Hello and welcome to the One Show with Alex Jones.


We've got some impressive guests tonight.


Seven years ago we met this chap, Kieron Williamson, who had just


Now he's 14 and selling paintings for over ?50,000.


And on our sofa is a man who has also dabbled in fine art,


As well as starring in Our Friends In The North,


Doctor Who and the A-Word, he's done a stint of nude modelling.


It's - thankfully fully clothed - Christopher Eccleston.


Obviously because viewers would expect it, we did intense research


to see if we could find one of the pictures. But unfortunately, it was


a fail. It was at the Slade School of fine art.


If anyone at home can help us please feel free to send one along


to our usual address, we'd love to show it.


What are your memories of those times? Cold! That would be the first


memory! Liberating? It was, slightly. Also could be quite hard


on the ego because artists can be quite critical about the physical


form. They would say things like see how he is fat and thin there. So


ritual humiliation. I used to go straight to the pub once I'd got the


money. Well we will see what we get in, it could be gold.


Last time you were here, Chris, we spoke about your mum selling


pastries in the stands at Old Trafford.


That's right, she used to sell pies and T in the 50s when the Busby


Babes were there. So we hope she's


watching this next film. Kev Duala has been back to Liverpool


to see how match day pies are helping to solve


an affordable housing crisis. In the shadow of Liverpool football


ground rov derelict terraced houses and at the end of thriving bakery


run by and for the community. Home-baked, the a match day fixture.


I never really ate pies before but we found this place and I was sold.


I like the idea that helping the community. The staff are lovely and


you get to know a lot of people who come in regularly. Seven years ago


this bakery was scheduled for demolition and was shut down. But it


flickered back into life by the skin of its teeth through the


stubbornness and resilience of local people. Bridget is co-funder. I have


to try one of these. Go for it. It is lovely. This is a story of brick


and determination. Where did it start? There was a lot of demolition


happening in our area and as a group of residents we came together and


decided to open the bakery as a community business and managed to


save it from demolition. How did you get the council to give you that


reprieve? Baby by showing that it could be a viable business.


Originally supported by grants, it now thrives on its products and


wants to convince the council that it can expand. We have a flat above


the bakery and were now refurbishing that. With affordable housing in


short supply across the UK this business wants to turn the terrorist


into shops and plans for the community for that they've already


secured ?140,000 of lottery money to create a home out of this. My


goodness! You have your work cut out. And the refurbishment will be a


training project for three local apprentices, men poured by Paul. As


you can see there is a lot to do, roofs, ceilings, floors, plumbing


and electricity, everything. And once more after apprentices Dave,


Bradley and Leanne, will have the option of renting a room. It is


their own version of social housing. We've been learning from the


builders and then we may be get to put that into practice. How


important is it for you to be involved? Very much, because I would


like to live here and it is giving back to the community. It does not


stop there, they're also transforming a patch of land at the


end of the terraced into a public square, building their own joinery


classroom and greenhouse to grow food for local people. But it is


affordable homes that the heart of this, only 28,000 funded by the


government were completed last year. Down by half from 2011. With the


huge housing crisis across the UK, what you're doing could be of help?


I think it can. Over there we have houses just like those next to the


bakery and they had been pulled down and what has been built now at the


profit goes to private developers. We are offering to build houses by


people and for people and the profit stays within the organisation and is


reinvested in the neighbourhood. The benefits to the residents are plain


to see. Sue Humphreys helped to set up the project. Her family have


lived here for 100 years and she is seen first-hand the fabric of the


community decline. It is sad to see the property is boarded up and left,


something had to be done. Could this be a turning point to rejuvenate


this community spirit? Yes, we're somewhere where the community can be


together and rebuild that community. Make friends with your neighbours.


Home-baked is one of several projects regenerating rundown parts


of Liverpool including selling homes for ?1. And the council is waiting


for it to succeed. This is the deputy mayor. It is not about the


council telling community is what should happen, it is about community


is being fully engaged and their ideas coming forward, there are


initiatives and passion driving these agendas. If the project


flourish as it could be rolled out elsewhere. I'm born and bred in


Liverpool and grew up in a really strong community. But what has been


sad to watch is how the communities have been eroded. But what is great


to see is what this company have done to rekindle that community


spirit. And if they can do it may be other parts of the country can as


well. Financial journalist


Simon Read joins us now. As Kev said at the end of the film,


can this happen elsewhere? Could this help with the housing


crisis is right it is happening all over the country, communities


getting involved to create this kind of projects to bring back affordable


housing to the local community. Great to see Right On The Money back


on our screens this morning. It's hosted by Dom Littlewood


and Denise Lewis. You of course are an expert


on the show, giving us tips What kind of stories do


you come across this series? Well all kinds of people. We have


sisters from London who started up a street food market. They're not


making a lot of money. And one woman... They are too generous. The


portions too big! A woman from Liverpool, the biggest financial


problem is that she's too generous. And we met Nicky who just spends


when she feels like it. And Nicky has lots of things beneath her


stairs. Let's take a look. What is all this? Tea bag. How many,


millions! 1100. Nicky looks like she is going into World War II with all


those supplies underneath the stairs.


Something you look at in the series is the idea of the sharing economy,


where people make money out of renting things they already own.


And we've got some people in the audience tonight


Leticia, this is a picture of your house. It is upside down! What is it


that you are renting? I rent out my drive space. I have three spaces, it


is all done online and it has been a great moneyspinner for me. How much


do you make per month? Roughly ?200. Not to be sniffed at. And Vicky,


let's take a look. Is that your garden? A section of the garden up


in Norfolk and we rent it out for camping. Self-catering accommodation


for up to four people. So how much do you make per month? Around ?1000


in peak season. The summer months. This is a really good game show! And


Daisy at the end, I love this concept. This is shared and


breakfast which we run in Bristol from the garden. It is shared that


we lived in when we were renovating and now we'll run it as a bed and


breakfast. How much to make per month? ?1400! Anyone with a


shared... You have had some thoughts of what to do with your place? Yes,


I heard about this scheme, people making their homes into art


galleries. One of my closest friends is an artist. I keep trying to


convince her to do an exhibition and so I'm going to do it in my house.


It is a great idea. And theatre groups are doing the same thing,


using people's homes. For me it is not really for the money but the


interest, and my children being around art. I'm still thinking about


that bed-and-breakfast, genius! You're going to inspire the nation!


Thank you all for joining us and thank you Simon.


Right on the money is on BBC1 at nine fifteen every morning


It's been a special day at Wimbledon as we've seen all 64


players left in the singles competition play today.


And of course congratulations to Johanna Konta and Andy Murray


who made it through to the next round.


As well as their impeccable racquet-work -


there's another kind of racquet you can hear on court.


Tommy's been to see if grunting equals greatness.


Last year almost 500,000 people came down to Wimbledon and sat mesmerised


by a little yellow ball. Waiting patiently for the winning point.


While today the wait is over. And here they come. And I have something


that they have dubbed a secret weapon. Meet Jordan, research at the


University of Sussex. He says he can predict the winner of a much longer


for the last game. Unsurprisingly it all comes down to grunting. Some say


grunting is a bit annoying. Others say it is part of the passionate


five tennis but it can predict a winner? That is right, we did


research at the University of Sussex and looking at players across


matches that they had won and lost. We found in general the pitch of the


grant is higher when the players lose them when they win. So then


surely with a lower grade you're guaranteed to be a winner? Exactly.


We found this right from the start of the match suggesting it is longer


term factors at play, rankings, these things could affect how


stressed or dominant we're feeling. And that can -- that can affect the


pitch of the voice. Is it like an animal thing? Mail Red Deer war


adage other and use that to assess the size of the other. So we see the


same thing happening with humans. Let's put it to the test. How do you


feel about grunting on court? It is a bit weird. It is a bit disturbing.


It just shows they're putting in an effort. I play tennis and I do not


grant. Not even a little noise when you're giving it everything? Let's


do a family effort! That for me is a winning round. Do you grant in any


situation? Only when Federer loses the point. Time to put the theory to


the test. Here at the third round of the women's singles. Hill is going


to win? -- who was going to win. If I had to pick someone it would be


Diaz. Based on the grunting. The louder that your grunting and the


deeper, the more likely you are to win. Let's hear it from you. That is


more like it. She just lost the point. She did. So


does grunting serve up the aces question mark is match point back on


court 18. He did not get it right this time, but if you're listening,


Andy, probably worth a shot! Now we're going to know which tennis


players have watched this show because all the Test matches, the


pitch is going to get lower. Chris, we've been watching some


of your stuff, and you too can be Yes, but the question is,


can you guess your grunt? We've got three grunts to listen


to and one of them is yours. The other two belong


to tennis players, you have My right to say that you have


enhanced my grunt? No. It is definitely not number three.


It's number two. He goes straight for it. Let's have a go. Number two?


You say that that is you? Let's have a look. It was number two!


APPLAUSE I would recognise my grunt anywhere!


That leads us nicely to The Leftovers. You grunt them because


your character is attacked. Series three is out now


on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV - to take us back to the beginning,


it's about on life on earth Phil us in for those people who have


not seen the first and second series. It's originally from a


novel, and it put forward the idea that I think, 2%, I've forgotten, 2%


of the population of the world disappear on the same day. Some


people claim it is the Rapture, as proper sized in the Bible and some


people including my character, a man of God who feels he has not been


chosen by God, deny that. That is why my character gets beaten so much


because he is trying to discredit people who have apparently been


chosen. So it is about faith but also is a character driven comedy


drama. It is about something that we all experience, loss. It is about


grief. The novelist wrote it, he was playing tennis one day with his son,


the phone rang and he got the news that one of his parents had died. It


was a beautiful summer day, she was happy, there had been a road


accident, I know this sounds grim but three years later he found


himself writing this novel, three years later he realised he was


writing The Leftovers about his own experiences. He spent a lot of time


with characters trying to make sense of life. The character you play in


the novel was relatively small but you have played some part in


developing him. I was tipped off that HBO were going to adapt the


novel. I had read it and there was this character, a man of God, who


isn't "Chosen". I thought that was a fantastic character for a drama. The


writer, who wrote Lost, he also wrote The Leftovers. He heard I was


interested and we met in London. He said, I wasn't going to put this


character in this series, why do you want to play him. And he put him in


the show. And it has really worked, in a way for me. Open some doors in


America for me. Let's see a moment from the first


episode of the new series where your character


is delivering a sermon. I get a feeling in this place


sometimes, the same feeling I got when my wife awoke from a


three-year, the day that I brought her here. Mary. The same feeling I


had after being told by countless doctors that Mary could not bear a


child. But she did bear one here. Noah is a little shy, like his dad.


My friends, I've got that feeling again so if something happens on


October 14, you have all come to the right place.


APPLAUSE We will leave it there as a teaser


for everyone to enjoy because you have been incredibly busy. You have


finished filming another series of The A-Word which is a passion of


yours. BBC One show. It is brilliant, when is it back on. We


think it will broadcast in October, we wrapped on Saturday and everyone


is still hungover from the party. It is incredibly emotive. Yes, the


central idea is communication, autism being a problem, the writer


has made it a reality, as is dementia, those two things are real


for families and families get on with it. They do not break down,


they get stronger because of problems like the ones experienced


by the boy in The A-Word. It is beautiful, I am so glad it is back.


Shortly we're going to meet Kieron Williamson, the 14-year-old


artist from Norfolk who has already become a millionaire by painting


Before that Miranda's been to see a rare view,


one that's so unique it can only be seen once every quarter century.


Built in the nearly 19th-century for 200 years the Regents Canal has


played a big part in linking London to the major industrial cities of


the law. In its heyday the canal was strictly for business use but any


one can enjoy these days and that means keeping the system in tiptop


order. I am on my way to St Pancras Blocked just behind the railway


station by a massive operation is underway. -- lock. Thousands of


gallons of water are currently being pumped out. For the first time in 25


years this part of the canal is being drained, in order to replace


its enormous gates. This is no easy task and each gateway is three and a


half tonnes. It needs the lock to be dry before they can be removed. The


1500 locks to maintain the canal and River trust are kept constantly


busy. Sarah Burns works for the trust. Welcome to St Pancras lockers


you have never seen it before. It is beautiful, all this Victorian


brickwork. This is the original brickwork put him in 1819 when the


lock was built and it has been under water for 200 years, which has acted


as a good preservative. Overtime water destroys the timber on the


gates which is why every 25 years they need replacing. Each is


made-to-measure as doing the initial construction there were no standard


dimensions for canals and locks. They are on that boat and they will


be put in once these have been taken out. Before this happens they must


remove any debris collected over the years. What sort of things do you


normally find? We always find lots of mobile phones and cameras and


things like that but sometimes you find some unusual items. Previous


clean-up operations have included saves, guns and even wartime


explosives so there is no way of knowing what is in here until it is


examined thoroughly. Do we literally just go through and get our hands


dirty and see what we can find? All right. Joined by a team of engineers


we surged to the right to see if they wouldn't find is. Gold, silver


at least! So far all I have recovered is rubbish. Sarah however


seems to be having more luck. The milk bottle or something? Beautiful.


Very thick. United States. United dairies was formed during the First


World War when the several smaller companies merged, supplying bottled


milk to the doorsteps of London. And if you look hard enough there are


other treasures found. Graham Smith is the site manager. What is that? A


British rail button from and to Nick. Polished up that would be


stunning. -- from a tunic. It probably dates back to the 1950s


when British Railways as it was known then had been nationalised


after World War II. An old Victorian coiner. 8099, brilliant. So there's


a bit of treasure out there. Absolutely. Once the lock is cleared


only one thing left to do, attach the new gates. A large crane is used


to remove the old ones and with the new ones into position. -- move the


new ones into position. And when the water level is restored the canal is


back to being operational once more. Despite not uncovering any gold or


silver today we have unearthed some treasures, we had access to this


incredible piece of history which has stood the test of time and I


hope it will be in use for another 200 years to come. A nice bath after


that, I think. Definitely. Before we meet our next guest,


let's remind ourselves of when Carrie Grant


met him back in 2010 when he was just eight years old.


when did you start getting into art. When I was five years old. I like


painting boats, harbours, landscapes, water. How do you do


this so quickly? I know what I'm doing! I do know what that he does


know what he's doing. This is Kieron with his mum, Michelle.


What did you think when you saw yourself just then! We have been


astounded by some of your pieces. You were saying, Matt, cows... Cows


and horses and dogs are incredibly difficult. I enjoy painting myself


that it is just beautiful the way... The light and the tone you've got in


these pictures. That one is beautiful. Thank you. Can you


believe, Christopher, that this one in the middle, Kieron painted


that... When I was five, I think. Five years old. Incredible.


Impressionist. When you look at that which you did when you were five how


do you feel about that work. You've got to give yourself credit at five,


surely. No! OK. Parents will be thinking look at what their


five-year-old draws in school and they love it that this is different.


This has become a family affair. You and your husband are committed to


working with Kieron and with your daughter. How does it work as a


family. It is a full time job. Kieron's artwork dictates family


life. Kieron will decide what he does from day-to-day, we plan our


year around the exhibition, we spend as much time as we can in Cornwall.


Kieron comes first. He has been in the driving seat since he was five.


Coders school fit into this. I'm home-schooled, a retired head


teacher teaches me for four hours every week, and I work on what she


says during the week. Is that a bit of a break. Some days I look forward


to getting stuck into homework! We said on the way that you have made


an incredible amount of money doing this, what happens with all of that


because you are only 14. How does that work, Michelle. We run as a


limited company with a team of solicitors and accountants that


support us. Keith and I can invest Kieron's money into things he wants


to invest in so he has property and his own art collection. With the


money you get to your Art Dubai and other art... It is a big passion.


Which one of these is your favourite. The one in the middle. As


Christopher said, the light on that is beautiful. A beach scene in


Cornwall. Well if, like Kieron and his family,


you have a favourite British beach Yes please, send us photos of


you enjoying your favourite beach - with the family, with your pets,


to the usual address and we'll show some on Wednesday,


when we'll be live from Perranporth Thank you to all our guests


for joining us tonight. The Leftovers is out to watch now


on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV and Kieron's documentary,


Mini Monet Millionaire, Tomorrow Angela and I will be joined


by Sir Mark Rylance and Jack Lowden to talk about their new film,


the hugely anticipated summer


Matt Baker and Alex Jones are joined by actor Christopher Eccleston to talk about his TV series The Leftovers.

Plus Kieron Williamson, the 14-year-old artist from Norfolk who has sold paintings for over £50,000.
