BLUE PETER THRILLS SPILLS AND SHEEP CBC A416N/01 BRD000000

2:00:002:00:00

Today's live Blue Peter is a battle of strength and willpower

6:02:186:02:22

featuring the England tug-of-war team,

6:02:226:02:24

Hacker T Dog and friends, The Tide

6:02:246:02:27

and these two beefcakes.

6:02:276:02:29

Now that's impressive. Oh, look at the mess...

6:02:296:02:32

APPLAUSE

6:02:476:02:50

Hello! Hi!

6:02:506:02:52

Camera one, camera two.

6:02:526:02:53

How you doing? Welcome to the show. It's a live show.

6:02:536:02:56

As you can see, Lindsey is not here this week,

6:02:566:02:58

which means that we can be naughty.

6:02:586:03:00

RADZI LAUGHS

6:03:006:03:02

Oh, yes. No, she's been fired for being too funny. I do the jokes.

6:03:026:03:05

I'm only kidding.

6:03:056:03:06

She's back next week and we can't wait to see her back here,

6:03:066:03:08

sharing the joy with us.

6:03:086:03:10

We're going to make up for it, though, without her being here

6:03:106:03:12

with all the cool stuff that's on the show. Check it out.

6:03:126:03:15

I train for a very, very fun challenge indeed.

6:03:156:03:17

It involves water, it involves skis and me doing that.

6:03:176:03:20

That's going to be funny.

6:03:206:03:22

And also later on, find out about this really rare breed of sheep.

6:03:226:03:25

It's so un-baa-lievable.

6:03:256:03:28

I like my own gags.

6:03:286:03:29

Now, then, let's kick off the show in the right way

6:03:296:03:32

with a performance, of course.

6:03:326:03:33

Fresh from sunny LA, it's Click My Fingers,

6:03:336:03:36

make some noise for The Tide.

6:03:366:03:38

APPLAUSE

6:03:386:03:39

# If only I could click my fingers

6:03:446:03:47

# I'd make all of your wishes come true

6:03:486:03:51

# But I'm not a magician

6:03:516:03:52

# I can't make a grey sky seem blue

6:03:546:03:57

# I know you're feeling anxious

6:03:576:04:00

# Saying to me, "Everything's OK"

6:04:006:04:03

# You hide it like an actress

6:04:036:04:05

# With nothing but a smile on your face

6:04:056:04:09

# Lay your head on my shoulder

6:04:106:04:12

# I want you to know

6:04:126:04:13

# I'll stay with you forever as we both get old

6:04:136:04:16

# Forget about money, we don't need the gold, no

6:04:166:04:20

# And I don't have superpowers

6:04:206:04:24

# But if I did, I'd use them for good

6:04:246:04:27

# And I would click my fingers

6:04:276:04:30

# And make all of your wishes come true

6:04:306:04:33

# Cos whatever, whatever you go through

6:04:336:04:37

6:04:376:04:40

# And whatever, whatever you go through

6:04:406:04:43

# Whatever, whatever you go through

6:04:466:04:49

# Don't be scared

6:04:496:04:51

# And whatever, whatever you go through

6:04:516:04:54

# I'll be there

6:04:546:04:56

# Now let go of your troubles

6:04:586:05:00

# Don't you know that I'm here to help?

6:05:006:05:03

# Tell me 'bout your struggles

6:05:036:05:06

# See, you don't have to struggle by yourself

6:05:066:05:09

# I know you're feeling anxious

6:05:096:05:12

# Saying to me, "Everything's OK"

6:05:126:05:15

# You hide it like a actress

6:05:156:05:17

# And whatever, whatever you go through, girl

6:05:516:05:56

# You just got to let me know-ow-ow

6:06:496:06:51

Levi, Austin and Drew, The Tide, so good to have you on the show.

6:06:546:06:57

-Thanks for having us.

-It's a stomping track, as well.

6:06:576:07:00

Harmonies were bang on, there, boys, by the way.

6:07:006:07:02

Let's talk about your year you've had, Levi,

6:07:026:07:04

-it's been a really busy one, hasn't it?

-Crazy.

6:07:046:07:06

Tell me about it. What's been going on?

6:07:066:07:08

Well, toured the world with The Vamps, played arenas, it's amazing.

6:07:086:07:11

-You've just signed to The Vamps' new label as well.

-Yeah.

6:07:116:07:14

That's pretty exciting stuff.

6:07:146:07:15

So do you have to write an album now?

6:07:156:07:17

Yeah, we're working on an album right now

6:07:176:07:19

and it's getting close to done, so we're really excited.

6:07:196:07:21

Amazing. Thanks for performing the song for us.

6:07:216:07:23

It's wicked to hear you.

6:07:236:07:24

-Stick around, we've got a bit of fun later.

-Yeah.

6:07:246:07:26

You saw at the start of the show, there were two beefcakes

6:07:266:07:29

in particular. You three look quite beefcakey as well.

6:07:296:07:31

-We're doing a tug-of-war later. You up for that?

-Definitely.

6:07:316:07:34

Beautiful. Fantastic. Thank you very much, boys.

6:08:296:08:31

Hi, Lindz.

6:08:316:08:32

I need to get my CBBC account sorted. Bye.

6:08:326:08:34

6:08:466:08:48

so that means you could have a shout-out from The Tide.

6:08:486:08:51

-Yeah!

-Maybe, maybe...

-You could have a shout-out from Hacker T Dog.

6:08:516:08:54

-That's me, cockers!

-Mate, it's so good to see you.

6:08:546:08:56

I thought I smelled beef paste.

6:08:566:08:58

-Hiya, Barney Harwood. Are you well, me old cocker?

-I'm all right, son.

6:08:586:09:01

It's always good to see you on the show. Thank you for being here.

6:09:016:09:04

-Lovely, that.

-You could also get a shout-out from Radzi.

-Who's he?

6:09:046:09:06

Well, WHERE is he, more to the point.

6:09:066:09:08

-I don't know.

-Where's he gone?

6:09:086:09:11

Barney, I am here, actually, to see something that I haven't

6:09:116:09:14

tried since school, but never like this.

6:09:146:09:18

Pull!

6:09:186:09:19

I give to you the England Under-18 Army Cadet Tug-of-war Squad

6:09:196:09:24

and, in case you don't know what that is, to help explain more,

6:09:246:09:27

we have judge Ray Fray-Smith. Ray, lovely to meet you, sir.

6:09:276:09:30

-Pleased to meet you, sir.

-This looks like a real competition here,

6:09:306:09:33

-but how do you compete in tug-of-war?

-It's a simple sport.

6:09:336:09:36

We have a rope and we have two equal teams,

6:09:366:09:38

seven pullers and an anchorman, and they pull

6:09:386:09:40

a distance of four metres and the winning team wins. Simple as that.

6:09:406:09:43

You can see a lot of hard work goes into this, a lot of strength.

6:09:436:09:46

How important is strength?

6:09:466:09:47

Strength is important, endurance and stamina and a big heart.

6:09:476:09:52

-A big...?

-It certainly helps.

6:09:526:09:54

And those are the kind of words I guess you'd associate

6:09:546:09:56

-with the Olympic Games.

-Yes.

-Is at an Olympic sport?

6:09:566:09:58

Unfortunately, since the 1920s,

6:09:586:10:00

tug-of-war doesn't feature in the Olympics,

6:10:006:10:02

but I'm very pleased to say that Great Britain are the

6:10:026:10:05

reigning Olympic Champions and the City of London Police

6:10:056:10:09

represented England and we have the gold medal from the 1920s.

6:10:096:10:12

-That's the actual one?

-It is indeed, yeah.

6:10:126:10:14

That's the actual Olympic gold medal we won essentially a century ago?

6:10:146:10:18

-Yes.

-What a privilege that is. Well, Ray, you've inspired me.

6:10:186:10:21

-Can I give it a go?

-Certainly. I've got Damien, the team captain.

6:10:216:10:24

-Damien, lovely to meet you, my friend.

-How are you?

6:10:246:10:26

So, how do I do this?

6:10:266:10:27

Basically, tug-of-war, there's a couple of steps.

6:10:276:10:29

-You have to pick up the rope, take the strain steady and pull.

-OK.

6:10:296:10:32

All right, so at the moment,

6:10:326:10:33

we're going to start you with picking up the rope.

6:10:336:10:36

-I can do that bit.

-OK, everyone!

6:10:366:10:38

-Yes.

-So if you put both hands by the blue tape.

-Yes, like that.

6:10:386:10:42

Yep, that's perfect. And you want to get your hands by your waist.

6:10:426:10:46

-Take the strain...

-OK, that's it. OK?

-OK.

6:10:466:10:49

And now we're going to... Basically,

6:10:496:10:51

we're going to show you how to get steady for the actual pulling.

6:10:516:10:55

-Steady...

-So now you're going to make sure that...

6:10:556:10:59

-You're going to get a bit lower.

-Yeah.

-That's it.

6:10:596:11:01

And then you're going to, basically, when you push off, you're going

6:11:016:11:04

to push with all the force on the front of your toes.

6:11:046:11:07

-Gotcha. OK.

-Pull!

6:11:076:11:08

Whoa!

6:11:086:11:10

There's a lot of force in this. OK. OK... We might be, er...

6:11:106:11:14

We might be losing this one, but that's fine,

6:11:146:11:16

that's absolutely fine, cos it's taking part that counts. OK.

6:11:166:11:21

-Is this good, Damien?

-Yeah. Basically, what you want to do is,

6:11:216:11:24

-you want to slide back with your feet?

-Slide back? Yes!

6:11:246:11:27

I mean, I wanted to do that, this is helping. Definitely helping!

6:11:276:11:31

-Helping...

-WHISTLE BLOWS

6:11:316:11:34

That's, er... Just, er... Probably going to leave that there, actually.

6:11:346:11:38

I'm glad I got that practice in cos I'm going to need it later on.

6:11:386:11:40

We're going to do it again, this time with a few famous faces.

6:11:406:11:44

And embarrassing myself with this rope has reminded me of

6:11:446:11:46

a challenge I did earlier on in the year.

6:11:466:11:49

HE PANTS

6:11:496:11:51

The year is 1922 and American Ralph Stevenson has a dream.

6:11:516:11:57

He wants to recreate the thrill of mountain skiing, but on water.

6:11:576:12:02

He takes a couple of wooden boards and a clothesline out onto a lake.

6:12:026:12:07

And, towed by his brother, he tries lots of different techniques until

6:12:076:12:12

he leans back and lifts the toes of the wooden boards out of the water.

6:12:126:12:18

And waterskiing as we know it today is born.

6:12:186:12:20

And thank goodness good old Ralph Stevenson had that dream, because

6:12:246:12:28

if not, I wouldn't be about to take on my next Blue Peter challenge.

6:12:286:12:31

And I wouldn't be getting in that cold reservoir,

6:12:316:12:34

being...dragged by a speedboat...

6:12:346:12:36

with pieces of wood under my feet...

6:12:366:12:39

Ah, thank goodness(!)

6:12:396:12:41

And the man who's going to show me the ropes, or rope,

6:12:446:12:46

is waterskiing coach Nick.

6:12:466:12:49

Nick, I know I'm going to be waterskiing,

6:12:496:12:51

but what will I actually be doing today?

6:12:516:12:53

You're going to be having great fun.

6:12:536:12:55

Like riding your bike downhill really fast.

6:12:556:12:57

-That's what it's going to be like?

-You'll have a thrill,

6:12:576:12:59

-a great time.

-How is it going to look like today?

6:12:596:13:01

What will I start with and how will it go through?

6:13:016:13:03

We're going to start you on what we call a training boom,

6:13:036:13:05

which is basically a big stick attached to the side of the boat,

6:13:056:13:08

then we're going to progress you onto the rope.

6:13:086:13:11

The rope's more fun, but it takes a lot more balance.

6:13:116:13:15

'So, first things first,

6:13:156:13:17

'Nick just wants me to stand up holding the boom pole.

6:13:176:13:20

'That sounds simple enough.'

6:13:206:13:21

Bit further, so you're between the two cables.

6:13:216:13:23

In case you're wondering, it's freezing.

6:13:236:13:26

Whoa!

6:13:276:13:30

'Yes, the water is ice cold,

6:13:306:13:32

'the wind is blowing in my face

6:13:326:13:33

'and I can't see a thing, but I'm stood up!'

6:13:336:13:36

Yes!

6:13:396:13:40

Yes! I think I'm doing it!

6:13:406:13:42

This is good fun!

6:13:446:13:46

He's doing really good. I think we've got a natural.

6:13:466:13:48

I'm standing up!

6:13:486:13:50

'For a first attempt, I think I did OK...

6:13:506:13:54

'but then I see 11-year-old Lucy.'

6:13:546:13:56

Lucy Roberts is the British Under-12 Champion and she also happens

6:14:016:14:05

to be the proud owner of a Blue Peter sport badge.

6:14:056:14:09

So who better to help me out?

6:14:096:14:10

Lucy, I really enjoyed working on the boom pole.

6:14:126:14:15

Is there anything else I can do?

6:14:166:14:18

Yeah, I think if you want a bit of a challenge,

6:14:186:14:20

we can try and get you up behind the back of the boat if you want to.

6:14:206:14:23

-On the actual rope?!

-On the actual rope!

6:14:236:14:26

-On the ACTUAL rope?!

-It's not a pretend rope.

6:14:266:14:29

HE LAUGHS

6:14:296:14:32

'Using the rope is much harder because there's

6:14:326:14:34

'no pole to support myself, so all my weight is on the water.'

6:14:346:14:38

Argh! I'm trying hard to stay still!

6:14:446:14:48

Whoa! Whoa! I can't stand up! Whoa!

6:14:486:14:52

'I'm literally putting everything I've got into trying to stand up.

6:14:526:14:56

'It's so hard!'

6:14:566:14:57

Yes!

6:14:596:15:01

Oh-ho!

6:15:016:15:02

I don't know what this looks like on camera...

6:15:036:15:06

but from where I'm looking, it's very intense.

6:15:066:15:09

'This is tough. Time for some more advice from Lucy.'

6:15:116:15:15

-Should I do anything differently?

-Well, you took a bit of a long time!

6:15:156:15:19

LAUGHTER

6:15:196:15:20

Just try and do it. Just do it quick.

6:15:206:15:23

'Brutal! But with more training under the watchful eye of Lucy...'

6:15:236:15:28

Stand up!

6:15:286:15:29

Whoo!

6:15:296:15:31

'..I manage to speed things up.'

6:15:316:15:33

I think that was really good.

6:15:336:15:35

'As I reach the end of my first session,

6:15:356:15:37

'I feel I'm really making progress. But then...'

6:15:376:15:41

Whoa!

6:15:416:15:42

I have absolutely loved it today, which is a good job,

6:15:466:15:51

because I'm going to have to get used to these water-skis.

6:15:516:15:55

My challenge is to perform

6:15:556:15:57

at the British Junior Water-ski Championships.

6:15:576:16:00

I need to put together a routine of tricks that I'll perform in

6:16:006:16:03

front of a panel of judges and some of the best young talent in

6:16:036:16:08

the country, and I've only got a few months in which to do it,

6:16:086:16:12

so my training moves quickly, and I get very used to hitting the water.

6:16:126:16:16

Even though it's a real challenge, I'm loving being pushed.

6:16:216:16:25

But things start to get complicated.

6:16:286:16:30

So, so difficult.

6:16:336:16:34

Balance and concentration and I haven't had much luck so far.

6:16:346:16:38

Balance and concentration are exactly what I need if

6:16:396:16:42

I'm going to pull off the tricks in my routine.

6:16:426:16:44

Like spinning -

6:16:466:16:47

turning on the water will be part of all my trick manoeuvres,

6:16:476:16:51

so I need to get it right, but with just weeks left,

6:16:516:16:55

I've got a problem...

6:16:556:16:57

-Going this side, clockwise, that's my weakness.

-Yeah.

6:17:006:17:04

That's the one, when if I am going to fall over or catch an edge

6:17:046:17:07

or get it wrong, it's going to be on that side.

6:17:076:17:10

-What can I do about that?

-Practise.

6:17:106:17:12

I've come a long way, but if I'm going to pull this challenge off,

6:17:146:17:18

I've still got some way to go.

6:17:186:17:20

Nick and Lucy are legends, by the way.

6:17:246:17:26

-That is an incredible sport.

-I would like to point out

6:17:266:17:28

no Radzis were hurt during the making of that film.

6:17:286:17:31

-Now, it's not funny to see somebody falling over...

-No!

-..in water,

6:17:316:17:34

it's hilarious,

6:17:346:17:36

so we've put loads of clips together for you to go and check out online.

6:17:366:17:39

Radzi's epic waterski fails. That is my favourite photo of you ever.

6:17:396:17:44

Head to the website and go and check out some epic fails.

6:17:446:17:47

-Right, then.

-Well, to see how I got on at the actual championships,

6:17:476:17:50

-watch next week's show.

-BP big badge wall is right here.

6:17:506:17:54

I'm going to start off with Matthew from Maidstone.

6:17:546:17:56

This is a sign that says Poo Bleater.

6:17:566:17:58

This was for the Roald Dahl 100th anniversary,

6:17:586:18:01

and that is Gobblefunk for Blue Peter. Matthew, thank you very much.

6:18:016:18:04

You've got yourself your very own silver BP badge.

6:18:046:18:06

-Well done.

-Rebecca from Gloucestershire

6:18:066:18:09

you are incredible.

6:18:096:18:11

This is when I broke the world record for the most number of

6:18:116:18:14

straws in my hair. The effort you've gone to, the detail, perfect.

6:18:146:18:17

-Thank you very much.

-It's hard to know who's who there.

6:18:176:18:20

Monica from London has sent this.

6:18:206:18:21

It is an explosion box. Is it going to make an explosion noise?

6:18:216:18:24

-I hope so.

-OK, here we go.

6:18:246:18:26

EXPLOSION! BOTH: Whoa!

6:18:266:18:28

That was amazing. How did you do that, Monica?

6:18:286:18:31

Inside, you can see there is some fire and there is

6:18:316:18:33

a fire truck fighting the fire, and that is because it is to

6:18:336:18:36

celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.

6:18:366:18:39

Monica, you're a genius, thank you.

6:18:396:18:40

On top is your badge, on its way to you. Well done.

6:18:406:18:43

Lexi from Newport, you know how to make something beautiful.

6:18:436:18:46

Feast your eyes. Look at the array of colour.

6:18:466:18:48

Shelley is very happy, saying, "Look at the beautiful sunset."

6:18:486:18:52

-Lexi, thank you very much, indeed.

-Really quickly,

6:18:526:18:54

my favourite thing that I have been sent for a long time.

6:18:546:18:56

Sophie, I love you, this is my favourite jet ever, it's the T1.

6:18:566:18:59

Normally, I'd say I want one, but "I've got one," courtesy of Sophie.

6:18:596:19:03

Congratulations, you've got a badge. Keep sending us your stuff.

6:19:036:19:06

That's not all we want to hear from you because, my friends,

6:19:066:19:08

it is that time of year again.

6:19:086:19:11

Children In Need 2016 is almost here and we want you to do...

6:19:136:19:17

-Did someone say goo?

-Oh, Radz, it's "do" your thing.

-Oh.

6:19:176:19:23

-You could make a cake.

-With a special ingredient.

6:19:236:19:27

Goo.

6:19:276:19:28

-You could put on a fancy dress costume.

-By wearing goo.

-No, Radz.

6:19:286:19:33

Or you could do a sponsored silence.

6:19:336:19:36

So, whatever you are doing for Children In Need,

6:19:406:19:42

we want to know about it.

6:19:426:19:43

All you have to do is go on the Blue Peter website,

6:19:436:19:45

print out your template, and send us your...

6:19:456:19:48

-Goo!

-Yes.

-Get creative.

6:19:496:19:52

Decorate your goo, cut it out and send it to us, along with the pledge

6:19:526:19:55

slip, and tell us what you are doing to raise money for Children In Need.

6:19:556:19:59

When you have done that, the address you need is...

6:19:596:20:05

We want to cover the entire Blue Peter studio in your goo

6:20:056:20:08

for the Children In Need special.

6:20:086:20:09

Send it to us, please, by the 16th of November.

6:20:096:20:12

-So, go on and do your thing for Children In Need.

-Yeah, "goo" on.

6:20:126:20:17

Children In Need 2016 is well under way

6:20:196:20:22

so make sure you get in touch and send us your goo, please.

6:20:226:20:25

Barney, enough of all this goo chat.

6:20:256:20:27

I'm in charge now, because we're about to play every dog's

6:20:276:20:30

-favourite game. Yes!

-Go on, then.

6:20:306:20:33

-Tug of rope! Tug-of-rope!

-It's tug-of-war.

6:20:336:20:36

Silence! Anyway, let's meet the teams.

6:20:366:20:39

In white, the under-18s England tug-of-war squad,

6:20:396:20:43

-joined by Barney Harwood...

-Hello.

-..from Bear Behaving Badly.

6:20:436:20:47

They've also got Austin, Drew, and Levi from the Tide.

6:20:476:20:51

-Are you all right, Austin?

-Yeah, how are you doing?

6:20:516:20:53

Very well, thanks, me old cocker. Are you having a lovely time so far?

6:20:536:20:57

-Yeah, I'm having some fun, man.

-That won't last long, my old son.

6:20:576:21:00

And looking to pull them the other way are the blue team.

6:21:006:21:03

THEY WHOOP AND CHEER

6:21:036:21:06

All right, all right, give us a minute.

6:21:066:21:08

-They've got Radzi from Blue Peter.

-Yeah!

-Don't let that hold you back.

6:21:086:21:12

But look closely, we've got Match Of The Day Kickabout's Ben.

6:21:126:21:15

-All right, Ben?

-Thanks, Hacker, I'm good, how are you?

6:21:156:21:18

-I'm very well, thanks, are you looking forward to it?

-Very much so.

6:21:186:21:22

That's the most I've ever spoken to him.

6:21:226:21:24

And also, we've got CBBC HQ's Lauren and Karim.

6:21:246:21:26

THEY CHEER

6:21:266:21:28

-Come on, the blues!

-Come on, HQ!

-Come on, HQ, indeed.

6:21:286:21:33

Teams, are you ready?

6:21:336:21:36

THEY LAUGH

6:21:366:21:37

In that case... Oh, me ear's fell over. Ray! Ray, the judge!

6:21:376:21:41

-Raymond! Ray!

-Hello.

-Ray!

6:21:416:21:43

-Hello.

-I like your hat, Ray, it's nice that.

-Thank you.

6:21:436:21:47

-Did you not get one to fit?

-THEY LAUGH

6:21:476:21:49

Now, Ray, why have you got such a big whistle?

6:21:496:21:52

So the teams can hear me.

6:21:526:21:54

-Give us a quick blast of it before we start, go on.

-I'll do my best.

6:21:546:21:57

-HE BLOWS WHISTLE

-Move it on, yeah. Good thinking.

6:21:576:22:00

In that case, Ray the judge,

6:22:006:22:02

wave your arms in the air like you just don't care.

6:22:026:22:05

-Teams, are you ready? Blue team, are you ready?

-BLUE TEAM: YEAH!

6:22:056:22:08

-White team, are you ready?

-Yeah, we're ready.

-Pick up the rope.

6:22:086:22:11

Pick up the rope!

6:22:116:22:13

Take the strain!

6:22:136:22:14

Taking the strain.

6:22:146:22:16

This way, blue team. No cheating.

6:22:166:22:18

-Come on, blue team.

-Sorry. Sorry, Mum.

6:22:186:22:21

-She's not watching, Radz.

-Ready! Pull!

6:22:216:22:24

Look, there. They're all leaning back now.

6:22:246:22:27

That is the classic position to be in.

6:22:276:22:30

Now that team have got to pull that team over a line or summat.

6:22:306:22:35

I don't quite see the point of this game. But they like it.

6:22:356:22:40

-And if they like it, that's good enough for me.

-Come on!

6:22:406:22:43

Oh, look, the whites are winning. The white team winning.

6:22:436:22:46

I think it must be Austin. Austin is doing all the work here.

6:22:466:22:50

There is someone's feet. There, there's some feet.

6:22:506:22:53

There's Radzi there.

6:22:536:22:55

-Not again!

-Radzi, there, leaning back.

6:22:556:22:58

THEY CHEER

6:22:586:22:59

Well done. Ray! Ray, who won?

6:22:596:23:03

I'm pleased to announce the white team won.

6:23:036:23:05

The white team won, then.

6:23:056:23:08

THEY CHEER

6:23:086:23:10

-The white team, then, named after Barney's hair.

-Thank you very much.

6:23:106:23:13

-Well done.

-Thank you very much to all of the under-18s

6:23:136:23:17

army cadet squads for coming and showing us how it's done.

6:23:176:23:20

Very impressive stuff.

6:23:206:23:22

Now, if you want to earn your BP sport badge like my pal

6:23:226:23:25

Hacker here, you've only got until tomorrow to post it to us.

6:23:256:23:28

Go to the website, print off the application form,

6:23:286:23:30

there are three sections,

6:23:306:23:31

Just fill them out and then send them to us, please.

6:23:316:23:34

And you can get your very own BP sports badge.

6:23:346:23:36

Whilst you are there, why don't you nominate

6:23:366:23:38

your Young Sports Personality of the Year.

6:23:386:23:40

It can be a friend, a family member, or even just your sporting idol.

6:23:406:23:43

You don't have to choose Radzi Chinyanganya but the option's there.

6:23:436:23:46

-Now, Hacker, name your favourite animal.

-Ocelot.

-No, not ocelot.

6:23:466:23:49

-A furry one.

-A sheep.

-Yes, well done, he got it in two.

6:23:496:23:52

That's not worth a prize, but this film might be.

6:23:526:23:55

Meet the Loaghtan,

6:23:596:24:01

a breed of sheep known for having four distinctive horns.

6:24:016:24:04

They are pretty rare and native to the Isle of Man,

6:24:046:24:07

so that is exactly where I have come.

6:24:076:24:10

They are so beloved by the residents here, they have actually put

6:24:106:24:13

the image of the Loaghtan on the back of their pennies.

6:24:136:24:16

At one time, there were less than 50 of these sheep left, but now, thanks

6:24:166:24:20

to the work of people like Nigel here, there are well over 1,000.

6:24:206:24:24

Come on, girls.

6:24:246:24:27

Nigel, tell me about the Loaghtan. They're gorgeous, aren't they?

6:24:276:24:30

Yeah, absolutely fantastic. They are just so beautifully adapted,

6:24:306:24:33

they can look after themselves,

6:24:336:24:35

they'll eat anything, literally anything. They're a hardy sheep.

6:24:356:24:38

But even the hardiest of sheep need a haircut.

6:24:386:24:41

And these Loaghtans are due a serious snip.

6:24:416:24:44

I'm going to lend a hand but before we can commence the cutting,

6:24:446:24:47

we need to build a pen.

6:24:476:24:49

We'll put a gate across here which will hold them in here.

6:24:506:24:53

We'll have gates on four sides, and once they're in a small area,

6:24:536:24:55

they're easier caught.

6:24:556:24:57

Pen built, time to round them up. Cue the comedy music.

6:24:576:25:01

COMEDY MUSIC

6:25:016:25:05

-Right.

-Right, talk me through what I need to do.

6:25:076:25:10

-Walk round behind them and talk to them nicely.

-Come on, guys.

6:25:106:25:14

You're going to get a lovely haircut. I was thinking a perm.

6:25:146:25:17

Right, we've got those guys in. This is good, this is good, this is good.

6:25:176:25:21

'Great dancing, Nigel. Yep, don't miss that one.'

6:25:216:25:24

That was actually pretty well done, wasn't it?

6:25:256:25:28

Once penned, it's time to trim, with sheep shearer Jess.

6:25:296:25:33

Now, obviously, when you go to the hairdressers,

6:25:336:25:35

you sit in a nice, comfy chair, you know you're there to have your

6:25:356:25:38

hair cut, and you get a shampoo and everything, you can read a magazine.

6:25:386:25:41

Sheep aren't like humans, in that sense.

6:25:416:25:43

They don't just sit and pay attention.

6:25:436:25:45

-No, they don't know what is going on.

-OK.

6:25:456:25:46

We try and do it as quickly as possible,

6:25:466:25:48

keep them moving so they don't get bored.

6:25:486:25:50

-Sure.

-And it is over in no time.

6:25:506:25:53

But before I can get stuck in,

6:25:546:25:55

Jess has to show me the correct shearing technique.

6:25:556:25:58

So the sheep can't run away, they're sat on their bottom.

6:25:586:26:02

You start with the belly. That would tickle. Then the back.

6:26:026:26:06

And finally the neck.

6:26:066:26:08

-And that's all there is to it.

-As easy as that?

-Yes.

6:26:086:26:11

All right, then, here we go. Let's, erm... Let's do it.

6:26:116:26:16

It's all right, just a trim. Hello.

6:26:186:26:21

If you want to just make that straight to this leg here.

6:26:216:26:24

So, from there, just a swipe down to there, that's it.

6:26:246:26:27

'Now, with my carefully manicured beard,

6:26:276:26:29

'you'd think this would be a breeze. But trying to trim

6:26:296:26:32

'a Loaghtan that's not a big fan of the hairdresser is not easy.'

6:26:326:26:35

That's it, keep going.

6:26:356:26:37

'It's just those tricky, hard-to-reach areas left.'

6:26:376:26:40

There you go. Just go down towards the tail now.

6:26:406:26:44

-That's it.

-That's it.

-Perfect.

-Beautiful.

6:26:446:26:47

'Ta-da! Looking sharp, my friend.'

6:26:476:26:50

-She looks like a happy customer.

-Definitely.

6:26:506:26:52

-What do you reckon for a first time?

-Very good, yes.

6:26:526:26:55

It's all down to the teacher. Jess, thanks very much.

6:26:556:26:58

Now, I've got to find out what happens when you've got all

6:26:586:27:01

this stuff off the sheep. What you do with it?

6:27:016:27:03

Susan and her grandson Tristan are local experts in taking

6:27:046:27:08

Loaghtan wool and turning it into clothing,

6:27:086:27:10

and if there is one thing I love, it's knitwear.

6:27:106:27:13

Ah, good times.

6:27:196:27:21

Freshly sheared wool is spun on a wheel to turn it into

6:27:216:27:24

a long string called a yarn.

6:27:246:27:26

This yarn can then be turned into a lovely woolly jumper.

6:27:266:27:30

-Oh, have I broke it? I think I'll leave this to the experts.

-Right.

6:27:306:27:33

Whilst it's a bit advanced for me, it's fascinating to see

6:27:336:27:36

what can be done with the Loaghtan's prize wool.

6:27:366:27:39

I really enjoyed today. That's been really productive.

6:27:396:27:42

We've sheared a sheep in the morning, we've taken the wool

6:27:426:27:44

and seen how we can make it into different things,

6:27:446:27:46

I think we've all learned a really nice break.

6:27:466:27:49

-So, a cup of tea.

-Oh, Barney, I'm so sorry.

6:27:496:27:51

We've got another 500 sheep that need shearing over there.

6:27:516:27:54

No slacking yet. Things to do.
