You guys are going to start decorating. All will become apparent

this, and put glue in the middle, and stick it to the middle. You want


the gloopy Mac -- do you want to the glue? And you put the oblong in the


middle of the square. Next, you need to take a piece of card, and fold it


in half. And stick the waterfall section to the front. So put a bit


of glue there, and a little bit of glue there, and stick that down. If


you have done that right, the edges will be stuck down but the pieces in


the middle, you should be able to fold them through. So it goes up and

because we are celebrating 100 years of Bollywood films. We have some


guys here from the Punjab Academy to show us some moves. Before we try


some moves ourselves, they resort you need to know about Bollywood and


45 seconds. Bollywood is the place to be with blockbusters -- for


to be with blockbusters -- for blockbusters with the beat. 900


films were produced in 2012. The film are -- the films are in


Hinglish, a mixture of Hindi and English. This compares with just 400


films in Hollywood. Part-timers! The UK sells up to 1.6 billion cinema


tickets for Bollywood films every year, tiny compared to the 3 billion


sold in India. Ollie would films cover everything from action, drama,


love and laughs. What makes them different from your average


Hollywood movie is that they usually include several song and dance


routines of at least five minutes. And everyone loves a Bollywood


movie. I'd defy anybody to watch that and not join in. As you can


see, dancing is a massive part of the Bollywood movies, so Davinder is


here to save me from this madness. Let's talk about the Punjab Academy.


it is a creative arts service and creative Academy. We do DJ in,


different types of drumming, and bhangra dancing. Do you mind if we


dance how much has angry changed in 100 years? Lee Mack it has changed


dramatically, from the traditional days where it was classical, and it


used to be very feminine, but now we have lots of influences, belly


dancing, tango, right through to bhangra dancing. But people talk


about screwing the lightbulbs. I've heard it was to do with farming.


Think the lightbulbs came from when our parents came to the UK, screwing


lightbulbs. Where did it start?the land of Punjab, the farmlands. All


the activities to place on the farmlands, we converted that into


dance, celebrations. We have to join in. I can to help it!Come on in


anti-just some moves. What are we going start with? first and


foremost, bhangra, but you could call this screwing in the lightbulb.


Join in at home. It is more fun on your feet! I have so many friends


who Are watching this and they are use. Bottom left, bottom right. Top


left, top right. Got that? Yes. Think so. Two, three, four. I like


this! That is not easy.This is brilliant. You make it look


effortless! Thank you so much. I could do this all day. Thankfully,


you don't have to watch us doing much more. These guy also put on a


performance for us later on. I can't wait for that. It is time for you to


sit back. We have had the Diamond Jubilee, the Royal Wedding, but on


Tuesday the Queen marked another milestone. She celebrated 60 years


on the throne. We sent three Royal reporters to get the lowdown on the


is Callum. We are about to grab our seats for one of the biggest Royal


occasions of the year. We have had an exclusive invite to Westminster


Abbey. We are going to be finding out more about what goes into the


Coronation of a British monarch. a moment, she will enter the Abbey


love food. I'm finding out more about a special coronation dish.


Last year, CBBC helped me make over my local community centre. I am here


to discover how the Royal Throne has been restored. I love singing. So


I'm checking out what sort of music is played. A Coronation takes place


in this massive Abbey. Their subjects, their country, and the


Commonwealth... Music plays a huge part in the ceremony. I'm meeting


the man in charge of music, James O'Donnell. James directs the choir.


They sing at special occasions like a Coronation. James, why is music so


important in a Coronation? The music expresses the sense of occasion, and


the sense of history in a way that words alone can't do. Which song is


the most famous? The Coronation music that's probably the most


famous is This piece. Do you reckon I could have a go at singing?


would be fine, yeah. This is I Was Glad which was sung at the opening


of the Coronation. How about doing that on your own?


# Vivat... # That was excellent. Thank you.Every


party needs good food. I'm at a world famous school where Mary Berry


trained and the current Bake Off winner is back at school. This is a


place where a special recipe was created. It was just for the Queen's


Coronation. Saffron is meeting the culinary food director and he's


cooked for the Queen! What is the original recipe of coronation


chicken? It was made up of chicken, apricot puree, curried spices and


mayonnaise. Why don't we make it? Let's get on with it. We are


poaching a chicken. This recipe was about 60 years ago. Was it unusual


to have curry powder or curry flavouring then? Very much so. Which


is why the Spices used are relatively mild, so it is not too


strong. This was ahead of its time. Today you might eat this dish in


sandwiches or on a jacket potato. Originally, it was created for a


banquet for special guests of the Coronation. Has the recipe changed


nowadays? Absolutely. Now you will see it with raisins, apple. This is


the authentic, this is the original. Once cooked, we blend the curry


sauce with the mayonnaise and add the chicken. Leaving In the fridge


for an hour to chill. Finally, we plate it up. Coronation chicken as


it was done in 1953. I get to try it! That chicken is really lovely.


Where the sauce has marinated with it. We have a challenge here. Why


can't we update it? Why not? While Saffron is rustling up a new take on


an old dish, Aleem is finding more about the Coronation Chair. 26 kings


and Queens have been crowned. He is meeting a restorer. It is a pretty


old throne. Why did it need restoring? It Is a special throne.


It was made in 1300. Why is this throne so important? There is


something mystic about it. It is a powerful chair. That moment when


they become the King or the Queen, or the monarch of England, that


happens in this chair. What is all this writing? It is graffiti. It is


very old. Most of it was done in the 18th Century. Some of it was done by


schoolboys. Some of it was done by visitors. You know what? I have my


crown. Can I be King for a Day? sit on the throne? I don't think so.


I don't think the Queen would allow that. Nearly? Nice try! That seat is


reserved for royalty. Back in the kitchen, Saffron and Alan are


creating a new coronation chicken recipe. We are poaching chicken in


heat-safe clingfilm with lime leaves and spices and creating a lighter


sauce. That one tastes so nice. The chicken is really flavoursome. The


sauce has a really nice tang. Saffron has come back to the Abbey


so we can give our verdict on her dishes. Quite nice, this. I like the


sauce. Has a great texture. Want to try the next one? Yes. This one


tastes more modern. It looks as if it's been produced in one big


machine. Do you agree? It is nice. prefer the other one. It had more


texture. It tasted better. I liked the older one. It is more British. I


felt more at home eating it. The food was great. Thank you very much.


Aleem, I'm sorry you didn't get on the seat? Not really.I have brought


some stuff to get into the mood. Here is a seat. Right. You hold


that. You put this on. OK. We will have front row seats for the next


Coronation. At least we have some food to keep us going! It could be a


long time before the next one! least we are ready. Come on!


Congratulations on a brilliant film. E-mails - who would you invite to a


party and why? Oliver, I would invite my grand parents and have a


custard pie party. Sarah says I would throw a chocolate party


because chocolate is awesome. would have a In space and I would


have -- I would have a party in space and I would invite Paloma


Faith. Before we go any further, 400 million of you would choose One


Direction to be at your party. Vicky would go on Karaoke with Jessie J.

Walliams. Thank you for getting in touch. The sun doesn't have to be
