The Radio 1 Teen Awards rocked the CBBC channel on Sunday and I was
backstage to meet the heroes. 2 million people found out how I got
on at the opening ceremony for the Rugby League World Cup. And the race
is on in the second part of our rally car Championship. It is fast
and it is happening today on Blue Peter.
Hello, how are you doing? It is jam-packed and there is no time to
waste and we are going to tell you how to get involved in Children in
Need. It is the Get Spotted campaign and it relies heavily on Palace We
want to know all about your talents. Go to the website and let us know
what weird and wonderful talents you have. Maybe you are good at jiving
awed juggling or talking gibberish. Get in touch and tell us what your
talents are. I have got a party piece and I will need your support.
You can touch your chin with your toe? That is no good. As well as
Barney being a multitalented man, he is also a birthday boy. Go over
there and get ready for your talent bit. You can get involved in Get
Spotted. You can get involved under a spotlight. Get your teachers to do
it at school and charge people to come and see it. We are hoping we
can inspire you. First up with a rap that he has written today, it is
Radzi. I'm number 37 in the Blue Peter team and what that means is
that I'm living my own dream. My whole life I've been doing it MY
WAY. I mean my mum's from scotland, my dad from ZimBABWE. A shout out if
she thinks I've missed her. Her name's Rufaro and I think she's the
worlds best sister. Can't forget Loubie Lou and my best mate Paul
Osei Owusu. Now four ways to Get Spotted, what you going to do? One,
decorate a spot and it will go as a part of our spectacular spotty show.
Two, you can spot some wildlife It's incredible what you can see if
you look when the time's right. Three, now this one's fun but it
needs some shopping. You make spotty pizzas, that's a pizza with a spotty
topping. Four, do a performance in the spotlight. What, how? That means
something like I'm doing right now! Now one final time I plead indeed.
He was really nervous as well and he Get Spotted for Children in Need!
He was really nervous as well and he told me. I would sponsor him. Nice
skills. Stay tuned to see how we perform in the spotlight. We know
you are very talented, not just at artwork and getting involved, but
creating spots as well. Our big wall is packed full with some of your
designs. All the spots you send in we are going to turn into digital
images and they are going to be part of an incredible show happening
outside our studios in Salford. We are going to try our best and
decorate the whole studio. If you want to have a chance to have
yours included, make sure you get it in. If you want us to show you your
spots on this show, get it in by the 30th of November. This caught my
eye. Esme and Sophia have made this. I am a big fan of symmetry. I love
the design and the flowers. It is brilliant. I like this one. It is
from Daphne from Kingston upon Thames. And somebody who has gone
above and beyond is Evelyn. She has done an entire book of spots. Loads
and loads of different spots. How did you get all those ideas? 10 8 of
you have been in touch and a lot of those were e-mails. These are the
people that have been in touch. Amy sent in this picture. She was
inspired by bonfire night. Annabel has
inspired by bonfire night. Annabel worms. These are edible ones. They
look real. Thomas has got a lovely version of his wiggly worms. Rhianna
is eating has. Thank you to everybody who has got in touch. Also
look at how spotty our giant map is. Jersey is down there. Whether at
home raising money and getting involved in Children in Need,
remember to tell us where you are from so you can Get Spotted on our
map. This is the Rugby League World Cup. 14 teams are playing right now.
I am no rugby player. But I was involved in the opening ceremony
performing on the same pitch. I was quite nervous. The Rugby League
World Cup. 28 matches. 21 venues. 14 national teams. And one Barney
Harwood. Yes, me. I am going to help out that at the opening ceremony
right here at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. This year's ceremony,
watched by millions of people, will open the tournament and it is the
most ambitious opener so far. This is a stage manager working on the
ceremony. He has a lowdown on the job will be doing. We are here for a
reason, I am helping you with the opening ceremony. What does it
involve? It involves opening ceremony. What does it
banner that will go around the opening ceremony. What does it
in the opening ceremony and your job is to do all the queues. You will be
saying three, two, one, ago. It is my job to make sure the flags go to
the right place at the right time. Now I know what I have got to do I
am heading back to the Millennium Stadium where the ceremony will take
place to watch the final rehearsals. It is starting to dawn on me how
huge the opening ceremony is going to be. Look at the size of this
place. There will be 70,000 people in here. With 2000 performers and 12
months of preparation, the preparation is on for me to do my
job well. With less than 24 hours to go I hope I do not let everybody
down. It is the morning of the opening ceremony. These guys are
used to taking orders and they know what to do and when to do it, but
they have never had me as a leader. Once they have been briefed it is
time for them to practice holding and folding the flag correctly, so
that it opens the right way around. It is important you pull out so it
does not do this. It was time for me to practice my job. Three, two,
one... Beautiful. Stop. Walk this Way towards the corner in three
two, one. Stop on this corner. This is good fun. So we have
two, one. Stop on this corner. This out at the Rugby club, but can we do
it on the actual stadium's turbo. out at the Rugby club, but can we do
minutes to go. I am watching what they are doing. The timing is
crucial so that both flags moved at the same point and in time with the
music, something I have not practised, that need to get right
for the show. Next time this happens I will be in charge in front of
70,000 people in here. Why did I say yes to this? Before I know it, it is
showtime. The crowd loved the performances and everything is going
to plan. Then it is our turn. How must the players feel when they walk
out? To mark the very first game we bring on the flags for England and
Australia. Labour flag down in three, two, one. Down. Once we are
in position the music starts, which is my cue to reveal the flag.
Get ready to stop in three, two one. Stop. Going down. Down. I have
done it. What a feeling. Barney, thank you so much. Have a
lovely day. Amazing. What can I say? You can only imagine how amazing the
final will be on the 30th of November at Old Trafford. I am also
very excited about Lindsey who is about to play the saxophone. She has
not picked it up for three years. Take it away.
Well played! That was amazing. The pink Panther is one of the best
theme tunes ever. Come over here. That noise answers the next
question. I was going to ask how your driving is. It is OK. Radzi's
not brilliant. I am all about the speed! We can settle this. We know
who the speed! We can settle this. We know
Welcome to north Wales. People normally come here for the fresh sea
air, the long walks. But look at those views. But today. People are
going to get a very different view! This road plays host to one of the
stages of the Wales Rally GB. And today, we are going to raise it We
have already had one lesson in rallying from our tutor Ryan, but
you could not say we were natural Rally drivers. Radzi proved he has a
real need for speed, but that did mean he sometimes lost control of
the car. Power! There are so much to think about. Lindsey showed that she
likes to take things steady, but struggled a bit with the basics
like steering and changing gear Second dear. That is fourth gear.
But today, our focus is this, where there can be very little margin for
error. Second dear, now. Third gear. While Brian begins by showing us how
to drive the route, champion rally driver Alvin Evans explains why it
is so difficult. It is a very twisty, challenging road. You have a
big wall on one side and a rock face on the other, so there is no margin
for error. Careful! Don't go too quickly. You will get corners that
tighten up and leading to another corner immediately. It is all about
correct lines and taking the corners at the correct speed. Brake! It is
correct lines and taking the corners one of the challenging roads in
Rally GB. Brake, fourth gear. Well done. Now Lindsey and I are more
familiar with the course, it is time to race. We will each drive two
laps, and the person with the quickest time wins. I am up first.
Let's do this. Go! Brake! Power, power, power! That was
better, mate. But, Brian, that did not feel fast at all. Time to see
how Lindsey gets on. Go! Second dear. -- dear. Third gear, quickly.
Accelerate. I am concentrating so hard, I am forgetting to change
gear. Third gear! Fourth gear. Fifth gear. Keep going. Power, power,
power, go, go, go! Wicked. That is my first lap in the bag, and I am
leading Radzi by a whopping four microseconds. Pipe down, Lindsey.
Four microseconds? I am getting that time back now. That is a winning
time. The first one was time back now. That is a winning
this one is the real deal. Let's see if I can claw back that time. Go.
Second dear. Third gear. Fourth gear. Brake, down to third, quickly.
Brake! Get off the brakes now! That was all right, wasn't it? I gave
everything I had, and with a time of two minutes and 18 seconds, I have
racked up the fastest lap so far. Now I am in the lead. Fairplay, you
have upped your game, but I am not giving up without a fight. Go, go,
go. Third gear. Power, power. Fifth gear. Watch the kerb on the left.
Brake. Careful. Down to third. Brake! Go on. Well done. That felt
good, and brine only seemed slightly concerned by my driving, but was it
enough? How did we get on? With a time of two minutes 17.94, the
winner is Lindsey! I have done it. Not the biggest of margins, less
than a second, but a win is a win. She did you, mate. Sorry. That is
how it is done. You have She did you, mate. Sorry. That is
play the saxophone and you She did you, mate. Sorry. That is
Radzi rap, and now it is Barney s turn. Over to you.

What are you going to do to Get Spotted for Children In Need? I m
James Arthur, and I want you to Get Spotted. I played a doctor in Doctor
Who. What are you doing to Get Spotted for Children In Need?
Yes, there are loads of ways to get in touch for Children In Need. Head
to the Blue Peter website for more details or e-mail us. Did you both
watch CBBC on Sunday? Because it is the only thing to watch, and also
because of the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards. There were amazing
performances I Tinie Tempah and Rizzle Kicks, but behind the glamour
onstage, I met preteen heroes who are superstars in their own right.
In September, I went to the Radio 1 studios to meet Nick Grimshaw, where
we told you the nominations were open for the teen hero awards. You
after a team of people whittled them down, I was involved in taking the
final three. Wembley Arena, where the teen hero awards were presented
in front of an audience of 9000 teens, with thousands listening at
home . There were performances from James Arthur, Jessie J and Taylor
Swift. Sharing the stage with our young heroes. Our first teen hero is
a young girl called Chloe! Chloe has battled with her own mental health
conditions, but has put those aside to help others, too. How did it feel
when you found out you were this year's teen hero Dom one of them? I
was so grateful that people had thought about me that I could not
think about the excitement. But now I am here, I am like, oh, my gosh!
What will it feel like when you walk out there and get your award as the
teen hero? I am getting emotional. It will feel like everything I have
done in my life has been worth it. Well done. Enjoy the day! Thank you
so much. Let's hear it for Chloe! Our next teen hero unfortunately
can't be with us tonight, but he is an amazing kid. Alexander is 13 and
is committed to thinking for other people. As well as battling a
condition which means his bones are so mobile that they popped out of
place, he is also a full-time carer for his mother. Alexander could not
make it to the ceremony, but was lucky enough to have Steve Backshall
surprise him at his band practice. Is there someone called Alexander
here? Is that you? It is a privilege to meet you. The reason Alexander
here? Is that you? It is a privilege was awarded hero status is because
he works hard and goes above and beyond everyday to raise money
different causes and care for his mum. Let's meet him. Alexander
raises lots of money for charity, including the poppy of Peel. Last
year, he helped raise a whopping 22,000 pounds. You are hard at work,
and this is one of the reasons you are one of our Radio 1 teen heroes.
How does it feel? A bit shocked from when I was first told. Did you know
your mum had nominated you? I did not know. You are a genuine hero. We
have a couple of surprises for you. Do you know what this is? It is a
barn owl. Thank you for being one of our teen heroes. Why do you think
the Teen Awards are important, especially for Alexander? B it is
cool for all of us to celebrate people out there that may not get
recognised for what they do. These amazing teenagers have done amazing
things. It is a cool thing to put them in the spotlight. They get to
meet their idols act stage, and we get to meet them, which is equally
amazing. Jeremiah is just 14, but already knows too much about youth
violence. That has not stopped him campaigning, organising and making a
huge difference. Jeremiah has been awarded hero status for his
community work. When he was in year seven, he ran for young London
mayor. In this role, he was able to distribute ?75,000 to improve his
local area. Please give a very warm welcome to Jeremiah! How does it
feel to be today? It is overwhelming. It has been a lot of
fun going on the red carpet and overwhelming. It has been a lot of
when Tinie Tempah came to overwhelming. It has been a lot of
school? It was this a prize. I would have got a haircut and shaved! Is
that Jeremiah? It has been brilliant getting this award, but at the same
time, I have led to stay humble and not get too big headed. Make some
noise for Jeremiah! Why is the award important? Any encouragement we can
give to teenagers is a good idea. It will leave them with something for
life. You will never get this feeling again. The show is winding
down behind me, and what deserving teen heroes we found. I feel lucky
to have been part of the selection process, and what a pledge to do it,
at Wembley Arena, in front of thousands.
Well done, guys. At the start of the show, I asked you to send in your
weird and wonderful talents you have. Your comments have come in by
the truckload. Maroon Dottie Ferri says I love singing, and I don't
care when people tell me to stop. Amber in Wales says, I can do the
splits while eating pizza! Another person says I can eat sour food
without pulling a face! I hope that has given you inspiration to get
sponsored for children in need. Make sure you are here next Thursday
because we have got a treat for you. You will get the gunge one of
these lovely people. Katie, Radzi, Shannon, you know about Get Spotted.
Well, this is get splattered. You can vote for who you would like to
