Welcome to the world of epic.

0:00:060:00:09

The place where you can become a master at everything on the planet.

0:00:110:00:15

No matter what it is, this programme shows you how to do it.

0:00:170:00:21

So, sit back,

0:00:230:00:24

strap yourself in and get ready to become epic at everything.

0:00:240:00:29

Welcome to your total random fix of epic-ness.

0:00:300:00:33

We've got an amazing line-up of experts, hotshots

0:00:350:00:38

and all-round dudes with the low-down

0:00:380:00:40

on how you can do what they can do.

0:00:400:00:42

In just 15 minutes, you will know how to...

0:00:450:00:48

do the splits, flick a card,

0:00:480:00:50

milk a cow, defy gravity,

0:00:500:00:53

drum, and this kid shows you how to survive a zombie apocalypse.

0:00:530:00:59

But before all that,

0:00:590:01:00

it's time for the first stop on your journey to becoming epic.

0:01:000:01:04

Do you like dancing? Do you like streets?

0:01:040:01:07

Well, here's a cool street dancing move

0:01:070:01:09

that will make you totally epic.

0:01:090:01:12

Hi, I'm Turbo, I'm a dancer.

0:01:120:01:14

I'm going to teach you a classic street dance move

0:01:140:01:16

called the Resurrection.

0:01:160:01:17

Turbo is cool. Just look at his hair and his moves.

0:01:170:01:22

He's also an astronaut. That might be a joke.

0:01:220:01:25

So with this move, you need to be laying down on the floor

0:01:270:01:30

with your hands flat on the ground.

0:01:300:01:32

I hope you've checked for dirt first, Turbo.

0:01:320:01:34

From here, you're going to push with your hands

0:01:340:01:37

up on to your left knee,

0:01:370:01:38

raising your right leg up in the air.

0:01:380:01:40

Ooh, power move!

0:01:400:01:43

The next step from here is to swing your right leg down to the floor,

0:01:430:01:46

push with your hands and pull yourself up until you're standing.

0:01:460:01:50

-Sweet as a nut.

-When you put those moves together,

0:01:520:01:55

your Resurrection should look like this.

0:01:550:01:57

Whoa! Crazy skills, Turbo.

0:01:590:02:02

Rumour has it that Turbo performed this at the House of Commons.

0:02:020:02:05

That might also be a joke.

0:02:050:02:07

And that, my friends, is how you do a cool street dance move.

0:02:090:02:12

Right, that's the first hit of epic-ness done and dusted,

0:02:150:02:19

but do not worry. Our journey continues.

0:02:190:02:22

If you've got a deck of cards in the house

0:02:220:02:24

and you're bored of playing snap, then please, check this guy out.

0:02:240:02:27

My name's Ben Hanlin, I'm a magician and this is how to flick a card.

0:02:290:02:34

Ah, the classic card flick. Watch and learn.

0:02:340:02:37

First of all, hold the deck face down in one hand

0:02:370:02:40

with your thumb on top and your index finger on the bottom.

0:02:400:02:43

Then, with your thumb, push off the top card about an inch or so.

0:02:430:02:47

Now, with your ring finger, put pressure on the card.

0:02:470:02:49

Then when the pressure's there,

0:02:490:02:51

release it, the card will flick right off, like this.

0:02:510:02:54

Whoa, hang on a minute there, Ben.

0:02:550:02:58

Let's do a r-r-rewind on that. First, slide the top card off.

0:02:580:03:02

Then, second, squeeze it with your finger and thumb.

0:03:020:03:05

Then, when you're ready, let it fly.

0:03:050:03:08

When you get good,

0:03:080:03:09

you can flick the card off and catch it with your other hand, like this.

0:03:090:03:13

-And that's how you flick a card.

-Cheers, Ben. Thanks for that.

0:03:130:03:18

On we go.

0:03:180:03:19

If you thought that was good, this next one will send your epic-ometer

0:03:190:03:22

into overdrive because it's one of the most epic gymnastic moves ever.

0:03:220:03:26

Hi, I'm Naomi Wilkinson and I'm going

0:03:280:03:30

to teach you how to do the splits.

0:03:300:03:33

That's right, we're talking about the front splits.

0:03:330:03:36

And that's right, CBBC's Naomi Wilkinson is going to show us

0:03:360:03:40

how to do it. Ooh, I'm all excited.

0:03:400:03:42

To master the splits, you need determination, hard work

0:03:440:03:48

-and most importantly...

-Legs.

-..patience.

-That too.

0:03:480:03:51

The splits are essentially one big stretch,

0:03:510:03:53

and they aren't something that's going to happen overnight.

0:03:530:03:56

To achieve them,

0:03:560:03:57

you're going to have to practice lots of different stretches every day.

0:03:570:04:01

OK, a word to the wise. Before you do any stretches, you must warm up.

0:04:010:04:05

Five minutes of either running, fast walking, star jumps,

0:04:050:04:08

skipping - anything to get your heart pumping.

0:04:080:04:11

Once you've warmed up, it's time to stretch those legs.

0:04:110:04:13

-Show us those stretches, Naomi.

-Hold each stretch for about 30 seconds.

0:04:130:04:18

It might feel a little uncomfortable

0:04:180:04:20

but you should never, ever stretch to the point of pain.

0:04:200:04:24

-So, when you feel warm and flexible enough, go for it.

-Let's do this!

0:04:240:04:29

So, you're going to start in a lunge, knee over your toe, toe facing

0:04:290:04:33

forward, hands by your front foot, lower your back knee to the floor,

0:04:330:04:37

tuck your back toes under and slowly slide back into the splits.

0:04:370:04:43

Use your arms to take your weight.

0:04:430:04:45

Only give your muscles as much

0:04:450:04:46

or as little stretching as feels comfortable

0:04:460:04:49

and keep your back knee facing the floor.

0:04:490:04:51

Now, remember, you won't be able to do this straight away.

0:04:510:04:54

Take your time with the stretches

0:04:540:04:55

and then eventually you'll be able to do the front splits.

0:04:550:04:59

There you have it, that's how you do the splits.

0:04:590:05:02

-Does anyone know how to get out of these?

-No, but thanks, Naomi. Bye!

0:05:020:05:06

Are you feeling epic? We've only just started.

0:05:080:05:11

There's still all this to come. We'll show you how to get to grips

0:05:110:05:15

-with one of these beauties.

-MOOING

0:05:150:05:17

This super scientist will help you defy gravity.

0:05:170:05:21

And this dude shows you how to hit things with sticks.

0:05:210:05:25

But first, have you ever wondered what to do

0:05:250:05:27

if zombies tried to take over your town?

0:05:270:05:30

Then this kid can help.

0:05:300:05:31

Who doesn't love zombies and their crazy dance moves?

0:05:330:05:36

Actually, apart from Michael Jackson, most people,

0:05:360:05:39

probably just think they're really terrifying.

0:05:390:05:42

The legend of these undead brain-hungry creatures

0:05:420:05:44

has been around for ever.

0:05:440:05:46

They're totally not real, but imagine if they were.

0:05:460:05:49

What would you do if you came face-to-face with one?

0:05:490:05:53

Well, picture the scene.

0:05:530:05:54

You're at the optician's,

0:05:560:05:57

she's running through the different lenses until you can see clearly.

0:05:570:06:02

When you can finally see,

0:06:060:06:08

you discover your optician has turned into...a zombie!

0:06:080:06:11

Grrr!

0:06:110:06:13

What's more,

0:06:130:06:14

there's a full-on zombie apocalypse kicking off in your town.

0:06:140:06:17

You need a plan and we know just the man to help.

0:06:170:06:20

Hi, I'm Charlie Higson

0:06:220:06:23

and I'm going to tell you how to survive a zombie apocalypse.

0:06:230:06:27

Actor, comedian and zombie author Charlie Higson knows

0:06:270:06:31

everything there is to know about the walking dead. Creepy, but cool.

0:06:310:06:36

OK, Charlie, what's the first tip?

0:06:370:06:39

The main rule in a zombie apocalypse is, don't get bitten.

0:06:390:06:43

Because that is how the zombie plague is passed on.

0:06:450:06:48

Of course, an even better tip is, don't get eaten.

0:06:480:06:51

Don't get eaten by a zombie.

0:06:520:06:55

Definitely good advice to kick off with.

0:06:550:06:57

-KID SCREAMS

-What else should we know?

0:06:570:07:00

It's very important to find somewhere safe to hole up.

0:07:000:07:02

Somewhere that's easy to defend

0:07:020:07:04

but where you can also be self-sufficient.

0:07:040:07:06

A supermarket is not a bad bet. A very good supply of stuff to eat.

0:07:060:07:10

Oh, great tip, zombie man...

0:07:100:07:13

or maybe not.

0:07:130:07:15

You will also need to arm yourself. Zombies are not nice creatures.

0:07:150:07:20

Anything you can get your hands on, really.

0:07:200:07:23

Cricket bats, golf clubs, bow and arrows, heavy frying pans,

0:07:230:07:27

javelins left over from the Olympics. A tank is preferable, though.

0:07:270:07:32

Right, we're tooled up. What next?

0:07:320:07:35

If you do come face-to-face with a zombie,

0:07:350:07:36

you're going to have to take it down.

0:07:360:07:39

ZOMBIE: Ooh!

0:07:390:07:41

Zombie folklore says the only way to stop them is to destroy the brain.

0:07:410:07:46

It's not going to be a nice job, but if it's you or the zombie,

0:07:460:07:50

-it's bye-bye, zombie.

-We hear you, Charlie.

0:07:500:07:54

It's definitely good night, zombie.

0:07:540:07:56

And we won't be tucking it in or giving it a bedtime kiss. Oh, no.

0:07:560:08:01

And that was how to survive a zombie apocalypse.

0:08:020:08:06

Good stuff, Charlie. Be gone, zombies!

0:08:060:08:08

From defeating evil to defying gravity,

0:08:120:08:15

here's a science lady who will arm you with some amazing skills.

0:08:150:08:19

Hi, I'm Fran Scott and I'm going to show you how to defy gravity.

0:08:200:08:24

-Whoa!

-Get a slinky and hold it up and let the rest of it unravel

0:08:240:08:30

until it's nice and still.

0:08:300:08:31

What we're going to do is drop this slinky and the top of it will fall

0:08:310:08:35

but the bottom of the slinky should, for a moment,

0:08:350:08:38

stay where it is and defy gravity.

0:08:380:08:41

-No way!

-Here goes.

0:08:410:08:43

Hang on, that might just look like a dropped slinky

0:08:450:08:48

but watch again when we slow it down.

0:08:480:08:51

Keep your eye on the bottom of the slinky.

0:08:510:08:54

Fran releases it but the bottom doesn't move.

0:08:540:08:57

How do you explain that, then?

0:08:570:08:59

When I'm holding the slinky,

0:08:590:09:01

gravity is pulling it down but my hand is holding it up.

0:09:010:09:04

When I let go of the slinky, the top of it falls

0:09:040:09:07

but the bottom of it remains where it is just for a little bit

0:09:070:09:10

and that's because it takes a while

0:09:100:09:12

for the message, that I've actually let go of the top of the slinky

0:09:120:09:16

to reach its bottom.

0:09:160:09:18

But when it does, the whole thing falls to the ground.

0:09:180:09:20

There you go, gravity defied.

0:09:220:09:25

Our next stop on Planet Epic is for all you milk-lovers.

0:09:270:09:30

That's everyone, right? Except me, I'm lactose intolerant.

0:09:300:09:35

Check out how you milk a cow.

0:09:380:09:40

You heard me, that milk you drink comes from this beautiful beast.

0:09:400:09:44

Here's top farmer Gareth Wyn Jones to show you how.

0:09:440:09:47

-I'm Gareth and I'm going to show you how to milk a cow by hand.

-By hand?!

0:09:480:09:53

We need to make sure that everything's clean.

0:09:530:09:56

-Our hands, the bucket, even the old cow.

-Rude!

0:09:560:09:59

If we're not clean, we can get germs into the milk

0:09:590:10:02

-and it can make you sick.

-Oh, we do not want that.

0:10:020:10:06

The cows need the routine.

0:10:060:10:08

-They need to be milked twice a day at the same time.

-Why?

0:10:080:10:12

Keeps the cows happy, and we get plenty of milk.

0:10:120:10:16

Cows are very big and strong, so you've got to be careful.

0:10:160:10:20

Don't stand behind or don't stand in the wrong place.

0:10:200:10:24

-Er, yeah, it might wee on you.

-SPLASHING

0:10:240:10:27

Once we're clean, we're ready to milk.

0:10:270:10:30

-Now, this is an udder.

-Udder.

-And this is a teat.

-Teat.

0:10:300:10:35

-So, the bucket.

-Bucket.

0:10:350:10:37

You get into position and we start to milk

0:10:370:10:42

so your thumb's at the top of the teat

0:10:420:10:44

and your index finger comes round

0:10:440:10:46

and each finger squashes as the milk comes through.

0:10:460:10:51

So you squash, squash. Last one, get the last drop, release.

0:10:510:10:57

Squeeze, release, squeeze, release. Milk out, in bucket, job done.

0:10:570:11:01

-Once you've done that, you can do it two-handed.

-Steady on there, Gareth.

0:11:010:11:06

-Let's not get carried away.

-And that's how you milk a cow.

0:11:060:11:10

Nice one, Gareth. Make mine a pint of full fat.

0:11:100:11:13

Right, time for one last dose of epic-ness.

0:11:150:11:19

Ask yourself this - do you like hitting things?

0:11:190:11:22

Do you want to be in a band?

0:11:220:11:24

If your answers are yes, then this will be right up your street.

0:11:240:11:27

They may usually be at the back of the stage

0:11:310:11:33

but don't underestimate the importance of the drummer.

0:11:330:11:36

When they're not on top of their kit,

0:11:360:11:38

they're usually the most important member of the band

0:11:380:11:41

holding all of the music together... most of the time!

0:11:410:11:45

And, to show you how to do it, we caught up backstage with

0:11:450:11:48

one of the best rock drummers in the business.

0:11:480:11:51

Hey, what's up? I'm Rob with Enter Shikari

0:11:510:11:53

and I'm going to teach you how to play the drums.

0:11:530:11:55

DRUM ROLL

0:11:550:11:58

First up is how to hold your sticks.

0:11:580:12:00

Hold it between your thumb and your forefinger nice and loosely

0:12:000:12:04

so the balance is good. It's the same on both hands.

0:12:040:12:08

-Next up, it's how to hit a drum.

-Sounds important.

0:12:080:12:11

Keep a nice, loose wrist.

0:12:110:12:13

Let the stick fall down and bounce back up off the drum,

0:12:130:12:16

letting gravity do the work.

0:12:160:12:18

Next up is doing single-stroke rolls on the drum.

0:12:200:12:24

You're going to be doing them in groups of four,

0:12:240:12:26

alternating between the right and left hand.

0:12:260:12:29

One, two, three, four.

0:12:290:12:31

Drum basics, then. Hold your sticks all nice and loosey-goosey.

0:12:310:12:36

Let it hit the drum and bounce back, and count to four.

0:12:360:12:39

When you get confident with that, you'll bring more of the drum kit in.

0:12:390:12:42

You're going to do the four beats on the cymbal.

0:12:420:12:44

On the first beat, we're going to have a kick drum

0:12:440:12:46

and on the third beat, we're going to have a snare drum.

0:12:460:12:50

So it should sound like this.

0:12:500:12:52

SIMPLE DRUM BEAT One, two, three, four,

0:12:520:12:54

one, two, three, four,

0:12:540:12:56

one, two, three, four.

0:12:560:12:58

So when you're happy with the beat, you can build up

0:12:580:13:00

and get faster each time.

0:13:000:13:02

One, two, three, four, one, two, three, four.

0:13:020:13:05

HE PLAYS FASTER One, two, three, four.

0:13:050:13:08

One, two, three, four, one, two, three, four,

0:13:080:13:10

one, two, three, four... Drumming's epic!

0:13:100:13:12

So, after you've practised a lot, got good, get your mates together,

0:13:130:13:16

form a band and you could end up sounding something like this.

0:13:160:13:19

ROCK MUSIC PLAYS

0:13:190:13:21

Cheers, Rob.

0:13:210:13:22

I bet his neighbours love him(!)

0:13:250:13:27

So there it is, you just enjoyed 15 minutes

0:13:270:13:30

of being shown how to be totally epic.

0:13:300:13:33

If you've been paying close attention,

0:13:330:13:35

you should now be able to try this,

0:13:350:13:37

and this, and even that.

0:13:370:13:40

Now, go forth and be epic at everything!

0:13:400:13:43

If you want to be really epic,

0:13:490:13:51

then head on over to the CBBC website,

0:13:510:13:53

where you can watch all the videos again,

0:13:530:13:57

and again, and again,

0:13:570:13:59

so you can truly master your epic-ness.

0:13:590:14:03

Epic!
