Hello, my name's Frank. What do you do before bed?

0:00:060:00:11

Do you have a bath or a glass of goat's milk?

0:00:110:00:15

Well, Russell in tonight's story could do with some ideas to

0:00:150:00:18

help him nod off for the night.

0:00:180:00:21

The story's called Russell The Sheep. And it's by Rob Scotton.

0:00:210:00:25

Russell the Sheep lived in Frog's Bottom Field.

0:00:270:00:30

At the end of a long, busy day,

0:00:300:00:33

night fell and the sheep got ready for bed.

0:00:330:00:36

BAA

0:00:360:00:37

Soon, all was quiet.

0:00:370:00:39

Except for...Russell.

0:00:390:00:43

No matter how hard he tried, Russell could not fall asleep.

0:00:430:00:49

"Maybe if it were really dark," he thought, "I'd be able to sleep."

0:00:490:00:55

But the really dark really scared him.

0:00:550:00:58

"Perhaps I'm too hot," he thought.

0:00:590:01:02

"Brrr! Perhaps I'm not."

0:01:020:01:05

Russell pulled up a pillow.

0:01:050:01:08

But the pillow hopped away!

0:01:080:01:10

Hopping mad.

0:01:100:01:12

"Maybe I need a better place to sleep," he decided,

0:01:130:01:17

and went for a walk.

0:01:170:01:18

Russell spied the boot of the rusty car.

0:01:180:01:22

It was too cramped.

0:01:220:01:24

He tried the hollow of a tree.

0:01:260:01:29

CREEPY CHATTERING

0:01:290:01:31

That was too creepy.

0:01:310:01:33

Russell even tried sleeping on a branch.

0:01:330:01:38

But it was too crowded.

0:01:380:01:40

OWLS HOOT

0:01:400:01:41

What's a sheep to do?

0:01:410:01:44

Russell thought he would never get to sleep,

0:01:440:01:47

but then he had a brilliant idea.

0:01:470:01:50

What if he tried to count things?

0:01:500:01:53

That would make him fall asleep.

0:01:530:01:56

Russell counted his feet.

0:01:560:01:58

One, two, three, four.

0:01:580:02:03

Not tired.

0:02:050:02:06

"Mm, I guess I need more feet," he decided.

0:02:070:02:11

What next? The stars!

0:02:110:02:15

Russell counted each and every one. One, two, three, four, five...

0:02:150:02:22

..600 million billion and ten.

0:02:240:02:28

And Russell was wide awake.

0:02:280:02:31

He counted them again.

0:02:310:02:33

Um, 600 million billion and ten. And still wide awake!

0:02:330:02:41

Russell thought very hard.

0:02:420:02:45

In fact, he thought so hard his hat went ziggy zaggy.

0:02:450:02:51

"I know," he shouted, "I'll count sheep."

0:02:510:02:55

One, two,

0:02:560:03:00

three, four,

0:03:000:03:03

five, six,

0:03:030:03:07

seven, eight,

0:03:070:03:10

nine.

0:03:100:03:12

"Still awake," he said. And sighed.

0:03:120:03:17

Then Russell realised he had forgotten to count one very

0:03:170:03:21

important little sheep - himself.

0:03:210:03:24

Ten.

0:03:250:03:28

Russell felt a tickle and a twitch and then...

0:03:280:03:34

..sound asleep.

0:03:360:03:38

RUSSELL SNORES

0:03:430:03:45

By now it was morning and all the other sheep in the field

0:03:480:03:52

began getting ready for the new day.

0:03:520:03:54

Soon, everyone was up.

0:03:540:03:57

Everyone, that is, except for Russell.

0:03:570:04:01

RUSSELL SNORES

0:04:010:04:03

That story was called Russell The Sheep.

0:04:070:04:09

What a great trick Russell discovered to help him get to sleep!

0:04:090:04:13

But it's a shame it took him all night to find it.

0:04:130:04:16

I hope the rest of the sheep let him enjoy a lie in.

0:04:160:04:20

Now it's time for you to go to bed.

0:04:200:04:22

Perhaps you can try counting sheep to get to sleep,

0:04:220:04:25

just like Russell did.

0:04:250:04:27

I hope you have sweet dreams.

0:04:270:04:29

See you again soon.

0:04:290:04:30

SNORING

0:04:310:04:33

What does a sheep do to fall asleep? Frank Skinner finds out about a sheep who is a little out of step with the rest of the flock.
