# 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! What's my name?

0:00:270:00:29

Are you all right?

0:00:290:00:30

I was in my dressing room and a woman came in, screamed,

0:00:300:00:35

and someone hit me with a shovel.

0:00:350:00:37

I suppose that's an occupational hazard for a rat.

0:00:370:00:40

Oh, I'm a rat?

0:00:400:00:41

Oh, that would explain the hairy arms and the whiskers.

0:00:410:00:44

Yeah. This is the show where you get to test your knowledge

0:00:440:00:47

of Horrible Histories with quirky quiz questions and gory games.

0:00:470:00:51

Ah, yes, it's all coming back to me now.

0:00:510:00:53

Good. Just try to keep quiet.

0:00:530:00:54

Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:00:540:00:56

-Hi, I'm Christian.

-Hi, I'm Isabel.

0:00:560:00:58

Hi, I'm Harry.

0:00:580:00:59

There they all are.

0:00:590:01:01

-Feeling better?

-Yes, thank you, Dave.

0:01:010:01:03

We rats are very fast healers.

0:01:030:01:05

Now, remember, if you're watching at home,

0:01:050:01:07

you can play along using the Gory Games app.

0:01:070:01:10

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

0:01:100:01:13

Right. Christian, Isabel, Harry, you are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:01:130:01:17

Each Year Sphere contains an historical date

0:01:170:01:19

and, at the end of this show, your Year Sphere dates will be added up

0:01:190:01:22

with AD dates being added to your total

0:01:220:01:25

and BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:01:250:01:28

So, if these were your Year Spheres,

0:01:280:01:30

we would add 1,215, then subtract 480,

0:01:300:01:34

giving us a total of, Rattus?

0:01:340:01:35

735.

0:01:350:01:37

Crikey, that bang on the head really has messed with your brain.

0:01:370:01:40

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

0:01:400:01:43

will win a truly amazing prize.

0:01:430:01:45

Yes, imagine a games console, a widescreen TV.

0:01:450:01:48

Then forget all that and imagine some old rubbish

0:01:480:01:50

that he's dragged out of the Time Sewer,

0:01:500:01:52

-because that's what you're getting.

-Don't worry, though,

0:01:520:01:54

-I usually try to clean off most of the poo.

-Bonus!

0:01:540:01:57

Right, let's get cracking.

0:01:570:01:58

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

0:01:580:02:01

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:02:010:02:04

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

0:02:040:02:07

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

0:02:120:02:14

-What are you going to go for?

-Pyramids.

-Pyramids.

0:02:140:02:18

That is a prop question.

0:02:180:02:19

Oh, prop question.

0:02:190:02:21

-BOTH:

-Prop question, prop question.

0:02:210:02:23

We're going to stop doing that now.

0:02:230:02:25

True or false, pyramid workers were paid partly in radishes and garlic?

0:02:250:02:30

Pyramid workers were paid partly in radishes and garlic.

0:02:300:02:34

Is that true, or is that false?

0:02:340:02:36

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:02:360:02:38

There we go.

0:02:380:02:39

So Christian and Isabel agreeing on true,

0:02:390:02:41

Harry out on his own with false.

0:02:410:02:43

Well, I can tell you that it is in fact true.

0:02:430:02:46

After pulling huge stone bricks all day in the hot sun,

0:02:460:02:49

I suspect pongy breath was the least of their worries.

0:02:490:02:51

-Fancy some of that?

-No, thank you, it gives you pongy breath.

0:02:510:02:54

And that will be the least of your worries, as well.

0:02:540:02:56

OK, Isabel, let's pick a topic, please.

0:02:560:02:59

-Mummies.

-Mummies.

0:02:590:03:00

Let's hear that question.

0:03:000:03:03

True or false - in early Egyptian history,

0:03:030:03:06

mummification sometimes went a bit wrong,

0:03:060:03:08

and when a mummy's arms dropped off, they used a stick instead?

0:03:080:03:12

Is it true, or is it false?

0:03:120:03:14

Show me your answers now, please.

0:03:140:03:16

OK. Everyone in total agreement. They've all gone for true.

0:03:170:03:20

Are they all right, or are they all wrong?

0:03:200:03:22

It's true.

0:03:220:03:24

You'd need some big old sticks to replace these guns, though.

0:03:240:03:26

Check out these babies.

0:03:260:03:29

OK, Harry, your turn to pick a topic.

0:03:290:03:31

Tutankhamun. Tutankhamun.

0:03:310:03:33

That is a question from my esteemed colleague, Mr Rattus Rattus.

0:03:340:03:38

Thank you. True or false, Tutankhamun's tomb was cursed,

0:03:380:03:43

so all the archaeologists who discovered it

0:03:430:03:46

died soon after they entered it.

0:03:460:03:48

Is that true or false?

0:03:480:03:49

Show me now.

0:03:490:03:51

Isabel and Harry think it's true.

0:03:510:03:52

Christian out on his own with false.

0:03:520:03:54

Who's right, Rattus?

0:03:540:03:55

Ah, it's false, I'm afraid.

0:03:550:03:59

The infamous curse of Tutankhamun was a story made up by the papers.

0:03:590:04:03

Howard Carter, the lead archaeologist,

0:04:030:04:06

lived for another 17 years.

0:04:060:04:08

So don't believe everything you read in the papers.

0:04:080:04:11

OK, one question left in this round.

0:04:110:04:13

It's a question on soldiers, and here it is.

0:04:130:04:16

True or false - ordinary Egyptian soldiers wore ornate metal helmets?

0:04:160:04:22

OK. True or false -

0:04:220:04:24

ordinary Egyptian soldiers wore ornate metal helmets?

0:04:240:04:29

There we go. The boys agreeing on false.

0:04:290:04:31

Isabel on her own with true.

0:04:310:04:33

Who's right?

0:04:330:04:34

It's false.

0:04:340:04:35

Only officers had metal helmets.

0:04:350:04:37

Ordinary soldiers had to protect their heads

0:04:370:04:39

by growing their hair nice and thick.

0:04:390:04:41

Tough luck if you were bald.

0:04:410:04:43

Excellent. Well, that's the end of the round.

0:04:430:04:45

With maximum points,

0:04:450:04:46

we can see Christian has won the first Year Sphere.

0:04:460:04:49

But, be warned, some of them could contain a Stone Age date,

0:04:490:04:53

which could be worth a few million minus points.

0:04:530:04:55

Push, push, push, push, push, push, push...

0:04:550:04:58

Here's a hint, Christian.

0:04:580:05:00

Pick a gold, shiny one.

0:05:000:05:02

Oh, he's got a good reach.

0:05:020:05:04

-You sure?

-Yeah.

0:05:040:05:06

Okey dokey. Push, push, push, push, push, push, push...

0:05:060:05:08

So, Christian, you are through to play the Egyptian game,

0:05:080:05:12

but will you be playing alone, or will everyone else get to play too?

0:05:120:05:16

Let's find out.

0:05:160:05:17

It's an all play silly game,

0:05:210:05:23

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

0:05:230:05:27

Lead the way, Harry.

0:05:270:05:28

Ew!

0:05:280:05:31

Eeeh!

0:05:310:05:33

Help!

0:05:330:05:34

Now, the ancient Egyptians were so smart

0:05:350:05:38

that they built giant pyramids and invented clocks that ran on water.

0:05:380:05:41

Hard to believe, then,

0:05:410:05:42

that they also thought human fly traps

0:05:420:05:44

were a good idea.

0:05:440:05:46

Yes, it's time to play...

0:05:460:05:47

Flies were such a problem in ancient Egypt,

0:05:500:05:52

King Pepi had honey poured over slaves

0:05:520:05:54

and stood them in the corners of the room to attract the flies.

0:05:540:05:57

You are a honey slave.

0:05:570:05:58

Your challenge - to catch as many flies on your honey suit

0:05:580:06:01

and fly swat as possible.

0:06:010:06:02

The person who catches the most flies in the time limit

0:06:020:06:04

wins the Year Sphere.

0:06:040:06:06

And here come those flies.

0:06:060:06:07

In three, two, one.

0:06:070:06:10

FOGHORN SOUNDS

0:06:100:06:11

Here we go, then, with Honey Slaves, and remember,

0:06:110:06:13

the flies either have to stick to their paddles,

0:06:130:06:16

which are sticky on both sides, Rattus, or their costumes,

0:06:160:06:20

which are very much like honey, aren't they?

0:06:200:06:22

-They certainly are, Dave.

-RATTUS LAUGHS

0:06:220:06:24

They also look a little bit

0:06:240:06:25

like custard monsters.

0:06:250:06:27

They do. They do look like custard monsters.

0:06:270:06:29

You're absolutely right.

0:06:290:06:30

If you catch any tasty-looking ones, save them for me.

0:06:300:06:33

Well, now, come on, Rattus, let's not get involved in the game.

0:06:330:06:36

Christian, Isabel and Harry have got a lot to be concentrating on.

0:06:360:06:39

They don't need to be sorting out your lunch...

0:06:390:06:42

or your dinner.

0:06:420:06:43

And lots of flies coming out now.

0:06:440:06:46

Oh, look at that!

0:06:460:06:47

That was a little rush of them. Must have disturbed a nest there.

0:06:470:06:50

Oh, they nearly stuck

0:06:500:06:51

to each other's paddles there, Rattus.

0:06:510:06:53

That really is one of the terrible things

0:06:530:06:55

about this game.

0:06:550:06:56

You can actually get stuck to each other, if you're not careful.

0:06:560:06:59

-You certainly can.

-Now look at this.

0:06:590:07:00

We can see that Christian is aiming for them

0:07:000:07:03

with his paddle,

0:07:030:07:04

but a few are getting stuck to his chest.

0:07:040:07:07

He is now part-covered in flies.

0:07:080:07:10

Look at that.

0:07:100:07:12

And he's winning by a considerable margin, it has to be said.

0:07:120:07:15

Isabel lagging slightly behind.

0:07:150:07:18

Oh. Look at Christian. He's got one on his apron.

0:07:180:07:21

Well, that's the first time we've seen a fly there.

0:07:210:07:23

He's really attracting the flies, Christian.

0:07:230:07:25

I don't know if he has sprayed himself in something

0:07:250:07:27

as he's come on, but he's winning this by a country mile,

0:07:270:07:30

you have to say.

0:07:300:07:32

-Time's up.

-FOGHORN SOUNDS

0:07:320:07:33

And it's all over and, for my money,

0:07:330:07:36

if you ever get an infestation of flies in your house,

0:07:360:07:38

there's your man.

0:07:380:07:39

Get behind your podiums.

0:07:410:07:43

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

0:07:430:07:45

Christian, I've never seen a man more covered in flies

0:07:450:07:47

than you just were just then. Talk me through that technique.

0:07:470:07:50

I was like...

0:07:500:07:52

So if they miss the bat, they landed on you?

0:07:520:07:55

-Yeah.

-And the winner of the Year Sphere,

0:07:550:07:58

with a new Gory Games record, it's Christian.

0:07:580:08:01

Help yourself to another Year Sphere, Christian.

0:08:010:08:05

-Excellent.

-Dave, is it true that King Pepi

0:08:050:08:08

had to prove his fitness to rule

0:08:080:08:10

by running around the pyramid every 30 years?

0:08:100:08:12

I believe that is true, yes.

0:08:120:08:14

Wow.

0:08:140:08:15

So, you'd had to do that about six times already?

0:08:150:08:18

Because you're old.

0:08:180:08:19

Yes, I did understand it.

0:08:190:08:21

OK, on to round two.

0:08:210:08:23

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

0:08:230:08:27

It's the Frightful First World War.

0:08:270:08:29

And here are your all-important World War I topics.

0:08:290:08:33

-What, I don't know what you're looking at me for.

-You're a rat.

0:08:390:08:42

Isabel, it's your turn to pick first this time,

0:08:420:08:44

-what's it going to be?

-Rats.

-Rats.

0:08:440:08:46

That is a question from Sir Rattus of Rattus.

0:08:470:08:51

Who were known by World War I soldiers

0:08:510:08:54

as rats after mouldy cheese?

0:08:540:08:57

Was it...?

0:08:570:08:58

..or C, soldiers new to the trenches.

0:09:030:09:06

It's either A, B or C.

0:09:060:09:07

Let's have a look at those answers.

0:09:070:09:11

OK, so the boys agreeing on B, Isabel on her own with A.

0:09:110:09:14

-Who, if anyone, Rattus, is correct?

-Well...

0:09:140:09:18

Isabel is absolutely right with A,

0:09:180:09:20

it was in fact doctors and nurses.

0:09:200:09:23

They came from the Royal Army Medical Corps,

0:09:230:09:25

whose initials are RAMC.

0:09:250:09:27

The same initials as rats after mouldy cheese.

0:09:270:09:32

The rat knows all.

0:09:320:09:33

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

0:09:330:09:35

-Slang.

-Slang. Let's hear that question.

0:09:350:09:38

What was the trenches slang for toilet paper?

0:09:390:09:42

Was it A, bumf, B, botty blotty, or was it C, cheeks?

0:09:480:09:54

Show me your answers, everyone.

0:09:540:09:56

OK, the boys agreeing again with A.

0:09:560:09:58

Isabel again out on her own with C.

0:09:580:10:00

What's the answer?

0:10:000:10:02

The answer is A, bumf. It was short for bum fodder.

0:10:020:10:06

Food for your bottom.

0:10:060:10:09

-He just said food for your bottom.

-RATTUS LAUGHS

0:10:090:10:14

Food for your bottom. Food for your bottom.

0:10:140:10:17

-Finished?

-Bottom.

-One more bottom, lovely.

0:10:170:10:20

Christian. Your turn to pick a topic.

0:10:200:10:23

-Trenches.

-Trenches.

0:10:230:10:24

Your question is...

0:10:260:10:28

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

0:10:380:10:40

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:10:420:10:44

OK, all three answers are different.

0:10:440:10:47

Let's see which one was right.

0:10:470:10:48

The answer is B, No Man's Land.

0:10:480:10:52

Because no man would want to set foot there for fear of being shot.

0:10:520:10:57

It's horrible, but it's true.

0:10:570:10:59

It is indeed. So, the final question this round is on MI5.

0:10:590:11:03

And here it comes.

0:11:030:11:05

MI5 was Britain's top-secret spy service in World War I,

0:11:050:11:10

but who did they sometimes use as messengers?

0:11:100:11:14

Was it A, clowns,

0:11:200:11:22

B, Girl Guides, or C, squirrels?

0:11:220:11:25

Again, all three answers appearing.

0:11:250:11:28

Let's find out who's right.

0:11:280:11:30

The answer is B, MI5 used Girl Guides as secret messengers.

0:11:300:11:36

Wonder if you got a badge for that?

0:11:360:11:37

Probably not, wouldn't be a very good way of keeping it secret.

0:11:370:11:40

So that's the end of the round.

0:11:400:11:42

Two points each for Harry and Isabel, fingers on buzzers, please,

0:11:420:11:46

because this is the tie-break question.

0:11:460:11:48

Beginning with the letter G,

0:11:480:11:50

what did soldiers have to wear on their face

0:11:500:11:52

to stop their lungs filling up with poison?

0:11:520:11:54

BREAKING WIND SOUND EFFECT Isabel.

0:11:540:11:56

-Gas masks.

-Gas mask is absolutely right.

0:11:560:11:58

Well done, Isabel, you've won yourself a Year Sphere.

0:11:580:12:00

Please collect it now.

0:12:000:12:01

Isabel, as the quiz winner,

0:12:030:12:05

you're also free to play the World War I game,

0:12:050:12:07

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

0:12:070:12:11

Let's find out.

0:12:110:12:12

It's a single player silly game.

0:12:160:12:18

So, Isabel, get down that Time Sewer with you.

0:12:180:12:22

The trenches of the First World War were terrible places to be,

0:12:260:12:29

made even worse by all the rats.

0:12:290:12:32

It's time to play...

0:12:320:12:33

Just like the soldiers in those trenches,

0:12:360:12:38

you've got to splat some rats.

0:12:380:12:39

I'm not listening, la-la-la-la-la.

0:12:390:12:42

Whack 15 rats with your spade within the time limit

0:12:420:12:44

to win the Year Sphere. And your time starts now.

0:12:440:12:48

FOGHORN SOUNDS

0:12:480:12:49

So here goes Isabel, attempting to vanquish

0:12:490:12:52

vile vermin. Rattus, as usual,

0:12:520:12:54

you might want to look away here.

0:12:540:12:56

Dave, I hate to say this,

0:12:560:12:57

but I've got a horrible feeling it was Isabel

0:12:570:12:59

that crowned me at the top of the show.

0:12:590:13:01

It turns out that Isabel has crowned Rattus

0:13:010:13:04

at the start of the show,

0:13:040:13:06

and that is surely a police matter.

0:13:060:13:09

And that helmet is not going to be enough

0:13:090:13:11

to protect that rat from the inevitable concussion.

0:13:110:13:14

In fact, talking of memory loss,

0:13:140:13:15

don't forget that you can of course play along at home

0:13:150:13:18

using the Gory Games app.

0:13:180:13:20

Seems very unfair to me, Dave,

0:13:200:13:22

Isabel comes across as being such a loving, caring, considerate child,

0:13:220:13:26

when in fact in reality she's a monster!

0:13:260:13:29

Yes, well, that's the thing.

0:13:290:13:31

Rats, they shouldn't be there, really,

0:13:310:13:32

if they don't want to get bopped on the head,

0:13:320:13:34

they really shouldn't be there.

0:13:340:13:36

They're all wearing protective helmets now,

0:13:360:13:38

I notice, it seems to have caught on.

0:13:380:13:39

You might want to think about one for yourself, maybe a bandanna.

0:13:390:13:42

You'd look quite nice at a jaunty angle, perhaps.

0:13:420:13:44

A bandanna isn't going to afford me any protection

0:13:440:13:46

-from a spade, is it, you clown?

-All right.

0:13:460:13:49

Dear, oh, dear.

0:13:490:13:50

Isabel has done it. Well, superb.

0:13:510:13:54

15 rats bashed on the head, and Isabel, the smiling assassin,

0:13:540:13:58

has done it.

0:13:580:13:59

Well done, Isabel. Congratulations.

0:14:000:14:02

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:14:020:14:04

And the soldiers didn't just whack the rats

0:14:050:14:07

that voluntarily popped their heads up,

0:14:070:14:09

sometimes they'd smoked the rats out of their burrows

0:14:090:14:12

using explosives.

0:14:120:14:13

Forcing us out of our homes.

0:14:130:14:15

I mean, honestly, you people

0:14:150:14:17

are whatever the equivalent is of inhumane.

0:14:170:14:19

In-rat-humane.

0:14:190:14:21

Or in-rat-ade.

0:14:210:14:23

Has anyone got a dictionary?

0:14:230:14:25

Over to the Gory Grid to find out what's up next.

0:14:250:14:27

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:14:270:14:30

And your four Tudor topics are...

0:14:300:14:32

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

0:14:360:14:39

-Cures.

-Cures.

0:14:390:14:40

That is a question from my dear old chum Rattus Rattus.

0:14:420:14:46

I thank you.

0:14:460:14:47

One cure for sickness in Tudor times was known as fustigation.

0:14:480:14:52

But what did it involve?

0:14:520:14:54

Was it A, fanning someone

0:14:540:14:56

to give them air,

0:14:560:14:58

B, sitting in a smoke-filled room,

0:14:580:15:00

or C, beating them with a stick?

0:15:000:15:03

What a question. Is it A, B or C?

0:15:060:15:08

Show me now.

0:15:080:15:09

Interesting, Isabel and Harry agree with B,

0:15:100:15:13

Christian out on his own with C.

0:15:130:15:15

Rattus, what's the answer?

0:15:150:15:17

The answer is...

0:15:170:15:19

C, beating them with a stick.

0:15:190:15:21

Christian, your turn to choose a topic.

0:15:210:15:24

-Deaths.

-Deaths.

0:15:240:15:25

See what you make of this one.

0:15:270:15:29

Is it A, nine out of ten, B, seven out of ten, or C, five out of ten?

0:15:440:15:48

Let's see your answers.

0:15:480:15:50

OK, the boys agreeing with B.

0:15:500:15:52

Isabel on her own this time with A.

0:15:520:15:54

Let's find out.

0:15:540:15:56

The answer is A.

0:15:560:15:58

Nine out of ten Tudors died before their 40th birthday.

0:15:580:16:02

Dave, can you remember your 40th birthday?

0:16:020:16:06

Or do your memories not go that far back?

0:16:060:16:09

OK, let's just ignore Rattus.

0:16:100:16:12

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

0:16:120:16:14

-Palaces.

-Palaces. Let's hear the question.

0:16:140:16:17

I had a huge palace built in Surrey,

0:16:180:16:20

that was to be the biggest of all my building projects,

0:16:200:16:23

a celebration of the power of the Tudor dynasty.

0:16:230:16:26

But what did I call it?

0:16:260:16:28

OK. Was it A, Ego Palace,

0:16:350:16:37

was it B, Nonsuch Palace,

0:16:370:16:39

or was it C, Axeminster Palace?

0:16:390:16:42

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:16:420:16:44

OK, total agreement on that one.

0:16:440:16:46

Everybody thinks it's C.

0:16:460:16:47

Are they all right or are they all wrong?

0:16:470:16:50

The answer is B I called it Nonsuch Palace,

0:16:500:16:53

because there's no such palace as grand as it.

0:16:530:16:56

Get it? No such, Nonsuch?

0:16:560:17:00

I don't hear you laughing.

0:17:000:17:01

AWKWARD LAUGHTER

0:17:010:17:04

-That's more like it.

-You don't want to upset him.

0:17:040:17:07

OK, to the final question in this round, and it's a question on tax.

0:17:070:17:11

Let's hear what it is.

0:17:110:17:13

My daughter Elizabeth I enforced a tax which only men could pay.

0:17:130:17:18

But what was it a tax on?

0:17:180:17:19

Was it A, beards, B, hairy backs, or C, man boobs?

0:17:250:17:30

Do you all have an answer in your heads?

0:17:310:17:33

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:17:330:17:36

Christian, you and Isabel have agreed on A,

0:17:360:17:38

Harry has gone for B.

0:17:380:17:39

What's the answer?

0:17:390:17:40

The answer is A, beards.

0:17:400:17:43

Just as well there wasn't a tax on all three.

0:17:430:17:45

Actually, what do I care? Tudor monarchs don't pay tax.

0:17:450:17:48

So at the end of that round,

0:17:490:17:51

Christian and Isabel are level on two points each.

0:17:510:17:54

It's fingers on buzzers for you two.

0:17:540:17:57

Here we go with the tie-break question.

0:17:570:17:59

Beginning with the letter E,

0:17:590:18:00

what is the name of King Henry VIII's son and heir,

0:18:000:18:04

who died as a teenager?

0:18:040:18:05

SNEEZING SOUND EFFECT

0:18:050:18:06

-Edward.

-Edward is absolutely right, Christian.

0:18:060:18:09

Well done. Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:18:090:18:13

So, winning the quiz means that Christian

0:18:130:18:15

is automatically through to play the Tudor game,

0:18:150:18:18

but will he be alone or will the others get to play too?

0:18:180:18:20

Let's find out.

0:18:200:18:22

It's an all play brainy game.

0:18:250:18:28

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

0:18:280:18:30

Elizabeth I liked to look good in her portraits,

0:18:410:18:44

which meant they had to look nothing like her.

0:18:440:18:46

Smallpox scars and years of wearing poisonous lead make-up

0:18:460:18:49

meant her good looks were long lost.

0:18:490:18:52

So Elizabeth made artists

0:18:520:18:53

copy paintings of her as a young woman,

0:18:530:18:55

rather than paint how she really looked.

0:18:550:18:57

It's time to play...

0:18:570:18:58

Your challenge is to assemble two perfect copies

0:19:010:19:04

of an Elizabeth portrait.

0:19:040:19:05

The only problem is, your two puzzles

0:19:050:19:07

are made out of different misshaped pieces.

0:19:070:19:09

Complete your puzzles quicker than the other Horrible Historians

0:19:090:19:12

to win the Year Sphere.

0:19:120:19:13

In three, two, one...

0:19:130:19:15

FOGHORN SOUNDS

0:19:150:19:17

Here we go, then, with Puzzling Portraits.

0:19:170:19:18

Christian in green, Harry in yellow,

0:19:180:19:21

and the rat murderer...

0:19:210:19:22

Oh, sorry, Isabel in brown.

0:19:220:19:25

You have to say the girls are normally

0:19:250:19:27

quite good at this, aren't they, Rattus?

0:19:270:19:29

They're very good at thinking in two areas at once. Multitasking.

0:19:290:19:32

They are very adept at multi-skilling,

0:19:320:19:34

it has to be said, Dave.

0:19:340:19:36

I'm not stereotyping there

0:19:360:19:37

in any way, shape or form.

0:19:370:19:39

Girls are just better than boys in many, many ways.

0:19:390:19:42

Oh, Rattus, we are going to get letters now.

0:19:420:19:44

Please don't write to me, write to him.

0:19:440:19:46

I must say, though, Isabel has made a tremendous start.

0:19:460:19:48

Two portraits well under way.

0:19:480:19:50

That one on the left is all but done.

0:19:500:19:53

I can clearly make out Queen Elizabeth I there,

0:19:530:19:55

smiling in her younger days. Of course,

0:19:550:19:58

as she got older, she got rather less attractive

0:19:580:20:01

than that, it has to be said.

0:20:010:20:02

That's right, and all her teeth fell out.

0:20:020:20:04

So, Harry, here he comes. He's doing extremely well himself.

0:20:040:20:06

Look at this, he's well under way.

0:20:060:20:08

Harry, I'm very impressed with that performance.

0:20:080:20:11

But, look, Isabel, she really is getting the job done here.

0:20:110:20:15

She's doing this very, very well.

0:20:150:20:16

It's a textbook performance in many ways.

0:20:160:20:18

And Harry also doing well.

0:20:180:20:20

Christian, you have to say, is lagging a little bit behind there.

0:20:200:20:24

Isabel really, really getting there now.

0:20:240:20:26

She's doing this extremely well.

0:20:260:20:28

Christian is a long way off,

0:20:280:20:29

there's a bit hanging over the frame on the other side there,

0:20:290:20:32

but he's not going to trouble the winner here

0:20:320:20:35

cos I think the winner is about to be decided.

0:20:350:20:36

She only seems to have three pieces, or four pieces possibly left.

0:20:360:20:40

Harry's doing extremely well, though, wait a minute,

0:20:400:20:42

this could be a late run from Harry.

0:20:420:20:43

I think he probably has left it too late.

0:20:430:20:45

Yes, just one more piece left for Isabel now.

0:20:450:20:48

There it is, she's done it.

0:20:480:20:50

And there she is, celebrating with a double fist pump.

0:20:500:20:53

The slight bounce, the ponytail swish, it's a three-way celebration,

0:20:530:20:58

and it's much deserved.

0:20:580:20:59

Isabel, help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:21:010:21:03

Well done. Isabel, you were absolutely magnificent.

0:21:030:21:06

-Did you find it easy?

-No.

0:21:060:21:08

Have you ever done two puzzles at once before?

0:21:080:21:10

-No.

-Will you be doing two puzzles at once in the future?

0:21:100:21:13

-Never.

-Never.

0:21:130:21:14

That'll be it. That was your one time.

0:21:140:21:16

-Yes.

-Superb.

0:21:160:21:18

In Tudor times, everyone wanted to look like Queen Elizabeth,

0:21:180:21:21

so they all desired flaming red hair, just like hers.

0:21:210:21:26

And you won't believe what one of the ingredients in the dye was?

0:21:260:21:29

I'll take a wild guess, was it wee?

0:21:290:21:31

Yes, wee, how did you know?

0:21:310:21:33

Well, if you find it funny,

0:21:330:21:34

it's probably got something to do

0:21:340:21:36

with either number ones or number twos.

0:21:360:21:38

RATTUS LAUGHS And he laughs again.

0:21:380:21:40

Good. Moving swiftly on, time for the final round,

0:21:400:21:42

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

0:21:420:21:46

It's the Rotten Romans.

0:21:460:21:49

There's no quirky quiz in our final round,

0:21:490:21:50

it's straight to our big all play Roman endgame.

0:21:500:21:54

So, everyone, limber up.

0:21:540:21:56

That's lovely. And then get down that Time Sewer.

0:21:560:21:58

Whenever Roman Emperor Vitellius wasn't eating,

0:22:040:22:07

he liked to be eating.

0:22:070:22:08

Yes, old Vitellius like to have four feasts a day,

0:22:080:22:11

so he needed a lot of feeding. Which is where you come in.

0:22:110:22:14

It's time to play...

0:22:140:22:15

Collect Emperor Vitellius's favourite

0:22:180:22:20

pheasant brain and flamingo tongue pies, grapes, and fish,

0:22:200:22:23

and fling them into his mouth.

0:22:230:22:25

The person who gets the most in their Vitellius' gob

0:22:250:22:27

within the time limit wins the Year Sphere.

0:22:270:22:29

But be warned - halfway through,

0:22:290:22:31

a servant is going to spill a cauldron of garum sauce,

0:22:310:22:34

made out of rotten fish guts.

0:22:340:22:37

-Yummy.

-So things will get mighty slippy.

0:22:370:22:40

Ready, steady, fling those pies!

0:22:400:22:43

FOGHORN SOUNDS

0:22:430:22:44

Here we go, then, with Foul Feast.

0:22:440:22:47

Isabel scores immediately, what a superb score that was.

0:22:470:22:50

Look at that refusal of the fish.

0:22:500:22:52

Oh, dear me.

0:22:520:22:54

The Roman catering supervisor Keepus Maximus

0:22:540:22:57

will be very disappointed there.

0:22:570:22:59

He's handing over...

0:22:590:23:00

He's hit Isabel in the mouth with that pie!

0:23:000:23:02

What is he playing at out there?

0:23:020:23:04

This is the worst catering supervision we've ever seen.

0:23:040:23:07

What a disgrace. Keepus, when he sees this back -

0:23:070:23:09

he's normally such a good performer -

0:23:090:23:11

he'll be very, very disappointed,

0:23:110:23:13

but they're carrying on regardless.

0:23:130:23:14

Well played, the contestants.

0:23:140:23:16

There go the grapes, straight through.

0:23:160:23:18

Look at that!

0:23:180:23:19

That is the traditional custard pie chuck.

0:23:190:23:21

I love to see that, I love to see that.

0:23:210:23:23

I like to see a good custard pie chuck from Harry.

0:23:230:23:26

He's a great exponent of it as well.

0:23:260:23:28

The traditional custard pie chuck.

0:23:280:23:30

I'm very, very pleased to see it here.

0:23:300:23:32

But not with the fish.

0:23:320:23:33

Terrible with the fish, it just doesn't work.

0:23:330:23:35

That's what you want to be doing with the fish,

0:23:350:23:37

end over end, fin over tail.

0:23:370:23:38

Or possibly underarm, it works that way too.

0:23:380:23:41

But no matter how you cut it,

0:23:410:23:43

the bare facts are that Harry is in the lead.

0:23:430:23:45

He's taken the lead and is throwing magnificently.

0:23:450:23:47

We should point out these fish

0:23:480:23:50

have all been line-caught,

0:23:500:23:52

they've not been hauled in

0:23:520:23:53

with a great big stinky net

0:23:530:23:54

that's killed other creatures. Christian draws level.

0:23:540:23:57

We are of course expecting the garum sauce any moment,

0:23:570:24:00

aren't, we Rattus? It's coming very, very soon...

0:24:000:24:02

And it's right on top of them!

0:24:020:24:04

Christian has taken that

0:24:040:24:06

right on top of his head.

0:24:060:24:08

I didn't think I've ever seen anyone

0:24:080:24:10

get drenched in quite such a spectacular way.

0:24:100:24:13

We'll see him in a minute.

0:24:130:24:15

Look at the state of him!

0:24:150:24:17

He is absolutely covered in garum sauce.

0:24:170:24:20

As is poor old Isabel.

0:24:200:24:22

Dear, oh, dear. Harry is rolling around on the floor

0:24:220:24:25

like a naughty puppy. Christian's down.

0:24:250:24:27

Christian is down.

0:24:270:24:29

He's blinking it out of his eyes,

0:24:290:24:31

that rotten fish sauce.

0:24:310:24:32

FOGHORN SOUNDS There's the hooter, it's over.

0:24:320:24:35

Christian and Harry both get Year Spheres.

0:24:350:24:38

But one wonders if any of them will ever stand up again!

0:24:380:24:42

Back you come, everyone. Well done, well done.

0:24:420:24:44

How was that for you?

0:24:440:24:45

-Gungy.

-Gungy?

0:24:450:24:47

Christian, it landed on your head, didn't it?

0:24:470:24:50

-What did it taste like?

-Vinegar.

0:24:500:24:52

Horrible. Christian, if you could take yours first, please.

0:24:520:24:57

And, Harry, collect yours as well, please.

0:24:570:24:59

Despite being a total glutton himself,

0:25:000:25:02

Emperor Vitellius actually killed his own mum...

0:25:020:25:06

by starving her to death.

0:25:060:25:08

The clue's in the name, Horrible Histories.

0:25:080:25:11

Absolutely.

0:25:110:25:12

It's now time to count up those Year Spheres, and remember,

0:25:120:25:14

AD dates are added to your total and BC dates subtracted from it.

0:25:140:25:19

Christian, we are going to start with you.

0:25:190:25:21

Open up that first one.

0:25:210:25:23

1746 AD.

0:25:230:25:26

The Battle of Culloden.

0:25:260:25:27

377 BC, it's bad, but it's not a disaster.

0:25:290:25:34

The death of Hippocrates,

0:25:340:25:35

the father of medicine, that year.

0:25:350:25:37

Let's have a look at the third one.

0:25:370:25:39

That's slightly worse, 4000 BC.

0:25:410:25:44

Stone Age man started farming in Britain

0:25:440:25:47

around that time.

0:25:470:25:48

Christian, you need this one to be a good one.

0:25:480:25:50

It's a good one, but it's not that good.

0:25:510:25:53

It's 122 AD.

0:25:530:25:55

Hadrian's Wall was built that year.

0:25:550:25:58

So, Christian, you have ended up

0:25:580:26:00

with a score of -2509.

0:26:000:26:04

Isabel, it's your turn.

0:26:040:26:06

Let's have a look at your first Sphere, please.

0:26:060:26:08

1348 AD.

0:26:100:26:12

The Black Death hit England that year.

0:26:120:26:14

But it's good news for you.

0:26:140:26:16

Let's have a look at that second Sphere.

0:26:160:26:18

1479 BC.

0:26:200:26:23

The Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut

0:26:230:26:24

came to the throne that year.

0:26:240:26:26

That takes you back into the minus points.

0:26:260:26:28

Let's have a look at your third Sphere.

0:26:280:26:31

It's 1861 AD.

0:26:320:26:35

The death of Queen Victoria's husband,

0:26:350:26:37

Prince Albert.

0:26:370:26:38

That means you've gone into the lead, Isabel,

0:26:380:26:40

and you have a total of 1,730.

0:26:400:26:44

But, Isabel, you can be beaten by Harry.

0:26:440:26:47

Harry, let's have a look at what you've got in that Sphere.

0:26:470:26:49

It's 1014 AD.

0:26:510:26:53

King Sweyn Forkbeard

0:26:530:26:54

became the first Viking King of England that year.

0:26:540:26:57

You've ended up with 1,014 points.

0:26:570:27:00

It's not quite enough. Isabel, you are today's winner.

0:27:000:27:03

And do we have a prize for you?!

0:27:030:27:06

No, seriously, do we have a prize for her?

0:27:060:27:08

Indeed we do, Dave.

0:27:080:27:10

I've sourced some beautiful French sausages

0:27:100:27:13

from a 600-year-old recipe,

0:27:130:27:15

all the way from the picturesque city of Orleans.

0:27:150:27:18

Wow, well, they actually sound rather delicious.

0:27:180:27:21

Specifically from the Siege of Orleans

0:27:210:27:23

during the Hundred Years' War,

0:27:230:27:25

when the trapped French peasants got so hungry

0:27:250:27:28

they ate their own fingers. Bon appetit.

0:27:280:27:31

I should have known.

0:27:310:27:32

Well, con-rat-ulations, Isabel.

0:27:320:27:35

Here you go, Isabel. Sorry it's three fingers on a plinth.

0:27:350:27:38

Please don't eat it.

0:27:380:27:40

It just remains for me to say thanks to Christian,

0:27:400:27:43

to Isabel and to Harry, and no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

0:27:430:27:46

Your growing frustration is thanks enough, Dave.

0:27:460:27:50

-You've been watching Gory Games, goodbye.

-Goodbye.
