Good evening everybody. Welcome to the One Show. On my way to the do,


and I thought I would host the show for a while. You look exsen


particular but lovely. It is Alex Jones here. And Chris Evans. With


days to go before the part of the Paralympics, tonight we're getting


into the sporting spirit. Joining us is Iwan Thomas. Who we love,


don't he. We have the torchbearers. And, this man... For London is


about to cry out with hearts and soul. Let the Games commence.


I love that bit. Let's enjoy the six syllables that are Benedict


Cumberbach. That was great. A lot of fun to do.


I was leaving the country to do a job, I told my friends and family,


there is a message you might want to like to see. Unfortunately you


weren't here to see. I missed so much of it, I saw it on America


television, I was in New Orleans, doing a film with Steve McQueen,


and it was, I was so proud, of our city, and our athlete.


genuinely missed the Olympics, so you're going to make up with the


Paralympics. What events do you want to see? All the track and


field. That's my favourite. Iwan Thomas will inform you of other


stuff like murder ball, in a moment, all night tonight, we're going to


play a little thing which we're going to call, Cumberfact or


Cumberfiction. Are you ready? Right. Shall we go


first. So you've told the Readers Digest, you thought the last series


of Downton Abbey, which people love, wasn't very good. Cumber fiction.


Well it was about one aspect, comparing parades, with Downton


Abbey, but we're different stories, there was one comparison with the


use of war, I used language I shouldn't have used but I would


never say about that in the series, my dad was in the Christmas special.


It is good? It is all the success it is getting, and recognition in


the States which is great. Were you taken out of context? It could have


happened. It can't happen on this show, because we're live. I fell


between two stools, don't tell me. It is impossible, can't happen on


the One Show. Never any controversy on this show, all was fine. You're


back with a new BBC drama that isn't sherlock and we'll hear about


had that in a bit. We are esuperexcited with nor nail-biting


sporting Olympics, with the Paralympics. This is nervous family


Paralympics. This is nervous family They were close boys, always did


things together. He had normal childhood, they lived a normal life.


Olyi and Sam Behind are my two boys, and we hope they'll do well in the


Paralympics Games in London. They're competing because they both


have a condition a type of musclar dystrophy. It is where the muscles


don't actually work properly, without Fatih and weakness there.


We started swimming with Sam, just after a-year-old, because they


advises us for therapy reasons, and for olyi, we did the same, we used


to take him mother and toddler when he was young. Musclar disto havefy


is degenerative, it is hard, you wouldn't be a mum and dad without


having that feeling, of golyi, both boys with the same condition, but,


you know, they've proved that they can do things with that condition


and disability and they're not letting them stop them. They have


the disability but they've overcome it and proud of it, when Sam won a


gold medal in Beijing, we were extremely proud of him, he was only


17, I'm pleased that Olly is going at that age, and we hope they'll


To have two sons competing is an amazing feeling, though nerve


wrecking and when we did go to watch them, I'll rather stay out of


the way and watching behind. Terry, Powell, I'm mark and Dan's


dad and I'm proud they're following in my footsteps. I'm Shelley Powell,


both sons mark and Dan are visually compared athletes, they're fighting


for Great Britain in the judo squad for Great Britain in the judo squad


and compete next Friday. My sons are registered with the visually


impaired and blind, through our family, we had a genetic disease in


the back of the eye. When Terry used to go training, we used to go


as a family, so they're aware what judo was, so I think it was matter


of time they went into it themselves. It was only when MMarc


got school age, he was cute who had glasses on for a couple of years,


then they had the same condition, and a few years later Dan was the


same. I'm proud of everything they do, and worked so hard. From


children, everything they did, they gave 100%. All right, thanks for


that. And Iwan Thomas is here. He knowss everything there is to know


about the Olympics. Basically, I've done a series of back Paralympics


show. I've got to try out the sports, like murder ball, for


example, it is called wheelchair rugby, imagine a wheelchair, as you


can see, a shopping trolley, it is organised violence, you got to get


the ball through the owe pents and only Paralympics sport where you


have a Formula One pit crew that weld your chair, it is like British


Bulldog, were the biggest boys, it is the same in wheelchair, it is


amazing, Britain are very good. We're ranked, fourth in the world,


but recently we beat the second and third best team, Australia and


Canada. We're up against Americans in the first round. How do you win?


Do they score points like rugby? You got to get the ball across,


there are tactics, there's another one gold ball, you've got blind


folds, black out blind, it's a 4 K- Fed sin ball so you can hear it in


the last minute, and they throw at you, you're in a big goal and you


have to save it, you're launching it at each other, and they do crazy


spin tech teex. They change the feature of gravity of the ball?


keep the bell on the outside spin spining, so last minute, you have


to dive. It is dangerous. How long is it?


Half an hour. Is that going to be amazing. Technology we've got, I


think people who are excited by the Olympics, normally the Paralympics


has been the ugly sister coming along two weeks afterwards, no way,


they've solid 2.2 million tickets, it will be huge. Are you hooked?


Benedict. I'm there. Wheelchair racing, which I tried as


well. I did a half marathon, the hardest thing was having to train


with Dave Weir. He had an advantage? He is lighter and power


to rate rasha, he can bench 140 kilograms, uphills he was pushing


Dave is ranging, his range of ability, he is the best in the 100


metre sprint. We have so many talent athletes. Although you have


everything, does trying the sport give you a different perspective


won't say I had loads of respect now, but now I have it. Aren't they


doing well, I used to do say, but having spend time with them, they


are professional athletes, who train harder than the able-bodied


athletes. I represent them so much, what they've gone through, and the


life storeics what put them in the a wheelchair. We've soldiers,


coming back, changing their lives around and becoming athletes. It


opens that door. You may think there is no sport for me, but there


is. 12 days, it starts on Wednesday, the torch procession starts on


Tuesday. You're working for Channel 4. I will be reporting. Very good.


Thank you very much. Win or lose the dedication of all those taking


part in the Olympics and Paralympics inspired our younger


generation with a host of new deserved role models. Very


different from a year ago when the rights from sparking so many


negative headlines. But the darker side of youth culture was nothing


new. Last year's rights shocked the country. One of the most disturbing


elements was the age of the ring leaders. But violent youth culture


is much older than that. It can be traced, back to these streets in


Victorian times. By the 1870s, the Industrial Revolution, made


Manchester the workshop of the world, abundant factory work put


money in the pockets of men, and they spent some of it sharpening up


their look. Andrew Davis from the University of Liverpool, has


written by the troublesome trend seters. They wanted to look


different, so they cultivated a style that made them stand out.


They wore peaked caps, which they wore at a tilt and angle and


distinctive hair cut, where short back and sides Boulogne fringe, a


donkey fringe. The other thing is the bell bottomed trousers, these


were very wide flares, they would round off the uniforms with brass


tipped pointed clogs. The Universal, identified the young men as gang


members and awarded themselves a nickname, skut letters, like modern


gangs, with the uniform and name came territory, turf wars and


violence. This joo this young man was the leader of the green gate


skuters from Salford. That face is astonishingly familiar, which could


imagine walking past him, through Manchester City centre today. You


get the same feeling when you look at the different scuttleers, we


think we know them. They would they afford this gear? This is something


a young person would save up for over time. Their clothes were so


important to them, as badge of status, they would money aside.


Newspapers of the times, are full of accounts of vicious battles


between gangs of scuttleiers. He said he was attacked by Callaghan,


was fell by a blow a bar of iron, whilst lying on the ground he was


kicked by others of the gang. But what they're trying do here is


fighting, not actually killing each other are they? They're not looking


to inflict fatal wounds but gain kueed yos, but showing they can


scuttle better than anybody else in the city. Why man chest sner


Manchester is the first industrial city in the world, the houses are


overcrowded. Their lives are lived on the streets. And that's really


where the spark for scuttleling came from. It looks similar to what


people today as describe as respect culture. By the end of the century


in slum areas like Salford, scuttleling lost its appeal. There


was plenty of poverty but in this area, there was a beacon of hope,


the Salford lads club. Still thriving today the club was


established in the erm 20th century with a simple mission - to get


young people off the streets and away from crime.


Lesley homes has worked here for many years. This club was set


newspaper August 1903, by these three gentlemen, who were wealthy


businessmen, along with others, they want a better workforce. On


the opening night there was more than 600 boys wanted to come in


here. They offered music, arts and education. This was the motto, to


"to brighten young lives and make good citizens". It is about getting


everybody involved in the society. The intention was to make sure the


gangs would fade away? Within a year, they had six football teams,


cricket teams and all sorts of things. If you could engage them,


you could socialise them and put them on a pathway. Getting


teenagers, strange new race of people, doing something was a major


step. It is believed this club keeps youngsters out of trouble.


is very old-fashioned stuff, it is kids playing together working as a


team. But across the country, clubs like this, have been in sharp


decline for a long time, haven't they? It is something we lost in


society, and this this has gooted lessons for everybody. Bored and


potentially violent young people were given outlet's for their


energies N sport and social clubs like this. We're bound to skrks


could that be the answer, once again? Good question. Thank you


very much John. Benedict let's talk about your big shiny new costume


drama, it starts in about, an hour- and-a-half on BBC Two. It is called


the parades end. At the heart is a love story? It is a triangular love


story between a man who marries, a wonderful character assaulted


Sylvia, and he is Christopher, and it testimony strange marriage, she


plays out and is thoroughly scurrilous and scandalous, and has


affairs, and basically tries to knock a reaction out of him, beyond


what he is giving her, which is passive kindness and tolerance. The


third party joins their lives, called, Valentine. Valentine. Well


done. Well done, from Alex Jones. One up, and you immediately see


they are like minds and like souls and there's this incredible


connection, and because he is incredibly damagingly virtuous man


he can't do anything about it, he sticks to the marriage vows, and


about the torturous outcome. It is funny as well. You want to grab her


and give her a kiss, this is you and Christopher being pompous.


I see the Association of Domestic servants is against the insurance


bill why would that be? Now is the chance to ask. Go on then. Well


bridge jit. I'm sure I don't know Sir. I'm sure I do, it is because


the national insurance bill violates the intimacy between the


servant and their mistress. character, taking on the mother-in-


law there? She represents her intelligence and knows Sylvia's


married not to her intellectual equal. He knows he can make a point


in front of her, and she will be fascinate, she is correcting the


enclieck peeda Britanica, he's doing it to keep his head down.


this a subplot between him and the morl? Not, Janet is stunning, but


that wasn't an intentional subplot. You say she realises her daughter's


married above herself Can I get her Does your mother-in-


law say that about you. Not about that legislation no.


appreciates him for who he is, and he sees the rifts. People are dying


laughing in my ear. Rebecca, plays Sylvia is phenomenonal. She's a


knockout. Now we've got a Cumberfact or Cumberfiction ready.


You said, that you are so sick of people criticising you were Posh,


that you were headingtor America for good? Cumber fiction. I've been


lucky in my schooling and professional career, to have a huge


amount of advantage, so I work hard to try and make the best of that. I


have done that by playing a variety of roles. It is easy to say


something and blow it up into a national debate, especially about


class. It is an important debate and should be good. If somebody is


seen to say something about oh us poor Posh people, immediately that


will vilify me, I never said that. It was bizarre, yes. Taken out of


context? I was out of the country, I got these texts and e-mails,


there are for Posh, arguing and your name is following the argument


through press and television. You're definitely not typecast as a


costume type actor, you've done different things, you're in The


Hobbit playing a dragen and Star Trek 2.


Is space class snls The future is rid of all class. It is all about


how fast your space ship is. Well, yeah. Who do you play in Star


Trek 2? That person there. There's lots of fighting in it. It is


different then to the Parade's End, you couldn't get more. There's not


so much fighting in Parade's End. Verbal jousting. Having said that,


there are obviously, a great swathe of the drama set in World War I,


which is very extraordinary. And moving. But, yeah, not the kind of


fighting you'll see in Star Trek. You get more brand new Cumberfact


or Cumberfiction in Parade's End. Now, we've not seen Jay for a


little while. As it is summer, sort of, we thought we'd send him to the


seaside. Don't worry, we made him keep his clothes on. The sun is


rising and the race is on. Just gone 5am and I'm on a tractor,


going out of more comb bay sands, in search of one of Britain's


greatest seaside creatures, they're out there, somewhere. We've got to


get to the fishing grounds quickly, the tide is quickly. We only have


half an hour. We're hunting for Morecambe Bay shrimp, trawling with


tractors. Are we then going to drive off with


these. Yes with these behind us, and these will cause a wave and the


shrimps are in the sand and they jump in the net. With the net set


the trawling can begin. But the rising tide isn't the only fracktor.


The hardest part is the weather. When you get the raining, driving,


sleet, It is not 9-5 job, is it? you go when the shrimps come.


shrimp are best caught in late summer on a low tide. Whatever time


of day that may be. Something calm be about this, you


have the engine and lap of the water. And behind us back there,


hope three, we're drawing in a harvest of lovely Morecambe Bay


shrimps. It is easy to forget we're miles


from shore. We've been trawling for 20 minutes now and it is time to


bring in the catch. So. There it is. The lovely little brown shrimps of


Morecambe Bay. The tide has tumped we need to leave the fishing


grounds. Micheal has been tractor trawling for two decades, his


father started 50 years ago, with a horse and kart.


They used to call the more comb sands the gold mine. Fishermen


would make a week's wages in one day. But the tide has turned on the


shriching industry. Shrimp stocks are declineing. Today's catches is


pitiful, worth about �30. You have half a box and a good box of place.


It is hard core way to make a living, not a route to great riches


and wealth. No. That's why there's no-one left.


Micheal and his dad are part what is part of a dying tradition. When


they stop doing it, it doesn't look like there's going to be anybody


else t would be a shame because we're going to lose what is one of


Britain's greatest delicacys, they're fabulous. But if there's


nobody to catch them, we won't eat them. Back on dry land and the


shrich are boiled for ten minutes. They've been in for four or five


minutes, and starting to turn the colour, they're going to brown.


They're cooled on racks just as they have been for centuries n the


past they've been peeled by hand, fiddly and time-consuming job.


you want me to pour them in. That's changed in the modern poting


factory, the shrin are sorted automatically and peeled by this


remarkable machine. It sucks the shrimp up, sends it down the tubes,


and actually takes one side off, and the other with the pinchers.


The peeled shrimp are cooked in butter and special mix of spices


passed down through the generations. Do you know the recipe. Go on you


can tell me No. After chilling the shrimp are potted and sealed as is


traditional, with a lair of soft butter, it keeps them delicious for


up to 12 days. They're a delicate flavour, spicey, you can eat them


hot or room temperature. I prefer to warm them and have them with hot


toast, so the butter soaks through. There is curiously heroic, as so


hard won from the treacherous sands of more comb bay, rushing against


the tides to get them in. And they're so tiny, delicate and


subtle. They're one of the great regional foods. Now, over the next


few days, four cauldrons will be letting England, Northern Ireland


Scotland and Wales, ahead of the Paralympics Opening Ceremony. There


was a special event to mark the start of a weekend of similar


celebrationness Belfast, Edinburgh, and Cardiff. At stock Mandeville,


580 torchbearers will start their relay to the Olympic Stadium, so


give them some support. For details, go go to this website. Chris is


with torchbearers, over there. Them are here, with a shiny new


torch. But first, Scouts, Lin, this is Lin, she was given a week to


arrange and Scouts, to go Snowdon This is high team, we were


accompanied by a Lord Coe as well, who came with us, and he was cheeky


chappy up there. And we walked in Snowdon and in adverse conditions,


these wonderful young people that I have in my care, lit a flame. The


flame was used to light the torch. Which was then held up on the top


of stho done, so we started the yourny of the Welsh flame. The guys


then lited their miner's latches, from our fire, and carried the


miners' lamps down the hill, and now in Cardiff. Your scouting group


is girls, boys, disabled and non- disabled. You have your flint do.


It live. Pressure' on, what a bright spark. And Ellie, what was


your job? I piled the sticks on top of the kindling and kept the fire


going. It is not easy? The wind was very strong. Well done the kouts


everybody. Thank you very much. My friendship knot, and now we have


members of the blind women's cricketers, blind and partially


sighted. Diane and Danielle, and Sarah and Teresa. Good evening,


welcome to the programme. How blind are you? Total, nothing. And you


still play cricket? Yes. When I'm at the batting crease, I stand and


wait and listen to the bowler, when he shouts play and throws the ball,


I go on the one knee and whack it. That's amazing. I can see it and I


can't see the ball. You're an all- rounder. Tell us the greatest


moment on the cricket pitch? bowled eight major player out.


Sarah, tell us about how you got involved with the team? I got


involved with cricket through cooking for change, and it went


from there, went through the young person's programme, and then they


introduced me to ladies team which was setting up, and from there,


getting better and better. You have the guide dogs here, do they get on


the pitch? No. But maybe next year. Sarah, sorry, you're with us as


well, tell us when you're taking the torch away? On Wednesday


morning, just after.30, we will be carrying it past Lords. - Lords.


And we need to hear everyone out there. You've just woken up a man


at my feet. That's fine. Apologies, we have to move on. Don't miss


these guys, you have to turn out for the torch. We have Louise and


Ian and Will. How did you get involved? Involved through by my


dad and swimming coach. So I got nominate. Bill, you're amazing,


generally? Jiefplt great. Round of applause for all the torchbearers.


Benedict, just before we go. Fans out there, are desperate to know


what will happen in the third series, sherlock, he tumbled to his


death, are you a ghost? How long have I got? 20 seconds. Well the I


think that is going... Is something, I can't talk about it. He is back.


Sherlock is back everybody. And if you want to look at Benedict, you


have 90 minutes, to see him in the first episode in the first costume
