Hello and welcome to a Wednesday One Show with Matt Baker And Alex

:00:23.:00:29.

Jones. Tonight we have a show of winners. Our women did well at the

:00:29.:00:32.

Olympics. We found a Cornish crew who think they can beat them on

:00:33.:00:36.

their local waters. It's a challenge. We're catching up with a

:00:36.:00:40.

teacher from Oldham who finally meets her pupils for the first time

:00:40.:00:45.

in India. It's a lovely story. There's three women who have won

:00:45.:00:48.

countless victories for victims of Rip Off Britain, ange la, Gloria

:00:48.:00:53.

and Julia are here tonight. APPLAUSE

:00:53.:00:59.

And, we have the man who since winning best comedian at the

:00:59.:01:04.

Edinburgh Fringe in 1991 has gone from king of the lads to an older

:01:04.:01:10.

dad. It's Frank Skinner. APPLAUSE

:01:10.:01:15.

Good to see you. Thank you. Thank you for coming in. We have to start,

:01:15.:01:18.

I mean obviously there's going to be lots of people in Liverpool

:01:18.:01:23.

today on your love of football, who amongst real anger are going to

:01:23.:01:27.

feel like they have won a battle today with the news of the

:01:27.:01:30.

Hillsborough case. There won't be anyone punching the air. It's

:01:30.:01:34.

incredible that those people have stuck with that campaign and

:01:34.:01:37.

finally got an apology from the Prime Minister and complete

:01:37.:01:43.

vindication for the Liverpool fans, because even as a massive football

:01:43.:01:47.

lover, it's steadily been filtered into our mind that it was a lot of

:01:47.:01:51.

drinken people without tickets and it was just rubbish. That was

:01:51.:01:55.

invented. Anyone who is part of their campaign and who has

:01:55.:01:58.

supported their campaign, it's quite emotional, should be proud.

:01:58.:02:03.

It's a first class example of people power. I did a benefit gig

:02:03.:02:11.

up in Anfield for it. I met some of the families and stuff. It's a

:02:11.:02:13.

triumph that's come from love. They were determined that they were

:02:13.:02:17.

going to get what was right for those people. Brilliant. It's been

:02:17.:02:22.

a long time coming. More from franc later on, of course. First, none of

:02:22.:02:28.

us know how exactly how we'd react in an emergency situation. When the

:02:28.:02:32.

moment came for Peter Dodd from Cheshire, he did himself proud.

:02:32.:02:36.

Chef Ainsley Harriott webt to meet him and helped his local community

:02:36.:02:42.

to serve up a special thank you. It's not often that you meet a hero,

:02:42.:02:46.

someone that goes the extra mile. Today, I'm going to do just that.

:02:46.:02:50.

Hopefully with a little help from my friends, I'm going to create a

:02:50.:02:56.

feast for him that he'll remember for the rest of his life. Peter

:02:56.:03:00.

Dodd runs the Post Office in Glazebrook Cheshire. Last October

:03:00.:03:06.

he was serving his friend 81-year- old Margaret Bloor who two men came

:03:06.:03:11.

in carrying machetes. What happened next was the stuff of nightmares.

:03:11.:03:17.

Two raiders grabbed Margaret round the throat. They through the card

:03:17.:03:22.

rack. It was just a blur, just all happened so quick. I managed to get

:03:22.:03:26.

them out of the shop, hit the alarms and get onto the police.

:03:26.:03:29.

Well I was terrified because I didn't know what was going to

:03:29.:03:37.

happen to me. Then Peter had come to save me. I don't think I'd have

:03:37.:03:43.

been here today if he hadn't have done what he did. The robbers

:03:43.:03:48.

eventually fled with nearly �3,000 in cash. Peter had part of his

:03:48.:03:53.

finger hacked off in the struggle. I'm just an ordinary guy doing what

:03:53.:03:57.

needed to be done at the time to save Margaret. What Peter doesn't

:03:57.:04:02.

know is that The One Show has set me a really ambitious task - we

:04:02.:04:07.

want to thank Peter for his act of Brave New Worldery. By doing that

:04:07.:04:15.

it means a big -- act of bravery. By doing that it means a banquet.

:04:15.:04:19.

At 6pm the local community will turn up. The weather and time, hmm,

:04:19.:04:24.

they're already against me. I need the support of local suppliers to

:04:24.:04:29.

come up with the ingredients. First BBC Radio Manchester. It's 7.30am.

:04:29.:04:33.

We've made sure Peter isn't listening. He's busy in the shop. I

:04:33.:04:38.

appeal for Cheshire grub on the breakfast show. Please phone in, if

:04:38.:04:42.

you have local cider, chutney, cheese, fish, meat, anything at all,

:04:42.:04:46.

let me know. Whatever you give me I'll do my best to use all the

:04:46.:04:52.

produce. Have you not got a menu? I've got nothing mate. I've got 50

:04:52.:04:57.

people coming. Cheshire I love you, help me! By 8am suppliers are

:04:57.:05:01.

ringing, so moved by Peter's story they're ready to hand over their

:05:01.:05:07.

produce. That would be brilliant, get some of your pop corn. Sausages

:05:07.:05:13.

or burgers. You saying you'd give me �100 worth of meat is fantastic.

:05:13.:05:17.

You're coming up with a wonderful brass band, that's brilliant. Time

:05:17.:05:23.

to gather up all the produce that's been pledged. First is franc's

:05:23.:05:26.

butcher shop. This is a lovely free range loin of pork. Please look

:05:26.:05:34.

after it. There you go. That is superb. Even the local GP chips in

:05:34.:05:38.

with cabbages and herbs from the surgery. I caught the news as I was

:05:38.:05:42.

coming in and it was Peter's name. You know him? Yeah. He's a lovely

:05:42.:05:48.

chap. If anybody deserves it Peter does. Thanks, doc. And to add to

:05:48.:05:53.

the loin of pork I got from franc, another butcher has offered me more

:05:53.:05:58.

meat. What have we got? We've got three selections of burgers, pork

:05:58.:06:05.

and am, minty lamb, peppered steak, sausages you name it. Give me a hug.

:06:05.:06:10.

It's for the barbeque. Thank you. The people of Cheshire have been so

:06:10.:06:14.

generous. I think I have enough meat to feed the crowd. At the

:06:14.:06:21.

local farm shop they've pulled out all the stops to provide our veg.

:06:21.:06:26.

These are magnificent. We have lettuce, asparagus. Is that good

:06:26.:06:31.

enough for you? Superb. Thank you. Peter has no idea what's going on.

:06:31.:06:36.

He thinks I'm here toint view him about his bravery and that he'll be

:06:36.:06:39.

meeting me alone. Little does he know the whole community will be

:06:39.:06:45.

here to surprise him. I've got enough food, but the forecast,

:06:45.:06:51.

torrential rain, threatens to ruin the party. Back at the Black Swan,

:06:51.:06:55.

Stewart the landlord has worse news. We lost the gas and the water in

:06:55.:07:00.

the building works that's happening at the moment, this morning. Thanks.

:07:00.:07:04.

I'm going back to the kitchen. I have no choice but to soldier on

:07:04.:07:07.

and hope the pub's utilities get fixed in time. In the kitchen it's

:07:07.:07:12.

time to tell the boys what I'm planning to do with these wonderful

:07:12.:07:16.

ingredients. Fantastic menu. We're starting with that roast loin of

:07:16.:07:22.

pork, sausages, burgers, chicken wings, salad. For dessert it's

:07:22.:07:28.

meringue with cream cheese, strawberries and blewries --

:07:28.:07:33.

blueberries. I've got to get on. Poor Ainslie. He's got his work cut

:07:33.:07:37.

out. On the theme of surprises, we mentioned that you've recently

:07:37.:07:43.

become a dad. Was Buzz planned? Yeah, he was planned. We were doing

:07:43.:07:46.

that thing, not that I want to expose my private life, we were

:07:46.:07:53.

doing that thing "It's Wednesday, we need to have sex" that kind of

:07:53.:07:56.

thing. It's great. Since he's been born, we don't have that

:07:56.:08:01.

conversation. It's a great name. I love the name Buzz. Do you, I took

:08:01.:08:09.

a bit of stick. It's quite a se leb name. You think? Whra would a

:08:10.:08:14.

younger Franc have made of the name? I was a child of the space

:08:14.:08:19.

race. Because the second man on the moon was Buzz Aldrin that's where

:08:19.:08:23.

it came from. My girlfriend suggested it. I couldn't believe my

:08:23.:08:30.

luck. I think she was basing it on Buzz Lightyear.

:08:30.:08:32.

LAUGHTER No! She isn't.

:08:32.:08:38.

I'm in a position I need to say her age, but then I'll be in more

:08:38.:08:42.

trouble. She's much older - no, not much, but a lot. She suggested it.

:08:42.:08:48.

We kind of referred to that thing which was in her belly as Buzz. We

:08:48.:08:52.

called him that so much, it seemed odd to call him anything else.

:08:52.:09:01.

that theme of Buzz Aldrin, this is for him. We have an -- we have

:09:01.:09:07.

bought him a -- an acre of the moon. Brilliant. Do you have building

:09:07.:09:13.

rights? I don't think so. That's so lovely. It will go lovely in all

:09:13.:09:18.

the photos of me. As well as having a brand new baby, you've written

:09:18.:09:23.

the second series of your Radio 4 comedy Don't Start, which does

:09:23.:09:28.

start tonight. Against my express command it does start tonight.

:09:28.:09:32.

based on two characters called Neil and Kim. They bicker over lots of

:09:32.:09:36.

things. It's a couple. Every episode is one big argument. It's a

:09:36.:09:40.

show I've been researching for about 35 years. Did you use your

:09:40.:09:44.

own stuff? Yes some of them are direct lifts. There's a thing

:09:44.:09:47.

tonight where she brings up the fact that when they were in

:09:47.:09:51.

Brighton, in their early days, he accused of her trying to poison him.

:09:51.:09:55.

And exactly, that's what happened with me and my girlfriend Kath. I

:09:55.:10:00.

got ill and we were new. You know, whenever you go out with someone

:10:00.:10:07.

the first three weeks you wonder if they might be a poisoner. I brought

:10:07.:10:11.

it up. I said, "Can I ask you a serious question, I feel we know

:10:11.:10:17.

each other now. Are you trying to poison me?" She took against me for

:10:17.:10:26.

about it. We had blood tests and lie detector... I meant it at the

:10:26.:10:30.

time. She still brings it up. She has a fantastic memory for

:10:30.:10:34.

arguments. She can, we can have an argument and I think I've got away

:10:34.:10:39.

with it and it's over. What she's done is she book marks it and three

:10:39.:10:43.

days later she'll' say, "By the way on the subject of that..." Wand

:10:43.:10:49.

we're off again. It's cleverly written Azazi the topic progresses

:10:49.:10:53.

other arguments sprout off it. Occasionally we have greatest hits

:10:53.:10:57.

arguments where we bring up all our favourites into one spectacular,

:10:57.:11:03.

it's like a gig you know. You want to do new stuff but you want a few

:11:03.:11:06.

old favourites as well. Have you to file arguments. It's what we girls

:11:06.:11:10.

do. If you have arguments you want franc to give a verdict on, e. Maim

:11:10.:11:18.

us now. We'll have both sides of the argument. This year it's the

:11:18.:11:22.

25th an verse since your first stand-up gig. I thought you were

:11:22.:11:26.

going to say since my first argument! Yes on December 9, I will

:11:26.:11:33.

have been a comedian for 25 years, which is brilliant. Does it feel

:11:33.:11:40.

like 25 years? Some Giggs have felt like 25 years in themselves. It

:11:40.:11:42.

feels brilliant. I tried proper work and I never took to it. I'll

:11:43.:11:47.

be honest with you. It's the best job ever. What did you try for

:11:47.:11:54.

proper work? I did, oh, I worked in factories. I had a job smashing up

:11:54.:11:59.

furniture with a sledgehammer. That wasn't a bad job that. When an end

:11:59.:12:02.

of line furniture thing they didn't want it to go to market, I what

:12:02.:12:11.

alone in a room and I smashed it up and put it in a furnace. That

:12:11.:12:15.

sounds brilliant. These days young comedians cite you as their

:12:15.:12:18.

inspiration. What advice do you give to the new guys on the block?

:12:18.:12:27.

Don't be too funny. I always, I mean I do think it's basically

:12:27.:12:31.

about - I asked an American comedian when I started out and his

:12:31.:12:36.

advice was "never leave your wallet in the dressingroom". I've got it

:12:37.:12:41.

with me now. There's very trustworthy people here. Even so, I

:12:42.:12:47.

think it's a good thing. I just think it's about working at it and

:12:47.:12:51.

getting hours on stage. Some people think they can just turn up and be

:12:51.:12:55.

as funny as with their mates but it takes a while to get there. It's

:12:55.:12:59.

hard, when you have all that experience, to say to people this

:12:59.:13:03.

is how you do it. I don't really do that. But one woman said to me,

:13:03.:13:07.

"You know you've been an inspiration to me. I remember

:13:07.:13:11.

watching you absolutely die at the royal command performance. Whenever

:13:11.:13:20.

I die I always think of that. "I found that very moving. That's

:13:20.:13:24.

absolutely true. Now, after our female rowing team did so well at

:13:24.:13:27.

the Olympics, you'd have forgiven them for taking the rest of the

:13:27.:13:32.

year off. But when a group of Cornish rowers threw down the

:13:32.:13:37.

gauntlet for a race, they couldn't say no. Lucy Siegle is there to see

:13:37.:13:39.

say no. Lucy Siegle is there to see what they've let themselves in for.

:13:39.:13:42.

These are the boats that our Olympic Coxless pair rowers are

:13:42.:13:47.

used to. Today, however, they have to deal with this, a bigger boat

:13:47.:13:51.

and longer oars. With a clutch of Olympic medals you would think that

:13:51.:13:55.

British rowers have little left to prove. But here in squall, a

:13:55.:13:58.

challenge has been set that's irresistible to their competitive

:13:58.:14:08.
:14:08.:14:20.

It is the professional's versus the fixed CTC rowers. This local boat

:14:21.:14:27.

is made of Elmet and packed full of history. Andy is the curator of

:14:27.:14:33.

boats at the National Maritime Museum here in Cornwall. Originally,

:14:33.:14:39.

Giggs were working boats, they were used to take pilots out to the

:14:39.:14:42.

ships coming at the Channel. A lot of them competed amongst themselves

:14:42.:14:47.

in races, because the idea of getting out to the ship first for

:14:47.:14:50.

business meant that you got the business first and you made the

:14:50.:14:56.

money. From that, the sport evolved naturally, so the fastest boat got

:14:56.:15:01.

the work first. As engines and steam came along, the popularity

:15:01.:15:06.

tended to dwindle, because it tended to be slower, the Rolling

:15:06.:15:12.

boat, so they were left behind by technology. Around 100 clubs around

:15:12.:15:16.

the globe keeps the competitive heritage alive, and the best are

:15:16.:15:22.

all in Cornwall. Milly Edwards are the Roseland Club is a local racing

:15:23.:15:28.

legend and an authority on the sport. What qualities do you need?

:15:28.:15:33.

Well, apart from being fit and strong, really a typical row would

:15:33.:15:38.

be tall with good believers, but if you look at the shape of the boat,

:15:38.:15:41.

smaller people can go in the smaller bit. So it is about

:15:41.:15:47.

teamwork. It is all about teamwork, you will find out in a minute.

:15:47.:15:54.

he reckons anyone can do it. Hold it like Karen is. Is it hard on the

:15:54.:16:01.

muscles? Yes! So a few pointers and here I go.

:16:01.:16:09.

Focus on the blade. That is good. It has got to be quick, but get

:16:09.:16:19.
:16:19.:16:34.

It will be some time before I am taking them on, but the local

:16:34.:16:40.

team's confidence is running high. We won the championships at the

:16:40.:16:44.

weekend, and we are bringing that through tomorrow night to take them

:16:44.:16:50.

on. So I have had a go, it is quite difficult, are the Olympians going

:16:50.:16:56.

to be able to cope? It is completely different, they slide,

:16:56.:17:03.

whereas we go back. They are used to two paddles, so they need to get

:17:03.:17:09.

used to just having one. Karen is used to it, they are the best crew

:17:09.:17:19.
:17:19.:17:22.

Well, the day's action is well under way, and this is a man is no

:17:22.:17:26.

stranger to racing and the track, Iwan Thomas. Have you been catching

:17:26.:17:32.

any crowds today? Not yet, there is plenty of time for that, but it has

:17:32.:17:35.

been a great day here, another great day, and look at all these

:17:35.:17:43.

people who have turned out to support our rowers. Amazing. Now, I

:17:43.:17:48.

am a woman of the people, and tonight, because of that, I am on

:17:48.:17:53.

the side of the amateurs. I love the public, but I have to be

:17:54.:17:57.

backing the Olympians today, they have had a great summer. This was

:17:57.:18:03.

going to be really tough of the girls, no carbon-fibre inside, a

:18:03.:18:13.
:18:13.:18:13.

big heavy boats, let's see how they The Falmouth crew, straight in

:18:13.:18:18.

there, amazing technique, they are used to the waters. Look at the

:18:18.:18:22.

lead they have got. I cannot make excuses for the Olympians, these

:18:22.:18:29.

guys are amazing! He is clear water, amazing. What a win, they go,

:18:29.:18:35.

celebrating. That is the salute. Worthy winners. I knew they would

:18:35.:18:41.

win. They are all here with us now, so let's find out what happened.

:18:41.:18:45.

are come to start with our Olympians, Helen, were you

:18:45.:18:49.

embarrassed? That was quite hard. We are definitely not embarrassed,

:18:49.:18:53.

because these guys are amazing, and it is very different to what we do

:18:53.:19:01.

every day. Bideford. But not quite well enough, could you go even

:19:01.:19:07.

faster? We might have been able to in a race boat, but we gave them a

:19:07.:19:14.

fair chance. I am so proud. I am proud of the locals as well, but I

:19:14.:19:19.

know what it is like our season, you're not in training, was down to

:19:19.:19:25.

too much partying? Controversial! have been on a bread and water diet

:19:25.:19:29.

since the Olympics, I cannot speak for my crew mates, but I have just

:19:29.:19:33.

been contemplating life. We have been partying for six weeks, we are

:19:33.:19:39.

in no shape at all! We are going to switch things up. There is an

:19:39.:19:42.

important race to come, the Andy Ince wants to basque in their

:19:42.:19:47.

individual glory, their last race of the year, so each of them is

:19:47.:19:51.

going to captain a boat, and they will get to choose from this motley

:19:51.:20:01.
:20:01.:20:03.

crew. Look at all the talent, who Boat! No takers, no takers, I will

:20:03.:20:10.

try to get into a team anyway. Bath good luck! It has got to be

:20:10.:20:14.

the end Indians, surely. That was brilliant comedy, looking in the

:20:14.:20:24.
:20:24.:20:25.

other direction. It is like when it La dog off. -- when you tell a dog

:20:25.:20:31.

off. I have had a go at that on Countryfile, it is hard. If you do

:20:31.:20:37.

not teed up with the rhythm, it smacks you back in the stomach.

:20:37.:20:42.

This is how we treat our heroes! You have at the open-top bus, now

:20:42.:20:47.

come and get beaten up in Cornwall. Speaking of heroes, the feel-good

:20:47.:20:51.

factor from the Paralympic Games is still very much in the air, but the

:20:51.:20:57.

role played by one of the sponsors, Atos, continues to cause

:20:57.:21:02.

controversy. Atos runs tests for the government on whether people

:21:02.:21:07.

qualify for benefits. Many are not happy with the results, as Declan

:21:07.:21:13.

Law has found out. We spend �13 billion per year on

:21:13.:21:17.

benefits for people who are unable to work because of disability or

:21:17.:21:22.

health issues. Now the government is replacing the old benefit with a

:21:22.:21:25.

new allowance. They say the aim is to find out if some recipients can

:21:25.:21:31.

actually do some sort of work and come off benefits. French company

:21:31.:21:35.

Atos have been paid �100 million per year to test everyone who

:21:35.:21:39.

claimed for benefits to see whether they deserved to continue receiving

:21:39.:21:44.

it. The test is called the work capability assessment. Since its

:21:44.:21:47.

introduction, there has been growing anger against the

:21:47.:21:51.

assessment, with many sick and disabled people saying it is

:21:51.:21:57.

pushing them to the brink. I first met 59-year-old Chris earlier this

:21:57.:22:01.

summer, when filming for Panorama. It was immediately obvious that he

:22:01.:22:08.

was not a well man. Can we stop for a minute? He worked for nearly 40

:22:08.:22:14.

years, first in the steel industry, and then as a lorry driver. In 2009,

:22:14.:22:18.

he became seriously ill with emphysema, to the point where his

:22:18.:22:23.

wife was told to prepare for the worst. He pulled through, but his

:22:23.:22:29.

health is seriously affected. cannot walk far, 50 metres before I

:22:29.:22:34.

have to stop. I have to lean against something, catch my breath.

:22:34.:22:38.

Chris had his first work capability assessment in 2009. He was declared

:22:38.:22:43.

unfit for work and began claiming employment support allowance. But

:22:43.:22:47.

following a second assessment, he was declared fit for work and his

:22:47.:22:51.

benefit was stopped. He appealed the decision and went to a tribunal.

:22:51.:22:56.

He won his case and his benefits were reinstated. However, just

:22:56.:22:59.

seven months after that successful appeal, he was called back for yet

:22:59.:23:09.
:23:09.:23:14.

another assessment. We secretly Good to see you again. How are you?

:23:14.:23:19.

This morning, the results of that assessment have arrived. We cannot

:23:19.:23:24.

pay your employment and support an ounce from the 30th August 2012.

:23:24.:23:28.

says here because, after attending a medical assessment, it has been

:23:28.:23:32.

decided that you do not have any limited capability for work, which

:23:32.:23:38.

means you are fit for work. Yes. What is your reaction to that?

:23:38.:23:42.

I am shocked. It is just unbelievable, especially when he

:23:42.:23:45.

has had doctors' notes and consultant's notes to prove that he

:23:45.:23:51.

is definitely not fit for work. When I won my tribunal, I thought

:23:51.:23:56.

that would have been hit. Apparently it is not. You have to

:23:56.:24:00.

go for these medical assessments every year. But Chris's case is not

:24:00.:24:05.

unique. Each year there are in the region of 180,000 appeals, nearly

:24:05.:24:10.

40% of which are successful. Some think this number will only

:24:10.:24:15.

continue to rise. How big an issue is this for you at the moment?

:24:15.:24:21.

is a huge issue, our number one issue. Your number one issue?

:24:21.:24:25.

a cost to the public purse, it distress and hardship for the

:24:25.:24:29.

clients, and for an overstretched Citizens Advice Bureau, it is more

:24:29.:24:36.

work. And now Atos as won a further �400 million contract to carry out

:24:36.:24:39.

assessments for a new benefit set to replace disability living

:24:39.:24:45.

allowance from 2013. This has outraged disability groups, who

:24:45.:24:48.

have been demonstrating during the Paralympic Games. Ironically, one

:24:48.:24:53.

of the main sponsors of the Games was Atos. People are really angry

:24:53.:24:58.

and afraid about the new DNA assessments that will happen

:24:58.:25:01.

through Atos, because we have seen what has happened already with the

:25:01.:25:05.

incapacity benefit, which has now become the Employment Support

:25:05.:25:11.

Allowance. It has been quite horrific. Those of us were not been

:25:11.:25:14.

assessed already are not looking forward to it happening now, we are

:25:15.:25:18.

afraid, we are angry, and to be honest we are disgusted that it is

:25:18.:25:22.

happening at all. People who are on Disability living Allowance and now

:25:22.:25:26.

facing an anxious wait to see how the new assessments will play out

:25:26.:25:30.

for them. For Chris, it is back to the Citizens Advice, back to the

:25:30.:25:38.

appeals process, and back to a whole lot more distress.

:25:38.:25:42.

Well, Ade Adepitan is here, good job on the Paralympics. Did you

:25:42.:25:47.

enjoy it? It was amazing, I am feeling a little bit down now,

:25:47.:25:51.

because I have come back from the high, I wish it could go on forever,

:25:51.:25:56.

it was awesome. So much talking, slightly croaky and the boys!

:25:56.:26:01.

parties to celebrate as well. is as close as I will ever get to

:26:01.:26:06.

being Clare Balding. She is coming in next week! I am not going to say

:26:06.:26:15.

anything to that. First-half, tell us what Atos and the government

:26:15.:26:18.

have been saying today. Atos is keen to stress that while it

:26:19.:26:22.

carries out the tests, it is the Department of Work and Pensions

:26:23.:26:32.
:26:33.:26:33.

which makes the decisions. The DWP, when asked, they said reassessments

:26:33.:26:37.

were important to prevent claimants being written off. The tests have

:26:37.:26:41.

been improved in the last two years. For all of those who were not sure

:26:41.:26:44.

about these benefits, what difference do they make to the

:26:44.:26:50.

lives of people? Disability living allowance is for people with

:26:50.:26:54.

impairments or disability, to cover their care component and mobility

:26:54.:27:00.

costs as well. It is not about whether they are in work or not. It

:27:00.:27:04.

helps for travel costs, you know, because not everyone can get on a

:27:04.:27:08.

bus for a train, and it helps for the care component, for people with

:27:08.:27:13.

specific care needs. Is it right to say that some of the athletes who

:27:13.:27:16.

competed in the Paralympics might not have got there without the

:27:16.:27:21.

living allowance? It is difficult, because speaking from my point of

:27:21.:27:25.

view, when I was trying to get into the team, playing for my local team,

:27:25.:27:29.

it was quite far away, and the national team was far away, I could

:27:29.:27:34.

not get on to a bus or train with my equipment, so to have a car was

:27:34.:27:38.

absolutely essential. So yes, I am sure there are athletes who would

:27:39.:27:42.

say it would have drastically affected their ability to get into

:27:42.:27:48.

the Paralympics. The Paralympians have been branded a superhuman,

:27:48.:27:51.

there will be people who are concerned with disabilities, people

:27:51.:27:55.

might think they are capable of doing things that they are actually

:27:55.:27:59.

not. People think that because we call an superhumans, they can fly

:27:59.:28:03.

and stuff like that. They will have got the wrong idea, the reason we

:28:03.:28:08.

called them that is because there archives will have got serious

:28:08.:28:13.

impairments who are doing amazing things. But they are very specific

:28:13.:28:18.

things, they are things on the basketball court or on track and

:28:18.:28:24.

field. But they still need help with travel expenses, and also with

:28:24.:28:30.

care needs, because it is the fact that living as a disabled person

:28:30.:28:35.

can cost more. Thank you very much. The British Gas and oil industry

:28:35.:28:40.

has recently said it is looking for 120,000 new workers to realise its

:28:40.:28:44.

full potential. A lot of that potential is buried under places

:28:44.:28:48.

like the North Sea, and Marty Jopson has been to look at the

:28:48.:28:58.
:28:58.:28:59.

latest tools used to find and This is crude oil. You'd think it

:28:59.:29:04.

would be thick and gloopy. But it's often thin and runy. It's a

:29:05.:29:09.

precious commodity made from the most basic of sea plants and

:29:09.:29:16.

creatures, plankton. Plankton absorbs carbon dioxide, dies and

:29:16.:29:20.

begins breaking down. Some are buried under layers of saidiment

:29:20.:29:24.

where they are locked in a partially decomposed state. Over

:29:24.:29:29.

millions of years the heat and pressure caused by layers of

:29:29.:29:34.

saidiment above them forces liquids and gases out of the remains to be

:29:34.:29:38.

trapped in the pours in the rock. It may have taken thousands of

:29:38.:29:42.

millions of years in the making, but it's a finite resource and all

:29:43.:29:47.

over the world, the race is on to find new areas of oil. I'm joining

:29:47.:29:52.

a crew of a seismic exploration ship off the coast of Norway.

:29:53.:29:57.

Before they can drill for oil they have to pin point exactly where it

:29:57.:30:01.

is. That's what they're doing right now. They use special guns to fire

:30:01.:30:06.

high pressure air bubbles into the water deep into the sea. They

:30:06.:30:09.

generate low frequency sound waves which bounce back as echoes. Just

:30:09.:30:15.

like taking a massive ultra-sound of the rock structure. The only

:30:15.:30:19.

evidence on board of what's happening below is a slight shudder

:30:19.:30:23.

and bubbles breaking the water's surface. From this data, they make

:30:23.:30:29.

images, which are then sold to speculating oil companies. Geophys

:30:29.:30:34.

sift Matt shows me one snapshot that turned out to be very

:30:34.:30:37.

lucrative. This is a vertical seismic image under the North Sea.

:30:37.:30:42.

What are you looking for? These cross cutting reflections. So this

:30:42.:30:48.

is oil here? This is is. How much? About two billion barrels.

:30:48.:30:53.

billion barrels of oil - wow! That's a lot. What's that worth?

:30:53.:30:57.

$200 billion. How much has it cost to get out of the ground? There are

:30:57.:31:01.

different costs. In the North Sea the water is relatively shallow. So

:31:01.:31:07.

it may be just �50 million. If you go into deep water, you may be

:31:07.:31:11.

looking at �100 million or more. this industry, production costs are

:31:11.:31:18.

high. But the profits are huge. But finding the oil is only half the

:31:18.:31:22.

battle. The next problem is getting it out. Crude oil spbtd sitting

:31:22.:31:28.

under ground in great big lakes. It's far more complex than that.

:31:28.:31:34.

Imagine that this is our oil down deep under ground. The oil is held

:31:34.:31:38.

there because there's an impermeable layer of rock it can't

:31:38.:31:42.

get through or in my case, it's a pop bottle. This is what happens

:31:42.:31:52.
:31:52.:31:55.

when you drill through the There you go. The oil comes

:31:55.:32:03.

flooding out. Oh, but then it stops, unless you pump more pressure down,

:32:03.:32:10.

like this. I will attach my bike pump. Then if I pump more pressure

:32:10.:32:16.

in, I get more oil out. What the engineers do is rather than using a

:32:16.:32:20.

bicycle bump they push water and gas into the rocks to push more of

:32:20.:32:25.

the oil out. But even using these traditional methods of drilling,

:32:25.:32:31.

you'll only get about 35% of the oil. The Government reckons

:32:31.:32:36.

extracting just 1% more would be worth around �13 billion. That is

:32:36.:32:40.

the challenge facing the country's oil scientists. One idea they've

:32:40.:32:44.

come up with involves removing salt from sea water and flushing it into

:32:44.:32:53.

the rock. Low sn olenity water running is better at getting the

:32:53.:32:58.

crude out because it breaks the rock's ability to hold onto it.

:32:58.:33:06.

There will be the first world implementation of the flood. About

:33:06.:33:10.

another 42 million barrels out of the oil field. The industry hope

:33:10.:33:15.

it's will recover enough oil to meet our demands until 2050. The

:33:15.:33:19.

Government's more cautious estimate is 2030. One thing is for sure, oil

:33:19.:33:24.

is a finite resource. When it does run out, we'll have to rely on

:33:24.:33:30.

alternatives to fuel our world. Well, Rip Off Britain is back on

:33:30.:33:35.

BBC One to help consumers avoid making costly mistakes and as

:33:35.:33:37.

always, Angela Rippon, Gloria Hunniford and Julia Somerville are

:33:37.:33:43.

willing to ask the tough questions on your behalf. We wanted answers

:33:43.:33:49.

to the problems you've raised. I don't think I have to tell you of

:33:49.:33:52.

all people that the reputation of bankers in this country is now in

:33:52.:33:57.

taters. When you go to a party and someone asks what you do, would you

:33:57.:34:01.

be embarrassed to admit you're a banker? I think it's regretful that

:34:01.:34:04.

you would think twice about admitting that you were a banker. I

:34:04.:34:08.

would like to think I'm a banker trying to make a difference and

:34:08.:34:12.

trying to change across the industry and restore that faith and

:34:12.:34:16.

trustment Well, ange la, you're not pulling any punches there. We can't

:34:16.:34:20.

in our programme. I don't think anyone in the country would agree

:34:20.:34:25.

that the bankers have got to be held to account. Not just bankers.

:34:25.:34:29.

Doing the programme, we're out every day for four weeks, we've

:34:29.:34:34.

done 20 programmes that go out 9.15am on BBC One, so there are

:34:34.:34:37.

about 100 stories, everything from banks who have lost people's money,

:34:38.:34:43.

prom lems with insurance, dodgy car dealers - you name it we've covered

:34:43.:34:46.

those stories where people have been ripped off or fobbed off by

:34:46.:34:50.

companies that really decide actually, no, we're not going to be

:34:50.:34:54.

nice to you and we're not going to give your money back. So the

:34:54.:34:58.

reality is, the force is with you. What are the biggest rip offs

:34:58.:35:02.

you've seen in the new series? There's a lot of before in terms of

:35:02.:35:07.

energy. It's one of the biggest issues. You can't say well I won't

:35:07.:35:13.

have any electric or gas this week. And we're going heavy on small

:35:13.:35:19.

print. We all make mistakes. I wrote this down, for PayPal there

:35:19.:35:25.

are 36,000 words in the terms and conditions alone. 36,000?! It's

:35:25.:35:30.

longer than hamlet for the record. You go to the end and you click.

:35:30.:35:37.

It's just under 20,000 for I choose and Facebook is 11,000. Who will

:35:37.:35:45.

read all the terms and kbz. -- conditions. One small thing a

:35:45.:35:49.

couple on holiday, they've saved up for months on the holiday to

:35:49.:35:53.

Florida. They ended up that they were insured on their policy for

:35:53.:35:57.

the journey out, and for their holiday, not for the journey back.

:35:57.:36:00.

When they were diverted to New York and the snowstorm or something like

:36:00.:36:04.

that, they had to pay all the expenses. Have you to read the

:36:04.:36:07.

small print. I actually can't read small print any more. You can't

:36:07.:36:17.

read! If anyone tunes in now, will they think we're the Corrs? You can

:36:17.:36:24.

do the singing darling. Which are you then? I'm the bloke! Are you

:36:24.:36:29.

good at explaining Frank? I'm not bad. I went out with an American

:36:29.:36:33.

and she was so brilliant at complaining. I learned from her. We

:36:33.:36:37.

were in a restaurants. She complained about someone's food on

:36:37.:36:43.

another table. She heard the woman saying, this meat's tough. Her

:36:43.:36:48.

boyfriend said tell them. No, no it's too embarrassing,. She stopped

:36:48.:36:53.

the waitress, "Excuse me this lady's got tough meat." She should

:36:53.:36:58.

join us on Rip Off Britain. We complain on behalf of other people.

:36:58.:37:03.

We check into a hotel. I didn't even bother to take my coat off

:37:03.:37:07.

because I knew we'd be in three rooms before we settled.

:37:07.:37:10.

Americans are very good at complaining. Are you surprised with

:37:10.:37:14.

some of the things that people fall for? Well, in a way, yes. I mean,

:37:14.:37:19.

if you're well I was going to say stupid enough, perhaps I shouldn't,

:37:19.:37:22.

if you're gullible enough to pack all your jewellery into an envelope

:37:22.:37:26.

and send it through the post to someone who says they may give you

:37:26.:37:30.

money for it, I think that is perhaps a little bit on the stupid

:37:30.:37:34.

side. But on the other hand, there's no doubt about the fact

:37:34.:37:38.

that people are becoming incredibly cunning. We've had stories of

:37:38.:37:42.

people being rung up pretending to be your bank, telling you that

:37:42.:37:47.

somebody's using your credit card, persuading the person to part with

:37:47.:37:51.

the credit card, persuading them to part with their PIN number, sending

:37:51.:37:54.

a courier round, telling the person to ring the number on the back of

:37:54.:37:57.

the card, keeping the line open without the person knowing and

:37:57.:38:01.

making the person think it's all completely right. There really are

:38:01.:38:05.

people out there... We had one of them the other day. My wife was on

:38:05.:38:10.

the line and I heard her say, look I don't know who you are, I'm not

:38:10.:38:13.

giving you my details right now?. That's the value of consume

:38:13.:38:18.

prorgraems. What we do through the scam plz -- consumer programmes,

:38:18.:38:24.

what we do is it gives people at home because our viewers identify

:38:24.:38:28.

with the people on the programme. It's warning people of the rip offs

:38:28.:38:32.

out there. More than, that we entertain, it's telly, but we

:38:32.:38:36.

empower people. We inform them about how they can actually stand

:38:36.:38:40.

up for their rights and either not get into those difficulties in the

:38:40.:38:45.

first place or know how they can get out of it. Why the programme is

:38:45.:38:48.

so successful is that they are genuine stories from viewers. It's

:38:48.:38:52.

real people, real stories, real results. That's why it works. We

:38:52.:38:57.

don't rip it from a newspaper report or something. 23,000 e-mails

:38:57.:39:02.

after the last series. I can't even tell you how many... 20,000 from

:39:02.:39:05.

Nigeria! LAUGHTER

:39:05.:39:08.

Any company or any individual with half a brain is not going to mess

:39:08.:39:13.

with you three. The new series of Rip Off Britain continues tomorrow

:39:13.:39:18.

at 9.15am on BBC One. Now, Frank, loads and loads of arguments

:39:18.:39:21.

obviously coming from our viewers. Speaking of arguments, we think

:39:21.:39:26.

we've found somebody who knows how to argue incredibly well. It's Anne

:39:26.:39:30.

Robinson. She's joining us live from the watchdog studio. What's

:39:30.:39:33.

the biggest argument you can remember getting into over

:39:33.:39:37.

something very small? I can't remember any argument with anybody.

:39:37.:39:43.

Honestly! I think misguidedly people think I'm going to be a bit

:39:44.:39:48.

difficult or shout at them or be unpleasant. So I genuinely never

:39:48.:39:51.

get into arguments. Whoever said you know you have to have that

:39:51.:39:55.

expression of don't mess with me, that's absolutely right. Hopefully

:39:55.:39:59.

you'll be winning plenty of arguments on behalf of the watchdog

:39:59.:40:02.

viewers. We hear that you need the help of the One Show viewers

:40:02.:40:07.

tonight. Yes indeed I do. Listen out, it's calling all BMW owners,

:40:07.:40:13.

this is a tale you shouldn't miss because thieves can get into your

:40:13.:40:17.

car, it's like a walk in the park. It's now so easy to get hold of a

:40:17.:40:21.

piece of equipment from the internet that bypasses the BMW's

:40:21.:40:24.

security system and your car can be driven off within seconds, no need

:40:24.:40:28.

for your key. It's happening up and down the country. BMW have known

:40:28.:40:33.

about it for nearly a year, but we can't find a single owner who's

:40:33.:40:36.

been warned. It sounds extraordinary this case. Has there

:40:36.:40:40.

been many of these thefts? There's been enough thefts for police in

:40:40.:40:44.

the Midlands and also in London to be now alerting owners to take

:40:44.:40:48.

extra precautions. But to get the exact figure we want viewers

:40:48.:40:51.

watching The One Show now to help. If any of you have a BMW that's

:40:51.:40:56.

been stolen in the last year, please send us an e-mail before we

:40:56.:41:01.

go on air, in about 20 minutes. The address is on the screen now.

:41:01.:41:09.

Thanks guys. Thank you. There are you, do as Ann asks. Now then...

:41:09.:41:16.

you had an argument with Ann, she'd say "That's it, I'm leaving.

:41:16.:41:22.

Goodbye." Frank has a new sitcom starting tonight all about arguing

:41:22.:41:26.

couples. He's going to settle long running arguments once and for all.

:41:26.:41:31.

We have a couple in the studio. Yes. Matt is going to intervues you to

:41:31.:41:35.

them. This is Antony and Tia. We said hello earlier today. You're

:41:35.:41:40.

kind to come along tonight. This is all about mess. Start with you. Why

:41:40.:41:46.

is Antony so bad? He just keeps his trainers all over the flat and

:41:46.:41:50.

every time when I get up or go somewhere I'm always tripping over

:41:50.:41:54.

them and he's got a place for them under the stairs, but no he doesn't

:41:54.:42:02.

use it. When I open it I get a whoof of smelly feet. It's the

:42:02.:42:06.

trainer thing. Do you feel like she stitches you up slightly by

:42:06.:42:10.

creating a space under the stairs? I don't think it's true actually.

:42:10.:42:15.

My shoes don't smell that bad. Yeah I think it is a bit of a stitch up.

:42:15.:42:19.

I like to have them displayed. When people come round... Look at the

:42:19.:42:25.

trainers? I'm a collector you see. Right. I have quite a few pairs.

:42:25.:42:30.

That would make sense why people would want to lock at your shoes.

:42:30.:42:35.

Why not. This is going on and on. When he picks his toenails, his

:42:35.:42:39.

clippings they make a horrible noise and go everywhere. It's

:42:39.:42:43.

interesting Frank because toenails are included in the second series.

:42:43.:42:47.

Yes, they have caused many an argument. Once you clip a toenail

:42:47.:42:53.

there's no telling where it can ends un. I sometimes hand out

:42:53.:42:58.

goggles. People are having their tea. I'm sorry. They're talking

:42:58.:43:01.

about sweaty trainers. These trainers are incubating under the

:43:01.:43:08.

stairs. It's not good. They need some air. Whose side are you on?

:43:08.:43:13.

Who wins? I think that this man is a collector and he has to have

:43:13.:43:17.

somewhere to keep his collection. I don't imagine for a second that he

:43:17.:43:20.

discovered trainers after their relationship, so she knew what she

:43:20.:43:25.

was letting herself in for. Fair enough. A sporting victory. Loads

:43:25.:43:31.

of them have come in. Saffron says "We were playing aye spy on the

:43:31.:43:35.

beach, can you win with a word tide because I say you kpbtd because you

:43:35.:43:40.

can't actually see the tide but my husband said you can." You can see

:43:40.:43:44.

the tide can't you. That's what the frothy stuff is that hits the beach.

:43:44.:43:53.

I would have thought soment Frank says so, that's it. Can I put

:43:53.:43:59.

my judging stuff on. The full works. Now people will tune in and think

:43:59.:44:04.

Peter string fellow is on. If you cut a sandwich in half, how many

:44:04.:44:11.

sandwiches do you have. Men say one, I say two. Party sandwiches small

:44:11.:44:17.

triangles, surely each is a separate sandwich? No every small

:44:17.:44:23.

piece of bread that leaves is a sandwich in itself. If you cut a

:44:23.:44:27.

piece of bread into eight, that's eight sandwiches. This evening

spent a bit of time out of the water, but I am proud of her, she

:44:47.:44:52.

is really pushing hard and doing all right. I am going to have to

:44:52.:45:02.

encourage her. Come on, sweetheart, push, push! Come on, Lucy! That is

:45:02.:45:06.

a couple always pick up. I would quite like to say this throughout

:45:06.:45:16.
:45:16.:45:24.

there, you look brilliant. I fit in Oh, Classic! Time to continue the

:45:24.:45:28.

story from last night of a retired British teacher who travelled to

:45:28.:45:33.

India to meet the children she has been teaching from her home near

Oldham through the wonders of the internet.

have never even met. -- whose pupils live. That is about to

looks like something out of a When I am at home, obviously it is

there has to imagine outside the little room that they Skype me from.

:46:21.:46:26.

I certainly have not seen where the children live, so it is being able

:46:26.:46:36.
:46:36.:46:37.

to put it into that wider context, It is monsoon season here in Pune,

a booming city of 4 million people, renowned for its colleges and

:46:42.:46:52.
:46:52.:46:53.

universities and a beacon for the After a good night's sleep and

:46:53.:46:56.

breakfast Indian-style, Jackie has had the perfect start to an

:46:56.:47:02.

exciting day ahead. We are actually on our way to meet the children, so

:47:02.:47:06.

we are driving through the streets of Pune. When I first got involved

:47:07.:47:10.

in the project, if I had said what would have been the most exciting

:47:10.:47:16.

thing to do ever, it would have been to come out and meet the

:47:16.:47:22.

children that High Speed 2 over Skype. With over 400 million

:47:22.:47:24.

children living in India, the education system is coming under

:47:24.:47:28.

increasing strain. 7 million children do not attend school at

:47:28.:47:33.

all. But a helping hand comes from schools like this one, where

:47:33.:47:38.

Jackie's group come to get online. We are going to meet face to face,

:47:38.:47:41.

which is really strange! I do not quite know what they are going to

:47:41.:47:51.
:47:51.:48:04.

make of it, and I am feeling very Just that first walking in, I was

:48:04.:48:08.

not too sure how they were going to react, but that only lasted for a

:48:08.:48:13.

very short time, I felt at ease with them and able to enjoy it.

:48:13.:48:23.

Let's check I know everybody's name. What is your name? Thank you! You

:48:23.:48:33.
:48:33.:48:40.

Let's swim! What was this one? Chickens! I have presence for you.

:48:40.:48:46.

did not remember, I don't think, how much I enjoyed interacting with

children. Can you help me to tell the story? One day, he went out in

It was just great to be in the same room with them and be able to pick

was the sense of being able to do this and not being scolded. --

ultimately. Pretending I am a good kicking somebody! The other thing

:49:38.:49:44.

that I noticed was that they were trying very hard not to imitate the

:49:44.:49:49.

words but also the accent. It will make a huge difference when I speak

:49:49.:49:54.

to them next time on Skype that I have actually met them. I will feel

:49:54.:49:58.

much more able to interpret how much they are understanding and how

they are reacting to something. first session in India has been a

But the next part of Jackie's trip will be much more challenging. She

is going to visit some of the children's homes. To take a 12-

:50:17.:50:21.

year-old girl out of school, from a child's point of view, it is so

wrong that she should have no access to education.

:50:38.:50:42.

and I taught English in a school for a day, and in fact I just came

:50:42.:50:46.

back on Monday, we have made another trip, so I went back to the

:50:46.:50:50.

school again. Did you see a difference? Yes, and the lovely

:50:50.:50:55.

thing... Their I am! The thing I discovered was that these children

:50:55.:50:59.

are like sponges, they cannot wait to have that information, the

English language, because they know that being able to speak good

living in the slum, it is their way out to fulfil their ambitions.

:51:11.:51:16.

a great idea. So rewarding, I cannot tell you. Earlier we saw

:51:16.:51:19.

Ainsley Harriott trying to create a thank you feast for a very brave

:51:19.:51:24.

man from Cheshire. Even though he is having some trouble with his

:51:24.:51:26.

kitchen, Ainsley and the locals are determined to make it a meal to

:51:26.:51:30.

remember. Peter Dodd is a hero who stepped in

:51:30.:51:34.

to protect an elderly customer who was being threatened by thieves,

:51:34.:51:43.

wielding machetes during a raid on his post office. Put your card in...

:51:43.:51:47.

He has been busy in the post office all day and does not have a clue

:51:47.:51:51.

what is going on in the pub up the road. To thank him for his bravery,

:51:51.:51:56.

we are organising a big feast, and outdoor extravaganza with all his

:51:56.:51:59.

friends invited. I have not been able to do it without the support

:51:59.:52:03.

from the Cheshire community, they have come up with the most

:52:03.:52:07.

fantastic ingredients, thank you! It has been seat-of-the-pants stuff

:52:07.:52:15.

so far. We lost the gas and water, because of the building works.

:52:15.:52:22.

Luckily, we get reconnected. My appeal on the radio for supplies of

:52:22.:52:26.

food has worked better than I expected. Supplies just keep on

:52:26.:52:35.

arriving. What have we got here? range of Japanese. Beautiful!

:52:35.:52:42.

You're an absolute diamond. I will tell you what I have got here, a

:52:42.:52:46.

beautiful piece of pork, thermometer in mayor now, cooking

:52:46.:52:52.

fantastic. When he sees this, look at that! With the help of my

:52:52.:52:56.

adopted kitchen staff, the feast is coming together brilliantly, the

:52:56.:52:59.

asparagus and tomatoes have been turned into wonderful salads, and

:52:59.:53:04.

the meat has been prepared to perfection. All right, a bit of a

:53:04.:53:07.

hurry now, getting everything done. Less than an hour to go, they still

:53:07.:53:13.

an awful lot of work to do in the marquee. BASSA there is still. We

:53:13.:53:18.

have managed to keep the party a secret so far, but it has been

:53:18.:53:21.

welcome news to Margaret, who has rarely left home since the post

:53:21.:53:29.

office raid. I have not been out, I am just terrified. I heard about

:53:29.:53:34.

his party, and I thought, well, I would like to be there, because he

:53:34.:53:44.

is the person that saved me, As our brass band arrives, I am

:53:44.:53:48.

told our guest of honour is on the way. He thinks we are just having a

:53:48.:53:52.

quiet meal together to talk about his bravery in the post office.

:53:52.:53:57.

Little does he know! Nice to meet you. How are you doing? I have been

:53:57.:54:03.

waiting all day for this. Boy, is the end for a surprise! Peter, all

:54:03.:54:13.
:54:13.:54:16.

of this is for you. Come on, let's I give you your hero, Peter Dodd,

:54:16.:54:26.

He says to me, I am just a postmaster, he is more than that,

:54:26.:54:36.
:54:36.:54:44.

Margaret, you might not have been I think he is a very important role

:54:44.:54:48.

model within the village, with him being the postmaster, he knows

:54:48.:54:53.

everybody and everybody knows him, and what he did was fantastic.

:54:53.:54:57.

is an amazing man, a good example of what is good about our community,

:54:57.:55:01.

one of these people that is always doing things for other people, they

:55:01.:55:09.

tend to not expect people to do things for them. There we are, a

:55:09.:55:13.

nice bit of crackling. And so on were the feast, and due to his

:55:13.:55:18.

unselfish nature, Peter insists everyone else is served first. Are

:55:18.:55:22.

you going to have a bit of this? At last, time to give him his well-

:55:22.:55:32.
:55:32.:55:34.

earned feet. Oh, lovely! It was a special moment. I have never been

:55:34.:55:41.

so gobsmacked in my life! They said she will not talk to anybody or go

:55:41.:55:49.

out, but she is having a good time. It has been one of those days that

:55:49.:55:54.

has been full of drama, a bit of panic, but all of us together, we

:55:54.:55:59.

might just have pulled it off. Brilliant. Isn't that lovely? What

:55:59.:56:05.

a lovely man. Time to go back to the racing in St Mawes now, how is

:56:05.:56:11.

the race going? I am trying not to laugh, because to begin with Lizzie

:56:11.:56:16.

was all smiles, but now all I can see his teeth. She is doing quite

:56:16.:56:21.

well, in about six, only five votes behind her. I think she has done

:56:21.:56:26.

very well. If I'm honest, the oar has come out of the water a few

:56:26.:56:30.

times, but she is not disgracing herself. My only worry is that if

:56:30.:56:35.

she does not hurry up, we will run out of light and petrol, and I have

:56:35.:56:40.

his say, it has been emotional, and I have got my jacket on specially.

:56:40.:56:47.

The winner has finished, she has done so well. How far has she got

:56:47.:56:53.

to go? She is in sixth position, six out of 11 boats, she has done

:56:53.:56:56.

very well indeed. She will be moaning all night that their arms

:56:56.:57:01.

or saw, but she has done the One Show proud. Brilliant, yes, and

:57:01.:57:05.

hopefully she will finish while we are on air. We will let you know.

:57:05.:57:09.

What is your biggest sporting achievement? This will not take

:57:09.:57:16.

long. I learned to swim the earlier in the year, and for me that was an

:57:17.:57:22.

enormous achievement. I did it for Sport Relief. That is me, looking

:57:22.:57:27.

good! Yes, and I swam a length and got a proper certificate and

:57:27.:57:32.

everything. I have been frightened of water and my whole life. Are you

:57:32.:57:38.

a regular swimmer now? I have not taken my son yet. He has got to

:57:38.:57:43.

have jams or something like that. You are only just out of arm bands

:57:43.:57:47.

yourself. You can still see the lines. I'm going to take him, I did

:57:47.:57:52.

not want to be a dad who could not swim. At least you will stay in the

:57:52.:57:57.

shallow end for a while. It is brilliant, just floating about. I

:57:57.:58:00.

have no experience of weightlessness, it is great,

:58:01.:58:05.

because I was not involved in the space race. There was a

:58:05.:58:10.

misunderstanding. You have got a special coming up as well. Yes, we

:58:10.:58:15.

are anxious for everyone to know about this special week-long series

:58:15.:58:18.

later in the air about holidays, and we have not made it yet, and we

:58:18.:58:23.

are hoping that anybody who has horror stories about their holidays,

:58:23.:58:28.

travel agents, airlines, hotels full of cockroaches, whatever it is.

:58:28.:58:34.

Let us know. Everybody has got one. Can I just so quickly that in this

:58:34.:58:38.

year alone we have managed to pay back half a million pounds to

:58:38.:58:41.

people? Ordinary they would not have got that back, fighting

:58:41.:58:45.

insurance companies. I think that is pretty good. Thank you for

:58:45.:58:49.

coming along, all the very best with the series, tonight on Radio 4

:58:49.:58:53.

Matt and Alex are joined by Frank Skinner and Rip Off Britain's Gloria Hunniford, Angela Rippon and Julia Somerville. We're live in Cornwall, where local rowers are battling Team GB's medal winners in a unique race, and there's a special treat in store for a heroic Cheshire postmaster.
