Ed and Holly visit weird sea forts,
Johny photos Nessie, Joe shakes it all about, Ed discovers
life as a roller coaster and we're strictly dancing the cha cha cha.
# All over the place
# All over the place
# North, south, east, west On a bizarre quest
# Me and my mates All over the place
# It's true what you've heard Everything is absurd
# Whatever we do It's strange but true
# All over the place
# All over the place
# Bet you didn't know your stuff was in the UK
# But it turns up all over the place. #
We've found ourselves in Whitstable in Kent,
home to this beautiful beach and one of the oldest yacht clubs in the UK.
But that's not why we're here.
We're here to have a look at something that
sticks out of the sea.
'These may look like something out of Dr Who
'but they are in fact the Red Sand Sea Forts.
'They were built during World War II to defend the Thames Estuary.
'I'd surrender if I saw them marching towards me!
'Ed and Holly, you have 27 seconds to find out as many facts as you can about the sea forts.
'Holly, you've got Phil.
'Ed, you've got Trevor.
'Three, two, one, go.'
Phil, let's not waste time in introductions!
-How tall are the towers?
-What's the point of them?
-They were put in in World War II as Britain's first line of defence.
-How far out to sea are they?
-Did they shoot down any planes?
-Yes, apparently about 22.
-How long did they take to build?
-About three to four months.
-How many people can live on them at once?
-Up to about 280.
-How long are people on there for?
Yes. We've done it. Eat that, Petrie!
'And the winner is...
-Yeah! In your face, Petrie.
-And in my ear.
-Kind of eerie.
-I can't believe people used to live out here.
It's like a ghost town in the middle of the channel!
Apparently there used to be bridges linking them together so you could walk between the forts.
It's like someone's put their camera on a tripod and walked off.
Just chucked it in the sea.
'The forts are now looked after by a charity,
'who've given us exclusive access.'
There isn't a carpet or any curtains.
So amazing. it feels like some sort of film set.
It feels like something out of Dr Who. I keep expecting something to jump out from behind a corner.
What I don't understand is how people could have spent up to
six weeks at a time living in here.
If you've got claustrophobia andyou're scared of living in a tiny space,
this is not the place to be.
So this must have been the bathroom.
Given that a lot of people lived on here they've only got three loos.
You can't be that popular if you just went to the loo and everyone was waiting.
Let's say hello to the neighbours.
-Hello! Are you on a fort?
-Yes, I am.
Yes, I am as well. How long you been here?
Four, five, six weeks.
Six weeks? Yeah, me too.
-Are you going mad?
Yeah. Me as well. Bye.
That was what it was like back in those days.
'Uncanny, Ed. It was almost as though we were back at World War II.
'Well, maybe you can transport us back to the 1960s, when the forts
'were used to transmit illegal radio stations.
'It's Petrie's Pick of the Pops.'
And that was Peace and Flowers by the Love Monkeys Love
right here on Radio Sea Fort.
In the next half hour we're going to be having the results
of our fantastic I-Spy quiz.
We asked you what can we see that begins with the letter S.
Here's Jenny with a quick reminder of the clue.
It's blue and there's a lot of it.
A bit of a puzzler there.
So, if you think you know the answer why not pop it in
a boat or a helicopter and we will announce the winner if we remember.
And now here's Jenny with the news.
Yep, it's choppy out.
Well, there's been a lot of records released this week.
Unfortunately none of them have arrived here so we're going to be
playing Peace and Flowers by the Love Monkeys Love, again.
But first, here's Jenny with the weather.
Yeah, you've guessed it, it's choppy out.
Johny, Johny! There's a news flash.
Sorry, guys, just have to interrupt you there. We've got an important news flash.
This just in.
The legal loophole which allows offshore pirate radio stations
to broadcast has now been closed.
British law only used to apply within
three miles of the coast but now the border has been extended to 12 miles.
This means this entire radio station is now illegal.
Wow, Jenny that's a pretty decent report where did you get that from?
That fella gave it to me.
Oh, this is Radio Sea Fort signing off, maybe for four or six years.
Wow, that was incredible.
I can't believe that place has been used as a radio station, a fort...
-And now it's been on a TV show.
-Hey, last one to the poop deck's a loser.
Holly, where are the keys?
'This is the British library.
'If you're wondering why we are playing spy music, it's because Ed's
'on a mission to found the basement where all the books are stored.
'You might think finding books in a library would be easy but not in this one because it's massive.
'Oh, and the way to the basement is a closely guarded secret.
'To get in Ed must find agent Roger.'
Are you... (COUGHS)..Roger?
Yes, I am Roger. You must be Ed.
-Pleased to meet you, welcome to the library.
-I understand you can show me the...
The basement, where all the expensive stuff in it.
-Yes, be delighted to.
'Well, that was difficult, wasn't it?
-Come on, Roger, where's the basement?
-Well, we can bring you down,
-but because it's so important you will have to wear this.
-A pin the tail on a donkey fan, are you?
-Oh, no, it's a blindfold.
-Oh, so I don't know where the basement is.
Come on, do your worst!
'Yes, this is more like it!
'There will be a zip wire to climb down and lasers setting off alarms
'and alternatively there'll be a lift with a button marked B for basement.'
-Is this necessary, Roger?
-I'm afraid it is, Ed.
We take security very seriously here.
You can follow me now.
If you stop around there. You'll be pleased to know you can now take off your blindfold.
Thank goodness, I was hoping you were going to say that.
Right, so where are we then?
We're in basement three of the British Library. So this is about six storeys.
-It's like a block of flats.
It is. And each ceiling's about twice the height of a normal ceiling.
-We're down where the London underground is.
Do buildings normally go down that far?
No, they don't. This is the deepest basement in London.
You must have a lot of books here.
We have over 13 and a half million books in total.
While I'm here I might as well order up a book.
'There are 626km of bookshelves down here and they'd stretch from London to Edinburgh,
'which would probably take you 80,000 years if you were travelling by trolley.
'On average, 5,000 books are viewed every day, which is a bit too many to stamp by hand.
'So each item is scanned and transported upstairs by conveyor belts
'in very high tech red plastic crates.'
These are the rarest books of all, very expensive, the invisible books.
Don't tell anyone!
Ed, this was our best idea yet.
Once we catch this Loch Ness monster
we'll be heroes, we'll be famous, we can demand a pay rise.
I don't know, Johny. It's going to be pretty tough.
Loch Ness is 36km long.
Wow, that's the equivalent of 21,176 bath tubs.
Is it? I haven't done the maths.
Basically, I think we need to get out there on the loch.
'The first recorded sighting of Nessie was in 565AD by St Columba, which is a miracle!'
Ah, it's hideous!
It's one of the ugliest things I've seen in my life! I'm going to be sick.
Ed, take your binoculars down. You're looking at me, you idiot.
-How long have you been searching for the Loch Ness monster?
-For over 25 years now.
What you're seeing up here is sonar. It's showing the depth of the loch.
-What are those little blue dots?
-They could be fish in the water.
'So maybe up until now Nessie's lost her voice.'
Do they have a place where they usually chill out, a favourite end of the loch?
Sometimes they come near the castle here.
-So, that would be a good place to start then?
-Excellent place to start.
Ed, I've got some haggis. Do you think this is going to trap the Loch Ness monster?
-Have you got a fishing rod?
Well, when it comes out, I'll just take a picture of it and that'll make us famous.
-I've got a better idea.
-Here, Nessie, Nessie.
SOUND OF BAGPIPES
You like a bit of that, do you?
Yeah, lovely but I can't...
Come on, Nessie! We're having a ceilidh!
I think Nessie'd prefer something funkier.
-You've scared her off now.
'So no wonder the monster's so tricky to spot!'
We were never going to see the Loch Ness monster.
I mean, George thinks he might have seen it once in 25 years.
I think the only place we'll see it is in the gift shop. Coming?
I'm just going to stand here for a bit. See you later, though.
I know the perfect place to get a picture of the Loch Ness monster.
See you back at the car.
Ed, you'll never believe it! I got a picture of me and Nessie.
-Have a look.
What, how did you get that?
Right place, right time, I guess.
Unbelievable. What's that over there?
Keep looking forward.
'Monstrous, Johny, monstrous.'
Right, Joe, we're here in Burnley.
-We are visiting Christine Edwards and she collects something
-that comes in pairs. Can you guess what it is?
-A pair of legs.
No! I'll give you a clue.
-Kind of, they go on a table.
-Do you want me to tell you?
No, don't tell me, Ed. Jedward.
No, not that. Forget it.
-Pair of knees, Pair of ears. Pair of knickers.
'I think most of it is in Christine's front room.
'Red orange and green.
'I'm not reeling off traffic light colours - along with black and white,
'these are the five different types of pepper.'
-Have you got a little collection of just salts and you're trying to find the peppers.
So, you're always trying to match them up.
Yes, and sometimes I do.
Have you got an example?
This is one of my favourites because they are so tiny.
Bought him on Burnley market for about 50p
and about five years later, I found this one on a market in Criccieth in North Wales.
Ah, it must be fate.
Do you mind if we explore and have a little look for ourselves.
You're welcome. I really like showing it off.
Keep an eye on him because he's always fiddling stuff.
I won't break nothing, I promise.
We've got some biscuits.
-Actually they are quite cool.
-Christine was telling the truth
when she said that literally everything can be
made into a salt and pepper shaker.
'What did the salt say to the pepper? Seasons greetings!'
Probably the place you least need salt and pepper shakers - the bathroom.
But there seem to be quite a lot of salt and pepper bathroom-themed objects here.
-I suppose so.
What is this? Who wants to have their sale out of a toilet?
I fancy a little bit of salt, a bit of pepper
and a bit of, you know... We'll leave that to the imagination. But it's not called for!
Thinking about it, the reason salt and pepper go well together - it's a taste thing, isn't it?
They taste good together, you can taste salt on your tongue and you can taste pepper up your nose.
Really, you think you're some sort of expert on salt and pepper now?
I think I know a lot about salt and pepper.
I honestly do. I think know more than you.
Well, maybe it's time for you to play...
It's against the clock and your time starts...now!
Pepper was used to preserve Egyptian mummies. True or false?
-Correct. Salt was actually used to preserve Egyptian mummies.
Well, done Joe, you're a budding Egyptologist.
The word salary comes from the word salt. Is it true or false?
-Correct. In Roman times, soldiers were given an allowance to buy salt.
Lucky them, they must have had the time of their lives.
Pepper makes you sneeze and when you sneeze air rushes through your nose at 85mph - true or false?
-No, its 100mph, Joe.
Pepper was so common in ancient Greece and Rome people used to wear it in their hair. True or false?
-No, it's false. Like in the Middle Ages, pepper was a valuable commodity.
People prized it.
Oh, your time is up, Joe, and I can tell you that you got two.
-Two. I got more than two.
Thank you so much for letting us into your lovely house.
You've got an incredible collection here of salt and pepper shakers.
But because we know you think it's still not quite big enough, we got you these.
There you go, there's Ed, and you know me because... it's got a big red head.
-Your very own All Over The Place salt and pepper shakers.
-Oh, thank you!
Well, here we are at Blackpool Pleasure Beach which is the biggest tourist attraction in the UK
and it's got loads of incredible roller coasters.
I'm so excited I don't know which one to go on.
There's the Steeplechase, the Avalanche or all of them?
Or none of them, or all of them?
Ed, you better make your mind up. Let's go!
# I've wanted to come here since I was nipper
# I'd heard about the Grand National and the Big Dipper
# But now that I'm here which ride should I pick?
# Surely every one will make you feel sick.
# Poor old Holly, such a delicate flower
# Whereas I love travelling upside-down at 80 miles an hour.
# You reckon you can take a huge roller coaster on
# Well, why not try this? It's called The Big One.
# It goes up, it goes down Around and around
# Way up in the sky, 200 feet high
# It goes left, it goes right It will give you a fright
# Man, that looks easy No way I'll be queasy
# Poor old Ed he'd better watch out Those modern roller coasters - No, they don't mess about
# While I'm safely down here on my own two feet
# I think I'll grab a tasty little something to eat
# I'm no way worried No, really I'm not
# There's no reason to be scared of a 200-foot drop
# Mind you, this height is getting rather severe
# Oh, look I can see my house from up here!
# Ice cream or chips Candy floss, crisps...
# Burger, hot dog Or maybe the lot
A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ah! A-a-a-a-a-ah! A-a-a-a-a-h!
How was that.
# It went up and went down Around and around
# 65-degree drop Thought it wouldn't stop
# It went high, it went low, Boy, did it go!
# Sounds like a winner
# Yeah, well here comes my dinner... #
Ha! I knew he didn't have the stomach for it. I think I've eaten too much.
I only wanted to go for a wee and now I'm being attacked by giant flies.
Lucky this guy's around - he's a major fly swatter.
I don't mean he does it a lot, I mean he's a major in the army.
Although he's probably very good at it.
Textbook tennis grip he's got there.
Or maybe he just doesn't like the people standing at his Ipswich bus stop.
Big fella, isn't he?
He's bigger than the tallest person ever.
And in case you're wondering who that was, his name was Robert Wadlow.
He was just over 2.7 metres tall.
When he was four years old, he was taller than Lady Gaga and his shoe size was 37.
As I was saying - big fella, isn't he? He's three and a half metres.
Imagine if you didn't stop growing and you ended up like him.
If everyone in the world didn't stop growing,
the world would be really cramped and we'd need really wide doors.
-Bigger sizes of jeans.
because if you grow up, your feet have to grow as well, don't they?
So, there'd be really tall skinny people and really small fat people.
It'd be the tall people against the fat people.
It'd be better for the tall people because they could have an adventure
and say hello to people in space. The only bad thing is that you'd hit
your head on Jupiter and other planets.
So, Johny, what work have you got lined up after this?
Just loads of projects. To be honest, I'm in between...
-You haven't got any work have you?
-No, I haven't.
I'll let you in a little secret - neither have I. Not a sausage.
What are we going to do? We've got to get our careers back on track, mate.
I know! We might not be able to get any more presenting work
but I bet you anything we could get on a reality show.
I'm not being thrown out of an aeroplane, being covered in bugs and made to eat rats.
I've got dignity. I'm not Joe Swash.
I'm not talking about the jungle, Ed. I'm talking about the dance floor.
BOTH: Let's go dancing.
'You would be forgiven for thinking it's a spray tan convention.'
'It's very popular due to its simplicity. Perfect for our two then.'
Just waiting for my dance instructor.
I just hope they're not intimidated by my celebrity status.
'This is Kate.'
-Hello, I'm Ed.
-Hi, nice to meet you.
Obviously you knew that already.
To be perfectly honest, I have no idea who he is.
Am I allowed to say that?
-Hello there, you must be...
-Megan. Nice to meet you.
-Obviously you know who I am.
To perfectly honest, I don't even know who it is but I'll do my best.
Before we start, I'm going to go through a few little techniques.
And then you're going to cha-cha-cha.
-Sorry! I just trod on your feet!
Oh! Head frying already!
A thoroughly undeserved round of applause there for me.
Well, I hope he's going to surprise us all.
I'm hoping that he's kind of pretending that he can't dance.
So, what way are you going to walk...?
So how's Johny doing?
We're going this way - cha-cha-cha.
You're getting it fine. The best thing to do...
'I think his chances in the competition are high.'
He's doing well for a beginner.
We've been practising our lifts and stuff.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Good.
The lifts are going really well. I was surprised about that.
-Well, you want to practise them because we're kind of tearing it up in here.
Keep practising. You need all the practice you need.
They sound really confident.
I HATE THE CHA-CHA!
I don't like this. I look stupid, I feel stupid... Everyone in there knows what they're doing.
Hello. Actually I thought I looked stupid!
'No, you both do.'
This is a look you can pull off, if you can dance. I can't dance!
Do I get extra points if I go out there and make it look like I'm enjoying myself?
-Yes, enjoy yourself.
So, I've got to slap on a big smile?
-Exactly like that.
-Cha cha cha.
I'm really scared.
Don't be, we'll go out there and show them what you've got.
What if I forget the moves and that?
I'll be there. You're not going to forget, you're going to be fine.
You've just got to keep eye contact and you'll be great.
Children's BBC presenters Ed Petrie...
Here we go!
..Johny Pitts have learnt the Cha-cha-cha for the first time this morning.
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
OK, so it's your Cha-cha-cha.
'Nice foot work.
'There's Worcester's answer to Len Goodwin and Craig Revel Horwood.
'They're all over the place.
'Just like the show - All Over The Place. I see what he's doing now!'
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
'Oh, the crowd are loving them.'
Now comes the crunch. In fourth place, number 200, John and Megan.
'Get in there John and Megan!'
..And last but by no means least, number 201 Ed and Kate.
Congratulations, Johny. Well done! Keep up the good work.
Thank you very much. It's been a pleasure.
To be honest the real pleasure's been dancing with my partner, Megan.
-This is hers, really.
Yes, we won. In your face, Petrie.
Kate, I'm very sorry. I will never darken your door again.
-I need to find a new dance partner.
'Keep dancing! You've been watching All Over The Place.
