to build sculptures. -- this artist. She takes random shapes and styles

:00:17.:00:26.
:00:27.:00:30.

them into life-size horses. Watch this. It just finishes his profile.

:00:30.:00:34.

She has brought one of these back to the beach in Devon to photograph

:00:34.:00:38.

it and I am going to give her a hand. Let's take them out of the

:00:38.:00:48.

horsebox! Don't let him run away with you! He is quite frisky!

:00:48.:00:52.

have brought it down here to be photographed. What is the best

:00:52.:00:56.

angle? I don't know that I want to be lying on the beach because it is

:00:56.:01:02.

cold. I am happy to get my feet wet. I will squat down and see if I can

:01:02.:01:09.

get something against the sky with some water in. Beautiful. I just

:01:09.:01:13.

love to bring them back to the sea because they make great shots.

:01:13.:01:19.

looks lovely. This shows amazing observation about how the horse

:01:19.:01:25.

moves. You say all the right things! But it does, so realistic.

:01:25.:01:30.

You have got that from your experience withdrawing. Yes. I just

:01:30.:01:35.

did nothing but horses in the field, drawing all the time. My heroes

:01:35.:01:40.

were people like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. I am seriously

:01:40.:01:44.

interested in drawing. Her love for drawing and figurative work led her

:01:44.:01:49.

to leave her fine art course in the 1960s. She says that at the time,

:01:49.:01:53.

her tutors were more interested in abstract and conceptual art, and

:01:53.:01:57.

drawing was out of fashion. They suggested that she was not the

:01:57.:02:03.

stuff proper artists were made of. Having found her own style, her

:02:03.:02:08.

sculptures are in demand in Britain and overseas. Their prices range

:02:08.:02:16.

from �250 for a drawing to tens of thousands for a big Sculpture.

:02:16.:02:20.

is quite large. How long does a piece like that take? It depends

:02:20.:02:24.

entirely on how much would I have got. I have four or five pieces on

:02:24.:02:29.

the go. If I get stuck on one, I move on to another one. You could

:02:29.:02:35.

be waiting for a back leg for months. Could do! How do you fix it

:02:36.:02:40.

together? I start by taking a decision about what it will be

:02:40.:02:45.

doing and I Weld a steel frame together. Then it is a question of

:02:45.:02:52.

tying bits of driftwood and till I know where they will be. Then I

:02:52.:02:55.

screw them in. It has been known for it to take three years but that

:02:55.:02:59.

is not common. She likes to showcase the finished works by

:02:59.:03:06.

photographing them back where they came from, the beach. Do you go out

:03:06.:03:11.

and find the driftwood yourself? used to. Not any longer. Not this

:03:11.:03:16.

size. I have people that can act for me. That is the wonderful thing

:03:16.:03:20.

about driftwood. Even when it is completely dead, it has the sense

:03:20.:03:25.

of being alive. That is why they are so fascinating to people.

:03:25.:03:33.

has a strength and movement all of its own. Every bit of what seems to

:03:33.:03:38.

be alive, flooring and furniture. And this is in its very natural

:03:38.:03:43.

state. It has just got something about it. It has. It has get-up-

:03:43.:03:51.

and-go. Really, you are taking nature's debris and recycling it.

:03:51.:03:56.

am. It is extraordinary. It must take a lot of patience.

:03:56.:03:59.

interesting thing about that is that if you are doing something

:03:59.:04:04.

that you love, you don't need patience. You liked the look of

:04:04.:04:10.

them, didn't you? Very talented. I am sitting here in shock. For me

:04:10.:04:16.

that is just amazing. Have you got room for one of them at 10?

:04:17.:04:22.

Talking about passion, you are very much your own boss. This album is

:04:22.:04:28.

outside of Simon Cowell's label. Yes. Simon Cowell and Psycho did so

:04:28.:04:34.

much for me. We did our first album together, Overcome, but now I have

:04:34.:04:38.

moved on. The year that I took out to do this album was an amazing

:04:38.:04:41.

year and a half because I am now the executive producer of the album

:04:41.:04:46.

so it is challenging to say the least. Did you want more control?

:04:46.:04:51.

Not really. To be fair, doing the first album, Simon gave me a lot of

:04:51.:04:55.

control but I had to make it in six or seven months. I was able to take

:04:55.:04:59.

my time with this one. With this album I really wanted to do

:04:59.:05:03.

something, give something I had never given before, faith in the

:05:03.:05:08.

fear of being more open. That is why it is called Heartbreak On Hold.

:05:08.:05:11.

And I am very nervous about it because I am so open in this album

:05:11.:05:16.

that it scares me a bit. It is about to be out there for the world

:05:16.:05:20.

to hear. The new single is called Let It Go. It is the most fun that

:05:20.:05:24.

we have seen anybody having on the London Underground. Let's have a

:05:24.:05:33.

look at the video. #, on, baby, bring back the love.

:05:33.:05:40.

# Let it go. # Let it go, let it all go.

:05:40.:05:50.
:05:50.:05:53.

There we are! It has still got the dance five. Yes. Alfie has

:05:53.:06:00.

disappeared! It still has that dance element to it. Yes. I really

:06:00.:06:03.

wanted to achieve something with this album, and I am a happy person

:06:03.:06:08.

and I like to have fun, and I wanted my sons to be up-tempo and

:06:08.:06:12.

vibrant. I still wanted people to understand the deeper meaning

:06:12.:06:16.

behind the lyrics. That is why on some of the tracks I have stripped

:06:16.:06:20.

down the vocal, stripped down the production, and an acoustic

:06:20.:06:24.

versions so that people can understand the deeper meaning

:06:24.:06:28.

behind the album. I want the songs to shoplift people, make them happy,

:06:28.:06:34.

turn a negative situation into a positive. -- up lift people.

:06:34.:06:40.

Remember, you only live once. have also been a judge on the X

:06:40.:06:46.

Factor. What do you make of The Voice? I love it. I am nothing that

:06:46.:06:51.

there is a lot of opportunity out there for people to have a chance

:06:51.:06:55.

in this industry. -- I am loving. I am always going to be a fan of

:06:55.:07:00.

these shows for the simple reason that talent is being shown. It is

:07:00.:07:04.

for people that cannot walk into a record label and get signed. It is

:07:04.:07:11.

fantastic. The Voice is all about how good the singing is. Can people

:07:11.:07:15.

see past the back story and how the performer looks? For me, nothing

:07:15.:07:20.

should be about anything other than the voice, the talent, what you are

:07:20.:07:23.

giving, what is coming out of you. It should never be about anything

:07:23.:07:27.

else. On that note, you had a very interesting telephone call when you

:07:27.:07:33.

were very young. You sang down the telephone. He was on the other end?

:07:33.:07:39.

I am never going to forget this! My mother met Stevie Wonder and he

:07:39.:07:42.

rang the house own and I got to sing down the telephone to him and

:07:42.:07:52.
:07:52.:07:54.

he sang back to me. -- the house phone. He did It isn't she Lovely.

:07:54.:08:01.

Then I started crying, as I always do! I said I did not mean to this

:08:01.:08:04.

respect him and I did not realise it was him, and he wanted to sign

:08:04.:08:09.

me but my mother said I was too young. She was right, I was only 12

:08:09.:08:14.

and I did have to finish school. She was right and everybody has

:08:14.:08:24.
:08:24.:08:24.

been right ever since! 27th May, Let It Go comes out. And the album

:08:24.:08:28.

is out in June. This rain has been perfect conditions for our bluebell

:08:28.:08:33.

woods. They have been in bloom for longer than usual but this can be a

:08:33.:08:40.

growing problem. Yes, Britain. Your bluebells need you. Walk through

:08:40.:08:44.

the woods at this time of year and you are likely to be rewarded with

:08:44.:08:48.

a stunning spectacle. A carpet of purple stretching into the distance

:08:49.:08:53.

and the sweet smell filling the air. Around half of the world's

:08:53.:08:58.

population of wild bluebells are found in the UK, making our woods

:08:58.:09:04.

internationally important. This woodland in Wiltshire is a classic

:09:04.:09:08.

spot. Not all bluebells in Britain are native. There is an invader in

:09:08.:09:13.

our midst, the Spanish bluebell. Spanish bluebells were brought to

:09:13.:09:16.

the UK as garden plants. The problem is that they are incredibly

:09:16.:09:21.

good at cross-breeding with our native bluebells. They are putting

:09:21.:09:26.

this magnificent spectacle under threat. Native bluebells need our

:09:26.:09:32.

help. Dr Fred Rumsey from the Natural History Museum is running a

:09:32.:09:36.

survey to do just that, eye- tracking where the native and

:09:36.:09:43.

Spanish invaders got to. It was here in the early 17th century and

:09:43.:09:48.

it has been spreading slowly, we think, ever since. As it spread all

:09:48.:09:52.

over the country now? It has got as far as Scotland but we are sketchy

:09:52.:09:57.

about the details of where it is. Hence the project? Yes, we need

:09:57.:10:03.

people to help find out whether bluebells are. Then we can keep

:10:03.:10:07.

beautiful populations like this going. How do you tell a native

:10:07.:10:12.

from a Spanish? There are some classic signs. For starters, native

:10:12.:10:15.

bluebells have a gently nodding head, with all the bells on one

:10:15.:10:25.
:10:25.:10:25.

side. They are a dark colour, tubular, with lovely curved petals.

:10:25.:10:28.

When you look inside, you can see the contrast between the dark

:10:28.:10:34.

colour of the flour and the White, the pale cream anchors. And of

:10:34.:10:44.
:10:44.:10:45.

course you get that amazing smile. Gorgeous. -- smell. In contrast,

:10:45.:10:49.

the Spanish bluebell is a very different beast, traditionally

:10:49.:10:55.

found in gardens. The Spanish stands tall with flowers all round,

:10:55.:10:59.

and instead of narrow belts, the flowers are open with blue pollen

:10:59.:11:08.

and no cent. -- no smell. It is a hybrid that of the problem. As the

:11:08.:11:10.

Spanish cross with the natives, they are creeping into the

:11:10.:11:15.

countryside, threatening to push out the native bluebells. As they

:11:15.:11:19.

are a mixture of both species, it takes a keen eye to spot them.

:11:19.:11:23.

with all hybrid, it is an intermediate, with characters of

:11:23.:11:33.
:11:33.:11:33.

both parents. The colour is midway between the two. We have got a

:11:33.:11:42.

fledge bell, but not very wide and open like the Spanish one. -- fled.

:11:42.:11:50.

There is a trace of a smile, but not the lovely sweet, honey smell.

:11:50.:11:54.

I'm surprised we have got hybrid plans on the edge of woodland in a

:11:54.:11:57.

wild place. I would have thought they would be native. They are

:11:57.:12:02.

common in urban areas, close to gardens, and little stretches of

:12:02.:12:05.

ancient woodland around towns are increasingly filling up with hybrid

:12:05.:12:12.

plants. The Spanish ones of crossing with the natives.

:12:12.:12:16.

bluebells are pollinated by insects but we can help prevent the spread

:12:16.:12:21.

of Spanish and hybrids by not planting them in our gardens and

:12:21.:12:26.

making sure they are dead before we compost them. We can also do the

:12:26.:12:30.

survey. How would you like One Show viewers to help? We would like

:12:30.:12:34.

people to go to our website and then they can record on that where

:12:34.:12:40.

they have seen bluebells, which ones and when they are flowering.

:12:40.:12:45.

Then we can find out where they are and keep them apart. Only by

:12:45.:12:48.

knowing where every native stronghold is in Britain will the

:12:48.:12:51.

wildlife agencies be able to protect them from the invading

:12:51.:12:56.

Spanish and hybrids. Now is the time to get out and enjoy this

:12:56.:13:06.
:13:06.:13:10.

wonderful spectacle and help our He was glued to that! You have to

:13:10.:13:14.

go out and do the survey. What a lovely image.

:13:14.:13:19.

To help out with the Natural History Museum's survey, go to our

:13:19.:13:25.

website, where you will find a link to it. He will also see a short

:13:25.:13:29.

video way you will find out everything you need to do.

:13:29.:13:33.

Is is a great website, I was on it another day.

:13:33.:13:37.

Anyone who have taken a flight with the young child will know the first

:13:37.:13:41.

job is to strap them in and the second is to keep them entertained.

:13:41.:13:46.

I got the safety card out to show my son the aeroplane and then I had

:13:46.:13:51.

to explain to him why he could not have a go on the inflatable slide!

:13:52.:13:55.

A Politics Scotland view of got in touch because she is questioning

:13:55.:14:03.

whether sitting children on your lap is dangerous.

:14:03.:14:08.

Every year, thousands of us head on our holidays trusting that the

:14:08.:14:11.

airlines will get us to our destinations safely but one woman

:14:11.:14:18.

wrote to the show with a serious concern. Why are toddlers and

:14:18.:14:24.

babies expected to sit on their parents' laps when on an aeroplane?

:14:24.:14:29.

It is not safe. In the same way as on a car, they should be in a car

:14:29.:14:33.

seat and they should be properly protected. You could not imagine

:14:33.:14:38.

getting in a car and putting ATOC lock on your lap. All UK airlines

:14:39.:14:44.

allow children under two to travel on their parents lap. This is how

:14:44.:14:51.

most of us live with a child under two at the moment. -- most of us

:14:51.:14:56.

flyer. You are provided with a seat belt like this. Bring the baby on

:14:56.:15:05.

to your lap. Everyone happy? We are ready. Rebecca has a 20 month old

:15:05.:15:10.

daughter and is expecting a second baby. She has to do a lot of flying

:15:10.:15:16.

because she works as an engineer on military jets in Germany. If you

:15:16.:15:21.

had to stop suddenly, instead of going forwards, you a crushing the

:15:21.:15:26.

baby on your lap. But parents might be concerned that this is another

:15:26.:15:31.

charge for parents. I think a lot of parents would be happy to pay

:15:31.:15:37.

the extra. Some parents do already choose to pay extra on airlines

:15:37.:15:42.

that allow it but Rebecca is so concerned about the issue, she has

:15:42.:15:47.

set up an online campaign and her worries were heightened when she

:15:47.:15:52.

read an official report by the European aviation safety agency.

:15:52.:15:55.

This report acknowledges that babies and infants would be safer

:15:55.:15:58.

if they have their own seats with proper seat belts to restrain them

:15:58.:16:05.

in the event of an accident. The experts to work on the report

:16:05.:16:09.

carried out crash tests to analyse the effectiveness of look seat

:16:09.:16:14.

belts, used to secure babies. This footage shows a similar experiment

:16:14.:16:19.

in America, with devastating consequences for the baby. In

:16:19.:16:24.

America and Canada, loop bells have been banned but in the UK, they are

:16:24.:16:34.

still common thread is it --, the soap is it time for a new policy?

:16:34.:16:39.

One of parents be concerns around this suggestion is that it would

:16:39.:16:43.

increase the cost of going away to the point where they would not be

:16:43.:16:49.

able to take their family on holiday any more. Lots of parents

:16:49.:16:53.

had travelled with their children and not had any problems. Airline

:16:53.:16:58.

travel is generally seen as very safe and so it is not men number

:16:58.:17:03.

one issue when they are thinking about travelling -- their number

:17:03.:17:07.

one issue. In the UK, the Civil Aviation Authority enforces the

:17:08.:17:12.

rules and while they encourage airlines to offer a choice, they do

:17:12.:17:17.

not think banning those types of seat belts are necessary.

:17:17.:17:23.

position is based on 30 years of supplementary loop seatbelts been

:17:23.:17:28.

used by UK airlines, and there is no statistical evidence to

:17:28.:17:35.

demonstrate that carrying infants in that way is not safe. Currently

:17:35.:17:40.

most of the large airlines will allow you to buy an extra seat for

:17:40.:17:44.

a child under two but some insist that babies under six months old

:17:44.:17:50.

must travel on an adult's lap. For Rebecca, having the option to use a

:17:50.:17:54.

proper child seat on every airline would be a step forward. The

:17:54.:17:59.

airline she uses has changed their policy, but not as a result of

:17:59.:18:04.

Rebecca's campaign. EasyJet have changed their regulation so babies

:18:04.:18:08.

under six months have the option to go for a baby seat so at Christmas,

:18:08.:18:14.

we will be buying one and the baby will be safely protected and we can

:18:14.:18:20.

see the family, which is great. you want more details on what the

:18:20.:18:24.

Civil Aviation Authority says about this, there is a link on our

:18:24.:18:27.

website. Yesterday we ask you to send our

:18:27.:18:37.
:18:37.:18:39.

question for Nu -- Planet Earth. June try to send her female Cup

:18:40.:18:44.

into the wild but she was not taking the hint. The big question

:18:44.:18:54.
:18:54.:19:21.

I was in the woods with Fern and June and I saw June, Aspen back

:19:21.:19:27.

together! Aspen was suckling on her mum! June is not very good at the

:19:27.:19:31.

family break-up, she does not want to let go of the kids!

:19:31.:19:37.

We have got time for some questions. How read books would like to know,

:19:38.:19:43.

what is a bear's favourite season? -- Harry Brooks. And John would

:19:43.:19:49.

like to know what a bear's sleeping pattern is like? Do they sleep

:19:49.:19:55.

longer than humans? Next time I am out with a bear, I

:19:55.:20:01.

will ask them what their six favourite season is. In Minnesota

:20:01.:20:06.

they say, if you don't like the weather, come back in five minutes

:20:06.:20:12.

of stock and bear sleeps six hours every night. They have a cat nap in

:20:12.:20:18.

the day and that is what you can see Herbie and Fern doing up a tree.

:20:18.:20:26.

Look how cute that is! Before I go. I have got some more Herbie and

:20:26.:20:32.

Fern treats. This is then climbing trees, practising their real

:20:32.:20:37.

important tree climbing. Two things you should not do when you are

:20:37.:20:42.

climbing trees in Minnesota, do not climb dead trees and stay away from

:20:42.:20:48.

the birch tree because they have a slippery bark. Guess what trees

:20:48.:20:54.

they are trying to climb! What can we look forward to tonight? We have

:20:54.:21:00.

the update on June and Aspen, the update on the meerkat, did he

:21:00.:21:04.

survive the COBRA? Lovely to see you.

:21:04.:21:12.

Goodbye! More animals now. More of the domestic kind. For all of you

:21:12.:21:16.

taking photos of your dogs doing tricks, it is time to cover their

:21:16.:21:21.

ears because this next film is all about the woman who made this

:21:21.:21:31.
:21:31.:21:32.

command famous. Walkies! In this House in Dublin live a

:21:32.:21:36.

quintessentially English woman, who made us sit up and listen to her

:21:36.:21:41.

every command. But a century ago, Barbara Woodhouse was called

:21:41.:21:45.

Barbara Blackburn. She was born into the English elite when Ireland

:21:45.:21:51.

was trying to break free from British rule. She was the most

:21:51.:21:57.

unlikely TV star. She wore tweed skirts, a cardigan, happier in the

:21:57.:22:01.

show ring than with showbiz, and preferred mucking out to going out.

:22:01.:22:05.

A nation which had voted in its first female prime minister was

:22:05.:22:11.

also happy to obey orders from Queen Barbara. The Guinness Book of

:22:11.:22:18.

Records name to of the world's top trainer. Sit! She had made a career

:22:18.:22:26.

out of being bossy. Keep your hand out of the way! That was good!

:22:26.:22:31.

Barbara's father was an Anglican minister and when she was born, he

:22:31.:22:35.

was headmaster at St Columba's College in Dublin. Many of the

:22:35.:22:42.

pupils trained as future offices of the British Army. The family lived

:22:42.:22:50.

in this school grounds. Her father, the Reverend, was a headmaster.

:22:50.:22:54.

was a strict disciplinarian, a formidable person. Both parents

:22:54.:23:00.

were undoubtedly distant figures. For example, Barbara did not see

:23:01.:23:06.
