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,

0:00:220:00:24

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

0:00:240:00:28

Welcome to your total, random fix of epicness.

0:00:300:00:34

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

0:00:360:00:39

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

0:00:390:00:44

In just 15 minutes, you will know how to

0:00:450:00:47

throw a javelin,

0:00:470:00:49

make sweeties,

0:00:490:00:50

roll a coin,

0:00:500:00:52

cure hiccups, save your pennies

0:00:520:00:55

and this kid shows you how to mummify someone.

0:00:550:00:58

But before all that,

0:00:580:00:59

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

0:00:590:01:03

If you have three mates and aren't afraid of heights, then watch this.

0:01:030:01:07

Cheerleading is epic.

0:01:080:01:10

There are cheerleading competitions, sports events

0:01:100:01:13

and you've probably seen it in the movies.

0:01:130:01:15

But it's not all pom-poms and chanting, nuh-uh,

0:01:150:01:17

there are epic stunts to check out, too.

0:01:170:01:20

Just like the one these four cheerleaders are going to show you.

0:01:200:01:24

Hi, we're UA Manchester Cheer

0:01:240:01:25

-and we're going to show you how to do a double-base thigh stand.

-A what?!

0:01:250:01:30

Oh, OK, double-base thigh stand, that looks impressive.

0:01:300:01:34

First you need to get three friends together.

0:01:340:01:36

Two of which will be the side bases.

0:01:370:01:39

They're going to create a platform for the flyer,

0:01:390:01:41

who goes up in the air performing the stunt and the back spot, who

0:01:410:01:44

stands behind the flyer, protecting the head, neck and shoulders.

0:01:440:01:47

The two bases are going to take a nice deep lunge, overlapping their

0:01:470:01:51

feet, making sure they create a nice platform for their flyer to step on.

0:01:510:01:55

The flyer's going to place her right foot into the pocket of

0:01:550:01:57

one of the bases. The pocket is where the hip meets the leg.

0:01:570:02:00

It's where you keep your change, silly!

0:02:000:02:02

Be careful, if you put your foot in the wrong spot,

0:02:020:02:04

it could be a bit painful.

0:02:040:02:06

The flyer is going to step up strongly onto her right foot,

0:02:060:02:08

locking out her leg.

0:02:080:02:09

She will then place her other foot into the pocket of the other base.

0:02:090:02:13

The bases hug tightly around the leg

0:02:130:02:15

and the back spot holds on at the flyer's waist.

0:02:150:02:17

Hope you've got a good grip!

0:02:170:02:19

To top it all off, the flyer's going to put her arms up in a V.

0:02:190:02:23

The side bases will then do the same.

0:02:230:02:25

And there you have it, a double-base thigh stand.

0:02:250:02:28

And that's how you do an epic cheerleading stunt.

0:02:280:02:30

Right, that's our first hit of epicness done and dusted.

0:02:320:02:35

But don't worry, our journey continues.

0:02:350:02:37

Now, here's a little tip for that annoying thing you

0:02:370:02:40

get from time to time.

0:02:400:02:41

I'm talking about hiccups, not your younger brother!

0:02:410:02:44

To save you from this noisy nightmare,

0:02:450:02:47

we have Dr Chris Van Tulleken to show you how.

0:02:470:02:51

I'm Dr Chris and I'm going to tell you how to get rid of hiccups.

0:02:520:02:55

-Hurrah!

-Hiccups occur when a muscle between your chest

0:02:550:02:58

and your abdomen called your diaphragm goes into spasm

0:02:580:03:02

and causes the sound at the top of the windpipe.

0:03:020:03:04

-It's catching!

-Hiccups are a bit like the opposite of a burp.

0:03:040:03:08

Burp!

0:03:080:03:09

-Rude.

-Hiccups are not serious, they usually only last a few minutes

0:03:090:03:12

and everyone gets them from time to time.

0:03:120:03:15

Here are a few things you can try which may help you stop your hiccups.

0:03:150:03:19

Drink water from the far side of the glass.

0:03:190:03:21

Surely, there is something easier than that.

0:03:220:03:25

-Not that!

-You can bite on a lemon.

0:03:250:03:27

Put some pressure on your nose while swallowing.

0:03:290:03:32

Or try some good old-fashioned gargling.

0:03:330:03:36

Truth is, hiccups only last a short while, so if you did nothing,

0:03:390:03:43

you'd look a bit less silly.

0:03:430:03:44

Try having a nap, when you wake up, they'll be gone.

0:03:440:03:47

There you have it, how to get rid of hiccups.

0:03:470:03:50

On we go.

0:03:510:03:52

If you thought that was good,

0:03:520:03:53

this next one will send your epicometer off the scale.

0:03:530:03:57

Here's a cool coin trick that will totally wow your mates!

0:03:570:04:00

My name is Ben Hanlin, I'm a magician and this is how to roll a coin.

0:04:010:04:06

A-ha! The high speed coin roll, bring it on.

0:04:060:04:09

First of all, take the coin and place it between your thumb

0:04:090:04:12

and your index finger, like so.

0:04:120:04:14

Then tilt your hand about 30 or 40 degrees.

0:04:140:04:17

This will allow gravity to pull the coin downwards, like that.

0:04:170:04:20

Now, as it falls onto the next finger,

0:04:200:04:22

move your middle finger downwards and your index finger upwards.

0:04:220:04:25

Then when it hits your ring finger, do exactly the same.

0:04:270:04:29

That goes down and your middle finger goes up.

0:04:290:04:32

Then when it reaches your last finger,

0:04:320:04:34

-let it fall into your other hand.

-One finger down, one finger up.

0:04:340:04:38

OK, Magic Boy, I think we've just about got that. What next?

0:04:380:04:41

To be extra cool, when it gets to the bottom, reverse the steps

0:04:410:04:44

so it comes back up, like that.

0:04:440:04:47

Stick it all together and this is what you've got.

0:04:490:04:51

And that's how to do a coin roll.

0:04:520:04:55

Nice one.

0:04:550:04:56

Feeling epic? We've only just started.

0:04:570:05:00

There's still all this to come.

0:05:000:05:02

This guy tells you how to spend your cash wisely.

0:05:020:05:05

No biggie, it's because I care.

0:05:050:05:07

This Olympian shows you how to chuck one of these bad boys.

0:05:070:05:10

And this dude shows you how to make your own sweeties.

0:05:120:05:15

Bish, bash, bosh, done.

0:05:150:05:17

But first, if you find yourself in the unlikely event that you

0:05:170:05:20

have to mummify something, then this kid can help you out.

0:05:200:05:25

Mummification is pretty epic stuff.

0:05:290:05:31

The ancient Egyptians believed that if your spirit was to

0:05:310:05:34

survive in the afterlife, your body needed to be preserved forever.

0:05:340:05:38

That's why they came up with the idea of mummifying

0:05:380:05:40

people once they die,

0:05:400:05:42

a ritual they carried out for 3,000 years.

0:05:420:05:45

It was ages ago when it last happened,

0:05:450:05:47

but just imagine if you had to do it.

0:05:470:05:50

Think that's unlikely? Well, picture the scene.

0:05:500:05:53

You're walking down the street on your way to school

0:05:540:05:57

-and you hear a phone ringing.

-Ooh.

0:05:570:05:59

You go to answer it, but instead of a phone box,

0:05:590:06:01

you've actually stepped into a time machine

0:06:010:06:03

and are transported to an ancient Egyptian burial ceremony.

0:06:030:06:07

Guess what? You're in charge! No need to worry, though.

0:06:080:06:13

To fill us in on this slightly gruesome process,

0:06:130:06:16

we've dug up a man who's an expert on ancient Egypt.

0:06:160:06:19

Take it away, Aidan.

0:06:190:06:21

HE SHUDDERS

0:06:210:06:22

First stage was to wash the body

0:06:220:06:24

and then make a cut in the side of the tummy.

0:06:240:06:26

And they took out the stomach, the liver, the lungs and the intestines.

0:06:280:06:32

Really? Oh, anyone else feeling a little bit sick?

0:06:330:06:37

Surely it can't get any worse than that!

0:06:370:06:39

-Then it was time to take the brain out.

-Oh, hang on, it just got worse!

0:06:390:06:44

They put a chisel up the nostril, tapped

0:06:440:06:47

and broke through between the nose and the brain case.

0:06:470:06:50

Oooh, that's got to hurt! Well, it would if they were still alive.

0:06:500:06:54

They'd then put a piece of bent wire up the nose,

0:06:550:06:58

wiggled it around a bit to break up the brain.

0:06:580:07:01

Brilliant, of course they did.

0:07:010:07:04

They then left the brain to trickle out the nostrils into a bowl,

0:07:040:07:08

bit like a bowl of brain porridge.

0:07:080:07:10

Brain porridge?

0:07:100:07:11

Think I'll stick to cornflakes, thank you very much.

0:07:130:07:16

After drying out the body by putting salt on it,

0:07:160:07:18

it was then time for that all-important linen.

0:07:180:07:21

The Egyptians started off wrapping the individual fingers

0:07:210:07:24

and toes in linen, but gradually more and more layers were added.

0:07:240:07:28

Eventually, a fully wrapped mummy would look

0:07:280:07:31

just like a cylinder of linen with a head on top of it.

0:07:310:07:35

Lovely, that's your classic mummy look, right there.

0:07:350:07:38

To be honest, though, I'm still thinking of the brain porridge.

0:07:380:07:41

-Nice.

-And that was how to mummify someone.

0:07:410:07:45

Thanks, Aidan. That was truly epic.

0:07:450:07:48

So on to the next and I've got a question for you -

0:07:480:07:51

do you like javelins? Do you like Olympians?

0:07:510:07:54

Do you want to throw a javelin like an Olympian? Then listen up.

0:07:540:07:58

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

0:08:000:08:03

and here's how to throw a javelin.

0:08:030:08:05

Katarina Johnson-Thompson is a legend in waiting.

0:08:050:08:09

She competed alongside Jessica Ennis in the Olympic heptathlon

0:08:090:08:12

and has been tipped for glory in Rio in 2016.

0:08:120:08:16

When it comes to throwing a javelin like a pro,

0:08:180:08:22

there is no one better to learn the basics from.

0:08:220:08:24

Before starting, ensure you've limbered up your arms.

0:08:260:08:28

I like to stretch with the javelin like this.

0:08:280:08:31

OK, Katarina, whenever you've finished warming up,

0:08:330:08:36

why don't you tell us how we should grip our javelin.

0:08:360:08:38

I throw it with my right hand, which is my writing hand.

0:08:400:08:42

I would grip the banding with my thumb at the top of the groove.

0:08:420:08:45

Nice one, Katarina, keep it groovy for the perfect hold.

0:08:450:08:49

Right, before we think about running and throwing,

0:08:490:08:51

let's kick off with a few standing throws.

0:08:510:08:53

Tell us more, Javelin Lady.

0:08:530:08:55

To get into a good javelin position,

0:08:560:08:58

you're going to draw your arm back with a straight arm, javelin above

0:08:580:09:01

your shoulder, throw through the point so the javelin stays straight.

0:09:010:09:05

Got that? OK, let's take it up a gear by adding a simple three step

0:09:050:09:09

run into the mix.

0:09:090:09:11

When you've mastered the standing throw, progress to three steps

0:09:110:09:13

because that will give it more distance.

0:09:130:09:15

I like to get my rhythm by counting to three, just like this.

0:09:150:09:19

One, two-three.

0:09:190:09:21

It all looks pretty easy when Katarina does it,

0:09:210:09:24

but once you got that mastered, it's time to do things Olympic style.

0:09:240:09:27

Finally, you progress to seven steps, which is what I did at the Olympics,

0:09:270:09:32

and your javelin throwing should look like this.

0:09:320:09:35

Oh, is it a bird? Is it a plane?

0:09:360:09:40

Nope, it's Katarina's mighty javelin. See how it soars.

0:09:400:09:45

And that was how to throw a javelin.

0:09:450:09:47

Thanks, Katarina. Right, do you like money?

0:09:480:09:51

Yes, stupid question, of course you do.

0:09:510:09:54

Here's an epic tip on how to get the most

0:09:540:09:55

out of your wonderful wonga!

0:09:550:09:57

Hi, guys, I'm Ricky

0:09:590:10:00

and I'm going to show you how to spend your pocket money wisely.

0:10:000:10:03

No biggie, it's because I care.

0:10:030:10:04

Now, the average amount of pocket money children in the UK get

0:10:040:10:07

per week is more than £5!

0:10:070:10:09

Woo-hoo! Loaded.

0:10:090:10:11

Quite a lot, isn't it? Well, not if you're spending without thinking.

0:10:120:10:15

So here are a few tips to make sure you can save while you're spending.

0:10:150:10:19

Always shop around.

0:10:190:10:20

Also, always make sure you check how much something is per 100ml or

0:10:200:10:23

per 100g. I'll give you an example.

0:10:230:10:26

It might be cheaper to buy an individual can of cola

0:10:260:10:29

than it is a multipack.

0:10:290:10:30

You see, at this well known supermarket, an individual can

0:10:300:10:33

would set you back 12.5p per 100ml, whereas the multipack is almost 18p.

0:10:330:10:37

OK, look at the little number, not the big number, got it.

0:10:380:10:41

And that's how you can be good with your money.

0:10:410:10:44

Thanks, Ricky, with your tips,

0:10:440:10:46

I'll be a millionaire by the end of the month. Probably not.

0:10:460:10:49

Right, time for one last dose of epicness and it's super sweet,

0:10:490:10:52

literally.

0:10:520:10:53

Sweets are epic. But they cost lovely money.

0:10:560:10:59

Wouldn't it be ace if you could make them at home? Well, you can.

0:10:590:11:02

We've got Junior Bake Off super chef, Aaron Craze,

0:11:020:11:04

to show you how to make your own gummy worms.

0:11:040:11:07

OK, now for this recipe, you're going to need..

0:11:070:11:09

-..or orange juice or whatever flavour you would like.

-Cola, please!

0:11:200:11:24

Right, now, let's make the gummy worms.

0:11:240:11:27

So this is gelatine, this is what makes the gummy.

0:11:270:11:31

Water goes into the gelatine. Pour enough in just to cover the gelatine.

0:11:310:11:36

Now, get your sugar and a pan and pour it in.

0:11:360:11:39

And then add the glucose.

0:11:430:11:44

Now, with a little bit of help from some more water.

0:11:450:11:48

All we need to do now is cook it. Uh-huh.

0:11:500:11:53

Obviously, get an adult to help here.

0:11:530:11:55

I don't want you burning yourself.

0:11:550:11:57

Now, we just want to warm it up, that's all we're doing. OK.

0:11:570:12:00

Bish, bash, bosh, done.

0:12:000:12:02

OK, now, we're going to put it all together.

0:12:050:12:08

So in with your cola, as I'm using.

0:12:080:12:11

Then the gelatine.

0:12:130:12:15

And then for the colouring. I'm using blue, cos I'm a Chelsea supporter.

0:12:160:12:22

Now, all we have to do is put the mixture into the dish.

0:12:230:12:26

Wow.

0:12:260:12:28

We need to put them into the fridge for an hour.

0:12:300:12:32

OK, an hour has passed, time to get your gummy worms out.

0:12:330:12:37

How do we know if they're ready? Hmm.

0:12:380:12:40

Yeah, they're ready. Let's go.

0:12:430:12:45

-Get one of these.

-A spatula.

-And start scraping away and releasing it.

0:12:460:12:53

Then you pop it on to your chopping board.

0:12:530:12:56

And then start cutting out your worms.

0:12:560:12:58

Again, get your adult back for this. No slicing your hands on my watch.

0:12:580:13:01

-We all know what a worm looks like, don't we? Long and wiggly.

-And blue.

0:13:010:13:05

Sprinkle some sugar. Beautiful. Your dentist is going to love this one.

0:13:070:13:12

Sugar's on. Now, we just have to pop 'em onto the plate.

0:13:120:13:16

And that, my dears, is how you make gummy worms. Oh, yeah!

0:13:180:13:23

Cheers, Aaron.

0:13:260:13:28

Right, that brings us to the end of 15 minutes of total,

0:13:280:13:30

random epicness.

0:13:300:13:32

You should now be able to try this.

0:13:320:13:33

And this.

0:13:350:13:36

And even that.

0:13:370:13:39

Now, go forth and be epic at everything!

0:13:390:13:42

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

0:13:470:13:50

website, where you can watch all the videos again and again and again.

0:13:500:13:57

So you can truly master your epicness.

0:13:570:13:59

Epi-i-i-i-c!
