Hello and welcome to the One Show

with Matt Baker...

0:00:160:00:21

And there's no sofa reshuffle for us

- Michelle remains in post

0:00:210:00:24

for the rest of the week.

0:00:240:00:26

With Alex away in New Zealand.

Congratulations on that!

0:00:260:00:30

I'm not going anywhere!

0:00:300:00:31

And as panto season draws

to a close, we've managed to secure

0:00:310:00:34

one of the country's best loved

dames.

0:00:340:00:37

Lets have a very warm welcome for...

0:00:370:00:40

Dame Darcey Bussell!

0:00:400:00:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

. Dane Darcey Bussell, how does that

0:00:420:00:48

sound? This is probably the first

time you've been introduced as Dame

0:00:480:00:55

Darcey Bussell?

At work I have a

couple of mates who have called me

0:00:550:01:01

Dame for a long time. They were a

bit shocked when they said, my God,

0:01:010:01:05

now it's official!

You've been a

regular on the Honours list for some

0:01:050:01:11

time now. Congratulations on the CBE

and OBE!

The older version as it

0:01:110:01:16

goes along!

Your friends will have

two start calling you baroness now!

0:01:160:01:25

You are not the first Strictly

judged to be, Dame. Craig is a Dame.

0:01:250:01:31

Look at him there!

He's been many

Dames.

Quite beautiful, great

0:01:310:01:41

contouring and the cheekbones?

Lovely. You see that even on the

0:01:410:01:46

show on Strictly, contouring!

Craig

is not famous for his smiley face

0:01:460:01:51

but this cheered us up when we saw

it in the papers today. Above the

0:01:510:01:55

skies of Cambridge. If you are the

mysterious high-flyer responsible or

0:01:550:01:59

think you know who the pilot is,

please do get in touch and let us

0:01:590:02:04

know!

Definitely. Thanks for the

hundreds who got in touch about the

0:02:040:02:08

NHS yesterday. Stay tuned in the

coming weeks as we may have more

0:02:080:02:11

news on that soon.

0:02:110:02:13

Over the past few weeks the British

weather has done its worst...

0:02:130:02:16

If it's not been freezing

temperatures, it's been

0:02:160:02:17

storms Dylan and Eleanor.

0:02:170:02:18

Joe's been looking at how our

battered coastline is putting

0:02:180:02:21

itself back in shape.

0:02:210:02:25

Welcome to the new coastline of

Cornwall, where last week there were

0:02:250:02:30

sand dunes, now... There are sand

cliffs.

I've lived here nearly 50

0:02:300:02:38

years, I've never seen anything like

this in the whole of my life.

0:02:380:02:42

The transformation of some of

Cornwall's most beautiful beaches is

0:02:420:02:46

down to the battering of Storm

Eleanor last week. This professor

0:02:460:02:51

has been studying these beaches for

over a decade.

I think the big

0:02:510:02:56

difference between last week's storm

and most storms was it was

0:02:560:03:01

exceptionally large tide and waves,

coincided exactly. Before the

0:03:010:03:06

storms, the slope would have been

quite steep but not vertical. As the

0:03:060:03:10

tide rises and the waves get big, it

starts wetting the bottom of the

0:03:100:03:14

slopes and then it starts to fail,

starts to collapse because of the

0:03:140:03:18

weight of the sand on top.

Somewhere

else on to its owner found Cliff is

0:03:180:03:25

Perranporth. Last year the programme

came live from this beach. Today the

0:03:250:03:29

manager is trying to rebuild it.

Tom, you came back here, first day

0:03:290:03:33

back after Christmas, what was this

place like?

A Brett Goode Rabat the

0:03:330:03:38

front of the building about 20 foot

down. Those bridges were out. We had

0:03:380:03:44

about 70 boards down as we're doing

a load of building at the moment,

0:03:440:03:47

they weigh half a tonne each and we

are still missing 12. There are some

0:03:470:03:50

in the car park.

All the way over

there?

Yes.

What are you doing now,

0:03:500:03:57

there are diggers around, what will

you do to this cliff edge?

Reinforce

0:03:570:04:01

the sand, get the tractor up and

then just gradually pull it out.

0:04:010:04:10

Ten miles down the coast, part of

this Sea Wall was also destroyed.

0:04:100:04:15

The CE has undermined the foundation

of the wall and then the wind blew

0:04:150:04:19

it over because the wind was so

strong and literally blew the wall

0:04:190:04:22

over.

My reaction was complete

horror. The weather was more

0:04:220:04:25

ferocious than you could have ever

imagined.

0:04:250:04:29

While some of these sand cliffs are

a few feet high and a bit of fun,

0:04:290:04:34

others cut deep into what were sand

dunes, leaving the RNLI station in a

0:04:340:04:39

precarious position.

They used to be a sound ramps that

0:04:390:04:43

came out to roughly just behind

where I'm standing, and that ramp

0:04:430:04:48

was the access for the lifeguards to

be able to get up and down with

0:04:480:04:52

emergency vehicles. There is no sand

dunes left and it has affected the

0:04:520:04:56

whole of the foundations of the

decking and surveillance are. At the

0:04:560:04:59

moment, as you can see, it's quite

dangerous.

The sand from the dunes

0:04:590:05:04

were swept down the beach and into

the sea. In the summer it will

0:05:040:05:08

slowly be pushed back up. What we

need to do, should we be building

0:05:080:05:11

defences here?

We should avoid

building. We should let the

0:05:110:05:19

coastline be dynamic and do its own

thing, and we can do that if we

0:05:190:05:23

don't interfere.

Ultimately you just

too close to the beach? It's lovely

0:05:230:05:29

when people can have a drink here in

the summer but it's effectively

0:05:290:05:32

built on the sand. Is this mother

nature calling time at the bar and

0:05:320:05:36

serving you notice?

We are in a

battle with mother nature which is

0:05:360:05:42

probably one of the stupidest fights

to pick.

0:05:420:05:46

What a battle to be having.

0:05:460:05:49

The next storm starts with F, any

ideas?

I want a flamenco! It comes

0:05:490:05:59

from Sevilla.

Disappointingly it is

Ffion, followed by Georgina. That is

0:05:590:06:09

my knowledge done!

It's this time of

year with the bad weather, we really

0:06:090:06:15

miss Strictly. Such a feel-good

show. Sitting in cosy, warm, the

0:06:150:06:20

glitz and glamour.

They are starting

up again soon, the tour.

The tour

0:06:200:06:26

coming up?

Next week, the 19th of

January in Birmingham.

Have you had

0:06:260:06:33

a bit of a Strictly detox quest

might do you need to shower off all

0:06:330:06:36

of the glitter?

I do miss wearing

sequins. You become a magpie

0:06:360:06:44

automatically. Then you want to be a

magpie for the rest of the year. You

0:06:440:06:47

want to be covered in glitter all

the time! I miss it horribly.

Do

0:06:470:06:52

you?

Not wearing sparkly things all

the time.

This is your first tour?

0:06:520:06:58

I've been on tour all my life as a

dancer, over 20 years I've done

0:06:580:07:04

touring. I was really young then.

It's a bit odd going back... But I'm

0:07:040:07:09

really excited, actually. It's more

about the professional dancers.

0:07:090:07:13

Tempted to get on the dance floor?

Always, always! They don't want to

0:07:130:07:19

seek an old ballerina on the dance

floor!

What? Come on guys!

Thank

0:07:190:07:25

you... Maybe Ore, is hosting it, we

had a giggle and thought maybe we

0:07:250:07:34

will have a dance or something just

open. There will be so much going

0:07:340:07:38

on, they don't need me, they really

don't. I will be behind the desk

0:07:380:07:43

doing my bit.

You say you are an old

ballet dancer but you go back to the

0:07:430:07:47

Royal Ballet School and coach

occasionally?

I coach in the Ballet

0:07:470:07:51

School and the company as well, the

Royal Ballet Company, which I love

0:07:510:07:55

to do. I think it is something you

can never lose, it's part of your

0:07:550:08:01

skin, it's everything about my life

and I love giving back and all the

0:08:010:08:06

experience I've learned from being a

professional myself. You know, gosh,

0:08:060:08:12

when I was a professional and I was

doing all those shows, you wanted

0:08:120:08:17

somebody to constantly be that

support, to tell you you're doing

0:08:170:08:20

the right thing when you are doing

the wrong thing or how it could be

0:08:200:08:23

improved.

And the health benefits as

well, which we will move on to talk

0:08:230:08:27

about, especially the younger

generation, is something you really

0:08:270:08:30

focused on. You have come up with

these dance routines, almost like

0:08:300:08:34

fitness DVD?

It is a fitness. I love

dance and I want everyone to

0:08:340:08:40

experience it. I think if it has to

be there for everybody, for any

0:08:400:08:45

ability and any age, but especially

for kids, young. This is the DVD.

0:08:450:08:51

Your daughters were heavily involved

as well?

I had to try everything out

0:08:510:08:55

on them. For me, I get so bored

really quickly of fitness. I needed

0:08:550:09:00

something that would really

stimulate me and keep my mind

0:09:000:09:03

working as well, not just going

into... On a jogging machine or a

0:09:030:09:08

bicycle or standing in the gym. I

needed something that stimulates my

0:09:080:09:12

nerves and muscles and is a full

body work-out. But you are so

0:09:120:09:16

distracted because it so much fun,

I'm just smiling all the way

0:09:160:09:19

through.

That's what you need for

keeping fit!

I can't... I hate

0:09:190:09:26

getting fit. It was great when it

was of my job but now I know have I

0:09:260:09:30

have to keep my body moving, it's

important to keep the body moving,

0:09:300:09:33

supple and strong. I wanted to

devise something that had masses of

0:09:330:09:37

variety. That's why we kind of go

round the world.

How does it work as

0:09:370:09:42

much each routine is like a couple

of minutes long.

Yes, like Sprints,

0:09:420:09:47

the best way to get fit. Not an

extreme at all. It's about keeping

0:09:470:09:51

it entertaining. We do go around the

world, so we have flamenco and

0:09:510:09:55

African. This is only 14 genres, we

have about 42.

Interesting.

You can

0:09:550:10:04

never get bored and there is

something for everyone, which is

0:10:040:10:07

incredibly important as well. With

kids, I love to see them. There's

0:10:070:10:11

all these styles they've never even

tried. They've seen all the pop

0:10:110:10:14

videos and have all the popular

music but when you suddenly throw

0:10:140:10:17

something in the mix they have never

tried before, they just light up.

0:10:170:10:20

They don't even realise they are

exercising.

Chances are if you do it

0:10:200:10:25

at home, they can do it longer!

LAUGHTER

0:10:250:10:31

We forget the endorphins. You want

to get kids active, feel those great

0:10:310:10:35

endorphins and you do that by being

physical and also by having a laugh.

0:10:350:10:39

It is great to do it together, it

really is.

0:10:390:10:43

Most people will end up

breaking their New Year's

0:10:430:10:45

resolutions to become more active

because of a lack of willpower

0:10:450:10:49

or maybe the lure of a warm sofa.

0:10:490:10:52

It is quite warm in here!

0:10:520:10:55

Others are quite capable of sticking

to their fitness resolutions but,

0:10:550:10:57

says Tanni Grey Thompson,

may end up breaking them

0:10:570:10:59

through absolutely no

fault of their own.

0:10:590:11:02

Sport is meant to be for all of us,

for the naturally sporty like me or

0:11:050:11:10

for those who just want to be

healthy. The 2012 Olympics and

0:11:100:11:14

Paralympics were supposed to inspire

us all to get out and get moving but

0:11:140:11:17

five years later, a survey has

revealed three out of five disabled

0:11:170:11:21

people rarely or never take part in

sport or a physical activity. Which

0:11:210:11:25

just isn't good enough. 29 you wrote

Katie has down syndrome. She wanted

0:11:250:11:30

to get fit but struggled to get to

grips with the gym without any

0:11:300:11:33

support.

A couple of years ago she

hurt her back, so she stopped going.

0:11:330:11:43

She just used to sit and watch TV,

and couldn't get her out of the

0:11:430:11:49

house.

Everything changed the Katie

when she met 24 year rolled gym

0:11:490:11:53

instructor Ben. The unique NHS

funded pilot scream aiming to make

0:11:530:12:00

the leisure industry much more

inclusive for disabled people. What

0:12:000:12:03

sort of barriers did you see around

disabled people stopping them

0:12:030:12:08

getting fit and active?

Some

wariness about attending an

0:12:080:12:14

activity, if the light wasn't right,

if there were things on the floor

0:12:140:12:16

they couldn't say, if people would

be able to communicate with them if

0:12:160:12:21

they had a learning difficulty.

Then

worked on upping Katie's cardio

0:12:210:12:26

fitness and now she attends weekly

dance class. Have you seen a real

0:12:260:12:30

change in Katie since she came to

the gym?

Yes, her lung capacity

0:12:300:12:36

improved and she was making friends.

You were more engaged, weren't you?

0:12:360:12:40

Got a lot out of it rather than just

health outcomes.

Now she says, will

0:12:400:12:45

do this one, do that one.

Pictures,

drawing a circle.

Do you like

0:12:450:12:55

colouring as well? Lap yet. Then has

a new client who is autistic, and

0:12:550:13:03

has learning difficulties. Today Ben

is showing Sammy how to use machines

0:13:030:13:06

he hasn't tried before. Before you

met Ben, how hard was it to go to

0:13:060:13:10

the gym?

I struggled a little bit to

move the equipment.

I think he just

0:13:100:13:18

needed someone to support him, give

it a go, this is how we use the

0:13:180:13:21

equipment.

What do you like about

coming to the gym, how does it make

0:13:210:13:25

you feel?

Feels better, more

confident.

Sammy and Katie are

0:13:250:13:31

getting the gym support they need in

Salford but the rest of the country

0:13:310:13:34

needs to catch up. I hear from

disabled people who have being

0:13:340:13:39

denied access and people turned away

from sports clubs, is not

0:13:390:13:43

acceptable. I have come to talk to

Mike from sport England to ask him

0:13:430:13:46

why. There are still some examples

of disabled people who have been

0:13:460:13:50

turned away, do you think that is

acceptable?

No, it's not acceptable.

0:13:500:13:55

Really sad to hear that. What I

think we can do at sport England is

0:13:550:14:01

help sports clubs providing

practical advice and training on how

0:14:010:14:04

you can include people with

disabilities, really simple things

0:14:040:14:07

which can be done to include people

and it's our job to help them do

0:14:070:14:11

that.

And how healthy is a 12 week

0:14:110:14:16

intervention kick-starting disabled

people's relationship with sport and

0:14:160:14:18

the benefits are far reaching.

Disabled people are much more likely

0:14:180:14:24

to develop obesity, hypertension,

anxiety and depression. I think by

0:14:240:14:28

creating more inclusive

opportunities for disabled people to

0:14:280:14:33

exercise and remain physically

active, the more we can improve the

0:14:330:14:36

health outcomes for disabled people.

How was the training session?

It was

0:14:360:14:40

fantastic!

You're the best.

He's the

best? Does he make you work hard?

0:14:400:14:47

Yes. It is important schemes like

this and more are rolled out across

0:14:470:14:51

the country. It is a matter of

ordinary disabled people being

0:14:510:14:55

visible in sport and gyms, not just

an elite athletes.

If they can see

0:14:550:14:59

it, they can be it.

0:14:590:15:01

Thank you. Someone who lives by that

sentiment is high-flying 14-year-old

0:15:010:15:12

Izzy Weall with her dad. APPLAUSE

0:15:120:15:17

Izzy, you recently won

the Young Achiever prize

0:15:170:15:19

at the Pride of Sport Awards.

0:15:190:15:21

So tell us how that came about?

0:15:210:15:24

They contacted my mamma whilst I was

on the school holidays and she was

0:15:240:15:28

writing the notes.

I was reading

what she was writing and I got

0:15:280:15:32

confused. She got off the phone and

explain the whole thing to me. We

0:15:320:15:34

were both in shock for the next

couple of hours, couldn't believe

0:15:340:15:37

what had happened. Then it happened

about a month later and it wasn't

0:15:370:15:41

until I turned up that I realised

how big an event it was. There was

0:15:410:15:46

like a red carpet and there were so

many celebrities and sporting people

0:15:460:15:50

that I recognised. They got that

point where was overwhelmed.

Izzy,

0:15:500:15:56

how did you find trampolining?

Year

seven at my secondary school,

0:15:560:16:02

started that at a club. All my

friends were going to it. By

0:16:020:16:08

December, I started competing and I

won. From there, I've kind of taking

0:16:080:16:12

it a bit more seriously.

And

exhausting, trampolining! It is

0:16:120:16:17

really tiring!

Olly, as Izzy's

father, did you think Izzy could

0:16:170:16:24

achieve this?

0:16:240:16:29

We didn't, after she got ill we

tried lots of different things and

0:16:290:16:32

sports and trying to find one that

clicked for her that she was able to

0:16:320:16:35

do, that she enjoyed doing. Lots of

people said she's got blades, she

0:16:350:16:40

can go running at its nice and easy

but that didn't work for her. But

0:16:400:16:45

trampolining was it and it just

clicked and she loves it and enjoys

0:16:450:16:48

it, that's the main thing.

How old

were you when you got meningitis?

I

0:16:480:16:53

was seven.

You haven't stopped

trampolining because you have so

0:16:530:16:58

much ambition. This is unbelievable,

the next sport you are going to try

0:16:580:17:02

is motor racing.

What?

You are

fearless!

They saw some of the

0:17:020:17:10

videos I had posted on YouTube.

Yeah.

They liked my attitude and

0:17:100:17:16

they thought it might be a challenge

I wanted to do next, so they

0:17:160:17:21

contacted my dad and my dad told me

and I said, of course I want to do

0:17:210:17:26

that, so we've started doing stuff

with them, visiting them, and

0:17:260:17:29

working out how we are going to

adapt the car.

What is the feeling

0:17:290:17:33

on the household on this?

It is a

bit mixed. Mum's seen the video of

0:17:330:17:41

the racing and said, my God, I don't

want you going that fast. I am a bit

0:17:410:17:46

of a petrol head so I'm supportive

and on her side there. Obviously

0:17:460:17:49

going to see some of this is good

for me as well.

Good on you, girl.

0:17:490:17:58

Spread the word and make it happen.

We are getting the system to work

0:17:580:18:03

with the team, they have adapted

cars that they use for their

0:18:030:18:06

disabled racing team they have

already, they have got to use their

0:18:060:18:12

hand controls to be legged controls

with Izzy and we are putting this on

0:18:120:18:16

to a simulator they will try out.

We

know you are a big fan of Strictly,

0:18:160:18:21

and lots of people have heard about

this venture into the world of motor

0:18:210:18:25

racing, including this bloke, you

might recognise him.

Hey, Izzy, it's

0:18:250:18:30

Jonnie Peacock. I wanted to say a

personal good luck for you and team

0:18:300:18:35

Brit trying to get around the race

track, it's incredible. What you've

0:18:350:18:38

done over the last few years has

been amazing, and well done on the

0:18:380:18:41

international trampolining champion.

APPLAUSE

0:18:410:18:50

Is he going to be on the tour?

Yes,

he's on the tour, Jonnie Peacock,

0:18:500:18:56

all of the Strictly finalists, and

we have an invitation for any show

0:18:560:19:00

you'd like to go to on the tour

because it starts on the 19th of

0:19:000:19:03

January, so if you'd like to come

along with your family with love to

0:19:030:19:07

show you backstage and introduce you

to everybody, tip Jonnie.

What about

0:19:070:19:11

that?

APPLAUSE

0:19:110:19:14

.

0:19:140:19:17

Not everybody is a fan of selfies.

I'm sure Darcey is asked for

0:19:170:19:22

hundreds and hundreds of them but

nobody is more sick of them than our

0:19:220:19:25

Michael Douglas. 2018, how with the

old and in with the new, so much has

0:19:250:19:32

changed in the world since this time

last year. We had an election.

And I

0:19:320:19:37

will now form a government.

President Trump took office.

And I

0:19:370:19:42

will never ever let you down.

We

even got a new Strictly judge.

You

0:19:420:19:47

did great.

But how much have I

changed? Do I look any different?

0:19:470:19:52

That's what I want to find out, so

for the last 365 days I've taken a

0:19:520:19:58

selfie at the same time every day,

no matter where I was in the world,

0:19:580:20:02

and no matter what I was doing. Up

to the present-day. Here I am

0:20:020:20:11

amongst all of the selfies I took in

the last year. Crikey, it's a little

0:20:110:20:15

to be honest. This is me on the

morning after my birthday looking a

0:20:150:20:21

little bit rough there. This,

however, is the first one I took on

0:20:210:20:25

the 1st of January, and this here is

the last one I took yesterday. So,

0:20:250:20:31

can you see the difference? I mean,

have I aged? I'm going to need an

0:20:310:20:39

expert eye, so I've come to

Newcastle University to meet a

0:20:390:20:46

dermatologist to analyse me, my

selfies and I. As you know, I've

0:20:460:20:50

been taking selfies of myself for a

year. So this is the first one. I'm

0:20:500:20:55

smiling because I'm happy and a bit

tipsy. This is my last. So, could

0:20:550:21:02

you say that I have aged in a year?

I think you have, clearly you have

0:21:020:21:07

more damage on your nose than at the

beginning of the year. There is a

0:21:070:21:13

lot of dehydration taking place here

compared to the beginning of the

0:21:130:21:15

year, so I think that's pretty

clear.

OK. But could the Professor

0:21:150:21:20

pinpoint the start of my decline?

I've pulled out this picture here

0:21:200:21:24

and you've got some nice early

visible signs of ageing here.

0:21:240:21:27

Really?

When was this?

This was

April on a skiing holiday in the

0:21:270:21:34

French Alps.

You've got damage to

your nose, lots of uneven skin tone

0:21:340:21:38

and dryness and everything else,

which you can see starting to break

0:21:380:21:43

out into more visible wrinkles.

Yeah.

A skiing village at 5000 feet,

0:21:430:21:49

you've got somewhere like 40% less

filtering of UV at that height,

0:21:490:21:53

which is why you get more sunburnt

more quickly on a mountaintop.

Venue

0:21:530:21:57

would do on a beach.

This year

you've moved yourself into the fast

0:21:570:22:02

lane of ageing. Now you have a

choice to move into the slow lane.

0:22:020:22:07

It's the slow lane for me, I'm

0:22:070:22:11

afraid.

So, according to the professor a bit

0:22:110:22:12

of sun damage I got around my nose

in April is the most likely area

0:22:120:22:17

where future wrinkles will develop.

If only there was some way of

0:22:170:22:20

looking into that future. Well,

there is. Time for selfie number

0:22:200:22:27

366. I'm getting my picture taken

with a revolutionary camera. I'm

0:22:270:22:31

excited. It predicts what I will

look like in five years' time based

0:22:310:22:35

on my current skin profile and this

cosmetic surgeon can explain the

0:22:350:22:40

results.

These are the pictures we

were talking about. If you look very

0:22:400:22:47

carefully, spots, wrinkles, texture,

pores,, they are the ones that are

0:22:470:22:53

visible and then we have the

invisible ones, the UV spots.

Is

0:22:530:22:56

that bad? That looks bad.

It is a

scary picture, you were skiing and

0:22:560:23:03

that damage shows on your face, and

this damage within reason is

0:23:030:23:06

permanent, because it damages the

DNA of yourselves.

Well, the camera

0:23:060:23:11

never lies, but now for the moment

of truth, what will my skin looked

0:23:110:23:15

like five years from now? -- cells.

Slightly younger or slightly older?

0:23:150:23:23

This is younger. -- older, these

lines are becoming more numerous.

It

0:23:230:23:32

is those pesky skiing wrinkles.

After taking a selfie every day for

0:23:320:23:36

the last year I've managed to

capture the ageing process in

0:23:360:23:40

action, but I've also had a little

glimpse into the future, which to be

0:23:400:23:43

honest is not very nice. One good

thing has come off today, I no

0:23:430:23:47

longer have to take any more of

these selfies. Delete!

0:23:470:23:53

Michael, I think he still looks good

and he has a great head of hair,

0:23:530:23:57

doesn't he? He might be worrying

about the signs of ageing, but

0:23:570:24:01

Darcey, you look fantastic, I'm sure

that's not what you worry about when

0:24:010:24:04

looking in the mirror.

Never!

Get

the DVD on and do a bit of dancing,

0:24:040:24:10

no need to worry.

0:24:100:24:12

Time to catch up with Mike on day

two of his deep sea adventure.

0:24:120:24:15

I'm on a three-week expedition to

try and filmed some of Britain's

0:24:230:24:27

biggest and most elusive marine

animals. Filming aboard the Celtic

0:24:270:24:33

Explorer, a high-tech research

vessel, The One Show wildlife team

0:24:330:24:37

and I have joined a 5000 nautical

mile Fischer of a being conducted by

0:24:370:24:43

the marine Institute of Ireland, and

we were only a few hours into the

0:24:430:24:47

expedition when we were treated to a

close encounter with a huge pod of

0:24:470:24:50

common dolphins. On the starboard

bow I'm watching common dolphins

0:24:500:24:58

just by the side of the boat. I'd

say there are 20 or 30 just down

0:24:580:25:02

this side here. We are now more than

100 miles from shore leaving is

0:25:020:25:15

exposed to hostile weather

conditions, and less than a week

0:25:150:25:17

into our journey, things have taken

a turn for the worse. Wind speed has

0:25:170:25:24

reached 39 knots, meaning we are

sailing through a force eight storm.

0:25:240:25:35

It's fairly brutal out here right

now. The wind's pelting my face. One

0:25:350:25:41

minute it's all sea, the next minute

it's all sky. It's like being on a

0:25:410:25:49

roller-coaster.

0:25:490:25:52

After a broken night's sleep, the

storm has passed and the vital task

0:25:520:25:58

of catching fish for the scientists

to study can begin again. The ship's

0:25:580:26:04

crew is made up of many experienced

fishermen, Frank Kenney has been

0:26:040:26:08

fishing these waters for most of his

life.

I started fishing on the east

0:26:080:26:13

coast of Ireland when I was 16 and

as the fishing vessels got bigger

0:26:130:26:17

over the years, we went further

afield, went into the North Sea, as

0:26:170:26:26

far-away as Ireland.

It's a

dangerous job. When I was an

0:26:260:26:30

apprentice, the seamanship teacher,

the first day there were 21 of us,

0:26:300:26:34

he said to us, I'm looking down at

ute 21 lads.

I guarantee one of you

0:26:340:26:39

will be drowned if you will take up

the fishing career. And lo and

0:26:390:26:43

behold, sadly he was right. After

about three years one of the lads

0:26:430:26:48

was drowned, fell off a fishing

vessel. So it can be dangerous and

0:26:480:26:53

you definitely always have to be on

your guard.

Frank's words are put

0:26:530:26:57

into sharp perspective by a ceremony

of remembrance for the crew of a

0:26:570:27:01

rescue helicopter who died in the

line of duty just six months

0:27:010:27:03

previously.

We gather here on the

stern of the Celtic Explorer to lay

0:27:030:27:13

this wreath in memory of those who

lost their lives at sea in the last

0:27:130:27:16

12 months. We remember in particular

the crew of rescue 166, may God

0:27:160:27:23

bring some comfort to their families

and make the souls of all those who

0:27:230:27:27

were lost at sea rest in peace.

0:27:270:27:31

As I returned to my mission, the

sea's true elemental nature as a

0:27:440:27:48

source of both wonder and fear stays

with me. And true to form what I see

0:27:480:27:56

next blows me away.

0:27:560:27:57

I'm looking at dolphins, about twice

the size of the common dolphins,

0:27:590:28:07

four metres in length. Back out in

the deep water, 100 miles from the

0:28:070:28:12

coast of Scotland we are finally

deep enough to be in their hunting

0:28:120:28:15

grounds. There is the head popping

out of the Risso's dolphin., much

0:28:150:28:24

paler great, that's because of the

scarring from fighting, they can

0:28:240:28:28

look white in certain lights. As

they age the whole body can turn

0:28:280:28:32

white with healed bite wounds from

other Risso's and oceanic squid.

0:28:320:28:41

This part of the North Atlantic is

coming up with the goods. After

0:28:410:28:46

incredible views of Risso's dolphins

I can't wait to see what we discover

0:28:460:28:49

next.

We have not long to wait because

0:28:490:28:53

he's back tomorrow. From our seas to

our skies earlier we sought this

0:28:530:29:01

picture of Cambridgeshire, that

lovely smiley face. We have no

0:29:010:29:03

confirmation of who the pilot is but

we have had four e-mails Hussein

0:29:030:29:09

Mark Jeffries, so, Mark, if it's you

we know you are a stunt pilot and it

0:29:090:29:13

cheered us up.

Darcey, thank you for

joining us tonight, good luck with

0:29:130:29:18

the tour and your dance fitness

programme.

Thank you.

0:29:180:29:23

We're back tomorrow with Death

in Paradise stars Ardal O'Hanlon

0:29:230:29:26

and Josephine Jorbert,

along with Lorraine Kelly.

0:29:260:29:30

Matt Baker and Michelle Ackerley are joined in the studio by Dame Darcey Bussell, while Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson looks at a pioneering fitness programme for disabled people.
