Tonight on The One Show the usual big line-up joining Alex and Matt.


There they are chatting with the production crew on the far side, a


few members of the audience. There is the Director-General and the


Phantom Flan Flinger. The Phantom Flan Flinger oh no, there go the


custard pies. Oh, this is disgraceful. These people have come


together to make BBC One's flagship show and this is what he does. Oh


no, this is what they want, surely LAUGHTER


Welcome to The One Show with Matt Baker and Alex Jones. Tonight's


guest had a fair few flans in his face. It is millionaire moist tro


and Tiswas tyrant, Chris Tarrant. When I come here, you always drag


up Tiswas. Tiswas about 50 years. Here come the buckets and the pies.


We haven't had the Phantom Flan Flinger! Wasn't that the original


Phantom Flan Flinger. Did you ever reveal his identity? Of course not.


If you showed me, I wouldn't know. We were shocked that he is back and


he is in the studio. Goodness me. Oh no! You say, "Oh no." He could


fling that flan at any point. If I have got to wash my hair.


We have got big news about Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Later in


the summer, contestants will be able to ask the UK as the show goes


live and interactive. We're going to help Chris out by


road testing you lot out there. Now each night we bombard you with


facts and infoe so don't let us down. Here is your question:


Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is broadcast throughout the world


including Uganda, but what is the I should do this for a living


living! To hear the questions this close up.


It is a bit tense. All you have to do is put A, B, C


or D into the subject box and e- mail The One Show. Be good sports.


Don't goog Google and we will see how smart you are


You could phone a friend! Who wants to see Dan Snow being slapped about


by proper military muscle? Yes, please!


This wilderness is as remote as it is beautiful.


But knees glens in the Highlands of Scotland have seen a fair bit of


fighting from clashing clans to skirmishes, there is a long history


of guerrilla warfare. It was a hotbed of fighting 70 years ago


when an elite unit of men hidden from prying eyes came here to take


on the might and it became known as Castle Commando and and Achnacarry


became one of the toughest training grounds. Churchill wanted to create


an elite fighting force to unnerve the Nazis.


Do you want to have a really good crack at enemy? Here is your chance.


He called these shock troops, Commandos. They had one mission, to


carry out daring raids in German held territory. Here they are,


filmed at Achnacarry with its remote location and rough terrain,


it was the perfect training ground. Brace-up, chests out.


The current crop of Commandos come here every year to train, but I'm


going to see if I can hack it. I will be taking you through Royal


Marines close combat. How to tackle a bloke with your


bare hands. Knock him out. Spoil his prospects and pinch his weapon.


20,000 men passed through Achnacarry between 1942 and 1946


and they were taught basics which remains the same today.


Pull them in nice and close. Bang. Scape and I'm up.


I prefer doing my research in the library!


It is incredible to think that you are training people in 2012 with


methods that were pioneered during the Second World War? The old


school method was try it if it hurts you, it hurts everyone else.


It is a lot of the old methods and things have been added to it.


For the recruits in 1942, there was no time to settle in. As soon as


the the volunteers got off the train, they had to complete a 13


kilometre march with all their equipment.


Left, right. Left, right. Back in the day, the lads used to


speed march up to Castle Commando and if they didn't make it within


the time, they were turned back. It is simple. You can wheedle out


people who weren't up to it. Six weeks was the deadline to


produce the finest fighting soldier. But the fail rate was high. Only


half of those who started out would get to wear the green beret.


We have got a great affinity with the commandos and we are proud that


they feel that Achnacarry is a spiritual home for them.


The Cameron clan willingly gave up their castle. They burned the wood


of the house. They burned three days and three nights. There was a


lot of of unexploded ammunition. People were killed here in training


exercises? Yes. Training may have seemed extreme.


But putting the the commandos in these tough situations was the best


preparation for what lay ahead. Stan Scott was one of the first


Commandos to pass out of Achnacarry. We had people go down. We had


people falling out of the trees and falling in the river nearly


drowning and people going down with gunshot wounds. Daylight was a


piece of cake at Achnacarry. Commandos have served all over the


world from the Artic Circle to South East Asia, but they learned


their lethal skills here in the Highlands. It took 42 days at


Achnacarry to make a Commando and Dan, you looked amazing in that


uniform. But we are let down. You were a wreck by the end. What has


happened to you? They through me around like a bit of wet spaghetti.


It was embarrassing. You have turned into a big baby.


It is not easy easy when you are interviewing.


There were fa fatalities during the training, but these guys were using


live ammunition. The Commandos were taking part in


exercises, and people were firing live ammunition, and firing smoke


shells. You can see the pictures, they would be paddling to shorement


they tried to simulate battle conditions. Look at the tracer


going over their heads and people were killed and wounded, but the


key thing was to get them to a state where they could take on the


enemy. And that was just the training.


What was Their biggest achievements? The Commandos, the


famous raid which was a disaster. It was an attack in Northern France.


The Canadians who went in after them got cut to shreds and it was


seen as a setback, but lessons were learned and when D-Day came along


in June 1944, the command owes were in action again and the training


was put into track tis. -- practise. They performed very well at D-Day.


You have a manual and it is still used, isn't it? This is a guide by


by William Fairbairn. It is still in print and it is still used. If


your elbows and your wrists bend in the same way, we haven't changed.


This is part of their training. It is exciting and they go back to the


old veterans and ask them questions. It is amazing.


You should have a look at that, there is a chapter called Back


Break. Why do I want to look at that? You always do Tiswas and try


and kill me! We are going to phone a friend or a


few. Who have you brought in, Dan? We have a sergeant from the Royal


Marines and he is an expert. The demonstration has been tapered


down. The guys won't be armed with rifles or side arms. However, the


demonstration that you're going to see is a typical scenario in an


enclosed space where the Marine could be on boarding operations for


the Horn of Africa or the Middle East or the commitment that we've


got to Afghanistan where guys are regularly clearing through


compounds and finding themselves close with the enemy.


close with the enemy. As you can see now, the Royal


Marine Commando has taken down the assillant with the weapon system.


He has disarmed the weapon system. Because there is a threat to life,


he has chosed to use -- -- chosen to use a lethal technique. He can


wait for follow on troops to come in and take this guy away for


questioning and we can exploit intelligence for him. This is the


thing we expect each Marine to be capable of achieving and working in


To do this. Shall I come over and have a go?


Right, be gentle now. I'm going ask Dan to move into this area here.


We're going to do it initially standing and we're going to move on


to the floor where it will be employed. I'm going to take charge


of Dan's hand. Not supporting the wrist and force that that pinky up


towards the elbow. He is tapping there now. This is to signify that


he is in pain and if I continue to push, I would snap the limb. This


is where it would be employed. Initially start in the standing


position and we can watch you take The ground.


You reckon I can do it? Come at me, go on.


Knock him out, spoil his prospects. Down you go!


Realistically, the Royal Marine Commando would come in and take


charge of him. Are you all right? Brilliant.


I'm armed! Don't mess with me. Not easy in high heels as any


Not easy in high heels as any Marine will tell you!


LAUGHTER Chris, you were involved this this


documentary, War Hero In My Family, weren't you? It was very raw.


You knew your dad had won the Military Cross, but is it right


that you didn't know how? Not a clue. He didn't talk about stuff.


It is a generational thing. I grew up after the war and as I got older


my house was full of ex-soldiers. All the ones who were giving that,


ah, home fit for heroes, they had never been anywhere more more


dangerous like Bournemouth, the ones like my dad, they never ever


said a word. It was only with me when Toby my son was old enough to


say say, "Grandpa, what did you do in the war?" We fished together and


talked about everything and only at that point did he start saying a


few things to Toby. I said, "You never told me that." He said, "You


were never interested." I learned a lot about my father.


Let's look at moment when you are you are listening back to an


interview that he did. I crawled forward with one


volunteer to approach a set of buildings. No problem at all. We


shot it up. We came back home. No casualties. End of story.


I haven't heard his voice since the day he died.


And that's really hard. He would hate me to do this, but I


miss him so much.. Ah, Chris. It was awful, it was the first time


I heard his voice since he died. It really beat me up.


I don't think any of us have seen you in that state before.


I don't really cry, but it really got through to me. One of the great


sadnesses is my sum hung on and hung on and hung on and she died


about a week before it went out, but it is life.


He was your best friend, so what what difference would it have made


if he told you all those things when he was alive? I would have


loved him more. Some of the things I found out. He became a soldier,


but he hadn't signed up to become a soldier. He was thrown into the


deep end in 1939 and went to Dunkirk and came back and went to


D-Day. He was a major in the infantry. The mortality among


They wiped out the Germans, he brought the English guys back alive.


He got the Military Cross. I thought they stood there with


popguns other side of the field, but a lot of the stuff I found out


was really savage, going into buildings, house-to-house, snipers


on the roof, Germans behind the doors, bayonets, it was really


scary. You don't like to think about your father killing other


people. Just to survive, right through the war. Do you think maybe


that's why he didn't tell you about it, because he didn't want you to


think like that? It is a generation thing. They just put it away. The


only time people talked about counselling and therapy really


started in Vietnam. You think, what these guys, my dad did not have


nightmares, he was an amazing, articulate, funny guy. He did not


have nightmares. I don't think his mates did. I told my mum, my late


mum, and she said I had no idea. She did not know. He did not tell


my mum either. You are writing a book? I want to put it down while


it is in my head and the kids want me to write it. We will publish it.


It is a huge labour of love. thanks. We're on to gardening now.


Of course we are. Gardeners plant, in their back gardens, it is for


their enjoyment, but what they plant in front Gardner's is for all


of us to enjoy. Go on, give it some welly, Christine.


Spring has now well and truly sprung, spurred on by all the rain.


It is now the turn of the late spring shower shrubs. I'm in the St


Albans area trying to find some of those beautiful front garden plants


in bloom. Many gardeners used these glorious shrubs almost like hedges,


sharing a blast of colour with passes by. -- passers by. Lovely


arching stems of this shrub, spilling the sunshine on to the


ground, a big plant, ten ft by ten ft eventually. What a beauty. The


spring rain has been helpful to azaleas and rhododendrons. Some of


the brightest flowers at this time of the year. They shine even on the


dullest days. Oh, look at that! What a lovely combination. Now they


are just begging for closer Look at this explosive burst of


colour, and rhododendron, a beautiful rhododendron, not only


grown for its spectacular golden- yellow flowers the most incredible,


heady scent. It's literally a knockout. As a story that goes on


the passing Turkey, the Turkish army were sleeping underneath the


this and it sent them into a deep sleep. The Russian army came over


and slit their throats. A fantastic story associated with this plan.


That sent his heavy and to contrast it with this spectacular Acer, a


fine, delicate foliage contrast it with the bald blobs of colour. What


a lovely combination of colour, texture and habit, two front garden


stars for the price of one. Rhododendrons and acers generally


prefer acid soils. You can find out whether or not your soil is


suitable with a P.H. Testing kit, like this. Just a few quid from


your local garden centre. Soil pH not only dictates what you can grow


but also the colour of certain flowers. A pink flowering hydrangea


in alkaline soil can be turned blue. Some gardeners are very rusty nails


near the routes to acidify the soil, but it's much simpler to reduce the


soil pH by adding aluminium sulphate. The real jewel in the


crown of Sharow -- of Acholi shrubs is another with intense blue


flowers, it is glorious in the late spring and what a specimen this is.


It is a real softie. I wonder if its owner has been pampering it.


This is a North American plant and it can be subjected to Frosts, so


do you ever coverage or protected? The know, nothing. I think it


protects other people more than be protected. How long has it been in?


I planted about ten years ago, so not really long. How have you


managed to get it looking so beautiful? To be honest I haven't


done a lot. I've never watered it. It's been a very good position, I


think. Does it always flower this well? Yes, every year. It's


marvellous. Now, you obviously adored as planned but what about


passers-by? A lot of people stop and look at it and I've seen people


take photographs of it. I'm not surprised, actually. And they


shelter under it. Very wise. Sometimes it hangs over the


pavement a bit and we have to chop it back a bit. Let them walk into


it, beauty like that. This is what a front garden start is all about,


gardeners planting their pride and joy, hanging on the pavement for us


all to appreciate. Isn't that great? She was in her


element, was she? She is continuing with her travels, so if you see her


on your drive, don't worry, she's just looking at the plants. She is


not trespassing. Are you green- fingered, Chris Tarrant? I have a


lovely place in Berkshire and I love gardening. I have a man who


does it, have to say. Amid suggestions and he says comedy it


will die if you put it there and I say, OK, but it somewhere else.


you love it? I love the countryside and having a garden. We need to


talk about Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. You have been doing


celebrity versions, celebrities with their other halves. How has it


been? I am like everyone else, I am nosey. I like watching Eamonn and


his wife. She was dreading it. And Paddy, in fairness, there is Eamonn


and his long-suffering wife. They squabbled and had fights, James


Hunt his wife, Beverley. You sit back then let it happen. They want


to do the show for you. It is tough on celebrities, it is tough. It is


harder because in the end they are not going to win anything. The


money goes to charity, half goes to the audience or whatever, but for


them, there is a chance it will look really embarrassing. I can't


mention anybody in particular, but Chris Evans. I knew you would say


that! But in July you are back to members of the public and you are


like. You us, I like to live think. -- yes. We have done a lot of


celebrities, there is only so many famous people who are that bright.


We haven't been on! Exact! Don't bring us into it. You apply. I did


apply as a contestant coming years ago, before The One Show. Brilliant.


A anyway, we're doing a summer series of specials, you live, huge


auditions for the people have been queuing around the block to come on.


I am looking forward to it. It is how we started, 14 years ago. It is


about mice little old ladies finding that �20,000 will change


their lives and it still will. There are stories all over the


world, I love the one about John Carpenter in the West who ran his


dad, and... Are the tax man, giving a million dollars to a taxman.


There are so many stories. And the real-life Who Wants To Be A


Millionaire?. Tell us about the new twist. You can apply on your


smartphone, you can join in. The normal ask the audience will become


ask the nation. You can say, I know this, and send it in. People in the


public gallery say, I know this, you can actually vote and increase


the percentage in the audience on your smartphone and online as well.


Tonight, we are road-testing, so you lot out there are going to do


your thing for Chris. We asked you a question earlier. What is the


The most popular answer from our viewers was B -- Shilling. About


70% of you said that. They are very intelligent viewers. I never said


they were not. What is the correct answer? If you said a, you would


have got it wrong. If you had see, you would have got it wrong. If you


said Deeo, you would have got it wrong, 70% of your audience are


right, it is the shilling. massive round of applause. You had


better hope there are One Show viewers watching your show. I was


just being unkind. Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Is on


ITV won this Sunday at 7pm. My man Friday, Chris Evans, recently had a


cancer scare, something that his father and his two uncles actually


died from. Chris wanted to find out why many men completely missed the


symptoms for one particular cancer that is potentially treatable if


caught in time. There are 40,000 new cases a year,


the second biggest cancer killer in the UK and it is something not


usually discussed on teatime television, so what is it? Bowel


cancer and it is entirely treatable, Batty's, entirely treatable, if it


is caught early enough and that is about early diagnosis. The tragedy


of this disease is that when the symptoms are caught too late the


survivability rate drops to less than 10%. That is how my dad died


and both of his brothers as well, my uncles. Yet what killed all


three of them was cut out of May last year in just 11 seconds. --


cut from me. What are the symptoms? The symptoms you should look out


for are bleeding, if you see any blood coming from your bottom, a


change of bowel habits, if you're pulled -- if your pool is looser or


if you are alternating between diarrhoea and constipation, or if


you have a lump in your abdomen. Go and see your GP. Your doctor will


refer you to a specialist for investigation using a simple and


painless procedure. It is a colonoscopy. This camera is like my


friend, it is like a bike -- Blind Date. I was nervous on our first


meeting but it could have saved my life, I love this camera. It is a


thin, flexible tube that goes into the bottom end. If we see anything


abnormal we can take tissue samples or remove the Pollitt at the time,


passing the instrument out at the end of the scope. This one knows me


into Mutley and it is nowhere near as bad as you sink and the local


anaesthetic makes it quite enjoyable. -- it knows me


intimitely. Reverend Barras Ben Brown has had his procedure and I'm


keen to find out how he got on. You have been in for a colonoscopy?


they have checked up through the RIA passage with a camera. They


found one problem and they were able to deal with it. Now men,


myself included are notoriously reticent -- reticent to do anything


about health issues but the cancer treatment does not get easier than


this, does it? It is a very simple procedure. People panicked too much


on cancer. They should realise it can be healed today. Don't hesitate.


It is something that doesn't take all that much time out of your day


and it can save your life at will stop the colonoscopy is fantastic


because it is able to both fined and remove these precancerous


problems. There is now a National Screening Programme to detect early


signs of bowel cancer that can be done in the privacy of your own


home. The national screening process could not be easier. If you


are having your dinner, you may want to look away now because we're


going to give it a go. You will get one of these test kits every two


years. You need to collect some pill. This is not real poo?


this is one we prepared earlier. Chocolate spread with what? Cereal,


fibrous serial. Take your first bit of cardboard kit, take a little bit


of stool sample that is in there and basically you need to smear it


on this. What is this for? That is the next one. Take it from the


other end of your stool, Duc two from one stool. Perfect, pop it


into the post and that is it. No expense to you at all other than


smearing your stool on cardboard. They are trying to save your life,


for free, who wouldn't want a bit of that? That is the story at St


Mark's, lots of clever people trying to help you help yourself


but the key is so many times, the sooner you get checked, the more


chance you have of surviving son nasties.


Thanks, Chris, we have put a list of who is eligible for the National


Screening Programme on our website. That is all we have time for
