# If mummies, rats and fleas ain't your thing

0:00:030:00:05

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

0:00:050:00:07

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

0:00:070:00:10

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

0:00:100:00:13

# Still watching, then let's test your brains

# Horrible History's Gory...Games. #

0:00:200:00:24

Welcome to Gory Games with me Dave Lamb.

0:00:240:00:27

-And me! What's my name?

-Are you all right?

0:00:270:00:30

I was in my dressing room

0:00:300:00:32

and a woman came in, screamed and someone hit me with a shovel.

0:00:320:00:37

-That's an occupational hazard for a rat.

-Ooh! I'm a rat?

0:00:370:00:41

-That would explain the hairy arms and the whiskers.

-Yep.

0:00:410:00:45

This is where you get to test your Horrible History knowledge.

0:00:450:00:51

-It's coming back to me.

-Try to keep quiet. Let's meet our Historians.

0:00:510:00:56

-Hi, I'm Christian.

-Hi, I'm Isabel.

-Hi, I'm Harry.

-Excellent.

0:00:560:01:01

Let's get the show started with a warm up game I've come up with

0:01:010:01:06

-called man-eating cats!

-No! No way, not on my watch, all right?

0:01:060:01:10

We are not having dangerous man-eating cats in the studio.

0:01:100:01:16

-I didn't mean cats that eat men.

-Thank goodness.

0:01:160:01:20

I meant a man who eats cats. There was one who used to do it

0:01:200:01:25

for the crowds as part of a Georgian sideshow and eat the dead ones,

0:01:250:01:29

but I thought it would be much more fun if we ate a real one.

0:01:290:01:34

-First person to eat it wins.

-No, no, no. Absolutely not.

0:01:340:01:39

-Don't worry, you won't have to eat a cat.

-Why not? He'd eat me.

0:01:390:01:43

Wait a minute. That's Socks. That's the Blue Peter cat!

0:01:430:01:48

We are at the BBC. Where did you think I was going to get a cat from?

0:01:480:01:53

Are you trying to get us fired? I'll take him back. Come on, Socks.

0:01:530:01:58

You spoil sport.

0:01:580:02:00

-Feeling better?

-Much, thank you, Dave.

0:02:000:02:04

Christian, Isabel, Harry, you are playing for year spheres.

0:02:040:02:08

Each one contains a historical date.

0:02:080:02:11

Your year sphere dates will be added up with AD dates

0:02:110:02:15

being added to your total and BC dates being subtracted from it.

0:02:150:02:19

If these were your year spheres we'd add 1215 then subtract 480

0:02:190:02:24

-giving us a total of?

-735.

-That bang really has messed with your brain.

0:02:240:02:30

The person with the highest score will win an amazing prize.

0:02:300:02:35

Yes. I imagine a games console, a widescreen TV.

0:02:350:02:38

Forget that and imagine some rubbish that he's dragged out of the sewer

0:02:380:02:42

-cos that's what you're getting.

-I usually clean off most of the poo.

0:02:420:02:46

Bonus! Let's get cracking and to find out what this round's about,

0:02:460:02:49

it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:02:490:02:51

It's the awful Egyptians.

0:02:510:02:54

Four questions as always and here are you four Egyptian topics:

0:02:540:02:58

Mummies, Soldiers, Tutankhamun and Pyramids.

0:02:580:03:03

-Christian, it's your turn to pick. What are you going for?

-Pyramids.

0:03:030:03:06

Pyramids. That is a prop question.

0:03:060:03:10

Oh, prop question, prop question, prop question, prop quest...

0:03:100:03:14

You're going to stop doing that now. True or false.

0:03:140:03:16

Pyramid workers were paid partly in radishes and garlic.

0:03:160:03:21

Let's see those answers now, please.

0:03:210:03:24

Christian and Isabel agreeing on true. Harry on his own with false.

0:03:240:03:28

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

0:03:280:03:31

After pulling huge stone bricks all day in the hot sun

0:03:310:03:34

I suspect pongy breath was the least of their worries.

0:03:340:03:37

-Fancy some of that?

-No. Gives you pongy breath.

0:03:370:03:39

That'll be the least of your worries as well.

0:03:390:03:42

-Isabel, let's pick a topic please.

-Mummies.

-Let's hear that question.

0:03:420:03:47

True or false. In Egyptian history, mummification sometimes went wrong.

0:03:470:03:53

and when a Mummie's arms dropped off they used a stick instead.

0:03:530:03:57

Is it true or is it false? OK. Everyone in total agreement.

0:03:570:04:02

They've all gone for true. Are they all right or wrong?

0:04:020:04:05

It's true. You need some big old sticks to replace these guns though.

0:04:050:04:09

Check out these babies.

0:04:090:04:11

-OK. Harry, your turn to pick a topic.

-Tutankhamun.

-Tutankhamun.

0:04:110:04:17

-That's a question from my colleague, Mr Rattus Rattus.

-I thank you.

0:04:170:04:21

True or false.

0:04:210:04:23

Tutankhamun's tomb was cursed so all the archaeologists

0:04:230:04:27

who discovered it, died soon after they entered it.

0:04:270:04:31

Is that true or false? Show me now. Isabel and Harry think it's true.

0:04:310:04:35

Christian out on his own with false. Who's right, Rattus?

0:04:350:04:39

Ah! It's false, I'm afraid.

0:04:390:04:42

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

0:04:420:04:46

Howard Carter, the lead archaeologist,

0:04:460:04:49

lived for another 17 years, so don't believe everything you read.

0:04:490:04:54

OK. One question left in this round. It's a question on Soldiers.

0:04:540:04:59

True or false. Ordinary Egyptian soldiers wore ornate metal helmets.

0:04:590:05:05

There we go. The boys agreeing on false.

0:05:050:05:08

Isabel on her own with true. Who's right?

0:05:080:05:11

It's false. Only officers had metal helmets.

0:05:110:05:14

Ordinary soldiers protected their heads by growing their hair thick.

0:05:140:05:18

-Tough luck if you were bald.

-That's the end of the round

0:05:180:05:22

and we can see that Christian has won the first year sphere

0:05:220:05:25

but be warned, some of them could contain

0:05:250:05:28

a Stone Age date which could be worth a few million minus points.

0:05:280:05:32

Push, push, push, push... Here's a hint, Christian!

0:05:320:05:36

Pick a gold shiny one.

0:05:360:05:38

Oh, he's got good reach. Are you sure?

0:05:380:05:42

-Yeah.

-Okey dokey. Push, push, push, push!

0:05:420:05:46

Christian, you are through to play the Egyptian game,

0:05:460:05:49

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

0:05:490:05:52

Let's find out.

0:05:520:05:54

It's an all play silly game, so that means it's off

0:05:570:06:02

down the Time Sewer with the lot of you. Lead the way, Harry.

0:06:020:06:07

Now the ancient Egyptians were so smart that they built giant pyramids

0:06:120:06:16

and invented clocks that ran on water.

0:06:160:06:18

Hard to believe then that they also thought

0:06:180:06:20

human fly traps were a good idea. Yes, it's time to play...

0:06:200:06:23

Flies were such a problem in ancient Egypt, King Pepi had honey

0:06:260:06:29

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

0:06:290:06:33

You are a honey slave.

0:06:330:06:34

Your challenge - to catch as many flies as possible.

0:06:340:06:38

The person who catches the most flies in the time limit

0:06:380:06:41

wins the Year Sphere

0:06:410:06:42

and here come those flies. In 3, 2, 1.

0:06:420:06:46

-SIREN SOUNDS

-Here we go then with Honey Slaves

0:06:460:06:49

and remember the flies have to stick to their paddles,

0:06:490:06:52

which are sticky on both sides, Rattus,

0:06:520:06:54

or their costumes, which are very much like honey.

0:06:540:06:58

They certainly are, Dave.

0:06:580:07:00

They also look a bit like custard monsters.

0:07:000:07:03

They do, you're absolutely right.

0:07:030:07:06

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

0:07:060:07:09

Come on, Rattus. Let's not get involved.

0:07:090:07:12

They've got a lot to be concentrating on.

0:07:120:07:15

They don't need to be sorting out your lunch

0:07:150:07:19

or your dinner.

0:07:190:07:20

Lots of flies coming out now.

0:07:200:07:22

Look at that! Little rush of them.

0:07:220:07:24

Must have disturbed a nest.

0:07:240:07:26

nearly stuck to each others' paddles there.

0:07:260:07:30

Terrible thing about this game,

0:07:300:07:32

You can get stuck together if you're not careful.

0:07:320:07:34

You certainly can.

0:07:340:07:36

And look at this.

0:07:360:07:37

Christian is aiming for them with his paddle

0:07:370:07:40

but a few are getting stuck to his chest.

0:07:400:07:44

He is now part covered in flies.

0:07:440:07:47

Look at that.

0:07:470:07:48

He's now winning by a considerable margin.

0:07:480:07:52

Isabel lagging behind.

0:07:520:07:54

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

0:07:540:07:58

That's the first time we've seen a fly there.

0:07:580:08:00

He's really attracting the flies.

0:08:000:08:02

I don't know if he's sprayed himself in something,

0:08:020:08:05

but he's winning this by a country mile.

0:08:050:08:08

SIREN BLARES

0:08:080:08:09

Time's up.

0:08:090:08:11

And it's all over. For my money, if you ever get

0:08:110:08:14

an infestation of flies in your house, there's your man.

0:08:140:08:16

Get behind your podiums. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

0:08:180:08:22

Christian, I've never seen a man

0:08:220:08:23

more covered in flies than you just were.

0:08:230:08:26

-Talk me through it.

-Well, I was just like...

0:08:260:08:29

Ah, so if they missed the bat, they landed on you?

0:08:290:08:31

Yeah.

0:08:310:08:33

Winner of the Year Sphere, with a new Gory Games record,

0:08:330:08:36

it's Christian.

0:08:360:08:38

Help yourself to another Year Sphere, Christian. Excellent.

0:08:380:08:41

-Dave?

-Yes?

0:08:410:08:44

Is it true that King Pepi had to prove his fitness to rule

0:08:440:08:47

-by running around the pyramid every 30 years?

-I believe so, yes.

0:08:470:08:50

Wow!

0:08:500:08:52

So you would have had to do that about six times already

0:08:520:08:54

-because you're old!

-He did understand it.

0:08:540:08:57

-Ha-ha-ha!

-OK.

0:08:570:08:58

Onto round 2 and to find out what's up next, it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:08:580:09:03

It's the frightful First World War.

0:09:030:09:06

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

0:09:060:09:09

-Don't know what you're looking at me for.

-You're a rat.

0:09:150:09:18

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

0:09:180:09:20

What's it going to be?

0:09:200:09:22

Rats.

0:09:220:09:24

That is a question from Sir Rattus of Rattus.

0:09:240:09:27

Who was known by World War I soldiers

0:09:270:09:31

as rats after mouldy cheese?

0:09:310:09:34

Was it...

0:09:340:09:36

Let's have a look at those answers.

0:09:420:09:43

OK.

0:09:430:09:45

So the boys agreeing on B. Isabel on her own with A.

0:09:450:09:48

Who, if anyone, Rattus, is correct?

0:09:480:09:50

Well...

0:09:500:09:53

Isabel is absolutely right with A. It was, in fact, doctors and nurses.

0:09:530:09:57

They came from the Royal Army Medical Corp

0:09:570:10:00

whose initials are RAMC,

0:10:000:10:02

the same initials as Rats After Mouldy Cheese.

0:10:020:10:05

The rat knows all!

0:10:050:10:07

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

-Slang.

0:10:070:10:10

Let's hear that question.

0:10:100:10:13

What was the trenches slang for toilet paper?

0:10:130:10:17

Show me your answers everyone. OK.

0:10:220:10:24

The boys agreeing again, with A. Isabel again out on her own with C.

0:10:240:10:28

What's the answer?

0:10:280:10:29

The answer is A.

0:10:290:10:31

Bumf. It was short for bum fodder.

0:10:310:10:34

Food for your bottom!

0:10:340:10:37

He just said food for your bottom!

0:10:370:10:40

RATTUS CACKLES

0:10:400:10:41

Food for your bottom! Food for your bottom!

0:10:410:10:45

-Finished?

-Bottom.

0:10:450:10:47

One more bottom. Lovely.

0:10:470:10:48

Christian, your turn to pick a topic.

0:10:480:10:50

Trenches.

0:10:500:10:51

Trenches.

0:10:510:10:54

Your question is...

0:10:540:10:57

Let's see those answers now please.

0:11:050:11:08

OK. All three answers different.

0:11:080:11:10

Let's see which one was right.

0:11:100:11:12

The answer is...

0:11:120:11:15

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

0:11:160:11:20

-That's horrible, but it's true.

-It is indeed.

0:11:200:11:24

So, the final question this round

0:11:240:11:26

is on MI5 and here it comes.

0:11:260:11:29

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

0:11:290:11:34

but who did they sometimes use as messengers?

0:11:340:11:36

Let's see those answers now please.

0:11:420:11:44

Again, all three answers appearing.

0:11:440:11:47

Let's find out who's right.

0:11:470:11:49

The answer is...

0:11:490:11:51

MI5 used Girl Guides as secret messengers.

0:11:520:11:55

Wonder if you got a badge for that?

0:11:550:11:57

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

0:11:570:12:00

So, that's the end of the round. Two points each for Harry and Isabel.

0:12:000:12:04

Fingers on buzzers please because this is the tie break question.

0:12:040:12:07

Beginning with the letter G, what did soldiers have to wear

0:12:070:12:10

on their face to stop their lungs filling up with poison?

0:12:100:12:13

Isabel?

0:12:130:12:14

Gas masks.

0:12:140:12:15

Gas mask is absolutely right.

0:12:150:12:17

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

0:12:170:12:20

Please collect it now. Isabel, as the quiz winner,

0:12:200:12:23

you're also through to play the World War One game

0:12:230:12:26

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

0:12:260:12:30

Let's find out.

0:12:300:12:31

It's a single player silly game.

0:12:350:12:38

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

0:12:380:12:43

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

0:12:450:12:48

made even worse by all the rats.

0:12:480:12:51

It's time to play...

0:12:510:12:53

Just like in the trenches, you've got to splat some rats.

0:12:550:12:58

I'm not listening! # La, la, la, la! #

0:12:580:13:02

Whack 15 rats within the time limit to win the Year Sphere

0:13:020:13:05

and your time starts now.

0:13:050:13:07

SIREN BLARES

0:13:070:13:08

So, here goes Isabel,

0:13:080:13:09

attempting to Vanquish Vile Vermin

0:13:090:13:12

Rattus, you might want to look away here.

0:13:120:13:16

I've a horrible feeling

0:13:160:13:18

Isabel crowned me at the top of the show!

0:13:180:13:21

Turns out Isabel crowned Rattus

0:13:210:13:24

at the start of the show

0:13:240:13:25

and that is surely a police matter.

0:13:250:13:28

That helmet isn't enough to protect that rat

0:13:280:13:31

from the inevitable concussion.

0:13:310:13:33

So, Isabel has six bomps and she needs 15.

0:13:330:13:36

She's doing well.

0:13:360:13:38

Seems very unfair to me, Dave.

0:13:390:13:41

Isabel comes across as being

0:13:410:13:43

such a loving, caring, considerate child

0:13:430:13:45

when, in fact, in reality, she's a monster!

0:13:450:13:48

Well, that's the thing. Rats shouldn't be there

0:13:480:13:51

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

0:13:510:13:53

They're all wearing protective helmets now.

0:13:530:13:56

It seems to have caught on.

0:13:560:13:58

You might want one yourself, maybe a little bandana.

0:13:580:14:01

You'd look quite nice.

0:14:010:14:03

Well, a bandana's not going to afford me

0:14:030:14:05

any protection from a spade, is it? You clown!

0:14:050:14:08

All right! Dear, oh dear!

0:14:080:14:10

Isabel has done it! Well, superb.

0:14:100:14:13

15 rats bashed on the head

0:14:130:14:15

and Isabel, the smiling assassin has done it.

0:14:150:14:18

Well done, Isabel. Congratulations.

0:14:180:14:22

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:14:220:14:24

The soldiers didn't just whack rats

0:14:240:14:26

that voluntarily popped their heads up.

0:14:260:14:28

Sometimes they'd smoke the rats out of their burrows using explosives.

0:14:280:14:32

Forcing us out of our homes! I mean, honestly, you people

0:14:320:14:36

are whatever the equivalent is of inhumane.

0:14:360:14:38

In-rat-humane. Huh! Or in-rat-aid.

0:14:380:14:41

Has anyone got a dictionary?

0:14:410:14:44

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

0:14:440:14:47

It's the Terrible Tudors.

0:14:470:14:49

And your four Tudor topics are...

0:14:490:14:51

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

0:14:560:14:59

Cures.

0:14:590:15:01

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

0:15:010:15:05

I thank you.

0:15:050:15:07

One cure for sickness in Tudor times was known as fustigation

0:15:070:15:11

but what did it involve? Was it...

0:15:110:15:14

A - fanning someone to give them air.

0:15:140:15:17

B - sitting in a smoke filled room.

0:15:170:15:19

Or C - beating them with a stick.

0:15:190:15:22

A, B or C? Show me now.

0:15:220:15:24

Ooh, interesting. Isabel and Harry agreeing with B.

0:15:240:15:28

Christian out on his own with C.

0:15:280:15:31

Rattus, what's the answer?

0:15:310:15:32

The answer is...

0:15:320:15:34

C - beating them with a stick.

0:15:340:15:37

-Christian, your turn to choose a topic.

-Deaths.

0:15:370:15:40

See what you make of this one.

0:15:420:15:44

Let's see your answers.

0:15:590:16:00

OK, the boys agreeing with B.

0:16:000:16:03

Isabel on her own this time with A. Let's find out.

0:16:030:16:06

The answer is...

0:16:060:16:09

9 out of 10 Tudors died before their 40th birthday.

0:16:090:16:13

-Dave?

-Yeah.

-Can you remember your 40th birthday

0:16:130:16:17

or do your memories not go that far back?

0:16:170:16:19

-HE SIGHS

-OK.

0:16:190:16:21

Let's just ignore Rattus. Isabel, your turn to pick a topic.

0:16:210:16:24

Palaces.

0:16:240:16:26

Palaces. Let's hear the question.

0:16:260:16:28

I had a huge palace built in Surrey that was to be the biggest

0:16:280:16:32

of all my building projects, a celebration of the power

0:16:320:16:35

of the Tudor dynasty. But what did I call it?

0:16:350:16:38

Let's see your answers now please.

0:16:450:16:48

OK. Total agreement on that one. Everybody thinks it's C.

0:16:480:16:51

All right or all wrong?

0:16:510:16:53

The answer's B. I called it Nonsuch Palace.

0:16:530:16:57

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

0:16:570:17:00

Get it? No such? Nonsuch?

0:17:000:17:03

But I don't hear you laughing.

0:17:030:17:05

FORCED LAUGHTER

0:17:050:17:08

That's more like it.

0:17:080:17:09

You don't want to upset him.

0:17:090:17:11

OK. To the final question in this round and it is a question on tax.

0:17:110:17:15

Let's hear what it is.

0:17:150:17:17

My daughter Elizabeth I enforced a tax

0:17:170:17:20

which only men could pay,

0:17:200:17:22

but what was it a tax on?

0:17:220:17:24

Do you all have an answer in your heads?

0:17:290:17:31

Let's see those answers now please.

0:17:310:17:33

Christian, you and Isabel have agreed on A.

0:17:330:17:36

Harry has gone for B. What's the answer?

0:17:360:17:38

The answer is...

0:17:380:17:40

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

0:17:400:17:43

Actually what do I care? Tudor monarchs don't pay tax. Ha ha!

0:17:430:17:48

So at the end of that round,

0:17:480:17:51

Christian and Isabel level on two points each.

0:17:510:17:53

It's fingers on buzzers for you two.

0:17:530:17:55

Here we go with the tie break question.

0:17:550:17:57

Beginning with the letter E, what is the name of King Henry VIII's

0:17:570:18:01

son and heir who died as a teenager.

0:18:010:18:04

Edward.

0:18:040:18:05

Edward is absolutely right, Christian. Well done.

0:18:050:18:08

Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:18:080:18:11

So, winning the quiz means that Christian is automatically through

0:18:110:18:15

to play the Tudor game, but will he be alone

0:18:150:18:17

or will the others get to play too? Let's find out.

0:18:170:18:20

It's an all play brainy game.

0:18:240:18:26

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

0:18:260:18:29

Elizabeth I liked to look good in her portraits,

0:18:390:18:42

which meant they had to look nothing like her.

0:18:420:18:44

Smallpox scars and years of wearing poisonous lead make-up,

0:18:440:18:48

meant her good looks were long lost.

0:18:480:18:50

So Elizabeth made artists copy paintings of her as a young woman

0:18:500:18:53

rather than paint how she really looked.

0:18:530:18:55

It's time to play...

0:18:550:18:57

Your challenge is to assemble two perfect copies

0:19:000:19:03

of an Elizabeth portrait.

0:19:030:19:04

The only problem is your two puzzles are made out of different pieces.

0:19:040:19:08

Complete your puzzles quickest to win the year sphere.

0:19:080:19:11

In 3, 2, 1.

0:19:110:19:13

SIREN BLARES

0:19:130:19:15

Here we go then with Puzzling Portraits.

0:19:150:19:18

Christian in green, Harry in yellow

0:19:180:19:20

and the rat murderer... Sorry! Isabel in brown.

0:19:200:19:24

The girls are normally good at this.

0:19:240:19:27

Very good at thinking in two areas at once.

0:19:270:19:31

They're very adept at multi-skilling, Dave.

0:19:310:19:33

I'm not stereotyping in anyway, shape or form.

0:19:330:19:36

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

0:19:360:19:40

Rattus, we'll get letters now!

0:19:400:19:42

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

0:19:420:19:45

Isabel has made a tremendous start.

0:19:450:19:47

Two portraits well under way.

0:19:470:19:48

That one on the left there all but done.

0:19:480:19:51

I can clearly make out Queen Elizabeth I there

0:19:510:19:54

in her younger days, of course.

0:19:540:19:56

As she got older,

0:19:560:19:57

she got rather less attractive than that.

0:19:570:20:00

-Yeah, her teeth fell out.

-Harry, here he comes.

0:20:000:20:03

Doing extremely well. Look at this!

0:20:030:20:05

He is well under way.

0:20:050:20:07

Very impressed with that performance,

0:20:070:20:09

but Isabel's really getting the job done here.

0:20:090:20:13

She's doing very well. A textbook performance.

0:20:130:20:16

Harry also doing well.

0:20:160:20:19

Christian lagging a little bit behind.

0:20:190:20:22

Isabel really getting there now.

0:20:220:20:25

Doing extremely well. Christian a long way off.

0:20:250:20:28

A bit hanging over the frame there,

0:20:280:20:30

but he won't trouble the winner here.

0:20:300:20:33

The winner about to be decided.

0:20:330:20:35

She seems to have three or four pieces left.

0:20:350:20:38

Harry's doing extremely well. Wait a minute!

0:20:380:20:41

Could be a late run from Harry,

0:20:410:20:42

but he's left it too late.

0:20:420:20:44

Just one more piece for Isabel now.

0:20:440:20:46

There it is. She's done it!

0:20:460:20:49

There she is, celebrating with the double fist pump,

0:20:490:20:52

the slight bounce, the ponytail swish.

0:20:520:20:54

It's a three way celebration and it's much deserved.

0:20:540:20:58

Isabel help yourself to another Year Sphere. Well done.

0:20:580:21:01

Isabel, you were absolutely magnificent. Did you find it easy?

0:21:010:21:05

-No.

-Ever done two puzzles at once?

0:21:050:21:08

No.

0:21:080:21:10

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

-Never.

0:21:100:21:13

-That'll be it, your one time.

-Yeah.

-Superb.

0:21:130:21:16

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

0:21:160:21:20

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

0:21:200:21:24

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

0:21:240:21:28

I'll take a wild guess. Wee?

0:21:280:21:29

Yes, wee! How did you know?

0:21:290:21:32

Well, if you find it funny, it's probably got something to do

0:21:320:21:35

with number ones or number twos.

0:21:350:21:37

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

0:21:370:21:41

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

0:21:410:21:44

It's the Rotten Romans.

0:21:440:21:47

But there's no quirky quiz in our final round.

0:21:470:21:50

It's straight to our big all-play Roman end game.

0:21:500:21:53

So, everyone limber up.

0:21:530:21:55

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

0:21:550:21:59

Whenever Roman Emperor Vitellius wasn't eating,

0:22:010:22:05

he liked to be eating.

0:22:050:22:07

Yes, old Vitellius liked to have four feasts a day

0:22:070:22:10

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

0:22:100:22:12

It's time to play...

0:22:120:22:14

Collect Emperor Vitellius' favourite pheasant brain

0:22:160:22:19

and flamingo tongue pies, grapes and fish, and fling them into his mouth.

0:22:190:22:23

The person who gets the most in within the time limit

0:22:230:22:26

wins the Year Sphere but, be warned, halfway through,

0:22:260:22:30

a servant is going to spill a cauldron of garum sauce

0:22:300:22:34

-made out of rotten fish guts.

-Yummy!

0:22:340:22:37

So things will get mighty slippy. Ready, steady,

0:22:370:22:40

Fling those pies!

0:22:400:22:41

SIREN BLARES

0:22:410:22:43

Here we got then with foul feast.

0:22:430:22:45

And Isabel scores immediately.

0:22:450:22:47

What a superb score that was.

0:22:470:22:49

Look at that refusal of the fish.

0:22:490:22:51

Oh, dear me. The Roman catering supervisor, Keithus Maximus,

0:22:510:22:55

will be very disappointed there.

0:22:550:22:57

He just hit Isabel in the mouth with that pie.

0:22:570:23:01

What is he playing at out there?

0:23:010:23:03

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

0:23:030:23:06

What a disgrace. Keithus, when he sees this back,

0:23:060:23:09

he'll be very, very disappointed.

0:23:090:23:11

Carrying on regardless. Well played, contestants.

0:23:110:23:14

Straight through.

0:23:140:23:15

Look at that,

0:23:150:23:17

the traditional custard pie chuck.

0:23:170:23:20

I love to see that.

0:23:200:23:22

I like a good custard pie chuck.

0:23:220:23:25

He's great at it as well, the custard pie chuck.

0:23:250:23:28

But not with a fish.

0:23:280:23:29

Terrible with a fish. It just doesn't work.

0:23:290:23:33

That's what you do with a fish - fin over tail.

0:23:330:23:37

Or under arm, works that way too.

0:23:370:23:39

No matter how you cut it,

0:23:390:23:42

Harry is in the lead.

0:23:420:23:44

He's throwing magnificently.

0:23:440:23:47

These fish have all been line caught,

0:23:470:23:50

not hauled in with a great big stinky net.

0:23:500:23:54

Christian draws level.

0:23:540:23:56

We are expecting the garum sauce

0:23:560:23:58

any moment, aren't we?

0:23:580:24:00

-It's coming!

-Oh!

0:24:000:24:03

Christian has taken that right on his head.

0:24:030:24:07

Never seen anyone drenched

0:24:070:24:09

in such a spectacular way.

0:24:090:24:11

We'll see him in a minute.

0:24:110:24:13

-Look at the state of him!

-Poor boy.

0:24:130:24:16

Absolutely covered in garum sauce, as is poor Isabel.

0:24:160:24:20

Dear oh dear! Harry's rolling around

0:24:200:24:23

on the floor like a puppy.

0:24:230:24:24

-Christian's down!

-Christian is down.

0:24:240:24:27

He's blinking it out of his eyes.

0:24:270:24:30

SIREN BLARES

0:24:300:24:31

There's the hooter.

0:24:310:24:33

It's over. Christian and Harry, both get Year Spheres

0:24:330:24:36

but one wonders if any of them will ever stand up again?

0:24:360:24:39

Back you come everyone. Well done. Well done.

0:24:390:24:43

-How was that for you?

-Gungy.

0:24:430:24:46

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

0:24:460:24:49

-What did it taste like?

-Vinegar.

-Horrible!

0:24:490:24:51

Christian, if you could take yours first, please.

0:24:510:24:55

And Harry, collect yours as well, please.

0:24:550:24:58

Despite being a total glutton himself,

0:24:580:25:01

Emperor Vitellius actually killed his own mum

0:25:010:25:04

by starving her to death.

0:25:040:25:05

The clue's in the name.

0:25:050:25:07

-Horrible Histories.

-Absolutely.

0:25:070:25:10

Time to count up those Year Spheres

0:25:100:25:12

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

0:25:120:25:17

Christian, we'll start with you.

0:25:170:25:19

Open up that first one.

0:25:190:25:21

1746 AD.

0:25:210:25:24

The Battle of Culloden.

0:25:240:25:26

377 BC.

0:25:270:25:29

It's bad, but it's not a disaster.

0:25:290:25:33

The death of Hippocrates, the father of medicine.

0:25:330:25:35

Let's have a look at the third one.

0:25:350:25:37

Oh, that's slightly worse. 4,000 BC.

0:25:380:25:42

Stone Age man started farming in Britain around that time.

0:25:420:25:46

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

0:25:460:25:49

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

0:25:490:25:51

It's 122 AD. Hadrian's Wall was built that year.

0:25:510:25:56

So Christian, you have ended up

0:25:560:25:59

with a score of -2509.

0:25:590:26:03

Isabel, it's your turn. Let's have a look at your first sphere please.

0:26:030:26:09

1348 AD.

0:26:090:26:11

The Black Death hit England that year, but good news for you.

0:26:110:26:15

Let's have a look at that second sphere.

0:26:150:26:18

1479 BC.

0:26:180:26:19

The Egyptian Queen Hatshepsut

0:26:190:26:23

came to the throne that year.

0:26:230:26:25

That takes you back into the minus points.

0:26:250:26:27

Your third sphere.

0:26:270:26:29

It's 1861 AD.

0:26:290:26:32

The death of Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert.

0:26:320:26:36

That means that you have gone into the lead, Isabel

0:26:360:26:39

and you have a total of 1,730

0:26:390:26:42

but, Isabel, you can be beaten by Harry.

0:26:420:26:45

Harry, lets have a look what you've got in that sphere.

0:26:450:26:48

It's 1014 AD.

0:26:480:26:50

King Swain Forkbeard became

0:26:500:26:53

the first Viking King of England

0:26:530:26:56

You've ended up with 1,014 points. It's not quite enough.

0:26:560:27:00

Isabel, you are today's winner.

0:27:000:27:02

And do we have a prize for you.

0:27:020:27:04

No seriously, do we have a prize for her?

0:27:040:27:06

Indeed we do, Dave.

0:27:060:27:09

I have sourced some beautiful French sausages from a 600 year old

0:27:090:27:13

recipe all the way from the picturesque city of Orleans.

0:27:130:27:16

Wow. Well they actually sound rather delicious.

0:27:160:27:19

Specifically from the Siege of Orleans

0:27:190:27:21

during the Hundred Years War when the trapped French peasants

0:27:210:27:25

got so hungry, they ate their own fingers.

0:27:250:27:28

-Bon appetit!

-I should have known.

0:27:280:27:31

Well con-rat-ulations, Isabel.

0:27:310:27:33

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

0:27:330:27:36

Please don't eat it.

0:27:360:27:38

It just remains for me to say thanks to Christian, to Isabel and to Harry

0:27:380:27:42

and no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

0:27:420:27:44

Your growing frustration is thanks enough, Dave.

0:27:440:27:47

-You've been watching Gory Games. Goodbye.

-Goodbye.

0:27:470:27:51

# Was that show messy enough for you

0:27:520:27:55

# Or would you have preferred

0:27:550:27:57

# A little more poo

# Have you had your fill

0:27:580:27:59

# We'll be back again

# With Horrible History's Gory Games

0:28:080:28:11
