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

0:00:080:00:11

# Better turn off This show ain't for you

# With Horrible Histories Gory Games

# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:200:00:22

# ..Games! #

0:00:230:00:24

Hello and welcome to Gory Games with me, Dave Lamb...

0:00:240:00:27

And me, Rattus Rattus.

0:00:270:00:29

This is the show where you get to test your knowledge of

0:00:290:00:32

horrible histories with some of the messiest games known to man.

0:00:320:00:35

But not to rat, oh, no.

0:00:350:00:37

In fact, the messiest game I know is my local log flume ride.

0:00:370:00:40

-Ha-ha-ha ha!

-Yeah, well, log flume rides are usually wet

0:00:400:00:43

but not usually that messy.

0:00:430:00:44

Not our rat log flume ride, which is from the toilet at the top

0:00:440:00:47

of a tower block. You stand on the seat,

0:00:470:00:49

jump up to pull the flush, then leap down the bowl!

0:00:490:00:52

Whoopie! Ooohh...

0:00:520:00:56

All the way down to the main sewer. Splashdown! Ha-ha!

0:00:560:00:59

Now that's messy, I can tell you.

0:00:590:01:03

HE SPITS

0:01:030:01:05

-Let's meet today's Horrible Historians!

-Hey, I'm Sonnyboy.

0:01:050:01:08

Hello, my name's Carrera.

0:01:080:01:10

Hi, I'm Aaron.

0:01:100:01:12

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

0:01:120:01:16

Go to the CBBC website to get it.

0:01:160:01:18

Lovely. Welcome, all of you.

0:01:180:01:21

-Dave?

-Yes?

-Dave?

-What?

-Dave?

-What?!

-Dave!

-WHAT?!

0:01:210:01:25

-I thought we could play a classic playground game.

-Oh?

0:01:250:01:28

-With a Middle Ages twist.

-Oh.

-I'm sure everybody's heard of Hopscotch.

0:01:280:01:32

Well, we're going to play it as though it were in a genuine

0:01:320:01:34

Middle Ages street.

0:01:340:01:36

All our contestants have to do is avoid the animal guts,

0:01:360:01:39

horse droppings and human droppings... Ha-ha-ha!

0:01:390:01:42

in a game I'm calling "Plopscotch." Ha-ha-ha!

0:01:420:01:46

And just to make it really tricky,

0:01:460:01:48

-let's make it night-time.

-Oh, great(!)

0:01:480:01:51

-Right then, get hopping in three, two...

-No!

0:01:510:01:54

No, no way. And don't worry, you won't have to do that.

0:01:540:01:56

Ooh, mind the...

0:01:560:01:59

-CONTESTANTS LAUGH

-Too late.

0:01:590:02:02

Right, Sonnyboy, Carrera, Aaron, you are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:02:020:02:07

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date and at the end of

0:02:070:02:10

the show your Year Sphere dates will be added up with AD dates being

0:02:100:02:13

added to your total and BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:02:130:02:18

-So, if these were your Year Spheres, your total would be, Rattus?

-734.

0:02:180:02:23

That's actually really close. Do you want to try again?

0:02:230:02:25

-13?

-OK, I give up.

0:02:250:02:28

It's 735 and, at the end of the show, the person with the highest

0:02:280:02:32

year score will win a unique historical prize.

0:02:320:02:35

Ooh, that's right. It's something I've picked out myself

0:02:350:02:37

and to say it's amazing would be an understatement.

0:02:370:02:40

-To say it's amazing would be a lie, wouldn't it?

-Oi!

0:02:400:02:44

Right, let's get cracking.

0:02:440:02:45

And to find out who this round's about, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:02:450:02:49

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:02:490:02:51

Four questions, then, on the Terrible Tudors.

0:02:510:02:53

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

0:02:530:02:57

And your four Tudor Topics are...

0:02:570:02:58

Sonnyboy, it's your turn to pick first in this round.

0:03:040:03:06

What do you fancy?

0:03:060:03:07

-Erm... Witches.

-Witches.

0:03:070:03:09

Hope you're feeling brainy.

0:03:090:03:11

Here's my question...

0:03:110:03:13

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:03:280:03:31

OK, the boys agreeing on A.

0:03:310:03:33

Carrera thinks B. Let's find out.

0:03:330:03:36

Hope you got it right!

0:03:360:03:37

The answer is...

0:03:370:03:39

It's horrible but it's true.

0:03:420:03:45

So no points, actually, in that first question.

0:03:450:03:48

Carrera, it's your turn to choose a topic. What do you fancy?

0:03:480:03:51

-Mean Queens.

-Mean Queens.

0:03:510:03:53

My daughter, Queen Mary, was a Catholic and married the

0:03:530:03:56

King of Spain. He didn't like her much and went home to Spain.

0:03:560:03:59

But what did she send him to try and encourage him to come back?

0:03:590:04:03

Let's see your answers now, please. There we go.

0:04:130:04:16

Well, Aaron's gone for A. Carrera's gone for A.

0:04:160:04:18

Sonnyboy on his own with C. Let's see what the answer is.

0:04:180:04:22

The answer is...

0:04:220:04:23

To encourage him to come back, she sent him pies. Well, would have

0:04:230:04:26

-worked with me. Ha-ha!

-Probably would've worked on me, to be honest.

0:04:260:04:29

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:04:290:04:31

Getting a bit peckish, actually.

0:04:310:04:33

So, Sonnyboy, well done. You're in the lead with one point.

0:04:330:04:36

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

-I'll pick Superstitions.

0:04:360:04:41

-Superstitions.

-What did we Tudors do to predict our future luck?

0:04:410:04:45

A - jump over a moss-covered rock, B - jump over a lit candle,

0:04:450:04:50

or C - jump over a sleeping cat?

0:04:500:04:53

Oh, I know the answer. I know the answer!

0:04:530:04:56

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:04:560:04:59

OK, everybody going for B.

0:04:590:05:00

Are they all right or all wrong?

0:05:000:05:03

The answer's B - jump over a lit candle. If the candle went out,

0:05:030:05:07

it was bad luck. A little bit like marrying me.

0:05:070:05:09

HE CACKLES

0:05:090:05:12

Laugh, or I will chop your head off.

0:05:120:05:13

AWKWARD LAUGHTER

0:05:130:05:15

OK, one question left in this round.

0:05:150:05:17

Sonnyboy in the lead with two, the others on one,

0:05:170:05:20

but everyone can still win this round.

0:05:200:05:22

The final question is on laws and it is a prop question.

0:05:220:05:25

Prop question! Prop question!

0:05:250:05:29

That is a prop and it's a woolly hat.

0:05:290:05:31

Queen Elizabeth passed a law about woolly hats, but what was it?

0:05:310:05:35

Was it A - that all woolly hats were banned?

0:05:350:05:38

Was it B - everyone had to wear a woolly hat on Sundays?

0:05:380:05:41

Or was it C - that all bald men had to wear woolly hats?

0:05:410:05:46

What do you think, is that A, B or C?

0:05:460:05:48

Let's see your answer is now, please.

0:05:480:05:50

Interesting. Carrera and Aaron

0:05:510:05:53

agreeing on B.

0:05:530:05:54

Sonnyboy on his own with C.

0:05:540:05:56

The answer is, in fact, B.

0:05:560:05:59

Everyone had to wear a woolly hat on Sundays.

0:05:590:06:01

It was to boost sales in the English wool trade.

0:06:010:06:04

And to make everyone look more than a bit stupid.

0:06:040:06:07

That was, sadly, a by-product of it.

0:06:070:06:10

OK, well, that's the end of the round.

0:06:100:06:12

And look at that, we have a complete tie. Everyone has two points,

0:06:120:06:16

so we are going to a tie-breaker buzzer question.

0:06:160:06:19

Fingers on those buzzers, please.

0:06:190:06:21

Beginning with the letter E,

0:06:220:06:24

what is the name of King Henry VIII's daughter,

0:06:240:06:26

who reigned for 44 years?

0:06:260:06:27

FART BUZZER NOISE Carrera?

0:06:270:06:29

-Elizabeth?

-Elizabeth is absolutely right. Well done, Carrera,

0:06:290:06:33

you have won the first Year Sphere!

0:06:330:06:35

Yay!

0:06:350:06:36

Yay! Time to choose your Year Sphere from our Trolley Wally.

0:06:360:06:40

Oh, push, push, push, push, push...

0:06:400:06:43

PUSH!

0:06:430:06:44

There you go, come on, Carrera, any one you like.

0:06:440:06:47

But be warned, one of those spheres may contain a Stone Age date,

0:06:470:06:51

-which could be worth a few million minus points.

-That one?

0:06:510:06:54

-Are you sure?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:06:540:06:57

Push, push, push, push, push, push... BYE!

0:06:570:07:00

Winning the quiz means that Carrera is automatically through to play

0:07:000:07:03

the Tudors game, but will she be alone or will everyone get to play?

0:07:030:07:07

Let's find out.

0:07:070:07:08

It's an All Play Brainy Game,

0:07:120:07:14

so that means it's off down the Time Sewer with the lot of you.

0:07:140:07:17

Lead them on!

0:07:170:07:19

Queen Elizabeth's portrait artists knew that to keep their heads

0:07:260:07:29

they had to keep the Queen happy, which meant making her look far

0:07:290:07:32

more glamorous in her portraits than she really was.

0:07:320:07:35

In fact, they had to copy portraits of her from her younger days.

0:07:350:07:38

It's time to play...

0:07:380:07:40

Your challenge is to assemble two perfect

0:07:420:07:45

copies of an Elizabeth portrait.

0:07:450:07:47

The only problem is your two puzzles

0:07:470:07:48

are made out of differently shaped pieces.

0:07:480:07:50

Complete your puzzles quicker than

0:07:500:07:52

the other Horrible Historians to win the Year Sphere.

0:07:520:07:55

In three, two, one... CLAXON SOUNDS

0:07:550:07:57

So, here we go, then, with puzzling portraits and let's hope that,

0:07:570:08:02

at the end of this, we don't find that one of the pieces is missing.

0:08:020:08:05

Oh, Aaron having a look at the main portrait there.

0:08:050:08:08

Well, that seems to me to be a very, very good plan indeed.

0:08:080:08:11

I'm surprised, Dave, that they don't glance around more

0:08:110:08:13

often to see what the finished puzzle should look like.

0:08:130:08:17

And Sonnyboy, look how well he's doing already!

0:08:170:08:19

-This is extraordinary.

-He's doing two at once, Dave.

0:08:190:08:22

This is an excellent piece of tactic, I think.

0:08:220:08:24

This is the strategy you need.

0:08:240:08:26

He's doing this like a machine.

0:08:260:08:28

I've never seen it done this fast, Rattus.

0:08:280:08:30

It's extraordinary. Look at him,

0:08:300:08:32

he's nearly finished over there.

0:08:320:08:34

And they say men can't multitask,

0:08:340:08:36

well, that's utter rubbish, isn't it?

0:08:360:08:38

That is proved to be utter, utter rubbish today.

0:08:380:08:40

He's got one piece left!

0:08:400:08:42

Oh, he's done it!

0:08:420:08:43

That is extraordinary!

0:08:430:08:45

He may well bounce up and down

0:08:450:08:47

because he has just done two

0:08:470:08:48

puzzles extremely quickly, let's just leave it at that.

0:08:480:08:52

Welcome back, everybody! Sonnyboy, pick up your first Year Sphere.

0:08:520:08:56

Well played.

0:08:560:08:57

That was excellent puzzle work. It was really impressive.

0:09:000:09:03

Very good. You did both at once.

0:09:030:09:04

-You thought that would be the best tactic, did you?

-Yeah.

0:09:040:09:07

-Aaron, did you find that difficult? Easy?

-It was pretty difficult.

0:09:070:09:10

-Were you just concentrating on one?

-Concentrating on one because I

0:09:100:09:13

-forgot about the other one.

-Oh, did you?

-Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:09:130:09:16

It's easily done. Easily done. How did you find that, Carrera?

0:09:160:09:18

Hard because you had to work out if pieces fit, like,

0:09:180:09:21

-and it was really complicated.

-Yeah.

0:09:210:09:23

You know, that portrait shows just one of the 3,000 dresses

0:09:230:09:28

Elizabeth I is believed to have owned.

0:09:280:09:30

But I'm willing to bet she still used to say,

0:09:300:09:32

"I can't possibly go out tonight. I've got nothing to wear"

0:09:320:09:35

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:09:350:09:37

-Hang about. Isn't that a bit rude to women, Dave?

-You are so right.

0:09:370:09:40

Sorry! Moving swiftly on, on to Round Two, in fact.

0:09:400:09:43

And to find out who's up next, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:09:430:09:46

It's the Gorgeous Georgians.

0:09:460:09:49

Four questions again. Here are your all-important Georgian topics.

0:09:490:09:53

So, Carrera, it's your turn to pick first in this round.

0:09:570:10:02

-Police?

-Police.

0:10:020:10:03

1749 saw the first organised police force in London,

0:10:030:10:07

but what were they known as?

0:10:070:10:09

A - the Bow Street Bobbies?

0:10:090:10:11

B - the Bow Street Runners?

0:10:110:10:13

Or C - the Bow Street Terries?

0:10:130:10:16

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:10:220:10:24

OK, the boys agreeing on B.

0:10:240:10:26

Carrera on her own with A. What's the answer?

0:10:260:10:28

The answer is B, the Bow Street Runners. Ha-ha!

0:10:280:10:32

So, the boys there both scoring their first points of the round.

0:10:320:10:35

-Aaron, your turn to pick a topic.

-I'll pick Gloves.

-Gloves it is.

0:10:370:10:42

Oh, this is exciting. The question is...

0:10:420:10:46

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:11:010:11:03

OK, Sonnyboy and Carrera agreeing on B. Aaron on his own with A.

0:11:050:11:09

-What's the answer?

-I can tell you, the answer is...

0:11:090:11:12

They were given 192 pairs of gloves a year. Yes, that's right.

0:11:140:11:18

No-one got that one right, I'm afraid,

0:11:180:11:20

so the scores remain, Sonnyboy - one, Aaron - one,

0:11:200:11:23

and Carrera yet to score.

0:11:230:11:24

Two questions left in this round, though, so no need to panic.

0:11:240:11:28

-Sonnyboy, it's your turn to pick a topic.

-Um... Fans.

-Fans!

0:11:280:11:31

That is a prop question.

0:11:310:11:33

And here is a fan, as you can see.

0:11:360:11:39

Georgian ladies used fan fluttering as a sort of messaging system,

0:11:390:11:44

but what did THIS gesture mean?

0:11:440:11:46

Was it A - I am tired? Was it B - I am sorry?

0:11:510:11:54

Or was it C - I need the toilet?

0:11:540:11:57

-CONTESTANTS LAUGH

-Oooh...

0:11:570:11:59

Yeah, all right, Rattus.

0:11:590:12:01

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:12:010:12:03

OK, Carrera and Aaron agreeing on C.

0:12:030:12:05

Sonnyboy with B.

0:12:050:12:07

The answer is...

0:12:070:12:08

I am so sorry, it's B.

0:12:090:12:11

And so you should be.

0:12:110:12:14

Well done, Sonnyboy.

0:12:140:12:15

Excellent stuff. OK, one more question left in this round.

0:12:150:12:18

Sonnyboy, if you were to get it right,

0:12:180:12:21

you'd have won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:12:210:12:23

The one remaining question in this round is on Nelson and here it is.

0:12:230:12:27

How was Lord Nelson's body brought home

0:12:270:12:29

after his death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805?

0:12:290:12:33

A - in an ornamental coffin?

0:12:330:12:36

B - in a casket of tea?

0:12:360:12:37

Or C - in a barrel of brandy?

0:12:370:12:40

You won't believe the answer to this one. Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:12:400:12:44

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:12:440:12:46

OK, Sonnyboy with A, Carrera

0:12:480:12:50

and Aaron agreeing again on B.

0:12:500:12:52

The answer is C,

0:12:520:12:53

in a barrel of brandy, so his body wouldn't rot too quickly.

0:12:530:12:58

So, nobody got that one right.

0:12:580:13:01

OK, that's it. That's the end of that round.

0:13:010:13:03

And it means that, Sonnyboy,

0:13:030:13:04

you have won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:13:040:13:06

Collect it, please.

0:13:060:13:08

So, Sonnyboy, as quiz winner,

0:13:080:13:10

you're also through to play the Georgian Game.

0:13:100:13:13

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

0:13:130:13:16

Let's find out.

0:13:160:13:18

It's an All Play Silly Game. Ha-ha!

0:13:200:13:24

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

0:13:240:13:26

Ho, ho, headfirst. Feet first. Headfirst.

0:13:280:13:33

THEY COUGH

0:13:350:13:38

In Georgian times, anyone who was anyone wore a wig

0:13:380:13:42

and your wig was home to more bugs than the average rat.

0:13:420:13:45

-I'll take that as a compliment.

-Do what you like.

0:13:450:13:47

It's time to play...

0:13:470:13:48

Loads of fleas and lice will be flinging

0:13:500:13:53

themselves from a giant Georgian wig.

0:13:530:13:55

You have to catch as many bugs in your wig as possible.

0:13:550:13:58

The player who catches the most wins the Year Sphere.

0:13:580:14:01

Let the flea fling begin.

0:14:010:14:02

CLAXON SOUNDS

0:14:020:14:04

So, here we go then with a flea fling

0:14:040:14:06

and there's a lot of fleas out, but none so far on the wigs.

0:14:060:14:10

Oh, it's so wrong it's right.

0:14:100:14:13

I have to agree with you there, Rattus, but still no-one's scored.

0:14:130:14:16

Oh, there's the first flea,

0:14:160:14:17

landed by Aaron, who literally nearly threw himself off as feet.

0:14:170:14:21

Look at that! He's getting... He's actually over!

0:14:210:14:23

-Oh! Ha-ha!

-He's over! He threw his head at that.

0:14:230:14:26

If he could have taken his head off and thrown it, literally,

0:14:260:14:29

-he would have done so.

-I think he would, Dave.

0:14:290:14:31

Who's going to win this? It's anybody's guess.

0:14:310:14:33

And you can guess by playing along at home using the Gory Games app.

0:14:330:14:36

Oh, flea on the knee.

0:14:360:14:38

I think you have to catch them on your wig,

0:14:380:14:40

-so that flea is not scoring.

-That's another one for Sonnyboy.

0:14:400:14:44

Holding on to his wig there to support it.

0:14:440:14:47

Carrera's doing the same. CLOCK STRIKES

0:14:470:14:49

30 seconds remaining.

0:14:490:14:50

Look at Aaron, he's just freestyling.

0:14:500:14:53

He is throwing himself into this

0:14:530:14:54

game with extraordinary vigour

0:14:540:14:56

and his peripheral vision is being

0:14:560:14:58

obscured there by a flea.

0:14:580:14:59

It really is extraordinary how many

0:14:590:15:01

fleas are in this wig.

0:15:010:15:02

I mean, I know it's not life-size, the wig, neither are the fleas...

0:15:020:15:05

-CLAXON SOUNDS

-Stop there!

0:15:050:15:07

I think it's all over and, for me,

0:15:070:15:09

Aaron has won that, but only just.

0:15:090:15:11

Welcome back, everyone. Back behind those podiums.

0:15:140:15:16

Help yourself to a Year Sphere!

0:15:160:15:19

You know, I find my lice are so hard to count.

0:15:190:15:22

By the time you've counted them, their eggs have all hatched

0:15:220:15:25

and you've got to start all over again!

0:15:250:15:27

And it's really hard to count the ones on your bottom!

0:15:270:15:30

Oh, dear. On with the show.

0:15:300:15:32

And to find out who's up next, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:15:320:15:35

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day!

0:15:360:15:39

Here are your four Victorian topics.

0:15:390:15:42

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

0:15:460:15:50

-Um... London.

-London.

0:15:500:15:51

That is a question from my colleague, Rattus Rattus.

0:15:510:15:55

Ooh, colleague, thank you. Bit lower, please. Thank you.

0:15:550:15:58

True or false?

0:15:580:16:00

In the summer of 1858, the River Thames turned pink.

0:16:000:16:06

Mm. Interesting. And very straightforward.

0:16:060:16:09

Is that true or is that false? Let's see those answers now, please.

0:16:090:16:13

So you've all agreed on false. Are they all right or all wrong, Rattus?

0:16:130:16:17

You're all... right! It's false.

0:16:170:16:20

The River Thames turned brown

0:16:200:16:23

because all of London's sewage used to go straight into the Thames,

0:16:230:16:27

so it stank of poo! Ha! For some reason, people didn't like it.

0:16:270:16:31

I don't understand that myself.

0:16:310:16:32

-OK, Sonnyboy, your turn to pick a topic.

-Gadgets.

-Gadgets.

0:16:340:16:39

That is a prop question!

0:16:390:16:41

And there is the prop. True or false?

0:16:430:16:45

This is a genuine Victorian

0:16:450:16:47

contraption for gentlemen to keep their moustache clean whilst eating.

0:16:470:16:52

Here's a clue - it's either true or false.

0:16:520:16:55

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:16:550:16:58

OK, unanimous agreement again on true

0:16:580:17:00

and I can tell you that it is true!

0:17:000:17:03

Absolutely true.

0:17:030:17:05

-Well done, everyone.

-I love food getting stuck on my facial hair.

0:17:050:17:09

Leave it to rot there for a few more days and it's even tastier. Ha-ha!

0:17:090:17:13

-Yes. Carrera, it's your turn to pick a topic.

-Factories.

-Factories.

0:17:130:17:18

True or false? In Victorian factories, no singing was allowed.

0:17:190:17:24

So, true or false? In Victorian factories, no singing was allowed.

0:17:240:17:30

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:17:300:17:32

OK, well, we are in total agreement once again.

0:17:320:17:35

Everybody going for true.

0:17:350:17:37

-Are they all right or all wrong?

-It's true. No singing was allowed.

0:17:370:17:41

Far too much fun.

0:17:410:17:43

Not that you could hear it above the din of the machines, anyway.

0:17:430:17:46

They were very loud.

0:17:460:17:47

-Can anyone else hear that ringing?

-No, no. Just you.

0:17:470:17:50

So, it's three points each. It's a maximum score for the round so far.

0:17:500:17:55

That is extraordinary. We have one question left -

0:17:550:17:58

-that question is on doors.

-True or false?

0:17:580:18:01

Some poor Victorians stole front doors from houses

0:18:010:18:04

-so they could sleep on them.

-OK, true or false?

0:18:040:18:08

Some poor Victorians stole front doors from houses

0:18:080:18:12

so that they could sleep on them.

0:18:120:18:14

And they are totally agreeing again with false. This is extraordinary.

0:18:140:18:19

They've agreed on everything in this round. Are they all right this time?

0:18:190:18:23

It's true.

0:18:230:18:24

Poor people living in slums slept on the doors rather than the cold,

0:18:240:18:28

damp ground. I slept on one last night - it's dead uncomfortable.

0:18:280:18:31

Probably should've taken that doorknob off first.

0:18:310:18:34

Maybe filled in the letterbox as well.

0:18:340:18:35

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:18:350:18:37

OK, well, that means that we have a three-way tie again at the end

0:18:370:18:40

of that round and that means that we have a buzzer question.

0:18:400:18:43

Fingers on buzzers.

0:18:430:18:45

Beginning with the letter A,

0:18:450:18:47

what was the name of Queen Victoria's husband? Prince...

0:18:470:18:50

-SCARY VOICE BUZZER Sonnyboy?

-Is it Arthur?

0:18:500:18:53

Oh, you're very close. Unlucky, unlucky, Sonnyboy. It isn't Arthur.

0:18:530:18:56

FART BUZZER

0:18:560:18:57

-Carrera?

-Albert?

0:18:570:18:59

Albert is absolutely right! Well done, Carrera.

0:18:590:19:02

You've won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:19:020:19:05

OK, Carrera, you're through to play the Victorian game,

0:19:050:19:08

but will it be All Play, or will it be Single Play? Let's find out.

0:19:080:19:12

It's a Single Player Brainy Game!

0:19:150:19:18

So, get yourself down that Time Sewer.

0:19:180:19:20

Isambard Kingdom Brunel was a

0:19:250:19:27

brilliant engineer, a visionary designer

0:19:270:19:29

and a lousy children's entertainer.

0:19:290:19:31

While showing off magic tricks to his kids one day,

0:19:310:19:34

he accidentally got a large coin lodged in his throat

0:19:340:19:37

and he eventually managed to dislodge the coin using

0:19:370:19:39

a clever device.

0:19:390:19:41

It's time to play...

0:19:410:19:42

Your challenge is to work out which cog goes where.

0:19:450:19:47

Once they're all in the right place, you can turn the wheel and flip

0:19:470:19:50

Brunel upside down to dislodge the coin and win yourself a Year Sphere.

0:19:500:19:54

But be quick! You're against the clock, which is starting to tick.

0:19:540:19:58

Now! CLAXON SOUNDS

0:19:580:20:00

So, here goes Carrera attempting Barmy Brunel.

0:20:000:20:03

Well, that's not going to work.

0:20:030:20:05

I can't believe it, she's left it there, but clearly that is

0:20:050:20:07

not in contact with the driving cog and neither's that one.

0:20:070:20:12

All cogs standing completely

0:20:120:20:13

isolated from each other at the moment, Rattus.

0:20:130:20:16

That's not going to get Barmy Brunel tipped up, is it?

0:20:160:20:18

Dave, I have to say, if Carrera does manage to do this,

0:20:180:20:21

can I keep the coin?

0:20:210:20:23

I'll put it up for auction on the rat auction site Flea-Bay! Ha-ha!

0:20:230:20:26

Flea-bay! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Yeah, all right.

0:20:260:20:31

Here goes a piece that's finally fitting. That's lovely.

0:20:310:20:33

She's got one that actually tessellates with

0:20:330:20:36

one of the other shapes, which is very, very nice.

0:20:360:20:39

Now, this isn't going to work in my book.

0:20:390:20:41

Dave, could you please give the viewers and me

0:20:410:20:43

a definition of the word "tessellate"?

0:20:430:20:45

Shapes that fit together nicely, Rattus, would do for you, I think.

0:20:450:20:49

Doesn't even work!

0:20:490:20:51

-Don't think that works.

-I think you're absolutely right, Carrera.

0:20:510:20:54

Well done and well done for replacing it.

0:20:540:20:56

Now, this looks interesting.

0:20:560:20:57

Is that going to fit in with the driving cog? Yes, it is!

0:20:570:21:00

-Yes, it's there!

-She's learning and you've got

0:21:000:21:03

to admire that in Carrera. She is learning as she goes on.

0:21:030:21:06

That bit is still floating independently from the others.

0:21:060:21:10

That's nice, that's nice! That bit of the mechanism...!

0:21:100:21:13

-Oh, she's taken it off! She's taken it off!

-Oh, but she's taken it away!

0:21:130:21:17

Oh, dear, Oh, dear! Well, I'm not sure that's

0:21:170:21:19

-going to work quite as well! SCARY VOICE:

-30 seconds remaining!

0:21:190:21:21

CLOCK STRIKES We've only got 30 seconds left

0:21:210:21:23

and she's taken off bits that were in the right place!

0:21:230:21:26

-Oh, let's hope she doesn't take that first...

-OH!

-Oh, no!

0:21:260:21:28

-She's taken it off!

-She's having a bit of a panic here. Oh!

0:21:280:21:31

That's the other one that was fit in!

0:21:310:21:33

She's taken off all the bits that were in the right place!

0:21:330:21:36

Oh, she's going to be kicking herself when she sees this back!

0:21:360:21:39

Poor old Barmy Brunel lying there with a coin lodged in his throat.

0:21:390:21:42

He might want to ask someone to give him the Heimlich manoeuvre

0:21:420:21:45

because he's not going to get the coin out this way,

0:21:450:21:47

I can tell you that for nothing, Rattus.

0:21:470:21:49

She's desperately now just trying... BUZZER SOUNDS

0:21:490:21:51

..everything and she's run out of time. Well, bad luck, Carrera.

0:21:510:21:54

It wasn't to be this time.

0:21:540:21:56

Oh, she's out! That was extraordinary. Well done.

0:21:570:22:00

You were keen to get back. Bad luck, Carrera, bad luck.

0:22:000:22:03

What happened there?

0:22:030:22:04

You had to make sure that one of them fit into the big one,

0:22:040:22:08

and it was really hard and it didn't turn round properly.

0:22:080:22:11

At one point you had two of them in exactly the right position,

0:22:110:22:14

but you just didn't quite finish it off. So no Year Sphere, I'm afraid.

0:22:140:22:17

Time for the final round.

0:22:170:22:18

Over to the Gory Grid one last time to find out what we've got.

0:22:180:22:22

-It's the Rotten Romans!

-There's no Quirky Quiz in this final round -

0:22:220:22:26

it's straight to our big All Play Roman Endgame!

0:22:260:22:29

So, everyone, get down that Time Sewer!

0:22:290:22:32

CONTESTANTS CHEER

0:22:340:22:36

Roman emperor Vitellius was mostly

0:22:420:22:44

famous for eating like an absolute pig.

0:22:440:22:46

In fact, he liked four feasts a day. He even invented his own dish -

0:22:460:22:51

a pie made out of the brains of pheasants

0:22:510:22:53

and the tongues of flamingos.

0:22:530:22:55

It's time to play...

0:22:550:22:56

Horrible Historians, your challenge is simple - to stuff Vitellius' gob.

0:22:580:23:03

Collect the pies and fling them into his mouth.

0:23:030:23:05

The person who gets the most pies in their Vitellius' gob

0:23:050:23:08

within the time limit wins the Year Sphere. But be warned,

0:23:080:23:12

halfway through, a servant is going to spill a cauldron of garum

0:23:120:23:15

sauce made out of rotten fish guts.

0:23:150:23:18

-Yum!

-You would say that.

0:23:180:23:20

So things might get a bit slippy. Ready? Steady? Fling those pies!

0:23:200:23:24

CLAXON SOUNDS

0:23:240:23:25

So, here we go then with Foul Feasts.

0:23:250:23:27

They have to fling pies, fish and grapes into the open mouth

0:23:270:23:30

and two have gone in already.

0:23:300:23:32

Well, what a start that was.

0:23:320:23:34

There's a fish, thrown like a dart! It's in! Tremendous effort!

0:23:340:23:38

Tremendous effort!

0:23:380:23:39

Emperor Vitellius' catering supervisor Keithus Maximus working

0:23:390:23:42

overtime at the end there. He really is a terrific catering

0:23:420:23:45

supervisor, Keithus Maximus. We're very lucky to have him.

0:23:450:23:47

He's one of the finest Roman catering supervisors working today!

0:23:470:23:50

Look at that pie thrown by Sonnyboy!

0:23:500:23:52

He's in the lead but that one fell short. Now grapes! More grapes!

0:23:520:23:55

Oh, there's a...grapes going in there! Lovely shot from Aaron!

0:23:550:23:59

Oh, what a fling that was from

0:23:590:24:01

Sonnyboy! A tremendous fling!

0:24:010:24:03

There's a flat fish! Not so lucky there from Carrera.

0:24:030:24:06

How will Sonnyboy do with his flat fish?

0:24:060:24:08

Oh, winged him on the side of the mouth! That must have smarted!

0:24:080:24:11

Oh, lovely! Aaron draws level with Sonnyboy! Three apiece!

0:24:110:24:14

There's a big bunch of grapes for both of them.

0:24:140:24:17

Everyone going with grapes!

0:24:170:24:18

It's grape afternoon, all afternoon, here at the Foul Feast.

0:24:180:24:22

It's a good job Keithus Maximus' dad owns a vineyard!

0:24:220:24:25

CLOCK STRIKES

0:24:250:24:26

Maximus Maximus, big in grapes, big in life! That's not relevant now!

0:24:260:24:29

Oh! There's the garum sauce! There's the garum sauce!

0:24:290:24:32

And I have to say, it is going to get much,

0:24:320:24:34

much more slippery out there now! Someone's looking at a wipe-out!

0:24:340:24:39

Let's see who's going to slip in the

0:24:390:24:41

-garum sauce first.

-It's Sonnyboy!

0:24:410:24:43

Sonnyboy's been down! Yeah,

0:24:430:24:44

you're absolutely right, Rattus!

0:24:440:24:46

There he goes again! Disappearing from view almost completely!

0:24:460:24:49

Sonnyboy's hit the deck a few times

0:24:500:24:52

there. Oh, they're all at it now!

0:24:520:24:53

-CLAXON SOUNDS SCARY VOICE:

-Time's up!

0:24:530:24:56

It's all over here!

0:24:560:24:57

Sonnyboy and Aaron have tied it and Keithus Maximus is absolutely

0:24:570:25:01

furious because he's got to clear it up!

0:25:010:25:04

Welcome back. You've got yourself cleaned up, I'm glad to see. Lovely.

0:25:040:25:08

Well, that was very exciting. With three each for Sonnyboy and Aaron.

0:25:080:25:13

So, Sonnyboy, if you'd like to pick another Year Sphere first.

0:25:130:25:16

There we go. And, Aaron, if you'd like to pick one too.

0:25:180:25:20

That is all the Year Spheres awarded.

0:25:200:25:23

Did you know? When Emperor Vitellius was

0:25:230:25:26

so full at a feast that he couldn't eat any more,

0:25:260:25:28

he would tickle his throat with a feather so he'd be sick

0:25:280:25:30

and could start eating all over again.

0:25:300:25:32

I made myself sick with a long feather once. Yeah.

0:25:320:25:35

-It was still attached to the chicken I was chasing.

-Yes.

0:25:350:25:40

It's time to add up your Year Sphere totals.

0:25:400:25:42

Sonnyboy, let's start with you. Open up your first one for me, please.

0:25:420:25:46

There we go, 1086 AD. That's the Doomsday Book, written that year.

0:25:460:25:50

There goes the second one. 1815 AD, the Battle of Waterloo.

64 AD,

0:25:540:25:56

that was the year that Rome burnt down,

0:25:560:25:58

but what that does mean is that you've avoided the BC totals

0:25:580:26:01

and you've ended up with

0:26:010:26:04

a score of 2,965,

0:26:040:26:05

which is excellent.

0:26:050:26:07

Carrera, can you match that?

0:26:070:26:08

Let's have a look at your first one.

0:26:080:26:10

Oh, dear me! 2532 BC.

0:26:100:26:13

The great Egyptian Sphinx was finished about that time.

0:26:130:26:16

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:26:160:26:18

-Oh, dear. 2.5 million BC.

-Oh...

-Oh, no!

0:26:180:26:23

Stone age man started to use tools around about then.

0:26:230:26:26

Carrera, that gives you

0:26:260:26:30

a total of minus 2,502,532

0:26:300:26:33

Oh, dear me. Right, Aaron, let's see if you can win this.

0:26:330:26:37

What have you got in your first sphere?

0:26:370:26:39

Oh, dear! 8,000 BC. Woolly mammoths

0:26:390:26:42

died out about that time,

0:26:420:26:44

as did your chances of winning, I'm afraid.

0:26:440:26:46

Let's have a look at your second one.

0:26:460:26:49

Oh, it's 1042 AD.

0:26:490:26:51

Edward the Confessor became King of England, but it's not enough!

0:26:510:26:54

Aaron, that gives you a total of minus 6,958.

0:26:540:26:59

Today's champion, with a score of

0:26:590:27:01

-2,965 points, is Sonnyboy!

-Yay!

-Yay!

0:27:010:27:07

Who will be taking home our star prize

0:27:070:27:10

and there really is nothing like a proper trophy,

0:27:100:27:12

and this is nothing like a proper trophy.

0:27:120:27:15

Because, once again,

0:27:150:27:16

it's some historical tat chosen by my furry friend here.

0:27:160:27:19

-What is it, Rattus?

-Are you a First World War soldier?

-No.

0:27:190:27:22

-Getting cold in the freezing trenches this winter?

-No.

0:27:220:27:25

-Then what you need is a nice tub of whale fat!

-Nooo...!

0:27:250:27:30

Soldiers used to have to rub it all over their bodies for insulation.

0:27:300:27:34

-Ha-ha! Congratulations, Sonnyboy!

-Sonnyboy, I'm so sorry.

0:27:340:27:37

-There you go. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:27:370:27:40

I'm sorry it's so...well, whaley.

0:27:400:27:43

It just remains for me to say thanks to Sonnyboy, Carrera

0:27:430:27:45

-and Aaron and no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

-Any time.
