APPLAUSE

0:00:170:00:19

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

0:00:210:00:24

the show where we are always striving to find the most obscure answers.

0:00:240:00:28

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:30

APPLAUSE

0:00:300:00:32

And couple number one.

0:00:340:00:35

-Hi, I'm Steve, this is Oktiva, we're from Newcastle.

-Hello.

0:00:350:00:39

-Couple number two.

-Hi, I'm Leanne, and this is my husband, David,

0:00:390:00:41

-and we're from Livingston.

-Couple number three.

0:00:410:00:44

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

0:00:440:00:46

-and we're from Barnsley.

-And finally, couple number four.

0:00:460:00:50

Hi, my name is Oli, this is my partner, Naomi.

0:00:500:00:52

-Coming in from Dorset.

-And these are today's contestants.

0:00:520:00:55

APPLAUSE

0:00:550:00:57

Thanks very much, all of you. A warm welcome to the show, great to have you here.

0:00:570:01:00

We'll get to chat to each of you throughout the show as it goes along,

0:01:000:01:03

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

0:01:030:01:06

The keystone in our Keystone Cops, it's my Pointless friend, it's Richard.

0:01:060:01:10

-Hiya. Hey, everybody.

-APPLAUSE

0:01:100:01:13

Good afternoon.

0:01:130:01:14

-Good afternoon to you, sir.

-Good afternoon.

-How are you?

0:01:150:01:18

-I'm very well, thank you.

-That's good.

0:01:180:01:20

We've got two good returning pairs from the last show.

0:01:200:01:23

They did very well, both pairs.

0:01:230:01:24

Leanne and David, who got through to the head-to-head, and George

0:01:240:01:27

and Vicki, who did very well in Round One, less well in Round Two.

0:01:270:01:30

But I think they're both going to be tough to beat,

0:01:300:01:32

so tough for our newcomers.

0:01:320:01:35

But Round One, the sort of thing that people are always asking for.

0:01:350:01:38

-I think people will like it.

-Oh, good.

0:01:380:01:41

-I think good for all the family, Round One.

-OK.

0:01:410:01:44

I think it's the sort of round where kids can be adults.

0:01:440:01:48

Possibly.

0:01:480:01:50

-Our favourite...

-Depending on the quality of the adult.

-OK.

0:01:500:01:52

LAUGHTER Thank you very much indeed.

0:01:520:01:54

Now, Ann and Robert didn't win our jackpot last time, which means we add another £1,000 to that,

0:01:540:01:58

so today's jackpot starts off at £3,000.

0:01:580:02:01

There we are, building nicely.

0:02:010:02:03

APPLAUSE

0:02:030:02:05

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

0:02:050:02:09

APPLAUSE

0:02:090:02:11

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

0:02:130:02:16

each round will be eliminated. That's all you have to remember.

0:02:160:02:18

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

0:02:180:02:22

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

0:02:250:02:28

who's going to go second?

0:02:280:02:30

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

0:02:300:02:33

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:360:02:38

Excellent. Richard.

0:02:430:02:45

Yeah, on each board, we're going to show you seven sets of

0:02:450:02:47

characters from a Disney or Pixar film.

0:02:470:02:49

You just need to tell us the name of the film, please.

0:02:490:02:52

Seven on the first board, seven on the second.

0:02:520:02:54

-Let battle begin at home.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:02:540:02:58

So, let's reveal our first set of Disney or Pixar characters,

0:02:580:03:02

and here they are.

0:03:020:03:04

We have got...

0:03:040:03:05

I'm going to read those again.

0:03:250:03:27

There we are. Oktiva, a warm welcome to Pointless.

0:03:390:03:41

-It's great to have you here, from Newcastle?

-Yes.

0:03:410:03:44

-What keeps you busy in Newcastle, Oktiva?

-Being a mum to a ten-year-old son.

0:03:440:03:50

-Right.

-And I'm working.

-Very good indeed. What is your ten-year-old called?

-Ryan.

0:03:500:03:54

-Ryan. And Ryan will be watching now, won't he?

-I hope so.

-I hope so, Ryan.

0:03:540:03:59

Oh, maybe if you don't do well, you won't tell him you were here.

0:03:590:04:02

-Pretend you came down for a city break.

-He did ask me the other day.

0:04:020:04:05

"Mum, are you really sure you want to do it? I think you are going to embarrass myself."

0:04:050:04:09

You are never going to embarrass yourself, Oktiva. What are your hobbies?

0:04:090:04:13

-Well, I enjoy reading and travelling.

-OK, very good.

0:04:130:04:16

How are you feeling about Disney and Pixar films?

0:04:160:04:19

Not very confident, to be honest.

0:04:190:04:21

I think I'm going to have to go for the obvious one,

0:04:210:04:24

which is Olaf, Sven and Marshmallow.

0:04:240:04:27

-Frozen.

-Frozen, says Oktiva.

0:04:270:04:30

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

0:04:300:04:33

It's right.

0:04:360:04:38

38.

0:04:400:04:41

APPLAUSE

0:04:410:04:43

-38 for Frozen.

-Well done, Oktiva.

0:04:440:04:47

Now, Frozen's interesting because to a certain generation,

0:04:470:04:49

it's literally ubiquitous.

0:04:490:04:51

My kids are 15 and 17, so it was after my time,

0:04:510:04:54

so my Frozen knowledge, and I know some people would wish they

0:04:540:04:58

were me, I know nothing about it.

0:04:580:05:00

-Never seen it, never had to watch it.

-Do you know what...

0:05:000:05:02

-I hear it's great.

-It is good, it's a film of huge impact.

0:05:020:05:06

But, actually, Tangled's better.

0:05:060:05:10

-Funnier.

-Oh, really?

-Frozen...

0:05:100:05:12

The story just doesn't quite...

0:05:120:05:14

There's so many things to enjoy in it, you don't mind too much.

0:05:140:05:16

-But the story, it doesn't quite add up.

-Oh, never seen it.

0:05:160:05:20

Never seen it, and until I have grandchildren,

0:05:200:05:24

and give that a couple of years, please...

0:05:240:05:26

LAUGHTER

0:05:260:05:28

-..I never will.

-Yeah, there you go.

0:05:280:05:31

David, welcome back. From Livingston.

0:05:310:05:35

Remind us what you do, David.

0:05:350:05:36

I'm an account manager, I kind of travel around Europe.

0:05:360:05:39

-This is with a steel company.

-Yes, steel. Really exciting.

0:05:390:05:43

So, this is steel that is used for what in particular?

0:05:430:05:46

Mainly for the oil and gas industry,

0:05:460:05:48

so for offshore applications and so forth.

0:05:480:05:50

-So, pipes and things like that?

-Pipes, plates, tubulars.

-That's exciting.

0:05:500:05:55

-Really not.

-You get to go to the big oil and gas producers, then?

0:05:550:05:59

To an extent, yeah.

0:05:590:06:00

We go mainly to the kind of fabricators and so forth so,

0:06:000:06:02

so kind of the less glamorous parts of the industry, but still...

0:06:020:06:06

I still get to travel around.

0:06:060:06:08

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

0:06:080:06:10

Not a bad round, to be honest.

0:06:100:06:12

I'm going to go with Kala, Tantor and Terk, and that's Tarzan.

0:06:120:06:17

Tarzan, says David. Let's see if that's right.

0:06:170:06:19

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

0:06:190:06:21

It's right. 38 is our only score at this point.

0:06:230:06:26

Tarzan...passes 38. Down it goes.

0:06:260:06:29

Still going down...to 2!

0:06:290:06:31

Oh, David!

0:06:330:06:34

-Very well done.

-Very good answer.

0:06:380:06:40

Yeah, the trademark Tarzan yell in that film is provided

0:06:400:06:43

by Brian Blessed, cos he also plays... He plays the villain in

0:06:430:06:47

-the film, but he provided the Tarzan yell.

-Did he?

-Yeah.

0:06:470:06:50

-I bet he enjoyed that.

-I bet he enjoyed that. Oh!

0:06:500:06:54

I bet they booked him for an hour, and I bet after six hours,

0:06:540:06:57

they were just thinking, "Brian..."

0:06:570:06:59

"I think we've got it now, Brian."

0:06:590:07:00

-"We've probably got it now."

-What would he say?

0:07:000:07:02

-"Tell us another story, Brian."

-Yeah.

0:07:020:07:05

-What would he say?

-Yeah.

0:07:050:07:06

IMPERSONATING: I wonder if I might do one more.

0:07:060:07:09

LAUGHTER

0:07:090:07:12

I don't know. I don't think I've really nailed it.

0:07:120:07:17

There we are. George, welcome back, from Barnsley.

0:07:180:07:22

Now, what do you like getting up to in Barnsley, George?

0:07:220:07:25

Uh... Also, I'm retired now.

0:07:250:07:27

I like watching sport, reading, doing pub quizzes.

0:07:270:07:31

George, so when Vicki said you were neighbours,

0:07:310:07:33

are you absolutely next-door, next-door neighbours?

0:07:330:07:35

No, next-door but one.

0:07:350:07:37

-And whose idea was it to come on the show?

-Vicki's.

-Mine.

0:07:370:07:41

I wouldn't want to be the neighbour in the middle thinking, "What?!"

0:07:410:07:44

LAUGHTER I know. I know!

0:07:440:07:46

Yeah, why didn't you ask them?

0:07:460:07:48

You don't have to answer that question.

0:07:480:07:50

They've not been there long enough.

0:07:500:07:52

George, what would you like to go for on our board of Disney

0:07:530:07:57

and Pixar characters?

0:07:570:07:58

-Right...

-Are you happy with it as a round?

0:07:580:08:01

Let's have a look. Hm, I think so.

0:08:010:08:03

I'll try Sulley, Mike and Celia as Monsters, Inc.

0:08:030:08:07

Monsters, Inc. Fabulous film.

0:08:070:08:08

Let's see how many of our 100 people went for Monsters, Inc.

0:08:080:08:12

Very good indeed. 38's our high score.

0:08:140:08:18

You pass it - 34.

0:08:180:08:20

See, that was far more my kids' generation. I love Monsters, Inc.

0:08:250:08:27

-Now that's a brilliant film.

-That's a very good film.

0:08:270:08:30

That's the beauty of kids' films, they never age as well - there's

0:08:300:08:32

just generation after generation of great films for your kids to watch.

0:08:320:08:35

Yeah. Fabulous.

0:08:350:08:37

Now, Oli, welcome. Good to have you here, sir.

0:08:370:08:40

Well, what do you do?

0:08:400:08:42

I'm a freelance chef.

0:08:420:08:43

I go around doing bits of relief work, summer seasonal work,

0:08:430:08:46

-a bit of event catering.

-Now, that's a freelance chef?

-Yeah.

0:08:460:08:49

So support chef. You arrive and everyone goes,

0:08:490:08:51

"Oh, Oli's here, it's fine."

0:08:510:08:53

Not quite. You might get a phone call kind of 24 hours beforehand,

0:08:530:08:56

"Need relief chef." Kind of five, seven days.

0:08:560:08:59

Maybe some kitchen management relief. Just be able to go in there

0:08:590:09:02

-and help some people. Keeps it fresh from my side.

-You've just got to hit

0:09:020:09:05

-the ground running, haven't you?

-Yeah.

0:09:050:09:07

-Do you bring all your own kit with you?

-Yeah, I've got an extended

0:09:070:09:09

tool box with varying bits picked up over the years.

0:09:090:09:12

Wow. What's the most exotic tool in your armoury?

0:09:120:09:14

Pff...

0:09:140:09:16

I've got a spectrometer for measuring light refraction

0:09:160:09:20

through sugar solutions for sorbets.

0:09:200:09:22

LAUGHTER

0:09:220:09:24

Do you know, I'm going to put my mind blowtorch back into

0:09:240:09:28

my...mind tool box here.

0:09:280:09:31

Forget about that. That's exciting.

0:09:310:09:33

What are your interests outside chefing?

0:09:330:09:35

I like to travel a lot,

0:09:350:09:37

do quite a bit of driving, go out and go diving out in the world,

0:09:370:09:40

different places, a bit of scuba, fire staffing.

0:09:400:09:42

Anything that's a little bit kind of different.

0:09:420:09:44

-Stop right there. Fire staffing?

-Yeah.

0:09:440:09:47

Four-foot-long scaffolding poles with wicks on the end, soak it

0:09:470:09:50

in paraffin and set it alight.

0:09:500:09:52

-Wow.

-Spin it round to your heart's content.

0:09:520:09:54

I'm a fire staffer. Twisted fire staffer.

0:09:540:09:56

LAUGHTER

0:09:560:09:58

So you...you have a spinning burning pole?

0:09:580:10:00

-Yes.

-Oh!

0:10:000:10:02

What could possibly go wrong(?)

0:10:020:10:04

-So many things. So many things.

-Yeah. Wow. OK, fantastic.

0:10:040:10:07

Now, Oli, this is your board. If you want to go through it

0:10:070:10:09

and fill in all the banks, it would be very impressive.

0:10:090:10:12

Well, I think, given the recent release,

0:10:120:10:13

Baloo, Shere Khan and Kaa would be Jungle Book.

0:10:130:10:16

Ariel, Flounder and Sebastian has got to be The Little Mermaid.

0:10:160:10:20

Flower, Thumper and Faline, I would say would be Bambi,

0:10:200:10:23

given the date.

0:10:230:10:25

And then Duchess,

0:10:250:10:26

O'Malley and Roquefort is probably Aristocats, I think.

0:10:260:10:29

-I think that's the one I'm going to go for.

-OK.

0:10:290:10:31

Aristocats, says Oli. Let's see if that's right.

0:10:310:10:34

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

0:10:340:10:36

It's right. Well, 38 is still our high score. 2 is our low.

0:10:380:10:43

You passed 38.

0:10:430:10:44

21, there we are. Jolly nice.

0:10:440:10:46

Nicely in between.

0:10:460:10:48

That's very nicely done. Not only did you get all of them right,

0:10:510:10:53

you chose the right one as well.

0:10:530:10:55

And actually, well done to all four pairs,

0:10:550:10:57

you chose the best four answers on the board.

0:10:570:10:59

That does not happen very often. The top three answers are all left.

0:10:590:11:02

Baloo, Shere Khan and Kaa - Jungle Book - would have scored...

0:11:020:11:06

This is the biggest score of all. ..85.

0:11:060:11:08

Little Mermaid - for Ariel, Flounder and Sebastian -

0:11:080:11:12

would have scored you 40.

0:11:120:11:13

And Bambi would have scored 51.

0:11:130:11:15

Thanks very much.

0:11:150:11:16

We're halfway through our first round,

0:11:160:11:18

so let's take a quick look at those scores.

0:11:180:11:20

2. What about that, David?

0:11:200:11:22

Very well done indeed. Lovely low score.

0:11:220:11:25

Then we travel up to 21,

0:11:250:11:26

where we find Oli and Naomi.

0:11:260:11:28

Then up to 34,

0:11:280:11:29

where we find Vicki and George.

0:11:290:11:31

And 38 is where we find Octiva and Steve.

0:11:310:11:33

You're not way out ahead, Steve, but you know what you have to do -

0:11:330:11:36

a low score to keep yourselves in the game.

0:11:360:11:37

Best of luck with that. We come back down the line now.

0:11:370:11:39

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:11:390:11:42

OK, let's put seven more sets of characters up on the board,

0:11:440:11:47

and here they come.

0:11:470:11:48

We've got...

0:11:480:11:50

I'll read those all again.

0:12:100:12:11

-Naomi, welcome to Pointless.

-Hello.

-Great to have you here.

0:12:280:12:31

-What do you do, Naomi?

-I'm a sort of assistant manager of my mum's pub,

0:12:310:12:35

-which is in Dorset.

-Wow! That's fun. How long have you been doing that?

0:12:350:12:38

-About two years now.

-So were you working in it from the beginning?

0:12:380:12:42

-Oh, no, I graduated from university...

-Right.

0:12:420:12:44

-..and then just came down to help her.

-See, that's quite nice.

0:12:440:12:46

It was going to be a second gap year,

0:12:460:12:48

but then it got quite extended.

0:12:480:12:49

And then it just turned into life!

0:12:490:12:51

Ha, ha! Have you ever yet had to call in Oli

0:12:510:12:53

to come and be a supply chef?

0:12:530:12:55

That was how we met.

0:12:550:12:56

-At the pub?

-Yeah.

0:12:580:12:59

He came in, arrived with the tool box...

0:12:590:13:01

You go, "What's with the tool box, Oli?"

0:13:010:13:03

-And then he opened it up...

-Showed me his spectrometer.

-Oh!

0:13:030:13:06

And the rest is history.

0:13:060:13:07

There we go.

0:13:090:13:10

And his centrifuge, of course.

0:13:100:13:12

Now, Naomi, what would you like to go for? There you are on 21.

0:13:120:13:15

The high-scorers on 38 are Steve and Octiva.

0:13:150:13:18

16 or less get you through.

0:13:180:13:21

I'm going to go for one that I'm not 100% sure of, but I think is

0:13:210:13:26

maybe right.

0:13:260:13:28

I'm going to go for Tod, Copper and Vixey being

0:13:280:13:31

-The Fox And The Hound.

-The Fox And The Hound, says Naomi.

0:13:310:13:33

Let's see if that's right. Let's see how many of

0:13:330:13:35

our 100 people said The Fox And The Hound. Here is your red line.

0:13:350:13:37

If you get below that, you are definitely through to Round Two.

0:13:370:13:41

Very well done! Look at that, 7!

0:13:490:13:53

Brilliant. Taking your total up to 28.

0:13:530:13:57

Yeah, Vixey and Tod are foxes and Copper is a dog.

0:13:570:14:00

-Tim Burton's first job was drawing Vixey.

-Really?

0:14:000:14:03

Yeah, he's uncredited for it, but, yeah, that was his first job.

0:14:030:14:06

He said he found it quite... He found it too difficult.

0:14:060:14:09

The style was too different to his own.

0:14:090:14:11

-How extraordinary.

-Yeah.

-Thank you very much, Richard.

0:14:110:14:14

-Now then, Vicki, welcome back.

-Hi.

-Great to have you here.

0:14:140:14:18

Remind us what you like getting up to.

0:14:180:14:21

Bespoke crafting, embroidery.

0:14:210:14:24

Now, yes, bespoke, so the embroidery...

0:14:240:14:26

-Do you...? This is sewing that we talked about last time...

-Yes.

0:14:260:14:29

..that you do for people as presents and things, and people commission

0:14:290:14:32

various things. What's the most ambitious thing you've done?

0:14:320:14:35

Probably something for my daughter's room,

0:14:350:14:37

-about this big.

-That's exciting.

0:14:370:14:40

What did you have on it? What were the...?

0:14:400:14:41

Animals, name, date of birth, things like that.

0:14:410:14:46

-Wonderful.

-Like a zoo.

0:14:460:14:48

Lovely. Absolutely beautiful. Now, there you are on 34.

0:14:480:14:51

We need a low score from you.

0:14:510:14:53

Should you score 3 or less, you'd be through to the next round.

0:14:530:14:56

I know three of them, but I'm pretty sure they're all going to be

0:14:560:15:01

quite high, that's the problem.

0:15:010:15:04

So I'd rather be right and hope.

0:15:040:15:06

So I'll go for Lumiere,

0:15:060:15:08

Chip and Cogsworth - Beauty And The Beast.

0:15:080:15:12

Beauty And The Beast, says Vicki. Here is your red line, very low.

0:15:120:15:15

But let's see what happens when we say Beauty And The Beast.

0:15:150:15:17

How far down the column can we get?

0:15:170:15:19

It's right.

0:15:210:15:22

Not bad at all, 22.

0:15:270:15:29

Takes your total up to 56.

0:15:290:15:32

You might have done enough there, Vicki.

0:15:320:15:34

Yeah, the voice acting and the singing for the Mandarin version

0:15:340:15:37

of Beauty And The Beast was done by Jackie Chan.

0:15:370:15:39

He can do everything, that guy.

0:15:410:15:42

Jackie Chan, Tim Burton, all these people.

0:15:420:15:44

-I know. They all start somewhere, right?

-Yeah. Absolutely.

0:15:440:15:48

Thanks very much indeed.

0:15:480:15:49

-Now, Leanne, what a score from David in the first pass there!

-Yep.

0:15:490:15:53

Fantastic.

0:15:530:15:54

That set you up beautifully there.

0:15:540:15:56

So, yes, 53 or less is all you require to find yourselves

0:15:560:16:00

comfortably into Round Two. Leanne, remind us what you do.

0:16:000:16:03

I work as a customer service manager.

0:16:030:16:05

That's right. And what are your interests up there in Livingston?

0:16:050:16:08

What do you like getting up to there?

0:16:080:16:10

-Keep fit, walking the dog.

-What kind of dog have you got?

0:16:100:16:12

-I've got a Labrador called Honey.

-How old's Honey?

-She's seven.

0:16:120:16:16

Very... Gosh, if you are into keeping fit, Honey has no choice

0:16:160:16:19

but to be into keeping fit as well.

0:16:190:16:21

-We usually have a two-hour walk each night.

-See, that's good.

0:16:210:16:24

-So she's...

-That's very good indeed.

0:16:240:16:26

Now, there you are, on 2.

0:16:260:16:29

What would you like to go for?

0:16:290:16:31

I think they're all going to be quite high,

0:16:310:16:33

and the one that I'm thinking of,

0:16:330:16:35

I'm talking myself out of whether or not it's the right answer.

0:16:350:16:38

But I think Pongo is 101 Dalmatians.

0:16:380:16:40

OK. Pongo, Perdita and Colonel - 101 Dalmatians.

0:16:400:16:44

There's your red line.

0:16:440:16:45

You have to get below that. Let's see if you can with 101 Dalmatians.

0:16:450:16:49

It's right.

0:16:510:16:53

You've done it. Look at that, 40.

0:16:540:16:57

40 takes your total up to 42.

0:16:590:17:00

Yeah, Dodie Smith, the writer of 101 Dalmatians,

0:17:020:17:04

she was given a Dalmatian puppy called Pongo,

0:17:040:17:07

and that inspired her to write the story.

0:17:070:17:10

Well, what inspired her was a friend of hers who said that

0:17:100:17:12

Pongo's coat would make a nice fur coat,

0:17:120:17:14

and she thought, "Hold on a minute."

0:17:140:17:17

Interesting.

0:17:170:17:18

Steve. Welcome to Pointless.

0:17:180:17:20

Great to have you here from Newcastle.

0:17:200:17:22

-What do you do up in Newcastle?

-I work for an IT company.

0:17:220:17:26

-I'm a software engineer.

-I see.

0:17:260:17:27

And what do you like doing when not working for IT?

0:17:270:17:30

I like going to music concerts.

0:17:300:17:33

And I like going to football matches.

0:17:330:17:36

-Very good. Who do you support?

-I actually support Reading.

0:17:360:17:39

Convenient(!) Good. LAUGHTER

0:17:390:17:42

-Obviously, living in Newcastle.

-Yeah.

-Why not?

-Exactly, why not?

0:17:420:17:45

Where do you like to go and see things?

0:17:450:17:47

I mean, how far afield do you travel with your music?

0:17:470:17:49

Well, there's lots of venues in Newcastle, in Gateshead.

0:17:490:17:52

-Yeah.

-But I've been to...

0:17:520:17:54

Go down to Leeds, been down to York.

0:17:540:17:57

-Up to Edinburgh at all? Up to the Playhouse?

-Uh...

0:17:570:17:59

I've never seen music up there.

0:17:590:18:00

I went up to the Edinburgh Festival a couple of times

0:18:000:18:03

to see things up there, but pretty much... Because Newcastle...

0:18:030:18:06

-I mean, Newcastle...

-When it comes to the north, let's face it.

0:18:060:18:08

It provides everything. You never need to travel.

0:18:080:18:11

-Very fine, Newcastle. You find world-class things.

-Exactly.

0:18:110:18:14

There you are.

0:18:140:18:15

OK, now, 38 is your score.

0:18:150:18:17

The high-scorers at the moment

0:18:170:18:18

are Vicki and George on 56.

0:18:180:18:19

This is exciting.

0:18:190:18:21

17 or less is what we require.

0:18:210:18:23

Right. I only know two of the answers.

0:18:230:18:26

I think Abu, Genie and Iago is Aladdin.

0:18:260:18:30

Jiminy Cricket, etc, is Pinocchio.

0:18:300:18:33

I've got no idea what Rusty, Ollie and Larry is all about.

0:18:330:18:36

Fairy Godmother... No, I'd be guessing. I don't want to guess.

0:18:360:18:39

So, um...

0:18:390:18:41

I'm going to go for Jiminy Cricket, J Worthington is Pinocchio.

0:18:410:18:45

Pinocchio, says Steve. Now, here comes your red line.

0:18:450:18:48

This is what you have to get below with Jiminy Cricket.

0:18:480:18:50

Can you do it? That's the question.

0:18:500:18:53

How many of our 100 people went for Pinocchio?

0:18:530:18:55

It's right.

0:18:580:18:59

Oh, Steve!

0:19:020:19:03

Much as I feared,

0:19:040:19:06

yeah, that's a high score for Pinocchio,

0:19:060:19:08

taking your total up to 98, I'm afraid.

0:19:080:19:10

Yeah, and the one you didn't know

0:19:100:19:12

is the one that would have saved you, unsurprisingly.

0:19:120:19:14

Abu, Genie and Iago was Aladdin.

0:19:140:19:18

Quite right.

0:19:180:19:19

That would have scored 45.

0:19:190:19:20

And Fairy Godmother, etc,

0:19:200:19:22

was Cinderella.

0:19:220:19:23

And that would have scored you 49.

0:19:230:19:25

Now, Rusty, Ollie and Larry was Home On The Range

0:19:250:19:28

and is a pointless answer, so very, very well done if you said that.

0:19:280:19:32

-Home On The Range.

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

0:19:320:19:35

At the end of our first round, the pair heading home with 98...

0:19:350:19:38

Steve and Octiva, I'm sorry to say, it is you.

0:19:380:19:40

You're not far ahead,

0:19:400:19:41

but you just happen to be the high-scorers,

0:19:410:19:43

so we have to say goodbye.

0:19:430:19:45

We'll see you again next time, when I hope you'll go much further.

0:19:450:19:47

In the meantime, thanks very much, Steve and Octiva.

0:19:470:19:50

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

0:19:530:19:56

And there we go, into Round Two,

0:20:010:20:02

and we've dropped one of our couples, as you will have noticed.

0:20:020:20:06

Well, Vicki and George, well done, you made it through to Round Two.

0:20:060:20:09

ALEXANDER SIGHS A little bit close there.

0:20:090:20:11

Well done on the far podium, Naomi and Oli, our lowest combined score.

0:20:110:20:15

Very well done indeed.

0:20:150:20:16

Well done on the near podium, David,

0:20:160:20:18

with our lowest individual score of the round. Superb!

0:20:180:20:21

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

0:20:210:20:26

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

0:20:270:20:30

who's going to go second?

0:20:300:20:31

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

0:20:310:20:34

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

0:20:360:20:39

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name...

0:20:390:20:42

Richard.

0:20:480:20:49

Yeah, just looking for any of the 20 men in charge of one of those

0:20:490:20:52

Premier League clubs at the start of the 2015-2016 season, please.

0:20:520:20:56

Thank you very much indeed.

0:20:560:20:58

So then, Leanne.

0:20:580:21:00

I've went totally blank. All I can think of is...

0:21:020:21:04

..Harry Redknapp, and I don't think that's right.

0:21:070:21:10

OK, Harry Redknapp says Leanne. Let's see if that is right.

0:21:100:21:13

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

0:21:130:21:16

Bad luck, Leanne. I'm sorry. Sorry.

0:21:190:21:22

Not Harry Redknapp.

0:21:220:21:23

That scores you 100 points.

0:21:230:21:25

Yeah, sorry, Leanne, particularly hard to be

0:21:250:21:27

on that first podium as well if it's a subject that's not your

0:21:270:21:29

strong point, but it might not be the last 100 points we see.

0:21:290:21:32

Thanks very much indeed.

0:21:320:21:34

Vicki, who would you like to go for?

0:21:340:21:36

I know a few,

0:21:360:21:40

but it's whether they started, that's the thing.

0:21:400:21:42

-Jurgen Klopp.

-Jurgen Klopp, says Vicki. Let's see if that's right.

0:21:440:21:48

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

0:21:480:21:51

Oh, no! Well, listen, you are in very good company.

0:21:540:21:57

You have a party going on up there at 100.

0:21:570:21:59

I'm afraid another incorrect answer, scoring you 100.

0:21:590:22:02

Yeah, sorry, Jurgen Klopp became Liverpool manager,

0:22:020:22:04

but didn't start the season as Liverpool manager.

0:22:040:22:08

OK. Now then, Oli.

0:22:080:22:10

Not exactly my best subject, so I think I am going to play it

0:22:110:22:14

fairly safe and go for a family favourite - Arsene Wenger.

0:22:140:22:18

Arsene Wenger, says Oli,

0:22:180:22:19

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

0:22:190:22:22

It's right.

0:22:250:22:26

Not bad.

0:22:300:22:31

Yeah, been at Arsenal for a very,

0:22:340:22:36

very long time. First appointed when David Dein,

0:22:360:22:38

the Arsenal chairman, met Wenger at Monaco and they played charades.

0:22:380:22:43

And when he saw Arsene Wenger acting out A Midsummer Night's Dream

0:22:430:22:46

in what's essentially his third language, English, he thought,

0:22:460:22:49

"Oh, this guy is a little bit different to our other managers."

0:22:490:22:51

You know, "Maybe he'll be good for our club."

0:22:510:22:53

Fabulous. Thank you very much, Richard.

0:22:530:22:55

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

0:22:550:22:57

55, the best score of the pass, Oli. Very well done indeed.

0:22:570:23:00

I think you and Naomi might well be in the head-to-head at this rate.

0:23:000:23:03

Then we travel up to 100,

0:23:030:23:04

where we find Vicki and George

0:23:040:23:05

and Leanne and David.

0:23:050:23:06

So, yes, George and David, let's see what happens in the next pass.

0:23:060:23:09

We come back down the line now.

0:23:090:23:11

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:23:110:23:13

OK, now, Naomi, remember, we're looking for any Premier League

0:23:160:23:19

manager at the start of the 2015-2016 season.

0:23:190:23:24

Unfortunately, I have nothing, not even an inkling of anyone who

0:23:240:23:28

-has ever been a football manager anywhere.

-OK.

0:23:280:23:31

So this is going to be a matter of just making some names up.

0:23:310:23:34

-Making a name up.

-Making a name up.

-Just rolling the die.

-Well, listen,

0:23:340:23:37

if you can make a name up that scores you 44 or less...

0:23:370:23:41

you are through to the next round.

0:23:410:23:43

Let's go with...Robin Smith.

0:23:440:23:48

MUFFLED LAUGHTER

0:23:480:23:50

I'm going to give you points for Robin.

0:23:500:23:52

I think that's...that is good.

0:23:520:23:54

-Smith, yeah...

-Not imaginative enough?

-Well, I don't know.

0:23:550:23:59

But then, you know, who knows? Robin Smith, let's see.

0:23:590:24:01

Here is your red line.

0:24:010:24:03

And here is Robin Smith.

0:24:030:24:04

Oh, I'm sorry, Naomi. However,

0:24:100:24:12

thanks to Oli's efforts in the first pass, you never know,

0:24:120:24:14

you might have done enough there.

0:24:140:24:16

That scores you 100 points, takes your total up to 155.

0:24:160:24:18

Yeah, not a manager of a Premier League team.

0:24:180:24:20

Statistically, probably been a manager of Leeds at some point,

0:24:200:24:23

cos...everybody else has.

0:24:230:24:25

There was an England international cricketer called Robin Smith,

0:24:250:24:28

-but he didn't make the leap into football management.

-No, no.

0:24:280:24:33

There we are.

0:24:330:24:34

-Now then, George.

-Yep.

-George, this is fun, isn't it?

-Yep.

0:24:340:24:39

You have to score 54 or less. I mean, fill your boots.

0:24:390:24:43

-Right. Alan Pardew.

-Alan Pardew, says George. There we are.

0:24:430:24:47

Here is your red line. Get below this red line

0:24:470:24:49

with Alan Pardew, you are in the head-to-head.

0:24:490:24:51

How many people said it?

0:24:510:24:52

It's right.

0:24:550:24:57

You're in the head-to-head. Well done, George.

0:24:570:24:59

12 for Alan Pardew.

0:25:020:25:03

Very good indeed. 112, your total.

0:25:050:25:07

You could see George just happily watching that round fall apart

0:25:090:25:12

around him, just thinking, "I'm all right here."

0:25:120:25:14

Yeah, Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew.

0:25:140:25:16

Thanks very much indeed. Now, David.

0:25:160:25:19

David, again, 54 or less is your target.

0:25:190:25:22

This is either something you're going to be very good at,

0:25:220:25:24

which I hope...

0:25:240:25:26

-Reasonably confident.

-OK, good.

0:25:260:25:28

I mean, I want to take a gamble and go with a fellow Scotsman,

0:25:280:25:31

but I really need to get through,

0:25:310:25:33

so I'm going to go with The Hammers' manager, Slaven Bilic.

0:25:330:25:36

Slaven Bilic. OK, let's see if that's right. Here is your red line.

0:25:360:25:40

Let's see if you can get below that. How many people said it?

0:25:400:25:43

It's right. HE SIGHS

0:25:460:25:48

And you're through to the head-to-head.

0:25:490:25:51

Very well done indeed.

0:25:510:25:52

Loot at that.

0:25:520:25:54

Scoring you 6.

0:25:540:25:55

Very well done indeed.

0:25:550:25:57

106 is your total.

0:25:570:25:58

Yeah, former Croatia manager.

0:26:010:26:03

He used to play for West Ham as well, Slaven Bilic.

0:26:030:26:05

-What would your risk have been, David?

-Alex Neil.

0:26:050:26:07

Alex Neil, I thought it would have been.

0:26:070:26:09

Yeah, 2 points for Alex Neil.

0:26:090:26:10

I couldn't remember which way the name went, I was so nervous,

0:26:100:26:14

-so...

-You know what, you did exactly the right thing,

0:26:140:26:16

exactly the right thing.

0:26:160:26:18

There is a pointless answer out there,

0:26:180:26:20

out of the 20 answers. That's Quique Flores, the Watford manager,

0:26:200:26:24

is a pointless answer. You'd have got 1 point for Dick Advocaat,

0:26:240:26:26

he was Sunderland manager.

0:26:260:26:28

2 for Alex Neil, 3 for Garry Monk at Swansea, 4 for Tim Sherwood,

0:26:280:26:32

who started at Aston Villa,

0:26:320:26:34

5 for Ronald Koeman at Southampton,

0:26:340:26:35

6 for Eddie Howe and Tony Pulis and Steve McClaren.

0:26:350:26:39

Ten for Brendan Rodgers and Mark Hughes. Brendan Rodgers was

0:26:390:26:41

the Liverpool manager before Jurgen Klopp.

0:26:410:26:44

11 for Mauricio Pochettino,

0:26:440:26:46

12 for Manuel Pellegrini,

0:26:460:26:48

16 for Roberto Martinez,

0:26:480:26:50

27 for Jose Mourinho,

0:26:500:26:52

32 for Louis van Gaal.

0:26:520:26:55

No-one would've thought that the Leicester manager would be

0:26:550:26:57

the second top-scorer, but he is - Claudio Ranieri with 35,

0:26:570:27:00

-and then we've already heard Wenger.

-Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:27:000:27:03

So at the end of our second round,

0:27:030:27:05

I'm sorry to say, Naomi and Oli,

0:27:050:27:06

we have to say goodbye to you with your high score of 155.

0:27:060:27:09

I'm sure you've got great things in you for the next time, though,

0:27:090:27:12

and I'm sure you'll go much further then.

0:27:120:27:14

In the meantime, thanks very much for playing.

0:27:140:27:16

Naomi, and Oli.

0:27:160:27:17

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

0:27:200:27:24

Congratulations, Leanne and David, Vicki and George.

0:27:290:27:31

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

0:27:310:27:34

for our jackpot, which currently stands at £3,000.

0:27:340:27:38

Well, we have now reached the head-to-head, which means

0:27:420:27:44

you can start playing as a pair.

0:27:440:27:45

You can confer before you give your answers.

0:27:450:27:47

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

0:27:470:27:50

Leanne and David, you've been here before.

0:27:500:27:52

Only now, you're our golden couple, you're our low-scoring couple.

0:27:520:27:56

Last time, you were the blue couple.

0:27:560:27:57

And, Vicki and George, second time of asking,

0:27:570:28:00

here you are in the head-to-head, which is lovely.

0:28:000:28:02

How nice to have two returning pairs in the head-to-head.

0:28:020:28:05

We've had great answers from both pairs, actually,

0:28:050:28:07

so I think this should be close.

0:28:070:28:08

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

0:28:080:28:11

Here's your first question, and it concerns...

0:28:170:28:20

-Richard.

-Yeah, we'll show you five pictures now

0:28:220:28:24

of big animals, and we're going to give you alternate letters of

0:28:240:28:27

their names. Can you tell us what they are, please?

0:28:270:28:30

Thank you very much. Let's reveal our five big animals,

0:28:300:28:32

and here they come. We have got...

0:28:320:28:34

There we are. Five big animals.

0:29:010:29:03

Now, Leanne and David,

0:29:030:29:05

you've been our low-scorers, so you will go first.

0:29:050:29:08

THEY WHISPER

0:29:080:29:12

Yeah, OK.

0:29:180:29:19

We are pretty confident on two, but we're going to take a bit of

0:29:190:29:22

a gamble and go with C - Goliath beetle.

0:29:220:29:25

Goliath beetle, say Leanne and David.

0:29:250:29:28

George and Vicki, what would you like to go for?

0:29:280:29:30

-That board is all yours.

-That's what we were going to say, C.

0:29:300:29:33

That's what we were going to say.

0:29:330:29:35

-Do you want to talk us through all the others?

-No.

0:29:350:29:37

LAUGHTER

0:29:370:29:40

B is whale shark.

0:29:400:29:41

A, we think, is a giant tortoise.

0:29:430:29:46

-We're going to have to go for the shark.

-Yeah.

0:29:460:29:50

-We'll say B - whale shark.

-OK, B - whale shark.

0:29:500:29:52

So we have Goliath beetle and we have whale shark.

0:29:520:29:54

Leanne and David have gone for Goliath beetle for C.

0:29:540:29:57

Let's see if that's right.

0:29:570:29:58

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

0:29:580:30:00

HE SIGHS

0:30:020:30:05

There we are! Very well done indeed.

0:30:070:30:09

17. That's a great answer.

0:30:090:30:11

Vicki and George, meanwhile, have gone for whale shark for B.

0:30:150:30:18

Let's see if that's right.

0:30:180:30:19

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

0:30:190:30:21

It's right.

0:30:240:30:25

59 for whale shark.

0:30:270:30:29

Very well done indeed.

0:30:300:30:31

Leanne and David, after one question, you are up 1-0.

0:30:310:30:34

Yeah, well played. Good to take that risk.

0:30:340:30:36

If your things fit the words, it's usually the right answer.

0:30:360:30:40

A is giant tortoise, of course.

0:30:400:30:43

It's a surprisingly low score, that, 39.

0:30:430:30:45

-I don't know what people think that is.

-How giant is that?

0:30:450:30:48

I mean, that is...

0:30:480:30:49

From the perspective of that...

0:30:490:30:51

-It is half the size of a mountain, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:30:510:30:54

Although, that is the world's tiniest mountain.

0:30:540:30:57

-Ah.

-Let's take a look at the rest.

0:30:570:31:01

Now, E... Again, this thing of filling in words, so you can work...

0:31:010:31:05

It is a something giant rabbit.

0:31:050:31:07

We all know it's a something...

0:31:070:31:08

Flemish, I'm going for there.

0:31:080:31:10

Flemish is right. Very well done.

0:31:100:31:12

And that would've scored you 10 points.

0:31:120:31:14

One of those has been 4'3" long.

0:31:140:31:16

Imagine a rabbit 4'3" long.

0:31:160:31:18

How big is the tattoo on that hand, though? That's what I'm trying to...

0:31:180:31:21

-Are they genuine footprints on there?

-Yes.

0:31:210:31:23

-Yeah.

-Yeah. But the other one, D...

0:31:230:31:27

See, this is the one that, again,

0:31:270:31:29

-we can all work out it's giant, again...

-Yeah.

0:31:290:31:32

But I've been going through every word in the alphabet,

0:31:320:31:35

everyone at home will be going through it trying to do it.

0:31:350:31:38

Give up.

0:31:380:31:39

Give up. It is a New Zealand animal, and it is called the giant weta.

0:31:390:31:43

The giant weta. And that would have scored you 1 point.

0:31:430:31:46

So someone... Someone out there's from New Zealand. The giant weta.

0:31:460:31:50

I wonder how giant that is.

0:31:500:31:51

Oh, that is 40 foot long.

0:31:510:31:53

OK. Good. LAUGHTER

0:31:530:31:55

You see...you see that speck there?

0:31:550:31:57

-Yeah.

-That's Auckland.

-Yes.

0:31:570:31:59

RICHARD LAUGHS

0:31:590:32:00

No, that WAS Auckland.

0:32:000:32:02

OK, yeah, got it.

0:32:020:32:03

Thank you very much indeed. OK, so, here comes your second question.

0:32:030:32:07

Vicki and George, you get to answer it first,

0:32:070:32:09

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

0:32:090:32:11

Our second question today is all about...

0:32:110:32:14

Fun!

0:32:170:32:18

Yeah, we're going to show you five UK top 40 singles now,

0:32:180:32:21

but who had hits with them in the years shown, please?

0:32:210:32:24

Thanks very much indeed.

0:32:240:32:25

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

0:32:250:32:28

So, George and Vicki, you will go first.

0:33:000:33:03

THEY WHISPER

0:33:030:33:05

Um, we know four of them.

0:33:130:33:16

It's just what is going to be the lowest.

0:33:160:33:20

We'll go for You've Got The Love by Florence and the Machine.

0:33:200:33:25

Florence and the Machine, say Vicki and George, for You've Got The Love.

0:33:250:33:28

Now, Leanne and David, that board's all yours. Talk us through it.

0:33:280:33:31

-That was the one that we were going to go with.

-Yeah.

0:33:310:33:34

I'll know the first one when it comes up. Scratch my brain.

0:33:340:33:37

Same with California Dreamin'. The song is going through my head.

0:33:370:33:40

-Go for the last one, then?

-Yeah.

-Echo and the Bunnymen

0:33:400:33:44

-for Nothing Lasts Forever.

-OK, Echo and the Bunnymen.

0:33:440:33:46

So we have Florence and the Machine and Echo and the Bunnymen.

0:33:460:33:48

George and Vicki went for Florence and the Machine,

0:33:480:33:51

for You've Got The Love. Let see if that's right.

0:33:510:33:53

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

0:33:530:33:55

It's right.

0:33:570:33:58

36 for Florence and the Machine.

0:34:070:34:09

Now then, Leanne and David have gone for Echo and the Bunnymen.

0:34:090:34:12

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

0:34:120:34:15

It's right.

0:34:170:34:18

-AUDIENCE:

-Ooooh....

0:34:180:34:20

And it wins you the point!

0:34:200:34:23

Look at that.

0:34:230:34:24

12 for Echo and the Bunnymen.

0:34:240:34:26

So there you are, you were encouraged

0:34:260:34:28

to a better answer, and it means, Leanne and David,

0:34:280:34:31

after only two questions, you are straight through to the final, 2-0.

0:34:310:34:34

And, you know what, your brains work perfectly for Pointless

0:34:340:34:37

cos the two that you were struggling over are the two

0:34:370:34:39

highest scorers, and the one you knew was the lowest scorer, so...

0:34:390:34:42

-I think it's an age thing.

-You were custom-built for this show.

0:34:420:34:44

-Layla was...

-Derek and the Dominos.

0:34:440:34:47

Derek and the Dominos, yeah. With Eric Clapton.

0:34:470:34:49

That would've scored you 41. California Dreamin'?

0:34:490:34:53

-The Mamas and the Papas.

-The Mamas and the Papas.

0:34:530:34:55

That would've scored 39. And Three Little Birds?

0:34:550:34:57

Bob Marley and the Wailers.

0:34:570:34:58

Bob Marley and the Wailers.

0:34:580:35:00

-Also would have seen you through with 27 points.

-There we are.

0:35:000:35:02

Thank you very much indeed.

0:35:020:35:04

So, at the end of our head-to-head round, I'm afraid, Vicki and George,

0:35:040:35:07

this is where we have to say goodbye to you,

0:35:070:35:09

but thank you for being so brilliant on both shows.

0:35:090:35:11

Great performance across the show today.

0:35:110:35:13

I'm sorry we didn't get you into the final

0:35:130:35:14

and send you home with a trophy, but thank you so much for playing.

0:35:140:35:17

-Vicki and George.

-Thank you.

0:35:170:35:19

Thank you. Bye.

0:35:210:35:22

But for Leanne and David, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:220:35:25

Well, congratulations.

0:35:290:35:31

Leanne and David, you've seen off all the competition and you

0:35:310:35:33

have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:330:35:36

-Yay!

-You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot, and at the

0:35:420:35:45

end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £3,000.

0:35:450:35:48

There we are.

0:35:480:35:49

Well, your first answer of the day, David, was Tarzan, that scored 2.

0:35:540:35:58

Lowest score, I think, of the show.

0:35:580:36:01

You survived Premier...English Premier League football managers.

0:36:010:36:05

And out you came, came through smiling.

0:36:050:36:07

2-0 in the head-to-head.

0:36:070:36:09

Yeah, I mean, just round it off with a nice pointless answer

0:36:090:36:12

here, and you can go home with that decent jackpot - 3,000 quid.

0:36:120:36:14

Anything you'd particularly like to see come up in this last round?

0:36:140:36:17

Leanne, you first.

0:36:170:36:19

-Sport or film.

-Sport or film. David?

0:36:190:36:22

I think sport is aimed at me.

0:36:220:36:24

I'm a bit of a cricket buff. I'm a big fan, so obscure cricket,

0:36:240:36:29

international cricket.

0:36:290:36:30

-Maybe some literature, if it falls into our kind of thing.

-OK.

0:36:300:36:34

-But sport in general.

-Well, very, very best of luck. As always,

0:36:340:36:36

you get to choose the category from the board behind me.

0:36:360:36:39

Let's see what today's selection look like. We've got...

0:36:390:36:41

DAVID GROANS

0:36:480:36:50

-Not the best, is it? I think we can... We don't do jazz.

-No.

0:36:500:36:54

-Land of Oz is going to be...

-The Tropics might be...

0:36:540:36:56

I think Tropics will be geography, so...

0:36:560:36:58

We'll go with the Tropics and hope that it's countries and geography or something along the lines.

0:36:580:37:02

-OK, the Tropics it is.

-OK, very best of luck.

0:37:020:37:04

You are exactly right. That is exactly what it is.

0:37:040:37:06

We are looking for the following, please.

0:37:060:37:08

We are looking for any country that has any land anywhere between

0:37:080:37:11

the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.

0:37:110:37:13

As always, by country, we mean a sovereign state that's a member of the UN in its own right.

0:37:130:37:17

We are looking for the capital cities of any of those

0:37:170:37:19

countries as well.

0:37:190:37:20

Or we're looking for any British Overseas Territories

0:37:200:37:23

in the Tropics.

0:37:230:37:24

So, any country that has any of its land somewhere between the Tropics,

0:37:240:37:28

the capital cities of those countries

0:37:280:37:30

and British Overseas Territories.

0:37:300:37:31

Very best of luck.

0:37:310:37:33

OK, now, as always, you have up to one minute

0:37:330:37:35

to come up with three answers.

0:37:350:37:36

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

0:37:360:37:39

-to be pointless. Are you ready?

-Yep.

-Eh.... One, two, three.

0:37:390:37:42

-Yep, we're ready.

-OK. Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:37:420:37:45

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:37:450:37:47

Capital Cities... Djibouti City.

0:37:470:37:50

You could have Benin.

0:37:500:37:52

You could have Djibouti itself.

0:37:520:37:54

Equatorial... No, that's too far north. Equatorial Guinea.

0:37:540:37:58

I'm thinking St Vincent, Grenadines.

0:37:580:38:00

I'm thinking Antigua & Barbuda.

0:38:000:38:04

I'm thinking possibly the Falkland Islands.

0:38:040:38:06

That may be a bit obvious.

0:38:060:38:08

Eh...

0:38:080:38:10

Try to see what else. Maybe go a bit Asian route.

0:38:110:38:15

I'm trying to think. I'm trying to think.

0:38:150:38:17

I'm just trying to think of anywhere that is

0:38:170:38:19

a British Overseas Territory, you know.

0:38:190:38:21

Captain Cook, you know, trying to remember all that.

0:38:210:38:23

-Seychelles, maybe. Yeah, Seychelles could be.

-Mauritius.

0:38:230:38:27

I don't know.

0:38:270:38:29

I think I'm quite keen to go with Djibouti City,

0:38:290:38:32

-go with St Vincent, Grenadines...

-Right, OK.

0:38:320:38:35

-..and go with...

-Ten seconds left.

0:38:350:38:37

-..Antigua & Barbuda.

-OK, that's fine. We'll go with that.

0:38:390:38:41

-And if we don't got it, we don't get it.

-Yep.

0:38:410:38:44

OK, sounds like you've arrived at your three answers,

0:38:440:38:46

and your time has just run out.

0:38:460:38:48

So if you could just give me those three answers and the

0:38:480:38:50

categories they are in, that'd be great.

0:38:500:38:52

-I would go with Djibouti City, the capital of Djibouti.

-Djibouti City.

0:38:520:38:56

-Antigua & Barbuda.

-Antigua & Barbuda.

0:38:560:38:57

And I'm going to go with...

0:38:570:38:59

In which category, by the way, Antigua & Barbuda?

0:38:590:39:01

-Countries in the Tropics.

-Countries in the Tropics. Yep, good.

0:39:010:39:04

And St Vincent and the Grenadines. Countries in the Tropics.

0:39:040:39:07

But I think, if it falls in any one of those, yeah,

0:39:070:39:09

hopefully it will be OK.

0:39:090:39:10

OK. St Vincent and the Grenadines as well.

0:39:100:39:12

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

0:39:120:39:16

St Vincent and the Grenadines.

0:39:160:39:17

St Vincent and the Grenadines goes last.

0:39:170:39:19

Least likely to be pointless?

0:39:190:39:20

-Djibouti.

-Djibouti City, cos I'm not sure where it sits.

0:39:200:39:22

-Djibouti City. And then we've got Antigua & Barbuda...

-Yeah.

0:39:220:39:25

..in the middle. OK, well,

0:39:250:39:26

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

0:39:260:39:29

And here they are. We've got...

0:39:290:39:31

Well, three good answers on the board there. Let's hope one

0:39:350:39:38

of those ends up being pointless and wins you that jackpot. 3,000 quid,

0:39:380:39:42

that's quite a nice sum to be taking home.

0:39:420:39:44

What would you like to do with that? Leanne, you first.

0:39:440:39:46

I would probably go shopping. Take the kids shopping as well.

0:39:460:39:50

-Excellent. David?

-I don't think I'll see it, to be honest.

0:39:500:39:54

I think I'll just come home one day and find lots of bags

0:39:540:39:57

in the living room or something like that.

0:39:570:39:59

But if I get a chance,

0:39:590:40:00

I think I'd probably like to spend a little bit of money maybe on

0:40:000:40:04

some golf or something like that, maybe take that up.

0:40:040:40:06

Very good. OK, well, very, very best of luck.

0:40:060:40:09

Your first answer was Djibouti City.

0:40:090:40:11

In this case, we were looking for capital cities between the Tropics.

0:40:110:40:14

Only one of these answers has to be pointless, remember,

0:40:140:40:17

for you to win that jackpot of £3,000.

0:40:170:40:18

Let's see, for £3,000, how many people said Djibouti City?

0:40:180:40:22

It's right.

0:40:250:40:27

Djibouti City is absolutely between the Tropics. Down it goes.

0:40:270:40:30

If this goes all the way to zero,

0:40:300:40:31

you leave here immediately with a cheque for £3,000.

0:40:310:40:33

Down we go through the teens

0:40:330:40:35

and into single figures. Still going down.

0:40:350:40:36

Still going down, still going...

0:40:360:40:38

You've done it! Congrats!

0:40:380:40:40

Fantastic! Fantastic!

0:40:420:40:45

Superb!

0:40:450:40:46

Brilliant.

0:40:470:40:48

Look at that!

0:40:520:40:53

Congratulations. Djibouti City was a pointless answer,

0:40:530:40:56

which means you go home with today's jackpot of £3,000.

0:40:560:41:00

Very well done, Leanne and David. Superb.

0:41:000:41:02

Yeah, you chose very, very well there.

0:41:060:41:08

This is... For anyone who knows anything about geography,

0:41:080:41:10

this is an absolute gimme, this round. It's brilliant stuff.

0:41:100:41:13

Let's take a look at some of the pointless answers here.

0:41:130:41:15

Antigua & Barbuda was a pointless answer,

0:41:200:41:22

which you also said.

0:41:220:41:23

You also mentioned Djibouti as the country,

0:41:230:41:25

that was a pointless answer as well. Equatorial Guinea, you mentioned.

0:41:250:41:28

That was a pointless answer.

0:41:280:41:29

Mauritius, you mentioned, was a pointless answer.

0:41:290:41:31

Seychelles, you mentioned - pointless answer.

0:41:310:41:33

St Vincent and the Grenadines you went for - pointless answer.

0:41:330:41:36

Brunei, Burundi, Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Comoros,

0:41:360:41:39

Costa Rica, Cote d'Ivoire,

0:41:390:41:40

Dominica, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Fiji, Grenada, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau,

0:41:400:41:44

Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mauritania,

0:41:440:41:46

Senegal, Somalia, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia,

0:41:460:41:48

Sudan, Tanzania, The Gambia, Togo, Tonga, Trinidad & Tobago, Tuvalu,

0:41:480:41:51

Vanuatu and Vietnam - all pointless answers.

0:41:510:41:54

I tell you what wasn't a pointless answer -

0:41:540:41:55

Central African Republic, with 2 points.

0:41:550:41:57

-LAUGHTER

-2 points.

0:41:570:42:00

Big shout out to Central African Republic there.

0:42:030:42:06

Very well done. Now, the capital cities...

0:42:060:42:09

It's quicker if I go through the ones that weren't pointless answers.

0:42:090:42:12

The ones that would have scored points - Mexico City,

0:42:120:42:14

Kingston, Brasilia, Nairobi, Lima, Bangkok, Paramaribo,

0:42:140:42:18

Singapore, Havana, Panama City, Caracas, Georgetown and Bogota.

0:42:180:42:22

Every single other answer was pointless.

0:42:220:42:24

The British Overseas Territories is an interesting one.

0:42:240:42:26

The ones we've sort of heard of and are not quite sure where

0:42:260:42:28

they are. There's only three pointless answers here.

0:42:280:42:31

The ones that scored points - British Virgin Islands,

0:42:340:42:36

Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, Cayman Islands

0:42:360:42:38

and British Indian Ocean Territory.

0:42:380:42:40

Those were the other answers that weren't pointless.

0:42:400:42:42

But great choice of category

0:42:420:42:44

and you absolutely nailed it. Terrific stuff. Very well played.

0:42:440:42:47

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:42:470:42:48

And thanks once again to our winning players, Leanne and David,

0:42:480:42:51

who go away with today's jackpot of £3,000. Very well done.

0:42:510:42:54

Thank you very much.

0:42:540:42:55

APPLAUSE

0:42:550:42:58

Join us next time when we'll be putting more obscure knowledge

0:42:580:43:01

to the test on Pointless.

0:43:010:43:02

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:020:43:04

And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.
