Coming up on today's live Blue Peter
Radzi and I take to the sea in the Tall Ships Race.
We will be giving you all the information you need to enter
the Tim Peake Mission Patch competition.
It's exciting, that one.
Quiet at the back, you two!
Mr Thoburn and his pupils are here from the new CBBC show, Our School.
Sorry, she made me do it!
-You so-o did!
-You started it!
Hi. You're watching Blue Peter.
Stay tuned to see some hairy people. Not just me and Lindsey
but I'm going behind-the-scenes on a brand-new drama called Our Zoo.
It's all about a zoo and where it started.
He is so cute! Aww!
We will also...
There he is, waving very quickly,
we'll be joined by Radzi, Tim and Naomi.
They are on the brand-new set of "Wild", which starts again
this Saturday - we can't wait.
-Also, follow me over here, Linds.
It's a live show, so we would like to hear from you, please.
We are joined by the cast of Our School, and that got us thinking.
If you could be taught by any CBBC star,
who would it be and what would they teach you?
Probably Ed Petrie.
He would be a geography teacher, he is All Over the Place!
-The crowd didn't like that.
Crowd, you know nothing!
Gareth Malone - he'd be a great drama teacher,
because he's all about The Big Performance.
Oh, no! Just because Radzi is away, you can't do all the bad jokes now!
If you can do better than Barney, head to the website
and we'll read as many comments as we can at the end of the show.
Earlier this month, Radzi and I were set a challenge
and it involved three days at sea,
two very novice sailors and one epic race.
-What you doing?
-Can I be in this shot?
Today we're in the South West of England, in Falmouth,
where Radzi and I are going on a real voyage - on this.
Has anyone actually seen Radzi? He's not...
Arr, me hearties! I'm here to find me pieces of eight!
Radzi, what are you doing?
We're going on a tall ship, not a pirate ship!
Arr! Give me a minute then, me lass!
Ahoy there! Ready to sail and reporting for duty!
No, no, Radzi, it's not that kind of ship either.
What we are doing is taking part in this year's Tall Ships Race.
So it's all hands on deck, then, Linds? All hands...
Are you going to be like this for the whole trip?
Do I have to share a room with him?
Share a room?! Linds, there are only cabins where we're going!
Don't worry, Linds, we're not sharing a cabin
but this will be our home for the next three days.
This Polish ship is the largest in the race
and it's called the Dar Mlodziezy, which means "The Gift Of Youth"
as it was built especially to train cadets.
We will be getting fully immersed in the world of sailing
by joining a cadet team to try and win that race
from Falmouth to the Isle of Wight.
First things first, we need to raise a very special flag.
-Shall we do it?
-Yes, let's do it!
There we go.
There it is. The Blue Peter Flag.
Unfortunately, it is not going to all be that easy.
We are going to get put through our paces over the next few days,
working around-the-clock to help keep this ship sailing.
That's right. This really is a serious business.
It's likely Radzi and I could get pretty seasick,
or if the weather turns bad, then there could be an emergency.
So, it won't be plain sailing!
What rocked her boat?!
Whilst other trainees begin to prepare the ship, we head down
into the engine room, as it's time to get the ship out to sea.
Can I press the button?
Yes, I show you which one.
-OK, that one.
Not that one. That one, you will make stopping.
-OK, not that one.
-Only this one.
-Just that one.
I can't believe I have just started the engine
of one of the largest tall ships in the world!
So we use this engine, but then once the race has started,
there is no engine, is that right?
Up there, the engine will be stopped.
-OK, and then, is that when we use the wind and the sails?
We need to run upstairs and go and help the crew there.
HE SPEAKS POLISH
'It's time to leave the docks as we take part
'in the Parade of Sails, where all of the ships
'and some onlookers sail out to the race starting point.'
Bye. See you later.
'As the trainees set to work preparing the sails,
'we get our first glimpse at the effort and team work involved.'
'The next few days aren't going to be easy.
'Luckily, they aren't throwing us in at the deep end just yet.
'We've got some time to take it all in before our duties begin later.'
The race has just started and the action's picked up.
Everyone's excited. I'm excited. There is so much noise.
There's a real buzz
and this is the last time that we will be standing here doing nothing.
In four hours, our first watch starts
and that means we are going to be working around-the-clock
to keep this boat moving.
It is all about this badge, representing this badge
and doing it proud.
-We will have to work together. Team work!
-Let's do it.
-Let's do it!
-You're really tall!
If you want to find out how Radzi and I got on
in the Tall Ships Race then make sure you're watching next week.
If you can't wait that long, there is an exclusive sneak peek
coming on the website soon, so head online and check that out.
-Thank you, Lindsey.
Last week, we asked you to get involved with a competition
which gives you the chance to design the Mission Patch that
Tim Peake is going to wear in space
when he visits the International Space Station next year.
-I want to enter!
It's so cool. We only launched the competition last week
and have already had bags and bags of post in the Blue Peter office.
If you have applied, thank you very much.
If you haven't, what are you waiting for? Here's how.
Application form's the easiest way.
Go to the website and you can download it and print it off.
You need to have two bits of paper, one with your design on it
and the other one has your details.
It says write four lines to tell us what inspired your design.
A short paragraph about why you did it.
If you can't download it, two bits of A4 paper will do just as well
but it has to be separate - one with the design on it
and the other one with the details.
Make sure you make your design nice and bright.
You need to include your name, your age, your date of birth,
your address, your phone number,
your parent or a guardian's name.
-Make sure that's all on there.
-I love that, it's well clever.
Is there one for the address?
Send it to this address. Move through space!
Aw, mine's a still one!
26th September is the closing date. The time is 12 noon.
Make sure it's here before then.
The brighter the better. It can be any shape you like. Have some fun.
All the full terms and conditions are on the website,
so take a parent or a guardian there, get them to check it over,
and get creative. Good luck!
I like it when you are creative.
We are so proud of you when you are creative,
we display it in the studio. It's the Big Badge Wall.
Can you see your work? If you can, congratulations.
You are the best bunch of people for drawing and sending.
I want to show you something but it's a bit big.
-It's actually in France. Excuse me a second.
This has been designed by Josephine.
-It might be the biggest I've ever seen!
-Look at this!
It is a timeline of Blue Peter, going back to 1958,
when the show started, all the way through all the presenters,
with all the different pets, all stuck on to the top,
and it goes to the end where we are today and it says,
"The future..." cos no-one knows what will happen!
This is incredible. Thank you so much for sending that in.
Of course, everyone who has sent something in this week will
earn themselves one of these, the Blue Peter badges.
The next one you can earn after that is the silver badge.
That's something we award to someone who has sent in a piece of post
for a second time that is different to the first one.
It's an amazing badge.
Someone who's done that is Antonia. Check this out.
She has made a Blue Peter game.
You have all different players in the game.
We have been having a go this afternoon. Thank you.
There's the camera, the director, what are you playing with?
-There's different cards.
-I've spotted the camera.
-I've gone for that one.
-You've got the studio.
-You have earned yourself a silver badge.
-This is amazing.
-It will keep Barney and Radzi quiet.
Let's have a look at this next one. This is special.
Ella has designed a 3D/interactive bit of artwork.
-I love this.
-This is your challenge in Switzerland.
You can change Lindsey's eyes from being really tired,
after the challenge, to being cartoony.
My favourite bit is the Blue Peter badges,
you can actually change them like that.
It is brilliant. Ella designed this.
We think she is definitely worthy of a silver Blue Peter badge.
We thought we could send it to her or just invite her to the studio.
Let's get a massive round of applause for Ella!
-Hello. Hi. Thank you for coming.
-Welcome to the show.
Let's talk about the badge that you are wearing.
How did you get the first one?
I sent in a poem about Blue Peter badges.
-Simple as that?
Then you got in touch with this one. Talk us through this design?
Well, it's Lindsey and Radzi in Switzerland
when they're doing their Blue Peter Challenge.
You have Radzi's eyes spot on.
That means you've got your very own silver Blue Peter badge.
-A round of applause.
You are starting a collection of badges. You have two. What's next?
Probably the sport badge.
We like it. It's a great badge.
Sorry, can we stop the show?
I'm getting some breaking news in.
We've got to go to BBC Sport,
they have a breaking announcement about the Blue Peter sport badge.
Welcome to the BBC Sports Centre, I have some important breaking news.
Children have been applying in their thousands
for the must-have item of the summer, the 2014 Sport Badge.
One school that has gone wild with a whopping 230 sport badges
is Birkdale Primary School.
Ore Oduba, Sally Nugent, Sue Barker or Hazel Irvine weren't available
so we sent Barney Harwood to find out more.
I have come to a school in Southport to show you how you can get
inspired and get involved to earn your Blue Peter sport badge.
The Blue Peter sport badge rewards you for inspiring your friends
to get involved in a new sport.
Everyone here is having a go at lots of sports
they have never tried before.
I am used to firing questions, I'm not used to being fired at!
If you wanted to play golf, it's such a good sport
to just get out of the house and be active
and healthy instead of sitting on the couch and watching TV all day!
It inspires kids and gives a reward to doing something healthy.
That's what it's about. In the name of healthy competition,
the last one to the top smells like cabbage!
OK, can I get your attention, please?
Hands up if you think you have earned a Blue Peter sport badge?
Well, there's only one way to find out.
I'll count down from three
and you have to run in and hand in your application forms.
Ready? Three, two, one, go!
Still trying to keep a sporty theme in at the end there.
They all really want one!
Check the website for details on how to apply.
-Hello, sporty people.
-Have we finished our application forms?
Excellent. In my arms, please.
I can reveal after counting all the forms
and making sure everything is in order,
every single one of you has earned their Blue Peter sport badge.
Come and get them!
Well, that went down well!
Look, here it is, what all the fuss is about,
the Blue Peter sport badge 2014.
Get out there and inspire a friend to take part in a sport
that you love. You never know, one of these could be yours.
Thank you very much, Barney.
Now, our next story comes from seven-year-old Carmen
who's inspired her friend Rio to take up hurdles.
What inspired Carmen to try the sport?
A Commonwealth hurdles champion who also happens to be her dad, Andy.
Talk about running in the family!
Moving on, another great sport badge application came from Esa
who loves playing football, so much so
that she's become a football referee
and inspired her sister Anya to do the same.
She's taken up being an umpire in her favourite sport, netball.
Excellent work from both girls.
If you have not earned your 2014 sport badge yet, don't panic,
there is still time.
Check out the website for all the details on how to apply.
But you had better be quick.
You've only got until the end of this month to do so.
That is just about it from me at the BBC Sport Centre.
I am off for a kickabout. On the head!
Thank you very much, John.
Barney, what an amazing school you visited. 230 sport badges.
Incredible. If your school has done something similar, write to us
because we love hearing stories like that.
If they haven't, you should pester your teachers so that they do.
Thank you very much, Lindsey Russell.
And now for another inspirational story,
but this one tells the story of a zoo, Chester Zoo.
It's huge today and lots of visitors go there every year,
but originally in the 1930s, it started in someone's back garden.
They've made a drama about this called Our Zoo.
It's brand-new to BBC One and I got an access-all-areas pass
to meet the stars, not just the hairy ones.
I've come to the set of a brand-new BBC drama to meet some amazing people
and one particular VIP.
You don't know who he is, do you?
Wait a minute. VIP - very important primate? Surely not.
Is it you?
Our Zoo is a brand-new BBC One drama, which tells the amazing story
of the Mottershead family who made their very own zoo in Chester
way back in the 1930s.
It was the first British zoo to be built
without bars around the animals.
Today, the drama is filming on location in Great Budworth,
which has been transformed to look like Chester did 80 years ago.
I'm meeting one of the stars of the show - Honor.
She's playing the part of June Mottershead,
whose dad started the zoo in their back garden.
Honor, it's lovely to meet you.
Thank you for joining me on the bench of questions.
Tell me about June, the character you play - what's she like?
In real life, she's absolutely lovely.
It's amazing to think it really happened in real life.
She's on set today and so she's been watching.
What's it like for you acting with Mitch?
Um, it's really good fun. He's absolutely lovely.
When he sits on your shoulder, you an feel the softness on your face,
and, um, he's great to work with.
Sometimes he can be all over the place and hard to handle,
but mostly he's really good and will do what you tell him.
What is it?
That? That's a monkey... from Colombia.
You keep charge of Mitch. I'm going to go and look after Mojo
and I'll see you on set.
Say hello to Mojo and Emma.
So Mojo - he's a penguin.
Yes, that's right. Mojo is 56 days old.
She is a Humboldt penguin.
Now, as an animal trainer,
your job is fairly involved,
from Mojo being in an egg
to TV star.
So, what's the journey been like so far?
They take 42 days to incubate,
and after 42 days, it's very important that you listen
very carefully and you listen out for the chick shouting, basically.
That's called pipping.
But, unfortunately, the egg was
a little bit dry,
and we decided to take Mojo out for hand-raising.
I noticed by watching you earlier that Mojo likes to, um, well,
-poo a lot.
-You have to take care of that,
cos, obviously, you can't appear
on screen with that on your feet.
No, definitely. So Mojo tends to poo
-about every four minutes.
At the moment, Mojo is being fed four to five times a day,
so there's time when we're on set
that we have to make sure
Mojo's beak's nice and clean
and that there's nothing on her feet
that will make her be embarrassed.
I like getting involved. I'd love to be able to help you out.
-Is there something I can do?
-You can help with the cleaning.
So I'm...I'm poo wiper? Excellent!
Yes, and beautiful assistant.
See? Beautiful assistant/poo wiper.
So glad I came.
I want to build a zoo...
..but with no bars, no small cages, no walls.
'Just before Mojo's turn in front of the camera,
'I've got my all-important job to do.'
OK, here's the star of the show.
In you go there. Go on, Mojo.
-How's the backend doing, are we good on that?
-Oh, lucky for you.
-It's still nice and clean.
-Yeah, OK. That's fine by me.
Everybody performed at the right time.
The actors were perfect, Mojo was perfect.
Everyone's a pen-guinner.
Oh, awful! Back to me in the studio, shaking my own head.
I'm so sorry.
I don't know I am going to say it half of the time, it just comes out.
If you enjoyed seeing furry things, check out the website
cos there are some beautiful tiger cubs that have
been named after Radzi and myself, look at them.
Barney and Radzi, the tiger cubs. Go and check that out.
I actually want one.
Now, from Our Zoo to Our School.
It is a brand-new series that has started on CBBC
and it gives an access all areas pass to students that have
just started secondary school.
Of course, access all areas means cameras everywhere.
Hello there. I'm Mr Thoburn and I am a science teacher here.
Why did you just light that and put it out?
Go and sit down, take your goggles off,
you are no longer taking part in this.
I think I get, like, over excited sometimes.
-Do you want to be my special friend?
SHE SPEAKS BAD FRENCH
I want to be a singer, I want to be a dancer, I want to be an actor.
I wonder what happens. We can find out because they have taken time
out of their busy schedule to be here.
Let's give a round of applause
to Alex, Delight, and Mr Thoburn.
Welcome to the show. Mr Thoburn, you are the science teacher
-and also the narrator for the show.
How do you feel about hearing your voice everywhere you go?
'The presenter has asked the fantastic
'and good-looking teacher a question.
'But what will his response be?'
A little strange at first but I am used to it now
and I narrate my own life now.
It is all quite different to be in that environment with cameras
-all of a sudden in your face?
-Yes, it is strange to start with.
You do get used to it and you forget they're there after a while.
Alex, tell us how you find it as a pupil at the school.
At first, you are getting all the cameras in your face
and it puts you off a bit.
When you hear your voiceover you kind of think, that is
not really me.
But after a couple of weeks, you get used to it and it feels normal.
I suppose it is natural for a real talented performer
like Delight, who wants to be a singer when she is older.
-What do you think is going to happen?
-It is really...
It is like a really great experience and it's like all
the cameras are there and sometimes you forget they are there.
One of the things I said on TV was that I wanted to be a performer.
It is actually true because I really enjoy it a lot and I like music.
There is actually a school performance at the start in
that school and I have auditioned
for that and hopefully I will get in.
The very best of luck. We hope you do.
Of course, the ultimate stardom comes after school.
You have to get your schooling right first.
We put together a Blue Peter challenge
for you to see how much you have learnt in your first year.
Me and Mr Thoburn have been working on this,
-so are you up for the challenge?
In that case, guys, would you please step into Our School?
As you can see, you are in teams.
We have got the Our School Team and the Lindsey Russell Team.
You may think it is quite unfair because it is two versus one... Nice!
But of course, Lindsey is twice their age so it works out well.
You will be answering questions, five in total, on certain subjects.
-You get a point for each one right. Mr Thoburn, you're going first.
Alex and Delight, who painted this artistic masterpiece?
-Leonardo da Vinci.
-Is correct, well done.
Well done, that is one point for Our School.
Lindsey, who made this much celebrated piece of artwork?
-Oh, where did you get that from?!
-Who made it, Linds?
-I made that, that is my art teacher.
-Yes, you did make that.
-I made that in Year
-6! Well done, what a great piece of artwork.
That is one point to Lindsey.
-Maths next. Alex and Delight, what is 3/5 of 20?
-Is correct. Well done.
OK, Lindsey, what number do you get
if you multiply your age in this photo by three?
I did not know this was happening. This is the worst quiz.
We told Lindsey to go to the office to do some work she didn't
need to do and while she was doing that, we were rehearsing this.
So what is the answer, please, Linds?
-I bet my mum sent that to you.
-I don't know. Times it by three.
-You were 13 in that picture which makes it 39.
So, unlucky, no score for Lindsey there. Next question.
On the subject of drama, Alex and Delight,
who wrote the play Much Ado About Nothing?
Going to have to hurry you.
-This is cheating, guys, come on.
Dr Seuss is incorrect, the correct answer was Shakespeare.
-I said Shakespeare!
-I don't even want to know.
It is an amazing one, this. What production were you starring
in when this photo was taken?
-These are so...
-What production, please?
-These are so embarrassing.
It was not a very big role but it was called Daisy Pulls It Off.
It really was. The story of a 1920s girl at boarding school.
That is one for Lindsey. Well done.
Next question, please, sir.
Alex and Delight,
how many colours are there on an archery target?
-That's a great question.
-It is a great question.
-Quick, quick, quick.
-Is absolutely correct, well done.
OK, Lindsey, PE is your topic.
-Which sport did you captain in this team photo?
Shout out to the under-16 hockey team.
It was hockey, yes, well done, Lindsey, there's your score there.
It is three apiece, this is for the win.
Alex and Delight, which book does this quote come from?
"Please, sir, I want some more."
-Is correct, well done.
Lindsey, quickly, who said the following quote about you?
"She needs to keep a closer eye on her belongings as she often leaves
"a trail of musical instruments, files and clothing behind her.
"However, she assures me
"frequently that her organisational skills are in hand." Who said that?
I know who that was.
It was one of my favourite teachers, Miss Watt, who taught me drama.
-She sounds amazing. Was she your favourite teacher?
Good because she is right here. Miss Watt, can you come in, please?
-I thought you were joking!
-Of course not.
-What is this?
Miss Watt, tell us some stories about Lindsey, what was she like at school?
I met Lindsey when she was 11
and she was in Year 7 at St Helen's School
and I am here to represent all the drama teachers at St Helen's
School who loved teaching you.
The reason I wrote that report was
because I was her tutor in Year 9 and every morning
I used to walk into the classroom and trip over your saxophone.
-That sounds right.
-And your hockey stick.
And then I would trip over it again on the way
out of the classroom, for a whole year.
So that is why I felt justified in writing that report.
Thank you so much for coming and telling us about it.
We have got to move on. Let's get a round of applause for Miss Watt
and our cast from Our School.
Of course, one famous CBBC face that's missing today is the lovely
Radzi, who is on the set of Wild with Naomi and Tim.
Hey, guys, how's it going?
Tell us what is happening this Saturday, we are very excited.
Thank you very much for giving us Radzi back.
-Yes, we're back together!
-Tim, what is in your hand?
This is part of... A new part of Wild, it's our Wild Wall.
This will be full of all of your photos when you send them in.
I will add one to start things off, it is
a picture of somebody being good at snowboarding.
I have got that same coat!
If you want to get online
and take a Wild guess at what do you think that might be.
-If you want to go online, it is...
Take a wild guess.
And what is coming up on Saturday morning's show,
Tim and I go face-to-face with a pack of wolves, yes, we do.
Plus we have quite literally just done this.
We have just fed the tigers and we won't be doing it again
-until we are live this Saturday morning at nine o'clock.
While we are on the subject of feeding wild animals...
-You do not want to miss it.
-Saturday, 9am. Bye-bye.
Thank you, Radz. See you next week. Amazing.
Don't forget we have been asking you to
get in touch about your favourite teachers.
You can find out online how that is going.
Let's find out what is happening on next week's show.
Do you remember this?
It happened a long time ago. Radzi got gunged for Children In Need.
We will be doing that six times over with 60 people in the studio,
trying to break a world record for the most people gunged in one
place at one time.
We also meet some weird and wonderful chocolate to
celebrate 50 years of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. Can not wait.
And find out how Radzi and I get on in the Tall Ships Race.
It is all coming up next week. Big wave, guys, see you then. Bye.
See you next week, bye.
We are joined live in studio by the stars of CBBC's new fly-on-the-wall series Our School to find out what life is like with cameras following your every move in the classroom! There's more exclusives when Barney goes behind the scenes on the BBC drama Our Zoo to meet the cast, crew and a few animals along the way. Also, Lindsey and Radzi reach new heights when they team up to race from Falmouth to Royal Greenwich in a Tall Ships Regatta, and there's an update on our Mission Patch competition.
