KNOCK ON DOOR

0:00:020:00:03

-Who's there?

-Mr Forgetful.

0:00:030:00:06

Ah, it's you.

0:00:060:00:08

No, you're supposed to say, "Mr Forgetful who?"

0:00:080:00:12

-Right.

-It's a knock, knock joke. Come on.

0:00:120:00:15

Who's there?

0:00:160:00:17

Mr Forgetful.

0:00:170:00:18

Mr Forgetful who?

0:00:180:00:20

No, I can't remember either!

0:00:200:00:23

Come on, show's about to start.

0:00:230:00:26

Well I suppose it can only get better.

0:00:260:00:28

# If mummies, rats and fleas ain't your thing

0:00:300:00:34

# And you don't like the sound of an exploding king

0:00:340:00:36

# If you're easily scared and don't laugh at poo

0:00:360:00:39

# Better turn off This show ain't for you

0:00:390:00:42

# Still watching? Then let's test your brains

0:00:420:00:46

# With Horrible Histories Gory Games

0:00:460:00:49

# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:490:00:52

# Games! #

0:00:520:00:53

Hello and welcome to Gory Games

0:00:530:00:55

with me, Dave Lamb.

0:00:550:00:57

And me, Rattus Rattus.

0:00:570:00:59

Rattus, you've got a little bit of something stuck on your snout there.

0:00:590:01:02

-Stuck pretty firmly is it?

-Nnng.

0:01:020:01:04

I bet you'd quite like me to take that off, wouldn't you?

0:01:040:01:06

-Nnng-nng-nng.

-Bad luck, fella.

-Oi!

0:01:060:01:09

Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:01:090:01:11

Hi, I'm Aaron and I'm from Leeds.

0:01:110:01:13

Hello, Aaron.

0:01:130:01:14

Hi, I'm Faye and I'm from Telford.

0:01:140:01:17

Hello, Faye.

0:01:170:01:18

Hi, I'm Daniel and I'm from Essex.

0:01:180:01:20

Hello, Daniel.

0:01:200:01:22

Welcome, everyone. I've got a very good feeling about today's show.

0:01:240:01:27

Oi.

0:01:270:01:28

All right then, Rattus, I'm only joking. Come on, let's get that off.

0:01:280:01:32

-Aargh!

-There we go.

0:01:320:01:33

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

0:01:330:01:37

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

0:01:370:01:41

You lot are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:410:01:44

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

0:01:440:01:46

will win a prize like no other.

0:01:460:01:49

And not in a good way, I'm afraid,

0:01:490:01:51

as the prize has been chosen by Rattus. So let's get cracking.

0:01:510:01:55

And to find out what the first round is about,

0:01:550:01:57

it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:01:570:01:59

It's the Nasty Knights.

0:02:010:02:04

So, four questions on the Nasty Knights coming up now.

0:02:040:02:08

The person who gets the most right,

0:02:080:02:10

wins the first Year Sphere.

0:02:100:02:12

And your four knight's topics are....

0:02:120:02:15

So, Daniel, you get to pick first this round.

0:02:190:02:22

Which of those takes your fancy?

0:02:220:02:24

Food.

0:02:240:02:25

-That is a prop question.

-Yeah.

0:02:250:02:28

-Oh, he's chuffed to bits.

-Prop question, prop question.

0:02:280:02:31

And, as always, the prop is in one of the cupboards.

0:02:310:02:34

And today, Rattus, I have come prepared.

0:02:340:02:39

What's that for?

0:02:390:02:40

Well, let's just say experience has taught me

0:02:400:02:43

that some anti-booby trap measures might well be in order.

0:02:430:02:47

Unlucky, Rattus.

0:02:470:02:50

Wow.

0:02:500:02:52

Jeff, you can get rid of that thanks very much.

0:02:520:02:55

Oh.

0:02:550:02:57

Sorry, delayed action.

0:02:570:02:59

Must need oiling.

0:02:590:03:01

Here's the prop. Well, that was well worth the effort wasn't it(?)

0:03:010:03:04

Grains of wheat, covered in poo.

0:03:040:03:07

True or false?

0:03:070:03:09

In the Middle Ages when knights were off on crusades

0:03:090:03:11

and ran out of food, they sometimes got

0:03:110:03:13

so desperate that they ate grains of wheat found in human poo.

0:03:130:03:18

So what do you think, true or false?

0:03:180:03:22

Daniel and Aaron agreeing on true. Faye has gone with false.

0:03:220:03:25

The answer is...

0:03:250:03:27

false.

0:03:270:03:28

Well, of course it is, that would be absolutely disgusting.

0:03:280:03:31

But they did occasionally eat grains of wheat found in animal poo.

0:03:310:03:36

And why not?

0:03:360:03:37

Well, congratulations, Faye. Well done.

0:03:370:03:40

It's your turn to pick a category. What would you like?

0:03:400:03:43

Erm, cheating.

0:03:430:03:46

True or false? Some knights used to cheat at tournaments.

0:03:460:03:51

One method was to screw themselves to their saddle

0:03:510:03:53

so they couldn't be knocked off their horse.

0:03:530:03:56

What do you think? Is that true or is that false?

0:03:560:04:00

Everybody's gone for true.

0:04:000:04:02

Are they all right or all wrong?

0:04:020:04:03

It's true.

0:04:030:04:06

I would never do that. Well, not since I was caught doing it anyway.

0:04:060:04:10

An eyeball, a brain and a skull.

0:04:120:04:14

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

0:04:140:04:16

Battle, please.

0:04:160:04:18

True or false?

0:04:180:04:19

If you captured a knight in battle, it was best to kill him immediately.

0:04:190:04:24

Gosh, is that true or is that false?

0:04:240:04:26

Aaron and Faye think it's false.

0:04:280:04:30

Daniel thinks it's true.

0:04:300:04:31

What's the answer?

0:04:310:04:33

It's false.

0:04:330:04:34

We knights were far too valuable alive as you could sell us

0:04:340:04:37

back to our families for a small fortune.

0:04:370:04:39

Though after I forgot our anniversary I'm not sure

0:04:390:04:42

if my wife would actually pay up.

0:04:420:04:45

So, Aaron and Faye, that's a point apiece.

0:04:450:04:47

And the final question is on Sieges.

0:04:470:04:50

Is this true or false?

0:04:500:04:53

When knights were laying siege to a castle,

0:04:590:05:01

they would sometimes catapult in dead horses. Is that true or false?

0:05:010:05:06

Let's see your answers.

0:05:060:05:08

Daniel and Faye going with true. Aaron has gone with false.

0:05:080:05:12

What's the answer please?

0:05:120:05:13

It's true.

0:05:130:05:15

I've heard of it raining cats and dogs, but horses?

0:05:150:05:19

Well, absolutely.

0:05:190:05:20

And not only could it kill the unlucky person it landed on,

0:05:200:05:23

the rotting corpse of a horse could also spread a lot of disease, yeah.

0:05:230:05:28

Daniel and Faye, that's another point each.

0:05:280:05:31

Faye, you've got a full house, four out of four,

0:05:310:05:34

which means it's time for you to choose your Year Sphere

0:05:340:05:36

and it's time for me to say, all hail the potty pyramid.

0:05:360:05:41

CHORAL VOICES: # Ah-ah, ah, ah, ah-ah-ah! #

0:05:430:05:46

Faye, help yourself.

0:05:470:05:48

-Hey, Dave.

-What?

-I've got a potty mouth.

-I know you have.

0:05:480:05:52

Choose carefully though, Faye, because while AD dates will be added

0:05:520:05:55

to your total, BC dates will be subtracted from it.

0:05:550:05:59

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

0:05:590:06:02

So winning the Knights' Quiz means that Faye is automatically

0:06:020:06:05

through to play the Knights' Game.

0:06:050:06:07

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

0:06:070:06:10

Let's find out shall we?

0:06:100:06:11

It's a single player game.

0:06:150:06:17

It's time to play...

0:06:170:06:18

Which is a Stupid Death game.

0:06:200:06:23

THUNDER CRASHES

0:06:230:06:24

So get down that sewer, Faye.

0:06:260:06:27

Oh, phew, it stinks down here.

0:06:290:06:31

Over to you, Death.

0:06:330:06:35

Warning, this story contains poo, death and,

0:06:350:06:39

well, poo death. It's very good.

0:06:390:06:41

So, one night in 1291, some crusaders raided a Saracen camp,

0:06:410:06:47

but one of them tripped on a tent rope, fell into a toilet hole

0:06:470:06:50

and drowned in poo.

0:06:500:06:52

As stupid deaths go, that's my number two.

0:06:530:06:56

Number two. Brilliant.

0:06:560:06:59

Anyway, your challenge is to get from one side of the Saracen

0:06:590:07:02

camp to the other and rescue your friend from the poo pit

0:07:020:07:05

without waking the sleeping Saracen.

0:07:050:07:08

Touch any tent rope and the bells will ring.

0:07:080:07:11

Do that three times - it's game over.

0:07:110:07:13

Your time starts...now.

0:07:150:07:18

FOGHORN BLARES

0:07:180:07:19

So here goes Faye, playing Knight Fall.

0:07:190:07:23

Well, now, Rattus, she appeared to touch several ropes there

0:07:230:07:27

but no bells rang. Lucky.

0:07:270:07:29

She's through that first set of ropes very quickly indeed, Rattus.

0:07:290:07:32

She certainly is.

0:07:320:07:34

Wow, look at that. The Saracen not stirring as yet.

0:07:340:07:37

She's picking a very neat course through...

0:07:370:07:40

BELLS RING

0:07:400:07:41

Oh, that's a bell going off. He's certainly stirring.

0:07:410:07:44

She doesn't need to do that too many more times.

0:07:440:07:47

Oh, look at the drama there, Rattus.

0:07:470:07:49

Looking over to see if the Saracen is waking up.

0:07:490:07:52

BELLS RING

0:07:520:07:53

Oh, and that's a second bell ring but it doesn't matter now

0:07:530:07:55

because she's through.

0:07:550:07:57

Now she's got to pull the knight out of the cesspit of poo.

0:07:570:08:00

And she's really yanking him.

0:08:000:08:02

His leg is bending into an appalling shape there.

0:08:020:08:04

I think he must have broken that as he fell into the cesspit.

0:08:040:08:07

Now she's got him. She's got him by the midriff

0:08:070:08:09

and she's just yanking him out of the poo.

0:08:090:08:12

She's doing this in record-breaking time.

0:08:120:08:16

He's out and she's lifting him

0:08:160:08:18

above her head like some sort of weightlifting challenge.

0:08:180:08:23

Let's see that again in slow motion.

0:08:240:08:26

She reaches down, pulls up,

0:08:260:08:31

and then that's the clean and jerk,

0:08:310:08:34

right above her head.

0:08:340:08:36

That's a clean lift.

0:08:360:08:37

Congratulations, Faye. Welcome back.

0:08:390:08:41

Superb. Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:08:410:08:44

Good celebration of course.

0:08:440:08:46

Careful it's not a stone age stinker.

0:08:460:08:49

Don't let him influence you. You choose which ever one you want.

0:08:490:08:53

So Round Two and to find out what's up next, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:08:530:08:57

It's the Vicious Vikings.

0:08:580:09:00

Yes.

0:09:000:09:01

Yes, Faye's very happy with Vikings.

0:09:010:09:03

Four questions again and here are your all-important Viking topics.

0:09:030:09:07

And, Faye, it's your turn to pick first.

0:09:120:09:15

Erm, can I have Myths please?

0:09:150:09:17

That is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:09:170:09:20

According to Viking legend, why did the god Odin only have one eye?

0:09:200:09:26

Was it A - because he lost the other in a fight with a raven,

0:09:260:09:30

B - he swapped it for a drink from the well of wisdom or

0:09:300:09:33

C - he gave it to a blind giant?

0:09:330:09:35

Let's see your answers now please.

0:09:420:09:44

Daniel and Aaron agreeing on A.

0:09:440:09:46

Faye has gone for B.

0:09:460:09:48

Rattus, what is the answer?

0:09:480:09:50

Oh, Faye,

0:09:500:09:51

you're right, it's B.

0:09:510:09:53

He swapped it for a drink from the well of wisdom,

0:09:540:09:57

after which he became wise and knew everything.

0:09:570:10:01

Like it's not worth swapping your eye

0:10:010:10:03

for drink from the well of wisdom.

0:10:030:10:06

Well done, Faye. Aaron, your turn to choose a topic.

0:10:060:10:09

Rulers, please.

0:10:090:10:10

Which one of these was not a real Viking Ruler?

0:10:120:10:15

Was it A - Olaf the Greenfingered,

0:10:150:10:17

B - Harald Bluetooth

0:10:170:10:19

or C - Ivar the Boneless?

0:10:190:10:22

Show me now please.

0:10:260:10:28

Everybody's gone for B.

0:10:280:10:31

Are they all right or are they all wrong?

0:10:310:10:33

The answer is A - Olaf the Greenfingered.

0:10:330:10:38

Although I do know an Olaf who picks his nose a lot.

0:10:380:10:41

I know a rat that does that too.

0:10:410:10:43

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:10:430:10:44

No points there whatsoever.

0:10:440:10:46

So it's Daniel's turn to choose a topic. What'll you have?

0:10:460:10:49

Word-play, please.

0:10:490:10:52

Let's see if you know this one.

0:10:520:10:54

Your answers now, please.

0:11:100:11:12

Faye and Aaron have gone for B.

0:11:120:11:14

Daniel has gone for C.

0:11:140:11:16

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:11:160:11:18

Let me put you out of your misery.

0:11:180:11:20

The answer is...

0:11:200:11:21

A - a horse of the sea is a ship.

0:11:210:11:25

I've got a Viking word-play for you, Dave.

0:11:250:11:28

What's a donkey of the TV studio, rhymes with rave?

0:11:280:11:33

-HE SIGHS

-Let's move on, shall we?

0:11:330:11:37

No points awarded there. The final category is Laws.

0:11:370:11:40

And this is the question.

0:11:400:11:42

If you lost a fight and did not want to be killed,

0:11:420:11:45

what did you have to do?

0:11:450:11:46

A - swim in the freezing sea,

0:11:460:11:48

B - hang on to the greased tail of a cow

0:11:480:11:51

or C - run through the town shouting, "I'm an idiot!"

0:11:510:11:54

Oh, that's a tricky one. What do you think - is it A, B or C?

0:11:540:11:59

Everyone thinks that's B.

0:12:000:12:02

What's the answer?

0:12:020:12:03

The answer is B, you had to hang on to the greased tail of a cow

0:12:030:12:07

whilst it charged round a Viking hall.

0:12:070:12:09

Succeed and you could keep the cow and your life.

0:12:090:12:13

And if you're watching, Simon Cowell,

0:12:130:12:16

that's the kind of talent show I'd like to see.

0:12:160:12:19

Don't give him ideas, Rattus. Excellent, points all round.

0:12:190:12:23

And looking at that, we can see there's only one winner. It's Faye.

0:12:230:12:27

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:12:270:12:29

Do you know Year Spheres are actually rolled by ancient Egyptian beetles

0:12:290:12:33

out of camels' dung then sprayed gold?

0:12:330:12:37

-They're not, are they?

-No.

-No.

0:12:370:12:39

So, Faye, as the winner of the Viking Quiz,

0:12:390:12:42

you're through to play the Viking Game.

0:12:420:12:44

But will you be alone or will the others get to play too?

0:12:440:12:48

Let's find out, shall we?

0:12:480:12:49

It's an All Play Silly Game.

0:12:520:12:55

Get down that Time Sewer.

0:12:550:12:58

Well done, Faye.

0:12:580:13:00

After a hard week's looting and pillaging,

0:13:010:13:04

Vikings love nothing more than to relax on a Saturday and have a wash.

0:13:040:13:08

They even had tiny spoons to clean the wax from their ears,

0:13:080:13:12

Which is why we're playing...

0:13:120:13:13

Your challenge is to clean out a Viking ear,

0:13:160:13:19

carry the wobbly wax over the unstable bridge on your Viking

0:13:190:13:22

ear spoon and flick it in your bowl.

0:13:220:13:25

The person who gets the most earwax from ear to bowl

0:13:250:13:28

within the time limit wins the Year Sphere.

0:13:280:13:30

So, spoons at the ready as your time starts...now.

0:13:300:13:33

FOGHORN BLARES

0:13:330:13:34

And they're off. All three of them

0:13:340:13:37

trying to remove earwax with their decorative Viking ear spoons.

0:13:370:13:40

Oh, look at the wax pouring out of Faye's ear there.

0:13:420:13:45

Oh, and she's dropped a piece already.

0:13:450:13:47

Here's Aaron.

0:13:470:13:48

He's across very nicely there.

0:13:480:13:50

Nimble.

0:13:500:13:51

And, oh, Daniel, lovely, lovely.

0:13:510:13:53

Took the see-saw bridge well there, so did Faye.

0:13:530:13:56

Faye scores. So does Daniel. It's one apiece.

0:13:560:13:59

There is still everything to play for here, Rattus.

0:13:590:14:03

You know what? All this earwax is making me feel hungry.

0:14:030:14:06

HE GAGS

0:14:060:14:07

Another score there for Aaron. Nice. And here comes Daniel.

0:14:080:14:12

Oh, he's missed it.

0:14:120:14:13

And I suppose we ought to point out to people at home

0:14:130:14:15

that you should never put a spoon into your ear.

0:14:150:14:19

Or, for that matter, into a Viking's ear.

0:14:190:14:22

No, certainly not.

0:14:220:14:24

Faye scores a second.

0:14:240:14:26

But this could be a third for Aaron. It is.

0:14:270:14:30

Wow, do you know? Aaron really looks like he's done this before.

0:14:300:14:33

Yes, and... Well, where on earth would he have done this before?

0:14:330:14:36

I can't imagine. Good question.

0:14:360:14:39

So it's two for Daniel

0:14:390:14:41

and Faye's got a third.

0:14:410:14:42

Oh, and look at Aaron keeping half an eye on the other

0:14:420:14:45

competitors scores there as he bags a fourth.

0:14:450:14:47

And he hurries quickly back for more.

0:14:470:14:50

Here comes Faye.

0:14:500:14:51

30 seconds remaining.

0:14:510:14:53

Neatly over that bridge.

0:14:530:14:55

Oh, but she's missed the pot.

0:14:550:14:57

Disaster.

0:14:570:14:58

Daniel, a study of concentration.

0:14:580:15:00

Lovely stuff.

0:15:000:15:01

Aaron, another beautiful lump of wax.

0:15:010:15:04

He's got a two-wax-ball lead here.

0:15:040:15:07

That may well prove to be un-passable.

0:15:070:15:09

Another one there from Faye.

0:15:100:15:12

But Aaron's going to match that.

0:15:120:15:15

And Daniel gets himself up to a very respectable tied second.

0:15:150:15:19

But this is Aaron's for me.

0:15:190:15:21

-SIREN

-Time's up.

0:15:210:15:22

It's all over and Aaron has bagged himself a Year Sphere.

0:15:220:15:26

Welcome back, everybody. Well done.

0:15:270:15:30

That was incredibly close.

0:15:300:15:32

In joint second place, with four pieces of earwax,

0:15:320:15:38

Faye and Daniel.

0:15:380:15:39

The winner, with six pieces, Aaron. Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:15:390:15:43

We'll find out if that's AD or BC at the end of the show.

0:15:480:15:52

Right, on to Round Three.

0:15:520:15:54

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

0:15:540:15:57

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:15:590:16:02

So four questions then on the Measly Middle Ages coming up.

0:16:020:16:06

Your four topics are...

0:16:060:16:08

And, Aaron, it is your turn to lead us off.

0:16:120:16:15

Erm, Punishments, please.

0:16:150:16:18

True or false? William the Conqueror banned executions.

0:16:180:16:22

What do you think - is that true or is that false?

0:16:220:16:25

Show me now, please.

0:16:250:16:26

Faye and Daniel think it's true.

0:16:270:16:29

Aaron thinks it's false.

0:16:290:16:30

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:16:300:16:32

It's true. For a short time, William the Conqueror banned executions.

0:16:320:16:37

Wow, what a nice man.

0:16:370:16:39

Instead, he had people's eyes gouged out.

0:16:390:16:42

Wow, what a horrible man.

0:16:420:16:44

He was a one.

0:16:440:16:47

Daniel and Faye, that's a point each.

0:16:470:16:49

And, Daniel, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:16:490:16:52

Children, please.

0:16:520:16:53

True or false?

0:16:530:16:55

In Scotland and England in the Middle Ages, when a child

0:16:550:16:58

was christened, their family used to rub spit on their face.

0:16:580:17:02

Eurgh.

0:17:020:17:04

Could that possibly be true?

0:17:040:17:06

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:17:060:17:08

Everybody's gone for false.

0:17:080:17:09

Are they all right or are they all wrong? Let's find out.

0:17:090:17:12

It's true.

0:17:120:17:14

Saliva was rubbed into the ears and the nose to ward off evil.

0:17:140:17:19

Sounds a bit silly to me.

0:17:210:17:23

Well, if they did that to a loved one,

0:17:230:17:25

imagine what they did to people they didn't like.

0:17:250:17:27

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:17:270:17:28

So, no points there and, Faye, it's your turn to pick.

0:17:280:17:32

Cures, please.

0:17:320:17:33

And that is a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:17:330:17:35

And it's an unpleasant question. True or false?

0:17:350:17:39

One Middle Ages cure for the black death involved

0:17:390:17:43

killing all the town's rats.

0:17:430:17:46

Is that true or false?

0:17:490:17:50

Show me now, please.

0:17:500:17:51

Everybody has gone for false.

0:17:510:17:53

Rattus, what's the answer?

0:17:530:17:55

It is false, yeah.

0:17:550:17:56

But one cure did involve killing all the town's cats,

0:17:560:18:00

which sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

0:18:000:18:03

-Rattus!

-Just saying, just saying.

0:18:030:18:06

In fact it was us rats, or at least our fleas who were spreading

0:18:060:18:10

the disease, but nobody had figured that out back then.

0:18:100:18:13

Yes, but we've all worked it out now. Everyone gets a point.

0:18:130:18:17

There's one question left in this round. You're all still in it.

0:18:170:18:21

That question is on Superstitions, and this is what it is.

0:18:210:18:25

Is this true or false?

0:18:250:18:28

So, in the Middle Ages

0:18:370:18:38

some people believed there was a species of humans who grew

0:18:380:18:41

old super quickly and died when they were just seven years old. Is that true or false?

0:18:410:18:45

Let's have a look.

0:18:450:18:47

Well, a disagreement.

0:18:470:18:48

Daniel and Faye thought it was true

0:18:480:18:51

but Aaron thinks it's false.

0:18:510:18:53

What's the answer?

0:18:530:18:54

It's...

0:18:540:18:55

true.

0:18:550:18:56

That's another point for Daniel and another point for Faye.

0:18:560:19:00

So, Aaron, just for now you are history.

0:19:000:19:03

Faye and Daniel, we're in a tie break situation.

0:19:030:19:06

Beginning with the letter D,

0:19:070:19:08

name the room in a castle in which prisoners were held.

0:19:080:19:11

-Dungeon!

-Daniel.

-Dungeon.

0:19:110:19:13

Dungeon is absolutely right. Well done, Daniel.

0:19:130:19:16

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:19:160:19:18

Excellent. Everybody has a Year Sphere.

0:19:200:19:22

And well done, Daniel, you've won the Middle Ages quiz,

0:19:220:19:25

so that means you're through to play the Middle Ages Game.

0:19:250:19:27

But will you be on your own or will the others get to come along too?

0:19:270:19:31

Let's find out.

0:19:310:19:33

It's a Single Player Silly Game.

0:19:350:19:38

So, Daniel, off down the Time Sewer with you on your own.

0:19:380:19:41

Have you ever wondered what would happen

0:19:490:19:51

if you crossed a load of pigs with a piano?

0:19:510:19:54

No? Me neither, but we're about to find out anyway as we play...

0:19:540:19:58

Back in the 1400s, France's King Louis XI received a not very

0:20:000:20:04

musical instrument consisting of several pigs and a keyboard.

0:20:040:20:08

Each key triggered a spike which would prick a pig.

0:20:080:20:10

SQUEAL!

0:20:100:20:11

And each pig squealed a different note.

0:20:110:20:14

Your challenge is to listen to and repeat a sequence of piggy squeals.

0:20:140:20:18

The sequence will get one squeal longer each time.

0:20:180:20:21

Correctly repeat nine squeals within the time limit

0:20:210:20:24

and you'll win a Year Sphere.

0:20:240:20:26

Let's get squealing.

0:20:260:20:28

FOGHORN BLARES

0:20:280:20:30

So, here goes Daniel with the first sequence.

0:20:300:20:33

SQUEALING

0:20:330:20:37

Can he repeat it?

0:20:370:20:38

SQUEAL!

0:20:380:20:39

Look at that,

0:20:390:20:41

he's back out of the way just in case the poo should come.

0:20:410:20:44

I tell you what, I've never seen anyone look more anxiously

0:20:440:20:47

at a pig's bottom.

0:20:470:20:49

He's already in trouble with only four squeaks to cover.

0:20:490:20:52

SQUEAL!

0:20:520:20:53

Oh, he doesn't like this. He is very aware that

0:20:530:20:56

if he gets just one note wrong those pigs will let him have it.

0:20:560:21:00

PFFFRRRRT!

0:21:000:21:01

Oh, no! Oh, dear me!

0:21:010:21:03

And that jet of liquid poo tells us it's game over for Daniel.

0:21:030:21:07

Let's see that again in slow mo.

0:21:070:21:09

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:21:100:21:12

Oh, you like that, don't you, Rattus?

0:21:120:21:15

Pig poo everywhere.

0:21:150:21:17

Welcome back, Daniel. Welcome back. How was that for you, Daniel?

0:21:170:21:22

-Oh, it's very hard.

-It was very hard.

0:21:220:21:24

Really don't like that game.

0:21:240:21:26

What is it that you don't like about it?

0:21:260:21:28

-Mmm.

-Is it the poo?

0:21:280:21:30

Probably, yes, Rattus.

0:21:300:21:31

Cos I love the poo.

0:21:310:21:33

Well, maybe you should play it.

0:21:330:21:35

They won't let me.

0:21:350:21:36

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

0:21:360:21:40

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

0:21:400:21:43

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:21:430:21:45

It's the final round which means no Quirky Quiz, instead we go

0:21:450:21:49

straight down the Time Sewer to play our big All Play Tudor Endgame.

0:21:490:21:53

Down you go.

0:21:530:21:56

-FAYE:

-I love Rattus Rattus!

0:21:560:21:58

THEY COUGH AND GAG

0:21:580:22:00

It's time to play...

0:22:000:22:03

As you may be aware, Henry VIII liked the odd pie or 20,

0:22:040:22:09

and your job is to feed His Royal Pie-ness

0:22:090:22:12

as many as possible.

0:22:120:22:14

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

0:22:140:22:16

mouth in the time limit, wins the Year Sphere.

0:22:160:22:18

Get ready. Three, two, one.

0:22:180:22:21

FOGHORN BLARES

0:22:210:22:22

And they are off and it's a slight false start there for Faye.

0:22:220:22:26

She dropped her pie.

0:22:260:22:27

Well, she's at a disadvantage but they're all safely away.

0:22:270:22:30

Here she goes. Oh, she's... And again.

0:22:300:22:32

Rattus, she pinged back there.

0:22:320:22:34

She certainly did, Dave. I'm assuming that the runway is, in fact,

0:22:340:22:37

covered in gravy from the pies.

0:22:370:22:39

Well, it might be.

0:22:390:22:40

-BURP!

-And Aaron scored. He's off the mark.

0:22:400:22:42

Daniel though not putting enough welly behind that one for me.

0:22:420:22:46

-BURP!

-But Aaron has scored another.

0:22:460:22:48

I'll tell you what, Rattus, if Henry VIII was that big,

0:22:490:22:52

how big were the other seven eighths?

0:22:520:22:55

It's a maths joke and I don't get it.

0:22:550:22:57

Yeah, tough crowd, wrong audience.

0:22:570:22:59

Ooh, and that's a close shave there for Aaron.

0:22:590:23:02

Even closer from Daniel.

0:23:020:23:04

Oh, now watch this.

0:23:040:23:05

I don't think Faye's over-arm technique is properly working here.

0:23:050:23:09

Oh, that was very, very close though.

0:23:090:23:10

-BURP!

-Oh, Aaron's got three.

0:23:100:23:13

Faye tried to bounce one in there.

0:23:130:23:15

Not sure what the ruling is on that, Rattus.

0:23:150:23:17

Luckily it's not relevant.

0:23:170:23:19

But Daniel yet to score, I think.

0:23:190:23:21

Oh, that one's fallen short, hasn't it?

0:23:210:23:23

That must have been short crust pastry.

0:23:230:23:26

LAUGHING: See what you did there. Short crust! Oh, you're funny.

0:23:260:23:30

Great stuff. A brilliant comment by me.

0:23:300:23:33

No joy for anyone that time though.

0:23:340:23:37

I think they're beginning to tire here, aren't they?

0:23:370:23:39

Feeding Henry is hard work.

0:23:390:23:41

-BURP!

-Daniel scores.

0:23:410:23:43

Lovely shot, sir. Lovely shot.

0:23:430:23:46

Faye getting pinged back.

0:23:460:23:48

30 seconds remaining.

0:23:480:23:50

30 seconds.

0:23:500:23:51

Oh, dear, some of the food's landing on the floor there.

0:23:510:23:55

Oh, the old five-second rule applies, Dave.

0:23:550:23:57

If nobody picks it up in five seconds, it's mine.

0:23:570:24:00

That's not the five-second rule.

0:24:000:24:02

Aaron is winning this by a country mile, isn't he?

0:24:020:24:05

I mean, he's just firing. I like his throwing technique.

0:24:050:24:07

I wonder where he's learned that, Rattus.

0:24:070:24:09

-BURP!

-And there's a fifth.

0:24:090:24:11

With only seconds left to play

0:24:110:24:12

there's no way he's going to be caught now.

0:24:120:24:14

There he is, the pie champion elect.

0:24:140:24:17

-SIREN

-Time's up.

0:24:170:24:19

It's all over, Faye throws down her pie. She's not happy.

0:24:190:24:22

The Pie Man nods. He knows when he's seen a good game

0:24:220:24:25

and that is what Aaron has had.

0:24:250:24:27

Welcome back, everybody.

0:24:270:24:29

Terrific pie flinging.

0:24:290:24:31

I can tell you that we had a clear winner in the game.

0:24:310:24:34

It wasn't Daniel. It wasn't Faye. It was Aaron.

0:24:340:24:37

Congratulations. Help yourself to a Year Sphere. The last one today.

0:24:370:24:41

There we go.

0:24:430:24:45

Whoa, trembling hand places it back on the podium.

0:24:450:24:49

How did you find it, Daniel?

0:24:490:24:51

Very hard, it kept on pulling me back and I was like...

0:24:510:24:53

Couldn't just do it.

0:24:530:24:55

What about you, Faye?

0:24:550:24:56

Oh, I loved it.

0:24:560:24:58

THEY LAUGH

0:24:580:25:00

Aaron, you were the king of that game.

0:25:000:25:02

What was your technique based on?

0:25:020:25:03

At home I like magic a lot

0:25:030:25:05

and I practice flicking cards so...

0:25:050:25:08

-So it was like flicking a giant card for you?

-Yeah.

0:25:080:25:11

Brilliant.

0:25:110:25:12

Now it's time to count up those Year Spheres and, remember,

0:25:120:25:15

AD dates are added and BC dates are subtracted.

0:25:150:25:20

It's the moment of truth.

0:25:200:25:22

Daniel, open up your sphere for me, please.

0:25:220:25:25

Oh, dear, Daniel.

0:25:250:25:27

It's 1213 BC.

0:25:270:25:30

The death of Pharaoh Ramses II.

0:25:300:25:33

Bad luck but you never know.

0:25:330:25:36

Faye, open up your first one for us.

0:25:360:25:38

There we go. It's a good one.

0:25:390:25:42

1381 AD. The Peasants' Revolt was that year.

0:25:420:25:45

Let's have a look at that second one.

0:25:450:25:47

Please, be good.

0:25:470:25:49

1702 AD, very good. The death of King William III.

0:25:490:25:53

The all-important third one. This could be crucial.

0:25:530:25:56

Let's have a look at it.

0:25:560:25:57

Ooooh.

0:25:570:25:58

Oh, it's bad but it's not too bad.

0:25:580:26:01

450 BC. The first set of Roman laws were written that year.

0:26:010:26:07

Faye you've ended up with

0:26:070:26:08

a total of 2633

0:26:080:26:12

and that is what Aaron has to beat.

0:26:120:26:14

So open up that first one for us, Aaron. Let's see what you've got.

0:26:140:26:17

1819 AD. A very good start.

0:26:190:26:21

The year Queen Victoria was born.

0:26:210:26:24

It's all on the turn

0:26:240:26:25

of the last sphere. What've you got?

0:26:250:26:27

Oh, it's 508 BC.

0:26:280:26:31

Democracy was invented in Athens

0:26:310:26:34

but it's left your tilt at the title in tatters. I'm afraid.

0:26:340:26:38

That means that today's winner is Faye.

0:26:380:26:41

And our winners, Faye, never go home empty-handed,

0:26:440:26:47

although most of them wish they had as all our prizes are fished

0:26:470:26:50

out of the Time Sewers by a stinking rodent.

0:26:500:26:52

But today's prize is no stinker, Faye.

0:26:520:26:55

Oh, no! In fact, today's prize is a breath of fresh air.

0:26:550:27:00

Really?

0:27:000:27:01

Yes. Lots of breaths of fresh air, in fact, because it's a pair of lungs!

0:27:010:27:05

A pair of inflated llama lungs,

0:27:060:27:08

which the Incans believed could tell the future.

0:27:080:27:12

Oh, what's that? Someone's about to be given a crummy prize?

0:27:120:27:16

Well, do you know what, Rattus? They work.

0:27:160:27:19

Faye, there you go.

0:27:190:27:21

Many apologies that it's in fact just some lungs on a bit of wood.

0:27:210:27:25

And commiserations to our runners-up Daniel and Aaron,

0:27:250:27:29

who I'm afraid are about to get flushed home down the Time Sewer.

0:27:290:27:32

Off you go then. See you. Well played.

0:27:320:27:36

If you want to play along at home next time,

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:27:430:27:45

Well, I've been your host with the most, Dave Lamb.

0:27:550:27:57

He's been your beast with the least, Rattus Rattus.

0:27:570:27:59

-Cheeky.

-I know.

0:27:590:28:01

-You've been watching Gory Games. Good bye.

-Good bye.

0:28:010:28:03
