Hello and welcome to The One Show with Michelle Ackerley.


As with every show, we had to make a few decisions


Choose some short films including one about 75 years


Choose a guest to interview, a guest who has been one


of Britain's most successful film directors for over 20 years.


Choose someone who won an Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire,


directed The Beach, 127 Hours, Steve Jobs.


And opened the 2012 Olympics in style.


So we could only really choose one person - Danny Boyle!


Of course we did. Danny, Ray to have you here. So lovely to have you


here. A bit embarrassed. We will be talking a lot more about what you


have chosen to do with your life through this programme.


Before we get onto that, the Oscar nominations were announced


today and as predicted La La Land has done well, receiving 14


What is it like for you to see a musical at the top of that list?


It's fantastic. Any film director, the ultimate dream is to do a


musical, an original musical, because it's the most difficult


thing I think you can do. It's the greatest achievement you could hope


for, really. Many of us spend our careers wanting and dreaming and not


quite getting there. I've seen La La Land. When you've got an Oscar you


are one of the ones that vote so you are not allowed to say even what you


like. But I saw it, and I saw Hamilton as well on Broadway, you


know the one that's coming to London. Because that's not in


contention, I can tell you that is an amazing musical. Completely


ground-breaking and I'm sure you'll be covering it. You must be really


chuffed with Dev Patel being nominated, one of your protege 's. I


don't know if you want to be called a protege any more, but dead chuffed


about that, and Naomi Harris as well. They've got a whole few weeks


of promotion still left to do, it is a whole circus you go on. But they


are brilliant, great pair, and will do well.


You won best-director for Slumdog Millionaire and this


That is a great dance, really channelling trigger. My kids, when


they were growing up, we used to watch the Oscars and I said if I


ever went up there I would do it like Tigger, and I was joking, of


course, such an impossible thing to ever think of. It happened and I


thought I could either be dignified or keep my promise to my kids, so I


kept my promise to my kids. They didn't even remember I'd said it,


they were too young. It meant nothing to anybody. They were


probably thinking, dad, what are you doing?


If you've ever felt frustrated while helping your children


with their maths homework because you're convinced


an answer is right, but the book says its wrong,


It might just be because the sums don't add up. Here's Joe.


We'll know when it comes to exams every little bit of revision can


really help. Which is why many parents are prepared to pay up for


these study guides and revision workbooks designed to give their


teenagers an extra edge. These books are produced by experts in the field


who often work closely with the exam boards themselves. You'd expect all


the questions and answers to be right, but you'd be wrong. We've


carried out a prog-macro investigation and found that these


revision guides can be littered with mistakes. Here at Fairfield high


school in Bristol, pupils aren't convinced that every revision guide


makes the grade. You expect to find the odd mistake, do you? Yes, and


then you aren't sure whether to trust it. You get more confused. It


really gets rid of your confidence. If you are stressed out from exams


that can tip you over the edge. For the head of maths at this school,


spotting and correcting those mistakes is all too often part of


his job. You spot them, you tell children you will change it in your


own but, next time at you give the heads up to the students. Is that


good enough? These are trusted resources. If there were more than


ten or 15 mistakes I would worry and consider using the publisher against


point we wanted to know just how accurate these revision books really


are, and better to help us out than our very own team of One Show


experts. Doctor Matthew is from the Cardiff School of mathematics. We


have given his team selection of GCSE and Scottish National maths


revision books. A QA, Ed Excel, OCR, SQA and WJ EEC. We asked them to


examine batches of questions from each book and they found mistakes


from the outset. Some of which caused some real head scratching. In


the answer they put eight, just in the top bit, that's not necessarily


true. Notebook was 100% mistake free. Oxford University press


workbook for the a QA exam had three errors in 174 questions. Perhaps


more surprisingly whether three books endorsed by the exam boards


themselves. The book for the OCR exam had eight mistakes in 1200


questions. The Edexcel book had eight mistakes in 563 questions. The


book endorsed by the Scottish exam board had five errors in 240.


However, bottom of the class was Hodder's an endorsed book for the W


J E C exam. Our experts found 90 errors, three out of 50 were


inaccurate, which of course is 6% if you want to know the maths. Making


that number of mistakes in an exam could spell the difference between a


pass and fail. All the examining board said final responsibility for


error-checking lay with the publishers. The publishers said they


do have rigorous processes in place, but accepted errors had been made


which will now be corrected. Pearson education added that it had already


spotted and corrected the eight errors in its workbook, it is now


being recalled and destroyed. But what about that workbook with 19


mistakes? Liz is Hodder's managing director. Yes, we fell down, but we


are human, we make mistakes. And this one has 90 errors in.


Inexcusable. Where our process fell down which is of real concern to me


and my team, there was not the final quality check that should have taken


place. We simply missed a stage because of the pressure of getting


the book out on time. Do you understand the stress and anxiety


this kind of mistake could cause? I know of a family where there have


been arguments, tears, fallouts, tearing their hair out, working


together trying to solve this and get it right but they can't, because


you've got it wrong. I absolutely understand that and sympathise


completely, and that is our fault. We have caused that stress. And we


are very grateful to the One Show for bringing these to our attention.


New and hopefully correct versions of this book are being printed. And


schools with this version are being told to bin it.


It is head scratching, all of the books had mistakes. Absolutely, and


a variety of mistakes. Sometimes you get the wrong answer with the wrong


question, sometimes you don't get all the information you need to work


out the problem. I've got some examples.


Here's the first one which asks you to find the range


An this isn't even a question, this is an example teaching children how


to do it. It is the difference between the highest and lowest


value. 27 is highest, five is the lowest, so 27, take away five, 20


two. That's not what they give you, they say the smallest number is six,


therefore the range is 21, so they've got the working wrong and


the answer wrong, not good. And this one is published by Cambridge


University press. Danny has seen this in the dressing room.


Turn your thing round, Danny, show your working. It's not been checked


by anybody. You have correctly found the prices. That is absolutely


perfect. You have times the correct numbers. You come out with ?14.85.


Danny, you got it right. Thank goodness! How pleased with yourself


are you that you got the right and the? I'm delighted. The book


actually says ?14.95. Oh, no. So it's 10p out. It's really close but


it's still wrong. An able student might spend too long trying to work


out why they got it wrong, less able student might just give up, and if


it shoots their confidence the night before an exam, it's a problem.


Frustrating and stressful. What happens to our high


streets if you take away Steve's been to meet someone who's


using some innovative thinking It's a real disappointment when you


see them closing. Hard work competing with the big retailers.


Supermarkets that do newspapers, birthday cards, butchery,


everything. Little shops are going out of business. The future of the


retail industry seems uncertain. Here in West Yorkshire one woman


together with local shopkeepers think they've found a solution to


take on those big businesses and revive the high Street. It brings


the local independent shops together. You choose what you like


from as many of them as you like, and you pick everything up from one


place. Customers want everything in one place and convenience but we


don't necessarily want to sell our principles or our soul or our town


to get that convenience. How can an app Compleat like this on cost? I


think it cost compete on cost. If I go to a supermarket I will end up


spending twice as much as I intended with all the special offers. When I


go to a local shop I get exactly what I need. Is it making a


difference to footfall? We can estimate it has been between 200 to


300 extra shop visits in the last eight weeks as a result of Shop


Appy. That can make a tremendous difference to a town. It is really


hard for independents to survive, so this will level the playing field


and let local people have a choice. Traders say it is running background


from supermarket click and collect services. Welcome to the butchers,


how are you doing with white do you think shops having an online


presence in this way can help build a community? I believe so because I


think we've lost that community spirit. Something like this can


bring back that community. If you haven't got time you can go on to


Shop Appy, if you've got time, pop in as well. Rosie, this has got to


be the perfect setup for you? It's brilliant, you just go online, click


the things I want and it's basically ready to pick up after I pick the


kids up. So when I get here at 6pm I've got everything I need for the


kids T. It's making my life a lot easier and I feel better because I


can support local businesses. In not lead the pick-up point is the local


pub. It's convenient and its social. Welcome to the tavern. Must be more


people coming through the door? Of course it increases footfall. Not


everybody who walks through the door will have a drink but even if they


only have a lemonade it still brings extra income to the pub. Shops by a


vital part in shaping the character of where we live. At in this modern


world they need an edge. The only way to compete against cheap


shopping online is to offer what it doesn't. Social interaction, and if


you're lucky, a drink with some new friends. Cheers. Not a bad idea, is


it? If it works, have a go, that's all you can do. We've got the lovely


Danny Boyle with us. Let's talk about Trainspotting 2.


We were chatting about this one being about time and how it affects


people, what do you mean by that? Obviously it is the same four


characters but 20 years later. So what they look like is alarming,


really. Film is extraordinary, and television as well, it freezes


people in time, it's easier now and if somebody loves you in the show


they remember you like you are now and then they lose sight of you and


then they get the chance to see you in 20 years' time and that an


freezes time and brings the past image up to the present image. One


thing it does with these actors, film stars, they are kind of our


heroes, they rejoin us as ordinary people because we are all on that


same passage. It human eyes is then. I was in two minds whether I would


watch the first one before going, we went to the screening to see it and


I thought I will not, because I want to hold those memories. And actually


the long-term memories that you have from that first film and actually


how they affect you emotionally, when you watch it and you are


transported back through time, you can't help but make that comparison


between your life and there's and I had singles. It has a real kick.


Were you aiming for that effect? The latter the fifth way but that's


the shoot of the characters, they do change, especially late on, there is


an extraordinarily moving scene, and then with Renton and his father. If


you betray them honestly do hope it will have the emotional effect on an


audience. Everybody was so cautious about doing a sequel and then coming


back and having the same impact. We were on this tower block, filming


Spud on the top of the tower block, there is another tower block and a


guy hanging out of the window, watching us as we are filming and he


says, this better not be terrible, mate! What was it like on set for


the first day? Getting everyone back together, what was it like, elated,


nervous? It is sort of a school reunion, which is kind of intriguing


that could be excruciating as well. Hopefully it wasn't. It wasn't for


us, we all bonded well and they were raring to go, their appetite for it


was enormous. It kind of gave me a kick in the pants because they were


ready. They are hugely experienced actors now. As a film director you


make one film every two years, they make one every year, or a TV series,


they were raring to go once we started. For you aiming for the 20


years, it is kind of 21 now. We missed it by about three weeks! We


had a go at ten years, the script wasn't very good. Then John Hodge,


the scriptwriter, we went up with him to Edinburgh for a week and sat


with him in a room, and then he went away and he wrote something much


more personal about himself, through the prism of these characters can be


sent it and I thought, we will do that. And these guys will do it as


well. We have got a lovely clip. Let's have a look at Renton, and


Spud talking about her different their lives have become. I haven't


heard that 100,000 times? Have you got 12 more steps from the? So be


addicted to something else! Running until I feel sick? You've got to


control it. Some people boxing. Boxing?! Is just an example. So what


do you channel it into? Getting away. Absolutely brilliant. Some


beautiful scenes of Edinburgh there. In the original one, a lot of it was


focused in Glasgow but for this one, it was Edinburgh although they? Or


the criminal to Glasgow and we didn't have any money so we couldn't


afford to do it in Edinburgh. But this one we have more money so we


thought, we have got to do it in Edinburgh, the original stories come


from there. The film belongs to that town, really, so we decided to shoot


it there and everybody is delighted to welcome us now. They didn't


originally. There weren't as many fans originally, they thought we


were just annoying. Film crews on your street. But now everybody was


there with open arms. How did you know when it was finished? The


second one? You have done the edit, the whole lot, you put it out there


and you know you are not go to tinker with it any more. You track


away kicking and screaming, you never really stop but there is


always a turning point and this one was about four weeks from the edit,


four weeks in, we watched it together me and the editor, John


Harris and it was like, we thought we made this film about time, that


was our scenario. But actually it's about masculinity, about these guys


who behave like boys, they have the irresponsible recklessness, they


don't care about anything, in the first film. It's this movement


through masculinity, they moved to manhood, the film is littered with


children, some of whom they are the fathers of. Many of them are


disappointed in their fathers and women who were also disappointed in


them. A reckoning has to happen. Then I thought, that's the film,


really. You don't know you have made that film and then you see it envies


think, my God, it's about that! In a moment, we will be talking music


with you. We know that is a big part of your life, vitally important to


your films. could reveal to the nation that


Margaret Thatcher was a fan of Beethoven, Nigella Lawson loves


Eminem and that if Ian Hislop was stuck on a desert island,


he'd insist on having a lifetime This weekend that show


celebrates its 75th anniversary - You remember where you were every


time you hear one of these pieces of music. It's where I don't know what


to take refuge in something think the three different. One of Radio


4's most best loved programmes, desert island discs, has captivated


listeners since 1942. It cut through all boundaries. Castaways have


chosen music to stir memories. We used to jive, this is tremendous. As


a tribute, we're trying our own take on their winning formula but this


time our castaways are members of the public. My favourite would be


sitting on the dock of the bay. Bat out of hell. Sailing by Rod Stewart.


And soon our islands are awash with memories.


Love song from the 18 hundredths. It was a song I listened to with my


grandmother. We were singing it on her hospital bed for the last week


of her life. It was on repeat all day throughout the entire week.


She was very much my best friend. Her personality was that of a


teenager. It was the love song to listen to with her. I couldn't


listen to it afterwards without crying or anything like that but I


joined the choir, we sang that song, so I was kind of forced to adjust


and adapt to it being part of my life. Since then I've even got a


tattoo of the opening line, I am it's surely carrying it around with


me. It gives me a lot of comfort having it on me.


My desert island choice would be I'm Alive by Celine Dion. I'm originally


by St Lucia, a tiny island in the Caribbean, quite beautiful,


friendly, I wanted to go back. I struggled with the weather, I was


feeling a bit sad, you have a lot to learn, food, style, it's like you're


starting all over again and I remember singing it and feeling so


exhilarated because I just felt, despite was alone in this country, I


had no family member, I was alone, I still felt excited, I still was able


to smile no matter what. It makes you just focus on the


positive and move on with it, that's why it relates to my journey as a


migrant in the UK. My favourite record is by Elvis


Presley, Bridge Over Troubled Water. He just sings it was such emotion


and feeling. It's just a beautiful song, I've listened probably every


day for a long time. Elvis's music gets me through a lot


of bad times and good times, makes you feel good, it really does. I


remember when my mother got divorced, mind and stopped me


playing Elvis for a while because it was too upsetting. The man's voice


is pure emotion. Simon and Garfunkel were good, but he sang it better!


There is a reason why Desert Island Discs has endured for 75 years.


Music brings memories flooding back. We are being flooded! My feet are


getting a bit wet. But you can see where they do it as a radio show.


75 years and still going strong! You were loving that film. The guy


talking about is grandma, that was very moving. They ask you for eight


tracks, you talked about doing it before, it's such a challenge for


you to choose. I couldn't go on. It would be to narrow it down to eight


tracks. We're going to ask you to narrow it down to one! You have come


up with a track for us, special children for you. Actually there's a


bit of it in the new movie, because I finally found a place for it, and


it's by the Watford clash. White Man In Hammersmith Palais. When I was a


kid, my dad used to buy the original Beatles songs, I have that as an


early shaping experience, when I was 18, punk happened, so it was a big


part of my life to be part of that movement. I used to go and watch the


Clash, when Joyce, passed away, I had never met him, I was so upset.


-- when Joe Strummer passed away. So that is a huge thing in my life,


that song, it is used in the film than they desperately try and


recreate the past, which is appropriate. The music in all your


films are so emotive, it evokes memories, how far in the process


does it come, do you think about the music you want to use at the


beginning? Sometimes, and it often doesn't survive because it's the


moral of going through it, you abandon it, really. It's more stuff


that goes on late on in the shooting or when you are working with your


editor and begin to see scenes from in front of you. One of the


tragedies of getting older is that I'd used to have an automatic access


to all music, I knew everything and suddenly you find you don't, you are


out of touch. You think, when did that happen? Now I do it through my


kids, they put me in touch with a lot of stuff in the new movie stuff


by Wolf Alice, and the Young Fathers, who won't recommend to


anyone. Is it right that you keep your Oscar under your bed? Yes... I


did have it out for a bit, and you can't look at it every day. It's


just like, oh, please! You got to live an ordinary life so keep it in


a box under the bed. Or maybe it's under the bed! In case a burglar


breaks in! When was the last looked at it? A long time ago. You don't


get it out at night? No, it's a wonderful thing, it's an


extraordinary thing and it's a wonderful process to go through, but


you have got to get on yourself. You are modest man, Danny, thank you so


much for coming in. Tomorrow we'll be joined


by two huge musical stars. From Broadway - Neil Patrick Harris


and 'she's the one that we want' - The Robshaws are going


back in time again.
