Hi, welcome to Ooo! Ooo! Do You Think You Are?
My name's Ed and I'm a primate.
But what kind of primate?
If I'm going to find out whether I'm more man or monkey,
I'm going to need to speak to an expert...
..before I go bananas.
First up, we have prosimians, like lemurs or lorises.
They have prominent noses.
Yeah, all right, mate!
And a well-developed sense of smell.
Ugh! Sounds like me.
But they can't move their upper lip and they can see in the dark.
No. I need to use the torch on my phone to find the bathroom
when I'm having a late night pee-pee.
Too much information.
Not at all, you've barely even started.
Next up, we have monkeys, such as baboons, tamarins and langurs.
Like these chaps here.
They're much larger, with longer legs and forearms.
And they have prominent buttock pads.
I've been called a cheeky monkey before,
but not a butt cheeky monkey.
-And they also have tails.
So it seems you're probably an ape.
Like a gorilla, a chimpanzee or like these gibbons here.
They're much larger, walk on two legs
-and they don't have any tails at all.
And they're usually quite clever.
Oh. Well, three out of four isn't bad. I do feel quite human.
Well, humans are a type of ape too.
Oh! Oh, thanks, mate.
Or should I say, pri-MATE?
Yes, well, you'll find out more
at the Endangered Primate Rescue Centre in Vietnam.
Great, can't wait to go there.
Well, you're here already.
Oh, that was quick.
I'd better look around.
Ooo-ooo! Ooo-ooo! Ooo-ooo!
Ooo-ooo! Ooo-ooo! Ooo-ooo!
I guess Ed's allowed to go ape every once in awhile.
And there's no better place to do it than here
at the Endangered Primate Rescue Centre,
where they've looked after
over 300 of the little tree huggers since 1991.
Gibbons, langurs and lorises are becoming endangered due to hunting.
But at this centre, they nurse them back to full health.
And when ready, release them back into the wild.
Time to speak to an expert who knows all about the APE-B-Cs of primates.
Hello there, hello.
Oh, are we interviewing a loris?
-No, I'm just talking to Sonia. Hello, Sonia.
-So, why are all these guys here?
-Well, they're all endangered.
-Yeah, so they come here and we take in around 20 animals a year
and we nurse them back to full health.
And can I take Cucu home with me?
-No, they make terrible pets.
Lorises are poisonous.
They make a poison in a gland on their arm and then they lick that
with their tongue and it coats their mouth before they bite.
-Very similar attributes to you, actually.
-Quite similar to me.
-Who looks after them?
-We have lots of expert keepers here
who clean, feed and pamper them.
-Fancy doing a bit of primate pampering?
-Yeah, all right.
Job one, cleaning up poo!
I think you've drawn the short straw.
Look, it's the Fart Ninja picking up poo.
-There's another one, Ricky.
I'm really good at finding poo for Ricky to clean up with a scraper.
-There's some more here as well.
-Oh, they've defecated there too?
-That's an old one, it's gone a bit smelly.
I tell you what, there's a lot of leaves to sweep up
-and bits of old food.
-Yeah, I think I'm done actually, mate.
I don't think you are.
I totally trod in one.
You did this. You did this.
Both of you together, teamwork.
Ricky, guess what I've found.
Is it a book of stamps?
Job two - primate party!
So, what do we do now, Sonia?
Every day, we give the primates loads of things to play with.
-Right, let's have a primate party!
Party time, guys.
-There actually is a bit of poo up here that I have missed.
Seems to be in working order.
I'll set up the turntables and the speakers.
Job three - happy gibbon fun times!
Release the gibbons!
-Oh, they're afraid of you.
-Oh, don't be afraid of me.
If you want to do any pooing, Ricky loves cleaning it up.
I like cleaning up the poo-poo. So, what are these guys' names?
-Milo and Xuc Xich.
-Milo and Xuc Xich. What does Xuc Xich mean?
-It's sausage in Vietnamese.
-These poor little guys are endangered.
Ohh! Endangered, and look at you.
Look at that. Look, look, he's trying to get off the seesaw.
-You can do it... yes, nailed it!
Whoa, that one nearly kicked me in the face.
He's so cute. He's like a proper little person, look at him.
Fun time. We can't both go on it.
-Where are the gibbons going to go?
-You get on, we'll show them
-how to do it. Look how fun this is.
-Look at this. Whoa!
-Look at that.
-That one's coming over.
That's right, now that's how you feed a gibbon.
Sorry, that's all the food gone now.
All good parties must come to an end.
-Stay in touch, yeah?
Oh, you can't come out here.
You know, it's really fun finding out the APE-B-Cs
of what make primates happy.
It's amazing to think we're not so different from these guys. Just 1%.
Ooo-ooo! Ooo-ooo! Ooo-ooo!
What a view!
What an amazing camping spot.
-I told you, you can see the whole of Ulaanbaatar.
-But are you sure we're allowed to camp here?
The law states that any Mongolian is about entitled to a bit of land
if he needs to pitch a tent or something.
OK. Two things.
-Firstly, we're not Mongolian.
And secondly, this is the Zaisan Memorial.
It's one of the most famous landmarks in Ulaanbaatar.
Surely we're not going to be allowed to camp here.
-Another good point. It's probably a bit windy as well.
Shall we just pack up, head off,
and I'm sure we'll find somewhere else to camp.
I don't know how this packs up.
Well, you'll just have to carry it then. But Ed is right.
Any Mongolian can demand a small piece of land
to pitch their tent,
which is called a ger. And people take their gers
from place to place. That means they're nomadic.
In fact, around 30% of people in Mongolia
still live this way.
Ulaanbaatar actually began life as a moving capital
before it finally settled down here.
So I wonder if Ed and Ben will find somewhere to put their tent.
Perfect, look how big this place is.
We can definitely camp out here.
I don't know, Ed, it's kind of feels like it's already in use.
No, it'll be absolutely fine.
-Let's try somewhere else.
Ed and Ben,
you have 43 seconds to find out
as much as you can about Ulaanbaatar.
Ed, you have Ochir, who knows all about the city's history.
Ben, you have Ishdorj, who knows all about its amazing temple.
So you'd better hurry up and get there.
What? I need to find that temple!
Find out if we can pitch our tent there.
This place is really cool. What actually is it?
It's the Choijin Lama's temple.
How many people live in Ulaanbaatar?
# About a million and .3 people live there. #
It looks really old. When was it built?
Between 1904 and 1908.
When was the city founded?
# 1639! #
So, who used to live here, then, nomads?
No, the Choijin Lama lived here.
-How many times did the city move?
-# Around 25 times. #
So, what can we see here?
You can see temples, a collection of masks
and there's a shield wall, which is quite impressive, if you ask me.
It's over there, right there.
When did it change its name? HOOTER
Oh, out of time.
Do you know anywhere I can pitch this tent?
# You can't pitch it here. #
And the person who found out the most facts is...
Get in! When it comes to Ulaanbaatar,
I'm Ulaan-better than you, Ed.
Yeah, all right, all right. Did you find out the most important thing?
-Yes, I know exactly where to pitch our tent.
-Is it here?
-Oh, I like it here.
-It's nice, isn't it?
Don't worry, I learned enough to give you a quick tour. Sound good?
-Come on then.
This is the temple of Amgalan.
The temple of Manarajas.
The temple of Zuu, based on Tibetan architecture.
The temple of Yadam.
And last but not least,
-this one is the main temple.
-Can we pitch our tent here?
-And we definitely can't pitch it here?
It's too mask-y.
-A shield wall.
-Let me guess, too shield wall-y.
Getting the hang of it.
And this Mongolian ger.
And that concludes our tour.
And we're no closer to finding somewhere to pitch our tent.
Well, actually, this is a bit of a clue. Follow me.
And follow the nomads to what is known as the Ger District.
Living in gers can be tough.
There's no running water, proper toilets or heating.
They are lined with layers of felt.
One layer in the summer, two in the winter.
But temperatures can still drop to -25 degrees in January.
I can't believe how many people live in his gers.
They're just like big, round tents, aren't they?
I know, and wait till you see inside one.
You're not just going to knock and invite yourself in, are you?
No, I'm not even going to knock.
In fact, it's considered impolite to knock on the door of ger.
You just what walk straight in. Watch.
Feels a bit weird.
-This is so cosy.
-I like what you've done with the place.
-Thanks very much. Make yourself at home.
-Wow, thank you.
You know, Ed, I've been thinking...
About somewhere we can pitch our tent?
Ah, this is the life.
I feel so nomadic.
Get your lovely Shanghai souvenirs here.
If you love Shanghai, don't be shy,
there's lots of cheap tat that you can buy.
Am I in the right place for a guided tour of Shanghai?
-Shanghai, which literally means city on the sea?
Shanghai, China's largest city, with a population of over 24 million?
Shanghai, which lies on the Yangtze River Delta
at the end of its 5,500-mile journey to the Pacific Ocean?
Wow, you really know your stuff!
Well, they don't call me Mr Shanghai for nothing.
What do they call you, then?
No, I mean they do call me that.
Look. Let me show you around.
# The sun is shining in Shanghai
# You need to see the sights of this great city
# During the course of this ditty
# I'm the guy, Mr Shanghai
# To show you why
# Stroll along this avenue
# And just admire the view
# It's called The Bund
# And this famous waterfront
# Is on the west bank of
# The River Huangpu
# Mr Shanghai, please tell me why
# There is such different architecture than you'd expect
# Yeah, where's it all come from?
# Because, you see, this great city
# It was a trading port for centuries
# Different countries built their buildings here
# Mr Shanghai
# What is your first impression
# Of the old French Concession?
# As buildings go The style's known as Art Deco
# It's the birthplace of the Communist Party
# Circular bridge in Pudong
# Escape the traffic's throng
# It's pretty neat
# Built 20 feet above the street
# And from the bridge
# You can see the Shanghai Tower
# Ah, ah, ah!
# Mr Shanghai
# Yuyuan Gardens and bazaar
# Hopes come from near and far
# Six different sections
# That upon closer inspection
# Were designed back in the Ming Dynasty
# Dee-dee, dee
# The centrepiece of the park
# This Exquisite Jade Rock
# Has no-one told ya
# All about this giant boulder?
# It was meant for the palace in Beijing
# Saved from a ship that was sinking
# Mr Shanghai, you've told me why
# And now I've seen the sights of Shanghai with my own eyes
# I can't go wrong
# There's so much to do
# In Shanghai, you know it's true
# Check the sights that we've shown you
# Pretty sure you'll love them, too
# The tour is over. #
-All right, Naomi?
-Oh, what are you doing here?
Well, it's a funny story, actually,
I was enjoying a packet of my favourite chocolate nuts and...
-..I only got the last golden ticket! What are the chances, eh?
Hold on, this is supposed to be about Naomi
and the Balinese nut factory.
I was going to be the first to go in there and discover
all about the secrets of this factory and this mysterious nut.
-Are you allergic?
If you are, you probably really ought not to go inside.
So you stay here with all your...germs,
I'll go in there on my own and I will report back.
No, cashew, it's the name of the nut they process in this factory. Oi!
No, you're not getting rid of me! Oi! Let me in!
-I'm Nyoman and this is work experience.
I hate work. And is it hard work processing cashews?
-It's very hard work.
-How many nuts are we talking a day?
-About three tonnes a day.
Better get started then, hadn't we?
Because you know what they say - cashews don't grow on trees!
-Actually, the cashew grows on the trees.
-That's what I meant.
-Cashews grow on trees.
In at number one...
The cashew nuts fall from the apple trees.
Farmers collect them from the ground,
then they're dried for two days.
-Oh. Oh, it's grading, that.
Which means the nuts are sorted into different sizes.
The cashews are dried.
-Which gets rid of the shell.
Roasting, so the skin can peel easier.
Some bagging and boxing.
Which means...at nine...
Top of the chomps, it's tasting!
-Would you like to try it?
-Lovely, yes, thank you very much.
Hey, Ed, did you see that room that said "Popcorn Flavour Testing"?
-Come on, let's go and take a sneaky peek.
-What? No, that was off-limits.
You don't know what kind of nuts might be in there!
Time to play...
I'm going to ask you questions about this factory's cashew
and popcorn mix.
You get them wrong, we crank up the tension
until the popcorn cannon lets off with a massive explosion! Ready?
Well, no, not really. I don't think this is a good game to play at all.
Good! Question one, what's this flavour of cashew?
Mm! It's delicious and salty. Sea salt.
-You have to speak up, it's very noisy in here.
-I said, sea salt.
Yes, cheesy salt. That's wrong!
BUZZER The actual flavour is sea salt.
-Oh, is it?
-You probably don't even know that cashew shells contain
a resin that can burn you!
That's why they have to be treated in a process.
You ready, boys?
-Question two, what flavour is this brown cashew here?
-Ah! You're talking with your mouth full!
That's against the rules. BUZZER
But I can tell you that the cashew nut originated in Brazil.
You ready, boys?
Lucky again. Question three, what's this sweet and sticky flavour here?
-Cashew and caramel.
-I said you have to speak up, this is a factory!
-But I will take your answer of meat paste and shrimp flavour...
..which is absurd! And wrong! Wrong again!
And did you know that cashews are very good for your heart? Yes.
-You know what isn't good for your heart?
-Standing anywhere near you?
No, this. Let her have it, boys!
LOUD POP, SHE YELPS
I mean, goodbye!
Come on, Inel, this is the top circus in Cambodia,
-it's where all the best acrobats perform.
-Yeah! Well, it looks cool.
But you ain't going to catch me doing any somersaults like a clown.
-Too cool for that.
All right, me lady, to the circus.
-All right, sir!
Oh, choum reap sor.
Yes, that's right, WE are the top children's TV presenters.
-Oh, bless him! He wants an autograph.
-A couple of days in Cambodia and we're already famous.
-Oh! It was nice to meet you, too!
Looks like the circus have ended up with a pair of clowns.
This is Phare Circus in Siem Reap, in Cambodia,
but it's no ordinary circus.
You won't find any lion-tamers or sword swallowers,
just the country's top acrobatic performers.
Phare started in the city of Battambang, and today,
1,400 students study at their circus school.
At this school,
you're not going to be told off for standing on the chairs or boxes.
In fact, they encourage it.
-Look at that!
-I think we might have accidentally signed up for circus school.
Maybe he'll be able to help us.
-So, why is it that you've set up a circus school
here in Cambodia?
TRANSLATION: Well, the reason we set up a circus school in Cambodia is
because we went through a civil war
and there were a lot of orphaned children,
so we opened the school to give hope and education to the children.
So, it's a circus school. Does that mean it's all, like, clowning about?
No, it's not all about the clowns, it's about many techniques.
We do jumping and acrobatics.
We have teachers here to train you in the gym.
-OK, better get flexing your muscles, Inel.
-I can flex them all day, girl.
For today's main event, Inel and Victoria will be
put through their circus paces, performing a special routine.
They don't have long to practise, so break a leg, guys! Not really!
I mean, good luck!
-Flat hands. Tuck and roll.
-Tucks himself, roll.
-Aah! Oop, no.
Oh, keep it going!
Aah! Whoo-hoo! Fantastique!
Next tumble technique... Cartwheels.
Oh, nailed it, Inel!
-Inel needs a helping hand for the headstand.
-Ah, but the pressure's gone to Vic's head.
The most balls ever juggled at one time is 11.
I think our guys might struggle with two! Good luck!
Training is over for our amateur acrobats.
The big top is starting to fill up for tonight's performance.
There's just enough time for some clowny costume and make-up.
These amazing acrobats have spent years in training.
Vic and Inel have had about... one hour.
Oh, dear, this is going to be painful.
Victoria looks nervous, which is surprising,
given her circus history.
Didn't I read somewhere that you used to be a clown?
Yeah, I did, but I was so bad that the circus chucked us out.
You've got me worried now, Victoria,
because you and Inel will have to demonstrate the three basic
acrobatic disciplines you learned earlier - tumbling,
balancing and juggling, but also performance,
because it's the crowd's reaction that will decide today's winner.
Oh, can ex-circus clown Victoria shine second time round
in the big top?
It's time to face the music.
CARNIVAL MUSIC PLAYS
And I think Vic's playing this for laughs!
She's about to attempt her top tumble.
A cartwheel! Sort of...
Vic picks up three juggling balls. She's only mastered one in training.
SOME CHEERS AND APPLAUSE
I'm dreading this bit!
A big balancing act for the final flourish -
-a headstand with two glamorous assistants, and...
A skirt over her face to cover her embarrassment. Bravo, Victoria!
Let's see how Inel will perform.
First up, the tumble.
Oop, he's happy with that one! Next, a tricky cartwheel.
Ah, that's no' bad, actually.
Inel is trying a headstand without any assistance!
Can he push his legs into the full lock?
He... Yes, he can!
On the juggling, he's going for the big three. Can he do it?
But has Inel done enough to be the crowned clown today?
The crowd have made their decision.
TRANSLATION: And therefore,
the winner of the All Over The Place Asia Trophy is...Inel!
Ha-ha! I've always wanted one of these! Ha-ha!
You've been watching All Over The Place: Asia!
Ed Petrie and his CBBC mates take another amazing and offbeat journey around Asia. This time they discover a primate rescue centre in Vietnam, explore nomadic areas of Mongolia's capital, Ulaanbaatar, pay tribute to ELO in the Chinese city of Shanghai, go nuts at a cashew factory in Indonesia and accidently join the circus in Cambodia. Ed is joined on this bonkers road trip by Victoria Cook, Bobby Lockwood, Ricky Martin, Ben Shires, Inel Tomlinson and Naomi Wilkinson.
