1:34 pm
it's thought this bank holiday weekend will be worth around £2 billion in sales for pubs, bars and restaurants. that's a massive £400 million more than they'd usually expect to make in a normal thursday to sunday period at this time of year. sarah rogers been to see how businesses are getting ready for a bumper weekend. right, let's put this behind the bar, yeah? it's ready, set, go, on a big bank holiday for the queen's platinum jubilee, with the hospitality industry hoping to make a royal mint from the celebrations. at this pub in london, there's extra staff, extra stock, and even extra drinks, in honour of her majesty. we are making the queen's tipple, which is a take on her favourite drink, which is the zaza. and you just load it up with ice, lemon, a shot of gin, double measure of dubonnet, which is a wine—based aperitif.
1:35 pm
there we go. and finish that off. and there we go, queen's tipple. are you hoping that the tills will be ringing this...? ring, ring, ring, that's all we can hope for! the more the merrier. so we're hoping that this is just the start of a great year to come. only this weekend will you see a corgi modelling with a coronation ricotta pizza. but you'll be lucky to get in here over the next few days. bookings for lunchtime have skyrocketed. i'm expecting partial carnage, but great carnage. i feel like it's going to be really festive, wholesome, one of those proud to be british kind of moments to have everyone together. almost 50,000 people, or the equivalent of four saturdays worth of footfall, are expected to grab a bite at this food market over the extended holiday. and those visitors get to crown a culinary king or queen, by voting for their favourite dish. and yes, there's another
1:36 pm
patriotic pizza. god save the queen. so this dish is our grandma slice, which is inspired by queen lizzie, the nation's grandma. you should come try it, because it's super crispy, nice and fluffy and extra cheese. and after all that food, perhaps something to wash it down with. pubs are expected to pull some 90 million pints over the four—day weekend. this is a specialjubilee ale. and that number of pints is expected to bring £105 million boost to the industry. but perhaps not this one. well, the queen is definitely outshining the prince at this pub in west brompton, who are royally invested in pulling in the punters. the weekend's been fantastic. you might notice behind us that we've got a big mural of queen elizabeth to celebrate her and her 70 years of service. for us, that has got us
1:37 pm
so much extra business. so, thank you very much, queen elizabeth. four days, it's like a friday and three saturdays all together. it's a great chance for the community to come out to celebrate with us, and together. and the prep is paying off already on day one of the bank holiday. although times are tough, many people seem ready for a party. it's such a good vibe. everyone's loving it. a good excuse for a party. that's what i say. thejubilee, i mean, everyone loves the queen, but everyone loves a beer, don't they? so, what can you do? i actually work shift work. so i do four on, four off. so i'm used to the four off! long live the long weekend. in yorkshire they decided to put their own special stamp on the royal occasion by making their own film featuring the queen's most memorable moments. cathy killick went to meet those behind it.
1:38 pm
since her coronation in 1953, the queen has inspired people from all walks of life and all generations to celebrate her reign. visits to our region always cause the crowds to gather. the film—makers, both amateur and professional, captured the important moments. at the yorkshire film archive, the footage is carefully preserved for all of us to enjoy. and to mark the platinum jubilee, they've made a film of the highlights, called seen to be believed. we're pointing our camera firmly at the north, where the people of yorkshire and the north east were celebrating the coronation in style. oh, it's been really, really lovely to go into the vaults and delve in there and look at all these original cine films. and there's a real heart to it. it's about people and it's about that relationship with each other and community. and how they've come out to celebrate these royal occasions. and cine film—makers over the years have brought their cameras out for special occasions,
1:39 pm
and what's more special than a royal visit? there is another reason why i'm here. 45 years ago, i took part in a silverjubilee parade at school here in york. it was filmed, but i have never seen the footage. but graham has found it. do you fancy going back to 1977? let's take a look. go for it! it was a day of home—made fun, and myjob was to lead the parade. our tabards were made of plastic bags, and in thejubilee carriage, our own royal couple, the headmistress and her husband. what a nostalgia trip. thank you so much. and look what i still have. i knew it would come in handy! there's great pleasure to be had looking at these old films. this footage was shot in sheffield in 1954, by billy ibberson. i think father's footage basically started outside the sheffield town hall, if i remember rightly. for his son charles,
1:40 pm
they're a window on the past. his father was the master cutler, and therefore, had a ringside seat with the queen at an incredible display at hillsborough stadium. he thought it was wonderful, because it was such an opportunity to take pictures of your queen, your monarch, that he thought was tremendous. yes, very proud of it. and so he should be. the efforts of all these film—makers preserve a history, not only of the queen, but her subjects here in yorkshire, too. today, it's easier than ever to catch it all on camera. but back then, it was rare, making these images every bit as precious as the memories they evoke. memories that will be made this weekend, just as they were in 1953. during her 70 years on the throne, the queen has inspired countless creators around the world to produce art in tribute to her, from andy
1:41 pm
warhol's famous screen prints to the six pistols�* music. warhol�*s famous screen prints to the six pistols�* music. now sir michael morpurgo has written a book about the life of the queen, and has been speaking to the bbc�*sjohn maguire. once upon a time, there was a little girl. one day, they say, she planted a tree with her papa — an oak tree. quite soon, that tree was higher than she was. and quite soon after that, she discovered she was a princess. she didn�*t feel like a princess. she would go and sit on the grass under the branches of her oak tree and was always happy there. just being a girl, not a princess at all. princesses were in books. her life was going to be her own story. and that story is told by sir michael morpurgo
1:42 pm
in his book to mark thejubilee, a fairy tale titled there once is a queen. it follows the young princess as she grows up, gets married, learns in kenya that she�*s become queen and her coronation. it celebrates her seven decades as monarch. this woman has kept an extraordinary promise that she made when she was really very, very young, that she would serve the people. that was herjob. and it all sounded then, and people can be cynical about it and say, "well, she would say that, wouldn�*t she?" actually, she�*s done it. and that�*s what�*s truly remarkable. here�*s this woman of 96, still looking at her papers, still carrying out the duties that she promised she would carry out. and it�*s... yes, i�*m sure it�*s for herfamily, but primarily it�*s for the people. and she feels that very deeply, her duty towards the people, towards the role that she has. he first met the queen as a young
1:43 pm
army cadet in india in 1961. but it was more than half a century later, and after she�*d seen a production of sir michael�*s most celebrated story war horse, that she told him about her lifelong love of horses. the words she used now captured in the book. whenever she went to saddle her horse to go for a ride, she would reach up and lay her hand on his neck, which felt to her like warm velvet. she would talk to that horse, like she talked to no—one else. he was her best friend. well, the queen told me that when she had herfirst horse, she reached up. she was only about ten, i think, and put her hand on the neck of the horse and said it felt like warm velvet. and i�*m doing it now. and it�*s just such a... she should have been a writer. forget the queen stuff. she should have been a writer. it�*s a wonderful, wonderful way of describing it, warm velvet. this is one of three farms for city children, set up by michael and his wife in 1976. as the name implies, children from urban areas visit to learn
1:44 pm
about farming, the land, and where their food comes from. i think one thing we forget is just how much the royal family, with the queen as its head, helped with charities. and princess anne is our patron, and she�*s worked with us now for, oh, i�*d know, 30, 40 years helping us. and she supports us all the time, which is wonderful. and she also quite likes horses, as you know. the illustrations are by michael foreman, a long—time collaborator, who shared the ambition to produce a book to celebrate the differing aspects of the queen�*s life and reign. we loved doing it together because, in a sense, what we were doing was tracing our life from birth until now, through the life of this fairy queen. and we really enjoyed it. and his illustrations are just a joy. wonderful. i hope she liked them too. i shall ask her one day. the tree the princess plants in the story will be featured in the huge platinum pageant on sunday. from an acorn to a great oak,
1:45 pm
from a princess to a queen, it will celebrate 70 years of british life and 70 years of unwavering service. among the big names who will be appearing on stage at the specialjubilee party tomorrow night is sir rod stewart. naga munchetty went to have a chat with him at home and he admitted that, despite his years of experience, he�*s a bit nervous. a warning there is some flash photography. hello! hello, darling. how are you? i�*m really well. i�*m mega excited about what you�*re going to do. i will behave myself, i promise. oh, no, don�*t do that. don�*t do that. 0k. are you excited? very, very excited. i went down yesterday for the first rehearsal, and it�*s so overpowering, you know, to, eh... i�*m so happyjust to be part of it, because there was a point when i thought, oh, no, they don�*t want me. and i was over the moon when i was signed on. you�*ve done the rehearsals.

1:47 pm
you know, i don�*t want to overdress and i don�*t want to under dress. # one more time, baby...# one thing you have to think about, it�*s gorgeous today, the weather. so we don�*t know if it�*s going to rain yet. we�*re all keeping a really close eye on the forecast. you are very active on stage. like, you run up and down. if it�*s raining, are you going to be doing that? yeah. if i fall over, i fall over, and i have fallen over many times. but you know what? i�*ve performed in the rain many, many times. and if you make the audience part of it, and i go out and i get wet and the band get wet, then it�*s all a big party. don�*t worry about the weather. that�*s the least of our problems. when you are on that stage, it�*s going to be so different with the crowds. i mean, everyone�*sjust so happy, aren�*t they? and it�*s a celebration. absolutely, isn�*t it? yeah, it�*s...�*s pride. it�*s pride in being british. it�*s the pageantry, the romance. i mean, you know, i�*ve grown up with this woman. you know, i was seven when she came to the throne. so she�*s always been part of my life, you know, and the fact that i�*ve met her on several occasions makes it even more important for me.
1:48 pm
do you remember the coronation? yeah. we had a street party, with a loaf of bread and a pot ofjam and 30 people. did you see it on telly? no, didn�*t have a telly. didn�*t have a television. i mean, it�*s so different now. somebody did have a television up the road, and it was only that big, and we all gathered around it. you kind of alluded to what the queen means to you. what does she mean to you? you�*ve met her on a few occasions — that must have been amazing? as i said, she�*s been so much part of my life, it�*s almost, she�*s almost, i don�*t know, almost like a sister, you know? she�*s always been in the background of my life. cheering. i�*ve met her a couple of occasions. so we were doing a charity concert at st james�*s palace for her majesty and the late duke of edinburgh. and they were only sitting —
1:49 pm
i had the band here, and they were sitting ten yards away, right? and they looked terrified, because they thought i was going to do da ya think i�*m sexy? hot legs, real loud music. and i started off, # you must remember this # a kiss isjust a kiss # a smile isjust a smile...# they were so relieved, they beamed from ear to ear. who would you like to see out of the royal family getting up and shaking their thing? i don�*t know. i want everyone to shake their thing. i want the audience to shake their thing. i�*m going to shake my thing. and you are going to shake your thing. i�*ll be watching! who do you think is most likely to get up and dance out of the royals? erm, charles. why do you say that? because i love him, and my wife absolutely adores him. why? i think they�*ve got a thing going on. 0h! no! they�*re very, very friendly towards each other. i�*m going to keep that in the edit! what�*s penny going to say to that, you saying that on national telly?

1:51 pm

"oh, we arrested a man in a car with some drugs, and we took him down the station." do you ever worry about her? no, she�*s six foot three, come on. she has to go down to the station then and fill in all the forms. then she don�*t get home till three, you know. and then it�*s your turn to make the breakfast and tea in bed? i do, actually, i do. don�*t laugh, i do. i don�*t need to do anything else.
1:52 pm
sir rod, it�*s been a joy. thank you for coming all this way. thank you so much. i love our royal family. i�*m so proud of it. and may it reign for another hundred years. well said. sir rod stewart, it�*s been a pleasure. thank you. they�*re just going to bring you some breaking news here on bbc news. we mentioned earlier a train derailment that had taken place in southern germany near munich. 60 people have been injured, 16 of them seriously injured, in the incident, and we understand that at least three people have died in the accident. earlier we knew that one person had died, but we are being told that at least three people have died, 60 are injured, 16 seriously injured. the derailment took place at the southern german town near to munich.
1:53 pm
the injured in all age groups. it is not yet clear what caused the derailment, and major operation we understand from our berlin correspondentjenny hill is under way. when we get more, we will bring it to you. in the meantime. there�*s concern among some health experts that monkeypox and other infectious diseases could be transmitted to animals via human medical waste. it comes as cases of the virus surge outside of africa, where the virus is usually found. our reporter shelley phelps has more. scientists are struggling to explain the current crop of monkeypox cases. they�*ve mostly been identified in europe, which is not used to seeing the virus. according to the world health organization, more than 550 confirmed cases have been reported by at least 30 countries outside of africa, where the virus is typically found. it�*s not the first time
1:54 pm
that there have been incidents of cases outside the typically endemic countries in africa. the atypical nature currently is that we are seeing, you know, a large number of human—to—human transmission outside endemic countries, but also, you know, affecting this group, population, that has not typically been seen before. some experts also raised concerns monkeypox and other infectious diseases could be transmitted to animals via human medical waste. an opportunity for animals to tear those bags open and for rodents to get in there and get infected. it�*s all sparking a flurry of scientific research. the european union�*s drug watchdog is in talks with the maker of a vaccine against deadly smallpox to extend its use to monkeypox. its vaccine head says that
1:55 pm
while the outbreak is unprecedented, it�*s not a public health emergency. ema is, nevertheless, playing its part by actively discussing the treatment and vaccines available should they be needed, and the ema emergency task force is already activated to discuss this outbreak and possible countermeasures. countries in africa have experienced sporadic monkeypox outbreaks since the virus was first discovered in humans in 1970. in nigeria, the government has banned the sale of bushmeat as a precaution, they say, to stop the spread of monkeypox as experts say it�*s possible that it can be caught by eating infected meat. although this is not the most common transmission route. while the risk remains low, more cases of monkeypox are expected to be detected worldwide, and countries are being asked to increase surveillance. shelley phelps, bbc news.
1:56 pm
a little more on our breaking news, these are the latest pictures. you can see some carriages lying on their side. we understand that three people have been killed, we understand, and it is a major operation ongoing. location wise, it is near the southern german town of garmisch, which is near to munich. more news as we get it. life in a modern city presents many challenges. traffic, pollution and a lack of space can increase stress and be harmful to the environment. in one dutch city they�*re trying to solve some of those problems by looking up. tim allman explains. in rotterdam, a kind of revolution is taking place — up in the air.
1:57 pm
this is a new rooftop walkway that has opened to the public in the centre of the city. we want people to experience how great it is to be on a rooftop and what space we have lying there above the city which we do not use, and what the quality of that space is and what the potential of that space is. a lot of things are happening up here that, some say, could help transform the environment — rooftop farms and gardens, solar panels for energy, the potential for a whole new type of community. translation: it's importantl for the environment and also, you have more space, so you can do things on roofs and houses, then you can save space — and it works. translation: it's a unique | opportunity to see rotterdam from a higher level. normally, you drive through the city and now, you walk above it.
1:58 pm
rotterdam is a city with plenty of flat roofs, and experts say only around 3% of them are being used effectively. the potential for expansion is obvious. big ideas and sky—high ambitions — quite literally. tim allman, bbc news. now it�*s time for a look at the weather with ben rich. hello. there will be some showers to dodge through the rest of the jubilee weekend. most places today seeing some spells of sunshine, but scattered showers through northern ireland and parts of south—west scotland, northern england, wales, the midlands, the south—west of the odd one towards the south—east corner. temperature is 22 or 23, a little cooler in eastern coasts. through tonight, showers and storms down to the south, there could be quite a lot of rain across southern counties of england, mainly dry further north, the best of the clear spells out to watch the north—west where we will see the best of the sunshine tomorrow. grey and murky
