a challenge, but can we present the Hello, and welcome to this week's

:01:28.:01:32.

Blue Peter. It is a spooky one, coming from Alton Towers, one of

:01:32.:01:36.

the UK's largest theme parks. If the roller coasters do not scare

:01:36.:01:43.

you, don't worry. We are going to be going inside. We are expecting

:01:43.:01:47.

some spooky goings-on. It is supposed to be haunted. We are in

:01:47.:01:52.

:01:56.:02:00.

poem or picture, check the website because there are 200 attractions

:02:03.:02:08.

:02:08.:02:12.

Hallowe'en theme, lots of spooky things on CBBC at the moment,

:02:12.:02:15.

including the start of the new series of Young Dracula. I was

:02:15.:02:19.

given the chance to go behind the scenes to see what is going on. But

:02:19.:02:25.

while I was there, I got more involved than I imagined.

:02:25.:02:30.

Growing up is hard when you are Dracula, a teenager, Vampire and

:02:30.:02:34.

the chosen one. It is positively dangerous. There have been three

:02:34.:02:40.

series of Young Dracula, following the adventures of him, his sister,

:02:40.:02:47.

Ingrid, and their DAB, Count Dracula himself. -- their father.

:02:47.:02:53.

The Young Dracula story has got ever more eyrie and exciting.

:02:53.:02:58.

is evil, I can feel it. So, what is it like creating the world of

:02:58.:03:03.

Dracula? Well, I have been given an Access All Areas pass to find out.

:03:03.:03:06.

Even better, they have given me a part, playing the role of a

:03:06.:03:10.

reporter. It is right up my street and I have even brought my own

:03:10.:03:14.

camera. It takes over three months to form one series of Young Dracula,

:03:14.:03:19.

and 80 people work on making the series happen. I had this reporter

:03:19.:03:24.

costume to prepare for my role. What do reporters where? What am I

:03:24.:03:30.

going to wear? Something casual. Keeping it nice and young. Jeans,

:03:31.:03:36.

trainers, and I'll be back in a jiffy. There is a photographer from

:03:36.:03:43.

the local paper to cover the quiz. How do we get out of this one?

:03:43.:03:48.

have faith in you. Time for a quick snoop around the set before I

:03:48.:03:58.
:03:58.:03:58.

become a real reporter. Check this out. The kitchen! Powdered snake

:03:58.:04:03.

skin, lovely. Cockroaches, of course. Every kitchen as

:04:03.:04:10.

cockroaches. Oh, no! Cow snot. If he bakes you're Kate, do not eat it.

:04:11.:04:15.

With a few minutes to spare before my cameo, I grab a chat with the

:04:15.:04:19.

actors. What is the best thing about being part of the Dracula

:04:19.:04:26.

family? I love the fact that the count is equally a buffoon, as he

:04:26.:04:36.
:04:36.:04:39.

is serious. And I love him, and it Every time you get to use powers,

:04:39.:04:49.
:04:49.:04:54.

I think the best thing about being engraved is there all world which

:04:54.:04:59.

is completely different from real life. It is exactly what you want

:04:59.:05:04.

to do, come on set and be something completely different. The time has

:05:04.:05:09.

come to record my scene. I am actually nervous. I do not normally

:05:09.:05:13.

get nervous, but they have given me something to say, and I just want

:05:13.:05:18.

to get it down. The first take reveals an unexpected acting

:05:18.:05:23.

challenge. That is horrible! It is basically beetroot juice in a glass.

:05:23.:05:28.

We are pretending it is blood, but I need help because it is horrible.

:05:28.:05:31.

Just imagine it is something else, like cranberry juice, strawberry

:05:32.:05:37.

juice, anything you can think of. It is a slow process, where we film

:05:37.:05:41.

take after take and I pretend not to be sick on beetroot juice, again,

:05:41.:05:49.

and again. I am so glad that is over. Here is the final scene,

:05:49.:05:56.

featuring me, from the new series. Care for the taste? Thank you. It

:05:56.:06:05.

is very unusual. What is it? Pomegranate, cranberry, and

:06:05.:06:14.

liquorice. Liquorice? It is an acquired taste. Great fort detox.

:06:14.:06:21.

Very relaxing. So, what is going to happen with the photographer and

:06:21.:06:24.

the mysterious drink? If you want to find out, you will have to watch

:06:24.:06:32.

Young Dracula. So, does beetroot juice taste that bad? It tastes

:06:32.:06:36.

like old socks. Although, it is actually very good for you. One

:06:37.:06:41.

thing you should do is to watch the new series of Young Dracula at

:06:41.:06:44.

5:45pm on Monday. We have come to the attic of the castle, and it is

:06:44.:06:48.

fair to say they are definitely spooky goings-on here. Let's go

:06:48.:06:58.
:06:58.:06:59.

exploring. Barney, have a look in here. It looks really creepy. What

:06:59.:07:07.

was that? I don't know. It is spooky. They hairs on my neck are

:07:07.:07:14.

standing up. Will that happen whenever we say the word "spooky"?

:07:14.:07:17.

That is sound effects. It is the best way to create atmosphere in a

:07:17.:07:22.

film or a movie. A few weeks ago, we asked you to get in touch about

:07:22.:07:24.

the competition where you get the chance to write the soundtrack and

:07:24.:07:29.

sound effects for a Wallace and Gromit movie. This is your chance

:07:29.:07:32.

to get creative. Look at this, and then you can add the sound effects,

:07:32.:07:37.

the music, changed the atmosphere, create the mood however you want it

:07:37.:07:40.

to be. You can use anything thought to have a look around your house.

:07:40.:07:46.

You can rip up paper, which makes a great sound. You can use shoes, to

:07:46.:07:50.

make footsteps. If you want something Speedie, you could use a

:07:50.:07:56.

hairdryer. There is a great scene in the movie, where he splats

:07:56.:07:59.

against the wall. Get some vegetables and splat them in your

:07:59.:08:04.

hand. You can use all kinds of things from around the house. Not

:08:04.:08:09.

everything works! Stick to presenting! You have until December

:08:09.:08:12.

3rd to enter the competition. You can do it with a friend from school,

:08:12.:08:18.

or in a group of up to five. Good luck. We have a masterclass for you

:08:18.:08:28.
:08:28.:08:30.

now. Here is everything you need to A great soundtrack is a piece of

:08:30.:08:34.

music that makes the picture more than just a picture. It makes it an

:08:34.:08:43.

emotional experience. A very simple dark, low called, or notes, makes

:08:43.:08:52.

something sombre. I will show you. You immediately know you are in a

:08:52.:08:57.

different mood. When you hear a door, footsteps, or a car driving

:08:57.:09:05.

away, those sound effects have been created.

:09:05.:09:10.

We have snuck down into the castle because we are at Alton Towers for

:09:10.:09:17.

a spooky special Blue Peter. It is a mannequin. Come out of there, you

:09:17.:09:23.

are scaring me. Really creepy down there. Happy place! The Blue Peter

:09:23.:09:27.

appeal, that is happy. There is a piano. This has worked out well.

:09:27.:09:32.

This week, performed with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, to

:09:32.:09:36.

show you that it is easy to raise money for Children In Need by Going

:09:36.:09:41.

Pyjamas. You were with other people. Carol Kirkwood, who does the

:09:41.:09:46.

weather, she was there. You were all over Breakfast News, which

:09:46.:09:50.

prove you can do anything in your pyjamas. We thought it would be a

:09:50.:09:53.

good idea to take to a rollercoaster wearing our pyjamas.

:09:53.:10:00.

You thought it would be a good idea! He went green. Hallowe'en

:10:00.:10:07.

laugh. You are properly scaring me now. We are here to show you that

:10:07.:10:11.

you can be part of this appeal if you weigh your pyjamas and get

:10:11.:10:16.

sponsored. You can do anything you want in your pyjamas. We reckon we

:10:16.:10:20.

can present Blue Peter from a rollercoaster in our pyjamas.

:10:20.:10:25.

:10:26.:10:33.

equipment, so don't try this at home. Don't you get travel sick on

:10:33.:10:42.

these? Yes. I am already not enjoying myself. You know how I get

:10:42.:10:52.
:10:52.:10:54.

travel sick? Action! For this year's Blue Peter appeal, we are

:10:54.:10:57.

supporting Children In Need and we want you to get sponsored to do

:10:57.:11:01.

anything and everything in your pyjamas. You can do absolutely

:11:01.:11:06.

anything. You can play a game of football, do gymnastics. Whatever

:11:06.:11:13.

you do, do it in your pyjamas. can organise something in your

:11:13.:11:22.

school, your youth club, in your pyjamas. You could do a fun run, a

:11:23.:11:29.

sponsored silence, even a car-boot sale. Oh, my goodness!

:11:29.:11:35.

information is on the website. can even print out posters. It is

:11:35.:11:40.

all on the Blue Peter website. the all-important sponsorship forms,

:11:40.:11:44.

so you can send your money to Children In Need. Whatever you

:11:44.:11:50.

decide to do, Go Pyjamas. I think Barney is going to be sick. I have

:11:50.:11:56.

got that watery thing. He actually went green after that.

:11:56.:12:02.

You had to lie down, didn't you? did not like it, but my shots were

:12:02.:12:07.

the steadiest, fantastic camerawork. A gold star for you. If you let us

:12:07.:12:10.

know where you are having an event and when you are going to hold it,

:12:11.:12:16.

let us know because we might come and surprise you. We have been

:12:17.:12:19.

asking you to get in touch so that we can come along and surprise you,

:12:19.:12:22.

and that is what happened to one drama group in Glasgow when Helen

:12:22.:12:27.

went along. This church hall is about to Go

:12:27.:12:32.

Pyjamas. I am sneaking in there for everyone starts to arrive for the

:12:32.:12:35.

weekly drama and music class, and I have brought some extra pyjamas to

:12:35.:12:42.

help with my cunning plan. This week, everybody has decided to come

:12:42.:12:45.

in their pyjamas to support Children In Need. I thought I would

:12:45.:12:48.

turn up and surprise them. I brought some friends to turn it

:12:48.:12:54.

into a party. You are meant to be hiding! I have got to keep really

:12:54.:13:01.

still so that nobody knows I'm here. Last week, Ella e-mailed us to tell

:13:01.:13:05.

us about the Go Pyjamas event she was planning, so we sent her a

:13:05.:13:10.

message to read out to the group. Sorry we cannot join in, but we

:13:10.:13:18.

have sent you a pair of pyjamas to get you started. Have some fun and

:13:18.:13:28.
:13:28.:13:33.

Hello! How are you? If you want to have a pyjama party, scream. Hit it,

:13:33.:13:42.

boys! But I am not the only surprise. The beat boxer and the

:13:42.:13:45.

rapper are here to help the evening go with a broom and put them

:13:45.:13:50.

through their beat Box paces. And, of course, they're getting into the

:13:50.:14:00.
:14:00.:14:30.

You have worked hard. You have worked hard. Who wants to see these

:14:30.:14:37.

to work hard? They have got an exclusive Children In Need wrap

:14:37.:14:42.

that has not been performed anywhere. It is for you. Do you

:14:42.:14:52.
:14:52.:14:59.

Everybody who is with me right now, put your hands in the air. Started

:14:59.:15:02.

off talking about in the playground and ended up with Blue Peter coming

:15:02.:15:12.
:15:12.:15:39.

and meeting Helen, and having lots # Let's get crazy, let's get crazy.

:15:39.:15:43.

Absolutely spectacular. To be part of this appeal and support Children

:15:43.:15:53.
:15:53.:15:54.

In Need, put on your pyjamas, get sponsored and head out.

:15:54.:15:58.

Let's go crazy, let's go bananas. Don't look at me like that. You've

:15:58.:16:04.

got the dance moves! We've come outside. We said today's episode

:16:04.:16:09.

was spooky. Look at these spooky faces. Talk me through that Boylan

:16:09.:16:16.

your head. It is wax for Hallowe'en. We don't need to worry. We thought

:16:16.:16:22.

it was a real hole! Look at Callum. Some property it -- proper movie

:16:22.:16:27.

affects going on. We have Harry and scarlet, what have you been doing?

:16:27.:16:31.

We have just been on the Willy Wonka ride. Are you enjoying

:16:31.:16:37.

yourself? Es. Mum and dad are also getting involved. Let's talk about

:16:37.:16:43.

the Blue Peter Appeal. Getting to your pyjamas and raise money.

:16:43.:16:48.

over the country, we have had e- mails and we have added stickers to

:16:48.:16:53.

the mat. Dominic says I pray the drums in the junior section of the

:16:53.:16:57.

Macclesfield dance-band. -- play the drums. I have organised a

:16:57.:17:03.

performance for parents. Myers says we will wear pyjamas for a day at

:17:03.:17:07.

school. Claire says I'm planning a party for Twell friends from school

:17:07.:17:16.

at my house and there will be music and food. -- 12 friends. Day Hamish

:17:16.:17:22.

is going to do a sponsored climb in his pyjamas. Whatever it is you are

:17:22.:17:25.

doing for Children In Need in your pyjamas, get sponsored and let us

:17:25.:17:30.

know. Let's talk about Bonfire Night. If you are going to see

:17:30.:17:35.

fireworks, you probably wonder how a top display his but on,

:17:35.:17:39.

especially one set to music. Recently I went to Monaco with the

:17:39.:17:49.
:17:49.:17:51.

British team to see them competing What you see here is a lorry being

:17:51.:17:55.

escorted into the docks of Monaco by the police. A police escort is

:17:55.:17:59.

normally reserved for royalty, but there is no royalty in the lorry.

:18:00.:18:05.

It is full to the brim with fireworks. A multi- award-winning

:18:05.:18:09.

British fireworks team have transported six tonnes of

:18:09.:18:14.

explosives over 1,000 miles from the UK to Monaco, a tiny nation by

:18:14.:18:17.

the Mediterranean Sea. The team are about to unload the truck and set

:18:17.:18:22.

off a massive fireworks display in the harbour for an international

:18:22.:18:27.

competition. I'm here to see if they can win. The display was

:18:27.:18:30.

designed by Mark, who started his planning eight months ago in

:18:30.:18:37.

Britain. How do you go from boys' toys, gadgets, to a fireworks

:18:37.:18:43.

display? We start with the music. Some of it is not any good with

:18:43.:18:49.

fireworks. Then you have to put fireworks to that. How? Are it goes

:18:49.:18:53.

from the music software into the script in software. We might use

:18:53.:18:58.

quiet fireworks or loud fireworks. If it is a colourful piece, we use

:18:58.:19:02.

colourful fireworks. How do you know when it will fire? Is a

:19:02.:19:08.

controlled by computers? The main panels go into smaller computers.

:19:08.:19:11.

Those individual fireworks are linked to this machine. You press

:19:11.:19:16.

the button and it does the rest. I think we should have a display

:19:16.:19:22.

outside. A Yes. I'm pressing the button! I'm doing this for all of

:19:22.:19:28.

our viewers across the nation. for it. That is a little

:19:29.:19:33.

demonstration of what you can do. Imagine that 4,000 times bigger.

:19:33.:19:38.

Epic. That is exactly what has been happening in Monaco, where the

:19:38.:19:43.

harbour has already seen three huge fireworks displays from France,

:19:43.:19:46.

Austria and the Czech Republic, all competing to win this year's

:19:46.:19:52.

competition. Mark and his crew face a big task building his firework

:19:52.:19:56.

fish and, but help is on hand as Mark's fiance is also an expert

:19:56.:20:03.

when it comes to fireworks. Can you explain what you need to do? We've

:20:03.:20:10.

got to carry these tubes into position and get the pins in so

:20:10.:20:17.

they are safe. We've got 20 group, 21. Can I be a crew member? I would

:20:17.:20:21.

love to get involved. We've got loads of things you can do. I get

:20:21.:20:25.

down and dirty to shift these huge tubes used to launch specialised

:20:25.:20:32.

fireworks. Placing them is very physical and technical. Very

:20:32.:20:36.

helpfully, I've been given a map of where they go and that is the

:20:36.:20:41.

language of these boys speak. I am guessing they want the one and six

:20:41.:20:51.

go next to this six and the eight there. The five and their three...

:20:51.:20:55.

We been here for hours and there's more to do. They have to set up

:20:55.:20:59.

those tubes and fill them with over 4,000 fireworks. I've been trying

:20:59.:21:04.

to help, but I've been getting in the way. I'm going to come back in

:21:04.:21:12.

the morning and see what they've Overnight the crew have made great

:21:12.:21:15.

progress laying at the launching tubes and loading fireworks into

:21:15.:21:21.

them along the harbour. Mark, Han and the team still have plenty of

:21:21.:21:26.

work to do, wiring every firework up to the computer. This doesn't

:21:26.:21:29.

look like the kind of phi work you would get on Bonfire Night when

:21:29.:21:34.

your dad is doing a display of the back garden. -- a firework. These

:21:34.:21:39.

are category four fireworks, professional work only. These boxes

:21:39.:21:44.

tell the fireworks when to go on. Yes. Would you trust me to do it? I

:21:44.:21:51.

would love to. Put that into 29. It doesn't matter which way round they

:21:51.:21:56.

go. It must be connected otherwise it won't fire. Definitely connected.

:21:56.:22:04.

Can't wait for the display. Number 29 his mind! The set-up has gone

:22:04.:22:07.

well and the next time I see this team, for display will be ready to

:22:07.:22:12.

go off with a bang. It has been just over two days, you have worked

:22:12.:22:16.

tirelessly to put this together. In 20 minutes, you will find out

:22:16.:22:21.

whether it has been worth it, how are you feeling? My stomach was in

:22:21.:22:26.

knots. I am so nervous. The conditions are perfect. We should

:22:26.:22:30.

see the fireworks dancing through the night sky in precise timing to

:22:30.:22:35.

the music. All we are waiting for is for the likes to go out and when

:22:35.:22:42.

that happens, we are ready. -- lights to go out. Good evening,

:22:42.:22:52.
:22:52.:23:02.

Monaco. The lights are out. Good 400 types of firework are exploding

:23:02.:23:10.

over Monaco in 50 different vibrant colours. You can probably hear the

:23:10.:23:15.

horns from the ships. All of Monaco celebrates the fireworks by honking

:23:15.:23:19.

their horns to let everyone know they are loving the display. It

:23:19.:23:23.

could not have happened at a better time. Thanks to careful planning

:23:24.:23:28.

and hard work, it is a cracking display, light and sound in

:23:28.:23:38.
:23:38.:23:47.

After firing almost six tonnes of fireworks, this massive display is

:23:47.:23:57.
:23:57.:24:11.

This perfect ending to a fantastic firework display it is about to

:24:12.:24:18.

take an unexpected turn. For the worse. While we were captivated by

:24:18.:24:23.

the fireworks, Mother Nature put on a show of her own, a lightning

:24:23.:24:29.

storm which has taken everyone by surprise. If you are going to

:24:29.:24:33.

finish the show in style, this is how to do it. It started to pour

:24:33.:24:37.

down. We have one of the biggest thunderstorms I've ever seen, what

:24:37.:24:41.

a brilliant show. Everyone took cover where they could as the storm

:24:41.:24:45.

tore through the harbour. But whatever the weather, the judges
