0:00:100:00:13

Asia! Asia! Asia!

0:00:130:00:16

It's going to be a epic!

0:00:160:00:17

-Oh!

-PARTY HORN BLARES

0:00:170:00:20

So there!

0:00:200:00:21

Let's do this.

0:00:210:00:22

We've got loads of brain-boggling facts to tell you about.

0:00:220:00:25

Welcome to All Over The Place!

0:00:250:00:27

-Can I watch it?

-You're in it.

0:00:270:00:29

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

0:00:290:00:35

-How far is the sea?

-I'm coming to get you!

0:00:350:00:38

So, are you ready to go?!

0:00:380:00:40

# All over the place

0:00:400:00:42

# All over the place

0:00:430:00:44

# North, south, east, west On a bizarre quest

0:00:460:00:48

# Me and my mates, all over the place!

0:00:480:00:51

# It's true what you've heard, everything is absurd

0:00:510:00:53

# Whatever we do is strange but true!

0:00:530:00:56

# All over the place

0:00:560:00:57

# All over the place

0:00:580:01:00

# There's stuff to do in Asia that is totally ace

0:01:010:01:04

-# And it turns up...

-# ..all over the place! #

0:01:040:01:07

-How are you feeling?

-Tired. I've got a bit of a headache.

0:01:170:01:20

-Well, it is 5:30am.

-I know. Oh, I feel a bit sick.

0:01:200:01:24

I think I might have a bit of indigestion.

0:01:240:01:26

Well, we have crossed seven time zones.

0:01:260:01:28

I hate it when my body clock is all out of sync!

0:01:280:01:30

Why did you make me get up so early?

0:01:300:01:32

Look, when you are trying to get over jet lag,

0:01:320:01:34

the best thing to do is get out in the natural light and keep active.

0:01:340:01:38

-Whoa...these guys haven't got jet lag.

-Whoa.

0:01:380:01:41

What is going on with them, voice-over man?

0:01:410:01:43

HE SNORES

0:01:430:01:46

Oi, voice-over man, wake up!

0:01:460:01:48

You need to tell us what is going on.

0:01:480:01:50

Wha...? Um...yes! I'm wide awake now!

0:01:500:01:52

And, by the looks of things, so are this lot!

0:01:520:01:55

Older people all over China come to parks and squares like this one

0:01:550:01:59

really early to shake the cobwebs away,

0:01:590:02:02

meet up with their pals and take part in a lot of fun activities.

0:02:020:02:07

Can you imagine your grandad painting calligraphy on the ground,

0:02:070:02:10

or Granny exercising with a sword at 5:30 in the morning?

0:02:100:02:15

This is a martial art called t'ai chi,

0:02:150:02:18

and many people believe that it keeps you healthy

0:02:180:02:21

by unblocking stuff in your body that might be making you ill,

0:02:210:02:24

and maybe it can help cure your jet lag.

0:02:240:02:28

Chi for two?

0:02:280:02:29

Oh, good, I've been looking for my inner chi.

0:02:290:02:32

Let's go and have a go.

0:02:320:02:33

Oh, straight into a really serious bend.

0:02:330:02:36

TRANQUIL MUSIC PLAYS

0:02:390:02:42

What an amazing start to your day.

0:02:440:02:45

I feel better already.

0:02:500:02:52

-I don't really know what to do.

-Everything has stopped.

0:02:530:02:55

Yeah, we have been stood like this for a while.

0:02:550:02:57

-Shall we shuffle off?

-Yeah.

0:02:570:02:59

Oi! Where are you going?

0:03:010:03:03

Plenty of early-morning activities to do yet.

0:03:030:03:06

A bit of traditional Chinese waist drum dancing is in order.

0:03:060:03:09

CHIMES RING

0:03:090:03:11

Waist drums were originally used by soldiers

0:03:160:03:18

to warn of attacks by angry enemies, and are now used in festivities,

0:03:180:03:22

but can also be irritating alarm clocks!

0:03:220:03:25

This would wake you up before going to work every morning, wouldn't it?

0:03:250:03:28

You know I said I've got a headache...?

0:03:280:03:30

-CHEERING

-Well done, ladies.

0:03:320:03:34

SHE SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE

0:03:340:03:36

THEY CHEER

0:03:360:03:38

Hello!

0:03:380:03:40

Your turn.

0:03:400:03:42

Uh... Oh, look over there!

0:03:420:03:43

Third and final wake-up call.

0:03:450:03:47

Chinese fans are viewed as good luck charms

0:03:470:03:50

and expressions of generosity.

0:03:500:03:52

Let's hope the judges are generous with their scores in...

0:03:520:03:55

..with Ed and Naomi.

0:03:570:03:59

NAOMI GIGGLES

0:04:010:04:02

She is laughing at us - is that a good thing?

0:04:020:04:04

Someone has just done some early-morning shopping behind us.

0:04:070:04:09

NAOMI LAUGHS

0:04:090:04:11

I bet you are annoyingly good at this.

0:04:130:04:15

I am enjoying myself, I must admit.

0:04:150:04:17

This is a lot more complicated than it looks.

0:04:170:04:19

Oh.

0:04:190:04:20

THEY CHEER

0:04:200:04:23

Oh, xiexie.

0:04:230:04:25

Let's find out who the judge is the biggest FAN of.

0:04:250:04:29

For Naomi, it is...

0:04:290:04:31

And for Ed, it's...

0:04:330:04:35

Two?! I got up at 4:30 in the morning for this!

0:04:360:04:39

That is worth three points alone.

0:04:390:04:41

It's quite generous, really.

0:04:410:04:42

You just have to keep coming here at 5:30 every morning.

0:04:420:04:45

Keep practising!

0:04:450:04:47

It's going to cost me a lot in airfares.

0:04:470:04:50

-Hello!

-Hello, everybody.

0:04:510:04:53

Welcome to...

0:04:530:04:54

Today, we are going to be making something that is so easy.

0:04:560:05:00

Chinese...

0:05:000:05:01

That's right, Chinese calligraphy.

0:05:010:05:04

Calligraphy.

0:05:060:05:08

It's a mixture of painting

0:05:080:05:09

and writing at the same time.

0:05:090:05:12

Which, as we all know, will be so easy.

0:05:120:05:15

It is so easy, to write and understand.

0:05:150:05:19

For instance, this says, "Dog tractor shoes."

0:05:190:05:23

Or another way of translating it might be,

0:05:260:05:29

"It doesn't matter how deep the water is

0:05:290:05:31

"as long as there is a dragon in it."

0:05:310:05:34

Translation is so easy.

0:05:340:05:37

So let's make our own cally graffy!

0:05:370:05:40

Yes, let's make our own CALLIGRAPHY.

0:05:400:05:43

I am going to write "flower".

0:05:430:05:46

And I am going to write "sun".

0:05:460:05:47

With this.

0:05:470:05:49

It is a calligraphy mop brush...thing

0:05:490:05:51

that we all have at home.

0:05:510:05:53

-Is... Is that really Chinese calligraphy?

-Yes.

0:05:550:05:59

I like thin lines best. Watch.

0:05:590:06:02

My favourites are the thick lines.

0:06:030:06:05

Did you know there is over 50,000 characters in cally graffy?

0:06:050:06:09

-I mean, calligraphy.

-I did know that, Ed.

0:06:090:06:11

Name them, then.

0:06:110:06:13

As you can see, with this gentleman here in the park,

0:06:130:06:16

it is so easy.

0:06:160:06:18

It is so easy when you get someone to do it for you.

0:06:180:06:20

Just... Just...

0:06:240:06:25

-This...is easy!

-So easy.

0:06:250:06:28

Yes, this says "forest".

0:06:280:06:29

Says "forest",

0:06:290:06:30

in Chinese cally graffy!

0:06:300:06:32

This may look like your average ancient castle,

0:06:500:06:53

built by a Japanese ruler called...

0:06:530:06:56

..in 1583,

0:06:560:06:57

but all is not as it seems.

0:06:570:07:00

Osaka Castle has been destroyed and rebuilt

0:07:000:07:03

not once, not twice,

0:07:030:07:06

but three times!

0:07:060:07:08

This modern 1931 version even contains a lift,

0:07:080:07:12

three underground floors, a gold tearoom, a museum...

0:07:120:07:15

Oh, hang on a minute, a gold tearoom?!

0:07:150:07:19

You two better find out more.

0:07:190:07:21

DRAMATIC VOICE: Ed and Cel, you have 36 seconds

0:07:210:07:24

to find out as much as you can about Osaka Castle!

0:07:240:07:27

Ed, you have Atobe.

0:07:270:07:29

Cel, you have Aoki.

0:07:300:07:32

Whoever finds out that most facts is the winner.

0:07:340:07:37

San, ni, ichi, ikimasu!

0:07:370:07:41

-Oh...

-So, if this castle...

0:07:430:07:45

Sorry, I think I startled you there.

0:07:450:07:47

If this castle was built in 1931, when was the original castle built?

0:07:470:07:51

TRANSLATION: 1593.

0:07:510:07:53

How many visitors does the castle get each year?

0:07:530:07:56

TRANSLATION: Well, last year, we got 2.3 million visitors,

0:07:560:07:58

which is quite a lot, isn't it?

0:07:580:08:00

So, when was the first castle destroyed?

0:08:000:08:03

TRANSLATION: 1615.

0:08:030:08:05

How tall is the castle?

0:08:050:08:07

TRANSLATION: Well, it's 54.8 metres high, which is very high, so it is.

0:08:070:08:11

And what happened to the second castle?

0:08:110:08:13

TRANSLATION: Scary weather! Boom! Lightning.

0:08:130:08:15

-Really?

-Yes.

0:08:150:08:17

ALARM SOUNDS

0:08:170:08:19

-Nice. Arigato!

-Aye, nae bother!

0:08:190:08:21

There is not going to be any lightning today, is there?

0:08:210:08:24

TRANSLATION: Um, maybe...

0:08:240:08:25

Boom! Lightning!

0:08:250:08:27

The person who found out the most facts is...

0:08:270:08:29

-Ed!

-Yes!

0:08:290:08:32

And you get to take the lift to the top of the castle.

0:08:320:08:35

Cel, you are taking the stairs.

0:08:350:08:38

Oh...

0:08:380:08:39

You'd better tie your laces, Cel,

0:08:390:08:41

this castle has got eight floors of stairs to climb.

0:08:410:08:44

Ed knows where they are.

0:08:440:08:46

Stairs are that way, Cel. Don't take too long.

0:08:460:08:48

Is this an uplifting job, or does it have its ups and downs?

0:08:480:08:53

These helmets are awesome.

0:08:530:08:54

Now, I wonder if they will let me try them on.

0:08:540:08:56

I love a lift, me.

0:08:560:08:58

-Wow, heavy.

-Heavy.

-Yeah.

0:08:580:09:00

Ooh! Hello.

0:09:000:09:02

Ah, look at that.

0:09:030:09:04

And I'm not even out of breath. Unlike Cel!

0:09:040:09:07

So, behind me is the infamous golden tearoom.

0:09:070:09:10

Now, it is not actually real gold, and that is a reconstruction

0:09:100:09:12

of what the original tearoom would have looked like.

0:09:120:09:14

If you ask me, though, great place to have a cup of tea.

0:09:140:09:17

Just the one sugar, please.

0:09:170:09:18

Imagine being on some stairs now.

0:09:180:09:20

Ooh.

0:09:200:09:21

How cool is this? Miniature battle scene. Super cool!

0:09:210:09:24

Should probably go and find Ed. He is missing out.

0:09:240:09:27

-Ah! All right, Ed?

-Oh, there you are.

0:09:280:09:31

I was wondering where you got to. How was the stairs?

0:09:310:09:33

They were really good, actually!

0:09:330:09:34

Got to see the whole of Osaka Castle,

0:09:340:09:36

but this view, by the way, beautiful.

0:09:360:09:38

Amazing, isn't it? I've been soaking it up.

0:09:380:09:40

Can't seem to find this golden tearoom, though.

0:09:400:09:43

The golden tearoom? That was floor...three!

0:09:430:09:45

A bit of the way down. Fantastic stuff, mate.

0:09:450:09:48

-You want to see it, did you say?

-Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:09:480:09:50

-It's closing soon, pal, you want to get your skates on.

-What?!

0:09:500:09:52

No, no, I've got to see the golden tearoom!

0:09:520:09:54

-I mean, it is a golden tearoom!

-I know.

0:09:540:09:57

-Made of gold!

-Floor three! That way!

0:09:570:09:59

I'll see you at the bottom of the stairs!

0:09:590:10:01

But it wasn't real gold, Ed! It's not real gold, it's...!

0:10:010:10:03

Gold - what it does to some people, hey?

0:10:050:10:07

HE TUTS

0:10:070:10:08

I don't get it. You are Isaac Newton. Isaac Newton!

0:10:100:10:14

You are supposed to be finding out about gravity.

0:10:140:10:17

You know, ever since that apple landed on your head.

0:10:170:10:21

It didn't land on my head.

0:10:210:10:23

I simply saw it fall from a tree.

0:10:230:10:26

Anyway, gravity is boring.

0:10:260:10:28

Today, I am all about alchemy.

0:10:280:10:31

How to turn base metals like brass and bronze

0:10:310:10:34

into pure gold.

0:10:340:10:36

If I can just find the philosopher's stone.

0:10:360:10:39

Oh, that's all right, I've got that on DVD.

0:10:390:10:42

No, not Harry Potter.

0:10:420:10:44

The philosopher's stone is a mystery compound

0:10:440:10:47

that could turn this lead paperweight

0:10:470:10:50

into pure gold.

0:10:500:10:51

I would have thought that Granny Smith landing on your head

0:10:510:10:54

would have put you off apples.

0:10:540:10:55

Will you stop saying that?!

0:10:550:10:56

If you keep saying it,

0:10:560:10:58

people are going to believe it in hundreds of years' time!

0:10:580:11:00

Hardly!

0:11:000:11:01

Besides, gold is useless.

0:11:010:11:03

Why don't you turn it into something better?

0:11:030:11:06

-WHISPERS:

-Like cake.

0:11:060:11:08

Well, I suppose I could give it a try.

0:11:080:11:10

No, the point is gold is rare.

0:11:100:11:13

Doesn't exactly grow on trees.

0:11:130:11:15

Well, it kind of does. On the eucalyptus tree.

0:11:150:11:18

Well, in it, actually.

0:11:180:11:21

A tiny bit of gold can be found in its leaves, so there.

0:11:210:11:24

All right, gold doesn't exactly grow in the...sea.

0:11:240:11:29

Well, the world's oceans do contain about 20 million tonnes of gold,

0:11:290:11:32

and there is gold in human blood.

0:11:320:11:36

About 0.2 milligrams.

0:11:360:11:38

So you would need 5,000 people to make one gram of gold.

0:11:380:11:42

Which is fine...

0:11:420:11:44

but I've only got three friends.

0:11:440:11:46

And two of them are mice.

0:11:460:11:47

MOUSE SQUEAKS

0:11:470:11:49

What?

0:11:490:11:50

You consider yourself more of an acquaintance?

0:11:500:11:52

Oh.

0:11:520:11:54

Anyway, I am trying to work.

0:11:540:11:57

Ugh, why doesn't this work?!

0:11:570:11:59

Should have read Harry Potter.

0:11:590:12:00

Gold!

0:12:040:12:05

An apple made of pure gold!

0:12:050:12:08

Woohoo!

0:12:080:12:10

See, now you are the man who had an apple land on his head!

0:12:150:12:18

Ooh!

0:12:180:12:20

I'm off to see if I can change this for a sandwich.

0:12:200:12:23

"It's New Year's Eve in Oga,

0:12:350:12:37

"and we're about to witness a very particular custom.

0:12:370:12:41

Why are we doing this bit, and not actual children?

0:12:410:12:43

< They were all too scared.

0:12:430:12:45

Oh, right.

0:12:450:12:47

What?

0:12:470:12:48

Did he say they were all too scared?

0:12:480:12:50

Well, what I've heard is there is this tradition, right, in Oga,

0:12:500:12:53

where, on New Year's Eve, locals get dressed up

0:12:530:12:56

as these legendary monsters called Namahage

0:12:560:12:58

and burst into people's homes, searching for misbehaving children.

0:12:580:13:02

But...scary in a good way? Yeah?

0:13:020:13:05

I think we're about to find out.

0:13:050:13:08

# One way or another

0:13:080:13:10

# We're gonna find out

0:15:280:15:30

Oh, ha-ha, yes!

0:15:450:15:47

What are you looking at?

0:15:470:15:48

Oh, it is just pictures of things with faces in them.

0:15:480:15:51

Here, have a look at that.

0:15:510:15:53

That is a thing that looks like a face!

0:15:530:15:55

It's good, isn't it?

0:15:550:15:56

You know, I once saw a piece of bacon that looked like Beyonce.

0:15:560:15:58

-Earlier, I saw a piece of melon with my face in it.

-No!

-Yeah!

0:15:580:16:03

-Have a look at this!

-That looks so much like you.

-And that's not all.

0:16:030:16:07

-Over there, there's some fruit and veg with your face in it.

-Really?

0:16:070:16:10

Yeah.

0:16:100:16:12

Oh.

0:16:120:16:13

You've never looked better, Ed.

0:16:140:16:17

But if you did want to see some professional food carving,

0:16:170:16:19

then you're in the right place.

0:16:190:16:21

Wan Hertz has been making beautiful food out for over 30 years

0:16:210:16:25

and teaches this royal tradition, which started over 700 years ago.

0:16:250:16:29

Even those flowers are made from veg.

0:16:290:16:33

This table decoration is known in Thailand as Kae-Sa-Luk.

0:16:330:16:37

I think you guys might need some luck

0:16:370:16:39

if you want to master this tradition.

0:16:390:16:41

How long would it take you to carve something like this beautiful

0:16:410:16:44

All Over The Place Asia watermelon?

0:16:440:16:46

-It's one hour.

-An hour?

-Wow!

-Could you teach us how to do this?

0:16:460:16:51

-Yes. And we have one space to teach one person.

-One space.

0:16:510:16:54

-Oh.

-Only one of us can do it.

-Well, it should be me, then.

0:16:540:16:57

-No. I think it should be me.

-OK. You choose this one. It's a carrot.

0:16:570:16:59

-OK. Short straws. Or short carrots.

-Bring it on.

0:16:590:17:03

-Yes!

-Oh, what?!

0:17:060:17:07

Asia's most intricate food.

0:17:070:17:10

France's toughest critic. He is better than you.

0:17:100:17:14

It's Rene Mangetout.

0:17:140:17:16

Pomme de terre.

0:17:160:17:18

I, Rene Mangetout,

0:17:180:17:20

am about to set you the biggest challenge of your lives.

0:17:200:17:23

You must make a beautiful, intricate piece of carved veg.

0:17:230:17:28

-Do you know your melon from your mangetout? Melon?

-No.

0:17:280:17:33

Mate. This is a melon, isn't it? This.

0:17:340:17:37

Oh. Who are they?

0:17:370:17:39

-Students.

-Oh.

0:17:410:17:43

Ze carving will begin. In, un, deux, neuf, cinq!

0:17:440:17:50

Lauren creates an outline of her design

0:17:510:17:54

before she starts to cut around it.

0:17:540:17:56

What I have to do is get the knife underneath.

0:17:560:18:00

Remember, children.

0:18:000:18:02

If you want to try this at home you must get your sharpest knife...

0:18:020:18:05

No, no! Can I just say, don't touch sharp knives.

0:18:050:18:09

Only do anything like this if you've got a proper professional around.

0:18:090:18:12

Or zat! Did you know that the tomato is a fruit?

0:18:120:18:17

-I don't think that was the way to do it.

-Pomme de terre.

0:18:190:18:23

-How do I do this?

-The half circle? Slowly. Just leave it.

0:18:240:18:29

Holding the knife like a pen,

0:18:290:18:30

Lauren uses a steady hand to perfect her carving.

0:18:300:18:34

Look! The thing's gone. What am I going to do?

0:18:340:18:38

Hide it with this piece of melon.

0:18:380:18:40

You have to cut, like, a triangle. Like a V.

0:18:400:18:43

Your time is up.

0:18:480:18:50

Rene must now decide who will become today's carving master chef.

0:18:500:18:55

Very exciting.

0:18:550:18:56

-What is this supposed to be?

-Fish melon.

-A fish?

0:18:590:19:02

It looks like a whale. Je deteste la baleine!

0:19:020:19:06

It makes me angry to gaze upon it. Argh!

0:19:060:19:09

And why is this full of holes?

0:19:090:19:12

Miss Fruit Carving Lady.

0:19:120:19:13

I do not like it.

0:19:250:19:27

I LOVE it!

0:19:270:19:29

From now on, you will carve all my fruit and vegetables.

0:19:290:19:33

Ah, oui! Oui!

0:19:330:19:35

Now, turn this melon into the Eiffel Tower. Allez!

0:19:350:19:39

-So, looking forward to celebrating your buddy's birthday?

-What? Oh.

0:19:560:20:00

-Do you think there'll be cake?

-Unlikely.

-Jelly?

-Probably not.

0:20:000:20:03

Do you think he'll manage to blow all his candles out at once?

0:20:030:20:06

On balance, I'd say, probably, no.

0:20:060:20:08

-There'd have to be about 2,500 candles on the cake.

-2,500?

0:20:080:20:12

-How old is this buddy?

-We're not celebrating my buddy's birthday.

0:20:120:20:16

We're celebrating the BUDDHA'S birthday.

0:20:160:20:19

-THE Buddha?

-Yes.

-Wow!

0:20:190:20:22

Do you think we'll play musical chairs?

0:20:220:20:24

Of course I'm not going to play musical chairs

0:20:240:20:26

on the Buddha's birthday.

0:20:260:20:27

Well, what do you know?

0:20:270:20:29

It's the Buddha's birthday and they are playing musical chairs,

0:20:290:20:32

but that's not all.

0:20:320:20:34

Here at the annual Mount Abu Summer Festival,

0:20:340:20:36

up to 20,000 people

0:20:360:20:37

have been turning up

0:20:370:20:39

in their best party clothes

0:20:390:20:40

since 1978 to celebrate the birthday

0:20:400:20:43

of the religious teacher Buddha.

0:20:430:20:46

The religion of Buddhism comes from his teachings.

0:20:460:20:49

Of all the fun and games at the Festival,

0:20:490:20:51

the highlight has got to be the pedalo boat race on Lake Nakki.

0:20:510:20:54

But more on that later. First, this.

0:20:540:20:57

Some warm-up nonsense involving a big stick

0:20:570:20:59

and these rather lovely pots.

0:20:590:21:01

It's genius. There's a pot on the ground.

0:21:010:21:05

Everyone everybody gets a chance to pace it out,

0:21:050:21:08

then you get your blindfold on and try and smash it with a stick.

0:21:080:21:12

Easy-peasy. Well, you'd think so.

0:21:120:21:15

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten...

0:21:150:21:21

I might skip it!

0:21:210:21:23

Do you think anyone's ever smashed this pot?

0:21:230:21:26

I'm not sure.

0:21:280:21:30

-Ha-ha!

-Oh-ho! They're having to actually stop them.

0:21:300:21:33

He's just tried to hit someone in the crowd!

0:21:330:21:35

Of course, Chris is outstanding at all sports,

0:21:400:21:42

so he should have this in the bag, really.

0:21:420:21:45

-You're up next.

-OK, next. Wish me luck.

0:21:450:21:48

All right, Chris! The crowd's ready for a laugh.

0:21:480:21:52

Good luck, Mr Chris!

0:21:520:21:54

Ah! Thanks, Ed.

0:21:540:21:56

Ha-ha-ha!

0:21:560:21:57

I've lost count of my steps already.

0:21:580:22:00

Oh! Oh!

0:22:000:22:02

Ah!

0:22:020:22:04

Ah!

0:22:040:22:06

Oh, oh!

0:22:080:22:10

Oh!

0:22:120:22:13

CHEERING

0:22:130:22:15

Oh! Did I get it?

0:22:160:22:18

Oh, well, halfway there!

0:22:190:22:22

Not bad. I managed to hit it at least.

0:22:240:22:26

Didn't crack it, but hit it.

0:22:260:22:27

Let's see how Ed does.

0:22:270:22:29

Oh! One, two, three, four, five,

0:22:300:22:34

six, seven, eight, nine, ten...

0:22:340:22:39

Oh! 11, 12...

0:22:390:22:41

13, 14, 15.

0:22:410:22:44

No-one's cheering, or getting particularly excited.

0:22:440:22:47

Oh, here we go!

0:22:470:22:49

CHEERING AND WHISTLES

0:22:490:22:51

Where was I?

0:22:540:22:55

I was way off!

0:22:550:22:57

Yes, Ed, you were way off, but you showed that sand who was boss!

0:22:570:23:01

I actually won that one!

0:23:010:23:04

-I'm a winner, apparently.

-You are winner.

0:23:050:23:07

The force is strong with this one,

0:23:100:23:13

when it comes to hitting pots with a stick.

0:23:130:23:15

All for me! Just saying.

0:23:150:23:18

All he did was hit a pot with a stick, that's all he did.

0:23:180:23:21

Stop being happy.

0:23:250:23:27

Next up, good old-fashioned...

0:23:270:23:29

Tug-of-war!

0:23:290:23:31

With garlands.

0:23:340:23:35

This was one of my favourite sports at Sports Day, Chris.

0:23:350:23:38

You're in trouble, now.

0:23:380:23:39

CHEERING AND WHISTLING

0:23:450:23:47

-Congratulations.

-Thank you very much. See?

0:23:500:23:52

-Congratulations.

-Adoring praise.

0:23:520:23:54

Thank you. Oh, see? There you go. That's how you do it.

0:23:540:23:57

Mount Abu is what's known as a hill station.

0:23:580:24:01

It can be ten degrees cooler up here than at the foot of the mountain.

0:24:010:24:05

So, it makes it an ideal place

0:24:050:24:07

for Indian people to come on their holidays.

0:24:070:24:10

-OK! The lake.

-Ah, yes!

-That's right.

0:24:100:24:13

The large body of water you see is the lake

0:24:130:24:15

and the visitors to Mount Abu do love a go on a pedalo.

0:24:150:24:20

A "pedal-go".

0:24:200:24:21

They love a "pedal-go".

0:24:210:24:23

And right here is where the main event race is going to take place.

0:24:230:24:27

First off, find yourself a boat.

0:24:270:24:30

Think these are perfect for us, Chris. They're evenly matched.

0:24:300:24:33

They're aerodynamic. They've got clear sightlines.

0:24:330:24:35

-It's the eyes, isn't it?

-I'll take this one.

0:24:350:24:37

I think it gives me a tactical advantage because it's a crocodile.

0:24:370:24:39

I'm going to take this one because you picked that one.

0:24:390:24:43

One thing, though - there are two seats in each one.

0:24:430:24:46

Yeah, you're right.

0:24:460:24:47

Looks like we've got to find ourselves some racing partners!

0:24:470:24:51

You can stop filming now.

0:24:520:24:54

-There! Look!

-Please, don't go yet.

0:24:540:24:56

You guys look like you like pedalos, do you want to be our racing team?

0:24:560:25:00

-Yeah!

-Brilliant. Looks like we found our racing partners!

0:25:000:25:03

Seriously. Stop filming now.

0:25:050:25:07

No. There's loads more stuff to film.

0:25:070:25:09

Starting with...

0:25:090:25:11

The rules to this race couldn't be simpler.

0:25:160:25:19

You and your racing partner pedal the boat as fast as you can

0:25:190:25:23

round the island and back.

0:25:230:25:24

Trying to beat the other nine pedalos.

0:25:240:25:26

Even Ed and Chris should manage that.

0:25:260:25:28

Right. Let's do this.

0:25:280:25:30

Three, two, one, pedal-a-go-go!

0:25:300:25:34

All right! Here we go. We're off! Nice strong stroke.

0:25:340:25:39

Don't steer into the camera boat. That wouldn't be a very good start.

0:25:390:25:42

Right, to the island!

0:25:420:25:44

-This is going well, Sandy, isn't it?

-Yes, come on! Fast.

0:25:460:25:49

We mustn't burn out, though. Crocodile all the way!

0:25:490:25:52

See you later, alligator!

0:25:520:25:54

What, are there flags on the island?

0:25:540:25:56

-Why is there flags on there?

-This is a temple.

0:25:560:25:58

Oh, it is a temple. Look. There's things on there.

0:25:580:26:01

Less sightseeing and more peddling required, Ed.

0:26:010:26:04

It's not just an island, it's a temple.

0:26:040:26:06

Yes. Yes. And this is meant to be a race.

0:26:060:26:08

OK. Somebody's going round the island the wrong way

0:26:090:26:13

and they're not the only one.

0:26:130:26:14

Just saying.

0:26:140:26:15

-Oh, look who it is!

-Oh, he so smug.

0:26:150:26:19

Go around that side!

0:26:190:26:20

What's wrong with this side?!

0:26:200:26:22

Who do you think is going to win, Chris?

0:26:220:26:24

I'll get back to you on that one.

0:26:240:26:27

Coming around the other side of the island. Oh, my bum really hurts.

0:26:290:26:32

-There's someone gaining on us!

-Yes, keep on! Keep on!

0:26:320:26:36

This is going really well.

0:26:360:26:37

I can't wait until Chris Johnson sees my victory dance. Ha-ha!

0:26:370:26:41

-Oh, my days!

-Ah, looks like we're going to come second or third.

0:26:410:26:46

That's great, Ed. That surely means you're going to beat Chris.

0:26:460:26:49

I suppose we win in a different way. We just stop and sail. Have a drink.

0:26:510:26:55

Enjoy the ride.

0:26:550:26:57

Yes! Second!

0:26:570:26:59

Oh, no!

0:27:010:27:02

Now, it's all over.

0:27:020:27:04

Well done, Sandy.

0:27:040:27:06

Good work. Very good work.

0:27:060:27:08

Oh, yeah!

0:27:080:27:10

Victory! Victory!

0:27:110:27:14

This is prestigious trophy, All Over The Place Asia

0:27:140:27:18

Ed Petrie and his CBBC mates go on an adventure to find the most unusual and amazing places in Asia. They try out tai chi with local pensioners in a park in China; explore Osaka Castle with its gold tearoom in Japan; stay in Japan to meet some legendary scary monsters called Namahage, who appear every New Year; carve up fruit into works of art in Thailand; and enter a pedalo boat race in India!

Ed is joined on this bonkers road trip by Cel Spellman, Susan Calman, Naomi Wilkinson, Johny Pitts, Lauren Layfield and Chris Johnson - there's stuff to do in Asia that is totally ace and it turns up All Over the Place!
