There is planet earth, our home.

0:00:420:00:44

But, of course, it isn't only OUR home.

0:00:440:00:47

Lots of other creatures live here, too.

0:00:470:00:49

From huge blue whales

0:00:490:00:51

to things so small they can fit on the end of a pin.

0:00:510:00:55

There are some creatures we don't have names for,

0:00:550:00:58

and have never even seen,

0:00:580:00:59

and if we were to travel off into the vast emptiness we call space,

0:00:590:01:04

perhaps we would find other creatures.

0:01:040:01:06

Creatures so strange,

0:01:060:01:08

that at first we may not even think they were living at all.

0:01:080:01:12

Ah, well, we know what these are.

0:01:120:01:15

These are Clangers.

0:01:150:01:18

Wee-oo-ee wee-oo.

0:01:180:01:20

And they're playing catch with a ball of Granny Clanger's wool.

0:01:200:01:25

I think Small is going for a really big throw.

0:01:300:01:33

A really, REALLY big throw.

0:01:360:01:38

Oo-ee!

0:01:430:01:44

Oops! They won't get that back again.

0:01:440:01:47

Woo-oo waa-waa doo-daa-daa-daa.

0:01:470:01:50

Small will just have to get another ball.

0:01:500:01:52

Wee-oo!

0:01:520:01:53

Hold on a minute.

0:01:530:01:55

-Wee-oo!

-Tiny Clanger's seen something.

0:01:550:01:58

Wow, it's another ball.

0:02:030:02:06

A strange, silver ball.

0:02:060:02:08

Waa-do-woo wee-daa-daa waa-wee.

0:02:090:02:11

Small's going to go and have a look.

0:02:110:02:14

Wee-woo da-da woo-woo.

0:02:140:02:15

Of course, he's going to go up in the music boat.

0:02:150:02:19

SOFT MUSIC PLAYS

0:02:300:02:35

There it is.

0:02:490:02:50

There. He's got it.

0:02:540:02:56

Woo-oo.

0:02:580:03:00

-Wee-woo.

-Wee-ee-ee.

0:03:010:03:04

Woo wee.

0:03:040:03:06

SOFT MUSIC PLAYS

0:03:060:03:10

Wee-woo-oo wee-woo-oo wee.

0:03:140:03:17

Wee-oo-ee wee-oo-ee.

0:03:170:03:20

Dee-doo doo.

0:03:200:03:21

Dee doo-doo wee!

0:03:240:03:26

Well, it seems to be a very good ball for playing catch.

0:03:310:03:35

Oh!

0:03:380:03:39

A hole-in-one. Oh, I don't think Small meant to do that.

0:03:420:03:47

BALL CHIMES Oh, it makes a noise.

0:03:490:03:53

And it glows.

0:03:530:03:54

Woo wa woo?

0:04:010:04:03

-There's Major Clanger.

-Woo waa-waa woo?

0:04:030:04:05

Major Clanger wants to know what that noise was.

0:04:050:04:08

Waa woo?

0:04:080:04:09

# Doo daa waa. #

0:04:090:04:12

Doo-daa-doo dee-dee waa-waa waa-wee-wee-waa.

0:04:130:04:16

Tiny and Small don't know anything about a noise.

0:04:160:04:20

They were just playing with a ball they found.

0:04:200:04:22

Daa woo-woo.

0:04:220:04:24

Wee-waa-waa waa-woo. Waa.

0:04:300:04:32

Here it is, Major. Catch.

0:04:320:04:34

-BALL CHIMES

-Ooo!

0:04:340:04:37

BALL CHIMES

0:04:370:04:40

Woo, daa-daa!

0:04:410:04:43

Wee-woo waa-waa woo-woo waa-wee.

0:04:450:04:48

Yes. It glows and makes a noise when it bounces against something.

0:04:480:04:53

BALL CHIMES

0:04:570:05:00

What fun!

0:05:000:05:01

-Wee woo-woo woo-woo.

-Wee woo-woo woo-woo.

0:05:010:05:04

Doo-doo doo-doo doo-doo.

0:05:040:05:06

Hmph. Major thinks the ball's fun,

0:05:080:05:10

but he's got far more important things to do.

0:05:100:05:13

BALL CHIMES

0:05:130:05:17

Bra-ra-ra ra-ra-ra-ra.

0:05:170:05:19

Hra-ra ra-ra?

0:05:210:05:22

Baby Soup Dragon wants to know what they're playing with.

0:05:220:05:26

Ee-oo-oo aa-ee-aa.

0:05:260:05:28

They don't know what it is, but it's fun to throw around.

0:05:280:05:32

Bla-bla la-la-la-la hra-hra.

0:05:320:05:35

BALL CHIMES

0:05:420:05:46

Hmm. Where's it bounced off to now?

0:05:460:05:49

BALL CHIMES

0:05:530:05:56

It's bounced all the way to Mother Clanger in her garden.

0:05:560:06:01

Oo ee?

0:06:070:06:09

-Ee oo oo.

-Ee oo oo.

0:06:090:06:10

Ee ii oo?

0:06:100:06:12

-Ee oo oo.

-Ee oo oo.

0:06:120:06:13

Mother wants to know what it is and where it's from.

0:06:130:06:17

But Tiny and Small don't know.

0:06:170:06:19

Ee oo.

0:06:200:06:22

BALL CHIMES

0:06:250:06:27

All they know is it's fun to play with.

0:06:270:06:30

Ee oo ee.

0:06:300:06:31

Oo oo aa ee oo. Oo oo aa ee oo. Woo woo waa waa ee oo.

0:06:310:06:37

Mother says that, if they don't know what it is, or where it's from,

0:06:370:06:41

then they should treat it with kindness.

0:06:410:06:45

Woo oo ee ee wee wee waa waa.

0:06:450:06:48

It might not be just a ball.

0:06:480:06:50

It might be a living thing from space, like them.

0:06:500:06:54

-Woo waa woo.

-Hra-rra gra-gra.

0:06:540:06:56

Woo oo oo.

0:06:570:06:58

Woo oo oo.

0:06:580:07:00

Hra-ra gra.

0:07:000:07:02

Sorry, ball.

0:07:020:07:04

BALL CHIMES

0:07:040:07:05

Wee hee!

0:07:050:07:07

Woo ee, ee oo ee aa oo.

0:07:070:07:09

You see? It understands. It is a living thing.

0:07:090:07:14

Oo ee?

0:07:140:07:15

Here's Granny Clanger. She wants to know what they've found.

0:07:150:07:19

Ee ee aa woo-oo-oo.

0:07:190:07:21

Wee-oo ee-ee-oo-oo.

0:07:210:07:24

Really? Granny has seen these things before?

0:07:240:07:28

They ARE living things, just like hoots are.

0:07:280:07:31

Oo aa ee-ee?

0:07:310:07:33

She wants to know where its friends are.

0:07:330:07:35

Wee oo ee oo.

0:07:350:07:36

Wee woo. Oo-oo ee.

0:07:360:07:40

BALL CHIMES

0:07:400:07:44

Oo oo ee ee ee.

0:07:460:07:48

Granny wants to know if the ball's friends are here.

0:07:480:07:52

-Woo-wee-woo!

-Woo-wee-woo!

0:07:540:07:56

It seems the ball understands what Granny is saying...

0:07:560:08:00

Oo oo ee ee. Wee-woo.

0:08:000:08:02

..and wants the Clangers to follow it.

0:08:020:08:04

They're off outside, to see if there are any more balls there.

0:08:040:08:08

RATTLE BALL CHIMES

0:08:080:08:11

Woo oo.

0:08:130:08:14

Oh, look! Granny was right.

0:08:150:08:18

There are more balls in the sky.

0:08:180:08:21

-Woo oo ee aa!

-Woo oo ee aa!

-Hra-hra-hra-hra!

0:08:210:08:23

Ee ee oo aa.

0:08:230:08:26

Granny says they must be waiting for their friend.

0:08:260:08:29

Ee ee oo. Ee ee oo.

0:08:290:08:31

Yes. Throw the ball up, Small.

0:08:310:08:34

Well done. Well done, Small.

0:08:390:08:42

BALLS CHIME

0:08:440:08:45

Oh.

0:08:450:08:46

That ball makes a different noise, and it glows a different colour.

0:08:460:08:52

And so do the others.

0:08:520:08:54

-Hoo-oo!

-Hoo-oo!

-Hra-hra!

0:08:540:08:56

BALLS CHIME

0:09:000:09:03

What a lovely sound.

0:09:030:09:05

Wee-oo. Ee-oo ee-oo.

0:09:050:09:08

BALLS PLAY A TUNE

0:09:080:09:11

Tiny wants to join in.

0:09:140:09:16

TREES PLAY ALONG

0:09:210:09:29

I think the balls rather like the music from the music trees.

0:09:430:09:47

And now they're all playing together.

0:09:490:09:52

Well, there you are. Some things aren't always what they seem.

0:10:000:10:05

The universe is full of surprises.

0:10:050:10:08

That ball is certainly not a toy to throw around.

0:10:120:10:17

It is a living thing, that loves to play music with its friends.

0:10:170:10:21

And with its new friends, too. The Clangers.

0:10:240:10:28

-ALL:

-Oo-aa!

0:10:560:10:57

Tiny and Small find a strange silver ball. When it bounces it glows and rings. It bounces into Mother's garden and they are amazed to learn from her that the ball is a living thing, like them. And Granny is convinced it must have friends nearby.
