:11:06

Yeah, thank you very much, Richard. Natalie, welcome to Pointless.

0:11:060:11:10

-Thank you.

-What do you do, Natalie?

-I work for a letting agency.

0:11:100:11:14

-Do you show people round properties?

-Yes.

0:11:140:11:16

-Is it commercial or residential?

-No, residential.

0:11:160:11:20

-And where do you do that?

-In Stevenage in Hertfordshire.

0:11:200:11:23

It also means you know that locale incredibly well, doesn't it,

0:11:230:11:27

and you must know all the people -

0:11:270:11:29

who lives there, how long they've been there.

0:11:290:11:31

-Yes.

-That's fun, though, isn't it?

0:11:310:11:33

-Yes, no day's the same.

-Yeah, I bet! Now, you're on 10, Natalie.

0:11:330:11:39

The high-scorers are behind you,

0:11:390:11:40

Ruth and Frank on 39,

0:11:400:11:42

so 28 or less keeps you in the game.

0:11:420:11:45

Erm, I've got a couple.

0:11:450:11:49

One is a bit risky

0:11:490:11:50

so I think I'll go with Namibia.

0:11:500:11:53

"Namibia," says Natalie. Well, here is your red line.

0:11:530:11:55

Below that, you're into Round Two.

0:11:550:11:57

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

0:11:570:12:00

It's right.

0:12:020:12:03

Very well done. Through you go, just.

0:12:070:12:10

22 is what you score,

0:12:100:12:11

32 is your total.

0:12:110:12:13

Well done, Natalie. You did exactly what you needed to do there,

0:12:130:12:15

safely through to the next round. Well played.

0:12:150:12:18

Now, Lup - it's another great shirt from Lup.

0:12:180:12:21

Either that or your scrambled egg

0:12:210:12:24

didn't quite make the journey this morning.

0:12:240:12:27

Lup, remind us what you do, Lup.

0:12:270:12:30

I'm an IT project manager.

0:12:300:12:31

That's right, and tell us about your interests.

0:12:310:12:34

I'm into photography,

0:12:340:12:36

in particular macrophotography.

0:12:360:12:38

Now, tell us what that is.

0:12:380:12:40

That's sort of real close-ups of insects and flowers and things.

0:12:400:12:43

For which you need super-duper long lenses?

0:12:430:12:46

There is a cheap way of doing it

0:12:460:12:48

where you reverse the lens,

0:12:480:12:49

so you can get an adaptor ring,

0:12:490:12:51

and it reverses the lens on the camera

0:12:510:12:53

so you can get in real close to your subject.

0:12:530:12:55

That's amazing!

0:12:550:12:56

How fantastic!

0:12:560:12:58

So, what's the smallest scale thing you've ever done?

0:12:580:13:00

Well, you can see the fangs on spiders

0:13:000:13:03

and the hairs on the backs of their bodies.

0:13:030:13:06

Have you ever scared yourself?

0:13:060:13:08

No, I like spiders.

0:13:080:13:10

I remember the very first time

0:13:100:13:11

looking through a stereomicroscope at a fruit fly

0:13:110:13:15

and just being so scared.

0:13:150:13:18

It was just too much!

0:13:180:13:21

Anyway, Lup, you're on 6.

0:13:210:13:22

Lovely low score from Ray in the first part.

0:13:220:13:24

-39 is the highest score, which means 32 or less gets you through.

-OK.

0:13:240:13:29

I'm going to play it relatively safe

0:13:290:13:31

and go with Eritrea.

0:13:310:13:34

"Eritrea," says Lup.

0:13:340:13:36

Here is your red line. Let's see if you can get below that with Eritrea.

0:13:360:13:40

How many of our 100 people said it?

0:13:400:13:41

Very well done.

0:13:470:13:49

You have done it, 13 is your score there,

0:13:490:13:51

taking your total up to 19.

0:13:510:13:53

Lovely low total. Through you go.

0:13:530:13:55

Great answer, Lup, safely through to the next round.

0:13:550:13:58

Thank you very much indeed, Richard. Steve, welcome back.

0:13:580:14:02

-Remind us what you do, Steve.

-I'm a music retailer.

-A music retailer.

0:14:020:14:05

So you have an online music... Does that mean you can work from home?

0:14:050:14:09

No, we do pay for an office.

0:14:090:14:11

We work from a lovely converted Kent barn

0:14:110:14:13

just on the outskirts of Dover - myself and my wife

0:14:130:14:16

and my other son - who are running the office today - work with me.

0:14:160:14:21

-And your interests are musical as well.

-Very much so, yeah.

0:14:210:14:24

-Tell us about those again.

-I have three choirs that I conduct.

0:14:240:14:27

One is the local choral society,

0:14:270:14:29

one is the church choir and another one is a chamber choir

0:14:290:14:32

of about 20-22 voices, which I started myself back in 2003.

0:14:320:14:36

Very nice indeed. Now, Steve, Chris has set you up immaculately.

0:14:360:14:40

He has put the pressure on.

0:14:400:14:41

It'd be quite nice to bookend this round with another pointless answer

0:14:410:14:45

is what I'm thinking, Steve.

0:14:450:14:46

Well, I don't want to let him down so I'll do my best.

0:14:460:14:49

I'm going to try Burundi.

0:14:490:14:52

Well, 38 is your target, 38 or less keeps you in the game.

0:14:520:14:56

Burundi - there's your red line. How many of our 100 people said it?

0:14:560:15:00

Very well done,

0:15:060:15:07

you're through to Round Two.

0:15:070:15:09

The second-lowest score of the round.

0:15:120:15:14

There we are, 4 on Podium One, fantastic low total.

0:15:140:15:16

Well played, Steve.

0:15:160:15:18

There were some other pointless answers out there,

0:15:180:15:20

four pointless answers in all.

0:15:200:15:21

We've already had Cape Verde or Cabo Verde.

0:15:210:15:23

You also could have had Guinea-Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe

0:15:230:15:26

and Equatorial Guinea.

0:15:260:15:28

All of those were pointless answers.

0:15:280:15:30

One point for Djibouti and three points for Togo, Cote d'Ivoire,

0:15:300:15:34

Guinea and Mauritania. They were the best answers out there.

0:15:340:15:37

Let's take a look at the top three answers,

0:15:370:15:39

the ones that most of our 100 people said.

0:15:390:15:41

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

0:15:480:15:50

the pair that we have to say goodbye to, I'm so sorry,

0:15:500:15:53

with their high score of 39, Ruth and Frank, I'm afraid it is you.

0:15:530:15:57

I'm so sorry. Nothing wrong with either of your answers,

0:15:570:16:00

they were just quite high-scoring,

0:16:000:16:02

so I'm afraid we have to say goodbye,

0:16:020:16:04

but it's been wonderful having you here, Ruth and Frank.

0:16:040:16:06

-APPLAUSE

-Well done.

0:16:060:16:08

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

0:16:100:16:13

And so three pairs remain.

0:16:180:16:20

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

0:16:200:16:22

but very well done, everyone.

0:16:220:16:24

Lovely low-scoring in that round, particular praise to Chris, though.

0:16:240:16:29

Very good, lovely pointless answer there,

0:16:290:16:31

swelling up our jackpot a little bit there, which is great.

0:16:310:16:34

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

0:16:340:16:38

Cinematic Poetry.

0:16:400:16:41

Can you all decide in your pairs

0:16:410:16:43

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

0:16:430:16:45

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

0:16:450:16:47

OK, and the question concerns...

0:16:510:16:53

Films In Haiku, Richard.

0:16:570:16:58

Yeah, on each board, we're going to give you six descriptions

0:16:580:17:00

of films all written as haikus.

0:17:000:17:02

Japanese poems of five syllables, seven syllables, five syllables.

0:17:020:17:06

It's something we like to do.

0:17:060:17:07

Six on the first board, six on the second -

0:17:070:17:09

just guess the film, please.

0:17:090:17:10

12 in all to have a go at at home - the very best of luck.

0:17:100:17:13

OK, so which are the films described by these haikus?

0:17:130:17:16

And here's our first board of six.

0:17:160:17:17

I'm going to read these beautiful poems out again.

0:17:510:17:53

There we are. Chris.

0:18:210:18:23

Yes. It's not bad.

0:18:230:18:28

There's a few that I probably know,

0:18:280:18:29

but actually none that I definitely know.

0:18:290:18:31

I think the bottom one is Boyhood.

0:18:310:18:35

"Boyhood," says Chris.

0:18:350:18:38

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

0:18:380:18:41

It is Boyhood.

0:18:430:18:44

Very good indeed.

0:18:460:18:48

Look at that, 17. That's a great score. Well done, Chris.

0:18:490:18:52

Good work, Chris. Chris is having a good show, isn't he?

0:18:550:18:57

Yeah, very nicely done. It's a beautiful film, have you seen it?

0:18:570:19:00

He literally films it over 12 years

0:19:000:19:02

so all of the cast grow older as it goes on.

0:19:020:19:04

-It's really, really good.

-We've got it, I haven't seen it.

0:19:040:19:07

Thank you very much indeed.

0:19:070:19:09

Ray, what would you like to go for?

0:19:090:19:12

The only one I knew, so I'm going to have to take a bit of a guess.

0:19:120:19:16

I think I saw it a while ago.

0:19:160:19:18

The room of jurors, Henry Fonda - 12 Angry Men.

0:19:180:19:22

!"12 Angry Men," says Ray.

0:19:220:19:23

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

0:19:230:19:26

It is 12 Angry Men, let's see where you end up. 17 for Boyhood.

0:19:280:19:33

Well played. Yeah, I went to see that in the cinema very recently.

0:19:380:19:40

They were re-showing it. Absolutely sensational.

0:19:400:19:43

The script of that, it's wonderful.

0:19:430:19:46

One of the best scripts ever written.

0:19:460:19:48

Thank you very much, Richard. Now, Deb, this board's all yours.

0:19:480:19:52

Would you like to go through our haikus?

0:19:520:19:54

Well, that was going to be my one. I agree, it's a great film, isn't it?

0:19:540:19:57

I think the first one's Groundhog Day.

0:19:570:20:01

I don't know what the dude wants.

0:20:010:20:03

The Jeff Goldblum is the Fly, and Singing In The Rain.

0:20:030:20:08

I'll say Singing In The Rain.

0:20:080:20:12

"Singing In The Rain," says Deb.

0:20:120:20:13

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

0:20:130:20:16

It's right.

0:20:190:20:20

Yeah, you picked the perfect one of the ones you knew there.

0:20:290:20:31

That was the lowest scorer of the answers you gave so well done.

0:20:310:20:34

Very well done if you said that at home.

0:20:520:20:54

Thank you very much indeed.

0:20:540:20:55

OK, we're halfway through the round

0:20:550:20:57

so let's take a look at those scores. 17, Chris, very well done.

0:20:570:21:00

Steve and Chris looking very strong for the next round.

0:21:000:21:02

Then we go up in increments of nine - up to 26,

0:21:020:21:04

where we find Ray and Lup, then up to 35

0:21:040:21:07

where we find Deb and Natalie so, Natalie, not far ahead,

0:21:070:21:09

but ahead. You know what you need to do.

0:21:090:21:11

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

0:21:110:21:13

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:130:21:15

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

0:21:180:21:21

I'll read them again.

0:21:510:21:53

Natalie, we need a low score from you.

0:22:200:22:25

Oh, Natalie, are you not liking this board?

0:22:260:22:28

No, I preferred the first one!

0:22:280:22:30

-Oh, I'm sorry.

-Erm...

0:22:300:22:32

I'm going to go for Wilson and Stiller - Zoolander.

0:22:340:22:39

"Zoolander," says Natalie.

0:22:390:22:41

No red line for you cos you're the high-scorers.

0:22:410:22:43

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

0:22:430:22:46

It's right.

0:22:480:22:49

-Oh!

-Not bad, 44 for Zoolander.

0:22:510:22:54

It takes your total up to...

0:22:540:22:56

Yeah, it keeps you in the game. They released a sequel as well,

0:22:570:23:00

Zoolander 2, which I'm going to say was less good than Zoolander.

0:23:000:23:03

-This is what I gather. I haven't seen it, probably won't rush.

-Yeah.

0:23:030:23:07

Erm, Lup.

0:23:070:23:10

Lup, you now have a target in the shape of 52.

0:23:100:23:14

What would you like to go for?

0:23:140:23:16

I'm trying to think which one's going to be lowest.

0:23:160:23:18

I think I'm going to try the tiny door one

0:23:180:23:20

and that is Being John Malkovich.

0:23:200:23:23

Being John Malkovich," says Lup. Here is your red line.

0:23:230:23:25

Get below that red line and you are through to the next round.

0:23:250:23:29

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Being John Malkovich.

0:23:290:23:33

Yup, that's good enough.

0:23:390:23:40

It takes your total to...

0:23:430:23:45

Well played, Lup. Yes, the Cusack in question being John Cusack.

0:23:450:23:49

John Malkovich also in the film.

0:23:490:23:51

Thank you. Now, Steve...

0:23:510:23:53

Steve, this board is all yours.

0:23:540:23:56

If you want to go through our haikus and provide all the answers,

0:23:560:23:58

you'd be most welcome.

0:23:580:24:00

Erm, there's a few I know.

0:24:000:24:02

I'm guessing the second one is The Shining.

0:24:020:24:04

The third one is one of the Indiana Jones films

0:24:040:24:08

and the bottom one, I think, is Pulp Fiction.

0:24:080:24:12

And I think I'm going to go with Pulp Fiction.

0:24:130:24:15

OK, 61 is your target.

0:24:150:24:17

Here is your red line.

0:24:170:24:19

Get below that with Pulp Fiction and you are through to the head-to-head.

0:24:190:24:22

How many people said Pulp Fiction?

0:24:220:24:24

Oh, yes, I bet you weren't the only person to do that.

0:24:290:24:33

LAUGHTER

0:24:330:24:35

That 100 points, Steve, takes your total up to 117.

0:24:350:24:39

Ah, the look on Chris' face!

0:24:390:24:42

Ah, he was not happy one bit. It's not Pulp Fiction. Chris, it is...

0:24:440:24:48

-Reservoir Dogs.

-Reservoir Dogs.

-Oh, man!

0:24:480:24:51

Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade.

0:25:090:25:11

It was the best answer so well done if you said that.

0:25:140:25:17

So, at the end of our second round,

0:25:170:25:19

I'm afraid the pair we send home with the high score of 117,

0:25:190:25:22

very much against the grain of play,

0:25:220:25:23

but, Steve and Chris, I am afraid it is you.

0:25:230:25:26

I'm so sorry to be sending you home so early,

0:25:260:25:28

but you did brilliantly so far and you've left your mark on the game

0:25:280:25:31

with your addition to the jackpot there,

0:25:310:25:34

but thank you so much, Steve and Chris.

0:25:340:25:36

APPLAUSE

0:25:360:25:38

But for Ray and Lup, Natalie and Deb,

0:25:400:25:42

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

0:25:420:25:44

Well, congratulations, Ray and Lup, Natalie and Deb.

0:25:490:25:52

You are now one step closer to the final

0:25:520:25:54

and a chance to play for our jackpot,

0:25:540:25:56

which currently stands at...

0:25:560:25:57

Well, we have made it as far as the head-to-head,

0:25:580:26:00

for which congratulations.

0:26:000:26:02

From here on in, you can play as a team.

0:26:020:26:04

You can chat before you give your answers.

0:26:040:26:05

The first place to win two questions in this round

0:26:050:26:07

will be going through to play for that jackpot in the final.

0:26:070:26:10

Now, Ray and Lup, you've been here before and you were standing

0:26:100:26:13

right there as our low scorers. It was whipped away.

0:26:130:26:16

Natalie and Deb, they've been very good. It could happen again.

0:26:160:26:20

I wonder! It's going to be very exciting.

0:26:200:26:22

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

0:26:220:26:25

APPLAUSE

0:26:250:26:28

OK, here comes your first question and it concerns...

0:26:300:26:33

Richard.

0:26:370:26:38

We're going to show you five pictures

0:26:380:26:40

of historic events that happened during the 20th century.

0:26:400:26:42

We need you to name the decade in which these happened, please.

0:26:420:26:46

Thanks very much.

0:26:460:26:48

So, in which decades did these historic events happen?

0:26:480:26:50

Ray and Lup, you are our low-scorers so you will go first.

0:27:230:27:26

THEY WHISPER

0:27:300:27:33

It's a risk, but E -

0:27:350:27:38

around the 1930s.

0:27:380:27:40

The 1930s.

0:27:400:27:43

1930s for E.

0:27:430:27:44

OK, now, Natalie and Deb,

0:27:440:27:46

do you want to talk us through all those other events?

0:27:460:27:49

Well, we think the '50s.

0:27:490:27:51

Nixon will either be '60s or '70s, probably.

0:27:510:27:55

We think that's probably the Antarctic, the 1910s.

0:27:550:27:59

D is the 1960s and I think the Jarrow March is the '20s.

0:27:590:28:05

-Do you want to go for that?

-Go on, then.

0:28:050:28:08

Can we say the '20s for the Jarrow...

0:28:080:28:11

You can say it together, if you like.

0:28:110:28:13

You're going to go for the '20s for the Jarrow March.

0:28:130:28:15

OK, so, Ray and Lup, you've gone for the 1930s.

0:28:150:28:18

Let's see if that's right for E.

0:28:180:28:20

Well, let's just see if it's right.

0:28:200:28:22

-It is...

-Oh!

-..the 1930s.

0:28:250:28:29

That's taken a little bit of jeopardy out of this next...

0:28:370:28:39

Just a little bit, but there we are.

0:28:390:28:41

Natalie and Deb, let's see what happens when we say...

0:28:410:28:44

Maybe it's a very long march.

0:28:440:28:46

Let's see what happens when we say the 1920s. I have a hunch.

0:28:470:28:51

Yes, that's what I thought might happen. There we are.

0:28:520:28:55

Very well done, Ray and Lup, worth taking that risk.

0:28:550:28:58

That means after one question, you're up 1-0.

0:28:580:29:00

Yeah, the Jarrow March was in 1936.

0:29:000:29:02

I think you were maybe thinking of the General Strike in '26,

0:29:020:29:05

-maybe, and getting them...

-Maybe that's it.

-Funnily enough,

0:29:050:29:08

there's one answer on the board that would have beaten it

0:29:080:29:10

and that is C, which is Amundsen reaching the South Pole,

0:29:100:29:13

which was the 1910s.

0:29:130:29:14

And you were right about the others.

0:29:170:29:19

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:29:390:29:40

So, here comes your second question, Natalie and Deb.

0:29:400:29:42

You know what you have to do here,

0:29:420:29:44

but you get to answer it first, which is good.

0:29:440:29:46

So, best of luck with that.

0:29:460:29:47

Our second question is all about...

0:29:470:29:51

It's all about sheep.

0:29:520:29:53

Yeah, just five clues to facts about sheep now.

0:29:530:29:56

Can you give us the most obscure answer?

0:29:560:29:58

Let's reveal our five clues and here they are.

0:29:580:30:01

I'm going to read all of those again.

0:30:220:30:23

There we are.

0:30:400:30:41

Natalie and Deb will go first.

0:30:410:30:42

It could be New Zealand.

0:30:430:30:45

What should I go for?

0:30:450:30:46

Go for the stomachs?

0:30:460:30:47

We're going to try the stomachs and say four.

0:30:500:30:53

"Four stomachs," say Natalie and Deb.

0:30:530:30:56

Now, then, Ray and Lup, what would you like to go for?

0:30:560:31:01

Talk us through that board.

0:31:010:31:03

The country's either New Zealand or Australia, I think.

0:31:030:31:06

Adult female sheep is a ewe.

0:31:060:31:09

Star sign is Aries

0:31:090:31:12

and the Aardman Animation is Shaun the Sheep.

0:31:120:31:16

Let's go with the Aardman Animation,

0:31:160:31:18

Shaun the Sheep.

0:31:180:31:20

OK, "Shaun," say Ray and Lup. So we've got four and we've got Shaun.

0:31:200:31:24

Natalie and Deb said four stomachs.

0:31:240:31:26

Let's see if that's right,

0:31:260:31:27

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

0:31:270:31:31

It's right.

0:31:330:31:34

It is four stomachs.

0:31:360:31:38

APPLAUSE

0:31:390:31:42

Ray and Lup, meanwhile, have gone for Shaun the Sheep.

0:31:450:31:47

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

0:31:470:31:50

It's right.

0:31:520:31:53

55. Very well done. Natalie and Deb, you're back in the game.

0:31:550:31:58

After two questions it's 1-1.

0:31:580:32:01

Yeah, good head-to-head it is.

0:32:010:32:02

There's only one answer that would have beaten that.

0:32:020:32:04

The name given to an adult female sheep is a ewe.

0:32:040:32:07

That's a big scorer.

0:32:070:32:08

82 points for that.

0:32:080:32:10

The star sign, you're right gents, is Aries, 64 for that.

0:32:100:32:13

Now this other one, if you'd been forced to go for something

0:32:130:32:15

-what would you have gone for?

-New Zealand.

0:32:150:32:17

44 of our 100 said New Zealand

0:32:170:32:19

and they were wrong.

0:32:190:32:21

One of our 100 got it right

0:32:210:32:23

-cos they said China.

-Oh.

0:32:230:32:25

China is the answer to that, which is you think about it makes sense.

0:32:250:32:28

Of course it makes sense.

0:32:280:32:29

-Cos it's big and it's got sheep in it.

-Mmm.

-Mmm.

0:32:290:32:33

There we are, thank you very much, Richard.

0:32:330:32:35

It all comes down to our third and final question.

0:32:350:32:37

Whoever wins this goes through to the final

0:32:370:32:39

to play for that jackpot. Best of luck to both pairs.

0:32:390:32:41

Our third question is all about...

0:32:410:32:44

Wine Grapes.

0:32:450:32:46

Wine Grapes, Richard.

0:32:460:32:47

We're going to show you five types of wine grape but with

0:32:470:32:49

alternate letters removed from their name.

0:32:490:32:51

Whichever team gives us the most obscure answer is going through

0:32:510:32:54

-to play for that jackpot.

-Thank you very much, indeed.

0:32:540:32:56

Let's reveal our five wine grapes with bites taken out.

0:32:560:32:59

And here they are...

0:32:590:33:01

There we go. Ray and Lup will go first.

0:33:210:33:24

We're a bit stuck, so potentially playing it a bit too safe,

0:33:320:33:36

but hopefully...

0:33:360:33:37

Cabernet Sauvignon, the second one.

0:33:380:33:40

OK, you say Cabernet Sauvignon.

0:33:400:33:42

Now, Natalie and Deb, do you want to talk us through that board?

0:33:420:33:46

-We'd rather drink it.

-We'd rather drink it.

0:33:470:33:51

Well, it's Merlot...

0:33:510:33:53

-I don't know the next two.

-I just can't think.

0:33:540:33:57

The last one's Lambrusco.

0:33:570:33:59

We'll have to go for Lambrusco.

0:34:010:34:03

OK, you're going to go for Lambrusco.

0:34:030:34:06

We have Cabernet Sauvignon and we have Lambrusco.

0:34:060:34:08

Ray and Lup have gone for Cabernet Sauvignon.

0:34:080:34:11

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

0:34:110:34:14

It's right.

0:34:170:34:18

35

0:34:220:34:23

APPLAUSE

0:34:230:34:24

I wouldn't want to call this, it's going to be very close, I think.

0:34:260:34:29

Natalie and Deb, meanwhile, have gone for Lambrusco.

0:34:290:34:32

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

0:34:320:34:34

Oh!

0:34:410:34:43

Couldn't be closer than that!

0:34:430:34:45

My goodness! 36 for Lambrusco.

0:34:450:34:48

Ray and Lup very well done.

0:34:480:34:49

I said this was going to be hard-won.

0:34:490:34:52

There you are up to three questions and there's just one point in it.

0:34:520:34:55

Ray and Lup you are going through to the final, 2-1.

0:34:550:34:57

That's a terrific head-to-head. Well played everybody.

0:34:570:35:00

Um, the biggest scorer up there is the top one, that's Merlot.

0:35:000:35:04

It scored 51.

0:35:040:35:05

The next one down...

0:35:050:35:07

-Shiraz.

-Shiraz.

-Shiraz, yes.

0:35:070:35:09

Would have scored 18.

0:35:090:35:11

18 would have seen you through to the final.

0:35:110:35:14

And, do you know this next one?

0:35:140:35:16

No.

0:35:160:35:17

It's Nebbiolo.

0:35:170:35:19

Nebbiolo.

0:35:190:35:21

Grown in Piedmont. One point for that.

0:35:210:35:23

Very well done if you said that at home.

0:35:230:35:25

-Very, very well done if you're drinking that at home.

-LAUGHTER

0:35:250:35:27

Very good. Thank you very much, indeed.

0:35:270:35:29

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

0:35:290:35:31

I'm afraid, it's Natalie and Deb. It's good news, really,

0:35:310:35:34

because it means you'll be back for the next show, which is great.

0:35:340:35:37

Thanks very much, Natalie and Deb. APPLAUSE

0:35:370:35:39

But for Ray and Lup it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:410:35:44

Well, congratulations Ray and Lup.

0:35:490:35:50

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

0:35:500:35:53

our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:530:35:54

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot,

0:36:000:36:02

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

0:36:020:36:05

£1,250.

0:36:050:36:07

Well, congratulations.

0:36:070:36:09

Second time lucky.

0:36:090:36:11

Right the way through to the head-to-head in both cases

0:36:110:36:13

and just one point in it in the third question.

0:36:130:36:16

Well, as always you get to choose your category from the four

0:36:160:36:18

that we put up on the board.

0:36:180:36:20

Let's see what today's selection looks like. We have got...

0:36:200:36:23

-What do you reckon?

-New Jersey in popular culture,

0:36:320:36:34

at least it'll be cultural and you'd...

0:36:340:36:37

-It's a chance.

-Yeah.

-Rugby...

-Let's just go for New Jersey.

0:36:370:36:40

New Jersey in popular culture, please.

0:36:400:36:43

OK, New Jersey in popular culture.

0:36:430:36:45

Excellent! It's been on the board for a while

0:36:450:36:46

but nice questions in there.

0:36:460:36:48

I think people are always put off it, but very best of luck.

0:36:480:36:50

Hopefully one of these suits you.

0:36:500:36:51

We're looking for any feature film made for cinema release

0:36:510:36:54

which John Travolta has received an acting credit.

0:36:540:36:57

Born in New Jersey, of course.

0:36:570:36:59

We are looking for any of the 36 main characters in The Sopranos

0:36:590:37:04

as listed on the official HBO website,

0:37:040:37:06

or looking for any of the tracks on the original album release

0:37:060:37:10

of Born In The USA by Bruce Springsteen.

0:37:100:37:12

So John Travolta movies up to the end of December 2015,

0:37:120:37:16

characters in The Sopranos, those main 36 characters

0:37:160:37:19

and tracks on Born In The USA. Very best of luck.

0:37:190:37:22

Thanks, Richard. As always you've got up to one minute

0:37:220:37:24

to come up with three answers.

0:37:240:37:25

All you need to win that jackpot is just one of your answers to

0:37:250:37:28

-be pointless. Are you ready?

-Ready.

0:37:280:37:30

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

0:37:300:37:32

Your time starts now!

0:37:320:37:34

OK, the John Travolta ones, that horror film that you like.

0:37:340:37:37

Carrie. He was in Carrie.

0:37:370:37:38

Er, I don't know either of two other subjects unless you do.

0:37:380:37:42

-No. He was in Pulp Fiction but that's going to be too obvious.

-Yes.

0:37:420:37:46

-I'm sticking on John Travolta, to be honest.

-Yeah.

0:37:460:37:49

Grease, that's too obvious.

0:37:530:37:56

What was the other, Saturday Night Fever?

0:37:560:37:58

There must be something recent... Swordfish he was in, wasn't he?

0:37:580:38:01

-Swordfish might be a good one, yes.

-Swordfish, Carrie...

0:38:010:38:04

-Swordfish, Carrie.

-And...

0:38:040:38:07

Um...

0:38:070:38:09

Saturday Night Fever number two.

0:38:090:38:11

-Was there a second one?

-Yeah, there was.

0:38:110:38:14

Staying Alive it was called.

0:38:140:38:15

I will say go for that one.

0:38:150:38:17

Staying Alive?

0:38:170:38:20

So we've got Carrie, Swordfish...

0:38:200:38:24

Ten seconds left.

0:38:240:38:25

And, um, Staying Alive.

0:38:250:38:27

OK, I think we're ready.

0:38:270:38:28

OK, there we are, your time is just running out now.

0:38:280:38:32

Let's have your three answers.

0:38:320:38:34

If you can say which category you're answering.

0:38:340:38:36

-We're going to go for all three John Travolta films.

-OK.

0:38:360:38:39

-The first one's Carrie.

-Carrie.

-The second one's Staying Alive.

0:38:390:38:43

-Staying Alive.

-And the third one's Swordfish.

-Swordfish.

0:38:430:38:45

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

0:38:450:38:47

-Swordfish.

-Swordfish.

-Swordfish goes last. Least like to be pointless?

0:38:470:38:51

-Staying Alive.

-Staying Alive we put first.

0:38:510:38:53

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

0:38:530:38:55

Here they are. We've got...

0:38:550:38:57

Well, very, very best of luck.

0:39:010:39:02

Three good answers on the board there.

0:39:020:39:04

One of those could easily be pointless and might win that jackpot for you.

0:39:040:39:07

What would you do with it, £1,250?

0:39:070:39:10

I'd like to continue my travelling and I fancy going to Japan,

0:39:110:39:15

-so it'll go towards a flight to Japan, I think.

-Very good.

0:39:150:39:18

Ray, how about you?

0:39:180:39:20

I'm a bit of a techie type of person so I'd like to have

0:39:200:39:22

a cloud AV system in the house

0:39:220:39:24

so I can watch whatever I want in any room of the house.

0:39:240:39:26

-I want to invest in one of those.

-OK.

0:39:260:39:29

Well, very, very best of luck.

0:39:290:39:30

Your first answer was Staying Alive.

0:39:300:39:33

In all three cases we were looking for John Travolta films.

0:39:330:39:35

If this is pointless it wins you £1,250.

0:39:350:39:38

How many people said Staying Alive?

0:39:380:39:40

It's right.

0:39:430:39:45

It's right. Now let's see how far down the column we get.

0:39:450:39:47

If it goes all the way down to zero you leave with £1,250.

0:39:470:39:50

Staying Alive goes through the teens.

0:39:500:39:52

Into single figures, still going down.

0:39:520:39:54

-Down it goes.

-Oh!

-3. Look at that.

0:39:540:39:55

APPLAUSE

0:39:550:39:57

Very exciting, indeed.

0:39:570:39:59

That's a great answer. What a great score.

0:39:590:40:02

Sadly not a pointless answer though.

0:40:020:40:04

And only pointless answers count in this round.

0:40:040:40:06

We have to go back to the board and see what your next answer was.

0:40:060:40:09

Carrie.

0:40:090:40:10

Again looking for John Travolta films.

0:40:100:40:12

If this is pointless, it wins you £1,250.

0:40:120:40:15

How many people said Carrie?

0:40:150:40:16

Well, again, it is right.

0:40:200:40:21

Staying Alive took us all the way down to 3.

0:40:210:40:24

Carrie takes us through the 30s and the 20s.

0:40:240:40:26

Down through the teens, is it going into single figures? Yes.

0:40:260:40:30

Still going down, down it goes...

0:40:300:40:31

-Down to 2.

-Oh!

-APPLAUSE

0:40:310:40:33

Fantastic!

0:40:330:40:35

This is all moving in the right direction, surely.

0:40:370:40:40

Looking very good for your third and final answer.

0:40:400:40:43

Everything is riding on Swordfish.

0:40:430:40:45

Once again we are looking for John Travolta films.

0:40:450:40:49

Let's find out how many people said Swordfish for £1,250.

0:40:490:40:53

Is it pointless?

0:40:530:40:55

It's a third correct answer.

0:40:590:41:01

So far we've had Staying Alive taking us down to 3,

0:41:010:41:03

Carrie took us down to 2.

0:41:030:41:05

Swordfish now takes us down into the teens.

0:41:050:41:08

Down into single figures again.

0:41:080:41:09

Down we go... Oh, no, 4. AUDIENCE GROANS

0:41:090:41:12

APPLAUSE

0:41:120:41:14

Oh, that was exciting.

0:41:150:41:17

Three brilliant answers there.

0:41:170:41:18

I'm afraid you didn't manage to find that pointless answer,

0:41:200:41:22

so we can't give you today's jackpot of £1,250.

0:41:220:41:25

That rolls over onto the next show, but what

0:41:250:41:27

a great performance across both shows.

0:41:270:41:29

Our low-scorers in each head-to-head you were in.

0:41:290:41:32

And you get a Pointless trophy each to take home in recognition

0:41:320:41:35

of that, but I'm sorry you didn't get to take home the jackpot.

0:41:350:41:38

Very well done, Ray and Lup. APPLAUSE

0:41:380:41:41

Yeah, three very nice answers there and thank you for going for

0:41:440:41:46

that category, as well. It was quite nice,

0:41:460:41:48

wasn't it? It wasn't a terrible one.

0:41:480:41:50

Some people at home will have got pointless answers,

0:41:500:41:52

especially John Travolta films.

0:41:520:41:53

There's a few that you definitely would have seen.

0:41:530:41:55

Let's take a look at that category first.

0:41:550:41:58

Er, Ladder 49.

0:41:580:41:59

He's in Look Who's Talking Now,

0:41:590:42:00

the third film of the Look Who's Talking films.

0:42:000:42:02

The other two were not pointless.

0:42:020:42:04

Perfect. Primary Colors about US politics.

0:42:040:42:05

Battlefield Earth was a pointless answer.

0:42:050:42:08

Basic. Be Cool is a pointless answer.

0:42:080:42:10

The Taking of Pellam 123, one of his more recent films,

0:42:100:42:12

a pointless answer. The Thin Red Line,

0:42:120:42:14

plenty of pointless answers out there.

0:42:140:42:16

Now let's take a look, the characters in The Sopranos.

0:42:160:42:18

Almost all of these were pointless.

0:42:180:42:20

Dr Jennifer Melfi, played by Lorraine Bracco.

0:42:200:42:22

Tony Soprano's mum, Livia's a pointless answer.

0:42:220:42:25

Paulie Walnuts, a pointless answer.

0:42:250:42:26

Tony Blundetto played by Steve Buscemi.

0:42:260:42:29

Um, the only answers that weren't pointless were

0:42:290:42:32

Tony Soprano, Meadow Soprano and Corrado - Junior.

0:42:320:42:35

All the other characters were pointless answers.

0:42:350:42:37

Tracks from Born In the USA, there's five pointless answers here.

0:42:370:42:40

And No Surrender.

0:42:430:42:45

Very well done if you got pointless answers in any of those categories.

0:42:450:42:48

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:42:480:42:49
