DRAMATIC MUSIC

0:00:300:00:32

Hello, welcome to Blue Peter, Flambe Circus.

0:00:410:00:43

Thanks very much for having us.

0:00:430:00:45

Never mind this chat. Hand me my fiery whip, please, woman.

0:00:450:00:47

You're not going to get to do fire today, I'm afraid.

0:00:470:00:50

-We're leaving that to us professionals.

-All right.

0:00:500:00:52

We have trained for at least ten years with fire

0:00:520:00:54

and much longer before that.

0:00:540:00:56

So that is the key to all this - practice makes perfect.

0:00:560:00:59

So that's what you guys get to have a go at today.

0:00:590:01:01

-Good, what are we doing?

-What on earth...?

0:01:010:01:03

Show the lovely audience what you have in your hands.

0:01:030:01:05

-What are they?

-What do you call them?

-These are called poi.

0:01:050:01:08

They originated in New Zealand and were used by the Maoris

0:01:080:01:10

as a way of training for weapons

0:01:100:01:12

and they use them in dances and all sorts of stuff.

0:01:120:01:15

-Oh, my goodness, they're changing colour.

-Magic.

0:01:150:01:18

So, you guys are going to get to go right now. Are you ready?

0:01:180:01:21

Before we do, it's worth saying you can join in with this at home.

0:01:210:01:24

You certainly can, yes. We actually train with sock poi,

0:01:240:01:26

which is actually what it says on the tin - a long pair of socks,

0:01:260:01:29

whack a tennis ball in the bottom, tie a knot in the end,

0:01:290:01:31

-you can spin in your back garden.

-Make sure you've got plenty of space

0:01:310:01:34

if you're going to do that, or you'll whack people in the face.

0:01:340:01:36

-Look at you already, doing it.

-I'm loving this.

-Look at Barney,

0:01:360:01:40

showing off. So, we're going to take it right back to basics.

0:01:400:01:42

First move, Barney's demonstrating it perfectly.

0:01:420:01:45

Start spinning them forwards. That's it.

0:01:450:01:47

Imagine you're a train on a track.

0:01:470:01:48

There you go, a bit of knee action as well, loving it.

0:01:480:01:51

-You guys are pros.

-We're into this.

-Next, we're going to go backwards.

0:01:510:01:55

-That's it, nice and steady.

-Wait, is it arms?

0:01:550:01:58

-No, wrists.

-Arms, wrists, whatever. All right, are you ready?

0:01:580:02:03

-This one will melt your brain a little bit.

-OK.

0:02:030:02:06

We're going to try one forward and one backwards. Sounds super easy,

0:02:060:02:10

-but it's really hard.

-You're doing it and speaking.

-I know.

0:02:100:02:13

-You're a hero.

-OK, so forwards and backwards.

0:02:130:02:15

One forwards and one backwards.

0:02:150:02:17

Look at Radzi's concentration face.

0:02:170:02:19

Hello, I'm doing it!

0:02:190:02:21

-Yeah!

-Wait, am I doing it?

-I think you're doing it.

0:02:210:02:24

-I can't tell.

-Just smile, they'll never know.

0:02:240:02:27

OK, the last move for you guys to try is called Butterfly.

0:02:270:02:30

-It looks like this.

-Yeah, easy, no worries.

0:02:300:02:32

It's kind of like aeroplane propellers or butterfly wings.

0:02:320:02:36

-I just hit myself in the head.

-So, just in front of you.

0:02:360:02:39

It won't go right round your bobble.

0:02:390:02:41

-Look at that for a butterfly.

-Barney's going outwards,

0:02:410:02:43

-that's even better.

-We're not just doing this cos I'm rubbish,

0:02:430:02:46

-there's a point of this, isn't there?

-You guys are actually

0:02:460:02:49

going to be involved in our fire show later.
