We'll take part in some of Asia's most spectacular and crazy events.

0:00:190:00:24

Like the colourful Holi festival in India.

Indonesia.

Nusa Penida.

0:01:080:01:09

Roll up, roll up! Welcome to Wilkinson and Sons.

0:01:150:01:18

Sting like a fish.

0:01:180:01:20

We'll leave you gleaming like a dish.

0:01:200:01:21

Nice clean, shiny one and all.

0:01:210:01:23

Actually, my pits are a bit whiffy,

0:01:250:01:27

and I've got a meeting today with one of Bali's most famous fishy residents.

0:01:270:01:30

Excellent, sir. Step right this way.

0:01:300:01:31

We'll put some soapy suds under here and under there.

0:01:310:01:34

Complimentary breakfast, sir?

0:01:340:01:36

All part of the service here at Wilkinson and Son's cleaning station.

0:01:360:01:39

Wow, what a fantastic idea.

0:01:390:01:41

My mate, Ray, he visits one every day.

0:01:410:01:44

Who in the Indian Ocean is Ray?

0:01:440:01:46

Manta ray. You know, big slippery fella, lives underwater.

0:01:460:01:50

Come on! Least you don't smell like a fish no more,

0:01:500:01:53

else Ray and his mates might want to eat you.

0:01:530:01:56

SHE LAUGHS EVILLY

0:01:560:01:57

Looks like Naomi has cleaned up,

0:01:580:02:00

which is exactly what happens every day at these amazing manta ray

0:02:000:02:04

cleaning stations.

0:02:040:02:06

These giant rays enjoy a deep body scrub from lots of little fish that

0:02:060:02:10

nibble parasites from their skin.

0:02:100:02:12

Manta rays can reach up to seven metres in length.

0:02:120:02:15

That's longer than all of the Little Mix ladies combined,

0:02:150:02:18

but it's not "black magic".

0:02:180:02:20

Though, that having been said, they do look like big,

0:02:210:02:23

black magician's cloaks.

0:02:230:02:25

Manta actually means blanket in Spanish.

0:02:250:02:29

Top manta man Simon spells out the facts.

0:02:290:02:33

These seem huge.

0:02:330:02:34

What are we letting ourselves in for?

0:02:340:02:36

Oh, they are big.

0:02:360:02:37

I mean, they're big, squashed sharks, basically, same family and stuff,

0:02:370:02:40

but they're big.

0:02:400:02:42

They may be, these ones we see,

0:02:420:02:43

about one and a half metres to two metres wingspan.

0:02:430:02:46

They dangerous?

0:02:460:02:47

They're harmless. They're completely harmless.

0:02:470:02:49

I mean, they are part of the stingray family, but they don't have the sting

0:02:490:02:52

at the base of their tail any more. It's residual, they're fine.

0:02:520:02:55

-Good.

-But they're completely harmless, they're beautiful.

0:02:550:02:57

They've got the biggest brains of any of the fishes,

0:02:570:02:59

so they're really intelligent, and so they're quite inquisitive,

0:02:590:03:02

so if we're in the water, nice and calm,

0:03:020:03:04

they'll often just swim around us, just come in and have a look.

0:03:040:03:07

So, when we're in the water, we're going to be wearing snorkels.

0:03:070:03:09

-Mm-hm.

-Which is going to make speaking quite difficult.

0:03:090:03:11

Is there any way we can communicate with signs?

0:03:110:03:13

Yeah, we've got a few signs. So obviously - "everything is OK."

0:03:130:03:16

-OK.

-OK.

0:03:160:03:17

If we need to go up, you know, if we're going up,

0:03:170:03:20

-"we're going up" or something.

-So that's not OK.

0:03:200:03:22

-That's up.

-No, don't do the big thumbs up.

0:03:220:03:24

That's just, "We've got to get out of there." OK, so, "OK."

0:03:240:03:27

-OK.

-OK.

0:03:270:03:29

If you're feeling not too good, you're feeling a bit dodgy,

0:03:290:03:31

you've got a dodgy nose, dodgy ears or a bit of a dodgy stomach.

0:03:310:03:36

Oddly enough, I feel a bit dodgy on this boat actually.

0:03:360:03:39

What's sign language for "I'm going to throw up?"

0:03:390:03:41

I think that's a universal one, the...

0:03:410:03:43

-He's gone a bit of a funny colour, hasn't he?

-Yeah, he's gone a bit green.

0:03:450:03:48

Oh, dear, poor Ed!

0:03:480:03:49

Looks like you're having a nightmare of nature.

0:03:490:03:51

I guess Naomi is going to have to enjoy an awesome experience of a lifetime

0:03:510:03:55

without you.

0:03:550:03:57

-Yeah, whatever!

-This is Anna, Ed's replacement for the day.

0:03:570:04:00

She's going to keep me safe in the water.

0:04:000:04:02

Woo!

0:04:180:04:20

Whoa! They're huge!

0:04:240:04:27

This one's about double the size of Naomi!

0:04:270:04:29

NAOMI SQUEALS WITH EXCITEMENT

0:04:320:04:33

Naomi's doing the international flappy excited hand signal

0:04:370:04:40

that means she's seen a manta.

0:04:400:04:43

Naomi's doing the hand over mouth sign, which means,

0:04:450:04:48

"I can't believe what I'm seeing!"

0:04:480:04:50

It's absolutely enchanting. It just swam straight underneath me.

0:05:280:05:32

But I just found that in the water,

0:05:320:05:34

and that's exactly the thing it might accidentally eat,

0:05:340:05:37

so we'll take that home with us.

0:05:370:05:38

-Oh, good.

-For your sick.

-I can be sick in it, yeah.

0:05:380:05:41

-I'll get out of the way!

-Thanks, Naomi.

0:05:410:05:44

Well done, Naomi.

0:05:440:05:45

You managed to recycle the plastic bag.

0:05:450:05:47

And well done, Ed. You managed to recycle your lunch.

0:05:470:05:50

Dude!

0:05:500:05:52

-Dude!

-Dude.

0:05:520:05:54

Check out this gnarly fish I found earlier.

0:05:550:05:58

Look at this big round mouth.

0:05:580:05:59

-What do you think it is?

-It's a plastic bottle.

0:05:590:06:02

Oh, yeah, yeah. I totally knew that.

0:06:020:06:05

All surfers know that.

0:06:050:06:07

-AUSTRALIAN ACCENT:

-What are you doing, mate?

0:06:070:06:09

Plastic's, like, totally killing the ocean.

0:06:090:06:12

If you lined up all the rubbish floating around in the sea at the moment,

0:06:120:06:15

it would reach to the moon and back twice!

0:06:150:06:18

It would look really awful.

0:06:180:06:19

You'd need a big ladder and to pick it up would take ages.

0:06:190:06:22

Anyway, that plastic bottle's going to take more than 400 years to disintegrate.

0:06:220:06:27

Whoa, that's even longer than it takes me to do my hair.

0:06:270:06:30

Oh, it also eats sustainable fish.

0:06:310:06:34

Me too. Trainable fish.

0:06:340:06:36

Trained to get me smoothies and sandwiches and stuff.

0:06:360:06:38

No! Sustainable!

0:06:380:06:39

No, you know, plentiful!

0:06:390:06:41

Not endangered!

0:06:410:06:43

OMG! Totally saw an endangered fish earlier.

0:06:430:06:45

He was trapped in a shell, and its fins were sticking out,

0:06:450:06:48

and its head, and it was like, "Oh! Don't like this!"

0:06:480:06:50

Mate, that was a turtle.

0:06:500:06:51

-Whoa.

-How long have you been a surfer dude?

0:06:520:06:56

Oh, my whole life.

0:06:560:06:58

You know what I've always wanted?

0:06:580:06:59

-What's that?

-To learn how to surf.

0:06:590:07:02

Oh, that would be good.

0:07:020:07:04

Argh! Fish!

0:07:040:07:05

Today, on the Big Thai Painting Challenge,

0:07:230:07:25

our amateur artists attempt to paint the White Temple in Chiang Rai.

0:07:250:07:30

-FRENCH ACCENT:

-And, er, just a little white paint here.

0:07:310:07:35

And here. And that should do it!

0:07:360:07:40

Can you pass the white paint, mi amigo?

0:07:400:07:43

Just need a little bit more.

0:07:430:07:45

I think we've captured it, mon frere.

0:07:460:07:48

I think you are right.

0:07:490:07:50

It's all white, isn't it?

0:07:510:07:53

THEY LAUGH

0:07:530:07:56

-FRENCH:

-All right.

-COCKNEY:

-All right.

-All white!

-All white!

0:07:560:07:59

-You all white?

-It is all white!

0:07:590:08:01

All white! All white! Yes, you are all right, actually.

0:08:020:08:05

You're spot on! This artistic masterpiece is the magnificent White Temple in Chiang Rai.

0:08:050:08:10

It's so bright and white because it was made with white

0:08:100:08:13

plaster, peppered with tiny pieces of glass to sparkle in the sun.

0:08:130:08:18

And it was all built just 20 years ago

0:08:180:08:21

as the crazy creation of one man's marvellous mind.

0:08:210:08:24

BOOMING VOICE: Johnny and Inel!

0:08:240:08:26

You have 45 seconds to find out as much as you

0:08:260:08:29

can about the White Temple!

0:08:290:08:31

Inel, you have the artist himself!

0:08:310:08:34

Mr Chalermchai!

0:08:340:08:36

And Johnny! You have the artist's son! Tan!

0:08:360:08:41

The one who finds out the most facts is the winner!

0:08:410:08:44

Saam, song, neung, pi!

0:08:440:08:47

-Mr Chalermchai!

-What?!

-Why is everything so white?!

0:08:500:08:53

Yes! Because I want to be different!

0:08:530:08:55

Is this more of an art-art installation?

0:08:550:08:59

Or a temple?

0:08:590:09:00

I'd say it's a hybrid, a mixture of two.

0:09:000:09:03

So, when is it all going to be finished?

0:09:030:09:05

Ah!

0:09:050:09:06

This is my whole life.

0:09:060:09:08

When I die, my students will follow my idea!

0:09:080:09:12

Another 60 years!

0:09:120:09:15

And what does the White Temple represent?

0:09:150:09:17

Oh, it actually represents the teaching of Buddhism.

0:09:170:09:20

And heaven, basically. Life after death.

0:09:200:09:23

What is your favourite colour?

0:09:230:09:24

My favourite colour is blue!

0:09:240:09:26

-You see? Like this!

-HE SCREAMS

0:09:260:09:29

-Oh, I would have thought it would be white.

-What?

-Not white?

-Not white.

-All right.

0:09:290:09:32

-That is for my Buddha.

-Oh, right.

0:09:320:09:33

BUZZER

0:09:330:09:35

-Oh! We're out of time!

-Oh, yes!

0:09:350:09:36

BOOMING VOICE: And the one who found out the most facts is...

0:09:360:09:40

-Inel!

-Yes!

0:09:400:09:41

I'm a winner, baby!

0:09:410:09:42

Congratulations!

0:09:420:09:43

You have won a Golden ticket for...

0:09:430:09:46

The Temple toilets.

0:09:460:09:47

This is the lamest gift ever!

0:09:470:09:49

-What do I want with that?

-I'll have it, if you don't want it.

0:09:490:09:52

I've been dying to go for ages!

0:09:520:09:53

All right, well don't forget, we've got an art tour, so hurry back, yeah?

0:09:530:09:58

Oh, I'm going to beat Inel in that drawing competition later.

0:09:580:10:01

If only I could find the Temple toilets.

0:10:010:10:03

Hang on. Am I dreaming?

0:10:030:10:07

It's the most beautiful, breathtaking, public toilet I've ever seen!

0:10:070:10:12

The gold must represent money!

0:10:120:10:14

Material wealth!

0:10:140:10:15

Earthly desires!

0:10:150:10:17

And I desire to use the facilities!

0:10:170:10:20

It's the perfect place...

0:10:200:10:22

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

0:10:230:10:25

This is actually getting a bit weird now, OK?

0:10:250:10:27

I need the loo! You're waiting out here!

0:10:270:10:29

TOILET FLUSHES

0:10:300:10:32

-Oh, there you are!

-Hey!

-What time do you call this?

0:10:330:10:35

Me and Tan have been waiting! Eh?

0:10:350:10:36

All right, it's a perfect opportunity to show everybody our fantastic artistry.

0:10:360:10:40

Tan, what is exactly going on here?

0:10:400:10:43

Oh, you're standing at the entrance of the temple.

0:10:430:10:45

-Oh, I see.

-All these hands, they are to indicate the badness

0:10:460:10:50

before you enter the good side!

0:10:500:10:53

This is going to be a challenge!

0:10:530:10:55

I was always rubbish at drawing hands in school.

0:10:550:10:57

I mean, it's all very handsy, Tan. I mean, what do you reckon to that?

0:10:570:11:00

TAN LAUGHS

0:11:000:11:02

I mean, don't laugh.

0:11:020:11:03

This is no laughing matter!

0:11:030:11:05

The artist, Mr Chalermchai, will be marking your art homework later!

0:11:050:11:09

Good luck!

0:11:090:11:11

We're here at the Gate of Heaven.

0:11:110:11:13

These two guys, they are the guardians of the Gate of Heaven.

0:11:130:11:16

One is called Rahu, and one is called Death.

0:11:160:11:18

-Rahu and Death.

-Yeah, scary, isn't it?

0:11:180:11:21

Yeah, they look pretty scary to me.

0:11:210:11:23

I don't want to offend him with my rubbish drawing.

0:11:230:11:25

What do you think?

0:11:250:11:26

Ah!

0:11:260:11:27

I think Tan's actually impressed!

0:11:270:11:29

But remember, you must charm Mr Chalermchai!

0:11:290:11:33

We are inside the Temple.

0:11:330:11:34

Wow! And it's not even white in here!

0:11:340:11:37

Did Mr Chalermchai run out of white paint?

0:11:370:11:39

No! We want to make contrast between the inside and the outside.

0:11:400:11:43

It's to represent the human greed, and the evilness of the people.

0:11:430:11:47

-You know?

-It's making me not want to be greedy any more.

0:11:470:11:50

I think I'm going to stop having two scoops of ice cream.

0:11:500:11:53

We shall see about that, Johnny Two Scoops.

0:11:530:11:55

Don't call me that any more.

0:11:550:11:57

It's now Johnny One and a Half Scoops.

0:11:570:12:00

Inel and Johnny One and a Half Scoops

0:12:000:12:03

now have to put the finishing touches to their masterpieces.

0:12:030:12:08

Mr Chalermchai!

0:12:080:12:09

-What is that?

-We need you to judge our final drawings!

0:12:090:12:11

-Wow!

-First up's mine, Mr Chalermchai!

0:12:110:12:14

Kung Fu Panda! Oh, I love this one, also.

0:12:140:12:17

Strong drawing! Powerful drawing!

0:12:170:12:18

And... Ah!

0:12:180:12:20

HE MAKES EXPLOSIVE NOISE

0:12:200:12:22

Mr Chalermchai, what about mine?

0:12:220:12:23

Wow! Composition!

0:12:230:12:25

It's feeling good to me!

0:12:250:12:27

-Yeah! You see that! I had that hand there, I put it there, and you see that too.

-Very good, yeah!

0:12:270:12:31

And draw!

0:12:310:12:33

You know what, I'm feeling a lot more arty farty now!

0:12:330:12:36

Speaking of which, where's that toilet you were talking about?

0:12:360:12:39

Oh, don't worry about that, mate, yeah.

0:12:390:12:40

We'll just find you a toilet on the way home.

0:12:400:12:43

-Yeah?

-A bit more suitable to you.

0:12:430:12:44

Maybe side of the motorway or something.

0:12:440:12:46

-Oh, that's nice of you. Cheers, man. Thanks a lot. Golden!

-Yeah, yeah.

0:12:460:12:50

See you later, guys.

0:12:500:12:52

MUSIC: Eye Of The Tiger

0:13:060:13:07

So. Do you know...

0:13:100:13:12

No, let's start!

0:13:150:13:16

Tae means kick with feet.

0:13:180:13:21

And Kwon means fist.

0:13:210:13:24

And Do means art.

0:13:240:13:25

# Here we are, in Taekwondowan

0:13:280:13:32

# A town devoted to Taekwondo

0:13:320:13:35

# This martial art, Korean sport number one

0:13:360:13:40

# And also popular globally

0:13:400:13:44

# Championship events are put on

0:13:460:13:49

# In this enormous arena

0:13:500:13:52

# Or you can try your skills practise one-on-one

0:13:540:13:58

# Sparring in virtual reality

0:13:580:14:02

# Known as Taekwondo town it's spread over nine valleys

0:14:020:14:07

# With a museum and sculptured gardens

0:14:070:14:10

# There's even a monorail to an observatory

0:14:100:14:15

# This place celebrates the martial art...

0:14:150:14:20

# ..of Taekwondo

0:14:200:14:21

# To learn about this popular sport many South Koreans choose

0:14:250:14:31

# To come to Taekwondowon where they are taught

0:14:340:14:37

# The five core Taekwondo values

0:14:370:14:41

# Courtesy is first on the list

0:14:430:14:44

# Integrity, stand up for what's true

0:14:460:14:49

# Self-control and the will to persist

0:14:510:14:55

# And indomitable spirit, too

0:14:550:14:58

# Because a taekwondo fighter has to carefully train

0:15:000:15:04

# To improve physical and mental strength

0:15:040:15:08

# And there's six different coloured belts that you can gain

0:15:080:15:12

# As you journey through the martial art...

0:15:120:15:17

# ..of Taekwondo! #

0:15:170:15:19

So, now you know...

0:15:220:15:25

..Taekwondo...

0:15:250:15:27

..have a go!

0:15:270:15:29

See, if you're good,

0:15:310:15:33

break this wood.

0:15:330:15:35

Here I go!

0:15:360:15:39

Aargh!

0:15:390:15:40

The art of Taekwondo!

0:15:400:15:43

-That looked like it hurt!

-No!

0:15:440:15:46

Maybe a bit.

0:15:500:15:51

Warning Taekwondon't try this at home.

0:15:510:15:53

You might just hurt yourself.

0:15:530:15:54

So, are you sure this is possible, Professor Ed?

0:16:080:16:12

Combining human and dinosaur DNA to create a super hybrid?

0:16:120:16:16

Of course it is, I saw it in a film.

0:16:160:16:18

It will change the world. The strength of the dinosaur,

0:16:180:16:21

combined with the brains of Ed Petrie?

0:16:210:16:23

Well, that's exactly what I'm worried about.

0:16:230:16:25

What if this creature has the brains of the dinosaur

0:16:250:16:27

and the body of Ed Petrie?

0:16:270:16:28

Oh! Oh, no-one wants that, do they?

0:16:280:16:31

This is the Zigong dinosaur museum.

0:16:450:16:48

Built on the biggest single site of dinosaur remains in the world!

0:16:480:16:53

The building sits on top of an ancient riverbed,

0:16:530:16:56

where loads of dinosaurs died 160 million years ago.

0:16:560:17:00

And those fossilized dinosaurs have been left for us to see,

0:17:000:17:04

half dug out, Just as they were discovered!

0:17:040:17:08

I'm trying to cross my DNA with a dinosaur's,

0:17:080:17:10

so I'm just wondering which was the strongest, brainiest,

0:17:100:17:13

and most handsome?

0:17:130:17:15

I think brainiest and the strongest, tyrannosaur.

0:17:150:17:19

Oh, really? Tyrannosaurus Rex?

0:17:190:17:21

Yeah, carnivore.

0:17:210:17:22

But, we didn't find any of them in Zigong, we found another

0:17:220:17:27

very, very brainiest guy.

0:17:270:17:29

That's the Yangchuanosaurus Hepingensis.

0:17:290:17:32

-That's the one you have here?

-We have.

0:17:320:17:34

Ah! Let's check out that bad boy!

0:17:340:17:36

-OK.

-Do you have a favourite dinosaur?

0:17:360:17:38

Huayangosurus Taibaii.

0:17:380:17:40

There's two reasons.

0:17:400:17:42

First one, I think it's the most primitive stegosaurus in the world.

0:17:420:17:46

160 million years old. So old!

0:17:460:17:50

Hello and welcome to Come DNA With Me!

0:17:500:17:53

The game show where we fictionally match

0:17:530:17:56

the dinosaurs to their genetic traits.

0:17:560:17:59

Actual DNA has not been used and some dinosaur data may have been dramatized for purposes of filming.

0:17:590:18:04

But everything else is factually correct at time of printing!

0:18:040:18:07

Hello.

0:18:070:18:09

Nice waistcoat.

0:18:090:18:10

I have here three dinosaur traits.

0:18:120:18:15

You have to match them to this little fellow.

0:18:150:18:17

Does this dinosaur display one, agility?

0:18:190:18:23

Two, superior hearing?

0:18:230:18:25

Or three, flying ability?

0:18:250:18:28

Agilisaurus I think, maybe, the clue is in the name.

0:18:280:18:31

So let's go with agility.

0:18:310:18:33

I didn't think of that. Yes, correct.

0:18:330:18:35

Scientists can also tell from its leg bone proportions

0:18:350:18:39

that it was a very fast runner.

0:18:390:18:41

I do think I actually know this one.

0:18:430:18:45

The stegosaurus, isn't it?

0:18:450:18:46

It's not just a stegosaurus,

0:18:460:18:47

it's a Gigantspinosaurus Sichuanensis.

0:18:470:18:50

What was the point of that spiny thing?

0:18:500:18:52

Is it one, for improved steering?

0:18:520:18:54

Two, defensive protection?

0:18:540:18:57

Or three, increased style?

0:18:570:18:59

I guess I'll go with the defensive.

0:18:590:19:01

In all honesty, nobody knows!

0:19:010:19:03

But it wasn't for steering or style.

0:19:030:19:05

So you win a point.

0:19:050:19:07

Hey!

0:19:070:19:08

Look at this chap! Yangchuanosaurus Hepingensis.

0:19:100:19:14

What do you see?

0:19:140:19:15

Obviously, there's a dinosaur in its mouth.

0:19:150:19:17

So, did this dinosaur one, have exceptional child rearing skills?

0:19:170:19:23

Two, predator skills?

0:19:230:19:25

Or three, first aid expertise?

0:19:250:19:27

Are you suggesting that he's giving the little dinosaur mouth-to-mouth?

0:19:270:19:32

So you're going with trait three?

0:19:320:19:34

-No, go with the predator.

-Oh, that's correct!

0:19:340:19:36

-You've won!

-Hey!

0:19:360:19:38

What have I won?

0:19:380:19:39

Well, we've combined these traits to create this...

0:19:390:19:43

It has the brain of a dinosaur and the body of Ed Petrie.

0:19:460:19:50

Go and play with him.

0:19:500:19:51

Don't worry, we haven't really created a dinosaur-human hybrid.

0:19:530:19:57

Join us next week, when we'll be establishing a colony on Jupiter.

0:19:570:20:01

Goodbye. Put him down!

0:20:010:20:04

Put him down!

0:20:040:20:05

Wow!

0:20:230:20:25

I mean, that was...

0:20:250:20:27

Epic. It was... It was...

0:20:270:20:29

-It was epic.

-I mean, I don't quite know how to explain this.

0:20:290:20:34

I mean, they're going to want to know how we got to this stage.

0:20:340:20:38

I know. But, I mean, how can we find the words?

0:20:380:20:41

I don't think we can, tiny, sweet Lauren.

0:20:420:20:45

I don't think we can.

0:20:450:20:47

Happy Holi! Happy Holi!

0:20:470:20:49

Let's see if I can help.

0:20:520:20:53

This is the Holi festival,

0:20:530:20:55

otherwise very appropriately known as the Festival of Colours.

0:20:550:21:00

One day every year in late February or March,

0:21:000:21:03

people in many parts of India

0:21:030:21:05

cover each other with coloured powder or water.

0:21:050:21:09

It's all done in very good humour.

0:21:100:21:13

But - be aware - anyone and everyone from any part of Indian society,

0:21:130:21:18

or visitors, can get splattered.

0:21:180:21:21

Happy Holi! Happy Holi!

0:21:210:21:24

Why? Well, watch this AOTP interpretive dance guide to Holi

0:21:240:21:28

to find out.

0:21:280:21:30

Begin dancing.

0:21:310:21:33

Holi is a festival that celebrates the end of winter

0:21:330:21:36

and the new life and energy of spring.

0:21:360:21:39

The celebrations start the night before with Holika bonfires,

0:21:390:21:42

and this honours the Hindu legend of good triumphing over evil.

0:21:420:21:46

The next day, people cover each other with coloured water and powder.

0:21:470:21:52

And you must remember it's all about the fun.

0:21:520:21:54

We have ended.

0:21:560:21:57

Stop dancing.

0:21:570:21:59

No, seriously, stop dancing.

0:21:590:22:01

So, just to clarify, we've been here two minutes.

0:22:010:22:04

Look at the state of us!

0:22:040:22:06

Look at that! I think we need to get involved.

0:22:060:22:08

Let's buy some of this coloured powder, shall we?

0:22:080:22:10

Well, why not start here-ish?

0:22:100:22:12

-There we go.

-Let's have a look at that. We got some red, some green.

-The pink is nice, isn't it?

0:22:120:22:15

-Vibrant. I like it.

-Vibrant pink.

0:22:150:22:18

Can I have some yellow? Oh, beautiful.

0:22:180:22:20

-What colour shall I go for, Chris? Pick one for me.

-Well, you've got blue on.

0:22:200:22:23

-Yeah.

-Let's go for the pink.

0:22:230:22:25

-OK, vibrant pink.

-What did you do today?

0:22:250:22:27

Thank you. Thank you.

0:22:270:22:29

-Thank you. Yes!

-Cheers!

0:22:290:22:31

-Just go and throw this in someone's face?

-Yeah!

0:22:310:22:34

First up, a local shopping area.

0:22:370:22:39

But it's all shut.

0:22:390:22:40

That's because everyone is out getting messy.

0:22:400:22:43

Oh! That was loads!

0:22:450:22:46

-Just got a water pistol to the legs!

-The water is out!

0:22:550:22:58

Just got water pistoled! Oh, that's cold!

0:22:580:23:00

Ah! Oh, thank you!

0:23:000:23:03

Wow, that was right in the face, that was.

0:23:030:23:06

Local Holi celebrations tend to happen in the morning.

0:23:070:23:11

Happy Holi!

0:23:110:23:14

And you'll find communities of families,

0:23:140:23:16

friends, and neighbours, covering each other with colour,

0:23:160:23:20

just like right here in this courtyard.

0:23:200:23:23

More, Chris! More!

0:23:250:23:26

Happy Holi, guys.

0:23:270:23:29

-Happy Holi!

-Happy Holi, man.

-Happy Holi. Happy Holi.

0:23:290:23:31

Thank you very much.

0:23:310:23:33

I'm covered. I am covered.

0:23:330:23:35

Happy Holi!

0:23:350:23:36

Let's go. Right, we need a water pistol here.

0:23:390:23:43

Why are you hiding behind me?!

0:23:430:23:45

I'm not, I'm just protecting your back.

0:23:450:23:47

-What is this?!

-It's so positive.

0:23:470:23:49

-It's so positive.

-It's just this wave of happiness.

0:23:490:23:51

You just feel, like, utterly joyful when you're just doing this.

0:23:510:23:55

I could do this all day long, I genuinely could.

0:23:550:23:58

Happy Holi, happy Holi, happy Holi!

0:23:580:24:00

Happy Holi!

0:24:000:24:01

Main event done before lunchtime.

0:24:010:24:03

Just chill out for the rest of the day now.

0:24:030:24:05

Hang on, though, we don't actually know who's won.

0:24:050:24:08

Oh, yeah. Or, for that matter, what the competition actually was.

0:24:080:24:13

Voiceover man?

0:24:140:24:16

Yeah, there's a reason for that, guys, you're not done yet.

0:24:160:24:19

You're going to spend the afternoon at one of Delhi's biggest Holi

0:24:190:24:23

parties, and I've even got you some lovely, fresh, clean party clothes.

0:24:230:24:28

Your challenge is to keep them as white as possible,

0:24:280:24:32

and to make that as tough as possible,

0:24:320:24:35

I want you to carry out three tasks at this very messy festival.

0:24:350:24:40

The trophy goes to the one who has the whitest clothes afterwards,

0:24:400:24:44

as judged by Holi party expert Ruhi.

0:24:440:24:47

OK, task one.

0:24:490:24:51

Take a blank canvas and get it covered with a Holi painting.

0:24:510:24:55

But try to stop the colour getting on your clothes.

0:24:550:24:58

Keep them as white as you can.

0:24:580:25:00

Guys! Paint my picture.

0:25:020:25:03

Make a little drawing or something.

0:25:030:25:06

-Oh!

-Happy Holi, my friend. Happy Holi!

0:25:060:25:09

Was that it? That was it? Was that it? Is that my painting?

0:25:110:25:15

Anyone want to paint? Anyone want to paint?

0:25:150:25:18

Maybe draw a dog, yes?

0:25:180:25:20

Something that says Holi.

0:25:200:25:22

Something nice. You know, something like...

0:25:220:25:24

Oh, beautiful. Feeling the love.

0:25:240:25:27

I mean, is not the best artwork, is it?

0:25:270:25:30

Yeah! Nice!

0:25:310:25:34

Is this cheating?

0:25:360:25:38

Let's just say I think one of you

0:25:390:25:41

definitely pulled off that task better than the other!

0:25:410:25:44

Task two. Spread some Holi joy by covering people with colour,

0:25:460:25:51

and keep it off your clothes.

0:25:510:25:53

Whitest T-shirts wins the trophy.

0:25:530:25:55

-Happy Holi, happy Holi.

-Happy Holi!

0:25:550:25:58

-No-one's getting me back. This is great.

-Oh, beautiful.

0:25:580:26:01

-Thank you very much. Just not on the T-shirt.

-Happy Holi!

0:26:010:26:03

-Happy Holi!

-Oh, have a good one.

0:26:030:26:06

Cheers, my man.

0:26:060:26:08

-Happy Holi.

-Happy Holi. Thank you.

0:26:080:26:11

-Happy Holi.

-Nobody's getting me back.

-Happy Holi!

-So close!

-Happy Holi.

0:26:110:26:15

-That's Ewan, he's the director. Now he's caked in it!

-It's gone.

0:26:150:26:19

It's all gone.

0:26:190:26:21

Empty bag.

0:26:210:26:23

That's how you do it.

0:26:230:26:25

After two tasks, you're both looking pretty messy.

0:26:250:26:28

So it's all down to the final one.

0:26:280:26:31

Giving my two favourite cuddly toys a Holi makeover.

0:26:310:26:35

Get them covered in colour but don't get it on your clothes.

0:26:350:26:39

Remember, the whitest T-shirt will be the winner.

0:26:390:26:42

Rub on him. Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

0:26:420:26:45

Give him a happy Holi.

0:26:450:26:47

Happy Holi! Yeah! Yes!

0:26:470:26:50

Yes! Make it horrible!

0:26:500:26:52

There we go. Oh, there it is.

0:26:520:26:55

Yes, my friends. Thank you, thank you. Happy Holi!

0:26:550:26:58

Go on. Yay! Yay!

0:26:580:27:02

Yay!

0:27:020:27:04

Happy holi!

0:27:040:27:06

Oh, thank you.

0:27:060:27:09

So, after my three messy tasks,

0:27:090:27:12

who has kept their white outfits the cleanest to win the trophy?

0:27:120:27:16

And the winner of the All Over The Place Holi trophy is...

0:27:170:27:21

Lauren!

0:27:240:27:25

Yeah! Yes!

0:27:250:27:28

Mwah!

0:27:280:27:30

You've been watching All Over The Place: Asia.

0:27:310:27:34

Ed Petrie and his mates swim with manta rays in Indonesia, find a golden toilet block attached to a contemporary art exhibit called The White Temple in Thailand, visit a town totally devoted to Taekwondo in South Korea, discover the world's biggest single site of dinosaur remains in China and get ridiculously messy at Holi, the Festival of Colours in India. Ed is joined on this bonkers road trip by Johnny Cochrane, Chris Johnson, Talisha 'Tee Cee' Johnson, Lauren Layfield, Bobby Lockwood, Inel Tomlinson and Naomi Wilkinson.
