Hello and welcome to
The One Show, with Matt Baker.
And Alex Jones.
With awards season in full swing,
tonight, we are excited to be
launching our own awards.
Recognising and celebrating
all of those staff who go
the extra mile in the NHS.
We'll have all the details on how
you can take part in a moment.

Last week, during the extreme
weather, we once again saw just how
far NHS staff are prepared to go
to give patients the care they need,
working extra hours and,
in many cases, walking to work
through the snow and ice.
Now, in the year the NHS turns 70,
we're giving you the chance
to say 'thank you'.
We know that in local hospitals,
surgeries and in every corner
of the NHS, there are people who go
beyond the call of duty -
not only saving lives,
but transforming them
with their care and compassion.
So tonight, on your behalf,
we are launching The One Show
NHS Patients' Awards.
Angela is going to be explaining how
you can take part in a moment.
First, she's been to Chester,
to find out what a difference
a 'thank you' can make.
Every 24 hours, more than 1 million
people are seen by some part of the
NHS. From routine checkups, to
critical surgery, it is a system
that we all rely on.
But it is the 1.5 million NHS staff
and hundreds of thousands of
volunteers who day after day provide
the vital backbone to the
organisation. And often leave us
with a lasting impression.
That is why we want to give you the
opportunity to say thank you.
I would like to thank Marie O'Brien
who was my midwife throughout my
pregnancy with ribbon.
I really like Becky, Nikki and Fay,
who are nurses here, because they
have looked after me well and made
sure I was not in too much pain.
I was completely broken, they put me
back together again.
The nurses and doctors are very nice
because they give me toast.
She came and did not say a word, she
put her arms around me and is knew
she totally understood the place I

I think that is what professionals
in health care live for, it gives
them the feeling that they doing the
right thing. It gives them

those memories are very important.

Thank you to everybody for
what you did last week. But this
goes way beyond last week. It is
time to find out now how you can

It is a coincidence we are launching
those awards. But it is high time
these angels are recognised.

situation a couple of years ago when
a very close family member of mine
had to go to hospital in London and
we stayed there for a couple of

you now have this award and thank
you so much over there! And your

very young and I see what people put
Listening to this, those three
wonderful women, it they all made
the headlines and so many others
like them this weekend. At what we
forget very often, what they
represent is the ethos, the attitude
that everybody working in the NHS
has, to not just a job but their
vocation. And as members of the
public, it was lovely to see on the
notice boards in the hospital, and
they must be replicated all over the
country, those cards saying thank
you. But this is our opportunity on
the The One Show with these awards
with the entire nation to say to NHS
staff, thank you, because you do
that kind of thing and you have that
attitude. Right the way through the
year, three and 65 days a week.

through each one.
categories, the important thing
about each of them, this is an
opportunity for people to say thank
you for something very special. It
may be a triple heart bypass, the
paediatric ward that saved your
baby, and orderly, a nurse, a
volunteer who sat with somebody at
their bedside at a very important
emotional time in somebody's life.
These are the things we want to hear
about, the stories which really,
really touched people and made a
difference in your life. As a
patient. Because someone in the NHS

we will be inundated with fabulous
things. And young people themselves
who want to say thank you. Well,
they can, but say it through their
parents. I will tell you about the
voting later. Healthcare Award is
the broadest award and this is a
category in which patients and
families can award doctors,
consultants, a anaesthetist, a GP,
anybody working in the area and
chests who does something above and
beyond which touches you and makes a
difference to your life. The Nursing
Award, what it says, nurses,
district nurses, midwives, all of
them have done something absolutely
outstanding to really make a
difference to your life and
impressed upon you just really what
it means to be in the care of the
NHS where people are prepared to do
It is not just patients and families
that can nominate people for this,
but also colleagues within the NHS.
The NHS is full of people who have
given a lifetime of service. They
may be medical or non-medical, but
they have gone the extra mile. They
have been there through thick and
thin. They may have retired, but a
lifetime achievement award is for
people who think that these are
special individuals who get
something to the NHS and to the
patients. Our final award is the
hero award. You saw my friend
Geoffrey on the Thomas the Tank
Engine train. He is indicative of
thousands of people who work in the
NHS. They are the porters, the
cooks, the orderlies, the cleaners,
people on reception, the volunteers.
They all support the medical staff
as well as the patients. It is an
opportunity for the public to say
thank you to them.
How do people
nominate? This is important, because
it is the story and impact it has
had on a person and their family.
Very much so. It is very easy, just
go to The one website and click on
The One Show NHS patients award logo
and up will come all the terms and
conditions, which I am not going to
go through because there are so
many. But right at the bottom, there
is a box you take and that will
bring up the page on which you can
make your nomination. Just tell us
the name of the person, and why you
want that person nominated. You
don't need to go into intricate
medical details. We want to know the
story, the emotion, the moment that
said to you, that person is special
and I want to nominate them because
they might be the winner. It will be
easy for some people still say, I
want to nominate the entire cancer
ward. We want the individual. If you
can't run under an individual's
name, go back to the hospital and
ask -- if you can't remember an
individual. Just ask, who was that
nurse or doctor or orderly? If you
are under 18 and you want to
nominate someone, you must do it
with your parent. The other thing is
that if you want to nominate on
behalf of a patient, it is important
that you get that patient's
permission to make that nomination.
All the details are online. We are
going to be inundated. We will have
a big awards ceremony night.

Now, from action scenes in the snow
to action on the big screen,
Tomb Raider has been rebooted
for a new generation -
so let's see Lara Croft,
doing what she does best.
Do you really want to do this,
little girl? Let's just go home.
That looks incredible. We saw it
this afternoon, Alicia, and we were
shattered just watching you in
action. You never stop moving.

you see yourself doing stuff like
that, does it take your breath away
that that is you?
Well, it reminds
me that I trained a lot to be able
to do the physical stuff that Lara
does in this film. Maybe I ought to
go back to the gym.
But this is a
role that you have wanted to play
since you were a little isn't to be
honest, that was like another
I used to play a lot of
games. And I loved adventure movies
like Indiana Jones and the mummy
films growing up. So when I had the
call asking me if I want to be part
of a film like this, and when they
said it was a rebooted version on
that felt like it was something new.
But it is so full on and I am sure
there are not many more roles that
are more forlorn than this.
hope we are moving into times where
we will be surprised firstly at
female characters in these films,
which is definitely a big change.
You did a lot of your own stunts as
That was one of my favourite
things about being part of a film
like this. I have always been
curious about the detailed work out
how you put together these stunts
and action. I used to dance before I
started to act, so due to that, the
physical aspect really intrigued me.
We were watching you and I thought,
I have never seen arms like that on
a girl before.

I actually looked to a lot
of female athletes. I also met a lot
of stunned women in the industry
over the past few years. I was not
able to do a poll up or live my own
weight, and that is part of who Lara
is, the fact that she climbs all
these walls and jumps.
It is like

but give us the rough story of this.
It starts in the UK?
It does. She is
a very British character, as we
know. I played the games as a child,
but I wasn't aware of the rebooted
games that this film is based on. At
the beginning of the film, we need
her not at her manner, but she has
decided her dad has disappeared the
seven years and she's trying to come
to terms with what happened to him,
but also not take the easy path and
follow his steps. She wants to
figure out her own footing in the
world like young people do. And she
wants to fight for her own destiny.
That is when she's kicked off on

that you were this brilliant men

island without enough women. I was
running around, looking for them.

brilliant the film is. I can't wait

home country of Sweden is one of the
best places to see the aurora

UK as well. The question is, how do
those incredible colours light up
the dark sky? I am sure you know.

see them myself. I went to the ice

You may not know it, but we are

deadly particles racing towards
Earth at over 1 million mph. This
onslaught comes hurtling towards us
straight from our own star, the Sun.
This all sounds pretty apocalyptic,
but why can't we feel this solar
wind and how do we survive such
lethal force? Luckily for us, Earth
has an invisible force field that
deflects most of the dangerous
particles. This shield is called the
magneto sphere. It's the area around
Earth controlled by the planet's
magnetic field. And whilst it
shelters us, it also creates one of
the most impressive phenomenon
Earth, the Northern Lights. I have
come to the university of Leicester
to witness how this collision in
space results in such a spectacular
natural wonder down here on Earth.
This is a planet Roller. It
compresses 93 million miles into
about 20 centimetres. The large ball
on this site represents the sun and
the smaller one is the Earth. In
fact, there is a strong magnet that
gives us the earth's magnetic field.
We then put a large voltage between
the two and that gives us a solar
wind. If you get the Earth, you can
see, at the Poles, there is a
purplish glow. In my miniature solar
system here, I have recreated the
northern and southern lights, the
Aurora. When the deadly solar winds
reach other's magnetosphere, some of
the charged particles get trapped
and are propelled down the other's
magnetic field lines straight
towards the Poles. And when they
reach Earth, they strike atoms and
molecules in our atmosphere,
releasing energy in the form of
light. And all this takes place over
100 miles above our heads. To see
the Aurora simulated in the lab is
fascinating, but nothing can beat
the real thing. This cameraman lives
in Caithness, right at the northern
tip of Scotland, the best place in
the UK to see the Northern Lights.
And we have set him the mission to
film the spectacle. By using a long
exposure and a sensitive camera, he
can capture them in all their
majesty. The colour of the Aurora
depends on which gas in the
atmosphere is being hit by the
energy funnelled down from space.
Oxygen produces an array of yellows,
greens and reds, whilst nitrogen
gives off blues, purples and ribald
edges. This awe-inspiring light show
is a reminder that we are connected
electrically to the sun. And the
beauty has inspired artists, writers
and poets. A few lines from the
ballad of the Northern Lights by
poet Robert William service gives us
an idea of that drama and splendour.
"And The skies of night were alive
with light, with a throbbing,
thrilling flame. Amber and Rose and
violent, Opel and gold it came.
Therein or, we crouched and sold
with our wild, uplifted eyes, charge
and retire, the hosts of fire in the
battlefield of the skies".
So now you have seen it from a TV
studio, Alicia. That is almost it
for tonight. A big thank you to
Alicia. Tomb Raider is in cinemas
from the 15th of March. Tomorrow,
Cuba Gooding Jr will be here. Before
we go, we have been talking about
our One Show NHS Patients Awards and
going the extra mile. Someone who
not only went the extra mile but
broke records doing it is Sir Roger
Bannister, who passed away at the
weekend. We will leave you with Sir
Roger, narrating his own world
first, with words from people he
inspired along the way.
