We've got the hottest ticket in town today with not one,

0:00:040:00:06

but two musical performances.

0:00:060:00:08

The amazing Ed Sheeran is going to show you how to write a song

0:00:080:00:10

and performing one of his latest tracks.

0:00:100:00:12

And look who we've got joining us, pop superstars, Union J!

0:00:120:00:15

-Hello, hi!

-Welcome to Blue Peter from sunny Salford. Are you excited?!

0:00:360:00:40

ALL: Yes!

0:00:400:00:43

Do you know who else is excited? Iggy. She's back!

0:00:430:00:45

-Hey, beautiful! Where have you been?

-She's loving the sun.

0:00:450:00:48

And for good reason because she's got loads to look forward to,

0:00:480:00:51

as have you at home as in a couple of minutes time, Linds is going to be speaking to Union J

0:00:510:00:54

and then after that, Barney gets exclusive behind the scenes access

0:00:540:00:58

in the brand-new CBBC series, Harriet's Army.

0:00:580:01:00

Hi, I'm Barney. I'm going behind the scenes to speak to the cast

0:01:000:01:03

and also I'm going to make them lunch World War 1 style.

0:01:030:01:06

It looks gross but it's actually really tasty.

0:01:060:01:08

It's jam-packed because we're going to be taking

0:01:080:01:10

a look back to when I met top adventurer Bear Grylls and finding

0:01:100:01:13

out some of his tips on how you can survive the outdoors this summer.

0:01:130:01:16

So, Linds, when it comes to surviving the outdoors

0:01:160:01:18

in this kind of weather, there's only one thing you need.

0:01:180:01:21

-And what's that, Radz?

-Ice creams.

-That is the best idea you've had all day!

-Good idea!

0:01:210:01:24

-Come on, we're getting a 99.

-Me too. I want raspberry sauce on mine.

-Can you get me one?

0:01:240:01:28

Now it's time to meet one of the best bands in the UK.

0:01:280:01:31

They first stormed the Top 10 last year with their single Carry You.

0:01:310:01:34

They took a break and now they are back for 2014 with their new album. Shall we go meet them, Iggy?

0:01:340:01:38

It's their first time on Blue Peter

0:01:380:01:40

so give them a massive round of applause.

0:01:400:01:42

It is Josh, JJ, Jaymi and George from Union J!

0:01:420:01:44

Come on, Iggy! Wooh! Come on, puppy, big step. There we go. Iggy!

0:01:440:01:48

-Union J: Aww!

-She's a beaut!

-She's adorable!

0:01:480:01:50

-Hi, Union J.

-Hello!

-Welcome to the show.

0:01:500:01:53

Thank you so much for coming on. Union J: Thanks for having us.

0:01:530:01:55

You've been away from the music scene so what have you been getting up to?

0:01:550:01:58

We've just been really busy. We've been recording the next album,

0:01:580:02:01

travelled the world, went to America for a bit to do some writing and stuff so it's been fun.

0:02:010:02:05

Our new single's on the radio now.

0:02:050:02:07

Yes! And you'll perform it later on in the show. We cannot wait.

0:02:070:02:10

So, I'm going to get onto some questions because we've had

0:02:100:02:13

hundreds of people getting in touch on the website.

0:02:130:02:16

Iggy, are you ready? The first one is from Blue Sprinting Cherry,

0:02:160:02:21

a good name, who says, "I've always wanted to ask a boy band this.

0:02:210:02:24

"How much hair gel do you use?"

0:02:240:02:26

-Union J:

-We use spray.

-It's hairspray.

-It's all about the spray.

0:02:260:02:30

A nice dry look. I like that. Oh! Down you get, Iggy.

0:02:300:02:34

Now, Scarlet Massive Onion says,

0:02:340:02:36

"What is your favourite biscuit to dunk in any drink?"

0:02:360:02:40

-Union J:

-Chocolate hobnobs.

-Hi-five, Josh.

0:02:400:02:44

-Just a plain digestive.

-Just keep it simple. I like that, with a cup of tea.

0:02:440:02:49

Now, Left Right Sunshine Queen says, "If you were to go back in time to

0:02:490:02:53

either the '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, or '90s, which time would it be and why?

0:02:530:02:58

-I would say '50s.

-Really? Why?

0:02:580:03:01

I loved the '90s. The music in the '90s was so cool.

0:03:010:03:04

The '60s was quite hippy, wasn't it? The '60s, because we won the World Cup.

0:03:040:03:09

That's a good answer. I think that would be Radzi's answer as well.

0:03:090:03:12

-Now, is it true your fans are called J Cats?

-Yes.

0:03:120:03:15

I'm a bit of a J Cat. I don't think Iggy would like that

0:03:150:03:19

-because she's a dog.

-J Dog.

-She's your Union J puppy supporter.

0:03:190:03:23

Why do they call you J Cats?

0:03:230:03:25

I don't know. They kind of made it themselves, didn't they?

0:03:250:03:28

Well, it's catchy and we like it.

0:03:280:03:31

And Brown Grumpy Isle wants to know, "Who would you most like to tour with?"

0:03:310:03:35

Obviously Ed Sheeran is on the show today as well

0:03:350:03:38

so I think he would be a cool guy to be on tour with.

0:03:380:03:41

His songs are incredible. He's such a talented guy.

0:03:410:03:43

He was at Wembley when we played at the Summertime Ball.

0:03:430:03:46

It was just the most epic experience to watch. So, yeah, that would be amazing.

0:03:460:03:50

You like him too, don't you, Iggy?

0:03:500:03:51

She loves Ed Sheeran. She's a big Ed Sheeran fan.

0:03:510:03:54

And Red Violet Popular Duck says, "Who sleeps the most and do they snore?"

0:03:540:03:59

-Josh.

-Josh, yeah.

-Josh loves his sleep.

0:03:590:04:02

-And he thinks he doesn't snore but he does.

-No, I do snore.

0:04:020:04:04

It's not really snoring, it's kind of like...

0:04:040:04:06

-George sleeps with his eyes open.

-That's weird.

0:04:060:04:09

-Sleeps with both eyes open.

-That's scary.

0:04:090:04:13

It's proper creepy.

0:04:130:04:15

Well, Union J, thank you so much for coming today.

0:04:150:04:18

We cannot wait to hear your new single later on.

0:04:180:04:20

It's going to be on this very stage

0:04:200:04:22

and make sure you head to the website...

0:04:220:04:24

Check out even more Union J exclusives.

0:04:240:04:27

It's hot out here, isn't it?

0:04:270:04:29

-I think we need some ice creams. Barney? Radzi?

-Yes, ice cream.

-Barney!

0:04:290:04:33

Did you get an ice cream for Lindsey and Union J?

0:04:330:04:37

-I thought you were getting them.

-No.

0:04:370:04:39

It's OK. Just hide it. She doesn't watch the show. It's fine.

0:04:390:04:42

-I'll do the next bit.

-Definitely.

0:04:420:04:43

-That was really tasty though. Really nice.

-Yeah, it was really good.

0:04:430:04:46

100 years ago in World War I, the food was nowhere near

0:04:460:04:49

as good as this, as I found out when

0:04:490:04:50

I went behind the scenes of a brand-new series

0:04:500:04:52

called Harriet's Army and I tried to make them some food.

0:04:520:04:57

217, take-one.

0:04:570:05:00

-Action!

-Hey, look, I'm on the telly!

0:05:000:05:04

I'm only kidding but I am behind the scenes on a brand-new drama for CBBC

0:05:050:05:09

called Harriet's Army.

0:05:090:05:10

Shall we go meet the cast?

0:05:100:05:12

Let's start from the very top.

0:05:150:05:16

What is Harriet's Army? Who is Harriet and what happens?

0:05:160:05:18

Harriet is a girl in World War I

0:05:180:05:21

and she's in the Guides

0:05:210:05:22

and she's kicked out of the Guides

0:05:220:05:24

because she's a bit naughty and she punches someone in the face.

0:05:240:05:28

But she still wants to help with the war

0:05:280:05:30

so she rallies together a group of children who

0:05:300:05:33

aren't in the Scouts or Guides and tries to help win the war.

0:05:330:05:37

First of all, we look for spies. That's the most important thing.

0:05:370:05:41

-I've already got patrols out looking but we need more.

-What's spies?

0:05:410:05:45

Foreigners or Germans trying to find out secrets.

0:05:450:05:48

There are over 80 cast and crew working on Harriet's Army

0:05:480:05:51

which means I've got a very important job to do.

0:05:510:05:54

I'm here to serve lunch but not just any old lunch. Oh, no.

0:05:540:06:00

I'm here to serve these troops the same food that kept

0:06:000:06:03

the British Army marching in World War I.

0:06:030:06:06

But before I can serve anything,

0:06:090:06:11

I need to find out what food was eaten in the First World War.

0:06:110:06:15

-It smells amazing in here. How are you?

-Hi, Barney.

0:06:160:06:19

-What's that?

-We've some got Maconochie here.

0:06:190:06:21

Maconochie I have never heard of before. I'm here

0:06:210:06:24

today to talk about food that would have been served

0:06:240:06:26

in World War I. So, they had stew?

0:06:260:06:28

Absolutely. So, if you look at the ingredients there,

0:06:280:06:30

we've got a bit of beef, potatoes, carrots,

0:06:300:06:34

but that would have come in a tin and been quite fatty, quite gristly,

0:06:340:06:38

so it wasn't tremendously popular with a lot of the men.

0:06:380:06:42

But it looks really inviting. Is that the kind of thing that I could try?

0:06:420:06:45

-You're braver than I am.

-It wasn't tremendously popular.

0:06:450:06:48

-What do you make of it?

-It takes a while to chew.

0:06:480:06:51

-It is very salty.

-A bit fatty, a bit salty, gristly.

0:06:510:06:55

Yeah, it's that bad.

0:06:550:06:58

I recognise the middle bowl because my grandma still cooks

0:06:580:07:01

with this stuff to this day. It's called corned beef.

0:07:010:07:03

Yeah, bully beef. Lawrence of Arabia said bully beef was more important

0:07:030:07:08

in the history of warfare than the invention of gunpowder

0:07:080:07:12

because if you've got tinned beef, you can keep

0:07:120:07:16

people in the field for longer.

0:07:160:07:17

If you think nutritionally, you're eating a lot of

0:07:170:07:19

salty, fatty red meats, not fresh veg,

0:07:190:07:21

you're not getting fresh fruits...

0:07:210:07:24

It could have a devastating effect on the lower half of our bodies.

0:07:240:07:29

You're going to get a bit bunged up.

0:07:290:07:31

Bunged up meaning "can not go to the toilet when one wants to."

0:07:310:07:35

While the caterers get to work on our World War I lunch,

0:07:360:07:39

I take a break to watch the action.

0:07:390:07:41

There's Ciara in the distance under an umbrella.

0:07:410:07:43

She's just filmed her scene which is quite an important scene in the show.

0:07:430:07:46

This is where she's just handed her uniform back in.

0:07:460:07:48

She got into a lot of trouble. She's quite a feisty character.

0:07:480:07:52

This is where she makes the decision to make her own Army.

0:07:520:07:55

It's quite an important scene.

0:07:550:07:57

-What's all this then?

-Haven't you heard?

0:07:570:07:59

The Scouts and Guides have volunteered

0:07:590:08:01

and the Government have said yes this morning.

0:08:010:08:04

-Looks like you've missed the boat.

-Volunteers for what?

0:08:040:08:06

We're going to be the second line of defence.

0:08:060:08:09

-Elliot, how you doing?

-Not bad, how are you?

0:08:130:08:16

-You're playing Thomas?

-Yes, I am.

0:08:160:08:18

-Action!

-My character is new to the area.

0:08:180:08:22

When he meets Harriet, he just takes off, starts having a good time,

0:08:220:08:27

starts enjoying it.

0:08:270:08:29

It is quite...astonishing, really, to think you've got a group

0:08:290:08:33

like the Guides and the Scouts who now you think about tying different

0:08:330:08:37

knots and earning badges for going to a camp site but back then, they had a very different role.

0:08:370:08:41

Yes, they said to the Government they wanted to help guard Britain,

0:08:410:08:45

and people who were 14, 15... The Government said yeah

0:08:450:08:49

and they were then guarding England which is a scary thought.

0:08:490:08:52

A lot of things have changed, including the diet.

0:08:520:08:55

I'm in charge of that at the moment

0:08:550:08:57

and we are trying to make food for today's shoot.

0:08:570:09:00

Just an idea of the food you like to eat?

0:09:000:09:03

-I love a good pizza.

-Pizza?

-Yeah, with lots and lots of meat on it.

0:09:030:09:06

Fast food isn't quite what I have in mind

0:09:080:09:11

but this 80-strong army will be

0:09:110:09:12

getting something to keep them in character.

0:09:120:09:15

I just hope they like my menu.

0:09:150:09:17

We've all heard how popular Maconochie was in the field.

0:09:170:09:20

It wasn't very popular at all.

0:09:200:09:22

But this one which has been lovingly made by Kevin hopefully will keep the

0:09:220:09:25

soldiers marching on set very happily for the next few scenes.

0:09:250:09:28

OK, ROLL UP... Is that what you say? Do you say "Roll up"?

0:09:280:09:31

Come and get your Maconochie, just like mum used to make.

0:09:310:09:34

-This looks nice.

-Can I have some Maconochie, please?

0:09:340:09:37

Of course you can, dear sir. Yes.

0:09:370:09:40

What do we think about the Maconochie? Is it nice?

0:09:430:09:45

I think it is a definite success.

0:09:450:09:47

I'm pleased with today. 80 people, cast and crew,

0:09:470:09:50

fed and watered, and the Maconochie went down really well too,

0:09:500:09:53

so I think my work here is done.

0:09:530:09:55

Home time.

0:09:550:09:58

Not so fast.

0:09:580:09:59

-What's that?

-Pots aren't going to wash themselves.

0:09:590:10:02

You've got to be kidding me!

0:10:020:10:04

-Are you wondering why I'm wearing a chef's hat?

-Yes!

0:10:060:10:08

Because I'm officially a cheffist.

0:10:080:10:09

I made the best Maconochie stew.

0:10:090:10:11

It was lovely, really tasty. Everyone loved it.

0:10:110:10:13

You were good at the washing up as well.

0:10:130:10:15

You can come round to mine for dinner more. That was very good.

0:10:150:10:17

Everything was squeaky clean. I'm good at washing up.

0:10:170:10:20

And if you missed Harriet's Army this week then

0:10:200:10:22

you can catch up on CBBC iPlayer.

0:10:220:10:24

-Thank you, Radzi, very much indeed.

-My pleasure!

0:10:240:10:26

Now for some music. He's already bagged the fastest selling album of 2014.

0:10:260:10:29

He is the incredible singer-songwriter

0:10:290:10:31

known as Ed Sheeran and recently

0:10:310:10:33

I met up with him to find out how to make it in the music business.

0:10:330:10:35

I could be in catering.

0:10:350:10:37

Today, we are going to do to the very start of your career.

0:10:380:10:41

When did you become Ed Sheeran? When did you first pick up that guitar?

0:10:410:10:44

It was the Queen's Jubilee on BBC.

0:10:440:10:47

I saw Eric Clapton play Layla and I thought, I want to learn that,

0:10:470:10:51

that looks really cool,

0:10:510:10:53

so I got a guitar and that was the first thing I learnt.

0:10:530:10:56

I play piano but I did Grade 5 and that was it. I got bored because I

0:10:560:11:00

wanted to learn Jimi Hendrix and that sort of stuff.

0:11:000:11:02

You don't necessarily need to be Grade 8, do you?

0:11:020:11:04

This is the thing I have a massive problem with.

0:11:040:11:07

I don't know music theory

0:11:070:11:08

and I got looked down on by a lot of musicians for not knowing music theory.

0:11:080:11:12

I can't read music, I don't know scales,

0:11:120:11:15

I don't really know what some chords are called.

0:11:150:11:17

But you don't need to learn that.

0:11:170:11:18

The reason I got into music was I wanted to play

0:11:180:11:22

the songs of the artists I was into

0:11:220:11:24

so any time I see kids wanting to get into music, I say find a guitar teacher

0:11:240:11:29

that will teach you the songs you want to play. Practise is the key.

0:11:290:11:33

You can't get anywhere without practise.

0:11:330:11:34

As long as you practise the chords and practise singing without looking

0:11:340:11:38

down, singing up, singing with the guitar, making sure you get your strums right, making sure that...

0:11:380:11:43

Or piano, any instrument, but just make sure you're doing it

0:11:430:11:46

for the right reasons because

0:11:460:11:47

you won't enjoy it if you are forced to do it.

0:11:470:11:51

Do you think performing

0:11:510:11:52

and writing music was something you were born to do?

0:11:520:11:54

I think you can be anything if you put your mind to it.

0:11:540:11:58

I wanted to be a musician, I put my mind to it and became it.

0:11:580:12:00

But I wasn't born with some natural talent.

0:12:000:12:02

I couldn't always sing or play guitar,

0:12:020:12:05

sing in tune, write lyrics, make stuff rhyme or perform.

0:12:050:12:09

I had to learn all of these things.

0:12:090:12:11

I think if you put your mind to anything, you can do it.

0:12:110:12:14

Is there a process of learning how to actually perform your material?

0:12:140:12:17

The first performance I did, I was 11

0:12:170:12:19

and I played Layla at the school concert, the Eric Clapton song,

0:12:190:12:22

and I didn't want to go on stage. I was really scared.

0:12:220:12:26

I was behind the stage being like, "I don't want to go on, I don't want to go on."

0:12:260:12:29

As soon as I went on, I was nervous, played the song

0:12:290:12:31

and as soon as I finished I was like, "Well, that wasn't too bad."

0:12:310:12:34

The more and more you do it, you just fall into performing.

0:12:340:12:37

Is a style something you can pick?

0:12:370:12:38

My style is maybe from ten different acts I'm into.

0:12:380:12:43

I'm into Damien Rice, a bit of Foy Vance and a bit of Stevie Wonder and

0:12:430:12:46

you stick it all into the mixing pot,

0:12:460:12:48

practise for years and years, it comes out

0:12:480:12:50

and eventually it's your sound.

0:12:500:12:52

So, again, I wouldn't worry too much about making stuff sound like you.

0:12:520:12:57

All your favourite artists started off impersonating other people.

0:12:570:13:00

I'm so glad you got on to the stage at 11 years old

0:13:000:13:02

and played Layla by Eric Clapton

0:13:020:13:04

because if you hadn't have done that and you hadn't have felt that buzz,

0:13:040:13:07

you wouldn't be here today.

0:13:070:13:08

When you put all these elements together, you get a top musician

0:13:080:13:11

and there's no better than Ed Sheeran so he's right here, right now

0:13:110:13:15

to perform Thinking Out Loud.

0:13:150:13:16

# When your legs don't work like they used to before

0:13:160:13:22

# And I can't sweep you off of your feet

0:13:220:13:28

# Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?

0:13:280:13:33

# Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

0:13:330:13:37

# And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70

0:13:370:13:44

# And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23

0:13:490:13:57

# And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

0:13:570:14:06

# Maybe just the touch of a hand

0:14:060:14:11

# Well, me I fall in love with you every single day

0:14:110:14:16

# And I just wanna tell you I am

0:14:160:14:21

# So honey now

0:14:210:14:26

# Take me into your loving arms

0:14:260:14:31

# Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

0:14:310:14:37

# Place your head on my beating heart

0:14:370:14:41

# I'm thinking out loud

0:14:410:14:44

# That maybe we found love right where we are

0:14:440:14:50

# When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades

0:14:500:14:56

# And the crowds won't remember my name

0:14:560:15:02

# When my hands don't play the strings the same way

0:15:020:15:08

# I know you will still love me the same

0:15:080:15:11

# Cos honey your soul could never grow old, it's evergreen

0:15:110:15:18

# And, baby, your smile's forever in my mind and memory

0:15:220:15:31

# I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

0:15:310:15:39

# Maybe it's all part of a plan

0:15:390:15:45

# Well, I'll just keep on making the same mistakes

0:15:450:15:50

# Hoping that you'll understand

0:15:500:15:55

# But, baby, now

0:15:550:15:59

# Take me into your loving arms

0:15:590:16:04

# Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

0:16:040:16:10

# Place your head on my beating heart

0:16:100:16:14

# Thinking out loud

0:16:140:16:17

# That maybe we found love right where we are

0:16:170:16:23

# We found love right where we are. #

0:16:230:16:28

Isn't he amazing?

0:16:290:16:31

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did chatting to him

0:16:310:16:33

and if you write a song or you're inspired to do something, send it to us. We'd love to hear it.

0:16:330:16:37

So many good ideas. If you could do that this summer, that'd be a great challenge!

0:16:370:16:40

The next Ed Sheeran.

0:16:400:16:41

It's all about being creative, as is the case with Big Badge Wall.

0:16:410:16:44

Just take a look at how colourful it is this week! I'm loving it!

0:16:440:16:47

Let me show you these magnets.

0:16:470:16:48

They stick to your fridge and I'm going to stick it on my fridge.

0:16:480:16:52

Amaris from Fife designed them.

0:16:520:16:53

They are Blue Peter Shield magnets with our names

0:16:530:16:55

and our little faces on them as well. Thank you very much.

0:16:550:16:58

-They're brilliant.

-Barney, they are cool.

0:16:580:17:00

Like what you did there, because they're going on a fridge.

0:17:000:17:02

Not as cool, however, as what Maya in Hampshire did.

0:17:020:17:05

Take a look at this.

0:17:050:17:06

It is the Blue Peter Summer Activity Book for each Barney, Lindsey and myself.

0:17:060:17:10

This is my one and it's got stuff like how to handle your hair

0:17:100:17:13

-getting wet...

-That's so nice.

0:17:130:17:14

It really is fantastic and at the very back it says, "This book

0:17:140:17:17

"can become very addictive." Well done, Maya, thank you.

0:17:170:17:20

That is brilliant. And one I couldn't go without talking about -

0:17:200:17:22

take that for two seconds, Radzi - is Anya in London.

0:17:220:17:26

She has made almost a life-size model of Iggy! Check that out!

0:17:260:17:31

We're going to show it to Iggy. What do you make of that, Iggs?

0:17:310:17:34

I think she likes it. Anya, thank you so much for sending that in.

0:17:340:17:36

What an amazing effort!

0:17:360:17:37

And she's even got her own little Iggy name badge just like Iggy.

0:17:370:17:40

-Thank you.

-She's huge. I think we should call her Biggy.

0:17:400:17:43

Something else that caught our attention was the online

0:17:430:17:46

article about a class of primary schoolchildren who,

0:17:460:17:48

between them, have got over 30 Blue Peter badges.

0:17:480:17:51

And we were so impressed with this we thought we would have to have

0:17:510:17:54

them on Blue Peter

0:17:540:17:55

so would you please welcome Nelson Marsden Community Primary School.

0:17:550:17:58

Hey, guys, come on in.

0:17:580:17:59

-Welcome, welcome!

-Guys, thank you so much for coming in today.

0:17:590:18:03

Ohh, Iggy's just saying hello.

0:18:030:18:05

She's very impressed because so many people from your school have a

0:18:050:18:08

badge and Abira and Maliah, you two are sisters, aren't you?

0:18:080:18:11

And you actually started the badge collection.

0:18:110:18:13

-So, what gave you that idea?

-Our mum.

-And why's that?

0:18:130:18:17

She never got a Blue Peter Badge so she totally inspired us

0:18:170:18:19

to get one and we did try. Oh!

0:18:190:18:21

So you're doing it on behalf of your mum?

0:18:210:18:23

-You're getting the school involved.

-Love it.

0:18:230:18:25

-Well done!

-Aisha, let's talk about your badge.

0:18:250:18:27

-How did you get it?

-I got it because I did a review.

0:18:270:18:29

So you're going to be a journalist of the future?

0:18:290:18:32

How about you? How did you get yours? You got three?

0:18:320:18:34

I was inspired by Jacqueline Wilson so I used some words from her

0:18:340:18:38

book and used them in my story and that's how I got my silver badge.

0:18:380:18:42

Congratulations. There's another two there.

0:18:420:18:44

A purple badge for reviewing a show and the Blue Peter badge. Well done!

0:18:440:18:47

Let's move on to a proper legend who you all recognise.

0:18:470:18:50

Let's have a look at YOUR badges. These are old school badges.

0:18:500:18:53

These are actually yours, aren't they?

0:18:530:18:55

-Yes, they are, yes. From the 1960s.

-Wow.

-When I used to send in lots of ideas and lots of competitions.

0:18:550:18:59

-Well, how proud are you of your school for following in your footsteps?

-Absolutely fantastic.

0:18:590:19:03

Thank you for coming on the show and showing us. They're amazing!

0:19:030:19:06

Nothing compares to actually getting a Blue Peter badge in the post.

0:19:060:19:09

I remember mine when I was ten and the magic never leaves so,

0:19:090:19:11

guys, thank you SO much for coming in. Fantastic.

0:19:110:19:14

Now, I can see lots of green badges, purple badges.

0:19:140:19:17

Are there any Blue Peter sport badges 2014?

0:19:170:19:20

Well, you need to know how to get your hands on one.

0:19:200:19:22

This is for inspiring a friend or family member to take

0:19:220:19:24

part in a sport that you love.

0:19:240:19:25

If you want to find out how you can get one,

0:19:250:19:27

head to the Blue Peter website.

0:19:270:19:29

Consider it an adventure for the summer.

0:19:290:19:31

Speaking of adventures,

0:19:310:19:32

someone who's very used to those is Chief Scout Bear Grylls

0:19:320:19:34

and I went to meet him

0:19:340:19:36

and if you're struggling for something to do this summer, check this out.

0:19:360:19:39

He's got loads of ideas.

0:19:390:19:40

Bear Grylls.

0:19:410:19:42

There is nothing this ex-SAS trooper doesn't know about surviving

0:19:420:19:46

extreme environments.

0:19:460:19:48

He's led record-breaking expeditions to the world's extremes,

0:19:480:19:52

climbed cliffs, jumped from helicopters

0:19:520:19:56

and even eaten scorpions.

0:19:560:19:59

You could say he wrote the book on extreme survival

0:19:590:20:02

but there's one thing this tough guy has NEVER had to contend with.

0:20:020:20:06

And that's me, Lindsey Russell.

0:20:060:20:09

-Hi, there. Nice to meet you.

-Nice to meet you too.

0:20:090:20:11

Now, I've got a bit of a Blue Peter challenge for you today.

0:20:110:20:14

Can you build a den out of these items?

0:20:140:20:16

Yeah, piece of cake.

0:20:160:20:17

Got a ground sheet.

0:20:220:20:23

We'll lay that out on the ground

0:20:230:20:25

so when you sit down, you don't get wet.

0:20:250:20:26

We've got some rope and I always say if you don't know knots, do lots.

0:20:260:20:30

-Then we've got a duvet cover. I love the colour.

-I really like it.

0:20:300:20:34

-Flowery and pink, quite camouflaged.

-This'll keep the predators away.

0:20:340:20:38

Grab an acorn, put it inside and then, you see,

0:20:380:20:42

it just kind of holds it in place so when you pull it.

0:20:420:20:45

It's not going to come off.

0:20:450:20:47

Then we've got some sticks.

0:20:470:20:48

If you did want to know one knot, this is my favourite.

0:20:480:20:51

It's called the clove hitch.

0:20:510:20:52

You make a loop and then another loop, one in front of the other,

0:20:520:20:56

stick through it, pull it tight and that will secure it.

0:20:560:21:01

Very nice job.

0:21:030:21:04

We're going to make a fire without any matches,

0:21:110:21:13

without any lighter, no blowtorches, nothing!

0:21:130:21:17

-That would be my first port of call.

-With that.

-Wow.

0:21:170:21:20

Right, so it's just called a firesteel.

0:21:200:21:22

All you're doing is putting that down,

0:21:220:21:24

and you're striking and you get a flame.

0:21:240:21:27

-I'll tell you what, we'll get you to do this. Go.

-Uh...

0:21:270:21:30

-Oh, no. You made it look so easy. Come on.

-Stick it right in there.

0:21:300:21:34

Ooh! Always stay safe around fire.

0:21:340:21:36

If you haven't got Bear to help, make sure you grab a grown-up.

0:21:360:21:39

-Yes!

-We've done it.

0:21:390:21:40

OK, now we get this onto it and then we get the kindling.

0:21:400:21:44

Now, all fires need three things. It's called the fire triangle.

0:21:440:21:48

If you don't have one of those things, the fire, like you,

0:21:500:21:53

-is going to die.

-OK.

0:21:530:21:55

So, this has the heat, which came from our initial spark,

0:21:550:21:58

the fuel, in all this nice wood, and the reason we do this

0:21:580:22:02

crisscross like a square is that it keeps the oxygen going in.

0:22:020:22:05

-Only one thing for it. I think we need a cup of tea.

-Yes!

0:22:050:22:08

Cheers!

0:22:080:22:10

We're going to do something now that I like to call Grilling Bear Grylls.

0:22:100:22:13

Blue Green Sparkly Acorn says, "What was your most frightening,

0:22:180:22:21

"terrifying, heart-thumping experience?"

0:22:210:22:24

Probably when I broke my back in a free-fall parachuting accident.

0:22:240:22:28

Should've died but survived.

0:22:280:22:29

Lived to tell the tale. Blue Netball Elephant says,

0:22:290:22:32

"What was the naughtiest thing you ever did at school?"

0:22:320:22:34

Probably the naughtiest was putting somebody's

0:22:340:22:37

underpants on the top of the school flagpole.

0:22:370:22:39

-It was at the very top and it was very high.

-Oh, no.

0:22:390:22:41

-Did you get told off?

-Well, they never found out who it was.

0:22:410:22:45

Oh, well, they know now.

0:22:450:22:46

Amber Leaping Lemur says, "If you were an animal, what would it be?"

0:22:460:22:49

I'd quite like to be my dog because he has the most nice, relaxed life.

0:22:490:22:53

Lies on his back and gets his tummy scratched, you know.

0:22:530:22:56

But in the wild, probably an eagle, just for sheer fun of flying.

0:22:560:23:01

Beryl Tiny Apricot says,

0:23:010:23:02

-"What is the most disgusting thing you've eaten?"

-Probably elephant poo,

0:23:020:23:07

er, in the wilds of Kenya once.

0:23:070:23:09

Why did you do that?

0:23:090:23:11

You can drink the juice out of elephant dung because they have

0:23:110:23:14

such fast digestions, it's almost sterile when it comes out.

0:23:140:23:17

It just might save your life, Lindsey, don't forget it!

0:23:170:23:19

I'll bear it in mind.

0:23:190:23:20

And last but not least, Cream Smiling Condor says, "Which animal or

0:23:200:23:24

"insect are you scared of?" Is there anything Bear Grylls is scared of?

0:23:240:23:28

I'm careful of the tarantulas because their hairs can kill you.

0:23:280:23:31

If you don't cook that tarantula well enough and swallow it

0:23:310:23:34

and it's still got some of those hairs, it will kill you.

0:23:340:23:36

I love that you said, "cook." I was expecting you to say just hold

0:23:360:23:39

or look at one but you're giving me tips on how to cook a tarantula.

0:23:390:23:42

I've eaten loads of tarantulas!

0:23:420:23:43

They're delicious if you burn them enough.

0:23:430:23:45

Hmm, again, I'm going to leave that one to you.

0:23:450:23:47

Bear, thank you so much.

0:23:470:23:49

It's been really good fun and thanks for the den!

0:23:490:23:51

You're probably not going to want to spend any more time camping

0:23:510:23:54

-after that now.

-No.

0:23:540:23:56

Hands up, who's building a den when they get home later on?

0:23:560:23:58

AUDIENCE: Me! Me!

0:23:580:24:00

-So much fun.

-Sold.

0:24:000:24:01

Well, that is all we've got time for today

0:24:010:24:03

but before we hear a performance from Union J, there is

0:24:030:24:05

-just enough time to see what's coming up on next week's show. It's special.

-It is.

0:24:050:24:09

I'm going to Switzerland to look

0:24:090:24:10

back at some of the extreme challenges we've taken on

0:24:100:24:13

and telling you about some exciting adventures we've got coming up.

0:24:130:24:16

But now, throw your hands in the air like you just don't care

0:24:160:24:19

because there's some really cool guys just over there.

0:24:190:24:21

It's their latest single.

0:24:210:24:23

It's their latest single, Tonight We Live Forever, it's Union J!

0:24:230:24:26

# Feels like a party every time you come around

0:24:390:24:43

# Even though it's just the two of us in my house

0:24:430:24:47

# I don't know what you do but you're making everything feel right

0:24:470:24:52

# I may not know much but this feels like love

0:24:520:25:00

# Ooh ooh oooh oooh oh oh oh

0:25:000:25:09

# I knew when I met you I was onto something good

0:25:090:25:13

# You made me love you like I thought I never could

0:25:130:25:17

# I have the best time every time you're by my side

0:25:170:25:22

# Cos we're living for tonight

0:25:220:25:26

# Tonight we'll live forever

0:25:260:25:28

# We'll live forever

0:25:280:25:30

# Do things we won't remember

0:25:300:25:33

# We won't remember

0:25:330:25:34

# But it's all good

0:25:340:25:35

# It's all good

0:25:350:25:36

# If we can we should

0:25:360:25:37

# If we can we should, yeah

0:25:370:25:38

# As long as we're together

0:25:380:25:42

# It's all good! Ooh oh oh

0:25:420:25:46

# It's all good! Ooh oh oh

0:25:460:25:51

# It's all good! Ooh oh oh

0:25:510:25:54

# You'll take a bad day and you'll make it feel all right

0:25:540:25:58

# It might be dark outside but you'll make my sun shine

0:25:580:26:02

# I don't know what you do but you're making everything feel right

0:26:020:26:07

# Cos this feels like love

0:26:070:26:11

# Tonight we'll live forever

0:26:110:26:14

# We'll live forever

0:26:140:26:16

# Do things we won't remember

0:26:160:26:18

# We won't remember

0:26:180:26:19

# But it's all good

0:26:190:26:20
