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.

0:00:170:00:21

Welcome to your total random fix of epicness.

0:00:220:00:25

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

0:00:270:00:30

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

0:00:300:00:35

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

0:00:350:00:38

Perform an awesome trick.

0:00:380:00:39

Look super cool.

0:00:390:00:41

Repair a puncture.

0:00:410:00:42

Put an egg in a bottle.

0:00:420:00:44

Build a dry stone wall.

0:00:440:00:46

And this kid shows you how to be a gladiator.

0:00:460:00:49

Now, grab some sandwiches,

0:00:500:00:51

because we're going for a picnic on Mount Epic.

0:00:510:00:54

But first, get ready to bust some moves.

0:00:540:00:57

This is a helicopter.

0:00:590:01:01

It can be seen flying low and loud

0:01:010:01:03

with mighty propellers that can spin up to 500 times every minute.

0:01:030:01:07

Pretty epic.

0:01:070:01:09

This is a street dancer.

0:01:090:01:11

Can be seen jumping, spinning

0:01:110:01:14

and whatever that is.

0:01:140:01:15

Also very epic.

0:01:150:01:17

But what happens when you mix the two together?

0:01:180:01:21

You get the ultimate street dance move.

0:01:210:01:23

Hi, I'm Lizzie Gough, and I'm going to show you how to do the helicopter.

0:01:240:01:28

This is truly an epic move.

0:01:280:01:30

Yeah, that looks amazing. Show us the moves, Lizzie.

0:01:300:01:33

You're going to start with your knees bent.

0:01:330:01:36

-You want to be on the balls of your feet.

-Got it.

0:01:360:01:38

Now, you're going to transfer your weight onto the side

0:01:380:01:42

and take the opposite leg out.

0:01:420:01:44

Now you're going to make

0:01:440:01:45

a full rotation with this foot.

0:01:450:01:46

As you do that, you transfer your weight onto the other hand.

0:01:460:01:51

Like so.

0:01:510:01:52

Easy for you to say!

0:01:520:01:53

You want to jump this leg

0:01:540:01:56

over the top of the other leg.

0:01:560:01:58

You've got to be kidding!

0:01:580:02:00

Then your leg rotates all the way around to make a full circle.

0:02:000:02:04

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Just a minute, dancing lady. Let's rewind.

0:02:040:02:08

Rest on the balls of your feet.

0:02:080:02:10

Stick your leg out and support yourself with the opposite arm.

0:02:100:02:13

Swing your leg in a circle,

0:02:130:02:15

transferring your weight to the other arm.

0:02:150:02:17

Now, hop over your stuck-out leg to complete the rotation.

0:02:170:02:21

Then practise, a lot.

0:02:210:02:23

So, once you've mastered that, you can do it a little faster

0:02:230:02:26

and it looks a bit like this...

0:02:260:02:27

And that's how you do an epic helicopter.

0:02:330:02:36

Thanks, Lizzie.

0:02:360:02:37

Make sure you don't take off.

0:02:370:02:39

So, now you're an epic dancer, school disco ready - wahey!

0:02:390:02:44

What are you going to wear?

0:02:440:02:46

Don't panic, this guy's got all the answers.

0:02:460:02:49

Cool people. What is their secret?

0:02:500:02:52

Well, judging by this lot, standing around looking moody is the key.

0:02:520:02:55

But just to make sure, we've got rap megastar Lethal Bizzle

0:02:550:02:59

to show you how to turn your geek into chic.

0:02:590:03:02

Yo, I'm Lethal Bizzle, and I'm a rapper

0:03:020:03:04

and I've also got my own clothing line.

0:03:040:03:06

And I'm going to teach you how to look cool.

0:03:060:03:08

I'm all ears, Mr Bizzle.

0:03:080:03:10

Looking cool is not about what you wear, but how you wear it.

0:03:100:03:13

Don't be afraid to be different.

0:03:130:03:15

Individuality is the key to a great style.

0:03:150:03:18

Cool. I don't dress like anyone else anyway.

0:03:180:03:20

Keep it simple.

0:03:200:03:22

You don't need the bling, the chains, and all that.

0:03:220:03:25

Jeans and a shirt, always cool.

0:03:250:03:27

Jeans on, bling off. Check!

0:03:270:03:29

It's all about standing out from the crowd.

0:03:290:03:31

Accessories can help with that.

0:03:310:03:33

Backpacks. Sunglasses. A snapback.

0:03:330:03:37

If you want to look really cool, obviously, turn it backwards.

0:03:370:03:42

Right, I'm feeling cooler already. Anything else?

0:03:420:03:45

If you feel cool on the inside you're going to look cool on the outside.

0:03:450:03:49

Always be yourself. If you're happy with how you look, then big up.

0:03:490:03:53

Thank you, Mr Bizzle, I feel good and I look good. Bye-bye!

0:03:530:03:57

Isn't he cool? Do you know what else are cool?

0:03:580:04:01

Walls. And there's only one thing cooler than walls -

0:04:010:04:04

this farmer, who builds them.

0:04:040:04:06

Epic-ers, want to do a bit of manual labour

0:04:070:04:10

that's so extreme that it's just downright extreme?

0:04:100:04:13

There's 180,000 miles

0:04:130:04:14

of dry stone walling in Britain that needs rebuilding.

0:04:140:04:18

That's extreme.

0:04:180:04:19

So, we've got you a Welsh farmer on a hill to show you how to do it.

0:04:190:04:23

I'm Gareth Wyn Jones

0:04:240:04:26

and I'm going to show you how to build a dry stone wall.

0:04:260:04:29

Impressive rock formation.

0:04:290:04:31

This is a dry stone wall made by piling stones on top of each other.

0:04:310:04:36

Sounds easy enough.

0:04:360:04:38

-It's not as easy as it sounds.

-Ah.

0:04:380:04:40

And there are only a handful of people that know how to do it.

0:04:400:04:43

I'm in! G-Dog, let's get dry stone walling!

0:04:430:04:47

You start at the bottom and work your way up.

0:04:470:04:51

Got you, G-Unit. Go low.

0:04:510:04:53

There's no cement used here.

0:04:530:04:55

It's the way we lift them that makes them last hundreds of years.

0:04:550:04:59

Lift, huh?

0:04:590:05:00

When I say lift, I mean lifting the wall.

0:05:000:05:04

10-4, take it high. What's next, G-Force?

0:05:040:05:07

You start wide at the bottom and work your way narrow to the top.

0:05:070:05:12

This is the same technique as they used in the Stone Age

0:05:120:05:15

and we use it today.

0:05:150:05:17

Kick it prehistoric. Are we done? Oh...

0:05:170:05:20

This is like a big jigsaw.

0:05:200:05:23

You need to make sure that all the pieces interlock.

0:05:230:05:27

Locking and popping - got it, G-Down.

0:05:270:05:30

This technique is handed down from generation to generation.

0:05:300:05:33

My father taught me and I'm teaching my son now.

0:05:330:05:37

Got it, Dad. Ahem! I mean, G-Dad.

0:05:370:05:40

Last, but not least,

0:05:400:05:42

you need to be very strong but very careful.

0:05:420:05:46

OK, G-Boss, safety first.

0:05:460:05:48

And that's how you build a dry stone wall.

0:05:480:05:52

G-Man, you're my hero.

0:05:520:05:53

If you're hyped and up for a bucket-load more epicness

0:05:550:05:58

then look no further - there's this lot coming your way.

0:05:580:06:01

Our own King of Uselessness shows you how to do this.

0:06:010:06:04

You learn how to do that.

0:06:040:06:07

And fix this.

0:06:070:06:08

But first, fancy being a gladiator?

0:06:080:06:11

Well, this kid will show you how.

0:06:110:06:13

Gladiators - the celebs of ancient Rome.

0:06:150:06:18

They were pretty epic, but how could you become one?

0:06:180:06:21

Think you don't need to know? Well, picture the scene...

0:06:210:06:25

You're on holiday in Ancient Rome

0:06:260:06:28

and the family decide to go to the Colosseum for a bit of death.

0:06:280:06:32

As you walk in, a Roman guard hands you a dagger and a shield.

0:06:320:06:35

Souvenirs!

0:06:350:06:37

Except they're not souvenirs.

0:06:370:06:39

It's fight time and you're doing the fighting.

0:06:390:06:42

Looks like you need some gladiator skills, and fast.

0:06:420:06:45

So, how do you become a gladiator?

0:06:450:06:48

To tell you everything you need to know

0:06:480:06:50

about how to survive the dreaded Colosseum,

0:06:500:06:53

we've got top actor and history fan, Stephen Graham.

0:06:530:06:57

He'll GLADly talk you through the facts. I thank you.

0:06:570:07:00

So, you're going to be a gladiator?

0:07:010:07:04

Firstly, gladiators were either prisoners or slaves.

0:07:050:07:09

-Get in there! Grr.

-HE WHIMPERS

0:07:090:07:11

If you was a gladiator and you didn't fancy dying, then you had to be fit.

0:07:110:07:16

You could practise by fighting on a man made of straw.

0:07:160:07:19

Grr! HA! HA! HA!

0:07:190:07:22

HE YAWNS

0:07:220:07:25

-POW!

-Oof!

0:07:250:07:27

If you didn't fight well enough, your trainer would whip you.

0:07:270:07:31

Come here, boy!

0:07:310:07:32

-Bit harsh!

-WHIP CRACKS

0:07:320:07:34

Once you were fully trained and kitted up,

0:07:340:07:36

it was finally time to get out there and fight.

0:07:360:07:39

Bring it on. Fight!

0:07:410:07:43

Oh... Looks like we've lost. What now, Stephen?

0:07:460:07:50

You begged for mercy by putting your hand in the air.

0:07:500:07:52

The Emperor would then turn to the crowd, who would determine your fate.

0:07:520:07:57

Do they accept bribes?

0:07:570:08:00

The crowds would either shout "Lugula"...

0:08:000:08:03

-ALL:

-Lugula! Lugula! Lugula!

0:08:030:08:06

..which means "kill him!"

0:08:060:08:08

Eh?

0:08:080:08:10

What you would want to hear was "Mitte!" Which means "Let him go."

0:08:100:08:17

-ALL:

-Mitte! Mitte! Mitte!

0:08:170:08:20

Yes, you've done it. Freedom!

0:08:200:08:22

Woo-hoo! Wahey!

0:08:220:08:25

Grrr!

0:08:250:08:27

Unfortunately, "Mitte" didn't mean that you could actually go.

0:08:270:08:32

It just meant that you was allowed to fight another day.

0:08:320:08:35

Of course. Great(!)

0:08:350:08:38

Aaaagh!

0:08:380:08:40

And that is how to be a gladiator.

0:08:400:08:45

Thanks, Stephen. I'm off to cancel my holiday to Italy. See ya!

0:08:450:08:49

Gladiators didn't ride bikes, but if they did,

0:08:490:08:52

they would need to listen up

0:08:520:08:53

cos this guy's going to show you a must-have piece of know-how.

0:08:530:08:57

I'm Aaron Stannage and this is how to fix a bike puncture.

0:08:570:09:00

Aaron is a champion wheelier, so he WHEELIE knows his stuff.

0:09:000:09:05

First, turn your bike upside down and take the punctured wheel off.

0:09:050:09:09

Makes sense. What's next?

0:09:090:09:11

You need to take your tyre off and pull the punctured inner tube out.

0:09:110:09:15

Inner tube out - check. But how do I know where the hole is?

0:09:150:09:18

When you dip it in water, you're going to find the bubbles,

0:09:180:09:20

and the air will be escaping from where the hole is.

0:09:200:09:23

Bubble equals hole - genius!

0:09:230:09:25

You're going to mark the punctured area with chalk.

0:09:250:09:27

You're going to sand it down to make it rough.

0:09:270:09:29

Apply a patch from the puncture repair kit to seal the hole.

0:09:290:09:32

Fix a puncture with a puncture repair kit.

0:09:320:09:34

Sounds crazy, but it might just work!

0:09:340:09:37

Put the tube back in the tyre, inflate, and ride.

0:09:370:09:40

And that is how you fix a puncture.

0:09:400:09:42

Easy. Thanks, Aaron.

0:09:420:09:45

Pretty useful stuff, right?

0:09:450:09:46

Well, if knowledge is your aim and doing cool stuff is your game,

0:09:460:09:49

then there is only one name you need - Max.

0:09:490:09:53

He's the Prince of Pointlessness, the Emperor of the Absurd,

0:09:530:09:56

the Saint of Silliness.

0:09:560:09:58

He's Max Byrne and he's always got a trick

0:09:580:10:00

that's totally useless but brilliant.

0:10:000:10:03

Ragh!

0:10:030:10:05

And this time, you'll need an egg...

0:10:050:10:08

and a bottle.

0:10:080:10:10

Namaste. I'm Max Byrne. Tsss!

0:10:100:10:13

And I'm going to show you how to get this egg into this bottle.

0:10:130:10:17

Why?

0:10:170:10:18

Your mother has sent you to school with a hard-boiled egg in your bag.

0:10:180:10:21

Could happen.

0:10:210:10:23

But she hasn't given you anything safe to put it into.

0:10:230:10:25

Typical!

0:10:250:10:26

Apart from a bottle.

0:10:260:10:27

That has actually happened to me.

0:10:270:10:29

But it doesn't fit into the bottle. It doesn't fit! What do you do?

0:10:290:10:33

Now, you're going to need an adult for this.

0:10:330:10:35

Safety first, guys.

0:10:350:10:36

You light this match, you drop it into the bottle.

0:10:360:10:39

You place your egg on top of the bottle.

0:10:390:10:42

What happens next is awesome.

0:10:420:10:44

That match is burning up all the oxygen inside the bottle.

0:10:460:10:50

Now, in theory, that should create a vacuum

0:10:500:10:53

strong enough to suck the egg into the bottle.

0:10:530:10:56

Come on, egg!

0:10:570:10:59

SQUELCH!

0:10:590:11:00

And that's how you get an egg into a bottle. Nearly.

0:11:020:11:07

Well, you should never put all your eggs in one bottle anyway.

0:11:070:11:10

Well, half of it, anyway.

0:11:100:11:12

Oh, Max!

0:11:120:11:13

Right, guys, it's time for one last stop on the train line of epirrific.

0:11:150:11:19

Get your mates round, quick -

0:11:190:11:20

you're about to become the master of this magic trick.

0:11:200:11:25

Magicians are magic. Obviously.

0:11:250:11:29

They do really cool stuff, like throwing up cards.

0:11:290:11:33

So, now you want to be a magician, right? Of course you do.

0:11:330:11:38

Well, here's epic magic man Fergus Flanagan, to show a trick

0:11:380:11:41

that will amaze your audience and leave your friends flabbergasted.

0:11:410:11:45

Hi, I'm Fergus Flanagan and I'm here to teach you guys at home

0:11:480:11:52

how to make one solid pass through another solid.

0:11:520:11:54

No way!

0:11:540:11:55

I'm going to start off by wrapping the tinfoil around the plastic cup

0:11:550:12:00

so it looks like that.

0:12:000:12:01

Now I'm going to place the cup over the coin.

0:12:010:12:05

On the count of three,

0:12:050:12:06

that coin is going to pass straight through the table.

0:12:060:12:09

Are you ready?

0:12:090:12:10

Three...

0:12:100:12:12

two...

0:12:120:12:14

one.

0:12:140:12:15

Erm, non-epic.

0:12:150:12:17

That one didn't seem to work.

0:12:170:12:18

I tell you what, we'll try it again.

0:12:180:12:20

Instead of the coin going through the table,

0:12:200:12:23

why don't we make the cup go through? Ready?

0:12:230:12:27

Whoa!

0:12:270:12:29

And that is how you pass a cup straight through a solid table.

0:12:300:12:33

Now, how did you do it? Come on, spill the beans.

0:12:330:12:36

So the first part of this trick is to wrap

0:12:360:12:38

a piece of tinfoil around the plastic cup.

0:12:380:12:41

So take your cup and place it over the coin.

0:12:410:12:44

Now, when you lift the cup, obviously the coin hasn't gone through.

0:12:440:12:48

Now, this is where the secret move happens.

0:12:480:12:51

You're going to drop the cup out of the tinfoil onto your lap.

0:12:510:12:56

And I bet you didn't even see it's gone.

0:12:560:12:58

Unless you can slow it down and see it from multiple angles.

0:12:580:13:02

Epically sneaky.

0:13:020:13:04

This time, you say, "We're going to take it one step further."

0:13:040:13:07

So, you say, instead of the coin, you're going

0:13:070:13:10

to pass the cup through the table.

0:13:100:13:12

Which is obviously much more difficult.

0:13:120:13:14

Three, two, one...

And then you can show that you've impossibly made a cup

0:13:170:13:21

pass through a solid object.

0:13:210:13:24

Right, to amaze your mates you need to wrap your cup in tinfoil

0:13:240:13:27

and claim you're going to make a coin disappear through a table.

0:13:270:13:31

Fail on purpose, then sneakily drop the cup on your knee.

0:13:310:13:35

Then claim you're going to make the cup pass through the table instead

0:13:350:13:38

and slam the foil flat. Boom!

0:13:380:13:40

Your mates are going to think you've done real magic.

0:13:400:13:43

Beat that, Harry Potter.

0:13:430:13:45

Now, go and practise and have fun fooling your friends.

0:13:450:13:49

Thanks, Fergus.

0:13:490:13:50

Right, that brings us to the end

0:13:530:13:56

of 15 minutes of total random epicness.

0:13:560:13:58

You should now be able to try this...

0:13:580:14:01

and this.

0:14:010:14:02

That...

0:14:020:14:03

and that.

0:14:030:14:04

This...

0:14:040:14:06

this...

0:14:060:14:07

and even that.

0:14:070:14:08

Now, go forth and be epic at everything.
