Hello. I'm Mark Williams and welcome to The Link,

0:00:170:00:20

where knowing the answers is only half the battle.

0:00:200:00:23

To win this game, you have to find the link between the answers.

0:00:230:00:26

Three teams are hoping to make the right connections,

0:00:260:00:29

but only one of them can be in today's final.

0:00:290:00:32

Let's see who's proficient, prepared and primed.

0:00:320:00:36

My name is Sue. I'm a civil servant and this is my boyfriend.

0:00:400:00:44

My name is Rob. I am also a civil servant and we come from the Wirral.

0:00:440:00:48

APPLAUSE

0:00:480:00:49

How did you meet?

0:00:510:00:52

-We met online.

-Right.

0:00:520:00:54

There's a little bit more to it than that,

0:00:540:00:56

-but shall we just say we met online?

-We met online.

0:00:560:00:59

What's the other bit, then?

0:00:590:01:01

LAUGHTER

0:01:010:01:02

Well, we quickly realised

0:01:020:01:04

that we actually worked in the same building

0:01:040:01:07

and Rob worked on the floor below me.

0:01:070:01:10

That's true.

0:01:100:01:11

So, it took an online meeting for you to connect over, what,

0:01:110:01:15

eight foot vertically?

0:01:150:01:18

LAUGHTER

0:01:180:01:19

Sue and Rob, welcome.

0:01:190:01:20

Thank you.

0:01:200:01:21

Matthew and Paddy, introduce yourselves, please.

0:01:210:01:24

I'm Matthew. I'm a primary school teacher and this is my best mate.

0:01:240:01:28

My name's Paddy. I'm a doctor

0:01:280:01:29

and we're both from County Armagh in Northern Ireland.

0:01:290:01:32

APPLAUSE

0:01:320:01:33

I have to ask you this, can I just say bellybutton fluff?

0:01:350:01:38

That was...

0:01:380:01:39

That was a university thing.

0:01:390:01:41

I decided it would be a good idea in first year

0:01:410:01:43

to collect a jar of bellybutton fluff.

0:01:430:01:47

Right.

0:01:470:01:48

How big's the jar?

0:01:480:01:50

Didn't get too far. Didn't get too far.

0:01:500:01:52

We were both single back then as well.

0:01:520:01:55

-OK.

-As you can imagine.

0:01:550:01:56

So, your friendship is based around bellybutton fluff

0:01:560:02:00

and you're a teacher and a doctor?

0:02:000:02:02

Yes. Match made in heaven.

0:02:020:02:03

Fantastic. Matthew and Paddy, welcome.

0:02:030:02:07

Thank you.

0:02:070:02:08

Lyanne and Terence, introduce yourselves.

0:02:080:02:11

My name's Lyanne. I'm a dancer and model and this is my boyfriend.

0:02:110:02:14

I'm Terence. I'm an interior designer

0:02:140:02:15

and we're both from London.

0:02:150:02:17

APPLAUSE

0:02:170:02:18

Right.

0:02:180:02:19

Lyanne, tell us about travel.

0:02:200:02:23

Basically, with my job, my career, I went to New York,

0:02:240:02:29

and then straight after that I went to China for a year.

0:02:290:02:32

How's your Chinese? Do you speak Mandarin?

0:02:320:02:35

Yi dian dian.

0:02:350:02:36

Yeah. Shi-shi.

0:02:360:02:37

And, Terence, you're connected with travel?

0:02:380:02:41

I've worked on quite a lot of hotels, like luxury hotels,

0:02:410:02:44

in a lot of other countries,

0:02:440:02:46

but I've never actually been to see them, so...

0:02:460:02:48

So, I just sit in an office and design them.

0:02:480:02:50

You design hotels? It's a marriage made in heaven.

0:02:500:02:53

Lyanne and Terence, welcome.

0:02:540:02:56

Thank you.

0:02:560:02:57

Welcome, all. Now pay attention.

0:02:570:02:59

Here are six cash pods

0:02:590:03:01

containing amounts ranging from £125 to £2,000.

0:03:010:03:04

The more cash in the pod, the more links there are holding it.

0:03:040:03:08

What you have to do is to cut the links holding the pods

0:03:080:03:12

until they drop down into your bank.

0:03:120:03:14

And here's how you cut the links...

0:03:140:03:16

I'm going to ask you four questions

0:03:160:03:19

and you have to work out what links the answers.

0:03:190:03:21

If you can guess the link from the first answer alone,

0:03:210:03:25

you'll be able to cut four of those links.

0:03:250:03:27

If you spot it after the second answer,

0:03:270:03:29

you can cut three links.

0:03:290:03:31

Then two.

0:03:310:03:32

Then one.

0:03:320:03:33

And of course, the link here is?

0:03:390:03:41

ALL: TV naturalists.

0:03:410:03:42

Brilliant.

0:03:420:03:43

Let's cut that link.

0:03:450:03:46

APPLAUSE

0:03:480:03:50

You need to bank as much cash as you can

0:03:500:03:52

because the team with the least amount of money

0:03:520:03:54

at the end of this round will be going home.

0:03:540:03:58

Let's play The Link.

0:03:580:03:59

APPLAUSE

0:04:000:04:01

Round one, stand by. Here's your first question.

0:04:020:04:05

For four links...

0:04:050:04:07

What is the playing surface called

0:04:070:04:10

that a basketball match is played on?

0:04:100:04:12

-Paddy.

-A court.

0:04:120:04:13

Is correct.

0:04:130:04:14

There's your first link. What's the clue?

0:04:160:04:18

-Words that...

-Could it be words that come before house?

0:04:180:04:21

-Or words that come before room, maybe? Courtroom?

-Yeah.

0:04:210:04:24

-I'm easy with either. I'll let you go.

-We'll give that a go?

0:04:250:04:27

-Yeah.

-Words that come before room.

0:04:270:04:30

Is the link room?

0:04:300:04:31

No.

0:04:330:04:34

Everyone, back in play. Stand by for three links...

0:04:340:04:37

In the game of chess,

0:04:370:04:39

0:04:390:04:42

-Paddy.

-A knight.

0:04:430:04:44

Correct.

0:04:440:04:45

I'm thinking sort of castles.

0:04:480:04:50

Yeah.

0:04:500:04:51

Maybe, like, a medieval theme. Not quite sure.

0:04:510:04:55

Medieval-like, yeah.

0:04:550:04:56

Do you want to go for it, Matthew?

0:04:560:04:58

Medieval castles?

0:04:580:05:00

0:05:000:05:02

On what object are the cards to be placed?

0:05:100:05:13

-Paddy?

-On the table?

0:05:140:05:16

Table's correct.

0:05:160:05:17

Three clues. What's the link?

0:05:200:05:21

Trying to work this out, so court, knight and table.

0:05:210:05:24

Can you think of any words that link them?

0:05:240:05:26

Cloth?

0:05:260:05:27

-Cloth court? Knight cloth?

-What would you call a judge's wig?

0:05:280:05:31

But would it link the other ones?

0:05:310:05:34

Cloth?

0:05:340:05:35

Is the link cloth?

0:05:350:05:36

0:05:470:05:48

Arthur is correct.

0:05:480:05:49

0:05:570:05:58

Is the link Camelot?

0:05:580:05:59

Yep. Good.

0:06:010:06:03

You got that on the last clue, which means you can cut one link.

0:06:040:06:08

Now, think very carefully about whether you want to cut a link

0:06:080:06:12

on smaller values for a quick-cash fix

0:06:120:06:14

or if you snip away on one of those higher-value pods.

0:06:140:06:18

I think we'd like to go for the 125.

0:06:180:06:21

Right. Let's cut that link.

0:06:210:06:22

APPLAUSE

0:06:260:06:28

0:07:340:07:35

made from whole fruit and sugar is a jam.

0:07:350:07:38

What's the link?

0:07:410:07:43

I'm thinking maybe swiss roll.

0:07:430:07:44

Jam on a swiss roll, it's a type of cake, originates in Switzerland.

0:07:440:07:48

Swiss roll?

0:07:480:07:49

Is the link swiss roll?

0:08:390:08:41

who was a police officer and not a private detective.

0:09:550:09:59

You got it on the third clue, which means you can cut two links.

"Oh! £1,000, please."

0:11:290:11:31

OK, let's do that, then.

-Rob.

0:12:220:12:23

Juliet's correct.

0:12:230:12:24

Characters in tragedies?

0:12:260:12:28

Well, they're in the same one, aren't they?

0:12:280:12:30

So we might as well go for characters in that particular tragedy.

0:12:300:12:33

-Shall we just say...?

-No, because...

0:12:330:12:35

OK, you got that on the third clue,

0:24:580:25:00

which means you can cut two links.

0:25:000:25:02

Shall we just do that?

0:25:020:25:03

Right. You're all back in play.

0:25:050:25:06

Stand by for four links...

0:25:060:25:09

Which Devon town was the birthplace of author

0:25:100:25:13

Agatha Christie?

0:25:130:25:14

Terence.

0:25:140:25:15

Torquay.

0:25:150:25:17

Is correct.

0:25:170:25:18

There we go. Come on, Terence.

0:25:200:25:22

He came out of the woods there, didn't he?

0:25:250:25:28

Right, Terence...

0:25:290:25:30

What's the link?

0:25:300:25:31

British beaches or something? British holiday destinations?

0:25:310:25:34

Yeah, yeah.

0:25:340:25:36

Summer British holiday destinations.

0:25:360:25:39

Is the link summer British holiday destinations?

0:25:390:25:41

No.

0:25:430:25:44

OK, everyone's back in play.

0:25:440:25:46

Stand by for three links...

0:25:460:25:48

The British actor and director Timothy West

0:25:480:25:49

is married to which...

0:25:490:25:51

-Rob.

-Prunella Scales.

0:25:520:25:54

..to which well-known TV actress?

0:25:540:25:56

Prunella Scales is correct.

0:25:560:25:58

What's the link?

0:25:590:26:00

-Yeah, it's definitely Fawlty Towers.

-Is the link Fawlty Towers?

0:26:000:26:03

APPLAUSE

0:26:050:26:06

The remaining clues were...

0:26:060:26:08

Manuel, the hapless Spanish waiter.

0:26:120:26:15

Basil, the proprietor.

0:26:150:26:16

Prunella Scales, his wife.

0:26:160:26:18

And the hotel was in Torquay.

0:26:180:26:19

Sue and Rob, you got that on the second clue,

0:26:190:26:21

which means you could cut three links.

0:26:210:26:25

However, you don't need to. Let's cut that link.

0:26:250:26:28

APPLAUSE

0:26:300:26:31

Which means...

0:26:310:26:33

Sue and Rob, with £4,375,

0:26:330:26:36

are through to the next round,

0:26:360:26:38

Matthew and Paddy, with £300, are similarly through to the next round.

0:26:380:26:42

And, Lyanne and Terence, you ain't!

0:26:420:26:46

You're enthusiastic. You didn't disagree.

0:26:470:26:49

So, those are two positives.

0:26:490:26:51

Lyanne and Terence,

0:26:510:26:52

thanks for playing The Link. Bye-bye.

0:26:520:26:54

-Thank you.

-Bye!

-Cheerio.

0:26:540:26:56

Sue and Rob, so far, you've banked £4,375.

0:26:590:27:03

Matthew and Paddy, you've banked £300.

0:27:030:27:06

That money is now in these two cash pods...

0:27:060:27:09

..each held by seven links.

0:27:100:27:12

The first team to cut all the links and release their cash pod

0:27:120:27:15

takes that money through to the final round.

0:27:150:27:18

The other team will be out.

0:27:180:27:19

And now you can be as brave or cautious as you like,

0:27:190:27:22

because you decide how many links you want to try to cut.

0:27:220:27:25

I'm going to ask you to identify a person,

0:27:250:27:28

place or thing from a series of clues

0:27:280:27:31

and you tell me whether you want to play for

0:27:310:27:33

one, two, three or four links.

0:27:330:27:35

But the more links you play for, the fewer clues you'll receive.

0:27:350:27:39

If you do not spot the link,

0:27:390:27:41

your opponents will see all the clues

0:27:410:27:43

for the chance to cut a single link from their cash pod.

0:27:430:27:47

Sue and Rob, you've brought the most money through to this round,

0:27:470:27:50

so you get to decide if you want to play first or second.

0:27:500:27:53

See how it's done?

0:27:530:27:55

Yeah. Yeah. Can we play second, please?

0:27:550:27:58

Let's play.

0:27:580:27:59

Stand by. Round two.

0:28:010:28:02

The first question is asking Matthew and Paddy...

0:28:020:28:06

How many links would you like to play for?

0:28:080:28:10

-Two?

-I think we'll go for two.

0:28:100:28:12

We'll play it relatively safe, please.

0:28:120:28:14

For two links... Who am I? Here are your clues...

0:28:140:28:17

Who am I?

0:28:350:28:36

I've never seen 1984.

0:28:360:28:38

Can you think of anyone who famously served in the Royal Air Force?

0:28:390:28:42

-An actor?

-All I can think of is he's...

0:28:420:28:45

I'm guessing he's British, if he...

0:28:450:28:46

Yeah, must be.

0:28:460:28:48

Famous British, maybe one of those, like, RADA-famous people.

0:28:480:28:51

-Yeah, that's probably...

-Old English.

0:28:520:28:54

-That's probably a decent guess.

-Can we go for Michael Caine?

0:28:540:28:57

Am I Michael Caine?

0:28:570:28:58

No.

0:28:590:29:00

Sue and Rob, you have a chance to nick a link.

0:29:000:29:03

You will see the remaining clue.

0:29:030:29:05

I narrated Jeff Wayne's War Of The Worlds. Who am I?

0:29:070:29:10

Richard Burton.

0:29:100:29:11

Richard Burton.

0:29:110:29:12

Am I Richard Burton?

0:29:120:29:13

Yep.

0:29:160:29:17

Let's cut the link that you have nicked.

0:29:190:29:22

Leaving six.

0:29:230:29:24

And now it's your turn.

0:29:240:29:26

Your question will be asking...

0:29:260:29:27

How many links would you like to try for?

0:29:300:29:32

-Do you want to go for two or...?

-I think that's a good idea.

0:29:320:29:34

We'd like to play for two links, please.

0:29:340:29:36

For two links, who am I?

0:29:360:29:37

Here are your clues...

0:29:370:29:38

-Who am I?

-Halle... What is it?

-Halle Berry.

0:29:590:30:01

Halle Berry.

0:30:010:30:02

Am I Halle Berry?

0:30:020:30:03

APPLAUSE

0:30:040:30:06

The remaining clue was...

0:30:060:30:07

Let's cut those links.

0:30:110:30:13

Leaving four.

0:30:160:30:18

Matthew and Paddy, your turn.

0:30:180:30:19

Your question will be asking...

0:30:190:30:21

How many links do you want to play for?

0:30:240:30:26

-We'll go for three?

-Go for three, yeah.

0:30:260:30:28

Yeah, might as well. Three, please.

0:30:280:30:29

For three links,

0:30:290:30:31

here are your clues. What am I?

0:30:310:30:33

What am I?

0:30:470:30:48

-I'm not sure. Is anything jumping out at you?

-No.

0:30:490:30:52

-Celtic festival.

-Not at all.

0:30:520:30:53

"I'm known for the masks and costumes worn

0:30:530:30:56

"in an attempt to mimic or appease evil spirits."

0:30:560:30:59

-Some kind of...

-Give us an answer.

0:30:590:31:01

-Some kind of person? Erm...

-It's what?

0:31:010:31:03

Erm...

0:31:040:31:06

-You are running out of time.

-Something Celtic?

0:31:060:31:08

Irish, Scottish, Welsh...

0:31:080:31:10

Have a guess.

0:31:100:31:11

We'll go for...

0:31:110:31:12

No. You are out of time.

0:31:160:31:17

Sue and Rob, you have a chance to nick a link.

0:31:170:31:20

You'll see the remaining two clues, which are...

0:31:200:31:22

What am I?

0:31:310:31:32

-Halloween.

-Am I Halloween?

0:31:320:31:35

APPLAUSE

0:31:360:31:37

So, you nicked a link. Let's cut that.

0:31:390:31:41

Leaving three links and now it's your turn.

0:31:420:31:44

Your question will be asking...

0:31:440:31:46

How many links would you like to play for?

0:31:480:31:51

-Play safe, go for two?

-Yeah.

0:31:510:31:52

OK.

0:31:520:31:54

-Yeah.

-Yeah?

0:31:540:31:55

We'll go for two links, please.

0:31:550:31:56

Right. For two links, here are your clues. What am I?

0:31:560:31:59

Ah... Is it the Forth Bridge?

0:32:180:32:20

Oh, maybe. Yeah, yeah.

0:32:200:32:21

Because that's always needing painting, doesn't it?

0:32:210:32:24

Yeah. Is it the Forth Bridge?

0:32:240:32:26

Am I the Forth Bridge?

0:32:260:32:28

APPLAUSE

0:32:280:32:29

Yeah. The remaining clue was...

0:32:300:32:31

Well done. Let's cut those two links.

0:32:340:32:37

Leaving one.

0:32:400:32:42

Matthew and Paddy, your turn. Your question will be asking...

0:32:420:32:45

You have seven links still remaining.

0:32:470:32:50

How many links would like to play for?

0:32:500:32:52

Go for three?

0:32:520:32:54

Go for three and we'll maybe get one right

0:32:540:32:56

and go home with our head held high.

0:32:560:32:58

LAUGHTER

0:32:580:32:59

For three links. What am I? Here are your clues...

0:32:590:33:02

Hovercraft.

0:33:130:33:14

Possibly, yeah. That's actually...

0:33:140:33:16

Don't know how old they are, but...

0:33:160:33:18

Hovercraft?

0:33:190:33:20

Am I a hovercraft?

0:33:200:33:22

APPLAUSE

0:33:230:33:25

Sure I am.

0:33:250:33:26

The remaining clues were...

0:33:270:33:28

Hovercraft. Right, let's cut those links.

0:33:350:33:38

Sue and Rob, your turn next.

0:33:420:33:44

Your question will be asking...

0:33:440:33:47

How many links would you like to play for?

0:33:480:33:51

-Just the one.

-Just the one, please.

0:33:510:33:53

For one link, here are your clues.

0:33:530:33:55

What am I?

0:33:550:33:56

What am I?

0:34:190:34:20

It must be Tasmania. That's the only logical conclusion.

0:34:200:34:22

-Yeah, yeah.

-Shall we go with Tasmania?

0:34:220:34:24

Yep. Tasmania.

0:34:240:34:27

Am I Tasmania?

0:34:270:34:28

No.

0:34:300:34:31

Matthew and Paddy, do you know?

0:34:320:34:33

We were there a few years ago.

0:34:330:34:35

What am I?

0:34:350:34:36

A few dingoes took some sticks from us. Is it Fraser Island?

0:34:360:34:40

Am I Fraser Island?

0:34:400:34:42

-APPLAUSE

-Whoa!

0:34:430:34:44

Right. OK, then. You've nicked a link. Let's remove it.

0:34:470:34:50

And it's now your turn.

0:34:520:34:53

Your question will be asking...

0:34:530:34:55

How many links would you like to play for?

0:34:580:34:59

-I think it's got to be a smash-and-grab.

-Yeah.

0:34:590:35:02

-So, head held high for a smash-and-grab?

-Yeah.

-Yep.

0:35:020:35:05

I think Sue and Rob are too good.

0:35:050:35:07

-I think we're going to have to get this right.

-Let's go for three.

0:35:070:35:10

-You're going for three.

-Yes, please.

0:35:100:35:12

For three links, who am I?

0:35:120:35:14

Here are your clues...

0:35:140:35:15

Who am I?

0:35:260:35:27

I'm trying to think of a clan.

0:35:270:35:28

It's not going to be any of the big five.

0:35:280:35:30

Lions and stuff are more rare.

0:35:300:35:32

I know things like, maybe, buffalo or something like that.

0:35:320:35:36

-Hyena.

-Hyenas is actually good.

0:35:360:35:37

In The Jungle Book, I think hyenas are female...

0:35:370:35:41

I'm tempted...

0:35:410:35:43

We're not sure.

0:35:430:35:44

We're going to go for hyena.

0:35:440:35:46

Am I a hyena?

0:35:460:35:48

APPLAUSE

0:35:490:35:50

Cracking. Well done. Well done.

0:35:560:35:58

That was amazing.

0:36:070:36:09

Twice you've turned the tables there.

0:36:090:36:12

So, where did hyena come from?

0:36:120:36:13

I remember seeing them in The Lion King eating...

0:36:130:36:16

LAUGHTER

0:36:160:36:17

..eating meat.

0:36:170:36:18

OK. So, it is all about Walt Disney, is it?

0:36:180:36:20

Yeah.

0:36:200:36:21

Yeah, but what you did do was you said, "Not the big five."

0:36:210:36:25

So, that was great teamwork, where you supported each other on that.

0:36:250:36:28

In my opinion.

0:36:280:36:29

Let's remove those links...

0:36:290:36:31

And there it goes.

0:36:360:36:37

APPLAUSE

0:36:370:36:38

And the laughter...

0:36:380:36:39

..and millions of African carnivores following it.

0:36:410:36:44

£300. Matthew and Paddy,

0:36:440:36:46

you're through to the final round and that cash goes with you.

0:36:460:36:49

Which means, unfortunately, Sue and Rob,

0:36:490:36:51

who have nursed your £4,375 all this way,

0:36:510:36:56

you're going home.

0:36:560:36:57

You can't beat that, can you? It's inspired.

0:36:570:37:00

-You played brilliantly, though.

-Thank you.

0:37:000:37:02

Which is great.

0:37:020:37:03

-Sue and Rob, thank you very much for playing The Link.

-Thank you.

0:37:030:37:06

It's time to say goodbye.

0:37:060:37:08

-Goodbye.

-Thank you.

0:37:080:37:09

APPLAUSE

0:37:090:37:10

Matthew and Paddy, you are today's finalists.

0:37:120:37:15

-How are you feeling?

-Surprised!

-Surprised to be here.

0:37:150:37:18

Yeah.

0:37:180:37:19

And you brought £300 through to the super-link round,

0:37:190:37:22

to which we are going to add £2,000.

0:37:220:37:25

So, today, you are playing for £2,300.

0:37:260:37:28

APPLAUSE

0:37:280:37:29

What are you going to with that?

0:37:330:37:34

I'd like to buy Super Bowl tickets for me and my dad

0:37:340:37:36

to go over to Phoenix this year to go to the Super Bowl.

0:37:360:37:40

-Matthew?

-Save it.

0:37:400:37:41

Put it away somewhere.

0:37:410:37:43

Or chip in and help Paddy get to the Super Bowl with his dad.

0:37:430:37:45

AUDIENCE: Aw...!

0:37:450:37:47

-And you could go as well, maybe?

-I will.

0:37:470:37:49

Paddy, would that be acceptable?

0:37:490:37:51

Oh, more than welcome. More than welcome.

0:37:510:37:53

OK, so, we're looking for three tickets to the Super Bowl.

0:37:530:37:56

Right, to take that money home,

0:37:560:37:57

you have just 60 seconds to find six super-links.

0:37:570:38:00

At each level,

0:38:000:38:02

you will need to identify the link between ten clues.

0:38:020:38:05

As soon as you think you know the answer,

0:38:050:38:07

buzz and we'll stop the clock.

0:38:070:38:09

If you're right, you can take that money home.

0:38:090:38:11

But, choose to play on

0:38:110:38:13

and your team-mate will step forward to tackle the next super-link.

0:38:130:38:16

But, if you're wrong, play stays with you.

0:38:160:38:19

We will restart the clock and you will face a new set of clues.

0:38:190:38:23

If you run out of time, you leave with nothing.

0:38:230:38:25

So, who's going to be the first to play?

0:38:260:38:29

We're going to use the fairest method

0:38:290:38:30

and use a British pound sterling and give it a flip.

0:38:300:38:33

-Go on, then...

-Tails never fails.

0:38:330:38:35

Tails.

0:38:370:38:38

Does that mean me? Do I get to choose?

0:38:380:38:40

Whatever you want, man.

0:38:400:38:41

I'll go. I'll go, get it out the way.

0:38:410:38:43

LAUGHTER

0:38:430:38:44

Are you going first?

0:38:440:38:45

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:38:450:38:46

Matthew, you're on your own. There is no conferring.

0:38:460:38:49

The clock will start when you see the first clue.

0:38:490:38:52

-Are you ready?

-Yeah.

0:38:520:38:53

BUZZER

0:39:060:39:07

Oil.

0:39:070:39:09

Is the link oil?

0:39:090:39:10

Good.

0:39:110:39:12

APPLAUSE

0:39:120:39:13

The remaining clues were...

0:39:130:39:15

That puts you on...
