Coming up on today's live Blue Peter - with only hours before the

:00:16.:00:21.

new Bond film is released, I test out my driving skills in a real

:00:21.:00:28.

James Bond car. Ahead of Operation Iceberg, we uncover the secrets of

:00:28.:00:38.
:00:38.:00:56.

the frozen world. We find out how Hello. Welcome to if -- the show.

:00:56.:01:00.

In five weeks' time Children In Need will be hitting your screens.

:01:00.:01:05.

We have launched the new Blue Peter Appeal - Go Pyjamas. Everyone loves

:01:06.:01:11.

a pyjama party. We are asking you to raise money for Children In Need.

Get sponsored for wearing your pyjamas. You could go to school,

:01:16.:01:20.

:01:20.:01:24.

will be part of the appeal. would like to find out where you

:01:24.:01:28.

are going to be doing it. We have a Blue Peter map over here. When you

:01:28.:01:35.

get in touch, we will stick it on here so we can keep track on you.

:01:35.:01:39.

Lots of you have been in touch already. We want to cover this map

:01:39.:01:49.
:01:49.:01:50.

with stickers and give you a mention. In Stockport, Chloe's

Nottingham. Casey and Charlie are in South-East

:02:15.:02:20.

London. They are doing a sponsored silence. They normally cannot keep

quiet. It is all for a good cause. Erin is in Cumbria. She said she

:02:28.:02:36.

will play tennis in her onesy. will play tennis in her onesy.

:02:36.:02:42.

Get in touch right now, D at: There's another reason for letting

:02:43.:02:47.

us know where you are going to be having your pyjama party, because

:02:47.:02:50.

between now and Children In Need, Barney and I are going to get along

:02:50.:02:55.

and surprise as many of you as possible. You will not know when or

:02:55.:02:59.

where. We might be hiding around the corner, which is what happened

:02:59.:03:07.

at a school in York. I'm roaring through North Yorkshire

:03:07.:03:11.

to arrive in style at one of the first Go Pyjamas fund-raising

:03:11.:03:16.

events in the country. Everyone at the school is exsiteed

:03:16.:03:21.

about being in their pyjamas to raise money for Children In Need.

:03:21.:03:28.

Is it a big deal wearing your PJs in school? It is embarrassing.

:03:28.:03:33.

is funny seeing teachers. Normally we have to come in our boring

:03:33.:03:43.

So, at the moment, everybody is in the school assembly. They think

:03:43.:03:49.

they are being filmed by Blue Peter because we are saying thank you for

:03:49.:03:52.

raising money. What they do not know is I am here and I am about to

:03:52.:03:57.

give them a big surprise. I have to wait for my cue and that is a

:03:57.:04:01.

special video message to the whole school during their assembly.

:04:01.:04:06.

Thank you so much for putting on a Go Pyjamas event in your school. I

:04:06.:04:11.

hope you guys have lots of fun, play party games. For now, watch

:04:11.:04:19.

this space, because you are in for a Blue Peter surprise.

:04:19.:04:29.
:04:29.:04:42.

Now it is my turn to light up the After three, everyone shout "Go

:04:42.:04:49.

Pyjamas." One, two, three. Are we all having fun in our

:04:49.:04:55.

pyjamas? We have set up a little surprise for you.

:04:55.:05:05.
:05:05.:05:10.

Who wants to have a little party? Everyone get in a nice big circle

:05:10.:05:15.

and look at your very own fun fair in your playground. One rule is you

:05:15.:05:22.

have to have a lot of fun. Can you do that? ALL: Yes!

:05:22.:05:32.
:05:32.:05:42.

Roll up, roll up, don't be shy. Hello. What's your name?

:05:42.:05:51.

Oh, unlucky. A little bit higher. Zero. Go Pyjamas. Well, I can have

:05:51.:06:01.

a go, can't I? Barney is awesome. Nun ever comes

:06:01.:06:11.
:06:11.:06:16.

to our school. Ellie was screaming. -- no one ever comes to our school.

:06:16.:06:23.

Ellie was screaming. Who wants this one? There you go! That is yours.

:06:24.:06:28.

You have to make one for yourself, haven't you?

:06:28.:06:35.

Go Pyjamas! Three, two, one!

:06:35.:06:39.

You're off. We get to see someone that's actually been on TV and is a

:06:39.:06:46.

TV star! It's for a good cause, for Children

:06:46.:06:51.

In Need. I wish our playground could stay like this forever.

:06:51.:06:57.

If you want to hold your own pyjama day, you can find out a lot of

:06:57.:07:03.

ideas on the website. Go over there and Go Pyjamas. You never know, we

:07:03.:07:13.
:07:13.:07:15.

I love you were wearing the tiger onsie!

:07:15.:07:19.

You can wear pyjamas over your ordinary clothes. So long as you

:07:19.:07:28.

are raising for Children In Need, that is all that matters. You can

:07:28.:07:33.

see how good it was, everyone had, you know when you drink black

:07:33.:07:41.

current, you get that sticky around your lips. We are having a pillow

:07:41.:07:46.

fight here. That is me, dressed as a bar code! That is one with

:07:46.:07:51.

balloons. You have to have balloons at a photo shot. We have picked our

:07:51.:07:56.

favourite and stuck it online to have fun with it. Haven't we?

:07:56.:08:01.

This is one photograph of us in our night wear. We invited you guys to

:08:01.:08:07.

add a caption. We had lots of suggestions - toe pass party ghost,

:08:08.:08:15.

has Barney saying "Who has put jelly in my hat?" This one says,

:08:15.:08:20.

seriously am I supposed to wear this - it is so 19th century.

:08:20.:08:25.

Barney is fashion conscious in his PJs. We are going to use this

:08:25.:08:31.

photograph and the same caption thing here for the November of our

:08:31.:08:37.

Blue Peter calendar. It is the official picture for the November

:08:37.:08:42.

calendar. You can print it out and you can put the caption in there

:08:42.:08:48.

yourself. You can add whatever you like. Lots of good dates. Your

:08:48.:08:57.

birthday is on there. Yes, mine and Miley Cyrus. Don't forget to play

:08:57.:09:02.

Pudsey Pairs. There is an excellent new show starting next week, called

:09:02.:09:06.

Operation Iceberg. One member of the intrepid team

:09:06.:09:11.

happens to be a friend of the show. It is Dr Chris van Tulleken from

:09:11.:09:16.

Operation Ouch. While he was out there he created a special report

:09:16.:09:22.

for us. Icebergs like this are the biggest single objects on Earth. A

:09:22.:09:25.

huge tem of scientists have travelled to this -- team of

:09:26.:09:29.

scientists have travelled to this iceberg to study it for the first

:09:29.:09:34.

time. These vast monsters might seem solid, but they are constantly

:09:34.:09:38.

breaking up. That makes them unstable. That means they can flip

:09:38.:09:46.

at any time. In this unique expedition we will

:09:46.:09:53.

be diving under, sailing around and climbing on this enormous beast.

:09:54.:10:00.

Here's a sneak preview for Blue Peter.

:10:00.:10:05.

Our actionman went diving to discover that undiscovered world

:10:05.:10:15.
:10:15.:10:18.

and the animals that live in it. This place is stunning!

:10:18.:10:22.

Chris was looking out for polar bears. They are the largest land

:10:22.:10:27.

carnivore in the world and one of the few animals that will hunt a

:10:27.:10:34.

human being. This is all my Christmases come at once - a polar

:10:34.:10:40.

bear. I hoped to see one. I didn't think we would. These are marine

:10:40.:10:43.

mammals, they can cover great distances in the sea. They

:10:43.:10:48.

frequently do, swimming between the ice flows. Look, it is about 20

:10:48.:10:55.

metres off now. How exciting.

:10:55.:11:01.

During the summer months, polar bears are usually trapped on the

:11:01.:11:05.

Canadian mainland so, the team were not expecting to see one out here.

:11:05.:11:11.

It soon becomes clear it's not alone.

:11:11.:11:17.

A polar bear on our iceberg! One of the finest animals that

:11:17.:11:23.

currently stalks the planet. Hang on a moment!

:11:23.:11:29.

Can I have the binoculars, please? Oh, I don't believe it! I really

:11:29.:11:32.

don't! There's actually another bear over here on the ice.

:11:32.:11:39.

You can see it. There - it is a little speck - so

:11:39.:11:45.

in the space of just half an hour, we have seen three polar bears. One

:11:45.:11:50.

in the water, just off the iceberg. There's one here, happy, smiling

:11:50.:11:59.

and about 500 metres over there is a third bear on our iceberg. It's

:11:59.:12:09.
:12:09.:12:10.

beartastic! It's bearcity! I got to grips with oily fish and

:12:10.:12:20.
:12:20.:12:21.

seal bluber. You know in an Italian restaurant you have bread and dip

:12:21.:12:26.

in -- it in some oil. This is the northern equivalent. You dip it

:12:27.:12:31.

into salt and then you chew... It is pretty bad actually! I think

:12:31.:12:38.

I'll - you can learn to like anything... Almost anything. I wish

:12:38.:12:46.

I had not mixed whale and kipper! I thought that would go better than

:12:46.:12:55.

it did! That's a bit of heart. Seal heart.

:12:55.:13:01.

It smells like I do at the moment - it's strong. It is meety. It is --

:13:01.:13:06.

meaty. It is a bit off. Pass me the chocolate, cake,

:13:06.:13:16.
:13:16.:13:20.

I love coming to the Arctic. Everything about it seems bigger -

:13:20.:13:24.

the wildlife is bigger. You've got these vast worlds of ice. The sun

:13:25.:13:28.

shines for 24 hours a day. What's been really special for me about

:13:28.:13:33.

this trip is coming here with experts, experts from the sea,

:13:33.:13:37.

experts in the ice. It is when you understand a place like this,

:13:37.:13:44.

that's when it really comes alive. Well, he has cast the jacket aside

:13:44.:13:54.
:13:54.:13:55.

and is with us in in the studio. Dr Chris is with us. Lots of people

:13:55.:14:00.

know you from Operation Ouch. We're loving it. Love it! This is

:14:00.:14:08.

something completely different, wasn't it? You went to see how the

:14:08.:14:18.
:14:18.:14:19.

cold affects the body? I was doing experiments on one of the guys.

:14:19.:14:23.

want you to tie your shoelaces. We will time you. Then put your hands

:14:23.:14:28.

in cold water. Then we will time you a second time, tying your laces

:14:28.:14:36.

to see how that cold water has affected your body.

:14:36.:14:43.

Last summer, before r before I went to Antarctica, I was dunked into

:14:43.:14:53.
:14:53.:15:00.

I found it amazing that my body temperature was dropping even when

:15:00.:15:08.

I was warming up. We are going to time you, go! He's good at that.

:15:08.:15:14.

I'd only been doing it a couple of weeks! Stop the clock! That took

:15:14.:15:19.

you 8.9 seconds. Get your hands into the water. The fuel ice-cubes.

:15:19.:15:26.

Keep your hands in there. As you said, it's painful. Why? It's

:15:26.:15:32.

because cold stimulates the same nerves that pain does. As his hands

:15:32.:15:36.

get colder, his body will take blood away from them so it doesn't

:15:36.:15:46.
:15:46.:15:47.

When we did that experiment, I had the thermometer in my stomach. Even

:15:47.:15:51.

when I was out of the cold water, my body temperature was plummeting.

:15:51.:15:56.

What should you do to stay safe? you fall into cold water, it is

:15:56.:16:00.

dangerous. But you can survive much longer than you think. The trick is

:16:00.:16:03.

to get through the first few minutes and stay calm. It's

:16:03.:16:07.

interesting that we have your hands in there. It is your hands and feet

:16:07.:16:11.

that can be the biggest risk in environments like that? It's

:16:11.:16:19.

difficult, if you have to try to rescue yourself, take something off,

:16:19.:16:23.

remove your seat belt, this is where you lose dexterity. Frostbite

:16:23.:16:27.

is something that people worry about in that environment. If you

:16:27.:16:31.

have a weak stomach, look away now. We have got some images that are

:16:31.:16:40.

quite graphic. We went to seed Sir Ranulph finds. His fingers got

:16:40.:16:50.
:16:50.:16:51.

frostbite. For -- Sir Ranulph finds. He has frozen his fingers solid.

:16:51.:16:56.

The black stuff is dead flesh. He has cut that off. That after he had

:16:56.:17:00.

an operation. That is obviously very extreme. You don't have to

:17:00.:17:04.

worry, your fingers go cold, you cannot feel them and then you are

:17:04.:17:11.

in trouble. It looks like you have suffered enough. We want to see you

:17:11.:17:17.

tying your shoelaces again. I'll get ready with the clock. Start

:17:17.:17:24.

tying your shoelaces now. How do your hands feel? Really cold!

:17:24.:17:29.

Believe it or not... You know how your brain tells you things, your

:17:29.:17:36.

brain says, right, fingers, move. And they say, no, too cold! That is

:17:36.:17:39.

because the nerves are not working any more. Presumably they are still

:17:39.:17:44.

hurting? It is like somebody has sat on them. Stop the clock. How do

:17:44.:17:54.

you feel? Cold. That's quite a long The first time, it was eight

:17:54.:17:58.

seconds. The second time it was 22 seconds. That shows that the cold

:17:58.:18:04.

has a massive effect on your body. All the more reason to call you a

:18:04.:18:08.

hero for doing this show. Make sure you are watching Operation Iceberg.

:18:08.:18:14.

If you miss it, you can watch it on iPlayer. If you don't mind, I'm

:18:14.:18:18.

going to go back over here with my hands under my armpits. That's a

:18:18.:18:24.

good thing to do. That is where you are warmest. You should do that on

:18:24.:18:28.

a cold day, watching football. Let's talk about something else

:18:28.:18:31.

Chris Sims. Eyeballs full of peanut butter is what we showed you last

:18:32.:18:37.

week. We showed you how to make the Chris Sims eyeballs. We told you

:18:37.:18:44.

about adding lemon curd to make them look Killie. Quite a few of

:18:44.:18:54.
:18:54.:18:57.

Eleanor and Emma from Cambridge had a go. Sarah went to town. Look at

:18:57.:19:03.

this, lots of gruesome eyeballs and what looks like a face on the side.

:19:03.:19:13.
:19:13.:19:18.

And a random chocolate cake. Listen, tomorrow sees the start of a brand

:19:18.:19:22.

new James Bond movie, Skyfall. You've got explosions, sequences

:19:22.:19:29.

that involve fast cars. Normally, you have to beat a spy to drive one

:19:29.:19:33.

of those. So imagine how excited I was when I found out I was allowed

:19:33.:19:43.
:19:43.:19:52.

The 23rd to James Bond film, Skyfall, is about to hit our

:19:52.:20:02.
:20:02.:20:11.

screens. It sees 007 meet a whole Some men are coming to kill us. We

:20:11.:20:18.

are going to kill them first. while 007 has a licence to kill, it

:20:18.:20:28.
:20:28.:20:41.

is often his licence to drive that At the National Motor Museum, they

:20:42.:20:51.
:20:52.:20:53.

have some of his most memorable This is my favourite James Bond car

:20:53.:21:00.

of all time. It was in the Spy Who loved Me. It does 138 mph and it is

:21:00.:21:10.
:21:10.:21:13.

British-built. The most impressive How cool is that? Traditionally, he

:21:13.:21:18.

drives a British car. But back when Pierce Brosnan played him, he

:21:18.:21:22.

decided to drive one of these, a German-made BMW which had been

:21:22.:21:32.
:21:32.:21:38.

specially modified so that he could Grow up, 007! I'm downloading that

:21:38.:21:48.
:21:48.:21:50.

James Bond is a classic English spy. So, he needs a classic English car.

:21:50.:21:56.

Here is the one that started it all, the Aston Martin. The start of the

:21:56.:22:04.

movie Goldfinger, driven by Sean Connery. The man driving it today

:22:04.:22:08.

is Ben Collins. He was a lead stunt driver on Skyfall and he's going to

:22:08.:22:15.

show me what it takes to drive like James Bond. Ben, how are you doing?

:22:15.:22:21.

Thanks very much. So, it year it is, the classic Aston Martin. 1964,

:22:21.:22:27.

filming Goldfinger. Pretty iconic. It only does 140 mph. And thinking

:22:27.:22:37.

of taking you out in something a That is more like it. This is from

:22:37.:22:47.
:22:47.:23:10.

Casino Royale. It does 197 mph. That's incredible. So, the car is

:23:10.:23:15.

impressive. But what stunt does he want me to try? Your challenge is

:23:15.:23:19.

the tightest possible doughnut. That is the front end of the car

:23:19.:23:23.

staying in one spot, and the back end spinning around? It is one of

:23:23.:23:27.

Hollywood's most difficult car stunts, requiring absolute

:23:27.:23:31.

precision but giving stunning results. Let's see how the

:23:31.:23:37.

professionals do it. To get it right, I'll need to give the car

:23:37.:23:41.

the right mix of power and Steering at the right time. Too much or too

:23:41.:23:50.

little wider will mean that I lose control the car. What is amazing,

:23:50.:23:57.

watching you do that, is how physical it is. It's now my go. He

:23:57.:24:00.

taught me the different things to think about, it's quite a physical

:24:00.:24:04.

thing to do. I guess the only way to find out if it is possible is to

:24:04.:24:10.

try it. But before he let me loose on the doughnut, he wants to test

:24:10.:24:15.

my driving skills. You might want to put your seat belt on! Actually,

:24:15.:24:20.

I am safer without it. If anything goes wrong, I can grabbed the

:24:20.:24:30.
:24:30.:24:39.

First, can I handle the brakes? Harder! Got it. Next, how is my

:24:39.:24:46.

steering? Nice, don't try to counter to much, but that was good.

:24:46.:24:56.
:24:56.:24:56.

Can I combine Power and Steering to No one was harmed in the making of

:24:56.:25:01.

this film! Ben seems happy with my driving skills. I think it's time

:25:01.:25:11.
:25:11.:25:22.

to try the stunt. I've steered too Not that time. A bit too much.

:25:22.:25:30.

much power! I'm getting dizzy. gone wrong again, what am I doing?

:25:31.:25:37.

Too much steering? Too much power. This is incredibly difficult.

:25:37.:25:42.

harder than it looks. James Bond makes it look so easy. It's really

:25:42.:25:52.
:25:52.:26:01.

difficult to get the right Keep going, keep going! Wow!

:26:01.:26:09.

Amazing, I did it. Sure, we lost a few cones in the process, but we

:26:09.:26:12.

did it. But, in completing the stunt, the engine has overheated

:26:12.:26:19.

and the car is not working properly. Oh, dear. They are not too

:26:19.:26:29.
:26:29.:26:34.

expensive, are they? It only In fairness, James Bond always

:26:34.:26:39.

destroys the car. I'm so jealous. It takes people you years to learn

:26:39.:26:45.

that. I didn't really break the car, it was fine. Follow us to the Blue

:26:50.:26:55.

have been in touch since the start of the show. In Edinburgh, Lucy,
