12 Halal, and welcome to The One Show. We are outside because this
is our very first roadshow. We are here with the lovely people of
Sheffield. They are real troupers. They've been incredible. It's been
tipping it down at times today but the sun has come out for us. We've
turned this Park into a gigantic festival, to give some of the
viewers to get hands-on with the things we see in the studio every
night. It's been leading up to tonight's very special programme.
Yes. Angellica is attempting mass participation art. Or will it be
good enough to hang in a real gallery? It will be revealed later.
Christine's volunteer gardeners are helping to spread flower-power all
across this lovely city. I'll be over shortly to give you a hand.
For Carrie Grant has had one day to create a 100 strong choir good
enough to sing live on BBC One later on. The a finished rehearsing
before we came on air and it sounded pretty good. We've got
history from Gyles science from Marty and this being The One Show,
we brought along a very special guest. He is the curly-haired
comedy cutie from QI. Please give a Have raised it down. We didn't
bring our sulfur, but this will do. It's an incredible turnout, the sun
has come out. I brought it with me. You have brought your wellies,
which was a good move. Yes, it is a swamp around us. It's fine. Have
you any connections with Sheffield? I did play in Sheffield in 1999. I
once did a gig in Sheffield and next door there was wrestling
happening. My favourite memory of Yorkshire is with an old girlfriend
of mine at Pontefract racecourse, but we probably shouldn't go there!
This being no ordinary show, we will get to rub in with all sorts
of stuff. You've done a wonderful job with the straw around the
outside. Considering we are in the middle of a field full of lovely
tents, we thought it would be nice if you could give us your pictures
of your camping experience over the summer. It has been a bit of a
mixed bag with the weather. Any good camping memories? I camp when
I was working at the Farnborough Air Show. I got woken up every
morning by jets coming into land for the show. That is my camping
memory, it was quite traumatic. that the end of your camping
experience? After that I never come again, but I saw the Red Arrows
every day. Before we show you what happens when The One Show comes to
town, Anita, you are going to kick things off with a very memorable
story. Have you have got in touch with the show to see if we could
help track down any of her mother's long-lost relatives. We had no idea
1931, the country was in the grip of the Great Depression. Jobs were
scarce and people were going hungry. This building in Grimsby is now a
hospital, but back in the 30s it used to be a workhouse and housed
some of the poorest people in society. It was home to a woman
named Evelyn and the Branson, who gave birth right here to a little
girl she named Joyce. This is my birth certificate. I was born on
21st May, 1931 in Grimsby. It was the workhouse. Yes. It also tells
you your mother's name. Yes, even Branson. Why would your birth
mother have been here? Because it would be the only place in Grimsby
that would take on an unmarried mother. Joyce Gibbs is now 81 years
old, but it was only in her 30s that she saw her birth certificate
for the first time and discovered she was adopted. Prior to this she
had no idea. Did it come as a shock to you? It did. Do you feel angry
at your mum or giving you up? don't think I do really because
probably I wouldn't have been as well off as I have been forced to
maybe life would have been harder for us both. I often wonder where
she went. Did she stay in Grimsby, did she see me growing up? I wonder
if she has had any other children. You don't know, do you? Joyce has
asked us to help us find out more about her family, so I am off to
find out from professional people find it. I enlisted to help to
search for relatives. Anybody in the public can do what I do, using
records that are available online. But I often have to go to libraries
and different record offices throughout the country. We know
that Joyce was adopted, so how does that change things? It does make
things more complicated. You can go to an adoption Support Agency for
help. But because joys already had her original birth certificate,
that gave us the mother's name. That is where I start. The first
step was to look at entries in the birth index. That is the record of
everyone born in the UK. I found one Fort Evelyn Branson. There is
only one. It's for 1906. She used this information to track down her
birth certificate and eventually found her on the 1911 census.
she is. Aged five. Living at home with her mother. It is perfect
information, and their brothers and sisters, too. Next up was an
ancestry website, where it was found that someone has posted
information about Evelyn's Barber, Joyce's grandfather, as part of a
family tree. Papped contacted the woman online. Is she a living blood
relative? The reply came back saying that Joyce's mother was also
her grandmother. That means that this lady is a niece to Joyce. That
is incredible. What is even more amazing is that the contact has an
anti- June, who is still alive. She would be Joyce's sister. Incredibly,
she lives in Grimsby. It is time to tell Joyce what we found out and
show her for the first time a precious photo of her mum that her
niece has given us. Oh, that's lovely. I think it's wonderful that
I know I've got a photograph of her after all this time. She looks very
happy, doesn't she? Of course, we've got even more to tell her. We
know that she went on to have four other children. All of them died
apart from one. Right. Her name is June. She was born two years after
you. She lives writing in Grimsby. Amazing, isn't it? It is entirely
up to you but if you'd like, we could go to June, tell her about
you and then arrange a meeting between the two of you. If she
wants to. If she wants to and if you want to. Yeah. Can I think
about that? Of course you can. would like to think about it.
your time. It is a wonderful thing to know. I've got a sister. And a
picture of your mum. It's a lovely What a story! It's one thing going
out and making films for the show, but delivering life change in use.
It had such as huge impact on Joyce's life. It was incredible to
break this news to her and tell her that we'd found a photograph of her
mum. That was such as huge thing. Finally she was able to piece
together a little more about who she is and her life. I obviously
knew that she had a sister, so why have to hold that back. Then to
tell her that she had his sister. I won't tell you what happens. That
is coming up in a little while. It We can't wait to see part two. All
day, members of different cake clubs and the WI have been bringing
along their lovely creations do our along their lovely creations do our
best show tent, to enter our cake competition. All of these look
marvellous. The criteria was that the cakes had to have something to
do with Sheffield, whether it is a person, and iconic landmark may be.
Allen, you were a chef in the sitcom Whites, would you? I was.
you are qualified to judge this competition. There is no one better.
The what do you look for in a good cake, Alan? Chocolate, usually.
in that case, I can see the winner from here. I've already picked it.
Mind you, there might be chocolate in any of them. We have Vanessa
here. What was your inspiration? have a crockery cafe. And as a
cyclist, every good cycle ride ends at a cafe. It's a fruit cake.
really love these teacups. Alan gasp when he saw this one. The yes,
this is based on the fact that Sheffield is the greenest city in
Europe. So many trees surround Sheffield, so that's why I decided
to do that one. And we have our youngest Baker of the date. That
looks fantastic. It inspired me because I like football and
Sheffield United. That's a good reason. Do you belong to the
chocolate one? This one. Beautiful again. You belong to the chocolate
one. Yes. What does the chocolate ring mean? It's inspired by an old
Sheffield landmark about four decades ago. It's been knocked down
now but I thought it would be a good, easy cake to make. And you've
got some lavender on yours. Yes. Mine is inspired by the Peak
District. It uses local honey and lavender. It is inspired by the
greenery of Sheffield. according to the Great British
Bake-Off last night, lavender works well on cakes. I'm very impressed
by the trees and intricate decoration, but it is Sheffield and
you can't say no to the blades. Look at this wonderful cake. I
picked this one as the winner. Congratulations to our youngest
I would have gone for the Peak District one. The cake bakers of
Sheffield have really done their thing. Later, will be finding out
how our new choir are shaping up. This was them earlier on. They are
sounding very good. Despite the rain, and we did have a massive
deluge at about 1pm, people have been coming out in their droves. We
have literally thousands of viewers. With over 2 million trees and 80
public parks, Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in Europe. But
there's no excuse to stopping Look at that. Local Sheffield. Some
crops will do well, others will fail. It's just the nature of the
season. Sheffield has one of the biggest professional art scenes in
the country. Today, this happy bunch of amateurs are going to
recreate a piece for one of the city's famous sons. It is my first
time at art work. The last time I was about five years old with a
paint brush and a paint pot. I've never painted before. Our favourite
it has been the mud and the rain! My favourite thing has been
decorating the cup cakes, but I do like the bikes as well. With local
success stories such as Michael Vaughan and Jess Ennis, Sheffield
has a fine sporting pedigree. But for those only just about ready to
get off the couch, today has been a I thought it would be a bit of a
laugh, my husband has had a go at all the different strength tests
and flexibility tests because he's rubbish at things like that.
incentive to get on and do a bit more fitness. Amazing things are
happening in the history zone. We began back with the Iron Age tribes
here. Come right up to date and we've got to the music of Sheffield
in recent years. Tony Christie, he came from Sheffield, he gave us
As you could see, there's been loads to do in Sheffield. Aland and
I have raced around the fields. -- Alan. Angellica, you've been in
charge of a huge masterpiece we are about to reveal. I will reveal it.
The wonderful people of Sheffield have been recreating a masterpiece.
Joseph MacIntyre was a Sheffield lad and it has been cut into 96
canvas squares. I think we should reveal it. Are you ready? I'm ready.
Absolutely fantastic. You can see this painting on display for a
month at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield. Go along there to see it.
What do you think? It is pretty good! Pretty good? It is brilliant.
Some of the squares could do with another go. But generally amazing.
Her the only dodgy thing was your unveiling of the painting. We will
go to mat and Christine for some gardening. Indeed. We have got a
massive screen here and it looks amazing, that art work. There are
lot of gardening people here. Christine is in charge. Absolutely.
I in supervising five local groups that up planting and they will take
them home and look after them. We have got the scouts and the
Brownies. Let's have a quick word. Will you get some kind of
environmental badge for this? You don't know? What is your favourite
plant? Probably this one. It will look nice in the autumn. That is
the idea. For a will look beautiful all year round. A spectacular plant.
Colour in the autumn. Pass the winter progresses, these dark,
plants will look better. -- dark coloured plants. Every single one
of these will look brilliant through the winter. Let's have a
little wonder. You're doing very well, girls. Let's nip down here
from the local squash club. We have a world champion here. Nick Matthew.
You must be good at squashing them down! I'm better at squash...
you arrange these? For five helped them arrange them and now they are
planting them so they will look good. If you have never planted
before, you can lose the plot very quickly. As a planting Guide,...
Have you done a lot of planting before? No. You have to look after
this plant. No. A break it to you gently! We will go all the way down
to the very bottom, to the Children's Hospital charity. Is
that where this is going to go? This is going to go in Weston Park,
just in front of the Children's Hospital. You all work in the
hospital. We do, I'm a doctor at the Children's Hospital. Her I'm an
Executive PA. I'm a matron. Do you do a lot of gardening? Not at the
hospital, I do have a garden. you all promised to look after
these? Yes. We will be back later to see how they look. While this
lot have been flowering the city, one artist is planning a sculpture
that will tower over it. Alex Riley on a big man coming to town.
Nothing said -- says you're approaching Sheffield like the
cooling towers. But now they've gone, the area is said to be
transformed by a new landmark. The huge piece of public art entitled
Nice to meet you. I was expecting it to be bigger. This is only a
model, about 30 centimetres. big will it be when it is on the
site? He is sitting down, altogether it is about 30 metres
tall. That is pretty high. What was the inspiration? Steel in Sheffield
and Rotherham has such a reputation across the world. I thought
something like this might be a good piece to represent people who
worked in those industries. It is heavy! As both an art lover and a
keen motorist, I'm excited about how the man of Steel will interact
spatially with the M1 and the A361. You'll be able to view the art work
at 70 mph on two different levels. That is what I call an art gallery!
Anthony Gormley's the Angel of the North said the President for
roadside viewing in 1998. Since then, communities across the UK
have been falling over themselves to create something equally huge
and deeply meaningful. Rise, symbolising a new chapter in
Belfast's history, was constructed in 2011. Damien Hirst plans to
build Verity, a bronze clad pregnant girl wielding scale spinel

settled for appear that goes up and not so long. That big horse in Kent
is all off. When dream was conditioned -- commissioned on the
M62 near St Helens, part of the proposal considered whether it
would increase the number of road accidents. A reported 35 million
vehicles pass by here every year. The main question about public art
projects like this is whether they truly enriched our lives. How have
the people of St Helens embrace this idea? A mixed reaction! We've
had 64,000 visitors in one year from all over the world. Russia,
China, America, New Zealand, Australia. They've come here. We
would never have had that before. What we are hoping for, it will do
for St Helens South what Angel of the North has done for Gateshead.
It seems the more widespread roadside art becomes, the more
challenging it is to catch the eye and interest of its mobile audience.
It is going to be great! Are you a fan of La Joe Hart? I love the
Angel of the North. It could have gone either way. But everybody in
the north-east embraced it straight away and ditties usually loved.

back on the road. You have a tour coming up. It is called Life is
Pain. The name of my show! Is it ironic as might I thought it was a
good idea for a title and I saw that boaster and I thought this was
a talk about suicide followed by an actual suicide. It is tongue-in-
cheek. Life is Pain, of course, but it is also full of silly nonsense
as well. I'm sure people will be shouting, why have they been 13
years? Sheer laziness. I last did stand-up comedy in the 1990s and a
slightly fell out of love with the motorways. Then I did some TV and
then I met my wife and had children. For years have gone by and last
year we went to Australia and did QI live in Australia in theatres.
That gave us a shot in the arm for QI as well. I also did a stand-up
tour and I just loved it. I thought I would do that when I got home.
You showcased some of the new staff in Edinburgh recently. How did that
go down? For I loved it. I don't go in for a lot of cultural references.
I didn't have to change anything in Australia. It is about family life
and sex toys. A right! After 13 Sorry. 13 years... By was very
nervous. A few weeks ago, I did a charity night for the teenage
Cancer Trust at the Albert Hall and Jason was introducing and I had to
do a spot there. Jimmy Carr was on before me letting off these huge
comedic hand grenades. I thought, what am I doing? And once I was
back on with the microphone, it felt great. I felt like I was back
doing what I do. He said the best thing about stand-up is you don't
have a boss, you can say what you like. You can't get cancelled after
one series! Brilliant. Be it is up to you. You've wanted to do it
since you were very little. Is it right that you write a sitcom at
11? That is not right. I wrote quite an amusing novel which took
up 21 pages of my exercise book when I was about eight. Brilliant.
They ask us to write a story and one page was considered a good
effort. I was a bit of a freak. I've always liked stories. Moving
away from comedy for a second. What? Why? We have to speak about

in Sheffield. He was a steelworker. We asked him to share some of his
memories about working with a metal Steele. From skyscrapers to cutlery,

become permanently welded together in a story that began hundreds of
years ago. References to knives from Sheffield date back to the
14th century, with its combination of coal, iron ore and five rivers,
it was an ideal site for steel production. 200 years ago, water
wells like this were used to harness the power of Sheffield
rivers. And drive rhinestones like this. It meant they could mass-
produce steel blades and grind them Cover generations, cutting edge
production techniques were developed here. My grandad was a
steelworker for over 50 years. Hello! Since I was small, he's told
me about life at the works. You've lived in and around Sheffield or
your life. How has the city changed since you were lit young? In the
1940s until the 1960s, you wouldn't have seen across this barely

Now better known as stainless steel. My grandad worked on the very same

specialised in metal for submarines, ships and aeroplanes. I started
work on April 1st, 1946. It was a completely alien land. The noise,
the dirt, you could taste the sulphur in the atmosphere. You must
have had loads of good memories, but were they are bad memories as
well? There were bad memories and they were in the 1970s and 1980s.
The steel industry was being decimated, all of us were in danger
of losing our jobs. A so by the 1970s and 1980s, the rust had set

I've done some crazy things to experience what some animals can do.
Running as fast as a head, or catching fish Lakhan Ospreys. But
there are some animals that can stand a huge pall of gravity, known
as G force. G-forces what you feel on a roller coaster when you are
accelerating rapidly, slowing down dramatically or pulling out of that
dive. It is the extra force of gravity pulling on your insides.
For some animals that force is a way of life, big time. The
peregrine falcon is the fastest animal on the planet, reaching
around 200 mph. But when it pours out of its dive, it can experience
as much as 25 G-force. We can briefly experience between

100 times its own length. When it leaves it puts its body through 400

find it difficult to reach double figures without losing
consciousness. So why can't we do the same, and what happens to us
when we try? This fighter pilot testing facility in Hampshire has
Britain's only human centrifuge machine. It has been used for
research in both aviation and space travel for the last 60 years. Why
are human so poor at coping with extreme G-force? The main problem
is the size of us in comparison to a lot of smaller creatures. What
happens is as the gravity increases, then everything in our body begins
to wait a lot more than usual. That includes the blood that circulates
around the body. The heart has great difficulty getting bad blood

but Britain's front gardens can confirm - yes, it is. Here in
Halifax, the summer shrubs, hydrangeas and roses are in bloom
everywhere. There's no place for shrinking violets! The perennials
of bold and brash, a real eye- popping colour. Hot, sizzling
cacophony of flaming red. They remind me of the infernal fires of
hell! Driving around, it's not long before I find something that really
stands out. A hydrangea, and look at the buddleia. Look at that! What

Growing at 1000 ft high, free- standing, exposed to the elements.
Look at it! We get Red 4 winds round this neck of the woods as
well. And you wouldn't know looking at that. But you've obviously got
green fingers to get back to flower like that. Magic! After a short
summer shower, a whopping fuchsia listens and shines, adding a splash
of glorious colour to the roadside. Fantastic cascades of red and blue,

What do you do to make it look so good? It gets a lot of manure and
we tried to prune back what is behind it so it will get light from
all sides. That is exactly... If a plant is happy, leave it alone.
Glorious. Look at that beautiful cloud of flowers. You have
positioned it very well because it is a sun lover. Yes. The sunlight
coming through it, lighting the leaves from behind so you get a lot
of different colours. Like light going through a stained-glass
window. You can see why it is called a smoke plant because it
looks hazy. Do people admire it as they come by? Occasionally we
notice people walking past and stopping. They have a little look.
