Hello and welcome to the One Show with the lovely Matt Baker And our
fantastic red head presenter, Angela Scanlon. I think they should do the
whole show? I think so. Later on we will find out how these amacing
animatronics animals have been capturing wildlife footage no-one
has seen before. He has better hair than me. I love him. Whether this
chap can fool members of the public as well. Hello. Look, look. Is it a
robot? , no, it looks like a robot. Wonderful. Plus, we will be
welcoming two TV couples to the sofa, one duo spend their Sunday
nights delivering baby in a hit BBC drama the other delivers daily game
show goals. What happens when their world's collide. Let's meet today's
player. GP, licensed to practice medicine and secret agent... Name as
many properties on the monopoly board that do not contain the word,
"street." That was so convincing. Foods beginning with C? Camping! We
will see how popular it is. How many of our 100 people said "camping"?
That is wrong. That scores the maximum of 100 points. Unlucky guys.
I hope you got some of those at home. Please welcome our Pointless
guests Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman and from Call the
Midwife Stephen McGann and Laura Main. 1,000 episodes of Pointless. I
mean, you guys are back with a new series of Call the Midwife. You are
on guessing roughly the 50 mark. Must be. Can you imagine getting to
1,000? We are hoping to. Would that take us to the present day? That is
a good point. To a future where there is only Dr Turner left. You
wouldn't be in it by then. You killed him off. Are you fans of
quizzes? Is I watch Pointless. The We all do. I didn't think I would be
taking part in a quiz though. I thought I was coming on the One
Show. They have not roped you into this celebrity version yet, have
they? No. You are on. Matt came on. I'm not going to blame anyone. That
was Al. She's actually watching! Have you ever delivered a baby?
Yeah. A couple of times! I have been there when a few have come out, as a
father, I don't go around maternity wards. Got to have a hobby, right?
Your dreams are about to come true. We will be playing some Pointless
quizzes, if you like. The Pointless One Show. Don't talk it down. The
Zero Show. We will mix up the teams, if that is all right. We will do
that later. Now though, with the pressure on NHS
dominating the headlines once again, time to go back to our campaign
to try and save the health Last year I launched a campaign to
try and get you, the public, to bring back the medical equipment you
no longer need to save the NHS millions. Boy, oh, boy, have I been
surprised at what I found out. I discovered that hospitals were
losing money on a daily basis. If we are giving out 25 pairs a day, we
get one be back, we are losing ?240 a day. You emailed saying you wanted
to return equipment but the hospital wouldn't take it. Look at that. It's
a new year. My campaign is gathering a new pace. Plenty of you are not
prepared to take no for an answer. It's starting to make a real
difference. That includes here, this GP surgery in Leeds. They contacted
me to say we'd given them a great idea. Liz, you are practice manager
here, you felt compelled to contact us at the One Show, is that right?
We saw your films. We felt inspired to do something to help. What are
you planning to do? We hope to have an equipment amnesty. Patients who
borrowed anything to the hospitals can return items to us and we will
will make sure it gets back to the right place. We will put up posters,
letters to patients and on the website. I'm here to help. Can we
start? Absolutely. The local NHS Trust recycles equipment, but if
they are a drop off point the surgery can turbo the equipment.
This is why we are doing the campaign. Absolutely. Liz has a room
at the surgery set aside for all that medical equipment that, fingers
crossed, is about to come back. This is brilliant. Wham a space this is.
Why is it best to bring it back to the GPs than to the hospitals?
Convenience. If patients go to hospital they pay for parking or get
on a bus or taxi. Patients who come to a doctor surgery on a regular
basis can drop it in as they go past. The local hospital Trust in
Leeds are keen to get involved with the GP scheme. Janice, head of fizz
Yeo at the hospital, has come down to the surgery today to meet Liz to
kick-start the campaign. How will it work, what is the plan? We will be
talking about where Liz would be best to bring the car to to drop the
equipment You will put off. The stuff in your own car. I thought you
would have a van and stuff, that is better. Do it ourselves. Why are you
doing? If we make a saving in one area we can spend more on something
else. Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust launched their equipment
amnesty in 2012, this is the first time they liaised with a local GP
surgery. Why aren't other hospitals doing the scheme? I don't know. It's
straight-forward to do. Phone calls with different partner organisations
across the city. Would you encourage other hospitals to do it?
Definitely. I've got another plan up my sleeve to help spread the word.
Hello, is that the Yorkshire Evening Post? Yes. I think I've got
something you might be interested in. Word starts to spread at the
surgery. I've crutches at home, never got them back to the hospital,
which I had last year. I didn't know you could. People could reuse them
again. We are sending letters to our patients explaining the new scheme.
Brilliant. We will be saving the NHS thousands, aren't we? Saving
thousands of pounds, yeah. People like to help the NHS. I think that
the patients will get on board and really want to do this, especially
to get the equip am out of their house. You know, watching this in
action strikes me just what a simple but effective idea this is. Could
others do the same? I'm going to find out. I've come to London to put
my plan to the Royal College of GPs, what can they do to help? Professor
Helen Stokes-Lampard is their Chair. Great to meet you. I have been to an
amazing surgery in Leeds they are trying to elect unwanted medical
aids. Couldn't all GPs do this? Some of the problems with all GP
surgeries getting involved they haven't got the space, the staff to
handle this equipment. Actually, where they have got the capacity I
think it's a really great idea. I'm sure there are plenty of surgeries
that would be liked to be involved in such a scheme. It makes sense for
the whole NHS. How do you get the message out there? I will he email
in my blog to GP members about this scheme. I think it's a great idea.
You could email your members on our behalf as well to ask them that? I
will certainly do that for you. That would be brilliant news. Of course,
any GP scheme like the one in Leeds is only going to work if the local
NHS Trust is willing to take the equipment. With help on offer like
this, surely at least some of those that don't will change their mind.
Now Now Kevin is with us, right over there. Practically in the green Just
with you room. . What has the response been like? Brilliant. Ten
items have been dropped off since Friday, a mixture of crutches and
zimmer frames. Crutches cost ?10 we have saved them ?100. It's great
news. We heard there that, what was I going to say - Liz is on crutches.
Lizzie, she snapped her tendon on her ankle there. The good news is
that Lizzie, bless her, she told us it will get to the appropriate
organisation. That is great. We heard there that obviously you can't
drop all your medical aids at every GP. We are asking all GPs, if they
do want to get involved, contact us, we will pop the details on the
websites. No other database allows this to happen. Helen from the Royal
College of GPs is sending herrer mail on Friday. That will go to
50,000s GPs across the UK. Fingers crossed that will be good news. It
will keep building, Kevin. Absolutely.
On the subject of saving money, Dom Littlewood was here last night
and he's got a new show called, Right on the Money.
He is looking to help One Show viewers save thousands.
If you want to take part, all you have to do is email
Our next film features some stunning scenery,
two beautiful wild animals and an animal trainer who has taken
on the challenge of taming them, and she's doing it all on a 10 day
100 mile trek across the Scottish highlands.
I'm Emma Massingale and I train horses in a special way without
reins or restraint. I have two unbroken be highland ponies to join
the horses I have back in Devon. Hey, boys. To build up a
relationship and understanding of these ponies I'm taking them to the
environment they were bred for, a trek across their home of the
Scottish Highlands. This is where our journey starts. I'm on the east
coast of Scotland. You can say the Bay behind me. Ahead of us we have a
100 mile hike that will take us 10 days before arriving at Journey's
End on the west Coates. They are bred to be Hardy and tough, but it
won't be easy. Oh. We will have to tackle bogs, fast flowing water and
mountainous terrain. By the end, I'm hoping that we will have bonded
enough for the ponies to let me ride them. Come on then, boys, let's go.
As we don't know each other yet, I have to use a lead to stop them
wandering off, which is something they're not used to. Extremely hard
work. Hector is much braver. Hughie is quite stubborn. Come on, Hughie.
Having him pull on the rope all the time make it double the effort.
Although the going is tough, we need to cover at least 10 miles a day. We
have come all the way down from the mownans and it's been an incredibly
hard day. I'm absolutely shattered. I think the ponies are, too. I think
I will try and find camp along the river somewhere tonight. As we are
building trust, the ponies need to be tethered to stop them running
away. Are you all right? Good boys. Unlike us, horses only need a couple
of hours sleep a day by 4.00am the next morning, the boys are ready to
leave the camp. I have this fetching hat to keep the midges at bay.
Ponies have nature on their side. They have a thick coat. Their skin
is thicker than any other pony I've ever experienced. As we continue on
our journey, leading these ponies don't get any easier. Oh oh. Horses
are hrd animals. Hector and Hugh have formed a strong bond. At the
moment, two is company, three is a crowd. I need to make some changes
so I'm not left out. So my plan for today is to try and pal up with
Hector. We will pick the nicest grass, offer him the best places to
stop and really try and build on my relationship with him, as it seems
to be we get on a little bit better than with Hughie. As for Hughie, I'm
taking a gamble and letting him off the lead and hoping as he sees me
and Hector having a good time he will want to stick with us. OK, it's
going quite well. Hughie is starting to know what his name is when I call
it he comes, which is good. Come on, Hughie, he is not wanting to do his
own thing too much. We have to cross a few rivers. Trying to encourage
the horses across unfamiliar conditions is a real challenge -
well, for some of us anyway. Shoot! Yes, I'm very wet! I decide to make
camp early to get warm and dry before the sunsets and the
temperature drops. As my relationship is blossoming with
Hector, I feel confident to let him off the lead as well. It's really
nice to see them loose. We've had a really good day today, perfect
ending. I spoke too soon. As darkness falls the weather takes a
turn for the worse and Hector and Hughie disappear. There is a bad
storm come in and frightened the ponies, they've both run off. I
can't find them anywhere. Hector, Hughie! If they've bolted, the
chances of finding them will be hard and a massive setback for us all.
Part two of that coming up later. Horses there, llamas, are they had
to control? Yes! I've got five. We thought we were only going to have
four and then a little baby appeared, I don't know how that
happened. It happens. I like llamas, not humans but I like llamas. Can
you lead them around? LAUGHTER Can you write one? They are very
lovely and you want to reach out and Pat and scratched them. They are
innately terrified, they just don't like humans at all, I'm afraid and
very strong. They sound great! Brilliant guarding animals. Box.
They keep foxes away, farmers have them for lambing. Let's get onto
Pointless. 1000 episodes. You have been filming seven years and we kind
of got onto conversation before we got on air, how it works during the
day. How many things our youth filming? Four a day. It works well,
when you get into the rhythm of it. The first one is fun, you turn up
and there's a lot of energy. The second one is nice because your
branch after it. The fourth one is nice because you're going home
afterwards. You don't want to be on the third one! Whenever I watch an
episode and think, they look a bit tired I think, that's episode three.
Do you get a bit crabby with the contestants? Never! Seriously, we
haven't. Sometimes we talk about them afterwards, but very rarely. We
usually say they were lovely. Delightful! For this 1000th episode
you've switched roles? We have. We wondered what to do and we thought
it would be nice to do something special. We were going to have Rich
carried by 1000 dogs. Or a llama! We thought we'd change places. We
thought it would be a tree if you've watched the show from the beginning
and it was funny, wasn't it? It was. Djibouti was a French territory
until 1977. As you were...! LAUGHTER I think we're both appreciating how
hard the other person works. Recently you have become a Pointless
question or answer? It's so funny, when we have friends who are
sometimes answers on the show we say you are on and you are Pointless
answer. Which means nobody knows them! I was a Pointless answer. The
question came up and took us by surprise, the top 50 selling albums
of 2015. Someone said, I don't know, I'm just going to say Alexander
Armstrong. Alex said, that's so sweet of you to say so. And he found
he was one of the top 50 selling albums of 2015. APPLAUSE
Your face is so lovely. Let's just remind ourselves of your wonderful
dulcet tones. Here we go. # I believe in a thing called love
# There's a chance we can make it now
# I believe in a thing called love #.
APPLAUSE Look at that! A slight change from
Fields of Gold. I liked that. I had my six-pack painted onto my costume.
I might do that more often as well. It was great fun. I think it is this
Friday at Sun, with Jimmy Carr. Not going to tell you what happens. We
are looking forward to the rock album! If you didn't know, Pointless
is on weekdays at 5:15pm. The 1000th episode is on Monday, but you don't
have to wait that long, because we are going to play it now.
So we need to mix up the teams a bit so -
if Richard and Laura you swap over please.
Laura and Stephen, we will just remind you of the rules. Just like
in the real Pointless we are not just looking for correct answers but
the most obscure answers, based on those given to us by 100 people.
Let's go through again, I get it! The first category we have is titles
of Pointless in other countries. We have five names of international
editions of pointless. If only one of the people worked for end of
Mull. Which country relates to which one? You can choose from...
So, team won. One of those is... You have two guests which country that
answer relates to. Choose a title and then try and team it with a
country of your choice. There is an obvious one there... Go for it. Team
won. I wouldn't. You can say one, two, three, four or five. The second
one down, I think that sounds fun apart from anything else. That's a
show I'd watch! LAUGHTER You know what I'm saying. I think
that comes from... I'm thinking that might be the Serbian version of the
show. You are going to say Serbia? I was just talking to Stephen and he
wanted to go for the same one because he doesn't think it is
Serbia. So you're going for number two, what country? Whisper it to me
again? Croatia, he's saying. So you're going for the second one
also. Let's find out if you are right, and most importantly which is
the most obscure. Team won, you said the second one and you said Serbia.
Is it correct? How many people said it? Oooh! I'm sorry. That is a
shame. Team number two, you chose the same answer, and you said
Croatia. Let's see. And if so, how many people said it. Oooh! This is
shameful, frankly. It was Czechoslovakia. The answers for you
at home if you are playing along. France, Czech Republic, Germany,
Croatia and Poland. That is like Vladimir Putin's to-do list.
LAUGHTER Interestingly Croatia's title is no
one thought of that. Now, how people find K White Way has been behind
many emotional reunions here on the One Show but this time she's
attempting to bring together to people who had met before. Their
only connection and object found in a second-hand store. Here is
Adebanji to tell us more. The walls of East London are dripping with
modern artistic energy. But I'm here to discover a different part of its
art heritage dating back to the First World War. That's a good one.
This book of pictures and poems was created by soldiers and refugees
during World War I, as a gift from a nurse who was looking after them in
a hospital in London. 40 years ago the book turned up in a second-hand
shop owned by Iris Simons. How come you didn't sell this book? I just
couldn't bring myself to sell it. It was just very special. I did feel
its rightful places with her family. What do we know about this nurse?
Her name is Violet Fountain. She was obviously very caring. Some of these
soldiers are French, some are Belgian. They just loved her. I'm
keen to try out this simple and elegant style for myself. If you
could, would you like to see a picture of her? Absolutely. Iris
asked us to help her find out more about Violet Fountain. So we called
in the people finding expert, Kat Whiteaway. The book only tells is
Violet's name, but luckily that name is quite unusual. There are only
seven people of that name on the 1911 census, and one of those was
born in London. After more research we discovered this person lived
within walking distance of an east London workhouse, which was
converted into a hospital for the wounded of World War I. It was
called St George 's in the east and matches the hospital named in the
book. I found a will for Violet. The will name is not only Violet's fun
but her two grandsons. When I looked at the electoral registers I spotted
one person of the right name. He confirmed Violet was his
grandmother. That grandson is Mark. We've brought him to St Peter's
church to meet Iris are just a stone's throw from where his mother
worked. This is the church she would have attended. Oh, it's beautiful.
We are following in her footsteps here. This is just where she would
have been. I can feel her. Yeah. And we have brought you... Violet's
grandson, who I know you would really love to meet. So there he is.
My goodness! Did you know your grandmother? No, no I didn't. She's
here. I know she would want you to have that. Now, at last, Violet's
book is back with her family. I've never seen anything like it. I'm
struggling not to be in tears. I had no idea, no idea that she was a
nurse. I knew nothing about her at all, so to have this, it means so
much. I'm so pleased. They must have really liked her to go to the effort
to do this. And when you read some of the sentiment, you'll realise how
much they cared for her and what a brilliant nurse she must have been.
After 40 years I risk now finally see what Violet looked like. That's
me, that's my grandmother. That must have been 1960. That is Violet.
Well... I never thought I'd see her. My goodness... I'm lost for words.
I've got one last surprise for Mark and Iris. It is a portrait I
sketched of Iris. All you need to do is insert that into the book and it
completes the whole of this journey. Thank you so much, everybody. It
feels great to see this priceless book return to the family where it
belongs. And to know it will be cherished by generations to come.
APPLAUSE What a gorgeous film. We have Mark
and Iris in the studio with us. You were watching at the first time.
It's wonderful, right? It is. Having shown the book to your family, what
do they think of the whole thing? It's so good to be able to connect
grandmother to my children, because we never knew who she was and now
we've got something that has us linked and it's really good.
Beautiful. And other strange coincidences have been uncovered
since you met? They certainly have. It turns out we actually live within
six miles of each other. And also on the 1939 register, which the
government did, Violet herself was actually living in Taunton, where I
live. Just a stone's throw away. Amazing. And I travelled down that
road every day. And added to this, Mark's wife is a schoolteacher and
it turns out she actually taught my grandson. Absolutely wonderful. Full
circle. That is brilliant. Thank you so much for coming in and sharing
your story. I will give you a little hug. Just extraordinary. From
wonderful nurses to midwives, let's talk about Call the Midwife, back on
Sunday evening, documenting some important social changes throughout
our history. We're up to 1962. What does that mean for your characters?
For the Turners, one of the great things about 1962, this series, the
Turners begin to look a little more 60s, without giving too much away.
Wow. This 60s begins to infuse into the Turners. Not miniskirts. Not
yet, we haven't got the Beatles, but it's there, the changes you've seen.
It's so clever, they move it forward so slowly that the changes become
very organic. And with Patrick and Shelagh, they have some sadness from
the previous year, when the formidable hide -- for Micah Hyde
outbreak came out. They have a bit of building up to do, getting back
on the bike and rediscovering what is they love about the medicine they
do and the care they give. There's part of that and frankly the changes
are welcome. It's like a new piece of sunlight coming through their
lives. Laura, is your character enjoying a husband with this 60s
vibe? Yeah. I think this year has been an
interesting year. They went to South Africa. Chris special. That was
quite an experience for them both, wasn't it? The nightie in South
Africa. A suit on the beach as well. Lots of There is big glamour.
Changes afoot at Nonnatus House with Jenny Agutter being replaced as the
Superior. The new Superior is rubbing people up the right way. I'm
sorry, Sister Ursula the half-hour timings has worked well enough. Is
well enough good enough? Before the Cottage Hospital was closed there
was accusations of inefficiency. I wouldn't like the clinic to be
subject to complaint. Most mothers don't mind if things run on. They
can attend talks and catch up with their friends over tea and biscuits.
Biscuits will be for fainters only. One of my favourite lines ever is,
biscuits are for fainters only. Policy we should implement around
here. How has it been to feel like you are being under pressure by that
doom nearing character? It's difficult for everybody because we
all admire and respect Sister played by Jenny Agutter. It ruffles
feathers. It's difficult. You are protective of her being cast aside
when you return from Cape Town after an amazing journey? She is normally
the one supporting all of us. Suddenly, she has a little bit of
difficulty in her life. Like you got to know everybody over the years.
You got to know and understand the structure and the order in the
house. Someone comes in. Dame Harriet Walter though, how wonderful
is that? She is the most wonderful, brilliant woman. Everyone adored
working with her. Call the Midwife starts a week on Sunday. You have a
documentary coming out. Yes. The real subjects covered in the drama.
That is right. That helped you from an actor's perspective? It's been
amazing. One of the funny things for me, without going into detail, my
academic background is science communication, the way things like
medical history, the social side of science and medicine mixes with the
public, the way they get it through, it might be television, might be
documentaries and the way they feel about it. How the two sides come
together. I' been interested in this type of thing. When the opportunity
to play Dr Turner has been amazing for me because of that. When they
came along and said - we would like to do a documentary that looks, take
as journey through those real stories of real people out there who
were there at this time, would you be interested? Of course, I bit
their hand off. I loved it. While I was filming the series I was running
up-and-down the country doing this. It was a labour of love for me. We
are joined in the audience by somebody you know well. She is in
the documentary. This is her birth certificate. Let me show you this
before I run over. 5th July 1948. Aneira was the first baby born in
the NHS. Let's have a round of applause. Good evening to all our
midwives. What did your mum tell you about your birth being the first
baby born in the NHS? As a child I remember her introducing me as my
national health baby. Being a child I didn't understand the significance
of the national health. Yeah. As I started growing up I was curious. I
asked her so many questions. She said she was about to give birth to
me and on midnight on 4th July I was baby number seven. It was hold on,
hold on. The NHS hadn't started yet - wait until tomorrow! It was coming
up to midnight. She held Forlan one minute to make sure it was a Welsh
baby born. I was born at that time. My brother reckoned they pushed me
back in for one minute! Your beautiful name then. Where does that
come from? Is that connected? Yes. Because the doctor and nurses asked
my mother could they name me. She said, "why?" It was the vision of
creating the National Health Act by Areurin Bevan a Labour MP at the
time. It was a great day for Great Britain. That is how the name came
about. Lovely to meet you. It really is. I wished I had asked her what
she would have named me. She lived until she was 95. I never asked her.
It was a wonderful thing at the time she left us a legacy. We have to
preserve, protect it and keep it safe at all costs. Wonderful work
that you all do. Thank you so much. A little round of applause for that.
APPLAUSE You can see the document Call the
Midwife: The Casebook on Sunday BBC One 5.0 # 5pm. The new series of
Call the Midwife starts Sunday 22nd January on BBC One.
Our wildlife team are always on the look out for animal
exclusives to film and George has heard of some incredible
new behaviours being displayed at a local reserve.
We will, I've come to this nature reserve because I've heard about the
sighting of some very rare primate activity. Rangers have reported an
orang-utan has been exhibiting some highly unusual and sophisticated
tool use behaviour. I'm really hoping that our camera team will be
the first to capture it. UNNing I think I can hear something down
there. Fingers crossed. That is incredible. I've never seen anything
like that. It's left handed, like me. I'm going to let you into a
secret. It's actually a robot - sorry! This orang-utan robot is just
one of the stars of the fourth coming BBC series Spy in the Wild.
Each life-like spy robot has a tiny camera built into its eye to capture
unique behaviour from the real animals that encounter it. Now,
Matt, you are one of the operate objects of these incredible spy
cameras. What's the point of them? Well, the point was to get these spy
creatures into the animal world to plunge the viewer into their world
and reveal astonishing behaviours and show how like us they really
are. Making them move in a believable way, that must be the
sort of hardest part? Absolutely. They had to look really, realistic.
When we went to film the orang-utans we had to go that little bit
further. We mimics their facial expresses. Baring the teeth was
threatening we didn't want to do that. We had to move, blink the
eyes, as you can see. Was she accepted by the wild orang-utans?
Yes, absolutely. They kind of knew that it wasn't real, but they needed
to get that closer look. I often think it's like when we go to Mad
Tam actual odds, you know they are not real. You want to take a closer
look to make sure for yourself. Heat let's do just that. We thought we
would like to put this technology to the test with a special One Show
challenge here at this zoo. Can zoo visitors tell the difference between
a robotic orang-utan and the real deal? This is the zoo's orang-utan
island, home to Marley and her baby. It's got to be the perfect setting
to test our robot. Although, the real orang-utans don't seem that all
sure about their visitor. We've got our robotic orang-utan set up on the
island, the guys controlling it are just up there. It takes two of them
to work all the robots facial muscles. The camera is over there.
We have to wait and see what the members of the public make of it. I
love orang-utans. Is that one real? Yeah. No.
Hello, hello. No, it's not. Is it not? No. Is it real? Definitely. His
mouth is moving. It's not. Really? Is no. Look at. That Oh, my God. Oh,
heck. Look, look. Is it a robot? No, it looks like a robot. What do you
think? Oh, you scared me. He looks kind of like a robot. Yes, it is a
robot. I knew it! It's a robot. Is it? Yeah. Well, that's really
interesting. When it's not moving it's not very believable. When it
moves its eyes and its lips and its head, people get drawn in very, very
easily. Standing here, watching it, it's pretty impressive. Let us talk
more about this new series, Spy in the Wild. We have Matt Gordon the
series producer in from the film and John donor the creator of these
wonderful filming techniques. Did you expect that reaction from the
zoo? Everyone was not at least sure it wasn't real or not. It was a
great deal. John, let us have a word on the cast here. Where do you want
to start? Where have they been in the world? That has been to Botswana
and meeting wild dogs. It's a wild dog puppy. It has a camera in its
eye. It does this play bow, it makes the right signals to be accepted by
the pack. The meerkat doesn't need any introduction, really. He ended
up being one of the meerkat baby-sitters. Ultimate acceptance.
We have seen him. The camera is in the right eye here. That is what we
try and do. There we go. You can see my hand there. You get eye-contact.
You get the feeling you are part of the family and connecting with them.
That is what they tend to do. We decided not to make a big elephant,
transportation costs. He lives among elephants. He is a egret. He is not
a threat. None of the animals are designed to be threats. They are
always accepted. Down here, he went into the rainforest. He can walk
around. You can meet others. He looked at jungle medicines. Right on
the end there is a spy tortoise. He was a star, especially in the first
show, he met all kind of creatures including chimpanzees. The animals
they are interacting with are working with their senses. Is the
idea to get a different angle as far as the camera work is concerned or
to see how creatures go up to something if they are freaked out by
it? They are doing so many different things. That is interesting. We have
lots of different spy cameras that aren't animal throngics. These ones
are extraordinary because the animals really relate to them
because they look like them. They are curious and you get this
incredible reaction when they first meet them they readily accept them
because they look like them, but they are not a threat. That's what
is wonderful about this. We have footage of langur monkeys in India.
Talk us through what is happening. You didn't expect this, did you? Not
at all. We had been filming for several dayses the spy monkey had
been accepted into the group. Near the end of the shoot this langur
monkey came over and picked it up and then accident Ali dropped it. At
that moment, because they saw it was motionless they thought it was
lifeless. So they all came round and gathered. As you can see they
groomed it, kissed it -- accidentally. The scientists said
when they lose their young naturally they come round and grieve and touch
it. This is what they do. They then started to hug each other. It was at
that moment we noticed we captured something really magical. You layer
it with music, narrative as well to go along with this. The programmes
are themed. You have one on love as well where
the prairie dogs are featured as well. I mean, how confident are you
that what they are going through and what they are feeling are the same
kind of complex e-Megses that we do whether or not they feel them in the
same way - emotions? The series is trying to make people look at
animals differently, as scientists are. Nowadays the intense of working
in the field with these animals, you can't pretend there is no connection
between humans and animals. We have looking at the kind of
behaviour that we would relate to. It shows our closeness to other
animal life. We are animals. They are animals. There's obviously a
connection between us. We are highlighting those areas. Yeah. We
will show you footage of a baby crocodile. Sure. You get the POV of
what it's like inside a crocodile's mouth here. We We had spy
hatchlings. This is the basis of a mother's love. Starting those years
ago with crocodile and reptilian love. It's the strongest form we
think - we are special. You go back that far, they are still looking
after and tending their young. Listen, thank you both for coming
in. Thanks to all of the cast. We throughly enjoyed your company. Spy
in the Wild starts tomorrow night, 8.00pm, BBC One.
Wonderful, I saw them all with the remote controls earlier on. I would
like to see that version of robot wars.
OK, it's time now for our second round of One Show Pointless
Five different 'spy' animals are hiding in some famous films.
All you need to do is name the film, and, of course, find
You know the drill, you are back in your teens. This orangutan loves to
sing, but which film is this? Don't say anything yet. Let's go back to
B. It's harder than it looks! Which film is this sloth taking part in.
What about the film this meerkat is taking part in? Let's take a look at
this acrobatic crocodile. That's my favourite! And which film is the
baby monkey sitting in? So, what are you going to go for,
team won? I think C is the one I'm struggling with. Unfortunately it is
asked to go first, because you went first last time! I think you will
find we are in charge of this game. We quickly need another answer. Can
I just confirm, are you going with the meerkat and seven year itch?
Yes, we are. We will go for E, Forrest Gump. Let's see if you are
right and more importantly which is the most obscure. Team won, the
meerkat and seven year itch. Is it correct? It is correct, anyway. How
many people... APPLAUSE Very good. Team two, you went for E,
monkey and Forrest Gump. Is it correct and if so, how many people
said it? It is correct. Oooh! Sorry. As the guy who makes the show, it's
a poor performance. He makes it as well. If you want to know the
answers at home, there you are. Dirty dancing was the crocodile. A
two to one reptile, fabulous! Back to Emma's epic journey now
to see whether she can gain I'm Emma Massingale and I'm about
halfway through my challenge of walking and training two unbroken
highland ponies hector and tempt one Mac in Scotland. Using my gentle
techniques. I hope by the end of my journey they will allow me to write
them without rains all restraints. Last night I set them loose for the
first time, but then a storm hit and I lost them. I can't find them
anywhere, I'm going to have to go and get some shelter myself and try
to find them at first light. But my way back to the camp... I just found
the ponies. Thank goodness for that. Even an experienced horse would find
this rather scary, so the fact my boys have stayed rather close to the
camp makes me feel they've accepted me their herd.
We'll stick together, boys. After another early start, it's not long
until we hit our first obstacle of the day. Peat bogs dominate the
Highlands and we have no choice but to go through them. With their short
and strong legs, Highland ponies have naturally adapted to dealing
with this landscape but Hughie and Hector have never been through a
blog before, so it's taking a bit of getting used to. Once we are on more
solid land we come across a stone hut. These offer Shelford to --
shelter to weary travellers like us. I've never been as thrilled to see a
roof in all my days. No midges, ticks, wind or rain. And also the
perfect place to step up my training with my more agreeable pony, Hector.
What I don't want Hector to be is frightened of me getting on him for
the first time. I'm going to reprogram him a bit by teaching him
that when he is frightened for some -- of something, best to keep his
feet still. I will shake something next him and only remove it when he
doesn't try to move away. That's a good boy. After a while Hector
learns to standstill, which I need him to do when I try to get on his
back. This is a dangerous but special moment, as it's the first
time he's ever been ridden. Good boy. Stand still.
After a little more coaxing... Good boy, good boy. Walk on, walk
on. Hector is coming along really well and I feel really confident on
him. It's a case of now giving him enough time to build his experience
and confidence. As for Hughie, I might have to admit defeat. Hughie
I'm leaving a little bit, I'm just going to focus on Hector now.
Hughie's personality is a bit odd, I'm not quite sure what's going on
with him. Ever since we started, he's been
very difficult and I don't think he's ready for me to ride. So for
the next couple of days I focus on riding Hector, but on our last day
we have one final challenge to overcome. I'm hoping he'll let me
ride him across this wide river without him bolting or throwing me
off. Ride on. Good boy. It's amazing how Hector has accepted
me riding him in such a short time. A few days ago I could never have
done this. Yes! Good boy.
Safely on dry land, it's not long before our end goal is in sight.
Finally, after 100 miles in ten gruelling days we reached the West
Coast of Scotland. We made it, boys. We made it.
Although there is more work to be done with Hughie I'm very confident
to introduce my new ponies to my other horses when we get back to
Devon. Wow, that was so much harder than I
thought it was ever going to be. I started off thinking it was going to
be about training horses aren't going across Scotland, but this
journey turned out to be more about the relationship you can build with
a horse over time, and the fact that each day they got a little closer to
me, and each day they seemed to want to stay with me more and more was
really special. It's been epic! That's right up my street. Love it,
it looks idyllic. Steven is not the only one who has
been doing documentaries. You have been flying around and in the
tunnels of Italy. Yes, underneath Italy. Tonight we are in Venice. 9pm
tonight. Not ideal, going through tunnels as a claustrophobic man.
Going under Naples... Most of the tunnels under the labels were huge
but we went down a tiny little crevice, about 200 metres into the
side of the hill. It's fine, we were all doing it together, you can see
the footage now. There's nothing like having a camera on you to make
you bold. We were all doing it together. After about 40 minutes I
suddenly thought, actually, I think I can do about five more minutes of
this and then that's it. Legs shaking or palpitations? Three
others on the crew said, me as well. We all ran. We said... The roof of
the tunnel came down as well, so you were kind of going sideways and
crouching. Welcome to my world! LAUGHTER
just a day on the tube for Richard. We have the midwives in, so before
we go, have you got any questions for the cast of Call the Midwife?
Were you given any training before? We had quite intensive rehearsals,
didn't we? We did. We had Terry Coates, who inspired the memoirs and
is with us all the way through, still with a sunset. All of our
training is her. She shouted at me, because I'm clueless. I never
remember anything to stop cheese with having to go back, even taking
a pulse. I just have to look like a doctor but I'm quite terrible in
real life. Is it right you left a baby on a table after a tape and
walked away? Yes! The best way to describe what I'm actually like...
I'm looking, I'm looking the part, it's beautiful. I'm really soppy, I
love babies. But I'm doing this scene, I intend as Doctor Turner. I
turn around and leave the baby. Everyone can see the baby gently
starts to roll down. All I heard was, Stephen! I wasn't even in that.
It was the first thing I was told in the make up chair. It's true. On
that bombshell, moving onto our final round of One Show Pointless
for Richard, we are going to let you go first.
Is it 1-1? 1-0. No, you are both useless on that first round.
This one is baby related. Midwife team-mates might have a slight
advantage. Babies and their celebrity parents. We will show the
names of five children of celebrities and you just have to
name one of their parents, and as usual, we are looking for the most
obscure answers. Here we go, you can choose from...
Let's go for team that two this time. We will go for blue IV and
Beyonce. Is that the most of this cure? -- obscure. The bottom two we
know... I think we have to take a punt. I think we have do say...
Shall we go River Rocket? No, Moroccan, Johnny Depp, something
like that? Take a punt on that? Sorry, you need an answer, there is
a schedule! Let's go with River Rocket and Johnny Depp. River Rocket
and Johnny Depp sounds good. Is it the right answer? Team won, your
answer first, you said River Rocket and Johnny Depp, is it right and if
so, how many people? No, no, I'm sorry. Team two, Richard
and Stephen, you said Blue Ivy and Beyonce. Is it correct and how many
people said it? Yes! An honourable draw. APPLAUSE
Well done. It's a draw, well done! The good news is neither of you get
a prize. Jamie Oliver and River Rocket, love is a herb. How are you
enjoying life, Richard,? Lovely, Sue Perkins, a panel show. They never
tell us anything that will happen beforehand. All made up on the spot.
We're all trying to make each other laugh. It's such a treat, Sue and
Josh are brilliant. Monday night on BBC Two at ten o'clock. I very much
enjoyed the last episode. A huge thank you to
Richard and Xander. APPLAUSE
Abu 1000th Pointless episode. Thanks also to Stephen and Laura -
Stephen's documentary - Call the Midwife: The Casebook -
is on Sunday on BBC One at 5.05. See you tomorrow when Kris Marshall
and Don Warrington from Death in Paradise will be here -
looking forward to that. Fake news. Donald Trump denies that
is compromising material about him. The allegations relate to his
election campaign and
