# Horrible Histories Gory...

# ..Games! #

0:00:230:00:24

Hello, and welcome to Gory Games,

0:00:240:00:26

with me...

0:00:260:00:28

And me...

0:00:280:00:30

How do we know you're the real Dave Lamb

0:00:300:00:32

and you haven't been replaced by an evil robot version?

0:00:320:00:35

I am not a robot.

0:00:350:00:37

Well, that's just what a robot would say.

0:00:370:00:39

Rattus, how do you want me to prove to you that I'm not a r...

0:00:390:00:44

RATTUS GASPS

0:00:440:00:45

I'm kidding.

0:00:480:00:49

Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:00:490:00:52

Hi, I'm Charlie and I'm from Swindon!

0:00:520:00:54

Hello, Charlie!

0:00:540:00:55

Hey, I'm Lily and I'm from Gloucester.

0:00:550:00:57

Hello, Lily!

0:00:570:00:58

Hi, I'm Isaac and I'm from London.

0:00:580:01:00

Hello, Isaac!

0:01:000:01:02

Welcome, everyone. You lot are all playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:020:01:07

At the end of the show, the person with the highest year score

0:01:070:01:10

will win a fabulous prize that I didn't think

0:01:100:01:13

I could ever part with because it got so stuck to me.

0:01:130:01:17

THEY LAUGH

0:01:170:01:18

I dread to think.

0:01:180:01:20

So, let's get this show on the road with a round that

0:01:200:01:22

I like to call Round One.

0:01:220:01:25

What's it about? Let's go over to the Gory Grid.

0:01:250:01:28

It's the Frightful First World War.

0:01:280:01:31

So, four questions on World War I coming up.

0:01:310:01:35

The person who gets the most right wins the first Year Sphere,

0:01:350:01:38

and your four World War I topics are...

0:01:380:01:42

So, Isaac, you get to pick first in this round.

0:01:470:01:50

Which one of those would you like?

0:01:500:01:52

Toilets.

0:01:520:01:53

You won't be surprised to learn that this is

0:01:530:01:56

a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:01:560:01:58

In the trenches in World War I,

0:01:580:02:00

why was going to the toilet sheds dangerous?

0:02:000:02:03

Was it A - because rats would bite your bum,

0:02:030:02:07

B - there was so much poo you could drown in it,

0:02:070:02:11

or C - the Germans dropped bombs on the loos?

0:02:110:02:15

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:02:150:02:17

Interesting.

0:02:170:02:19

The boys agreeing on C,

0:02:190:02:21

Lily on her own there with B.

0:02:210:02:23

Rattus, what's the correct answer?

0:02:230:02:24

Oh, the answer is...

0:02:240:02:26

C!

0:02:260:02:28

Yes, the enemy targeted the toilet sheds, dropped bombs on them.

0:02:280:02:31

Mind you, with their dodgy trenches' diet, I expect our soldiers

0:02:310:02:35

experienced plenty of nasty explosions in the loo!

0:02:350:02:39

You know...

0:02:390:02:40

I do apologise.

0:02:420:02:43

So, Isaac and Charlie, you're off the mark with an eyeball

0:02:430:02:45

and a skull apiece.

0:02:450:02:46

No brains awarded yet, Lily, but you do get to choose

0:02:460:02:49

the next category, what would you like?

0:02:490:02:51

Could I have Slang please?

0:02:510:02:52

What was trench slang for spilling food on your uniform?

0:02:520:02:56

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:03:020:03:04

Everybody has gone for B.

0:03:060:03:07

Are they all right, or are they all wrong?

0:03:070:03:10

The answer is...

0:03:100:03:11

Which makes me one of the most decorated soldiers in World War I.

0:03:130:03:16

HE BURPS

0:03:160:03:18

Revolting. So the answer was they were all wrong.

0:03:180:03:22

No further points to be awarded there.

0:03:220:03:23

Charlie, it's your turn to pick a category.

0:03:230:03:25

Whales, please.

0:03:250:03:26

And that, Charlie, is a prop question.

0:03:260:03:29

Prop question, prop question.

0:03:290:03:32

Yeah, yeah, and you know what? I've decided I'm not doing it.

0:03:320:03:34

-What?

-I'm fed up with going over to the cupboard

0:03:340:03:37

and being hit by the two boxing glove booby traps.

0:03:370:03:39

It's humiliating. I am a grown man.

0:03:390:03:42

Look, there aren't two booby traps this time, I promise.

0:03:420:03:45

You promise?

0:03:450:03:47

You have my word, there aren't two booby traps.

0:03:470:03:50

Well, I suppose that'll have to do.

0:03:500:03:52

Let's have a look in this one.

0:03:520:03:53

Oh!

0:03:530:03:55

Yeah, all three are booby trapped.

0:03:550:03:57

The prop's just here under the desk.

0:03:570:03:59

Thanks, Rattus. Helpful as always.

0:03:590:04:02

Yes, here is the prop, and that, I have to say,

0:04:030:04:06

is a tub of whale oil.

0:04:060:04:08

-Nice.

-Ugh.

0:04:080:04:09

How did soldiers use whale oil to stay warm in the freezing trenches?

0:04:090:04:14

Would they A - drink it,

0:04:140:04:16

B - smear it on themselves,

0:04:160:04:18

or C - use it to start a fire?

0:04:180:04:20

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:04:200:04:23

All going for B,

0:04:230:04:25

and I can tell you, you are all

0:04:250:04:27

absolutely right.

0:04:270:04:29

The soldiers would smear

0:04:290:04:30

whale oil on their body for an extra layer or insulation.

0:04:300:04:33

Think I'd rather get cold.

0:04:330:04:34

Think I'd rather drink it! Yum, yum.

0:04:340:04:37

So, points all round there,

0:04:370:04:39

and it's all still to play for.

0:04:390:04:41

The final question is on George V, and this is what it is.

0:04:410:04:44

In World War I what was surprising about British King George V

0:04:440:04:49

and his enemy, Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany?

0:04:490:04:52

A - they were both Tottenham Hotspur fans,

0:04:520:04:54

B - they were cousins,

0:04:540:04:56

or C - they were both phobic about spiders?

0:04:560:04:59

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:04:590:05:01

The boys have agreed on B,

0:05:010:05:04

Lily has gone on her own with A.

0:05:040:05:06

What is the answer?

0:05:060:05:07

The answer is...

0:05:070:05:09

B - they were cousins.

0:05:090:05:10

They were both the grandchildren of Queen Victoria.

0:05:100:05:13

Talk about families at war, hey?

0:05:130:05:15

So that's another eyeball

0:05:150:05:17

and another skull,

0:05:170:05:19

and that means that we have a tie-breaker situation.

0:05:190:05:23

Beginning with the letter P, what was the name of the birds

0:05:240:05:27

used by the British Army in World War I to send messages?

0:05:270:05:30

ACHOO

0:05:300:05:31

Pigeon.

0:05:310:05:32

Isaac, pigeons is absolutely right.

0:05:320:05:34

Congratulations, it's time for you to choose your Year Sphere

0:05:340:05:37

and it's time for me to say

0:05:370:05:39

"All hail the potty pyramid!"

0:05:390:05:44

ANGELIC SINGING

0:05:440:05:48

Help yourself, please, Isaac, but choose carefully.

0:05:480:05:51

AD dates will be added to your total, of course,

0:05:510:05:54

BC dates subtracted from it.

0:05:540:05:56

We'll find out what's in there at the end of the show.

0:05:560:06:00

So, winning the World War I quiz means Isaac is automatically

0:06:000:06:03

through to play the World War I game,

0:06:030:06:05

but will he be alone or will everyone get to play?

0:06:050:06:08

Let's find out, shall we?

0:06:080:06:10

It's a Single Player Silly Game.

0:06:130:06:16

So, Isaac, off you go down that Time Sewer.

0:06:160:06:18

Whee!

0:06:220:06:23

It's time to play...

0:06:250:06:27

You are a British fighter ace doing battle against the infamous

0:06:300:06:33

Red Baron and his so-called Flying Circus.

0:06:330:06:37

You must load, aim and hit those enemy planes.

0:06:370:06:40

There's one point for every successful hit

0:06:400:06:42

and if you get the Red Baron himself, you get two points.

0:06:420:06:45

Score six points in the time limit to win your Year Sphere.

0:06:450:06:48

Battle begins now!

0:06:480:06:50

HORN BLARES

0:06:500:06:52

Here we go, Flying Circus.

0:06:520:06:54

Isaac's missed with his first shot there, that's a bit of a shame.

0:06:540:06:57

Look at that, he's wobbling about there,

0:06:570:07:00

not so stable up there in the air.

0:07:000:07:02

Oh, no, I think I'm getting airsick, Dave!

0:07:020:07:04

Yes, but Rattus, they're not real planes!

0:07:040:07:06

Bleurgh, that's real sick, though!

0:07:060:07:08

Oh, heavens!

0:07:080:07:09

It really is very difficult to aim well in these windy conditions

0:07:090:07:12

but he needs to focus now and get his eye in.

0:07:120:07:14

It looks as if it's getting windier, if anything, Rattus.

0:07:140:07:17

It must be quite terrifying.

0:07:170:07:19

Absolutely terrifying, he's rocking about.

0:07:190:07:21

It's no wonder...

0:07:210:07:22

There's the Red Baron! There's the Red Baron!

0:07:220:07:24

Come on! BOTH: Get the Red Baron!

0:07:240:07:27

Oh, he's gone.

0:07:270:07:28

Well, he'll be disappointed with that.

0:07:280:07:31

Now, here goes... He's got one!

0:07:310:07:33

-Oh, he's got one!

-Lovely to see that!

0:07:330:07:35

That is his first one.

0:07:350:07:37

What a good shot it was.

0:07:370:07:38

He just needs another five of those, Rattus,

0:07:380:07:40

and he's in business here. Though time is ticking on.

0:07:400:07:43

'30 seconds remaining.'

0:07:430:07:45

Told you, just 30 seconds to go now.

0:07:450:07:47

Oh, he's got another one! That's two!

0:07:470:07:50

So he just needs four more,

0:07:500:07:51

although that might be a challenge

0:07:510:07:53

in the time left.

0:07:530:07:55

Yeah.

0:07:550:07:56

Oh! Carrier pigeon!

0:07:560:07:57

-To where?

-What?

0:07:570:07:59

Carry a pigeon to where?

0:07:590:08:00

Why can't it fly?

0:08:000:08:01

How come I have to do all the work?

0:08:010:08:03

Oh, Rattus.

0:08:030:08:05

Oh, and he's dropped that one,

0:08:050:08:06

that could cost him.

0:08:060:08:08

There's the pigeon again.

0:08:080:08:09

Oh, and there's the Red Baron!

0:08:090:08:10

Oh, no he's missed it.

0:08:100:08:12

The seconds are ticking away here now.

0:08:120:08:14

'Time's up.'

0:08:140:08:15

Oh, and it's all over. Bad luck, Airman Isaac.

0:08:150:08:19

Well done, fella.

0:08:200:08:21

Sadly, you didn't beat the Red Baron and his cronies

0:08:210:08:24

so no Year Sphere for you, I'm afraid, but a very good effort.

0:08:240:08:28

OK, Round Two time now, let's find out what's up next.

0:08:280:08:31

Over to the Gory Grid.

0:08:310:08:34

It's the Rotten Romans.

0:08:340:08:37

Four questions again, and here are

0:08:370:08:40

your all-important Roman topics...

0:08:400:08:43

So Lily, it's your turn to pick first this time.

0:08:490:08:52

What would you like?

0:08:520:08:53

Could I have weddings, please?

0:08:530:08:54

Here comes your question, ready or not.

0:08:540:08:58

A - burn a sacrificial cabbage,

0:09:040:09:06

B - sacrifice a goat,

0:09:060:09:08

or C - read a chicken's entrails?

0:09:080:09:11

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:09:110:09:13

So you've all gone for B.

0:09:140:09:16

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:09:160:09:18

Right then, the answer is...

0:09:180:09:20

A. The priest would burn a sacrificial cabbage.

0:09:200:09:24

I don't know, vegetables at a wedding ceremony.

0:09:240:09:26

I had a leak at your wedding, Dave.

0:09:260:09:28

Did you?

0:09:280:09:30

Didn't have any vegetables, though.

0:09:300:09:32

CHILDREN LAUGH

0:09:320:09:33

So, no points there. Charlie, it's your turn to pick a category.

0:09:330:09:36

Table manners, please.

0:09:360:09:38

-ROMAN:

-What was it unlucky to mention at a Roman dinner table?

0:09:380:09:43

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:09:490:09:51

Isaac's gone for C,

0:09:510:09:53

Lily and Charlie

0:09:530:09:54

have both gone for B.

0:09:540:09:55

What's the correct answer?

0:09:550:09:57

The answer is...

0:09:570:09:58

Although if you did mention fire, you could remedy it by

0:09:590:10:03

pouring water on the table.

0:10:030:10:05

Unfortunately, spilling water was also unlucky!

0:10:050:10:09

OK, Isaac, you have won a point there.

0:10:090:10:11

One eyeball to you, lovely stuff.

0:10:110:10:13

Now it's your go. Let's pick a category.

0:10:130:10:15

Beauty treatments.

0:10:150:10:17

That is a question for Rattus Rattus.

0:10:170:10:19

What were the key ingredients

0:10:190:10:21

of a Roman ointment for removing leg hair?

0:10:210:10:24

Wild she-goat blood and powdered what?

0:10:240:10:27

Answer that questions now, please.

0:10:320:10:35

Ooh! They've all agreed on C.

0:10:360:10:39

Rattus, are they all right or are they all wrong?

0:10:390:10:42

They're all wrong!

0:10:420:10:43

Cos the answer is...

0:10:430:10:45

Yes, to make Roman leg hair remover, simply mix wild she-goat blood

0:10:450:10:50

with powdered viper.

0:10:500:10:52

Only one point scored so far.

0:10:520:10:53

That means everyone's still in it.

0:10:530:10:56

And the final question is on emperors.

0:10:560:10:59

Evil Emperor Commodus liked pretending to be a gladiator.

0:10:590:11:03

Whilst he fought with a sword, he'd arm his opponent with what?

0:11:030:11:08

Show me now, please.

0:11:130:11:15

Isaac's gone for A,

0:11:160:11:18

Lily and Charlie have gone for B.

0:11:180:11:19

What's the answer, please?

0:11:190:11:21

The answer is...

0:11:210:11:22

He'd arm his opponent with sponges, just to make sure he'd win.

0:11:230:11:27

Commodus would also tie their legs together, the cheat!

0:11:270:11:31

Yeah, which is the only way you'll ever beat me, Lamb!

0:11:310:11:34

All right, Rattus, all right, steady on.

0:11:340:11:36

No need to come to blows over it.

0:11:360:11:37

Well played, Charlie and Lily.

0:11:370:11:39

That means that, at the end of the round,

0:11:390:11:41

we go to a tie-break question.

0:11:410:11:44

Beginning with the letter B, name the queen of the Iceni tribe who

0:11:460:11:49

led a rebellion against the Romans in...

0:11:490:11:51

Lily.

0:11:510:11:52

Boudicca?

0:11:520:11:53

Boudicca is absolutely right.

0:11:530:11:55

Well buzzed, Lily. You've won yourself a Year Sphere,

0:11:550:11:58

Please collect it now.

0:11:580:12:00

CHOIR SINGS

0:12:000:12:03

Very good.

0:12:050:12:06

As the winner of the Roman quiz,

0:12:060:12:07

you are through to play the Roman game,

0:12:070:12:10

but will it be just you, or will the others get to play too?

0:12:100:12:13

There's only one way to find out.

0:12:130:12:15

It's an All Play Gory Game.

0:12:190:12:22

So, off down the Time Sewer with the whole lot of you.

0:12:220:12:24

-Bye, Dave.

-Bye, Charlie.

0:12:240:12:27

See you later!

0:12:270:12:29

It's time to play...

0:12:310:12:32

When they laid siege to an enemy fortress, the Romans resorted

0:12:350:12:38

to some pretty dirty tricks.

0:12:380:12:40

They would catapult rocks, beehives and even the severed heads

0:12:400:12:43

of defenders they'd captured.

0:12:430:12:45

Your challenge is to fire as many missiles into your

0:12:450:12:48

fortress target as possible.

0:12:480:12:50

Ready, steady...

0:12:500:12:52

HORN BLARES

0:12:520:12:53

They're off! So they've got to dash back to the basket, Rattus,

0:12:530:12:56

grab either a rock, a beehive or a severed head

0:12:560:12:58

and then fire it to their fortress.

0:12:580:13:00

He's put that one into Lily's!

0:13:000:13:02

That's gone into Lily's.

0:13:020:13:04

That one won't count, I can assure you of that.

0:13:040:13:06

-There's one there for Charlie!

-Well played!

0:13:060:13:08

First piece of sedimentary,

0:13:080:13:09

right down, back of the net!

0:13:090:13:11

And that is a genuine one for Lily.

0:13:110:13:13

A beehive there, Rattus, quite the bee's knees of missiles.

0:13:130:13:18

Do bees have knees, Dave?

0:13:180:13:19

I don't know, Rattus, that's hardly the point.

0:13:190:13:21

Have you tried asking one?

0:13:210:13:22

I have, but they're always too busy.

0:13:220:13:24

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:13:240:13:25

Yeah, thank you Rattus.

0:13:250:13:26

Oh there's a lovely beehive for Charlie.

0:13:260:13:28

Oh, and another rock for Lily.

0:13:280:13:30

Dave, how do you make a bee angry?

0:13:300:13:33

I don't know. How do you make a bee angry?

0:13:330:13:36

You catapult his hive into a fortress.

0:13:360:13:38

Oh, sorry, I thought you were doing a joke.

0:13:380:13:41

No, no, not everything has to be a joke, Dave.

0:13:410:13:43

That's true.

0:13:430:13:44

Charlie now beginning to line another one up.

0:13:440:13:47

Boom! Oh, he's incredible at this game!

0:13:470:13:50

Lily lining up a hive.

0:13:500:13:51

Oh, that's just short.

0:13:510:13:53

Look at that, a severed head there from Isaac.

0:13:530:13:56

-That's gone in!

-It's gone in! The head's in!

0:13:560:13:59

Terrific! His first one and it's a very, very good one.

0:13:590:14:02

Superb stuff.

0:14:020:14:04

Having said that, though, I think he may struggle

0:14:040:14:06

to catch Lily and Charlie.

0:14:060:14:08

Especially now, Rattus.

0:14:080:14:10

Oh, look at that!

0:14:100:14:11

Synchronised slam dunk!

0:14:110:14:13

'30 seconds remaining.'

0:14:130:14:15

So, just 30 seconds remaining and I think we

0:14:150:14:18

can say now that this is an out and out

0:14:180:14:20

fight between Lily and Charlie.

0:14:200:14:22

I'll give you a heads up on the headcount.

0:14:220:14:24

It looks like Lily is ahead by a head.

0:14:240:14:26

I'm heading off, I've had enough.

0:14:260:14:29

You've head enough?

0:14:290:14:30

I think that's what you mean.

0:14:300:14:32

Lily maintains her lead nicely there with seven.

0:14:320:14:35

Here she goes again.

0:14:350:14:36

Cor, that one's gone flying off!

0:14:360:14:39

Maybe that's opened the door for Charlie.

0:14:390:14:40

Oh, but I think he's missed that one.

0:14:400:14:43

Lily with another chance to

0:14:430:14:44

extend her lead. That's eight!

0:14:440:14:45

'Time's up.'

0:14:450:14:47

Lily has won that heads down... hands down!

0:14:470:14:49

Out of there like greased lightning. Superb.

0:14:520:14:55

Well played, well played indeed.

0:14:550:14:58

Very close there, Charlie, but the winner with eight points was Lily.

0:14:580:15:03

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:15:030:15:05

CHOIR SINGS

0:15:050:15:07

Good job, very close, very close it was too.

0:15:080:15:11

OK, Round Three, and it's over to the Gory Grid

0:15:110:15:14

to find out what's up next.

0:15:140:15:16

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:15:170:15:20

Four questions, as always, and here are your four Middle Ages topics...

0:15:200:15:25

Charlie, it is your turn to lead us off. What will you have?

0:15:300:15:33

Can I have Jesters, please?

0:15:330:15:35

Now brace yourself, Rattus, because this is a question from Death!

0:15:350:15:39

Aaargh!

0:15:390:15:41

THUNDER CRASHES

0:15:410:15:42

At the Battle of Hastings, the Normans were led into battle

0:15:420:15:45

by William the Conqueror's jester, but what was he doing?

0:15:450:15:49

A - telling jokes,

0:15:490:15:51

B - juggling swords,

0:15:510:15:53

or C - throwing custard pies?

0:15:530:15:55

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:15:550:15:58

They've all gone for B.

0:15:580:16:00

Back over to Death for the answer.

0:16:000:16:02

The answer is...

0:16:020:16:05

He rushed on his own at the entire Saxon army juggling swords

0:16:050:16:09

and was killed immediately.

0:16:090:16:11

DEATH LAUGHS

0:16:110:16:12

I think that's what you call a tough crowd.

0:16:120:16:16

Congratulations, everyone.

0:16:160:16:17

That's a point each

0:16:170:16:19

at the start of the round.

0:16:190:16:20

So Isaac, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:16:200:16:22

Food.

0:16:220:16:23

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:16:240:16:27

Certainly is.

0:16:270:16:28

Which of these was not eaten

0:16:280:16:30

in the Middle Ages in Britain?

0:16:300:16:32

A - stuffed dolphin stomach,

0:16:330:16:35

B - deer antler soup,

0:16:350:16:37

or C - guinea pig stew?

0:16:370:16:39

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:16:390:16:42

They're all in total agreement,

0:16:420:16:44

they've all gone for C.

0:16:440:16:46

Are they all right or are they all wrong, Rattus?

0:16:460:16:48

They're all right.

0:16:480:16:49

C indeed, guinea pig stew.

0:16:490:16:51

There weren't any guinea pigs in Britain in the Middle Ages,

0:16:510:16:54

otherwise I am pretty sure they'd have been scoffed as well.

0:16:540:16:58

Excellent work.

0:16:580:16:59

We're onto an absolute flier here.

0:16:590:17:01

Everybody got a full house.

0:17:010:17:03

Next to choose is Lily.

0:17:030:17:05

Could I have Make-up, please?

0:17:050:17:07

Isabeau of Bavaria, a posh German princess,

0:17:070:17:10

wore make-up made from boar brains, wolf blood, and what?

0:17:100:17:15

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:17:210:17:23

Well, we have a difference of opinion.

0:17:230:17:26

Isaac thinks it's A,

0:17:260:17:27

the other two think it's C.

0:17:270:17:29

What's the answer?

0:17:290:17:30

The answer is...

0:17:300:17:32

B, crocodile glands.

0:17:320:17:35

And it was expensive, too,

0:17:350:17:36

because the crocodiles had to come all the way from Egypt.

0:17:360:17:40

Wherever that is. I don't know.

0:17:400:17:43

Well, two points each going into the final question,

0:17:430:17:46

and the final category is King John.

0:17:460:17:48

King John was a bit of a disastrous king.

0:17:480:17:52

He managed to annoy pretty much everyone.

0:17:520:17:55

But how did he anger the Irish princes?

0:17:550:17:58

A - he called them all girls,

0:17:580:18:01

B - he laughed at their beards,

0:18:010:18:04

or C - he said their names were stupid?

0:18:040:18:07

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:18:070:18:09

Well, Isaac's gone with B,

0:18:090:18:11

Lily and Charlie have gone with C.

0:18:110:18:14

Let's find out who, if anyone, is right.

0:18:140:18:17

The answer is...

0:18:170:18:19

King John laughed at their beards, the big silly.

0:18:190:18:24

Although, to be fair, facial hair can look pretty stupid, hey, Rattus?

0:18:240:18:28

Well, congratulations, Isaac,

0:18:280:18:30

you have just won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:18:300:18:33

Please collect it now.

0:18:330:18:34

CHOIR SINGS

0:18:340:18:38

So Isaac, you have won the Middle Ages quiz,

0:18:400:18:42

you're through to play the Middle Ages game.

0:18:420:18:44

But will you be playing alone or will everyone get to play?

0:18:440:18:47

Let's find out.

0:18:470:18:49

It's an All Play Gory Game,

0:18:530:18:55

so off down the Time Sewer again with the lot of ya.

0:18:550:18:59

Well done, Charlie.

0:18:590:19:00

Geronimo!

0:19:000:19:01

I know I'm going to win this!

0:19:010:19:03

And Isaac is confident.

0:19:030:19:04

Nobody messed with William the Conqueror when he was alive,

0:19:060:19:09

but when he was dead, well, that's a whole other story.

0:19:090:19:12

It's time to play...

0:19:120:19:14

At William's funeral, his servants stole all of his treasure

0:19:160:19:19

and the church caught fire.

0:19:190:19:21

And today, you're those servants.

0:19:210:19:23

Your challenge is to take Willy's treasure

0:19:230:19:26

and put it in your chest, but all the goodies are colour-coded

0:19:260:19:29

and you must only take your own loot.

0:19:290:19:31

Whoever collects the most pieces wins the Year Sphere

0:19:310:19:34

but be quick about it, because the church is about to catch fire.

0:19:340:19:37

And your time starts now.

0:19:370:19:39

HORN BLARES

0:19:390:19:41

So, here we go, then, with Yuckaroo.

0:19:410:19:43

And they're all very quick off the mark,

0:19:430:19:45

relieving William of his treasure there.

0:19:450:19:47

I have to say, we've got some thieves here

0:19:470:19:49

and then some! They've made a flying start,

0:19:490:19:51

-haven't they, Rattus?

-They certainly have,

0:19:510:19:53

-Dave Lamb.

-They've all got two already!

0:19:530:19:56

This is extraordinary! Quite remarkable!

0:19:560:19:59

Look at them now, all starting to work away delicately again.

0:19:590:20:02

Lily working on a crown, I think.

0:20:020:20:04

That's got to be worth a bob or two.

0:20:040:20:06

Not the sort of thing I usually rush to compliment,

0:20:060:20:08

but there really is some

0:20:080:20:09

excellent thieving going on here.

0:20:090:20:11

And for me, at the moment, Lily just has the edge,

0:20:110:20:14

but can she maintain it?

0:20:140:20:16

What our players don't know is that William's body was so bloated

0:20:160:20:20

and rotten that it actually...

0:20:200:20:21

EXPLOSION

0:20:210:20:23

Oh! Yuckaroony!

0:20:230:20:24

I probably don't need to finish that sentence, do I?

0:20:240:20:28

Didn't get anyone. That's a bit of a shame.

0:20:280:20:30

We were hoping everyone

0:20:300:20:31

would get covered in guts,

0:20:310:20:32

but it seems to have missed them all.

0:20:320:20:34

What's the point of exploding guts if

0:20:340:20:36

it doesn't hit somebody right in the eye?

0:20:360:20:38

Yeah, quite right. I wish they'd put their

0:20:380:20:40

heads a little bit closer

0:20:400:20:41

at that point, but never mind.

0:20:410:20:43

Lily is stacking up the loot here.

0:20:430:20:44

Isaac, meanwhile, is dealing with some very,

0:20:440:20:47

very knotted ropes there, look at those.

0:20:470:20:50

'30 seconds remaining.'

0:20:500:20:52

That's very tough rope, isn't it, that, Rattus?

0:20:520:20:54

We've specially selected that.

0:20:540:20:56

It's actual alpine mountaineering rope, that, tough as you like.

0:20:560:20:59

He might not get through that is what I'm saying, Rattus.

0:20:590:21:02

And this delay is costing him,

0:21:020:21:03

because Lily's storming ahead.

0:21:030:21:05

Oh, look out!

0:21:050:21:06

Everything's on fire!

0:21:060:21:07

The fire has started!

0:21:070:21:09

It's getting very smoky.

0:21:090:21:11

That's going to make it hard for

0:21:110:21:12

them to see what they're stealing!

0:21:120:21:14

You have to say, Lily's main

0:21:140:21:16

competition is Charlie now,

0:21:160:21:17

but he needs three more in about three seconds!

0:21:170:21:19

I don't think he's going to do it.

0:21:190:21:20

I don't think an octopus could do it!

0:21:200:21:22

'Time's up.'

0:21:220:21:23

It's a win for Lily and she'll bag herself another Year Sphere.

0:21:230:21:26

Top thieving.

0:21:260:21:27

Out of the Time Sewer like nobody's business.

0:21:290:21:32

Well played, indeed.

0:21:320:21:34

That was very close. How was that for you, Charlie?

0:21:340:21:36

At least the guts didn't go on me.

0:21:360:21:38

That was fine, yeah.

0:21:380:21:40

That was the main highlight. Isaac?

0:21:400:21:41

It was OK, but I got quite annoyed when I couldn't unscrew the mug.

0:21:410:21:45

Yes. Well, again, it was very close between Lily and Charlie,

0:21:450:21:48

but I can tell you the winner with nine...

0:21:480:21:50

was Lily. Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:21:500:21:54

Very close.

0:21:540:21:55

CHOIR SINGS

0:21:550:21:58

It's time for the final round, so it's over to the Gory Grid

0:21:590:22:02

one last time to find out what we've got.

0:22:020:22:04

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:22:050:22:09

No quirky quiz in our final round, it's straight to our big

0:22:090:22:12

All Play Tudor endgame, and it's a very silly one.

0:22:120:22:16

Get down that Time Sewer.

0:22:160:22:18

-Bye, Dave.

-Bye!

0:22:180:22:20

See you later.

0:22:200:22:21

See you later.

0:22:210:22:22

It's time to play...

0:22:250:22:27

Henry VIII is starving.

0:22:300:22:32

He hasn't eaten for literally minutes.

0:22:320:22:34

Your challenge, to feed him as many pies as possible.

0:22:340:22:37

The person who gets the most pies in their Henry's mouth

0:22:370:22:40

within the time limit wins the Year Sphere.

0:22:400:22:42

Are you ready? It's pie time!

0:22:420:22:45

HORN BLARES

0:22:450:22:46

So, here we go, then, with Who Ate All the Pies?

0:22:460:22:49

And they're all off... And, well!

0:22:490:22:50

What an amazing start, Rattus, everyone's got a pie in!

0:22:500:22:54

Oh, Isaac's down.

0:22:540:22:55

I think he must've slipped in some gravy!

0:22:550:22:57

But he's straight back up again.

0:22:570:22:59

Oh, and I tell you what, it hasn't affected his throwing arm!

0:22:590:23:02

Oh, that's a lovely pivot from Lily.

0:23:020:23:04

Bang.

0:23:040:23:06

Voom!

0:23:060:23:07

Pietastic!

0:23:070:23:08

Oh! Hey! Eat that!

0:23:100:23:12

Superb action right from the very start.

0:23:120:23:15

HENRY BURPS

0:23:150:23:16

Terrific work from the pieman, lovely hat, super beard.

0:23:160:23:18

Have you ever worn a hat, Rattus?

0:23:180:23:20

I'm wearing one now, Dave.

0:23:200:23:22

Well, it's one of those invisible ones

0:23:220:23:24

but it's terrific.

0:23:240:23:26

Isaac doing very nicely here, very nicely indeed.

0:23:260:23:28

Lily, lovely, low trajectory.

0:23:280:23:30

There's the pieman, look at him going.

0:23:300:23:32

He really does know how to deliver a pie, which is

0:23:320:23:34

good in his line of work.

0:23:340:23:36

I pie with my little pie

0:23:370:23:40

something beginning with P.

0:23:400:23:42

Is it pie?

0:23:420:23:43

How did you guess?

0:23:430:23:45

Oh! Look at that flying pie!

0:23:450:23:47

That is what I call fast food,

0:23:470:23:49

and Charlie is putting up a real fight here.

0:23:490:23:52

'30 seconds remaining.'

0:23:530:23:55

30 seconds left and Isaac is maintaining

0:23:550:23:57

a strong lead.

0:23:570:23:58

He's flung seven pies into Henry VIII's mouth.

0:23:580:24:01

What a ledge.

0:24:010:24:03

So, Dave, is that why he was called Henry VIII,

0:24:030:24:06

because he ate all the pies?

0:24:060:24:07

Yes, Rattus, that's exactly right.

0:24:070:24:10

This really is an exhausting game, though.

0:24:100:24:13

Really, really is taking its toll.

0:24:130:24:15

Look how tired Lily is there.

0:24:150:24:17

Isaac getting pinged back.

0:24:170:24:19

Charlie's given it absolutely everything.

0:24:190:24:22

-Oh, Lily bravely...

-Oh!

0:24:220:24:23

That was a terrific shot!

0:24:230:24:25

'Time's up.'

0:24:250:24:26

And it's all over and look how exhausted Lily is!

0:24:260:24:29

Charlie gave her a real fight for second place

0:24:290:24:32

but they tie on five,

0:24:320:24:33

and we get the thumbs up from Isaac.

0:24:330:24:35

He doesn't know it, but he's bagged himself a Year Sphere.

0:24:350:24:39

Welcome back.

0:24:390:24:40

You really are terrifically fast out of the Time Sewer, all of you.

0:24:400:24:44

Well, that was very, very exciting.

0:24:440:24:46

So, the winner was Isaac.

0:24:460:24:48

Another Year Sphere for you, please, sir.

0:24:480:24:51

CHOIR SINGS

0:24:510:24:52

Neatly selected.

0:24:540:24:56

So, it's time to count up those Year Spheres

0:24:560:24:59

and, remember, AD dates are added,

0:24:590:25:02

and BC dates are subtracted.

0:25:020:25:04

It's the moment of truth.

0:25:040:25:06

Charlie, you have no Year Spheres.

0:25:060:25:08

That could be a clever tactic

0:25:080:25:09

because it's perfectly possible to win the game with zero.

0:25:090:25:12

Will it work?

0:25:120:25:14

We just don't know.

0:25:140:25:15

Isaac, we're going to start with you.

0:25:150:25:18

Open up that first Year Sphere for me.

0:25:180:25:20

FANFARE

0:25:210:25:22

Women got the right to vote in the UK that year,

0:25:240:25:28

so that's a very good start.

0:25:280:25:29

Let's have a look at your second one.

0:25:290:25:31

FANFARE

0:25:310:25:32

Another excellent, excellent number.

0:25:330:25:36

Queen Victoria marries

0:25:360:25:37

Prince Albert that year.

0:25:370:25:38

All-important third one, let's have a look at it.

0:25:380:25:41

FANFARE

0:25:410:25:42

Oh!

0:25:420:25:43

Three very good scores.

0:25:450:25:47

Napoleon Bonaparte was born that year.

0:25:470:25:48

So you've got 5,527.

0:25:480:25:53

Charlie, I'm afraid that means you can no longer win,

0:25:530:25:55

but Lily, you still can.

0:25:550:25:57

Let's have a look at your first Year Sphere.

0:25:570:25:59

FANFARE

0:25:590:26:00

It's not setting the world alight

0:26:010:26:02

but it's positive.

0:26:020:26:04

Hadrian's Wall began

0:26:040:26:05

to be built that year.

0:26:050:26:06

Let's have a look at the second.

0:26:060:26:08

FANFARE

0:26:080:26:09

That's more like it.

0:26:090:26:11

The death of Richard the Lionheart.

0:26:110:26:13

Let's have a look at that third one.

0:26:130:26:16

GROANING

0:26:160:26:17

55 BC, it's gone the wrong way.

0:26:170:26:20

Julius Caesar invaded Britain that year.

0:26:200:26:23

And because Charlie has nought, today's winner

0:26:230:26:26

with 5,527 points,

0:26:260:26:28

is Isaac.

0:26:280:26:30

Well done and have we got a fabulous prize for you.

0:26:300:26:35

The answer is no, we haven't.

0:26:350:26:36

Rattus has just dragged something out of the Time Sewer.

0:26:360:26:39

That's right, it's a honey-soaked delicacy from Medieval Arabia.

0:26:390:26:45

Wow!

0:26:450:26:46

Isaac, I hope you don't mind, but that look pretty nice.

0:26:460:26:49

I'm sorry, mate, there's three left.

0:26:490:26:51

Oh.

0:26:510:26:52

It's actually chunks of mellified man,

0:26:520:26:54

a 100-year-old dead person soaked in honey!

0:26:540:26:59

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:27:000:27:02

Oh, dear. Unfortunately, I've swallowed it.

0:27:020:27:04

-Isaac, there you go, congratulations.

-Thank you.

0:27:040:27:06

Take that home with you. Whatever you do, don't eat it.

0:27:060:27:09

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:27:090:27:11

Commiserations to our runners-up, Charlie and Lily,

0:27:110:27:14

who'll be heading home via what we rats call the scenic route.

0:27:140:27:19

Or what we humans call

0:27:190:27:21

the Time Sewer.

0:27:210:27:22

Bad luck. Off you go. Bye!

0:27:220:27:25

Bye!

0:27:250:27:27

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:27:340:27:35

That's it. I've been Dave Lamb.

0:27:400:27:41

And I've been a delight.

0:27:410:27:44

In your dreams, Rattus.

0:27:440:27:45

This has been Gory Games. Goodbye!

0:27:450:27:47
