While you weren't watching Jess found a way to stop Little Bird from eating 
Mimi's lettuce seeds.  Then Louie lost his scarf and looked for someone with a 
good sense of smell to help him find it.  Wibbly made his own magic bus.  
Dipdap tried to create a sculpture.  Zephie knocked a beehive out of a tree.  
Sonny the weather mouse predicted that snow would fall.  Roar filmed the birth 
of a baby giraffe.  Teams then took turns to copy pictures, actions and 
displays of musical genius.  Then came "Deadly Art," followed by "Paradise 
Cafe" in which the ghost of a Cat Burglar wanted Natasha's locket as a gift for 
his girlfriend.  "Wingin' It" was an episode of "All Lizards Go to Heaven."  
Then came "Who Let the Dogs Out?" and "Junior Bake Off," "Saturday Kitchen Best 
Bites," and "The Great British Bake Off."  In the Afternoon, "A Tale of Two 
Cities," was a drama set during the French Revolution.  Neil Oliver visited 
Whitstable, Alistair Appleton helped house hunters who were desperate to 
downsize to the Yorkshire Dales, Rishi Persad introduced coverage of the 
Burghley Horse Trials and a team dived beneath the polar ice cap to explore how 
the ice is shrinking.  The evening began with a trip to Botswana to swim with 
Nile crocodiles.  Richard Hammond traveled to Fort Bliss to drive a tank.  
Jeremy Clarkson and James May repeated their look at China's ever-expanding car 
industry, a nurse from Preston traveled to Mexico to the centre of a violent 
drug war, there was an entertaining drama about the birth of the Paralympics 
and finally, just before midnight Dylan Thomas came on, together with his wife 
and childhood sweetheart.  We then joined the BBC's rolling news channel.

The Mac and Cheese is going cold, Daddy,
the Mac and Cheese is going cold.
Dr. Livingstone, I presume?
Oh, no, no, 
my name's Nigel.
