Expect making, exploring, super-sizing, dancing,

fact-finding and laughing.

We've only got a few minutes,

0:00:100:00:11

so get ready for some more fun from the Let's Go Club.

0:00:110:00:14

Fact fans, today we're finding out all about transport.

0:00:160:00:20

Buses moving,

0:00:200:00:22

ships cruising, chuffing trains,

0:00:220:00:26

jumbo planes, walk to places,

0:00:260:00:29

speedy skaters, helicopters hovering and motorcars motoring.

0:00:290:00:35

Strap yourself in and let's get to those facts.

0:00:350:00:38

First up, traffic lights were used before cars were even invented.

0:00:390:00:44

Let's shed more LIGHT on this.

0:00:440:00:46

The first traffic light was used outside the Houses of Parliament in

0:00:460:00:50

London to tell horse-drawn carriages when to stop and when to go.

0:00:500:00:55

The only problem was that the light was powered by gas and

0:00:550:00:57

eventually it exploded!

0:00:570:01:01

Wow! That fact just BLEW my mind.

0:01:010:01:05

Next, there's a type of mosquito that lives in the London

0:01:050:01:08

Underground. I think we need to dig deeper.

0:01:080:01:13

The mosquitoes have set up home in the busy train tunnels,

0:01:130:01:16

because they like the warm and damp conditions underground.

0:01:160:01:19

But mosquitoes aren't the only animals that call the Tube

0:01:190:01:22

home sweet home.

0:01:220:01:24

Mice, foxes and even tortoises are all deep down neighbours.

0:01:240:01:29

It's hard to keep track of all those animals.

0:01:290:01:33

All aboard! Next stop, fact number three.

0:01:330:01:38

The first explorers to travel by hot-air balloon were a sheep,

0:01:380:01:42

a cockerel and a duck. No, I'm not quackers.

0:01:420:01:47

This brave bunch went up, up and away in

0:01:470:01:49

a balloon test flight that lasted ten minutes.

0:01:490:01:54

A duck was chosen, because it was used to flying high,

0:01:540:01:57

a cockerel, because it couldn't fly away and

0:01:570:02:00

a sheep, because it was the most like a person.

0:02:000:02:03

Now that's un-baa-lievable!

0:02:030:02:07

And finally there was once a traffic jam

0:02:070:02:11

so long that people were stuck in it for 12 days.

0:02:110:02:15

Now, that's a hold-up you'd want to steer clear of.

0:02:150:02:19

This bumper-to-bumper gridlock happened in China, because there

0:02:190:02:23

were too many roadworks and lots of cars and lorries breaking down.

0:02:230:02:26

People who lived nearby helped the stranded drivers by selling

0:02:260:02:30

them food and drinks. A do-it-yourself drive-through.

0:02:300:02:34

I wonder if they sold traffic jam sandwiches? Fact.

0:02:340:02:38

You can join the Let's Go Club too.

0:02:410:02:43

Grab a grown-up and head to the CBeebies website.

0:02:430:02:46

There are songs to sing, things to make and do, and CBeebies Radio too.

0:02:460:02:52

Remember, we're the club that never closes.
