Rattus.

0:00:020:00:03

-Rattus, we're on in five minutes.

-Eh?

-We're on in five minutes.

0:00:050:00:09

All right, then.

0:00:090:00:10

I'm just laying down some vocals on my brilliant new track.

0:00:100:00:13

-It's a guaranteed number two.

-Surely you mean number one.

0:00:130:00:16

-No, I always prefer number twos.

-Of course you do.

0:00:160:00:19

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

0:00:210:00:24

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

0:00:240:00:27

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

0:00:270:00:30

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

0:00:300:00:33

# Still watching

0:00:330:00:35

# Then let's test your brains

0:00:350:00:37

# With Horrible History's Gory Games

# Horrible history's Gory

# Games. #

0:00:420:00:44

Hello and welcome to Gory Games.

0:00:440:00:46

-I'm Dave Lamb.

-And I'm Rat.i.am.

-Rat.i.am?

0:00:460:00:50

Yeah, you're not in the music biz, Dave, you wouldn't understand.

0:00:500:00:53

Great start. Let's meet today's Horrible Historians.

0:00:530:00:57

Hi. My name is Edward and I'm from Buckingham.

0:00:570:01:00

Hi. I'm Inaaya and I'm from Essex.

0:01:020:01:04

Hi. I'm Jasmine and I'm from Yorkshire.

0:01:060:01:08

Welcome, everyone. Right, you lot are here to win Year Spheres.

0:01:120:01:16

The person with the highest year score at the end of the show

0:01:160:01:19

will win a terrible prize yanked out of the time sewer by Rattus Rattus.

0:01:190:01:23

And by terrible, Dave means brilliant.

0:01:230:01:26

I know what I mean.

0:01:260:01:28

Time to crack on with round one.

0:01:280:01:30

Let's find out what it's about by going over to the Gory Grid.

0:01:300:01:33

It's the Awesome USA.

0:01:340:01:37

So four questions then on the Awesome USA.

0:01:370:01:41

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

0:01:410:01:44

and your four Awesome USA topics are:

0:01:440:01:47

Space Travel, Dr Seuss,

0:01:470:01:50

Presidents and Fails.

0:01:500:01:52

So Jasmine, you get to go first in this first round.

0:01:520:01:56

-Which of those takes your fancy?

-Fails.

0:01:560:01:58

OK, dudes, in 1876 Big Jim Kennally from Chicago

0:01:580:02:03

failed in an attempt to do what?

0:02:030:02:06

A. Steal President Lincoln's dead body.

0:02:060:02:08

B. Blow up the Statue of Liberty.

0:02:080:02:11

C. Make the world's largest pizza.

0:02:110:02:13

Show me your answers now.

0:02:130:02:15

-What's the answer please?

-The answer is A.

0:02:150:02:18

Big Jim Kennally wanted to steal Lincoln's body

0:02:190:02:22

and hold it hostage for 200,000,

0:02:220:02:25

but got busted by the Secret Service.

0:02:250:02:27

Righteous man.

0:02:270:02:29

I think the moral of this story is

0:02:290:02:30

don't try and ransom the dead body of a president.

0:02:300:02:33

Dave, what's a moral?

0:02:330:02:35

If you don't know, I'm not going to tell you.

0:02:350:02:38

Great start, Jasmine and Edward. Excellent work.

0:02:380:02:41

-Edward, it's your turn to pick.

-Can I have Presidents, please?

0:02:410:02:44

Gabriel Green was a presidential candidate between 1960 and 1972.

0:02:440:02:50

But who did he say told him to run for president?

0:02:500:02:53

A. A tree.

0:02:530:02:55

B. His mum.

0:02:550:02:57

C. An alien.

0:02:570:02:58

Show me now. What's the answer, please?

0:02:580:03:01

The answer is C.

0:03:010:03:03

Gabriel Green claimed he decided to run for president

0:03:030:03:07

because an alien told him to.

0:03:070:03:09

Far out. What planet was he on?!

0:03:090:03:12

I mean the president, not the alien.

0:03:120:03:16

Thanks for clearing that up. So no points there.

0:03:160:03:19

-Inaaya, your turn to pick.

-Can I please have Space Travel?

0:03:190:03:22

Unfortunately, that's a question from Rattus Rattus.

0:03:220:03:25

In 1961 the second man into space was American Alan Shepard Junior.

0:03:250:03:32

His launch was delayed for such a long time

0:03:320:03:35

that he had to do what in his space suit?

0:03:350:03:39

A. A poo.

0:03:390:03:41

B. Go for a wee.

0:03:410:03:43

C. Pass wind.

0:03:430:03:46

Let's see your answers, please.

0:03:460:03:48

Let's find out who's right.

0:03:480:03:50

The answer is B.

0:03:500:03:52

His launch was delayed so long

0:03:520:03:55

he had to go for a wee in his space suit.

0:03:550:03:57

At least he didn't pass wind. Imagine that inside the space suit.

0:03:570:04:01

Oh, yeah. Heaven!

0:04:010:04:03

Not quite what I meant.

0:04:030:04:05

But Jasmine and Edward, more points for you there.

0:04:050:04:08

That just leaves us with one topic and it's Dr Seuss.

0:04:080:04:11

When famous children's author Dr Seuss

0:04:110:04:14

suffered from writer's block, would he,

0:04:140:04:16

A. Go into a cupboard full of hats.

0:04:160:04:20

B. Swim in a giant goldfish bowl.

0:04:200:04:22

C. Eat green eggs and ham.

0:04:220:04:25

Let's see those answers now.

0:04:250:04:27

What's the answer?

0:04:270:04:28

The answer is A.

0:04:280:04:30

He would go into a cupboard full of hats,

0:04:300:04:34

try them on and not come out until he could continue to write.

0:04:340:04:38

Dig it, man.

0:04:380:04:40

Excellent work. That's a point apiece for Jasmine and Inaaya

0:04:400:04:43

and that means at the end of the first quiz round,

0:04:430:04:46

Jasmine, you have won the first Year Sphere,

0:04:460:04:48

which means that it's time for me to say,

0:04:480:04:51

All hail the Potty Pyramid.

0:04:510:04:57

And make sure you choose a good one.

0:04:590:05:01

Yes, because AD dates will be added to your total.

0:05:010:05:04

And of course BC dates will be subtracted from it.

0:05:040:05:07

We'll find out what's in that later on.

0:05:070:05:10

Now, winning the Awesome USA quiz means that Jasmine

0:05:100:05:14

is automatically through to play the Awesome USA game.

0:05:140:05:17

But will she be alone or will the others get to play too?

0:05:170:05:20

Let's find out.

0:05:200:05:22

It's a single player game.

0:05:240:05:26

So, Jasmine, off down the Time Sewer on your own please.

0:05:260:05:30

-See you, Dave.

-See you.

0:05:310:05:33

1899 America. The Wild Bunch.

0:05:360:05:39

A deadly gang of robbers are enjoying a boom time.

0:05:390:05:43

Yes, it's time to play...

0:05:430:05:46

Calamity Train.

0:05:460:05:48

First, get the carriage door open to reveal three safes.

0:05:480:05:51

Then connect the right cable

0:05:510:05:53

and find out which one contains the cash,

0:05:530:05:55

with the help of some dynamite.

0:05:550:05:57

Grab as many dollars as you can before the time runs out.

0:05:570:06:00

50,000 gets you a Year Sphere.

0:06:000:06:03

In three, two, one, bang!

0:06:030:06:06

Time then for Jasmine to rob a train.

0:06:060:06:09

First, she needs to unbolt the door to the carriage.

0:06:090:06:11

This is not as easy as it looks, by the way,

0:06:110:06:13

when you're up against the clock.

0:06:130:06:15

Yes, she's doing nicely with it though.

0:06:150:06:17

Almost there and she has done it. She's in.

0:06:170:06:20

Now the tricky business of finding the correct length of fuse

0:06:200:06:22

to connect the detonator to the safe.

0:06:220:06:25

-No. That's not it.

-She'll have to try the others, Rattus.

0:06:280:06:31

Did you know that when they actually robbed the train

0:06:310:06:33

the leader of the gang, Butch Cassidy, wasn't even there.

0:06:330:06:36

-He must have misread the timetable!

-Good one, Rattus!

0:06:360:06:39

Now, is that the correct fuse? No. It isn't.

0:06:390:06:41

But it does mean that this must be the one. Here we go now.

0:06:410:06:45

She's getting it right in there.

0:06:450:06:47

-It's coming back to the plunger, Rattus.

-In the plunger.

-Here we go.

0:06:470:06:51

-Boom! Where's the money?

-Where is the money?

0:06:510:06:54

Well, she's bagged a few rogue dollars there

0:06:540:06:57

but it's not the huge stash of cash that she needs to win the game,

0:06:570:07:00

so she's going to have to try the other safes.

0:07:000:07:03

She is sensibly moving the fuse now. Look at that.

0:07:030:07:06

-Here we go again, Rattus.

-Plunge.

0:07:060:07:09

-Boom!

-Look at that!

0:07:090:07:11

I'm no expert but I think Jasmine has used way too much dynamite.

0:07:110:07:15

Just like the Wild Bunch did in the real robbery.

0:07:150:07:18

And she is having a field day out there.

0:07:180:07:20

She's got loads of cash, look at the cashometer.

0:07:200:07:22

Look at the rattlesnake. He doesn't like being woken up, does he?

0:07:220:07:26

No, sir. No, indeed. She's got plenty of money...

0:07:260:07:29

Hang on, what is she doing here, Rattus?

0:07:290:07:31

She's blown the third safe just for kicks. This is crazy behaviour!

0:07:310:07:36

I've never seen anything like that. She's still gathering cans.

0:07:360:07:40

She's already done it. It's like she's done it before. Maybe she has.

0:07:400:07:44

My favourite part of the game was the big explosion.

0:07:440:07:46

My hobby is robbing trains.

0:07:460:07:49

145,000.

0:07:490:07:52

Not that you need one, but help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:07:520:07:55

Well played, Jasmine. Very well played indeed.

0:07:550:07:58

-Where have you been, Rattus?

-Rat.i.am, please.

-Whatever.

0:07:580:08:02

I've been down the Time Sewer

0:08:020:08:04

putting the finishing touches to my music video.

0:08:040:08:06

You are not a pop star. I mean, a plop star maybe!

0:08:060:08:10

Take a look at this.

0:08:100:08:13

# Do your sewer slide

0:08:140:08:16

# Hey lovely lady

0:08:160:08:19

# Poo, poo, poo, poo, pooey

0:08:190:08:21

# Rodent style

0:08:210:08:23

# Do the sewer slide

0:08:230:08:26

# Poo, poo, poo, poo, pooey

0:08:260:08:29

# Rodent style. #

0:08:290:08:30

So what do you reckon, Dave?

0:08:300:08:32

It really, really stinks.

0:08:330:08:35

Compliments will get you everywhere.

0:08:350:08:38

On to round two

0:08:390:08:41

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

0:08:410:08:43

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:08:460:08:49

And here are your all-important Awful Egyptian topics.

0:08:490:08:52

Cures, Army, Ramesses and Funerals.

0:08:520:08:57

So, Edward, it's your turn to pick first this time. What will you have?

0:08:570:09:01

Can I have funerals?

0:09:010:09:03

True or false, in ancient Egypt

0:09:030:09:05

women could be hired as professional mourners at funerals?

0:09:050:09:09

Is that true or is that false? Let's have a look.

0:09:090:09:12

-What's the answer please?

-It's true.

0:09:120:09:14

If you didn't have enough friends and family,

0:09:140:09:17

you could hire professional mourners to give you a big wailing send-off.

0:09:170:09:21

SHE WAILS

0:09:210:09:22

That will be 20 pieces of silver.

0:09:240:09:27

Give us a fiver, Rattus, and I'll sob when you're scoffed

0:09:270:09:29

by a Doberman.

0:09:290:09:30

I'm joking. I'm joking. It's going to cost you a tenner.

0:09:300:09:34

-No, come here. I'm only kidding.

-Get off me.

-It's all right.

0:09:340:09:38

Oh, no, Doberman!

0:09:380:09:40

Argh! Argh! Where?! Where?!

0:09:400:09:42

For heavens sake, have you just weed yourself?

0:09:440:09:47

Serves you right. Rodent style, yeah.

0:09:470:09:50

That's points there for Edward and Inaaya. All still to play for.

0:09:520:09:57

-Inaaya?

-Can I please have Army?

0:09:570:10:01

True or false, you could join the Egyptian army at nine years old?

0:10:010:10:06

Is that true or is that false? Let's have a look. What's the answer?

0:10:060:10:10

It's false. Joining the Army at the age of nine?

0:10:100:10:13

Please! We were more civilised than that.

0:10:130:10:16

You had to be 10.

0:10:160:10:17

So not far out with nine but just far enough.

0:10:190:10:21

Well done, Jasmine. Your turn now to pick a topic.

0:10:210:10:24

-Could I have Cures please?

-And that is a prop question.

0:10:240:10:28

-Prop question.

-Prop question.

-Prop question.

0:10:280:10:31

A slap on the head with a dead fish

0:10:310:10:33

was an ancient Egyptian cure for a migraine.

0:10:330:10:37

Is that true or is that false?

0:10:370:10:39

I can tell you it is true.

0:10:390:10:42

Congratulations, Edward. You go into the lead.

0:10:420:10:46

-Now then...

-Ouch! You've given me a headache.

0:10:460:10:50

I can make that better.

0:10:500:10:52

Oh, you've cured me.

0:10:520:10:54

That is the most fun I've ever had on this show. Terrific.

0:10:540:10:57

One category left and that category is Ramesses.

0:10:570:11:02

True or false, Ramesses had over 200 wives.

0:11:020:11:07

Is that true or is that false?

0:11:070:11:10

It's true.

0:11:100:11:11

I should know, I'm his wife number 203.

0:11:110:11:15

Which makes me feel so special.

0:11:150:11:17

I'm sure it does.

0:11:170:11:19

Inaaya grabs a point at the end there,

0:11:190:11:22

which means that we are in a tie-breaker situation.

0:11:220:11:25

Beginning with the letter B,

0:11:250:11:27

which organ was removed by sticking a hook...

0:11:270:11:30

-Edward?

-Brain.

-Absolutely right.

0:11:300:11:32

Beginning with the letter B, which organ was removed by sticking

0:11:320:11:35

a hook up the nose in the mummification process.

0:11:350:11:38

It was the brain. Congratulations, Edward.

0:11:380:11:40

Help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:11:400:11:42

There we go. We'll find out what's in there later on.

0:11:450:11:48

OK. Edward's through to play the Egyptian game

0:11:480:11:51

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

0:11:510:11:54

Let's find out.

0:11:540:11:55

It's an All Play game,

0:11:570:11:59

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

0:11:590:12:02

-Adios.

-Adios, Inaaya.

0:12:020:12:04

Time to 'work' like an Egyptian as we play...

0:12:060:12:10

Pyramid Puzzle.

0:12:100:12:12

In 2,500 BC the Great Pyramid was constructed

0:12:120:12:16

out of an amazing 2.3 million limestone blocks.

0:12:160:12:20

But our lucky contestants only have 11 polystyrene ones.

0:12:200:12:23

First to complete their pyramid wins a Year Sphere.

0:12:230:12:27

Three, two, one, build!

0:12:270:12:30

And off they go. So, we've mixed things up here, Rattus.

0:12:300:12:33

They need to find their stones from the pile

0:12:330:12:35

before they can build their pyramids.

0:12:350:12:37

-Ho-ho! And they've released a mummy.

-Ooh, mummy alert! Mummy alert!

0:12:370:12:41

I was not expecting that, and neither were you, Rattus,

0:12:410:12:44

by the look of that puddle on the floor.

0:12:440:12:46

-Oh, no, Dave, that was there before. It's how I like it.

-Of course it is.

0:12:460:12:49

Silly of me to forget that momentarily.

0:12:490:12:51

These mummies really are putting them off.

0:12:510:12:53

Inaaya there, particularly distracted

0:12:530:12:55

-for my money.

-That is their job.

0:12:550:12:58

No, that's true. That is very true. Did you know, Rattus,

0:12:580:13:01

the stones for the actual Pyramids came from 500 miles away?

0:13:010:13:05

Not next-day delivery, I'm guessing.

0:13:050:13:06

Ooh, imagine the cost of the post and the packaging.

0:13:060:13:09

Astronomical, Rattus!

0:13:090:13:11

Now, Jasmine has her first piece in place, but look at Edward.

0:13:110:13:14

He's moved on to his second layer there.

0:13:140:13:17

This is interesting. I think he's taking a slight lead.

0:13:170:13:20

Inaaya looks as if she's in a slight state of disarray,

0:13:200:13:24

as Edward continues his relentless march

0:13:240:13:27

towards construction completion. Builders always say they're going

0:13:270:13:30

-to be finished before they are, don't they?

-And they never turn up

0:13:300:13:32

when they say they're going to turn up, either.

0:13:320:13:34

And they're always going for tea breaks.

0:13:340:13:36

But enough about builders! Never mind about them.

0:13:360:13:39

Look at that. That tessellates perfectly.

0:13:390:13:41

We're liking that.

0:13:410:13:42

Yeah, I have to say, Jasmine is still very much in this.

0:13:420:13:45

Jasmine is in this because that bottom layer is nearly complete.

0:13:450:13:49

Inaaya just slightly off the pace, it has to be said.

0:13:490:13:52

But Edward is nearly there.

0:13:520:13:54

For my money, Rattus, he's doing extremely well now.

0:13:540:13:58

That's really beginning to look like a pyramid, isn't it?

0:13:580:14:00

It certainly is,

0:14:000:14:01

but it's the points and the slopes that make it really tricky.

0:14:010:14:04

Yeah, it is, but all he has to do is deliver the point. This is it.

0:14:040:14:09

This is the end of the game, Rattus. He's done it.

0:14:090:14:11

Edward has built it. He wins. Any thoughts?

0:14:110:14:15

The mummies quite surprised me because...

0:14:150:14:18

-Hello.

-MUMMY GROANS

0:14:180:14:20

..because when they jumped out, you probably wouldn't expect it.

0:14:200:14:24

Terrific effort, everybody. Terrific effort.

0:14:240:14:27

Well played, Edward. Help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:14:270:14:30

Excellent stuff. What's in there? We'll find out later.

0:14:320:14:36

Ooh, Dave, Rodent Style's gone viral.

0:14:360:14:38

Everything goes viral when you're around.

0:14:380:14:41

-Either that or bacterial.

-It's bigger than Despacito.

0:14:410:14:45

People love it! Look around you. Everyone's doing the Sewer Slide.

0:14:450:14:50

DANCE MUSIC PLAYS

0:14:500:14:52

# Do the Sewer Slide

0:14:520:14:55

# Poo, poo, poo, poo-ee!

0:14:550:14:58

# Rodent style! #

0:14:580:14:59

-Can you do the Sewer Slide, Dave?

-DAVE CHUCKLES

0:14:590:15:03

# Do the Sewer Slide

0:15:030:15:06

# Poo, poo, poo, poo-ee!

0:15:060:15:09

# Rodent style. #

0:15:090:15:10

-You could have just said no.

-Yeah, I should perhaps have said no.

0:15:120:15:15

Right, round three.

0:15:150:15:16

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

0:15:160:15:18

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:15:200:15:23

Four questions, as always,

0:15:230:15:25

and here are your four Middle Ages topics...

0:15:250:15:28

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

0:15:340:15:37

-What would you want?

-Can I please have Gold?

0:15:370:15:39

In the Middle Ages, people believed they could make gold

0:15:390:15:42

from mixing which two substances?

0:15:420:15:44

Show me now, please.

0:15:520:15:54

Ooh, a complete spread!

0:15:540:15:55

What's the answer, please?

0:15:550:15:57

The answer is B.

0:15:570:15:58

We believed you could make gold from eggs and horse poo, of course!

0:15:580:16:01

-HE SCOFFS

-Figs and cat wee!

0:16:010:16:03

That would never work!

0:16:030:16:05

It's true. Italian alchemist Bernard of Treviso

0:16:050:16:08

spent eight years hard-boiling chicken eggs,

0:16:080:16:11

mixing them with horse dung and leaving them to rot

0:16:110:16:14

until he had a disgusting-smelling mixture of chicken eggs and poo.

0:16:140:16:17

Which is obviously far better than gold.

0:16:170:16:21

To some folk.

0:16:220:16:23

Congratulations, Edward. A point to you.

0:16:230:16:26

Jasmine, it's your turn to pick.

0:16:260:16:28

Please could I have Knights?

0:16:280:16:30

How long was the training to become a knight?

0:16:300:16:33

Show me now, please.

0:16:390:16:41

What is the answer, please?

0:16:410:16:42

The answer is B.

0:16:420:16:44

-Yes!

-A knight trained for 14 years.

0:16:440:16:47

He was first a pageboy at seven, then a squire at 14,

0:16:470:16:51

then a knight at 21.

0:16:510:16:54

Then a corpse at 28.

0:16:540:16:56

Yeah, most probably that's true, Rattus.

0:16:560:16:58

Well played, Inaaya. A point for you there.

0:16:580:17:00

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

0:17:000:17:02

Can I have Leeches, please?

0:17:020:17:04

-That is a prop question.

-Oh, it's a prop question.

0:17:040:17:06

-BOTH:

-Prop question! Prop question! Prop question!

0:17:060:17:09

Leeches were popular for Middle Ages medicine,

0:17:090:17:12

but how did a leech collector collect them?

0:17:120:17:15

Was it A, with a net, B, by standing in a marsh,

0:17:150:17:18

or C, with a jar of blood?

0:17:180:17:21

Show me your answers, please.

0:17:210:17:23

I can tell you, the answer is...

0:17:230:17:25

-..B.

-Oh!

-Well done, Edward.

0:17:260:17:29

Each collector stood in marshes

0:17:290:17:30

and waited for the little bloodsuckers to bite their legs.

0:17:300:17:33

Well played, Edward.

0:17:330:17:35

Oh, Rattus. Oh, Rattus, please tell me you haven't eaten them.

0:17:350:17:39

HE BURPS

0:17:390:17:41

Excuse me.

0:17:430:17:44

Rodent style.

0:17:440:17:46

Final question in this round is on Anglo-Saxons, and here it comes.

0:17:460:17:51

Which famous manuscript that chronicled the history

0:17:510:17:54

of the Anglo-Saxons was begun in 891?

0:17:540:17:57

The Anglo-Saxon what?

0:17:570:17:59

Show me your answers, please.

0:18:050:18:07

What's the answer, please?

0:18:070:18:08

The answer is A.

0:18:080:18:10

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. It's a great read.

0:18:110:18:15

Or so I'm told. Us peasants can't read.

0:18:150:18:18

Probably best just to look at the pictures.

0:18:180:18:20

Well done, Edward. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:18:200:18:22

Another point for you means that you have secured yourself

0:18:220:18:25

another Year Sphere. Collect away.

0:18:250:18:27

OK, Edward is the winner of the Middle Ages quiz,

0:18:330:18:36

so he goes through to play the Middle Ages game.

0:18:360:18:38

But will he be on his own or will everyone get to join him?

0:18:380:18:41

Let's find out.

0:18:410:18:42

Oh, it's a single-player game.

0:18:460:18:47

-So, Edward, off down the Time Sewer on your own.

-Goodbye!

-Goodbye.

0:18:470:18:52

Imagine a piano, but instead of musical notes,

0:18:550:18:59

each key triggers a different pig squeal.

0:18:590:19:01

Sounds deranged, eh? That's cos it is. Time to play...

0:19:010:19:05

Can you believe King Louis XI

0:19:080:19:10

actually had one of these crazy instruments?

0:19:100:19:12

All you need to do is listen and repeat a sequence of piggy squeals.

0:19:120:19:15

They'll get one longer each time.

0:19:150:19:18

If you can repeat nine squeals, you'll win a Year Sphere.

0:19:180:19:22

Three, two, one... HORN BLARES

0:19:220:19:26

So, here we go with the first piggy sequence.

0:19:260:19:28

PIGS SQUEAL

0:19:280:19:31

Edward? PIGS SQUEAL

0:19:310:19:36

Yes, he's off to a flying start there.

0:19:360:19:38

So now the sequence, Rattus, gets one note longer each time.

0:19:380:19:42

He steps up to play again. I tell you what, you don't see this

0:19:440:19:46

-on Young Musician of the Year, do you?

-Which is a shame.

0:19:460:19:49

It is a shame in many ways.

0:19:490:19:51

Yes, he's safely through that. Six squeaks coming up.

0:19:510:19:54

Six lovely squeaks.

0:19:540:19:57

No pigs are injured in the playing of this piano.

0:19:570:20:00

Just want to make that absolutely clear.

0:20:000:20:02

PIGS SQUEAL

0:20:020:20:04

Ever played any animal instruments, Rattus?

0:20:040:20:06

-Er, the porcupine quill.

-Lovely. Excellent.

0:20:060:20:09

He's done it again. That means we're going to...

0:20:090:20:11

Oh, nasty guff there. Nasty guff from the end pig.

0:20:110:20:14

All designed to put him off, Rattus.

0:20:140:20:16

-Shameful, really.

-But it hasn't put Edward off at all.

0:20:160:20:20

-He's cracking on there.

-Is he going to get through this one?

0:20:200:20:22

Let's have a look.

0:20:220:20:23

PIGS SQUEAL

0:20:230:20:28

Yes, he's done it. I tell you what, he hasn't hit a bum note yet,

0:20:280:20:31

has he? DAVE CHUCKLES

0:20:310:20:32

A bum note, Rattus! RATTUS LAUGHS

0:20:320:20:34

Oh, well done, me. Terrific.

0:20:340:20:36

He's... I like the way he moves his hand, Rattus.

0:20:360:20:39

Do you see that? It's like he's counting,

0:20:390:20:41

almost trying to influence the pigs with his mind rays.

0:20:410:20:45

There's a glorious smell of bacon during this game,

0:20:450:20:47

-isn't there, Dave?

-Oh, there certainly is.

0:20:470:20:49

I mean, that really is the best thing about it, actually.

0:20:490:20:52

He's a virtuoso, this lad. This is the final sequence.

0:20:520:20:55

He's done well up to now,

0:20:550:20:57

but this nine-squealer is very problematic indeed.

0:20:570:21:02

Here we go. He's on the way.

0:21:020:21:04

-Edward is a focused lad.

-He certainly is.

0:21:040:21:07

He's only got about four squeaks left!

0:21:070:21:09

He's going to do it, I think, Rattus!

0:21:100:21:13

-He's there!

-Splendid.

0:21:130:21:15

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE He's avoided being pooed on,

0:21:150:21:17

and that's always good.

0:21:170:21:19

When I was younger, I was at a farm with my childminder,

0:21:190:21:22

and I leaned over the fence to have a look at the pig

0:21:220:21:25

and it pooed on my shoe.

0:21:250:21:27

Well done, Edward. Tremendous memory skills.

0:21:270:21:30

Help yourself. By all means, help yourself.

0:21:300:21:34

There we go. Lovely.

0:21:340:21:36

Still one chance to win a Year Sphere, and this is it.

0:21:360:21:39

It's the final round.

0:21:390:21:40

Over to the Gory Grid to find out what we've got.

0:21:400:21:43

It's the Rotten Romans.

0:21:450:21:47

So, no quiz this round.

0:21:470:21:49

Straight down the Time Sewer with the lot of you.

0:21:490:21:52

-A-bye-bye, Dave!

-A-bye-bye!

0:21:530:21:55

Eugh, it smells like dog poo!

0:21:550:21:58

So, it's time for what I can safely say

0:21:580:22:01

is Rattus's favourite game.

0:22:010:22:03

Whoohoo!

0:22:030:22:05

What's stercus, Rattus?

0:22:080:22:09

-It's Latin for poop, of course.

-Of course it is.

0:22:090:22:12

And your job is to collect the stercus from the cesspit,

0:22:120:22:15

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

0:22:150:22:19

The most proficient stercus farmer gets the Year Sphere.

0:22:190:22:22

-In three...

-Number two.

-Number ones!

0:22:220:22:26

HORN BLARES

0:22:260:22:28

So, our farmers leap into action,

0:22:280:22:30

everyone furiously gathering their first sack of stercus.

0:22:300:22:33

Oh, those poo troughs remind me -

0:22:330:22:35

it's been ages since I've been swimming.

0:22:350:22:37

Oh, that's horrible, Rattus.

0:22:370:22:39

Well, everyone's dropping a load of stercus here.

0:22:390:22:42

Oh, what have those Romans been eating, I wonder.

0:22:420:22:45

-Quite literally everything, Dave.

-Yeah.

0:22:450:22:47

You have to say, Rattus, these three are going really, really fast.

0:22:470:22:50

It's very impressive so far.

0:22:500:22:52

And I'm always surprised at how enthused they are

0:22:520:22:54

-to get their hands in the poop.

-Yeah, well, you know,

0:22:540:22:57

I would have thought you'd have understood that, Rattus.

0:22:570:23:00

You of all people. Inaaya's got a slight edge here, I think.

0:23:000:23:03

She's well underway here, isn't she?

0:23:030:23:06

But Edward and Jasmine are hot on her heels.

0:23:060:23:08

There's no doubt about it, this is going to be tight.

0:23:080:23:11

-Nice leap there from Edward.

-Yeah, very much so.

0:23:110:23:13

What do you think of those buckets, Rattus?

0:23:130:23:16

Well, they're not necessarily the best way to carry poop around.

0:23:160:23:19

One of the best ways to carry poop is actually on your fur.

0:23:190:23:23

Yeah, keep your distance, please, fella. Keep your distance.

0:23:230:23:26

Look at this. It's going very well

0:23:260:23:28

for all. I'm impressed. CLOCK CHIMES

0:23:280:23:30

-Now, that means there's 30 seconds left.

-Ooh!

-Oh!

0:23:300:23:33

Ho-ho-ho! Jasmine's down.

0:23:330:23:35

There is now stercus

0:23:350:23:37

everywhere, and you have to wonder whether Jasmine

0:23:370:23:40

will make it down that lane again.

0:23:400:23:42

But Inaaya - look at this!

0:23:420:23:43

Well, she's defying the slip.

0:23:430:23:45

She's skirted the stercus.

0:23:450:23:47

She's skirted the stercus

0:23:470:23:48

and she's managed to get another delivery and...

0:23:480:23:51

-Edward's down!

-Oh, he's all over the shop!

0:23:510:23:53

I think Inaaya could be onto something good here

0:23:530:23:56

because while the others flounder in the dirt,

0:23:560:23:59

she is farming the stercus.

0:23:590:24:01

ALARM BLARES And there's the final one.

0:24:010:24:03

-It's all over.

-She's done it.

0:24:030:24:04

Inaaya's farmed her way to first place,

0:24:040:24:07

and doesn't she look pleased about it?

0:24:070:24:09

The poo dropped on the left side,

0:24:090:24:11

and I went across to the right side, so I managed to skip the poo.

0:24:110:24:15

Skip the poo - words to live by.

0:24:150:24:18

Ah, well done, everyone. Welcome back.

0:24:180:24:21

Help yourself to a Year Sphere, Inaaya. Congratulations.

0:24:210:24:25

Excellent work.

0:24:250:24:27

Now, it is time to count up those Year Spheres.

0:24:270:24:30

And, remember, AD dates are added to your total,

0:24:300:24:33

and BC dates are subtracted from it. Here we go. Jasmine, let's

0:24:330:24:38

open up that first one, please.

0:24:380:24:40

1553 AD.

0:24:410:24:45

Roman Catholicism was restored in England

0:24:450:24:47

by Queen Mary I that year.

0:24:470:24:49

This could be crucial,

0:24:490:24:50

particularly for Inaaya.

0:24:500:24:51

Let's have a look at that second one.

0:24:510:24:53

Oh, it's a BC, Inaaya!

0:24:530:24:56

So, that keeps you in the game.

0:24:560:24:57

It's 509 BC.

0:24:570:25:00

Tarquinius Superbus, the last king of Rome,

0:25:000:25:03

was run out of the city that year.

0:25:030:25:06

Extraordinary. So, you're in the positive. That's good.

0:25:060:25:08

But you're not clear. Edward, let's have a look

0:25:080:25:11

at your first one.

0:25:110:25:13

Oh, my word!

0:25:140:25:17

170,000 BC!

0:25:170:25:21

All that hard work -

0:25:210:25:23

it's disappeared.

0:25:230:25:25

Humans first started wearing clothes round about then.

0:25:250:25:29

I mean, thank goodness they did, but it's cold consolation.

0:25:290:25:32

Let's have a look at that second Sphere.

0:25:320:25:34

That is 1596 AD.

0:25:350:25:38

Pocahontas was born that year.

0:25:380:25:40

Let's have a look at the third one there.

0:25:400:25:42

1542. You're on a roll now.

0:25:420:25:45

1542 AD. Mary, Queen of Scots

0:25:450:25:47

was born that year.

0:25:470:25:49

And what about that final one?

0:25:490:25:51

Well, again, another good one. 1613 AD.

0:25:520:25:55

The thatch roof at Shakespeare's

0:25:550:25:57

Globe Theatre caught fire that year.

0:25:570:26:01

Now then, Inaaya,

0:26:010:26:03

you suddenly find yourself very close to winning this.

0:26:030:26:06

You have to beat Jasmine's score of 1,044.

Let's have a look

0:26:090:26:11

what's inside there.

0:26:110:26:12

-It's 1509 AD.

-Yes!

0:26:130:26:16

Henry VIII ascended

0:26:160:26:18

to the English throne

0:26:180:26:20

that year.

0:26:200:26:22

And that means that, with that 1509 -

0:26:220:26:25

-1,509 points - Inaaya, you are today's champion.

-Yeah!

0:26:250:26:31

She's well pleased. RATTUS LAUGHS

0:26:310:26:34

She's made-up. That's excellent. What a comeback.

0:26:340:26:38

So, come on, Rat.i.am,

0:26:380:26:39

what terrible prize have you dredged up for us this week?

0:26:390:26:42

Oh, no, Dave. This week, I'm handing over something

0:26:420:26:45

which is truly special, which I was given

0:26:450:26:48

for the amazing number of downloads of my single, Rodent Style.

0:26:480:26:52

-Actually, that does sound pretty good.

-It's a brown disc.

0:26:520:26:55

-A BROWN disc? Shouldn't that be a gold disc?

-No.

0:26:550:26:59

It's a cowpat, isn't it?

0:27:000:27:02

-Yes.

-Yep.

0:27:020:27:04

-Heaven's sake! Here you go, Inaaya.

-Thank you.

0:27:040:27:07

That'll look good on the wall, I suppose.

0:27:070:27:08

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Maybe look even better in a field

0:27:080:27:10

full of cows, however.

0:27:100:27:12

-Ew!

-And as for our runners-up, well, it's time for them to...
