Quick - it's about to start! Come on!

0:00:030:00:05

-Sorry!

-Hurry up!

-I was getting the popcorn. Here you are.

0:00:050:00:07

-Oh, hand it out.

-I've got my drink.

0:00:070:00:09

Where's the remote?

0:00:090:00:11

Oh, there we go. I'm so excited for this.

0:00:110:00:13

Bring it on. I can't wait. What are we watching?

0:00:130:00:15

The best bits of 2016.

0:00:150:00:16

Three, two, one...

0:00:160:00:18

-Hello...

-Hi!

-..and welcome to Blue Peter.

0:00:340:00:38

I've eaten too much popcorn already.

0:00:380:00:39

-I'm stuffed.

-Radzi, stop drinking all of that.

0:00:390:00:41

-Stop drinking my drinks.

-They're now empty.

0:00:410:00:43

Well, 2016 was such a busy year for us.

0:00:430:00:46

So much so, we've taken all our favourite bits

0:00:460:00:48

and just put them together, my friends.

0:00:480:00:50

And your bits, too, look - Madia sent in this book.

0:00:500:00:53

-Stop eating popcorn, now.

-I love popcorn. It's all about Blue Peter.

0:00:530:00:56

There's lots about our challenges in there.

0:00:560:00:58

She also wants to say thank you for Reading. She must love it there(!)

0:00:580:01:01

It says, "thank you for reading." I'm only joking. Well done.

0:01:010:01:04

Silver Badge on its way to you.

0:01:040:01:05

Speaking of challenges, I've got to say one of my faves of 2016

0:01:050:01:09

-has got to be when we did our wing walking challenge.

-Yes!

0:01:090:01:11

Passing the baton between two planes.

0:01:110:01:14

-That was incredible.

-Incredible.

-Best day.

-That was pretty awesome.

0:01:140:01:17

I think my favourite has to be the cycle challenge, with Sir Chris Hoy.

0:01:170:01:20

-Yes!

-What a legend that man is!

0:01:200:01:22

There's also been lots of water-based challenges.

0:01:220:01:24

Like when I did my water-skiing challenge,

0:01:240:01:26

and I actually had to perform tricks

0:01:260:01:28

at the British Youth Water Ski Championships.

0:01:280:01:30

-That was hard.

-As well as that, I took part in the Cowes Regatta,

0:01:300:01:33

with Team Invictus, which was such an honour. It was so much fun,

0:01:330:01:37

but it was hard work trying to keep that boat upright.

0:01:370:01:40

-That's because of all the cows in the boat!

-Mh-hm?

-Mh-hm.

0:01:400:01:42

-Not that kind of cows' regatta.

-Stop it.

0:01:420:01:44

Anyway, my favourite was the tin bath race,

0:01:440:01:46

because I was supposed to be racing in a tin bath,

0:01:460:01:48

but I spent most of my time out of it and in the water.

0:01:480:01:50

I've got to say, I think the challenge that sticks out the most,

0:01:500:01:52

when it comes to water-based 2016 challenges...

0:01:520:01:55

-Water-skiing.

-..has got to be Wave Runner.

-Ah.

0:01:550:01:57

-That was just incredible.

-It was awesome.

-It was tough.

0:01:570:02:00

It was massive, but it was amazing.

0:02:000:02:02

Check this out.

0:02:020:02:04

I'm going to attempt to run across that, the Irish Sea.

0:02:040:02:08

I'll need to train harder than I've ever trained before,

0:02:150:02:19

working with an elite team of specialists.

0:02:190:02:22

Keep driving! Keep driving!

0:02:220:02:23

Can I conquer the sea

0:02:230:02:26

and find a way to walk on water?

0:02:260:02:28

SHE SCREAMS

0:02:280:02:29

Can I become The Wave Runner?

0:02:290:02:31

Well, she's six-and-a-half hours in, so about 13 miles done.

0:02:360:02:40

24,000 uphill steps.

0:02:400:02:43

This is where she starts to question whether she can make it or not.

0:02:430:02:47

So, she's done a lot, but she's got an awful long way to go.

0:02:470:02:51

'The conditions have changed since this morning.

0:02:510:02:53

'The wind and waves are much stronger,

0:02:530:02:55

'and I'm struggling to keep my balance.'

0:02:550:02:58

It's just pushing me over.

0:02:580:03:01

It's pushing me to the left.

0:03:010:03:04

Arrgh.

0:03:040:03:06

'This is so tough, but I've got to keep trying.'

0:03:060:03:09

'15 miles in, and I've reached a critical moment in my journey.

0:03:130:03:17

'The tide is turning and should start pushing me towards

0:03:170:03:20

'my destination of Portpatrick.

0:03:200:03:22

'But over the next hour, the wind increases

0:03:230:03:26

'and the waves just get higher.

0:03:260:03:29

'It's taking all my strength to stay upright.'

0:03:290:03:32

Arrgh!

0:03:340:03:35

'I'm so frustrated.

0:03:350:03:37

'I know I have to beat these conditions to stay on track.'

0:03:370:03:41

It is too slippy.

0:03:410:03:43

'After 16 miles, Greg calls me in for a crisis talk.'

0:03:430:03:47

Your pace has been amazing from start to this point.

0:03:470:03:51

But the problem is that those tides are just really quick today,

0:03:510:03:55

and with the combination of that and the wind,

0:03:550:03:57

it's just pushing you in the wrong direction.

0:03:570:04:00

This is tough. Really, really, really tough. OK?

0:04:000:04:02

Are we just not going anywhere?

0:04:020:04:05

We are. We're going the wrong direction,

0:04:050:04:06

so we're not going where we want to go. OK?

0:04:060:04:08

This has got nothing to do with you.

0:04:080:04:10

There are not many people as brave as you, let me tell you that.

0:04:110:04:14

'I'm running out of time, but I'm determined to get back on course.'

0:04:180:04:23

Ooh! Ah!

0:04:260:04:28

It's pushing me around.

0:04:280:04:30

'The extra effort is agony...'

0:04:300:04:32

'..and the waves are impossible.

0:04:360:04:38

'I manage one more mile...

0:04:440:04:46

'..then I hear the words I'm dreading.

0:04:480:04:52

'Greg tells me to stop.'

0:04:520:04:54

Come on, let's get you out. Let's get you out of there.

0:04:560:04:58

Are you sure we can't just keep trying?

0:04:580:05:01

The tide simply won't let you get to shore, that's the problem.

0:05:010:05:05

It fundamentally becomes too dangerous to be out here.

0:05:050:05:08

'I can't believe it's over.

0:05:080:05:11

'I've been at sea for nine hours but I have to accept

0:05:110:05:14

'that I can't make it to Scotland against the tide.

0:05:140:05:17

'I'm devastated.'

0:05:170:05:19

'I did manage to walk 17 miles across the Irish Sea,

0:05:210:05:25

'but it just wasn't enough.'

0:05:250:05:27

That was a tough day. Very emotional.

0:05:280:05:30

I get a bit teary looking back at that.

0:05:300:05:32

Now, it wouldn't be Blue Peter without some amazing competitions

0:05:320:05:35

and we've seen a few of those.

0:05:350:05:36

All of our competition winners have received a money-can't-buy prize,

0:05:360:05:39

including Mia from West Sussex,

0:05:390:05:41

who won our CBBC Wolfblood competition.

0:05:410:05:43

She got to appear in the actual show and boy, did she rock that outfit!

0:05:430:05:48

As well as that, designing the BP Sport Badge 2016

0:05:480:05:51

really got your creative juices flowing

0:05:510:05:53

because over 5,500 of you entered that competition.

0:05:530:05:57

-It is amazing.

-It really is amazing.

0:05:570:05:59

It's very much up my alley, as well, being all about sport.

0:05:590:06:01

And who won it but Sam from Stafford,

0:06:010:06:03

with his incredible eye-catching design.

0:06:030:06:05

What did he get to do?

0:06:050:06:07

First of all, his badge went to every single member

0:06:070:06:09

of Team GB and Para GB who went to the Rio Olympics,

0:06:090:06:12

plus he got to go to the Team GB kitting-out session,

0:06:120:06:15

and I went with him. Sam, you're a legend!

0:06:150:06:17

Let's not forget Max, another legend.

0:06:170:06:19

The Big Day Out winner.

0:06:190:06:21

He was awesome. He designed a poster that was seen by thousands of people

0:06:210:06:24

on the London Underground. And as a special treat,

0:06:240:06:26

he got to ride in the cabin, and he even blew the whistle.

0:06:260:06:29

-How cool was that?

-He loved it, didn't he?

0:06:290:06:31

And the exclusive access didn't stop there,

0:06:310:06:33

because we marked 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl

0:06:330:06:37

with our Dream Big competition.

0:06:370:06:39

And you lot applied in your thousands once again,

0:06:390:06:42

creating your amazing dream stories.

0:06:420:06:45

And the winner was, of course, Betty from Hull,

0:06:450:06:47

and her prize really was a dream come true.

0:06:470:06:51

Awesome, isn't it?

0:06:510:06:53

'As part of Roald Dahl 100, The BFG was released worldwide,

0:06:530:06:57

'and Betty got to attend the premiere in London,

0:06:570:07:00

'along with runners-up Isabella and Zac.

0:07:000:07:02

'Getting to go to the premiere was just one part of Betty's prize.

0:07:050:07:09

'For the second part, she got to meet the director of The BFG,

0:07:090:07:13

'Steven Spielberg.'

0:07:130:07:14

Steven, it is an absolute pleasure to meet you.

0:07:160:07:18

Thank you so much for being on Blue Peter today.

0:07:180:07:20

Thank you, Lindsey. It's nice to be here.

0:07:200:07:22

Now, as you know, on Blue Peter,

0:07:220:07:23

we launched this incredible competition called Dream Big,

0:07:230:07:26

and we had over 8,000 children apply for this, Blue Peter viewers.

0:07:260:07:30

-Amazing.

-It's incredible, isn't it?

0:07:300:07:31

-That's great.

-What's more incredible is we have our winner right here.

0:07:310:07:35

-Betty.

-Betty, it's nice to see you.

-Nice to meet you.

0:07:350:07:38

-Nice to meet you.

-Betty came up with an incredible dream sequence,

0:07:380:07:41

and we've actually got the finished animation here,

0:07:410:07:44

-if you would like to have....

-I would.

-..a little look at it.

0:07:440:07:47

-Here you go.

-OK.

0:07:470:07:49

Our protagonists were fired from their job at the estate agent...

0:07:500:07:53

because they were toucans.

0:07:530:07:56

HE LAUGHS

0:07:560:07:57

They were upset because one felt he was a people toucan,

0:07:590:08:03

while the other had strategic planning skills.

0:08:030:08:06

OPERA MUSIC PLAYS

0:08:060:08:07

Unemployed, they broadened their minds with opera and books.

0:08:070:08:12

A period of reflection on their corporate lives

0:08:130:08:16

showed them that their particular skills

0:08:160:08:18

did not make for good estate agents.

0:08:180:08:20

The toucans opened their own Internet cafe in Shoreditch...

0:08:230:08:26

..providing a careers advice service for other animals

0:08:280:08:31

stuck in dead-end jobs, unsuited to their skills.

0:08:310:08:34

HE LAUGHS

0:08:340:08:37

Yeah, I can see why you're sitting here. That's really marvellous.

0:08:370:08:40

-Thank you.

-Did you ever imagine that you might be sitting here

0:08:400:08:43

with Steven Spielberg, showing him your animation?

0:08:430:08:46

-Not in a million years.

-THEY LAUGH

0:08:460:08:48

-What does it feel like?

-I still need to pinch myself.

0:08:480:08:50

It's not... I don't even know what to say.

0:08:500:08:54

And what parts of the animation did you particularly enjoy, Steven?

0:08:540:08:57

I love with the coffee shop, that little social...

0:08:570:08:59

-"Toucan Play This Game."

-"Toucan Play This Game."

0:08:590:09:03

That is great. You have a wonderful imagination,

0:09:030:09:06

but you're also a really good writer.

0:09:060:09:08

-Thank you.

-I think we all start the same way.

-Yeah.

0:09:080:09:10

Everybody starts from the same area where nothing is impossible.

0:09:100:09:15

Where the possibilities abound, and anything you can create

0:09:150:09:19

for yourself, as your film illustrated, you can do that.

0:09:190:09:22

Before we let you go, Betty, you've got a little something

0:09:220:09:25

-to ask Steven, haven't you?

-Yes.

0:09:250:09:27

Would you mind taking a selfie with us?

0:09:270:09:29

-I would love that!

-This is going to be a good one.

0:09:290:09:32

OK.

0:09:320:09:33

How amazing!

0:09:350:09:36

-Off the charts.

-I was properly, properly nervous and star struck,

0:09:360:09:39

but it was amazing to meet Steven Spielberg.

0:09:390:09:41

He's not the only incredible guest we've had on Blue Peter in 2016.

0:09:410:09:45

There have been loads!

0:09:450:09:46

My favourite - Danny MacAskill.

0:09:460:09:48

Now, to put it into perspective for you,

0:09:480:09:50

if you played football and your favourite footballer

0:09:500:09:52

was David Beckham, and he taught you how to take a free kick, for me,

0:09:520:09:55

Danny MacAskill was that hero.

0:09:550:09:56

He taught me how to wheelie, how to bunny hop.

0:09:560:09:58

-It was awesome.

-You couldn't speak after that day.

0:09:580:10:00

-I couldn't.

-You loved it.

-I literally... It was so exciting.

0:10:000:10:02

Let's talk about let's talk about Jez from the F2 Freestylers,

0:10:020:10:05

who came on to Blue Peter without his partner, Billy,

0:10:050:10:08

and absolutely crushed it.

0:10:080:10:09

He put a ball into a wheelie bin with his head.

0:10:090:10:13

-That's enough for me.

-OK, Radz, calm down. You loved it.

0:10:130:10:15

As well as that, we've had so many Hollywood stars on the show,

0:10:150:10:18

like Justin Timberlake,

0:10:180:10:19

Anna Kendrick, Kevin Hart and even Jack Black. It's been good.

0:10:190:10:23

But the one that you guys got the most excited about is, of course,

0:10:230:10:26

superstar from the internet, DanTDM.

0:10:260:10:28

He was here in the BP studio.

0:10:280:10:30

Camera two, we all know that DanTDM is cool,

0:10:300:10:33

but how cool did he become when he invented a very exclusive Blue Peter

0:10:330:10:37

game for us to play? I wasn't very good at it, though.

0:10:370:10:41

-A huge welcome to Blue Peter.

-Thank you.

-And can we also say

0:10:410:10:44

a massive congratulations. Is it true you've now had over

0:10:440:10:47

-eight billion views online?

-It's very true.

0:10:470:10:50

-Yes.

-Just insane.

-That's ridiculous! You are a bit of a megastar, then.

0:10:500:10:53

A little bit, yeah. I do a lot of talking for my job, which is great.

0:10:530:10:57

I do that over the top of games like Minecraft and Roblox,

0:10:570:10:59

while creating my own characters, popping them into their own worlds

0:10:590:11:02

and having crazy, crazy stories happen.

0:11:020:11:05

-And you do this from your house as well?

-Yes.

0:11:050:11:07

It is the best job in the world.

0:11:070:11:09

I've got to eat that bit. Talk to us about the tour as well.

0:11:090:11:12

Yes, so, the tour. I'm taking what I built online

0:11:120:11:16

and taking it into the real world in the form of my tour,

0:11:160:11:19

-which is great. We're going to 13, no, 16 places.

-Lost count.

-32 shows.

0:11:190:11:23

-Going everywhere.

-It's a lot of stuff to do.

0:11:230:11:25

It's a lot of stuff. And we have some new characters,

0:11:250:11:27

a brand-new plot line and some really awesome custom games as well.

0:11:270:11:31

Speaking of games, we've got a little BP special version...

0:11:310:11:35

-We do.

-..of one of the games here.

0:11:350:11:36

Talk us through it. What's it called, Dan?

0:11:360:11:38

-So, this is called The Run Of Doom.

-It sounds terrifying.

0:11:380:11:41

It is terrifying. Well, not too terrifying. It's doable.

0:11:410:11:44

So, what is going to happen is our players are going to be on

0:11:440:11:46

the right-hand side of the screen and they need to get to

0:11:460:11:48

the left-hand side while dodging objects

0:11:480:11:50

flying at their head and their feet.

0:11:500:11:51

And we just need one person to get to the end to win it for everyone.

0:11:510:11:54

-Out of the four players we're going to play with.

-Yes.

0:11:540:11:56

-We've got three super-fans here.

-Yay!

-Sam, Lily and Daniel.

0:11:560:11:59

-Welcome, guys!

-Come on in, guys. Take your positions.

0:11:590:12:01

Daniel looks very confident.

0:12:010:12:03

-Yes.

-Look at that smile.

-Talk us through how they're going to

0:12:030:12:05

use these mats and make the game work.

0:12:050:12:07

You're going to use these little mats to run.

0:12:070:12:09

And you do that with your left and right, like this.

0:12:090:12:11

-So, if you stomp on them really quickly...

-There we go.

0:12:110:12:13

-There we go.

-Perfect.

-Warming up. Do that to run from right to left.

0:12:130:12:16

-So, you run by literally running on those two?

-Literally running, yes.

0:12:160:12:19

-OK, fine.

-And then if you need to jump over an obstacle,

0:12:190:12:22

you tap your top button with your foot, like that.

0:12:220:12:24

If you need to duck under anything, then you do your back button.

0:12:240:12:27

-Bring it on.

-Very good. And always go back to running,

0:12:270:12:29

or you'll get locked on the wrong side of the screen.

0:12:290:12:31

OK, guys. Limber up, get ready.

0:12:310:12:33

-Dan, would you like to vlog throughout and commentate?

-OK. Yes.

0:12:330:12:35

It's what you do best. OK. Let's start the...

0:12:350:12:38

-Oh, game's starting. Three, two, one.

-Three, two, one and go!

0:12:380:12:40

-Go!

-Run! Run as fast as you can.

0:12:400:12:42

-You're doing well. Wow, they're all...

-Who's flying? Jump!

0:12:420:12:45

-Oh, my goodness.

-Daniel, you're doing amazing.

0:12:450:12:47

-Oh!

-Jumping over the badges.

0:12:470:12:49

Duck, duck, duck.

0:12:490:12:51

Mind that little...

0:12:510:12:53

-Very good, very good.

-Oh, that was so close!

0:12:530:12:55

-Daniel, come on!

-Sam is doing amazing.

-Sam, the bottom!

-Sam, Sam!

0:12:550:12:59

-Oh, you nearly got that! Well played!

-Good job, look at that.

0:12:590:13:01

-That was very close.

-Good job. Look at that.

0:13:010:13:04

-Sam. He's done it.

-High five.

-He's done it.

0:13:040:13:07

Well done. Good job, guys.

0:13:070:13:09

Now, something else I love is when we have live music and bands

0:13:090:13:12

here in the Blue Peter studio.

0:13:120:13:14

We've had the mighty Lawson...

0:13:140:13:16

# Imagine if money just grew on trees

0:13:160:13:18

# I would spend the whole day planting seeds

0:13:180:13:21

# I wish that I could give you everything

0:13:210:13:24

# Treat you to the world's most beautiful things... #

0:13:240:13:26

..and of course, Imani.

0:13:260:13:28

# Baby

0:13:280:13:30

# Wrapped up in your arms feels like I made it

0:13:300:13:34

# When I close my eyes the world is faded

0:13:340:13:38

# I used to say that love was just a fool's game... #

0:13:380:13:42

..and as well as that, my fave, Olly Murs.

0:13:420:13:45

# I know you've got to grow up

0:13:450:13:48

# Ain't you sick of being immature

0:13:480:13:51

# Talking loud cos you're insecure

0:13:510:13:53

# You always turn it up Turn it up turn it up

0:13:530:13:56

# Come on... #

0:13:560:13:57

Boys, what have been your favourite?

0:13:570:13:59

We can't forget about the uber talented, the lovely, Izzy Bizu.

0:13:590:14:02

And how good was she on the show, by the way?

0:14:020:14:07

# White tiger

0:14:070:14:08

# I ride rollercoaster

0:14:080:14:12

# If I am still caught on these safety bars

0:14:120:14:16

# I probably made it... #

0:14:160:14:20

And what about the Kaiser Chiefs?

0:14:200:14:21

It was a performance like no other when they came in last time.

0:14:210:14:24

That's because I was dancing in the background,

0:14:240:14:26

and I was dressed like Shelley.

0:14:260:14:27

# Whip up the crowd

0:14:270:14:31

# Get them going nice and loud

0:14:310:14:34

# But you're the only one I see

0:14:340:14:36

# You're the only one It's you and me

0:14:390:14:42

# Strike up the band

0:14:420:14:45

# Give yourself a great big hand and

0:14:460:14:50

# All together now. #

0:14:500:14:52

Name of the album...

0:14:520:14:54

# Stay together Hold on to my hand

0:14:540:14:57

# And everybody gave up

0:14:590:15:01

# Until we start from the top again

0:15:030:15:06

# Take it all from the top The top

0:15:070:15:10

# The top The top

0:15:100:15:12

# There's a hole in my soul

0:15:120:15:15

# That could only be filled by you again

0:15:150:15:19

# There's a hole in my soul

0:15:190:15:23

# That could only be fixed by two

0:15:230:15:27

# It can never be filled

0:15:270:15:29

# Never be filled

0:15:290:15:31

# Never be filled By anyone else but you

0:15:310:15:35

# It can never be filled

0:15:350:15:36

# Never be filled

0:15:360:15:38

# Never be filled By anyone else but you. #

0:15:380:15:42

I will never get bored of watching that.

0:15:470:15:49

But as well as music, we also know that you love animals,

0:15:490:15:51

and we've met a fair few.

0:15:510:15:53

That's right. I loved getting up close and personal and having a hold

0:15:530:15:56

of Melon, the three-banded armadillo.

0:15:560:15:59

She actually became a bit of star. We had so much post in for Melon.

0:15:590:16:02

-She was amazing.

-Genuinely enjoyed my experience with the beetles,

0:16:020:16:05

and just so you know, I was not scared when it grabbed my hand

0:16:050:16:08

-and wouldn't let go.

-But of course,

0:16:080:16:10

our favourite animals here on Blue Peter are Shelley and Iggy.

0:16:100:16:13

And 2016 was a busy year for them, too.

0:16:130:16:15

Let's start with Shelley, who quite literally went to space.

0:16:150:16:20

That picture is off the charts,

0:16:200:16:21

and she even interviewed some Hollywood A-listers!

0:16:210:16:24

Check this out.

0:16:240:16:25

It's an honour to meet you, Shelley.

0:16:260:16:28

Oh, you're giving me the silent treatment, I see?

0:16:300:16:33

OK. Well, you know what, Shelley?

0:16:330:16:35

Two can play this game.

0:16:360:16:38

Look, I want to be friends. I don't want you upset with me.

0:16:400:16:43

You can ask me anything.

0:16:430:16:45

Shelley, please do not leave.

0:16:460:16:48

Wow.

0:16:510:16:53

Shelley, have I ever told you about my coin collection?

0:16:530:16:56

Probably the most

0:16:560:16:58

rude interview I've ever had.

0:16:580:17:00

Showing me your back.

0:17:000:17:02

Just give me a sign, a nod.

0:17:020:17:05

Anything at all.

0:17:050:17:06

Oh...

0:17:080:17:11

A Blue Peter badge?

0:17:110:17:13

Oh, I can't believe it! Shelley, thank you so much!

0:17:130:17:16

Thank you! And it matches my outfit.

0:17:160:17:18

And of course, Iggy graduated from her guide dog school training.

0:17:210:17:24

We were so proud of her, as she went off to meet her brand-new owner,

0:17:240:17:28

Callum.

0:17:280:17:30

Back in April, we were so pleased when Iggy became a fully-fledged

0:17:300:17:34

guide dog and went to live with her new owner, Callum.

0:17:340:17:37

So, Iggy's been with Callum for six months now,

0:17:370:17:40

and I'm so excited to see both of them and see how they're getting on.

0:17:400:17:43

Here we go.

0:17:430:17:44

-Hello!

-Hiya.

-I can see Iggy!

0:17:460:17:49

-Hey, how's it going?

-Hi, guys. How are you? Hello, Iggy.

0:17:490:17:52

-Hey. Give me a hug, Cal. How are you doing?

-Hiya. How's it going?

0:17:520:17:55

-Good to see you. Good to see you, Iggy!

-Yeah, and you.

0:17:550:17:57

You get a cuddle, too.

0:17:570:17:59

-How have you guys been?

-Really good, yeah. Really well.

0:17:590:18:01

It's so nice to see you both.

0:18:010:18:03

-Shall we take her out for a little stroll?

-Yeah, sure.

0:18:030:18:06

-Let's go for it.

-OK, let's do it.

0:18:060:18:08

When we last met Callum, he and Iggy could walk two routes.

0:18:080:18:11

To his nan's house, and to college.

0:18:110:18:14

This was a big deal at the time,

0:18:140:18:16

but already I can see that things have moved on.

0:18:160:18:18

Good girl. It's all right. Good girl.

0:18:180:18:21

You guys make a really good team.

0:18:210:18:22

Oh, I definitely wouldn't be walking around as fast and as confident as

0:18:220:18:25

-this without her.

-I was going to say, I'm struggling

0:18:250:18:27

to keep up a bit here, Cal.

0:18:270:18:29

'Callum now has so much more confidence.

0:18:290:18:31

'And with Iggy's help, he can go to loads more places.

0:18:310:18:35

'Today, we're meeting up with his brother Daniel and friend Elle

0:18:350:18:38

'for a little bite to eat.'

0:18:380:18:39

Small fish butty, please.

0:18:390:18:42

What's it like for you guys to see Callum and Iggy's relationship?

0:18:420:18:45

First thing I saw of him was walking from our house

0:18:450:18:48

all the way round my nan's on his own, which is only a short walk,

0:18:480:18:51

but it made a big difference that he could do it on his own.

0:18:510:18:53

He was walking quick, confident.

0:18:530:18:55

And Cal, I know that you've been kind of working on routes with Iggy,

0:18:550:18:58

-kind of trying to help her with new routes.

-Yeah.

0:18:580:19:01

So how does the process work with Iggy?

0:19:010:19:04

-Is she quite quick to pick it up?

-Yeah, she's not bad.

0:19:040:19:06

I mean, the main process really is, I get the hang of the route,

0:19:060:19:08

and then when I've got it, I teach Iggy along with the instructors.

0:19:080:19:11

Because, obviously, she doesn't just know where to go.

0:19:110:19:14

I need to direct her where to go.

0:19:140:19:16

And what about you, Elle?

0:19:160:19:17

You must have noticed a real difference now that

0:19:170:19:19

-Callum's got Iggy in his life?

-Yeah, he's more independent.

0:19:190:19:22

Like, he can out and do whatever he wants,

0:19:220:19:25

and get there with Iggy's help.

0:19:250:19:27

It's clear from just one trip out with his mates

0:19:290:19:32

that Callum can achieve whatever he wants to

0:19:320:19:34

now that he has Iggy by his side.

0:19:340:19:36

I could not be prouder of what Iggy's achieved,

0:19:380:19:41

but also what you've achieved.

0:19:410:19:42

You guys are amazing together,

0:19:420:19:44

and it's so nice for me and all the Blue Peter audience to watch you.

0:19:440:19:48

Well, it's been amazing, you know, not just to be part of Blue Peter,

0:19:480:19:51

but I really can't thank all the guide dogs team enough.

0:19:510:19:54

The puppy walkers, her trainers.

0:19:540:19:56

I just really can't thank all the people enough. It means so much.

0:19:560:20:00

I think back to before. I don't know, I just think, what did I do?

0:20:000:20:03

I can't think how I got out and about, and I can't think what I did,

0:20:030:20:05

-either. It's a friend as well.

-Mmm.

-You know, it's a best friend.

0:20:050:20:08

And let's not forget the Blue Peter website.

0:20:110:20:13

The fan club is getting bigger and better all the time.

0:20:130:20:15

It's got exclusive content on there,

0:20:150:20:17

such as fun and games with Dory star Ellen DeGeneres...

0:20:170:20:20

This is a horrible game. This is tough. Who came up with this?

0:20:200:20:22

-Forget it.

-Is this all you have?

-Shall we start again?

-No(!)

0:20:220:20:25

Oh...

0:20:250:20:27

..as well as lots of quizzes and makes, my favourite bit.

0:20:270:20:30

But the online exclusives keep on coming,

0:20:300:20:32

just like interview with Hollywood leg-e-n-d Liam Neeson,

0:20:320:20:37

who'll be talking about his brand-new film, A Monster Calls.

0:20:370:20:40

-I'm afraid.

-Of course you are afraid...

0:20:420:20:45

..but you will make it through.

0:20:460:20:50

For this is why you called me.

0:20:500:20:51

Come on.

0:20:530:20:54

And my favourite thing we do is Fan Of The Month,

0:20:570:20:59

and it all started with Blue Violet Mini Baker.

0:20:590:21:03

And it is, reveal it, Radz...

0:21:030:21:04

-Yes!

-Blue Violet Mini Baker!

0:21:040:21:06

Well done! Well done you.

0:21:060:21:09

Then there was Teal Water Elephant...

0:21:090:21:12

This month's fan of the month is...

0:21:120:21:14

..Teal Water Elephant.

0:21:160:21:18

Congratulations.

0:21:180:21:20

..and Mustard Dotty Cabbage..

0:21:200:21:22

-Mustard Dotty Cabbage!

-Whoa!

0:21:220:21:26

..and then Purple Piano Toucan...

0:21:260:21:28

On their very own flag...

0:21:280:21:31

Purple Piano Toucan.

0:21:310:21:35

..and Lavender Scaly Unicorn...

0:21:350:21:37

-I'll bring in the winner...

-Mh-hm.

0:21:370:21:39

..using the power of telekinetics.

0:21:390:21:42

-Using my mind like Matilda.

-Oh, really? OK.

0:21:420:21:45

Oh. Oh!

0:21:450:21:46

-Look, it's Lavender Scaly Unicorn!

-Yes! I knew it would work!

0:21:460:21:49

..Peridot Dancing Meerkat...

0:21:490:21:52

Fan of the month is...

0:21:520:21:53

Go on, guys!

0:21:540:21:56

-ALL:

-Peridot Dancing Meerkat!

0:21:560:21:58

Yay!

0:21:580:22:00

..Awesome Arnav.

0:22:000:22:02

The fan of the month -

0:22:020:22:03

drumroll whilst I say - November is...

0:22:030:22:06

Oh, Awesome Arnav!

0:22:080:22:12

And last but not least, Super Silly Sloth.

0:22:120:22:16

My favourite name. We hope that more and more of you will sign in.

0:22:160:22:18

If you don't, you're missing out, and here's why.

0:22:180:22:21

make sure you sign up for a CBBC account

0:22:240:22:27

0:22:270:22:29

Nice. We nailed that! So, if you've already got an account,

0:22:290:22:32

we need a little bit more information from you.

0:22:320:22:34

0:22:340:22:38

And follow your favourite shows.

0:22:470:22:48

Ahem. Blue Peter.

0:22:480:22:50

Plus, you can now change your display name.

0:22:500:22:53

I'm going to be Lindsey.

0:22:530:22:55

-No, Radzi, that's my name.

-I know.

0:22:550:22:57

All the info you need is on the Blue Peter website.

0:22:570:22:59

In fact, I'm going to head that right now.

0:22:590:23:01

Hi, Linds. Need to get my CBBC account sorted.

0:23:010:23:04

Bye!

0:23:040:23:06

So, there you go. Now you know exactly how to do it.

0:23:070:23:10

And I'd say now is the perfect time.

0:23:100:23:11

Christmas is over, you're on your holidays,

0:23:110:23:13

get your sign-in sorted.

0:23:130:23:16

Now, on Blue Peter it's all about the badge,

0:23:160:23:18

and you know that. That's why in 2016,

0:23:180:23:21

we received over 100,000 pieces of post. That's incredible.

0:23:210:23:23

-That's amazing, isn't it?

-Thank you very much.

-Incredible.

0:23:230:23:26

Speaking of post, I'm having a little snuggle here

0:23:260:23:28

with this handmade crocheted blanket.

0:23:280:23:31

Look at this. It's been sent in by Alana and Matthew.

0:23:310:23:34

-That's amazing.

-Have a look at that. They're from Lincolnshire.

0:23:340:23:37

Guys, you've earned yourselves a Blue Peter badge.

0:23:370:23:39

I'm going to keep snuggling in it.

0:23:390:23:41

-It's lovely.

-So much effort's gone into that.

-Isn't it good?

0:23:410:23:43

There are loads of badges you can earn,

0:23:430:23:45

and I'll show you just how many as I open the magic treasure chest.

0:23:450:23:48

You can see the orange one, the green one, the purple one,

0:23:480:23:50

the sports one, the silver one and the blue one.

0:23:500:23:53

All summer we've been challenging you to earn as many

0:23:530:23:56

Blue Peter badges as possible.

0:23:560:23:58

And not only that, but to put them in this snazzy make.

0:23:580:24:00

We're calling it the Blue Peter Badge Baton.

0:24:000:24:04

-Look at it. I love it.

-Now, there is another badge,

0:24:040:24:06

and it's extra special, and it's this bad boy right here.

0:24:060:24:10

-Oh!

-Now, in 2016,

0:24:100:24:12

only a handful of the gold Blue Peter badges were awarded

0:24:120:24:15

for outstanding achievements. And here's just a few of them.

0:24:150:24:18

-No.

-None of us have a gold badge.

-No.

-Because that, of course,

0:24:180:24:21

as we all know, is for outstanding achievement.

0:24:210:24:23

It's for doing something very, very special indeed.

0:24:230:24:26

And actually, Toby, we think that you've done something incredibly

0:24:260:24:29

special. Because you kind of mentioned it before.

0:24:290:24:31

You're connecting the world with your letters

0:24:310:24:34

and really inspiring people, like the Blue Peter viewers,

0:24:340:24:37

to do exactly the same thing.

0:24:370:24:38

And so for that reason, Toby, if you look in my hand here,

0:24:380:24:41

we've got something very special.

0:24:410:24:42

The highest possible accolade we can give you in Blue Peter.

0:24:420:24:45

The gold badge.

0:24:450:24:47

-My goodness!

-Can we please have a massive round of applause for Toby.

0:24:470:24:50

Oh!

0:24:500:24:51

CHEERS AND APPLAUSE

0:24:510:24:54

-That's for you, my friend.

-Thank you.

0:24:540:24:56

-Toby, is that a bit of a surprise there?

-Yes.

0:24:560:24:59

-You didn't know we were going to do that, did you?

-No.

0:24:590:25:01

How does it feel to be holding a gold badge?

0:25:010:25:04

Really amazing. Oh!

0:25:040:25:06

Well, Toby, well done.

0:25:060:25:07

Honestly, you've inspired Radzi and I, and I'm sure

0:25:070:25:09

you've inspired everyone watching. You're incredible.

0:25:090:25:12

Toby, everybody.

0:25:120:25:14

He's done such an amazing thing for so many imaginations.

0:25:140:25:17

We would like you, on his behalf,

0:25:170:25:19

to accept his gold Blue Peter badge.

0:25:190:25:22

SHE GASPS

0:25:220:25:24

Oh, my gosh!

0:25:240:25:26

This is extraordinary!

0:25:260:25:28

That is amazing.

0:25:280:25:31

How many of these have been made?

0:25:310:25:33

Not many at all.

0:25:330:25:35

-Very few.

-Like, very, very few.

0:25:350:25:36

-The Queen has one.

-Very, very, very few.

0:25:360:25:38

-Now Roald Dahl.

-Oh, my gosh.

0:25:380:25:41

In honour of your incredible achievement,

0:25:410:25:45

and all that you've done, and your contribution to science,

0:25:450:25:48

we'd like to award you with our highest accolade here on Blue Peter.

0:25:480:25:52

-Goodness me.

-It is your very own gold Blue Peter badge.

0:25:520:25:55

Wow, what an honour. That is fantastic!

0:25:550:25:58

-How amazing is that, everybody? There you go, Tim.

-Wonderful.

0:25:580:26:01

Thank you so much, Lindsey.

0:26:010:26:03

That is brilliant! Absolutely brilliant.

0:26:030:26:06

I shall treasure that forever. That's wonderful, thank you so much.

0:26:060:26:09

A bit of a surprise here.

0:26:090:26:10

People that watch Blue Peter absolutely love to be inspired,

0:26:100:26:14

-to be challenged and to be entertained.

-Right.

0:26:140:26:17

And over the last few years, and over your entire career,

0:26:170:26:20

you have done just that with your absolutely incredible films.

0:26:200:26:24

You really have. So in honour of your talent,

0:26:240:26:27

your passion and your pioneering work,

0:26:270:26:29

we'd like to take this moment to award you with our highest accolade.

0:26:290:26:33

It is the Blue Peter gold badge.

0:26:330:26:36

Oh, I know all about this! That is indeed an honour.

0:26:360:26:40

That is fantastic.

0:26:400:26:41

Didn't someone else very high up in this country...

0:26:420:26:45

Well, the Queen has one!

0:26:450:26:46

-..have one? That's what I'm referring to.

-Yes, yes.

-Wow.

0:26:460:26:49

-So, that is for you.

-That is so great.

0:26:490:26:51

Well, I'm going to wear it with pride.

0:26:510:26:53

And I've been aware of Blue Peter ever since

0:26:530:26:56

I started making movies here in 1980.

0:26:560:26:59

-Really?

-Yeah.

0:26:590:27:00

-That's amazing to hear.

-I made Raiders of the Lost Ark here

0:27:000:27:02

-in the UK in 1980.

-Mh-hm.

-So...

0:27:020:27:05

Is this your first Blue Peter badge, the gold one?

0:27:050:27:07

This is my first Blue Peter badge.

0:27:070:27:09

-Wow.

-And I've always secretly, privately wanted one.

0:27:090:27:12

-Now you have it.

-But now I have one.

0:27:120:27:13

-So, thank you!

-Steven, thank you so much.

0:27:130:27:15

-Thanks. Thank you so much.

-Thank you.

0:27:150:27:18

I have just decided, 2016 was off the charts.

0:27:200:27:24

We all hope you had as much fun being a part of this amazing club -

0:27:240:27:27

that's Blue Peter, by the way, as we have,

0:27:270:27:29

and this show really wouldn't be possible without you.

0:27:290:27:31

Without your comments, without your letters, your drawings,

0:27:310:27:34

without your models. It really is your show.

0:27:340:27:35

Thank you so much, and we'll see you next time.

0:27:350:27:38

-Bye.

-Bye!

-Bye-bye!

0:27:380:27:40

Barney, Lindsey and Radzi pick some of their favourite moments from a jam-packed 2016.
