Just a little kick-flip there. Just curve it round the bowl.

:00:26.:00:36.
:00:36.:00:43.

That was high! Hup! Yeah, that is cool! This skate park has my seal of

:00:43.:00:48.

approval. Mine too. Why did I have to wear the

:00:49.:00:58.
:00:59.:01:31.

blonde wig? Get out! Get out! Let's you OK, Tim? I'm fine.

:01:31.:01:36.

Welcome to WILD! The show that is getting you off the sofa and active

:01:36.:01:41.

this summer. I'm Naomi Wilkinson.

:01:41.:01:47.

And I'm Justin Timberlake. Over the next hour we are broadcasting live

:01:47.:01:52.

from the English Riviera down here, Devon! We've been all over the

:01:52.:01:57.

place. We are getting around. Because we are in this urban

:01:57.:02:01.

location this week, we want to hear what urban sports you have been

:02:01.:02:06.

doing. Send us your comments to [email protected] We will try to read

:02:06.:02:12.

some of the comments out. We have brought along our hard-working,

:02:12.:02:19.

dedicated, crew... A happy bunch. But they are not a patch on our

:02:19.:02:24.

fantastic audience! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. And here

:02:24.:02:29.

comes Radzi. Hello! Well, I tell you what, I have

:02:29.:02:34.

been checking out what the skaters and the BMXors have been doing. They

:02:34.:02:39.

are off the charts. Very good. I would take notes. You may need them

:02:39.:02:45.

come this week's forfeit. Oh, no, it will involve wheels!

:02:45.:02:53.

Right let's welcome the special guests to the show. First up, a BMX

:02:53.:02:58.

flatland wizard, Mr Lee Musselwhite! We also have a free winning team

:02:58.:03:04.

here, say hello to Street Motion. They are showing us ways to go WILD!

:03:04.:03:10.

In the city. We have that and loads more! I have my heart in my mouth

:03:10.:03:17.

when I face one of my biggest world challenges to date.

:03:17.:03:24.

There is a sting in the tail for WILD! Things when they go on the

:03:24.:03:28.

overnight hunt. And we find out about the WILD! Life

:03:28.:03:34.

of an 11-year-old bee-keeper. That abseiling looked massive. Were

:03:34.:03:38.

you scared. A really tough challenge. Stay tuned

:03:38.:03:42.

to see what happened. Tim, what is the fastest animal in the world?

:03:42.:03:47.

Greyhound racing dog. It's not that. It is a bird of prey.

:03:47.:03:53.

Found here in the UK, increasing will in urban areas like this it is

:03:53.:04:00.

the powerful, the one, the only, the... Cheetah!No, it is a bird of

:04:00.:04:06.

prey. Pigeon? No, it's a peregrine falcon.

:04:06.:04:12.

You should should have said. Peregrine falcons have astonishing

:04:12.:04:19.

eyesight. Spot Spotting pigeons over five miles away. Reaching over 200

:04:19.:04:25.

miles an hour when they plunge from the sky to catch their prey mid-air.

:04:25.:04:31.

Once in their clushs, there is no way to escape. Peregrine falcons

:04:31.:04:36.

succeed in almost every environment. But they love our towns and cities.

:04:36.:04:42.

The nooks and the crannies of the tall buildings give them an

:04:43.:04:48.

eagle-eyed view of their hunting ground. Here we have a one-year-old

:04:48.:04:52.

peregrine falcon called Moses, looked after by Lloyd. Welcome to

:04:52.:04:57.

WILD! Lloyd. He is young but a top hunter? He has all of the skills

:04:58.:05:01.

necessary to do what they do brilliantly, that is to go really

:05:01.:05:05.

fast. Is he fully grown? Yes, by three

:05:05.:05:10.

months old they R but as the years go on, they get more experienced and

:05:10.:05:14.

stronger. You can tell that you love the

:05:14.:05:20.

peregrine falcons. What is it about them that is so special for you?

:05:20.:05:25.

They are amazing, the agility, the strength, the determination is

:05:25.:05:28.

inspiring. They are beautiful. I understand

:05:28.:05:35.

that the eyes take up half of their skull? The eyesight is eight times

:05:35.:05:39.

better than our own to see at extreme distances.

:05:39.:05:44.

So seeing miles away? A long way. That is how they hone in on the

:05:44.:05:49.

prey? They will see it, go out, get up high to do a dive to surprise the

:05:49.:05:53.

prey. And they just whack it with the

:05:53.:05:58.

incredible talons? Yes, they the hind talons here. They flick out the

:05:58.:06:02.

feet a second before to kill the prey on impact.

:06:02.:06:07.

They stun them in mid-air. Taking out the prey. They whack it and that

:06:07.:06:12.

kills it instantly, will it? Mostly, yes.

:06:12.:06:19.

Then they go down, bite into it, grab it and go off to feed it.

:06:19.:06:26.

Well, they are incredible fliers and we would love to see Moses flying.

:06:26.:06:31.

Can we see him? We are putting him here. He has sticky foot. He does

:06:31.:06:36.

not like to let go of me. Here he goes.

:06:36.:06:43.

Wow. Straight away sending him off. What is that? That is a lure with

:06:43.:06:47.

food attached. To him it is prey.

:06:47.:06:52.

He thinks this is pray. Talk me through the tactics that they use?

:06:52.:06:56.

He is looking over the shoulder. He is trying to get it from me it is a

:06:57.:07:01.

game. He loves this. What else do they eat other than

:07:01.:07:06.

pigeons? Any other bird up to a size of mallard.

:07:06.:07:10.

Wow, that size? You stand still, Naomi.

:07:10.:07:18.

OK. I will! Oh! He is so fast. I can feel the wind as he flies by. He

:07:18.:07:24.

looks spectacular. What a joy to watch. Can we bring him in? He is

:07:25.:07:32.

looking at it... Businessman! Wow! Thank you very much. He just wants

:07:32.:07:39.

to fly. This is live TV, he will do what he wants! Here he comes.

:07:39.:07:43.

A true acrobat of the skies. Thank you very much. What did you think of

:07:43.:07:49.

that? Naomi, how cool was that. I love peregrine falcons. What did you

:07:49.:07:56.

think? I love the speed. It is so fast, immense. His eyes. I can't

:07:56.:08:02.

believe he sees everything. He is very fast. Have you seen peregrine

:08:02.:08:07.

falcons in the wild? No but I have seen them at a bird show.

:08:07.:08:14.

It is not just peregrine falcons you can see in the urban areas but a

:08:14.:08:19.

whole array of wildlife. As ever, if you see something interesting, take

:08:19.:08:26.

a photo and send it in to the show. And if you have been doing WILD!

:08:27.:08:31.

Adventures, whatever it is, we would love to see your pictures. E-mail

:08:31.:08:36.

them in: With your name and your parent or guardian's phone number

:08:36.:08:44.

attached. We have photos? Yes. This is skp sky. She is tarp surf. This

:08:44.:08:49.

is the coolest thing is. I don't know any of these sports.

:08:49.:08:55.

Last week I did not know about knee boarding, but Ellie sent this in. So

:08:55.:09:04.

now I know. Just one comment it is from Sun Stone Smiley Bird. Who says

:09:04.:09:09.

they love BMXing, and extreme skating.

:09:09.:09:13.

Cool comment. So, we have seen an acrobat of the

:09:13.:09:18.

skooirs, now time to see somebody who does their tricks closer to the

:09:18.:09:23.

ground. The next guest can do things with a

:09:23.:09:28.

bike you never thought possible. Flatland champion, Lee Musselwhite.

:09:28.:09:34.

Lee has been pushing boundaries for 17 years, inventing countless moves

:09:34.:09:40.

and tricks. Flatland is a freestyle form of BMX

:09:41.:09:47.

riding. Moves include spinning, rolling and balancing on a wheel.

:09:47.:09:51.

Riders are judged on originality and style.

:09:51.:09:56.

Lee has been the UK champion twice and competed at the highest level

:09:56.:10:02.

all over the world. Regarded as one of the most creative and original

:10:02.:10:05.

riders around. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

:10:05.:10:12.

I tell you what, here he is in the flesh. Mr Lee Musselwhite! Tim, good

:10:12.:10:17.

to see you. Thanks for joining us. That looked

:10:17.:10:25.

epic in the video. How did you get into flatland BMX? I saw some guys

:10:25.:10:32.

doing tricks. Thought it looked cool. Gave it a go, just practised

:10:32.:10:36.

and kept practising. How long does it take to get to your

:10:37.:10:42.

level? I have been doing this for 17 years, I'm still learning.

:10:42.:10:48.

Is it is a sport that anyone can do? Anyone can learn it it is a case of

:10:48.:10:53.

practise it is so true. Your parents were not Russian ballet

:10:53.:10:59.

dancers, it is not in the genes? Nothing like that. Just practise.

:11:00.:11:08.

This bike is a little like a normal BMX but tell us about it? All of the

:11:08.:11:13.

tricks are for moment and speed. So there are no brakes. My bike has no

:11:13.:11:18.

chain on it. So I can't peddle it. I would look silly riding to the

:11:18.:11:22.

shops. You say riding to the shops is this

:11:22.:11:30.

a sport you can do anywhere? All you need is a hard surface. Along as you

:11:30.:11:35.

are away from people, cars. A secluded level. It is perfect.

:11:35.:11:39.

You are the British champion. We would love a demo.

:11:39.:11:43.

Who would love a demo from the British champion?

:11:43.:11:48.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Right, then, Lee. Go on. Stand back

:11:48.:11:54.

everyone. So no chain on there, he has to generate the speed from pure

:11:54.:11:57.

has to generate the speed from pure momentum.

:11:57.:12:03.

In a competition Lee would be judged on tricks, Vidality, style. He does

:12:03.:12:08.

not want to put the feet down. He would be marked down for that in a

:12:08.:12:18.

contest. Look how fast he is spinning! Nice!

:12:18.:12:23.

OK we got one more. OK a big finish. Here we go.

:12:23.:12:31.

He make it is look very easy. Opposite foot on there.

:12:31.:12:37.

A one-handed centre finish! Wow! A one-handed centre finish! Wow!

:12:38.:12:41.

Yes! That was absolutely amazing. Thank you very much.

:12:41.:12:45.

Well, WILD! Would not be WILD! Unless I didn't have a slice of the

:12:45.:12:51.

action. Can you teach me a trick. Safety first, let's get a mell met

:12:51.:12:54.

on you. Safety does not take a day off.

:12:54.:12:57.

I have a basic trick. That will help.

:12:57.:13:02.

Hold on to the handle bars in the position you are in. Step both feet

:13:02.:13:07.

on to the stunt pegs. Perfect. Then we are going to try to

:13:07.:13:13.

roll around in a circle. Mum! I'm going backwards! Take your

:13:13.:13:21.

hands off. There we go. Oh, yes! Excellent.Let go, Lee. I

:13:21.:13:26.

have this. Don't let go! I tell you what, that felt pretty difficult.

:13:26.:13:31.

Hold tight. Here we go. Take your hands off.

:13:31.:13:37.

How do that without getting dizzy? am used to it.

:13:37.:13:43.

The eyeballs are rolling around in the sockets. Amazing stuff. A big

:13:43.:13:46.

hand, ladies and gentlemen, to Lee Musselwhite. The British champion.

:13:46.:13:52.

As you know WILD! Is about encouraging you to get up, go

:13:52.:13:57.

outdoors and discover new adventures. A few weeks ago, my

:13:57.:14:03.

nerves were tested to the max when I did just that.

:14:03.:14:07.

Nine out of ten people in the UK live in a built up urban area, but

:14:07.:14:14.

being in a town or a city does not mean that there are not great

:14:14.:14:19.

adventures on your doorstep. As adventures go, they don't come

:14:19.:14:24.

bigger than the one I am off to try today. This is the National Lift

:14:24.:14:31.

Tower. In the heart of Northampton. LAUGHTER!

:14:31.:14:39.

Wow! At 127 metres high, it provide as bird's-eye view of the

:14:39.:14:46.

surrounding area. Later on today I'm stepping right off the top of it.

:14:46.:14:50.

I'm not absolutely crazy. I have come here to try my hand at

:14:50.:14:55.

abseiling. Kurt is here to guide me through the whole, terrifying,

:14:55.:14:58.

experience. When you think of abseiling, you

:14:58.:15:03.

think of mountain faces, cliffs, quarries, but you can clearly do it

:15:03.:15:08.

in towns and cities too? People come for the adrenaline so. This is the

:15:08.:15:12.

ideal place for abseiling down. The higher the better. We are doing it

:15:12.:15:16.

at 127 metres. That sounds terrifying.

:15:16.:15:23.

What we will do is a small simple abseil on the inside, a 30-metre

:15:23.:15:26.

abseil. That idea of small is different to

:15:26.:15:32.

mine! The tower is used as a testing areas for lifts and ladders. It is

:15:32.:15:38.

full of scary drops like this. That is the small one? ! Kurt checks

:15:38.:15:45.

the ropes and there is no turning back.

:15:45.:15:49.

Whenever you are ready, lean backwards... And just sit down?

:15:49.:15:53.

Yeah. There we go. Lovely. When you are

:15:53.:15:57.

ready, let the white ropes sloid through the hands and you start to

:15:57.:16:01.

go down. It is such a long way. If I looked

:16:01.:16:10.

down I would be sick. This one is only about a quarter as

:16:10.:16:17.

high as the one I'm going to do. Oops! And I'm down.

:16:18.:16:23.

Oh, my goodness. That was way more scary than I thought it was going to

:16:23.:16:29.

be. And that is the small one. So part of the task is done. Still a

:16:29.:16:36.

massive challenge to go. It's is trek to the top of the

:16:36.:16:43.

tower, as the crew are finding out. 700 steps in total, or you could

:16:43.:16:52.

just take the lift! While I wait for the others it is time to check out

:16:52.:17:00.

the view... Is that a good view? It is like from a plane. I don't know

:17:00.:17:04.

if I can do this. So that is the platform I'm going to be leaning

:17:04.:17:09.

back over into thin air at 127 metres up in the sky.

:17:09.:17:17.

Why am I doing this again? Why are we doing this? Any reason? The ropes

:17:17.:17:23.

are in place. The safety checks are complete. Now the question is, can I

:17:23.:17:28.

go over the edge? This is definitely feeling like one of the scariest

:17:28.:17:38.

things I have ever done. Here we go.

:17:38.:17:43.

I can't believe I'm doing this. It is telling me that I can do it, I am

:17:43.:17:50.

safe. Nothing will happen to me. Make sure that you enjoy it as well.

:17:50.:18:00.
:18:00.:18:00.

Looking good. OK so keep going like this, don't I?

:18:00.:18:07.

That's it. You're looking good. This is a joke. I can't believe I am

:18:07.:18:17.
:18:17.:18:23.

doing this. This is WILD! Isn't it? Totally WILD! I think that I'm a

:18:23.:18:33.
:18:33.:18:34.

quarter of the way down. I still have a long way to go.

:18:34.:18:41.

People still look like tiny dots. , but I can see for miles. It is a

:18:41.:18:47.

spectacular view. That is fabulous a across

:18:47.:18:51.

Northampton. I am feeling a little more comfortable with this. Now I

:18:51.:18:56.

have over the worst bit, the leaning back at the top. Aisle starting to

:18:56.:19:03.

get used to this. I feel like I'm in an action film or something. Tom

:19:03.:19:12.

Cruise, eat your heart out! Check me out, Northampton! I am WILD! Hello

:19:12.:19:18.

out there. I am giving myself serious Brownie points for this. I'm

:19:18.:19:22.

feeling really proud of myself. Everyone should try abseiling. I

:19:22.:19:28.

think it is pretty good to give yourself a scare every once in a

:19:28.:19:34.

while. You know what? The more I do this, the more I'm enjoying it. That

:19:34.:19:44.
:19:44.:19:52.

Take your time. Hello ground. Yes! I made it. I'm

:19:52.:19:57.

still alive. I've done some scary things in my time. That ranges as

:19:57.:20:02.

one of the scariest. That was brilliant. It does look like it is

:20:02.:20:08.

difficult to have an epic adventure in a town or a city, but this proves

:20:08.:20:12.

you can go out and get WILD! Anywhere. I have to ring the boys.

:20:13.:20:19.

Tell them that I have made it back safely. Whereas my phone? Oh, no!

:20:19.:20:26.

Dope! I have to say, could you see my house from up there? I think I

:20:26.:20:31.

could see everyone's in the whole of Britain.

:20:31.:20:35.

I'm impressed. Now it is time to turn our attention

:20:35.:20:39.

to the tiny creatures in the urban environment. They probably make your

:20:40.:20:43.

skin crawl. They definitely make Naomi feel uncomfortable, but when

:20:43.:20:51.

they are in the ring, they are a knock-out it is time for Battle of

:20:51.:20:57.

the Beasties. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

:20:57.:21:03.

Yes the audience are ramped for this one. Tim, Naomi, get into the ring

:21:03.:21:09.

and put your gowns on. I'll remind you of the rules. They have three

:21:09.:21:14.

rounds of fighting talk in which to convince me that their WILD!

:21:14.:21:19.

Contenders are worthy to make their way here into the internationally

:21:19.:21:23.

known enclosure along with the wasps, slug and the raft spider.

:21:23.:21:27.

Naomi, who are you bringing to the table this week.

:21:27.:21:34.

Let's get ready to rumble! I have the invincible cockroach.

:21:34.:21:41.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Tim, what about you? I'm bringing the

:21:41.:21:49.

impenetrable flea! It is time for round one.

:21:49.:21:55.

You want to know about... Chocolate. Come on, chockie.

:21:55.:22:04.

OK. The flea. It does not fly. It jumps. It jumps 150 times, its own

:22:04.:22:08.

body weight. So, out of every animal, it make it is the best

:22:08.:22:18.

jumper in the world, doing it 30,000 times in a row. Actually cockroaches

:22:18.:22:26.

can jump too. Cockroaches are about speed. Some cockroaches running 50

:22:26.:22:31.

times their body length in a second that is nine times faster than a

:22:31.:22:39.

human being. In my vote that makes them superathletes. I can't say

:22:39.:22:44.

anything? No, you can't. What is this, chocolate! Going back to the

:22:44.:22:50.

fle. Flea. When it accelerates, it does so 50 times faster than the

:22:50.:22:55.

space shuttle. That is a lot of Government force.

:22:55.:23:00.

Tim, I'll be honest, I did not think that the flea would feature much,

:23:00.:23:04.

but the flea has truched the cockroach to take the early lead.

:23:04.:23:09.

Now it is time to hear a cheer for that. Yes! Now it is time for round

:23:09.:23:18.

two. Make it is good one, Naomi. Tim. Look at this. Listen to my

:23:18.:23:23.

voice, tonight look at me sleep. Cockroaches have teeth in their

:23:23.:23:28.

stomachs, yes, teeth in the stomachs and they are not fussy eaters. They

:23:28.:23:35.

eat food, hair, paint, soap, you name it, they will eat it. Welcome

:23:35.:23:42.

to wildlife from lock Loch Lomond... Oh, fleas, they suck blood. They can

:23:42.:23:48.

do so for two-and-a-half hours. Consuming up to 15 times their own

:23:48.:23:55.

body weight. Sleep. I have another one, some specieses of cockroach can

:23:55.:24:00.

survive a month without food. If they do feel hungry, they will eat

:24:00.:24:05.

glue off the back of a post aj stamp or something. I have to win this

:24:05.:24:09.

round. Well, that is the end of round two.

:24:09.:24:15.

Close and both contenders have disgusting eating habits, but on

:24:15.:24:20.

balance, I'm giving that one to the cockroach. So level pegging into the

:24:20.:24:24.

final round. Now let's hear about the special powers.

:24:24.:24:30.

Tim you have something in common with the cockroach It is good h

:24:30.:24:35.

looking? No, it is not that, a cockroach breaks wind for 15 mirns

:24:35.:24:40.

and after they die they continue to trump for a further 18 hours to

:24:40.:24:45.

release the methane. Fleas are strong. Oh, yes, they are. They can

:24:45.:24:51.

pull up to 160,000 tons their own body weight. That is like me with a

:24:51.:24:58.

rope and skate board and 5,000 elephants. Bosh! Cockroaches have

:24:58.:25:08.
:25:08.:25:08.

six legs but they have 18 knees! needs 18 knees? ! Fleas can tight

:25:08.:25:13.

rope walk and play football all in the flea us.

:25:13.:25:20.

Are you ready to throw the actual in? A cockroach can survive for nine

:25:20.:25:28.

days without its head. A knock-out blow! That is the end of the Battle

:25:28.:25:36.

of the Beesis. By my reckoning that is the closest ever. Right up to the

:25:36.:25:44.

point that the cockroach can survive for nine days without its head. So

:25:44.:25:51.

going into the winner's enclosure is the cockroach. Can you smell that?

:25:51.:26:01.
:26:01.:26:02.

It is my new after shave. It it is not! Now, there are loads

:26:02.:26:07.

of nature shows on the BBC as part of the wildlife seasoners. As well

:26:07.:26:11.

as the shows there are summer of wildlife events happening over the

:26:11.:26:18.

country. That gives you a chance to get involved as well as getting your

:26:18.:26:23.

hands in a book let like one of these. We have been asking you to

:26:23.:26:28.

send in messages to tell us what sports you have been out in -- and

:26:28.:26:34.

about and doing. One here from a boy who does skate boarding, although he

:26:34.:26:42.

nearly throws off. And emerald says that she likes roll

:26:42.:26:46.

roller blading as it is fun and adrenaline-filled.

:26:46.:26:51.

Now, it is time to meet another animal, that is not to dissimilar to

:26:51.:26:59.

Radzi's hair. It is one of the UK's favourite mammals, it is the

:26:59.:27:03.

unmistakable hedgehog. Hedgehogs are the only British

:27:03.:27:08.

mammal with spines. When threatened, these prickly creatures roll

:27:08.:27:13.

themselves into a ball, where they use the spines to protect them from

:27:13.:27:18.

predators. They are mainly nocturnal. Snoozing all day and

:27:18.:27:22.

eating all night. However in recent years, the

:27:22.:27:26.

hedgehog numbers have plummeted. Conservationists have warned that

:27:26.:27:30.

they could become extinct in this country if we don't do more to help

:27:30.:27:37.

them. You are joining us now in the garden

:27:37.:27:42.

with Pauline from Secret World. Welcome to WILD! .

:27:42.:27:48.

And lovely hedgehogs. Where have they come from? One has come in that

:27:48.:27:52.

had dog bite wounds. Another was underweight, but they are both

:27:52.:27:56.

nearly ready to go back. So they will be released into the

:27:56.:28:02.

wild? Yes. That is very important. How many spines do they have?

:28:02.:28:06.

have about 5,000, but I have never counted them. Do they have them from

:28:06.:28:14.

birth? No, then they have bumps, but between two to three hours the white

:28:14.:28:18.

spines sprout through. You can see that the skin is pink. So you can

:28:18.:28:23.

almost see through the skin. And hid no-one this blanket. Who is

:28:23.:28:29.

this? This is so cute. This little one is about three to

:28:29.:28:38.

four weeks old. Oh, look at that, that is Floofie.

:28:38.:28:44.

Look at their noses, what do they use them for? They root around for

:28:44.:28:49.

food with their noses. Like a little baby pig.

:28:49.:28:58.

Now, they are under threat, what do we need to do? They need food from

:28:58.:29:04.

the gardens. Put cat food out. Never use slug pellets in the garden, they

:29:04.:29:09.

will do the slugs and snails for you, and they are poisonous. If you

:29:09.:29:14.

have a pond make sure you have a sloping edge, so that they can climb

:29:14.:29:19.

out if they fall in. So they can get out. So this is

:29:19.:29:24.

really important. If you want tips on how to make your

:29:24.:29:28.

garden more hedgehog friendly, head to the website at wide

:29:28.:29:34.

[email protected] You can get some top tips.

:29:34.:29:40.

Adorable. Right, I'm ready for more wild adventures, Tim, what do you

:29:40.:29:46.

have in store for us? I'm with one of the most exciting outdoor

:29:46.:29:51.

activities that you can do. I'm talking about BMX racing. #3shgs 2,

:29:51.:29:58.

1, go! They are off. This is BMX racing. It is fast it is furious, it

:29:58.:30:03.

is handle bar to handle bar. It risen to prominence. Tracks like

:30:03.:30:10.

this are springing up all over the UK. It is an Olympic sport. We have

:30:10.:30:20.
:30:20.:30:22.

Liam Philips and ShanazeReade doing so well. Fingers crossed we have the

:30:22.:30:28.

next Olympic hopefuls. Now, talk to us about BMX racing.

:30:28.:30:32.

What do you love about it? Well it gets you to do something. It gives

:30:32.:30:37.

you an aim it is really exciting and fun. Can you talk us through the

:30:37.:30:43.

bikes, they are different? Slimmer wheels? They have thinner wheels. It

:30:43.:30:46.

makes you go faster. They are lighter.

:30:46.:30:51.

One brake? Yes. I'm going to race. Do you have tips

:30:51.:30:58.

for me? Inside peddle up on the bum. Keep the peddles level and push down

:30:58.:31:04.

over the lip, or you will go flying. Well, that went in one ear and out

:31:04.:31:09.

of the other, but I am taking it to the table to beat these kits kids at

:31:09.:31:19.
:31:19.:31:24.

their own game. I don't think that I look fast. I don't have the peddles

:31:24.:31:34.

like they have. Wow! Wait! Wait! The first thing that is apparent is how

:31:34.:31:40.

big the jumps are. These are the routes that set you off into the

:31:40.:31:46.

tarmac area. This is 180 degrees, I have a choice, left or right. I'm

:31:46.:31:54.

going right. Yes! Is everybody as out of breath as me? No? OK.

:31:54.:32:00.

Well, the loops are massive. Obviously the pros will be over them

:32:00.:32:05.

easily. I can hardly think, I am so out of

:32:05.:32:15.
:32:15.:32:24.

breath. I might just... He's cheating! No! Wow!

:32:24.:32:28.

ALL SPEAK AT ONCE Cheat! Cheat! They were like rats

:32:28.:32:35.

out of drainpipes. Gone. You know what? I'm not a cheat. What is

:32:35.:32:40.

calling me a cheat? He is a total cheat. He cut out half of the course

:32:40.:32:45.

and he still lost. Cheats never prosper.

:32:45.:32:51.

To be fair, the decoy BMX racing crew are rapid.

:32:51.:32:56.

I want to have a go on that. There are BMX clbs up and down the

:32:56.:33:00.

country, so go to one and see how it is done.

:33:00.:33:04.

Now it may surprise you to know that urban areas are still teeming with

:33:04.:33:10.

wildlife. As this week's WILD! Things found out on a night-time

:33:10.:33:19.

mission. When it comes to wastelands, city

:33:19.:33:23.

centres or even the back garden, we don't think much about the wildlife

:33:23.:33:29.

that lives there, but if you know where to look, there is a wild world

:33:29.:33:34.

of wonder living in the weeds. Jackson is creepy-crawley crazy. He

:33:34.:33:38.

loves nothing more than looking after the insect pets. His friends

:33:38.:33:45.

don't share his passion for all things arachnid but they are willing

:33:45.:33:50.

to be convinced. I am Jackson. I hate football and

:33:50.:34:00.

spicy food. My name is Jahan, I hate shopping. My name is Jack. I he Thai

:34:00.:34:10.
:34:10.:34:11.

food and big spiders. -- I hate Thai food and big spiders. I am Catherine

:34:11.:34:18.

and I don't like complicated words! Now this may look like a piece of

:34:18.:34:23.

wasteground but if you counted every sickle creepy-crawley, fly, bug,

:34:23.:34:29.

spring tail in the ground, how much do you think you would get? In the

:34:29.:34:33.

hundred thousands? More than that. Millions.

:34:33.:34:37.

20 million, perhaps, maybe even more. So I will ask you to find some

:34:37.:34:47.
:34:47.:34:52.

find some of the mini beasts that live here.

:34:52.:34:59.

That is very nice that is a wasp. Next! A hoverfly.

:34:59.:35:09.
:35:09.:35:11.

Where is it? Look at that. That is cool.

:35:11.:35:16.

A wood louse. . George! I think we found some.

:35:16.:35:23.

Oh, that is a nice spider. That is lovely. Isn't that a great shape?

:35:23.:35:28.

Now, there is a good trick to use. If you find spiders on the wall, how

:35:28.:35:34.

do you think you can tempt it out? Pre Pretend you are a fly.

:35:34.:35:40.

How? Vibe rations. How do you make vibe rations?

:35:40.:35:43.

tuning fork. Yes. Who wants a try of that.

:35:44.:35:47.

will. There are a few holes in there, I

:35:47.:35:57.
:35:57.:36:06.

So far we have found about five or six species of spider. There are

:36:07.:36:15.

lots of spider ties, harvestmen, ticks, mites, pseudo-spiders and

:36:15.:36:20.

scorpions. Now there is only one species of a proper scorpion in the

:36:20.:36:29.

UK. Have you ever seen it? You know why? It only lives here.

:36:29.:36:35.

There is a wall over there with a colony of European scorpions.

:36:35.:36:42.

Who wants to hold a scorpion? Scorpions are nocturnal hunters,

:36:42.:36:47.

meaning that the team will have to come back when the sun goes down. It

:36:47.:36:52.

is dark so the scorpions should be out. So the scorpions glow a

:36:52.:36:57.

beautiful green colour in ultra violent light. You have the torch

:36:57.:37:02.

so, all we do is go along the wall carefully. When you see something

:37:02.:37:08.

bright green, it is a scorion, OK? So that's it. Find as many scorpions

:37:08.:37:18.
:37:18.:37:23.

When you see them it is unmistakable.

:37:23.:37:31.

George... Have you got one?Yeah. Look.

:37:31.:37:37.

Look at that. That is amazing. Isn't that fantastic? Who wants to hold

:37:37.:37:43.

it? No thanks. The best way to hold it is to gently

:37:43.:37:47.

hold the tail and... It is going under my shirt.

:37:48.:37:54.

The hard parts glow but the soft parts, beside the abdomen and

:37:54.:38:01.

between the plates are dark. That is not made of the same material, but

:38:01.:38:07.

all scorpions glow. That is convenient if you want to find them.

:38:07.:38:17.
:38:17.:38:18.

He is moving! Look at that. That is impressive. Rather nice.

:38:18.:38:21.

There are probably hundreds in the wall.

:38:22.:38:27.

It is one of the things that you hear about but when you see it, it

:38:27.:38:33.

is shocking. When I heard that there were scorpions are living here I was

:38:33.:38:40.

gob smacked. It is a one in a lifetime sight.

:38:40.:38:45.

Jackson and his friends loved finding one of the UK's most unusual

:38:45.:38:51.

inhabitants. Hello, gorgeous boy.

:38:51.:38:56.

ALL SPEAK AT ONCE We went WILD! Wow! Scorpions in the

:38:56.:39:05.

UK. They were braver than me. Now, skate boards may not be your thing,

:39:05.:39:09.

but here on WILD! We have found a sport just for you.

:39:09.:39:19.
:39:19.:39:19.

Have a look at. This So this is parkour. Or freerunning.

:39:19.:39:26.

It is hugely popular, but in order to flip, jump, Spained throw

:39:26.:39:31.

yourself around obstacles like, this you need a little bit of agility.

:39:31.:39:40.

You need to be, yes, Matt! How good is? This? ! Let's get Dom over here.

:39:40.:39:45.

Join us. That was pretty special. I will not

:39:45.:39:52.

lie to you. Dom, how on earth do you get into freerunning. I saw Jump

:39:53.:39:56.

London nine years ago, I've been doing it since then.

:39:56.:40:02.

I saw that it was a great show. Can anyone do it? It is really important

:40:02.:40:06.

from the beginning you get to the professionals for instruction. You

:40:06.:40:11.

see us doing it. We have been training for many years. We make it

:40:11.:40:15.

look easy, but go to a proper club. Get someone to teach you properly

:40:15.:40:18.

and you learn techniques from the start.

:40:18.:40:23.

How long does it take to get really good at it? Within a year you can

:40:23.:40:27.

get to a reasonable standard, but it is like a marshal art. You can train

:40:27.:40:33.

it all your life. I would love a go at this. Can you

:40:33.:40:41.

show few a trick? Yes. Gently! We will get you to do a cat

:40:41.:40:46.

leap. You take a run, jump up, jump on to the box it is important that

:40:46.:40:51.

the ball of the foot touches the box. Bend your knees to slow down

:40:51.:40:54.

and catch on. So make it a little smaller.

:40:54.:41:04.
:41:04.:41:05.

I like that! So from here, left, right,

:41:05.:41:12.

kick your back leg through, catch OK. It is all about fluid motion.

:41:12.:41:17.

No too much power. Slowly to Saturday with.

:41:17.:41:23.

-- slowly to start with. So, left, right, leap! Oh, no,

:41:23.:41:28.

rebound. One more. I have this. You must be strong in the arms. Left,

:41:28.:41:38.

right, leap. He's on! Yes! I'm the king of Parkour. That is insane what

:41:38.:41:43.

you are doing. Dom, thank you very much for coming along. Street

:41:43.:41:49.

Motion. If you want a go at home. Go find the experts, get the right

:41:50.:41:56.

tuition and you could be like this lot! I want to have a go on that.

:41:56.:42:01.

That is cool. In 40 minutes we have brought you a

:42:01.:42:07.

show jam packed with urban wildlife. The peregrine falcons and the

:42:07.:42:12.

hedgehogs, but not everything that livings -- lives around us is so

:42:12.:42:19.

appealing. Rats. The name makes us shudder. These mammals love living

:42:19.:42:23.

in towns and cities as much as we do. They make their homes in the

:42:23.:42:30.

dark sewers and scavenge on rubbish dumps and around bins. They car

:42:30.:42:37.

diseases and cause day yous chewing through wood and wires. They can

:42:37.:42:42.

even survive being flushed down the toilets. They are one of the most

:42:42.:42:46.

feared creatures in the UK, but is this bad reputation really one that

:42:46.:42:51.

they deserve? I think it is fair to say that rats are not everyone's

:42:51.:42:57.

favourite animal. However, Ellie is a massive fan, aren't Ellie. What do

:42:57.:43:01.

you have here? I have two babies and two adults.

:43:01.:43:07.

They didn't have names until yesterday. I have named them. I

:43:07.:43:15.

called them Timina and Razille! So you have been keeping rats for

:43:15.:43:20.

several years. What do you love about them? They are playful.

:43:20.:43:23.

Because they a ajile you see them climb a lot.

:43:23.:43:26.

Do you think that they a clever animals? They are.

:43:27.:43:31.

What makes you say that? You can teach them tricks. They can ring a

:43:31.:43:37.

bell when they are hungry. When they want attention. Amazing.

:43:37.:43:42.

Do they do any other tricks? follows me to bed sometimes.

:43:42.:43:47.

What do your friends think about you keeping rats. Do they come around or

:43:47.:43:51.

prefer to stay away? They like to see them but they are not so keen

:43:52.:43:55.

sometimes. They have a reputation of being

:43:55.:43:59.

dirty animals, is that fair? They are clean. As you can see by their

:43:59.:44:02.

coats. They are always cleaning

:44:02.:44:06.

themselveses. They are lovely. Now, Radzi is not

:44:06.:44:11.

overly keen to meet your rats. He is not so good with them. What do you

:44:11.:44:17.

say to people who are scared of rats? Have you ever touched them,

:44:17.:44:23.

held them? Once. What are you scared of snoo

:44:23.:44:29.

tails! That freaks a lot of people. I will try to hold it.

:44:29.:44:35.

Ellie is looking after you. You are holding it, well done. I don't...

:44:35.:44:42.

Argh! They are so cute. Whatever your opinion on rats, you cannot

:44:42.:44:45.

fail to admit that they are successful creatures.

:44:45.:44:49.

I have a rat in my pocket. The reason that they have the

:44:49.:44:54.

reputation that they have is that they eat the food and rubbish that

:44:54.:44:59.

we leave lying around. Ellie, you are doing a great job standing up

:44:59.:45:04.

for the rat. Now, it is time for my favourite part of the show it is

:45:04.:45:14.
:45:14.:45:18.

time for Radzi's Crazy Creations! So last week Tim and Naomi got their

:45:19.:45:24.

hands wet making their mini pond. We had it show you this. This is from

:45:24.:45:29.

Holly. She lives in Surrey. Look at the effort that went into that great

:45:29.:45:35.

work. Well done Holly. From encouraging wildlife to come into

:45:35.:45:41.

the back gardens last week, this time it is the bird's turn.

:45:41.:45:46.

We might like birds to visit our gardens but not everyone gives them

:45:46.:45:52.

a warm welcome. Farmers have built scarecrows to frighten the feathered

:45:52.:46:00.

friends away. But the scarecrow does not always do a great job. Many

:46:00.:46:08.

birds still steal the farmers' crops. So it is time for the not so

:46:08.:46:13.

scary scarecrow to have a job change. Instead of making birds

:46:13.:46:16.

flee, he will be their new best friend.

:46:16.:46:22.

What is he like? Well this week, Tim, Naomi, you are making one of

:46:22.:46:27.

these. A bird friendly scarecrow. So, let's get the making started.

:46:27.:46:37.
:46:37.:46:42.

You have two minutesment everything you need is here. 3, 2, 1! You have

:46:42.:46:48.

two minutes. You will have to get your skates on for it, that could

:46:48.:46:51.

have something to do with the forfeit. .

:46:51.:46:57.

I will give you a run down of how I made this. You need old clothes. You

:46:57.:47:03.

can get them from the charity shop. I went into my dad's wardrobe. A

:47:03.:47:09.

shirt. A pillow case for the head. I styled that face. A hat and in order

:47:09.:47:14.

to make it friendly, there are seats hanging from it. Millet seeds,

:47:14.:47:20.

monkey nuts. Anything to attract the birds. You don't need two minutes to

:47:20.:47:26.

do yours, you have as long as you want. For more you can go to

:47:26.:47:30.

[email protected], it will tell you everybody you need to know to make

:47:30.:47:37.

one better than Tim and Naomi's. Take a picture of your scarecrow and

:47:37.:47:43.

send it into [email protected] Naomi, you have a minute left on the clock.

:47:43.:47:49.

I am modelling a face on Tim. Look how smiley he is.

:47:49.:47:59.
:47:59.:48:02.

But they is -- but he is very thin. 45 seconds, Timbo! I'm creating an

:48:02.:48:12.
:48:12.:48:14.

General H.Norman Schwarzkopf style of muscle! Make sure that the man

:48:14.:48:22.

does not look under fed. This is like the Which had arred of

:48:22.:48:28.

Oz! The crowd are loving this. Close to the ten-second countdown. How

:48:28.:48:38.
:48:38.:48:41.

long? Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one stop your making! It

:48:41.:48:46.

is judgment time. Looking thin. But look at the smiling face. The

:48:46.:48:49.

seeds for the birds. You have made it friendly.

:48:49.:48:56.

I like it. A smiling face on a scarecrow? !

:48:56.:49:02.

What about the seeds to make it friendly. Tim! It is meant to be

:49:02.:49:06.

friendly. It is a scarecrow it is in the

:49:06.:49:10.

title, scarecrow. It is WILD! Judgment time. The

:49:10.:49:20.
:49:20.:49:21.

winner without a doubt is, Naomi! More importantly, the loser is Tim,

:49:21.:49:30.

so you are receiving this week's forfeit. We have two cos tombs in

:49:30.:49:35.

the bag. We don't need that, but Tim, go get changed. He never

:49:35.:49:38.

learns. Now let's meet an 11-year-old who

:49:38.:49:48.
:49:48.:49:55.

has a really WILD! Life at school. My name is Jan, I'm 11 and I love

:49:55.:50:03.

all British wildlife, but what I really love are... Bees! You may not

:50:03.:50:07.

think that we have many bees in the city but I've been looking after

:50:07.:50:14.

thousands of bees at my primary school for the last three years.

:50:14.:50:20.

Morning Mr Baker. Good, how are you? Fine, sir.

:50:20.:50:26.

Sometimes I help out in the school holidays. I love beekeeping because

:50:26.:50:30.

it disciplines me a lot and it show as sense of control and how you are

:50:30.:50:38.

meant to act around them. Not just anyone can approach a hive

:50:38.:50:44.

of bees. My school gave me special training to allow me to do this.

:50:44.:50:49.

Some of our teachers are trained bee-keepers.

:50:49.:50:54.

As the bee-keeper, I look after the hives to make sure that they are

:50:54.:50:59.

hety. We get our tools together and light the smoker. Bees think that

:50:59.:51:05.

the hives are on fire, so they suck up all the honey that they can. That

:51:05.:51:10.

is why this seem drowsy when they fly. There is lots of larvae, that

:51:10.:51:16.

is a good sign. The colony will get huge. All of the cells are full of

:51:16.:51:26.
:51:26.:51:27.

delicious honey. You can see around the edge there,

:51:27.:51:34.

you can tell it is ready to extract as the bees have put caps on the

:51:34.:51:41.

cells like tiny lids. We are going to start extract

:51:41.:51:47.

extracting and put it in our large barrel. This will turn into honey,

:51:47.:51:53.

believe it or not. While this honey is not ready for us to eat, we are

:51:53.:51:59.

collecting it to sell at the school fair in a few weeks' time. Now I'm

:51:59.:52:03.

taking the caps off the honey. We just have to have adult supervision

:52:03.:52:07.

while we are doing this. You can see the honey oozing from the holes as

:52:07.:52:11.

it should be. This is quite hard to do as they

:52:11.:52:19.

have made it for a very long time and they would love it to be

:52:19.:52:25.

preserved. I think we are there with that one.

:52:25.:52:30.

The most exciting part that I enjoy is extracting the honey.

:52:30.:52:38.

We have to put the trays into the barrel and you have to spin it, the

:52:38.:52:48.
:52:48.:52:56.

honey falls out tonne the sides and drips down on to the 's This is the

:52:56.:53:03.

fun bit. You get to spin around and you see the honey coming out of the

:53:03.:53:12.

frames. Then we open the barrel's lid. That is when we see the honey

:53:12.:53:17.

filling up quickly. That is when it fills up really fast. That is

:53:17.:53:21.

amazing. The money we get from selling the honey goes back into

:53:21.:53:26.

looking offer our bees. OK. I think we have enough to put

:53:26.:53:36.
:53:36.:53:37.

into some jars. I'm excited to see all my hard work

:53:37.:53:42.

pay off. Because insects put hard work into producing this honey.

:53:42.:53:52.
:53:52.:53:55.

Absolutely. Look at that. Beautiful, isn't it? I love working with them,

:53:55.:54:00.

usually I'm an angry boy but now I'm working with the bees, my anger has

:54:00.:54:10.
:54:10.:54:11.

all gone. The last jar of tasty honey, yeah! I

:54:11.:54:16.

love that you make honey. That is brilliant. Well done. A top film.

:54:16.:54:23.

Yes. Now it is time for Tim, his forfeit time. Tim, out you come.

:54:23.:54:29.

Come on, we want to see you. What are you wearing? Tim, you should

:54:29.:54:34.

have made a bird-friendly scarecrow and you didn't. Come on, Tim. Get

:54:34.:54:41.

yourself out. There he is! Look at what he is wearing. It suits you.

:54:41.:54:47.

Our own waiter with drinks. He has to get around the obstacle

:54:47.:54:54.

course and bring the drinks to us. Oh, no. He is unsteady on his feet.

:54:54.:55:00.

Come on, til. -- come on, Tim.

:55:00.:55:10.
:55:10.:55:18.

Be careful Tim. I love the yellow leg-warmers. That orange drink looks

:55:18.:55:24.

very nice. I have my eye on the purple drink.

:55:24.:55:31.

Oh! Go on, Tim. Pay attention!I think he is actually going to get

:55:31.:55:37.

some drinks to us. I don't believe it. I will get a drink. I never

:55:37.:55:47.
:55:47.:55:47.

thought that was going to happen. Here he is... No!No! Tim. I'm

:55:47.:55:52.

thirsty scla That was so good.Tim, you did well. Very well.

:55:52.:55:59.

We have some pictures in. Jake you sent us picture of you BMX racing at

:55:59.:56:02.

Manchester National. You love it. Nice work.

:56:03.:56:10.

And this is from Charlotte, aged seven. She say says these foxes live

:56:10.:56:18.

underneath her school. There are six cubs. How beautiful.

:56:18.:56:28.
:56:28.:56:28.

And Tamasin says she is a jump scooter on BMX dirt tracks.

:56:28.:56:35.
