Its BBC Children in Need weekend and

this is the Big Welsh Show. Here are

0:00:140:00:19

your hosts, Lucy Owen and Josie

d'Arby.

0:00:190:00:23

Hello and a very warm welcome to our

special Sunday show, I'm Lucy Owen.

0:00:370:00:42

And I'm Josie d'Arby. We have

fantastic guests to keep you

0:00:420:00:46

entertained for the next hour, and

we will look at how your money has

0:00:460:00:51

supported projects across Wales over

the past 12 months.

To get us under

0:00:510:00:55

way, our BBC Children in Need Choir

here in Wales is going to using a

0:00:550:00:58

special arrangement of the Jackson

five classic" I'll Be There."

0:00:580:01:06

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:260:04:30

Ladies and gentlemen, our Children

in Need Choir. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:340:04:39

Well done all of you, and we will

hear more from our wonderful choir

0:04:390:04:43

later in the evening.

Also coming up

in this BBC Children in Need 2-1,

0:04:430:04:50

music from a popular vocal group,

they represented team Tom in the

0:04:500:04:57

final of the voice earlier in the

year, Into The Ark. And

0:04:570:05:08

Pembrokeshire born Betsy.

Later, we

have a rather special performance

0:05:080:05:12

from a man many of you will have

seen last week frantic DIY SOS for

0:05:120:05:18

Children in Need and transforming a

project that supports young people

0:05:180:05:21

in care in Swansea. Tonight, he

swaps his hard hat for a guitar and

0:05:210:05:26

microphone. Nick Knowles is here to

sing specially for us.

We really to

0:05:260:05:31

hear that.

And we will look at how the money

0:05:310:05:35

raised by Children in Need has been

helping young people across Wales.

0:05:350:05:39

World Champion boxer Lee Selby and

actor Richard Mylan and Michael

0:05:390:05:44

Sheen, yes, I did say Michael Sheen,

have been to visit some projects,

0:05:440:05:49

and meet children that have been

helped over the past year by money

0:05:490:05:52

you donated.

It's a packed show.

With no further ado, we ask the

0:05:520:05:58

voice of rugby Eddie Butler to do a

quick round-up in his own inimitable

0:05:580:06:01

style of some of the ways you have

been raising money for Children in

0:06:010:06:05

Need this year.

0:06:050:06:08

Already, Mr Bear, then with great

care, get set and go.

0:06:120:06:17

Walking the walk, the 14 locks that

step down towards Newport.

0:06:170:06:25

Brothers and sisters, mind the

blisters.

0:06:250:06:29

Uphill through woodland, windswept

on the Gower at three miles an hour

0:06:290:06:36

and softly land upon the sand.

Fund raising, hair raising, inch by

0:06:360:06:42

inch, brick by brick, don't look

down, Elaine, it will make you sick.

0:06:420:06:50

There, grab yourself a bear, page is

of a bear. Spin of a few calories

0:06:500:06:55

and put them back on here. Biking,

baking and bouncing in the zone, all

0:06:550:07:04

walking, the bigger the better, the

longer the conga

0:07:040:07:08

walking, the bigger the better, the

longer the conga. A game of footy,

0:07:080:07:10

to pull on the shirt, to where the

skirt.

0:07:100:07:13

The scouts will be out looking for

talent. The go it alone sing along.

0:07:130:07:27

Seaside past time, pulling a truck,

good luck.

0:07:270:07:30

Andy Powell, that's it, the one in

the golf buggy.

0:07:300:07:42

Just as trim, here in the gym, a

sort of stream or strip, let it rip.

0:07:420:07:49

And a longer mock, the full lock

must say goodbye to the hair for the

0:07:490:07:54

bear. To you and all your madcap

schemes, whatever the themes, thank

0:07:540:08:00

you for taking the time, taking the

lead, to do all this for Children in

0:08:000:08:06

Need.

0:08:060:08:07

Thank you to everyone that has

raised money for Children in Need

0:08:110:08:14

this year, and to all of you that

donated. The UK total on Friday

0:08:140:08:18

night was a record-breaking

50,000,160.

0:08:180:08:29

Amazing, thank you so much. It is

not too late if you would still like

0:08:310:08:34

to contribute.

0:08:340:08:36

I'm sure many of you will have

watched the incredible DIY SOS, The

0:08:580:09:04

Million Pound Build the Children in

Need. This year, the team were given

0:09:040:09:07

one of their biggest challenges to

date, to build a centre and

0:09:070:09:11

supported housing for young people

in care and leaving care in Swansea.

0:09:110:09:15

Look who I have spotted in our

audience, Mr DIY SOS himself, Mr

0:09:150:09:20

Nick Knowles. Welcome to Wales.

I am

excited to be here. It is nice to be

0:09:200:09:24

back.

We will chat later in a few

moments about what it is you guys

0:09:240:09:28

did for the project. But let's have

a reminder of the challenge you and

0:09:280:09:32

the team were given.

When we met them and the team at The

0:09:320:09:37

Roots Foundation, they were doing

their best to support young people

0:09:370:09:40

in care, but their old hut was up to

the job. There was only one thing

0:09:400:09:43

for it.

Three... To...

One... . 800

volunteers attempted the impossible

0:09:430:09:52

by undertaking the biggest single

bill we've ever done.

0:09:520:09:56

And we've only gone and done it. An

epic feat of engineering and design

0:09:580:10:04

that will give Emma the potential to

help thousands of children over the

0:10:040:10:08

coming years.

0:10:080:10:11

It's amazing.

Your new home to do what you need to

0:10:150:10:19

do.

My, gosh, it is more than I

thought it would be.

0:10:190:10:24

We are so overwhelmed with your

kindness, I am so touched. And on

0:10:240:10:28

behalf of the team, we want to tell

you that you are going to make a

0:10:280:10:31

huge difference to people's lives.

Nick, what an amazing project.

We

0:10:310:10:37

were sitting here thinking how

ridiculous and epic it was, and it

0:10:370:10:41

is huge. To do the garden at the

back, we had to move 1500 tonnes of

0:10:410:10:46

stone. It was a marsh will stop to

get a garden out there, and the guy

0:10:460:10:52

from the local quarry, £280 per

time. He gave us 500 tonnes P. Three

0:10:520:10:59

kilometres of wood to make the

building, three kilometres on

0:10:590:11:02

cladding for the outside.

Huge. The

people of Swansea came and supported

0:11:020:11:08

you.

Extraordinary. 200 people a

day. 600 or 700 in total, swapping

0:11:080:11:14

and changing, from Swansea, south

Wales, from all over Wales, and

0:11:140:11:19

indeed, from the whole of the UK.

They came from all over to make it

0:11:190:11:23

happen. We thought it was an

important project for Emma and her

0:11:230:11:26

team. She is amazing, she does

amazing things for young people.

You

0:11:260:11:30

are here with Emma from the project,

The Roots Foundation. What does this

0:11:300:11:34

project mean to people impacted by

it?

I think it's going to be huge,

0:11:340:11:40

actually. The many young people,

they feel isolated, lonely, they

0:11:400:11:46

have mental health issues, there's

physical issues for young people. To

0:11:460:11:49

have what we think is a team of a

family around them, it will help of

0:11:490:11:54

confidence and self-esteem. To know

that so many people came forward,

0:11:540:11:58

and it was hundreds of people. We

are still in touch with many people

0:11:580:12:02

today, and they come back and forth.

When we watched the broadcast on

0:12:020:12:05

Wednesday, they came in and watched

it with us. They are now part of our

0:12:050:12:10

family, and it is amazing.

If you

think about 80,000 children are in

0:12:100:12:14

care, very often, through no full of

their own. When they come out, they

0:12:140:12:27

are dropped. Is it one in four or

something like that which are

0:12:270:12:29

homeless? It is ridiculous for the

kids that have been dealt the worst

0:12:290:12:32

hand starting in life. We often give

more care rather than less. I will

0:12:320:12:35

say, do still need funding to keep

going. And it is amazing work.

We

0:12:350:12:38

have a new building, so we need to

find running costs for the building,

0:12:380:12:40

and that is important. We want the

legacy to continue, these people

0:12:400:12:43

worked so hard on it, they need it

to continue for the foreseeable

0:12:430:12:47

future. It is very important.

I know you will continue your

0:12:470:12:50

relationship with Children in Need.

Stick around because we are going to

0:12:500:12:56

get Nick singing.

We haven't given

her the choice. Otherwise, she would

0:12:560:13:01

be up and out of here. She wanted to

be sat next to Charlie Sheen...

0:13:010:13:06

Michael Sheen.

Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for

0:13:060:13:12

Nick Knowles and Emma, and the whole

DIY SOS team who did an exceptional

0:13:120:13:17

job for Children in Need this year.

0:13:170:13:20

Your donation support a huge variety

of activities across the country.

0:13:220:13:26

One project run by South Wales

contemporary circus company

0:13:260:13:30

organised chaos is helping young

people from disadvantaged areas. We

0:13:300:13:35

asked local boy Michael Sheen to

drop by on a surprise visit to find

0:13:350:13:39

out more about the work they are

doing.

0:13:390:13:41

I'm outside here in Neath, Port

Talbot, my hometown. Inside there,

0:13:410:13:48

there is a brilliant social

enterprise called Organised Chaos.

0:13:480:13:54

These are communities that grew up

behind Ironworks, those industries

0:13:540:13:59

that have gone away now. But the

communities are still here.

It has

0:13:590:14:05

changed a lot.

What happened?

When

you came here six years ago, we

0:14:050:14:11

didn't have the lease on the

building, we were only open on a

0:14:110:14:14

Friday night. Now we are open five

nights a week, geared towards young

0:14:140:14:19

people. The problem we get with

older teenagers is drink and drugs,

0:14:190:14:24

and that becomes the natural path.

It is important to create a space

0:14:240:14:28

where not only can they come

together, but they can hang out and

0:14:280:14:33

join in the classes, volunteer with

us, be part of it. But for us more

0:14:330:14:38

than anything, it is an opportunity

to travel and meet other

0:14:380:14:40

professionals. It gives them hope.

We see social enterprises like this

0:14:400:14:49

giving opportunity to young people,

offering them the opportunity to

0:14:490:14:53

come together, work together, they

get a sense of solidarity with each

0:14:530:14:56

other. But the confidence they gain

as well, they can take off into

0:14:560:15:00

their lives in other ways.

If we

didn't have this, there would be a

0:15:000:15:04

lot more teenagers on the streets,

not putting skills they didn't know

0:15:040:15:07

they had to good use.

I aim to be more confident around

0:15:070:15:12

people and it has helped me with my

co-ordination and with doing things.

0:15:120:15:16

I used to be really shy, and I have

been dancing since I was two, and I

0:15:160:15:22

hated going on stage. Now, I am

always on stage.

0:15:220:15:27

I didn't like talking to anyone, and

now I will just talk to anyone.

0:15:270:15:31

Really? And it through doing stuff

here that has helped?

0:15:310:15:37

A lot of friends, a lot of skills,

it made me cope a lot more at

0:15:370:15:41

school, and it has really helped.

I

love hanging out here, it's great.

0:15:410:15:47

Children in Need has given us the

ability to forward plan activities

0:15:470:15:51

for the young people. Without

Children in Need, we wouldn't have

0:15:510:15:54

that positive outlook for the

future.

0:15:540:15:56

There are people like Nicola all

over the country doing incredible

0:15:560:16:01

work and giving opportunities to

young people, really changing lives.

0:16:010:16:06

There's just so much that makes me

happy, and fills my heart with joy

0:16:060:16:09

about coming here and seeing what's

going on. So the support that people

0:16:090:16:14

like Nicola get by people like you

giving money to Children in Need is

0:16:140:16:18

absolutely so important. So that's

what you're supporting. That's what

0:16:180:16:23

you're doing, you're changing lives.

0:16:230:16:30

A big thank you to Michael for

taking time out of his busy filming

0:16:300:16:35

schedule to visit organised chaos,

and Michael, we love the hair.

0:16:350:16:39

Always great to see how your

donations are hoping to support

0:16:390:16:43

young people right across Wales, and

you can still give the BBC Children

0:16:430:16:46

in Need. This is a quick reminder

how.

We just wanted to say a big

0:16:460:16:54

thank you to all of the people that

have donated generally to this

0:16:540:16:58

year's Children in Need.

To

0:16:580:17:10

thank you!

0:17:140:17:17

Now it is time for some or music.

Our next act shop fame back in 2008

0:17:220:17:26

when they won the BBC's last choir

standing, and quickly followed it up

0:17:260:17:31

with a classical Brit for album of

the year.

The line-up has seen a few

0:17:310:17:36

changes since then but they continue

to thrill audiences far and wide.

0:17:360:17:41

Just embarked on their annual

Christmas tour, here they are just

0:17:410:17:44

for you, only men aloud.

0:17:440:17:49

# I have run, I have crawled, and I

have scaled the city walls.

0:17:580:18:12

# These city walls, only to be with

you.

0:18:120:18:20

# But I still haven't found what I'm

looking for.

0:18:200:18:30

# But I still haven't found

what I'm looking for.

0:18:320:18:38

# I have kissed her knee lips, felt

the in her fingertips, it burned

0:18:420:18:55

like fire.

0:18:550:18:59

# It was burning inside her.

0:18:590:19:06

# I have spoke with the tongues of

angels, I have hurled the hands of

0:19:060:19:12

the devil.

0:19:120:19:16

# It was warm in the night.

0:19:160:19:23

# It was warm in the night.

0:19:230:19:26

# I was cold as a stone

0:19:260:19:28

# But I still haven't found

what I'm looking for

0:19:280:19:47

# Glory, Glory hallelujah.

0:19:530:20:00

# Glory, Glory hallelujah.

0:20:010:20:05

# Glory, Glory hallelujah.

0:20:050:20:08

# Glory, Glory hallelujah.

0:20:080:20:14

# Glory, Glory hallelujah.

0:20:140:20:18

# Is truth is marching...

0:20:220:20:31

# I believe in the kingdom come.

0:20:310:20:36

# I believe in the kingdom come.

0:20:360:20:41

# Carried the cross

Of my shame, Of my shame

0:20:470:20:52

# You know I believed it.

0:20:520:20:56

# You know I believed it.

0:20:560:20:59

# But I still haven't found

what I'm looking for

0:20:590:21:04

# Glory, Glory hallelujah.

0:21:070:21:13

# Glory, Glory hallelujah.

0:21:130:21:14

# But I still haven't found

what I'm looking for

0:21:140:21:24

APPLAUSE

0:21:340:21:39

APPLAUSE

Absolutely amazing. Only men aloud

0:21:390:21:43

with their version of the U2

classic, I still haven't found what

0:21:430:21:48

I'm looking for. Thank you so much,

gentlemen, brilliant stuff.

Now,

0:21:480:21:56

boxing has many a story to tell

about lives turned around by the

0:21:560:22:01

sport. Even boxing legend Muhammad

Ali spoke about how it kept him on

0:22:010:22:04

the straight and narrow. We asked

IBF world featherweight champion Li

0:22:040:22:10

Selby to visit a project in Port

Talbot, supported by your donations,

0:22:100:22:13

to give one young man the surprise

of his life.

0:22:130:22:18

Bulldogs is a busy boxing gym at the

heart of the local community in

0:22:210:22:24

portal but. -- Port Talbot. Children

in Need supports a scheme at the gym

0:22:240:22:32

that helps young people from

disadvantaged backgrounds.

0:22:320:22:36

16-year-old Ronan is one young

person who has benefited from your

0:22:360:22:39

donations. He has been boxing with

the club for four years, and it has

0:22:390:22:45

helped see him through some

difficult times.

I have come to meet

0:22:450:22:52

Ronan, by the sounds of things he

has had a similar background to

0:22:520:22:54

myself growing up. I am coming down

to surprise him, it will be nice to

0:22:540:22:59

meet him. Ronan, do you want to do

some sparring?

Oh, no! No way! I am

0:22:590:23:06

good.

Want to do a couple of bags?

Yes.

The funding pays for the use of

0:23:060:23:14

the gym, a support worker and

fitness instructor, all to help

0:23:140:23:19

young people feel healthier, happier

and less isolated.

Growing up I had

0:23:190:23:23

trouble back home, I could say.

How's it going for you?

I haven't

0:23:230:23:29

had the best of upbringings, but my

mum put me in this programme. As

0:23:290:23:37

long as I felt worried, I was never

left without anything, she would

0:23:370:23:44

cook me food, I am my clothes, even

if she was drunk.

To be honest you

0:23:440:23:49

are more similar to myself and what

I realised. Growing up, my mum had a

0:23:490:23:54

serious drinking problem the years.

One night we were just sitting down

0:23:540:23:58

normally watching TV, having a bit

of food, and all of a sudden my

0:23:580:24:02

mother went into a massive seizure,

she was just on the floor, fitting.

0:24:020:24:06

I had to step up and save her life

then. I saved her life.

It is a lot

0:24:060:24:12

for a young lads to go through. I

know when I joined the amateur gym,

0:24:120:24:17

it helped me out massively.

When I

came here, it was like, don't know

0:24:170:24:25

anyone, everyone just took me under

their wing.

This turnaround has

0:24:250:24:33

already seen Ronan have the

confidence to start his own

0:24:330:24:35

gardening business.

It has help me

achieve asking for work and finding

0:24:350:24:44

an apprenticeship.

0:24:440:24:47

With what he has gained, Ronan is

now giving back to his community by

0:24:500:24:55

coaching and training a group of

local young boxers.

Very dedicated,

0:24:550:25:02

hard-working. A young sort of

entrepreneur. Grown into a lovely

0:25:020:25:07

young man who is what the gym is

about. He is a success story.

The

0:25:070:25:12

gym benefits from Ronan, always

helping us out with the younger

0:25:120:25:15

group, doing pads and everything. He

has been good.

It was great coming

0:25:150:25:21

down here tonight and meeting Ronan

and the rest of the kids. The fee

0:25:210:25:24

doesn't make a good boxer, he will

make a good trainer. -- if he

0:25:240:25:30

doesn't.

So good to see how a

project that your money supports has

0:25:300:25:33

really helped Ronan find his feet

and grow in confidence and stop also

0:25:330:25:38

come huge thanks to Li Selby for

taking the time to visit Bulldogs in

0:25:380:25:42

Port Talbot.

Now, our next musical guests made

their name as finalists in the voice

Tom. Local lads from Blackwood, they

0:26:260:26:31

have been performing together since

their teens. Here now with their

0:26:310:26:34

brand-new single, straight to your

door, please give a big Children in

0:26:340:26:41

Need welcome to Into the Arc.

0:26:410:26:46

#

I call you sweetheart.

0:26:460:26:52

# Because the sun shines where you

are.

0:26:520:27:03

# Well, me, I'm just like the dark.

0:27:030:27:15

# Because me and the moon both

thought we were stars.

0:27:150:27:25

# But they say about me babe, they

are saying about me, babe.

0:27:250:27:35

#

0:27:350:27:40

# They say about me any more, love's

and expected. -- unexpected.

0:27:400:27:53

# So I don't spec queued to care

like before. -- I don't expect you.

0:27:530:28:03

# No, I ain't alone. You are deep in

my soul. I'm walking on hope.

0:28:030:28:18

# Treated you wrong, baby, must have

been 1000 times.

0:28:180:28:29

# This time, I won't hold back, I

can't stand it, how you throw your

0:28:290:28:36

love around.

0:28:360:28:39

# I was alone, and, girl, you took

my soul, walking on home.

0:28:390:28:53

# Home, home, I ain't alone.

0:28:530:29:03

# I'll hold my own, straight to your

door, straight to your door.

0:29:030:29:14

# Oh, baby, straight to your door,

baby.

0:29:140:29:27

# I'll be home, home.

0:29:270:29:35

# Oh baby, straight to your door,

baby.

0:29:350:29:45

# I'll be home, oh...

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:30:230:30:27

A big thank you to Into the Ark.

Great stuff, lads, good luck with

0:30:320:30:36

the single. Over to Lucy, who has

found a familiar face in the

0:30:360:30:39

audience.

It is only rugby legend Gareth

0:30:390:30:45

Thomas. Lovely to see you. How are

you doing?

Really well, thank you.

0:30:450:30:51

Like many of our audience, I really

enjoyed Alfie Potter is my army.

0:30:510:30:55

How big a challenge was it to get a

group of young people fit enough to

0:30:550:31:01

run the card of half marathon.

I

thought it was tough with the women,

0:31:010:31:05

but taking a group of 17-23 year

old, I didn't have much hair at the

0:31:050:31:10

start of it, but at the end I had

much less!

0:31:100:31:14

Everyone in life, I feel, deserves

the opportunity of greatness. Some

0:31:140:31:21

people don't get a chance for what

ever reason, and I wanted to give

0:31:210:31:25

them that opportunity. They were a

bunch of good people, but at the end

0:31:250:31:29

of it, were absolutely great people.

We should have a quick reminder of

0:31:290:31:33

how everybody got on, let's take a

look.

0:31:330:31:36

Remember who you are!

0:31:390:31:41

Across the summer, the 17-21

-year-olds have been following a

0:31:440:31:47

training programme.

0:31:470:31:51

There have been times when they have

stuck to the training plan. They

0:31:520:31:55

have been happy and positive, and

all of a sudden, you have a mood

0:31:550:32:01

swing and they fight against me.

Even if it is for ten seconds. Try

0:32:010:32:06

not to be down on everything.

I

tried. It doesn't work.

I am too

0:32:060:32:12

tired. I want to eat.

It has been an

up and down process with them. I

0:32:120:32:16

have been really worried.

My back

legs are killing, but I am still

0:32:160:32:21

doing it.

Are you going to finish?

Definitely.

They will remember it

0:32:210:32:26

for their lives. It has been hard

work.

0:32:260:32:32

They did so well. Was it a bigger

challenge than you thought it was

0:32:350:32:38

going to be to get everybody over

the line?

0:32:380:32:41

There were times when I really

questioned if it was going to be

0:32:410:32:45

successful. But as with the whole

process, I stuck to it like my

0:32:450:32:50

rugby, I was committed to it. A lot

of them didn't know who they were at

0:32:500:32:54

the start of it, and going through

the process, they were figuring out

0:32:540:32:57

that. They were figuring out how

good they could be.

0:32:570:33:01

And one of your army, Bradley, is

with us. You did brilliantly in the

0:33:010:33:06

Cardiff half marathon. What was your

time.

One hour and 49 minutes.

That

0:33:060:33:11

is astonishing. Were you proud of

that?

People train most of their

0:33:110:33:17

life to achieve that. Absolutely

brilliant. You are part of a group,

0:33:170:33:24

a charity from Anglesey that

receives help from Children in Need.

0:33:240:33:28

What was it like to run the Cardiff

half as a group?

It was nice to come

0:33:280:33:33

together as one big group, like,

because in a homeless hostel, we

0:33:330:33:38

didn't do much, like, go out. For

Alfie to come down was enormous.

How

0:33:380:33:44

has it help you?

It helped me when

me and my mum were going through

0:33:440:33:49

tough times with each other. They

took me on and supported me all

0:33:490:33:53

away, helped me get back into

college, helped me get into my

0:33:530:33:56

fitness, and healthier eating. And

supported me a hell of a lot.

You

0:33:560:34:01

must be so proud.

Unbelievably

proud. This one and all the others,

0:34:010:34:05

great.

Brilliant. Thank you so much

for coming in and talking to us.

0:34:050:34:10

Thank you so much, Bradley and

Alfie. APPLAUSE

0:34:100:34:14

For most children, parents are the

ones who do the caring and looking

0:34:170:34:21

after, even if they can sometimes be

a bit annoying. This next film

0:34:210:34:26

features a very special young lady

who has had to take on those

0:34:260:34:32

responsibilities and a project that

BBC Children in Need supports, which

0:34:320:34:35

offers her the chance to spend time

with people her own age.

0:34:350:34:39

This is 13-year-old Shri Arne.

I

care for our mum and look after my

0:34:410:34:48

sister.

I normally wake up at 6am on a

0:34:480:34:52

school day, because my sister takes

a long time to get up. And then I

0:34:520:34:56

have to get myself ready. And my

sister ready. And I get breakfast

0:34:560:35:00

ready.

Her mum has debilitating

osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia. It

0:35:000:35:08

is a long-term condition that causes

pain all over the body, making

0:35:080:35:12

everyday tasks impossible to

complete.

0:35:120:35:17

She has pain in all her joints. She

gets tired easily.

0:35:170:35:21

I know she wants to help, but I can

see she can't help.

0:35:210:35:28

Sometimes, I'm worried because she's

too young. But everything is heavy,

0:35:280:35:34

like a big responsibility, which she

is doing for me.

0:35:340:35:38

Due to her mum's condition, she

takes on most of the household jobs.

0:35:380:35:44

And as her mum finds it so difficult

to get about, she even takes on the

0:35:440:35:48

weekly food shop.

I think the only time she ever comes

0:35:480:35:54

out is when we do clothes shopping,

because, you know, my sister is so

0:35:540:35:59

picky with her clothes. But other

than that, my mum stays in the car

0:35:590:36:03

and I do most of the shopping. I can

manage most of the time.

0:36:030:36:11

Your donations support a project

that's made a huge difference to

0:36:140:36:17

her. She gets the much-needed break

she needs thanks to a music project

0:36:170:36:24

run by the YMCA in Swansea. This is

her time to relax, have fun and hang

0:36:240:36:30

out with her friends.

The music studio, it is important to

0:36:300:36:35

me, because I can use instruments

and create music with other people.

0:36:350:36:39

Kind of like a band, and I enjoy

being there with my friends. It's

0:36:390:36:43

quite a lot of fun.

Children in Need funding is really

0:36:430:36:48

important for recording industry

give. It provides young people with

0:36:480:36:51

an opportunity to come here, and

members of staff can support them to

0:36:510:36:55

learn different music instruments,

to work on their Lindrick abiding

0:36:550:36:57

skills, and put get an album, if

that's what they want to do.

0:36:570:37:02

It is like a big family, because we

understand each other, and it is

0:37:020:37:08

nice to talk to someone that has the

same job as you. It helps your

0:37:080:37:12

confidence, and makes you feel

better.

0:37:120:37:16

Your donations to BBC Children in

Need really help young people all

0:37:160:37:20

over Wales. And it's not too late to

help.

0:37:200:37:24

Thank you.

0:37:370:37:38

Now, at the beginning of the show,

we promised you a rare musical

0:37:420:37:47

treat. Yes, the man who has been the

face of DIY SOS since it began 13

0:37:470:37:53

years ago is here with his band and

he's going to sing for us right now,

Nick Knowles with the Robert Palmer

classic there. That went well, did

0:41:320:41:38

you enjoy it?

It was really nice. I

felt nervous about doing live

0:41:380:41:42

performances like that. I have spent

the last 35 years playing privately

0:41:420:41:46

with my brother on base guitar.

People that know me know that is

0:41:460:41:55

what I do, the rest of the world

didn't. I was still nervous, but I

0:41:550:41:59

enjoyed it.

We are into it. Thank

you for sharing that. The album is

0:41:590:42:03

out, too. Thank you for being with

us this evening and for being a huge

Now, earlier this year, you may have

seen a BBC film about Welsh actor

0:42:190:42:24

Richard Mylan and his autistic son,

so it was a quick yes when we asked

0:42:240:42:28

Richard if you want to do visit a

project in Wrexham that supports

0:42:280:42:32

children and young people on the

autistic spectrum.

0:42:320:42:36

What are you worried about?

Worried

about the flies and butterflies, and

0:42:370:42:44

ladybirds, and bees.

It is a lot to

worry about, isn't it.

0:42:440:42:50

Earlier this year, my son and I made

a documentary about the joys and

0:42:500:42:55

difficulties of being a dad, caring

for an autistic son.

That is a bike.

0:42:550:43:03

His orders means his brain is why

different you to other people. He

0:43:050:43:08

can struggle with language and

social interaction. Today, I'm

0:43:080:43:14

heading to Wrexham, to meet another

young autistic person, 12-year-old

0:43:140:43:19

Millie, and her mum Alison.

When she

was four and a half, we knew there

0:43:190:43:24

was something, because at home it

was quite challenging.

0:43:240:43:28

She was referred to the

paediatrician before her fifth

0:43:280:43:31

birthday. They did an assessment in

the hospital, and the next day, I

0:43:310:43:35

had a phone call to go in, and she

was diagnosed with autism.

0:43:350:43:40

We felt absolutely devastated. It

was a pretty hard time.

0:43:400:43:47

Millie and Alison have invited me to

Your Space, a charity making a big

0:43:500:43:58

difference to their lives. It is an

opportunity to grab a chat with

0:43:580:44:02

Millie's mum, about how challenging

things have been, especially in the

0:44:020:44:05

early days.

How was Millie's School of?

Her

0:44:050:44:10

school life was pretty bad. What

ever happened during a school day,

0:44:100:44:13

she would come home and recreate it

at home.

Did it impact on family

0:44:130:44:18

life?

Dreadfully. What we were doing

wasn't working. The house would be

0:44:180:44:23

trashed, sofas upended. You had to

see it to believe it, the physical

0:44:230:44:29

strength as a child she had when she

had a knock-down.

The creative

0:44:290:44:32

downtime, was she into any of that,

drawing or art?

Millie wouldn't even

0:44:320:44:39

sit down to eat. She would

constantly be on the go. Really

0:44:390:44:43

struggle to have calmed time. I

don't think she has ever watched a

0:44:430:44:46

DVD or film.

One of the sessions that Millie has

0:44:460:44:51

responded really well too is the

expressive art sessions, sessions

0:44:510:44:56

funded by your Children in Need

donations.

0:44:560:45:08

The session today includes

mask-making and Millie has a

0:45:080:45:11

surprise for me. Is that me? Can I

wear this for the rest of the

0:45:110:45:16

interview? LAUGHTER

I love that, can I take that with

0:45:160:45:18

me?

Guess.

And do you do drama

sometimes?

Yes, we do do drama

0:45:180:45:26

sometimes.

Football manager role

play.

Acting, right up my street. If

0:45:260:45:32

we are going to win this league, I

don't know if I have it in me, I

0:45:320:45:36

think I might have to go and play

for Accrington Stanley.

You're

0:45:360:45:40

fired!

OK. This place is brilliant,

what kind of impact as it had?

A

0:45:400:45:48

huge impact, it is created,

something different on every table,

0:45:480:45:51

and they can do whatever they want

to do. If they want to sit down and

0:45:510:45:55

chill out, they can do that. She can

sit down and colour and raw. She

0:45:550:46:00

will colour flowers and that is

something she has never been able to

0:46:000:46:03

do.

It is great she has learned

that.

It has changed her a lot.

They

0:46:030:46:09

are learning how to follow and

instruction, grateful concentration

0:46:090:46:12

that it is the softer outcomes we

are more inches to Dean, friendships

0:46:120:46:15

forming, and the fact they are

sitting together and engaging with

0:46:150:46:19

somebody. Some children that have

come to the session would never

0:46:190:46:21

speak and now you can't stop them.

That is just amazing to see.

All too

0:46:210:46:28

soon, it was time for me to say

goodbye to the gang and head back to

0:46:280:46:33

Jaco. Give me a high five, can I

have a high five off you? By

0:46:330:46:38

everyone, bye-bye. What a great

place. They are doing fantastic work

0:46:380:46:44

there, and it is not too late to

donate, so get donating now. Help

0:46:440:46:50

causes just like this. Fantastic.

0:46:500:46:52

Now, some more music was our next

special guest released her debut

0:47:120:47:16

album at the end of September and is

about to embark on a UK tour. She

0:47:160:47:21

was brought up on a cruise farm in

Devon, Pembrokeshire, and has

0:47:210:47:24

modelled for some of the world's

biggest fashion houses. -- in Nevin.

CHEERING

Now we are almost at the end of our

0:51:000:51:10

Children in Need big Welsh show, but

before we go, we have one last treat

0:51:100:51:14

for you. Every year, a highlight of

the Friday night appeal show is when

0:51:140:51:19

children's wires from around the UK

join together to sing a special

0:51:190:51:22

arrangement of a classic song. In

Wales, the choir was created from

0:51:220:51:27

three schools in Cardiff and

available Glamorgan we asked a

0:51:270:51:31

choral wizard to help them prepare

for their big night and here is a

0:51:310:51:35

quick look at Tim putting them

through their paces.

All these

0:51:350:51:39

choirs have been working with

amazing teachers and are already

0:51:390:51:43

sounding fantastic. I am dropping in

for a lesson and to give them a few

0:51:430:51:46

tips the big night. First stop, Fitz

Alan high school in Cardiff.

0:51:460:51:52

Hello. Can you spread out, please,

so there is as much room as

0:51:530:52:01

possible? As well as rehearsing this

song it is important to do a proper

0:52:010:52:04

warm up and to remember that singing

together is about having fun. Just

0:52:040:52:08

take one hand and shake.

0:52:080:52:12

Whitchurch primary school and a

choir made up of 42 children from

0:52:150:52:18

year six. This is all about us

working together as a team, it is

0:52:180:52:25

about trying to be as good as we can

and trying to free up our bodies.

0:52:250:52:32

Your all out! LAUGHTER

0:52:320:52:35

And the final stop, Cowbridge.

0:52:360:52:43

# : the chain, Paul McShane!

0:52:480:52:51

The song that they choir is singing

is one of my very own favourites,

0:52:510:52:58

and the wonderful BBC National of

Wales have recorded the backing

0:52:580:53:01

track for the whole of the UK to

sing along to. With just one week to

0:53:010:53:12

go before the big show, all of the

hard work is starting to pay off.

0:53:120:53:21

And there is one final surprise in

store for the choir at Fitz Alan

0:53:210:53:24

when Sophie Evans drops in to hear

them sing. She played Dorothy in the

0:53:240:53:33

West End production of the Wizard of

Oz.

Hello, how are you all? Good?

0:53:330:53:39

New sound beautiful, are you

enjoying it? I only little note

0:53:390:53:43

would be to make sure you smile,

because when you smile, a different

0:53:430:53:47

sound comes out.

A lovely energy,

they really want to get it right,

0:53:470:53:51

and I think they are going to be

great. Our three Welsh choirs have

0:53:510:53:56

worked so hard, and I can't wait to

hear them singing with the rest of

0:53:560:54:00

the UK, flying the flag for Wales on

Children in Need night.

0:54:000:54:05

# Someday I'll wish upon a star and

wake up where the clouds are far

0:54:060:54:13

behind me.

0:54:130:54:15

I felt so much energy and enthusiasm

coming off me.

I am so nervous, it

0:54:170:54:23

is unbelievable!

0:54:230:54:25

Brilliant, brilliant.

0:54:250:54:29

Here they are, all 110 of them. I

think they deserve a big round of

0:54:310:54:36

applause! APPLAUSE

0:54:360:54:43

You all did brilliantly on Friday

night. In fact, you were so good, we

0:54:460:54:51

thought we should ask you to sing

this year's song again just for us

0:54:510:54:54

will stop does that sound like a

good idea? CHEERING

0:54:540:54:58

I think they think it sounds like a

good idea.

Yes, now to bring our big

0:54:580:55:04

Welsh show to a close this year,

singing Over The Rainbow, our BBC

0:55:040:55:09

Children in Need Choir. From all of

us here in Cardiff,

good night!

0:55:090:55:18

# Somewhere Over The Rainbow, way up

high.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow, skies
