We've got nibbles and everything.

0:00:400:00:42

Oh, look at that! Mouldy cheese, rotten cabbage, cocktail worms.

0:00:430:00:48

Ooh-hoo-hoo, scrummy.

0:00:480:00:50

Coming up, we've got some of my favourite Horrible History Savage Songs.

0:00:500:00:54

So let's get things started in the Ancient Greek city of...

0:00:540:00:57

Sparta.

0:00:570:01:00

Hey, all you helots, you zealots, you Peloponnesians, you Lacedaemonians,

0:01:010:01:06

all of Leonidas' army, let's get barmy for the Spartan school musical.

0:01:060:01:11

-ALL:

-Gooo, Sparta!

0:01:110:01:13

-Whoa!

-Whoa! Come on!

0:01:130:01:15

Come on!

0:01:200:01:21

# Today I'm starting high school Where boys are turned to men

0:01:260:01:29

# I've packed my sword and shield We don't use paper and pen

0:01:290:01:32

-# Everyone's a jock here

-We don't have fun, nerds

0:01:320:01:35

# But weedy kids were left to die As breakfast for the birds

0:01:350:01:38

# We're taught to love a fight we're taught not to be meek

0:01:380:01:41

# And if we're good they feed us three square meals every week

0:01:410:01:44

# Let's go fighting Fighting is exciting

0:01:440:01:46

# Rocking at the Spartan school... #

0:01:460:01:49

Come on!

0:01:490:01:51

Whoa!

0:01:510:01:52

# At Spartan Kindergarten I'm the boss that's understood

0:01:530:01:56

# I smack 'em if they're naughty And I thwack 'em if they're good

0:01:560:01:59

# I'm feeling rather peckish I'm gonna steal some food

0:01:590:02:03

# Caught, I'll have to punish you Ungrateful Spartan brood

0:02:030:02:05

# We promise not to steal We're not the thieving sort

0:02:050:02:08

# Stealing is considered good What's wrong is getting caught

0:02:080:02:11

# Let's get beating And learn lots of cheating

0:02:110:02:13

# Rolling at the Spartan school

0:02:130:02:16

# We have a bunch of contests To see who is the best

0:02:180:02:21

The meanest, leanest, toughest, roughest, Spartan contest

0:02:210:02:25

# This one is my favourite game Lashings of good fun

0:02:250:02:27

-# Didn't feel a thing

-I want my mum

0:02:270:02:30

# We pass our last exam And it's Spartan graduation

0:02:300:02:33

# Straightaway we go to work No time for celebration

0:02:330:02:36

# Ten years active service in the army, no diversion

0:02:360:02:39

# There's only job for a Spartan - Killing loads of Persians!

0:02:390:02:41

# Wondering about love?

0:02:410:02:43

# It's banned until you're 30

0:02:430:02:45

# High school doesn't teach romance It teaches fighting dirty

0:02:450:02:48

# Let's go fighting Now fighting is exciting

0:02:480:02:50

# Rocking at the Spartan school

0:02:500:02:52

# Let's get beating And learn lots of cheating

0:02:520:02:55

# Rolling at the Spartan school! #

0:02:550:02:58

Ooh, uh, sorry if you didn't get any nibbles.

0:03:000:03:02

They seem to have all disappeared.

0:03:020:03:04

I don't know where they could have gone.

0:03:040:03:07

-HE BELCHES

-Yes, the Spartans were indeed fearsome warriors,

0:03:070:03:10

and so were the Celts.

0:03:100:03:12

# Gonna cause a stink Won't be the first to blink

0:03:160:03:20

# I'm not who you think Don't mess with me, I'm Boudica

0:03:200:03:23

# My husband Prasutagus died He was a Celtic King

0:03:270:03:31

# I was his Queen, so due to me Was half of everything

0:03:310:03:34

# Roman law gave half to me So half was what they got

0:03:340:03:37

# Till their nasty soldiers came And took the blessed lot

0:03:370:03:42

# Hey, mister! I say you got The wrong end of the stick

0:03:420:03:45

# His answer turned his sister into one angry chick

0:03:450:03:49

# No man, Roman,

0:03:490:03:51

# Don't push around this woman, You won't get far with Boudica

0:03:510:03:56

# Bowman, yeoman, Smash the Roman foe, man,

# All say "yah"

0:04:000:04:01

-# Yah!

0:04:010:04:03

# I've built a massive army Headed straight for the city

0:04:070:04:11

# Beat 'em all with ease And likely it wasn't pretty

0:04:110:04:14

# Chopped 'em and hacked But what made their red blood curl

0:04:140:04:18

# It's bad enough being beaten But beaten by a girl!

0:04:180:04:22

0:04:440:04:47

# They trapped us in the forest Then thrashed us to our defeat

0:04:470:04:51

# By now you've guessed I'm not The kind of gal who sit and cry

0:04:510:04:55

# Be sold as a slave to Romans? You know I'd rather die

0:04:550:04:58

0:08:050:08:09

It's true, the Vikings did used to drink out of the skulls of their enemies,

0:08:090:08:13

but they weren't the only ones to do it.

0:08:130:08:15

So did some people called Incas, over in South America,

0:08:150:08:19

in around 1450 AD, when this bloke was in charge.

0:08:190:08:24

# I'm Pachakuti, the Incan Lord All other tribes dread it

0:08:300:08:35

# My name means he who shapes The earth, not that I'm big-headed

0:08:350:08:41

# When it comes to claiming nearby Lands, I was the type to risk it

0:08:410:08:48

# But it's how I treat dead enemies That really took the biscuit

0:08:480:08:55

# Do the Pachakuti

0:08:560:08:58

# Do the Pachakuti

0:08:590:09:01

# Do the Pachakuti

0:09:030:09:04

# Pachakuti!

0:09:060:09:07

# Once on a hillside, my troops hid To cause a rifle strife,

0:09:130:09:19

# And when they jumped out it looked Like the ground had come to life... #

0:09:190:09:25

Boo!

0:09:250:09:26

# The rocks they are my warriors I then used to boast

0:09:260:09:31

# And that little lie helped us with wars, but violence helped the most

0:09:310:09:38

# Do the Pachakuti

0:09:400:09:41

# Do the Pachakuti

0:09:430:09:45

# Do the Pachakuti

0:09:460:09:48

# Pachakuti! #

0:09:490:09:51

# If you were a rival chief We'd kill you first and then

0:09:510:09:56

# We'd stuff you like a scarecrow But one for scaring men

0:09:560:10:03

# Then we'd rest your bony fingers on The stretched skin of your belly

0:10:030:10:08

# And in the breeze They'd tap that tum like a drummer

0:10:090:10:13

# But more smelly

0:10:130:10:14

# Do the Pachakuti

0:10:170:10:19

# Do the Pachakuti

0:10:200:10:21

# Do the Pachakuti

0:10:230:10:24

# Pachakuti! #

0:10:270:10:30

Do the Pachakuti.

0:10:300:10:32

I love a good party, me.

0:10:320:10:34

Eh, and no-one loved a good party more than the Stuart king

0:10:340:10:37

who came to power in 1661.

0:10:370:10:40

# My name is, my name is, my name is...

0:10:400:10:44

# Charles II

0:10:440:10:45

# I love the people And the people love me

0:10:450:10:47

# So much that they restored The English monarchy

0:10:470:10:50

# I'm part Scottish, French, Italian, a little bit Dane,

0:10:500:10:53

# But 100% party animal - champagne?

0:10:530:10:56

# Spaniels, I adored Named after me, too

0:10:560:10:58

# Like me they were fun With a nutty hairdo

0:10:580:11:01

# Is today my birthday? I can't recall, let's have a party anyway

0:11:010:11:04

# Because I love a masked ball

0:11:040:11:06

# All hail

# The king of bling, let's sing, Bells ring, ding, ding

0:11:070:11:14

# I'm the King who Brought back partying

0:11:140:11:16

# King Charles, my daddy, lost His throne and kings were banned

0:11:160:11:19

# They chopped off his head, then Ollie Cromwell ruled the land

0:11:190:11:22

# Old Ollie wasn't jolly

0:11:220:11:23

# He was glum and he was proud We'd be miserable as sin

0:11:230:11:26

# Only sinning's not allowed

0:11:260:11:27

# When Ollie died, the people said, "Charlie me hearty, get rid of His dull laws, come back -

0:11:270:11:31

# "We'd rather party"

0:11:310:11:32

# This action's what they called The monarchy restoration

0:11:320:11:35

# Which naturally was followed By a huge celebration

0:11:350:11:37

# The King of England said, "No sin to sing"

0:11:370:11:42

-# OK!

-Or anything

0:11:420:11:44

# All say I'm the king Who brought back partying

0:11:440:11:48

# Great London Fire was a whopper in My reign, London City came a cropper

0:11:480:11:51

# So this King did What was right and proper, for The fire proved a more than a bovver

0:11:510:11:56

# I'm a firestopper

0:11:560:11:57

# Married Catherine Braganza She was a love so true

0:11:580:12:01

0:12:030:12:06

# You think that's bad, But her name's not as silly as...

0:12:060:12:09

# Hortense Mancini

0:12:090:12:11

# As king, I must admit I broke the wedding rules

0:12:110:12:14

# But who cares when I brought back The crown jewels?

0:12:140:12:16

# I reinstated Christmas, Make-up, sport and even plays

0:12:160:12:19

# I was the merry monarch, They were good old days

0:12:190:12:22

# When said and done, King Charles Did run England for fun

0:12:220:12:27

0:12:270:12:32

Party anyone?

0:12:320:12:35

Aah. I was parched.

0:12:370:12:38

Anyone else fancy a drink? Mmm.

0:12:380:12:40

It's squash. Squashed beetle squash.

0:12:400:12:42

Now, here's another famous man from the end of the Stuart era.

0:12:420:12:46

But he's one you really wouldn't want to meet.

0:12:460:12:49

# When I was a nipper,

0:12:550:12:57

# I boarded a clipper, sailed The Seas as a goods importer, ooh.

0:12:570:13:01

# Edward Teach is my name But I earnt my fame as Blackbeard,

0:13:010:13:05

# The Pirate of the Water

0:13:050:13:07

# Oh, what a jolly chap With a jaunty cap

0:13:070:13:10

# Always gave my crew good quarter

0:13:100:13:13

# Oh! But I'm best known for Blood and guts and gore

0:13:130:13:15

# And a vicious reign of murdering And slaughter, oh!

0:13:150:13:19

# Best known for blood And guts and gore

0:13:190:13:21

# And a vicious reign of Murdering and slaughter, oh!

0:13:210:13:25

# Left my home in Bristol With a sword and pistol

0:13:250:13:28

# Bid a fond farewell To old Blighty, oh!

0:13:280:13:31

# What my enemies feared Was my thick black beard

0:13:310:13:34

# Which I always enjoyed Setting light to

0:13:340:13:36

# Oh, once I had a thing

0:13:360:13:38

# For a captive's lovely ring, that Shone like a jewel in the nighty

0:13:380:13:42

# Oh! When the man said no I just said, "oh",

0:13:420:13:45

# And chopped off his hand And said, "righty-oh"

0:13:450:13:48

# Man said no, he said oh, chopped Off his hand and said, "righty-oh"

0:13:480:13:54

# Oh, I love to sail the ocean with My flag that inspired emotion

0:13:570:14:02

# With its smiling pile Of skull and bones

0:14:020:14:06

# Smashing hearts with A violent stabbing motion

0:14:060:14:09

# And I loved to escape detection And to win my crew's affection

0:14:090:14:14

# Which was nothing to do with The 12 guns he wore on his belt

0:14:140:14:19

# That were for protection

0:14:190:14:21

# I was awfully nice # But I had the odd vice

0:14:210:14:24

# Which occasionally caused A commotion

0:14:240:14:27

# The thing that I do Was shoot members of my crew

0:14:270:14:30

# If they didn't Show enough devotion

0:14:300:14:33

# The thing he'd do Was shoot members of the crew

0:14:330:14:36

# If they didn't show Enough devotion

0:14:360:14:39

# Once when very irate I shot my first mate

0:14:390:14:42

# Israel Hands, for a bit of pleasure Oh!

0:14:420:14:45

# And when my debts grew Killed half of my crew

0:14:450:14:48

# To increase my share Of the treasure, oh!

0:14:480:14:50

# Was doing well Then seemed to run out of men

0:14:500:14:53

# My captors boarded At their leisure, oh!

0:14:530:14:57

# Smote me dead Then cut off my head

0:14:570:14:59

# And displayed it on my mast For good measure, oh!

0:14:590:15:02

# Smote him dead

0:15:020:15:04

# Chopped off his head, displayed it On the mast for good measure

0:15:040:15:08

# Oh! #

0:15:080:15:09

Blackbeard really was a bad-tempered sort.

0:15:120:15:15

But then so was our last Georgian king, about a century later.

0:15:150:15:18

I don't think he liked waiting nearly 60 years to take the throne.

0:15:180:15:23

# I'm George IV, the Regent King Which means I was just standing in

0:15:280:15:34

# Acting King because my dad George III, had gone barking mad... #

0:15:340:15:40

Banana!

0:15:400:15:41

# Great palaces I did design Buckingham was one of mine

0:15:410:15:47

# Art and fashion I so rated... #

0:15:470:15:50

-And wives?

-# That's more complicated

0:15:500:15:54

# Actresses and Duchesses The great loves of my life

0:15:540:16:00

# I loved more girls than I ate pies But I couldn't stand my wife

0:16:000:16:06

# He couldn't stand his wife... #

0:16:060:16:08

Go away!

0:16:080:16:10

# I only married Queen Caroline When my debts began to climb

0:16:100:16:16

# Cos if I agreed to tie the knot

0:16:160:16:19

# I said I'd pay off the lot

0:16:190:16:23

# But the wedding caused All sorts of strife

0:16:230:16:26

# Cos I already had a wife... #

0:16:260:16:29

A divorced Catholic?

0:16:290:16:30

# Dad did sigh, but the mad old goat Just wouldn't die... #

0:16:300:16:35

Still here! Oop, spoke too soon.

0:16:350:16:38

# At last I can go solo

0:16:380:16:39

# As true King my reign began, Though I was now older than your nan

# But as the ruler of our nation I banned my wife from my coronation

0:16:450:16:51

# And knowing now That I did hate her

0:16:510:16:53

# She promptly died Just three weeks later

0:16:530:16:57

# But all those pies That I got through

0:16:570:16:59

# Meant ten years later I died too... #

0:16:590:17:03

Hello. Have we met? I'm a kangaroo.

0:17:030:17:07

# Actresses, Duchesses, The great loves of my life

0:17:070:17:12

# I loved more girls than I ate pies

0:17:120:17:15

# But I couldn't stand my wife

0:17:150:17:18

# I had just ten years on the throne, do you remember that?

0:17:180:17:23

# No, all that you remember is...

0:17:230:17:28

# ..I was really fat. #

0:17:300:17:33

Yee-haa! We're having ourselves a fancy dress part-ay.

0:17:380:17:43

In 1866, cowboys ruled the range in America.

0:17:430:17:47

But the real cowboys weren't much like the ones you see in the movies.

0:17:470:17:50

Oh, no.

0:17:500:17:52

# Well, I'm a real life cowboy Just a quiet humble fella... #

0:17:560:18:00

That's what we're like, apart from Mike...

0:18:000:18:02

Yeah, I'm more of a yeller.

0:18:020:18:04

# Sing songs to pass the evenings

0:18:040:18:07

# And because it soothes the herd so they won't stampede... #

0:18:070:18:09

-Unless Mike sings lead.

-I shouts every single word!

0:18:090:18:13

-Mike!

-Sorry.

0:18:130:18:15

# Cos we're cowboys Real-life cowboys

0:18:150:18:20

# Not like the ones You've seen on your TV

0:18:200:18:24

# We've never held up banks At all... #

0:18:240:18:26

-We're poorly paid.

-And kinda small.

0:18:260:18:28

# If you still wanna be a cowboy

0:18:280:18:30

# Stick with me

0:18:300:18:32

-# On your horse for 18 hours... #

-And that saddle sore is a curse.

0:18:360:18:39

-Then feed your horse.

-And yourself, of course.

0:18:390:18:41

-Although beans just make it worse.

-HE FARTS

0:18:410:18:44

# Then you're back driving cattle

0:18:440:18:45

# That's what being a cowboy means

0:18:450:18:46

# Moving those beasts From west to east... #

0:18:460:18:49

-HE FARTS

-Sorry, it's the beans!

0:18:490:18:51

# Cos we're cowboys

0:18:520:18:54

# Real-life cowboys

0:18:540:18:57

# Not like the ones You've seen in the movies

0:18:570:19:00

# We're not big hunks like that John Wayne, cos our horses would complain

0:19:000:19:05

# If you still wanna be a cowboy

0:19:050:19:07

# Join us please

0:19:070:19:09

# You should be aware we have some customs that are strange

0:19:110:19:15

# Like saying howdy, not hello, When you're out here on the range

0:19:150:19:19

# Never touch a cowboy's hat

0:19:190:19:22

# Never ride his horse... #

0:19:220:19:24

So what if I took your old mare?

0:19:240:19:26

-Well, I'd shoot you, of course.

-Fair enough.

0:19:260:19:28

# Cowboys, real life cowboys

0:19:280:19:32

# Not like the ones You see on silver screens

0:19:320:19:36

# We didn't go out Starting fights... #

0:19:360:19:38

Cos unions fought for our rights. Now Mike will do a solo, thanks to beans.

0:19:380:19:45

HE FARTS A TUNE

0:19:450:19:50

-How was that?

-It stunk!

0:19:500:19:52

# And now my friends, I fear That the end is drawing near

0:19:540:19:57

# Cos we only ruled the range For 20 years

0:19:570:20:01

Yee-haa!

0:20:020:20:04

That's right, the cowboy era only lasted for about 20 years.

0:20:040:20:07

But over in Britain,

0:20:070:20:09

many of the things the Victorians invented are still with us today.

0:20:090:20:13

'Twas the age of Queen Victoria's, a period notorious,

0:20:150:20:20

so many brand-new goods we did create.

0:20:200:20:23

Our list is long and glorious, though I don't intend to bore yous,

0:20:250:20:28

-was a time of great invention.

-Was it really? What did we invent, then?

0:20:280:20:34

Well, I'm just about to mention - drum roll, please, let's raise the tension.

0:20:340:20:38

HE CLEARS THROAT We invented...

0:20:380:20:42

this music hall.

0:20:420:20:44

-Is that all?

-Well...

0:20:440:20:47

# A chap called Henry Bessemer

0:20:480:20:50

# Invented molten steel, which led to other chaps creating the automobile,

0:20:500:20:55

# Which led to petrol, tyres and bikes, so all that was required

0:20:550:20:59

-# Was roads, so concrete came, and tarmac thought up too... #

-You're hired.

0:20:590:21:03

# Oh, concrete, tarmac, steel... #

0:21:030:21:07

The automobile.

0:21:070:21:09

Seal of rubber wheel.

0:21:090:21:10

Such inventive zeal.

0:21:100:21:12

# Still there's plenty to reveal

0:21:120:21:16

# Victorian brains worked overtime To come up with ideas... #

0:21:160:21:19

-We invented light bulbs.

-Nice one.

-Cheers.

0:21:190:21:23

# Typewriters and radios, Now news was fast conveyed. Hello.

0:21:230:21:27

# A telephone was no good till A second phone was made. Hello.

0:21:270:21:31

-# Our inventors did not snooze... #

-Always had another ruse.

0:21:310:21:36

The latest flushing loos.

0:21:360:21:38

Films that did amuse.

0:21:380:21:40

# Flashbulb cameras to use... #

0:21:400:21:44

What a picture. What a picture.

0:21:440:21:46

# Vacuum cleaners, toilet paper, Post boxes and stamps... #

0:21:480:21:51

Toilets, Aspirin, anaesthetics, locks, electric lamps.

0:21:510:21:55

Sewing machines, X-rays, comics, ice cream in a pot.

0:21:550:21:58

Easter eggs and rockets.

0:21:580:22:00

We invented the whole lot.

0:22:000:22:02

# Oh... #

0:22:020:22:04

Oh, hang on. There's more.

0:22:040:22:06

# Trains and lines and bridges And the Underground as well... #

0:22:060:22:10

Paddle steamers, prams and disinfectant for their smell.

0:22:100:22:13

Sterile doctor's instruments, one last unmentioned brand,

0:22:130:22:17

Victorians invented the world's first conveyer band.

0:22:170:22:20

Cuddly toy?

0:22:200:22:22

Invented 1902, the year after Victoria died.

0:22:220:22:26

# Oh, barometers were new

0:22:260:22:29

# Iron ships so cool... #

0:22:290:22:31

-What genius.

-Thank you.

0:22:310:22:33

Seems we're almost through.

0:22:330:22:35

# Just one little oversight...

0:22:350:22:38

..we invented dynamite.

0:22:440:22:47

Talking of dynamite, let's finish the show

0:22:480:22:52
