Good morning. It is ten o'clock. It is Sunday. We are joined live in

:00:07.:00:13.

the studio by a man who is not only funny, but has also grown enormous

:00:13.:00:18.

mutton chops for The Railway Children, Marcus Brigstocke. Also

:00:18.:00:26.

here, Andrea Corr. Standing in for Simon, Richard Corrigan will be

:00:27.:00:32.

taking charge in the kitchen. you very much. We are all here to

:00:32.:00:37.

do some cooking, gadgets and to take a look at next week's telly.

:00:37.:00:47.
:00:47.:00:55.

Good morning. Welcome to Something For The Weekend. It's been a weird

:00:55.:01:01.

weekend. A real weird weekend. massacre in Norway absolutely

:01:01.:01:05.

horrendous. I'm going on holiday in Norway soon. I have friends over

:01:05.:01:08.

there. They can't believe it's happened. Yesterday, Amy Winehouse

:01:08.:01:14.

died. A huge shock. I was a huge fan of Back To Black album. An

:01:14.:01:22.

amazing talent. Great singer, songwriter. Just so sad. Really sad.

:01:22.:01:31.

Really sad. 27. 15 million albums. Terrible. Simon is away this

:01:31.:01:36.

weekend. He's gone on his holidays to California. Yes. Having a fab

:01:36.:01:42.

time. We have a picture of him with his beautiful children. Ah! Do you

:01:42.:01:46.

think he's missing us? Of course he's not. I don't know what he is

:01:46.:01:52.

doing - he is driving down the coast, isn't he? He is. He is away

:01:52.:01:57.

for three weeks. Three weeks? Nearly. Standing in for him though

:01:57.:02:03.

we have Richard Corrigan. How you doing? Very well. What are you

:02:03.:02:06.

cooking - don't tell us because you will be doing that in a minute.

:02:06.:02:12.

What sort of food do you cook? Seasonal. Natural. Not a lot done

:02:12.:02:18.

to it is what I like to cook. We have come the full circle. I can do

:02:18.:02:23.

that! I might be able to do that! They are called sandwiches!

:02:23.:02:28.

LAUGHTER I'm good at that. whole journey over many, many years.

:02:28.:02:32.

We are back to nearly where we started only the food is better,

:02:32.:02:36.

better coming from the farms, better from the coasts. We are more

:02:36.:02:40.

aware of what good food is. We are more aware of what is endangered. I

:02:41.:02:47.

feel there is great food in Britain and Ireland. At this moment in time,

:02:47.:02:57.
:02:57.:02:57.

it is fantastic. It is not the only food we should look at. Never has

:02:57.:03:03.

there been a better time. Food is all about the ingredients? It is

:03:03.:03:07.

all about... Seasoning! Seasoning, that is one thing I have learnt.

:03:07.:03:16.

Very important. I cooked raywings yesterday. I have to pull you up on

:03:16.:03:23.

that. It is one of the fish we don't cook with because... Oh no!

:03:23.:03:28.

Don't give me a guilt complex! Before anyone writes in - now and

:03:28.:03:32.

then from a reputable fishmonger, everything is cool. Not something

:03:32.:03:37.

we should be encouraging people to be eating. Why? They are too

:03:37.:03:42.

popular. There's too many being eaten. We need to let the stocks

:03:42.:03:45.

replenish themselves. There's certain times of year... Richard,

:03:45.:03:52.

it is their fault for being so tasty! The more aware we are, the

:03:52.:03:57.

better we become. Yeah. At certain times of the year, ray is fine to

:03:57.:04:03.

eat. During breeding times, best to stay away. You have made me feel

:04:03.:04:08.

guilty. I love that. Can't believe you have made me feel really bad.

:04:08.:04:14.

I'm sorry if I am ruining the planet for you! Anyway, we have

:04:14.:04:19.

comedian - I was proud of myself for knocking it up! What?! You have

:04:20.:04:26.

been eating what?! It was beautiful. We have Marcus Brigstocke with us

:04:26.:04:30.

today. You will know him from his stand-up. You probably won't

:04:30.:04:37.

recognise him because he's grown a huge moustache to reprise Bernard

:04:37.:04:43.

Cribbins' role in The Railway Children. Andrea Corr and her

:04:44.:04:48.

siblings were never out of the UK's chart. Now she is back to talk

:04:48.:04:52.

about her brand-new album. If you have a question you want to ask

:04:52.:05:02.
:05:02.:05:03.

either of them, the best corrs of action is to go to

:05:03.:05:07.

bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend or you can tweet us at tweet @SFTW.

:05:07.:05:16.

What will you be cooking for us today, Richard? We will start with

:05:16.:05:20.

onion, marjoram and creme fraiche tart. Served with a nice salad.

:05:20.:05:27.

Then we will go on to the chocolate pots with hazelnuts and raspberries.

:05:27.:05:33.

You have to do the main course first! We will do spiced lamb with

:05:33.:05:43.
:05:43.:05:44.

chickpeas. Really a boys' dish cooked in one pan. I like the idea

:05:44.:05:49.

of that. Dessert which I am cooking with Andrea Corr? We are doing

:05:49.:05:53.

chocolate pots with hazelnuts and raspberries with mascarpone,

:05:53.:05:58.

raspberry and hazelnut. Really a dish you could get the whole family

:05:58.:06:05.

involved in. It is easy, but it's melting, mixing, baking. Can't go

:06:05.:06:15.
:06:15.:06:15.

wrong. OK. Finally? Finally, one of my favourites is Oysters

:06:15.:06:20.

Vietnamese-style, with crispy shallots and coriander. A great

:06:20.:06:28.

introduction to oysters. The oysters from Dorset, the east coast,

:06:28.:06:34.

they are fantastic. Louise might try one on the show? You are

:06:34.:06:43.

putting pressure on me! I might. I will see how they look. Do it!

:06:43.:06:49.

not very adventurous. Thanks, Richard. All of our recipes can be

:06:49.:06:50.

found on bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend.

:06:50.:06:57.

Here is what else is going on in the show today:

:06:57.:07:05.

It's far from sweetness and light in Sugartown. You can't but help

:07:05.:07:10.

hear rumours. There is military comedy from Gary: Tank Commander.

:07:10.:07:18.

It looks like a scotch egg. Life is just a numbers game in The Code.

:07:18.:07:28.
:07:28.:07:33.

Simon in the States but Wayne is in New Orleans having been nominated

:07:33.:07:38.

as best mentor in the barman's equivalent of the Oscars. How has

:07:38.:07:45.

he done? He lost! Oh! He lost and he's got mad and he is smashing the

:07:45.:07:49.

place up. Is he? Are they going to chuck him out? They have chucked

:07:49.:07:55.

him out! Get out! He is still a winner for us. He is. He makes

:07:55.:08:01.

delicious cocktails. He is not here today. Who is doing it? We have

:08:01.:08:11.

Tristan Stephenson doing it. Are we going to be drinking that?! He is a

:08:11.:08:14.

molecular cocktail barman. That will be great for Hallowe'en, a

:08:14.:08:19.

drink like that. Yeah. We are going to be drinking something like that

:08:19.:08:26.

later. Richard Corrigan is here. Before you start - tell us how it

:08:26.:08:29.

began? How did you get into cooking? It started when I was 15.

:08:29.:08:35.

I was a farmer's son. The elder brother gets the farm. The wrong

:08:35.:08:45.
:08:45.:08:45.

guy got it! LAUGHTER I had to find a career for myself. It was a bit

:08:45.:08:50.

of dairy, vegetables, market garden. Coming from the land going into

:08:50.:08:54.

food and I'm going back to the land because I intend to start my own

:08:54.:08:59.

market garden soon. Really? Absolutely. It gives you a great

:08:59.:09:05.

understanding for ingredients. We must push on with this recipe.

:09:05.:09:10.

Tell us what we are making? We are doing the onion, marjoram and creme

:09:10.:09:15.

fraiche tart. Run through the ingredients. I will show you how to

:09:15.:09:18.

roll out the pastry and bake it blind. More importantly, that is

:09:19.:09:24.

the salad. These are the melted onions which we have cooked down, a

:09:24.:09:31.

bit of butter and olive oil. The cheese from Switzerland. I like

:09:31.:09:39.

this cheese. Marjoram. What is this? Marjoram, which is delicious

:09:39.:09:45.

with onions. It is delicious. You have to warm it, put it into the

:09:45.:09:50.

warm onions to get the best out of it. We have a spring onion dressing,

:09:50.:09:55.

a bit of vinegar, oil and spring onions we will cut really thinly.

:09:55.:10:01.

What you could do, you could mix the eggs with the creme fraiche.

:10:01.:10:08.

Me? Oh, oh, what are you smiling at? What am I doing, the eggs?

:10:08.:10:14.

You could cut a small bit of cheese. You are not there to watch, Mr

:10:14.:10:18.

Lovejoy! I will cut that for you. You can taste a piece of that as

:10:18.:10:26.

well. Am I doing all these eggs? Yeah. How long does it take to get

:10:26.:10:35.

the onions... Am I grating into the bowl? Sorry. I'm an impatient cook.

:10:35.:10:42.

How long do you have to let the onions caramelise? It means you are

:10:42.:10:47.

browning them too quickly so they release far too much sugar. Melting

:10:47.:10:51.

them down until they become soft is what we are looking for. We don't

:10:51.:11:01.
:11:01.:11:01.

want the onions to taste charred. OK. Where are your restaurants?

:11:01.:11:05.

Bentley's Seafood Restaurant in Piccadilly. We have Corrigan's in

:11:05.:11:12.

Mayfair. This is great. It is clingfilm. There is another use for

:11:12.:11:16.

clingfilm - your beans - you put that into the fridge for 20 minutes.

:11:16.:11:21.

You take it out. You cook it - sorry, put it in the fridge for 20

:11:21.:11:26.

minutes. You take it and you cook it for 15 minutes. Remove the beans,

:11:26.:11:30.

brush it with egg yolk and put it back in for ten seconds. That forms

:11:30.:11:36.

a seal on the pastry. Can I check, do I put this all in? Yeah, yeah.

:11:36.:11:41.

Go for it! The whole thing? This is a recipe for a two-tart mix! You

:11:41.:11:47.

can make one tart, freeze down the other mixture and use it again.

:11:47.:11:53.

whisking this? Yes. Put in there a bit of pepper-and-salt. A pinch?

:11:53.:11:59.

Yeah. Breaking up that salt a little bit to get it... A bit more?

:11:59.:12:05.

Yes, lovely. Good. Did you train somewhere or did you train on the

:12:05.:12:09.

job? No, I trained on the job. I started in a local hotel. I worked

:12:09.:12:15.

with some fabulous people in my time. You can put that in there.

:12:15.:12:24.

All of it? Yes. I will pop an egg out any minute here! The marjoram,

:12:24.:12:32.

I will pinch a bit myself. You don't need the stalk. Marjoram is

:12:32.:12:40.

one of the great things. Marjoram and onions - beautiful. Oh God!

:12:40.:12:46.

How you getting on there? taking a while. I'm doing all right.

:12:46.:12:51.

I'm an expert now. Are you? Yeah, really good now. I have been on

:12:51.:12:58.

this job for ages. Don't bang it. It is a glass bowl. You are telling

:12:58.:13:03.

me off today! It's... Am I mixing this? Everyone does it. If it chips,

:13:04.:13:08.

a bit of the glass will go into the bowl and you have a problem. That's

:13:08.:13:14.

done. See! Are you learning? That could be dangerous. Telling him off

:13:14.:13:19.

on the first recipe, not a good idea. Simon doesn't bully me!

:13:19.:13:27.

LAUGHTER I'm loving it. We are finished with that. Fine. It's

:13:27.:13:31.

little common - doing things so many times, it becomes second

:13:31.:13:38.

nature. Let it go, I know! I know what I'm doing now! LAUGHTER God!

:13:38.:13:47.

Mix that up. Do you have a high turnover of staff?! A week?!

:13:47.:13:51.

you a good boss? Do you shout? Are you a calm man? I would feel that

:13:51.:13:55.

after so many years doing what I am doing, I'm a passionate individual

:13:55.:13:59.

and I think there is no room for being a nasty individual in the

:13:59.:14:02.

kitchen. There is nothing better than going around to everyone at

:14:02.:14:08.

the end of service saying, "Thank you for working with me." "But

:14:08.:14:18.
:14:18.:14:18.

don't mess up!" Do you say, "Get it to the pass ?" That is a two-tart

:14:18.:14:25.

mix. What do you mean? We can make two tarts with it. Even I know

:14:25.:14:31.

that! Why don't we make a one-tart mix? We are making two tarts.

:14:31.:14:37.

is the other tart? We will make it after. We need a lunch later!

:14:37.:14:40.

not opening up a commercial restaurant. I only want to make one

:14:40.:14:50.
:14:50.:14:50.

tart! LAUGHTER A bit of garnish on the top. Don't worry about it

:14:51.:14:55.

spilling over. It doesn't matter. It really doesn't matter. OK.

:14:55.:15:05.
:15:05.:15:19.

minutes on 180. In a small bowl, you can take a little bit of the

:15:19.:15:24.

olive oil, three parts olive oil, one part vinegar. That is a nice,

:15:24.:15:34.
:15:34.:15:35.

simple... You are panicking. Three spoonfuls, that is of the oil, and

:15:35.:15:43.

one of the vinegar. Lovely. And some salt. He wants me to mess up!

:15:43.:15:53.

I like the fact you are being challenged. Is this going well?

:15:53.:15:58.

Fantastic. We are going to take the tart off the tray. Would you like

:15:58.:16:08.
:16:08.:16:20.

Normally we talk! No talking about issues or holidays today! You want

:16:20.:16:24.

some fun in the kitchen, but you want to produce good food as well.

:16:24.:16:31.

I think that is where I go wrong! What I have done, I have just cut

:16:31.:16:36.

around the pastry in case it shrinks down. But I love the pastry,

:16:36.:16:41.

I would finish that for my dinner. That looks great, you can put that

:16:41.:16:49.

straight in there. That is quite a lot. You have ruined my source!

:16:49.:16:56.

Just to dress the top of the leaves with that. What have you done?! You

:16:56.:17:03.

have put a load of onions in there! It is supposed to have onions.

:17:03.:17:12.

that many! It is just meant to be a few. No, it is not!

:17:12.:17:20.

That is the tart. The great thing about something like this, a tart,

:17:20.:17:30.
:17:30.:17:33.

is... This smells really good. love the tart. That is a main

:17:33.:17:40.

course, that is not a starter. That is a great lunch, early supper,

:17:40.:17:46.

whatever. Onions, marjoram, cheese... That is delicious. That

:17:46.:17:52.

is the starter, what are we making for the main? Spiced leg of lamb,

:17:53.:17:57.

with chickpeas and roast peppers, a little bit of garlic. This is

:17:57.:18:02.

really good. All the recipes can be found on our website. This is

:18:02.:18:08.

found on our website. This is really good, Richard Ford stop this

:18:28.:18:36.

notice. Lilies, that does not bode! They look very thirsty. Go on,

:18:36.:18:45.

Michael, I have readied the buckets. I hope Jason knows what he is doing.

:18:45.:18:51.

You know I am not one for tattle, but regarding that boy, a word on

:18:51.:18:56.

the street is rife. That incident with the Swedish Tourist... Nobody

:18:56.:19:01.

knows what happened in the aquarium. You can't help but hear rumours.

:19:01.:19:05.

I think we are in a state of readiness, we might as well get the

:19:05.:19:11.

staff back on the floor. They are enjoying themselves, let them be.

:19:11.:19:15.

You are obviously planning a musical -- miracle I do not know

:19:15.:19:25.
:19:25.:19:29.

about. I do the books, Jason. He ditched us. What? Why? As good

:19:29.:19:38.

as. The other people were cheaper, faster, whatever. They were away

:19:38.:19:44.

last big clients. Did you talk to them, haggle? No, I'd just rolled

:19:44.:19:51.

over. Sarcastic mate is not a good look! I will pitch in. I will sort

:19:51.:20:01.

That programme will start to rock tonight at 10:35pm on BBC One and

:20:01.:20:07.

BBC One HD. Our first guest was the most successful Irish export, along

:20:07.:20:15.

with her brother and sister, since you two.

:20:15.:20:23.

# What can I do to make you love # What can I do to make you care?

:20:24.:20:31.

# We are so young, so young now. # Go on, go on.

:20:31.:20:39.

# Leave me breathless. # So I listen to the Radio.

:20:39.:20:46.

# And all the songs we used to No. # I would run away.

:20:46.:20:53.

# I would run away with you. Such great memories. I could sing

:20:54.:21:00.

every one of those songs and know all the words. Go on! But they are

:21:00.:21:05.

incredibly vivid, everybody is so familiar. Welcome to Something for

:21:05.:21:09.

the Weekend, Andrea Corr. What does it feel like looking back? You were

:21:09.:21:15.

so huge. Yes. It is quite surreal, to be honest, it was quite a long

:21:15.:21:24.

time ago, some of them. Runaway was our first video one single. Do you

:21:24.:21:31.

have good memories? Very good memories. You got to meet everyone

:21:31.:21:36.

at the time, you were so huge. We have a picture of the with Nelson

:21:36.:21:46.

Mandela. The Pope. Pavarotti. You were with everybody at the time.

:21:46.:21:51.

And now you don't, does it feel weird that that time existed?

:21:51.:21:59.

The longer ago it is, it is a bit more, God, is that us? It is quite

:21:59.:22:04.

surreal. But it was great. It was quite a natural transition, you had

:22:04.:22:09.

been singing together, toured with your parents, so singing with the

:22:09.:22:13.

family, I suppose hitting the big time was a natural progression? I

:22:13.:22:18.

suppose now you must look back and realise how successful The Corrs

:22:18.:22:24.

worth. When you were in it, you are swept up? Our household was quite

:22:24.:22:29.

strange. Because our parents were musicians, it was the most and

:22:29.:22:32.

music. It was almost like an inevitability that we would get

:22:32.:22:36.

together and form a band and, to be honest, I think we were blindly

:22:36.:22:45.

confident about it. Our dad would say, nearly every year, 1995, The

:22:45.:22:50.

Corrs will rule the world. That did not work out, 1996, he would keep

:22:50.:22:56.

on going. It is mad. When was and how was the decision to break up

:22:56.:23:01.

The Corrs, as they were? I know you did not break-up, but to stop

:23:01.:23:06.

writing and performing? It was just apparent, people had families, it

:23:06.:23:12.

was time to cast an eye on our personal lives. Caroline was having

:23:12.:23:18.

her second baby, and she toured while pregnant with both children.

:23:18.:23:24.

Sharon has children, Jim has a child. It felt like that was... We

:23:24.:23:30.

should do that. Will you be getting back together at some stage to tour

:23:30.:23:38.

or do music? We might do. We shared the passion. I think what we did

:23:38.:23:42.

together was great. Maybe we will once we are all enthusiastic about

:23:42.:23:47.

it. How are you finding being out there on your own this time? Are

:23:47.:23:52.

you missing the family, or is it a new and enjoyable experience?

:23:52.:23:56.

miss them, but this is my second solo record, it was more daunting

:23:56.:24:04.

the first time. I could just stay quiet back then, but now there

:24:04.:24:09.

would be silence if I did. I have seen a couple of interviews with

:24:09.:24:12.

you in between your first solo album and this one, you found out

:24:12.:24:18.

of love with music a bit? Just from doing it all the time, I kind of...

:24:18.:24:23.

I realised I would look at my friends and see them with iPods and

:24:23.:24:28.

listening to music and I just thought, I am not doing that.

:24:28.:24:32.

Before we were ever in the band, I listened all the time, I would get

:24:32.:24:37.

a quick song in before I got to school in the morning. It was a lie

:24:37.:24:43.

opener in a way, going, I have kind of loss that innocent love of it. I

:24:43.:24:49.

think until I find that again I will not do it. I took a break.

:24:49.:24:55.

took a year out to learn French? I can't speak French, I won't

:24:55.:25:02.

understand a word! I just wanted to do... It was not a year out to to

:25:02.:25:05.

specifically learn French, I just wanted to live a normal life and be

:25:05.:25:14.

a regular girl. And I wanted to use my brain. Why French? I think it is

:25:14.:25:22.

a beautiful language. Do you use it now? Yeah, if I go to France!

:25:22.:25:29.

you have to keep on going to France! Going back to the music...

:25:29.:25:35.

I want to talk about speaking French! When cooking, you will see

:25:35.:25:40.

later. The music industry has changed so

:25:40.:25:44.

much since you were in The Corrs, and I'm sure even since the first

:25:44.:25:49.

solo album. There is so much competition out there now because

:25:49.:25:53.

of iTunes and the internet and everything, does that slightly

:25:53.:25:58.

scare you? You know when you have had so much success, you want to

:25:58.:26:05.

keep going in the same vein? To be honest, I am only really motivated

:26:05.:26:10.

by the music and my love of that. I amazing and I write, that is what I

:26:10.:26:18.

am going to do. My impetus is not to remain top of the charts,

:26:18.:26:23.

although it is nice if people love your music, but it is about making

:26:23.:26:27.

records I am really happy with. And fulfilling myself and what I am

:26:27.:26:33.

supposed to be doing. Your new album is an album of covers, have

:26:33.:26:37.

you chosen them because you enjoy listening to them or singing them?

:26:37.:26:40.

When I said earlier about listening to music all the time when I was

:26:41.:26:45.

younger, making this record reignited the passion that I had

:26:45.:26:50.

had. Really, the concept behind it was... You know the way that music

:26:50.:26:55.

is unique and it let you revisit almost vividly what you were going

:26:55.:26:59.

through when you used to listen to a certain song, when you put it

:26:59.:27:03.

back on again you remember that, broken-hearted, falling in love.

:27:03.:27:11.

They have all been pivotal moments in my life, either anecdotally and

:27:11.:27:15.

emotionally or just musically. But they have all had a big impact on

:27:15.:27:25.
:27:25.:27:54.

# The state of independence shall # The state of independence shall

:27:54.:28:02.

That is the new single, Lifelines, the album, is out now. Are some

:28:02.:28:08.

songs nicer to sing than others? I don't like singing, it is hard

:28:09.:28:17.

work! I would not put a sum on the album of that was the way. -- I

:28:17.:28:22.

would not put a song on the album if that was the wave. I was always

:28:22.:28:27.

used to singing songs that I or the family had written. From being in a

:28:27.:28:30.

successful band or whatever, you realise when you are singing it you

:28:30.:28:34.

are almost trying to prove to a record company that this is a hit.

:28:34.:28:42.

It is really quite strange. Where is making this record was just

:28:42.:28:47.

luxurious in that I did not have any of that pressure. They are all

:28:47.:28:53.

hits! Did you consciously make sure it still sounded like you, not just

:28:53.:28:57.

vocally but the actual sound of the track had something that was in the

:28:57.:29:04.

style of what you had done in the past? Not particularly. I think my

:29:04.:29:09.

voice will always sound like me. That is what will combine it all,

:29:09.:29:16.

or whatever. But I think that, you know, when it comes to songs, my

:29:16.:29:20.

focus, singing wise, and the producer, John Reynolds, I think is

:29:20.:29:25.

of the same mind, it is very much about the story. So everything you

:29:25.:29:29.

do is further emphasising the story and whatever you are trying to say

:29:29.:29:33.

within it. Andrea, you will do some cooking

:29:33.:29:39.

with me later, knocking up some pudding. Yes. If you have any

:29:39.:29:43.

questions for her all for Marcus Brigstocke, tweet us. Or you can e-

:29:43.:29:51.

mail them via our website. Are you good with dates? Cooking

Buckingham Palace has been opened to the public. More than 4,000

:30:24.:30:27.

people queued throughout the day to see the State Rooms where the Queen

:30:27.:30:31.

has received scores of world leaders and where many of her

:30:31.:30:36.

priceless works of art are displayed. Bill Clinton has arrived

All That We Want Is A Little Baby - it was the year Pammy strutted her

:31:49.:31:57.

stuff in Baywatch! I don't think I have watched an episode! You are

:31:57.:32:04.

joking! I have watched BITS of it. The good BITS of the BIKINI.

:32:04.:32:08.

don't think I ever watched it. I don't think it was something - was

:32:08.:32:13.

it good? It was great. Was it? liked it. Did you? Did you watch it

:32:13.:32:19.

every week? If I was indoors, yeah. I might have been out, or something.

:32:19.:32:25.

It was on early Saturdays. Football I suppose. Playing or coming back.

:32:25.:32:35.
:32:35.:32:41.

What year was that? '90 something? '90s? '95? That is late. I'm going

:32:41.:32:50.

'92/'93. Can I have two? '93. will go '95. Good. Simon's absent.

:32:50.:32:55.

Let's look at some of the best photos and what you were cooking

:32:55.:33:03.

last week. There are the lamb burgers. They said, "They were very

:33:03.:33:10.

easy to make." He looks happy. Claire made marmalade cake. She

:33:10.:33:14.

enjoyed eating it with her boyfriend last Sunday. Do you

:33:14.:33:21.

reckon they ate the whole thing? think so! Phil made the seared tuna

:33:21.:33:31.

with mango sauce. He is wearing his new super man apron. It is just

:33:31.:33:39.

what all men wapbt(!) Your kids get you that. That is the kind of

:33:39.:33:44.

present kids buy. We want to see more photos of you making our

:33:44.:33:50.

recipes, so cook a dish, take a shot and send it to us via

:33:50.:33:54.

bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend. Or tweet it to us at tweet @SFTW.

:33:54.:34:00.

am sure everyone will be making a main course, Richard. What are we

:34:01.:34:04.

main course, Richard. What are we going to make? Simon is on his

:34:04.:34:09.

holidays in California. Richard Corrigan has stood in today. He is

:34:09.:34:14.

watching the show on the internet. Is he? I bet he is! Not a chance!

:34:14.:34:22.

He will be impressed with me this morning. Spiced leg of lamb. You

:34:22.:34:27.

buy the whole leg of lamb and you say, "Please Mr Butcher can you cut

:34:27.:34:34.

it into 12 pieces?" A spiced leg of lamb. We have the lamb, the cumin,

:34:34.:34:39.

chilli, garlic, coriander and cumin seeds. We have pre-roasted peppers

:34:39.:34:44.

and the chickpeas. I need to get this on. I have cooked some garlic

:34:44.:34:49.

here for ten minutes in some olive oil. This dish needs lots of olive

:34:49.:34:56.

oil. You have cooked the olive oil with garlic. I will use the garlic

:34:57.:35:04.

in the end. All right, all right! Don't get busy, Tim. Sorry. I have

:35:04.:35:08.

more responsibility today. I have been given something else to do.

:35:08.:35:12.

When you are putting something on a pan, always away from you, so it

:35:12.:35:17.

doesn't splash back on you. have put all these herbs on there?

:35:17.:35:21.

Yes. Just the cumin, butter, pepper-and-salt. That is what is on

:35:21.:35:25.

there. We need to cook this in eight minutes. What I would like

:35:25.:35:30.

you to do is cut the peppers into nice big pieces, not little thin

:35:30.:35:36.

pieces. What I would like from Louise, some coriander. Cut into

:35:36.:35:41.

rough-sized pieces without the stalks. Do you want me to peel

:35:41.:35:49.

these? Please. OK. Do you invent lots of different recipes? Invent?

:35:49.:35:53.

I like cooking with ingredients that are in season, that come my

:35:53.:36:00.

way. Go on, sorry... You put dishes together, a combination of simple

:36:01.:36:05.

ingredients, hopefully grown in a harmonious environment, working

:36:05.:36:12.

with nature, and you end up - you down at the table and eating.

:36:12.:36:16.

many recipes do you have in your head? It doesn't work like that for

:36:16.:36:20.

you? No, it doesn't. What is in the fridge, I like doing the family - I

:36:20.:36:24.

check the fridge out, if my wife is watching, they call it the fridge

:36:24.:36:29.

clearance, which is bits of everything unused and what I have

:36:29.:36:33.

done here is the coriander and the fennel seeds, I have put into a

:36:33.:36:38.

warm pan. Smell them. Oh, lovely. Am I putting the coriander in

:36:38.:36:42.

there? No, you are going to keep that separate. Is that enough, do

:36:42.:36:47.

you think? A little bit more. more, OK. I can do that. Do you

:36:47.:36:52.

cook at home? Or does your wife cook at home? I cook at home when

:36:52.:36:55.

there are large amounts of people coming to dine, but otherwise my

:36:55.:37:00.

wife cooks and she cooks really well and simply. After being in the

:37:00.:37:05.

kitchen a lot, there is nothing like a really nice toasted sandwich,

:37:05.:37:10.

you know what I mean? When you get home from work, the last thing I am

:37:10.:37:16.

sure you want to do is cook. cook. You are doing well. Can I -

:37:16.:37:20.

and I don't mean to patronise you - you put the yoghurt into the bowl

:37:20.:37:25.

with a bit of that ground cumin beside you and... You have to tell

:37:25.:37:30.

me what to do! When you go out for dinner, where would you choose to

:37:30.:37:39.

go? I like - there is a restaurant underneath you here and it is Cafe

:37:39.:37:49.

Anglais. It is great to know the chef. That's fine. It smells

:37:49.:37:54.

LOVELY! You put all the cumin in, did you? Yeah, fine. A squeeze of

:37:54.:38:00.

lemon. Lovely. Should I not have put the cumin in? For you, it

:38:00.:38:04.

doesn't matter! LAUGHTER You have ruined the dish! You have made a

:38:04.:38:10.

mistake. What we say in the kitchen, you can always add more! LAUGHTER

:38:10.:38:19.

By the way... I'm sorry. You could say two-and-a-half minutes both

:38:19.:38:25.

sides, but the great thing - they look good. This is going to be fab.

:38:25.:38:30.

The chickpeas go in. Right. I will take the peppers you have cut.

:38:30.:38:35.

do we want the lamb? Rare inside? Pink. I will put in the garlic and

:38:35.:38:45.

the chilli. I've got the ruined cumin stuff. You have got a lot of

:38:45.:38:55.
:38:55.:38:55.

cumin stuff going on there! It is fine. Lots of olive oil. Looks like

:38:55.:39:02.

a healthy cake! A squeeze of lemon in there as well. If there is

:39:02.:39:08.

anything left over, apart from the meat, the chickpea, the peppers,

:39:08.:39:13.

put into a liquidiser, add more olive oil into it and you have a

:39:13.:39:17.

great little dip. You can eat these cold. You were telling me before

:39:17.:39:22.

the show you have changed the style of cooking you have done. You went

:39:22.:39:27.

from wholesome, to fancy... Do I do this? Yeah. I will take some of

:39:27.:39:33.

that off you. You start off as a trainee and you want to learn from

:39:33.:39:39.

the masters. Yeah. Then you learn your craft and then you become a

:39:39.:39:44.

master craftsman - I'm serious about that. You become very

:39:44.:39:48.

passionate about and you look after everything. Yeah. Coriander in

:39:48.:39:58.
:39:58.:39:58.

there. And then you really look what you like to eat. I'm going to

:39:58.:40:03.

take this off the heat. You could call this a lamb stir-fry. You

:40:03.:40:09.

leave it there and after that you realise what you want to eat

:40:09.:40:19.
:40:19.:40:19.

yourself - that's fine, Louise. Really good. Not that good?! Done.

:40:19.:40:23.

Then you realise what you like to eat and drink. Then you start

:40:23.:40:28.

taking all the nonsense out of everything you have learnt. Buying

:40:28.:40:34.

less, eating, you know... In my case, not a bit too much, possibly!

:40:34.:40:39.

Really, I mean, I'm coming to that age, you know. I need to stop

:40:39.:40:48.

enjoying myself. You see that now, that is cooking away. Heat off.

:40:48.:40:55.

pan! You could go out to the pub for your Sunday pint and come back

:40:55.:40:58.

and eat that warm. Whatever wine you are going to pull out, a nice

:40:58.:41:04.

red or something, you know you are going to like it. It smells lovely.

:41:04.:41:09.

By the way, it's probably cost around �4.50 a portion. That is

:41:09.:41:18.

maximum. OK. Cool. We are going to put the - it would be nice with a

:41:18.:41:22.

bit more time to rest this for ten more minutes. Always rest your

:41:23.:41:32.
:41:33.:41:33.

meat! We can't do that on telly. Smells nice. Smells amazing. You do

:41:33.:41:39.

like your food, I know that. I do. I was like lured over by the smell.

:41:39.:41:44.

That over it. Can you please - hold on, we have not finished yet.

:41:44.:41:49.

are not going to waste anything. will be smelling good this

:41:59.:42:04.

pudding with you, Richard. What are you doing? We are doing chocolate

:42:04.:42:12.

Welcome, Marcus Brigstocke. Well done for finding a clip you could

:45:21.:45:27.

use! Let's go back to your standard, will you be doing more? Is that

:45:27.:45:33.

your first love? -- let's go back to your stand up. I think of myself

:45:33.:45:38.

as a comedian. As soon as the Railway children finishers, I am

:45:38.:45:46.

germinating a load of ideas at the moment for a show, it will be my

:45:46.:45:51.

alternative vision of how we might build a society. That is an

:45:51.:45:56.

interesting point. Before the show, you are so bright, how did you get

:45:56.:46:02.

into stand-up? That is an elaborate trick, I am not that bright. I just

:46:02.:46:07.

wear glasses! Why did you going to stand up? Without being rude, why

:46:07.:46:12.

not a politician, or in business? could not be a politician because I

:46:12.:46:18.

have done some things. I have done some things... I have, that would

:46:18.:46:22.

make it impossible because of the nature of the relationship between

:46:22.:46:27.

the press and politics. It would be impossible. They would all be held

:46:27.:46:31.

against me and used constantly. press is changing dramatically this

:46:31.:46:38.

week. We will see what is left of the press. But to be honest, it was

:46:38.:46:43.

comedy that drew me towards having any sort of political view anyway.

:46:43.:46:46.

I was and a political comedian for a long time, then when the build-up

:46:46.:46:50.

to the Iraq war happened, I found myself at odds with a lot of

:46:50.:46:55.

people's views on that. And talking about it on stage, feeling like I

:46:55.:47:00.

needed to, and once you are in, politically, in terms of social

:47:00.:47:04.

politics, you can't stop, because you start reading, then the more

:47:04.:47:09.

you read the more you want to. do you sometimes think, why have I

:47:09.:47:13.

opened this can of worms? I follow you on Twitter, talking about your

:47:13.:47:19.

religion. You had got colour, which was all about religion, your show,

:47:19.:47:26.

you have put it into a book -- you had God COLLAR. It is frustrating,

:47:26.:47:32.

people want to argue with you. You have opened a can of worms. Surely

:47:32.:47:37.

that is part of it? I found out early on with my show, lots of

:47:37.:47:42.

religious people came, a few were offended, but for the most part

:47:42.:47:46.

they stayed and listened and there was a dialogue afterwards. Some

:47:46.:47:49.

bloke came up to me after the show once and said, I really liked it

:47:49.:47:54.

and I just want to say Jesus is ready for you when you want them. I

:47:54.:47:59.

was about to go in and then I thought, actually, shut up. He paid,

:47:59.:48:04.

he stayed, he was there for one hour, he listened to what I had to

:48:04.:48:07.

say, and then he wanted to share with me something that had worked

:48:07.:48:12.

for him. I thought, just have a moment of humility, it is coming

:48:12.:48:16.

from a place of kindness. It is not something I agree with, I have not

:48:16.:48:20.

been able to have Christianity make sense for me, but it works for many

:48:20.:48:25.

people. You have read the Bible and the Koran in your research, because

:48:25.:48:31.

you have become a bit obsessed with religion, is that fair? I think so.

:48:31.:48:35.

I will hold you down and say you have to choose one, which would you

:48:35.:48:41.

go for? What we need with religion is eerie desires of wall so we know

:48:41.:48:47.

who to get behind! -- a you really decisive wall. From where I am at

:48:47.:48:52.

the moment, it would have to be a FE system not involving a great

:48:52.:48:57.

deal of faith. Zen Buddhism is all about presence in the moment and

:48:57.:49:01.

does not believe in, for example, reincarnation or the fact that the

:49:01.:49:06.

Buddha was born from a lotus leaf, it is being present. But I would

:49:06.:49:11.

argue it is not really a religion, Zen Buddhism is a philosophy.

:49:11.:49:15.

anybody who wants to argue with Marcus, you are saying you have

:49:15.:49:20.

full respect and you like religion? There is a huge amount of what

:49:20.:49:24.

religion provides that makes a great deal of sense to me. Richard

:49:24.:49:28.

Dawkins describes it as a delusion, but we delude ourselves all the

:49:28.:49:32.

time. We choose escapes from the reality in which we live all of the

:49:32.:49:37.

time. It is not something I find baffling. In terms of Christianity,

:49:37.:49:43.

Islam and Judaism, I find it politically abhorrent. I find all

:49:43.:49:49.

three of those faiths, the early stories and the descriptions of God,

:49:49.:49:52.

people describe themselves sometimes as God-fearing, I am

:49:52.:49:57.

literally terrified of that God, because he is scatterbrained,

:49:57.:50:00.

genocide will, racist, homophobic and all of those things described

:50:00.:50:05.

in those holy books. I can't be friends with him and he would hate

:50:05.:50:09.

me. We were talking before and saying what a varied career you

:50:09.:50:13.

have had. You have done everything, even from the podium dancing many

:50:13.:50:19.

years ago, and now the Railway children. It sounds amazing, it is

:50:19.:50:24.

in the old Eurostar at Waterloo. is so beautiful. You hear stories

:50:24.:50:27.

about a village fete cancelled because of the wrong sort of pollen

:50:27.:50:32.

in the tree or whatever, and everyone seems to give up. With

:50:32.:50:36.

this, the track is owned by somebody, the station is owned by

:50:36.:50:41.

somebody, the train is owned by somebody else. At every point

:50:41.:50:45.

someone should have said you can't put this on, but here we are on the

:50:45.:50:50.

platform with a real steam train careering up the track. There it is,

:50:50.:50:54.

Bobby is desperately trying to stop the train. Everybody said, I think

:50:54.:51:00.

we can do this. The train is over 100 years old. Handed over 1

:51:00.:51:06.

million miles in service. -- and it did over 1 million miles. After the

:51:06.:51:09.

scene when the train stops just in front of Bobby, there was a

:51:09.:51:13.

wonderful moment the other night. Just after it happened, a kid just

:51:13.:51:21.

went, a wow! That is what we are doing! You play Bernard Gibbons'

:51:21.:51:27.

role, his name is Albert Perks, who has a Yorkshire accent, you thought,

:51:27.:51:33.

this is the role for me. You asked your ageing to get to the role, and

:51:33.:51:42.

he did? How is your accent? YORKSHIRE ACCENT: I speak like that

:51:42.:51:46.

for a while before the show, just to feel like I am in the role, plus

:51:46.:51:51.

you get to speak to the audience for a while beforehand. It is a

:51:51.:51:56.

lovely story. You were not sure of the story line, but it is a feel-

:51:56.:52:02.

good... It is. And there are really good lessons for those who want to

:52:02.:52:08.

get hold of them. The author's not- so-subtle socialist agenda, for one

:52:08.:52:15.

thing. But on a basic level, the children have the humility and the

:52:15.:52:18.

kindness to understand that to ask for help is not always a demand but

:52:18.:52:22.

is the kind thing to do. They don't know, because they are not

:52:22.:52:26.

constrained in the same way that most of the adults are, about pride

:52:26.:52:32.

and hiding things. They just go, we are not managing, please help us.

:52:32.:52:36.

And then people do. I think that is lovely. There are people on both

:52:36.:52:40.

sides of the theatre, are their bits you cannot see because of the

:52:40.:52:45.

train? Part of the reason I was so keen to be in this production is

:52:45.:52:50.

the staging is breathtaking. The train comes in and that is amazing,

:52:50.:52:57.

but that are these floating stages moving up and down, sometimes they

:52:57.:53:00.

are trains and sometimes they are moving scenery, so there are no

:53:00.:53:07.

scene changes. The story is being told all the time. It is amazing. I

:53:07.:53:11.

think you can see brilliantly from wherever you are in the theatre.

:53:11.:53:17.

never got on to how you got into stand-up, we will get that later.

:53:17.:53:22.

Thanks, Marcus. Marcus will hang around to cook with Richard and

:53:22.:53:28.

test-drive a couple of gadgets. What are we looking at today?

:53:28.:53:34.

are going to love, love, love the selection of gadgets this week. We

:53:34.:53:41.

have an iPad rival from H P, a 21st century boombox and for all of the

:53:41.:53:49.

wannabe pop stars, a USP microphone. You can look forward to that later.

:53:49.:53:54.

You can still get your questions in for Marcus or Andrea Corr at the

:53:54.:54:04.
:54:04.:54:08.

It is a world of numbers and patterns in The Code. This is a

:54:08.:54:15.

number we call pyre. Richard Corrigan is cooking some Vietnamese

:54:15.:54:25.
:54:25.:54:34.

kitchen with Richard Corrigan on one side, standing in for Simon,

:54:34.:54:41.

and Andrea Corr on the other. How is your cooking, Andrea? I love

:54:41.:54:45.

cooking but I am not great at desserts. I followed a recipe once

:54:45.:54:50.

trying to make a tart and did not really understand blind bake, I put

:54:50.:54:56.

it into a blind bake them did not look at it! What sort of things do

:54:56.:55:02.

you cook? Everything, nice roasts on Sundays, I love fish, warm

:55:02.:55:07.

Mediterranean, olive oil and things. What is better, your cooking or

:55:07.:55:15.

your friend? I don't know! -- your cooking or your French. Today we

:55:15.:55:21.

are making a chocolate pot. When you are opening a restaurant and

:55:21.:55:25.

doing the menu, is the last thought the desert? No, because when you

:55:25.:55:30.

are opening a restaurant you will be reviewed. Britain has probably

:55:30.:55:34.

six major papers who will send in their top reviewer, totally

:55:35.:55:39.

uncorrupted Borg, to do a report. So everything on the menu has to be

:55:39.:55:43.

good and mean something. You have to get them out of the way. You

:55:43.:55:48.

can't leave desserts, just forget about it. What do you care more

:55:48.:55:54.

about, savoury or desert? I like the savoury, but to finish a meal

:55:54.:55:59.

with a nice pudding is really, really... A nice way to finish.

:55:59.:56:05.

Baked chocolate pot, you can't go wrong. Milk and cream, check out

:56:05.:56:11.

the website, put them in the Pam, hot. Chocolate, whatever type you

:56:11.:56:21.
:56:21.:56:23.

want. Not so heavy, not so rich. Dark and bitter, it is up to you.

:56:23.:56:28.

You can always start there and go there. Egg yolks, sugar and

:56:28.:56:33.

hazelnut liqueur. That is a custard we are making, really. Mascarpone

:56:33.:56:38.

to finish with, crushed hazelnuts and a little bit more liqueur. It

:56:38.:56:45.

is funny when you put an Irish guy in there is always some liqueur!

:56:45.:56:50.

Andrea, add the sugar, whisky it as quickly as you can, not all of the

:56:50.:56:57.

alcohol, just enough. You'll need your wooden spoon. Would you like

:56:57.:57:03.

to mix the chocolate? How long have you put this in for? Just bring it

:57:03.:57:11.

to the boil, infuse the milk and cream. Sugar, egg yolk, a tiny bit

:57:11.:57:17.

of alcohol. Just get that in. By the way, it is always good to use a

:57:17.:57:27.
:57:27.:57:27.

wooden spoon. Oh, Again! Because by whisking it, you get a lot of air

:57:27.:57:33.

bubbles and you want a nice custard. In fairness, there was a whisker in

:57:33.:57:41.

my bowl, that is why I used it. Quite misleading. Add the two

:57:41.:57:51.
:57:51.:57:52.

together. Surrey, the chocolate and milk into... Hot into cold. Nice

:57:52.:57:57.

and slowly. Doing well, Andrea. We will open our own pudding

:57:57.:58:02.

restaurant when our careers fail. That will be great. That is it,

:58:02.:58:12.

Andrea. That is a pretty simple mix. Then

:58:12.:58:21.

you fill your pots. You never do desert, then? I tried that and it

:58:21.:58:26.

wasn't very good. Who used to cook at home for The Corrs when you were

:58:26.:58:33.

there together? We all cooked and sang at the same time! No! Our

:58:33.:58:38.

mother did. But we all like cooking. What a nerve would you have done if

:58:38.:58:42.

you had not made it in music? Was there ever any thought of doing

:58:42.:58:46.

anything else? I suppose we would have gone to college and figured

:58:46.:58:54.

out something along the way. I think I would have done theatre. I

:58:54.:58:57.

think you'll like this kind of inevitable, certain things you will

:58:57.:59:04.

end up doing. -- I think your life is kind of inevitable. Have you got

:59:04.:59:08.

any more acting coming up? I'd just finished Jane Eyre in Dublin in

:59:08.:59:15.

February, but it is music at the moment. Where are we, Richard?

:59:15.:59:20.

recipe makes six, we are putting four winner. We are putting hot

:59:20.:59:25.

water in, it is called a bain-marie, which is basically a water bath.

:59:25.:59:32.

But the culinary term is a bain- marie. Into the oven. Andrea is

:59:32.:59:37.

translating for me! The hero of learning French came together just

:59:37.:59:42.

then! -- the Year of learning French. Did you learn with

:59:42.:59:48.

headphones or have a teacher? here in London, but she was French.

:59:48.:59:56.

She is French. -- a teacher here in London. 150. You can put them in

:59:56.:00:01.

the fridge, but I like eating them warm in autumn and winter time.

:00:01.:00:08.

Here is one we made earlier. We took them out 20 minutes ago, they

:00:08.:00:11.

are nice and warm in the autumn and winter time, but in the summertime

:00:11.:00:15.

you can put them in the fridge and have them cold, almost like a

:00:15.:00:21.

chocolate mousse, which is wonderful. What is that, cream?

:00:21.:00:31.
:00:31.:00:38.

Mascarpone and a little bit of the That is really it. You don't need a

:00:38.:00:45.

lot, a little bit on the side. OK? Hazelnut on the top. We have the

:00:45.:00:49.

raspberries to garnish on the side. Want to come round and we can try

:00:49.:00:58.

this, Andrea? Should I go this side? I need you to describe it in

:00:58.:01:08.
:01:08.:01:11.

French for us! Please, try. Louise, come on. I can see the silence

:01:11.:01:17.

while we dip into the chocolate. That is good! Gorgeous. You like

:01:17.:01:26.

that? Mmm. Coming up in Wayne's absence, molecular mixologist

:01:27.:01:33.

Tristan Stephenson is going to make a rum cocktail that you have never

:01:33.:01:39.

seen before. First... Hold on... are doing Oysters Vietnamese-style.

:01:39.:01:45.

Who is going to be trying them? Depends how much time we have got.

:01:45.:01:51.

We will make some time for that! is a great introduction to an

:01:51.:01:56.

oyster dish. All right, I'm up for it. Jamie has spat his tea out!

:01:56.:02:05.

"She is doing what?!" He is worried I won't be feeling well all day.

:02:05.:02:09.

First if you can pluck the year that all this happened from your

Buckingham Palace has been opened to the public. More than 4,000

:02:30.:02:33.

people queued throughout the day to see the State Rooms where the Queen

:02:33.:02:38.

has received scores of world leaders and where of her priceless

We want to help. OK, fine. Have it your way. Find some place else to

lifeguard. John? John? Sorry, man. If nothing was wrong with your

:03:29.:03:37.

vision, you would have seen that coming. That is where I went wrong.

:03:37.:03:44.

I thought it was a drama. I didn't realise it was a comedy! It was a

:03:44.:03:53.

drama. Brilliant. That was Baywatch on Deja View. Lots of clues to the

:03:53.:04:01.

year. I'm sticking - 1995 I have gone with. I was '92, '93. It is

:04:01.:04:11.
:04:11.:04:12.

not a football season! LAUGHTER What is yours? '92. OK, we will

:04:12.:04:16.

find out whether or not we are correct before the end of the show.

:04:16.:04:21.

Wayne's away. We have been bigging him up. Whilst Wayne recovers from

:04:21.:04:25.

his awards ceremony, we have a special treat. Tristan Stephenson,

:04:25.:04:34.

what have you got? Let's talk about it. You are owner of Pearl. How do

:04:34.:04:40.

you describe your cocktails? Multi- sensory. There is an element of

:04:40.:04:43.

science involved in the preparation of the drink and in the guest

:04:43.:04:47.

drinking it as well. We are thinking about how they are going

:04:47.:04:57.
:04:57.:05:03.

to perceive it. You are like the Heston Blumentahl of drinks. Yes.

:05:03.:05:07.

Lots of experimenting. You don't go to the bar, they come to you with

:05:07.:05:15.

ideas. Is that right? Yes. Like a food menu. Sounds good. What is the

:05:15.:05:21.

first one? We are going to make one, but it is very special. Oh no! We

:05:21.:05:28.

will have to have bigger gulps! LAUGHTER Make a pint for us!

:05:28.:05:31.

really important consideration is to take history and bringing it

:05:31.:05:38.

into the future. It is using some of these techniques, so the end of

:05:38.:05:45.

July marks Black Tot Day, that was the day when the rum ration was

:05:45.:05:49.

stopped abroad British ships. I will do a -- stopped aboard British

:05:49.:05:55.

will do a -- stopped aboard British ships. I will do a rum-based drink.

:05:55.:06:00.

They used to get rum as a ration? As part of their service. Did they?

:06:00.:06:04.

It started in the middle of the 17th Century. Every sailor used to

:06:04.:06:09.

get half a pint of rum a day. You will not get that much from me.

:06:09.:06:15.

Half a pint?! Mums used to get a bottle of gin. It was round about

:06:15.:06:21.

the same time. What is in there? have some central American rum,

:06:21.:06:27.

really sweet. Lots of floral flavours. Almond syrup and some

:06:27.:06:30.

sugar syrup. Do you experiment? How did you get into the science

:06:30.:06:34.

element of cocktails? When you start getting passionate about

:06:34.:06:38.

anything that you do, you look more in-depth into it and see how you

:06:38.:06:42.

can perfect things. That is a bit of salt I have put in there as well.

:06:42.:06:46.

Are these popular in your bar? is the kind of drink that we would

:06:46.:06:51.

serve in Pearl. It is fun. There is a lot going on. It gives people a

:06:51.:06:55.

reason to go out and drink cocktails rather than sitting at

:06:55.:06:59.

home making their own which is... It is nice for special occasions.

:06:59.:07:07.

Exactly. It is more fun. I missed something there, you put salt in?

:07:07.:07:14.

What is this? That is lime juice. We are looking at 1th century, --

:07:14.:07:20.

we are looking at 18th Century. Admiral Edward Vernon reduced the

:07:20.:07:26.

amount of rum and added lime, sugar and spices and we are doing a grog

:07:26.:07:35.

variation. It is not dissimilar to a rum punch. What was that? That

:07:35.:07:44.

was water. Water?! You are diluting our drink? And we have to share?!

:07:44.:07:53.

25ml of water... And a history lesson... 10ml of almond syrup,

:07:53.:08:00.

10ml of orange curacao. I will let that is it there and we will get

:08:00.:08:04.

ready for the final part of the drink which is all about the

:08:04.:08:11.

presentation. This is how you get the drink at the bar? Exactly. We

:08:11.:08:18.

have dry ice. It creates wonderful fogs or mists when we poor liquid

:08:18.:08:27.

over it. I have got some cinnamon. It was common on Navy ships for the

:08:27.:08:34.

pusser to set fire to the rum with gunpowder and he would be testing

:08:34.:08:38.

how strong the rum was with gunpowder. We are not going to set

:08:38.:08:45.

light to it. I will need you to help me. Will people try this

:08:45.:08:55.
:08:55.:08:56.

today? There is a simplified recipe on the website. I have a

:08:56.:09:00.

traditional Navy tankard. Tim, if you could get ready with that? I

:09:00.:09:05.

will ask you to pour that into this bowl, but not just yet. We are

:09:05.:09:11.

going to light a couple of matches here. Hopefully, not burn anything

:09:11.:09:19.

too much. We will have a flower. Yeah. It brings out some of the

:09:19.:09:27.

aromatics of the rum. I will light this. Interesting, this. Let's hope

:09:27.:09:35.

it lights I'm pouring the gunpowder over the top - go! Keep going, keep

:09:35.:09:45.
:09:45.:09:47.

going. Look at that. More? Yeah. Brilliant. Wow! Do you feel like

:09:47.:09:51.

you are back on Top Of The Pops?! It should smell - it might not be a

:09:51.:09:55.

nice smell, but it will be authentic to a ship that sailed in

:09:56.:10:02.

the 18th Century. A little bit of mint on top. Where's the drink?

:10:02.:10:12.
:10:12.:10:14.

It's in there. You haven't put it in yet! LAUGHTER I was going for it

:10:14.:10:19.

anyway! You were going to drink the dry ice! I'm trying to hold back on

:10:19.:10:27.

your ration. That is delicious. Tastes lovely. Great. Thanks.

:10:27.:10:34.

Tristan Stephenson has created a less scienceer version of the

:10:34.:10:38.

Flaming Navy cocktail. If you fancy making it, go to

:10:38.:10:48.
:10:48.:10:49.

Numbers create the code to unlock the laws. He sets out to prove it.

:10:49.:10:58.

This is The Code. Let's take this circular plate here. I will measure

:10:58.:11:07.

its diameter. 26.4 centimetres. Now its circumference. That is trickier.

:11:07.:11:12.

82.9 centimetres. Divide the circumference by the diameter, I

:11:12.:11:20.

get 3.14. Let's take another circle. 12.8 centimetres. So the

:11:20.:11:25.

circumference is 40.2 centimetres. Divide the circumference by the

:11:25.:11:34.

diameter I get 3.14. In fact, whatever circle I take, divide the

:11:34.:11:37.

circumference by the diameter, you will get a number that starts 3.14.

:11:38.:11:47.
:11:48.:11:48.

This is a number we call pi. No matter where the circles are, no

:11:48.:11:58.
:11:58.:12:00.

matter how big or small, they will always contain pi. It's this

:12:00.:12:04.

universality of the number pi. In fact, if you get another number it

:12:04.:12:10.

means you haven't got a circle. Pi is the essence of circleness,

:12:10.:12:17.

distilled into the language of the code. Because circles and curves

:12:17.:12:27.
:12:27.:12:27.

crop up again and again in nature, pi can be found all around us. It's

:12:27.:12:37.
:12:37.:12:38.

in the gentle curve of a river. The sweep of a coastline. The shifting

:12:38.:12:47.

patterns of the desert sands. Pi seems written into the structures

:12:47.:12:55.

and processes of our planet. can decipher the numbers in The

:12:55.:13:01.

Code with Marcus on Wednesday at 9.00pm on BBC Two. It's time for

:13:01.:13:05.

another gadget fix and Lucy is here to provide us with three more

:13:05.:13:09.

gadgets. Marcus Brigstocke will bring one over in a minute. Let's

:13:09.:13:13.

bring one over in a minute. Let's start with this. This is a new

:13:13.:13:21.

tablet on the block. This is the HP touchpad. It is pretty minimalist.

:13:21.:13:26.

It has one button. There is not a lot going on. Loves your

:13:26.:13:29.

fingerprints. What differentiates this tablet from the rest of the

:13:29.:13:39.
:13:39.:13:40.

gang, this has got cards and stacks. All these features are cards. So

:13:40.:13:44.

this is the browser card. When you open up a new window, it gives you

:13:44.:13:50.

a separate card which you can move around, you can stack on top of the

:13:50.:14:00.

card, hence the stacks and cards name. It is all about multi-tasking.

:14:00.:14:05.

You can open up lots of things at the same time? Yes. It has a clever

:14:05.:14:10.

feature called touch to share. If you have a phone that is sporting

:14:10.:14:15.

:14:20.:14:24.

can transfer maps, photographs, things like that. It will be

:14:24.:14:29.

interesting to see where they take this. Better than the iPad? Not at

:14:29.:14:34.

the moment. Its app catalogue is pathetic. It needs a few software

:14:34.:14:39.

tweaks. Next one. This is the one I am excited about. How much is it?

:14:39.:14:49.

be best of its ability! Turn it off and on again! I would like to make

:15:19.:15:28.

it clear, I did not break it! no! What a shame. We played this

:15:28.:15:34.

early and the bass is fantastic. It is a boom box. It has done this

:15:34.:15:40.

again. It is not the product, people. Let's not panic. There we

:15:40.:15:50.

go. Oh, dear! Just keep it low. This works brilliantly as long as

:15:50.:15:59.

you can't hear it! This is the TDK two Speaker boombox. It is a really,

:15:59.:16:08.

:16:08.:16:14.

your iPod. You can plug in a flash drives, you can even plug in your

:16:14.:16:19.

guitar and a microphone if you want to get involved. When I am doing

:16:19.:16:24.

dance battles and stuff with people, I will probably bring this. And the

:16:24.:16:31.

volume goes up to 11. It breaks the traditional rules of all new

:16:31.:16:40.

control! DISTORTION of. Swedes, it is like a Radiohead tune! -- suite,

:16:50.:16:51.

it is like a Radiohead June. I swear I did not break it! Being the

is quite had the. It costs �300. -- 12 D cell batteries, it is quite

change it for optimum position depending on what you are recording.

:17:21.:17:30.

It is great for making podcasts, video calling, laying down vocals,

:17:30.:17:38.

rap or beat boxing! After the massive success with the boombox...

:17:38.:17:48.
:17:48.:18:10.

BEAT BOXES. Oh, yes! Let's listen back to that. I just need to and

:18:10.:18:16.

plug the headphone Jack. That is to test the recording levels. Let's

:18:16.:18:26.
:18:26.:18:29.

play that back. Here we go. We have a long the Auld weight, Marcus. --

:18:29.:18:38.

we have a long wait, Marcus. I like that, you are just slightly off the

:18:38.:18:45.

beat. It has worked well. Just slightly off. I have single-

two excellent gadgets! Shall I have a go on the tablet as well?!

As always, if you want more information, e-mail us. We will get

:19:01.:19:10.

back to you with all the details. Episode two of the 50s drama about

:19:10.:19:15.

the golden age of TV news. Benn Whishaw is fighting battles on many

:19:15.:19:20.

fronts, including class. This is The Hour.

:19:20.:19:30.
:19:30.:19:33.

You don't like me? It is not personal. You went to a minor

:19:33.:19:42.

public school in... Sherborne. Where you excelled at cricket,

:19:42.:19:46.

rugby and fives. I bet you were head boy. Then Cambridge, everybody

:19:46.:19:51.

hoped for a first, but you partied more than you should. Your parents

:19:51.:19:58.

were disappointed, but it was an upper... Lower second? Third?! But

:19:59.:20:07.

still, you had fun. Indeed. Whereas monks like me slaved away at a

:20:07.:20:11.

second-rate university with little of what you would call a good time

:20:11.:20:19.

for an unrecognised first, most of it in a haze of misery. And then?

:20:19.:20:25.

Welsh Guards. You have seen service? You have got a medal? Two?

:20:25.:20:31.

Absurd. So after victory at the D- Day landing you came home and set

:20:31.:20:35.

your sights on television presenting. You started at a small

:20:35.:20:42.

regional station, possibly Manchester? On the sports desk,

:20:42.:20:47.

occasionally the outside broadcast. And before your poor in significant

:20:47.:20:53.

producer could say, how did that happen, he is watching you on

:20:53.:20:58.

television, while he, after 40 years of service, is stuck in

:20:58.:21:03.

Manchester. It is not personal, I do not like privilege. You are a

:21:03.:21:08.

snob! You can spend 60 minutes watching

:21:08.:21:10.

You can spend 60 minutes watching The Hour on Tuesday nights at 9pm

:21:11.:21:15.

on BBC Two and BBC HD. Mark is Brigstock is in the kitchen

:21:15.:21:21.

with us, are we good at cooking? Before I launched my own technology

:21:21.:21:29.

show! I enjoy cooking, and I love oysters. We will open them and

:21:29.:21:33.

dress them, but we need to go through the basic ingredients for

:21:33.:21:38.

the Vietnamese dressing. Rice wine vinegar, finely chopped shallots,

:21:38.:21:43.

sesame oil, pickled chilli and ginger. -- pickled ginger and

:21:43.:21:53.

chilli. You have to go slow for me. That is all chopped up and put in

:21:53.:21:59.

there. Could it for at least 10 minutes until the vinegar almost

:21:59.:22:03.

evaporates. And then you can start opening the oysters. I have cracked

:22:03.:22:07.

the back of them to make it a little bit easier. Then I will get

:22:07.:22:12.

some seaweed. I take it you have done this before? I have not.

:22:12.:22:18.

but I am not very good. I have made it a little bit easier, because I

:22:18.:22:22.

would like to go to one of your showers without seeing you in

:22:22.:22:28.

bandages. The this is pretty healthy and good for you? A bad

:22:28.:22:36.

oyster smells like a rotten egg. good oyster smells pretty dodgy!

:22:36.:22:41.

We're just going to put them on the seaweed. Or maybe it is this the

:22:41.:22:49.

way that smells? It just smells of the sea. -- or maybe it is the

:22:49.:22:56.

seaweed that smells? You can use your oyster knife to turn them over.

:22:56.:23:06.

You can go onto the next one. Are our oysters and things like

:23:06.:23:12.

that...? They are Dorset rocks, they can go milky at this time of

:23:12.:23:17.

year. But these ones are beautiful. You can put them straight onto the

:23:17.:23:23.

seaweed. I forced Kathy Burke to eat oysters are my I've Never Seen

:23:23.:23:29.

Star Wars radio show, and she was six. It is the texture that many

:23:29.:23:36.

people find difficult. Here we have a little bit of the pickling liquor

:23:36.:23:46.

that came with the ginger. A little bit of fish sauce. A tiny bit of

:23:46.:23:56.
:23:56.:23:57.

soy sauce, not a lot. A little bit of sugar. And we keep the lines --

:23:57.:24:06.

the line was there, just like that. Ricky says, should, do have

:24:06.:24:09.

boundaries or are some jokes just too far? Or do you think there

:24:09.:24:13.

should be no limits on comedy? don't think there should be

:24:13.:24:19.

prescribed limits as such. I think it is important for people to

:24:19.:24:24.

discern what they like. If a comedian is needlessly offensive

:24:24.:24:28.

and that is all they can trade off, then hopefully no one will find

:24:28.:24:33.

them funny. Although if you find an audience that is put --

:24:33.:24:37.

sufficiently perverse, sick and stupid they will enjoy it. But the

:24:37.:24:42.

responsibility should be on whoever is writing the jokes. I have my own

:24:42.:24:46.

boundaries of taste and stay within them. They are not the same

:24:46.:24:50.

boundaries for everybody. Is that when you get weird stuff thrown at

:24:50.:24:57.

you? Like a pathetic leg? I had one thrown at me, then the compere of

:24:57.:25:01.

that show is John Bishop, he made it a story that he told on stage,

:25:01.:25:06.

he told lots of other people, so someone did it again one year later,

:25:06.:25:12.

they flung their leg at me. You think I would be prepared second

:25:12.:25:22.
:25:22.:25:26.

time around, it was worse. What is the oysters, put them on the

:25:26.:25:31.

seaweed. Dressing over the top, fish sauce, soy sauce, ginger and

:25:31.:25:36.

lime juice, a touch of sugar. Them the coriander and the crispy

:25:36.:25:43.

shallots. Then before you eat them, just another squeeze of your line.

:25:43.:25:51.

They look fab. Just squeeze it with your hand, you get more lime juice.

:25:51.:25:57.

Are you going to eat one? Over there! While we finish these we

:25:57.:26:01.

will go over to Tim and Andrea with will go over to Tim and Andrea with

:26:01.:26:08.

some Deja View news. Louise will have to eat an oyster

:26:08.:26:18.
:26:18.:26:20.

on televisions in! The year was 1993. It was 1992/93. You did well.

:26:20.:26:26.

This is the exciting bit, how long do we have before the end? A few

:26:26.:26:34.

minutes? Louise... I will have to take a minute. Don't all watch me!

:26:34.:26:39.

It is not for your entertainment. You are on television, people will

:26:39.:26:49.
:26:49.:26:49.

be watching! I will have an onion. Do you like wind, Andrea? I think I

:26:49.:26:59.

I don't like coriander, I will pick my coriander off. That is a little

:26:59.:27:06.

bit picky, isn't it?! I might be picky, but it is just something

:27:06.:27:16.
:27:16.:27:17.

that happens. The tart is fabulous. Louise, you promised to do it.

:27:17.:27:27.
:27:27.:27:31.

bite one! Not the shall! Not to the shell! That is absolutely delicious.

:27:31.:27:40.

Are you sure you do not want one? Let's all do oysters. Louise, are

:27:41.:27:45.

Let's all do oysters. Louise, are you not having a go? I am having a

:27:45.:27:49.

go. It is like one of those uncles, go. It is like one of those uncles,

:27:49.:27:56.

he just keeps going on. Ready? You have one minute. You have 45

:27:56.:28:03.

seconds, Louise. I am embarrassed now, people will be at home

:28:03.:28:10.

thinking, what a wimp. This is great television. Go for it! All in

:28:10.:28:20.
:28:20.:28:24.

one! Don't watch me! Wow. I feel like I am on I'm A Celebrity, Get

:28:24.:28:29.

Me Out Of Here! What did you think? Me Out Of Here! What did you think?

:28:29.:28:33.

It tasted lovely. The sauce tasted lovely. Is there tomato in the

:28:33.:28:40.

sauce? No. That is all we have time for, many thanks to Andrea Corr and

:28:40.:28:44.

Marcus Brigstocke. Next week we are joined by Lee Mears and Natalie

:28:44.:28:52.

Live cooking, the best of this week's TV and celebrity chat to set up your Sunday.

Tim Lovejoy and Louise Redknapp are joined by Andrea Corr and Marcus Brigstocke, and Michelin-starred chef Richard Corrigan cooks up a storm in the kitchen.
