APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:00:180:00:20

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:200:00:21

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

0:00:210:00:24

the show that puts obscure knowledge to the test.

0:00:240:00:27

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:270:00:28

And couple number one.

0:00:320:00:34

Hi, I'm Robert, this is my mum, Ann, and we're both from Watford.

0:00:340:00:37

Couple number two.

0:00:370:00:39

Hi, I'm Sophie, this is my friend, Charlotte, and we're from Sheffield.

0:00:390:00:42

Couple number three.

0:00:420:00:43

Hi, I'm George, this is my friend and neighbour Vicki

0:00:430:00:45

and we're from Barnsley.

0:00:450:00:47

And, finally, couple number four.

0:00:470:00:49

Hi, I'm David, this is Leanne

0:00:490:00:50

and we're from Livingston just outside Edinburgh.

0:00:500:00:53

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:530:00:55

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

0:00:570:01:00

We'll get to chat to each of you, of course, as the show goes along.

0:01:000:01:03

That just leaves one more person for me to introduce.

0:01:030:01:05

He may not be all things to all people

0:01:050:01:07

but he is the right thing to the right people.

0:01:070:01:09

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

0:01:090:01:12

Hiya. Hi, everybody.

0:01:120:01:14

-Good afternoon.

-Good afternoon to you.

-And to you.

-Are you well?

0:01:140:01:17

I'm very well, thank you. Excellent.

0:01:170:01:19

Two pairs returning from the last show.

0:01:190:01:21

Had very different shows, though.

0:01:210:01:22

Ann and Robert got all the way through to the head-to-head.

0:01:220:01:25

Did very, very well. Sophie and Charlotte we need to see more of

0:01:250:01:27

this time. Got knocked out in Round One last time.

0:01:270:01:30

And two lovely new pairs as well.

0:01:300:01:32

-I know.

-On podiums three and four, the furthest away from us.

0:01:320:01:35

-Yes.

-I think there should be a system whereby if you've

0:01:350:01:37

been on before you're a little bit further

0:01:370:01:39

away and the new people are nearer to us,

0:01:390:01:41

because it's just more friendly.

0:01:410:01:43

Yeah. I always like it though when people have been on the far podium

0:01:430:01:45

-and move up close. I like that as well.

-That's nice.

0:01:450:01:47

I've taken slight offence that Sophie and Charlotte have

0:01:470:01:50

moved further away. You think, "something's up there."

0:01:500:01:52

-Did you choose that podium?

-Maybe.

0:01:520:01:54

LAUGHTER

0:01:540:01:55

I'm hearing they chose number four, they weren't given it.

0:01:550:01:58

Well, ain't that a kick in the face?

0:01:580:01:59

Isn't it? It should be a lovely show.

0:01:590:02:01

The first one's an interesting one.

0:02:010:02:03

There's an answer for everybody in that first round

0:02:030:02:05

but there's some nice obscure ones, too.

0:02:050:02:07

OK, thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:02:070:02:09

Now, Ruth and Jamie didn't win the jackpot last time which means we add

0:02:090:02:12

another £1,000 to that, so today's jackpot starts off at £2,000.

0:02:120:02:17

There we are.

0:02:170:02:18

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

0:02:200:02:22

So, remember this, the pair with the highest score at the end of

0:02:280:02:31

each round will be eliminated.

0:02:310:02:33

Just keep your scores low and that won't be you.

0:02:330:02:35

No conferring till we get to the head-to-head.

0:02:350:02:37

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

0:02:370:02:41

is transport.

0:02:410:02:42

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

0:02:420:02:45

who's going to go second?

0:02:450:02:47

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

0:02:470:02:50

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:530:02:57

-Richard.

-Yes, on each board we're

0:03:020:03:04

going to show you the names of seven vehicles from film or TV franchises

0:03:040:03:07

and you just need to tell us

0:03:070:03:08

which film or TV franchise they're from, please.

0:03:080:03:11

14 in all to have a go at at home, so very best of luck.

0:03:110:03:13

Thanks very much indeed.

0:03:130:03:14

So we're looking for the film or TV show that these vehicles first

0:03:140:03:17

appeared in. And here is our first board of seven.

0:03:170:03:20

I'll read those all again.

0:03:320:03:34

Now then, Ann, welcome back.

0:03:430:03:46

You were our low-scorers.

0:03:460:03:47

Right the way through to the head-to-head.

0:03:470:03:51

-Yeah.

-And then it was 2-0.

0:03:510:03:54

Anyway, welcome back. Remind us what you do, Ann.

0:03:540:03:56

I work for a pharmaceutical company in Hatfield

0:03:560:04:00

and I'm an administrator there in the learning and development team.

0:04:000:04:04

Very good indeed. And what are your hobbies, Ann?

0:04:040:04:07

Apart from playing tennis, which I love to do,

0:04:070:04:09

I also like to walk and I like to garden, and I like to read.

0:04:090:04:13

There's lots of things I like to do.

0:04:130:04:14

Very good indeed. Now how do you feel about these vehicles?

0:04:140:04:18

Some I've never heard of, but I'll go with one that I will know, so...

0:04:180:04:23

..I've got to go with FAB 1 and I believe that's Thunderbirds.

0:04:250:04:29

Thunderbird says Ann for FAB 1.

0:04:290:04:31

Let's see how many of 100 people said Thunderbirds.

0:04:310:04:33

It's right.

0:04:360:04:37

62.

0:04:390:04:40

Not bad. Good, solid start to the round.

0:04:420:04:44

Yeah, pink Rolls-Royce of course, FAB 1.

0:04:440:04:47

-A bit showy, as a number plate, that, isn't it?

-A bit showy.

0:04:470:04:49

A bit showy to have a pink Rolls-Royce in the first place,

0:04:490:04:51

-but...

-Yeah.

-..there it is.

0:04:510:04:53

I saw somebody in a blacked-out Rolls-Royce coupe,

0:04:530:04:56

which, in itself, is something haven't seen before,

0:04:560:04:59

with the number plate media - M-E-D-1-A.

0:04:590:05:04

-Oh, man.

-I know.

0:05:040:05:05

I was trying to see who it was,

0:05:050:05:07

but it was blacked out, I couldn't see it. Couldn't see.

0:05:070:05:09

I bet it's Simon Cowell.

0:05:090:05:11

LAUGHTER

0:05:110:05:13

Now then, Charlotte, welcome back to Pointless.

0:05:130:05:16

Yes, Round One we had to say goodbye to you last time.

0:05:160:05:18

We'll have no repetition of that, thank you very much indeed.

0:05:180:05:20

-Hopefully.

-Remind us what you do, Charlotte.

0:05:200:05:22

I work in a law firm in Sheffield as a conflicts assistant.

0:05:220:05:26

That's right. What do you like

0:05:260:05:27

getting up to when you're not working?

0:05:270:05:29

I go to the cinema, I go shopping,

0:05:290:05:30

I spend a lot of time with my friends and my family.

0:05:300:05:33

Excellent. What would you like to go for on this board?

0:05:330:05:36

There's a couple that I think I know, one extremely obvious one,

0:05:360:05:40

but I think I'm going to go with USS Enterprise and Star Trek.

0:05:400:05:44

Star Trek says Charlotte. Let's see if that is right,

0:05:440:05:46

let's see how many of 100 people said Star Trek.

0:05:460:05:49

It's...

0:05:530:05:55

87.

0:05:550:05:56

Big score for Star Trek.

0:05:560:05:57

The 11-foot model

0:05:590:06:00

used in the original filming of Star Trek of the USS Enterprise

0:06:000:06:03

is in the Smithsonian, the air and space museum.

0:06:030:06:06

-Is it?

-That's quite cool. It needs a little bit of upkeep, apparently.

0:06:060:06:09

I should think it does.

0:06:090:06:10

Thank you, Richard. Now, George, welcome to Pointless.

0:06:100:06:13

Great to have you here from Barnsley.

0:06:130:06:15

What keeps you busy in Barnsley, George?

0:06:150:06:17

I watch a lot of sport,

0:06:170:06:19

read a lot.

0:06:190:06:20

Quizzes, pub quizzes and that sort of stuff.

0:06:220:06:25

Do you have a favourite sport?

0:06:250:06:27

-Football.

-Football.

0:06:270:06:28

-And rugby union.

-And rugby union.

0:06:280:06:30

Of course, around Barnsley, you have to specify.

0:06:300:06:32

Two very different disciplines.

0:06:320:06:34

Oh, yes.

0:06:340:06:36

Now then, George, how are you liking our vehicles?

0:06:360:06:39

I'm going to try Arkansas Chuggabug and Wacky Races.

0:06:390:06:42

Wacky Races, says George for the Arkansas Chuggabug.

0:06:420:06:45

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

0:06:450:06:47

That is a great answer.

0:06:550:06:56

Look at that.

0:06:560:06:58

13. Very well done indeed, George.

0:06:580:07:00

Best answer of the round so far, by a distance.

0:07:000:07:02

Well played, George, great stuff.

0:07:040:07:05

And also thank you so much. It's so lovely to hear

0:07:050:07:07

Arkansas Chuggabug said in a Barnsley accent.

0:07:070:07:10

-Thank you.

-Perfect. They should get George to re-voice the whole series.

0:07:100:07:13

-I'd watch that.

-I would watch that.

0:07:150:07:16

I'd not only watch that, I'd buy the DVD of that.

0:07:160:07:19

How much?

0:07:190:07:20

LAUGHTER

0:07:200:07:22

Let's have a chat later, George. Very nice.

0:07:230:07:26

-David, welcome to Pointless, from Livingston.

-Yeah.

0:07:260:07:28

What do you do up in Livingston?

0:07:280:07:30

I am an account manager for a steel firm.

0:07:300:07:32

We supply steel to the oil and gas industry, typically.

0:07:320:07:36

I see, and do you sell all around the world?

0:07:360:07:38

Yeah, mainly in Europe but our supply chain is global

0:07:380:07:40

so I travel here and there.

0:07:400:07:42

-I was just going to say.

-I've been a few places.

0:07:420:07:44

That's quite fun, isn't it?

0:07:440:07:45

It's not bad. It gets stamps in the passport which is always good,

0:07:450:07:48

makes me look pretty flash.

0:07:480:07:50

-What are your hobbies, David?

-I like running, walking the dogs,

0:07:500:07:53

I like sport, big cricket fan.

0:07:530:07:55

That's a bit weird for a Scotsman but...

0:07:550:07:57

-Who do you support?

-I have to say I actually quite like watching

0:07:570:08:00

the England cricket team, only because it's on the telly

0:08:000:08:03

and easy to watch and there's some good characters in there.

0:08:030:08:06

There you are. OK, David,

0:08:060:08:07

this board's all yours if you want to go through it.

0:08:070:08:09

I'd like to. I know three.

0:08:090:08:12

I don't know Reptar Wagon.

0:08:120:08:14

I know General Lee is Dukes Of Hazzard,

0:08:140:08:18

KITT's Knight Rider and Hogwarts Express is Harry Potter.

0:08:180:08:22

I think I'll go with General Lee and The Dukes Of Hazzard.

0:08:220:08:25

Dukes Of Hazzard says David for General Lee.

0:08:250:08:27

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

0:08:270:08:29

It's right.

0:08:320:08:34

45. Not bad.

0:08:370:08:39

Further down than I was expecting for General Lee.

0:08:390:08:41

45 for The Dukes Of Hazzard.

0:08:410:08:43

Yeah, great start, David, well played.

0:08:430:08:45

I used to love The Dukes of Hazzard so much.

0:08:450:08:47

The General Lee, the one that used to jump over the police cars

0:08:470:08:49

in the opening credits, was bought by the golfer Bubba Watson

0:08:490:08:52

and he painted over the Confederate flag on the roof.

0:08:520:08:54

He said, "I believe all men are created equal,"

0:08:540:08:56

so he painted the American flag on the roof instead. Quite nice.

0:08:560:08:59

-Now that's the best of all worlds, isn't it?

-Yeah.

-Very good.

0:08:590:09:03

Now, shall we fill in the rest of these?

0:09:030:09:06

KITT is Knight Rider, yeah.

0:09:060:09:09

Knight Industries. 66 points for that.

0:09:090:09:11

The Reptar Wagon is the best answer on the board.

0:09:110:09:13

Some people will remember this.

0:09:130:09:15

It was in Rugrats.

0:09:150:09:16

Very well done if you said that. It would've scored you three points.

0:09:160:09:19

Now, Hogwarts, it's a train, and it is the Harry Potter books,

0:09:190:09:23

and that would've scored you..

0:09:230:09:24

-What do you think it would have scored you?

-84.

0:09:240:09:27

-91! Look at that.

-91.

0:09:270:09:29

So only four more than Star Trek.

0:09:290:09:31

There you go. Thank you very much, Richard.

0:09:310:09:34

We're halfway through our first round

0:09:340:09:35

so let's take a look at those scores.

0:09:350:09:37

13 very much the best score of that pass, George.

0:09:370:09:39

Well done, you. George and Vicki, I think

0:09:390:09:41

you'll be in Round Two on the back of that. Then up we go to 45

0:09:410:09:44

where we find David and Leanne.

0:09:440:09:46

Then up to 62, Ann and Robert.

0:09:460:09:47

Then 87 where we find Charlotte and Sophie.

0:09:470:09:50

Now, Charlotte and Sophie, this happened last time,

0:09:500:09:52

you're the high-scorers halfway through. But, Sophie,

0:09:520:09:55

-a nice, low score from you is exactly what we need.

-No pressure.

0:09:550:09:59

Yes, lots of pressure.

0:09:590:10:00

Lots of pressure. We can't say goodbye to you at the end of

0:10:000:10:02

the first round again this time. That'd just be wrong.

0:10:020:10:04

We'll come back down the line now.

0:10:040:10:06

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:10:060:10:08

OK, so let's put seven more names of vehicles from film and TV

0:10:120:10:16

up on the screen. And here they are.

0:10:160:10:19

I shall read as those all again.

0:10:280:10:29

Leanne, a warm welcome from Livingston.

0:10:350:10:37

What do you do, Leanne?

0:10:370:10:39

I work as a customer service manager

0:10:390:10:41

within the telecommunications industry.

0:10:410:10:43

Right, you're not based on a telephone, are you?

0:10:430:10:46

Not always, no.

0:10:460:10:48

No. OK, good. What are your interests, Leanne?

0:10:480:10:50

I'm very much into keep fit. I do a lot of spinning classes.

0:10:500:10:53

Oh, spinning classes.

0:10:530:10:55

How many of those did you have to do before you liked them?

0:10:550:10:58

For me it was only one. I now do about three or four a week.

0:10:580:11:02

I've done a couple and I just fell off the bike. It's just horrific.

0:11:020:11:07

A whole hour of that!

0:11:070:11:09

One of the classes is an hour

0:11:090:11:10

but the majority of them are about 45 minutes.

0:11:100:11:12

That's still 44 minutes more than I can do on one of those things.

0:11:120:11:16

You're on 45. Great score from David in the first pass.

0:11:160:11:19

Should you score 41 or less, you're definitely in the next round.

0:11:190:11:22

Right, OK. There's a couple that I know.

0:11:230:11:25

I think I am going to go with Lightning McQueen and Cars.

0:11:260:11:29

Lightning McQueen and Cars.

0:11:290:11:31

Let's see. Here is your red line.

0:11:310:11:33

Let's see if you can get below that with Cars.

0:11:330:11:35

It's right.

0:11:390:11:40

45. Not bad at all.

0:11:440:11:45

Exactly the same score as David on the first pass,

0:11:450:11:47

taking your score up to 90.

0:11:470:11:49

I should think that's good enough.

0:11:490:11:50

Yeah, voiced by Owen Wilson, Lightning McQueen.

0:11:500:11:53

He's a hotshot race car.

0:11:530:11:55

Race car of course is a palindrome.

0:11:550:11:57

Look at that. What about that?

0:11:570:12:00

What about that?

0:12:000:12:03

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:12:030:12:05

Vicki, welcome.

0:12:050:12:06

-Hi.

-Here from Barnsley.

0:12:060:12:07

What do you do in Barnsley?

0:12:070:12:09

I'm a stay-at-home mum

0:12:090:12:10

to my 18-month-old daughter.

0:12:100:12:12

-What's she called?

-Elsie.

0:12:120:12:14

Elsie, hello.

0:12:140:12:16

Lovely. And what do you like

0:12:160:12:17

getting up to if you get any time,

0:12:170:12:18

if Elsie gives you time?

0:12:180:12:20

That's very true.

0:12:200:12:21

Swimming, I enjoy swimming.

0:12:210:12:24

I do bespoke sewing for my friends.

0:12:240:12:26

Now that's nice. Bespoke sewing,

0:12:260:12:28

so what of things do you do?

0:12:280:12:29

Little embroideries?

0:12:290:12:31

Yes, for example I've just done a big wall hanging for a friend

0:12:310:12:34

for her son 's christening, things like that.

0:12:340:12:36

-Is that's something you taught yourself to do?

-Yes.

-Wonderful.

0:12:360:12:40

Very good. Lovely low score

0:12:400:12:41

from George, by the way, in the first pass.

0:12:410:12:43

-Thank you.

-It sets you up extremely well.

0:12:430:12:46

76 or less gets you into the next round.

0:12:460:12:50

What would you like to go for?

0:12:500:12:51

The Mystery Machine, please,

0:12:520:12:54

and Scooby-Doo.

0:12:540:12:56

Scooby-Doo says Vicki. Here is your red line.

0:12:560:12:58

If you get below that with the Mystery Machine and Scooby-Doo

0:12:580:13:01

you are into Round Two.

0:13:010:13:02

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Scooby-Doo.

0:13:020:13:05

It's right.

0:13:080:13:09

And you're through. Well done.

0:13:090:13:11

44.

0:13:120:13:13

44, taking your total up to 57.

0:13:130:13:16

The lowest total of the round I might add.

0:13:160:13:19

Yeah, no mucking about on podium three there.

0:13:190:13:21

Absolutely, the Mystery Machine.

0:13:210:13:23

-Ruined by Scrappy-Doo, that entire franchise.

-I know, Scrappy-Doo.

0:13:230:13:26

-What were they thinking?

-What?

-There's the mystery.

0:13:260:13:29

There's the mystery right there.

0:13:290:13:31

Now then, Sophie.

0:13:310:13:33

-Remind us what you do.

-I'm a bespoke administrator for an occupational

0:13:330:13:37

-health company.

-That's right, and what are your interests, Sophie?

0:13:370:13:39

I like travelling. I like going to horror houses.

0:13:390:13:43

You like going to horror houses?

0:13:430:13:45

Just talk us through that.

0:13:450:13:47

Like a walk through a scary house.

0:13:470:13:48

I've been to one in Blackpool

0:13:480:13:50

and one in Paris.

0:13:500:13:51

One that's famously haunted or...

0:13:510:13:53

One where there's actors and

0:13:530:13:55

you have to try and, like,

0:13:550:13:57

escape without...dying.

0:13:570:13:59

LAUGHTER

0:13:590:14:01

Wow. Do they do it at night-time?

0:14:010:14:04

No, it's through the day,

0:14:040:14:05

but it's really dark inside so...

0:14:050:14:07

Are you given a little candle?

0:14:070:14:08

No, you don't have anything in Blackpool

0:14:080:14:10

but in Paris I had a glow stick

0:14:100:14:12

so they could speak English to me.

0:14:120:14:13

That is hilarious.

0:14:150:14:16

Multilingual scary houses.

0:14:160:14:19

So you go in and you participate.

0:14:190:14:20

It's like a theatrical experience?

0:14:200:14:22

Yeah, you go in as groups

0:14:220:14:24

and you walk through and then there's usually a story.

0:14:240:14:27

-And then you count your number and there's two missing?

-Yeah.

0:14:270:14:30

What happens to them?

0:14:300:14:31

I hope you see them again.

0:14:310:14:33

No. Never.

0:14:330:14:35

Wow.

0:14:350:14:36

Terrifying. Sophie, you're on 87.

0:14:370:14:40

We have to have a score of two or less from you.

0:14:400:14:43

What would you like to go for?

0:14:430:14:44

I only know two, but I think they're

0:14:460:14:48

going to be really high-scoring.

0:14:480:14:49

I don't even think I could guess with the other one.

0:14:490:14:52

I think I am going to have to go with Millennium Falcon

0:14:520:14:55

-and Star Wars.

-OK, Star Wars says Sophie for Millennium Falcon.

0:14:550:14:59

There is your red line.

0:14:590:15:00

Let's see if you can get below that with Star Wars.

0:15:000:15:03

SOME LAUGHTER

0:15:030:15:04

It's right.

0:15:060:15:07

Look at that, 63.

0:15:090:15:10

It is a lot.

0:15:110:15:12

It is a lot lower than it might have been, actually, for Star Wars.

0:15:140:15:17

The game is not yet over.

0:15:170:15:18

Yeah, how has that only scored 63?

0:15:180:15:20

Amazing isn't it? It is a very teary occasion when it makes its

0:15:200:15:24

reappearance in The Force Awakens.

0:15:240:15:25

-Is it?

-The Millennium Falcon.

0:15:250:15:27

Rather lovely. Like our childhoods coming back to life.

0:15:270:15:30

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:15:310:15:33

Now, Robert, remind us what you do, Robert.

0:15:330:15:36

So I'm a merchandiser

0:15:360:15:37

for an electronics retailer.

0:15:370:15:39

Indeed, but you belong to not one but two dramatic groups.

0:15:390:15:44

-I do.

-One of which does serious drama,

0:15:440:15:46

the other of which puts on musicals

0:15:460:15:48

and we gather you are preparing for a musical next year already.

0:15:480:15:52

What about the serious drama group?

0:15:520:15:53

I say serious drama, we mainly do comedies.

0:15:530:15:56

Do you all turn up in black polo necks?

0:15:570:15:59

-No.

-Not all the time. So it's not that serious.

0:16:010:16:03

It's not that serious at all.

0:16:030:16:05

OK, we can come up a couple of notches from that.

0:16:050:16:08

Comedy is my favourite because I just love to laugh.

0:16:080:16:10

Good stuff. There you are on 62. We have a game on our hands here.

0:16:100:16:14

You have to score 87 or less.

0:16:140:16:16

Would you like to talk us through the board?

0:16:160:16:18

TARDIS I would say would be Doctor Who.

0:16:190:16:22

Light Cycle, don't know.

0:16:220:16:25

Cloudbase, if I was going to choose

0:16:250:16:27

I would say maybe the Jetsons or something.

0:16:270:16:30

But I think I'm going to try Ecto 1

0:16:300:16:33

and say Ghostbusters.

0:16:330:16:35

Ecto 1, Ghostbusters.

0:16:350:16:37

That's earning you a beautiful parallel nod there

0:16:370:16:40

on the fourth podium from Leanne and David. Ghostbusters.

0:16:400:16:44

Ecto 1, let's see if that's right. There is your red line.

0:16:440:16:46

Get below that with Ecto 1 and you're into the next round.

0:16:460:16:49

How many people said it?

0:16:490:16:50

It's right and you're through. Look at that.

0:16:530:16:55

23.

0:16:590:17:00

85 is your total.

0:17:020:17:03

Through you go to Round Two.

0:17:030:17:05

Very well played. In the original film,

0:17:050:17:07

it's a 1950s Cadillac and in the reboot it's a 1980s Cadillac.

0:17:070:17:12

It is quite nice. A nice little echo.

0:17:120:17:14

Ecto. SOME LAUGHTER

0:17:140:17:16

The TARDIS. Very, very, very big score as you can imagine.

0:17:160:17:20

Doctor Who is right. 96 points.

0:17:200:17:23

-Bigger than Star Wars.

-I know.

0:17:230:17:24

Much bigger. Bigger than Harry Potter, bigger than all of them.

0:17:240:17:28

Light Cycle is from Tron,

0:17:280:17:31

which would have scored 11 points.

0:17:310:17:33

And Cloudbase is the best answer on the board.

0:17:330:17:35

Eight points if you said Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons.

0:17:350:17:38

-Very well played.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:17:380:17:40

At the end of our first round the pair we have to say goodbye to

0:17:400:17:43

with the high score of 150, I'm afraid,

0:17:430:17:45

Sophie and Charlotte, it is you.

0:17:450:17:46

It was Round One last time, it's Round One this time.

0:17:460:17:49

Far too soon on both occasions to be sending you home.

0:17:490:17:51

Thank you so much playing, Sophie and Charlotte.

0:17:510:17:54

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

0:17:580:18:01

Very well done, everyone,

0:18:060:18:07

We've made it through Round One however you will have noticed,

0:18:070:18:10

I suspect, that one of our pairs has disappeared.

0:18:100:18:13

This will happen again at the end of this round,

0:18:130:18:15

I have to warn you. I don't know which pair it's going to be.

0:18:150:18:17

You all played very well. Best of luck to all three pairs.

0:18:170:18:19

Our category for Round Two today is...

0:18:190:18:22

Can you all decide in your pairs

0:18:250:18:26

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

0:18:260:18:28

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

0:18:280:18:31

OK, and the question concerns...

0:18:340:18:38

-Richard.

-Xander is about to show you the names of six countries.

0:18:400:18:43

We're looking for any other country that shows a land border

0:18:430:18:46

with one of these countries, please.

0:18:460:18:47

As always by country we mean a sovereign state that is a member

0:18:470:18:50

-of the UN in its own right.

-OK, thank you, Richard.

0:18:500:18:53

As Richard just mention we're going to put a list of six countries up on

0:18:530:18:56

the board. They will stay on the board for the entire round.

0:18:560:18:59

Let's find out what those countries are.

0:18:590:19:01

So we are looking for any country that shares a land border

0:19:130:19:16

with any one of these countries on the board.

0:19:160:19:20

OK. Robert.

0:19:200:19:22

I'll say Germany.

0:19:240:19:26

Germany, says Robert.

0:19:260:19:27

Let's see if that's right,

0:19:270:19:29

let's see how many of our 100 people went for Germany.

0:19:290:19:34

50.

0:19:370:19:39

50. Nice middling score there for Germany.

0:19:390:19:44

Yeah, very much in the TARDIS of this round, I think, Germany,

0:19:440:19:46

-bordering Switzerland.

-There we are, thank you very much indeed.

0:19:460:19:50

-Vicki.

-Hi.

0:19:500:19:52

Now...

0:19:520:19:53

Let's say Croatia.

0:19:550:19:58

Croatia, says Vicki.

0:19:580:19:59

Let's see if that's right,

0:19:590:20:01

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

0:20:010:20:03

It's right.

0:20:060:20:07

50 is our only score

0:20:090:20:10

and you pass that comfortably there.

0:20:100:20:12

Very well done indeed.

0:20:120:20:13

18...

0:20:130:20:15

for Croatia.

0:20:150:20:16

Well done, Vicki. 314 km of border between Croatia and Serbia.

0:20:180:20:23

Thank you, Richard. Now, then, Leanne.

0:20:230:20:26

I'm not very good at geography either.

0:20:260:20:28

I'm going to just throw one out there as a guess and say Azerbaijan.

0:20:290:20:33

Azerbaijan says Leanne.

0:20:330:20:34

Let's see if that's right,

0:20:340:20:36

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

0:20:360:20:38

Bad luck, Leanne.

0:20:430:20:44

I'm afraid not Azerbaijan.

0:20:440:20:46

That scores you 100 points.

0:20:460:20:48

Yeah, sorry, not Azerbaijan.

0:20:480:20:50

It's just a slightly to the north of South Africa.

0:20:500:20:52

LAUGHTER

0:20:520:20:54

Thank you very much. We're halfway through the round.

0:20:540:20:56

Let's take a quick look at those scores.

0:20:560:20:58

18, the best score of the pass.

0:20:580:21:00

Vicki and George,

0:21:000:21:01

once again in pole position.

0:21:010:21:02

Then up to 50 is where we find Robert and Ann.

0:21:020:21:05

Up to 100 is where we find Leanne and David.

0:21:050:21:07

Who knows what's going to happen on the next pass, David?

0:21:070:21:10

But we definitely need a low score.

0:21:100:21:11

So very, very best of luck with that.

0:21:110:21:13

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

0:21:130:21:15

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:150:21:17

OK. David, there you are, our high-scorers.

0:21:210:21:24

-Yeah.

-We need the name of a very, very low-scoring country

0:21:240:21:27

that shares a land border with any of these countries.

0:21:270:21:31

I want to guess...

0:21:310:21:33

I want to really go for one, but...

0:21:330:21:35

..I don't want to get the Mick taken out of me at work, so...

0:21:370:21:39

I'm going to go with Guyana

0:21:400:21:42

for Suriname.

0:21:420:21:44

Guyana, says David.

0:21:440:21:46

Guyana. There's no red line for you,

0:21:460:21:48

because you're the high-scorers.

0:21:480:21:50

Let's see how far down the column we get with Guyana.

0:21:500:21:52

It's right.

0:21:550:21:56

Now, our lowest score so far is 18,

0:21:580:22:01

which you pass very comfortably indeed!

0:22:010:22:05

105 is your total.

0:22:050:22:06

That's a wonderful score there, David.

0:22:060:22:08

Is it enough, I wonder, to keep you in the game?

0:22:080:22:11

Great answer, David. Yes, to the west of Suriname.

0:22:110:22:13

It's got over 800km of border.

0:22:130:22:16

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:22:160:22:18

Now then, George.

0:22:180:22:20

George, there you are on 18.

0:22:200:22:22

86 or less keeps you in the game.

0:22:220:22:25

Geography ain't my strong point either, so...

0:22:250:22:27

I'll give it a go. I'll say Belgium.

0:22:290:22:31

Belgium, says George.

0:22:310:22:33

Belgium. Here is your red line.

0:22:330:22:35

Get below that with Belgium and you're through to the next round.

0:22:350:22:38

How many people said Belgium?

0:22:380:22:39

Oh, bad luck.

0:22:420:22:43

I'm afraid not Belgium.

0:22:450:22:46

An incorrect answer,

0:22:460:22:47

which scores you 100 points,

0:22:470:22:48

takes your total up to 118.

0:22:480:22:50

David and Leanne, back in the game.

0:22:500:22:52

Yeah, it doesn't border any of those.

0:22:530:22:55

It doesn't even border Azerbaijan, Belgium, I'm afraid. So, incorrect.

0:22:550:22:58

Thanks very much indeed. Now then, Ann.

0:22:580:23:00

Your target is 67 or less.

0:23:010:23:04

My geography is sort of all over the place at the moment.

0:23:070:23:09

Well, geography is.

0:23:090:23:10

LAUGHTER

0:23:100:23:11

Oh, I'm sort of thinking

0:23:140:23:16

about Suriname.

0:23:160:23:18

In my thoughts, I think it's in Central America,

0:23:180:23:21

but perhaps it isn't.

0:23:210:23:23

I'm now doubting myself.

0:23:230:23:25

Oh, dear.

0:23:260:23:29

I'm going to go Italy.

0:23:290:23:31

Italy, says Ann.

0:23:320:23:33

Now, here is your red line.

0:23:330:23:35

It could be higher,

0:23:370:23:39

but Italy is what you're going for.

0:23:390:23:41

Let's see if it's good enough to get you into the head-to-head

0:23:410:23:43

and how many of our 100 people said Italy.

0:23:430:23:46

You've done it.

0:23:510:23:52

Look at that.

0:23:520:23:53

Oh, with room to spare.

0:23:530:23:54

Look at that. 33. Very well done indeed.

0:23:540:23:56

Well judged.

0:23:560:23:58

83 is your total.

0:23:580:24:00

Well done, Ann.

0:24:000:24:01

We've had better rounds than that, to be fair, haven't we, in the past?

0:24:010:24:04

Now, our 100 did rather well.

0:24:040:24:06

There's only one pointless answer in the whole lot.

0:24:060:24:09

One pointless answer of any country that borders any of these,

0:24:090:24:11

and it's proper, classic, old-school pointless.

0:24:110:24:15

The smallest land border that Sudan shares is with...

0:24:150:24:19

-Central African Republic.

-Central African Republic.

0:24:190:24:21

-Oh, that's lovely.

-And it's a pointless answer.

0:24:210:24:23

It hasn't been a pointless answer for a long time,

0:24:230:24:25

-Central African Republic.

-How nice.

-Lovely to have it back.

0:24:250:24:28

Let's go through these countries.

0:24:280:24:29

Switzerland, one low score, would've been Liechtenstein,

0:24:290:24:32

which would have scored three points.

0:24:320:24:34

Austria would have got you 34.

0:24:340:24:35

Suriname, apart from Guyana, has only got one other border

0:24:350:24:38

and that's Brazil, which would've scored four points.

0:24:380:24:41

Sudan, Central African Republic.

0:24:410:24:43

Chad, Eritrea and Libya would have scored you one.

0:24:430:24:45

South Sudan would've scored you eight.

0:24:450:24:47

Ethiopia, 10 and Egypt 19.

0:24:470:24:49

South Africa, some low scorers.

0:24:490:24:51

Mozambique two, Swaziland and Lesotho three.

0:24:510:24:55

Namibia eight, Botswana nine and Zimbabwe ten.

0:24:550:24:59

Serbia, some low scorers as well.

0:24:590:25:01

Hungary three, Macedonia four, Bulgaria and Romania five.

0:25:010:25:04

Bosnia and Herzegovina nine.

0:25:040:25:06

Montenegro 11.

0:25:060:25:08

Saudi Arabia, Qatar would have scored you four, Jordan seven,

0:25:080:25:11

Oman eight.

0:25:110:25:12

UAE and Yemen 12, Iraq 14 and Kuwait 16.

0:25:120:25:16

Thank you very much, indeed, Richard.

0:25:160:25:18

At the end of our second round,

0:25:180:25:19

the pair we have to say goodbye to, with their high score of 118,

0:25:190:25:22

our low-scoring champions in the first round,

0:25:220:25:24

in fact, halfway through this round, even, our low scorers,

0:25:240:25:27

it's Vicki and George, I'm afraid.

0:25:270:25:29

We say goodbye at this point.

0:25:290:25:30

However, on the strength

0:25:300:25:32

of your performance so far,

0:25:320:25:33

I reckon you'll go much further next time we see you.

0:25:330:25:36

We look forward to that very much.

0:25:360:25:37

In the meantime, thank you so much, Vicki and George.

0:25:370:25:40

But for the remaining two pairs, it's now time for our head-to-head.

0:25:430:25:46

Well, congratulations to Ann and Robert, Leanne and David.

0:25:510:25:53

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

0:25:530:25:56

for our jackpot, which currently stands at £2,000.

0:25:560:26:00

Well, we've reached the head-to-head, which means you're now

0:26:030:26:05

allowed to confer. First pair to win two questions will be playing for

0:26:050:26:08

that jackpot. Who knows what's going to happen?

0:26:080:26:11

An England-Scotland head-to-head, very exciting indeed.

0:26:110:26:14

Best of luck to both pairs. Let's play it.

0:26:140:26:16

Here is your first question. And it concerns...

0:26:220:26:26

-Richard.

-Yes, we'll show you five pictures now of species of fish.

0:26:290:26:32

We're also going to give you alternate letters of their names,

0:26:320:26:35

but can you tell us what they are, please?

0:26:350:26:37

Thank you very much. Let's reveal our five fish and here they come.

0:26:370:26:40

We have got...

0:26:400:26:41

There you are. Five fish.

0:27:100:27:12

Ann and Robert, you're our low scorers, so you'll go first.

0:27:120:27:15

THEY CONFER

0:27:150:27:17

OK, I think we're going to go with A,

0:27:190:27:21

and rainbow fish.

0:27:210:27:22

Rainbow fish, say Ann and Robert for A.

0:27:220:27:24

Now, Leanne and David, do you fancy talking us through that board?

0:27:240:27:28

HE SCOFFS

0:27:280:27:29

LAUGHTER

0:27:290:27:30

-Aye...

-There's something... B is a black something trout.

0:27:300:27:36

Yeah. Maybe not a trout, no, see that second letter...

0:27:360:27:39

Right enough.

0:27:390:27:40

Fish, I'm not so good on, funnily enough.

0:27:400:27:43

E is sawfish.

0:27:430:27:44

D might be guppy, but I didn't think a guppy looked like that.

0:27:440:27:47

So I think we'll just... We'll go with E and sawfish.

0:27:470:27:50

OK, sawfish.

0:27:500:27:52

So we have rainbow fish and sawfish.

0:27:520:27:54

Ann and Robert said rainbow fish for A.

0:27:540:27:56

Let's see if that's right,

0:27:560:27:57

let's see how many of our 100 people got rainbow fish.

0:27:570:27:59

Rainbow fish is right.

0:28:030:28:04

34.

0:28:070:28:09

Now then, Leanne and David meanwhile

0:28:120:28:14

have gone for sawfish for E.

0:28:140:28:16

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

0:28:160:28:20

It's right.

0:28:230:28:24

Oh, look at that!

0:28:280:28:29

33 for sawfish! Very well done indeed.

0:28:290:28:32

I thought it'd be close,

0:28:320:28:34

I didn't realise it was going to be that close.

0:28:340:28:36

Very well done, Leanne and David. After one question, you are up 1-0.

0:28:360:28:39

Shall we take a little look at that sawfish for a minute?

0:28:390:28:41

What is that all about?

0:28:410:28:43

That's, like, crazy.

0:28:430:28:45

Does it ever use it, sort of swimming backwards and forwards,

0:28:450:28:47

to maybe clear a path?

0:28:470:28:49

It does use it as a tool.

0:28:490:28:51

It uses it to dig and as a weapon,

0:28:510:28:52

but it literally looks like a chainsaw, doesn't it?

0:28:520:28:55

-It really does.

-Isn't that extraordinary?

0:28:550:28:57

I wonder if it gets self-conscious.

0:28:570:28:59

-Or stuck!

-That's what I worry...

0:28:590:29:00

Oh, maybe, I don't know. I do worry...

0:29:000:29:03

Excuse me, sorry, everybody, sorry.

0:29:030:29:06

Now, let's fill in the rest of these, shall we?

0:29:070:29:10

We'll leave B for a moment, because it's the best answer.

0:29:100:29:12

D, you're quite right, is guppy. But a very big scorer.

0:29:120:29:15

Would have scored you 69 points.

0:29:150:29:17

C is the sunfish.

0:29:170:29:20

I'm going to say the make-up hasn't

0:29:200:29:22

been expertly applied there, has it?

0:29:220:29:25

Perhaps that's look they go for.

0:29:250:29:27

Now, B is the best answer,

0:29:270:29:28

it's one of those ones where you have to fill the gaps in.

0:29:280:29:30

Black is absolutely right.

0:29:300:29:32

Turbot I'm guessing for the last one.

0:29:320:29:34

So many people at home would've said trout because your brain

0:29:340:29:37

does that to you. So black something turbot.

0:29:370:29:39

It's very well camouflaged.

0:29:390:29:41

It's amazing, isn't it?

0:29:410:29:42

-Black...

-Have a think about it.

0:29:420:29:45

Where does it live?

0:29:450:29:46

Oh, the Black Sea.

0:29:470:29:49

It's a Black Sea turbot.

0:29:490:29:50

That would've scored you two points,

0:29:500:29:52

best answer on the board.

0:29:520:29:53

Thank you, Richard.

0:29:530:29:54

Here comes your second question.

0:29:540:29:55

Now then, Ann and Robert, I'm getting deja vu.

0:29:550:29:59

This happened last time,

0:29:590:30:00

but you have to win this question to stay in the game,

0:30:000:30:03

so very, very best of luck.

0:30:030:30:04

Leanne and David get to answer it first, though.

0:30:040:30:06

Let's see what happens. Our second question is all about...

0:30:060:30:10

-Skiing, Richard.

-Yes, more alternate letters this one, actually.

0:30:130:30:15

We'll show you five terms you might come across if you were skiing, but

0:30:150:30:18

we've missed out alternate letters. Can you fill them in, please?

0:30:180:30:21

Thank you very much indeed.

0:30:210:30:22

Let's reveal our five skiing terms and here they come.

0:30:220:30:25

We've got...

0:30:250:30:27

So, Leanne and David, you will go first.

0:30:460:30:48

You don't have any?

0:30:480:30:50

-No.

-Hmm.

0:30:500:30:51

Struggling a little bit here.

0:30:510:30:52

We know two. Could maybe guess

0:30:520:30:57

one of them. I think we'll go with the middle one,

0:30:570:31:01

which is off-piste.

0:31:010:31:03

Off-piste say Leanne and David.

0:31:030:31:06

Now then, Ann and Robert, what would you like to go for?

0:31:060:31:09

We're not sure on the top one.

0:31:100:31:12

Apres-ski is the bottom one,

0:31:130:31:15

but we're actually going to go for

0:31:150:31:17

the snowplough.

0:31:170:31:19

Snowplough say Ann and Robert.

0:31:190:31:21

Snowplough. So we have off-piste and snowplough.

0:31:210:31:23

Leanne and David said off-piste.

0:31:230:31:25

Let's see if that's right,

0:31:250:31:26

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

0:31:260:31:29

59.

0:31:340:31:35

59 for off-piste. Ann and Robert have gone for snowplough

0:31:380:31:41

for the next one down. Let's see if that's right,

0:31:410:31:43

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

0:31:430:31:45

It's right.

0:31:480:31:49

Very well done, Ann and Robert.

0:31:510:31:52

No repeat of last time.

0:31:520:31:54

14, you're back in the game.

0:31:550:31:57

After two questions, it's 1-1.

0:31:570:31:59

-Very well played.

-Well played.

0:31:590:32:01

Let's fill in the rest of these, shall we?

0:32:010:32:03

We'll start at the bottom.

0:32:030:32:05

That's apres-ski.

0:32:050:32:06

Would have scored you 32 points.

0:32:060:32:08

Apres-ski, of course, it's the term

0:32:080:32:09

they use for recycling yoghurt pots.

0:32:090:32:12

The top one?

0:32:120:32:14

-Slalom.

-Slalom. Yes.

0:32:140:32:17

That would have scored you 43.

0:32:170:32:19

And the next one, it's not bottom left or bottom lift.

0:32:190:32:22

-It's button lift.

-Button lift, yeah.

0:32:220:32:24

That would have scored you two points.

0:32:240:32:26

-Best answer on the board.

-Thank you very much, Richard.

0:32:260:32:29

OK, it all comes down to the third and final question.

0:32:290:32:31

Whoever wins this one goes through to the final and plays for that

0:32:310:32:34

jackpot. Best of luck to both pairs.

0:32:340:32:35

Our third question is all about...

0:32:350:32:38

SOME LAUGHTER

0:32:380:32:39

-Richard.

-Yeah, five clues now to facts about Jonathan Ross.

0:32:410:32:43

Whoever gives us the most obscure answer is going on to play

0:32:430:32:46

-for that jackpot.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:32:460:32:47

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

0:32:470:32:50

I'll read those again.

0:33:080:33:09

Ann and Robert will go first.

0:33:260:33:29

OK. Yeah, OK, we're going to go with

0:33:310:33:33

the woman who he replaced as host as

0:33:330:33:36

-Claudia Winkleman.

-Claudia Winkleman for the bottom one.

0:33:360:33:39

Claudia Winkleman. Now then, Leanne and David,

0:33:390:33:42

talk us through that board.

0:33:420:33:43

-Do you think the '60s?

-I think so.

0:33:430:33:46

Can't say Jonathan Ross is someone who I know an awful lot about.

0:33:460:33:51

I think it's Question Of Sport for the BBC comedy,

0:33:520:33:55

but we're not going to go with that one,

0:33:550:33:57

so I think we're going to guess the decade and say the 1960s.

0:33:570:34:00

OK, the 1960s, the decade he was born in.

0:34:000:34:02

So, we have Claudia Winkleman and the 1960s.

0:34:020:34:05

Ann and Robert said Claudia Winkleman.

0:34:050:34:06

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

0:34:060:34:09

It's right.

0:34:120:34:13

That's a good answer.

0:34:180:34:19

19, very well done indeed, Ann and Robert.

0:34:190:34:21

19 for Claudia Winkleman.

0:34:210:34:22

David and Leanne, meanwhile, have opted for the '60s,

0:34:240:34:28

the decade in which Jonathan Ross was born.

0:34:280:34:30

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

0:34:300:34:33

It's right.

0:34:360:34:37

At least it's right.

0:34:370:34:38

Oh, there we are. 39 for that.

0:34:400:34:43

Which means, very well done,

0:34:430:34:44

at the second time of asking, Ann and Robert, after three questions,

0:34:440:34:48

you are through to the final, 2-1.

0:34:480:34:50

Yeah, very well done. Born in 1960, Jonathan Ross.

0:34:500:34:53

We'll fill in the rest of these.

0:34:530:34:54

His Channel 4 chat show was The Last Resort.

0:34:540:34:56

That would have scored you four points.

0:34:560:34:58

The screenwriter is the very talented, very lovely Jane Goldman.

0:34:580:35:02

She would have scored you ten points.

0:35:020:35:03

And the comedy sports show was They Think It's All Over.

0:35:030:35:07

Yeah. And that would have scored you 11.

0:35:070:35:09

Thanks very much indeed, Richard. The pair leaving us at the end of

0:35:090:35:12

the head-to-head round, I'm afraid, Leanne and David, it is you.

0:35:120:35:14

But we see you again next time, so all is not lost.

0:35:140:35:17

I'm sure you'll do just as well then if not better.

0:35:170:35:19

But meantime, thanks very much for playing, Leanne and David.

0:35:190:35:24

But for Ann and Robert, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:240:35:27

Well done, Ann and Robert, you've seen off all the competition

0:35:310:35:34

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:340:35:37

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:35:420:35:45

At the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £2,000.

0:35:450:35:48

We can relax a little bit now.

0:35:520:35:54

Second time round, second time round,

0:35:550:35:57

you made it through the head-to-head.

0:35:570:35:59

Came from behind, 1-0 down,

0:35:590:36:00

to triumph, 2-1.

0:36:000:36:02

Very exciting indeed. I think with that kind of momentum,

0:36:020:36:05

I think we can expect

0:36:050:36:06

something exciting to happen in this last round,

0:36:060:36:08

-don't you think?

-I hope so, yes.

-Fingers crossed.

-Oh, I hope so.

0:36:080:36:11

What would you like to see come up on that board?

0:36:110:36:13

You know what it's like in this round.

0:36:130:36:15

I'd want anything on Friends, the TV show.

0:36:150:36:18

Got that covered.

0:36:180:36:19

Yeah. Anything on Knots Landing.

0:36:190:36:22

Yep.

0:36:220:36:23

Wow, Friends and Knots Landing.

0:36:230:36:26

-It could happen.

-Anything other than TV, we're probably useless.

0:36:260:36:30

OK, well, let's find out what today's selection looks like.

0:36:300:36:33

Let's hope there's something on there you like the look of.

0:36:330:36:36

-Right...

-The Great Offices Of State.

0:36:460:36:49

-I know nothing about post-punk at all.

-Nope.

0:36:490:36:52

The Golden Raspberry Award Winners, we could go for that.

0:36:520:36:55

We could probably go for that cos

0:36:550:36:56

-it's naming actors and actresses, hopefully.

-Hopefully, yeah.

0:36:560:36:59

Yeah, we'll go for The Golden Raspberry Award Winners.

0:36:590:37:02

OK, Golden Raspberries it is.

0:37:020:37:04

OK, very best of luck. The Golden Raspberry,

0:37:040:37:06

as regular viewers of the show know, it's the anti-Oscars.

0:37:060:37:08

It's the Oscars for the worst films of the year.

0:37:080:37:11

We're looking for any of the following, please.

0:37:110:37:13

We're looking for anyone

0:37:130:37:14

who has won a worst actor award at the Golden Raspberries

0:37:140:37:17

from 1980 all the way through to the 2016 awards.

0:37:170:37:20

Looking for anyone who's won worst actress

0:37:200:37:22

at the Golden Raspberries or we're looking for anyone

0:37:220:37:24

who's the worst director at the Golden Raspberries.

0:37:240:37:27

So from 1980 to the 2016 awards,

0:37:270:37:29

we are looking for worst actor, worst actress or worst director.

0:37:290:37:32

-Very best of luck.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:37:320:37:34

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

0:37:340:37:38

and all you need to win that jackpot is for just one to be pointless.

0:37:380:37:40

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

-Perfect.

-Yes.

0:37:400:37:43

Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:37:430:37:45

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:37:450:37:48

I have no idea on worst directors, but...

0:37:480:37:51

Worst actresses, I would say the one in Speed.

0:37:510:37:56

-Oh, Sandra Bullock.

-I think she's won one.

0:37:560:37:58

She could be. What about someone like Russell Crowe?

0:37:580:38:00

I mean, he's had some really good films, but, you know...

0:38:000:38:03

there could be some that haven't been so good.

0:38:030:38:05

-It's the odd ones.

-It's the odd ones, isn't it?

0:38:050:38:07

Good actors that have got a Raspberry.

0:38:070:38:09

-Actors...

-Worst directors...

0:38:110:38:13

Brad Pitt? I don't know.

0:38:130:38:16

I mean, I could say directors, there could be, erm...

0:38:160:38:20

You know, David Lean.

0:38:200:38:21

-That's going back.

-Never heard of him. Sounds good.

0:38:220:38:26

So, we're going to say... We'll go with Russell Crowe perhaps

0:38:260:38:29

-and you said...

-Sandra Bullock.

-..Sandra Bullock. And...

0:38:290:38:34

What about something random like Dolly Parton?

0:38:340:38:37

Ten seconds left.

0:38:370:38:38

-Random.

-Yeah, OK.

0:38:380:38:40

We've only got... Yeah, let's go Dolly Parton.

0:38:400:38:42

-Fine. OK.

-Yeah.

0:38:420:38:44

OK, that is your time up.

0:38:460:38:48

Let's have your three answers.

0:38:480:38:50

Worst actors, we'll go with Russell Crowe.

0:38:500:38:52

-Russell Crowe.

-Worst actresses, we'll go with Sandra Bullock.

0:38:520:38:56

-Sandra Bullock.

-And Dolly Parton.

0:38:560:38:58

And Dolly Parton. Now, of those three,

0:38:580:39:00

which is your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:39:000:39:03

-Sandra Bullock.

-Yeah.

0:39:030:39:04

OK, Sandra Bullock goes last.

0:39:040:39:06

Least likely to be pointless?

0:39:060:39:07

-Dolly Parton.

-Dolly Parton we'll put first and

0:39:080:39:11

Russell Crowe goes in the middle.

0:39:110:39:12

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

0:39:120:39:15

And here they are.

0:39:150:39:17

We have got Dolly Parton,

0:39:170:39:19

we've got Russell Crowe and we have got Sandra Bullock.

0:39:190:39:21

Well, very best of luck.

0:39:210:39:23

Three good answers there and a nice random one you chose

0:39:230:39:25

at the last minute. Who knows? That might be a perfect answer.

0:39:250:39:28

What would you do if you were to win today's jackpot of £2,000?

0:39:280:39:32

I like travelling, so...

0:39:320:39:35

I think somewhere in Europe.

0:39:350:39:37

I've never been to Barcelona, so I think I'd like to go there.

0:39:370:39:40

Lovely. Oh, that's a lovely thing to do.

0:39:400:39:42

-Robert, how about you?

-Well, for my 21st birthday,

0:39:420:39:46

my sister surprised me with a trip to New York and a helicopter ride

0:39:460:39:49

around New York, so I think I'd like to put the money towards

0:39:490:39:51

repaying the favour and take her on a helicopter ride round Las Vegas.

0:39:510:39:55

Very nice indeed.

0:39:550:39:57

OK, well, best of luck.

0:39:570:39:58

Three good answers, as I say. Let's see if they're right.

0:39:580:40:01

Let's hope one of them's pointless. Your first answer was Dolly Parton.

0:40:010:40:04

In this case, we were looking for any worst actress award

0:40:040:40:06

at the Raspberries. For £2,000,

0:40:060:40:09

let's find out how many people said Dolly Parton.

0:40:090:40:12

Is it pointless?

0:40:120:40:13

No.

0:40:170:40:18

But who knows? You never know with Golden Raspberries,

0:40:190:40:22

it could easily have been a brilliant answer, that.

0:40:220:40:24

But I'm afraid an incorrect answer in this case.

0:40:240:40:26

So, we move onto your next answer which was Russell Crowe.

0:40:260:40:28

In this case, we were looking for the worst actor winners

0:40:280:40:30

at the Golden Raspberries. If it is right and if it is pointless,

0:40:300:40:33

it'll win you £2,000. Let's see how many people said Russell Crowe.

0:40:330:40:37

Oh, no! I'm afraid another incorrect answer,

0:40:400:40:43

which means everything is now riding on your third and final answer,

0:40:430:40:46

Sandra Bullock. Now, I think both of you remember that she did win,

0:40:460:40:49

-didn't she...

-Yeah, I think she did.

0:40:490:40:50

..a worst actress award at the Golden Raspberries?

0:40:500:40:52

Let's hope no-one else remembered that.

0:40:520:40:54

It has to be pointless for you to win that jackpot of £2,000.

0:40:540:40:58

Let's see how many of our 100 people named Sandra Bullock.

0:40:580:41:00

There we are, it's a correct answer.

0:41:040:41:06

Dolly Parton was incorrect.

0:41:060:41:07

Russell Crowe was incorrect,

0:41:070:41:08

but Sandra Bullock is absolutely on the money.

0:41:080:41:10

Down we go through the 30s,

0:41:100:41:12

into the 20s,

0:41:120:41:13

into the teens.

0:41:130:41:14

Down it goes, still...

0:41:140:41:15

Oh, 10.

0:41:150:41:17

Not bad at all.

0:41:170:41:18

I'm going to say, though,

0:41:210:41:22

I think those were very tough categories there

0:41:220:41:24

for you to choose from and you went for one you thought you could have

0:41:240:41:27

a good crack at and you did. But I'm afraid you didn't find

0:41:270:41:30

that all-important pointless answer so I'm afraid you don't win

0:41:300:41:33

today's jackpot of £2,000. That will roll over onto the next show.

0:41:330:41:36

But it's been great having you here and the crucial thing is

0:41:360:41:38

you get to take home a Pointless trophy each,

0:41:380:41:40

so very, very well done indeed, Ann and Robert.

0:41:400:41:43

Yeah, very brave attempt. Russell Crowe has been nominated actually,

0:41:460:41:49

but never won one, he'll be pleased to hear.

0:41:490:41:51

Lots of big names on all the lists here.

0:41:510:41:53

Let's take a look first at the worst actors.

0:41:530:41:56

Donald Trump, believe it or not, won one.

0:41:560:41:59

John Travolta for Battlefield Earth.

0:41:590:42:02

Pierce Brosnan for Mamma Mia.

0:42:020:42:03

Sylvester Stallone, he's won a number of times, Sylvester Stallone.

0:42:030:42:06

In fact, everyone's a pointless answer there

0:42:060:42:08

apart from Eddie Murphy, William Shatner, Adam Sandler,

0:42:080:42:11

Jamie Dornan, who won for 50 Shades,

0:42:110:42:13

Will Smith, Kevin Costner and Ben Affleck.

0:42:130:42:16

Worst actresses now.

0:42:160:42:18

Demi Moore, Denise Richards,

0:42:180:42:20

Eddie Murphy won a worst actress when he played a woman.

0:42:200:42:22

Adam Sandler also won a worst actress.

0:42:220:42:24

Lindsay Lohan. Brigitte Nielsen, Britney Spears, Daryl Hannah,

0:42:240:42:28

Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Kim Cattrall.

0:42:280:42:30

All the cast of Sex And The City 2, all the four main women,

0:42:300:42:32

they won jointly, as did all the Spice Girls for Spice World.

0:42:320:42:36

They all won jointly as well and they were all pointless answers,

0:42:360:42:38

every single one of them. And worst directors.

0:42:380:42:41

Gus Van Sant for his shot-for-shot remake of Psycho.

0:42:410:42:44

Guy Ritchie for Swept Away.

0:42:440:42:45

Michael Cimino for Heaven's Gate.

0:42:450:42:47

And William Shatner for Star Trek V.

0:42:470:42:50

Very well done if you got any of those at home

0:42:500:42:52

and it was a fun category to go for, so thank you very much.

0:42:520:42:55

Thank you, Richard, and thank you, Ann and Robert,

0:42:550:42:58

who sadly didn't win our jackpot today which means it rolls over

0:42:580:43:00

onto the next show when we will be playing for £3,000.

0:43:000:43:04

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:43:070:43:09

Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard...

0:43:090:43:11

-Goodbye.

-..and it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.
