-OVER THE TOP CALIFORNIAN ACCENT:
-Looking extreme, dude!
Feeling extreme, dude!
Bodacious. Today we're going to do something totally rad.
We're going to travel almost as fast as the motorway speed limit.
Can't wait to start ripping the gnarl, dude!
Actually, dude, there's no powder to shred
because it's summer.
But it's OK because there's still something totally extreme
we can do.
Say hello to the wheelbob.
AMERICAN ACCENT: That is extreme!
This bobsleigh track was built for the 1994 Winter Olympics.
But, even in summer when there's no ice, you can still race down it
Yeah, a bobsleigh on wheels!
And those wheels whizz you down the 1.7km course at speeds of up to...
That's like travelling at high-speed on a motorway in a car
with no windows, doors, or even an engine!
I suppose it's just like being on a really fast go-kart.
Exactly, that's the spirit. And the good thing is we don't have to
drive it ourselves. We have a pilot.
Oh, well, as long as it requires no effort on my part, I'm in.
Hiya. Welcome to Lillehammer.
Put these on and we're ready to go.
Nope, I'm still scared. I think we need to know a bit more about this!
-Excuse me, excuse me.
I just want to know, before we go hurtling down this,
what does it feel like travelling at a 100km per hour in one of those?
Well, you experience three G-forces, so I imagine the bizarre feeling of
-not being able to keep your head up.
-Can't keep your head up?
Well, you have to struggle to keep it up.
And the reason you might struggle is all to do with gravity.
Normal gravity on earth has a force of 1g.
But, as our pilot said, when you're whizzing round the bends
on the wheelbob, you can feel three times that force, or 3g.
You might have felt a G-force like that if
you've ever been on a roller-coaster.
It's that feeling of being forced into your seat you get
when it goes round a bend at high-speed.
Oh, no. Oh, no.
Oh, here we go.
Is it too late to get out?
-Good luck, Ed.
-Good luck, Mia.
Oh, here we go!
-Here we go. Stay upright, stay proud.
-It's easy so far!
Oh, my word.
Oh, my word.
-Oh, my word!
This is faster than any roller-coaster I've ever been on!
We haven't even got past number six yet, that's the fastest!
-Oh. Oh, dear.
That's one of the funniest things I've ever done.
I've never... I mean, obviously, I have gone faster than that
in my life. I've never felt like I'm going that fast.
I wasn't actually capable of any thought other than,
-Oh, my goodness.
-My brain's still not started working.
-Who knew you could have so much fun without snow?
Welcome back to Animal Attraction.
The going out show with a difference.
Now, last week we paired up this unlikely couple.
From the arctic up north, it's Polar Bear.
-And, from the Antarctic,
all the way down south, it's Emperor Penguin.
-All right, Bez.
So, today we find out if opposites attract,
or was it a case of, "No snowy, no showy."
Being an emperor penguin - the biggest of all penguins -
I wasn't daunted by dating someone over 720kg,
or the same weight as 12 Katy Perrys.
And, for once, you won't hear me roar because
I knew he'd have a warm personality.
Ha-ha! I mean, after all, he can survive in temperatures
up to minus 40 degrees centigrade.
I mean, that's two times colder than a fridge-freezer.
I loved Polar Bear's soft fur which, turns out, isn't white,
Ha-ha, so you can see right to my heart!
Actually, it's transparent because each hair is a clear hollow tube
and each hollow hair reflects the light
and gives me a warm glow inside, just like my ickle penguin.
So, will there be a second date?
Maybe you can take Polar Bear for another meal, Penguin.
Oh, that'd be absolutely lovely and, do you know what?
I've got a fantastic sense of smell when it comes to hunting for food,
and I'm not a fussy eater at all.
I mean, if I can't find a seal... Seals are my favourite,
but if I can't find one, I'm not fussy. I'll eat anything.
Fish, eggs, seabirds.
-Oh, no, no, it's not a problem.
I'm just trying to explain that I'm not a fussy eater, Barry.
Not at all.
Looks like someone's got cold feet...
-..and there's not even any snow!
-I guess we were just...
-There's one thing you must never say
-to a Hungarian.
-Yeah, what's that?
Oh, hi. I've just realised something.
Mate, I'm hungry...in Hungary!
Are you a hungry Hungarian too?
Barney, that's what I was trying to tell you.
-You must never say you're hungry in Hungary to a Hungarian.
-I'm so sorry!
Also, Ed, you probably shouldn't shout loudly in English.
It's a bit rude!
But, if you really are hungry, then you've come to the right place.
This is the August Bakery and Cafe.
For 145 years, the signature bake here has been a vanilla custard slice
called a kremes.
Hungarians can't get enough of these traditional pastries.
200 of them are gobbled up every day at this cafe.
As the pastry is quite complicated to make at home,
kremes are usually eaten out in patisseries and cafes.
Time to put Barney through his pastry paces as he's going head-to-head
with the king of the kremes - Norbert.
FRENCH ACCENT: Europe's tastiest food, France's toughest critic.
He's better than you, it's...
-EXAGGERATED FRENCH ACCENT:
-What is taking you so long?
I, Rene Mangetout, am about to set you one of the hardest challenges
of your entire worthless lives.
Harder than this wooden rolling pin.
-Only one... Ahem.
Only one of you will be crowned Hungarian MasterChef.
Your challenge is to see who can make
the most delicieuse and tasty kremes.
-So, we put it on the sheeter.
Do you use a machine like this because,
if you were going to roll it out, it would just take hours?
-You can do it also by hand.
-How many kremes bakeries are there?
There are many, but we have three shops where we bake this.
-That's a genius way to move it.
-And just place it here.
-That's clever. OK.
Alle, alle, alle! Veet, veet! You must put the pastry on the trays!
Why is the pastry not on the trays?!
It... It... It is on the trays.
Yes! This is...
not smooth enough. Make that smooth!
So we should take it out from the oven.
-They look great, don't they? Egg whites in to the whisker.
You might want to come back in about an hour.
Aw, that smells amazing.
This is why you see not many chefs in gyms.
They don't need to because they get their workout right here
in the kitchen.
What is taking you so long?
Tilly Ramsay would have had it done ten hours ago!
I really hope Rene Mangetout appreciates the work
that's gone into this, you know.
Rene must now decide who will be crowned kremes MasterChef.
-It's terribly tense.
-There you go, monsieur.
Mr Howard, this looks like scrambled eggs made by a two-year-old
for the world's worst teddy bear's picnic.
Disgusting! Ah! Bleugh!
Avert your face to me, monsieur! I cannot look upon you!
Mr Pastry Chef Man...
I do not like it.
I love it!
My tongue has died and gone to vanilla custard heaven, monsier!
Je t'aime, monsieur! Je t'aime!
Aw! Aw, c'est bon! Ha-ha-ha!
Now, clear this mess up.
# This Gothic city is home to legends miserable and dark
# If you're brave then I could tell you the legends of Prague
# I need to know now, know now, can you please tell me so?
# The darker the better
# Then I'll tell you the legend of the Golem
# In the 16th century a Jewish rabbi worried no-one
# Would protect his people if he was to die
# So he made the Golem moulded from clay
# He said some sacred words and it came alive
-# Pretty scary, eh? #
# The most terrifying monster Prague has ever seen
# Essentially a monster that's made of Plasticine
# The rabbi destroyed his Golem
# Some say it has come back. #
# Ooh, look they've named the cafe after him!
# Fancy a snack?
# I need to know more, know more,
# That doesn't give me a fright
# Tell me another
# Then I'll tell you the legend of the Iron Knight...
-# The story goes there was a knight
# whose partner he adored
# But in a jealous fit of rage he killed her with his sword
# With her last breath she cursed him, to iron he was turned
# Only once every 100 years to human form he'll be returned
# I need to know more, know more
# Sad tales I enjoy
# Tell me another
# Then I'll tell you the legend of the Stone Boy
# There was a young boy on a rooftop who was pulling a face
# A priest saw him and then turned him to stone in his place...
# I need to know more, know more
# Tell me the saddest of all
# I need to know more
# Well there is one as long as you're sure
I could tell you the legend of the man who made
this astronomical clock. He was blinded by a masked mob,
as there had been rumours that he was making a clock for another town.
When he found out why he'd been attacked, he vowed revenge
and visited the clock.
And feeling his creation beneath his fingers,
he was overwhelmed with sadness and destroyed it.
At which point, his heart broke and he fell, lifeless to the floor.
Aw, that's really sad.
Just the way I like it!
How To Train Your Dragon. "Step one, find a dragon."
"Find a dragon." "Find a dragon ?!"
Where are we going to find a dragon in the middle of Slovakia?
And I was hoping to skip to Step Five,
"Train Your Dragon To Toast Marshmallows."
-..We pay a visit to the Ice Cave.
It's also known as...
the Dragon Cave!
DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS
I suppose it's as good a place to start as any.
Right, let's go and find a dragon to train.
-Why do you keep hiccupping?
I don't know, it happens every time
-I talk about training a dragon.
See, it just happened then!
Next you'll be telling me you're a Viking.
Maybe Johny needs a fright to get rid of those hiccups.
Well, this is the Dragon Cave after all.
But it's hard to imagine a fiery dragon living here.
It's freezing all year round
and so cold that there are even icy columns in summer.
But the word on the street is that the
bones of a dragon are hidden deep in its depths.
SHOUTING: Ed and Johny, you have 32 seconds to find
out as much as you can about the Demanovska Dragon Cave!
Ed, you've got Michal, who's a tour guide and knows the cave inside out!
Johny, you've got Peter, who works for the caves
and knows the cave outside in!
HE SPEAKS LOCAL LANGUAGE
How long is this cave?
More than 2,400m.
Is there really a dragon in the cave?
-No, but we do have the bones
of other animals here.
-How deep is this cave?
Is there really ice here in the summer?
Yes, of course. This is an ice cave, there's ice here all year round.
-Who discovered the cave?
Could I go up to the ice with a massive hammer and smash it up
-and put it in a glass of cola and drink it?
How did the cave get formed?
-It was formed by the river Demanovka.
Thank you, I think we did pretty well there. Yeah, come on.
And the person who found out the most facts is...
You CAVED into the pressure!
Now for your next challenge, it's DSI.
Find the legendary bones and solve the mystery.
Are they, in actual fact, dragon bones?
-What does DSI stand for?
# Who are you
# Who, who, who, who #
Maybe try taking your sunglasses off, Sergeant Pitts,
we're in a cave.
Nah, I'm doing fine, boss.
Looks like we found some remains. The remains of an ice column.
In the winter, this column would stretch all the way
to the ceiling of the cave.
Really? It just looks like rocks to me, boss.
It's over here.
I really would recommend taking off those sunglasses.
All right, Sergeant Pitts, we've got
to start our search for the bones of the deceased.
Sure thing, boss. I mean, Lieutenant Petrie.
You'd better use this to collect the evidence.
If you just, erm... Could you..
Boss, look over there! What do you think they are?
Well, using my superior knowledge of DNA, I'd say that they are...
A big pile of bones.
Now where's that evidence you collected?
-I thought I'd keep my doughnut fresh.
-Who's bones are they, boss?
Well, something to BEAR in mind, is that they've been here since
at least 1672 and they were first discovered
by a man called JP Hain.
-Whose bones could they be?
-They could only be the remains of a bear.
DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS
Well, can I eat my doughnut now?
No, I'm afraid I'm hungry.
I mean, I need to take it back to the lab.
Sorry, boys, no real dragon bones here,
but maybe a proper archaeologist would have a bit more luck.
We're about to search the Earth for ancient peoples, their lives
Let's do some archaeology.
-Bark-aeology, more like!
-Ha-ha, good one!
-Let's dig up some bones.
Yes, yes, but before we start, have you brought the correct tools?
Ha-ha, yes, leave it to us, Trowel-face.
We know how to dig for bones.
It's not just about bones, us archaeologists also discover
human history and tree history from seeds and types of soil.
He don't half go on, don't he? I'm ravenous!
Here, boney, boney, boney!
If we're lucky, we might find something wondrous.
Like the 8,000 life-saved soldiers of the Terracotta Army,
from the third century BC,
discovered just four decades ago in China.
I'm a terryacotta soldier! Look at me arm-ies! Whoa!
Maybe we'll unearth an entire Roman town, perfectly preserved.
Like Pompeii, which disappeared under volcanic ash in 79 AD.
Eh? You've disappeared now!
What's going on?
-Oh, all we've dug up is a load of old tat.
Urgh, yes, archaeology can be frustrating.
All I've managed to uncover is this dinosaur relic.
I suppose I better donate it to the Natural History Museum.
-No! No, you're all right.
-We'll take it off your hands.
Awfully kind of you.
And if you wouldn't mind making sure they...
Got any gravy?
I can't believe we've managed to find such massive pumpkins.
Oh, yeah. We're going to have the biggest pumpkins by miles.
-So what's this event?
-The Pumpkin Regatta.
You do know what a regatta is, don't you?
Yeah, it's a sporting event consisting of a series of boats
Yeah, so how we going to fit in these?
We're not going to fit in these, but we will in those.
Just squash yourself in, Ed,
because this is the Pumpkin Regatta at Ludwigsburg palace,
And, yes, you two really will be sailing in giant pumpkins.
But it's not all about pumpkin paddling,
they've created an entire festival of all shapes and sizes.
In fact, there are over 50,000 pumpkins here.
This is all very nice and everything,
but someone needs to tell these people there are other vegetables.
Well, you know, pumpkins aren't actually a vegetable. It's a berry.
-What, that is a berry?
Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Oi, voice-over man, she thinks that's a berry!
Michelle's right, Ed.
Pumpkins are actually a kind of squash plant, or berry
and they can get very, berry big.
The world record for the largest pumpkin was broken here last
year, with a pumpkin weighing in at 1,054kg.
That's about 19 Taylor Swifts.
Go ahead, Ed Armstrong.
This space rocket appears to be made entirely of pumpkins.
-Get me out of here!
Still can't believe you've never tasted pumpkin.
Although, personally, I'm not a big fan. I find it quite PLANE.
Forget flying, Ed.
You two need to concentrate on paddling, for the main event,
the Pumpkin Regatta.
He's getting quite a bit of water in his boat.
-He's putting a lot of effort in and not going very far.
Have you got any paddling tips for us?
He lost, don't ask him.
You have to get tips from the winner, not from me.
Well, better luck next year.
-Yes, thank you, bye.
One man who can give you some top tips, is the event organiser,
pumpkin pro, Mathias.
And he's got a job for you two.
OK, Mathias, what can we do to help?
Hello, yeah, you can scoop the pumpkin out.
-Scoop the pumpkin?
-With an ice cream scoop?
-With this, or with your hands.
-I'll go for my hands.
-Why not? Let's get stuck in.
-I think it's better with your hands, yeah.
Oh, it's pretty slimy, isn't it?
I'm going to get my hands in there.
-Is this why these pumpkins are so big?
-The seeds, yeah.
-How long do they take to grow, Matthias?
-Only four months.
-To grow one of these?
-Like small pumpkins.
Whose idea was it to use a pumpkin?
It was our idea, from the pumpkin festival.
Since 12 years we've had a race here.
And do people fall in?
-Oh, some people fall in.
-Some people fall in!
Let's hope they don't take a tumble.
Time for some training.
How does this work then?
-And then go in the pumpkin and on your knees.
And on your knees, on your knees. It's no problem.
It's wobbly! I might get seasick.
How do I turn around?
-How do I turn around?
-With a bit of patience, Michelle...
It's quite nice, this, actually.
I think I've got it, Ed.
..and a lot of practice.
Oh, I think it's leaking, actually. I feel very wet.
Next up, it's Ed.
Let's see how Petrie paddles.
You look really happy about this, Ed.
Yeah, I'm having loads of fun already!
-Oh, my knees are getting really soggy!
-I know, yeah.
You might end up with a soggy bottom if you fall in. Focus, Ed.
-I think I've got the hang of this.
-You look very balanced, actually.
Ed, you're doing really well at this.
-This is quite annoying.
-Do you think I'm really good?
You just did that turn seamlessly.
It looks like you're walking in the water wearing a giant pumpkin dress.
# I'm walking in the water. #
I'm a bit worried now, Ed, cos you did that really well.
-Do you think I did?
-I was feeling confident, but now, I don't!
I think I might smash Michelle like a pumpkin after that.
With practice over, it's time to find out the rules.
Ed and Michelle have to row, row, row their boats for 50m,
around the edge of Castle Lake.
But there's no danger of knocking each other over,
because they'll be setting out from opposite sides of the lake
and they'll only meet again at the pumpkin pontoon.
First to the finish line will be crowned Pumpkin King, or Queen!
Just don't forget to plant your paddle on the platform to seal
The time has come.
Yeah! Team Ed!
Ed and Michelle are poised in their pumpkins.
Paddles at the ready...
Three! Two! One! Pumpkin!
Oh, no! This thing's hardly moving.
Michelle is struggling to even, well, move.
It's so hard!
I don't want to be a pumpkin paddler!
Where is she?
Oh, it's so wet! Where am I going?!
Oh, Michelle's crashed into the edge! Bruised pride and bruised berry boat.
But, luckily for Michelle, Ed is rubbish too.
At the halfway mark, Michelle is starting to catch up!
No! She's gaining on me!
Michelle is pumping some serious paddle and she picks up the pace.
It's neck and neck, with the finish in sight!
No! Oh, no!
The home straight!
-And Ed lands the killer blow!
The pumpkin paddle seals victory for Team Ed!
Let's see that again.
Michelle looked like she had it in the bag.
Only for pumpkin pro Petrie to send her packing.
And the winner is, Ed! Ed, congratulations!
-Thank you! I am the Pumpkin King!
-I've still got a soggy bottom.
So have I.
You've been watching All Over The Place Europe!
