Hello. Hello. Today, we are hoping to prove to you that baking is

:00:28.:00:31.

simple and easy. Baking, not eating, they're not for you.: sorry.

:00:31.:00:34.

Children in need is around the corner, but there's still time for

:00:34.:00:39.

you to get involved and support Children In Need by baking. Our

:00:39.:00:44.

skills in the kitchen are kind of limited. Speak for yourself, I make

:00:44.:00:51.

a lovely quiche. We have got an expert joining us. He was spot -

:00:51.:00:55.

spotted by Jamie Oliver and now he's the host of Junior Bake Off.

:00:55.:01:01.

You can catch it at 6.0 every night this week on the CBBC channel.

:01:01.:01:06.

the very best of Britain's budding bakers are in the mix. Am I getting

:01:06.:01:11.

on your nerves? Who will rise to the challenge? It's going to be

:01:11.:01:21.
:01:21.:01:27.

very tough. It's Aaron Craze. Come on in. Wouldn't it be amazing if

:01:27.:01:31.

the badges were that size. Welcome to the show. Talk about the

:01:31.:01:35.

contestants on your show. Not only do they have to perform in front of

:01:35.:01:38.

the TV crew, they have judges watching their every move. They

:01:38.:01:43.

must find it tough? Unbelievable. They're little soldiers, I must

:01:43.:01:46.

admit. It's so difficult to bake something because it's a science,

:01:46.:01:51.

baking. To have all those cameras and me coming over going "what are

:01:51.:01:55.

you doing..." and that all the time must be annoying. You were singing

:01:55.:01:58.

their praises before. Sounds like these guys are really creative?

:01:58.:02:01.

They are. They get set challenges, they have their tasks but then they

:02:01.:02:05.

have to be creative and they make things like, some of the stuff they

:02:05.:02:09.

make you will be like, how do they do that with flour and eggs, do you

:02:09.:02:14.

know what I mean? Hopefully you won't be saying that today. You

:02:14.:02:24.

will be cooking today helping us support our appeal. What do we do?

:02:24.:02:30.

This is a basic biscuit recipe, so we are going to put some flour in,

:02:30.:02:37.

a bit of plain flour in there. Butter. You can chop it up, but I'm

:02:37.:02:41.

just going to pop it in soft, unsalted butter. Don't want any

:02:41.:02:46.

salt in it. Sugar. Caster sugar. Pop that straight in. So we've got

:02:46.:02:52.

the sweet, creaminess going on. The egg will bind it all together. And

:02:52.:02:59.

flavour. Vanilla. You carry on. You, you've been eating some.

:02:59.:03:05.

haven't. Get out. Barney, Children In Need, yeah, you're not a child.

:03:05.:03:10.

We are trying to prove to you that it's easy and you are a hindrance.

:03:10.:03:14.

Carry on. Mix it all together or you can use a food processor. Go,

:03:14.:03:21.

go, go, look! That was a bit hard, sorry. Ouch. B So we mix this all

:03:21.:03:26.

together. You do that, I'll keep my hands nice and clean. OK. Because

:03:26.:03:30.

obviously I know what you are like at rolling, the word has spread, so

:03:30.:03:37.

we've got one ready. You can have a little roll. Not too much. That's

:03:37.:03:46.

it. Well done. Pressure in the kitchen. What is that? The most

:03:46.:03:49.

pathetic fishing rod I've ever seen. Get out! If you haven't got a

:03:49.:03:54.

rolling pin indoors, hello, a tin! Or you can use a wine bottle or

:03:55.:04:02.

something like that. Is that for a biscuit size? No, for rolling the

:04:02.:04:07.

dough. Oh. We want to get this ready by the end of the show. Pop

:04:07.:04:12.

them in the oven when it's nice and hot. When it comes out... Behave

:04:12.:04:19.

yourself, please. I will. Make sure it's nice and cold on to the non-

:04:19.:04:24.

stick baking tray. Chuck it in the oven. While you are doing that,

:04:24.:04:27.

let's stick with the theme of food because this time of year sees lots

:04:28.:04:30.

of changes in the woodlands and forest areas and lots of things

:04:30.:04:39.

fall from trees, not just leaves but things that you can cut with.

:04:39.:04:44.

Rav Wilding is on the case. When I'm off duty, there's nothing I

:04:44.:04:48.

like more than taking a stroll with a picnic. But, what if I was to

:04:48.:04:56.

tell you that cordial, jam, cake, jelly and biscuits can all be made

:04:56.:05:00.

with ingredients found in the countryside. Foraging is the act of

:05:01.:05:06.

searching for food but could also be described as making good use of

:05:06.:05:11.

nature's la Da. This year has been one of the most successful years of

:05:11.:05:16.

wild fruit. Eating the wrong food can be dangerous. You should only

:05:16.:05:21.

try it under expert supervision. Meet Chris, the King of foraging.

:05:21.:05:26.

He'll show me how to make some skreet treats using ingredients

:05:26.:05:30.

from this woodland -- sweet treats. Can anyone do this? You have to

:05:31.:05:34.

know what you are doing was a there are poisonous things out there, but

:05:34.:05:40.

you can learn very, very quickly. What sort of tasty treats can be

:05:40.:05:45.

out in the wilderness like this? autumn, this time of year, we've

:05:45.:05:50.

got berries, nuts, roots, I've got a few things for you to get today.

:05:50.:05:56.

How do I know which ones to get? Use your smartphone, get dandelion

:05:56.:06:03.

roots, berries, rose hips and hawthorn. Basket and spade. Thank

:06:03.:06:10.

you. I'll leave you do it. What am I gonna do now?! First on

:06:10.:06:15.

my solicit a dandelion I've got to find. But to make things worse,

:06:15.:06:19.

they've apparently got no flowers because it's autumn so I'm looking

:06:19.:06:25.

for a green stick in a very large green field! But, my app is telling

:06:25.:06:30.

me that the word is originally from a lion tooth because of the shape

:06:30.:06:35.

of the leaves, so hopefully that's going to be my clue as to finding

:06:35.:06:41.

the dandelion in this field. Close, but I don't think it's the one.

:06:41.:06:46.

Really hard to tell without the actual flower on it because that's

:06:46.:06:50.

the most distinctive part that I remember. I think we're in luck

:06:50.:06:59.

here. That's one. See the leaf? It's like teeth there. I think I've

:06:59.:07:09.
:07:09.:07:10.

found my dandelion. Right. Let's dig this up. There it is. My first

:07:10.:07:15.

dandelion root. I'm looking for rose hips and I remember these from

:07:15.:07:21.

school because they make a good itching powder. These little guys

:07:21.:07:28.

here, definitely rose hips. Hawthorns. This is definitely them.

:07:28.:07:33.

They're a lot smaller than rose hips. They grow on a completely

:07:33.:07:43.

different type of tree. But this is them. And this is a young plant. It

:07:43.:07:47.

will have a great big root down the bottom and that's the bit I need to

:07:47.:07:57.
:07:57.:08:06.

These are wood havens which smell a bit like cloves. They have a

:08:06.:08:10.

delicate root so I can't use the shovel because I'll probably break

:08:10.:08:16.

it. We got it. There we go. Right, I've got all my tasty ingredients.

:08:16.:08:23.

Now, it's off to the kitchen. First thing's first. We wash the

:08:23.:08:29.

rose hips and hawthorns. A massive pesle and mortar. Whack 'em in

:08:29.:08:35.

there. Pestle and mortar. What are the squashed rose hips going to

:08:35.:08:40.

become? We'll make a pulp out of them and make a jelly. Get your

:08:41.:08:47.

hand in there. Rose hip jelly mice - first time for everything, eh.

:08:47.:08:52.

We've got most of that out. Put this to one side and then we've got

:08:52.:08:58.

the hawthorns. What is this one going to be? We add a few

:08:58.:09:06.

ingredients from the store cupboard, apples and water. We've God our

:09:06.:09:15.

dandelion roots and birdoch roots. They are going to make a dandelion

:09:15.:09:22.

and birdoch drink. Chris stews the other ingredients for 30 minutes.

:09:22.:09:27.

There's the dandelion roots. The wood haven roots, the thin ones,

:09:27.:09:33.

they have that clove flavour. All that into the pan. Pop a lid on.

:09:33.:09:43.
:09:43.:09:43.

We'll go over to the stove. See how the other things are doing as well.

:09:43.:09:48.

Well, it definitely looks more like food now and smells like appetising

:09:48.:09:52.

food now. It's starting to smell fruity now isn't it? We've got a

:09:52.:09:56.

lovely pulp in there, everything's gone great. A lovely Pinky colour

:09:56.:10:01.

as well. We need to get all this into there and we are going to

:10:01.:10:05.

press it through so the pulp will come through and the little seeds

:10:05.:10:10.

and skin and everything will stay inside. We do that with both sets

:10:10.:10:16.

of ber ris before adding honey, lemon juice and glycerine to set

:10:16.:10:22.

the jelly mice. The rose hips are poured into the moulds. The

:10:22.:10:31.

hawthorns are spread thinly. We just need to sieve the dandelion

:10:31.:10:41.
:10:41.:10:51.

and burdenoch cordial. -- bu urdoch. These are the roots I dug up myself.

:10:51.:10:56.

That's actually really nice. Pop it in like a chew, a piece of

:10:56.:11:03.

liquorice or something. Should I have a mouse bottom? Yes, and I'll

:11:03.:11:08.

have a head. Chuck it all in Yes, just like a jelly sweet. Again,

:11:08.:11:13.

really, really nice. Don't worry, guys, we'll make sure we save some

:11:13.:11:16.

of this and get it to you in the studio.

:11:16.:11:21.

Cheers, Rav, he has sent some back to the studio. It's quite a strong

:11:21.:11:25.

smell and I think it's going to be an Quy ired taste. Thank you but

:11:25.:11:28.

I'll put that over there for now. You can have it later, Aaron. If

:11:29.:11:33.

you decide to go foraging and get berries, get expert advice before

:11:33.:11:42.

you eat some of them because some of them make you ill. One thing

:11:42.:11:46.

that's undeniably delicious... These are the old biscuits. Smell

:11:46.:11:51.

that! They do smell great. Ten more minutes, 180 and you've got some

:11:51.:11:55.

lovely biscuits to decorate. When they come out, we'll let them cool

:11:55.:12:05.
:12:05.:12:06.

with the icing pens. Fantastic. Supermarket. You can get those.

:12:06.:12:12.

Barn yirbgs you can have the first biscuit because I feel guilty for

:12:12.:12:17.

hitting you earlier. -- Barney. You don't always get what you want.

:12:17.:12:21.

Next year, 2012 is the year of the superhero. All your favourites will

:12:21.:12:26.

be in the cinemas. Because of that, we have two superhero Royaltys in

:12:26.:12:30.

the studio today. John McCrae and Mark Miller. Welcome to the show.

:12:30.:12:35.

You are the guys that are behind the comic strips we see. John, you

:12:35.:12:40.

are an artist who's drawn all sorts of characters like? Batman,

:12:40.:12:45.

superwoman, Wonderwoman, Batman, the Simpsons and Scooby Doo.

:12:45.:12:51.

write the comics? Yes, Spider-Man, Hulk and things like that. Is it

:12:51.:12:55.

not every boy's dream? It was my dream when I was five so I can't

:12:55.:13:03.

believe at 41 I'm get to do it, it's great. Dreams that you have

:13:03.:13:09.

when you are little can come true. What are you doing at the moment?

:13:09.:13:13.

Wii Spider-Man. This is the guy that draws Spider-Man in the comics

:13:14.:13:21.

you buy which is impressive. Did you start early? I had an Avengers

:13:21.:13:25.

comic when I was four and that was it, twoing to be a comic artist and

:13:25.:13:30.

nothing could dissuade me. When I was 18, I realised I'd have to

:13:30.:13:35.

submit my artwork to the companies and after four years, I got my

:13:35.:13:39.

first job. Through learning? Did you go to college or were you good

:13:39.:13:43.

at drawing? I was reasonable and it was just through copying. I went to

:13:43.:13:48.

art college for two months. that was it? Yes, I dropped out.

:13:48.:13:51.

That's all right, look at what you are doing, it's amazing. I went to

:13:51.:13:55.

the careers officer and said I would like to write comics and she

:13:56.:14:01.

looked at me like I was mad. Luckily technology caught up with

:14:01.:14:05.

us. It's great. How do you work together? Does the

:14:05.:14:10.

story come first then the pictures? I'm given the blank piece of paper

:14:10.:14:14.

which is cool for the readers and nice for the artist to draws. Then

:14:14.:14:21.

all the hard work is done by John. I'll write a thousand spaceships

:14:21.:14:25.

crashing in LA and then John has to draw it. Mark's the kind of guy

:14:25.:14:29.

that would count them to make sure you've got that many. Yes. Barney

:14:29.:14:33.

is wearing a cape, ready for action. He's poised waiting for the whistle

:14:33.:14:37.

in the sky and he'll save anybody from distress. This is for a reason

:14:37.:14:40.

because you have turned myself and Barney into superhero characters.

:14:40.:14:45.

Look at this, very excited about this. These are the comic strips

:14:45.:14:50.

you have put us in. Talk us through the story? Blue Peter asked us to

:14:50.:14:57.

come up with a two-page story for the readers. I mean the viewers.

:14:57.:15:02.

This is the idea that the badges will give you super powers, the

:15:02.:15:08.

Blue Peter badge. All the Blue Peter badge people, the badges

:15:08.:15:13.

start going and you get powers to help people. You draw that story

:15:13.:15:17.

and bring it to life? Yes, draw nit pencil first to iron out all the

:15:17.:15:22.

kinks and possible mistakes then go in in ink and do the inked up

:15:22.:15:26.

version and there it is. Amazing. You then do another version which

:15:26.:15:31.

is the finished print, I guess? Absolutely. And don't you look

:15:31.:15:34.

good? Thank you very much, I do, yes, you've got the muscles just

:15:35.:15:38.

right as well. You can see this coloured in on the website. You can

:15:38.:15:41.

finish the story. Here is the first section. That's the first story

:15:41.:15:45.

they've done for you, then you have got another bit which is blank and

:15:45.:15:50.

you can decide how the story finishes.

:15:50.:15:53.

Mark, John, thank you very much for coming in. It's amazing. How cool

:15:54.:16:00.

is this show today, superheroes and biscuits! Doesn't get any better.

:16:00.:16:05.

The biscuits are ready, time to take them out of the oven. They're

:16:05.:16:10.

hot. Always wear an oven glove. Decorate these ones now, they've

:16:10.:16:16.

been chilling, haven't they? Got to cool down - very important -

:16:16.:16:21.

otherwise they'll melt. Pick an animal. I've gone for a green

:16:21.:16:26.

caterpillar. We've been advertising your mini bake sale. I put up this

:16:26.:16:29.

poster over here. If you want a poster leek that, head over to the

:16:29.:16:33.

Blue Peter website, print it, fill in the details and that'll help

:16:34.:16:38.

make sure you get lots of punters to raise money for Children In Need.

:16:38.:16:42.

Beautiful. Welcome to the greatest fund-

:16:42.:16:47.

raising show on earth... Children is need is all about one thing,

:16:47.:16:50.

raising money to help thousands of children across the UK. This year

:16:50.:16:56.

we are asking you to raise money for children like these living with

:16:56.:16:59.

illnesses that affect their every day lives. For some children, that

:16:59.:17:04.

means they need to have treatment in hospital to help them get better

:17:04.:17:08.

again and one illness that involves spending a lot of time in hospital

:17:08.:17:11.

is cancer. Cancer can affect adults and children. There are lots of

:17:11.:17:14.

different types, over 200 of them. They can be difficult to understand.

:17:14.:17:20.

So here are some of the basics. human body is made up of millions

:17:20.:17:25.

of tiny cells that help to make things like blood, muscle or bone.

:17:25.:17:29.

Sometimes, cells start dividing in an uncontrolled way and lots of

:17:29.:17:33.

damaged cells are produced. This is called cancer. Some cancers affect

:17:33.:17:37.

the cells in your blood. If the cells in your blood are damaged, it

:17:37.:17:44.

means they can't fight infections, these cancers are called leukaemias

:17:44.:17:47.

and lymphomas. Then there are tumours when cells stick together

:17:47.:17:52.

and form a lump somewhere in the body.

:17:52.:17:57.

I've come to a hospital in Cambridge. This is the oncology and

:17:57.:18:01.

haematology children's ward where children who've been diagnosed with

:18:01.:18:05.

cancer come for their treatment. Sapphire is 12. She was dying

:18:05.:18:09.

kneesed with cancer just under a year ago. She's had several courses

:18:09.:18:12.

of chemotherapy, a treatment designed to kill cancer cells or

:18:12.:18:22.
:18:22.:18:22.

stop them dividing. Can you explain what it's like having treatment?

:18:22.:18:27.

just makes you sick, makes you lose your hair. Chemotherapy is designed

:18:27.:18:31.

to make you get better but you have to get worse first don't you. Is it

:18:31.:18:36.

something you get used to? don't really like getting sick and

:18:36.:18:41.

just... Don't feel like doing it sometimes.

:18:41.:18:43.

Like Sapphire, eight-year-old Charlie has been having treatment

:18:43.:18:47.

for cancer too. Nine months ago, he was diagnosed with a large tumour

:18:47.:18:52.

and it took a nine hour operation to remove it, followed by regular

:18:52.:19:00.

visits to hospital. What is it like being in hospital? OK because

:19:00.:19:04.

they've got the Xbox. Can you explain the sorts of things they

:19:04.:19:11.

have to do to make you better? do this chemotherapy that goes in

:19:11.:19:18.

there. That tries to clear it all up and, if not, they have to do an

:19:19.:19:22.

operation. To make time on the ward better for children like Charlie

:19:22.:19:26.

and Sapphire, Children In Need are funding a charity called young

:19:26.:19:31.

Young Lives who run a project called Get Creative on the Ward.

:19:31.:19:36.

The team travelled to this ward in their van and they arrive on the

:19:36.:19:39.

ward with a whole load of media gear. They give children the chance

:19:40.:19:46.

to learn how to make a ring tone, shoot a fillle, edit a photo or

:19:46.:19:53.

even record a song -- shoot a film. Charlie's been working on a song

:19:53.:20:03.
:20:03.:20:07.

with the team and today he wants to That's enough from me. Time to hand

:20:08.:20:17.
:20:18.:20:25.

There it is. Projects like this are exactly what children like Charlie

:20:25.:20:29.

need because when they're in hospital they get to do fun things

:20:29.:20:33.

as well. Charlie's not the only one making the most of the session.

:20:33.:20:39.

Sapphire is planning to shoot a magic trick starring me. They

:20:39.:20:43.

brought a laptop to the bed, I do the music. They motivated me to get

:20:43.:20:51.

out of bed so I could do more stuff. That's really cool, isn't it?

:20:51.:20:56.

one of my most favourite things to do when I'm bored.

:20:57.:21:01.

If you want to raise money for projects like Get Creative on the

:21:01.:21:07.

Ward, the good news is you can. Get out there and run sales. The money

:21:07.:21:11.

you raise will go towards helping children like Charlie and Sapphire.

:21:11.:21:19.

Come on, let's do it - let's Bake A Difference!

:21:19.:21:22.

By supporting this appeal you can make a mass you have difference to

:21:22.:21:25.

the lives of children like Charlie and Sapphire. Everything you need

:21:25.:21:30.

to know about running a successful sale can be found online. It's time

:21:30.:21:34.

to see how many items you have pledged to bake for this year's

:21:35.:21:42.

appeal. So... Drum roll... Yes. The total amount of pledges

:21:42.:21:50.

pledged by you for the Bake A Difference sale is ops ooh. 32,385,

:21:50.:21:54.

amazing! Very, very impressive. Since the start of the show, Aaron

:21:54.:21:57.

from Junior Bake Off has been in the kitchen for us. Let's see how

:21:57.:22:05.

he's getting on. Come on, you can have a biccie. Yes! I've decorated

:22:05.:22:09.
