APPLAUSE Good evening and welcome to Lottery
HQ for the National Lottery live. The draw machines are primed and
ready to go. Someone could be hand 500,000 richer thanks to
Thunderball. Lottery has a jackpot of ?4.7 million. Plus, there will be
50 winners of ?20,000 in the Lotto Raffle. Where those winners are - we
will tell you later. I'm honoured to be able to talk to some special
gentlemen involved in a lottery-funded project by the name
of D-Day Revisited. Good evening. Good evening. I'll be right back
with you in a moment or two. I have to do the rest of my job!
These ladies here belong to those guys over there. Hi Draw Master
Julie. Hi. You alright? Very well. Ladies everywhere! Please release
the balls. There is another bloke around. Alan?
I'm here. All 40 balls are in the Chamber.
Earlier today, we asked Stuart Toole from Windsor to select this
evening's draw equipment. Chris? Thank you very much. Ladies, are you
ready? Yes. Here we go. Don't let me down, girls. As if they would? Here
we go. First one is about to appear. That is 47. Next, 6. 32. The fourth
one is 1. The next one is 2. The one for the jackpot - that is 29. Good
news if it is yours! Of course, we need to collect a bonus. There it
is, number 13. The Lotto winning numbers in ascending order:
Thanks, Al. Remember, every line is entered into the Lotto Raffle.
Girls, I have to leave you. Ah! Numbers on your tickets and you can
check if you have won any prizes by going to bbc.co.uk/lottery. Or
checking the red button. We can see where the majority of those winning
tickets are right now thanks to the Raffle Map. Look at this. Look at
that. Scotland 7. The pairs? London and the South East. Those two sixes
are the North West and the Isle of Man. Yorkshire and Humber doing
well. All the fours? East Midlands and the East.
Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday. Tonight, we are honoured to be
joined by D-Day Revisited. Good evening. Good evening. Thanks so
much for being here. John Phipps is the founder. How did it come about?
It was back in 2008 when we were in view of the 65th anniversary of the
Normandy landings and we realised that there are quite a lot of
veterans who want to go over there and can't afford it. We put this
idea together and really what was driving us thinking that in 1944
they didn't have to buy their ticket. So why should they have to
do it now? It just seemed such a right thing to do. And then we were
going to do it as a one-off. Everybody liked it. And the French
liked it. So we kept on going. Five years on, you are looking forward to
the 70th anniversary? Yes. So all the plans are being formed now. We
will be going again. Thank you so much. We caught up with one of the
oldest veterans, 95-year-old Ron Rowson, to hear his story. We went
in on a steamship, which landed to the beach as near as possible. So we
could get our equipment off. It was very frightening. We knew a lot
could happen. I'd advise anybody who hasn't been back to go back. I
wanted to visit the military cemeteries. And pay my respects. It
was a bit frightening at times but I wouldn't have missed it for the
world. It was a wonderful opportunity. I think back to those
who never came back. Inconceivable for most of us. John, you were in
the Royal Navy at the time. You have been back with this organisation?
Yes. What's it meant to you to go back? Well, thanks to Lottery
funding, we are able to go back and next year we will be taking 110,
with a bit of luck, and, of course, we are so grateful to receive the
chance of going back to visit our - well, the graves of the people who
will never come back. We are lucky. We come back. The French people are
very good to us and we go and speak to the kids in the school and they
get a kick, we get a kick out of it. Without - as they have said, without
the money, we couldn't go. It is exceptional. Well, it is a brilliant
initiative. Well done for coming up with it. I know you don't want it to
be about you - and that is quite right. I can tell you that before we
came on air tonight, the Lottery have told us your funding for next
year has been secured. I am sure everybody is very happy with that.
We get a great payback out of this, too. Brilliant. Can I come? Of
course. I would love to come. If you would like to find out more about
D-Day Revisited, you can visit their website via bbc.co.uk/lottery. Time
for one last draw and it is Thunderball time.
Alright. Thunderballs are go! Alan? Julie, start up the Thunderball
machines if you would, please? We are off and running. Both of
tonight's draws are being overseen by an independent adjudicator.
Let's do it. Let's start the draw. Let's see how we get on. The first
one is about to appear. That is 18. A total of 39 balls to pick from in
this first machine. Here is the next one. 27. Three opportunities per
week to play the game itself. The next one is 22. A couple more from
this machine now. Here is the first. That is 14. Finally, how about this
number - 21? Let's draw the Thunderball itself now. Excellent.
There it is, number 1. So, here are tonight's Thunderball numbers in
ascending order: Early indications show one player
has won tonight's Lotto jackpot! Wow! I hope you are watching now.
That is it from us. A big thank you to the gents from D-Day Revisited.
Let's hear it for those guys. APPLAUSE Superb. We will be back
next Saturday. Until then, have a fantastic weekend. Casualty is next
on BBC One.
