# Horrible Histories Gory...Games. #

0:00:200:00:24

Hello and welcome to Gory Games.

0:00:240:00:26

-I'm Dave Lamb.

-And I'm Dave Lamb.

0:00:260:00:29

-No, you're not, you're Rattus Rattus.

-Not any more.

0:00:290:00:32

Turns out you were getting paid more than me, so I've changed my name

0:00:320:00:36

to Dave Lamb so that we quite literally have the same contract.

0:00:360:00:40

-You don't think this will cause confusion?

-I wouldn't think so.

0:00:400:00:43

-Can we get on with the show, please?

-DAVE AND RATTUS: Yes, of course.

0:00:430:00:46

BOTH: He means me.

0:00:460:00:49

BOTH: This is the show where we test your knowledge

0:00:490:00:52

of Horrible Histories with quirky quizzes and, of course, Gory Games.

0:00:520:00:57

This is going to be a very long show.

0:00:570:00:59

BOTH: Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:00:590:01:02

Hi, I'm Kirsty.

0:01:020:01:04

Hi, I'm Oliver.

0:01:040:01:05

-Hi, I'm Hannah.

-Excellent, they're all here.

0:01:050:01:08

Right, it's time for a warm-up game all of my very own that I call...

0:01:080:01:13

No, no, sorry,

0:01:130:01:15

we've cut this bit because you always do something inappropriate.

0:01:150:01:18

No, I've learned my lesson, honestly.

0:01:180:01:20

Today's game is just about hairdressing.

0:01:200:01:23

Normal hairdressing?

0:01:230:01:25

Of normal human hair?

0:01:250:01:28

-Proceed.

-Thank you. It's based on events in Durham

0:01:280:01:33

back in 1006, when the local English women offered to wash and comb

0:01:330:01:37

the hair of the defeated Scottish army.

0:01:370:01:40

-That was kind of them.

-Yes.

0:01:400:01:41

And just like those kind women did back then,

0:01:410:01:45

you'll be washing and combing the hair of the Scottish soldiers...

0:01:450:01:49

whose heads have been cut off and stuck on spikes.

0:01:490:01:52

-So, are we all ready?

-No, no way, not on my watch.

0:01:520:01:56

I'm not having children

0:01:560:01:57

giving beauty treatments to decapitated heads!

0:01:570:02:00

-What if I stuck them back on the bodies?

-That's even worse.

0:02:000:02:03

Oh, you are so boring! You know what? You give Dave Lamb a bad name.

0:02:030:02:08

From now on, you be Dull Dave and I'll be Fun Dave.

0:02:080:02:11

Fine. Moving on.

0:02:110:02:14

Right, Kirsty, Oliver, Hannah,

0:02:140:02:16

you are winning playing to win Year Spheres.

0:02:160:02:19

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date,

0:02:190:02:21

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

0:02:210:02:24

with the AD dates being added to your total

0:02:240:02:28

and the BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:02:280:02:32

-So clever!

-It's very clever.

0:02:320:02:34

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

0:02:340:02:38

Oh...it's between six and 300.

0:02:380:02:41

-Can you be more specific?

-Yes, but I think you should do some of the work.

0:02:410:02:45

-It's 735.

-Correct!

0:02:450:02:47

Of course, the person with the highest year score at the end

0:02:470:02:50

of the show will take home a unique historical prize.

0:02:500:02:54

The prize I've found for you is so good that

0:02:540:02:57

I was tempted to keep it myself.

0:02:570:02:59

We're looking at something at least as good as rotten potato peelings.

0:02:590:03:03

Rotten potato peelings? Where? Where?!

0:03:030:03:06

Right, let's get cracking.

0:03:060:03:07

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

0:03:070:03:12

It's the Gorgeous Georgians!

0:03:120:03:15

So, four questions on Gorgeous Georgians coming up.

0:03:150:03:18

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

0:03:180:03:22

And your four Georgian topics are...

0:03:220:03:24

Kirsty, you get to pick first in this round. Which is it going to be?

0:03:300:03:34

Can I go for heads, please?

0:03:340:03:36

Heads.

0:03:360:03:38

That is a prop question...

0:03:380:03:41

and it's another severed head!

0:03:410:03:43

This is in fact a French aristocrat -

0:03:430:03:45

during the French Revolution,

0:03:450:03:47

many aristocrats were executed on the guillotine,

0:03:470:03:49

and their decapitated heads were used to make wax replicas.

0:03:490:03:54

The woman behind this had a name. Was it Madame...

0:03:540:03:57

Let's see your answers now.

0:04:030:04:06

OK.

0:04:060:04:07

Kirsty and Oliver going for Madame Bonaparte,

0:04:070:04:10

Hannah is going for Madame Tussaud.

0:04:100:04:12

And the answer is B - Madame Tussaud.

0:04:120:04:16

Well done, Hannah.

0:04:160:04:17

Founder of Madam Tussaud's,

0:04:170:04:19

the famous museum of wax replicas of historical figures and celebrities.

0:04:190:04:23

I don't think nowadays they make wax replicas

0:04:230:04:26

using decapitated heads of celebrities.

0:04:260:04:28

No, which is a shame - in many instances, of course.

0:04:280:04:31

Excellent.

0:04:310:04:33

Oliver, your turn to pick next. Three topics remaining.

0:04:330:04:36

Can I go with entertainment?

0:04:360:04:40

In 1764, the Duke of Cumberland entertained guests

0:04:400:04:43

with an organised fight between...

0:04:430:04:45

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:04:510:04:53

Oliver and Hannah going for A,

0:04:530:04:55

Kirsty for C. Let's see who is right.

0:04:550:04:58

The answer is A - a tiger and a stag.

0:04:580:05:01

If you don't want to know who won, look away now.

0:05:010:05:04

Hannah, it's your turn to choose a topic next.

0:05:050:05:08

Erm...please can I have cures.

0:05:080:05:10

Cures.

0:05:100:05:12

OK, here we go, good luck.

0:05:120:05:14

Interesting! So, is it A, B or C?

0:05:260:05:30

Oliver and Kirsty are agreeing on A. Hannah going with C.

0:05:310:05:34

Let's hear what the answer is.

0:05:340:05:36

The answer is C -

0:05:360:05:38

wear roast turnip skin behind the ear.

0:05:380:05:41

That extra point means that you cannot be caught.

0:05:410:05:44

So, Hannah, you've won the quiz,

0:05:440:05:46

time to choose your Year Sphere from...Fun Dave.

0:05:460:05:51

Ha-ha-ha! Push, push, push...

0:05:510:05:55

Here you go, Hannah, come and pick a Year Sphere. Any one you want.

0:05:550:05:58

Yes, let's hope it's not the one with the Stone Age date,

0:05:580:06:01

they're worth a few million minus points.

0:06:010:06:04

Winning the quiz means Hannah is automatically through

0:06:040:06:07

to play the Georgian Game.

0:06:070:06:09

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

0:06:090:06:12

Let's find out.

0:06:120:06:13

It's a single player silly game!

0:06:170:06:19

So, Hannah, off down the time sewer with you.

0:06:190:06:22

Good luck in there, deep breath.

0:06:220:06:25

-Bye.

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:06:250:06:28

Oh, this stinks!

0:06:280:06:30

Picture the scene, it's 21st October 1805,

0:06:300:06:34

and the 27 ships of the British Royal Navy

0:06:340:06:37

faced the 33 boats of the French and Spanish Navy.

0:06:370:06:40

It's time to play...

0:06:400:06:41

You are a British Navy gunner.

0:06:440:06:46

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

0:06:460:06:51

You score a point for every enemy ship you shoot

0:06:510:06:53

and lose a point for every British ship you hit.

0:06:530:06:56

Score six points in the time limit to win your Year Sphere.

0:06:560:07:00

-And battle begins now!

-FOG HORN

0:07:000:07:03

Here goes Hannah in her own personal Battle of Trafalgar.

0:07:030:07:07

She loads the cannon here. There we go, lines it up.

0:07:070:07:11

Is she going to hit a Spanish galleon or a British ship?

0:07:110:07:14

The answer is she's not going to hit anything.

0:07:140:07:16

Do you know why it was called Trafalgar, Dull Dave?

0:07:160:07:19

Actually, Fun Dave, I don't think I do.

0:07:190:07:21

Because it took place off the coast of Spain,

0:07:210:07:24

just west of Cape Trafalgar.

0:07:240:07:26

Genuinely interesting. Oh!

0:07:260:07:28

That was a French galleon that has gone down!

0:07:280:07:32

So that's one point. Well played, Hannah.

0:07:320:07:35

She's reloaded already, she's very keen to get in amongst the carnage.

0:07:350:07:39

-She's missed again, Rattus, has she?

-That's very unfortunate.

0:07:390:07:43

Yeah, but she's reloading, that's the thing...

0:07:430:07:46

Another Frenchie down! Another Frenchie!

0:07:460:07:49

Two correct hits for Hannah. She's doing extremely well.

0:07:490:07:52

Hannah seems to have very good sea legs.

0:07:520:07:54

She does, she's wobbling about on that platform, remember.

0:07:540:07:58

It was my idea to have the springs added.

0:07:580:08:00

And it was a good idea.

0:08:000:08:02

You can see that ship is moving from side to side.

0:08:020:08:05

She's doing extremely well.

0:08:050:08:07

Hello! Who's this coming into the game? There is a seagull in the way!

0:08:070:08:11

I guess the only answer is just to ignore it and hope it flies off.

0:08:110:08:15

This is a battle. You shouldn't be concentrating on the wildlife.

0:08:150:08:18

-Seagull was my idea, too.

-You're not helping, Rattus.

0:08:180:08:21

I'm not, am I? Ha-ha-ha!

0:08:210:08:22

But Hannah's managing to ignore it.

0:08:220:08:24

Excellent seamanship and she's sunk another French galleon!

0:08:240:08:28

-CLOCK CHIMES

-30 seconds.

0:08:280:08:30

She's doing well but the clock is ticking, she's running out of time.

0:08:300:08:34

Has she got enough time left to get the six galleons that she needs?

0:08:340:08:39

Oh, there's number five!

0:08:410:08:43

That Spanish galleon won't be going anywhere other than downwards!

0:08:430:08:46

She just needs one more!

0:08:460:08:48

We really are running out of time, probably about 15 seconds left.

0:08:480:08:52

She needs one more ship! Only ten seconds left!

0:08:520:08:54

And she's done it!

0:08:540:08:56

Stand aside, Lord Nelson, it's Hannah's turn to take the glory!

0:08:560:08:59

Welcome back, collect your Year Sphere.

0:09:000:09:03

In the real battle, 22 ships of the enemy fleets

0:09:040:09:07

were sunk without a single British vessel being lost.

0:09:070:09:11

Which I think we can safely say

0:09:110:09:13

is the last time a British team won anything 22-0.

0:09:130:09:16

On to round two, and it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:09:160:09:20

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:09:200:09:23

Here are your all-important Egyptian topics.

0:09:230:09:26

So, Oliver, it's your turn to pick first this time. Pick away.

0:09:310:09:35

Can I go with pharaohs?

0:09:350:09:37

You certainly can, sir.

0:09:370:09:39

Around 1800 BC, pharaohs stopped being buried in pyramids

0:09:390:09:43

and were buried underground instead. Why was this? Was it...

0:09:430:09:47

Show me your answers now.

0:09:540:09:57

All Bs. Let's hear if you're all right.

0:09:570:09:59

The answer is B -

0:09:590:10:01

they were buried underground so people couldn't find them

0:10:010:10:04

to steal their treasure.

0:10:040:10:06

-Hannah, your pick. Pick away.

-Can I have Egyptian gods, please?

0:10:060:10:10

Here's what I want to know...

0:10:100:10:13

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:10:220:10:25

The girls both going for A, Oliver for C.

0:10:250:10:27

Let's hear the correct answer.

0:10:270:10:29

The answer is A - the Egyptian god of wisdom had the head of a bird.

0:10:290:10:34

Though the head of a rat would have made a lot more sense.

0:10:340:10:37

Absolutely. Kirsty, your turn to pick a topic.

0:10:370:10:41

Can I have sport, please?

0:10:410:10:43

You're lucky, because this is a question from Rattus.

0:10:430:10:48

-From Fun Dave.

-Thank you very much.

0:10:480:10:52

What was the most dangerous sport in Egypt for posh people?

0:10:520:10:56

Was it A - lion hunting,

0:10:560:10:59

B - hyena hunting,

0:10:590:11:01

or C - hippo hunting?

0:11:010:11:03

Let's see your answers now.

0:11:030:11:05

Wow, all three Cs again.

0:11:060:11:08

-Fun Dave?

-I can tell you the answer is C.

0:11:080:11:11

Yes, you're all right!

0:11:110:11:12

Hippos are extremely dangerous.

0:11:120:11:14

They still kill more humans than any other animal in Africa.

0:11:140:11:19

And the final question in this round is on magicians.

0:11:190:11:22

Let's hear what it is.

0:11:220:11:24

Pharaoh Cheops built the Great Pyramid

0:11:250:11:28

and he also had one of the first ever magicians, called Djedi.

0:11:280:11:31

But what was Djedi's famous trick?

0:11:310:11:34

Was it A - he could disappear, B - he could levitate,

0:11:340:11:37

or C - he could cut off a goose's head and put it back...alive?

0:11:370:11:41

Let's see your answers now.

0:11:410:11:44

Complete agreement once again, everyone going for C.

0:11:440:11:47

Let's find out if you're right.

0:11:470:11:48

The answer is C -

0:11:480:11:51

he could cut off a goose's head and put it back alive.

0:11:510:11:53

He also did the same trick with an ox,

0:11:530:11:55

but he refused to try it out with a man.

0:11:550:11:57

That's probably because it was all just a trick.

0:11:570:11:59

A trick, you say? I'll have Djedi's head chopped off

0:11:590:12:03

and see if he can put it back on again!

0:12:030:12:06

That's the end of the round, and we've got a tie, with two maximums.

0:12:060:12:10

Kirsty and Hannah, you got every question right,

0:12:100:12:13

so you two have to put your fingers on the buzzers,

0:12:130:12:15

and we're going to have a buzzer question.

0:12:150:12:19

Beginning with the letter C, which famous Queen of Egypt

0:12:190:12:23

dated two famous Romans, Mark Antony and Julius Caesar? Hannah?

0:12:230:12:27

-Cleopatra.

-That's the right answer.

0:12:270:12:29

Hannah, you've won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:12:290:12:32

As the quiz winner, Hannah, you're through to play the Egyptian Game,

0:12:330:12:37

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

0:12:370:12:41

Let's find out.

0:12:410:12:42

It's an all-play silly game!

0:12:450:12:48

So it's time for you all to go off down the time sewer, one at a time.

0:12:480:12:54

Go on, Hannah, you know the way.

0:12:540:12:55

Just follow Hannah, if I were you, Oliver.

0:12:550:12:57

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:12:570:13:00

In you go, Kirsty. Bye! Don't come back till you've won a Year Sphere.

0:13:000:13:04

Now, King Pepi had an original solution to the fly problem

0:13:050:13:09

in ancient Egypt.

0:13:090:13:10

He'd pour pots of honey over some slaves

0:13:100:13:12

-and stand them in the corners of the room.

-Ha-ha-ha!

0:13:120:13:14

It's so obvious when you think about it, isn't it?

0:13:140:13:17

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

0:13:170:13:20

and fly swat as possible.

0:13:200:13:22

The person who catches the most flies wins the Year Sphere.

0:13:220:13:26

Here come those pesky flies.

0:13:260:13:28

It's time to play...

0:13:280:13:31

So here were are. They are covered in honey,

0:13:320:13:35

they've got fly swats and they're trying to catch

0:13:350:13:38

as many flies as they can. What an excellent start from Hannah.

0:13:380:13:42

She's got two flies on there already.

0:13:420:13:44

-Rattus, this is a good game, isn't it?

-It's one of my favourites!

0:13:440:13:47

It's sweet and gooey. What's not to love?

0:13:470:13:51

I have to say I fell asleep in my garden yesterday

0:13:510:13:54

and caught two flies in my open mouth.

0:13:540:13:56

That was certainly not to love!

0:13:560:13:58

Flies coming from all angles now.

0:13:580:14:01

They're standing all quite near the front.

0:14:010:14:03

With the exception of Kirsty, they're scoring fairly heavily.

0:14:030:14:06

Kirsty, a bit slow off the mark,

0:14:080:14:09

but she's gone to the back of the room,

0:14:090:14:12

and you'd think that's a mistake with the flies being at the front.

0:14:120:14:16

None of them stuck to them themselves yet.

0:14:160:14:19

No, it doesn't appear that the honey is attracting the flies

0:14:190:14:22

in the way one would hope.

0:14:220:14:24

Hang on! There's a fly stolen there. Oliver has stolen a fly!

0:14:240:14:29

The officials will be all over that. That will get taken off his score.

0:14:290:14:33

Oh, look out! Look out.

0:14:330:14:36

Oliver's got a fly on his head.

0:14:360:14:39

Doesn't he look a bit silly? But what a tremendous catch.

0:14:390:14:42

Kirsty's got one too! Superb!

0:14:420:14:45

That means Hannah is the only one without a fly on her head.

0:14:450:14:48

She'll be absolutely furious about that. Oh, dear me!

0:14:480:14:51

BUZZER

0:14:510:14:52

There's the buzzer. Hannah's finally got a fly

0:14:520:14:55

on her head, but that won't count. It doesn't matter. She's done it.

0:14:550:14:59

Help yourself to another Year Sphere, Hannah.

0:15:000:15:03

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

0:15:030:15:07

It's the Vicious Vikings.

0:15:070:15:10

And here are your four Viking topics.

0:15:100:15:12

Hannah, it's your turn to pick first.

0:15:170:15:19

Please, can I have Viking Heaven?

0:15:190:15:22

That, very excitingly, is a prop question.

0:15:220:15:26

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:15:260:15:28

Vikings believed that in Valhalla, Viking Heaven,

0:15:280:15:31

dead warriors would drink from the skulls of their enemies.

0:15:310:15:36

Is that true or false? Let's see your answers now.

0:15:360:15:39

Oh, you've all gone for true, and you're all absolutely right.

0:15:400:15:45

It is true. Kirsty, it's your turn.

0:15:450:15:48

Can I have Battle, please?

0:15:480:15:50

Battle.

0:15:500:15:52

Is this true or false?

0:15:520:15:55

Is that true or false?

0:15:590:16:02

Kirsty and Oliver going for false, Hannah, on her own, with true.

0:16:030:16:07

It's...true!

0:16:070:16:10

Yes, it's absolutely true. They wore eyeliner made from ash.

0:16:100:16:14

Probably made them look girly but no-one was brave enough to say that.

0:16:140:16:17

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:16:170:16:19

Actually, you are quite good fun.

0:16:190:16:21

Good for you.

0:16:210:16:22

Oliver, your turn to pick a topic.

0:16:220:16:24

-Can I go with Viking Myth, please?

-Yes. Let's hear that question.

0:16:240:16:27

True or false? We believed the first man and woman came from a volcano.

0:16:270:16:33

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:16:330:16:36

Three falses. Let's see if you're all right or all wrong.

0:16:360:16:39

It's false! They came from the sweat of a giant's armpit, obviously.

0:16:390:16:44

Ugh! The sweat of a giant's armpit?! Even I find that disgusting

0:16:440:16:49

-and I'm a rat!

-That must be very, very disgusting, then.

0:16:490:16:52

Here is the final question of this round.

0:16:520:16:56

True or false? In the year 1004,

0:16:560:17:00

when the people of Norwich offered us money to stop raiding them,

0:17:000:17:03

we graciously accepted and went home.

0:17:030:17:05

Let's see your answers now, please.

0:17:050:17:08

Hannah goes with true, the other two with false.

0:17:080:17:11

Let's hear the answer.

0:17:110:17:13

It's false! We did take their money,

0:17:130:17:16

but then we destroyed Norwich any way.

0:17:160:17:18

-HE LAUGHS

-It was brilliant fun.

0:17:180:17:21

That means you all have three points each

0:17:210:17:24

and we go to our buzzer question. Fingers on your buzzers.

0:17:240:17:29

Beginning with the letter T,

0:17:290:17:30

which day of the week is named after the Viking god of Thunder, Thor?

0:17:300:17:35

-Oliver.

-Is it Thursday?

-It is Thursday, Oliver.

0:17:350:17:38

Congratulations, you've won yourself a Year Sphere. Go and collect it.

0:17:380:17:42

OK, Oliver, you're through to play the Viking game,

0:17:420:17:46

but will it be just you, or will everyone else get to play?

0:17:460:17:48

Let's find out.

0:17:480:17:50

It's a single player brainy game. Off down the Time Sewer with you.

0:17:530:17:59

Go on. I know it stinks.

0:17:590:18:00

-Bye!

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:18:000:18:02

Vikings didn't just raid Britain. Many of them settled here

0:18:040:18:07

and some Viking words have become part of the English language.

0:18:070:18:10

Seven words, then, but two don't come from the Vikings.

0:18:100:18:14

Your challenge, to work out which five do.

0:18:140:18:17

Choose five words and move them to the Viking board,

0:18:170:18:20

then touch the Viking axe - mind your fingers, though - to find out

0:18:200:18:23

how many you've got right. Keep trying new combinations

0:18:230:18:26

until you've got all five but be quick,

0:18:260:18:29

because you're against the clock. It's time to play...

0:18:290:18:31

BUZZER

0:18:330:18:34

Can Oliver find those five genuine Viking words?

0:18:350:18:40

First up, slaughter.

0:18:400:18:43

-Slaughter!

-Sounds right, doesn't it?

0:18:430:18:45

He's gone for crash second.

0:18:450:18:49

Do you know, Dave, in our rat language,

0:18:490:18:51

we don't have a word for disgusting.

0:18:510:18:53

I'm not surprised. He's not exactly rushing, is he?

0:18:530:18:57

He's taking his time but he's considering every move he's making.

0:18:570:19:01

I like to see that in a young man, consideration.

0:19:010:19:03

LOUD SCREAM

0:19:030:19:05

ANNOUNCER: You have four right.

0:19:050:19:07

Now he has to get tactical. Cake goes. In comes skull.

0:19:070:19:11

A good substitution, do you think?

0:19:110:19:13

I'm not so sure skull is a good substitution, Dave.

0:19:130:19:17

Neither does Oliver. He's got rid of skull straight away.

0:19:170:19:21

I was wondering, is your skull as old as you are?

0:19:210:19:25

I'm not answering that.

0:19:250:19:26

Oh, and he's got fewer.

0:19:260:19:28

He's only got three right now.

0:19:280:19:29

Both wrong answers are up there.

0:19:290:19:31

I wonder if juggle is one of them.

0:19:310:19:33

He's taken that one way and replaced it. Let's see how many he's left.

0:19:330:19:37

Oh, he's going to make two changes at once. This is a bit unusual

0:19:370:19:40

because it means he won't know which ones are wrong and right.

0:19:400:19:44

I said a moment ago I thought he was considering it.

0:19:440:19:46

I don't think he is at all.

0:19:460:19:49

He's panicking and just picking up any old card.

0:19:490:19:51

You say that but he has got four right. What's coming off?

0:19:510:19:54

Slaughter is coming off and on in its place goes juggle.

0:19:540:20:00

How many has he got? Three right.

0:20:000:20:03

We can deduce from that that juggle is not one of the words he's after.

0:20:030:20:07

Only 30 seconds to go.

0:20:070:20:08

Die is going on but this is random.

0:20:080:20:11

He's making many changes again at once.

0:20:110:20:14

Things changing all over

0:20:140:20:15

and he's not touching the axe. Touch the axe!

0:20:150:20:17

He's touched the axe. He's got four of them right

0:20:170:20:20

but I'm sure he's got no idea which ones they are.

0:20:200:20:23

Crash has come off now, Rattus. Is he just clutching at straws?

0:20:230:20:27

-I fear he is, Dave.

-How's that?

0:20:270:20:29

Oh, he's still got four right.

0:20:290:20:32

BUZZER

0:20:320:20:33

And he's run out of time. Oh, Oliver. You didn't find the words.

0:20:330:20:38

Welcome back, Oliver. Bad luck. In fact, wound is a Saxon word

0:20:400:20:45

and juggle comes from medieval French,

0:20:450:20:48

so I'm afraid no Year Sphere there.

0:20:480:20:51

But crash, die, slaughter and skull

0:20:510:20:53

are all words we get from the Vikings, as, bizarrely, is cake!

0:20:530:20:57

Let me get this right.

0:20:570:20:58

Once the Vikings have crashed into your homes screaming, "Die!"

0:20:580:21:02

and have slaughtered everyone by crushing their skulls,

0:21:020:21:06

they settle down for a nice piece of cake.

0:21:060:21:08

Yeah, something like that.

0:21:080:21:10

Time for the final round, I think. Over to the Gory Grid

0:21:100:21:13

to find out what we've got.

0:21:130:21:15

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:21:150:21:18

No quirky quiz in our final round.

0:21:180:21:20

It's straight to our big all play Middle Ages end game,

0:21:200:21:25

and let me tell you, this is a very messy one!

0:21:250:21:29

Time for everyone to get down that Time Sewer.

0:21:300:21:33

-In you go.

-Bye!

-Well done. Bye, Hannah.

-Bye!

-Bye, Kirsty. Look out.

0:21:330:21:40

When I say messy, I really mean messy, as you're going gong farming.

0:21:400:21:45

Yes, gong, I'm afraid, was a Middle Ages word for poop,

0:21:450:21:50

and your job is to collect the gong from the cesspit,

0:21:500:21:53

carry it along your lane and slop it into a measuring cylinder.

0:21:530:21:56

Whoever collects the most collects the Year Sphere, but beware,

0:21:560:22:00

some Middle Ages types would just poo directly onto the street below.

0:22:000:22:04

So mind your heads. Right then. It's time to play:

0:22:040:22:08

BUZZER

0:22:090:22:11

We're off with the gong farming.

0:22:110:22:13

-This is your favourite, Rattus?

-It certainly is.

0:22:130:22:16

It really is a messy game, this one.

0:22:160:22:19

Hannah is first there. So is Kirsty. There she goes.

0:22:190:22:23

What a full bucket load she's got there.

0:22:230:22:25

Let's hope she makes it back with it all.

0:22:250:22:27

Oliver seems to be struggling to get into the game at all.

0:22:270:22:30

Hannah delivers her first payload. What about that, Rattus?

0:22:310:22:35

Excellent move there from Hannah.

0:22:350:22:37

Unfortunately Oliver shed his load, Kirsty delivers almost a full one.

0:22:370:22:41

That's an excellent effort from Kirsty.

0:22:410:22:43

Oliver may not cut it as a gong farmer.

0:22:430:22:45

I'm not sure it's the right career for him.

0:22:450:22:48

But Hannah is an excellent gong farmer.

0:22:480:22:50

There's her second brimful load of poo being delivered there.

0:22:500:22:53

Oliver can only dream of bringing that much gong.

0:22:530:22:55

Of course when we say "gong"

0:22:550:22:57

that is in fact poop we're talking about.

0:22:570:23:00

That is poop, although I should point out

0:23:000:23:02

that this is not real poo we're using here.

0:23:020:23:06

What? Is it not? What's the point?

0:23:060:23:09

I'm sorry you had to find out like that.

0:23:090:23:12

The game's moving nicely.

0:23:120:23:14

Oliver delivering a little bundle of poop.

0:23:140:23:17

That's his first one.

0:23:170:23:18

He's only got a little smudge in the bottom of his cylinder.

0:23:180:23:22

But brave lad, Oliver. Oh, he's fallen over.

0:23:220:23:25

Oh, dear me. Oliver is stuck... But he's got a smile on his face!

0:23:250:23:30

-He's enjoying himself.

-I don't know if that's a smile or just gas.

0:23:300:23:34

I'm sure it's a smile, Rattus.

0:23:340:23:36

Here we go. Here's Hannah coming through to get more poop.

0:23:360:23:40

They're doing very well. The poop is spilling out of the buckets

0:23:400:23:44

-and making those lanes slippery.

-Kirsty nearly went over there.

0:23:440:23:48

She nearly went over but she's delivered another full bucket.

0:23:480:23:52

Look at that going in there. That's an enormous amount of poo.

0:23:520:23:56

That is the most poo I've seen in one place

0:23:560:23:59

since a herd of cows got trapped in my back garden. It wasn't pretty.

0:23:590:24:03

Dear, oh, dear.

0:24:030:24:05

Oh! That was the point I was about to mention.

0:24:050:24:08

Straight away we see Hannah

0:24:080:24:09

slipping in the poo from the windows above.

0:24:090:24:12

What a mess that was.

0:24:120:24:14

30 seconds left and it's going to be very difficult now.

0:24:140:24:18

-Oh!

-Oh!

-She's over again. Oh, dear me, she looks a little tired now.

0:24:180:24:24

Not much poo went into the measuring cylinder that time.

0:24:240:24:28

Oliver's putting it on his head. Surely that's a mistake!

0:24:280:24:31

Never put a bucket of poo on your head.

0:24:310:24:33

That's the first rule of gong farming.

0:24:330:24:36

The second rule of gong farming? Never talk about gong farming.

0:24:360:24:41

-There's Kirsty rolling around...

-BUZZER

0:24:410:24:43

And it's all over! It's all over. Ooh, just at the end there.

0:24:430:24:48

Oliver flew out of the lane. A man, poo dripping from his hat,

0:24:480:24:52

he's never looked happier. Hannah wins it by a snitch.

0:24:520:24:56

She got more in the jar than on her head, unlike Oliver!

0:24:560:24:59

What a superb effort.

0:24:590:25:01

Welcome back, Gory Gamers. Hannah, please collect your Year Sphere.

0:25:010:25:07

There we are. Gong farming wasn't the most pleasant job in the world,

0:25:070:25:11

but because of that, it was actually very well paid.

0:25:110:25:14

Aw, come on. Surely you do a job like that just for the love of it.

0:25:140:25:18

You are so very weird.

0:25:180:25:20

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

0:25:200:25:24

are added to your total and the BC years

0:25:240:25:27

are subtracted from it.

0:25:270:25:29

Kirsty, we're starting with you. I'm taking a guess at your score.

0:25:290:25:33

I'm think it's nought, but don't worry,

0:25:330:25:37

because with the BC totals flying around,

0:25:370:25:40

nought could be the winning score.

0:25:400:25:43

Oliver, I'm going to ask you to reveal your score.

0:25:430:25:47

212 BC.

0:25:470:25:51

Death of the Greek inventor and scientist Archimedes.

0:25:510:25:54

That means that Kirsty, you are in the lead.

0:25:540:25:58

Hannah's spheres are to be opened next.

0:25:580:26:01

Let's start with that one.

0:26:010:26:02

1840 AD. The Penny Black becomes the first stamp. So you're off the mark.

0:26:020:26:08

Let's look at the next one.

0:26:080:26:11

1792 AD. Gas lighting was invented that year.

0:26:110:26:16

Let's have a look at the third.

0:26:160:26:17

1483 AD. Richard III became King of England.

0:26:170:26:24

This is turning into a good total. Let's look at the fourth one.

0:26:240:26:28

991 AD. Vikings won the Battle of Maldon.

0:26:280:26:33

It all hinges on this last sphere. What have we got?

0:26:330:26:37

It's another AD! 476 AD.

0:26:370:26:40

The fall of the Roman Empire.

0:26:400:26:42

That means that today's winner, with 6,582 points, is Hannah!

0:26:420:26:49

The good news is that you're taking home the star prize.

0:26:490:26:53

The bad news is that I'm afraid it's been fished out of the Time Sewers

0:26:530:26:57

by my flea-bitten colleague here.

0:26:570:26:59

What do you have for us today, Rattus?

0:26:590:27:02

The prize today is some exclusive footwear.

0:27:020:27:06

Well, something off a foot, that you'd wear.

0:27:060:27:09

All the way from the Incan Empire,

0:27:090:27:11

it's your very own llama toenail bracelet!

0:27:110:27:14

I can think of nothing more horrible.

0:27:160:27:19

I fished it out of the sewer so try and imagine how it looked

0:27:190:27:24

-before I washed it.

-Yeah, thanks for that.

0:27:240:27:26

Here you go, Hannah. There is your prize.

0:27:260:27:29

I'm sorry it's just a load of old toenails. But that's life.

0:27:290:27:33

It just remains for me to say thanks to our champion, Hannah,

0:27:330:27:37

thanks to our gallant runners-up, Kirsty and Oliver,

0:27:370:27:41

-and no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

-Fun day.

-To fun day.

0:27:410:27:45
