The final battle

So on Sunday evening I  tried to track down the fourth transmitter - take out that, and the whole system would be disabled. We knew it would be turning up somewhere in the VIP area, so I tried to get a dozen or so of you back there to help out.

But before I could, I spotted someone carrying a black box that looked a bit like the other transmitters we'd seen. This is what happened next:


All very hectic towards the end with everything moving so fast, but it couldn't have finished in a more appropriate place - in the 'Angels' massage tent, cutting the red wire with scissors provided by one of the Angels themselves.

Of course, the search for the missing instruments continues. Mark Ronson's keyboard can be found today. Visit http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/bigweekend/2007/instrumenthunt/  for the lowdown. Looks like Cyrus is long gone, though.

And there's a shout out in the video to everyone who helped, but I want to repeat it here - THANK YOU so much to everyone on the ground and online, in the UK and beyond, who helped rescue the Big Weekend. I hope you enjoyed it. In a slightly manic way, I did too.

I'm interested in such offer,The sound quality in these podcasts is really poor. I feel bad about complaining about something that is free, but I think it is important.

Makes me sad whenever this happens. Should be more consistent.

let's join our hands together to stop this kind of wrong doings. It may risk lives in the future if we just let them continue.

In April and May 2007, I claimed there was a cover-up at the BBC to do with the words 'Frozen Indigo Angel'. It was all part of an Alternate Reality Game run by Radio 1 and the guys behind Perplex City - in fact, I encountered a character or two from Perplex City myself.

During the game, we gave away tickets to the Big Weekend, musical instruments belonging to major bands, and introduced thousands of people to a whole new world. All for free.

If you'd like to re-live the adventure, check out my first video, and then watch the rest.
