:00:30.:00:39.

fall asleep on a sandy beach? off! Sorry, I would love to, but I

programme that aims to get you off your sofa. I am Naomi Wilkinson.

:01:27.:01:37.

am Tim Warwood, and today we are by the seaside. We do like to be beside

:01:37.:01:44.

the seaside! Today we find ourselves all the way across the country at

:01:44.:01:49.

the Sealife Centre in Hunstanton in Norfolk. We want to know if you have

:01:49.:01:57.

been to the beach recently. If so, go to the website. We want to hear

:01:57.:02:04.

about your seaside adventures. haven't come all this way on our

:02:04.:02:14.

own, have we? No, we have brought our fabulous group. Fabulous? ! It

:02:14.:02:19.

is not just the crew, it is time to introduce a man who is so amazing,

:02:19.:02:29.
:02:29.:02:31.

he has rad in his name, it is Radzi. It is worth honing your artistic

:02:31.:02:41.
:02:41.:02:41.

skill this week because the forfeit involves cleaning. And... Sharks.

:02:41.:02:48.

cannot believe it, he said cleaning. No, he said sharks. Don't worry

:02:48.:02:55.

about that. Welcome our special guests, windsurfing freestyle

:02:55.:03:05.
:03:05.:03:13.

champion, and an epic adventure, -- adventurer, Dave Cornthwaite. We

:03:13.:03:19.

have all of that and oceans more. Are you happy with that? From the

:03:19.:03:29.
:03:29.:03:30.

girl who said otterly fabulous last week? I get close to a stunning

:03:30.:03:36.

seabird spectacle. And swimming with seals for an animal and counter of a

:03:36.:03:46.
:03:46.:03:47.

lifetime. Then goes in search of some surprising seaside residents.

:03:47.:03:51.

Those seals look adorable, and even better I will be meeting some baby

:03:51.:03:56.

seals live on the show later. We have to keep them away from our

:03:56.:04:04.

first guest, top of the food chain, a ruthless predator. Sea snakes.No,

:04:04.:04:14.
:04:14.:04:17.

a bird of prey, lives on the coast, a white toed eagle. I was close.Not

:04:17.:04:22.

really. It can grow up to a metre tall, have a wingspan of nearly 2.5

:04:23.:04:32.
:04:33.:04:35.

metres, and weighing in at seven kilos. This is the white-tailed

:04:35.:04:42.

eagle. Once extinct here, they have been reintroduced to Scotland and

:04:42.:04:48.

can once again be seen flying across our coastline. They are scavengers

:04:48.:04:53.

and opportunists, but also deadly hunters. They swoop down on the fish

:04:53.:04:59.

and catch them from the water. We are now welcoming to Wild Graham,

:04:59.:05:09.
:05:09.:05:15.

and a stunning white-tailed eagle. Who is this? This is Pamela. They

:05:15.:05:21.

are the iconic species. Can we look at the wingspan because that is

:05:21.:05:28.

ridiculously big, isn't it? Why do they have to be so big? They help to

:05:28.:05:33.

carry their big body weight through the sky and they are normally

:05:33.:05:40.

catching fish and even seabirds. That is absolutely special. It has a

:05:40.:05:47.

white tail, why's that? whitetail is an indication it is a

:05:47.:05:52.

fish eating birds because the normally swim at the top of the

:05:52.:05:56.

surface, and this bird snatches them, and the fish cannot see it

:05:56.:06:04.

coming because of blends in with the skyline. Look at its talons, why do

:06:04.:06:10.

they need such deadly tools? This can carry three times its own body

:06:10.:06:17.

weight, if you imagine a massive fish, she has got to grip onto it,

:06:17.:06:22.

and she turns it so it is facing forward so that she is streamlined.

:06:22.:06:31.

Amazing. We have to comment on her enormous peak. It glistens off the

:06:31.:06:39.

light, it is an incredible bit of kit. Is that how she kills her prey?

:06:39.:06:47.

Yes, once she has grabbed it, she rips at the back of the neck.

:06:47.:06:53.

are these birds so special for you? She is majestic, she doesn't look at

:06:53.:06:59.

you, she looks straight through you. There has been a massive

:06:59.:07:04.

reintroduction programme, do you think we will see them spreading

:07:04.:07:11.

across the UK? It would be lovely to think so. Fingers crossed we might

:07:11.:07:18.

see one in Norfolk. To me, and eagle represents everything about Wild,

:07:18.:07:26.

wild and rugged. Radzi, what do the audience make of Pamela? Pamela is

:07:26.:07:33.

so cool. What do we think in the audience? She is lovely, I just love

:07:33.:07:42.

how her beak has that tip, and how big her wings are, and her talons

:07:42.:07:48.

and how her tale is white. She is lovely. I couldn't agree more. Have

:07:48.:07:55.

you seen any birds in the wild? I have seen vultures, eagles and

:07:55.:08:05.
:08:05.:08:10.

hawks. If you have seen any birds in the wild, send them to -- send the

:08:10.:08:16.

pictures to the website and we might be able to show them later. Also if

:08:16.:08:24.

you have a photo of yourself doing any activities, send them in.

:08:24.:08:34.

have a photo from Alfie, age seven, this is him body boarding. He is a

:08:34.:08:38.

wild kid. We also have a picture from Andre, catching his first

:08:39.:08:48.

waves. He loves sharks, and has also tried dolphin spotting. We have time

:08:48.:08:57.

from one comment - I was swimming in the sea and saw lots of tiny

:08:57.:09:07.
:09:07.:09:11.

fishes. Before I forget, about the forfeit later, can you swim? Yes.

:09:11.:09:18.

Can Tim swim? I think so, why? You have mentioned swimming and sharks.

:09:18.:09:23.

Stay tuned for this terrible forfeit. I hope Tim can swim because

:09:23.:09:29.

he is heading out to sea with our next guest. I do need to be able to

:09:29.:09:33.

swim because I am learning some windsurfing basics from one of the

:09:33.:09:40.

best in the business. Look at this. Andy Chambers, known to the

:09:40.:09:50.
:09:50.:10:00.

windsurfing world as Bubble has been the windsurfing champion for five

:10:00.:10:04.

years. It takes stamina, strength and skill to pull off these

:10:04.:10:10.

spectacular moves at such high speeds. We can now welcoming him to

:10:10.:10:19.

Wild, it is Andy Chambers. Welcome to the show. Let's not glossed over

:10:19.:10:25.

it, there is no wind here, so not ideal conditions for your chosen

:10:25.:10:33.

sport, but you can get up to some incredible tricks. Yes, when it is

:10:33.:10:40.

windy you can do all sorts of crazy moves, a lot of rotations. Earlier

:10:40.:10:50.
:10:50.:10:52.

you were telling me about a trick... Yes, stopping midair, and

:10:52.:10:59.

rotating backwards again. That is defying physics! How did you get

:10:59.:11:04.

into windsurfing? I used to sit on the beach watching people flying

:11:04.:11:12.

around, and I thought it was epic, I had to have a go at it. Can anybody

:11:12.:11:22.

do windsurfing? Definitely, anybody can have a go. The beginners' boards

:11:22.:11:27.

are very light, and if you are sporty you will have no worries.

:11:27.:11:33.

What do you get out of teaching? is so nice to see people getting so

:11:33.:11:40.

much enjoyment out of the sport that I get so much enjoyment out of. It

:11:40.:11:46.

makes the whole thing totally worth it. Wild would not be Wild if I

:11:46.:11:56.

didn't give it a go. Come on! the back of the board for me. The

:11:56.:12:05.

main thing, keep your knees bent, your arms straight, look where you

:12:05.:12:14.

want to go and you should be fine. Easy as that. Arms straight. It is

:12:14.:12:23.

all right! Try to keep your arms nice and straight. Knees bent, arms

:12:23.:12:32.

straight. Look to where you want to go. It is obviously easier when

:12:32.:12:42.

there is some wind. I am all right! It is a lot harder it looks. Naomi,

:12:42.:12:50.

you should have a go at this. think she would be better at it!

:12:50.:12:56.

Fortunately we have another Tim on the show today, and he is in here

:12:56.:13:00.

with our next creature. He has brought in a marine animal that is

:13:00.:13:07.

downright weird and it is related to this. Down in the depths of the

:13:07.:13:17.
:13:17.:13:20.

ocean, there is a real monster in the abyss. It is a giant deep sea I

:13:20.:13:28.

-- isopod, and they live at the bottom of the oceans. Food is scarce

:13:28.:13:34.

in this barren world. They scavenge on the remains of dead whales, fish

:13:34.:13:40.

and giant squid that fall from the water above. Life is feast or famine

:13:40.:13:50.

for these mysterious creatures of the deep. Here is Doctor Tim

:13:50.:13:57.

Cockerel. Nice to see you again. You have brought in a special animal,

:13:57.:14:02.

what is this? We are so lucky to have this because normally lives 600

:14:02.:14:08.

metres will oversee on the ocean floor. It is a giant deep sea

:14:08.:14:18.
:14:18.:14:18.

isopod, and it is related to the woodlouse in your back garden.

:14:18.:14:25.

is so similar. Woodlouse is a type of isopod as well, but this is 30

:14:25.:14:32.

times bigger. Why is it so big Western Mark because they live on

:14:32.:14:37.

the floor of the ocean, they are very sensitive to light levels so we

:14:38.:14:47.
:14:48.:14:48.

have to be very careful. It is so alien, it has triangular eyes.

:14:48.:14:55.

uses them to track down things that glow-in-the-dark. It has four sets

:14:55.:15:03.

of mouthparts. It scavenges along on dead things on the ocean floor, but

:15:03.:15:09.

it can also track down live things like sea cucumbers as well. They eat

:15:09.:15:17.

a lot, don't they? Yes, they can eat until they can barely move. Their

:15:17.:15:24.

size helps them cope with the pressure at that depth. Yes, the

:15:24.:15:28.

reason woodlice don't grow this big is because they have their skeleton

:15:28.:15:34.

on the outside and they have to shed their skin when they grow. If this

:15:34.:15:37.

was on land it would collapse under its own weight so the water helps to

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:16:00.

support it. Can I touch it?Nice and gentle. It is unbelievable. Kieran

:16:00.:16:05.

that works at the aquarium actually found an isopod a lot smaller than

:16:05.:16:08.

this just out on the beach, which is pretty amazing. I bet she would have

:16:08.:16:14.

been a bit more wary if you had known they were out there! I am glad

:16:14.:16:21.

I did not know. But look at how I got on when I kayaked out to a

:16:21.:16:26.

simply stunning seabird spectacle in Scotland are couple of weeks ago. --

:16:26.:16:31.

a couple of weeks ago. The UK coastline is surrounded by

:16:31.:16:37.

literally thousands of islands. Some are large, some no more than a lump

:16:37.:16:42.

of rock sticking out of the sea. Like that one. It might look like

:16:42.:16:48.

just a rock, but it is very special. It might be off the coast of

:16:49.:16:54.

Scotland, but that is not snow on the top. That white colour is from

:16:54.:16:59.

the thousands and thousands of birds living there. It is home to one of

:16:59.:17:05.

the world 's largest colonies of nesting gannets. In the summer,

:17:05.:17:12.

every nuke and cranny, ledge and precipice is covered with over

:17:12.:17:20.

150,000 majestic seabirds. All here to nest and raise chicks. There is a

:17:20.:17:25.

simple way for me to get to the rock. I could go in a boat like this

:17:26.:17:31.

one, but this one is apparently for the crew, so I am going to be

:17:31.:17:37.

travelling via kayak. I will be paddling all the way. How far is

:17:37.:17:43.

that? One mile? ! I have never been one of these before!

:17:43.:17:50.

Check me out! Only joking, that is not really me! I am new to this, so

:17:50.:17:55.

I have enlisted the help of expert George, who will show me how it is

:17:55.:18:05.
:18:05.:18:06.

done. Look! The conditions are perfect.

:18:06.:18:10.

There it is, just over one mile away. It does not look too far but

:18:10.:18:16.

it will take me around one hour to reach it, so I think it will hurt. I

:18:16.:18:19.

have bandages, ready for the blisters, but I can't wait to see

:18:19.:18:27.

these birds. So over these waves, just keep going? Keep paddling, nice

:18:27.:18:37.
:18:37.:18:47.

and steady, don't worry about flying around it. So many of them.

:18:47.:18:56.

Keep up! I said it was supposed to be a nice,

:18:56.:19:03.

relaxing day out, we are not racing. I'm enjoying it, it is fun.

:19:03.:19:06.

From here, it looks like a snow globe that has been shaken, the

:19:07.:19:12.

birds look like snow. It. Their wingspan is nearly two metres, just

:19:12.:19:22.
:19:22.:19:29.

under the size of my paddle. They Do you know why they are called

:19:29.:19:36.

gannets? Greedy by name, greedy by nature? They can need up to 10% of

:19:36.:19:41.

their own body weight a day, which I have been told, which is the

:19:41.:19:45.

equivalent of meeting 40 burgers. If I did that, I would not fit in this

:19:45.:19:50.

sea kayak! It is not just the amount of food

:19:50.:19:53.

they that is astonishing, they are famous for the way they catch their

:19:53.:20:03.

food. They dive like a spear into the sea from 30 metres into the air

:20:03.:20:08.

and reach speeds of up to 60 miles an hour. To protect themselves

:20:08.:20:12.

against the impact of diving into the water, they have special air

:20:12.:20:18.

sacs under their skin, like their very own bubble wrap. Look! So many

:20:18.:20:26.

birds! It smells a bit like the penguin

:20:26.:20:36.
:20:36.:20:41.

enclosure at the zoo! They are very similar. I was just nearly pooed on.

:20:41.:20:47.

I just missed it by a millimetre! They really have found every single

:20:47.:20:56.

crevice to nest in. Anything just about flat enough to land on.

:20:56.:21:03.

are couple up their who are doing the equivalent of our kissing, they

:21:03.:21:10.

do it to reaffirm their bond when they meet again. True romantics!

:21:10.:21:17.

Look at the seal! It is right here! Wow! We have half the population of

:21:17.:21:21.

grey seals living around the British coasts. Lucky us, because they are

:21:21.:21:31.
:21:31.:21:32.

lovely. Where has he gone? You have to look up to appreciate

:21:32.:21:40.

the spectacle, but I am making sure that I keep my mouth shut! This has

:21:40.:21:46.

been wonderful. From this close and this low, I can see why this is a

:21:46.:21:50.

world-famous wildlife spectacle. And to reach it by sea kayak has made it

:21:50.:21:54.

that bit more perfect. But I am exhausted, so could I catch a lift

:21:54.:22:02.

home with you, please? Come back! Come back!

:22:02.:22:11.

They just left me. Did you get pooed on? A tiny bit on one finger, which

:22:11.:22:19.

I think was a miracle, it is so great. Did you lick it off?No!

:22:19.:22:22.

We have already had a look at some of the wonderful wildlife and a

:22:22.:22:28.

slightly weird one, but now it is time to take a look at the seemingly

:22:28.:22:31.

insignificant little critters that live in the rock pools and under the

:22:31.:22:37.

seaweed. They are the unsung zeros of the seaside. It is time for

:22:37.:22:47.
:22:47.:22:55.

Yes. Step into the ring, I will fill you in on the rules. Tim and Naomi

:22:55.:22:59.

have three rounds to convince me that their beastie is worthy of

:22:59.:23:04.

being placed in the big time, in the champions corner. Tim is the current

:23:04.:23:10.

leader, so we'll Naomi last the distance? Naomi, who is your

:23:10.:23:20.
:23:20.:23:25.

contender? I have the one, the only crab! Tim? I am bringing this deadly

:23:25.:23:35.
:23:35.:23:35.

dude, the astonishing jellyfish! crowd are well up for this! Round

:23:35.:23:40.

one, weapons! This will be easy. Crabs have their very own body

:23:40.:23:45.

armour, hard shells called exoskeletons. Their main weapon they

:23:45.:23:51.

are most famous for is their claws. They can crush with some of the

:23:51.:23:55.

strongest forces in the animal kingdom, and the stone crab can

:23:55.:24:04.

exert a pressure greater than a crocodile bites. Jellyfish have

:24:04.:24:10.

weapons, too. They have long, stinging tentacles. They jab poison

:24:10.:24:14.

into their prey which either paralyse is all kills them. They can

:24:14.:24:20.

even sting when they are lying dying on a beach while being prodded by a

:24:20.:24:28.

60 role Tim Warwood! I was still really badly! They can kill a human

:24:28.:24:34.

being in less than four minutes. That type of jellyfish is not

:24:34.:24:39.

technically a true jellyfish. Technicality, they are part of the

:24:39.:24:47.

same family. My Nanny Hughes has an anti-Tracy, she is not a relative

:24:47.:24:51.

but we get a Christmas card! You would be dead before this battle is

:24:51.:24:59.

finished, four minutes. The crowd maybe -- the crab may be tough on

:24:59.:25:03.

the outside, but the stinging tentacles of the jellyfish have slid

:25:03.:25:13.
:25:13.:25:18.

it into first place. Round two, strength in numbers. Let me tell you

:25:18.:25:26.

something. Strength in numbers, the jellyfish, there are over 2000

:25:26.:25:31.

types. The good thing about this is they swarm. When they get together,

:25:31.:25:35.

they have been known to knock down nuclear power stations! Not just

:25:35.:25:39.

that, there is a lake in Indonesia which harbours 10 million

:25:39.:25:48.

jellyfish, 10 million! Only a measly 10 million? ! On Christmas Island in

:25:48.:25:54.

the Indian Ocean, there is an estimated 120 million crabs. Every

:25:54.:26:00.

year they migrate to the sea and the swarm is so big it literally turns

:26:00.:26:07.

the ground red. There are over 6700 different types of crabs. Some of

:26:07.:26:11.

them can lay over 1.5 million eggs each! Talk about strength in

:26:12.:26:17.

numbers! It blows your jellyfish out of the water. Which if that

:26:18.:26:23.

happened, they would shrivel up and die. Crabs can leave in the sea, in

:26:23.:26:28.

water, on trees. Nobody can question the commitment from Wilkinson, but

:26:28.:26:35.

those efforts have paid dividends as the crab is now in level pegging.

:26:36.:26:44.

Now the deciding round. The knockout round! I have got this. Jellyfish

:26:44.:26:49.

have no eyes, no ears, no brain, no lungs, scales, Gilles, brains,

:26:49.:26:55.

lungs, they are 95% water. brain? Sounds like your perfect

:26:55.:27:01.

animal! But crabs have brains and eyes on stalks like submarines, some

:27:01.:27:11.

of them can see around a 360 degrees. Some deep C jellyfish

:27:11.:27:18.

glow-in-the-dark! Some crabs get to live to be 100! There is one species

:27:18.:27:24.

of jellyfish which is technically a mortal. It ages in reverse. Can you

:27:24.:27:28.

imagine if you put that into a face cream? I would be young and

:27:28.:27:35.

beautiful! That is the end of the Battle of the

:27:35.:27:41.

Beasties. Immortality just about trumps everything, so sliding into

:27:41.:27:50.

the champions corner this week is the jellyfish. -- the champion's

:27:50.:28:00.
:28:00.:28:03.

corner. Modesty, modesty! We only have 30

:28:04.:28:07.

minutes left to convince everyone to get off their sofas and down to

:28:07.:28:17.

their local seaside. If you still need inspiration, don't worry. There

:28:17.:28:20.

is a Summer of Wildlife events near you. It encourages people to get out

:28:20.:28:27.

and about. But it is not all about the summer of wildlife. After the

:28:27.:28:34.

show, wait for the show to finish, then press the red button for Wild

:28:34.:28:40.

Extra, where Katie and Dodge have a load of exclusives. We have been

:28:40.:28:43.

asking you to send in your photos and comments, you have not

:28:43.:28:53.
:28:53.:29:06.

disappointed. Jamie aged eight is kayaking in West Wales. There is one

:29:06.:29:11.

comment from Rosie, she says, I was at a small beach in Torquay where we

:29:11.:29:15.

found a baby jellyfish floating in a bucket, and a few minutes later we

:29:15.:29:21.

found another. It was awesome. not touch it, it will sting you!

:29:31.:29:35.

next week! I have come to the seal hospital in the Sea Life Centre,

:29:35.:29:39.

where police seals are brought. We have a lovely little pool. They are

:29:39.:29:45.

being looked after by a very dedicated team of helpers, including

:29:45.:29:53.

Hollie. Who do we have? These are just too cute for words. Look at

:29:53.:30:00.

that face. Aren't they adorable? have Superman and Lois Lane, they

:30:00.:30:08.

are waiting for their breakfast. They all have funny names! Buries a

:30:08.:30:16.

superhero theme, Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman. They are fed every

:30:16.:30:22.

four hours. They are quite hungry. Let's have a look. What else do you

:30:22.:30:30.

have to do each day? We feed them every four hours, we take their

:30:30.:30:34.

temperature everyone in and afternoon. We weigh them every

:30:34.:30:40.

couple of days to make sure they are growing. They just look so hungry.

:30:40.:30:46.

How long will they be in your car? About two months, but as soon as

:30:46.:30:52.

they weigh 30 kilos we release them back where they belong. We tack them

:30:52.:30:57.

and if they wash up in future we know that they started here and we

:30:57.:31:01.

can trace their history. Here is some footage of you putting them

:31:01.:31:08.

back. You put tags on them, so you know if a comeback. What sort of

:31:09.:31:14.

things are brought in for? These were abandoned by their mothers for

:31:14.:31:19.

a variety of reasons. It could be strong currents, high tide, numbers

:31:19.:31:25.

of the public with dogs. We go down with the team and we look at them,

:31:25.:31:30.

when they are this small they their fish soup every four hours.

:31:30.:31:38.

somebody found one? Give us a call. If they come into the Sea Life

:31:38.:31:41.

Centre we would keep them updated and put pictures on the website. You

:31:41.:31:48.

can follow their progress. They just melt your heart. I hope they feel

:31:48.:31:53.

better soon. This will keep you busy for the physio Bull future.

:31:53.:32:03.
:32:03.:32:06.

Definitely. Talking of busy, Tim is about to meet a man who never stops.

:32:06.:32:12.

Davies the master of alternative transport, from kayaking paddle

:32:12.:32:17.

boarding and everything else in between. He skateboarders across

:32:17.:32:21.

Australia, and paddle boarded the length of the Mississippi River, and

:32:21.:32:27.

is on a mission to complete 25 adventures in some of the world's

:32:27.:32:35.

wildest places. All completed with no motors and fuel. Here's the

:32:35.:32:45.
:32:45.:32:54.

ultimate adventurer, Dave Cornthwaite. What inspires you to go

:32:54.:33:00.

out and have these amazing adventures? I used to be a graphic

:33:00.:33:04.

designer and I was rubbish so I decided to make the most of my life

:33:04.:33:09.

and do something I was passionate about. You have been all over the

:33:09.:33:16.

world doing crazy adventures, which brings us to this bad boy, the

:33:16.:33:22.

aqua-skipping. How did you come across this? I read about it in a

:33:22.:33:27.

newspaper and I wondered if I could cross the Channel in that. I thought

:33:27.:33:34.

that would be a relentlessly foolish idea! You are the British 100 metre

:33:34.:33:39.

record holder on this, I gather there weren't too many challengers,

:33:39.:33:46.

but can anybody have a go at this? Anybody can have a go with the right

:33:46.:33:52.

situation and I would like to teach you how to do it. I am itching to

:33:52.:33:56.

have a go. Let's have a demonstration and see the

:33:56.:34:06.
:34:06.:34:19.

have a go at this, it is incredibly difficult and I don't know what to

:34:19.:34:25.

say, other than... Dave is making it look very easy, I am going to have a

:34:25.:34:33.

go and see what happens. Everything we have thrown at him so far, he has

:34:33.:34:42.

mastered. Off he goes. He said I have seen this, it looks really

:34:42.:34:49.

easy! I bet he is regretting saying that now. He has to go back to the

:34:49.:34:59.
:34:59.:35:04.

beginning to have a go again. Go on, Tim! And again! He is going for it.

:35:04.:35:12.

The art of Aqua sinking! If you thought swimming was something you

:35:12.:35:22.
:35:22.:35:27.

could only do indoors, think again. We sent some of you out on an

:35:27.:35:31.

exciting experience. All summer, we have been seeking wild things in

:35:31.:35:37.

every corner of the UK, and now we are 30 miles off the Cornish coast

:35:37.:35:47.
:35:47.:35:47.

at the stunning Scilly Isles. 12-year-old Tanya is mad about

:35:47.:35:53.

swimming, not just in her local pool. She also loves taking a dip in

:35:53.:35:58.

the spectacular surrounding seaside of her home and today she has

:35:58.:36:03.

arranged for three of her friends to join her on a very special swim.

:36:03.:36:13.

Hello, my name is Tanya. I like being inside and lazing around.

:36:13.:36:23.
:36:23.:36:24.

Hello, my name is Henry and I don't like spiders. My name is Reece, I

:36:24.:36:33.

don't like spinach. The remote and beautiful Scilly Isles have some

:36:34.:36:38.

fantastic wildlife, and Tanya is planning to introduce her friends to

:36:38.:36:46.

some furry locals. Grey seals. There are about 180,000 of them living

:36:46.:36:52.

around the coast of the UK. They are air breathing mammals just like you

:36:52.:36:57.

and me, and these champion swimmers are perfectly adapted to a life at

:36:57.:37:07.
:37:07.:37:07.

sea. While swimming can be dangerous so, to stay safe, expert instructors

:37:07.:37:17.
:37:17.:37:33.

friends with you? We'll be taking you out here to swim the seals. Come

:37:33.:37:43.
:37:43.:37:50.

down then. -- to swim with the seals. A short five-minute boat ride

:37:50.:38:00.
:38:00.:38:01.

will take the team right to seal central. The seals live here all

:38:01.:38:05.

year round so there is a good chance of spotting one, but our team are

:38:05.:38:11.

hoping for a very close encounter. am worried about the coldness of the

:38:11.:38:20.

water but it will be fine. They are really close, right by the boat. All

:38:20.:38:25.

around basically! It is time to see if the seals will stick around to

:38:25.:38:35.
:38:35.:38:39.

play. Are you ready? Let's go.The temperature is 13 Celsius, about

:38:39.:38:44.

half that of a heated swimming pool, so even in a wetsuit, it is a

:38:44.:38:50.

bit of a shock to the system. The seals are protected from the chilly

:38:50.:39:00.

water by dense fur and a thick layer of fatty blubber. Wild animals are

:39:00.:39:06.

naturally cautious so getting close is never guaranteed, and the rocks

:39:06.:39:14.

for the seals plenty of places to stay out of sight. Now, all the gang

:39:14.:39:24.
:39:24.:39:26.

can do is try to brave the freezing water in -- long enough for the

:39:26.:39:36.
:39:36.:39:36.

inquisitive seals to come and have a look. After an hour-long game of

:39:36.:39:41.

hide and Seek, the seals start to relax and invite the team into their

:39:41.:39:51.
:39:51.:39:58.

underwater world. Our team and finally rewarded with a phenomenal

:39:58.:40:08.
:40:08.:40:48.

thought I saw seaweed underneath and then it moved and it was

:40:48.:40:52.

camouflaged! It is amazing to get that close to an animal that is not

:40:52.:41:00.

domestic. I saw two seals underwater, they are really amazing.

:41:00.:41:05.

It looked to me right in the eye and it was a couple of inches from my

:41:05.:41:11.

face, and our noses nearly touched. It was staring at me. It is probably

:41:11.:41:17.

one of the most amazing things I have ever done. It sounds like Tanya

:41:17.:41:24.

has successfully converted her friends to the world of wild

:41:24.:41:31.

swimming. I hope they will do it again because it really is great.

:41:31.:41:36.

are wild! I would put up with cold water like that have an encounter

:41:36.:41:45.

with a wild seal wouldn't you? Definitely. It is not just seals on

:41:45.:41:55.
:41:55.:41:58.

the coastline, is it? There are loads of fish. Not just fish, way

:41:58.:42:02.

cooler things than that. Some surprising sea life visit our

:42:02.:42:08.

shores. We have 28 different marine mammals in the UK, from the

:42:09.:42:15.

beautiful bottlenose dolphin to the handsome harbour pawpaw use. You may

:42:15.:42:20.

even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a killer whale, or even a

:42:20.:42:30.
:42:30.:42:32.

humpback whale. Then there are the sharks, basking sharks to blue

:42:32.:42:38.

sharks, and I bet you didn't know the largest ever leatherback turtle

:42:38.:42:48.
:42:48.:42:49.

was found in Cardiff Bay. There are also the weird looking sunfish, and

:42:49.:42:59.
:42:59.:43:00.

seahorses. We have one of those species right here in this tank.

:43:00.:43:09.

What species is this? Hippocampus hippocampus. What a groovy name.

:43:10.:43:17.

They don't look like normal fish but they are fish. Yes, they have just

:43:17.:43:21.

evolved to look different. To swim they use their fins on their backs,

:43:21.:43:27.

which vibrate to keep them going forward. Then they have fins on each

:43:27.:43:34.

side of their head which helps them move around and change direction.

:43:34.:43:39.

They have fascinating eyes. Their eyes can move independently of each

:43:39.:43:47.

other so they can look forward and backwards at the same time. That is

:43:47.:43:52.

awesome. And they wrapped their tails around things, that one has

:43:52.:43:58.

wrapped its tail around the ward. Yes, they use them to grip onto the

:43:58.:44:08.

seagrass beds, where they live. stop them floating? Yes, basically

:44:08.:44:16.

trying to camouflaged themselves. What do they eat? Little tiny

:44:16.:44:21.

animals like shrimp and they have a special mouth to suck it up when

:44:21.:44:29.

they go past. Are they endangered in the UK? Seagrass beds are very

:44:29.:44:34.

endangered habitats and because of that they are endangered in the UK.

:44:34.:44:42.

There is a very cool fact about the males. Yes, the males give birth.

:44:42.:44:47.

The female pops her eggs inside the pouch, and then the male will keep

:44:47.:44:55.

those eggs inside his pouch, then hundreds of babies spurt out.

:44:55.:45:01.

is amazing. Thank you, I really love them. Tim, can you say wherein the

:45:01.:45:10.

UK we might be able to find these seahorses? You are going to have to

:45:10.:45:14.

be very lucky to see them. Down in Dorset is where you will see them,

:45:14.:45:23.

but it is potluck. Busting shark -- basking sharks, you can look at the

:45:23.:45:28.

Western coast of the UK. Killer whales, Shetland and the North

:45:28.:45:31.

Scottish Isles will be your best bet. Radzi, what is your favourite

:45:31.:45:37.

animal? Lou Magro probably the humpback whale. Funny you should say

:45:37.:45:42.

that, because the hump that Quayle will be in Southern Ireland in

:45:42.:45:52.
:45:52.:45:55.

November, roundabouts. It is almost 9:45am. That means it is time for

:45:55.:46:04.

Radzi's Crazy Creations. I am very excited. It is going to be

:46:04.:46:09.

a belter. Do you know what you will be doing? You are going to be making

:46:09.:46:17.

your very own rock pool. What?On the rocky shoreline, hiding among

:46:17.:46:21.

the seaweed and stones, there was an undercover world waiting for the

:46:21.:46:29.

tide to turn. On a rock pool ramble, it's easy to find crabs, shrimps,

:46:29.:46:33.

barnacles and fish, all taking cover, ready to pounce on any

:46:33.:46:40.

squabble food that drop into their world. That ready to pounce on any

:46:40.:46:44.

scrap of food. They have to cope with changing conditions and avoid

:46:44.:46:48.

predators and each other until the tide turns to release them into the

:46:48.:46:55.

ocean again. Today you will be making... We have all been on the

:46:55.:47:00.

beach exploring rock pools, today we are making our very own portable

:47:00.:47:04.

personal rock pool. Everything you need is around here - stones,

:47:04.:47:13.

shells, seaweed, sea water, sand. You have got the tags as well. Go!

:47:13.:47:18.

Where has that music come from? That's right! If you were in any

:47:19.:47:24.

doubt about what our wild engineer pirates can do, that is him on the

:47:24.:47:32.

accordion. As you can see, at the very bottom there is a layer of

:47:32.:47:39.

sand. You have stones, seaweed, that provide shelter for the creatures.

:47:39.:47:44.

There is sea water, make sure it is not tap water. That is about it. The

:47:44.:47:48.

whole point is to get up close and personal with the creatures you put

:47:48.:47:56.

in. We want your photographs. If you take a photograph, send it in to us.

:47:56.:48:02.

Our e-mail address is [email protected] If you want advice

:48:02.:48:07.

about... Tim is down, man overboard! If you want advice about how to make

:48:07.:48:17.

your own, go to the website. You can find our instruction page. How much

:48:17.:48:26.

time do we have left? Something seconds! 50 seconds. Tim, you are

:48:26.:48:34.

sitting down already? Nothing ever changes with you! The fourth it is

:48:34.:48:39.

my favourite yet. We have got an aquarium. It has sharks in it. You

:48:39.:48:49.
:48:49.:48:50.

are going to be cleaning that shark tank on the inside! No way!Naomi,

:48:50.:48:59.

yours is coming along nicely. I think Tim needs to do some work. The

:48:59.:49:06.

countdown will be starting shortly. Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four,

:49:06.:49:16.
:49:16.:49:20.

three, two, one. Stop ex-nation Mark -- stop! I would give you eight out

:49:20.:49:27.

of ten, Naomi. Look at the state of Tim's. You just threw it all in. I

:49:27.:49:33.

am not even going to judge this. Here is your cleaning equipment!

:49:33.:49:39.

Let's get you ready for the sharks! I am so glad, I don't know if I

:49:39.:49:43.

could have done that. That sounds proper scary. While Tim gets himself

:49:43.:49:52.

ready, we will go in search of a small surprising seaside animal in

:49:52.:50:02.
:50:02.:50:04.

another instalment of my Wild Life. I am Ben, I am 13 and I love all

:50:04.:50:10.

British wildlife. My favourite type is reptiles, because they are so

:50:10.:50:15.

interesting. When I was little, I really liked dinosaurs. Then I got

:50:15.:50:23.

into reptiles, they were a lot like dinosaurs. This is Darwin. Scrambled

:50:23.:50:33.
:50:33.:50:34.

egg is his favourite food. I have got two leopard geckos. I have two

:50:34.:50:42.

tortoises and corn called Maisie. She is about one and a half years

:50:42.:50:51.

old. I am surrounded by reptiles. They are just great to watch.

:50:51.:50:55.

You might not realise we had them in this country, but they love this

:50:55.:51:00.

habitat. There are lots of places to hide, & is perfect for making

:51:00.:51:05.

boroughs. On my average weekend, the first thing I think when I wake up,

:51:05.:51:11.

oh, let's go and look for some sand lizards. You've got to know

:51:11.:51:15.

whereabouts in the sand dunes to look for them, whereabouts in the

:51:15.:51:23.

sand, what patterns they have and where they like to bask. There is a

:51:23.:51:30.

burrow in there. A sand lizard pulls-macro burrow just looks like a

:51:30.:51:36.

rabbit burrow. Often you can see trucks coming in. Dad, we have got

:51:36.:51:43.

some tracks! It could just be a mouse. Sand

:51:43.:51:47.

lizards don't like to cross open spaces, because they have a lot of

:51:47.:51:51.

predators, like birds of prey. They are really fast, they dart around

:51:51.:51:59.

all over the place. He is great at finding stuff. His eyes are so

:51:59.:52:09.
:52:09.:52:09.

sharp, and his patience is amazing. He perseveres, for sure. It is a

:52:09.:52:17.

pregnant female crab spider. A sand lizard Woody this if it found it.

:52:17.:52:24.

When I first found a sand lizard, it was one of the best feelings ever.

:52:24.:52:28.

You have got to be really concentrated on looking for them,

:52:28.:52:32.

because they are right in the vegetation. There is something

:52:32.:52:42.
:52:42.:52:43.

moving down here. It is bright green. It has come back! If you just

:52:43.:52:51.

come this way... There it is. Right there, just basking. It is great,

:52:51.:52:54.

especially when you see a male, because they are bright green on the

:52:54.:53:01.

side. It feels, when you find a sand lizard, like finding gold or

:53:01.:53:06.

diamonds or something. If you see one, don't try and pick it up or

:53:06.:53:10.

anything. They are really fragile and you could hurt it. It is illegal

:53:10.:53:13.

to pick them up. The best thing to do was just looks through

:53:13.:53:21.

binoculars. Sand lizard became almost extinct because of habitat

:53:21.:53:25.

loss. Then they started to breed them and introduce more, and now

:53:25.:53:29.

there are quite a few all over the country. It is good to see that they

:53:29.:53:37.

are coming back from almost extinction.

:53:37.:53:43.

We are the entrance of the shark tank. Erie would be an

:53:43.:53:49.

understatement. I am feeling very nervous. You are? Excellent and

:53:49.:53:57.

because I am going to have to swim with sharks! Do I have to do this?

:53:57.:54:06.

You are going to have to. You lost the fourth it. Good luck. Good luck.

:54:06.:54:16.

His legs are both in! Wow! Good luck, Tim! His head is under. Oh, my

:54:16.:54:26.
:54:26.:54:32.

so I can't imagine how he must be feeling. Get a cleaning! Put some

:54:32.:54:36.

elbow grease into it. The sharks may not be the biggest that you have

:54:36.:54:41.

ever seen, but there are lots of them. It might look crazy, but it is

:54:41.:54:48.

something the staff here have to do on a weekly basis? Two or three

:54:48.:54:54.

times a week. It is not that scary. The sharks are used to as being in

:54:54.:54:58.

there. They are not bothered at all. They will leave him alone? Wii

:54:58.:55:08.
:55:08.:55:11.

yeah. Get cleaning, Tim! If you can get right down, this sea turtle

:55:11.:55:18.

needs cleaning! No, leave him alone. We have shovel nosed rays,

:55:18.:55:25.

stingrays, bonnet head sharks, bamboo sharks. 11 in total. And

:55:25.:55:29.

three stingrays. They can move pretty fast. You are doing a good

:55:29.:55:39.
:55:39.:55:40.

job. I think he has done well. always steps up to the plate. That

:55:40.:55:50.
:55:50.:56:02.

is so, so is hairy. That so, so boarding, I have ever seen that

:56:02.:56:07.

before. I need to get on that. said, I had a wild adventure last

:56:07.:56:13.

week. I was sitting on a surfboard when seals swam by me and my dad. It

:56:13.:56:21.

was amazing. But don't just brilliant. A few weeks ago I went to

:56:21.:56:25.

the beach with my family, we had a contest about who could jump the

:56:25.:56:35.
:56:35.:56:39.

most ways, and I did 56. Respect! How was that? I turned round at one

:56:40.:56:43.

point, my thing off my back was dangling but I thought it was a

:56:43.:56:48.

shock. Next week we want to know about the animals you might have

:56:48.:56:51.

seen all the adventures you have had deep underground or higher on top of

:56:51.:56:58.

clips. Allah unfortunately, that is all we have had time for. It is time

:56:58.:57:03.

to say goodbye to our special guest, Andy Bubble Chambers and Dave

:57:03.:57:08.

Cornthwaite on the water. Ray and Pamela and Dr Tim.

:57:08.:57:14.

Thank you for having us. And the hand standing sailing club are out

:57:14.:57:21.

on the water. And the audience have been magnificent. Press the red

:57:21.:57:25.

button for Wild Extra and some exclusives for you. Until next

:57:25.:57:35.
:57:35.:57:42.

Saturday, get out, get out and go and cliffs.

:57:42.:57:47.

Welcome to a brand new live and unpredictable show that challenges you to get out and go WILD!

Naomi, Tim and Radzi have packed their buckets and spades and are off to have a wild time at the beach. Naomi discovers that from killer whales to seahorses, some surprising animals call the UK seas their home while Tim tries his hand at some seaside extreme adventures. Our group of Wild Things come nose to nose with seals on a thrilling sea adventure while Ben goes looking for jewels in the dunes. Radzi tries to keep order in the Battle of the Beasties and has yet another Crazy Creation for Tim and Naomi- who will have to suffer the forfeit this week?
