That's why she'll never do that again.

:00:22.:00:25.

Hello, friends, and welcome to The One Show with Alex Jones.

:00:25.:00:29.

And Chris Evans. Now across the country tonight

:00:29.:00:32.

reunions are taking place to mark the 30th anniversary of one of the

:00:32.:00:37.

most important weekends of the Falklands War.

:00:37.:00:44.

We asked anyone who had pictures of that time to send this in. We put

:00:44.:00:50.

them in a very special One Show exhibition.

:00:50.:00:54.

So tonight with the help of many of the families who sent in their

:00:54.:00:57.

pictures we will be opening the first ever One Show public photo

:00:57.:00:58.

exhibition. But now let's meet tonight's guests.

:00:58.:01:00.

Desert Island delight - Kirsty Young.

:01:00.:01:05.

And footballing film star Michael Sheen.

:01:05.:01:10.

As you heard, we are putting together our very first One Show

:01:10.:01:16.

exhibition, very exciting. Will you do the honours of opening it...

:01:16.:01:21.

the public? I would love to. Have you opened anything before, Kirsty?

:01:21.:01:29.

Probably a supermarket way back in the day. Really? How much did it...

:01:29.:01:34.

Probably more than you could afford. How about you? A packet of crisps

:01:34.:01:39.

in my time! No, I opened a youth club in Port Talbot, any home.

:01:39.:01:47.

you're both good with a ribbon and scissors? Yes. Was a ribbon

:01:47.:01:53.

involved? It was. It's so Carpet Warehouse. We'll be speaking to

:01:53.:01:58.

Michael about his celebrity Old Trafford event in a bit And how

:01:58.:02:03.

Kirsty will be honouring the emergency services in a ceremony.

:02:04.:02:06.

In April we introduced you to daredevil Gary Connery as he

:02:06.:02:10.

prepared for the stunt of his life. He was planning to jump out of a

:02:10.:02:13.

helicopter and attempt to be the first person ever to land without

:02:13.:02:15.

using a parachute. And then it started to rain and

:02:16.:02:18.

rain and rain. It's taken almost two months for conditions to be

:02:19.:02:26.

perfect for the jump, but this week Gary finally took the plunge.

:02:26.:02:34.

going to be exiting the helicopter at 2,400 feet. We fly approximately

:02:34.:02:39.

a mile. Outwardly I am calm and obviously I don't step off the edge

:02:39.:02:46.

until in my head I am ready. It scares me for sure. Yes, I am very

:02:46.:02:51.

excited and nervous. When he goes up in that helicopter... How will

:02:51.:03:01.
:03:01.:03:33.

Come on, Gary! Come on, Gary! Gary!

:03:33.:03:43.
:03:43.:03:53.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE It was so comfortable, so soft. My

:03:53.:03:58.

calculations have obviously worked out - and I'm glad they did. I am

:03:58.:04:08.
:04:08.:04:12.

relieved it's all over. The bird man! Congratulations, Gary,

:04:12.:04:16.

first of all. Thank you. But how close were you to opening that

:04:16.:04:21.

parachute? Not at all. Seriously? Seriously. I - straight out of the

:04:21.:04:25.

helicopter, I knew this is it. I'm going for it. I did have the backup

:04:25.:04:29.

of a parachute, but I had absolutely no intention of

:04:29.:04:31.

deploying it. What about the seconds before you leapt out of the

:04:31.:04:35.

helicopter, the final checks - you were checking the path will, you

:04:35.:04:40.

had the right angle of descent, whether you the right wind and

:04:40.:04:46.

thins like that? Yeah, myself and my wing man Mark was helping me out

:04:46.:04:48.

where we should leave the helicopter. He was the guy shooting

:04:48.:04:54.

the footage. Thank you to Mark. He was excellent. Once we had spotted

:04:54.:05:00.

and done some test jumps earlier in the day, we had spotted where it

:05:00.:05:04.

was. Thankfully for your wife and children you were completely

:05:04.:05:08.

unharmed in this. And any future children. Any future children.

:05:08.:05:12.

LAUGHTER Weirdly, the only person... Sorry.

:05:12.:05:17.

- that was harmed was our director Dan. Here's a look at what happened.

:05:17.:05:21.

I guess I haven't really digested myself what's happened. You all

:05:21.:05:28.

right? Yeah, fine. Someone's just fallen over. Go on, Gary. You

:05:28.:05:32.

didn't fall over. I have fallen from a much greater height than

:05:32.:05:35.

that. Typical One Show - this guy leaps from a helicopter, not a

:05:35.:05:40.

scratch. Our director falls straight over, nearly breaks his

:05:40.:05:44.

leg. The poor bloke - no-one was interested. You cared about him.

:05:45.:05:48.

Thank you so much. They were all just in the moment. You had the

:05:48.:05:52.

extra capacity, didn't you, to think about other things? You would

:05:52.:05:56.

think with all of that preparation, someone would have cleared up all

:05:56.:06:01.

of those boxes. Let's talk about those because you want a special

:06:01.:06:06.

mention for the box people, don't you? Yes, I would like to say a

:06:06.:06:10.

huge thank you. We had support from a bunch of people we didn't know.

:06:10.:06:19.

We put it out in forums on base jumping forums.

:06:19.:06:22.

Some gave me a nice watch to wear. Everybody just pulled together.

:06:22.:06:26.

Without them, it wouldn't have happened. When you hit, what speed

:06:26.:06:34.

were you doing? 70mph, something like that? Mark?Ish! About 65.

:06:34.:06:41.

apologise. So when you hit box at 70mph, how does it feel? In truth,

:06:41.:06:45.

because of the preparation and sizes of the boxes we were using I

:06:45.:06:49.

felt absolutely nothing. scrapes? Nothing at all. You're

:06:49.:06:55.

lucky it worked. Is it time now to pack up the suit in a box and call

:06:55.:06:59.

it day? Absolutely not. I have some other things in the pipeline.

:06:59.:07:03.

what? They're top secret. OK. Not necessarily this suit related - I

:07:03.:07:08.

am going to get fired as a human firework.

:07:08.:07:11.

LAUGHTER All right.

:07:11.:07:16.

But obviously I've got to convince people it's going to work. But I am

:07:16.:07:20.

hoping this is a springboard to allow to to happen. And convince

:07:20.:07:24.

your wife. Oh, she's all right. She's not going to be in the

:07:24.:07:28.

firework. We heard a story that you carry your flying suit with you

:07:28.:07:32.

wherever you are in case there is a flying opportunity. Absolutely.

:07:32.:07:38.

Come on. That can't be true. I have a rig with me plost of the time.

:07:38.:07:44.

rig? Yes, a base rig. I think we have some footage of

:07:44.:07:48.

Beachy Head and the Eiffel Tower. Were these opportune moments?

:07:48.:07:52.

Surely you must have realised with the Eiffel Tower - you didn't drive

:07:52.:07:57.

up and go, oh, there's the Eiffel Tower? No, we drove up specifically

:07:57.:08:02.

for that. Beachy Head? That was another day trip. Did they know you

:08:02.:08:09.

were going to do that or did you go up as a tourist? No, I had my

:08:09.:08:16.

parachute in a backpack. Was that naughty? Did you get arrested?

:08:16.:08:21.

exactly. There is a long story. I won't bore you with it. Bore us

:08:21.:08:29.

with it afterwards. A round of applause for Gary. Safe and well!

:08:29.:08:32.

Now, Michael, you actually get a mention in this next film, a film

:08:32.:08:37.

we think you're going to love. Are you thrilled?

:08:37.:08:40.

I am. Let's find out. Ruth Goodman's been to your home

:08:40.:08:46.

town to learn all about one of your heroes. In this house in Port

:08:46.:08:49.

Talbot lived a man as Welsh as they come.

:08:50.:08:58.

And with a voice to match. Hush, the babies are sleeping, the

:08:58.:09:04.

farmers, the fishers, the tradesmen, pensioners, schoolteacher, postman

:09:04.:09:10.

and publican, the undertaker, fancy woman, dress maker, preacher, the

:09:10.:09:15.

web-footed cockle women and the tidy wives. That valleys bread

:09:15.:09:19.

voice could only belong to the actor Richard Burton, and he first

:09:19.:09:23.

learned its full power out here on the hills above the coal and steel

:09:23.:09:27.

town of Port Talbot, but when he first roared into life in 1925, it

:09:27.:09:37.

was not as a Burton, but a Jenkins. Richard was born one of 12 into a

:09:37.:09:41.

mining family. When his mother died later in childbirth, he was sent

:09:41.:09:51.
:09:51.:09:51.

away from an alcoholic father to his sister, Cecilia. Here, sis gave

:09:51.:09:58.

him the attention he craved, but this didn't go down well in his new

:09:58.:10:03.

home as his friend Betty remembers. The postman didn't get on well with

:10:03.:10:09.

Ritchie. I think there was a bit of jealousy. I think her wife made

:10:09.:10:13.

more of Ritchie than he did. That's what we thought at the time.

:10:13.:10:22.

Richard left home, and at 16, he was taken in by his English teacher

:10:22.:10:27.

and mentor Philip Burton, from whom he'd take his name. It was Master

:10:27.:10:33.

Burton that helped him develop that extraordinary voice here in the

:10:33.:10:43.
:10:43.:10:47.

parlour. Used to bang on the door and go, will you be quote, boys? He

:10:47.:10:52.

used to give him classes to get rid of the Welsh accent. When it was

:10:52.:10:56.

all a bit too much for the neighbours, the hillside - what a

:10:56.:11:00.

better way to learn voice projection? From the Welsh hills to

:11:00.:11:05.

the Hollywood hills via a rave success on Broadway Richard signed

:11:05.:11:09.

to 20th Century Fox and became one of the highest-earning movie stars

:11:10.:11:17.

of the '60s. To cap it all, in 1964, he married the other big star of

:11:17.:11:22.

the decade, Elizabeth Taylor. Two years later in Warner Brothers'

:11:22.:11:30.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf, their fiery portrayal of a marriage

:11:30.:11:34.

hitting the rocks hit the big screens, much of it inspired by

:11:34.:11:38.

their offscreen romance. Liz won an Oscar, but Richard would be

:11:38.:11:44.

nominated seven times during his career - a far cry from his life in

:11:44.:11:51.

the steel and coal town of Port Talbot.

:11:51.:11:55.

Richard's diaries, held in the archives there, show he was already

:11:55.:11:58.

ready for bigger things. I was struck by the character that came

:11:58.:12:03.

out of the pages. He was interested in drama. There is about 40

:12:03.:12:07.

mentions of Richard going to the cinema. He's going almost every

:12:07.:12:12.

week. I think the cinema was an exciting window to the world for

:12:12.:12:16.

Richard. Despite his later stardom, Wales never left him.

:12:16.:12:21.

Well, by God, James Joyce was right. There is one place you do belong to,

:12:21.:12:29.

and it is in my case where I came from, Wales. Stick for stay, stone

:12:29.:12:33.

for stone, blade of gra, blade of grass were exactly the same as when

:12:33.:12:39.

I was a child. The coal that once poured out of Port Talbot has all

:12:39.:12:44.

but stopped but it still churns out great actors. Antony Hopkins is

:12:45.:12:49.

from here, and so too the young Michael Sheen. Who is to say

:12:49.:12:53.

whether there will be more - mind you, it would be rather hard to

:12:53.:12:59.

match THAT voice. Burton died at 58. Vodka and 60-plus cigarettes a day

:12:59.:13:04.

hadn't helped. He was buried in a Welsh red suit with Dylan Thomas

:13:04.:13:11.

poems by his side. There is talk of a blue plaque in

:13:11.:13:16.

Connault Street to this Welsh legend. Here's one to be going on

:13:16.:13:20.

with. Come on. What did you open? You

:13:20.:13:26.

just opened something. See on that blue plaque there - there is one on

:13:26.:13:31.

the first house Richard lived in in London in Hampstead, which I was

:13:31.:13:34.

asked to unveil on the morning I opened in Hamlet, a port that he

:13:34.:13:39.

had played as well. How apt. Do you have a blue plaque in Port Talbot?

:13:39.:13:42.

I don't. He's not dead yet. LAUGHTER

:13:42.:13:48.

I have some paving stones. That's the main criteria for that. I see.

:13:48.:13:57.

Yeah. OK. Let's move on, anyway. How much of a hero... Got a blue

:13:57.:14:01.

shirt on. Yeah, I have drawn a little blue plaque and stuck it on

:14:01.:14:06.

myself! Yeah, he was a huge, huge unfluence coming from a town where

:14:06.:14:13.

Antony Hopkins came from as well. They have produced some gems.

:14:13.:14:17.

some incredibly successful, talented people as well as Rob

:14:17.:14:17.

Brydon. LAUGHTER

:14:17.:14:22.

Of course you're a friend of his, so you can say that. A massive

:14:22.:14:28.

influence not just as an actor, but someone who came from a that town

:14:28.:14:32.

and did very well, because coming from Port Talbot, not necessarily

:14:32.:14:35.

feeling confident about people being interested in there, so

:14:35.:14:40.

someone coming from there like Richard Burton, a massive influence.

:14:40.:14:44.

Surely you must have had mentions of playing a biopic of Richard

:14:44.:14:48.

Burton. I was saying to Kirsty it's a tough thing playing someone who

:14:48.:14:54.

does what you do, but better. don't mind. I don't, but can I say,

:14:54.:14:58.

that voice. Michael just did the voice while that film was on. It

:14:58.:15:02.

was unbelievable. Will you do it? That charisma - that - no. It's

:15:02.:15:08.

just - you hear - "You hear those tones. It's very hard to replicate

:15:08.:15:15.

that." Is somebody writing the script?

:15:15.:15:19.

believe there is a script. Honestly, I would like to develop something

:15:19.:15:25.

myself, one day. I also think something that affected Richard was

:15:25.:15:29.

coming from a town like Port Talbot and then going to Hollywood. Once

:15:29.:15:33.

you have left a town like Port Talbot, it is very hard to feel

:15:33.:15:38.

like you totally belong again, once you have done other stuff. You also

:15:38.:15:41.

feel you don't belong in somewhere like Hollywood because you came

:15:41.:15:45.

from somewhere like that. I identify with certain aspects and I

:15:45.:15:52.

would like to explore that. He went back to do The Passion. You came

:15:52.:15:58.

back to talk to us about that. 2000 people came to take part with you.

:15:58.:16:02.

It was a non-stop 72 hour performance. One performance lasted

:16:02.:16:07.

for three days over the Easter weekend, over 2000 local people

:16:07.:16:11.

were involved. It began with about 200 people watching what happened

:16:11.:16:16.

on the beach, Good Friday morning, at about dawn. It ended on Sunday

:16:16.:16:20.

night with 15,000 people standing around a roundabout watching the

:16:20.:16:24.

end of the show. It was a life- changing experience. You were

:16:25.:16:29.

incredibly supportive. It was amazing, how could you not be? You

:16:29.:16:34.

like to push the boundaries. What next in your crazy mind? It is hard

:16:34.:16:38.

to know where to go. You were playing football in 90 degrees on

:16:38.:16:44.

Sunday. 15,000 people were not enough, I'm going for 70,000 at Old

:16:44.:16:51.

Trafford. Kirsty, you are here to talk about the brand new BBC 999

:16:51.:16:57.

Awards. Very special people are being honoured for these. There

:16:57.:17:01.

will be a special award. I'll tell you about them, the reason they

:17:01.:17:08.

came about, it is the BAFTAs on Sunday. People on television and in

:17:08.:17:11.

movies and good at giving themselves awards, but we know that

:17:11.:17:15.

what we do doesn't matter that much. So many people work in the

:17:15.:17:21.

emergency services. 999 has been going for 70 years. The phrase

:17:21.:17:26.

unsung heroes is such a cliche, but it really does apply. We are giving

:17:26.:17:32.

them out to people including 999 operators, who often save lives. On

:17:32.:17:36.

the night, it is going to be a swanky celebration. How do people

:17:36.:17:42.

qualify? Well, they have been judged not just by their peers, but

:17:42.:17:47.

people that they work with. We have been to people and said, can you

:17:47.:17:50.

tell us about these people? They perform the most extraordinary

:17:50.:17:54.

tasks every day, most of us would run in the opposite direction from

:17:54.:17:59.

them. We ask their peers, they have been judged by the people at the

:17:59.:18:03.

top of their profession, the chief of the fire service and police

:18:03.:18:09.

operations. When it comes to the special One Show award, those

:18:09.:18:12.

people are going to be nominated and they are just members of the

:18:12.:18:16.

public. They don't work for the emergency services, but we want

:18:16.:18:19.

people to vote for a member of the public that has done something

:18:19.:18:22.

extraordinary, above and beyond what most people would do. There

:18:23.:18:29.

are going to be tears? It will be a roller-coaster of emotions. I'd

:18:29.:18:32.

been reading through the nominations, and I'm already crying.

:18:32.:18:40.

You know, when you have kids... People say, mum, why do you watch

:18:40.:18:46.

the news, you get so upset? Now you know. I cried at Ground Force, at

:18:46.:18:51.

somebody's decking. But the stories are incredible. I suppose the great

:18:51.:18:57.

thing about the 999 awards is that it is an absolute celebration. Out

:18:57.:19:01.

of some of the very distressing and tragic stories, there is a triumph

:19:01.:19:04.

at the end. A lot of people are scared of watching them because

:19:04.:19:10.

they don't want to be upset. But it is the right kind of being upset,

:19:10.:19:15.

isn't it? It is more of a celebration of their work. As you

:19:15.:19:21.

say, it is to honour these unsung heroes. Sometimes, it can make you

:19:21.:19:26.

feel tender. I work on Crimewatch and every month you go through the

:19:26.:19:30.

roller-coaster of watching very constructions, talking to the

:19:30.:19:33.

senior investigating officers and you think that D world is a hellish

:19:33.:19:37.

place. Every month, the calls come in and we get the most

:19:37.:19:42.

extraordinary Leeds. The 999 Rewards is similar. You think that

:19:42.:19:46.

terrible things happen to people, but there are many people out there

:19:46.:19:53.

willing to do more than the right thing. We'll see if you feature on

:19:53.:19:58.

that after this football match! The blue plaque might be needed.

:19:58.:20:05.

legs are creaking a little. Last week we had the Olympic flame.

:20:05.:20:14.

week what we have done is we have Setting fire to the Christmas

:20:14.:20:22.

pudding. Is this all has become of the flambe in this country? Don't

:20:22.:20:30.

bet on it. Gerry Wray is an expert in the art of flambe. He is the

:20:30.:20:36.

master cook at Simpson's-in-the- Strand in London. Today he is

:20:36.:20:39.

concocting a flambe spectacle for a group of diners well used to

:20:39.:20:49.
:20:49.:20:50.

dealing with a bit of fire. Meet the firefighters of Surrey. At 63,

:20:50.:20:54.

Area Commander Mythe -- modern styles is believed to be Britain's

:20:54.:21:00.

oldest full-time firefighter. His dedication will be honoured when he

:21:00.:21:05.

becomes an Olympic torch bearer. A lifetime dealing with flames, and

:21:06.:21:09.

yet lunchtime at the station rarely gets more fiery than beans on toast.

:21:10.:21:14.

But all of that is about to change as the firefighters arrive at the

:21:14.:21:20.

restaurant. Jerry is hard at work in the kitchen. Why do we flambe?

:21:20.:21:28.

For the spectacle. Alcohol goes in and a huge flame flicks off the pan.

:21:28.:21:38.
:21:38.:21:40.

It is a moment. Our starter today is flambe langoustines, in sambuca.

:21:40.:21:45.

The flames are produced by heating liqueurs or spirits and setting

:21:45.:21:54.

We are burning the alcohol off and taking it back to the natural

:21:54.:21:58.

sweetness. The reduced alcohol sweetness makes a big impression.

:21:58.:22:03.

It's beautiful. It really does bring out the sweetness. While we

:22:03.:22:06.

steady ourselves for the next course, I am keen to grab a word

:22:06.:22:12.

with Malcolm about his Olympic torch duty. I'm honoured and proud

:22:12.:22:15.

to be carrying the torch. Presumably there are fewer health

:22:15.:22:20.

and safety issues when you are running with the naked flame?

had much banter from people at work. Time for the main course. It was

:22:28.:22:34.

something that was in the mid- 80s. It was quite a big thing. He has

:22:34.:22:37.

cut one piece of steak without alcohol and the other with a brandy

:22:37.:22:46.

to see if the firefighters can This is the one that has been done

:22:46.:22:51.

without brandy. It is lovely, but this one is far more tender and

:22:51.:22:56.

sweet. The first bite you take is very sweet. Considering the branded

:22:56.:23:02.

that went in there, it's quite delicate. I know you cook at home,

:23:02.:23:06.

have you ever attempted to flambe? No, I don't want to set fire to my

:23:06.:23:12.

kitchen. That would be a bit embarrassing! Some believe that it

:23:12.:23:18.

was invented in 1895, when a clumsy French waiter set light to a plate

:23:18.:23:22.

of pancakes For the Future King Edward the 7th. Whether they were

:23:22.:23:26.

ever serve to King Edward or not, Craig Cizek is certainly on the

:23:26.:23:35.

firefighter menu. They are cooked with orange liqueur. It's a big hit.

:23:35.:23:42.

So, better than beans on toast? Certainly. Burnt toast, at that.

:23:42.:23:47.

It's beautiful. I have a sweet tooth. The orange flavour is

:23:47.:23:53.

beautiful. The best I had, really. Clearly, there is a lot more to

:23:53.:23:58.

flambe than just Christmas puddings. It doesn't just make the food

:23:58.:24:02.

looked terrific, it makes it taste terrific as well. Please, do as

:24:02.:24:08.

they guys say... Please don't try this at home! Not even in the

:24:08.:24:11.

Olympic year? You can have a flame in the kitchen. Not that big, you

:24:11.:24:21.
:24:21.:24:25.

They loved that, there. They did. What was your favourite? Crepes.

:24:25.:24:35.
:24:35.:24:35.

It's a classic. The marvellous liqueur, sugar, alcohol. Brilliant.

:24:35.:24:38.

It doesn't happen enough in restaurants. Bring the theatre into

:24:38.:24:44.

the dining room. Them are health and safety issues. You have some

:24:44.:24:49.

experience of the catering trade. My old mining is in the catering

:24:49.:24:53.

business. Have you heard of any health and safety issues? Not in

:24:53.:24:57.

his restaurant, they just get on with it. One chef was saying that

:24:57.:25:01.

they couldn't do it because their ceilings were too low. I'm just

:25:01.:25:09.

passing on what I know. Should we get down to a Olympic news? We have

:25:09.:25:15.

had a preview of what the prices could be for food and drink. A Test

:25:15.:25:25.
:25:25.:25:30.

That had better be a good hot dog. Is it a real dog? The most

:25:30.:25:35.

controversial, and these were just the once at the Test event, one

:25:35.:25:39.

pound 60p for a bottle of water, especially seeing as you cannot

:25:39.:25:44.

take it on to the site in amounts of more than 100 mm. They do seem

:25:44.:25:50.

to be able to stow controversy, even when they don't need to.

:25:50.:25:53.

Augusta, the Majors, the golf tournament, they do the opposite.

:25:53.:26:03.
:26:03.:26:04.

It is $1.50 for a beer. They are good reasons for doing it, we know

:26:04.:26:08.

why the tickets cost so much. Perhaps once you get into the

:26:08.:26:14.

ground you should not have to pay �1.60 for a bottle of water.

:26:14.:26:19.

Tickets, there have been more tickets discovered? They found 3000

:26:19.:26:25.

more. Down the back of a very large sofa? I put in for an enormous

:26:25.:26:29.

number, knowing it would be difficult. I got two, beach

:26:29.:26:39.
:26:39.:26:41.

You won. You know they are not going to be wearing bikini is this

:26:41.:26:45.

year? That is why I am not taking them, I'm going on holiday so we

:26:45.:26:49.

will have to pass them to somebody else. This Olympics, the last time

:26:49.:26:54.

it was in London was 1948 during rationing. We have had a look at

:26:54.:26:58.

what the athletes hand. We have a board showing what they had. This

:26:58.:27:05.

was then in 1948. The average adult ration was 2600 calories. The

:27:05.:27:11.

athletes had 5500, made up from a lot of fat and carbohydrate. Six

:27:11.:27:19.

ounces of meat, 1 and a half pounds of potatoes. We had Michael Price,

:27:19.:27:26.

the Olympian. His big memory was eating potato sandwiches. Its

:27:26.:27:33.

carbohydrate squared. The luxury, he remembered, was bits of

:27:33.:27:38.

pineapple. Some of the foreign countries competing, they were a

:27:38.:27:42.

bit concerned about their athletes. The Chinese were sending bamboo

:27:42.:27:48.

shoots. The Mexicans were sending in offal and the French sent a

:27:48.:27:58.

refrigerated train full of French wine. Red wine? I would assume so.

:27:58.:28:03.

They're very hot summer. We just want to welcome the whole of Wales

:28:03.:28:07.

that have just joined us. It's Michael Sheen, your very own.

:28:07.:28:16.

were they not with us before? been to Wales. Congratulations. And

:28:16.:28:20.

you came back! They got you back out again... War back in again?

:28:20.:28:24.

of the reasons the audience is so packed is that many of them are

:28:24.:28:27.

here for the opening of the first ever photo exhibition made up

:28:27.:28:30.

entirely of pictures sent in by viewers of The One Show.

:28:30.:28:36.

Falklands anniversary exhibition has some amazing pictures. This is

:28:36.:28:44.

Tom Chater and his pals playing during the occupation. He is here

:28:44.:28:54.
:28:54.:28:54.

I mean, this is one of those photographs that sort of doesn't

:28:54.:28:59.

need any explanation. I know you're going to give us one, but you can

:28:59.:29:04.

tell it's so important and dramatic and poignant. I presume that's you

:29:04.:29:09.

climbing on the boxes... That's me and my brother Bill on the right,

:29:09.:29:14.

who has cheered up since then and my friend Simon on the right and my

:29:14.:29:18.

other friend David with his back to the photo. My mum and dad had

:29:18.:29:22.

opened a shop a few months before the conflict, and the various boxes

:29:22.:29:27.

that the stock came down in and presumably a few old motorbike

:29:27.:29:36.

wheels and so on - we used to make HMS Invincible or Hermes. We used

:29:36.:29:41.

to argue over which ones the. Our bikes were Harriers. We'd have

:29:41.:29:47.

wooden guns we'd use to shoot the Argentine soldiers as they'd walk

:29:47.:29:53.

past. My mum tells me about this but you experienced this in the

:29:53.:29:59.

'80s. You were occupied at the time. Were you scared? If you were, did

:29:59.:30:04.

your family protect you from things you didn't need to know about?

:30:04.:30:09.

I think mum and dad didn't sleep much. I remember being very scared

:30:09.:30:13.

that morning. An Argentine patrol went around. I guess they went

:30:13.:30:18.

around every house doing a census checking for any Marines that might

:30:18.:30:22.

have been there. That must have been - Suddenly, you go from a

:30:22.:30:26.

quiet existence to having armed soldiers with machine guns on the

:30:26.:30:30.

door questioning why dad has just put the BBC on. They couldn't

:30:30.:30:34.

understand why dad turned the radio on, and this is the BBC News - we

:30:34.:30:40.

have reports coming in - the Falklands have been invaded. They

:30:40.:30:45.

said "Why are you listening to this?" He said, "We're British."

:30:45.:30:48.

was literally in your front garden. Yeah. You have your little four-

:30:48.:30:52.

year-old. That's why you're here. You're here because of your son.

:30:52.:30:55.

Tell thus story. Yes, we always lived in the Falklands, born and

:30:55.:30:58.

brought up there, only came over here for college, training, so on.

:30:58.:31:02.

Few weeks before this guy was born, we discovered there was a possible

:31:02.:31:07.

problem in the Falklands - you get a scan at 32 weeks just in case

:31:07.:31:10.

there is something that has been missed, and there had been, so over

:31:10.:31:16.

we came, and he is waiting for a kidney. He should have had mine a

:31:16.:31:24.

week ago on Wednesday, but the surgeon was sick, unfortunately.

:31:24.:31:27.

(Murmuring) But a big thumbs-up to the staff in

:31:27.:31:31.

Bristol, they have managed to reschedule us for a week on Tuesday.

:31:31.:31:37.

So you're four years in the waiting. Well, knowing we needed a kidney

:31:37.:31:41.

for the last four, but we had to wait for him to get big enough.

:31:41.:31:44.

Thank you for that. APPLAUSE

:31:44.:31:50.

Fantastic. Right. Last week - got to go over here I

:31:50.:31:53.

am afraid. I'll tell you why when we get to the VT - can't dell you

:31:53.:31:57.

now. Last week an animal was reported missing from a zoo in

:31:57.:32:00.

Devon. Miranda went to meet the brave men who caught the fearsome

:32:00.:32:04.

creature. MUSIC

:32:04.:32:08.

A wild animal on the loose sounds like something from the movies.

:32:08.:32:12.

But for 12 hours last week, it was reality for this quiet little

:32:12.:32:19.

corner of Devon. Thankfully, it was less a case of

:32:19.:32:23.

Jurassic Park and a bit more like Madagascar. Has anyone ever told

:32:23.:32:27.

you that you look like a supermodel?

:32:27.:32:34.

As cheeky as King Julian from the kings' animated film, this lemur

:32:34.:32:42.

saw an opportunity to expand his horizons and took it. This is the

:32:42.:32:45.

naughty Sambava, who got out. He's a local celebrity. They have free

:32:45.:32:50.

range of the park. How big is the park? It's 28 acres, and they think

:32:50.:32:55.

the actual whole of the 28 acres is their territory. They have started

:32:55.:32:59.

venturing outside the parks which is where we have a problem. Look at

:32:59.:33:03.

those eyes. How could you resist those eyes? If that was to land in

:33:03.:33:08.

your garden, you would want to keep it they're very mischievous animals.

:33:08.:33:12.

What sort of things do they get up to in the park? They're very

:33:12.:33:15.

naughty. We were a bit surprised to see them trying to aggravate the

:33:15.:33:20.

lions. The lions weren't too happy. They go and annoy the pigmy goats.

:33:20.:33:24.

We have seen them jump into the enclosure, and the goats try to

:33:24.:33:28.

head-butt them, and they box them in the face. Did he get out on his

:33:28.:33:33.

own? They tend to go out in a group of all five of them, and being the

:33:33.:33:37.

only male in the group, whether he got fed up with nagging females and

:33:37.:33:40.

decided to get some time out, maybe that was his choice. I like that

:33:40.:33:44.

idea. They went across all of these

:33:44.:33:48.

fences... Right. Because it is in that direction. And they can leap

:33:48.:33:53.

across that quite easily? Well, easily. Now, we're here, and

:33:53.:33:57.

Sambava eventually got picked up here over 12 hours later the next

:33:57.:34:00.

morning a full two or three miles away.

:34:00.:34:05.

And in doing so, he would have had to have crossed two roads, gone

:34:05.:34:10.

through three areas of woodland and also crossed a couple of streams.

:34:10.:34:14.

Potentially, dangerous for our little chap. The rumour is some of

:34:14.:34:21.

the land around here is owned by Damien Hirst. We all know about his

:34:21.:34:26.

track record with shark and cows. Whatever route he took, thankfully

:34:26.:34:31.

he ran into someone friendly. The Denvers live in the village where

:34:31.:34:38.

he ended up. Hi, chaps. It's not an everyday okurns finding a lemur in

:34:38.:34:44.

your front garden? We were on our way to work and we saw a lemur.

:34:44.:34:49.

Did he hop up on here? He waited down here for a little bit and then

:34:49.:34:53.

jumped up on top of the porch. safely back home, the wildlife park

:34:53.:34:59.

are considering a roof for their enclosure, but I have another idea

:34:59.:35:05.

to make these cheeky chappies stay put - maybe some celebrity company.

:35:05.:35:08.

Now, what about that? There is Chris, and there is Alex. Look.

:35:08.:35:18.

She's very nice. Oh, Chris, you I know! OK. Kirsty got whipped by

:35:18.:35:27.

the lemur's tale then? I did. calm, gentle. He just knocked my

:35:27.:35:32.

photograph over in the cage! Really? Yeah, in the film. He's

:35:32.:35:39.

just chewing up a few leaves. He's absolutely harm louse. It's Friday.

:35:39.:35:46.

It's Foody Friday. It's lemur Foody Friday! He's a beautiful ring-tail

:35:46.:35:53.

lemur called Curtis. He was born in captivity in Oxfordshire.

:35:53.:36:02.

Unfortunately, he's the bottom of the pecking order. The females rule.

:36:02.:36:07.

I know, Chris! Can lemurs survive in the wild? Certainly not in

:36:07.:36:10.

Britain. He's born and bred in Britain. That's all he knows. The

:36:10.:36:14.

climate here is kind of mild and wet - apart from at the moment.

:36:14.:36:19.

Over in Madagascar, it's hot and humid and cool and dry - no chance.

:36:19.:36:23.

Predators - he doesn't know what the predators are. He could be

:36:23.:36:28.

picked off at any time. He'd probably get beaten up on the roads,

:36:28.:36:34.

and he's imprinted on humans as well. He thinks we're our his

:36:34.:36:38.

friends. And Madagascar, it's tough for the lemurs. It's tough to say

:36:38.:36:42.

what's going on there - the problem there, deforestation. Most of the

:36:42.:36:45.

lemurs live in forests. What's happened here is all the trees have

:36:45.:36:49.

gone. Basically, they can't soak up the water when it rains. It runs

:36:49.:36:54.

off, floods the whole area. Look at these massive plantation where the

:36:54.:36:57.

rain should be. Unfortunately, the crops and plantation are done for

:36:57.:37:03.

them. Unfortunately, as well, the Madagascar people love to eat

:37:03.:37:10.

lemurs. Such a shame. How could you eat this lovely little beast.

:37:10.:37:14.

one of the loveliest creatures I have had on television.

:37:14.:37:21.

Right. Now, other escapees we might want to hear about? We have amazing

:37:21.:37:28.

footage here of an imaginative Golden Eagle called Goldie that

:37:28.:37:31.

escaped from Los Angeles Zoo in 1965. Look at this. The dog gets

:37:32.:37:36.

easily as good as it gets, and eventually the Golden Eagle was

:37:36.:37:39.

retrieved by the keeper after 12 days with a long line of rope and

:37:39.:37:48.

Golden Eagle. Bear in mind this is an imagine that lives in the wilds

:37:48.:37:56.

of Scotland and would normally be - - not be in the centre of Scotland.

:37:56.:38:02.

Finally, in Longleat safari park in 1988 apparently one of the keepers

:38:02.:38:09.

did a head count and couldn't find this seal. She swum 30 miles down

:38:09.:38:17.

the loch. They tried to lure her back, wasn't bothered about her

:38:17.:38:22.

kids. They managed with food, like I'm doing, to entice her down to

:38:22.:38:31.

the culvert and recaptured her. Thank you very much. And thank you

:38:31.:38:34.

to Curtis. Whipping her in the face - shame we didn't get that on

:38:34.:38:42.

camera. Was it a whip or a waft? Was there pain? But I liked it.

:38:42.:38:46.

That was my next question. Now, we all remember Boris Johnson

:38:46.:38:50.

claiming that ping pong was coming home after the last Olympic Games.

:38:50.:38:53.

The wait -- wait is nearly over, and for one family it will be like

:38:53.:38:59.

the return of a long lost relative. Ping-pong is the fastest racket

:38:59.:39:06.

sport on the planet. China might have claimed it as its

:39:06.:39:10.

national sport in the 1950s, but ping-pong is as British as lawn

:39:10.:39:16.

tennis. In fact, it started here over a hundred years ago.

:39:16.:39:22.

Since 1795 the family business Jaques of London have been making

:39:22.:39:30.

some of our favourite games. From Snakes and ladders to Snoop, they

:39:30.:39:35.

have an eye for spotting a great game.

:39:35.:39:41.

In 1851 the founder won a gold medal for croquet.

:39:41.:39:47.

But he had another ingenious move. 1877, Wimbledon hosted its first

:39:47.:39:50.

lawn tennis Championship, and the upper classes were hooked. Soon,

:39:50.:39:57.

they brought it indoors. After dinner, the plates were cleared,

:39:57.:40:06.

and cigar boxes became the bats, and they played tennis on their

:40:06.:40:15.

tables - table tennis. In 1890, Jake Foster patented a game of

:40:15.:40:21.

compendium, but one year later Jaqueffects would go one further,

:40:21.:40:28.

he brought about another version of the table tennis game called Gosima.

:40:28.:40:33.

He got it patented. The modern-day version of the game was born. At

:40:33.:40:43.

the company museum, I am meeting Joe Jaques. Two bats and a very

:40:43.:40:51.

light feather-weight gaul, feather- weight ball being named after the

:40:51.:40:57.

light-weight goes imer Are the rules inspired by lawn tennis?

:40:57.:41:03.

but it's not really tennis indoors. It's a whole new game.

:41:03.:41:12.

Then they aced it, renaming their game ping-pong, the name inspired

:41:12.:41:18.

by the sound of the game in play. It was when it was launched in

:41:18.:41:21.

conjunction with Hamleys it really took off. Ping-pong went global

:41:21.:41:26.

with a little help from Parker Brothers, the people behind

:41:26.:41:30.

Monopoly. In competition it became the official-sounding table tennis,

:41:30.:41:36.

and in 1926 London hosted the first tennis World Championships.

:41:36.:41:44.

Tell me how the bats have changed. The early bats were Velum covered,

:41:44.:41:50.

like with leather, like a drum. Then we had sand-covered paper bats,

:41:50.:41:54.

moving into a cork phase, then eventually the rubber material we

:41:54.:41:58.

see today, so they have a lot more power, a lot more spin. I doubt

:41:58.:42:00.

without that progression it would have ever became the Olympic game

:42:00.:42:08.

it is today. This secondary school will be the official training

:42:08.:42:13.

centre for the Olympic Japanese tennis team.

:42:13.:42:17.

Over 300 million people around the world now play table tennis. Only

:42:18.:42:24.

football has more players. One man who knows his way around a table is

:42:24.:42:28.

Douglas Dennis. Ranked suchth in the world at the height of his

:42:28.:42:33.

career, this is a man who knows his ping from his pong.

:42:33.:42:40.

Why is table tennis so popular? It's a rhythmic sport. You get

:42:40.:42:45.

mesmerised by it, the sound. You start to sweat a bit. The heart is

:42:45.:42:49.

really pumping. So you were ranked seventh in the world - that's

:42:49.:42:59.
:42:59.:43:01.

pretty good. Not too bad. Shall we here's hoping our Olympic team fare

:43:01.:43:10.

I think Angellica did a good job. love ping-pong. Who doesn't like

:43:10.:43:13.

ping-pong? I love it. Show me a person who doesn't like ping-pong,

:43:14.:43:19.

I'll show you a person who doesn't love life. But you were telling us

:43:19.:43:22.

Susan Sarandon has a ping-pong club. She does. She has a ping-pong club

:43:22.:43:26.

in New York. There is one in Los Angeles as well, but I was in the

:43:26.:43:29.

one in New York a few weeks ago, and I played table tennis, ping-

:43:29.:43:36.

pong, with Chandler from Friends. How showbiz is that. More

:43:36.:43:41.

importantly, who won? He beat me, but I kid you not, he has a machine

:43:41.:43:49.

at home that plays table tennis with him. That's so LA. He's not

:43:49.:43:52.

busy then! Shall we subtly bridge from one sport to another? Oh, look.

:43:52.:43:57.

It's the football tactics map. Beautiful. Tell us what's going on

:43:57.:44:02.

on Sunday? On Sunday, there is the biggest pro-celebrity football

:44:02.:44:06.

match ever in the world all for Soccer Aid all for the greatest

:44:06.:44:09.

children's organisation in the world, UNICEF. All money raised

:44:09.:44:12.

goes to UNICEF to save children's lives around the world. We have a

:44:12.:44:16.

team - England versus the rest of the world. England's captain is

:44:16.:44:20.

Robbie Williams. Captain of the rest of the world is me, and here

:44:20.:44:24.

are my celebrities... Here is the rest of the world. Here is the rest

:44:24.:44:29.

of the world. We have half ex-pros, half celebrities. You have some

:44:30.:44:36.

massive names - yourself, Will Feral. I don't know what Gordon

Ramsey is doing in goals! Mike Meyers, Gerd Butler. How were these

:44:43.:44:48.

people convinced to come over and take part? Will Farrell is the

:44:48.:44:52.

biggest film star in the world. Partly because two years ago Woody

:44:52.:44:54.

Harrelson came over here. Woody Harrelson didn't have a lot of

:44:54.:44:57.

football form, I have to say, hadn't played a lot of it, hadn't

:44:57.:45:02.

seen lot of it, hadn't kicked a lot of it, yet stepped up to take a

:45:02.:45:05.

penalty. I had run out of players to take penalties. It was sudden

:45:05.:45:15.

death. I thought, right. Woody, off Even if you can barely kick a

:45:15.:45:21.

football, you can still beat Jamie Theakston in goal? Apparently so.

:45:21.:45:24.

But Woody Harrelson goes around showing everybody that on his

:45:24.:45:29.

telephone. He convinced Will Ferrell and Edward Norton to take

:45:29.:45:35.

part. Robbie Williams is apparently still sour that you won the last

:45:35.:45:40.

one? Absolutely, he is out for revenge. What are the chances of

:45:40.:45:46.

the Rest of the World winning? Apart from the celebrities, which

:45:46.:45:49.

are obviously all brilliant, we have ex professionals like Roy

:45:49.:45:57.

Keane, Jaap Stam, Edwin Van der Sar, Hernan Crespo, Freddie Lundberg, we

:45:57.:46:00.

have incredible players. I think what we lack in the celebrity area,

:46:01.:46:05.

we make up for in the professionals. Playing at your age, with your

:46:06.:46:10.

level of ability... Of Union my mid-twenties? It will be really hot

:46:11.:46:15.

on Sunday. It's going to be 90 degrees pitch-side. You've

:46:15.:46:19.

genuinely got to be careful? have. The match will take place in

:46:19.:46:26.

the evening. It will still be hot. Baking all day. My legs are

:46:26.:46:32.

creaking a little bit already. It will be a bit cooler in the evening.

:46:32.:46:37.

As you approach middle-age, having a game of football, as a kid you

:46:37.:46:42.

run for the ball time. You have to select your runs. The other day we

:46:42.:46:46.

went on to the training pitch and we had been training all week. We

:46:46.:46:50.

got out there and they have loads of footballs hanging around. You

:46:50.:46:54.

saw everybody trying to kick the ball into the goal. Roy Keane said,

:46:54.:46:57.

it doesn't matter how high up you are, or you want to do when you get

:46:57.:47:02.

onto the pitch, you just want to shoot for goal. Patrick Kielty is

:47:02.:47:06.

in goals and we are just kicking at him. You turn into an eight-year-

:47:06.:47:11.

old. How can they only have it every two years? You must be

:47:11.:47:16.

chomping at the bit for an annual competition. It takes that long to

:47:16.:47:23.

recover! This is the 4th one, and UNICEF raised �7.5 million. It's

:47:23.:47:27.

incredible. For the first time, the Government are going to match every

:47:27.:47:33.

donation. Please watch on Sunday, 6 o'clock. Donate and the Government

:47:33.:47:37.

will double your money. We want to make as much as possible. I'm never

:47:37.:47:41.

enthusiastic about programmes for the enemy, but this one is a belter.

:47:42.:47:46.

Let's look at another one of the photographs that are part of the

:47:46.:47:51.

Falklands exhibition. Let's go over here. This is a picture of Stephen

:47:51.:47:55.

Smith, also known as Smudge, returning home from the Falklands

:47:55.:47:59.

to his two daughters. This is one of my favourite photographs. We've

:47:59.:48:05.

had lots of really good ones, Smudge. Can I call you that? Give

:48:05.:48:12.

us the background. How vividly do you remember that? We flew to Brize

:48:12.:48:18.

Norton. An aircraft was pitched to come in separately. Prince Charles,

:48:19.:48:25.

for when they came down. We were unaware of what was happening. We

:48:25.:48:29.

thought we would just come back, get on at the bus. It was

:48:29.:48:35.

overwhelming. Friends, family, everybody was there. Waving flags.

:48:35.:48:41.

How relieved were you to see your girls? They are all grown up now?

:48:41.:48:48.

Totally relieved. We had no contact since we left to, throughout the

:48:48.:48:54.

campaign. As the first time I'd seen them since I left in

Another important memory from the Falklands war. HMS Coventry, 30

:50:17.:50:23.

years ago today, Joe Crowley met up with one survivor to hear his story.

:50:23.:50:29.

In the spring of 1982, HMS Coventry was returning from exercises in the

:50:29.:50:34.

Mediterranean. On board were 300 young sailors looking forward to

:50:34.:50:39.

their Easter leave back in Britain. One of them was electronic warfare

:50:39.:50:43.

intelligence officer Chris Howe. were looking forward to going back

:50:43.:50:48.

for Easter, a nice feeling, to get back to your families. On the 2nd

:50:48.:50:54.

April, things changed. Argentina invaded the Falklands. Mrs Thatcher

:50:54.:50:57.

underlined her determination to use force. We are assembling the

:50:57.:51:01.

biggest fleet that has ever sailed in peacetime. A taskforce headed

:51:02.:51:06.

for the Falklands. Would it went HMS Coventry, leaving Chris's wife

:51:06.:51:12.

at home with the boys. Very worried, very upset. We were looking forward

:51:12.:51:15.

to him coming home. All I could think was, I don't know what I

:51:15.:51:20.

would do if I lost Chris. A month later, Coventry was in the

:51:20.:51:25.

Falklands. Air raids were frequent. This is the operations room, the

:51:25.:51:30.

centre of any ship. We are on the HMS York. How similar is this to

:51:30.:51:37.

HMS Coventry? They were from quite a similar time? Very similar.

:51:37.:51:43.

would you have been? Exactly here. By 25th May, troops were landing at

:51:43.:51:48.

San Carlos. Coventry was stationed near by to provide cover. Being so

:51:48.:51:53.

close to land made radar less effective. We knew that we were an

:51:53.:51:56.

easy target. We would know the threat was coming, but it was too

:51:56.:52:00.

late to engage them with missile systems. What was the captain

:52:00.:52:05.

response? It must have seemed like a suicide mission? He was not happy,

:52:05.:52:11.

but we obey the order. We did our job. But the attack they had

:52:11.:52:17.

anticipated soon came. There is this dull thud. Everything seemed

:52:17.:52:27.
:52:27.:52:34.

A massive force just hit me in the face. On to my side, followed by a

:52:34.:52:39.

rapid heat, a fireball whooping around the operations room. After

:52:39.:52:46.

that, I remember coming to. All of the screams were fire, melting. I

:52:46.:52:50.

could hear the water lapping into the port side. I was tied down with

:52:50.:52:54.

headset wires. My arm was on fire and I thought that was when my life

:52:54.:53:00.

would end. I could see my wife and my boys. I ripped out the why and I

:53:00.:53:06.

started to make my way towards that starboard door. I came across my

:53:06.:53:11.

colleague, Sam. I'd lost most of my clothing. Very little was left on

:53:11.:53:15.

and we came to the ladder. But it was disintegrating, it was gone. He

:53:15.:53:23.

had to push me from below. I decided my life was not ending them.

:53:23.:53:28.

This is where you made your way out onto the deck? At this stage, I

:53:28.:53:33.

really realised how badly burned I was. It felt as if there were

:53:33.:53:38.

blowtorches on my back and my face. I have some pictures that were

:53:38.:53:43.

given to me some years later by the surgeon commander. 27% burns in

:53:43.:53:50.

total, the way they SST it. Just terrific, isn't it? It shows my

:53:50.:53:55.

ring, the St Christopher, that I still wear today, that survived.

:53:55.:54:03.

took just 20 minutes for Coventry to capsize. 19 of the crew perished.

:54:03.:54:07.

I was stunned at the kitchen window with a baby in my arms. I had to

:54:07.:54:11.

see the neighbours talking to a man at the door. She pointed across to

:54:11.:54:16.

our house. When he turned around, I saw that it was a vicar and he was

:54:16.:54:20.

making his way across to my house with what I thought was a Bible in

:54:20.:54:28.

his hands. I just felt my knees buckling. He came in and said, your

:54:28.:54:38.
:54:38.:54:40.

husband has serious injuries. We do When I finally got back to the UK,

:54:40.:54:44.

it was complete relief that the episode in my life was at amend. To

:54:44.:54:49.

get back and see Margaret and the boys again was fantastic. My mother

:54:49.:54:54.

said when he came home, Chris, your guardian angel was watching over

:54:54.:55:03.

you that day. She was right. was right. HMS Coventry played its

:55:03.:55:08.

part in retaking the Falklands. 30 years ago, her crew did their duty.

:55:08.:55:18.
:55:18.:55:28.

Today, they remember friends that Thank you to Chris Foy making that

:55:28.:55:33.

film. Thanks for sending your photos from the HMS Coventry

:55:33.:55:40.

reunion tonight. 120 former crew members, this is from Chris Clarke

:55:40.:55:48.

We have so many brilliant photographs that we decided to have

:55:48.:55:52.

a real public display. You can come and see this for the next week at

:55:52.:55:58.

White City. Then it moves to TV Centre. It is not on tour, I don't

:55:58.:56:04.

think. There is a journey involved. It is only 500 yards, but you can

:56:04.:56:10.

see it. We have special guests to open it. If you would like to make

:56:10.:56:15.

a speech, you are very welcome to. I declare this were done well and

:56:15.:56:25.
:56:25.:56:26.

Just time to have a look at a couple more of our favourites. With

:56:26.:56:32.

us now is Trevor, Joe and Kirsty. Trevor, this is a picture you tap

:56:32.:56:35.

when you went back to the Falklands? I went back with an

:56:35.:56:40.

organised trip. It was a contrast to what happened in 1982, when I

:56:40.:56:48.

served on the Exeter. A great picture, thank you very much. Who

:56:48.:56:55.

do you have? Hello! You are very welcome, but we just need to be

:56:55.:57:01.

able to see this photograph. Good evening, you featured in his

:57:01.:57:05.

photograph? We thought we would bring you over here. Tell us about

Commander. We are in San Carlos and we are just getting some Met Office

charts through. That was a couple of days after that when we started

:57:29.:57:33.

getting attacked by Argentinian aircraft. All of the smiles had

gone. The calm before the storm? Thank you so much. We will send the

photographs back once the exhibition is over. Let's say

goodbye to Michael, Mandy. Details of how to see the photographs for

Chris and Alex are joined by the actor Michael Sheen and broadcaster Kirsty Young, who'll be opening our first ever viewer photography exhibition. We also meet the man who fell 2400ft and lived to tell the tale, track down an escaped lemur and learn the secrets of great flambé food.
