Hello and welcome to

The One Show with Matt Baker.

0:00:160:00:19

And Alex Jones.

0:00:190:00:20

Now what do you think

is going on here?

0:00:200:00:27

Is it the BAFTA aftershow party,

getting a bit out of hand?

0:00:270:00:33

The scenes outside one

of the KFC's that ran

0:00:330:00:35

out of chicken today?

0:00:350:00:37

Or a fun day out

for all the family in

0:00:370:00:40

a Warwickshire market town?

0:00:400:00:41

Let's ask someone used

to answering obscure questions

0:00:410:00:43

on QI - Alan Davies.

0:00:430:00:46

APPLAUSE

Nice to see you.

0:00:460:00:53

Did you see the TV?

Yes. That will

be a rogue copy of my most recent

0:00:530:01:02

DVD spotted.

It is a traditional

game played every year in

0:01:020:01:09

Warwickshire, Atherstone more

precisely.

That's a game?

Yes.

0:01:090:01:17

We'll find out more

about it shortly.

0:01:170:01:20

Alan - we mentioned the BAFTAs

there - how did you think

0:01:200:01:22

Joanna Lumley got on?

0:01:220:01:24

Did she do a better job than Stephen

Fry?

I couldn't say. She was

0:01:240:01:31

wonderful. She is always a joy, just

to look at. I thought she was really

0:01:310:01:35

good.

I enjoyed the circus

interjections that went on.

0:01:350:01:39

I thought you might.

We had her on

Jonathan Creek years ago. We were

0:01:390:01:46

filming January. I was complaining

about being cold all day, moaning

0:01:460:01:52

nonstop, moaning at Sheridan Smith.

She had to do a scene where a heavy

0:01:520:01:56

bit of Marble fell on her, knocked

her over, and she had to lie in the

0:01:560:02:01

snow for two hours, doing her lines

perfectly without batting an eyelid,

0:02:010:02:04

so I think she's amazing.

0:02:040:02:06

Also tonight we're

celebrating the music

0:02:060:02:07

of the Queen of Rock and Roll.

0:02:070:02:11

# Big wheels keep on turning

# Proud Mary keep on burning #.

0:02:110:02:18

The star of the new Tina Turner

musical, Adrienne Warren,

0:02:180:02:20

tells us what its like step

into Tina's stilettos and will be

0:02:200:02:23

performing a huge Tina hit

at the end of the show.

0:02:230:02:27

We are looking forward to that.

0:02:270:02:29

The chief executive of Oxfam

has issued an apology over

0:02:290:02:32

the recent scandal that's engulfed

the charity saying: "We know we need

0:02:320:02:35

to learn and change.

0:02:350:02:36

And we will listen

every step of the way."

0:02:360:02:38

But how much damage have

recent allegations done

0:02:380:02:40

to the public's trust in Oxfam?

0:02:400:02:41

Matt's been to find out and talk

to the son of the manager

0:02:410:02:45

of the first ever Oxfam shop.

0:02:450:02:51

This chart in Oxford is the

birthplace of a British institution.

0:02:520:02:57

-- this church. For over 75 years

Oxfam has raised billions of pounds

0:02:570:03:02

in aid and helped millions of

people. But now it is hit by

0:03:020:03:06

scandal. With accusations that its

aid workers abused women and the

0:03:060:03:13

fact Oxfam tried to cover up this

story.

For what has happened to have

0:03:130:03:17

happened, it is appalling.

You

believe, you trust in some

0:03:170:03:21

organisations, then they just betray

you.

I would now be much less likely

0:03:210:03:27

to donate money.

How did it happen?

The committee first met in 1942. It

0:03:270:03:35

was a small group united by concern

over famine in Greece. The first

0:03:350:03:41

Oxfam shop open just around the

corner here on broad Street five

0:03:410:03:45

years later. It is still here, in

fact. Joe Root meeting was the first

0:03:450:03:50

shopkeeper here and a man who spent

a lifetime overseeing Oxfam's

0:03:500:03:55

expansion into a national network.

-- Joe Mittie. What do you think

0:03:550:04:03

your dad would have said and done if

faced with this scandal?

He would

0:04:030:04:09

have been very angry, incredibly

disappointed, but very quickly would

0:04:090:04:14

want to do everything in his power

to put things right. Because he

0:04:140:04:18

would be very conscious of the fact

that there are many millions of

0:04:180:04:23

people who have benefited

tremendously from the work Oxfam has

0:04:230:04:27

done in 75 years. The sadness of the

current situation can be very

0:04:270:04:34

quickly forgotten.

The charity has

apologised but has the trust of its

0:04:340:04:38

donors and customers been damaged

beyond repair?

I won't be donating

0:04:380:04:43

any more. Because they weren't

upfront in the first place.

You

0:04:430:04:49

would not expected from a charity.

But you are also conscious that it

0:04:490:04:53

is unlikely to be representative of

the whole charity.

I think they did

0:04:530:04:57

a really good job. I would hate to

see them suffer because of it.

I

0:04:570:05:03

think they are being pilloried, I

feel sorry for them, because I

0:05:030:05:07

suspect it is quite widespread

within the aid industry.

It has made

0:05:070:05:11

them lose a lot of credibility. Next

time I want to donate something I

0:05:110:05:15

probably won't go through them.

The

damage done to Oxfam and weedy to

0:05:150:05:20

your dad's legacy, I suppose, of

what he achieved, must be very

0:05:200:05:24

painful for you. -- and also to your

dad's legacy.

Yes. He gave his life

0:05:240:05:34

for Oxfam. I cannot stop thinking

about how it would hurt him. But I

0:05:340:05:40

do have faith that 75 years of the

most extraordinary record will stand

0:05:400:05:44

in good stead in the future.

It's a

real shame because everybody who

0:05:440:05:50

does work for the organisation and

has been doing a fantastic job, and

0:05:500:05:54

all of the volunteers, get sullied

by the actions of probably a few.

0:05:540:05:59

Will it change your behaviour going

forward?

Probably. You would

0:05:590:06:03

probably look at different charities

to donate to rather than Oxfam.

I'd

0:06:030:06:08

still be happy to donate to Oxfam.

I

give regularly every month. I shall

0:06:080:06:13

continue to do so.

Tomorrow MPs will be quizzing the

0:06:130:06:17

bosses of Oxfam. We have heard that

Minnie driver and the Archbishop

0:06:170:06:22

Desmond Tutu have cup ties. Simon

Pegg is sticking with Oxfam. As we

0:06:220:06:27

heard from Roger, millions of people

who have been helped in the past,

0:06:270:06:32

where do you stand? -- cut ties.

Where will students get their

0:06:320:06:39

clothes from?

Exactly!

We must

support Oxfam at this time. They

0:06:390:06:45

cannot be taken under, allowed to

die, swept away, because of some

0:06:450:06:49

peoples behaviour. I'm sure they

will root out individuals

0:06:490:06:54

responsible for damaging their

reputation and will survive they

0:06:540:06:57

must survive.

It needs to happen

quickly.

0:06:570:07:00

Let's talk about the second series

of Damned. Brilliant reviews,

0:07:000:07:06

congratulations.

Thank you. It is

good. I can say that with all

0:07:060:07:12

sincerity. I had a minor role to

play. Is that even the right camera?

0:07:120:07:17

Are you filming a passer-by?

CHUCKLES

0:07:170:07:21

It is based on the working life of

some social workers, isn't it?

0:07:210:07:27

Children's social services.

It is

difficult to strike the balance

0:07:270:07:30

between the comedy of the situation,

but then there is some quite serious

0:07:300:07:34

issues which are tackled and talked

about within the sitcom. How do you

0:07:340:07:38

strike that balance?

It's hugely

impressive, what they have done. It

0:07:380:07:43

really is. It's quite upsetting, you

know, children being taken away,

0:07:430:07:49

families, difficult situations that

are encountered by children social

0:07:490:07:51

services every day. It goes

unreported, you know? Unless there

0:07:510:07:57

was a mistake, something slips

through the net, then it all hit the

0:07:570:08:00

papers. It is a show that takes the

work very seriously. It wants to

0:08:000:08:07

draw attention to the good work. But

at the same time they have assembled

0:08:070:08:10

a good cast of actors and have

written some very funny jokes which

0:08:100:08:14

many happen in the office. The jokes

are all at the expense of the idiots

0:08:140:08:19

making the mistakes. But they do

open up space in what is a short

0:08:190:08:24

half hour to shine a light on some

important issues. I think it's

0:08:240:08:29

great.

What kind of reaction and you

get from people who have experienced

0:08:290:08:34

situations like the one you are

talking about?

I have spoken to some

0:08:340:08:38

people who worked in children social

services, and it has been mainly

0:08:380:08:45

positive. Jo Brand is a kingpin in

the whole show. Will Smith and

0:08:450:08:52

Morwenna Banks write it, as well.

They are very keen for authenticity,

0:08:520:08:59

all of the procedural things that

would happen, could happen, and a

0:08:590:09:02

lot of the cases are based on real

stuff. Authenticity is important.

0:09:020:09:07

When it comes to a funny bit we had

to resist the temptation to clown it

0:09:070:09:11

up. You must keep everything on the

same authentic level.

You strike a

0:09:110:09:16

balance brilliantly. Here is a funny

clip with you in it.

Good!

0:09:160:09:22

Can I have your e-mail address?

I'm

just... I'm just out of a

0:09:220:09:30

relationship, actually, a bad one.

I

was just going to suggest that maybe

0:09:300:09:35

I can keep you updated on Sean's

progress.

Yes, of course, I shall

0:09:350:09:40

type that in.

You are really good

with kids. Better than some of my

0:09:400:09:46

staff.

I was thinking of a career

change, actually, maybe teaching

0:09:460:09:51

might be an option.

But it's tricky

at your age.

Yeah, right...

0:09:510:09:58

APPLAUSE

As we heard in the clip, your

0:09:580:10:04

character is having a midlife

crisis, really, isn't he?

He is. It

0:10:040:10:08

reflects a lot of experiences of

people in social services who find

0:10:080:10:15

the workload heavy, sometimes

outcomes are unsatisfactory. Lots of

0:10:150:10:20

people leave social services and go

to other careers. They have a lot of

0:10:200:10:24

sick days. Because people get burnt

out. That is a serious part of what

0:10:240:10:29

is happening. That is reflected in

my character, Al, who want enough.

0:10:290:10:34

Not that you want out of this

industry at all, you mentioned you

0:10:340:10:38

worry co-writer, but you are

focusing on your writing quite a

0:10:380:10:41

bit. You are doing a Masters.

I am.

I'm going to college every

0:10:410:10:47

Wednesday.

How are you enjoying it

as a more mature student?

I love it,

0:10:470:10:52

I went to Oxfam, I bought a coat!

LAUGHTER

0:10:520:10:58

Two years part-time, my course, all

of the freshers came in, they looked

0:10:580:11:04

like my children.

I bet they had an

interesting reaction that you are on

0:11:040:11:10

the course.

They don't know who I

am.

Come on!

Jonathan Creek was made

0:11:100:11:16

before they were born, but hopefully

they are watching Damned.

0:11:160:11:20

Damned continues on Wednesday

at 10pm on Channel 4.

0:11:200:11:22

Time for Ritchie Anderson to give us

the full story behind the footage

0:11:220:11:25

we showed you earlier.

0:11:250:11:26

And - as you're up to

the letter O in Qi - Alan -

0:11:260:11:30

we' think you'll find this

Outreageous, Out There

0:11:300:11:32

and Off the Scale.

0:11:320:11:34

Enjoy it. 28-year-old Scott Wright

is from Atherstone, a market town in

0:11:340:11:45

the Midlands. Since he was a kid

he's had just one dream.

For as long

0:11:450:11:50

as I can remember, it's been about

this day, it's about winning the

0:11:500:11:53

ball game.

He's been training for

the last three months for this

0:11:530:11:56

tradition that is unique to this

town. Being an ad from the Midlands

0:11:560:12:02

myself, I have heard a lot of

stories about this medieval game

0:12:020:12:05

that has been played every year on

Shrove Tuesday. To the people from

0:12:050:12:09

this town it is much more than just

a game. It starts with a giant

0:12:090:12:15

leather ball being kicked up and

down the high street. And it ends

0:12:150:12:20

with a rugby type scrum where

players try to be the one holding

0:12:200:12:23

the ball at the end.

This is where

it happens come up and down this

0:12:230:12:27

street, from one end to the other,

the whole surrounding areas know

0:12:270:12:31

about it, everybody looks forward to

it.

Why does everybody look forward

0:12:310:12:35

to it?

It brings everybody together.

As a child you look at the people

0:12:350:12:40

taking part as a hero. The ball has

been taking to all of the nursing

0:12:400:12:44

homes, care homes, schools, all of

the kids have a look at the ball,

0:12:440:12:47

everybody signed it.

There is no

referee. But students are on hand to

0:12:470:12:54

maintain order.

It can get a bit

tasty at times. That is purely for

0:12:540:12:58

the desperation of people wanting to

win. I'm fully expecting, if I have

0:12:580:13:04

got it, I load of blokes to come at

me.

There are no prizes for winning,

0:13:040:13:10

just the opportunity to be this

year's local hero. For Scott's mum

0:13:100:13:15

being a hero could come at a price.

It is scary. I have seen some of the

0:13:150:13:20

aftermath injuries. I get anxious. I

can't breathe. Until the klaxon goes

0:13:200:13:26

at five o'clock, then they start

peeling back the bodies, and I

0:13:260:13:30

think, at least it is over now.

It's

the morning of the big game. All of

0:13:300:13:36

the shops and businesses on the high

street are making their final

0:13:360:13:39

preparations. The crowd starts

together. -- the crowd starts to

0:13:390:13:50

gather. At three o'clock, the ball

drops. A group of people have just

0:13:500:13:56

been slammed into that shop over

there, trying to get hold of the

0:13:560:14:01

ball. It's just unbelievable,

really, I don't know where the ball

0:14:010:14:04

is now. Eventually the stewards get

things under control and the ball is

0:14:040:14:08

kicked up the high street. I've just

seen the ball come out of the

0:14:080:14:12

window, adding massive scrum, what

was that about?

It is the crazy ball

0:14:120:14:17

game of Atherstone.

It's great fun

to watch, I've been watching it ever

0:14:170:14:20

since I was a child. It's great.

I've seen people with injuries,

0:14:200:14:25

scratches on their faces.

It's like

that every year.

At the end you are

0:14:250:14:30

there for a good half an hour and

you are lucky to come out with your

0:14:300:14:33

life.

The final kick... They are

punching each other! Look! Oh! While

0:14:330:14:44

they fighting?

For the pride of

Atherstone, this is what we do it

0:14:440:14:50

for. -- why are they fighting? Come

on! This is all we know.

Oh! Go on,

0:14:500:15:00

lads!

There is a big fight in the

middle of the street. Why do you and

0:15:000:15:06

your kids want to watch that?

Because it is fun.

Where is the

0:15:060:15:11

ball? Scott is on the top trying to

get the ball. Amongst the people I

0:15:110:15:16

spot his mum, Diane.

I just wanted

to be over soon. It will be.

There

0:15:160:15:22

are police but they leave the

security up to the organisers. Tony

0:15:220:15:25

is the Mayor and he helped finance

the game. How can you ensure

0:15:250:15:33

people's safety today?

You can't.

People get injured. They have health

0:15:330:15:37

and safety people on site. It is

really at their own risk.

You must

0:15:370:15:42

have seen some of this disorder?

It

can be. But I haven't seen anything

0:15:420:15:50

that would raise my concerns.

What

would raise your concerns?

People

0:15:500:15:53

dying, obviously.

It's five o'clock

and the game has come to an end.

0:15:530:16:02

That was an experience. Whoever the

winner is, they've been through the

0:16:020:16:05

mill, they really have. McAuley

Riley was able to hold onto the

0:16:050:16:11

ball. He is the new Atherstone Ball

game champion. As the crowds

0:16:110:16:17

disperse, I catch up with Scott. For

me, watching that, it was quite

0:16:170:16:22

uncomfortable at times. For that to

be happening in broad daylight in

0:16:220:16:24

2018.

I get that. But you are not an

Atherstone lad. The people of this

0:16:240:16:30

town understand it. It is our

culture. The ball game cannot stop.

0:16:300:16:34

This is what we live for, you know?

Warren

0:16:340:16:38

Richie and Scott are here now.

0:16:380:16:45

Scott, you said to us earlier on,

when that shot finished, you

0:16:450:16:49

actually burst into tears.

Yes, I

was very emotional, 12 months of

0:16:490:16:53

preparation had gone into that day,

and this thing here may not look

0:16:530:16:57

like much to some but to harvest and

people it is everything. Another

0:16:570:17:02

year has passed by where I didn't

manage to take it home.

As we saw

0:17:020:17:07

and heard, health and safety is kind

of nonexistent in Atherstone, as far

0:17:070:17:12

as this is concerned.

They even

boarded up the chemist! You couldn't

0:17:120:17:17

even get a plaster if you wanted to!

You are punching each other, but

0:17:170:17:21

what happens when the game finishes,

then? Are you still at each other's

0:17:210:17:25

throats?

As soon as that Clarkson

goes, the winner is declared, we

0:17:250:17:31

shake hands like in other sports. As

soon as it is finished, it is

0:17:310:17:36

finished, we have a few beers, we

tell stories of old ball games. Our

0:17:360:17:40

stories will have a carry on through

the younger generations as well.

It

0:17:400:17:47

all takes place at A&E, does it?

I

am sure everyone in Atherstone is

0:17:470:17:53

over the moon that you are on the

one show. You were just visibly

0:17:530:18:00

shocked.

No, I have signed up for

next year! You said to me before if

0:18:000:18:07

you don't come from Atherstone, you

can't understand what it means to

0:18:070:18:10

the people, and if you win that, you

become a legend in the town. Your

0:18:100:18:13

family's name is in lights, and we

were walking around one day, and you

0:18:130:18:19

said it is John, who won it in 1994,

it is Bob, who won it in 1982.

0:18:190:18:25

Wheeling himself down the high

Street! I won in 94!

Even though I

0:18:250:18:32

can't understand why it was so

important. I would be terrible if I

0:18:320:18:35

was holding onto that all with one

minute to go, I would be like, have

0:18:350:18:39

it!

But the community spirit is

incredible, there are not that many

0:18:390:18:48

events like that.

It is a wonderful

town, full of wonderful people. That

0:18:480:18:53

day, we blow off some steam in the

afternoon but still we welcome

0:18:530:18:56

anyone to come, participate, kids

can get involved in the flick out

0:18:560:19:02

Golden Penny, there are suites,

pancake races, a lot of community

0:19:020:19:05

spirit around the whole ball game.

The names on the ball from care

0:19:050:19:10

homes and schools, it is a big

family thing.

It was everybody,

0:19:100:19:16

Juncker old, everybody from the town

of Atherstone that day was there.

0:19:160:19:19

Yes, it brings the community

together, but your mum was in bits

0:19:190:19:22

though. She wasn't that keen!

Do you

know what I would do, I would have a

0:19:220:19:28

decoy Ball, a couple of decoy balls.

It's over there! Pelle thank you so

0:19:280:19:34

much, Richie, we look forward to

your effort next year.

I am scared

0:19:340:19:39

to touch it now in case you bulldoze

me to the floor.

Big thanks to the

0:19:390:19:46

winner who lent us the ball for the

evening.

0:19:460:19:50

In a moment, we'll be meeting

the singer tasked with playing

0:19:500:19:52

Tina Turner in a brand new musical -

Tina herself calls her

0:19:520:19:55

an 'exceptional talent'.

0:19:550:19:56

Looking forward to that.

0:19:560:19:57

First, Jean Johansson is going river

deep, mountain high.

0:19:570:20:00

Situated amongst some of Scotland's

most beautiful scenery in the

0:20:000:20:03

Southern Highlands is the colossal

Cruachan dam, and beneath it lies a

0:20:030:20:09

marvel of engineering. One kilometre

underground, this is Cruachan power

0:20:090:20:16

station. Enormous turbines convert

the power of water into electricity,

0:20:160:20:22

totting up the National Grid at peak

times. -- topping up. Building work

0:20:220:20:30

started in 1969 and took six years

to complete. It cost the equivalent

0:20:300:20:35

of £420 million today, but a human

price was also paid. 4000 brave men

0:20:350:20:41

were tasked with tunnelling into

this mountain. Many of them had to

0:20:410:20:44

hand drill through the unforgiving

granite. They were nicknamed the

0:20:440:20:49

Tunnel Tiger 's, and their mission

was so treacherous, 36 lost their

0:20:490:20:56

lives during the construction.

0:20:560:21:02

lives during the construction. For

temporary macro, the memories are

0:21:020:21:05

still vivid full stop a much has

changed?

You can see where you are

0:21:050:21:09

going, hear things.

It is completely

different.

What were the general

0:21:090:21:15

working conditions like?

Not very

nice.

You knew someone was coming

0:21:150:21:22

near you because you are up to your

ankles in water at least and every

0:21:220:21:25

now and then you would get a wee tap

on your shoulder, just make sure

0:21:250:21:28

you're there. Because the noise...

And it was dangerous, and...

Smelly.

0:21:280:21:38

It was noisy. I take it the

incentive for you was...

Money.

What

0:21:380:21:45

were the wages like?

The wage

outside was about £10 a week, and we

0:21:450:21:49

had maybe three times that.

How does

it feel to be back here 50 years

0:21:490:21:54

later?

It brings back a lot of

memories, some sadness too.

At the

0:21:540:22:01

time, health and safety guidelines

were far less vigorous, making their

0:22:010:22:04

task even more precarious. Today, a

memorial stands in tribute of those

0:22:040:22:10

who lost their lives during the

construction. It must have been a

0:22:100:22:13

really hard time.

Yes, a lot of

young men, old men, paid a high

0:22:130:22:20

price.

How did you hear the news

when someone had lost their life?

It

0:22:200:22:26

went right through the whole works.

It has never left my mind, you know?

0:22:260:22:31

It sticks in your mind.

Of course it

does.

The power station was

0:22:310:22:37

considered a masterpiece of

engineering. 50 years on, the

0:22:370:22:40

workings and mechanics of the site

are very similar. Engineers David

0:22:400:22:44

Tyson and Ted Weedon worked here in

the 50s and 60s. Today they are back

0:22:440:22:48

to the first time, along with plant

manager Ross Galbraith. Ross, in the

0:22:480:22:55

1950s, constructing something like

this must have been a big deal.

0:22:550:22:59

Cruachan at the time was a fantastic

project, really pushing the

0:22:590:23:02

boundaries of technology at the

time.

And why did it have to be

0:23:020:23:07

built in a mountain?

The location of

Cruachan was really perfect, with

0:23:070:23:11

the upper reservoir and the lower

reservoir, you need to have them

0:23:110:23:14

close together. We have a huge body

of water for pumping up at times of

0:23:140:23:19

high demand.

And you too haven't

been here 50 years, so how does it

0:23:190:23:24

feel to be back?

It is good, it is

lovely to see it again. I am glad it

0:23:240:23:32

is still running, it is a robust

design and it is doing really well.

0:23:320:23:35

I worked on five power station

projects, and I have outlived three

0:23:350:23:38

of them. I suspect this will long be

running after I am dead and buried.

0:23:380:23:43

That is a good thing, your work will

be living on. The site was

0:23:430:23:49

officially opened by the Queen in

1965.

All the firms engaged in the

0:23:490:23:56

construction of this great project

will be able to go home with a

0:23:560:24:00

feeling of satisfaction that a good

job has been done.

APPLAUSE

0:24:000:24:05

50 years on, the power station still

serves millions of homes across

0:24:090:24:12

Britain. A testament to those who

risked their lives to build it.

0:24:120:24:21

Incredible shots can adjust this

beautiful landscape.

We are here now

0:24:210:24:26

with Adrienne Warren, the star of

the new Tina Turner movie, hello!

0:24:260:24:32

APPLAUSE

So it start in London at the Aldwych

0:24:320:24:35

Theatre on 21st of March.

Yes.

Now,

Tina is apparently the reason you

0:24:350:24:41

started performing as a child. Gueye

she is, my parents were Tina Turner

0:24:410:24:46

fans for as long as I can remember.

There was not

a time that Tina

0:24:460:24:50

Turner was not played in my

household. I learned to shape by

0:24:500:24:55

hips before I learned to tie my

shoes.

Service is meant to be.

I

0:24:550:25:02

guess so!

You have met Tina, singing

alongside her, how has that been?

0:25:020:25:08

Unbelievable, but this is such a

beautiful challenge and such

0:25:080:25:12

irresponsibility, because I am her

fan first, it means so much to all

0:25:120:25:16

of us and the fact that she is

involved, we are so honoured.

She

0:25:160:25:20

has very specific moves, so what has

been the hardest thing to master?

0:25:200:25:25

Tina Turner is a force, and she is

known as being a force, so I have

0:25:250:25:30

been training physically and locally

for this for months now. People love

0:25:300:25:35

her because of the energy that she

brings on stage, and she tells me

0:25:350:25:39

there are no short cuts. You have to

give 100% of yourself 100% of the

0:25:390:25:44

time, because that's how she treats

her audiences.

If you could sum it

0:25:440:25:48

up very quickly, we haven't got long

at all, but what a life she has had,

0:25:480:25:54

and this chart the ups, the downs,

the dark times on the celebrations.

0:25:540:25:57

Yes, we started with her humble

upbringing in that Bush, Tennessee,

0:25:570:26:05

as Annie May Bullock. Her journey

with Ike over to London, where she

0:26:050:26:08

becomes the Queen of rock and roll.

Light and shade, then. Adrienne will

0:26:080:26:15

sing Aquino classic in a moment.

A

quick time to say thank you to Alan,

0:26:150:26:22

good luck with Damped. Ten o'clock

Channel 4. Next week, actors Stephen

0:26:220:26:28

Graham and Lennie James.

0:26:280:26:29

Now, performing 'The Best' from

'Tina - The Tina Turner Musical',

0:26:290:26:32

it's Adrienne Warren

and the Ikettes.

0:26:320:26:34

# Each time you leave me,

I start losing control

0:26:340:26:37

# You're walking away

with my heart and my soul.

0:26:370:26:39

# I can feel you even when I'm alone

0:26:390:26:43

# Oh baby, don't let go.

0:26:430:26:48

# I call you, I need you,

my heart's on fire.

0:26:480:26:56

# You come to me, come

to me, wild and wired.

0:26:560:27:04

# Oh, you come to me,

give me ev'rything I need.

0:27:050:27:13

# Give me a lifetime of promises,

and a world of dreams.

0:27:140:27:22

# Speak the language of love,

like you know what it means.

0:27:230:27:31

# Mm, and it can't be wrong

0:27:320:27:37

# Take my heart and

make it strong, babe.

0:27:370:27:40

# You're simply the best

0:27:400:27:45

# Better than all the rest

0:27:450:27:53

# Better than anyone

0:27:540:27:55

# Anyone I've ever met.

0:27:550:27:59

# I'm stuck on your heart

0:27:590:28:04

# I hang on ev'ry word you say

0:28:040:28:07

# Tear us apart, no, no

0:28:090:28:12

# Baby, I would rather be dead.

0:28:120:28:17

# You're simply the best

0:28:170:28:21

# Better than all the rest

0:28:210:28:28

# Better than anyone

0:28:280:28:31
