# And you don't like the sound of an exploding king

0:00:050:00:08

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

0:00:080:00:10

# You'd better turn off This show ain't for you

0:00:100:00:13

# Horrible Histories Gory...Games. #

0:00:200:00:23

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

0:00:240:00:27

And me, Rattus Rattus.

0:00:270:00:29

This is the show where you get to test your knowledge

0:00:290:00:32

of Horrible Histories with some of the messiest games known to man.

0:00:320:00:35

But not to rat, oh no.

0:00:350:00:37

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

0:00:370:00:40

Yeah, well, log flume rides are usually wet

0:00:400:00:42

but not usually that messy.

0:00:420:00:44

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

0:00:440:00:47

at the top of a tower block.

0:00:470:00:49

You stand on the seat, jump up to pull the flush,

0:00:490:00:51

then leap down the bowl...

0:00:510:00:53

all...

0:00:530:00:55

all the way down to the main sewer.

0:00:550:00:58

Splash down!

0:00:580:01:00

Now, THAT'S messy, I can tell you.

0:01:000:01:04

Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:01:040:01:07

Hey, I'm Sonnyboy.

0:01:070:01:09

Hello, my name's Carrera.

0:01:090:01:10

Hi, I'm Aaron.

0:01:100:01:12

Lovely, they're all here. Welcome, all of you.

0:01:120:01:14

-Dave.

-Yes?

0:01:140:01:15

-Dave.

-What?

0:01:150:01:16

-Dave.

-What?

0:01:160:01:17

-Dave.

-WHAT?

-I thought we could play a classic playground game.

0:01:170:01:20

-Oh.

-With a Middle Ages twist.

0:01:200:01:22

-Oh.

-I'm sure everybody's heard of hopscotch, well,

0:01:220:01:25

we're going to play it as though it were in a genuine Middle Ages street.

0:01:250:01:29

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

0:01:290:01:32

horse droppings and human droppings! In a game I'm calling Plopscotch.

0:01:320:01:38

And just to make it really tricky, let's make it night-time.

0:01:380:01:42

Oh, great(!)

0:01:420:01:44

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

0:01:440:01:46

NO, no, no way. Don't worry, you won't have to do that.

0:01:460:01:49

Big Tony, can we get all this cleaned up, please?

0:01:490:01:52

I can't see where I'm going.

0:01:520:01:53

Fine, excellent, I'll just clean it up myself, will I, if I have to?

0:01:530:01:56

Ooh, mind the...

0:01:560:01:57

SQUELCHING NOISE Too late.

0:01:570:02:00

Ah, brilliant, that is just fantastic(!)

0:02:000:02:03

I'm going to need a clean shirt, a clean pair of trousers and,

0:02:030:02:06

probably, a clean pair of shoes if you've got 'em.

0:02:060:02:08

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

0:02:100:02:13

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date

0:02:130:02:16

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

0:02:160:02:19

with AD dates being added to your total

0:02:190:02:22

and BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:02:220:02:25

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

0:02:250:02:28

Er, 734.

0:02:280:02:29

That's actually really close, do you want to try again?

0:02:290:02:32

30?

0:02:320:02:34

OK, I give up.

0:02:340:02:35

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

0:02:350:02:39

with the highest year score will win

0:02:390:02:40

a unique historical prize.

0:02:400:02:42

That's right, something I've picked out myself

0:02:420:02:45

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

0:02:450:02:47

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

0:02:470:02:50

Oi.

0:02:500:02:51

Right, let's get cracking

0:02:510:02:53

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

0:02:530:02:56

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:02:560:02:59

Four questions on the Terrible Tudors,

0:02:590:03:01

the person who gets the most right wins the first Year Sphere,

0:03:010:03:04

and your four Tudor topics are...

0:03:040:03:06

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

0:03:110:03:14

-what do you fancy?

-Um, Witches.

0:03:140:03:16

Witches.

0:03:160:03:17

Hope you're feeling brainy. Here's my question.

0:03:170:03:20

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:03:340:03:36

OK, the boys agreeing on A, Carrera thinks B. Let's find out.

0:03:370:03:42

Hope you got it right. The answer is...

0:03:420:03:45

It's horrible but it's true.

0:03:480:03:51

So, no points, actually, in that first question.

0:03:510:03:54

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

0:03:540:03:56

Mean Queens?

0:03:560:03:58

Mean Queens.

0:03:580:03:59

My daughter, Queen Mary, was a Catholic

0:03:590:04:02

and married the King of Spain.

0:04:020:04:03

He didn't like her much and went home to Spain,

0:04:030:04:06

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

0:04:060:04:09

There we go, well, Aaron's gone for A,

0:04:150:04:18

Carrera's gone for A, Sonnyboy on his own with C.

0:04:180:04:20

Let's see what the answer is.

0:04:200:04:22

The answer is C,

0:04:220:04:23

to encourage him to come back she sent him pies.

0:04:230:04:26

Well, would have worked with me.

0:04:260:04:28

Probably would have worked on me, to be honest.

0:04:280:04:30

Er, getting a bit peckish, actually.

0:04:300:04:33

So, Sonnyboy, well done.

0:04:330:04:35

You're in the lead with one point

0:04:350:04:36

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

0:04:360:04:39

I'll pick Superstitions.

0:04:390:04:41

Superstitions.

0:04:410:04:42

What did we Tudors do to predict our future luck?

0:04:420:04:46

A - Jump over a moss-covered rock,

0:04:460:04:48

B - Jump over a lit candle,

0:04:480:04:51

or C - Jump over a sleeping cat?

0:04:510:04:53

OK, everybody going for B.

0:04:530:04:56

Are they all right or all wrong?

0:04:560:04:58

The answer's B, jump over a lit candle.

0:04:580:05:01

If the candle went out it was bad luck,

0:05:010:05:04

little bit like marrying me, uh?

0:05:040:05:06

Laugh or I will chop your head off.

0:05:070:05:09

And it's this activity that's being described in the nursery rhyme,

0:05:090:05:14

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candlestick.

0:05:140:05:18

Ah, the rat knows all.

0:05:180:05:20

Except how to add up.

0:05:200:05:21

Do you know, if I had a pound coin for every time you took the mickey

0:05:210:05:24

out of my adding up skills, I'd have...

0:05:240:05:26

No idea how many coins you had.

0:05:260:05:29

OK, one question left in this round.

0:05:290:05:32

Sonnyboy in the lead with two, the others on one

0:05:320:05:34

but everyone can still win this round.

0:05:340:05:37

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

0:05:370:05:41

Prop question, prop question.

0:05:410:05:43

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

0:05:430:05:46

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

0:05:460:05:50

Was it A, that all woolly hats were banned,

0:05:500:05:53

B, everyone had to wear a woolly hat on Sundays,

0:05:530:05:56

or was it C, that all bald men had to wear woolly hats?

0:05:560:06:00

Interesting, Carrera and Aaron agreeing on B,

0:06:020:06:04

Sonnyboy on his own with C.

0:06:040:06:06

The answer is in fact B, everyone had to wear a woolly hat on Sundays.

0:06:060:06:11

It was to boost sales in the English wool trade.

0:06:110:06:14

And to make everyone look more than a bit stupid.

0:06:140:06:18

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

0:06:180:06:20

OK, well, that's the end of the round and, look at that,

0:06:200:06:23

we have a complete tie, everyone has two points.

0:06:230:06:26

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

0:06:260:06:30

Fingers on those buzzers, please.

0:06:300:06:32

Beginning with the letter E,

0:06:320:06:34

what's the name of King Henry VIII's daughter who reigned for 44 years?

0:06:340:06:38

Carrera.

0:06:380:06:39

Elizabeth?

0:06:390:06:41

Elizabeth is absolutely right! Well done, Carrera.

0:06:410:06:44

You have won the first Year Sphere.

0:06:440:06:46

Yay!

0:06:460:06:47

Yay. Time to choose your Year Sphere from our trolley-wally.

0:06:470:06:51

Ooh, push, push, push, push, push, push, push, push, push.

0:06:510:06:54

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

0:06:540:06:58

But be warned, one of those spheres may contain a stone age date

0:06:580:07:02

which could be worth a few million minus points.

0:07:020:07:04

-That one, are you sure?

-Yeah.

0:07:040:07:06

OK. Push, push, push, push, bye.

0:07:060:07:11

Winning the quiz means that Carrera is automatically through to play

0:07:110:07:14

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

0:07:140:07:17

Let's find out.

0:07:170:07:19

It's an All Play Brainy Game!

0:07:220:07:25

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

0:07:250:07:29

Lead 'em off.

0:07:290:07:31

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

0:07:350:07:39

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

0:07:390:07:42

far more glamorous in her portraits than she really was.

0:07:420:07:45

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

0:07:450:07:48

It's time to play...

0:07:480:07:49

Your challenge is to assemble two perfect copies

0:07:530:07:55

of an Elizabeth portrait. The only problem, is your two puzzles

0:07:550:07:58

are made out of differently shaped pieces.

0:07:580:08:01

Complete your puzzles quicker than the others

0:08:010:08:03

to win the Year Sphere.

0:08:030:08:05

In three, two, one.

0:08:050:08:06

HORN SOUNDS

0:08:060:08:09

So, here we go then with Puzzling Portraits

0:08:090:08:11

and let's hope that, at the end of this,

0:08:110:08:14

we don't find one of the pieces is missing,

0:08:140:08:16

like at Christmas. That'd be awful wouldn't it, Rattus?

0:08:160:08:19

If there is a piece missing,

0:08:190:08:20

I can pretty much guarantee it'll be in a mug on the mantelpiece

0:08:200:08:23

along with a paperclip and two pieces of half-chewed chewing gum.

0:08:230:08:27

Yes, remind me never to spend Christmas at your house, Rattus.

0:08:270:08:30

There's Carrera doing, well,

0:08:300:08:33

sort of trying to saw it together there a little bit.

0:08:330:08:36

Not much joy yet.

0:08:360:08:38

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

0:08:380:08:40

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

0:08:400:08:43

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

0:08:430:08:46

to see what the finished puzzle should look like.

0:08:460:08:50

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

0:08:500:08:52

He's doing two at once, Dave.

0:08:520:08:54

This is an excellent piece of tactic, I think,

0:08:540:08:57

this is the strategy you need.

0:08:570:08:58

He's doing this like a machine,

0:08:580:09:01

I've never seen it done this fast, it's extraordinary.

0:09:010:09:04

Look at him, he's nearly finished over there.

0:09:040:09:06

And they say men can't multi-task, that's utter rubbish, isn't it?

0:09:060:09:09

And it's being proved to be utter, utter rubbish today.

0:09:090:09:13

He's got one piece left.

0:09:130:09:15

Oh, he's done it!

0:09:150:09:16

That is extraordinary.

0:09:160:09:18

He may well bounce up and down because he has just done two puzzles

0:09:180:09:21

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

0:09:210:09:24

Welcome back, everybody.

0:09:250:09:26

Sonnyboy, pick up your first Year Sphere, well played.

0:09:260:09:30

That was excellent puzzle work, it was really impressive.

0:09:310:09:36

Very good, you did both at once,

0:09:360:09:37

-you thought that'd be the best tactic, did you?

-Yeah.

0:09:370:09:40

-Aaron, did you find that difficult, easy?

-Pretty difficult.

0:09:400:09:43

Were you just concentrating on one?

0:09:430:09:45

Concentrated on one because I forgot about the other one.

0:09:450:09:48

Oh, did you? Easily done. Now, how did you find that, Carrera?

0:09:480:09:51

It were hard because you had to work out if pieces fit, like,

0:09:510:09:54

-and it were really complicated.

-Yeah.

0:09:540:09:56

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

0:09:560:10:01

Elizabeth I is believed to have owned.

0:10:010:10:03

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

0:10:030:10:05

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

0:10:050:10:08

Hang about, isn't that a bit rude to women, Dave?

0:10:090:10:11

You're so right. Sorry.

0:10:110:10:13

Moving swiftly on, on to round two, in fact,

0:10:130:10:15

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

0:10:150:10:18

It's the Gorgeous Georgians.

0:10:180:10:22

Four questions again, here are your all-important Georgian topics.

0:10:220:10:25

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

0:10:300:10:32

Police?

0:10:320:10:34

Police.

0:10:340:10:36

1749 saw the first organised police force in London

0:10:360:10:40

but what were they known as?

0:10:400:10:42

A - The Bow Street Bobbies,

0:10:420:10:44

B - The Bow Street Runners,

0:10:440:10:46

or C - The Bow Street Terries?

0:10:460:10:48

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:10:480:10:51

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

0:10:510:10:54

-What's the answer?

-The answer is B, the Bow Street Runners.

0:10:540:10:58

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

0:10:580:11:03

Aaron, your turn to pick a topic.

0:11:030:11:05

I'll pick Gloves.

0:11:050:11:08

Gloves it is.

0:11:080:11:09

Oh, this is exciting.

0:11:090:11:12

The question is...

0:11:120:11:13

OK, Sonnyboy and Carrera agreeing on B,

0:11:280:11:31

Aaron on his own with A.

0:11:310:11:33

What's the answer?

0:11:330:11:34

I can tell you the answer is...

0:11:340:11:36

C, they were given 192 pairs of gloves a year.

0:11:360:11:41

Yes, that's right!

0:11:410:11:42

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

0:11:420:11:44

So the scores remain Sonnyboy, one, Aaron, one and Carrera yet to score.

0:11:440:11:48

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

0:11:480:11:52

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

-Fans.

0:11:520:11:55

Fans, that is a prop question.

0:11:550:11:57

And here is the fan, as you can see.

0:11:590:12:02

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

0:12:020:12:07

but what did this gesture mean?

0:12:070:12:10

Ooohhhhh!

0:12:130:12:15

Yes, all right, Rattus.

0:12:150:12:16

Was it, A, "I am tired",

0:12:160:12:19

B, "I am sorry",

0:12:190:12:21

or was it C, "I need the toilet"?

0:12:210:12:23

OK, Carrera and Aaron agreeing on C,

0:12:230:12:26

Sonnyboy with B.

0:12:260:12:28

The answer is...

0:12:280:12:29

..I am so sorry, it's B.

0:12:300:12:33

And so you should be.

0:12:330:12:35

Well done, Sonnyboy, excellent stuff.

0:12:350:12:37

OK, one more question left in this round,

0:12:370:12:39

Sonnyboy, if you were to get it right you'd have won yourself

0:12:390:12:42

another Year Sphere.

0:12:420:12:44

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

0:12:440:12:48

How was Lord Nelson's body brought home

0:12:480:12:50

after his death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805?

0:12:500:12:54

A - In an ornamental coffin,

0:12:540:12:56

B - In a casket of tea,

0:12:560:12:58

or C - In a barrel of brandy?

0:12:580:13:01

OK, Sonnyboy with A,

0:13:020:13:05

Carrera and Aaron agreeing again on B.

0:13:050:13:07

The answer is C, in a barrel of brandy

0:13:070:13:10

so his body wouldn't rot too quickly.

0:13:100:13:13

So, nobody got that one right.

0:13:130:13:16

OK, that's it, that's the end of that round and it means, Sonnyboy,

0:13:160:13:20

you have won another Year Sphere,

0:13:200:13:21

collect it, please.

0:13:210:13:23

So, Sonnyboy, as quiz winner

0:13:240:13:26

you're also through to play the Georgian game,

0:13:260:13:29

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

0:13:290:13:32

Let's find out.

0:13:320:13:33

It's an All Play Silly Game!

0:13:350:13:38

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

0:13:380:13:41

Oh, head first!

0:13:430:13:45

Feet first.

0:13:450:13:47

Head first.

0:13:470:13:48

In Georgian times, anyone who was anyone wore a wig

0:13:540:13:57

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

0:13:570:14:00

-I'll take that as a compliment.

-Do what you like.

0:14:000:14:02

It's time to play...

0:14:020:14:04

Loads of fleas and lice

0:14:060:14:08

will be flinging themselves from a giant Georgian wig.

0:14:080:14:10

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

0:14:100:14:13

The player who catches the most wins the Year Sphere.

0:14:130:14:16

Let the Flea Fling begin!

0:14:160:14:18

HORN BLOWS

0:14:180:14:19

So, here we go then with a Flea Fling and there's a lot of fleas out

0:14:190:14:23

but none so far on the wigs.

0:14:230:14:25

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

0:14:250:14:28

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

0:14:280:14:31

There's the first flea!

0:14:310:14:32

Landed by Aaron who, literally, nearly threw himself off his feet.

0:14:320:14:35

Look at that! He's actually over.

0:14:350:14:38

-Oh!

-He's over!

0:14:380:14:39

He threw his head at that.

0:14:390:14:42

If he could've taken his head off and thrown it, he would have done.

0:14:420:14:45

I think he would, Dave.

0:14:450:14:48

Sonnyboy's got one hanging on the edge of his wig there.

0:14:480:14:50

Aaron's got two there, look, two fleas.

0:14:500:14:52

Oh, flea on the knee.

0:14:520:14:53

I think you have to catch them on your wig

0:14:530:14:55

so that flea is not scoring.

0:14:550:14:57

That's another one for Sonnyboy,

0:14:570:14:59

holding on to his wig there to support it.

0:14:590:15:02

Carrera's doing the same.

0:15:020:15:04

'30 seconds remaining.'

0:15:040:15:05

Look at Aaron, he's just free-styling,

0:15:050:15:08

he is throwing himself into this game with extraordinary vigour.

0:15:080:15:12

And his peripheral vision is being obscured there by a flea.

0:15:120:15:15

It really is extraordinary how many fleas are in this wig,

0:15:150:15:18

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

0:15:180:15:21

-HORN SOUNDS

-I think it's all over

0:15:210:15:23

and, for me, Aaron has won that but only just.

0:15:230:15:25

Welcome back, everyone, back behind those podiums.

0:15:280:15:31

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:15:310:15:33

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

0:15:340:15:37

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

0:15:370:15:40

and you've got to start all over again!

0:15:400:15:42

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

0:15:420:15:44

Oh, dear.

0:15:440:15:46

On with the show and to find out who's up next

0:15:460:15:49

it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:15:490:15:51

It's the Vile Victorians. Good day.

0:15:510:15:54

Here are your four Victorian topics.

0:15:540:15:57

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

0:16:010:16:04

London.

0:16:040:16:06

London, that is a question from my colleague, Rattus Rattus.

0:16:060:16:10

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

0:16:100:16:13

True or false?

0:16:130:16:15

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

0:16:150:16:21

Hm, interesting.

0:16:210:16:23

Let's see those answers now, please. So you've all agreed on false.

0:16:230:16:27

Are they all right or all wrong, Rattus?

0:16:270:16:29

You're all right!

0:16:290:16:31

It's false.

0:16:310:16:33

The River Thames turned brown

0:16:330:16:35

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

0:16:350:16:39

so it stank of poo!

0:16:390:16:40

For some reason, people didn't like it, don't understand that myself.

0:16:400:16:44

OK, Sonnyboy, your turn to pick a topic.

0:16:460:16:49

Gadgets.

0:16:490:16:50

Gadgets, that is a prop question.

0:16:500:16:54

And there is the prop. True or false?

0:16:540:16:57

This is a genuine Victorian contraption

0:16:570:17:00

for gentlemen to keep their moustache clean whilst eating.

0:17:000:17:03

OK, unanimous agreement again on true and I can tell you

0:17:050:17:09

that it is true, absolutely true. Well done, everyone.

0:17:090:17:13

I love food getting stuck on my facial hair.

0:17:130:17:16

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

0:17:160:17:20

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

0:17:200:17:23

Factories.

0:17:230:17:24

Factories.

0:17:240:17:26

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

0:17:260:17:30

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

0:17:320:17:35

everybody going for true.

0:17:350:17:36

Are they all right or all wrong?

0:17:360:17:38

It's true.

0:17:380:17:39

No singing was allowed, far too much fun,

0:17:390:17:42

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

0:17:420:17:45

they were very loud. Can anyone else hear that ringing?

0:17:450:17:48

No, no, just you.

0:17:480:17:50

So, it's three points each,

0:17:500:17:51

it's a maximum score for the round so far, that is extraordinary.

0:17:510:17:55

We have one question left, that question is on Doors.

0:17:550:17:59

True or false?

0:17:590:18:01

Some poor Victorians stole front doors from houses

0:18:010:18:04

so they could sleep on them.

0:18:040:18:05

And they are totally agreeing again with false,

0:18:050:18:09

this is extraordinary, they've agreed on everything in this round.

0:18:090:18:13

Are they all right this time?

0:18:130:18:14

It's true.

0:18:140:18:16

Poor people living in slums slept on the doors

0:18:160:18:19

rather than the cold, damp ground.

0:18:190:18:21

I slept on one last night, it's dead uncomfortable.

0:18:210:18:23

Probably should have taken that door knob off first.

0:18:230:18:26

Maybe filled in the letterbox as well.

0:18:260:18:28

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

0:18:290:18:31

at the end of that round and that means we have a buzzer question.

0:18:310:18:35

Fingers on buzzers.

0:18:350:18:36

Beginning with the letter A,

0:18:360:18:39

what was the name of Queen Victoria's husband?

0:18:390:18:41

Prince...

0:18:410:18:42

-Sonnyboy.

-Is it Arthur?

0:18:420:18:45

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

0:18:450:18:49

-Carrera.

-Albert?

0:18:490:18:51

Albert is absolutely right. Well done, Carrera,

0:18:510:18:54

you've won yourself another Year Sphere.

0:18:540:18:57

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

0:18:570:19:00

but will it be All Play or will it be Single Play?

0:19:000:19:03

Let's find out.

0:19:030:19:04

It's a Single Player Brainy Game!

0:19:080:19:11

So, get yourself down that Time Sewer.

0:19:110:19:12

Isambard Kingdom Brunel was a brilliant engineer,

0:19:170:19:20

a visionary designer and a lousy children's entertainer.

0:19:200:19:23

Whilst showing off magic tricks to his kids one day,

0:19:230:19:26

he accidentally got a large coin lodged in his throat

0:19:260:19:29

and he eventually managed to dislodge it using a clever device.

0:19:290:19:33

It's time to play...

0:19:330:19:34

Your challenge is to work out which cog goes where.

0:19:370:19:40

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

0:19:400:19:43

and flip Brunel to dislodge the coin,

0:19:430:19:45

and win yourself a Year Sphere.

0:19:450:19:46

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

0:19:460:19:51

HORN SOUNDS

0:19:510:19:53

So, here goes Carrera attempting Barmy Brunel.

0:19:530:19:56

That's not going to work. I can't believe she's left it there

0:19:560:19:58

but, clearly, that is not in contact with the driving cog

0:19:580:20:02

and neither's that one.

0:20:020:20:04

All cogs standing completely isolated from each other,

0:20:040:20:07

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

0:20:070:20:10

Dave, I have to say,

0:20:100:20:11

if Carrera does manage to do this, can I keep the coin?

0:20:110:20:16

I'll put it up for auction on the rat auction site - Fleabay!

0:20:160:20:18

Ha, ha, Fleabay!

0:20:180:20:19

RATTUS LAUGHS

0:20:190:20:21

Yeah, right.

0:20:210:20:22

Here goes a piece that's finally fitting, that's lovely,

0:20:220:20:26

she's got one that actually tessellates

0:20:260:20:28

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

0:20:280:20:31

This isn't going to work, in my book.

0:20:310:20:33

Dave, could you please give us a definition of the word tessellate?

0:20:330:20:37

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

0:20:370:20:41

That doesn't work. Don't think that works.

0:20:410:20:44

I think you're absolutely right, Carrera, well done for replacing it.

0:20:440:20:47

Now, this looks interesting.

0:20:470:20:48

Is that going to fit in with the driving cog?

0:20:480:20:51

Yes, it is.

0:20:510:20:52

Yes, it's there.

0:20:520:20:54

She's learning, you've got to admire that,

0:20:540:20:56

she is learning as she goes on.

0:20:560:20:59

That bit is still floating independently from the other...

0:20:590:21:02

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

0:21:020:21:05

Oh! But she's taken it off, she's taken it off!

0:21:050:21:07

Oh, dear, oh, dear! I'm not sure that's going to work quite as well.

0:21:070:21:11

'30 seconds remaining.'

0:21:110:21:14

We've got 30 seconds left and she's taken off bits

0:21:140:21:16

that were in the right place. Let's hope she doesn't take that first...

0:21:160:21:20

She's taken another one!

0:21:200:21:21

She's having a bit of a panic.

0:21:210:21:22

Oh, that's the other one that was fitting,

0:21:220:21:25

she's taken off all the bits that were in the right place.

0:21:250:21:27

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

0:21:270:21:31

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

0:21:310:21:35

he might want the Heimlich manoeuvre

0:21:350:21:37

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

0:21:370:21:39

I can tell you that for nothing.

0:21:390:21:41

She's desperately just trying everything

0:21:410:21:43

and she's run out of time.

0:21:430:21:46

Bad luck, Carrera, it wasn't to be this time.

0:21:460:21:48

She's out! That was extraordinary.

0:21:480:21:50

Well done, you were keen to get back.

0:21:500:21:52

Bad luck, Carrera, bad luck.

0:21:520:21:55

What happened there?

0:21:550:21:57

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

0:21:570:22:00

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

0:22:000:22:03

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

0:22:030:22:05

but you just didn't quite finish it off.

0:22:050:22:08

So, no year sphere I'm afraid.

0:22:080:22:09

Time for the final round, over to the Gory Grid

0:22:090:22:11

one last time to find out what we've got.

0:22:110:22:14

It's the Rotten Romans.

0:22:140:22:17

There's no quirky quiz in this final round,

0:22:170:22:19

it's straight to our big All Play Roman End Game.

0:22:190:22:21

So, everyone, get down that time sewer.

0:22:210:22:24

Woo!

0:22:260:22:27

Whee!

0:22:270:22:29

Roman Emperor Vitellius was famous for eating like an absolute pig.

0:22:340:22:39

In fact, he liked four feasts a day.

0:22:390:22:41

He even invented his own dish,

0:22:410:22:43

a pie made out of the brains of pheasants

0:22:430:22:45

and the tongues of flamingos.

0:22:450:22:47

It's time to play...

0:22:470:22:48

Horrible Historians, your challenge is simple,

0:22:500:22:52

to stuff Vitellius's gob.

0:22:520:22:54

Collect the pies and fling them into his mouth.

0:22:540:22:57

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

0:22:570:23:00

within the time limit, wins the year sphere.

0:23:000:23:03

But be warned, half way through, a servant is going to spill

0:23:030:23:06

a cauldron of garum sauce made out of rotten fish guts.

0:23:060:23:10

Yum!

0:23:100:23:12

You would say that. So, things might get a bit slippy.

0:23:120:23:15

Ready, steady, fling those pies.

0:23:150:23:17

So, here we go then with Foul Feast.

0:23:170:23:20

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

0:23:200:23:23

and two have gone in already, well, what a start that was.

0:23:230:23:25

There's a fish, thrown like a dart, it's in!

0:23:250:23:28

Tremendous effort, tremendous effort.

0:23:280:23:31

Emperor Vitellius's catering supervisor, Keithus Maximus,

0:23:310:23:34

working overtime at the end there.

0:23:340:23:36

He really is a terrific catering supervisor,

0:23:360:23:38

we're very lucky to have him.

0:23:380:23:39

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

0:23:390:23:42

Look at that pie thrown by Sonnyboy, he's in the lead

0:23:420:23:45

but that one fell short. Now grapes, more grapes.

0:23:450:23:47

Oh, there's a... Grapes going in there, lovely shot from Aaron!

0:23:470:23:51

Oh, what a fling that was from Sonnyboy, a tremendous fling.

0:23:510:23:55

There's a flat fish, not so lucky there from Carrera

0:23:550:23:58

but how will Sonnyboy do with his flat fish?

0:23:580:24:00

Oh, winged him on the side of the mouth, that must have smarted.

0:24:000:24:04

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

0:24:040:24:06

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

0:24:060:24:09

everyone going with grapes! It's grape afternoon

0:24:090:24:11

all afternoon here at the Foul Feast.

0:24:110:24:14

And it's a good job Keithus Maximus's dad owns a vineyard.

0:24:140:24:17

Maximus Maximus, big in grapes, big in life!

0:24:170:24:19

That's not relevant now.

0:24:190:24:21

Oh, there's the garum sauce!

0:24:210:24:23

There's the garum sauce and, I have to say, it is going to get much,

0:24:230:24:26

much more slippery out there now.

0:24:260:24:28

Someone's looking at a wipeout.

0:24:280:24:31

Let's see, who's going to slip in the garum sauce first?

0:24:310:24:35

It's Sonnyboy, Sonnyboy went first.

0:24:350:24:37

You're absolutely right, Rattus.

0:24:370:24:39

There he goes again, disappearing from view almost completely.

0:24:390:24:43

Sonnyboy's hit the deck a few times.

0:24:430:24:45

-Oh, they're all at it now.

-'Time's up.'

0:24:450:24:47

It's all over here.

0:24:470:24:49

Sonnyboy and Aaron have tied it.

0:24:490:24:51

And Keithus Maximus is absolutely furious cos he's got to clear it up.

0:24:510:24:55

Welcome back.

0:24:550:24:57

You've got yourself cleaned up I'm glad to see, lovely.

0:24:570:25:00

Well, that was very exciting.

0:25:000:25:02

With three each were Sonnyboy and Aaron.

0:25:020:25:04

So, Sonnyboy, if you'd like to pick another year sphere first.

0:25:040:25:08

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

0:25:100:25:12

That is all the year spheres awarded.

0:25:120:25:15

Did you know, when Emperor Vitellius was so full at a feast

0:25:150:25:18

that he couldn't eat any more,

0:25:180:25:20

he would tickle his throat with a feather

0:25:200:25:22

so he'd be sick and could start eating all over again?

0:25:220:25:24

I made myself sick with a long feather once, yeah,

0:25:240:25:27

was still attached to the chicken I was chasing.

0:25:270:25:30

Yes. It's time to add up your year sphere totals.

0:25:320:25:34

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

0:25:340:25:38

There we go, 1086 AD.

0:25:380:25:40

That's the Domesday Book, written that year.

0:25:400:25:42

There goes the second one,

0:25:420:25:43

1815 AD, the Battle of Waterloo.

0:25:430:25:47

64 AD,

0:25:470:25:48

that was the year that Rome burnt down.

0:25:480:25:51

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

0:25:510:25:53

and you've ended up with a score of 2,965,

0:25:530:25:58

which is excellent.

0:25:580:25:59

Carrera, can you match that?

0:25:590:26:01

Let's have a look at your first one.

0:26:010:26:03

Oh, dear me, 2532 BC,

0:26:030:26:05

the great Egyptian Sphinx was finished about that time.

0:26:050:26:08

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:26:080:26:10

Oh, dear.

0:26:100:26:11

2.5 million BC.

0:26:110:26:13

-Mmm.

-Oh, no.

0:26:130:26:15

Stone Age man started to use tools round about then.

0:26:150:26:18

Carrera, that gives you a total of minus 2,502,532.

0:26:180:26:25

Oh, dear me.

0:26:250:26:26

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

0:26:260:26:29

What have you got in your first sphere?

0:26:290:26:31

Oh, dear, 8,000 BC!

0:26:320:26:35

Woolly mammoths died out about that time

0:26:350:26:37

as did your chances of winning.

0:26:370:26:39

Let's have a look at your second one.

0:26:390:26:42

Oh, it's 1042 AD.

0:26:420:26:43

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

0:26:430:26:47

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

0:26:470:26:49

Today's champion, with a score of 2,965 points,

0:26:510:26:55

is Sonnyboy

0:26:550:26:57

Yay!

0:26:570:26:59

Yay, who will be taking home our star prize

0:26:590:27:02

and there really is nothing like a proper trophy

0:27:020:27:04

and this is nothing like a proper trophy because, once again,

0:27:040:27:08

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

0:27:080:27:11

What is it, Rattus?

0:27:110:27:12

-Are you a First World War soldier?

-No.

0:27:120:27:15

-Getting cold in the freezing trenches this winter?

-No.

0:27:150:27:17

Then what you need is a nice tub of whale fat.

0:27:170:27:20

Nooo!

0:27:200:27:23

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

0:27:230:27:26

Congratulations, Sonnyboy!

0:27:260:27:28

-Sonnyboy, I'm so sorry, there you go, well done.

-Thank you.

0:27:280:27:32

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

0:27:320:27:35

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

0:27:350:27:38

-and no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

-Anytime.

0:27:380:27:41

You've been watching Gory Games. Goodbye.

0:27:410:27:43

# 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

# Have you had your fill of blood, guts and gore

0:27:510:27:53

# Or have we left you still wanting more?

0:27:530:27:56

# Well, keep watching

0:27:560:27:58

# We'll be back again

0:27:580:28:00

# With Horrible History's Gory Games

0:28:000:28:03

# Horrible History's Gory Games. #

Dave is pretty fed up with Rattus' new game Plopscotch. He's definitely going to need a change of shirt. The Horrible Historians try to work out how to build a pyramid and make two identical portraits of Queen Elizabeth. They watch out for Emperor Vitellius, and a cauldron of truly horrible Garum Sauce.
