# Horrible Histories Gory...

0:00:200:00:22

# ..Games! #

0:00:230:00:24

Hello. Welcome to Horrible Histories Gory Games with him,

0:00:240:00:27

Rattus Rattus and me, Dave Lamb.

0:00:270:00:30

This is the show where...

0:00:300:00:32

-Shouldn't you be Larry Lamb?

-Sorry?

0:00:320:00:35

Well, it's Horrible Histories Gory Games, Rattus Rattus,

0:00:350:00:39

Larry Lamb.

0:00:390:00:40

Dave, it's Dave Lamb!

0:00:400:00:42

Or Mr Lamb, if you like.

0:00:420:00:44

All right, keep your wool on...Larry Lamb.

0:00:440:00:47

This is the show where we test your knowledge of Horrible Histories

0:00:470:00:50

with quirky quizzes and Gory Games,

0:00:500:00:52

so without further interruption from the rat,

0:00:520:00:55

let's meet our Horrible Historians.

0:00:550:00:58

Hello, I'm Joel!

0:00:580:00:59

Hiya, I'm Holly!

0:00:590:01:01

Howdy, I'm Ayanda!

0:01:010:01:02

-Excellent.

-Dave!

-What?

0:01:020:01:04

-Can we play a warm-up game that I've devised?

-No.

0:01:040:01:07

It's from the Victorian era and it's called Tosh For Dosh.

0:01:070:01:11

Have you run any of this past our bosses at CBBC?

0:01:110:01:14

Course not! They might have said no!

0:01:140:01:16

-Let's have the buckets.

-Hang on.

0:01:160:01:18

What are you up to?

0:01:180:01:19

-It's just history, Larry.

-It's Dave!

0:01:190:01:22

All right. In 1865, Joseph Bazalgette built his famous London sewers,

0:01:220:01:28

or as we know them, Rat City!

0:01:280:01:31

Poor Victorians would descend into the sewers

0:01:310:01:33

and go toshing,

0:01:330:01:35

wading through the poo to look for dropped coins.

0:01:350:01:39

All you lot have to do

0:01:390:01:40

is find the five shilling coins I've hidden in your bucket of poop.

0:01:400:01:44

-And your time starts...

-No, no, no. No way.

0:01:440:01:47

We are not having people wading through excrement on my show.

0:01:470:01:51

Someone will have to. I dropped your car keys in one of the buckets.

0:01:510:01:55

-JOEL LAUGHS

-Oh, brilliant.

0:01:550:01:56

Thanks, Rattus. That's just wonderful(!)

0:01:560:01:59

-Which one was it?

-I think it might be the middle bucket.

0:01:590:02:02

It MIGHT be the middle bucket? Brilliant.

0:02:020:02:04

-SQUELCH!

-Oh, for heaven's sake!

0:02:040:02:06

Can I get some towels, please?

0:02:060:02:08

-Towels for Larry, please.

-It's Dave!

0:02:080:02:11

# Gory Games! #

0:02:110:02:13

Can I just say that it's NEVER a good idea

0:02:130:02:15

to put your hand in poo.

0:02:150:02:17

Oh! Good night!

0:02:180:02:20

Joel, Holly and Ayanda, you're playing to win Year Spheres.

0:02:200:02:23

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date.

0:02:230:02:26

At the end of the show, your dates will be added up,

0:02:260:02:29

with AD dates being added to your total

0:02:290:02:31

and BC dates subtracted from it.

0:02:310:02:33

So if these were your Year Spheres, your total would be...

0:02:330:02:36

Rattus? Sorry, Rattus. Your total would be, Rattus?

0:02:360:02:39

That was warm and smelly. I liked it under there!

0:02:390:02:42

My heart says 4, but my head says 12.

0:02:440:02:47

It's 735.

0:02:470:02:49

Typical! That's what my elbow said and I just didn't listen to it.

0:02:490:02:52

At the end of the show,

0:02:520:02:53

the person with the highest score will win a special historical prize

0:02:530:02:57

picked out by my furry friend.

0:02:570:02:59

Something that will truly make your friends jealous.

0:02:590:03:02

Providing your friends are sewer-dwelling rodents.

0:03:020:03:05

-Well, I know mine are.

-Yes.

0:03:050:03:08

Right, let's get going. To find out what this round's about,

0:03:080:03:11

over to the gory grid.

0:03:110:03:13

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:03:130:03:15

Your four Middle Ages topics are...

0:03:150:03:17

Joel, you pick first in this round.

0:03:230:03:25

I think I'll pick Knights.

0:03:250:03:28

That is a question from my dear friend Rattus Rattus.

0:03:280:03:31

True or false?

0:03:310:03:32

In 1291, some knights tried to storm the city of Acre.

0:03:320:03:38

They approached at night, but their surprise attack went wrong

0:03:380:03:42

when one of the knights stepped on a cat,

0:03:420:03:44

which woke up the defenders.

0:03:440:03:46

Is that true or is that false?

0:03:460:03:49

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:03:490:03:51

Joel and Holly have agreed with true.

0:03:510:03:53

Ayanda has gone for false. Rattus,

0:03:530:03:55

put us out of our misery. What's the answer?

0:03:550:03:58

-False!

-Yes!

0:03:580:04:00

It all went wrong when one of the knights

0:04:000:04:02

fell head first into a toilet ditch. Ha-ha-ha!

0:04:020:04:05

He made such a racket he woke up all the defenders.

0:04:050:04:09

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:04:090:04:11

-Oh, I'll shut up.

-Holly, it's your turn to pick next.

0:04:110:04:14

-Cures, please.

-Cures.

0:04:140:04:17

True or false - one Middle Ages cure for the Black Death

0:04:170:04:21

involved shaving a live chicken's bottom

0:04:210:04:24

and strapping it to your armpit?

0:04:240:04:26

Very good. Holly and Joel agreeing again.

0:04:260:04:29

Ayanda out on his own with false. Let's see what the answer is.

0:04:290:04:33

It's true!

0:04:330:04:34

-And it sure worked for me!

-SHE COUGHS

0:04:340:04:38

THUMP!

0:04:380:04:39

Or maybe not.

0:04:390:04:41

Ayanda, your turn to pick a topic. All square at the moment.

0:04:410:04:44

Fashion.

0:04:440:04:45

True or false -

0:04:450:04:48

in the 1400s it became fashionable for women to wear tall, pointy hats

0:04:480:04:53

called steeples.

0:04:530:04:55

The monk, Thomas Conecte, said all women should wear them.

0:04:550:04:59

Let's have a look at those answers.

0:04:590:05:01

Once again, Holly and Joel are agreeing.

0:05:010:05:03

They've gone for false.

0:05:030:05:04

Ayanda's gone with true. Let's see who's right.

0:05:040:05:07

It's false.

0:05:070:05:09

He said, "They're a sign of the deadly sin of pride.

0:05:090:05:13

"Burn them and wear humble peasant caps instead."

0:05:130:05:17

Well, there we are. There's one question left in this round.

0:05:170:05:21

Everybody can still feasibly win.

0:05:210:05:24

The question is on Burps.

0:05:240:05:26

True or false - it was considered acceptable in the Middle Ages

0:05:260:05:31

to burp at the dinner table?

0:05:310:05:33

Everybody has gone for true.

0:05:330:05:36

It's a clean sweep.

0:05:360:05:38

Are you all right or are you all wrong?

0:05:380:05:40

It's true. You could burp at the table,

0:05:400:05:43

as it was a sign of enjoying the meal.

0:05:430:05:45

BURP!

0:05:450:05:47

This, however, is not the Middle Ages.

0:05:470:05:50

BURP! Sorry.

0:05:500:05:52

-Oh, dear.

-RATTUS BREAKS WIND

0:05:520:05:54

That's even worse.

0:05:540:05:55

OK, that's the end of that round and I can see from

0:05:550:05:59

the abacus scoreboard in front of me

0:05:590:06:00

that Joel and Holly have tied on three.

0:06:000:06:03

Ayanda, you're not in the buzzer round.

0:06:030:06:05

You're history just for now, but don't panic. Plenty of time.

0:06:050:06:08

You two, fingers on buzzers. We're going to the tiebreak question.

0:06:080:06:12

Beginning with the letter M,

0:06:120:06:15

what is the name for the broad ditch filled with water

0:06:150:06:19

that surrounds a castle? Holly.

0:06:190:06:21

A moat?

0:06:210:06:22

It is a moat. Congratulations, you get to pick a Year Sphere.

0:06:220:06:26

Like a hook-handed pirate clearing his bogies, please do it carefully.

0:06:260:06:30

Good choice, bad choice? Who knows?

0:06:300:06:33

Excuse I! Push, push, push, push.

0:06:330:06:35

These could contain a Stone Age date worth millions of minus points.

0:06:350:06:39

Winning the quiz means Holly

0:06:390:06:40

is through to play the Middle Ages game,

0:06:400:06:43

but will she be alone or will everyone else get to play?

0:06:430:06:47

It's an All Play Gory Game!

0:06:500:06:53

Off down the time sewer with the lot of you.

0:06:530:06:56

-Yes!

-Lead on, Ayanda.

0:06:560:06:58

William The Conqueror was a very unpleasant man

0:07:000:07:03

and his funeral was an appropriately unpleasant occasion.

0:07:030:07:06

Servants stole his treasure and the church burned down.

0:07:060:07:09

It's time to play...

0:07:090:07:10

You are William's servants and your challenge is to take his treasure

0:07:130:07:17

and put it in your chest.

0:07:170:07:18

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

0:07:180:07:22

Whoever collects the most pieces wins the Year Sphere

0:07:220:07:25

and you'd better be quick because the church is burning down!

0:07:250:07:29

-Your time starts now.

-BUZZ!

0:07:290:07:31

Here we go then, with Yuckaroo.

0:07:320:07:34

They're looting a tomb and someone is going to explode.

0:07:340:07:38

It's Holly who opens her account with a little goblet there,

0:07:380:07:42

a little goblet stolen from William The Conqueror.

0:07:420:07:45

Joel straight back at her with a candlestick of his own,

0:07:450:07:48

but Holly has a plate.

0:07:480:07:50

2-1. Nothing for Ayanda as yet.

0:07:500:07:52

Look at this, Joel is levelling it up.

0:07:520:07:55

Two apiece. They're showing themselves

0:07:550:07:57

to be very good at stealing, these two!

0:07:570:08:00

Superb effort. Ayanda yet to score.

0:08:000:08:02

Ho-ho, look out! Holly's got herself a candlestick.

0:08:020:08:07

She's back in the lead. Readjusts her glasses there, sensibly.

0:08:070:08:12

The reason she's wearing those is because

0:08:120:08:14

someone is about to explode.

0:08:140:08:16

And Ayanda's off the mark, which is lovely.

0:08:160:08:18

There goes Sir William The Conqueror!

0:08:180:08:21

He's exploded everywhere and Joel felt the full force

0:08:210:08:26

of those intestines as they rained down on his head

0:08:260:08:29

while he tried to steal a trinket. What a massive explosion!

0:08:290:08:32

-It really went up, didn't it, Rattus?

-It certainly did.

0:08:320:08:36

There are guts, gore and innards everywhere!

0:08:360:08:39

That was quite extraordinary, but back now to the theft,

0:08:390:08:43

which is the main part of this game.

0:08:430:08:46

I think Ayanda, maybe, has been stealing treasure

0:08:460:08:49

that's not colour-coded for him. I'm concerned that I can see green

0:08:490:08:54

in his chest, there.

0:08:540:08:55

I shouldn't be able to see green in his chest.

0:08:550:08:58

-I should be able to see yellow, and yellow alone, Rattus.

-It's...

0:08:580:09:02

Look out! I'm sorry to cut in, but the building's on fire!

0:09:020:09:05

They have to get out quick! The fire's taking hold!

0:09:050:09:08

Someone get those kids out of there

0:09:080:09:10

-before the building burns down!

-BUZZ

0:09:100:09:12

It's ended up with an absolute dead heat between Holly and Joel.

0:09:120:09:16

Joel, you are very, very fast!

0:09:190:09:21

-Thank you.

-Like a rat up a drainpipe.

0:09:210:09:23

-You'd know about that, Rattus.

-Being one, yes.

-Ayanda, you were

0:09:230:09:26

only supposed to get the yellow treasure.

0:09:260:09:29

You managed to get green and brown!

0:09:290:09:30

-Yeah.

-Well, I can tell you,

0:09:300:09:32

because of his generosity,

0:09:320:09:34

Ayanda only managed one piece of his own colour,

0:09:340:09:37

but the other two of you tied with five pieces each!

0:09:370:09:42

So, Joel, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:09:420:09:44

Holly, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:09:460:09:48

Lovely.

0:09:480:09:50

Onwards, and to find out what's up next,

0:09:500:09:52

it's over to the gory grid.

0:09:520:09:54

It's the Rotten Romans.

0:09:550:09:57

Here are your all-important Roman topics.

0:09:570:10:00

Holly, your turn to pick first this time.

0:10:060:10:08

Sport, please.

0:10:080:10:09

Here comes your question, ready or not.

0:10:100:10:13

Is it A, is it B, or is it C?

0:10:280:10:30

Well, there we go.

0:10:300:10:31

The boys agreeing on B, Holly going for C.

0:10:310:10:35

The answer is...

0:10:350:10:36

C - 250,000 people!

0:10:360:10:40

So that's a point for Holly.

0:10:400:10:42

Let's put that into perspective.

0:10:420:10:44

That is almost three times the size of Wembley Stadium.

0:10:440:10:47

-Or about the size of my immediate family.

-Yes.

0:10:470:10:51

-Nightmare at Christmas!

-It must be.

0:10:510:10:53

Holly, you have taken the lead in this round.

0:10:530:10:56

Ayanda, your turn to pick a topic.

0:10:560:10:58

-Roman Life.

-Oh, goodie!

0:10:580:11:00

This is a prop question.

0:11:000:11:02

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:11:040:11:05

I know what this is!

0:11:050:11:07

What was this sponge on a stick used for?

0:11:070:11:10

A - cleaning windows, B - cleaning gladiator armour

0:11:100:11:15

or C - wiping bottoms? Let's see your answers now.

0:11:150:11:18

Well, there wasn't much doubt there.

0:11:200:11:22

They were grinning the moment the prop came out.

0:11:220:11:25

They're absolutely right.

0:11:250:11:27

It was for wiping bottoms.

0:11:270:11:29

Ha-ha-ha! Can't hold it any longer!

0:11:290:11:31

-Ha-ha-ha!

-He just loves bottoms!

0:11:310:11:34

Can't help himself.

0:11:340:11:35

Let me award your points. There you go.

0:11:350:11:38

Joel, pick a topic.

0:11:380:11:40

I think I'll pick food.

0:11:400:11:43

Which of these could you buy as a snack at the Roman Colosseum?

0:11:440:11:47

A- boiled kittens,

0:11:470:11:49

B - spiced budgies,

0:11:490:11:51

or C - roast dormice?

0:11:510:11:54

There we go. Holly and Ayanda going for C.

0:11:550:11:58

Joel out on his own with B.

0:11:580:11:59

Let's hear what the answer is.

0:11:590:12:02

C - roast dormice.

0:12:020:12:04

They're best if fed on walnuts, acorns and chestnuts.

0:12:040:12:08

Mmm, nutty!

0:12:080:12:10

There we go, points for Holly and Ayanda.

0:12:100:12:12

One topic left in this round, a question about Caesar.

0:12:120:12:16

After a war in Turkey, Julius Caesar famously said,

0:12:160:12:21

"Veni, Vidi, Vici,"

0:12:210:12:22

but what does the Latin mean?

0:12:220:12:25

A - I came, I saw, I conquered,

0:12:250:12:28

B - I came, I saw, I got a cold,

0:12:280:12:32

or C - I came, I saw, I killed?

0:12:320:12:36

Let's see what you've got. Interesting.

0:12:360:12:38

Joel and Holly going for B,

0:12:380:12:40

Ayanda going for A. Let's hear what the answer is.

0:12:400:12:43

A - I came, I saw, I conquered.

0:12:430:12:47

Oh, Caesar was such a hero!

0:12:470:12:51

Shame about his huge nose.

0:12:510:12:53

-That's harsh!

-Isn't it harsh? Very harsh.

0:12:530:12:57

Joel, I'm afraid for now you're history, but Holly and Ayanda,

0:12:570:13:01

you've tied on three, so we go to the buzzer question.

0:13:010:13:03

Here it comes. With the initials JC,

0:13:030:13:06

which famous Roman leader defeated the Gauls, invaded Britain

0:13:060:13:11

and was murdered in Rome?

0:13:110:13:12

-Holly.

-Julius Caesar?

0:13:120:13:14

Julius Caesar is the right answer. Well done!

0:13:140:13:17

You've won another Year Sphere. Please go and collect it.

0:13:170:13:20

As the quiz winner, you are through to play our Roman game,

0:13:200:13:26

but will you be playing on your own or will everybody join in?

0:13:260:13:29

It's an All Play Gory Game! It's off down the time sewer

0:13:330:13:37

-with the lot of you!

-Down the stinkhole! Yeah!

0:13:370:13:40

When Romans wanted to conquer an enemy city,

0:13:430:13:45

there were virtually no lengths they wouldn't go to.

0:13:450:13:48

It's time to play...

0:13:480:13:49

Romans would use catapults to fire all sorts of awful things,

0:13:530:13:56

such as heavy rocks, hives of stinging bees

0:13:560:13:59

and even the severed heads of dead enemies.

0:13:590:14:02

Your challenge is to fire as many missiles

0:14:020:14:04

into your fortress target as possible.

0:14:040:14:06

The person who gets the most in the time limit wins the Year Sphere.

0:14:060:14:10

So, catapults at the ready! In three, two, one!

0:14:100:14:13

-HOOTER BLARES

-Here we go with Savage Siege.

0:14:130:14:16

And in this our contestants have to catapult a number

0:14:160:14:20

of different objects towards a basket.

0:14:200:14:22

We see Joel has nailed one right from the off.

0:14:220:14:25

I think interestingly he's swapped straight to a beehive.

0:14:250:14:28

He should have stuck with heads, they were working.

0:14:280:14:31

But beehives are working for Holly all right

0:14:310:14:33

as she levels it up with Joel.

0:14:330:14:35

That's superb. What an excellent start!

0:14:350:14:37

Oh, she's in the lead! A head there from Holly puts her into the lead.

0:14:400:14:44

Ayanda also off the mark now. So that's good, they're all...

0:14:440:14:47

They're all scoring, which is what we like to see.

0:14:470:14:50

And in fact they're all level now. So, this is tight.

0:14:500:14:53

Look at the concentration on Ayanda's face there,

0:14:530:14:56

as he lets loose another stone.

0:14:560:14:57

Doesn't hit its target. Two apiece. Level pegging.

0:14:570:15:00

I used to know some of those rocks that Ayanda's shooting there.

0:15:000:15:04

Some of them were shy, but now they're a little BOULDER.

0:15:040:15:08

Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha! Little BOULDER! Carry on with the narrating.

0:15:080:15:13

Joel's back in it now. He gets his third point.

0:15:140:15:18

Well, this is tremendous stuff.

0:15:180:15:19

They really are getting the hang of this very nicely.

0:15:190:15:22

And it's very, very close.

0:15:220:15:25

Holly now, crucially with 30 seconds remaining,

0:15:250:15:28

nails herself another head.

0:15:280:15:31

But Ayanda takes the lead again, three, four, five, there it is!

0:15:310:15:34

Holly's back at him! This is nip and tuck! It's incredibly close.

0:15:340:15:37

Holly's now in the...

0:15:370:15:39

Oh, they've both scored within a millisecond of each other there!

0:15:390:15:43

Six points apiece. Incredibly close. That one goes way over the top

0:15:430:15:46

and Ayanda scores. Could that be crucial? Could that be crucial?

0:15:460:15:50

Joel now thinking about mounting a comeback.

0:15:500:15:52

-HOOTER BLARES

-Ayanda scores another one!

0:15:520:15:54

Just on the hooter! And he takes it eight, six, five.

0:15:540:15:58

And the winner of the catapult challenge, with eight points,

0:15:580:16:03

-was Ayanda.

-Yeah!

-And doesn't he like that!

0:16:030:16:06

Ayanda, help yourself to a Year Sphere. Well done.

0:16:060:16:09

The most powerful Roman catapult was called an onager,

0:16:090:16:13

which is Latin for wild donkey.

0:16:130:16:15

Because it kicked like a donkey, hard enough to knock down walls.

0:16:150:16:19

-I was once kicked by a wild donkey.

-In the head by any chance?

0:16:190:16:23

-How did you know?

-Lucky guess.

-Tuh!

0:16:230:16:25

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

0:16:250:16:28

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:16:280:16:31

Here are your four Tudor topics.

0:16:310:16:33

Ayanda, it's your turn to choose first this time.

0:16:370:16:41

Henry.

0:16:410:16:43

What did I found in 1534 that is still going today?

0:16:430:16:46

Is that A, B or C? Show me now.

0:16:520:16:54

Absolute agreement. Everyone's gone for B.

0:16:540:16:58

Are they right or wrong?

0:16:580:16:59

The answer is B.

0:16:590:17:01

I founded the Church of England.

0:17:010:17:03

Basically, it was all about getting rid of one wife

0:17:030:17:05

so I could marry the next. Story of my life really. Ha-ha!

0:17:050:17:09

Very well played, you three. Everyone got a point there.

0:17:090:17:12

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

-Football.

0:17:120:17:16

-Prop question.

-Prop question! Prop question!

0:17:160:17:20

This is a Tudor football made out of a pig's bladder.

0:17:200:17:22

How many players were on a Tudor football team?

0:17:220:17:28

Let's see your answer, please.

0:17:340:17:36

Everybody's gone for C. I can tell you, you're right,

0:17:360:17:40

the villages would compete against each other.

0:17:400:17:42

There was no referee, and lots of people got injured. Two points each.

0:17:420:17:48

-Two questions remaining. Holly, your turn to pick a topic.

-Marriage.

0:17:480:17:52

See what you make of this one.

0:17:520:17:54

How did Tudor women show they were unmarried?

0:17:540:17:57

A - they stuck signs saying "Unmarried" to their foreheads.

0:17:570:18:01

B - they didn't wear bonnets.

0:18:010:18:04

Or C - they wore aprons.

0:18:040:18:06

Let's see those answers now, please. Well, Joel and Ayanda going for C.

0:18:060:18:11

Holly going for B.

0:18:110:18:12

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:18:120:18:15

B. To show they were unmarried, Tudor women didn't wear bonnets.

0:18:150:18:20

Well done, Holly. That means if you get this next question right,

0:18:200:18:23

you will have won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:18:230:18:26

But if she were to get it wrong, you boys could tie this round up.

0:18:260:18:30

The final question is on punishments.

0:18:300:18:32

What was the Tudor punishment for poisoning someone?

0:18:320:18:36

A - being crushed under a stone.

0:18:360:18:38

B - being poisoned.

0:18:380:18:40

Or C - being boiled alive.

0:18:400:18:42

Well done, OK. So Holly and Ayanda going for B, Joel for C.

0:18:420:18:50

The answer is C.

0:18:500:18:52

The Tudor punishment for poisoning someone was to be boiled alive.

0:18:520:18:56

Way too soft if you ask me.

0:18:560:18:58

So, at the end of that round, Joel and Holly are all square.

0:18:580:19:02

Ayanda, you have to sit this out. We're going to a buzzer question.

0:19:020:19:06

Fingers on buzzers, Joel and Holly.

0:19:060:19:08

With the initials AB,

0:19:080:19:10

who was Henry VIII's second wife who had her head chopped...

0:19:100:19:13

Pppprrrtttt!

0:19:130:19:15

-Holly.

-Anne Boleyn.

-Anne Boleyn is right.

0:19:150:19:17

Holly, you've won yourself another Year Sphere. Collect it now, please.

0:19:170:19:22

OK, Holly, you're through to play the Tudor game.

0:19:220:19:25

Will it be an all-play or will it be a single-play game? Let's find out.

0:19:250:19:29

It's an all-play brainy game. What a lot of all-play games we're having!

0:19:330:19:37

Get down that Time Sewer, the lot of you.

0:19:370:19:39

Elizabeth I liked to look good in her portraits,

0:19:440:19:47

which meant her portraits looked nothing like her.

0:19:470:19:49

Poisonous, lead-based make-up had ruined Elizabeth's skin,

0:19:490:19:53

so she preferred to have portraits of her younger self copied,

0:19:530:19:56

rather than have artists paint how she really looked.

0:19:560:19:59

It's time to play...

0:19:590:20:01

Puzzling Portraits.

0:20:010:20:02

Your challenge is to make two perfect copies

0:20:020:20:05

of an Elizabeth portrait.

0:20:050:20:07

But your two puzzles are made out of differently shaped pieces.

0:20:070:20:11

Complete your puzzles quicker than the others

0:20:110:20:14

to win the Year Sphere.

0:20:140:20:15

-In three, two, one.

-HOOTER BLARES

0:20:150:20:18

Here we go with Puzzling Portraits. Two identical portraits

0:20:180:20:22

of Queen Elizabeth I, but with different-sized pieces.

0:20:220:20:27

So two jigsaws at once effectively.

0:20:270:20:29

Ayanda seems to be progressing nicely with his right-hand portrait.

0:20:290:20:35

The trick to this game is to graft on an extra pair of hands

0:20:350:20:38

to your body before the game, so that you have a better chance.

0:20:380:20:43

Interesting tactics, Rattus. Completely useless obviously.

0:20:430:20:46

But interesting nonetheless.

0:20:460:20:48

Dave, you're probably the only person old enough to have lived in Britain

0:20:480:20:52

during the reigns of both Queen Elizabeths, which one was the best?

0:20:520:20:56

I'm not dignifying that with a response.

0:20:560:20:58

It was the second one. Back to the game now, though!

0:20:590:21:04

And Joel, look at him, going very nicely.

0:21:040:21:07

Two portraits in operation at once.

0:21:070:21:09

Ayanda, having finished his first, now working on his second.

0:21:090:21:12

I don't know what's happened to Holly. She's a long way behind.

0:21:120:21:16

It's between the boys now as we watch this clash of styles.

0:21:160:21:20

This battle between two techniques. The double-handed version from Joel,

0:21:200:21:24

the single-single approach from Ayanda.

0:21:240:21:27

It's going to be incredibly close! They've got two pieces left apiece!

0:21:270:21:31

Joel's going to be there first! He's done it. He just beats Ayanda to it.

0:21:310:21:36

Holly, stop that.

0:21:360:21:38

Welcome back. That was so close. Joel, take a Year Sphere.

0:21:380:21:43

Do you know why you never see Elizabeth smiling in a portrait?

0:21:430:21:46

-Because she had rotten teeth?

-Precisely!

0:21:460:21:49

Strange, because she cleaned her teeth regularly with sugar.

0:21:490:21:53

-Urgh!

-Sugar toothpaste? That's a little counter-productive.

0:21:530:21:56

-It'll be like using mud as soap.

-What's wrong with that?

0:21:560:21:59

OK. Time for the final round.

0:21:590:22:03

It's over to the Gory Grid one last time to find out who we've got.

0:22:030:22:06

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day!

0:22:060:22:10

No quirky quiz in our final round, straight to our big all-play game.

0:22:100:22:14

And what a scary one we've got for you.

0:22:140:22:17

-Everyone, get down that Time Sewer once again.

-Let's go!

-Let's do it.

0:22:170:22:21

-Aaargh!

-Geronimo!

0:22:210:22:24

When Queen Victoria was no more than a child,

0:22:280:22:30

the monstrous crime of grave-robbing was quite common.

0:22:300:22:34

Dead bodies were sold to surgeons, keen to experiment on them.

0:22:340:22:37

It's time to play...

0:22:370:22:39

You are a rotten robber. Your challenge -

0:22:410:22:44

to steal three bodies from the graveyard,

0:22:440:22:46

get them through the railings, onto the carts,

0:22:460:22:48

find the key to the cemetery gate, and get them to the surgeon's table.

0:22:480:22:52

-If you hear this noise...

-WHISTLE BLOWS

0:22:520:22:54

..then you must hide in the cemetery so the policeman doesn't spot you.

0:22:540:22:58

A second whistle means you can go.

0:22:580:23:00

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

0:23:000:23:04

and grab their dodgy money is the winner. In three, two, one...

0:23:040:23:08

HOOTER BLARES

0:23:080:23:10

Through the metal railings to start. Grab that body. Oh, the indignity!

0:23:100:23:14

Look at these bodies being wrestled through the railings.

0:23:140:23:17

Thrown down on their trolleys.

0:23:170:23:20

-Some of these dead bodies look in terrible shape.

-Extremely.

0:23:200:23:23

That is the fate of a dead body, to deteriorate over time

0:23:230:23:28

-and look worse with every passing moment.

-You're absolutely right.

0:23:280:23:32

Holly has stolen a key from her dead body and is opening the gates.

0:23:320:23:35

She's successful,

0:23:350:23:37

and plops her first corpse onto the surgeon's table!

0:23:370:23:40

Joel seconds behind her. This is very close.

0:23:400:23:44

Ayanda falling behind the other two, but there's still time to catch up.

0:23:440:23:48

Holly onto her second as Ayanda delivers his first.

0:23:480:23:51

She yanked that through! Grabbed it by the ankle and yanked it.

0:23:510:23:55

-Unceremoniously yanked!

-It was awful.

0:23:550:23:58

It is awful, really, what's happening here.

0:23:580:24:02

Grave are being robbed by children! That's excellent stuff.

0:24:020:24:06

-WHISTLE BLOWS

-Holly is unnervingly good at this.

0:24:060:24:09

The policeman's here, so they've gone into hiding.

0:24:090:24:12

Here comes the policeman, having a good look round.

0:24:120:24:15

If he were to spot them, they would be in deep, deep trouble.

0:24:150:24:19

-And what a big hat he's got.

-He's a very serious-looking individual.

0:24:190:24:22

Then he is a policeman. He's gone. Whoever he was, he's gone.

0:24:220:24:26

They can come back out and keep stealing bodies.

0:24:260:24:29

That's exactly what Joel and Ayanda are doing. A body apiece.

0:24:290:24:35

Joel's doing very well, right up the far end. There's Holly.

0:24:350:24:38

Look at that, there's the second body delivered.

0:24:380:24:41

Holly's in the lead, she's really yanked that one through by one leg.

0:24:410:24:45

They manipulate the bodies into extraordinary shapes!

0:24:450:24:48

-I'd pay good money to a chiropractor for that.

-I'm sure you would, Rattus.

0:24:480:24:52

In fact, you have on many occasions.

0:24:520:24:55

Here comes Holly, this is her final body! She's there!

0:24:550:24:58

She's picked up the dodgy money. Just get through the railings now...

0:24:580:25:03

She's won it! That money can be spent however she likes.

0:25:030:25:07

Probably on a good solicitor, Dave.

0:25:070:25:09

Well done, everyone. Holly, pick yourself up your final Year Sphere.

0:25:120:25:16

Tremendous performance, really excellent.

0:25:160:25:20

It's time to count up those Year Spheres.

0:25:200:25:23

Remember, the AD dates are added to your total,

0:25:230:25:26

and the BC dates are subtracted from it.

0:25:260:25:29

The fact that you don't have the most spheres

0:25:290:25:31

doesn't mean you're not going to win.

0:25:310:25:34

Joel, open up that first Year Sphere.

0:25:340:25:37

Oh, dear me. 9,000 BC.

0:25:370:25:42

Stone-age man started using bow and arrow around about then.

0:25:420:25:46

That's not what you were hoping for. The other one...

0:25:460:25:49

-Please do not be a BC!

-Oh!

0:25:490:25:51

-Oh, come on!

-3,150 BC,

0:25:510:25:55

the start of Ancient Egypt.

0:25:550:25:58

You've ended up with a score of minus 12,150. Bad luck, Joel.

0:25:580:26:04

Holly, let's see how you're getting on.

0:26:040:26:06

64 AD.

0:26:060:26:08

That was the year Rome burned down.

0:26:080:26:11

1492 AD.

0:26:110:26:13

Christopher Columbus discovered the new world.

0:26:130:26:16

793 AD, Vikings attack the Lindisfarne monastery.

0:26:160:26:22

1665 AD, the plague! Let's have a look at the last one.

0:26:220:26:27

-1871 AD!

-Oh, come on!

0:26:270:26:31

The year that bank holidays were invented.

0:26:310:26:34

Holly, you have a tremendous score of 5,885.

0:26:340:26:41

Ayanda. It's slightly forlorn, the hope here.

0:26:410:26:44

And you got 264 BC.

0:26:440:26:46

That, of course, was the first Roman Gladiator games.

0:26:460:26:49

But it does mean that today's winner,

0:26:490:26:52

with 5,885 points is Holly, who wins the star prize.

0:26:520:26:57

What's the big prize then, Rattus?

0:26:570:27:00

Today's prize is a real treat to behold.

0:27:000:27:03

In fact, it's been HOLED already! Ha ha ha!

0:27:030:27:07

Yes, all the way from the Stone Age,

0:27:070:27:09

it's your very own trepanned skull.

0:27:090:27:14

It's had a hole knocked in the side to release the evil spirits.

0:27:140:27:17

-Those cavemen, eh? Ha ha!

-Well done, Rattus. The head of a dead man.

0:27:170:27:21

-Yet another terrible prize.

-I thought you'd like it. After all,

0:27:210:27:25

-you have a photo of an ancient skull in your dressing room.

-That's me.

0:27:250:27:29

LAUGHTER Whoops!

0:27:290:27:32

Just remains for me to say thanks to our champion Holly,

0:27:320:27:35

to our gallant runners-up Joel and Ayanda.

0:27:350:27:37

-Yeah!

-And no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

-My pleasure.

0:27:370:27:42

This has been Gory Games. Goodbye.

0:27:420:27:44

# Was that show messy enough for you?

0:27:450:27:48

# Or would you have preferred a little more poo?

0:27:480:27:51
