On today's show, we're going hovercraft crazy.

6:30:356:30:38

Find out how Barney and I got on when we got to race hovercrafts.

6:30:386:30:41

And we'll show you how to make your very own mini version

6:30:416:30:44

on our live make-along.

6:30:446:30:46

We'll show you how to make your very own rainbow wrap

6:30:466:30:48

with celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver.

6:30:486:30:50

All coming up on today's live Blue Peter. Let's go!

6:30:506:30:53

Hi, hello, how are you doing? You're watching Blue Peter.

6:31:176:31:21

Say hello to our Blue Peter dancers. Thanks, guys, that was beautiful.

6:31:216:31:24

I'm going to have a word with the bosses.

6:31:246:31:26

I think we should travel into work like that every week.

6:31:266:31:29

I absolutely loved that, it was so much fun.

6:31:296:31:30

If you want to make your very own mini hovercraft, keep watching.

6:31:306:31:33

You'll need some items later on in the show. Robin, hold them up.

6:31:336:31:38

You will need a balloon and you will need an old DVD or CD.

6:31:386:31:41

-Also, Mohammed, what else?

-You will need a sports cup and sticky tack.

6:31:416:31:45

Beautifully done.

6:31:456:31:46

So keep watching to find out how to make that later on in the show.

6:31:466:31:49

I think it's fair to say that the hovercraft is a pretty unique

6:31:496:31:52

way of travelling and I think it's wicked.

6:31:526:31:54

If I could design my own hovercraft or even a mode of transport,

6:31:546:31:57

I'd probably let my imagination run wild.

6:31:576:31:58

What would you do if you could design your own type of transportation?

6:31:586:32:02

What would it be and why?

6:32:026:32:03

I'd go for a Blue Peter ship.

6:32:036:32:05

In the air, it would be like a rocket

6:32:056:32:06

and under water it would be like a submarine.

6:32:066:32:08

-A three in one.

-I love that.

6:32:086:32:10

I'd go for something with the green badge that is good for the environment.

6:32:106:32:13

-Maybe like a windsurfing thing on wheels.

-I like it.

6:32:136:32:16

What would you do? That's not where your mouth is!

6:32:166:32:19

I would choose a James Bond car that can go in the water,

6:32:196:32:23

a multi-terrain car.

6:32:236:32:25

A wicked idea, thank you very much.

6:32:276:32:29

What would you do? Get in touch and let us know.

6:32:296:32:31

-What about Lucia?

-Oh, is she doing it as well?

6:32:316:32:33

-She has a great idea.

-I do apologise. This is your moment!

6:32:336:32:36

What would you do?

6:32:366:32:38

I would make a pedal bike that could fly and go under water.

6:32:386:32:42

I am so glad I came to speak to you, it's such a good suggestion.

6:32:426:32:45

Now, stand back! Send in your comments.

6:32:456:32:48

Let us know what you would create.

6:32:496:32:51

Be really inventive and at the end of the show,

6:32:516:32:53

we will read as many of your comments as we can.

6:32:536:32:56

A couple of weeks ago, we found out we were going to be

6:32:566:32:58

racing each other, Radzi and I, in a Blue Peter challenge.

6:32:586:33:01

I actually brought my trainers along when I met Barney.

6:33:016:33:04

This is Blue Peter, I probably should have known better.

6:33:046:33:06

This is a race with a difference.

6:33:066:33:09

Here on Blue Peter, we are one big, happy family.

6:33:106:33:12

But it's always good to throw in a bit of healthy

6:33:126:33:15

competition from time to time.

6:33:156:33:16

Exactly, which is why we're going to go head-to-head

6:33:166:33:19

against each other in the National Hovercraft Championships.

6:33:196:33:23

Welcome to the world of hovercraft racing.

6:33:236:33:25

180 horsepower, 90 miles an hour, and no brakes.

6:33:256:33:30

Hovercraft racing is not for the faint hearted.

6:33:306:33:33

You said no brakes?

6:33:336:33:34

Yeah, no brakes.

6:33:366:33:37

Barney, no brakes?

6:33:406:33:42

Hovercrafts aren't just difficult to stop but also to drive.

6:33:426:33:45

The big powerful fan blows air underneath the craft

6:33:456:33:48

to lift it off the ground so helping us to stay in control is this man,

6:33:486:33:52

F2 racer, Marc Bradley-Upton.

6:33:526:33:54

Hi, Mark, nice to meet you.

6:33:546:33:56

-Good morning, guys.

-I am very excited, how about you?

6:33:566:34:00

-These look incredible.

-Where do we even start to learn?

6:34:006:34:04

The first thing I want to show you is what can go wrong,

6:34:046:34:07

if you drop the throttle on a corner.

6:34:076:34:09

You can go up to that under 10 miles an hour.

6:34:116:34:14

At that point, you will get thrown out of the hovercraft.

6:34:146:34:18

What I'm going to show you is how not to do that.

6:34:186:34:21

Lesson one, we could fall out of it. OK, good.

6:34:216:34:24

Lesson two, I'll show you how to steer it.

6:34:246:34:27

Just jump into the centre. The most important thing.

6:34:276:34:32

You have a kill switch that goes around your throttle wrist,

6:34:326:34:34

underneath the handlebars and onto this button here.

6:34:346:34:37

That is your fail safe.

6:34:376:34:39

If you want to stop at any time,

6:34:396:34:40

-pull that button off, that will kill the engine.

-That's our panic button?

6:34:406:34:44

Yes. Never sit down in a hovercraft.

6:34:446:34:47

You need to move your body weight around.

6:34:476:34:50

Your handlebars which push those little bits at the back.

6:34:506:34:52

Nice and easy with those because you have nothing touching the floor.

6:34:526:34:56

Steering then.

6:34:566:34:57

If you want to turn left, handlebars back toward your tummy,

6:34:576:35:00

weight to your left and when you're in the corner, you accelerate.

6:35:006:35:04

Don't accelerate before you get to the corner.

6:35:056:35:07

In the ridiculous scenario that I happen to forget what I am doing...

6:35:076:35:12

-In the very likely scenario!

-What happens to me?

6:35:126:35:15

-You'll probably end up on the grass.

-That will make great telly though!

6:35:156:35:19

Everybody wants to see that, they're all saying they want to see that.

6:35:196:35:22

-My job is to make sure that you don't come out.

-Shall we get in?

6:35:226:35:26

Let's get in.

6:35:266:35:27

It was time to put our training to the test

6:35:326:35:34

and I was starting to get the hang of it. Unlike someone else.

6:35:346:35:38

Slow and steady wins the race, Barney.

6:35:396:35:42

Yes, you're meant to go in between the flags, Radz, not over them!

6:35:426:35:45

Yeah, yeah, I'm just warming up!

6:35:486:35:50

We've kind of mastered land so now, let's try water. I love it!

6:35:546:36:00

As you can see, Radzi...

6:36:016:36:05

-he loves it too.

-Go, go, go!

6:36:056:36:08

That's it, practice over.

6:36:116:36:13

Now we have to race these things and the only way we can

6:36:136:36:15

is by doing a driving test.

6:36:156:36:17

But not only that, we have to pass that test in order to race.

6:36:176:36:20

-Who's going to go first? BOTH:

-You're going first!

6:36:206:36:22

-BOTH:

-I'm not going first.

6:36:226:36:24

This could take a while.

6:36:246:36:27

We didn't have a while, it was time to meet Lee Willers, our examiner.

6:36:276:36:31

Let the tests begin!

6:36:316:36:32

Nervous about this test?

6:36:326:36:34

-Yes.

-I'm very nervous about the test.

-Can I ask a couple of questions?

6:36:346:36:38

First of all, how would you stop the engine?

6:36:386:36:41

-You can pull the choke.

-Or you can put out the leads

6:36:426:36:45

which would take the spark out of the plugs.

6:36:456:36:48

Flags. A red flag, what does that mean?

6:36:486:36:51

A red flag, stop when safe to do so.

6:36:516:36:53

A waved yellow flag?

6:36:536:36:55

A waved yellow flag means there is a craft in front of you

6:36:556:36:57

who has some kind of failure and it's in your path.

6:36:576:37:01

I need to be aware that I'll possibly have to deviate out of my line.

6:37:016:37:04

The exact word is, proceed with caution. Be prepared to stop.

6:37:046:37:08

-So, you will prepare to start the engine.

-I genuinely feel nervous.

6:37:106:37:13

-Lose the nerves.

-Now, for the practical part of our driving tests.

6:37:136:37:17

Time to start our engines. Yes, whenever you're ready, Radzi.

6:37:176:37:21

-Like this!

-Yeah, yeah, I've got this.

6:37:216:37:24

The course involves us going in and out of flags...

6:37:266:37:28

..a 360 degree turn, successfully driving on and off the water.

6:37:306:37:36

Then ending exactly where we started.

6:37:366:37:38

-Have we passed?

-Your entry to the water was a little bit too quick.

6:37:416:37:46

Oh, dear! You just stayed in that lean a little bit too long. OK?

6:37:466:37:51

-This isn't looking good.

-No problem, you passed!

-Yes! Get in!

6:37:516:37:56

Thanks very much, that's brilliant news.

6:37:566:37:59

-I've passed?

-Yes.

-Yes! Get in!

6:37:596:38:02

-Did you pass?

-Yes, I passed, did you pass?

-Yes, I did. Nice!

6:38:046:38:07

I cannot wait.

6:38:076:38:09

What a great day it's been, we have learnt so much,

6:38:096:38:11

we've passed our driving test, bring on the race!

6:38:116:38:13

-You're going down, Barney!

-I will if the engine fails!

6:38:136:38:18

It goes up and down. No?

6:38:186:38:20

I thought that was air-some! No? I'm a big fan.

6:38:206:38:23

I'll stop.

6:38:236:38:25

That guy with the hairy face is funny.

6:38:256:38:27

Do you know how much fun that was? It was unreal.

6:38:276:38:31

Hovercraft test in the bag, game face is on now because later on

6:38:316:38:35

we'll go head-to-head in the actual hovercraft race, so stay watching.

6:38:356:38:38

Before you see that, you'll know tomorrow is Food Revolution Day.

6:38:386:38:43

Lots of schools are getting involved and I'm a bit nosy

6:38:436:38:45

so I went to London to meet a very special man.

6:38:456:38:47

-Oh!

-No, not you!

6:38:476:38:49

Summer is here. Well, kind of.

6:38:516:38:54

The flowers are in full bloom, the birds are singing

6:38:546:38:56

and there's a smell of food revolution in the air.

6:38:566:38:59

It smells good.

6:38:596:39:00

I think I might follow my nose and find out a bit more about it

6:39:006:39:03

with none other than world-famous chef, Jamie Oliver.

6:39:036:39:06

Let's talk about May 16th, Food Revolution is nearly here.

6:39:066:39:09

We're celebrating food.

6:39:096:39:11

And the importance of food and getting kids engaged with food.

6:39:116:39:14

Basically, getting kids cooking.

6:39:146:39:16

Touching, feeling, bashing, chopping, tasting, smelling, trying new things.

6:39:166:39:20

This year is really exciting because we're going for a world record,

6:39:206:39:23

a million kids doing the same cooking class in 24 hours.

6:39:236:39:28

The green Blue Peter badge is given for doing things for the environment

6:39:286:39:31

or for getting involved at home, growing your own fruit and veg.

6:39:316:39:33

Is it an easy thing to do, can you grow your own veg at home?

6:39:336:39:36

When you grow your own veg, you can grow in a little window box

6:39:366:39:40

at the top of a block of flats.

6:39:406:39:42

You don't have to have a big garden or anything like that.

6:39:426:39:44

You could do it at school obviously, and a lot of schools are doing it.

6:39:446:39:47

That is a regular beetroot, you might think, ew!

6:39:476:39:50

Look over here, look how exciting they get.

6:39:506:39:53

These are different varieties

6:39:536:39:55

and my kids all grew these for the last five years and they love it.

6:39:556:39:59

We shred them into salads, really cool. Food can be exciting.

6:39:596:40:03

So, Barney, it's really simple.

6:40:036:40:05

We're going to make wraps for six people.

6:40:056:40:07

We need six wraps, we need two beetroots, two carrots, a pear,

6:40:076:40:12

150 grams of cabbage.

6:40:126:40:14

It's time to get grating but mind your fingers!

6:40:146:40:18

I'm using a pear here, I'll just grate that.

6:40:186:40:21

And the stalks and the seeds, it all goes in.

6:40:216:40:24

It's a bit like a sand castle because if I pull it up, look what we've got.

6:40:246:40:27

We're just going to push that into the bowl.

6:40:276:40:30

Wow, look at all that colour. It looks amazing.

6:40:306:40:33

That goes in as well.

6:40:336:40:34

We washed our hands before we started this, by the way.

6:40:346:40:38

I've got some mint here.

6:40:386:40:39

You grab that and roll it up in your hands and just tear it.

6:40:396:40:43

Actually, it being bruised like this, brings out lots of flavour.

6:40:436:40:47

Do you know what I like about this? There's no chopping, no knives.

6:40:476:40:51

Rip it all up, stick it in a bowl and you can eat it. It's dead easy.

6:40:516:40:53

Absolutely.

6:40:536:40:55

It's super, super healthy and by the time I dress it up,

6:40:556:40:58

which is our next job,

6:40:586:40:59

we're going to make a jam jar dressing.

6:40:596:41:02

To your jam jar you're going to add five tablespoons of natural yoghurt,

6:41:026:41:06

half a teaspoon of English mustard,

6:41:066:41:08

three teaspoons of vinegar, we're using cider vinegar

6:41:086:41:12

but any will do, and two tablespoons extra virgin olive oil.

6:41:126:41:16

I'm going to do this up, use a jam jar, use an airtight jar.

6:41:166:41:19

Now you've got to shake it.

6:41:196:41:20

You can buy these anywhere, I take it, these jam jars?

6:41:206:41:22

Yeah, or recycle.

6:41:226:41:23

So any jam jar you use, keep them,

6:41:236:41:25

they are perfect for making dressings.

6:41:256:41:27

Once you've made that, that will keep in the fridge for a week.

6:41:276:41:30

-Pour it all in.

-Yeah.

6:41:306:41:32

From a height, come on.

6:41:326:41:34

It's run out now! Now have a toss-up.

6:41:346:41:36

-It smells amazing.

-Now, that's enough. So here is our plate.

6:41:366:41:41

We have a wrap, that goes in there.

6:41:416:41:43

We are then going to go over, we'll divide this into six.

6:41:436:41:45

We're going to put it into our wrap like this.

6:41:456:41:48

So we've got our rainbow wrap going on there.

6:41:486:41:50

But, no, we're not going to stop at that! Do you like cheese?

6:41:506:41:53

-Yeah, I like cheese.

-Crumble the feta cheese

6:41:536:41:55

and just crumple it into little bits like snow from a height.

6:41:556:41:58

-It's all about the drama as well.

-No, it's about even distribution,

6:41:586:42:01

but if you want to show off and call it drama then you can.

6:42:016:42:03

-I'm pretending it's Christmas here.

-Typical!

6:42:036:42:05

And then finally, to fold your delicious wrap,

6:42:056:42:08

fold up the bottom first to stop your filling from falling out.

6:42:086:42:11

And then fold over one side and roll. And there you have it.

6:42:116:42:15

-Am I doing it?

-Put it in there and let your face tell the story

6:42:156:42:19

of the rainbow wrap.

6:42:196:42:21

That is well nice!

6:42:246:42:25

Which leaves us with one thing to say, really.

6:42:256:42:28

-And that's a wrap.

-It is a wrap.

6:42:286:42:30

Did you write that line?

6:42:306:42:31

Yeah, I'm going to go now.

6:42:316:42:33

Thank you so much to Jamie for inviting us down and letting

6:42:356:42:38

-us share that amazing recipe.

-HE COUGHS

6:42:386:42:40

Gesundheit. It really is amazing.

6:42:406:42:41

If you want to have a go at making your own rainbow wrap...

6:42:416:42:44

MAKES POPPING NOISES

6:42:446:42:45

Beautiful, it's like an echo in here!

6:42:456:42:47

..head over to the Blue Peter website where you can send us pics.

6:42:476:42:50

You can have a go and show us what you've made, and send it to us

6:42:506:42:52

because we're all very hungry people.

6:42:526:42:54

I actually saved the rainbow wrap, the one that Jamie made.

6:42:546:42:57

How often does that happen? A top celebrity chef actually served me.

6:42:576:43:01

All right, guys, what are you up to?

6:43:016:43:02

-Oh.

-Erm.

-Put it away. We just...

6:43:026:43:05

Erm... We've changed into our green badges, the green badge wall.

6:43:056:43:08

-Are you eating something?

-Sorry?

6:43:086:43:10

No, we're just looking at the green badge wall.

6:43:106:43:13

There is absolutely loads of post from you this week,

6:43:136:43:15

thank you so much.

6:43:156:43:17

Less about food and more about Isabella from south Wales,

6:43:176:43:19

who's made this incredible collage with all different materials.

6:43:196:43:22

And even on the back it tells us how to look after our gardens.

6:43:226:43:26

-Well done, Isabella.

-This is from Abbey, she's from London.

6:43:266:43:30

She has made this amazing Blue Peter bag for life that even says

6:43:306:43:33

"Keep Our Earth Green." We love that, thank you so much, Abbey.

6:43:336:43:37

I like it. Check out Fabia's, look at this.

6:43:376:43:39

Talk about being creative, she has made her own garden which

6:43:396:43:42

sends out the message you should not throw litter.

6:43:426:43:45

Look at the amount of work that has gone into this.

6:43:456:43:47

We've got a path, we've got a robin,

6:43:476:43:48

we got flowers and trees that are 3-D.

6:43:486:43:51

It's amazing, well worthy of a green Blue Peter badge.

6:43:516:43:53

Congratulations to everybody.

6:43:536:43:55

Thank you so much for sending in your post.

6:43:556:43:57

Remember, all the Blue Peter badges are brilliant. Check these out!

6:43:576:44:02

Wow!

6:44:026:44:04

Any one of these can get you into over 200 attractions in the UK

6:44:046:44:08

for free, so head to the website and check out all the details.

6:44:086:44:11

All sorts of attractions, you've got wildlife parks, theme parks,

6:44:116:44:14

aquariums, museums.

6:44:146:44:16

In fact, only last week I was in a museum to meet a very cool guy

6:44:166:44:19

called Damian Dibben. Are we changing cameras?

6:44:196:44:21

Hi, I like this side.

6:44:216:44:22

He's called Damian Dibben and he's really cool.

6:44:226:44:25

He's written so many books

6:44:256:44:26

that've been published in 40 different countries.

6:44:266:44:28

They've been translated into 26 different languages.

6:44:286:44:30

He uses all the objects around him for inspiration,

6:44:306:44:33

so a museum is a perfect place to go to get just that inspiration.

6:44:336:44:36

-Thanks.

-Got some washing up, mate.

6:44:366:44:39

That was my Jamie Oliver wrap!

6:44:396:44:40

I'm here at the National Maritime Museum in London

6:44:446:44:47

to meet an amazing author called Damian Dibben.

6:44:476:44:50

He uses things you find in museums to write amazing stories.

6:44:506:44:53

So let's go and see what we can find.

6:44:536:44:55

Now, you probably know that museums are where we keep

6:44:596:45:02

old stuff for safekeeping.

6:45:026:45:04

This museum is full of stories of discovery and adventures at sea.

6:45:046:45:08

I've found my biggest fan!

6:45:096:45:11

Have a look at this, this is the actual coat that Admiral Nelson

6:45:116:45:14

was wearing at the Battle of Trafalgar.

6:45:146:45:16

You can even see the bullet hole in the shoulder where he was shot.

6:45:166:45:19

It's all very well having the inspiration,

6:45:236:45:26

but you need to know how to put it together into a story.

6:45:266:45:28

So I need to find Damien for some top tips.

6:45:286:45:31

-You must be Damien.

-Hi.

6:45:316:45:32

-How are you doing? I'm Barney.

-How are you?

6:45:326:45:34

Nice to meet you, I'm very well.

6:45:346:45:36

It was the notepad and pen that gave away that you're an author.

6:45:366:45:39

I'm taking notes, I'm doing some drawings.

6:45:396:45:41

Where do you find the inspiration for your stories?

6:45:416:45:43

History is the greatest story of them all.

6:45:436:45:46

What's even more incredible about it, it's all true.

6:45:466:45:49

So just think of the incredible cast of people you've got

6:45:496:45:52

from history, all the inventors, the explorers,

6:45:526:45:54

the people who changed the world, the conquerors but also all the villains.

6:45:546:45:58

And, interestingly, this week over the weekend is Museums at Night week,

6:45:586:46:03

600 museums are going to be open and the public can go

6:46:036:46:07

and see the special exhibitions.

6:46:076:46:09

I'm doing a talk in Guildford Castle, in an old medieval hall.

6:46:096:46:13

It's going to be a really special night.

6:46:136:46:16

Let's talk about the History Keepers.

6:46:166:46:18

For those that haven't read it, what's it about?

6:46:186:46:20

Basically it's about a 14-year-old boy called Jake Jones

6:46:206:46:22

who finds out his parents are lost in history,

6:46:226:46:25

they are missing in history and he has to join this Secret Service

6:46:256:46:28

called the History Keepers to track them down.

6:46:286:46:30

If you were to give three top tips on things to think about

6:46:306:46:33

while you're writing a story, what would they be?

6:46:336:46:36

Passion for the story.

6:46:366:46:38

I think interest in the world and all the great people who've been in it.

6:46:386:46:44

And I think also discipline.

6:46:446:46:46

You need to set aside your time or amount of words you're going

6:46:466:46:50

to do a day and really stick to it,

6:46:506:46:51

that's the only way you ever get a story finished.

6:46:516:46:54

I've been inspired today, thanks very much, Damian.

6:46:546:46:56

I'm going to have a look at a few things,

6:46:566:46:58

see if I can write a story.

6:46:586:46:59

But before I go I have to give you this,

6:46:596:47:01

you've well and truly earned it.

6:47:016:47:02

The most famous ship of all, the Blue Peter. Congratulations.

6:47:026:47:05

Thank you so much. I honestly have been waiting for this all my life.

6:47:056:47:08

I'm very touched.

6:47:086:47:10

Right, then. I'm going to go and write this story. So, three things.

6:47:106:47:13

Passion.

6:47:136:47:15

I've already forgotten!

6:47:156:47:17

I'm only kidding, I've remembered them. Three top tips.

6:47:176:47:21

Passion, interest in the world around you and discipline.

6:47:216:47:24

There's my inspiration, watch me go.

6:47:246:47:25

Once upon a time there was a man with a red nose and a red chin

6:47:256:47:29

and only one shoe on.

6:47:296:47:30

And one day he was making a really scary face and the wind changed,

6:47:306:47:34

and he spent the rest of his life looking like Lindsey Russell.

6:47:346:47:37

HE LAUGHS

6:47:376:47:39

You're not going to show her this, are you?

6:47:396:47:41

I'm not impressed, Barney.

6:47:456:47:47

That'll teach you to eat my Jamie Oliver wrap!

6:47:476:47:49

-Your jokes aren't funny, stop them!

-Whatever, yeah?

6:47:496:47:51

Let's talk about Damian Dibben. He's an amazing man.

6:47:516:47:54

As you can see, he takes inspiration from those museum artefacts

6:47:546:47:57

that he sees and write stories.

6:47:576:47:58

If you feel like being inspired, send us your stories.

6:47:586:48:01

Also, Museums at Night, a special event that happens in museums

6:48:016:48:04

up and down the country and also galleries.

6:48:046:48:05

You can stay after hours and experience some pretty cool stuff,

6:48:056:48:08

or you can just watch it on your telly boxes.

6:48:086:48:10

17th of May at 7pm on BBC Two.

6:48:106:48:12

-Have you finished?

-No, I'm English.

6:48:126:48:15

-Carrying on!

-Agh!

6:48:156:48:16

Now it's time for you lot at home to get involved.

6:48:166:48:18

We hope you've got the items we told you about at the start of the show,

6:48:186:48:21

because it's time for our live make-a-lon!

6:48:216:48:23

WHOOPING AND CHEERING

6:48:236:48:25

We're going to show you how to make a mini hovercraft.

6:48:256:48:27

It's really simple and you only need four things to do it.

6:48:276:48:30

Let's start by showing those. You're going to need an old CD or DVD.

6:48:306:48:34

A sports cap from a bottle.

6:48:346:48:36

You also need a balloon and some sticky tack.

6:48:366:48:40

-Dead easy.

-It is.

6:48:406:48:42

It's so simple, in fact, we've got

6:48:426:48:43

-some really special faces helping us today. Haven't we, Radz?

-Yes.

6:48:436:48:46

Look at the hovercraft go. All the way, all the way, all the way!

6:48:466:48:49

Yes, it made it!

6:48:496:48:51

We've got our help in the form of a dream team

6:48:516:48:53

who are known as Joe, Alysia, Robin, Mohammed, Sam and Hadika.

6:48:536:48:57

-Are we up for making?

-ALL:

-Yeah!

6:48:576:48:58

Yes, they are. Lindsey.

6:48:586:49:00

We've got some famous faces in the CBBC office as well.

6:49:006:49:03

Shall we say hello to them? Chris and Shannon, hello.

6:49:036:49:05

Good to see you, thanks for joining us.

6:49:056:49:07

-And we've got Ayshah from Newsround. Hi!

-Hey, guys.

6:49:076:49:10

-Hello.

-Hello.

6:49:106:49:11

And we've got Patrick, Rebecca and Emma joining us on the videophone.

6:49:116:49:14

-Hi, how are you doing, guys?

-ALL:

-Hi!

6:49:146:49:16

They are in Northern Ireland and are wearing their silver Blue Peter

6:49:166:49:19

badges because they sent us something a while ago.

6:49:196:49:21

-They've nicknamed themselves the cul-de-sacees.

-We love it!

6:49:216:49:24

They designed this Blue Peter booklet.

6:49:246:49:26

It has all you need to know about Blue Peter,

6:49:266:49:28

all the information that they've learnt over the years.

6:49:286:49:30

It's got special events like the Olympics,

6:49:306:49:33

it's got a time when they met Helen, it's amazing.

6:49:336:49:35

Guys, tell us about this, what made you come up with the idea?

6:49:356:49:37

Well, in the book we put pictures...

6:49:376:49:40

Oh, no, you got three lines out and then your audio went.

6:49:426:49:45

GARBLED AUDIO

6:49:456:49:48

..we made friends with our neighbours and then we sent it off to you.

6:49:486:49:52

It's brilliant. You've all got together and designed

6:49:526:49:54

a fantastic booklet - that's why you're on the telly.

6:49:546:49:56

Thank you so much. It's time to get started.

6:49:566:49:58

-Bring it on, sister.

-It's super simple.

6:49:586:50:00

If you haven't got all the items you need,

6:50:006:50:02

fear not because this is all going to be on the website later,

6:50:026:50:05

bbc.co.uk/bluepeter.

6:50:056:50:06

But for now, we'll start to show you what to do.

6:50:066:50:09

-You need to get your sticky tack.

-I'm just starting with the steps.

6:50:096:50:13

Barney is my beautiful model for today.

6:50:136:50:15

You need to roll that into a kind of sausage shape.

6:50:156:50:18

It doesn't have to be too thin.

6:50:186:50:20

How are we getting on, Chris and Shannon?

6:50:206:50:23

I've gone for the old stretch. I stretched it first and then...

6:50:236:50:27

-I like that.

-Good technique, that.

6:50:276:50:29

-Chris is using his whole arm, which is nice.

-The whole desk!

6:50:296:50:32

Ayshah, how are you getting on in Newsround?

6:50:326:50:34

Not too bad, it's harder than you think.

6:50:346:50:36

-You have to put a bit of effort in.

-You do with the rolling bit.

6:50:366:50:39

But this is when it gets easier because you need to turn your sausage

6:50:396:50:43

into a circle shape and that will go around the end of the bottle top.

6:50:436:50:47

-Barney, you are doing really well.

-Thank you very much, Lindsey.

6:50:476:50:50

Make sure the bottle top is closed, that's really important,

6:50:506:50:53

because it's going to keep all the air in your hovercraft later.

6:50:536:50:56

-Good tip, Lindsey.

-And really press it down as well.

6:50:566:50:59

-OK.

-Go on, really press it.

6:50:596:51:00

How are you getting on over there in the corner?

6:51:006:51:02

Very well, we are racing ahead already. How are you getting on?

6:51:026:51:05

-Great.

-And how are you getting on?

-Awesome.

6:51:056:51:08

We are doing very, very well here,

6:51:086:51:10

but you can't have any air gaps, that's why I'm taking my time.

6:51:106:51:13

-Lindsey, back to you.

-Well done.

6:51:136:51:15

Next, you need to get your old CD or DVD

6:51:156:51:17

-and simply plonk the top into the middle.

-Technical term, plonking.

6:51:176:51:21

Push it quite hard.

6:51:216:51:24

You really want to get rid of any air gaps.

6:51:246:51:26

The most important part here is that the bottle top is shut,

6:51:266:51:29

that's really important.

6:51:296:51:30

-Shannon, how are you getting on? Chris?

-Really well.

6:51:306:51:33

-We think we are nearly there.

-I think Chris has got the giggles.

6:51:336:51:37

-Ayshah, how are you getting on?

-Not too bad.

6:51:376:51:40

I'm a bit worried about the air bubbles, but I'm hoping it's OK.

6:51:406:51:44

-Northern Ireland, yellow team, how's it going?

-Really good.

6:51:446:51:48

Look at those smiley faces.

6:51:486:51:49

Shows how simple it is, they're all getting involved today.

6:51:496:51:52

Next thing is a bit tricky. You may need somebody to help...

6:51:526:51:56

Barney. ..somebody to help you.

6:51:566:51:58

You need to put your balloon onto the top of the bottle top.

6:51:586:52:02

So, Barnes, blow away.

6:52:026:52:04

Get quite a lot of air in there. The more you get in...

6:52:046:52:07

How are you getting on, Shannon? Come on.

6:52:116:52:14

Oh, Shannon, you were so good in rehearsal. It's all gone wrong.

6:52:146:52:18

-Ayshah? Oh, you are doing very well.

-Look at the size of mine.

6:52:186:52:22

In Northern Ireland they are all helping each other out. Light-headed.

6:52:226:52:25

Oh, they are a step ahead. OK, let's catch up with Northern Ireland.

6:52:256:52:29

-You need to then put the balloon onto the top...

-I've broken it.

6:52:296:52:32

What Barney has done there is what you absolutely shouldn't do,

6:52:326:52:35

-which is break the balloon.

-I pulled it too hard.

6:52:356:52:38

We've got another one we did earlier. And that's pretty much it, isn't it?

6:52:386:52:41

-That's confidence for you.

-I was about to say how simple it was,

6:52:416:52:44

-but Barney's made it look difficult.

-I'm sorry.

-Well done.

6:52:446:52:47

And then you've got your mini hovercraft. How did you guys get on?

6:52:476:52:51

OK, we'll put it to the test now. We are going to lift off our caps.

6:52:516:52:55

Are we ready to let them go? On three, two, one. Let them go!

6:52:556:53:00

Let them go. That's pretty good. Give yourselves a round of applause.

6:53:006:53:04

Yeah!

6:53:046:53:06

Let's get a bit of help from our helpers in the studio.

6:53:066:53:08

-Chris and Shannon, let's see yours.

-Go, go, go!

6:53:086:53:12

-Well played.

-That's really good.

-Ayshah, how about you?

6:53:176:53:21

I'll try it now.

6:53:216:53:23

-Yes!

-Well done.

6:53:246:53:27

And what about our cul-de-sacees?

6:53:276:53:30

-Let's see you guys have a go. Patrick, have you done yours?

-Yes.

6:53:306:53:34

You've got to put your balloon on, or it's not going to work.

6:53:346:53:36

-It's been and gone.

-OK.

6:53:366:53:39

-Well done, everyone.

-We'll come back and see how you're getting on.

6:53:396:53:42

Remember, if you didn't have all the items or didn't make it live

6:53:426:53:45

with us, fear not because all the details will be on the website,

6:53:456:53:49

bbc.co.uk/bluepeter.

6:53:496:53:51

Or failing that, go to CBBC iPlayer later and check it out. Radzi.

6:53:516:53:55

How good was that? Can I have my helmet?

6:53:556:53:58

Now, you've seen Barney and I pass our hovercraft test,

6:53:586:54:01

now it's the business end because it's race time.

6:54:016:54:05

You can hear the engines, you can smell the fuel,

6:54:096:54:11

my heart is pounding, it is race day.

6:54:116:54:13

-How're you feeling.

-Before training I couldn't have been more nervous.

6:54:136:54:16

When I finally got in, I couldn't have loved it more.

6:54:166:54:18

We've had our training,

6:54:186:54:19

we passed our test, we've had our safety briefing.

6:54:196:54:21

The hovercrafts have been checked, they are definitely ready.

6:54:216:54:24

-We are definitely not.

-Barney?

-What?

-It's time to get in the zone.

6:54:246:54:29

They're kitted out and ready to go. Let's meet our racers.

6:54:436:54:47

In red, number 157, it's Radzi.

6:54:476:54:51

In blue, number 156, Mr Barney Harwood.

6:54:556:54:59

All right, boys, it's time to get in your vehicles.

6:55:056:55:08

Barney, it might help if you face the right way.

6:55:086:55:11

Let's do this!

6:55:136:55:14

The race will last for 10 minutes.

6:55:196:55:21

Whoever completes the most laps in this time wins.

6:55:216:55:24

And we're off.

6:55:246:55:26

It's a slow start for Radzi, and I take an early lead.

6:55:276:55:30

Just get your confidence, Radzi.

6:55:326:55:35

We both made it safely round corner one and before we know it,

6:55:356:55:39

lap one was over.

6:55:396:55:40

But on lap two, I'm still in the lead.

6:55:406:55:43

Anything can happen, Barney.

6:55:436:55:45

And it did, on lap three.

6:55:456:55:47

Barney Harwood has crashed.

6:55:506:55:52

Barney, if you can hear me, mate, I hope you are all right, buddy.

6:55:526:55:56

But thanks as well because I'm now in the lead.

6:55:566:55:59

My engine just died.

6:55:596:56:01

I didn't do anything.

6:56:026:56:04

Yeah, that's more like it, hold it, don't lose it.

6:56:046:56:07

Go, go, go!

6:56:106:56:12

Yeah! Yeah, yeah, yeah!

6:56:126:56:15

Whoo! We got away with it.

6:56:156:56:17

Keep on making those mistakes, Radzi, I'm not far behind.

6:56:176:56:22

Here we go, concentrate now, Radzi.

6:56:256:56:28

Uh-oh!

6:56:286:56:30

Oh, Radzi's down. Radzi's down.

6:56:306:56:34

I just took a wooden post out.

6:56:346:56:36

I do apologise.

6:56:366:56:38

I've lost track of the laps, I've had a couple of bumps,

6:56:386:56:41

but I know I'm ahead and it's on the last corner and the home straight.

6:56:416:56:45

Winner!

6:56:456:56:47

-Better luck next time, Barnes.

-Yeah, whatever!

6:56:476:56:50

That was fun.

6:56:506:56:51

That is hands down, the best thing I've ever done.

6:56:516:56:55

-How are you?

-I'm fine, I'm good.

6:56:556:56:57

It was a bit of a knock, it was a shock because

6:56:576:56:58

when someone is coming towards you sideways at speed

6:56:586:57:01

and you know they can't brake, everything happens in slow-mo.

6:57:016:57:04

I'm thinking he's going to hit me. And he did, he hit me on the arm.

6:57:046:57:07

But because it hit my body as well it shook the whole body.

6:57:076:57:10

-And it took the sticker off.

-The badge has gone down, everybody.

6:57:106:57:12

But it's worth fighting for.

6:57:126:57:14

When it comes down to it, we have to announce a winner.

6:57:156:57:18

Radzi, well worthy, mate, congratulations. What a great day.

6:57:186:57:21

Woo-hoo!

6:57:216:57:23

A well worthy winner, Radzi, congratulations. That was amazing.

6:57:256:57:29

That was so much fun. The best time I've ever had, do it.

6:57:296:57:32

It's time for some comments. At the beginning of the show

6:57:326:57:35

we asked you to let us know what transport you'd invent.

6:57:356:57:37

We had so many good answers.

6:57:376:57:39

The best is probably blueblacknimblekid, who said,

6:57:396:57:41

"I'd invent a lemonade car and it would be powered by lemonade."

6:57:416:57:44

We love that. Thank you for all your ideas.

6:57:446:57:46

There are so many ideas, go online to see the rest.

6:57:466:57:49

Let's tell you what's happening on next week's show.

6:57:496:57:51

Lindsey and I try our hand at horse carriage racing.

6:57:516:57:54

This is us training and we're going to be competing

6:57:546:57:57

at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on Saturday,

6:57:576:57:59

but you'll see it on Thursday.

6:57:596:58:01

And daredevil scientist Greg Foot is going to be

6:58:016:58:04

right here in the studio. He'll be making an actual comet.

6:58:046:58:07

The one you see in space, he's going to make it right here.

6:58:076:58:09

So make sure you're here. Get online in the meantime,

6:58:096:58:12

you've got everything that's Blue Peter, we'll see you next week.

6:58:126:58:15

-Big wave, people.

-Ta-ra!

-Bye-bye.

6:58:156:58:17

We're racing into action, as Barney and Radzi aim to take part in a thrilling hovercraft race. But will they have what it takes to earn their hovercraft pilot licenses before the big day? Plus, there's a live make-along showing you how to build your very own, miniature hovercraft. If you want to take part, make sure you have an old CD, a plastic bottle top, a balloon and some sticky putty at the ready!
