As part of this week’s challenge the gadget show team were given 5 high tech safes from the safe supermarket to break into within one hour. Inside the safes were items the shows presenters wanted to keep secret.

England, UK, April 13, 2011 -- As part of this week's challenge the gadget show team were given 5 high tech safes and had only one hour to break into them. Inside the safes were items that the team would definitely not want the public to see! The race had begun and the team were off...

They jumped straight into their a-team van (part of an earlier challenge) and drove to a quarry where they were presented with the range of safes from the safe supermarket

There were individual safes waiting for them and each one contained an embarrassing clip of the presenter's earliest TV performances.

The footage of Otis was from his first ever TV appearance (1994) on blind date and was locked inside the Sentry QE Range Data Storage Safe. This safe has a USB port on the front which means that you can connect to a drive locked inside.

The safe Susie had to crack was the phoenix citadel – it locks using two solid steel 25 mm bolts and has an insurance rating of £40,000 pounds for jewellery. The safe contained a clip of Susie's first TV performance in a Kenco coffee advert.

Poly was given the secure line ps2-27E – Its constructed with a 8mm solid steel door and a 3mm solid steel body with hardened steel protecting the locks. The safe contained a clip of Pollyanna from her TV debut on pop stars the rivals in 2002.

Johns clip was from his appearance on TOP gear and was locked inside a Yale medium fire safe. This was the cheapest of the safes on test, is made of hardened steel and has a lock that has over a billion combinations. Footage of Jason's first TV appearance on television in a Telewest broad cast from 1994 was locked inside a Burton magnum 36k/e.

The team had to work together to break into the safes so that they could recover the embarrassing footage and make sure that it would never see the light of day again. In true gadget show style the team got cracking straight away with a huge great digger. (No listening to combinations with a stethoscope here!) With Susie driving the digger the team loaded the safes onto the diggers cradle. The safes were dropped from a great height to see if the impact would open them. One by one they came crashing to the floor. Although they had a few cuts and bruises the impact certainly did not break any of them open.

The team needed to step it up a notch if they were ever to get hold of that footage. For the second test they each set about the safes with a powerful angle grinder. They thought that Jason had defeated the Sentry safe but he only managed to cut off the digital panel at the front. These safes are made of thick, reinforced and in some cases galvanised steel and though john did a good job of cutting around the lock of the phoenix he was unsuccessful and broke the angle grinder!

It wasn't looking good for the team and time was running out so they quickly moved on to their last shot at cracking the safes. It was time to roll out the explosives to see if they could blow the doors open. Their explosives specialist expert was on hand with some P.E.T.N or Pentaerythritol tetranitrate – a highly explosive compound and one of the most powerful explosives around today. P.E.N.T is used for demolition and even by the military. It's super destructive and the team were sure it would be enough to get into their armoured safes. The team carefully attached the explosives to each of their safe and kept everything crossed that they had finally managed to find a way to get them open – save their TV clips and win the challenge. As poly was set to trigger the explosions, the rest of the team stood back ready to watch the show. The explosions were huge and destroyed the concrete blocks that the safes were sitting on.

Even though every single safe had taken a serious beating - every single door was still shut. The team had failed their challenge.

The final score was: safes – 5, Gadget show presenters – 0
