12 Halal, and welcome to The One Show. We are outside because this

:00:23.:00:28.

is our very first roadshow. We are here with the lovely people of

:00:28.:00:37.

Sheffield. They are real troupers. They've been incredible. It's been

:00:37.:00:42.

tipping it down at times today but the sun has come out for us. We've

:00:42.:00:45.

turned this Park into a gigantic festival, to give some of the

:00:45.:00:48.

viewers to get hands-on with the things we see in the studio every

:00:48.:00:52.

night. It's been leading up to tonight's very special programme.

:00:52.:00:59.

Yes. Angellica is attempting mass participation art. Or will it be

:00:59.:01:05.

good enough to hang in a real gallery? It will be revealed later.

:01:06.:01:08.

Christine's volunteer gardeners are helping to spread flower-power all

:01:08.:01:13.

across this lovely city. I'll be over shortly to give you a hand.

:01:13.:01:18.

For Carrie Grant has had one day to create a 100 strong choir good

:01:18.:01:22.

enough to sing live on BBC One later on. The a finished rehearsing

:01:22.:01:26.

before we came on air and it sounded pretty good. We've got

:01:26.:01:31.

history from Gyles science from Marty and this being The One Show,

:01:31.:01:36.

we brought along a very special guest. He is the curly-haired

:01:36.:01:46.
:01:46.:01:52.

comedy cutie from QI. Please give a Have raised it down. We didn't

:01:52.:01:57.

bring our sulfur, but this will do. It's an incredible turnout, the sun

:01:57.:02:02.

has come out. I brought it with me. You have brought your wellies,

:02:02.:02:08.

which was a good move. Yes, it is a swamp around us. It's fine. Have

:02:08.:02:14.

you any connections with Sheffield? I did play in Sheffield in 1999. I

:02:14.:02:19.

once did a gig in Sheffield and next door there was wrestling

:02:19.:02:22.

happening. My favourite memory of Yorkshire is with an old girlfriend

:02:22.:02:28.

of mine at Pontefract racecourse, but we probably shouldn't go there!

:02:28.:02:33.

This being no ordinary show, we will get to rub in with all sorts

:02:33.:02:37.

of stuff. You've done a wonderful job with the straw around the

:02:37.:02:42.

outside. Considering we are in the middle of a field full of lovely

:02:42.:02:46.

tents, we thought it would be nice if you could give us your pictures

:02:46.:02:49.

of your camping experience over the summer. It has been a bit of a

:02:49.:02:54.

mixed bag with the weather. Any good camping memories? I camp when

:02:54.:02:59.

I was working at the Farnborough Air Show. I got woken up every

:02:59.:03:02.

morning by jets coming into land for the show. That is my camping

:03:02.:03:09.

memory, it was quite traumatic. that the end of your camping

:03:09.:03:13.

experience? After that I never come again, but I saw the Red Arrows

:03:13.:03:18.

every day. Before we show you what happens when The One Show comes to

:03:18.:03:21.

town, Anita, you are going to kick things off with a very memorable

:03:21.:03:26.

story. Have you have got in touch with the show to see if we could

:03:26.:03:30.

help track down any of her mother's long-lost relatives. We had no idea

:03:30.:03:40.
:03:40.:03:40.

1931, the country was in the grip of the Great Depression. Jobs were

:03:41.:03:47.

scarce and people were going hungry. This building in Grimsby is now a

:03:47.:03:51.

hospital, but back in the 30s it used to be a workhouse and housed

:03:51.:03:56.

some of the poorest people in society. It was home to a woman

:03:56.:04:00.

named Evelyn and the Branson, who gave birth right here to a little

:04:00.:04:09.

girl she named Joyce. This is my birth certificate. I was born on

:04:09.:04:17.

21st May, 1931 in Grimsby. It was the workhouse. Yes. It also tells

:04:17.:04:24.

you your mother's name. Yes, even Branson. Why would your birth

:04:24.:04:28.

mother have been here? Because it would be the only place in Grimsby

:04:28.:04:34.

that would take on an unmarried mother. Joyce Gibbs is now 81 years

:04:34.:04:37.

old, but it was only in her 30s that she saw her birth certificate

:04:37.:04:41.

for the first time and discovered she was adopted. Prior to this she

:04:41.:04:48.

had no idea. Did it come as a shock to you? It did. Do you feel angry

:04:48.:04:53.

at your mum or giving you up? don't think I do really because

:04:53.:04:57.

probably I wouldn't have been as well off as I have been forced to

:04:57.:05:00.

maybe life would have been harder for us both. I often wonder where

:05:00.:05:05.

she went. Did she stay in Grimsby, did she see me growing up? I wonder

:05:05.:05:10.

if she has had any other children. You don't know, do you? Joyce has

:05:10.:05:14.

asked us to help us find out more about her family, so I am off to

:05:14.:05:20.

find out from professional people find it. I enlisted to help to

:05:20.:05:25.

search for relatives. Anybody in the public can do what I do, using

:05:26.:05:29.

records that are available online. But I often have to go to libraries

:05:29.:05:32.

and different record offices throughout the country. We know

:05:32.:05:37.

that Joyce was adopted, so how does that change things? It does make

:05:37.:05:40.

things more complicated. You can go to an adoption Support Agency for

:05:40.:05:44.

help. But because joys already had her original birth certificate,

:05:44.:05:50.

that gave us the mother's name. That is where I start. The first

:05:50.:05:54.

step was to look at entries in the birth index. That is the record of

:05:54.:06:03.

everyone born in the UK. I found one Fort Evelyn Branson. There is

:06:03.:06:09.

only one. It's for 1906. She used this information to track down her

:06:09.:06:14.

birth certificate and eventually found her on the 1911 census.

:06:14.:06:20.

she is. Aged five. Living at home with her mother. It is perfect

:06:20.:06:25.

information, and their brothers and sisters, too. Next up was an

:06:25.:06:28.

ancestry website, where it was found that someone has posted

:06:28.:06:34.

information about Evelyn's Barber, Joyce's grandfather, as part of a

:06:34.:06:41.

family tree. Papped contacted the woman online. Is she a living blood

:06:41.:06:48.

relative? The reply came back saying that Joyce's mother was also

:06:48.:06:54.

her grandmother. That means that this lady is a niece to Joyce. That

:06:54.:07:00.

is incredible. What is even more amazing is that the contact has an

:07:00.:07:05.

anti- June, who is still alive. She would be Joyce's sister. Incredibly,

:07:05.:07:10.

she lives in Grimsby. It is time to tell Joyce what we found out and

:07:10.:07:13.

show her for the first time a precious photo of her mum that her

:07:13.:07:20.

niece has given us. Oh, that's lovely. I think it's wonderful that

:07:20.:07:25.

I know I've got a photograph of her after all this time. She looks very

:07:25.:07:31.

happy, doesn't she? Of course, we've got even more to tell her. We

:07:31.:07:38.

know that she went on to have four other children. All of them died

:07:38.:07:46.

apart from one. Right. Her name is June. She was born two years after

:07:46.:07:53.

you. She lives writing in Grimsby. Amazing, isn't it? It is entirely

:07:53.:08:01.

up to you but if you'd like, we could go to June, tell her about

:08:01.:08:05.

you and then arrange a meeting between the two of you. If she

:08:05.:08:10.

wants to. If she wants to and if you want to. Yeah. Can I think

:08:10.:08:16.

about that? Of course you can. would like to think about it.

:08:16.:08:23.

your time. It is a wonderful thing to know. I've got a sister. And a

:08:23.:08:32.

picture of your mum. It's a lovely What a story! It's one thing going

:08:32.:08:36.

out and making films for the show, but delivering life change in use.

:08:36.:08:43.

It had such as huge impact on Joyce's life. It was incredible to

:08:43.:08:47.

break this news to her and tell her that we'd found a photograph of her

:08:47.:08:50.

mum. That was such as huge thing. Finally she was able to piece

:08:50.:08:56.

together a little more about who she is and her life. I obviously

:08:56.:08:59.

knew that she had a sister, so why have to hold that back. Then to

:08:59.:09:03.

tell her that she had his sister. I won't tell you what happens. That

:09:03.:09:13.

is coming up in a little while. It We can't wait to see part two. All

:09:13.:09:17.

day, members of different cake clubs and the WI have been bringing

:09:17.:09:24.

along their lovely creations do our along their lovely creations do our

:09:24.:09:26.

best show tent, to enter our cake competition. All of these look

:09:26.:09:29.

marvellous. The criteria was that the cakes had to have something to

:09:29.:09:35.

do with Sheffield, whether it is a person, and iconic landmark may be.

:09:35.:09:41.

Allen, you were a chef in the sitcom Whites, would you? I was.

:09:41.:09:46.

you are qualified to judge this competition. There is no one better.

:09:46.:09:51.

The what do you look for in a good cake, Alan? Chocolate, usually.

:09:51.:09:55.

in that case, I can see the winner from here. I've already picked it.

:09:55.:10:01.

Mind you, there might be chocolate in any of them. We have Vanessa

:10:01.:10:08.

here. What was your inspiration? have a crockery cafe. And as a

:10:08.:10:17.

cyclist, every good cycle ride ends at a cafe. It's a fruit cake.

:10:17.:10:23.

really love these teacups. Alan gasp when he saw this one. The yes,

:10:23.:10:27.

this is based on the fact that Sheffield is the greenest city in

:10:27.:10:32.

Europe. So many trees surround Sheffield, so that's why I decided

:10:32.:10:39.

to do that one. And we have our youngest Baker of the date. That

:10:39.:10:45.

looks fantastic. It inspired me because I like football and

:10:45.:10:51.

Sheffield United. That's a good reason. Do you belong to the

:10:51.:11:01.
:11:01.:11:01.

chocolate one? This one. Beautiful again. You belong to the chocolate

:11:01.:11:09.

one. Yes. What does the chocolate ring mean? It's inspired by an old

:11:09.:11:13.

Sheffield landmark about four decades ago. It's been knocked down

:11:13.:11:17.

now but I thought it would be a good, easy cake to make. And you've

:11:17.:11:22.

got some lavender on yours. Yes. Mine is inspired by the Peak

:11:22.:11:27.

District. It uses local honey and lavender. It is inspired by the

:11:27.:11:31.

greenery of Sheffield. according to the Great British

:11:31.:11:36.

Bake-Off last night, lavender works well on cakes. I'm very impressed

:11:36.:11:40.

by the trees and intricate decoration, but it is Sheffield and

:11:41.:11:47.

you can't say no to the blades. Look at this wonderful cake. I

:11:47.:11:51.

picked this one as the winner. Congratulations to our youngest

:11:51.:12:01.
:12:01.:12:05.

I would have gone for the Peak District one. The cake bakers of

:12:05.:12:07.

Sheffield have really done their thing. Later, will be finding out

:12:07.:12:12.

how our new choir are shaping up. This was them earlier on. They are

:12:12.:12:17.

sounding very good. Despite the rain, and we did have a massive

:12:17.:12:22.

deluge at about 1pm, people have been coming out in their droves. We

:12:22.:12:32.
:12:32.:12:38.

have literally thousands of viewers. With over 2 million trees and 80

:12:38.:12:41.

public parks, Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in Europe. But

:12:41.:12:51.
:12:51.:12:56.

there's no excuse to stopping Look at that. Local Sheffield. Some

:12:56.:13:01.

crops will do well, others will fail. It's just the nature of the

:13:01.:13:05.

season. Sheffield has one of the biggest professional art scenes in

:13:05.:13:09.

the country. Today, this happy bunch of amateurs are going to

:13:09.:13:16.

recreate a piece for one of the city's famous sons. It is my first

:13:16.:13:21.

time at art work. The last time I was about five years old with a

:13:21.:13:30.

paint brush and a paint pot. I've never painted before. Our favourite

:13:30.:13:36.

it has been the mud and the rain! My favourite thing has been

:13:36.:13:41.

decorating the cup cakes, but I do like the bikes as well. With local

:13:42.:13:45.

success stories such as Michael Vaughan and Jess Ennis, Sheffield

:13:45.:13:48.

has a fine sporting pedigree. But for those only just about ready to

:13:48.:13:58.
:13:58.:13:58.

get off the couch, today has been a I thought it would be a bit of a

:13:58.:14:02.

laugh, my husband has had a go at all the different strength tests

:14:02.:14:06.

and flexibility tests because he's rubbish at things like that.

:14:06.:14:10.

incentive to get on and do a bit more fitness. Amazing things are

:14:10.:14:15.

happening in the history zone. We began back with the Iron Age tribes

:14:15.:14:22.

here. Come right up to date and we've got to the music of Sheffield

:14:22.:14:29.

in recent years. Tony Christie, he came from Sheffield, he gave us

:14:29.:14:39.
:14:39.:15:04.

As you could see, there's been loads to do in Sheffield. Aland and

:15:04.:15:11.

I have raced around the fields. -- Alan. Angellica, you've been in

:15:11.:15:15.

charge of a huge masterpiece we are about to reveal. I will reveal it.

:15:15.:15:21.

The wonderful people of Sheffield have been recreating a masterpiece.

:15:22.:15:28.

Joseph MacIntyre was a Sheffield lad and it has been cut into 96

:15:28.:15:35.

canvas squares. I think we should reveal it. Are you ready? I'm ready.

:15:35.:15:45.
:15:45.:15:56.

Absolutely fantastic. You can see this painting on display for a

:15:56.:16:00.

month at Weston Park Museum in Sheffield. Go along there to see it.

:16:00.:16:05.

What do you think? It is pretty good! Pretty good? It is brilliant.

:16:05.:16:10.

Some of the squares could do with another go. But generally amazing.

:16:10.:16:15.

Her the only dodgy thing was your unveiling of the painting. We will

:16:15.:16:21.

go to mat and Christine for some gardening. Indeed. We have got a

:16:21.:16:25.

massive screen here and it looks amazing, that art work. There are

:16:25.:16:31.

lot of gardening people here. Christine is in charge. Absolutely.

:16:31.:16:36.

I in supervising five local groups that up planting and they will take

:16:36.:16:40.

them home and look after them. We have got the scouts and the

:16:40.:16:45.

Brownies. Let's have a quick word. Will you get some kind of

:16:45.:16:49.

environmental badge for this? You don't know? What is your favourite

:16:49.:16:55.

plant? Probably this one. It will look nice in the autumn. That is

:16:55.:17:02.

the idea. For a will look beautiful all year round. A spectacular plant.

:17:02.:17:07.

Colour in the autumn. Pass the winter progresses, these dark,

:17:07.:17:13.

plants will look better. -- dark coloured plants. Every single one

:17:13.:17:20.

of these will look brilliant through the winter. Let's have a

:17:20.:17:25.

little wonder. You're doing very well, girls. Let's nip down here

:17:25.:17:30.

from the local squash club. We have a world champion here. Nick Matthew.

:17:30.:17:36.

You must be good at squashing them down! I'm better at squash...

:17:36.:17:40.

you arrange these? For five helped them arrange them and now they are

:17:40.:17:44.

planting them so they will look good. If you have never planted

:17:44.:17:51.

before, you can lose the plot very quickly. As a planting Guide,...

:17:51.:17:56.

Have you done a lot of planting before? No. You have to look after

:17:56.:18:03.

this plant. No. A break it to you gently! We will go all the way down

:18:03.:18:07.

to the very bottom, to the Children's Hospital charity. Is

:18:07.:18:11.

that where this is going to go? This is going to go in Weston Park,

:18:11.:18:15.

just in front of the Children's Hospital. You all work in the

:18:15.:18:20.

hospital. We do, I'm a doctor at the Children's Hospital. Her I'm an

:18:20.:18:27.

Executive PA. I'm a matron. Do you do a lot of gardening? Not at the

:18:27.:18:32.

hospital, I do have a garden. you all promised to look after

:18:32.:18:40.

these? Yes. We will be back later to see how they look. While this

:18:40.:18:44.

lot have been flowering the city, one artist is planning a sculpture

:18:44.:18:51.

that will tower over it. Alex Riley on a big man coming to town.

:18:51.:18:55.

Nothing said -- says you're approaching Sheffield like the

:18:55.:19:00.

cooling towers. But now they've gone, the area is said to be

:19:00.:19:05.

transformed by a new landmark. The huge piece of public art entitled

:19:05.:19:15.
:19:15.:19:20.

Nice to meet you. I was expecting it to be bigger. This is only a

:19:20.:19:24.

model, about 30 centimetres. big will it be when it is on the

:19:24.:19:28.

site? He is sitting down, altogether it is about 30 metres

:19:28.:19:34.

tall. That is pretty high. What was the inspiration? Steel in Sheffield

:19:34.:19:38.

and Rotherham has such a reputation across the world. I thought

:19:38.:19:42.

something like this might be a good piece to represent people who

:19:42.:19:48.

worked in those industries. It is heavy! As both an art lover and a

:19:48.:19:53.

keen motorist, I'm excited about how the man of Steel will interact

:19:53.:20:00.

spatially with the M1 and the A361. You'll be able to view the art work

:20:00.:20:06.

at 70 mph on two different levels. That is what I call an art gallery!

:20:06.:20:10.

Anthony Gormley's the Angel of the North said the President for

:20:10.:20:15.

roadside viewing in 1998. Since then, communities across the UK

:20:15.:20:19.

have been falling over themselves to create something equally huge

:20:19.:20:25.

and deeply meaningful. Rise, symbolising a new chapter in

:20:25.:20:31.

Belfast's history, was constructed in 2011. Damien Hirst plans to

:20:31.:20:39.

build Verity, a bronze clad pregnant girl wielding scale spinel

:20:39.:20:44.

-- Ilfracombe. A modern allegory of treatment Justice. Red car have

:20:44.:20:48.

settled for appear that goes up and not so long. That big horse in Kent

:20:48.:20:54.

is all off. When dream was conditioned -- commissioned on the

:20:54.:20:56.

M62 near St Helens, part of the proposal considered whether it

:20:56.:21:01.

would increase the number of road accidents. A reported 35 million

:21:01.:21:05.

vehicles pass by here every year. The main question about public art

:21:05.:21:12.

projects like this is whether they truly enriched our lives. How have

:21:12.:21:19.

the people of St Helens embrace this idea? A mixed reaction! We've

:21:19.:21:24.

had 64,000 visitors in one year from all over the world. Russia,

:21:24.:21:29.

China, America, New Zealand, Australia. They've come here. We

:21:29.:21:34.

would never have had that before. What we are hoping for, it will do

:21:34.:21:38.

for St Helens South what Angel of the North has done for Gateshead.

:21:38.:21:42.

It seems the more widespread roadside art becomes, the more

:21:42.:21:48.

challenging it is to catch the eye and interest of its mobile audience.

:21:48.:21:55.

It is going to be great! Are you a fan of La Joe Hart? I love the

:21:55.:22:02.

Angel of the North. It could have gone either way. But everybody in

:22:02.:22:06.

the north-east embraced it straight away and ditties usually loved.

:22:06.:22:14.

you call your wife Your Angel of the North? My wife? Anyway, you are

:22:14.:22:20.

back on the road. You have a tour coming up. It is called Life is

:22:20.:22:26.

Pain. The name of my show! Is it ironic as might I thought it was a

:22:26.:22:30.

good idea for a title and I saw that boaster and I thought this was

:22:31.:22:34.

a talk about suicide followed by an actual suicide. It is tongue-in-

:22:34.:22:39.

cheek. Life is Pain, of course, but it is also full of silly nonsense

:22:39.:22:44.

as well. I'm sure people will be shouting, why have they been 13

:22:44.:22:51.

years? Sheer laziness. I last did stand-up comedy in the 1990s and a

:22:51.:22:55.

slightly fell out of love with the motorways. Then I did some TV and

:22:55.:22:59.

then I met my wife and had children. For years have gone by and last

:22:59.:23:04.

year we went to Australia and did QI live in Australia in theatres.

:23:04.:23:09.

That gave us a shot in the arm for QI as well. I also did a stand-up

:23:09.:23:13.

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.

:23:43.:23:48.

nervous. A few weeks ago, I did a charity night for the teenage

:23:48.:23:52.

Cancer Trust at the Albert Hall and Jason was introducing and I had to

:23:52.:23:59.

do a spot there. Jimmy Carr was on before me letting off these huge

:23:59.:24:05.

comedic hand grenades. I thought, what am I doing? And once I was

:24:05.:24:09.

back on with the microphone, it felt great. I felt like I was back

:24:09.:24:13.

doing what I do. He said the best thing about stand-up is you don't

one series! Brilliant. Be it is up to you. You've wanted to do it

:24:22.:24:26.

since you were very little. Is it right that you write a sitcom at

:24:26.:24:31.

11? That is not right. I wrote quite an amusing novel which took

:24:31.:24:36.

up 21 pages of my exercise book when I was about eight. Brilliant.

:24:36.:24:39.

They ask us to write a story and one page was considered a good

:24:39.:24:46.

effort. I was a bit of a freak. I've always liked stories. Moving

:24:46.:24:51.

away from comedy for a second. What? Why? We have to speak about

:24:51.:24:54.

Angellica Bell. Explain all! grandad has lived most of his life

memories about working with a metal Steele. From skyscrapers to cutlery,

:26:18.:26:25.

-- made Sheffield world famous. The word Sheffield and steel have

:26:25.:26:29.

become permanently welded together in a story that began hundreds of

:26:29.:26:36.

years ago. References to knives from Sheffield date back to the

:26:36.:26:40.

14th century, with its combination of coal, iron ore and five rivers,

:26:40.:26:45.

it was an ideal site for steel production. 200 years ago, water

:26:45.:26:48.

wells like this were used to harness the power of Sheffield

:26:48.:26:56.

rivers. And drive rhinestones like this. It meant they could mass-

:26:56.:27:05.

produce steel blades and grind them Cover generations, cutting edge

:27:05.:27:11.

production techniques were developed here. My grandad was a

:27:11.:27:15.

steelworker for over 50 years. Hello! Since I was small, he's told

:27:15.:27:21.

me about life at the works. You've lived in and around Sheffield or

:27:21.:27:27.

your life. How has the city changed since you were lit young? In the

:27:27.:27:32.

1940s until the 1960s, you wouldn't have seen across this barely

:27:32.:27:37.

because there would be Jimmy's, the place would be bristling with

Jamie's. -- H indies. A lot of people suffered with respiratory

:27:44.:27:50.

diseases. People were dying from these situations. On bad days, you

:27:50.:27:54.

could see so it in the atmosphere in your own home, in the room but

:27:54.:27:59.

your own home. No doubt about it, it was a dirty, unhealthy place and

:27:59.:28:06.

it was a hard place to live. 1913, Sheffield steel industry made

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

site was stainless-steel was developed. When he started, it

:28:23.:28:32.

specialised in metal for submarines, ships and aeroplanes. I started

:28:32.:28:39.

work on April 1st, 1946. It was a completely alien land. The noise,

:28:39.:28:45.

the dirt, you could taste the sulphur in the atmosphere. You must

:28:45.:28:49.

have had loads of good memories, but were they are bad memories as

:28:49.:28:55.

well? There were bad memories and they were in the 1970s and 1980s.

:28:55.:29:01.

The steel industry was being decimated, all of us were in danger

:29:01.:29:09.

of losing our jobs. A so by the 1970s and 1980s, the rust had set

:29:09.:29:13.

in, with competition from abroad, the industry which had made

:29:13.:29:18.

because we were struggling to make ends meet. They've got over the

hump, they have invested in new equipment and people are looking

Although the industry has now shrunk, Sheffield has still a major

cutting edge technology. Joining as his Gyles. You've brought along a

:30:22.:30:27.

lovely living piece of history in the lovely Kathleen. Kathleen

:30:27.:30:33.

Roberts is 90 years of age. You won not! She is living history. She is

:30:33.:30:37.

the first woman of Steel of Sheffield. That way, this woman

:30:37.:30:47.
:30:47.:30:49.

helped us win the Second World War. Kathleen, what did you do? I worked

:30:49.:30:56.

in a rolling mill. Can you collaborate, what does that mean?

:30:56.:31:02.

was working on a strip rolling machine. It rolled seven inches

:31:02.:31:10.

wide. We rode the steel from being a sheet to the depth that we needed

:31:10.:31:16.

for whatever. We never knew what we were doing. These were blokes jobs.

:31:16.:31:20.

The men had gone off to war and the women were made to work here. What

:31:20.:31:29.

were you paid? I worked 72 hours a week, 12 hours nights and days. For

:31:29.:31:37.

my night week I got about �5.80. Were the men paid the same?

:31:37.:31:42.

they got more than we did. No one to the end of the war. Is it right

:31:42.:31:47.

that you were the first woman... this particular firm, yes.

:31:47.:31:53.

reaction did you get? I was sent for the crane driver's job. I knew

:31:53.:32:01.

I couldn't do it for heights! They had to keep me. Were the men

:32:01.:32:06.

welcoming? Not at all. The men really did not want to show as

:32:06.:32:13.

anything. They didn't think it was our place. The bombs were falling.

:32:13.:32:16.

This was the second world war, backs against the wall, bombs

:32:16.:32:24.

falling all around you. Yes. But eventually they softened a bit and

:32:24.:32:29.

were quite willing them to help us and show us. It was heavy work.

:32:29.:32:36.

Hard. Gyles, talking of heavy work, during the First World War there

:32:36.:32:41.

was an elegant involved. This is the Lyness of the Second World War.

:32:41.:32:44.

In the First World War in Sheffield, they literally brought an elephant

:32:44.:32:49.

in to help. Lizzie the elephant came, she was shifting Steele in

:32:49.:32:56.

Sheffield to help us win the First World War. Gyles, you arrived in

:32:56.:33:02.

style today in another piece of Sheffield steel. I arrive today in

:33:02.:33:08.

some style in this vehicle here. There I am. Alan, you are a fan of

:33:08.:33:14.

the classic car. You do look a bit like Toad from Toad Hall in this.

:33:14.:33:20.

thought I looked a bit like Terry- Thomas! That is a Sheffield Simplex,

:33:20.:33:26.

only three of them in the world. That amazing vehicle, 1920 it was

:33:26.:33:30.

built, Sheffield steel is what it was made of. It was the first car

:33:30.:33:34.

that had an engine motor. Before it was just a grand at the start of

:33:34.:33:40.

the car. Only three in the world. That one is owned by Earl

:33:40.:33:44.

Fitzwilliam. Now I am cruising around Sheffield in it, it's a very

:33:44.:33:50.

smooth ride. Thank you very much. There's going to be a statue of

:33:50.:33:54.

caffeine and her kind. The women of steel are going to be immortalised

:33:54.:34:04.
:34:04.:34:05.

Earlier, we asked for all of your camping photos. Here we have Tom.

:34:05.:34:09.

He said, this is a picture of my brother eating a giant Yorkshire

:34:09.:34:14.

pudding whilst camping. Look at grandad one, doing what he does

:34:14.:34:24.

Gyles, you are getting ready because we've got this brilliant

:34:24.:34:28.

game. The butler and I have been working hard. You will understand

:34:28.:34:33.

why because cutlery and flat where may be involved. Have you been

:34:33.:34:37.

limbering up? I have been in training. You are up against Mike

:34:37.:34:44.

Dilger. He has been getting an inside track. This game requires

:34:44.:34:48.

excellent acceleration skills. To see how the animals do it, I put

:34:48.:34:56.

I've done some crazy things to experience what some animals can do.

:34:56.:35:01.

Running as fast as a head, or catching fish Lakhan Ospreys. But

:35:01.:35:06.

there are some animals that can stand a huge pall of gravity, known

:35:06.:35:10.

as G force. G-forces what you feel on a roller coaster when you are

:35:10.:35:14.

accelerating rapidly, slowing down dramatically or pulling out of that

:35:14.:35:19.

dive. It is the extra force of gravity pulling on your insides.

:35:19.:35:24.

For some animals that force is a way of life, big time. The

:35:24.:35:28.

peregrine falcon is the fastest animal on the planet, reaching

:35:28.:35:33.

around 200 mph. But when it pours out of its dive, it can experience

:35:33.:35:41.

as much as 25 G-force. We can briefly experience between

:35:41.:35:45.

fortified on most Roller coasters in the UK. This Vettel bog can jump

:35:45.:35:50.

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

:35:50.:35:56.

g. But when it comes to G-force, even the best fighter pilot would

:35:56.:35:58.

find it difficult to reach double figures without losing

:35:58.:36:03.

consciousness. So why can't we do the same, and what happens to us

:36:03.:36:10.

when we try? This fighter pilot testing facility in Hampshire has

:36:10.:36:13.

Britain's only human centrifuge machine. It has been used for

:36:13.:36:20.

research in both aviation and space travel for the last 60 years. Why

:36:20.:36:24.

are human so poor at coping with extreme G-force? The main problem

:36:24.:36:29.

is the size of us in comparison to a lot of smaller creatures. What

:36:29.:36:33.

happens is as the gravity increases, then everything in our body begins

:36:33.:36:38.

to wait a lot more than usual. That includes the blood that circulates

:36:38.:36:42.

around the body. The heart has great difficulty getting bad blood

:36:42.:36:47.

up to the brain to keep us conscious. For it to stay conscious,

:36:47.:36:52.

this insect store some oxygen in its brain so it can still function

:36:52.:36:57.

when it hits 400 G-force. However, we rely on my heart to pump oxygen

:36:57.:37:02.

rich blood to of a brain and, as I'm not trained to handle G-force,

:37:02.:37:06.

Henry is only going to take me as far as I can safely go. I would

:37:06.:37:12.

just checked to make sure everything is OK. We have your ECG

:37:12.:37:22.

connected so we can make sure your It feels like a very comfortable

:37:38.:37:53.

At 2.5 I can hardly move a muscle, in contrast to peregrines which

:37:53.:38:03.
:38:03.:38:04.

Believe it or not, at the moment you are weighing over a third of a

:38:04.:38:08.

ton. A animals can cope with huge G-force, partly because they only

:38:08.:38:13.

experience it for a split-second. But I've been going for a full

:38:13.:38:21.

minute and a half and I'm beginning It is pulling on to your cheeks.

:38:22.:38:29.

Hence, you are looking about 15 years older than you are. At Ford G

:38:32.:38:38.

to get the blood up into your brain. I can't move, I can't see properly

:38:48.:39:13.

Mike, I'm concerned you are going My mouth is dry, my eyes went

for his next bit. We've got to have a silly game. It is called the

And what teams we have for this. Yes. We have three members of The

One Show family in each team. We have Serran and Motty. -- Marty.

:40:25.:40:32.

They will hand the Cadbury and burgers to Anita and Angellica.

They will then run down and hand them to Gyles and Mike, who will

:40:37.:40:42.

then run over here and set the meal for the man of Steel. That is the

:40:42.:40:47.

premise, setting a meal for the man of Steel. Phil is your money on?

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 47 seconds

Here is your prize. Well done. We will definitely have to play this

:42:19.:42:27.

again. Silver is just as good, it's a medal just the same. Lots still

:42:58.:43:04.

but Britain's front gardens can confirm - yes, it is. Here in

:43:04.:43:08.

Halifax, the summer shrubs, hydrangeas and roses are in bloom

:43:08.:43:14.

everywhere. There's no place for shrinking violets! The perennials

:43:14.:43:22.

of bold and brash, a real eye- popping colour. Hot, sizzling

:43:22.:43:27.

cacophony of flaming red. They remind me of the infernal fires of

:43:27.:43:32.

hell! Driving around, it's not long before I find something that really

:43:32.:43:42.
:43:42.:43:43.

stands out. A hydrangea, and look at the buddleia. Look at that! What

:43:43.:43:53.
:43:53.:43:54.

I was not expecting to see such a fantastic specimen of this in

:43:54.:44:04.
:44:04.:44:07.

Jacqueline, do you know how high up you are you? About 1000 feet.

:44:07.:44:10.

not expecting to see this at his height. It's a tender plant from

:44:10.:44:14.

Australia. I think it must have altitude sickness or something!

:44:15.:44:21.

Growing at 1000 ft high, free- standing, exposed to the elements.

:44:21.:44:26.

Look at it! We get Red 4 winds round this neck of the woods as

:44:26.:44:30.

well. And you wouldn't know looking at that. But you've obviously got

:44:30.:44:39.

green fingers to get back to flower like that. Magic! After a short

:44:39.:44:44.

summer shower, a whopping fuchsia listens and shines, adding a splash

:44:44.:44:52.

of glorious colour to the roadside. Fantastic cascades of red and blue,

and big, juicy seed pods. These apparently we used by the South

cracker! It is better known as the smoke bush. What is the story?

:45:21.:45:26.

Veronika, how old is this plant? About 10 years old. It is not

:45:26.:45:32.

ancient, but it is quite big. started off as a small baby. Lovely.

:45:32.:45:36.

What do you do to make it look so good? It gets a lot of manure and

:45:36.:45:40.

we tried to prune back what is behind it so it will get light from

:45:41.:45:50.

all sides. That is exactly... If a plant is happy, leave it alone.

:45:50.:45:54.

Glorious. Look at that beautiful cloud of flowers. You have

:45:54.:45:59.

positioned it very well because it is a sun lover. Yes. The sunlight

:45:59.:46:03.

coming through it, lighting the leaves from behind so you get a lot

:46:03.:46:06.

of different colours. Like light going through a stained-glass

:46:06.:46:10.

window. You can see why it is called a smoke plant because it

:46:10.:46:17.

looks hazy. Do people admire it as they come by? Occasionally we

:46:17.:46:22.

notice people walking past and stopping. They have a little look.

:46:22.:46:27.

It is nice if somebody likes your garden. It means we've done a good

job. The purple froth of could Highness, those lovely glistening

been doing some science things all day long. It's stop now. Follow us

:47:20.:47:29.

over here. Don't pull anything out! What is this about? We have two

:47:29.:47:33.

balls, a tennis ball and a steel ball. We will drop them down as

:47:33.:47:42.

pipe onto the anvil. Which one will bounce the highest? Tennis ball.

:47:42.:47:52.

would say tennis ball. I will say the steel ball. Classic QI. About

:48:02.:48:06.

five. Try this deal Paul. 8! It is very simple. Win this hits that,

:48:06.:48:10.

some of the energy from the drop goes into distorting the tennis

:48:10.:48:13.

ball. You lose some of the energy for top with this, none of the

:48:13.:48:19.

energy is lost so all of it goes into a shooting it back in the air.

:48:19.:48:24.

You just mentioned QI. I think you've been introduced to this next

:48:24.:48:30.

experiment. Can you explain the principle behind this? We have two

:48:30.:48:34.

books, two paperbacks, and they have been interleaved. There's no

:48:35.:48:43.

clue or anything. Crab that end. you can't separate them. All of
