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.

0:00:230:00:27

Three teams are hoping to make the right connections,

0:00:270:00:29

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

0:00:290:00:33

Let's see who's got that linking feeling.

0:00:330:00:35

Alex and Bronagh, introduce yourselves.

0:00:400:00:42

I'm Alex, I'm a student from Manchester and this is my friend.

0:00:420:00:45

I'm Bronagh, I'm a student who studies in Manchester,

0:00:450:00:48

but I'm from Newcastle.

0:00:480:00:49

APPLAUSE

0:00:490:00:51

So why did you want to be on a quiz show?

0:00:510:00:54

Just to show off a little bit.

0:00:540:00:55

OK. Right then. Well, now's your chance.

0:00:550:00:59

Simon and Stacy, tell us about yourselves.

0:00:590:01:02

My name is Simon and I'm a life coach from London

0:01:020:01:05

and this is my beautiful wife.

0:01:050:01:08

And I'm Stacy and I'm a health coach.

0:01:080:01:10

I'm originally from America,

0:01:100:01:11

but now I live in London with my charming husband, Simon.

0:01:110:01:14

-APPLAUSE

-Aw.

0:01:140:01:17

What's a health coach?

0:01:190:01:20

I take care of the whole of your life,

0:01:200:01:23

but I'm also a chef, so I feed you into perfect health.

0:01:230:01:26

-Yes?

-All aspects of your life.

0:01:260:01:28

Marvellous. Lucky Simon.

0:01:280:01:30

-I get to eat all the wonderful food.

-Very good. Well done.

0:01:300:01:33

Adam and Sam, introduce yourselves.

0:01:330:01:36

I'm Adam, I'm 35 from Rossendale and I this is my friend.

0:01:360:01:39

I'm Sam, I live in Accrington, Lancashire,

0:01:390:01:41

and a work at a footwear import company.

0:01:410:01:43

APPLAUSE

0:01:430:01:46

So, you're importing footwear?

0:01:460:01:48

Yes, yeah.

0:01:480:01:50

Any specific type of footwear?

0:01:500:01:51

Ladies' shoes, men's shoes, kids' shoes. Something to suit you.

0:01:510:01:54

LAUGHTER

0:01:540:01:55

Suit me. Thank you very much. See what he did there?

0:01:550:01:58

Right, welcome all.

0:01:580:02:00

Now pay attention. Here are six cash pods

0:02:000:02:03

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

0:02:030:02:07

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

0:02:070:02:11

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

0:02:110:02:13

until they drop down into your bank.

0:02:130:02:16

And here is how you cut the links.

0:02:160:02:18

I am going to ask you four questions

0:02:180:02:19

and you have to work out what links the answers.

0:02:190:02:22

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

0:02:220:02:24

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

0:02:240:02:27

If you spot it after the second answer, you can cut three,

0:02:270:02:31

then two, then one.

0:02:310:02:33

The link here, of course, is...

0:02:330:02:35

-ALL:

-Types of tea.

-Yes, very good.

0:02:350:02:37

Let's cut that link.

0:02:430:02:45

You need to bank as much cash as you can

0:02:500:02:52

because the team with the least amount of money

0:02:520:02:54

at the end of this round will be going home.

0:02:540:02:57

Let's play The Link.

Think carefully about whether you want to

0:05:160:05:18

or snip away at one of those bigger pods.

0:22:490:22:51

Is the link names of popes?

0:22:510:22:53

APPLAUSE

0:22:540:22:57

The remaining clues were...

0:22:590:23:00

The Pope. We are giving you that,

0:23:040:23:05

although the Vatican City is not a Pope.

0:23:050:23:08

However, it is his home.

0:23:080:23:11

You have got four links to cut.

0:23:110:23:14

However, still back in play.

0:24:270:24:29

Come on, girls. Stand by.

0:24:290:24:32

0:25:130:25:15

APPLAUSE

0:25:190:25:21

D-Day beaches. Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah.

0:25:210:25:24

You got that on the third clue,

0:25:240:25:26

which means you have two links to cut.

0:25:260:25:29

-Shall we just carry on?

-Yes.

0:25:290:25:31

Let's carry on.

0:25:310:25:33

0:25:360:25:37

APPLAUSE

0:25:370:25:41

Simon and Stacy on £3,000 are going through to the next round.

0:25:410:25:44

Adam and Sam on £1,675 are going through to the next round,

0:25:440:25:50

but Alex and Bronagh aren't.

0:25:500:25:53

We have to say goodbye to you now. Thanks for playing.

0:25:530:25:55

-Au revoir.

-Thanks Alex, thanks Bronagh. See you.

0:25:550:25:58

Simon and Stacy, Adam and Sam, you are still in the game.

0:26:010:26:05

Simon and Stacy, so far

0:26:050:26:07

you've banked £3,000.

0:26:070:26:09

Adam and Sam, you banked £1,675.

0:26:090:26:13

That money is now in these two cash pods, each held by seven links.

0:26:130:26:19

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

0:26:190:26:22

takes that money through to the final round.

0:26:220:26:24

The other team will be out.

0:26:240:26:27

Now you can be as brave or as cautious as you like

0:26:270:26:30

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

0:26:300:26:33

I'm going to ask you to identify a person, place or thing

0:26:330:26:37

from a series of clues and you tell me

0:26:370:26:39

whether you want to play for one, two, three or four links.

0:26:390:26:44

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

0:26:440:26:47

If you do not spot the link, your opponents will see all the clues

0:26:470:26:51

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

0:26:510:26:55

Simon and Stacy have brought the most money through this round,

0:26:550:26:58

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

0:26:580:27:03

What do you think? First or second?

0:27:030:27:05

Let's get a jump on it.

0:27:050:27:07

Let's get a jump on it.

0:27:070:27:08

Right, let's play.

0:27:080:27:10

Stand by. Round Two.

0:27:120:27:14

Your first question is asking...

0:27:140:27:17

..what am I?

0:27:180:27:20

How many links would you like to play for?

0:27:200:27:23

We talked about this and we think to warm up,

0:27:230:27:26

we should play for two links.

0:27:260:27:27

For two links, here are your clues.

0:27:270:27:29

What am I?

0:27:510:27:53

The only clue that I've got, really, is around Sir Alex Ferguson,

0:27:530:27:57

and I think he managed Aberdeen beforehand.

0:27:570:28:00

And Aberdeen, isn't that...?

0:28:000:28:01

-So, what am I? The city of Aberdeen, that's what I think.

-OK.

0:28:010:28:06

Am I Aberdeen?

0:28:060:28:08

Good.

0:28:090:28:11

-APPLAUSE

-The other clue was...

0:28:110:28:13

Let's cut two links.

0:28:170:28:19

Leaving you with five.

0:28:230:28:25

Adam and Sam, your question will be asking...

0:28:250:28:28

..what am I?

0:28:290:28:31

How many links do you want to try and cut?

0:28:310:28:32

-We'll warm up with two as well, please.

-You'll warm up with two.

0:28:320:28:35

Yeah, we'll warm up with two.

0:28:350:28:36

OK, for two links, here are your clues.

0:28:360:28:39

What am I?

0:28:390:28:40

-Big Girls Don't Cry.

-What am I?

-You're the musicals specialist.

0:28:580:29:01

That's a song by the Beach Boys, isn't it? Isn't it?

0:29:010:29:04

-Big Girls Don't Cry?

-Well, what's the musical?

0:29:040:29:07

# Big girls don't cry They don't cry. #

0:29:070:29:10

-It was that.

-Yeah, but it's a Broadway show, isn't it?

0:29:100:29:14

Who is John Lloyd Young?

0:29:140:29:16

So, it's a man, so it could be the Beach Boys.

0:29:160:29:18

Male role. That's not a Broad... Is there a Beach Boys Story?

0:29:180:29:22

-Could be.

-Need an answer, please. You're running out of time.

0:29:220:29:25

Do you want to go that? The Beach Boys Story.

0:29:250:29:29

Am I the Beach Boys Story?

0:29:290:29:31

No.

0:29:330:29:34

Simon and Stacy, you have a chance to nick a link.

0:29:340:29:38

You will see the remaining clue

0:29:380:29:39

for a chance to cut a single link from your cash pod.

0:29:390:29:43

Here it is.

0:29:430:29:44

What am I?

0:29:500:29:51

Jersey Boys.

0:29:510:29:53

So, I thought that Big Girls Don't Cry was by Frankie Valli.

0:29:540:29:59

-And you think it's the Jersey Boys.

-The Jersey Boys.

0:30:000:30:03

So, I think it might be that, the Jersey Boys.

0:30:030:30:07

Am I the Jersey Boys?

0:30:070:30:09

Yes.

0:30:100:30:12

Excellent. So you nicked a link. Let's cut it from your cash pod.

0:30:150:30:20

Leaving only four links. And now it's your turn.

0:30:220:30:25

Your question will be asking...

0:30:250:30:27

..what am I?

0:30:290:30:30

How many links would you like to try and cut?

0:30:300:30:32

-I think we will stick with a winning formula.

-Winning formula.

0:30:320:30:36

And go with two, please.

0:30:360:30:38

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

0:30:380:30:41

What am I?

0:31:030:31:04

Looks like an iPhone, but I don't think that was ever made of wood.

0:31:050:31:09

No.

0:31:090:31:10

Now from plastic. A billion of me.

0:31:100:31:13

Play word. Play well. PlayStation?

0:31:140:31:17

-I don't know.

-Play...

0:31:170:31:20

Is it not...? I think I might know what it is.

0:31:220:31:24

-Need an answer.

-Bluetooth.

0:31:240:31:26

Am I Bluetooth?

0:31:260:31:28

No.

0:31:290:31:31

Adam and Sam, you have a chance to nick a link.

0:31:310:31:33

You will see the remaining clue.

0:31:330:31:34

Lego.

0:31:380:31:39

-What am I?

-Lego.

0:31:420:31:44

Am I Lego?

0:31:440:31:45

-Yes.

-APPLAUSE

0:31:460:31:49

So, you nicked a link. Let's cut it from your cash pod.

0:31:500:31:53

Leaving six links. And now it's your turn.

0:31:550:31:59

Your question will be asking...

0:31:590:32:01

How many links do you want to play for?

0:32:040:32:07

-Can we go for two links, please?

-OK.

0:32:070:32:08

For two links, here are your clues. Stand by.

0:32:080:32:11

-What am I?

-You are tin.

0:32:310:32:33

Tin.

0:32:330:32:34

-ADAM LAUGHS

-Am I tin? Are you tin?

0:32:340:32:37

I am tin.

0:32:370:32:38

-APPLAUSE

-The remaining clue was...

0:32:380:32:41

..and soup.

0:32:450:32:47

Tin, correct.

0:32:470:32:48

Let's cut those two links.

0:32:480:32:50

Leaving you with four.

0:32:530:32:55

Simon and Stacy, you too have four links

0:32:550:32:58

and your question will be asking...

0:32:580:33:01

-How many links do you want to go for?

-Two.

0:33:030:33:06

You want to go for two?

0:33:060:33:07

Or we could put some pressure on by going for three.

0:33:070:33:09

Pressure on who?

0:33:090:33:10

Well said. Well said, Stacy. Yeah.

0:33:110:33:14

-We'll go for two.

-Well listened, Simon.

0:33:140:33:16

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

0:33:160:33:19

Who am I?

0:33:390:33:40

The only person that comes to my mind,

0:33:420:33:45

and it is probably not her, is...

0:33:450:33:47

It might be her.

0:33:470:33:49

..is Elizabeth Hurley, but I don't know why I think that.

0:33:490:33:51

She's not American, though, is she?

0:33:510:33:53

That doesn't matter.

0:33:530:33:56

-Let's try that.

-I need an answer.

0:33:560:33:59

-The only thing I have got is Elizabeth Hurley.

-Right.

0:33:590:34:01

Am I Elizabeth Hurley?

0:34:010:34:03

Ah, no.

0:34:050:34:06

Adam and Sam, you have a chance to nick a link.

0:34:060:34:09

Here is the remaining clue.

0:34:090:34:10

Who am I?

0:34:150:34:16

You're Emma Watson.

0:34:160:34:17

Am I Emma Watson?

0:34:170:34:19

Yep.

0:34:210:34:22

You have nicked a link.

0:34:240:34:26

Let's remove it.

0:34:260:34:28

Leaving you three links.

0:34:280:34:30

And it is now your turn.

0:34:300:34:32

Your question will be asking...

0:34:320:34:34

How many links would you like to play for?

0:34:370:34:38

-I'd say go for two.

-Two again?

0:34:380:34:40

For two links, here are your clues. Stand by.

0:34:400:34:43

What am I?

0:34:430:34:45

Water or...? Do you know?

0:35:120:35:13

The only thing I can think of, water with vegetable oil,

0:35:130:35:16

it could be margarine. I don't think that's made in the 1860s.

0:35:160:35:18

It's more plastic, and margarine is not Greek for pearl.

0:35:180:35:21

I think it's margarine. I think.

0:35:210:35:23

I'd like to try margarine.

0:35:230:35:25

-Need an answer.

-Margarine?

0:35:260:35:28

Am I margarine?

0:35:280:35:30

Yes. The remaining clue was...

0:35:340:35:37

The Greek for pearl is margaron.

0:35:390:35:42

Let's cut your two links.

0:35:420:35:44

Leaving one.

0:35:470:35:48

Simon and Stacy, your question will be asking...

0:35:480:35:52

How many links would you like to play for?

0:35:540:35:57

-The pressure is on.

-Yes, it's on now.

-We could go for four.

0:35:570:36:00

That's what we are here for, isn't it? Yeah, we'll go four.

0:36:000:36:02

-OK.

-You better get smart.

-Good.

-Really fast.

0:36:020:36:04

Right, for four links.

0:36:040:36:07

Here is your clue. What am I?

0:36:070:36:09

So, this is the point where we change our mind. Hmm.

0:36:160:36:19

"I am reputed to have been first celebrated in 1621."

0:36:190:36:23

Parties.

0:36:230:36:25

Some type of opening of a city.

0:36:250:36:28

-Have you got anything?

-Um...

0:36:280:36:31

Guy Fawkes night.

0:36:310:36:33

Am I Guy Fawkes night?

0:36:330:36:36

No.

0:36:370:36:38

Right, Adam and Sam, with one link left you have chance to nick a link

0:36:380:36:43

and you will see the remaining clues.

0:36:430:36:45

Here they are.

0:36:450:36:47

..turkey dinner!

0:37:100:37:12

Yeah, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving.

0:37:120:37:14

Am I Thanksgiving?

0:37:140:37:16

-APPLAUSE

-I sure am.

0:37:170:37:20

Adam and Sam, you have nicked a link and there it goes.

0:37:220:37:25

APPLAUSE

0:37:290:37:31

So, well done, Adam and Sam.

0:37:310:37:33

You are through to the next round, and that cash goes with you.

0:37:330:37:36

Commiserations, Stacy and Simon.

0:37:360:37:39

Anyway, it was a real pleasure having you play the game.

0:37:390:37:42

-It was fun.

-It was fun, yeah.

0:37:420:37:43

You played a great game, but I'm afraid, time to say goodbye.

0:37:430:37:46

-Thanks for playing The Link.

-Bye! Good luck.

0:37:460:37:49

Adam and Sam, you are today's finalists.

0:37:520:37:56

You have brought £1,675 through to the final round,

0:37:560:38:00

to which we will add £2,000.

0:38:000:38:03

Making that

0:38:040:38:05

a total in your bank

0:38:050:38:07

of a possible £3,675

0:38:070:38:10

to take away.

0:38:100:38:12

What would you do with it?

0:38:120:38:13

-Holiday.

-Yeah.

-I think a little bit of a holiday.

0:38:130:38:15

-Contribution for a holiday.

-Calm yourselves.

0:38:150:38:17

OK, good.

0:38:170:38:19

To take that money home, you have just 60 seconds

0:38:190:38:21

to find six super-links.

0:38:210:38:25

At each level, you need to identify the link between ten clues.

0:38:250:38:29

As soon as you think you know the answer,

0:38:290:38:31

buzz in and we'll stop the clock.

0:38:310:38:32

If you're right, you can take that money home, but choose to play on,

0:38:320:38:36

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

0:38:360:38:40

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

0:38:400:38:44

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

0:38:440:38:47

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

0:38:470:38:50

Who's going to play first?

0:38:500:38:52

I think I'll play first.

0:38:520:38:53

Sam, you are on your own, no conferring.

0:38:530:38:56

The clock will start when you see the first clue.

0:38:560:38:58

Let's see if you can find the link.

0:38:580:39:01

Phixx.

0:39:060:39:07

LFO.

0:39:070:39:09

Sam?

0:39:150:39:17

Boybands.

0:39:170:39:18

Is the link boybands?

0:39:180:39:20

-Yep.

-APPLAUSE

0:39:210:39:24

Backstreet Boys, and the final clues were...

0:39:240:39:26

That puts you on £125.

0:39:300:39:33

Adam and Sam, with 50 seconds remaining on the clock,

0:39:360:39:39

you now have a choice.

0:39:390:39:40

You can take that money and go or you can play on.

0:39:400:39:43

We're playing on.

0:39:430:39:45

Adam, you are on your own now, no conferring.

0:39:450:39:47

The clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:39:470:39:50

-Adam.

-Is it Grand National?

0:39:580:40:00

Is the link Grand National?

0:40:000:40:01

No - high.

0:40:020:40:04

And the remaining clues were...

0:40:040:40:07

And the link was high.

0:40:090:40:12

Which means play stays with you and you now face a new super-link.

0:40:120:40:17

44 seconds left, the clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:40:170:40:21

Basil.

0:40:230:40:24

Magic Roundabout.

0:40:370:40:39

Is the link Magic Roundabout?

0:40:390:40:41

That puts you on £300.

0:40:430:40:45

With 31 seconds on the clock, you have the choice.

0:40:470:40:51

You can take that money and go home or you can play on.

0:40:510:40:54

-I'm ready, yeah.

-Right, he's up.

0:40:540:40:55

Sam, your turn now. No conferring.

0:40:550:40:57

The clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:40:570:41:01

Frigg.

0:41:010:41:02

Vikings gods.

0:41:180:41:20

Is the link Viking gods?

0:41:200:41:23

Oh, we'll have that!

0:41:260:41:28

The last piece in the jigsaw was...

0:41:280:41:30

That puts you on £500.

0:41:320:41:36

APPLAUSE

0:41:360:41:38

With 18 seconds remaining on the clock.

0:41:380:41:41

You can decide to take that money and go, or play on.

0:41:410:41:46

-Shall we do it, then?

-Let's do it.

0:41:460:41:48

There we go. The hand goes to the shoulder,

0:41:480:41:50

which means, Adam, it's your turn now.

0:41:500:41:52

The clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:41:520:41:55

Eddie Murphy films.

0:42:080:42:09

Yes!

0:42:100:42:11

Is the link Eddie Murphy films?

0:42:110:42:15

-Correct!

-APPLAUSE

0:42:150:42:18

The remaining clues were...

0:42:180:42:21

Yes, Eddie Murphy films. Right, that puts you on...

0:42:240:42:27

..£750.

0:42:290:42:31

With eight seconds remaining on the clock,

0:42:320:42:34

you have to decide whether you're going to take that money and go

0:42:340:42:37

or, Sam, whether you're going to play on.

0:42:370:42:40

I don't think we need to discuss it, do we?

0:42:400:42:42

-Yeah.

-We'll leave some prize money left there.

0:42:420:42:44

We'll take the £750, please.

0:42:440:42:46

-They're going to go.

-We'll take the money.

-We'll take the money.

0:42:460:42:49

Adam and Sam, you didn't make it to today's top prize,

0:42:490:42:51

but you're going home with 750 quid.

0:42:510:42:55

APPLAUSE

0:42:550:42:58

Adam and Sam, it's been a real pleasure

0:42:580:43:00

-having you playing The Link.

-Thank you.

0:43:000:43:02

You've been excellent contestants and I'm really pleased

0:43:020:43:05

you're going home with 750 quid and I hope it gives you great pleasure.

0:43:050:43:09

Really enjoyed it.

0:43:090:43:11

-Thanks very much.

-Thank you.

0:43:110:43:13

Join us next time when three more pairs will be playing The Link.

0:43:130:43:17

See you then. Goodbye.

0:43:170:43:18

Mark Williams hosts the quiz where knowing the answers is only half the battle and contestants need to find the link between the answers to win. Three teams compete against each other to break the links on the cash pods to secure a place in the final and the chance to take home the money.
