Welcome to Cornwall and The One Show with a difference. Forgeture foreign

:00:11.:00:18.

holidays. We are celebrating the people who heap us happy and safe at

:00:19.:00:24.

the seaside. We have brought The One Show to the beach! Hoy!

:00:25.:00:37.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Welcome to The One Show on the beach. Of course

:00:38.:00:49.

tonight we are celebrating Britain's beaches and where better to

:00:50.:00:54.

celebrate that one of our finest, it is Perranporth, just look at the

:00:55.:01:00.

evening light. It is a delight. It is our best day out so far. We have

:01:01.:01:07.

based ourselves at this fabulous beach bar called the Watering hole.

:01:08.:01:18.

We have a barbecue with David Deadman and we have a beach band in

:01:19.:01:29.

the form of The Kooks. I love her, because she moves in her own way. Oh

:01:30.:01:40.

I love her because she moves in her own way. # Oh, she came to my show #

:01:41.:01:57.

Just a teaser, they're going to be playing live Naive later. Because we

:01:58.:02:00.

are in Cornwall, there was one man that we just had to invite. So he

:02:01.:02:06.

has been filming up the road for the last 13 years in Doc Martin, but I

:02:07.:02:11.

mean he is basically a local. Yes, but he is not that at home on the

:02:12.:02:20.

beach. Sit down, Martin. Leave the blanket alone. I just want to get

:02:21.:02:27.

the sand off. It is a beech. Yes, I would like to be comfortable too. So

:02:28.:02:34.

Scottish egg? Haven't you got any healthy food? No, it is a picnic,

:02:35.:02:43.

just try to relax. Ow! It's Martin Clunes. Of course it is. Martin!

:02:44.:02:51.

Thank you. Hello there. Martin. Are you all right? Martin, what do you

:02:52.:02:59.

make of this? Hello, Perranporth! Lovely. What a nice crowd. Have they

:03:00.:03:06.

paid? We have to say a special thank you for staying, because you haven't

:03:07.:03:11.

heard the news about Martin's puppies. Hang on. I mean that in a

:03:12.:03:18.

nice way. I was half way with my wife and we got the call the cocker,

:03:19.:03:26.

Heidi, our cocker spaniel has gone into labour. So I had to go and get

:03:27.:03:30.

another car. Very exciting. Do you need some parents for the new

:03:31.:03:35.

puppies? We might. We have a few... We will chat later. Oh! See. OK.

:03:36.:03:44.

Nice little cocker. Back to beaches, do you have a favourite? I'm a big

:03:45.:03:51.

fan of one further up the coast. It is my first time here. It is a

:03:52.:03:57.

beauty. We have had a great day. The best day of The One Show for ages.

:03:58.:04:06.

We haven't played frisbee for a why. I was hopeless, then I had to have a

:04:07.:04:11.

lie down. A bit of tennis. It is like Wimbledon. The message has to

:04:12.:04:19.

be... That wasn't your sand castle. No, but you have got to get down to

:04:20.:04:23.

our beaches, we might not have the best weather, but we have some of

:04:24.:04:30.

the most beautiful beaches and they support the local economies, no

:04:31.:04:34.

airports no, ridiculous exchange rates. All week we have been asking

:04:35.:04:39.

for your photographs of your favourite beaches. First this looks

:04:40.:04:49.

like California. This is Cameron and his friends in Argyll. The entire

:04:50.:04:56.

beach to themselves. We will show some throughout the night. Kevin

:04:57.:05:00.

will give us a run down of what is to offer at Britain's best beaches.

:05:01.:05:16.

When it cops to finding that perfect beach, with over 11,000 miles of

:05:17.:05:25.

coastline in the UK, we are spoilt for choice. This is a former fishing

:05:26.:05:32.

village in North Wales and a family favourite beach destination. What

:05:33.:05:36.

makes the perfect beach holiday for you? The kids enjoy themselves and

:05:37.:05:41.

fun. The water's shallow and safe and clean and you know the children

:05:42.:05:48.

are safe. If you're looking for clean and safe shores, head to

:05:49.:05:54.

Cornwall. It has eight blue flag beaches. Including St Ives. Surf and

:05:55.:06:04.

sand and galleries in the town centre. If you want an accessible

:06:05.:06:12.

beach without the crowds, check out the Gower peninsula in Wales. A

:06:13.:06:17.

short walk delivers three miles of golden sand that this month was

:06:18.:06:20.

voted one of the top ten beaches in the world. The Atlantic swell that

:06:21.:06:28.

makes it perfect for surfing creates waves here on Hell's Mouth. It is

:06:29.:06:33.

always windy here. Ideal for water sports. Making it the perfect spot

:06:34.:06:41.

for more adventurous beach-lovers. What makes the ideal beach for you?

:06:42.:06:46.

The sand, the waves, the surf break. Clean beach. That is important. We

:06:47.:06:51.

like to be active. We want to do things. I don't want to lie around

:06:52.:06:58.

and just sunbathe. But sometimes there is nothing better than being

:06:59.:07:04.

the only person for miles. That wonderful sense of freedom. You're

:07:05.:07:09.

just away from city life. Like on the Isle of Harris in the Outer

:07:10.:07:15.

Hebrides, a remote piece of paradise. Just the ticket for a bit

:07:16.:07:20.

of rest and relaxation. But for some a towel and a good book won't do.

:07:21.:07:31.

Their perfect beach themes them busy -- keeps them busy. Bamburgh is

:07:32.:07:42.

famous for his castle. If your seaside passion is wildlife, Formby

:07:43.:07:48.

Beach in Merseyside has some rare species of lizards, beetles and

:07:49.:07:54.

toads and red squirrels. Often the best day is down to more domestic

:07:55.:08:00.

creatures. You all right? I'm good. It doesn't take a magician to work

:08:01.:08:06.

out this is probably Dolly's favourite beach. Yes. Dogs can come

:08:07.:08:10.

here all year round. There is no restrictions. So it never gets too

:08:11.:08:14.

busy. Anyone that's ever been travelling or you have been to

:08:15.:08:18.

different places in the world, this place is quite special. At the end

:08:19.:08:23.

of the day, maybe it all comes down to the view. For scenery with a

:08:24.:08:30.

difference in the shadow of a power station, the beach at Dungeness in

:08:31.:08:35.

Kent is bleak and beautiful in equal measure. But for nature this is

:08:36.:08:48.

Dorset. What ever your mood, there is a breath-taking beach to suit

:08:49.:08:54.

you. So clean the sand between your toes tshs breeze on your face - hit

:08:55.:08:59.

the beach. Doesn't it make you proud to live here. And thank you to

:09:00.:09:02.

everyone who has been sending in photographs of their favourite

:09:03.:09:06.

beaches. We have got these guests here and we thought we would put

:09:07.:09:14.

them to good use and you're going to help us read thesous. E out. I'm

:09:15.:09:20.

Linda. Are you on a break. I live here. Who is this and what is this?

:09:21.:09:29.

This is Chrissie and husband Alan and son Freddy at folk stone in

:09:30.:09:38.

Kent. What is your story? I'm Faith also from Newlands east. This is

:09:39.:09:44.

Kate and her dog, George, at their favourite beach, Bamburgh in

:09:45.:09:47.

Northumberland. I know that beach very well. How are you. Please tell

:09:48.:09:54.

me you're on holiday. Yes I'm from Derby. This is Alison's husband and

:09:55.:10:02.

dogs in Gower. Who is at the end of this rainbow? Rowan from Cheltenham.

:10:03.:10:14.

This is Ally and his wife on their wedding day at Tynemouth. All those

:10:15.:10:19.

lovely views and we have another one. Martin. I have one from

:10:20.:10:27.

Joanne's nephew Charlie, she took this in Norfolk in December. It is a

:10:28.:10:33.

great beach for dogs. There is always a dog. We were saying is 13

:10:34.:10:39.

years you have been filming in Port Isaac and you're used to filming in

:10:40.:10:46.

front of a crowd now. Yes, we get a good house. They're all friendly and

:10:47.:10:51.

on side. It is not a worry. In London people beep their horns and

:10:52.:10:56.

try and ruin your game. Very well behave bed. These are my people. I'm

:10:57.:11:08.

sure a lot of these people will be wondering what is going to be

:11:09.:11:12.

happening with you and Louisa in the series, you had a break. Ooh, sorry!

:11:13.:11:21.

Don't worry. I've never had a reaction like that, madam. I haven't

:11:22.:11:28.

even got to the anecdote. Yes, Louisa. We trying to live a normal

:11:29.:11:33.

life and she is unsettled in her career and maybe she will take a new

:11:34.:11:38.

turn and maybe to cheer her up I will allow a dog to live in the

:11:39.:11:46.

house. That is the big news. It is a challenge for you to get the word

:11:47.:11:51.

dog into every answer. Yes there is two dogs. You have dogs and you have

:11:52.:11:58.

got, and this is a real thing, Sigourney Weaver. She left on

:11:59.:12:03.

Monday. She came back. She did a couple of days last series and she

:12:04.:12:07.

has had a good week and had a bigger part. Now, she is flying off to do

:12:08.:12:16.

Avatar for a year. You have said in the past, that you think it will

:12:17.:12:20.

finish at series 9. But you have said it won't be the end of the

:12:21.:12:26.

story. Where do you stand? On the fence! We have only got a commission

:12:27.:12:32.

up to 9. Never say never. It is a good gig. I will never get a better

:12:33.:12:37.

job. You would like it to go on. I don't know. You're right at home

:12:38.:12:41.

here. You look well on it. I love Cornwall. We will talk about your

:12:42.:12:49.

farm. Port Isaac, we thought how do we get some competition. Well we

:12:50.:12:54.

have a volleyball match going on. They have the whole show to score as

:12:55.:12:59.

many points as possible. They will start now. We will keep you

:13:00.:13:04.

up-to-date. This isn't the first time we have been at Perranporth.

:13:05.:13:11.

Last year Iwan was on the beach with volunteers, helping with a beach

:13:12.:13:14.

clear up and they found a lot of rubbish. Pollution is a real

:13:15.:13:20.

problem. But Lucy who is just down the beach has some good news for us.

:13:21.:13:28.

It is a problem across the world, every year around 300 million tonnes

:13:29.:13:36.

of plastic is produce around the world and eight million ends up in

:13:37.:13:41.

the sea. And on beaches like this in Weston-super-Mare. One of the worst

:13:42.:13:47.

offenders are these, the plastic sticks of a cotton bud. But could

:13:48.:13:52.

that be about to change? Following the fight against plastic bags and

:13:53.:13:59.

microbeads, cotton buds are the latest targets for environmentalists

:14:00.:14:05.

like natty. I have joined her on a beach clean. You have to get your

:14:06.:14:11.

eye in. Look all the way along here. How do they get here? People flush

:14:12.:14:17.

them and our sewage filters have holes in to let the water through

:14:18.:14:21.

and cotton buds just pass through. What is the impact of these? Our

:14:22.:14:27.

marine life are consuming these, they break down into microplastics

:14:28.:14:31.

and ends up back in the food chain. These were picked up in Cornwall.

:14:32.:14:36.

From one beach clean. That is around 800 buds. This is from the Avon

:14:37.:14:43.

George. From half a kilometre. What is the solution? They don't have to

:14:44.:14:47.

be made out of plastic. That message seems to be getting through. This

:14:48.:14:53.

year some of the biggest retailers have vowed to switch the stick and

:14:54.:14:59.

phase out the plastic and replace them with paper versions. Co-Op has

:15:00.:15:07.

been selling paper-stemmed buds for eleven years, now Johnson and

:15:08.:15:14.

Johnsons, Marks and Spencers and Waitrose have joined them.

:15:15.:15:23.

This factory in Francis 24 billion cotton buds roll off the production

:15:24.:15:31.

line every year. The manager says that demand for paper stems is on

:15:32.:15:36.

the rise. At the moment 5% but the market is growing a lot. We expect

:15:37.:15:41.

10% next year and the main market is Scandinavia. And the UK and then

:15:42.:15:50.

France also. 2 billion of the cotton buds made here are now coming to the

:15:51.:15:55.

UK and the process starts with big barrels of cotton fed into the

:15:56.:16:00.

machine which is attached to the paper stems with gloom, rather than

:16:01.:16:04.

being heat treated like the plastic ones. A more expensive process, but

:16:05.:16:10.

the stick is three times stronger and retailers say the customer

:16:11.:16:13.

should not see an increase in price. Niall Wilson from a UK-based

:16:14.:16:20.

supplier has worked with the factory to bring the paper bud to the UK.

:16:21.:16:27.

Word has got out about the change and we are being approached by

:16:28.:16:32.

retailers. Waitrose were the first. It is a small impact. It will allow

:16:33.:16:37.

Waitrose to remove 22 tonnes of plastic out of their products. Back

:16:38.:16:43.

in the UK it is sounding more positive, but why has it taken

:16:44.:16:49.

retailers so long to cotton on? Claire was the main driving force

:16:50.:16:53.

behind the Waitrose decision to change to paper. You are Waitrose,

:16:54.:17:00.

using single plastic items it is a real issue. Why don't we take all of

:17:01.:17:07.

them off the shells? Before we get contacted by angry environmental

:17:08.:17:11.

groups, let's do it. So many things go through our minds all the time

:17:12.:17:16.

and we are constantly removing other things from the environment. We were

:17:17.:17:20.

pleased they contacted us but we drove this. We have gone to

:17:21.:17:24.

suppliers and talk to customers about the benefits to moving to

:17:25.:17:30.

paper. With everything from plastic water bottles to straws, what is

:17:31.:17:37.

next? We hope by 2025 all packaging, of Waitrose products, will not go to

:17:38.:17:43.

landfill. Either reused, recycled or composting. Late in the day or not

:17:44.:17:47.

it seems retailers finally doing their bit to make oceans cleaner,

:17:48.:17:53.

but as we move away from plastic stems, there is a simple message

:17:54.:17:57.

campaigners want to get across. Buds go in the bin.

:17:58.:18:03.

We are talking more plastic on the beach and I am with you go, the boss

:18:04.:18:10.

of Surfers Against Sewage. You are a surfer and this is your local beach.

:18:11.:18:16.

Do you see much plastic here? I surf here as much as I can as sadly as I

:18:17.:18:22.

see around the UK, this beach can be awash with single use plastic is

:18:23.:18:26.

regularly. You put effort into cleaning up plastic here and

:18:27.:18:29.

everywhere and we have seen photographs of what it is like

:18:30.:18:33.

before you do a beach clean. Where does it come from on this speech?

:18:34.:18:39.

The systems we have to control these plastics are not fit for purpose and

:18:40.:18:44.

we see a lot escaping from bins and recycling systems and ending up on

:18:45.:18:48.

the beach and ocean so we have to do more to stop the flow of plastics to

:18:49.:18:54.

the ocean. You say it is an environmental emergency, how bad is

:18:55.:18:59.

it really? Shockingly, they say by 2050 there will be more plastic than

:19:00.:19:03.

fish in the sea is so time to take action now. That is a serious

:19:04.:19:09.

statistic. What will we do about it? We can do all sorts. We have 25,000

:19:10.:19:15.

people joining us on beach cleans every year to pick up plastic and we

:19:16.:19:19.

can produce our own plastic footprint and call for more action

:19:20.:19:23.

from the government to stop mastic ending up in the oceans. I will

:19:24.:19:30.

speak to Lizzie, I call her the paddle boarding environmentalists.

:19:31.:19:34.

You have been on inland waterways on a paddle board, did you push your

:19:35.:19:40.

way through plastic? I did 400 miles and took 3000 photos of plastics I

:19:41.:19:44.

encountered along the way on the journey. You spent seven and a half

:19:45.:19:49.

hours paddle boarding the Channel. What condition was the sea in? With

:19:50.:19:56.

the CE is different from inland, way have bigger pieces. This is about

:19:57.:20:00.

micro-plastics. I took samples of the water which we have analysed to

:20:01.:20:05.

find out what is out there. It is hidden. Those samples have been

:20:06.:20:13.

analysed at Plymouth University and Professor Richard Thompson said

:20:14.:20:16.

samples he has analysed have a lot of fibre and plastic. What do you do

:20:17.:20:23.

to reduce it? It is about taking a zero tolerance approach to plastics

:20:24.:20:28.

like bottles, bags and straws. Just to be mindful of what you are using

:20:29.:20:33.

in terms of plastics. Thank you. Zero tolerance from them and me on

:20:34.:20:38.

the beach tonight and from this beach because this morning as every

:20:39.:20:43.

morning the trucks were out, breaking the sand and cleaning away

:20:44.:20:49.

any plastic debris and rubbish. The man driving the tractor is Bob,

:20:50.:20:54.

and he is here with his son Tommy. They own the Watering Hole, you are

:20:55.:20:59.

our hosts this evening. Thank you. We saw you cleaning the beach. What

:21:00.:21:05.

do you turn up? What is the most unusual? The most unusual has

:21:06.:21:11.

probably been a bomb. I guess a World War II bomb. I told the guy to

:21:12.:21:17.

take it back from where he got it from, otherwise we would be closed

:21:18.:21:22.

down. It has happened before. Bomb disposal came out and it was gone.

:21:23.:21:28.

You have been running the bar since 1978. Since then, Tom, you have come

:21:29.:21:37.

on board and it has altered. This is how it started. You had a shack. It

:21:38.:21:44.

was quite an investment! You bought it from an Australian. The guy went

:21:45.:21:49.

to Australia after he sold it. He legged it. He knew there was a bomb!

:21:50.:21:57.

You moved onto this. I progressed with extra mobile kiosks, to take

:21:58.:22:01.

the item to the customer. You are the Del Boy of Perranporth.

:22:02.:22:07.

You have evolved yourself. This is you relaxing. Hard at work at that

:22:08.:22:15.

time, actually. You still have a similar position! Tommy, how proud

:22:16.:22:21.

are you of your dad? Look at that fine figure of a man. He is there.

:22:22.:22:32.

Not really sure what shorts... Looks like a boy band. We have a bathing

:22:33.:22:37.

costume item coming up. Maybe Bob will do some modelling. The business

:22:38.:22:41.

has evolved and music is at the heart, which you are passionate

:22:42.:22:48.

about. About five years ago. I got a call, and it was hard not to come

:22:49.:22:54.

into it. We have the festivals at the Watering Hole. Big names. Huge.

:22:55.:23:00.

We have had Dizzee Rascal, status quo. Tom Jones. And this Friday we

:23:01.:23:13.

have seasick Steve. Quality entertainers. It is something else.

:23:14.:23:18.

We have been lucky with the weather, a beautiful evening. Lots of

:23:19.:23:23.

holiday-makers. You are open most days of the year. What challenges do

:23:24.:23:32.

you face when the weather turns? Wintertime, you have big storms come

:23:33.:23:34.

in and I believe you were here before when we almost got washed

:23:35.:23:41.

away. Where we are sitting, there was not any beach, a 15 foot drop

:23:42.:23:47.

straight down. Bit by bit we have reinforced it with boulders. When

:23:48.:23:53.

the next comes, and we have had a nasty one since, we have managed to

:23:54.:23:56.

keep it out and by being here all year we can keep an eye on it. Tommy

:23:57.:24:02.

it is a driver to stay open and be open. You hardly have a day off. I

:24:03.:24:10.

love it, it is a lifestyle. You are in Cornwall, you go surfing, play

:24:11.:24:15.

rugby, you are around your best mates and this places a great

:24:16.:24:19.

community place to be around. Everyone is your best mate and that

:24:20.:24:24.

is what life is all about and if you have got that, you can't beat it.

:24:25.:24:28.

Thanks again for being fantastic hosts tonight. You are welcome. It

:24:29.:24:34.

is not just this beach that is lovely. Lovely beaches in Britain.

:24:35.:24:39.

We have Melania and maps to help. What is the story with this picture.

:24:40.:24:44.

This is Thomas on Great Yarmouth beach from Peter in Norfolk. This is

:24:45.:24:51.

Laura's family's favourite beach. It does not say where. It is Norfolk.

:24:52.:25:01.

What we would like to know is childhood memories of beach

:25:02.:25:06.

holidays. I live in Perranporth and it is going surfing with my family

:25:07.:25:10.

when I was a kid, with my mum and dad. I would have to say gritty

:25:11.:25:17.

sandwiches. Mine is staying at the Golden Sands holiday park with my

:25:18.:25:24.

mum and dad in a little chalet. Mine is sandy foot wells in the back of

:25:25.:25:28.

the car! On that note, this is Sally Traffic's.

:25:29.:25:40.

I am off to South Seas to see a national treasure, a darling of

:25:41.:25:45.

truckers and motorists across the UK. She was voted the sexiest voice

:25:46.:25:50.

on radio. I wonder what the traffic will be like today. If you are

:25:51.:26:00.

heading to Southsea, be warned the M2 75 coming through Portsmouth, the

:26:01.:26:05.

main route into Southsea, is extremely busy today. Sally Boazman,

:26:06.:26:12.

or Sally Traffic used a holiday in Southsea every year with her mum and

:26:13.:26:17.

dad and brothers. Her family would squeeze into an Austin eight and

:26:18.:26:22.

think nothing of bunking down in it for the night. For her older brother

:26:23.:26:27.

Bill, old habits die hard. Where is your little sister? Nice to see you.

:26:28.:26:35.

My dad was tight, and he would not spend money on bed-and-breakfast so

:26:36.:26:39.

we slept in the car. It must have been cosy. Very cosy. We were really

:26:40.:26:45.

young and it was an adventure to sleep in the car overnight. What

:26:46.:26:50.

brought you to Southsea? Dad used to say, I am taking you on a mystery

:26:51.:26:54.

tour and we would look at each other, raise our eyebrows and say

:26:55.:26:59.

here we go, Southsea again. In those days people did not fly off to

:27:00.:27:03.

Majorca. Everyone went to the nearest resort. Come on, Christine,

:27:04.:27:10.

Bill, let's go on a tour of Southsea. Southsea, here we come!

:27:11.:27:19.

Sally, when did your interesting cars start? We were brought up with

:27:20.:27:24.

cars and my dad would buy and sell them and my grandfather worked for

:27:25.:27:29.

the Austin motor company. I ended up doing the traffic news, which seemed

:27:30.:27:33.

a logical extension of what my life had been told that point. My

:27:34.:27:39.

grandfather started working at the Austin motor company as a carpenter

:27:40.:27:43.

because a lot of the finish in those days would have been made of wood.

:27:44.:27:50.

If you see a particular Austin car before a certain date, my

:27:51.:27:53.

grandfather would have done the woodwork inside the car. I am proud

:27:54.:28:00.

of that. From riding in classic cars to happy memories riding on the

:28:01.:28:05.

carousel. I remember being on this carousel so clearly. They used to

:28:06.:28:12.

try to push me off. It was a little game. You tried to push me off my

:28:13.:28:17.

chicken! Get off me, you big bully! Brotherly love! And don't you just

:28:18.:28:25.

love the British weather? This is a lovely summer's day. What did you

:28:26.:28:32.

use to do? We would go in the Sea regardless. Mum and dad were great

:28:33.:28:37.

swimmers and tortoise to swim here. Used to have a lot of big ships and

:28:38.:28:42.

destroyers going into Portsmouth Harbour, but we would swim in there

:28:43.:28:46.

all the time and we are alive to tell the tale. The model village has

:28:47.:28:53.

been a landmark over 60 years, a favourite with the family but were

:28:54.:28:58.

mum and dad model parents? Dad was charming, played the piano, became

:28:59.:29:03.

an actor in later life and mum was larger-than-life but dad was a free

:29:04.:29:07.

spirit, as we are. Dad was not the only one who watched the pennies.

:29:08.:29:12.

Mum was thrifty. We always had peanut butter and she said the jars

:29:13.:29:16.

and clean them out and make a hole in the top, stick a straw in, orange

:29:17.:29:23.

squash. Orange squash in a peanut butter jar. Stylish. Tell me that is

:29:24.:29:31.

not mean. For Radio 2's award-winning traffic reporter, all

:29:32.:29:35.

roads still lead to Southsea. Fish and chips. This is the way to end

:29:36.:29:40.

the day. How have you enjoyed it? Great, I had not been before. I have

:29:41.:29:47.

a special drink organised. I thought you might like... The icing on the

:29:48.:29:54.

cake. This is what mum used to make. A memory of your mum. Cheers to you,

:29:55.:29:57.

mum and dad. We love Sally traffic. From Sally's

:29:58.:30:17.

cagoule we will go to beach wear. Do you have a go to pair of shorts?

:30:18.:30:23.

Yes, I think I look neat in them, but I'm told I don't. Describe them.

:30:24.:30:32.

Are they a budgie. Manila coloured. The pockets don't work. I put things

:30:33.:30:39.

into them and they drop out. As long as you feel confident. That is the

:30:40.:30:45.

theme of the item now. You will like what is happening. My word, Lucy, I

:30:46.:30:52.

thought you would be in the line up. That is racy. Sashaying to us, we

:30:53.:31:00.

have Amanda, John and Adrian. What are they wearing? They are wearing

:31:01.:31:07.

reproductions of Edwardian clothing and this gentleman in a real 1920s

:31:08.:31:13.

swim suit. That is quite something. It is wool. How does it feel? I will

:31:14.:31:20.

go for a swim in a minute. It is not too itchy. Elaborate. Initially men

:31:21.:31:28.

went swimming naked. When it became more popular with families to go to

:31:29.:31:33.

the seaside, they started experimenting with separate beaches

:31:34.:31:36.

for men and women and no, we are just going to have the men cover up.

:31:37.:31:42.

This is the result. The covered up Edwardian swimming gent and the

:31:43.:31:49.

covered up swimming Edwardian lady. It is so much more athletic by the

:31:50.:31:55.

20s. I think they're glad they have got the outfits and they heard they

:31:56.:32:02.

used to be naked. Next wave of model please. We have the 50s and 60s and

:32:03.:32:09.

see how the female form is not being covered, but exposed and enjoyed. It

:32:10.:32:13.

is a revolution and we have the bikini. First invented in 1946.

:32:14.:32:20.

Which is really... A long time ago. But it was so scandalous that the

:32:21.:32:26.

French mavn who invented -- Frenchman who invented it couldn't

:32:27.:32:33.

find anybody to model it and had to go to an exotic dancer. So this is a

:32:34.:32:38.

sort of compromise version which you see in the 50s in which the belly

:32:39.:32:46.

button is hidden. It wouldn't hide mine. Now our next wave. We have the

:32:47.:32:57.

70s, the 80s and 90s, look how small things have got. Both men and women,

:32:58.:33:02.

teeny. With and we have the influence of things like Baywatch

:33:03.:33:14.

with the high leg xut. -- cut. It is iconic I'm ready to dash into the

:33:15.:33:19.

sea and save somebody. And we are covering member up again. Things

:33:20.:33:23.

have gone big and baggy. Would you rather be in the baggy brights o the

:33:24.:33:32.

swimpier once. . The Baggies riv time. Bag -- the baggies every time.

:33:33.:33:41.

I'm just thinking how beautiful it is. This is a dream. It is. Moving

:33:42.:33:51.

on to food. We have Dave here, who is a barbecue extraordinary,

:33:52.:33:57.

Harvey's a farmer from up the road and Lucy your sister-in-law is

:33:58.:34:00.

helping. Here is your barbecue. That is impressive. Talk us through this

:34:01.:34:08.

technique. This is my fire pit. I take it around the the summer. We

:34:09.:34:13.

have half of one of Harvey's lambs on the go. Do you do parties? I do

:34:14.:34:20.

whatever. We will have a word later. One thing you do is barbecue tips

:34:21.:34:25.

and a lot of people will be cooking, come on. What I would say is have an

:34:26.:34:32.

open fire. Lots of barbecues have lids and they give great results,

:34:33.:34:39.

but they're not as much fun. Speak to your butcher, get something a bit

:34:40.:34:45.

different and just let the meat and the fire do their thing. Just make

:34:46.:34:50.

sure it doesn't get too hot. We have this burger competition. I had a

:34:51.:34:55.

word with you and I said, make mine a good one. We have made it cheap

:34:56.:35:04.

and cheesy. It is going down well. Well, basically, your's turned out

:35:05.:35:07.

like a proper burger. I thought the idea was go left field. It is left

:35:08.:35:16.

field, it has chilli jam and cheap cheese and yellow sauce. Take the

:35:17.:35:20.

top off, that looks like, you know... I know what people wants. I

:35:21.:35:25.

was going for something more alternative and went for pickled

:35:26.:35:33.

beetroot with Brie yoch. You have gone posh. We are having a taste

:35:34.:35:38.

test and will chalk up who likes what later. Burgers are coming, all

:35:39.:35:44.

right? It won't be like. There is cries of, why aren't we doing

:35:45.:35:49.

pasties. Let's not worry. We will see you soon. Martin. Yes. That look

:35:50.:35:56.

very good, yours. Well, I know. I just went classic. Martin what is

:35:57.:36:10.

your choice. Posh. Posh. We will chatted about your charity festival.

:36:11.:36:17.

Maybe you want to try. Hang on. I don't want to cover you with burger.

:36:18.:36:22.

You always put on a charity fair. Yes, we do. This is our ninth year

:36:23.:36:28.

and it is in aid of Dorset and Somerset air ambulance and we have a

:36:29.:36:34.

fun fair with a big wheel and a pony show and we have a massive dog show.

:36:35.:36:38.

This year in the novelty ring, which I judge, we are having the dog most

:36:39.:36:48.

like Neil Morris si competition. There is a lot of local excitement

:36:49.:36:53.

about that. We have southern golden retriever display. We have horses

:36:54.:36:59.

coming from the pony club. Clydesdales and I will show my

:37:00.:37:06.

Clydesdales. So you have put some of the competitions on because you want

:37:07.:37:10.

to win. Yes just that one. And I generally do. We were thinking about

:37:11.:37:21.

is in Neil Morrissey competition and we thought Dog Martin. Haif. Hey.

:37:22.:37:28.

You were thinking for a long time. The whole of the North Cornish coast

:37:29.:37:34.

to find dogs that could be contenders. Will it be insulting? We

:37:35.:37:43.

have the line up. They're beautiful and Mason. I have been looking at

:37:44.:37:51.

Mason. He is so handsome. Burger? Davis from Cyprus. The question is,

:37:52.:37:58.

I mean, dog... You spot the similarity between me and this dog?

:37:59.:38:06.

Dog Martin. He has got lucky hasn't he? Thank you Mason. Keep him in

:38:07.:38:15.

mind. The next one. Here is Chrissie. Teddy is seven months old.

:38:16.:38:23.

He likes being picked up. Where do you put the pajamas. There is a zip

:38:24.:38:30.

here somewhere? Hello, Teddy. I think Teddy is a good contender.

:38:31.:38:36.

Like me? He is too nice. The question is, do you look like this

:38:37.:38:41.

dog? Maybe, let's have a look at some of the others. Keep them

:38:42.:38:51.

coming. He is obedient. Now this, Frances. That is just rude. Courage

:38:52.:38:57.

is four. What you have done is rude. Do you often wear a bib? If I'm

:38:58.:39:08.

feeling dribbly. He is a whopper. What breed? Newfoundland. It is hard

:39:09.:39:14.

to ask me to judge a dog that look like me. You could help. When you

:39:15.:39:20.

look in the mirror, do you see Courage? I see regret! Is there one

:39:21.:39:34.

called Regret? One final doggie. This doggie. Hello sweetie. Clever

:39:35.:39:40.

dog. He knows a lot of tricks. Will he demonstrate something? What is

:39:41.:39:47.

that one? Stand on my lap? Oh! Look at that! He is like me. He is smart.

:39:48.:39:53.

He is lovely. The question is, do you look... Do you think you look

:39:54.:40:00.

like this dog? I'm big on cockers. I wish I looked like him actually. I

:40:01.:40:07.

wish I had a snout. He is a handsome dog. That was out loud, wasn't it.

:40:08.:40:13.

We have got to pick a winner. This one. Oh, well done! Buddie. Well

:40:14.:40:27.

done, Buddie. No ex-pension played. -- expense spared, a Martin Clunes

:40:28.:40:31.

lead. You found a dog that looks like you and now you can tuck into

:40:32.:40:36.

your burger. Thank you. See you, Buddie. Bye! They were all gorgeous.

:40:37.:40:47.

Hang on, we have got... Volleyball update. 48 to 44. Port Isaac are

:40:48.:40:58.

ahead. Really? Wow. Come on Port Isaac. Volleyball isn't the only

:40:59.:41:07.

sport played on the beach, it is the home to the English National Surfing

:41:08.:41:13.

Championships. For the folk who dedicate their lives to the sport it

:41:14.:41:15.

is about more man medals. Nine, peg leg, changed it legally.

:41:16.:41:32.

Originally I was brought up in Essex. I came down when I was 13. As

:41:33.:41:43.

far it is leg goes. It was a birth defect. They were given the chance

:41:44.:41:51.

of a prosthetic and they chopped it off and now life has been filled

:41:52.:41:56.

around surfing. I live what some would class an alternative life. I

:41:57.:42:01.

live in a camper van and use it for travels. I don't have to pack. I

:42:02.:42:07.

just turn the key. I have been all over, Norway. Minus 31. It was hard

:42:08.:42:13.

core. I've three kids. They get it and understand it. And they come

:42:14.:42:17.

down and stay in the van. They like camping. For me, surfing is my

:42:18.:42:26.

meditation, my gym, it is escape, my head space. Which bill in the ocean

:42:27.:42:33.

until the last day. Before I started surfing I studied medicine. Growing

:42:34.:42:38.

up I was sick and I have got Crohn's disease and the majority of my

:42:39.:42:42.

intestines removed when I was young. So I kind of grew up in hospital and

:42:43.:42:47.

you almost feel like you have in prison and you have a sense of I

:42:48.:42:52.

just want the live my life. About 18 I was living in Leeds and I wept on

:42:53.:42:57.

holiday -- went on holiday to Tenerife. Had one surf lesson, loved

:42:58.:43:04.

it and stayed for about six years. As soon as you get in the water I

:43:05.:43:09.

feel relaxed and happy and no two waves are the same. That is what I

:43:10.:43:15.

love. Surfing opens doors to travel and you go to amazing places and

:43:16.:43:20.

meet amazing people. It is time consuming, making videos, but I love

:43:21.:43:24.

it. It is more of a comedy value we do it for. I love to make people

:43:25.:43:28.

laugh or to entertain. I don't think you can reach an age where you go, I

:43:29.:43:34.

can't surf and if I did, yeah, that would suck. The best feeling in the

:43:35.:43:41.

world. Surfing was a family thing, something I did with my dad. I fell

:43:42.:43:47.

in love with it at a young age and it has always been part of my life

:43:48.:43:51.

and something I have to do. I was very determined that I did want to

:43:52.:43:55.

be a professional surfer. Even at ten years old. It is a sense of

:43:56.:44:00.

freedom and being close to nature, the rawness of being in the sea and

:44:01.:44:04.

having something so powerful riding it and it has a spiritual side and I

:44:05.:44:10.

think all those things put together make it exciting. I have eleven

:44:11.:44:18.

European titles, 20 odd British titles. I have been second in the

:44:19.:44:21.

world three times. Not quite got there. But the fire's still burning.

:44:22.:44:30.

I've three kids and Lucas is nine, the bond we have is incredible and

:44:31.:44:34.

he just loves it so much. I like surfing with dad every day and I

:44:35.:44:39.

just like getting in the water no matter what it's like and we have

:44:40.:44:44.

fun. But I get a buzz off watching him surf. Just watching him learn.

:44:45.:44:49.

But the main point is it is trying to keep it fun and about us living

:44:50.:44:54.

day-to-day and making the most of it. That is what it is about. Well,

:44:55.:45:02.

we are now joined by Nigel, Al and friend from the local surf club.

:45:03.:45:08.

Looking at those folk, you're a life line for surfers like that? We we

:45:09.:45:13.

are the surf life savers and train to save people. So the club was

:45:14.:45:20.

founded in 1957 and we have 360 members. But we are part of a bigger

:45:21.:45:28.

thing of surf life saving GB with 7,000 members and 07 clubs and we

:45:29.:45:32.

train from a young age from the age of five to get them used to the

:45:33.:45:37.

beach environment and spot, we say a good lifeguard is a dry one to do it

:45:38.:45:40.

before it happens. You were the second lifeguard in the

:45:41.:45:51.

UK tell us about the early days. Before the club was formed, there

:45:52.:45:58.

were drownings on this beach. A group of members, 12, got together

:45:59.:46:06.

and discussed it. They formed the club, 1957. I joined at that time,

:46:07.:46:10.

because I knew they were short of swimmers. We thought we would get on

:46:11.:46:20.

and did various patrols. I had an early rescue back in 57-58, when we

:46:21.:46:30.

had a mother and son washed off the bridge here. Washed over into the

:46:31.:46:38.

river. The lifeguard at the time swam out to them, to support them,

:46:39.:46:42.

but he was getting washed out through the river and was afraid he

:46:43.:46:45.

would go right through the river and managed to get her across to the

:46:46.:46:51.

rock below the cliff. I swam out with a - and belts from here. -- a

:46:52.:46:59.

line and belt and managed to get close to her and he said, I think I

:47:00.:47:05.

lost her. That made me go harder. I managed to get to him, bring the

:47:06.:47:10.

mother back first, brought her back onto the beach and she was put on a

:47:11.:47:15.

stretcher to revive her and I went back to get her son. Brought him

:47:16.:47:22.

back. He was OK. Wow. We have been looking at lovely old photos and we

:47:23.:47:27.

have great old footage. It is about awareness and letting people know

:47:28.:47:32.

what to do when you are in the water and look at this. Plim, how many

:47:33.:47:41.

rescues have you done? I would say over 2000. Really! Probably more.

:47:42.:47:48.

There is a story, you spend an enormous amount of time doing CPR.

:47:49.:47:53.

We did on one gentleman behind Chapel Rock, where there is a blind

:47:54.:47:58.

spot for lifeguards and he went in there and was unconscious when we

:47:59.:48:01.

pulled him out of the water with no signs of life. The two of us, only

:48:02.:48:10.

two guards at the time, if we are working on the guy on the beach it

:48:11.:48:15.

is not guarded so luckily the Surf club guys came to stand in and we

:48:16.:48:23.

worked on this chap over an hour. Well... You were rightly awarded for

:48:24.:48:29.

it at the end. We heard a gurgling and suddenly he was sick and it was

:48:30.:48:34.

the best sound be heard. Over an hour. He came around. The community

:48:35.:48:42.

here are grateful for all the work you do. Fantastic. Everybody is very

:48:43.:48:49.

grateful to you. I was talking to Lucy about surfing. She is local.

:48:50.:48:54.

She said do not talk to me about surfing because I think I am the

:48:55.:48:58.

only person on the North Cornish coast to cannot surf. I do not have

:48:59.:49:05.

the balance or skills. I am here with skilled young people down at

:49:06.:49:11.

the surf life-saving club. We are going to play flags. Take it away,

:49:12.:49:21.

Spike. Blow the whistle. OK, Lottie, you are 13 and an important member

:49:22.:49:25.

of the club. What are your colleagues doing? Collecting flags

:49:26.:49:30.

as if they are people in the sea, to create the reaction quicker. Is it

:49:31.:49:39.

fun? I come down here with my dog. Oh, look, he is gorgeous.

:49:40.:49:47.

And it is fun? It is almost like you are not training but playing a game.

:49:48.:49:52.

Zak, you really are training to do something important. We are training

:49:53.:49:57.

to save lives in case there is a real emergency. What skills are

:49:58.:50:04.

learning? Reaction times. Also it improves fitness. You need a lot of

:50:05.:50:12.

fitness to do it. You are very impressive young people and I feel

:50:13.:50:17.

very safe on the beach tonight. Back to you. Thanks. It is almost

:50:18.:50:25.

time for live music from the Kooks. They are warming up, well, not

:50:26.:50:29.

really, they are fiddling with their guitars. The normal backdrop we have

:50:30.:50:34.

with lights and people leaning over the barriers. Look at this! There

:50:35.:50:41.

are still barriers. But... This is down with a story of people who

:50:42.:50:44.

spend longer at the seaside than intended.

:50:45.:50:55.

I went to see to see the world and to have a bit of excitement. And

:50:56.:51:03.

here I was, I was really getting that excitement. The Suez Canal, a

:51:04.:51:15.

crucial artery of global trade allowing ships to pass between Asia

:51:16.:51:17.

and Europe without sailing around Africa. 50 years ago that

:51:18.:51:25.

dramatically changed. After years of tension, war broke out between the

:51:26.:51:29.

surrounding nations, Egypt, Jordan and Syria on one side, Israel on the
