Thank you very much indeed.

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

0:00:220:00:25

the show where the lowest scorers are the biggest winners.

0:00:250:00:27

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:270:00:28

And couple number one.

0:00:320:00:34

My name's Beverley.

0:00:340:00:35

This is my friend Tracey, and we're from Sheffield.

0:00:350:00:38

-Couple number two.

-Hi, I'm Julie.

0:00:380:00:40

This is my brother Michael and we're from Belfast.

0:00:400:00:42

-Couple number three.

-Hello, I'm Sam.

0:00:420:00:44

This is my friend Jordan and we're both from Grimsby.

0:00:440:00:47

And, finally, couple number four.

0:00:470:00:49

Hello, I'm Antonio. This is my friend Sam

0:00:490:00:51

and we're from Milton Keynes.

0:00:510:00:52

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:520:00:54

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

0:00:550:00:58

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

0:00:580:01:00

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

0:01:000:01:03

His specialist subject is everything and lots of it.

0:01:030:01:06

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

0:01:060:01:09

Hiya. Hey, everybody.

0:01:090:01:10

Good afternoon.

0:01:100:01:13

-Good afternoon to you, sir.

-Good afternoon.

-How are you?

0:01:130:01:15

-I'm very well.

-If you did have a specialist subject on Mastermind

0:01:150:01:19

or some such, what would yours be?

0:01:190:01:20

-Tintin.

-Would it?

0:01:200:01:22

-Yeah, I think so.

-Oh.

0:01:220:01:24

All right, I'll ask you a question.

0:01:240:01:26

You know Herge out of Tintin?

0:01:260:01:29

-Yeah.

-Yeah. What was his middle name?

0:01:290:01:31

He was called Georges Remi.

0:01:330:01:34

Yeah, but what was his middle name?

0:01:340:01:36

-Erm... I don't think he had one.

-He did.

0:01:360:01:38

It was Hector.

0:01:390:01:40

-Was he really?

-No!

0:01:400:01:42

Oh!

0:01:420:01:43

But the fact you didn't know that, I think, is...

0:01:430:01:47

You know.

0:01:470:01:48

Anyway, let's get on with our show, shall we?

0:01:480:01:50

-OK, let's.

-Two returning pairs. Beverley and Tracey, welcome back.

0:01:500:01:53

Didn't see as much of you as we would have liked on the last show.

0:01:530:01:56

Michael and Julie went all the way through to the head-to-head,

0:01:560:01:59

didn't they? Did very, very well.

0:01:590:02:00

And welcome to our new pairs on podiums three and four.

0:02:000:02:03

It's going to be a lot of fun. Nothing about...

0:02:030:02:05

I hope that Tintin isn't coming up later in the show,

0:02:050:02:07

otherwise that will be very embarrassing.

0:02:070:02:09

-Oh, God. Yes, Georges Hector...

-Georges Hector.

-Hector Remi!

0:02:090:02:12

That's believable, right?

0:02:120:02:13

I know. Who knew that?

0:02:130:02:14

You could imagine.

0:02:140:02:15

I'm going to find out on my computer, that's not on,

0:02:150:02:18

what his middle name actually is.

0:02:180:02:20

While Richard's doing that, Danny and Alex won the jackpot last time,

0:02:200:02:24

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

0:02:240:02:27

That's how thrilled we are.

0:02:270:02:29

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

0:02:290:02:31

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

0:02:360:02:39

round will be eliminated, so make sure you are not that pair.

0:02:390:02:43

Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:430:02:44

Our first category this afternoon is...

0:02:440:02:46

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

0:02:500:02:52

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

0:02:520:02:54

please step up to the podium.

0:02:540:02:55

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:590:03:02

-Richard.

-On each board,

0:03:050:03:06

we're going to show you the names of seven films and the initials of an

0:03:060:03:09

actor who won an Oscar for their performance in both films.

0:03:090:03:12

We just need the name of those actors, please.

0:03:120:03:14

OK, so, let's have a look at our board.

0:03:140:03:16

We are looking for the actors who won Oscars for these pairs of films.

0:03:160:03:20

And here is our first board of seven. It goes like this...

0:03:200:03:23

I'm going to read those all again.

0:03:510:03:52

Beverley, you are welcome back on Pointless.

0:04:190:04:22

Great to have you here again.

0:04:220:04:23

Remind us what you do in Sheffield, Beverley.

0:04:230:04:26

I work with families, offer support to families, so...

0:04:260:04:30

That's right. So how many families do you look after?

0:04:300:04:32

Usually about ten at once, in one go.

0:04:320:04:34

-OK.

-Ten families.

-So they'll all be watching now.

0:04:340:04:37

-Hopefully not!

-Gunning for you, Beverley.

0:04:370:04:39

Now, remind us what you like getting up to when you're not doing that.

0:04:390:04:42

Well, I do like to be part of the book club that I go to.

0:04:420:04:45

We meet up about once a month

0:04:450:04:47

-and review some books that we're reading.

-See, that's nice.

0:04:470:04:49

What's been your favourite book of the last 12 months?

0:04:490:04:52

I think the one I've just finished,

0:04:520:04:54

The Widow. Yeah, enjoyed that.

0:04:540:04:56

Excellent. Now, Beverley, we're coming to our Oscar winners now.

0:04:560:04:59

What would you like to go for?

0:04:590:05:01

I think I know two,

0:05:030:05:04

but I think I'm going to play a bit safe and I'm going to go The Accused

0:05:040:05:08

and Silence Of The Lambs.

0:05:080:05:10

-Jodie Foster.

-Jodie Foster, says Beverley for JF.

0:05:100:05:13

Let's see if that's right,

0:05:130:05:14

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

0:05:140:05:17

It's right.

0:05:190:05:20

57. Not bad.

0:05:230:05:25

Gets us off to a good start, Beverley.

0:05:250:05:28

Yes, she actually won Best Actress Oscars for both of those films.

0:05:280:05:32

Thank you very much indeed. Julie, welcome back.

0:05:320:05:34

-Thank you.

-You did awfully well last time.

0:05:340:05:36

-Thank you.

-Very well indeed, right through to the head-to-head

0:05:360:05:39

and then thwarted at the last moment.

0:05:390:05:41

Remind us what you're doing at the moment, Julie.

0:05:410:05:43

I'm studying law with politics at university,

0:05:430:05:45

but when I'm not doing that, I do a lot of musical theatre.

0:05:450:05:48

-Oh, do you?

-Mm-hm.

0:05:480:05:49

Are you planning anything in the pipeline for the rest

0:05:490:05:52

-of this year?

-Well, next month I'm playing Christine Daae in

0:05:520:05:55

The Phantom Of The Opera, so I'm very excited about that.

0:05:550:05:58

Wow, that's going to be a big role.

0:05:580:05:59

-I know.

-How fantastic. So, what, that's at the university, is it?

0:05:590:06:02

Erm, no, it's actually outside of university.

0:06:020:06:05

I see. OK.

0:06:050:06:06

Very good. Well, good luck with that, Julie.

0:06:060:06:08

Now, what about these actors?

0:06:080:06:10

Yeah, I thought I knew Jodie Foster and there's another one

0:06:100:06:14

I do know and it's one that I think I could take a guess at,

0:06:140:06:17

but I don't know.

0:06:170:06:19

I'll say Glory and Training Day.

0:06:190:06:22

Denzel Washington.

0:06:220:06:23

Denzel Washington, OK.

0:06:230:06:25

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

0:06:250:06:28

Denzel Washington.

0:06:280:06:29

It is Denzel Washington.

0:06:310:06:33

Well, 57 is the only score on the board

0:06:330:06:35

and you pass it.

0:06:350:06:37

There you go, down to 36.

0:06:370:06:38

Very well done indeed, Julie.

0:06:380:06:40

Yeah, Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor in those.

0:06:420:06:45

I think he might be my favourite actor.

0:06:450:06:47

Never makes a bad film.

0:06:470:06:48

I think he might be as well.

0:06:480:06:49

-What, my favourite actor?

-Yes. Your favourite actor.

-Yeah.

0:06:490:06:52

You have said that when they make the film of Pointless,

0:06:520:06:55

which we are in discussion, Denzel Washington will play you.

0:06:550:06:58

Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. I think he'd be a good me.

0:06:580:07:00

-Yes.

-I think he has the presence, I think he could carry me off,

0:07:000:07:03

if you know what I mean. I think he'd be good.

0:07:030:07:06

-I think he would be.

-And for you...

0:07:060:07:07

Oh, that's an interesting one.

0:07:090:07:10

-Isn't it?

-Donald Sutherland...

0:07:100:07:12

LAUGHTER

0:07:120:07:13

-Yes.

-..would be good.

-Neil Patrick Harris.

0:07:140:07:17

-I don't know.

-Yeah, he looks like you.

0:07:170:07:19

Yeah. Who else could play you?

0:07:190:07:21

-Erm...

-Meryl Streep.

0:07:210:07:23

That would be an Oscar winner for sure, wouldn't it?

0:07:230:07:25

Michael Sheen would probably play you. He plays all the...

0:07:250:07:27

Michael Sheen can do a good impression.

0:07:270:07:29

-You could play yourself.

-I could play myself.

0:07:290:07:31

-Hugh Bonneville could play me.

-Hugh Bonneville would be a very good you.

0:07:310:07:34

-Yeah.

-What if we turn up for work next week and Hugh Bonneville

0:07:340:07:36

and Denzel Washington are in our dressing rooms?

0:07:360:07:38

Just going, "Yeah..."

0:07:380:07:40

-That's bound to happen.

-Thanks very much, Richard.

0:07:410:07:44

Sam, great to have you here from Grimsby.

0:07:440:07:47

-Yeah.

-What do you do, Sam?

0:07:470:07:49

I'm a student at Sussex University doing history and American studies.

0:07:490:07:53

But when I'm not there, I work in a fish and chip shop.

0:07:530:07:56

Oh, that's fun, isn't it?

0:07:560:07:57

Whereabouts is the fish and chip shop?

0:07:570:07:59

It's in a town called Looe in Cornwall.

0:07:590:08:01

That's a big commute from Grimsby, isn't it?

0:08:010:08:03

Well, like, two or three years ago, we moved to Cornwall from Grimsby,

0:08:030:08:06

-but it's just...

-Oh, I see. You don't want to say...

0:08:060:08:08

Oh, it's nice, because you are from Grimsby.

0:08:080:08:10

-Yeah.

-Yeah. And loyalty to Grimsby and all that.

0:08:100:08:12

-Yeah.

-Very good. Good fish and chip shop?

0:08:120:08:14

-You have to say yes to that.

-Yeah, I think it's good.

0:08:140:08:16

There aren't many bad ones, but...

0:08:160:08:17

Oh, I love fish and chips.

0:08:170:08:19

Sam, are you enjoying our Oscar winners round?

0:08:190:08:22

Yeah, yeah, it's all right.

0:08:220:08:23

But the only ones I know are the dead obvious ones, so...

0:08:230:08:27

Like, I'm tempted by the third one down.

0:08:270:08:30

-Is it Meryl Streep?

-Meryl Streep.

0:08:310:08:33

Let's see if it's right.

0:08:330:08:35

Meryl Streep. How many of our 100 people said Meryl Streep?

0:08:350:08:38

-Oh, no!

-I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

0:08:400:08:42

Oh, no, no. Listen, I'm sorry, Jordan.

0:08:420:08:45

That's unfortunate. Fits the initials perfectly.

0:08:450:08:47

It does.

0:08:470:08:49

Well, there we are, thank you.

0:08:490:08:51

Now, Sam.

0:08:510:08:52

-Hello.

-Welcome to Pointless.

0:08:520:08:53

-Sam W.

-Yes.

0:08:530:08:55

Erm, what do you do, Sam?

0:08:550:08:56

Erm, surprisingly, I am a postman.

0:08:560:08:59

Probably the youngest-looking postman you've probably seen.

0:08:590:09:02

They are getting younger, aren't they, postmen?

0:09:020:09:04

-Yes.

-I do keep finding that.

0:09:040:09:05

-They are.

-How long have you been doing that?

0:09:050:09:07

-Just a couple of years.

-Enjoying it?

0:09:070:09:09

-I love it.

-Out on the delivery, what time do you have to be up?

0:09:090:09:12

-5:30.

-That's not too bad, actually.

0:09:120:09:14

-Could be better, though, couldn't it?

-And the sack's all ready,

0:09:140:09:17

-everything's been sorted.

-No, no, no, no.

0:09:170:09:19

-No?

-I've got to get up, sort it out.

0:09:190:09:21

So, you've got to do the sorting?

0:09:210:09:23

-Yeah.

-And then the carrying?

0:09:230:09:25

And then the dog dodging?

0:09:250:09:27

-Oh, that's the trickiest part, to be fair.

-Yeah.

0:09:270:09:29

Are they already packaged in their elastic bands?

0:09:290:09:31

-No, that's another job for myself.

-You've got to do that as well?

0:09:310:09:33

Yeah. It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it.

0:09:330:09:35

You're some sort of polymath.

0:09:350:09:37

Extraordinary. But fun, you're enjoying it.

0:09:370:09:39

-Yes, yeah.

-What time do you finish? That's the nice answer, isn't it?

0:09:390:09:42

-What time are you finished?

-I'm usually home by sort of 3:30, so...

0:09:420:09:45

-Oh, I thought you were going to say midday.

-..can't complain.

0:09:450:09:47

-Oh, no, no, no.

-No.

-I'm a grafter.

-That is a long day.

0:09:470:09:50

You are a grafter.

0:09:500:09:51

Anyway, well, listen, let's see where your graft gets you on this.

0:09:510:09:54

If you wanted to fill in all those blanks, you'd be very welcome to.

0:09:540:09:56

RDN, I think, is Robert De Niro.

0:09:560:09:58

He's probably the best actor of all time.

0:09:580:09:59

IB, I'm not sure.

0:09:590:10:01

VL...

0:10:010:10:03

I've got a feeling is Vera Lynn?

0:10:030:10:06

And I think that's what I'm going to play.

0:10:060:10:08

OK, you're going to go for Vera Lynn.

0:10:080:10:10

Excellent, that got a great reaction from the audience there.

0:10:100:10:13

Let's see what happens when we say Vera Lynn.

0:10:130:10:15

Listen, no, you see, that's nice.

0:10:200:10:22

We've got two Sams up on 100 there, which is...

0:10:220:10:24

That's nice company there.

0:10:240:10:25

I'm afraid an incorrect answer, Vera Lynn. Scores you 100 points.

0:10:250:10:29

Yeah, sorry. It is not Vera Lynn, I'm afraid.

0:10:290:10:31

-Do you know that one?

-Vivien Leigh.

-Vivien Leigh.

0:10:310:10:33

Yeah. And that would have scored 42.

0:10:330:10:36

Now, right at the top there?

0:10:360:10:38

-Marlon Brando.

-Marlon Brando.

0:10:380:10:40

That would have scored 68.

0:10:410:10:42

We'll go down to... You're right about Robert De Niro.

0:10:420:10:45

Would've been a fairly big scorer, would have scored you 55.

0:10:450:10:48

Might have been worth going for.

0:10:480:10:49

Gaslight and Murder On The Orient Express?

0:10:490:10:52

It's Ingrid Bergman.

0:10:520:10:53

-Oh, it's Ingrid Bergman!

-Yeah.

-Of course she's in that.

0:10:530:10:55

10 points for that. 30 years apart,

0:10:550:10:57

those Oscar nominations as well.

0:10:570:10:59

So MS...

0:10:590:11:01

Not Meryl Streep. It is...

0:11:010:11:02

-Maggie Smith.

-Maggie Smith.

0:11:020:11:04

Yeah.

0:11:040:11:05

-I'm sorry.

-It would have scored you 19 points.

0:11:050:11:07

Ingrid Bergman, the best answer on that board.

0:11:070:11:09

Thank you. We're halfway through the round.

0:11:090:11:11

Let's take a quick look at those scores.

0:11:110:11:13

36, the best score of the pass.

0:11:130:11:14

Very well done indeed, Julie.

0:11:140:11:15

Julie and Michael, I think you will be going through to Round Two.

0:11:150:11:18

57's where we find Beverley and Tracey

0:11:180:11:21

and 100 is where we find the Sams

0:11:210:11:22

with Antonio and Jordan in attendance.

0:11:220:11:24

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

0:11:240:11:26

Can the second players step up to the podium?

0:11:260:11:28

OK, let's put seven more pairs of films up on the board

0:11:320:11:34

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

0:11:340:11:37

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

0:12:050:12:07

Antonio, a warm welcome to Pointless.

0:12:210:12:23

-Hello.

-Good to have you here.

0:12:230:12:24

-Thank you.

-Antonio, what do you do?

0:12:240:12:25

I work in finance and tax and during the weekend I coach at my dad's gym.

0:12:250:12:31

Wow. So, quite...

0:12:310:12:32

Did your dad have a gym all the time you were growing up?

0:12:320:12:35

Er, yeah. Pretty much.

0:12:350:12:36

Were you the muscle-iest person of all your friends?

0:12:360:12:39

-Absolutely.

-Ripped from the age of five.

0:12:390:12:42

-How extraordinary.

-Just washing clothes.

0:12:420:12:44

And he's got you coaching in his gym and weekends?

0:12:440:12:46

Yeah, I coach after work sometimes during the week and on the weekend.

0:12:460:12:50

-Wow, you never stop?

-No.

0:12:500:12:51

You never stop.

0:12:510:12:53

Now, Antonio, we have a contest on our hands.

0:12:530:12:55

-We do.

-Yeah, you have to get a nice...

0:12:550:12:57

Sam's dropped me in it here.

0:12:570:12:58

-He has a little.

-I know a few of them.

0:12:580:13:01

-Yeah.

-Which is...

0:13:010:13:02

Sam did as well but he didn't go for them, so...

0:13:020:13:06

Erm...

0:13:060:13:07

Which one's going to be the lowest?

0:13:090:13:11

Erm...

0:13:110:13:12

Yeah, we'll go with the second one.

0:13:130:13:15

-Jack Nicholson.

-Jack Nicholson, says Antonio.

0:13:160:13:19

No red line for you because you're joint high-scorers.

0:13:190:13:21

It's going to be quite high.

0:13:210:13:22

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

0:13:220:13:25

It's right.

0:13:270:13:28

61.

0:13:300:13:32

Takes your total up to 161.

0:13:320:13:35

Won Best Actor for both of those roles.

0:13:350:13:37

He's been nominated a further nine times for different Academy Awards.

0:13:370:13:41

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:13:420:13:44

Now, then, Jordan.

0:13:440:13:46

Welcome to Pointless, great to have you here, Jordan.

0:13:460:13:48

-What do you do?

-I'm currently waiting to start a job in, like,

0:13:480:13:51

a law firm as a legal exec.

0:13:510:13:52

-In Grimsby?

-Yeah, yeah.

0:13:520:13:54

And what are you doing between now and then?

0:13:540:13:56

Have you got some nice plans?

0:13:560:13:58

Not really. I've just finished sort of volunteering at my old college,

0:13:580:14:01

like, doing tutoring for the younger students.

0:14:010:14:04

Very good. What were you tutoring in?

0:14:040:14:06

-In law.

-Oh, right.

0:14:060:14:07

Yeah. OK. Very good indeed.

0:14:070:14:09

Now then, you're on 100 points.

0:14:090:14:11

-Yeah.

-Your erstwhile rivals, Antonio and Sam, have gone up to 161,

0:14:110:14:17

which means if you can score 60 or less, Jordan, you are through.

0:14:170:14:21

-Yeah.

-What would you like to go for?

0:14:210:14:23

I think... I know two and I think I know a third one,

0:14:230:14:26

so I'm going to go for that one.

0:14:260:14:28

It's worth taking a risk though, isn't it?

0:14:280:14:29

-I think so.

-The second from the bottom,

0:14:290:14:31

the Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby.

0:14:310:14:34

Is it Hilary Swank?

0:14:340:14:35

Hilary Swank, says Jordan.

0:14:350:14:37

Here is your red line.

0:14:370:14:38

If you can get below this red line with Hilary Swank,

0:14:380:14:40

you are through to Round Two.

0:14:400:14:41

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

0:14:410:14:44

It is Hilary Swank.

0:14:460:14:47

And that gets you through.

0:14:490:14:50

Look at that. That's a very good answer.

0:14:500:14:52

26.

0:14:520:14:54

Our lowest score of the whole round so far, in fact.

0:14:540:14:56

26 takes your total up to 126.

0:14:560:14:57

-Very well done.

-That's great work, Jordan.

0:14:570:14:59

Very well done, yeah. Getting us back on an even keel.

0:14:590:15:02

Hilary Swank.

0:15:020:15:03

Thank you very much indeed.

0:15:030:15:04

-Now, Michael.

-Hello.

-Michael, welcome back.

0:15:040:15:06

Now, listen, it's good news for you.

0:15:060:15:08

I mean, it's bad news on the far podium over there, 161,

0:15:080:15:11

they are unassailably high-scoring which means all remaining players

0:15:110:15:14

will be going through. But, Michael, here you are.

0:15:140:15:17

-Remind us what you do.

-I'm a doctor.

0:15:170:15:18

You're a doctor. Are you quite newly qualified, Michael?

0:15:180:15:21

So, I'm about three years qualified now.

0:15:210:15:23

I see. OK. So, what level are you, because you come in as a houseman,

0:15:230:15:26

-is that right?

-Yes, that's right.

-And then it's consultant and then

0:15:260:15:30

-surgeon, is that right?

-They keep changing the names of them.

0:15:300:15:32

-Oh, right.

-So currently I'm called a medical trainee,

0:15:320:15:35

so I'm training in hospital medicine.

0:15:350:15:37

So, how much longer before you are

0:15:370:15:38

absolutely the level you would like to remain at?

0:15:380:15:41

Probably another seven or eight years.

0:15:410:15:42

-Really?

-Yeah. Yeah, a lot of training to do.

0:15:420:15:45

Wow! Anyway, there you go.

0:15:450:15:47

36 is your score.

0:15:470:15:49

You are through whatever you score in this question.

0:15:490:15:52

-What would you like to go for?

-Erm...

0:15:520:15:54

I know a few on the board, I think.

0:15:550:15:57

I think I'm going to go with the fifth one down,

0:15:570:16:01

an actor who actually won three Oscars I think as well,

0:16:010:16:03

which is My Left Foot and Lincoln, Daniel Day Lewis.

0:16:030:16:06

Daniel Day Lewis, says Michael. No red line, you're already through.

0:16:060:16:09

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

0:16:090:16:11

64. Not bad at all.

0:16:160:16:18

Takes your total up to a lovely round 100.

0:16:180:16:21

You're absolutely right.

0:16:210:16:22

Also won the Best Actor Oscar for There Will Be Blood.

0:16:220:16:24

Nice to have Britain's youngest doctor and Britain's youngest

0:16:240:16:27

postman on the same show.

0:16:270:16:28

Isn't that nice? Thank you very much, Richard.

0:16:280:16:31

Tracey, welcome back.

0:16:310:16:33

Remind us what you do, Tracey.

0:16:330:16:34

I'm a claims assessor in a legal office.

0:16:340:16:37

That is right. And what other things do you like getting up to?

0:16:370:16:40

In my spare time, I go to a WI, Kelham Island WI.

0:16:400:16:43

What does the Kelham Island WI get up to?

0:16:430:16:46

Some great things. They do things like Lindy hop dancing,

0:16:460:16:49

wall climbing, gin tasting.

0:16:490:16:51

What's the finest gin you've tasted?

0:16:510:16:54

All of them.

0:16:540:16:55

Is it Kelham with a K?

0:16:560:16:58

-It is.

-So your initials are KIWI?

0:16:580:17:00

-Yes, that's it. We're KIWIs.

-That's nice.

-Yeah.

0:17:000:17:02

Anyway, there we go.

0:17:020:17:04

So, you are through.

0:17:040:17:06

57 is your score.

0:17:060:17:07

Good score from Beverley at the beginning of the round.

0:17:070:17:09

What would you like to go for? This board is all yours.

0:17:090:17:12

OK. Well, the top one is Cate Blanchett.

0:17:120:17:14

The third one down is Meryl Streep.

0:17:140:17:17

I think it's Sally Field for the fourth one down and the bottom one

0:17:170:17:20

is Elizabeth Taylor. So I'll play safe and I'll say Cate Blanchett.

0:17:200:17:26

OK, you're going to play safe. Cate Blanchett, says Tracey.

0:17:260:17:29

No red line, you're already through.

0:17:290:17:31

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

0:17:310:17:34

15 for Cate Blanchett.

0:17:440:17:45

That's a fantastic score. Best score of the round.

0:17:450:17:48

Best till last. 72 is your total.

0:17:480:17:50

And that was beautifully done as well, Tracey,

0:17:500:17:52

taking us through the board. The KIWIs will be very proud indeed.

0:17:520:17:55

Let's see what you could have scored for those other ones.

0:17:550:17:58

Yeah, there's Meryl Streep, Sam.

0:17:580:18:00

She would've scored 53.

0:18:000:18:03

We'll go down the bottom first.

0:18:030:18:05

You're right, it is Liz Taylor, Elizabeth Taylor.

0:18:050:18:08

She would have scored 25.

0:18:080:18:09

But the best answer on the board by some way is Sally Field.

0:18:090:18:11

It would have been a great answer.

0:18:110:18:13

-1 point for Sally Field.

-Wow.

0:18:130:18:15

Very well done if you said that at home.

0:18:150:18:17

Thanks very much indeed.

0:18:170:18:18

We are at the end of our first round which means we have to say

0:18:180:18:20

goodbye to one of our pairs and the pair we have to say goodbye to is

0:18:200:18:23

Antonio and Sam W.

0:18:230:18:25

Oh! I'm sorry.

0:18:250:18:26

I am sorry.

0:18:260:18:28

Yes. Vera Lynn.

0:18:280:18:29

Listen, we'll meet again, it's fine.

0:18:320:18:34

You'll be back next show.

0:18:340:18:35

We will look forward to that very much indeed, but, in the meantime,

0:18:370:18:39

thanks very much for playing, Antonio and Sam.

0:18:390:18:42

APPLAUSE

0:18:420:18:43

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

0:18:450:18:48

Look at that, we are down to three pairs.

0:18:530:18:55

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

0:18:550:18:58

the pairs in front of me now. Best of luck to all three pairs.

0:18:580:19:01

Our category for Round Two this afternoon is...

0:19:010:19:03

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

0:19:060:19:08

who's going to go second?

0:19:080:19:10

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

0:19:100:19:12

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

0:19:150:19:17

Here it comes. We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many...

0:19:170:19:22

-Richard.

-Yeah, looking for any Rolling Stones UK top 40 hit,

0:19:270:19:30

according to officialcharts.com

0:19:300:19:32

that contains any of those letters, please.

0:19:320:19:34

A, N, G, I or E.

0:19:340:19:35

Thanks very much, Richard. Now, Beverley,

0:19:350:19:38

what would you like to go for?

0:19:380:19:40

Erm...

0:19:400:19:42

I'm going to go... And I hope it's right...

0:19:420:19:45

Gas, Gas, Gas.

0:19:460:19:48

Gas, Gas, Gas.

0:19:480:19:51

"Jumping Jack Flash, it's a Gas, Gas, Gas."

0:19:510:19:53

Gas, Gas, Gas, says Beverley.

0:19:530:19:55

Let's see if that's right.

0:19:550:19:57

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

0:19:570:20:00

No, Beverley, I'm afraid that's an incorrect answer.

0:20:050:20:08

-Scores you 100 points, I'm sorry.

-Sorry, Beverley.

0:20:080:20:11

Gas, Gas, Gas was a number one for Vera Lynn, I'm afraid.

0:20:110:20:14

LAUGHTER

0:20:140:20:15

Thanks very much, Richard.

0:20:170:20:19

Sam. What would you like to go for?

0:20:190:20:22

Erm... I do love the Rolling Stones.

0:20:220:20:24

I went to the exhibition a few months back.

0:20:240:20:26

It's really good. So...

0:20:260:20:28

I'll say Wild Horses.

0:20:290:20:30

Wild Horses, says Sam.

0:20:300:20:32

Let's see if that's right.

0:20:320:20:33

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

0:20:330:20:35

Ooh! This is going well(!)

0:20:380:20:41

Wild Horses, I'm afraid, also an incorrect answer,

0:20:410:20:44

scoring you 100 points.

0:20:440:20:45

I know, Sam, that's my feeling as well.

0:20:450:20:48

Yeah, no, I'm very sorry. Not a UK top 40 hit, I'm afraid.

0:20:490:20:52

But, you know, you got it wrong for better reasons and a terrific track,

0:20:520:20:55

but, erm... That's unlucky.

0:20:550:20:56

You knew too much.

0:20:560:20:58

Michael, yes.

0:20:590:21:01

There are the pitfalls.

0:21:010:21:02

Wrong and wrong.

0:21:020:21:04

-For different reasons.

-I can't guarantee there won't be a third!

0:21:040:21:09

Erm...

0:21:090:21:10

Maybe two or three coming to mind.

0:21:100:21:12

I think I'll probably try to get a right answer primarily

0:21:120:21:15

and go for Brown Sugar.

0:21:150:21:16

Brown Sugar, says Michael.

0:21:160:21:18

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

0:21:180:21:22

Now, that is right.

0:21:230:21:25

Brown Sugar is a correct answer.

0:21:250:21:27

Down it goes, still going down.

0:21:270:21:29

Oh, it's a great answer.

0:21:290:21:30

19. Look at that.

0:21:300:21:32

Very well done.

0:21:330:21:34

Yeah, a number two hit and the opening track on Sticky Fingers,

0:21:350:21:38

which is the album that Wild Horses is on as well.

0:21:380:21:40

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

0:21:400:21:42

Let's take a quick look at those scores.

0:21:420:21:44

19, the... Not just the best,

0:21:440:21:46

but the only score of that round, in fact, so far.

0:21:460:21:49

Very well done. Michael and Julie, I think you might be in

0:21:490:21:52

the head-to-head for the second consecutive time.

0:21:520:21:54

Now, once again, Jordan finds himself having to dig himself

0:21:540:21:58

out of the hole Sam has dug for him,

0:21:580:22:00

but, Tracey, this is a first for you.

0:22:000:22:03

It's going to be a Jordan-and-Tracey-off

0:22:030:22:05

in this next pass. Best of luck to both of you.

0:22:050:22:07

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

0:22:070:22:09

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:22:090:22:11

OK, well, now, Julie,

0:22:140:22:16

remember, we're looking for any Rolling Stones single

0:22:160:22:19

that contains the letters A, N, G, I or E.

0:22:190:22:21

Music is not my best category.

0:22:220:22:24

I'm not even sure I know who the Rolling Stones are.

0:22:240:22:28

I tell you what, join the club!

0:22:280:22:30

Yeah, to make it worse, I think that there is a roller-coaster

0:22:300:22:34

that Michael has been on and it sounds like the type of song

0:22:340:22:38

they would play on a roller-coaster...

0:22:380:22:39

Highway To Hell.

0:22:390:22:41

Highway To Hell, OK.

0:22:420:22:44

Let's see what happens. Here's your red line.

0:22:440:22:46

Let's see what happens when we say Highway To Hell.

0:22:460:22:49

No, I'm afraid is not a Rolling Stones song,

0:22:540:22:56

but that scores you 100 points. Takes your total up to 119.

0:22:560:23:00

But still in with a good chance there, Julie.

0:23:000:23:03

Yeah, that's AC/DC, I'm afraid.

0:23:030:23:04

Though, coincidentally, the scores now match the current ages

0:23:040:23:08

of the Rolling Stones, so that's quite nice.

0:23:080:23:11

I hope they're not watching! Well, not just for that,

0:23:110:23:13

I hope they're not watching this

0:23:130:23:15

because this is going terribly for the Stones.

0:23:150:23:17

I know. Thank you, Richard. Now, Jordan.

0:23:170:23:19

Jordan, ideally, you would score 18 or less with your answer.

0:23:200:23:25

-Are you a Stones fan?

-Not really.

0:23:260:23:28

I know a couple, but I think I'm going to have to play safe.

0:23:280:23:31

Not too safe. Well, 18 or less.

0:23:310:23:33

I'm just going to sort of play safe.

0:23:330:23:35

I'll go for, like, Paint It Black.

0:23:350:23:37

Paint It Black, says Jordan.

0:23:370:23:38

Paint It Black. Here is your red line.

0:23:380:23:40

If you can get below that with Paint It Black,

0:23:400:23:43

you are on your way to the head-to-head.

0:23:430:23:45

Let's see how many of our 100 people said Paint It Black.

0:23:450:23:48

Oh, you've done it. Look at that! 13.

0:23:550:23:57

Very well done indeed, Jordan. 113 is your total.

0:23:570:24:00

You are through to the head-to-head.

0:24:000:24:02

Very nicely done.

0:24:020:24:04

Jordan is solid as a rock, isn't he,

0:24:040:24:06

throughout this. You chose well, Sam,

0:24:060:24:08

I think. Yeah, Paint It Black, a number one single for the Stones.

0:24:080:24:12

Thank you very much indeed.

0:24:120:24:13

Now, Tracey...

0:24:130:24:15

Your target is 18 or less.

0:24:150:24:18

I've been to see them, so...

0:24:180:24:20

They're not my favourite, but I do know a few of their songs.

0:24:200:24:24

It's just whether they were singles or not.

0:24:240:24:26

-That's the trouble.

-And I think I'll go with Miss You.

0:24:260:24:29

-I'm sure that was a...

-Miss You?

0:24:290:24:31

-Yeah.

-..says Tracey, Miss You. Here is your red line.

0:24:310:24:33

If you can get below this red line with Miss You,

0:24:330:24:36

you are through to the next round.

0:24:360:24:37

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

0:24:370:24:40

It's right.

0:24:420:24:43

Very well done, indeed.

0:24:490:24:50

5.

0:24:500:24:52

5 for Miss You, taking your total up to 105.

0:24:520:24:55

Very well done on the near podium there.

0:24:550:24:57

Terrific work again, Tracey. There's lots of pointless answers.

0:24:570:25:00

We'll take a look at a few of them.

0:25:000:25:02

Harlem Shuffle a pointless answer.

0:25:040:25:06

You could have had...

0:25:080:25:09

They had a lot of singles, the Stones.

0:25:100:25:13

Under Cover Of The Night is a Pointless answer.

0:25:130:25:16

You could have had Anybody Seen My Baby?

0:25:160:25:18

Dandelion, Don't Stop, Highwire, Let It Rock, Out Of Tears,

0:25:180:25:20

Rain Fall Down, She's So Cold and Streets Of Love.

0:25:200:25:23

They were all Pointless answers. We'll take a look now

0:25:230:25:25

at the top three, the ones that most of our 100 people said.

0:25:250:25:28

Jumpin' Jack Flash, which of course is the "gas, gas, gas" song.

0:25:280:25:32

It would have scored you 14.

0:25:320:25:34

Brown Sugar, 19.

0:25:340:25:36

It's the second-biggest scorer.

0:25:360:25:37

And the top scorer,

0:25:370:25:39

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction with 49.

0:25:390:25:41

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:25:410:25:43

So we are at the end of our second round and we have to say goodbye to

0:25:430:25:47

Julie and Michael. Oh, dear.

0:25:470:25:49

Talk about a roller-coaster, Julie.

0:25:490:25:51

It's been lovely having you on both shows.

0:25:510:25:53

I'm so sorry I have to say goodbye to you now.

0:25:530:25:55

But thank you so much for playing so well. Julie and Michael.

0:25:550:25:58

APPLAUSE

0:25:580:25:59

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

0:26:010:26:04

Congratulations, Beverley and Tracey, Sam and Jordan.

0:26:090:26:12

You are now one step closer to the final

0:26:120:26:14

and a chance to play for our jackpot

0:26:140:26:15

which currently stands at £1,000.

0:26:150:26:18

Well, we've made it to the head-to-head,

0:26:180:26:19

which means you are now allowed to play as pairs.

0:26:190:26:21

You can chat before you give your answers.

0:26:210:26:23

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

0:26:230:26:26

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

0:26:260:26:29

Here is your first question and it concerns...

0:26:350:26:38

Parts of the eye. Richard.

0:26:410:26:42

I'm going to show you a diagram now of the human eye.

0:26:420:26:45

We've labelled certain bits of it.

0:26:450:26:46

You need to tell us the bits we have labelled, please.

0:26:460:26:50

Excellent. Let's reveal our diagram of the eye and here it is.

0:26:500:26:55

There we are.

0:27:250:27:26

Five parts of the eye.

0:27:260:27:29

And, Beverley and Tracey, you have been our low-scorers

0:27:290:27:32

up to this point, so you will go first. Feel free to confer.

0:27:320:27:35

Shall we go for E?

0:27:400:27:42

Yeah.

0:27:450:27:46

Yeah, we'll go for E, cornea.

0:27:460:27:48

Cornea, say Beverley and Tracey.

0:27:480:27:51

Cornea. Now, Sam and Jordan,

0:27:510:27:52

do you feel like talking us through the rest of those eye parts?

0:27:520:27:55

I was going to say E, but we can't now.

0:27:550:27:59

So A is iris

0:27:590:28:02

and then D is optic nerve.

0:28:020:28:04

But they're the obvious ones, aren't they?

0:28:040:28:07

-Just go for it.

-We're going to just have to say D, an optic nerve.

0:28:070:28:10

OK, optic nerve, say Sam and Jordan.

0:28:100:28:12

So we have cornea and we have optic nerve.

0:28:120:28:14

Cornea, say Beverley and Tracey. Let's see if that's right.

0:28:140:28:16

Let's see how many people said cornea.

0:28:160:28:18

It's right.

0:28:210:28:22

69 for cornea.

0:28:240:28:26

69. Now, Sam and Jordan have gone for optic nerve for D.

0:28:290:28:32

Let's see if that's right.

0:28:320:28:33

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

0:28:330:28:36

It's right. There we are.

0:28:380:28:40

84 for optic nerve.

0:28:400:28:42

Very well done, Beverley and Tracey.

0:28:420:28:43

Two high scores, but yours the less high.

0:28:430:28:46

After one question, you are up 1-0.

0:28:460:28:48

Yes, let's fill in this, shall we?

0:28:480:28:51

A, of course, iris.

0:28:510:28:52

A big scorer, though. It would have scored you 92.

0:28:520:28:55

The second one is...

0:28:550:28:57

It's just in the middle of the retina and it's the fovea.

0:28:570:29:00

The fovea would have scored you 6.

0:29:000:29:03

And an even better scorer, C.

0:29:030:29:05

You can work this out

0:29:050:29:06

because what's the thing that's wrong with your eye?

0:29:060:29:09

Ah, conjunctiva...

0:29:090:29:12

Yeah, the conjunctiva.

0:29:120:29:13

Absolutely right. There we are.

0:29:130:29:15

It would have scored you 5 points.

0:29:150:29:16

It's funny how you get so many children called Iris,

0:29:160:29:18

but so few called Conjunctiva.

0:29:180:29:20

-Isn't it?

-Isn't that funny?

-It's such a pretty name.

0:29:200:29:23

-Such a pretty name.

-Yeah. So there you go, best answer on the board,

0:29:230:29:25

-conjunctiva.

-Very good.

0:29:250:29:26

Thank you very much, Richard. So here comes your second question.

0:29:260:29:29

Now, Sam and Jordan, you get to answer it first but you have to win

0:29:290:29:32

this one to stay in the game, so best of luck.

0:29:320:29:34

Our second question today is all about...

0:29:340:29:37

Richard.

0:29:400:29:41

Yep, five clues now about cats in popular culture and literature.

0:29:410:29:44

Can you give us the most obscure answer?

0:29:440:29:46

OK, thanks. Let's reveal our clues and here they come.

0:29:460:29:49

We've got...

0:29:490:29:50

I'm going to read those all again.

0:30:100:30:12

Sam and Jordan will go first.

0:30:290:30:31

We only know the Alice In Wonderland one and the James Bond one.

0:30:390:30:44

So we'll go for the villain white Persian cat in You Only Live Twice,

0:30:440:30:48

-it's Blofeld.

-Blofeld, say Sam and Jordan.

0:30:480:30:51

Now, Beverley and Tracey,

0:30:510:30:52

do you want to talk us through the rest of those cat things?

0:30:520:30:55

We don't know the top one.

0:30:550:30:57

I don't know if it's somebody Mathews...

0:30:570:30:59

I don't know. Cheshire cat.

0:30:590:31:02

I think the Edward Lear one is runcible,

0:31:020:31:05

which will be the one I think we'll go for.

0:31:050:31:07

And the cat-owning pantomime character, Dick Whittington.

0:31:070:31:12

So...runcible.

0:31:120:31:15

Runcible it is. A runcible spoon.

0:31:150:31:17

OK, so we have Blofeld and we have runcible.

0:31:170:31:20

Jordan and Sam said Blofeld.

0:31:200:31:22

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

0:31:220:31:25

It's right.

0:31:270:31:28

19 for Blofeld.

0:31:340:31:35

Meanwhile, Beverley and Tracey have gone for runcible.

0:31:390:31:42

A runcible spoon.

0:31:420:31:43

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

0:31:430:31:46

Oh, 28 for runcible.

0:31:540:31:55

Blofeld wins it. So, well done, Sam and Jordan, you're back in the game.

0:31:570:32:00

After two questions, it's 1-1.

0:32:000:32:02

Yes, a runcible spoon, I wasn't aware of this, it's a sort of spoon,

0:32:020:32:05

knife and fork all in one.

0:32:050:32:06

It's kind of a spoon shaped with three prongs and a cutting edge.

0:32:060:32:09

-Really?

-Yeah.

-I thought he'd made it up.

0:32:090:32:11

No. Unless he invented the runcible spoon after the poem.

0:32:110:32:14

-Oh, maybe he did.

-But I don't think he did. I would have remembered that

0:32:140:32:17

episode of Dragons' Den, I'm sure.

0:32:170:32:19

The author of the book...

0:32:190:32:20

Oh, lovely Judith Kerr.

0:32:200:32:22

Judith Kerr, who also wrote the Tiger Who Came To Tea.

0:32:220:32:24

That would have scored you 3 points.

0:32:240:32:26

The county of course is Cheshire,

0:32:260:32:28

which would have scored you 49. Pantomime character based on a

0:32:280:32:31

London mayor is of course Dick Whittington.

0:32:310:32:33

You're quite right, and that would have scored 48 points.

0:32:330:32:37

Thanks, Richard. OK, it all comes down to our third question.

0:32:370:32:39

Whoever wins this, goes through to the final

0:32:390:32:41

and plays for that jackpot. Best of luck to both pairs.

0:32:410:32:43

Here comes the third question. It concerns...

0:32:430:32:46

-Richard.

-I'm going to show you five titles of video game franchises now

0:32:510:32:54

which appeared on the list of 100 Best Video Games in the IGM list

0:32:540:32:57

from October 2015. I'm going to give you the initials.

0:32:570:32:59

Can you tell us what the game franchises are, please?

0:32:590:33:02

-Good luck.

-Thanks very much, indeed.

0:33:020:33:04

Let's reveal our five game franchises and here they are.

0:33:040:33:07

We have got...

0:33:090:33:10

I'll read those all again.

0:33:180:33:19

Beverley and Tracey will go first.

0:33:290:33:31

Not very good for us.

0:33:370:33:38

I know two.

0:33:390:33:41

I think we only know two.

0:33:410:33:42

And I'm guessing, actually.

0:33:420:33:44

The fourth one down, is it Tekken?

0:33:440:33:46

Tekken.

0:33:460:33:48

Tekken, say Beverley and Tracey. Tekken.

0:33:480:33:52

Now, Jordan and Sam, do you fancy talking us through that board?

0:33:520:33:56

I think the top one's Super Mario.

0:33:560:33:58

Then it's Grand Theft Auto.

0:33:580:34:00

I don't know the next one.

0:34:000:34:01

We thought the T one was Tetris.

0:34:010:34:03

And then the one below that is Donkey Kong.

0:34:030:34:05

Go for Tetris, yeah?

0:34:050:34:07

-Yeah.

-Yeah, we'll go for Tetris.

0:34:070:34:10

You're going for Tetris.

0:34:100:34:11

So, two answers competing for the same slot there.

0:34:110:34:14

Only one of them can be right.

0:34:140:34:16

Tekken is what Beverley and Tracey have gone for.

0:34:160:34:18

Let's see if that's right.

0:34:180:34:19

-No.

-Sorry.

0:34:220:34:24

-It's OK.

-We don't definitely know Tetris is right.

0:34:240:34:26

Let's see if that's right.

0:34:260:34:28

If it is, you'll be going through to the final.

0:34:280:34:30

Tetris, is it right?

0:34:300:34:31

It is right.

0:34:340:34:35

Tetris sees you, Sam and Jordan,

0:34:350:34:38

through to the final.

0:34:380:34:39

Very well done, indeed.

0:34:390:34:41

17 is what it scored.

0:34:410:34:42

But, most importantly, it was right

0:34:420:34:44

and it means that, after three questions,

0:34:440:34:46

you are through to the final 2-1.

0:34:460:34:48

-Well done.

-That's very, very unlucky.

0:34:480:34:49

Tekken is actually... That's the name of the Liam Neeson film

0:34:490:34:52

where his daughter is kidnapped in Yorkshire.

0:34:520:34:54

But Tekken is a computer game and it fits.

0:34:560:34:58

From 1994, Tekken.

0:34:580:35:00

So, it's unlucky.

0:35:000:35:01

Super Mario at the top there.

0:35:010:35:03

That would have scored 25.

0:35:040:35:06

Then Grand Theft Auto.

0:35:060:35:07

It would have scored 61.

0:35:070:35:09

We'll go down to the bottom now.

0:35:090:35:12

That is Donkey Kong.

0:35:120:35:14

Donkey Kong would have scored you 40.

0:35:140:35:16

Now, the middle one is actually the lowest scorer

0:35:160:35:18

and everybody with kids would have heard of it,

0:35:180:35:20

but I couldn't get it from the letters.

0:35:200:35:22

Have you worked out what it is?

0:35:220:35:24

Of course. Yeah, only when you said with kids.

0:35:240:35:26

-Yeah.

-Minecraft.

-Minecraft, that's exactly right.

0:35:260:35:29

That would have scored you 8 points.

0:35:290:35:30

So, well done if you said that at home.

0:35:300:35:32

Thank you very much. So the pair leaving us at the end

0:35:320:35:35

of the head-to-head round, Beverley and Tracey, I'm so sorry it is you.

0:35:350:35:38

Such a strong performance across the show today.

0:35:380:35:40

You've been absolutely brilliant.

0:35:400:35:41

It's been lovely having you on both shows. Thanks so much for playing.

0:35:410:35:44

-Beverley and Tracey.

-Thank you.

0:35:440:35:46

APPLAUSE

0:35:460:35:47

But for Sam and Jordan

0:35:480:35:49

it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:490:35:51

Well, congratulations, Sam and Jordan.

0:35:540:35:57

You have fought off all of the competition

0:35:570:35:59

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:590:36:02

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:36:070:36:10

At the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £1,000.

0:36:100:36:13

There it is. Well, your first answer on the show was Meryl Streep.

0:36:130:36:17

We had the Streep/Smith confusion.

0:36:170:36:19

But we can put all that behind us now

0:36:190:36:21

because here you are in the final.

0:36:210:36:23

You came from behind in the head-to-head,

0:36:230:36:25

so double congratulations there.

0:36:250:36:27

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

0:36:270:36:30

Well, supposedly films are my strong point,

0:36:300:36:32

but as evidenced by the first round, it's, you know...?

0:36:320:36:35

-Yeah.

-Always tough under those lights, though.

0:36:350:36:37

Well, you know what happens, we put four categories up on the board.

0:36:370:36:40

You choose the one that scares you the least and we take it from there.

0:36:400:36:44

So, very, very best of luck.

0:36:440:36:45

Let's see what today's categories look like.

0:36:450:36:47

We have got...

0:36:470:36:49

You're probably better with the football.

0:36:550:36:58

-Yeah, but 2010 might be broader.

-Yeah.

0:36:580:37:00

-They're all about time...

-2010, it could have the General Election.

0:37:000:37:04

-Yeah.

-World Cup.

-Shall we just go for 2010 and then we can both...?

0:37:040:37:07

-Are you sure?

-Yeah.

0:37:070:37:08

-OK, yeah.

-OK, yeah, we'll go for the year 2010.

0:37:080:37:11

-OK, the year 2010.

-OK, very best of luck, gents.

0:37:110:37:13

Three very different questions here.

0:37:130:37:15

You mentioned the World Cup, that's your very first question.

0:37:150:37:17

We're looking for anybody who scored a goal in the 2010 World Cup finals

0:37:170:37:21

in South Africa. We are looking for any artist who had a track on

0:37:210:37:25

Now That's What I call Music 75,

0:37:250:37:27

that came out in 2010.

0:37:270:37:28

Or we're looking for anybody who appeared in the film

0:37:280:37:32

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part One,

0:37:320:37:35

according to IMDB.

0:37:350:37:36

So, 2010 World Cup goal-scorers,

0:37:360:37:38

artists on Now That's What I Call Music 75,

0:37:380:37:40

or cast members of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part One.

0:37:400:37:43

-Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much indeed.

0:37:430:37:45

Now, as always, you've got up to

0:37:450:37:47

one minute to come up with three answers.

0:37:470:37:49

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

0:37:490:37:51

Pointless. Are you ready?

0:37:510:37:54

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

0:37:540:37:56

Your time starts now.

0:37:560:37:58

-OK, you know Harry Potter.

-Yeah.

0:37:580:38:01

The cast... There's quite a lot...

0:38:010:38:03

Natalia Tena, she played Tonks. That could be quite a good one.

0:38:060:38:09

Yeah. I think I've got a World Cup one.

0:38:090:38:11

-OK.

-Someone from North Korea.

0:38:110:38:12

I don't know if he scored though. Jong Tae-se.

0:38:120:38:15

-OK, yeah.

-Go for it. Why not?

0:38:150:38:18

Shall we say Natalia Tena?

0:38:180:38:20

-Yeah.

-That guy and...

0:38:200:38:22

What's...

0:38:230:38:24

The guy who played Mad-Eye, what's he called?

0:38:260:38:28

-I don't know!

-His son's in it and I can't remember his name.

0:38:280:38:31

Gosh. OK.

0:38:330:38:36

Who played Fred and George in that?

0:38:360:38:38

-It's the twins...

-Oliver Phelps.

0:38:380:38:40

James and Oliver Phelps.

0:38:400:38:42

-So shall we say...

-Say one of them.

0:38:420:38:44

Yeah. Oliver Phelps?

0:38:440:38:46

-Yeah.

-Ten seconds.

-Because James...

-OK, yeah.

0:38:460:38:48

Oliver's a less common name.

0:38:480:38:50

So, shall we go Oliver Phelps, Natalia Tena and...

0:38:500:38:53

-Jong Tae-se.

-OK.

0:38:530:38:55

-Cool.

-OK, sounds like you've got your three answers.

0:38:550:38:57

That is your minute up now.

0:38:570:38:59

Tell me what your answers are and tell me which category,

0:38:590:39:01

just in case I confuse Harry Potter cast members

0:39:010:39:04

with goal-scorers in 2010.

0:39:040:39:05

For the cast of...

0:39:050:39:07

We've got two for that one.

0:39:070:39:09

-Natalia Tena.

-Natalia Tena.

0:39:090:39:11

Yep. And Oliver Phelps.

0:39:110:39:13

Oliver Phelps.

0:39:130:39:15

Yeah, and for the World Cup goal-scorers,

0:39:150:39:17

I think there was a North Korean called Jong Tae-se.

0:39:170:39:20

Jong Tae-se. OK, of those three,

0:39:200:39:22

which do you think is your best shot at a pointless answer?

0:39:220:39:25

I'm not sure it's right, you know.

0:39:250:39:27

-OK.

-I reckon Natalia Tena?

0:39:270:39:30

-OK, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:39:300:39:31

OK, Natalia Tena you think is your best shot.

0:39:310:39:33

We'll put Natalia Tena last.

0:39:330:39:35

Least likely to be pointless?

0:39:350:39:37

-Oliver Phelps.

-Yes.

-Oliver Phelps we put first.

0:39:370:39:39

-And Jong Tae-se in the middle.

-Yeah.

0:39:390:39:40

Well, let's put those answers up on the board in the middle, then,

0:39:400:39:43

and here they are. We have got...

0:39:430:39:46

Three great answers on the board there.

0:39:510:39:52

They look fantastic. I've no idea if they're right or not,

0:39:520:39:55

but they look brilliant.

0:39:550:39:56

If one of those turns out to be pointless and ends up winning you

0:39:560:40:00

that money, what would you like to do with it?

0:40:000:40:02

£1,000 there.

0:40:020:40:03

-Sam, you first.

-Because I'm a student and living in Brighton,

0:40:030:40:07

it's going to be dead expensive and I'm getting a house next year,

0:40:070:40:10

so it would massively help towards that.

0:40:100:40:12

Very good, very good.

0:40:120:40:14

Very handy. Jordan, how about you?

0:40:140:40:15

For my 21st, I want to go to Vegas.

0:40:150:40:17

So I'll put that in the bank and it will...

0:40:170:40:20

it'll be a little help towards that, yeah.

0:40:200:40:22

There we are. Best of luck. Three good answers on the board.

0:40:220:40:24

Your first answer was Oliver Phelps.

0:40:240:40:26

In this case, we're looking for cast members of

0:40:260:40:29

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part One.

0:40:290:40:31

You have gone for Oliver Phelps.

0:40:310:40:33

If this is pointless, you will win £1,000.

0:40:330:40:35

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

0:40:350:40:38

It's right.

0:40:410:40:42

Now, if Oliver Phelps takes us all the way down to zero,

0:40:420:40:45

you leave here immediately with £1,000 in your back pocket.

0:40:450:40:47

Down we go, through the 20s and into the teens.

0:40:470:40:50

Into single figures.

0:40:500:40:51

Oliver Phelps now takes us down...

0:40:510:40:53

CHEERING

0:40:530:40:55

That is fantastic! Well done.

0:40:550:40:57

Very well done, indeed. Congratulations.

0:41:020:41:03

Oliver Phelps was a pointless answer,

0:41:030:41:05

which means you go home with that jackpot of £1,000.

0:41:050:41:08

Very well done indeed, Sam and Jordan.

0:41:080:41:10

APPLAUSE

0:41:100:41:12

Yeah, no mucking about there, gents, at all.

0:41:140:41:16

Very, very well played. It won't surprise you to know that

0:41:160:41:18

Natalia Tena was also a pointless answer. Well done.

0:41:180:41:21

Jong Tae-se was not a pointless answer, I'm afraid,

0:41:210:41:23

but he did play for North Korea but didn't score in the game.

0:41:230:41:25

But it doesn't matter at all because you've won the money anyway.

0:41:250:41:28

Lots of pointless answers in the different categories.

0:41:280:41:30

Let's take a look through them.

0:41:300:41:31

We'll start with the World Cup goal-scorers.

0:41:310:41:34

Loads and loads of pointless answers here.

0:41:340:41:36

Jermaine Defoe scored for England.

0:41:360:41:37

Miroslav Klose, who scored four goals.

0:41:370:41:40

Wesley Sneijder scored five goals.

0:41:400:41:41

Yaya Toure.

0:41:410:41:43

Arjen Robben, Carles Puyol, Carlos Tevez, David Villa, Didier Drogba,

0:41:430:41:47

Diego Forlan, Dirk Kuyt, Klaas Jan Huntelaar,

0:41:470:41:50

Matthew Upson - another English player.

0:41:500:41:52

Mesut Ozil, Tim Cahill, Samuel Eto'o, Robin van Persie.

0:41:520:41:54

The only ones who scored any points at all were

0:41:540:41:57

Cristiano Ronaldo, Thomas Mueller, Luis Suarez,

0:41:570:42:00

Steven Gerard, Clint Dempsey and Andres Iniesta.

0:42:000:42:03

Everybody else is a pointless answer.

0:42:030:42:04

Well done, if you got one.

0:42:040:42:06

Lots and lots of pointless answers

0:42:060:42:08

on the artists on Now That's What I Call Music 75.

0:42:080:42:12

You could have had Jedward.

0:42:120:42:15

Since when are Jedward pointless?

0:42:150:42:17

There's two of them, they're like double pointless.

0:42:180:42:21

Genuinely lovely boys, though, the two of them.

0:42:210:42:23

Loads of pointless answers. Everyone apart from Lady Gaga,

0:42:260:42:29

Robbie Williams, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Rihanna.

0:42:290:42:32

Everyone else a pointless answer.

0:42:320:42:33

The cast of Harry Potter, so many pointless answers in this category.

0:42:330:42:37

Some very big ones here.

0:42:370:42:38

Everyone is a pointless answer apart from Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson,

0:42:410:42:44

Alan Rickman, Rupert Grint, Julie Walters, Robbie Coltrane,

0:42:440:42:47

Ralph Fiennes, Imelda Staunton, Michael Gambon, Mark Williams

0:42:470:42:49

and Helena Bonham Carter.

0:42:490:42:51

Every other cast member is a pointless answer.

0:42:510:42:53

So very well done if you said one.

0:42:530:42:55

You made short work of our jackpot there, gents.

0:42:550:42:57

-Very well done.

-Thank you, Richard.

0:42:570:42:59

Thanks once again to our winning players Sam and Jordan,

0:42:590:43:01

who got away with today's jackpot of £1,000.

0:43:010:43:03

Very well done.

0:43:030:43:05

APPLAUSE

0:43:050:43:08

Join us next time when we'll be

0:43:080:43:09

putting more obscure knowledge to the test on Pointless.

0:43:090:43:11

Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

0:43:110:43:13

-Goodbye.

-And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.

0:43:130:43:16
