Welcome to the world of Epic.

0:00:060:00:09

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

0:00:110:00:16

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

0:00:170:00:22

So sit back,

0:00:220:00:24

strap yourself in and get ready to become [email protected]!

0:00:240:00:29

Welcome to your total random fix of epicness.

0:00:310:00:34

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

0:00:370:00:40

and all-round dudes with the lowdown on how you can do what they can do.

0:00:400:00:45

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

0:00:450:00:47

bhangra dance...

0:00:470:00:49

do a cheerleading move...

0:00:490:00:50

make some dancing goo...

0:00:500:00:52

draw a comic...

0:00:520:00:53

get rid of a spider,

0:00:530:00:55

and this kid shows you how to survive a lightning storm.

0:00:550:00:59

But before all that we've got to check in

0:00:590:01:01

for our first appointment of epicness.

0:01:010:01:03

What do you get if you mix snow and planks of wood? This!

0:01:030:01:07

Freestyle skiing - the most epic winter sport going.

0:01:100:01:13

It includes jumps, spins...

0:01:130:01:16

and...whatever that is.

0:01:160:01:19

But how do you become a freestyle skier, I hear you ask.

0:01:190:01:22

To show you how, we've got this dude.

0:01:220:01:25

Hello. I'm James Woods, or Woodsy,

0:01:250:01:28

and I'm going to show you how to freestyle ski like a pro.

0:01:280:01:31

Woodsy has opted for both long and short hair. I like it.

0:01:310:01:35

The first thing you've got to do is learn how to ski.

0:01:350:01:38

There, I've learnt it.

0:01:400:01:42

Obviously learning to ski takes a little bit longer.

0:01:420:01:45

Next, you've got to get used to being in the air.

0:01:450:01:47

And that's a small jump and we call it a pop.

0:01:470:01:50

The more you practise, the easier and smoother your tricks will look.

0:01:530:01:56

Next is the rails, and again we're going to start basic

0:01:580:02:01

and work our way up.

0:02:010:02:03

The key here is to keep nice equal weight on both skis.

0:02:030:02:06

If you can't get yourself to a slope every day, skateboarding

0:02:060:02:09

and rollerblading really helps.

0:02:090:02:11

Once you've done that and mastered your fear, in a couple of years

0:02:110:02:14

you'll be a freeskier and you'll be able to do tricks like this.

0:02:140:02:19

Whoa, whoa, hold on, Woodsy, with long and short hair. A few years?!

0:02:190:02:22

I haven't got that sort of time!

0:02:220:02:25

But if you do, then you just need to learn to ski,

0:02:250:02:28

do some small jumps, medium jumps, huge jumps,

0:02:280:02:32

practise it for a few years, and you'll be able to do this.

0:02:320:02:36

And that is how to freestyle ski like a pro.

0:02:370:02:39

OK, that's our first taste of epicness over and done with,

0:02:410:02:44

and if that's got you hungry for more,

0:02:440:02:46

then get those leg muscles at the ready

0:02:460:02:47

because we've got a cheerleader to show you a supercool stunt.

0:02:470:02:51

Hi, I'm Luke. I'm going to show you a cheerleading jump - the toe touch.

0:02:530:02:56

Five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four.

0:02:560:03:00

Five, six, seven, eight.

0:03:000:03:02

First, bend your knees and clasp your arms in front of you like this.

0:03:020:03:06

-Got it.

-Next you're going to push your arms up.

0:03:060:03:09

-Yup.

-And straighten your knees.

-OK.

0:03:090:03:11

Finally you're going to slice your arms down into a T,

0:03:110:03:14

explode through your legs, jumping, landing on the balls of your feet.

0:03:140:03:18

So that's arms out, legs up, jump and land. Easy.

0:03:180:03:21

Put those steps together and it should look something like this.

0:03:210:03:24

Five, six, seven, eight, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.

0:03:240:03:29

And that's how to do a cheerleading toe touch.

0:03:290:03:32

Cheers to you, Lukey, my mate. You wonderful cheerleader.

0:03:340:03:37

Now for something totally different.

0:03:370:03:39

If you have a pen and paper then you can do this next epic little tip.

0:03:390:03:43

I'm Ed Petrie and I'm going to show you how to draw your own comic strip.

0:03:500:03:53

Why? Because I can.

0:03:530:03:55

So the first thing you need to do

0:03:550:03:57

if you're going to draw your own comic strip is have an idea

0:03:570:03:59

about what the comic strip is going to be about.

0:03:590:04:02

Nobody wants to read a comic about a man going to the shops.

0:04:020:04:04

It'd be rubbish. So I've come up with an idea for a guy called Gary Rotter.

0:04:040:04:09

He's the world's worst wizard.

0:04:090:04:10

Now I need a story, so I was thinking he's rubbish wizard

0:04:100:04:13

and he hasn't done his homework so he gets turned into a frog.

0:04:130:04:16

But finds out he quite likes being a frog

0:04:160:04:17

because it means he can catch flies with his tongue.

0:04:170:04:20

The next thing to do is block it out.

0:04:200:04:21

Don't worry too much about the drawing or anything.

0:04:210:04:23

You just want to get the story down.

0:04:230:04:25

-I've worked out I need five panels for this.

-Panels?

0:04:250:04:27

That's the squares that you draw the cartoon in.

0:04:270:04:29

It looks a bit weird when I draw it out on the page.

0:04:290:04:32

It's not symmetrical. So I'm going to do a title panel as well and have six

0:04:320:04:35

and it will look nice and neat.

0:04:350:04:36

So the next thing you're going to do is try

0:04:360:04:38

and do a pretty good drawing in pencil.

0:04:380:04:41

This may take you some time.

0:04:420:04:45

That probably seemed really quick to you. It took hours.

0:04:470:04:51

Anyway, there you go. My finished pencil drawing.

0:04:510:04:55

-I'm happy with my drawing.

-He's happy.

-Now the scary bit. The ink.

0:04:550:04:58

Now you can use any pen you like to do this, whatever suits you.

0:04:580:05:02

I've found over the years that I quite like using a nib pen.

0:05:020:05:07

Again, this may take some time.

0:05:070:05:09

Whoa, what are you doing, Ed? Don't rub it out, we haven't seen it yet.

0:05:120:05:16

-Now I've rubbed all the pencil off.

-Ah.

0:05:160:05:18

Finally, to colour it in, I like to use watercolours.

0:05:180:05:21

I can be nice and messy with them.

0:05:210:05:23

Again, this may take you some time

0:05:230:05:25

so whilst Ed does that I'll remind you how to make your own comic.

0:05:250:05:29

Get an idea. Draw it in the panels in pencil. Go over it in pen.

0:05:290:05:34

Add a splash of colour and voila.

0:05:340:05:36

-And that is how you design your own comic strip.

-Nice one, Ed.

0:05:360:05:40

Hey, if you think that's randomly epic

0:05:400:05:42

then wait until you see what's still to come.

0:05:420:05:45

This girl will tell you how to make some goo dance.

0:05:450:05:48

This dude will show you how to bhangra dance.

0:05:490:05:52

And this guy takes pest control to a whole new level.

0:05:520:05:56

But first, there's one in a million chance of it happening.

0:05:560:05:59

But if you're still worried about getting struck by one

0:05:590:06:02

of the most epic forces of nature, then this kid can help.

0:06:020:06:06

It strikes Planet Earth over eight million times a day

0:06:060:06:09

and can generate heat five times hotter than the surface of the sun.

0:06:090:06:14

We're talking lightning.

0:06:140:06:16

So if you happen to find yourself in the same place that it strikes,

0:06:160:06:19

best be prepared. Picture the scene.

0:06:190:06:23

It's a glorious day and you've taken your dog out for some walkies.

0:06:230:06:26

Suddenly, the weather takes a turn for the worse.

0:06:260:06:29

So you and your pooch run around looking for shelter. Before you

0:06:290:06:32

know it you're both dodging killer electric thunderbolts from the sky.

0:06:320:06:36

It sounds like hard work. Don't let it happen to you.

0:06:360:06:39

Luckily for you,

0:06:410:06:42

we've got a survival expert who can help you avoid it.

0:06:420:06:46

Hi, I'm Paul 'Chalky' White

0:06:460:06:47

-and I'm going to tell you how to survive a lightning storm.

-OK.

0:06:470:06:51

Chalky's first tip is simple.

0:06:510:06:54

Follow his system of counting to work out

0:06:540:06:56

how near the lightning is to you.

0:06:560:06:59

When you see the lightning, you've got to start counting.

0:06:590:07:01

When you hear the thunder, stop.

0:07:010:07:03

If the time delay between seeing the lightning

0:07:030:07:06

and hearing the thunder is less than 30 seconds,

0:07:060:07:08

that's the point you need to seek yourself good shelter.

0:07:080:07:12

If your count is under 30 seconds, that means the lightning

0:07:120:07:16

is less than six miles away.

0:07:160:07:18

So at this point it's time to take cover.

0:07:180:07:21

But it shouldn't just be anywhere. Right, Chalky?

0:07:210:07:25

If you're in open ground you need to stay away from pylons,

0:07:250:07:27

metal fences and water.

0:07:270:07:30

Metal and water both conduct electricity

0:07:300:07:33

so they're definitely out. There's also another big no-no.

0:07:330:07:38

Whatever you do, don't take shelter under tall trees.

0:07:380:07:41

The lightning will strike the tree

0:07:410:07:43

and the sap is instantaneously vaporised, so the tree can explode.

0:07:430:07:47

EXPLOSION

0:07:470:07:48

An exploding tree? Definitely not a good place to be stood.

0:07:480:07:51

So where should we head when lightning strikes?

0:07:510:07:54

The safest place to go is into a building.

0:07:540:07:57

Once in the building, be sure the TV's turned off

0:07:570:08:00

and stay away from the electrical sockets in that building.

0:08:000:08:03

So there you go. Head indoors and don't watch TV.

0:08:030:08:07

That might sound a bit boring.

0:08:070:08:08

Still, it's much better than being hit by lightning.

0:08:080:08:12

And that's how you survive a lightning storm.

0:08:120:08:14

Thanks for that, Chalky. I feel safer already.

0:08:160:08:19

OK, let the journey of epicness continue. Do you like science,

0:08:190:08:23

goo and dancing? I do. So does this girl. I'm very intrigued.

0:08:230:08:27

Hi, I'm Fran Scott and I'm going to show you how to make some super-goo

0:08:280:08:33

and a gooey dancing monster.

0:08:330:08:35

Fran is a cool science demonstrator.

0:08:350:08:38

And she knows it all when it comes to dancing goo.

0:08:380:08:41

-All you need is some cornflour, some water and a speaker.

-I knew that.

0:08:410:08:48

So take one big spoon of water.

0:08:480:08:51

And take about a spoon and a half full of cornflour.

0:08:530:08:58

OK, with you so far, science lady.

0:08:580:09:00

And then just mix it all up.

0:09:000:09:02

Now there will come a point where the substance starts

0:09:020:09:05

acting rather strange and it acts like a solid and a liquid.

0:09:050:09:09

-At this point, it's a non-Newtonian fluid.

-A non-Newtonian what-what?

0:09:090:09:14

A non-Newtonian fluid is a substance that can act like a solid

0:09:140:09:17

AND a liquid, depending on what you do to it.

0:09:170:09:21

With this one it changes from being a liquid to a solid

0:09:210:09:24

when we apply some force.

0:09:240:09:27

So I should be able to get a nice handful of this goo,

0:09:270:09:32

squash it together with force,

0:09:320:09:34

but if I stop applying force...

0:09:340:09:38

then it turns back into a liquid.

0:09:380:09:42

-Yuck.

-Yuck. That is pretty freaky, Fran.

0:09:420:09:45

But didn't you promise us a dancing goo monster?

0:09:450:09:48

Let's see how cool this goo can be by turning it into a dancing monster.

0:09:480:09:53

Yes!

0:09:530:09:55

Before we do this,

0:09:550:09:56

let's cover our speaker in clingfilm to make sure we don't damage it.

0:09:560:10:00

Remember, always ask your parent's permission

0:10:000:10:02

before you trash the stereo.

0:10:020:10:05

Now all we need to do is put some of our goo mixture on the speaker

0:10:050:10:10

and play some music.

0:10:100:10:12

Turn that music up, Fran.

0:10:130:10:15

DANCE MUSIC PLAYS

0:10:150:10:18

Whoa! What's happening there?

0:10:180:10:20

The vibrations from the speaker are making the goo move up and down

0:10:200:10:24

and form those ridiculous shapes

0:10:240:10:26

as it switches between being a solid and a liquid.

0:10:260:10:30

I'd never have guessed it. Goo loves a bit of dubstep.

0:10:320:10:35

-And that is our dancing monster.

-Goo-roovy! Ha-ha.

0:10:350:10:39

From one kind of monster to another but this one has eight legs

0:10:400:10:43

and freaks out a lot of people, including me.

0:10:430:10:47

So if you want to be an epic superhero

0:10:470:10:48

when one comes crawling your way, pay close attention.

0:10:480:10:52

We have a heavy-metal loving marine biologist to show you how.

0:10:530:10:57

-Hi, I'm Blowfish, expert biologist.

-A bit cocky.

0:10:570:11:00

I'm going to teach you how to get rid of a spider.

0:11:000:11:03

First, you'll need a glass or container big enough to cover

0:11:030:11:06

-the spider.

-Spider? That's obese! I'm not touching it.

0:11:060:11:10

Hopefully, you won't have to deal with a spider this big.

0:11:100:11:13

This is actually a Chilean rose tarantula.

0:11:130:11:16

Get a piece of card big enough to slide underneath the spider.

0:11:160:11:19

Or just leg it instead. I mean, look at the size of it!

0:11:190:11:23

Now be really careful when you're sliding the card under.

0:11:230:11:25

-You don't want to hurt the spider.

-Blowfish, you're so brave.

0:11:250:11:28

You're my hero.

0:11:280:11:30

Finally, keeping pressure on the container and the card,

0:11:300:11:32

pick up the spider, take him outside and release him back into the wild.

0:11:320:11:37

Or ask your parents to do it for you.

0:11:370:11:38

And that is how you get rid of a spider.

0:11:380:11:41

OK, time for one last dose of epicness.

0:11:430:11:45

But don't be sad, because we're about to enter

0:11:450:11:48

the colourful world of bhangra.

0:11:480:11:51

BHANGRA MUSIC PLAYS

0:11:510:11:54

Bhangra is one of the biggest forms of dancing in the world.

0:11:540:11:57

It's so big it's even been danced by music royalty Nicole Scherzinger.

0:11:570:12:01

# No, there is nothin' that can stop us... #

0:12:010:12:04

Don't you want to learn how to do it? Of course you do.

0:12:040:12:07

And we've got a top bhangra teacher to show you how.

0:12:090:12:11

Hi, I'm Dev, and I'm going to show you how to bhangra dance.

0:12:130:12:16

Get to it, Dev, you cheeky bhangra wizard.

0:12:160:12:19

Firstly I'd like you to get a good bhangra tune.

0:12:190:12:21

MUSIC: "Mundian To Bach Ke" by Panjabi MC

0:12:210:12:23

Panjabi MC, classic.

0:12:230:12:25

The first step I'm going to show you is called How To Change A Light Bulb.

0:12:250:12:28

Put your right hand in the air and change a light bulb.

0:12:280:12:31

Bend the knees and give yourself a bounce.

0:12:320:12:35

Then repeat that move with the other hand.

0:12:360:12:39

The second move we're going to do is called the Aeroplane.

0:12:390:12:42

Put your hands in the air, bend those knees

0:12:420:12:44

but this time you're going to imagine you're on an aeroplane and you're

0:12:440:12:47

squeezing the luggage into the overhead compartment like this.

0:12:470:12:50

Right, the third step is called the Butterfly.

0:12:530:12:55

Now, we're going to put our left hand in the air

0:12:550:12:57

and you'll be kicking out just like this.

0:12:570:13:01

The fourth and final move is called the bhangra bounce.

0:13:010:13:04

Put your hands in the air and let's bounce.

0:13:040:13:06

Let's leave Dev bouncing and I'll remind you of the moves.

0:13:080:13:12

One, change a light bulb whilst bouncing.

0:13:120:13:15

Two, put your luggage in the overhead compartment.

0:13:150:13:18

Three, do the butterfly.

0:13:180:13:20

Four, do the bhangra bounce. Epic!

0:13:200:13:25

-That's how you bhangra dance.

-Thanks, Dev. Give yourself a bounce.

0:13:250:13:29

Right, that brings us to the end of

0:13:300:13:33

15 minutes of total random epicness.

0:13:330:13:35

You should now be able to try this...

0:13:350:13:38

and this...

0:13:380:13:39

and even that.

0:13:390:13:41

Now, go forth and be epic at everything!

0:13:410:13:46

If you want to be really epic, then head on over to the CBBC website,

0:13:500:13:54

where you can watch all the videos again...

0:13:540:13:58

and again...and again.

0:13:580:14:00

So you can truly master your epicness.

0:14:000:14:04

Epic!
