here in Leeds. It is the summer holidays! Over the last seven weeks,
we have travelled the length and breadth of the country to hopefully
inspire you to get off your so far and get active. Today we are in
Leeds. This week, we want to know what adventure sports you would love
to try out this summer. Get in touch. ?, open them. There it is.
Send us your comments and we will read them out. We are not just here
on our own. We have brought along are very trusting, very lovely crew.
You might have noticed the audience is a bit bigger than normal. Amongst
them, we have our favourite man here, it is Radzi. They could not be
much more excited, and later on it will be the battle of the beasties
grand final. The winner will get this. Flattery will get you nowhere,
but you look awesome. Without further ado, are very special guest,
he has brought along is displayed team, it is the legend that is Terry
Price. We have a whole host of creatures coming up. All of that and
all of this. I head to the UK's biggest waterfall for my greatest
ever wild challenge. That looks extreme. We take to the beach and
learn how to harness the wind. meet a girl dedicated to helping
to get down? It will all be revealed when you watch the actual film full
of I cannot wait. There is a bird that lives around here that is
considered to be one of the most intelligent on the planet. Have you
got any idea what it is? The Raven. How did you get that? It is right
there. The Raven is the king of the crows. It used to be in decline in
the UK but in recent years the numbers have exploded. This
acrobatic flyer is known for problem-solving skills. In Japan,
they have even been known to use the traffic to their advantage. They
drop foods onto a busy road and act -- wait for cars to crack nuts. In
the bird world they are really top of the class. We are delighted to be
joined again by this bird specialist with his very own Raven. Years three
years old. He is beautiful. Look at him looking at us. They have
incredible eyesight. Can they see in all directions? Yes. They can look
in both directions. What is it about ravens that is special to you?
are intelligent and fun to look after, and cheeky as well. They make
a lot of noise is, don't they? you see them flying, you will always
know because they have a very throaty call. If you hear that
noise, it will probably be a Raven. Definitely. They live all around the
world, don't they? Yes, they have adapted to all environments. You
find them around the world. You say he is clever. We want to prove how
clever he is. We have a series of experiments set up. What is the
first one? He has a very special object that he knows. If I say,
object that he knows. If I say, where is your stone? There it is.
Let's try this one. He is so strong. He is nearly lifting his own body
with his beak. What is this one. This is the string. He needs to get
the food inside. It is on the end of a very long piece of string so he
knows he can get his reward by pulling it out. That is so good.
What is this one? He needs to work out how to get the food from inside.
He is brilliant. He is so good. I will give him a piece of fruit. He
does not miss a trick. Fingers crossed. Are you ready?You are
fantastic. From one brainy bird over to some not so brainy boys. I did
not realise ravens were that clever. He was really strong and extremely
clever. Can you believe he could do all those things? Now I cannot.
Ravens are probably one of my favourite animals. Mine is probably
the duckbilled platypus. What is yours? Tortoise.Have you seen any
in the wild? We have seen some but we don't have any photographs.
sure you get a picture of it because I would love to see it. If you have
any photographs of wildlife, send them in to us. Not just wildlife, if
you have been out there shredding, getting ridiculous, we want to see
those photos. If you have been out there, get those pictures to us.
Attach your parent or guardian's phone number so we can call them.
actually have a photo right here. This is one of our watchers caving.
This is another wake boarding. have a comment saying they would
love to try hang gliding because it would feel like you're flying.
would indeed. When it comes to adventure we are at the front of the
adventure we are at the front of the queue. It felt just like that when I
the UK in search of adventure and for the final show I implying
something epic -- I am planning something epic. I am in the Scottish
Highlands, home of mammoth mountains and giant locks, and I am
undertaking my biggest challenge yet. And going to abseil down the
highest waterfall in the UK. This is big. Seriously break. It is located
on an isolated minute and -- Mt miles from the nearest road. Nothing
about this challenges easy, especially the name of the
waterfall. It means waterfall of the beautiful tresses. I am thinking it
is a waterfall of impending doom. To take on this heavyweight of the
waterfall world I am going to do a little bit of training. We have an
abseil expert. First of all, the most important thing is how do you
pronounce this? It is beyond me. As an expert, where
would you rate this on a one to ten scale? Nine.That is pretty high for
a beginner. That is as high as you would want to go. Luckily, you are
the expert. Let's get it under way. I'm ready to be taught. Teach me.
Before he sends me off to what sounds like certain doom, he is
taking me through the basics on a slightly smaller abseil. Just to add
to the drama, it is starting to rain. Of course, when we do the main
waterfall tomorrow it will be torrential. Putting all my faith in
the man up there who is now lowering me down. At this point I feel safe
so I'm going to take control here. I am lowering myself to the bottom.
raining heavily like this because it is preparing me for tomorrow when I
will be abseiling down something similar to that only 200 times
bigger and the rain will be a pretty cold and it will get pretty
wet but I have brought my umbrella. Time to load the boat for the first
waterfall is to cross a giant lake and hike up the mountain. Yes, that
is the easy way. Have been on the board for ten minutes, heading to
the waterfall and it has dawned on me how big everything is. Starting
to feel very insignificant and small. We have landed. We come off
the boat, get the kit ready, all that is left to do is get up there.
As we head up the valley I get first sight of the Herculean task that
awaits me full is not she is coming into view now, and it is absolutely
massive. This is the UK's highest waterfall, just over 200 metres. It
is higher than Niagara Falls, Big Ben, the London eye, 50
double-decker buses. If that waterfall was flat on the ground,
Usain Bolt would run it in 19.86. It is not, it is a waterfall, and there
is no way he could run down it. As countryside strolls go, this is a
walk on the wild side. It is definitely worth the effort. Look at
Apology for the loss of subtitles for 51 seconds
that. What have you. What a view. You need to stay tuned for part two.
Now it is time to turn our attention to the little critters that live
under our feet. It is time for make some noise. They are excited
and that means they will be getting their hands on the golden beastie.
Feast your eyes on that duty. Tim is in the lead with four contenders in
the closure -- enclosure. Mail me as just behind. If Tim wins this week
he walks away with the trophy. It could not be much closer, who are
you bringing to the table? I have enlisted the help of ants. And what
about you? The housefly.This is going to be a good one. It is time
for around one. Special powers. Flies can walk upside down on the
ceiling. You can even walk up a window by secreting a sticky
substance from their feet which allows them to define -- defy
gravity just like I am doing. not because you're here would be
doing this. Ants, relative to their size, have the largest brain of any
insect. It has been calculated that they have more processing power in
their brain than the computers used in the first Apollo space missing.
-- mission. 66% of our housefly's brain is devoted to site -- seeing.
They have 4000 lenses in every eye. They can see in every direction.
That is the end of row number one. Who does not want to walk up walls
and ceilings? Taking the early lead, it is the housefly. It is time for a
row number two. I am fast but the ant is faster. Talk about sprinting,
it is faster than Usain Bolt. If humans could run as fast as the ant,
we would be running as fast as a racehorse. Houseflies are incredible
flyers. Their reactions are 12 times quicker than ours which is why it is
so difficult to catch one. You do not have fast reactions do you. Ants
are incredibly strong. They can lift up to 100 times their own weight
with their mouth. That is like me carrying rugby squads in my mouth.
You're not the only one with magic fingers. The reason flies crash into
things is because their bodies are covered with hair is which allowed
them to avoid object is easily. Nobody has questioned how nimble the
flyers but it is not a blemish on the ant so we are going into the
final round, the most important round. It is the knockout round.
is my turn to start. The ant has two stomachs, one for itself and one to
regurgitate food. Flies do not have eyelids. And sprays acid onto its
enemies to defend itself. Flies find and taste food with their feet.
can survive and swim underwater for two weeks. Flies do not have teeth
so they spit on their food to break it down and then they suck it up.
That is disgusting. People are going to be eating their breakfast at home
and you have said that. I'm sorry, everyone. And so tiny, but it has
been estimated there are 10,000 trillion of them. If you do all of
them in a bucket on a set of scales it would weigh the same as the
entire human population. That is the end of battle of the beasties for
this series. It is no decision time. The winner and overall champion is
unexpected. I am not prepared at all for this. I would like to thank all
of the people who have helped bring. Congratulations. While the
programme has been on air, you have been sending in your comments.
Someone would really love to go skydiving, I think that is a bit
ambitious. Ballet rocks. One person said they would like to do a sport
that had everything in it so they do not miss out on anything. Thank you
to my lucky underpants. I'm going to cherish this for the rest of my
life. Lets meet a man who has his fair share of trophies but he can do
things on his scooter you thought were impossible. He is regarded as
one of the best in his world. And he is with us. Talk about an entrance.
Welcome to Wild. As we saw in the film, you have lots of world firsts
to your name. It is insane what has been thrown down on these. Difficult
tricks, but with plenty of practice you can master it. What is the most
difficult? The double black flip -- backflip. It is pretty scary. There
will be thousands of kids at home. What is the best way to get into
this? There are hundreds of parks in the UK. Get yourself on a scooter,
head out. It is a great sport to get into. Safety first. You're ready to
go. Give us a demonstration. course. That is a trick from the BMX
scene. There is Charlotte proving it is not just the sport for boys. Epic
staff. It would not be wild if I did not have a go. I want to have a shot
at dropping in. Can you teach me? It is as simple as lean forward and
commit. I cannot stop. That was pretty fast. I want to get you more
involved. We will know you on this ramp, and I would jump 0BU. Is it
safe? I do it all up the time. Let's go for it. He is a trained
professional. There he goes. Stabler... Absolutely not. We
Belleek, what Belleek Wilkinson. Thanks to you all very much.
that persuaded you to try something If there is one thing we have lots
of, it is coast line. From astonishing cliff faces, too
generous, sandy beaches, there are tons of opportunities are adventure
and it is a perfect place for going wild. Matthew, loves nothing more
than being in or around the water. Windy days like this are ideal for
sport on land that harness the power of nature. He has brought his
friends along to get involved. It is time to get out and go wild.
name is Matthew. I don't like rugby or eggs. Mining is Ben. I don't
like being put under pressure, because I do get things. My name is
Peter. I don't like spicy food and rugby. Matt he wants to introduce
his friends to the exciting world of kite buggy. He knows just the
I am Louise and I will be your instructor to date. You will learn
how to fly the kites first and then we will get it you into the bodies,
and then we will learn from scratch how to do it together. Let's go.
This is an extreme sport, so the boys need to know they have the
right safety equipment. We are ready to go, Matthew, lead
If we line up in a row here. Before they get in, they have to
learn how to tame the kite. In a high wind, these power kites are
strong enough to lift them off the ground, so they have a tough job
ahead of them. They are keen to get stuck in, but only after Matthew
has shown them how it is Duns. Turn left. Just left, and right.
Well done, Mac users will stop. Matthew is doing brilliant.
Obviously the wind is quite powerful. You have to stop its
hitting the ground. It looks OK, but probably a lot harder than it
looks. Very strong wind. First time flying a kite will start keep it
nice and still at 12, when you are ready. Now left. How does it feel?
Is it tricky to start with? Yes. Quite a lot to concentrate on.
Excellent. Well done. They seem to have got the hang of
that. Let's see how they get on when Louise takes it up a notch.
Now you have learned how to master the kites, downwind, left and right.
Now we are already to gets in. We will do a race down wins all the
way to these flags. Are you ready? -- downwind.
Keep it moving. When I was moving, it felt pretty bumpy because there
is a lot of holes in the sand. But I could feel the wind because I was
going fast. When you are moving, it feels really fast. It is a good way
to fly kites. I think my mates did really well and I think they should
do it in the future because they are very good at it. You made it
over the line, you will do very well. Have you had a good day?
emerge from their burrows into the bright sunshine. After a spot of
some winning they spend the rest of the day foraging for insects and
other tasty treats. Working as a team one member of the gang always
stands guard to watch out for predators makings weeks for all the
others if they sensed danger. Making them the sun loving, team building
miniature marvels of the desert. And this is Matthew and J. Mac you is
three years old. -- Maku. There are so much going on, you can see how
nosy he is. He is looking at the sky to see if there are birds flying
over. Hello, how are you doing? You said he stands on his hind legs,
that is the familiar meerkat pose. What tries to hunt them which they
are looking out for predators. usually have one looking out for any
danger. It could be an aerial attack, or maybe the jackal on the
grounds of venomous snakes. What are they foraging for? They like to eat
scorpions. If they have got babies in the group they will reach in and
grab the Scorpion, they might get stung. They will bite the sting off
and they will give the scorpion to the babies to practice their hunting
skills. That is amazing. We are not in Africa, we are in Leeds. They
like to do a bit of sunbathing. the sun comes out a bit more they
might stand up. Pop him on your hand there and see if he stands up.
you go. Maybe he will not do that because it is live TV. Look at that.
They love foraging for food. They are inquisitive. Shall we try an
experiment? They liked little holes, they look for insects. What is
inside there? There are no animals in there. Nothing to eat. Thank you
for coming along. Fantastic to meet you. Naomi, how cool.
I love meerkats, how cute. Our next guests are not so cute. Repair
yourselves. We are about to make your skin will. -- crawl. We have
heard the phrase good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite.
Have any of us taking it seriously? They do exist. They are bloodsuckers
and can live in crack and crevice around furniture. We need to call on
the help of our own bug expert, Doctor Tim Cockerel. What is happy
doing? -- Hacker. I was dreaming about Sue Cook. This is Tim
Cockerel. Like Mike catchphrase. has got a treat. He is a bug expert.
We have got a part of red bugs. -- part of bed bugs. What kind of
insects are they? A lot of insects get called bugs. They are a bit like
aphids that live in the garden. Whereas aphids live on the sap of
the plans, these ones suck blood. hope I have not got any in my bed.
Do they really live in our beds? They are not very common in the UK,
they merely live-in hot, tropical, unit countries but sometimes they
live in the UK. But you would see them. They get as big as the mail on
your little finger. Do they have them in Wigan? How do they end up in
our houses? If you put your suitcase on the bed, they crawl in, and they
hitch a lift back over to England and they go into your bed. Like
Cleethorpes. Not quite. They live all round the world. All around the
world. They are not that common in the UK. There was a picture of one
over there. You are a bug expert, you love your insects, is there
anything you admire. They have got the shape -- they have got a shout
mark -- a sharp mouth. They are massive. Is that actual size?
got a present, there is one for your bed. It is hideous. Let's talk about
something I can get involved in, please. Do they jump? They don't.
Can they swim? They can't swim. Acrobatics? Nothing like that.
right, time to go back to the Highlands of Scotland and see how
Tim did get on when he came face-to-face with the UK's highest
waterfall. Your hair is as dry as I Round two, here we go, in the blue
corner from Scotland, weighing in a Brazilian tonnes of water, it is the
UK's highest water hole -- waterfall. And weighing in at 88
kilos from Birmingham, Tim Allwood. This is about as full on as
abseiling gets. We have got a small army to keep everybody say. Starting
to dawn on me now just how extreme this is. I am really nervous. After
climbing all the way to the top of this monster I cannot back out now.
It is time for one last chat with my abseil Baru. Kitted up, ready to go
full stop any last words of advice? Just enjoy it. It is easy to get
focused on the roads and safety, the you are in a beautiful area. I am
nervous but I am ready. Let's go. You should go first. One little slip
me luck. I have got to do it, just for myself. This really is adventure
on an epic scale. It is time to this, the director said do loads of
chat on the way down. I have lost the ability to speak. The waterfall
is so big we need to make regular stops to change rates will stop --
to change ropes. We are over halfway down and I am starting to get into
me. In full flow millions upon millions of tonnes of water are
pushed over the waterfall every day so being this close is a phenomenal
experience. Yes, this is the best! I have crossed locks, rocks, mountains
and 200 metres of slippery rock face and I have reached the base of this
force of nature. Yes! I'm alive! Nice walk. That was absolutely
amazing. That is just unbelievable to stand here. There is really only
one way I can celebrate. It has gone there is no such thing as a neck --
epic adventure they have never been should be very proud of yourself .
Epic adventure right here in the UK. I am afraid even our next guests
will leave you standing. They can climb up vertical surfaces and hang
upside down with no problem full stop -- with no problem at all.
Geckos are found in warm climates and they have tape adds that allow
them to climb smooth surfaces in seconds. We have some beautiful
crested geckos right here for stop over on to Jonathan. They are
crested geckos and they are absolutely the most beautiful geckos
in the world. So soft, web do they come from? New Caledonia off the
north-east coast of a stranger. -- Australia. What do you love about
them? Every single thing, the way they look, their eyes, the way they
move, they can do all kinds of cool things. They change colour as well.
This one is called Flame because at night she turns the beautiful bright
orange colour. During the day she is quite pale but at night she is
fantastic. We have a stick here as we mentioned their tape adds that
help them climb. They can climb up They can even eat their backside
skin. If you could have one superpower of these lovely
geckoplu-mac, which would it be? Definitely walking up walls. That
would be cool. Now it is my favourite part of the show. This is
the very last, and it is all about helping butterflies. There are more
than 50 different species of butterfly in the UK. In recent
years, they have been in serious trouble. A combination of weather
and loss of habitat has led to a drastic decline in numbers. People
are being urged to help by joining the big butterfly count. It is
happening all over the country right now. We came up with another way to
give these beautiful creatures are helping handfuls of how smelly are
my armpits? You will be making a butterfly feeder. You have two
minutes. Everything you require is here. Start now. As they begin, I
will explain how you do this. First of all, you start off with a piece
of card and then you cut out the shape. I have chosen a butterfly,
you can choose anything. I have followed it with paint. As soon as
it is dry you use golf tees. You press them over the feeder, it took
them into the grass. At the end of it, there is a shape, and we pouring
sugar water. Butterflies love that. That will attract them into the
garden full of there is lots of information. If you want tips about
how to make the perfect one, go to the website. There is instruction is
for you. How is it going? Fantastic. This does not look like a
butterfly. You clearly know nothing. This is pretty. If you put these in,
the butterflies will come along. Need to make the sugar water.
Another thing to mention our use these pens to give them a helping
hand. You can draw circles with them. If I could open it I would
sure you but I cannot. That would help to go the butterflies there to
make their lives easier. I believe there are 20 seconds left on the
clock. We are mixing the sugar water. That looks nothing like a
butterfly. We will count down. Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four,
three, two, one, stop. It is judgement time. I have done your
face. Now it is forfeit time. Who will receive it. Yours is actually
pretty rubbish, I think. I think yours is really nice. Normally, you
will be decided -- deciding who to do the forfeit, but we have decided,
who thinks you should do the forfeit? It is a landslide. Put this
on. While you get yourself ready, we wildlife. My passion is helping my
mum with her job of looking after sick animals. We help the animals so
they can finally be released into the wild. The place that my mum
works as the RSPCA. It is a charity dedicated to animal welfare. I
cannot be an official volunteer until I am 16 but I love helping my
mum at the centre. There are lots of reasons why animals are brought
here. They can be sick, injured, orphaned, they are the main reasons.
We try hard not to handle the animals but I love feeding them,
especially the ducklings. I like them because they remind me of
spring, the weather changing. They are just happy. It is a lot of hard
work looking after older patients. J ducklings like these, to some of the
larger, hungrier residents. Some of these seals have been here for four
months, from December and January. In that time, they have recovered
from their injuries and trauma. I help my mother to round up the seals
that are ready to go back into the wild. 340. 336. Now it is just a
question of getting them in the van. We take them to release site near to
where they are. It is good they are getting back into the wild and they
are where they should be. They take them out of the stretcher and then
they should just make their way into the river and get taken out by the
tide. They shuffle along. They get used to it. They keep on looking
back, like, where are you? It is nice to see them actually go into
the water. This is a great one for us, she had been here for so long,
we did not know whether she would make it, but she looks fabulous and
it is really nice to get her back out there. She probably cannot
remember being out in the wild. She has been in since she was a tiny
little pup. She has got her head out of the stretcher. She is keen.This
is the best bet, releasing the seals. Amazing. What a great when --
way to spend your spare time. Normally we would be doing the
forfeit, but Radzi is doing it. look absolutely ridiculous. Look at
the state of me. You are going to take part in a cycling proficiency
test. Please bring in his bike. Where is it? We have reversed the
steering on the bike, so if he goes left, the bike will go right. What
is wrong with this thing? Is it broken? Can you ride a bike?OK, we
will get you another bike. Write that. You have 30 seconds to get
Throughout the sure you have been sending in your photos and your
comments. Thank you so much. Here is a lovely picture. This is Alex, who
loves watersports. This is lonely, age six, claiming on an outdoor wall
in the Lake District. We have also had comments. Someone said they
would like to go rafting because they have the challenge of making
the raft and then sailing it. We will have a shot at that next week.
This person said they would like to go ice skating and rock climbing. I
love my exercise. Who doesn't? You look amazing. You stitched me up.

week. Hopefully it will inspire you to get active. All That Is left is
to say a massive thank you to the lovely people who have hosted us

Welcome to a brand new live and unpredictable show that challenges you to get out and go WILD!
Naomi, Tim and Radzi join the CBBC Live in Leeds weekend, for another hour of fast paced and unpredictable wildlife and wild adventure! Naomi meets an array of animals, one in particular with a talent for picking pockets, while Tim tests his nerves when he heads over the edge and abseils down the highest waterfall in the UK. The Wild Things take to the beach, as Cornish lad Matt introduces his friends to the extreme sport of Kite buggying and 14-year-old Abi gets hands on as she helps her mum rehabilitate sick and injured British wildlife back to health. But that's not all. It's the final of the Battle of the Beasties, so who will deliver the winning blow of the series? And with a Crazy Creation in the mix, anything could happen in this week's forfeit!
