Keep your achievements coming in at... We want to know what your
achievements are. Right now it's time to go to blue Peter.
We have a young magician and a magical author. We also have some
wrestling. And Iggy is back with Callum. This is the big one. It's
rubbish, nothing's happening! It worked, well done, Barney.
We're just having a little play. Welcome to Blue Peter. Boy, we have
a smasher of a show. It's a proper smasher, isn't it? Have a look at
our guest, the author, magician and actor, Nick Mohammed is in the
studio. He's going to answer your questions. I'm going to keep talking
so they have two wave as long as possible! That's mean! Next to him,
Dean Leavy, the Young Magician of the Year, 2017. He's had enough!
Dean is going to be sticking around to show us some magic. Don't blame
you. I wish we could just wonder. Oh, dear. What else is coming up?
Behind-the-scenes of the London Marathon and showing you how they
turned London into a massive running track. Yeah, baby. He won't be here
for a couple of weeks but you can see his face on your TV screens,
wrestling coming up. We are going to be playing our favourite game, not
waving, it is called Spot Shelley. She is hidden somewhere on the show,
she could be small or big, the first person to see her, get in touch on
the website and you could win yourself a house in Italy. You got
to stop giving away those naughty prizes! You get a great shout out.
My next guest, Callum and his guide dog, Iggy. Come on in, guys. How you
doing? Callum, I'm going to come behind you and lead you over here to
the podium. It's on your right, so take a seat. There you are. We saw
her helping you out. How have you and Iggy Bean? You're going to give
her a treat. She got me here, she gives you -- she deserves a treat.
We have a clip of you arriving this morning which is so call for us to
see. Coming in from the rain. Across the media City Matt, very important.
What's amazing, she helped you into the lift. When we did the guide dog
puppy training, we showed her how to do that so it is awesome to see her
helping you do it now. She did it confidently, she knows this place
better than me. She knows her way around the studio, she said hello to
the cameraman. She has had her third birthday. Yes, a great day, loads of
new toys. What about your two, have you gained more independence?
Definitely, I have my girlfriend who lives about an hour and a half away
and it is two train journeys. She's been a massive clock, I wouldn't
have dared to do that with my cane. It's so nice to go out without
getting my friends to go to me, and getting a lift, I can go out and
about like a normal teenager. She is a superhero dog. What's next for
you? You could see me in the video is going to college, that is coming
to an end, the course, so it is University next so she has helped me
go around a view open days. That's the next thing, going to start
university. I feel like a proud mum! You didn't just come here for a chat
and four Iggy to have a nap, you are here because Iggy needs to have a
grooming session. How would she normally does that? If we can wake
up! Iggy, come on, you're on telly! She wouldn't normally have the
harness on, we will take it off. You check her eyes and her ears for
infection? Yes, we check her eyes and ears just for any cuts, anything
that isn't really normal. We have a quick check. Don't lie down. If you
can help us do that. Give us one of your paws. That is checking that
there are no stones or chewing gum. We will check the other three in a
minute. We have some brushes. This is a plastic one, there you are.
What do you do with that? A lock of hair on it. It's going to be all
over the studio. You go from back to front. It loosens up the other
hairs. She loves it, she's relaxing. Do you like it? I'm going to pass
you the other brush. When you have done her backwards, then you do
forwards. We will swap. You can help me out with this one, a lock of hair
in that one. That goes forwards. That goes down like that. She often
uses that as an excuse to fall asleep as well! Her tail is wagging!
You are coming back to us later on as well. In the meantime I'm going
to show you this, it was sent in by Jonathan, making his own wrestling
belt because he has been loving every minute of Radzi's wrestling
journey. Just for you, here is part two. I'm in Orlando, Florida, to
fulfil the dream of a lifetime and go to the biggest event in the
wrestling world, WrestleMania! Last week I met some serious superstars.
Blue Peter badge! I got my hands on a Championship title belt. This is
incredible. And even delivered some of your post. Good job, Max, very
good. Amazing. It's about to get better as I get to go to the main
event and I'm taking you with me! But first... With WrestleMania
around the corner, we are at access to meet some super fans. Wow! This
giant convention gives fans from around the world like myself the
chance to get together and shared the wrestling love. I describe it as
fun but sometimes it can be a bit weird, I think! It's very cool, very
different from watching at home. Where have you come from?
Nottingham! What do you think of this place? Amazing, so much to do.
No wonder the fans flock here because you can do things like this
that you couldn't do anywhere else. This place is so good. Blue Peter,
my name is triple H, no longer Radzi! You're always doing your
rubbish little jokes and no one laughs. That was fun! What a day it
has been. A day of meeting people, fans who love wrestling as much as I
do. Just when I think it couldn't get better, it will get better
because tomorrow we're going to WrestleMania! I couldn't be more
excited. You're going to see a very, very, very happy Radzi tomorrow. And
so, here it is, the day I've been dreaming of since I was ten years
old. But hang on, I've been so excited I haven't thought about how
to get there. Oh no, what am I going to do? Is not going to happen, there
are no taxes, it's too late. I can give you a lift to WrestleMania. WWE
superstar, Cesaro! Get in! I'm going to be driven there by the two time
Tag Team Champions, Cesaro. I dreaming? This is my first
WrestleMania. Your first one? Yes. That's amazing. I was in the free
show in a tag match. You are from Switzerland. Swiss people know how
to do yodelling. They do. I did a climbing challenge there and as part
of that fight yodel. -- I did some yodelling.
Thank you so much for the lift. Thank you. I've been a wrestling fan
for such a long time and this is the Olympic Games, this is the World Cup
final of wrestling. And we are at it and I'm here to share with you my
passion. Whoa! I'm not the only excited one. How are you feeling?
Scale of one to ten. 500. I like hair and she is legit. Whoa! How you
doing? They're ours 25,000 people making their way to this giant
stadium and the best thing is you are coming too. This is it, I've
waited so long for this, 20 years. And it's finally here. WrestleMania!
As soon as I set foot inside the atmosphere is beyond Electric. When
the action begins, it's off the charts! The sights and sounds, the
spectacle, this is beyond anything I ever imagined. Woo! Yeah! When the
boss and blue Peter badge holder Triple H shows up, the crowd goes
wild. And I can say I was there to witness history, when the wrestling
legend that is the Undertaker leaves the ring for the very last time.
What a way to end. I know that not everyone loves wrestling as much as
I do but I hope that by sharing this, you'd been able to glimpse
just why this sport means so much to me. It has truly been an experience
I will never forget. What a weekend it's been. We've seen superstars and
the greatest show on earth. I've never seen Radzi as happy. Who
am I? Whoo! A man called Dan Humphries make that film happen,
thank you so much on behalf of Radzi, he loves you so much. That's
the bottom line. Let's look at this picture from LR, it is Radzi wearing
a onesie -- a picture from Ella. We love all of these things. It isn't
Spot Shelley here. Have a look at this, sent in by David. Silver
badges are trending and so is Mission Friction. You love the zip
wire challenge we did last week. Baahhh! Ella has the sound of --
same sound effect on her picture. You have a silver badge too. Last
week we told you that Callum and Iggy were coming here and you guys
really wanted to send in some post, and so much so we've had to create
another the Badge Wall just for Iggy. How cool is that? It's
amazing. One by your right shoulder, we were looking at it earlier. You
love it. Sent in by Edward who says he has made a picture of Iggy for
her birthday using recycled materials so that Callum can feel
them. How cool is that? Thanks so much, Edward. You got a little
jacket. A guide dog harness. And you have the birthday cake. The birthday
cake. Edward, you're a legend and you have a silver badge. Speaking of
badges they can get you into 200 places across the UK for free.
Thanks for not letting me hang there. Go to the website for the
details. On the website there is even more Callum and Iggy bantz, you
have a lot of that! Thank you so much for coming in, Callum. Will you
see us again soon? Yeah, definitely. Time for some magic. Time for some
floating magic, by the power of my hands, the The Young Magicians and
the Thieves Almanac floating in front of your eyes. This is real
magic, everybody. OK, it's a guy with a fishing rod! It is Nick
Mohammed in the studio. Good to see you. They really good magic and
wouldn't do that in the book. Tell us about it. It is called The Young
Magicians and the Thieves Almanac, about four young magicians who are
incredible at magic even though they are young but they do things like
sleight of hand, senators and pickpocketing. They are shunned by
the Magic Circle and they ever help -- and they help Scotland Yard.
You're going to do a magic trick for us. I am, I have a deck of cards
here. Hopefully everyone at home can see them. They are mixed up. What's
more interesting about it is that on the back are lots of names, they are
the names of all of the pets that had ever been on blue Peter starting
with Petra, the first Blue Peter dog, going up to Iggy. His birthday
last week. Yes, 21. There have been 26 Blue Peter pets in total. You
done your research. Each of their names appears twice.
Can you name anyone? Say it out loud? Eight of diamonds. Can you
name any particular pet? Maybe not Iggy because that might be obvious.
I know you should not have favourites, but Barney is my
favourite pet we have ever had on the show. Barney the dog. I loved
him. He is like a little chocolate cream. There has been a to. OK,
Barney the dog. I am going to remove the two cards there will be with
Barney the dog written on the back of them. I will try to be as quick
as possible. Jim, Jack... There is one, there will be another one. We
do not want the parrot. OK, I will not go through the rest. Two cards
with Barney the dog. You have one final choice, Barney. Whichever one
you choose I will put the other one back in the deck. Are you sure? Yes.
You named any card. I did. You named one pet. Yes. You named the aid of
diamonds. It would be an amazing thing if the heat of diamonds was
written on here. On Barney the dog. Amazing. Very impressive. Our next
guest is equally impressive. Do you carry your trophy around all
the time? I first started magic when I was eight and I got a magic set
for Christmas and then I joined a young additions club which is the
youth initiative of the Magic circle. Great magicians from across
the country teaching as magic. You entered in 2015 and did not get
through to the final. How does it feel to be the champion? Amazing.
Incredible. I have been developing an act, practising moves, for
hundreds of hours. We are going to see that later. You are going to be
answering questions as well. London, the capital of the United
Kingdom, a city that never stops, except for these guys. This is the
London Marathon, one of the most famous marathons in the world, and
currently 39,000 people are running the 26 miles of the normally very
busy streets of London. London has 8 million inhabitants are trying to
claim their sets are this place is no mean feat. Shall we find out how
they do it? Organisers may have hours to transform London for the
marathon so it is a race against time and setting out the chorus
begins the day before a. It is 1137 on Saturday morning and the race
does not start until 9am tomorrow morning. There is one thing left to
do, start the clock. This is how long we have left. This massive city
is being turned into a 20 to 6.2 mile running track and the first
thing to get billed as the finish which is right next to... Buckingham
Palace. The man in charge of doing that is the site manager Andrew. How
big is the London Marathon? Huge. One of the biggest sporting events
of the calendar, one of the biggest marathons in the world. We work all
day until 1am in the morning to get ready. Andrew leads the team of 500
people to build everything needed at the finish. It is frantic. Because
that is not the only thing going on here. The marathon is transmitted to
almost 200 countries around the world. With the roads closed the TV
broadcasters move on. This to my left is called an OBE truck which
stands for outside broadcast and that is because BBC Sport have
arrived and we are going to get a special insight. How are you? What
are you up to? It is about knowing what could happen. We go near at 830
in the morning and we finish at PM. There are a lot of words to get
right. You have to know the stories you are looking out for, the
charities, the incredible runners running for amazing things and their
stories. If they cross the line and somebody rings into me in the studio
and they know a bit about them... We will see you on the finish line.
That finish line is coming along nicely but there is one thing
missing. I am going to get the chance to lay the actual finishing
tape which almost 40,000 people will be crossing. I cannot believe they
are trusting him to do this. Is this happening at the start as well? It
happens about 6am. Do we need someone to lay it then? We do. An
early start. Is that where I come in? Yes, the actual start line is
only built on the morning of the marathon. Radzi told me to be here
bright and early and I am and it is bringing back flashbacks. Last time
I was getting ready for my first marathon. This time I am just
helping out. These guys have hours before some of the world's top
marathon runners begin to arrive. It is amazing to think this road was
only shout about an hour ago and they are trying to bring it all
together as quickly as they can. The gantry is up and finished. It is
time for me to get on the floor. This is how you do it. You can sit
there. This is the start of the marathon. I am doing it, which is
worrying. We have a bit of a wonky issue which we are sorting out. You
cannot have a wonky start line, not on my watch. Less than an hour to go
under 2017 London Marathon is ready. We are even joined by the Royal
Family. Once the race has begun I want to meet up with Radzi the
finish line but the roads will be full of 40,000 runners. This second
they cross that line we have to run and get into a card to make sure we
are ahead of them on the road. Go, go, go! The film crew are just
behind me. I feel like I am doing the marathon. This one? Yes. OK.
Everyone is in. Go, go, go! As we raced through London the massive
scale of the marathon becomes clear, this is a huge operation. There will
be 1.25 million bottles of water around the course. We have just
arrived. The next job is to find Radzi. Here he is. You made it.
Yesterday I was at the finish line. Show me the way. So much goes into
making this incredible event happen but as we begin to see people cross
the finish line it is clear all the hard work has helped create a moment
they will never forget. I have absolutely loved being back here,
right in the centre of the London Marathon. We have seen what goes
into allowing 40,000 people to run a marathon. After all that the streets
are returned to normal by Sunday evening. This is a huge team effort
but I can tell you it is totally worth it. I loved the London
Marathon. He is the younger edition of the year.
That was unbelievable, incredible. How does he do it? That was magic.
All you tell us after the show? Maybe. I think we have a winner.
Where was she? On the big screen. Clarinet Lavender. Amazing, well
done, you have one yourself some lessons in presenting!
Next week we have a brand-new competition about dragons. We are
joined by Kimberly Wyatt to tell us about her new books. Thank you for
watching. Have a great weekend. Goodbye.
