Hello and welcome to The One Show with Angela Scanlon


Tonight we're joined by two stars of the BBC detective


series Death In Paradise - one is smooth but stern.


The other could occasionally give Inspector Clouseau


The best team chewing on TV, no doubt about it. -- the best TV theme


tune, no doubt about it. Apart from this one, obviously.


Please welcome the stars of Death in Paradise -


A world away from the Caribbean. We have got some great pictures from


across the UK. Not great, if you are struggling to get home, but


youngsters will be at the building snowmen. You have put this weather


down to the fact that debt in Paradise is so successful on TV? --


Death In Paradise. Yes, the BBC have made a rather astute choice in


placing Death In Paradise in the schedules when everyone is a bit


broke after Christmas, a little flat. -- fat. It is part of the


reason it is so popular. Escapism. Escapism, people like to be at home.


I love it. 8 million, nearly up there with Countryfile. LAUGHTER


You'll agree you don't necessarily agree with that, about the weather


being a big draw for the viewer? -- you don't necessarily agree. I think


it is do with the chemistry, the characters, that is what people are


really interested in. To see how we behave with each other. That is very


important. It is on again tonight, everybody. Nine o'clock. We have got


bigger fish to fry, it has been a dramatic day in the studio. We have


had a murder. It is a good job that you are here, we need you to solve


this murder. Lets take you to the


scene of the crime. One drank fast and downed five


drinks in the time it took The diner who drank one died -


while the other survived. So - why did the diner


who only drank one die? OK. Was it a peanut allergy?


LAUGHTER you can get thinking. We are hopeful


he will be able to solve this. If you at home have a suggestion


then send them our way. By now most of us have a good idea


of what fracking is - the controversial method


of extracting gas from subterranean rock -


which campaigners say Alex Riley has been to meet


the protestors setting up camp Just over there is a group of


protesters, opposed to a site across the road which is being prepared for


fracking. I'm not here to discuss the ins and outs of that fracking


project, no. I'm here to find out what it takes to be a protester.


Tina is part of a protest group and they have been at the site all week.


What are you when you are not protesting? I live down the road in


Blackpool and I write copy for websites. I'm concerned grandmother.


What kind of characters do you want to protest? I just love who we have


hired everyday, 13 of us. -- who we have had. Eight of those 13 in their


life had never done anything like this. We are likely to have some


newcomers in the next half-hour. They get a shift change and we get


ours. Why have you decided to come out here? I have been a protest all


my life. I don't mind being out in the cold. It keeps me young,


somehow. Walking in front of lorries all day is a little sense of some


power in my hand, I've got some opportunity to make a statement and


to be noticed for what I believe was I saw you dancing over there. I need


to do that, I used to do a lot of jigging, but I don't do is much now,


I'm stiffening up. I've been doing this five years now. I've been in


camps. I'm able to come out. What does it take to be a protester?


Knowledge, you need to know what you are talking about and you need


determination. Warm gloves and coffee. You have got to keep your


temperament because the moment you rise to aggression is the moment you


lose your argument. OK, yeah. They have told me that no media is


allowed to come in but the protesters have been let to the


fence with the police liaison officers and they will stand in


front of the lorry and make it difficult for it to get in. What you


need to become an activist is believed that what you are doing is


correct. We are a diverse movement and all activists come from


different backgrounds. Why do you need to stand by the side of the


road and possibly get run over? When investors see this, this is every


truck, everyday, for three months on the road, and as an investor, would


you invest? A separate group confront the police further down the


road in front of another lorry. There has been a couple of ways that


people want to go about, the way they to protest for the one wants to


do one way and the other the other way. You can have a more radical


group, but a protester who wants to make a change, that is what we are.


There is a barrier of bodies and the protesters are shouting a feuding is


at them, -- shouting a few things at them, but they have achieved their


object, slowing down the lorries. They have achieved what they set out


to do. It has been interesting meeting the protesters and the fact


that there are two different groups who have different approaches, but


what unites them, they have found a cause which is so important to them


that it doesn't matter they have two sacrifice their home and work lives


because they think what they are doing is making a difference.


Whether or not it will make a difference in the long run is


anybody's guess. How I judge those I stand by side, it is your intent, is


that the same as mine? We are all aiming for the same goal.


Pretty sure we'll be seeing more from that camp


From Lancashire to the Caribbean. Don, you have been in Death In


Paradise since the very beginning. Kris, this is your fourth series. It


has gone very quickly, my son was eight months old when I started and


now he's about to start school. This year is has been a bit different, it


must have been quite difficult. I had a daughter in January last year,


she will be one tomorrow, actually. Happy birthday. Thank you. Elsie?


Yes. They came with me for three years but they could not come this


year because she was three months old. And my son was three years old,


he wanted to be on the beach, but he couldn't. Champagne problems.


Champagne problems! How does that affect the experience for you? I


have much more time at the bar. Not all bad! It is freezing at the


moment, do you wish you were back out there? Much of your recent live


has been spent in the Caribbean. Yes, I quite like the winter


actually. I like it. I like snow. It is lovely to look at for top I don't


want to be in it, but I like looking at it. With the fire lit. Yes, just


through the window. Lovely. And you don't love the sunshine? No, I do


love the sunshine. My skin is quite leathery. Although I don't look it,


but I do brown quite easily. I thought you would have had a similar


colour to me, I'm not exotic and the sunshine doesn't really agree... I


would beg to differ. Now we can have a sense of what is going to happen


tonight. Who is Baptiste? She wrote a novel that we all read at school.


The flame tree. I had no idea it was set on the island. It is about an


image man who marries iris against her will -- enrichment who marries.


She kills herself. How? She jumps from the cliffs. APPLAUSE


Wow. There was a bit of a kiss last week. Bit of a bumbling, he's not


great. But he's not exactly smooth, easy question up I think he's a dark


horse. -- he's not exactly smooth, easy? I think he will be a laugh


Areola, maybe a clumsy love for you. --


I have wondered if it was a slight affectation. If he slightly puts it


on. I haven't worked it out. I hope it's not. That would make him


calculated. I think it is slightly put on. OK. Talking of boss,


Commissioner, let's hope your character can find some romance,


because he has dabbled with various characters. He is a dabbler.


LAUGHTER maybe he will get something more


permanent. That would be very nice. It would be interesting to see him


in that role as a romance and I think he would be very smooth. I


couldn't agree more. The series is coming back to London for a couple


of episodes? We have a double episode, this serious, which is a


lot of fun and it gives us doubled the time to solve a murder -- this


series. We think so. It is based in the Caribbean and you get that, how


does the element of the UK fit? It is about a character who is a fish


out of water, Englishman abroad, and it turns it on its head. I become


the guy who is not the fish out of water and my colleagues are the fish


out of water, so it turns the premise on its head. Level the


playing field. Very much looking forward to tonight's episode. I'm


off to Countryfile, so I will watch that on the iPlayer.


Now, Don - keep an eye out for the title of the poem that


Arthur Smith has dug out in the next film - we think it will be


Here he is going underground to find a hidden river.


If you walk the streets of London for long enough you begin to see


small clues to a time when this was a more watery place. Hundreds of


years ago, there were 20 smaller rivers that fed into the Thames and


today they have all but disappeared and they are known as the lost


rivers of London. I'm here to find out why these rivers disappeared and


how they inspired a marvellous poem called Rising Damp.


The little fervent underground Rivers of London


Effra, Graveney, Falcon, Quaggy, Wandle, Walbrook, Tyburn, Fleet


Whose names are disfigured, Frayed, effaced.


My first stop is the coach and horses in Clerkenwell where I am


meeting Paul, connoisseur of these lost waterways. Why have you brought


me here, are we going for a pint? No, we are going to listen to this


drain in the middle-of-the-road in Clerkenwell. What can you hear? I


can hear the loud sound of flowing water. And it smells a bit, as well.


That is the river fleet that flows from the heights of Hampstead Heath


down to the Thames at Blackfriars Bridge. There were many rivers? All


over London, yes. Different parts, Bermondsey, Camden Town, Bayswater.


Everywhere had a river. They were used for drinking originally,


supplying cattle with water. It's these subterranean rivers that


inspired the modern poet UA Fanthorpe to write her moving poem


Rising Damp. These are the currents


that chiselled the city, That washed the clothes


and turned the mills, Where children drank and salmon swam


And wells were holy. Ursula Askham Fanthorpe only began


writing poetry when she was in her 40s, in 1974. She had left her job


as head of English at Cheltenham ladies college to become a


receptionist at a hospital psychiatric unit. She felt a deep


sympathy with the patients, a sympathy which released a well


poetry within her. One of the things that interested her most was the way


the past is written into the landscape of today. But why did


these rivers of London disappear? It was around about 200 years ago,


these were really covered over, as the population went up they were


getting more and more clogged up with debris and so on. They became


open sewers. The solution was building London's Victorian sewage


tunnels and diverting the rivers into them. This is what I call a


pair of waders! I have been given an opportunity to explore the remains


of the River Fleet with engineering team leader chemical nick Fox. I'm


on some suspenders. What do you do at weekends? So this water is the


River Fleet. Yes, coming down from the Hampstead area, the original


Fleet. Presumably it was once on the service? We think it's pretty much


covers the same line that the Fleet did in 1800. It comes out just under


Blackfriars bridge. We are standing in a river underneath London. UA


Fanthorpe died in 2009, but her words still flow through the


anthologies of English verse. Here is a little poem I wrote for her.


Once we danced and sparkled like gems through the fields to Father


Thames, but now we are dark and deep and brown and buried deep beneath


the ground. We are the bowels of London town will stop.


Thank you, Arthur, wherever you are! The poem Rising Damp, you see. Yes,


I saw, excellent. I am glad it wasn't wasted on you. Miranda is


here. These rivers are not unique to London. , No they are happening all


over the country. We have a picture here Bradford Beck. I come from


Bristol. Residents there are familiar with the fact that we have


the river Avon dominating the landscape, but we also have the


River Frome running through the city centre, and yet we don't see much of


it. We walk over it and drive over it everyday. As a result, the


Environment Agency pledged about five years ago to restore 9500 miles


of rivers around the country, and there are 4600 projects going on or


completed, so a lot is happening. Let's have a word on Rochdale,


because the River Roch, we have a picture from a hundred years ago.


This is what it used to look like. It was important as a transport


system. They transported will from Yorkshire to the mills in Rochdale.


And then the trams came along and they covered over the river to make


way for this new form of transport. Now the river is being uncovered


again, there is a restoration project that has just been finished.


Here is some footage of it. It has been a success because, during the


Boxing Day floods in 2015, the floodwaters didn't get up as far as


the town hall, so that heralds the success of the project. There is


also one in the pipeline in Sheffield, the River Shaef. This is


mostly hidden tunnels under the city and it was covered over during the


building of the railways. There is a section of the storm drain that is


now called the mega trompe which is being used by daredevil weight


borders, in the storm drains. These guys are called Josh and Brad. I


don't think it is open to wake boarding. Yes, not for public


access! To these tend to be more in urban spaces? Know, all around the


country. There is one in the Lake District, a river called Swindale


Beck. A couple of hundred years ago, they straightened the river to get


room for more farmland but they realised that, in doing that, they


increased the river flow and the fish could read in that river


because the river was flowing too fast. -- the fish couldn't breed. So


now they are putting the natural bends back into the river. It looks


much better like that. We have just heard that someone had been spotted


spawning in the river and those eggs should hatch in the spring. Back in


the urban areas, it is going to increase an enormous amount of


wildlife and bring that into the cities. Yes, and the rivers are


getting cleaner, bringing more species back. If there are fish in


the river, you have got the things that eat them, so birds, even otters


have been spotted in Bristol. These projects are great for wildlife.


That was Sheffield. Yes. Lovely. Thank you, lovely stuff. We have


always been known as a nation of shopkeepers and today they come from


all corners of the globe. We said our street barber to cut a world's


worth of hair in one road in Leicester. This is Narborough Road,


a mile long stretch of businesses and family homes just south of the


city centre in Leicester. It looks like a typical high street but it's


not. It's exceptional. That's because a recent survey has shown


that this road has got to be just about the most multicultural street


in the country. But don't take my word for it. The people here want to




LANGUAGES. The people living and working here


were born in 22 different countries. It is what is known as a super


diverse community. One thing that unites them... First, I am saying


hello to the man who runs a body-building and food supplement


shop. His story is typical of the people coming to this country and


his parents arrived in 1973. My parents originate in India, Punjab,


but I was born and bred the UK. Was it predominantly an Indian area?


Yes, but it has changed in the last ten years. 30% of our customers are


from Poland, Estonia, Slovakia, so it has increased a lot. Why do so


many people from different countries come here? It is the Premier League


champions! I forgot about that! And with that? Fantastic, I look ten


years younger. Getting to Britain is one thing and fitting in and they


need a home is another ball game. Cecilia, who recently opened this


boutique store, arrived from Zimbabwe in 2003. Did you like it


here or were you unsure? A little bit I wasn't very short, but I


realised that mostly Africans, using Caribbean 's, Americans, Indians...


It is like everybody has been in Leicester. It makes you kind of like


fit in. OK. Just because you are from somewhere else as well? Yeah.


But not everybody who chose to settle in Britain originates from


the far corners of the globe. This man from Sicily opened his barber 's


shop 40 years ago and his son now works here as well. Any trendy


haircuts? Afro hair can be difficult. Europeans, Middle


Eastern, they landed short on the sides. Do you tend to find that most


people speak English? Yes, and if they don't they normally come in


with somebody who politely says, my friend doesn't speak English, this


is what they want, or they get their phone out with a picture. It makes


me wonder how many of the 22 countries of birth represented here


have had their hair cut here. This morning we have had Indian, Polish,


Italian, Portuguese, Slovakia and Irish. That is already today.


Everybody gets on. It's good. Something else that's good is the


many different kinds of food available, mirroring perfectly the


diversity of this community. This man runs a Kurdish cuisine


restaurant. I am Kurdish. Is there a big Kurdish community? Yes, some


from Iraqi Kurdistan. After the Iraq war is to mock yes. The reasons for


being here are diverse, from war, displacement, economic migration to


trying out a different European city. How do they all get along? I


think there is mutual respect and the students come to make friends


from different backgrounds. It feels like there is a generation of young


people that don't have any prejudice. The younger generation


are hopeful. We are, you are right. OK, you are looking good. Thank you


very much. ... What strikes me about this place is it is massively


diverse, yet it has the greatest sense of community anywhere I have


ever been. Thank you, Michael. We were talking earlier, Don, you were


born in Trinidad and venue moved to my neck of the woods, Newcastle.


What were you expecting and what was the reality when you got there?


Well, I was small and I wasn't expecting much, but I did expect to


arrive in this sort of golden palace. Because that was our


expectation of England. Unfortunately, it didn't quite live


up to that. Newcastle, back in the day, wonderful, don't get me


wrong... Don't knock Newcastle. It's a lovely town and I'm grateful to it


in lots of ways. It was a shock. It is a shock to the system. But I


think, when one is young, you adapt very quickly. So, within the space


of weeks or so it feels, I became a Geordie. I can tell by your accent!


I know! So, from there, you went on to be in Rising Damp, which we all


remember. How was that? In a nutshell. It was what happened. I


don't know what to say. I was at drama school. They were casting it.


There you go. Did it feel ground-breaking at the time? No,


just like a job. It was my first job and I was excited and we didn't know


what it would do, and it turns into this thing that is still going on.


Played with stereotypes and turned them on its head, we love it. We


need to resolve the mystery before we go. Do you want to give out the


figures? Two friends went for dinner and they both ordered iced tea. The


boys have been racking their brains. One drank it really fast and got


through five drinks. The other had one drink. The one who had one drink


guide. All of the drinks were poisoned. Why? Luke thinks that I


was told to pay the bill as he's faking it. Lisa thinks that the


waiter is an alien and poisoned the rich guy so she could steal his


money to buy weapons to take over the world. Diane thinks the real


mystery is how Don looks no older than he did when he was in Rising


Damp. All of that Caribbean sun. We worked as a team. We think that the


lady who had five iced teas must be desperate for the loo. But we think


it's something to do with the ice. It is! The poison was in the eyes


and, because the person who drank the five drinks so quickly, the


poison didn't get into the drink. Thanks to both of you for joining


us. I am back tomorrow with Al Murray hair and Lee Mack there. Good


night. Wood good night one and all! Body of a young woman's


just been found, I know this is a difficult time,


but I need to ask a few questions.
