Today, the Force is with us as we bring you the world's biggest

:00:19.:00:26.

lightsabre. And a gold badge surprise for a Star Wars legend.

:00:26.:00:36.
:00:36.:00:53.

award you pure gold Blue Peter The Force is strong with this one.

:00:53.:00:59.

Don't worry, we have not had a power cut. We are just having an

:00:59.:01:08.

epic battle. Put the Lions back on. We can call it at draw. Welcome to

:01:08.:01:15.

the show. If you are an huge fan of Star Wars, you will know that this

:01:15.:01:20.

is a lightsabre. It is a glowing power stick and the most powerful

:01:20.:01:25.

weapon in all of the galaxy. This is about one metre long but

:01:25.:01:30.

recently I went to help create the biggest lightsabre in the world.

:01:30.:01:40.
:01:40.:01:44.

There's only one place to go. The BT Tower in London. Just look

:01:44.:01:53.

at this - it is incredible. You can see the whole of London. Sober

:01:53.:01:57.

lighting designers are coming to set up some incredibly cool Kit and

:01:57.:02:02.

the whole of London will be able to see the biggest lightsabre in the

:02:02.:02:08.

world. This is to celebrate the release of the Star Wars Saga up in

:02:08.:02:14.

Blu-ray. The story started in a galaxy, far away. When it was

:02:14.:02:18.

released in 1977, no one could predict just how big the Star Wars

:02:18.:02:27.

phenomenon could become. It was a story of good against evil. There

:02:27.:02:33.

where space ships and the Force, a power for good and for bad. Not to

:02:33.:02:40.

mention a new fighting weapon - the lightsabre.

:02:40.:02:46.

Back on earth it is the day before the BT Tower's transformation for a

:02:46.:02:53.

glittering star Wars event. At 177 metre site it is normally used as a

:02:53.:02:58.

communications hub. It is going to be the perfect Handel for ad giant

:02:58.:03:05.

lightsabre. The man responsible for creating it is Johnny Miller with

:03:05.:03:10.

his team of a electricians. How will you turn but BT Tower into the

:03:10.:03:15.

biggest lightsabre in the world? You have to start with lights and

:03:15.:03:21.

we have 16 of the biggest you have probably ever seen. This is equal

:03:21.:03:29.

to about 300 lightbulbs. For what conditions do you need? We need it

:03:29.:03:39.
:03:39.:03:41.

to be dark because we wanted good air quality. So this whole stunt

:03:41.:03:45.

really depends on the lighting conditions on the day? That is

:03:45.:03:51.

correct. It is not uncommon for cloud to be sitting on top of the

:03:51.:03:56.

tower and that could be difficult. You're doing a brilliant job. How

:03:56.:04:01.

do we turn that on? He is downstairs. Before the event we

:04:01.:04:05.

have to make sure that the lightsabre actually works. We need

:04:05.:04:11.

to do a secret test at exactly the same time of night as the real

:04:11.:04:17.

switch-over tomorrow. Now you said that I could help test the tower.

:04:17.:04:24.

Here we are on the roof of the building. We are able to control

:04:24.:04:29.

the lights on the tower using this. These are at the controls. What do

:04:29.:04:39.
:04:39.:04:40.

we do? You can move your finger up to move the lights on. That is what

:04:40.:04:49.

they call cool. With these buttons you can change the colour. I note

:04:49.:04:57.

you will want one! How do we make it into a lightsabre? We have to be

:04:57.:05:07.
:05:07.:05:07.

really quick. Just a little teaser. Just press that button there.

:05:07.:05:17.
:05:17.:05:20.

here goes. I am going to make the noise. Vrrrrmmm! That is some

:05:20.:05:29.

special piece of kit. It is amazing. We're here for the big switch-on

:05:30.:05:36.

tonight. To see the world's biggest lightsabre. And I have a big

:05:36.:05:42.

surprise for one of the original cast members of Star Wars. Anthony

:05:42.:05:47.

Daniels played the lovable robot and has been in all six of the Star

:05:47.:05:56.

Wars films. Before I meet him he has a rather important job to do.

:05:56.:06:04.

It is my great pleasure to power up the biggest lightsabre in the

:06:04.:06:14.
:06:14.:06:23.

galaxy. Stand by because the Force There it is. The world's biggest

:06:23.:06:30.

lightsabre, beaming alight 600 metres high. Anthony Daniels never

:06:30.:06:34.

got to use a lightsabre in the films. I think they should make up

:06:34.:06:41.

for it. So there you go, you finally get a lightsabre. Can I

:06:41.:06:51.

show you something? I always played yield in the film and I did the

:06:51.:07:01.
:07:01.:07:03.

impressions. After six movies, is that the best you can do? Actually,

:07:03.:07:13.

it is not back. -- not bad. We have a special award on Blue Peter known

:07:13.:07:23.
:07:23.:07:25.

as the gold badge. I would like to present you with our highest

:07:25.:07:32.

accolade. We just think you are the best legend that Star Wars has ever

:07:32.:07:36.

produced. It is my pleasure to award you with your gold Blue Peter

:07:36.:07:43.

badge. I am immensely touched by that. Thank you for entertaining as

:07:43.:07:53.
:07:53.:07:53.

for all these years. I am very touched.

:07:53.:08:00.

That really made me smile. I loved that. Genuinely so excited. We had

:08:00.:08:07.

a cup of tea together! It was amazing. And turning on that huge

:08:07.:08:12.

lightsabre! If you love Star Wars then we want to hear from you. E-

:08:12.:08:18.

mail us now at [email protected] We want to know your favourite

:08:18.:08:24.

thing about Star Wars. Send us that e-mail and you could see that your

:08:24.:08:28.

name on the television. If you are watching stayed tuned because we

:08:28.:08:35.

have a ferocious prehistoric visitor right here in this studio.

:08:35.:08:40.

Brace yourselves for that. This time last week we launched the Blue

:08:40.:08:45.

Peter appeal for this year. If you get involved you have the chance to

:08:45.:08:50.

really change children's lives. All details are coming up later. But

:08:50.:08:55.

for now, this is the charity we're hoping you will support - children

:08:55.:09:05.
:09:05.:09:07.

in Need. -- Children in Need. Welcome to the greatest fund-

:09:07.:09:13.

raising show on air. Children in Need is all about one thing -

:09:13.:09:18.

raising money to help vulnerable children in the UK. The public

:09:18.:09:21.

raised money and send it into Children in Need and they then give

:09:21.:09:26.

that money to hundreds of charities all over the country. Since the

:09:26.:09:31.

appeal began a staggering �600 million has been raised by the

:09:31.:09:39.

public for good causes. Each year fund raising builds up to one fund-

:09:39.:09:48.

raising event in November - Children in Need at night.

:09:48.:09:56.

There are countless celebrities. Even BBC newsreaders attempt to get

:09:56.:10:02.

people at home to give generously to good causes. Last year our own

:10:02.:10:10.

Helen got stuck in. Not bad, Helen! Each year the money goes to help

:10:10.:10:18.

thousands of children like these. And it is not just celebrities who

:10:18.:10:23.

get stuck in that with the fund raising. People up and down the

:10:23.:10:30.

country raise money in all sorts of ways. And that is where you come in.

:10:30.:10:35.

For this year's appeal will want you to raise money for Children in

:10:35.:10:40.

Need. We want you to help raise more money than ever. You really

:10:40.:10:46.

will make a difference. Barney is right, if you get

:10:46.:10:51.

involved you will make a difference. This year we're asking you to "bake

:10:51.:10:56.

a difference". We want you to hold at bake sale. All we need to do is

:10:56.:11:03.

make some cakes, sausage rolls, what ever you can turn your hand to

:11:03.:11:08.

and self. You need to find somewhere to sell your goods,

:11:08.:11:13.

perhaps your school or youth club. There are plenty of hungry people

:11:13.:11:23.
:11:23.:11:24.

who will buy your goods. Do you know any hungry people? My family!

:11:24.:11:31.

Everything you need to know he's on our website. There are different

:11:31.:11:39.

sections to have a look at. The first is our financial guru, Saira

:11:39.:11:47.

Khan. She will tell you how to run a successful bake sale. And if

:11:47.:11:54.

you're stuck for inspiration, celebrities are getting on board.

:11:55.:12:04.

This is a recipe from Alesha Dixon. And of course this one is the very

:12:04.:12:09.

important page, once you have raised Germany this page will tell

:12:09.:12:14.

you how to pay it in. The money can't really make a difference to

:12:14.:12:23.

children's lives, children like Joy. I am joined, I intend years old and

:12:23.:12:33.

I love coming to my local beach. -- I am joined. I am 10 years old.

:12:33.:12:37.

sometimes she is not able to do these things because she has a

:12:37.:12:42.

condition called cystic fibrosis. It means that basic functions like

:12:42.:12:50.

breeding can be a real problem. Having this condition makes me feel

:12:50.:13:00.
:13:00.:13:02.

sick and sometimes be sick. I cough stuff up and it makes me feel tired.

:13:02.:13:07.

I am sad because my friends do not have it. To stop herself getting

:13:07.:13:11.

serious infections she has to take a lot of medicine at every day.

:13:11.:13:16.

These have to be fed through a tube on her stomach because she is not

:13:16.:13:24.

able to swallow them without them going down the wrong way. Cystic

:13:24.:13:27.

fibrosis clogs up the lungs are making it difficult for her to

:13:27.:13:35.

breathe. She needs regular visits to hospital. I just came out of

:13:35.:13:42.

hospital after as serious infection. I could not sleep. All the babies

:13:42.:13:52.
:13:52.:13:55.

To help clear her lungs of the mucus, Joy has to do breathing

:13:55.:14:00.

exercises like this three times a day. It really is hard work for her.

:14:00.:14:06.

Are you ready for bed? At bedtime Joy has to have special milk to

:14:06.:14:10.

make sure she is getting enough goodness to grow and keep healthy.

:14:10.:14:15.

Milk and water are the only drinks she has been allowed to have. The

:14:15.:14:17.

drinks have to be fed through a tube.

:14:17.:14:22.

Life can be really tiring for Joy and sometimes she just needs a

:14:22.:14:26.

break, but there is help. Thanks to a charity called the Butterfly

:14:26.:14:32.

Trust which is supported by knead. They fund a befriender for Joy to

:14:32.:14:42.

talk to or have fun with so she can take her mind off heifer illness.

:14:42.:14:50.

-- off her illness. Emma is here. It can be popping to

:14:50.:14:59.

the shops or the Zoo or whatever Joy wants to do.

:14:59.:15:03.

Joy is in there now with her friend Emma. She has no idea that I'm here.

:15:03.:15:06.

I thought I might just give her a little surprise.

:15:06.:15:12.

Hello. Is that Joy? It's Barney from Blue

:15:12.:15:18.

Peter. Have you seen the rare northern monkey?

:15:18.:15:23.

He is very scaredy. Hello. There is no northern monkey,

:15:23.:15:27.

I made that up, although my mum thinks I am a bit!

:15:27.:15:32.

Shall we go for a chat? Yeah. If there is one thing you could

:15:32.:15:37.

change, one thing you could sort of make happen, what would it be?

:15:37.:15:41.

don't have this cough because I've got a cough.

:15:41.:15:42.

Like that. Yes.

:15:42.:15:47.

It is not a normal cough, is it, it is because you've got something on

:15:47.:15:51.

your lungs as well. Do you think your friends understand has like to

:15:51.:15:55.

be you? Do you think they know? Tell me the good things about

:15:55.:16:00.

having Emma in your life? We paint together and we watch movies

:16:00.:16:06.

together. Like chick flicks? Where someone

:16:06.:16:09.

falls over at the beginning and they kiss at the end? I like

:16:09.:16:18.

talking to her. It makes my mind off it.

:16:18.:16:27.

Joy has been living with the symptoms of ify bro sis -- cystic

:16:27.:16:34.

fibrosis since she was a baby. Having someone like Emma to help

:16:34.:16:41.

and support her makes a big Get involved! Support this appeal

:16:41.:16:46.

and Bake a Difference. There is no time to lose. Come on, off your

:16:46.:16:51.

sofas and lets start running the bake sales. We want more sales. We

:16:51.:16:55.

want you to tell us what you are planning to bake and how many items

:16:55.:17:01.

you are planning to bake so we can add it to our totaliser which looks

:17:01.:17:06.

like this. Right, let us know how many things

:17:07.:17:11.

you are plan to go bake so we can put them on there and make the

:17:11.:17:14.

totaliser fill the screen. We launched this appeal a week ago,

:17:14.:17:19.

but loads of you have been in touch promising to bake things. Lauren

:17:19.:17:26.

and Hannah are going to bake 72 cakes or biscuits and sell them at

:17:26.:17:29.

their dad's work. That's a good idea.

:17:29.:17:33.

The more people, the more items, the more money.

:17:33.:17:37.

Matthew says, "What a great appeal. I have planned to make 50 items

:17:37.:17:44.

with my friends. He is going to split it up 25 cookies and 5 cup

:17:44.:17:53.

cakes -- 25 cup cakes.". Le Lisa and Heather and going to make 18

:17:53.:17:59.

fairy cakes. 20 shortbread and ten plain and ten

:17:59.:18:04.

coated in chocolate and 18 corn flake cakes. They get the biggest

:18:04.:18:07.

cheer. All of those pledges are going to

:18:07.:18:14.

be added to the totaliser, but Barney you have a better calculator.

:18:14.:18:20.

How many pledges so far? The amount of pledges we have so far our our

:18:20.:18:23.

Blue Peter appeal, Bake a Difference is...

:18:23.:18:30.

Oh, it is 1576. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

:18:30.:18:33.

That's in a week! That was a week ago we announced

:18:33.:18:36.

that and that's how many we got in. Thank you for getting involved. We

:18:36.:18:44.

Let us know how many items you plan to bake and you never know we might

:18:44.:18:54.
:18:54.:18:56.

Coming soon to Blue Peter, some of Liverpool's players cook up chaos

:18:56.:19:03.

for the appeal. Ed Sheeran will be in the studio.

:19:03.:19:08.

Plus I learned some skills for a red carpet premier.

:19:08.:19:13.

. As you can see there is more to look forward and more to come on

:19:13.:19:20.

Blue Peter. Now, I bet you think the T-rex was the big biggest and

:19:20.:19:25.

most scariest dinosaur on the planet. Well, if you were watching

:19:25.:19:28.

dinosaur files you will know that is wrong. Because when it comes to

:19:28.:19:38.

T-rex and this guy, the T rection is a wimp -- the T-rex is a wimp!

:19:38.:19:48.
:19:48.:19:48.

Spinosaurus, 70 meters, the biggest killer ever to walk the Earth. An

:19:48.:19:58.
:19:58.:20:10.

11 tonne dinosaur. And here he is, everybody, here is

:20:10.:20:15.

the Spinosaurus. This guy is a model. It is one fifth to scale

:20:15.:20:17.

which means the real thing would have been five times bigger than

:20:17.:20:21.

this. Just to give you an idea of how big that is, if he was real

:20:21.:20:26.

size and I was real size, that's how big I would be in comparison. I

:20:26.:20:33.

would be just as tall as one of the vertebra on his spine. Barney the

:20:33.:20:37.

dog would be able to spit on the Spinosaurus's head. That's one dog

:20:37.:20:41.

gone in one big munch. If you look at the floor, you will see Helen is

:20:41.:20:46.

as tall as the Spinosaurus's foot from toe to ankle. It is fair to

:20:46.:20:50.

say that this monster is without a doubt the biggest and scariest

:20:50.:20:55.

dinosaur ever to walk planet earth. I can't believe you suggested that

:20:56.:20:59.

Spinosaurus could eat this creature!

:20:59.:21:04.

I mean, he is a beast. The Spinosaurus is seriously old though.

:21:04.:21:10.

It lived 30 million years before the T-rex and it was found in North

:21:10.:21:14.

Africa, even though North Africa is mostly desert, the Spinosaurus

:21:14.:21:18.

liked to live in wet and soggy areas, Barney.

:21:18.:21:22.

I know some more facts. We have written them down. He is a hunting

:21:22.:21:26.

machine. He would look for his prey on land and water. I have to read

:21:26.:21:32.

off a card because it is one of the weirdest names I heard. His

:21:32.:21:39.

favourite food was onchopristis. That's a giant swordfish. This guy

:21:39.:21:45.

was wiped out because when sea levels rose, it wiped out his food

:21:45.:21:48.

sources. I have another one for you. The

:21:48.:21:52.

first bones weren't found until 1912 in Egypt.

:21:52.:21:55.

Wow. No one ever found a full skeleton

:21:55.:21:59.

that's probably because they lived near the sea so the skeleton would

:21:59.:22:03.

have been washed away and palaeontologists had to find the

:22:03.:22:07.

different bones and put them together like a big jigsaw.

:22:07.:22:12.

That's scary, isn't it? He was a big boy and he is on tour. He is

:22:12.:22:16.

going to be near a town near you. If you want to find out where he is,

:22:16.:22:20.

go to the website and you can find out the details there when you

:22:20.:22:24.

click on the dinosaur. We asked you if you liked Star Wars

:22:24.:22:28.

and loads of you have been in touch to let us know what you think about

:22:28.:22:31.

Star Wars. Who you liked and what you liked about it.

:22:31.:22:36.

That's one of the coolest things I had to do. Anthony Daniels will be

:22:36.:22:43.

my favourite thing about Star Wars. Thank you, celebrity hand.

:22:44.:22:46.

If you are watching live on BBC One and that proves it. You are

:22:46.:22:54.

watching. My character is Hands Solar.

:22:54.:23:03.

James says the best thing is the ships and the planets.

:23:03.:23:09.

My favourite is the Death Star. Tune in tomorrow if you like

:23:09.:23:12.

gadgets and behind the scenes access and if you like dancing.

:23:12.:23:18.

Tomorrow, I get an exclusive look behind the scenes at the new Rowan

:23:18.:23:23.

Atkinson film. I get to try out a new gadget as well.

:23:23.:23:28.

Rizzle Kicks will be in the studio. They will be performing their new

:23:28.:23:31.

single. This is one of the catchiest tunes I ever heard and

:23:31.:23:34.

one you will be singing all day. You will be singing and dancing.

:23:34.:23:38.

They dance around like this! Let's not do it right now because

:23:38.:23:42.

it looks silly. You love to do that crazy dance.

:23:42.:23:47.

They're cool. If you want to see it, same time, same place tomorrow.

:23:47.:23:51.

you later. This year I'm supporting Blue

:23:51.:23:54.
