Duration: 30 minutes

A bunch of practical how-tos that help you complete day-to-day tasks the ninja way, with the aid of guides Black Ninja (lifeskills), Blue Ninja (style), Pink Ninja (domestic), Red Ninja (arts and craft) and Brown Ninja (DIY).

They advise on everything from how to make a gourmet meal at a festival to how to make a bike rack out of old office shelving, giving juicy tips direct from the sacred ninja knowledge: Wu-how. These aren't patronising introductions, but nuggets of wisdom that will transform viewers from beginner to expert in seconds.
