the time you got up, went out and got wild. We are going to look at
how wild things have been throughout the series. We best get cracking.
Where is Wilkinson? Woo hoo!She said she would be here. Sorry, just
dropped in to say hello. Sorry I am feast of incredible adventures,
wildlife, adventure sports and some of your amazing WILD things.
Everything that we can squeeze into one show. Over the last eight weeks
we have had a truly WILD time watching you get up and get active.
We have chosen a personal selection of our favourite moments as well as
the ones you have requested on our website. I have a favourite. When I
went mountain boarding. What about when I went WILD with sled dogs? We
are turning! It is not about us, it is about you, our guests and
audiences. We better get cosy and take a look at some of our wild
been on an epic road trip, travelling the length and breadth of
the UK. We were in Cardiff. Hunstanton. Paignton in Devon.
have come to Belfast activity centre. We have met so many amazing
wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts. From our forest fanatics. Too wet
and wild water pioneers. The urban explorers. And our daring
mountaineers. They have all set the bar so high with wildlife and
adventure escapades. All our wild things have been truly
inspirational. We have been so inspired by our wild things that Tim
and I have told our very own raft. It has taken us hours, how good is
this, Radzi? Is it definitely finished? It doesn't seem that
stable to me. We thought we would get our hands dirty and we are very
confident it is going to work. are so confident, we have named it
Sir Tim and the un-sink a bull, she is ready to sail! -- Sir Tim.
did that happen? I may have forgotten to tied a rope to the wood
properly. Unbelievable, what a failure. Unlike the next group of
WILD things who had a successful mission when they spent the night in
the forest. There are lots of ways to go wild in the UK but one of the
best ways to experience the great outdoors is to go and sleep in it.
Matthew is crazy about camping, he has all begin, he knows will be
skills and he is keen to show his friends how fun it can be come so he
has brought them for a wild woodland sleepover. What Matthew and his
friends don't know is that this is going to be a camping adventure with
a tree top twist. My name is Matt. I don't like reading and writing.
name is Ollie. I don't like sports warned learning. My name is Kieron.
I don't like sport, American football is probably the only sport
I like. My name is Reece. I don't like rugby. It is too muddy. This is
going to be a big challenge, especially for Reece, who is not
keen on heights. Climbing expert Vicky is here to show them the
ropes. Those are going to be your sleeping platforms. I have slept in
the trees before, it is really comfortable. Everyone is ready?
I have to get you into your arm and of ropes and police to haul
themselves up to the top of the heights but halfway up is far enough
for him, so he decides to camp at ground level instead, leaving the
others to push on. How are you up there? It is like flying! There is a
leaf in my nose! We are going up slower than I thought we would be
but it is really fun. It takes almost an hour but the boys make it
to camp just as the sun is setting. They will be spending the next eight
hours suspended here, high above the forest floor. There is the rule of
not looking down, but I love looking down! I think the fact I have
managed to get this high is quite an achievement. It is a strange
sensation. It is like you are flying, floating in midair. It feels
exciting but at the same time, perilous and scary. There is a 50
feet drop underneath me. I can hear what sounds like owls. It is a bit
weird, how quiet it is up here. they nice? Yes. That's good. It's
greeted by a spectacular wake-up call. It is quite a nice view, I can
finally see stuff. It is not as scary. In the night it was quite
quiet but now there are so many different birds just squealing and
making their sounds. It is strange when you wake up when you realise
you are still up in a tree, really high up. Thumbs up, definitely.
is time for our wild things to return to Earth. And Rees is waiting
to welcome them home. It was more fun than sleeping on the ground. It
is a lot more exciting, it is swaying from side to side. It was an
exciting experience and you probably only get to do it once in your life.
I am proud of getting that high. would recommend it to your friends
-- my friends to do something like this. How cool was that? Catching 40
winks in the woods. They are not the only ones who have made a bed in the
forest. Woodlands offer a safe and secure home for an array of animals.
And one bird enthusiasts got the chance to get a closer look at one
have been into wildlife since I was about two. Reptiles are my
favourite, there are so many species of them right here in the UK. What I
really love our birds of prey. At the weekend I volunteer for the
RSPB, a charity dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife.
I am one of their youngest volunteers. I love talking to the
visitors about the importance of riches wildlife. This is the
wingspan of an adult female hawks, it is bigger than you. There is one
bird in particular that I really love, because Hawke. This mighty
predator is one of the biggest birds of prey found in the UK -- the
goshawk. It catches prey in its talons as it flies. Today I am going
on a very special mission. My friend, Andy, from the Forestry
Commission, has invited me to monitor some goshawk chicks.
Unfortunately for Andy, they love nesting at the top of trees. Whilst
I wait on the ground committee he's going to have a look.
-- weight on the ground, he is going is quite high up and there are very
few branches do hang onto, it is quite a job. He is hoping to find
two and a half week old chicks, he will put them into the bag and lower
them down. He will carefully remove the chicks from the nests so they
can be rings. Ringing involves tagging a bird so they can be
monitored in the wild. Andy has put the chicks in the bag and it looks
like they are coming back down again. We should be ringing them any
minute now. Once the chicks are on the ground, we need to work quickly
so they can be returned to where they belong. They are in good
fettle, they seem to be growing well. They have not grown their
adult feathers yet. First we check their overall health, their weight,
and then they are fitted with a chicks, it is amazing. You are only
allowed to do this with a licensed Ringo. With all checks complete, the
chicks go back to the safety of their nests. Hopefully we will see
them as fully grown adults next year. I really enjoyed that, it was
so good to get up close to them. I hope to have the chance to climb the
tree myself one day. What a beautiful place to live, it is
really exciting to think that those little chicks will grow into fierce
winds hunters. It is not just animals who can build a home in the
forest, Tim and Naomi had a go. and join me, this is what you are
going to be making, your very own den. Tim has gone in, you only have
two minutes. Everything you need is somewhere around here in the forest.
Without further ado, we will get them started. Three, two, one, go!
Tim stumbled straightaway, we will pretend we did not see it. If you
want to have a go at making your own den, you can do it in your bedroom,
in the playground, in a living room and use whatever materials you have
got. A blanket, cardboard ox is. My personal favourite is the blanket
and the sofa -- cardboard boxes. Being a man, it is printed in my DNA
that I can make a perfect den. As you can see. Big words! Naomi...
long did your stake to make? More than two minutes! It is going to
take an hour! I am getting the audience involved. Yours is coming
along nicely. Look at this bad boy! We are going to have a water test at
the end of this. You can't sustain a den without having it rain on you.
We have 20 seconds left. 20 seconds until you have to stop making. Ten
seconds. Six, five, four, three, two, one. Stop making! OK. It is
time to get your raincoats on, you will be getting in those dens and
the rain will be pouring. Oh, yes. We will start with Naomi, our
glamorous sister will be pouring the rain. Here comes the water from the
watering can. I can't even get in mine! It is like centrally heated!
O! I am going to give this one to Tim! Yes, I was the champion,
totally deserved that! But not as good as Abbey and Sophie who made an
awesome den in the forest. Ellis has made leaves to make his cosy.
Martin family built this huge shelter. Oliver and Isabella
demonstrated you can make your den indoors. Naomi's forfeit was to
rescue a cat from a tree. You have chosen one that has no branches.
Lest talking, more action. You have to grab it with your hands.
Yes! Before Fitz can be a real challenge but it is good to know
there is always one group in particular to help cheer as alone.
This is our wonderful audience with Radzi! This lot are excited, they
are ready to cheer in all the right we think he! It is quite
astonishing. It was awesome. Unbelievable. Are we all feeling
inspired? Yes, they are. I definitely want to see more of them.
I might have to keep my eye on a few of them. It is your job to try and
look after Radzi, best of luck with that!
Forests are not the only places where you can go wild. Britain is
full of waterlogged areas. They are vital habitat for wildlife and known
as wetlands. Here you can find a very special and rare bird that one
wild thing is spending his weekend is hoping to protect. My name is
Jethro, I'm 14 and I love all British wildlife. On an average
weekend, I feed my budgies each day. Sometimes I have to clean them out
and check on the babies and what is happening with them. What I really
love is helping to protect endangered species of birds. On the
weekends, I like to help my dad out at work. He looks after a very rare
bird, the cream. -- the crane. There used to be basically no cranes in
this part. When I go to school, I wear a special suit. We use this to
stop birds thinking we are humans. Now I have my suit on, I am going to
get some food will stop the use this to feed them and now I can feed the
birds. I am going to have to be quite quiet so we don't scare the
babies. I wash my feet and make sure all the germs are completely gone.
These birds are being raised in captivity. They have never lived in
the wild or had a mum but when they get old enough, they will be
released. I started helping when I was 11 and I helped feed them when
they were young. I help block them to keep them exercising so they
don't get any problems with their legs. They grew about one centimetre
every day. It takes me nearly two months to grow that much. Love
coming here to see how much they have grown. When the birds to learn
to fly, they will try to fly all the time so we want to keep them in this
enclosure. Jethro is heavily involved in walking the birds. They
have to be what every day and he is one of the team who'd help do this.
They actually walk ten miles in their lives. I feel quite proud that
I have helped them without the help of any parents. After they had been
exercised, we take them back to their homes until another day. Today
went well. All the cranes have been walked and they all had good
exercise. One of them went in the water, which is good. I think today
has been pretty good. I have to say, I am so ready to get
out and get active, I am inspired. knew today was going to be good.
am going to teach you to about canoeing. I have picked up some
hints and tips throughout the series. I am pretty much an expert.
Hold the canoe. I need you to hold it steady. I need a good push out to
the edge of the water. With! yet? I haven't got my paddle. That
was not funny! Let us take a look back at a group who got drenched
when they had a go at Wick boarding. Wherever you are in the country,
you're never too far away from Lake reservoir and they are perfect for
getting wet and wild. The Tasha is a sports fanatic and one thing she
loves is getting out on the water. Now it is time her friends got
involved as well. It is time to get out and go wild. If there is one
sport that is particularly difficult to master it is this. The instructor
is here to give helping hand. Do you want to have a go? Yes.While the
girls get ready, a second instructor girls are starting to feel the
pressure. He looked nervous! Are you ready? Let us go. Who is first?
Let's go. I am scared. I think it will be quite exciting, though.
not very good on the water. I'm worried that I will fall over.

on tightly. I don't know if I will be able to do it. It is time for the

other girls to get over their nerves hardest part? When there are big
waves. It was really fun. Would you do it again? Yes.It looks like the
friends are convinced that a day on the water is lots of fun. Anybody
can have a go and love it. One day I might have a go at that run over
there! We went wild! Fresh waters are teeming with so
much fascinating wildlife. You can make your own underwater world back
home. How? With another Radzi crazy creation. Without further ado, let
us get the party started! I said Naomi and Timothy challenged to
create a magnet for whiteness. Their very own magnificent pond. We have
five seconds! Happy with that.Stop your making! The winner is Naomi!
Not a chance! You go and get yourself ready for the forfeit!
Jessica made it really cool pond decorated with disease. Poppy
managed to attract this frog into her back garden. Tim lost this
challenge and he had to face the consequences. If the imposition?
That as current him down. -- let us count him down. Never mind, Tim!
Nice doggy paddle. I think he got a soft landing! Let's say that again.
I wasn't the only ones who got wet. The great British countryside is a
fantastic place to have an epic adventure. But did you know that in
our towns and cities, there are also loads of activities to get involved
in? Just look at these amazing free runners that we met in Torbay. Check
out that level. I would love to have a go at this. Is there a trick you
can show me? Yes. If we come around here. Left foot, right foot. Only a
small jump. Catch on. Here we go, strong in the arms. Yes! I am the
King! A good start, but you will be more -- need more practice to get to
their level. How amazing was that? If you want to have a go, go and
find the experts, get the right to tuition and in a few years, you
could be like this lot. If two wheels is more your thing, why not
try a spot of BMX racing. This BMX team are seriously rads racers. I
could not resist joining in the race. Wait! But these guys were just
too fast. Is everybody as out of breath as me? No, just you, you were
diverse range of animals have been making urban environments their
home. There is a particularly unusual creature that for one group
of wild things had not expected to find living on their doorstep.
Jackson is creepy Crawley crazy and he loves nothing more than looking
after his insect pets. His friends don't share his passion for all
things are rack on it, but they are hate shopping. My name is Jack. I
hate Thai food and big spiders. name is Catherine. I hate rain and
convert aged words. George McGavin, insect expert, has
come along to help them. -- and scorpion in the UK. It only lives
here. There is a wall over there that has a colony of European
scorpions. Who wants to hold one? Let's go scorpion hunting. Scorpions
are nocturnal hunters, meaning the team will have to come back when the
sun goes down. It is dark so the scorpions should be out. You have
all got an old provider that torture we are going to go along this wall
-- you have all got an ultraviolet torch. Your job is to find as many
unmistakable. Have you got one? Look. Look at that. That is
amazing. Isn't it fantastic? Who wants to hold it? The best way of
holding it is to gently hold the tail. The hard parts glow, the soft
parts like a side of the abdomen and between the plates are dark because
that is not made of the same material. All scorpions glow, which
is very convenient as they are nocturnal. He is moving, he is
moving. He has gone up my sleeve. have found some. Look at that, that
is impressive. They are rather nice. There are probably hundreds in this
wall. It is one of the things you hear about that they glow green and
when you see it, it is shocking. was pretty gobsmacked. It was
amazing. It is once-in-a-lifetime. It seems there is no sting in the
tail for this challenge. Jackson and his friends have loved finding one
of the UK's most unusual can be found on our city streets. As
our next wild thing has found out, sometimes you need not look any
all British wildlife. What I really love is looking for the secret side
of nature. I have been taking photos for the last five years and I am
going to share my top tip for catching wildlife in a completely
different way. This is our back garden, now more of a mini nature
reserve. I have decided my mum and dad and family to allow me to have
this part of the garden -- I have persuaded. We have frogs, newts,
toads, dragonfly larvae. In the summer you can hear the dragon flies
buzzing around, which is really nice. Taking good photos is about
trying to look at the world in a different way. One of my favourite
things to do is to try and be more inventive and use household items. I
can't afford underwater housing and things like this so I used this fish
tank, I put my camera in here and load it into the pond so I can get
underwater shots. You really don't need expensive equipment. This is
just my little camera. With my bigger camera I have to carry a big
rucksack but this one can go in my pocket and you can take it wherever.
There is one animal that comes here that is really active at night and
tonight I am going to try to film it. This is actually my Playhouse. I
took it over when I got more into photography. We have this so we are
invisible to wildlife. The foxes are wild animals and they don't hang
around. I'm going to put this camera trap on the fork. I am going to see
if I can get them when they walk through. We have set up a camera
trap and I'm going to go back to the hive to see if I can get some live
views. With wildlife, you can never really count on them to be there, so
we will have to wait and see. When you see a fox, you forget about all
the waiting because you have the privilege of seeing that bit of an
individual. That is the real nice thing about it. If you close your
eyes, it makes your ears keener to sound. Sometimes you can't actually
great. We got a little bit of film, thinking might have gone to the
camera trap so we should get some close-ups of his face. It is amazing
what you can capture with patience and dedication. It was really
successful in the hide and I got some nice film and am going to go
back indoors and have a nice cup of tea. It is Josh!Welcome. What
inspired you to take photos? always used to be into bugs, then
dad bought me a camera and since then I have just got to this level.
Can you give us any tips if everybody at home once to take some
photographs? Get to know your subject, learn their behaviour.
Secondly, be patient. It is not always going up in the first time,
it took me five years to get this sort of photo. Practice makes
perfect, I am sure everyone at home can take pictures like this.
took on board all the hints and tips and have been sending us great
wildlife photography. Jack snapped this cool shot of a frog and two
snails. McAuley got this great close-up shot of a beautiful swan.
Ruth photographed this stunning stag. Sam got an amazing shot of an
elusive badger. And Kai sent in this great image of these two
housemartins. Photography is a great way to connect with the natural
world. It is amazing what you can find living around us. It is. Me and
Radzi love the huge rioting of birds we get in the UK. -- huge variety of
birds. Why not attract them into your back garden with my bird
friendly scarecrow? We will give you two minutes, everything you require
is around here, three, two, one, oh yes! You have a forfeit for the
loser. All I am going to say, you will need to get your skates on for
it. I can't skate!I have all sorts of seeds, monkey nuts, anything that
will attract birds. The crowd are loving this. Five, four, three, two,
one... Stop you're making. It is now judgement time. Looking a bit thin.
He is all right, looked at his smiley face and the seeds. You have
made it very friendly. Tim, it is meant to be friendly! It is a
scarecrow, it is in the title! judgement time, the winner without
doubt is Naomi. Here is Isabel showing you how it is really done.
And Holly made a fantastic bird friendly scarecrow. It is forfeit
time for Tim. Out you come. There he is, look what he is wearing. He has
got to get around the obstacle course and bring the drinks to us.
Three, two, one, go. He is so unsteady on his feet. Be careful, I
am buried Thursday. Give him a cheer! There he goes! O!-- I am
some drinks to us, I don't leave it. I never thought it was going to
happen. Well done! No! No!I am thirsty! We have discovered that
urban environments are a great place to go wild. But there are some
habitats that can prove more inhospitable. Britain's mountains
provide adventure and excitement. Deep underground, caves offer
shelter for intriguing creatures such as bats. We met one wild thing
who is helping to look after the bat and I love all British wildlife. My
favourite is bats. I used to be scared of the dark, but not any
more. Bats are night-time specialists and the only mammal that
can truly fly. I think they are awesome. My weekends are quite
unusual. Because I spend most of my time helping my dad looked after
sick and injured bats. Come on, the least you can do is eat up. The bats
we have not pets, we feed them so they go back into the wild. Not
anyone can pick up a bat. You have to have a licence or training,
because they are rare and epic trek did species. # protected species.
That one can fly! Dad is never too far away, he is registered to care
for bats and I want you to make one -- meet one I have been looking
after. We have had him for two weeks, we are going to exercise him
so we note he can fly and then hopefully tonight we will release
him back into the wild. Woody was found by a neighbour who gave in to
us so we can look after him. We exercise him to make sure he is
ready. I use my bat detector to check on his calls, known as
echolocation. If he is not a co-locating properly, he won't be
able to hunt and might not survive. -- if he is not echo locating. It is
great to see he can fly really good cos it means we can release him back
into the wild, so we might be doing that night. Dad has given Woody the
all clear, we are off to the park to release him. I am a little bit sad
but I am more excited to see him be released back with his family. I'm
going to release him near to where he was found. What is even better
for him is, I can already see some bats flying around. But I'd already,
that is a good sign. Shall we do it? We should be good to go. Goodbye!
There he goes, up above our heads. It is good to see him back in the
wild. Yes, really good. Goodbye! Is attributed to all you wild things
across the UK, we tried to build a raft but it didn't work. We tried to
go canoeing but you ruined it for me. We decided to work as a team and
we are going to attempt to climb this. Let's get up there. It is a
bit wobbly! Radzi, help Naomi. discovering to try and help you up.
Trust me, I have got you. Yes, Tim! I tried to pretend I was helping but
I did absolutely nothing there! watched the gymnastics yesterday!
All, amazing! Are you all right? have been more comfortable, to be
honest! This is a bad idea. I have gone the wrong way! Yes, we are one
person away. Shall I climb up one of you? Are you sure? Go on, Naomi!
Yes! We were wild! It shows what teamwork can do. Just like this
bunch of wild things who were so courageous when they braved the
wettest weather and strongest winds and climbed to mega heights.
The Lake District in northern England is not just famous for its
water, it also has some of the most stunning vertical landscapes found
anywhere in the UK. Making it a great place to go wild. 11-year-old
Grace is a keen climber and a regular visitor to her local indoor
climbing wall but today she is heading for the hills to get a taste
of climbing in the great outdoors. She has brought some friends along
to try it, too. My name is Chris. -- grace. My name is Alice. I don't
like sharks. My name is Willow. I don't like fighting with my family.
My name is amber. I don't like sharks. My name is Julie. I don't
like spiders. The goal for the gang is to reach the summit of this hill.
Adobe 600 metres, it is one of the highest point in England so the
instructor is getting them out with plenty of safety gear. This
certainly won't be an average walk in the hills. They have come to a
slate mine to try and very special climbing course. This is where it
begins. Grace, you have brought your friends. This is like a road over
the mountains. There is only one golden rule, never be standing with
both of these in your hands like this. Take one hand to change over.
When you come to the junction one hand, you take off and swapped over
and with the same hand you carry on with the next one. OK? Now you are
excited. Are you up for this? think it will be a really good
experience but I am still a little nervous. I am really excited but
nervous at the same time. I am looking down and seeing how far down
it is. Brilliant. It is weird how high you are and how nervous you are
when you get into it. It uses a series of cables, runs and ladders
that allows complete beginners to take on some serious mountaineering.
It is a very safe way to climb but that doesn't stop it being scary.
Oh, that was awesome! So far, so good, but as the girls continue up
the mountain, the rain clouds begin to close in. Well done, girls, you
got past the first section. We have a few little treats for you in the
next section. It is more exposed and a little bit more scary. Are you up
for it? Yes!Excellent. Jill is not kidding about its being scary.
First, the girls had to cross a sheer overhanging cliff face in the
driving rain. This is seriously wild. But the next challenge is even
more extreme, a wire bridge strung over 100 metres of thin air. Oh, I
am bouncing! It would be bad enough in the sunshine but in high winds,
this takes real guts. Don't keep screaming! The girls have been
declining for three hours but they still have one obstacle left, and
massive cargo net. By now, the reason is practically horizontal. --
the rain. These girls deserve some serious respect.
Despite the appalling weather, the team has made it all the way to the
top of the mountain. Even if host of our filming gear has not. That is
it, the camera has stopped working. The conditions are so bad. The view
may not be immense today but the achievement is. That was, girls.

again, I would. It is a really good experience because I got to do lots
of challenges and it was amazing. went wild!

You have been anything. Without you, It's a really exciting and thrilling
experience. It was an exciting experience and one that I will only
do once in my life. One of the best things I have ever done. We went
wild! Wild! Wild! Top work, excellent effort! Sadly, we have
come to the end of the show but we must say a huge thank you to all
across the UK. It has been emotional but it is goodbye from me.
goodbye from me, too. Coming up next week, one Marshall. Until we see you

wild happen every single week. Sometimes it takes us a few goes to
Welcome to a brand new live and unpredictable show that challenges you to get out and go WILD!
