Welcome to the world of Epic -

0:00:040:00:06

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

0:00:060:00:11

No matter what it is, this programme shows YOU how to do it -

0:00:110:00:15

so sit back, strap yourself in,

0:00:150:00:17

and get ready to become epic at everything!

0:00:170:00:22

Welcome to your total random fix of epic-ness.

0:00:220:00:26

We've got an amazing line-up

0:00:260:00:28

of experts, hotshots and all-round dudes

0:00:280:00:31

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

0:00:310:00:34

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

0:00:340:00:38

drive on two wheels,

0:00:380:00:40

sing like a pop star, play the spoons,

0:00:400:00:43

do this on one of those,

0:00:430:00:45

brew your own cola - and this kid shows you how to build a pyramid.

0:00:450:00:50

But before all of that, here's your first dose of epic-ness,

0:00:500:00:54

and brace yourselves - it's about to get messy.

0:00:540:00:56

This is a bubble - they make having a bath brilliant.

0:00:570:01:01

This is a volcano -

0:01:010:01:03

they erupt molten lava all over the place.

0:01:030:01:06

Want to know what happens when you mix the two together?

0:01:060:01:09

Of course you do.

0:01:090:01:10

Here's top science queen Fran Scott,

0:01:100:01:12

to show you how to make a bubble eruption.

0:01:120:01:14

Yep, you heard me - an eruption of bubbles.

0:01:140:01:17

Hit it, Fran.

0:01:170:01:19

To make a bubble eruption, you will need...

0:01:190:01:22

some hydrogen peroxide, which you can get

0:01:220:01:24

from your local chemist, some washing-up liquid,

0:01:240:01:26

some food colouring,

0:01:260:01:28

some yeast and an empty bottle.

0:01:280:01:31

Before you start, make sure you're wearing safety goggles...

0:01:310:01:33

-Goggles on!

-..and you've got an adult with you.

0:01:330:01:36

Dad!

0:01:360:01:38

Let's add half a bottle of hydrogen peroxide.

0:01:380:01:41

Then you need a good squirt of washing-up liquid,

0:01:410:01:43

and just so we can see the mess, let's add some food colouring.

0:01:430:01:47

And then, to make the mess... some yeast.

0:01:470:01:51

Whoa!

0:01:520:01:54

Whoa!

0:01:540:01:55

Nice one, Fran - that is epic!

0:01:570:01:59

I'll definitely do that at home! But can we make it even more epic?

0:01:590:02:03

Now, that was a pretty good bubbly eruption.

0:02:040:02:07

But I want to make a proper mess.

0:02:070:02:09

And for that, I need some hardcore science stuff.

0:02:090:02:12

So, here, we've got just about the same stuff as before.

0:02:160:02:18

We've got hydrogen peroxide - this time it's a lot stronger,

0:02:180:02:22

and definitely not stuff you should be playing with.

0:02:220:02:25

So, I'm going to add hydrogen peroxide.

0:02:250:02:27

Then we've got our washing-up liquid, some food colouring -

0:02:270:02:32

going to put a different colour in each one.

0:02:320:02:34

-Orange...

-Green in here.

-Oh.

0:02:340:02:37

-And...

-Cyan!

-..blue in here.

0:02:370:02:38

Oh, close enough.

0:02:380:02:40

Then add the potassium iodide.

0:02:400:02:42

It does the same job as yeast, but a lot faster -

0:02:420:02:46

so get ready for this.

0:02:460:02:48

I'm ready!

0:02:480:02:49

Oh, and stand back!

0:02:510:02:53

-Ha-ha!

-Whoa!

0:02:530:02:55

Let's see that again, but slower - therefore more dramatic.

0:02:550:02:59

So cool!

0:02:590:03:01

And THAT is how you make an epic bubble eruption.

0:03:030:03:07

It is indeed. Thanks, Fran.

0:03:070:03:10

That's one hit of epic-ness over and done with, but don't panic -

0:03:120:03:15

there's loads more where that came from.

0:03:150:03:17

And this next one is...wheelie good.

0:03:170:03:20

I thank you!

0:03:200:03:21

it's time to say see you later to your skateboard

0:03:220:03:25

and bye-bye to your BMX.

0:03:250:03:27

The only skills you need are the scootering kind,

0:03:270:03:29

and we've got scooter master Lewis Williams to show you a quick trick.

0:03:290:03:33

-I'm going to teach you how to do a barspin.

-Oh, I'm in!

0:03:330:03:36

-Firstly, you need to be able to jump on the scooter.

-Easy...

0:03:360:03:39

So, how do we do that?

0:03:390:03:41

Bend your arms and knees, and jump up - like this.

0:03:410:03:43

OK. Not so easy.

0:03:430:03:45

Once you've practised jumping on the scooter,

0:03:450:03:48

you can practise the barspin.

0:03:480:03:49

Get your bars and pass the bars round 360 degrees,

0:03:490:03:52

just like this...

0:03:520:03:54

-Got it.

-Once you're happy, you can put them both together -

0:03:540:03:57

just like this.

0:03:570:03:58

Cool moves!

0:04:010:04:03

Nice one, Lewis!

0:04:030:04:04

And that is how to be epic at a barspin.

0:04:040:04:07

A spin-tacular!

0:04:080:04:09

Bye-bye, Lewis!

0:04:090:04:11

Well, that looked like thirsty work. I bet he'd love a big glass of cola.

0:04:130:04:17

If you're watching, Lewis,

0:04:170:04:19

this man's going to show you how to make your very own.

0:04:190:04:22

Stefan Gates is the king of all things foodie.

0:04:230:04:26

He can make burgers out of worms - so cola is going to be a breeze.

0:04:260:04:30

Hello. I'm Stefan Gates, and I'm going to show you

0:04:300:04:33

how to make your own home-made fizzy cola.

0:04:330:04:36

-Take it away!

-You need...

0:04:360:04:37

Lime, a lemon and an orange.

0:04:400:04:43

Half a teaspoon of citric acid...

0:04:510:04:53

Last of all, 500ml of water.

0:04:570:04:59

Er, Granddad, where are your cinnamon sticks?

0:04:590:05:01

Everything goes in the bowl.

0:05:010:05:03

We're going to add water.

0:05:050:05:07

At this stage, it does look a bit like pond life,

0:05:090:05:12

but trust me on this one.

0:05:120:05:13

Next, put your pond water - I mean cola - into a pan.

0:05:130:05:17

Then get an adult, because you're going to be using the oven.

0:05:170:05:20

Simmer it for about 20 minutes, then leave it aside to cool.

0:05:200:05:23

And as it cools, all of those wonderful flavours -

0:05:230:05:26

the spices and the fruit -

0:05:260:05:27

should melt together into a delicious syrup.

0:05:270:05:30

I'm starting to think that buying it might be easier.

0:05:300:05:33

Once it's cooled and it's nice and syrupy, it's time to strain off

0:05:330:05:36

all the bits and bobs.

0:05:360:05:38

Yep - don't want those in my cola.

0:05:380:05:40

Now, that's our syrup.

0:05:400:05:42

Take one big old spoonful of it, and pour it into a glass full of ice.

0:05:420:05:46

Oh-ho, I can smell it from here!

0:05:460:05:48

-Now, time to get fizzy.

-Awesome!

0:05:480:05:50

Ooh, I'm getting thirsty now.

0:05:500:05:52

Add some fizzy water over the top.

0:05:520:05:54

Looks exactly like cola, doesn't it?

0:05:540:05:57

-Erm, nope.

-No, it doesn't.

0:05:570:05:59

But we still need to add our colouring.

0:05:590:06:02

Ho-ho-ho!

0:06:020:06:04

Give it a stir round.

0:06:040:06:05

That is gorgeous.

0:06:050:06:08

And THAT's how to be epic at making your own cola.

0:06:080:06:11

Thanks, Stefan! Ooh, nice umbrellas!

0:06:110:06:14

If you're already dizzy from this insane burst of everything epic,

0:06:140:06:17

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

0:06:170:06:20

Our resident king of uselessness shows off his spoon skills.

0:06:200:06:23

We get a pop star lesson from this girl.

0:06:230:06:26

And we find out how to do that.

0:06:260:06:29

But first, want to know how to build a pyramid?

0:06:290:06:32

Well, this kid will show you how.

0:06:320:06:33

Pyramids were first built 4,500 years ago,

0:06:350:06:38

as tombs for Egyptian pharaohs.

0:06:380:06:41

Up until around 100 years ago, the grand pyramid

0:06:410:06:43

was still the biggest building on the planet - epic!

0:06:430:06:47

They've not been built for thousands of years,

0:06:470:06:50

but what if you had to build one? You think it's unlikely?

0:06:500:06:53

Well, picture the scene.

0:06:530:06:55

You're at school and your teacher

0:06:550:06:56

decides to spring a history test on you.

0:06:560:06:58

The assignment...

0:06:580:07:01

..in ancient Egypt.

0:07:020:07:04

And your time starts...

0:07:040:07:06

-Uh?

-..now!

0:07:060:07:07

You need to learn how to kick it Egyptian-style, and quick,

0:07:070:07:10

or it's an F for you, my friend.

0:07:100:07:12

Agh!

0:07:120:07:13

Luckily for you, here's top actor and history aficionado

0:07:130:07:17

Stephen Graham to tell you how

0:07:170:07:18

to build one of the wonders of the world - good luck!

0:07:180:07:22

So...

0:07:220:07:23

you need to build a pyramid.

0:07:230:07:26

Exactly how the pyramids were built still remains a mystery.

0:07:260:07:29

But we do have some facts.

0:07:290:07:31

-Mmm- what are they?

-Mmm...

0:07:310:07:33

Up to 2,000 people worked on a pyramid each day.

0:07:330:07:38

That's a lot of people to boss around!

0:07:380:07:41

CROWD SHOUTS

0:07:410:07:42

And each pyramid took around... 20 years to build?

0:07:420:07:46

Looks like we're going to fail.

0:07:460:07:48

The Egyptians would have to move blocks of stone

0:07:480:07:51

which weighed up to 1 million kilograms.

0:07:510:07:55

Now, THAT is heavy.

0:07:550:07:57

MAN SHOUTS

0:07:570:07:58

After you'd transported the stone to the site,

0:07:580:08:01

you had to then carve it, and make it into the right shape,

0:08:010:08:05

so it could fit perfectly into the structure of the pyramid.

0:08:050:08:08

There was no power tools back then,

0:08:080:08:10

so everything had to be done with a mallet and a chisel.

0:08:100:08:13

I guess they had no safety gear, either. Better watch those fingers!

0:08:130:08:17

Ow! Agh!

0:08:170:08:19

The next stage was to actually add the stone to the pyramid.

0:08:190:08:22

Now, this was easy at the beginning,

0:08:220:08:24

but as the pyramid got bigger,

0:08:240:08:27

the workers would have had to make huge mud ramps

0:08:270:08:30

and drag the stones to the top of the pyramid.

0:08:300:08:33

Heave! Heave!

0:08:330:08:35

And then they'd all stand there and say, "Check out the guns!"

0:08:350:08:39

Once you'd done that, and you'd managed to get down safely,

0:08:390:08:43

you had to start all over again.

0:08:430:08:45

Hee-hee!

0:08:450:08:47

Oh!

0:08:470:08:48

-Well, come on!

-Ah, do we have to?!

0:08:480:08:51

OK! Thanks, Stephen!

0:08:510:08:53

So, onwards we go.

0:08:530:08:55

And it's goodbye pyramids, hello pop princess.

0:08:550:08:59

A*M*E* is a pop star. Do you want to be one?

0:09:000:09:03

Good news, because she's here to show you how to do it.

0:09:030:09:07

Hey. I'm A*M*E*. I'm a singer-songwriter,

0:09:070:09:10

and I'm going to teach YOU

0:09:100:09:11

-how to sing like a star.

-# Thanks! #

0:09:110:09:14

-Stand up straight.

-Yep.

-Take a deep breath.

0:09:140:09:16

HE BREATHES IN Relax, so that your breathing is steady.

0:09:160:09:19

-Can I breathe out yet...?!

-First up, you need to be able to sing in tune.

0:09:190:09:22

-OK. How?

-Now, match your voice to each scale as it is being played.

0:09:220:09:26

-HE CLEARS THROAT

-OK, I'm ready.

0:09:260:09:28

# La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la

0:09:280:09:32

# La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la

0:09:320:09:36

# La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la! #

0:09:360:09:39

-Nailed it!

-In order to get a great performance,

0:09:390:09:42

you need to be chilled-out. Make sure you pick a song you love.

0:09:420:09:44

My favourite song to sing is Need You (100 Percent).

0:09:440:09:47

-Sounds familiar.

-# I wanna be the one you call

0:09:470:09:50

# Every day and night

0:09:500:09:51

# Are you gonna be the one who's always gonna treat me right?

0:09:510:09:55

# And when we get together, turning down the lights

0:09:550:09:59

# Need you 100

0:09:590:10:01

# Need you 100 percent... #

0:10:010:10:03

I think that was 100% epic!

0:10:030:10:05

And THAT is how to be epic at singing like a star.

0:10:050:10:07

Thank you, A*M*E. # Where is my recording contract? #

0:10:070:10:11

So now you're ready to record a hit record,

0:10:110:10:13

but who are you going to have in your band?

0:10:130:10:15

How about this guy?

0:10:150:10:17

He's the prince of pointlessness, the emperor of the absurd,

0:10:170:10:21

the saint of silliness - he's Max Byrne,

0:10:210:10:24

and he's always got a trick that is totally useless but brilliant.

0:10:240:10:28

Whaa!

0:10:280:10:29

And for this, you're going to need some cutlery.

0:10:290:10:31

Ciao! My name is Max Byrne. Tsss!

0:10:310:10:35

I'm going to show you how to play the forks.

0:10:350:10:37

Only joking! It's the spoons.

0:10:370:10:40

I'm in.

0:10:400:10:41

This one I like to call Hi Ho. This one I like to call Silver.

0:10:410:10:45

# Hi Ho, Hi Ho... # And Silver.

0:10:450:10:47

Grab Silver, and place him on top of your index finger's knuckle.

0:10:470:10:51

Then get Hi Ho. Place him in-between your middle finger

0:10:510:10:55

and your index finger's knuckle. A simple beat is this one...

0:10:550:10:58

SPOONS CLICK One, two, three.

0:10:580:11:00

And then the steps... Play a bit of a song.

0:11:000:11:03

Paddy had a hat, it was on his head...

0:11:030:11:05

Top of the charts next week!

0:11:050:11:07

Paddy had a hat, it was OFF his head!

0:11:070:11:10

Is this available to download?

0:11:100:11:12

Paddy had no hat, it was... He went to bed!

0:11:120:11:14

Keep your eyes out, One D!

0:11:140:11:17

-SPOON CLICKS

-And time for the big finish...

0:11:170:11:20

-Oh.

-And that's how you play the spoons.

-Thanks, Max!

0:11:220:11:25

-Now I'm hungry.

-Grab a sandwich.

0:11:250:11:26

OK. There's time for just one last portion of epic pie,

0:11:260:11:30

and we're moving seamlessly from musical spoons

0:11:300:11:33

to driving like a loon!

0:11:330:11:35

It doesn't get more epic than driving.

0:11:360:11:38

You can do it at different speeds, go round in circles,

0:11:380:11:41

and even backwards - well, you guys can't,

0:11:410:11:44

not till you're 17 anyway. Soz, guys!

0:11:440:11:46

But if you COULD drive, would you want to drive on four wheels

0:11:460:11:49

or would you want to do this?

0:11:490:11:52

That's right, two-wheel driving - double epic!

0:11:520:11:56

To show you how, we've got top stunt driver Alastair Moffat.

0:11:560:12:00

Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

0:12:000:12:02

First thing you need to do is learn how to drive.

0:12:040:12:07

Turn it on, waggle the gearstick and hold the wheel? Got it - kind of.

0:12:070:12:10

Next - you can't do this in a normal car, you need a stunt car.

0:12:100:12:14

Normal cars are SO last year!

0:12:140:12:16

A stunt car is different, due to the fact that we've got

0:12:160:12:19

a stabiliser on the side, to stop it going too far.

0:12:190:12:21

A bit like my first bike!

0:12:210:12:23

Then all you need is a ramp, and you're ready to stunt-drive.

0:12:230:12:26

Yes!

0:12:260:12:27

ROCK MUSIC STARTS, THEN STOPS AGAIN But first you need to put on your safety gear.

0:12:270:12:30

Now rock!

0:12:300:12:32

ROCK MUSIC STARTS AGAIN

0:12:320:12:35

ENGINE STARTS

0:12:350:12:37

This is the coolest thing ever!

0:12:380:12:40

There we go. Car falls onto the dolly there.

Now we're going to flick the steering wheel to the right...

0:12:440:12:47

and there we go - dolly is off the ground now.

0:12:470:12:50

We're looking down the road. Lots of little steering wheel movements.

0:12:500:12:54

-A little bit of throttle...

-OK, this is truly epic!

0:12:540:12:57

Turn the steering wheel to the left, the car will go up,

0:12:570:13:00

and to the right, the car will come back down again.

0:13:000:13:02

Boom!

0:13:020:13:04

So, to drive a car on two wheels, you need to get yourself

0:13:040:13:07

a stunt car with a stabiliser,

0:13:070:13:10

put on some awesome rock music, drive it up a ramp,

0:13:100:13:13

give it a yank to get it off the dolly,

0:13:130:13:15

then turn it left or right to balance.

0:13:150:13:17

And definitely do not try this at home -

0:13:170:13:19

unless you want to get chucked in jail.

0:13:190:13:22

OK - let's look at it again...

0:13:220:13:24

And again...and again!

0:13:240:13:27

Epic!

0:13:270:13:29

Now, THAT's how you drive on two wheels.

0:13:310:13:33

Thanks, Alistair! Oh, off he goes there, into the sunset.

0:13:330:13:37

Careful now!

0:13:370:13:38

Right - that brings us to the end of

0:13:410:13:43

15 minutes of total random epic-ness.

0:13:430:13:46

You should now be able to try this and this...

0:13:460:13:50

that and that...

0:13:500:13:52

this, this...and even that.

0:13:520:13:56

Now, go forth, and be epic... at EVERYTHING!
