Jumpeth on board, friends, for thou art invited upon a magical
journey through the wonders of last week's CBBC.
It's Whoops I Missed The Bus,
and you don't want to miss any of it, doth thou?
Crank up your speakers for a bit of this.
# Because there's nothing more that I can say... #
Yay, vlogger Tee Cee's back!
Pink? Green? Oh, the pressure, it's just too much!
And can anyone explain this?
What does it say?! Is it a toy?
Ooh, play with me! Words on the screen?
AS DAVID ATTENBOROUGH: And now, if we listen very carefully,
we may be lucky enough to see the rare CBBC lesser-spotted vlogger.
There's two of them now! It's Laura and Myles.
Oh, am I on? Oh, I'm on.
OK. You want a vlog? You-You can have a vlog.
After I've finished the tea.
There's nothing in it.
Pay attention, CBBC fanatics, for the time has come.
She's here, she's ready
and she's got more CBBC gossip than anyone I know. It's our Laura.
To be or not to be, that is the question.
The question might be "What am I talking about?"
If you've been watching what I've been watching,
you might have a clue. Get ready to become epic at Shakespeare!
I bet you didn't know rapping could have anything to do with the Bard.
RAPS: ..ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean...
I can do this! I can Shakespeare. Let's hit it.
First I need to pick a verse and give it a beat.
I know what's missing here.
OK, maybe I'll work on that later. In the meantime,
Maxine gives us some useful acting tips.
The first way I'm going to do it is accusing. Is it challenging?
"Seems," madam? Nay, it IS.
I know not "seems"!
Or I could just explain to Gertrude my situation.
Nay, it is.
I know not "seems". Ah. Nicer.
As Maxine points out, there's lots of ways
to say the lines that Shakespeare wrote.
The way you say something can completely change the meaning,
just like in real life.
I'm really happy about that.
I'm really happy about that(!)
ANGRY: I'm really happy about that!
Too much? Maybe just a bit.
And there's an exciting countdown in the show? What could it be?
A countdown of quotes or characters or even the best romances?
Welcome to Ye Olde Charte,
counting down the top 10 Shakespearean deaths.
Deaths?! A countdown of deaths?
Royal sons Chiron and Demetrius are killed, drained of blood,
minced up and put in a meat pie.
I'm definitely not jealous of Shakespeare's characters.
Did he just say "meat pie"?
If you've wondered what Shakespeare would have sounded like, here's Ben.
Oh, for a Muse of fire that would ascend
The brightest heaven of invention...
Oh, for a Muse of fire, I be vlogging for thou.
I think I've got the hang of this! Now just to dress the part.
You could wear a more traditional costume or perhaps something
a little later, or, really,
anything you have in your wardrobe.
Pause. Is that a hoodie I see there?
Yes, it is! That's what I'm wearing!
Wow, I really know how to master this Shakespeare practice.
Now just to learn my lines.
When I actually work out what my lines are.
Right, I might have lost them.
And by "might", I mean, I definitely have.
Beatboxing will distract everyone, right? Yes?
Laura, old pal, I've got one word for that.
Also, apparently, I can't count.
Moving on, I think it's high time we heard from you.
I love The Dumping Ground. The Dumping Ground. Why?
Because it's really emotive,
it has too much drama, plus it picks you up and puts you in a happy mood.
Well done! My favourite TV show on CBBC is "Operation Ouch!",
because you learn lots of facts about the human body,
and Chris and Xan are very, VERY funny.
Also, I love Whoops I Missed The Bus, because I love vlogging.
Yes! I love watching The Dumping Ground, because it's so awesome.
I never, ever want to stop watching it.
My favourite character is Tee, and I never, ever, EVER miss an episode.
I also like Lauren, Katie, Kravim and Hacker and Dodge,
because they're great. I even drew this picture.
My favourite show on CBBC is The Next Step, because I love to
dance, and Lost Found Music Studio, because I love to sing.
I sing everywhere I go, sing whilst I'm going to school,
sing in the bath, sing in the shower.
And in the toilet.
I love you, CBBC! Bye!
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE You guys really are top banana.
If you want to get in on the act, just record a 15-second clip of
yourself telling us all about your top CBBC show
and send it in via the Whoops web page.
Now, have you "Found" our brand-new CBBC series,
or are you "Lost" on what I'm getting at?
Did you see what I was doing there with the...?
Ah, forget it. Just feast your eyes on this.
So, to get my part on the show, I got a call from my agent to
go down for an audition, and I actually auditioned four times
before I actually got the part.
Why would I waste my time getting to know you?
Stumped me there, Sarah.
I went in for two or three callbacks for a bunch
of different cast mates, and it was a really fun experience.
Well, we'll see who's got a better voice, then. No, no. No.
It's-It's all right. Are we scared?
We did improv scenes and singing, and that was fun.
# So give it up, up All of your love, love
# And don't run, run away...
# If it's no, no Then let me go, go
# Because there's nothing more that I can say
# Because you set me on fire... #
'My first one was Fire.
'I think that was, like, one of the best days of my life.'
I really showed myself, showed them what I can be and what I can do.
I brought up a keyboard, and it was a huge workout.
# When you're up so high you never want to fall... #
I was walking up the stairs and I was like,
"Mom, I don't think I can do this, it's too heavy!"
And it was all for a bigger purpose, so I'm so glad I did it.
I went in there and I did my thing, and I got a callback!
I would say I'm probably a mix between a baritone and a tenor.
My range is a bit off-er now because I'm going through voice changes!
'After that audition, I thought I blew it.'
But, y'know, I didn't, I got the callback,
and I'm here right now, so it ended up working out really well.
Clara's audition is very similar to my audition,
because I was very nervous for my audition.
Are you a little nervous? I'm not a morning person.
I'm nervous, too. Yeah.
'And I think that the auditioners could sense that.'
They gave me words of encouragement, and then I wasn't as nervous.
It was so much better and I felt so much more comfortable,
and I had a lot more fun.
And I think that the same thing happens to Clara halfway
through her audition, when Isaac gets up and starts clapping for her
and she just realises that it's fun, its not nerve-racking
and she should relax and just perform.
Sensational Shakespeare is a Horrible Histories special
all about William Shakespeare, the famous writer who has
the surname that sounds like a dangerous dance move.
"I'm Shakespeare." "I'd prefer it if you didn't, mate.
"Not around here. Don't be waving that about.
"You'll have someone's eye out with all that business, Will."
# I am Shakespeare
# I'm working hard on my writing
# I've got sound investments
# And I'm not into fighting. # What?!
The rapping part was not in the history books.
"Open your textbooks to page 100."
"Miss, William Shakespeare's rapping to me."
"Yes, that...that is accurate."
Sensational Shakespeare delivers the history of the past
but in a modern, interesting way.
There's rapping, there's news reports, tablets, all that,
all the touch, scroll... All technology.
Hey, history lovers.
Coming at you is loads of brills and loads of thrills.
It's the top three most epic things ever in Elizabethan entertainment.
At three, The Taming Of The Shrew by William Shakespeare.
The boy from the sticks has come out of nowhere
and is taking the London theatre scene by storm.
I do wonder what Shakespeare would say if he saw that.
Yeah, we have TVs and tablets and laptops, so we can just place
our fingers onto keys and stories can rush out really quickly.
And Shakespeare would probably be like, "Wow, that's amazing.
"You know, does everyone just write stories, then?"
"Well, no, because there's also this thing called
"the internet on there, which sort of stops that writing process.
"Do you know about cat videos?"
"No, I'm from the past, we didn't have cats."
That is probably why Shakespeare could write so many plays -
there was nothing else going on. No distractions.
He's writing, there's nothing out the window -
just a horse walking by. Nothing else for him to be doing
so he might as well write Romeo And Juliet.
But again, unlike modern times, he stopped after the first one,
Romeo And Juliet.
He didn't keep going until Romeo And Juliet Five -
Chaos Initiative, and everyone is a robot
and they split the final movie into two parts for some reason.
William Shakespeare also probably never... I'm doing history now.
I've just put myself in charge of history.
He probably made up so many words
because there's no spell-check on paper.
If he didn't know how to spell something,
save the embarrassment, pluck out a word
and no-one can tell you you're wrong because you just made it up.
Oh, I'm Shakespeare. "Oh, the sky looks...mm...
"Are you trying to say the sky looks miserable?"
But I do have one idea for why he was always writing, though...
There were no loos in Elizabethan theatres and, worse still,
no loos in a lot of the houses, so people just chucked their poo
and wee out of the window every morning.
If you just stay indoors, keep your head down, there's no chance of...
"It's starting to rain - better head inside."
"That's not rain, Will."
Hands down one of the best CBBC shows ever.
Now, before we even get into this week's episode,
can we just applaud the fantastic introduction into the show?
No, seriously, look at how it starts!
# Every day when you're walking down the street
# Everybody that you meet
# Has an original point of view. #
The confidence in your stride, it's actually beautiful.
You own that pavement, boy!
One thing that I love about this show is that there's always
a dilemma to be solved. You can't help but feel involved.
So, Arthur wins a pair of tickets to his favourite concert, right?
But he can only choose one out of eight friends to take with him.
That's a lot of pressure. I mean, what would you do?
So, who are you going to take?
Look here, I have trouble selecting what socks to wear in the morning,
never mind having to choose between my best mates.
Yellow? Pink? Green?
Oh, the pressure, it's just too much!
And just when you thought things couldn't get any more
difficult for Arthur, this happens.
Mom, please can we not answer the phone for a while?
Not the phone, not the phone!
I know you're probably taking Buster,
but I just want to say I was the first one in school
to like Static Airways.
You remember that day in kindergarten
when I played their first single for show and tell?
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Sometimes in situations like this you have to go back to basics.
And clearly, there's only one simple solution here.
I can't believe it takes a four-year-old girl
to suggest picking straws.
Why didn't I think of that?
And there you have it - problem solved. Boom!
Cheers, Tee Cee. That was enough to make me want to burst into song!
But I won't, because you're going to need your ears to hear
what our furry companions think about CBBC.
It's time for...
I love CBBC, I love the telly. So technicolour.
Ella, Ella, I can't read. What does that say? What does it say?!
Is it a toy? Oh, play with me! Words on the screen?
I do, I love All Over The Place. It's so funny.
OK, I'm bored now. Bye.
Ah, Sam and Mark hiding in someone's house again.
Wait, are they in my house?
Lara, check behind the couch for two stray comedy presenters,
# Whoa-ho-ho ho-ho
# I'm a hamster
# I am so tiny
# But I am mighty
# I'm a hamster
# Ah! #
I could totally be a presenter on that couch.
Ahem, in today's news, I chased a mouse,
I chased my tail and I also slept for 26 hours.
Oh, and Nikki was late with my biscuits, hint, hint.
Does your budgie like Blue Peter?
Does your fish like Four O'Clock Club? Does your zebra like...?
No, hang on, we don't have any shows beginning with Z...yet.
Never mind, just send us a clip of your pet watching CBBC
and we'll give them a voice. What you thinking, pet?
Now, tear your eyes away from your phone or tablet
for the next 90 seconds,
because we've got all the best bits from the last week.
Ready? Put that tablet down, Aisha. I can see you, you know.
Pointy bits sting for wasp.
Resident drones stand by.
Begin popping in three, two, one...
Air Marshal has his hands full keeping order here.
And look at this! Flame-thrower!
He zapped two straight away.
Every single time she dances, it's amazing.
But this time is different.
She's killing it.
Dancing is such an incredible feeling.
It's like you're on cloud nine.
When I'm doing my solo, it feels like I'm meant to be on that team.
Every phrase in the rest of the song was invented by The Bard.
# Let me break the ice Don't catch a cold
# Don't give me short shrift in this brave new world
# It's a foregone conclusion come what may
# Cos every dog will have its day
# So don't send us packing It's a witching time
# There's no rhyme, no reason There's a reason it rhymes
# There's a method to me madness Give the devil his due
# And listen to the song To thine own self be true. #
Correct. The next is...
Correct, 2-2. What's it going to be?
If I get this right you get a pie.
Erm, ah, Shakespeare!
It is, yes!
Charlotte's in for this pie!
Three, two, one, go!
Oh, thanks, Charlotte. Did you enjoy that?
That's your lot until next time.
But before I go, to be late or not to be late...for the bus?
That is the question. Yeah, missed it again.
Mum is not going to be happy. I'm going to be grounded.
Driver, returneth to me!
