Coming up on today's show, see if we can break this...
See how to make this...
And see how to play this.
Hello! Can I just say, that game of football over there
is a game I want to play!
It is actually called bubble football, and today,
it's Team Newsround versus the Team CBBC Office.
Later on, we're going to check out how they get on.
The captains are Katie and Jenny. Good luck, bubble footballers!
Yes! And in case you haven't guessed it, it doesn't matter,
health and safety never takes a day off on Blue Peter.
Got it in early doors.
The reason we're in the Blue Peter garden is because we're here
to celebrate the World Cup in Brazil starting.
Think about the... Oh, I've got my own shot.
Hiya. Think about where it's being held, Rio.
What a beautiful country. You've got Samba dancing, the Amazon river,
the culture and the food. That got us thinking, didn't it?
It did. We want to know from you,
if you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I would have to go to Jamaica, because of the music, the salt fish,
-the jerk chicken...
-He could go on all day. You love Jamaica.
I think I would go to Times Square in New York and take my mum,
-we'd go shopping, see some shows, see some musicals.
Jack, there's an idea, where would you like to go?
Rio de Janeiro because of the football,
the World Cup games, the heat and the carnivals.
It's all about the sun, the carnivals the and football.
-Charlotte, where would you like to go?
I'd like to go to Australia,
to find out all the different types of animals
and to be in the sun.
I really like that.
Those are some great ideas, but as usual,
we want to hear from you at home.
We are a live show, get in touch
we'll try to read your comments out at the end of the show.
As many as we can. It's the usual address...
Where would you like to go and why?
Get in touch. Thank you.
See you later.
Back to Brazil now, 32 teams from all around the globe
are taking part in the World Cup,
making the World Cup the biggest football tournament
anywhere in the world.
At the moment, all eyes are on Rio,
but we know someone who's right in the heart of the action.
We couldn't be more jealous, it's Leah from Newsround!
Leah, what have you got in store?
I will be here for the next 16 days,
keeping a very close eye on the group stages for you.
I'll also be presenting
some of Newsround's 4.20pm bulletins on CBBC, live from Rio.
I'll be also acting as a roving reporter
for Match Of The Day Kickabout,
getting all the inside gossip, from here in Rio.
So, you will be really busy over the next few weeks!
This is the first football World Cup to use goal-line technology.
So what can we expect?
This World Cup promises to be the most hi tech ever.
The plan is that 14 high-speed cameras will be placed
in each of the stadiums, watching every movement of the ball.
If the ball crosses the line, then a vibration will
be sent to the referee's watch,
and the word "goal" will be flashed up within seconds.
Impressive stuff. So, hopefully no more mistakes,
like when Frank Lampard's goal was disallowed against Germany
in the 2010 World Cup. Leah, I'm going to put you on the spot,
what do you think England's chances are?
Well, England are in Group D, which I think is D for "danger".
They are up against teams like Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica -
all very strong teams. But unlike Brazil,
England don't have that same kind of pressure,
they have nothing to lose, they're not going into this tournament
with so much expectation on their shoulders.
They really do have some fantastic young stars that we
should all be keeping a close eye on -
Ross Barkley and Sterling.
But what they're doing is they're teaming that up
with the very strong and experienced players
like Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, that have that experience
from being in World Cups.
Now, their biggest hurdle, I think, will be the Brazilian heat.
They're playing their first game against Italy in the city of Manaus
that experiences temperatures of up to 30 degrees Celsius and higher.
This will be very energy sapping, it will be hot and sticky.
They are not used to playing 90 minutes in such strong heat.
It's pretty hot here too, you know.
It's boiling here in Salford Quays. We love it.
Remember, Match Of The Day Kickabout will be bringing you all
the action from the World Cup.
That's going to be every Saturday, 8.00am on CBBC.
Make sure you get up in time for it.
And the very first match actually starts tonight.
If you're not sure which team you think will win,
fear not, our resident superstar Shelley the Tortoise is on hand!
Hiya! Welcome to my World Cup prediction.
First game, Brazil versus Croatia.
She is such a superstar.
-I liked that voice, Lindsey.
-And she is going to be predicting
some of the games over the next seven days.
Make sure you head to the website - bbc.co.uk/bluepeter
and find out who Shelley thinks is going to win tonight,
the first game, which is Brazil versus Croatia.
And check back every single day for all of her predictions
and on next week's show, we'll let you know how she's got on.
Now, Radzi, did you know, there's over 4,000 official match balls
being used for the World Cup this year,
but none of them are quite like this one.
Indeed! The makers of this ball claim it is virtually indestructible.
So the big question is, can it stand up to the Blue Peter test?
No, Barney, not you!
Football, the beautiful game, or, as our American friends call it, soccer.
Football is the most popular sport on the planet.
And that means a lot of these - the humble football.
This is one of the balls used in the very first World Cup final,
way back in 1930.
There were actually two balls used in that final.
The first half ball was from Argentina,
and in the second half, that was provided by Uruguay.
It has taken the best brains and a lot of trials and testing
to go from this...to this.
The Brazuca - the official football for this year's World Cup in Brazil.
It's pretty clear that football designs have changed over the years,
from leather and low tech to synthetics and scientific styling.
That ball is over 100 years old and inside it is a real animal bladder.
We can see just how much the balls have varied
and have evolved with technology.
But I wonder, what could possibly be next?
It's a ball unlike any other, made with a unique material, and...
OK, so it's pretty average looking ball,
and it plays normally, too.
But apparently, this ball is indestructible.
That sounds like a Blue Peter challenge to me...
but how do I destroy this ball and where do I start?
At a scrap yard, of course!
Take it away, boys!
Based on a foam material commonly used in sports shoes,
this ball is said to be virtually indestructible.
It's time to push it to the extreme
and see exactly how much it can withstand.
Hang on, that ball just re-inflated!
A car falling on this ball did not pop it.
It's still good to go!
Well, if anything can put this ball to the test,
then surely it's the force of nature.
So we've come to a zoo to find out if this ball
really is indestructible.
Cue the animals!
Here you go, Anya.
Oh, look at that! And pass. Yes!
It's pretty clear, they like playing with the ball.
I think we'll have to find something else to destroy it.
When it comes to sheer stomping power,
nothing compares to the mighty elephant.
Let's see what its mammoth feet make of our indestructible ball.
She's not sure about the ball, is she?
Oh, so close!
As things stand, not that interested,
so our ball is still currently indestructible.
Our ball was left intact after the elephants,
but can it survive the most ferocious of them all, the tiger?
Let's see if this tiger can get her teeth around our indestructible ball?
She has got the ball in her mouth and she's using her claws...
Look at that. That's surely her teeth going through it.
This is incredible!
There is no way that ball can survive those teeth!
She has got it clamped in her mouth and she is not letting go!
I got my ball back!
Well, what is left of it.
Look at this, teeth marks, teeth marks, claw marks all over it.
So, it is virtually indestructible,
except if you put it in a tiger's enclosure.
But do you know though? This is actually, it still works like a ball!
So with the ball still kind of functioning,
it's time to step things up a gear. New ball, please.
If only we had something big and heavy, like camouflaged vehicle,
one that would work on tracks,
because then it would just crush this ball! It would just...!
What would work?
A-TEAM THEME TUNE PLAYS
So, it's indestructible ball versus 56 tonnes worth of tank.
I can't believe we're actually about to do this.
Here we go!
Just a puff of air! And it's flattened!
Look at that!
That was just squashed flat.
And this ball, it is not going to come back at all, is it?
It's not a ball, it's a Frisbee... It's a hat, is what it is!
It's a hat.
So, it's indestructible ball, destroyed.
Wait! It's re-inflated!
This is the same one. Look at the track marks.
It's not a hat. It's a football and it's indestructible! Yes!
And, Barney, this is the ball that the tiger tore to shreds.
-Look at it!
-It's unbelievable. Can you still play with it?
England wouldn't use it in their match against Italy,
but you can still kick it! Look at that.
You are in so much trouble.
That's awkward. I'm going to... Sorry.
Follow me over here.
Radzi's very excited about the World Cup starting this week,
but it's not just that event happening this weekend,
it's also fathers' day.
We're going to show you how to make this.
If you've forgotten a card and a present, don't worry,
because this is two for the price of one.
It's a card and it's also a photo frame,
cos the letters that say "Dad" come off and actually stand up.
How much genius is in that?! We'll show you how to make this.
Let's say hello to people who are here.
Hello, people who are here. Say your names in loud and happy voices.
Thanks for joining us. This is a fathers' day card
but it can be for anybody.
If you look at the front,
you can see lots of different ideas for inspiration.
It can be for Tony, Dad - it can be for anyone you like.
Rhoda, who are you making it for?
-Father David, a friend from the church, and he's leaving.
You can do it for whoever you want.
Let's talk about the stuff that we need to make this card. Rhoda?
You need two A4 pieces of coloured card, and a pair of scissors.
-You need a roll of Sellotape and some paperclips.
You also need a photo of you or the person you are doing your card for.
Loads of decorations, we've got glitter and some coloured pens.
You four are amazing presenters,
do you want a job on the show? You'd be ace!
All the details are on the website,
but first, we are going to show you how to make it.
First things first, you cut out the name of the person
you are sending it to. Either "Dad" or whichever name you pick.
You need to write it down on a piece of coloured card.
-Guys, how are you getting on? Picked all your names?
It's very simple. An important tip when you are writing the name out
is that it has to be joined up,
otherwise it will not stand up as a photo frame.
I'm doing this in pen, but you can do it in pencil first to make sure
you don't make any mistakes and to save you card.
Once it's done, it looks a little bit like that.
Don't forget to leave quite big windows in the letters,
cos that is where you are going to put your photographs.
-Rhoda, have you got your pictures?
Who have we got? David. Let's have a look.
Show him to Camera Two. There's Rob over there.
Father David, what a legend!
He's now famous cos he's been on the telly. Francesco?
-I've got my dad.
-Let's have a look.
Go on, Dad. Look at that proud smile from Francesco.
That's the coolest name ever, by the way, Francesco.
I'm nicking that for my new dog. Casey?
I'm doing mine for my dad and my brother.
Is that your brother when he was little or is he still that little?
No, it was when he was little.
Aw, beautiful. Dad will love that. Sean, how about you?
-I'm putting, "You're an epic dad" on mine.
-I like what you did.
You can put any message you like.
First we're going to talk about cutting out the letters
you've drawn. You can cut them out usually, just by keeping them
all together, by going around the outside,
and then, for the middle - a top tip for this -
if you put a compass in the centre of the letter and make a hole,
then carefully push one end of the scissors through it,
that's how you get the hole to cut round. Dead easy.
Now, you can either put
the paperclips straight onto the back to stand it up.
Or, when you're cutting this out, if you fold the card in half,
you'll end up with another shape like that you can put behind it,
so it makes it nice and sturdy and also looks neater as well.
For me, I'll be sticking the photos onto the letters at the back,
cos it's easier. You can use a bit of glue to do that.
Can you pass the colours over, to Rhoda? She's getting creative.
Once you've stuck these on,
the genius bit for me is how we use the paperclips.
They will stand the photo frame up.
Francesco, can I get your help with this?
There's some tape on the table.
Can you tape that bit for me? The L-shape.
Beautifully done, thank you. Then one on the other side for me.
Beautifully done. There you can see, when they're stuck on,
that gives you the stand to prop up your lovely photo frame.
I'll move that out the way. It's beautifully done.
A good tip is to take the letters that you've done,
fold the paperclips back up again,
put them onto the side of the card you're going to cut out.
Put them onto the bottom.
That way you know what you're working with at the top,
and how much space you have for your message.
Stick those on, two marks either side,
tells you how much space you have. Then you can put your message on.
What have you got, Rhoda?
Father David, cos he is leaving.
-You've put, "You're the best."
I've got my dad and "You are out of this world."
-I've got my dad. Because...
-Cos he's cool.
-Sean, let's have a look at yours. Plenty of glitter there.
There you have it. You can make a lot of mess like Sean has.
If you take a picture of yours, send it to us - bbc.co.uk/bluepeter.
You never know, your artwork
could end up in the Blue Peter Makes and Bakes gallery.
That would be amazing to see on TV.
Guys, thank you, that was brilliant.
Don't forget to send us your photos, which you do every week anyway.
It's not just pictures, but also interactive artwork as well,
as you can see from the big Blue Peter badge board... Thanks, Linds.
Now, you lot have been getting super creative.
Have a look at this, it's from Poppy.
She sent me a badge. It goes with my nails and my trousers.
I don't know how you planned that,
but I really appreciate it. Thank you.
And check this out from Joe. He's from Southsea.
He's done the World Cup surrounded by all the flags of all
the nations, the 32 nations taking part in the World Cup this year.
-Thank you for your great post.
-Talking about World Cup trophies,
Harry from Bristol has made a replica of the World Cup
and Harry obviously thinks England is going to win.
You can tell by looking at the England flag colours.
And I couldn't go without showing you Mia from Jersey
who's made this beautiful environmental collage of a tree
featured with her green Blue Peter badge,
which is winging its way over to you now. Well done.
Check out Lulu's picture, it moves and everything.
This is an interactive piece of artwork,
the horses and the carriages move.
-I think Lindsey's in the lead, Radzi.
-My favourite picture in the whole wide world ever
in 20 years, is that one by Matthew from Cambridge.
Look at that bike. Knee sliding. Sponsored by Team Blue Peter.
-I love it!
-Thank you so much for your great post.

So, go on, be inspiring and get involved.
Thanks, Barney in voice form. It really is that simple.
All you've got to do is get in touch
and you can get yourself one of these.
That's right. And the very best thing about it this year
is you could end up on the actual judging panel
to decide who will be the winner
of BBC's Young Sports Personality of the Year 2014.
-I think that's amazing.
-I know that.
Last day I was on the panel and got behind-the-scenes exclusive access.
So, to remind ourselves how awesome that was, check this out.
It has been another huge year for sport.
I've been lucky enough to be part of a panel
who are going to determine the final three contenders.
Then there will be a secret ballot which will determine the winner.
If you look at the headlines - World, Europe, Medal.
That's, for me, the bottom line.
I was honoured to be part of this panel. I was privileged.
It's tough to get it down to just the one person you want to win.
Jess, definitely. 100%.
It is a real honour to be part of this year's panel.
Hopefully we'll all agree on a worthy winner.
Right, we're down to our three then,
so we have an athlete...
a shooter and a golfer.
So, that's it. The winner will be announced live
on the Sports Personality of the Year ceremony.
But we can't wait till then!
We're here. The very first Sports Personality of the Year
took place way back in 1954, but that was in London.
This year's star-studded event
is in Leeds and the capacity audience is over 12,000 people.
It really is set to be some celebration.
The atmosphere is really beginning to hot up.
Sadly, I am not lucky enough to get to walk down the red carpet myself,
but I am going to get to meet those that are.
To be here and to enjoy that
and experience these wonderful achievements,
It is always fun celebrating British sport
so I'm sure it'll be amazing.
I am so excited, it's a dream come true.
It's something that as a kid I watched it on TV and was like,
"I'll be in that room one year."
How important is sport for children?
I think it's very important.
First of all, being involved in sport, it teaches discipline.
-Are you nervous?
-Maybe a little bit
but I'm enjoying the whole experience,
it's a once in a lifetime thing. So I'm making the most of it.
To win it is really special but to be nominated is to say
what you've achieved this year is amazing.
It's amazing. I didn't know I was going to be nominated in the ten.
So to have made the three is surreal. I'm just happy to be here.
I'm not just here to watch.
I have got an important job to do as a seat filler.
That means when people leave their seat to collect awards,
I'll fill in so that the arena audience always looks full
to the viewers at home.
But I'm not allowed to take the Blue Peter team with me. So...
We have a button cam...
And we have a hand-held cam.
I am very excited to find out who I'll meet.
The arena is full and I'm nervously waiting
to fill my first seat. Here we go.
Let's start with the rugby union.
'There I am! And again!'
Could you wave to Blue Peter?
I'm enjoying my retirement.
'Look - it's me!'
I'm backstage waiting for the announcement
of Young Sports Personality of the Year 2013.
We know the top three, but the question is,
which of those outstanding sportswomen
will be crowned the winner?
The 2013 Young Sports Personality is Amber Hill.
I really can't believe I've won this award
out of so many amazing athletes that were nominated for it.
Amber Hill, how are you feeling?
I never would have thought that I'd get this award.
It's just incredible. I can't contain my excitement.
-What went through your head when they said your name?
I was just so excited. My mum was like, "Well done, well done."
Going up was a bit scary but I loved the whole experience.
It was amazing.
Thank you so much and congratulations
to the other athletes who were nominated for this award.
So there we have it.
Young Sports Personality of the Year 2013, Amber Hill.
Remember, that could be YOU by the way!
All you have to do is on the sports badge application form
simply tick the box and answer the question
why you would be a great judge of Sports Personality of the Year.
-There's a lot going on.
-That's why I'm laughing.
Behind us we can see the CBBC Newsround team versus
the CBBC office bubble football match is in full swing.
-It's time to do one thing. BOTH:
OK, there's a lot of carnage here.
We've got a ball in. We have one person over!
Let's help Jenny up.
-Are you up, Jenny?
-There's a ball in. It's in the back of the net!
There has been a goal!
In yellow is Katie's team, Orange is Newsround.
We've got a lot of people on the floor.
-A lot of men down.
-I think there's half the team down, half up.
-Katie is on the floor and doesn't not seem able to get up.
If this was ten pin bowling, there would be strikes
left, right and centre.
-This is unbelievable.
-Can Katie score again? No!
Jenny's just about saved it there.
There's more dives than Tom Daley's Olympic debut.
-WHISTLE BLOWS Oh!
That is the final whistle.
There was some controversy there.
There were two balls on the pitch at one stage
and there was a goal that went in over there.
I'm not sure who was shooting. Katie, Jenny, get over here.
That really was amazing. Go that way.
Come over here, Jenny. We're all friends here.
Katie, how was that?
You've got a plaster on your head which doesn't bode well.
I've not sustained injury. That was a previous one. I'm hot and sweaty.
-My ponytail has come out but very good fun.
Jenny, I've got a genuine question for you -
which way where you shooting?
-I can't even see.
I spent most of my time on my front.
The good news is it was 1-0 to... Team Newsround!
Now, when it comes to bubble football,
there's one trophy that the likes of Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo
all want to get their hands on - it's a trophy in a balloon!
And it goes to the bubble football team of Newsround.
Congrat... Give them a round of applause!
-They're both looking quite hot.
We asked you to get in touch today
and talk to us about where you would most like to go and why.
This is inspired by the Rio whatsit,
where they're playing World Cup. You can tell I'm into football.
So, Ivory Musical Jedi says "I would visit the Valley of the Kings
"in Egypt so I could discover a new tomb or pyramid."
Careful of that curse.
Apricot Springy Cat - that's a genius name.
"I would go to go to Hawaii because of the big waves and surfing."
I would love to learn how to surf. Brilliant.
Peach Noisy Elf says, "I would like to visit Ireland
"cos it has an interesting history and I like the accent."
That's a good reason to go. Radzi's out of breath.
I am, yes.
Lavender Witty Dove says, "I'd love to go to Costa Rica
"cos it's hot, lots of beaches and they have sloths."
-I love sloths! Cos they're lazy like me.
-They're very cute.
Peachy Noisy Elf, "I would like to visit Ireland
"cos it has an interesting history and I like the accent."
Yes, you do. Brilliant.
Totes Wacky Monkey says, "I would visit Alaska so I could..." Oh, no.
-"..so I could see whales and dolphins."
I would be so scared! You're a braver person than me!
-I can feel a Blue Peter challenge coming on for you.
Mega Croc says, "I'd travel to Athens and Greece
"to find out more about Greek gods." My favourite's Hermes.
Thank you for your comments.
Time to tell you what's coming up on next week's jam-packed show.
You want to see this. We've a cute customer visiting the studio.
He really is so cute. We've been keeping this secret for weeks.
It's time to finally introduce you to our Blue Peter guide dog puppy.
And it's going to be in the studio, live next week.
Don't laugh too hard.
That's me and Lindsey dancing. That is the Lindy Hop.
We were entered into an actual competition. Find out how we get on.
-Now, big smiles and big waves. We'll see you next week.
To celebrate the start of the World Cup, it's a Brazilian-themed special this week on Blue Peter! We're live from the piazza at Media City with a game of 'bubble football'. Plus a link-up with Newsround's Leah Gooding in Brazil, the world's first indestructible football and a special father's day make.
