:01:14.:01:18.

have celebrities, we have fashion, competition winners and we have got

:01:18.:01:24.

a very special guest. Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, has agreed

:01:24.:01:29.

to open a brand new Blue Peter garden here. A we were blown away

:01:29.:01:33.

that somebody so important helped us Open the garden, and her name is

:01:33.:01:39.

Princess Anne. Her Royal Highness Princess Anne is the daughter of

:01:39.:01:43.

the Queen and Prince Philip. She has three brothers, Prince Edward,

:01:43.:01:47.

Prince Andrew and Prince Charles, who is heir to the throne. Princess

:01:47.:01:52.

Anne is the mother of Peter and Zara Phillips, recently married

:01:52.:01:57.

England rugby captain Mike Tindall. She is also on tea to Prince Harry

:01:57.:02:05.

and Prince William. -- Auntie. You can find out how everything went in

:02:05.:02:10.

the garden scene. Now, let's talk about something exciting. I do like

:02:10.:02:14.

a bit of experimental. And I do like food! If you watched

:02:14.:02:18.

Incredible Edibles, it has been on every day, you know that Stefan

:02:18.:02:23.

Gates is a legend. He likes to make memorable meals. Because the

:02:23.:02:27.

weather has been so freezing, we wondered if he could make something

:02:27.:02:31.

freezing and edible. He does come about with things you would

:02:31.:02:35.

normally find in the kitchen. The weather has been freezing

:02:35.:02:39.

recently. Just the other week it dropped to minus 18 in

:02:39.:02:43.

Buckinghamshire. You might not like having to rub up against the cold,

:02:43.:02:46.

but when it comes to getting creative in the kitchen, the cold

:02:46.:02:50.

is brilliant. Before I show you might coolest kitchen creations, I

:02:50.:02:56.

want to let you in on an amazing secret about the cold. Here we go.

:02:56.:03:04.

Parmesan. It does not a little bit like sick. Food is made up of

:03:04.:03:09.

molecules. And they are very interesting, because when they

:03:09.:03:14.

warned, they zip around. But when they are cold, those molecules

:03:14.:03:20.

slowdown, so we smelt boot lefts. A fridge is pretty good at slowing

:03:20.:03:26.

molecules down. But there is a better way. CO2 canisters are used

:03:26.:03:33.

for putting out fires, but can also unfreeze food. Fast. This is

:03:33.:03:37.

freezing cold, I will smell it again. It smells pretty much of

:03:37.:03:41.

nothing. That is because all of those of flavour volatile molecules

:03:41.:03:47.

are not really moving any more. I promised you I would show you some

:03:47.:03:52.

really cool of food. I will show you the coolest desert on the

:03:52.:03:56.

planet ever. But I need to get something that is really, really

:03:56.:04:05.

dangerous. The liquid nitrogen. - 196 degrees. It is incredibly cold,

:04:05.:04:12.

and incredibly dangerous. Just look at what it does to Arrows. -- Annie

:04:12.:04:22.
:04:22.:04:23.

Rose. It has been there for a few seconds. It looks lovely, doesn't

:04:23.:04:28.

it? That is how cold it is. But you can use this stuff for food. I am

:04:28.:04:33.

going to make the fastest ice cream on the planet by pouring liquid

:04:33.:04:37.

nitrogen straight into the ice cream base. Basically, cream, sugar

:04:37.:04:43.

and a little bit of vanilla flavouring. A bit of a stir. This

:04:43.:04:50.

is what I call cooking! There we have it. Ice-cream made in 13

:04:50.:05:00.
:05:00.:05:00.

I love it! And I have saved a little liquid nitrogen for the

:05:00.:05:06.

topping. Deep frozen strawberries and raspberries. They are a bit bit

:05:06.:05:13.

like that, though. Let's make them a bit smaller. I am nearly ready to

:05:13.:05:18.

serve my super-cool desert. But fantastic freezing doesn't stop at

:05:18.:05:22.

the food. There is nothing interesting about a bowl, unless

:05:22.:05:28.

you can make one purely out of ice. If it sounds tricky, it is not.

:05:28.:05:32.

What you need is two plastic bowls, don't use china or glass, because

:05:32.:05:37.

they can crack. What we are going to do is put some water into the

:05:37.:05:43.

large bowl, and then push the small ball down into it. It is a whole

:05:43.:05:48.

lot of water we are going to freeze. You can but whatever you want into

:05:48.:05:55.

the water, just remember to create a hollow. Freeze everything

:05:55.:06:01.

overnight, then remove the plastic balls. There we go, won't you sick

:06:01.:06:08.

-- beautiful bowl. Liquid nitrogen ice cream of. And then, my liquid

:06:08.:06:18.

nitrogen popping. -- topping. A little bit of frozen Parmesan. None

:06:18.:06:28.
:06:28.:06:32.

of this now, but all of the taste! I am in heaven! That is the coolest

:06:32.:06:41.

of desert on the planet. It really is cool.

:06:41.:06:45.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry sometimes! I had fish ice-cream

:06:45.:06:50.

won't! We will talk about that later.

:06:50.:06:54.

Some things on the show go down in history, we are hoping to date is

:06:54.:06:59.

one of them. We are reopening the famous Blue Peter garden. We had to

:06:59.:07:03.

leave the studio and trouble 500 metres of that way.

:07:03.:07:07.

Hello and welcome to the piazza in Media City in Salford, the new home

:07:07.:07:12.

to the Blue Peter sunken garden, hiding just behind these trellises.

:07:12.:07:18.

Not yet! It will be revealed very soon. When we decided to move our

:07:18.:07:21.

studios to salt but can a we wanted to bring a bit of the garden with

:07:21.:07:25.

us, because we know you like it. Kris Commons has been the gardener

:07:25.:07:31.

for many years. It cannot have been easy. Moving a garden more than 200

:07:31.:07:36.

miles? Up against the clock. We worked day and night, There are few

:07:36.:07:43.

sore muscles! It is actually in the wrong place! I'm only kidding. Some

:07:43.:07:48.

amazing work. We are now going to find that how you got it from

:07:48.:07:53.

London to hearing Salford. The Blue Peter garden has been home

:07:54.:08:01.

to some of the most memorable moments on the show. It has been

:08:01.:08:05.

host to hundreds of guests over the years. From international movie

:08:06.:08:10.

stars to this. It has been transformed into a winter

:08:10.:08:18.

Wonderland. And even had a human cannonball fired out a bit. -- five

:08:18.:08:23.

out of it. But after 40 years at BBC Television Centre is, it is

:08:23.:08:28.

time to move it here, to Salford. But how do you make the garden 200

:08:28.:08:34.

miles up 0? There is only one man for that job. Chris has been the

:08:34.:08:37.

Blue Peter garden of for eight years, but moving this piece of

:08:37.:08:41.

history to its new home in Salford is his biggest challenge to date.

:08:41.:08:46.

He started eight months ago, back in 20th July 11. First on the list

:08:46.:08:51.

is the Italian sunken garden. This is a massive jigsaw that has

:08:51.:08:56.

already been put together. You have to remember where those pieces go.

:08:56.:09:03.

That is the idea! This Italian sunken garden was built in 1978 by

:09:03.:09:07.

the first Blue Peter Gardner, Percy Thrower. It took almost six months

:09:07.:09:13.

to build. The presenters finished it off by putting their hand, beat

:09:13.:09:17.

and paw prints in the concrete. So piece by piece, it is all coming

:09:17.:09:21.

with us. How why are you going to know where to start? I have got to

:09:21.:09:31.

make sure I market will. These will go in first. So one brought up.

:09:31.:09:35.

order to move this jigsaw of the slabs can his ideas be clearly

:09:35.:09:40.

labelled each individual piece, so that when he gets up to sort that

:09:40.:09:43.

can they can put them back in the same order. I will slot that in and

:09:43.:09:52.

work of that. But the biggest piece of all is the handbrake slab.

:09:52.:09:58.

is a monster. Even that isn't a patch on the Statue of Petra, which

:09:58.:10:02.

weighs over a ton. Petra was the first Blue Peter dog, and she has

:10:02.:10:09.

been here since 1979. We will see you in Salford! Finally, the time

:10:09.:10:13.

capsule. It was buried in the year 2000 so that the next generation of

:10:13.:10:17.

viewers can see what life was like at the turn of the millennium.

:10:17.:10:23.

will be coming out in the year 2029! You have probably spotted we

:10:23.:10:27.

are digging it up early, but the plan is not to open it, but to bury

:10:28.:10:32.

it, unopened, in Salford. It is hidden in a top secret location, so

:10:32.:10:38.

we need to find it first! I have spoken to my friends in the Secret

:10:38.:10:43.

Service, they sent us this map. That is where the green house used

:10:43.:10:47.

to be to stop if we go three metres from that war, one metre from that,

:10:47.:10:53.

that is where our time capsule is. -- from that wall. Let's get

:10:53.:11:03.
:11:03.:11:03.

digging! Keep going, but you back into it. -- put your back into it.

:11:04.:11:10.

Keep up the good work! Cheers, thanks to the your help! Ber 24

:11:10.:11:17.

hours later, he is still digging! Solid concrete. This makes it

:11:17.:11:23.

pretty much impossible to dig this hole with a spade. So it is time to

:11:23.:11:31.

bring in the big guns. I hope it is down there! In the end, it takes 72

:11:31.:11:36.

hours, several men and the digger, but the time capsule has been found,

:11:36.:11:41.

and can make its way up north along with everything else. Fast-forward

:11:41.:11:45.

eight months, and with a spring on its way, it is time to put the

:11:45.:11:51.

garden back together. The new garden is been created in the

:11:51.:11:56.

public piazza at Media City UK, so that everyone can enjoy it. But

:11:56.:12:01.

this is a big build, and Chris has only 11 days to complete it. The

:12:01.:12:07.

garden has to be sunken, so the first job is to dig it out. Several

:12:07.:12:11.

days later, Chris is ready to put in the first piece of this giant

:12:11.:12:18.

jigsaw. I have got one flow, and that means one floor. The number

:12:18.:12:22.

one means it is the edge of the pond, so what I am going to do is

:12:22.:12:26.

to get all the pieces all round the edge of the pond, and the rest,

:12:27.:12:31.

with a bit of luck, should all fall into place. But this amount of

:12:31.:12:34.

precision takes time, and the next day, Chris and the team are still

:12:34.:12:43.

at it, so I have come a long. You will need be used. Why not lay a

:12:43.:12:53.

few slabs? I would love to. Just slide that in, just a slight Papac.

:12:53.:13:02.

I will leave you to that. I am all right at jigsaws, but even those

:13:02.:13:12.
:13:12.:13:12.

pieces are small. We might be here while the stop and we are. One of

:13:12.:13:17.

the final piece is to go in is the handprints of the old presenters. -

:13:17.:13:24.

- the final pieces. And a few days later it is time for the class of

:13:24.:13:34.
:13:34.:13:43.

Well done! So from the latest Blue Peter dog to the very first. It is

:13:43.:13:48.

time for Pedro to take pride of place in the new garden as our very

:13:48.:13:53.

own garden dog. That just leaves the time capsule. It is going to be

:13:53.:13:58.

buried here, but its location is top secret, so if you don't mind...

:13:58.:14:03.

And while I hide that, Chris get on with putting in the finishing

:14:03.:14:09.

touches. This really is my favourite part. It has been a long,

:14:09.:14:15.

hard slog, probably the hardest I have ever had to build in my years.

:14:15.:14:19.

The garden in London lasted 40 years. Let's hope this one here

:14:19.:14:26.

lasts many more decades. And here it is in all of its glory. Blue

:14:26.:14:36.
:14:36.:14:42.

We have We are privileged to have a special guest to have us open it.

:14:42.:14:47.

Pleasure. This is the easy bit. Some of you have been working quite

:14:47.:14:57.
:14:57.:14:58.

hard. It is a pleasure. APPLAUSE

:14:58.:15:01.

You have got to put it somewhere in the garden. You are going to plant

:15:01.:15:04.

the tree which is a feature or will be once you have left. There are

:15:04.:15:08.

lots of features in the garden, the pond and the sun dial over there,

dog over there, Petra. As well as being here to open the

:15:18.:15:24.

Blue Peter Garden, Her Royal Highness is here to let us know

:15:24.:15:31.

about an environmental project. It is to do with the Queen's Golden

:15:31.:15:36.

Jubilee. Here is more information. Six million trees.

:15:36.:15:45.

60 diamond woods. It is all part of the jubilee woods project, the

:15:45.:15:51.

Woodland's Trust mission to plant six million trees. 60 diamond woods

:15:51.:15:57.

will be planted. It is a tradition that dates back to 1937, when

:15:57.:16:04.

hundreds of of thousands of people planted trees to mark the

:16:04.:16:09.

coronation of King George VI. Planting trees can stop flooding

:16:09.:16:13.

and create environments for wildlife and this year, people from

:16:13.:16:18.

all over the country are getting involved, helping to transform our

:16:18.:16:23.

landscape. Why do you hope that Blue Peter

:16:23.:16:27.

viewers will get involved in the project? As I think you have

:16:27.:16:32.

introduced the subject. There are a lot of school packs going on

:16:32.:16:37.

through the Jubilee Trust and we are looking forward to as many

:16:37.:16:40.

children as planting trees. It is about long-term planning. It is

:16:40.:16:45.

something they can grow up with. I am old enough enough to have seen

:16:45.:16:50.

trees planned as a crop grow up, be harvested and planted again, but it

:16:50.:16:53.

is nice to be able to see the changes that happen when you plant

:16:53.:16:58.

a tree and it marks, OK it marks a passage of time, but it reminds you

:16:58.:17:03.

of really special things. A long-term gain and a lot of

:17:03.:17:09.

enjoyment. Her Royal Highness is going to

:17:09.:17:14.

plant a silver birch. And which one of you is going to

:17:14.:17:22.

hold my handbag? This is tough soil. We always plant

:17:22.:17:26.

to a square hole because it encourages the roots.

:17:26.:17:36.
:17:36.:17:46.

Chris, you might have to watch your I knew I had to take the handbag,

:17:46.:17:49.

because if you took it, you would have gone like that, wouldn't you?

:17:49.:17:50.

No, I would never do anything like that.

:17:50.:17:53.

You can't do that to a princess. If you want to get involved by

:17:53.:17:56.

planting a tree at home, the details are on the the Blue Peter

stopping -- traffic stopping trainers. Sher Lloyd is in the

:18:08.:18:13.

studio to perform her latest single. Over the last weeks, you were into

:18:13.:18:17.

that, weren't you? I really was. You will be into the tune when she

:18:17.:18:22.

performs it. It is catchy. We have been asking you to send in your

:18:22.:18:24.

animal pictures. It is part of a Blue Peter competition.

:18:24.:18:32.

We have had January. That was the shot of the fruit beetle. For March

:18:32.:18:36.

we asked you to send your photos. So many entries came in.

:18:36.:18:40.

We had over 1,000 entries and you were part of the judging panel. I

:18:40.:18:44.

know you had a difficult job because there were great pictures,

:18:44.:18:50.

but what were you looking for? Original nationality, as your idea,

:18:51.:18:54.

composition and technical ability. I think the winner is the winner

:18:54.:18:58.

because it achieved all those things and it did it really well

:18:58.:19:04.

because it it makes you feel, the winner is Eve and she is 13 and

:19:04.:19:09.

this is the photo she took. APPLAUSE

:19:09.:19:12.

It just makes you smile, doesn't it? It tells a story and we love it.

If you want to print off the Blue Peter calendar, go to the website.

:19:17.:19:19.

There are important dates on the calendar.

:19:19.:19:23.

. Now, we like to give you the inside story on everything that you

:19:23.:19:33.
:19:33.:19:35.

are talking about and we know that Trainers, you can run in them,

:19:35.:19:39.

dance in them, jump in them, and the chances are you have got at

:19:39.:19:45.

least one pair in your wardrobe. With around 100 million pairs sold

:19:45.:19:49.

in the UK each year, they are fashionable footwear and the latest

:19:49.:19:55.

trend is about making them your own, like this, this and even this!

:19:55.:19:58.

Lots of the big brands now offer the chance to choose the colour,

:19:59.:20:03.

material, and text on your threads, but since unique style doesn't come

:20:03.:20:13.

cheap, we asked three fashionistas three ways to jazz up your pumps

:20:13.:20:17.

without breaking the bank. Michelle is the ideal person to

:20:17.:20:23.

give you tips. Her style is all about sticking on pics.

:20:23.:20:27.

Think of pictures or text that you like the look of. Print your

:20:27.:20:33.

pictures on a toner photocopier. This can be done easily at most

:20:33.:20:35.

print stores. To stick the pictures on, you will

:20:35.:20:42.

need a tube of image transfer cream. Simply paste the cream on top of

:20:42.:20:45.

the picture, also just brush it on the section of the trainer where

:20:45.:20:48.

the section of the trainer where you want to put your image.

:20:48.:20:52.

This picture is going to go face down on the trainer.

:20:52.:20:56.

Once you have stuck down as many images as you like, you need to let

:20:56.:20:59.

your trainer dry overnight. Once dry, rub a damp cloth over the

:20:59.:21:05.

images. You will start to see your images imaginically appear. Check

:21:05.:21:09.

that out! All you need to do is repeat the

:21:09.:21:13.

same process for the other pictures. Once yours is done, yours will

:21:13.:21:17.

probably look like this. It is cool, isn't it? You can step your style

:21:17.:21:21.

up a notch by adding text, pictures or beads to your laces.

:21:21.:21:30.

No one is going to have trainers Our next up and coming designer is

:21:30.:21:34.

a London College of Fashion graduate. Her trainer trend is

:21:34.:21:38.

about tagging your togs, you need to start by choosing a pattern.

:21:38.:21:48.
:21:48.:21:49.

Draw it on to CAD and cut it out. Place your your your stencil and

:21:50.:21:54.

using a pen, dot around it. Keep going with your shapes, until the

:21:54.:21:58.

trainer is covered. You can sketch any shape you like.

:21:58.:22:04.

Once you have finished, it is time to add your bling. Get a parent to

:22:04.:22:09.

help you glue on sparkically beads. Take a few in your fingers like so

:22:09.:22:13.

and very carefully just just drop them down on to the trainer.

:22:14.:22:22.

Now all that's left to do is to leave your dazzling shoe to say dry.

:22:22.:22:25.

-- shoes to dry. Hopefully, you should end up with

:22:25.:22:30.

something like this. Your third and final fashion guru

:22:30.:22:33.

is Tinchy Stryder. He loves trainers and he is ready to show

:22:33.:22:38.

you how to splat your style on your sneakers.

:22:38.:22:42.

Get a real colourful look and grab the attention of your friends. Take

:22:42.:22:48.

out the the lace. You have got a bit of tape and seal around. You

:22:48.:22:52.

don't want paint getting around. Once you have finished putting the

:22:52.:22:59.

tape, it should look like this. This is where you get creative.

:22:59.:23:02.

Tinchy's trainer art is about splatting fabric paint.

:23:02.:23:08.

It doesn't matter what it looks like. You can't go wrong. Get your

:23:08.:23:12.
