Hello and welcome to Day 2 of One Show's Big Causeway


CHEERING It is absolutely beautiful. We got


in the car and we have been on some road trip, I tell you. California


eat your heart out. This is the very edge of Northern Ireland. Beautiful


colours on the left-hand side. Some of the best scenery we have seen. If


you want to book a holiday for next summer, this is it. We drove to this


gorgeous village in the heart of the nine Glens in Antrim. Today we are


in Cushendall. We have the organisers of a


wonderful festival. We are in The Heart of the Glens Festival. Thank


you for having us. It is a fantastic village you have got going on here.


The festival runs over eight days and it is very much rooted in the


community, Kieran? Very much so. This is one of the best community


festivals in the country. People are very proud of who they are. The


festival is a celebration of who we are. One of the lovely things about


the festival as it brings people together. Especially people from


this area throughout the world, they always come home to festivals. We


have never seen a festival so full. And you also squeeze some lorries


here. Indeed, 100 lorries and they raise money for the Macmillan


charity. We had a community parade which was every organisation here in


the community, a big colour, big noise, fantastic. We have great


children's events. Last night we had our sports events. What did you do?


I just watched! They are people, people, people and we will put them


to use right now. We have some fantastic guests on the show and we


will let the people of Cushendall introduce you. They are banned from


Dublin. The lead singer is called Danny. Bay have had five records.


They have a song called Superheroes! # You've been working every day and


night, superhuman... It is Danny from The Script, Mark


from The Script and Glenn from The Script! Welcome! You have never been


here before? We had never been here before and when we got the


invitation we said we had to come. We came across the Glens and it was


incredible. The most scenic drive you can get in the UK. Have you


tasted any of the food? There are some brilliant food stalls. Have.


And I had a jam sandwich. The bread was so delicious. It is soda bread.


It is called the Glens food Festival and Glenn is our drummer! You said


it is a fairy tale? Yes, looking at the mountains and the cheap, it is


like a fairy tale. You would never know this village was here. It is so


colourful and beautiful. It is like a massive rainbow.


CHEERING Actually, Danny, just down there is


a great butchers. It is called Fleshers and it is owned by this


colourful chap called Zippy. There he is. I tell you what, I have some


news for Zippy because apparently the sausage has lost its sizzle. So


Ricky went to test the UK's best sausages.


Banners frying in a pan is music to a cup's years. In fact, it is a


sizzling symphony. But according to one expert, it is a culinary


overture we are hearing less and less salt. It could be the secret to


how the diet. Tell me about this research. Sausages, the sizzle is


dying out. Why is this? If you go into the shops today, and you look


on the back of the packet, it will tell you the amount of meat in it.


They tend to be 70%, 80 or 90% meat. In the past, meat was very hard to


come by so they would have been 40 or 50% meat and the rest would have


been sellers and loads of moisture. So today our sausages have less


moisture in so they are less loud when you put them in the pan. So you


are saying the modern sausage, what we have done to it by making it


healthier has taken the sizzle out of it? That is right. Today we have


less of the bank and the moisture but it is healthier for us. -- less


of the bang. The loudest sausage is called the Kentish. It has a high


water content and it was from 1945. We have recreated it. That is 78


decibel or thereabouts. That is about as loud as a washing machine


and even louder than a vacuum cleaner? How loud is a backing


cleaner? About 60. The news that the sausage is losing its sizzle may not


go down well in Northern Ireland because they have always promoted


their bangers with proud. How do shoppers feel about getting less


bang for their buck and have they noticed? They do not bang any more.


They are probably healthier now. You are always conscious about what is


healthier. It is nice to hear that noise. They taste lovely. You want


the bang in your bank! Definitely, yes! I want to know where the


quietest sausages come from so the One Show was conducting an


experiment in an appropriate location. Welcome to a place called


Silent Valley in the heart of County Down. It is so-called because it is


incredibly quiet. The perfect place to fry up some sausages to see which


one will be crowned the quietest sausage in Britain. As you can see I


have some stoves, pans and sausages from all over the UK. It is time to


find out how much sizzle the sausages have got. In contention is


the pork and Apple, pork and leak and a sausage from Scotland. And one


of Northern Ireland's sausage supremos James Cunningham. James,


people tell me you are the man to see about sausages? We were


established in 1919 by my great grandfather so we hope we know about


sausages. You have an award winning sausage? Guest, this is our pork


sausage. We will find out Britain's quietest sausage. James and I are


busy on the pounds. Doctor Stewart takes the decibel readings and plots


the results. The results are written. In third place it is the


West country's pork and Apple. Second place is the Scottish one and


in third place, take it away Doctor Stewart. The quietest one and this


is not a fix at all, is one of your sausages, the pork, Chile and tomato


sausage. It is 69.7 decibel and that is because there is not a lot of


moisture in there. It is a lean sausage. Excellent, thank you very


much. A pleasure. You get to eat them now!


Well, we have got the winning sausage here and the man who created


it James Cunningham. Congratulations. But you have got


another accolade as well? We are currently the UK butchers shop of


the year. We were honoured to bring this very prestigious award back to


home in Northern Ireland. Would you like to try some award-winning


sausages? Absolutely. We thought because it is the quietest sausage


we would get the loudest person in our audience to taste it. So,


audience, what I am going to do is ask you to shout sausage at the top


of your voices. After three, one, two, three... SAUSAGE!


You were quite loud, well done. You were very loud. But to be honest


with you, nobody was ever really going to win over this person here,


because we are in the presence of greatness. Annalisa, tell everybody


at home what title you hold all stopped I am in the Guinness book of


records for the loudest shout in the world. What is the secret? The


secret is to have a twin sister who did it first and I was determined I


was going to beat her. Sibling rivalry? Firemen absolutely. You are


a teacher so that must come in handy. Yes but I would never shout


at the children! What would be your chosen catchphrase? It is funny but


the word I won it with was quiet. Thinking of children and getting


them to settle down. Stand-by in the sound department. Brace yourself and


shout the word quiet for us. QUIET! Wow, that was impressive. Very good!


Well, Northern Ireland is not just famous for its quite sausages, but


also for many other delicacies. We have a celebrity chef here. And


Danny said early on he had a jam sandwich. This is one of our


indigenous breads. We make them on an old riddle over a fire. This is


buttermilk and baking soda and flour. This is our potato bread.


Everybody said you have got to try some of Paul McIntyre's Rob and here


we are. This is eel. I will have to try some. It has a hand rolled


butter and Ross Bridge early. And we have the salmon from up the road. It


is a blaze. There is boiled up Albert flour cider. -- elderflower


cider. Why he is the butter on there as well. Because we are being


decadent. It is not every day the One Show comes! They are all


absolutely delicious. I was a bit scared of eel, to be honest. It is a


just a natural food. It is a bit like mackerel. It comes here. I will


try a little bit. Just down from here, there is a beautiful little


place with a gorgeous harbour and a very intriguing hotel. We are on a


tight schedule. We could not stop but Angela, Joe


and the DeLorean did. I am on a mission to explore some hidden spots


along the causeway Coast Road. And we are doing it in an appropriate


form of transport, the legendary DeLorean. Where are we off to today?


This is the island coast road and this is one of the most beautiful


stretches of highway in the entire lot world. Is it straight? Guest,


just put your foot down and along we go. Wings down and map in hand, it


is time to hit the road in style. Great Scott! It is a bolt of


lightning! Such a beautiful day. Look at the colour of that water.


Isn't it incredible? I love this part of the world. Angela. Would you


like to hear some facts about the Coast Road? You know I love some


facts. It goes from Larne right round to the dried's Causeway. There


are towns nestled at the foot of the majestic Antrim -- the Giants


Causeway. Back in 1861 a Scottish engineer wanted to connect all the


points. Until that point the nearest neighbour was Scotland. They went


along the coast and blasted through rocks to create tunnels so the roads


could link each little town. It cost ?37,000. By today's standards if


they did it now, it would cost ?370 million. You have got to love the


Victorians. I want to stop somewhere. I want a deep tour. I


know the very place. So we headed to the pretty fishing village of


Carnlough with its fascinating past. This hotel changed the course of the


Second World War. That sounds a bit far-fetched, even for Joe, but I'm


hoping the owner of the hotel, Denise O'Neill, can give us some


answers. The hotel was built by the Marchioness of Londonderry and in


1921, Winston Churchill inherited the Hotel from his second cousin.


Shortly after he sold the estate of which the hotel was a part and used


the proceeds of the sale of the estate to purchase charge well.


That's where he and his wife Clementine lived for the next 40


years -- purchase Chartwell. I guess that means he could have ended up as


Basil Fawlty rather than one of the greatest Brits ever. That is cause


for celebration, too early for champagne? The champagne has caught


my eye, what's the story? Churchill was born the same year that


champagne was created and he was an enormous fan. Every year he was sent


a case of champagne for his birthday and over his lifetime some 500 cases


of champagne and adopting the -- ended up with the Churchills. I'm


afraid there's no champagne. He also enjoyed champagne with a cigar and


I've brought one, we could post the big guy. Brilliant idea. But not for


you because you're pregnant! So, no bubbly for me and time to get back


on the coastal road. Toot toot! Thank you, Angela and Joe. You would


never believe those shots were from the UK. I know, we have been very


lucky with the weather. We have. There is the story of another


wartime hero from the Glens, in the shape of a pigeon. Paddy the Pigeon.


He was the quickest pigeon to carry messages back from the Normandy


beaches during the Second World War, so he received the Gherkin medal


which is the equivalent of the Victoria Cross for animals. Let's


watch the pigeon being awarded with his medal. Look at this footage,


back in the day! The most clever animal in Ireland, north and south,


to get the medal. The owner of the medal is here, in human form, not


pigeon for! This is Kevin Spring who I'm sure has never had a welcome


like that before. You are a pigeon fancier with a military past and you


have the medal here. The only medal ever awarded. Cabbie ever seen that


film footage? No, I'm delighted. Here it is. Why did you have this


medal? It came up for auction in Dublin. It is the only medal that


has been awarded in Ireland and the Australians and the USA wanted to


buy it. Very important for it to stay in Ireland and I was lucky


enough to go to the auction and bid the highest price. Adulation is an


thanks for bringing it in. We love Kevin! -- congratulations, thanks


for bringing it in. The Script, your fifth album, Freedom Child, the song


is called Rain. # Baby, when you're gone


# Rain, rain, rain down on me # Please drop this rain, rain.


# It's such a shame # Because baby, when you're gone all


it does is rain # CHEERING


They love it! It is a hit here. Which one of you wants to tell me


about the new album? The sound for us, Rain came last on the McCord. It


was a different sound for us. We wanted to flip The Script a little


bit and give something a little bit different. Did you say rip up The


Script? Flip The Script! We wanted to come back. People feel it is


totally different but if you listen to the words we are still talking


about heartbreak. We have this new album, Freedom Child, out on the 1st


of September. You can pre-order it now. Little plug! We've been off for


two years. What have you been doing? Just chilling at home. Making tea!


Doing DIY. I bought a house, so I got stuck in at home. Things you


never get the chance to do when you're on the road. We are


constantly touring and moving around so we never get to do normal things.


Just decided to do a little bit. How do you fit music around that? Do you


keep in touch over the break or is it better to stay apart? We took a


year. It going to be six months and we took a bit of an extended break.


I went through vocal surgery last January. Are you all right now? It


was very frightening to go through, being a singer but the more research


I did, I realised that acts like a Dell, Justin Timberlake. -- Adele.


All of the greats. Has it changed at all? I had to give up smoking. I was


stupidly smoking cigarettes while I was singing. Now my voice is clear


and the falsetto is even higher than it was before, hence the falsetto in


the song Rain. It is difficult to sing at 730 in the morning! Last


time we saw Danny it was on the Voice. Are you glad that he stopped


doing that and now you can focus on The Script or are you thinking it


was nice that he was out of your head for a bit? It was great for him


to do that but it is great to have him back and to be in the band.


Great to be back on stage. It was great seeing him but now, let's get


back to business. You're going to be on tour as well. Yes, for another


ten years! Are you? Kicking off next month, we're going to be trying to


do things backwards because the last show would have been Croke Park,


75,000 people in Dublin. This time we wanted to start more slowly,


doing some intimate events. On our website you can see where we are


playing locally. There aren't many tickets left. There will be even


less after tonight! The Women's World Cup of Rugby kicks off in


Dublin before moving to Belfast and England will be defending their


title along with 11 other countries including Wales and Ireland. Getting


the sport of women's rugby over the line has been a tough game in


itself. I am Maggie Alphonsi and I play in


the endless women's rugby team. We won the Six Nations a


record-breaking seven times. COMMENTATOR: It is Maggie Alphonsi,


Waterman! But no doubt the highlight for me


was winning the World Cup in 2014. England, the world champions. I've


come to Cardiff where just over 25 years ago the first ever women's


Rugby World Cup kicked off. I've since retired for the game but


it's fair to say that if it wasn't for these two women were about to


meet, the profile of women's rugby wouldn't be where it is today.


Players and rugby fanatic Sue Durrington and Debs Griffin put


their lives on hold to organise the first ever rugby women's rugby World


Cup. We had meetings after work, we would meet at the weekend. The whole


infrastructure was around volunteering but no matter how many


doors we knocked on, you know, we weren't coming up with the money we


needed to run the tournament. My money and no support from the rugby


authorities. We were summoned to the International Rugby board and I


didn't like the fact that we were holding a World Cup because the


men's World Cup was later that year and they didn't want us to go ahead.


They felt that we were the -- demeaning the World Cup. Rugby was


seen as a man's game. As a journalist it wasn't so much low-key


as subterranean, you know, it just wasn't on anybody's radar. Yes,


women playing 5-a-side football, but rugby was something else entirely.


Denied help by the rugby authorities in Englund, Scotland and Ireland,


the Welsh Rugby union threw them a lifeline. They offered to put on a


welcome ceremony, hosting a final dinner for us. The help they were


offering made all the difference which is why we came to Wales. 12


teams from all over the world eventually rocked up to rugby venues


across South Wales and the organisers were not the only ones


facing financial difficulties. The Russian team arrived without any


money. They brought a lot of vodka and started selling it on the steps


of the town hall. I was grabbing one of the few hours of sleep I got that


week and Customs and Excise knocked on the door to tell me that I had to


go and do something about it! Luckily the local business community


came to the rescue. They donated clothes, they donated money, they


donated food and they were able to take care of the Russians when they


were here. Incredible. From small beginnings in 1991, women's rugby


has made huge strides with over 2 million women and girls playing


worldwide. Wales' women's head coach knows that the game knows a huge


debt to the organisers. From those huge small macro -- from those small


elements of Hope we owe a lot to the pioneers who started this. But


organising and playing in the tournament took its toll. I had my


daughter in the November before the tournament, she was born with a


disability, which was tough. But I don't think I dealt with it at the


time, I just sort of parked it and got on with sending more faxes and


talking to people to get the World Cup working. That was tough and I


don't think I dealt with it until afterwards. I did go down and I


didn't really see anybody for six months, I didn't go out, I was


hiding away. How about you, Sue? Did it affect you? It did, actually. The


timing, I was training, training with England, it took a big toll on


my marriage. I was training for the women's Rugby World Cup, the first


ever and that was all in my sites and it took a toll on my


relationship and marriage and sadly it ended after the World Cup. It


would have been very easy for Sue and Deborah and those people to say


that it isn't going to work, we're going to lose money, forget about it


but to their credit, they stuck at it and it has gone from strength to


strength ever since. So, now then, England are playing Spain at TPM and


then we have Wales against New Zealand, 2:45pm, that's going to be


tough! -- at 2pm. And hosts Ireland taking on Australia at 7pm. Good


luck to all the teams. Especially Ireland! Trying to be diplomatic! We


all pretty much represented here. Sticking with sport, there are many


sports that are rooted in the landscape around here and next week


is the start of the Lurig Run. We have last year's winner here. This


is a mad race, tell us what happens here because it's unbelievable. We


run up the side of the mountain. As you do! Yes, because it's so steep,


men of the -- many of the runners go down it. It is 3.8 miles, you start


off in the village here and then we run up the lane and up the side of


the mountain. How long did it take you to run it and win it? Last year


I did just under 35 minutes. 35 minutes to do nearly four miles! Up


a hill. Superwoman! Thank you. And so are you prepared for next weekend


and how are you feeling? We'll see how it goes. I love it, it's such a


great race. Are you going to slide down bearing in mind what happened


last year? Go on, very quickly! A slight short malfunction on the way.


I didn't realise. It's a good story, Gillian. A dip in the sea to cool


off? As always, yes. Straight in the Dublin C. Good luck next weekend.


Now, then, this week we are going to give away souvenirs to our guests to


remember Big Causeway Crawl. All of them have been created by fine


northern ear -ish -- Northern Irish crafts folk. Dawn is going to be


creating your gift. The process begins with heating blocks of oil


until they are completely melted. The oils are extremely acidic and I


must add in some corrosive solution and it undergoes a process called


tracing, and the mixture will become safe for contact with the skin. I


add in some sea salt and split the mixture in half, adding seaweed


powder to the other half before mixing again and leaving for 24


hours. Now it has cooled, all that is left to do is cut its two size


and leave it on Iraq for a month to allow the excess oils to dry out --


leave it on a rack. A little bit of County Antrim for you. Here is the


finished product, soap, it is called Rain, which is perfect! You can


choose which one you fancy. Shall I take this as a hint? No, no! Thank


you very much. Share them out, not all for you! That is all for


tonight. We have to say a huge thank you to the people of Cushendall. And


thank you all as well, lads. And please remember, keep sending your


pictures and videos of what you're doing over the summer holidays. The


address is down there for you and we will show some of the best on


Friday. Ready to hit the road again? This is the map, this is where we're


going. From here where going to Ballycastle, the beautiful coastal


town. We will live the final word tonight for the loudest woman in the


world. Say goodbye! GOODBYE!


The Big Causeway Crawl continues in Northern Ireland. Matt Baker and Alex Jones stop off at the annual Heart of the Glens Food Festival in Cushendall and are joined by Irish band The Script.
