amazing feeling. Direct from Zoey 101 and VicTORIus, American act

Hello. This is British Petroleum, you know. That you pressed the
button. We are on TV later tonight because we made way for a brand new
series of Leonardo. Wasn't it amazing? So good. We are joined by
one of its stars playing Machiavelli it is Akemnji
Ndifornyen. Good to see you. Have a seat. We loved it. It was good,
wasn't it? It was good. What can we expect from the rest of the series?
It gets really dark. Everyone that is watching get ready for some true
grit. There is also a bit of a love interest. There is. You develop a
crush on somebody? There is. I kind of... I have my affection set to a
lovely young lady called Angellica. Don't you start. Well done. We can
have a sneak peak of that episode now where you do start take a fancy
for a young lady. Amazing. Look at her. It's like she will dance with
anyone apart from me. Have you ever been in love, Lorenzo? It's torture.
No matter what I do for her, what I say, it's always Leo, Leo, she only
has eyes for Leo. What are you talking about, who? Very funny. I
was just messing with you. Do you mean Lisa? She doesn't like me. She
likes me. She doesn't "like" me. was joking around. I knew it was
you all along. Better luck next time. We can start about the acting
skills. You are dressed as Ba si l Brush and having a serious
conversation with Leonardo. Training! That looked like Barney
the dog. We can get one made. We are talking about how amazing the
series is. There are lots of things to do to get involved. Go to the
website and check out the new Leonardo game. It's a platform game
that you will get on the computer. It's at [email protected] Those
BMX bikes are made out of wood. Do you buzz about on them When we
weren't filming I was doing stunts. You say things like that on British
Petroleum we will make you do stunts. Is it as much fun to film?
Amazing. We are in Cape Town and among amazing actors, love to you
all. We have a real blast. It's amazing crew. It looks stunning
like a movie. Shot like a proper music -- movie. Amazing directors.
How many months are you out there for? Four months. We are in the
sunshine. When everyone is freezing in London we are enjoying the
sunshine, but working really hard! We want to know what you think of
the new series of Leonardo. Get in touch: [email protected] Tell us
what you like, what you don't like or what you would like to see more
of. If you get in touch now we will try and read your message out
before the end of the show. Throughout the year we have been
putting together a British Petroleum calendar using a
different fotic technique for each month. -- photographic technique
for each month. In this one I have fly. This hawk is happy to sit here.
This is an ideal photograph opportunity. When the guys are in
full flight they can fly thousands of feet in the air and travel at
fast speeds. It's difficult to photo graph them. This could be one
of the most difficult challenges I have faced yet. To get my picture I
will have to use a paraglider. It's like a parachute that flies like a
bird of prey. Once we are in the air, the hawk will take to the sky.
If I get myself in the air and if we get near enough, the photograph
will be stung. The man charged with getting me airborne and keeping me
safe is my pilot, Steve. The camera is set up. You have the paraglider
set out. We only have to take off. We have a lot of wind at the moment.
We need somewhere between 10mph- 20mph. It's over that at the moment.
We may have to wait. Too much wind that can cause problems for us?
That is right. If the wind is too strong we may go backwards and end
up over the forest or the trees. It seems that unless the wind drops,
my dream of photographing the hawk from the sky may not get off the
ground. How does a paraglider work? It glides. The sun is warming up
the ground out there and creating hot air rising. If we fly into that
hot air rising we can go up and rise with it. As we wait for the
wind to drop, it gives me plenty of time to get anxious about running
off a cliff. It's nice standing here looking down on the valleys
there. In a short amount of time I will be up there looking down from
higher. This is quite scary. It's not about taking a photo any more,
it's about surviving! The more I think about this, the more I'm
getting nervous. This is the bottom of the paraglider. The only thing
holding me in the sky are these things that are thinner than a shoe
lace. Why did I say yes to this? Suddenly, Steve and his team notice
that the wind has dropped to a level that will allow us to fly.
With very little notice it's time for me to get my gear on and take
to the sky. I'm so nervous. I've never done this before. I'm about
to throw myself off the edge of a cliff. So... Yeah, a little nervous.
I can't believe we are about to run towards the end. It's ridiculous.
Oh! Here we rfplt we are in the air. -- are. We are in the air. What an
amazing feeling. What is really strange is that it's just a chair,
isn't it? There is nothing else to it. A flying chair. It's everyone's
dream, isn't it, to be able to fly? Incredible. There is a lot of
firsts happening today. First time I've ever been in a paraglider. The
first time I have ever tried to take a picture of a hawk. Tes -- it
is the first time this hawk has flown towards anybody other than
his handler. We are more than prepared to give it a go and
hopefully we will get a nice shot. Mart sin about to fly off and
hopefully the hawk will follow him. If we get close enough I should be
able to get a fantastic picture. Harris hawks use the same rising
hot air that I'm using to save energy. They have amazing eyesight.
It's so good, that if he could read he would read a newspaper from a
quarter of a mile away, which is great for spotting prey at a
distance. Harris hawks are good predators they are sometimes used
at airports and sporting venues to help remove pigeons. Let's try and
get this snap. He's just out of range. Beautiful bird. A bit too
far away. After 20 minutes the wind has dropped and my window to get a
picture has closed. I hope I have managed to get a good picture. Felt
incredible to be up there. It's like superman. Superman but sat
down. It's a casual superman, if anything. When you throw yourself
over the edge it's like, "What am I doing." When you are up there it's
brilliant. I had an amazing time. These are my photos. It was such a
good fun thing to do. There are the pictures on the British Petroleum
calendar for the month of October. Some of you have been going to the
website. What an amazing experience. It was incredible. He flew like he
was a bird! Go to the website and download the calendar from there
and stick it on your wall. We want your comments for you to tell us
about what you think of Leonardo. Email us. You can if you want. Our
next guest has come all the way from the US of A. She's no stranger
to bright lights of the TV world and if you are one of the many who
love VicTORIus on Nickelodeon you will know what I mean. She is with
us now. Please welcome Victoria Justice to the studio. This is your
first time on the British Petroleum set we would like to award with you
a British Petroleum badge? I have been looking forward to this. Thank
you. Let's talk about how busy you are. Movies, TV series, music the
works. How do you fit it all in? don't know how I fit it all in.
Every day I wake up and feel so lucky and grateful. It's an amazing
journey. Have you always wanted to work in showbusiness? I think so. I
have been performing since I was little. I have been singing when I
was three. I had an uncle in a band. I was acting since I was young. I
have been around entertainment. has progressed from acting and
being in movies to singing. We heard a little bit of your song
earlier on. We will see a clip. It's a song I wrote too. You get to
# I got a feeling that I'm not the only one
# I want to show some skin... # APPLAUSE
He is going on and on about the car. Was it a Mustang? Too much boy
stuff. We can talk about the message boards. When people found
out you were being here they have sent us for questions. One here is,
"Today is my birthday. Me and my sister love you. Who is your idol?
My mum. We spend a lot of time together. I'm learning from her and
becoming a better person because of her. She travels around with you
are always together. It's great. Try the chips and gravy., "What was
your first acting role, I remember watching you in Zoey 101 ages ago
?" My first action was for Ovatine. Other drinks are available. I was
given Zoey 101 and VicTORIus. There is a new show airing this week on
Nickelodeon. Another one, "What is it like going somewhere and have
people scream and shout your name?" It doesn't always happen that way.
It depends where I go. I have been getting recognised a lot more, I
guess, it's incredible. I love being able to meet the fans. It's
my favourite part. I'm thankful for all of them. If it wasn't for them,
I wouldn't be here. What is next? have my first leading role in a
feature film, it's coming out this October, October 29th. A Hallowe'en
comedy called Fun Size. Check it out. It's a great young adult cast.
You will play a role for us later. Here on British Petroleum we hate
to see things go to waste. When we heard that a fancy showgarden was
up for grabs we sent the British Petroleum Gardiner to take it to a
Every year hundreds of the world's greatest gardens are showcased in
the Chelsea Flower Show in London. It draws some familiar faces.
Only a few of these stunning displays are awarded medals for
excellence, so competition is fierce!
But not all the gardens are for show, some find new homes as soon
as the exhibition is over. With that in mind, watch this space.
I have come to Rainbow's Hospice to help rebuild a garden which is set
to become a very important part of what this place does. This hospice
is where children who are very ill can come and get care and support
and chill out. The garden from Chelsea will be a new part of
somewhere these kids can kick back and enjoy the outdoors.
It's been packed up and driven 140 miles from London to Loughborough.
This team of gardeners have seven days to put it back together.
I am meeting Declan and Charlotte and their families who will be
amongst the first to experience the new outdoor space.
Are you looking forward to the garden being built? Yeah. Is it
your thing, you like gardens? to get some sun. We are going to
build this garden especially for the hospice, are you looking
forward to that being built? Yes. Do you like flowers? Yes. What
about gardening? Yes. You like gardening, that's what I like,
enthusiasm! Without further ado, it's time to
get cracking. First, we have to prepare the soil. They say many
hands make light work. What makes lighter work is a machine!
That is rock hard. It's tough work, so I am going to leave it to these
hard lads. Next job, we have to unload the
truck. These things look heavy. This is a bit of a supervision
moment. I don't want to get the shirt too dirty!
That's the end of my time for the moment. The boys have loads to get
on with. I wonder if they'll make it in time?
It's been a week. I am back at the hospice. Let's find out how they're
getting on with that garden. The gardeners have worked around
the clock in terrible weather to get this garden built. Now it's
time for Declan and Charlotte to give their verdict. Right,
Charlotte, I am going to start with you. Smiler! What do you think of
the garden? Do you like it, don't go shy on me now. Yeah. There's a
nice place to relax. Charlotte's sisters, what do you think? I like
them. You like the seats. What do you reckon? It looks really good.
You can find yourself out here and come out here to relax. Yeah.
do you think? They need to come and do mine, it looks lovely.
One month on and the garden is looking great in the sun.
There's a lot to inspire you in this garden. The lads worked really
hard on it and all in all, it's a special garden for a very special
place. The new Blue Peter Appeal is coming
soon. What will do you? You have sent a smile across the
world by decorating t-shirts. You have created cards to change lives.
You have helped to set up breakfast clubs throughout the UK.
And last year, you baked a difference for Children in Need.
How can you get involved in the Blue Peter Appeal this year? All
will be revealed soon. We have been talk being this, it's
going to be so much fun. Stay tuned. We are going to launch the appeal
in a few weeks. Stick with us to find out how you can get involved.
The excitement of the Olympics is just about dying down but it wasn't
just the athletes who were a big hit, the mascots - here he is
coming. Wenlock and Mandeville were a huge hit. Every great sporting
event needs a great mascot and last year we invited to you design a
mascot for the Commonwealth Games in 2014 in Glasgow. It's time to
reveal the winner. In 2014 Glasgow will be hosting the 20th
Commonwealth Games, which sees athletes from all over the
Commonwealth arriving in this beautiful city to compete in a
variety of events. So, I am in training, I am going to be the new
Mo Farah. I am going to win gold in long distance... Actually, can we
stop. I might stick to presenting. Situated on the banks of the river
Clyde Glasgow is Scotland's biggest city. In 2014 people from all over
the world will be coming here for this historic event.
However, Team GB won't be competing in the Commonwealth Games because
the four nations of the United Kingdom, that's England, Northern
Ireland, Wales and, of course, Scotland, they compete against each
other. The Commonwealth Games started in 1930 and were originally
called the British Empire Games. Every country in the Commonwealth
can take part, that includes New Zealand, Australia, India, Pakistan,
18 countries from Africa, in fact, there are 71 countries in total
that can take part. Back in November last year we gave
you the chance to play your part in the Commonwealth Games by designing
the official mascot. They don't have a mascot and so, they want you
to get in touch and design it for them. We had thousands of entries
from all over the country. But would you believe the winner
actually lives right here in Glasgow. At the moment she doesn't
know she's won, that's where I come She's called Beth and lives down
this street. At the moment she's got no idea she's won the
competition. I hope she's in! I love this sort of thing. The door's
open. They've left the door open for us. Come in.
Hiya, Beth. How are you doing? Good. What are you doing? Not much,
just... It's a bit of a shock, isn't it? I am sorry, how are you?
Good. Do you remember entering a competition in November to design
the mascot for the Commonwealth Games? Yeah. You entered, didn't
you? Yeah. What did you do? I drew a Thistle. The guys in charge have
decided you are the winner. Are you all right? Yeah. It's a bit of a
shock when people come barging through your door and tell you that.
Look, here he is. Wow! It's great, isn't it? Yeah.
The judges thought Beth's mascot was fun and really captured the
spirit of the Games. Thistles are the emblem of Scotland so Clyde
really does represent this fantastic country. He's got
obviously the Scottish flag as a t- shirt and yellow pants and red
shoes, what was the idea behind that? He has all the colours, you
had to put certain colours in and I was trying to think of really
Scottish names and I wasn't coming up with anything and then we
thought because of the River Clyde and then... Thank you so much for
getting involved and entering the competition. Yours is now the
mascot that's going to be seen by millions of people. Not only do you
get the mascot, which is officially your design, you also get the
competition winner's orange Blue Peter badge. Thank you.
Congratulations. How are you feeling? Happy! Good. Well done.
I haven't seen Beth since then but I think she's still standing in the
kitchen with her mouth wide open. It gives us great pleasure to
actually announce the 2014 mascot for the Commonwealth Games, Clyde!
I love love Clyde! Nice to see new the flesh. Brilliant. It's
fantastic. It's so like Beth's design. If we have a look at the
original, all the colours are right. Clyde, she's captured your
personality. Look at the dance. Are you looking forward to the Games?
Thank you very much for coming in. Let's hear it for Clyde! APPLAUSE.
This is what's really good about this show, when you get creative,
see what you can do. Last week we introduced you to Nick who made the
micro sculptures, a tiny Barney and myself there, absolutely brilliant.
Nick is not the only sculptor in our presence. We have had these
sculptures sent in by Joe from Hertfordshire. Look at those.
They're absolutely fantastic. I can't imagine how long you spent on
them but we're very pleased with them. We like them so much we are
going to put them on the set. If you tune into Blue Peter, you will
see them for weeks to come. Fantastic. Even badges on them,
amazing. Right, hretsz bring you back to Leonardo. We are We are

Earlier in the programme we asked you what you think of the new
series of Leonardo. Judge Justice, has some e-mails. Tkoeu. What's the
verdict? Well, the verdict is, this is from Jessica, she says today's
episode was so good. I was scared they would kill him. Best episode

Anisha. I would like to see a mention of the Mona Lisa from James.
