# All over the place All over the place
# North, South, East, West On them is our quest
# Me and my mates all over the place
# It's true what you've heard, everything is absurd
# Whatever we do, we strain for truth
# All over the place All over the place
# Bet you didn't know this stuff was in the UK
# But it turns up all over the place. #
This is the life.
I mean Ed might be the most annoying man in the world but he booked me
-into this luxury spa for the weekend, so really nice.
-Who is that? What?
-It's a dog resort.
-Ed. I'm very offended. I'm not a dog!
-No, I didn't book you in.
I just thought you might be interested in having a look around.
It's where dogs come on holiday.
Yeah, you heard right, dogs come here on holiday.
Anyway, you're on the massage table, get off. Do you want a massage?
She's the luckiest dog in the whole of Worcestershire, I think.
Look at the smile on her face.
You need be very careful if you're a massaging a dog.
You don't grab any old dog.
This is Matt and Rose's breakfast.
It's the finest scrambled eggs.
Sir, madam, breakfast is served.
Yum, yum, yum, room service.
You're going to love this.
I know, it's breakfast.
Check it out.
Would sir like a newspaper?
No? Well, I'll leave you to it then.
This is one luxurious hotel,
I am seriously considering hiding in there and staying the night.
-This is why I'm more of a cat person.
You can't walk a dog like that.
That's not exercise.
She's on holiday. She doesn't care.
This place is so nice they've even got an outdoor pool.
-We should have a dip while we're here.
It's all right, they've got one indoors as well.
Doggy paddle is the only stroke allowed here!
Oh, that was another howler!
Oh, there's dogs in here as well.
I don't think there'll be anywhere without dogs here.
Let's get in the pool.
Whoa! Are you coming in, Rose?
I'm just a bit worried I might hit a warm patch,
-and not know who it is...
-It wasn't me, it wasn't me.
No weeing in the pool. OK?
She's not taking part in this whatsoever.
She's just on a cruise, basically.
Look, even the plants are dog themed.
Ha. And there are two new residents checking in.
Oh, how nice is this?
Are we allowed up on the bed?
There's no-one to tell us to get down.
Look, they've even given us doggy treats for the pillow.
Oh, for two weeks we're going to be living in the lap of luxury.
THEY HOWL AND BARK
Right, I'm going to go and sniff a few bottoms
and then I'm going to the pool and having a paddle.
Have you learnt to do stroke yet?
What can I say, I'm a doggy! It's the only stroke I know.
And this one.
That's good, oh yes.
-That's the spot.
-OK, I'll see you in a bit.
-Don't forget your towel.
It's all right, I'll just shake dry.
Ed, what are you doing? We've got to go. Everyone's waiting.
-Go without me, I've checked in.
You get scrambled egg breakfasts, you get walks,
massages, swimming, it's brilliant. I'll see you in a week.
All right then.
Skibby, if you don't want to stay with him there's room in the car.
Do you want to come?
Have you noticed the names of these little streets?
They seem to be suggesting that someone's close.
You've got Lyon's Close, Jackson's Close,
if I get too close they might name a close after me.
A close is more like an alley.
They were often named after well-known people who lived nearby.
In this house was a very wealthy widow called Mary King.
-It's called Mary King's Close.
This is the City Chambers, where the council meet.
What are you showing me next, the bottle bank(?)
No, there's a reason I've brought you here.
Beneath our feet is a labyrinth of houses and streets.
They're hidden by this building.
-That's exactly where we're going.
Welcome to Mary King's Close.
-Don't do that!
-Isn't it brilliant?
It's really big. It's a proper old street.
-Who used to live here?
All sorts of people from the poorest of the poor to the richest,
The people that were really poor lived at the very bottom
and the people who were really rich lived at the top.
Why did they build buildings on top of these streets?
It's because of the rock they're on. It's a very, very strong bedrock,
and so the City Chambers are built on top of these
because they're using these rocks as foundations.
Now I love this bit.
This is actually a house,
just this one room is a house where the poorest of the poor lived.
The whole family in one room?
About eight to 12 people in one room.
Wait for it, look over there in the corner. You see that bucket?
-That's where they all do their business.
-That's the toilet?
-It would stink in here.
-Absolutely gross. I like it down here though.
HE HACKS AND COUGHS
Let me know if you've got any of the following symptoms, OK?
I've been feeling very achy, yes.
Headaches, yes, but severe, no.
Just painful to the point where I can't think straight.
Any painful seeping boils commonly found in the groin, armpit or neck?
-No... Nothing like that at all.
-What's that then?
Oh yes, I forgot about that.
I think you've got the plague.
Is that good?
No. The plague killed around 200 million people in the 14th century.
How do they cure that exactly then?
Well, they tried everything, from herbs and garlics to dried toads.
-They even tried liquorice.
-I love liquorice.
Me too. It didn't work though.
In the end they just lanced off the patient's boils
and drained out all their blood.
-Is this plague thing totally incurable?
In modern medicines antibiotics are proved to clear the plague right up.
So I'll be all right then?
No. You see judging from your medieval dress and the fact
that the plague hasn't been seen since 1655, I'd diagnose you as dead.
And in fact a ghost.
Oh, this is it, this is one of the most famous rooms ever.
-Yeah, look at all these toys.
There's a story that goes with this.
In 1645, there was a young girl called Annie, who got the plague.
The family had two choices.
They could either leave her in here and shut the door
so that she died in here on her own.
Or leave her in there with the other family,
but that would mean the family might get infected with the plague.
The choice they made was to leave Annie here on her own.
-She got better and everything was OK?
-No, she died.
She became a ghost and then in 1992 a psychic came here
and when she came into the room she said
-she saw Annie stood just over here.
-Don't tell me this.
She felt she was sad, like she'd lost one of her dolls,
so she bought her this doll, and when she brought it in
she said the spirit in the room lifted.
How cool is that? It's also quite scary,
so I'm just going to go before anything weird happens.
Yeah, I'm with you on that one.
-You all right?
I've got a bit of a headache.
Oh, now what were the symptoms of the plague?
-It's not the plague, is it.
-There was headache, fever, coughing...
HE COUGHS: Oh.
We'd better get you to a doctor.
What were the next symptoms? There was pus-filled boils and vomiting.
Oh, Ed, what are these spots on my hands?
Barney hasn't really got the plague, just a touch of man flu.
If you've got a collection of stamps you're going to love what
this grown-up collects on the Isle of Wight.
I told you, if you dress like a postman you'll get chased by a dog.
I only dressed up to impress Arthur the postbox collector.
I thought you'd appreciate the effort.
Why don't you just go and meet him?
20 years collecting, 200 in the collection.
Arthur is postbox man.
Arthur has the largest collection of postboxes in the UK.
"Letters" have a look at his museum.
How long have you been collecting these, Arthur?
I started in the early 1990s with a postbox from Rhyl in North Wales.
So you don't just have postboxes,
you've got postbags, telephone booths, what else have you got?
Anything to do with Royal Mail or Post Office, we collect.
Postboxes used to be green
but they were changed to red when people kept bumping into them.
And now it's time for the postbox challenge.
-We've got a few questions here for you to answer.
-You have to post the answers in the correct postbox.
Are you ready?
This is fun!
He mentioned his first one he got from Rhyl, I reckon that's in Wales.
-I'm looking for one with Welsh on.
-OK, second one, most valuable.
-It's got to be one of these early ones.
-I'll put it to the back.
Oldest, oldest, OK.
I might possibly have been touching that one earlier.
I'm going to go for, it's going to be a green one.
I wouldn't go up there.
-Scottish, Scottish, Scottish.
Newest. OK, I reckon it's going to be this one, this looks new.
-This one is past it so it'll go in there.
I've got Welsh, Scottish and most valuable left.
Queen Victoria. Go on.
I'm going to go with that, I don't know what it is. And Scottish.
-I'll put one in there.
-Where's the Scottish one?
One in there.
I'm a long way from Scotland, that's for sure. The Isle of Wight.
-One in there.
-Give me a clue!
-That'll do, that will do.
Shambles, absolute shambles.
The actual winner with one right is Holly.
Yes! Which one did I get right?
-You got the Welsh one right.
-Sorry we let you down, Arthur.
But to make it up to you, we're going to give you this All Over The Place postbox.
Oh, wow! That's nice.
I haven't got one like that,
that must be number 201 in my collection. Thank you very much.
# What are you thinking? What are you thinking?
# What are you thinking? #
'Ed, this is Bristol's Clifton Suspension Bridge.
'See these two towers? The length between these two is called the span
'and the span is 230 metres.
'At the time it was built
'it was the longest span of any bridge in the world.'
'That's about 1,712 chocolate bars.'
'It crosses the River Avon
'and the bridge is 76 metres above the water.'
'That's 608 chocolate bars.'
'What's all these chocolate bar facts?
'You'd think the world was made of chocolate or something!'
'The first chocolate bar was made in Bristol
'nearly 150 years ago by Mr Joseph Fry.'
'Right here in Bristol? No way.'
'I should coco. Get it? Cocoa. Chocolate is made of cocoa beans.
'What would the world be like if it was made of chocolate?'
If the world was made of chocolate
there wouldn't be any fruit or vegetables so you could get
your five a day, like, your five types of chocolate a day.
Milk chocolate, dark, white, orange, mint chocolate.
What would the buildings be made of, chocolate?
That would annoy workers because you build it and it melts.
Eventually we just eat everything and then we'd float about in space
with chocolate over our face with chocolate balls and then explode.
# Things that stick out of the sea. #
That area around there's boring.
In fact, there's not a lot going on at all. What's that?
I think it's called the Montgomery wreck.
Ironically, I heard it was full of explosives.
You heard right, Ed.
This is the Montgomery wreck.
It was a cargo ship during World War Two
and when it sank it was full of explosives.
It was shipwrecked on a sand spit and the weight
of all those explosives caused it to break in two.
Ed And Holly, you each have 40 seconds
to find out as much as you can about the Montgomery wreck.
Ed, you've got David, our land lubber.
Holly, you've got Dave, our salty seadog.
Whoever finds out the most facts will get to go
on the boat for a closer look.
3, 2, 1. Go.
Hello, David, I'm Ed. I've got loads of questions to ask you.
-When did the boat sink?
-20th August 1944.
-Who's it named after?
-I've no idea.
-Where did it sail from?
-Hogg Island, Philadelphia.
-How deep under water is it?
-It's about 20 foot.
-How many men were on it?
-50 crew plus three armed guards.
-How far out to sea is it?
-About three miles.
-What was it carrying?
-It was carrying ammunition and bombs.
How many ships go past it every day?
20 or 30, I should think.
Is it safe?
It's safe where it is at the moment.
-How heavy is it?
-I've no idea.
No giant animals have attacked it at any time?
Not according to the records.
And the person who found out the most facts is...
Yes, thank you, David, I want to go on the boat so much. All aboard.
Bye, Holly. The loser!
We're finally heading out to Montgomery wreck.
It'll take about half an hour to get there
so hopefully I won't get seasick.
I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to that.
I feel a bit scared. There's all these buoys saying danger,
there's a big pile of bombs over there.
-It's only 3,000 tons of high explosive.
Don't be scared about that.
I think we need a status report on the ship.
-Status report, please.
-Status report on the ship.
I told you, Sir, we're shipwrecked.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, we're having a party this afternoon?
Well, no Sir, we've been laid on the bottom
of the Thames estuary for nearly 70 years now.
So how long is it going to take to get fixed, a couple of weeks?
We've got to get all these explosives over to our troops in France
if we're going to win this war.
I think the war is probably over, sir.
The war is over? Ed, brilliant news, let's crack open them fireworks.
-I'm not sure that's a good idea, sir.
Because very small explosions such as a firework could ignite them all.
-And what's your point?
-Well, if they were to go off, Sir,
there would be an explosion which would be so large
it would smash every window in Sheerness, sir.
Well in that case, Mr Scott, I believe our time has come.
-Yes, sir, abandon ship.
Oh, thank you, captain, for a moment
I thought we were going to be stuck on this shipwreck forever.
Not a problem. I wonder if the other passengers
can hear this siren all right.
I know, I might just set off this flare just so everyone can see.
That's it, I give up.
What's his little jelly beans?
What does it actually look like under there?
Where are the bits of the ship?
Well, it's quite rotten, actually,
but probably you'd get a better view on the radar.
-They can show us in there?
This is the skipper, Dave.
-There's a lot of Daves around here, aren't there?
So, David outside,
he said to me that you could show me the ship on the radar.
Well, that's the mast of the ship in the middle of the radar there.
And those buoys all the way round are the warning buoys that circle it.
So what does the actual underneath look like?
Well, that's a picture of the sonar.
You can really see where it got caught on that spit, can't you?
What are you doing? Go away!
Go, get back!
Get back, there's 3,000 tonnes of explosives under there!
Calm down, Ed.
-How did it go?
-Oh, it was amazing.
The whole thing's covered in bombs and stuff.
It's like really dangerous.
Ships were trying to crash into it. I was going, "No, get back!"
Yeah, I'm sure it did, Ed.
-Dave let me drive the boat.
-At one point, a giant shark tried to attack it.
-And an octopus.
-But I fought them off.
-I made friends with a seagull called Lesley,
who's the bigger winner?
-To be honest, I think it was me.
-Who had a better morning?
# There is a railway station that's the pride of the Welsh nation
# On an island that is known as Anglesey
# An extraordinary claim is based upon its chosen name
# Which guarantees it's place in history
# With nearly 60 letters it's impossible to better it
# And so it is my pleasure to announce
# The longest name in the UK I find is quite easy to say
# Though some have claimed it tricky to pronounce. #
# ..Llllantysiliogogogoch. #
That's easy for you to say.
In English, it means the church of St Mary
in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool
-by the Church of St Silos in the red cave.
-That's easy for you to say.
# I see that you are impressed and so it really must be stressed
# To say it Well, it is a piece of cake.
# It's true, I can't deny it Oh, I really want to try it
# Though I'm worried that I might make a mistake.
# But I think you'll find Upon inspection of this sign
# There are some hints that just might help you on your way.
-# Go on, I'll have a bash.
-I'm sure you'll learn it in a flash
# Why, it only took me 27 days
# Repeat after me.
# By George, you've got it
# You have to say that that was fun and so it seems my job is done
# And I must go upon my way again
# I managed to convey it but it took so long to say it
# That I've only gone and missed my blooming train! #
Don't worry, I'll get a cab.
Hello? How much for a cab back to London, please?
Where am I? I'm just at the station in...
Here we go again!
# Llllantysiliogogogoch. #
How much? I'll walk.
I can't take this any more! I don't want to fight the dragon!
'Ere, George, you're pathetic.
Why are you scared of a stupid old dragon?
What do you mean, why am I scared of dragons? Dragons kill people.
Anyway, why am I talking to you?
-You're an orange.
-Don't you know the story of St George and Dragon?
You should, considering you're George.
Anyway, the fable goes, if you rub yourself with orange, then you'll
be protected by the zesty magic and the dragon won't be able to hurt you.
Why are you rubbing an orange all over yourself?
Because the orange said it was going to protect me from you.
What? You don't need protecting from me. I'm not going to kill you.
-I'm here to beat you.
In the Boat Race. The Dragon Boat race.
The team that paddles hardest and crosses the finish line first wins.
So I'm sure they've finished rowing by now!
-Hello, team, how are we? Nice to see you. Hello.
-Nice to meet you, Joe.
Is this the dream team? This is the winning team.
Can you explain to me what dragon boat racing is all about?
Dragon boat racing comes from China.
It's a race that the local townsfolk used to do to celebrate the harvest.
And hopefully we'll win, yeah, team?
-Let's put it in there.
One, two, three, wooo!
Joe's team are called The Motley Crew.
-So, you're my team, are you?
The question I want to ask is what's with the drummer in each boat?
It's meant to be for timing. So when the drum beats
your paddle should be in the water so you can pull back.
I was thinking I might just freestyle it, do my own thing?
No, no, no. You got to be in time. We've got to win.
Right, OK, pressure's on now.
Ed's team are called Boys & Waders.
That will teach me.
-This is it.
-Man against boy.
-Boy against man.
-You're going to have a wash, Swash.
-Are you ready? Let's go!
-Peachy, don't fall in, son.
-It's you that's worried about falling in.
-You nearly got an early bath there, Joe.
-My foot's wet.
Seriously, let's not get in the water, though, yeah? Let's stay dry.
Feeling confident, are you, Joe?
Joe's team are in boat number one,
which is good cos it will look the same if it capsizes.
-Ed, you look like a natural.
Three! One, two!
They're only going up one and two.
Maybe if they went to three they would go a little bit faster.
One, two, one, two.
Oh no, Ed and Joe are both being followed by a giant pointing finger.
I hope it doesn't slow them down any.
Aarr. It's neck and neck at the moment, or paddle and paddle.
I can't quite see who's "dragon" behind!
I don't think anyone's "dragon" their paddles. Oh, it's great, this.
I'm exhausted watching, though.
It looks like Ed in boat two is just in the lead,
but only by a dragon's breath.
It's so close as they approached the finish line. It's too close to call.
It's going to be a photo-finish.
It's been given to Joe's team with a time of 60.55 seconds.
-Don't do that, mate.
Ed was beaten by a fraction of a second,
as his team finished in 60.97 seconds.
OK, it gives me great pleasure
to award the Dragon Boat Challenge Trophy to Joe for winning today.
-Thank you so much.
I'd just like to take a quick moment to say thank you to my mum
and my dad and my sisters for putting up with me...
Yeah, all right, some of us have homes to go to, you know. Come on.
All right, don't be jealous that I won, all right.
Don't hold against me.
I think you just put this on,
just to hide your face because you let yourself down today.
To be honest, I could do with hiding my shame. I'm sorry!
Now he's gone, I'd just like to finish what I started.
Thanks to everyone for being there, supporting me, you've been my rock.
I couldn't have done it...
You've been watching All Over The Place!
