Hello, and welcome to The One Show, with Kevin Duala...
It was fantastic! We had the best welcome and the best fish and chips!
It was like a 9.5, 9.9 out of ten. I thought you were going for a classy
burger? The first thing I have won on The One Show ever, Matt was
furious! First time in the hot
seat for you, Kev. And you're in luck, because tonight
we've got a massive guest. Some might say he's
a magnificent beast. He's towered over everyone he meets,
has entertained the masses over the years, and is currently
preparing to go on tour. Is it Dippy the Dinosaur
from the Natural History Museum? APPLAUSE
Hi, Greg, you all right? Fabulous. Nice to see you. You
couldn't guess it was me when I'd been sitting here all along, Kevin!
Play along! It was drama, Greg, that was acting, of course!
of Dippy's replacement, Hope, the blue whale,
and he'll be meeting the public from tomorrow.
The whale has been given the name Hope as a "symbol
of humanity's power to shape a sustainable future".
Greg, you've chosen a meaningful name for your forthcoming tour -
A meaningful name, might hope. Your tour has an equally meaningful name.
And I have been called Hope before! You have gone for You Magnificent
Beast! Go one... Y?! What the inspiration? The truth is, I was in
London and I got in a taxi. A really drunk student saw me and ran and
jumped through the open window of my taxi and grabbed me by the collars
and went, oh, You Magnificent Beast! And then he just fell away! Male or
female? Mail! I thought, that's it, that's my show title by an! And
there's a good story to go with it, perfect. Why a young man would want
to call me a magnificent beast, I don't know, but I'm delighted! Have
I ever told you the story of the topless picture of me? I wasn't
allowed to put it on Amazon because it broke bendable policy! -- it
broke their Nepal policy. I can say nipple on The One Show?! You've
already said it many times! Do you find that when you are in a taxi you
wind up the windows so that people don't throw themselves at you? It
hasn't happened again, but thank you to that young man!
We'll be talking about your fourth series of Man Down later, too.
And we have a surprise for you as well...
I would advise you, start getting a little bit nervous... Oh, I did
expect that an The One Show! Tonight we're launching our
One Show Phone Plan, According to exclusive statistics
provided to us by Deloitte, 15.5 million of us think
we use our phones too much. And last week, even Prince Harry
said that young people should try to take a break
from checking their mobiles So we've been asking
for your suggestions on how we can all achieve
a better phone-life balance. You haven't let us down, thanks for
sending them on. We've had loads in, including this
sign on the school gates sent in by Gail from Witney -
"Greet your child with Rhyming and everything! It's like
the start of a little rap song, isn't it?! Not a great one! We can
give it a go... # Greet your Child with a smile
# Not a mobile! #. I won't be part of this, Kevin!
And the Smiths showed us about the way they deal
with excessive phone use in their house - confiscate all
Our plan is made up of the best suggestions we've had,
and the Farnworth family are going to be the first to try it
Like many families up and down the country, the Farnworths family from
Bolton Lancashire were worried that no news was getting out of hand.
What are you doing? I'm reading the news. I do don't know where it's
going, and I don't like it. When we asked them to monitor their mobile
use over one weekend, the results truly shocking. You spent 32 hours
on your phones. GASPS
That's over a day! So they've currently agreed to by our guinea
pigs and test out the one shown Phone Plan for a whole week to see
if the suggestions that you have come up with can really help them
get the perfect phone- life balance. Although, until I present it to them
on this giant smartphone, of course, they have really no idea how far
they will be asked to go. Hello! Is managed to negotiate you an update!
As you know, this isn't about stopping using your phones
altogether. It's about reducing the amount of time you spend on your
phone. How are you feeling about plummeting these recommendations?
Not very good! The first suggestion that has made it onto our plan was a
popular one. Turn off notifications. Make sure that all notifications and
are turned off of your mobile, just leaving the ring turned on. Every
time it goes off, you spend log on your mobile. I think turning the
notifications offers a really good idea. Turn of the notifications. I'm
going to turn all of them off. Come on! Stop it, Jake, give it to me!
OK, for the next one, follow me into the hole. Next onto the list, you
suggested that every household should have a central charging
point. And that means you're not going to be looking at your phones
while it is an charge. So you spend a bit less time on your phone. And
it takes you back to the old days when you use have one phone in the
whole house, and it was in the hallway. The third suggestion was
the most. Keep mealtimes phone free. It gives us a chance to catch up on
the day, and to sort out any problems that we might have. And to
really make sure you're not tempted to check your devices... Put them
all in a bowl. The first person to get their phone gets to do the
family chores for the next week! LAUGHTER
I think this will do. Four, in order to get a proper night's sleep, don't
take your phones to bed. Because the blue light, you are bound to wake
up, actually. We've got to give it a go, we have. We have two. If you
worried about your kids sneaking their phones into bed without you
noticing, you can always follow suggestion number five. Turn off the
Wi-Fi. As long as you keep them on a low data bundle. Six, my personal
pet hate. Don't check your phone whilst chatting. If you want to talk
to some the end they pick their phone up, you think, oh... I think
it depends. Sometimes they might be having a conversation about
something that doesn't interest you, it's really boring. Thanks very
much, Jake! Meet up with friends in person instead of sending them
messages... You might realise who your real friends are, perhaps these
are people that he would make friends with. Something tells me
this is all getting a bit too much for super SnapChat user Grace. Is a
vague friendships. These are not real friends. Friends are people you
have a coffee with or go for a walk with. Number eight, stroll without
looking at your screen, Jacob! We're going to send you on a family walk,
when none of you has a mobile phone with you, so that you can enjoy the
sights and the company. I think that's a really good idea.
Suggestion number nine is one for mum and dad. Phone free date night.
Geis! Last, but by no means least, if all else fails, implement the
final selection. Turn off the phones for a whole day. My grandchildren
have much more thundering things together, and it helps their
communication skills as well -- have much more on doing things together
at. That's quite manageable. I think I'd go mad. There's no other way to
describe it. There you have it, The One Show ten point Phone Plan.
There's no excuses, Grace, for missing out on any of these. Will
the family stick to it for a whole week over the summer and will it
reduce their phone use? I can't wait to find out! You might find if
you're not on it all the time that there are other things that you do
which are more enriching to your life.
I'll tell you what, Grace didn't look too happy. I can understand
why, frankly! Tommy is here with us -
or Technical Tommy, He's been elevated. Technical
telephone Tommy, I'm elevating myself! This could change
everybody's lives, this ten point plan. We want everyone to give this
a go. There are loads of apps out there that you can download onto
your phone which will help you monitor how much you use your phone.
If you download these free apps, things like quality time, break
free. A phone app to stop you from using your phone! This is what I
said earlier! It is like the app to end all other apps. It will tell you
that you are only using your phone at night or in the day or WhatsApp
or whatever it is that you were doing. You find out where you are
overly using your phone and then you can reclaim your life. So, which of
these are you going to implement, Alex? How many of these do you think
you can get a go? This is our One Show Phone Plan. You can do all of
those, Alex! No, I'm not turning off notifications or having a central
charge point! You go a lot more Welsh when you get defensive! I
don't even notice myself! OK, I'll do no phone mealtimes because I
think it's rude to have a phone on the table. I won't take the phone to
bed, I've started doing that for the last week. And I sleep a lot better,
actually. I'm not unplugging the Wi-Fi, no. I will go for a walk
without my phone, at a push. Device free date night, that's a good one.
No... I'm joking! We'll try that, yes. Greg, could you do any of
those? Not at the moment, I'm as addicted as anybody else to my
phone. I would put this is my number one thing. I would like to stop
sending myself messages to remind myself of things! I do this
everyday, I sent myself a message, remember to do this. The message
comes through and I go, message! Everyday! Send yourself a message
that says, don't use your phone so much. Then we can reclaim our lives.
It is a good idea because it is getting out of hand. The audience
don't have to do all of these. Do some of them and let us note. We
want everybody to get in touch over the summer. If you go on holiday and
give any of these a goat. Don't ring us! -- if any of these a go. You can
e-mail us. It would be so lovely to hear from the people who are having
a go, actually, we had much more quality time together, it was great.
Thanks, Tommy, we will let you know how the Farnworths got on over the
summer. Something that had millions
of people glued to their screens back in 1980 was the siege
of the Iranian Embassy, You watched it too,
didn't you, Greg? I did watch it, Alex. I was 12. I
was one. Why do? -- you made me feel awful! I didn't mean to!
The story has been brought to life in a new film set
for release later this summer, and Lucy's been to meet
How old were you, Kev?! Why have you taken hostages inside the embassy...
Because we have to get what we want. April 1980, and a six-day siege has
the country gripped to its TV screens. It began when six Arab
Iranian gunmen wanting sovereignty in the southern region of a province
stormed the embassy. They took 25 hostages and they said they will
start killing them if their demands were not met. Look, we are ready...
6 Days of negotiations keep them alive. But on the sixth day, one is
killed. That's when the SAS are ordered to go in. Millions watched
the events unfold live on television. Viewers could only
imagine what was taking place inside the embassy. A new film, 6 Days,
starring Jamie Bell, tells the story of the raid through the eyes of the
SAS troopers. Tell your government, one more day, and we begin shooting
them. We know those images of the news footage, so iconic, these men
coming down. But we've never been inside the building, we've never
been with those people during that time in that moment. And that's what
the film does, it opens doors and gives you access to things that you
wouldn't normally have access to. I felt as a film experience, it kind
of let you go behind the scenes in the way, this is something that is
kind of heralded in British history. The Prime Minister wants the world
and the British people to see how this government deals with
terrorism. Jamie plays Rusty Fuhrman, leader of one of the
assault teams. The film-makers wanted the film to be so authentic
they asked Rusty to give Jamie some SAS training. We had a lot of things
in common to start with. He is from the North of England, I'm from the
north Ringwood. He's 30 now, I was 30 when I did the siege. Rusty says
he had to teach you to be him. What did you learn? Rusty was very
specific about certain things. He wanted the pistol to be a certain
way. The way I had my finger on the trigger, all of that kind of stuff.
He was very specific about it. More than anything, it was about trying
to get rid of my dancing feet. I would do this thing with my feet all
the time, and he wasn't into that. Rusty, what did you make of Jamie's
performance of you? Getting him to become the, getting him to play
Rusty, he learned very quickly, and in the end, what you see on the
screen is just an too hard work and dedication. This is his memory, this
is his legacy, his friends who were with him. So if it is important to
him than it is important to me. Jamie Lovemark and just how to act
the part. He discovered just how much of a formidable force the SAS
actually are -- Jamie Lund more. The tactic is to overwhelm
aggressively and never stop moving. Once they gain momentum they never
stop until it's done. It works. It puts the opponent in a submissive
state. It is very frightening. I would imagine a lot of those
hostages who were in there were terrified, as terrified as the
gunmen who had held hostage for six days. It is a film about good guys
and bad guys and that distinction is not very clear. The SAS is an
aggressive counter-terrorism group. It is difficult to embody them as
good guys in a way because the truth is six men armed with weapons
entered the building and then six days later a lot of other men armed
with weapons entered that building. I did not want to over glorify these
men because they are taking lives. Few had heard of the SAS but at this
precise moment... They would become one of the most recognised military
forces in the world. That looks like a brilliant film.
Look out for 6 Days in cinemas later this summer.
Man Down is about your experience as a teacher. Not all of it is true.
Your character is quite ineffective. A complete loser. He tries. He is
not good at being an adults, which is why it is so fun to play him. For
those who are not familiar with the series, can you sum it up? It is a
stupid... An idiot manchild and two equally strange friends trying to
navigate their way through life. But idiot man has grown up because Dan
has become a father. Yeah. He did the Berman on to become a father.
There are various ways of doing it. He has become a father but through
an encounter with a previous love interest and he found out at the end
of the last series the that resulted in a pregnancy. This series starts
with heart on her way back, she has gone overseas, on her way back
heavily pregnant. We are going to watch a clip. Dan always thinks
everything is against him in life and when the baby is born he thinks
the baby gets him. He thinks every time he looks at the baby turns
away. This is the first day he is allowed to take the baby out on his
own and he is upset because he thinks his son hates him and he
meets someone in the Park who tries to make him feel better. He is
played by Derek Griffiths who, if you are as old as me, which you are
not... We established... You are only looking at Alex. You will
remember Derek Griffiths from Playschool and programmes from the
70s so it was brilliant to have him. Let us see you in action. May I...
There he is. He is looking straight at you. I know. And yet I have no
eyes. Incredible. Don't panic. You'll get there. You take him back.
It's bolted with my kid on its back. Not again! Sheba! I made the mistake
of watching an episode on the train and I had my headphones on and I was
laughing my head off. It is hilarious. That is fairly highbrow.
We hope it makes people laugh. That is what we set out to do. We do not
have a specific date but Man Down is out mid-August. I think it is the
16th. You can catch all series on all four.
And Greg, as the series was inspired by your time
as a real-life drama teacher, you'll no doubt be pleased to hear
we'll be returning to those happy days very shortly.
Despite the downpours this week, apparently July is the month
to ensure thirsty plants such as celery, peas, courgettes,
and tomatoes are regularly watered. Patrick has been to visit a grower
in Teesside who is taking tomato tending to a whole new level.
The UK tomato industry is booming. Under the ruse of high-tech
glasshouses cutting-edge science is allowing lawyers to produce
bountiful crops of super home-grown tomatoes. Last year the industry was
worth ?190 million. Just like all plants, tomatoes absorb carbon
dioxide from their surrounding environment and use it to produce
sugars which helps them to grow. To speed up this growth producers had
to pump in carbon dioxide to the glasshouses. This one particular
uses over 23,000 tonnes every year. It creates an artificial environment
which is perfect for these tomatoes. With carbon dioxide being the
leading cause of climate change, the industry has been trying to minimise
its carbon footprint while keeping their tomatoes sweet. On an
industrial site in Teesside one tomato grower has teamed up with a
leading fertiliser factory to pump their waste CO2 directly into their
glasshouses. Phil Pearson is the man who sported the opportunity. We
wanted to increase the amount of carbon dioxide to give to our crop
in the fertiliser factory were previously emitting it into the
atmosphere so they saw a benefit to giving it to us and we had the
benefit of taking it and putting it in the crop so it was as biotech
opportunity. Instead of the carbon dioxide being released into the
atmosphere that is being fixed into these plans and put to good use.
Exactly right. Something that was previously thrown away. He tomato
that lasts longer, the eating experiences better. The consumer
gets the benefit. Some people might ask why you do not grow these
tomatoes outdoors in a really sunny climate. We are growing very close
to the market so we have a quality food for the UK consumer. You have
other challenges when you are in the sunshine, lack of water, problems
with pest control, other challenges would make it more difficult to
grow. Although this gas is completely invisible to the naked
eye we have brought along a specialist piece of kit to help show
what is going on. This is a state-of-the-art gas visualising
camera. Normally used to detect industrial gas leaks we can show the
carbon dioxide coming off of my breath... And the carbon dioxide
inside the glasshouses. When we use this camera one full's CO2 outlets
we can see that almost immediately the air around his hand changes,
giving off a blue hue. This is the first time Phil is able to visualise
the carbon dioxide feeding his tomatoes. Incredible. I have never
seen that before. That is fascinating. Being able to see it in
real time allows us to pinpoint when we introduce it. Currently the crop
is using about 30-31% of what is coming out of the tube. It is
interesting to me to see if we should be moving the tube further up
to perhaps use more than 30%. Even though it is quite a lot of waste
CO2 it is better than the alternative. Absolutely. We come
from an industry that was zero, and we are up to 30%. Not being able to
see it before we were guessing, now we can target it. Capturing carbon
dioxide from factories and using it to fuel food production is a simple
step with the big impact. Hear it provides us with a super-sweet tasty
tomato. Greg was telling us how he had three
pounds of tomatoes last night. I had a sudden craving for them. Some
would say I am pregnant. Cherry or plum? Plum. Do you grow your own?
No. You have a lovely patio. Thank you. We have a picture of it. You
have a dwarf Peachtree. That is the only edible thing I have got. I do
not really know what it is. Out of all the things you could have
chosen, why that? I don't know. I just thought, you're coming home
with me. Across the country... Across the country many of us
are getting ready for the end of the school year and will be
saying goodbye to many of our terrific teachers and maybe
plying them with wine But tonight, Greg, we are reuniting
you with some of your former pupils in what we're calling
This Is Your Teaching Life. Behind this screen are some
of your former drama students Each will tell a story about you,
Greg, and all you have to do is try I mean... I know, it's a long shot.
You laughed at me when I had to dress as a punk rocker for Gregory
is Carol. You had me singing in all. You wrote the word nerd on my
script. I already sound like the dream teacher. I brought a dog in
for rehearsals and I wrote nerd on her script. Would you like a clue?
What school was it? Sandhurst. You bumped into this person actually
petrol station ten years ago and you pulled a face when she said she was
going to go on to train as a teacher. Really? I don't know why
because it is a very noble profession. Any idea? No. Let's
reveal. Bring their own Bethan. I can hand on heart say that Bethan
was a lovely pupil. That is true. Pupil number two. You called me and
a group of friends trash in a drama studio at break time. I'd tried to
run away but you got me and put me in detention. I remember. Is it
Sandhurst again? Yeah. Timmy Bacon? Fantastic. I started as a reporter
in your production of Bugsy Malone and you helped me perfect my
American accent. We used silly string for the guns. Bugsy Malone. I
directed it twice through sheer laziness. I don't know. We will
bring her in. Tanya Little. Go and say hello to your former pupils. Man
Down starts mid-August on Channel 4. Greg, thanks for joining
us this evening. Comedian Rob Beckett will be
on presenting duties with me tomorrow night in our last show
before our summer break when we'll be talking
to the stars of Cars Three,
