Welcome to Friday's One Show with Alex Jones and Chris Evans on what
is a huge weekend for Dr Who fans. Behind every Doctor there is a
ravishing intelligent assistant. Look who it is, it is Karen Gillan.
On the eve of her last ever series. You leave in this series, Dr Who
fans will be gutted. I hope so. was your last day on set? That was
seer even actually. Every was feeling it and the last scene, the
three of us walking into the tar disand we were all in the darkness
and we all hugged and it was a really weird moment and then I
cried a lot. How long did you cry for? I mean, probably two weeks
actually. That is a lot. We will talk more about Dr Who later and we
have some clips. Exclusive clips of the first episode of Dr Whom. The
daleks are on tomorrow. Can you at home make your own Dalek in the
next ten minute. You have one here, you can have a look at this one in
case you don't know what it looks like. It doesn't have to be that
good, cardboard will do. Children, if you want to be a Dalek, I am
thinking saucepan on your head, can you make it happen in the next ten
minutes. Send your pictures to the usual address and we will show some
later. Coming up, some Scottish neighbours
of Karen's are interested in seeing her tonight, like this unbelievably
cute little fellow. You will also see more of this, what happened
when we took the most infamous voice of Dr Who for the last 50
years to meet the people of Slough. (Voice of the Daleks)
Children cried in Tesco. Yesterday we spoke to Tanni Grey Thompson
about the situation regarding Victoria Arlem, the controversy of
whether or not she is impaired enough to qualify as a Paralympian.
The whole issue of classification needs some urgent clarification. We
got Cherry Healey on the case. For these young members of an Essex
all ability swimming club, the Paralympic Games is a chance to
cheer on their heroes and perhaps dream of one day going for gold
themselves. What is surprise something that despite their
seemingly different physical impairments, some could compete in
the same race. Ready, set go! How do you ensure a level playing
field for Paralympians going for gold in the water, on the track, or
on the court? It is all down to classification.
There are even more athletes taking part in year than in Beijing in
2008. And all 4km 200 have gone through rigorous assessments to
decide who they can compete against fairly. Classification groups
athletes together in terms of their medical and functional abilities,
and simply they are just put into one group where they know that each
of those athletes, even if they have slightly different
disabilities, they have the same styles of function, so they can
compete on a level playing field. The system varies in each sport but
the principal remains the same. Most sports use a numerical scale.
Sprinter Oscar kiss torius is classified as a T 44. T stands for
track. The first number refers to the category. In Oscar's case it's
4. The second 4 represents the level of that impairment. So he
would never race against, say, a T 11, a visually impaired athlete, or
a T 41, with a more severe impairment. If there is lots of
different types of classification, surely, each sport has to be done
over and over. Yes. You will have wheelchair racers doing 100m final,
leg amp tees doing 100m final and then you will have a group of
athletes doing the 100m final together. There's quite a few 100m
finals, but that duplicates the fun and excitement.
It all sounds sensible, but in some team sports competitors with very
different levels of disability can compete on the same team. I have
come to join the Harlow hurricanes wheelchair basketball team to find
out more. The classification is based on your
ability in a chair. So my care is not as good as most people, due to
my disability. Each player is given a points value, according to their
impairment. From one which signifies the most severe
impairment, up to 4.5. But a team of five players cannot exceed 14
points on court at any one time. You have to work the stuff out
before and make sure if you are playing, you have to be able to
know if you take that player off and put someone else on, it is not
going to go over the points. Four main areas are assessed in
wheelchair basketball classification. Coach Richard is an
expert. What kind of things do you actually do when you are getting
your classification? They check out your physical ability, core
strength and grip, the physios come and watch you play basketball and
on the track it is the same thing. Up to and during the Games,
competitors are continually assessed to ensure they are
classified correctly and controversies do occur when some
athletes are reclassified, even up to the day of competition. How can
you be sure the athletes aren't cheating the system?. Throughout
the years, as Paralympic sport has progressed, the testing that is
involved has become so much more sophisticated now. You have medical
opinions. You have physicalological technical opinions from really
specialised medical experts. We are confident now it is better than
ever and very hard to cheat with the system. To us, the
classification process can seem complicated but to the athletes it
is a long-established process that allows them to concentrate on doing
what they do best. Peter White joins us. We have been watching the
Paralympic five aside today where blind players play partially
sighted players with sighted goalkeepers. You have experience of
playing this game and it looks very dangerous to us. It is very
dangerous. They must be very skilled? You usual your hearing
quite a lot. I used to play and the greatest skill I had, I had a low
centre of gravity, so I could charge into people and survive.
These guys are good and the Team GB team drew with Spain today and that
is a really good result. What do you have to do to get sent off in
the game because it looks violent from the off? All the usual things,
kicking, tripping, but the trouble is it is easier as a blind person
to claim you tricked somebody accidentally. Two days into the
Paralympics, how is it going for you? Quite well. We have 18 medals
at the moment. I think we are third, although it changes every moment.
If you remember, everyone got very worried in the Olympics because GB
seemed to start slowly. There have been one or two results that
haven't gone the way we wanted, but the GB is very strong and we are
predicting, they are hoping for over 100 medals. We are certainly
aiming for second. Lots of people, since the Olympics, have said that
maybe we should combine the Paralympics with the Olympics. What
is your thoughts on this? It's a nice romantic idea. I do wonder,
and I have talked to a lot of Paralympians about this about how
practical it is. You have to remember the Olympics is the
largest international sports events and the Paralympics is the second
largest. They are both huge. They have already got a problem of how
do they fit everything in. My worry would be that there is a danger
that the Paralympians would be swamped. If you have Usain Bolt
competing and you've got a goal ball match going on, who are the
cameras going to focus on. Do we really want a six hour opening
ceremony?! Or longer even. As a blind man, how do you get to enjoy
the Paralympics, is it radio, radio? Not always. I love radio and
I took radio, I went to the Olympics, went to three or four
evenings, but some sports for blind people are enjoyed more on
television. Sounds weird I know. But sometimes people can talk too
much on the radio. What are you trying to say, Peter. Nothing
personal Chris. That is why I have the records, so I don't talk quite
as much. Tennis, I can enjoy it better because I can hear the ball.
On the radio you can't hear that. If you listen to it on television,
once you figured out who is serving, you can follow the game quite well.
You can tell the difference between a lob and a smash. Thank you.
If the one show did Dr Who, I know The morning commute to work is
pretty boring. I am going to have a go at liveening things up a bit.
This is Nick, my secret weapon. Here is your script. What I am
thinking is something like from series 7, episode one, where you go
arghhhh. I have something in mind. A train now approaching platform 1
is the 2164 AD First Great Western service. Attention. Attention. We
are now robotising your brain. case you hadn't realised nick is
the voice of the Daleks. This train is exterminate here. Calling at...
Exterminate them immediately. a Dalek. Exterminate. Take me to
your leader or I will exterminate. What we should do now is roll it
out across the whole of Slough. hub of the Dalek empire. Eye
tension. Human beings, in the back to school section, attention, Dr
Who fan in the grey hooded top. Turn round and come back to the
fruit and veg section. I am a Dalek. Time to end on a high.
# Dr Who, who are you? I always thought the Dalek was put
through some voice sin theseiser Nicholas takes it through to the
read tlus for the episodes as well. He is sitting at a table doing it.
Some of those impressions were dodgy but we hear you are very good.
I have done this once before. have some lines you might like to
say in Dalek tones. I want two portion of chips and mushy peace
now. Exterminate exterminate. like the mushy peace. I would like
two portions of chips and mushy peas please.
Why have we got a blue Dalek? Edon't know. They come in all the
primary colours. You can buy them right now, special price, Friday
night price on the One Show. Shall we have a look at the all new Dr
Who. How much trouble are we in? Out of
ten? 11. You know when you turn up on the
first day of being Dr Who's assistant, 2010 for you, is it the
kind of job when on the first day you have to decide then when your
last day is going to be? No, it was left open actually. Then it was
well into the shooting that we came up with the decision to leave after
these five episodes. Me and Stephen Stephen Moffat. Putting my feelings
and emotions about it, the most important thing to me is the show
and the character. I just wanted her to leave at the right time and
to have maximum impact and not outstay my welcome. Arthur and I
have been the longest running companions now. It feels right.
your marriage was in bits? The new assistant is Jenna Louise Coleman,
how will you feel seeing her on- screen? I think, I have seen
pictures of her working with Matt and I thought it might be strange
because you have a weird sense of ownership over it, but I am looking
forward to seeing him interact with a new person. I get to watch it and
not know what is going to happen. How do you break the news to Matt
and your mum, who is a huge fan? She is still saying I don't want
you to you Karen. She's had two years. Who tells Matt? Actually the
producers told him and then he calls me and and they were all like
it's actually happening, weirdly excited and scared. Shall we have
another clip? Where are we? Not just any
spaceship. The parliament of the Daleks. Make them remember you.
Come on then. You've got me. What are you waiting for? At long last,
Brilliant. But it's not Christmas, that's not the Christmas episode.
Are you on the Christmas episode? No. Do you get killed off?. I can't
tell you that. It's really good. You have done another film in the
meantime and you are going to Hollywood. I am going to Alabama,
will be fun because I have never been to the keep shoot and I am
going to shoot a film about a brother and sister who embark on a
mission to prove that the death of their parents was caused by a
supernatural force. Have you had your leaving do yet? Yes. What was
it like? Yes, Arthur's favourite band played and we ended up in John
Barrowman's flat. Did everyone sign a card? Yes, everyone signed it.
had no idea that Torchwood is an element of Dr Who. Yes. According
to our director, who says he's not a Dr Who geek. Dr Who is on BBC One
tomorrow night at 7.20. This evening we tease you with one of
the cutest creatures we have seen on the one show, not Alex or Karen.
Look away now mere cats, there's a new cuty in town.
I have come to Scotland to meet a lucky one show show couple who said
they had a family of pine martens living in their garden. The chance
to see such a rare animal and its babies, I couldn't resist. Lorna
left her family and friends in Essex to move to this idyllic spot
in Scotland. She has discovered a special recipe that entices these
rare guests into her garden. How did you discover you had pine
martens here?. By accident really, by putting out the mixture for the
red squirrels and then one evening an animal I thought was a ferret
appeared and they just came and they have been coming for two years.
It's not just the pine martens in the garden which are so exciting.
Lorna's husband has reason to believe a family have set up home
in the barn next door. The dog was barking madly, soy thought
something is behind here, I unscrewed the door, pulled out and
two pine martens up the end there and the little mum looking round
the corner at me, saying what's he doing. That is so incredible. We
can't see them, it is so tantalising. I am going to ask the
sound recorder to come in. (Scratching noises). We have heard
them behind the door. What I want to do is get a glimpse of the
babies. We will leave camera tracks to
capture the action and check on them later.
As dusk begins to fall, I join Lorna in her lounge to see if her
special recipe has done the trick. Come on my little pine martens,
What a beautiful animal. Just when I thought things couldn't get any
better. Not just one, but three pine martens. These opportunists
are taking advantage of the free food on offer but in the forest
beyond the house they are feeding on small mammals, insects, nuts and
berries. Forlorn that, these pine martens
hold a much deeper connection. is about how I feel about them and
how they give me pleasure, because I left my grandchildren behind.
They have replaced them. It is very emotional to me to see them.
can't quite believe the views of pine martens I have had this
evening, but there is one question left unanswered. Have our cameras
captured any footage of the babies in Robert's work shop. The moment
You were right, that they were coming in and out of that whole.
Close examination of our footage revealed there was a mum and three
babies living in there. One of them seems to be a little
more inquistive than its siblings. With more individuals feeding in
her garden, it is astonishing the abundance of pine martens here at
Lorna and Robert's farm. Let's not forget that they are one
of Britain's rarest mammals and I have seen no less than seven of
them in the last 24 hours. What a treat to have in your back garden.
How cute are they. They are 70 miles from your house. That's
amazing. I have never seen one before, but I would like to be one.
You almost are. You are the same kind of shape. Yes. Tall and skinny
and cute. When I heard we had a film about birds. They sound like
another bird. These cute things come on and they won me over. You
don't see these very often. This is a Tom Ilkston Dalek. 23-years-old,
cute in his own way! This is an Isabel Dalek. Very good. This is
Tom, he's 5, doing his best impression. It is very basic but he
had a go. Also the key thing about that is that his photograph arrived
before our printer broke down. They are the only three we've got. The
one show printer has broken down. It's all the hot weather. Even as
we speak our Paralympians are going for gold and among them a very
special human being, a soldier who was condemned to a body bag having
been declared dead. He's definitely not dead any more. Cheering him on
tonight will be the heroine behind the hero.
I met Derek at church, we fell in love and we got married. He had
always wanted to be in the military and listed in the year 2000 as an
infantry soldier. He was injured in 2007 in Afghanistan. He went out on
a morning patrol and he was Manning the machine gun on a jeep. They
reversed into a land mine that was concealed. It exploded and with it,
it took his legs right away. One came off immediately and the other
was left dangling. He was thrown 30 metres away from the explosion,
landed on rocks and he broke his spine and he had burns along his
left side. They amputated his leg that was left dangling. It was
devastating. In the hospital he was fighting for his life. I was by his
bedside and he was in a state of confusion. He asked me to take off
his shoes because he felt his foot were itchy. He kept insisting, so I
just had to take a picture of him to let him know what he looked like.
When I gave him the camera to show him what he looked like, he was
quiet for five minutes, and then after a long silence he looked at
the picture and he said, come closer to me and I moved closer to
him and he said let's just thank God I am alive. And let's move on
from here. He was taken to the medical rehabilitation centre. He
was determined to get on his feet. A month later he was walking on his
prosthetic legs. A year later he really wanted to get himself
involved in sport. He was told to just concentrate on the one, which
is discus and that is the event he will be participating in at the
Paralympics. Every moment for me has been proud, from that injury,
from that adversity, what we thought was a setback, it was a set
up for bigger and greater things. I am just thankful. Come on now and
the very best of luck to Derek who is about to compete as we speak.
Well done to all the Paralympians. All the names will be on our medals
and more added over the weekend. If you didn't believe our printer
broke down today for our call in, that is the moment our printer did
