Coming up on today's show,

7:00:307:00:31

we've got some amazing camera tech from BBC One's The Hunt.

7:00:317:00:34

I take to the skies with one of these amazing flying cameras.

7:00:347:00:37

-I want one!

-How hard can this camera lark be?

7:00:377:00:41

You need to... No, no, you need to...

7:00:417:00:43

CHEERING

7:00:577:01:00

-Hello! Welcome!

-Hello.

7:01:007:01:03

You are watching Blue Peter. You know that.

7:01:037:01:05

It is live.

7:01:057:01:07

You will see two of my favourite things, gadgets and going fast.

7:01:077:01:11

Stay tuned and I'll tell you all about it later.

7:01:117:01:14

We will also be revealing the winner of our totally wild

7:01:147:01:18

Wolfblood competition.

7:01:187:01:20

One of you will get the chance to appear in the new series.

7:01:207:01:23

That is in 20 minutes' time. Keep watching!

7:01:237:01:26

Look who is back in the studio, it's little Iggy!

7:01:267:01:29

Hello, how are you doing?

7:01:297:01:32

She has been doing a brilliant job.

7:01:327:01:35

Training hard, making new friends, and she has moved house.

7:01:357:01:38

It has been all go for Iggy.

7:01:387:01:39

Can't wait to find out how she's got on.

7:01:397:01:41

Now, take a look at that, I suggest you put it on your Christmas list,

7:01:417:01:45

a brand-new camera, only £300,000. Look at what it can do!

7:01:457:01:50

'By the time it is a young adult, a tiger can move

7:01:537:01:56

'without making a sound.

7:01:567:02:00

'But to get close to its prey, it must also be out of sight.'

7:02:077:02:13

Beautiful shots.

7:02:137:02:14

Like a movie. I would like a huge Blue Peter welcome

7:02:147:02:17

to two people who can tell us more about it,

7:02:177:02:19

Hugh Pearson and Gavin Thurston. Welcome to the show.

7:02:197:02:23

Hugh, you are the producer, and you are a cameraman, Gavin.

7:02:237:02:26

Let's talk about the show itself. How would you describe it?

7:02:267:02:30

The Hunt is a wildlife series

7:02:307:02:32

all about predatory animals and their prey.

7:02:327:02:34

We are looking at how predators catch their prey

7:02:347:02:36

and how prey try to escape.

7:02:367:02:38

You must have seen some incredible stuff.

7:02:387:02:40

We've been fortunate enough to see some amazing things.

7:02:407:02:42

Predators come in all shapes and sizes.

7:02:427:02:45

We started off with the small ones - we got, you know, army ants.

7:02:457:02:48

Army ants are some of the top predators in the rainforest.

7:02:487:02:52

Some amazing spiders, chameleons,

7:02:527:02:55

so small predators as well as big ones,

7:02:557:02:57

lions, tigers, and the blue whale,

7:02:577:02:59

the biggest predator that has ever lived.

7:02:597:03:02

You can see the size of it here, next to our cameraman. A big animal!

7:03:027:03:05

Just stunning shots. This has got us thinking today.

7:03:057:03:08

How cool would this be, to have a job like this?

7:03:087:03:11

If you could chase any wild animal in the world, anywhere -

7:03:117:03:14

little brother doesn't count - where would you go?

7:03:147:03:16

What animal would it be? Get in touch.

7:03:167:03:18

Leave us a message and we will read out as many as we can later.

7:03:187:03:22

Let's talk gadgets. My favourite things.

7:03:227:03:25

The big one behind you, Gavin, what is that?

7:03:257:03:28

A gyro-stabilised camera system. It has a camera inside that ball.

7:03:287:03:32

It has a very long zoom lens, so you can zoom in on animals

7:03:327:03:36

from a long way, so you can film them without disturbing them.

7:03:367:03:39

But despite whatever you put it on, if it is shaking around,

7:03:397:03:42

like a helicopter or boat or Land Rover,

7:03:427:03:44

those images are perfectly steady.

7:03:447:03:46

We have a boaty shot, let's have a look.

7:03:467:03:48

The first thing we see is not this camera,

7:03:487:03:51

it is a normal camera filming it.

7:03:517:03:52

Off the coast of Canada, filming humpback whales.

7:03:527:03:55

Everything is rocking around, waves, bumpy.

7:03:557:03:59

With the special camera, rock-steady image, big close-ups.

7:03:597:04:04

The only way you can get that shot is using a camera like this.

7:04:047:04:08

It's beautiful.

7:04:087:04:09

It helps because you have got those shots with the orchestra and

7:04:097:04:12

Sir David Attenborough doing the voice-over, it does not get better.

7:04:127:04:15

Where else have you used this? Is it just boats?

7:04:157:04:18

Originally it was designed to go on a helicopter,

7:04:187:04:21

but you can put it on a boat, a Land Rover.

7:04:217:04:23

Here it is on a Land Rover actually in Africa.

7:04:237:04:27

-Going very quickly!

-That's Jamie filming hunting dogs.

7:04:277:04:31

What a shot!

7:04:317:04:34

Another idea Jamie had was to stick it on an elephant.

7:04:357:04:39

-And why not?

-It worked very well.

7:04:397:04:42

That's the whole point of the camera, it stabilises the movement.

7:04:427:04:45

We have tried to recreate it in the studio.

7:04:457:04:47

Bring in the elephant! Only kidding!

7:04:477:04:50

But we can bring in Lindsey.

7:04:507:04:52

-I'm going to have a go...

-Don't call me an elephant, Barney!

7:04:527:04:55

Technically, I think I might have done!

7:04:557:04:57

I understand cameras, but how do I control it?

7:04:577:05:00

It is a bit like one of those TV game control units

7:05:007:05:03

you might have for your television.

7:05:037:05:05

A joystick on the right, controlling up and down.

7:05:057:05:08

You have got a focus wheel, zoom control.

7:05:087:05:11

Stick your hands on and have a go.

7:05:117:05:13

I've got a bit of help from Katie, who will give me

7:05:137:05:16

a helping hand controlling it.

7:05:167:05:18

Lindsey, you have got to pretend to be an animal.

7:05:187:05:20

-You are dressed like a cheetah!

-Leopard, I would say.

7:05:207:05:24

So, I'm going to try and follow you. You've got to be all leopardy.

7:05:247:05:28

-OK, here I am.

-I have got you.

7:05:287:05:30

-Come on.

-She's a very fast leopard.

-Very fast leopard!

7:05:307:05:33

Go for the close-up, Barney.

7:05:337:05:36

Close-up, OK.

7:05:367:05:38

That has gone horribly wrong.

7:05:387:05:40

I genuinely am trying to keep up with you.

7:05:407:05:43

Lindsey, you look cool!

7:05:437:05:44

Now, animals don't stand and smile at you, they are very difficult

7:05:457:05:49

to chase, as we have realised.

7:05:497:05:51

You have got to know what you are doing.

7:05:517:05:53

Exactly, that comes with experience of watching behaviour and so on,

7:05:537:05:56

but there are no rehearsals.

7:05:567:05:58

Every time it does something, you get one take.

7:05:587:06:01

I could do this all day! Well, Lindsey and Katie, for now,

7:06:017:06:04

thank you very much. Let's talk about the little dude next to you.

7:06:047:06:07

This is a normal camera, but it does something special.

7:06:077:06:10

This camera, with this lens on the front, enables you to get

7:06:107:06:13

in really close and see things you would not see with your naked eye.

7:06:137:06:17

We have some footage. This is incredible.

7:06:177:06:19

Filmed by a legend of the industry.

7:06:197:06:21

Alistair McEwan,

7:06:217:06:22

this is in Madagascar, these chameleons, and it's using

7:06:227:06:26

this sort of array that these special lenses get

7:06:267:06:28

close-up shots like this, tight on the eyes and the feet.

7:06:287:06:33

The praying mantis in the same place.

7:06:337:06:35

All of these are predators.

7:06:357:06:37

In The Hunt, we wanted small predators as well as big.

7:06:377:06:40

A praying mantis, cool predator.

7:06:407:06:41

A shot like that, you can only get with these lenses.

7:06:417:06:44

Well, we don't have any praying mantises in the studio, but we do

7:06:447:06:47

-have a subject for you to film, Gavin.

-We do.

7:06:477:06:49

I'm not going to tell you what it is, but see if you can guess what

7:06:497:06:52

it is when it comes into focus. I need some more light.

7:06:527:06:54

OK, there's the light for you.

7:06:547:06:56

Just to give you a sense of scale and how close it will get.

7:06:567:06:59

Do you know what that is yet?

7:06:597:07:01

There it is.

7:07:017:07:02

What a beautiful thing to finish on, the Blue Peter badge.

7:07:027:07:05

Thank you for bringing your gadgets in and talking to us.

7:07:057:07:07

It's a brilliant series. You've done some amazing work.

7:07:077:07:10

If you want to see The Hunt, Sunday, BBC One, 4:50pm.

7:07:107:07:13

If you do not want to wait, don't worry,

7:07:137:07:16

here's another incredible shot.

7:07:167:07:18

Boys, thank you very much.

7:07:187:07:20

'Portia is a jumping spider.

7:07:227:07:24

'Able to leap up to 50 times her own body length.

7:07:287:07:32

'Nowhere seems beyond her reach.'

7:07:367:07:38

-Wow!

-There are some things that immediately inspire you to get

7:07:427:07:46

involved and The Hunt does that. Incredible.

7:07:467:07:50

Someone else who is incredible is little Iggy.

7:07:507:07:53

If you have been wondering where she has been, she has been

7:07:537:07:56

working harder than ever in her journey to become a guide dog.

7:07:567:08:00

We are so proud and we have been there every step of the way.

7:08:007:08:04

'Today is a big day for Iggy.

7:08:067:08:08

'After living with her puppy dog trainer Anna for a year,

7:08:087:08:11

'it is time to move on and move out.'

7:08:117:08:13

-Ready to go.

-Ready!

7:08:137:08:15

'I have come to Anna's house to help pack Iggy's bags.

7:08:157:08:18

'Well remembered, Iggy!'

7:08:187:08:20

Come on, let's get in the car.

7:08:207:08:22

'Now she is a year old, she must train full-time,

7:08:227:08:25

'so she needs to live at the guide dog school.'

7:08:257:08:29

Here we are, this is Iggy's home for the next six months.

7:08:297:08:32

-Hi, Richard.

-Hi, Lindsey.

-Good to see you.

-And you.

7:08:327:08:36

Shall we take her inside?

7:08:367:08:38

We will look after her. Won't we?

7:08:387:08:40

You can see behind me there, Anna is saying her final goodbyes

7:08:407:08:43

to Iggy, which is going to be a bit emotional.

7:08:437:08:46

In a minute, Richard and I will go and see her new home.

7:08:467:08:49

-Through here?

-That's it.

7:08:507:08:52

Her kennel is coming up on the right.

7:08:527:08:54

I can see her name! Shall we take her in?

7:08:547:08:57

-Yeah. Let's take in.

-Come on, then.

-Her new home.

7:08:577:09:00

'As well as a new home, Iggy gets to meet her new trainer, Kath.'

7:09:007:09:06

She has been here with you once before,

7:09:067:09:07

so she knows it a little bit.

7:09:077:09:09

She is happy, relaxed, nice and settled already.

7:09:097:09:12

What happens next? Does she stay in here the whole time?

7:09:127:09:15

She'll spend the next two weeks in here,

7:09:157:09:17

getting used to the environment, nice and gently,

7:09:177:09:19

then she will move into the next kennel block

7:09:197:09:22

and Kath will take her through the next stages of training.

7:09:227:09:25

The next phase of Iggy's training has begun.

7:09:257:09:29

I thought I would be sad, but I have been really happy

7:09:297:09:33

and it is so nice to see how settled

7:09:337:09:35

and calm Iggy is in her brand-new home.

7:09:357:09:37

Over the next three months, they become firm friends.

7:09:407:09:43

Good girl!

7:09:437:09:45

Now Kath can start Iggy's obedience and harness training.

7:09:457:09:50

The harness is the connection between the guide dog and owner.

7:09:507:09:53

So it is essential that Iggy gets used to wearing one.

7:09:537:09:56

Over the coming weeks,

7:09:567:09:57

Iggy takes on a variety of obstacle courses to train her for what

7:09:577:10:01

she might encounter working outdoors.

7:10:017:10:04

She gets to have a bit of fun too!

7:10:057:10:07

'Three months later, I am back to see if she can do

7:10:087:10:11

'an obstacle course with me.'

7:10:117:10:13

Shorten your stride a bit, give her room to come across.

7:10:137:10:16

'Don't worry, Iggy is not invisible.

7:10:167:10:19

'Before I catch up with her, I have to learn about how to use

7:10:197:10:22

'the harness correctly.'

7:10:227:10:23

There is more to think about than you would realise!

7:10:237:10:26

There certainly is.

7:10:267:10:27

After a practice walk with Richard, I'm keen to see how

7:10:277:10:30

-the harness works with Iggy.

-Good girl.

7:10:307:10:33

Well, Richard, I did like you playing the role of Iggy there,

7:10:337:10:35

-but I've got to say I actually prefer Iggy in the harness.

-Fair enough.

7:10:357:10:38

It's nice to get a go at this. What are we going to do first?

7:10:387:10:41

What we'll do first is we'll get her to up-sit. Iggy, up-sit. That's it.

7:10:417:10:45

-Good. Then you just slide your right foot back half a pace.

-Oh, yeah.

7:10:457:10:49

-Slide it like that?

-Swing your right arm and tell her, forward.

7:10:497:10:52

-And will she just go?

-She'll just go.

7:10:527:10:54

-Iggy, forward.

-That's it. Good.

7:10:547:10:57

Then just keeping your left arm nice and relaxed,

7:10:577:10:59

-try and look straight ahead.

-OK.

7:10:597:11:01

Then we just keep talking to her. Good girl, find the way.

7:11:017:11:04

-Wow, you can feel it with the harness.

-You can.

7:11:047:11:07

You can feel exactly what Iggy's doing.

7:11:077:11:09

So, Iggy's done really well with the training there.

7:11:097:11:11

I think she's got her head around the course. There's only one

7:11:117:11:14

thing left to do to see if we can both do it, get the blindfold on.

7:11:147:11:17

It's important in Iggy's training for her to be in complete control

7:11:177:11:21

and wearing a blindfold helps bring me

7:11:217:11:23

get a step closer to what it might be like for people with sight loss.

7:11:237:11:27

-OK, Iggy, forward.

-That's it. Good.

7:11:277:11:30

-We are going so fast.

-You've got to project confidence now.

-OK, sorry.

7:11:307:11:34

-Good girl, Iggy.

-That's it.

-Good girl.

7:11:347:11:38

-I have no idea where we are on the course now.

-No.

-No idea.

7:11:387:11:42

'I feel completely out of my comfort zone.

7:11:427:11:45

'It feels so weird putting my trust in Iggy.

7:11:457:11:48

'She's done really well but how will she do out on the streets?'

7:11:487:11:52

Blindfold is on. I can't see anything.

7:11:547:11:57

'Out here there are many more distractions to take her

7:11:577:12:00

'mind off the job.'

7:12:007:12:01

-Here we go.

-Ready?

-Yeah.

-Forward.

-OK.

7:12:017:12:05

Iggy, forward.

7:12:057:12:08

To the crossing.

7:12:087:12:10

Oh, there's the bump so we're nearly there.

7:12:107:12:13

'Iggy started confidently and seems to be in complete control.'

7:12:137:12:17

-OK, so we're here now. So foot back.

-Yes.

7:12:177:12:20

Iggy, forward. Wow!

7:12:207:12:23

We are on the road.

7:12:237:12:24

'It's amazing to see how far Iggy has come.

7:12:247:12:27

'She is taking it in her stride and I am so proud.'

7:12:277:12:31

-Can you feel that?

-Yes, I can feel it.

-She got you across. Well done.

7:12:317:12:34

Yeah, Iggy, good girl!

7:12:347:12:36

I think she has done a great job today. Thank you so much, Kath.

7:12:367:12:39

Well done, Iggs. Good job.

7:12:397:12:41

-I was so proud of little Iggy.

-She's awesome.

7:12:447:12:46

We are about to show off how brilliant she is because, even

7:12:467:12:49

since that film, Iggy's been learning loads more new skills,

7:12:497:12:53

which we want to demonstrate today, so we're going

7:12:537:12:55

to do something called blindfolded recall.

7:12:557:12:58

Hopefully it's going to work on live television!

7:12:587:13:00

The idea is that Iggy needs to know what to do

7:13:007:13:02

and how to return to her owner safely and correctly whenever she's working.

7:13:027:13:06

-So, Rads, I'll pass Iggy to you.

-I'll chat with Iggy.

7:13:067:13:08

-This is where I blindfold you, isn't it?

-OK.

7:13:087:13:10

Let's do it here before you start to move.

7:13:107:13:12

That way you don't know where you're going.

7:13:127:13:13

This is to simulate what it might be like to have loss of sight.

7:13:137:13:16

I just feel so vulnerable. It's amazing.

7:13:167:13:18

-You know where we're walking to. Step coming up. Step now.

-OK.

7:13:187:13:21

And another one. If you face that way.

7:13:217:13:24

I'm going to face this way.

7:13:247:13:26

I don't know which way I am facing or where Iggy has gone really.

7:13:267:13:29

Where's Iggy's lead? Thank you.

7:13:297:13:30

So, the idea is Iggy should touch my legs when I call her

7:13:307:13:33

and that's how I know she has come here.

7:13:337:13:35

This is weird, presenting with this on. Right, OK. Are we ready?

7:13:357:13:39

We've all hidden. We're not here any more!

7:13:397:13:41

Iggy, you ready? Iggy! Come over!

7:13:417:13:45

Hopefully she'll come here.

7:13:457:13:48

There she is! Good girl. Round of applause for Iggy.

7:13:487:13:50

APPLAUSE

7:13:507:13:52

-Well done, Iggs.

-She's gone.

-And she's off!

7:13:527:13:54

She's gone for a little celebration jog. That's fine. She can have fun.

7:13:547:13:58

Also, well done to you guys at home.

7:13:587:14:00

As you can see, your post once again has covered our big badge wall.

7:14:007:14:04

It's looking good.

7:14:047:14:05

Do you remember, last week we had a Children in Need extravaganza?

7:14:057:14:08

Caira has really captured that moment.

7:14:087:14:11

Feast your eyes on this picture here.

7:14:117:14:13

We've got Lindsay holding the Dare To Dazzle kids there,

7:14:137:14:15

having a very good time doing their acting lesson.

7:14:157:14:17

Got me doing my splits and my gymnastics challenge.

7:14:177:14:20

We've got Barney dressed up as a superhero.

7:14:207:14:21

He was a hero for the entire day doing his challenge.

7:14:217:14:24

Also, just to the side of him, a hero mask.

7:14:247:14:27

Now it is over to you guys

7:14:277:14:29

because you have sent in over 7,000 hero masks all for Children in Need.

7:14:297:14:34

So thank you very much and well done.

7:14:347:14:36

This is the best thing that has ever been sent in by anybody

7:14:367:14:39

-in the history of the world.

-Look at that.

7:14:397:14:41

Isla from Bristol. Iggy, it's especially for you.

7:14:417:14:43

-Iggy, it's for you!

-It's a moveable Iggy.

7:14:437:14:45

It's got a movable head and she's written on the back, that she

7:14:457:14:48

can play and skip.

7:14:487:14:49

-Isla, you're a genius. I love it. Thank you.

-That is lovely.

7:14:497:14:52

Something else we love is this.

7:14:527:14:54

It's been sent in by Emily from Harrogate.

7:14:547:14:57

If I move it you can see it's a sparkly little Shelley.

7:14:577:15:00

We love a 3D send-in. Thank you.

7:15:007:15:02

If you're wondering how Shelley's doing,

7:15:027:15:04

we've got a little picture here.

7:15:047:15:05

She's just gone into hibernation.

7:15:057:15:08

She looks very cosy in that newspaper.

7:15:087:15:11

Shelley, have a nice nap

7:15:117:15:12

and we'll see you in the spring when you come back.

7:15:127:15:14

-Can I do one quick one?

-Go on.

-Grace has sent this in. Look, I want one.

7:15:147:15:18

This is me poking my head out of Big Ben in Westminster.

7:15:187:15:22

It says, "I want one. Dreams can come true."

7:15:227:15:24

Grace, thank you so much. We love hearing from you.

7:15:247:15:27

And we've got another one from Iona and Santa. Cool name, right?

7:15:277:15:30

Santa, brilliant.

7:15:307:15:32

It's this one, a huge big 3D cut-out of the badge and all of us and Iggy

7:15:327:15:37

who looks particularly adorable.

7:15:377:15:39

That's amazing. Thank you so much for sending that in.

7:15:397:15:42

Thank you to all of you who sent anything this week and it's also

7:15:427:15:45

worth pointing out that if you want to get a badge,

7:15:457:15:48

send some post to us.

7:15:487:15:49

We love hearing from you.

7:15:497:15:51

Our address is:

7:15:517:15:54

However, we are having a little bit of a delay

7:15:567:15:58

cos so many of you are sending in post to us,

7:15:587:15:59

but we are endeavouring to get it back to you ASAP.

7:15:597:16:02

Camera Two, I've got a question.

7:16:027:16:04

What do you get if you cross a gadget with a race?

7:16:047:16:07

A very happy Barney. Watch this.

7:16:077:16:10

It's taking the tech world by storm.

7:16:127:16:15

Blink and you might miss it.

7:16:167:16:19

And it's so cool.

7:16:207:16:22

Look, I'm wearing sunglasses and it's not even sunny.

7:16:227:16:25

This is drone racing.

7:16:257:16:27

I told you it was cool!

7:16:307:16:33

Drones are unmanned aerial vehicles

7:16:357:16:37

that are often used to capture amazing footage like this.

7:16:377:16:40

Gentle, dreamy shots. Lovely.

7:16:407:16:43

But when it comes to racing them, it's all about speed.

7:16:437:16:47

So, in a race, drones must complete four laps

7:16:487:16:51

of this specially-designed course.

7:16:517:16:52

They have to fly at about two metres above the ground

7:16:527:16:55

and they go very, very quickly.

7:16:557:16:56

Simply, the fastest drone wins.

7:16:567:16:59

The man in charge of the drone racing league in the UK is Nigel.

7:17:017:17:05

Drones have become very popular over the last year, 18 months

7:17:057:17:09

-and people want to race them.

-And this is a racing drone?

7:17:097:17:11

This is a racing drone, yeah.

7:17:117:17:13

Camera on the front. That's what the pilots see.

7:17:137:17:16

In the middle is the flight controller,

7:17:167:17:17

the little computer that runs everything.

7:17:177:17:19

And on the back is a battery to run the four motors and propellers.

7:17:197:17:24

They can have everything set up

7:17:247:17:26

and ready to race for less than the cost of a games console.

7:17:267:17:29

You can't just try these in your back garden.

7:17:297:17:31

-There are certain rules for drones.

-No. It's about being sensible

7:17:317:17:34

and we encourage people to come to model clubs like this one.

7:17:347:17:36

There you can learn to fly them properly.

7:17:367:17:38

Just get out there and have a go, that's the best bet.

7:17:387:17:41

But before I have a go, I need to learn to fly these things.

7:17:417:17:44

The way it is done is so awesome.

7:17:447:17:47

It's called first person view, or FPV.

7:17:477:17:51

Racers wear wraparound goggles that receive a video link from the drone.

7:17:517:17:55

Basically a drone's eye view.

7:17:557:17:58

And this is what I looks like.

7:17:587:18:00

Unbelievable!

7:18:007:18:02

And to show me how it works, Luke is one of the UK's best drone racers.

7:18:027:18:07

I'm going to watch you flying as you fly.

7:18:087:18:10

If you are going to do what I know you can do,

7:18:107:18:12

I'm going to need to sit down for this. OK, Grandad's ready.

7:18:127:18:15

So I have tuned in to Luke's feed and he is fast.

7:18:177:18:21

Oh, my goodness, that is insane.

7:18:217:18:23

It's like watching a really cool computer game.

7:18:237:18:27

Oh, mate, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

7:18:277:18:30

Can you talk me through what I am seeing here,

7:18:337:18:35

apart from my life flashing before my eyes?

7:18:357:18:38

You are seeing me go through gates about a metre off the ground

7:18:387:18:41

and probably around 40mph speeds.

7:18:417:18:44

I can go faster, but I have to land now because my battery is out.

7:18:447:18:47

That's fine by me.

7:18:477:18:48

Your battery might be out. My stomach's gone!

7:18:487:18:51

That was phenomenal. Now it is my turn to give it a go.

7:18:517:18:54

What could possibly go wrong?

7:18:547:18:56

Push forward gently.

7:18:597:19:01

-As long as you keep moving forward, it's a lot easier.

-OK.

7:19:017:19:04

-It goes up really high really quick, doesn't it?

-Yeah.

7:19:047:19:07

-Now you should be able to see us.

-Oh, this is weird.

7:19:077:19:09

This actually makes you feel a bit dizzy.

7:19:097:19:13

Oh, that was weird. I just make myself feel really sick.

7:19:137:19:17

It's hard because you have no concept at all of where you are.

7:19:177:19:20

'This is really tough.

7:19:217:19:23

'It takes a lot of practice to crack this technique.

7:19:237:19:26

'I'm struggling to keep the drone under control,

7:19:267:19:29

'let alone go around the course. Whoops!'

7:19:297:19:32

-I think I'll be better if I fly without FPV.

-Yeah.

7:19:327:19:34

I do feel a bit seasick. It's weird. It's really strange, but fun.

7:19:347:19:38

You've got to try it. You've got to give it a go.

7:19:387:19:41

So, my challenge.

7:19:417:19:43

How many laps can Luke complete in the time it takes me to do one?

7:19:437:19:47

The course is made up of four gates and has two tights bends.

7:19:477:19:52

Up for the challenge, some of Britain's best young racers,

7:19:527:19:55

Adam, Luke,

7:19:557:19:57

Lewis and me, minus the goggles.

7:19:577:20:01

Bring it on.

7:20:017:20:03

Here we go, bringing drone racing to the masses, in three, two, one, go!

7:20:067:20:10

'Luke and Adam fly off the start and leave me behind.

7:20:107:20:14

'But there's a problem for Lewis.

7:20:147:20:17

'Wipe-out!'

7:20:177:20:19

I'm going to fly over that side for now.

7:20:207:20:23

'Even without the goggles, it's not going to plan.

7:20:237:20:26

'Ah, the sun's come out!

7:20:267:20:28

'Luke is absolutely flying.

7:20:287:20:30

'I'm struggling to go under the first gate,

7:20:307:20:32

'and he's already done a lap.'

7:20:327:20:35

Go on, Luke. I'm with you, buddy.

7:20:367:20:38

'Look, a tractor. I can see my house.'

7:20:387:20:41

'Back to the real race, and Luke is clocking up the laps,

7:20:427:20:45

'and so is Adam.

7:20:457:20:48

'But then this happens.

7:20:487:20:51

'Adam is out. Let's see that again. Unlucky!

7:20:517:20:54

'That just leaves me and Luke left in it.

7:20:547:20:59

'All right, show off. Luke's even doing flips now.'

7:20:597:21:03

-Have you done a lap yet?

-I'm just on the way round now, yeah.

7:21:037:21:06

'This is it, the final bend.

7:21:067:21:08

'Luke is so fast, going under every single gate.

7:21:087:21:13

'And here comes Barney, finally landing.'

7:21:137:21:15

He finally completes his lap. It took me 20 minutes.

7:21:157:21:19

Luke did 12 laps in the time it took me to do one.

7:21:197:21:22

That's why we've got a champion on our hands.

7:21:227:21:25

So there you have it. Drone racing. It was fast, it was cool.

7:21:277:21:30

Luke did 12 laps, I did one.

7:21:307:21:32

That doesn't matter, it's all about the practice.

7:21:327:21:34

Can I borrow your winning drone, Luke, thank you?

7:21:347:21:37

I am going to have one more go. Well, two more goes.

7:21:377:21:40

I might just have three... four more goes on it.

7:21:407:21:44

I might just have a couple of...

7:21:447:21:47

I'll be back tomorrow.

7:21:477:21:49

I'll bring it back. Don't worry.

7:21:497:21:51

-He's so naughty.

-How cool are drones?

7:21:517:21:55

-Barney did return the drone to its rightful owner.

-No, I didn't!

7:21:557:21:59

He did, he did.

7:21:597:22:01

If you want to see an exclusive clip of Luke, the legend,

7:22:017:22:04

flying his drone, simply jump on to the Blue Peter website.

7:22:047:22:06

I can assure you it's definitely worth the watch.

7:22:067:22:09

Now, it is time for the moment I've been pumped about all episode.

7:22:097:22:14

That is because, about a month ago,

7:22:147:22:16

we launched our brand-new Wild Wolfblood competition,

7:22:167:22:19

which gives you at home the chance to appear in the brand-new series,

7:22:197:22:23

that's YOU on TV.

7:22:237:22:26

Over 1,700 of you stepped up to the plate.

7:22:267:22:28

The competition was so fierce. I don't know how you chose a winner.

7:22:287:22:31

On that judging panel was the creator of Wolfblood, Debbie Moon,

7:22:317:22:34

as well as Leona Vaughan, who plays Jana, and our very own Radzi.

7:22:347:22:39

I can't believe you were able to choose them.

7:22:397:22:41

It was really difficult, really tough.

7:22:417:22:43

Now it's time to reveal the official runners-up.

7:22:437:22:47

Let's step to the side, Rad. Here they are, our runners-up!

7:22:477:22:49

APPLAUSE

7:22:497:22:51

-Wow.

-Can I just say, as one of the judges,

7:22:517:22:54

we were blown away at just how good all of the entries were.

7:22:547:22:57

You guys clearly knew what Wolfblood was all about,

7:22:577:23:00

with your effort in the costumes,

7:23:007:23:01

the attention, the detail, genuinely blew our socks off.

7:23:017:23:04

Guys, well done, you should be proud of yourselves.

7:23:047:23:06

You should be because you won yourselves one of these,

7:23:067:23:09

your very own orange competition badge.

7:23:097:23:12

-And there it is, the Wolfblood magical mug. I really want one.

-I do.

7:23:127:23:17

Let's walk over this way. You can see our top entries from each category.

7:23:177:23:22

-This is the moment of truth. You ready?

-Yeah.

7:23:227:23:25

People at home are going to be so excited about this.

7:23:257:23:28

Even I feel nervous.

7:23:287:23:29

In the nine-to-ten age group, we have Myah from West Sussex.

7:23:297:23:34

In the 11-to-12 age group, we've got Ciaran, from Staffordshire.

7:23:347:23:38

Look at that face paint.

7:23:387:23:40

And the top entry in the 13-to-15 age group was Tashi from Horsham.

7:23:407:23:44

All brilliant entries. Well done, you three.

7:23:447:23:48

We had the tough job of going from our top three to just one.

7:23:487:23:54

It was a tough job, but we managed it somehow.

7:23:547:23:58

So, drumroll, please.

7:23:587:23:59

DRUMROLL

7:23:597:24:01

Our winner of the Wild Wolfblood competition is...

7:24:017:24:04

Myah!

7:24:047:24:06

WOLF HOWLS

7:24:067:24:07

APPLAUSE

7:24:077:24:09

Everything about Myah's costume, the pose, the photograph,

7:24:097:24:13

the video that she entered, we really thought was genuinely

7:24:137:24:16

fantastic and made her a truly worthy winner.

7:24:167:24:18

But that was not all. This was what happened next.

7:24:187:24:21

I've come to Sussex to meet our Wolfblood competition winner, Myah.

7:24:237:24:27

She has absolutely no idea that she has won, or that we are even here.

7:24:277:24:31

It's time to make her day.

7:24:317:24:33

Myah, hi. My name's Radzi from Blue Peter. Can I get a high-five?

7:24:417:24:46

Oh, my!

7:24:467:24:48

SHE GIGGLES

7:24:487:24:51

Are you a bit excited?

7:24:517:24:54

Out of over 1,700 applications, you won the Wild Wolfblood competition.

7:24:547:24:58

Oh, my goodness!

7:24:587:25:00

So you are going to the Wild Wolfblood set, taking your costume.

7:25:007:25:06

-Can I find out more about it?

-Yeah.

-Amazing.

7:25:067:25:09

The judges were so impressed with Myah's attention to detail

7:25:117:25:15

and her overall look,

7:25:157:25:17

from her Wolf Queen pendant to her wild hair and make-up.

7:25:177:25:20

Myah, your costume was absolutely fantastic. Tell me a bit about it.

7:25:207:25:24

Well, I just got a needle and did very untidy stitches

7:25:247:25:28

cos I'm not very good at stitching anyway,

7:25:287:25:30

so it came in handy for once!

7:25:307:25:33

But your costume wasn't clean, it was very muddy and dirty.

7:25:337:25:36

-How did you do that?

-My mum scraped her foot all over me!

7:25:367:25:41

-And you were covered in mud.

-Yeah. My brother enjoyed doing it as well.

7:25:417:25:45

I bet he did. So there's just two more things for me to do.

7:25:457:25:48

One is to give you your competition winner's badge.

7:25:487:25:52

-But there's one other message we have for you.

-What?

-Check this out.

7:25:527:25:55

Hi, Myah, it is Leona, from Wolfblood.

7:25:577:25:59

We would like to say a massive congratulations to you

7:25:597:26:02

for winning the Wolfblood competition.

7:26:027:26:04

We look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks here on set with me

7:26:047:26:07

and all the cast and crew.

7:26:077:26:08

Get practising that howl, and we'll see you soon. Bye!

7:26:087:26:11

On three, our very best howl.

7:26:117:26:13

One, two, three...

7:26:137:26:15

THEY HOWL

7:26:157:26:19

Yours was much better than mine.

7:26:197:26:21

-Well done.

-Just amazing.

-Such a lovely girl.

7:26:237:26:27

Myah, you need to be a TV presenter. You are so natural on camera.

7:26:277:26:30

You must look into it. She was amazing.

7:26:307:26:32

Can't wait to see you on set with all the Wolfblood cast

7:26:327:26:34

and congratulations to all the runners up too.

7:26:347:26:36

Now, earlier in the show, we asked, if you could film a wild animal,

7:26:367:26:40

what would it be and why?

7:26:407:26:44

I'll kick things off.

7:26:447:26:46

Brown Biscuit Puffin says,

7:26:467:26:47

"I'd be a wolf, because so many people know it as being scary

7:26:477:26:50

"but I want to see what it REALLY does."

7:26:507:26:52

-I like your thinking.

-Camera two.

7:26:527:26:54

Peach Super Cow - "I would chase a penguin forever anywhere.

7:26:547:26:57

"If you had a penguin in the Sahara, I would call it lost."

7:26:577:27:00

-Oh, yes!

-I like that.

7:27:007:27:03

Blush Tool Chipmunk says, "I would film a deadly shark

7:27:037:27:06

"so you can see all the fish it eats in slow motion."

7:27:067:27:09

That would properly scare me. I would not like to do that.

7:27:097:27:12

Scorpion must love the hunt because they say,

7:27:127:27:15

"I'd go to any jungle so I can see waterfalls, giant trees

7:27:157:27:18

"and animals but I most want to see a monkey.

7:27:187:27:21

-"They are my favourite animal. I want one!"

-Hey, that's my line.

7:27:217:27:24

Purple Sewing Puffin says, "I'd film dolphins both underwater and

7:27:247:27:29

"leaping out of the water,

7:27:297:27:30

"and I would love to use a slow-motion camera."

7:27:307:27:32

Wouldn't we all? I love stuff like that.

7:27:327:27:34

Thank you so much for getting in touch.

7:27:347:27:36

We've had some e-mails in and people have been saying,

7:27:367:27:38

-"Barney, your jokes are amazing."

-A-hem!

7:27:387:27:40

That's true. It definitely happened.

7:27:407:27:42

So I have put three of my favourite jokes online

7:27:427:27:45

on the Blue Peter Fan Club page.

7:27:457:27:47

Go and have a look and vote for your favourite out of the three.

7:27:477:27:49

-Are you laughing at your own jokes?

-Yes, they are hilarious.

7:27:497:27:52

That's all we've got time for this week.

7:27:527:27:55

Make sure you're watching next week because the show is just as good.

7:27:557:27:58

I have an adventure with lots of water and lots of air.

7:27:587:28:02

That looks so cool.

7:28:027:28:04

As well as that, we've got lovely Greg Foote in the studio.

7:28:047:28:06

-He's going to be making a cloud.

-No?

-Yes, he is.

-Can't wait.

7:28:067:28:10

Also, we will be making this, the BP Christmas card 2015.

7:28:107:28:14

Everyone wants one of these. You'll find out why on next week's show.

7:28:147:28:17

Have a great week, everyone. See you then. Bye!

7:28:177:28:19

-See you next week. Bye! Say bye, Iggy.

-RUFF!

7:28:197:28:23

We announce the winner of our once-in-a-lifetime Wolfblood competition - one viewer will get to appear in the new series! We also catch up with Iggy's intensive training where she takes Lindsey on a blindfolded walk, and Barney tries his hands at the new sport of drone racing.
