Good evening, everyone. I'm Anthony Joshua,

0:00:020:00:03

-and you're watching The Graham Norton Show.

-Hey, hey!

0:00:030:00:06

Anthony! I'm Tom Hanks and I'm supposed to be the one to say,

0:00:060:00:09

-"You're watching The Graham Norton Show"!

-Well, I got in first.

0:00:090:00:11

-So I'm Anthony Joshua...

-You know what?

0:00:110:00:14

I knew it was going to come down to this!

0:00:140:00:16

Go ahead! Roll credits while I throw this guy a beating!

0:00:160:00:20

CHEERING

0:00:200:00:23

Oh! Oh!

0:00:380:00:40

Why, thank you!

0:00:410:00:43

Thank you very much. Thank you. Oh! Oh! Wow!

0:00:430:00:49

Wow, wow! Hello and welcome.

0:00:490:00:53

Happy New Year, all.

0:00:530:00:55

I tell you, we've got some great men and women on the show tonight,

0:00:550:00:57

and before anyone asks, yes, they're all being paid the same.

0:00:570:01:01

LAUGHTER

0:01:010:01:02

WHISPERING: Nothing. Nothing at all.

0:01:020:01:05

Are you all well?

0:01:050:01:06

I only ask that because I know a lot of people have been sick

0:01:060:01:09

over Christmas and New Year, haven't they?

0:01:090:01:10

Even Theresa May had something unpleasant

0:01:100:01:12

she couldn't seem to get rid of.

0:01:120:01:14

Yeah.

0:01:140:01:15

Jeremy Hunt, he's like the political equivalent of herpes, isn't he?

0:01:170:01:21

Theresa May said her reshuffle would make the Tory Cabinet look

0:01:210:01:24

less pale, male and stale.

0:01:240:01:26

So whereas before it looked like this...

0:01:260:01:29

..now it looks like this! HE GASPS

0:01:300:01:32

LAUGHTER

0:01:320:01:33

So well done, Theresa.

0:01:330:01:36

Meanwhile, in America, a new book about Donald Trump's presidency

0:01:360:01:39

has caused quite the storm. It's called Fire And Fury.

0:01:390:01:43

It came out last week - I mean, the book, not Trump -

0:01:430:01:46

that WOULD be a story!

0:01:460:01:47

Not on my watch!

0:01:470:01:49

Now, I have to warn you, it's one of those books with a very sad ending.

0:01:510:01:56

He's still president.

0:01:560:01:58

The book claims Trump steals all his ideas from other people.

0:01:580:02:01

Well, he certainly got the idea for the Mexican wall

0:02:010:02:03

from when Melania redid their bedroom.

0:02:030:02:06

LAUGHTER

0:02:060:02:08

Hey, let's get some guests on!

0:02:080:02:11

Later, we'll have music from Swedish folk rock duo First Aid Kit.

0:02:110:02:15

Yeah! But first, this man broke box office records

0:02:150:02:19

with the fight of the decade.

0:02:190:02:20

He's an Olympic Gold medallist, an MBE,

0:02:200:02:22

and the heavyweight champion of the world -

0:02:220:02:24

please welcome Anthony Joshua!

0:02:240:02:26

CHEERING

0:02:260:02:29

That's Anthony Joshua.

0:02:290:02:31

Hello, sir! Very nice to see you. Come in. Have a seat.

0:02:310:02:34

Anthony Joshua!

0:02:340:02:36

This Emmy-winning British actress

0:02:370:02:39

continues to wow audiences worldwide in Game Of Thrones.

0:02:390:02:42

Now lending her voice to Aardman's latest animated hit, Early Man,

0:02:420:02:47

it's Maisie Williams!

0:02:470:02:49

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:02:490:02:51

Oh! Shimmery, sparkly!

0:02:510:02:53

Beautiful! Hello, my dear.

0:02:530:02:55

Lovely to see you.

0:02:550:02:56

There's Anthony. Maisie.

0:02:560:02:58

And what better way to start the year

0:02:580:03:01

than with a double Oscar-winning Hollywood great?

0:03:010:03:03

Please welcome one of our all-time favourite guests -

0:03:030:03:06

it's the great Tom Hanks!

0:03:060:03:08

CHEERING

0:03:080:03:12

Beautiful. Tom, good to see you.

0:03:120:03:15

Have a seat, have a seat.

0:03:180:03:20

Oh! Welcome, all. Thank you so much for being here.

0:03:200:03:24

Lovely to see you all. Now I suppose I should check...

0:03:240:03:27

So, Tom, are you a boxing fan? Are you aware of Anthony Joshua's work?

0:03:270:03:31

I'm aware of that there's always a bodacious heavyweight champion

0:03:310:03:35

of the world and I'm sitting on the couch with him right now.

0:03:350:03:37

He'd better not piss me off.

0:03:370:03:40

LAUGHTER

0:03:400:03:42

And everyone loves Game Of Thrones. Everyone loves Game Of Thrones. Yes!

0:03:440:03:48

-Thank you.

-It must be weird, you're in the biggest show in the world.

0:03:480:03:52

-Well done, you!

-I know.

0:03:520:03:53

-Where do I go now?

-Really.

0:03:530:03:56

No - other places, bigger things.

0:03:560:03:59

Don't crush the girl's dreams, Graham.

0:03:590:04:01

But, here's an honour -

0:04:010:04:03

it's very rare we have a guest who is on a stamp.

0:04:030:04:07

Oh, look at that!

0:04:070:04:08

Have you seen this yet? Look at that! Maisie Williams on a stamp.

0:04:080:04:12

-Proper thing - Queen's head and everything.

-Let me see.

-Yeah!

0:04:120:04:15

-I've not actually seen this yet.

-It's a stamp.

0:04:170:04:20

In America...

0:04:200:04:22

In America, you have to be dead to get on a stamp.

0:04:220:04:25

Was your character killed?

0:04:250:04:27

-No.

-Not yet.

-Not yet.

0:04:270:04:30

It's nice. It's a collector's piece.

0:04:300:04:32

No, it is a collector's piece, yeah.

0:04:320:04:33

Please, let me put on my glasses so I can see because... Oh, my!

0:04:330:04:37

How fantastic! How much does this stamp go for?

0:04:370:04:40

One pence.

0:04:400:04:42

Well, it's a first class stamp, whatever that is.

0:04:430:04:45

-Which goes for what?

-I don't know.

0:04:450:04:47

You don't know! You and your e-mail!

0:04:470:04:49

LAUGHTER

0:04:490:04:51

-Just cos you're in a movie called The Post!

-Yeah!

0:04:510:04:53

Lot of stamps in that movie, let me tell you.

0:04:530:04:56

-And then, Anthony Joshua has his own postbox.

-Yeah, yeah.

-You do.

0:04:560:05:01

Got a picture of that.

0:05:010:05:03

-This is... Where is this?

-This is in Watford in Hertfordshire.

0:05:030:05:06

SCATTERED CHEERS Lovely.

0:05:060:05:07

-Yeah.

-And how do we know it's yours?

0:05:070:05:09

I don't know if my name's on it, I don't know what...

0:05:090:05:12

-But you know it's yours?

-I know, that's the main thing.

0:05:120:05:14

-I know it's mine.

-How do you know his isn't the newspaper box?

0:05:140:05:18

I'm claiming that as well. I'm claiming anything!

0:05:200:05:23

You got a gold and a red medal at the Olympics.

0:05:230:05:26

We're very proud of you!

0:05:260:05:27

Anthony Joshua, he's only two belts away from total world domination.

0:05:270:05:31

-Wow!

-But here's the thing -

0:05:310:05:33

you are actively looking for a cool boxing name.

0:05:330:05:37

I haven't got one.

0:05:370:05:38

No, so it's Anthony AJ Joshua right now?

0:05:380:05:41

-You can say that, yeah, Anthony AJ.

-That's your name.

0:05:410:05:45

That's my name, yes. It works.

0:05:450:05:47

-You're right.

-It works!

0:05:480:05:51

But have you tried any cool names?

0:05:510:05:54

Honestly, um...Big Josh.

0:05:540:05:57

They call my dad Big Josh, I'm Big Josh, I don't know!

0:05:570:06:00

-How about Mailbox Joshua?

-Mail...

0:06:000:06:02

I deliver!

0:06:020:06:05

-Oh!

-I think we... I think that's it!

0:06:050:06:10

-That's it!

-Right here, my friend.

0:06:100:06:12

-Tom Hanks did it.

-Yeah.

-That's good.

-It's very good.

0:06:120:06:17

And before we move on, I have a thank you to say,

0:06:170:06:20

because Tom Hanks very kindly... I was at work and I got this.

0:06:200:06:24

you sent me a copy of your book, and I was, you know, thrilled,

0:06:240:06:27

cos it's a lovely cover...

0:06:270:06:29

-Hold that bad boy up!

-Yeah.

0:06:290:06:30

So I got the book, and then I opened it up, I opened it up and look!

0:06:320:06:35

-It was signed.

-I like that.

0:06:350:06:37

"To Graham Norton, enjoy the read, Tom Hanks."

0:06:370:06:40

Now, I have to say, I'll be honest,

0:06:400:06:41

when I saw it was to Graham Norton, I thought,

0:06:410:06:44

"He's no recollection of who I am,"

0:06:440:06:45

he's just been sat in a room and told to write my name,

0:06:450:06:47

but I didn't mind, I was still thrilled,

0:06:470:06:50

but now I feel you didn't think I was going to read it, did you?

0:06:500:06:54

I thought that you would put it on a pile of other things

0:06:540:06:57

that came to you unbidden and it would lay there for years.

0:06:570:07:00

And can you tell the people what you did to ensure

0:07:000:07:03

that you knew whether or not I read it?

0:07:030:07:05

Well, the canary in a coal mine

0:07:050:07:08

is a little thing you put in a contract that says,

0:07:080:07:11

if that is in your dressing room,

0:07:110:07:13

that means they've read your contract.

0:07:130:07:15

Like, "I insist on brown M&Ms only,"

0:07:150:07:19

so if you've come in and only brown M&Ms are there -

0:07:190:07:21

"Ah, these people have read the contract."

0:07:210:07:23

They saw the canary in a coal mine.

0:07:230:07:25

So I put a little message in there for you to see if, in fact,

0:07:250:07:27

you would read the book.

0:07:270:07:29

Yes, cos when I got to page 57, I got this message.

0:07:290:07:33

-What is it?

-"Graham, screw you!"

0:07:330:07:36

LAUGHTER

0:07:360:07:38

I'm so glad I read it!

0:07:380:07:40

Why I didn't put it on page 357, I'll never know.

0:07:450:07:48

-I gave you some slack there.

-Do you do that for all of them?

0:07:480:07:52

It's a very funny thing to do.

0:07:520:07:53

To the people I think deserve a little nudge, yes, yes, I do.

0:07:530:07:57

Listen, Tom Hanks, you're here to tell us about your new movie,

0:07:570:08:00

the Steven Spielberg movie,

0:08:000:08:02

-The Post.

-Yes.

0:08:020:08:03

It opens next Friday, the 19th, and this is...

0:08:030:08:06

It's one of those... The pedigree is crazy.

0:08:060:08:08

-It's Hanks, it's Streep, it's Spielberg.

-Yeah.

0:08:080:08:12

That's a lot of marquee, if you know what I mean.

0:08:120:08:15

Big trailers. Er, yeah. Yeah.

0:08:160:08:19

We all read this independently of each other

0:08:190:08:22

and said, "Well, I'd like to be involved with this."

0:08:220:08:24

And, lo and behold, Magic Meryl did, too,

0:08:240:08:27

and then I got the call from Steven

0:08:270:08:28

and he said he was going to suit me up and put me in again, so...

0:08:280:08:31

And have you ever come close to working with Meryl Streep before?

0:08:310:08:34

Not a whit. Actually, I was officially... Thank you.

0:08:340:08:36

Oh, I have to say the title of the movie first.

0:08:360:08:39

-I was officially a producer of Mamma Mia!

-Oh, yes!

0:08:390:08:42

-How about that? Thank you.

-APPLAUSE

0:08:420:08:46

-No, no, no. No.

-Mama Mia! 2 on the way.

-Yes, it's coming.

0:08:460:08:50

And I tried... I actually tried out for the role...

0:08:500:08:54

I wanted to hire myself,

0:08:540:08:56

but my singing voice would have scared the children, so...

0:08:560:09:00

But, no, this was the first time that I got to call her,

0:09:000:09:05

-appear in a cohort.

-Wow!

0:09:050:09:08

It's hard to get used to working with Meryl,

0:09:080:09:10

because she has these trumpet players

0:09:100:09:12

that come on to the set just before she does.

0:09:120:09:15

HE TOOTS A FANFARE

0:09:150:09:19

"Ladies and gentlemen, Meryl Streep. Please do not look her in the eye."

0:09:190:09:23

She comes in and.... I'm ragging on her.

0:09:240:09:27

She's great fun and a magnificent person to work with.

0:09:270:09:30

But the story about The Washington Post,

0:09:300:09:32

tell the people about who you play.

0:09:320:09:34

I play Ben Bradlee and she plays Katharine Graham

0:09:340:09:36

of The Washington Post of All The President's Men fame -

0:09:360:09:39

-Nixon and Watergate.

-Hm-mm.

0:09:390:09:41

This actually happened prior to that,

0:09:410:09:43

when it was the old New York Post, it was...

0:09:430:09:46

The Pentagon Papers, the top-secret report on America's

0:09:460:09:50

involvement in the Vietnam War,

0:09:500:09:52

is printed by the New York Times for three days,

0:09:520:09:56

and, as competitors, we want to be able to report

0:09:560:09:59

the same story as well but we don't have the Pentagon Papers.

0:09:590:10:02

While we get our sources,

0:10:020:10:04

the Justice Department in the Richard Nixon White House

0:10:040:10:08

shuts down the New York Times from printing any more about this story,

0:10:080:10:11

so for us to get them and to write them up and to print them ourselves

0:10:110:10:15

risked Katharine Graham losing the newspaper,

0:10:150:10:19

myself being thrown in jail,

0:10:190:10:20

as literally for seditious acts against the state.

0:10:200:10:24

And it is really chilling, cos you used the real Nixon tapes.

0:10:240:10:30

Oh, our movie stars as Richard Nixon...Richard Nixon,

0:10:300:10:34

and he is fantastic!

0:10:340:10:37

He's great.

0:10:370:10:38

But the thing about working with Steven is...

0:10:380:10:40

Much of this deals with old-fashioned telephones.

0:10:400:10:43

No-one can capture the suspicion or the suspense of either a phone call

0:10:430:10:48

being made or a phone call being waited upon,

0:10:480:10:51

so there's an awful lot of these

0:10:510:10:53

fabulously dynamic scenes in the movie.

0:10:530:10:56

Hello?

0:10:590:11:00

These are kind of like old-fashioned pay phones, you know, coin boxes.

0:11:000:11:05

LAUGHTER

0:11:050:11:08

Cher-king! Cher-king! Cher-king! Cher-king!

0:11:080:11:13

DIALLING NUMBERS NOISE

0:11:130:11:16

Goes on for ever, and you are on the edge of your seat -

0:11:160:11:19

"Make the call! Please make the phone call!"

0:11:190:11:22

That's what Steven Spielberg can do like nobody else.

0:11:220:11:24

Listen, we've got a clip.

0:11:240:11:26

-This is your character, Ben Bradlee, presenting your dilemma...

-Oh!

0:11:260:11:29

..to the publisher, Katharine Graham.

0:11:290:11:31

So can I ask you a hypothetical question?

0:11:330:11:35

Oh, dear, I don't like hypothetical questions.

0:11:350:11:37

Well, I don't think you're going to like the real one, either.

0:11:370:11:41

Do you have the Papers?

0:11:430:11:44

Not yet.

0:11:460:11:48

Oh, gosh. Oh, gosh.

0:11:510:11:52

Because you know the-the position that would put me in. You know...

0:11:520:11:57

We have language in the prospectus...

0:11:570:12:00

Yeah, I know, I know that the bankers can change their mind

0:12:000:12:02

and I know what is at stake.

0:12:020:12:05

You know, the only couple I knew that both Kennedy

0:12:050:12:08

and LBJ both wanted to socialise with was you and your husband,

0:12:080:12:12

and you own the damn paper.

0:12:120:12:14

That's the way things worked.

0:12:150:12:17

Politicians and the press, they trusted each other, so they could go

0:12:170:12:20

to the same dinner party and drink cocktails and tell jokes

0:12:200:12:22

while there was a war raging in Vietnam...

0:12:220:12:24

Ben, I don't know what we're talking about. I'm not protecting Lyndon...

0:12:240:12:28

No, you got his former Secretary Of Defense, Robert McNamara,

0:12:280:12:30

the man who commissioned the study...

0:12:300:12:33

I'm not protecting him, I'm not protecting any of them,

0:12:330:12:36

I'm protecting the paper.

0:12:360:12:37

You know what was real funny about that?

0:12:390:12:41

If I may say...

0:12:410:12:43

Um...

0:12:430:12:45

In the United States, I grew up saying "Viet-narm"

0:12:450:12:48

cos on the West Coast, we said, "Viet-narm, Viet-narm, Viet-narm,"

0:12:480:12:51

and Ben Bradlee called it "Viet-nam" and it was often...

0:12:510:12:55

I said, "Listen, while there was a war going on in Viet...NAM..."

0:12:550:13:00

I had to retrain myself, my vocalisation.

0:13:000:13:05

And this is... We were counting up.

0:13:050:13:07

I think it's about the seventh or eighth real person you've played.

0:13:070:13:11

-Oh, yeah, I have.

-If the people are still alive,

0:13:110:13:13

do you like to meet them, do you seek them out?

0:13:130:13:16

Yes, and in fact, I say to them,

0:13:160:13:18

I've said this to Richard Phillips and I said it to Charlie Wilson,

0:13:180:13:22

Jim Lovell, I said, "Now, look, I'm playing you.

0:13:220:13:26

"So, for good or for bad, I'm you,

0:13:260:13:29

"and you're going to get that for a long time - I'm you, I'm you.

0:13:290:13:33

"Deal with it.

0:13:330:13:35

"Now, as you, I'm going to say things you never said,

0:13:350:13:40

"I'm going to go places you never were,

0:13:400:13:43

"I'm going to do things you never did.

0:13:430:13:46

"That being the case, I'd like to be as authentic as possible."

0:13:460:13:50

LAUGHTER

0:13:500:13:51

And the rest is trading cards.

0:13:510:13:54

And when you meet them, are you just looking for their blessing,

0:13:540:13:57

or do you kind of absorb something, do you get something out of it?

0:13:570:14:00

I do want to know what they have to say about it,

0:14:000:14:01

cos they've always read the screenplay and I want to say,

0:14:010:14:04

"If you think anything is actually horse cock in this,

0:14:040:14:06

"let me know, because..."

0:14:060:14:08

What did I just say?!

0:14:080:14:09

LAUGHTER

0:14:090:14:11

We all heard you.

0:14:110:14:12

"If there's some nonsense in this, please..."

0:14:120:14:15

I didn't know that was an expression!

0:14:160:14:18

Once again, we've got "he delivers"

0:14:180:14:21

and you have what I just said as well.

0:14:210:14:24

It's all been mine, right here on your top-notch show.

0:14:240:14:27

You want to know if they have any problems

0:14:270:14:30

because there's things that just would never happen,

0:14:300:14:32

you want to be right and authentic, but really what I'm looking for

0:14:320:14:36

is a tic, a gesture, a posture, a way to stand, a turn of phrase

0:14:360:14:40

that I could turn into my own and reflect them somehow.

0:14:400:14:43

Cos it's inevitable, ladies and gentlemen,

0:14:430:14:45

we will be queuing up to see the Anthony Joshua Story.

0:14:450:14:47

So when the biopic is made, who would you like to play you?

0:14:470:14:52

-Tom Hanks.

-Yeah!

0:14:520:14:54

LAUGHTER

0:14:540:14:56

-Let me tell you, let me tell you...

-Get some tanning on!

0:14:560:14:59

I will say things you never said.

0:15:010:15:04

I will do things you never did.

0:15:040:15:06

-I will go places you've never been.

-You will go places I never went!

0:15:060:15:09

That said, I'm going to be you.

0:15:090:15:12

What's interesting is, the news of today, all the fake news

0:15:120:15:16

and everything, and then what you just starred in.

0:15:160:15:20

What's the feedback of the times, cos you brought a film...

0:15:200:15:24

Actually, they... A lot of people are saying that,

0:15:240:15:27

"Well, you obviously made this about current events,

0:15:270:15:30

"you obviously changed things around and steered it towards 2017."

0:15:300:15:34

The truth is, we didn't change a thing!

0:15:340:15:36

All we did was reflect the historic record

0:15:360:15:39

and it just so happens to be ripped right out of today's headlines.

0:15:390:15:42

Not just about politics and the President and the free press

0:15:420:15:45

but also gender issues and equality in the workplace, what have you.

0:15:450:15:50

But then what's so odd is that it's so...

0:15:500:15:53

As you say, it reflects what's going on, and yet ironically,

0:15:530:15:56

is it true the White House have asked

0:15:560:15:58

for a private screening of this?

0:15:580:16:00

Well, I think that's... They do that.

0:16:000:16:03

I think anybody who is president can call up and say,

0:16:030:16:05

"Send me the movie." Whether they watch it or not I don't know.

0:16:050:16:08

-Leave a note in there, in the DVD.

-Yeah!

0:16:080:16:11

-LAUGHTER

-What did I say?

-"Screw you!"

0:16:110:16:14

-Shoot a new scene!

-Shoot a whole new scene!

0:16:180:16:22

You and Meryl, just going...

0:16:220:16:24

I've got to make a phone call.

0:16:310:16:33

I've got to get this in the works. It's going to take a while.

0:16:340:16:38

Now, Maisie's latest film will appeal to children

0:16:380:16:41

and grown-ups everywhere. Early Man.

0:16:410:16:43

It's the latest work from Nick Park and Aardman Studios.

0:16:430:16:46

It opens on the 26th of January, and it's a really sweet, funny story.

0:16:460:16:51

So tell us about it and who you are.

0:16:510:16:53

So it's a pre-historic comedy

0:16:530:16:57

about a tribe who is run,

0:16:570:17:02

head up by a character called Dug,

0:17:020:17:04

who is played by Eddie Redmayne,

0:17:040:17:07

around the time that the Stone Age is being taken over

0:17:070:17:10

by the Bronze Age, and I play a character called Goona,

0:17:100:17:14

who basically helps the tribe win back their home.

0:17:140:17:19

Cos it's all based around football?

0:17:190:17:21

Yeah, so they have a football match between the Bronze Age

0:17:210:17:25

and the Stone Age and my character is from the Bronze Age

0:17:250:17:28

and she's not allowed to play on the sacred turf because she's a woman,

0:17:280:17:32

so she helps the tribe win this football match

0:17:320:17:36

on the condition that she gets to play, too.

0:17:360:17:38

Jeez, sounds like The Post.

0:17:380:17:40

Very similar concept. Very similar.

0:17:400:17:42

-It's as tense. It's as tense.

-No pay phones.

0:17:420:17:45

And what happened? You did loads of your voice at one stage, you...

0:17:450:17:52

So I started in 2016 and then finished the end of last year,

0:17:520:17:58

and I just had maybe seven or eight sessions

0:17:580:18:01

over a course of, like, months between,

0:18:010:18:05

and I'd completely forgotten after my first session

0:18:050:18:09

that I, er...

0:18:090:18:11

I was part of the film

0:18:110:18:13

and I got braces put on so I could sort out my wonky teeth,

0:18:130:18:17

and I went back and I was...recording my dialogue

0:18:170:18:22

and I had this little speech impediment that I hadn't noticed,

0:18:220:18:26

and when I went back the time after, they were like,

0:18:260:18:28

"We're going to have re-record absolutely everything

0:18:280:18:31

"that you've just done because you sound strange."

0:18:310:18:34

Cos you've talked to us before, Tom, about that repetition.

0:18:340:18:37

It's the hardest... Honestly, it's gruelling work,

0:18:370:18:40

cos you can't move off the microphone,

0:18:400:18:42

you have to stay right there... Let's play a game.

0:18:420:18:45

What was one of the most nondescript lines your character had?

0:18:450:18:48

-Nondescript? Um...

-Well, just like, you know.

-Um...

0:18:480:18:52

"Come on, boys, let me play," or something.

0:18:520:18:54

Yeah, great, we'll go with that.

0:18:540:18:56

Now I want you, for all of the audience,

0:18:560:18:58

to wring as many different meanings out of,

0:18:580:19:00

"Come on, boys, let me play," as possible

0:19:000:19:03

-and I will tell you when we're finished.

-OK.

0:19:030:19:07

-Is that what they'll do?

-That's what recording it is.

0:19:070:19:09

A lot of the time, they're not sure

0:19:090:19:11

whether it's going to be right or not until they get to the animating

0:19:110:19:14

and figuring out how they're going to animate a body around this voice,

0:19:140:19:18

so there's not a lot of pay-off until you watch the film complete.

0:19:180:19:23

-You find out they used the third version that you did.

-Exactly.

0:19:230:19:26

-Not 417.

-Yeah.

-You go in...

0:19:260:19:29

-DESPERATELY:

-"Come on, boys, let me play!"

0:19:290:19:31

-DISTRAUGHT:

-"Come on, boys, let me play!"

0:19:310:19:33

-CRYING:

-"Come on, boys! Let me play!"

0:19:330:19:35

-BAWLING:

-"Come on, boys! Let me play!"

0:19:350:19:38

And they're like, "Hm."

0:19:380:19:40

They press... Are they in the booth where they press the talkback?

0:19:410:19:44

Nick likes to be in the booth.

0:19:440:19:45

"Can you...can you do it

0:19:450:19:48

"as though you're having a nervous breakdown?"

0:19:480:19:51

"I am having a nervous breakdown!"

0:19:510:19:53

"I guess I just did."

0:19:530:19:54

"Yeah, that was great.

0:19:540:19:56

"We're going to send a fellow in with some needle-nose pliers

0:19:560:19:59

"to remove your braces, cos we're just...just not getting it."

0:19:590:20:04

-It's very, very hard work.

-It's tedious but it was great fun.

0:20:040:20:07

I'd love to do more.

0:20:070:20:09

She's selling the movie.

0:20:090:20:11

They save, for the end, your grunts and things,

0:20:110:20:14

like, in your action sequences.

0:20:140:20:15

But that's my favourite, I enjoy doing that.

0:20:150:20:17

They do that at the very end of the day.

0:20:170:20:20

-Is that like in music, like, ad-libs?

-Yeah, yeah!

0:20:200:20:22

Well, no, it's a long list and it says, "Grunt effect,"

0:20:220:20:26

and you sit there going, "Oof! Urgh! Argh!"

0:20:260:20:29

HE GRUNTS

0:20:290:20:32

And you just do as many as you can.

0:20:320:20:34

It was a football match as well, so there's a lot of, "Urgh!"

0:20:340:20:37

-Yeah, exactly.

-Very good!

0:20:370:20:39

-I believed it.

-I believed it.

-I'll tell you what,

0:20:390:20:42

we can have a listen and a watch now.

0:20:420:20:44

This is your character, Goona,

0:20:440:20:46

helping Dug, played by Eddie Redmayne,

0:20:460:20:48

-to steal some footballs.

-Yes.

0:20:480:20:50

-Who is that?

-THEY GASP

0:20:500:20:52

Scarper!

0:20:520:20:53

Stop! Thieves!

0:20:530:20:55

-This way!

-WHISTLE

0:20:550:20:58

Ooh-ooh-ooh! Oh!

0:20:580:21:01

They went that way!

0:21:010:21:02

-KNIGHTS: Huh?

-No! That way!

-Oh!

0:21:020:21:06

BUGLE BLARES

0:21:060:21:08

Give me those, quick.

0:21:110:21:13

Ow!

0:21:200:21:22

-You're really good!

-Thanks.

0:21:220:21:24

I do a lot of practice.

0:21:250:21:27

Wah!

0:21:270:21:28

Oh, marvellous work!

0:21:300:21:31

And what makes it all so special

0:21:360:21:38

is that, you know, they're real, it's 3D.

0:21:380:21:40

Now, I don't know if you know this,

0:21:400:21:42

Aardman have very kindly lent us Goona.

0:21:420:21:45

-SHE GASPS

-There she is.

-This is real Goona.

0:21:450:21:47

-That's actually what they pose?

-Yeah, this is Goona.

0:21:470:21:51

There she is. Look at her. I like the jaunty hand on the hip.

0:21:510:21:56

"I'm good at football but I'm a woman."

0:21:560:21:59

LAUGHTER

0:21:590:22:00

HE GIGGLES

0:22:000:22:02

Isn't that...?

0:22:020:22:04

-Oh, and it is made of...

-Plasticine. Indeed.

0:22:040:22:07

I think we actually have something for you also.

0:22:070:22:11

A GIFT FOR ME?!

0:22:110:22:12

-From the Aardman people.

-Really?

0:22:120:22:15

-Just wait there. Just two seconds.

-OK.

0:22:150:22:17

-Did you bring Graham anything?

-We brought this together.

0:22:180:22:22

-LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

-This is...

0:22:220:22:25

Oh, my God!

0:22:250:22:28

How cool is that?! Thank you so much. Wow!

0:22:280:22:33

That's amazing!

0:22:350:22:36

-Oh, my God!

-That is so good.

0:22:380:22:41

So now you can be part of the gang.

0:22:430:22:44

I look younger here though. Don't I look younger?

0:22:440:22:47

I look about 47.

0:22:470:22:49

It's mostly the size of the feet...

0:22:490:22:50

That's genius! Do I get to keep this?

0:22:520:22:55

-Absolutely.

-OK, show's over. Bye!

0:22:550:22:57

That's fantastic. Thank you so, so much.

0:22:580:23:00

APPLAUSE That's brilliant!

0:23:000:23:02

Now, this is a huge year for Anthony Joshua

0:23:030:23:08

because by the end of 2018, the plan is

0:23:080:23:12

you will be the first man to unify all four belts

0:23:120:23:16

and become the undisputed champion of the world.

0:23:160:23:18

-Potentially.

-That's the plan.

-That's the plan.

-OK.

0:23:180:23:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:23:210:23:23

But you've got two belts already.

0:23:230:23:27

-You've got three?

-Three.

0:23:270:23:29

-Hang on.

-There's five.

-Oh, there's five.

0:23:290:23:31

OK, so you've got three, so you need these extra two

0:23:310:23:33

-and they're going to happen this year.

-We're working on it.

0:23:330:23:36

Hopefully, you are going to announce a fight soon, I think.

0:23:360:23:40

-So who's the first one with?

-It was either out of the two belt holders.

0:23:400:23:43

-So let's say there's A, B, C, D, E.

-OK.

-So on and so forth.

0:23:430:23:48

So I've got three of them, there's two more left.

0:23:480:23:51

One's in America, one's in New Zealand,

0:23:510:23:53

so I was looking at both options.

0:23:530:23:54

America would have been phenomenal

0:23:540:23:56

cos, you know, when I'm walking down the street,

0:23:560:23:58

the lads are like, "Listen, mate, I need a reason to get to Vegas,

0:23:580:24:01

"when are you going out there to fight?"

0:24:010:24:03

So America would have been amazing, but we've had some difficulties,

0:24:030:24:06

so we're looking to bring the other guy, Joseph Parker,

0:24:060:24:09

who's a tidy champion. There he is there.

0:24:090:24:12

He has one of the other belts.

0:24:120:24:14

-Can I just say...

-Yeah, of course.

0:24:140:24:16

..that looks like it's going to be quite an easy fight.

0:24:160:24:19

I definitely hope so.

0:24:190:24:21

But you know what it is?

0:24:210:24:23

He looks like king of pies!

0:24:230:24:25

What's his nickname? Shall we give him a nickname?

0:24:250:24:29

Pie. The Pie.

0:24:290:24:31

-No, I can't underestimate anyone.

-No, seriously,

0:24:310:24:34

he must be a world-class athlete but he doesn't look like one, does he?

0:24:340:24:37

You can't underestimate. You know the thing is with boxing, I think,

0:24:370:24:40

you know, the things that you lack you can make up for

0:24:400:24:43

in power in the heavyweight division, and there's not...

0:24:430:24:46

Like, there's not one heavyweight

0:24:460:24:48

that hasn't gone without getting dropped in their whole career

0:24:480:24:51

and that's what I realise, is that a lot of fighters

0:24:510:24:54

have lost their titles through underestimating other athletes.

0:24:540:24:57

Like, for instance, Lennox Lewis. He was filming,

0:24:570:25:00

I think, Ocean's Eleven and he lost his title cos he wasn't focused,

0:25:000:25:04

and no heavyweight champion is one heavyweight champion of the world.

0:25:040:25:08

They're all two-time heavyweight champion, three-time,

0:25:080:25:11

because of the last thing they lose is the power in their punch.

0:25:110:25:13

So I can't... Even though he looks like the pie eater...

0:25:130:25:16

..he's probably packing a wallop as well, so I'm going to be focused,

0:25:180:25:21

-I'm in training camp now.

-You know his secret weapon?

0:25:210:25:24

Armpit hair. Look at that.

0:25:240:25:27

Look at that! Looks like

0:25:270:25:28

he's got cats under his arms!

0:25:280:25:30

I'm going to put that in the contract. Shave those armpits, man.

0:25:300:25:34

Or you can buy my Lynx can at Asda, Tesco...

0:25:340:25:37

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:25:370:25:40

I'm joking!

0:25:410:25:42

OK. So, they peel him off the floor, they roll him up like a carpet

0:25:440:25:50

and send him back to New Zealand. Who's the American guy then?

0:25:500:25:53

-Who's the next one you have to beat?

-He is Deontay Wilder.

0:25:530:25:55

He's got a big mouth. Here he is. As you can see, look at that.

0:25:550:25:59

Can I just say?

0:25:590:26:00

This is going to be harder.

0:26:000:26:02

LAUGHTER

0:26:020:26:03

Yeah, I think you're doing them in the right order.

0:26:070:26:09

But it's interesting.

0:26:120:26:13

So this is the plan next and this is when the guys where I grew up

0:26:130:26:16

can get to Vegas and have a good time

0:26:160:26:17

and watch a bit of boxing as well,

0:26:170:26:19

and this will be the fight that makes history.

0:26:190:26:22

But it's interesting because let's say I've done the hard work,

0:26:220:26:25

so I've managed to keep the four belts,

0:26:250:26:27

and I've got to put everything on the line to bring them back home,

0:26:270:26:30

-so it's a real tough one.

-Yeah, because, what's the story?

0:26:300:26:33

So you go into the match with four belts.

0:26:330:26:35

Does he then have five if he beats you?

0:26:350:26:38

-Then he, he creates history.

-Oh, my God!

-This is the situation we're in.

0:26:380:26:41

AUDIENCE GASPS

0:26:410:26:42

Oh. Good noise, everyone. Very good. That was good.

0:26:420:26:45

-But that is... That's...

-It will be in cinemas soon.

0:26:450:26:48

-That is a huge...

-Tom.

-Yeah. Yeah.

0:26:480:26:51

Stay away from making movies prior to the fight!

0:26:510:26:54

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:26:540:26:55

-But that's it, that's it.

-That is...

0:26:570:26:59

I imagine you'll be quite nervous that evening, yeah.

0:26:590:27:02

That's a lot. A lot! But you're also...

0:27:020:27:04

You're doing the fighting, you're preparing for all of that,

0:27:040:27:07

but you're also doing some promoting now as well, which is unusual, isn't

0:27:070:27:11

-it, for people when they're still boxing to do promotion?

-It's true.

0:27:110:27:14

I've always have the mind-set... I don't know.

0:27:140:27:16

I've always understood that athletes kind of come to the end

0:27:160:27:18

of their careers and they say, "OK, I'm starting a management company,

0:27:180:27:21

"I want to guide younger athletes,"

0:27:210:27:23

because I think it's the natural transition from athlete

0:27:230:27:26

to what I'm going to do in retirement, but I always thought

0:27:260:27:28

it's always good to be two steps ahead of the game

0:27:280:27:31

and kind of use the momentum when I'm competing

0:27:310:27:34

to kind of guide and help athletes. So, like,

0:27:340:27:37

I grew up in Watford, moved to London,

0:27:370:27:40

so I'm a proud sponsor of my gym where I grew up,

0:27:400:27:42

so all the kids there, I support them,

0:27:420:27:44

and now I've got two of my good friends

0:27:440:27:46

who are with the management company,

0:27:460:27:49

and Lawrence Okolie, Joshua Buatsi, who are fighting Feb 3rd,

0:27:490:27:53

and it's kind of guiding them, giving them the best advice.

0:27:530:27:56

And not only advice, they can bounce ideas off me as well.

0:27:560:27:59

It's just like an organic relationship

0:27:590:28:01

and I know that sometimes people want to see

0:28:010:28:03

if the grass is greener and, as I said, come to me for advice,

0:28:030:28:06

it's no problem, I know how the game goes

0:28:060:28:08

and if you ever want advice on where to go next,

0:28:080:28:10

-we can always guide you onto that as well.

-Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:28:100:28:12

Boxing now is, like, rock and roll, I mean, everybody flocks to it,

0:28:120:28:16

but you've also mixed with royalty, Prince Harry himself.

0:28:160:28:19

He asked you to take part in his Radio 4 programme?

0:28:190:28:23

There's a picture.

0:28:230:28:24

He asked me to take part in his Radio 4 programme.

0:28:240:28:27

-It was an honour, you know?

-Yeah.

0:28:270:28:29

Was that before or after you hit him?

0:28:290:28:31

Looks like he's recovering from a blow there.

0:28:330:28:35

That's me smiling at the six security guards watching me as well!

0:28:350:28:39

HE GROWLS

0:28:390:28:41

-No, but a real humble guy, really cool guy.

-You going to the wedding?

0:28:410:28:46

I would love to, you know, and big respect to Harry, you know.

0:28:460:28:49

-He took one of the sisters.

-LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:28:490:28:52

He took one of the sisters! So big respect to him.

0:28:520:28:56

And I would love to, you know. I'd love to.

0:28:560:28:59

Be handing out some Jamaican rum.

0:28:590:29:02

-Behind the bar.

-You go to the afters, the afters, the disco, yeah.

0:29:050:29:09

See if she's got any sisters, aunties, cousins.

0:29:090:29:14

I'm single!

0:29:140:29:16

Cos fighting...

0:29:190:29:21

You've been in so many movies, you must have done umpteen fights.

0:29:210:29:24

Oh, dear. I-I... No. Not one.

0:29:240:29:28

-You've done some.

-He ran. He ran.

0:29:280:29:31

-I ran.

-LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:29:310:29:34

Yeah, but I run fast.

0:29:360:29:38

-Very fast.

-I run fast.

0:29:380:29:40

No, when it comes down to fight scenes, I get cast as the pie eater.

0:29:400:29:44

I did have one. I got beat up by Paul Bettany in The Da Vinci Code

0:29:440:29:49

and it was a moment where... We had rehearsed it a little bit

0:29:490:29:53

and in movie fights, everybody treats it like it's a real fight.

0:29:530:29:57

-Serious?

-Everybody, "OK, are you ready?" "I'm ready."

0:29:570:30:00

And you know, you miss each other like that. It's like that.

0:30:000:30:03

But Paul came rushing in and I met him

0:30:030:30:06

and what had to happen, he was supposed to knock me down

0:30:060:30:09

against a desk and then I landed on the ground.

0:30:090:30:12

-And the way it sounded was...

-HE GRUNTS

0:30:120:30:17

-HE BLOWS A RASPBERRY WHISPERS:

-Because I farted.

0:30:170:30:20

When I hit the floor...I farted,

0:30:250:30:29

so that's why somebody else gets to play. I...

0:30:290:30:33

I don't think that's happened to me.

0:30:340:30:36

Does that ever happen in the middle of the ring?

0:30:360:30:38

But remember, you do things that don't actually happen...

0:30:380:30:41

Yeah, Joseph Parker does. HE GROANS

0:30:430:30:47

-Maisie, you had started in the show so young, at 12.

-Yeah.

0:30:470:30:50

So did you have to do...?

0:30:500:30:52

-They obviously had to train you to do all your fight scenes.

-Yeah.

0:30:520:30:56

My character was also learning, so as my character learned, I learned.

0:30:560:31:00

She wasn't, like, amazing from the first episode,

0:31:000:31:03

like, she wasn't supposed to know what she was doing,

0:31:030:31:05

so it was nice that as the seasons went on, I learnt more and more.

0:31:050:31:09

Yeah, cos now you're proper kick-ass.

0:31:090:31:10

When we're fake punching at each other, yeah, but not in real life.

0:31:100:31:16

Although I'd never underestimate, like, your opponent, you know.

0:31:160:31:19

LAUGHTER

0:31:190:31:22

-Do you learn the head whip as well?

-Yeah.

0:31:220:31:25

Throw a punch right there and I'll show you. Boom!

0:31:250:31:28

Ooh, it's good. HE BLOWS A RASPBERRY

0:31:280:31:29

Oh! LAUGHTER

0:31:290:31:32

You sell it after the fact.

0:31:360:31:39

And you get fans wanting a really specific thing from you.

0:31:390:31:43

Yeah, it's a little odd. So my character on the show,

0:31:430:31:46

-she has a list of people that she wants to kill.

-You're crazy?

0:31:460:31:51

Well, no, they're all justified for sure.

0:31:510:31:55

And she has a list and she recites the names

0:31:570:31:59

and she's been through a lot of trauma, a bit of a back story,

0:31:590:32:03

and it's what keeps her going and it's what keeps her fighting,

0:32:030:32:05

even though she's lost both of her parents.

0:32:050:32:07

So a lot of people come up to me in the street

0:32:070:32:09

-and they want me to recite the names but then add their name.

-Oh!

0:32:090:32:15

-I would actually like that as well.

-LAUGHTER

0:32:150:32:18

-Do you know the names?

-I do, yeah.

0:32:180:32:21

-There's a lot of them. Yeah.

-Yeah. You speak quite quickly.

0:32:210:32:25

Which camera? Which camera should she...? Yeah, there we go.

0:32:250:32:27

Have we got some tension music or anything?

0:32:270:32:29

DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS Here we go, here we go. OK.

0:32:290:32:31

Off you go. Off you go.

-Yay!

0:32:510:32:53

You was waiting for that. You was waiting!

0:32:540:32:57

Please kill me!

0:32:570:32:58

Very quickly, Anthony, this match isn't set yet,

0:33:020:33:05

-but are you in training now?

-Yeah.

-So are you still doing this thing?

0:33:050:33:09

You posted this video

0:33:090:33:10

and it's a training technique I've never seen before.

0:33:100:33:14

Is this a genuine training technique?

0:33:140:33:16

LAUGHTER

0:33:160:33:19

Do you know what it is, right?

0:33:200:33:22

This is...

0:33:220:33:24

-A cat toy?

-This is a cat toy, yeah!

0:33:240:33:27

All products sold in Asda, Tesco... I'm joking! I'm joking!

0:33:270:33:30

It's just made from a normal cap, elastic string and a tennis ball.

0:33:300:33:34

-Boxing's like that, I swear to you, it's so grassroots.

-Market this.

0:33:340:33:37

This is... It's the exciting game that everybody loves to play!

0:33:370:33:41

It's punch ball. Yes, punch ball. Hours of fun...

0:33:410:33:44

Quite easy to make. Quite easy to make.

0:33:440:33:49

But do you know what it is? That is the reality we live in,

0:33:490:33:52

because that was about the 1,000th video that I had done

0:33:520:33:55

that looked good. I'm not good at this. I'm not good at it!

0:33:550:34:00

Can we go back to it? Just see how marvellous you are.

0:34:000:34:03

You are really good in the video.

0:34:030:34:04

-Can we see the video again? Here we go.

-You nail this bad boy.

0:34:040:34:07

Look at that.

0:34:070:34:09

The ball takes some beating!

0:34:100:34:13

There's a lot of editing in this!

0:34:130:34:15

Does this mean you will be able to defeat any tennis ball?

0:34:170:34:21

It is much harder than it looks cos I tried it this afternoon. Try it.

0:34:240:34:27

I'm good at that, thank you very much. This is the host...

0:34:270:34:31

LAUGHTER

0:34:310:34:33

That's why they pay me.

0:34:330:34:35

Cos I can do this shit.

0:34:350:34:38

I tried this this afternoon, cos that does not look hard, does it?

0:34:380:34:42

-That does not look hard.

-No.

-Let's see.

0:34:420:34:44

Do you throw it up and hit it, or what you do?

0:34:440:34:47

However you feel comfortable, there's no right or wrong technique,

0:34:470:34:49

but just keep it away from your face.

0:34:490:34:51

-Keep it going.

-Oh! That's quite good!

0:34:510:34:55

That's quite good! Oh, oh, oh! Oh!

0:34:550:34:58

APPLAUSE

0:34:580:34:59

Missed me by that much.

0:35:080:35:10

If you got it on the right camera, I took it right in the face.

0:35:100:35:13

-Right, quickly, it's music time.

-Does that not look like fun?

0:35:130:35:16

-It is fun, yeah!

-We have one for everybody in the audience.

0:35:160:35:20

Ooh, you're chasing Oprah, aren't you?

0:35:210:35:23

You get a punch ball, you get a punch ball, you get a punch ball.

0:35:230:35:27

APPLAUSE OK, it is music time.

0:35:270:35:30

This Swedish folk band are one of my favourite artists at the moment.

0:35:300:35:33

They were nominated for Best International Group at the Brits

0:35:330:35:36

and last year, they stormed the stage at Glastonbury.

0:35:360:35:39

-Yes.

-Cheers.

0:39:560:40:00

It's A Shame is off the new album, Ruins,

0:40:000:40:03

and that's out next Friday, isn't it, the 19th?

0:40:030:40:05

-Mm-hm.

-Yes. So what's the story?

0:40:050:40:09

-Have you moved to LA, no?

-No.

-No.

-No.

0:40:090:40:12

-But you made this record in LA?

-No.

-No.

-Oh.

0:40:120:40:15

-Have you ever been to LA?

-Yes!

0:40:150:40:19

We're back on track, we're back on track.

0:40:190:40:21

-We wrote the record in LA.

-I knew there was some connection, didn't I?

0:40:210:40:25

I'm not just making it up.

0:40:250:40:27

But now, is it true you're not a fan of LA?

0:40:270:40:29

No...we love LA. We just, um...

0:40:290:40:32

LAUGHTER They hate it.

0:40:320:40:35

Well, the thing was, we had this trip planned, we were going to go,

0:40:350:40:40

right, and it was very exciting and then,

0:40:400:40:43

my relationship ended just before going there.

0:40:430:40:46

-Oh.

-So I was not in a great state when we came there.

0:40:460:40:51

-I feel bad now that I brought it up.

-Oh, no, it's OK.

0:40:510:40:55

You're all good again, yeah. You got a record out of it, who cares?

0:40:550:40:58

-That's WAY more important than a relationship.

-Yeah.

0:41:000:41:03

Are you greeted at the airport with that question?

0:41:030:41:05

You know, "Did you just broke up with somebody?

0:41:050:41:08

"Welcome to Los Angeles."

0:41:080:41:10

I would mention your tour, but there's no need,

0:41:130:41:15

0:41:320:41:35

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:41:350:41:36

OK. That's nearly it,

0:41:370:41:41

but we do have time for a visit to the big red chair.

0:41:410:41:44

Yes, who's there? Hello!

0:41:440:41:47

-Hello.

-Hi, what's your name?

-I'm Katie.

-Katie. Lovely.

0:41:470:41:50

-Where are you from, Katie?

-I'm from Guildford.

-Guildford.

0:41:500:41:52

She's from Guildford, it's a lovely part of the world. Commuter belt.

0:41:520:41:55

-It's no LA.

-No, it's not, no. She's happy.

0:41:550:41:59

Um, so what do you do in Guildford?

0:41:590:42:01

-Well, I actually work in London.

-Oh, right. You commute.

0:42:010:42:03

See, I told you it was a commuter belt. What do you do in London?

0:42:030:42:07

I work in foetal medicine at St George's Hospital.

0:42:070:42:09

Wow. Proper, serious job. Wow! Off you go with your story.

0:42:090:42:13

OK, it was back in 2000, 2001,

0:42:130:42:15

I was lucky enough to be on a sailing holiday in the Greek islands

0:42:150:42:19

and we dropped in on a harbour called Fiscardo on Kefalonia

0:42:190:42:23

and it's around about the time

0:42:230:42:24

when Captain Corelli's Mandolin was being filmed

0:42:240:42:26

and rumour was that Tom Hanks was playing the lead.

0:42:260:42:30

As I know now, it's not true, but we had decided to eat at a taverna

0:42:300:42:36

and because we'd had quite a few drinks on board,

0:42:360:42:39

the crew, well, not the crew, but friends and family that I was with,

0:42:390:42:42

they ended up going off down to the taverna where we'd booked

0:42:420:42:45

and I cleared up the boat and I came on afterwards.

0:42:450:42:48

I was walking towards the other tavernas on the quayside

0:42:480:42:50

and somebody caught my eye, like, really caught my eye,

0:42:500:42:53

and I thought, "Oh, I know that person..."

0:42:530:42:56

LAUGHTER

0:42:560:42:59

It wasn't you, was it?

0:42:590:43:01

Well, I actually have been to Fiscardo in Kefalonia and I was

0:43:010:43:03

there around the time they were making Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

0:43:030:43:06

-No, you weren't! No, you weren't!

-It's very possible.

0:43:060:43:09

-I want to hear the rest of the story!

-No, you're making that up.

0:43:090:43:14

I want to know what happens next.

0:43:140:43:16

-Kefalonia is right across from Ithaca.

-You are making that up.

0:43:160:43:20

I have been to... I have been sitting in a taverna

0:43:200:43:23

in Kefalonia, in Fiscardo many, many times.

0:43:230:43:26

-Shall we see if it was you?

-Well...

0:43:260:43:29

Is she still alive?

0:43:290:43:31

I don't know! Can we mend her? Can be rebuild her?

0:43:310:43:34

OK, let's get her back. OK. So, cut to the chase.

0:43:340:43:39

-Was it Tom Hanks?

-Yes!

-Oh, my God!

0:43:390:43:42

That was a short story, she built it long.

0:43:470:43:50

-That's amazing!

-Yeah, yeah.

-Wow!

0:43:500:43:53

-Oh, but it's fabulous.

-That's incredible.

-Greece is fantastic.

0:43:530:43:56

Poor story but Greece, lovely. OK, shall we try one more? One more.

0:43:560:44:01

One more. This is the charm. This is the charm. Hello.

0:44:010:44:04

-Hello.

-Hi. What's your name?

-Lisa.

0:44:040:44:06

Lisa. Lovely, Lisa. And what do you do?

0:44:060:44:09

-I work in marketing, financial services.

-Ooh! OK, I am no wiser.

0:44:090:44:15

Off you go with your story.

0:44:150:44:17

OK, it's about 20 years ago, I'd been on the pill for a little while,

0:44:170:44:20

decided it was time for a change, wanted to try out the cap...

0:44:200:44:23

LAUGHTER

0:44:230:44:25

-I love this story!

-You are not... You are not...

0:44:250:44:30

I love this story!

0:44:300:44:32

OK, so you're off the pill, you're trying the cap, why not?

0:44:320:44:35

Ring the changes.

0:44:350:44:36

OK, so, family planning clinic, met this very lovely nurse

0:44:360:44:40

who demonstrated to me pictorially how to use the cap,

0:44:400:44:43

-how to insert it, make sure it was comfortable, etc.

-Yeah, of course.

0:44:430:44:46

And then handed it to me and said, "OK, now you need to try."

0:44:460:44:49

Told me to take off my bottom half

0:44:490:44:51

and I got into the squat position, which the pictures had suggested.

0:44:510:44:55

She then said she needed to pop out and she'd be back

0:44:550:44:57

in five minutes when I could ask any questions.

0:44:570:45:00

So I got down to the job,

0:45:000:45:01

I was struggling somewhat with this cap,

0:45:010:45:03

to get it in, to get it in the right position, at which point

0:45:030:45:06

I heard a very sharp, sudden cough and looked up to see the whole

0:45:060:45:10

waiting room staring in at me where she had not close the door properly.

0:45:100:45:15
