Welcome to the world of Epic...

0:00:060:00:08

..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, strap yourself in and get ready to become

0:00:230:00:27

epic at everything!

0:00:270:00:29

Welcome to your total random fix of epicness.

0:00:300:00:33

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

0:00:370:00:41

dudes with the low-down on how you can do what they can do.

0:00:410:00:45

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

0:00:450:00:48

curve a ball, race like an Olympian,

0:00:480:00:51

treat a cut, herd sheep,

0:00:510:00:54

draw a cartoon,

0:00:540:00:56

and this kid shows you how to fly a fighter jet.

0:00:560:00:59

But before all that, it's time for your first stop

0:00:590:01:02

on your epic journey. Do you carry a deck of cards wherever you go?

0:01:020:01:06

No, course you don't. Nobody does, except wizards.

0:01:060:01:10

That's what wizards do. Like this fella.

0:01:100:01:12

I'm Ben, I'm a magician, and I'm going to show you how to do

0:01:140:01:17

a cool magic trick using a deck of cards.

0:01:170:01:21

OK, Ben, bring it on.

0:01:210:01:23

I've got the black eight and nine

0:01:250:01:27

and I'm going to place the nine about there,

0:01:270:01:31

and then I'll whack the eight about there.

0:01:310:01:34

We're with you so far, magic man.

0:01:340:01:36

Now, normally it would take me a while to find those two cards,

0:01:360:01:39

but check this out.

0:01:390:01:40

Pretty cool, huh?

0:01:430:01:45

Nice one, Harry Potter. Now, please, tell us how it's done.

0:01:450:01:48

This trick works because the two cards that you started with,

0:01:480:01:51

the eight of spades and the nine of clubs,

0:01:510:01:53

are not the two cards that you end with -

0:01:530:01:55

the eight of clubs and the nine of spades.

0:01:550:01:58

And the beauty of this trick is the audience never even

0:01:580:02:00

-realise they switch.

-Sneaky.

0:02:000:02:02

So the first thing you need to do is go through the deck and take out the

0:02:020:02:06

eight of spades and the nine of clubs,

0:02:060:02:08

and the eight of clubs and the nine of spades.

0:02:080:02:10

Then you need to take the eight of clubs and place it face down

0:02:100:02:13

on the top of the deck, and the nine of spades on the bottom of the deck.

0:02:130:02:16

-Got it so far.

-Then place the nine of clubs

0:02:160:02:20

and the eight of spades face down on the table, and you're ready to start.

0:02:200:02:23

Remember, do this bit before your audience arrive.

0:02:230:02:27

Otherwise, you'll be busted before you've even got going.

0:02:270:02:30

To start, tell your audience you've got a black eight and nine.

0:02:300:02:34

Do not mention their suits, as you don't want them

0:02:340:02:37

to remember them at the end.

0:02:370:02:38

Now ask your spectators to put the cards in separate

0:02:380:02:42

positions into the deck.

0:02:420:02:44

One there and one there.

0:02:440:02:47

Tell them it would take you a while to find those two cards,

0:02:470:02:51

which it would, but then you do this move.

0:02:510:02:54

Place your thumb on the top, four fingers on the bottom, you're going

0:02:550:02:59

to flick the cards into your other hand that is going to catch them.

0:02:590:03:03

All the cards will go except for the bottom and the top card. Like this.

0:03:030:03:08

Your audience will be amazed and they will have no idea

0:03:110:03:14

that these two cards are different to the ones you started with.

0:03:140:03:18

Suckers.

0:03:180:03:19

That was a cool magic trick with a deck of cards.

0:03:190:03:22

That's the first epic hit done

0:03:240:03:26

but there's way more to come. Next up is a football trick

0:03:260:03:28

so cool that it will make you look like a right hero on match day.

0:03:280:03:32

It's one of the most epic tricks ever -

0:03:350:03:37

the Bend It Like Beckham.

0:03:370:03:39

And we've got one of the best female footballers in the country

0:03:390:03:42

to show you how to do it.

0:03:420:03:44

Hi, I'm Kim Little, I'm midfielder for Arsenal Ladies

0:03:440:03:47

and I'm going to show you how to bend a ball like Beckham.

0:03:470:03:49

Goal! Now, show us how you did it.

0:03:510:03:54

Firstly, you need to assess the situation and see

0:03:540:03:56

if the ball is near enough to the goal to shoot.

0:03:560:03:59

Next, select where you're going to shoot,

0:03:590:04:00

either near-post or far-post,

0:04:000:04:02

and if you're going to put it over the wall or around the wall.

0:04:020:04:04

Wall means defenders, by the way.

0:04:040:04:06

To coil your free kick around the defenders, you want to take four

0:04:060:04:09

steps back, and use the inside of your foot for power and accuracy.

0:04:090:04:13

This also puts a spin on the ball, which makes it curve in the air.

0:04:130:04:16

Practise lots in the training field, and bending it like Beckham

0:04:160:04:19

will look like this...

0:04:190:04:21

And that's how to bend a ball like Beckham.

0:04:230:04:25

Cheers, Kim, you swervy striker.

0:04:250:04:28

Right, now for something totally different.

0:04:280:04:31

If you're the kind of kid who likes to move sheep around,

0:04:310:04:33

then check this out.

0:04:330:04:35

We've got a top farmer to tell you all you need to

0:04:360:04:39

know about sheep-herding.

0:04:390:04:40

I'm Gareth, and this is how we herd sheep.

0:04:400:04:42

Gareth Wyn Jones has been herding sheep for over 40 years.

0:04:460:04:49

He's an expert in all things farming.

0:04:490:04:51

But tell us, Gareth, how do you herd sheep?

0:04:510:04:54

There's several types of dogs used to herd sheep,

0:04:540:04:57

-but I tend to use the Border Collie.

-Wise choice.

0:04:570:05:00

-I think they're a lovely dog.

-Oh, Tess, you are a little cutie!

0:05:000:05:04

They're very hardworking, very obedient

0:05:040:05:06

-and they're man's best friend.

-Aww.

0:05:060:05:09

Once you've got your dog, it needs to be trained.

0:05:090:05:12

There's several commands that we use

0:05:120:05:14

and the main one is the stop command.

0:05:140:05:16

HE WHISTLES Lie down.

0:05:160:05:18

That's the most important command you'll ever have on your dog.

0:05:180:05:21

So then, we've got the "come by" which is to the left.

0:05:210:05:25

Come by.

0:05:250:05:27

Then, you have the "away" which is the command to the right.

0:05:280:05:32

Away. HE WHISTLES

0:05:320:05:34

And then you have the give-up, the "that'll do".

0:05:340:05:38

That'll do.

0:05:380:05:40

'And give them plenty of love.'

0:05:400:05:41

Because once they've done their job, they need a little bit of TLC.

0:05:410:05:45

Good girl, give up, good girl.

0:05:450:05:47

After lots of cuddling, training and practise, you're finally

0:05:470:05:50

ready to herd some sheep.

0:05:500:05:52

Away. HE WHISTLES

0:05:550:05:57

Look at those little fellas run! Go on, Tess!

0:05:570:06:01

So, Gareth uses different commands...

0:06:010:06:04

Come by.

0:06:040:06:05

-..to instruct Tess...

-Lie down.

0:06:050:06:07

..to direct the sheep into the pen.

0:06:070:06:10

Job well done, Gareth and Tess.

0:06:100:06:12

And that's how you herd sheep.

0:06:120:06:14

Hey, that'll do.

0:06:160:06:18

If you thought that was epic, then wait until you see this lot.

0:06:180:06:22

This girl tells you how to run off these things.

0:06:220:06:25

This guy tells you how to treat a cut.

0:06:270:06:29

Ah! Ah!

0:06:290:06:32

-And this dude shows you how to turn your mates into cartoons.

-Ta-da!

0:06:320:06:36

But first, do you want to be a fighter pilot?

0:06:360:06:38

This kid will show you how.

0:06:380:06:41

Fighter jets are most definitely epic.

0:06:430:06:45

If you had about £70 million going spare,

0:06:450:06:47

you could treat yourself one of the fastest planes in the skies.

0:06:470:06:50

The only problem is, you'd also need to be one of the most

0:06:500:06:53

highly-trained pilots in the world.

0:06:530:06:56

Think it's unlikely you'd get to fly one? Well, picture this scene.

0:06:560:06:59

You're at an airshow and you take a wrong turn.

0:07:020:07:06

Before you know it, you're mistaken for a pilot,

0:07:060:07:08

put in a fighter jet, and told to get going.

0:07:080:07:12

Looks like it's time for you to earn your wings.

0:07:120:07:14

But how on earth do you fly one of these bad-boys?

0:07:140:07:18

Hi, my name's Mark Bowman and I'm a test pilot.

0:07:180:07:21

I'm going to show you how to fly this fighter jet,

0:07:210:07:24

a most awesome machine.

0:07:240:07:26

Check this dude out, he looks like he means business.

0:07:260:07:29

Let's head to the fancy flight simulator that all

0:07:290:07:32

pilots master their skills in.

0:07:320:07:35

So here we are on the end of the runway and ready to go,

0:07:350:07:37

and I'm going to accelerate to 150mph in four seconds.

0:07:370:07:40

My left hand controls the throttle leavers,

0:07:400:07:43

and I have to push them fully forward for maximum speed.

0:07:430:07:47

Warning - this isn't the ideal time to eat a packed lunch.

0:07:470:07:51

To get the aircraft airborne, I have the control column in front of me.

0:07:510:07:54

I need to just pull this stick backwards,

0:07:540:07:57

-and she goes straight up like a rocket.

-Boom!

0:07:570:08:00

If you did manage to eat any of that packed lunch,

0:08:000:08:02

this would be the moment you'll probably say hello to it again.

0:08:020:08:05

Controlling the aircraft is easy.

0:08:060:08:08

If I want to go left, I turn to the left with the stick.

0:08:080:08:12

Going to the right, I turn to the right with the stick.

0:08:120:08:15

In fact, if I push the stick hard over, I go round and round,

0:08:150:08:19

a little bit like being in a washing machine.

0:08:190:08:22

How completely cool would that be?

0:08:220:08:24

That's as long as your idea of cool is

0:08:240:08:26

feeling like a pair of dirty socks on a spin cycle.

0:08:260:08:29

When I'm out there, it's important that I keep safe.

0:08:310:08:35

I sit on an ejection seat, and I have a handle underneath my legs

0:08:350:08:38

if I've to get out in a hurry.

0:08:380:08:39

But what happens if you actually pull that handle?

0:08:390:08:42

Oh, right. Bad idea.

0:08:420:08:44

Landing the aircraft couldn't be simpler,

0:08:460:08:48

all I need to do is put the circular computer symbol at the point where I

0:08:480:08:52

want to land, and fly down that path until the wheels touch the runway.

0:08:520:08:57

Really? This flying thing is easy.

0:08:570:08:59

And that's how to fly a fighter jet.

0:09:010:09:03

And that's also how you pose in front of a fighter jet.

0:09:030:09:06

Thanks, Mark. Two things in one. What a guy.

0:09:060:09:09

From speeding in a fighter jet to sprinting off the starting blocks.

0:09:120:09:15

If you want to be an Olympic superstar, then pay close attention.

0:09:150:09:19

Hi, I'm Katarina Johnson-Thompson. I'm an Olympic athlete,

0:09:190:09:23

and I'm going to show you how to be the first off the starting blocks.

0:09:230:09:26

Olympic heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson knows all there is

0:09:260:09:30

to know about using these babies. They're starting blocks.

0:09:300:09:33

Use them well, and they'll help you kick off a race perfectly.

0:09:330:09:37

Using starting blocks for the first time is a bit weird,

0:09:370:09:40

but it gives you a solid platform for you to push off.

0:09:400:09:42

If it's good enough for you, Olympic hero lady,

0:09:420:09:45

it's definitely good enough for us. But how do we use them?

0:09:450:09:48

You need to put your hands shoulder-width apart,

0:09:480:09:50

and your fingers and thumbs parallel to the starting line.

0:09:500:09:53

Ooh, nice nails, girlfriend.

0:09:540:09:55

Right, we've got our stance sorted, what next?

0:09:550:09:59

Push off with your back leg, and drive forward.

0:09:590:10:01

And she's off! And the crowd go wild.

0:10:030:10:05

And that was how to be the first off the starting blocks.

0:10:060:10:09

Thanks, Katarina, give that girl a gold medal.

0:10:090:10:12

Onwards we go, my friends. Next, we all get them and, oh! How they can

0:10:140:10:20

hurt, but we've got someone who can help you deal with them.

0:10:200:10:23

I'm Dr Chris Van Tulleken,

0:10:250:10:26

and I'm going to be showing you how to deal with cuts.

0:10:260:10:29

Cuts and grazes are a really common injury,

0:10:290:10:31

and for the most part, they're not serious.

0:10:310:10:34

In fact, if you're not getting cuts and grazes,

0:10:340:10:36

-you're probably not having enough fun.

-What?!

0:10:360:10:38

Most cuts, you can deal with yourself.

0:10:380:10:40

But there are some bigger cuts that need a grown-up

0:10:400:10:42

and special medical attention.

0:10:420:10:44

If you've got a serious cut, what you can do while

0:10:440:10:47

you're waiting for a grown-up or medical help

0:10:470:10:49

is put pressure on it in order to stop bleeding.

0:10:490:10:52

If you've got a small cut, I'll show you how to deal with it. Argh! A cut!

0:10:520:10:57

-Luckily, this one's made of strawberry jam.

-Oh, he's a joker!

0:10:570:10:59

The first thing to do is to clean the cut under running water.

0:10:590:11:02

OK, give it a good clean.

0:11:020:11:04

Pat the area dry with a clean towel.

0:11:040:11:07

After you've dried it, put on a plaster.

0:11:070:11:09

But make sure you're not allergic to them, first.

0:11:090:11:12

Don't use antiseptic creams or sprays,

0:11:120:11:14

they can interfere with the wound healing.

0:11:140:11:16

If it continues to ooze blood,

0:11:160:11:17

you can use some tissue to apply pressure to it.

0:11:170:11:20

-I feel a bit queasy.

-Alternatively, if you're lucky enough to have a cut

0:11:200:11:23

made of strawberry jam like mine is, you can just lick it off.

0:11:230:11:26

-He's not going to.... Oh, he has.

-Mmm!

0:11:260:11:29

So remember, clean your hands and the cut.

0:11:290:11:32

Pat it dry, apply a plaster if you're not allergic to them, and if

0:11:320:11:38

it continues to bleed, apply more pressure until you can get help.

0:11:380:11:41

And that is how to treat a cut.

0:11:410:11:43

Right, time for one last dose of epicness,

0:11:440:11:47

and this one is for all you budding artists out there.

0:11:470:11:50

If you have a pencil and a friend, then you can do this!

0:11:500:11:53

Here's CBBC's Ed Petrie to show you how to create

0:11:550:11:58

your very own masterpiece.

0:11:580:12:00

I'm Ed Petrie off the telly, and I'm going to show you how to turn

0:12:000:12:03

someone you know into a cartoon character.

0:12:030:12:05

-He got a cat on his T-shirt?

-First, you need a picture of the

0:12:050:12:08

person you're drawing, so you can keep checking it all the time,

0:12:080:12:10

make sure it looks like them.

0:12:100:12:12

I've picked my younger brother John because he's really annoying.

0:12:120:12:15

-It's payback time!

-What's with all the cats?

0:12:150:12:17

Now, the first thing I always start on is the eyes.

0:12:170:12:20

It's like real life, when you meet someone for the first time,

0:12:200:12:23

you look in their eyes, you don't look at their hand or their foot.

0:12:230:12:26

-That would be a bit weird.

-I look at their hands and feet.

0:12:260:12:29

Then you want to find a feature to exaggerate a bit,

0:12:290:12:31

so I've picked my brother's nose.

0:12:310:12:34

You've picked your brothers nose? Bit disgusting, really.

0:12:340:12:36

-I've made it a bit wider than it is in normal life.

-Ah, I see.

0:12:360:12:39

When you draw the hair, don't worry about drawing every single

0:12:390:12:42

little hair on their head because you'll be there all day.

0:12:420:12:45

So I'm just going to give him a big block of hair.

0:12:450:12:47

Also, the nice thing about drawing is that you can add things

0:12:470:12:50

you can't have in a photograph, so I'm going to put a little

0:12:500:12:52

love-heart in because he loves his cat so much.

0:12:520:12:55

I'm a dog person, myself.

0:12:550:12:56

Once I've got it all drawn out, if I'm doing something big like this,

0:12:560:13:00

what I like to do afterwards is thicken the lines.

0:13:000:13:04

It makes it look like you've done it with a brush,

0:13:040:13:06

-and you're really professional and clever.

-Nice tip, Ed.

0:13:060:13:09

So once you've done that, it's time to colour it in.
