Excuse I. Excuse I.

0:00:030:00:05

Excuse I. Excuse I. Hello.

0:00:050:00:08

Yeah. Now, on the show tonight, we celebrate the return

0:00:080:00:11

of one of the most iconic British films ever.

0:00:110:00:13

Trainspotting is back!

0:00:130:00:15

They're here!

0:00:180:00:19

Hey, let's start the show! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:190:00:22

This programme contains strong language

0:00:260:00:35

Oh!

0:00:390:00:40

Oh!

0:00:400:00:42

Thank you!

0:00:430:00:44

HE CHUCKLES

0:00:440:00:48

Too kind!

0:00:480:00:50

Hello, good evening and welcome.

0:00:500:00:52

Oh, a great show for you tonight.

0:00:520:00:54

The stars of T2 Trainspotting are here, ladies and gentlemen!

0:00:540:00:57

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Yes!

0:00:570:01:00

Plus, joining them is the director, Danny Boyle.

0:01:010:01:05

Of course, Danny didn't just direct both Trainspotting movies. No.

0:01:050:01:08

He's done other things.

0:01:080:01:09

He directed the opening ceremony of the London Olympics.

0:01:090:01:12

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, yes. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:01:120:01:14

Of course, that also featured a group of chronic drug addicts.

0:01:140:01:17

Another one of Danny's big hits was 28 Days Later,

0:01:230:01:26

where a guy wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world to find

0:01:260:01:29

the streets are completely deserted. Yeah.

0:01:290:01:32

Or as Donald Trump would call it, a very successful inauguration.

0:01:320:01:35

Good, that, wasn't it? I didn't see it coming.

0:01:370:01:40

I did not see that coming.

0:01:400:01:42

As we speak, Theresa May is visiting Donald Trump.

0:01:440:01:47

She'll be staying overnight at the White House, and has bought

0:01:470:01:50

some new pyjamas especially for the occasion.

0:01:500:01:53

It's KNIGHTWEAR! AUDIENCE GROANS

0:01:580:02:01

After taking office,

0:02:040:02:07

one of the first things Trump did was to restore

0:02:070:02:10

the Winston Churchill bust to the Oval Office.

0:02:100:02:13

Aw. He's also got plans on what to do with Theresa May's bust.

0:02:130:02:17

HORN HONKS

0:02:170:02:19

Let's get some guests on!

0:02:190:02:20

Later, we have music from rising solo star Izzy Bizu!

0:02:220:02:25

But first, let's meet the stars of T2 Trainspotting.

0:02:270:02:31

Ewen Bremner! Hey! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:310:02:35

Hello, sir. You're very welcome.

0:02:350:02:37

Robert Carlyle!

0:02:370:02:38

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Hello! Hello. Nice to see you.

0:02:380:02:41

Jonny Lee Miller! Oh! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:410:02:45

Ewan McGregor! Hello. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:450:02:48

And director Danny Boyle! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:490:02:52

Hello! Hi!

0:02:520:02:54

Sit down.

0:02:550:02:56

This is mad. Anyway...

0:03:030:03:06

Lovely to see you all. Welcome, welcome.

0:03:060:03:09

Danny, obviously, on set you're in charge.

0:03:090:03:12

Apparently, yeah.

0:03:120:03:13

On a night like tonight, are you in charge of the sofa?

0:03:130:03:16

Just wait and see. You'll quickly find out I'm not.

0:03:160:03:19

-The answer is "no".

-Yes!

0:03:190:03:21

So, er, welcome back, Trainspotting.

0:03:210:03:24

Sunday night was the big premiere in Edinburgh.

0:03:240:03:27

-Look at you all! That must have been a great night for you all.

-Yeah.

0:03:270:03:30

It was fantastic.

0:03:300:03:31

The whole of Edinburgh seemed to turn out on the streets.

0:03:310:03:33

It was wonderful.

0:03:330:03:34

At least... Now, Jonny and Ewan, can you remember this one now?

0:03:340:03:37

-This one we remember, I think, yeah.

-It was only on Sunday, in fairness.

0:03:370:03:41

Bits of it.

0:03:420:03:44

We've got the last one. This is you 20 years ago.

0:03:440:03:47

You guys don't remember this one?

0:03:470:03:49

-Bits.

-Not really.

0:03:490:03:51

Not really at all. I don't remember it.

0:03:520:03:54

I don't remember what...

0:03:540:03:56

You all look so happy and lovely.

0:03:560:03:57

You're scanning across, and then you get to Robert Carlyle...

0:03:570:04:00

Did no-one give you the dress code?

0:04:000:04:02

Was it "come as you are"?

0:04:040:04:06

You see, I DO remember it, because I'd been filming

0:04:060:04:09

in Nicaragua, in actual fact.

0:04:090:04:12

And, of course, there was no...

0:04:120:04:13

This was the days before real internet.

0:04:130:04:15

So we'd no idea that any of the build-up to the first film

0:04:150:04:18

was happening. So I came across the very night of the premiere.

0:04:180:04:23

I landed at Heathrow and I seen his face in all these magazines.

0:04:230:04:27

I thought, "This is... Something's happening here.

0:04:270:04:30

"This is bizarre."

0:04:300:04:31

-"I'll get my sheepskin jacket."

-Exactly.

0:04:310:04:34

LAUGHTER DROWNS SPEECH

0:04:340:04:36

"This is a special night."

0:04:360:04:38

That's what I was wearing when I came off the plane.

0:04:380:04:40

It's all changed now. All changed now.

0:04:430:04:46

The person I must say hello to is Ewen.

0:04:460:04:49

Cos Spud was such a kind of strong visual look.

0:04:490:04:53

Like, so, people...

0:04:530:04:55

Even now, it's used as a kind of reference. Do you know...

0:04:550:04:58

Are you aware of what happened in Utah? Do you know this?

0:04:580:05:00

Ooh! Your researcher told me about this.

0:05:000:05:03

It does ring a bell, yes.

0:05:030:05:05

Basically, someone in Utah -

0:05:050:05:07

this was only a couple of years ago - committed a crime, OK?

0:05:070:05:10

And they didn't have a photograph of the criminal they were looking for.

0:05:100:05:14

So this is the genuine "wanted" poster.

0:05:140:05:17

"It's something like that.

0:05:250:05:27

"He probably looks like this."

0:05:290:05:31

Did they ever catch him, Graham?

0:05:320:05:34

"Don't go to Utah" would be my advice.

0:05:340:05:36

APPLAUSE

0:05:390:05:41

Oh, dear.

0:05:440:05:45

Listen, we're here to celebrate the release of T2 Trainspotting,

0:05:450:05:49

which opens everywhere tonight.

0:05:490:05:51

Let's start with a taste of what to expect.

0:05:510:05:54

'Choose life.

0:05:560:05:57

'Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,

0:05:570:06:00

'and hope that someone, somewhere, cares.'

0:06:000:06:02

Missed you, man.

0:06:020:06:03

I missed you too, Spud.

0:06:030:06:05

'Choose looking up old flames,

0:06:050:06:06

'wishing you'd done it all differently.'

0:06:060:06:08

-Do you still take heroin?

-No.

0:06:080:06:11

'And choose watching history repeat itself.'

0:06:110:06:13

-Hello, Franco.

-Simon.

0:06:170:06:20

I'm home.

0:06:200:06:21

'Choose your future.'

0:06:240:06:25

-Call the police.

-What shall I say?

0:06:250:06:27

Just tell them we're dead.

0:06:270:06:28

'Choose reality TV, slut shaming, revenge porn.

0:06:280:06:32

'Choose a zero-hour contract, a two-hour journey to work,

0:06:320:06:35

'and choose the same for your kids, only worse.

0:06:350:06:37

'And smother the pain with an unknown dose of an unknown drug

0:06:370:06:39

'made in somebody's kitchen. And then take a deep breath.'

0:06:390:06:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:06:440:06:47

That's so good.

0:06:470:06:48

So, we were...

0:06:480:06:50

So, when we were filming that,

0:06:520:06:53

that bit at the end where he's on the tower block...

0:06:530:06:55

-Spud?

-When Spud's on the tower block.

0:06:550:06:57

We were up there... It took, like, a morning.

0:06:570:06:59

And there was a guy watching us from the other tower block.

0:06:590:07:02

He was at the window of the other tower block and he was watching what we were doing,

0:07:020:07:05

and he's looking over at us. And eventually, he...

0:07:050:07:07

There was a lot of anticipation around Edinburgh

0:07:070:07:10

about what we were doing and eventually he looked at me,

0:07:100:07:13

caught my eye, and he pointed, and he said to me,

0:07:130:07:16

"This better not be shite, Danny."

0:07:160:07:17

And that's the biggest anxiety that you have,

0:07:200:07:22

is obviously that you follow up a really great success with shite.

0:07:220:07:27

Yes. And also, I think it's everyone's kind of...

0:07:270:07:30

I was saying to you backstage, I loved it. I loved it.

0:07:300:07:33

All those things you worry about - have you left it too long?

0:07:330:07:36

But, actually, the point is that it's 20 years later, isn't it?

0:07:360:07:40

It's kind of like our special effect, isn't it, age?

0:07:400:07:43

It's almost like...

0:07:430:07:44

our big-money special effect.

0:07:440:07:49

It's like watching children act - "What a convincing six-year-old."

0:07:490:07:52

But you all look 20 years older - it's excellent.

0:07:520:07:54

-Thank you.

-It's amazing.

0:07:560:07:58

Put a lot of work into it.

0:07:590:08:01

-REALLY worked on it.

-Really hard, yeah.

0:08:010:08:04

So at the end of the first film, Renton, you walked off

0:08:040:08:07

with all the money, 16 grand.

0:08:070:08:08

So, 20 years later, where are we now?

0:08:080:08:10

Where's Spud as the movie begins?

0:08:100:08:12

Spud is really not in a good place.

0:08:120:08:14

He's been trying his best,

0:08:140:08:15

struggling through the last 20 years to be a better man,

0:08:150:08:20

the man that his wife and child need him to be.

0:08:200:08:23

And it's devastating for him that he is crippled

0:08:230:08:28

with his addictions and is unable to break free of them.

0:08:280:08:34

Great for you, but it is kind of amazing he's still alive.

0:08:340:08:37

It is, it is amazing, but there's plenty of people

0:08:370:08:40

you could say that about.

0:08:400:08:41

Rock and roll's littered with those cats that

0:08:410:08:43

are still remarkably sprightly, you know,

0:08:430:08:48

in their 60s and 70s right now, so...

0:08:480:08:50

I think there's life in the old Spud yet.

0:08:500:08:53

And Begbie - what's happened to Begbie?

0:08:550:08:57

Begbie's exactly where you expect him to be - he's in the nick.

0:08:570:09:01

He's been there for the last 20 years, festering,

0:09:010:09:04

thinking about this guy and the day he can meet him and kill him.

0:09:040:09:08

I suppose, at the beginning,

0:09:100:09:11

Sick Boy is the most, kind of, surprising,

0:09:110:09:13

what's happened to him in the 20 years.

0:09:130:09:15

Yeah, I mean...

0:09:150:09:17

I kind of, like, was not that surprised that he's sort of

0:09:170:09:20

stuck in a rut, cos that's one thing I really loved

0:09:200:09:23

about where he is in the new film. He's...

0:09:230:09:27

His powers have waned.

0:09:270:09:28

People used to think Sick Boy was such a cool character

0:09:280:09:30

and I thought it was interesting to look at him, the fact he's stuck

0:09:300:09:35

in the same circles of behaviour, he's sort of struggling in life

0:09:350:09:38

and he thinks he's winning, and still a chancer,

0:09:380:09:40

but he's really making bad decisions

0:09:400:09:43

and that's led to a lot of frustration and bitterness.

0:09:430:09:46

So there are no parallels with my own life at all.

0:09:460:09:50

-Phew!

-Difficult.

0:09:500:09:51

Were you worried about the movie,

0:09:520:09:54

going back and doing a Scottish accent again?

0:09:540:09:57

Er, yes. I mean, not worried, but I approached it differently.

0:09:570:10:00

I kept up the accent the whole time filming the first one,

0:10:000:10:03

cos no-one knew who we were.

0:10:030:10:05

I could go to a pub in Glasgow and just wing it.

0:10:050:10:08

And if you can get away with it in a pub in Glasgow,

0:10:080:10:10

-you can get away with it anywhere, right?

-Have you ever done?

0:10:100:10:13

As I was saying...

0:10:170:10:20

Yeah, so I worked with a dialect coach this time round.

0:10:230:10:26

-Cos I...

-Cos you don't drink any more.

0:10:260:10:28

"Just practising my fucking accent."

0:10:370:10:39

"I can't do Scottish any more!"

0:10:410:10:43

And, Ewan, the story was kicked off by Renton. Renton kind of...

0:10:460:10:50

We find him in Amsterdam, where he's been for the last 20 years.

0:10:500:10:54

And he has a medical emergency,

0:10:540:10:59

has a cardiac issue,

0:10:590:11:01

which causes him to rethink his life and come home for the first time.

0:11:010:11:05

And when he comes home, we realise he hasn't even been home

0:11:050:11:08

for his mother's funeral,

0:11:080:11:09

and this is his coming back to face his mates again

0:11:090:11:13

and find out what he's going to do with his life.

0:11:130:11:16

And there's a lot of that feeling in the movie -

0:11:160:11:18

that sort of, er, search for the future through the past.

0:11:180:11:23

There's a nostalgia in it that I think you're right in saying

0:11:230:11:26

earlier wouldn't have existed if we'd made the film earlier.

0:11:260:11:28

You know, it's taken 20 years to have this beautiful weight

0:11:280:11:33

of looking back at our youth through these characters.

0:11:330:11:36

And, as people who played them, looking at our own,

0:11:360:11:39

which seems quite far away now. You know, sadly.

0:11:390:11:42

It's odd, cos you kind of think Trainspotting wasn't that long ago.

0:11:420:11:45

But you do all look like children in the flashbacks.

0:11:450:11:49

How much did you want this to stand alone,

0:11:490:11:53

and how much did you...

0:11:530:11:55

Cos it's a delicate balance, how self-referential it would be.

0:11:550:11:58

You can't just repeat it. In fact, if you're going to do that, you do one straightaway,

0:11:580:12:02

which is the tradition with a sequel.

0:12:020:12:04

You've got to let the 20 years that has passed stand for

0:12:040:12:07

the main element of the film, really. And the catch-up.

0:12:070:12:10

And I think it...

0:12:100:12:11

It does this weird thing. I mean, you know this as well -

0:12:110:12:14

if you look back at you

0:12:140:12:15

beginning this show compared to what you look like now...

0:12:150:12:18

All right, I'm a lot older. Thank you.

0:12:180:12:21

But television has that...

0:12:220:12:25

He's a guest!

0:12:250:12:26

Television has that amazing...

0:12:280:12:29

Film, television - it freezes you in time,

0:12:290:12:32

and people have an image... "I remember Graham on his first show."

0:12:320:12:34

-They have that image in their mind. And they meet you in the street...

-Yes.

0:12:340:12:38

..and they're like, "No, I don't want him to look like that."

0:12:390:12:41

LAUGHTER

0:12:410:12:45

What did I do to deserve this?

0:12:450:12:46

No, I meant...

0:12:480:12:50

All right, I've melted. I've melted, Danny!

0:12:510:12:54

Sh!

0:12:540:12:55

-But you know what I mean.

-Oh, I...

0:12:570:12:59

Yes, we've established - I understand I'm much older!

0:13:010:13:05

And then you unfreeze them in time

0:13:050:13:07

and bring them next door to each other like this and people can see them.

0:13:070:13:10

And you do see these occasional glimpses of them

0:13:100:13:12

back in the original film and it's very moving,

0:13:120:13:15

and it returns these guys to the common pool,

0:13:150:13:17

-cos it's something we all face.

-Yeah.

0:13:170:13:20

Whether we're aware of it or not yet,

0:13:200:13:22

it's in the post for everyone, this ageing thing.

0:13:220:13:24

Also the bonds of shared history. I was talking to you backstage -

0:13:240:13:27

that idea that those bonds of shared history, as you get older,

0:13:270:13:30

-take on an importance they never had.

-Absolutely, yeah.

0:13:300:13:33

You talk about the time being right now, but I suppose

0:13:330:13:36

one of the things about coming back was...

0:13:360:13:38

One of the problems about all of this was that you guys...

0:13:380:13:40

How many years did you not talk for?

0:13:400:13:42

-Yeah, quite a bit.

-A long time, yeah.

-Sadly, yeah.

0:13:420:13:45

I don't mean to trivialise it, because it's an awful thing.

0:13:450:13:48

You know, you really liked each other,

0:13:480:13:50

you loved working together, and then it...

0:13:500:13:52

What was it? Was it one bust-up, or was it a dribbling apart?

0:13:520:13:56

It was just over a film that was a misunderstanding

0:13:560:14:00

and a mishandling of...

0:14:000:14:02

-It was just over a film that I...

-This was The Beach.

0:14:020:14:06

It's a big regret of mine that it went on for so very long.

0:14:060:14:10

-It's a shame we didn't work together all those years, cos...

-Yeah.

0:14:100:14:13

Not because of any particular film.

0:14:130:14:14

It didn't really matter about The Beach.

0:14:140:14:16

It was never about The Beach - it was about our friendship

0:14:160:14:19

and how much I felt like Danny's...

0:14:190:14:22

I was in the first three movies, you know -

0:14:220:14:25

Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, then A Life Less Ordinary -

0:14:250:14:27

and then I wasn't in the fourth and I was a bit...

0:14:270:14:29

It made me a bit rudderless. I didn't quite get it.

0:14:290:14:32

And, er...

0:14:320:14:34

Yeah, we didn't speak for a long time, which was such a waste.

0:14:340:14:37

It began with a lunch?

0:14:370:14:40

Is the lunch when you told him he wasn't going to be in The Beach?

0:14:400:14:43

-Yeah, and I think we han...

-I

-handled it very, very badly

0:14:430:14:46

and I have apologised to Ewan

0:14:460:14:48

and I kind of feel a shame about it that's very difficult...

0:14:480:14:52

You know, it's one of the things, weirdly, that the film is about,

0:14:520:14:55

trying to express emotions.

0:14:550:14:57

And I felt a great shame about it, really.

0:14:570:14:59

I was not proud of the way I handled it.

0:14:590:15:02

And he, actually, handled it with enormous grace.

0:15:020:15:05

Cos, you know, you see these actors and they do big things

0:15:050:15:09

and you hear the stories about them,

0:15:090:15:11

and he handles all his world with enormous grace

0:15:110:15:14

and courage, actually.

0:15:140:15:15

Which is the definition of grace.

0:15:150:15:18

They say courage is grace under pressure,

0:15:180:15:19

which he showed enormously. So...

0:15:190:15:22

And we had this thing,

0:15:220:15:23

we had this film, this Slumdog Millionaire,

0:15:230:15:25

which was doing amazing, picking up all these amazing things,

0:15:250:15:28

and somebody asked him. They didn't tell me but somebody asked him

0:15:280:15:31

whether he'd present this kind of promotional award to me,

0:15:310:15:34

which is one of the things you do on the route to the Oscars

0:15:340:15:37

and stuff like that.

0:15:370:15:39

And he did and he stood up on stage and he made this amazing speech.

0:15:390:15:42

And I was in tears backstage.

0:15:420:15:44

It was like, "Oh, God!"

0:15:440:15:45

So, yeah...

0:15:450:15:47

I'm very grateful to him.

0:15:470:15:49

And when this happens in my life... If, friends of mine, this happens...

0:15:490:15:52

I always really unsuccessfully try to interfere and broker a peace.

0:15:520:15:56

Did any of you try to get involved?

0:15:560:15:59

Or did you just go, "Whoa, I'm leaving that alone!"?

0:15:590:16:03

We had our own feuds going on!

0:16:030:16:04

No-one spoke to Ewan for 15 years!

0:16:070:16:09

Yeah, I was really upset about it.

0:16:090:16:11

So upset I actually did The Beach with Danny!

0:16:110:16:14

Hashtag Team Danny!

0:16:210:16:22

But very quickly, I was reading...

0:16:230:16:25

Because they were coming on, I was reading about this...

0:16:250:16:27

Who's Danny's actor now?!

0:16:270:16:29

I was reading about this. There's a story...

0:16:310:16:33

I don't know who told the story or how it ended up in the papers...

0:16:330:16:36

I'm reading this story and I'm thinking,

0:16:360:16:38

"Aw, this is obviously the lovely moment

0:16:380:16:41

"when they buried the hatchet and came together."

0:16:410:16:43

Talk us through the flight back from... Was it Shanghai?

0:16:430:16:46

-God!

-Oh, dear!

-Was it a 15-hour flight?

0:16:460:16:49

I'm on the plane to Shanghai to promote a movie and someone says,

0:16:490:16:52

"You know who the head of the jury is?"

0:16:520:16:53

And I went, "No," and they went, "Danny Boyle,"

0:16:530:16:56

thinking I'd be delighted and I was like,

0:16:560:16:58

"Oh my God! What are we going to say?"

0:16:580:17:00

And we bumped into each other at things and it was a bit awkward.

0:17:000:17:06

Anyway, then we come back home and cos we're all showbiz celebrities,

0:17:060:17:10

-we were flying first class.

-Of course.

0:17:100:17:11

And there was only three of us in first class -

0:17:110:17:13

Danny, me and my wife Eve -

0:17:130:17:16

and we were flying back and we were scattered around,

0:17:160:17:20

and then Eve falls asleep and her light goes off.

0:17:200:17:23

And I'm sitting there

0:17:230:17:25

and Danny's light's on and my light's on and I'm thinking,

0:17:250:17:30

"This is it, this is the moment!"

0:17:300:17:33

And I'm slightly behind, so I can see Danny...

0:17:330:17:36

I'm thinking, "This is it, this is..."

0:17:360:17:37

HE EXHALES

0:17:370:17:39

"This is when we just get it all out.

0:17:390:17:41

"I'll say 'I'm sorry' and he'll say 'I'm sorry' and we'll get on with it."

0:17:410:17:44

And we couldn't. We just sat there with our lights burning...

0:17:440:17:47

till, eventually, Danny's went off and mine went off!

0:17:470:17:51

But you're back together now. It's all good now. Very good.

0:17:530:17:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:17:560:17:59

It's... Hindsight's an amazing thing.

0:18:040:18:07

Now you look back and go,

0:18:070:18:08

"Of course Trainspotting was going to be a big hit."

0:18:080:18:10

Ewen, when you were in it, did you think, "Oh, this is a job,"

0:18:100:18:13

or did you kind of know,

0:18:130:18:14

"This is a good film. This is a really good film"?

0:18:140:18:17

Well, I had been working on the stage play, originally,

0:18:170:18:22

playing Ewan McGregor's part in the stage play.

0:18:220:18:25

And every night we were getting

0:18:250:18:26

this phenomenal, immediate response from audiences.

0:18:260:18:29

So I knew the material really was hitting a nerve.

0:18:290:18:34

And I was confident that this film was going to be

0:18:340:18:37

a strong piece and people were going to respond to it,

0:18:370:18:40

because I was seeing that every night on stage.

0:18:400:18:43

But none of us had any conception of the scale,

0:18:430:18:48

the profound effect and impact it was going to make on the culture.

0:18:480:18:52

And it was kind of overwhelming for myself

0:18:520:18:55

and I think probably for all of us.

0:18:550:18:58

You had The Full Monty coming out just like clockwork,

0:18:580:19:01

just, like, the next minute, so you were riding, like, sort of,

0:19:010:19:05

a double tidal wave.

0:19:050:19:07

It's interesting you mention The Full Monty.

0:19:070:19:10

Talking about "you don't know something's a hit when you're in it",

0:19:100:19:13

you REALLY didn't see "hit" written on The Full Monty?

0:19:130:19:16

I thought it was a load of fucking pish, to be honest!

0:19:160:19:18

I know a lot about this business!

0:19:230:19:26

It was a tough shoot. The Full Monty was a tough shoot.

0:19:270:19:29

It really, really was.

0:19:290:19:31

WOLF-WHISTLE

0:19:310:19:34

You've all heard this.

0:19:340:19:36

I don't mind hearing it again!

0:19:360:19:38

-How horrible was it?

-HORRIBLE horrible!

0:19:390:19:41

I tell you, it was so horrible that when the people...

0:19:410:19:45

Fox Searchlight, who made it, they saw the first cut of this thing

0:19:450:19:49

and they went, "Straight to video."

0:19:490:19:51

That's what they said.

0:19:510:19:52

-Wow!

-It was just very, very tough.

0:19:520:19:54

And the producer at the time, Uberto, he kind of begged

0:19:540:19:59

Fox Searchlight and said, "Look, we've got a hundred movies here -

0:19:590:20:02

"this guy's shot the ass off this thing.

0:20:020:20:05

"So give us a chance."

0:20:050:20:06

So he and...

0:20:060:20:08

They got rid of the editor, they got rid of the director,

0:20:080:20:11

and Uberto and Nick Moore, they brought on as an editor.

0:20:110:20:14

They cut together what you saw.

0:20:140:20:17

And this thing went from almost straight to video...

0:20:170:20:20

To date it's taken about 400 million or something.

0:20:210:20:23

Well, to the Oscars!

0:20:230:20:25

-It was up against Titanic...

-Astonishing.

0:20:250:20:29

-Astonishing.

-Crazy, yeah. It was amazing.

-Who knew? Who knew?

0:20:290:20:31

-Not you!

-Not me.

0:20:310:20:33

And, Jonny, you've got that rarest of things -

0:20:340:20:37

a really successful TV drama, Elementary, in America and here.

0:20:370:20:42

But even that... You said "no" to that, originally, didn't you?

0:20:420:20:45

Yeah, I said "no" to it cos of...

0:20:450:20:46

Sherlock was a great show - IS a great show -

0:20:480:20:50

and I was a big fan of it over here.

0:20:500:20:52

Oh, so that... Was Sherlock out first?

0:20:520:20:54

Yeah.

0:20:540:20:55

And so I was, like, "Oh, another incarnation of Sherlock Holmes?

0:20:550:21:00

"I don't think the world's ready for this at the moment."

0:21:000:21:02

And I said no.

0:21:020:21:04

And then I was persuaded by the differences in the show

0:21:040:21:08

and also the opportunity.

0:21:080:21:11

Really, I felt a bit arrogant to turn down the chance

0:21:110:21:16

to play such a wonderful character

0:21:160:21:18

with a great new script and there were enough differences.

0:21:180:21:20

I thought, "Who am I to turn down the lead in a network show?"

0:21:200:21:24

-Yeah.

-"At least give it a go."

0:21:240:21:26

And I'm glad I did!

0:21:260:21:29

It's such a lovely life now, cos you're settled,

0:21:290:21:32

-you're in New York...

-Ah, man!

0:21:320:21:33

Yeah, you get to have...

0:21:330:21:35

It's a tough schedule but I don't have to travel,

0:21:350:21:38

so I get to be a parent without having to disappear

0:21:380:21:41

for months at a time and I really dig that.

0:21:410:21:43

We're talking about that idea of what makes a hit.

0:21:430:21:46

Danny, you've made huge films -

0:21:460:21:49

28 Days Later, 127 Hours, Trainspotting, all those things -

0:21:490:21:52

but you've made films that...

0:21:520:21:53

Less successful and, er...

0:21:530:21:56

-Which ones?

-He's getting his own back now!

0:21:560:21:58

I can't name 'em!

0:21:580:21:59

I think you're looking great!

0:21:590:22:02

It's gloves off now!

0:22:020:22:03

I just wondered, as a director, what is the...

0:22:040:22:08

Maybe you never know,

0:22:080:22:10

or is there a bit in the process...

0:22:100:22:11

Is it in the edit? Is there a moment when you kind of go, "Oh..."?

0:22:110:22:15

Yeah. You...

0:22:150:22:17

You should believe in them all the time but I think,

0:22:170:22:20

deep down, you do know.

0:22:200:22:21

What's much more difficult to know is when you know

0:22:210:22:23

something's going to be a hit - no-one knows that.

0:22:230:22:26

It's like what Bobby said - you just don't know.

0:22:260:22:28

Otherwise there'd only ever be hit films.

0:22:280:22:30

Why would they release ones that wouldn't be a hit?

0:22:300:22:32

That's a very good point!

0:22:320:22:34

-And also, no-one tries to make a bad film.

-No...

0:22:340:22:36

Well, I don't know, actually. Sometimes...

0:22:360:22:38

But, no, you try not to.

0:22:390:22:41

And then, I suppose, the opposite of it is Ewan,

0:22:420:22:45

where you were being asked to do something that was a sure-fire

0:22:450:22:49

big hit with Star Wars.

0:22:490:22:52

Did you think long and hard about saying yes to that?

0:22:520:22:54

Oh, yeah, cos I didn't think it was me at all.

0:22:540:22:56

I felt like this sort of urban, indie, grungy actor, you know?

0:22:560:23:02

And I took an audition for it,

0:23:020:23:05

like almost every other young actor in the country did.

0:23:050:23:08

And then I didn't even think about it.

0:23:080:23:09

And then I got a bit closer and closer and then I think,

0:23:090:23:12

when I got to the last recall or something, I think called round.

0:23:120:23:17

I spoke to Danny, I spoke to my uncle,

0:23:170:23:19

who'd been in all three.

0:23:190:23:20

He said, "Don't do it!

0:23:200:23:22

"If you want a career after you're 30, don't do it!"

0:23:230:23:27

Anyway...

0:23:270:23:29

Cos I thought long and hard about it,

0:23:290:23:32

cos it didn't really feel like me at all.

0:23:320:23:33

But the closer I got to it, the more I wanted to do it.

0:23:330:23:36

When you got it, didn't you celebrate with your neighbours?

0:23:360:23:39

HE CHUCKLES

0:23:390:23:41

Yes, there was a birthday party at Noel Gallagher's place

0:23:410:23:45

round the corner from me in Belsize Park.

0:23:450:23:48

He is right in saying that he gave me my first lightsaber lesson.

0:23:480:23:53

It was at eight in the morning.

0:23:530:23:56

It must've been an early party!

0:23:560:23:58

-It was a pre-breakfast-type party!

-Yeah, yeah. Champagne?

0:23:590:24:04

We were in the back of the garden with plastic lightsabers,

0:24:040:24:07

having a ding-dong. It was funny.

0:24:070:24:09

Talking of Oasis, Oasis were the only one of

0:24:090:24:14

that generation of bands - they missed the Trainspotting boat.

0:24:140:24:17

Did they turn it down? Is that true, they turned it down?

0:24:170:24:19

I don't know. That's what they say. They say they didn't want

0:24:190:24:22

to get involved in a film about trainspotters!

0:24:220:24:24

I have no idea whether that's true.

0:24:240:24:26

I remember thinking, "We haven't got any Oasis on this."

0:24:260:24:28

And we couldn't fit any Oasis in.

0:24:280:24:30

So I don't know. They came to the party, anyway,

0:24:300:24:33

-which is the important thing!

-Yes!

0:24:330:24:36

Actually, people forget. That soundtrack... The CD...

0:24:360:24:39

I'm telling YOU. You know. Do you remember? That CD -

0:24:390:24:42

everybody had the Trainspotting soundtrack CD.

0:24:420:24:45

And the music on it was phenomenal.

0:24:450:24:47

David Bowie played some part in the music?

0:24:470:24:50

Oh, yeah, because we'd made a very small film, Shallow Grave,

0:24:500:24:54

which had done very well. But it wasn't, like, an international film.

0:24:540:24:57

And then suddenly we were asking for all these songs,

0:24:570:25:00

like Iggy Pop - Lust for Life, Lou Reed - Perfect Day.

0:25:000:25:03

And you can't really get at these people and you don't have the money

0:25:030:25:06

in our budget to pay for it. And suddenly we heard that David Bowie

0:25:060:25:10

had seen our film, Shallow Grave, and had waved through these tracks.

0:25:100:25:16

Cos he worked regularly with Lou Reed and was instrumental

0:25:160:25:19

in Iggy Pop's career. So, in the new film, we've got a little moment -

0:25:190:25:22

we thought, "How can we pay trib...?"

0:25:220:25:23

Cos he passed away the year we were making the film and we thought, "How can we pay a tribute to him?"

0:25:230:25:27

And you think about a song, and you think,

0:25:270:25:29

"Well, how can you just use one song?"

0:25:290:25:31

And there's a little moment where Ewan goes through

0:25:310:25:33

his old record collection and actually, what we did,

0:25:330:25:36

we turned all the sound off - which you're not meant

0:25:360:25:38

to do in movies - and it's just...

0:25:380:25:40

Even the sound of his finger on the record as he flips through the record pile.

0:25:400:25:43

And you just see a couple of his records and that is our silent

0:25:430:25:46

tribute to a man who filled the world with the most amazing

0:25:460:25:49

sounds for 50 years or more.

0:25:490:25:51

What a gorgeous thing.

0:25:510:25:52

Let's have another clip from the movie, T2 Trainspotting.

0:25:580:26:02

This is Begbie, hot on the heels of Renton.

0:26:420:26:43

# When you wanna suck to it

0:26:430:26:44

# Relax

0:26:440:26:46

# Don't do it... #

0:26:460:26:48

Come on, then, you...! Aargh!

0:26:480:26:50

HE ROARS

0:26:540:26:55

Go! Go!

0:26:570:26:59

APPLAUSE

0:27:130:27:15

Very good.

0:27:150:27:16

Now, Begbie. We must talk about Begbie.

0:27:190:27:21

Because, for you, that must have been...

0:27:210:27:23

Everyone, presumably, after that film, was just scared of you?

0:27:230:27:27

Yes!

0:27:270:27:29

They still are!

0:27:290:27:30

No, I've played quite a few...

0:27:310:27:33

It was great because it gave me an awful lot of other

0:27:330:27:36

Begbie-type parts to play. It gave me a career's worth of that.

0:27:360:27:39

But anybody that knows me knows I'm absolutely nothing like that,

0:27:390:27:43

at all! At all!

0:27:430:27:44

-EWEN MOUTHS No, but...

-Honestly!

0:27:440:27:47

I like that on either side of Trainspotting,

0:27:470:27:50

you were being the nicest policeman in the world.

0:27:500:27:52

You were in Hamish Macbeth with your lovely little Westie terrier!

0:27:520:27:55

CHEERING Oh, we're getting cheers for Hamish!

0:27:550:27:57

-CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

-Thanks very much.

0:27:570:27:59

No, it was lovely. It was a fantastic part to play.

0:27:590:28:02

These kind of parts, these psycho parts,

0:28:020:28:03

these are the... You can lose yourself.

0:28:030:28:06

Your imagination runs riot

0:28:060:28:08

and something like Begbie's just an absolute pleasure to play.

0:28:080:28:11

But even your son is aware of Begbie?

0:28:110:28:13

Yes, he is!

0:28:130:28:15

But how old is your son?

0:28:150:28:16

He's ten!

0:28:160:28:18

They're 10 and 12. I've got two sons, 10 and 12. My daughter's 14.

0:28:180:28:21

-Has he seen the film?

-No, he's not, but he...

0:28:210:28:23

He's aware of Begbie.

0:28:230:28:25

And he was certainly aware when I was shooting the film

0:28:250:28:28

last springtime.

0:28:280:28:29

Cos I didn't stay at home when I was playing the part.

0:28:290:28:32

Because you kinda... You've got a lot of stuff in your head

0:28:320:28:35

when you're playing a part like that.

0:28:350:28:37

And you don't necessarily...

0:28:370:28:38

You don't want to let it go every day when you go home,

0:28:380:28:41

because you need to dredge it back up the next day.

0:28:410:28:44

So it's best to stay away from the family during those moments.

0:28:440:28:47

Cos you don't want any chance of that slipping out at all.

0:28:470:28:50

But he was very aware that I was playing Begbie.

0:28:500:28:53

And he, er...

0:28:530:28:55

He dressed up accordingly when I went home one night.

0:28:550:28:58

I think we've got a little picture of him.

0:28:580:29:00

LAUGHTER

0:29:000:29:02

He disappeared up... He saw me coming in

0:29:050:29:07

and he disappeared upstairs and came back down with a moustache, going...

0:29:070:29:12

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:29:120:29:14

Now...Danny Boyle is here and we can't have you on the show

0:29:160:29:19

without mentioning the London Olympics 2012

0:29:190:29:22

and that incredible opening ceremony. Yes!

0:29:220:29:25

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:29:250:29:28

It's funny cos, actually, talking about the soundtrack,

0:29:320:29:35

I think people are nostalgic for IT because it was a moment when...

0:29:350:29:38

It did its job so brilliantly.

0:29:380:29:40

It made the UK love the UK and made us proud of being in the UK.

0:29:400:29:45

It was a massive privilege to do it and people were surprised that

0:29:450:29:48

I would want to do it because, you know,

0:29:480:29:51

the Beijing Olympics had been a huge thing and I thought,

0:29:510:29:53

"No, this is... We are amazing."

0:29:530:29:56

And we don't tell each other that very often

0:29:560:29:59

and that's a good thing, generally.

0:29:590:30:01

But occasionally we should take stock and say,

0:30:010:30:03

"We are absolutely amazing."

0:30:030:30:04

So we wanted to do that and we wanted to build it

0:30:040:30:06

round the volunteers, who came in their thousands

0:30:060:30:10

from everywhere, all over the country.

0:30:100:30:12

Everybody... These guys drove down from Glasgow.

0:30:120:30:14

They drove down through the night,

0:30:140:30:16

and then go back to work in hospitals in Glasgow.

0:30:160:30:19

It was an extraordinary kind of coming together of people.

0:30:190:30:21

It was really amazing.

0:30:210:30:22

And while we loved it, it sounds like it was an absolute

0:30:220:30:26

nightmare for you, though, to try to corral this thing

0:30:260:30:29

-and try to force it on.

-Well, I don't...

0:30:290:30:31

As these guys hopefully might testify,

0:30:310:30:33

I don't behave very kind of, like, dominantly as a...

0:30:330:30:37

-GRAHAM CHUCKLES

-as a director,

0:30:370:30:39

but occasionally on that thing, I had to.

0:30:390:30:43

In the worst kind of foot-stamping, screaming,

0:30:430:30:45

throwing-things-around kind of way, where you beat people over the head

0:30:450:30:49

with your awards and...

0:30:490:30:50

Anything you can muster to get your own way, you will do it.

0:30:500:30:54

Showing up with an Oscar.

0:30:540:30:56

Literally saying, "I will just... I'll go straight to the newspaper.

0:30:560:30:59

"I'll resign and go straight to the newspapers."

0:30:590:31:01

You'll do anything to get your way, you know, cos you have to kind of...

0:31:010:31:04

Cos there's this terrible sense of them trying to make it

0:31:040:31:07

the same as the last one and not letting our beauty shine through.

0:31:070:31:12

And we must just mention the Queen, cos you didn't think

0:31:120:31:16

the Queen was going to be in it, did you?

0:31:160:31:17

No, we had this idea, you know, the idea you saw in it,

0:31:170:31:20

but we thought, obviously, we should just tell her,

0:31:200:31:22

because it's a courtesy to say that we'll be impersonating her and,

0:31:220:31:25

you know, having this fun scene with James Bond and everything.

0:31:250:31:28

And then we got word through.

0:31:280:31:30

We were expecting, like, "Ooh, no,"

0:31:300:31:31

and, "We want to audition the double," or whatever,

0:31:310:31:34

"to make sure that it's tasteful."

0:31:340:31:36

And she said, no, she wanted to do it herself.

0:31:360:31:38

-Which was an astonishing moment, you know.

-Showbiz!

0:31:380:31:41

So I went to meet her, and I'm one of the few people

0:31:420:31:44

who've been in her private quarters, you know.

0:31:440:31:46

Well, there was that guy who jumped in Buckingham Palace.

0:31:460:31:49

Shouldn't really mention that.

0:31:490:31:51

Michael Fagan - good trivia question.

0:31:510:31:54

I didn't know it once - I've always known it since.

0:31:540:31:57

Michael Fagan.

0:31:570:31:58

Anyway, so I went in, cos we were setting up filming the sequence.

0:31:580:32:01

I went in and she said... She said,

0:32:010:32:03

"I'm not in a very good mood - I've just been to the dentist."

0:32:030:32:06

I thought, "Oh, right, OK."

0:32:060:32:08

She said, "What do you want me to do?"

0:32:080:32:10

And so we described the sequence, and then when we got on the set

0:32:100:32:13

and started doing it with Daniel Craig she said,

0:32:130:32:16

"I should say something, shouldn't I?

0:32:160:32:17

"Shouldn't I say something at this point?"

0:32:170:32:19

"Well, if you like."

0:32:190:32:21

So she said... Yeah, yeah, yeah,

0:32:220:32:24

so she said her line in the thing - that's her line. She improvised it.

0:32:240:32:27

And she's very sharp. Because you know, when you turn around...

0:32:270:32:29

You know this. When you turn round when you're filming and do it from

0:32:290:32:32

the other way, there's always a half-hour delay.

0:32:320:32:34

She remembered everything exactly like that.

0:32:340:32:36

You know, there were no continuity errors, guys. Like...

0:32:360:32:40

Wow! Cannot let it go.

0:32:430:32:45

And very... Yet, you did turn down the knighthood.

0:32:480:32:51

Lots of people walked away from that whole thing with honours.

0:32:510:32:55

No-one would have begrudged you a knighthood.

0:32:550:32:58

You know, I feel like you deserve to be Sir Danny Boyle after that.

0:32:580:33:01

It's just not my cup of tea. My dad would have spun in his grave.

0:33:010:33:04

He'd just been... Just, like, no.

0:33:040:33:06

So it just wasn't my cup of tea. I'm fine.

0:33:060:33:09

I'm very, very fortunate in what I do.

0:33:090:33:11

I already have plenty of rewards, like working with these guys.

0:33:110:33:15

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:33:150:33:16

Even they're not buying it. And it's them.

0:33:170:33:20

Just before we finish tonight, there's one thing we haven't

0:33:210:33:25

talked about tonight.

0:33:250:33:27

That is that iconic poster, the 1996 publicity campaign.

0:33:270:33:31

Because, again, it broke the mould -

0:33:310:33:33

that isn't what a film poster looked like.

0:33:330:33:37

Is it true this was the day after...

0:33:370:33:39

Was it the wrap party?

0:33:390:33:40

-You're asking us like we would remember.

-Asking the wrong guys!

0:33:410:33:45

The story... The legend is that you weren't

0:33:450:33:47

feeling the best for this.

0:33:470:33:49

I think that's right. I think me...

0:33:490:33:51

I remember travelling in a taxi with you at, like,

0:33:510:33:53

5am in the morning to go to Glasgow Airport after the wrap party,

0:33:530:33:59

so that we could go down and do this shoot in London.

0:33:590:34:01

Is that when I blinded you with my Cockney accent?

0:34:010:34:04

Yeah, and then he started...

0:34:040:34:05

I'd only known Jonny, for the entire shoot, as a Scotsman,

0:34:050:34:08

and then in the taxi after the wrap party, he started talking

0:34:080:34:12

to me in his own accent and I was really disorientated and

0:34:120:34:14

a bit stunned, you know?

0:34:140:34:17

As a special treat... I notice...

0:34:210:34:23

I see Kelly, obviously not here. Diane, not here.

0:34:230:34:26

So I thought, just as a treat, if...

0:34:260:34:29

I... I could be Kelly.

0:34:290:34:32

If we could recreate this very, very quickly...

0:34:330:34:35

So if you stand up and get out...

0:34:350:34:39

Just to there.

0:34:400:34:42

So, in what order...

0:34:420:34:43

So, you're down this end. You're down this end, Robert.

0:34:430:34:46

Then what is it? It's...

0:34:460:34:48

Robert? Then I'd be in the gap. Then who's next?

0:34:480:34:51

You're at the end. OK.

0:34:510:34:53

Now, I do have some props.

0:34:530:34:55

I need to see this a bit clearer.

0:34:550:34:57

Embarrassingly, I'm dressed almost exactly the same way.

0:34:570:35:00

Oh, that's right!

0:35:000:35:02

Did you know we were doing this, Ewan?

0:35:020:35:04

Like, "I've shaved my head specially for this."

0:35:040:35:06

Yeah, I did.

0:35:060:35:08

That's for you, a little moustache and a cigarette.

0:35:080:35:11

Thank you very much.

0:35:110:35:12

-They are Spud's glasses.

-Wicked!

0:35:120:35:15

Now, Jonny, if you want to go... Do you want to go full blonde?

0:35:150:35:19

How can I not?

0:35:190:35:20

OK, do it, do it, do it!

0:35:200:35:22

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:35:220:35:25

I've got my Kelly wig.

0:35:260:35:29

OK. You're doing very well.

0:35:290:35:30

OK, now... Now...

0:35:300:35:32

We'll put up the graphics.

0:35:320:35:34

Move you that way... That way...

0:35:360:35:38

I'm this way, so you're there.

0:35:380:35:42

Yeah, you're good. OK.

0:35:420:35:44

And we're all doing it to that camera.

0:35:440:35:46

So, which one am I leaning against?

0:35:460:35:48

-I'm leaning towards you, aren't I?

-Seductively.

0:35:480:35:50

Are we all doing it? Are we all doing it?

0:35:520:35:54

-Yeah...

-CHEERING

0:35:540:35:56

We did it. Very good. Excellent.

0:35:580:36:00

Beautifully done. Thank you very much.

0:36:000:36:02

Thank you very much. Have a seat, do.

0:36:020:36:04

That was amazing.

0:36:070:36:08

Nicely done, nicely done.

0:36:080:36:11

We won't compare them.

0:36:110:36:13

Listen, good luck with the film.

0:36:130:36:14

I must say... Trainspotting Three.

0:36:140:36:17

Now, people are already talking about Trainspotting Three.

0:36:170:36:19

Will we all be here in 20 years talking about that?

0:36:190:36:23

I hope not.

0:36:230:36:24

Not for the film - I'd love to see the film, I just...

0:36:260:36:29

That sounded rude - it wasn't meant to be.

0:36:290:36:31

I just can't imagine being here in 20 years.

0:36:310:36:34

Still going, "What was it like?"

0:36:360:36:38

This is your own private torment, Graham.

0:36:410:36:43

Imagine looking at old clips then! Jesus!

0:36:460:36:49

Well, the idea came from...

0:36:500:36:53

Scotch accent.

0:36:570:36:59

Ewan actually had a great idea about that,

0:37:000:37:02

for it to be a rest home for the junkies, called Skagdale.

0:37:020:37:06

Lying aboot.

0:37:070:37:08

T3, right there. Hey, it's time for music.

0:37:080:37:11

This singer-songwriter was last year crowned

0:37:110:37:14

the BBC's Introducing Artist Of The Year

0:37:140:37:16

and is tipped for the top in 2017.

0:37:160:37:18

Here performing Talking To You, it's Izzy Bizu.

0:37:180:37:21

# Just the tears

0:40:270:40:29

0:40:350:40:39

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Thank you.

0:40:430:40:46

Izzy Bizu, everybody. Come and join me, do.

0:40:490:40:52

-That was gorgeous!

-Thank you.

-Thank you so much. Come here.

0:40:520:40:56

That's the cast of Trainspotting.

0:40:580:40:59

There you go.

0:40:590:41:01

There you go. Lovely.

0:41:030:41:05

APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

0:41:050:41:08

Aw, thank you so much.

0:41:080:41:09

Have a seat there.

0:41:090:41:11

-Hey, Izzy!

-Hi!

0:41:120:41:14

How old were you when the first Trainspotting movie came out?

0:41:140:41:17

Er, I think I was two.

0:41:170:41:18

There you go! In your face, Danny Boyle.

0:41:180:41:21

Thank you, Graham.

0:41:210:41:22

But you've seen it, haven't you?

0:41:240:41:25

Er, yeah. I'm not going to lie - I saw it two days ago.

0:41:250:41:28

I'm really late on the bandwagon, but it's so amazing.

0:41:280:41:31

-It's really, really good - blew my mind.

-OK.

0:41:310:41:33

Now, your album is out now - that's A Moment Of Madness.

0:41:330:41:36

-And the single is also out now.

-Mm-hm, yeah.

0:41:360:41:39

-But separately.

-Yes.

0:41:390:41:40

That is correct. OK, I'm just checking.

0:41:400:41:43

And so, when the BBC Introducing thing happened,

0:41:430:41:46

where had you been before that?

0:41:460:41:48

How did they find you?

0:41:480:41:49

I was literally, like, writing in my bedroom

0:41:490:41:52

with my guitarist, and we did, like, White Tiger there.

0:41:520:41:55

And then we decided to put the song up on the BBC Introducing website

0:41:550:41:59

and they picked it up and started playing it.

0:41:590:42:01

They've been really cool ever since, so...

0:42:010:42:03

That is fantastic. It's great that you CAN do it without reality,

0:42:030:42:06

-you can do it without all those things.

-Yeah, it's nice.

0:42:060:42:09

And I love that song. I think it's on the A list on Radio 2,

0:42:090:42:12

so we're playing it all the time.

0:42:120:42:14

-Oh, well...

-Congratulations.

-Thank you.

-Izzy Bizu, everybody!

0:42:140:42:17

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:42:170:42:19

Nearly time to go, but I believe

0:42:210:42:25

we can have a visit to the big red chair before that.

0:42:250:42:28

Who's there? Hello.

0:42:280:42:29

-Hi.

-Hello.

-Hi. What's your name?

0:42:290:42:31

-My name's Pam.

-Pam? Lovely, Pam.

0:42:310:42:34

What do you do, Pam?

0:42:340:42:35

I just retired, just before Christmas. I was an administrator.

0:42:350:42:38

An administrator. What did you administrate?

0:42:380:42:42

Yes, well, I was PA to a managing partner of a financial team.

0:42:420:42:46

-You must be so glad to be not doing that any more.

-I am.

0:42:460:42:50

Off you go with your story.

0:42:500:42:51

OK, well, I was going to take minutes at a very important

0:42:510:42:55

board meeting and my boss said,

0:42:550:42:58

"It's going to be an all-day meeting."

0:42:580:42:59

I said, "Well, that's fine, but can I bring my dog in?

0:42:590:43:03

"She won't be any problem."

0:43:030:43:05

I said, "Because I'm not going to be able to get home."

0:43:050:43:07

And he said, "Yes, but, Pam, you've got to realise

0:43:070:43:09

"it's a very important meeting and she's really got to be quiet.

0:43:090:43:13

I said, "You won't know she's here.

0:43:130:43:15

"She'll just sit by the telephone exchange and she'll be with Monica."

0:43:150:43:19

So I brought Woofer in and I put her...

0:43:190:43:21

-LAUGHTER

-..underneath the telephone...

0:43:210:43:24

Can I just say...

0:43:240:43:27

I can't imagine who you meet in the park shouting that! But...

0:43:270:43:31

We had to change it! We had to change it.

0:43:310:43:34

"Woofer!" The trees all part.

0:43:340:43:36

-Sorry, Pam.

-We used to call her Woof but when we were in the woods

0:43:390:43:42

going, "Woof, Woof, Woof, Woof," when she disappeared,

0:43:420:43:45

it did look a bit silly.

0:43:450:43:47

Anyway, so I put Woofer by Monica, and I said,

0:43:470:43:50

"She won't do anything. She'll be fine."

0:43:500:43:52

Went in to take the minutes.

0:43:520:43:54

Halfway through a very heated meeting and big debate,

0:43:540:43:57

all of a sudden, there was this agonising, hair-raising howl.

0:43:570:44:02

It was just awful.

0:44:020:44:04

I didn't know what had happened.

0:44:040:44:06

I looked at my boss and he looked at me

0:44:060:44:08

and all of us ran out to reception.

0:44:080:44:11

We looked at Woofer and she was lying there going,

0:44:110:44:14

"Ah-ya-ya-ya-ya! Ah-ya-ya-ya-ya!"

0:44:140:44:16

Because she'd actually bitten through the telephone cables

0:44:160:44:20

on the telephone exchange,

0:44:200:44:21

and I looked at my boss and I thought, "Oh, my God."

0:44:210:44:24

I picked her up but as I picked her up, I didn't know what to do.

0:44:240:44:29

Her bodily functions just worked like a machinegun.

0:44:290:44:32

I was looking at my boss and it was just...

0:44:330:44:36

SHE IMITATES MACHINEGUN

0:44:360:44:38

All over him. I don't know why I did this

0:44:380:44:40

but, in slow motion, I just carried on looking at everybody else.

0:44:400:44:45

And everybody was just...

0:44:450:44:47

"Oh, my God, this is disgusting!"

0:44:470:44:49

And I was so horrified.

0:44:490:44:50

And then after Woofer got over her trauma,

0:44:500:44:53

I was still holding her and I looked at my boss and said,

0:44:530:44:56

"Shall we carry on with the minutes?

0:44:560:44:58

"Do you want to do any other business?"

0:44:580:45:02

-And that's my story.

-Good story, Pam!

0:45:030:45:06

That was a good one. A stunt dog!

0:45:060:45:08

-You can walk. Sorry, you can walk.

-Oh, OK.

0:45:110:45:14

APPLAUSE DROWNS SPEECH

0:45:170:45:20

Time for one more? Oh, go on.

0:45:200:45:22

-What's your name?

-Rosana.

0:45:220:45:24

-Where are you from?

-Spain.

0:45:240:45:26

-What do you do?

-I study a Masters in biomedical engineering.

0:45:260:45:30

Great! Er...

0:45:300:45:31

Best of luck with that.

0:45:340:45:36

Off you go with your story.

0:45:360:45:38

So, in Year Seven, when I was, like, 12 years old, my parents thought

0:45:380:45:42

it would be a great idea for me to learn English to come to the UK

0:45:420:45:45

in a boarding school.

0:45:450:45:46

At first, I knew no English at all.

0:45:460:45:49

So, one day, there wasn't a pillow on my bed,

0:45:490:45:51

so I asked a roommate how that was said,

0:45:510:45:53

so I could ask for one.

0:45:530:45:54

And she told me it was called a dildo.

0:45:540:45:57

-So...

-LAUGHTER

0:45:570:46:00

-I didn't...

-I like her!

0:46:000:46:03

Yeah, I loved her from that moment on!

0:46:030:46:05

So I didn't know, so I was going to ask the matron

0:46:050:46:09

but that night, the headmaster of the school came

0:46:090:46:12

to switch off the lights.

0:46:120:46:14

So me, innocently and as polite as I could,

0:46:140:46:17

went there to ask for a dildo so I could sleep.

0:46:170:46:20

That was a good story. You can walk.

0:46:230:46:26

Well done, everyone.

0:46:290:46:31
