guests. Yes all 300 have turned up in their pyjamas and onesies to
help set a new word - world record in support of this year's Children
in Need. Go Pyjamas! Coming up today. With Diwali only days away,
we show you how to make your own amazing candles. And we surprise
another Go Pyjamas party. They're CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Hello
welcome to Blue Peter. We have got 300 viewers along today, to support
Children in Need, Go Pyjamas, we're going to try and set a world record.
We're going to Go Pyjamas on a gargantuan scale that. Means big.
And we're no stranger to world recordss. We had the mattress
Dominos. Then we had Spellbound, the winners of Britain's gotta
lepbts. And I was the highest human throw. And last year our hula hoop
challenge. Fingers crossed that is what we are hoping, but to do it we
need one of these. Very funny! We're going to need a ball. Because
you may have played the game over and under. You stand one behind the
other, pass the ball over your head and under your legs. We're hoping
to set a record for the longest single line of over and under. You
go over and then you go under. And that is why we have invited so many
friends today. I nearly mitt you in the face. Yes, we have been raising
money for Children in Need. And let's say hello to Isabel. You're
involved in a world record-break involved in a world record-break
attempt. How are you feel something Excited and nervous. That is the
perfect mixture. And Ore is joining in. I feel brilliant, but I have
picked my second best onesie today. It look like your best one. We love
it, don't we? There are some rules we have to stick to. Helen?
with lifrz from Guiness World Records, our official adjudicator.
You look fabulous, but where are the pyjamas. I can't wear them, I
have to wear my official suit. do we have to do to set the record.
It is a Guiness World Record for longest line and over and under. As
you demonstrated, you have to pass it over and under altern tevly
throughout the entire length. It has to start here and end with Dean.
The most important guideline is that the ball cannot be dropped.
Otherwise the attempt is disqualified. So if the ball gets
dropped, the attempt is digs qualified. Can we start again.
but the record is a new record and you need at least 250 people.
have got more than that. If we get to the end of the line we will have
the record. Yes if you follow the guidelines. Can you follow the
guidelines. Well the end of the line is Dean. If you drop the ball,
you have let everyone in the room down. How do you feel? Really
nervous. I BT you do now. It is like the goalkeeper when a penalty
is going to be taken. But we will support him, won't we? Yes best of
luck. From the end of the line to the start of the line, how do you
feel about being the first person to pass on the ball? Excited. It
isry day you do a world record. glad you're part of this, I'm
confident and about the first few passes. I'm glad to be here. Will
you present Newsround for us in that? Maybe not. Oh she should.
Shouldn't she? We will make her do it. Guid luck. Can I press the
button? Yes. Are we all ready? The official world record attempt...
Put your teeth in! The official attempt starts in three, two, one
go! The ball has gone to Leah. She is passing it through her legs. She
is delighted with that. It is moving to the tiger and then to the
girl behinds. It is moving on swithly. I'm feeling -- swiftly,
I'm feeling confident. We're approaching the first corner. I
think they're going to do it. It is so good so far. Well done. On to
James and Liam is next. He has skull and cross bones. It is a sign
of danger, but he is OK. It is hard to play this game in a onesie with
a sagy bottom! But I think we have got it sorted. We have gone down
about 20 people. A lot to go before we break the record. Now, Liz is
lovely but she won't let anything slip. She is keeping her eye on
them. If that ball gets dropped, we will have to start again. We're
trying to prove you can do anything in your pyjamas if you wants to
support the appeal for Children in Need. A lot of you have been in
touch to say you're getting involved. Jack sent us this
photograph of him at a local theme park. He is eight and you can see
the penguins there. He has got his onesie, his dressing gown and his
Blue Peter badge. Because he had his badge on, he got into the theme
park free. And James and Connie did a responsored bike ride in their
pyjamas and went around a park near where they live. Well done guys.
Next up now, Rebecca went out in Somerset in her pyjamas and did the
shopping. Well done Rebecca. They have been doing their bit. How is
it going? You can see Liz is following the ball. It has gone
well. But you can say everyone is nervous about dropping the ball. If
it is dropped, we have to start again. How did you feel, Beth?
amazing. Emily has her arm in a sling but it went well. Yes.
now it is around to the side and we're on the way to breaking the
record. Yes, but we're not there yet. There is still time if you
want to get behinds Children in Need. You have another week to hold
an event like Anya. She has organised a run to raise money for
Children in Need. Good luck with that. Luke sent us a presents. It
is some crocheted poppies. I have got mine on now. Now if you are
going to get involved, check out the web-site. Everything you need
It is going well. The boys are making it. Have we dropped the ball
yet? We're still going. Liz has her eyes on the action. As long as the
ball is not dropped, we should break the record. Dean is poised
and when 4 gets the ball we have done it. Poor Dean, he is looking
nervous. We are all feeling the pressure. We want this to be a
success. Look at our Go Pyjamas map and you will see there are extra
stickers, because you have been telling us what you have been doipg.
You may remember that I went to see Ella in Glasgow and I sup surprised
her at her pyjama event. Barn nee surprised a school in York. - barn
nee. Now here is what happened when Barney met a group of dancers in
London. Now we are trying to set a new world record and you can see
what is happening, because there will be a box in your screen. Now
time to see what happened when Barney went to surprise Vikki and
her friends in London. We have had a huge response to this year's
appeal and that proves you lot are pyjamas bonkers. Today's pigeon
ping -- pigeon is hiper and a whole load funkier. Follow me. Inside
this bilgdz in London is a dance group, who got together to raise
money for our appeal. So I'm going to pop in and say hello and make
sure their pyjamas meet the required regulations from Blue
Peter and by the way, they don't know I'm here and I have brought
some friends to meet them. Sit say hell to the dance group from the
states. Earlier this year they won America's best dance crew and are
now in London. Time to go pyjamas. Hi. Hello. How you doing? Nice to
meet you. Hi everyone. Hi. How you doing? I'm here to say thank you
for raising money for Children in Need by putting on your pyjamas and
I'm here to give you a bit of a treat. I have brought some friends
with me. They waiting for you in that next room. Everyone, follow me.
Come on in. Everyone say hello to the electro-lights. America's best
dance group. You can sit in the audience. Off you go. Look at their
Apology for the loss of subtitles for 44 seconds
# Oh Gangnam Style! Oh Gangnam # Love me all night long # I have
been every where looking for you babe # I taught them everything
they know. It has gone down well and now time for our pyjama group
I think it is fair to say these guys love dancing and if you
combine that with putting on pyjamas, you can raise money. But
you can do whatever you want. Get your pyjamas on, raise money and
make sure you tell us about it. You know, it has been so much fun,
surprising these people. Everyone's been getting 106 - involved and it
gets touch in touch. If you are still raising money, let us know
Everyone is getting involved, you can hear Liz shouting directions.
So far we're doing well. The ball has not been dropped. Everyone's
getting involved with Go Pyjamas and on that side of studio, Helen
is with some famous faces. The ball has not been dropped, but we almost
had moment. Jack you were confused as to where to send it? Yes.
you got through it. So don't worry. It was our fault. We snuck up
beliends you. I'm blaming him. is not me. Thank you for coming in,
you can be butter fingers so I pulled them back. That is why Jack
was confused. I can barely keep hold of a milky brew, never mind a
ball. Thrfrpblgts goes the ball. That was your moment. You did not
drop it. Are you relieved? Yes. What do you think of the appeal so
far. You look comfy in that. If you can pick an appeal to do in an
outfit it could be your pyjamas. Frpbgs I think - I think you should
wear it on air. She said it. Barney. Hang on has the ball got to Dean?
That is the very end of the line. Listen we have got a few things to
do, hiz has to make sure everything is all right. -- Liz. And here is
the real reason lie you're raising money. We're having a great time,
but I met a young boy called Kyle who showed me why the money is so
important. Because it helps him I am Kyle and I'll live with my mum,
dad and brother. I love playing wheelchair basketball and I love
playing Wilshere football. It went in! I am here to find out what
Kyle's life is like living with cerebral palsy and how the money
raised for children's and need is helping him pursue his passion of
playing football. - children in Need.
Colours like any other 11 year-old but unlike most children, he lives
with a condition that affects his everyday life.
What is it like living with cerebral palsy? It is kind of
challenging but I like a challenge so it is fun. The messages that are
being sent from your brain gets scrambled so it is difficult to
walk. What do you do on a daily basis to make that better? I do
physiotherapy in the morning and then I'd do physiotherapy at school.
What kind of things do you do? You're basically try to stretch the
muscle and loosen it, so I usually wake up and try to use my sticks. I
get stretched, and it makes me stand up straight. What are we
going to do later? We are going to be doing power football. It is a
sport that I can do. You need skill to do it. It is truly exhilarating.
You should show me what you've got. Playing sport helps Kyle deal with
his cerebral palsy so we're off to a training session with his mother.
What is he likely he is here? what is he like when he is here. He
is socialising, speaking with his friends, it is kind of an extended
family. Children in Need helps to fund this power chair football team.
It is a growing sport. Two teams of four people control it will chair
with a wheels and a large motor, allowing players to move across the
pitch at speed. The team was set up and is run by Sharon. What you see
when the children come down here? This really gives them the chance
to have a bit of fun. Absolutely. Many of them are isolated when they
are at home because they cannot just go out and play in the street,
so they get a chance to come and meet your friends and they can show
real skill. I cannot wait to play football with the team but before
wicket off, some more training. In a minute, we're going to do a bit
of football but we're just going around cones at the moment. Barney
is doing all right. He understands the game. The game is the early on.
Emily has picked me to be in her team. What you like about playing
this game? You can let your talent out and show people how good you
are and what durability is. It does not matter what you're ability is,
we are all the same. It is a chance to show off? And to show people
that you're not just disabled, you can do other things. It is time for
kick-off. Yes! In this game, everyone is working together and as
a result, we are winning. When Emily and Kyle come here to be
part of the team, it is an incredible football team. It is an
amazing sense of community inspired by this. This is why we want you to
Go Pyjamas because the money you have to raise help to fund projects
like this one. It means that these children get to play the sport they
love. Come on, let's Go Pyjamas! I, I am Tolly sat under one
Tchoutou Go Pyjamas with Blue Peter. -- I am Tulisa. We are cover-drive
and we are asking you to Go Pyjamas for children in Need. Some
celebrities are doing it and everyone is joining in. Even though
we are in a big studio, the heat in here is incredible because we are
all wearing pyjamas over our ordinary clothes. That is what
we're trying to do to break the record. The last person is stood
right here. Are you feeling? Just excited. It is overwhelming. Look
at the action replay if you catching the ball. It is amazing.
This is one of the moments where everyone punches the air. It is
over and under. And there you go, we have made it to the end without
anyone dropping it, so congratulations. You should be
really pleased with yourself. The thing is, we do not yet know if it
is an official world record. We're doing the sums and working out
whether we have adhered to the guidelines. Only if we have will
she give us the world record. Fingers crossed. You can take your
hood down, because he did not drop it. So it does not matter. Earlier
today, Bonnie got to grips with wax and wait to make some very special
candles. - wick. Those are home- candles. - wick. Those are home-
made candles and I'm going to show you how to make them. Because on
Tuesday, Britain's Sikhs, Hindus and Jains will decelerating to
winey. They decorate their homes with lights and candles. -
celebrating the Vanni. -- Diwani. Make peace candles. - I'm going to
show you how to make these candles. We're using top-quality wax crayons.
You need some heat proved cookie cutters, any shape. We're also
going to need one of these, a saucepan. With about an inch of
water in it, because that is going to be used to melt the wax. And the
ball goes on top. You may ruin this by putting wax into it, so make
sure your mother is happy you are using it. Wax crayons, break them
up, and put them in the bowl. If you want to, you can make a candle,
Ock one solid block of colour, or you can make different types, with
different colours to make different layers. So now, we're just going to
make a red one. Here is one already melting. Choose your cookie cutter.
I'm going to use a diamond one. And then take the Wick, which is the
most important part. There is a silver disc on the bottom of it,
which holds it in place. When the wax has melted, then tip it into
the middle of the cookie cutter. You can do different layers but I'm
going to make one block of colour, just like that. It will set quite
quickly. This is the first time I have done this. If you want to see
the ones that have been done earlier, we have won their that is
red and yellow. Or there is one here but his pink and yellow.
Choose what ever colour you like. Once it has set, all you need to do
is take your scissors and trim the Wick to about that size. That
should be OK. The last thing to do, you are unsure, get an adult to
help you. Never leave a candle unattended in a room when you are
not there because it is dangerous. And there you have it, a home-made
candle for Dr What - for days Valley. The great thing about these,
because they used to be wax crayons, look, you can still draw with them.
I made that. You can draw things much better than that! I am an
much better than that! I am an expert at bobble drawing. Well done,
congratulation on the candles. want to thank all of you who have
got behind this appeal. Loads of you have been in touch.
Maggie went to church in her pyjamas and raised �155.50. Thank
you to everyone who is getting involved. The money makes a huge
difference. There is still time to get involved so checkout the
website. This is the moment that we are nervous about. This is the
moment that we had been building up to throughout the entire programme.
Please come over here. Les from Guinness world records, you have
watched everybody, every pass, over and under. How did we do? There
actually was a lot at stake here. You were the first people in
history to attempt the record. There were very strict guidelines,
but did you follow them? I think we did. That is what you're here for.
I will tell you, the number of people you had in the line-up was...
304. You followed the guidelines and it is a brand new Guinness
world records. Liz, I want to thank you for
getting involved. But it is too loud! Congratulations. Dean, a
quick word, you have done so well. He is still holding the ball, that
is how excited he is. Congratulations, you did it all on
your own. You're a hero. I feel like a record breaker. That
deserves a round of applause. We have a record breaker. You guys,
today was the day that you were part of the brand new world record.
How does it feel? Great. Amazing. Thank you for coming along and
getting behind the appeal. Some very colourful pyjamas. Thank you
for joining us. Did you enjoy it? Yeah. Did you enjoy it? Yeah x mack
b and there is time to say thank you to her friends from CBBC.
Without them, the record would not have been broken. It is such an
amazing show. Here is what is happening next week.
John Whaite is coming in to show us how to bake some tasty treats.
And there is no end to the pitch and a way hand - but jammer mayhem
