It's not stopping! There you go. Keep your stories

:00:00.:00:00.

coming in. Right now we need to get ready for live Blue Peter. Here it

:00:00.:00:00.

is. I've come to check out the

:00:00.:00:14.

rehearsals for the World Record Special! There's limbo, peas and

:00:15.:00:20.

even a record-breaking balloon artist in the studio. It's a snake!

:00:21.:00:39.

CHEERING Welcome to live Blue Peter. Today we

:00:40.:00:49.

are very very excited. It's our World Record Special and in one

:00:50.:00:54.

minute will be attempting our first live World Record! I'm excited.

:00:55.:00:59.

Let's rewind the clock one year when we smashed two world records. First

:01:00.:01:03.

of all with the most number of straws in hair. This year we are

:01:04.:01:10.

going to go one better, we are going to try and smashed three Guinness

:01:11.:01:14.

World Records during today's live shows. Check out surely this week.

:01:15.:01:20.

She's got a little Guinness World Record judging coat on! She's an

:01:21.:01:24.

adjudicator this week. If you can spot her anywhere, let us know!

:01:25.:01:34.

Hello darlings. I'm going to be taking part in my last ever BP film

:01:35.:01:40.

later on. I'll sit in a car and drive it fast. Know! You're not

:01:41.:01:45.

going anywhere! Tell people what's going on. I've officially ruptured a

:01:46.:01:52.

tendon in my hand. It's getting better every day and today is all

:01:53.:01:57.

about World Record! From broken hands to break records, let's head

:01:58.:02:02.

this way and meet our official World Record adjudicator 's this week!

:02:03.:02:06.

APPLAUSE Welcome to Blue Peter. This

:02:07.:02:11.

beautiful book, Guinness World Records 2018 is out today. If we do

:02:12.:02:16.

our records today, we could be in next year's book! What are we going

:02:17.:02:21.

to be doing live today? The first Guinness World Record attempt is for

:02:22.:02:27.

the tallest stack of hats worn on the head at once. I think we can do

:02:28.:02:32.

this. Hats must be balanced only on the head with no support. The

:02:33.:02:36.

measurement will be taken from the bottom of the first hat to the top

:02:37.:02:40.

of the last tap and they must remain on the head for a minimum of 30

:02:41.:02:44.

seconds. If they are touched then the attempt will be deemed invalid.

:02:45.:02:54.

The record is 40 centimetres. That's quite high above my head. I'm going

:02:55.:02:58.

to need some help in the form of Match of the Day Kickabout's John!

:02:59.:03:06.

CHEERING Welcome to BP. You both are very

:03:07.:03:09.

excited to try and set a World Record. What have you been up to? We

:03:10.:03:17.

are about to announce the five players that are going to appear in

:03:18.:03:23.

the new series on CBBC. Very cool competitions. I'm heading to the

:03:24.:03:27.

Manchester city Academy and hopefully meeting the Agueros and

:03:28.:03:32.

Kompanys of the future! We've got to get back to World Record chat. Here

:03:33.:03:41.

we go. There's no time is there? Let's start. Camp us down. Three,

:03:42.:03:51.

two, one, go. Get that on there. This one is going to go bed. I feel

:03:52.:03:59.

good about this. Try and get the peaks All Over The Place. At

:04:00.:04:06.

different angles?! Yes. Getting quite heavy! Let's see how Barney

:04:07.:04:08.

and Radzi are getting on. Let's get a huge round of applause

:04:09.:04:19.

for a man so important his parents named him twice, Ryan Tracey! As you

:04:20.:04:24.

can see he is a balloon modelling champion. That was very fast. How

:04:25.:04:30.

much preparation had you done? A lots of preparation. I've been doing

:04:31.:04:33.

this for 4-mac three years and made over 100,000 balloons. I've got to

:04:34.:04:40.

be the strongest and fastest I've ever been. You one Britain's Got

:04:41.:04:43.

Talent and there was an adjudicator who was so mean to you. Vicki, how

:04:44.:04:54.

are you? And very well thank you. What has Ryan got to do today? He's

:04:55.:05:00.

got to attend the same record which is the most balloon modelling

:05:01.:05:04.

sculptures in one minute. The record he set an Britain's Got Talent was

:05:05.:05:08.

13 so he's going to try and break it today. It's a big ask. The only

:05:09.:05:13.

balloons that will count will be ones that are fully completed. If

:05:14.:05:18.

they aren't complete I will have to discount but one. We have pre-the

:05:19.:05:22.

designs. If it doesn't match the design I will also have to

:05:23.:05:26.

disqualify that balloon. She is very scary! Are you happy with the rules?

:05:27.:05:34.

Are you ready to go? Three, two, one, go. That was a fish. He told me

:05:35.:05:48.

earlier on the earlier animals were the harder ones. We'll give you a

:05:49.:05:55.

time count as soon as we've got one. If you're wondering why there are

:05:56.:05:59.

two balloons on the table, sometimes the balloons pop. If a bullying pot

:06:00.:06:03.

he gets a second chance. That will cost him time. That's half the time

:06:04.:06:14.

gone. 30 seconds to go. Good luck. You're doing so well. Hundreds of

:06:15.:06:21.

billions he's made over the years. 15 seconds. You've got time... This

:06:22.:06:34.

could be a World Record. Yes! Well played. Well, well played. Come on

:06:35.:06:41.

over. We are going to find out if this was official. What would it

:06:42.:06:45.

mean to you if you got a new World Record? This would mean the world to

:06:46.:06:49.

me. Someone told me it's not about how you fall down, it's how you

:06:50.:06:54.

stand up. Today is my chance for redemption. I just hope I get that

:06:55.:06:59.

record. I want my wife and kids to be proud of me. My five kids are

:07:00.:07:07.

watching today. Hello! Can you tell us how he's done? As you can see you

:07:08.:07:19.

have completed all 14. I can confirm that all of them are valid so that

:07:20.:07:22.

is a brand-new Guinness World Record! APPLAUSE

:07:23.:07:35.

Congratulations. How do you feel? I feel amazing. I'm lost for words.

:07:36.:07:44.

I've got a Blue Peter Badge! Hats how you break a World Record! Back

:07:45.:07:50.

to Lindsey. I'm scared to move or even breathe. Jack is measuring the

:07:51.:07:55.

hats. It's time to find out how we got on. It feels quite big. It is

:07:56.:08:05.

quite big. It's a real hat-trick! In order for this to be a new Guinness

:08:06.:08:09.

World Record it has to be a minimum of 40 centimetres tall. I can now

:08:10.:08:16.

confirm that this stack of hats measures a total of... 63

:08:17.:08:29.

centimetres. CHEERING Well done boys! That's the EU as

:08:30.:08:34.

well! We've set two world records in about a minute! I feel great! What a

:08:35.:08:41.

happy day. Stick around for later! All of this makes me think of

:08:42.:08:47.

philosophy. Someone once said that and Blue Peter challenges go

:08:48.:08:53.

together like two peas in a pod! Radzi, wake-up! I don't want to go

:08:54.:09:00.

to school today. Come on, we've got to go and harvest the peas! Why am I

:09:01.:09:08.

asleep in a field?! It's a good question and the answer lies with

:09:09.:09:14.

these. Peas! The UK loves peas. With farms growing more than 2 billion

:09:15.:09:18.

portions per year. Which is incredible. But what's even more

:09:19.:09:22.

incredible is the race against time it takes to harvest them. A race

:09:23.:09:28.

that starts very early in the morning. I'm here in Lincolnshire in

:09:29.:09:32.

one of the biggest pea harvesting farms in the UK to help explain to

:09:33.:09:38.

you how peas go from here to your dinner plate. To help do that is pea

:09:39.:09:45.

grower, farmer and pea Guru Stephen Francis. Most of the 9000 peas that

:09:46.:09:49.

the average person eats in Britain are frozen. To get them in the

:09:50.:09:54.

freezer tasting as good as possible, Stephen's farm don't mess around. We

:09:55.:09:59.

are here to harvest these peas. As soon as they start rolling and the

:10:00.:10:04.

pot brakes, those particular peas Busby frozen in 150 minutes to

:10:05.:10:10.

retain the flavour. How do they do that? I'm going to follow the pea

:10:11.:10:15.

every step of the way. Time starts now. First up, picking. The guys

:10:16.:10:24.

here could pick their 5000 acres by hand, or... They could use some

:10:25.:10:32.

serious technology. This harvester can pick more than 300 peas every

:10:33.:10:40.

single second! I'm getting a peas of the action! We are against the clock

:10:41.:10:44.

to get them to the factory in time. We've got to be as efficient as we

:10:45.:10:48.

possibly can. You're almost trying to make sure you're using the full

:10:49.:10:52.

width of the harvester every single time you go up and every single time

:10:53.:10:57.

you go down. This bad boy doesn't just pick the peas, it sucks them

:10:58.:11:04.

out of their pods giving us the little green balls we all know and

:11:05.:11:08.

love. I've genuinely enjoyed watching you drive this thing. Would

:11:09.:11:12.

be possible for me to sit in the driver 's seat? Not a problem. Your

:11:13.:11:22.

harvesting peas! Keep it straight. The reason I can't talk if this is

:11:23.:11:26.

like when you first learn to ride a bike. It takes all of your

:11:27.:11:32.

concentration. Here's what you've been harvesting! That is interactive

:11:33.:11:39.

harvesting! I've literally just harvested that and you're now seeing

:11:40.:11:45.

it on Blue Peter! Mum, I just harvested some peas. Now we are

:11:46.:11:48.

going to take this lot over to the factory. One hour gone and the peas'

:11:49.:12:00.

journey has only just begun. They have to be prepared in the biggest

:12:01.:12:05.

factory I've ever seen. Stewart can show me what happens here, after he

:12:06.:12:09.

ticks me in a wicked hairnet! This is where we try and get rid of any

:12:10.:12:14.

of the material that's come off the field and cleaned up before it goes

:12:15.:12:18.

into the branching and freezing operations. I take it that's inside?

:12:19.:12:24.

Can we go there now? You certainly can. Once cleaned the peas boiled so

:12:25.:12:31.

they are fresh for freezing. This happens as quickly as possible in a

:12:32.:12:35.

noisy part of the factory. What is going on here? The peas are being

:12:36.:12:42.

cleaned, blanched which seals in the vitamins and flavours. To freeze

:12:43.:12:52.

this many peas you need a serious freezer. I genuinely feel like I'm

:12:53.:13:00.

in the North Pole! This machine gives them the sort of treatment

:13:01.:13:06.

they would be proud of in the film Frozen!

:13:07.:13:29.

The work at this farm is really un-pea-lievable. This is a world

:13:30.:13:48.

record show, so I am not finished there. There is a pea world record

:13:49.:13:53.

set with the number of peas eating with chopsticks in one hour. That

:13:54.:14:00.

number is 7000. Off we go. I have had no practice for this,

:14:01.:14:05.

whatsoever. Although, that has never stopped me before. But it soon

:14:06.:14:12.

becomes clear, I am well off the record pace. So I am not a record

:14:13.:14:17.

holder, but I am not bothered, I have had such a good day. From the

:14:18.:14:30.

farm, to your plate at home, peasey. That wasn't an official world

:14:31.:14:33.

record, but there will be another one in the studio in precisely seven

:14:34.:14:41.

minutes. Let's take a look at the badge wall. We put it up to show how

:14:42.:14:47.

great you are. It is all about the BP sport badge. The applications

:14:48.:14:57.

closed at noon today. Over 5000 applied for the sport badge and

:14:58.:15:01.

inspired other people to try a brand-new sport in just four weeks.

:15:02.:15:07.

Amazing, good effort. Sarah and Katie did it. Sarah inspired Katie

:15:08.:15:13.

to take up wheelchair basketball. They said not only is it fun, it is

:15:14.:15:19.

good for your arm muscles. Congratulations to all of your

:15:20.:15:27.

people who have got one. They other two biggest smiles in the country.

:15:28.:15:32.

Oscar and Leonardo. Leonardo inspired Oscar to try judo. They

:15:33.:15:38.

look so happy because they have their sport bag. Boys, well done.

:15:39.:15:45.

Now it is time to announce the fan of the month for September. All

:15:46.:15:54.

right, Cockers. I will announce your fan of the month. Stick your hand

:15:55.:16:06.

into my lovely flan. It is not flan of the month, it is fan of the

:16:07.:16:12.

month. The fan of the month is in the flan of the month. Orange

:16:13.:16:20.

Summery seal. You have won a house in Spain. Not only are you an

:16:21.:16:24.

incredible fine, but you have compiled lots of good luck messages

:16:25.:16:31.

for Barney inside a card. Where is he going? He's going to go and find

:16:32.:16:36.

it, I think. There it is. Open it up. You have still got a week to get

:16:37.:16:45.

your messages in. Get your messages in for Barney. You have only got a

:16:46.:16:54.

week. The usual address. Who wants to see my final film on BP? I have

:16:55.:17:03.

been in a ballet, I have driven a car before, but I have never been in

:17:04.:17:12.

a car ballet. Have a look at this. Choreographed stunt driving, using

:17:13.:17:16.

incredible skill to perform synchronised routine and basically,

:17:17.:17:20.

make cars dance. It is a beautiful thing and what it needs is someone

:17:21.:17:26.

with courage, real charisma. So I am some with really cool hair. You can

:17:27.:17:30.

see me, I am not talking about myself, I am talking about a motor

:17:31.:17:37.

sporting legend. I am not the world's bus driver, but hopefully,

:17:38.:17:42.

tomorrow, I will be. For my final Blue Peter challenge I will be

:17:43.:17:46.

joining a display team to try to perform a stunned routine. It'll

:17:47.:17:50.

take precision, bravery and a cool head. It is happening tomorrow. In

:17:51.:17:57.

just 24 hours, I will be taking part in a choreographed car display. To

:17:58.:18:01.

do that, I need to learn the basics so I need an instructor and they

:18:02.:18:05.

need a car. Have you seen one anywhere? He will do. This is stunt

:18:06.:18:20.

driver coordinator, Paul Swift. He will give me a crash course. That is

:18:21.:18:25.

probably not the best phrase. Good to meet you. I am excited about you.

:18:26.:18:31.

I have got you, the car and all I need now is the keys. Not so fast,

:18:32.:18:37.

we need to spend some time give you some training, demonstrate a couple

:18:38.:18:41.

of manoeuvres, you can sit beside me, then we can swap over and see

:18:42.:18:46.

how we get on. That is probably best, can we go on two wheels as

:18:47.:18:50.

well? Show us what you've got. Let's go!

:18:51.:19:02.

That is ridiculous. This is so impressive. My hat flew off. That

:19:03.:19:20.

was really good. My go? This is where the laws of gravity are

:19:21.:19:26.

defied, the rules are broken. And I am genuinely, quite scared. OK, seat

:19:27.:19:32.

belts on. Safety first. The two basic things is driving backwards at

:19:33.:19:43.

speed and doing the J Turn. The J Turn is turning the car around in a

:19:44.:19:49.

matter of seconds. If I cannot do this, I can forget about doing the

:19:50.:19:54.

routine. Clutch, speed, straight in the wheel. In the first. That would

:19:55.:20:00.

have been great, first time round if I didn't stall it. On, off, clutch

:20:01.:20:08.

in, drive. More speed, of the clutch. Straight the wheel. You have

:20:09.:20:15.

got to get this right, because tomorrow, there is no second

:20:16.:20:19.

chances. I am glad you have said that. I keep changing into third

:20:20.:20:28.

gear, I have no idea why, I have been driving for 20 years, I know

:20:29.:20:32.

were first gear is, but for some reason I cannot find it today. First

:20:33.:20:42.

gear! Yes! Amazing. Well done, Barney. Yes! We have just tried the

:20:43.:20:50.

J Turn, one of the more simple moves, which will hopefully be a big

:20:51.:20:55.

part for me. Next is the most difficult one, drifting. Wish me

:20:56.:21:00.

luck. Drifting involves keeping the car under total control well

:21:01.:21:03.

deliberately skidding around a corner. It is tough, but Paul wants

:21:04.:21:10.

me to give 360 degrees around a traffic cone to demonstrate I can

:21:11.:21:15.

make the car do what I want. Build up your speed nice and slowly and

:21:16.:21:20.

you will feel the backend of the car step out. You will control the

:21:21.:21:25.

drifting with steering. Build up your speed. Back-end steps out,

:21:26.:21:32.

power. That is ridiculous. What am I doing wrong? You have to make sure

:21:33.:21:38.

the front is going faster than the back. Power, Power. Keep the power

:21:39.:21:47.

on. Go the other way now, now we are dancing. While performing a routine

:21:48.:21:53.

at high speed, one wrong move can have serious consequences. I need to

:21:54.:21:58.

show Paul I can do this. You have got it! Brilliance! That felt good.

:21:59.:22:09.

It is getting there. Not far away, I was very impressed with the J Turn,

:22:10.:22:16.

just need a bit more time to nail the drifting. Tomorrow we will be

:22:17.:22:20.

ramping its other bit more because he will have myself and other

:22:21.:22:23.

drivers around him and he needs to stand on his own two feed. It is

:22:24.:22:30.

really hard, really, really hard. I am one of those people who like to

:22:31.:22:33.

do things over and over again until I get them right. But I don't have

:22:34.:22:39.

enough time to do it over again before the performance. Next, I take

:22:40.:22:43.

on my final Blue Peter challenge. I have got to get it absolutely right.

:22:44.:22:49.

Can I put everything I have learned into practice? Can I keep my head

:22:50.:22:52.

when the pressure is on, in what is one of my toughest ever tests? Can I

:22:53.:23:02.

save my best... Until last? Exciting. One of my favourite films

:23:03.:23:10.

in six years. Find out what happens in part two next week. It is time to

:23:11.:23:15.

break another record, bring in the team...

:23:16.:23:24.

Look at the state of them. We will be doing some limbering. What we

:23:25.:23:32.

need to know? Will a map of the most limbo is in three minutes by a team

:23:33.:23:37.

of 25. The correct limbo is knees under the bar first and head, alas.

:23:38.:23:45.

The minimum is 60 limbos in three minutes. Me-macro let's do it. This

:23:46.:23:54.

is an official Guinness world record attempt. Three, two, one... Go! We

:23:55.:24:02.

have some CBBC phases. We have Lindsey Russell from Blue Peter.

:24:03.:24:30.

Typical Barney Harwood, that. Keep going, I bet faster. Let's get the

:24:31.:24:48.

record. U cannot touch the floor. Radzi, go and speak to some kids.

:24:49.:25:03.

This is carnage here. Do you train for this? I love competition.

:25:04.:25:14.

Feeling confident. Snake hips. I am getting a bit old, but my back

:25:15.:25:39.

still burns. Do you think we will get it? Yes. Hacker, can you say

:25:40.:25:47.

some words? Jack is properly intense. He is properly making sure.

:25:48.:26:03.

Jack! Jack! You cannot touch the floor, you cannot touch the bar. No

:26:04.:26:14.

sideways bending. Vicki, you do not miss a trick. This is good telly,

:26:15.:26:26.

this. It looks good. It looks good! 30 seconds left. Are you enjoying

:26:27.:26:36.

this? Yes. Do you think we will break the world record? Yes! This is

:26:37.:26:44.

now our third world record. Can we make this the third one? Looking

:26:45.:26:48.

good. I think that was good. Did we get

:26:49.:27:09.

it? Let's see where Shirley was hiding? On Lindsey's hat. The person

:27:10.:27:17.

who has won has won themselves a house in Spain. It is DJ Snowflake

:27:18.:27:23.

Deaver and their sister. We should find out the results. Next week's

:27:24.:27:27.

show will be all about Barney Harwood. Vicky, what are the

:27:28.:27:37.

results? 17 disqualified, that means your grand total today was 121 and

:27:38.:27:40.

it is a new record. The winner of our amazing code

:27:41.:27:56.

breaker competition next week, make sure you are watching. We will see

:27:57.:27:57.

you next week. Goodbye.

:27:58.:28:02.

The team attempt to smash world records involving hats, limbo dancing, balloons and peas! Barney has a go at learning a stunt car routine and Radzi works through the night to make sure your garden peas are as fresh as the day they are picked!
