you with terrific tricks in the air. With the FA Cup this weekend, we

:00:16.:00:20.

will introduce you to a green football team who already topped the

:00:20.:00:21.

tables when it comes the environment.

:00:21.:00:28.

And we have a group in the studio making their sunglasses and

:00:28.:00:38.
:00:38.:00:56.

performing just for you. Hello! You're watching Blue Peter.

:00:56.:01:02.

That is Helen. Welcome. We are live. Before we talk about the exciting

:01:02.:01:06.

stuff on today, let's talk about the massive response post from you to

:01:06.:01:10.

us. We told you last week about how to mash up your faces using your

:01:10.:01:18.

phones, and you haven't disappointed us. Look at Isabella's top half and

:01:18.:01:24.

her dad's chin. She knows what she will look like in about 40 years.

:01:24.:01:29.

Anthony and France wasn't as the picture of their efforts. I did not

:01:29.:01:32.

use a smartphone. You don't need a phone to do this. They drew on a

:01:32.:01:37.

piece of paper. If you did not watch last week, you will not know that

:01:37.:01:44.

Helen sprang as a prize on me. I have entered you in a trombone

:01:44.:01:48.

competition on 24th May. You have a few weeks to learn a new instrument!

:01:48.:01:57.

You have to learn to play. You have got to be kidding!

:01:57.:02:02.

It is true, I will be in a combo competition. My skills are not up to

:02:02.:02:08.

standard yet, but I will show you how far I have got next week. Are

:02:08.:02:13.

your lips bruised? Helen doesn't know that there is a surprise for

:02:13.:02:18.

her at the end of today's show. Stay tuned to find out what that is.

:02:18.:02:23.

Loads of people have been in touch on the message boards. If you want

:02:23.:02:28.

in Courage Barney, join the message boards and leave him a supportive

:02:28.:02:33.

anecdote. Always keep a straight face. Funnily enough, that is what

:02:33.:02:38.

he always says to me. Another viewer says, don't be nervous, think of it

:02:38.:02:47.

as a really cool gadget. And there is a blooper on the website. It was

:02:47.:02:50.

my first lesson. Talking of surprises, why don't you get in

:02:50.:02:57.

touch today? Tell us about things that have surprised you. And what

:02:57.:03:03.

about your most embarrassing surprise? Barney and I love a

:03:03.:03:07.

challenge. But the next one, we literally went to new heights. 1000

:03:07.:03:12.

feet in the air, to be exact, but we were not in the aeroplanes. We were

:03:12.:03:17.

on top of them! For years, Blue Peter presenters

:03:17.:03:24.

have tried their hand at wing walking. And now, it is our turn.

:03:24.:03:28.

give us a taste for flying, we are having a warmup flight, but this is

:03:29.:03:32.

just the start. Over the years, Blue Peter presenters have taken to the

:03:32.:03:38.

skies on the wings of a plane. Six years ago, they attempted one of the

:03:38.:03:41.

hardest wing walking challenges, a high altitude high-5, but they

:03:41.:03:45.

failed because it was too windy. the wing walking challenge has been

:03:45.:03:50.

passed to us, and we are going more extreme. We are working with two of

:03:50.:03:54.

the best formation display pilots in the business. Vic, founder of this

:03:54.:04:04.
:04:04.:04:13.

top British wing walking team. Martin, with more than 1200 hrs of

:04:13.:04:16.

flying between them, we are in safe hands. How did you start? Where did

:04:16.:04:19.

it come from? After the First World War, you had all these young guys

:04:19.:04:22.

who had learnt to fly and did not want to go back to their boring

:04:22.:04:24.

jobs. So a lot of them bought by planes and started giving rides.

:04:24.:04:27.

They turned up, and people would come running out, because no one had

:04:27.:04:30.

seen an aeroplane. After they had visited a few times, people were not

:04:30.:04:32.

so interested. So one of the guys decided, we are going to really get

:04:32.:04:35.

their attention and said to the mechanic, you climb out on the wing,

:04:35.:04:38.

and I will fly down the high street. So that was what wing walking was

:04:38.:04:43.

about. We are going to attempt a manoeuvre called a mirror pattern

:04:43.:04:49.

pass. How difficult is that? We will take off. Martin will then dive down

:04:49.:04:54.

to get some speed up. I will follow him down. He will pull up and then

:04:54.:05:04.
:05:04.:05:06.

roll upside down. I am on the side then. I will steer in. I will slowly

:05:06.:05:10.

come up, so you can grab the bat. Martin will then roll out, and the

:05:10.:05:17.

job is done. Sounds simple, but doing it for real might be a bit

:05:17.:05:21.

harder. So we are getting some bat on past training from recessional

:05:21.:05:26.

wing walker Danielle. Here is the Batten I want you to pass to Barney.

:05:26.:05:31.

I want to test your reaction times. When I say pass, pass this to each

:05:31.:05:37.

other and you have to catch. Like a sprinter? Know, a gentle jog is all

:05:37.:05:47.
:05:47.:05:53.

that is needed. OK!I have a question. Pass! It will be a lot

:05:54.:06:02.

faster than this. Pass! Since you are going to be passing a baton to

:06:02.:06:07.

each other at very high speeds, I now want you to work on your hand

:06:07.:06:11.

eye coordination. If I grabbed the baton, I will only get one chance,

:06:11.:06:17.

so my hand-I called a nation has to be spot on. -- my hand icon award a

:06:17.:06:21.

nation. On the last bit of training needs us to approach things from a

:06:22.:06:29.

different angle. One of us has to be upside down, and that is me! I can

:06:30.:06:33.

dangle safety upside down here for up to five minutes. On the wing, I

:06:33.:06:38.

will have just 15 seconds. After that, there is a real danger that

:06:38.:06:43.

few will not get to the engine on the plane will stop. It is not the

:06:43.:06:48.

most normal thing on Earth to do, but we will do this at 110 miles an

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

hour. I can't wait!My vision has blurred! Easy.It is one thing

:06:59.:07:02.

passing a baton to Barney on the ground, but trying to 1000 feet in

:07:02.:07:06.

the air is trapped on top of a plane at 140 miles an hour dash that is a

:07:06.:07:16.
:07:16.:07:19.

different story. See you soon Fir Park two. -- 4-part two. Now, time

:07:19.:07:22.

to introduce some swagger. I can hear some giggling in the distance.

:07:22.:07:27.

Before we meet Stooshe, let's remind ourselves why would they are one of

:07:27.:07:32.

the most talked about girl groups in the country right now. Girl band

:07:32.:07:38.

Stooshe are made up of three singers, all London born and bred.

:07:38.:07:42.

Two of them were talent spotted while shopping for clothes. They

:07:42.:07:46.

were joined by another, and the trio were formed. Still in their early

:07:46.:07:50.

20s, their achievements have been high on the pop success scale. The

:07:50.:07:54.

girls have released four singles and received two award nominations. They

:07:54.:07:58.

have also been nominated for Best British single at the Brits and have

:07:58.:08:05.

even supported Jennifer Lopez. Not bad going, ladies. And they are

:08:05.:08:11.

here. Please welcome! Stooshewelcome to Blue Peter,

:08:11.:08:17.

ladies. Sounded like you were having a laugh in there. We were.Your

:08:17.:08:21.

single is out on Sunday and you will perform it for us later. What is it

:08:21.:08:26.

about? It is about when you are dating somebody and they have let

:08:26.:08:34.

their manners go. Not opening doors for you. Standards are slipping.

:08:34.:08:39.

Let's talk about your name. Where did it come from? It is a word from

:08:39.:08:43.

London which we all liked and have a lot of different meanings. So we

:08:43.:08:49.

added the word she on the end for female, girl Power. You are stylish

:08:49.:08:54.

ladies. We saw a picture of you that inspired us to do a Blue Peter

:08:54.:08:58.

make, so there you are, wearing funky sunglasses. We thought we

:08:58.:09:02.

would do that today. Here is your inspiration. Follow me, and we will

:09:02.:09:06.

show you how to make your very own designer sunglasses. All the details

:09:06.:09:15.

are on the loopy to website. We need to work out the occasion we will be

:09:15.:09:20.

wearing the sunglasses at. Because summer is coming up, I am thinking

:09:20.:09:24.

some of our festivals. If you are stuck for ideas, a great way to come

:09:24.:09:29.

up with some is to do your own mood board. Cut things out from magazines

:09:29.:09:37.

and stick them on the big board. Just do a mix and match. You can

:09:37.:09:41.

take a new pair of sunglasses or an old pair, it is up to you, but get

:09:41.:09:45.

permission if you are going to Nick your mum 's. Use some sandpaper to

:09:45.:09:53.

file down the frames. Be careful to file down the frames, not the

:09:53.:09:57.

lenses. Then you can pick up the bits you want to stick on. We have

:09:57.:10:02.

sweets, flowers, football stickers. I like the flowers. I like the

:10:02.:10:09.

sweets. I like the rainbows. I will ask you some questions while you are

:10:09.:10:13.

sticking and decorating. We have had hundreds of messages from the guys

:10:13.:10:18.

at home. One viewer says, what do you love best about being in a band

:10:18.:10:24.

together? Performing with each other is fun, because you bounce off each

:10:24.:10:29.

other and there is good chemistry on stage. You seem like a genuinely

:10:29.:10:36.

good friends. We are, and you have to be. Another viewer says, what has

:10:36.:10:44.

been your most embarrassing moment on stage? I was on stage and we were

:10:44.:10:53.

opening up for Jennifer Lopez. You know you have a microphone pack? My

:10:53.:10:58.

one fell off. I could not hear myself. So she came over as I was

:10:58.:11:04.

singing and lifted up my skirt and showed my knickers to everybody. She

:11:04.:11:11.

was trying to save me, which was nice, but... Another viewer says, or

:11:11.:11:17.

what advice would you give to someone who wants to be a singer?

:11:17.:11:25.

Practice, practice, practice. That is what you have got to do. And just

:11:25.:11:29.

know what kind of artist you want to be. The work ethic is the main

:11:29.:11:36.

thing. Don't worry about the blue, it will drive clear. Another viewer

:11:36.:11:41.

says, when you are about to perform, do you get nervous, and how do you

:11:41.:11:44.

calm your nerves? We always get nervous. If you don't, you don't

:11:44.:11:49.

care enough. We have a little handshake that comes us down. We

:11:49.:11:55.

can't show you, it is a secret. Thank you for your message board

:11:55.:12:05.
:12:05.:12:09.

questions. Let's look at what we have got so far. Amazing. All the

:12:09.:12:13.

details you need are on the Blue Peter website. While you are there,

:12:13.:12:17.

if you want to see Stooshe doing some more performances, send them

:12:17.:12:19.

some suggest of support and they will scroll across the bottom of the

:12:19.:12:26.

screen later. If you decide to have a go, send us a photograph and let

:12:26.:12:31.

us know how you get on. This weekend, Wigan play Man City in the

:12:31.:12:34.

FA Cup final at Wembley. Did you know that when they turn the

:12:34.:12:39.

floodlights on at Wendy, it uses the same amount of energy that it would

:12:39.:12:46.

to power up 80,000 TVs? That is a lot. But we went to meet one

:12:46.:12:53.

football team who are making their own energy.

:12:53.:12:57.

Welcome to a football club with a difference. This stadium in

:12:57.:13:02.

Gloucestershire is home to a team... What are you doing? Painting

:13:02.:13:08.

the football green. Why?Because you said we were here to learn how to

:13:08.:13:12.

make football more green. Not the colour green, I met environmentally

:13:12.:13:22.
:13:22.:13:23.

friendly green! O. OK.This is the home of Forest Green Rovers. I see

:13:23.:13:28.

what they did with the name. That is a coincidence. They have been called

:13:28.:13:32.

Forest Green for over a hundred years, but this could be the most

:13:32.:13:35.

environmentally friendly football club in the world. This is 100%

:13:36.:13:41.

recycled paper. That is their programme. And there is a game

:13:41.:13:48.

tonight. We need to get a move on. From floodlights to feeding the

:13:48.:13:53.

fans, football grounds use a lot of energy. But he, they have a plan to

:13:53.:13:58.

help. This club can produce its own energy. With solar panels on the

:13:58.:14:02.

roof of that stand, there is a wind turbine on the hill and on a day

:14:02.:14:06.

like today, they are both pretty efficient. Barney is standing on a

:14:06.:14:09.

pitch that even at the end of the season looks in good nick, and I

:14:09.:14:13.

think he is about to find out that it is even greener than it looks.

:14:13.:14:19.

Yes, because I have found the man responsible for the green grass,

:14:19.:14:22.

award-winning groundsman Stuart Ward. Let's talk about the pitch. It

:14:22.:14:28.

is not an ordinary pitch. What makes it an eco-pitch? We use organic

:14:28.:14:33.

products. Seaweed, waste from animals, waste from plants and

:14:33.:14:37.

calcium as well. We mix them together, depending what we want to

:14:37.:14:40.

do on the pitch throughout the season, and we make our own

:14:40.:14:43.

smoothies to feed the pitch. I love how the footballers have to stay

:14:43.:14:48.

healthy by eating and rigging well, and the pitch has to do the same.

:14:48.:14:54.

is an athlete in its own right. It is the 12th man. Jason, what are you

:14:54.:15:02.

cooking? We are making pizzas.How is the menu here different to a menu

:15:02.:15:06.

at most football clubs? We only serve vegetarian food. No burgers,

:15:06.:15:12.

no chicken? Burgers, but vegetarian burgers. I imagine there would be a

:15:12.:15:18.

riot if you said no pasties, no meat pies. How did the fans react?

:15:18.:15:22.

got used to eating vegetarian food. It is very nice. Meat production can

:15:22.:15:27.

be heavy on energy consumption, so serving locally sourced vegetarian

:15:27.:15:31.

food is another green step for Forest Green. What about the

:15:31.:15:35.

players? Has the new diet affected their performance? They have done

:15:35.:15:39.

well this year. They almost made the play-offs. But looks delicious.

:15:39.:15:49.
:15:49.:15:57.

Sprinkle a bit of rocket over it. This looks delicious. It is hot.

:15:57.:16:02.

have found a gadget, you have got to come and see this. Helen, have you

:16:02.:16:12.
:16:12.:16:14.

heard of the mobot? It is a robot which mows the grass. It does it

:16:14.:16:20.

using GPS. It goes on its merry way. It is amazing. It is charged by

:16:20.:16:24.

electric which is generated by solar panels on the roof. It is genius,

:16:24.:16:29.

and, if it gets into trouble, it sends the groundsman a text message.

:16:29.:16:35.

I want one. Now, we all expect foot all is to arrive in style, and it is

:16:35.:16:40.

no different here - it is just a different kind of style. All the

:16:40.:16:46.

cars are electric, so once they are parked up, you just plug them in. It

:16:46.:16:51.

is just the type of great green idea we like on Blue Peter. We love it

:16:51.:16:54.

when you get in touch and show us how created you have been,

:16:54.:16:58.

especially when it is something to do with the environment. If you do

:16:58.:17:03.

that, we can award you one of these, a green Blue Peter badge. I have got

:17:03.:17:13.
:17:13.:17:20.

an idea. Come on. It is looking good. It is going well, not quite as

:17:20.:17:25.

amazing as we hoped, but it is the thought that counts. Time to take

:17:25.:17:29.

the stands for the game. I thought you said there was going to be no

:17:29.:17:39.
:17:39.:17:41.

Greens on this. Everything is green. We are funny. Anyway, thank

:17:41.:17:49.

you very much. Last week, we interest you -- introduced you to a

:17:49.:17:52.

new feature, showing you how to Grow your own herbs, cook them and eat

:17:53.:17:58.

them. Take a look at what Toby from Exeter has done. Look at the size of

:17:58.:18:04.

his herb garden. Let's have a look at our much smaller plant pots.

:18:04.:18:09.

Briony, you have some basil, which is starting to sprout. It is early

:18:09.:18:13.

days, it has only been in for a week. I have planted some spring

:18:14.:18:18.

onions, which are starting to come through. So, we have left these in

:18:18.:18:22.

the sunshine in the window in the office, we have watered them and

:18:22.:18:24.

kept them well protected. Fingers crossed they will grow into

:18:24.:18:29.

something that we can cook and eat. If you want to join us, head over to

:18:29.:18:38.

the blue people website -- to the Blue Peter website, come on. Earlier

:18:38.:18:42.

on, you saw us training to be wing-walker Cormack. Back to that

:18:42.:18:52.
:18:52.:18:54.

now. Suited and boosted, our time to wing-walk has come. First, we need

:18:55.:18:59.

to experience getting strapped to a wing and spun around in the sky. It

:18:59.:19:08.

is all part of the training. I am up first, while Barney watches from the

:19:08.:19:11.

ground in a minute, they will start performing the acrobatics, that's

:19:11.:19:17.

what Helen is going to have to do for us to pull off this mirror baton

:19:17.:19:24.

pass. He is now coming down, to get as much speed up as possible. Now,,

:19:24.:19:34.
:19:34.:19:35.

he comes back, to go into the loop. That is absolutely amazing! So,

:19:35.:19:45.

that's the move Helen has got to be able to do today. OK, my turn in the

:19:45.:19:49.

sky, and it is amazing. Even if it does make me look like a bulldog

:19:49.:19:59.
:19:59.:20:11.

invincible. But not for long. difficult is this? I would say it is

:20:11.:20:18.

up there at ten what should we focus on? First of all, you have got to be

:20:18.:20:21.

strong, to fight against the wind. Secondly, do not trot the button,

:20:22.:20:27.

hold on really tight. And number three, you have got to watch out for

:20:27.:20:37.
:20:37.:20:38.

flies, because getting flies in your teeth is not so glamorous. Let's not

:20:38.:20:45.

drop the button. Let's do it.With 140 miles an hour of wind in our

:20:45.:20:54.

faces, it is difficult to speak, it is too windy to even hear us talk.

:20:54.:21:04.
:21:04.:21:06.

My plane spins upside down, right above Barney. We increase our speed

:21:06.:21:12.

to try to catch up with Helen, but we just cannot get close enough.

:21:12.:21:20.

first attempt has failed. So, we fly around to try again. By now, my arms

:21:20.:21:25.

are burning, battling against the wind. I can see Helen right above

:21:25.:21:28.

me, but the gap between us is too big. There is nothing I can do to

:21:29.:21:34.

get closer. It is clear that something is wrong, so our pilots,

:21:34.:21:43.

Martin and Vic, decided to land. Why did it not work? It is not easy.

:21:43.:21:47.

Barney 's suit was playing up, causing a lot of drag, so I did not

:21:47.:21:51.

have the speed to catch up. So we are going to try to get Barney more

:21:52.:22:00.

streamlined, somehow. Are you sure it is all right? Absolutely fine,

:22:00.:22:06.

don't worry about it. Strapped and streamlined, we go for one last

:22:06.:22:16.
:22:16.:22:20.

flight to try to nail this. It is so windy, I cannot even open my eyes.

:22:20.:22:30.
:22:30.:22:31.

We are going for it... Almost... Almost... ! We were so close, but

:22:31.:22:38.

after a total of six attempts, our time is up. I have no idea how close

:22:38.:22:44.

we were. I was just holding it as steady as I could, until I felt as

:22:45.:22:51.

turn around again. It was so close. I am so annoyed! I am the least

:22:51.:22:54.

competitive person on the planet, but look at the slow motion, look at

:22:54.:22:58.

how close we got. It was so, so close, and that was our fifth

:22:58.:23:03.

attempt. It was just not going to happen it was so frustrating, but it

:23:03.:23:12.

was a good day, and thank you to everybody who helped as. Earlier

:23:12.:23:19.

on, we asked you to get in touch and let us know how you have been

:23:19.:23:24.

surprising your friends and family. Then said, my biggest surprise when

:23:24.:23:29.

when my mum came home with my baby brother. And this one says, my

brother turned off all the electricity, when we were watching a

:23:41.:23:45.

horror film and jumped out behind the sofa. I was really scared. That

where I was going and I crashed. We hope you are OK. Thank you very much

the first stages of the Royal Marine commando programme. On Tuesday,

:24:08.:24:12.

you're going to Exeter for your first assessment. That's the Royal

:24:12.:24:18.

Marine commando programme. How do you feel about that? I was expecting

:24:18.:24:24.

you were going to make me sing or something ridiculous. While Helen

:24:24.:24:29.

soaks that up, here is what is happening next week. In honour of

:24:29.:24:37.

the brand-new film Epic, we will be looking at some slimy slugs. And we

:24:37.:24:42.

access behind-the-scenes at this world record roller-coaster, with 14

said baby. # You used to open doors. # So if you really want to stay in

my head... # Why did you let it slip? # Bring it all back to me. #

:25:56.:26:06.
:26:06.:26:17.

Say it like you mean it. # Slip! # That's how it used to be, why did
