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

0:00:160:00:18

where knowing the answers is only half the battle.

0:00:180:00:21

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

0:00:210:00:24

Three teams are hoping to make the right connections,

0:00:240:00:26

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

0:00:260:00:29

Let's see who's sensational, stupendous and set to swoop.

0:00:290:00:33

I'm Ed. I'm a financial planner and this is my friend.

0:00:360:00:39

I'm Angie. I sell football sponsorship

0:00:400:00:43

and we're both from Surrey.

0:00:430:00:44

APPLAUSE

0:00:440:00:45

How did you two meet?

0:00:470:00:49

Behind the goal.

0:00:510:00:52

We support rival teams. I was working the turnstile.

0:00:520:00:54

He came through. Then, when I went to stand behind the goal,

0:00:540:00:58

he said to me, "Why have you taken 12 quid off me for this rubbish?"

0:00:580:01:01

The pie was better.

0:01:010:01:02

-Was it?

-Yeah.

0:01:020:01:03

-Ed and Angie, welcome.

-Thank you.

0:01:030:01:05

Fiona and Michael, introduce yourselves.

0:01:060:01:08

Hi, I'm Fiona. I'm a recent graduate and this is my brother.

0:01:080:01:12

Hi, my name's Michael. I'm a junior doctor

0:01:120:01:14

and we're both from Cheshire.

0:01:140:01:15

APPLAUSE

0:01:150:01:16

Michael, you're training for Hell Runner. What's that?

0:01:180:01:21

It's a ten- to 12-mile assault course

0:01:210:01:24

and you have to run through bogs and up hills and so on.

0:01:240:01:26

Why are you doing that?

0:01:260:01:28

To raise money for charity.

0:01:280:01:29

One of my friends is quite ill at the moment,

0:01:290:01:31

so me and another friend are both doing it for that reason.

0:01:310:01:34

OK. Fiona, you have a gap year coming up. Any plans?

0:01:340:01:37

Yeah, I'm flying to New Zealand in two weeks, actually.

0:01:370:01:40

I'm hoping to buy a car and just do a road trip round the whole country.

0:01:400:01:43

-On your own?

-Yeah, on my own.

0:01:430:01:45

Brave girl, there.

0:01:450:01:47

Fiona and Michael, welcome.

0:01:470:01:49

Thank you.

0:01:490:01:50

Luke and Tom, introduce yourselves.

0:01:500:01:52

Hi, my name's Luke. I'm an estate agent and this is my friend.

0:01:520:01:55

Hi, I'm Tom. I work for a publishing company

0:01:550:01:57

and we're both up from London.

0:01:570:01:58

APPLAUSE

0:01:580:01:59

-You two met at university?

-Yeah.

0:02:020:02:04

We first met on the first day, went out and the next day

0:02:040:02:07

I locked Tom in his bedroom

0:02:070:02:10

and then went to a university lecture, so he missed it.

0:02:100:02:13

At this meeting, there was some quite specific information

0:02:130:02:16

about what we needed for a field trip.

0:02:160:02:18

I then went back to Tom and told him he needed

0:02:180:02:20

a whole kitchen's worth of utensils to take to the field trip,

0:02:200:02:23

which he did.

0:02:230:02:24

I looked like a prat, turning up in front of everyone with a carrier bag

0:02:240:02:28

covered in loads and loads of bags.

0:02:280:02:30

Luke, I'm hoping the locking of the door was accidental.

0:02:300:02:33

Yes, that's true. That's correct.

0:02:330:02:36

Do you believe that, Tom?

0:02:360:02:37

No, because he clingfilmed me in, really.

0:02:370:02:40

Luke and Tom, welcome.

0:02:400:02:41

Welcome, all. Now, pay attention...

0:02:410:02:43

Here are six cash pods, containing amounts ranging from £125 to £2,000.

0:02:430:02:49

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

0:02:490:02:52

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

0:02:520:02:55

until they drop down into your bank.

0:02:550:02:57

And here's how you cut the links.

0:02:570:02:59

I am going to ask you four questions

0:02:590:03:01

and you have to work out what links the answers.

0:03:010:03:04

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

0:03:040:03:06

you will be able to cut four of those links.

0:03:060:03:09

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

0:03:090:03:13

Then two.

0:03:130:03:14

And then one.

0:03:140:03:15

Warm. Milk. Drink. Cocoa. And, of course, the link here is?

0:03:160:03:20

-ALL: Hot chocolate.

-Yeah!

0:03:200:03:22

APPLAUSE

0:03:220:03:23

Let's cut that link.

0:03:250:03:26

APPLAUSE

0:03:280:03:29

You need to bank as much cash as you can,

0:03:310:03:33

because the team with the least amount of money

0:03:330:03:35

at the end of this round

0:03:350:03:37

will be going home.

0:03:370:03:38

Let's play The Link.

0:03:380:03:40

APPLAUSE

0:03:400:03:41

Round one. Stand by. Here is your first question for four links...

0:03:490:03:53

..what leafy green vegetable has the scientific name allium porrum?

0:03:550:03:59

Leek. Correct.

0:03:590:04:01

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

0:04:010:04:03

Oh, what do you think, Angie?

0:04:030:04:05

0:04:050:04:07

-Vegetables.

0:04:070:04:08

0:04:140:04:18

-Snowdon.

0:04:240:04:26

..Earl of where?

0:04:260:04:27

Snowdon. Correct.

0:04:270:04:28

Leek. Snowdon. Big mountain.

0:04:280:04:30

Let's go with Wales.

0:04:350:04:38

0:04:530:04:54

St David is correct.

0:04:540:04:56

-Something to do with Wales.

-Yeah, Wales, I think.

0:04:570:04:59

-We think the link is Wales.

-Is the link Wales?

0:04:590:05:01

Richard Burton, famous son.

0:05:130:05:15

You got that on the third clue, Fiona and Michael,

0:05:150:05:18

which means you can cut two links.

0:05:180:05:19

Think very carefully about whether you want to cut links

0:05:190:05:22

on the smaller values for a quick-cash fix

0:05:220:05:24

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

0:05:240:05:28

Fiona and Michael, what would you like to do?

0:05:280:05:30

-Shall we just go for the money?

-Let's take the money.

0:05:300:05:32

OK, we'll snip two links on 300, please.

0:05:320:05:35

OK, let snip two links on the £300.

0:05:350:05:37

OK.

0:05:410:05:42

0:07:180:07:21

What would you like to do, Fiona and Michael?

0:07:210:07:22

Maybe go for a small amount and take a link.

0:07:220:07:25

So, can we take the 125 and one off the 2,000, please?

0:07:250:07:28

Let's do that. Let's take one link from the 2,000...

0:07:280:07:31

..and one from the 125.

So, you got that on the last clue.

0:09:580:10:00

Which means you can cut one link. What would you like to do?

0:10:000:10:02

Do you want to just cut another from 2,000,

0:10:020:10:04

or do you want to go for a smaller amount?

0:12:010:12:03

We think the link might be Flash Gordon.

0:12:040:12:07

Is the link Flash Gordon?

0:12:070:12:08

APPLAUSE

0:12:100:12:12

# Ah-ah!

0:12:130:12:14

Saviour of the universe, yes.

0:12:140:12:15

Queen, the title song.

0:12:150:12:18

Ming, the merciless.

0:12:180:12:19

Space is where it was set.

0:12:190:12:21

And Brian Blessed played Prince Vultan.

0:12:210:12:23

On the last clue you got that, so that means you can cut one link.

0:12:230:12:27

Shall we take one off the 1,000 or one off another one?

0:12:270:12:29

I don't mind. What do you want to do?

0:12:290:12:31

Shall we take one off 1,000, please?

0:12:310:12:33

-OK. Are you agreeing with that, Fiona?

-Yeah, sure.

0:12:330:12:35

OK.

0:12:350:12:36

OK, let's take one off the £1,000 pod.

0:12:360:12:39

Stand by for four links...

0:12:400:12:42

Running between 1968 and 1980

0:12:440:12:48

and presented by Jenny Hanley and Mick Robertson, amongst others,

0:12:480:12:52

ITV's answer to Blue Peter was called what?

0:12:520:12:54

-Michael.

-Was it Magpie?

0:12:560:12:57

It was.

0:12:570:12:58

-Birds is the first thing...

-Birds is the obvious one. Erm...

0:13:000:13:03

The other thing I instantly think of

0:13:040:13:06

is Newcastle United Football Club.

0:13:060:13:08

But, what do you think?

0:13:080:13:10

-Shall we go birds?

-Yeah, let's go with birds.

0:13:100:13:12

Can we go with birds?

0:13:120:13:14

Is the link birds?

0:13:140:13:15

No. Everyone, back in play.

0:13:170:13:19

Stand by for three links...

0:13:190:13:21

Set in Scotland, which is Shakespeare's shortest tragedy?

-Fiona.

-Macbeth.

0:13:240:13:25

Correct.

0:13:250:13:26

What's the link?

0:13:290:13:30

So, I am slightly lost here. Do you have any idea?

0:13:300:13:33

I can't think what connects Macbeth and magpies.

0:13:330:13:37

Jewellery. Magpies like shiny things.

0:13:370:13:40

They do.

0:13:400:13:41

Like crowns. Macbeth is all about becoming king.

0:13:410:13:43

-Shall we go with jewellery?

-Yep.

0:13:430:13:46

-Can we go with jewellery?

-Is the link jewellery?

0:13:460:13:48

No. Interesting theory there, Michael.

0:13:500:13:54

However, you are wrong.

0:13:540:13:55

Everyone's back in play. Stand by for two links...

0:13:550:13:57

According to the RSPCA in recent UK press reports,

0:13:580:14:02

which particular household pet of which colour

No.

0:14:140:14:15

Golden retriever.

0:14:160:14:17

No.

0:14:170:14:18

The answer is...

0:14:180:14:20

No-one has a chance to make the link.

0:14:210:14:23

You're all back in play. Stand by for one link...

0:14:230:14:25

Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of which number?

0:14:250:14:29

-Angie.

-13.

0:14:290:14:31

Correct.

0:14:310:14:32

-These are unlucky.

-One second...

0:14:330:14:35

-I'm sorry, mate.

-That's all right.

0:14:350:14:36

Yeah, let's confer. Let's confer.

0:14:360:14:39

-They're unlucky...

-Situations.

0:14:390:14:40

-Yeah, yeah.

-Or unlucky things.

0:14:400:14:42

Unlucky.

0:14:420:14:43

Is the link unlucky?

0:14:430:14:44

APPLAUSE

0:14:460:14:48

Yeah. Bad luck.

0:14:480:14:49

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

0:14:500:14:53

What would you like to do, Ed and Angie?

0:14:530:14:55

-Which one are we going to cut?

-I think the 750.

0:14:550:14:57

Do you think...?

0:14:570:14:58

Because, in case we get the next one, then we would have 500 in.

0:14:580:15:01

Er...

0:15:010:15:02

OK.

0:15:020:15:03

We'll do one on 500.

0:15:030:15:05

You're going to take one link from £500.

0:15:050:15:07

Run me through that again, Angie. What is the thinking behind that?

0:15:090:15:12

Because, if we got through the next round,

0:15:120:15:14

we might be able to cut the two links and have 500 in the pot.

0:15:140:15:18

And I went with Angie, because I always do what I'm told.

0:15:180:15:21

What Angie says.

0:15:210:15:23

OK, then.

0:15:230:15:24

Right, everyone's back in play.

0:15:240:15:25

Stand by for four links...

0:15:250:15:28

In western cultures, what type of jewellery is traditionally...?

0:15:290:15:33

-Ed.

-Rings.

0:15:330:15:34

Correct.

0:15:340:15:35

In western cultures, what types of jewellery are traditionally

0:15:350:15:39

exchanged by a couple after they have taken their wedding vows?

0:15:390:15:42

Rings.

0:15:420:15:43

Oh, what about gymnastics? You know?

0:15:460:15:48

-It could be.

-Rings. Vault horse.

0:15:480:15:51

Or it could be something to do with Saturn, rings of Saturn.

0:15:510:15:54

Planets.

0:15:550:15:56

-I reckon more gymnastics equipment.

-OK.

0:15:560:15:59

-Shall we go with that?

-Gymnastics.

0:15:590:16:01

Is the link gymnastics?

0:16:010:16:03

Good shot, Angie!

0:16:040:16:05

APPLAUSE

0:16:050:16:06

The remaining clues were...

0:16:080:16:09

All disciplines of gymnastics.

0:16:110:16:13

Louis Smith, medal-winning gymnast whose discipline pommel horse.

0:16:130:16:17

So, you got that on the first clue, which means you can cut four links.

0:16:170:16:20

Go for the 2,000, then, please.

0:16:200:16:22

No, four links... Oh, yeah! Oh, yes, please.

0:16:220:16:25

Cor, blimey! I've excelled myself.

0:16:260:16:28

You certainly have. Let's do that without further ado.

0:16:300:16:32

Let's cut the four links on the £2,000.

0:16:320:16:35

Which means Ed and Angie have banked £2,000

0:16:390:16:42

and are definitely through

0:16:420:16:44

to the next round.

0:16:440:16:46

Right, Fiona and Michael, Luke and Tom, who is going to join them?

0:16:460:16:51

Stand by for four links...

Prior to lumens, in which unit was light bulb brightness measured?

0:16:550:16:59

0:17:000:17:01

Is correct.

0:17:010:17:02

Right, come on, Angie.

0:17:050:17:06

Erm...inventors. Watt did the light bulb.

0:17:060:17:09

You might have Stevenson's...

0:17:090:17:11

So, shall we say inventors?

0:17:110:17:12

No, Watt. His name was Watt, not Watts.

0:17:120:17:14

Power. Unit of power.

0:17:150:17:17

Shall we go with inventors? We've got nothing else to go for.

0:17:170:17:20

-All right.

-We'll go with inventors.

0:17:200:17:21

Is the link inventors?

0:17:210:17:23

0:17:320:17:34

Correct.

0:17:340:17:35

Train stations? That's not a train station.

0:17:380:17:41

-I was thinking of Watts.

-No. There isn't a Watts train station.

0:17:410:17:44

-Shall we just say train sta...

-Places of interest.

0:17:440:17:46

Is the link places of interest?

0:17:460:17:48

No.

..are what types of coloured sweetener?

0:17:590:18:02

Correct. Brown sugar.

0:18:020:18:03

A Rolling Stones gig, isn't it?

0:18:070:18:08

Yeah, I was thinking Rolling Stones, as well, with Brown Sugar.

0:18:080:18:11

Rolling Stones?

0:18:110:18:12

Is the link the Rolling Stones?

0:18:120:18:14

They played Hyde Park twice... 1969 and 2013.

0:18:230:18:27

Watts, Charlie, the drummer.

0:18:270:18:31

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

0:18:310:18:34

What would you like to do, Luke and Tom?

0:18:340:18:36

I think we'll go for the 500, don't you?

0:18:360:18:38

Yeah, I agree. The 500 will do.

0:18:380:18:40

Right, you're going to go for the £500. Let's do that now.

0:18:400:18:42

OK.

0:18:460:18:47

So...

0:18:480:18:49

to see who follows Ed and Angie through to the next round.

0:18:540:18:57

0:19:130:19:15

Celebrity is correct.

0:19:150:19:18

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

0:19:180:19:19

What about either famous people or cruise lines?

0:19:190:19:22

Well, you did all right with gymnastics, so we'll go with yours.

0:19:220:19:24

-Cruise lines.

-Is the link cruise lines?

0:19:240:19:27

0:19:280:19:29

Yes. Television.

0:19:430:19:45

We'll give you that.

0:19:460:19:47

It's the standard abbreviation for television.

0:19:470:19:49

Ed and Angie, what's the link?

0:19:510:19:52

What about, well, variety...

0:19:520:19:54

-Celebri...

-They have celebrities on it.

0:20:020:20:04

Is the link the Royal Variety Show?

0:20:040:20:06

No.

0:20:070:20:08

Everyone's back in play. Stand by for two links...

0:20:080:20:12

"It was a bright, cold day in April

0:20:120:20:14

"and the clocks were striking 13," is the opening...

0:20:140:20:17

-Fiona?

Is the link Big Brother?

0:20:300:20:31

The final clue was...

0:20:360:20:37

There's a celebrity version.

0:20:380:20:40

It's compulsive television.

0:20:400:20:42

The concept of Big Brother watching over you

0:20:420:20:44

comes from George Orwell's 1984 novel.

0:20:440:20:47

And it's set in a house.

0:20:470:20:49

You've got that on the third clue, which means you can cut two links.

0:20:500:20:53

What do you think we should do?

0:20:530:20:55

Cut two from the 1,000?

0:20:550:20:57

Erm... That makes it easier to get.

0:20:570:20:58

If we take two from 75, being tactical here,

0:20:580:21:01

then, even if that one's taken by our nemeses,

0:21:010:21:06

we've still got a chance of getting the 1,000.

0:21:060:21:09

If you want to be tactical, go on, then.

0:21:090:21:10

Can we take two from the 750, please?

0:21:100:21:13

I'm sure this'll backfire now.

0:21:130:21:15

OK. Let's take two links from the £750 pod.

-Shall we go for island nations?

0:21:450:21:48

Yeah. OK. Can we go with island nations?

0:21:480:21:50

0:22:370:22:38

Yep.

APPLAUSE

0:22:500:22:54

-Let's go for the 750?

-Yep, can we take the 750, please.?

0:22:540:22:57

I'm kicking myself we didn't go for the 1,000 there, yeah.

0:22:570:22:59

What did I tell you?

0:22:590:23:01

OK. Let's cut the two links on the 750.

APPLAUSE

0:23:090:23:10

0:23:320:23:34

..to keep a low profile. Correct.

0:23:340:23:36

Stamps? You get a profile on a stamp.

0:23:380:23:40

Types of portrait. They paint your profile.

Any other ideas?

0:24:190:24:23

who is asked to draw back his bow and let his arrow go?

0:24:230:24:26

-Tom?

-Cupid?

0:24:270:24:28

Correct.

0:24:280:24:29

Cupid, Valentine's Day, angel...

0:24:330:24:35

Name?

0:24:350:24:36

Fairy.

0:24:360:24:38

Profile.

0:24:380:24:39

Yeah.

0:24:390:24:40

Cupid. Let's go for...

0:24:400:24:42

Answer, please.

0:24:420:24:44

Pictures?

0:24:440:24:45

Pictures.

0:24:450:24:46

Is the link pictures?

0:24:460:24:48

No.

0:24:490:24:50

Everyone's back in play. Stand by for one link...

0:24:500:24:53

The 2006 number one single Welcome To The Black Parade

0:24:540:24:58

is the bestselling UK hit...

0:24:580:25:00

-Fiona?

-My Chemical Romance?

0:25:000:25:02

..of the American rock band called My Chemical what?

0:25:020:25:05

Romance. Correct.

0:25:050:25:06

Fiona and Michael, what's the link?

0:25:090:25:10

-Sounds like online dating.

-Online dating.

0:25:100:25:13

Is the link online dating?

0:25:130:25:14

Yep!

0:25:160:25:17

APPLAUSE

0:25:170:25:18

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

0:25:200:25:23

-Shall we just do that?

-Oooh...

-Decisions, decisions.

0:25:230:25:26

-The 1,000, yeah.

-OK, let's cut that link.

0:25:260:25:28

Three remaining. Everyone's back in play.

0:25:290:25:32

Stand by for four links...

0:25:320:25:34

A derivative of the original name of Iran is used to describe...

0:25:360:25:40

-Michael?

-Persian carpets?

0:25:400:25:41

Persian. Correct.

0:25:410:25:43

A derivative of the original name of Iran is used to describe

0:25:440:25:48

a breed of long-haired cat.

0:25:480:25:50

What is it? Persian. Correct.

0:25:500:25:52

Right, OK, what's the link?

0:25:520:25:54

So, it could be carpets, I suppose.

0:25:540:25:56

All I can think of is cats and carpets. We've had cats, so...

0:25:560:25:59

So, yeah, can we go for carpets, please?

0:25:590:26:01

Is the link carpets?

0:26:010:26:03

APPLAUSE

0:26:050:26:06

The remaining clues were...

0:26:080:26:09

You got that on the first clue, which means you can cut four links.

0:26:120:26:15

Let's cut those three remaining links on the £1,000.

0:26:150:26:18

Which means, Fiona and Michael, with...

0:26:220:26:25

..£2,175, you're going through to the next round.

0:26:270:26:31

As are Ed and Angie.

0:26:310:26:32

However, that means Luke and Tom, we have to say goodbye.

0:26:320:26:35

-Thanks very much.

-Thanks.

0:26:350:26:37

It was a very equal contest. How do you feel?

0:26:370:26:40

I think we did all right on the questions.

0:26:400:26:42

-We weren't very good at the links.

-No, that's where we went down. Yeah.

0:26:420:26:45

Well, we have to say goodbye to you both. Thanks for playing.

0:26:450:26:48

APPLAUSE

0:26:480:26:49

Fiona and Michael and Ed and Angie, you're still in the game.

0:26:530:26:57

Fiona and Michael,

0:26:570:26:58

so far you've banked £2,175.

0:26:580:27:00

Ed and Angie, you banked £2,000.

0:27:020:27:06

That money is now in these two cash pods,

0:27:060:27:08

each suspended by seven links.

0:27:080:27:11

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

0:27:110:27:14

takes that money through to the final round.

0:27:140:27:16

The other team will be out.

0:27:160:27:17

Now, you can be as brave or as 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, place or thing

0:27:250:27:28

from a series of clues

0:27:280:27:30

and you tell me whether you want to play for

0:27:300:27:32

one, two, three or four links.

0:27:320:27:34

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

0:27:340:27:38

If you do not spot the link,

0:27:380:27:40

your opponents will see all the clues

0:27:400:27:42

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

0:27:420:27:45

Fiona and Michael, you've brought through the most money to this round,

0:27:450:27:49

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

0:27:490:27:52

-Shall we play first?

-Yeah, why not?

0:27:520:27:54

OK. Let's play.

0:27:540:27:56

Stand by. Round two.

0:27:590:28:01

The first question is asking...

0:28:010:28:03

How many links would you like to play for?

0:28:050:28:07

We should be cautious and go two.

0:28:070:28:08

-Yeah.

-Yeah. Can we go for two?

0:28:080:28:10

OK, for two links, who am I?

0:28:100:28:12

Here are your clues...

0:28:120:28:13

Who am I?

0:28:340:28:35

I think it's the Wicked Witch of the West.

0:28:350:28:36

It is. The Wicked Witch of the West.

0:28:360:28:38

Am I the Wicked Witch of the West?

0:28:380:28:40

APPLAUSE

0:28:410:28:42

Brilliant. The remaining clue was...

0:28:420:28:45

So, let's cut those links...

0:28:480:28:49

Leaving five.

0:28:520:28:54

Ed and Angie, your question will be asking...

0:28:540:28:56

How many links would you like to play for?

0:28:580:29:01

Shall we go for two links?

0:29:020:29:04

-Two. Yeah.

-We'll go for two links as well.

0:29:040:29:07

Right. What am I? Here are your clues...

0:29:070:29:10

What am I?

0:29:280:29:29

-Well, it's got to be a pumpkin, hasn't it?

-Yeah, it's easy.

0:29:290:29:32

-Got to be, yeah.

-Yeah.

0:29:320:29:33

I never knew they had green seeds. But we're going pumpkin.

0:29:330:29:35

Am I a pumpkin?

0:29:350:29:37

APPLAUSE

0:29:370:29:38

Yeah.

0:29:380:29:39

The remaining clues were...

0:29:390:29:41

Good soup!

0:29:450:29:46

-Yes.

-Right, let's cut those links.

0:29:460:29:48

Leaving five.

0:29:510:29:53

Fiona and Michael, it's your turn now.

0:29:530:29:55

Your question will be asking...

0:29:550:29:57

How many links would you like to play for?

0:29:590:30:01

-Are you feeling lucky? Yeah?

-Yeah, do you want to go for three?

0:30:010:30:04

-Not really.

-OK, do you want to go for two, then?

-Let's go for two again.

0:30:040:30:07

For two links: who am I? Here are your clues.

0:30:070:30:10

-Who am I?

-It's an '80s figure, clearly.

0:30:260:30:29

-Or '70s.

-Or, yeah, '70s.

-I think by the '80s...

0:30:290:30:33

Presumably he was, erm, some sort of...

0:30:330:30:37

-I don't know, could it be, erm...

-Need an answer, please.

0:30:370:30:40

-..Nelson Mandela?

-Am I Nelson Mandela?

0:30:400:30:43

APPLAUSE

0:30:440:30:45

Oh, wow.

0:30:450:30:47

Yeah, that was sudden, Michael, and you were right.

0:30:470:30:49

The remaining clue was:

0:30:490:30:51

Let's cut those links.

0:30:570:30:58

Leaving three. Ed and Angie, your turn now.

0:31:010:31:03

Your question will be asking:

0:31:030:31:05

who am I? How many links would you like to play for?

0:31:050:31:08

-We'll go with two. Again.

-Yeah. We're being a bit safe.

0:31:080:31:12

For two links, who am I? Here are your clues.

0:31:120:31:14

ABBA. Yeah.

0:31:250:31:27

Who am I?

0:31:310:31:32

-You want to go for it, Angie?

-We're going to sing it. ABBA.

0:31:320:31:34

-ABBA.

-Yeah.

-Am I ABBA?

0:31:340:31:36

-APPLAUSE

-Yeah. The remaining clue was:

0:31:370:31:40

Well done. Let's cut those links.

0:31:430:31:45

Leaving you with three,

0:31:470:31:49

equal with Fiona and Michael, whose turn it is next.

0:31:490:31:52

Your question will be asking:

0:31:520:31:55

who am I? How many links would you like to play for?

0:31:550:31:58

Again, two or three?

0:31:580:31:59

If we went for three, we'd immediately get through, but...

0:31:590:32:02

-Do you want to risk it?

-Yeah. We'll go for three.

0:32:020:32:05

OK. For three links, who am I? Here are your clues.

0:32:050:32:08

Who am I?

0:32:220:32:23

The only Noel Coward film I've ever seen was Brief Encounter,

0:32:230:32:26

and I can't remember the name of the actress or actor in it.

0:32:260:32:29

Erm... So presumably it's a woman actress from that time.

0:32:290:32:32

Shall we guess someone like Audrey Hepburn, do you think, or...?

0:32:320:32:36

-Not in the '40s.

-Need an answer, please.

0:32:360:32:38

Erm, Grace Kelly?

0:32:390:32:41

Grace Kelly?

0:32:410:32:42

Am I Grace Kelly?

0:32:420:32:43

No, which means, Ed and Angie, you have the chance to nick a link.

0:32:450:32:48

You will now see the remaining clues for a chance to cut a single

0:32:480:32:51

link from your cash pod.

0:32:510:32:53

Richard Attenborough.

0:32:590:33:01

-Who am I?

-It's Richard Attenborough.

-Am I Richard Attenborough?

0:33:030:33:08

APPLAUSE

0:33:080:33:09

Yes. Sadly lately departed, Richard Attenborough.

0:33:090:33:13

So, you have nicked a link.

0:33:130:33:14

Let's cut it from your cash pod, leaving two links,

0:33:140:33:18

and it's your turn now.

0:33:180:33:20

Ed and Angie, your question will be asking:

0:33:200:33:22

who am I? How many links would you like to play for?

0:33:220:33:27

We want to play for the two links that we've got left.

0:33:270:33:29

For two links, here are your clues.

0:33:290:33:31

Who am I?

0:33:450:33:46

-As the hero next door?

-Welsh? "My theme song describes me..."

0:33:460:33:51

Shall we go with...?

0:33:510:33:52

Quick, anyone in Wales. Who's Welsh?

0:33:520:33:55

Tom Co... Tom Jones.

0:33:550:33:57

No, it weren't '87. Oh! Oh, don't know.

0:33:570:34:02

-Tom Jones.

-No, you're out of time, which means, Fiona

0:34:020:34:04

and Michael, you have a chance to nick a link.

0:34:040:34:07

Here is the remaining clue.

0:34:070:34:09

-Who am I?

-It's Fireman Sam.

-Am I Fireman Sam?

0:34:110:34:14

-APPLAUSE

-Yep. So, Fiona and Michael,

0:34:150:34:18

the tables have turned.

0:34:180:34:21

You've nicked a link. Let's cut that link from your pod.

0:34:210:34:24

That's backfired our riskiness.

0:34:260:34:28

-Ed and Angie have thrown you a lifeline there.

-My heart's going.

0:34:280:34:31

However, it's now your turn, and your question will be asking:

0:34:310:34:35

what am I? How many links would you like to play for?

0:34:350:34:39

-Two?

-Yeah, two.

-Two, please.

0:34:390:34:41

OK. For two links, what am I? Here are your clues.

0:34:410:34:44

-It's Cornwall.

-What am I?

-OK.

-This is Cornwall.

-Am I Cornwall?

0:35:000:35:05

-APPLAUSE

-Yes. The remaining clue was:

0:35:070:35:09

So, let's cut those links.

0:35:110:35:14

Which means...

0:35:170:35:19

APPLAUSE

0:35:200:35:22

..Fiona and Michael, with £2,175, you're through to the final round,

0:35:220:35:26

and that cash goes with you.

0:35:260:35:28

Unfortunately, that means we have to say goodbye to Ed and Angie.

0:35:280:35:31

You were a really good team.

0:35:310:35:32

Well, we were all right till Pontypandy came up.

0:35:320:35:35

Yeah, it wasn't really your area, was it, children's cartoons?

0:35:350:35:38

-Not at my age.

-I love Fireman Sam. Yeah, great!

0:35:380:35:42

You played a great game, but it's time to say goodbye.

0:35:420:35:45

-BOTH:

-Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:35:450:35:48

Fiona and Michael, you are today's finalists, and how are you feeling?

0:35:490:35:53

-Nervous.

-Yeah, very nervous.

0:35:530:35:55

Well, you've made some good decisions so far,

0:35:550:35:58

because you've brought £2,175 through to the super-link round,

0:35:580:36:03

and we're adding £2,000 to that, so today you're playing for £4,175.

0:36:030:36:10

APPLAUSE

0:36:100:36:13

If you win, what would you do with it?

0:36:130:36:16

Well, in two weeks' time, I'm on a flight to New Zealand,

0:36:160:36:19

so it won't hurt to have a bit more money to go towards that.

0:36:190:36:23

-Michael?

-I'm currently working in the community,

0:36:230:36:25

and my next placement is also there so I'd spend it on a car

0:36:250:36:28

so I can get round and see my patients.

0:36:280:36:30

So it's going to be transport-based.

0:36:300:36:32

To take that money home, you have just 60 seconds

0:36:320:36:35

to find six super-links.

0:36:350:36:37

At each level, you'll have to identify the link between ten clues.

0:36:370:36:41

As soon as you think you know the answer, buzz,

0:36:410:36:43

and we'll stop the clock.

0:36:430:36:44

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

0:36:440:36:48

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

0:36:480:36:52

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

0:36:520:36:54

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

0:36:540:36:57

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

0:36:570:37:00

So, who's going to play first?

0:37:000:37:02

-Did we agree I would?

-Yep, go on.

-OK. It's me.

0:37:020:37:06

"Did we agree I would"! Yeah, OK, then.

0:37:060:37:08

Fiona, you're on your own. No conferring.

0:37:080:37:10

The clock will start when you see the first clue.

0:37:100:37:13

Let's see if you can find the link.

0:37:130:37:14

-Are you ready?

-Yeah.

-Good.

0:37:140:37:16

Characters on Sesame Street?

0:37:330:37:35

Is the link characters on Sesame Street?

0:37:350:37:38

-APPLAUSE

-Yeah!

0:37:380:37:41

The Count - one! - and the other - two! - were Big Bird and Elmo.

0:37:410:37:45

Yeah. Sesame Street characters. Right, that puts you on...

0:37:450:37:48

-£125.

-APPLAUSE

0:37:480:37:52

Fiona and Michael, with 49 seconds remaining on the clock,

0:37:520:37:55

you now have a choice.

0:37:550:37:56

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

0:37:560:37:59

-Let's play on.

-We'd be a fool to go, yeah.

-Let's play on.

-OK, then.

0:37:590:38:03

Michael, you're on your own. No conferring.

0:38:030:38:05

The clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:38:050:38:07

These are all dances.

0:38:160:38:18

Is the link dances?

0:38:180:38:20

-APPLAUSE

-Yeah.

0:38:210:38:23

The remaining dances are:

0:38:260:38:28

That puts you on...

0:38:320:38:34

-APPLAUSE

-..£300.

0:38:340:38:36

You have 42 seconds remaining on the clock.

0:38:360:38:38

You have the choice to take that money and go or you can play on.

0:38:380:38:41

-Let's play on.

-Yeah.

-Got more than ten seconds for each one.

0:38:410:38:44

-Yeah.

-OK, Fiona. Your turn now. No conferring.

0:38:440:38:47

The clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:38:470:38:49

-You ready, Fiona?

-Yeah.

-Good.

0:38:490:38:51

They're all American TV programmes.

0:39:030:39:05

Is the link American TV programmes?

0:39:050:39:08

-Oh!

-It's a specific genre, sitcom.

0:39:110:39:13

-I know.

-OK. The remaining sitcoms were:

0:39:130:39:18

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

0:39:210:39:25

33 seconds. The clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:39:250:39:30

-You ready?

-Yeah.

-Good. OK, then.

0:39:300:39:32

They're all cities in the UK?

0:39:430:39:46

Is the link cities in the UK?

0:39:460:39:48

No, they're all castles. The remaining castles were:

0:39:490:39:53

Right, which means play stays with you, Fiona.

0:39:570:40:00

You face a new super-link. You have 25 seconds left.

0:40:000:40:04

The clock will restart when the first clue appears. You ready?

0:40:040:40:07

Yeah.

Is the link Meryl Streep films?

0:40:240:40:26

-APPLAUSE

-Good. The final two were:

0:40:270:40:29

Well done. That puts you on...

0:40:330:40:35

-..£500.

-APPLAUSE

0:40:360:40:38

With 14 seconds remaining on the clock,

0:40:380:40:40

you can take that money and go or play on.

0:40:400:40:42

What are you going to do?

0:40:420:40:44

It gives me two decent shots at run-throughs. Shall we go?

0:40:440:40:47

-Came with nothing. Shall we risk it?

-Might as well leave with nothing.

0:40:470:40:50

Could be a bit more positive.

0:40:500:40:52

-Come on, Michael! I believe in you!

-We'll go for the next one.

0:40:520:40:55

OK, Michael. Fiona believes in you, and it's your turn now.

0:40:550:40:59

The clock will restart when the first clue appears. You ready?

0:40:590:41:02

-Yep.

-Good. Stand by.

0:41:020:41:04

Types of apple?

0:41:200:41:21

Is the link types of apple?

0:41:210:41:23

No. They're American state nicknames.

0:41:250:41:28

Well, nothing it is.

0:41:280:41:29

Aloha, Bluegrass, Golden, Empire, Sunshine.

0:41:290:41:32

Michael, that means play stays with you and you face a new super-link.

0:41:320:41:36

With one second left, the clock will restart when the first clue appears.

0:41:360:41:40

-OK, Michael. Good luck...

-LAUGHTER

0:41:400:41:43

Actresses...

0:41:480:41:50

Is the link actresses?

0:41:500:41:53

The link we were looking for: Star Trek characters.

0:41:570:42:00

The remaining characters were:

0:42:000:42:03

..Hikaru Sulu, Leonard McCoy...

0:42:090:42:12

Are you a Trekkie?

0:42:130:42:14

I wouldn't have got it until James Kirk,

0:42:140:42:16

and even then I'd have been lucky. Spock would've cemented it.

0:42:160:42:19

-You wouldn't have got it with Uhura?

-I'd have guessed it at Chekov.

0:42:190:42:22

No. No.

0:42:220:42:24

Fiona and Michael, I'm afraid that you leave with nothing,

0:42:240:42:27

which is a real shame, because you played really well.

0:42:270:42:30

-Oh!

-Oh, well!

-Oh, well. It was a good experience.

0:42:300:42:33

-It was a lot of fun.

-Where did you think it went wrong?

0:42:330:42:36

I didn't get the states. The apples...

0:42:360:42:39

He spent the whole week texting me revising US state names!

0:42:390:42:42

I looked at US state capitals.

0:42:430:42:46

-I didn't look at the nicknames.

-Yeah.

0:42:460:42:47

If it had been capitals I would have nailed it. Bang.

0:42:470:42:50

-Good luck with Hellrunner. Good luck with New Zealand.

-Thank you.

0:42:500:42:54

Thank you, Fiona and Michael, for playing The Link.

0:42:540:42:56

0:42:560:42:57
