University mhm there were sort of parodies of French poetry and then you sort of became you became part of a movement I mean quite often movement serves retrospectively decided upon but you were though you're part of the the Merseyside the beat poet we didn't see it as a movement you know in a sense it was just it's what we were doing best and remember I was reading a lot of poetry at the time and became a teacher back in in Liverpool and the poetry I could see around me didn't really interest the kids so I gave them the poems that I was writing the poems about football about yeah grandma about countries beginning with CFR I enjoyed those and I realized that maybe I was a poet there we are never look back right now Roger we are looking for countries that begin with the with these letters all right Rwanda Rwanda says Roger Rwanda let's see if that's right let's see how many about 100 people that said Rwanda it is right very nice that yeah that's actually in Africa as well which is nice and it rhymes with a lot that's quite handy quite a nice country for a poet yeah have a gander at Rwanda well I went to around us or a panda no you were eating Xander now Cathy hi welcome back to the show now listen Cathy last time you were on yes last time you know you were very flirty and you walked out with it with a spring in our step when did you at what stage did you start writing on applications to things where it said occupation did you write author when did you think for the first time I am actually no I am now this is what I now do this is my living well I wrote my first book when I was seventeen actually about growing up as a surfer girl in Australia because the boys I grew up with just proved the theory of evolution they're evolving into Apes you know for example these two gets to cut the names out and paper and sticky tape them to our stomachs and then sun-baked so we get a tan tattoo in the shape of their names so yes I did start very young no Cathy what would you like to go for which country would you like to name well I used to go out with a man called Chad so I think I'll go for Chad because not many people I don't think know that that is actually a place in Africa okay Chad says Cathy let's see how many about 100 people said Chad it's right 20s our only score at this point [Applause] well played Kathy that rhymes with even more Chad with my dad yeah he's bad yeah that was bit yeah thank you very much indeed Richard now mo welcome to pointers welcome back I should say have another another book end would be audacious of me to

jellyfish if it's that's your name well professor a jellyfish of its be returning is unlikely countries countries beginning with these letters yes I'm going to go for American Samoa said with such confidence yeah well I tell you for why is because I watched a film called next goal wins and it's one of the most wonderful documentaries ever and it's about the American Samoan football team at any stage in the documentary did they mentioned whether or not the UN recognized Americans I don't know we'll find out we'll find out okay American Samoa says Emma let's see if it's right listen you broke out of Africa and that's what happens oh I'm sorry that's cause you're 100 points sorry yeah it's an American territory I'm afraid but I will say Mexico wins genuinely one of the greatest documentaries I've ever seen oh it's unbelievable you can hate sport it is an unbelievable documentary isn't it it's goal wins yeah brilliant thank you very much so good Richard thank you Briony hi welcome to pointless lovely to have you here now Bryan you've done some audacious things in your career as a journalist I'm thinking for example you have set off in a dinghy from Scotland and set sail for the Arctic Circle yes yeah that was pretty punchy just for just just to write an article I mean I didn't have anything else to do why not and it was a glorified dinghy it was a rib still it was the first time anyone had done it would you believe it amazing nobody thought to do how long did it take you two weeks Wow what do water noise yeah we went to the Lofoten Islands now Briony what would you like to go for okay I'm gonna go with Fiji Fiji says Briony Fiji let's see if that's right let's see how many about 100 people said Fiji there it is now starts with the round so far Brian TiVo role played begins with F yes if you think about it I was like most of us have yes like a lot of us have yeah Richard well we're halfway through the round let's take a look at those scores as they stand nine was our low score in that pass well done briny and Terry looking very strong at this point Kathy and Kate looking pretty good on 11 as well then up to 20 Roger and Benjamin and then up to 100 Emma and John I'm afraid I'm afraid you're ahead of the field there John a low score from you would be nice but let's see if it's going to be enough we're gonna come back down the line now in the second place please step up to the podium so there we are Terry now remember we are looking for any country whose name begins with the letters afri or C but Terry first huge welcome to pointless did you ever ever ever in your wildest dreams imagined that Horrible Histories would be the huge huge be amorphous become yes authors are supposed to say humbly oh no but when you're an author in your write a book you always imagined it's the best book ever written so of course you do say I've got to be honest no no that's perfect that's exactly how I approach every TV program licking wounds all the way back home but there we are in your case it absolutely worked to our favorite period of history is the one period that you think is just rich comic territory I'm not a historian I'm a children's author and so people always ask me this question and they're all dirty and disgusting foul and filthy terrible food and so I like the age I grew up with the 1950s and I once explained this to little girl and she said the night is that the Middle Ages [Laughter] Terry listen there you are a nine if you could score 90 or less you are into the next round ninety or less all we need is a country that begins with one of these letters or would you like to go for I play fairly safe and goal for Cuba Cuba says Terry Cuba here is your red line if you get below that you're through how many about 100 people said Cuba it's right and you are through very nicely played Terry safely through there 19 points good score and podium for very good on off clever special yes thank you now John yes welcome welcome to pointers are you written comedy I'm the way you've written all sorts of things not just coffee yeah you've written across the spectrum mm-hm I'm just trying to think you've written in aardman film directing run you've co-written an award-winning production on Broadway I've got a musical on Broadway at the moment yeah which I co-wrote tastic Brian II got a boat went to the 13 islands as part of her accession you've actually stood for Parliament twice yeah yeah and I think I did as well there as we're gonna do here today so you know by election yes could you maintain another election as it were I might do again at some point but it sets a yeah let's see yeah let's see if I'm get to pointless first okay okay what one step at a time John okay there you are you are the high scorers I'm afraid on ahead we need a low school from you obviously I bet there are some pointless answers I'm there might be some close to pointless anyway out there yeah I'm nervous about this one but we're we've got up I've got a co for something lo I'm gonna go for Cape Verde or Cabo Verde as I think I always call them what they like to be called let's see how many about 100 people said capo very no red lines as I say as you're the high scores it's right I think is give you a low what John it's cause you absolutely nothing and it leaves your total at 100 points there you see you get a foot on fan on the show this is what happens it's something no one scores anything it used to be the Cape Verde Islands now Cabo Verde that's why they call it and it's it's a terrific stuff here we are Kate welcome to the show welcome now you were a publisher before your writer yes poacher turned gamekeeper would your advice be to aspiring writers who are watching now if the advice Pippi advice I'm not known for pithy advice my books are you know like this and it sounds ridiculous but the only thing is you've got to write you know if you had a quit for everybody who came up to you and told you about the book they were going to write yeah everybody watching all you can do doesn't matter how long you've got just put a pad by the kettle pen by the kettle just describe what the smoke looks like when it's coming out the kettle and then you can say everyday you're a writer but if you wait till you've got the time to write that novel that plate you'll never do it well said look around I sort of never believed it was going to happen so I just know it's really hard to get going but once you're going you're on your way yeah very good indeed now you're all eleven the high school has remained John and Emma on 100 which means 88 or less is your target what would you like to go for I'm going to go for Cameroon Cameroon says Kate Cameroon here is your red line do you get below that with Cameroon you're through to the next round how many about 100 people said Cameroon through that [Applause] 31 very well played Kate very nice on sir the only country in the world that's an anagram of macaroon Benjamin welcome back welcome back now as a troublemaker self-confessed troublemaker you know you're a dub poet there was fire in the belly of the things you wrote your now you know there you're listed by the times as one of the 50 most important post-war writers you're now a professor a Brunel I mean you know you're very much at the heart of the establishment now Benjamin did you ever did you ever imagine this was going to happen it's interesting you know some people say you know you'd become part of the establishment and there's lots of the establishment that I reject but to a certain extent I think what I do I want to inspire other people so if that inspires other people then so be it you know I think creative people can get their creativity from so many places but the most important place is yourself yeah about inspiring people it's not about the qualifications you have and therefore it doesn't necessarily mean this from the background that you have no no indeed but I suppose he's good to you the establishment is a better place now then because it has it has you amongst it doing Redman what would you like to go for Benjamin well it's interesting or the one that I fancied of being taken so I'm going to go for ivory coast ivory coast ivory coast says Benjamin here is your red line if you get below that red line nice and high you are through to round two let's see how many about 100 people said ivory coast there you go six-six our second air store after the round 26 of your closer very well played Benjamin that's another one like birthing Cabo Verde in that so they call themself cook did while we sort of Ivory Coast begins with CRI whichever way you look at it anyway so a great answer now great point us answer from John there is only one pointless answer on the whole board and that's Cabo Verde so very very well played John black other low score is you could have had to for the Comoros Islands you would have had for for Costa Rica five for Andorra you'd have got seven for Congo and site briseida got eight for Croatia Antigua and Barbuda let's take a look at the top three scores the ones that most of our 100 people said when we

Valley how green was my Valley says Terry let's see how many about 100 people said how green was my Valley 72 for our green with my yeah of the three new their Terry you pick the middle one actually you did well to avoid a pretty and pink that's the big scorer Christian pink would have scored you 91 points my Blue Heaven would have been a better answer than you would have scored you 43 and the way I think of it as a brown violin they just call the film the violin laughing it's called you don't know that one my red violin it's called the red violin Wow two points that very well done if you said that there's a story of a red violin yeah thank you very much Richard well we're halfway through the round let's take a look at those scores 14 is where we find Cathy and Kate lovely low scoring
