This book is amazing, it's got everything you want

:00:13.:00:14.

A spirited young redhead who will try her hand at anything.

:00:15.:00:20.

And a comic genius with timing like no other.

:00:21.:00:23.

Let's talk about this weekend. A very good event on in Birmingham

:00:24.:00:51.

called Awesome Authors. We'll be there meeting loads

:00:52.:00:53.

of your favourite authors and there will be tonnes

:00:54.:00:55.

of events and activities So, to get us all in the mood,

:00:56.:00:57.

today's Blue Peter is all about lovely, lively literature,

:00:58.:01:03.

perfectly poetic publications Coming up, I was given

:01:04.:01:05.

the opportunity to read out some of your legendary letters in front

:01:06.:01:15.

of an audience of hundreds We're meeting a young author

:01:16.:01:17.

with a unique story to tell. And later, I'll show you how you can

:01:18.:01:25.

make one of these ingenious book But first I got the go-ahead

:01:26.:01:29.

to gallivant with the guys at the glorious gathering of one

:01:30.:01:35.

of the greatest gag-filled shows David Walliams is one of the most

:01:36.:01:52.

popular authors in the country. His novel, Gangsta Granny, went straight

:01:53.:01:55.

to number one in the book charts, then became a hit TV show, and now

:01:56.:01:59.

it is a play. Which means that you will get the chance to see Gangsta

:02:00.:02:04.

Granny onstage across the UK, just like this theatre here in Reading.

:02:05.:02:11.

The show starts tomorrow. Tomorrow? Are they supposed to be ready

:02:12.:02:16.

tomorrow? No chance! Hard to believe, but the travelling theatre

:02:17.:02:19.

company at just 24 hours to transform this empty stage into the

:02:20.:02:24.

wonderful world of David Walliams' book. To transform an empty space in

:02:25.:02:29.

such a short period of time, it must be a real operation. What? That's

:02:30.:02:34.

why we are here. To reveal how the team do it! OK, I need to get my

:02:35.:02:41.

skates on. And next time, read my e-mails. Best get started. Deeney my

:02:42.:02:48.

instructions is Ashley, who plays granny's grandson, Ben. We have 27

:02:49.:02:54.

hours to get the show ready. How do you do it? We have a brilliant

:02:55.:02:57.

technical team who worked very hard to make sure the show was ready.

:02:58.:03:02.

Could I possibly see some of it? You can help out, if you like. Done. The

:03:03.:03:07.

lighting and sound equipment are the first to go in. It is really

:03:08.:03:10.

important to install them correctly because no matter how good the

:03:11.:03:14.

performance is, it is pointless if the audience cannot see it or hear

:03:15.:03:20.

it. In just a matter of hours, the team move on the set. This is work.

:03:21.:03:27.

We are hanging a big cloth at the back of the stage, a tenancy neck.

:03:28.:03:36.

The stages starting to come together and I am getting about actually

:03:37.:03:39.

seeing the show. But the director has a surprise for me. I'm not sure

:03:40.:03:45.

where I will be sitting but I am sure I will be in all. You want. --

:03:46.:03:52.

you will not. We need you backstage to be helping out with the props and

:03:53.:03:56.

scenery. You cannot rest. I thought this might happen. In fact, there is

:03:57.:04:03.

actually a part that we want you to play in the show. We have some lines

:04:04.:04:08.

for you. You are going to be a reporter in the show. Really?! Yes.

:04:09.:04:17.

Amazing. So as well as hanging out behind the scenes and helping out,

:04:18.:04:22.

I'm going to be performing in front of an audience onstage. It is the

:04:23.:04:25.

end of day one and the pressure is on. It is the next morning and I

:04:26.:04:29.

have got lots to do. I need to rehearse my very own part in the

:04:30.:04:33.

show before that, I need to get to grips with my other job as a

:04:34.:04:37.

stagehand. I need you to look after three props. One of them is this

:04:38.:04:42.

giant spoon. I need you to hand that to granny. Granny runs over to the

:04:43.:04:47.

rings and says, I was attacked by Bayer in the garden and I need you

:04:48.:04:50.

to throw this on and she will catch it. Near the end of act one, Alison

:04:51.:04:55.

runs off and I need you to hand this as quickly as possible. It is made

:04:56.:05:01.

from matches. Will it survive a drop? No. I need to make sure I get

:05:02.:05:06.

this right and practice perfect. Next job, I need to learn my lines.

:05:07.:05:12.

From the Tower of London, we're here at the scene of this audacious

:05:13.:05:17.

crime. And we're coming live from the Tower of London at the scene of

:05:18.:05:21.

an audacious crime. It is a huge honour to be given a role in the

:05:22.:05:25.

show. I just hope nerves don't get the better of me. And finally,

:05:26.:05:29.

rehearsals are over. In just 24 hours, I have helped to this theatre

:05:30.:05:33.

go from an empty stage to a full production. All that's left, for the

:05:34.:05:39.

audience to arrive. The stage is set. I have to get the lines in my

:05:40.:05:43.

head and make sure I do everything right. The cast is set. Wish us

:05:44.:05:49.

luck. It is laid down, and it is showtime. On the stage, everything

:05:50.:05:53.

is running smoothly but behind the scenes, it is cramped and a little

:05:54.:05:59.

bit frantic. Don't talk about granny like that! The TV doesn't work. All

:06:00.:06:07.

we do is replace the gravity. My bit is up! And the spoon and over is

:06:08.:06:15.

complete. -- handover. I was attacked by a Bayer! Time for the

:06:16.:06:21.

Bayer. A bit high. But at least I got the timing right. Don't drop the

:06:22.:06:29.

castle, Radzi, down to drop the castle! Thank goodness for that! Now

:06:30.:06:36.

it is time for my starring role. This is Blue Peter and we are alive

:06:37.:06:40.

in the Tower of London, at the scene of an audacious crime which is

:06:41.:06:46.

clearly been carried out by professional criminals. The question

:06:47.:06:50.

is, can you help us?! That was so exciting! All that is left to do is

:06:51.:06:58.

take a bow. My time with Gangsta Granny has been unforgettable but

:06:59.:07:00.

for the rest of the crew, they cannot stop here. They have got

:07:01.:07:04.

another town and another performance to get ready for. The show must go

:07:05.:07:12.

on. I had such a fun couple of days. Those guys are all so impressive.

:07:13.:07:16.

Something that always impresses us is how much post you send us from

:07:17.:07:20.

all four corners of the country but can you imagine what it is like to

:07:21.:07:25.

get post from all countries around the world? Well, one bluetit -- Blue

:07:26.:07:30.

Peter badge holder knows exactly what that is like. Please welcome

:07:31.:07:40.

Toby. Come on over. Welcome. Let's get one thing absolutely clear, you

:07:41.:07:45.

have sent a letter to every single country around the world and as a

:07:46.:07:49.

result, you have only got your own book! Look at that! That is

:07:50.:07:54.

ridiculous, and how old are you? I am eight years old. I started

:07:55.:08:02.

writing letters when I was five. That is amazing, and why did you

:08:03.:08:05.

start? What gave you the idea to start writing to different

:08:06.:08:09.

countries? I just wanted to make the world a better place. Good for you.

:08:10.:08:16.

Can we have a round of applause for that?! How many replies have you

:08:17.:08:23.

had? 375. That is a fool postbox. And you have had some replies from

:08:24.:08:29.

some amazing places. Mongolia, Nigeria, Fiji! It's amazing. And

:08:30.:08:33.

have you brought along some of your favourite replies? This one is

:08:34.:08:37.

amazing. It's from Hawaii, but still asked why it is so special? That is

:08:38.:08:43.

my first reply. And how did that feel, coming through the letterbox?

:08:44.:08:47.

I was really amazed that somebody would reply to my letter. And after

:08:48.:08:53.

that, I bet you thought, I want to do this more and more. And you have.

:08:54.:09:00.

This is a lovely one. We know it is from Iran, but what is that

:09:01.:09:08.

incredible creature? That is a Simorgh. I sent them a picture of a

:09:09.:09:12.

yeti and they send this back to me. You are exchanging mythical

:09:13.:09:19.

creatures! What a great idea. And now, talk us through these beautiful

:09:20.:09:22.

elephants. Why are they so important? I got those from Chad,

:09:23.:09:29.

from a national park. This elephant here is called Toby. So you casually

:09:30.:09:33.

got an elephant named after you? Why not?! We need to write to suit some

:09:34.:09:41.

more countries. I want an elephant. -- we need to write to some more

:09:42.:09:45.

countries. This is a very colourful drawing. Where is that from? That is

:09:46.:09:51.

from Eloise in New Zealand and it is an exploding rainbow. It is such a

:09:52.:09:55.

cool pile of memorabilia. How do you normally celebrate your day of

:09:56.:10:00.

birth? I go for a candle sometimes. But you took it further. Let's show

:10:01.:10:05.

the viewers what you got for your birthday. We bottled it out. Look at

:10:06.:10:11.

that! It says happy birthday, Toby. Tell us about this, where has it

:10:12.:10:18.

been? This is from Antarctica. It has also been held up. The South

:10:19.:10:26.

Pole! And you got a very special response from Blue Peter. Is that

:10:27.:10:30.

one of your favourites? You have to say that, didn't you? And you have

:10:31.:10:35.

got all your badgers. Let's look at your T-shirt. I am worried that it

:10:36.:10:39.

is going to slip down because it is very happy with all the badges. You

:10:40.:10:44.

have got so many! But you haven't got the Blue Peter sport badge,

:10:45.:10:50.

2016, yet? Are you going to try to earn that? Yes. I have loads of

:10:51.:10:54.

activities, so I might get one of those. What is your favourite sport?

:10:55.:11:01.

I like basketball and dodge ball. I am a big basketball fan myself. Get

:11:02.:11:06.

inspiring a friend and you will have the full collection. I don't have a

:11:07.:11:11.

gold badge. Because that, of course, is for outstanding achievement, for

:11:12.:11:17.

doing something very special indeed. And actually, Toby, we think that

:11:18.:11:19.

you have done something incredibly special, because you have mentioned

:11:20.:11:24.

it before, you are connecting the world with your letters, really

:11:25.:11:28.

inspiring people. And we would like Blue Peter viewers to do exactly the

:11:29.:11:32.

same thing. For that reason, we have something very special for you, the

:11:33.:11:35.

highest possible accolade we can give you, the gold badge. My

:11:36.:11:41.

goodness. Please, and massive round of applause for Toby. That is for

:11:42.:11:48.

you, my friend. Is that a good surprise? Yes. How does it feel to

:11:49.:11:55.

be holding a gold badge. Really amazing. Well done, you have

:11:56.:12:02.

inspired Radzi and everyone watching. Toby, everybody. Amazing.

:12:03.:12:09.

What a lovely moment. From letters on the big stage

:12:10.:12:11.

to letters on the Badge Wall. This is the Freemasons Hall in

:12:12.:12:23.

London and is today it will be home to some of the biggest stars from

:12:24.:12:26.

the world of film and books. But it is not for

:12:27.:12:32.

an awards ceremony, a contract or a film premiere. It is for these,

:12:33.:12:36.

letters. Inspired by the international bestselling book,

:12:37.:12:44.

Letters of Note, this project has seen the likes of Cally Minogue, Sir

:12:45.:12:47.

Ben Kingsley and Benedict Cumberbatch read letters written

:12:48.:12:51.

from all around the world. And today, they have been joined by

:12:52.:12:55.

letters from you, the Blue Peter viewers. Every year, we get letters

:12:56.:12:59.

from you and we love them so much that when we were asked to read some

:13:00.:13:02.

of them out at this amazing event, we jumped at the task -- jumped at

:13:03.:13:06.

the chance. You are probably wondering who is going to be reading

:13:07.:13:12.

out those letters? Sir Ian McKellen? No, and you might have noticed that

:13:13.:13:15.

I am looking a little nervous. And that is because in a few hours I

:13:16.:13:18.

will be standing on that stage reading out Blue Peter letters in

:13:19.:13:24.

front of a massive crowd including a list stars. No pressure (!) I better

:13:25.:13:29.

get practising! I wondered if I could earn two Blue Peter badge is.

:13:30.:13:35.

But in an age of text and e-mails, why are letters still so important?

:13:36.:13:39.

I met up with Shaun Marsh, whose love of letters was the inspiration

:13:40.:13:41.

for his book and this event. When you sit down to write a letter,

:13:42.:13:50.

you are different frame of mind to when you write an e-mail, or a text

:13:51.:13:54.

message and it uses a different part of your brain. What do you think

:13:55.:13:59.

makes a really brilliant letter? There are no rules. Any letter is

:14:00.:14:05.

great. Such a satisfying experience to physically write them and send

:14:06.:14:08.

and receive them. Sean's passion really shines through and it is

:14:09.:14:18.

shared with my fellow readers. It is important not to forget letters, a

:14:19.:14:22.

big part of my childhood. Something very secretive about the envelope,

:14:23.:14:27.

for you. It is good training for writing, actually. I used to write a

:14:28.:14:33.

lot of letters and I'm a writer. Stories and how to build them. Texts

:14:34.:14:40.

are great things but they are not necessarily there to stand the test

:14:41.:14:45.

of time. Any tips for me? I think that you'll be fine. I have sweaty

:14:46.:14:53.

hands! Just read! You'll be fine. As the auditorium fills up and I

:14:54.:14:57.

prepared for my performance, the nerves are really starting to kick

:14:58.:15:02.

in. First up, Caroline, who makes it look so easy. Please come back.

:15:03.:15:08.

APPLAUSE I'm going on straight after Gandalf

:15:09.:15:13.

himself, Sir Ian McKellen. Talk about big shoes to fill. Please

:15:14.:15:20.

welcome, Lindsay Russell. Can I do the Blue Peter letters justice?

:15:21.:15:25.

Well, there's only one way to find out. 4th of January, 2016. I

:15:26.:15:30.

wondered if I could earn two Blue Peter badges by sending in Mike

:15:31.:15:34.

Shelley the tour test toy I made with an old sock. -- my Shelley the

:15:35.:15:42.

tour test. Maybe I will write random words, like antithesis. --

:15:43.:15:47.

daughters. I think that's how you spell it. I love philosophical

:15:48.:16:01.

questions like this. Never mind, enjoy the tortoise, from Rachel,

:16:02.:16:04.

aged 13. APPLAUSE

:16:05.:16:12.

You know what, that was so, so fun. Actually, I'm a bit shaky. I went

:16:13.:16:17.

out, huge audience, really scary, but we did it, it's brilliant, loved

:16:18.:16:24.

it. Today has been so much fun and it's made me relies how much a

:16:25.:16:31.

letter can mean to someone. -- made me realise. When you want to say

:16:32.:16:35.

something to a friend or a family member who lives a long way away,

:16:36.:16:39.

put down your mobile phone, close your laptop and pick up one of

:16:40.:16:44.

these, they will not it. I was quite nervous but I got through it, thank

:16:45.:16:48.

goodness. From letters on the stage to letters on the Big Badge Wall. I

:16:49.:17:01.

want to thank you, Finley, for your picture. This is Finley, his Hamlet.

:17:02.:17:12.

Very nice. Benn from Warrington has sent this.

:17:13.:17:18.

"Lindsey ran the marathon, But Shelley couldn't manage one.

:17:19.:17:22.

Radzi raced a bike and won and Barney said I wanted one!"

:17:23.:17:26.

I want one. Write an cue. Bethany has written a poem and a T-shirt,

:17:27.:17:36.

which is a really good idea. -- right on cue. With the Blue Peter

:17:37.:17:42.

sign. "In one of their epic makes,

:17:43.:17:44.

they might show you how to bake cakes, or of course you could win,

:17:45.:17:47.

A dead-cool pin With the Blue Peter sign,

:17:48.:17:50.

it's even better than sunshine!" If you want to earn a bad, send it

:17:51.:17:57.

to the usual address. We haven't been playing Spot Shelley because

:17:58.:18:01.

Shelley has gone missing. Where has she gone? Fear not, she has left us

:18:02.:18:08.

a little letter. Yes, decipher the code in question, use your code

:18:09.:18:14.

cracking skills, go to the fan club and get more clues about where she

:18:15.:18:19.

is. Write it down and see if you are correct. I'm giving you this, the

:18:20.:18:23.

time of this show when I'm going to put on some white gloves. In keeping

:18:24.:18:28.

with the book team we have some special artefacts in the studio,

:18:29.:18:33.

from the friend of the show and gold badge holder, Michael Morpurgo. He

:18:34.:18:38.

wrote the incredible War Horse, which pretty much everybody loves.

:18:39.:18:43.

It was a book and moved on to be a play at the National Theatre and

:18:44.:18:47.

eventually it was the amazing film directed by Stephen Spielberg. You

:18:48.:18:52.

can see loads of artefacts we have been loaned by seven Stories, the

:18:53.:18:55.

National Centre for Children's Books in Newcastle, so we are very lucky

:18:56.:19:00.

to have them here. We have some of the promotional material from Nick

:19:01.:19:08.

Stafford's production of War Horse, we have the original programme and

:19:09.:19:11.

the UK premier programme of the film. As we move over here, we have

:19:12.:19:18.

Michael Morpurgo's actual script from War Horse. I'm getting close

:19:19.:19:22.

but I can't touch them directly because they have to be kept in very

:19:23.:19:26.

good condition for years to come so that other people can enjoy them.

:19:27.:19:29.

Something I can have a closer look at is down here, the first draft of

:19:30.:19:36.

War Horse. Michael has made his amazing notes, he has crossed bits

:19:37.:19:41.

out is and he used two notebooks. We have one of them here, the other one

:19:42.:19:45.

is at the exhibition for people do have a look at. The always used

:19:46.:19:50.

handwriting, with a pencil, crossing bits out, getting rid of bits. This

:19:51.:19:57.

is chapter 19 here. When he stopped using these notebooks: Michael would

:19:58.:20:01.

often move on to these, these orange notepads. You can see that there are

:20:02.:20:07.

many scribbles, numbers, because apparently Michael liked working

:20:08.:20:13.

towards a word count, so you can see he is working out how many words he

:20:14.:20:16.

has done and how many he needs to reach before he can have a cup of

:20:17.:20:22.

tea. Really cool to see that. Down here, the first typed draft of War

:20:23.:20:26.

Horse and you can see it is typed out but there are still lots of

:20:27.:20:30.

markings, adding bits and getting rid of bits he is unhappy with and

:20:31.:20:36.

it is even dated and the top. And in the Blue Peter studio, a treat,

:20:37.:20:41.

this, from 1982, a first edition of War Horse. Taking us back to 2009, I

:20:42.:20:48.

think I'm allowed to pick this one out, this is Michael Morpurgo's

:20:49.:20:52.

actual ticket to the War Horse film premiere. It is very cool to be

:20:53.:20:58.

holding it. It has been an honour to have some of these artefacts in the

:20:59.:21:01.

studio today and brilliant to think that when you are at home scribbling

:21:02.:21:08.

ideas, it could be just like Michael Morpurgo's ideas, ending up as a

:21:09.:21:12.

massive success. It shows, have a go at writing because you never know

:21:13.:21:16.

where it will get you. Now I'm going to take off my gloves.

:21:17.:21:24.

I'm going to show you how to make a bookmark. We have some bookmarks

:21:25.:21:32.

which are 3-D. Don't worry, nobody is chapter inside! You need to make

:21:33.:21:35.

some salt dough. We take the mixing bowl and the

:21:36.:21:52.

spoon. You put them all into the bowl and you add the water gradually

:21:53.:21:57.

otherwise it will end up in a big slump. You mix it for ages, so

:21:58.:22:07.

cancel your plans for the weekend! When you have done that, it will

:22:08.:22:11.

look like this. Ready-made dough, how lovely is that? The idea is that

:22:12.:22:19.

we must kneed it for a long time. I'm sure some bakers are wondering

:22:20.:22:23.

what I'm doing, but we aren't making a cake we are making all dough.

:22:24.:22:29.

Kneed as long as you can to make its move. Today we are making some

:22:30.:22:34.

pirate themed bookmarks, like Long John Silver from treasure Island.

:22:35.:22:39.

You need to make them stand up, and for that you need these things.

:22:40.:22:49.

You can also download this really handy template from the Blue Peter

:22:50.:22:55.

website. It gives you a guide to the size and also the designs if you're

:22:56.:23:01.

looking for inspiration. Also, a good tip is to leave them in a

:23:02.:23:04.

plastic wallet, so you can put things on top and it won't stick to

:23:05.:23:09.

the paper. So, take the lollipop sticks and dough and you make a ball

:23:10.:23:15.

on the bottom of the stick and you mould it into shape, using your

:23:16.:23:19.

hands to start off with. When you are doing this, think about the

:23:20.:23:22.

bottom of the dough because you need some to make the boot, so don't make

:23:23.:23:29.

it too in. Try and give yourself loads of dough at the end. -- too

:23:30.:23:38.

thin. To make it more wooden and angular, you can use pencils, pens

:23:39.:23:41.

and other things from around the house. Nothing too Charb because the

:23:42.:23:49.

dough is going to be soft. -- Sharp. This will give it a square edge.

:23:50.:23:55.

When you have done it it will look like this. You want to take some

:23:56.:24:00.

design elements, like the straps and the top of the boot and I had some

:24:01.:24:09.

extra salt. Put it in a strip. You can see it has angular edges. You

:24:10.:24:16.

can use it lengthways or the edge. I'm going to do this. So that is the

:24:17.:24:23.

rich for the laces. You can see that I have done the indent, which is

:24:24.:24:26.

where the buck always going to go. The gold buckle. -- the buckle is

:24:27.:24:35.

going to go. Once you are happy, you need to put them together to drive.

:24:36.:24:41.

This is the science bit. Because if they aren't dry, you can't paint

:24:42.:24:45.

them. You can leave them overnight or you can do a ten second blast in

:24:46.:24:50.

the microwave. Get somebody to help you with that if you aren't sure, or

:24:51.:24:55.

you can put them in the oven at 100 degrees, but keep checking them.

:24:56.:25:01.

When they have hardened, you can walk with them, they are ready for

:25:02.:25:04.

painting. I'm going to paint my boot back. Because pink would be weird!

:25:05.:25:13.

I'm just showing you how to do this quickly, you can take your time. I

:25:14.:25:19.

love painting boots because it looks like they are polished when they are

:25:20.:25:23.

wet will stop I'm going to do that bit black and we have a Pirate boot,

:25:24.:25:37.

it is going to have some gold on it. Pirates like old. I could do this

:25:38.:25:43.

for hours, but you will have more time than me. Let's go to the

:25:44.:25:50.

finished boot and wooden leg. How good do they look? You can spend

:25:51.:25:55.

ages doing what I would do, dances and choreography or you can turn

:25:56.:26:00.

into the finished bookmark which is where you need your card, which is a

:26:01.:26:04.

piece of a fort that has been cut in half. -- a piece of A4. You put this

:26:05.:26:14.

year and this here and you put a bit of tape over the top. This is where

:26:15.:26:19.

you realise whether you have the lollipop stick the right way. It has

:26:20.:26:24.

to go in horizontally because if it is the other way round, you can't

:26:25.:26:31.

close your book. You can decorate your card anyway you like. I'm going

:26:32.:26:37.

to go with the stick on pirate, and some double sided tape on one side,

:26:38.:26:42.

to make it easy to assemble it. You stick it together like that. And

:26:43.:26:48.

there you have it, the finished bookmark with a boot and a wooden

:26:49.:26:53.

leg and a pirate face. How good is that? I don't get a round of

:26:54.:26:55.

applause any more! APPLAUSE

:26:56.:27:00.

There are loads of different creations you can make by going

:27:01.:27:03.

online and downloading the templates. This is what they looked

:27:04.:27:08.

like when they are finished. It depends what you are reading, you

:27:09.:27:11.

might be finishing your favourite book which doesn't have these

:27:12.:27:15.

things. That's how you do it. What do you think? We love it! They would

:27:16.:27:22.

make any book look special. That is it for today because next weekend we

:27:23.:27:27.

have two more shows because it is the Blue Peter Awesome Authors

:27:28.:27:33.

spectacular. The likes of David Baddiel, Holly Smale will be there.

:27:34.:27:39.

If you want to go to the website and asked them a question, we will ask

:27:40.:27:44.

them as many as we can. And we will announce the dream big and petition.

:27:45.:27:51.

Just in time for the BFG Premier -- competition. Who knows what story

:27:52.:27:57.

you might end up with. In the meantime, go to the BP Fanclub and

:27:58.:28:01.

see a view can crack the code to find Shelley. See you soon!

:28:02.:28:04.
