# Horrible Histories Gory...

# ..Games! #

0:00:230:00:24

Hello, and welcome to Gory Games

0:00:240:00:26

with me, Dave Lamb.

0:00:260:00:27

And with...

0:00:270:00:29

Rattus Rattus. Rattus, are you OK?

0:00:290:00:31

Oh, Dave, I'm feeling a bit giddy.

0:00:310:00:33

I was sniffing around something really cheesy

0:00:330:00:35

and I was overcome by the fumes and nearly passed out!

0:00:350:00:39

What was it - out-of-date Brie or something?

0:00:390:00:41

No...one of your running shoes!

0:00:410:00:43

RATTUS GUFFAWS

0:00:430:00:44

Yeah, ha-ha, very funny(!)

0:00:440:00:46

Let's just meet today's Horrible Historians, shall we?

0:00:460:00:49

Hi! I'm James, and I'm from London.

0:00:510:00:53

Hello, James.

0:00:530:00:54

Hey! I'm Ash, and I'm also from London.

0:00:540:00:56

Hello, Ash!

0:00:560:00:58

Yo! It's me, Callum, and I come from Leighton Buzzard!

0:00:580:01:00

Yo, Callum!

0:01:000:01:02

Welcome, everyone.

0:01:040:01:05

And you can play along at home too, using the Gory Games app.

0:01:050:01:08

-If you haven't got it yet, check out the CBBC website.

-Right.

0:01:080:01:12

You lot are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:120:01:14

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

0:01:140:01:17

will win a historical artefact

0:01:170:01:19

that wouldn't look out of place in the British Museum.

0:01:190:01:22

Or, more precisely, in the skip out the back of the British Museum.

0:01:220:01:26

What's Round One?

0:01:260:01:28

Let's go over to the Gory Grid.

0:01:280:01:30

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day.

0:01:310:01:34

So, four questions on the Victorians coming up.

0:01:340:01:38

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

0:01:380:01:41

And your four Victorian topics are...

0:01:410:01:44

So, Callum, you get to pick first in this opening round.

0:01:510:01:53

-What would you like?

-Can I have Stuntmen, please?

0:01:530:01:56

Now, prepare yourself, Rattus,

0:01:560:01:58

because this is a question from Death!

0:01:580:02:01

True or false?

0:02:040:02:06

Bobby Leach was a famous Victorian stuntman

0:02:060:02:09

who died going over the Niagara Falls in a metal barrel.

0:02:090:02:13

Bobby Leach was a famous Victorian stuntman

0:02:140:02:17

who died going over the Niagara Falls in a metal barrel.

0:02:170:02:19

Is that true or false? Show me your answers now, please.

0:02:190:02:22

Bang! Everyone's gone for false.

0:02:230:02:26

Let's find out if they're all right or all wrong.

0:02:260:02:28

It's...

0:02:280:02:30

false!

0:02:300:02:31

He survived the barrel drop,

0:02:310:02:32

but died years later when he slipped on an orange peel,

0:02:320:02:35

broke his leg and died of gangrene!

0:02:350:02:38

What a lemon!

0:02:380:02:40

Yes, it's a shame to see a "man go" like that!

0:02:400:02:43

Mango!

0:02:430:02:45

I should have said that!

0:02:450:02:47

You're slipping! Congratulations, everybody.

0:02:470:02:49

That's a point apiece.

0:02:490:02:51

Ash, your turn to pick a topic.

0:02:510:02:53

Um, Queen Victoria, please.

0:02:530:02:55

True or false?

0:02:550:02:57

At Queen Victoria's coronation,

0:02:570:02:59

the archbishop lost the coronation ring.

0:02:590:03:02

Is that true or false?

0:03:020:03:04

Show me your answers now, please.

0:03:040:03:06

Callum and Ash agreeing with true.

0:03:070:03:10

James thinks it's false.

0:03:100:03:11

What's the answer, please?

0:03:110:03:13

It's false.

0:03:130:03:14

He didn't lose the ring, but he did place it on the wrong finger

0:03:140:03:17

and it caused Queen Victoria an awful lot of pain to get it off.

0:03:170:03:20

James, congratulations. That's an extra point to you.

0:03:200:03:23

And it is your turn to pick a topic.

0:03:230:03:25

Please may I have Gadgets?

0:03:250:03:27

And that, James, is a prop question.

0:03:280:03:30

Prop question, prop question, prop question!

0:03:300:03:33

Rattus, you've booby-trapped two of the prop cupboards, haven't you?

0:03:330:03:36

Yes, Dave.

0:03:360:03:37

-You're my friend, right?

-Yes, Dave.

0:03:370:03:39

-And you wouldn't want me to get hurt, would you?

-No, Dave.

0:03:390:03:42

So which cupboard is the prop in?

0:03:420:03:44

-The top cupboard, Dave.

-OK.

0:03:440:03:46

Thank you, Rattus. I trust you.

0:03:460:03:48

Crikey!

0:03:500:03:51

Why, Rattus?!

0:03:510:03:53

It's like an illness, Dave!

0:03:530:03:55

I'm a prankster!

0:03:550:03:57

Rattus, just tell me which cupboard it's in.

0:03:570:03:59

It's in the bottom cupboard.

0:03:590:04:01

So, clearly then, the middle cupboard.

0:04:010:04:03

Yes, here we are.

0:04:030:04:05

At last, the prop.

0:04:050:04:07

No thanks to Rattus Rattus.

0:04:070:04:09

Here's the prop. Have a good look at it.

0:04:090:04:11

True or false? This was a belt worn by Victorian hunters,

0:04:110:04:14

designed to carry dead pheasants.

0:04:140:04:17

So, you had a look - what do you think?

0:04:170:04:19

Is that true or false?

0:04:190:04:21

Everybody's gone for true,

0:04:230:04:24

and I can tell you it is true.

0:04:240:04:26

You're all right.

0:04:260:04:27

Congratulations, everybody. That's a point apiece.

0:04:270:04:31

So, with one question left in this round,

0:04:310:04:33

you're all still very much in it.

0:04:330:04:35

Here comes that final question, and it's on Alfred Nobel.

0:04:350:04:38

True or false?

0:04:400:04:41

Famous Swedish scientist Alfred Nobel

0:04:410:04:44

is today remembered for the Nobel Peace Prize,

0:04:440:04:47

but he actually invented dynamite.

0:04:470:04:49

So, what do you think? True or false?

0:04:490:04:52

Show me now, please.

0:04:520:04:54

Everybody's gone for true.

0:04:550:04:57

Are they all right or all wrong?

0:04:570:04:58

Let's find out.

0:04:580:04:59

It's true.

0:04:590:05:01

To be fair, Nobel invented dynamite for mining,

0:05:010:05:04

but it was still used for war as well.

0:05:040:05:05

So he invented the Peace Prize to make up for it.

0:05:050:05:08

Congratulations. That's a point, everybody.

0:05:080:05:10

Well done.

0:05:100:05:11

And at the end of that round, with a maximum score,

0:05:110:05:14

James is the winner of the first Year Sphere.

0:05:140:05:17

And it's time for me to say...

0:05:170:05:18

all hail the Potty Pyramid.

0:05:180:05:23

ANGELIC CHOIR

0:05:230:05:26

James, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:05:280:05:30

Pick carefully, because AD dates will be added to your score,

0:05:300:05:33

but BC dates will be subtracted from it.

0:05:330:05:36

So, winning the Victorian quiz

0:05:370:05:39

means that James is automatically through to play

0:05:390:05:42

the Victorian game.

0:05:420:05:43

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

0:05:430:05:47

Let's find out, shall we?

0:05:470:05:48

It's a Single Player Scary Game.

0:05:520:05:55

So, take a deep breath, James,

0:05:550:05:57

and get down that Time Sewer.

0:05:570:05:59

Bye!

0:06:010:06:03

During the Industrial Revolution, children had to do things

0:06:030:06:06

even more horrible than appearing on this show.

0:06:060:06:09

They'd have to work in noisy factories

0:06:090:06:11

that were so dangerous, you didn't always go home with as many fingers

0:06:110:06:14

as you'd arrived with.

0:06:140:06:16

It's time to play...

0:06:160:06:18

Your challenge is to make your way through the factory machinery,

0:06:200:06:23

find the four lost fingers,

0:06:230:06:25

scramble back through the machinery

0:06:250:06:27

and put the fingers back onto the hand.

0:06:270:06:29

Succeed within the time limit

0:06:290:06:31

and I'll "hand" you

0:06:310:06:33

another Year Sphere.

0:06:330:06:34

And your shift starts...now!

0:06:340:06:37

HOOTER BLARES

0:06:370:06:38

He starts off through the mangly-type thing.

0:06:380:06:41

Lovely duck and roll there.

0:06:410:06:44

Lovely!

0:06:440:06:45

I wonder if he's in the forces?

0:06:450:06:47

I think he could be.

0:06:470:06:48

He seemed to have rolled very nicely.

0:06:480:06:50

There's the first finger.

0:06:500:06:51

He's got to take these bars out

0:06:510:06:53

to try and release the finger.

0:06:530:06:55

He seems to be doing it extremely well.

0:06:550:06:57

Right in there, with no hesitation.

0:06:570:06:59

He's going to have that digit in no time.

0:06:590:07:02

If we hadn't had a good shot

0:07:030:07:04

of his fingers at the start,

0:07:040:07:06

I'd be checking to see

0:07:060:07:07

if he'd lost some in the past,

0:07:070:07:08

so good is he at retrieving them.

0:07:080:07:10

And now he goes through this loom.

0:07:100:07:13

There he goes.

0:07:130:07:15

Now, he's got to bring this down on a chain.

0:07:150:07:17

The key here is speed, Rattus.

0:07:170:07:19

It certainly is.

0:07:190:07:20

You've got to ratchet that chain round

0:07:200:07:22

at a heck of a lick.

0:07:220:07:23

The other way is to try and leap up

0:07:230:07:25

and knock the finger out,

0:07:250:07:26

which seems to be what James is trying to do.

0:07:260:07:29

And he's doing it successfully!

0:07:290:07:31

That's not cheating for me -

0:07:310:07:34

that is invention,

0:07:340:07:35

and the Victorians were all about invention, Rattus.

0:07:350:07:38

So I say well played. Look out! Here comes the factory owner.

0:07:380:07:41

Hurry!

0:07:410:07:42

Hurry up!

0:07:420:07:44

Hurry!

0:07:440:07:45

What a nasty man, Rattus.

0:07:450:07:47

How would you like it

0:07:470:07:48

if while you were commentating,

0:07:480:07:50

I just went, "Hurry up"?

0:07:500:07:52

"Hurry!"

0:07:520:07:54

I'll stop before I'm bitten.

0:07:540:07:56

James is onto his third finger.

0:07:560:07:58

-He's got it!

-He's very good.

0:07:580:08:00

He knows when the finger is freed enough,

0:08:000:08:02

and he just dives in and yanks it out.

0:08:020:08:05

Now in one of these sacks is the last remaining finger.

0:08:050:08:08

He's got it!

0:08:080:08:09

Will he get through the mangle with them? No.

0:08:090:08:12

He'll need to put them... Very clever.

0:08:120:08:14

He's problem-solving as he goes.

0:08:140:08:17

30 seconds remaining.

0:08:170:08:20

He got those fingers through the loom.

0:08:200:08:22

All he has to do is put the fingers on.

0:08:220:08:24

Forefinger, boom.

0:08:240:08:26

Middle finger...

0:08:260:08:27

Twang!

0:08:270:08:29

Little finger - interesting.

0:08:290:08:31

And ring finger.

0:08:310:08:32

CHEERING

0:08:320:08:34

High-five, James - you've won the game!

0:08:340:08:36

Well done, James. Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:08:360:08:39

Well done, fella. Very good work.

0:08:390:08:41

That's two Year Spheres already gathered. Excellent.

0:08:430:08:45

And we are onto Round Two.

0:08:450:08:48

To find out what's up next, it's back over to the Gory Grid.

0:08:480:08:52

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:08:530:08:56

Four questions again, and your four all-important topics are...

0:08:560:09:00

So, Ash, your turn to pick first this time.

0:09:060:09:08

Can I have Tutankhamen, please?

0:09:080:09:11

Here's what I want to know.

0:09:110:09:13

So, at what age did Tutankhamun become Pharaoh?

0:09:230:09:26

Was it...

0:09:260:09:27

Let's have those answers, please.

0:09:310:09:33

Everyone in total agreement. They've gone for B.

0:09:330:09:36

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:09:360:09:37

Well, I can tell you

0:09:370:09:39

the answer is...

0:09:390:09:40

B.

0:09:400:09:42

Tutankhamen became Pharaoh aged just nine years old.

0:09:420:09:45

Cor! A nine-year-old in charge of the country. Imagine that!

0:09:450:09:49

Yay!

0:09:490:09:51

You've all done superbly well. You've all got a point.

0:09:510:09:54

One...two...three.

0:09:540:09:55

It's your turn to pick a topic, James.

0:09:550:09:57

Um...can I have Egyptian Gods, please?

0:09:570:10:00

The Egyptian sun god was called Ra.

0:10:000:10:03

But what did the Egyptians call themselves?

0:10:030:10:05

So, what do you think?

0:10:120:10:15

Was it A, B or C?

0:10:150:10:16

They've all gone for A. Let's find out

0:10:170:10:19

if they're all right or all wrong.

0:10:190:10:22

The answer is A - the cattle of Ra.

0:10:220:10:25

Yes, we're all cows,

0:10:250:10:26

though I have fewer flies buzzing around my backside.

0:10:260:10:29

-BZZZZZZZ!

-I hope.

0:10:290:10:31

Excellent. Well, maximum points in this round so far.

0:10:340:10:37

This is very, very exciting.

0:10:370:10:40

Callum, it's your turn to pick.

0:10:400:10:41

Buildings, please.

0:10:410:10:43

In ancient Egypt,

0:10:430:10:45

what was the so-called "beautiful house"?

0:10:450:10:48

Was it A - Queen Cleopatra's beauty salon,

0:10:480:10:50

B - King Ramesses II's Golden Palace

0:10:500:10:54

or C - the place where dead bodies were turned into mummies?

0:10:540:10:58

What do you think? Is it A. B or C?

0:10:580:11:02

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:11:020:11:04

Total split!

0:11:040:11:07

All three possible answers given.

0:11:070:11:08

Let's find out who is right.

0:11:080:11:11

The answer is...

0:11:110:11:12

C.

0:11:120:11:14

It's the place where dead bodies

0:11:140:11:15

were turned into mummies.

0:11:150:11:17

-Oh, no!

-Superb work.

0:11:170:11:18

One question left in this round,

0:11:180:11:21

and it's on Cures.

0:11:210:11:22

That question is from Rattus Rattus.

0:11:220:11:25

What was the Egyptian cure for baldness?

0:11:250:11:28

Was it A - to drink blood from a dead lion,

0:11:280:11:31

B - rub crushed bat's ears and viper's oil on your head,

0:11:310:11:36

or C - swim naked in the Nile and then wash in goat's wee?

0:11:360:11:40

Thank you, Rattus.

0:11:400:11:41

So, what do you guys think?

0:11:410:11:43

Is it A, B or C?

0:11:430:11:45

They've all gone for B.

0:11:470:11:49

What's the answer, Rattus?

0:11:490:11:50

It makes it tenser and tenser, because the answer

0:11:500:11:53

is indeed B -

0:11:530:11:54

rub crushed bat's ears and viper's oil your head.

0:11:540:11:56

Crazy, of course,

0:11:560:11:57

but still worth a try, Dave.

0:11:570:11:59

I don't know what you mean.

0:11:590:12:01

How dare you!

0:12:010:12:02

That is a point apiece.

0:12:020:12:04

He has yet to get a question wrong.

0:12:040:12:07

Superb effort, James. Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:12:070:12:10

OK, James, as the winner of the Egyptian quiz,

0:12:140:12:16

you're through to play the Egyptian game.

0:12:160:12:18

But will you play on your own or will the others join in with you?

0:12:180:12:22

Let's find out.

0:12:220:12:23

It's an All Play Brainy Game.

0:12:260:12:29

Come on, everyone, get down that Time Sewer.

0:12:290:12:31

Lead them off, James.

0:12:310:12:33

See you, Rattus!

0:12:330:12:34

Laters, potatoes!

0:12:340:12:36

Laters, potatoes, indeed.

0:12:360:12:38

The average Egyptian pyramid weighs 5.4 million tonnes.

0:12:400:12:44

Fortunately, our pyramids are a lot lighter.

0:12:440:12:47

It's time to play...

0:12:470:12:48

Ten blocks. Your challenge -

0:12:510:12:52

to work out which block goes where.

0:12:520:12:54

First to finish their pyramid in the time limit

0:12:540:12:57

wins the Year Sphere.

0:12:570:12:58

So ready, steady...

0:12:580:13:00

get building!

0:13:000:13:01

HOOTER BLARES

0:13:010:13:03

And off they go.

0:13:030:13:05

Very important to get your foundations right here.

0:13:060:13:09

Foundations is everything, Dave.

0:13:090:13:12

If you get the base wrong,

0:13:120:13:13

you're stumped for the rest of the game.

0:13:130:13:15

In the past, we've given them the base layer of the pyramid,

0:13:150:13:19

but this time round, we're not doing that

0:13:190:13:22

and that is going to hamper James considerably,

0:13:220:13:25

because what he achieved there

0:13:250:13:27

is to put his first piece down upside down.

0:13:270:13:30

It is indeed upside down, Dave.

0:13:300:13:31

If you look at Ash's base,

0:13:310:13:34

you'll see what James actually needs to do

0:13:340:13:36

is flip that piece over.

0:13:360:13:37

Ash has made a flying start.

0:13:370:13:40

The base already beautifully lined up.

0:13:400:13:42

And so too Callum - look at that.

0:13:420:13:43

Callum's even started the first floor of his pyramid.

0:13:430:13:46

So it's really tight here between brown and green.

0:13:460:13:49

James, I think... Well, he's a bit of a non-starter,

0:13:490:13:51

because he's got his base layer upside down

0:13:510:13:54

and with the best will in the world,

0:13:540:13:56

you're not going to get any mummies under that.

0:13:560:13:59

So there's Callum on his second floor.

0:13:590:14:01

He's doing very well. They all are,

0:14:010:14:04

lifting these heavy pieces of stone.

0:14:040:14:06

Very strong contestants we've got.

0:14:060:14:07

Ash has done the first floor.

0:14:070:14:10

This is terrific pyramid-building.

0:14:100:14:13

I think a future career in architecture

0:14:150:14:17

beckons for Ash,

0:14:170:14:18

because she's knocked up this pyramid

0:14:180:14:20

in super-quick time.

0:14:200:14:21

Terrific work.

0:14:210:14:22

Callum doing equally well.

0:14:220:14:24

Fair play to James -

0:14:240:14:25

he's got the shape right. It's just upside down!

0:14:250:14:28

RATTUS CHUCKLES

0:14:280:14:30

I've got a cheeky little factoid here for you, Rattus.

0:14:310:14:33

Egyptian pyramid-builders

0:14:330:14:35

were paid in radishes and garlic.

0:14:350:14:36

If only the prize on offer

0:14:360:14:38

at the end of this show was as good, Rattus.

0:14:380:14:41

No, it's a billion times better.

0:14:410:14:42

As if! Whatevs!

0:14:420:14:45

Look at this.

0:14:470:14:48

Ash has finished the second floor.

0:14:480:14:50

Just two floors remaining.

0:14:500:14:52

There's another piece going on.

0:14:520:14:54

I think this is all over, Rattus. She's very, very canny.

0:14:540:14:57

Just the point required...

0:14:570:14:59

And there's the point!

0:14:590:15:01

Ash wins the game.

0:15:010:15:03

It's dance time.

0:15:030:15:05

Very good stuff.

0:15:050:15:07

Help yourself to a Year Sphere, Ash.

0:15:070:15:09

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

0:15:120:15:15

to find out what's up next.

0:15:150:15:16

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:15:190:15:21

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

0:15:210:15:26

James, your turn to lead off this time. What's it going to be?

0:15:310:15:34

Please may I have Sport?

0:15:340:15:36

Is this true or false?

0:15:360:15:39

So, in 1540 Henry VIII banned football

0:15:470:15:49

because it was injuring too many men

0:15:490:15:51

who were needed for the English army. Is that true or false?

0:15:510:15:54

Let's see your answers, please.

0:15:540:15:56

Callum and Ash have gone for false.

0:15:560:15:58

James on his own with true.

0:15:580:16:00

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:16:000:16:01

The answer is...it's...

0:16:010:16:04

true.

0:16:040:16:05

Now, football was a vicious sport in Tudor times.

0:16:050:16:09

There were no rules.

0:16:090:16:10

Congratulations, James.

0:16:100:16:12

Nine points out of nine now for you.

0:16:120:16:15

Extraordinary. Callum, your turn to choose a topic.

0:16:150:16:17

Can I have Nicknames, please?

0:16:170:16:19

True or false?

0:16:200:16:22

I like to give my close friends nicknames,

0:16:220:16:24

and gave my French friend, the Duke d'Alencon,

0:16:240:16:27

the nickname Frog.

0:16:270:16:29

So, what do you think?

0:16:290:16:31

Is that true or false?

0:16:310:16:33

Everybody's gone for true.

0:16:340:16:36

Let's find out if they're right or wrong.

0:16:360:16:38

It's true.

0:16:380:16:39

I called him Frog

0:16:390:16:41

because he looked a bit like a frog!

0:16:410:16:44

How brilliantly witty!

0:16:440:16:46

OK, that's a point to everyone.

0:16:460:16:48

Excellent stuff.

0:16:480:16:49

Ash, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:16:490:16:51

Punishments, please.

0:16:510:16:52

True or false?

0:16:520:16:55

The Tudor punishment for a man who had poisoned another man

0:16:550:16:58

was to be crushed under a stone.

0:16:580:17:01

Could that possibly be true?

0:17:010:17:03

Show me you answers now, please.

0:17:030:17:05

Everybody in total agreement.

0:17:060:17:08

They've all gone for false.

0:17:080:17:10

What's the answer, please, Your Maj?

0:17:100:17:12

It's false.

0:17:120:17:13

You would be boiled in water or lead.

0:17:130:17:15

My father, Henry VIII,

0:17:150:17:18

once had a kitchen cook boiled alive

0:17:180:17:20

just for poisoning his dinner guests.

0:17:200:17:21

Only the one cook was boiled, though, of course,

0:17:230:17:25

because, Rattus,

0:17:250:17:27

too many cooks would have spoiled the broth!

0:17:270:17:31

RATTUS SIGHS DEEPLY

0:17:340:17:35

That went very well.

0:17:350:17:37

A point for everybody.

0:17:370:17:38

Well done, well done, well done.

0:17:380:17:40

The final question is on Baths.

0:17:400:17:43

True or false?

0:17:430:17:45

I like to take four baths a year.

0:17:450:17:48

Four baths a year. Is that true or false?

0:17:480:17:51

Everyone's gone for true.

0:17:520:17:54

What's the answer, please?

0:17:540:17:55

It's true.

0:17:550:17:57

I took four baths a year.

0:17:570:17:58

It's an awful lot, I know.

0:17:580:18:00

Four more than me.

0:18:000:18:02

And don't I know it.

0:18:020:18:03

Well, stupendous scoring!

0:18:030:18:06

A point for everyone.

0:18:060:18:08

Callum and Ash, you've done brilliantly in these quizzes,

0:18:080:18:10

but James has not got a single question wrong.

0:18:100:18:13

I'm going to applaud him as he goes forward to collect his Year Sphere.

0:18:130:18:17

I think we all are. The whole studio's on its feet.

0:18:170:18:20

We've never seen anything like this before.

0:18:200:18:23

OK, James, you've won the Tudor quiz,

0:18:240:18:26

so you are through to play the Tudor game.

0:18:260:18:29

But will you be playing alone, or will the others be joining you?

0:18:290:18:32

Let's find out.

0:18:320:18:33

It's a Single Play Brainy Game.

0:18:370:18:39

So, James, you know the way by now.

0:18:390:18:41

Back down that Time Sewer.

0:18:410:18:43

-Bye!

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:18:440:18:47

William Shakespeare was a very...

0:18:500:18:52

I'll introduce this one, funny-shirted man.

0:18:520:18:55

Yes, all right then, Ma'am.

0:18:550:18:56

I was a fan of William Shakespeare.

0:18:560:18:59

I was also a fan of a good put-down,

0:18:590:19:01

and his plays are littered with them.

0:19:010:19:03

But can you tell the difference

0:19:030:19:05

between an insult invented by history's greatest playwright

0:19:050:19:08

and history's stinkiest rodent?

0:19:080:19:11

It's time for...

0:19:110:19:12

So, you have eight insults.

0:19:140:19:16

Your challenge -

0:19:160:19:18

to work out which five were actually made up by William Shakespeare.

0:19:180:19:21

Choose five insults

0:19:210:19:23

and move them to the board.

0:19:230:19:25

Then touch the Hamlet skull

0:19:250:19:27

to find out how many you've got right.

0:19:270:19:29

You can keep trying new combinations

0:19:290:19:31

until you get all five correct,

0:19:310:19:33

but you've got to be quick about it,

0:19:330:19:35

as you're against the clock

0:19:350:19:36

and your time starts...now!

0:19:360:19:38

HOOTER BLARES

0:19:380:19:40

What he's got to do here is pick out the genuine Shakespearean insults -

0:19:400:19:43

there's five of them -

0:19:430:19:45

and separate them from your three insults, Rattus.

0:19:450:19:48

Let's see what he's doing here.

0:19:480:19:50

He's gone for horseback-breaker.

0:19:500:19:52

By the way, James can't hear these sound effects -

0:19:520:19:55

they're just for you at home.

0:19:550:19:57

Bed-presser.

0:19:570:19:59

That sounds Shakespearean to me. I like that.

0:19:590:20:01

And swaggering rascal.

0:20:010:20:03

SHRIEKING

0:20:030:20:04

You have four correct.

0:20:040:20:06

So what's coming off?

0:20:060:20:08

Swaggering rascal comes off.

0:20:090:20:11

And he replaces it with billowing burp toad.

0:20:110:20:14

SHRIEKING

0:20:150:20:16

You have three correct.

0:20:160:20:18

Only three correct, so that one wasn't right.

0:20:180:20:21

Let's see what James does next.

0:20:210:20:22

Swaggering rascal's back.

0:20:220:20:25

And a new one - melodious stink whistle.

0:20:250:20:27

SHRIEKING

0:20:270:20:29

You have two correct.

0:20:290:20:30

Come on, James, don't be a bumbailey.

0:20:300:20:33

Dave, I think bumbailey

0:20:330:20:34

is probably the funniest word

0:20:340:20:36

I have ever heard in my life!

0:20:360:20:38

You did say that yesterday

0:20:380:20:40

about Jacuzzi.

0:20:400:20:41

Jacuzzi!

0:20:410:20:43

You have four correct.

0:20:430:20:45

RATTUS LAUGHS HYSTERICALLY

0:20:450:20:46

It's still got him.

0:20:480:20:49

SHRIEKING

0:20:510:20:52

You have four correct.

0:20:520:20:54

Four correct now,

0:20:540:20:55

but time is running out.

0:20:550:20:56

30 seconds remaining.

0:20:560:20:58

SHRIEKING

0:20:590:21:01

You have three correct.

0:21:010:21:02

I'm not sure about James's technique here.

0:21:020:21:04

If you're moving more than one at a time,

0:21:040:21:07

you have no way of knowing whether what you've moved

0:21:070:21:09

has made an impact

0:21:090:21:11

on the game.

0:21:110:21:12

You have four correct.

0:21:120:21:13

Four correct again. He's so close.

0:21:130:21:15

SHRIEKING

0:21:150:21:17

You have three correct.

0:21:170:21:18

James getting himself into a flap here.

0:21:180:21:21

He seems to be randomly throwing insults around,

0:21:210:21:23

which is rude.

0:21:230:21:24

You have three correct.

0:21:240:21:26

Time's up!

0:21:260:21:27

Oh, bad luck, James!

0:21:270:21:29

Melodious stink whistle, billowing burp toad

0:21:290:21:31

and bulbous bird brain

0:21:310:21:33

were all wrong.

0:21:330:21:35

No Year Sphere that time, I'm afraid.

0:21:350:21:37

That was difficult, wasn't it?

0:21:370:21:39

Yeah, it was really difficult.

0:21:390:21:41

Really, really difficult.

0:21:410:21:42

It's the final round now, though,

0:21:420:21:45

so it's over to the Gory Grid one last time

0:21:450:21:47

to find out what we've got.

0:21:470:21:49

It's the Vicious Vikings.

0:21:500:21:53

No quirky quiz in our final round.

0:21:530:21:56

It's straight to our big All Play Viking Endgame

0:21:560:21:59

and it's a Scary one.

0:21:590:22:01

So, everybody, get back down that Time Sewer.

0:22:010:22:03

Here we go!

0:22:030:22:04

Take a deep breath.

0:22:040:22:06

Adios, amigos!

0:22:060:22:07

Adios, amigos.

0:22:070:22:08

The date is 793 AD

0:22:110:22:14

and all is calm

0:22:140:22:15

on the island monastery of Lindisfarne.

0:22:150:22:18

But not for long.

0:22:180:22:19

It's time to play...

0:22:190:22:21

You are defenceless monks.

0:22:230:22:25

Your only hope of surviving the Viking attack

0:22:250:22:27

is that you're not found.

0:22:270:22:29

Every time you step on a sinking, noisy wooden panel,

0:22:290:22:32

you'll be sent back to the start.

0:22:320:22:34

Reach the end of the path

0:22:340:22:36

and you're faced with two doors.

0:22:360:22:37

Behind one is freedom.

0:22:370:22:39

Behind the other IS A VIKING!

0:22:390:22:41

Find him, and you have to start all over again.

0:22:430:22:45

First person to escape wins the Year Sphere.

0:22:450:22:47

Ready...steady...

0:22:470:22:49

HOOTER BLARES

0:22:490:22:51

And they're off!

0:22:510:22:52

-PHRRRRT!

-Oh, and Ash nearly lost her footing there.

0:22:520:22:55

They've all been sent back.

0:22:550:22:56

It's just a cacophony of horrible noises, Rattus.

0:22:560:22:59

-CREAK!

-There's another one.

0:23:010:23:02

Ash and Callum both returning.

0:23:020:23:05

Not James, though. This is excellent concentration.

0:23:050:23:08

What they're being here are monks

0:23:080:23:10

trying to creep away from marauding Vikings,

0:23:100:23:14

who are intent on, well, killing them, let's be honest.

0:23:140:23:17

There's a monk in the background - a genuine monk, there.

0:23:170:23:20

We're lucky to get these three monks.

0:23:200:23:22

It was interesting negotiating with them to appear on the show,

0:23:220:23:25

because they'd all taken a vow of silence

0:23:250:23:27

and we had to guess whether they were up for it or not.

0:23:270:23:30

And I think we're seeing a lot of guesswork from our contestants too.

0:23:300:23:33

What they really need to do

0:23:330:23:35

is commit the route to memory.

0:23:350:23:36

This really is a game of concentration.

0:23:360:23:39

You have to remember where you went wrong last time.

0:23:390:23:41

-TOILET FLUSHES

-No! It was the last one.

0:23:440:23:47

You saw him looking at that floorboard there

0:23:470:23:50

as if he wanted to kill it.

0:23:500:23:51

He gave it a jolly good point, Dave.

0:23:510:23:54

Yes, and he's having another go,

0:23:540:23:55

striding very purposefully.

0:23:550:23:57

But Ash is right at the end.

0:23:570:23:58

Oh, no, she's failed at the final plank!

0:23:580:24:00

James is through.

0:24:000:24:02

And he's approaching the door.

0:24:020:24:03

AAAAAAAAAARRRRGH!

0:24:030:24:04

-Oh, that's made him jump!

-Made me jump!

0:24:040:24:07

We almost had to employ Ash's little sound effect there for James,

0:24:070:24:10

the way he reacted to that.

0:24:100:24:12

He's having another go, though.

0:24:120:24:13

But can he beat Ash and Callum to it?

0:24:130:24:16

He's going to do it.

0:24:160:24:18

He's through, and this time, there's no Viking.

0:24:180:24:20

Monk James is free.

0:24:200:24:22

Well done, fella!

0:24:220:24:24

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:24:240:24:27

Well played.

0:24:270:24:29

Callum, how did you find that one?

0:24:300:24:32

I enjoyed it a lot.

0:24:320:24:33

Good. Excellent. Ash?

0:24:330:24:34

I was literally nearly there,

0:24:340:24:36

but I missed a plank so had to go all the way back.

0:24:360:24:39

Aww!

0:24:390:24:40

James, you did it again.

0:24:400:24:42

Was that Viking scary?

0:24:420:24:43

I got really scared!

0:24:430:24:45

But luckily, I got the right door, so...

0:24:450:24:47

Tremendous work.

0:24:470:24:48

Well, now it's time to count up those Year Spheres.

0:24:480:24:51

Remember that AD dates are added

0:24:510:24:53

and BC dates are subtracted.

0:24:530:24:56

It's the moment of truth.

0:24:560:24:58

Callum.

0:24:580:24:59

I'm going to go for...nought.

0:24:590:25:03

But as you well know,

0:25:030:25:04

that could be the winning total.

0:25:040:25:07

Ash, let's see if you can go ahead of Callum.

0:25:070:25:09

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

0:25:090:25:12

Oh, it's all over, Callum.

0:25:120:25:14

It's 1348 AD.

0:25:140:25:16

The Black Death hit England that year.

0:25:160:25:19

Ash, you have taken the lead.

0:25:190:25:21

So, 1348 to beat.

0:25:210:25:25

Now we come to James.

0:25:250:25:26

Let's have a look at that first one.

0:25:260:25:29

It's a good start.

0:25:290:25:31

37 AD.

0:25:310:25:33

Caligula became Emperor of Rome that year.

0:25:330:25:36

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:25:360:25:37

Oh, no!

0:25:400:25:41

1,000,000 BC!

0:25:410:25:43

Stone Age man first came to Britain

0:25:430:25:46

round about then.

0:25:460:25:48

James, I don't think there's much coming back from 1,000,000,

0:25:480:25:51

but let's see where we end up. Let's go on a journey together.

0:25:510:25:54

Let's see that third one.

0:25:540:25:55

We're back in the positives.

0:25:550:25:57

1485 AD.

0:25:570:25:59

Richard III was killed in battle that year.

0:25:590:26:01

Let's have a look at that fourth one.

0:26:010:26:03

Oh, no!

0:26:030:26:05

Somehow it's getting worse!

0:26:060:26:07

1,500,000 BC!

0:26:070:26:10

Stone Age man first used fire

0:26:100:26:14

round about then.

0:26:140:26:16

James, let's have a look at that last one.

0:26:160:26:18

Well, it's a positive, you'll be pleased to hear.

0:26:180:26:20

1603 AD.

0:26:200:26:22

The death of Queen Elizabeth I.

0:26:220:26:24

That means, James,

0:26:240:26:25

that your overall score

0:26:250:26:27

is minus 2,496,875.

0:26:270:26:33

You got all your questions right.

0:26:330:26:35

The trouble is,

0:26:350:26:36

history is horrible.

0:26:360:26:37

You'll be leaving with absolutely nothing, I'm afraid.

0:26:370:26:40

So today's winner, with 1,348 points,

0:26:400:26:43

is Ash.

0:26:430:26:44

FANFARE

0:26:440:26:45

Which means that you win the most amazing prize

0:26:450:26:48

to be presented on any quiz show

0:26:480:26:49

on this particular channel

0:26:490:26:51

at this particular moment.

0:26:510:26:53

Yes, it's some old tat

0:26:530:26:54

that Rattus has found in the Time Sewer, unfortunately.

0:26:540:26:56

OLD TAT?!

0:26:560:26:58

It's a saint's finger,

0:26:580:27:00

which people in the Middle Ages believed could perform miracles.

0:27:000:27:03

Or at least, it MIGHT be a saint's finger.

0:27:030:27:05

A lot of religious relics were fakes.

0:27:050:27:07

Well, let's find out, shall we?

0:27:070:27:09

O, mighty finger,

0:27:090:27:11

grant us the miracle of turning this awful prize

0:27:110:27:14

into something decent.

0:27:140:27:15

Nothing. It's definitely a fake, I'm afraid.

0:27:160:27:19

-There you go, Ash.

-Thanks.

0:27:190:27:21

Just a bit of bone on a plinth. Enjoy.

0:27:210:27:23

So, well done, Ash,

0:27:230:27:24

and commiserations to our runners-up, Callum and James,

0:27:240:27:27

who unfortunately will need a miracle themselves

0:27:270:27:30

to get through this next bit

0:27:300:27:31

without contracting a horrid disease.

0:27:310:27:33

Because we're sending you home through the Time Sewers.

0:27:330:27:36

I'm so sorry. Off you go, fellas.

0:27:360:27:38

Bye!

0:27:390:27:40

If you want to play along at home next time,

0:27:430:27:45

don't forget to download the Gory Games app.

0:27:450:27:47

Oh, no!

0:27:470:27:49

RATTUS GUFFAWS

0:27:490:27:51

Well, that's it. It's goodbye from me, Dave Lamb,

0:27:570:27:59

and good riddance to him, Rattus Rattus.

0:27:590:28:02

-You know you love me really.

-I do.

0:28:020:28:04

I hope you enjoyed Gory Games.

0:28:040:28:05

Bye!
