:00:31.:00:41.
:00:41.:00:53.

:00:58.:01:03.

:01:03.:01:09.

only need cucumber sandwiches. are the Military Wives, they have

:01:09.:01:13.

And you look gorgeous! We have also got Sir Elton John, Kylie Minogue

:01:19.:01:24.

and Stevie Wonder. It is all happening aboard are fabulous bus

:01:24.:01:31.

and let me tell you, we have the best driver. We're all going on a

:01:31.:01:39.

summer holiday, no more work used - there were these for a week or two.

:01:40.:01:49.
:01:50.:01:51.

No more worries for me or you. Cliff is not the only guest on

:01:51.:01:59.

board. By royal appointment, it is this evening's ring master, Gary

:01:59.:02:09.
:02:09.:02:15.

Barlow and Sir Paul McCartney. to see you! We know it is a busy

:02:15.:02:20.

night for the view. We must say it is a bit sad that the Duke of

:02:20.:02:23.

Edinburgh has been taken to hospital but the Palace have

:02:23.:02:29.

decided to go ahead with the evening. Have you heard that news?

:02:29.:02:34.

It is such a shame, really sad. might have been a bit much for him

:02:34.:02:41.

yesterday. I was called are just watching it on television, it was a

:02:41.:02:46.

rotten day. Her Majesty stood for the whole day, she must have been

:02:46.:02:53.

freezing. We do wish him all the best. A few months ago, we were in

:02:53.:02:57.

the Palace talking about this thing and it is finally here. I cannot

:02:57.:03:01.

believe it and it is massive. It was two years ago that we started

:03:01.:03:07.

to plan this concert and the crazy idea came up within an hour of the

:03:07.:03:11.

saying let's have the stage of a bear and when I got here and there

:03:11.:03:17.

has denied and so the stage set up, I couldn't believe it. It also

:03:17.:03:23.

shows, because I saw Sir Paul McCartney was no band, even they

:03:23.:03:29.

are really excited. Backstage here, are just seeing each other and

:03:29.:03:33.

there is a lovely feeling. exciting. It is not in the back

:03:33.:03:39.

garden because the last time, I was in the line-up with Her Majesty and

:03:39.:03:43.

I said, will we be doing this next year? She said, not in my back

:03:43.:03:49.

garden! How did you get involved? Gary Barlow came and saw me for

:03:49.:03:53.

this one and I had done something for him before. They knew each

:03:53.:03:58.

other. The meetings agger of this are always fun because he does this

:03:58.:04:06.

thing where he goes, what you want me to sing? Beacons of but the

:04:06.:04:13.

songs, what you say? He just asked me and we talked about what songs.

:04:13.:04:19.

I refused to do everything he suggested! It was great. I like

:04:19.:04:24.

that. Are you have happy to stick around for a bit on the bass. It

:04:24.:04:31.

would be great if you could hang around. Absolutely. We have some

:04:31.:04:36.

pictures here. The streets are filling up. These are people who

:04:36.:04:40.

are not even invited, there are just turning up to look at the big

:04:40.:04:47.

screens. These are scenes happening right across the country and we

:04:47.:04:54.

think Lucy is just outside Buckingham Palace. I am at the top

:04:54.:04:57.

of constitution Hill, it is so exciting here. The atmosphere is

:04:57.:05:02.

really building. The 10,000 people who are lucky enough to have seats

:05:02.:05:06.

for the concert tonight are filing in and taking their seats. The

:05:06.:05:10.

atmosphere is incredible, some of them are so keen that they can

:05:10.:05:13.

doubt last night in that weather. Some have been here from early this

:05:13.:05:18.

morning. I also got here very early this morning and walked up

:05:18.:05:21.

Constitution Hill and I heard Stevie Wonder and Sir Paul

:05:21.:05:27.

McCartney or doing at sound check - amazing. Tonight's concert is going

:05:27.:05:36.

to the epic. That is quite a scene, isn't it? Either going to the

:05:36.:05:41.

images projected on the stage? get darkness at 9:15pm and at that

:05:41.:05:44.

point, the project on to the palace and there is even someone

:05:44.:05:49.

performing on top of the Palace later. We're going to ask you about

:05:49.:05:55.

that later. Have you seen much of the Queen on the last few days?

:05:55.:06:01.

TV, yes. I ran into her at the Royal Academy and it's always his

:06:01.:06:05.

amazing seeing her because in person, she is just so incredible.

:06:05.:06:11.

I said that when she took the throne, I was 10 years old so why

:06:11.:06:15.

was a kid and very impressionable. I just love to her. This idea that

:06:15.:06:22.

we were going to have a woman as our monarch, very impressive for me

:06:22.:06:26.

and then when you see the films that Charles has been showing and

:06:26.:06:33.

you see it being so humanised with the kids. I loved seeing Charles

:06:33.:06:38.

giggling, I think it is great because people sometimes think the

:06:38.:06:43.

monarchy is a bit distant and you realise, as I did as a 10 year-old,

:06:43.:06:48.

they are just good people. As a 10 year-old, did you think you would

:06:48.:06:53.

be performing at the Diamond Jubilee concert? I never thought I

:06:53.:06:57.

would later, certainly, and never thought there would be performing

:06:57.:07:02.

for her. She is great. It is not just at Buckingham Palace where

:07:02.:07:05.

excitement is building. People are gathering in the centre of Swansea

:07:05.:07:12.

as well. There are 20 towns and cities with these big screens

:07:12.:07:15.

transmitting the Queen's Jubilee concert and also at The One Show

:07:15.:07:20.

tonight. I have come to Swansea where we are attempting something

:07:20.:07:25.

slightly different, seeing if we can break the record for the

:07:25.:07:29.

biggest royal Mexican wave so we're practising here. If you live near

:07:29.:07:38.

here, this is the place to be, get yourself down here!

:07:38.:07:42.

Screens all over the UK. This has to be one of the biggest audiences

:07:42.:07:48.

that you have ever played? The have started to worry as a now! Windows

:07:48.:07:54.

that moment, when you think, I am here to do a job? For me, it was

:07:54.:07:58.

the sound check this morning, when I saw the stage and I hadn't seen

:07:58.:08:02.

the set-up, it was very impressive and you're standing there, looking

:08:02.:08:07.

down at the mall, which is only half full. Then you start thinking,

:08:07.:08:13.

it is going to be Phil. We were speaking to Sir Cliff Richard and

:08:13.:08:17.

he even said, I will start feeling nervous even though it is great

:08:18.:08:21.

seeing friends and catching up with people, the moment before you go on

:08:21.:08:27.

stage, you cannot help get butterflies. 50 minutes and 50

:08:27.:08:35.

seconds to go! You are really worryingly! We want to know how you

:08:35.:08:39.

are preparing for the concert so take a picture of yourself whether

:08:39.:08:49.

you are and send them to us. will get those shown later on. The

:08:49.:08:59.
:08:59.:09:01.

Queen has been touching lives of people since the start of her reign.

:09:01.:09:08.

Those 60 years ago at the time, the Queen's succession to the throne

:09:08.:09:13.

created unforgettable memories. It was an early 1952 when the young 24

:09:13.:09:18.

year-old Princess received word of the death of her father, King

:09:18.:09:25.

George VI. What do you memories of her visit to Kenya? I was about

:09:25.:09:31.

four years old. I said to my brother, I cannot see her, I cannot

:09:31.:09:36.

see her, so he picked me up and put meat on his shoulders. For a little

:09:36.:09:40.

girl to see a real princess was something very special and I will

:09:40.:09:46.

cherish that memory. She came to Kenya, a princess, and she is going

:09:47.:09:52.

back as a queen. Charles and William have been prepared for it

:09:52.:09:56.

but she wasn't because she suddenly found herself with that enormous

:09:56.:10:03.

responsibility. On the 2nd June 1953, the Golden Stagecoach made

:10:03.:10:09.

its way to Westminster Abbey for the Queen to be crowned. I was in

:10:09.:10:15.

the Royal Marines. On the Coronation Day, I was about here on

:10:15.:10:19.

the Embankment. We had hundreds and hundreds of children behind us and

:10:19.:10:27.

one of these little boys filled up a bottle of lemonade and put a

:10:28.:10:33.

straw in it. I could not hear a single word of audience. I cannot

:10:33.:10:41.

imagine another day when the atmosphere was greater. Over 3

:10:41.:10:45.

million spectators gathered on the streets of London. The coronation

:10:45.:10:50.

was an unmissable experience that united the country. I was wearing a

:10:50.:11:00.
:11:00.:11:00.

paper skirt and the colour in it ran down my legs. I was five years

:11:00.:11:04.

old, sitting there on the pavement with red, white and blue legs,

:11:04.:11:10.

waving to the Queen! Around 27 million Britons, three quarters of

:11:10.:11:13.

the population at the time, gathered in the homes of friends

:11:13.:11:21.

and neighbours to watch the live coverage. The only person in the

:11:21.:11:24.

street with a television invited the whole street to come to his

:11:24.:11:29.

house to watch. I had the mumps and for people came to my house and

:11:29.:11:32.

lifted the bed and everything down and put me in front of the

:11:32.:11:40.

television so I had the best picture! This is me in the corner,

:11:40.:11:45.

I was 21 and this is Jack he was eight. We all felt we had been

:11:45.:11:51.

transported into the Abbey, we felt really privileged. We all stood up

:11:51.:11:58.

and we sang God Save the Queen and it was absolutely wonderful. She

:11:58.:12:03.

promised to serve this country and she has done it really very, very

:12:03.:12:13.
:12:13.:12:15.

well and we should all look after her and be thankful.

:12:15.:12:21.

We have moved outsider to the garden. What you think? It is just

:12:21.:12:28.

like a garden! Upstairs you touched on your memory is as a boy of the

:12:28.:12:36.

Queen but you would have been about 10 in 1953. We know that you were

:12:36.:12:42.

10 because we have some homework here. From a young Paul McCartney

:12:42.:12:49.

he is 10 years old and 10 months. What is the story behind this?

:12:49.:12:55.

you remember? There was a competition for all the schools and

:12:55.:13:01.

you had to write about the Coronation or the monarchy. That

:13:01.:13:08.

was my entry. They won a prize for that. The lord mayor of London gave

:13:08.:13:18.
:13:18.:13:23.

me about! This is brilliant. Look at my neat handwriting. Gary, you

:13:23.:13:29.

won't remember the coronation but you remember at the Silver Jubilee?

:13:29.:13:36.

I think we have a little picture of you living very cute as a young boy.

:13:36.:13:42.

It was great, I remembered that will Street having a party in the

:13:42.:13:44.

garden and it brought the whole neighbourhood together, as it will

:13:44.:13:48.

do today. You can see the whole of England waving flags and that is

:13:48.:13:54.

brilliant. Last night you said, I was up against the railings and I

:13:54.:13:57.

never imagined I would be on the other side. Look at what you have

:13:57.:14:02.

done! It has been amazing. didn't give us any hints as to what

:14:02.:14:07.

would be on Europe set list, when there be a singalong because you

:14:07.:14:12.

are closing the show. There is a little bit of a singalong. We don't

:14:12.:14:16.

have long on the show but there is little sing along. I am going to

:14:16.:14:21.

ask the audience to join in on one little bit. There will be some

:14:21.:14:26.

Bangs, I can't think what number that will be on Lexmark they're

:14:26.:14:35.

going to have fun. I think it would go all the way around the UK! What

:14:35.:14:44.

are you going to be doing? I am doing at Gillette. Then we are

:14:44.:14:50.

coming back and doing the record, Sing, which is the Diamond Jubilee

:14:50.:15:00.

single. The girls much be so excited, they are over there.

:15:00.:15:05.

have about 30 people from the Commonwealth, the African

:15:05.:15:08.

Children's Choir are here and they were just loving being here, they

:15:08.:15:17.

cannot believe it. They are living the rain. You have met royalty so

:15:17.:15:27.
:15:27.:15:28.

many times, it must be wonderful I have been lucky, since the early

:15:28.:15:32.

days of the Beatles, I have met royalty a few times. I never

:15:32.:15:42.
:15:42.:15:43.

thought I would meet them as a kid. Was that your phone?! Yes. But for

:15:43.:15:46.

me it was the human aspect that you never realise because we always see

:15:46.:15:54.

them on stamps and money. The first time I met the Queen I was in a

:15:54.:15:58.

line-up and she lives at Windsor and said where you playing tomorrow

:15:58.:16:02.

night? I said we are playing at Slough, just outside Windsor. She

:16:02.:16:11.

said that's just Maras! You would not expect her to say that! -- near

:16:11.:16:21.
:16:21.:16:26.

I've always found her to be Berry nice and warm. She came and opened

:16:26.:16:29.

by performing arts academy and I asked her the other night if she

:16:30.:16:34.

remembered it, she did. She is all there. It is going to be a big

:16:34.:16:38.

month for you because of this and later in the month you are

:16:38.:16:45.

celebrating a big birthday. Any plans? Family. I like family's --

:16:45.:16:53.

birthdays with the family. A which birthday? 70! You should just have

:16:53.:17:01.

a huge concert in your garden. is one way to go. I will go for the

:17:01.:17:07.

small thing. Have a good time tonight. How long until the

:17:07.:17:15.

concert? 42 minutes. The 10,000 lucky guests have their invites

:17:15.:17:18.

through the ballot and are going to their seats from the royal picnic

:17:18.:17:23.

on what is already a day they will never forget. We went to make sure

:17:23.:17:30.

they have a picture memory of this Diamond Jubilee. It is the garden

:17:30.:17:34.

at Buckingham Palace. All the marquees are said, the picnics are

:17:34.:17:44.
:17:44.:17:47.

ready to be picked up and the steel All we need now is 10,000 people!

:17:47.:17:51.

The least I can do is help hand out the food and give people something

:17:51.:17:56.

to remember the day by. Nice to meet you. Let's get you with

:17:56.:18:03.

Buckingham Palace in the background. Somehow I have become the Jubilee

:18:03.:18:09.

official photographer for the public. I will take a picture on

:18:09.:18:13.

your picnic blanket. I never imagined I would ever be here.

:18:13.:18:23.

is it like? It is crazy. I unreal. -- and real. Nice to meet you. I

:18:23.:18:28.

like that you managed to get to the champagne tent so early. He looks

:18:28.:18:33.

like he is about to propose. I have the ring of the same as Kate

:18:33.:18:43.
:18:43.:18:48.

Middleton. Mine is new. Smile, you It will certainly be a day to

:18:48.:18:52.

remember. We are going to play a game, guess the guest by the noise

:18:52.:19:02.
:19:02.:19:13.

I am still standing... Sir Elton John! We're will come. -- welcome.

:19:13.:19:17.

We are glad you made it because you have not been well. I had pneumonia

:19:17.:19:20.

a couple of weeks ago in Los Angeles and had to be rushed to

:19:20.:19:24.

hospital because I could not breathe. They put me on antibiotics,

:19:24.:19:30.

gave me oxygen and I had done three shows this week. How is your voice?

:19:30.:19:37.

No problem, just the breathing and lungs. We were hearing from Sir

:19:37.:19:41.

Cliff Richard this afternoon that you hosted a party, a pre- jubilee

:19:41.:19:47.

concert party. We had a tea at a hotel up the road so my little boy

:19:47.:19:50.

could come to release part of the festivities because he's too young

:19:50.:19:56.

to come to the show. But when he gets older we can say you were at

:19:56.:20:01.

the Jubilee, you just went for the tea. Who is looking after him?

:20:01.:20:07.

nanny. Cliff was there, Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Annie Lennox, Kylie

:20:07.:20:15.

Minogue, David Walliams. A lot of people. Did you have food? No, we

:20:15.:20:19.

can't afford that! You had been doing the catering for these

:20:19.:20:26.

picnics, haven't you? A small number, 12,500 of them. We met

:20:26.:20:30.

earlier and you said you walk round the outside and could not believe

:20:30.:20:34.

it. If you write down 12,500 it looks quite a big number. But

:20:34.:20:37.

driving round the perimeter of the palace and seeing the queue of

:20:37.:20:44.

people, thinking every one of those will be needing a hamper, -- a

:20:44.:20:51.

hamper. You have created this amazing picnic box. How did you

:20:51.:21:01.
:21:01.:21:01.

Mark, the head chef of the palace, helped. We wanted to showcase

:21:01.:21:05.

British produce and also have a time in history, to celebrate 60

:21:05.:21:12.

years of the Queen. Coronation chicken was created for the moment

:21:12.:21:21.

she became Queen. So we played about with that, we have the

:21:21.:21:24.

strawberry dessert, a bit like it strawberry but with yoghurt and

:21:24.:21:28.

cream mixed in, rosewater, elderflower, biscuits, Moran,

:21:28.:21:32.

popping candy on the top and some of the strawberries come from

:21:32.:21:39.

Sandringham. -- Miranda. A no smoked salmon? There is. She does

:21:39.:21:49.
:21:49.:21:58.

If you are peckish there is a spare one behind you there. Adjust

:21:58.:22:05.

quickly... We did this for Princess Eugenie's birth to a couple of

:22:05.:22:13.

months ago. -- birthday. Edible candles, right? We did a whole

:22:13.:22:23.
:22:23.:22:33.

So just breakage. -- break it. Chocolate and caramel and passion

:22:33.:22:43.
:22:43.:22:53.

fruit. Mind your trousers! In there... Is that chocolate?

:22:53.:23:02.

People will be watching the big screens but surely you can give

:23:02.:23:06.

them a close at you because you are off on tour. I did Taunton last

:23:06.:23:10.

night which was freezing. The audience were frozen, bless them.

:23:10.:23:15.

Harrogate tomorrow, then Belfast, Chesterfield, Folkert, Birmingham,

:23:15.:23:18.

Newcastle, Blackpool. The such an amazing back-catalogue to choose

:23:19.:23:24.

from for tonight, how do you choose your set list for a night like

:23:24.:23:28.

tonight? I did not choose them tonight, somebody else did, which

:23:28.:23:34.

is OK. It would have been so difficult to choose. Crocodile Rock,

:23:34.:23:38.

your son, I'm still standing and hopefully we will lighted up with a

:23:38.:23:45.

like a karaoke machine. Are you doing classics? A mixture of both.

:23:45.:23:49.

You must feel at home because you know the Queen. We have met many

:23:49.:23:53.

times and she is a very funny, brilliant woman. I have a lot of

:23:53.:23:58.

great stories that I will cherish until I take them to my grave. She

:23:58.:24:02.

is wonderful. Will any of these stories possibly feature in this

:24:02.:24:06.

film that is rumoured to be about your life coming out? I don't know

:24:06.:24:12.

with any stories will end up in the film. But there will be a book of

:24:12.:24:16.

my life at some stage and they may end up in that. So you will not

:24:16.:24:21.

tell us if there is a film? cannot say. You are going in the

:24:22.:24:26.

royal box. If George Michael did not go on tour, you could go on

:24:26.:24:32.

tour for him. You could just lip synch. He looks so much like him.

:24:32.:24:37.

When he first step down I thought he had turned into George Michael!

:24:37.:24:42.

Are you happy with that? The kind of. Apart from not being able to

:24:42.:24:49.

Sing. So you are going to the royal box. You probably need to go and

:24:49.:24:54.

prepare. You should see the size of my box in there, a shoe box! Have

:24:54.:25:03.

you got a big dressing room? They are all the same size. The dogs

:25:03.:25:13.
:25:13.:25:14.

have good agreements! Jacuzzi? Come on then! Thank you both. Tonight is

:25:14.:25:17.

not just about the music. Across the Commonwealth a special

:25:17.:25:27.
:25:27.:25:32.

tradition will shine many a light This is a fort on Hadrian's Wall,

:25:32.:25:38.

this was the northern edge of the Roman Empire. It was a wild place

:25:38.:25:41.

and the wall was designed to repel raiders from the warlike tribes

:25:41.:25:46.

from across the border. The Romans, based in forts like this along the

:25:46.:25:50.

length of the wall, needed a way to communicate with each other. They

:25:50.:25:58.

had the ideal system - fire. Beacons of -- beacons are quick and

:25:58.:26:02.

easy warning signs, they continue to be used as a military tools for

:26:02.:26:07.

hundreds of years -- they continued. When Philip the second of Spain

:26:07.:26:11.

that launched his armada against the England of our first Queen

:26:11.:26:14.

Elizabeth, it was a series of beacons round the country that

:26:14.:26:18.

warned of the invasion fleet's arrival. By the 20th century the

:26:18.:26:23.

beacon had lost its importance. Electronic communications to go

:26:23.:26:27.

there, from the Morse code machine to walkie-talkies and field radios.

:26:27.:26:31.

These instant forms of communication, much more reliable,

:26:31.:26:36.

sooner signed the beacon to the annals of military history. In

:26:36.:26:41.

civilian life beacons live on, but now they have a ceremonial rather

:26:41.:26:45.

than military use. Bruno Pique revels in the title of pageant

:26:45.:26:52.

master. -- Bruno Pique. He has been organising events for more than a

:26:52.:26:58.

quarter of a century, continuing a fine tradition. Queen Victoria had

:26:58.:27:03.

her beacons lit for her diamond jubilee and some of those are

:27:03.:27:08.

massive, up to 50 ft high. Some people would Thatch them. They are

:27:08.:27:15.

massive structures. What have we done since then? Then we go back

:27:15.:27:18.

into the millennium, when we let them all across countries across

:27:18.:27:24.

the world. 2005, the bicentenary of the Battle of Trafalgar, that was

:27:24.:27:27.

the first time the Royal Family ever came together and lit beacons

:27:27.:27:32.

together. The Queen met the one in Portsmouth. The Prince of Wales did

:27:32.:27:37.

Scotland. The Earl of Wessex did kill a castle in Northern Ireland,

:27:37.:27:40.

the Princess Royal was Wales and the Duke of York was in Greenwich.

:27:40.:27:44.

So why believe they have had fun doing it as well. The beacons can

:27:44.:27:48.

be a wonderful sight. You can see why they are used for national

:27:48.:27:51.

celebrations. Whether it be for coronations, weddings, or major

:27:51.:27:56.

events, they help make an occasion really special. Hadrian's Wall is

:27:56.:28:01.

one of thousands of sites which will be led by beacons to celebrate

:28:02.:28:09.

the jubilee and today the volunteers are staging a trial run.

:28:09.:28:13.

You will not burn your hands there. Linda is helping organise the

:28:13.:28:18.

beacons there will be set a -- set up along Hadrian's Wall. What will

:28:18.:28:23.

happen on the night? Right the way across Hadrian's Wall communities

:28:23.:28:28.

will light beacons, 60, one for every year of the Queen's reign,

:28:28.:28:38.
:28:38.:28:44.

Why did you want be involved as an organisation? To be asked by the

:28:44.:28:48.

pageant master if we would participate and illuminate the wall

:28:48.:28:53.

was really a great honour for us and we were really excited to be

:28:53.:28:56.

able to ask our communities all the way across the wall if they would

:28:57.:29:02.

help us realise this brilliant event and be part of the whole

:29:02.:29:12.
:29:12.:29:20.

What an amazing experience, to be standing here, about 600 ft up in

:29:20.:29:23.

the Northumberland hills right on the line of Hadrian's Wall in a

:29:23.:29:29.

fortress built about 2000 years ago with beacons lighting the walls. It

:29:29.:29:36.

must have been very similar to this. Extraordinary. It has been a

:29:36.:29:39.

brilliant night on this ancient Roman Frontier and a tiny local

:29:40.:29:49.
:29:50.:29:52.

taste of what The National It is going to be the most amazing

:29:52.:30:02.
:30:02.:30:02.

spectacle. The Queen will be lighting the last of those 4000

:30:02.:30:10.

beacons from the stage here tonight. Sir Elton John is still with us. My

:30:10.:30:14.

favourite musical of all time is Billy Elliott, it means so much to

:30:14.:30:20.

me. It means a lot to me and it has been a big part of my life for the

:30:20.:30:27.

last few years. We celebrated hour seven years last week and 3000

:30:27.:30:32.

performances. I went to see it again with an you cast and each

:30:32.:30:41.

time I see it, I have to say it just gets to me all the time.

:30:41.:30:48.

are some interesting photos as well, a wonderful celebration. There it

:30:48.:30:55.

is! Took us through what is going on here. The kids were dying to put

:30:55.:31:04.

their faces in the cake. I escaped. We have a wonderful cake, you will

:31:04.:31:09.

not believe that that is the cake. It is a fruit cake. The Crown is

:31:09.:31:15.

made of sugar. We will not to let you near that one! You are writing

:31:15.:31:20.

a musical? I am hopefully going to write a new one with the man who

:31:20.:31:23.

wrote Billy Elliott and we're talking about writing a completely

:31:23.:31:27.

different kind of musical. This one is based on George Orwell's Animal

:31:27.:31:32.

Farm. We are going through the lyrics and deciding which way we

:31:32.:31:36.

are going to go with it. It is a very difficult thing to write and

:31:36.:31:41.

make into a musical but that is the challenge. I have been asked to

:31:41.:31:48.

write a lot of musicals because they are too easy. Completely

:31:48.:31:54.

different from Billy Elliott. in the north-east and you cannot go

:31:54.:32:00.

wrong! Shall go back to Lacey hears with the crowds?

:32:00.:32:05.

I am with some very lucky concert- goers, these people have tickets.

:32:05.:32:11.

Are you excited? Very excited. did you get your tickets? I just

:32:11.:32:15.

got the new laptop and I am all new to the internet, I applied for it

:32:15.:32:22.

and I won them on my but the! Double lucky. You have made quite a

:32:22.:32:27.

holiday of this? We travelled down to London on Saturday morning from

:32:27.:32:31.

Warrington and we are going back on Tuesday evening. What was the best

:32:31.:32:40.

part of the picnic? The champagne. You are from South Wales. Who are

:32:40.:32:46.

you looking forward to seeing tonight? I think Cliff Richard.

:32:46.:32:51.

of course Sir Elton John, could you do us a favour, we are going to

:32:51.:32:55.

have a quick best dressed competition will stop can you tell

:32:55.:33:05.
:33:05.:33:14.

us who is the winner? Samantha, then Margaret. And not forgetting

:33:14.:33:24.
:33:24.:33:31.

Dave. It is Samantha! She is the winner. Anything to say to Sir

:33:31.:33:41.
:33:41.:33:41.

Elton John? I love you, I always have. We have just had a flash of

:33:42.:33:51.
:33:52.:33:52.

your socks, it says Super and star or! Everybody is wondering what

:33:52.:33:56.

they would do if they were a king or queen for a day. What would you

:33:57.:34:06.
:34:07.:34:09.

do? What roles would you implement? That is a tough one. I would ban

:34:09.:34:18.

things, I would ban coaches from the West End. Here are some of your

:34:18.:34:28.
:34:28.:34:40.

If I was Queen, I would have a national dog day at work. I would

:34:40.:34:47.

have dinner with Beyonce, the pop star, amazing. I would be hit my

:34:47.:34:52.

wife. I am only joking! If I Was King for the day, Manchester City

:34:52.:34:56.

would be stripped of all their money and Manchester United would

:34:56.:35:00.

be stripped of all their luck and Arsenal were the top of the league.

:35:00.:35:10.
:35:10.:35:12.

If I was Queen for the day, I would go to Thorpe Park. If I was king, I

:35:12.:35:16.

would move all Trafford to the shores of Carrickfergus and there

:35:16.:35:22.

should be a place where we can bring the dog along. I would make a

:35:22.:35:26.

lot that everyone would have to laugh at least once a day because I

:35:26.:35:31.

think there is not enough happiness in the world. If I working for the

:35:31.:35:37.

day, I would reintroduce the death penalty. I would help people stop

:35:37.:35:43.

smoking, keep hospitals clean and the doctors clean and keep

:35:43.:35:53.
:35:53.:35:53.

everybody looking smart when they go to school. If I was king, I

:35:53.:35:57.

would have no big mansion made out of marble with Grecian statues of

:35:57.:36:04.

myself or stop people with no manners would all be imprisoned.

:36:04.:36:09.

would alleviate world hunger, end poverty. I would like for Scotland

:36:09.:36:13.

to qualify for the World Cup. was Queen for the day, I would make

:36:13.:36:18.

sure everyone had �1 million, and nobody would pay taxes and

:36:18.:36:28.
:36:28.:36:28.

everybody would have a ball. If I was king, I would ban health and

:36:28.:36:34.

safety and let all the adults climb trees and catch insects. Probably

:36:34.:36:37.

drive around the country, pick up the poor people and give them a bat.

:36:37.:36:43.

I would abolish all yellow lines so we could park anywhere. I would

:36:43.:36:49.

take all the people of the dole and put them in charge of the old

:36:49.:36:56.

people, looking after them. I would be married to a footballer for a

:36:56.:37:06.
:37:06.:37:09.

day, that his colt! David Beckham is my husband!

:37:09.:37:13.

90 for all that was as you are sending in will stop this is

Victoria, aged 10. Here are Emma and her friends representing

Australia and Canada. We're having our own party for the Queen, this

is Sarah from East Belfast. This is the cute one, this is Isabella

:37:35.:37:43.

Here are the girls, Sophie and the girls from Worcestershire

:37:47.:37:52.

celebrating the Jubilee and they say we love the Queen will stop

:37:53.:37:59.

this is a family in Huddersfield, they look quite familiar! Shelley

:37:59.:38:09.
:38:09.:38:14.

play another game of who is the guest? Who on earth could that be?

:38:14.:38:24.
:38:24.:38:27.

It is only Kylie Minogue! Lovely to see you. Did you like that? He is

:38:27.:38:37.
:38:37.:38:39.

very good at the Trombert. How are you feeling ahead of the big night?

:38:39.:38:45.

Oh, that is the sunshine. It is very exciting. It is such a funny

:38:45.:38:50.

atmosphere because stars keep bumping into each other will stop

:38:50.:38:56.

the are stories aplenty. Down from my dressing room is Sir, So, Dame.

:38:56.:39:01.

The is it even daunting for you? Right now, I feel OK but the closer

:39:01.:39:06.

any of us get to that central stage, it will be amazing. Nothing has

:39:06.:39:11.

been confirmed but in the papers it says Robbie Williams will open. Are

:39:11.:39:15.

you relieved you are not opening the concert, would that be too

:39:15.:39:24.

much? That might be too much! The spirit is just wonderful. What are

:39:24.:39:32.

you going to do? I am doing a little or medley. I have also

:39:32.:39:38.

invited a dance group to perform with me. You are celebrating your

:39:38.:39:44.

own silver jubilee because it is 25 years of Kylie Minogue in a pub?

:39:44.:39:52.

have called this year K 25 and there is lots going on. It has been

:39:52.:39:57.

a fabulous year for me. You have an OBE he as well so you feel you're

:39:57.:40:03.

giving something back to the Queen? I hope she is going to enjoy it.

:40:03.:40:07.

How big a the Jubilee celebrations back in Australia? I have had lots

:40:07.:40:11.

of text messages and e-mails from friends and family who are all

:40:11.:40:16.

going to be watching and it seems like they are very excited, too. It

:40:16.:40:24.

is hard to express to them being here, it is just that the spirit is

:40:24.:40:32.

so nice were ever you go. There are only 18 minutes before the start.

:40:32.:40:36.

You'll be fine but I have to ask, there are rumours that you and

:40:36.:40:40.

Jason Donovan will reunite over the summer at another concert in Hyde

:40:41.:40:49.

Park? You are one of the people who are most happy about that? Alex,

:40:49.:40:55.

you had a picture of Jason Donovan on your wall as a child. Yes, I did.

:40:55.:41:01.

Yes, that is actually happening and I think it will be a bizarre moment

:41:01.:41:08.

but a beautiful one. It it is going to make people's dreams come true.

:41:08.:41:15.

We can hear the warm-up acts onstage at the moment. It is

:41:15.:41:20.

gorgeous and the sun looks like it is going to stay. It is beautiful.

:41:20.:41:25.

Do you know where you are within the running order? Actually, I

:41:25.:41:29.

don't. I should know these things but there is so much information

:41:29.:41:35.

and scheduling at it again that I am just going where they tell me,

:41:35.:41:39.

when they tell me. I think I am about halfway through. You have had

:41:39.:41:44.

a busy few weeks because you are fresh back from Cannes, permitting

:41:44.:41:48.

your new film there and we saw club earlier and it is so different from

:41:48.:41:54.

the Kylie Minogue we're used to. absolutely loved doing it. Let's

:41:54.:42:04.
:42:04.:42:27.

It is quite different. It was an amazing experience, the director

:42:28.:42:34.

was just revered and people love him. It is so nice to step out of

:42:34.:42:38.

what I have become so accustomed to doing and go back to what I started

:42:38.:42:47.

out doing it with a fresh challenge. You are going to be singing a

:42:47.:42:56.

little bit more up-tempo tonight? We have Dame Shirley Bassey

:42:56.:42:59.

performing and lots of people have been around the block numerous

:42:59.:43:04.

times, do you think you will be celebrating your Diamond Jubilee,

:43:04.:43:12.

still here in 25 years? Oh, gosh, who knows? People like that, like

:43:12.:43:17.

Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Cliff Richard, they just show that it can

:43:18.:43:21.

be done and it is what you do and what you love doing and people want

:43:21.:43:29.

more of it, he who knows, we will see? We certainly hope you will be

:43:29.:43:34.

here in 25 years and have a brilliant evening will stop it is

incredible, the guests we are getting tonight. Time to go back to

about the Welsh contingent, tonight there is Tom Jones, Dame Shirley

:44:02.:44:05.

Bassey and Rob Brydon presenting and there is a real party

:44:05.:44:09.

atmosphere. Yesterday most of the guys here had their street parties

:44:09.:44:14.

but they have not let go of the party atmosphere tonight. Who are

:44:14.:44:20.

you looking forward to? Jessie J, the concert is going to be

:44:20.:44:27.

brilliant. Wasn't she amazing on the Voice? We love her. I cannot

:44:27.:44:32.

wait to see Take That, I am a massive fan of Gary Barlow. Gary

:44:32.:44:42.
:44:42.:44:43.

Barlow, we salute you, what at champion. Sir Tom Jones. What a

:44:43.:44:50.

great voice? I love the Welsh voice. We also have somebody is here.

:44:50.:44:57.

Let's wish them a happy birthday. You would think that was the

:44:57.:45:01.

weirdest costume in Wales, it is the weirdest costumes in the whole

:45:01.:45:07.

of Britain today. Now it is time for our Royal Mexican wave. We have

:45:25.:45:32.

we managed about 100, but it was a royal wave. That means it is a

:45:42.:45:48.

A royal wave from Kylie, who has decided to stay longer. You was is

excitement is kicking in now and in a few minutes we will have live

pictures of the royal family as they take their seats in the Royal

Box, ready for Robbie Williams to open the concert. Under 12 minutes

to go. In 1953 a different type of music was ringing in the years of

:47:30.:47:40.
:47:40.:47:43.

Her Majesty. She took her steps on The coronation of George VI. Queen

:47:43.:47:49.

Elizabeth's coronation. And William and Kate's wedding. Wright were

:47:49.:47:52.

occasions celebrated by millions but they would not have been quite

:47:52.:47:58.

the same if it had not been for a bloke from Oldham. Born in 1902,

:47:58.:48:03.

William Walton is famous for his Royal March, Crown Imperial. But he

:48:03.:48:11.

grew up in order near Manchester. With smoke from 270 cotton mills

:48:11.:48:13.

shrouding the sky, he seemed destined for an unremarkable life

:48:13.:48:17.

until his father read that Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford was

:48:17.:48:23.

auditioning for choirboys. Getting a place at a cathedral choir school

:48:23.:48:25.

like this is the ecclesiastical equivalent of joining the Beatles,

:48:25.:48:31.

isn't it? Absolut. In nearly did not happen because Walton's father

:48:31.:48:35.

went on a pub crawl the night before he was supposed to come for

:48:35.:48:38.

his audition and drank all the train fare way. Mother had to

:48:38.:48:42.

borrow the money from the local greengrocer, they finally got down

:48:42.:48:51.

here for the trials and missed them but fortunately they agreed to hear

:48:51.:48:55.

him and he got in. So had it not been for that train fare, English

:48:55.:49:05.
:49:05.:49:06.

music could be quite different. Walton love to live in Oxford and

:49:06.:49:10.

daughter was the most beautiful place he had seen. When his voice

:49:10.:49:15.

started to break he feared being sent home to all them. He devised

:49:15.:49:18.

strategies in his life here to avoid having to go back, one of

:49:18.:49:22.

which was to develop his composition. This was composed by

:49:23.:49:32.
:49:33.:49:35.

him? This is a piano piece he wrote when he was only 15. A very

:49:35.:49:39.

energetic left-hand part that he wrote. He really felt he had to

:49:39.:49:42.

make and sell special because he did not want to go back to Aldham.

:49:42.:49:46.

What would have happened if he had? He would have gone back to working

:49:46.:49:49.

the cotton mills like other children of the same sorts of

:49:49.:49:54.

families. Did the strategy work? did and he was taken under the wing

:49:54.:49:59.

of the Dean he wants to push this boy's talent. Music allowed Walton

:49:59.:50:03.

to escape his old life, his career as a composer rocketed launching

:50:03.:50:09.

into high-society. Crown imperial grace George Inn 6's coronation and

:50:09.:50:13.

many royal occasions since. Today it is being performed in

:50:13.:50:23.
:50:23.:50:32.

Christchurch Cathedral specially You know you have arrived when you

:50:32.:50:37.

asked to compose something Faure coronation. The you certainly do.

:50:37.:50:41.

Isn't it wonderful? He really knew how to write for these grand

:50:41.:50:46.

occasions. It feels Royal. How is he doing that? The wide range of

:50:46.:50:52.

instruments. The strings, all of that comes together to create this

:50:52.:51:02.
:51:02.:51:02.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 52 seconds

:51:02.:51:54.

great, dramatic, know the effect. Today Sir William Walton is

:51:54.:51:58.

regarded as one of Britain's greatest composers, favoured by

:51:58.:52:02.

kings and queens. Pretty good going for a boy who couldn't afford the

:52:02.:52:12.
:52:12.:52:27.

We will be hearing very different music tonight. There they are, in

:52:27.:52:32.

the royal box, all seated and ready to go. Brian May is up there! He

:52:32.:52:42.

can relax this time round. Prince Edward. All sitting waiting.

:52:42.:52:47.

Only six minutes and 35 seconds. All the artists are probably a bit

:52:47.:52:52.

nervous now. Sir Cliff Richard told us earlier he was feeling a bit

:52:52.:52:56.

nervous but very excited and early on he popped in to have a chat

:52:56.:53:03.

about what he will be performing tonight. Is our lovely bus bringing

:53:03.:53:09.

back great memories. The last time I was on a bus I drove it! I didn't

:53:09.:53:13.

actually, I was getting home from the big pageant on the Thames

:53:13.:53:16.

yesterday, my car got lost, it was pouring with rain so we got on the

:53:17.:53:20.

bus to Chelsea. I had to sign autographs but I got on a bus and

:53:20.:53:26.

it was great fun. Did you have a singalong on the bus? Quietly. I

:53:26.:53:30.

was having photographs taken by everybody. So I thought I'd better

:53:30.:53:34.

not make too much of a play or that. How has your day been? I have done

:53:34.:53:38.

nothing. I got here an hour early because there is nothing on the

:53:38.:53:42.

streets. Everybody thinks the streets will be jammed but there is

:53:42.:53:47.

nobody on them. Sarah Elton through a wonderful party for us and we are

:53:47.:53:51.

all coming in and out at different times. This afternoon? That is when

:53:51.:53:57.

it happened. But will people turn up tonight? I think so. I am here!

:53:57.:54:03.

I could do two hours if they want. It is an incredible five, all the

:54:03.:54:08.

different acts and artists. There is always something about doing a

:54:08.:54:13.

show like this, there is an excitement there. I guess it is to

:54:13.:54:17.

do with the longevity of monarchy, the fact you are in the presence of

:54:17.:54:23.

somebody connected to Henry VII somewhere along the line. About 10

:54:23.:54:33.

years ago we performed in her back garden, all the competitive thing

:54:33.:54:36.

disappears and we become like a true fraternity of singers and

:54:36.:54:43.

dancers. Backstage is always very relaxed. It is fantastic. I love

:54:43.:54:47.

these events. Can you give us any clues as to what is on your set

:54:47.:54:51.

list tonight? I am told I should not really so I will only say when

:54:51.:54:55.

I was sitting thinking about it I thought I am probably older than

:54:55.:55:02.

everyone on the show, so I probably might be the only one who could

:55:02.:55:10.

Sing a hit from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 2000. So I will do that.

:55:10.:55:15.

you be congratulating the Queen in true Sir Cliff Richard style?

:55:15.:55:19.

will play it by ear and see if I dare to! We are looking forward to

:55:19.:55:29.
:55:29.:55:32.

Not long now until he is performing in front of Prince Harry there...

:55:32.:55:40.

We did see Heston there. Sat at the top there. The Duke and Duchess of

:55:40.:55:46.

Cambridge are there. They almost have as good a view as us. We have

:55:46.:55:49.

been really lucky that all the artists have dropped by this

:55:49.:55:55.

afternoon and this evening on the show. Early on... We had a dream

:55:55.:55:59.

come true! They said would you like to speak to Stevie Wonder? We said

:55:59.:56:06.

OK! We put a keyboard in front of the bus and this is what happened...

:56:06.:56:10.

It has just gone lunchtime and we were setting up the bus and look

:56:10.:56:18.

who turned up. Stevie Wonder! question is how much did you pay

:56:18.:56:22.

them to do that?! You had just finished rehearsing, did it go

:56:23.:56:32.
:56:33.:56:34.

well? I am very happy. Good English accent! Will this be the first time

:56:34.:56:40.

you have played for the Queen? First time, yes. A dream come true?

:56:40.:56:47.

It is and I just hope we can do more of a longer situation at some

:56:47.:56:52.

stage for Her Majesty because my two youngest sons wanted to be here

:56:52.:57:01.

but they have school today. So I said you cannot come. Come on, Dad!

:57:01.:57:11.
:57:11.:57:16.

It is really a wonderful thing. Isn't she lovely? It is a

:57:16.:57:22.

celebration, I am honoured to be invited. Could we have a touch of

:57:22.:57:31.

Habi birthday? Sing with me? Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to

:57:31.:57:41.
:57:41.:57:50.

Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday! That was a dream come

:57:50.:57:54.

true and that was for the Queen's official birthday on 16th June.

:57:54.:58:00.

Such a special moment. Indeed. We are surrounded by the Military

:58:00.:58:08.

Wives Choir. Congratulations. What was it like singing? Amazing. I

:58:08.:58:13.

feel so privileged to be part of it. And working with Gary Barlow as

:58:13.:58:19.

well. And led by the wonderful Gareth Malone. Yes, a great person.

:58:19.:58:23.

You are part of the concert tonight but who are you particularly

:58:23.:58:27.

looking forward to seeing performing? Where to begin? Robbie

:58:27.:58:37.

Williams! Kylie. Tom Jones. It is superb. Do you get to stick around

:58:37.:58:42.

after for the party? Sadly we have to head straight back. Make the

:58:42.:58:48.

most of it now! On the champagne before even performing!

:58:48.:58:58.
:58:58.:58:58.

Thank you to you, and all our guests. We will now sit back and

:58:58.:59:02.

This edition of The One Show comes live from backstage at the Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace. Matt and Alex are joined by some of the biggest names in music, including Sir Elton John, Kylie Minogue and Gary Barlow. There's a mini garden party for the Military Wives Choir with the snacks prepared by Heston Blumenthal. And all this is broadcast from a double decker One Show bus.
