Coming up on Blue Peter. Anything could happen, dom are here, live in
the studio to give you the inside story on their brand-new show. Ed
digs deep into how you can improve your drawing and cooking doesn't
get tougher than this. I go head- to-head with Aaron Craze, to
discover how to create an eco- friendly feast. How do you know
when a tomato is roasted. Barney Hi. Hello. Thanks very much. How
you doing? Welcome to Blue Peter. It is a live show. As you can see
Helen is not here, so I am save sailing this ship on my own. Not
that I mind, while she is away the boys will play. It is an extreme
show. We have extreme cooking, the extreme Dick and Dom. They are here
to talk about their new show Diddy Movies. They are getting ready,
sorry, a bit of interference there. Hello. I'm Diddy Barney. Who are
you? Diddy Baxter? I am Diddy Celt Celt. And recently I have been to
the South Pole. Really? I had to poo in a bag and wait for it to
freeze, then I put it in my pocket. You know what, smells like it is
starting to thaw out. Do you want to have a look. It is thawing out.
It smells like lemons. I have never seen our producer looking so
nervous. Dick and Dom are live in the studio. If you would like to
ask them a question, you can. In is live. This is happening right now.
We would like do you ask them any question you like.
[email protected] The crazier the better. Only e-mail if you are
watching this on Thursday. Now, we like to give you the inside story
here, and we know you love to draw. How cool would it be to draw for
the most amazing stories round the country? We found out that Ed also
happens to be a bit of a cartoonist, so we sent him to get top tips from
the expert. I love reading. And I love drawing even more. If you ask
me, some of the best books are made better by the illustrations inside
them. So I have brought a pad, a pen, and a short story I have
written to this school where I will get some tips from a top children's
illustrator. This is Corky Paul. He has been illustrating children's
books for over 30 years. In that time he has drawn everything there
is to draw, including witch, dragons and pirates. He is really
good. He is here to give the children some tips on how to draw
their characters. I have tagged along to see if I can pick up
advice. Let us see, who shall we draw a dinosaur portrait of? Come
on up Ed. Don't make my nose look too big. By exaggerating my
features, he can turn me into a comedy dinosaur. I was captain of
the cross-country team. My feet aren't that big! A bit of yellow in
there. A bit of grass. Look at that! I have just about forgiven
you for turning me into an ugly dinosaur. I think you look handsome.
I wonder if you could help me illustrate this story. It is about
a handsome and talented TV presenter. It is not based on
anyone in reality! He is training a snail. He takes him to Paris to
show him how much he believes in him. He doesn't realise snails
areadelica si in France. That is when he sprints off down the road
and he becomes the fastest snail in the world. Where do you start?
have to have your text and pictures work together. My first thing, I
would think, Ned, I have to draw a picture of Ned here. So let us see,
what will he look like. A very handsome guy. Very handsome. Let us
see now. Do I do handsome guys? Yes, I can do handsome. So there are so
many things you need to be an illustrator. What is the most
important? The most important, I think, is using your imagination, I
mean lots of people can draw, but it is being able to create your own
vision of the world. He is looking glum. He is poor. He is poor. He
keeps spending on training this snail. Exactly. He can't afford
haircuts. You work out the character. This is what I love in
illustration, when your eye is drawn to something that wasn't in
the story. You think a what is that doing there. The other character,
the snail. Harold the snail. You think about a snail. There are
snails with incredible patterns. Every time you draw a scene. Think
of how can I draw the scene in an unusual way, rather than front on.
We have a kid looking up at something. You want to have the
kid's view. Don't do the most obvious thing. I think that is good
already. I use the pen and ink, and maybe we will improve the drawing a
bit here. Some 06 the tips are suprising, he has given me loads of
ideas for my own drawings. Tink is still wet. Are you I am doing that
on purpose? When you try to make a negative into a positive, rather
than trying to hide it. You can make a big old mess and say I meant
to do that. Can't believe the speed you work out, these are great.
know, when you have a deadline to meet. I was hoping I could take
them away for inspiration. Please do. I will try and illustrate my
own story myself. Read the text and draw and try and add something to
the text. I will try and do it justice. Well done. The characters
have inspired me to finish illustrating my story. If you want
to read the final story, just head to the Blue Peter website. And that
address is: Take a look at these. You should recognise them as book
tokens, you will have been given them as part of World Book Day, if
you still have them you only have until the end of this month to get
them spent. Still to come: Dick and Dom will be here, they are taking
about their new show and they have a Blue Peter challenge to complete.
You won't want to miss it. This week is climate week which means we
are raising awareness for environmental issue, the food we
eat can sometimes be harmful for the planet. Before the food hits
the shelve, there is a process, it has been packaged and transported,
sometimes a long way, this can create gases like carbon dioxide,
which are harmful for the planet. So the question is, is it possible
to create an environment live friendly meal that is good for the
planet? Myself and Aaron Craze were set a Blue Peter challenge to find
out and it all happened in this telly. It is a culinary clash never
before seen on UK television. Blue Peter presenter and amateur cook
Barney Harwood, is going head-to- head, against Aaron Craze, host of
Junior Bake Off and a very good chef indeed. Their mission, to
create the tastiest meal they can, but using the lowest carbon. Barney
Rubble, you're in trouble. I am feeling confident. They will have
30 minutes to impress the judges. Cooking doesn't get more
environmentally-friendly than this. Before we can let the rivals into
the kitchen, they need to source the ingredients for their final
plate of food. First to take to the supermarket is Barney Harwood. He
knows exactly what is on his menu. I am going for fish, chips and
mushy peace. It has to be low in carbon. Potatoes come out of the
ground and fish comes out the sea and peas grow on pea trees! So the
most low carbon male you have heard of. These are British white
potatoes, they are good for my dish and the planet. The most carbon
efficient veg are those grown in season on home soil. They have the
least far to travel, meaning less fuel is burned. So British spuds
are a good choice Barney. But as it happens not all veg are good for
the climate. At certain times of the year some more exotic veg can't
grow in the UK. This means they have to be flown over from other
country, to get them on to the supermarket shelves while they are
stel fresh. Since fuel from planes creates carbon dioxide, it is not
good for the environment. Meanwhile opponent and top chef Aaron Craze
has decided on his menu. I am going to do a stir-fry. First I will need
chicken. I have come to this aisle where you have mini fillets and
they are perfect. I don't think it is going to travel too far. Can't
get more British than that flag. meat is carbon free but at least
Aaron has chosen chicken instead of beef or lamb. They are both higher
in carbon for a reason you might not expect. When cows and sheep
burp they give off methane which is involved in global warming. Some
say if we ate less beef and lamb there would be less damage to the
environment. So this extreme low carbon challenge isn't as
straightforward as they first thought. Barney has chosen to cook
fish and chips in the hope that local ingredients equal planet
friendly. An Aaron has gone oriental with a chicken stir-fry
since he showed British chicken has a low carbon footprint. Because I
am making my own batter, I am going to need my milk. How much carbon
can yourself you use doing that? Cows equal methane. Six large eggs,
in one piece. Beautiful. It is a small mistake for Aaron. The
British eggs haven't travelled bar but nay have minimal packaging.
Will Harwood make the same mistake with his home-made ketchup?
process of making pacts probably use more energy so that might mean
things in pacts are -- packets are less carbon efficient. Let us go
without packets. Well done Barney, they are British and low in
packaging but this isn't as easy as it might seem. It is not tomato
season, so to get in in March they have to be grown under hot lamps
and that burns energy. Supermarket shopping over, both contenders have
avoided processed foods, so there is everything still to play for,
but what has Aaron chosen for his final ingredient. I have the best
kept secret in London. Right in the middle of the city on top of an
organic supermarket. An urban roof garden. You don't get lower carbon
than this. Growing veg locally in season means you can pick them
fresh and they haven't travelled any distance at all. I have nice
kale. These are early so they are tender. So they might nice. With
With superfresh veg like that Aaron could have the edge. But wait a
minute, what is Barney up to now? am at the fish market in London.
This is the largest selection of fish you will find in the country.
All I need to do is find a nice fish I can put a batter on. So long
as you choose carefully. Fish are lower carbon since they doesn't
burp methane but some are being over harvested. There is lots of
whiting. Better still whiting can be caught close to home in the
North Sea, so top markets for another low carbon choice.
Beautiful. It S you are bang on Barney, that is lovely. I have a
big one here. You sold it so well I am going to go for the whiting.
it. I can't get it out. Oh. Oh! Thank you very much. I am sure I
have got the lowest carbon environmentally-friendly fish in
here, they are really tasty. All I have to do is cook them. I am over
the moon with this box of treasures, there is so much to play with and
it will be fantastic for my stir- fry. Barney, you a lot of work to
do mate. Still to come. It is egg whisks at dawn as the competition
hoth hots up. Who will be crowned the low carbon king of the kitchen?
Stay tuned. I know who woifpbs course because I was there, you
will are to stay tuned. Two people who are full of suprises and I am
delighted to welcome them to the studio, it is Dick and Dom. Hello.
Good to see you. Mind out dear. Mind out. How are you mate? No time
for that. Why you here? You have a new show, we normally see you as
the Diddys. You are used to seeing the Diddy Dick and Dom in a pink
cupboard. Now eventually, Diddy Dick and Dom have come out of their
cupboard and are Hollywood movie stars. Do they get the perks, in
the girl friends, the house? any of that. I have a little friend
here. We reenact many movie, we do a space film, a murder mystery film.
We do the lot. So what happens, Diddy Dick and Dom on each episode
turn up and go and watch the premier of their brand-new movie.
We can show you a great clip. Have a look. Rb your nearest emergency
exit maybe inside you. In the vent of us getting bored, sponge cakes
will descend from above. And remember, to never ever press this
Argh! Oh no. It is a disaster. Please, no more. The legends. It
looks like so much fun to film. Ted Robins is involved. He becomes our
agent. He gives us the money to fund the films. It was a good
experience, we did it a different way, we used to do it our heads
with puppet body, but this way, now what we do is have our body bus
they super impose our heads so we look huge. We had to wear hot suits.
So special effects which all movies have, and you have a great theme
tune. We do. In homage to the best BLUE PETER THEME What a lovely
reenactment it was. Those are the actual words for the theme tune.
Now of course this makes you experts at all things Diddy. It is
sometimes hard when you look at the TV or watch stars to tell how tall
they are. It is that trick of the camera we have devised a game to
see if you can tell all things Diddy from all things biggie.
love a game. In that case it is time to play Who's The Diddy? As
you can see, on the board here we have six celebrity faces, honestly.
We have Robin Williams, we have Dominic Wood, Reece Witherspoon.
David Hasselhoff, the hof. We can have Richard mechanic Court.
that really me? We have Tom Cruise, if you look behind you you will see
some bodies with heights on. We would like do you match the
celebrity face with the body. You will have 45 seconds to do it and
your time starts now: Second to last. Five foot five? You are
smaller than that. Tom Cruise. Little man. She is lovely.
think she is tall? How tall are you. I'm a big one. We have done it
before time. That is the end of the game. I was about to fill five
seconds in a professional mode. Here we have Tom Cruise who you
thought was 5'two. That should have been Reece Witherspoon. Dominic you
thought you were 5'5". I know I am. You thought Rees wither spoon was
5'7". Richard McCourt, six foot four, no, he is not. You have got
one two, three, just two right. Which isn't bad. I blame him.
the meantime let us find out who wins the eco-food challenge, myself
or the professional chef. You will be suprised. Previously in our
culinary clash these two eco- warriors prepared for their kitchen
battle. Barney has chosen to cook fish and chips with peas and kuch
up and Aaron has planned a chicken stir-fry with superfresh veg and
noodles. Now it is time for them to conjure up their eco-meals for two
of the toughest judges in town. Freya was winner of the junior bake
off but this time it is her turn to do the tasting. What I am looking
for is a clean worktop and great output. Joining her to judge will
be Mike, an expert in eco-friendly eating. He never fails to stop a
high carbon food. I will be looking for seasonal redge stable --
vegetables and not too much packaging. They will look for the
most eco-friendly meal they can make. You have 35 minutes to knock
up the meal of your choice. time starts now. I am feeling
confident. I think everyone loves fish and chips, don't they. There
is your key word. Fish, I reckon that is as low carbon as it gets ch
Mine is carbon free. A box of veg. Less talking more cooking boys!
First up for Barney is the ketchup. I am going to roast these. Aaron is
pressing on with his noodles. it a good old fold and squash it
back through the machine. Until it is like leather. They will roast
for about 20 minutes. I want it nice and thin. Here we go. Go down
one step at a time. With his ketchup under way Barney added mint
and butt tore the peas as he prepares to pulp them. Time to mush
them with my whizzy musher. Oh yeah. As ar rop preps the veg and chicken,
he seems confident of a win. Barney Rubble, you're in trouble. How do
you know when a tomato is roasted? Our chefs are making good proguess
but what do the judges think? like the idea of the stir-fry but
the fish and chips sounds good. Do you think the ingredients are eco-
friendly. I am worried about the amount of chicken Aaron has put in
and about Barney's tomatoes. Barney, you only have five minutes left.
Ass in half of ten minutes, as in three minutes more than two. You
better crack on with it. I will Tomato sauce is pretty much done.
That is it. Have I forgotten anything? Your fish Barney.
only have one minute left. What you doing to us Freya? Aaron is nearly
finished. A bit of juice going. for the fish. It looks like Barney
could be in for a battering. Fantastic. That is nearly done.
That is ready. Here we go. Fish is ready. Times up guys, stop cooking
now. Oh dear. Come on Barney! done. Beautiful. It is a good job
in isn't judged on presentation. Fish and chips! So Barney has made
a low carbon fish and chips with home-made ketchup and mushy peas
which looks suprisingly professional. Aaron has plated up a
stir-fry with noodles made from scratch. He has used the freshest
veg in town. The question is, whose dish is the best for the planet and
the taste buds. Lovely low carbon seasonal veg. Pasta is made very
nicely. That is another fine low carbon food. I think I done well,
and I am confident I am going to win. And this is a local sea fish.
According to the guy at the market. Great carbon credentials. Chips are
nice. Aren't they. I like to think I could win. I am up against a
professional chef who is better looking than a I am. Let us talk
about taste. Although Barney's fish was crumbly I loved the batter.
thought the fish was a really good low carbon choice, but I am a bit
more bothered about the tomatoes. thought Aaron's was very nice and I
loved the kick of chilli. He could have done better on the chicken.
Two great dishes but we can only pick one. Are you thinking what I'm
thinking? I think I might be. with the decision made it is time
for the judges to announce the overall winner. OK guys, we have
come to a decision. Our eco- champion is... Aaron. The judges
decided that Aaron's stir-fry was the tastiest, and in spite of the
chicken his low carbon veg and noodles made it the lowest carbon
meal. Well done mate. I won it! Yeah, I won it. I know. I know. He
is all right. Not crying or nothing. I have to say the best man won. His
food was amazing. I want to get through the e-mails, we have had
the most amount of e-mails. Eleanor says if you could have a superpower
what would it be and why? The power to double our wages. Yeah. That
would be nice. Amy say what is the the weirdest thing you've eaten.
His food. Vegetarian food. This one says who is the funniest. He is.
Ben says how you so funny. We have a good producer who tells us what
to say. Chelsea says do you still play bogies. No, we hate it.
love it. That is what I meant. you remember that restaurant we
were in. They started playing bogies while we were in a posh
restaurant. How long you known each other for? 1997. How did you start
as a presenter. I started making the tea. I started my own show.
Everybody has started straightening their hair. Dick and Dom, legends:
Let us talk about next week's show. We have a Harry Potter special. Not
only will we be on the set, we will show you round, doing the tour and
you will see the special effects and you love them, JLS will perform
on the show. If you want to ask them questions, go to the message
board and we will try our hardest to ask as many as we can, so many
Barney challenges super chef Aaron Craze to see who can make the most eco-friendly food. Plus, Dick and Dom are live in the studio to give the inside story on their new show, Diddy Movies.
