Thank you very much indeed. Hello, I'm Alexander Armstrong,

0:00:210:00:23

and welcome to Pointless, the show where we are always aiming

0:00:230:00:26

for the most obscure answers.

0:00:260:00:28

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:30

And, couple number one.

0:00:340:00:35

Hi, I'm Linsey, this is my husband Dale, and we're from Dunfermline.

0:00:350:00:39

-Couple number two.

-Hi, I'm Jo, this is my friend Denise,

0:00:390:00:41

and we're from Wetherby in Yorkshire.

0:00:410:00:43

Couple number three.

0:00:430:00:44

Hi, I'm Laura, I'm from Stroud in Gloucestershire.

0:00:440:00:47

This is my friend Kate, originally from Cardiff, now residing in Leeds.

0:00:470:00:50

And, finally, couple number four.

0:00:500:00:51

Hi, I'm Greg, this is my friend Sean, and we live in Leeds.

0:00:510:00:54

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:540:00:56

Thanks very much, all of you.

0:00:580:00:59

A very warm welcome to Pointless. Great to have you here.

0:00:590:01:02

We'll get to chat to you throughout the show.

0:01:020:01:04

That just leaves one more person for me to introduce,

0:01:040:01:06

here to clear things up like a put-upon caretaker,

0:01:060:01:09

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

0:01:090:01:12

Hiya.

0:01:120:01:13

Hi, everybody. Good afternoon.

0:01:130:01:15

-Good afternoon to you.

-Good afternoon.

0:01:150:01:17

Now, we only have one returning pair from the last show,

0:01:170:01:20

and we feel very guilty, Jo and Denise,

0:01:200:01:22

who got knocked out by one letter.

0:01:220:01:24

One of those ones where you had to be fair to the other team,

0:01:240:01:26

but they were very, very unfortunate.

0:01:260:01:28

I would say to the other three pairs,

0:01:280:01:30

it would be much fairer if you just let them win,

0:01:300:01:32

I think that'd be a very kind thing to do.

0:01:320:01:35

But, we've given away the jackpot two shows in a row now.

0:01:350:01:38

-Can we make it three in a row?

-It'd be nice.

0:01:380:01:40

And also, I notice how Leeds-heavy we are.

0:01:400:01:42

-Yes.

-Aren't we? I think we're three-eighths Leeds.

0:01:420:01:45

-Yeah.

-It might be our biggest-ever Leeds ratio.

0:01:450:01:49

It's something, isn't it?

0:01:490:01:50

What is that, almost 38% Leeds?

0:01:500:01:53

-Something like that, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:01:530:01:56

-It's a lot of Leeds.

-It's a lot of Leeds.

0:01:560:01:58

More Leeds than a dog shop.

0:01:580:01:59

No!

0:01:590:02:01

More Leeds than a pet shop.

0:02:010:02:03

Ah, very nice!

0:02:030:02:04

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:02:040:02:06

Now, Johnny and Ben won the jackpot last time,

0:02:060:02:09

so today's jackpot starts off at £1,000.

0:02:090:02:12

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

0:02:120:02:14

OK, remember, the pair with the highest score

0:02:200:02:22

at the end of each round will be eliminated,

0:02:220:02:24

so do everything you can to make sure

0:02:240:02:26

that your scores are nice and low.

0:02:260:02:28

Our first category today is...

0:02:280:02:32

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

0:02:330:02:36

who's going to go second?

0:02:360:02:38

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

0:02:380:02:40

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:430:02:45

-Sitcom characters. Richard.

-On each pass,

0:02:490:02:52

we'll show you the names of seven different sitcom characters.

0:02:520:02:54

We need the names of the actors who played these characters, please.

0:02:540:02:57

There will be 14 in all to have a go at home, good luck.

0:02:570:02:59

So, who played these sitcom characters?

0:02:590:03:02

We have got...

0:03:020:03:03

I'll read those all again.

0:03:220:03:24

There we are. Linsey, a warm welcome to Pointless, here from Dunfermline.

0:03:400:03:45

-What do you do, Linsey?

-I'm a chartered accountant,

0:03:450:03:47

but I'm currently on maternity leave.

0:03:470:03:49

-Oh, that's nice.

-Yes.

-How much longer have you got on your leave?

0:03:490:03:51

-Three weeks.

-Ah.

-Yes.

0:03:510:03:54

What's that going to be like, going back?

0:03:540:03:56

I hate to think! No offence to people from my work, but...!

0:03:560:03:59

No, lovely to do that, but it's not the same as being at home.

0:03:590:04:02

And your baby is how old now?

0:04:020:04:04

-She's nine months.

-Nine months, that's lovely.

0:04:040:04:06

-What's she called?

-Eva.

0:04:060:04:07

Eva. She won't know, obviously, but Eva...

0:04:070:04:09

-When she watches it on Challenge, she will!

-Yes!

0:04:090:04:12

-When she graduates and she's watching this on Challenge.

-Yeah.

0:04:120:04:15

And what have you been doing,

0:04:150:04:17

obviously apart from the heavy maternity duties,

0:04:170:04:20

with your maternity leave?

0:04:200:04:21

Has there been time for any other fun?

0:04:210:04:23

-Well, maternity leave is fun, just looking after Eva.

-Exactly.

0:04:230:04:26

You know, going to lots of baby groups,

0:04:260:04:28

coffee mornings, you know.

0:04:280:04:30

Very good indeed. Now, Linsey, what would you like to go for

0:04:300:04:32

on our board of sitcom characters?

0:04:320:04:34

Sorry, Dale. I'm just going to have to guess at one.

0:04:360:04:40

I don't know any!

0:04:400:04:41

Well, you've got a nice clue there, with the initials,

0:04:410:04:44

so your guess can be shaped by those.

0:04:440:04:47

Erm...I don't know.

0:04:470:04:49

Maybe I should just go for Sorry,

0:04:490:04:51

cos I am sorry!

0:04:510:04:53

Timothy Lumsden, let's say...

0:04:530:04:56

Richard Cummings.

0:04:570:04:59

The wonderful Richard Cummings.

0:04:590:05:01

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

0:05:010:05:03

said Richard Cummings.

0:05:030:05:05

No, I'm afraid...

0:05:080:05:10

I'm so sorry, Linsey, an incorrect answer there,

0:05:100:05:12

scoring you 100 points.

0:05:120:05:13

Sorry, Linsey. Imagine if that had been right!

0:05:130:05:16

-Denise.

-Hello.

0:05:180:05:20

Welcome back to Pointless.

0:05:200:05:21

Oh, I'm so sorry last time...

0:05:210:05:23

I know, I feel a fool.

0:05:230:05:25

No, no! Well, it was unfortunate, very unfortunate,

0:05:250:05:28

easy mistake to make, but costly.

0:05:280:05:30

Remind us what you do, Denise.

0:05:300:05:32

I'm a pension analyst, I work for a small firm in Wetherby,

0:05:320:05:35

who provides advice for couples who are going through divorce,

0:05:350:05:38

on how to settle their pension assets.

0:05:380:05:40

There we are. And what are your hobbies, Denise?

0:05:400:05:42

I like going running occasionally, and I do a lot of reading.

0:05:420:05:47

I set up a book group about ten years ago,

0:05:470:05:50

and we meet once a month.

0:05:500:05:51

See, that's good. So, 12 books a year, minimum, you can guarantee.

0:05:510:05:55

-Well, probably about nine books a year.

-OK.

0:05:550:05:58

Now, Denise, what would you like to go for?

0:05:580:06:00

-I know two or three of these.

-Yes.

-It's just trying to decide

0:06:000:06:02

which one is going to be the best answer to give.

0:06:020:06:05

I'm going to go for Susan Harper, and Zoe Wanamaker.

0:06:050:06:09

Zoe Wanamaker, says Denise, for Susan Harper.

0:06:090:06:11

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

0:06:110:06:14

It's right. Well, you've already beaten our high score.

0:06:170:06:20

Zoe Wanamaker ends up at 45.

0:06:200:06:24

Well played. She also plays

0:06:240:06:26

Lady Cassandra in Doctor Who, amongst many, many other things.

0:06:260:06:29

For all those many book groups out there, in the last year,

0:06:290:06:31

what book would you recommend for a book group?

0:06:310:06:34

My favourite book has been The Cellist of Sarajevo,

0:06:340:06:37

by Steven Galloway.

0:06:370:06:39

There you go. A straight answer to a straight question.

0:06:390:06:42

-The Cellist of Sarajevo.

-By Steven Galloway.

0:06:420:06:45

There we are.

0:06:450:06:46

-Now, Laura.

-Hi.

-Welcome to Pointless.

-Thank you.

0:06:460:06:48

Good to have you here. What do you do, Laura?

0:06:480:06:50

-I'm a paediatrician.

-A paediatrician.

0:06:500:06:52

-And where are you a paediatrician?

-In Gloucester.

0:06:520:06:54

In Gloucester - very nice indeed.

0:06:540:06:56

What are your interests, Laura?

0:06:560:06:57

I'm a bit time-poor, cos I have a young family as well,

0:06:570:07:01

but I'm embracing a midlife crisis and doing lots of exercise,

0:07:010:07:04

and triathloning, and stuff.

0:07:040:07:06

Wow. Wow.

0:07:060:07:08

Small triathlons.

0:07:080:07:09

Well, still, it's triathlon.

0:07:090:07:10

-That's what it is.

-Still three things.

0:07:100:07:12

How many triathlons a year do you do? Just the one?

0:07:120:07:15

A year... Could we talk about, yeah, a decade?

0:07:150:07:18

-A decade?

-I've done one this year.

-There we are, good.

0:07:180:07:22

Perfect. And are you going to be doing more?

0:07:220:07:24

-I have another one planned, for the autumn.

-Oh, Laura.

0:07:240:07:27

Excellent, good. Well, good for you.

0:07:270:07:29

Now, what are you liking on this board?

0:07:290:07:31

I know an answer, so that's...

0:07:310:07:35

-That's a start!

-Yeah.

0:07:350:07:37

I'm going to say Sorry,

0:07:370:07:39

and I'm going to say

0:07:390:07:40

Ronnie Corbett.

0:07:400:07:41

That other great RC, Ronnie Corbett.

0:07:410:07:43

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

0:07:430:07:46

55 for Ronnie Corbett.

0:07:520:07:54

When Ronnie Corbett was doing his National Service,

0:07:570:08:00

he was the shortest commissioned officer in the RAF.

0:08:000:08:02

The wonderful Ronnie Corbett.

0:08:020:08:04

Lovely Ronnie Corbett. Yeah.

0:08:040:08:07

There we are. Greg.

0:08:070:08:08

Welcome to Pointless.

0:08:080:08:10

Good to have you here. What do you do, Greg?

0:08:100:08:12

I'm a civil servant, I work in IT.

0:08:120:08:14

In IT, in the civil service, in Leeds?

0:08:140:08:16

In Leeds, yes, in Quarry House.

0:08:160:08:18

And what do you do, aside from that?

0:08:180:08:20

What else do you like to get up to?

0:08:200:08:22

Ten-pin bowling is my main hobby. I've been doing it...

0:08:220:08:25

I started it when I was a student, and then carried on.

0:08:250:08:28

-A lot of wasted years in a bowling alley.

-Very good.

0:08:280:08:30

-I don't know, maybe not wasted.

-Maybe not.

-Maybe not.

0:08:300:08:33

How many pairs bowling shoes do you own, Greg? Just the one?

0:08:330:08:36

-No, two.

-Oh, two.

0:08:360:08:38

What decides which pair you wear?

0:08:380:08:40

I tend to stick with one pair,

0:08:400:08:42

but you can change the heels and the soles as well.

0:08:420:08:44

So while one's at the menders...

0:08:440:08:46

-Yes, you can put different soles and heels.

-Very smart.

0:08:460:08:49

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

0:08:490:08:51

and fill in all our blanks for us, you'd be mighty welcome.

0:08:510:08:54

OK. Edmund Blackadder is Rowan Atkinson.

0:08:540:08:57

Ruth Jones is Frances de la Tour.

0:08:570:08:59

Don't know Howard Moon.

0:08:590:09:01

Bill Porter, I don't know.

0:09:010:09:03

I'm going to go with Penny Warrender,

0:09:030:09:05

which is Jan Francis.

0:09:050:09:07

Jan Francis, says Greg.

0:09:070:09:09

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

0:09:090:09:11

It's right. Well, 45 is our low score, and you pass it.

0:09:150:09:19

Look at that, down we go, Jan Francis.

0:09:190:09:21

Down to 16 - very well done indeed, Greg.

0:09:210:09:24

Best score of the round so far.

0:09:240:09:25

Very nicely played, Greg.

0:09:250:09:28

You filled in a few of those nicely.

0:09:280:09:31

You were quite right about Rowan Atkinson.

0:09:310:09:34

Rowan Atkinson would have scored you 61.

0:09:340:09:38

Frances de la Tour, you're right as well.

0:09:380:09:40

She would have scored 39.

0:09:400:09:42

And then one of our contemporaries, JB.

0:09:430:09:45

-Julian Barratt.

-Julian Barratt.

0:09:450:09:47

He would have scored 3, best answer on the board.

0:09:470:09:49

And Bill Porter -

0:09:490:09:51

the first name is confusing,

0:09:510:09:52

cos it's Belinda Lang.

0:09:520:09:54

The wonderful Belinda Lang. She would have scored you 6 points.

0:09:540:09:57

Thank you. We're halfway through the round.

0:09:570:09:59

Let's look at those scores. 16, the best score of the pass.

0:09:590:10:01

Well done, Greg. Then we travel up to 45, where we find Denise and Jo.

0:10:010:10:05

55, Laura and Kate.

0:10:050:10:06

Then 100, Linsey and Dale.

0:10:060:10:10

Richard Cummings not helping you out, there.

0:10:100:10:13

Dale... Yes. Well, I mean, who knows?

0:10:130:10:14

You're not terrifyingly out in front, but you are in front.

0:10:140:10:17

So a nice, low score from you, Dale,

0:10:170:10:19

well, you'll know by the time we get to you what you can do.

0:10:190:10:21

Best of luck. We'll come back down the line now.

0:10:210:10:23

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:10:230:10:25

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

0:10:280:10:31

and here they come.

0:10:310:10:33

We are looking for the actors who played these people.

0:10:330:10:35

I'll read those one last time.

0:10:520:10:54

Sean, welcome.

0:11:100:11:12

Great shirt, Sean, by the way.

0:11:120:11:13

-Thank you very much!

-What do you do, Sean?

0:11:130:11:15

I'm a credit control manager.

0:11:150:11:16

Where do you control credit, Sean?

0:11:160:11:19

The other companies that owe the company I work for money,

0:11:190:11:22

I chase them up, and politely ask them to pay.

0:11:220:11:25

That's quite tough, isn't it?

0:11:250:11:27

That's not a fun way to spend a Monday morning, surely.

0:11:270:11:29

-Absolutely.

-Sean, what do you like getting up to,

0:11:290:11:32

when you stop managing credit control?

0:11:320:11:34

I'm a ten-pin bowler as well,

0:11:340:11:36

bowl in the same league team as Greg, so...

0:11:360:11:37

Hence the shirts? Is that ten-pin bowling wear?

0:11:370:11:40

-I've been known to wear this sort of shirt at a tournament.

-Very good.

0:11:400:11:44

Do you have your name written on the back of a shirt?

0:11:440:11:47

-I tend not to. I'm not that flash!

-OK, OK, fair enough.

0:11:470:11:50

Now, Sean, you are the first person to have this board.

0:11:500:11:53

Dive in, help yourself,

0:11:530:11:54

let's see if we can find a nice, low-scoring answer.

0:11:540:11:57

If you can score less than 83, you're home and dry.

0:11:570:12:00

Greg set me up nicely with a great first answer,

0:12:000:12:03

so I'm going to go for

0:12:030:12:04

Private Frank Pike, Ian Lavender.

0:12:040:12:06

Ian Lavender, says Sean. Here's your red line -

0:12:060:12:08

if you can get below this with Ian Lavender, you're into Round Two.

0:12:080:12:12

Let's see how many people said Ian Lavender.

0:12:120:12:14

It's right - and you're through, very well done.

0:12:170:12:19

40.

0:12:210:12:22

Taking your total up to 56.

0:12:220:12:25

Safe and sound. When Ian Lavender appeared on Celebrity Mastermind,

0:12:250:12:29

Rick Wakeman was also on, and when John Humphrys

0:12:290:12:31

said to Ian Lavender, when he asked him his name,

0:12:310:12:33

Rick Wakeman shouted out, "Don't tell him, Pike!"

0:12:330:12:35

LAUGHTER

0:12:350:12:37

That's good. Thank you very much indeed.

0:12:370:12:39

-Kate.

-Yeah.

-There you are, welcome to Pointless,

0:12:390:12:42

great to have you here.

0:12:420:12:43

-What do you do, Kate?

-I'm a hospital doctor.

0:12:430:12:45

-What kind of hospital doctor?

-Lungs.

0:12:450:12:47

Respiratory, but I specialise in lungs.

0:12:470:12:49

I see, very good. And where do you do that?

0:12:490:12:50

In mid-Yorkshire, so around Wakefield and Dewsbury.

0:12:500:12:54

I see, and how do you and Laura know each other?

0:12:540:12:56

Laura went to university with my husband.

0:12:560:12:59

-Is he also a medic?

-He is, yeah.

0:12:590:13:01

He's backstage with my baby at the moment.

0:13:010:13:03

-Aw!

-He's not very good at quizzes, so we left him out.

0:13:030:13:06

Hang on, if he'd been good at quizzes,

0:13:060:13:08

you'd have had him in here...?

0:13:080:13:09

-She'd have had him, instead of me.

-Oh, I see what you mean. Oh, I see.

0:13:090:13:12

I thought there was going to be some sort of cougher in the audience!

0:13:120:13:16

Now, what are your interests, Kate, aside from medicine?

0:13:160:13:19

I haven't done very much, cos I only had a baby 11 weeks ago,

0:13:190:13:21

so I'm still very much trying to leave the house.

0:13:210:13:24

We really should have a creche here, shouldn't we?

0:13:240:13:26

It makes a lot of sense.

0:13:260:13:28

I used to play netball for a local team in a league,

0:13:280:13:31

and I've just started back again last week.

0:13:310:13:33

I like doing some knitting, doing some crafty things.

0:13:330:13:36

I'm not very good, but I like to do that.

0:13:360:13:38

And reading...anything, really. Mostly crime novels, I read.

0:13:380:13:41

Excellent, excellent.

0:13:410:13:43

OK - now, Kate, there you are on 55.

0:13:430:13:45

44 or less keeps you in the game.

0:13:450:13:47

I think I'm going to go for

0:13:470:13:49

Yvette Carte-Blanche from 'Allo 'Allo

0:13:490:13:51

as Vicki Michelle.

0:13:510:13:52

Vicki Michelle says Kate. Here is your red line.

0:13:520:13:54

Get below that with Vicki Michelle, and you're into Round Two.

0:13:540:13:57

How many people said it? Is it right?

0:13:570:13:59

It is right.

0:14:010:14:02

Very well done, you are through to the next round.

0:14:050:14:08

Down you go to 16, great score there,

0:14:080:14:10

taking your total up to 71.

0:14:100:14:14

Good work, Kate. I have to say,

0:14:140:14:15

that's the first time I've ever seen Yvette's surname,

0:14:150:14:17

I was not aware her surname was Carte-Blanche.

0:14:170:14:19

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:14:190:14:21

Now then, Jo, there we are.

0:14:210:14:23

You are on 45.

0:14:230:14:25

You have to score 54 to stay in the game.

0:14:250:14:27

Jo, remind us what you do.

0:14:270:14:28

My husband and I have a business selling industrial label printers.

0:14:280:14:33

Wonderful, wonderful.

0:14:330:14:35

Labels, from everything from the very small, to the...

0:14:350:14:37

-The very big.

-..absolutely enormous.

0:14:370:14:39

And your interests, Jo?

0:14:390:14:40

I like going to anything live, really.

0:14:400:14:43

So, live comedy, live music, theatre...

0:14:430:14:47

Yeah. And I go to the gym -

0:14:470:14:49

don't enjoy it, but I do go to the gym as well.

0:14:490:14:51

Very good indeed. Now, Jo, as I say, 54 is your target.

0:14:510:14:55

What would you like to go for?

0:14:550:14:56

Erm...I only know a couple,

0:14:560:14:59

and I think they're probably going to be high,

0:14:590:15:01

so I'm just going to have to go with it, I think, and go...

0:15:010:15:06

Norman Stanley Fletcher, Ronnie Barker.

0:15:060:15:09

Ronnie Barker, says Jo.

0:15:090:15:10

Here's your red line - get below this with Ronnie Barker,

0:15:100:15:13

and you are into Round Two.

0:15:130:15:14

Let's see if you can.

0:15:140:15:16

It's right.

0:15:190:15:20

68.

0:15:230:15:24

A high score there for Ronnie Barker,

0:15:240:15:26

taking your total up to 113.

0:15:260:15:28

Yeah, reuniting The Two Ronnies, there.

0:15:280:15:30

There's a pub in Oxford called The Four Candles, in his honour.

0:15:300:15:33

Oh, yes, yeah.

0:15:330:15:34

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:15:340:15:36

Now, Dale, you've been handed a lifeline there -

0:15:360:15:39

a pretty meagre one, but one nonetheless.

0:15:390:15:42

-Yeah.

-Should you score 12 or less,

0:15:420:15:44

you will go through to the next round.

0:15:440:15:46

Dale, tell me, what do you do?

0:15:460:15:48

Charity fundraiser. Fundraising manager.

0:15:480:15:50

Very good. For one particular charity?

0:15:500:15:52

-Yes.

-So you work absolutely for that charity?

0:15:520:15:55

-Yeah.

-Good. What is the charity, can I ask?

0:15:550:15:57

Canine Partners.

0:15:570:15:58

So, we train assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities.

0:15:580:16:02

-Oh, that's nice.

-Yeah.

0:16:020:16:03

Do you ever get to see the dogs,

0:16:030:16:05

and participate in some of their training?

0:16:050:16:07

Yeah. Well, I dare not train them, cos I'd ruin it,

0:16:070:16:09

cos, you know...I just want to play with them.

0:16:090:16:11

Ah! You're allowed to do that, surely?

0:16:110:16:13

It's got to be part of a dog's training.

0:16:130:16:15

I guess, yeah. Yeah. When the trainers aren't looking, yeah.

0:16:150:16:18

How many dogs does Canine Partners look after?

0:16:180:16:20

How many do you have going through your scheme?

0:16:200:16:22

Close to around about 400 partnerships in the UK, now.

0:16:220:16:25

-Wow.

-Yeah. Growing all the time.

-Fantastic.

0:16:250:16:28

Growing all the time, good for you.

0:16:280:16:30

Well, 100 is your score, 12 is what you need.

0:16:300:16:33

Do you fancy talking us through the board, Dale?

0:16:330:16:35

Well, I appreciate the offer, but...!

0:16:350:16:37

LAUGHTER

0:16:370:16:39

-You don't have to.

-There's literally only one on there that I know.

0:16:390:16:42

I do watch Peep Show, and Super Hans is a great character,

0:16:420:16:46

but I do not know the name of the actor.

0:16:460:16:48

Pingu, I don't know.

0:16:480:16:49

Linda la Hughes, I don't know, so...

0:16:490:16:51

Edina Monsoon is Jennifer Saunders.

0:16:510:16:55

That's the answer you're going to go for?

0:16:550:16:56

Well, yeah, it's the only one I've got.

0:16:560:16:58

OK. Well, let's see if that scores 12.

0:16:580:17:01

Jennifer Saunders, how many of our 100 people said it? There's your red line.

0:17:010:17:04

It's right.

0:17:070:17:08

52, I'm afraid, Dale.

0:17:100:17:12

There's your answer. 152 is your total.

0:17:120:17:14

Yeah, sorry, Dale. At least you've got a cool job!

0:17:170:17:19

That would make up for it, wouldn't it?

0:17:190:17:21

It sounds like the best job in the world.

0:17:210:17:24

There's a couple of answers that would've won it for you.

0:17:240:17:26

Not the bottom one, which is...

0:17:260:17:28

Kathy Burke.

0:17:280:17:30

..the wonderful Kathy Burke.

0:17:300:17:31

That would have scored you 24.

0:17:310:17:33

But the other two would.

0:17:330:17:34

Now, BW, a slightly higher scorer,

0:17:340:17:36

much more famous now than then,

0:17:360:17:38

cos he's in the Bond movies.

0:17:380:17:40

-Ben Whishaw.

-Wow.

-Would have scored you 2 points.

0:17:400:17:43

And Super Hans, do you know who played Super Hans?

0:17:430:17:45

As you say, brilliant character.

0:17:450:17:47

He's played by the equally brilliant Matt King.

0:17:470:17:50

That would have scored you 1 point,

0:17:500:17:51

so very well done if you said that at home.

0:17:510:17:53

Thank you very much indeed, Richard. We're at the end of our first round.

0:17:530:17:56

The pair we have to say goodbye to, with a high score of 152,

0:17:560:18:00

Dale and Linsey.

0:18:000:18:01

Sorry, far too soon to be sending you home,

0:18:010:18:03

but we'll see you next time, I'm sure you'll get much further.

0:18:030:18:06

-Meantime, thank you, Dale and Linsey.

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:18:060:18:09

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

0:18:110:18:14

And three pairs remain.

0:18:190:18:20

At the end of this round, we'll have to say goodbye to another pair

0:18:200:18:23

in time for our head-to-head round.

0:18:230:18:25

I don't know which pair that is going to be,

0:18:250:18:27

but very well done, Greg and Kate,

0:18:270:18:29

for your lovely low-scoring answers in that last round.

0:18:290:18:32

Best of luck to all three pairs for Round Two.

0:18:320:18:34

Our category for Round Two today is...

0:18:340:18:36

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

0:18:390:18:42

who's going to go second?

0:18:420:18:43

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

0:18:430:18:47

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

0:18:500:18:52

We gave 100 people 100 seconds

0:18:520:18:54

to name as many members of the African Union.

0:18:540:18:59

Members of the African Union - Richard.

0:19:000:19:02

We're looking for any country that's a member of the African Union, as of February 2016.

0:19:020:19:06

The African Union is essentially all African countries,

0:19:060:19:08

apart from Morocco and Central African Republic.

0:19:080:19:11

As always, by country, we mean a sovereign state

0:19:110:19:13

that's a member of the UN in its own right.

0:19:130:19:15

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:19:150:19:18

We're looking for any country that's a member of the African Union.

0:19:180:19:21

So, Jo.

0:19:210:19:23

A bit nervous about this one.

0:19:230:19:26

I'm going to go Djibouti.

0:19:260:19:28

Djibouti, says Jo. Let's see if it's right.

0:19:280:19:30

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

0:19:300:19:33

It is right.

0:19:360:19:37

Down it goes. I think it's a good answer, Jo.

0:19:400:19:43

It's a very good answer - 6.

0:19:430:19:45

Very well done - 6 for Djibouti.

0:19:450:19:48

Well played.

0:19:480:19:50

They celebrate Christmas in Djibouti on January 7th.

0:19:500:19:52

So if you want two lots of presents, you want to fly over in-between.

0:19:520:19:56

That's nice.

0:19:560:19:58

A sort of Epiphany Christmas.

0:19:580:19:59

A lot of Orthodox Christian churches have it on 7th January.

0:19:590:20:02

But they tend to be a bit more religious about it.

0:20:020:20:05

There we are. Thank you very much, Richard.

0:20:050:20:07

Now then, Kate. What would you like to go for?

0:20:070:20:10

I think I'm going to go for Guinea-Bissau.

0:20:100:20:12

Guinea-Bissau, says Kate. Let's see if that's right,

0:20:120:20:15

let's see how many of our 100 people said Guinea-Bissau.

0:20:150:20:18

It's another great answer. Look at that.

0:20:260:20:28

Down to 2 for Guinea-Bissau. Very well done indeed, Kate.

0:20:280:20:31

Everybody playing well.

0:20:340:20:35

Yeah, formerly under the rule of Portugal,

0:20:350:20:37

gained independence in 1974.

0:20:370:20:39

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:20:390:20:41

Now, Sean.

0:20:410:20:43

I think I'm going to have to take a bit of a gamble,

0:20:430:20:45

some really low scores there.

0:20:450:20:46

I'm going to try Comoros.

0:20:460:20:48

Comoros, says Sean.

0:20:480:20:50

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

0:20:500:20:52

It's right - 6 is our high score.

0:20:540:20:57

2 is our low score.

0:20:570:20:58

Comoros...

0:20:580:21:00

..zips past them both.

0:21:020:21:03

A pointless answer.

0:21:030:21:04

Very well done on the far podium there.

0:21:040:21:06

That adds £250 to today's jackpot, taking the total up to £1,250,

0:21:060:21:11

and it scores you nothing.

0:21:110:21:12

Very well done indeed, Sean.

0:21:120:21:14

Well, this is very classy, everybody. Very well done.

0:21:140:21:16

It's very rare you have a round that starts with Djibouti and it's the worst answer.

0:21:160:21:20

That's all I'll say. Very impressive stuff.

0:21:200:21:22

Yeah, a volcanic archipelago, the Comoros.

0:21:220:21:24

Called the Perfumed Islands, very beautiful,

0:21:240:21:27

and lots of very perfumed plantlife.

0:21:270:21:28

-And they smell lovely.

-They smell lovely.

-Mmm.

0:21:280:21:31

You always know when you're flying over the Comoros.

0:21:310:21:34

-HE SNIFFS

-Oh, lovely.

-Nice. Very nice.

0:21:340:21:36

What do Morocco and Central African Republic

0:21:360:21:39

need to do to become part of the union?

0:21:390:21:42

Morocco don't want to be...

0:21:420:21:44

-Wow!

-..after a falling out

0:21:440:21:46

because one of the other countries

0:21:460:21:47

borrowed their lawn mower and did not return it.

0:21:470:21:51

Were they once part of it and there was a Mexit?

0:21:510:21:53

It's because there was a dispute about another nation,

0:21:530:21:58

which Morocco were having none of.

0:21:580:21:59

And our friends in the Central African Republic,

0:21:590:22:01

equally, they are currently...

0:22:010:22:03

Their membership is in abatement due to...

0:22:030:22:06

Haven't paid library fines.

0:22:060:22:08

OK. Thank you very much indeed.

0:22:080:22:10

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

0:22:100:22:12

Nothing was the best score of that round.

0:22:120:22:14

Very well done, Sean.

0:22:140:22:16

Sean and Greg are acing it at the moment.

0:22:160:22:17

Then on 2, we find Kate and Laura.

0:22:170:22:19

6 is where we find Jo and Denise.

0:22:190:22:20

Denise, you're not way ahead, but something sort of pointless,

0:22:200:22:23

in that sort of direction,

0:22:230:22:26

would be mighty helpful at this stage.

0:22:260:22:28

Good luck. We'll come back down the line now.

0:22:280:22:30

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:22:300:22:33

So, Greg, we are looking for countries that are members

0:22:350:22:38

of the African Union.

0:22:380:22:40

I'm going to go with South Sudan.

0:22:400:22:43

South Sudan, says Greg.

0:22:430:22:45

OK, if you can score five or less with this, you are home and dry.

0:22:450:22:48

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

0:22:480:22:51

There is your red line.

0:22:510:22:53

It's right.

0:22:530:22:54

Nearly. 7 for South Sudan.

0:22:590:23:02

Taking your total up to seven.

0:23:020:23:05

It became an independent nation on July 9th, 2011.

0:23:050:23:09

The first baby born on that day was named Independence.

0:23:090:23:12

Which is quite sweet.

0:23:120:23:13

It's nice if you shorten it to Indy.

0:23:130:23:15

-I think so, yes.

-Independence is a bit much.

0:23:150:23:18

-Pendy.

-No... Pendo.

0:23:180:23:20

-No.

-Denty.

0:23:200:23:21

-Indy is nice.

-That'll do.

0:23:210:23:24

OK. Now, Laura...

0:23:240:23:25

-Mm.

-Laura, what are you going to go for?

0:23:250:23:29

If you can possibly score four or less,

0:23:290:23:31

you are definitely through.

0:23:310:23:33

No pressure. This should be a gift, but the stakes are quite high.

0:23:330:23:37

I'm going to go for - I might mispronounce it...

0:23:370:23:40

But I'm going to go for Lesotho.

0:23:400:23:41

-Maybe Le-so-to.

-Lesotho. Call it what you like.

0:23:410:23:45

-Le-su-tu, I'm going to say.

-You say that.

0:23:450:23:46

But you call it what you like.

0:23:460:23:48

There's your red line. Get below that with Lesotho, you are through to the next round.

0:23:480:23:52

It is right.

0:23:540:23:56

13 for Lesotho,

0:24:000:24:03

taking your total up to 15.

0:24:030:24:05

Yeah - the Lesotho Promise is the 15th biggest diamond of all time.

0:24:060:24:11

Sold for £7 million.

0:24:110:24:13

-The Lesotho Promise.

-Promise. It's the size of a golf ball.

0:24:130:24:17

Wow! Sounds like a nightclub.

0:24:170:24:18

RICHARD LAUGHS

0:24:180:24:20

Kim Kardashian bought it for her dog.

0:24:200:24:23

-ALEXANDER LAUGHS

-She didn't really.

0:24:230:24:25

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:24:250:24:27

Now, Denise.

0:24:270:24:29

-Mm.

-Denise.

0:24:290:24:31

I'm going to have to go big or go home, aren't I?

0:24:310:24:34

We are running out of low-scoring answers.

0:24:340:24:36

Well, there will be some in there. What do you have to score?

0:24:360:24:39

Actually, you've been helped out a little bit by Laura there.

0:24:390:24:42

8 or less keeps you in the game. 8 or less.

0:24:420:24:44

What I'm struggling is whether my answer is actually a correct answer in the first place.

0:24:440:24:48

I'm going to say Equatorial Guinea.

0:24:480:24:51

Equatorial Guinea, says Denise. Here is your red line.

0:24:510:24:55

Is that going to keep you in the game, I wonder?

0:24:550:24:56

Let's find out - how many people said Equatorial Guinea?

0:24:560:24:59

You've done it. And it's scores you 1.

0:25:080:25:10

Very well done indeed.

0:25:100:25:11

Takes your total to seven.

0:25:110:25:13

You are equalling Greg and Sean

0:25:130:25:15

over there on the far podium.

0:25:150:25:16

-Very well done.

-Very well played, everyone.

0:25:160:25:18

A terrific round. Very unlucky to be going home

0:25:180:25:21

with 15 points on the board as well.

0:25:210:25:22

I'll go through some of the lower scorers on this one.

0:25:220:25:25

You'd have got 6 points for Swaziland or Madagascar.

0:25:250:25:28

4 points for Gabon, Burkina Faso, Rwanda.

0:25:280:25:31

3 for Burundi, Benin, Mauritania.

0:25:310:25:34

2 points for Eritrea and Guinea.

0:25:340:25:36

1 point for Togo, Cape Verde.

0:25:360:25:38

And here are the pointless answers.

0:25:380:25:40

We've already heard one, the Comoros.

0:25:400:25:42

There's three more.

0:25:420:25:45

Mauritius, Sao Tome and Principe,

0:25:450:25:48

and the Seychelles.

0:25:480:25:50

They were the pointless answers.

0:25:500:25:51

Let's take a look at the biggest scorers,

0:25:510:25:53

the ones that most of our 100 people mentioned online.

0:25:530:25:56

47 of our 100 said Nigeria.

0:25:580:26:01

48 said Kenya

0:26:010:26:03

and South Africa at the top there on 59.

0:26:030:26:05

Thank you very much indeed, Richard. At the end of our second round,

0:26:050:26:08

the pair we have to send home,

0:26:080:26:09

with their very low high score of 15,

0:26:090:26:11

I'm afraid, is Laura and Kate.

0:26:110:26:13

But, yeah, great answers from you in that round.

0:26:130:26:16

They just happened to be very slightly higher-scoring than the other great answers.

0:26:160:26:19

We'll see you again, I'm sure you'll go much further.

0:26:190:26:22

Meantime, thank you very much, Laura and Kate.

0:26:220:26:24

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

0:26:270:26:30

Congratulations, Greg and Sean, Jo and Denise.

0:26:350:26:37

You are now one step closer to the final

0:26:370:26:39

and a chance to play for that jackpot,

0:26:390:26:41

which currently stands at £1,250.

0:26:410:26:45

Well, here we are, in the head-to-head,

0:26:450:26:46

which means you are allowed to confer before you give your answers.

0:26:460:26:50

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

0:26:500:26:53

Now, Jo and Denise, I think this is right and fitting,

0:26:530:26:55

it is neat and proper, that you are here

0:26:550:26:57

in the head-to-head round,

0:26:570:26:58

having been short-changed in the last show.

0:26:580:27:00

So that's good, but you are up against Greg and Sean,

0:27:000:27:02

who have given us our only pointless answer this show.

0:27:020:27:05

So you know the kind of calibre of your rivals.

0:27:050:27:09

Yes, very best of luck to both pairs.

0:27:090:27:10

Let's play the head-to-head.

0:27:100:27:12

Here is your first question.

0:27:170:27:19

And it concerns...

0:27:190:27:21

-Richard.

-We are going to show you five pictures now of famous Evas.

0:27:240:27:28

We just need you to tell us the most obscure.

0:27:280:27:30

Dale and Lindsey would have loved this.

0:27:300:27:32

-Wouldn't they?

-That's a shame.

-They would have loved this.

0:27:320:27:35

Oh, well. OK.

0:27:350:27:37

Famous Evas - here they are. We have five of them.

0:27:370:27:40

There we are. Five famous Evas.

0:28:110:28:14

Greg and Sean, you're our low scorers, so you will go first.

0:28:140:28:16

Feel free to confer.

0:28:160:28:18

THEY WHISPER

0:28:180:28:20

-WHISPERING:

-Maybe Ava Gardner, his wife...

0:28:220:28:25

We are going to go with A, Ava Gardner.

0:28:300:28:33

Ava Gardner, say Greg and Sean.

0:28:330:28:36

Now, Jo and Denise, it's over to you.

0:28:360:28:38

Do you want to talk us through all those remaining ones?

0:28:380:28:41

I don't, but Denise will do.

0:28:410:28:43

We don't know who A was.

0:28:430:28:45

I think B might be Eva Mendes.

0:28:450:28:48

C could be Eva Peron.

0:28:480:28:50

D, I don't know.

0:28:500:28:52

E is Eva Longoria, I think,

0:28:520:28:54

but I'm not sure how you pronounce her surname.

0:28:540:28:56

Which one do you want to go for?

0:28:560:28:59

I think...I think we'll go for B, Eva Mendes.

0:28:590:29:03

Eva Mendes.

0:29:030:29:04

So, we have Ava Gardner and we have Eva Mendes.

0:29:040:29:08

Greg and Sean said Ava Gardner for A. Let's see if that's right,

0:29:080:29:11

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

0:29:110:29:14

Ooh!

0:29:180:29:19

Not Ava Gardner.

0:29:190:29:21

Which means, Jo and Denise, you only have to be correct

0:29:210:29:23

with Eva Mendes for B and you will win this question.

0:29:230:29:27

Let's see if you are correct.

0:29:270:29:29

You are.

0:29:310:29:33

It is Eva Mendes.

0:29:330:29:36

And that's not a bad score at all.

0:29:360:29:37

Down it goes to 18. Very well done indeed,

0:29:370:29:39

but most importantly, it was right, which means you win that question.

0:29:390:29:42

After one question, you are up 1-0.

0:29:420:29:44

Very well played.

0:29:440:29:45

The first one is Eva Marie Saint,

0:29:450:29:48

is A.

0:29:480:29:49

She would have scored you 5 points.

0:29:490:29:51

Would have been a terrific answer.

0:29:510:29:54

C, you're right, is Eva Peron.

0:29:540:29:56

Evita, she would have scored you 41.

0:29:570:29:59

D is the Czech model, Eva Herzigova.

0:30:000:30:05

Would have scored 2 points.

0:30:050:30:06

And you were right about E as well,

0:30:060:30:09

that's Eva Longoria.

0:30:090:30:10

Eva Longoria. Would have scored you 30.

0:30:100:30:13

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

0:30:130:30:15

Now then, Greg and Sean, you have to win this one to stay in the game.

0:30:150:30:18

But Jo and Denise will get to answer it first.

0:30:180:30:20

So good luck. Our second question today is all about...

0:30:200:30:24

It is all about Queen.

0:30:250:30:27

Five facts, now, to clues about the famous rock band Queen.

0:30:270:30:30

Can you provide us with the most obscure answer?

0:30:300:30:33

Thanks very much indeed. Let's reveal our five clues

0:30:330:30:35

and here they come - we have got...

0:30:350:30:37

I'll read those again.

0:30:570:30:59

There we are.

0:31:160:31:17

Now, Jo and Denise will go first.

0:31:170:31:19

THEY WHISPER

0:31:190:31:22

OK, I think we are going to go for the last one

0:31:280:31:30

and say Under Pressure.

0:31:300:31:31

Under Pressure, say Jo and Denise.

0:31:310:31:33

Under Pressure. Now, Greg and Sean,

0:31:330:31:35

that puts you under some pressure as well.

0:31:350:31:38

-Now, do you want to talk us through the board?

-I'll try.

0:31:380:31:41

The first one is Freddie Mercury.

0:31:410:31:43

The debut album, we think, '72, not sure.

0:31:430:31:47

The musical is We Will Rock You.

0:31:470:31:50

I think we are going to go with the sci-fi film, Flash Gordon.

0:31:500:31:53

OK, you are going to go for Flash Gordon.

0:31:530:31:55

So, we have Under Pressure and we have Flash Gordon.

0:31:550:31:57

Jo and Denise went for Under Pressure.

0:31:570:31:59

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

0:31:590:32:02

It's right.

0:32:060:32:07

25 for Under Pressure.

0:32:110:32:13

Meanwhile, Greg and Sean have gone for Flash Gordon.

0:32:160:32:20

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

0:32:200:32:22

said Flash Gordon.

0:32:220:32:24

It's right.

0:32:280:32:29

Which of these comes out on top...?

0:32:310:32:33

Oh, 28 for Flash Gordon!

0:32:330:32:35

Wow, look at that. Under Pressure doing it for you there, Jo and Denise.

0:32:350:32:38

I said Pointless owes you one.

0:32:380:32:40

Richard said Pointless owes you one

0:32:400:32:41

and, sure enough, it is repaying its debts.

0:32:410:32:44

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

0:32:440:32:47

Yeah, that's very unlucky,

0:32:470:32:49

especially as We Will Rock You, which I would have thought

0:32:490:32:52

would've scored more, actually scores a lot fewer.

0:32:520:32:54

We Will Rock You would have scored you 12 points.

0:32:540:32:58

Would have been a terrific answer.

0:32:580:33:00

It's the longest-running show ever at the Dominion Theatre,

0:33:000:33:02

-We Will Rock You.

-Extraordinary.

0:33:020:33:04

-Have you been to see it?

-No. I didn't.

0:33:040:33:07

-It's got some good songs on it.

-Yeah, some good songs.

0:33:070:33:09

-Some good songs.

-Well, Queen songs.

0:33:090:33:11

Had Nigel Planer in it as well, which is nice.

0:33:110:33:13

Cos they play Don't Stop Me Now, which is my favourite Queen song,

0:33:130:33:16

but they just play it as a joke, where they stop them.

0:33:160:33:18

So they start by playing Don't Stop Me Now

0:33:180:33:20

and someone stops them.

0:33:200:33:22

And then they don't play the song.

0:33:220:33:24

-That's disappointing.

-That was frustrating.

0:33:240:33:26

-That is disappointing.

-Yeah, I was frustrated.

0:33:260:33:28

-There it is.

-You're right. That is one of the great songs.

0:33:280:33:31

That's even worse. That's worse than not playing it at all.

0:33:310:33:34

-No.

-Because I've got like... I've got it in my nostrils.

0:33:340:33:36

-Absolutely.

-You know? I've got a sniff of Don't Stop Me Now.

0:33:360:33:40

Now, the name of their lead singer was Freddie Mercury.

0:33:400:33:43

-Freddie Mercury.

-Yeah.

0:33:430:33:45

That would have scored you 65. Now, this is a tough one with Queen.

0:33:450:33:48

What year do you think their debut album was released?

0:33:480:33:51

Which was Night At The Opera? What was it?

0:33:510:33:53

No - the first-ever one was just called Queen.

0:33:530:33:55

-You said 1972...

-1972.

0:33:550:33:58

Jo and Denise?

0:33:580:34:00

-1970...

-1971, I think we'll guess.

0:34:000:34:04

1974.

0:34:040:34:06

So, '72, '71, '74,

0:34:060:34:10

and I will go for...

0:34:100:34:11

LAUGHTER

0:34:110:34:13

'73. '73. You were all dancing around it.

0:34:130:34:17

Would have scored you 1 point. Wasn't actually a hit until '74.

0:34:170:34:20

-But was released in '73.

-I'm going to take some glory there.

0:34:200:34:23

I'm going to take some. I'm not due it, but I'll take it.

0:34:230:34:26

No, you mustn't, because you got the wrong answer.

0:34:260:34:29

So you would have scored 100.

0:34:290:34:30

-Yeah.

-Not for the first time.

0:34:300:34:32

-No.

-No.

-Still...there we go.

0:34:320:34:35

Thank you very much. So, the pair leaving us

0:34:350:34:37

at the end of the head-to-head round, Greg and Sean,

0:34:370:34:40

our stars of the show up to this point.

0:34:400:34:42

A pointless answer we've had from you,

0:34:420:34:44

low score after low score.

0:34:440:34:45

But then Jo and Denise, the mighty Jo and Denise,

0:34:450:34:47

there was no stopping them.

0:34:470:34:49

There was just no stopping them. Now or at any time.

0:34:490:34:52

We'll have to see you next time. But that's good news.

0:34:520:34:54

Otherwise it would have been over in just one appearance

0:34:540:34:57

and that would have been one too few.

0:34:570:34:58

Thanks so much, meantime.

0:34:580:35:00

Greg and Sean, tremendous contestants.

0:35:000:35:02

But for Jo and Denise, it is now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:040:35:07

Well, congratulations, Jo and Denise.

0:35:140:35:17

You've seen off all the competition

0:35:170:35:18

-and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

-Yes!

0:35:180:35:21

You have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:35:270:35:29

At the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £1,250.

0:35:290:35:34

Well, it doesn't always happen, but it's amazing how often it does -

0:35:340:35:37

when Pointless owes, Pointless pays.

0:35:370:35:40

That's not to take away from your excellent answering skills as well.

0:35:400:35:44

You've done extremely well. 2-0 in the head-to-head.

0:35:440:35:46

There's never any argument with that.

0:35:460:35:48

And again, quite often,

0:35:480:35:50

that tends to carry people through to a very successful jackpot round.

0:35:500:35:54

So let's hope today sees that through to its fitting conclusion.

0:35:540:35:58

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

0:35:580:36:00

Any particular subjects?

0:36:000:36:01

Um...I don't know.

0:36:010:36:03

Anagrams of accountancy terms

0:36:030:36:05

was something that we quite fancied doing.

0:36:050:36:07

We always have that, don't we?

0:36:070:36:09

It comes up a lot.

0:36:090:36:11

-Premier League managers.

-Excellent.

-No...!

0:36:110:36:15

Listen, who knows? We never know what's going to come up on that board

0:36:150:36:18

but let's hope there's something you don't mind too much.

0:36:180:36:20

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

0:36:200:36:24

Post-Punk Albums, definitely not. I could do Formula 1,

0:36:310:36:34

but I don't know what they mean by "Decades of Formula 1."

0:36:340:36:36

Shades Of Red, which is a bit of a...

0:36:360:36:39

Shall we do Shades Of Red?

0:36:390:36:42

-Random?

-Yeah, Shades Of Red.

-Yeah.

-We'll do Shades Of Red.

0:36:420:36:45

Don't know what it means, but we'll do Shades Of Red.

0:36:450:36:47

Shades Of Red. I've no idea either. Let's find out together.

0:36:470:36:49

-Richard.

-Three very different questions here.

0:36:490:36:51

I have to hand it to our question writers sometimes.

0:36:510:36:54

Here are your three Shades Of Red questions.

0:36:540:36:56

We are looking for any UK Top 40 single by Maroon 5,

0:36:560:37:00

according to The Official Charts Company.

0:37:000:37:02

We are looking for any Scarlett Johansson films.

0:37:020:37:05

Or we are looking for any winners of the Claret Jug -

0:37:050:37:08

that is, anyone who has won the British Open -

0:37:080:37:10

from 1950 through to 2016.

0:37:100:37:12

So, UK Top 40 singles up to May 2016 by Maroon 5.

0:37:120:37:16

Any feature film made for cinema release, according to IMDb,

0:37:160:37:18

which stars Scarlett Johansson.

0:37:180:37:20

Or anyone who has won the British Open,

0:37:200:37:22

won the Claret Jug for winning that,

0:37:220:37:24

from 1950 all the way through to 2016.

0:37:240:37:26

-Very best of luck.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:37:260:37:29

That is what "Shades Of Red" means. That's cleared it up.

0:37:290:37:31

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

0:37:310:37:34

and all you need to win that jackpot

0:37:340:37:35

is for just one answer to be pointless.

0:37:350:37:37

I can remind you, you don't have to answer all three of those categories.

0:37:370:37:40

You can focus on whichever ones you like.

0:37:400:37:42

-Are you ready?

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Good.

0:37:420:37:44

Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock.

0:37:440:37:46

There they are. Your time starts now.

0:37:460:37:48

-Do you know any Maroon 5 singles?

-Only one.

-Which is?

0:37:480:37:51

Moves Like Jagger. I think we all know that one.

0:37:510:37:53

-Scarlett Johansson films?

-Girl With A Pearl Earring?

0:37:530:37:56

-Lost In Translation?

-And there was one...

0:37:570:38:01

I have got the Maroon 5 album, and I can't think what's on it.

0:38:010:38:05

Claret Jug winners... I think it's golf.

0:38:050:38:07

I'm not entirely sure.

0:38:070:38:09

Graeme McDowell, maybe.

0:38:090:38:12

Scarlett Johansson films...

0:38:120:38:15

Can't place her at all.

0:38:150:38:17

Blonde hair, big mouth.

0:38:170:38:19

SHE LAUGHS

0:38:190:38:21

-I think if we say Girl With A Pearl Earring...

-Yes.

0:38:230:38:26

-Can you think of any Maroon 5...?

-I just can't think of any...

0:38:260:38:30

-Scarlett...

-Oh! We Bought A Zoo.

-Was she in that?

0:38:310:38:34

She was in We Bought A Zoo, yes,

0:38:340:38:35

but I don't think that will be pointless.

0:38:350:38:37

Ten seconds left.

0:38:370:38:39

And Lost In Translation. We can do three films...

0:38:390:38:41

-Do you know any Maroon 5?

-No, I can't think of any.

0:38:410:38:44

The Other Boleyn Girl. She was in that.

0:38:450:38:48

-Let's go with that.

-OK, that is your time up.

0:38:480:38:50

Let's have your three answers.

0:38:500:38:51

I think we are going to do all Scarlett Johansson films.

0:38:510:38:54

-OK.

-We'll do The Other Boleyn Girl.

-The Other Boleyn Girl.

0:38:540:38:57

-Girl With A Pearl Earring.

-Girl With A Pearl Earring.

0:38:570:38:59

And... We Bought A Zoo or Lost In Translation?

0:38:590:39:01

-We Bought A Zoo.

-We Bought A Zoo.

0:39:010:39:03

And We Bought A Zoo. Of those three,

0:39:030:39:04

which is your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:39:040:39:07

-The Other Boleyn Girl.

-The Other Boleyn Girl goes last.

0:39:070:39:10

Least likely to be pointless?

0:39:100:39:11

-We Bought A Zoo.

-We Bought A Zoo.

0:39:110:39:12

Girl With A Pearl Earring goes in the middle.

0:39:120:39:14

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

0:39:140:39:17

and here they are - we have got...

0:39:170:39:19

Well, very best of luck. Three good answers there.

0:39:240:39:27

If one of these happens to be pointless

0:39:270:39:29

and wins you that jackpot, £1,250, what would you like to do with it?

0:39:290:39:32

Jo, you first.

0:39:320:39:33

I would like to go to Iceland.

0:39:330:39:35

I've always fancied a weekend break in Iceland.

0:39:350:39:38

How nice. A weekend, I think, is long enough.

0:39:380:39:40

-A long weekend.

-Yes.

-Yeah.

-A long weekend.

0:39:400:39:43

Very good. Denise, how about you?

0:39:430:39:45

I've been wanting for a long time to go on a hot-air balloon trip,

0:39:450:39:48

so I will probably do that.

0:39:480:39:49

Very good indeed.

0:39:490:39:50

So, Iceland and hot air, fantastic.

0:39:500:39:53

Best of luck. Three good answers, as I say,

0:39:530:39:54

let's hope one of those at least is pointless.

0:39:540:39:56

Your first answer was We Bought A Zoo.

0:39:560:39:58

In all three cases, we were looking for Scarlett Johansson films.

0:39:580:40:01

Your first answer was We Bought A Zoo.

0:40:010:40:03

If this is correct and it is pointless,

0:40:030:40:05

it will win you £1,250.

0:40:050:40:08

Let's see how many of our 100 people said We Bought A Zoo.

0:40:080:40:10

Is it pointless?

0:40:100:40:11

It's right.

0:40:140:40:15

That was very much the first thing it had to be.

0:40:150:40:17

We Bought A Zoo now takes us down through the 30s.

0:40:170:40:20

If it goes down to pointless, it wins you £1,250.

0:40:200:40:23

We are in single figures.

0:40:230:40:24

Down it goes. We Bought A Zoo, still going down...

0:40:240:40:26

You've done it! Right out of the trap. Very well done indeed.

0:40:260:40:30

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:40:300:40:32

Very well done. Superb.

0:40:320:40:36

Very well done indeed.

0:40:380:40:40

Congratulations. We Bought A Zoo was a pointless answer.

0:40:400:40:43

Your very first answer.

0:40:430:40:45

A pointless answer, which means you go home with that jackpot of £1,250.

0:40:450:40:49

Off to Iceland, up in that balloon you go.

0:40:490:40:52

Well, that turned out very nicely, didn't it?

0:40:540:40:56

Especially as on the last show,

0:40:560:40:58

you lost because of Moody Blues

0:40:580:41:00

and now the Shades Of Red have won you that jackpot.

0:41:000:41:03

Terrific stuff.

0:41:030:41:05

Your other two answers,

0:41:050:41:06

Girl With A Pearl Earring would've scored you 10 points.

0:41:060:41:08

The Other Boleyn Girl, another pointless answer.

0:41:080:41:11

-Oh, well done!

-Very well done.

-Very well done.

0:41:110:41:15

Three very good categories, I think, here, because lots of people...

0:41:170:41:20

Lots of different areas of knowledge.

0:41:200:41:22

We'll start with Maroon 5.

0:41:220:41:23

I know some people would've got pointless answers here.

0:41:230:41:26

Seven pointless answers.

0:41:260:41:27

If I Never See Your Face Again, Makes Me Wonder,

0:41:270:41:29

Misery, Wake-Up Call,

0:41:290:41:30

also, It Was Always You,

0:41:300:41:32

Must Get Out and This Summer was also pointless answer.

0:41:320:41:35

Very well done if you got any of those.

0:41:350:41:37

Scarlett Johansson now - lots of big films here

0:41:370:41:39

were pointless answers for Scarlett Johansson.

0:41:390:41:41

Home Alone 3, Match Point,

0:41:410:41:43

in which she starred alongside a certain Alexander Armstrong.

0:41:430:41:46

The Woody Allen film. Did you actually get to meet her?

0:41:460:41:49

-When you filmed?

-Oh, I...

0:41:490:41:51

-No.

-Did you not?

0:41:510:41:53

No. I was on set one day when she was there.

0:41:530:41:56

What were they saying about her?

0:41:560:41:58

What was the vibe about Scarlett on set?

0:41:580:42:01

-She was very nice. They liked her.

-Good.

-She was very popular.

0:42:010:42:03

-I like it when people are nice.

-Yeah, no, she was nice.

0:42:030:42:05

The Horse Whisperer, there's The Other Boleyn Girl.

0:42:050:42:08

Also could've had Hail Caesar, Hitchcock, Scoop, The Black Dahlia,

0:42:080:42:11

The Prestige, The Spongebob Squarepants Movie.

0:42:110:42:14

That would have been a good answer. Well done if you said that.

0:42:140:42:17

Under The Skin as well was a pointless answer.

0:42:170:42:19

And now the Claret Jug winners at the Open.

0:42:190:42:21

I know lots of people would've done well on this. Lots of pointless answers as well.

0:42:210:42:24

The South African Louis Oosthuizen.

0:42:240:42:26

Mark O'Meara, Padraig Harrington, a pointless answer.

0:42:260:42:28

Stewart Cink, who won against Tom Watson a few years back.

0:42:280:42:31

You also could have had Ben Curtis, Ben Hogan, David Duval,

0:42:310:42:33

Ian Baker-Finch, John Daly,

0:42:330:42:35

Justin Leonard, Mark Calcavecchia.

0:42:350:42:37

Todd Hamilton, Tony Lema, Zach Johnson -

0:42:370:42:39

all sorts of pointless answers there.

0:42:390:42:41

Well done if you got any of those at home

0:42:410:42:43

and terrific work in the studio.

0:42:430:42:45

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:42:450:42:46

Thanks once again to our winning players, Jo and Denise,

0:42:460:42:49

who go away with today's jackpot of £1,250.

0:42:490:42:52

Very well done.

0:42:520:42:53

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:530:42:55

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

0:42:560:42:59

to the test on Pointless.

0:42:590:43:00

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:000:43:03

And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:030:43:05

Quiz in which contestants try to score as few points as possible by plumbing the depths of their general knowledge to come up with the answers no-one else can think of. Presented by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman.
