Ed sings his way through Europe with Naomi,

getting a bit flappy...

0:00:050:00:07

Victoria, feeling a little clappy...and Sam Smith!

0:00:070:00:11

No, wait, that's Johny.

0:00:110:00:13

Meanwhile, Michelle's on a tour in France,

0:00:130:00:15

Iain tries to break-dance

0:00:150:00:17

and Chris is a mermaid?

0:00:170:00:19

Well, here we are, Iain. Rome.

0:00:300:00:32

The capital city of Italy on our last day in Europe.

0:00:320:00:36

Thanks for letting me be in charge of the schedule, man.

0:00:360:00:38

-It's a real honour.

-I trust you completely.

0:00:380:00:41

-So, what's the plan for the day?

-Very simple.

0:00:410:00:43

1000-1100, we're getting our hair done.

0:00:430:00:46

1100-1200, we're going to sort of look at our hair.

0:00:460:00:50

1200-1300 is lunch, with some hair-based touch-ups.

0:00:500:00:54

1300-1400, you just sort of focus on your own hair at that point.

0:00:540:00:57

And then 1500 we go home. Perfect.

0:00:570:01:01

That just leaves us 30 minutes to look at the whole of Rome.

0:01:020:01:05

-Yeah, but your hair's going to look great.

-Thanks, mate. Come on!

0:01:050:01:08

What are we doing? We need to get cracking!

0:01:080:01:10

OK, first thing to have a look at is the Aventine Keyhole.

0:01:100:01:14

Apparently if you look through it, you see the best view in Italy.

0:01:140:01:17

Come on!

0:01:170:01:20

# All over the place

0:01:200:01:23

# All over the place

0:01:230:01:24

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

0:01:240:01:28

# Me and my mates All over the place!

0:01:280:01:30

# It's true what you've heard Everything is absurd

0:01:300:01:33

# Whatever we do is strange but true!

0:01:330:01:35

# All over the place

0:01:350:01:38

# All over the place

0:01:380:01:40

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

0:01:400:01:43

-# And it turns up...

-# ..all over the place! #

0:01:430:01:46

-Ed, are you sure we've got the right keyhole?

-Maybe clean your glasses.

0:01:580:02:03

Now look.

0:02:050:02:07

Whoa! I can see St Peter's Dome all the way in the Vatican.

0:02:070:02:12

Yeah. And did you know St Peter's is the largest church in the world?

0:02:120:02:16

That's an amazing fact, Ed.

0:02:160:02:18

Not unlike the amazing places we've been in this series

0:02:180:02:22

-of All Over the Place Europe.

-Yeah.

0:02:220:02:25

Did I tell you about that time Naomi and I visited Croatia

0:02:250:02:28

and the town that's been completely taken over by storks?

0:02:280:02:30

We don't have time to talk about that.

0:02:300:02:32

We've only got around 28 minutes left. Come on, let's go.

0:02:320:02:35

You can just watch the song. Wait for me.

0:02:350:02:38

# It might seem crazy what you're about to see

0:02:410:02:44

# In Cigoc houses don't have chimneys

0:02:470:02:50

# This might be hard to get into your head

0:02:530:02:56

# But they've got stork nests up there instead

0:02:590:03:02

# And they are flappy

0:03:030:03:05

# Flap along if you spot a stork up on the roof

0:03:050:03:09

# That's where they make their nests

0:03:110:03:13

# I swear that it's the truth

0:03:130:03:16

# You can bring a telescope if you want a better view

0:03:180:03:21

# And see it up real close just what storks get up to

0:03:230:03:28

# There are stork nests as far as I can see

0:03:290:03:31

# Man and nature living in harmony

0:03:340:03:38

# 200 have made this their home

0:03:410:03:44

# They outnumber the humans two-to-one

0:03:470:03:50

-# And they are...

-Flappy

0:03:520:03:54

# Flap along if you spot a stork up on the roof

0:03:540:03:57

# That's where they make their nests

0:03:590:04:01

# I swear that it's the truth

0:04:010:04:03

-# Flappy

-They spend the summer here

0:04:040:04:07

# They turn up in the spring

0:04:070:04:11

# And they fly to Africa

0:04:110:04:12

# It's what's called migrating

0:04:120:04:15

# They don't make bird sounds so to speak

0:04:170:04:20

-# Flappy

-Communicate by rattling their beaks

0:04:200:04:24

# A symbol of luck from the Ancient Greeks

0:04:240:04:26

# But maybe not if you're a chimney sweep

0:04:260:04:29

# Flappy Depending on how high they fly

0:04:290:04:32

# Locals can tell if it will rain or shine

0:04:320:04:35

# They live in pairs and protect their eggs

0:04:350:04:38

# Like me, they've got lovely long legs

0:04:380:04:41

# Flap along if you spot a stork up on the roof

0:04:410:04:45

# That's where they make their nests

0:04:470:04:49

# I swear that that it's the truth

0:04:490:04:52

# You've got to say that Cigoc is certainly picturesque

0:04:530:04:59

# If I were a stork myself

0:04:590:05:01

# It's where I'd build my nest. #

0:05:010:05:04

Shame I'm not.

0:05:040:05:05

Ed, that song's very catchy, but I can't join in.

0:05:140:05:17

-I'm absolutely shattered.

-The good news is we've reached the Coliseum.

0:05:170:05:22

Home of the Roman gladiators.

0:05:220:05:24

The bad news is we need an entire day to look round it.

0:05:240:05:27

No, we don't, Ed. You are a gladiator and your arena is knowledge.

0:05:270:05:30

-Is it?

-Yeah.

0:05:300:05:33

You've got 20 seconds to tell me all you know about the Coliseum.

0:05:330:05:38

The Coliseum took eight years to build

0:05:380:05:40

and could hold over 15,000 people.

0:05:400:05:42

Coolio.

0:05:420:05:44

It covers the same surface area as four-and-a-half football pitches.

0:05:440:05:47

Coolio.

0:05:470:05:48

In the 16th ,century the pope tried to turn it into a wool factory.

0:05:480:05:51

-Not coolio.

-Here's one. Here's one.

0:05:510:05:53

Sometimes they would flood the area with water

0:05:530:05:55

and recreate naval battles.

0:05:550:05:57

Whoa! You smashed it!

0:05:570:06:00

Thank you. Thank you. Grazie. Grazie.

0:06:000:06:03

-Mate, not that coolio.

-Sorry.

0:06:030:06:05

It's weird, isn't it, to imagine the gladiators in there,

0:06:050:06:08

fighting to the death in front of a bloodthirsty crowd?

0:06:080:06:11

-Bit of a dark note to end it on.

-Sorry.

0:06:110:06:14

Just me and Chris went to Denmark,

0:06:140:06:15

birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen.

0:06:150:06:17

I think some of his not-so-happy endings have rubbed off on me.

0:06:170:06:21

0:06:400:06:43

0:06:430:06:48

# Talking of great stories

# This statue is on show

-# Oh, it's the Little Mermaid!

-That's one of mine, you know

0:06:510:06:55

# To be immortal she must be his wife

0:07:010:07:03

# Drinks a special potion Loses her tongue... #

0:07:030:07:05

Is this a children's story? Sounds a bit wrong.

0:07:050:07:07

I think you'd better cut a long story short.

0:07:070:07:09

# She has to kill the prince In two minds, she's caught

0:07:090:07:11

-# She'll get another chance to be immortal...

-Fine.

0:07:110:07:13

# The only trouble is it's in 300 years' time... #

0:07:130:07:15

-Not quite a happy ending.

-# That's the way it goes.

0:07:150:07:17

# I'm like that. It's just the way I roll. #

0:07:260:07:30

# How about the story of the Little Match Girl?

0:07:300:07:33

# Poor little girl selling matches in the street

0:07:330:07:36

# It's winter, cold No shoes on her feet

0:07:360:07:38

# Between two houses shelters and hides

0:07:380:07:40

# Lights a match, imagines she's inside

0:07:400:07:42

# Look, it's Christmas Her granny's there too

0:07:420:07:44

-# Lights more matches

-Too good to be true

# When the match goes out Lights a bundle instead

0:07:460:07:48

# Turns out it's a vision and she's actually dead

0:07:480:07:50

# Hang on Hans, that's a bit gory

0:07:500:07:52

# Surprised that's a popular bedtime story

0:07:520:07:54

0:08:090:08:13

# Once there was an ugly little duck Tattered and torn, down on his luck

0:08:130:08:16

# No-one liked him He had to leave home

0:08:160:08:18

# And he spent all the winter cold and alone

0:08:180:08:20

# Standing by the river Bad thoughts in his head

0:08:200:08:22

# Don't tell me he winds up dead

0:08:220:08:24

# Wishes he could be a beautiful swan

0:08:530:08:57

From one tall storyteller to another.

0:09:000:09:03

This is Trajan's Column, built by the Roman emperor Trajan

0:09:030:09:06

about 2,000 years ago and it tells a story.

0:09:060:09:10

Why not write it on a book?

0:09:100:09:12

You're not going to get that on a bus.

0:09:120:09:14

The Romans didn't have buses, Iain. They would ride around on chariots.

0:09:140:09:17

As long as they've got pictures. I like stories with pictures in them.

0:09:170:09:20

Ah, it has got carvings on it that tell the story of Trajan's life.

0:09:200:09:24

Well, his two greatest military campaigns anyway.

0:09:240:09:26

-Imagine a column depicting my life. That would be awesome.

-Yeah.

0:09:260:09:31

-Actually, what would be on that, exactly?

-Erm...

0:09:320:09:36

Telly. Hair.

0:09:360:09:39

A biscuit. It wouldn't be...it would be about that big.

0:09:390:09:42

-Maybe we should just enjoy this one.

-Yeah.

0:09:420:09:45

I think the Romans are the best in the world at making columns.

0:09:450:09:50

Absolutely. Apart from the Greeks.

0:09:500:09:53

Victoria and I went to Sicily

0:09:530:09:55

and we saw some of the finest Greek ruins in the world.

0:09:550:09:58

-Apart from that, you're spot-on.

-Thanks, pal.

-You all right, big man?

-You noticed? I have been working out.

0:13:010:13:05

Not you, skinny. This guy. Good work on the singing, by the way.

0:13:050:13:09

Excellent, excellent. Give yourself a big hand.

0:13:090:13:12

-Really?

-Sorry, mate, I just like to leave my audience in pieces!

0:13:150:13:19

-Cos there's pieces... I'm done, I'm done, I'm done.

-Good.

0:13:190:13:23

Thanks to you we're on a bit of a tight schedule, remember?

0:13:230:13:26

Yeah, sorry about that. Tell me about this guy.

0:13:260:13:29

He's the Roman emperor Constantine the Great,

0:13:290:13:32

and all these pieces used to make up a giant statue

0:13:320:13:34

-called the Colossus of Constantine.

-Must have been huge.

0:13:340:13:38

-About 12m high, apparently.

-I don't work in metres.

0:13:380:13:41

I work in Petries. So you're just under 2m.

0:13:410:13:44

That's 12m...

0:13:440:13:47

-That's...over six Ed Petries tall?

-And that's not all.

0:13:470:13:51

Some think this used to be covered in gilded bronze.

0:13:510:13:54

Like something out of Ironman.

0:13:540:13:55

It's fascinating but we've not got time.

0:13:550:13:57

-Come with me. Come on.

-Iain!

0:13:570:14:00

If you think the Romans liked to do things big,

0:14:000:14:02

you won't believe the comic murals Johny and I saw in Belgium.

0:14:020:14:05

Iain! Do you even know where you're going?

0:14:050:14:08

# When painting a picture

0:14:130:14:15

# I would like to betcha

0:14:150:14:17

# You tend to use paper Not local architecture

0:14:170:14:20

# But here in Brussels in Belgium

0:14:200:14:23

# Painting on buildings is exactly what they've done

0:14:230:14:28

# Each mural represents a Belgian comic hero

0:14:280:14:31

# From Tintin and his dog

# To bow-tie wearing Nero

0:14:350:14:38

# Follow me now on a comic book trail

0:14:380:14:43

# See the murals on the wall Murals on the wall

0:14:430:14:46

# They put them up all across the city

0:14:460:14:49

# See the murals on the wall Murals on the wall

0:14:490:14:53

# At last count there were about 53

0:14:530:14:57

# They did it for the art

# They did it for the art

0:15:000:15:03

# In 1991 this mural of Broussaille

0:15:040:15:07

# Was first to appear

# An homage to Frank Pe

# Arm in arm This happy pair

0:15:110:15:14

# Strolled through Brussels as you stop and stare

0:15:140:15:18

# Who's this portly chap perched up in a tree?

0:15:180:15:21

# He doesn't look like a cartoon hero to me

0:16:300:16:32

Where do I start?

0:16:330:16:35

How many steps did you say this was again?

0:16:370:16:39

Er...138.

0:16:390:16:41

Right, well, I can't go any further.

0:16:410:16:44

Going to have to stand here and have some lunch.

0:16:440:16:46

Oh, no, no, no! You can't eat on the steps.

0:16:460:16:48

I just brought this heavy bag all this way.

0:16:480:16:50

Yeah. I should have mentioned that at that bottom.

0:16:500:16:53

In Rome, it's actually illegal to eat on lots of the monuments.

0:16:530:16:56

How is this a monument?!

0:16:560:16:57

-Have you not heard of the Spanish Steps?

-No, I've not.

0:16:570:17:00

But I have heard of the Belgian Shuffle.

0:17:000:17:02

It's not even a thing, kids, don't worry about it!

0:17:040:17:07

They're called the Spanish Steps cos the Spanish embassy is nearby.

0:17:070:17:10

This is actually the widest staircase in Europe.

0:17:100:17:13

Ha-ha, look!

0:17:130:17:15

It says here that some tourist got confused

0:17:150:17:17

and drove his car down here cos it was so wide!

0:17:170:17:19

See? You're not the only numpty, Ed!

0:17:190:17:21

I nearly drove down it. Maybe I need to get a new sat nav.

0:17:210:17:25

I'm off to find somewhere I CAN eat.

0:17:250:17:27

While I do that, how about you find a way of linking

0:17:270:17:29

from the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy,

0:17:290:17:31

to you and Michelle in Paris, France?

0:17:310:17:34

Good luck, mate.

0:17:340:17:35

Oh! Oh, look, it says here that there used to be a French church

0:17:390:17:43

at the top of the steps,

0:17:430:17:44

and the steps were originally paid for by the French!

0:17:440:17:48

Oh, man, I'm good at this.

0:17:480:17:50

Ah, Paris. The capital of France

0:17:520:17:54

and one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world.

0:17:540:17:57

So many amazing things here, but how do you decide what to do?

0:17:570:18:00

Well, hold out for a three-minute whistle-stop tour

0:18:000:18:03

# Too late - that's three minutes. #

0:20:520:20:54

Ahh.

0:20:550:20:57

Tell you what - Paris was amazing.

0:20:570:20:59

-Yeah, but I'm glad I wasn't born there.

-Why's that?

0:20:590:21:01

I don't speak French, for a start.

0:21:010:21:03

And besides, I'm beginning to think I was born to live in Rome.

0:21:030:21:07

It's just like me - splendido.

0:21:070:21:09

Fantastico.

0:21:090:21:11

Blimey, it's thick.

0:21:110:21:12

'Scuse me?

0:21:120:21:14

Oh, sorry - not you. I was talking about that.

0:21:140:21:17

Pantheon? It's one of the oldest buildings in Rome,

0:21:170:21:20

and the walls are up to six metres thick.

0:21:200:21:21

That's three times the length of you.

0:21:210:21:23

That'll be because of the roof, mate.

0:21:230:21:25

It's one of the largest unsupported concrete domes in the world.

0:21:250:21:28

Ah! Have you been reading about Italy as well?

0:21:280:21:31

Don't be daft. That tour guide just said it.

0:21:310:21:33

And if you want to go to the toilet, go now - they're about to shut.

0:21:330:21:36

Good to know.

0:21:360:21:37

Well, I have been reading,

0:21:370:21:39

and apparently that building has burnt down twice before.

0:21:390:21:42

That version was built 2,000 years ago by the emperor Hadrian.

0:21:420:21:45

Hadrian?! The guy that built the pyramids?

0:21:450:21:47

Hadrian's Wall?

0:21:470:21:49

Walls, pyramids - I was close enough.

0:21:490:21:51

Hang on! That's the same guy?

0:21:510:21:53

It's amazing, isn't it? The Roman Empire

0:21:530:21:55

used to stretch from here to the English-Scottish borders.

0:21:550:21:58

Scotland...don't, you'll make me homesick, mate.

0:21:580:22:01

Anyway, we've only got five more minutes.

0:22:010:22:03

One thing left to see. Let's go.

0:22:030:22:04

-Let's do this.

-What about the bill? We were going to go Dutch.

0:22:040:22:07

We've only got five minutesh. One thing left to shee.

0:22:070:22:09

I'm joking, I'm joking.

0:22:090:22:10

But seriously, we've already gone Dutch!

0:22:100:22:12

We went to Holland, remember? Come on!

0:22:120:22:14

No, I mean "go Dutch" as in splitting the bill!

0:22:140:22:17

Oh, never mind. He's right, though - we did go to Holland.

0:22:170:22:20

Saw some lovely windmills.

0:22:200:22:22

How much?!

0:23:140:23:16

# The thought we're below sea level's pretty scary, yeah?

# An oil and a paint mill and cocoa too

0:23:210:23:23

# That's quite a lot Is there nothing it can't do?

0:23:230:23:25

I can't believe we did it, Iain!

0:24:590:25:00

-Rome in 30 minutes.

-And I've still got one more thing to show you.

0:25:000:25:04

Come with me.

0:25:040:25:06

OK, Petrie, just pop your hand in there, please.

0:25:070:25:09

-Why? What is it?

-It's the Bocca della Verita,

0:25:090:25:13

or the Mouth of Truth.

0:25:130:25:14

It's also an old drain cover.

0:25:140:25:16

-Eww!

-Keep your hand in.

0:25:160:25:18

If you put your hand in there and you tell a lie,

0:25:190:25:22

it bites your hand clean off!

0:25:220:25:23

Oh. Great.

0:25:230:25:25

So how do we test it, then?

0:25:250:25:27

I'll ask you a few questions. Question number one...

0:25:270:25:29

Er, is your name Ed Pee-pee?

0:25:290:25:32

No.

0:25:340:25:35

And unsurprisingly, my hand hasn't been bitten off.

0:25:350:25:38

Let's ask another one.

0:25:380:25:40

Is Iain Stirling the most attractive presenter in all the lands?

0:25:400:25:44

I doubt it.

0:25:440:25:46

-Did that hurt?

-Nothing happened, mate.

0:25:460:25:48

-When it bit your hand clean off?

-Hand's still there.

0:25:480:25:50

Final question, one that only you know the answer to.

0:25:500:25:53

Ed Petrie. Do we have another series of All Over The Place?

0:25:530:25:59

OK, I'm going to tell the truth.

0:25:590:26:00

The answer to the question "Have we got another series?" is...

0:26:000:26:03

Is...

0:26:030:26:05

Yes!

0:26:060:26:08

Is Ed telling the truth?

0:26:080:26:10

Will there be another series?

0:26:100:26:13

And if not, will Ed have his hand bitten off

0:26:130:26:16

by a mythical Roman sewage monster?

0:26:160:26:18

Well, haven't had my hand bitten off.

0:26:180:26:21

Which means?

0:26:210:26:23

Yep, you're right!

0:26:230:26:24

Europe's so big we're going to come back and see

0:26:240:26:27

all the cool stuff we haven't seen yet!

0:26:270:26:29

-Cos you know us, Iain. We like to go...

-BOTH: All over the place!

0:26:290:26:33

That's right, boys.

0:26:330:26:35

We've seen some stunning European sights...

0:26:350:26:38

Europe! Europe! Europe!

0:26:380:26:39

..embraced each country's rich cultural history...

0:26:390:26:43

-Oh, no!

-..indulged in the finest of European cuisine...

0:26:430:26:46

That's pretty good, yeah!

0:26:460:26:48

..and as always, all your favourite CBBC chums

0:26:480:26:51

have come along for the ride.

0:26:510:26:53

All Over The Place!

0:26:530:26:55

It's been a blast!

0:26:550:26:57

That's a proper volcanic explosion we just saw there.

0:26:570:26:59

Even if it didn't always go quite to plan.

0:26:590:27:03

So till next time...

0:27:030:27:05

You all right, cocker?

0:27:050:27:06

A-ha-ha-ha!

0:27:060:27:07

..you've been watching All Over The Place Europe!

0:27:070:27:11

That's right.

0:27:110:27:12

LAUGHTER

0:27:140:27:15

It's been smashing. See you next time.

0:27:150:27:17

Ed Petrie and his CBBC mates sing their way around some of the most unusual, awesome, random and amazing places in Europe. They get into a bit of a flap when visiting a stork village in Croatia, find out why a visit to Hans Christian Anderson's Denmark can be a bit grim, have a toga party in Italy's Valley of the Temples, take a comic book tour around Brussels in Belgium, take a whistle-stop tour of Paris, and discover that a windmill is not just a breakdancing move in the Netherlands.

Ed is joined on this bonkers road trip by Michelle Ackerley, Victoria Cook, Chris Johnson, Johny Pitts, Iain Stirling and Naomi Wilkinson - there's stuff to do in Europe that is totally ace and it turns up all over the place!
