Today's show is dedicated to the best new films and music, with spy
movie Johnny English. High School Rob Flett Lemonade Mouth, and a
performance from Mobil nominated On today's show, we are bringing
you everything you need to see that his film and music to keep you
entertained. Hands up if you like gadgets. Hands up if you like to
have a laugh. You do? Well, you're going to love the new Rowan
Atkinson film Johnny English Reborn. He is basically a spy who is not
very good but he is very funny and clever. I cannot help it, I do that
when I talk. We have gone behind the scenes. Sometimes you get to go
and have a little look around, but we did a lot better than that. By
dawn to talk to the main man and I went right to the top to meet the
head designer of gadgets, who taught me how to make a great gizmo.
He knows no fear, he knows no danger. He knows nothing. Johnny
English is back. Ridiculous but fearless. He is the most unlikely
agent in her Majesty's Secret Service. Work hard, play hard.
this unusual spy, disaster may be an option but failure never is.
When are we on security? English? Give me 24 hours.
Luckily for Johnny, he has some high-tech gadgets. Including a
voice-activated Rolls-Royce. A pen that turns into razor wire, and the
camera that fire starts. -- a camera that fires darts. I have
been given exclusive access to find out exactly how they bring the
gadgets to life. First up, I chat to all for Parker, the director.
This is Mi seven, their technical Lab. Johnny has come to collect the
gadgets that he needs for his mission and he is pressing buttons
that he should not, in typical style. That is how it turns out on
the cinema screen, but this is how they actually made it work. The
laptop fires a CD along something wires. At the moment the CD reaches
the dummy, a technician activates an air canister that blows off its
head, so it looks like the C D did it. It is very simple. We took out
the CD drive. We put in an air cannon. So if somebody is annoying
me to my right, I just think, you know what, shut up! It comes out
faster than you imagine. It really goes for it. Next stop, the art
director. Dominic is an expert in designing the coolest gadgets. Was
there anything in the script that you thought, I cannot wait to
create that? The bow tie it bolt cutters, for cutting wire fences.
The production designer will sketch how he thinks the gadget should
look and then the special-effects people will take it on. What is
that? That is just a torch. Some of the gadgets require special effects,
just like that. But others are surprisingly low-tech. Rowan
Atkinson has to act with all kinds of spy accessories, and in this
scene, he tries out one of his favourites. I did not think there
would be so many sweet treats. There seemed to be a lot. Semtex
chewing-gum. This one, which is my favourite, voice changing trouble
lozenges. You take one out and put it in your mouth, and then suddenly,
it is extraordinary. Your voice changes. I hope it works with you.
It might go the other way. definitely remember these.
never know when they might come in handy for your voice changing needs.
Voice changing travel lodges. -- travel lozenges. This has made me
want to have a go at designing gadgets. Jim overseas how
everything in the film looks, so he is just the man to put my designing
skills to the test. I have had a look at the set and it looks
brilliant. I cannot act. Is there any chance I could be a designer?
Absolutely. Have a look at page 94. There is a device contained in the
script, can you design that device? Thank you, Jim. It looks like I've
got some reading to do. "He takes a pen from his belt and four blade
snapped open." Time to get designing. It is a pen with four
blades and a red flashing light, and a wire. I don't know. I haven't
thought about this. I have just drawn it. I need to start again,
This time, I'm using just about At least my drawing apparatus has
helped me to focus. That is the main thing. Click, fire, goal. Let
us see what Jim thinks. It is a little the rough, but I think the
idea is there. That was my basic pen. And then when you click the
end, the blades come out. And that fires forwards. Is that full-size?
No. I think it is great. That is interestingly enough, fairly close
to what we did. Is it? It is. The grapple look comes out like this,
and then there is another one at the end, and this goes up his
sleeve. This fires the thing out of the end. That looks really cool.
Mind does not look back cool. should say at the end and Tucson to
the top of the building. -- this shoots out of the end and books on
to the top of the building. Up we go. Are you sure that is be a
sender? I would know it anywhere. Agent in distress, agent in
distress! ALARM sounds. Agent in distress, agent in
distress! I am over here! Thank you for telling me more about that. I
will let you keep my design. I will put it on the wall. I am not saying
that being an actor or an actress is no fun, but it strikes me that
there are plenty more exciting roles to play in the movie business,
especially if you're working on something as action-packed as
Johnny English Reborn. It looks like there are a few lozenges
missing? Was at you, Barney? He sounds the same. What about you?
Don't Look at me, I didn't have any. Head over to a website after the
show to see more hi-tech gadgets. I get to try out something before it
goes into the film. It is fast and fun. What are you doing? I would
like to thank all the people who have been checking out the message
boards. If you were in charge, what gadgets were to create? Coral says
"I would invent a gadget that can send me anywhere in the world and
back again." Sapphire says she would invent a gadget that would
turn her -- turn her invisible. Orange shy parakeets says: "I would
like a laser and a new piece to communicate with other Spies, and a
video camera necklace." Finally, Lennon crazy Kamal says that he or
she would invent a portal to another dimension. If the transport
yourself to the red carpet of a film premiere, you might bump into
the stars of our next film. Disney have brought out a film called
Lemonade Mouth and when they're a Lister's editor London, I was the
tour guide for a day. This being Blue Peter, we added a challenge.
London, home to nearly 8 million people. Hundreds of famous
attractions and loads of tourists. Not surprising that the city
receives over 20 million visitors every year. Today is the
destination for three more visitors. Hayley... Brigitte... And Adam.
They are the stars of Disney's latest hit TV movie, Lemonade Mouth.
Lemonade Mouth is a band formed when these guys met in school
detention. Instead of doing their punishment, they messed around with
instruments and discovered that they find it good when they played
together. -- they sounded good. They have been hard at work
promoting their new movie. Meeting their fans and performing on live
television. I have arranged a special tour to show them off on
time during their visit, and help them kickback. But this will not be
a traditional sightseeing tour. On board their private tour bus, I
have left them a surprise. Helen here. I hope you are enjoying the
bus. This is going to be your exclusive tour of the capital city.
I have done a little bit of research and found out something
about each of you. I am hoping that I have got three farm things lined
up and you will have a good day. All will become clear. For now, sit
back, and enjoy the bus. I'm in. Time to roll, bus driver, and the
first destination is for the lead singer. They're playing our song on
the radio! Olivia is shy about performing at first but with
support from her friends, she soon shows off her incredible voice on
stage. Bridget, as the lead singer, you're a bit of a legend. I'm going
to give you the chance to prove yourself. I've got a singing
challenge for you. It is not going to be easy. Adam and Hayley are
going to pick the songs so you will not have any time to practise.
What? I think you can do it. Good luck. Karaoke is a true test of a
singing voice and without any rehearsal, how will Bridget sound?
The guys have come to one of the top Karaoke venues in London, where
even Prince Harry has been spotted. Let us see what tracks APEC. I love
this one. Are you ready? I was born ready. Tate it away, Bridget.
I've got chills, they are multiplying.
# And then losing control. # Cost the power you are supplying.
# It's a leks -- it's electrifying. # You're the one I want, you are
the one I want, sorry, I couldn't resist. One of the best-selling
singles of all time. Poker face by Lady Gaga.
# He can read my poker face. # Poker face, Bridget clearly
demonstrating her skills with the mike. I want to know what her
secrets are for eight top singing voice. I think it is important that
you do not strain your voice. Also, warm-up and stay hydrated. That was
awesome. Thank you for being my back-up singers. Next up, at him.
The band was originally called Wen. He is the keyboard player and
rapper. I know that you like your head of dancing. I have lined up a
special treat for you. -- hip hop dancing. Grab your dancing shoes

practise their incredible dance routines. It looks like the visit
has not gone unnoticed by a few fans. Up to 200 fans crassest of
different styles are taught here every week. Choreographer Roland is
teaching contemporary hip-hop today. He will try to teach one of the
signature moves from his routine for Adam to learn in just a few
minutes. Let us see Adam's moves. Are you ready? Let's do it. Up over
the left. Once again. Move forwards. It is good. Not bad for a beginner
but compared to these guys I think you had better get some practice in.
Because this is what it is supposed to look like. The next stop is for
Hayley who plays the lead guitarist of the band who likes to stand out
from the crowd. As the lead guitarist you need to look good. If
you need to look funky because all eyes are on you. It gives me great
pleasure to set you visit a challenge because it involves
shopping for something for me! London is full of vintage clothing
shops so I want you to find something for me to wear. Good luck

trendy shops like this boutique. That would look good with her
blonde hair. The is looks pretty sophisticated. I am a
sophisticated?! Yes, I need new books. I love those. That is a
black skirt. Leave it to the girls, Adam. I really have no idea what
they got for me, I am looking forward to finding out.
And we end with a deal over London, 135 metres in the air. I hope you
have a head for heights. Enjoy yourselves on the London Eye.
I am scared of heights, but it will be great!

London Eye because you can see the whole city.
The architecture is amazing. all that nature it in the middle of
that city. What a great day, so much fun seeing the sights of
London. Helen, I hope you will like what we got for you. I bullied her
into getting me a present! Let's take a look at it.

# I can remember that when I was a little youth, I wanted to fly
around the world making a new life. # I never thought today, I'd be
where I am now. # Yo, wanted to be a fireman.
# Then I lost the desire, man. # The second I got old enough, to
buy myself a cider can. # Yeah, I was a smart little kid,
that side's departed me since. # These days you can catch me,
sitting on the bench in the park with a lager and crisps.

be possible. # Ha, try and figure that out.

those pounds. # I wanted to live in those clouds.
