APPLAUSE

0:00:150:00:18

Thank you very much indeed.

0:00:220:00:23

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

0:00:230:00:25

the show where we are always striving

0:00:250:00:27

to find the most obscure answers.

0:00:270:00:29

Let's meet today's players.

0:00:290:00:30

APPLAUSE

0:00:300:00:32

And couple number one.

0:00:340:00:36

I'm Sue and I'm from Berkshire and this is my great friend Jane,

0:00:360:00:40

who is from Surrey.

0:00:400:00:41

Couple number two.

0:00:410:00:43

I'm Linda and this is Liz and we're friends from Lockerbie.

0:00:430:00:46

Couple number three.

0:00:460:00:48

Hello, I'm Lauren and this is my grandad Roger and we're from Essex.

0:00:480:00:51

And finally, couple number four.

0:00:510:00:53

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

0:00:530:00:55

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

0:00:550:00:58

And these are today's contestants.

0:00:580:00:59

APPLAUSE

0:00:590:01:01

Thanks very much, all of you.

0:01:010:01:02

We'll get to find out more about each of you throughout the show as it goes along, of course.

0:01:020:01:06

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

0:01:060:01:09

Here to apply more pressure than a sumo's loin knot...

0:01:090:01:12

LAUGHTER Let's hope it holds.

0:01:120:01:14

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

0:01:140:01:16

-Hiya. Hey, everybody.

-APPLAUSE

0:01:160:01:18

Afternoon.

0:01:180:01:20

A sumo's loin knot?

0:01:200:01:22

-Yeah.

-That is not an expression I've ever heard before.

-No.

0:01:220:01:26

-Is that what...? That ties up their sort of nappy?

-I think so.

0:01:260:01:29

-Mawashi, I think they call...

-It's called a mawashi?

0:01:290:01:31

-Yeah, I believe it is. I don't know what the knot is called.

-No.

0:01:310:01:34

-But I'm glad they're there.

-ALEXANDER LAUGHS

0:01:340:01:37

Two returning pairs, Jane and Sue got through to that very,

0:01:370:01:40

very high quality head-to-head last time, as well.

0:01:400:01:43

Angela and Nick,

0:01:430:01:44

hopefully we'll see a little bit more of you this time.

0:01:440:01:46

Now, before the show, we always walk along and chat to people

0:01:460:01:49

and, you know, say, "How are you feeling?"

0:01:490:01:52

And Roger, literally, like an assassin...

0:01:520:01:56

-GENTLE LAUGHTER

-"Are you nervous, Roger?" No.

0:01:560:01:58

And I believe him. Normally if I say, "Are you nervous?"

0:01:580:02:01

And people say no, I don't believe them. Roger...

0:02:010:02:03

Nerves of steel, that guy.

0:02:030:02:06

I've no idea if he knows the answer to any questions...

0:02:060:02:09

-LAUGHTER

-Well, that we'll find out.

0:02:090:02:11

But nothing else is going to faze him, I guarantee you that.

0:02:110:02:14

-Fantastic...

-If there's trouble at all in the studio...

-It's Roger.

0:02:140:02:18

We'll all... No.

0:02:180:02:19

We'll follow Roger. Roger leads us.

0:02:190:02:22

Roger becomes...

0:02:220:02:23

If this ends up just us, civilisation,

0:02:230:02:26

could happen, er, Roger will be our king.

0:02:260:02:30

-Is that...? Lauren, good idea?

-Yeah.

0:02:300:02:33

-No.

-LAUGHTER

0:02:330:02:35

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:02:360:02:38

Arthur and Steph won the jackpot last time,

0:02:380:02:40

so today's jackpot starts off back at £1,000, there it is.

0:02:400:02:44

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

0:02:440:02:47

APPLAUSE

0:02:470:02:48

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

0:02:510:02:54

of each round will be eliminated.

0:02:540:02:56

That's the rule you have to remember.

0:02:560:02:58

No conferring till we get to the head-to-head, of course.

0:02:580:03:00

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

0:03:000:03:03

Political Leaders.

0:03:050:03:06

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

0:03:060:03:10

THEY CONFER

0:03:100:03:11

Whoever's going first, step up to the podium.

0:03:110:03:13

OK. And the question concerns...

0:03:160:03:18

Prime Ministers Around The World, Richard.

0:03:210:03:23

On each board, we're going to show you some lists of people,

0:03:230:03:25

all of whom have been prime ministers of the same country.

0:03:250:03:28

We need you to name the country. There'll be seven on the first board,

0:03:280:03:31

seven on the second, 14 in all to have a go at at home.

0:03:310:03:33

Very best of luck.

0:03:330:03:34

OK, so we're looking for the countries

0:03:340:03:36

that these prime ministers have governed.

0:03:360:03:38

Here's our first board of seven...

0:03:380:03:40

GENTLE LAUGHTER

0:03:400:03:42

We're only halfway through, I've got to do it again, now.

0:04:120:04:14

OK... GENTLE LAUGHTER

0:04:140:04:15

Good, you're all still here. Fine. GENTLE LAUGHTER

0:04:400:04:43

-Sue, welcome back.

-Hello.

-Welcome back. Now, head-to-head last time.

0:04:430:04:46

-Got very, very exciting.

-Yes.

0:04:460:04:49

Oh, Krakatoa came to your aid.

0:04:490:04:51

I don't know where I got that from.

0:04:510:04:53

Who cares? It was a great answer. Just at the right time.

0:04:530:04:55

Now, Sue, remind us what you like getting up to.

0:04:550:04:58

Apart from looking after grandchildren,

0:04:580:05:01

-occasionally now, cos most of them are at school...

-Yeah.

0:05:010:05:04

I like reading, crosswords, travel.

0:05:040:05:07

Which crosswords do you like doing?

0:05:070:05:09

Is there...? Is there a particular paper that you like...?

0:05:090:05:12

-The paper, the Telegraph.

-Oh, that's a good one.

-Yes.

-That's a good one.

0:05:120:05:16

-Yes, yeah.

-How long does it take you generally, Sue?

0:05:160:05:19

Is it a daytime's travail,

0:05:190:05:20

or is it something you knock off in five minutes?

0:05:200:05:23

-Two or three weeks...

-LAUGHTER

0:05:230:05:26

Sue, how are you feeling about our prime ministers here?

0:05:260:05:30

I'm going to play safe.

0:05:320:05:34

Malcolm Turnbull, et cetera, Australia.

0:05:340:05:38

Australia, says Sue. Let's see if that's right,

0:05:380:05:40

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

0:05:400:05:43

It's right.

0:05:450:05:46

Ooh.

0:05:470:05:49

61 for Australia. APPLAUSE

0:05:490:05:51

Not bad.

0:05:510:05:53

Yes, solid start.

0:05:530:05:55

Do you know they used to have wombats the size of rhinos

0:05:550:05:57

-in Australia?

-ALEXANDER GASPS

0:05:570:05:59

I mean, millennia ago, or...?

0:05:590:06:00

-Oh, yeah. Not like in the last 20 years.

-Oh, I see.

0:06:000:06:03

-We'd have heard...

-We'd have heard about that, surely.

-Exactly.

0:06:030:06:05

-That's a big wombat.

-I mean, imagine.

0:06:050:06:09

I tell you what, a rhino the size of a wombat, that would be quite sweet.

0:06:090:06:12

GENTLE LAUGHTER Yeah.

0:06:120:06:13

-Aw...

-That would be nice, then we could have little pet rhinos.

0:06:130:06:16

-Aw.

-Aw.

-Aw. Oh, you'd want them house-trained, wouldn't you?

0:06:160:06:20

-A rhino?

-Pet rhino, yeah.

0:06:200:06:21

I tell you what, you'd always have someone to get your keys.

0:06:210:06:24

LAUGHTER

0:06:240:06:26

ALEXANDER WHEEZES Thank you very much indeed.

0:06:260:06:28

-No, but it would run away.

-Oh, yeah.

0:06:280:06:30

-You're going to hear it.

-Oh, yeah.

-Jangle, jangle.

0:06:300:06:33

GENTLE LAUGHTER

0:06:330:06:34

Erm... Now then, Linda.

0:06:340:06:36

Welcome to Pointless. Great to have you here, from Lockerbie.

0:06:360:06:39

-Yes.

-What do you do, Linda?

-I'm a roads technician.

0:06:390:06:42

Now, hang on, what's a roads technician?

0:06:420:06:44

Erm, organise and supervise surfacing and patching and drainage.

0:06:440:06:49

Everything to do with...maintenance.

0:06:490:06:52

Do you get to go round with a spray can?

0:06:520:06:55

-LINDA LAUGHS

-Sometimes.

0:06:550:06:57

Now, that's fun, isn't it? Ah, I'd love to do that.

0:06:570:06:59

And what are your interests, Linda?

0:06:590:07:02

I like socialising, exercising, walking my dog, listening to music.

0:07:020:07:07

Very good indeed. Now, Linda,

0:07:070:07:09

what would you like to go for on this board?

0:07:090:07:11

This is the worst subject for me.

0:07:110:07:13

I'll go for the second bottom one and try Russia.

0:07:130:07:18

Fradkov, Medvedev and Putin, Russia, says Linda.

0:07:180:07:21

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

0:07:210:07:25

It is Russia. Eeh... Look at that.

0:07:260:07:28

Look, it's five better than 100.

0:07:280:07:31

APPLAUSE 95 for Russia.

0:07:310:07:34

-That's Putin doing a lot of that, I think.

-Yeah.

0:07:340:07:37

-Yeah.

-Mind you, when it comes to heavy lifting, he can do it.

0:07:370:07:40

-Oh, he really, really can.

-I mean...

0:07:400:07:42

You know, there are 11 million more women than there are men in Russia.

0:07:420:07:45

Is there a...? Why? Why?

0:07:450:07:47

-Why?

-A number of reasons.

0:07:470:07:49

A number of reasons, one of which was to do with, er,

0:07:490:07:51

with wombats the size of rhinos, which we cannot go into.

0:07:510:07:55

There you are. Thank you very much indeed.

0:07:550:07:57

-Roger, welcome to Pointless, here from Essex.

-Yeah.

0:07:570:08:00

-What do you do, Roger?

-I'm a retired postman.

0:08:000:08:03

When did you...? When did you finish...posting?

0:08:030:08:06

-Postman-ing?

-About 22 years ago.

0:08:060:08:08

-And how do you fill your retirement, Roger?

-I play darts.

0:08:080:08:12

Er, we've got a league that we play darts in, in Waltham Abbey.

0:08:120:08:17

Erm, I collect photographs of myself with celebrities.

0:08:170:08:22

I notice Roger hasn't asked for a photograph with either you or me.

0:08:220:08:26

-Well, he... He asked for one with me.

-Oh.

-Did he not...?

0:08:260:08:29

LAUGHTER

0:08:290:08:31

People talk about selfies now,

0:08:330:08:35

but I've been doing it for 50-odd years, so...

0:08:350:08:39

You always had to collar someone else to take the picture?

0:08:390:08:41

-Well, no, I sort of...

-You'd...? Oh, that's clever.

-Yeah.

0:08:410:08:44

What's the most exciting celebrity in your collection?

0:08:440:08:48

Who, I should say, is the most exciting celebrity?

0:08:480:08:50

Don't know. Muhammad Ali, Diana? Princess Diana?

0:08:500:08:54

-Wow. And you've got photographs with all of them?

-Yeah, yeah...

0:08:540:08:57

-Oh... So how big is the collection?

-Oh, quite a few.

0:08:570:09:00

-Thousands.

-Quite a few.

0:09:000:09:02

LAUGHTER

0:09:020:09:04

Impressive, Roger. Now, what would you like to go for from our board?

0:09:040:09:07

Is there anyone on that board you've taken a photograph with?

0:09:070:09:10

-No.

-Ah...

-Er...

0:09:100:09:12

I'm going to take a chance on the third one down and say Greece.

0:09:140:09:18

Greece for Tsipras, Samaras and Papademos.

0:09:180:09:21

Greece, says Roger.

0:09:210:09:22

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

0:09:220:09:25

It is right, 60...

0:09:280:09:29

Oh, 74 is your score there.

0:09:290:09:32

APPLAUSE

0:09:320:09:34

Yeah, got more and more in the news, especially with Tsipras,

0:09:340:09:37

that's why it scores quite so highly, 74.

0:09:370:09:40

It's compulsory to vote in Greece between the ages of 18 and 70.

0:09:400:09:43

See, that's good. That is good.

0:09:430:09:45

Yeah, I think if you're given a "none of the above option",

0:09:450:09:48

-I think... It seems sensible.

-Yeah.

0:09:480:09:51

Thank you very much, Richard. Now, Angela.

0:09:510:09:54

-Hello.

-Angela, it was Round One last time we had to say goodbye to you.

0:09:540:09:57

-I know!

-Please tell me that's not going to happen again this time.

0:09:570:10:01

It's not in my hands at the moment.

0:10:010:10:02

It slightly is, but anyway, yes, we'll come to that in a moment.

0:10:020:10:06

-Remind us what you do, Angela.

-OK, I work for the NHS.

0:10:060:10:08

I'm Digital Communications Manager at London North West Healthcare

0:10:080:10:11

and I'm based at Northwick Park Hospital.

0:10:110:10:14

Very good.

0:10:140:10:15

And when the digital stuff is finished at the end of each day,

0:10:150:10:18

what delights you?

0:10:180:10:19

I like to watch football, I'm a big Chelsea FC fan.

0:10:190:10:22

Erm, I like to read and I love to do a bit of creative writing, as well.

0:10:220:10:27

Oh, do you? What sort of creative writing to you like doing?

0:10:270:10:29

I like doing teenage novels,

0:10:290:10:31

I've had a few published. I like writing for children, as well.

0:10:310:10:34

That's impressive. What books have you had published? What are they?

0:10:340:10:37

Couple back in the '90s that were aimed at Asian teenagers,

0:10:370:10:40

-cos there really wasn't anything around then.

-Yeah.

0:10:400:10:42

-So, yeah. They did OK.

-Congratulations, very good indeed.

0:10:420:10:45

Now, Angela, we come back to this thorny issue of prime ministers.

0:10:450:10:48

-I... Yes, yes, erm...

-Yes, exactly.

-Erm...

0:10:480:10:52

-Yes.

-I'm going to have to make an educated guess,

0:10:520:10:55

looking at the names.

0:10:550:10:56

You know, sometimes it works to people's advantage,

0:10:560:10:59

being on that far podium, cos it encourages you to take

0:10:590:11:01

-a risk you wouldn't otherwise have taken.

-OK, I'm going to go for China.

0:11:010:11:05

Good, for which one?

0:11:050:11:06

-The bottom one!

-OK, for the bottom one. OK, China.

0:11:060:11:11

Shall we see if that's right? Shall we see how many people said it?

0:11:110:11:14

-Oh!

-Ooh.

0:11:160:11:18

-Oh, God...

-Oh, Angela.

0:11:180:11:20

I think that was an educated guess.

0:11:200:11:22

-It was very, well, uneducated.

-It was very...

0:11:220:11:24

No, it was an educated guess.

0:11:240:11:25

It was, it turns out it was wrong, but, um...

0:11:250:11:28

Still educated. It's exactly what I would've said.

0:11:280:11:31

Scored you 100 points, I'm afraid.

0:11:310:11:33

I bet it's not the last 100 of the round.

0:11:330:11:35

Yeah, none of them Chinese politicians, I'm afraid.

0:11:350:11:38

Singapore is the answer to that.

0:11:380:11:39

-Actually our 100 did very well, got seven points.

-Wow.

0:11:390:11:42

So very well done to our 100.

0:11:420:11:44

Now the top one, the big clue there is Olof Palme,

0:11:440:11:47

-who was very famously assassinated.

-Sweden.

-Sweden, yeah.

0:11:470:11:50

Would've scored you 19.

0:11:500:11:52

-Nasser, probably the big clue on the next one down.

-Egypt.

0:11:520:11:55

Egypt, yeah.

0:11:550:11:56

Would've scored you 43.

0:11:560:11:58

Now the best answer on the board,

0:11:580:11:59

very well done, anyone at home, who got this.

0:11:590:12:02

Hard to work out with the language, bits of it look kind of Asian,

0:12:020:12:05

-bits of it look Finnish.

-Yeah.

-It's Albania.

0:12:050:12:08

Albania.

0:12:080:12:09

Two points for that, so again, very well done to our 100.

0:12:090:12:12

-Our 100 are brilliant.

-Well, that's...

0:12:120:12:14

-Yeah, or Albanian, one or the other.

-LAUGHTER

0:12:140:12:16

Thanks very much indeed, Richard.

0:12:160:12:18

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

0:12:180:12:20

61, the best score of the pass, very well done indeed, Sue.

0:12:200:12:23

74 is where we find Roger and Lauren.

0:12:230:12:26

95 is where we find Linda and Liz and then 100 is where we find

0:12:260:12:29

Angela and Nick.

0:12:290:12:30

The nice thing is it's been a very high-scoring round, Nick.

0:12:300:12:33

-So you're not too far out in front there.

-OK.

0:12:330:12:35

A nice low score from you

0:12:350:12:36

should keep you in the game,

0:12:360:12:38

so good luck with that. We're going to come back down the line now.

0:12:380:12:40

Can the second players please step up to the podium?

0:12:400:12:43

OK, let's put seven more lists of prime ministers up on the board.

0:12:450:12:48

And here they come.

0:12:480:12:50

We've got...

0:12:500:12:51

Thanks, Steve.

0:13:150:13:16

GENTLE LAUGHTER And...

0:13:160:13:18

ALEXANDER EXHALES DEEPLY

0:13:210:13:23

APPLAUSE Oh, thank you.

0:13:490:13:51

I feel like someone should hand me one of those

0:13:540:13:56

sort of foil blankets at the end of that.

0:13:560:13:58

-Nick...

-Hello.

-Well done. You've made it.

0:13:580:14:01

Welcome back. Welcome back.

0:14:010:14:03

-Remind us what you do.

-I work for the NHS, as well.

0:14:030:14:06

I'm a communications and marketing manager, based in the Midlands.

0:14:060:14:09

So how do you and Angela...? I mean, obviously, I know Angela

0:14:090:14:12

works in digital communications,

0:14:120:14:14

so I can think of any number of reasons how you might know

0:14:140:14:16

each other, but did you work together at the same place?

0:14:160:14:19

We both work for the NHS now.

0:14:190:14:21

I started my job at the NHS just yesterday,

0:14:210:14:23

but we met when we worked at a local council in Buckinghamshire.

0:14:230:14:27

Oh, I see. That's nice. And you've remained friends ever since.

0:14:270:14:30

Whose idea was it to come on the show?

0:14:300:14:32

-It was, it was mine.

-THEY LAUGH

0:14:320:14:35

-There we are. And Angela, the obvious person to bring.

-Yeah...

0:14:350:14:38

Of course. Of course. Now, you know what you have to do here, Nick.

0:14:380:14:41

-OK.

-You have to find a lovely low score. Are you feeling confident?

0:14:410:14:44

I could have an educated guess at a few of them, just by the language.

0:14:440:14:49

But I'm going to go with a very safe one, which is

0:14:490:14:51

Pierre Trudeau, Justin Trudeau, Stephen Harper, that's Canada.

0:14:510:14:54

Canada, says Nick.

0:14:540:14:56

No red line, you're the high-scorers,

0:14:560:14:58

let's see how far down the column you can get with Canada.

0:14:580:15:01

It's right.

0:15:020:15:03

61.

0:15:060:15:07

APPLAUSE 161 is your score.

0:15:070:15:10

I think you might have done enough

0:15:100:15:11

to keep yourselves in the game there.

0:15:110:15:13

Yeah, supposedly the Hawaiian pizza was invented in Canada.

0:15:130:15:16

By a Greek.

0:15:160:15:17

GENTLE LAUGHTER

0:15:170:15:19

-How extraordinary.

-Yeah.

-How...

0:15:190:15:22

ALEXANDER EXHALES DEEPLY Did you know that, Lauren?

0:15:240:15:26

-Yeah...

-Yeah? THEY LAUGH

0:15:260:15:29

Lauren, what do you do?

0:15:290:15:30

I'm studying to be a classical singer

0:15:300:15:32

and also studying music theory.

0:15:320:15:34

I'm going to say mezzo soprano.

0:15:340:15:36

-Exactly.

-Yay! Look at that.

0:15:360:15:38

And what sort of singing do you do?

0:15:380:15:40

More opera singing, or is it more choral style, or...?

0:15:400:15:44

It's more opera singing...

0:15:440:15:46

-Right.

-..at the moment.

0:15:460:15:48

-I'm just kind of going through my grades.

-Very good. Well done, that's fantastic.

0:15:480:15:51

And when not doing that, what are you getting up to?

0:15:510:15:54

I'm very much into Japan and Japanese culture, cosplay, anime...

0:15:540:16:00

-Things like that, really.

-Very good. Have you been to Japan?

0:16:010:16:04

-No, not yet. It's on my wish list.

-Very good. Win the jackpot today,

0:16:040:16:07

put it towards a trip to Japan, I think, Lauren.

0:16:070:16:09

Now, there you are on 74. 161's the high score.

0:16:090:16:12

86 or less sees you through.

0:16:120:16:14

So, that shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Well, I say that.

0:16:140:16:18

Then I look at that board and... THEY LAUGH

0:16:180:16:20

I'm torn between going for a risky one

0:16:200:16:22

or one that I'm pretty sure I know.

0:16:220:16:24

SHE SIGHS

0:16:240:16:26

I'm going to go for the second one, Shinzo, Yoshihiko, Naoto,

0:16:260:16:29

for Japan.

0:16:290:16:31

Surely, Japan. Let's see.

0:16:310:16:33

Here is your red line, nice and high.

0:16:330:16:35

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

0:16:350:16:38

It's right.

0:16:410:16:42

62, very well done indeed.

0:16:430:16:46

Gets you through, takes your total up to 136.

0:16:460:16:49

Yeah, well, you had to go for that one, really, didn't you?

0:16:490:16:51

Yeah, Abe Shinzo's grandfather and great uncle were both

0:16:510:16:54

prime ministers of Japan as well.

0:16:540:16:56

Thank you very much. Liz, welcome to Pointless.

0:16:560:16:59

-Thank you.

-Great to have you here. What you do?

-I'm retired now.

0:16:590:17:02

-What did you do?

-I worked with the local government, admin.

0:17:020:17:05

You weren't anything to do with the roads as well, where you?

0:17:050:17:08

-Yes.

-HE GASPS

0:17:080:17:09

So, did you and Linda meet on the roads? On the tarmac?

0:17:090:17:12

-Yes, yes, we did.

-Were you desk-bound or did you get out

0:17:120:17:15

-to the roads?

-I was desk-bound.

-I see.

0:17:150:17:16

But, presumably, you drove on those roads to get there.

0:17:160:17:19

-So, you had first-hand experience.

-Well, on my bicycle I did anyway.

0:17:190:17:22

Oh, that's even more first-hand.

0:17:220:17:23

That's more than just first-hand, that's first...

0:17:230:17:26

A lot. What are your interests now, Liz? What do you like getting into?

0:17:260:17:29

-I like walking in the country.

-Lovely.

0:17:290:17:31

-Doing cryptic crosswords.

-Very good.

0:17:310:17:34

Can I ask...? Now I've started, I've got to continue.

0:17:340:17:37

-What cryptic crosswords to you like?

-The Daily Mail, which isn't too bad.

0:17:370:17:40

-You know, not too difficult.

-Not too difficult.

-No.

-Very good.

0:17:400:17:43

Sudoko. And I like going to the horse racing as well.

0:17:430:17:47

-Very good. A lot of good racing around you.

-Yes.

0:17:470:17:50

Fantastic. Now, Liz, there you are on 95.

0:17:500:17:53

The high score is still Nick and Angela.

0:17:530:17:56

65 or less, Liz, is what you require.

0:17:560:17:59

There are only two that I know for definite.

0:17:590:18:01

It's just knowing which one will be the lowest.

0:18:010:18:04

Golda Meir, Menachem Begin, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel.

0:18:050:18:11

Israel says Liz. Here is your red line,

0:18:110:18:13

get below that with Israel and you're into round two.

0:18:130:18:16

How many of our 100 people said Israel?

0:18:160:18:19

It's right.

0:18:220:18:23

And you're through. Just. Look at that!

0:18:230:18:25

63. 65 you needed, 63 you got.

0:18:250:18:29

-158 is your total.

-Super-close, wasn't it?

0:18:290:18:32

Yeah, Israeli bank notes have Braille on them. It's a good idea.

0:18:320:18:34

-That's clever.

-It is a good idea, isn't it?

0:18:340:18:36

A very good idea. It also gives it a bit of purchase in a back pocket.

0:18:360:18:41

It's going to fall out less easily.

0:18:410:18:43

-Like Velcro.

-Yeah.

0:18:430:18:45

SCATTERED LAUGHTER

0:18:450:18:46

Thank you very much indeed.

0:18:460:18:48

Jane, welcome back. Remind us what you do, Jane.

0:18:480:18:52

I work for my local charity, the Children's Trust in Tadworth.

0:18:520:18:56

That is right. And what are your interests, Jane?

0:18:560:18:59

Reading, walking my lovely dog, Archie.

0:18:590:19:03

Who we've recently been assessed to be a PAT dog.

0:19:030:19:06

-Pets As Therapy.

-Oh, I see. Right.

0:19:060:19:08

So, we've been assessed,

0:19:080:19:10

we haven't got the official confirmation whether we are in.

0:19:100:19:13

-But he did do really well.

-Clever Archie. How old's Archie?

0:19:130:19:17

-He's seven. Golden retriever.

-Lovely.

0:19:170:19:19

-Gorgeous.

-Very nice indeed.

0:19:190:19:21

Now, Jane, what I would normally do is ask you to go through the board,

0:19:210:19:24

-but I'm not going to on this occasion.

-Thank you.

0:19:240:19:26

Because, if you were to score 100,

0:19:260:19:28

-we would have a lock-down scenario.

-Ooh!

0:19:280:19:31

I know, I know. Sue, you said, "I was just thinking that."

0:19:310:19:34

-We wouldn't want that.

-No.

0:19:340:19:37

What would you like to go for?

0:19:370:19:38

Ideally, you'd score 99 or less.

0:19:380:19:41

I'm going to go for the top one, then,

0:19:410:19:44

-and hope it's New Zealand.

-New Zealand.

0:19:440:19:47

OK, here is your red line. Lovely and high.

0:19:470:19:50

Essentially, you just have to have it right, I'd say.

0:19:500:19:52

Let's see if New Zealand will do that for you.

0:19:520:19:54

It's right.

0:19:570:19:58

And you are through.

0:19:580:20:00

Down it goes.

0:20:010:20:02

28!

0:20:020:20:03

Very well done indeed. 28 is actually the lowest score

0:20:030:20:06

of the whole round. Very well done.

0:20:060:20:08

And 89, the lowest combined score. Very good on podium one, there.

0:20:080:20:11

Well played. Let's fill this board in, shall we?

0:20:110:20:13

-Indira Gandhi, Nehru and Narendra Modi are India.

-India.

0:20:130:20:18

That would have scored you 86.

0:20:190:20:21

Now, Abdelmalek Sellal and the rest,

0:20:210:20:23

this is the best answer on the board.

0:20:230:20:24

You'd probably have to guess this -

0:20:240:20:27

Algeria.

0:20:270:20:29

Algeria, and that would have scored you 1 point.

0:20:290:20:31

Now, Helle Thorning-Schmidt we know. She's been in the news a lot.

0:20:310:20:33

-We know indeed. Yeah.

-She's married to Stephen Kinnock.

-Denmark.

0:20:330:20:37

Denmark, yeah. And that would have scored you 9 points.

0:20:370:20:39

Thank you very much.

0:20:390:20:41

So, at the end of our first round,

0:20:410:20:42

the pair we are sending home with the highest score, Nick and Angela.

0:20:420:20:46

-I'm sorry.

-We tried.

-How is this happening twice in a row?

0:20:460:20:49

-We're the understudies.

-I know, but... I...

0:20:490:20:52

It's not a true reflection of your abilities on the show.

0:20:520:20:55

Of that, I am quite certain.

0:20:550:20:56

I'm afraid you've used up both your Pointless lives, so to speak.

0:20:560:20:59

That sounds a bit sinister, doesn't it?

0:20:590:21:01

But we have to say goodbye to you.

0:21:010:21:02

-Thank you so much for coming and playing both times.

-Thank you.

0:21:020:21:05

Both times far too quick.

0:21:050:21:06

But anyway, Nick and Angela, thanks very much indeed.

0:21:060:21:08

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

0:21:110:21:14

And so we are now down to three pairs, and at the end of this round,

0:21:180:21:21

we will have to say goodbye to another pair.

0:21:210:21:23

Jane and Sue, oh! Wonderful low scores there. Fantastic.

0:21:230:21:27

Lowest individual and lowest joint score in that round.

0:21:270:21:30

Setting out your stall once again, I think.

0:21:300:21:33

Got your eyes set on the head-to-head.

0:21:330:21:35

Best of luck to all three pairs, though.

0:21:350:21:36

Our category for Round Two today is...

0:21:360:21:39

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

0:21:410:21:43

who's going to go second?

0:21:430:21:45

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

0:21:450:21:47

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

0:21:500:21:53

We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name as many of the nation's

0:21:530:21:59

favourite number one Beatles songs as they could.

0:21:590:22:03

-Richard.

-Yeah, in 2015, ITV held a poll to find the nation's favourite

0:22:030:22:07

number one single by the Beatles.

0:22:070:22:10

It could have been number one in the UK or the US.

0:22:100:22:12

27 tracks on this list,

0:22:120:22:15

just need to find the most obscure one, please.

0:22:150:22:17

Thank you very much indeed.

0:22:170:22:20

Jane, what would you like to go for?

0:22:200:22:22

I'm going to try with...

0:22:240:22:27

In My Life.

0:22:270:22:29

In My Life says Jane. Let's see if that's right.

0:22:290:22:31

Let's see how many of our 100 people went for In My Life.

0:22:310:22:34

-Oh, no, bad luck!

-No!

0:22:370:22:39

-I'm afraid In My Life not a correct answer. 100 points.

-Never mind.

0:22:390:22:42

Yeah, a very beautiful song, but not number one,

0:22:420:22:44

I'm afraid, on either side of the Atlantic. That's unlucky.

0:22:440:22:47

Ah, yes.

0:22:470:22:49

You might not be the only high scorer like that, Jane.

0:22:490:22:52

Lauren, what would you like to go for?

0:22:520:22:55

Erm...

0:22:550:22:57

Help!

0:22:570:22:59

-Help! says Lauren.

-That's just about right, yeah.

0:22:590:23:01

Yeah, OK. Let's see how many of our 100 people went for Help!

0:23:010:23:05

It's right.

0:23:070:23:09

There we are.

0:23:120:23:14

33 for Help!

0:23:140:23:15

-Very well done indeed.

-Well played, Lauren.

0:23:150:23:17

That was number one in the UK and the US.

0:23:170:23:20

Thanks very much indeed. Now, Linda,

0:23:200:23:23

what would you like to go for?

0:23:230:23:26

A Hard Day's Night.

0:23:260:23:27

A Hard Day's Night, let's see if that's right.

0:23:270:23:30

Let's see how many of our 100 people went for Hard Day's Night.

0:23:300:23:33

It's right.

0:23:340:23:36

Very well done. Down to 16.

0:23:400:23:43

Well played on that far podium.

0:23:430:23:46

Yeah, the title track of their first film.

0:23:460:23:48

-And that was also number one in the US and the UK.

-Thanks very much.

0:23:480:23:51

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

0:23:510:23:54

16, the best score of the pass, Linda. Well done, Linda and Liz.

0:23:540:23:57

Looking pretty good for the head-to-head.

0:23:570:23:59

As are, I would say, Roger and Lauren at this stage.

0:23:590:24:02

Jane and Sue, bad luck.

0:24:020:24:04

-Sue, you know what you need to do.

-Yeah.

0:24:040:24:06

I hope you've got a good answer for when we come back down to you.

0:24:060:24:08

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

0:24:080:24:11

Will the second players please step up to the podium?

0:24:110:24:14

OK, Liz. We're looking for singles that featured

0:24:140:24:19

on the list of the nation's favourite number one Beatles song.

0:24:190:24:22

-Hey Jude.

-Hey Jude says Liz.

0:24:220:24:25

Ideally, you'd score 83 or less. Here's your red line.

0:24:250:24:29

Get below this red line with Hey Jude, you are into the head-to-head.

0:24:290:24:33

It's right.

0:24:350:24:37

And you are through.

0:24:370:24:38

43.

0:24:390:24:42

59 is your total.

0:24:420:24:44

That was actually voted number one in the nation's favourite Beatles

0:24:440:24:47

song, Hey Jude. Again, number one in the US and the UK.

0:24:470:24:50

At the time, it was the longest ever number one single in the UK.

0:24:500:24:53

-Seven minutes 11 seconds.

-Is it that long?

0:24:530:24:56

-It is long.

-The na-na-na bit.

-They go on a long time, yeah.

0:24:560:24:59

-The na-na-na bit.

-Yeah, as I believe it's called in the business.

0:24:590:25:03

-Yeah.

-That record has been beaten since.

0:25:030:25:05

All Around The World by Oasis is now the longest ever number one single.

0:25:050:25:09

Thank you very much, Richard. Now, then, Roger.

0:25:090:25:12

You're on 33. 66 or less gets you through.

0:25:120:25:16

I really don't know if it was a number one,

0:25:160:25:18

but I'm going to go for Yellow Submarine.

0:25:180:25:20

Yellow Submarine says Roger. Let's see if that's right.

0:25:200:25:23

Here's your red line. Get below that, you're through.

0:25:230:25:26

It's right.

0:25:280:25:31

And you are through. Very well done indeed.

0:25:310:25:34

32.

0:25:340:25:36

65 is your total.

0:25:370:25:39

Good work, Roger. Yeah, number one in the UK, Yellow Submarine.

0:25:390:25:42

Thank you, Richard. Now, Sue.

0:25:420:25:44

Sue, I'm afraid you are our high scorers.

0:25:440:25:47

-Even before your answer.

-Yeah.

-I'm sorry.

0:25:470:25:51

-It's OK.

-Anyhow, what are you going to go for?

0:25:510:25:54

-Love Me Do.

-Love Me Do, says Sue.

0:25:540:25:56

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

0:25:560:25:59

went for that. No red line for you, I'm afraid,

0:25:590:26:01

as you are the high scorers.

0:26:010:26:03

It's right.

0:26:040:26:05

Good answer!

0:26:100:26:12

15. Lowest score of the round there, Sue. Very well done.

0:26:120:26:16

-115, your total.

-Yeah, that was only number-one in the US.

0:26:160:26:20

It was a very early Beatles single in the UK.

0:26:200:26:22

It wasn't a number one single. There is one pointless answer.

0:26:220:26:25

It was a number one in the US, not the UK.

0:26:250:26:27

It's Eight Days A Week, was the best answer on the board.

0:26:270:26:30

One point for We Can Work It Out, Come Together, and I Feel Fine.

0:26:300:26:34

Two points for the Ballad Of John And Yoko,

0:26:340:26:37

two points also for Something. A beautiful song.

0:26:370:26:40

Three points for The Long And Winding Road.

0:26:400:26:42

Four points for Day-tripper and Hello, Goodbye.

0:26:420:26:44

And the next best, six points, for From Me To You,

0:26:440:26:47

Can't Buy Me Love, and All You Need Is Love.

0:26:470:26:49

Lady Madonna, seven points as well. Those are the best answers there.

0:26:490:26:52

-Shall we take a look at the top three answers?

-Mm!

0:26:520:26:54

The ones that most of our 100 people said.

0:26:540:26:57

Yellow Submarine, 32, there, Roger. Help! 33.

0:26:570:27:00

We've seen all of these. Hey Jude, 43.

0:27:000:27:03

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:27:030:27:04

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

0:27:040:27:07

with a high score of 115, Sue and Jane,

0:27:070:27:09

I'm so sorry, it's you. Tough, that round, actually.

0:27:090:27:13

-Really tough.

-She should have thought...

-She's too young.

0:27:130:27:15

-Should have thought about it a bit longer.

-Well, still tough.

0:27:150:27:18

Anyway, but you've done very well. Brilliant performance last time.

0:27:180:27:21

A very strong performance in the first round.

0:27:210:27:23

I'm sorry you tripped up on this one, but it's been great

0:27:230:27:26

having you on the show. Thank you so much, Sue and Jane.

0:27:260:27:29

APPLAUSE

0:27:290:27:30

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

0:27:300:27:34

Well, congratulations, Roger and Lauren, Linda and Liz.

0:27:380:27:41

You're now one step closer to the final and a chance to play for our

0:27:410:27:44

jackpot, which currently stands at £1,000.

0:27:440:27:47

Well, we have made it to the head-to-head,

0:27:470:27:49

which means you can now confer.

0:27:490:27:51

In this round, the first pair to win two questions will be playing for

0:27:510:27:53

that jackpot in the final.

0:27:530:27:55

Well, you've seen off our two returning pairs.

0:27:550:27:57

Very well done indeed. Very impressive performance.

0:27:570:28:00

And neither of you have been here before,

0:28:000:28:02

so it should be very exciting and very close.

0:28:020:28:05

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

0:28:050:28:08

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

0:28:120:28:15

Yes, self explanatory, right?

0:28:200:28:22

Yeah, we're going to show you five pictures now of creatures that

0:28:220:28:25

have the word fish in their names, but are not actually fish.

0:28:250:28:28

We're also going to give you some of the letters of their names to

0:28:280:28:31

-help you out, but what are they, please?

-OK.

0:28:310:28:34

Let's reveal our five fish that aren't. Here they are.

0:28:340:28:37

We've got...

0:28:370:28:39

There we are.

0:29:040:29:06

Five fish that aren't fish.

0:29:060:29:08

Now, Roger and Lauren,

0:29:080:29:09

you are our low scorers, so you will go first.

0:29:090:29:11

INAUDIBLE WHISPERING

0:29:110:29:14

Shall we go for D?

0:29:140:29:15

I think it's a razor fish, you know,

0:29:150:29:17

the ones you get at the beach with the long shells.

0:29:170:29:19

Yeah. All right, do that.

0:29:190:29:22

We are going to go for D, razor fish.

0:29:220:29:24

Razor fish. Razor fish, D.

0:29:240:29:28

OK, now, Linda and Liz, over to you.

0:29:280:29:30

Do you want to talk us through the board?

0:29:300:29:32

-You can talk out loud if you like.

-Cuttlefish.

0:29:320:29:35

Do you want to go through the board?

0:29:350:29:37

We think A is cuttlefish and E is crayfish.

0:29:370:29:41

-We don't know the other two.

-No.

0:29:410:29:44

So, what will we just go for A?

0:29:440:29:46

-Cuttlefish.

-Yes.

0:29:460:29:47

OK, A, cuttlefish.

0:29:470:29:49

So, we have razor fish and we have cuttlefish.

0:29:490:29:51

Lauren and Roger said razor fish for D.

0:29:510:29:53

Let's see if that's right

0:29:530:29:55

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

0:29:550:29:59

It's right.

0:29:590:30:00

14.

0:30:060:30:07

Very well done indeed. Nice score there.

0:30:100:30:12

Linda and Liz, meanwhile, have gone for cuttlefish for A.

0:30:120:30:14

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

0:30:140:30:17

It's right.

0:30:200:30:21

37.

0:30:250:30:26

Very well done indeed.

0:30:280:30:29

Roger and Lauren, after one question, you are up 1-0.

0:30:290:30:31

Yeah, razor fish, a very, very good answer.

0:30:310:30:33

-There are funny looking, aren't they? Razor fish.

-They are.

0:30:330:30:36

-Do you think?

-I mean, is that like a sort of razor clamp?

0:30:360:30:39

-Yeah, if you like. Yeah, they are molluscs.

-Yeah.

0:30:390:30:43

Now, B is an insect.

0:30:430:30:44

And it's a silverfish.

0:30:440:30:47

Ah!

0:30:470:30:49

25 points for that. That's not real size, don't panic.

0:30:490:30:53

We will leave C for the moment.

0:30:530:30:55

E, I think you knew, was the crayfish.

0:30:550:30:57

Can I just tell you, when that picture first came out,

0:30:570:31:00

-I thought there were two crayfish there.

-52.

0:31:000:31:02

Yeah, you're thinking of the Kray twins.

0:31:020:31:04

Yeah.

0:31:040:31:06

Now, let's take a little look at C before we give away the answer.

0:31:090:31:13

Now, it's one of those ones where you can fill in some of them.

0:31:130:31:16

-So, it's fish. Clearly at the end there.

-Yeah.

0:31:160:31:19

And then the clue to the fact it's not a fish is what it is doing.

0:31:190:31:23

-Which is...

-Walking.

-Walking, yeah.

0:31:230:31:25

Careful. It's a pointless answer and it's a Mexican...

0:31:250:31:28

-Mexican walking fish!

-Walking fish.

0:31:280:31:30

You can't say it now. You can't do that. Mexican walking fish.

0:31:300:31:33

Wow! Look at that. I like its hair.

0:31:330:31:35

It's pretty cool.

0:31:350:31:37

Blowing in the wind there, look at that.

0:31:370:31:39

-It's a kind of salamander.

-There you go.

0:31:390:31:41

Thank you very much, Richard. Here comes your second question.

0:31:410:31:44

Now, Linda and Liz, you get to answer it first, but obviously you

0:31:440:31:47

have to win this one to stay in the game. So, good luck.

0:31:470:31:49

Our second question is all about...

0:31:490:31:50

-Aw!

-Richard.

0:31:530:31:54

Simply five clues or facts about Paddington Bear.

0:31:540:31:57

OK, let's reveal our five Paddington facts and here they are.

0:31:570:32:01

We have got...

0:32:010:32:02

I'll read those quickly again.

0:32:160:32:18

-Linda and Liz.

-What did he say there?

0:32:310:32:33

-What did he say for the writer?

-Well, it's his illustrator.

0:32:330:32:37

-It doesn't actually say writer.

-Do you want to risk that?

0:32:370:32:40

-I don't know.

-Because I think the other two will be quite high.

0:32:400:32:43

Oh, I know.

0:32:430:32:44

Right, we will go for the illustrator, Roger...

0:32:440:32:48

Roger...

0:32:480:32:49

Roger Bond.

0:32:490:32:50

Roger Bond, say Linda and Liz.

0:32:500:32:53

OK, now then, Roger and Lauren, what would you like to go for?

0:32:530:32:58

I think... Isn't the bottom one Peru?

0:32:580:33:02

-Shall we just go for that one?

-Yeah, Peru, yeah.

0:33:020:33:04

-We'll go for the bottom one as Peru, please.

-OK, Peru.

0:33:040:33:07

For the bottom one.

0:33:070:33:08

So, we have Roger Bond and we have Peru.

0:33:080:33:11

Linda and Liz have gone for Roger Bond. Let's see if that's right.

0:33:110:33:14

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

0:33:140:33:17

No, I'm afraid not Roger Bond.

0:33:200:33:23

Lauren and Roger, meanwhile, have gone for Peru.

0:33:230:33:25

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

0:33:250:33:28

said Peru. It just has to be right at this stage

0:33:280:33:30

and you will win the point.

0:33:300:33:32

It is right.

0:33:340:33:35

Look at that, 63.

0:33:370:33:39

Very well done indeed. 63.

0:33:390:33:41

But, crucially, it was right. And it means...

0:33:410:33:43

Very well done, Roger and Lauren, after only two questions you're

0:33:430:33:46

straight through to the final. 2-0.

0:33:460:33:48

Yeah, very well played.

0:33:480:33:50

Yeah, not Roger Bond, I'm afraid.

0:33:500:33:52

The original writer of the Paddington books was Michael Bond.

0:33:520:33:55

-Yes.

-And you're playing against Roger.

0:33:550:33:57

I think somewhere between the two of those is where you got confused.

0:33:570:34:00

The illustrator is actually Peggy Fortnum.

0:34:000:34:02

So, very well done if you said that at home.

0:34:020:34:04

That would have scored you 8 points.

0:34:040:34:06

The name of the style of coat...

0:34:060:34:08

-It's a duffle.

-A duffle coat.

0:34:080:34:10

That would have scored 74.

0:34:100:34:12

The surname of the family who adopted him?

0:34:120:34:14

-Brown.

-Brown, yes.

0:34:140:34:16

37 points for that. Now, the name of the person who first designed the

0:34:160:34:19

Paddington Bear soft toy. People might remember who she is...

0:34:190:34:22

-Yeah.

-What is her name? Now, she's famously...

0:34:220:34:24

Her surname I know.

0:34:240:34:25

Yeah, cos she is Jeremy Clarkson's mother.

0:34:250:34:28

Yeah, well, I was going to say Clarkson.

0:34:280:34:30

-We won't accept Mrs Clarkson, I'm afraid.

-Oh, no!

0:34:300:34:33

It begins with S.

0:34:330:34:35

Sue Clarkson? Not Sue.

0:34:350:34:37

-What are you saying?

-Sarah?

0:34:370:34:40

-Sheila?

-Not Sheila.

-Sandra.

0:34:400:34:42

Not Sandra. This is fun. We should just do this.

0:34:420:34:45

-Shula! Shula Clarkson.

-No.

0:34:450:34:47

-Not Suzanne.

-Sarah.

-What did we say here?

0:34:470:34:50

-Shirley.

-Shirley Clarkson is the right answer.

0:34:500:34:52

Oh, Mrs Clarkson, I'm sorry.

0:34:520:34:54

-Shirley Clarkson.

-A pointless answer. Well done.

0:34:540:34:57

Look at that.

0:34:570:34:58

So, £250 to the gentleman in the audience there. Very well done.

0:34:580:35:01

There we are.

0:35:010:35:02

Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:35:020:35:05

So, the pair leaving us at the end of the head-to-head round,

0:35:050:35:07

I'm afraid to say, it's Linda and Liz.

0:35:070:35:09

However, the good news is, we get to see you again next time.

0:35:090:35:11

And we look forward to that very much. In the meantime,

0:35:110:35:13

thank you so much. Linda and Liz, great performance on the show.

0:35:130:35:16

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:35:160:35:18

But, for Roger and Lauren, it's now time for our Pointless final.

0:35:180:35:22

Well, congratulations, Roger and Lauren.

0:35:250:35:28

You have fought off all the competition

0:35:280:35:30

and you have won our coveted Pointless trophy.

0:35:300:35:33

You now have a chance to win our Pointless jackpot.

0:35:390:35:41

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

0:35:410:35:45

Well, a fantastic performance.

0:35:450:35:48

Very, very strong indeed.

0:35:480:35:50

I think that first round was the one that slightly shook everyone.

0:35:500:35:52

-The Prime Ministers' round, wasn't it?

-It was terrifying.

0:35:520:35:55

You came through smiling, flying colours. Well, as always,

0:35:550:35:58

you get to choose your category from

0:35:580:36:00

the four that we put up on the board.

0:36:000:36:01

Fingers crossed there's something up there you like the look of.

0:36:010:36:04

Let's see what today's selection looks like. We have got...

0:36:040:36:07

-It's up to you, you choose.

-Really tempted by Latin American Singers.

0:36:150:36:18

Or Land Of 'Oz,' but that could be Australia, or Wizard of Oz.

0:36:190:36:23

Could be, could be Wizard of Oz, could be Land Of 'Oz'

0:36:230:36:25

-could be Australia.

-How good are you at 1975?

0:36:250:36:28

-You just go for what you want, Latin American Singers.

-No pressure, then.

0:36:280:36:32

-Latin American Singers, please.

-Latin American Singers it is.

0:36:320:36:35

OK, very, very best of luck.

0:36:350:36:37

We're looking for any UK top 40 singles up to April 2016

0:36:370:36:41

by any of the following three, please. We're looking for...

0:36:410:36:45

So, according to officialcharts.com,

0:36:530:36:55

-any UK top 40 hits by any of those three, very best of luck.

-OK.

0:36:550:36:59

Now, as always,

0:36:590:37:01

you've got up to one minute to come up with three answers.

0:37:010:37:04

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

0:37:040:37:07

-to be pointless. Are you ready?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:37:070:37:10

Let's put 60 seconds up on the clock. There they are.

0:37:100:37:12

-Your time starts now.

-Do you know any Gloria Estefan songs?

0:37:120:37:15

-I do but I can't remember what they are.

-OK.

0:37:150:37:17

What about Ricky Martin or Shakira?

0:37:170:37:20

You know them more than me.

0:37:200:37:22

The only ones I know...

0:37:220:37:24

are Ricky Martin, Livin' La Vida Loca. And...

0:37:240:37:27

What was the one he done...

0:37:300:37:32

-Peter Kay did it.

-I don't think so.

0:37:330:37:37

Shakira is, like...

0:37:370:37:39

-..Hips Don't Lie, or something.

-Something like that.

0:37:400:37:43

Can you not think of any Gloria Estefan at all?

0:37:430:37:45

No, not Gloria Estefan.

0:37:450:37:47

SHE SIGHS

0:37:470:37:48

Probably know all of them if you played them to me.

0:37:480:37:51

I've got a Ricky Martin one in my head.

0:37:510:37:54

-And I can only remember a line of it. Um...

-Sing it.

0:37:540:37:58

Something like, "She dances in the summer rain."

0:38:000:38:03

10 seconds left.

0:38:030:38:04

No, that's not right.

0:38:050:38:07

-What about...Shakira?

-I don't really know.

0:38:070:38:10

THEY TALK INDISTINCTLY

0:38:100:38:13

OK, I'm afraid that is your time up.

0:38:130:38:15

I'm sorry, that minute is never long enough.

0:38:150:38:17

What answers can you give me?

0:38:170:38:19

And if you say which category you're answering, that'd be great.

0:38:190:38:22

-Livin' La Vida Loca for Ricky Martin.

-OK, Living Live...

0:38:220:38:25

-Livin' La Vida Loca, yeah.

-She Wolf by Shakira.

-She Wolf.

0:38:250:38:30

-And Hips Don't Lie by Shakira.

-Hips Don't Lie. OK.

0:38:300:38:34

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

0:38:340:38:37

-do you think?

-She Wolf by Shakira.

-She Wolf goes last.

0:38:370:38:39

-Least likely to be pointless?

-Livin' La Vida Loca.

0:38:390:38:41

Livin' La Vida Loca goes first.

0:38:410:38:43

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

0:38:430:38:45

then, and here they are.

0:38:450:38:46

We have got Livin' La Vida Loca, Hips Don't Lie, She Wolf.

0:38:460:38:51

Well, very, very best of luck. Three good answers on the board there.

0:38:510:38:54

If one of these is pointless and wins you that jackpot,

0:38:540:38:56

-what would you like to do with it? Roger, you first.

-Well...

0:38:560:39:00

There's a certain charity that helps Lauren,

0:39:000:39:03

and we're going to give half to that.

0:39:030:39:06

And then I've got my 50th wedding anniversary coming up,

0:39:060:39:09

-next year, actually...

-Oh, congratulations!

-..in March.

0:39:090:39:13

-So, we'll do something...

-Something special.

-Yeah.

0:39:130:39:16

Very good. Congratulations. Lauren, how about you?

0:39:160:39:19

As Grandad said, we're going to donate some to charity.

0:39:190:39:22

And then the other bit will either be put towards

0:39:220:39:25

a trip to Japan or some funky wheel covers for my sweet ride.

0:39:250:39:29

Very good indeed. Best of luck.

0:39:290:39:31

Let's hope one of these answers wins that jackpot for you.

0:39:310:39:34

Your first answer was Livin' La Vida Loca.

0:39:340:39:36

In this case, we were looking for Ricky Martin UK top 40 singles.

0:39:360:39:39

Only one of these answers has to be pointless for you to win

0:39:390:39:42

the jackpot, so let's find out, for £1,000,

0:39:420:39:44

how many people said Livin' La Vida Loca.

0:39:440:39:46

It's right.

0:39:490:39:50

If this goes all the way down to zero,

0:39:510:39:53

you could leave straightaway with a cheque for £1,000.

0:39:530:39:56

Down it goes through the... Oh. Just into the 30s there.

0:39:560:39:59

-30 for Livin' La Vida Loca. Not a bad score.

-No.

0:40:000:40:05

But we move on to your next answer. Sadly, not a pointless answer there.

0:40:050:40:08

Hips Don't Lie.

0:40:080:40:10

In this case, we were looking for Shakira UK top 40 singles.

0:40:100:40:13

If this is right and if it's pointless, it'll win you £1,000.

0:40:130:40:16

How many people said Hips Don't Lie?

0:40:160:40:18

Well, it's right, too. Hips Don't Lie taking us down through the 60s.

0:40:210:40:26

Your first answer, Livin' La Vida Loca took us to 30.

0:40:260:40:28

Hips Don't Lie now takes us into the 30s...

0:40:280:40:30

to 35.

0:40:300:40:32

OK. Only one more shot at today's jackpot.

0:40:360:40:38

Everything is now riding on your third and final answer,

0:40:380:40:41

which is She Wolf. Again, this is a Shakira UK top 40 single.

0:40:410:40:46

We have to hope nobody mentioned it.

0:40:460:40:48

If it is pointless, it'll win you £1,000.

0:40:480:40:50

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

0:40:500:40:53

Well, it's your third correct answer.

0:40:560:40:58

Your first answer, Livin' La Vida Loca, took us down to 30.

0:40:580:41:00

Your second answer, Hips Don't Lie, took us down to 35.

0:41:000:41:03

She Wolf passes 35 and 30. Down it goes into the teens.

0:41:030:41:05

Still going down, still in single figures,

0:41:050:41:07

down it goes to 6.

0:41:070:41:09

Well, listen, three very good answers there.

0:41:140:41:16

She Wolf, a fantastic low score, single-figure score there.

0:41:160:41:19

Sadly, though,

0:41:190:41:20

we only accept pointless answers in this last round.

0:41:200:41:23

I'm afraid you didn't find that pointless answer that would have won

0:41:230:41:25

you that jackpot of £1,000, so that will roll over onto the next show.

0:41:250:41:29

But what a performance to be proud of across the whole show.

0:41:290:41:32

It's been absolutely fantastic.

0:41:320:41:33

And you get to take home a Pointless trophy,

0:41:330:41:35

so very, very well done indeed.

0:41:350:41:37

It's been lovely having you, Roger and Lauren!

0:41:370:41:39

Yes, it's been a real pleasure. Thank you so much for joining us.

0:41:440:41:46

I'm going to take you through the pointless answers here and,

0:41:460:41:49

hopefully, you don't recognise any of them. We will start with Shakira.

0:41:490:41:52

..and Illegal. They were the five pointless answers there.

0:41:560:41:58

Very well done if you said any of those.

0:41:580:42:01

Ricky Martin, also five pointless answers here.

0:42:010:42:03

..and The Cup Of Life. That's nice, isn't it?

0:42:090:42:12

You could Shake Your Bon-Bon in a Cup Of Life,

0:42:120:42:14

as long as it's got a lid. Make sure the lid is secure

0:42:140:42:16

if you're going to Shake Your Bon-Bon in your Cup Of Life.

0:42:160:42:19

Now, there's lots and lots of Gloria Estefan pointless answers.

0:42:190:42:23

A couple of top 10 singles here.

0:42:230:42:25

Everything apart from Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, Dr Beat,

0:42:280:42:31

Can't Stay Away From You, Oye Mi Canto - Oi! Mi Canto!

0:42:310:42:34

And..and Doctor Pressure.

0:42:340:42:37

Everything else was a pointless answer.

0:42:370:42:39

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

0:42:390:42:41

-and unlucky in the studio.

-Thank you very much indeed, Richard.

0:42:410:42:44

Now, Roger and Lauren, thank you so much for joining us.

0:42:440:42:46

Very sadly, they didn't win the jackpot today which means

0:42:460:42:49

it rolls over to the next show, when we will be playing for £2,000.

0:42:490:42:53

Join us next time. See if someone can win it. Meanwhile,

0:42:570:43:00

-it's goodbye from Richard...

-Goodbye.

0:43:000:43:02

..and it's goodbye from me, goodbye.

0:43:020:43:03
