0:00:180:00:21

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

0:00:210:00:24

and welcome to Pointless, the show that puts obscure knowledge to the test.

0:00:240:00:27

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:270:00:29

And, couple number one.

0:00:330:00:35

Hello, I'm Arthur, this is my fiancee,

0:00:350:00:37

Steph, and we have come from Loughborough.

0:00:370:00:39

Couple number two.

0:00:390:00:41

Hi, I'm Jane, I'm from Tadworth in Surrey and this is my best

0:00:410:00:44

-friend, Sue. She's from Berkshire.

-Couple number three.

0:00:440:00:47

Hi, I'm Tom, this is my housemate, Sam, and we're from Exeter.

0:00:470:00:50

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:500:00:52

Hi, I'm Angela, this is my friend, Nick.

0:00:520:00:54

I'm from south-west London and Nick is from High Wycombe.

0:00:540:00:57

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:570:00:59

Thanks very much to all of you, a warm welcome to the show.

0:01:010:01:03

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

0:01:030:01:06

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

0:01:060:01:09

The most important number in our collective equation,

0:01:090:01:11

where X is constant and Y is an unfeasibly tall man in glasses.

0:01:110:01:15

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

0:01:150:01:18

Hiya! Hi, everybody.

0:01:180:01:20

-Good afternoon to you.

-Good afternoon.

-How are you?

-I'm very well.

-Excellent.

0:01:210:01:25

We only have one returning pair from last time but they were

0:01:250:01:27

-very good.

-They were.

-Tom and Sam, weren't they? They're very clever, everybody.

0:01:270:01:32

I'm sorry to break that to you. You may be clever as well,

0:01:320:01:34

we don't know that yet, but they definitely are.

0:01:340:01:37

It's annoying, isn't it? I would prefer to come on a show where there's, you know,

0:01:370:01:40

-there's only one returning pair and they were terrible.

-Yeah.

0:01:400:01:43

But Tom and Sam, head-to-head, 2-1 in the... You know it was good, it was a good show, wasn't it?

0:01:430:01:47

-Mm.

-And they know about everything.

0:01:470:01:49

One of the categories was "Everything" in the last round.

0:01:490:01:51

And they both got pointless answers, it was amazing.

0:01:510:01:54

It was "name anything in the world" and both of them,

0:01:540:01:56

-so, there was only two pointless answers.

-Yeah!

0:01:560:01:59

It was Chico and Oswestry.

0:01:590:02:01

Those were the only two pointless answers. And they got both of them.

0:02:010:02:04

No offence to anyone in Oswestry, especially if Chico's visiting.

0:02:040:02:07

-Wow, that would be a strange eclipse, wouldn't it? Chico.

-Oh, it'd be weird.

0:02:070:02:12

-Have you ever been to Oswestry?

-Not yet.

0:02:120:02:13

-I haven't either. It's a nice name, though, isn't it?

-It is.

0:02:130:02:16

That's why I plucked it out of thin air.

0:02:160:02:18

It always makes me think of owls. Why should it?

0:02:180:02:20

-Well, because of the "O" and the "W", I guess.

-I guess it must be.

0:02:200:02:23

-But, yeah, I bet it has no connection to the owl.

-I bet there are owls THERE.

0:02:230:02:26

I do hope so.

0:02:260:02:28

There can't be a town without an owl in the whole of the UK.

0:02:280:02:31

-There's a folk song there, isn't there?

-A town without an owl.

0:02:310:02:34

# She came from a town without an owl... #

0:02:340:02:37

-She didn't give a hoot.

-Ha-ha, ha-ha!

0:02:370:02:39

GROANING There we are!

0:02:390:02:42

Now then, Dave and Jan didn't win the jackpot last time,

0:02:420:02:46

they weren't as clever as Tom and Sam...

0:02:460:02:48

LAUGHTER ..which means we add another £1,000, so today's jackpot

0:02:480:02:51

starts off at £2,000. There we are.

0:02:510:02:55

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

0:02:570:02:59

Now, remember this, the pair with the highest score at the end

0:03:030:03:06

of each round will be eliminated.

0:03:060:03:08

So, you know what you have to do to make sure you're not that pair.

0:03:080:03:11

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

0:03:110:03:15

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

0:03:170:03:21

THEY WHISPER

0:03:210:03:22

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

0:03:220:03:26

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

0:03:280:03:30

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many...

0:03:300:03:34

..US states containing the letters U or S.

0:03:370:03:40

Yeah, simply looking for any of the 50 US states

0:03:400:03:42

that have the letters U or S anywhere in the names, please.

0:03:420:03:45

Thank you very much indeed. Steph, a warm welcome, from Loughborough?

0:03:450:03:50

-Yes.

-What keeps you busy in Loughborough, Steph?

0:03:500:03:52

Erm, work, mostly.

0:03:520:03:54

-Nice work?

-Yeah, nice work, yeah, I actually work

0:03:540:03:56

in Nottingham, and we just live in Loughborough.

0:03:560:03:59

What work do you do in Nottingham?

0:03:590:04:01

-So, I project manage e-learning courses.

-That's an online thing?

0:04:010:04:04

Yeah, so, it's normally for big companies that do it internally for

0:04:040:04:09

-their employees...

-Right.

-..so I would project manage the creation of those courses.

0:04:090:04:14

I see. And do you ever go out and sort of road test it, with...

0:04:140:04:17

-Take it round the companies, see how they do?

-No, we normally just get

0:04:170:04:20

feedback from the company that says, "Can you fix this, please?"

0:04:200:04:23

You just stay up in Nottingham, quite right.

0:04:230:04:25

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

0:04:250:04:28

a US state with a U or an S in its name.

0:04:280:04:30

-I think I'll go for Nebraska, please.

-Nebraska, says Steph.

0:04:300:04:34

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

0:04:340:04:37

It's right.

0:04:400:04:42

9! Well done.

0:04:470:04:49

I think that's a very good start to the round, Steph.

0:04:490:04:52

-Lovely single-digit score.

-Well played, Steph, they call it the Cornhusker State or the Beef State.

0:04:520:04:57

The Owl State. LAUGHTER

0:04:570:05:00

-There must be one.

-I bet there is!

-Again, I bet there's no states without owls.

0:05:000:05:04

-Owls get everywhere, don't they?

-Couldn't come from a state without an owl.

0:05:040:05:08

No, of course you couldn't, it'd be crazy.

0:05:080:05:10

-Now, Sue, welcome to Pointless. Great to have you here.

-Thank you.

0:05:100:05:13

What keeps you busy, Sue?

0:05:130:05:15

Well, technically, I'm retired, but I also work part-time as

0:05:150:05:20

a child development psychologist.

0:05:200:05:23

So, how long have you been doing that?

0:05:230:05:25

Was that something you were doing before you retired as well?

0:05:250:05:28

-No, no, no, since I retired.

-So, you've taken that up in retirement?

0:05:280:05:31

-That sounds like taking on a whole new job?

-Well, it is, actually.

0:05:310:05:35

-I've been doing it for 11 years.

-Goodness.

0:05:350:05:37

-That's the age of my eldest grandchild.

-Lovely.

0:05:370:05:42

And you must enjoy that, it must be very fulfilling.

0:05:420:05:45

Yes, I'm kept very busy by all seven of my grandchildren and

0:05:450:05:48

that's what I mean when I'm a child psychologist.

0:05:480:05:52

LAUGHTER Oh, I see! I... I get you, I walked right into that.

0:05:520:05:57

LAUGHTER

0:05:570:05:59

-I thought you were very impressed.

-I was!

0:05:590:06:02

But you're right, you put it in exactly the right context.

0:06:020:06:04

And while we're there, I must say hello to all of them, please.

0:06:040:06:08

-Right, come on, your time is running now. Let's see, can you remember them all?

-OK, OK...

0:06:080:06:12

-Yes, hello, Max...

-Max.

-..Isaac...

-Isaac.

-..Jade...

-Jade.

-..Chloe...

-Chloe.

0:06:120:06:16

-..Oscar...

-Oscar.

-..Charlie... ..Teddy...

-Foxtrot.

0:06:160:06:20

Sorry, Teddy. LAUGHTER

0:06:200:06:22

-Love you lots!

-Ooh, I caught that.

-Aw, nice.

0:06:220:06:26

All right, you can have it, you can have it. There we are.

0:06:260:06:29

-Now, Sue, what about a US state with a U or an S in it ?

-Kentucky.

0:06:290:06:33

Kentucky, says Sue. Let's see how many of our 100 people said Kentucky.

0:06:340:06:38

It's right.

0:06:410:06:43

Look at that, 11! For Kentucky. Good grouping.

0:06:480:06:51

-Yeah, known for the Kentucky owl.

-LAUGHTER

0:06:530:06:57

Which is a famous... It's a delicacy.

0:06:570:07:00

-There's a secret recipe for that, isn't there?

-Yeah, there is.

0:07:000:07:03

-KFO is the name of the company.

-LAUGHTER

0:07:030:07:05

-There we are. Sam, welcome back to Pointless.

-Thank you.

0:07:070:07:11

We discovered you were in your last year at Exeter. Cos you were

0:07:110:07:14

-doing international relations.

-Yes.

0:07:140:07:17

-And wanted to go into the art world.

-Yes.

0:07:170:07:19

Um, from a really young age, I've been going to art...galleries

0:07:190:07:25

and grown up around artists and things like that.

0:07:250:07:29

See, that's nice. And do you have a favourite era of art?

0:07:290:07:31

-A type of art?

-Probably 1900 to...1950.

0:07:310:07:36

-British, European?

-Mainly European, yeah.

0:07:360:07:40

European. And, I mean, what do you now call that?

0:07:410:07:44

Because there was a time presumably that was called modern art.

0:07:440:07:46

Well, it is now called...modern art now, which makes no sense.

0:07:460:07:49

-It makes no sense at all, someone's going to have to... Maybe you're the person, Sam.

-Absolutely.

0:07:490:07:53

-You can devise a new name for that era.

-Absolutely!

0:07:530:07:56

-Erm, very good. Gosh, well, best of luck with that.

-Thank you.

0:07:560:07:58

-That's going to be very exciting. Sam, what would you like to go for?

-I'm going to go for...New Hampshire.

0:07:580:08:03

New Hampshire, says Sam, Let's see how many of our 100 people went for New Hampshire.

0:08:030:08:07

Oh, look at that, 7!

0:08:160:08:18

Sam and Tom, once again, demonstrating their excellence.

0:08:200:08:22

Another very good answer, very well done, yeah, New Hampshire,

0:08:220:08:25

most famous for the New Hampshire owl.

0:08:250:08:28

LAUGHTER

0:08:280:08:30

-It's very small, isn't it, the New Hampshire owl?

-It's a tiny owl.

0:08:300:08:33

-It's like a newer version of... Have you ever been to Hampshire?

-Mm.

0:08:330:08:36

-You know the owls there?

-Mm.

-But, yeah,

0:08:360:08:38

slightly smaller and the screen is slightly better definition.

0:08:380:08:41

Do you know, some people say the New Hampshire owl is in fact just a fly.

0:08:410:08:45

No, it's very much, if you look at it through binoculars,

0:08:450:08:47

it's a fully fledged owl.

0:08:470:08:49

There we go, thank you very much indeed.

0:08:490:08:52

-Angela, welcome to Pointless.

-Hi.

-Great to have you here.

0:08:520:08:54

-What do you do, Angela?

-OK, I work as Digital Communications Manager within the NHS.

0:08:540:08:59

Right, where are you based to do that?

0:08:590:09:01

I'm actually based at Northwick Park Hospital in Harrow,

0:09:010:09:03

-which looks after north-west London.

-I see.

0:09:030:09:06

But presumably, being digital, you're in touch with everywhere.

0:09:060:09:09

-I am out there in the ether, yeah, I'm everywhere.

-You are.

0:09:090:09:12

-What do you do in your spare time, your downtime from the digital world?

-In my downtime,

0:09:120:09:15

I love reading and I love to write as well. I have been

0:09:150:09:19

a writer in the past, I've written a couple of teenage novels.

0:09:190:09:22

-Do you know, I honestly thought you said "breeding" there.

-Me too.

0:09:220:09:25

-Breeding?! I've done that once!

-I was just going to say an animal, or...

0:09:250:09:28

-"I love breeding."

-That's what I heard as well.

0:09:280:09:32

I don't know if it says more about us or you. But that is what I heard.

0:09:320:09:36

All right, now, Angela, we've had an interesting array of scores,

0:09:360:09:39

all odd numbers, going up in twos. What would you like to go for?

0:09:390:09:43

I'm going to go for the silent S of Illinois.

0:09:430:09:46

Illinois - see, I like that as a tactic.

0:09:470:09:50

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

0:09:500:09:52

It's right. Will it be another odd number? Will it go down to 5?

0:09:560:10:00

-11!

-Not bad.

0:10:020:10:04

11. Another odd number. Illinois.

0:10:040:10:07

I like the thinking though, the silent S, it's very smart, yeah.

0:10:070:10:11

-The Prairie State, Illinois.

-Thank you very much. Well, we're

0:10:110:10:14

halfway through the round, let's take a look at those scores.

0:10:140:10:16

7 from Sam was the best score of the pass.

0:10:160:10:18

Sam and Tom once again at the top of the table,

0:10:180:10:20

then we travel up to 9, where we find Steph and Arthur,

0:10:200:10:23

then up to 11, where we have a lovely large gathering there.

0:10:230:10:26

We've got Angela and Nick and Sue and Jane.

0:10:260:10:29

At the moment, you are the joint high-scorers.

0:10:290:10:31

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

0:10:310:10:33

Can the second players please step up to the podium.

0:10:330:10:36

-OK, so, Nick.

-Hello.

-Welcome to Pointless. What do you do, Nick?

0:10:380:10:42

Like Angela, I work in the NHS.

0:10:420:10:44

I literally started my job yesterday...

0:10:440:10:47

Oh, first day, you said "Oh, sorry, I won't be in tomorrow"?

0:10:470:10:50

It is a day off, I'm not sick!

0:10:500:10:52

OK, that's good. What department are you in?

0:10:520:10:56

I do communications, so, engagement, marketing,

0:10:560:11:00

dealing with and promoting campaigns, that kind of thing.

0:11:000:11:02

I see. And based on your first day at the office,

0:11:020:11:04

-did they seem like a nice bunch?

-It was amazing.

-Oh, that's good.

0:11:040:11:07

Really, really lovely people...if they're watching.

0:11:070:11:10

If I'm still there.

0:11:100:11:11

OK, this will be edited out - what are they really like, Nick? Really?

0:11:110:11:14

-They were Pointless fans.

-Oh, lovely people!

0:11:140:11:17

Oh, that's...our kind of people, absolutely.

0:11:170:11:20

Now, then, Nick, you're on 11, you're joint high-scorers.

0:11:200:11:23

-What would you like to go for?

-I'd like to choose South Dakota.

0:11:230:11:26

South Dakota, says Nick. No red line because you are joint

0:11:260:11:30

high-scorers, let's see how many of our 100 people said South Dakota.

0:11:300:11:33

22 for South Dakota. Interesting.

0:11:410:11:46

Taking your total up to 33.

0:11:460:11:48

Well, it does begin with an S and it's got a U in it as well.

0:11:480:11:50

Thank you very much indeed.

0:11:500:11:52

-Tom, welcome back.

-Hello.

-Remind us what you do.

0:11:540:11:56

I'm a student at Exeter University as well. With Sam.

0:11:560:11:59

But we discovered last time you're taking

0:11:590:12:01

-a year off to go off to Australia.

-Indeed, yes. To get a bit of sun.

0:12:010:12:05

So when are you going to leave? After our summer, presumably?

0:12:050:12:07

After our summer, yeah. And then be there for the Australian summer.

0:12:070:12:10

So just chase... Oh, it's going to be fantastic.

0:12:100:12:13

And have you worked out what you're going to do there?

0:12:130:12:15

I'll be playing cricket for the local club and then probably

0:12:150:12:19

-do a bit of part-time work. Mum's probably watching, so...

-I was going to say...

0:12:190:12:22

People seem to go round door-to-door selling books, that's something

0:12:220:12:25

that I've never come across in any other country apart from Australia.

0:12:250:12:28

-Interesting. Maybe that's my calling.

-That will be your calling.

0:12:280:12:31

Anyway, now, Tom, there you are, you're on 7,

0:12:310:12:33

the high-scorers on 33 are Andrew and Nick behind you.

0:12:330:12:36

25 or less keeps you in, but I think if you're going to look

0:12:360:12:39

Sam in the eye, you're going to have to either equal or better his score.

0:12:390:12:43

I think I'm going to go for Rhode Island.

0:12:430:12:46

Rhode Island, says Tom. Here is your red line.

0:12:460:12:48

If you can get below that red line with Rhode Island,

0:12:480:12:51

you're through to the next round. How many people said it?

0:12:510:12:54

It's right.

0:12:560:12:57

You're into Round Two.

0:13:010:13:03

3, look at that, Tom!

0:13:030:13:05

Very well done indeed.

0:13:050:13:07

Taking your total up to 10 there.

0:13:070:13:10

Very well played, Tom, yes, nicknamed the Ocean State,

0:13:100:13:13

it's very well-known for its sea owls.

0:13:130:13:15

LAUGHTER

0:13:150:13:16

Thank you very much, Richard. Jane. Welcome to Pointless.

0:13:160:13:20

Great to have you here, what you do, Jane?

0:13:200:13:23

Well, I'm a volunteer at my local charity, which is the

0:13:230:13:26

-Children's Trust in Tadworth.

-In Tadworth.

0:13:260:13:29

And how often do you volunteer there?

0:13:290:13:30

A couple of mornings a week,

0:13:300:13:32

I work in the charity shop in the village.

0:13:320:13:35

That's nice, and what are your interests, Jane?

0:13:350:13:38

Well, I love reading, I love entertaining - my husband and I

0:13:380:13:42

love to have all our friends round the table with nice food and wine.

0:13:420:13:46

Very nice, yes, a good dinner that goes on into the night. Fantastic.

0:13:460:13:51

Now, Jane, you're on 11,

0:13:510:13:52

our high-scorers on 33 are Nick and Angela, so 21 or less.

0:13:520:13:56

I'm going to say Minnesota.

0:13:560:14:00

Minnesota, says Jane. Here is your red line.

0:14:000:14:03

Get below that, you're through to the next round,

0:14:030:14:06

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

0:14:060:14:09

You've done it. 11. There we are.

0:14:160:14:19

Great grouping, you and Sue, absolutely alike on your scores.

0:14:190:14:22

22 is your total.

0:14:220:14:24

The Land Of 10,000 Lakes and the birthplace of

0:14:240:14:26

Bob Dylan, Judy Garland and F Scott Fitzgerald.

0:14:260:14:30

-Beautifully said.

-Thank you.

-There we are.

0:14:300:14:33

Arthur, welcome to Pointless.

0:14:330:14:34

Great to have you here from Loughborough. And what do you do?

0:14:340:14:37

I am an export manager for the great company that is Rolls-Royce.

0:14:370:14:40

That's exciting. So mainly selling aeroplane parts?

0:14:400:14:44

It's the engines, yes. As opposed to the cars. Separate company.

0:14:440:14:47

Well, that's exciting, and what are your interests, Arthur,

0:14:470:14:50

-aside from work?

-It's a bit of a bizarre mixture.

0:14:500:14:53

I enjoy sport, both playing and watching it, and I also enjoy

0:14:530:14:56

sampling and drinking wine - but not at the same time!

0:14:560:14:59

Why not?! Ah!

0:14:590:15:01

-That's the kind of football

-I

-love.

-Different kind of sport, I suppose.

0:15:010:15:05

Very good indeed.

0:15:050:15:06

Now, 9 is your score,

0:15:060:15:08

lovely low score from Steph in the first pass.

0:15:080:15:10

The high score is still 33 at the far end there.

0:15:100:15:13

So, 23 or less gets you through.

0:15:130:15:16

I've been bouncing around that enormous country and I think

0:15:160:15:20

I'm going to settle on West Virginia.

0:15:200:15:23

West Virginia, says Arthur. Here is your red line.

0:15:230:15:26

If you get below that with West Virginia, you're into Round Two.

0:15:260:15:29

How many people said it?

0:15:290:15:31

It's right.

0:15:340:15:36

You've done it. Very well done indeed. Look at that.

0:15:390:15:42

Down to 3.

0:15:420:15:44

Equalling Tom's excellent score, taking your total up to 12.

0:15:440:15:46

-Very well done on podium one.

-Terrific work all round, actually. There's no pointless answers at all.

0:15:460:15:51

The best possible answers you can give - and there's only two

0:15:510:15:53

of them - would have scored you 3 points

0:15:530:15:55

so Arthur and Tom got the best answers you could have given,

0:15:550:15:57

very well played, with Rhode Island and West Virginia.

0:15:570:16:00

4 points for Connecticut, 6 for Wisconsin then we go up to

0:16:000:16:02

New Hampshire, which Sam gave us, on 7,

0:16:020:16:04

9 points for Nebraska, Pennsylvania,

0:16:040:16:06

10 for Louisiana. 11, we've already had three 11s,

0:16:060:16:09

but New Jersey also would have scored you 11.

0:16:090:16:11

13 for Kansas, 16 for Tennessee, 17 for Massachusetts,

0:16:110:16:15

18 for Arkansas, 20 for Missouri, 25 for Mississippi and South Carolina,

0:16:150:16:21

32 for Alaska, and the top three, let's take a look at them.

0:16:210:16:24

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

0:16:320:16:35

The pair we have to say goodbye to,

0:16:350:16:37

with their not-very-high score at all of 33 is Nick and Angela.

0:16:370:16:41

Nothing wrong with either of your answers, they just happened to

0:16:410:16:43

-score a lot.

-Yeah.

-And not even that much. But you just are

0:16:430:16:46

our high-scorers, I'm afraid, so we have do say goodbye to you,

0:16:460:16:49

we'll see you again next time. I'm sure it'll go much, much better but

0:16:490:16:51

meantime, thanks so much, Nick and Angela.

0:16:510:16:54

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

0:16:560:16:59

And so we are suddenly down to three pairs and at the end of this

0:17:040:17:07

round, I'm afraid to say we'll have to say goodbye to another pair

0:17:070:17:09

in time for our head-to-head round.

0:17:090:17:11

Well, Arthur and Tom, very well done, congratulations for your

0:17:110:17:14

lovely low scores but we move on to a new topic now.

0:17:140:17:17

So, who knows? We might have new low-scorers.

0:17:170:17:19

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

0:17:190:17:23

Oh, Sam, look at that. Art.

0:17:250:17:27

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

0:17:270:17:31

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

0:17:310:17:33

OK, and the question concerns...

0:17:370:17:40

-Richard.

-Yeah, we're going to give you some lists now of artworks by

0:17:430:17:46

different artists, you just have to tell us who the artists are,

0:17:460:17:49

please. We're going to give you their initials as well,

0:17:490:17:51

there's going to be six lists on the first board,

0:17:510:17:53

6 on the second - 12 in all to guess at home. Good luck.

0:17:530:17:55

Thanks very much indeed,

0:17:550:17:57

let's reveal our works of art and here they are.

0:17:570:17:59

Our first board of six reads like this.

0:17:590:18:01

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

0:18:300:18:32

Now then, Arthur, what would you like to go for?

0:18:550:18:58

I'm torn slightly between two.

0:18:580:19:01

So, I'm going to go for the bottom choice, and that is Paul Gauguin.

0:19:040:19:08

Paul Gauguin says Arthur, let's see if that's right,

0:19:090:19:12

let's see how many of our 100 people agree with Arthur.

0:19:120:19:15

It is Paul Gauguin.

0:19:170:19:19

And it's a good score.

0:19:230:19:24

Look at that, 16. Very well done indeed, Arthur. 16.

0:19:240:19:28

Yeah, "When Will You Marry?" was sold in 2015

0:19:290:19:33

for 300 million.

0:19:330:19:36

RICHARD WHISTLES Ooh-eee!

0:19:360:19:37

It included the frame, but still...

0:19:370:19:39

Thank you very much, Richard. Jane, now, what would you like to go for?

0:19:410:19:45

I'm going to go for the second one down - Salvador Dali.

0:19:460:19:50

Salvador Dali, says Jane, let's see how many of our 100 people

0:19:500:19:53

agree with Jane on Salvador Dali.

0:19:530:19:55

It's good.

0:19:580:20:00

16 is our only score, 25 is what

0:20:030:20:06

we get for Salvador Dali.

0:20:060:20:08

Well played.

0:20:080:20:09

That's the extraordinary painting in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery

0:20:090:20:12

-and Museum in Glasgow.

-Thank you, Richard.

0:20:120:20:15

Now, Tom, this board is all yours.

0:20:150:20:17

-Talk us through the board as much as you can.

-I can't, I'm afraid.

0:20:170:20:21

I'm going to have to go for the only one which I think I know,

0:20:210:20:24

which is the third one down, and Leonardo da Vinci.

0:20:240:20:27

OK, leaving Sam with a mountain to climb quite possibly,

0:20:270:20:31

maybe not, let's see, Leonardo da Vinci,

0:20:310:20:33

how far down the column do we get with that?

0:20:330:20:36

It's right.

0:20:390:20:40

54. Not bad, actually, could have been a lot worse.

0:20:430:20:46

54 for Leonardo da Vinci.

0:20:460:20:48

Yeah, the Mona Lisa was stolen in 1911 by an Italian handyman,

0:20:480:20:51

but he only got a few months in prison as he actually said

0:20:510:20:53

he only stole it because he wanted to return it to Italy.

0:20:530:20:56

He wasn't trying to get any financial gain out of it.

0:20:560:20:58

-Now, the top one, The Weeping Woman etc?

-Picasso.

0:20:580:21:02

Pablo Picasso.

0:21:020:21:04

Would have scored you 32. The Kiss?

0:21:040:21:05

GK?

0:21:050:21:07

-I know it.

-Yes, I know you do.

0:21:070:21:10

-Oh, who is it?

-Can I say?

0:21:100:21:13

-Gustav Klimt!

-Gustav Klimt! Of course it is, yes, sorry.

0:21:130:21:16

Absolutely right. Would have scored you 14.

0:21:160:21:19

This is the best answer, risky if you went for this.

0:21:190:21:21

Bridget Riley is the answer there.

0:21:210:21:23

Another terrific artist. Would have scored you 1 point.

0:21:230:21:25

-Very well done if you said that at home.

-There we are.

0:21:250:21:27

Thank you very much indeed. So, let's take a look at those scores. We're halfway through the round.

0:21:270:21:31

16, very well done, the best score of the pass, Arthur and Steph.

0:21:310:21:34

Currently looking like hot favourites to get into the

0:21:340:21:36

head-to-head, I'd say, then up to 25 we find Jane and Sue, then up

0:21:360:21:39

to 54, Tom and Sam.

0:21:390:21:41

Now, Sam, if anyone can do it,

0:21:410:21:43

you can, but a little bit of pressure on you there. You'll have

0:21:430:21:46

the new board so make sure you find the low-scoring one there.

0:21:460:21:48

That should keep you in the game. We're going to come back down the line now -

0:21:480:21:51

could the second players please step up to the podium?

0:21:510:21:54

OK, let's put six more sets of works of art up on the board,

0:21:570:22:01

and here they are.

0:22:010:22:03

I'm going to read those all again.

0:22:300:22:31

Sam.

0:22:510:22:53

Um, I'm going to go for The Card Players,

0:22:530:23:00

which is Paul Cezanne.

0:23:000:23:04

OK. Paul Cezanne, says Sam.

0:23:040:23:06

No red line for you because you're currently the high-scorers,

0:23:060:23:10

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

0:23:100:23:12

It's exactly what we needed. Very well done indeed.

0:23:230:23:25

5, taking your total up to 59. Very good, Sam.

0:23:250:23:29

There were five paintings that he did The Card Players,

0:23:290:23:31

one of which sold for 250 million to the Qatari royal family.

0:23:310:23:36

Thank you very much, Richard.

0:23:360:23:38

Sue. The high score is 59.

0:23:380:23:40

You're on 25, so 33 or less keeps you in.

0:23:400:23:44

Well, this is the moment when I think, "What I doing here?

0:23:440:23:48

"Why did I say yes?"

0:23:480:23:50

I'm going to have to go for the water lily one - Claude Monet.

0:23:510:23:56

Claude Monet, says Sue.

0:23:560:23:58

Here is your red line. Get below that with Claude Monet...

0:23:580:24:01

It's not too far down. ..and you're through to the head-to-head.

0:24:010:24:05

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

0:24:050:24:07

It's right.

0:24:100:24:11

Oh, you've done it. Look at that. 26.

0:24:140:24:17

-Very good indeed. 51 is your total.

-Yeah, well played.

0:24:200:24:22

Surprisingly low score, I think.

0:24:220:24:24

I think some of the hundred worried about Monet, Manet,

0:24:240:24:26

and that sort of thing.

0:24:260:24:28

Monet had two brothers, and ABBA wrote a song about them.

0:24:280:24:30

LAUGHTER

0:24:300:24:32

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:24:320:24:34

Now, this is going to be crucial, Steph, your answer at this point,

0:24:340:24:39

you're on a nice low score, thanks to Arthur's answer in the first pass.

0:24:390:24:43

42 or less is what you have to score.

0:24:430:24:46

Do you feel like talking us through the board?

0:24:460:24:48

I think the top one is Vincent van Gogh,

0:24:480:24:51

I think the bottom one is Edvard Munch but I'm going to go for

0:24:510:24:56

the second one down, and say Georgia O'Keeffe.

0:24:560:24:59

Georgia O'Keeffe.

0:24:590:25:01

Now, there is your red line. If you can get below that

0:25:010:25:04

with Georgia O'Keeffe, you are through to the head-to-head.

0:25:040:25:06

And we send our resident art expert home.

0:25:060:25:09

How many of our 100 people went for Georgia O'Keeffe?

0:25:090:25:12

It's right.

0:25:160:25:18

And you're through.

0:25:200:25:22

Very well done indeed.

0:25:240:25:25

That's a terrific answer, Stephanie, well played.

0:25:300:25:32

Another one of the artists up in the millions of dollars now,

0:25:320:25:35

Georgia O'Keeffe. Now there's a pointless answer up there.

0:25:350:25:37

It's not one of the other two you went for -

0:25:370:25:40

you went for Vincent van Gogh as well...

0:25:400:25:42

And you are right about Edvard Munch at the bottom as well.

0:25:430:25:46

But this one is a pointless answer.

0:25:460:25:48

Number 5, when it was sold, was the most expensive painting

0:25:480:25:50

-in the history of art.

-Jackson Pollock.

-Yeah.

0:25:500:25:54

And it's a pointless answer, very well done if you said that at home.

0:25:540:25:57

There we are, thank you very much indeed. So, at the end

0:25:570:26:00

of our second round, the pair who are heading home

0:26:000:26:02

with their high score of 59, I'm so sorry, Sam and Tom -

0:26:020:26:05

and to go out on an Art round as well!

0:26:050:26:07

LAUGHTER

0:26:070:26:08

Nothing wrong with your score, Sam, erm...Tom...

0:26:080:26:11

It's been great having you on the show, Tom...

0:26:110:26:13

LAUGHTER

0:26:130:26:15

Thank you, both, so much, it's been great. Thanks so much, Sam and Tom.

0:26:150:26:18

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

0:26:210:26:24

Congratulations, Arthur and Steph, Jane and Sue, you are now

0:26:280:26:31

one step closer to the final and the chance to play for our

0:26:310:26:34

jackpot, which currently stands at...

0:26:340:26:36

Well, you've reached the head-to-head,

0:26:400:26:42

which is wonderful, it means you are now allowed to confer

0:26:420:26:44

before you give your answers. First pair to win two questions

0:26:440:26:47

will be playing for that jackpot. Very best of luck,

0:26:470:26:50

let's play the head-to-head.

0:26:500:26:51

OK, here comes your first question and it concerns...

0:26:570:27:00

-Richard...

-Going to show you five stills from George Clooney films, can you name the films?

0:27:040:27:08

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

0:27:080:27:11

We've got...

0:27:110:27:13

There we are. Five George Clooney films. Now then,

0:27:380:27:41

Arthur and Steph, you've been our low-scorers, so you will go

0:27:410:27:43

first...

0:27:430:27:45

We're going to go for C, which is Burn After Reading.

0:27:450:27:50

Burn After Reading, say Arthur and Steph.

0:27:500:27:52

Now then, Jane and Sue, that board is all yours,

0:27:520:27:55

do you want to talk us through it?

0:27:550:27:58

No!

0:27:580:28:00

Erm, can't remember what A is, but it's reasonably recent, I think.

0:28:000:28:04

I think the only one we're really sure about is E...

0:28:040:28:06

-Which is...

-Gravity.

-Gravity! Sorry, nearly forgot.

0:28:080:28:12

-Gravity.

-OK, that's the one you are going to go for, so

0:28:120:28:14

we have Burn After Reading and we have Gravity.

0:28:140:28:17

Arthur and Steph said Burn After Reading, let's see if

0:28:170:28:19

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

0:28:190:28:22

It's right.

0:28:260:28:27

Oh, that's a good...

0:28:320:28:33

HE LAUGHS Very well done, Arthur and Steph!

0:28:350:28:38

Burn After Reading.

0:28:380:28:39

Now then, Jane and Sue, you've got your work cut out here,

0:28:410:28:43

you have gone for Gravity for E, let's see

0:28:430:28:46

how far down the column we get with that.

0:28:460:28:48

It's right.

0:28:510:28:52

Not bad, but there's no beating a score like 1, well done,

0:28:590:29:02

Arthur and Steph - after one question you are up 1-0.

0:29:020:29:04

Yeah, some terrific scoring on today's show.

0:29:040:29:07

Really, really high-quality stuff. There's three Coen brothers'

0:29:070:29:10

films there, all the lowest-scorers...

0:29:100:29:14

Got very bad reviews, I rather enjoyed it...

0:29:140:29:17

And the other Coen brothers' movie is...

0:29:220:29:24

Another great film...

0:29:260:29:27

Thanks very much indeed, Richard. So here comes your second question,

0:29:290:29:32

Jane and Sue. You get to answer it first but you have to win

0:29:320:29:34

this one to stay in the game, so good luck.

0:29:340:29:36

The second question in this round is all about...

0:29:360:29:39

Yeah, simply five clues now to facts about The Royal Society

0:29:420:29:45

-and its members. Very best of luck.

-Thanks very much.

0:29:450:29:47

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

0:29:470:29:50

We've got...

0:29:500:29:52

I'm going to read those all again...

0:30:170:30:18

Jane and Sue, you will go first.

0:30:430:30:45

THEY WHISPER

0:30:470:30:49

Well, this is hopeless for both of us, erm...

0:30:530:30:55

Just going to guess at the volcano -

0:30:570:30:58

-Krakatoa.

-Krakatoa, say Jane and Sue.

0:30:580:31:02

Now, Arthur and Steph, that board is all yours,

0:31:020:31:05

do you want to talk us through it?

0:31:050:31:07

Yes... So...

0:31:070:31:08

We think, but we're not - annoyingly - sure enough

0:31:090:31:13

that the top one is Charles II. The physicist is Isaac Newton.

0:31:130:31:17

The diarist and naval administrator, we're liking the look

0:31:170:31:21

of Samuel Pepys. And we don't know about Charles Babbage...

0:31:210:31:26

So I think we're going to try the third one, as Samuel Pepys.

0:31:260:31:30

Samuel Pepys, say Arthur and Steph. So we have Krakatoa

0:31:300:31:33

and we have Samuel Pepys. Jane and Sue took a punt on Krakatoa,

0:31:330:31:36

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

0:31:360:31:38

if it is...

0:31:380:31:40

It is right.

0:31:430:31:45

Very well done indeed, Jane and Sue, that takes you down...

0:31:450:31:49

That's a great score as well, Krakatoa.

0:31:490:31:51

Meanwhile, Arthur and Steph have gone for Samuel Pepys.

0:31:540:31:58

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

0:31:580:32:01

said Samuel Pepys.

0:32:010:32:02

It's right.

0:32:060:32:07

Oh... Very well done, Jane and Sue. Back in the game.

0:32:110:32:15

There we are, after two questions it's 1-1.

0:32:150:32:18

Yeah, an extraordinary event, the eruption of Krakatoa.

0:32:180:32:20

There's a book, I think by Simon Winchester, about it,

0:32:200:32:23

which is terrific, absolutely fascinating.

0:32:230:32:25

Now, if you had gone for Charles II, you'd have been right

0:32:250:32:28

but you wouldn't have won the point.

0:32:280:32:30

But you would have been right, so that's good.

0:32:300:32:32

The physicist is, of course...

0:32:320:32:34

And the computer - this is the best answer on the board,

0:32:370:32:39

it's a phrase I always love.

0:32:390:32:41

Fantastic. Right, there we are. I KNEW this was going to be close.

0:32:430:32:46

LAUGHTER

0:32:460:32:47

Moment of great inspiration there from Jane and Sue,

0:32:470:32:50

brought them back into contention, so it all hangs in the balance -

0:32:500:32:53

whoever wins this goes through to the final.

0:32:530:32:55

Our third question is all about...

0:32:550:32:57

-Richard.

-We're going to show you the names now of five school subjects,

0:33:010:33:04

but they are in German. Can you give us the most common

0:33:040:33:07

translations of these, please, and whoever does, in the most

0:33:070:33:10

obscure way, will be going through to play for that jackpot.

0:33:100:33:12

OK, let's reveal our five school subjects in German,

0:33:120:33:15

and here they come...

0:33:150:33:16

So, Arthur and Steph, you will go first this time.

0:33:350:33:37

THEY WHISPER

0:33:390:33:42

-Not 100% sure.

-I think that's too obvious...

0:33:420:33:46

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:33:460:33:48

We'd like to go for the fourth one, please, Kunst,

0:33:480:33:51

-and we believe that is Art.

-Art,

0:33:510:33:54

say Arthur and Steph, Art. Now then, Jane and Sue,

0:33:540:33:57

the board is all yours. Do you want to talk us through it?

0:33:570:34:00

Well, the bottom one is German, I think.

0:34:000:34:02

LAUGHTER

0:34:020:34:05

The middle one's... Oh, could be French...

0:34:050:34:08

THEY WHISPER

0:34:100:34:13

-Top one - history.

-History? Go on, then, go on.

0:34:200:34:24

We're going to guess... the top one, history.

0:34:240:34:28

OK, Informatik - history. So we have art and we have history.

0:34:290:34:34

Arthur and Steph have gone for art for Kunst.

0:34:340:34:37

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

0:34:370:34:40

Art...

0:34:400:34:42

21. Now, Jane and Sue...

0:34:530:34:56

These wild stabs in the dark you have been taking

0:34:560:34:59

have been fantastically successful so far.

0:34:590:35:01

-Informatik, let's find out if this...

-Thanks(!)

0:35:010:35:03

..continues. Informatik, is it History

0:35:030:35:05

and how many people said History, if it is?

0:35:050:35:07

Oh, bad luck!

0:35:100:35:11

Bad luck. Which means, Arthur and Steph, very well done.

0:35:110:35:14

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

0:35:140:35:17

Yeah, it's IT, I'm afraid, Informatik, computer science...

0:35:170:35:21

You're right about Deutsch at the bottom.

0:35:230:35:26

And Franzosisch...

0:35:290:35:31

Another big scorer, though.

0:35:310:35:32

So you would have had to have a guess at this last one,

0:35:320:35:35

I think, cos this is the best scorer...

0:35:350:35:38

And if you'd guessed...History...

0:35:380:35:40

-Oh, no!

-..you'd be in the final...

0:35:400:35:43

Thanks very much, Richard, so the pair leaving us

0:35:450:35:47

at the end of the head-to-head round,

0:35:470:35:49

it's Jane and Sue. But it's good news, really,

0:35:490:35:51

cos it means we get to see you again next show, we'll look forward

0:35:510:35:54

to that very much. Meantime, thanks so much,

0:35:540:35:56

Jane and Sue...

0:35:560:35:58

APPLAUSE

0:35:580:36:00

But for Arthur and Steph it's now time for our

0:36:000:36:02

Pointless Final.

0:36:020:36:03

Congratulations, Arthur and Steph, you have fought off all

0:36:060:36:09

the competition and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:36:090:36:12

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot,

0:36:190:36:21

and at the end of today's show the jackpot is...

0:36:210:36:23

Well done. I mean, no great surprise - from your first answer

0:36:280:36:32

onwards, it's been quite consistent low scoring,

0:36:320:36:35

which is very good. Anything you badly want to see

0:36:350:36:37

come up in this last round?

0:36:370:36:39

-You're quite good at politics.

-Yeah.

-Geography.

-Sport's usually

0:36:400:36:44

-kind to us when we watch Pointless on TV.

-Don't like sports.

0:36:440:36:46

-Geography would be nice.

-You like geography, we both like geography.

0:36:460:36:50

-Maybe science.

-Fingers crossed there is something up on the board

0:36:500:36:53

today that one of you at least will be happy with.

0:36:530:36:55

Today's categories are...

0:36:550:36:57

Golden Raspberries are the opposite of the Oscars.

0:37:070:37:09

Yeah, but I only know really famous ones.

0:37:090:37:12

-Premier League Managers - I'm probably on my own...

-Yep.

0:37:120:37:15

-But I do enjoy that.

-You would know more about that than I would

0:37:150:37:17

-know about anything else so...

-You're sure you don't want to go film?

0:37:170:37:20

-Yep.

-OK. All right. Then, in that case

0:37:200:37:23

we'll go for Premier League Managers, please.

0:37:230:37:25

-Premier League Managers it is.

-Well, judging by your performance

0:37:250:37:27

on the rest of the show, you've got a real chance here, I think.

0:37:270:37:30

This is what we're looking for...

0:37:300:37:31

Anyone who has been a full-time Premier League manager

0:37:310:37:34

from '92-'93 all the way through to January 2016,

0:37:340:37:37

who has also been capped for Ireland or Northern Ireland, or...

0:37:370:37:41

So any full-time manager in the Premier League from

0:37:460:37:48

'92-'93 through to January 2016,

0:37:480:37:50

who's had a full cap for Ireland, Northern Ireland,

0:37:500:37:53

Scotland, England or Wales. Very best of luck.

0:37:530:37:56

Thank you very much indeed. Now, as always, you've got

0:37:560:37:58

up to one minute to come up with three answers, and all you

0:37:580:38:00

need to win that jackpot is for just one of your answers

0:38:000:38:03

to be pointless. Are you ready?

0:38:030:38:05

-Yeah.

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

0:38:050:38:08

There they are, your time starts now.

0:38:080:38:10

-OK, have you got any thoughts?

-No.

0:38:100:38:13

Scotland's probably the one that's likely to come up with

0:38:130:38:16

the most obscure, so...

0:38:160:38:18

Gordon Strachan is one that comes to me immediately...

0:38:180:38:22

Roy Keane is a bit too obvious.

0:38:220:38:24

I think Peter Reid could be quite a good shout,

0:38:270:38:29

he's a former England...and Premier League manager so that's...

0:38:290:38:32

Peter Reid and Gordon Strachan.

0:38:320:38:35

Welsh managers...

0:38:350:38:37

Let's think...

0:38:380:38:39

Racking my brains, um...

0:38:420:38:44

Only another one.

0:38:460:38:47

20 seconds to go. Um...

0:38:500:38:52

-Somebody else...

-You can just use the one you had before...

0:38:530:38:56

-Roy Keane, Gordon Strachan...Peter Reid.

-Ten seconds left.

0:38:560:39:00

Just trying to think of someone else obscure...

0:39:000:39:04

-No...

-That's it... Yeah, do that.

0:39:070:39:10

OK, well, let's have your three answers.

0:39:100:39:12

-So it will be Roy Keane - Irish.

-Roy Keane.

0:39:120:39:15

-Gordon Strachan - Scottish.

-Gordon Strachan.

0:39:150:39:17

And Peter Reid - English.

0:39:170:39:19

Peter Reid. Of those three, which is your best shot at a

0:39:190:39:21

-pointless answer, do you think?

-I think, fractionally,

0:39:210:39:24

-Gordon Strachan.

-Gordon Strachan goes last.

0:39:240:39:26

-Least likely to be pointless?

-Roy Keane.

-Roy Keane

0:39:260:39:28

we will put first. Let's put those answers up on the board

0:39:280:39:31

in that order, then, and here they are...

0:39:310:39:33

Well, very good luck, three good answers on the board.

0:39:360:39:39

Now, if one of these is pointless and wins that jackpot for you,

0:39:390:39:43

£2,000, what would you like to do with it? Arthur, you first.

0:39:430:39:46

Well, we are engaged and hoping to get married next year,

0:39:460:39:51

so I think, on balance, I would quite like to put it towards that.

0:39:510:39:55

LAUGHTER

0:39:550:39:56

I think, on balance, he said the right thing there, didn't he, Steph?

0:39:560:39:59

-Yeah.

-Anything you would like to add to that?

-I'm going to go on holiday.

0:39:590:40:02

-LAUGHTER Quite right. What, alone?

-No, he can probably come.

0:40:020:40:05

He can come too, that's nice. OK, very best of luck.

0:40:050:40:08

Three good answers, your first answer was Roy Keane.

0:40:080:40:10

In this case we were looking for Irish-capped Premier League managers.

0:40:100:40:13

It has to be pointless for you to win that jackpot.

0:40:130:40:16

So, for £2,000, let's see how many of our 100 people said Roy Keane...

0:40:160:40:19

It's right.

0:40:230:40:25

Now, if Roy Keane can somehow get us all the way down to zero,

0:40:250:40:28

you will leave here immediately with £2,000 in your back pockets.

0:40:280:40:31

Down goes Roy Keane...

0:40:310:40:33

into the teens...

0:40:330:40:34

17 for Roy Keane.

0:40:340:40:36

My least-good answer.

0:40:360:40:38

I think you'd have been very surprised if that had gone

0:40:380:40:40

-down to pointless, he was holding a place there for you, I think.

-Yes.

0:40:400:40:44

So we move on to your next answer, which is Peter Reid.

0:40:440:40:47

In this case, we were looking for English and Welsh-capped

0:40:470:40:49

Premier League managers.

0:40:490:40:51

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

0:40:510:40:54

So let's find out how many people said Peter Reid -

0:40:540:40:56

is it pointless?

0:40:560:40:57

Well, it's another correct answer. Roy Keane

0:41:010:41:03

was right and took us all the way down to 17.

0:41:030:41:06

Peter Reid now takes us down through the 20s...

0:41:060:41:08

Into the teens, past the 17, down we go into single figures.

0:41:080:41:11

Down it goes. Still going down...

0:41:110:41:13

You've done it!

0:41:130:41:15

CHEERING

0:41:150:41:16

That is brilliant, well done.

0:41:160:41:18

Very good.

0:41:200:41:22

Very well done indeed. Congratulations, Peter Reid

0:41:250:41:28

is a pointless answer, which means you go home

0:41:280:41:30

with that jackpot of £2,000. Superb work, Arthur and Steph.

0:41:300:41:34

CHEERING

0:41:340:41:36

Nicely done. You know what, you've both been terrific

0:41:380:41:40

all the way through, when you made the smart move

0:41:400:41:42

of if one of you knew something about one of the subjects -

0:41:420:41:45

just leave it to them. That's the way to do this.

0:41:450:41:47

Brilliantly done. If you'd gone on to Gordon Strachan,

0:41:470:41:49

-he would have scored you 13 points.

-Interesting.

0:41:490:41:52

So, Peter Reid was your ace in the hole there.

0:41:520:41:54

We'll start with these guys, who were all Irish or Northern Irish internationals.

0:41:540:41:57

..Lawrie Sanchez, who managed Fulham.

0:42:010:42:03

Danny Wilson, Nigel Worthington and Owen Coyle -

0:42:030:42:06

all of those pointless as well. Those were all the

0:42:060:42:08

pointless answers there.

0:42:080:42:09

Scottish now - couple of Arsenal managers to start with...

0:42:090:42:12

..Malky Mackay and Steve Clarke, they were your

0:42:150:42:18

pointless answers there.

0:42:180:42:19

Some big names on this board...

0:42:190:42:21

-Wow!

-Obviously in the very early days of the Premier League.

0:42:230:42:26

You also could have had - quite a long list here...

0:42:270:42:29

Brian Kidd, Brian Little, Colin Todd, Gareth Southgate,

0:42:290:42:32

Gerry Francis, Joe Royle, John Gregory, Peter Reid,

0:42:320:42:35

Peter Taylor, Phil Neal, Ray Wilkins, Roy McFarland,

0:42:350:42:38

Sammy Lee, Steve Coppell, Stuart Pearce, Tony Adams

0:42:380:42:40

and Trevor Francis - all of those were pointless answers.

0:42:400:42:43

Very well done if you got any of those at home.

0:42:430:42:45

Thanks very much indeed, Richard, and thanks once again

0:42:450:42:47

to our winning players,

0:42:470:42:49

Arthur and Steph, who go away with today's jackpot of...

0:42:490:42:51

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

0:42:560:42:59

to the test on Pointless. Meanwhile, it's goodbye from Richard.

0:42:590:43:02

-Goodbye.

-And it's goodbye from me - goodbye.
