Coming up on today's live Blue Peter...

6:49:046:49:07

We reveal an ingenious memory technique

6:49:076:49:09

that could help you remember whatever you want.

6:49:096:49:11

Do you fancy missing school and travelling the world?

6:49:116:49:14

They are just some of the perks that come with being a teenage pop star

6:49:146:49:18

on tour, according to American boy band, Mindless Behaviour.

6:49:186:49:21

We're from the US and now we're in London, so it's really fun.

6:49:216:49:24

Plus, he is preparing to fight for the title of number one

6:49:246:49:27

jet skier in the world.

6:49:276:49:28

Yes, daredevil Jack Moule is going to be showcasing

6:49:286:49:31

some of his secret weapon stunts right here later on.

6:49:316:49:33

You do not want to miss it.

6:49:336:49:35

CHEERING & APPLAUSE

6:49:516:49:54

Hello! That is the sound of a start of a show, isn't it?

6:49:546:49:57

You are watching Blue Peter.

6:49:576:49:59

We are live and jam-packed. Yes, we are full of jam.

6:49:596:50:01

Lots of things for you to see today, including this - this guy's amazing.

6:50:016:50:05

He is going to show you some adrenalin-fuelled super moves

6:50:056:50:09

and he is called Jack Moule. We love him. Amazing.

6:50:096:50:11

He is number two in the world. But he is here to get your blood pumping

6:50:116:50:15

before teatime. I cannot wait.

6:50:156:50:17

I can't wait either, because we get to ask you a question.

6:50:176:50:20

We are live. This is really happening right now

6:50:206:50:22

and it is interactive. Here is the question...

6:50:226:50:24

It does not have to be a sport. It can be anything you like.

6:50:276:50:30

Only e-mail us if you are watching us on a Thursday, please.

6:50:316:50:35

Now, very soon, Barney and I are leaving the UK for a few days.

6:50:376:50:41

We are heading on a week-long tour of the two Eastern European

6:50:416:50:45

countries hosting the European Championships.

6:50:456:50:48

Yep, Euro 2012 will be taking place in the Ukraine and Poland.

6:50:486:50:52

But we wanted to give you the inside story on some of the unusual

6:50:526:50:56

sights and crazy cultures of the two countries.

6:50:566:50:58

Neither myself or Helen speak Polish, but we thought

6:50:586:51:01

it would be a good idea if one of us knew the basics before we went.

6:51:016:51:04

So, desperate times called for desperate measures.

6:51:046:51:08

Have you ever wished you could learn everything,

6:51:086:51:11

so that you could pass your exams with flying colours?

6:51:116:51:13

Maybe you'd like to know all there is to know about

6:51:136:51:15

your favourite pop group,

6:51:156:51:17

to prove that you are their biggest super-fan.

6:51:176:51:19

Well, today, I am learning to speak Polish -

6:51:196:51:22

just the basics, I only have a few hours to do this -

6:51:226:51:24

by tricking my brain into retaining the information,

6:51:246:51:26

using some very clever techniques that you can use at school.

6:51:266:51:29

And this guy is going to help me.

6:51:296:51:31

Ed Cooke is a grandmaster of memory,

6:51:316:51:33

who claims he can memorise a whole pack of cards in 45 seconds.

6:51:336:51:37

He uses a memorising technique called mems,

6:51:376:51:40

but can it really help me to learn basic Polish?

6:51:406:51:43

Let us start off with the obvious question - what is a mem?

6:51:436:51:46

So, a mem is anything which makes learning fun and interesting.

6:51:466:51:51

Let us say you are trying to learn the German word for "poison",

6:51:516:51:54

which is "gift", right?

6:51:546:51:56

Now, that may get you a bit confused, but it is also an opportunity.

6:51:566:52:00

So you say, imagine your sister giving you a gift of some poison.

6:52:006:52:04

-Then you can't really forget that the German word for poison is gift.

-Sure.

6:52:046:52:08

So, for me to learn ten words - ten Polish words -

6:52:086:52:10

I would need to know ten mems?

6:52:106:52:12

Mems help you get your head round the word,

6:52:126:52:14

so one mem for each word - a nice image that will help you learn it.

6:52:146:52:18

'There are three different stages to the mems process

6:52:186:52:21

'and now Ed is going to run them through with me...'

6:52:216:52:24

Here is an easy one.

6:52:286:52:29

Shoes. The word for shoes in Polish is "buty".

6:52:296:52:32

So, here we have got some buty-ful shoes.

6:52:326:52:37

'So, when I want to think of the Polish word for shoes,

6:52:376:52:40

'all I have to do is remember this picture.

6:52:406:52:43

'OK, I think I have got that. Time for stage two...'

6:52:436:52:47

What you want to do is combine the first stage, which is bright imagery,

6:52:496:52:53

something to imagine, something which is fun and interesting, with a lot

6:52:536:52:57

of repetition. That will really nail something into your brain.

6:52:576:53:00

'Easy, so all I have to do is repeat myself.

6:53:006:53:03

'Buty - shoes, buty - shoes, buty - shoes.

6:53:036:53:06

'OK, repetition nailed, it is time for the final stage,

6:53:066:53:09

'testing, also known as recalling.'

6:53:096:53:12

What I'll ask you to do is a little bit of physical exercise.

6:53:126:53:15

Just give me five press-us. You look like a strong man.

6:53:156:53:19

'Hang on, what has exercise got to do with recalling, please?'

6:53:196:53:23

OK, great! So I have got one question for you -

6:53:236:53:26

-do you feel stronger now?

-I see where you're going. Yeah, I do.

6:53:266:53:30

It is exactly the same with your brain. Each memory is like a muscle.

6:53:306:53:35

Every time you produce that memory, you are strengthening the muscle.

6:53:356:53:39

Testing is all about strengthening the memories you have.

6:53:396:53:44

So taking those three stages you've just talked me through -

6:53:446:53:46

the mems - the images - repetition - saying it over and over -

6:53:466:53:50

and then recalling - strengthening what you've learned -

6:53:506:53:54

-we're now going to go away and learn Polish.

-Awesome.

6:53:546:53:58

'So, I'm going to try and remember ten common Polish words

6:54:006:54:04

'that will be useful for my and Helen's Eastern European road trip.'

6:54:046:54:06

'Basics first - how would I remember the Polish word for "yes"?'

6:54:066:54:11

We have a little Polish guy here and he has just invented a tack.

6:54:116:54:14

He's like, "Yes!" Tack!

6:54:146:54:16

So whenever I think about the word "yes", I am thinking

6:54:166:54:18

about the guy, "Yes, I've invented the tack!"

6:54:186:54:21

'Over the next half an hour, I use Ed's mems technique

6:54:216:54:25

'to try and learn ten basic Polish words.

6:54:256:54:28

'So I'm thinking of, and drawing, an image,

6:54:286:54:32

'then repeating it and testing it with Ed.'

6:54:326:54:34

-What does prosze make you think of?

-Prosze. Protege...project...

6:54:346:54:41

'This is really clever and I can see it working.

6:54:416:54:44

Don't forget, you can always use this to help you with your exams.

6:54:446:54:48

Study over, Ed is now going to test me on five out of the ten words.'

6:54:506:54:54

-If I ask you, do you speak Polish, in Polish you would say..?

-Tak.

6:54:546:55:00

Let's imagine you think the Polish man's goods are cheap,

6:55:006:55:03

-what do you call them?

-Tani.

6:55:036:55:06

-Now you want to say "goodbye".

-Goodbye. Right. Wave... Oh, yeah...

6:55:066:55:12

Erm... It's the doe-flower. It's a doe with zinnia.

6:55:126:55:17

-Do widzenia.

-OK, perfect.

6:55:176:55:20

How about, erm, please?

6:55:206:55:22

-Er, it's the kid with the... Prosze. Prosze.

-Very good.

6:55:226:55:27

-Now you want to say "thank you".

-So I say, dziekuje.

6:55:276:55:33

Very good, excellent.

6:55:336:55:34

OK, that is absolutely superb - five out of five on the test.

6:55:346:55:38

'I'm well chuffed with that result, but remembering them short term

6:55:386:55:42

'is a different to recalling them days later.

6:55:426:55:44

'So Ed has a challenge for me.'

6:55:446:55:47

Go home, use this technique, use these images, the repetition

6:55:476:55:53

and this self-testing to learn 40 further words.

6:55:536:55:57

How do you say "bring it on" in Polish?!

6:55:576:55:59

Here is one I learnt earlier.

6:55:596:56:03

And Ed is in the studio to give me that test. Great to see you.

6:56:036:56:06

Great to see you. How has the homework been going?

6:56:066:56:09

I think it went OK. I used them mems and repeated them.

6:56:096:56:12

-I have definitely got 30 out of the 50.

-OK.

6:56:126:56:15

Oh, he's confident.

6:56:156:56:16

Just remind us of the techniques you hope Barney will use.

6:56:166:56:19

The important things are imagery, repetition and testing yourself.

6:56:196:56:22

OK, it is time, Barney, to see if you know your Polish.

6:56:226:56:28

-Stop making it so dramatic.

-The music is making it dramatic.

6:56:286:56:32

OK, Barney is ready. Ed, can you give him his first word, please?

6:56:326:56:37

You learned 50 words. I've taken ten difficult ones out of the list.

6:56:376:56:40

The first word is, expensive. What is Polish for "expensive"?

6:56:406:56:45

The Polish word for expensive. Now this is to do with

6:56:456:56:48

a football with a dollar sign in it.

6:56:486:56:50

It refers to a footballer known as Drogba. He is quite expensive.

6:56:506:56:53

The Polish word for expensive is "drogi".

6:56:536:56:55

Ooh, he is correct!

6:56:576:56:59

Well done, Barney. One out of one.

6:56:596:57:01

Next up, we have got "thank you". How do you say "thank you"?

6:57:016:57:04

This is the couple in a restaurant and one of them asks for the cheque

6:57:046:57:07

and when he gets it, he goes, "Ooh, yeah!" His missus says, "thank you."

6:57:076:57:11

So it's "dziekuje".

6:57:116:57:13

Oh, correct!

6:57:136:57:14

-Barney, I am impressed! Ed, next.

-What is Polish for "pardon"?

6:57:146:57:20

Yes, this is a very random mem that I made up while driving home.

6:57:226:57:26

It is a guy sucking ham and someone going, "You did what? Pardon?"

6:57:266:57:32

-So it is "stucham".

-I am concerned about the way your mind works,

6:57:326:57:36

but I am impressed with your memory,. Well done, Barney.

6:57:366:57:39

Next up, how do you say "today"?

6:57:396:57:40

"Gee, you look shy today" is the phrase I learnt for this.

6:57:406:57:44

It is "dzisiaj".

6:57:446:57:45

-Oh, very good!

-Good stuff. Next up is "bath".

6:57:486:57:51

Think.

6:57:546:57:56

This is "wanna".

6:57:566:57:58

-Ooh! Wasn't sure there!

-You got it right!

6:58:016:58:04

Another random one - table. How do you say "table"?

6:58:046:58:06

Table is really easy. You stow things under it.

6:58:066:58:08

The Polish word for table is "stot".

6:58:086:58:12

-Correct, very impressive. Six out of six, so far.

-What's car?

6:58:126:58:17

Car. I think of my brother in the summer, chewing gum.

6:58:176:58:22

He used to get told off by my mum. And his name is Sam.

6:58:226:58:26

A slang word for chewing gum is chud. He's in the car, in summer,

6:58:266:58:30

it's "samachod".

6:58:306:58:31

-Very impressive.

-OK, three to go. Map? What's map?

6:58:336:58:36

-Map's quite easy. It's just "mapa".

-And how about "plane"?

6:58:366:58:41

Mapa is correct! Moving on to plane.

6:58:416:58:44

My dad's favourite comedy group when I was younger

6:58:446:58:46

were Monty Python's Flying Circus.

6:58:466:58:48

There is a musical based on their life called Spamalot.

6:58:486:58:51

I imagined them being in a plane on tour. Samolot is the word for plane.

6:58:516:58:56

I just have to applaud! One more!

6:58:586:59:00

-Cat is your last one.

-Cat is my favourite word,

6:59:006:59:03

because it is very simple, the same amount of letters.

6:59:036:59:06

I think about a baby cat in a cot. because the Polish word is "kot".

6:59:066:59:10

I am impressed!

6:59:116:59:13

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

6:59:136:59:15

-Take a bow!

-Thank you!

6:59:156:59:17

-You're not secretly Polish, are you?!

-No! Sorry, nie.

6:59:176:59:21

-Missed a trick, didn't I?

-Thank you Ed. Fantastic technique.

6:59:216:59:24

If you have got an exam coming up, or maybe you are in play and need to

6:59:246:59:26

learn some lines, that is a good a technique that you could use.

6:59:266:59:30

But the question is, Barney,

6:59:306:59:31

-can you remember what else is on the programme today?

-I'll do me best!

6:59:316:59:37

Still to come on today's show...

6:59:376:59:39

I get the inside story on what it is really like being

6:59:396:59:43

a teenage pop star on tour from hot US boy band, Mindless Behaviour.

6:59:436:59:47

And champion jet skier Jack Moule reveals the secret weapon stunt

6:59:476:59:52

that he hopes will win him the title of number one in the world.

6:59:526:59:56

-He is amazing.

-He is. Now, one guy who is also very amazing -

6:59:567:00:00

or we think so - is Barney the dog. Barney. He can do the odd trick.

7:00:007:00:05

-High five! High five!

-Yeah! Good boy, good boy!

-Roll over.

7:00:057:00:11

-Roll over, dude.

-Sit still!

7:00:117:00:15

We are underselling him, because Barney can do magic. Watch this.

7:00:157:00:19

He will now make this biscuit disappear.

7:00:197:00:22

DRUM ROLL

7:00:227:00:26

-Da-da!

-Nearly!

7:00:267:00:28

All right, he might not be the cleverest pooch in the pack,

7:00:287:00:34

but we love him and his job is just to be our friend

7:00:347:00:37

-and I think he does it pretty well.

-He does. He's the best friend.

7:00:377:00:40

Some dogs have very important jobs and without them

7:00:407:00:43

their owners' lives would not be the same.

7:00:437:00:45

Guide dogs for children who are blind have been around for a while,

7:00:457:00:48

but they now train special dogs

7:00:487:00:50

to help children with hearing difficulties.

7:00:507:00:52

Here is the story of one girl and her amazing pooch.

7:00:527:00:57

I'm Poppy and this is Maddie. and this is Being Us.

7:01:007:01:04

11-year-old Poppy has had severe hearing loss since she was born.

7:01:047:01:08

As well as being her lovable pet, Maddie is also her hearing dog.

7:01:087:01:12

ALARM BEEPS

7:01:127:01:14

'Maddie helps me hear things all day long,

7:01:147:01:17

'starting with my morning alarm clock.'

7:01:177:01:18

Morning, Mads.

7:01:187:01:20

Maddie has lived with Poppy's family for over two years.

7:01:207:01:23

Morning. Morning, Maddie.

7:01:237:01:28

'Maddie does loads for me. As well as letting me know

7:01:287:01:31

'when my mum is calling for me to come downstairs.'

7:01:317:01:35

Maddie! Fetch Poppy!

7:01:357:01:38

'With the right training, hearing dogs can act

7:01:387:01:40

'as the ears for deaf children.'

7:01:407:01:43

What a day!

7:01:437:01:44

Maddie helps me hear things all day long.

7:01:447:01:46

Maddie does loads for me.

7:01:527:01:54

As well as telling me to come downstairs, she also alerts me

7:01:547:01:57

to any other sounds in the house.

7:01:577:01:59

'If Maddie hears an alarm, she tells Poppy there is a problem.

7:01:597:02:03

ALARM BEEPS

7:02:037:02:05

What is it? What is it?

7:02:057:02:07

If it is dangerous, she lies flat on the floor.

7:02:077:02:11

It's OK, Poppy, it's just the smoke from the bacon.

7:02:117:02:13

'Maddie only helps out at home with the family, she also listens out,

7:02:167:02:21

'to make sure nothing happens to me in my daily routine.'

7:02:217:02:25

As Poppy is 11, she does not walk anywhere on her own but just having

7:02:257:02:31

Maddie by her side helps build her confidence when she's out and about.

7:02:317:02:34

When she is a grown-up, Poppy will get another hearing dog,

7:02:347:02:38

that will help her be completely independent.

7:02:387:02:41

Yargh!

7:02:417:02:43

'I have been doing karate for a while and I love it. It keeps me active.

7:02:447:02:49

And wherever Poppy goes, so does her Maddie.

7:02:497:02:53

Me and Poppy are best friends. I've known Poppy since she was two.

7:02:557:02:59

Since she's got Maddie, she has really grown in confidence.

7:02:597:03:02

We play with Maddie together.

7:03:027:03:04

'Now that karate is over, I have to do some homework.'

7:03:097:03:12

Before I get started, you sent in a few questions.

7:03:147:03:18

Tremendously.

7:03:257:03:26

I used to struggle crossing the roads,

7:03:267:03:29

I had trouble sleeping at night.

7:03:297:03:32

But now she really comforts me.

7:03:327:03:35

Yes, Maddie does go everywhere with me,

7:03:437:03:44

but she is not naughty, because she has been specially trained not to be.

7:03:447:03:48

Got to go now, thanks for hanging with us.

7:03:487:03:51

I'm Poppy, this is Maddie. And this is Being Us.

7:03:517:03:54

That dog is so impressive!

7:03:597:04:02

If there was bacon around, Barney would just eat it.

7:04:027:04:04

Oh, yeah, he knows what he wants.

7:04:047:04:06

In a few minutes, we'll head outside to see Jack Moule

7:04:067:04:08

show off his amazing Jet Ski skills.

7:04:087:04:11

But before that, we asked you...

7:04:117:04:14

Loads of you have been in touch.

7:04:187:04:20

Green Great Whales says "I would be number one at climbing trees

7:04:437:04:48

7:05:207:05:23

We do love to hear from you.

7:05:237:05:25

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be a pop star,

7:05:257:05:29

touring the world?

7:05:297:05:30

That is what happened to a new American boy band -

7:05:307:05:33

their dream became reality.

7:05:337:05:35

They are fresh off their tour with Nicole Scherzinger,

7:05:357:05:38

and in a couple of weeks they are releasing their latest single.

7:05:387:05:42

It was a really nice interview, I even got free biscuits,

7:05:427:05:45

Let's go and meet Mindless Behavior.

7:05:457:05:47

I'm about to tell you that.

7:05:477:05:49

I am on my way to meet the hottest thing to explode

7:05:497:05:52

out of the American music scene. They're hip, cool and all under 16.

7:05:527:05:57

I'm here to find that what it's like to be a teenager on tour

7:05:577:06:01

with Mindless Behavior.

7:06:017:06:02

# Girls talkin' bout

7:06:027:06:04

# I got them girls talkin' bout

7:06:047:06:06

# I got them girls talkin' bout

7:06:067:06:07

# I got them girls Girls, girls, girls... #

7:06:077:06:11

Mindless Behavior are made up of 15-year-old Ray Ray

7:06:117:06:15

and 14-year-olds Roc Royal, Princeton and Prodigy.

7:06:157:06:19

They have been a band for four years

7:06:197:06:21

and have already toured with Justin Bieber,

7:06:217:06:23

Jason Derulo and Nicole Scherzinger.

7:06:237:06:25

We love you, Mindless!

7:06:257:06:28

The UK girls just can't get enough of them.

7:06:287:06:30

SCREAMING

7:06:307:06:32

Thanks for inviting us down to speak to you. Let's start with the intros.

7:06:347:06:39

-What's up, y'all? It's Roc Royal.

-It is your boy Ray Ray.

7:06:397:06:43

-Yours truly, Princeton.

-Hey, it's Prodigy and we are...

7:06:437:06:46

ALL: Mindless Behavior.

7:06:467:06:49

A fine example there that practice makes perfect.

7:06:497:06:51

You are fresh off your tour with Nicole Scherzinger,

7:06:517:06:54

but my main focus is about you being teenagers.

7:06:547:06:57

When I was a teenager, I had to be out,

7:06:577:06:59

I was playing with friends and I was on the computer,

7:06:597:07:01

but you're on tour. How do you find time to be a normal teenager?

7:07:017:07:05

We do a lot of stuff. It's good for us, cos we get to experience

7:07:057:07:09

-a lot of things like food...

-Travelling.

7:07:097:07:12

We're from the US and now we're in London, so it's really fun.

7:07:127:07:15

Once in a while we go home to our house, for vacation time.

7:07:157:07:20

That's our time to just chill and be normal kids for a while.

7:07:207:07:23

# Get me on a flight I gotta see her

7:07:237:07:26

# Travel all across the world just to meet her... #

7:07:267:07:29

-When you're away, what do you miss?

-I miss a lot of things.

7:07:297:07:32

I just miss friends, family.

7:07:327:07:34

Home-cooked meals.

7:07:347:07:36

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

7:07:367:07:38

Do you REALLY miss your parents?

7:07:387:07:40

They tell you what to do when you're at home.

7:07:407:07:42

When you're away, you can play away a bit.

7:07:427:07:45

When I was at home, I wanted to get away. Now that I am away, it's fun.

7:07:457:07:50

As their popularity grows, so does their bursting schedule.

7:07:527:07:56

I'm curious how they fit in everyday life.

7:07:567:08:00

-When do you do your schoolwork?

-In our schedule,

7:08:007:08:02

our teacher puts where he wants to do work with us,

7:08:027:08:06

whether it's 3am

7:08:067:08:08

or 3pm, it's whenever he can fit it in.

7:08:087:08:11

We do homework in our hotel rooms or in the lobby, something like that.

7:08:117:08:16

SCREAMING

7:08:167:08:18

Even though they're fairly new to the UK music scene,

7:08:187:08:20

they already have an amazing fanbase.

7:08:207:08:22

CROWD: # I gotta see her

7:08:227:08:25

# Travel all across the world just to meet her...#

7:08:257:08:28

So when we asked you to quiz Mindless Behavior,

7:08:287:08:30

the website went bonkers with questions. Here are a few.

7:08:307:08:35

You don't come across as mindless -

7:08:397:08:41

you come across as educated and intelligent.

7:08:417:08:43

A lot of people think it is mindless,

7:08:437:08:45

but it is just being mindless in the heart, being yourself

7:08:457:08:49

and not caring what others think.

7:08:497:08:51

I love these questions.

7:08:517:08:52

You know what?

7:09:007:09:01

Instead of buying an alarm system in your house,

7:09:017:09:05

have my bird be like, "Stranger in the house!

7:09:057:09:09

"Stranger in the house!"

7:09:097:09:11

You have thought about this!

7:09:117:09:14

I'd do the same thing, but mine would be like,

7:09:147:09:17

"Eh-eh, problems!

7:09:177:09:20

"Caw! Eh-eh, problems!"

7:09:207:09:23

Love it.

7:09:237:09:25

To turn into different people. That would be really cool.

7:09:337:09:36

Who would you turn into? The President?

7:09:367:09:39

What if we could change to have the lifestyle?

7:09:397:09:42

It's been a pleasure.

7:09:447:09:45

Thanks for your time and answering our questions.

7:09:457:09:49

It would be ridiculous to leave here without hearing you perform.

7:09:497:09:53

As part of your performances, you do a cappella - without instruments.

7:09:537:09:56

It takes some doing and sounds impressive, so...

7:09:567:09:58

would you please perform for us?

7:09:587:09:59

# Aye, shawty, what's your name? What's your number?

7:09:597:10:05

# You heard about my age Well, forget that number

7:10:057:10:09

# I can put the thrill in your life # I can make your dreams come to life

7:10:097:10:14

# I hear you talking and, girl I know what you like

7:10:147:10:19

# Girls, girls, girls Talkin' about me every day

7:10:197:10:23

-# Cos I walk with a bop

-And I got that swag to match my Js

7:10:237:10:27

-# Baby, like

-Eh, eh, eh

7:10:277:10:29

-# Baby, meet me round by way

-Baby

7:10:297:10:31

# All the ladies love me, love me

7:10:317:10:33

# Steady talkin' about me. #

7:10:337:10:35

Genius. Mindless Behavior, everybody.

7:10:357:10:39

-Thank you.

-Brilliant.

7:10:397:10:40

They are just so cool! I want to be them, but I am so not.

7:10:407:10:46

As pop stars, they no doubt chase number ones.

7:10:467:10:49

One guy also after that number one slot in the world

7:10:497:10:52

is 17-year-old pro Jet Skier Jack Moule, who is outside in the canal,

7:10:527:10:56

waiting to perform a choreographed routine

7:10:567:10:59

he has set up especially for you guys.

7:10:597:11:02

It's pretty daring.

7:11:027:11:04

Before we look at that, let's remind ourselves

7:11:047:11:06

of when I met him a few years ago.

7:11:067:11:08

He was just 14 and keen to teach me a few moves.

7:11:087:11:11

You have got a bit of a challenge for me.

7:11:117:11:13

In one day I'm going to teach you how to do

7:11:137:11:15

a Jet Ski freestyle trick called a bulldog.

7:11:157:11:17

I have never been anywhere near a Jet Ski! Can I do this?

7:11:177:11:21

-Of course you can. Let's get your gear.

-OK.

7:11:217:11:24

Before I could get started, he wanted to show me

7:11:247:11:27

what my ultimate goal would be - the bulldog.

7:11:277:11:31

This trick involves lying on the hood of the Jet Ski

7:11:337:11:36

and spinning it round.

7:11:367:11:38

Not sure how I'm going to master that!

7:11:387:11:41

'At first, it was back to basics for me,

7:11:417:11:44

'learning to start the Jet Ski and move off safely.'

7:11:447:11:47

-Start like that.

-Yeah.

-And then...

7:11:477:11:49

-give it a little bit of throttle, pull yourself upon to your knees.

-OK.

7:11:497:11:54

'It all seemed pretty straightforward...

7:11:547:11:57

'but it had a bit more power than I thought it would!'

7:11:577:12:01

I had to learn to get up on my knees.

7:12:057:12:07

I knew I would have to master turning

7:12:077:12:10

if I was going to pull off the bulldog.

7:12:107:12:13

More of a sharp turn!

7:12:137:12:14

OK.

7:12:147:12:15

'It's not as easy as it looks.'

7:12:177:12:21

Turning on my knees is one thing, but for the bulldog,

7:12:217:12:24

I need to balance on the hood, so it's back to dry land.

7:12:247:12:28

The first thing I need to do is that.

7:12:287:12:31

Yeah, fix your hand to that.

7:12:317:12:33

Lift, turn.

7:12:337:12:34

Yeah. Put your leg more down, make it bent a bit.

7:12:347:12:38

That is a bulldog.

7:12:387:12:39

'Sure, Jack. No problem(!)'

7:12:397:12:40

You're on your own, now, Helen.

7:12:407:12:42

I began to FEEL on my own.

7:12:427:12:45

The bulldog seemed easy on the land, but the water was a different story.

7:12:457:12:49

I was falling off left...

7:12:497:12:52

right...

7:12:527:12:53

and centre!

7:12:537:12:55

Eventually, I started to get the hang of it.

7:12:577:13:00

Whoo!

7:13:027:13:04

Yeeeeah!

7:13:047:13:07

Whoo!

7:13:077:13:08

-That was it!

-Yay! I like that.

7:13:087:13:11

Now, since then, Jack has come a long way.

7:13:117:13:15

Later in the year he is going to be competing in Arizona in a bid

7:13:157:13:19

to become world champion.

7:13:197:13:21

We wanted to give you the inside story on Jack and his moves,

7:13:217:13:24

so, when Barney heard the word "Jet Ski",

7:13:247:13:27

he put his wetsuit on and headed out there to meet the man himself.

7:13:277:13:32

Hello and welcome to the Manchester Ship Canal just outside the studio

7:13:327:13:35

here in Salford. We're on the water, doing a bit of play time.

7:13:357:13:39

I like to do all of my interviews via Jet Ski.

7:13:397:13:42

That would be nice.

7:13:427:13:43

We are here with Jack, who is a legend,

7:13:437:13:45

Thanks for coming back on the show. We saw you three years ago,

7:13:457:13:49

you are now 17 and you're number two in the world...

7:13:497:13:51

-I am.

-..on that beast.

7:13:517:13:53

How is that Jet Ski different to mine?

7:13:537:13:56

This is a stand-up Jet Ski with a 900cc engine,

7:13:567:13:58

and it's fully carbon fibre. Yours is a sit-down Jet Ski

7:13:587:14:02

and it's built for freerolling.

7:14:027:14:04

Yours has to be nice and light, cos you do tricks. What does it weigh?

7:14:047:14:08

It weighs 15 stone.

7:14:087:14:10

A normal stand-up Jet Ski weighs about 22 stone.

7:14:107:14:12

Wow. 15 stone is really light. Imagine a small child is five stone,

7:14:127:14:15

that's three times the weight of a small child.

7:14:157:14:18

You're going to show us what you can do, I'm going to get out of the way!

7:14:187:14:21

Jack, everybody.

7:14:217:14:23

Hats off, that is impressive. It's easy to see why you're number two.

7:15:337:15:37

But that won't be for much longer, cos come October,

7:15:377:15:41

you are going to compete in Arizona to become number one.

7:15:417:15:44

Do you have a signature move?

7:15:447:15:46

A no-handed barrel roll.

7:15:467:15:48

A no-handed barrel roll.

7:15:487:15:49

-You're going to do something in the air with no hands?

-Yeah.

7:15:497:15:52

It's a 360-degree rotation.

7:15:527:15:54

-I'm going to take my hands off, like a corkscrew.

-I can't wait to see it.

7:15:547:16:01

CHEERING

7:16:087:16:11

Number one all the way, without a doubt. Now it's my go.

7:16:127:16:17

There's only one word for him - wow, that is impressive.

7:16:197:16:22

I'll stand here, like Grandma. They'll keep having fun

7:16:227:16:25

and I'll tell you about next week's show.

7:16:257:16:27

We are planning a party extravaganza.

7:16:277:16:29

In the run-up to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee,

7:16:297:16:32

three teams of patriotic party planners

7:16:327:16:34

are going head-to-head in a bid to put on the best bash in town.

7:16:347:16:38

And if you're thinking of planning a party of your own,

7:16:387:16:41

we will give you some top tips on how you can get creative.

7:16:417:16:45

Don't forget, in two weeks, we'll be starting our brand-new show,

7:16:457:16:49

Blue Peter's Big Olympic Tour.

7:16:497:16:52

It's happening on the CBBC channel on Saturdays at 9am.

7:16:527:16:55

If you want to come along and get involved,

7:16:557:16:58

just check out the website.

7:16:587:16:59

That's it for today. We'll see you soon.
