Hello and welcome to The One Show with Matt Baker.


For a little while longer. It is starting to feel real now. It is


exciting, but later, I have arranged for someone to give you help and


advice in what is to come over the next few weeks. This is Sarah-Jayne.


She shared her Labour win over a quarter of a million strangers.


Brave. She did this online. She is there to answer any queries you


might have. I have a long list of questions. How long have we got? We


have a lot of excitement here because the guests have promised to


arrive in style. They are coming in pairs. We are


looking for the Hairy Bikers, of course. Hang on a minute. Where are


Si and David? Nice to see you. Are you well?


Lovely to see you. Have we ditched the bikes? No. This is just a


transgression. Is it because you are doing comfort food and you are


trying to keep the calories of? I don't know. We will talk all about


the series in a little bit. It has not necessarily been a happy New


Year for those using the railways this week.


Fares have gone up by an average 2.3% and passengers have been hit,


Dom has been to see if concerns over driver only trains stack up.


You probably don't travel on Southern but spare a thought for


those who do. They have faced repeated strikes, staff shortages


and cancellations. The bill for lost fares and compensation is ?38


million and it is affecting their well-being, mental health and


ability to make a living. I resigned on Friday. Every day I have had


delays. I have not got home for my son. I have been crying on the train


because I have had to say good night to him on the train. What is the


dispute about? The company running the franchise wants to convert


guards into on-board supervisors, which means responsibility for


opening and closing doors moves to train drivers and if the supervisor


is not available, the train can still run. The unions say it is not


safe. There is a need for a guard on the train, to ensure you do not rely


on one person to look after passengers on trains that are more


and more overcrowded. But if you travel on other parts of the


network, you will know that is exactly what happens. 30% of the


network is driver only including this train travelling to London


Liverpool Street. You are on a train without a guard, did you know that?


Does it worry you? Yes. Because I feel they should have won in case


someone is ill, somebody with children. You need someone in charge


of who is coming and going. The driver? The driver, yes. It would be


nice if you saw a guard walking up and down, particularly, I think, of


an evening. Do you know if it has wanted a? I have no idea. Do you


feel less safe if I tell you there is no God? It does not matter. The


rail safety and standards board said the Southern proposals are safe.


They have been used since 1982. They are used all the time in London


underground and on international networks. Is it all about safety? I


spoke to the board and they seem not to think so. It is and the Railway


safety and standards board is paid for by the employers. They produced


a report that says how you can get rid of the guard off each train


which for a safety board, called independent, is pretty worrying. An


independent expert says the RMT safety fears are valid. The concern


now art nouveau using one person may be a 12 coach train with platforms


that are crowded. The drivers said the camera provided are not


necessarily good enough to spot that. The guards said there is


nothing as good as a pair of eyes. If the RMT is objecting to driver


only on Southern when it has accepted it elsewhere, some ask if


there is a political reason for the strikes. The union will lose its


ability when drivers are controlling the doors. The great newspaper The


Times did spread the other week where they talked about the left


trying to bring the government down and it had the shop stewards network


and the RMT, left wing organisations, coordinating to bring


the government down. Shock horror, we bloody well. Is it about safety


or politics? Solly about safety first and last. 100%? 110%. If you


spit on your own they wipe it away but if we split together we can


drown them. It is politics, surely. Your president is singing a


different him. It is fantasy to say our members on Southern are part of


a left-wing political conspiracy to take on the government. They are


ordinary working people. I tell you what our members say, ordinary


working people seeking to keep a guard on the train because they


believe it is not safe. The members vote me in every five years and the


executive. You have the wrong president because if members say it


is about safety and they vote the strikes, and your president says no,


and it is about bringing the government down, your president...


This is a dispute led by ordinary working people seeking to defend the


role of the guard and ensure trains are safe. This is what the dispute


is about first and last and will continue to be about. As you said in


the film, 30% of trains are driver only and the unions seem to have


signed off on them and there is a reason they are now disputing?


Southern are not laying anybody. There are no pay cuts. They said


they will use driver only when circumstances dictate. The drivers


union stated they never supported driver only trains but agreements in


place, they could not argue the point. They say trains are not safe.


Today, the Office of Road and Rail said following inspection of the


trains they are satisfied suitable equipment, competent procedures, it


is a safe method of working. On the flip unions emphasise the warnings


like equipment and procedures in place. It is all arguing still.


There are more strikes planned but measures being put in place to ease


the pressure? There are strikes coming up but at the moment the


Confederation of passenger transport say they will lay on 200 coaches


paid for by Southern. Priority will be given to key workers like nurses,


police, firefighters, TV presenters! National Express will put on a


service on certain lines like Brighton to London. Coaches versus


rail. Exactly. Nothing more depressing when they say get off and


get on the bus. Even more depressing for commuters, it may spread across


the country. It is not looking good. Merseyrail said they plan to bring


in driver-only operated trains. Also London Midland, South West Trains,


also reporting they might. The RMT says if that happens you might be


looking at more strikes. Not good news. Thanks.


Now, it's the time of year when lifeboat crews across the country


In just the last 48 hours, 16 lifeboats have been launched,


with strong winds and rough seas to contend with.


Recently, it was the 50th anniversary of one of the RNLI's


most dramatic rescues, and we've been given


exclusive access to the brave volunteers who were involved.


50 years ago this winter, RNLI cruising Wales were called out to


one of the most treacherous and daring rescues to date. A Greek


freighter Nafsiporos was sailing between Liverpool and Belfast when


storms hit and her engines failed. The ship and crew were stranded. It


was very nasty. Things are getting drastic. The Holyhead lifeboat was


the first on the scene. It was blowing an absolute hurricane. It


was out to 100 mile per hour storm. I had no clue what would happen. I


was the new kid on the block but I learned quick. Unbelievable. It was


like climbing mountains. Up one and down the other. You could not drive


through them. The second officer was on board the Greek freighter. The


vessel, because of the rolling, the chain. Visibility was reduced,


making it a struggle to locate the ship. The waves were pushing us. The


strong winds, to the rocks. The rocks look like knives. Big knives.


Time was running out. When we got to the casualty, when we got alongside,


I knew straightaway what to do, it is instinctive. You had to get these


guys. The lifeboat from the Nafsiporos was detached and hanging


off the ship, making the rescue more dangerous. The lifeboat is quite a


big thing. You went back and forth. The rowers came through the cabin.


Most of the people... The Greek sailors, that is their


life. We had to drag them off. The crew managed to get five of the


Greek sailors aboard before having to pull away because of damage to


their boat. Another Anglesey crew had arrived and were able to


continue the rescue. Both lifeboats returned to Holyhead together. You


don't think of the danger. You get on with the job. If you are going to


go, you are going to go. It is quick. I was never frightened. Our


job was to go there, get the crew off the ship and bring them ashore,


which is what we did. In a mission lasting 24 hours, the volunteer


lifeboat men managed to rescue 15 Greek sailors. And, thankfully,


despite appalling conditions, no lives were lost. All the lifeboat


men were honoured with medals at the time for their bravery and to mark


the occasion 50 years later, the RNLI are resenting the surviving


crew men with special commemorative awards. Although unable to travel


here today, the second officer from the Greek vessel has sent a message


to express his gratitude. We achieved something, to save those


lives. Because of us he is a grandfather and a happy one. It is a


nice thought. Not many people say that. There has never been a thank


you. We take it for granted. It is a job. We do not do it to be


recognised. We do it because we are members of the RNLI. I am proud of


my career and would do it tomorrow if I had the chance. Thank you,


thank you. Dave, we were talking about the RNLI and the fact you had


a place of Roa Island. It is half a mile off Barrow in Furness. I lived


there are about ten years. Just up from the lifeboat station and a lot


of my mates were lifeboat men. Especially Chunky. We have a


picture. That is not in his lifeboat man garb. He is going to kill us! He


was great. I would go for a cup of tea and we would ask advice. We


would set out for the Isle of Man but because of the prevailing wind


would turn up in Whitehaven! To be fair, you ended up in Fleetwood


once. That was thanks to Chunky. It is like ballooning, you're sailing.


Abstract expressionist sailing. We were supposed to be in the Isle of


Man because we were filming. We were supposed to take the catamaran from


Roa Island and we had a crew and it started to get rough and it was


awful. He popped his head up above the cockpit and said Will you get me


off this flaming thing? We went, shall we go to Fleetwood, Dave? We


called the lifeboat man and said what do you reckon? He said you daft


beggars, get into Fleetwood. We have the crew on the Isle of Man and hat


to phone them from a chip shop in Fleetwood.


You have got a programme all about comfort food. It is the perfect time


of year for it in January. Who doesn't like a bit of comfort food?


It is all about nostalgic food, isn't it? What did you grow up on?


We have pictures of you as little boys here, which are very sweet.


That is you, Dave. That is me, my dad and my mum at Christmas. Very


posh around yours! What were you eating? That is me on my dad's


scooter. We had a sugar basin which fit a tin of salmon, butter, brown


bread. If you make the tin last a second day, my dad would mash it up


with a boiled egg and make spread. Look at this picture! That's me dad


standing there really proud! That was in... Which one is you! I got


two types of nits. One of the monkey and one off the flaming parrot!


That's the first time on a motorbike. That is my dad's Phantom.


I would hold the handle bars when he was up the back street, coming back


from work. You like mince and mash. Anything with gravy and mash. You


two have... We have dirty, guilty secrets! I don't know about everyone


watching... In the series we cook beautiful food. The best we have


ever cooked. We have gone back in the minds of our mind and I came up


with this one, it is Marmite and marmalade. So, you see it is sweet


and sour. I like both separately. But never together! It works. Some


we made earlier. As pregnant woman, who knows. It may be the best thing


ever! Yes! It's good! I love it! That is


delicious. Then it goes a bit quirky! What do you mean? This is


good student food. It is meaty sweet! What about the cheese and


biscuits then? A bit of a guilty food pleasure, this. I mean I've


gone a bit posh because I'm not just squeezing it into my mouth now and


eating pineapple chunk, I have it on a biscuit. Now according to the


Dicktry... Can you do healthy eating with comfort food? You fluctuate,


you go as dieters one minute and then comfort food the next. We are


normal people. One of the most comforting things I love is a roast


chicken dinner. I have to cut down on the spuds. That is because you


have to. One of the... One of the stuff that my mum used to do, it was


flat rib broth. It is healthy. There's no fat in it.


Full of goodness as well. Quickly, mean you've got chefs and people


from all over the world involved as well. So who do you think does the


best comfort food? Is it us? Yes. It is. And it's great because we the


multi-cultural nature of our society has brought all that together.


Comfort food, there is so much and so many. We hope so, because we're


going to do a new series! Put in the Marmite and the


marmalade. You can see it every weekday afternoon. It is pub grub


tomorrow. Yes. Very nice. We are sticking now with nostalgic dishes


because the latest instalment of Ricky's A to Z of British food is up


next. We are up to F. We have not gone far! See what you think!


I'm on a journey across the country to discover Britain's best regional


food. And I'm using your suggestions to


guide me. We map the A to Z of brilliant British food.


You sent me loads of suggestions for F. Stuart Evans wasn't the only one


to suggest to me to head north. Loads of you suggested fish and


chips. I headed to Harrogate to try a fats aal. Dozens of -- dozens of


you tempted me with faggots. They were popular in South Wales, during


rationing after the Second World War. I have come to a food market to


meet fifth generation butcher, Chris, known for his faggots: Come


on in. Our faggots are made to a traditional Welsh family recipe. My


grandmothers, and it is all fresh ingredients. What is in it? Onions,


belly pork. My secret ingredients, fresh liver and some dry bread. Have


you ever changed the faggots to make them more modern? We have changed


them in the past, but we always keep on coming back to this simple


recipe. It is fool-proof. Years ago it was a waste product. It was all


the waste from the pig. The only waste on a pig is its squeal.


Once the ingredients have been mixed, Chris rolls them into balls


and pops them into the oven. While our faggots cook away, I will speak


to the people of Carmarthen and see what they think about one of the key


ingredients - ofal. Awfully good or bad? Awful!


Awful! It is terrible! It is wonderful. You


like it? Especially faggots. Faggots It is bad. I am a child of the war.


You made use of any bits. Do you think we should make more use of it?


The animal is dead, why waste it. After a while the faggots are there


for me to taste. Oh, really good. They are moist. They are like a


meatball. It is fat-free, just about. We could modernise the way


they look maybe a little bit, maybe we would get people to fall in love


with ofal again. Let's do it. All they need is a makeover. I am going


to dress them up, using the best Carmarthen market has to offer. I


have been around the market, got my ingredients, now time to jazz up my


faggots. For my new-look faggots I need salad, caramelised onions, some


bacon, the mixture, of course and a slice of blue cheese, before serving


in a brioche bun. Now for a taste test. What will the people of


Carmarthen think of my modern, boutique faggots. Would you like to


try one? No, thanks. What do you mean, no! Ladies, come on? I could


eat and eat it. It is really nice. I am on a diet. Tell them that!


Yeah. Would you be prepared to try one for me? No. OK. This character


here would. I am not feeding these to the dogs! How could you say, no!


? Maybe if nobody tries them. And I have some left! Chris, we have heard


what everyone else thinks. You are the man who matters. Tell me what


you think of the job I have done with them?


To die for! I think a lot of chefs around this


area will catch on to this now. They will be copycats. It is good, isn't


it? Exceptionally good. Chris, will you do me an honour of sticking


these faggots on my map of A to Z of food. That is F ticked off. Where


will J take me on my A to Z tour? That sticker they stuck on South


Wales was not particularly attractive!


LAUGHTER I mean! I am so glad you say that,


Alex! I mean, I apologise to everybody watching from the area.


You are fans of faggots, aren't they? You? You could do the hairy


faggots! There's a certain following we've


got, you know! So many programme ideas! It is incredible. Ricky is


still on the hunt. You will lose it again, like last night, if you are


not careful. It is your last show, isn't it? The last show tonight.


As many of you will know, I am off on Fridays because I do Countryfile.


This is really our last show together before... We will obviously


see each other. Yes. Will you be at the birth, Matt, or not? I don't


know. I will see what I'm doing. With all of this in mind we have


found somebody to give you a little bit of last-minute advice. I


mentioned her at the top of the programme, but this lady, two weeks


ago gave birth in front of 250,000 people. You are joking! Sorry it was


her labour. The labour! I have juice arrived at the


maternity wing. The contractions are coming every


five minutes or so. Definitely ... I am in the hospital being monitored


at the moment. Can somebody else do this? I don't want to do this bit!


It will all be worth it! Hi. It's SJ and baby!


Sarah-Jayne joins us live now from Richmond. We have time for a couple


of questions. Sarah, Jayne, massive congratulations. The baby is


gorgeous. On a scale of one to ten, how much did you want to jump out of


the window? Definitely a nine-and-a-half. I did


it all on gas and air. It is fine! What kind of reaction did you get


and how far afield were people watching you from? Well it was


shared on the channel Facebook page, which is an on-line village for


mums. Positive from them. As it got wider I think more and more, that we


were so shocked so many people watched it. People who thought we


shared the actual birth live thought it was crazy. It was just the pre


early labour and the birth announcement. Very positive. What


did your husband say about all of this? Was he OK with it?


Yeah. He was very happy and supportive. The whole family watched


from Sweden and in the UK. He was just, we didn't want to share the


birth. Even he was not too keen on watching that bit of it. Yeah, he


was very supportive. Listen, all the best with everything. Thank you for


joining us live here. I know you want your birth to be as private as


it can be, but apparently the radio times and BBC One have got together


and I mean this is quite extraordinary... To be honest with


you... This is birth live on BBC! And we have commissioned these now,


Call The Midwife now! And planet birth, and I'm I'm a celebrity get


me out of here. That is all we have time for now.


Serious comfort food every weekend afternoon.


Paddy Kielty's with me tomorrow, and we'll be joined


we've run at almost completely 100% capacity.


We've got lots of patients now competing. There's no beds.
