Hello and welcome to The One Show with Matt Baker and Angela Scanlon.

:00:00.:00:22.

And tonight, we are unashamedly celebrating

:00:23.:00:24.

It's all in honour of what's set to be one of the blockbusters

:00:25.:00:28.

A tale of heroics and grit starring the most-incredible cast.

:00:29.:00:32.

And tonight's guests, Jack Lowden and Sir Mark Rylance!

:00:33.:00:42.

Hello. Fans are in tonight and from all over the world, we know that. We

:00:43.:01:04.

have been talking to wonderful audience from Brazil. We are on BBC

:01:05.:01:09.

Two. Konta is through to the semi-finals. Are you a big tennis

:01:10.:01:14.

fan? In a big way. Have you been watching it downstairs? We have. I

:01:15.:01:18.

keep a close eye on Andy's games. It's good both are through. No, Andy

:01:19.:01:23.

has not played yet. He got through yesterday. Further along. Yeah. He

:01:24.:01:27.

is doing all right. He is still in. Fingers crossed.

:01:28.:01:32.

Fingers crossed indeed. Mark, the last time you were on the One Show

:01:33.:01:41.

you hadn't been knighted. That was the first time I was announced. How

:01:42.:01:47.

does it feel, is it sitting well with you? It hasn't gone to your

:01:48.:01:51.

head. You took the Tube here tonight? How does it go to one's

:01:52.:01:55.

head. Does it is appear on one's head. A giant helmet, I guess! You

:01:56.:02:01.

still travel by the Tube, do you get hassled at all? No, I don't get

:02:02.:02:06.

hassled on the Tube, no. Is it breezy? I wouldn't say the Tube is

:02:07.:02:13.

breezy, clas are phobic. I don't get hassled. Jack, what a career you

:02:14.:02:21.

have had. 27 years old now, won an Olivia award when you came out of

:02:22.:02:27.

drama school, Wolf Hall and War Peace. Was there a moment when you

:02:28.:02:31.

thought - this is it, it's happening, life will never be the

:02:32.:02:37.

same again? When I got the lead in a the production of the Boyfriend when

:02:38.:02:43.

I was 18. I was big in that scene, back then. OK. Sometimes it's the

:02:44.:02:50.

little roles where you think, someone is taking notice. That's

:02:51.:02:59.

where I grew up in the Boreders in these amateur companies. That is

:03:00.:03:04.

where I started with my brother, he's a ballet dancer.

:03:05.:03:10.

I followed him and was told I was useless at that. I became a narrator

:03:11.:03:16.

in the ballet shows. I'm not dancing as much as I should be! Mark, with a

:03:17.:03:21.

was the first moment when you thought - yes, this is what I want

:03:22.:03:27.

to do with the rest of my life? I don't know if I thought that at that

:03:28.:03:31.

moment. It was in school. When other kids in school came up to me and

:03:32.:03:35.

said, "you're the actor." I had little idea of who I was. I still

:03:36.:03:41.

don't have much idea. I did an improvisation of a gunfighter in a

:03:42.:03:45.

drama class at school. I remember some other kids saying, "you're the

:03:46.:03:49.

actor." I thought, "is that what I am?" I still remember that. Talking

:03:50.:03:54.

of those small beginnings. Anyone living in a small town Orvilleage

:03:55.:03:57.

will know how big an impact the closure of local services can have.

:03:58.:04:02.

Take pubs, for example. Over the next year, 500 high street banks are

:04:03.:04:06.

expected to shut up shop. The residents of Lymm in Cheshire are

:04:07.:04:11.

having none of it. They are using an age-old law to prevent another bank

:04:12.:04:16.

withdrawal. Here is Nick. The village of Lymm in North Cheshire

:04:17.:04:21.

has 12,000 people, 147 retailers, but only one bank. Today, this

:04:22.:04:28.

branch of Lloyds is closing down. It means for the first time in

:04:29.:04:32.

generations residents will no longer have a local bank to serve the needs

:04:33.:04:36.

of the community. Local people are very unhappy about it. It's part and

:04:37.:04:41.

parcel of our community having a bank. It's dreadful. It's desperate

:04:42.:04:46.

for the This was the village. Old NatWest. That went two years ago.

:04:47.:04:50.

This was the Barclays Bank. This used to be the TSB. To save the last

:04:51.:04:54.

branch on the high street the people of Lymm are taking the fight to one

:04:55.:05:01.

of Britain's biggest banks, leading the charge is parish Cllr, Graham.

:05:02.:05:08.

It's a momentous and sad day? We are a thriving community. It's our last

:05:09.:05:11.

bank. We are fighting to keep it open. We need Lloyds to engage with

:05:12.:05:16.

us. Three months since they announced the closure,

:05:17.:05:17.

five-and-a-half hours before the bank is due to close for good,

:05:18.:05:22.

Lloyds Management agreed to their first faces to face meeting with

:05:23.:05:27.

Graham and the parish council. It's Lymm's last chance to get Lloyds to

:05:28.:05:31.

reverse their decision. How will you play this? We will explain about

:05:32.:05:35.

what Lymm offers to a bank like Lloyds. We need them to understand

:05:36.:05:39.

the importance that they are to the village and what the village can

:05:40.:05:42.

give to them as a business. We want to do something that will help them

:05:43.:05:45.

change their minds we will give them promises and work with them to get

:05:46.:05:49.

more customers for them. Lloyds told us that for security reasons we

:05:50.:05:53.

couldn't film the meeting. They did say they are closing because the

:05:54.:05:58.

branches has 18 regular customers. They define a regular customer who

:05:59.:06:02.

makes one visit a week for 48 weeks of the year. There are unhads of

:06:03.:06:07.

local Lloyds account-holders who use the bank frequently, some of them

:06:08.:06:12.

even switched especially. How does it affect new It affects us

:06:13.:06:16.

personally, we were originally banking with NatWest across the

:06:17.:06:21.

road. They closed. They did. We went to Barclays Bank. They closed. We

:06:22.:06:25.

are with Lloyd, they are closing today. What will you do with your

:06:26.:06:28.

end of the week takings? I will have to get a member of staff or my

:06:29.:06:33.

husband to take it over to alring ham or Warrington because it's an

:06:34.:06:37.

hour-long I don't drive trip. . I wouldn't really risk getting on

:06:38.:06:40.

public transport with all the takings of the shop. I just wouldn't

:06:41.:06:46.

feel safe. For 94-year-old Betty James no bank on her doorstep means

:06:47.:06:50.

a 12 mile round trip to the next nearest branch. Like 40er % of us,

:06:51.:06:55.

she doesn't do online banking. How do you feel about the bank closing?

:06:56.:07:02.

-- 40%. Gutted, really. We've nowhere else. I can't go on buses

:07:03.:07:08.

and things now like I used to. I have to get my daughter to go to

:07:09.:07:16.

Warrington, to the nearest one. It's been 80 minutes since Graham and the

:07:17.:07:21.

parish councillors went for their meeting. Have they convinced Lloyds

:07:22.:07:26.

to keep the branch opening? No interest. Disgraceful. Why have us

:07:27.:07:32.

here on the last day. Why have an engagement process if you aren't

:07:33.:07:34.

going to take any notice of it. Lloyds say they have engaged with

:07:35.:07:39.

customers and local business leaders to explain their decision and

:07:40.:07:43.

offered advice on alternative ways to bank. At 3.30pm the bank closes

:07:44.:07:48.

its doors for the very last time, but this may not mean the end of

:07:49.:07:52.

banking in Lymm. A month ago, Graham managed to get the building

:07:53.:07:56.

officially recognised as an asset for the community, something more

:07:57.:07:59.

commonly associated with saving pubs. Unlike the other branches that

:08:00.:08:05.

have closed, you have put a special order on this Lloyds Bank branch.

:08:06.:08:09.

What have you done? You have some control over is something called an

:08:10.:08:13.

asset of community value. It's a special order that says the use of

:08:14.:08:16.

the building can't change without planning permission. It takes away

:08:17.:08:20.

permitted development rights. Rather than shutting it or turning it into

:08:21.:08:24.

a pub or restaurant, they have to think about issues as a bank. That

:08:25.:08:27.

is what we are aiming for. A lot of people who need a bank. If we can

:08:28.:08:32.

get one of the nationals, I'm sure we could get a groundswell of public

:08:33.:08:37.

opinion behind that and getting people to move to them. A shortage

:08:38.:08:42.

of customers this is something these residents say any new bank wouldn't

:08:43.:08:45.

needed to worry about. I would transfer and I know a lot of people

:08:46.:08:49.

would. Is if another bank came I would switch. I would encourage

:08:50.:08:53.

switch and clients to switch as well. It keeps it obviously in the

:08:54.:08:57.

village. We will carry on with this, definitely. We need someone to come

:08:58.:09:00.

and help us. Come on, any banks out there! Thank you Nick. As always.

:09:01.:09:08.

You are both on to talk about Dunkirk, this epic movie which opens

:09:09.:09:12.

on the 21st July. Mark, we were chatting there. You are the only one

:09:13.:09:19.

amongst us that hasn't seen it yet! It's remarkable, to be honest with

:09:20.:09:25.

you. Robert Mitcham used to say, "they don't pay me to watch the

:09:26.:09:30.

films." It's the premier? I prefer to see it with friends and a real

:09:31.:09:34.

audience. I saw Bridge of Spies on my own. They put a security guard

:09:35.:09:38.

next to you to make sure you don't film it or steal it. I felt a bit

:09:39.:09:43.

comfortable. I prefer to get my friends together and sit-in the

:09:44.:09:48.

crowd and watch it together. In the IMAXX cinema. I did it at 7.00am,

:09:49.:09:53.

quite a way to wake up, let me tell you. It's about an important part of

:09:54.:09:58.

our history. This will be a question to you then, Jack. It hasn't been

:09:59.:10:04.

given the Titanic treatment. How important for you is that it that it

:10:05.:10:08.

hasn't been romantised in anyway? Massively. I think when I saw it the

:10:09.:10:15.

thing I took away was how, sort of, suffocating it is in a way. It's

:10:16.:10:23.

more story about survival and not necessarily about that very

:10:24.:10:28.

anti-kwated Dunkirk spirit, rose tainted thing, it's a community

:10:29.:10:32.

spirit. The film very much starts straightaway in the action. It

:10:33.:10:36.

treats the audience with a bit of intelligence, you know. Presuming

:10:37.:10:40.

you guys will know what the situation was. They don't have to

:10:41.:10:45.

build it all up. It's about brilliant servicemen doing their

:10:46.:10:49.

job. You can kind of feel the fear and you see these are young, young

:10:50.:10:56.

men in a terrifying situation. Yeah. I mean, I play an RAF pilot, you

:10:57.:11:02.

know, amongst the research I did I found out the average age of a pilot

:11:03.:11:06.

was 20 years old, the youngest was 18. It did make you think - what

:11:07.:11:13.

were you doing at 18? For sure. Absolutely. Christopher Nolan

:11:14.:11:18.

directed and was determined it was hyper real. A lot of very young

:11:19.:11:23.

actors, a lot of unknown actors, shot on Dunkirk beach as well. Did

:11:24.:11:27.

that make it... Did it make it easier or more difficult to film

:11:28.:11:32.

like that? We weren't really ever on Dunkirk beach. I was there one day.

:11:33.:11:36.

We did the training on the boat. 300 feet off the beach. That was very

:11:37.:11:40.

extraordinary to be in the place. There's still a lot of sunk boats

:11:41.:11:45.

and sunk other things down beneath the ocean there. You just feel how

:11:46.:11:50.

close to home it is. Very much a film about being very near to home

:11:51.:11:54.

and yet not able to get home. So far away. Longing to be home you could

:11:55.:12:00.

well imagine these extraordinary soldiers who would queue up. They

:12:01.:12:02.

formed queues and then the bombers would come and they would hide. They

:12:03.:12:06.

would get back up inlet same position in the queue.

:12:07.:12:09.

Extraordinary. The very interesting thing about this film is the fact

:12:10.:12:14.

it's three different perspectives, somebody isn't it? A week for those

:12:15.:12:19.

on land. An hour for those up in the air and a day for those on the

:12:20.:12:23.

little ships. Mark, you are the skipper of one of the little ships

:12:24.:12:28.

that went over. We will look at the moment your character takes matters

:12:29.:12:31.

into his own hands and sets off for Dunkirk. Ready on the stern line,

:12:32.:12:37.

George. Aren't you waiting on the Navy.

:12:38.:12:46.

The captain and his son. Thanks for the help, George. Ha are you doing.

:12:47.:12:55.

You do know where we're going? France. Into war, George. I'll be

:12:56.:13:03.

useful, sir. APPLAUSE

:13:04.:13:11.

Wow. Is sends shivers down your spine. Something poignant about that

:13:12.:13:18.

young boy, 17, "I'll be useful" that naivete going in slightly blind

:13:19.:13:21.

never knowing whether he will be back. Talking about the cast, the

:13:22.:13:24.

age of the cast as well is so important and also the fact that

:13:25.:13:28.

they are British and Irish as well. It was... That was one of the things

:13:29.:13:31.

that Christopher Nolan, the problems he had, it wasn't a big American

:13:32.:13:35.

story with all this cast. It took a while to get going? He hasn't put

:13:36.:13:42.

blood and gore into it. Not that blood and gore doesn't happen in

:13:43.:13:48.

films. In some films you see exploding heads and all kinds of

:13:49.:13:51.

things that are hard to watch. He has given it, it's a PG13 rating in

:13:52.:13:56.

America the equivalent here. The young boys who hopefully won't have

:13:57.:14:02.

to fight in wars, in my generation, hasn't had to fight wars where you

:14:03.:14:05.

are forced into it, it's good for young byes to be able to see the

:14:06.:14:12.

chaos -- boys, and the horror of war. If the evacuation hadn't

:14:13.:14:16.

happened. The evacuation of so many of our

:14:17.:14:20.

troops from the beaches of Dunkirk was described as a "miracle"

:14:21.:14:23.

by Winston Churchill. In little over a week,

:14:24.:14:25.

what started as a catastrophic military defeat soon became a moral

:14:26.:14:27.

victory, thanks to a few hundred On the 26th of May 1940, the

:14:28.:14:37.

greatest ever military evacuation was attempted as around 400,000

:14:38.:14:42.

Allied troops were trapped by the advancing German army on the north

:14:43.:14:46.

coast of France around Dunkirk. They were the British expeditionary

:14:47.:14:53.

Force, the BEF, in France and Belgium to fight the Nazi advance.

:14:54.:14:58.

The BEF, Waterboys page they are writing in the annals of the Army.

:14:59.:15:02.

It was all rather marvellous, all part of the adventure. At last,

:15:03.:15:07.

action, something is going to happen and I'm a part of it. The BEF were

:15:08.:15:12.

soon forced to retreat by the power of the German military machine.

:15:13.:15:16.

Heading to Dunkirk, everyone said, that is where you are going, where

:15:17.:15:21.

that big column of smoke is so they were all heading that way. It all

:15:22.:15:27.

went to blazes from thereon. It was more or less, find your own way. We

:15:28.:15:33.

were in full retreat. There was no question of that. With the Allied

:15:34.:15:36.

troops were stranded, an emergency call went out. Every kind of small

:15:37.:15:42.

craft, destroyers, paddle steamers, motorboats... In all, 800 came to

:15:43.:15:47.

the rescue. There began a nine-day evacuation of the Allied troops who

:15:48.:15:53.

were under extreme fire. You've got to remember, your running across the

:15:54.:15:57.

beach and jumping over blokes, dodging and diving because they are

:15:58.:16:01.

coming and machine-gunning you and everything else. There were hundreds

:16:02.:16:05.

and hundreds of Scholl -- soldiers on the sand, ships coming in, trying

:16:06.:16:09.

to pick them up but there were so many commie thought you would never

:16:10.:16:14.

get those people. Over 338,000 soldiers were rescued and for some,

:16:15.:16:20.

that turned defeat into victory. I had no feeling of failure. We fought

:16:21.:16:24.

to the last, with the greatest effect we could bring to bear when

:16:25.:16:28.

you are on your own and that kind of thing. Despite the success of the

:16:29.:16:32.

evacuation and in record numbers rescued, just over 68,000 British

:16:33.:16:38.

troops were killed or captured. I would say it was England's saddest

:16:39.:16:42.

hour as opposed to its greatest. I think it's hard and the resolve of

:16:43.:16:46.

the British people. -- it hardened the resolve.

:16:47.:16:50.

Jack, you touched earlier on a bit of research you had done but how

:16:51.:16:55.

much did you know from personal perspective about what went on

:16:56.:17:01.

Dunkirk? I knew a fair bit. I was very, and still am, into history, at

:17:02.:17:04.

school. But I guess it depends on where you grew up. Where I grew up,

:17:05.:17:11.

we were taught a lot about scarf of low, Upper Orkney and the Navy up

:17:12.:17:16.

there. Was your great uncle in the RAF? He was, Jimmy Ross, he came

:17:17.:17:22.

from Musselburgh. We don't know much about him but he was a Flying

:17:23.:17:29.

Officer in the RAF. No one -- Christopher Nolan has famously not

:17:30.:17:32.

relied on CGI which is normally the go to in a film of this scale, 6000

:17:33.:17:37.

vectors on the beach, described as a military operation in itself but in

:17:38.:17:42.

terms of being up in the Spitfire... Yeah. How did it even work? They

:17:43.:17:48.

just got a pilot and they put him in the back in the fight and put the

:17:49.:17:53.

camera on the wing and we went up. -- and me in the front. We were over

:17:54.:17:59.

the Channel, where it happened. So, Mark, you were doing a similar thing

:18:00.:18:04.

but from a boating perspective. What was it like having all the planes

:18:05.:18:07.

and effectively the Luftwaffe and what have you flying overhead? It

:18:08.:18:13.

was terrifying but something I whizz imagined, I loved the Battle of

:18:14.:18:15.

Britain so much I would watch it every time it was on TV so having

:18:16.:18:18.

the action planes like the Messerschmitt and the Spitfire

:18:19.:18:22.

flying very low over you, it feels like they were not higher than the

:18:23.:18:25.

ceiling and you would see them coming in a long loop towards you,

:18:26.:18:29.

the sound of the old engines roaring over you is very exciting. You

:18:30.:18:34.

looked very comfortable on the little boat. Well, we were after

:18:35.:18:40.

awhile! The first time, we nearly jumped off. Quite vulnerable in

:18:41.:18:44.

terms of the scale of the rest of what was happening around you. But I

:18:45.:18:47.

bet you got very close to that little boat by the finish. I did,

:18:48.:18:50.

yeah. I can imagine. Every great blockbuster

:18:51.:18:53.

needs a great tag line. With Dunkirk, it's simply "the event

:18:54.:18:55.

that shaped our world". Right up there with Alien's "In

:18:56.:18:57.

space, no-one can hear you scream". And my personal favourite, Chicken

:18:58.:19:01.

Run - "Escape or die frying!" And we've got the perfect

:19:02.:19:06.

one for our next film, "the tree that launched

:19:07.:19:08.

a million pies". Apple pie is one of the nation's

:19:09.:19:20.

favourites and at the heart of every good apple pie is a very special

:19:21.:19:31.

Apple. This, the Bramley. When it is raw, it is sharp and bitter, but

:19:32.:19:38.

when cooked, it is sweet and golden. As a chef, I find the Bramley

:19:39.:19:43.

apple's unique cooking flavour unrivalled and it is this taste that

:19:44.:19:46.

has fuelled a multi-million pound industry. But the Bramley is

:19:47.:19:52.

potentially under threat. What most people don't realise is that every

:19:53.:19:58.

single Bramley apple tree comes from a cutting of just one tree. And that

:19:59.:20:04.

tree is starting to die. The parent of every Bramley apple ever eaten

:20:05.:20:07.

lives here in a garden in Nottinghamshire. Scientist Professor

:20:08.:20:13.

Ted Copping has been working to try to save it. This is the original

:20:14.:20:19.

that was planted here over 200 years ago by a small girl called Mary Ann

:20:20.:20:26.

Brailsford who took the pit of an apple, the seed, and planted it. In

:20:27.:20:32.

a genetic fluke, that seed produced a completely new type of Apple, the

:20:33.:20:38.

Bramley. How rare is it for someone to plant a seed and get a new

:20:39.:20:46.

variety? Very rare because this has risen by apple varieties crossing

:20:47.:20:50.

each other and producing a unique embryo which then goes on to grow

:20:51.:20:54.

into the tree. If you want to grow another Bramley tree, the apple's

:20:55.:21:00.

genetics mean you can't just plant a seed, you have to propagate it from

:21:01.:21:05.

a cutting. Sir John Starkey owns the largest Bramley Orchard in

:21:06.:21:07.

Nottinghamshire and is going to show me how it's done. Let's make this

:21:08.:21:11.

into a Bramley apple tree. I'm intrigued. You can make it three out

:21:12.:21:18.

of it. In order to grow, the cutting has to be inserted into the trunk of

:21:19.:21:24.

another variety, a crab apple. Sir John cuts into the grapple trunk and

:21:25.:21:28.

implants the Bramley stem which will grow into a Bramley tree as we know

:21:29.:21:33.

them. So our tree is bottom half crab top half Bramley. But there is

:21:34.:21:39.

one more job I have to do. And that is, I need to christen it The One

:21:40.:21:44.

Show tree. But propagating over generations has led to small genetic

:21:45.:21:49.

variations which affect the taste. The only way to grow an original

:21:50.:21:53.

Bramley is to take a cutting from that one special tree but that

:21:54.:21:59.

original tree is in trouble. It is dying from an incurable honey fungus

:22:00.:22:03.

disease. To save the unique Bramley apple taste, the professor has

:22:04.:22:10.

turned to cloning. How do you clone the tree? We take that into a

:22:11.:22:19.

suitable medium. That a gel? Yes. After 15 years of extensive

:22:20.:22:22.

research, the professor developed a special propagation gel which allows

:22:23.:22:26.

a small cuttings from the original tree to grow their own routes. This

:22:27.:22:32.

tree is, from the bottom of its routes to the tips of its leaves,

:22:33.:22:37.

100% pure bred Bramley and genetically identical to the

:22:38.:22:42.

original tree. Why can't we just use the trees that have been propagated

:22:43.:22:47.

before? They have been grafting for the last 200 years and slowly but

:22:48.:22:50.

surely, there have been subtle genetic changes so what you want to

:22:51.:22:56.

do is to, as it were, turn the clock back so you go back to the original,

:22:57.:23:02.

unblemished largely by any such genetic changes. So this clone we

:23:03.:23:08.

have here is the closest genetic twin to the original Bramley apple

:23:09.:23:13.

tree we saw earlier? Yes, very much so. With the help of cloning

:23:14.:23:18.

technology, the Bramley's future is safe and as chefs can relax, knowing

:23:19.:23:22.

we will have the sweet taste Bramley apples for the for years to come.

:23:23.:23:26.

Wright, gentlemen, the most important question today, cream or

:23:27.:23:28.

custard? Both. Both, please. Just eating the apple pie as well,

:23:29.:23:41.

Jack has polished is off already. Interestingly, no custard or cream

:23:42.:23:47.

on either. No. You said it is like putting ketchup on pizza? It should

:23:48.:23:52.

be a crime. We don't have much time but quickly, out of interest, Mark,

:23:53.:23:57.

you are renowned for being so realistic as far as your acting is

:23:58.:24:01.

concerned and we were talking a bit about learning lines and what have

:24:02.:24:03.

you earlier but from your perspective, do you learn the lines

:24:04.:24:09.

over and over and then go in with a fixed idea of your performance or do

:24:10.:24:14.

you learn them just before you do it and go from there? How does it work

:24:15.:24:19.

for you? I don't know, it depends. The task is really forgetting the

:24:20.:24:22.

lines because who knows what they are going to say next? If you learn

:24:23.:24:26.

them, you have to learn them in a very flexible way because I have to

:24:27.:24:29.

convince you it has never been written down, like now, I'm just

:24:30.:24:35.

making it up on the spot! As you go along. So you always have the

:24:36.:24:38.

feeling inside that you are reacting? I learn more what I need

:24:39.:24:43.

to do, now I need not to get up and walk out of here! And I'm really

:24:44.:24:51.

enjoying it... LAUGHTER Well, we've done everything we can!

:24:52.:24:56.

Are they really laughing? There we are. But thank you. Fascinating, you

:24:57.:25:01.

know where you're going, and you'll get there however. Exactly.

:25:02.:25:04.

London turned rainbow-coloured this weekend for the annual Gay Pride

:25:05.:25:06.

parade, one of many events held across the country to celebrate

:25:07.:25:09.

And this year's more significant than most.

:25:10.:25:11.

It's actually 50 years since homosexuality was partially

:25:12.:25:14.

And DJ Nick Grimshaw's using his mixing skills to chart how

:25:15.:25:21.

This is a story about two people. Ordinary people, going about their

:25:22.:25:40.

lives. Waiting for something to begin. You wait. You'll meet someone

:25:41.:25:48.

who will have your head spinning. And then one day, it did. Eyes met.

:25:49.:26:00.

Hands met. A moment of hesitation. Of uncertainty. Don't you ever worry

:26:01.:26:07.

that we might be doing something wrong? No. And then, they saw each

:26:08.:26:15.

other as they truly worth first time. -- were for the first time.

:26:16.:26:40.

But not everyone understood. What was that? Or approved. Of falling in

:26:41.:26:54.

love that wake of being of that persuasion, of playing for the wrong

:26:55.:27:03.

team. This is the way I want to be. Are you trying to tell me that you

:27:04.:27:09.

and Colin are... On the sexual is? Didn't you know? I certainly didn't,

:27:10.:27:15.

I thought you were just friends. But there were others who did

:27:16.:27:23.

understand, who spoke up. Now listen, you may be a puff butties

:27:24.:27:27.

out so you are going to leave him alone, understand? Back about show

:27:28.:27:32.

me in the Bible anywhere where Jesus Christ refused to sanctify love.

:27:33.:27:38.

Remember, you have to fight for what you want. Sometimes it was hard.

:27:39.:27:46.

I hate the way you make me feel! And sometimes, it felt like the most

:27:47.:27:54.

natural thing in the world. You've given me the strength and the

:27:55.:28:03.

courage to stop hiding. That will do to be going on with. But in the end,

:28:04.:28:09.

Love always wins. Because this is a story about two people, ordinary

:28:10.:28:13.

people in love. Keep an eye out for the BBC's

:28:14.:28:18.
