# 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

And I'd just like to extend a very special welcome

0:00:290:00:32

to all of Dave's fans.

0:00:320:00:34

Oh, that's very sweet of you!

0:00:340:00:36

Or, to put it another way...

0:00:360:00:37

Hello, Dave's mum!

0:00:370:00:38

Hilarious. Welcome, then, to the goriest game show you will ever see.

0:00:400:00:44

Let's meet today's Horrible Historians!

0:00:440:00:47

Hi, I'm Molly.

0:00:470:00:48

Hi, I'm Georgie.

0:00:480:00:49

Hi, I'm Josh.

0:00:490:00:50

And you can play along at home, too,

0:00:500:00:53

using the brilliant Gory Games app.

0:00:530:00:55

If you haven't got it yet, go to the CBBC website.

0:00:550:01:00

Right, Molly, Georgie, Josh,

0:01:000:01:02

you are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:020:01:04

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date

0:01:040:01:07

and, at the end of the show, your Year Spheres will be added up,

0:01:070:01:09

with AD dates being added to your total

0:01:090:01:12

and BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:01:120:01:15

So, for example, if these were your Year Spheres,

0:01:150:01:18

-your total would be, Rattus...?

-Ah, no! I've actually noticed

0:01:180:01:21

a bit of a pattern to this bit of the show.

0:01:210:01:23

-Oh, yes?

-Yeah.

0:01:230:01:25

Well, last time, the total was 735.

0:01:250:01:28

The time before, it was 735.

0:01:280:01:31

And the time before that...

0:01:310:01:32

it was also 735.

0:01:320:01:34

So, I'm going to go out on a bit of a limb here,

0:01:340:01:37

and say that the total is...

0:01:370:01:38

735...

0:01:380:01:41

..thousand, 321 and a half.

0:01:420:01:45

Pff!

0:01:450:01:47

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

0:01:470:01:50

will win a unique historical prize,

0:01:500:01:52

picked out of the Time Sewer by my glamourless assistant.

0:01:520:01:55

Oh, you are going to be dead impressed!

0:01:550:01:58

Unlikely. Right, let's get cracking.

0:01:580:02:01

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

0:02:010:02:04

It's the Gorgeous Georgians!

0:02:040:02:07

Your four Georgian topics are...

0:02:070:02:09

Molly, you get to pick first this round.

0:02:140:02:16

Which topic takes your fancy?

0:02:160:02:18

Beauty Products.

0:02:180:02:19

Beauty Products.

0:02:190:02:21

The question is...

0:02:210:02:22

What do you think? A, B or C?

0:02:350:02:39

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:02:390:02:41

Look at that! Molly and Josh agreeing with C.

0:02:410:02:44

Georgie out on her own with A.

0:02:440:02:46

The answer is...

0:02:460:02:48

C - ash, coal dust and candle wax.

0:02:480:02:51

AMERICAN ACCENT: I always use ash, coal dust and candle wax,

0:02:530:02:56

because I'm worth it.

0:02:560:02:58

I don't. I was just doing a voice.

0:02:580:03:00

Right, Georgie, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:03:000:03:03

Can I have School, please?

0:03:030:03:04

School.

0:03:040:03:05

In 1793, the schoolboys at Winchester School did what?

0:03:050:03:09

A, invented a new sport,

0:03:090:03:11

B, rioted,

0:03:110:03:13

or C, pretended to be girls?

0:03:130:03:15

So, did they A, invent a new sport?

0:03:150:03:17

Did they B, riot?

0:03:170:03:20

Or did they C, pretend to be girls?

0:03:200:03:22

And you've all ended up with exactly the same answer.

0:03:230:03:26

You've all gone for B. Let's find out.

0:03:260:03:29

The answer is...

0:03:290:03:31

B, they rioted, they really rioted.

0:03:310:03:33

They even fired pistols at some of the teachers.

0:03:330:03:35

I'm pretty sure that's against the school rules!

0:03:350:03:38

I'm almost certain it is.

0:03:380:03:40

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

0:03:400:03:42

I think I might go with Aristocrats.

0:03:420:03:44

Aristocrats.

0:03:440:03:46

The Duke of Chandos had his own private what?

0:03:460:03:48

So, the Duke of Chandos had his own private what?

0:03:530:03:56

Was it A, a football team,

0:03:560:03:57

B, an orchestra,

0:03:570:03:59

or C, an army?

0:03:590:04:00

Molly and Josh are going for C.

0:04:010:04:03

Georgie thinks it's B.

0:04:030:04:05

The answer is...B.

0:04:050:04:07

He had his own private orchestra, consisting of 27 musicians.

0:04:070:04:10

That's right, just 27!

0:04:100:04:13

Kind of like having an MP3 player, only less portable.

0:04:130:04:16

RATTUS LAUGHS, CONTESTANTS LAUGH

0:04:160:04:19

-True.

-Thanks.

0:04:190:04:20

So, the scores are all square.

0:04:200:04:22

Two points each and the final question this round is on Shoes.

0:04:220:04:26

And it's a prop question.

0:04:270:04:29

RATTUS SNIFFS

0:04:290:04:30

Ooh, cheesy!

0:04:300:04:32

Only the very best.

0:04:320:04:34

Here is your question on Shoes...

0:04:340:04:36

Why did sailors in the Georgian Navy not wear shoes?

0:04:360:04:40

Was it, A, because they could cause explosions?

0:04:400:04:43

Was it B, because they couldn't afford them?

0:04:430:04:45

Or was it C, because they wanted to show how hardy they were?

0:04:450:04:48

Here's a clue. It's either A, B or C.

0:04:490:04:52

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:04:520:04:54

Georgie on her own again with A.

0:04:540:04:57

Molly and Josh still agreeing, on C this time.

0:04:570:05:00

The answer is...

0:05:000:05:01

A!

0:05:010:05:03

The nails in the soles of the shoes made sparks,

0:05:030:05:05

which could ignite gunpowder.

0:05:050:05:07

You couldn't make it up.

0:05:070:05:08

Well, you could, but it wouldn't be as interesting.

0:05:080:05:11

So, Georgie, you've won the quiz.

0:05:110:05:12

Time to choose your first Year Sphere.

0:05:120:05:15

Push, push, push.

0:05:150:05:16

Oh, it's very heavy when it's full.

0:05:160:05:18

Oh, come on, Georgie.

0:05:180:05:20

Come on, pick your Year Sphere.

0:05:200:05:21

-Whichever one you want.

-But, beware, inside one is a Stone Age date,

0:05:210:05:26

worth a few million minus points.

0:05:260:05:28

Push, push, push, push! Bye!

0:05:280:05:30

So, winning the quiz means that Georgie

0:05:300:05:32

is through to play the Georgian game.

0:05:320:05:35

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

0:05:350:05:37

Let's find out.

0:05:370:05:38

It is a single-player silly game.

0:05:420:05:45

So, Georgie, it's off down the Time Sewer with you.

0:05:450:05:49

Oh, covered in poo!

0:05:500:05:52

It's 21st October, 1805.

0:05:570:06:00

Heavily outnumbered, the British Navy faced the combined might

0:06:000:06:03

of the French and Spanish fleets.

0:06:030:06:05

It's time to play...

0:06:050:06:06

You are a British Navy gunner.

0:06:080:06:10

Your mission, to load, aim and fire your cannon at the enemy ships.

0:06:100:06:13

You score a point for every enemy ship you shoot

0:06:130:06:16

and lose a point for every British ship you hit.

0:06:160:06:19

Score 6 points in the time limit

0:06:190:06:21

to win your Year Sphere.

0:06:210:06:22

Let the battle commence!

0:06:220:06:25

So, here goes Georgie with the Battle of Trafalgar, Rattus.

0:06:250:06:29

In goes the first ball.

0:06:290:06:31

Now, let's see, it's fallen short.

0:06:310:06:34

It didn't quite make it to the sea, did it, Rattus?

0:06:340:06:36

It didn't. It went straight into

0:06:360:06:38

the sky and off into outer space.

0:06:380:06:40

Yes, and I'm afraid that's the kind of thing

0:06:400:06:42

that can happen and will happen

0:06:420:06:43

if Georgie doesn't point the cannon at the ships.

0:06:430:06:46

She is basically not bothering

0:06:460:06:48

to aim here, Rattus,

0:06:480:06:49

which is a very, very interesting technique.

0:06:490:06:51

We've not seen this before.

0:06:510:06:52

All she is doing

0:06:520:06:54

is loading up the cannon and firing it.

0:06:540:06:57

Oh, no, wait a minute. Here we go.

0:06:570:06:58

She is pointing it this time.

0:06:580:07:00

And that was better.

0:07:000:07:01

A lovely day there, isn't it,

0:07:010:07:03

at sea in the Battle of Trafalgar?

0:07:030:07:05

-It is.

-A lovely blue sky.

0:07:050:07:06

A perfect day for sailing.

0:07:060:07:07

But not for these sailors,

0:07:070:07:08

about to get blown out of the water.

0:07:080:07:10

Although, maybe not, the way Georgie is going about this,

0:07:100:07:13

because that one almost blew up her own ship!

0:07:130:07:15

It nearly rolled out of the end of the cannon

0:07:150:07:17

and blew herself up.

0:07:170:07:18

A nasty sea mist rolling in, Dave.

0:07:180:07:20

Certainly is. I tell you what,

0:07:200:07:22

that seagull has never looked safer, for me.

0:07:220:07:24

She's not really getting the aiming right here.

0:07:240:07:27

And she's running out of time. You have to say,

0:07:270:07:30

it's not looking likely at all for Georgie.

0:07:300:07:32

Oh, she hit one!

0:07:320:07:33

-She's hit one!

-She hit one!

0:07:330:07:35

We could see, there, the benefits

0:07:350:07:37

of aiming the cannon at the ships.

0:07:370:07:39

She got it straight away.

0:07:390:07:40

That wasn't far off either.

0:07:400:07:42

-Time is up.

-Oh, but the penny has dropped just too late for Georgie

0:07:420:07:45

and I'm afraid the French and the Spanish have got away with murder.

0:07:450:07:49

Welcome back, Georgie. Bad luck.

0:07:490:07:51

What happened there? You seem to be struggling a bit.

0:07:510:07:54

Well, I knew I wouldn't get a very good score,

0:07:540:07:56

because my aim is terrible.

0:07:560:07:57

I can't aim to save my life.

0:07:570:07:59

Well, I noticed at the start, you weren't actually aiming at all.

0:07:590:08:02

You didn't actually sort of move...

0:08:020:08:04

-Exactly!

-And you got one down in the end.

0:08:040:08:06

-But I was still rubbish.

-Sadly, Admiral Lord Nelson,

0:08:060:08:09

the brains behind the British victory,

0:08:090:08:11

was shot by a French sniper and died at Trafalgar.

0:08:110:08:14

Not the first time he'd been shot.

0:08:140:08:15

In a previous battle, his right arm had been hit by a bullet

0:08:150:08:19

and it had to be hacked off with a saw.

0:08:190:08:21

That's nothing!

0:08:210:08:22

A mate of mine got caught in a trap and had to gnaw his leg off!

0:08:220:08:26

Like we needed to know that.

0:08:260:08:28

Em...

0:08:280:08:29

Onto Round Two.

0:08:290:08:31

And, to find out what is up next,

0:08:310:08:33

it is over to the Gory Grid.

0:08:330:08:34

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:08:340:08:37

And here are your all-important Middle Ages topics.

0:08:370:08:41

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

0:08:450:08:48

I think I will go for School, please.

0:08:480:08:51

School.

0:08:510:08:52

True or false - at schools in the Middle Ages,

0:08:520:08:55

you were beaten if you made spelling mistakes.

0:08:550:08:58

So, at school in the Middle Ages,

0:08:580:09:00

you were beaten if you made spelling mistakes.

0:09:000:09:03

Is that true or is that false?

0:09:030:09:05

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:09:050:09:07

Josh and Georgie think it's true.

0:09:070:09:10

Molly thinks it's false.

0:09:100:09:12

It's...false.

0:09:120:09:14

In the Middle Ages, there were no spelling corrections.

0:09:140:09:17

You spelled English any way you wanted to and that's a fact.

0:09:170:09:20

F-A-C-T-E. Facte!

0:09:200:09:23

Not how you spell "fact". Never mind.

0:09:230:09:26

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

0:09:260:09:28

Hm... Maybe Tournaments.

0:09:280:09:30

Tournaments.

0:09:300:09:31

Is this true or false?

0:09:310:09:34

A massive fish.

0:09:400:09:41

What do you think? Is that true or could that be false?

0:09:410:09:44

Look out. Everyone is in complete agreement.

0:09:460:09:48

Three trues.

0:09:480:09:50

Are you all right or all wrong?

0:09:500:09:51

I can tell you it's...

0:09:510:09:54

True!

0:09:540:09:55

I reckon they should just do away with the World Cup trophy

0:09:550:09:59

and hand over a massive fish.

0:09:590:10:01

-What do you think?

-One of your better ideas, certainly...

0:10:010:10:04

But still not very good.

0:10:040:10:05

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

0:10:050:10:08

-Animals, please.

-Animals.

0:10:080:10:10

True or false -

0:10:100:10:12

King Henry III built England's first zoo in the Tower of London,

0:10:120:10:16

home to a polar bear,

0:10:160:10:17

which was allowed to fish for dinner in the Thames.

0:10:170:10:20

So, is this true or is this false?

0:10:200:10:23

The girls think it's false.

0:10:230:10:25

Josh on his own with true.

0:10:250:10:27

It's...true.

0:10:270:10:28

The polar bear's keeper used to take it for walks on a lead!

0:10:280:10:32

Yes, and you need a very big plastic bag to clear up after a polar bear.

0:10:340:10:38

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:10:380:10:40

Everyone a winner when it's about poo.

0:10:400:10:42

He said it again!

0:10:420:10:44

I said it again. I'm not saying it again.

0:10:440:10:46

One question left in this round, then.

0:10:460:10:48

Josh and Molly are on two points each.

0:10:480:10:51

Georgie, you can still catch up with this last question

0:10:510:10:54

and it is about Henry II.

0:10:540:10:56

True or false -

0:10:560:10:58

Henry II of France was riding through a town

0:10:580:11:01

when a Cistercian monk stumbled and fell over.

0:11:010:11:04

His robe flew over his head and he showed the king his backside.

0:11:040:11:08

Unbelievable. Do you think that's true or do you think that's false?

0:11:090:11:12

Show me your answers now, please.

0:11:120:11:14

Well, everyone has gone for true.

0:11:140:11:17

Trues across the board.

0:11:170:11:19

It's true!

0:11:190:11:20

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:11:200:11:23

It's not funny!

0:11:230:11:24

Shtum, shtum, Rattus.

0:11:240:11:26

So, that is the end of the round.

0:11:260:11:28

Georgie, I am afraid, for now, you're history.

0:11:280:11:31

You already have a Sphere, so nothing to worry about.

0:11:310:11:33

-That's true.

-Molly and Josh,

0:11:330:11:34

you'll go head-to-head to decide who wins the next Year Sphere.

0:11:340:11:37

Fingers on your buzzers.

0:11:370:11:39

Beginning with the letter K,

0:11:390:11:41

what is the name for a warrior who fought in a suit of armour?

0:11:410:11:44

-AH-CHOO! Molly?

-A knight?

0:11:440:11:47

A knight is correct. Well done, Molly.

0:11:470:11:49

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:11:490:11:51

So, Molly, as the winner of the quiz,

0:11:510:11:52

you are also through to play the Middle Ages game.

0:11:520:11:56

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

0:11:560:12:00

It's an all-play gory game!

0:12:030:12:05

And you are all celebrating,

0:12:050:12:07

so celebrate down the Time Sewer.

0:12:070:12:09

Freedo...! Oh, wait.

0:12:110:12:13

Urgh, it stinks!

0:12:140:12:16

Whee!

0:12:160:12:18

William the Conqueror was a big old bully.

0:12:210:12:23

At his funeral, in 1087, his servants stole his jewels,

0:12:230:12:26

his body was so bloated it exploded

0:12:260:12:29

and the church burned down.

0:12:290:12:31

A fitting tribute, I think you'll agree.

0:12:310:12:33

It's time to play...

0:12:330:12:34

You are William's servants and your challenge

0:12:370:12:40

is to take as much of the old tyrant's treasure as possible

0:12:400:12:42

and put it in your chest.

0:12:420:12:44

All the treasure is colour-coded and you must only take your own colour.

0:12:440:12:48

Whoever collects the most pieces wins the Year Sphere.

0:12:480:12:51

But you'd better be quick, because the church is going to burn down.

0:12:510:12:54

Your time starts...now.

0:12:540:12:57

So, here we go, then, with Yuckaroo.

0:12:570:12:58

They've got to steal the treasure

0:12:580:13:00

and stick it in their own chest.

0:13:000:13:01

And look at the speed of them going!

0:13:010:13:03

This is the fastest thieving we've seen yet, Rattus.

0:13:030:13:06

He's so shocked, he's dumbfounded, he's not speaking.

0:13:070:13:10

There is some top-speed theft happening here.

0:13:100:13:13

You had better be quick if you want to play along at home,

0:13:130:13:16

using that Gory Games app.

0:13:160:13:18

The crown is being stolen. It's got to be

0:13:180:13:19

the most precious piece of treasure, hasn't it, Rattus?

0:13:190:13:22

Well, they all look very pleased with themselves, Dave,

0:13:220:13:24

but the truth of the matter is

0:13:240:13:26

they're not going to get any of that through customs.

0:13:260:13:28

No, you're absolutely right.

0:13:280:13:30

Oh, and Georgie there, putting a bit of green treasure in her chest.

0:13:300:13:33

That wouldn't count, so she's rightly removed it again. Excellent.

0:13:330:13:36

They've got ten pieces each to collect, of course,

0:13:360:13:38

so they are doing very well indeed.

0:13:380:13:40

Oh! One's dropped out, there.

0:13:420:13:44

That bounced out, Josh. That won't count for him.

0:13:440:13:46

And I have to say,

0:13:480:13:50

Molly is one of the fastest thieves I have ever seen.

0:13:500:13:53

Faster, even, than the pickpocket

0:13:530:13:55

who relieved me of my wallet on the way over here this morning.

0:13:550:13:58

Whoa! William the Conqueror's stomach has exploded!

0:13:580:14:01

William the Conqueror's stomach has gone up

0:14:010:14:03

and it has spattered our contestants in all manner of gory gunk.

0:14:030:14:08

But they don't seem that troubled by it.

0:14:080:14:10

They are pressing on with their task,

0:14:100:14:12

although I should point out, at this stage,

0:14:120:14:14

that tomb raiding, generally, is a bit of a no-no.

0:14:140:14:17

Please don't do it.

0:14:170:14:18

Georgie dropping in another piece of treasure there, Rattus.

0:14:190:14:22

She's gaining on Molly, isn't she?

0:14:220:14:24

-She is, Dave.

-That's a very nice piece, isn't it?

0:14:240:14:26

What would that would be worth at auction, Rattus?

0:14:260:14:29

Absolutely nothing. We got all of this junk from a pound shop.

0:14:290:14:32

We got it from the pound shop,

0:14:320:14:33

so it would be worth at least £1 at auction, I'd say.

0:14:330:14:37

Well, that's irrelevant, because it's been stolen.

0:14:370:14:39

It's been stolen by Molly and put into her chest.

0:14:390:14:42

I have to say, I think Molly might be on the point

0:14:420:14:44

of stealing every single bit of treasure available.

0:14:440:14:47

She gets another piece. That's her ninth piece, I think!

0:14:470:14:50

And the church is on fire!

0:14:500:14:51

And that can mean only one thing.

0:14:510:14:53

The end of the game is imminent.

0:14:530:14:54

She's only got one more piece of treasure to get for the clean sweep.

0:14:540:14:58

Here it comes... And there goes the hooter!

0:14:580:15:01

Oh, the hooter beat her to it.

0:15:010:15:03

She was on the point of a memorable world record.

0:15:030:15:06

But at least Molly has the consolation of a Year Sphere.

0:15:060:15:09

Welcome back, Gory Gamers.

0:15:110:15:13

Get back behind those podiums.

0:15:130:15:15

-Did you enjoy that?

-No, it was disgusting.

0:15:150:15:17

-Didn't you enjoy that?

-Who wants guts flying over them?

0:15:170:15:20

-Ooh, me, me, me, me!

-You got covered in guts?

0:15:200:15:22

-Did everyone get covered in guts?

-I didn't.

-You didn't? You escaped.

0:15:220:15:25

-I'm jealous of you!

-I think I've got a bit of his stomach on my shoulder.

0:15:250:15:28

That was extraordinary.

0:15:280:15:29

The winner, with nine pieces of treasure,

0:15:290:15:32

was Molly!

0:15:320:15:34

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:15:340:15:35

William the Conqueror's coronation in 1066 was just as eventful.

0:15:350:15:39

The congregation cheered when the crown was placed on his head,

0:15:390:15:42

but his guards thought it was a riot,

0:15:420:15:44

so they attacked the crowd and set fire to the buildings.

0:15:440:15:46

Oh, he knew how to liven up a church service, that William.

0:15:460:15:50

He certainly did.

0:15:500:15:51

Over to the Gory Grid, then, to find out what up next.

0:15:510:15:54

It's the Frightful First World War.

0:15:540:15:57

Four questions, as always.

0:15:570:15:59

And here are your four World War I topics.

0:15:590:16:02

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

0:16:070:16:09

-I'll go with Bombs.

-Bombs.

0:16:090:16:12

Your question is...

0:16:120:16:14

So, what was the nickname for a gas mask worn by soldiers?

0:16:230:16:27

Was it A, a goggle-eyed-booger,

0:16:270:16:29

B, a Mickey Mouse,

0:16:290:16:30

or C, a rat snout?

0:16:300:16:32

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:16:320:16:34

Georgie and Josh agreeing with B.

0:16:340:16:35

Molly out on her own with A.

0:16:350:16:37

What's the answer?

0:16:370:16:38

The answer is...

0:16:380:16:39

And, by sheer coincidence, goggle-eyed-booger

0:16:420:16:45

was my Rat School nickname.

0:16:450:16:47

I can well believe it.

0:16:470:16:48

Molly, it's your turn to choose a topic.

0:16:480:16:51

Erm, Trenches.

0:16:510:16:53

Trenches.

0:16:530:16:54

Which of these diseases affected soldiers in World War I?

0:16:540:16:58

A, trench ear,

0:16:580:16:59

B, trench eye,

0:16:590:17:01

or C, trench foot?

0:17:010:17:03

Which of these diseases affected soldiers in the First World War?

0:17:030:17:05

Was it A, trench ear,

0:17:050:17:07

B, trench eye,

0:17:070:17:09

or C, trench foot?

0:17:090:17:11

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:17:110:17:12

So, Molly and Josh agreeing on C.

0:17:120:17:15

Georgie thinks it's B. Let's hear the answer.

0:17:150:17:18

The answer is...

0:17:180:17:20

C, trench foot.

0:17:200:17:22

When your foot got cold and damp,

0:17:220:17:23

blisters could get infected and turn to gangrene.

0:17:230:17:26

The best way to avoid it was

0:17:260:17:28

not get sent to the trenches in the first place. Ha-ha!

0:17:280:17:31

Yes, that's the ideal way to avoid it, certainly.

0:17:310:17:34

Georgie, your turn to pick a topic.

0:17:340:17:36

Can I go for Food, please?

0:17:360:17:37

You can go for Food

0:17:370:17:39

and that is a prop question.

0:17:390:17:42

Look at those beauties!

0:17:420:17:45

What did French peasants do with British Army biscuits?

0:17:450:17:49

Was it A, feed them to their cows?

0:17:490:17:51

Was it B, eat them?

0:17:510:17:53

Or was it C, light fires with them?

0:17:530:17:55

So, what do you think? Is it A, B or C?

0:17:550:17:59

Show me your answers now, please.

0:17:590:18:01

Georgie and Josh going with B.

0:18:030:18:05

Molly on her own with C.

0:18:050:18:07

The correct answer is...

0:18:070:18:09

C. They lit fires with them.

0:18:090:18:12

They thought they were far too horrible to eat.

0:18:120:18:15

-Ooh, Dave, Dave, Dave!

-Yeah?

-Can I...? Can I...?

-Yeah.

0:18:150:18:17

-I'll leave them there for you.

-Thank you!

-OK.

0:18:170:18:20

-Ugh!

-Well, there is actually one question left in this round.

0:18:200:18:22

But, looking at the scores, we don't need to ask it,

0:18:220:18:25

because, Molly, you can't be caught.

0:18:250:18:27

You've won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:18:270:18:29

You're through to play the World War I game.

0:18:290:18:32

But will it be an all-play or will it be a single-play game?

0:18:320:18:35

Yes, it's a single-player silly game.

0:18:380:18:40

So, Molly, off you go down the Time Sewer.

0:18:400:18:43

Urgh!

0:18:450:18:46

Much of World War I was fought in the trenches,

0:18:480:18:51

which were truly frightful and full to the brim with rats.

0:18:510:18:54

It's time to play...

0:18:540:18:56

Your job, quite simply, is to splat that rat.

0:18:580:19:00

-Hm? Hm?

-RATTUS SPITS

0:19:000:19:03

What have us rats ever done to you?!

0:19:030:19:05

Well, two words -

0:19:050:19:06

the...plague.

0:19:060:19:08

Fair cop.

0:19:080:19:10

Whack 15 rats with your spade within the time limit

0:19:100:19:12

to win the Year Sphere.

0:19:120:19:14

And your time starts...now.

0:19:140:19:17

So, Molly about to vanquish vile vermin.

0:19:170:19:19

There's a little one. Missed that one.

0:19:190:19:22

Wow! She gave that one a thump, though!

0:19:220:19:24

She's making up for lost time here, Rattus.

0:19:240:19:26

And Rattus, I have to say,

0:19:260:19:28

is staring at this open-mouthed.

0:19:280:19:29

Rattus, she is wielding that spade

0:19:290:19:31

like a lunatic.

0:19:310:19:33

That one has a helmet, in the foreground.

0:19:330:19:35

I'm afraid that won't be enough protection!

0:19:350:19:37

She is whacking like a berserker!

0:19:370:19:39

Rattus, this is terrible.

0:19:390:19:41

You really don't want to watch this,

0:19:410:19:42

because she is sparing none of these rats.

0:19:420:19:45

She's not just trying to score points here.

0:19:450:19:46

She is trying to inflict damage

0:19:460:19:48

and, boy, is she doing that!

0:19:480:19:50

-Ooh!

-Oh, and now my colleague Rattus

0:19:500:19:52

is getting emotional. And that one...

0:19:520:19:54

Oh, it just slipped off the side of the helmet.

0:19:540:19:56

Probably poked its eye out.

0:19:560:19:57

Poor thing. What a way to go.

0:19:570:19:59

Whacked by a spade.

0:19:590:20:01

Well, Molly just needs one more to win this now.

0:20:010:20:04

It'll all be over, Rattus.

0:20:040:20:06

And she's done it! And Rattus has gone.

0:20:060:20:08

Rattus has fainted,

0:20:080:20:10

while Molly celebrates her fourth Year Sphere.

0:20:100:20:12

Welcome back, Molly. Well done.

0:20:140:20:16

Pick yourself a Year Sphere, why don't you?

0:20:160:20:19

Tell me about your technique.

0:20:190:20:21

I just tried to whack them really hard,

0:20:210:20:23

cos I don't really like rats.

0:20:230:20:25

LAUGHTER

0:20:250:20:26

-Hello!

-Have you had a go at Rattus?

0:20:260:20:28

It's the last time I take a peep out during that game.

0:20:280:20:32

Yeah. I'd keep well away from that game, if I were you.

0:20:320:20:35

-Well, you did brilliantly, Molly. Well done.

-Thank you.

0:20:350:20:37

Soldiers in World War I didn't just whack the rats,

0:20:370:20:40

they also had a cunning trick.

0:20:400:20:41

They'd put a bayonet on their rifle,

0:20:410:20:43

then a lump of cheese on the bayonet.

0:20:430:20:46

They'd aim the rifle at the enemy lines,

0:20:460:20:48

wait for the rat to nibble at the cheese and...

0:20:480:20:50

I think we've heard quite enough.

0:20:500:20:52

Time for the next round and it better not involve injuries to rats.

0:20:520:20:55

Time for the final round.

0:20:550:20:57

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

0:20:570:21:00

It's the Vile Victorians.

0:21:000:21:03

Good day.

0:21:030:21:04

No quirky quiz in our final round.

0:21:040:21:06

It's straight to our big all-play game

0:21:060:21:08

and this one is scary,

0:21:080:21:10

with a capital S.

0:21:100:21:12

Everyone...get down that Time Sewer.

0:21:120:21:16

Go on, Josh.

0:21:160:21:18

I really don't want to do this.

0:21:180:21:20

Bye, Georgie. Bye, Molly.

0:21:200:21:22

-See ya!

-See ya!

0:21:220:21:24

Bodies were stolen from graveyards

0:21:240:21:26

to sell to surgeons,

0:21:260:21:27

who wanted to experiment on the corpses

0:21:270:21:29

to find out more about how the human body works.

0:21:290:21:32

It's time to play...

0:21:320:21:33

You are a rotten robber.

0:21:360:21:39

Your challenge - to steal three bodies from the graveyard,

0:21:390:21:42

get them through the railings, onto the carts,

0:21:420:21:44

find the key to the cemetery gate

0:21:440:21:45

and get them onto the surgeon's table.

0:21:450:21:47

If you hear this noise... WHISTLE BLOWS

0:21:470:21:50

..then you must rush back to the cemetery and hide,

0:21:500:21:52

so the policeman doesn't spot you.

0:21:520:21:54

A second whistle means you can go again.

0:21:540:21:56

The first person to get all their bodies to the surgeon's table

0:21:560:21:59

and grab their dodgy money is the winner.

0:21:590:22:02

Three, two, one...

0:22:020:22:03

HOOTER BLARES

0:22:030:22:06

So, here go the grave robbers,

0:22:060:22:08

through the railings, grabbing their first bodies now.

0:22:080:22:10

Now, I'm afraid, Josh, you won't get it through like that.

0:22:100:22:13

That's it, that's very good.

0:22:130:22:15

The drag-through is the best way of getting them through.

0:22:150:22:17

And Molly is off and running straightaway, look at that!

0:22:170:22:20

Up to the cemetery gates already.

0:22:200:22:22

Found the key. That can be a problem.

0:22:220:22:24

We've seen that in the past.

0:22:240:22:25

And she's working away at the lock already.

0:22:250:22:27

She's through, through with corpse number one.

0:22:280:22:30

There it is. Two more to go for her.

0:22:300:22:32

That's delivered. She can leave it now. It's there.

0:22:320:22:35

I've got a bad feeling about Georgie and that middle corpse.

0:22:350:22:38

She's looking in his trousers for the key.

0:22:380:22:40

It's hanging off the end of a chain.

0:22:400:22:43

And Josh is taking his trolley into the final sector of the game.

0:22:430:22:46

That's not necessary either.

0:22:460:22:47

So the person who's listened the most

0:22:470:22:50

is, once again, in the lead.

0:22:500:22:52

And Georgie's found the key.

0:22:520:22:53

Well, that's a good start, a very good start...

0:22:530:22:56

Hang on, where's Josh going with that trolley?!

0:22:560:22:58

WHISTLE BLOWS Here come the police!

0:22:580:23:00

They've got to be quick. They've got to get behind those gravestones

0:23:000:23:03

and they've got to be quiet, because here he comes -

0:23:030:23:05

it's our Victorian bobby,

0:23:050:23:07

the peeler, the rozzer.

0:23:070:23:09

Here he comes, looking for naughty grave robbers

0:23:090:23:12

in amongst the topiary and hedges.

0:23:120:23:15

Clearly, this policeman doesn't think there's anything wrong with

0:23:160:23:19

a corpse hanging halfway through a railing!

0:23:190:23:22

WHISTLE BLOWS The whistle goes,

0:23:220:23:24

the second whistle - they are back to the game, to where they were.

0:23:240:23:28

And Molly resumes her battle with corpse number two.

0:23:280:23:31

She is through and it's on the trolley. And off she goes.

0:23:310:23:34

And there, look, he's got a golfer - the check trousers there.

0:23:340:23:37

I think, in his lifetime, this corpse was clearly a golfer.

0:23:370:23:40

Well, Dave, I think it has to be said

0:23:400:23:42

golfers do, in fact, die eventually.

0:23:420:23:45

They certainly do, but not normally on the course.

0:23:450:23:47

And they are not normally buried in their kit.

0:23:470:23:49

But this one clearly has been.

0:23:490:23:51

Second corpse beautifully delivered there by Molly.

0:23:510:23:54

Georgie still wrestling with that lock.

0:23:540:23:56

She is a long way behind now.

0:23:560:23:58

There goes Josh. In, second corpse delivered.

0:23:580:24:00

So it's tight between Molly and Josh.

0:24:000:24:02

Oh, she's through! Georgie is finally through with a corpse!

0:24:040:24:08

And there goes Josh with cobwebs in his hair.

0:24:080:24:10

Molly a little bit cobwebbed as well.

0:24:100:24:12

Here they go, this is the race! They are as they stand here.

0:24:120:24:14

Third corpse each coming through.

0:24:140:24:16

Look at Josh yanking that...

0:24:160:24:18

Oh! And that could be crucial.

0:24:180:24:19

Molly loses her third corpse off the trolley.

0:24:190:24:21

That delay could cost her everything.

0:24:210:24:24

And here comes Josh. Can he cash in?

0:24:240:24:26

He's certainly got a cobweb on his head.

0:24:260:24:28

Can he cash in? Yes, he's straight for the bag.

0:24:280:24:30

Nothing can stop him now,

0:24:300:24:31

apart from falling into an open grave.

0:24:310:24:33

He's avoided doing that and it's there!

0:24:330:24:35

Josh has made it.

0:24:350:24:37

He's won the grave robbing and that gives him a Year Sphere.

0:24:370:24:40

Welcome back, everybody. Welcome back. And...

0:24:410:24:44

Well, no need to ask you, Josh. You're off.

0:24:440:24:46

You've grabbed yourself a Year Sphere.

0:24:460:24:48

Well done.

0:24:480:24:49

When Queen Victoria was just a child,

0:24:490:24:51

the infamous criminals Burke and Hare

0:24:510:24:53

were plying their gruesome trade.

0:24:530:24:55

Not satisfied with just robbing graves,

0:24:550:24:57

they murdered people and sold them to a surgeon

0:24:570:25:00

who experimented on the corpses.

0:25:000:25:02

Burke and Hare were caught.

0:25:020:25:04

Hare testified against Burke,

0:25:040:25:05

who was hanged and what happened to his body?

0:25:050:25:09

It was given to a surgeon, who experimented on the corpse.

0:25:090:25:12

Ha-ha! It's got a lovely kind of circularity to it, hasn't it?

0:25:120:25:16

Yeah, I'm not sure "lovely" is the word...

0:25:160:25:19

It was an excellent effort, wasn't it?

0:25:190:25:20

How did you feel it went for you?

0:25:200:25:22

I knew I was going to win when Molly slipped up for me. Thanks, Molly!

0:25:220:25:25

Fantastic. Molly, you've ended up with four Year Spheres.

0:25:250:25:28

Georgie, you've got one. Josh, you've got one.

0:25:280:25:30

-Yay!

-Yay, indeed. Anyone can win this.

0:25:300:25:33

It's time to count them up.

0:25:330:25:35

Remember, the AD years are added to your total,

0:25:350:25:38

the BC years are subtracted from it.

0:25:380:25:41

Molly, let's have a look at your first sphere.

0:25:410:25:44

1533 AD -

0:25:440:25:47

the Incan empire destroyed by Spanish conquistadores.

0:25:470:25:50

1485 AD -

0:25:500:25:53

Richard III killed in battle that year.

0:25:530:25:56

1702 AD -

0:25:570:25:59

the death of King William III.

0:25:590:26:01

This all-important fourth one, what is it?

0:26:010:26:03

1840 AD!

0:26:050:26:07

The first stamp, the Penny Black, comes into use.

0:26:070:26:10

There's applause from the other two contestants.

0:26:100:26:13

You have scored 6,560 points.

0:26:130:26:16

And, seeing as we don't feature years in the future,

0:26:160:26:18

and you've got one sphere each, neither of you can catch her.

0:26:180:26:21

But we're going to have a look at your spheres anyway.

0:26:210:26:23

Georgie, what have you got there?

0:26:230:26:25

Oh, dear. 2184 BC -

0:26:250:26:28

the Egyptian king Pepi II died aged 100 that year.

0:26:280:26:32

Josh, can you beat Georgie? Let's have a look.

0:26:320:26:35

Well, you can, but only just. 490 BC -

0:26:350:26:38

the battle of Marathon

0:26:380:26:39

between the Persians and the Athenians was that year.

0:26:390:26:42

So, that means today's winner, with 6,560 points, is Molly,

0:26:420:26:47

who will be taking home our star prize.

0:26:470:26:49

And when I say "star", think more "black hole", unfortunately,

0:26:490:26:52

as it's been selected by the flea metropolis that is Rattus Rattus.

0:26:520:26:57

Well, today's prize is nothing more than a nutritious piece of fruit.

0:26:570:27:01

-A date, to be precise.

-Oh, that sounds harmless.

0:27:010:27:04

Mm, an ancient Egyptian date, no less,

0:27:040:27:07

picked by a trained baboon.

0:27:070:27:10

Hold on a second. Tell me that isn't a bit of baboon poop on it!

0:27:100:27:14

-Erm...give us a sniff.

-Ew!

0:27:140:27:17

Yeah, you're right, it is baboon poop.

0:27:190:27:21

Well, all the better! More authentic, Molly!

0:27:210:27:23

-So, con-RAT-ulations!

-There you go, Molly.

0:27:240:27:28

Sorry, the baboon poop should come off after a while, hopefully.

0:27:280:27:32

-Thanks.

-Just try not to touch it.

0:27:320:27:35

It just remains for me to say thanks to our winner, Molly.

0:27:350:27:38

And thanks, also, to our gallant runners-up, Georgie and Josh.

0:27:380:27:42

And no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

0:27:420:27:45

He doesn't mean it, not really.

0:27:450:27:47
