Remember, remember
The 5th of November
The gunpowder treason and plot
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
But what of the man?
I know his name was Guy Fawkes...... and I know in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses
of Parliament.
But who was he really? What was he like?
We are told to remember the idea and not the man. Because a man can fail.
He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten. But 400 years later...
... an idea can still change the world.
I have witnessed firsthand the power of ideas.
I've seen people kill in the name of them...
... and die defending them.
But you cannot kiss an idea...
... cannot touch it or hold it.
Ideas do not bleed.
They do not feel pain.
They do not love.
Слово учителя: And who was this man? What was Gunpowder plot? What was the kings
name?

All around the world, festive days like New Year’s Eve are celebrated with fireworks. But here
in Britain, there is one night that is very special.
It’s November the fifth, Bonfire Night, and I’m wrapped up warm for some autumn fun.
Tonight’s the night for lighting bonfires and setting off fireworks. Here in Winchester,
preparations for the celebrations are under way and tonight it’s all going to get very noisy!
Bonfire Night parties take place in towns and cities across Britain. The Winchester event is free
and attracts over twenty thousand people. Steve Lewis of the charity ‘Round Table’ is the
volunteer in charge.
Joe: Steve, what’s the plan for tonight’s celebrations?
Steve: OK, tonight actually kicks off at 6pm in the city centre by our Guild Hall. There’s a torch-
lit procession where thousands and thousands of people follow a band through the city and we all
process down to the fields here. And then we’ll follow that by the lighting of the bonfire about
7.15. At 7.45 the fireworks will go off and the crowds will cheer.
Joe: It sounds like a hectic night. How many people does it take to organise this?
Steve: On the night itself, we have a hundred and eighty volunteers and many, many other
people to help us out. So it’s hundreds of people involved in an event of this size.
Joe: And be honest, is this about history or is it just an excuse to have fun?
Steve: Bonfire Night is about history. It all comes from history of England and the Houses of
Parliament. But it is great fun, too great fun for us to organise and put on and great fun for
everybody who turns up.
So how did this all start? Four hundred years ago, a man called Guy Fawkes planned to kill King
James by blowing up the Houses of Parliament. It was called the Gunpowder Plot. It failed and
to mark the event rag doll ‘Guys’ are burnt on the bonfire and fireworks are set off. Fireworks
are made using gunpowder.
Leon’s probably got the best job in the world. He lets off fireworks for a living.
Joe: Leon, talk me through the sort of display you’re going to put on.
Leon: There’s about four thousand fireworks which all create different effects. Some will go up
and go bang, some will spin up there, some will crackle, there’s whistles…
Joe: What do you think it is about fireworks that the British public just love?
Leon: It’s a great tradition that we have here. If it wasn’t for Guy Fawkes we wouldn’t be stood
here today. You know, it’s a great... I love tradition.
It’s six o’clock and time for me to join the procession. OK, it’s almost time for the fireworks
now.Well, I thought that was fantastic but what did the public think?
Woman: Well, it was really nice to come up and meet up with my friends - and watching the
fireworks, they were beautiful.
Girl 1: I thought they were really good. They were even better than last year.
Girl 2: They were really good and they were really colourful and they looked really cool.
That’s Bonfire Night over for another year – but there’s always time for a final bit of sparkle.
