0:00:200:00:22

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:220:00:23

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

0:00:230:00:26

the show where, the more obscure your knowledge,

0:00:260:00:28

the better your chances of winning. Let's meet today's players.

0:00:280:00:31

And couple number one.

0:00:350:00:37

Hi, I'm Anna, and this is my mum, Norma, and we're from Abingdon.

0:00:370:00:40

-Couple number two.

-Hi, I'm Jason, and this is Sarah,

0:00:400:00:42

and we're both teachers from Southampton.

0:00:420:00:44

Couple number three.

0:00:440:00:45

Hi, I'm Allistair, this is my dad, Richard, and we're from Edinburgh.

0:00:450:00:49

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:490:00:50

Hello, my name's Mike, I'm from Woodgreen in the New Forest,

0:00:500:00:53

and this is my friend Adam, who's from Bournemouth.

0:00:530:00:55

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:550:00:57

APPLAUSE

0:00:570:00:59

Thanks very much, all of you. Welcome to Pointless.

0:00:590:01:01

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

0:01:010:01:03

as it goes along.

0:01:030:01:04

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

0:01:040:01:07

He's on another level.

0:01:070:01:08

In fact, he's IN another level.

0:01:080:01:10

And tonight, baby, he wants to get freaky with you.

0:01:100:01:13

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

0:01:130:01:15

Hiya.

0:01:150:01:16

Hey, everybody. Good afternoon.

0:01:160:01:19

I honestly think that's too obscure a song to use as a reference.

0:01:210:01:24

-Really?

-If you don't know there's a band called Another Level who had

0:01:240:01:27

a song called I Wanna Get Freaky With You,

0:01:270:01:29

then that introduction is weird.

0:01:290:01:32

Oh, they'll enjoy it, even if they don't understand it.

0:01:320:01:34

It'll just be one of those weird intros.

0:01:340:01:37

-Do you think?

-Lord knows they've had enough of them.

0:01:370:01:39

They sure have! We have two returning pairs from the last show -

0:01:390:01:42

welcome back, Norma and Anna.

0:01:420:01:43

-Thank you.

-Got knocked out in Round One...

0:01:430:01:45

-BOTH:

-We did.

-..in the last show, so fingers crossed we'll see more of you.

0:01:450:01:48

Richard and Allistair, knocked out in Round Two as well.

0:01:480:01:50

For the two shows in a row now, where, in our jackpot round,

0:01:500:01:53

we've had a two-point answer as our last answer.

0:01:530:01:55

So, it's been exciting.

0:01:550:01:56

-It has.

-So, nice for the show and nice for everyone here

0:01:560:01:59

because it means no-one's won the jackpot for a couple of shows.

0:01:590:02:01

It's getting bigger, that jackpot.

0:02:010:02:03

Thank you. Ed and Andrew didn't win the jackpot last time

0:02:030:02:05

is what we're saying, so we add another £1,000 to that,

0:02:050:02:08

so today's jackpot starts off at £4,000. There we are.

0:02:080:02:12

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

0:02:140:02:17

OK, remember this. The pair with the highest score at the end of each

0:02:230:02:26

round will be eliminated.

0:02:260:02:28

So, your only task, really, is to make sure those scores are lovely

0:02:280:02:31

and low and you'll be fine. Best of luck to all four pairs.

0:02:310:02:34

Our first category this afternoon is...

0:02:340:02:37

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

0:02:390:02:42

who is going to go second? And, whoever is going first,

0:02:420:02:44

please step up to the podium.

0:02:440:02:46

OK, and the question concerns...

0:02:490:02:51

-Richard?

-Yeah, we're going to show you seven pairs of film titles here.

0:02:560:03:00

They share a word and we've missed out that word.

0:03:000:03:02

Strangely enough, they also share an actor,

0:03:020:03:04

who we're going to give you on the board.

0:03:040:03:05

So, we're just looking for the word that's missing from the

0:03:050:03:08

titles you're about to see.

0:03:080:03:09

Seven on the first board, seven on the second, 14 in all.

0:03:090:03:11

-Good luck.

-So, what are the missing words from these film titles?

0:03:110:03:15

And we have on our first board...

0:03:150:03:17

We're halfway through! Bear with me, I'm going to go back in.

0:03:460:03:49

Right, Anna, welcome back to Pointless.

0:04:070:04:09

Round One last time.

0:04:090:04:10

Anna, remind us what you do.

0:04:100:04:12

I'm a maths student at St Andrews University.

0:04:120:04:14

And how is that going, St Andrews University?

0:04:140:04:16

Did you know St Andrews at all before you started there?

0:04:160:04:19

No, not at all. The first time I visited was for the open day.

0:04:190:04:23

Did you know Scotland particularly well?

0:04:230:04:24

-No, it was also the first time I went to Scotland.

-So, there you are.

0:04:240:04:27

That's terrible, first time in Scotland.

0:04:270:04:29

But still, nice that you're there now,

0:04:290:04:31

putting some Scottish roots down.

0:04:310:04:32

What do you like getting up to, Anna?

0:04:320:04:34

When I'm at home, I do a lot of walking with my dog.

0:04:340:04:36

We've got a little springer spaniel puppy,

0:04:360:04:38

so he takes a lot of my time up in the holidays and stuff.

0:04:380:04:41

And then a lot more lazy when I'm at uni.

0:04:410:04:43

So, less of that!

0:04:430:04:44

As it should be. Now, Anna, there we are.

0:04:440:04:47

Here are our films that share words and actors, which is impressive,

0:04:470:04:52

-I think.

-It is! OK, I'm going to go for...

0:04:520:04:56

..the Tom Hanks one and say Saving.

0:04:580:05:00

Saving Mr Banks, Saving Private Ryan,

0:05:000:05:02

let's see if it's right,

0:05:020:05:03

let's see how many people said it.

0:05:030:05:05

It's right.

0:05:070:05:09

-Sorry!

-Oh! 86.

0:05:100:05:12

You've made a saving of 14 points there.

0:05:140:05:16

-There we are.

-That's a big, big start.

0:05:160:05:19

The very famous Omaha Beach scene in Saving Private Ryan

0:05:190:05:22

was an extraordinary bit of cinema.

0:05:220:05:24

Cost 11 million.

0:05:240:05:26

Wow!

0:05:270:05:29

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:05:290:05:31

Now, Sarah, welcome to Pointless, lovely to have you here.

0:05:310:05:33

-Thank you.

-From County Durham?

0:05:330:05:35

-Yeah.

-Lovely, and what do you do, Sarah?

0:05:350:05:38

I've just finished a degree in popular music journalism.

0:05:380:05:42

Oh, that's fun!

0:05:420:05:43

-At Southampton Uni.

-Did you have a brilliant time there?

0:05:430:05:46

-It was OK!

-What was the highlight for you?

0:05:460:05:49

So, have you been doing lots of music journalism?

0:05:490:05:53

I think I really enjoyed, like,

0:05:530:05:54

reviewing gigs and stuff like that, mostly.

0:05:540:05:56

But that's what music journalism is, isn't it?

0:05:560:05:58

-That's mostly what it is, like, reviews.

-What else?

0:05:580:06:00

I suppose you review albums and singles, I suppose.

0:06:000:06:03

-Yeah.

-Right, now, where are we, Sarah

0:06:030:06:06

vis-a-vis film titles that share words?

0:06:060:06:09

I was going to go for the Tom Hanks one.

0:06:090:06:12

Good job you didn't then, now we know what it scored.

0:06:120:06:14

I'm going to guess the Doris Day one and say Wild.

0:06:140:06:19

You're going to say...

0:06:190:06:21

..Wild Man With A Horn and Wild At Heart.

0:06:220:06:25

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

0:06:250:06:28

-Oh! No, I'm afraid, on this occasion...

-Oops!

0:06:320:06:35

..that's an incorrect answer, Sarah,

0:06:350:06:37

and that scores you 100 points.

0:06:370:06:39

Whatever that first word's going to turn out to be,

0:06:390:06:42

that's a curious name for a film.

0:06:420:06:43

I'm just going to say that now.

0:06:450:06:46

Yeah, well, certainly for a Doris Day film.

0:06:460:06:49

Richard, welcome back.

0:06:490:06:51

Great to have you here.

0:06:510:06:52

We discovered last time that you now live in Cheltenham.

0:06:520:06:55

You married and lived in Cheltenham, got you away from Edinburgh.

0:06:550:06:59

That it has indeed, yes.

0:06:590:07:00

But you were talking about your vinyl collection.

0:07:000:07:02

-I was.

-Your re-established vinyl collection and I wanted to know,

0:07:020:07:06

did you have an interest in music before your financial services?

0:07:060:07:10

Very much so, yeah. I was brought up in music and I was even a DJ back in

0:07:100:07:14

the '80s, so there you go.

0:07:140:07:16

So, what, just playing sort of parties and things?

0:07:160:07:18

Yeah, no, working in nightclubs.

0:07:180:07:20

But not doing the special things

0:07:200:07:23

they do now and all that kind of stuff.

0:07:230:07:25

You weren't a superstar DJ?

0:07:250:07:26

-Not really, no, no.

-I tell you what,

0:07:260:07:28

if you want a definition of the word unimpressed,

0:07:280:07:30

you want to look at your son's face.

0:07:300:07:31

LAUGHTER

0:07:310:07:34

Literally, he's like, "Yeah."

0:07:340:07:36

-He's heard it before.

-Richard,

0:07:360:07:38

what would you like to go for on our board here?

0:07:380:07:40

I'm going to go relatively safe now and say the top one.

0:07:440:07:47

I hope that it's safe.

0:07:470:07:49

Mystic River, The River Wild.

0:07:490:07:51

OK, River, says Richard.

0:07:510:07:53

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

0:07:530:07:55

It is River. 86 is our low score and you passed that quite comfortably.

0:07:570:08:02

Down it goes. River Wild.

0:08:020:08:03

That's very good indeed, 23.

0:08:030:08:05

Great work, Richard, well played.

0:08:100:08:11

Yeah, it's a good film, Mystic River.

0:08:110:08:13

Quite bleak but very good.

0:08:130:08:15

I haven't seen it. Thank you very much indeed.

0:08:150:08:18

-Now, Mike.

-Hello.

0:08:180:08:19

Welcome to Pointless, great to have you here.

0:08:190:08:21

-What do you do, Mike?

-I'm a data analyst for one of the big banks.

0:08:210:08:26

And how long have you been analysing this data?

0:08:260:08:29

Oh, more years than I would care to admit to.

0:08:290:08:32

-What are your interests, Mike?

-I love movies,

0:08:320:08:35

ever since I was little.

0:08:350:08:36

This is good.

0:08:370:08:39

That's good.

0:08:390:08:40

And I like going for walks in the New Forest, where I live.

0:08:400:08:42

Very nice indeed. Do you have a dog?

0:08:420:08:44

-I've got two dogs.

-What are they called?

-Penny and Charlie.

0:08:440:08:47

They've just gone nuts cos they heard you saying that on the telly.

0:08:470:08:50

-They are now going woof, woof!

-Ah.

0:08:500:08:52

What sort of dogs are they?

0:08:520:08:53

A dachshund and a Cairn terrier.

0:08:530:08:55

Ah. Lovely, do they get on with the horses,

0:08:550:08:58

the many horses of the New Forest?

0:08:580:08:59

-They do, they get very excited.

-Oh, that's nice.

0:08:590:09:01

Now, Mike, you are the last person.

0:09:010:09:03

And do you know, I think you can mop this up,

0:09:030:09:05

because this fits precisely into your area of expertise?

0:09:050:09:08

Well, Tom Cruise is Tropic Thunder and Days Of Thunder.

0:09:080:09:13

I can't think what the Sean Connery film is.

0:09:130:09:16

Possibly Man, but I don't know for sure.

0:09:160:09:19

I really can't think what the Morgan Freeman one is.

0:09:190:09:21

Black Dahlia and Black Hawk Down,

0:09:210:09:23

but I'm going to go for Young Man With A Horn

0:09:230:09:26

and Young At Heart.

0:09:260:09:28

OK, let's go for Young for those two.

0:09:280:09:32

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

0:09:320:09:34

32, very well done indeed.

0:09:420:09:44

Good answer there, Mike.

0:09:450:09:46

You are correct about Tropic Thunder, Days Of Thunder.

0:09:490:09:52

That would have scored you 56 points.

0:09:520:09:55

Your hunch on the next one was right as well,

0:09:550:09:58

it's The Next Man and A Good Man In Africa.

0:09:580:09:59

It would have scored you 9 points,

0:09:590:10:01

so it would have been a risky one to do,

0:10:010:10:02

especially when there's a team on 100, but your instincts were right.

0:10:020:10:06

Last Vegas and Last Knights.

0:10:060:10:10

Morgan Freeman, 7 points.

0:10:100:10:11

And you are quite correct about the bottom one -

0:10:110:10:13

The Black Dahlia and Black Hawk Down.

0:10:130:10:16

That would have scored 71 points.

0:10:160:10:18

So, Last is the best answer up there.

0:10:180:10:19

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:10:190:10:21

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

0:10:210:10:24

23, Richard And Allistair.

0:10:240:10:25

There we are, very well done indeed.

0:10:250:10:27

Nice, low-scoring skills there.

0:10:270:10:29

32 is where we find Mike and Adam, 86 - quite a jump -

0:10:290:10:32

is where we find Anna and Norma,

0:10:320:10:34

and then up to 100, where we find Sarah and Jason.

0:10:340:10:36

So, Jason, you know what you have to do.

0:10:360:10:39

You might be able to keep yourselves out of trouble.

0:10:390:10:41

Best of luck with that. We're going to come back down the line now.

0:10:410:10:43

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:10:430:10:46

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

0:10:490:10:51

and here they are.

0:10:510:10:53

We have got...

0:10:530:10:54

I'm going to read those all again.

0:11:150:11:16

There we are, Adam, welcome.

0:11:330:11:35

Good to have you with us, Adam.

0:11:350:11:36

-What do you do?

-I write computer systems for big banks,

0:11:360:11:40

so that they can... People like Mike can analyse the data.

0:11:400:11:43

Can analyse the data.

0:11:430:11:45

-Yes, it's all data-based.

-Oh, so you're part of the chain there.

0:11:450:11:47

Adam's doing it, you're providing the data, passing it to Mike...

0:11:470:11:51

-That's exactly right.

-..for him to analyse.

0:11:510:11:53

So, do you meet through work?

0:11:530:11:55

Yeah, we met about 30 years ago.

0:11:550:11:57

Ah! Doing exactly the same jobs?

0:11:570:11:59

-No.

-No?

-Slightly different jobs, more clerical jobs when we started.

0:11:590:12:02

In those days, were you providing something clerical for Mike,

0:12:020:12:05

-for him to just look at...?

-That's very much what happened.

0:12:050:12:08

OK, there we are. Adam, what do you like getting up to when you're not doing that system stuff?

0:12:080:12:12

I like going to a lot to live shows, like the theatre.

0:12:120:12:16

I like going to see music gigs.

0:12:160:12:18

I've been to the Rugby World Cup.

0:12:180:12:20

When the Olympics was in London,

0:12:200:12:22

I got to see Usain Bolt and have been to quite a few of those.

0:12:220:12:26

Very exciting indeed.

0:12:260:12:28

Anyway, this will do for the time being, I should imagine.

0:12:280:12:30

-I think so, yeah.

-Nice low scores from that end of the line.

0:12:300:12:34

32 means that 67 or less means you won't even become the high-scorers

0:12:340:12:38

after two answers.

0:12:380:12:40

-What would you like to go for?

-I know a few.

0:12:400:12:43

But I think the one I'll go for is Five Easy Pieces, Easy Rider.

0:12:430:12:47

Easy for Jack Nicholson.

0:12:470:12:49

OK, here is your red line, let's see how easy it is.

0:12:490:12:51

How many of our 100 people said it?

0:12:510:12:53

It's right.

0:12:560:12:57

And you are through, very well done indeed.

0:12:580:13:01

47.

0:13:010:13:02

47, and your total is 79.

0:13:020:13:05

Yeah, he was nominated for Oscars for both of those,

0:13:060:13:08

and in successive years as well.

0:13:080:13:10

Hm. Thank you, Richard.

0:13:100:13:12

Now, Allistair,

0:13:120:13:14

welcome back. Now, remind us what you do.

0:13:140:13:16

I'm an assistant manager at a live music venue in Edinburgh.

0:13:160:13:19

A live music venue in Edinburgh.

0:13:190:13:21

Now, does your live music venue

0:13:210:13:23

become extra busy during the festival?

0:13:230:13:26

-Do you have...?

-Usually.

0:13:260:13:28

We have had acts on in the festival, but, at the moment,

0:13:280:13:32

we're not doing that due to other bookings that we have.

0:13:320:13:35

Oh, so someone's got a private party.

0:13:350:13:37

Basically, yeah.

0:13:370:13:38

Basically, we can't have anything for the festival,

0:13:380:13:41

-which is a shame.

-Oh, that's a shame.

-Yeah.

0:13:410:13:42

Now, Allistair, how are we feeling about these films?

0:13:420:13:45

There's a couple up there. Well, there's a couple that I know

0:13:450:13:48

and there's one I think I know.

0:13:480:13:49

And so I'm going to go for that one and say Denzel Washington, Fire.

0:13:490:13:53

Fire. Man On Fire, Courage Under Fire.

0:13:540:13:57

It makes perfect sense. There is your red line.

0:13:570:13:59

If you can get under that, you are through to the next round.

0:13:590:14:02

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

0:14:020:14:04

Look at that, very well done

0:14:080:14:10

indeed - 67.

0:14:100:14:11

That is brilliant economy, is what that is, Allistair.

0:14:110:14:14

Takes your total up to 90 and sees you through.

0:14:140:14:17

I think we've got to doff our cap to the Pointless question researchers

0:14:170:14:20

for coming up with 14 pairs of films,

0:14:200:14:22

all of which share a star and a word.

0:14:220:14:25

I mean, that's painstaking research.

0:14:250:14:27

-It's impressive, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:14:270:14:29

Thank you very much indeed.

0:14:290:14:30

Now, Jason, welcome.

0:14:300:14:32

-What do you do, Jason?

-I'm a student at Southampton Solent.

0:14:320:14:35

So, you're still there?

0:14:350:14:36

Sarah has now gone. What are you studying there?

0:14:360:14:39

-Law and criminology.

-And how much longer have you got to go?

0:14:390:14:41

-I've got another two years.

-Another two years?

0:14:410:14:44

You are enjoying the law and criminology?

0:14:440:14:46

-Yeah, it's really good.

-That's good.

0:14:460:14:47

Jason, you are on 100, you are our high-scorers.

0:14:470:14:50

Some of these people have already given two answers.

0:14:500:14:53

Well, we have a contest on our hands here.

0:14:530:14:55

So, it is between you and Norma.

0:14:550:14:57

She has a slight advantage.

0:14:570:14:58

Um...

0:14:580:15:00

I'm going to go for Gene Hackman,

0:15:020:15:03

Behind Enemy Lines and Enemy Of The State.

0:15:030:15:06

Enemy for Gene Hackman.

0:15:060:15:07

No red line for you, as you are the high-scorers.

0:15:070:15:09

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

0:15:090:15:12

It's right. Oh!

0:15:150:15:16

83.

0:15:170:15:18

That's a big score.

0:15:200:15:22

183 is your total, but you are still...

0:15:220:15:25

There's a world in which you might make it through to the next round.

0:15:250:15:28

Of course, NME is the sort of answer a music journalism student

0:15:280:15:31

-should get.

-There you are, exactly.

0:15:310:15:33

There we go. Now, Norma,

0:15:340:15:37

-welcome back.

-Thank you.

0:15:370:15:39

Welcome back. Remind us what you do.

0:15:390:15:40

I'm a speech and language therapist.

0:15:400:15:43

Speech and language therapist.

0:15:430:15:44

And also a fantastic cook.

0:15:440:15:46

Well, I'd like to think so.

0:15:460:15:48

Basically, I was picking this up

0:15:480:15:50

-just from some of the comments last time.

-Yeah.

0:15:500:15:53

What sort of things do you cook?

0:15:530:15:55

If you were cooking a dinner party and you really wanted to show off,

0:15:550:15:58

what would you do?

0:15:580:16:00

I really love Indian food,

0:16:000:16:02

so I would probably go for a spread of dishes,

0:16:020:16:05

maybe a main biryani or something, and little vegetable side dishes.

0:16:050:16:10

And we love to make our own naan bread and chapatis.

0:16:100:16:13

Have you got a special oven for that?

0:16:130:16:15

-Or just put it in a normal oven?

-No, it would be much better if we had the tandoor.

0:16:150:16:18

We just have to crank our oven up really high.

0:16:180:16:20

So, hang on, how do you do that?

0:16:200:16:22

-You put it on a little paddle and pop it in.

-Yeah, under the grill.

0:16:220:16:25

Poppadom? Sorry. There we are.

0:16:250:16:27

You do it under the grill and it puffs up like magic, actually.

0:16:270:16:30

-Yeah!

-Mm! What are you going to go for?

0:16:300:16:33

But bearing in mind you want to score 96 or less.

0:16:340:16:38

Oh, OK. Right, well, I think that that might be Playing By Heart

0:16:380:16:41

and A Mighty Heart -

0:16:410:16:43

about the Daniel Pearl journalist.

0:16:430:16:45

I think it's American Hustle and American Psycho

0:16:450:16:48

for the Christian Bale one. I don't know the Rock Hudson one.

0:16:480:16:53

But presumably, that bottom one

0:16:530:16:55

is Dangerous Liaisons and Dangerous Minds.

0:16:550:16:58

I think I'll go for American Hustle and American Psycho.

0:17:010:17:03

American Hustle, American Psycho, here is your red line.

0:17:030:17:07

Get below that, you're through.

0:17:070:17:08

How many of our 100 people went for American?

0:17:080:17:11

It's right and you're through.

0:17:130:17:15

54, perfectly good.

0:17:170:17:20

Takes your total up to 140.

0:17:200:17:22

You took us through the board very nicely.

0:17:220:17:24

Playing By Heart and A Mighty Heart, as you say,

0:17:240:17:26

it's the Daniel Pearl movie.

0:17:260:17:28

That would have been the best answer, 7 points for that.

0:17:280:17:31

Very well done, anyone who said that at home.

0:17:310:17:33

-Lover?

-Come Back?

0:17:330:17:35

Lover Come Back, Come September.

0:17:350:17:37

Rock Hudson film, 30 points.

0:17:370:17:39

And Dangerous Liaisons, Dangerous Minds.

0:17:390:17:41

-That would have scored 58.

-Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:17:420:17:45

So, at the end of our first round, one pair we have to send home

0:17:450:17:48

and I am sorry to say, Jason and Sarah, it is you.

0:17:480:17:51

However, you will be back next time.

0:17:510:17:52

We'll look forward to that very much and I hope you'll go much further

0:17:520:17:55

then. But in the meantime, thanks very much, Jason and Sarah.

0:17:550:18:01

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

0:18:010:18:04

And so, three pairs remain.

0:18:080:18:09

You're going to have to fight it out between you to see who stays at the

0:18:090:18:12

end and who leaves at the end of this round.

0:18:120:18:15

Richard, the lowest score,

0:18:150:18:17

the lowest individual scorer of that round,

0:18:170:18:19

so very well done. Mike and Adam, the lowest combined,

0:18:190:18:21

so very well done indeed.

0:18:210:18:22

Norma and Anna, well done,

0:18:220:18:24

you knew a lovely low-scoring answer, but I think you probably did

0:18:240:18:26

the right thing. Just better to be safe than sorry.

0:18:260:18:29

Best of luck to all three pairs.

0:18:290:18:30

Our category for Round Two today is...

0:18:300:18:33

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

0:18:330:18:36

who's going to go second? And whoever is going first,

0:18:360:18:38

please step up to the podium.

0:18:380:18:40

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

0:18:430:18:45

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name...

0:18:450:18:48

-Richard?

-Yeah. So, we're looking for anyone who's ever got

0:18:550:18:58

to the quarterfinals or beyond of a World Snooker Championship,

0:18:580:19:01

from 1977 all the way through to 2016, please.

0:19:010:19:04

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:19:040:19:06

So, there we are. Norma, it's like a dream come true.

0:19:060:19:09

A snooker round!

0:19:090:19:12

Um, Graeme Dott, is that a snooker player?

0:19:130:19:16

-Graeme Dott.

-Yeah.

0:19:160:19:18

Graeme Dott, OK, let's see if that is right.

0:19:180:19:20

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

0:19:200:19:23

It is a snooker player.

0:19:250:19:27

And it's a very, very good answer.

0:19:320:19:34

Norma, very well done indeed, Graeme Dott.

0:19:340:19:36

Scoring you 4, like a brown.

0:19:380:19:41

Yeah, world champion in 2006, Graeme Dott.

0:19:410:19:43

See, that's the mark of someone super bright.

0:19:430:19:46

When a category comes up they know nothing about,

0:19:460:19:48

they still get a pretty solid answer there.

0:19:480:19:50

-So, it's very well played.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:19:500:19:53

OK, now, Richard?

0:19:530:19:55

Yes.

0:19:550:19:56

-HE SIGHS

-Stuck between two. Um...

0:19:560:19:59

I'll go with Peter Ebdon.

0:20:000:20:02

Peter Ebdon, says Richard.

0:20:020:20:03

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

0:20:030:20:05

It's right.

0:20:080:20:09

It's another good answer, look at that.

0:20:150:20:17

2, Peter Ebdon.

0:20:170:20:18

Very good.

0:20:190:20:21

Yeah, 2002 champion, Peter Ebdon.

0:20:210:20:24

Thank you, Richard. Adam.

0:20:240:20:27

The pressure is on.

0:20:270:20:29

Yeah.

0:20:290:20:30

I think I'll go for Doug Mountjoy.

0:20:310:20:33

Doug Mountjoy, says Adam.

0:20:330:20:35

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

0:20:350:20:38

It's another correct answer, 4 is our highest score, 2 is our low.

0:20:400:20:44

Oh, it's another 2!

0:20:470:20:49

Very good indeed.

0:20:510:20:52

Yeah, reached the final in 1981, Doug Mountjoy.

0:20:540:20:56

He's one of those guys who only turned pro at 34.

0:20:560:20:59

Got in right when it became absolutely massive,

0:20:590:21:02

won lots of tournaments.

0:21:020:21:03

Very good. Thanks, Richard. We're halfway through the round.

0:21:030:21:05

Let's take a look at those scores.

0:21:050:21:07

Only two scores between the three pairs. 2, 2 and 4.

0:21:070:21:10

Adam and Mike, Richard and Allistair all paired on the two there.

0:21:100:21:14

Norma and Anna, there you are on a four.

0:21:140:21:16

Anna?

0:21:160:21:18

I'm hoping you know your snooker inside out

0:21:180:21:19

-because we need a nice, low score...

-Couldn't know less about snooker!

0:21:190:21:22

-..from you.

-OK, very best of luck with this next pass.

0:21:220:21:25

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

0:21:250:21:27

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:270:21:29

OK. So, Mike, remember,

0:21:330:21:34

we are looking for any World Snooker Championship quarterfinalist or

0:21:340:21:38

-beyond.

-Can't think of the last time I watched snooker on television,

0:21:380:21:40

it was a long time ago,

0:21:400:21:43

so I'm going to say Ray Reardon.

0:21:430:21:46

Ray Reardon, says Mike.

0:21:460:21:48

Here is your red line.

0:21:480:21:49

There it is, quite low.

0:21:510:21:53

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

0:21:530:21:55

It's right.

0:21:580:22:00

17 for Ray Reardon.

0:22:040:22:06

Takes you up to 19.

0:22:090:22:10

-The game is afoot.

-Yeah, six-time World Champion, Ray Reardon.

0:22:100:22:14

-Another Welshman.

-Thank you very much, Richard.

0:22:140:22:18

OK, someone has broken ranks now

0:22:180:22:20

from the low scores of the first pass,

0:22:200:22:22

Allistair, which takes a little bit of pressure off.

0:22:220:22:24

If you can score 16 or less, you are through to the next round,

0:22:240:22:28

-to the head-to-head.

-Don't think I'm going to get 16 with this answer,

0:22:280:22:31

but I'm going to go with Stephen Hendry.

0:22:310:22:33

Stephen Hendry, says Allistair.

0:22:330:22:35

Here is your red line.

0:22:350:22:38

Get below it, you're into the head-to-head.

0:22:380:22:41

How many people said Stephen Hendry?

0:22:410:22:43

30 for Stephen Hendry,

0:22:510:22:52

takes your total up to 32.

0:22:520:22:54

Yeah, won 70 matches in the World Championships in 27 consecutive

0:22:560:22:59

appearances and won it seven times,

0:22:590:23:01

seven-time World Champion, Stephen Hendry.

0:23:010:23:04

Now then, the door is open for you, Anna.

0:23:040:23:06

The door is open.

0:23:060:23:07

You are on 4.

0:23:070:23:09

If you can score 27 or less,

0:23:090:23:12

the head-to-head awaits.

0:23:120:23:15

The head-to-head doesn't await,

0:23:150:23:16

I've never seen a snooker match in my life.

0:23:160:23:19

Are we in making up someone's name territory?

0:23:190:23:21

I'm going to make up a name.

0:23:210:23:22

-This could be brilliant.

-That's how little I know!

0:23:220:23:24

You've got to picture, picture a snooker player.

0:23:240:23:27

-OK.

-Listen to the voice of the commentator,

0:23:270:23:29

what is the commentator saying?

0:23:290:23:31

He is saying...

0:23:310:23:33

Mark Henderson?

0:23:330:23:35

Mark Henderson, OK.

0:23:350:23:37

Mark Henderson.

0:23:370:23:39

There's your red line, Mark Henderson.

0:23:390:23:42

Addressing the table.

0:23:420:23:43

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

0:23:460:23:50

Is it right?

0:23:500:23:51

Oh. On this occasion, I'm afraid, an incorrect answer.

0:23:540:23:56

I'm afraid no Mark Henderson, that scores you 100 points,

0:23:560:23:59

takes your total up to 104.

0:23:590:24:01

Yeah, sorry about that. Mark Selby would have scored you 6,

0:24:010:24:03

Mark Williams would have scored you 3,

0:24:030:24:05

Marco Fu would have scored you 2 points.

0:24:050:24:07

Let's take a look at some pointless answers.

0:24:070:24:09

The Australian, Eddie Charlton.

0:24:100:24:12

Fred Davis, who reached the semifinals at 64 years old.

0:24:120:24:15

James Wattana from Thailand, used to call him the Thai-Phoon.

0:24:170:24:20

That was in the era of Hurricane Higgins and Whirlwind White.

0:24:200:24:23

Kirk Stevens, the Canadian, Matthew Stevens, another Welshman.

0:24:230:24:27

The brilliant Neal Foulds, does a lot of commentary these days,

0:24:270:24:29

very good at it as well.

0:24:290:24:31

And Neil Robertson, Stuart Bingham, very recent World Champion,

0:24:310:24:34

is a pointless answer.

0:24:340:24:36

The Maltese player Tony Drago.

0:24:360:24:37

You could have had Paul Hunter, you could have had Ricky Walden,

0:24:370:24:40

Joe Perry, Anthony Hamilton, Barry Hawkins, Stephen Maguire,

0:24:400:24:43

Silvino Francisco, lots of pointless answers out there.

0:24:430:24:45

Thank you very much indeed. So, we are at the end of our second round,

0:24:450:24:48

we have to say goodbye to a pair. And I'm so sorry, Anna and Norma,

0:24:480:24:52

our returning friends from the last show, we have to say goodbye to you.

0:24:520:24:56

This is the end of the pointless road for you,

0:24:560:24:58

but it's been great having you on.

0:24:580:25:00

Thank you so much for playing. Anna and Norma.

0:25:000:25:02

APPLAUSE

0:25:020:25:05

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

0:25:050:25:08

Congratulations, Mike and Adam,

0:25:130:25:15

Richard and Allistair, you are now one step closer to the final

0:25:150:25:18

and a chance to play for that jackpot, which, lest we forget,

0:25:180:25:22

stands at £4,000.

0:25:220:25:25

And the lovely news is,

0:25:280:25:29

because we're now in the head-to-head,

0:25:290:25:32

you can now confer before you give your answers.

0:25:320:25:34

First player to win two questions will be playing for that jackpot.

0:25:340:25:36

Best of luck to you all. Let's play the head-to-head.

0:25:360:25:39

Here comes your first question.

0:25:450:25:48

And it is all about...

0:25:480:25:50

Live music, very popular on both teams there.

0:25:520:25:55

Concert Venues is the first question. Richard?

0:25:550:25:57

Yeah, we're going to show you five pictures now of live music venues from around the world.

0:25:570:26:01

We're looking for where you would find these venues, please.

0:26:010:26:03

The cities you would find these venues.

0:26:030:26:05

OK, here are our five live music venues.

0:26:050:26:08

And we have got...

0:26:080:26:10

There we are, five live music venues.

0:26:410:26:45

Mike and Adam, you will go first.

0:26:450:26:47

-What do you reckon?

-Is A the Royal Opera House?

0:26:480:26:52

We'll have to go Royal Albert Hall, D, because I don't know that.

0:26:520:26:56

OK, Mike and Adam, what would you like to go for?

0:26:560:26:58

We're going to go for E as Cardiff.

0:26:580:27:01

E, Cardiff, says Mike and Adam.

0:27:010:27:04

Now then, Richard and Allistair.

0:27:040:27:06

Richard and Allistair, do you want to talk us through the board?

0:27:060:27:08

C is Sydney.

0:27:080:27:10

D, we think, is London.

0:27:100:27:13

You said A is Vienna?

0:27:130:27:16

OK, we've got A, Vienna.

0:27:160:27:18

A, Vienna.

0:27:180:27:19

So, we have E, Cardiff and A, Vienna.

0:27:190:27:22

Mike and Adam said Cardiff for E, let's see if that's right,

0:27:220:27:26

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

0:27:260:27:28

It most certainly is Cardiff.

0:27:310:27:33

And that's a good score, down it goes.

0:27:340:27:37

18, very well done indeed, Mike and Adam.

0:27:370:27:39

Richard and Allistair meanwhile have gone for A.

0:27:430:27:46

Not many visual clues beyond just the building itself there.

0:27:460:27:50

So, yes, you have said Vienna for that, let's see if Vienna is right,

0:27:500:27:54

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

0:27:540:27:56

Not Vienna.

0:27:590:28:01

Not Vienna, which means well done, Mike and Adam,

0:28:010:28:03

after the first question, you are up 1-0.

0:28:030:28:06

Yeah, you had to have a guess at it after Cardiff,

0:28:060:28:08

that's a very good answer. It's actually Paris.

0:28:080:28:11

Would have scored you 6 points.

0:28:110:28:13

B, it's in Germany.

0:28:130:28:15

It's the Berlin Philharmonie.

0:28:150:28:18

It was a pointless answer as well, so very well done if you said that.

0:28:180:28:20

That is where the Berlin Philharmonic play?

0:28:200:28:22

-Yeah.

-What about that?

0:28:220:28:23

C is, of course, Sydney.

0:28:230:28:27

Scores 88 points.

0:28:270:28:29

Now, D, it is the Royal Albert Hall.

0:28:310:28:34

It's in London, what do you think that scored?

0:28:340:28:36

You would hope in the 80s, at least.

0:28:360:28:38

-40 points for that.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:28:380:28:40

OK, here comes your second question.

0:28:400:28:42

Richard and Allistair, you get to answer it first

0:28:420:28:44

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

0:28:440:28:46

Our second question is all about...

0:28:460:28:48

Yep. Pirates. Richard?

0:28:510:28:53

Five clues now to facts about pirates.

0:28:530:28:55

Can you give us the best answer, please?

0:28:550:28:58

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

0:28:580:29:01

We have got...

0:29:010:29:02

I'll read those all one last time.

0:29:250:29:27

There we are, Richard and Allistair will go first.

0:29:480:29:50

Maybe the top one?

0:29:500:29:53

OK, I don't know the second one. The last one, I might know.

0:29:530:29:58

Going to go for the second one and say Captain Pugwash.

0:29:580:30:01

Captain Pugwash, say Richard and Allistair.

0:30:010:30:04

Now then, Mike and Adam,

0:30:040:30:06

the board is yours, talk us through it.

0:30:060:30:08

That's the one we would have gone for.

0:30:080:30:10

The first one is Johnny Depp, obviously.

0:30:100:30:13

I don't know the Italian name for Red Beard.

0:30:130:30:17

I know Italian's rosso, but...

0:30:170:30:19

Leader of the pirates is Long John Silver.

0:30:190:30:22

Pirate radio station, I think, is Caroline.

0:30:220:30:26

OK, we'll go Radio Caroline.

0:30:260:30:27

Radio Caroline. So, we have Captain Pugwash, we have Radio Caroline.

0:30:270:30:30

Now, Richard and Allistair said Captain Pugwash for the John Ryan

0:30:300:30:34

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

0:30:340:30:36

It is Captain Pugwash.

0:30:380:30:40

And that scores you 30.

0:30:430:30:44

Meanwhile, Mike and Adam have gone for Radio Caroline,

0:30:480:30:51

the pirate radio station.

0:30:510:30:53

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

0:30:530:30:56

It is right.

0:30:580:30:59

49 is what you scored there.

0:31:020:31:04

Very well done, Richard and Allistair, back in the game.

0:31:040:31:06

After two questions, it's 1-1.

0:31:060:31:08

Yeah, and you know what? You knew the leader of the pirates and that

0:31:080:31:11

would have seen you into the final, Long John Silver.

0:31:110:31:13

-It's a much lower scorer than you'd think.

-Really?

0:31:130:31:15

Yeah, it would have scored you 21 points.

0:31:150:31:19

Wow.

0:31:190:31:20

The US actor, Johnny Depp, that's the biggest score up there.

0:31:200:31:24

Scored 66.

0:31:240:31:26

And I wasn't familiar with the expression byname.

0:31:260:31:30

It's Barbarossa.

0:31:300:31:31

-Barbarossa, it's a name we all know, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:31:310:31:34

Tough to get from that clue, 7 points for that.

0:31:340:31:37

Very well done if you said that at home.

0:31:370:31:38

There we are, OK. So, it all comes down to a decider.

0:31:380:31:41

Best of luck to both players. Our third question today is all about...

0:31:410:31:45

-Richard?

-That's nice, isn't it?

-Mm.

0:31:470:31:50

We're going to give you five clues now to parts of our digestive system

0:31:500:31:53

and give you the answers with alternate letters removed.

0:31:530:31:55

Can you fill in those gaps, please?

0:31:550:31:57

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

0:31:570:32:00

So, we have...

0:32:280:32:29

-Mike and Adam, you'll go first.

-I think three or four.

0:32:420:32:45

-Can you tell me what they are?

-I think three is the one to go for.

0:32:450:32:47

Go for it.

0:32:470:32:49

OK, Mike and Adam?

0:32:490:32:50

We will go for the third one, which is the ileum.

0:32:500:32:55

The ileum.

0:32:550:32:56

So then, Richard and Allistair, we come to you.

0:32:580:33:01

Talk us through the board.

0:33:010:33:03

We've got pancreas, gall bladder,

0:33:030:33:04

duodenum and oesophagus.

0:33:040:33:08

Duodenum. Yeah, shall we do that?

0:33:080:33:11

Yeah, fourth one. Duodenum.

0:33:110:33:14

So, we have ileum and we have duodenum.

0:33:140:33:17

So, Mike and Adam went for ileum, let's see if that's right.

0:33:170:33:19

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

0:33:190:33:21

It's right.

0:33:240:33:25

31 for ileum.

0:33:290:33:30

Meanwhile, Richard and Allistair have gone for duodenum.

0:33:320:33:36

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

0:33:360:33:39

It's right.

0:33:410:33:42

49 for duodenum.

0:33:440:33:46

Which means very well done indeed, Adam and Mike.

0:33:470:33:50

After three questions, you are through to the final 2-1.

0:33:500:33:54

Yeah, very well played, best two answers on the board there.

0:33:540:33:56

Let us fill in the rest of these, shall we?

0:33:560:33:59

Pancreas, of course,

0:33:590:34:00

produces those enzymes,

0:34:000:34:02

that would have scored 77.

0:34:020:34:04

The next one, much more famous,

0:34:040:34:06

even than the Sydney Opera House.

0:34:060:34:08

The gall bladder.

0:34:080:34:10

That would have scored you 93 points.

0:34:100:34:13

And the tube which moves food down to the stomach.

0:34:130:34:15

-The oesophagus.

-The oesophagus.

0:34:150:34:18

And that would have scored 66.

0:34:180:34:20

Thank you very much, Richard. So, the pair leaving us

0:34:200:34:22

at the end of the head-to-head, Richard and Allistair,

0:34:220:34:24

I'm afraid this is where we have to say goodbye to you.

0:34:240:34:27

It's been great to have you on the show.

0:34:270:34:28

But thanks so much, Richard and Allistair.

0:34:280:34:30

APPLAUSE

0:34:300:34:33

But for Mike and Adam, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:34:330:34:36

Congratulations, Mike and Adam.

0:34:410:34:42

You've seen off all the competition

0:34:420:34:44

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:34:440:34:46

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:34:520:34:55

At the end of today's show, the jackpot is standing at £4,000.

0:34:550:34:59

CHEERING

0:34:590:35:00

Well, well done is all I can say.

0:35:030:35:05

Fantastic, your first appearance on the show

0:35:050:35:08

and straight through to the final.

0:35:080:35:10

What do you want to see come up in this round?

0:35:100:35:12

Something with a film.

0:35:120:35:13

Something with a film theme of any kind.

0:35:130:35:15

OK, film.

0:35:150:35:16

Anything else, Adam? What are you going to be bringing to the party?

0:35:160:35:19

Maybe sort of sporting things like FA Cup finals, World Cups,

0:35:190:35:24

-something like that.

-We shall see.

0:35:240:35:25

-We shall see.

-Let's see, let's see what we serve up for you.

0:35:250:35:28

I have no idea, obviously,

0:35:280:35:29

but four things will appear on that screen behind me.

0:35:290:35:32

We've just got to hope one of them appeals to you in a small way.

0:35:320:35:35

Best of luck. Let's see what's today's selection looks like.

0:35:350:35:37

We have got...

0:35:370:35:38

What do you think?

0:35:440:35:45

I think that Characters In Stage Love Stories, no, Beach Boys, no.

0:35:450:35:49

Premier League Football Achievements,

0:35:490:35:52

I think that's too recent for me.

0:35:520:35:54

I think we've got to go New York and hope there's a film category.

0:35:540:35:58

New York, please.

0:35:580:35:59

OK, New York. You're hoping for a film angle.

0:35:590:36:02

-New York, Richard.

-OK, very, very best of luck.

0:36:020:36:05

We are looking for any of the following three, please.

0:36:050:36:07

We're looking for anybody who's appeared in two or more episodes of

0:36:070:36:11

Friends. Any actor who has appeared in two or more episodes of Friends.

0:36:110:36:14

Some people, utter dream category that, I know.

0:36:140:36:17

We are looking for any mayors of New York City since 1900

0:36:170:36:21

up to 2016.

0:36:210:36:22

Or we are looking for any players of the two Major League football teams,

0:36:220:36:25

New York City or New York Red Bulls

0:36:250:36:27

in 2016, please. So...

0:36:270:36:29

Now, as always, you've got up to

0:36:340:36:36

one minute to come up with three answers.

0:36:360:36:38

All you need for that jackpot win

0:36:380:36:40

is for just one of those answers

0:36:400:36:42

to be pointless. Are you ready?

0:36:420:36:44

-Yes.

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

0:36:440:36:47

There they are, your time starts now.

0:36:470:36:48

I have literally never seen a single episode of Friends, unfortunately.

0:36:480:36:51

Mayor Giuliani is the only one that I know there and no way is that...

0:36:510:36:55

Is Ed Koch?

0:36:550:36:56

I'm sure it's Koch.

0:36:560:36:59

Ed Koch. Ran in the '70s for mayor.

0:36:590:37:00

-Go with that.

-Do you know any of the...?

0:37:000:37:03

The Red Bulls are going to be...

0:37:030:37:04

Frank Lampard, I think, plays for the Red Bulls, but again,

0:37:040:37:08

there's no way that's going to be pointless.

0:37:080:37:10

There is no way that Giuliani is going to be pointless.

0:37:100:37:13

Friends, Bruce Willis was in Friends.

0:37:130:37:15

And that's...

0:37:150:37:17

Who else?

0:37:170:37:19

Tom Selleck was in Friends, but they've all been in it too much.

0:37:190:37:23

I can't think of anyone,

0:37:230:37:24

I want someone who's only been in it three times, sort of thing.

0:37:240:37:28

I'd go for Selleck and Willis.

0:37:280:37:30

It ain't going to be good enough.

0:37:300:37:31

I'm just trying to think of somebody else that's been in Friends

0:37:320:37:36

but only in a couple of episodes.

0:37:360:37:38

-Ten seconds left.

-Nobody.

0:37:380:37:41

I haven't seen an episode.

0:37:410:37:42

Can't think of...

0:37:470:37:49

OK, that is your time up. I now need your three answers.

0:37:490:37:52

If you could say what category you're answering in, that'd be great.

0:37:520:37:55

Right, Ed Koch for Mayor of New York.

0:37:550:37:58

-OK.

-And then go Bruce Willis.

0:37:580:38:00

-Bruce Willis.

-And Tom Selleck.

0:38:000:38:02

And Tom Selleck.

0:38:020:38:03

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

0:38:030:38:06

-Koch.

-Ed Koch.

0:38:060:38:07

Least likely to be pointless?

0:38:070:38:09

-Bruce Willis.

-Bruce Willis. Tom Selleck goes in the middle.

0:38:090:38:11

OK, let's pop those answers are on the board in that order then,

0:38:110:38:14

and here we are.

0:38:140:38:16

We have got Bruce Willis, Tom Selleck and Ed Koch.

0:38:160:38:20

Well, very, very best of luck.

0:38:200:38:22

If one of these were to win that jackpot for you, four grand,

0:38:220:38:26

what would you like to do with that?

0:38:260:38:28

-Mike, you first.

-Well,

0:38:280:38:29

my lovely other half, Ali,

0:38:290:38:31

has already bagsed it towards her new car.

0:38:310:38:33

-Hooray, you get a nice ride in that.

-I would indeed.

-Adam, how about you?

0:38:330:38:36

Me and my wife are both 50 this year

0:38:360:38:39

and we are going to go on a holiday to America.

0:38:390:38:42

Go up the West Coast.

0:38:420:38:44

-Very good.

-So, I will be putting it towards that.

0:38:440:38:46

Well, congratulations and happy birthday...

0:38:460:38:48

-Thank you very much.

-..when it comes to you both!

0:38:480:38:50

OK, well, let's find out how we do with these answers.

0:38:500:38:53

Bruce Willis, in this case, we were

0:38:530:38:55

looking for any actor who's appeared in two or more episodes of friends.

0:38:550:38:58

If this is pointless, it will win you £4,000.

0:38:580:39:00

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

0:39:000:39:02

It's right.

0:39:060:39:07

Now, all it has to be is pointless,

0:39:080:39:10

and then you will win £4,000.

0:39:100:39:12

Bruce Willis takes us down through the 30s,

0:39:120:39:14

down through the 20s, into the teens.

0:39:140:39:16

Into single figures, just.

0:39:160:39:18

9 for Bruce Willis.

0:39:180:39:20

Good answer! Sadly though, not a pointless answer.

0:39:210:39:25

So, we move swiftly to your next answer, which is Tom Selleck.

0:39:250:39:28

Again, we are looking for actors

0:39:280:39:29

who appeared in Friends two or more times.

0:39:290:39:32

If this is pointless, it wins you £4,000.

0:39:320:39:34

How many people said Tom Selleck?

0:39:340:39:36

Again, it's right. Bruce Willis,

0:39:380:39:40

your first answer, took us all the way down to 9.

0:39:400:39:43

Tom Selleck now takes us down through the 30s.

0:39:430:39:46

Into the 20s, into the teens.

0:39:460:39:49

Oh, not quite into single figures. We've gone to 10.

0:39:490:39:51

-So, not a pointless answer.

-Kind of knew that was going to happen.

0:39:550:39:58

We move onto your third and final answer.

0:39:580:40:00

We are now looking for mayors of New York.

0:40:000:40:03

You've gone for Ed Koch.

0:40:030:40:04

This was the answer you thought

0:40:040:40:06

was your best shot at a pointless answer.

0:40:060:40:08

If it is pointless, it will win you £4,000.

0:40:080:40:10

How many people said Ed Koch?

0:40:100:40:12

-It's right.

-It's right!

0:40:150:40:16

Ed Koch is right, you found that from somewhere

0:40:160:40:19

at the back of your mind there, Mike.

0:40:190:40:21

Ed Koch takes us down through the teens.

0:40:210:40:24

We're into single figures, down it goes, down it goes,

0:40:240:40:26

still going to go.

0:40:260:40:27

GROANS

0:40:270:40:29

Oh.

0:40:340:40:35

Oh, that's got to smart a bit, hasn't it?

0:40:380:40:41

Oh! Oh, one person remembered Ed Koch.

0:40:410:40:44

Oh, I'm so sorry. You've done so well.

0:40:440:40:47

Unfortunately though, you just

0:40:470:40:49

didn't find that irritating pointless answer

0:40:490:40:51

that we were looking for.

0:40:510:40:52

So, I'm afraid you don't win today's jackpot of £4,000.

0:40:520:40:55

That will roll over the next show.

0:40:550:40:56

But you have been magnificent right the way across the show.

0:40:560:40:59

Thank you so much for coming.

0:40:590:41:00

You get to take a Pointless trophy home each.

0:41:000:41:02

So, very, very well done, Mike and Adam.

0:41:020:41:04

Gents, that's a very, very unlucky. I said at the start of the show,

0:41:090:41:12

we've had two shows in a row where in the jackpot round

0:41:120:41:14

we scored 2 points and you've scored 1 point.

0:41:140:41:16

You bettered it but not quite enough.

0:41:160:41:18

Let's take a look at the pointless answers. We'll start with Friends.

0:41:180:41:21

I'll tell you some of the 1-pointers.

0:41:210:41:23

Lots of fans of Friends would have gone for some low...

0:41:230:41:25

2 points for Elliott Gould and Helen Baxendale.

0:41:250:41:28

1 point for Reese Witherspoon,

0:41:280:41:29

James Michael Tyler who plays Gunther.

0:41:290:41:31

Jennifer Saunders, Kathleen Turner, Sean Penn,

0:41:310:41:33

Christina Applegate and Elle Macpherson.

0:41:330:41:35

And these are some of your pointless answers.

0:41:350:41:37

Alec Baldwin, pointless answer.

0:41:400:41:42

Gary Oldman, Hank Azaria, who does lots of the voices on The Simpsons.

0:41:420:41:45

Teri Garr, you also could have had Dermot Mulroney,

0:41:450:41:48

you could have had Giovanni Ribisi, who plays Frank, Phoebe's brother.

0:41:480:41:51

You could have had a Morgan Fairchild, Olivia Williams,

0:41:510:41:53

Paul Rudd, who plays Mike, was also a pointless answer.

0:41:530:41:56

-Really?

-Well done if you said any of those.

0:41:560:41:58

Let's take a look now at mayors of New York City.

0:41:580:42:00

This is a tough one.

0:42:000:42:01

David Dinkins, some people at home might have got,

0:42:030:42:06

probably the most famous name on the list.

0:42:060:42:08

The only ones that scored points at all were, alongside Ed Koch,

0:42:100:42:13

Rudy Giuliani would have scored you 16,

0:42:130:42:14

Michael Bloomberg would have scored you 6

0:42:140:42:16

and 1 point for Bill de Blasio and Fiorello La Guardia.

0:42:160:42:19

They'd have scored 1 point. Every other mayor was a pointless answer.

0:42:190:42:22

These New York City and New York Red Bulls players,

0:42:220:42:25

there will be a name you know up here,

0:42:250:42:27

which is Shaun Wright-Phillips.

0:42:270:42:28

I know some people at home would have said that,

0:42:280:42:30

I would have gone for Bradley Wright Phillips,

0:42:300:42:32

his brother, who scored 1 point.

0:42:320:42:33

So, I would have done the same as you.

0:42:330:42:35

The only players who scored points at all were Frank Lampard,

0:42:370:42:39

who you mentioned, David Villa, Bradley Wright-Phillips,

0:42:390:42:42

Andrea Pirlo and Lloyd Sam. Everyone else a pointless answer.

0:42:420:42:44

Very well done if you got one at home.

0:42:440:42:46

Thanks very much indeed, Richard. Well, Mike and Adam,

0:42:460:42:49

very sadly, didn't win our jackpot today

0:42:490:42:51

which means it rolls over onto the next show,

0:42:510:42:53

when we will be playing for £5,000.

0:42:530:42:55

Join us then to see if someone can win it.

0:42:570:43:00

-Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

-Goodbye.

0:43:000:43:02

And it's goodbye from me. Goodbye.
