'You want to see how I get on at the world's biggest food fight?

0:00:020:00:04

'Keep watching!'

0:00:040:00:05

I have never seen anything like this in my life.

0:00:050:00:07

Well, wipe that foodie mess off your goggles, Ed!

0:00:070:00:10

Cos you don't want to miss these tasty treats!

0:00:100:00:13

Michelle meets a mammoth French monster!

0:00:130:00:16

Incroyable!

0:00:160:00:18

Naomi's in hiding.

0:00:180:00:20

Iain plays ketchup.

0:00:200:00:23

0:00:230:00:25

Strange.

0:00:250:00:26

Victoria goes Roman about.

0:00:260:00:29

And Sam and Mark get tongue-tied.

0:00:290:00:30

THEY SHOUT

0:00:300:00:33

BELL RINGS

0:00:330:00:35

# All over the place

# All over the place

0:00:380:00:41

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

0:00:410:00:44

# Me and my mates All over the place!

0:00:440:00:46

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

0:00:460:00:49

# Whatever we do is strange but true!

0:00:490:00:52

# All over the place

0:00:520:00:54

# All over the place

0:00:540:00:57

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

0:00:570:00:59

-# And it turns up...

-# All over the place! #

0:00:590:01:02

In France, it's illegal to name a pig Napoleon!

0:01:070:01:11

Here we are at the urban jungle which is the French city of Nantes.

0:01:140:01:19

A place so unlikely to have any wildlife,

0:01:190:01:21

I'm beginning to doubt it even as I speak.

0:01:210:01:24

And you just have to look around this metropolis

0:01:240:01:26

to ask the question,

0:01:260:01:27

why are we here wearing these silly safari outfits?

0:01:270:01:30

And yet, we have been told

0:01:300:01:32

the species we are about to witness is simply incredible.

0:01:320:01:36

Incroyable!

0:01:360:01:37

Sorry, yes, incroyable!

0:01:370:01:40

What is it again?

0:01:400:01:41

Well, it says here on the script that

0:01:410:01:43

it's a giant mechanical elephant that you can ride on

0:01:430:01:46

and shoots water out of its trunk.

0:01:460:01:48

Quite frankly, that is just ridiculous.

0:01:480:01:51

A giant mechanical elephant?

0:01:510:01:53

You're having a giraffe.

0:01:530:01:54

ELEPHANT TOOTS HORN

0:01:540:01:57

Argh!

0:01:590:02:01

Incroyable!

0:02:010:02:02

Incroyable!

0:02:020:02:04

While you two dumbos get dried off, check out this guy!

0:02:040:02:08

He is incroyable!

0:02:080:02:10

This is the grand elephant,

0:02:100:02:11

a mechanical machine that you can ride on

0:02:110:02:13

and that sprays water out of his trunk!

0:02:130:02:16

This area of Nantes used to be famous for shipbuilding,

0:02:160:02:20

but now they build amazing mechanical creatures

0:02:200:02:22

in this giant old warehouse.

0:02:220:02:24

It's known as Les Machines De L'ile

0:02:240:02:26

or The Machines Of The Isle Of Nantes.

0:02:260:02:28

The elephant stands over 12 metres high.

0:02:300:02:32

That's the same as eight All Over The Place cars

0:02:320:02:35

stacked on top of each other!

0:02:350:02:37

Ed and Michelle!

0:02:370:02:39

You have 35 seconds to find out as much as you can

0:02:390:02:42

about Les Machines De L'ile.

0:02:420:02:45

Ed, you have Thomas.

0:02:450:02:47

He knows all about the elephant.

0:02:470:02:49

Michelle, you have Camille,

0:02:490:02:51

who knows all about the other machines in the park.

0:02:510:02:54

Trois, deux, un, allez!

0:02:540:02:57

Er... Parlez-vous...anglais?!

0:02:590:03:01

-Oui, yes.

-Tres bien.

0:03:010:03:03

-Have you got a favourite animal?

-Yes, this one. The caterpillar.

0:03:030:03:06

-Do you need qualifications to drive it?

-Yes.

0:03:060:03:08

-Why was it your favourite?

-Erm... Because it's like dancing.

0:03:080:03:12

Yeah, it's like...

0:03:120:03:14

Could you get in trouble for parking it in the wrong place?

0:03:140:03:17

Get a big fine?

0:03:170:03:18

-You won't get a fine, but your car will be crushed.

-Oh.

0:03:180:03:20

Who was the inspiration for this place?

0:03:200:03:22

It's a very famous writer whose name is Jules Verne.

0:03:220:03:27

-Has it ever broken down?

-Yes, a lot.

0:03:270:03:29

-Has it... Oh!

-KLAXON SOUNDS

0:03:290:03:32

-Oh, time's up!

-OK!

-High-five it.

-High-five! Whoo!

0:03:320:03:35

And the winner is...

0:03:350:03:38

Ed!

0:03:380:03:39

Yes!

0:03:390:03:40

As a special treat,

0:03:400:03:42

-I have arranged a unique urban safari on the famous elephant.

-Whoa!

0:03:420:03:46

-Oh, it'll be no fun on my own. You can come too.

-Yeah!

0:03:460:03:48

MUSIC: Elephant by Tame Impala

0:03:480:03:52

Bonjour!

0:03:520:03:53

The grand elephant can carry up to 50 passengers at one time

0:04:000:04:03

and it travels at an amazing top speed of...

0:04:030:04:05

3km per hour?! That's not very fast.

0:04:050:04:08

But what it lacks in speed, it makes up for in size and sound.

0:04:080:04:11

Just listen to that horn!

0:04:110:04:13

ELEPHANT TOOTS HORN

0:04:130:04:15

The horn is operated inside the body of the elephant

0:04:150:04:17

using a specially-designed device

0:04:170:04:19

that works a bit like holding a balloon

0:04:190:04:21

and letting the air out of the end.

0:04:210:04:24

I wonder what inspirational French author Jules Verne...

0:04:240:04:27

-IMITATING FRENCH ACCENT:

-..would 'ave made of these magnifique creatures.

0:04:270:04:31

Welcome to La Galerie des Machines,

0:04:310:04:34

inspired by the designs of Leonardo da Vinci.

0:04:340:04:37

-IMITATING FRENCH ACCENT:

-And me! 19th-century novelist,

0:04:370:04:40

playwright and poet, Jules Verne,

0:04:400:04:42

createur of marvellous, magical worlds.

0:04:420:04:45

Indeed, Mr Verne.

0:04:450:04:46

Let me introduce you to the giant ant.

0:04:460:04:49

It invites four passengers on board and they help to...

0:04:500:04:53

Sorry, please, don't touch that.

0:04:530:04:55

Don't touch it.

0:04:550:04:57

They help to manoeuvre the legs, the head and the mouth.

0:04:570:04:59

It reminds me of my adventure story,

0:04:590:05:02

Journey To The Centre Of The Earthworm.

0:05:020:05:06

Don't you mean A Journey To The Centre Of The Earth?

0:05:060:05:09

I think I know my own novels, Madame.

0:05:090:05:12

HE SNORTS IN DISGUST

0:05:120:05:14

And this is the marvellous heron bird.

0:05:140:05:17

It has the ability to fly across the main hall,

0:05:170:05:20

above the magnificent heron tree,

0:05:200:05:22

where real-life plants and mechanical ones live together side by side.

0:05:220:05:27

Monsieur Verne! Get out of there, please!

0:05:270:05:29

Non!

0:05:290:05:30

I like this flying device.

0:05:300:05:31

It reminds me of a tale of intrepid travel

0:05:310:05:34

which I wrote in the year 1873

0:05:340:05:37

entitled Around The Car Park In Eight And A Half Minutes.

0:05:370:05:41

I think you mean Around The World In 80 Days.

0:05:410:05:44

I don't recall a car park, Mr Verne.

0:05:440:05:46

How dare you, tour guide lady!

0:05:460:05:48

Questioning me, the famous Jules Verne!

0:05:480:05:51

Now, this is the truly extraordinary Carrousel Des Mondes Marins.

0:05:510:05:56

It is split over three different levels

0:05:560:05:59

and stands at a whopping 25 metres high.

0:05:590:06:02

Regarde! It is an inspiration to all.

0:06:020:06:05

And reminds me of a tale of a terrifying sea bird

0:06:050:06:09

that I penned in the year 1870

0:06:090:06:11

entitled 20 Centimetres Under The Sea.

0:06:110:06:15

Now, I'm sure you mean 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

0:06:150:06:19

The voyage of Captain Nemo to the bottom of the ocean.

0:06:190:06:22

20 centimetres really isn't that deep or terrifying, Mr Verne.

0:06:220:06:26

Um, actually, I think you might be right.

0:06:260:06:28

You're not the real Jules Verne, are you?

0:06:280:06:31

Non.

0:06:310:06:33

My name is...Dave.

0:06:330:06:34

I'm from Lewisham.

0:06:350:06:36

The longest tie in the world comes from Croatia.

0:06:410:06:43

It was over 800 metres long,

0:06:430:06:45

and was tied around a famous monument!

0:06:450:06:48

MUSIC: Fix Up, Look Sharp by Dizzee Rascal

0:06:530:06:56

Hey, Ed!

0:06:560:06:57

Oh, loving the cravat.

0:06:570:07:00

That is what this is, isn't it?

0:07:000:07:01

Yes, it is, because unlike some people,

0:07:010:07:03

I respect the customs of the country that I'm visiting,

0:07:030:07:06

which is why I'm here for the traditional changing of the cravat.

0:07:060:07:09

Changing of the cravat?

0:07:090:07:11

Yes, haven't changed this one for a fortnight,

0:07:110:07:13

-and trust me, it needs changing...

-That's gross.

-..for this one.

0:07:130:07:17

Ed, I think there's been some big mix-up here.

0:07:170:07:20

We're here for the changing of the guard of the Cravat Regiment.

0:07:200:07:23

It's a tradition here. Look.

0:07:230:07:25

You see? Nothing to do with

0:07:260:07:27

your horrible, tasteless choice of cravats.

0:07:270:07:30

Um, I'll have you know that these are very stylish.

0:07:300:07:33

You like my cravats, don't you?

0:07:330:07:34

He likes them.

0:07:360:07:37

Likes them? He loves them!

0:07:390:07:41

And so do the rest of the Croatian Cravat Regiment!

0:07:410:07:44

Someone from Croatia is called a Croat

0:07:440:07:46

and years ago, people saw Croatian soldiers wearing natty scarves

0:07:460:07:50

and called them after the folk themselves.

0:07:500:07:52

But, they mispronounced Croat as Cravat!

0:07:520:07:56

But that's not the end of the story, Ed.

0:07:560:07:58

Cos, over the years, the cravat has developed into the tie,

0:07:580:08:00

which is now worn around the world,

0:08:000:08:02

so Croatia is the home of the tie too!

0:08:020:08:04

Right, oh, which is why you've brought me to this tie shop.

0:08:040:08:06

Exactly!

0:08:060:08:07

(She's so organised.)

0:08:070:08:09

MUSIC: Sharp Dressed Man by ZZ Top

0:08:090:08:13

Does everyone in Croatia wear a tie all the time, everywhere they go?

0:08:130:08:16

It's not like we're born with ties

0:08:160:08:18

or just, you know, put on a tie and pop out and have a coffee.

0:08:180:08:20

But, you know, most people in Croatia,

0:08:200:08:22

most of the time do wear ties, you know,

0:08:220:08:24

for work and everyday stuff.

0:08:240:08:26

So, what's the most expensive tie that you have in this shop?

0:08:260:08:30

The most expensive tie, currently, that we have in the shop

0:08:300:08:32

is the line right behind you.

0:08:320:08:34

See these sparkly things?

0:08:340:08:36

This is actually

0:08:360:08:38

-24-carat gold threads.

-NAOMI GASPS

0:08:380:08:41

This tie is £328.30,

0:08:410:08:44

but the most expensive tie in the world, covered in diamonds,

0:08:440:08:48

cost an eye-watering £136,000!

0:08:480:08:51

I kid you not!

0:08:510:08:53

How many different knots are there?

0:08:530:08:55

There are like 85 knots that are like the most popular

0:08:550:08:59

and like the most used.

0:08:590:09:01

And there are five, six knots

0:09:010:09:03

-that you can actually see like everyday in the street.

-Wow.

0:09:030:09:06

I better start practising.

0:09:060:09:07

MUSIC: Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison

0:09:070:09:11

Urgh, the tie's meant to be under the collar.

0:09:110:09:14

Where's the knot?!

0:09:180:09:19

Oh! You're so KNOT taking this seriously, Ed!

0:09:210:09:25

Finally! Oh, that's more like it. That's...

0:09:270:09:30

-Hang on.

-Yeah, I know, Naomi.

0:09:310:09:33

I don't think he's ever going to be a tie-tying champion.

0:09:330:09:36

Welcome to Tie Mania!

0:09:370:09:41

The ultimate knot-tying event!

0:09:410:09:43

No other aggressive, wrestling-themed,

0:09:430:09:45

high-flying competition comes close...

0:09:450:09:48

Because there aren't any!

0:09:480:09:51

Tonight, we have, possibly, the greatest knot-off ever seen.

0:09:510:09:55

In the red corner,

0:09:550:09:57

the undefeated tie-tying master of disaster himself,

0:09:570:10:01

Tie-Phoon!

0:10:010:10:04

HE GROWLS

0:10:080:10:10

And in the blue corner, the challenger.

0:10:120:10:15

The tassel-tying terror, Triple Knot!

0:10:150:10:19

SPINE CRUNCHES

0:10:230:10:25

-BELL RINGS

-And they're off!

0:10:250:10:27

Tie-Phoon goes for the throat.

0:10:270:10:29

His own throat, mind, with a simple Half Windsor!

0:10:290:10:33

It's simple, but effective.

0:10:340:10:37

How will Triple Knot counter such a solid start?

0:10:370:10:40

-Argh!

-It's a Novotny knot!

0:10:420:10:45

So elegant, so complex.

0:10:450:10:46

Tie-Phoon is blown away!

0:10:460:10:49

What will be his answer?

0:10:490:10:50

Argh! Ha, ha!

0:10:530:10:55

He's made a right monkey's fist of it, literally!

0:10:550:10:58

That's the name of the knot!

0:10:580:11:00

Is impressive, but it's only for decoration!

0:11:000:11:02

It's not the knot he needs!

0:11:020:11:04

What will be Triple Knot's response?

0:11:050:11:07

Whoa!

0:11:070:11:09

Noooo!

0:11:090:11:13

Mind your laces. We don't want you tripping up, do we?

0:11:140:11:16

Aw, thanks for that, mate.

0:11:160:11:17

Ooh! Reef knot. Classic.

0:11:170:11:19

Well, folks! It looks like this match...

0:11:200:11:23

is a tie!

0:11:230:11:24

BOTH: Whoa!

0:11:270:11:28

It's thought the cuckoo clock was invented in Germany

0:14:460:14:49

in the 18th century.

0:14:490:14:51

Cuckoo, cuckoo!

0:14:510:14:53

-DISTORTED:

-Weird.

0:14:550:14:57

Unreal.

0:14:570:14:59

Far out.

0:14:590:15:01

Strange.

0:15:010:15:03

Ordinary objects...

0:15:040:15:06

Made into extraordinary art...

0:15:060:15:09

-BOTH:

-At Berlin's Museum of the Surreal.

0:15:090:15:14

This is The Museum of the Surreal in Berlin -

0:15:270:15:31

jam-packed with ordinary objects placed in a certain way

0:15:310:15:35

to make them look surreal.

0:15:350:15:37

Surreal means unreal or bizarre looking.

0:15:370:15:40

Let's hope we're not disturbed by what we are about to see!

0:15:400:15:43

As if Ed and Chris aren't disturbing enough already.

0:15:430:15:46

Maybe there's no-one else here.

0:15:460:15:49

-I'm here.

-Ah, you must be Vlad.

-Yes, it's me.

0:15:490:15:52

It's a bit scary in here.

0:15:520:15:54

No, it looks scary, but there is only positive things.

0:15:540:15:57

I want to show that real life can be more interesting

0:15:570:16:00

than fantasy movies.

0:16:000:16:02

-Can we have a look around?

-Of course, of course, no problem.

0:16:020:16:05

-You are welcome. I'm a very friendly director.

-I can see that.

0:16:050:16:09

Each of these objects had a previous life as an everyday item,

0:16:100:16:14

and you wouldn't have looked twice at them.

0:16:140:16:16

But now they've been placed together as exhibits in this unique

0:16:160:16:19

museum, some of them look very strange indeed!

0:16:190:16:23

At first, I thought this was a prosthetic limb,

0:16:230:16:25

but look at the height, perfect for a high-five?

0:16:250:16:28

I think that this is in case you want to celebrate,

0:16:280:16:30

but you're all on your own.

0:16:300:16:32

-You just...get a quick high-five.

-Oh, right.

0:16:320:16:34

You'll get a lot of use out of it, then.

0:16:340:16:36

Oh, don't listen to Ed.

0:16:360:16:38

You were right, first time, Chris.

0:16:380:16:40

This IS a replacement hand!

0:16:400:16:41

Look at this. It's like a personal submarine.

0:16:410:16:44

Funnily enough, this is actually made out of submarine parts.

0:16:440:16:47

It's an iron lung.

0:16:470:16:49

So that people whose lungs were damaged could breathe artificially.

0:16:490:16:53

And how long would someone be in one of these things?

0:16:530:16:55

Well, there was a woman who went into one of these

0:16:550:16:57

when she was 20 years old and she was 80 when she died.

0:16:570:17:00

This is Vlad's favourite object.

0:17:010:17:03

Oh, I love this.

0:17:050:17:07

I kind of want to take it home.

0:17:070:17:08

It looks like the sort of thing you could

0:17:080:17:10

win as a prize on a surreal-art-based game show.

0:17:100:17:13

'Hello, welcome...'

0:17:130:17:14

and guten Tag to Real Or Surreal,

0:17:140:17:18

everyone's favourite surreal-art-based game show.

0:17:180:17:22

Our contestant has to find objects in the museum and tell me what

0:17:220:17:26

their function was before they were turned into pieces of surreal art.

0:17:260:17:31

So let's meet our first contestant, Christine!

0:17:310:17:34

Excuse me, you're being very loud. We can hear you two rooms over.

0:17:340:17:37

Do you like the museum?

0:17:370:17:39

Yeah, I love it. I think the objects in it are great.

0:17:390:17:41

Likes the sound of his own voice, doesn't he?

0:17:410:17:44

Can you find me a brown spherical object in a green metal stand?

0:17:450:17:50

-I think I can, yeah.

-Go on, then.

0:17:500:17:53

-I'll give you a clue, it's over there.

-Oh, right.

0:17:530:17:56

And while he's finding that...

0:17:560:17:58

Did you know that surreal actually means super-real or beyond reality?

0:17:580:18:03

Found it!

0:18:030:18:05

So what do you think it is?

0:18:050:18:06

Maybe it's an unpainted metal globe.

0:18:060:18:10

It is in fact a 1930s washing machine.

0:18:100:18:13

Can you find a metal box with a glass top on it?

0:18:160:18:21

Yeah, I think I could probably find that.

0:18:210:18:23

Arr!

0:18:230:18:24

Did you know that surreal things often represent unconscious

0:18:240:18:28

thoughts or dreams?

0:18:280:18:29

-Oh, I'm having a nightmare.

-I've got it!

0:18:290:18:32

So, what do you think it is?

0:18:330:18:35

At first, I thought it was maybe a spaceship for a cat,

0:18:350:18:38

but then I realised it actually kind of looks like a street lamp,

0:18:380:18:41

so I'm going to say it's a German street lamp.

0:18:410:18:43

Unfortunately, the answer I was looking for was Berlin street lamp.

0:18:430:18:47

-So technically, it's correct.

-No, it's on the card, no.

0:18:470:18:51

What a shame.

0:18:510:18:52

You must find a metal pole with five metal rings wrapped around it.

0:18:550:18:59

I'll give you a clue - it looks a bit surreal.

0:18:590:19:03

-Not much of a clue.

-Off you go.

0:19:030:19:05

-Um...

-You took your time.

0:19:050:19:08

Right, what is this?

0:19:080:19:10

Uh...I've not even seen it yet.

0:19:100:19:12

It's a utensil for washing clothes.

0:19:120:19:15

You put it in the water and you go like this.

0:19:150:19:17

Very simple, just like you.

0:19:170:19:19

Well, I'm afraid you've lost, so I have to award you the booby prize.

0:19:190:19:24

You have to put this on top of your head and stay here forever.

0:19:240:19:28

Goodbye! Stay there.

0:19:280:19:29

The famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso

0:19:350:19:38

has actually got 23 names - Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Paula...

0:19:380:19:42

Iain, why do you keep carrying around that stupid tomato?

0:19:490:19:52

Don't listen to him, Tommy.

0:19:520:19:53

He doesn't understand our unique relationship.

0:19:530:19:55

You can't talk to fruit, it's weird.

0:19:550:19:57

You used to talk to plants!

0:19:570:19:59

-Nobody is looking for a cactus boyfriend.

-I am!

0:19:590:20:03

That's different, very different.

0:20:030:20:05

And this breaks all sorts of rules about plant life crossing

0:20:050:20:08

international borders.

0:20:080:20:10

Look, Ed, me and Tommy have been through a lot.

0:20:100:20:12

# A chance to talk A chance to grow... #

0:20:120:20:16

And this tomato appreciation event is going to be

0:20:190:20:22

the pinnacle of our relationship.

0:20:220:20:24

Yes, it is.

0:20:240:20:25

Actually, I suppose it is a good idea you brought him along today.

0:20:250:20:29

-Tommy, no!

-I'm sorry, Iain, those are the rules of the event.

0:20:300:20:34

You can't throw a tomato unless it has been squashed first.

0:20:340:20:38

You'll pay for this.

0:20:400:20:41

You'll pay!

0:20:410:20:44

Now you're getting it!

0:20:440:20:45

Don't worry about Tommy, he's come to the right place

0:20:450:20:48

because 120 tonnes of tomatoes get squished

0:20:480:20:51

and then thrown here at La Tomatina -

0:20:510:20:54

the world's biggest food fight!

0:20:540:20:56

Every year, 20,000 people descend on Bunol's cobbled streets to

0:20:560:21:00

get covered from head to toma-toe in tomatoes!

0:21:000:21:04

Did you know that tomatoes are in fact a fruit, not a vegetable?

0:21:040:21:08

They contain ascorbic acid, which is

0:21:080:21:10

very good for the skin. But the locals aren't

0:21:100:21:13

bothered about that - they just want to protect their houses

0:21:130:21:15

from the onslaught of squashed tomatoes. Ready for La Tomatina!

0:21:150:21:20

So why do you have a tomato-throwing festival?

0:21:200:21:22

Because it was a little bit crazy.

0:21:220:21:24

One day in the middle of a parade,

0:21:240:21:26

one of them was angry with another one

0:21:260:21:28

and tried to throw the first tomato.

0:21:280:21:30

Oh, so basically it was a normal festival,

0:21:300:21:32

-but there was a food fight and it got a bit out of control.

-Yes.

0:21:320:21:35

So what sort of tomatoes are they?

0:21:350:21:37

They are special tomatoes. They are grown especially for La Tomatina.

0:21:370:21:40

So they're not for eating?

0:21:400:21:41

-No.

-What's different about them, then?

0:21:410:21:44

Their size is different. They're larger. And they are soft.

0:21:440:21:47

-So if you threw one at Ed's big nose, it'd be OK.

-Yeah.

0:21:470:21:52

I think my nose will look like a tomato by the end of the day,

0:21:520:21:54

by the sounds of it.

0:21:540:21:56

Over 60 different nationalities compete to be crowned...

0:21:560:21:59

Well, there is no winner, really, they all just get

0:21:590:22:01

covered in squashed tomatoes!

0:22:010:22:03

I think you might need some stylish eye protection, boys!

0:22:030:22:06

This is a bit more extreme than I realised, I think.

0:22:060:22:09

We wear the glasses for the tomato juice.

0:22:090:22:12

-Because it is dangerous for the eyes.

-Right.

0:22:120:22:16

Well, we'll need to get you some ridiculous goggles then, Ed.

0:22:160:22:19

So, what's going to happen to us?

0:22:190:22:21

-You're going to receive a lot of tomatoes.

-Yeah.

0:22:210:22:25

-There's going to be tomato...

-WOMAN:

-Tomato!

0:22:250:22:27

Thank you. That woman just clarified your point.

0:22:270:22:30

What's it like when the tomatoes hit you? What does it feel like?

0:22:300:22:33

-Well, you're going to be on the top of one truck.

-Yes.

0:22:330:22:36

-So you're going to be a target...

-Brilliant.

0:22:360:22:39

..for 22,000 people.

0:22:390:22:42

That's right, Ed and Iain are going to be put to work

0:22:420:22:45

dishing out the tomatoes by hand to these food fighters below.

0:22:450:22:49

Five dumper trucks filled with

0:22:490:22:50

tomatoes wind their way down the 400-metre street with up

0:22:500:22:54

to 40 people in each one giving out the tomatoes to be thrown.

0:22:540:22:58

Ed and Iain will have to stay as clean as possible to win

0:22:580:23:01

the All Over The Place trophy.

0:23:010:23:03

I think it's time for a costume-change montage!

0:23:030:23:06

I need a bit of privacy.

0:23:060:23:08

Two television presenters.

0:23:080:23:10

Two pristine white boiler suits.

0:23:100:23:13

20,000 angry people.

0:23:130:23:15

And over 120 tonnes of tomatoes.

0:23:150:23:18

This. Could. Get. Messy!

0:23:180:23:22

Oh, I've got a stain on my sleeve!

0:23:220:23:25

Messier than that, Ed.

0:23:250:23:27

May the cleanest man win.

0:23:270:23:29

Well, I'm sure being dressed like this won't attract

0:23:290:23:32

the interest of a tomato-hurling crowd.

0:23:320:23:35

Ignore me, Spanish person!

0:23:350:23:36

I am merely a television presenter from a TV programme.

0:23:360:23:40

Oh, my! Ow!

0:23:400:23:42

Ed and Iain will have to stay clean for just one hour, but

0:23:420:23:46

they will be sitting right here, on top of around 30,000 tomatoes!

0:23:460:23:50

Ooooh!

0:23:530:23:54

I've never trodden on this much food before!

0:23:540:23:57

They are now harnessed in and ready for the food fiesta to begin.

0:24:000:24:04

If I had to describe the atmosphere now, I'd say - contained chaos?

0:24:040:24:08

This is probably under the surface.

0:24:080:24:10

Our plans to stay clean so far have been unsuccessful.

0:24:100:24:14

And everyone is telling us we shouldn't be down in the front

0:24:140:24:16

because we are dressed all in white and we are now targets.

0:24:160:24:19

The word target has been used far too much today for my liking.

0:24:190:24:22

Oh, right, that's my bum imprint!

0:24:220:24:24

Wuah, lovely!

0:24:240:24:26

The tension is mounting. The crowd awaits.

0:24:280:24:30

Ed and Iain are on the move!

0:24:340:24:37

There is no turning back now!

0:24:370:24:38

Keep me clean, guys!

0:24:380:24:40

Tres, dos, uno, tomato!

0:24:400:24:44

Aaaah!

0:24:460:24:47

It's the end of the world! With fruit!

0:24:560:24:59

Look down there!

0:25:040:25:05

I have never seen anything like this in my life.

0:25:080:25:11

There just seems to be an endless supply of tomatoes.

0:25:140:25:17

It's tomato mayhem!

0:25:300:25:32

And at the halfway stage, it looks like Iain is a shade less red

0:25:320:25:35

than Ed. But there is still 30 minutes left to dodge the tomatoes.

0:25:350:25:39

MUSIC SOUNDS

0:25:390:25:42

HE SCREAMS

0:25:420:25:46

I've never been more tomatoey in my entire life!

0:25:460:25:49

I know it looks bonkers, but all that's hurt is

0:25:520:25:54

people's pride when they get covered in 120 tonnes of the red stuff!

0:25:540:25:58

Remember, this is the world biggest ORGANISED food fight.

0:25:580:26:02

Don't try this at home with your own tomatoes -

0:26:020:26:04

they just want to be eaten.

0:26:040:26:05

Just in case you're wondering how our cameraman is doing...

0:26:160:26:19

Keep up the good work!

0:26:190:26:21

No cameramen were harmed during the making of this film...just tomatoes.

0:26:210:26:25

Craziest thing I think I've ever done.

0:26:280:26:30

Ed!

0:26:330:26:34

That seems perfectly normal now.

0:26:340:26:37

I think Ed and Iain have given up on staying clean. This one will

0:26:370:26:40

all come down to the judges' final decision.

0:26:400:26:42

-FIREWORKS EXPLODE

-Whooooa!

0:26:420:26:45

-That's the end.

-That's the end. That firework is the end.

0:26:450:26:48

The crowd salute our brave warriors - battered

0:26:490:26:52

and bruised just like the tomatoes they've thrown.

0:26:520:26:56

I think that was the most intense thing I've ever experienced.

0:26:560:26:58

Definitely the most intense thing ever involving fruit.

0:26:580:27:01

You've got to remember, we were sat on top of this.

0:27:010:27:04

It was full of tomatoes.

0:27:040:27:05

-Look at it now.

-Completely empty. Five trucks' worth!

0:27:050:27:09

But the question is,

0:27:090:27:11

who will be crowned cleanest Tomatina tomato thrower?

0:27:110:27:15

Hey.

0:27:150:27:17

Oh, he's a big hugger.

0:27:180:27:20

Good job, but only one can be a winner. And today, the winner is...

0:27:200:27:23

Iain.

0:27:230:27:25

Yes!

0:27:250:27:27

GROWLING: That's for you, Tommy!

0:27:270:27:29

-That was a draw, surely.

-No, I was moderately less messy.

0:27:290:27:34

We both didn't do particularly well.

0:27:340:27:37

But thanks!

0:27:370:27:38

You've been watching All Over The Place: Europe!

0:27:380:27:42

Ed Petrie and his CBBC mates go on an adventure to find the most unusual and amazing places in Europe. They come face to face, or should that be trunk to trunk, with a 12-metre-high mechanical elephant in France, find out why Croatian guards like to wear cravats on parade, have a toga party in Italy's Valley of the Temples, discover an iron lung in Germany and take part in the world's biggest food fight in Spain. Ed is joined on this bonkers road trip by Michelle Ackerley, Victoria Cook, Chris Johnson, Sam & Mark, Iain Stirling and Naomi Wilkinson - there's stuff to do in Europe that is totally ace and it turns up All Over the Place!
