To find out why I'm racing this wheelie bin in Croatia
and trying not to do the same thing as this guy,
then keep watching. Oh, no!
Don't you worry, Ed, you'll never be a has-bin
because you're wheelie amazing, like this bunch.
Johny plays in a sandpit...
..Michelle dances her way round Paris...
Chris thinks Ed is his Viking wife...
..Iain seems a bit witchy...
Naomi forgets how to ride a bike...
-..and Victoria has an accident with a green pen!
# All over the place.
# All over the place.
# North, South, East, West, all of us are on a quest
# Me and my mates all over the place
# It's true what you've heard, everything is absurd
# Whatever we do, is strange but true
# All over the place
# All over the place
# It's got to do in Europe and it's totally ace
# And it turns up all over the place. #
The sport of finger wrestling has been
popular in Germany for over 300 years.
-That's unsafe as well.
-What are you doing, Ed?
I'm just doing a little check list of all the unsafe things.
You can never be too careful. Health and safety never takes a day off.
Health and safety?
Yes, you know, like tripping downstairs and falling over boxes.
Oh, yeah, like a massive weight landed on someone's head.
Don't be silly, Johny, that sort of thing only happens in cartoons.
You really need to up your game if you want to fit in here.
Actually, what is this place?
This, Johny, is DASA. It's a museum that explains
how to be safe at work.
It's got lots of whirry, spinny stuff that you'd find in places like
factories or offices and shows how you can avoid having an accident.
I wonder if they've got any big, round, cog-like thingies.
Exposed cogs - unsafe.
Ed, this is getting really boring now.
-You've been doing it all day.
-Well, I just thought...
Someone's fallen through the ceiling.
That's going on the safety check list.
It's just for experimental purposes. Everything is all right.
Don't worry, Ed, that's the museum director and he's very safe,
unlike going to work a century ago.
In 1913, over 178,000 accidents were reported in British factories alone.
It sounds like they could have done with some kind of safety guide!
-I'm Ed Backshall.
-I'm Johny Backshall.
And we're going to be delving deep into the health and safety jungle
to bring you the top three ways to get injured in the workplace.
-This is... BOTH:
In at number three, we have electrical injuries.
Electrical shocks happen
when an electrical current passes through your body.
Electrical currents are made up of vaults,
so the greater the current or vault, the greater the risk.
Always be extra specially careful around electricity.
In at number two, we have manual handling,
which means moving heavy stuff like boxes.
If you're lifting something that is heavy or lifting it incorrectly,
you could hurt yourself, unless you've got big muscles like me.
In at number one, we have the deadliest of them all,
the dreaded slips, trips and falls.
and falling accounts for more injuries than anything else.
That is your deadly top three.
I think I grazed my knee.
This is the PC14R-2 mini-excavator!
It can scoop up 55kgs of stuff in one go.
That's nearly the same weight as Justin Bieber!
What are you doing? Health and safety is not extreme.
This is to teach people how to use diggers safely.
Let's see if you can find any other unsafe things
in this so-called museum of health and safety.
Wicked, a flight simulator. I love these things.
Don't touch that, Johny, might not be safe.
-It's not a real aeroplane, Ed.
-You sure about that, Johny?
-You sure about that?
You can't be too careful when it comes to airline health and safety.
Ladies and gentlemen, we're now making our final approach, so in just
a couple of moments, we'll have you on the ground, safe and sound.
Well, this doesn't seem very safe to me.
Occupational health and safety inspector. Need to do a spot check.
Excuse me, I'm in the middle of something very important here.
It's your middle that I'm worried about.
We need to get you a better chair. Oh, doesn't seem to move.
Of course it doesn't move. It's 250kg and designed
to withstand G-Force.
Never mind G-Force, where's your water fountain?
You need to remain hydrated all day
if you're going to operate this equipment.
Water fountain? We can't have a water fountain in here.
These are very delicate instruments. What about turbulence?
-Oh, yes, this is clearly set up all wrong. You're very tense.
-I'm trying to land this aeroplane.
-And stressed. Come on, off we go.
-Don't make me mark you down.
-Do you know how dangerous this is?
Very, very dangerous.
Muscle strain is one of the top five workplace injuries.
Talking about you trying to land this plane!
Please. How hard can it be?
-Don't touch that!
-Have you had a screen break?
-I didn't think so.
-Stretch your legs, leave it to me.
-But, you've got...
A well-rested pilot is a safe pilot. Off you go.
Some people have no respect for safety in the workplace.
I do love my job.
Warning, warning, leaving Earth's atmosphere!
In Denmark, you need special permission to give a baby
a name that isn't on the approved list!
I am Viking God, Thor.
I come to Earth to sail my mighty long ship across the oceans
and to conquer new territories,
just as soon as I actually finish building it,
because it's not finished.
-Don't like my costume very much.
The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde is the top
place to come in Denmark if you're into Viking ships!
As well as the remains of real 1,000 year old ships,
they've also rebuilt replica vessels that can be sailed today!
So, I guess the first question to ask is, who were the Vikings?
The Vikings were the people who lived in Norway, Sweden
and Denmark, modern day Scandinavia, and it's not a word they would
have used themselves, it's a term that became used later
to describe people who sailed off during the period we now know
as the Viking Age.
-Tell me, when is the feast ready?
It's best just to smile and say nothing.
These ships are far from seaworthy. They're clearly past their prime.
They were past their prime 1,000 years ago.
These were ships people didn't want any more
and they filled them up full of rocks and sank them
to create a barrier to stop people getting into the bay.
If Thor was on the job, he would have ensured their guaranteed return.
Are you going to keep this up all day, Chris?
I think he is, for better or Thor worse!
The Vikings used ships like these to sail far and wide, all over
the place, in fact, and settled in places
such as Canada, Greenland, Iceland, France and the UK!
These boats must have been pretty sturdy!
Thor could build an entire one of these in a mere afternoon.
-No, he couldn't.
-Yes, I could.
-No, he couldn't.
-Yes, I can.
Besides, what does one of these fine vessels look like once
Funny enough, there's a guy in a dodgy grey wig
and a pink jacket getting into one over there.
You should go and ask him.
And now, on All Over The Place, it's...
What do you mean, it's historically inaccurate?
I'll stick what I like on the side of my helmet.
Hello and welcome to Hammer Time.
-Give me that.
A game where you can win a village to pillage.
If you don't win, you'll get hammered over the head
and thrown overboard.
Which of these did the Vikings not use to navigate?
Was it the stars, the sun or a map?
-Clearly, the sun.
It was actually a map. They didn't even have maps.
How could they use them if they didn't even exist for the Vikings?
-You're a very angry individual.
-You can talk.
You're a Viking. Right, you've got to steer the ship now, steer it.
-All right, grab this one.
-You might have to work a little bit.
When you steer, if you want to go to the left, you push forward.
-If you want to go right, you pull it in a bit.
Look at the front of the sail. It starts to flap,
-so you have to go right.
How did Vikings propel their ships when there was no wind?
Using oars, by belching up wind, like I do
when I've had lots of cheese,
or did they use swans tied up with bits of string?
-Quite clearly, its oars.
-That's correct. You get a bonus prize.
-You get to do something with the sail.
-What? I just hold this?
Quite easy for Thor. Ah!
As you can see, I'm holding a shield.
-It's lovely, isn't it?
What did the Vikings do with their shields when they were sailing?
Did they skim them across the sea at enemies? Did they...?
Things are getting a bit hairy on the boat.
Did they hang them out the way over the side of the ship, or did
they use them as plates to eat their dinner off?
-I think that's why this still smells of broccoli.
Well, the first and third option seem unlikely,
so I imagine that they hung them over the side of the ship.
-Incorrect. It was none of those options.
-So it was a trick question?
-So, it wasn't fair.
You're a Viking and you complain about things not being fair?
Well, you only got one question right,
so that means that you don't win a village to pillage.
-Instead, you're going to be buried at sea.
-Set fire to the boat.
-Vikings didn't set fire to their boats for funerals.
Can we put that out please? Oh, dear. Ah!
No Norse Gods nor game show hosts were harmed
in the making of Hammer Time!
The Louvre in Paris is the most visited art museum in the world!
Oh, Paris, the capital of France and one of the most beautiful
and romantic cities in the world.
So many amazing things here, but how do you decide what to do?
Hold tight for a three-minute whistle-stop tour of all
the top sites. Ready, steady, allez, allez, allez.

Too late, that's three minutes.
In Dutch, Netherlands actually means low country.
Roll up, roll up! Ten euros a trick!
-Give it...give it... Give it here, give it here.
-How did you do that?!
-It's easy, man!
That's nothing, look at this! Tell me what colour you think these are.
Green and yellow, obviously.
-Say it one more time.
-Green and yellow.
-Boom! You'd be wrong!
-Blue and red.
They are blue and red, sir.
That's the only possible explanation.
That is actual witchcraft. He's a witch! Witch!
-He's a witch!
-I'm not a witch!
-Excuse me, he's a witch.
-I most certainly am not!
-You are! Look at his hat, that is a witch's hat!
-A witch's hat is black!
Oh! This building in Oudewater can settle their argument,
as it houses the oldest set of witch-weighing scales in Europe.
From the 15th to the 17th century, people accused of witchcraft
would flock here to be weighed on the town scales.
It was the only place in Europe
where they could issue official certificates of innocence.
Witches found guilty would be drowned or burned at the stake.
Sounds painful, but luckily all those that were weighed here
were found innocent.
Ed and Iain, you have 26 seconds to find out as much as you can
about the witch-weighing scales!
Ed, you have Jeanette, who knows all about witches.
Iain, you have Walther, who knows about the scales.
Drie, twee, een, gaan!
-Are you a witch?
-How tall are they?
-How tall are they?
Well, I think about 3.5 metres.
Um, am I a witch?
-How do they work?
-How do they work?
-Stand on it. I'll show.
I'm on them. Oh!
Oh! It's gone horribly wrong! We've not got the time, Walther.
Get back over here!
-Can a man be a witch?
You burn in the same way as we do. HOOTER GOES
I'm quite glad we ran out of time, there.
The winner is...
-Oh, yes, brilliant!
Don't get ahead of yourself, Ed,
because Jeanette is going to find out...
-are you a witch?
And the first step is...the interrogation.
Are you dancing with cats in the night?
No, I'm more a dog man!
Some people don't know that they're a witch, but they are.
-No, I'm not.
-I saw that.
Do you cook food at home?
-The devil's definitely not invited.
So you know him!
-It's Jamie Oliver!
-He's the man you're after!
-Do you love goats?
Erm, I have on occasion drunk goat's milk.
-I'm not a witch!
You can say that, but witches always lie.
How did you get here?
-I flew here. Oh, no!
Or you have to go on the scale.
I'll go on the scale.
The boys have agreed to be weighed.
Step two - the witch weigh.
Historically, the officials would measure the height of the people
so that they could compare it to the weight.
If they were thought to be too light for their height,
then they would be a witch!
Nobody on these scales has ever been proved to be a witch?
-Nobody was guilty here.
So you have a chance.
-I don't think you're a witch.
-I'm not a witch!
-He's not a witch.
So Ed's off the hook and Iain's up next on the scales of justice.
Before I get weighed, a few things...
Ed, if you just take that.
-Hold on to that.
Well, that's not a good start!
-I am tall.
-You might be tall, Iain, but it's not all about height.
And Judith has decided that the scales are tipped against you!
-I'm a witch!
-Iain has been found guilty, but don't worry,
he isn't really a witch and he won't be burned at the stake.
Some witches are easier to spot than others.
toil and trouble...
SHE COUGHS AND HACKS
I have SO got to get a microwave.
Excuse me! Hi, there.
I'm the local witch finder and I'm just checking to see
if there are any witches in the area.
Do you know? I don't think I've seen a witch around here since...
oh, around the 17th century,
-give or take a few days.
Cos I couldn't help noticing...
Well, you have got a witch's hat.
No, no, not at all!
"A tall," that's it.
You see, the thing is,
the people of the Netherlands
are officially the tallest people in the world.
And I'm a bit of a shortie-pants,
so I wear this hat to make myself look taller, see?
-What about the green face?
-But this isn't real.
No! I drew it on myself
with a pen because, duh,
the national colour of the Netherlands is green.
Actually, it's orange.
Perhaps I shouldn't have used permanent ink either.
Well, at least it proves you're not a witch.
I was getting a bit worried there for a minute.
Thought you were going to turn me into a cheese or something.
I'm not sure how I did that.
Well, I'm not a witch!
I'm not a witch!
I'm not a witch!
Croatian money is called "kuna" and "lipa",
which means "rodent" and "lime tree".
There are two things in life that we just love.
Isn't that right, Naomi 'Wiggo' Wilkinson?
Too true, Ed Lee 'Wiggo' Petrie!
And that's cycling...
So imagine how excited we were when we found out we'd be racing...
three-wheeled rubbish bins.
You won't see me for dust.
Can I take these sideburns off now?
Naomi, you're wearing the right gear.
I don't think the bike's in the right gear though.
Well, you two just might clean up
in Zagreb's annual street festival.
It's called "Cest is d'Best"
and features more than 300 street performers
and musicians from all over the world.
But the main event today is a dustcart race,
where real-life bin men race their real-life wheelie bins.
So you two better try and keep in with the locals
if you want to take part.
Get a job at CBBC, they said. It's a glamorous life, they said.
-There's a piece of old chewing gum there. Do you want to grab that?
Ed and Naomi, time to pump up your tyres and limber up!
It's training time.
Here's a cheeky little bike race to get you whipped into shape -
or at least try to - before the wheelie-bin bicycle race.
But, no, it's not as easy as you think.
So, Naomi, do you understand the rules of this bike race?
-Yeah, of course.
-First across the line is the...
-You've got to try and go as...
No, slow as you can.
-It's a slow bike race.
-All right, then.
Better get on d'bike, and be d'best.
No, I'm going to be d'best on d'bike.
Have you done this before?
Oh! Oh, we distracted him.
The rules are, you have to cycle as slowly as you can
to the finish line.
You can't cycle backwards.
And if your feet touch the ground, it's game over!
Weirdly, it's the person that takes the longest who's the winner.
-What a show off!
-Who wants to be able to do that anyway?
-Go! Show them how it's done.
Out of my way!
-Go, go, go.
-Slow, slow, slow!
Well done, Ed. You did it in 22 seconds,
but will that be fast enough? I mean, slow enough?
Right, Naomi, you're next!
How sloooow can you goooo?
-Fast as you like, Naomi.
-No, slow, slow.
All right, come on, real slow. Real slow.
Ooh! Ooh, ooh!
-Come on, 18!
Oh, no. Naomi! You've put your foot in it.
Gutted! Gutted. Look at that face.
The judge didn't see your fault...
-At the very last centimetre, you failed.
-They didn't see my foot go down, so they said I won.
30 seconds to your 22.
-No, I saw it. I saw it. Your foot touched the floor.
Judges' decision is final, and all that.
-Well, anyway. I'm glad you won(!) I'm glad you won.
Because it means you were the slowest,
which means I'm going to win the actual race.
The name "Cest is d'Best" means "Street is the Best"
and this is the oldest street festival in Croatia.
It lasts for five days and there are 50,000 visitors each day.
This is the festival's 18th year.
Can you give us top tips of riding this kind of bike?
Meet Ivica, who is a champion dustcart racer.
You need to have strong legs and great stability, that's all.
Oh, great stability? We didn't have much of that in the slow bike race.
Yeah, we did terrible at that. Is it very competitive?
-Oh, yeah. It is.
-People get competitive about anything, don't they?
Even racing bins.
MAN SPEAKING Are all the instructions in Croatian?
They are and I have no idea what they're saying.
Well, let me translate for you.
You have to go as fast as you can around the horseshoe-like course.
First past the finish line, is the winner. Simple!
But before you race each other,
let's have a quick warm-up lap with the professionals.
Oh, no! This is serious stuff.
I think that guy really hurt himself.
I wasn't the most rubbish!
Don't look so scared, Naomi. It's only a practise run.
I think slow and steady wins this race. WHISTLE
No, not slow and steady.
Fast and furious. Get peddling!
Come on, Naomi. You're last. Get a move on, girl!
I'm so slow, I'm so slow.
CHEERING This is so embarrassing!
Hooray, I didn't fall off!
-It's a bit scary on the corner.
-I'm just proper rubbish.
Right, you two, training and warm ups over.
This is it. It's the big one.
Time to go head-to-head for the All Over The Place trophy.
But who is going to be left for dust in the dustcart race?
Three, two, one, go!
-Here we go.
Ed's speeding ahead.
Oh, no! Argh! Oh, no.
Aw, Naomi's off to a rubbish start.
It's really scary going round the corners!
Come on, Naomi, see if you can catch him.
Where is she? Argh!
-I said they were dangerous.
-That is frightening.
I don't ever want to do that again.
-Winner of this year dustcart is Ed. Ed!
-This is your award.
Thank you, Zagreb.
-Well done. Well done. Oh, well. It's BIN a good laugh!
-And the nice thing is, you get a prize as well.
There you go. Those bins need emptied. Off you go.
You've been watching All Over The Place - Europe!
Ed Petrie and the crew explore the world's safest museum in Germany, sail a Viking longboat in Denmark, take a whistle-stop tour of Paris, discover a giant scale for weighing witches in the Netherlands and compete in a wheelie bin race through the streets of Zagreb in Croatia.
