It's Conor Maynard. Helen and Barney gave me this for Christmas.

0:00:020:00:06

Make sure you stay tuned to find out what it is. Hmm.

0:00:060:00:09

Coming up on today's show...

0:00:120:00:14

It's time to grab a turkey sandwich

0:00:140:00:16

and sit back as we revel in the epic year that was 2012 on Blue Peter.

0:00:160:00:20

..as well as catching up with one of this year's superstar guests -

0:00:200:00:24

the phenomenal Conor Maynard.

0:00:240:00:26

And look out for some familiar faces

0:00:260:00:28

in our special performance of All I Want For Christmas.

0:00:280:00:31

# More than you could ever know... #

0:00:310:00:33

Hello. Hope you are enjoying the festive period.

0:00:520:00:54

I said I was going to super-size Christmas this year.

0:00:540:00:57

-You have done.

-I've got 12 trees instead of one.

0:00:570:00:59

Considering the Christmas contacts you do have,

0:00:590:01:02

I didn't get my pony this year for Christmas, what is going on?

0:01:020:01:05

-Give it time, New Year sales!

-Very good.

0:01:050:01:07

As if you could buy a pony in the New Year sales. That'd be amazing.

0:01:070:01:10

Anyway, welcome to a very special episode of Blue Peter -

0:01:100:01:13

our last episode of the year. 2013 is only a few days away.

0:01:130:01:16

This year has gone by so fast. Our feet have hardly touched the ground.

0:01:160:01:20

We've been so busy. We've been all over the country.

0:01:200:01:23

We've been on your screens for 52 weeks of the year.

0:01:230:01:26

We hope that you have enjoyed it and we hope that you have been with us.

0:01:260:01:29

There have been highs, lows, tears, laughs, good times,

0:01:290:01:32

mainly good times.

0:01:320:01:34

We've been blown away with how incredible this year has been.

0:01:340:01:37

We would like you now to sit back

0:01:370:01:39

and take a look at some of our favourite highlights.

0:01:390:01:41

My favourite has to be learning to fly a loop-the-loop with the Blades.

0:01:410:01:45

What an experience that was.

0:01:450:01:46

-Am I flying the plane at the moment?

-You are.

0:01:460:01:49

-My hands are not on the controls.

-I'm doing this all by myself?

0:01:490:01:52

-You are doing this all by yourself.

-Oh, my goodness.

0:01:520:01:55

I get goosebumps every time I watch that. I'm so proud of you.

0:01:550:01:57

Good job. We can see a bit more of that later on.

0:01:570:02:00

My highlight has to be all the way back in January

0:02:000:02:03

when just 21 days into the month, I reached the South Pole.

0:02:030:02:06

It was an ambition that I never even dared dream about.

0:02:060:02:09

This time last year, I was knee deep in snow en route to the South Pole.

0:02:110:02:15

It was a challenge I was undertaking for Sport Relief.

0:02:150:02:18

I had to travel over 500 miles across Antarctica

0:02:180:02:21

to get all the way to the South Pole itself.

0:02:210:02:24

'I was using three different modes of transport - kite skiing...'

0:02:260:02:28

If you don't concentrate, you get into a bit of a pickle.

0:02:280:02:33

'..cross-country skiing

0:02:330:02:34

'and, in a world first, a specially adapted bike.'

0:02:340:02:38

This is so slow.

0:02:390:02:41

We are slower than we are when we're cross-country skiing.

0:02:410:02:44

We had to pull heavy sleds containing our food

0:02:440:02:48

and equipment over the coldest, windiest, driest place on Earth.

0:02:480:02:52

You have already developed a blister about the size of a 20p piece.

0:02:520:02:56

If we left this on its own, it would just get worse.

0:02:560:03:00

This is the most unpleasant experience of my life.

0:03:000:03:05

But it was all worth it and when I finally reached my goal,

0:03:050:03:08

it's a moment I will cherish for ever.

0:03:080:03:11

Really proud of what we've achieved as a team.

0:03:120:03:16

I cannot believe that we are at the South Pole, the bottom of the world.

0:03:160:03:20

Whilst I was completing my expedition to the South Pole,

0:03:240:03:27

a journey of an altogether different nature was also coming to its end.

0:03:270:03:32

Naomi from Live And Deadly

0:03:320:03:33

joined two giant pandas at their new home in Edinburgh Zoo.

0:03:330:03:37

These rare animals are on an extremely important assignment -

0:03:370:03:40

to be the first pandas here in the UK to have a baby.

0:03:400:03:43

Pandas by their nature are solitary animals,

0:03:430:03:47

which means they like to spend time by themselves.

0:03:470:03:50

That's why at the zoo,

0:03:500:03:52

female Sweetie and male panda Sunshine have separate enclosures.

0:03:520:03:57

-You're the panda keeper here at the zoo.

-I am.

0:03:570:03:59

Why is it that we haven't had pandas born here in the UK?

0:03:590:04:03

The last pandas were at London Zoo

0:04:030:04:05

and unfortunately, they did not breed.

0:04:050:04:07

But now we have a pair so, hopefully, ours will breed.

0:04:070:04:11

But it wasn't just the pandas

0:04:110:04:13

who won our hearts on the show this year.

0:04:130:04:16

We love animals on Blue Peter. We were even lucky enough

0:04:160:04:19

to welcome Pudsey the dog with owner Ashleigh to the studio,

0:04:190:04:23

fresh from having won Britain's Got Talent.

0:04:230:04:26

-I presume it's been the most busy time of your life?

-It has!

0:04:260:04:29

We've been really busy. But we've been having a lot of fun as well.

0:04:290:04:32

We are both just loving the experience.

0:04:320:04:35

In the spring, Blue Peter viewer Ella showed us

0:04:430:04:46

what life was like for her on her farm during lambing season.

0:04:460:04:50

It's important that we are here to help out with the birth

0:04:500:04:53

because lots of things can go wrong.

0:04:530:04:55

We don't want to lose either the precious baby or its mother.

0:04:550:04:59

That's it. Clear its nose.

0:04:590:05:01

That's one healthy little lamb.

0:05:070:05:10

This is the miracle of lambing.

0:05:120:05:14

For most of our pets, the future of their breed is assured.

0:05:140:05:18

But not so for all. Naomi went to meet a unique breed of dog.

0:05:180:05:22

Meet the otter hound. Otter hounds have long legs and webbed feet.

0:05:240:05:28

They get their name

0:05:280:05:29

because they were used to hunt otters in the 18th and 19th centuries.

0:05:290:05:33

In those days, otters were not seen as cute, they were seen as pests.

0:05:330:05:36

This practice ended around 50 years ago

0:05:360:05:39

and, since then, otter hounds have lessened in numbers, with experts

0:05:390:05:42

predicting that the breed could be extinct within the next ten years.

0:05:420:05:47

But there is hope for this endangered breed.

0:05:470:05:50

I've come to Hereford to meet a woman

0:05:500:05:52

who is doing everything she can for the otter hound.

0:05:520:05:56

Maria has been breeding otter hound dogs for over 20 years.

0:05:560:06:00

She adores them and even shows them at events like Crufts.

0:06:000:06:03

She currently has seven adult dogs,

0:06:030:06:05

of which four are being used for breeding,

0:06:050:06:08

and I am keen to find out her take on the plight of the otter hound.

0:06:080:06:12

Why do think this breed of dog is so endangered?

0:06:120:06:15

There have never been many otter hounds around anyway.

0:06:150:06:18

They were not available to the general public

0:06:180:06:21

until the late 1970s and the early 1980s.

0:06:210:06:25

Up until that time, they were solely a hound used and bred for hunting.

0:06:250:06:30

I love these dogs, but I'm more desperate to meet the puppies.

0:06:300:06:34

Let's go.

0:06:340:06:35

# Who let the dogs out? #

0:06:350:06:36

For the first six weeks of their lives,

0:06:360:06:38

the otter hound pups suckle on milk from their mum.

0:06:380:06:41

But now they are nine weeks old, it is Maria's job to make sure

0:06:410:06:44

their bellies are full, which is a lot of responsibility.

0:06:440:06:48

-There is a lot of mouths to feed, how much do they eat?

-At the moment,

0:06:480:06:51

they are eating about eight kilos a day of an all-in-one puppy diet.

0:06:510:06:57

-They're probably eating their weight in meat?

-Getting on for, yes.

0:06:570:07:01

They just get fed once a day?

0:07:030:07:06

No, they would have this sort of sized meal three times a day.

0:07:060:07:11

-And what goes in must come out.

-Yes. It's a constant job.

0:07:130:07:17

-There is a lot of poo around in this little pen.

-There is.

0:07:190:07:22

I've always fancied having a kennel maid,

0:07:220:07:25

would you like to go and get the shovel?

0:07:250:07:27

Oh. I'd love to.

0:07:270:07:29

All of these gorgeous puppies now have new homes to go to.

0:07:320:07:35

I get the best jobs. No, don't eat it before I scoop it up.

0:07:350:07:39

But it still does not secure the future of this endangered species.

0:07:390:07:43

Because although 19 puppies seems like a lot,

0:07:430:07:45

most won't be used for breeding.

0:07:450:07:48

All Maria can do is carry on with her good work.

0:07:480:07:51

Hopefully, some of the boys and girls in these two litters

0:07:510:07:56

will become parents in the future

0:07:560:07:59

because we are going to lose the breed

0:07:590:08:02

if we have not got more being bred.

0:08:020:08:04

Music is another huge passion for us on Blue Peter.

0:08:110:08:15

And throughout the last 12 months,

0:08:150:08:17

we've welcomed a galaxy of music stars who have performed for you.

0:08:170:08:21

We kicked off the New Year

0:08:210:08:23

by getting CBBC to do the hump with the Rizzle Kicks.

0:08:230:08:26

# Mama do the hump Mama do the hump hump

0:08:260:08:30

# Mama won't you please let me do the hump hump

0:08:300:08:32

# Mama do the hump Mama do the hump hump

0:08:320:08:35

# Mama won't you please let me do the hump hump

0:08:350:08:37

# Mama do the hump Mama do the hump hump

0:08:370:08:40

# Mama won't you please let me do the hump hump... #

0:08:400:08:43

And the big-name guests kept on coming. Which of these can you name?

0:08:430:08:48

Someone who's burst onto the music scene in a big way this year

0:09:410:09:45

is Conor Maynard.

0:09:450:09:47

# Looking for trouble. But it came looking for me... #

0:09:470:09:52

# Turn around... #

0:09:520:09:53

And over 135 million views on YouTube.

0:09:570:10:01

So we sent him a little gift to say well done.

0:10:010:10:04

# You say I think we got a problem... #

0:10:050:10:08

KNOCKING AT DOOR

0:10:080:10:09

-Delivery for Conor Maynard.

-Thank you.

0:10:110:10:15

"Dear Conor. Sorry we are not there to give you this gift in person,

0:10:180:10:22

"but after a massive year, we wanted to say Merry Christmas.

0:10:220:10:26

"Hope to see you on Blue Peter in 2013.

0:10:260:10:29

"Lots of love, Helen and Barney."

0:10:290:10:31

That's nice.

0:10:310:10:33

"Sorry, just to say, before you get the present,

0:10:340:10:37

"you have to answer our questions first.

0:10:370:10:40

"2012 has been an amazing year for you, apart from appearing

0:10:400:10:44

"on Blue Peter, what have been your top three highlights?"

0:10:440:10:47

My top three highlights.

0:10:470:10:49

My album going to number one was an incredible highlight.

0:10:490:10:52

Another one would be, for my single Turn Around,

0:10:520:10:55

I got to shoot a video in LA, downtown LA with Ne-Yo.

0:10:550:10:59

My third highlight would be the Olympics.

0:10:590:11:01

I was in the athletics stadium

0:11:010:11:03

when team GB won three golds in one day.

0:11:030:11:06

I was there during Super Saturday. It was absolutely amazing.

0:11:060:11:09

And yes, I jumped up and down. It was an amazing day, definitely.

0:11:090:11:13

I'd say they were my top three highlights.

0:11:130:11:15

Yes! I get to open a present. Here we go. I'm so excited. Oh...

0:11:150:11:20

Another question. "What are you most looking forward to about 2013?"

0:11:200:11:26

My album is released in America in 2013,

0:11:260:11:29

so I am extremely excited about that. Here we go. Last one.

0:11:290:11:33

No, it's not, there's another question.

0:11:330:11:36

Helen and Barney, you amazing people, you(!)

0:11:360:11:40

"What can our audience expect from Conor in 2013?"

0:11:400:11:43

I'm going to be in a whole bunch of shows in 2013,

0:11:430:11:47

a whole bunch of festivals that I actually get to see you guys at

0:11:470:11:50

and get to perform live. I get to meet a whole bunch of you as well.

0:11:500:11:53

Thank you for being the Maniacs, as my fans are called.

0:11:530:11:56

I'm really excited about it.

0:11:560:11:57

What are the odds? Another question.

0:11:580:12:01

"Is there someone you would love to duet with in the New Year?"

0:12:010:12:06

I'm a big fan of Emeli Sande.

0:12:060:12:08

I think she's an incredible writer so if I got to duet with her,

0:12:080:12:12

I think that would be a lot of fun.

0:12:120:12:14

Next one. Got to be the pre... Another question. Great.

0:12:140:12:19

"If you could be an animal, what would you be?"

0:12:190:12:22

Well, my favourite animal is a lion.

0:12:220:12:24

I love lions so much, I wanted to change my name to Leo.

0:12:240:12:28

Luckily, my mum told me not to do that.

0:12:280:12:30

But I still love the name, so maybe one day, I might change it to Leo.

0:12:300:12:34

We'll see.

0:12:340:12:36

Oh! Look at that!

0:12:370:12:39

A lion!

0:12:390:12:41

I don't know if you guys can see that, but there is a lion.

0:12:410:12:45

I'm going to name it Leo.

0:12:450:12:47

Thank you, Helen and Barney, for the lion, for Leo.

0:12:470:12:50

# You can take my heart

0:12:530:12:57

# Like a criminal

0:12:570:12:58

# Won't you make me believe

0:13:010:13:04

# I'm the only one?

0:13:040:13:06

# So grab me by the neck

0:13:080:13:10

# And don't you ever let go

0:13:100:13:12

# Mess me up so good until I'm begging for more

0:13:120:13:16

# You tear me apart

0:13:160:13:19

# Like an animal

0:13:190:13:21

# Like an animal, animal... #

0:13:210:13:24

2012 has been a year like no other.

0:13:270:13:30

Even before the summer holidays began,

0:13:300:13:32

you were all given an extra day off school to help the Queen

0:13:320:13:35

celebrate her historic Diamond Jubilee and 60 years as our monarch.

0:13:350:13:39

For Blue Peter, DJ Sara Cox went to Buckingham Palace to find out

0:13:390:13:44

what Gary Barlow had planned for the celebration concert.

0:13:440:13:47

So, then, Gary, when you got the call from the Palace,

0:13:470:13:50

asking you to take on such a huge event as this, how did you feel?

0:13:500:13:55

It's very exciting.

0:13:550:13:56

-Did a bit of you think, "I can't do it."

-I think there always is.

0:13:560:14:00

Having seen the Golden Jubilee and how successful that was,

0:14:000:14:04

I wanted to make it look different and feel different

0:14:040:14:08

and feel ten years more improved.

0:14:080:14:11

And how are you going to do that?

0:14:110:14:13

What we've tried to do with the Diamond Jubilee concert is span it

0:14:130:14:17

over 60 years of music. So we have got somebody from every decade.

0:14:170:14:22

Another event that took place that weekend was the Flotilla Of Boats

0:14:220:14:26

which accompanied the Royal barge on a journey up London's River Thames.

0:14:260:14:30

We joined the Sea Cadets

0:14:300:14:32

as they made their preparations to take part.

0:14:320:14:35

What other than the wind affects your speed?

0:14:350:14:38

-Do the ties have an effect?

-They can do because of the sandbanks.

0:14:380:14:41

There are a lot on the south coast.

0:14:410:14:44

-So you could actually run aground?

-You could, yes.

0:14:450:14:47

You have to be careful.

0:14:470:14:49

I'm sure this crew of cadets would not let that happen.

0:14:490:14:52

In fact, right now I'm counting on their experience

0:14:520:14:55

because my first job as Sea Cadet Skelton is to climb

0:14:550:14:58

the 24 metre mast right to the top to let the sails down.

0:14:580:15:02

A bit of a head rush there.

0:15:060:15:08

If the Royalist is going to reach London in four days,

0:15:080:15:11

all 11 sails need to be used to their best advantage.

0:15:110:15:14

With the sails released, it's straight back down the mast.

0:15:160:15:20

Hard on the heels of the Jubilee came a totally unforgettable

0:15:200:15:23

summer of sport starting with the Euro 2012 football championships.

0:15:230:15:28

Excuse me. Can I help you?

0:15:280:15:31

-Um, yeah, two teas would be great.

-Tea?

0:15:310:15:34

So, Gary... I mean Mr Lineker... Sorry... I love your crisps!

0:15:350:15:40

We travelled to Ukraine and Poland

0:15:400:15:43

to discover more about the host countries.

0:15:430:15:46

And Barney certainly got to bust some moves in the process.

0:15:460:15:50

MUSIC PLAYS

0:15:500:15:52

Well, that seemed to go OK.

0:16:120:16:15

OK, what's this? What am I doing?

0:16:150:16:17

What me? My turn? OK? Just spin.

0:16:170:16:19

Spin for all you're worth, Barney boy!

0:16:190:16:22

Er...should I be doing this?

0:16:230:16:25

Er...OK, then.

0:16:250:16:27

Oh, please! Make them stop! Stop!

0:16:290:16:33

Oh, thank goodness for that!

0:16:330:16:35

On a more serious note,

0:16:380:16:40

I learned about a disaster which has had a lasting impact on Ukraine.

0:16:400:16:45

26 years ago, an explosion tore through a nuclear power plant

0:16:450:16:49

in a place called Chernobyl.

0:16:490:16:51

The disaster had a devastating impact

0:16:510:16:53

on the people who lived nearby.

0:16:530:16:55

There is so much debate around how many people were affected.

0:16:570:17:02

Can you say at all how many people

0:17:020:17:04

suffered as a result of the explosion?

0:17:040:17:07

Very difficult to tell.

0:17:070:17:09

According to official data I read, 237 firefighters who took part

0:17:090:17:14

in extinguishing the fire, 38 of them died.

0:17:140:17:18

In a weird way, I was keen to come here

0:17:180:17:21

because I was fascinated by what I would see.

0:17:210:17:24

People have discussed and argued about Chernobyl for years

0:17:240:17:27

and they will do for decades to come.

0:17:270:17:29

But now that I'm here, I can see the scene of a tragedy that caused

0:17:310:17:36

so much suffering around the world, I just feel really uncomfortable.

0:17:360:17:43

I feel like I'm looking at a car crash and I shouldn't be.

0:17:450:17:49

No-one would dispute

0:17:540:17:56

that the key sporting event of the summer was the Olympics.

0:17:560:17:59

But in the run-up to it,

0:17:590:18:01

every Saturday we followed the Olympic torch as it

0:18:010:18:03

criss-crossed the country in our special Big Olympic Tour series.

0:18:030:18:08

Tens of thousands of you came to see us and I was even allowed to

0:18:080:18:11

carry the torch as it went through Wolverhampton.

0:18:110:18:14

This is unbelievable, isn't it? This is just...

0:18:160:18:19

Each torchbearer runs a fifth of a mile before passing

0:18:220:18:25

the Olympic flame on as it continues its epic journey across the UK.

0:18:250:18:29

Oh, that was such an honour,

0:18:310:18:33

and one of those things I will be talking about

0:18:330:18:36

for the rest of my life.

0:18:360:18:37

The British Olympic team

0:18:390:18:40

achieved their best modern performance on the medal table ever.

0:18:400:18:43

What an achievement!

0:18:430:18:45

And we were lucky enough to welcome Olympic gold medallist Jade Jones

0:18:450:18:49

and Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey to the studio.

0:18:490:18:52

-How do you feel?

-It feels amazing. It is just overwhelming, really -

0:18:520:18:56

-all the support, it's just great.

-It is incredible to see what you do.

0:18:560:18:59

And not only that, it's incredible to be here with a gold medal.

0:18:590:19:03

Can we see it? Not many know this, but something magic happens

0:19:030:19:06

when you win a gold, it attaches itself to your cheek.

0:19:060:19:09

As you lift it, you can't help but go like that.

0:19:090:19:11

Can you remember what each of these is for?

0:19:110:19:14

Absolutely. The medals are engraved with road cycling track cycling.

0:19:140:19:18

And when I won the second one in each,

0:19:180:19:20

I put a safety pin on the back.

0:19:200:19:21

So that I'd know. So this one was won for the road race

0:19:210:19:24

-on my final day of competition.

-Just look at Sarah's nails.

0:19:240:19:28

-Four gold medals.

-And a flag bearer.

-Brilliant.

0:19:280:19:30

After a history making summer, we did some making of our own.

0:19:320:19:36

Including personalised pencil cases for Amanda from Cover Drive.

0:19:360:19:40

I think it's only right that Amanda comes into help me out with this

0:19:400:19:44

because it is your present after all.

0:19:440:19:46

-So there's your letter.

-OK.

-It's the final A in your name.

0:19:460:19:50

-Some glue.

-Some glue. Do you want me to put it on?

-Yes, you do that.

0:19:500:19:53

Fantastic, and just chuck it on there, like that.

0:19:530:19:57

There you have it, the finished pencil case. It's as easy as that.

0:19:570:20:00

Plus, edible eyeballs to spook your friends.

0:20:000:20:03

And then because these are horrible, gruesome, diseased eyes,

0:20:030:20:08

we're going to paint a little bit of red around the outside of the iris.

0:20:080:20:12

Nice, and you can use that same red

0:20:120:20:14

to do the veins around the outside of the eye as well.

0:20:140:20:17

If you look, you can see that there is a technique to it

0:20:170:20:20

because you work outside-in.

0:20:200:20:22

And Halloween botkins - a cross between a bottle and pumpkin!

0:20:220:20:27

You should able to find most of the bits that you need around the house.

0:20:270:20:31

Can you put the lights down, please? And...

0:20:310:20:34

..you should be able to see our ghost glowing in the dark.

0:20:360:20:40

The night of frights itself saw us hotfoot it to a theme park

0:20:410:20:45

where Barney and I tried to present the show from a rollercoaster.

0:20:450:20:48

You could do a fun-run.

0:20:480:20:50

You could do a sponsored silence.

0:20:500:20:52

You could even do a car boot sale.

0:20:520:20:54

Oh, my goodness.

0:20:540:20:56

-SHE SHOUTS INDISTINCTLY

-Whoa-ho!

0:20:560:20:59

I think Barney is going to be sick.

0:20:590:21:02

I've got that watery thing.

0:21:020:21:03

But you would have thought

0:21:050:21:07

that Barney would have been used to high-octane rides.

0:21:070:21:10

Especially after he fulfilled

0:21:100:21:11

his life's ambition to loop-the-loop on a plane.

0:21:110:21:14

-Am I flying the plane at the moment?

-You're flying a plane.

0:21:140:21:17

-My hands are not on the control.

-I am doing this all by myself?

0:21:170:21:20

-All by yourself.

-Oh, my goodness.

0:21:200:21:22

This is Bernie's first go at a loop.

0:21:220:21:26

OK, start easing back on the stick now.

0:21:260:21:29

That's beautiful, bit more, little bit more.

0:21:290:21:32

Little bit more, little bit more. That's brilliant, keep it like that.

0:21:320:21:36

Keep it like that, keep it coming. That's lovely, Barney.

0:21:360:21:40

-Wow!

-Keep it coming, keep it coming. That's it.

0:21:400:21:46

Keep it coming a little bit. Relax it down.

0:21:460:21:51

That is a loop, Barney.

0:21:510:21:54

That was absolutely incredible.

0:21:540:21:56

In many ways for Barney, his challenge was an emotional tribute

0:21:570:22:01

to his aircraft engineer grandfather.

0:22:010:22:03

He worked for British Aerospace,

0:22:030:22:05

so I sat with him on so many planes,

0:22:050:22:07

it was always his ambition to go up in a plane.

0:22:070:22:10

I wish he could have seen what I've just done.

0:22:100:22:12

Hopefully, he's looking down from above

0:22:120:22:15

and he's just seen what you've done.

0:22:150:22:17

For this year's appeal we decided to Go Pyjamas!

0:22:190:22:22

In support of Children In Need.

0:22:220:22:24

We got you all in your onesies and PJs,

0:22:240:22:26

with thousands of you across the country

0:22:260:22:28

throwing them over your clothes

0:22:280:22:30

and getting sponsored for doing all sorts of crazy things.

0:22:300:22:34

Children In Need helps fund this power chair football team.

0:22:390:22:42

It's a growing sport in the UK

0:22:420:22:44

where two teams of four people control a powerful wheelchair

0:22:440:22:47

that has a guard,

0:22:470:22:49

big wheels and a large motor

0:22:490:22:51

to allow players to move across the pitch at speed.

0:22:510:22:55

Emily, what do you love about playing power chair football?

0:22:550:22:58

Well, you can let your talents out

0:22:580:22:59

and you can show people how good you are and what your abilities are.

0:22:590:23:03

It doesn't matter what ability you have, we're all the same.

0:23:030:23:06

So it's just a chance for you to show off?

0:23:060:23:08

And prove to people that you're not just disabled,

0:23:080:23:11

you can do other things like other people.

0:23:110:23:13

-'It's time for kick-off.'

-Go!

0:23:130:23:15

SCREAMING AND SHOUTING

0:23:180:23:21

I've got it!

0:23:210:23:23

Yeah! Yes!

0:23:230:23:25

Yes!

0:23:250:23:27

In this game of football everyone's working together

0:23:270:23:30

and as a result of that we're winning 2-0.

0:23:300:23:33

But just a few of us going pyjamas wasn't enough.

0:23:380:23:41

304 of you helped set a new world record.

0:23:410:23:44

The number of the other people that you had in the line-up was...

0:23:460:23:50

304, you followed the guidelines,

0:23:500:23:52

it's a brand-new Guinness world record.

0:23:520:23:54

CHEERING

0:23:540:23:57

I have to say, I actually miss not wearing pyjamas to work,

0:23:580:24:01

it was a great appeal, I enjoyed myself. We should bring it back.

0:24:010:24:04

It is true that you don't have to do any ironing

0:24:040:24:06

when you wear pyjamas, you just throw them on and say,

0:24:060:24:09

-"I'm wearing pyjamas."

-It works for everybody.

0:24:090:24:12

But it wasn't just the appeal, we also had fun recently

0:24:120:24:14

when we invited you guys to come in and take over the show

0:24:140:24:17

and be our producers. Some had more fun than others.

0:24:170:24:20

The producers thought it would be a good idea

0:24:200:24:23

for Helen to teach me how to ski.

0:24:230:24:25

-And I fell over a lot.

-Have you still got a sore leg?

0:24:250:24:27

-Yes, right there. She gets you right on the bruise.

-It's fine.

0:24:270:24:31

Let's talk about Lapland, that was a great show.

0:24:310:24:33

We got pulled on a sled by huskies.

0:24:330:24:35

-They were really fast.

-I wanted to bring the dogs back.

0:24:350:24:38

But Barney the dog was not up for it at all.

0:24:380:24:40

What about you in that Finnish sauna?

0:24:400:24:42

That image will stay with me for a while.

0:24:420:24:44

I enjoyed that and it is good for your skin, very healthy.

0:24:440:24:47

And the Christmas show was last week.

0:24:470:24:49

-We've done a lot, we'd better start thinking about next year.

-We are.

0:24:490:24:53

We're going to kick-off 2013 in a very special way.

0:24:530:24:55

If you got a camera for Christmas

0:24:550:24:57

or your brother or sister got a smart phone

0:24:570:24:59

or if you have an old camera laying around, then stick with us.

0:24:590:25:02

We will be teaching you some top photography techniques for 2013.

0:25:020:25:05

We're also going to be making a super-sized animation.

0:25:050:25:08

The star will be someone that you might know.

0:25:080:25:11

It's as if I'm not animated enough.

0:25:110:25:13

We'll find out when we see the finished result.

0:25:130:25:15

All that's left to say

0:25:150:25:17

is thank you very much for watching Blue Peter this year.

0:25:170:25:20

We couldn't do it without you, we'll see you again in 2013.

0:25:200:25:23

It's nice to go into the office on Mondays

0:25:230:25:25

and find your letters and e-mails,

0:25:250:25:27

please keep sending them in. The details are on the website.

0:25:270:25:29

While you're there, you can see a longer version of this gem

0:25:290:25:33

-when our friends got involved...

-SHE COUGHS

0:25:330:25:35

..to sing a very special version of All I Want For Christmas.

0:25:350:25:39

-Can I start it?

-I thought that was you singing.

-Play the video.
